Happy Thursday everyone! We are almost through the week! I’m doing my darnedest not to cough like a barking sea lion (it hurts my head when I do!), or sound like I’ve swallowed gravel. I’m heading off to work, but I’m not making any promises about how long I will be there. I don’t really want to expose anyone to this, but there are a few things I need to do either today or tomorrow and as long as I’m upright I’m going to try doing them today. Determination! That’s what this is going to take!
Get a Different Name Day – Have you ever heard someone’s name and thought to yourself – ooooh what were their parents THINKING? Yeah, I have too. Quite often actually. Well, this day is for people who are not thrilled with the name they were given at birth. Most people are given a first, middle and last name at birth. Not everyone gets a middle name, but most do. That name wasn’t one that we chose for ourselves, but our parents saddled us with it. Now, most people will go through life just fine with their given name, but there are some who just hate their name and change in when they are old enough to make that legal decision for themselves. Funny thing though, sometimes people change their names for very strange names. I have to wonder WHY?
World Radio Day – Did you know that radio is the oldest method of mass communication? Many people and organizations were involved with the invention of the radio, but the main one that gets credit would be Guglielmo Marconi. He was the first person who successfully applied the theories of wireless technology. He sent out the first radio signal in 1895, and it consisted of the single letter “S”. That landed him a grant for the world’s first patent for the radio. Over time it was proven that many of the theories used in the making of a radio were actually first patented by Nikola Tesla. Radio’s work by transmitting and receiving electromagnetic waves. The importance of radio cannot be stressed enough, as it is the mass media reaching the widest audience in the world. It is also recognized as a powerful and low cost communication tool. It is very well suited to remote communities and vulnerable people like the disabled, youth and the poor. There is also the strong role in emergency communication and disaster relief!
