Electric Light Birthday 1879
- Contrary to popular belief, Thomas Edison didn't invent the lightbulb, but rather he improved upon a 50-year-old idea. In 1879, using lower current electricity, a small carbonized filament, and an improved vacuum inside the globe, he was able to produce a reliable, long-lasting source of light.

Vietnam War Protesters Storm Pentagon
- Some 250 protesters were arrested when thousands of the 50,000 participants in a rally against the Vietnam War at Washington, DC, crossed the Potomac River and stormed the Pentagon. No shots were fired, but many demonstrators were struck with nightsticks and rifle butts.

Toy Camera Day
- Once upon a time, not too long ago, Tomy (yes, an actual toy manufacturer) made a toy camera - the Tolne. Because of the small production run, they became a bit of a legend, and extremely difficult to find.

Woolly Worm Festival
- Wooly bear caterpillars race up three-foot-long strings. The overall winner has the honor of predicting the severity of the coming winter.

Image: Sloths: Life in the Slow Lane, by Dr. Rebecca Cliffe (Author), Suzi Eszterhas (Photographer). Publisher: The Sloth Conservation Foundation (2017)International Sloth Day
-- created by Foundation AIUNAU who acquired this compromise on the First international meeting about the well-being, rehabilitation, and conservation of sloths, held in Medellin, Colombia, November of 2010. It was created as a necessity to bring the world of sloths and their forest to the citizens/people as a process of sensibilization towards wildlife. These species are so special, these cryptic and shy beings inspire us and awaken our tender feelings. There is a lot sloths can teach us – respect, tenderness, joy, sharing. Nevertheless, in our lack of awareness, we harm them so much and bring their existence in danger of extinction.

Read: Sloths: Life in the Slow Lane
-- Sloth expert Dr. Rebecca Cliffe has teamed up with world-renowned wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas to produce this stunning coffee-table book that takes readers on an immersive journey through the jungles of South America to discover the secret lives of sloths. The story is illustrated through spectacular imagery capturing some of the most intimate and rarely seen moments, while the narrative reveals some of the latest scientific discoveries and provides fascinating insights into the previously unknown habits of these unusual animals.

This slow-moving friend looks just like the sloths you’d find in nature, with long arms and its characteristic three toes.

Image: Schleich Sloth Action Figures
Sloth Action Figure -- The Sloth spends almost its entire life in the trees of tropical rainforest. Its curved claws give it a firm grip on the branches of the trees. Since it always hangs from the branches upside down, the Sloth fur grows from its belly towards its back, instead of growing from its back or head. This allows rainwater to drain away better. Like real sloths, this one hangs from branches!
