Martin (Editor). Publisher: Rodale Books; Revised, Updated edition (June 5, 2018)Learn About Composting Day
-- Composting is the decomposition of plant remains and other once-living materials to make an earthy, dark, crumbly substance that is excellent for adding to houseplants or enriching garden soil. It is the way to recycle your yard and kitchen wastes and is a critical step in reducing the volume of garbage needlessly sent to landfills for disposal. It's easy to learn how to compost.

-- This revised edition of The Rodale Book of Composting includes all the latest in new techniques, technology, and equipment. Gardeners know composting is the best way to feed the soil and turn food scraps into fresh produce, but even urbanites can get on board thanks to programs like compost pickup and citywide food waste initiatives—there’s no better way to reduce landfill waste (and subsequent emissions) and dependence on fossil fuels while nourishing the earth.

The drum rotates on top of the base to create solid compost, and if you choose to do so, the base allows you to collect the excess liquid from the drum as compost tea, a precious liquid fertilizer.

Image: Jack's Path of Courage: The Life of John F. Kennedy, by Doreen Rappaport. Publisher: Hyperion Book CH (October 26, 2010)John F Kennedy's Birthday (1917)
-- John F. Kennedy was the youngest man elected President; he was the youngest to die. Of Irish descent, he was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, on May 29, 1917.

Read: Jack's Path of Courage: The Life of John F. Kennedy, by Doreen Rappaport
-- John F. Kennedy was a popular, charismatic president, beloved by many. But he didn't always believe he had the strength or courage for that office. As a child, he was sickly and also overshadowed by his strong, capable, athletic older brother Joe. After Joe Jr.'s death, John had to work hard to live up to his own expectations and to those of his father. He overcame pain and self-doubt to see the country through one of the most difficult crises in its history.

Image: United Nations - Peacekeeper? (Global Issues), by Edward Johnson. Publisher: Hodder Wayland (June 30, 1995)International Day Of United Nations Peacekeepers Day
-- The date, May 29th, was chosen because on that day in 1948, the first UN peacekeeping mission, the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), began operations, with a group of unarmed military observers in Palestine. In a videotaped message to be broadcast to peacekeepers around the world on the Day, Secretary-General Kofi Annan emphasized that the mission of UN peacekeeping remains vital. While peacekeeping by itself cannot end a war … it can prevent a recurrence of fighting. Above all, it gives time and space for conflict resolution. It gives peace a chance.

Read: United Nations - Peacekeeper?, by Edward Johnson
-- A history of the UN and a discussion of its peace-keeping missions since its inception. Johnson discusses both its successes and failures and the reasons. The book contains up-to-date maps; a good glossary; fact files that give concise facts about the areas under discussion; media watches, which offer relevant news clippings from major news sources; and an abundance of photos and maps.
