On November 11, 1919, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson stated, “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”
To most Americans, we know this day as Veterans Day. It’s a time to remember the military veterans who have served our country and thank those who are currently serving.
Have you seen more men with moustaches than usual over the past week?
Every November, men are challenged to change their physical appearance by growing a “mo” (slang for moustache) for 30 days to support men’s health.
The idea of Movember was inspired in 2003 when a few guys from Melbourne, Australia, decided to bring the moustache back and create awareness around men’s health. No money was raised that year however in 2004 the campaign evolved, raising over $55,000 for the Prostate Cancer of Australia.
The following post was contributed by Frank, one of our Cisco ūmi beta users.
It was one thing to hear about my niece Sarah’s engagement…..it was quite another thing to see it live from Greenville, South Carolina -- piped right into our family room in Saratoga, California.
With ūmi, I was able to see details like the glitter of Sarah’s shiny ring and how my niece -- who just yesterday was joining “Brownies” -- was beaming with a distinct glow.
I learned that only hi-def “Cisco ūmi” can broadcast and show a sense of “radiance” pouring from Sarah as she talked about the engagement to Noel.
Maybe now we can call these “ūmi-moments”?
