Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving today. Usually an occasion to reunite with family or friends, this year the holiday is affected by the sanitary measures required by the authorities in an attempt to stop the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bemorepanda is here to surprise you.

 

Here are some things you may not know about this Canadian holiday.

 

1. The first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated in Canada in 1578, when the English sailor Martin Frobisher arrived on Baffin Island with his crew. They celebrated with a dinner the fact that they arrived safely at their destination.

 

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.

30-most-amazing-and-unknown-facts-about-amazon-and-jeff-bezoz-that-you-need-to-know-bemorepanda

Everyone knows Amazon.com, where you can order fast and convenient delivery of everything. Its creator, Jeff Bezos, promises that it will soon be possible to deliver orders in 10 minutes using aerial drones. But few have heard of Relentless.com. By typing this address in a search engine, you will be automatically redirected to Amazon.

 

The fact is that "Relentless" is one of the first names that 30-year-old Bezos came up with for his online store. The second option was "Kadabra" as part of a magic spell. But both did not pass, then Bezos simply took a dictionary from the shelf and chose one of the first words he came across - the Amazon River. Thus began one of the most successful business stories in the world. It has a bit of magic and ruthlessness.

 

Brad Stone's book "The Everything Store" is about Jeff Bezos and the Amazon era, which explores the early years of Amazon and how it evolved from an online bookstore to today's e-commerce giant. Bemorepanda have collected some interesting facts about Amazon from this book.

 

The Skills that Made Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Successful | Fortune

 

1. Amazon originally had a different name.

 

Jeff Bezos wanted to give his company the name Cadabra, which sounded like part of a spell.

 

But Amazon's first lawyer, Todd Tarbert, said the name was too similar to the word cadaver, which translates from English as "corpse." Customers may have misheard such a name on the phone.

 

Bezos also liked the title Relentless. By the way, if you go to Relentless.com, you will be redirected to the Amazon home page.

 

Finally, Bezos chose the name Amazon - he liked the idea of ​​naming the company after the largest river in the world. It can be seen on the original Amazon logo.

 

2. There used to be a bell in the company's office that would ring whenever someone made a purchase on Amazon

 

After a few weeks, the bell began to ring so often that it had to be removed.

 

3. Initially, Bezos opened a company in his garage. The servers required so much power that when Bezos and his wife turned on a hairdryer or vacuum cleaner in the house, they would short-circuit.

 

4. In its first month of operation, Amazon sold books to people from all 50 states of America and 45 different countries.

 

5. A little-known lichen book saved Amazon from bankruptcy.

 

Book distributors demanded to buy books in batches of ten, but Amazon didn't need that much, and the company wouldn't have enough money to buy them.

 

But in the end, there was one loophole with which it was possible to bypass this rule. Amazon began ordering one book and nine copies of some obscure lichen book that was always out of stock.

6. Bezos used to hold meetings at the Barnes & Noble bookstore.

 

In the early days of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, his wife Mackenzie, and their first employee, Shel Kafan, held meetings at a local Barnes and Noble store.

 

In 1996, Bezos met with the shopkeepers, and they said they respect him, but they are still going to launch a site that will destroy Amazon. Barnes and Noble co-founder Len Riggio wanted to call this site the Book Predator.

 

7. Jeff Bezos wanted his employees to work at least 60 hours a week.

 

Previously, the company did not know what it meant to maintain a balance between work and personal life. One of the first employees said that he worked without rest for more than eight months: he came to work early in the morning and returned late at night. He constantly rode his bike to work and completely forgot about the minibus that was parked at his house.

 

He didn’t have time to check his mail, and when he did open it, he saw several parking tickets, a notification from the tow truck and, finally, a message that his minibus was sold at an auction.

 

8. In 1998, Amazon had a very busy Christmas.

 

At that time, the company had a significant staff shortage. At Christmas time, all fulfillment center employees had to work the night shift. They called for help from friends and relatives and sometimes slept in their cars to go straight to work in the morning.

 

After this incident, Amazon promised to make sure that the next holidays the company has enough employees who would be able to fulfill the holiday orders. This is why Amazon is recruiting so many seasonal workers these days.

 

9. When eBay came along, Amazon launched its own auction site.

 

The idea failed, but Bezos liked it.

 

For $ 40,000, he bought the skeleton of a primeval cave bear and displayed it in the lobby of Amazon headquarters. This skeleton stands there to this day, and next to it is a sign "Please do not feed the bear."

 

10. Bezos enjoyed growing his company quickly, leading to chaos in Amazon's order centers.

 

In the late 90s and early 2000s, Amazon was in chaos. Centers were closed for several hours due to system failures, and mountains of goods were lying around, and the company was not ready to store new categories of products.

 

When Amazon started selling kitchen goods, it sometimes happened that the knives without the protective packaging cut the conveyor belt. The situation was extremely dangerous.

11. In early 2002, Bezos introduced the concept of a “two pizza team”.

 

He suggested that workers should work in groups of less than ten people - that's how many people can be fed with two pizzas. According to Bezos, such groups should work autonomously, they should have clear goals and a formula for assessing success.

 

12. Dissatisfied customers can send a complaint to Bezos's personal mail, and he will forward it to the right employee with a single scary "?"

 

Whenever Amazon employees receive a letter from Bezos with a question mark, they react to it like a bomb. They usually have several hours to solve the problem and prepare a detailed explanation of why it arose. The explanatory note is checked by senior managers and then redirected to Bezos himself. In this way, Bezos shows customers that their complaints are constantly reviewed by the company.

 

13. Even before Google Street View came along, Amazon had Block View.

 

In 2004, Amazon launched the A9.com search engine. The team that worked on it also began to develop a project called Block View, which would display photographs of them from the street in response to a search query about stores and restaurants. For less than $ 100,000, Amazon sent its car photographers to twenty US cities to photograph the restaurants they needed. In 2006, Amazon abandoned the project, and in 2007 Google launched Street View.

 

14. Amazon employees fought stress with primal screams.

 

During the holidays, it is especially difficult for the employees of the logistics department. In the early 2000s, Jeff Wilkie, Chief Operating Officer for Amazon, allowed anyone who was able to achieve a big goal at work to close their eyes and yell at him with all their might on the phone.

 

Some of these primal screams nearly broke his speakers, Wilkie said.

 

15. Sometimes the "protests" of employees of Amazon fulfillment centers ended in rather funny ways.

 

The working conditions in these centers are notorious and sometimes their employees have tried to go on strike. One day, a worker decided to quit his job and sat astride a conveyor belt - and so he rode all the way out of the building.

 

But the funniest story happened in 2006 with a temporary employee of a Kansas center.

 

This employee came and went at the beginning of the shift, but no one saw him during working hours. Only a week later, it was discovered that the man had made himself a lair inside a pile of empty wooden boxes. Inside, he built a bed of Amazon products, reinforced the walls with pages torn from books, and even stole ordered food. When his lair was finally discovered, the employee was fired (not surprisingly).

16. The original Amazon Kindle e-reader was codenamed "Fiona".

 

This name Kindle got from the book by Neil Stevenson "The Diamond Age". It told of a distant future in which an engineer managed to steal a rare interactive book for his knowledge-hungry daughter, Fiona. The team behind the Kindle prototype was inspired by this fictional device.

 

The team asked Bezos to keep the name Fiona, but he ended up choosing the Kindle. This word is translated as "kindle the flame", and it really liked Bezos.

 

17. Jeff Bezos is said to have hired a leadership coach to shout less at his subordinates.

 

Bezos is known for being quite harsh or sarcastic about employees who tell him something unpleasant. Rumor has it that he has hired a special assistant to help him respond to the news in a less harsh manner.

 

During one meeting, Bezos chastised employees in his usual harsh manner. He said that they were all fools and that he gave them a week to figure out what they were doing. Then he took a couple of steps, froze as if he suddenly realized something and said: "But still, you did a good job."

 

18. Bezos Realized a childhood dream.

 

Bezos founded his own space tourism company Blue Origin in 2000, decades after telling teachers and friends as a child that he wanted to be a “space entrepreneur” when he grew up.

 

19. Space enthusiast.

 

Jeff is so passionate about NASA during the Mercury and Apollo missions that he equipped and financed an underwater expedition to locate and recover the debris of Apollo rockets.

 

20. Bezos doesn't use an alarm clock.

 

He does not use an alarm clock and tends to sleep a full eight hours a night. No overnight fires or early risings for this CEO.

21. A good father.

 

As a child, Jeff was adopted by his stepfather Miguel Bezos. Today, the entrepreneur has four children with his wife Mackenzie: three sons and a daughter, whom the couple adopted in China.

 

22. He has come a long way.

 

As a teenager, Bezos worked at McDonald's, making French fries. At the same time, he founded a small summer camp for primary school students DREAM Institute.

 

23. Demanding to women.

 

Jeff had high demands on candidates for the role of a life partner. In an interview with Wired, he said that he was looking for one that "will get him out of the trap of the Third World."

 

24. Altruist, but not strong.

 

Originally from Albuquerque, Jeff studied at Princeton. There he studied electrical engineering and computer science. In 2011, he donated $ 15 million to the university to build a center for the study of neurological disorders.

 

At the same time, being the richest man on earth, Bezos is ranked last in the ranking of the top 10 billionaire benefactors.

 

25. A big fan of reading.

 

Bezos's favorite book is The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro.

26. Customers come first.

 

If you have any complaints or suggestions, just email jeff@amazon.com. Receiving emails to this mail, Bezos forwards the question to the person in charge at the company, who then reports directly to the CEO on the progress of the issue. So the problem is under control.

 

27. Bezos made the first tables for himself and Amazon employees himself.

 

He could not afford expensive furniture at the beginning of the journey, so he put together tables for the first employees himself, using wooden doors instead of tabletops and boards for legs. Now these tables have become something of an artifact at the company - for over 20 years at Amazon, they have been using various variations of that historically simple design for the desktop.

 

The company even instituted the Door Desk Awards, which give creators "good ideas to offer consumers the lowest prices."

 

28. Bezos is not a fan of expensive cars.

 

Despite the fact that after the founding of Amazon, Bezos' business rapidly went uphill, he did not, like many, buy yachts and expensive cars for himself and for a long time remained faithful to his 1987 Chevrolet Blazer, which at first personally delivered deliveries. In 1997, when the company went public, he finally swapped out his old car for the new Honda Accord.

 

29. Bezos once looked into the eyes of death.

 

In 2003, Jeff Bezos practically looked death in the eye. He was looking for land to build a test site for Blue Origin when his helicopter crashed on a tour of Texas. The Amazon CEO received a number of minor injuries and recovered quickly, but after that he did not fly helicopters for a long time.

 

“Nothing special occurred to me. I was only thinking about what a stupid way to die, ”Bezos told Fast Company in 2004.

 

It didn't become some kind of life-defining experience for me. I’m afraid I’ve learned a rather mundane lesson: Avoid helicopters whenever possible! They are not as reliable as air transport with wings. "

 

30. Bezos is an Early Investor in Google.

 

Less than five years after founding Amazon, Bezos demonstrated his investment flair by investing $ 1 million in Google in the late 90s. Then it was a serious risk, which by now has paid off handsomely.

Now the Euro can play ...

... even those who did not get into the final application of

8.png

Previously, the Euro application could fit 23 players, but the modern tournament requires modern solutions. UEFA has prepared and released some covid additions to the regulations ahead of the tournament. You probably know that the rosters have been expanded to 26, so that the teams have more room to maneuver. But this is not the only measure. Player rosters may change before the tournament, and even during.

 

For example, in case of injury or serious illness, a player from the application can be replaced with another one before the starting match of the team for Euro, and goalkeepers can be changed after the first game.

 

In this case, any additional applications must be agreed, the diagnosis of the excluded player must be confirmed by the UEFA medical specialist. The number of such substitutions is not limited, the main thing is to fit into the deadline (for field players - before the start of the tournament). The regulations clearly state: the national team must go to the match if it has at least 13 players, including one goalkeeper. If 13 is not recruited, then you can even call those who are not included in the application 26.

A few days before the tournament, covid problems appear. So far, Spain is suffering the most. Sergi Busquets passed a positive test and disrupted the friendly match - since all the other players were at risk, they had to release the youth team for the game with Lithuania. And on the morning of June 9, it turned out that the defender Diego Llorente was also infected.



As a result, the coaches create a "plan B" - at the same time they assemble a squad of 17 players (there is Kep, but no Nacho, Saul and Aspas). All of them will come to the national team, but they will live in a "parallel bubble" without contact with the main team. In which case, any of them will be added.

 

A part-time Youtube blogger, a failed mortgage consultant ...

... and 7 more interesting facts about Euro stars

In the summer of 2012, English defender Tyrone Mingsretirement was considered at age 19. The fact is that it was problematic for him to combine training with the work of a bartender and a mortgage consultant, but he still continued to perform. After 7 years, he achieved a call-up to the England national team.

 

Spain's left-back, Jordi Alba, only got a driver's license at 31 and started using his car. Before that, the Spaniard came to trainings by taxi or with the help of relatives and friends.

 

Dutchman Donnie van de Beck has been dating the daughter of the legendary Dennis Begkamp for several years, and he took the 34th number in Manchester United in honor of Ajax footballer Abelha, who had been in a coma for almost three years.

 

Until the age of 14, Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea was not a goalkeeper at all. He generally played mini-football, where he played the role of a forward. In those days, he pumped the game with his feet, which helps him in big football. He parried a lot of punches thanks to futsal skills.

 

In July 2020, the English “Birmingham” assigned the 22nd number for 17-year-old Jude Bellingham. Thus, the club thanked the talented guy for 10 years in the team. Bellingham became Birmingham's most expensive transfer - it was sold to Borussia Dortmund for € 25 million.

 

In 2012, Italian Federico Bernardeschi refused to star in a reality show about the life of promising Fiorentina players. They persuaded him for a long time, hinting that the captain should take part in the picture and that this would raise his recognition. “I just wanted to play football, I didn't think about the rest,” Federico recalled.

 

Black Spaniard Adam Traore has been famous for speed since a young age. To prevent the winger from being grabbed by the arms, the Wolverhampton coaching staff came up with the idea of ​​smearing them with baby oil. And it helped! Now the reactive footballer cannot be kept up, and he began to receive much fewer injuries due to fouls.

 

The star of the Netherlands national team Memphis Depay, in addition to football, is engaged in music. More than 500 thousand people have subscribed to his YouTube channel. The total number of video views has already exceeded 36 million.

English defender Bukayo Saka spent his childhood on the street. To quickly send his son home, the father and brother had to lose his "battle" in the garden. Also, the future Arsenal player was famous for his excellent academic performance. His favorite subjects were business, mathematics and English. Saka passed all exams with good or excellent marks.

 

At a young age, Belgian Napoli star Dries Mertens nearly became a physical training teacher when he was expelled from Anderlecht due to his modest physical abilities. The player was saved by the coach of the youth team of Ghent, who took Mertens to the club of the third Belgian division.

 

Giorginio Wijnaldum is a cousin of Royston Drenthe, who in 2013 played 6 matches for Alania Vladikavkaz. As a child, the midfielder did not like football and was fond of acrobatics. Everything changed when his grandmother sent Giorginio to the Rotterdam Sparta school and accompanied him to all training sessions.

 

Belgian defender Tom Meunier, in his youth, combined the game in the third Belgian league with work at the factory. Tom is also very fond of painting, and in 2015 he developed a design for sun awnings for the American company Winsol.

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.
