World UFO Day 2014
July 2, 2014 in the World
World UFO Day is celebrated on July 02, 2014. World UFO Day is an awareness day for people to gather together and watch the skies for unidentified flying objects. In the past there were two days that were called World UFO day. July 2nd and the 24th of June. The WUFODO (World UFO Day Organization) declared July 2nd to be the official World UFO day. This was done to eliminate any confusion. Also, the original first World UFO Day was celebrated on July 2 in 2001.
June 24 is the date that aviator Kenneth Arnold reported what is generally considered to be unidentified flying object sighting in the United States, while July 2 commemorates the supposed UFO crash in the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident. The goal of the July 2 celebration is to raise awareness of the Roswell findings, and to gain support in forcing governments to “tell the truth about earthly visits from outer space aliens”.
An unidentified flying object, or UFO, in its most general definition, is any apparent anomaly in the sky that is not readily identifiable as any known object or phenomenon by visual observation and/or use of associated instrumentation such as radar. These anomalies were referred to popularly as “flying saucers” or “flying discs” during the late 1940s and early 1950s.
The possibility of life beyond our planet is thrilling to imagine, so it’s no surprise that aliens have become a common subject in our modern-day books and films. To celebrate World UFO Day, invite friends and family over to watch a science fiction movie!  If science fiction movies aren’t your thing, dream up some intergalactic crafts or baking projects to make today, like a UFO-shaped cake. Happy World UFO Day!

I Forgot Day 2014
July 2, 2014 in the World
I Forgot Day is observed on July 02, 2014. It is not just a day for events that you have already forgotten, the day is also helpful to remind you of those events that you might forget in the future. There are many events that can be easily forgotten, such as birthdays or anniversaries. I Forgot Day was created by Gaye Anderson.
Forgetting refers to apparent loss of information already stored in an individual’s long term memory. It is a spontaneous or gradual process in which old memories are unable to be recalled from memory storage. Problems with remembering, learning and retaining new information are a few of the most common complaints of older adults.
Failing to retrieve an event does not mean that this specific event has been forever forgotten. This could just mean the information was not encoded well. Research has shown that there are a few health behaviors that to some extent can prevent forgetting from happening so often. One of the simplest ways to keep the brain healthy and prevent forgetting is to stay active and exercise.
