Friday July 11, 2014

US date format: 7/11/2014, UK date format: 11/7/2014

It was Friday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 11, 2014). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Fancy by Iggy Azalea Featuring Charli XCX. Guardians of the Galaxy, directed by James Gunn, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2014 while David And Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Girl Meets World. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments or Destiny of Spirits.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2014 or at July 11 across the years.
