During the investigation it came out that the pilot of the helicopter was ordered by two men who pretended as tourists. They flew the helicopter to the detention center in Montreal to pick-up the Canadian prisoners. The two men were planning to escape the detention center. The supposedly Canadian tour was made to escape two prisoners.
It was early in the afternoon and the skies were clear when the incident occurred. Although the planned escape push through it was not successful. The Quebec provincial police did not give any other statement regarding the escape. It was just described by the witness who saw the incident. The tourist threatened the pilot to fly to the detention center in Saint Jerome, the Canadian inmates named; Benjamin Hudon-Barbeau and Danny Provencal used ropes to climb to the helicopter. The police have witnessed the said escape. The two Canadian inside the correctional were sentenced due to murder and arson.
The incident was the first escape that happened in a correctional in Quebec. The Director General of the Correction was also amazed with the kind of escape the prisoners have planned for themselves. After what happened a man hunt was ordered and the Quebec police were in their quest to find the two fugitives. The chopper used in escaping the Canadian prisoners was already found with the pilot inside but the others were not found. The pilot was brought to the hospital and after six hours three of the men who were in the chopper were found including one prisoner. The other prisoner was still missing.
After North Korea pursued its nuclear test last February, the United States was prompted to give stricter sanctions on its foreign exchange bank. The said sanction was made after gaining a vote from the United Nations. The tension between the two countries was also brought about by the partnership of the U.S. and South Korea on the various exercises.
Amidst the ongoing tension, North Korea has already cut the hotline between the South and North. A spokesman from the White House also said that the action that North Korea has been doing is creating tension and is intimidating other countries. The White House was also concerned of North Korea’s rhetoric. A spokesperson for the UN Secretary General said that the term of the Korean War armistice does not necessarily free the North and South Korea. The two countries are still at war over the armistice.
The representative of the South Korean President, Park Geun-hye said that the president will visit the United States in May to tackle issues about the recent situation in both the South and North Korea. The said visit will be her first overseas trip as the President. North Korea had another round of nuclear test last February 12. The United Nations Security Council already submitted a resolution to expand its sanctions focusing on North Korea’s finances related to funding the nuclear test. The sanctions were made on the Foreign Trade Bank of North Korea, the primary bank of the North. Included in the sanction is the Chairman of North Korea’s Second Economic Committee, Paek Se-bong. He was reported to have seen the production of missiles in the North. Other three officials in North Korea were also sanctioned by the United States.

In India alone, many teenagers are afraid of being molested. In South Africa, women are fighting against violence, and in some other parts of the world, women cry for justice. All of these women wanted to be free from oppression and be given equal rights to education.

Instead of taking her life away, she used her experienced to fight back, not for herself but for many other victims and women who were one with her advocacy. She was strong enough to fight and get the justice that she so much deserved. Up to now after a decade after the incident that she encountered, she still continues to fight and spread her inspiring words globally.
Mai was one woman who bravely spoke against an order in Pakistan. It is known that in Pakistan most of the rape cases are not reported because a lot of women feared but for Mai, she was not quiet about it. She was very eager to fight for her rights and she said that she would not want the same thing to happen to other women.

The mayor plans to ban the use of Styrofoam. The mayor wants to remove the commonly used plastic containers in some food stalls and restaurant because it is increasing the percentage of recycling.

Serious threats can be very alarming especially when it is spread throughout a social networking site like Facebook, which can connect to a lot of people in different countries. A threat can easily go viral and may cause someone to be arrested and accused. There were already a lot of cases were authorities will check on the social networking sites to investigate on a probable suspect. It is always easy to track down criminals if they have their accounts on Facebook.

Cyber attacks such as hacking is considered cyber crime and is punishable by law. A lot of cyber attacks from different known websites of the government or even other institutions have been circulating eveywhere in the world. It is hard to identify the masterminds of the said hacking but the country from where it came from can be traced. Since the world wide web has been a commonly used tool for research and obtaining of imprtant datas,it is open to everyone but there might be some informations, important ones, kept hidden to the public for security reasons.
Experts on internet hacking have revealed that most of the hackers who does the cyber attacks in countries like th US is coming from China.

The gun violence in the United States has been very rampant last year. A lot of the citizens in the US were already alarmed of the accidents involving the use of guns in their country. More than a dozen of innocent people die because of unexpected violence even among young children and teenagers. The government of the United States headed by President Barack Obama was urged to take action in the various horrific attacks in different States.
Two of the worst cases that involved gun violence were during a shootout in the Colorado Cinema that aired “The Dark Night Rises” were a young man was responsible for claiming the lives of innocent movie viewers in the premiere night of the said movie. The other incident had happened in Newtown, Connecticut where a shooting incident also happened inside the school premises of Sandy Hook Elementary School. The lives of children and school administrators were taken by a 20-year-old boy.
Last Saturday, January 26, a group of people were marching and holding signs in favor of gun control.
The Mayor of Washington DC, Vincent Gray headed the said March on a National Mall in Washington. The thousands of people who attended the March were mostly from Washington but citizens of Newtown, Connecticut also supported the event. One of the speakers of the event was the US education Secretary, Arne Duncan who was pro gun control.

Unemployment is an economic condition marked by the fact that individuals actively seeking jobs remain not hired.The unemployment in Europe does not seem to return to its normal level due to the recession that has been going on and now on its fifth year.
The unemployment rate increased in the last couple of years in the countries who are experiencing big debt problems like Spain and Greece. In a ratio, one of two young workers has no job.Spain’s unemployment rate shot up to a record 26.02 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012, leaving almost six million people out of work, it is clear unemployment will not recover fully before the debt crisis is over and Europe’s economy improves.
The question then boils down if Europe is losing a whole new generation of young workers or just wasting some hard-earned skills.There are some countries that are doing better than in the previous recessions. An example would be Germany and the Netherlands because unemployment is no longer a big problem for the two countries. Two measures that helped Germany keep youth unemployment low are apprentice training and subsidized employment for young people, including self-employment.
It is the fiscal consolidation programs that make the unemployment problem worse although it is said to be necessary in the long term. According to CNN, Deep recession and high unemployment tear into the fabric of society. Unemployment causes misery to families, destroys their self-esteem and wastes their potential. It is both a waste and a regression.
The policies needed to combat unemployment go against the thrust of fiscal consolidation; it is not only an economic problem but a serious social problem.
Curiosity Rover on Mars
A highly anticipated drilling on Mars is set to happen. NASA’s Curiosity rover is to drill a rock outcrop as flat as a pool table that is expected to make a fresh insight into the red planet’s history. Curiosity rover will soon drill for the first rock sample in an area that NASA scientists call a “candy store” of Martian terrain.
Curiosity was due to arrive at the site in the next days. Richard Cook, a project manager of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory said that the car-sized rover will test its drill for the first time “probably in the next two weeks.”
The drilling on a Martian rock has been billed as the most complex engineering task since the acrobatic landing inside a Martian crater last summer. The rover is on its quest to determine if environmental conditions could have been favorable for microbes. Project scientist John Grotzinger of the California Institute of Technology said that “they are thrilled and can’t wait to get drilling.”
Curiosity is a robotic rover exploring Gale Crater on Mars as part of NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory mission (MSL). The $2.5 billion Curiosity mission was launched in 2011. As the most high-tech interplanetary rover, Curiosity has been on a slow streak since its action-packed arrival. Curiosity’s goal is to drive to the base of Mount Sharp. It is a six-month journey to the Red planet without having stops. Grotzinger said the pace of the mission was “100 percent discovery-driven” and can’t be rushed.
It is said that scientist have been captivated by the sedimentary rocks that differ from the pebbles found at the landing site on Mars.
