Cinco de Mayo -- Spanish for "fifth of May" -- is celebrated in the United States and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla,where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla. Mexican Americans also often see the day as a source of pride; one way they can honor their ethnicity is to celebrate this day. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico's Independence Day -- the most important national holiday in Mexico -- which is celebrated on September 16.

To fold a towel swan, follow these six simple steps. Spread the bath towel out landscape style. Start rolling the left and right sides of the towel towards the mid point of the towel. Keep rolling until you reach the middle of the towel. Rotate your shape 90 degrees. The point becomes the beak of the swan. Gently shape the towel back on itself to make a swan shape. Roll the hand towel lengthwise. Fold it in half, and put it on top of the body of the swan. This provides the support needed to prop up the neck of your creation, which gives it a more realistic looking appearance.
A credit card's magstripe works similarly to cassette tape. It uses tiny magnetic particles, which are embedded in plastic, to encode information. The pole orientation of the particles—north or south—determines what is written on the magstripe. A magstripe can hold approximately 100 bytes of information. On a credit card, this information typically includes: the card holder's name, the card's account number, the expiration date, and the Card Security Code (CSC) which is also called the Card Verification Value (CVV). This information is all that is needed to process a credit card transaction.

Specifically, the tears drain into your nose via the nasolacrimal duct which drains into the inferior nasal meatus. Once in your nose, the tears mix with mucus to form very liquidy snot. This is actually happening all the time, but when you cry, there is simply a lot more moisture from your eyes going into your nose than normal, making the mucus in your nose even more liquidy than it would otherwise be.
