Popeye the sailor man Day - January 17

If you were a child in the 1970s, you probably know Popeye and your mother probably forced you to eat spinach because of it.
Popeye is a comic book character first published on January 17, 1929, by creator Elsie Seeger.
Popeye is a sailor who fights his enemy Bluto to save his beloved Olive. When he gets into trouble he opens a can of spinach, eats the software and gets tremendous strength to fight it.
In the 1960s, Popeye received his own television series. She had a catchy and annoying song called "I'm Popeye the Sailor Man" that all the kids knew and loved to sing.

Popeye began his career as a minor and secondary character in the Thimble Theater cigar comic. His character gained popularity and the place she got in it grew until the name of the comic was changed to Popeye The Sailor man.

Elsie Sigar, the creator of Popeye, grew up in the town of Chester in Missouri, USA. The town's residents claim that the characters in the comics were inspired by the town's residents. Today the town has a Popeye Museum and a collection of spinach cans.
The figure of Olive Oil, Popeye's lover, is based, according to Chester residents, on the figure of Dora Pascal, a particularly thin and tall woman who would wear a headscarf around her neck. She had a shop she would rarely go out of.
Popeye's character is said to have been inspired by a man named Frank "Rocky" Fiegel, who had one eye, smoked a pipe and liked to get into fights in which he usually won.
Cigar died at the age of 44, in 1938. He contributed much to the reputation of the spinach but it turns out that the much appreciated spinach was a little too much than he deserved. The reference to spinach as a fortifying food came following the publication of a study in which there was an error in printing the decimal point in the amount of iron it contains, so that it was attributed 10 times higher than the actual amount. Although the mistake was discovered, the spinach's respectable place has been preserved and to this day it is attributed to the properties of a super-super vegetable.

World Television Day- 21th November

The first World Television Day followed the establishment of the special forum was declared by the UN for television by the in the mid-90s. Forum gathered together leading figures in the media industry to analyze the increasing influence of television on decision-making and public opinion regarding issues of peace and security around the world.

The history of the World Television Day
In December 1996 the United Nations General Assembly declared on November 21 as the World Television day. This decision was taken in order to acknowledge the growing influence that television the decision and bring the world's attention to the impact of the various threads of conflicts and threats to peace and security matters of world public opinion, as well as other important issues, like the economy and society.

World Television Day should not be a celebration of the electronic instrument itself, but of the philosophy he represents- philosophy of openness and transparency of the world's problems. Television has long been considered as representing the media and globalization in the contemporary world. However, not all government representatives who attended the first forum, saw it quite like that. Delegation from Germany said: "Television is only one means of information and an information medium to which a considerable majority of the world population has no access... That vast majority could easily look at World Television Day as a rich man's day. They do not have access to television. There are more important information media and here I would mention radio in particular. We think it is more important to enhance the role of those media than that of television."

How to celebrate the World Television Day
Obviously, the most obvious way to celebrate the World Television Day is by watching television. but what? TV content are no longer reliable data transfer lofty matters only. TV is full with vulgar reality shows, programs that distort reality instead of moving it to us as it is and give globalization a dimension of transparency and openness. TV shows nowadays offer very little cultural value and informative. 

World Television Day is the day to watch and relive some of the greatest moments in television helped bring the reality of the world at people's homes, change their lives and their world view forever; 

In 1954' the program  "Wonderful World of Color" by Disney was launched, diverse program and family-friendly mix of cartoons, icons, drama and documentation.

The first televised presidential debate was on September 26, 1960, the Republican Vice President Richard Nixon and his opponent, who was relatively unknownfrom, the Massachusetts Senator John F. Kennedy. They did not know how they are changing the face of the presidential election forever. This was the first time Americans have chosen to really see the candidates present their ideas (which worked very well for the handsome young Canadian who won the elections).

The conflict between the two US presidential candidates in the first television broadcast:

There was also the historical moment that, when Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Ed "Buzz" Aldrin landed on the moon on July 20 in 1969. The sentence said by Neil Armstrong's "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" was engraved in the minds of many people, whi felt their lives is about to change and nothing is going to be impossible anymore.
