From Ebola epidemic to the plane that is missing. Much like with any other year, 2014 has had some happenings that are more vital than other occasions. According to my gathering, below are some occasions that trembled the world and events that can make the year 2014 unforgettable. I'm unsure if I have touched on all them but at least these will be the events that are most remembered. It's possible for you to feel free to leave a comment and mention some events which you think deserve to be in this list.
After the departure of Osama bin Laden, the world thought the root of extremism has been de-escalated. The unexpected development of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) found the world by surprise. Most folks were captured without guard together with the US military acknowledging to underestimating how powerful extremism movements have become. One of the strategies of ISIL was using the social media power to spread its marketing and among social being the video that displayed brutal decapitation of abducted foreigners. Late in 2014, US found substantial ground offensive in an effort to place a stop to the ISIL movement and summoned the world.
Winter 2014 has also been recorded as the coldest winter in a number of cities in USA. Many cities including Philadelphia, New York and Chicago recorded in history. I'm not a weather specialist but I'd suppose that that is one of the effects of global warming. While 2014 will be remembered as one of the chilliest years, experts forecast that such trend may continue for few years to come. I'm unsure if this will be enough to convince the politicians and something ought to be done. I certainly expect they accept this as a truth of truth and certainly will come to their sanity. I also hope that all mankind could join hands so that our planet might be saved, in doing something.
Not all of us can remember the amount of petroleum at the time when the global monetary crisis started in 2008. It was in the regions of $60 per barrel. The following years found oil cost creeping to $130 per barrel's greatest stage, drastically to the pain of many families owners who found their utility gas statement doubling. Then ultimately the petroleum collapse came to happen in 2014, dropping back to its price levels before 2008. Then all along I kept believing that the reduced petroleum costs will be an excellent thing for typical men like me, only to be puzzled on reading that such a low oil cost is rather a bad thing for the world market. At the conclusion of 2014, gas prices in many cities in the US had come down from its peak of $5 to less than $2. That's the reason this year appears like the one that US auto-owners will be remember the most for quite a while to come.
There are still many occasions that occurred in the year 2014 and have yet to be covered in my list. However, the world will likely be so boring if all of us see things the same way. You might have that will, to a sizable extent, determines which events are somewhat more important to you and your own interests.
