Trivia 11/26

trivia 11/26
DID YOU KNOW...
Before the advent of the Internet, stock quotes were printed by telegraph machines on continuous paper ribbon known as ticker tape.
In 1886, New Yorkers became the first to use the tape as confetti during an impromptu celebration of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty, inventing what would come to be known as a "ticker-tape parade." Since then, ticker-tape parades have been used to greet dignitaries, honor war heroes, and fete sports teams.

TRUTH !!
She made her screen debut as a child alongside her father, Jon Voight in the 1982 film Lookin' to Get Out.
Jolie's acting career began in earnest a decade later with the low-budget production Cyborg 2 (1993). Her first leading role in a major film was in Hackers (1995).

She has received an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards.
Jolie promotes humanitarian causes, and is noted for her work with refugees as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). She has been cited as one of the world's most attractive people, as well as the world's "most beautiful" woman, titles for which she has received substantial media attention.
