Welcome to Day 7 of Mayim Bialik’s hosting stint! Through 6 days, $119,252 has been donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Food & Drink Phrases) for Tuesday, June 8, 2021 (Season 37, Game 182):
A 1951 TIME article said, “Since the war,” this 2-word term for a period of time “has been written into union contracts”
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Tim Lopez, a storytelling coach originally from Los Angeles, California
|Molly Feibel, a historic interpreter from Staatsburg, New York
|Verlinda Johnson Henning, a human resources consultant from Memphis, Tennessee (1-day total: $17,500)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Verlinda played a strong game start-to-finish yesterday—highlighted by not giving any incorrect responses—and was rewarded with a victory. I’m sure she’d love the chance to play a Daily Double, though—hopefully that comes today for her.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

The 1951 TIME article, titled “MANNERS & MORALS: The Coffee Hour” details this history of the coffee break: a labor shortage had caused employers (begrudgingly, from their eyes, as they always and still look to get as much productivity for as little money as possible from labor) to grant break time to their employees in order to get coffee. Of course, breaks are often better to increase overall morale and productivity, the article quotes one stenographer who said, “If I couldn’t look forward to some coffee…after the first hour’s dictation, I’d scream.” Thus, the coffee break has become ingrained into North American employment culture.

- Thus far, $136,652 has been donated to the National Alliance on Mental Health through 6 games. $1,636,777 has been donated from all guest hosts.
- Today’s game was another prime example as to why leaders should not bet $1 more than they need to in a “crush game” position. Molly did not bet enough in Final Jeopardy (she needed to bet a minimum of $7,400), yet Tim bet too much and would have handed Molly victory had things worked out different in Final Jeopardy.
