World Teachers’ Day
October 5, 2015 in the World
World Teachers’ Day is celebrated on October 05, 2015. The day, which is held annually, commemorates teachers’ organizations worldwide. Its aim is to mobilize support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers. Today World Teachers’ Day is observed in more than 100 countries.
According to UNESCO, World Teachers’ Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development. Education International (EI), the global union federation that represents education professionals worldwide, strongly believes that World Teachers’ Day should be internationally recognized and celebrated around the world.
A teacher or schoolteacher is a person who provides education for pupils (children) and students (adults). In many countries, a person who wishes to become a teacher must first obtain specified professional qualifications or credentials from a university or college. Education in its broadest, general sense is the means through which the aims and habits of a group of people lives on from one generation to the next.

International Day of No Prostitution
October 5, 2015 in the World
International Day of No Prostitution (IDNP) is an awareness day that was first observed in 2002. Locations at which IDNP was observed in its inaugural year included the San Francisco Bay Area of California, United States and Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The day is celebrated annually on October 5 as a manner of opposing prostitution
In 2005, the University of the Philippines Institute of Human Rights and the Asia-Pacific chapter of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) organized an IDNP event at which they discussed the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2003. In 2008, there was an IDNP candlelight vigil in Phoenix, Arizona. The vigil took place again in 2010, and city leaders and former prostitutes were among the participants. In 2010, CATW observed IDNP by opposing the decision in Bedford v. Canada to strike down Canada’s anti-prostitution laws. A group of former human trafficking victims and sex workers in Canada also opposed the striking down of these laws; they picketed a courthouse in downtown Toronto, Ontario in recognition of IDNP. Picketers included Natasha Falle, Trisha Baptie, Bridget Perrier, Katarina MacLeod, and Christine Barkhouse. At the protest, Falle said that “only 1% of prostitutes say they enjoy sex with johns and 97% say they want to get out.” Baptie asked “Why do we think it’s OK for men to buy sex? How is that a sign of an egalitarian society?”

National Do Something Nice Day
October 5, 2015 in the USA
National Do Something Nice Day is very similar to National Random Acts of Kindness Day, which is celebrated on February 17.
It would be ideal if everyone lived their lives doing something nice, or doing nice things, on a daily basis and without thinking about it.  Today serves as a reminder to us all, as it is easy to get caught up with hectic schedules and fast paced lifestyles, to stop for a moment and do something nice.
