what-is-the-history-of-black-friday-15-fun-and-interesting-facts-you-should-know-bemorepanda

This is a huge traditional sale, a fabulous time when all self-respecting stores are competing to see who has more discounts. Black Friday began in the USA as a great excuse to buy gifts before the Christmas holidays. This is the first Friday after Thanksgiving and falls between November 23rd and 30th. At this time there were always sales, and in the 60s the term "Black Friday" itself appeared.

 

Over time, the wave was picked up by the whole world: the more competition, the more discounts that attract even more people. So this snowball is rolling, causing a crazy stir. Someone needs gifts, someone has been waiting the whole year for the opportunity to buy an expensive thing, and someone enterprisingly buys everything and then sells it at auctions at a higher price.

People wait patiently for Black Friday for months, and then all at once pile on stores and grab goods in an hour. And if the Internet sites at this time simply hang on the number of people, then in real shopping centers madness, crush, assault and other types of simple human fun are happening. Bemorepanda prepared some interesting facts about Black Friday for you:

 

1. In 2020, Black Friday falls on November 29th, which marks the beginning of the biggest sale of the year worldwide. Some stores prefer to open early, and some even agree to work around the clock.

 

2. Aliexpress is perhaps the most popular store during the promotion days, discounts up to 70% on already cheap goods attract crowds of buyers.

 

3. eBay this year promises discounts of up to 50%, you can buy anything on sale: from a food processor to sports equipment, the main thing is to pay attention to the delivery terms.

 

4. For the first time this term sounded on September 24, 1869 during a panic in the US stock market: then the gold rate collapsed by 30%, ruining many small businesses.

 

5. In the fifties of the XX century, severe traffic jams on the roads of Philadelphia, which began after Thanksgiving Day, were dubbed Black Friday - the traffic police could not cope with the traffic collapse.

 

 

6. Massive sales after Thanksgiving have been (and continue to be) a hefty profit.

 

7. In America, sales had an additional meaning: sellers not only got rid of surplus goods in store for Thanksgiving, but also attracted those who wanted to shop early for the Christmas holidays.

 

8. Many sellers sin by raising prices in early to mid-November in order to effectively lower them on the day of the sale (and achieve those same ninety percent discounts). The total discount is obtained either much less than the declared one, or even absent altogether.

 

9.In 2018, according to the estimates of the National Retail Federation of the United States, on Black Friday itself, Americans made $ 6.2 billion (23.6% more than in 2017), and just over the weekend 165 million people were shopping.

 

10. Despite the proliferation and increase of online shopping, many shoppers still prefer physical stores, and more than half of those who were flattered by last year's sales were shopping both in stores and online.

 

 

11. The fashion industry is still more likely to be in the rearguard of Black Friday in terms of the number of buyers and, of course, the amount of the check. For example, consumers are projected to spend, on average, just over $ 250 each on clothing and footwear (by comparison, the average furniture bill is likely to be over $ 700).

 

12. True, while brands like H&M, Topshop and Mango offer discounts on almost the entire assortment, then for Farfetch and Net-a-Porter Black Friday becomes a reason to sell off the rest: special discounts apply only to the Sale department.

 

13. In recent years, Amazon, Argos, Boots, Currys, Debenhams, Halfords, House of Fraser, John Lewis, Littlewoods, Morrisons, Tesco and Very have been among the most active members with the best discounts.

 

14. Which states that 87% of Black Friday special pricing items can be purchased for the same price or even lower at other times of the year.

 

15.When shopping, please note the explanation for the special offer. Sometimes stores simply indicate the price "was-now", where the product was sold at the old price almost six months ago, but not yesterday.

 

On the one hand, Black Friday really looks like a thoughtless celebration of consumerism - and therefore aggravates environmental problems, for which the fashion industry is also responsible. On the other hand, it is possible to preserve sanity even during total stunning sales. Glossy magazines also call for this - with materials in the spirit of "What timeless things to buy at a discount" or "How to assemble a basic wardrobe for a sale." “Trends are cool,” admits Who What Wear, but warns that they won't work in a wardrobe unless you have a solid base to pair them. "And it doesn't have to be expensive."

 

There is nothing wrong with discounts in and of themselves, and even more, it is a great opportunity for many buyers to "jump" into a more expensive and high-quality clothing segment and choose durable items made from sustainable materials and in compliance with the principles of sustainable development. You can deliberately support brands that refuse discounts in favor of charitable initiatives. Finally, a big sale could be a good non-sale solution.

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.

50-facts-distributed-by-weird-facts-that-will-surely-teach-you-new-things

Each new year represents a new beginning. Around the night between the years, we think about what we want the new year to bring, we make wishes, we make plans and we respect different superstitions in order to have luck in the beginning year. It is as common as it is convenient to believe that the luck of the new year is primarily due to fate, and thus we tend to minimize our own responsibility and the importance of our contribution to our own well-being.


But what if, at the turn of the year, we made a list of things we want to learn next year? Maybe we want to learn a foreign language, maybe we want to try a new sport, maybe we want to learn a new skill, use a new device, get a driver's license or maybe we want to learn to paint. We all have such desires, but we seldom fulfill them.


Bemorepanda has collected 50 interesting facts with which you can start the new year by learning new things. In 2022 we must give priority to knowledge and well-being.


1.Learning law for humanity


2.Equal rights


3.Single dad


4.Dolly Parton


Learning is necessary up to a point. When we are little, we always learn things about the reality around us that help us survive and adapt. Then we go to school, where we are forced to learn various subjects, some of which we like, some less. Then we go to college, where we specialize in one field. We go to work, where we learn to do our job. After a while, however, learning is no longer compulsory, it becomes optional. Nothing presses us anymore, the only motivation is given by our desire to know things. And this is the moment when the excuses appear: I don't feel like it now, I want to relax, I've learned enough, I'm too old to learn anymore, etc.


These excuses have long-term negative consequences. The brain, like any other muscle, atrophies in the absence of exercise. For this reason, thinking becomes rigid and we tend to suffer from functional fixation. In other words, we are used to doing things the same way all the time, we feel uncomfortable when we are faced with a new situation and we lose the ability to think "outside the box" and find creative solutions to the problems we face. The more time we spend learning nothing new, the more useless it seems to us to try.


5.The 9 Nanas


6.Money doesn’t grow on tree


7.Bury Bentley


8.Syndrome K


First of all, if our brain is always trained to learn new things, it will be easier for us to learn skills, because we will be able to relate them to what we already know. And we will know more and more. This will allow us to deal with more and more situations. Although we may not see the immediate benefit of learning a certain thing in the long run, we will certainly feel the benefits.


By always learning, we keep our spirit young and will process information very quickly, because we will have a complex system in which to integrate it. Last but not least, we will have an increased sense of self-efficacy, which will help us to feel good about ourselves, to know what we are capable of and to be confident that we can succeed in what we set out to do.


9.Dale Schroeder


10.Dream come true


11.Breakfast with dads


12.Steve Buscemi


13.Surgeons


14.No charges


15.Joyce Diane


16.Doodlebug


17.Alabama husband


18.Kansas


19.Mr. Rogers


20.Sleeping family


21.Blood donations


22.Anais Bordier


23.Turtles


24.Billy Ray


25.Boston College


26.Billy Joel


27.Marshall


28.Preparing dinner


29.Don’t care


30.Anthony Borges


31.Elmer Alvarez

top-50-funny-football-memes-and-jokes-to-share-with-your-mates-bemorepanda

Football is one of the most popular sports - the "king sport," which provokes great passion and emotions among the supporters.

 

Top football memes

 

FIFA (International Football Federation) statistics show that more than 270 million people worldwide, from more than 200 countries, especially in Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa, play regular football: professionals or amateurs, men, and women who love this sport.

 

1. Two, please

 

2. He’s just a child

 

3. A free kick

 

Read here 50 fascinating facts about the UEFA Champions League that you need to know.

 

Football's (official) birth in Europe dates back to the 19th century, 1863, when rugby football split into rugby and football in England, with the latter establishing stringent rules. Clear. However, the distant origin of football is in ancient China, around the third century BC, in a game called "cuju," which was practiced as a kind of training for soldiers. They had to control the ball (which was filled with animal hair) with their foot, chest, calves, and shoulders.

 

The oldest football club, recognized internationally, was established in England in 1857 - FC Sheffield - still operating today, but at the amateur level. Initially, as there were no other clubs, the matches were played between FC Sheffield members; the criteria according to which the teams were formed were: married versus unmarried, unemployed versus employees, etc. In 1860, when a second club was set up in the same city - FC Hallam - the first club match was held every year.

 

The first football league was also created in England in 1888 by the president of the Aston Villa club in Birmingham and consisted of 12 teams.

 

 

4. Hear me out

 

5. Coming through

 

6. Good meme

 

The first international football match took place in 1872, between England and Scotland, in Glasgow and ended 0 - 0. The players wore "knickerbockers" (shorts) and hats or caps, this clothing detail (hat/hat) being preserved until the beginning of the twentieth century.

 

At the first club matches, the balls were not spherical. It was customary to inflate a pig's bladder, tie it at both ends, and wrap it in leather, giving it an oval shape. Also, the balls were lighter at first (340 - 425 grams), but in 1937, increasing to 396 - 453 grams. The first modern soccer ball was made in 1870, with an elastic rubber insert in a leather cover, an invention of Richard Lindon, who is said to have revolutionized the game of football with his idea.

 

The rules of the football game, established in 1863 at the time of its establishment, did not mention, until 1875, the existence of a crossbar for the goal, only the vertical bars. Therefore, to score a dream, it was enough for the ball to pass between the vertical bars, regardless of height.

 

The old tactics of the game were very similar to those of rugby today - the teams had strong attackers and, when offside, they attacked in groups to take the ball to the opponent's goal.

 

7. Tom and Jerry

 

8. Babbage

 

9. Off the palette

 

The fouls and the arbitrators did not appear in the initial regulations, considering they do not commit intentional "mistakes." Various events on the field could be challenged in discussions with the captains and then with the players. The referees first appeared in the area in 1891.

 

The penalty kick appeared in football only in the twentieth century and could be executed from a line 11 meters from the goal and parallel to it. The goalkeeper could approach up to 5.5 meters of the executor.

 

Until about 1912, goalkeepers could use their hands in play on their entire half of the field, and the goalie's suit could only be blue, white, or orange/yellow.

 

FIFA Chief Referee Ken Aston inspired the yellow and red cards at a traffic light on Kensington High Street in London during a walk as he thought of ways to mark warnings and exclusions in the game. 

 

At first, the breaks between innings did not have a pre-determined duration. The break lasted as long as the players could wash, change equipment, have a snack, and drink tea before the second half.

 

10. I Just lost

 

11. Dear diary

 

12. OMG, a ball

 

The fastest goal in football history was scored in the second 2.8, by the Uruguayan Ricardo Olivera, in 1998.

 

Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo holds the most records - the most goals scored by a footballer in the Champions League in a season (17), the most FIFA World Player trophies (3), the first Portuguese footballer to win the Golden Ball five times, and the second, after Messi, who won the "Golden Ice" three times, etc.

 

In football, most consider that the greatest footballer is the Argentine Maradona, sharing with the Brazilian Pele the title of "Player of the Century" award by FIFA.

Most own goals in a match belong to Stade Olympique de L’Emyrne, Madagascar, which, in 2006, in the game against A.S. In addition, he scored 149 own goals.

 

The opening match of the famous Wembley Stadium in London (where the EURO 2020 UEFA final will also take place), which took place in 1923, was attended by 190,000 spectators.

 

The highest number of spectators present at a football match was recorded in 1950, during the final of the World Cup in Brazil, the game being played between the national teams of Brazil and Uruguay, in the Maracana stadium. One hundred ninety-nine thousand eight hundred fifty-four spectators were about to see this match.

 

13. They going to kiss

 

14. Spot the ball

 

15. Cool handbag

The game rules were outlined in the mid-19th century to standardize the practices of a wide variety of similar games played in UK schools. Cambridge rules, identical to those of today, were created at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1848, at a meeting of representatives of several colleges: Eton College, Harrow School, Rugby School, Winchester College, and Shrewsbury School. But they were far from universal rules. In the 1850s, many clubs were formed, independent of schools or universities, that played various forms of football. Many used their own rules, the best example being Sheffield F.C. (former Harrow School students). It was founded in 1857, and its rules led to the formation of the Sheffield & Hallamshire Football Federation in 1867. In 1862, John Charles Thring of Uppingham School created another commonly used set of rules.

 

These efforts led to the founding of the Football Federation (FA) in 1863, which first met on October 26, 1863, at Freemason's Tavern in Great Queen Street, London. The only school that was represented at this meeting was Charterhouse School. Freemason’s Tavern was the meeting place for the Federation for another five meetings, between October and December. During this time, the first comprehensive set of rules was born. At the last meeting, the first treasurer of the FA, who was the Blackheath representative, withdrew his club from the FA, due to the exclusion from the rules, at the previous meeting, two basic rules: the first was the one that allowed running with the ball in his hands and the second, the possibility of stopping the opponent by hitting him in the "whistle, by shooting, or by holding. Other English rugby clubs followed suit and did not join the FA. But in 1871, they formed the Rugby Football Union. The remaining 11 clubs in the FA, led by Ebenezer Cobb Morley, have ratified the first 14 rules of the game. Despite this, the Sheffield club continued to play by its own rules until the 1870s.

 

Today the rules of the game are set by the International Football Association Board (IFAB). It was founded in 1886 after a meeting of the English Football Federation, the Scottish Football Federation, the Welsh Football Federation, and the Irish Football Federation in Manchester.

 

In 1888, Aston Villa club president William McGregor formed the first football league in England. The original format contained 12 teams from central and northern England.

 

The FIFA International Football Federation was formed in Paris in 1904, and its representatives decided to adopt the rules created by IFAB. The growing popularity of the game led to the union of the representatives of the two federations (FIFA and IFAB). Today, their leadership consists of 4 FIFA representatives and 1 representative from each British federation.

Football is popular with both children and adults.
