For those affected by this event, DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME BEGINS TONIGHT. Please remember to set your clocks FORWARD one hour.

Amongst events happening around the world this past week:

*Citizens in some Pacific Ocean areas are trying to start recovery and rescue operations in wake of the recent tsunami. Especially hit hard was Japan, where there is now growing concerns about the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Facility. But despite reports of a recent explosion there, NO radiation leaks have been detected.

*Tensions amidst the Koreas continues as allegations arise that North Korea has used jamming technology so the various units of the South Korea military could not communicate with each other.
*Despite continued protests and riots in his country, Libya leader Muammar Gaddafi remains in power. There are reports that his government has allegedly put bounties on the the rebel leaders.
*The Republican Wisconsin Senators voted on a modified version of the state budget without their Democratic minority brethren present, thus granting Governor Scott Walker's wish to eliminate the state unions' collective bargaining option. The state still does not have an official operating budget at this time. The state capitol building has since been closed to the public to prevent protests!
*The Space Shuttle Discovery successfully completed its last mission this week as the shuttle program prepares to conclude. While recovering from her wounds, United States Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords plans to attend the next launch of the shuttle Endeavor, piloted by her husband.

*The American National Football League team owners and players have yet to reach an agreement on a new contract, which now creates a possibility of at least a delayed, if not canceled 2011 season. The dispute points include player safety issues and the owners making more money while it is the players taking the physical risks.
