Titanic Remembrance Day
April 15, 2015 in the World
Titanic Remembrance Day is observed on April 15, 2015. The day commemorates the sinking of the Titanic and and over 1500 people who died. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg.
The sinking of Titanic caused the deaths of 1,502 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. It was the largest ship afloat at the time of her maiden voyage. On her maiden voyage, she carried 2,224 passengers and crew. The disaster was greeted with worldwide shock and outrage at the huge loss of life and the regulatory and operational failures that had led to it.
Public inquiries in Britain and the United States led to major improvements in maritime safety. One of their most important legacies was the establishment in 1914 of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), which still governs maritime safety today. The Titanic has gone down in history as the ship that was called unsinkable. For more than 100 years she has been the inspiration of fiction and non-fiction.

Rubber Eraser Day
April 15, 2015 in the World
Rubber Eraser Day takes place on April 15, 2015. It celebrates the invention of erasers, which allows you to kill your mistakes. On April 15, 1770, Joseph Priestley described a vegetable gum to remove pencil marks: “I have seen a substance excellently adapted to the purpose of wiping from paper the mark of black lead pencil.” He dubbed the substance “rubber”.
Why not just call it “Eraser Day”? There’s two reasons. The first erasers were made of rubber. Today, they are made of rubber, or vinyl.  Secondly, in Great Brittain, they are formally called “rubbers”.
In the world of erasers, there are two men are prominent. Joseph Priestley discovered the eraser in 1770, using pieces of rubber imported from Brazil. Then in 1858, Hyman Lipman of Philadelphia, Pa., patented the pencil with an eraser at the end.
