World Plant Milk Day

On August 22, we celebrate World Plant Milk Day because whether you know it or not, plant milk is a good, sustainable, alternative to dairy milk. Plant milk safely provides your body key nutrients and minerals, giving you the strength and endurance to live your life to the fullest.

World Plant Milk Day also reminds us that drinking plant milk has other benefits. You help to eliminate animal cruelty and reduce globalwarming — just by drinking a glass of milk! So, do your body and the world some good by raising a cold, frothy glass of delicious plant milk in a toast to your own health and the health of our world.

World Plant Milk Day – History

July 2015
Almond Milk sues

The Almond Milk brand filed a class action lawsuit against two American competitors, Blue Diamond Growers and White Wave Foods, for false advertising on the product label about the small amount of almonds — the case was thrown out.

2013
Almond milk becomes number one

Almond milk surpassed soy milk as the most popular plant-based milk in the U.S.

2011
Almond milk explodes

Almond milk sales increased by 79% in 2011 alone.

1999
The FDA says soy lowers cholesterol

The FDA ruled that 25 grams of soy protein a day could reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease.

1943
Coconut milk's horticultural benefits discovered

Horticulturalists discover that coconut milk contains properties that can help other plants grow.

World Plant Milk Day Activities

Head to the market
With the increasing availability of dairy-free products, it's easier than ever to integrate plant milk into your diet. Try buying multiple flavors and see which ones you prefer!

Apply the “plant milk theory” to other dairy
Incorporate the “plant milk theme” of personal and global health into other dairy products, such as cheese. With countless recipes and cookbooks available, you can even whip up vegan cheese at home. Most recipes require only a few ingredients. Try your hand at making everything from soft, spreadable cheeses to harder, aged varieties.

Go for a walk
Take time to appreciate your own health and the beauty of the world during a simple walk or stroll around town or in your neighborhood. To give you that energy boost, on World Plant Milk Day, gulp down a big, heaping glass of plant milk or make a smoothie. Then, go outside, take a deep breath of fresh air and remember to embrace the world we all want to save!

4 Facts That Prove Almond Milk Is King

Almond milk is religious
In the Middle Ages, almond milk was known in both the Islamic world and Christendom as a nut, considered suitable for consumption during Lent.

Almond milk is protected by the government
Within the Italian regions of Sicily, Apulia, Calabria, and Campania, almond milk is a protected traditional agricultural product.

Almond milk is not for infants
Despite its many health advantages, almond milk does not have as high a protein content as breast milk, cow’s milk, or hydrolyzed formulas, and therefore is not a suitable replacement for children under two years of age.

Almond milk likes the Golden State
The majority of American almonds are grown in the state of California.

Why We Love World Plant Milk Day

Less dairy means a better world
Cow milk is near-ubiquitous, but animal agriculture also leads to major pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. This drives climate change. By occasionally replacing cow milk with plant milk, we're helping the planet.

It’s healthy — plain and simple
Plant milk provides a long list of health benefits, including calcium, and a low sugar and calorie count. In addition, plant milk does not contain IFG-1 (a growth hormone given to cows) which has been linked to the growth of cancer cells.

It’s tasty
Plant milk comes in multiple options ranging from soy, almond, cashew, and rice, to oat, hemp, flax, and coconut. With an abundance of different tastes, you're sure to find one you'll love!

NATIONAL SURGICAL ONCOLOGIST DAY

National Surgical Oncologist Day recognizes the accomplishments of every lifesaving surgeon who specializes in abolishing cancer!

Surgical oncologists help to both diagnose cancer and cure it through surgery. Whether they perform a needle biopsy to take a sample or perform surgery to remove all or parts of the cancerous tissue, they work with a team of experts to provide you with the best possible care available.

While they also treat cancer, they strive to learn more and better understand the variety of cancers we are faced with daily. As experts in their field, they continuously seek improvements in care for their patients. From cutting edge techniques to the latest in research and therapies, surgical oncologists push toward a cure every day. Their dedication and leadership in the field of oncology make a difference in the lives of cancer patients today and tomorrow.

HOW TO OBSERVE #SurgicalOncologistDay
Donate to your favorite cancer charity such as Lean On Me Breast Cancer Network. Show appreciation to your favorite surgical oncologist. Let them know what made a difference in your care.

NATIONAL SURGICAL ONCOLOGIST DAY HISTORY
In March of 2019, Jenni Cherlin & the Lean On Me Breast Cancer Networkfounded National Surgical Oncologist Day to recognize the hard work and dedication of surgical oncologists everywhere.

About Dr. Dwight Carlton De Risi
August 22nd was chosen to honor Dr. Dwight Carlton De Risi, a world-renowned surgical oncologist with over 30 years of experience in his field. Dr. De Risi was born on August 22, 1947. He is the first trained surgical oncologist on Long Island specializing in diseases of the breast. After growing up on Long Island, he attended Seton Hall University and received his doctorate from Georgetown University School of Medicine. Dr. De Risi completed his residency at North Shore University Hospital and received his graduate surgical oncology fellowship degree from Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY – America’s first cancer institute and the first in the United States to be accredited by the Society of Surgical Oncology.

Having treated tens of thousands of patients over the years, Dr. De Risi remained a leader in his field, introducing and popularizing cutting edge surgical and diagnostic techniques, which have now become standards of care. He has been recognized and honored for his accomplishments by several organizations including Seton Hall Pre Medical Honor Society Alpha Epsilon Delta. Dr. De Risi is known in the community for his compassion and late office hours. His success is attributed to his family (which includes his wife Donna, and his four children Darren, Drew, Dara, and Deirdre), his incredible office staff, and the love and support from his dedicated patients.

Through the efforts of his loyal supporters, Dr. De Risi created the non-profit support group in May of 2000 called Lean On Me Breast Cancer Networks Inc. Since its inception, over seventy volunteers have helped guide and comfort several thousand newly diagnosed breast cancer patients through their journey from diagnosis and treatment to wellness. In addition, several exciting and enjoyable fundraising events are planned throughout the year, helping patients realize the importance of living each day to its fullest.

The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Surgical Oncologist to be observed on August 22nd annually.

NATIONAL BE AN ANGEL DAY

On August 22nd, National Be An Angel Day encourages good deeds and kindness to others. By supporting those in need and inspiring others to kindness, we display an act of an angel here on earth.

The day also recognizes those who’ve been angels to us. Sometimes we have a bad day. Whether its bad news or poor planning, we all have them. A kind word, a hug or even a pleasant atmosphere makes a difference. Other times, though, days, even weeks can be devastating. A loss, illness or overwhelming news takes the wind from our sails. Those angels provide comfort at a time when we need it most.

The same happens to the people around us. We don’t always know what others may be enduring. We can be an angel in big and small ways. Whether we know a person’s concerns or not, simply offering to join them for a meal may relieve their stress. Having someone to listen, often is something we need most.

Noticing someone’s efforts is another way we can be an angel. Letting them know you’re impressed with their stamina, talent, progress – fill in the blanks. These positive comments provide morale-boosting energy.

Any time we see someone in need, the opportunity arises to offer help. Assist an elderly neighbor with lawn care. Don’t overlook the single parents when setting up play dates. Their children – and the parents – need the social interaction, too.

Also, when you value someone’s time, effort and presence, don’t hesitate to tell them. We may be individual people, but we don’t thrive alone. Look out for each other.

HOW TO OBSERVE #BeAnAngelDay
Be someone’s angel. Lift them up when they need it. Offer an ear to listen, a hand to lift them up, or a shoulder to hold them up until they can stand again. Give patience when you least feel like giving it. Hear the pain below the complaint or the exhaustion under the frustration. Notice the worry, not the anger. Look with eyes that see the whole person, not just the fraction of a moment. Hold a hand when there’s nothing else that can be done. Dry a tear.

NATIONAL BE AN ANGEL DAY HISTORY
In 1993, Jayne Howard Feldman created National Be An Angel Day to encourage acts of kindness.

I got all of y'all hands down Best Captain: Johnathan Archer because w/o him there'd be no Federation

At orientation today, someone dared suggest I change sports loyalties from PA to Maryland.

Gig em Aggies wrote:If they said football then Maryland is good they beat UT twice when they shouldn't have p.s. I went for Maryland both times

They were referring to my Phillies hat, saying I should switch to Baltimore.

Maryland football is ran by a guy that went 2-26 at New Mexico. People act like being buds with Nick Saban for a few years suddenly changes the fact that he's not a great head coach.

Day 5: Saddest Event: The Death of Christopher Pike in Star Trek: Into Darkness.

Trecdom2 wrote:At orientation today, someone dared suggest I change sports loyalties from PA to Maryland.

Dude, don't change your sports loyalties if you don't want to but keep your sports loyalties secret. Or you can pretend to do what they suggested but secretly support your old team. :p

Trecdom2 wrote:They were referring to my Phillies hat, saying I should switch to Baltimore.

And get a plain new hat that doesn't show anyone your sports loyalties or anything about you so no one will tell you to change anything again!! :p

Day 5: Saddest Event: USS Enterprise NCC-1701 destruction cause it's my favorite Starship. :(

Varian Von Richthofen (Arian)

I'm more of a Star Wars fan like Mom than a Star Trek fan like Dad but I think should join in or I'll feel left out. So here goes:

Day 1: Favorite TOS Epsiode: Devil in the Dark
Day 2 StarTrek challenge. Favorite Federation Race: Humans cause I'm a human. Terran Pride!/Proud to be Terran! :)
Day 3 of the Trek Challenge. Favorite Starship: USS Kelvin cause it was used as a WMD when it was rammed into Nero's Ship.
Day 4: Best Captain: George Kirk from the Kelvin Timeline

My reason why George Kirk is the Best Captain is summed up in this quote:
"You know your father was captain of a starship for twelve minutes. He saved 800 lives, including your mother's and yours. I dare you to do better." - Christopher Pike to James T. Kirk (Star Trek)

Cheap Flight Day

If it’s August 23, it must be Cheap Flight Day so let’s make a deal! When we’re overtaken by wanderlust — or if it’s just about that time when we need to start planning our family vacation — we naturally check airline fares to see where — and when — we can go. But it’s a little- known fact (ok, so … with this post, it’s not so little-known anymore) that airlines lower fares on Cheap Flight Day. That’s when the bulk of the summer travel rush is over and airlines rein in those fares to reel in more customers. Let’s examine this potentially big money-saving holiday, shall we?

Cheap Flight Day – History

1920
KLM got underway

The Dutch airline, KLM, made its first flight — and still flies today. KLM is the oldest continuously-operating airline in the world.

1914
The first airline using winged aircraft got its start
The St. Petersburg–Tampa Airboat Line flew passengers across Tampa Bay in Florida. The trip is about 23 miles.

November 16, 1909
The first airline took flight
DELAG (or Deutsche Luftschiffahrts-Aktiengesellschaft) began operations as the world's first airline to fly zeppelins. The company folded in 1935.

Cheap Flight Day Activities

Buy a ticket to ride
Where do you want to go? Do you have a traveling buddy? There's certainly a ticket for you and your companion(s) at the price you want to pay.

You should spread the news
The more people buying tickets, the better it is for the airlines and for travelers. To paraphrase an old saying, "A rising economy lifts all passengers."

Carry on, my wayward children
It's usually better to carry on your luggage, so long as it meets the airline's requirements. This will allow you to get your vacation started sooner, and it will make you a more efficient traveler.

3 Sky-high Facts About Cheap Flight Day

It's only the beginning
Although August 23 is the kinda/sorta official date, prices can start dropping before that — and remain lower throughout much of the fall.

Some days are better than others
Even on or about Cheap Flight Day, some days of the week are cheaper to fly than others. Generally speaking, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are the least expensive days to fly.

There's a staggering number of Americans who fly during the summer
According to "Bloomberg News," an average of 2.8 million people each day fly between June 1 and August 31, 2019.

Why We Love Cheap Flight Day
Traveling is fun

It's especially fun to travel by air to faraway and never-before-seen places. And it's even better when that flight costs less than it would at any other time of the year.

Airline fares are confusing
It seems like airline fares change not only depending on when you're buying tickets — but at what time of day. It also seems to depend on how may days in advance you're looking to make your purchase.

Saving money is swell
The more money you save now — the more you'll have to spend when you finally arrive at your scenic destination. Yet another reason why we love Cheap Flight Day!

Health Unit Coordinators Day

Health Unit Coordinators (HUC) Day on August 23, reminds us of the important teamwork taking place in medical facilities. That’s why health unit coordinators are so vital and indispensable. They support the medical staff by performing a variety of roles — from checking in patients to preparing birth certificates. Without health unit coordinators, hospitals would be unable to navigate the procedural requirements of even the most basic health care tasks.

Hospitals and other health care centers are massive organizations that rely on hundreds of doctors, nurses, techs, maintenance people, facilities coordinators and administrative staffs to work together efficiently so that the hospital functions like a well-oiled machine. On Health Unit Coordinators Day, remember these hard-working folks helping to keep our health needs and inforrmation on track.

Health Unit Coordinators Day – History

2017
Let's make it a full week!

The National Association of Health Unit Coordinators decided to expand Health Unit Coordinators Day to a full week of recognition (August 23-29.)

August 23, 1980
NAHUC holds its first meeting

Founding president Myrna LaFleur-Brooks met with interested parties in Phoenix to chart the formation of what would become the National Association of Health Unit Coordinators, Inc.

1940
HUCs are in demand

An industry journal called "The Modern Hospital" published an article about the successful implementation of what was then called a "floor secretary." We know them better today as health unit coordinators.

How to Observe Health Unit Coordinators Day

Thank a health unit coordinator
Nobody likes to go to the hospital. But sometimes a visit is unavoidable. If you've had a medical-related experience that went better than you thought it would, thank a health unit coordinator for making it possible.

Encourage government to get involved
Email or call your elected officials to request that they proclaim August 23 as Health Unit Coordinators Day and August 23-29 as Health Unit Coordinators Week in your area.

Educate yourself
There are so many things that a health unit coordinator does. Do a little research. You're sure to discover a wealth of information — and perhaps a new appreciation of the vital role that HUCs play in modern medical care.

3 Feel-good Facts About Health Coordinating

HUCs do just about everything
The list of things health unit coordinators do seems limitless. To name just a few: checking patients in, organizing medical records, ordering office supplies, coordinating patient schedules, and prepping forms for discharge.

It takes a lot of training and education
Health unit coordinators must know more than just office clerical skills. They need deep knowledge and understanding of medical organizations, terminology and record-keeping.

They go by a different title (sometimes)
Instead of health unit coordinators, you may hear these workers referred to as medical secretaries.

Why Health Unit Coordinators Day is Important

We all need care from time to time
Without health unit coordinators, it would be much more difficult to confirm appointments — and determine the availability of both specific doctors and procedures. We would be more likely to run into walls of red tape and resistance when trying to get an answer to even the most basic health care questions.

They work behind the scenes
Most of the work done by health unit coordinators takes place without fanfare or notoriety. In fact, about the only time we notice these vital members of the medical profession is if and when something goes wrong.

Communication is key
One of the most important tasks of a health unit coordinator is facilitating the lines of communication between various members of a medical staff — not to mention all the other departments (guest services, insurance, etc.) involved in modern health care.

National Ride the Wind Day

Enjoy the last days of summer and the warm summer breezes on August 23 as you celebrate the annual National Ride the Wind Day.

The observance commemorates the anniversary of the first human-powered flight to win the Kremer prize. It was on August 23rd of 1977 that the Gossamer Condor 2, flew the first figure-eight course specified by the Royal Aeronautical Society, at Minter Field in Shafter, California. Slowly cruising at only 11 mph, it traveled a distance of 2,172 meters.

The Gossamer Condor 2 was built by Dr. Paul B MacCready and piloted by amateur cyclist and hang-glider pilot Bryan Allen.

The Gossamer Condor 2 aircraft is preserved at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

We all know that cooler air is right around the corner so take advantage of these nice days and get outside as much as possible. Test out those human-powered aircraft and make some history. Summer breezes allow us to fly human-powered. In the event you lack a human-powered aircraft, flying a kite is always a good back plan.

HOW TO OBSERVE #RideTheWindDay
Take to the air! Learn about piloting a glider or consider being a passenger. FFA certified pilots will take you soaring into the beautiful blue skies. Share your experiences

TL;DR? Here’s the important part: Parents must monitor their children’s internet usage to ensure their children are not being radicalized online.
Warning signs for parents that their offsprings are being radicalized:

Sammy Rangel, co-founder and executive director of Life After Hate, a Chicago-based nonprofit that attempts to divert people from hate groups offered the following warning signs for parents to watch for in their children:

* Change in temperament: More aggressive or defensive.
* Sudden shift in how they talk about life: Questions about minority groups.
* Increased isolation.
* More time spent online.
* Change in attire: wearing their beliefs on their clothes — or music.
* Cutting off longtime friends.

God willing last year was a fluke and they go back to being mediocre at best this coming season. I think I actually dislike UT more than OU.

Looking forward to Florida and Miami playing tomorrow night. They might not be good teams, but hopefully they'll be evenly matched and it will be a good game.

1, 2 & 3. Khan's regenerative blood (1) cured a dying little girl of illness, (2) resurrected a dead tribble and (3) reversed radiation damage on Kirk and resurrected him.

4. Kirk ended up being buried in an enormous pile of Tribbles which fell out of an overhead storage compartment when he opened it for inspection. Nyah ha ha ha! :)

I wish those genetically engineered superhumans with regenerative blood actually existed. I need a vial of Khan’s regenerative blood to be injected into me. It will certainly fix my damaged heart and I can become an Endurance Athlete again. I want to be able to run again. :(

NATIONAL MARYLAND DAY

On August 24, we usher in the 7th state to join the Union with National Maryland Day. Maryland’s coastal location brings with it a deeply rooted maritime heritage that includes an ocean battle defending the city of Baltimore at Ft. McHenry during the War of 1812. One witness to the action became so inspired, Francis Scott Key penned the words that later became our National Anthem.

Chesapeake Bay
Just over 200 years before these traditions flourished, Captian John Smith explored the Chesapeake Bay and the Nanticoke River. He kept a record of his travels, documenting the Native American people. Smith wrote about their cultures, the abundant animal, and plant life. Since this vast watershed is the largest estuary in the United States, the complex ecosystem thrives with diverse plant and wildlife.

Boardwalk
Spending a weekend or a vacation at Ocean City with friends or family is a highlight of any Maryland trip. The boardwalk and beaches provide plenty of relaxation, adventure, and fun in the sun. The Eastern Shore offers scenic views, site seeing, peaceful accommodations, festivals and events for everyone.

Civil War History
Head west to Antietam and Maryland will take you into another era. Here, the battlefields and Antietam National Cemetery hold a solemn reminder of the bloodiest singled day battle of the Civil War that occurred on September 17, 1862. Five days later, President Lincoln issued a Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation. Although Maryland was a southern state as defined by the Mason-Dixon line, it never seceded from the Union. While many families throughout the war fought on opposing sides, for Maryland families, it was a reoccurring theme.

Industry
Being located close to Washington D.C. makes Maryland ideal for aerospace, defense, and federal cybersecurity jobs. The state’s fishing industry thrives and is the largest producer of blue crabs in the state. The Oldline State is also home to McCormick & Company, Perdue Farms, Lockheed Martin, Black & Decker and Underarmor.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalMarylandDay
This beautiful state spans mountains and oceans, countryside and metropolis. Join National Day Calendar as we celebrate Maryland’s people and their history on August 24.

National Waffle Day

National Waffle Day, August 24, is finally here — and we’re starving! Whether you prefer them smothered in syrup, sprinkled with powdered sugar, or heaped with fried chicken, there’s no denying that waffles are a delectable part of the American repast.

Although waffles can be traced back to Ancient Greece, that deliciously symmetrical honeycomb shape wasn’t perfected until the 19th century. On this day in 1869, Cornelius Swartwout received the first U.S. patent for the waffle iron. Since then, breakfast (and sometimes lunch or even, dinner) hasn’t been the same.

National Waffle Day Activities

Eat waffles at every meal
Waffles aren't just breakfast items — you can enjoy them throughout the day. Try planning your entire day around the waffle: waffles with syrup for breakfast, Southern-style chicken and waffles for lunch, a Belgian waffle for your afternoon snack, and a Philly Cheesesteak wafflewich for dinner. Want to make it easy? Park yourself in between a Waffle House and a Denny's and make it happen!

Buy that waffle iron
We know — you don't really need that waffle iron. But today is an excuse to finally give in and buy yourself one. You know you've been looking at it for months, anyway.

Host a waffle party
Now that you're in possession of a shiny new waffle iron, it's time to put it to good use. Get out the butter and syrup, invite your friends over, and fry up a heap of fresh waffles. Be sure to give your guests options — jam, chocolate syrup, powdered sugar, and peanut butter are musts.

Why We Love National Waffle Day

You can enjoy them sweet or savory
From brioche to batard, regular old bread has a spectrum of sweetness — and so do waffles. Waffles are scrumptious with maple syrup or fried chicken (but preferably both!) If you're a true waffle lover, those are just two of the countless options for one of your favorite foods.

They're an international delight
Lots of countries have their own unique take on waffles. Head to Belgium for a chocolate sauce-smothered waffle in the country's capital, then travel to southern Belgium for a donut-like Liege waffle. After flying further south to Italy, you can snack on a crunchy pizzelle, then travel north for a jam-topped waffle in Sweden.

Waffles can take your sandwich to the next level
Ever heard of a wafflewich? Having waffles on either side of that hamburger patty is actually a thing. Simply toast two waffles, slather them with butter, add your favorite meat and toppings — and voila!

***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****

Guess what time it is! It is Saturday Breakfast Time! In honor of National Waffle Day, celebrating the patenting of the first US waffle iron, today is Wacky Waffle Saturday! We will open with Big Bad Belgian Waffles! We are introducing new shapes and sizes today in the form of Ghost Waffles, Mouse Waffles, Armadillo Waffles, and the all-new Elephant Waffles and Rabbit Waffles. They are really cute. These sweet, over-sized, yeasty, yummy, yumm-yumms have the deepest pockets of all waffles which make them totally excellent for holding melted butter and syrup. These warm, crispy gems are the perfect way to start your day! For the fun-loving, we have delicate heart-shaped, buttermilk waffles and for the patriotic, and the best, in our humble opinion, Texas-shaped waffles served with extra butter and plenty of rich warm syrup imported directly from our friends in Canada. Even though it is not May 4th, we will even endeavor to make our May 4th offerings of the Millenium Falcon-shaped waffle and mini-Tie Fighter waffle-ettes in pursuit all heading toward ane ominous monster Death Star Waffle. Standard square, round or octagonal waffles round out the shape options. We will just go crazy from here and boggle you with our wide variety of waffle toppings! The Waffle Topping Bar has all your waffle needs covered including genuine maple syrup, melted butter, honey, treacle, strawberry preserves, banana compote, orange marmalade, blueberry preserves, ice cream, stroop, pecans, cream gravy, fresh fruit, whipped cream and if that does not cover your needs, we will endeavor to fill special requests. Waffles are ultra-yummy! The Juice Bar is open with all the standard juices - Orange, Apple, Grapefruit and Tomato. For today only, Prune and Grape will be available. The funky one today is the reformulated Cinnamon Guava Goo, now with bits of candied waffle! Try "The Suicide" - all of them, in one glass - we dare you! It doesn't get much better than this! Start your day off the right way; munch out and go back to sleep. Of course, The Never Ending Urn of Coffee is full and ready to help you wash it all down. Come on down and start your day right Texas. You know you want to!®

It is wide-open chatting with peeps from around The World both IRL and NS. It is Texans, EuroTexans, WannabeTexans, ex-Texans, and plenty of Friends of Texans. We have it all and all are welcome. Texas Chat, 753 weeks and running! For the math-challenged, that is over 15 years! Check it out! Good stuff!
