World Tourism Day

World Tourism Day (WTD) is held annually on 27 September. Its purpose is to foster awareness among the international community of the importance of tourism. This date was chosen as on that day in 1970, the Statutes of the UNWTO were adopted. The adoption of these Statutes is considered a milestone in global tourism.

Happy Birthday Google

Although every one is familiar with google doodles. Most of us doesn’t know that google has its own birthday. Yes, today is “Google’s” birthday (For this year 😛 )

googles-18th-birthday-5661535679545344-hp

As per google results, not even google seems to really know when was it formed. Since 2006, it has celebrated its birthday on September 27, but the year before that, had it as September 26. In 2004, its 6th birthday Doodle went online on September 7 and in the year before that, it was September 8. Internet sources says it was registered Google.com on 15 September 1997 and filed for incorporation on 4 September 1998.

Few Facts:

What is Google? The term google itself is a creative spelling of googol, a number equal to 10 to the 100th power, or more colloquially, an unfathomable number. Googol was coined in the 1930s and is attributed to the nine-year-old nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner.

Google is Generous. They gives very generous payouts to the husbands and wives of people who die while working for them. They’ll receive 50 per cent of their salary for the next decade. And their children receive a payout until they’re grown up, too.

Google searching. One Google search uses more computing power than it took to send the Apollo 11 astronauts to the moon. Searching Google is easy and takes just milliseconds. But the computing and networking power required to look through almost all of the known internet is huge – far more huge than the relatively minor amount of code and computing that it took to put humans on the moon.

Google once went down for five minutes, and took 40 per cent of web traffic with it. On 19 August, 2013, Google stopped working for five minutes. And it took much of the internet with it. While other companies have looked to challenge Google’s dominance in search, it still represents a huge part of the web. Nowadays, such an outage would be unlikely to cause such a problem – other sites, mostly Facebook, have challenged Google’s dominance as the central linking place of the world. But Google still accounts for a huge part of everything anyone finds or looks at on the internet

Google hires goats. Google’s headquarters are big, and lots of it is green. So much of it is grass that it would need a lot of lawnmowers – but Google has a novel way around that. Instead of gas-powered machines, Google hires a load of goats to clear the fields around its campus. They visit for about a week at a time, and about 200 of them come to much up the Google grass. The goats don’t guzzle gas, pollute the air or make as much noise. And they have the advantage of being “a lot cuter to watch than law mowers”, Google’s employees have noted.

Google uses dogs too. Indeed, one dog – the first ever – has the title of Top Dog. Yoshka is the only dog to be credited in Google’s official history – from when he joined alongside owner (and senior vice president of operations) Urs Hölzle early on in the company’s life in 1999. Yoshka even wrote a blog post on Google’s site, presumably dictating it – noting that there were now many other dogs, some much smaller than himself, but that all of them were welcome.

Google’s logo wasn’t in the middle until 2001. The simplicity of the Google homepage belies the fact that it is one of the most viewed things in the history of the world. So even the tiniest changes are significant – and some very not tiny changes were made in the site’s early development. For instance, in the first few years the site was around, its logo was aligned slightly to the left. That came to an end in 2001, when Google finally moved it into the middle.
