Today it is celebrated world light daywas founded by UNESCO. It is dedicated to the role of light in human life. The date of celebration was May 16, when, in 1960, the world’s first successful laser demonstration took place.
Holidays that are full of complexity are neither fun nor comfortable.
May 16 is celebrated International Day for Peaceful Coexistenceproclaimed by the UN General Assembly with the aim of continuously mobilizing the efforts of the international community to promote peace, tolerance, unity, mutual understanding and solidarity of the peoples of the Earth.
Peaceful coexistence includes recognizing differences, the ability to listen, understand, respect and value others, and the ability to live in peace and unity.
It is celebrated every year on the third Sunday of May World AIDS Remembrance Day. In 2021, this date is May 16th. On this day, it is common to remember people who died of AIDS. This is done, among other things, in order to draw the attention of the world community to the problems of AIDS patients and the carriers of HIV infection, as well as to the spread of this disease in the world.
The symbol of the day is a red ribbon pinned to clothes, as well as colorful canvases – quilts sewn from scraps of fabric.
According to statistics, there are 37 million people on the planet (for 2019) who have been infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and every day this number increases by another 14-15 thousand. The majority of people infected with HIV are young people under the age of 30. By the end of 2018, approximately 32 million people had died of AIDS.
May 16 is celebrated Biographers Day. Today, knowledgeable and curious people are celebrating the anniversary of Samuel Johnson’s first meeting with his biographer, James Boswell. The men met at a bookstore in London in 1763 and the result of the meeting was the two-volume Life of Samuel Johnson, published in 1791, which, according to many literary critics, became the largest biography in English, popular and read to this day. .
Thanks to the meticulous and tireless work of biographers, even the most seemingly insignificant information about the lives of great people of a particular era, about the manners and customs of that era have survived to this day. The names of many prominent biographers have been forgotten. Therefore, today’s holidays are another reason to celebrate the benefits of those who often stay in the shadows.
May 16, 1924 The first issue of Murzilka magazine was published in the Soviet UnionIt was created in the “Labor Newspaper”, and Murzilka was a red puppy that accompanied its owner everywhere – the boy Petka. This Murzilka did not last long and in 1937 a new Murzilka appeared – a species of fluffy yellow creature, which, having undergone some changes, has survived to this day.
In Soviet times, Murzilka’s main task was to educate children in the spirit of Soviet patriotism, respect for work, collectivity and camaraderie.
Now – and Murzilka magazine is still published – a glossy color edition, as before, full of interesting, informative materials on topics that appeal not only to young readers, but also to their parents. The magazine is published once a month, with a circulation of 45,000 copies (2017).
In 2011, the magazine was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as “the longest-lived children’s magazine”.
May 16 in the USA The first Oscar ceremony took place – Annual National Award from the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It took place at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood and lasted 15 minutes and was attended by about 250 people. By the way, the name “Oscar” has not been used yet (appeared in 1934). All the nominees were awarded the so-called “Thank you reviews”.
The winners were then announced three months before the ceremony itself and the results were reported to the press, which published them at the same time as the awards ceremony. This continued until 1945, when the Los Angeles Times published the results more than two hours before the ceremony, so sealed envelopes from the following year appeared.
Today it is the premier film award in the United States and one of the most famous film awards in the world. Unlike most film awards, the Oscars are awarded by a popular vote of the members of the Academy (and not by a jury). Since the beginning of 2018, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has over 7,000 voting members.
