World Events of 2008 so far

While I was away in Montreal for a week, I was a little isolated from everyone in the outside world. Sometimes it's nice to be disconnected from the internet and media, but you also miss a couple big important events. At conference, we had a new updates on PowerPoint every morning. A couple of the big events so far this year were:
-Elections in Kenya and the rising violence
-Cease-fire stopping in Sri Lanka
-Oil hitting $100 a barrel
-Canada winning Gold at the World Junior's for the 4th straight year
-Obama pulling ahead in the races for the Democrats

What else will 2008 bring us?
