Holocaust Memorial Day: What is it and how many lives have been lost to genocide?

January 27 is Holocaust Memorial Day. (Picture: Getty Images)Today – January 27 – is Holocaust Memorial Day, a day dedicated to the memory of those whose lives were lost to genocide.  It is sometimes mistaken for Yom Hashoah, a separate memorial day in May, where the Jewish community comes together to honour lost relatives and ancestors.  Holocaust Memorial Day has a slightly broader purpose, aiming to pay tribute to and honour the victims of all genocides throughout history.  With the significance of this day in mind, we’ve put together a reminder of why today is so important, and why Holocaust Memorial Day falls on 27 January every year.

Horoscope for Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2021

Moon Alert Caution! Avoid shopping and important decisions from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Cancer into Leo. Aries (March 21-April 19) Be careful because most of this day is a moon alert. Therefore, restrict your spending to food and gas and postpone important decisions for another day. You might feel some energy building up before tomorrow’s full moon. Taurus (April 20-May 20) This is a mildly accident-prone day, so pay attention to everything you say and do.

Trae Young Held Up Kobe’s Number After Hitting A Dagger Against The Clippers

Getty Image Trae Young had a monster night against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday, scoring 38 points on 12-for-23 shooting with five assists in a 108-99 Atlanta Hawks win. Late in the game, Young hit a triple from quite a way behind the three-point line that sealed the deal for Atlanta, and right after the shot went in, he paid a subtle tribute to someone else who was known for having prolific games against the Clippers. Young pointed to a spot on the floor, and as he was walking to his bench following a timeout, held up a 2 on one hand and a 4 on the other in memory of the late Kobe Bryant, who died one year ago on Tuesday in a helicopter crash. Trae makes the logo three and holds up 24. pic.twitter.com/00lPRirGsF — NBA (@NBA) January 27, 2021 Young was a gigantic fan of ...

First Biden-Putin call shows both cautious on big concerns

WASHINGTON — U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian leader Vladimir Putin held their first conversation as counterparts Tuesday in a phone call that underscored troubled relations and the delicate balance between the former Cold War foes. According to the White House, Biden raised concerns about the arrest of opposition figure Alexei Navalny, Russia’s alleged involvement in a massive cyber espionage campaign and reports of Russian bounties on American troops in Afghanistan. The Kremlin, meanwhile, focused on Putin’s response to Biden’s proposal to extend the last remaining U.S.-Russia arms control treaty. While the readouts from the two capitals emphasized different elements, they both suggested that U.S-Russia relations will be guided, at least at the beginning of the Biden administration,

Avalanche pounds Sharks 7-3 behind depth scoring

The definition of scoring depth was on display Tuesday night at Ball Arena, where 14 of 18 Avalanche skaters had a point or more in the club’s second consecutive dismantling of a visiting opponent.

Defensive lapses doom Sharks in lopsided loss to Avalanche

The Sharks didn’t stand a chance Tuesday night against the Colorado Avalanche. Not after committing one defensive breakdown after another in the first two periods. The Sharks allowed three goals in the first period and four more in the second as they were throttled 7-2 by the Avalanche in game one of their two-game series that continues Thursday at Ball Arena. Goalie Martin Jones, making his second straight start and third in four games, was hung out to dry as the Avalanche scored five unanswered goals after Ryan Donato scored for San Jose at the 10:39 mark of the first period. After Samuel Girard scored at the 5:48 mark of the second period to give the Avalanche a 5-1 lead, Jones was pulled in favor of Devan Dubnyk.

Denver asks federal judge to stay order requiring 7 days’ notice before homeless sweeps

Attorneys for the city of Denver asked a federal appeals court Tuesday night to stop a federal ruling that requires city officials to give seven days’ notice before clearing most illegal homeless encampments. The request comes a day after a ruling in a class-action lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court of Colorado in October that sought to stop the sweeps entirely. City attorneys filed an emergency motion Tuesday night to stay the decision, and also gave notice they’ll appeal the case in the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The emergency motion, filed with that appeals court, says Monday’s ruling prevents the city “from quickly addressing the unpredictable but unquestionably significant public health risks presented by encampments.” “This places all Denver residents — including those exp

Hoarding tragedy reminds is that there are resources to help with pets when a crisis hits

Have you ever had the kind of week that made you just want to crawl under the covers and hide from the world while binging on ice cream sandwiches and mango margaritas? No? Anyone? Just me? Well, last week was one of those weeks for me. I’m not ashamed to say (ok, maybe a little bit ashamed) that I am the world’s worst patient. When I’m sick or injured, I become a mopy, irritable, whiny man-child – and it’s usually best to just avoid me completely unless you want to be dragged into a melodramatic emotional meltdown that leaves you wishing for an antidepressant prescription with a double Bourbon chaser. I wish I could say that’s an exaggeration. I had just had knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. The procedure itself was straightforward and simple – taking no more than about 20 minutes o
