    About Disabled Access Day

    In 2015 Disabled Access Day began as a day to celebrate good
    access and created opportunities for people to try something new.

    The day was about highlighting the fantastic access that already
    exists in places, such as touch tours, relaxed performances,
    sensory experiences, level access and of course a warm welcome!

    Who is behind Disabled Access Day?

    Disabled Access Day is sponsored by Euan’s Guide: a listing and
    review site that helps disabled people, their friends and families
    know which venues that are accessible.

    Kiki MacDonald, Co-Founder of Euan's Guide, explains: "We were
    inspired by the idea of Disabled Access Day and the potential for it
    to increase the numbers of conversations between venues and
    disabled people, as well as to raise the profile of disabled access.

    We were delighted by the backing from many venues,
    organisations and businesses that got involved, in particular their
    appetite to improve their own accessibility and to get more
    feedback from disabled people."

    What is healthcare science week?

    This week is an opportunity for your healthcare science
    professionals to educate and inspire the scientific workforce of the
    future. It also enables people in your local community to learn
    about what scientists do and the vital role they play in patient care
    and treatment.

    When is it taking place?

    Healthcare Science Week 2017 takes place from 10 - 19 March
    alongside British Science Week.

    Who should get involved?

    Now is the time to encourage lead scientists and ambassadors to
    start planning their local activity. Your trust could have a stand in a
    public area or the foyer of the hospital, give a presentation in a
    school or college, or invite school and college students into one of
    the healthcare science departments. For inspiration, take a look at
    last year's activity in our Healthcare Science Week 2016 social
    media round-up.

    This year, we are using the hashtag #hcsweek17 so don't forget to
    include it in all your social media activity to build momentum. You
    can also join the twibbon campaign by adding the HCS twibbon
    @WeHCScientists to your twitter profile.

    Resources

    Information and resources are available to organisations to help
    make Healthcare Science Week 2017 a success >>>>

    Yes.

    A hippo is for life, not just for the cute bit!


    I do wish that maxim could be drummed into the heads of people who don't care that mother chimps are killed to provide them with their cute little baby chimp, who then grows up into a wacking great, extremely powerful and destructive chimp, which they then can't cope with.


    The same goes for numskulls who hadn't realised that puppies wee and poo and chew stuff, and that 'teenage' dogs need a lot of time spent on them, training-wise, if they are not to be even more destructive, or worse still, aggressive.

    World Plumbing Day



    World Plumbing Day is an international event, initiated by the
    World Plumbing Council, held on 11 March each year to recognise
    the important role plumbing plays in societal health and amenity.

    The WPC, through its member countries and its partnerships with
    bodies like the World Health Organisation, works all year round to
    promote the benefits of safe plumbing, but in 2010 it decided to
    launch the concept of embedding a single day on the world’s
    calendar dedicated to plumbing.

    The idea was that on March 11 each year people all over the world
    would pause to reflect on the vital role plumbing plays in
    preserving their health and way of life – in the case of countries
    like ours – or in building sustainable disease free futures for
    millions in the developing world.

    And so World Plumbing Day was born, and it is big and getting
    bigger all the time.



    https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/world-plumbing-day/





    World Plumbing Day (11 March) is intended to provide anyone or
    any organisation involved in the global plumbing industry with an
    opportunity to promote the important role played by the industry.

    It is hoped that all forms of media (written, TV and radio) will
    report on activities being undertaken to celebrate the Day and that
    people in many countries will gain a better understanding of
    plumbing.

    This list of suggested activities has been compiled by the World
    Plumbing Council to provide ideas as to how to promote and
    celebrate World Plumbing Day. It is not intended to be exhaustive
    and WPC is sure that there will be other equally useful and
    effective ways of promoting the Day. Anything which alerts people
    to the fact that plumbing is important is good! >>>>

    The Daily Courant - Britain’s first newspaper



    11th March 1702

    The Daily Courant, initially published on 11 March 1702, was the
    first British daily newspaper.

    It was produced by Elizabeth Mallet at her premises next to the
    King's Arms tavern at Fleet Bridge in London. The newspaper
    consisted of a single page, with advertisements on the reverse
    side.

    Mallet advertised that she intended to publish only foreign news
    and would not add any comments of her own, supposing her
    readers to have "sense enough to make reflections for
    themselves."

    You needed really good eyesight to read those early papers. Our local one has been celebrating 150 years & printed their first copy as a souvenir. Made interesting reading and you had to admire the typesetters skill with all those little tiles.

    John Bull



    John Bull is an imaginary figure who is a personification of England,
    similar to the American 'Uncle Sam'. He is shown in cartoons and
    caricatures as a prosperous farmer of the 18th century.

    John Bull first appears as a character in a series of political satires
    by John Arbuthnot (1667-1735). Arbuthnot was a Scottish scientist,
    doctor and political satirist. His series of John Bull pamphlets, 'The
    History of John Bull', introduced John Bull as the typical
    Englishman: "an honest plain-dealing fellow, choleric, bold, and of
    a very inconstant temper" (from Law is a Bottomless Pit).

    By 1762 James Gillray and other caricature engravers had
    incorporated John Bull into their work, and he appeared as a
    cartoon by Sir John Tenniel in Punch magazine.

    John Bull

    English composer, musician and organ builder



    Died 12 March 1628

    There was a John Bull in real life, one of the most distinguished
    English keyboard players of his time. John Bull (1562 - 1628) was
    in the service of Queen Elizabeth I before taking refuge in the
    Netherlands to avoid various charges, including adultery, levelled
    at him in England.

    He was known as an organist and a virginalist.*

    Bull wrote keyboard compositions, the best known of which is The
    King's Hunt. He is also regarded as the composer of 'God Save the
    King' - the melody is supposed to have been found amongst his
    papers after he died.

    *Virginal - a form of keyboard instrument with a mechanism for
    plucking rather than hammering the strings.

    National Butchers Week



    National Butchers Week promotes the work of the traditional
    butcher. On a mission this year to help the internet generation find
    their way around a butcher’s shop, it addresses the huge gap in
    knowledge that was created when, several decades ago, cookery
    teaching in secondary schools became non-compulsory and largely
    extinct.

    The demise of the high street butcher

    The local butcher became an endangered creature with the boom
    of cheap foods that accompanied the rise of the supermarket. Meat
    became something in a polythene tray entombed in cling film that
    may or may not suit its purpose. Cheaper cuts of meat, indeed any
    actual cuts at all, were sidelined in favour of ‘premium’ steaks or
    homogonous ‘stewing’ beef that required very little of the cook and
    offered even less in terms of quality and flavor. If you were lucky
    enough to find an actual butcher it would likely be of the ‘three
    roasting joints for a tenner’ kind of outlet where bacon comes vac-
    packed in 2kg lumps, half of which would be water. This may
    sound like outright snobbery, but maybe that is because the quest
    for decent food in Britain is seen as a middle class pursuit

    The return of the local butcher

    Luckily, as recent industry numbers show, things are on the turn.
    The local butcher’s shop is making a comeback, with many areas
    of Britain showing over a forty percent increase; a rise that must
    have come from increased demand. Butchers provide a unique
    service (or they should do if they want to keep those Master
    Craftsmen stripes) that cannot be found at the supermarket
    counter. They provide all available cuts of meat, often cut to order,
    and are generous with their knowledge about what to do with it.

    Surveys show that people, young people in particular, would
    choose not to shop in a butcher’s shop as they feel they do not
    have the knowledge required to make a sensible purchase. The
    public need to be shown that it is ok, even expected, not to have
    this knowledge as no-one has helped them to acquire it. The
    butcher is ready and willing to help and advise every step of the
    way; you will learn more from a decent butcher than you will from
    a lifetime of books.

    National Butchers' Week 2017 - 13th to 19th March

    This year's National Butchers' Week will focus on the fantastic
    innovation that takes place within butchers' shops across the land.

    Rod Addy, editor of Meat Trades Journal, said it was a chance to
    get creative. "National Butchers' Week is an opportunity for a
    business to show off its creativity. Some of the most successful
    butchers in the country do amazing work to create new dishes that
    tempt customers and increase basket spend."

    National Butchers' Week 2017 will be a great opportunity to
    develop a new product and test it out on your customers, or even
    come up with a new recipe that shoppers can create at home,
    using the products bought at your shop. As well as growing sales
    and inspiring your customers, these new ideas could help create
    loyal shoppers that will keep coming back to see what else you've
    come up with.

    Fifty-two countries come together today to celebrate
    Commonwealth Day under the theme ‘A Peace-building
    Commonwealth’.

    Commonwealth Day, held on the second Monday in March each
    year, is an opportunity for individuals, communities and
    organisations to promote the Commonwealth’s shared values of
    peace, democracy and equality, and to celebrate the association’s
    rich diversity.

    The day is marked across the globe by a range of activities,
    including a multi-faith service at Westminster Abbey in London.
    This service is traditionally attended by Her Majesty The Queen,
    the Head of the Commonwealth, High Commissioners, the
    Commonwealth Secretary-General, and dignitaries from across the
    Commonwealth, as well as senior politicians and 800 school
    children.



    This year’s theme, ‘A Peace-building Commonwealth’ will help
    guide our activities and those of Commonwealth organisations
    throughout the year.

    Brain awareness week .. does that mean that I am going to have to spend some time trying to find out if I have one?
    Just took me 15 mins to get into my office due to the fact I couldn't remember the door code.

    To be fair it was changed whilst I was off last week, so hadn't used the new code in anger so to speak.

    I'm terrible with my pin number as I don't use it much nowadays with contactless!
