          1. American Business Women’s Day —promoting the contributions of women who have founded and run businesses in this country; just another reason why this country which has all its citizens in the game as opposed to the jihadists who exclude half the population will prevail.   
           2. World Car Free Day—promoting the use of alternative forms of transportation like walking, bikes and buses as a means to cut down on carbon emissions and put more money in a consumer’s pocket.
           3. 1987 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1987 on a run of two weeks in that position Didn’t We Almost Have It All by Whitney Houston.  Here is a link to Whitney Houston performing Didn’t We Almost Had It All: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_4PlM85NJo
           4.  National Ice Cream Cone Day—celebrating the last official day of summer with a tasty treat that all of us enjoy.
           5.  Like Father Like Daughter Day—celebrating the birthday on this day in 1956 of Debbie Boone, great pop singer and daughter of Pat Boone.
On this day in:                                           
             a. 1888 the first issue of the National Geographic Magazine was published.
           b. 1896 Queen Victoria passed her grandfather King George III as the longest serving British monarch; her record was just surpassed by Queen Elizabeth II who is still serving today to the dismay of her son who may never become king.     
            c. 1957 the tyrant “Papa Doc” Duvalier was elected president of Haiti to the ultimate dismay of some 30,000 Haitians murdered on his orders.
            d. 1993 a barge struck a railroad bridge in Mississippi leading to a derailment of the Sunset Limited and the death of 47 passengers and sadly for trainophiles the termination of service from New Orleans to Orlando, Florida.
            e. 2013 in yet another display of barbarism by radical Islamists, a suicide bomber killed at least worshippers at a church at Peshawar, Pakistan. 
Reflections on women in business from a female CEO:”Walt Disney told his crew to ‘build the castle first’ when constructing Disney World, knowing that vision would continue to serve as motivation throughout the project. Oftentimes when people fail to achieve what they want in life, it’s because their vision isn’t strong enough.” – Gail Blanke, President and CEO, Lifedesigns
