  • | NATL - Trivia
    - Celebrated on October 23rd each year from 6:02 AM to 6:02 PM in observance of the "mole". For 2015 the Mole Day theme is "May the MOLES be with you." The "mole" is a way of counting the Avogadro number, 6.02 x 10 to the 23rd power, of anything (just as a "dozen" is a way of counting 12 of anything). Mole Day owes its existence to an early 19th-century Italian physics professor named Amedeo Avogadro. He discovered that the number of molecules in a mole is the same for all substances. Because of this, chemists are able to precisely measure quantities of chemicals in the laboratory. Mole Day is celebrated to help all persons, especially chemistry students, become enthused about chemistry, which is the central science.

    - Every year approximately 4 million cats enter shelters, and 1-2 million are euthanized. Often cats are overlooked and underappreciated because they don't usually have jobs like dogs. Yet cats still lower blood pressure, offer unconditional love and companionship and alert their owners of danger. Cats have so many purr-sonalities and there is so much to love about them! On National Cat Day, please visit a local shelter and offer to love and save a life by adopting a cat.

Perhaps the only ancient Egyptian royal tomb to have escaped plundering by grave robbers, it was discovered more than 3,000 years after Tutankhamen's death by English archaeologist Howard Carter, leader if an expedition financed by Lord Carnarvon. The priceless relics yielded by King Tut's tomb were placed in Egypt's National Museum at Cairo.

    - As the name implies, World Kindness Day is about being kind to the world. The "Lonely Planet" not only refers to a travel guide, it is descriptive of Earth - the only planet in our solar system known to be teeming with life. It's all we have, and it's in everyone's best interest to make it the nicest place to live. There are many ways to share kindness on this day: Try to smile at 10 people today; leave something special on a neighbor's doorstep - flowers, a basked good, an invitation to share a meal; write a thank you or draw a picture for someone you love; pick up some trash; and lots more.
