Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving may be the first major holiday you'll be celebrating with extended family in more than a year. Why not entertain them with some interesting facts about the holiday?!

In this month's Fast Five, we share five fun facts about the Thanksgiving holiday.
1. Turkey wasn't served at the first Thanksgiving. Instead, the menu featured venison, duck, goose, oysters, lobster, eel, fish, pumpkins, and cranberries.
 
2. Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863 after being convinced to do so by Sarah Josepha Hale, the woman who wrote, "Mary Had a Little Lamb."
 
3. More people travel to Orlando, Florida than anywhere else on Thanksgiving.
4. The average number of calories consumed on Thanksgiving is 4,500. That's nearly double the recommended calorie intake per day!
 
5. The tradition of football on Thanksgiving began in 1876 with a game between Yale and Princeton. The first NFL games were played on Thanksgiving in 1920.

In case you missed them, check out these recent top reads from publications across the industry.

Secure Delaware Conference


Last month, PSCI was both a sponsor and vendor at the Secure Delaware 2021 Cybersecurity Workshop.

Unlike last year's virtual conference, this year's conference was held in-person at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington DE (though still open to virtual attendees).

Hosted by the Delaware Department of Technology & Information, the conference provided valuable cybersecurity information and education. Topics included phishing/scamming in 2021, cloud solutions, cyber insurance, and more.

Each year, this is one of our most favorite conferences to attend as we get to mingle with both PSCI clients and consultants. We're already looking forward to next year!

A Spotlight on Mental Health

 
PSCI utilizes the services of Creative Benefits to assist with the intricacies of benefits administration. As part of their outreach, they've put forth a Mental Health Campaign to increase mental health awareness and provide mental health education.

We are using this space to deliver those campaigns to you!
