Back to School Week - Friday: History!



And here is the example for the Friday - History!

The ancient civilization of Sumer introduced the world to a number of different things, including irrigation, writing, and the idea of laws. With a society dating as far back as 4000 B.C., they were also responsible for one of the earliest examples of a riddle, said to have been written down almost 4,000 years ago. It was first translated by E.I. Gordon in 1960 and is a great example of Sumerian culture and their views on life. There are two versions but the shorter, and more poetic, reads: “There is a house. One enters it blind and comes out seeing. What is it?”

The answer is wrong :/

The United States celebrates its independence on the Fourth of July, but that’s not actually when the document was signed. The country declared its independence on July 2, 1776, which John Adams wrote would become “the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America.” The final draft was completed and approved by Congress two days later (July 4) but wasn’t signed until August 2.

Historians have generally accepted McKean's version of events, arguing that the famous signed version of the Declaration was created after July 19, and was not signed by Congress until August 2, 1776.[107] In 1986, legal historian Wilfred Ritz argued that historians had misunderstood the primary documents and given too much credence to McKean, who had not been present in Congress on July 4.[108] According to Ritz, about thirty-four delegates signed the Declaration on July 4, and the others signed on or after August 2.[109] Historians who reject a July 4 signing maintain that most delegates signed on August 2, and that those eventual signers who were not present added their names later.


That's what my wikipedia is telling me :shuffle:

How / Why?


Answer would have been:

Belgium is divided regional and linguistic.

Autonomous regions: Flanders in the north, Wallonia in the south, and the Brussels-Capital Region.

Main linguistic groups or communities: the Dutch-speaking, mostly Flemish Community, and the French-speaking Community,
(and a small German-speaking Community in the East Cantons)
