Region – Today is Monday, March 5. It is the anniversary of the Boston Massacre which occurred in 1770. It spite of its name, there was not a tremendous amount of casualties; only five Americans were killed. But the incident was used to help foster the already simmering bad blood between the colonists and the British troops who were enforcing the rule of Britain's King George.
On a happier note, today in 1973 the Hula-Hoop, which is enjoying a resurgence as a new exercise trend, was patented.
Here are six tips for the day –
