Major U.S. Holiday Today: Independence Day


Reading time ( words)

Today marks the 246th Independence Day of the United States of America. Also known as the Fourth of July, this day commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress, as well as the declaration by the Congress that the American colonies are free and independent states. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.

Interesting note: Benjamin Franklin, George Clymer, Robert Morris, George Read, James Wilson, and Roger Sherman were the only founders to sign both the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the Constitution of the United States in 1787.

Just because it’s a holiday week doesn’t mean the news is slow. Okay, maybe a little bit slower than normal, but “slower” can also be the same as “fast, just less fast.” We’re going a bit deeper into the list for our must-reads looking for high-impact hard news. I mean, you’ve all read the curated stuff already, no sense rehashing that. In fact, I’ll even throw in a bonus news item just because there was some good stuff this week. Have a great New Year’s weekend.

This week, we bring you on-the-grow news from NCAB and Aegis, some market reports on smart manufacturing, and a widely read column on cybersecurity from Mehul Davé.
