5. The Armenian alphabet is one of the most advanced in the world
The Armenian alphabet was created in 405-406 AD by a scholar and monk Mesrop Mashtots. The key to creating the Armenian alphabet served the ancient Armenian language, consisting of 28 letters, which absolutely didn’t correspond to the sounds of the Armenian language. Mashtots’ alphabet consists of 36 letters. 7 letters convey vowel sounds and 29 letters - consonants. After the XII century 2 more letters appeared in the alphabet, and in 1940 through the merger of existing two letters another letter appeared in the alphabet, but it has no title. Scientists consider the Armenian alphabet one of the three most advanced in the world, along with Georgian and Korean alphabets.

7. Armenia is the homeland of apricot
Armenia is considered to be the homeland of apricot. This is due to the history of the penetration of apricot from Asia to Europe. The famous French biologist De Poerderle (fr. De Poerderlé) in the XVIII century, wrote: "The name of this tree comes from Armenian, Asian province, where it appeared and from where it was brought to Europe ..."
Previously it was thought that in the XIX century, the apricot was imported from Armenia to Greece by Alexander the Great, and then from Greece to Italy. This version was not confirmed by the Roman and Greek inscriptions of the time: apricot is not mention there.
However, apricot is mentioned in the sources of the I century, which gives evidence that the apricot was in Italy in the I century BC, after the Roman-Parthian Wars. Apricot was called "Armenian apple" (lat. Mela armeniaca, lat. pomum armeniacum), which confirms the theory that the apricot was brought to Rome from Armenia. Arab geographer Ibn al-Faqih in his "Book of Countries" (903) mentions the Armenian apricot under its Armenian name “tsiran” and calls it "the fruit of Armenia."
Famous Armenian musical instrument "duduk" is made of apricot wood.

Ararat Mountain range consists of two extinct volcanoes: Great Ararat (in Armenian Masis, 5165 m) and Small Ararat (in Armenian Sis, 3927 m).
However, at present, the mountain is not in Armenia. It is in the territory of modern Turkey. It was moved to Turkey in 1921 by the Treaty of Kars. The modern Republic of Armenia doesn’t recognize the Treaty of Kars.
9. Armenian Genocide
Armenian Genocide - Armenian massacres organized and implemented by the authorities of the Ottoman Empire in 1915 and lasted until 1923. The genocide was carried out by means of physical destruction and deportation, including the displacement of the civilian population in the conditions that lead to certain death. In 1907 in Turkey the power was taken by the Young Turks, who had the ideology of pan-Turkism, or the dream of a "Great Turan" from the Balkans to the Altai. Turkey's entry into the First World War in 1914 gave the Young Turks the opportunity for a final decision of "the Armenian issue", that is, the complete extermination of the Armenians.
"Who now remembers the extermination of the Armenians?" - asked Adolf Hitler, thus motivating the German attack on Poland and planning the Holocaust.
About 1,500.00 Armenians were violently killed. Armenian Genocide is recognized and condemned by 26 countries. This event was 100 years old on April 24, 2015.
10. The Armenian Diaspora
The total number of Armenians in the world is 10-12 million, whereas the population of Armenia is around 3 million.
After the 1915 genocide nearly 500,000 Armenians were scattered around the world and Armenian Diaspora greatly increased. Armenian refugees from Turkey settled in many cities of Eastern Europe, the Balkans and the Middle East. Large Armenian communities now exist in the United States, Russia, Iran, Lebanon, Ukraine, France, Syria, Argentina, Jordan, Bulgaria, Brazil, Canada, Australia and other countries.
Diaspora has a great economic and political support to Armenia.

A Canary for One “Extended Summary“
First published in 1927, “A Canary for One” occurs in the early 1920s on a train
headed toward Paris. Its three characters, an older wealthy woman and a couple in their late twenties, are all Americans; only at the end do we realize that the young husband is the actual narrator of the story. As they sit together on the train, the older woman initiates and then dominates the conversation. She first voices her concern that modern trains move at such rapid rates that wrecks are bound to occur but then turns to the topic of marriage, asserting that only American men are suitable husbands for American women. This, in turn, brings the woman to what is really on her mind, her daughter. While on a family vacation to Switzerland two years beforehand, she confides to the young couple her daughter had met an eligible Swiss bachelor, and the two had fallen in love.
But the woman would not let her daughter wed a foreigner, and she forced the family to return to America. Her daughter, she notes, is still distraught about this, and the woman says that she has bought a singing canary to cheer he up.
Throughout the conversation, the young wife says very little, and her husband says virtually nothing at all. The young woman does reveal that she and her husband had spent their honeymoon at the same Swiss resort, and that they had lived in Paris but were then forced to leave by the coming of World War I. She adds that they are now headed back to Paris. Meanwhile, her husband merely looks out the window of the speeding train, as the passing landscape is described through his eyes. It features a wrecked train, an incinerated farmhouse, and other scenes of devastation. When the train pulls into Paris, the young man finally reveals the hidden twist: he and his young American wife are goSummary“
