World Smile Day
October 3, 2014 in the World
 
The World Smile Day is celebrated on October 03, 2014. The idea of World Smile Day was coined and initiated by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts. He is known to have created the yellow Smiley Face in 1963. The World’s first World Smile Day was held in the year 1999 and has been held annually since.
 
After Harvey died in 2001, the “Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation” was created to honour his name and memory. The slogan of the Smile Foundation is “improving this world, one smile at a time.” The Foundation continues as the official sponsor of World Smile Day each year.
 
A smiley, or happy face, is a stylized representation of a smiling human face. It is commonly represented as a yellow (many other colors are also used) circle or sphere with two black dots representing eyes and a black half circle representing the mouth. “Smiley” is also sometimes used as a generic term for any emoticon.

Virus Appreciation Day
October 3, 2014 in the World
Virus Appreciation Day is observed on October 03, 2014. It gives you the chance to show respect for viruses. A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms. Viruses can infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to bacteria and archaea.
Viruses are important to the study of molecular and cell biology as they provide simple systems that can be used to manipulate and investigate the functions of cells. The study and use of viruses have provided valuable information about aspects of cell biology. For example, viruses have been useful in the study of genetics and helped our understanding of the basic mechanisms of molecular genetics, such as DNA replication, transcription, RNA processing, translation, protein transport, and immunology.
Viruses spread in many ways; viruses in plants are often transmitted from plant to plant by insects that feed on plant sap, such as aphids; viruses in animals can be carried by blood-sucking insects. Influenza viruses are spread by coughing and sneezing. Norovirus and rotavirus, common causes of viral gastroenteritis, are transmitted by the faecal-oral route and are passed from person to person by contact, entering the body in food or water.

Techies Day 2014
October 3, 2014 in the World
Techies Day is your chance to give your friendly technician(s) some well deserved appreciation.
The office technician may be a geek or a nerd. But, when your PC goes down, or gets a virus, that geek is invaluable. He’s on top of his trade, and can get your system back up and running faster than you can say “gigabyte”.
Not to be left out….. This day is for all technicians, not just computer techies. There are many highly skilled technical jobs out there that demand high quality people oto assess equipment of all kinds. Let’s give a big hand and a thanks to all techies, from all fields, on this special day.
Make sure that your techie knows that he, or she is appreciated. Give them a big “TY”.  Maybe a token gift, or just send an ecard. Taking good care of your Techie will reap you dividends when you need him.
