Leave a comment

November 23 is notable for a number of highly varied events on Earth and its parallels:
-1638 – The Seventh Doctor launched the Nemesis statue into orbit after battling Lady Peinforte with the help of Roundheads in a meadow in Windsor. The Doctor calculated that the statue would pass Earth every twenty-five years before returning in 1988, and set his watch to remind himself. (TV: Silver Nemesis)
-1866 – Clara Oswin Oswald, a “splinter” of companion Clara Oswald, was born, as she would later claim, “inside Big Ben.” (TV: The Snowmen)
-1963 – A new science fiction television series, Doctor…, began broadcasting on the BBC. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks)
-1963 – Jorjie Turner was sent from 2050 to 1963. She was retrieved by K9 Mark 2 and Starkey. They also saved William Pike from being arrested by Barker. These actions resulted in preventing Darius Pike from being erased from history. (TV: The Cambridge Spy)
-1986 – Clara Oswald, later a companion of the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors, was born in Blackpool to Ellie and Dave Oswald. (TV: Death in Heaven, TV: The Rings of Akhaten)
-1988 – The Nemesis statue returned to Earth, crash landing in the spot in Windsor from which it was launched. The Seventh Doctor battled Lady Peinforte, Cybermen, and Neo-Nazis to prevent the statue from falling into the wrong hands. (TV: Silver Nemesis)
-2010 – Sarah Jane Smith, Clyde Langer and Rani Chandra arrived at the Shopkeeper’s shop after the day’s issue of the Ealing Echo had the main story featuring him claiming that an alien was in his shop. He revealed that it was a ploy to get them there and sent them through a time window, each to a different time period, so they could find three special objects. (TV: Lost in Time)
-1863 – Victoria Waterfield’s mother Edith Waterfield died of pneumonia at the age of 37. (Novels: Downtime, The Age of Ambition)
-1945 – James Stevens was born in New Zealand. He was technically born on 22 November G.M.T. time. (Novel: Who Killed Kennedy)
-1948 – Debbie was born. (Novel: Those Left Behind)
-1963 – The Fourth Doctor and K9 Mark II returned to 76 Totter’s Lane to retrieve a Heshrax insect which he had been tracking the day that he left. While there, they met Debbie, Susan’s best friend from Coal Hill School. Debbie, who turned fifteen that day, was concerned about Susan’s sudden disappearance as she knew that Susan would never miss her birthday. She had met the First Doctor on one occasion but the Fourth Doctor did not recall seeing her before. He also did not remember Susan ever mentioning Debbie but admitted that he was not always the best listener. He told Debbie that Susan decided to stay on 22nd century Earth but then amended this by adding that he chose for her, expressing the hope that this decision was for the best. Debbie was thankful that she met the Doctor as, while she knew that she would never see Susan again, she could at least live her life safe in the knowledge that she was safe in the future rather than spend it wondering what happened to Susan and fearing the worst. (Novel: Those Left Behind)
-1963 – A creature called the Shroud entered Earth soon after the assassination of the president and fed off of people’s grief all around the world. The Eleventh Doctor and Clara Oswald stopped the alien before it could take over the planet, and the whole event was written off as a chemical attack. (Novel: Shroud of Sorrow)

 

And another HUGE thank you to Skeen!! xoxo ❤

Day to End Impunity
November 23, 2014 in the World
International Day to End Impunity is celebrated on November 23, 2014. The International Day to End Impunity is marked annually by advocates for free expression. The day is meant to raise awareness of, and demand justice for, artists, journalists, musicians, writers and free expression advocates around the world who are persecuted for exercising their right to free expression. 23 November is the anniversary of the 2009 Ampatuan massacre (also known as the Maguindanao massacre) in the Philippines, when 57 individuals were murdered, including 32 journalists and media workers. The massacre is the single deadliest attack against journalists to have taken place.

Labor Thanksgiving Day
November 23, 2014 in Japan
Labor Thanksgiving Day takes place on November 23, 2014. Labor Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in Japan which takes place annually. The law establishing the holiday cites it as an occasion for commemorating labor and production and giving one another thanks. Events are held throughout Japan, one such being the Nagano Labor Festival. The event encourages thinking about the environment, peace and human rights. It is not unusual for early grade elementary students to create drawings for the holiday and give them as gifts to local kobans, or police stations.

Eat a Cranberry Day
November 23, 2014 in the World
Eat a Cranberry Day takes place on November 23, 2014. The fruit of cranberries is a berry that is larger than the leaves of the plant; it is initially white, but turns a deep red when fully ripe. It is edible, with an acidic taste that can overwhelm its sweetness.
Cranberries are a major commercial crop in certain American states and Canadian provinces. Most cranberries are processed into products such as juice, sauce, jam, and sweetened dried cranberries, with the remainder sold fresh to consumers. Cranberry sauce is regarded as an indispensable part of traditional American and Canadian Thanksgiving menus and some European winter festivals.
Since the early 21st century within the global functional food industry, raw cranberries have been marketed as a “superfruit” due to their nutrient content and antioxidant qualities.

Fibonacci Day
November 23, 2014 in the World
Leonardo of Pisa, sometimes known as Leonardo Fibonacci or just Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician., is responsible for the Fibonacci Sequence (or Fibonacci numbers) – a pattern of counting where each number is the sum of the previous two. It is on November 23 because the first numbers of the Fibonacci Series are 1, 1, 2, 3.
As well as being prevalent in nature, this kind of system is used widely in computer data storage and processing, and Fibonacci Day recognises the importance and value of Fibonacci’s contributions to mathematics.

Cashew Day
November 23, 2014 in the USA
National Cashew Day is observed on November 23, 2014. The cashew is a tree in the family Anacardiaceae which produces a seed that is harvested as the cashew nut. The cashew nut is a popular snack and food source.
Cashews, unlike other oily tree nuts, contain starch to about 10% of their weight. This makes them more effective than other nuts in thickening water-based dishes such as soups, meat stews, and some Indian milk-based desserts. Many southeast Asian and south Asian cuisines use cashews for this unusual characteristic, rather than other nuts.
