World Origami Days
Oct 24–Nov 11. Let’s get the world to fold! Celebrate origami by spreading the joy of paperfolding during World Origami Days, a 2½-week celebration of the international community of origami. Make origami as visible as possible: teach a class, fold on the bus, give your friends origami, exhibit your models. The possibilities are limitless, just as with origami itself. Annually, Oct 24–Nov 11

Mr. Know it All (useless info of the day)
In 1865, Frederik Idestam founded a wood-pulp mill in southern Finland, naming it Nokia. It rapidly gained worldwide recognition, attracting a large number of workforce and the town Nokia was born. In 1898, the Finnish Rubber Works company opened in Nokia, taking on the town name in the 1920s. After WWII, the rubber company took a majority shareholding in the Finnish Cable Work. In 1967, the companies consolidated to become the Nokia Group. The recession of the 1990s led the group to focus on the mobile phone market.
