Education and Information
WORLD STANDARDS DAY is all about uniformity. ISO (International Standards Organization) is a certification that any business who is involved with the manufacturing, buying and selling of goods should strive to attain and maintain. It not only sets the standards for everyone to follow but guarantees that the same product you buy from different countries should be of the same quality. In today’s global market – it’s just good business.
NATIONAL RYAN DAY and NATIONAL VERONICA DAY celebrate anyone with those names. Veronica means “woman who delivers triumph”. The story goes that a cloth used to caringly wipe the face of Jesus as he was on his way to be crucified was mysteriously imprinted with his image. The name of the woman who wiped his face was Veronica and she is the patron saint of photographers. Ryan comes from the Gaelic term for “little king” and tends to belong to some pretty good guys.
