The Year in Review-2014-2

The year started with Ebola epidemic in Western Africa and till now it has not been contained but it has slowed after major effort by rich countries to pour resources to stop it before it becomes a full blown calamity for all. Some countries restricted citizens of some Ebola hit countries to come to their countries and some send medical teams to treat patients of Ebola in their home countries. Let's see how this year fares for Ebola. The most expensive winter Olympics started in Russia amid tight security and went without any major or minor incident happening and for a few weeks the world turned their eyes towards sports. The annexation of Crimea which was part of Ukraine was also a big news which continue to garner headlines in the New Year also as the Russian holds tighten around it and the world could not do anything about it as you know Russia is a Nuclear power and the only way to deal with it is to hit it with sanctions and that is what the West is doing right now. The disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was a major news story last year. Despite massive amount of rescue efforts from major world powers, nobody still knows where the airline went down and if ever we will be able to recover the bodies. For the families who have lost their loved ones, there is no closure to their agony as the vast ocean is the grave yard of their loved ones and they would never know what happened to them.
