General Events:
Racial Harmony Day
July 21, 2015 in Singapore
Racial Harmony Day is observed on July 21, 2015. Racial Harmony Day is celebrated annually in Singapore. The event is to commemorate the 1964 Race Riots, which took place on 21 July 1964. Racial Harmony Day also represents a day for schools to reflect on, and celebrate Singapore’s success as a racially harmonious nation and society built on a rich diversity of culture and heritage. In schools all across the nation on that day, students are encouraged to be dressed in their traditional costumes such as the Cheongsam and the Baju Kurung. Traditional delicacies are also featured in the celebrations. Traditional games such as Kutih-kutih and zero point are played in schools, where inter-class competitions are sometimes organised.

July 21, 2015 in the World
The Scopes Trial, formally known as The State of Tennessee v. John Thomas Scopes and commonly referred to as the Scopes Monkey Trial, was an American legal case in 1925 in which a substitute high school teacher, John Scopes, was accused of violating Tennessee’s Butler Act, which made it unlawful to teach human evolution in any state-funded school.
On the 21st July 1925,Scopes was found guilty and fined $100 (equivalent to $1,345 in 2015), but the verdict was overturned on a technicality.
The trial served its purpose of drawing intense national publicity, as national reporters flocked to Dayton to cover the big-name lawyers who had agreed to represent each side. William Jennings Bryan, three-time presidential candidate, argued for the prosecution, while Clarence Darrow, the famed defense attorney, spoke for Scopes. The trial publicized the Fundamentalist–Modernist Controversy, which set Modernists, who said evolution was not inconsistent with religion, against Fundamentalists, who said the word of God as revealed in the Bible took priority over all human knowledge. The case was thus seen as both a theological contest and a trial on whether modern science regarding the creation–evolution controversy should be taught in schools.

National Junk Food Day
July 21, 2015 in the USA
On July 21, 2015 there is no need for healthy, well balanced food since it is National Junk Food Day. The term junk food describes especially all kinds of food containing high levels of calories from sugar or fat with little protein, vitamins or minerals but also with, for example, too much unhealthy saturated fat.
Despite the bad reputation, junk food is generally safe when integrated into a well balanced diet and consumed in moderation. On National Junk Food Day you have the chance to eat anything you like and to indulge yourself to your guilty pleasures.
