International Polar Bear Day
February 27, 2015 in the World

International Polar Bear Day is a holiday celebrated every February 27 to raise awareness about the conservation status of the polar bear. International Polar Bear Day is organized by Polar Bears International to raise awareness about the impact of global warming and reduced sea ice on polar bear populations. The holiday encourages people to find ways to reduce their carbon output.

The polar bear is classified as a vulnerable species, with eight of the nineteen polar bear subpopulations in decline. For decades, large scale hunting raised international concern for the future of the species but populations rebounded after controls and quotas began to take effect.

According to the World Wildlife Fund, the polar bear is important as an indicator of arctic ecosystem health. Polar bears are studied to gain understanding of what is happening throughout the Arctic, because at-risk polar bears are often a sign of something wrong with the arctic marine ecosystem.

No Brainer Day
February 27, 2015 in the World

No Brainer Day is celebrated on February 27, 2015. It’s easy to celebrate it: just be happy about its existance! No-brainer is a term used to denote a problem that allegedly has a very easy solution obvious to all. The term originated in engineering jargon, but grew in popularity during the 1990s and 2000s, and is now common in business environments. The claim that a problem is a “no-brainer” may be a way to shut down dissent.

No Brainer Day is observed with the purpose to free your brain from tired and complex assignments. This is a break day for easy to solve and simple problems. Though it’s not allowed to be lazy for working, a small amount of time spent on idling is very beneficial for health as well as working status.

On No Brainer Day, you are allowed to postpone things in a positive way. Thanks to this, you are able to have more time to think things thoroughly and clearly. Sometimes, fast decisions can lead to bad consequences that make us regret. Unlike other events, there is neither party nor festival on No Brainer Day. With the aim of relaxing, this event encourages you to go to bed early and enjoy a healthy night with enough sleep. It will help you improve your memory, refresh your brain. You have rights to treat yourself well in this event.

National Kahlua Day
February 27, 2015 in the USA

Kahlua is a rich, creamy alcoholic liqueur from Mexico. People enjoy it straight up, on the rocks, and mixed in coffee or cocktails (like the White Russian). Kahlua is also used to flavor desserts such as ice cream, cakes, and cheesecakes.

The word “kahlua” means “house of the Acolhua people” in the Nahuatl language. A company named Domecq has produced the drink since 1936 and named it for the native people of Veracruz. Kahlua is made with rum, Mexican coffee, sugar, and vanilla.

To celebrate National Kahlua Day, mix up your favorite Kahlua cocktail or bake a divine Kahlua-flavored cake to share with friends!
