Indianapolis 500

They call it “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” — for a reason. The Indianapolis 500 is the world’s most iconic automobile race. Indy cars, as opposed to the stock cars of NASCAR, whiz around the 2.5-mile oval track at speeds exceeding 200 mph for a total of 500 miles. (That’s 250 times around!) First run in 1911, the race is now held on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway — known to racing fans around the world as the Brickyard. If you go, get there early, bring sunscreen, and get set to witness motorsports history.

Frenchman Simon Pagenaud qualified with the top speed this year — making him the pole-sitter — meaning he’ll start the event on the inside of Row 1.

INDIANAPOLIS 500 TIMELINE
1911
Long drive

Ray Haroun won the first Indy 500 race with a time of 6 hours and 42 minutes.

1977
Four-time winner

AJ Foyt became the first quadruple winner of the Indy 500.

1992
Photo finish

Al Unser Jr. beat Scott Goodyear by less than a half-second, the closest Indy 500 ever.

2005
She's #1 (for a while)

Danica Patrick became the first woman to lead the Indy 500, although she didn't go on to win.

2018
Name says it all

Aptly-named Australian Will Power won the Indy 500 although he didn’t hold the lead for good until the the final laps.

INDIANAPOLIS 500 ACTIVITIES
Watch

Nearly 5 million viewers watched the Indy 500 last year on ABC. Pop some popcorn, plop down on the couch, and join the excitement. You never know what might happen in the unpredictable spectacle of Indy car racing.

Join the fun at the Brickyard
Even people who aren't big fans of automobile racing have the Indy 500 on their bucket list to attend. Like the Kentucky Derby, or the Super Bowl, or the Masters golf tournament, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Learn about the history of the race
Many books capture important moments in the history of the Indy 500. You might start with "Black Noon: The Year They Stopped the Indy 500," about the race in 1964 that began with a massive wreck that killed two drivers.

FAST INDY 500 FACTS
Who's that kid?

Troy Ruttman was 22 years old when he won the Indy 500 in 1952.

Whoosh!
Arie Luyendyk clocked in at 237.498 mph during a qualifying lap in 1996.

Four trophies
Three drivers have won the Indy 500 four times – Al Unser, AJ Foyt, and Rick Mears.

Got milk?
Indy 500 winner Louis Meyer drank a glass of buttermilk in Victory Lane after the race in 1936. It's been a tradition pretty much every year since.

Conserving fuel
Both World Wars put the Indy 500 on hold — forcing cancellation a total of six times. Other than that, the race has taken place every year since 1911.

WHY WE LOVE INDIANAPOLIS 500
A century of speed

This is the 103rd running of the race. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which hosts the event, was built in 1909. The first race took place in 1911.

There's lots of drama
In 2011, Dan Wheldon of Great Britain overtook American J.R. Hildebrand on the final lap to win. And racing legend Al Unser was almost 48 years old when he won in 1987. Who says older people can't drive?

It's huge!
The IMS is the largest sports venue in the world, with a seating capacity of 257,000. You could fit the entire city of St. Petersburg, Florida inside!

World Multiple Sclerosis Day

World Multiple Sclerosis Day, falling on May 30, invites dialogue on the disease. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic progressive disease where the insulating covers of the nervous system are damaged. MS is also known as encephalomyelitis disseminata, and its symptoms include muscle weakness, double vision, and mental/physical problems. Due to the lack of research studies on the disease, the exact causes behind it are generally unknown. Many scientists believe that there might be a connection between the onset of the disease and genes and/or nerve-cell dysfunction. Furthermore, there is no permanent cure as of yet. The symptoms can be relieved using the right set of treatments and medication.

HISTORY OF WORLD MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS DAY
The first World Multiple Sclerosis Day was celebrated in 2009 by the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF). MSIF was officially established in 1967 as an international body that coordinated with national MS organizations belonging to many countries like Turkey, Slovakia, India, and the U.S.

The federation aims to bring light to MS and the scientific research related to it. The theme for this year’s World Multiple Sclerosis Day is ‘Connect.’ This theme, which continues from 2020 through 2022, focuses on bringing the world together by forming a connection with each other as well as the self for the sake of better care. MSIF spends the whole month of May and early June spreading awareness and hope about MS through their themed campaigns.

Around 2.8 million people suffer from MS each year. This disease relates to damaged myelin sheaths that cover the nervous system in the spinal cord and brain. The damaged myelin sheaths become covered in lesions or plaques, and this is where the disease gets its name — ‘multiple sclerosis’ means ‘multiple scars.’ MS’s exact causes remain unknown, but some scientists attribute genetics, infectious agents, and cell dysfunction to the disease’s causes. Symptoms include muscle spasms, speech and swallowing problems, coordination and balance issues, depression, mood swings, and so forth. While there’s no permanent cure for MS, ongoing research relates to treating the symptoms with drugs and neuroprotection strategies.

WORLD MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS DAY TIMELINE
13th–14th century
Viking Gene Component in MS

Scientists identify two separate MS cases from the 13th and 14th centuries, determining that the ‘Viking gene’ may be a factor behind MS diagnosis.

1967
MSIF Establishment

The Multiple Sclerosis International Federation is established to bring together the world MS organizations in order to raise awareness about the disease.

2010
The Most Common Nervous System Disease

MS is found to be the most common autoimmune central nervous system disorder, with more than 2.5 million people affected worldwide.

2017
Complicated Tests with Difficult Diagnosis

It is confirmed that no one set test can accurately detect MS in people as they would have to go through multiple tests for the doctors to even determine the disease.

WORLD MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS DAY FAQS
What day is MS Day?

World Multiple Sclerosis Day falls on May 30 every year. In fact, the whole of May as well as a part of June is dedicated to spreading information about MS through public campaigns and charity runs.

What month is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month?
Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month takes place in March. MS organizations and advocacy groups hold special educational events and awareness campaigns to educate people about the disease.

Is there a symbol for MS?
Yes, it is represented by an orange awareness ribbon.

HOW TO OBSERVE WORLD MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS DAY
Support MS survivors

Show solidarity by providing support to MS survivors. Talk to them and treat them just like a normal person. Many studies show that special treatment can be detrimental for patients, including MS patients, as it can take a toll on their self-esteem and mental health.

Participate in MS organizations’ activities
Whether it is a walk, a seminar, a dinner, or any other charity funding event, participate in the activities to further show your support. You will also get to learn more about MS and its related factors.

Spread awareness
One of MSIF’s main goals is to get the world talking about MS. You can do this, too, by spreading awareness about the disease in your social circle. You can use hashtags related to MS on social media and start conversations about the disease, donations, treatments, and research.

5 FACTS ABOUT THE NERVOUS SYSTEM THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND
Two parts of the nervous system

The nervous system is divided into two parts — one is the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the other is the peripheral nervous system (the rest of the nerves in the body).

Fast neuron cell transmission
The alpha motor neurons, located in the spinal cord, transmit signals at a whopping rate of 268 miles/hour.

Irreplaceable neurons
Neuron cells can often not be repaired or replaced and this is why any damage can be permanent.

More cells than stars in the Milky Way
There are more nerve cells in our brains than there are stars in the Milky Way.

The longest nerve is the sciatic nerve
The longest nerve in the human body is the sciatic nerve, which runs from the spinal cord all the way to the tips of our toes on each foot.

WHY WE LOVE WORLD MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS DAY
It’s a celebration of support

Humans are social animals who need the support of each other to see them through the highs and lows of life. Without us understanding each other’s hardships, it can become extremely difficult to continue. Thus, lending words of encouragement and positive affirmation to each other can do wonders.

It’s a celebration of hope
Today’s medical advancements in all medical fields have led to a significant decrease in mortality rates. Several studies related to MS are ongoing, even now as you read this article. So, hang in there because there’s always hope for a better tomorrow.

It’s a celebration of empathy
The MSIF’s thematic tagline ‘I Connect, We Connect’ calls for a deep understanding of another person’s pain. It also invites dialogue to discuss solutions and better treatment and care for MS survivors.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day, May 31, for many Americans, conjures up images of hamburgers, hot dogs, swimming pools, and summertime . But the last Monday in May serves, most importantly, as a time to honor those who died while fighting in the U.S. Armed Forces. It’s a holiday steeped in somber American history and tradition. The day actually began as “Decoration Day,” following the Civil War, when mourners placed flowers on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers. Yes, Memorial Day has also come to signify the “unofficial” start of summer, but let’s remember the heroes who made it all possible.

WHEN IS MEMORIAL DAY 2021?
Men and women who’ve served and sacrificed their lives in the U.S. Armed Forces are honored on Memorial Day on May 31.

HISTORY OF MEMORIAL DAY
The Civil War ended in the spring of 1865 when Robert E. Lee surrendered the last major Confederate army to Ulysses S. Grant at the Appomattox Court House on April 9. Over 620,000 soldiers died in the four-year conflict. General John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic (an organization of Union veterans) would eventually select May 30, 1868, as a day to pay tribute to the fallen:

“The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land…”

Logan apparently chose May 30 because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. By the end of the 19th century, Memorial Day ceremonies were being held on May 30 throughout the nation. States passed proclamations, and the Army and Navy adopted rules for proper observance at their facilities.

The crowd attending the first Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery was approximately the same size as those that attend today’s observance — about 5,000 people. Small American flags were placed on each grave — a tradition still followed at many national cemeteries today. In recent years, the custom has grown in many families to decorate the graves of all departed loved ones.

By 1890, each Northern state had made Decoration Day an official holiday. But this was not the case in the South, where states continued to honor their dead on separate days until after the First World War.

The May 30 date held for decades. But, in 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May in order to create a three-day weekend for federal employees. The change took place in 1971. The same law also declared Memorial Day a federal holiday.

TRADITIONS OF THE DAY
Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings, and participating in parades. It’s the three-day weekend that kicks off the summer season and the time for hanging out at the beach and lakes, and barbecuing with friends and family. But Memorial Day is also the most solemn American holiday — a day to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice while defending their nation.

Towns and cities across the country host grand Memorial Day parades every year, often featuring senior veterans and military personnel. Some of the biggest parades take place in New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. Cemeteries and memorials are also visited by Americans, with some citizens wearing or holding red poppies to symbolize those who have fallen in war. This tradition has been around since World War I. Weekend trips and parties are also arranged to balance out the somberness of the day and welcome the summer.

BY THE NUMBERS
620,000 – the number of soldiers who died on both sides of the Civil War.

45 million – the number of men and women who have served in a time of war for the U.S.

3 P.M. – the time of day when a moment of silence is observed by Americans throughout the country on this day.

MEMORIAL DAY FAQS
When is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day is on the final Monday of May each year.

What is the National Moment of Remembrance?
In 2000, President Clinton signed a law requiring all Americans to observe a moment of remembrance at exactly 3 P.M. local time each Memorial Day.

Should flags be flown at half-mast?
Yes, flags should be flown at half-mast until noon.

Will there be a lot of traffic on Memorial Day?
That depends. Do you consider 32 million automobile travelers each year “a lot?”

What’s the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day?
Although many people celebrate all veterans on both holidays, Veterans Day is distinct from Memorial Day in that it specifically celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day is meant to honor those who died while serving. That said, it is never inappropriate to thank a veteran for his or her service, regardless of what day it is.

What makes Memorial Day a federal holiday?
A federal holiday is one that has been designated as such by the United States Congress. On these days, all non-essential federal offices close and their employees must be paid. Typically, many private-sector companies also give their employees a paid day off. Although this is not federally mandated the way it is for government offices.

HOW TO OBSERVE MEMORIAL DAY
Pay your respects

Lay flowers on the grave of a family member or friend who died while serving. If you don't personally know any fallen soldiers, visit a local cemetery anyway. After all, they made the ultimate sacrifice for you.

Participate in the National Moment of Remembrance
By doing so, you'll be joining millions of Americans in national unity to honor Memorial Day for what it truly is — a day to remember those who laid down their lives in service of their country and its citizens.

Fly the flag
If you have an American flag at home, be sure to fly it at half-mast until noon, then raise it to full mast for the rest of the day. The practice of lowering and then raising the flag has been observed for over 100 years to symbolize America's persistence in the face of loss.

5 CREATIVE WAYS TO DECORATE FOR MEMORIAL DAY
Unfurl those flags

Often people store their American flags and raise them only during patriotic holidays. This is definitely one of those days.

Line your walkway with mini flags
Nothing honors our deceased veterans like dozens (or even hundreds) of flags in your front lawn and entryway.

Red, white, and blue layered cake
It’s a decoration you can eat.

Stars and Stripes windsocks
It’s festive, fun, and patriotic. Need we say more?

Symbolic flowers
Even if you haven’t lost a loved one who served in the military, you can still honor the fallen with flowers at home. Red, navy, and blue dahlias combined with white rose silk flowers can make a stunning visual combination.

WHY MEMORIAL DAY IS IMPORTANT
Reflection

While the outdoor grilling, parades, and beautiful summer weather are some of our favorite perks of Memorial Day, the last Monday in May is the best time of year to quietly reflect on the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. They make us feel inspired and challenged to be better— and that's a wonderful feeling!

Summer — almost
We know, we know — summer officially begins on June 21. But in the minds of all Americans, summer actually begins on Memorial Day. That means it's totally okay to dust off the grill, fill up the pool, and unplug.

Family
Since Memorial Day is a federal holiday with a built-in three-day weekend, we have an extra day to catch up on quality time with family members. For those of us with relatives who died while serving in the military, Memorial Day is sacred.

Autonomous Vehicle Day

Embrace the future of travel on Autonomous Vehicle Day, celebrated yearly on May 31. While self-driving cars have until recently only lived in our imaginations (or on the silver screen), technology and science have combined to bring us the dawn of a new era in travel, when automobiles can go from one place to another without anyone touching the wheel. Founded to honor the advances in the autonomous vehicle industry and to recognize the potential opportunities thereof, Autonomous Vehicle Day shows us how close we are to a sea change in the way the world travels.

HISTORY OF AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE DAY
Autonomous vehicles are not a new concept; the legend of flying carpets is the earliest form of human imagination dreaming up a driverless vehicle. Multiple technology innovations over the years have brought autonomous vehicle development to where it is today such as the guidance system of torpedoes and General Motors’ 1958 Chevy, which had pick-up coils allowing this model to steer itself. In fact, this journey began almost 100 years ago, when army engineer Francis Houdina attached a radio control system to a car, allowing him to control it via remote control. To demonstrate features like turning, moderating speed, and honking, he drove this car around the streets of New York. Apparently, the driverless car spooked passersby, who took to calling it the ‘phantom car’.

Of course, innovation in autonomous vehicles is not limited to cars alone. Local Motors developed Olli, which is an automated electric, cognitive shuttle, which can transport up to 12 passengers at a time. Additionally, self-driving passenger vehicles, self-driving buses, and autonomous commercial trucks are also being developed. The Department of Defense is also purportedly developing self-driving military vehicles.

Entrepreneurial ecosystem platform Emerging Prairie and American technology talk show host Marlo Anderson founded Autonomous Vehicle Day in 2017.

AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE DAY FAQS
What year will self-driving cars be available?

Predictions in 2016 mentioned 2020/2021 as the time autonomous vehicles would be mainstream. While the pandemic has derailed the plans for the moment, expect to see much more innovation in the future.

What are the five levels of autonomous vehicles?
Automotive experts break autonomous levels down to levels from 0 to 5, all with varying degrees of automation, ranging from almost no automation to complete driverless vehicles.

Which cars are fully autonomous?
Models like the 2020 Tesla Model S., 2020 Volvo XC60, and the 2021 Toyota RAV4 are all autonomous.

HOW TO CELEBRATE AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE DAY
Learn about autonomous vehicles

Celebrate by doing the very thing the founders of this day intended — learn more about autonomous vehicles and their history in the world. Also, learning more about the past innovations and explorations of autonomous vehicles can tell you more about where we’re headed.

Share your experience
If you’ve been fortunate enough to set foot (or see) an autonomous vehicle in person, don’t be shy, share your experience with the world. Post about this on social media or simply talk about it. Tell the world what these vehicles can do. Your experience can help excite more people about this innovation.

Attend autonomous car expositions
Keep an ear out for special autonomous car expositions or showcases, and make sure to attend them if you can. It’s a great chance to learn about the latest technology driving this sector and meet fellow autonomous vehicle enthusiasts at the same time.

FUN FACTS ABOUT AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE DAY
Stats support it

The Brookings Institution says one-quarter of all cars will be autonomous by 2040.

Major companies all have a stake
Apart from automotive giants, major companies like Google, Apple, Amazon, Cisco, and Microsoft are also exploring this technology.

Governments are investing in this, too
Governments across the globe are investing trillions of dollars into automated technology.

From Mars to cars
NASA technology used in Mars rovers would be incorporated to control Nisan MotoCorp's fleet of driverless cars, the company revealed.

There's a special place for such vehicles
North Dakota proposed Autonomous Friendly Corridors for such vehicles.

WHY WE LOVE AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE DAY
We're going (back) to the future!
Self-driving cars are what the movies and sci-fi books have promised us for a while now, and we're excited to see how this reality will look. This day helps us take a quick stroll down memory lane and see how reality compares to the showbiz version of autonomous cars. So far, they've surpassed our expectations.

Safe driving is a thing of the future
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported around 94% of all traffic crashes are caused by human error. Reducing the human role is expected to reduce car accidents and save lives. This also has the add-on benefit of saving money. If you don’t crash, you don’t need to rehabilitate your vehicle, saving you countless dollars over the years.

It inspires everyone to share in our love of autonomous cars
The autonomous vehicle industry has been making great strides to change the future of travel as we know it, and we are here for the revolution. If more and more people knew about it they can be prepared for what will be our future.

"The muffled drum's sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo;
No more on life's parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.
On Fame's eternal camping-ground
Their silent tents are spread,
And Glory guards, with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead."

Embrace the future of travel on Autonomous Vehicle Day, celebrated yearly on May 31. While self-driving cars have until recently only lived in our imaginations (or on the silver screen), technology and science have combined to bring us the dawn of a new era in travel, when automobiles can go from one place to another without anyone touching the wheel. Founded to honor the advances in the autonomous vehicle industry and to recognize the potential opportunities thereof, Autonomous Vehicle Day shows us how close we are to a sea change in the way the world travels.

Not happening. If I am in a vehicle that is not restrained by rails or a track, there needs to be a human in command.

National Heimlich Maneuver Day

National Heimlich Maneuver Day is on June 1 and we are geared up to honor an important method that can help save someone from choking. The Heimlich maneuver is essentially an abdominal thrust where you place your fist slightly above the navel of a person who is choking. Then, with your other hand, you grasp your fist and shove it inward and upward to expel the object on which the person is choking.

HISTORY OF NATIONAL HEIMLICH MANEUVER DAY
It wasn’t very long ago that these life-saving abdominal thrusts were devised by Dr. Henry J. Heimlich after reading an article in the “New York Times.” In 1972, the article stated that more than 3,000 people died in the U.S. due to choking. Until then, the common method to relieve a person from choking was slapping them on their back, however, several doctors suggested that it might do more harm than good as it might push the object further downwards and cause more damage.

This inspired Dr. Heimlich to devise an improved method to help a choking victim that could be practiced by the public and not just healthcare professionals. He published his informal findings through an essay titled ‘Pop Goes the Café Coronary’ in an issue of “Emergency Medicine” and, today, this is what we all know as the Heimlich maneuver.

The Heimlich maneuver has saved many people over the years. However, doctors recommend that this method only be used on conscious people and that you should call 9-1-1 before you start implementing the maneuver. It’s surprising to note that Dr. Heimlich used the maneuver himself at the age of 96 years when he saved a woman in his nursing home.

National Heimlich Maneuver Day is important as it can save many lives. The dedicated day also kicks off National Safety Month. We all can make a conscious decision to learn more about the method and educate others so that we are prepared the next time an unfortunate choking situation takes place.

HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL HEIMLICH MANEUVER DAY
Get certified in first-aid

This National Heimlich Day, why not equip yourself with some life-saving skills that can come into use in emergency situations? Register yourself for a local first-aid class and get certified.

Educate others on the Heimlich maneuver
If you are already trained in the Heimlich maneuver or have enough knowledge about it, you can use it to educate your family and friends. By doing so, you’ll potentially help save many lives in the future.

Learn how to perform the Heimlich maneuver

5 IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT CHOKING YOU MUST KNOW
Time-sensitive

The rapid blockage of oxygen to the lungs can be fatal within a few minutes for a choking victim.

Causes
Choking is caused when an object is stuck in a person’s narrow airway.

Risk-factors
The common risk factors for choking in adults include poorly chewed food, alcohol consumption, and poor dental fittings.

Symptoms
The most noticeable symptoms of choking include coughing, gagging, inability to talk, wheezing, and clutching the throat.

Prevention
A choking accident cannot be alleviated with slapping on the back but, instead, the Heimlich maneuver’s abdominal thrusts should be used.

WHY NATIONAL HEIMLICH MANEUVER DAY IS IMPORTANT
It prevents avoidable deaths

Choking is a serious life hazard and if there is complete obstruction of the airway, which stops the inflow of oxygen to the lungs, a person can die within four to six minutes. The Heimlich maneuver can help save lives from choking accidents and prevent avoidable deaths.

It has saved thousands of lives
The Heimlich maneuver has already shown its effectiveness and importance over the years since its inception. This method has helped save around 50,000 lives already and continues to save many more.

It can be performed by the public
It is important to note that this method has been specifically devised so that anyone can perform it, not just healthcare professionals. If you encounter a choking accident in public, you can start with the method while help is on its way and try to assist the choking victim.

Global Day of Parents

In 2012, the UN General Assembly declared the first ever Global Day of Parents. Since then, it has been held annually on June 1 to honor parental units around the world. Being a parent is one of the most universal experiences, but it’s definitely not a walk in the park. For one, it has its challenges long before kids are even born. With many complications resulting from pregnancy, just having a healthy parent is something to be grateful for. And while many of us didn’t appreciate being nagged to clean our rooms, someone had to help us fight off the dust bunny invasion. Honestly, if we had never learned to handle tiny responsibilities like that, we’d have no hope of coping with the adult world. So let’s use this day to say thanks to our first teachers and nurturers. And if you happen to be a parent, give yourself a big pat on the back (seriously).

WHEN IS GLOBAL DAY OF PARENTS 2021?
The value of parents and parenthood is celebrated on Global Day of Parents on June 1.

HISTORY OF GLOBAL DAY OF PARENTS
Parents are a beacon of a child’s life. They lay the foundation for children, and nurture and equip them with the skills that are necessary throughout life. Parents protect their children and make countless selfless sacrifices to ensure their growth.

On Global Parents Day, children express their gratitude to their parents for all that they have done for them. Really, our relationship with our parents is the most important and true bond that most of us will ever have, and our parents’ dedication towards us is respected and cherished on this day. Those of us who have a friendship with our parents and are able to have a healthy relationship based on trust and respect rather than authority or strict guardianship are lucky. It is truly a blessing to have good parents.

It goes both ways, with parents also recognizing that they have a primary responsibility towards their offspring and the importance of their roles in the development of their children. It is essential for a child to grow up in a healthy environment with healthy boundaries, and parents are the best role models for that. Studies show that trauma and emotional wounds sustained by a child greatly hinders their development and outlook on life, and is an overall barrier to achieving the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals. It may not seem much at face value, but parenting has an impact on economic prosperity and social development.

During the 1980s, the United Nations started to focus on issues related to the family, and how the emotional- and mental well-being of a child branches out into other spheres of development on a large scale. On December 9, 1989, the General Assembly passed a resolution that proclaimed the year 1994 as the International Year of the Family. In another resolution in 1993, May 15 was decided on as the day for the observance of the International Day of the Families, every year.

On September 17, 2012, the United Nations declared June 1 as the day to observe Global Day of Parents. The day aims to stimulate awareness on the importance of parenthood and its role in providing protection and the tools needed for positive development in children. Parents are, after all, the first teachers and human interaction that a child is exposed to. Community leaders, parents, children, teachers, and family organizations get together in celebrating the day and promoting effective parenting.

Campaigns and educational programs are also widely hosted for parents and to encourage stability within nuclear families. Related organizations also use this day to promote the model of a two-parent nuclear family.

TRADITIONS
There are many holidays throughout the year on which we appreciate and express gratitude and love to our parents and grandparents. While traditions for Global Day of Parents are similar to that of other celebrations like Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day, today, people go beyond simple gift-giving and flowers. Acknowledging that parenting is difficult and that parents try their best, children give back and support their parents with the same TLC that their parents gave them.

Since Global Day of Parents is an official observance initiated by the United Nations, many special announcements, rallies, proclamations, and events are organized and programs and entertainment nights are hosted by the community.

GLOBAL DAY OF PARENTS BY THE NUMBERS

HOW TO OBSERVE GLOBAL DAY OF PARENTS
Read all about Global Day of Parents

You don't have to go far to learn more about this special day. Really, there's tons of good info on the UN's website, so technically, you don't have to leave your bed. Of course, we don't advise an all day siesta if you have little things like a job or children to worry about. But if browsing the internet isn't enough, consider dropping by your local library. Apparently, this parenting thing's a pretty big deal.

Exchange your thoughts on parenting with others
Want to hear stories about what happens when you leave a kid alone with a marker? We won't spoil the ending, but there's no better day to find out than this one. Aside from funny stories, you might also come across a few useful tips. In fact, some of the best insights come from your own parents. So when stop by, don't be afraid to ask for some secrets of the trade. If you're not ready for that yet, at least try to get some cookies or something out of the deal.

Watch a movie about parents and kids
It's a family day and that means it's time for a family movie. There are a wide array of films out there that feature parents and children. Whether it's sci-fi-, action or drama, there's one thing you can be sure of: there will be a heart-to-heart talk (not “the talk”) and it's going to give you a serious case of the feels. What's special here is that whatever forms it takes, a family is still a family. We think it's safe to say that the Lion King proved that a warthog and a meerkat can make excellent guardians.

5 SPECIAL FACTS ABOUT A PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIP
It is not voluntary

As with all ties of blood, the parent-child relationship is a special permanent one that bears the tests of time.

The most interactions
Parents and children interact more with each other than with anyone else in any other relationship, be it a sibling or a friend.

Your mom was right!
As much as we deny it, our parents really do know what is best for us as they have more experience in life and all of its struggles.

The pains of growing
It is a fact that children will eventually grow up into adults and have their own lives and families, but the bond with their parents will remain forever and is timeless.

You will channel your parents.
Whether it is genetic or just the patterns of behavior you picked up from them, you will one day walk and talk like your parents and probably adopt a few annoying habits of theirs that you swore you never would.

WHY GLOBAL DAY OF PARENTS IS IMPORTANT
It reminds us to respect others

One of the first things we're taught as kids is to respect others, especially our elders (even though, for some reason, many parents don’t like being referred to as ‘elders’). But respect isn't only for those who are older than us. Regardless of age, it's something that has to be earned. Our parents have supported us through the ups and downs, all while dealing with their own personal issues (yea, parents actually have personal lives...weird). Needless to say, they're deserving of some R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

It encourages fathers to take a more active role in parenting
Time and time again, research shows that children benefit from having fathers play an active role in their lives. It’s easy for dads to stay out of the spotlight and let moms take over parenting duty, but today’s a reminder that a little interaction can go a long way. Politics and business might not be best topics of conversations (assuming your kids can say those words to begin with), but everyone understands a smile and a game of catch.

It reinforces that supporting a household is a team game
Parenting is really a team game. Even if you are a single parent, it doesn't hurt to have some reinforcements. But to form the best team, we have to recognize that both men and women play an equal part. So whether the helping hands are spouses, friends, or relatives, everyone has to split time between being a breadwinner and caretaker. Diaper duty's a doozy, but if you get really good at rock, paper, scissors, you can avoid it most of the time (almost).

Balasai: My agenda is hardwork knowledge and supporting ideas which lead to development fast and fast government services for common people and accountability in government and faster claims.

Interviewer: Hmm Can you elaborate on it?

Balasai: Simply come to a case when I enter I don't know how to get citizenship I need to take four hours to understand if there is a proper guide it will be done in minutes. And it takes 1 day to get approved if there is hard work it would be done in minutes. My map claims take 5 hours to get mapped if there are people get respond immediately then it takes minutes.There is a lot of confusion in rp most people had best ideas to get implemented but no one takes care of it I am not blaming all few people respond but most of them does not do it so we need to do it so
only a few are accountable to common player we should made them accountable to all.

Interviewer: I see, efficient administration is somewhere on the agenda. After the crisis caused by Refugia, India has suffered a great diplomatic set back. So, what are your plans to revive India's diplomacy?

Balasai: One should win at home then at the out side the deligate should win the hearts of people and then diplomacy. But my plan to get diplomacy is start from where you stop we had a lot of friends earlier we lost it we need to get them back a person can be convinced easily with the words that come from the bottom of our heart we are pure we do not had any illness in our heart let's prepare a team for it containing four people one find them two identify their timings three prove ourselves four gain their respect if we can't we can use sama Dana bedha dandophaya for ex a region is in conflict we try to convince them but not possible they had any need like rp map provide that to them they will be our friends forever.

Interviewer: Alright, What's your plan on recruiting people in the IAF?

Balasai: Background verification a people who want to play game for india will see for a chance to serve it it is necessity for us but it is opportunity for them so we did not need to recurit for iaf we need to recurit for india but we need to make sure that all the information about iaf is clearly sent to people we did not get failed to recurit we failed to give them information give information efficiently do as many recuritment drive say to the citizens efficiently we will definitely win I suggest background edit before giving citizenship so that real players of India and no bots or puppets came to India so we get less solders to iaf.

Interviewer: You have advocated for a long time to boost recruitment to NS India. So, what is your blueprint for recruitment?

Balasai: I believe hardwork wins sramayeva jayathe we know people want to join any nation at first prepare information efficiently information presentation is necessary then template it and use it to send to the five founderless nations just pin them to dossier and see activity and send telegram you may say after seeing this any one can do it it is correct any one can do it but no one is not doing it we had people let's prepare a team give them powers and offers we get citizens of it fails try till win we are here to work every work is mixture of good and bad we had order to work only work hard. We can use recruit bot also.

Interviewer: Well now this will surely give a clear message of people underestimated your abilities. My next question is about Hindu Puri, Hindu Puri is an veteran in politics of NS India, so how will you win? What's your victory mantra?

Balasai: Every person has a weekess I had also listened about hindupuri even my close friend in ns says that he is planning to vote hindupuri as he managed good relations with other regions of ns as a deligate but what about recuritment what about services hindupuri does not had improved both of them even indusee does not do my motto if any idea came let's take a step and test it not to think about it not to give permission not to say them to get permission if they had done why did we lost my estimaation is that minimum we can recurit 1 people a weelk there are 10 years still india emerged there are 520 weeks there should be minimum 520 players but it didn't so they failed I am believing on work true heart give respect they are enough for a player to win against others without politics I am saying one thing to people raise your voice. See what benifit india get and you get by their rule if it is satisfactory vote to them don't listen to others even me. India need fresh ideas and rulers.

Interviewer: Well, that's a point. What is your opinion on HP's work as MEA?

Balasai: He is a good worker as mea as I listen but you only say we lost our reputation he did not get sucess to get it back I love everyone as a player but come to hard work he is not hardworking enough to win peoples hope I appreciate him to successfully completed his tenure.

Interviewer: Okay, What is your opinion on South India?

Balasai: South india is the region which I interacted personally as I lest india for some time to help my brother I had made agreement to South india to provide rp in return of getting players they are good people but they are fearing that they might be intervened by us they think we are selfish they see bad side of india even I win or not I am still trying and try to improve relationship. I have to write a test now please don't mind I will contact you after 5 :30.

Interviewer: What are you're plans to tackle with regards to employing, engaging every citizen?

Balasai: We don't need to employ every citizen but we need few citizens to work efficiently I believe every citizen will have an idea to develop we will give them powers and permission and let them work hard to help india if there are still unemployment then we employ them as subordinate to the person who have idea every person will be given help to develop project and everyone should submit there progress each 3 days and we will give extra support if it is good enough If unemployment is still there we will send them to recruitment teams.

Interviewer: What is your plan for the parliament?

Balasai: The parliament is only a room in discord every minister will have two officials below them they assist.

Interviewer: Can you elaborate?

Balasai: Hmm in every matter and every minister and official is accountable. Every week president talk to citizens along with.

Interviewer: Now you are evading the question, I asked what laws do you have in mind?

Balasai: laws to their own ideas to get implemented to get use Of their ideas. The right to get citizenship within 3 hours at day time. The right to question the government in any late of services. The right to complain to president. The duty to be loyal to India.

Interviewer: Hmm Okay, my next question is about moderation RMB, what are your plans for IC moderation?

Balasai: We don't need moderators at all as our people are good we need to remove conflict among them rmb moderator is not necessary if all nations are verify to be good and in IC moderation is required to see harmful behaviour but it should be secret.

Interviewer: That's really a terrible idea, anyways the Last Question, When will India be NS Superpower?

Balasai: India will become ns superpower if we stop conflicts among us if we does not have hatred among us if we work with universal brotherhood if we encourage development ideas if our government is accountable we learn from mistakes If all this conditions are satisfied we can be NS super power in a decade.

Interviewer: Thank you for the Interview.

Interview with candidate for WAD election Hindu Puri

Written by Madhyarashtra

Interviewer: Welcome Shri Hindupuri Ji!

Hindu Puri: Hello Madhyarashtraji. Namaste. Thanks for interviewing me.

Interviewer: It's a pleasure. I would like to start asking you a few questions.

Hindu Puri: Yeah sure.

Interviewer: Great. My first question is, how does it feel to be contesting for the position of WAD again?

Hindu Puri: I feel honoured to contest for the post again. Its an opportunity to do something fruitful for the region. I am 23, and I am unsure whether 2-3 years down the line, life would give me opportunity to play NationStates. I ll like to serve the region as long as I am here. That doesn't mean I plan to be WAD for 2-3 years. It means that I want to contribute to the region as long as possible.

Interviewer: Ah. I see. Well, could you explain to the new nations who have recently joined Nation-states India, about the challenges that you had face, during your tenure as the WAD of India?

Hindu Puri: It was a turbulent time when I took over as the WAD in Feb 2019. We had a player called Hamramstan who tried to break the region. He was successful in carrying along a few nations along with him, that too, a few senior nations. He tried everything within his means to prevent a peaceful transfer of power. Some people used to say that India is over as a region now. Hamramstan along with his allies planned to raid us too. We did not have an active military that time. So we had to close the region down to prevent raids. I must thank Shri Hindu Mahasabha for standing along with me and helping to build the region back again. Hamramstan insisted on allowing non WA nations to vote for WAD polls. Then he brought in some fake nations since it was very easy to make non WA fake nations. We had to literally start from scratch. We were very successful in giving India a functional Parliament in that tenure.

Interviewer: I see. Well, could you explain Hindu Mahasabha's role in building the region?

Hindu Puri: Hindu Mahasabha played a key role in saving the region that time. He did a great job as External Affairs Minister. There are alot of other things too, which I won't like to discuss on a public forum since it is related to defense and security of the region. I also thank Awell Islands and Indusse for their role.

Interviewer: I see. Well, moving on to present times, what was the situation in the cabinet during the crisis with 10KI?

Hindu Puri: XKI was an issue personally very close to my heart. Though we always had embassies with them, when I took over as WAD, I greatly focussed on building relations with them. Indusse took it to higher levels of diplomatic partnership. However, during the crisis, XKI failed to stand up for India as an ally. I have no problems with them making allegations on the basis of what they heard from the international community, but they should have heard our side given our years long alliance and embassies. They failed to do that. I litreally begged them not to revoke embassies. But it seems they had made up their mind. So no amount of reassurance could stop that. From our side Govt of India did whatever was possible from our side to retain their embassy.

Interviewer: Ah. What was India's Relationship to 10KI prior to the revocation of embassies?

Hindu Puri: India and XKI were certainly close allies. We had embassies since many years. During my tenure, I invited one of their then Ministers to address the region on our Independence Day. That was the highest honour that we could give anyone.

Interviewer: I see. Well, moving to the WAD Elections, what are your promises to the People of India?

Hindu Puri: I have posted my Sankalp Patra on the RMB. It contains a list of promises I make to the region. Ennumerating each of them here would probably make this answer very long.
However, the focus is on building on the good work of the current administration.
Key areas would be ensuring the Parliament to function in an orderly manner, boosting diplomacy and making the RMB even more lively than it is today. Our RMB Moderation team has done a great job and we will take it to further heights if elected. I would also focus on putting young leaders in charge of key assignments to build a credible future leadership for the region. People like Aryaman and Whole India make us optimistic about the future. They have worked very hard as Ministers in the present government. Another key area of concern is regional stability. We don't want any kind of disputes in the region. Recently, there has been a lot of Left-Right wing debates in the region leading to mutual animosity. Our WAD Indusse was unfairly blamed by both wings to be biased in favour of the other. I totally dismiss these charges.
Indusse did the best possible.We would build on Indusse's work and ensure whatever animosities remain are sorted out. A properly functioning Parliament with roboust systems in place would ensure that I hope. I once again credit Indusse for his stellar contribution to the region. He did whatever was possible to iron out differences between Left wing and Right wing.

Interviewer: Ah. Well, coming to Aryaman and Whole India, they have done incredible work, like Aryaman has made the Roleplay very active, while Whole India has made the New Constitution, what is your message to them?

Hindu Puri: My message to them, and to you too, Madhyarashtra, is that you all are the future of the region. If I am elected, I ll surely do whatever is possible within my means to boost youth leadership in the region and make India a roboust democracy. You will also see more fresh faces other than those mentioned in the Government.

Interviewer: Thank you. Well, what is your vision of India's future?

Hindu Puri: My vision is to make India a region which is big enough for everyone. For people of all races and religions, for men and women, for LGBT people, for people who are not from real life India, for everyone.
We can have differences and coexist. We need to show NationStates and the world how our Sanatan Dharma preaches the principles of Vasudeva Kutambakam. We dream to be a super power on NationStates. As far as diplomacy goes, my vision is very straightforward. We will seek friendship with all regions of the world, but we do so with an understanding that all regions reserve the right to put their own interests first. Any diplomatic relation has to be based on mutual respect
No matter what the size or the influence of the region is. We are happier in maitaining relationships with small or medium sized regions who respect us rather than giants who consider us below themselves. Yet, if the big regions treat us with respect, we promise to be their loyal allies.

Interviewer: I see. Well, what is your plan to completely iron out the differences between all those who bicker within the region, so that the whole region can work towards the vision of making India, a Nation-states Superpower?

Hindu Puri: I believe that everybody has a right to put forward their opinions and grievances.
If elected, my government shall be open to all sorts of criticism from all member nations.
That's why making the Parliament roboust is my number 1 priority. If we provide a platform to all nations to air their differences, I am sure animosities will decrease. All sorts of differences about government policies can be said freely on the Parliament forum. However, any civilized society is based on the principle of a social contract.
I have no problems if somebody says Hindu Puri has been a failure on the XYZ issue. But if somebody brings in my religion, caste, state, nationality or gender into it, there is a problem. To maintain a reasonable amount of decency in the region, we need to censor opinions on RMB which are downright fascist, communal, jihadi or anti national in nature. Members are free to say whatever they want in personal messages. But on Regional forums such as RMB, they will have to abide by certain regulations to mainain social cohesion. There would, however, be no clamp down on freedom of expression to a large extent. The Opposition would be given chance to question the Government in regular Parliamentary sessions which shall be held every two weeks.

Interviewer: Wonderful to hear. Next Question, what would be the first thing that your Government would do, if you were elected?

Hindu Puri: I ll first call on the Opposition candidate and offer to work with her or him on matters that concern the region :)
Together, we shall build back better :) It shall be followed by filling up posts which the WAD can make appointments to. We shall soon after come up with a draft for the Parliamentary session which shall be held within two weeks of assuming power if elected.

Interviewer: Ah. Well, I have a few extra questions. What are your comments on the deletion of fascist regions like Genua and Nazi Europa?

Hindu Puri: As External Affairs Minister, it has been in the pain in the ass to deal with allegations that we support fascism. We are strongly against fascism and we don't support them at all. Good riddance. However, I am a proud Hindu. And anybody who confuses fascism with Hindutva or Hinduism is wrong. I added this because there was alot of controversy about my support for the Hindutva ideology.

Interviewer: Ah, could you explain the difference between Fascism and Hindutva for those who say that both ideologies are the same?

Hindu Puri: Hindutva is an Indian way of life. Its living a life based on Sanatan Dharma principles. It is also about protecting the rights of Hindus in real life areas like Kashmir and Bengal where there have been instances of oppression against Hindus. It is about countering the Left wing agenda on the internet which defames Hindus and our rituals at times. They would be like "Why do you fast on Navratri" and then wish Ramzan Mubarak to minorities. Hindutva does not mean Anti Muslim. As I said, India is a place for everybody. Fascism, on the other hand, Is a foreign concept. Fascism is based on suppression of opposition. Here I am talking about empowering Opposition. How am I fascist then? I can challenge anybody to point out a single instance of anti Muslim policies by my Govt in my tenure as WAD.

Interviewer: Alright, what are your comments on the recent incident in the region South India?

Hindu Puri: South India being raided was very unfortunate. I am happy that our leaders defended the region well. I have always said in the past too. South India needs to be merged into India for better security. Together we can do wonders.

Interviewer: I see. Well, what will be the Government of India's approach to South India, that is, if you were elected as the WAD?

Hindu Puri: We shall offer them a merger again. However, we won't force them. I would have to talk to the incoming EAM on this.

Interviewer: Alright. I would like to end the Interview with one final question, what are your plans to improve India's Armed Forces?

Hindu Puri: We shall motivate more members to join it. We shall stitch up alliance with other regions so they can help us if we need a big Defence contingent. We shall also honour those who work in our Armed Forces with medals and recognition. We shall also appoint one of the best performing Army personnel as the Chief of Defence Staff. Any further help required by Ministry of Defence from the WAD shall be looked into on a priority basis.That's all I guess. Any more questions?

Interviewer: None, well thank you for attending the interview, it was my pleasure to interview a esteemed and reputable person like you. Jai Hind! Jai Bharat!

Hindu Puri: Jai Hind Shri Madhyarashtra ji. It was a pleasure talking to you. I wish you all success in the days to come. Jai Bharat Jai Shri Ram.

Interviewer: Thank you.

Interesting, we never heard of Marine One before now. So does the President take his own personal helicopter wherever he goes? What are the conditions where he would take the helicopter with him?

We hope you are feeling better today, Verner!

Love Conquers All Day

Love Conquers All Day is celebrated on June 3 every year as a day to cherish our loved ones. No matter how tough life gets, the sailing becomes smoother with our loved ones at our side. It is a day to express gratitude and love to those who matter and recognize love as an emotion that makes the world go around. A day of joy and warmth, you can celebrate it with your friends, family, partners, pets, or anyone whom you love and cherish!

HISTORY OF LOVE CONQUERS ALL DAY
Love is an emotion that is probably as old as humans themselves. It is described as a sublime feeling that positively affects our mental and emotional well-being. The Greek philosophers identified six different forms of love: familial love, friendly love, romantic love, self-love, guest love, and divine love. Today, love also exists as unrequited love, empty love, companionate love, consummate love, infatuated love, self-love, and courtly love. Every culture has its own unique definitions of love and some also celebrate love as a part of religion and spirituality. It is also a common subject of art, literature, poetry, movies, and music.

The famous expression, ‘love conquers all,’ is credited to the Roman poet Virgil. These lines are found in Virgil’s “Eclogues” and were originally written in Latin. When translated to English, “Amor vincit omnia, et nos cedamus amori” means “Love conquers all things, so we too shall yield to love.” The expression suggests that there is no force in the world that cannot be overcome by love.

The phrase also finds a mention in religious scriptures like the Bible. It preaches that God loves everyone and those who are kind will be rewarded with love and joy. The Bible says that vices like hatred, manipulation, and deception are not fought with weapons, but love. Although the phrase “love conquers all” does not exist in the Bible, many verses preach a similar sentiment.

Your Buddy Verner

POTUS often uses a helicopter for shorter flights, and I'm sure you've seen photos/videos of it in use.

In this case, it was explained to us that the chopper was present as a backup or in case they needed to make a quick getaway and for some reason couldn't use Air Force One.

Even without dignitaries aboard, there was plenty of security around the aircraft. Even when they just brought it out of the hangar on Tue to fire up the engines they had armed guards. There was even more visible security yesterday when they loaded the chopper for transport.

Verner, I'll have to watch the documentary when I get home this weekend.

Fort Verden, thank you for the not one, but two videos yesterday on Marine One! That was very interesting. Loved the irony of Lockheed, after losing the contract to build them, bought the company that did get the contract. Also, it would have been fun to be a fly on the wall during the back and forth between the Army and the Marines over who was going to be in charge of Marine One. We cannot believe those can be broken down in an hour and shoved into a cargo plane. They look pretty big, but so does the cargo plane. Can the cargo plane hold just one or can they fit two of them in there?

Trecdom2 wrote:Interesting fact for the day. Once broken down for transport, it takes approximately an hour to load Marine One and related cargo onto a C17

I've watched them do that. Talk about having it down to a science.

NewTexas wrote:Interesting, we never heard of Marine One before now. So does the President take his own personal helicopter wherever he goes? What are the conditions where he would take the helicopter with him?

Never heard of Marine One? Trecdom2 pretty much nailed its uses.

Audacity To Hope Day

Audacity To Hope Day is celebrated every year on June 4. On this day, we celebrate the resilient human spirit that conquers all obstacles with hope and perseverance. It is also a day to celebrate movements and important landmarks in human history that have made the world a better place for us all. This is also a great day to celebrate personal victories that you have achieved after overcoming challenging obstacles. A celebration of optimism and hope, Audacity To Hope Day anticipates a happy future for every single person!

HISTORY OF AUDACITY TO HOPE DAY
Hope is an optimistic state of mind that expects a positive outcome no matter how dire the circumstances. It is a singular force that motivates us to do better and strive to be our best selves. This positive emotion also anticipates a happier future that is full of opportunities and brings about an easier way of life. The word features frequently in many languages across the world to indicate optimism and positive actions. Common phrases like “hoping against hope”, “hope springs eternal”, and “hope for the best” are some of the most common phrases in the English language featuring the word ‘hope’.

The day is also dedicated to President Barack Obama who has written the book, “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.” Published in 2006 when Obama was a senator, the book talks about Obama and his own audacity to hope that led him to become America’s first Black president! His inspiration for the phrase “the audacity of hope” came from a sermon by pastor Jeremiah Wright, in which he said, “…to take the one string you have left and to have the audacity to hope.” Even though the book largely focuses on Obama’s political career, we learn about his thoughts on understanding an opponent’s point of view and building mutual respect. Ultimately, it is a book about defying the odds to bring about a significant change in the world around us. And this is exactly what this day is about — to never give up, even in the face of the direst circumstances.

National SAFE Day

National SAFE Day on June 4 is a reminder to keep our loved ones safe and sound at all times. One in three households in America owns a firearm. The question that arises here is how many of these households make sure that their firearms are stashed away safely and out of reach of children. Sadly, the resulting child injuries and deaths owing to unsafe firearm placement show that many of these households do not take firearm safety into serious consideration. Every year, on June 4, a safety campaign is held not only to raise awareness about firearm safety but also to remember the many children who met fatal ends due to unsafe firearm storage.

HISTORY OF NATIONAL SAFE DAY
The National SAFE Day was first honored in 2016 by the Brooklynn Mae Mohler Foundation (BMMF). The foundation was established after the death of Brooklynn Mae Mohler. Brooklynn was visiting her best friend at her residence when the latter found a gun kept in a kitchen cabinet. Brooklynn’s best friend, unaware of the firearm’s safety being unlocked, played with the gun and accidentally fatally shot Brooklynn. To honor Brooklynn and children like her, National SAFE Day was started by Brooklynn’s parents, Darchel and Jacob. It is also a reminder to keep our children safe from any future accidents.

To prevent accidental shootings, always make sure that you have stored your firearms out of reach of children. A firearm should always be unloaded when not in use. Always use a gun locking device to make the firearm inoperable when it is not in use or is stored. These safety tips are in line with what the acronym, SAFE, stands for:

Secure all firearms in the home.
Ask the question about unsecured firearms in the homes your child visits.
Frequently talk to your children about the dangers of firearms.
Educate and Empower others to be SAFE.

NATIONAL SAFE DAY TIMELINE
2014
Increase in Childrens’ Deaths Due to Firearms

The declining trend of the previous years is reversed with an increase in children and teen deaths due to firearms.

2016
BMMF Holds the First SAFE Day

BMMF, in honor of Brooklynn, holds the first National SAFE Day to raise awareness about firearm safety to prevent further child deaths.

2017
Five Children Injured for Every Child Killed

For every child death due to firearms, five children are injured non-fatally.

2018
The Second Leading Cause for Childrens’ Deaths

In a 2018 study, it is revealed that, after car crashes, firearms are the second leading cause of children’s deaths.

NATIONAL SAFE DAY FAQS
What is the golden rule of gun safety?

According to the Washington Gun Law website, you should “Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction. Always keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. Always keep the gun unloaded until you are ready to use it. Never point the gun at anything you don’t intend to destroy.”

Can a gun fire without pulling the trigger?
There is always a possibility that the gun can fire at any time, even if you haven’t touched the trigger. So always make sure to only turn the safety ‘off’ if you are ready to fire.

What are the main causes of firearm accidents?
Firearm accidents are caused mainly by the lack of gun maintenance, lack of training, or lack of firearm safety awareness.

HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL SAFE DAY
Store your firearms safely

Always safely store your firearms. Firearms should be unloaded, have safety locks in places, and, most importantly, should be kept out of reach of children at all times.

Enquire about firearm safety in other households
If your child is going over to a friend’s house, call ahead and ask the parents/guardians about firearms and how they have stored them. If their safety measures meet the standards, only then should you allow your child to go. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Follow SAFE
Learn about SAFE, and follow the instructions to the T. Safely store your firearms, ask questions about firearm safety in the households of your child’s friends, and educate family and friends about firearm safety.

5 FACTS ABOUT GUN VIOLENCE THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND
Global homicides due to gun violence

Eight children die every day from firearms
Each day, eight children die while another 32 are injured because of being shot by a firearm.

Firearm death cases higher than drowning

WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL SAFE DAY
It’s a reminder of safety

The foremost agenda of National SAFE Day is to continuously reiterate the importance of firearm safety. Safety measures must be adhered to at all times in order to lead a happy life.

It’s a reminder of our loved ones’ safety
Our loved ones, especially the children in our lives, are our precious gems that deserve to be protected from all dangers. This is why it is very important to follow all of the SAFE protocols to keep our children safe from firearm-related accidents.

It’s a reminder of life
Life is an invaluable gift. It brings many joys and experiences, and it is for these very reasons that we must do everything to protect it at all costs. Practice and preach safety.

National Hug Your Cat Day

Ancient Egyptians worshipped, revered, and spoiled their cats (sound familiar?). They were seen as symbols of grace and poise — traits cats are still associated with today. There’s a lot of cat hugging going on all the time, but make an extra special attempt during National Hug Your Cat Day on June 4. The best way to celebrate? Scoop your regal cat right off the ground and snuggle the heck out of it until it feels the love. Sounds like a pleasant activity we can all get behind, no? So grab your kitty BFF and celebrate with us!

NATIONAL HUG YOUR CAT DAY TIMELINE
7500 B.C.
The First Domestic Cats

In the Near East, cats are first domesticated.

500 B.C.
Cats Revered by the Song Dynasty

The first cat is given to the emperor of China and quickly becomes a popular pet among the rich.

1963
Félicette the Astrocat

On October 18, Félicette becomes the first cat to go to space.

2015
Cats Go Viral

The number of cat videos on YouTube tops 2 million — higher than any other category of YouTube content.

NATIONAL HUG YOUR CAT DAY ACTIVITIES
Hug away

Yes, this is obvious, but we'd be remiss if we didn't recommend it. Get your lint roller ready, and go in. (Then, count the number of seconds until your cat tries to wriggle out of your grip.)

Volunteer at a shelter
Not everyone has a kitty of their own to hug. If you fall in this category, satisfy your hugging desires by volunteering at an animal shelter! You'll be helping cats without homes, while getting in some quality snuggle time.

Host a kitty party
Human parties are good, we guess. But cat parties are even better. So grab your friends who own cats and bring them all together for a giant kitty rager! Just make sure you have enough catnip to go around — no one likes a party foul.

WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL HUG YOUR CAT DAY
Kitties deserve the best

While friends come and go, cats will always be there, demonstrating unconditional love and affection (though they often try to hide it). Hug Your Cat Day reminds us all to give our kitties a little TLC to thank them for their friendship and loyalty. So give your kitty some snuggles — if they don't like being touched, a new scratching post will do just fine.

Friends forever
Did your coworker just invite you to a happy hour you really don't want to attend? Trying to get out of an awkward Tinder date? Not a big deal. Stay home, put your feet up and hang with your very best friend in the world.

Picture day
We know you've showed off countless pictures of your feline friend. Friends may have even asked you to slow down; if they haven't, they're very polite, and you should hold them close. But today's practically a mandate to show the world another picture of your baby. Whether you post it on Instagram or email it to your mom, go wild.

Your Buddy Verner

Some thoughts and reality on "National Safe Day."

Fort Verden wrote:Secure all firearms in the home.

-and-

Fort Verden wrote:Store your firearms safely[/b]
Always safely store your firearms. Firearms should be unloaded, have safety locks in places, and, most importantly, should be kept out of reach of children at all times.

A secured firearm is also secured from the owner should the need for it arise. How about the growing number of teens and preteens who succesfully used firearms to defend their homes and loved ones?

Fort Verden wrote:Ask the question about unsecured firearms in the homes your child visits.

-and-

Fort Verden wrote:Enquire about firearm safety in other households
If your child is going over to a friend’s house, call ahead and ask the parents/guardians about firearms and how they have stored them. If their safety measures meet the standards, only then should you allow your child to go. It is better to be safe than sorry.

In this day and age it is not wise to discuss one's home defense with some Karen who might later decide to rat you out to others asking the same question. The correct answer is to explain that the presence or absence of any home defense measures is not for casual discussion. Then tell them it would be best if their kids didn't come around anymore.

Fort Verden wrote:Frequently talk to your children about the dangers of firearms.
Educate and Empower others to be SAFE.

That is the only part of this noise that is more or less accurate. Children should be given hands on firearm instruction from a very young age. That education should be regularly reinforced.

Lets see now... What else...

Fort Verden wrote:Five Children Injured for Every Child Killed
For every child death due to firearms, five children are injured non-fatally.

Can you say gang violence. Chicago?

Fort Verden wrote:The Second Leading Cause for Childrens’ Deaths
In a 2018 study, it is revealed that, after car crashes, firearms are the second leading cause of children’s deaths.

What study? However, even if they do manage to pull a study out of their ear, once again: Gangs, Chicago, Detroit...

Fort Verden wrote:What is the golden rule of gun safety?
According to the Washington Gun Law website, you should “Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction. Always keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. Always keep the gun unloaded until you are ready to use it. Never point the gun at anything you don’t intend to destroy.”

A glimmer of truth shines through a side of fertilizer. An unloaded gun is useless. Unless you can convince your home invaders to wait while you load up a magazine and slap it in the gun.

There is always a possibility that the gun can fire at any time, even if you haven’t touched the trigger. So always make sure to only turn the safety ‘off’ if you are ready to fire.

Bull5#!+! A well maintained firearm will not fire unless the trigger is pulled. Who writes this garbage?

Go out and buy another gun. Then teach your child the proper care, feeding and use of that weapon.

I don't know how long it takes to break down the chopper for transport. The hour was from when they started moving it from the hanger, it was already prepared for transport.

Wiki says the chopper is almost 55 ft long. Not sure the size with the tail folded up but there's not enough room in a C17 to fit 2, especially with all the other cargo.

Could probably fit 2 in a C5 as it has a larger cargo space

While in the Tulsa I saw 2 relatives of Big Tex. A giant oil driller, and a smaller Space Cowboy modeled after the classic 'Muffler Men'

I'll post photos of those and Marine 1, tomorrow evening once I get home.
