MONET

Answer: Rembrandt was a 17th-century painter and etcher whose work came to dominate what has since been named the Dutch Golden Age. His full name was Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. Harmenszoon means that his father’s name was Harmen, and van Rijn refers to where his family lived, near the Rhine River. So his full name means Rembrandt, son of Harmen, from the Rhine. Known for his self-portraits and biblical scenes, Rembrandt is considered to be one of the greatest painters in European history. Although he’s most famous for his 1642 painting The Night Watch, Rembrandt created hundreds of paintings, drawings, and etchings in his life.

Answer: Lin-Manuel Miranda is an award-winning actor, performer and writer known for his groundbreaking Broadway musicals.

In 2016 Hamilton was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and that year it received an unprecedented 16 Tony nominations. The production won 11 Tony Awards, falling one short of the record. Hamilton was named best musical, and Miranda won for best book and best original score.

POLIIO

Answer: On this day in 1953, medical researcher Dr. Jonas Salk announced on a national radio that he successfully tested a vaccine against the virus that causes the crippling disease of polio. Polio, a disease that has affected humanity throughout recorded history, attacks the nervous system and can cause varying degrees of paralysis. There is still no cure for polio once it has been contracted, but the use of vaccines has virtually eliminated polio in the United States. Globally, there are now around 250,000 cases each year, mostly in developing countries.

 UNO

Answer: Uno is a classic card game where players take turns matching a card in their hand with the current card shown on top of the deck either by color or number. The object of the game is to be the first player to score 500 points, by being the first to shed of all of one's own cards and scoring points for the cards still held by the other players. According to the official rules, a player who plays their next-to-last-card must call "Uno" as a warning to the other players. If a player does not call "Uno" and is caught before the next player takes a turn, they must draw two cards as a penalty.
