January 17 in Philippine History
1981 – President Ferdinand E. Marcos lifted Martial Law by virtue of Proclamation 2045.
2001- The impeachment trial of then President Joseph E. Estrada was abrubtly stopped even though nothing has yet been proven. It eventually led to the start of the second successful EDSA Revolt that ousted him from power and installed Vice-president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to the presidency. This would later be considered as one among many monumental mistakes in the annals of Philippine history, as many, including former President Corazon C. Aquino (1933-2009), who joined the clamor for his ouster, later on, admitted the mistake and apologized publicly to Estrada.

Ano ang Tawag Doon?
May mga parte sa ulo at mukha ng tao na maaaring hindi ninyo alam ang pangalan: Ang puwang sa pagitan ng mga kilay sa itaas na bahagi ng punong-ilong na nakalubog ay tinatawag na nasion. Ang nakalubog na bahagi o vertical indentation naman sa pagitan ng mga butas ng ilong at ng itaas na labi ay ang philtrum. Ang puwang sa pagitan ng mga ngipin ay tinatawag na diastema. Ang kapirasong laman sa bungad ng butas ng tainga ay ang tragus.

The Smiley in lieu of sub-atomic particles
as the symbol of “The Science of Happiness”
on the cover of Time Magazine January 17, 2006 issue
Harvey Ross Ball (1921-2001), the creator of the Smiley face figure in 1963, was a veteran National Guard based on Asia and the Pacific, and retired as a brigadier general in 1973. Ball never applied for a trademark or copyright of the Smiley, and earned just 45 dollars for his work. His work could have made him a multi-billionaire by now.
