US date format: 7/11/2010, UK date format: 11/7/2010

It was Sunday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 11, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of July people in US were listening to California Gurls by Katy Perry. The Secret World of Arrietty, directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Empire Of The Summer Moon by S. C. Gwynne was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Twisted. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 1378 (km) or Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
