    Walt Disney's Birthday

    Happy 110th Birthday, Walt Disney!

    The American film producer, animation innovator and co-founder of Wald Disney Productions would have celebrated his 110th birthday Monday. Best known for his imaginative animation ideas and for his determination to make a creative theme park, Disney was one of the most influential American entertainers in the twentieth century.

    After spending a year as an ambulance driver in France during World War 1, Disney returned to America with the hope of being an artist. He started a career as a newspaper artist, drawing political cartoon, caricatures and comic strips. When he was unsuccessful at selling his cartoons, he worked temporarily at his brother Roy's bank creating advertisement for movie theaters, banks and magazines.

    In 1920, Disney and a fellow cartoonist, Ubbe Iwerks, started their own commercial artists company, but when the pair ran out of money, Disney joined the Kansas City Film Ad Company where he first became interested in animation. He borrowed a camera from the company and experimented with drawings at home.

    Disney briefly presented cartoons as Newman Laugh-O-Grams, but the studio made very little profits. Disney and his brother Roy moved to Hollywood in the early 1920s to set up a cartoon studio for Walt's Alice Comedies, a series of cartoons based on Alice's Wonderland. The Disney Brothers' Studio was born. The series ended in 1927, but Disney had begun a career as an animator with his following series Julius, who resembled Felix the Cat.

    During a train ride between New York and Hollywood in the late 1920s, Disney invented a character to capture his company - Mickey Mouse. Disney himself provided the original voice for the character until 1947. The mouse was originally named Mortimer, but was replaced with Mickey because Disney's wife thought it was more fitting. By 1930, Mickey Mouse had become the world's most popular cartoon.

    Following his success with a number of short series featuring Mickey Mouse, Disney helped usher in the the golden age of animation. Disney oversaw the production of Snow White, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Bambi, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and Wind in the Willows in the late 1930s.

    In the late 1940s, Disney drew sketches for his plan of an amusement park where he thought employees could spend time with their children. Disney spent five years working on plans for Disneyland and the first theme park was opened on July 18, 1955.

    At the opening, Disney dedicated the park, stating:

    To all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past .... and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America ... with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.

    The late 1950s and early 1960s marked an era of expansion for the Disney Company. However, Walt Disney passed away at age 65 from lung cancer on Dec. 15, 1966. Nonetheless, the entrepreneur's dreams for his company and the world of animation have continued long after his death.

    We took a look at 18 of his most inspirational quotes that still resonate with dreamers and movie-lovers today.

    18. We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    17. You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.

    16. All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

    15. Animation can explain whatever the mind of man can conceive. This facility makes it the most versatile and explicit means of communication yet devised for quick mass appreciation.

    14. Disneyland is a work of love. We didn't go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money.

    13. I love Mickey Mouse more than any woman I have ever known.

    12. Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.

    11. I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse.

    10. I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.

    9. I'd say it's been my biggest problem all my life... it's money. It takes a lot of money to make these dreams come true.

    8. It's kind of fun to do the impossible.

    7. Laughter is America's most important export.

    6. Mickey Mouse popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad 20 years ago on a train ride from Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at lowest ebb and disaster seemed right around the corner.

    5. Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.

    4. The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.

    3. There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island.

    2. We are not trying to entertain the critics. I'll take my chances with the public.

    1. You're dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.

    Thanksgiving Day
    Thanksgiving Day

    This week we are celebrating Thanksgiving Day!

    Almost every culture in the world has held celebrations of thanks for a plentiful harvest. The American Thanksgiving holiday began as a feast of thanksgiving in the early days of the American colonies almost four hundred years ago. 

    In 1620, a boat filled with more than one hundred people sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to settle in the New World. This religious group had begun to question the beliefs of the Church of England and they wanted to separate from it. The Pilgrims settled in what is now the state of Massachusetts. Their first winter in the New World was difficult. They had arrived too late to grow many crops, and without fresh food, half the colony died from disease. The following spring the Iroquois Indians taught them how to grow corn (maize), a new food for the colonists. They showed them other crops to grow in the unfamiliar soil and how to hunt and fish. 

    In the autumn of 1621, bountiful crops of corn, barley, beans and pumpkins were harvested. The colonists had much to be thankful for, so a feast was planned. They invited the local Indian chief and90 Indians. The Indians brought deer to roast with the turkeys and other wild game offered by the colonists. The colonists had learned how to cook cranberries and different kinds of corn and squash dishes from the Indians. To this first Thanksgiving, the Indians had even brought popcorn.

    In following years, many of the original colonists celebrated the autumn harvest with a feast of thanks. After the United States became an independent country, Congress recommended one yearly day of thanksgiving for the whole nation to celebrate. George Washington suggested the date November 26 as Thanksgiving Day. Then in 1863, at the end of a long and bloody civil warAbraham Lincoln asked all Americans to set aside the last Thursday in November as a day of thanksgiving.

     The symbols of Thanksgiving

    Turkey, corn (or maize), pumpkins and cranberry sauce are symbols which represent the first Thanksgiving. Now all of these symbols are drawn on holiday decorations and greeting cards.

    The use of corn meant the survival of the colonies. "Indian corn" as a table or door decoration represents the harvest and the fall season.

    Sweet-sour cranberry sauce, or cranberry jelly, was on the first Thanksgiving table and is still served today. The cranberry is a small, sour berry. It grows in bogs, or muddy areas, in Massachusetts and other New England states. The Indians used the fruit to treat infections. They used the juice to dye their rugs and blankets. They taught the colonists how to cook the berries with sweetener and water to make a sauce. The Indians called it "ibimi" which means "bitter berry." When the colonists saw it, they named it "crane-berry" because the flowers of the berry bent the stalk over, and it resembled the long-necked bird called a crane. The berries are still grown in New England. Very few people know, however, that before the berries are put in bags to be sent to the rest of the country, each individual berry must bounce at least four inches high to make sure they are not too ripe!

    Mickey Mouse's Birthday

    This week we are celebrating Mickey Mouse’s Birthday!

    Walt Disney's most famous cartoon creation turned 82 on Thursday. 

    Mickey’s first appearance with sound -- and the first of his films to be distributed -- was in "Steamboat Willie" on Nov. 18, 1928.  He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928. An anthropomorphic mouse who typically wears red shorts, large yellow shoes, and white gloves, Mickey has become one of the most recognizable cartoon characters in the world. 

    Mickey went on to appear in over 130 films, including The Band Concert (1935), Brave Little Tailor (1938), and Fantasia (1940). He appeared primarily in short films, but also occasionally in feature-length films. Ten of Mickey's cartoons were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, one of which, Lend a Paw, won the award in 1942. In 1978, Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

    Beginning in 1930, Mickey has also been featured extensively as a comic strip character. His self-titled newspaper strip, drawn primarily by Floyd Gottfredson, ran for 45 years. Mickey has also appeared in comic books and in television series such as The Mickey Mouse Club (1955–1996) and others. He also appears in other media such as video games as well as merchandising, and is a meetable character at the Disney parks. 

    Mickey generally appears alongside his girlfriend Minnie Mouse, his pet dog Pluto, his friends Donald Duck, and Goofy, and his nemesis Pete, among others (see Mickey Mouse universe). Originally characterized as a mischievous antihero, Mickey's increasing popularity led to his being rebranded as an everyman, usually seen as a flawed, but adventurous hero. In 2009, Disney began to rebrand the character again by putting less emphasis on his pleasant, cheerful side and reintroducing the more mischievous and adventurous sides of his personality, beginning with the video game Epic Mickey. 

    If you can dream it, You can do it.

    Always remember that this whole thing was started

    with a dream and a mouse

    ~ Walt Disney 

    Wish you a very Happy Birthday Dear Mickey Mouse and Thank you for bringing cheers to the life of millions!

    Young Readers Day

    This week we are celebrating Young Readers Day!

    Young Readers Day takes place on November 11, 2014. It is celebrated each year on the second Tuesday in November. Young Readers Day is a chance to celebrate it with your children by reading to them and with them. Why not give them a new book on this day as an intelligent investment in your children future?

    Reading is a complex cognitive process of decoding symbols in order to construct or derive meaning. It is a means of language acquisition, of communication, and of sharing information and ideas. Like all language, it is a complex interaction between the text and the reader which is shaped by the reader's prior knowledge, experiences, attitude, and language community which is culturally and socially situated. 

    The reading process requires continuous practice, development, and refinement. Reading is typically an individual activity, although on occasion a person will read out loud for the benefit of other listeners.

    X-Ray Day

    This week we are celebrating X-Ray Day!

    1895: German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen is working in his laboratory in Würzburg when he accidentally discovers the X-ray.

    Roentgen was conducting experiments with a Crookes tube — basically a glass gas bulb that gives off fluorescent light when a high-voltage current is passed through it — when he noticed that the beam turned a screen 9 feet away a greenish fluorescent color, despite the tube being shielded by heavy black cardboard.

    Roentgen concluded, correctly, that he was dealing with a new kind of ray, one that cast the shadow of a solid object when passed through an opaque covering from its point of origin. Not knowing what kind of ray he was dealing with, exactly, led him to call it an X-ray. The name stuck.

    To test his discovery, Roentgen made an X-ray image of his wife Bertha’s hand, clearly showing the bones of her hand and a pretty hefty wedding ring.

    In the next couple of months, Roentgen published a paper about his discovery: “On a New Kind of Rays.” He made a presentation before the Würzburg Medical Society and X-rayed the hand of a prominent anatomist, who proposed naming the new ray after Roentgen.

    You don’t hear them called Roentgen rays much these days, but the term roentgenology is still current, and the roentgen is a radiological unit of measure.

    X-rays are no longer a mystery, but a major tool of medical diagnosis.

  • 27 октября 2014 Happy Halloween!
    Happy Halloween!
    Happy Halloween!

    This week we are celebrating HALLOWEEN!

     Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.


    Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction during the long, dark winter.

    To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other’s fortunes. When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter.


    The American Halloween tradition of “trick-or-treating” probably dates back to the early All Souls’ Day parades in England. During the festivities, poor citizens would beg for food and families would give them pastries called “soul cakes” in return for their promise to pray for the family’s dead relatives. The distribution of soul cakes was encouraged by the church as a way to replace the ancient practice of leaving food and wine for roaming spirits. The practice, which was referred to as “going a-souling” was eventually taken up by children who would visit the houses in their neighborhood and be given ale, food, and money.


    The tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween has both European and Celtic roots. Hundreds of years ago, winter was an uncertain and frightening time. Food supplies often ran low and, for the many people afraid of the dark, the short days of winter were full of constant worry. On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits. On Halloween, to keep ghosts away from their houses, people would place bowls of food outside their homes to appease the ghosts and prevent them from attempting to enter.


    Bats - Bats are part of the dark, sinister side of Halloween. Bats are purported to suck the blood of victims. Bats can turn into vampires,  and vice versa.

    Black Cat - a symbol of bad luck. Don't let a black cat cross your path, or you will certainly come upon a string of bad luck. Black cats are associated with witches. Some witches are known to be able to transform to a black cat and back.

    Ghosts - They can be good ghosts or bad ghosts. They can be friendly, or terrifying. Ghosts are poor souls who have died and are trapped between this life and the next. The "in between" place is called the netherworld.

    Halloween Costumes - If you are going to a Halloween party or out to Trick or Treat, you need to dress up in a costume.  No costume, no treats. Halloween costumes can be friendly or scary, simple or elaborate. If you don't have money for a costume, be creative and make your own.

    Jack O'Lantern - also spelled Jack O Lantern. A pumpkin  becomes a Jack O'Lantern when it is carved. It's believed the Irish brought the tradition of pumpkin carving to America.

    Lighted Pumpkins - Also lighted turnips and rutabagas. Scary faces are carved into pumpkins and a candle is lit inside. They keep the evil spirits away. Read about carving turnips, the original Celtic tradition

    Pumpkins - We are proud to say that pumpkins are a huge symbol of both Fall and Halloween. They come in many shapes, sizes and colors. They look great painted, decorated, carved, or uncarved.

    Scarecrows - Not everything about Halloween is scary. Scarecrows successfully cross over between fall decorations and Halloween. They are popular in decorating for both events, and are much friendlier for young children.

    Spiders - There's something very creepy about spiders. And, don't bump into a spider web. You just might stick.

    Trick or Treat - Children go out dressed up in their Halloween costumes. They knock on doors, and say "Trick or Treat". If they do not get a treat, look out! Trick or Treat was believed to have started with boy scouts.

    Witches - Did you know witches can be good, and witches can be bad. We definitely distinguish a difference between witches of Halloween and witches of the Wiccan religion. Wiccans are nice witches. They just happen to share the same name with Halloween witches. Halloween witches are definitely evil, and can cast evil spell on people.

  • 20 октября 2014 United Nations Day
    United Nations Day
    United Nations Day

    United Nations Day

    On October 24, 1945, the United Nations (UN) came into force when the five permanent members of the security council ratified the charter that had been drawn up earlier that year. These members were: France, the Republic of China, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States.

    Since 1948, the event's anniversary has been known as United Nations Day. It is an occasion to highlight, celebrate and reflect on the work of the United Nations and its family of specialized agencies.

    What do people do?

    On and around October 24, many activities are organized by all parts of the UN, particularly in the main offices in New York, the Hague (Netherlands), Geneva (Switzerland), Vienna (Austria) and Nairobi (Kenya). These include: concerts; flying the UN flag on important buildings; debates on the relevance of the work of the UN in modern times; and proclamations by state heads and other leaders.

    Public life

    United Nations Day is a global observance and not a public holiday.


    The foundations for a “League of Nations” were laid in the Treaty of Versailles, which was one of the treaties to formally end World War I. The treaty was signed in Versailles, France, on June 28, 1919. The league aimed to encourage disarmament, prevent outbreaks of war, encourage negotiations and diplomatic measures to settle international disputes and to improve the quality of life around the world. However, the outbreak of World War II suggested that the League of Nations needed to take on a different form.

    The ideas around the United Nations were developed in the last years of World War II, particularly during the UN Conference on International Organization in San Francisco, the United States, beginning on April 25, 1945. The UN was officially created when a UN charter was ratified on October 24 that year.

    United Nations Day was first observed on October 24, 1948. The UN recommended that United Nations Day should be a public holiday in member states since 1971. There were also calls for United Nations Day to be an international public holiday to bring attention to the work, role and achievements of the UN and its family of specialized agencies. These have been spectacular, particularly in the fields of human rights, support in areas of famine, eradication of disease, promotion of health and settlement of refugees.

    The UN does not work alone but together with many specialized agencies, including: the World Health Organization (WHO); the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO); the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF); International Labour Organization (ILO); United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR); and United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).


    The UN emblem consists of a projection of the globe centered on the North Pole. It depicts all continents except Antarctica and four concentric circles representing degrees of latitude. The projection is surrounded by images of olive branches, representing peace. The emblem is often blue, although it is printed in white on a blue background on the UN flag.
