It's Saturday, Feb. 23, Curling is Cool Day. Happy birthday to activist/journalist W.E.B. DuBois (1868-1963), the first African-American to earn a Harvard PhD. Today in 1954, children in Pennsylvania were the first to receive Dr. Jonas Salk's polio vaccine. Nearly a year later, more than 4 million children had been vaccinated against the disease. Expect some rain, with a high in the mid 40s. Here are a few things to do after you've watched Canadian curling matches today:

• Flex your brain at the 28th annual Regional Science Bowl, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Franz Hall, University of Portland, 5000 N. Willamette Blvd.

• Cheer for your favorite move at regional Chess for Success tournaments, beginning at 8:30 a.m., South Meadows Middle School, 4690 S.E. Davis Road, and Harrison Park School, 2225 S.E. 87th Ave.

• Find that missing piece at the Sherwood Foundation for the Arts sixth annual Puzzle Competition, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sherwood Community Friends Church, 23264 S.W. Main St.

• Learn CPR from Valley Catholic students, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue firefighters and Tigard police, 1 to 4 p.m., Washington Square mall, Tigard.
