Tuesday, the 10th of March, 2015 is the 69th day in 2015 and in the 11th calendar week.
General Events:
Tibetan Uprising Day
March 10, 2015 in Tibet
Tibetan Uprising Day commemorates the 1959 Tibetan uprising against the presence of the People’s Republic of China in Tibet. The failure of the armed rebellion ultimately resulted in a violent crackdown on Tibetan independence movements, and the flight of the Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso into exile. Tibetan Uprising Day is observed primarily by organizations and individuals who support Tibetan independence, such as Students for a Free Tibet, and is often accompanied by the release of a statement by the Dalai Lama. Tibetan independence groups often organize protests or campaigns on March 10th to draw attention to the situation in Tibet.

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
March 10, 2015 in the USA
Of the more than 1.2 million people living with HIV in the U.S. today, one in four is a woman. Women of color have been especially hard hit, accounting for the majority of new infections occurring among women in the U.S. There has been some good news when it comes to women and HIV in the U.S. with a reported significant 21% decrease in new infections among American women in recent years.
National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is coordinated by the Office on Women’s Health (OWH), within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, alongside many organizations that play a critical role in the observance in communities across the nation.

International Day of Awesomeness
March 10, 2015 in the World
This day gives us the opportunity to celebrate every person, place, thing, or idea in the world that is awesome. As the official tag line points out, “No one’s perfect, but everyone can be awesome.”
A man named Kevin Lawver declared the need for an International Day of Awesomeness in 2007. He was working with an intern named Freddie Maneiro who suggested that the office should celebrate Lawver’s awesomeness. Lawver replied that there should be an International Day of Awesomeness. He posted the idea to Twitter and the rest is history.  It started as a national day, but eventually the holiday went global.
To celebrate the occasion, be sure to tell all your friends how awesome they are and be awesome yourself. Do not take the holiday too seriously and have a lot of fun, that’s what it’s all about.

National Blueberry Popover Day
March 10, 2015 in the USA
A popover is described as; puffy pastries, roughly the size of muffins, that have moist interiors — whether hollow or stuffed, with crispier, lightly browned exteriors.  Can’t you already taste a blueberry filled, light and fluffy, fresh out of the oven, popover?
“A popover is a light, hollow roll made from an egg batter similar to that of Yorkshire pudding, typically baked in muffin tins.Popovers may be served either as a sweet, topped with fruit and whipped cream for breakfast or with afternoon tea, or with meats at lunch and dinner.”  (Wikipedia) The name “popover” comes from the fact that the batter swells or “pops” over the top of the muffin tin while baking.** 1850 – The oldest known reference to popovers in a letter of E.E. Stuart.**  1876 – The first cookbook with a popover recipe was Practical Cooking by M.N. Henderson.
