April 27, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Administrative Professionals' Day

    Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For April 27, 2016 Unfortunately still 268 days to go in President Obama’s   pathetic lame duck term; the fat lady sang last night on the Red side as Trump won in a landslide in all five states and sang on the Blue side with less volume as HRC won four out of five states; Trump used a teleprompter this morning to deliver a major foreign policy address which outlined his goals in a coherent and presidential fashion, including telling ISIS their days are numbered though he would not tell them when or how which is basic military science 101 and rightfully slammed Obama and Clinton for their foreign policy disasters. As always, I hope  you enjoy today’s holidays and observances,  a music link to Phil Collins, factoids of interest, a  relevant quote from Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert,  while looking forward to a large serving of prime rib for lunch or dinner, blessed with a positive attitude and  secure in  the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like birthdays, weddings, or  anniversaries, you know that the Alaskanpoet can provide you with a unique customized poem  at a great price  tailored to the event and the recipient. You need only contact me for details.
1. National Administrative Professionals’ Day—celebrating the contributions to the work force and reduction in an executive’s stress level of administrative professionals. 
2. Tell a Story Day—here is a great way to get children from playing video games or watching TV; tell them a story from memory or a book or to further the appetite for reading, take them to a library that has story telling hours.                                      
3. 1984 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1984 on a run of only three weeks in that position Against All Odds by Phil Collins. Here is a link to Phil Collins performing Against All Odds:
4. National Prime Rib Day—celebrating one of the world’s greatest ways to enjoy beef, especially with horseradish at Steven’s Steak House in the city of Commerce, California.
5. ... .- -- ..- . .-.. / -- --- .-. ... . / -... .. .-. - .... -.. .- -.--celebrating the birthday on this day in 1791 of the inventor of the single wire telegraph system and, as the title for this gives it away, the Morse Code—Samuel Morse. The Morse Code combined with radio telegraphy was absolutely critical in World War II and its fast moving armies but now is rarely used except by Ham Radio enthusiasts.  
On this day in:
a. 711 Moors under the command of Tarig ibn Ziyad land at Gibraltar to begin the Islamic conquest of the Iberian Peninsula which the Moors would rule until January 2, 1492 when Spanish forces united by the marriage of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella forced the Moors to surrender Grenada. One could only imagine the chaos Europe would be facing today with the rise of radical Islam if the Moors still occupied Spain.                                  b. 1861 President Abraham Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus.
c. 1936 the United Auto Workers left the American Federation of Labor.                                                                                            
d. 1974 ten thousand marched on the White House calling for the impeachment of Richard Nixon which he would have been and almost with certainty convicted by the Senate had he not later resigned as President of the United States on August 9, 1974.
e. 2006 construction began on the Freedom Tower (later renamed One World Trade Center) and was completed in July of 2013.       
 Reflections on administrative professionals on this Administrative Professions’ Day: “Someday, people who know how to use computers will rule over those who don’t. And there will be a special name for them – Secretaries.”  Scott Adamsnoted cartoonist and creator of Dilbert. How true his observation is.
