Is there like an official Beatles' day of some sort? Regardless, I'll post the idea in the Liza's article. Thanks again.

If they decide on it, I'm sure the creative group will figure something out.

Thank again!

Remembrance Day?
by Zouch / February 18, 2017 6:18 AM PST

Hi Lee,
in the UK, Remembrance Day remembers the ultimate sacrifice so many of our soldiers, sailors and airmen made in the two world wars to win the freedom we take for granted. Two minutes silence are observed on the 11th hour of the 11th day to mark the armistice of the First World War, later amended to include the Second World War and subsequent conflicts. Wreaths (a possible surround for your logo) are laid on the nearest Sunday.

Lest we forget.

That should, of course, have read "The 11th hour of the 11th Day of the 11th month", i.e 11 am, 11th November. Apologies for the slip

Thank you Zouch, UK Remembrance Day is like our Memorial Day

In reply to: Remembrance Day?

It's a day of celebration for all the servicemen who died serving our country. I like the two minutes of silence observation during the 11th hour of the 11th Day of the 11th month. I'm curious, during those two minutes, is it dead silent where ever you are in the UK? I assume traffic doesn't sudden come to a halt, but do people in the streets simply stop what they are doing during that time frame?

A lot of people stop in the streets, it's observed at sports fixtures and in work places. Always a great turnout for it in my small town.

I love this tribute! It's two minutes where almost the entire country can share the same thought all at once. Very powerful!

earlier I was mooching the web and came across "Stolen valour", which made me angry.

Yes, Indeed
by Zouch / February 23, 2017 10:37 PM PST

Hi Lee,
yes, as Dafydd says, a large proportion of the country does indeed, stop and stand in silence for 2 minutes. When I was in the UK, I worked for some time in Solihull, a suburb on the south west of Birmingham. On remembrance Day, at 11:00, the British Legion (a former servicemen's organization, like the Returned Servicemen's League in Australia and possibly the VA in the USA) located a couple of miles from our office, would fire a maroon (signal cannon) and most of Solihull would stop what they were doing until the second maroon was fired 2 minutes later. My office window looked out over a small road T-junction and some of the cars approaching the junction would also stop for the two minutes.

A suitable CNET logo enhancement would be the logo surrounded by a wreath of red poppies. Such wreaths are laid at memorials across the country and by H.M. Queen Elizabeth and other dignitaries at the Cenotaph in London on Remembrance Sunday (the nearest to the 11th).

Here in Australia, Anzac Day in April is similarly revered on the anniversary of the Galipoli landings in 1915.

It's a big big world. What I'd like to see
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / February 23, 2017 4:40 PM PST

Is the Earth Day in that logo, then you can move to renewable energy systems, then we have 196 countries in the world.

Technology has made this world a smaller place. Maybe a lot of work to create a World Tour of Tech and articles to match but it would be quite the series.

Just an idea

After being involved in This Conversation  , I think when someone clicks on the Logo , an explanation / definition should be offered .

probably a hover over text like how Google does it on their home page like today for St Patrick's day. When you hover over the image it reads "St. Patrick's Day 2017" I will pass this along to Liza.

You folks that the police are taking this very seriously .
They were on the Eisenhower Expressway handing out tickets for folks driving while texting/talking.
Every day this week they will set up at random spots , hand out tickets and move to another location.
It's gotta be hands free folks...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
