53 YEARS AGO: THE BEATLES ‘YELLOW SUBMARINE’ WAS RELEASED.

‘53 YEARS AGO: THE BEATLES ‘YELLOW SUBMARINE’ WAS RELEASED.
Yellow Submarine was primarily the brainchild of George Dunning and Al Broadax — the same duo that spearheaded the Beatles cartoon TV series that aired in the U.S. from 1965-69 — along with art director Heinz Edelmann and Lee Minoff, who wrote the story. But the Beatles wanted as little involvement as possible, so actors were brought in to recreate their voices.
The Simpsons Wouldn’t Exist Without Yellow Submarine.
The movie would fundamentally changed the way viewers experience animation. This year, Yellow Submarine celebrates its 53rd anniversary. In the half century since its release, animation has evolved beyond what could have imagined in the ’60s.
RE-RELEASE
The Beatles’ animated feature film, “Yellow Submarine,” will be re-released in North America in July in celebration of its 53rd anniversary

Protect Your Skin This Summer

Summer Skin Protection

Summer skin protection can be as easy as wearing a hat and keeping your arms covered. Especially for young children, though, SPF sunscreen is essential  when you will be outdoors in the sun. SPF sunscreens with a strength of S30-50 are recommended for children over 6 months. Before 6 months of age, doctors recommend using physical barriers, such as clothing or umbrellas, rather than sunscreen.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S. with an estimated 3.5 million cases diagnosed each year. According to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, it develops as an abnormal or uncontrolled growth of mutated cells of skin, typically in the top layer known as the epidermis. Skin cancer may initially appear as a bump or irregular patch on the skin. The most common types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. It’s critical that you protect yourself

The First Day of Summer Solstice, Sunday, June 20

In 2021, Summer Solstice in Northern Hemisphere will be Sunday, June 20, 11:32 P.M. EDT

Summer 2021 in Northern Hemisphere will begin on Sunday, June 20, 11:32 P.M.

All times are in Pacific Time.

Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.

Schools and universities typically have a summer break to take advantage of the warmer weather and longer days. In almost all countries, children are out of school during this time of year for summer break, although dates vary. In the United States, public schools usually end in early June while colleges get out in early May.

What is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day 2021 occurs on Monday, May 31

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2021 occurs on Monday, May 31. 

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.

Waterloo—which first celebrated the day on May 5, 1866—was chosen because it hosted an annual, community-wide event, during which businesses closed and residents decorated the graves of soldiers with flowers and flags.

Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day; Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.

Memorial Holiday Travel to Recover to 37+ Million


The return of AAA’s Memorial Day holiday travel forecast predicts 60% more travelers than last year, still nearly 6 million fewer than pre-pandemic.

AAA Travel expects a significant recovery in the number of Americans planning to travel this Memorial Day holiday weekend. From May 27 through May 31, more than 37 million people are expected to travel 50 miles or more from home, an increase of 60% from last year when only 23 million traveled, the lowest on record since AAA began recording in 2000.

The expected strong increase in demand from last year’s holiday, which fell during the early phase of the pandemic, still represents 13%—or nearly 6 million—fewer travelers than in 2019.

AAA booking data reveal that domestic travel and road trips remain the biggest drivers of travel recovery in the near term. Orlando and Las Vegas are top Memorial Day destinations this year, both for AAA Travel bookings and TripTik road trip searches. Other top destinations include the following:

Road Trips:

  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Orlando, FL
  • Myrtle Beach, SC
  • Denver, CO
  • Nashville, TN

AAA Travel Bookings:

  • Orlando, FL
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Honolulu, HI
  • Anchorage, AK
  • Colorado Springs, CO

Huge Increase in Air Travel Expected, but Most Memorial Day Travelers to Take Road Trips

With 34 million Americans planning Memorial Day road trips, auto travel is expected to increase 52% compared to 2020.  Nearly 12 million more Americans will travel by car this holiday than in 2020, though this is still 9% less than in 2019. More than 9 in 10 Memorial Day travelers will drive to their destinations, as many Americans continue to substitute road trips for travel via planes, trains and other modes of transportation.

Mother’s Day via FaceTime, Zoom, Skype and Virtual Connecting

Mother’s Day via FaceTime, Zoom, Skype and Virtual Connecting.

When growing up my grandparents lived close by and were a regular presence is my life. But times have changed and kids and grandkids can be scattered all over the place.

Can’t be with your mom on May 9th. Luckily, we have our screens to connect us with those we love so dearly. We all agree the ability to connect via technology is a blessing in our lives.

Recent Skype survey showed that 93% of moms would love to spend Mother’s Day with their children on some type of video conferencing platform if they can’t be together in person?  

Here are a few ideas to have a perfect Mother’s Day even if you can’t be with her in person:

·  Send a gift to your mom and watch her open it over a FaceTime, Zoom, Skype and Virtual Connection call:

·  Get the whole family together and have a group video call with her

·  Have lunch or dinner with her through FaceTime, Zoom, Skype and Virtual Connection.

·  Send her a personalized video message

Hopefully these ideas are of help when creating your Mother’s Day plans.

Number of Awards Presented: 3,140

The Academy Awards, more popularly known as the Oscars, are awards for artistic and technical merit in the film industry. Given annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), the awards are an international recognition of excellence in cinematic achievements as assessed by the Academy’s voting membership. The various category winners are awarded a copy of a golden statuette, officially called the “Academy Award of Merit”, although more commonly referred to by its nickname, the “Oscar”. The statuette depicts a knight rendered in the Art Deco style.

93rd Academy Awards

The award was originally sculpted by George Stanley from a design sketch by Cedric Gibbons. AMPAS first presented it in 1929 at a private dinner hosted by Douglas Fairbanks in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in what would become known as the 1st Academy Awards. The Academy Awards ceremony was first broadcast by radio in 1930 and was televised for the first time in 1953. It is the oldest worldwide entertainment awards ceremony and is now televised live worldwide. It is also the oldest of the four major annual American entertainment awards; its other three equivalents – the Emmy Awards for television, the Tony Awards for theater, and the Grammy Awards for music – are modeled after the Academy Awards.

The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony, which honors the best films of 2020, will be held on April 25, 2021. The ceremony will again be broadcast on ABC. It will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, for the 20th consecutive year

Women’s Life in the Viking Age

Women’s life in the Viking Age
 
Viking Women enjoyed more freedom and held more power in their society than many other women of their day.
 
Women in Viking Age Scandinavia did enjoy an unusual degree of freedom for their day. They could own property, request a divorce and reclaim their dowries if their marriages ended. Women tended to marry between the ages of 12 and 15, and families negotiated to arrange those marriages, but the woman usually had a say in the arrangement. If a woman wanted a divorce, she had to call witnesses to her home and marriage bed, and declare in front of them that she had divorced her husband. The marriage contract usually stated how family property would be divided up in case of a divorce.
 
Woman played an active role in managing her husband, as well as the household. Norse women had full authority in the domestic sphere, especially when their husbands were absent. If the man of the household died, his wife would adopt his role on a permanent basis, singlehandedly running the family farm or trading business. Many women in Viking Age Scandinavia were buried with rings of keys, which symbolized their roles and power as household managers.

Earth Day: Support for environmental protection

Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First held on April 22, 1970, it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EARTHDAY.ORG (formerly Earth Day Network) including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries.

Earth Day Significance: Support for environmental protection

In 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco, peace activist John McConnell proposed a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace, to first be observed on March 21, 1970, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. This day of nature’s equipoise was later sanctioned in a proclamation written by McConnell and signed by Secretary General U Thant at the United Nations. A month later a United States Senator Gaylord Nelson proposed the idea to hold a nationwide environmental teach-in on April 22, 1970. He hired a young activist, Denis Hayes, to be the National Coordinator. Nelson and Hayes renamed the event “Earth Day”. Denis and his staff grew the event beyond the original idea for a teach-in to include the entire United States. More than 20 million people poured out on the streets, and the first Earth Day remains the largest single day protest in human history. Key non-environmentally focused partners played major roles. Under the leadership of labor leader Walter Reuther, for example, the United Auto Workers was the most instrumental outside financial and operational supporter of the first Earth Day. According to Hayes, “Without the UAW, the first Earth Day would have likely flopped!” Nelson was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom award in recognition of his work.

The first Earth Day was focused on the United States. In 1990, Denis Hayes, the original national coordinator in 1970, took it international and organized events in 141 nations.

On Earth Day 2016, the landmark Paris Agreement was signed by the United States, China, and some 120 other countries. This signing satisfied a key requirement for the entry into force of the historic draft climate protection treaty adopted by consensus of the 195 nations present at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.

Numerous communities engaged in Earth Day Week actions, an entire week of activities focused on the environmental issues that the world faces.

On Earth Day 2020, over 100 million people around the world observed the 50th anniversary in what is being referred to as the largest online mass mobilization in history.

Celebrities Make a Stand for COVID-19 Vaccines on TV Special

LOS ANGELES – President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama and a slew of celebrities including Billy Crystal, Jennifer Hudson and Lin-Manuel Miranda are part of a special aimed at boosting COVID-19 vaccination rates.

“Roll Up Your Sleeves,” airing at 7 p.m. EDT Sunday on NBC, will feature Matthew McConaughey interviewing Dr. Anthony Fauci to help separate “fact from fiction” about the vaccines, the network said.

Biden will make a direct appeal in support of the effort, while Obama will be joined by basketball greats Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal to reinforce the role of vaccines in allowing Americans to get their lives back on track.

Former first lady Michelle Obama will team with Miranda, Faith Hill and Jennifer Lopez in support of shots during the hour-long special hosted by spouses Russell Wilson, the NFL quarterback, and actor-singer Ciara.

Other announced highlights include comedy from Billy Crystal and Wanda Sykes and appearances by TV doctors Eric Dane, Ryan Eggold, Ellen Pompeo, Jane Seymour and Ken Jeong, who’s also a real M.D. 

Also set to appear are Sterling K. Brown, Lana Condor, Jennifer Hudson, Dale Jarrett, Joe Jonas, Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato, Joel McHale, Kumail Nanjiani and Amanda Seyfried. 

Nearly 100 million people across the U.S. have already received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine — and now Michelle Obama and a few famous friends will do their part to encourage the rest of the country to get their shots.

The former first lady, Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey and “Hamilton” creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda will appear in the hourlong special “Roll Up Your Sleeves,” airing April 18 on NBC

SPRING has SPRUNG, begins on Saturday, March 20 and ends on Sunday, June 20

SPRING has SPRUNG

Spring 2021 in Northern Hemisphere begins on Saturday, March 20 and ends on Sunday, June 20
During early spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt relative to the Sun, and the length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly, causing new plant growth to “spring forth,” giving the season its name.

At the spring, or vernal, equinox, days are approximately 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses.

Swedish meteorologists define the beginning of spring as the first occasion on which the average daytime temperature exceeds zero degrees Celsius for seven consecutive days, thus the date varies with latitude and elevation.
