Biographers' Day - May 16

Biographers' Day is celebrated on May 16 each year, to celebrate the honor of biographers who teach us about famous people and their resumes that inspire us through biographies.

This day was set in honor of the first meeting of the writer Samuel Johnson and his biographer James Boswell on 16 May 1763 in London, at a bookstore near Covent Garden. They became good friends and almost 30 years later Boswell published the story of Johnson's life, in a book that became the most glorious English biography.

Biographies are the writing of a person's life history. The biography can describe a real or fictional person, but usually the reference in the biography is to the resume of a character living or lived in reality. The biographies can be written as a simple text and also as an expression of complex ideas and narratives. The biographies are not only the dry facts about a person's life, but also a description of the feelings and thoughts that accompanied him.

Biographies for children are a great way to teach them the history of mankind and its achievements.

Biographical writing has not always enjoyed popularity. Biographical conventions have evolved considerably over the centuries. The current version of the biography was discovered in the 18th century, and is closely related to the biography written by James Boswell, "The Life of Samuel Johnson." The biography was written in a warm, broad, uncompromising and exhaustively detailed manner, and discovered the new way of writing the biography by James Boswell. It is actually the one who formulated the biography format that has become very popular to this day.

How to celebrate Biography Day?

The best way to celebrate National Biographers Day is to read or write the biography of someone who has influenced your life. Is it a poet, engineer, businessman, writer or politician? You can also update old biographies of people you like on Wikipedia. If you are a biographer yourself, share the biography you have written.

International Social Work Day - the third Thursday in March

 The International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW
The Social Work Day was created by the International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW) and is designed to promote various social issues, strive for social justice, human rights and social development through the promotion of social work, building and using models, best practices and helping to promote international cooperation.
Social work is a profession that deals with social problems and assistance in dealing with them for families, individuals and communities. The purpose of social work is to improve the personal and social functioning of the individual, the family and the community through care, rehabilitation, counseling and guidance.
Social work is based on social values ​​according to which a strong society should help the weak. Social workers represent, mediate and care for people who need help to strengthen them and help them deal with their difficulties.


The methods in which social work operates are clients from various academic fields such as psychology, sociology, public policy and more.
The history of social work
Social work was created in the wake of the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century.
The revolution created a new technological world that required the acquisition of education and new skills to integrate into it. On the one hand, the standard of living has improved thanks to technology, but on the other hand, the cost of living has risen and caused poverty to expand.
Poverty has severely affected society. The extended families who lived together disintegrated into nuclear families (mother, father and children). People moved from the villages to the cities where they suffered from a sense of loneliness and alienation, due to the loss of support of the extended family.
Society became alienated and the traditional family order was violated.
The weak populations were the first to be harmed. Women of the lower working class had to go out to work hard and also take care of the household and take care of their children at the same time. The children had to go out to work to help support the family.
The elderly who were left in villages without their families and communities suffered from loneliness and helplessness.


Other vulnerable populations that lost support were people with mental retardation, mental disorders and the disabled.
This situation has created a necessary need for frameworks that will take care of the weak and help them. The role was initially taken on by the religious frameworks that cared for charity.
Gradually, voluntary organizations were formed that consisted of middle-class women who helped the weaker sections.
By the end of the 19th century it was already clear that small organizations would not suffice and an orderly profession on behalf of the state was needed. In 1898 the first school of social work was established which turned the volunteers into wage workers on behalf of the state.


World Plumbing Day - March 11

World Plumbing Day is an international event that took place on March 11 at the initiative of the World Plumbing Council which celebrates the important role that plumbing plays in the health and safety of modern society.
Following the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti and the tsunami in Japan in 2011 we discovered how easy it is to take for granted the availability of potable water and sanitation systems - until these systems stop functioning properly. History shows that great leaps in the advancement of the human race - both physically and socially - have been linked to advances in piping technology.

The safety and abundance of drinking water is, a concern of most people all over the world, but we do not often notice how important work in the plumbing industry is and how much it contributes every day to remove worry from our hearts and keep us healthy.
So do not take for granted the work of the plumbers - running water in the tap, hot water on demand, and all the complex systems of pipes without which we can not function - everything is the responsibility of the plumbers that it is their day!

special days of the year- World Plumber day

March 11 is also Ken's birthday

Dentists' Day - March 6

Dentists' Day is a day of appreciation for people who care about the health of our mouths and the integrity of our teeth.
We usually do everything we can to not see our dentist, and when it starts to hurt and there is no choice but to make an appointment, we are not excited to see him again, both because of the unpleasant treatment and because of the price.
Dentist Day is today to be nice to dentists and remember that they are just doing their job, so in honor of this day we will smile a wide smile full of white teeth at the dentist, and show him what good kids we are and how we take care of our teeth.

Some interesting and surprising facts about dentists:
Until the 20th century dentistry did not have a separate specialty in medicine and general practitioners also treated dentistry.

Today dentistry is a broad medical-surgical field, with many specializations, dealing not only with the teeth and jaw but with the face, oral cavity and the base of the skull.
To become a dentist you have to study at the university for 6 years.

The first to practice dentistry were the Phoenicians who lived in the Lebanese area before the Bronze Age (3300 BC). The Phoenicians and Greeks were the pioneers in dentistry. Archaeological finds show that they used artificial teeth carved from ivory and attached to the real teeth with gold threads. They believed that what causes toothache are toothworms.
In the Middle Ages the treatment of diseased teeth was done by booksellers, blacksmiths, jewelers, blazers and others. Most of the time, those who were involved in extracting sore teeth were books.

The first electric chair, intended for execution, was invented by Alfred P. Southwick, who was a dentist (Link).
Dentophobia is a fear of dentists. About 10-20 percent of the population suffers from it.

Weatherman's Day - 5 February

We'll see you get along one day without the weather forecast. How will you know what to wear? Where can I go? What to take with you on the trip?
We may not be aware of it, but forecasters have a huge impact on our lives. Thanks to them we know when to go on trips and when not. Farmers know how to care for their crops. It is possible to plan cruises and flights. Know whether to wear long or short clothes and whether to take an umbrella and a coat. Without them it is simply impossible.
It is true that sometimes there are mistakes, but most of the time they are right and we depend on them and the origin of their mouths to get along.

Weatherman's Day was created to honor the meteorological workers and say thank you to them.
Man did not always know how to predict the weather as accurately as he does today.
Ancient cultures would have predicted the weather through signs in nature.
The spiders were the first to herald the coming of winter, as they weave their webs in front of the wind, in anticipation of insects being flown towards them.
The swallows announce that the rain is near and it is time to plant and sow when they fly higher than usual in the sky.
The Luo people in Nyanza County, Kenya, knew the rain was coming a week after the emeralds (roses) bloomed. White flowers marked a very rainy season and orange flowers marked a poor rainy season.
The Abasaba fishermen in Kenya saw swirls over the lake as a sign of rain.
Today there are more reliable ways to gather information about the expected weather. There is a cloud radar, climograph and synoptic map.

February 5 is also Nutella Day and Chocolate Fondue Day

Techies Day - October 3rd

Today is a day of appreciation for all the people who work and engage in advanced technology - high tech, who lead the world to progress and turn it into a global village where everyone can communicate with everyone, no matter how far apart they are, and everyone can know everything about everyone.


This day was founded in 1999 by the website with the support of the CNET network who wanted to express appreciation to all students and workers in the technology and high-tech professions and encourage high school students to choose technology studies.
Things that used to be so hard and slow, like sending messages to each other, or taking pictures, or watching movies and reading books, are now fast and easy thanks to high tech.


High-tech also supports the military, both in terms of weapons and defense and also in terms of intelligence.


There are those who envy high-tech people who have high salaries and good conditions, and seemingly just sit all day in the office and make no effort, but people who work in high tech need to mobilize all their thinking and concentration, and work hard for long hours to achieve results that allow us an easy and comfortable life. More.
To celebrate High Tech Day, you can simply send an email of thanks and appreciation to someone in high tech, reminding him that without people like him, the world would go back, to the days of letters getting lost in the mail, to the paper map days you had to read yourself, to the days of manual camera photos Send for development in the store and takes a few days to develop, for days without internet and more ...
