Did you know….hehehe!

The Year of the Tiger is a period of change characterized by intense activities, dramatic developments, and political conflicts. Ever wonder what momentous events happened during the year of the Tiger????

World War I erupted in the year of the Tiger; the Cuban missile crisis and the war in Kosovo happened on the year of the Tiger.  And this year will be no different.

Major political changes also occurred during the year of the Tiger – two US presidents experienced major set backs during the year of the Tiger. President Richard Nixon resigned over the Watergate scandal during the year of the Tiger; and President Bill Clinton faced impeachment charges on this year too.

Major breakthroughs also happened during the year of the Tiger in techonology and ICT such as – in the previous year of the Tiger Google launched its Internet search engine, the first digital terrestrial TV was seen, and the ballpen, and audio cassette were invented.

Famous people born under the year of the Tiger – Sun Yat Sen, Queen Elizabeth II, Emily Dickinson, Isadora Duncan, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Marilyn Monroe, Marco Polo, Beatrix Potter, Karl Marx, Ludwig van Beethoven.

Note that these people are not only famous for the sake of being famous but rather they had made their mark in history.
