"Some 373 natural disasters claimed the lives of more than 296,800 people last year, affecting nearly 208 million and costing nearly $110 billion, according to annual data compiled by the Center for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) of the Université catholique de Louvain in Belgium, and supported by the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR), the UN body charged with helping coordinate efforts to achieve substantive reduction in disaster losses and build resilient nations and communities."
- The terror reigns in Mexico as the drug cartels continue to cause needless murders throughout the country. In Juarez, seven men were assassinated by Mexican drug dealers while playing soccer and appeared to hold not ties to the drug cartels in the northern part of the country.
- Russian President Medvedev chastised the security and management team of the Domodedovo Airport in Russia after a suicide bombing caused the death of approximately 35 people.
- The food industry will be introducing new labeling to let you know how much you should regret eating that cookie.
- Indonesia is jumping onto the crop circle craze about 20 years too late. A crop circle was discovered. Authorities suspect human intervention. Duh.
