    The American Music Awards (AMAs) is an annual American music award ceremony created in 1973 by Dick Clark for the ABC television network.

    Unlike the Grammys, where winners are selected based on the votes of members of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, music is selected for the AMAs through interviews with the public and fans, who vote on an official website.

    This year, Taylor Swift took the high road as she won six American Music Awards on Sunday to surpass Michael Jackson's all-time record.

    On stage, she performed her hits Love Story, I knew You Were Trouble, The Man, Lover and others.

    • Dr. Morris Nafash, research director for the Bazooka Bubble Gum Company, whose job it was to test the texture and elasticity of the gum and to develop new flavors, is pictured measuring with an outside caliper a bubble blown by Josephine Zack on 16 September 1949 in New York.  Brooklyn-born Dr. Nafash came to his post after 11 years as a researcher at Columbia University's department of chemical engineering.  He blew about 100 bubbles a day and thinks kids probably won't ever blow bubbles much bigger than at present because the kid's face gets in the way.
