Superman Day – July 3

Leave a comment

Superman Day – July 3, 1940
In April of 1939 the New York World’s Fair, “Building The World of Tomorrow,” opened on what was once a marshy wasteland in Flushing Meadows, just east of the great metropolis. From its inception to its closing ceremonies, the Fair promoted one of the last great metanarratives of the Machine Age: the unqualified belief in science and technology as a means to economic prosperity and personal freedom. Wedged between the greatest economic disaster in America and the growing international tension that would result in World War II, The World of Tomorrow was a much-needed antidote to the depression and confusion of the times. It provided the one saving grace which all of America needed – it provided hope.
To go along with the theme of “The World of Tomorrow“, DC Comics hosted Superman Day at the fair, featuring the first public appearance of “The Man of Tomorrow“, Superman (Ray Middleton) in full costume and a live Superman radio broadcast from the fairgrounds. In this very first Superman costume, the name “SUPERMAN” is inscribed in the top part of Superman’s chest emblem and Superman’s boots are the original lace style. Superman Day was the brainchild of publicist Allen ‘Duke’ Ducovny, held in part to promote the sales of DC’s New York World’s Fair Comics, a 100-page special edition sold exclusively at the World’s Fair.

Friday, the 3rd of July, 2015 is the 184th day in 2015 and in the 27th calendar week.
General Events:
International Plastic Bag Free Day
July 3, 2015 in the World
Most of us use them every day, the thin plastic bags used by almost every retailer we visit. Whether we’re shopping for groceries or the newest Prada, you can almost guarantee that you’ll be leaving the store with a plastic bag stuffed full of your new goodies. Then, when you arrive home, you’ll quickly remove them like a kid opening Christmas presents, tossing aside the wrapping with thoughtless abandon. Have you ever stopped to consider what happens to those plastic bags? Has it ever occurred to you just how many of them we go through, individually, in a year?
International Plastic Bag Free Day is dedicated to heightening awareness about these and very real and pressing issues brought about by this most popular of disposable carrying devices. We are reminded that those bags we pick up from the retailers are used for an incredibly short time, usually under 25 minutes, and are then disposed of. They may pass out of our thinking then, but they do not pass out of our world. Plastic bags remain in the world for anywhere from 100-500 years before finally decaying completely, and have a profound impact upon our environment as a result.
Out in the great reaches of the ocean are massive reefs made up of all sorts of plastic waste, and plastic bags play heavily among them. Such is the magnitude of the problem that these great floating islands reach hundreds of miles, like great monuments to mankind’s wastefulness, and disregard for the world upon which we live. International Plastic Bag Free Day gives us an opportunity to remind ourselves, and others, that every action we take, and every bag we dispose of, effects the lives of everyone in the world for generations to come.

Stay out of the Sun Day
July 3, 2015 in the World
Stay out of the Sun Day is celebrated on July 03, 2015. The day remembers you to protect yourself from the damaging rays of the sun by staying in the shade. Moderate exposure to the sun contributes to the production of vitamin D by the body, but excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays has detrimental health effects, including sunburn and increased risk of skin cancer, as well as depressed immune system function and accelerated aging of the skin.
There are different ways to protect against the sun. Sunscreen is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects some of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Umbrellas or sunshades are designed to protect against sunlight by offering shadow. To go out of the sunlight is a very effective way to protect yourself from sunlight. You can do this by going into the shadows or by spending the time inside buildings.
