10-things-you-didnt-know-about-thanksgiving-in-canada

2. From 1921 to 1930, Thanksgiving Day was combined with Armistice Day (now Remembrance Day), celebrated on November 11th. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October 1931, except in 1935, when there was a conflict between this holiday and the date of the general election.

 

3. In 1957, Thanksgiving became a national holiday. The Canadian parliament declared Monday the second of October as a day off to thank "for the abundant harvest with which Canada has been blessed."

 

4. Although federally recognized, Thanksgiving Day in Canada is not a day off in Prince Edward, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

 

5. Why is turkey eaten on this day? Nobody knows for sure. There are many theories about how the turkey became the predominant meal on Thanksgiving, including the fact that this bird could be easily found and is large enough to feed a family.

 

6. 20.2 million turkeys are sold annually in Canada, according to Statistics Canada. The data is from 2018. A little over 390 million dollars are the annual revenues made by farms that grow turkeys.

 

7. On Thanksgiving Day 2019, 2.5 million whole turkeys were bought by Canadians, the equivalent of 39% of sales during the year, according to the Turkey Growers Association.

 

8. But Thanksgiving is not the day to eat the most turkey. At Christmas 2019, 2.7 million turkeys were bought by Canadians, equivalent to 42% of annual sales.

 

9. 64.3% of all cranberries consumed in Canada come from Quebec and 38.9% of apples consumed come from Ontario.

 

10. The United States celebrates Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November. One possible explanation is that the harvest season is earlier in Canada, due to the colder climate than in the United States.

10-fun-and-interesting-facts-about-the-national-dog-show-on-thanksgiving-bemorepanda

One of the most iconic events in the world of dog owners will happen this year in the United States of America. The greatest tradition for Thanksgiving Day is to watch the National Dog Show.


For many Americans, the National Dog Show, which selects the best dogs in the country in various categories, has long become something of a Football Super Bowl.


Presented by Purina and hosted by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia, the show is about more than 150 American Kennel Club-sanctioned breeds and varieties competing for Best of Breed, First in Group and the top-dog spot: Best in Show. Bemorepanda prepared 10 facts about the National Dog Show.


1.Four-legged participants and their owners make applications six months in advance to be among the contestants.


2.Each dog must pass the strictest selection conditions and meet certain parameters. To do this, you must have special medical certificates confirming the excellent health and impeccable physical fitness of the animal.


3.All animals must be vaccinated and treated against parasites with special drugs such as Advantix.


4.The first event of this magnitude was held in Pennsylvania in 2001. Then the organizers managed to "lure" about a thousand pets to the competition, a year later the number of participants increased threefold, and in 2005 about 100 breeds of dogs came to the exhibition.


5.The American Kennel Club's  birthday is September 17, 1884. It was then that a group of 12 keen dog breeders met at the Philadelphia Kennel Club.


6.National Dog Show is one of the so-called "big trinity" of the most prestigious dog shows in the world.


7.The order of the show is traditional and consists of three stages. Each tailed participant is first judged in the "breed" rings, where the best representative of the breed is selected. The next step is to select the best representative of the group, of which there are seven. The finale of the show is the Best in Show selection - the best of the best.


8.The National Dog Show is NBC's top-rated broadcast of the show airs at noon Thanksgiving Day, immediately following the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. 


9.There may be more than 2,000 dogs entered in the show, but when the coveted Best in Show competition takes place, you'll only see seven dogs. 


10.205 breeds and varieties are eligible to participate in the National Dog Show. However, the majority of viewers choose “out of competition” activities - demonstration performances in different disciplines, where dogs demonstrate contact with the owner, intelligence, speed and strength.

top-100-interesting-things-from-wtf-facts-the-most-popular-facts-page-on-twitter

The concept of fact-checking came to new media from traditional journalism. More precisely, from the principles of the editorial office: an editorial filter is a necessary condition in the technology of a journalist's work. This technology is due to ethical principles: independence, objectivity, impartiality, accuracy. Due to the observance of these principles, the trust of the audience appears and the reputation of the publication is formed.

 

A fact is an event supported by reliable evidence. Different people may have different views on the same event, but you can't argue with the facts. That is why the fact should not only be established, but verified, rechecked and “cast in granite”.

 

Therefore, distortion of facts is a crime against objectivity and accuracy. Worse if it is a deliberate crime against independence and impartiality. It’s very bad when it’s a deliberate manipulative construct.

 

In modern digital communications, the concept of "factoid" is becoming more and more relevant. This is an initially non-existent fact, which, being published in the media, receives a lively reaction and assessment. And they, in turn, affect the picture of the world and the actions of people. The truth is not that important, in fact, if the effect is real.

 

Bemorepanda has prepared some interesting facts about everything in the world. WTF Facts is one of the most famous Twitter pages, here you will find a lot of interesting facts that will amaze you. Bemorepanda is at your disposal so that every day the most interesting things reach the screens of your devices.

 

Top 100 interesting things from WTF Facts

 

1.A speeding ticket in Finland

 

2.Free people in Mexico

 

3.Winning lottery

 

In Russia there is a famous story. This is very reminiscent of the episode of the cartoon about kolobok investigators, where the evil animal dealer Karbofos buys a porcelain elephant from a junk dealer, gets a certificate on him, breaks the now unnecessary trinket and says: "The elephant is bad, the certificate is good!" After that, according to this certificate, he leads a live elephant across the border. The rustic border guard stupidly looks at the certificate, correlates what is written in it with what he sees, and lets the animal across the border.

 

Likewise, people for the most part, following automatisms and stereotypes, trust the form, not critically perceiving the essence. There is a help - come through. On TV they said - it means the truth. Journalists won't lie! Even if the host of a popular talk show is in the frame, and not a journalist in the full sense of the word.

 

In the same way, various phenomena and events are actualized and legalized. Unconsciously or prudently, they are embedded in the form of "confirmed" facts in the information picture, as a result, distorting the entire canvas. This technique is actively used by propagandists, cyber fighters, network trolls and other manipulators of all stripes.

 

4.Support dogs in Zoo

 

5.Golden Arm

 

The fact checker's main weapon is doubt. Professional mistrust, reality check. Here, the logic and toolkit of fact-checking largely coincides with the methodologies and technologies of scientific work. Moreover, a course on source study specialized for historians can raise the level of quality of a journalist's work with sources by an order of magnitude. Be it living interlocutors or material carriers of natural and artificial origin.

 

Newspaper ducks, gossip, rumors, speculation, factoids, manipulations, irresponsible and malicious fakes, technical errors and typos - all this scum is opposed by fact-checking. This is a powerful weapon, which, alas, is often not well known to those who work in the field of mass communications.
