Hi,

#8605. When is the 'the International Day of Democracy' observed? (In 2007 the United Nations General Assembly resolved to observe this day as the International Day of Democracy—with the purpose of promoting and upholding the principles of democracy—and invited all member states and organizations to commemorate the day in an appropriate manner that contributes to raising public awareness.

…while democracies share common features, there is no single model of democracy and that democracy does not belong to any country or region... …democracy is a universal value based on the freely-expressed will of people to determine their own political, economic, social and cultural systems, and their full participation in all aspects of life.)

#8606. When is the 'International Day of Peace' observed? (The International Day of Peace, also officially known as World Peace Day, is a United Nations-sanctioned holiday observed annually on this day. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access. The day was first celebrated in 1981 and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and people.

To inaugurate the day, the United Nations Peace Bell is rung at UN Headquarters (in New York City). The bell is cast from coins donated by children from all continents except Africa, and was a gift from the United Nations Association of Japan, as "a reminder of the human cost of war"; the inscription on its side reads, "Long live absolute world peace".)

Hi,

#8607. When is the 'International Translation Day' observed? (International Translation Day is an international day recognising translation professionals. It is on this day, which is the day of the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator who is considered the patron saint of translators.)

#8608. When is the 'International Day of Older Persons' observed? (On December 14, 1990 the United Nations General Assembly voted to establish this day as the International Day of Older People as recorded in Resolution 45/106. The holiday was observed for the first time in 1991.

The holiday is celebrated by raising awareness about issues affecting the elderly, such as senescence and elder abuse. It is also a day to appreciate the contributions that older people make to society.

This holiday is similar to National Grandparents Day in the United States and Canada as well as Double Ninth Festival in China and Respect for the Aged Day in Japan. The observance is a focus of ageing organizations and the United Nations Programme on Ageing.)

Re: General Quiz

Hi,

#8621. Who is the author of 'Ape and Essence'? (a novel by the author, published by Chatto & Windus in the UK and Harper & Brothers in the US. It is set in a dystopia, as is 'Brave New World', his more famous work. It is largely a satire of the rise of large-scale warfare and warmongering in the 20th century, and presents a pessimistic view of the politics of mutually assured destruction. The book makes extensive use of surreal imagery, depicting humans as apes who, as a whole, will inevitably kill themselves.)

#8622. Who is the author of 'As You Like It'? ('As You Like It' is a pastoral comedy believed to have been written in 1599 and first published in the First Folio in 1623. The play's first performance is uncertain, though a performance at Wilton House in 1603 has been suggested as a possibility.)
