Had to boogie out early this morning, and by the time I was done, I needed to eat and then took a bit longer than usual nap. So oops entries for the day are now posted. I’m still a bit wiped out from the day’s activities; so I’m going to go veg and watch some #Eureka. SciFI it’s good for you! lol 😀

Leave a comment

Friday, the 2nd of October, 2015 is the 275th day in 2015 and in the 40th calendar week.
General Events:
International Day of Non-Violence
October 2, 2015 in the World
International Day of Non-Violence is observed on October 02, 2015. The International Day of Non-Violence is observed on the birthday of Mohandas Gandhi. This day is referred to in India as Gandhi Jayanti. In 2004, Iranian Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi had taken a proposal for an International Day of Non-Violence from a Hindi teacher in Paris teaching international students to the World Social Forum in Bombay.
The idea gradually attracted the interest of some leaders of India’s Congress Party until a Satyagraha Conference resolution in New Delhi in January 2007 initiated by Sonia Gandhi and Archbishop Desmond Tutu called upon the United Nations to adopt the idea. On 15 June 2007 the United Nations General Assembly voted to establish 2 October as the International Day of Non-Violence.
The resolution by the General Assembly asks all members of the UN system to commemorate 2 October in “an appropriate manner and disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness.”

World Smile Day
October 2, 2015 in the World
The World Smile Day is celebrated on October 02, 2015. The idea of World Smile Day was coined and initiated by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts. He is known to have created the yellow Smiley Face in 1963. The World’s first World Smile Day was held in the year 1999 and has been held annually since.
After Harvey died in 2001, the “Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation” was created to honour his name and memory. The slogan of the Smile Foundation is “improving this world, one smile at a time.” The Foundation continues as the official sponsor of World Smile Day each year.
A smiley, or happy face, is a stylized representation of a smiling human face. It is commonly represented as a yellow (many other colors are also used) circle or sphere with two black dots representing eyes and a black half circle representing the mouth. “Smiley” is also sometimes used as a generic term for any emoticon.

Gandhi Jayanti
October 2, 2015 in India
Gandhi Jayanti takes place on October 02, 2015. Gandhi Jayanti is a national holiday celebrated in India to mark the occasion of the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, the “Father of the Nation”. The United Nations General Assembly announced on 15 June 2007 that it adopted a resolution which declared that October 2 will be celebrated as the International Day of Non-Violence. Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated on October 2, every year and is one of the three official declared National Holidays of India and is observed in all its states and union territories. The other two are Independence Day (15 August) and Republic Day (26 January). The selling of alcohol is banned on all three days which are designated as Dry Days.

World Farm Animals Day
October 2, 2015 in the World
Farm animals are cute, and they also play an important role in modern society. Take some time to appreciate them this World Farm Animals Day. Created in memory of Ghandi, who believed in treating all living beings with respect, World Farm Animals Day was founded to highlight the poor conditions suffered by some farm animals, and promote awareness in the hope something may be done to improve their lives.
While World Farm Animals Day has an important, and sad, origin, in the sense it was created to raise awareness of suffering, it can be celebrated in different ways with children. Taking children for a visit to a farm is a great way to teach them about farm animals, and it’s a good chance to instil in them the message of treating animals with respect. Another great way to celebrate is by donating to an animal protection charity of your choice.

National Manufacturing Day 2015
October 2, 2015 in the USA
National Manufacturing Day provides an opportunity for American manufacturers to collectively showcase the potential of the sector and promote interest in future manufacturing careers. The goal is that by working together “manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.”
Although Manufacturing Day officially occurs on the first Friday in October—this year is October 2, 2015—any day can be a Manufacturing Day.
