Happy Hour Day

 12 November is Happy Hour Day

De geschiedenis:

Surprisingly, something that most of us associate with fun after work in mostly urban settings, actually got its start with the U.S. Navy as far back as 1914.  (However, in 1900 “Happy Hour” social clubs did exist.)

Happy Hours, as we know them today, got started during the early days of the Mexican-American war. During the occupation of Veracruz Harbor,  American sailors aboard the U.S.S. Arkansas were the subject of desperate reporters looking to fill out mundane stories after earlier fighting had used up all the exciting copy. Notices,  as in this lead in the “Washington Times” of May 1, 1914, “ ‘The Happy Hour’ Aboard Ship Makes U.S. Tars (short for “tar heels”, a slang for sailors from North Carolina) Contented.” were common. After a busy day, happy hours boosted morale with boxing matches, dancing and drinking. (Although liquor was expressly banned from naval vessels starting in 1899, sailors may have sneaked booze onboard.)

  • Sangria Day
  • Egg Nog Day
  • Champagne Day
  • Bloody Mary Day

3D printers can cost wherever between $200 to $150,000 depending on the technology being used. The library 3D printers are receiving extra use as extra classes utilize these devices Hand Held Massager for content material assignments. When we first obtained the 3D printer, we began small with individual college students creating and printing personal designs. We have been encouraged by the coed creativity and excitement. The Special Education Department already had the STL recordsdata designed by ActiveAcessEdu. We used this as a problem-solving challenge and determined to label every braille stamper with the corresponding written letter.
