Today in History: Fingerprint evidence used to solve murder case for the first time in 1905

Troxler, 1989

Today in History: Fingerprint evidence used to solve murder case for the first time in 1905
The neighbors of Thomas and Ann Farrow, shopkeepers in South London, discover their badly bludgeoned bodies in their home. Thomas was already dead, but Ann was still breathing. She died four days later without ever having regained consciousness. The brutal crime was solved using the newly developed fingerprinting technique. Only three years earlier, the first English court had admitted fingerprint evidence in a petty theft case. The Farrow case was the first time that the cutting-edge technology was used in a high-profile murder case.

Today is National Learn About Butterflies Day

Butterfly by Sayer, 1952

Today is National Learn About Butterflies Day

Observed annually, March 14th is National Learn About Butterflies Day. Spring and summer are just right around the corner, so it is a good time to take a few minutes and learn something new about butterflies and appreciate their beauty. Butterflies need our help to survive as they rely on flowers and other natural sources for survival. We can help them by planting more flowers. Did you know there are more than 20,000 types of butterflies worldwide?

Their wing spans can range from 1/2 inch to 11 inches. In their adult stage, butterflies can live from a week to nearly a year, depending on the species. Many butterflies migrate over long distances. Particularly famous migrations are those of the Monarch butterfly from Mexico to the northern USA and southern Canada, a distance of about 2500 to 3000 miles.

Today is National Dentist’s Day

Kolynos Toothpaste, 1948

Today is National Dentist’s Day
Observed annually on March 6, it is time to say “Thank You” to your dentist. Most of us would rather be someplace else than sitting in a dental chair. However, when our checkup is done, our teeth are cleaned, the cavities are filled, the broken tooth is fixed, or a toothache is gone, we appreciate what the dentist has done for us. Keep brushing those teeth …

Today in History: World Premiere of #SwanLake in 1877

Swan Lake, 1965

Today in History: World Premiere of #SwanLake in 1877

“Swan Lake” was Peter I. Tchaikovsky’s (1840-1893) first ballet composition. Apart from “Sleeping Beauty” (1890) and “The Nutcracker” (1892), it is considered today as perhaps the most important classical ballet. However, its first performance in Moscow in 1877 was met with harsh criticism by audiences and critics alike. Tchaikovsky was very disappointed by the failure of his first ballet and tried to find the cause in his music. For years, he intended to re-edit his work, but he never did. After Tchaikovsky’s death, Marius Petipa and Riccardo Driggo drastically reworked the ballet’s choreography. On February 17, 1894, the revised ballet premiered in St. Petersburg and was a huge success. Today, “Swan Lake” is considered to be Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece.

Today is Polar Bear Swim Day

Today is Polar Bear Swim Day

Since 1920, a group of hardy swimmers has celebrated New Year’s Day by plunging into the frigid waters of Vancouver’s English Bay. As crazy as it sounds, the custom has spread to the United States, where chapters of the American Polar Bear Club have established themselves in a number of states known for their cold winter weather. In Sheboygan, Wisconsin, more than 300 daring swimmers—many of them in costume—brave the ice floes of Lake Michigan to take their New Year’s Day swim. About 3,000 to 4,000 spectators stay bundled up on the beach and watch. The Sheboygan event has gradually expanded into a day-long festival, with a brat-fry, a costume contest, and live entertainment. (Source: thefreedictionary.com)
