Amongst events that have happened around the world this past week include:

*Former Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi was killed by "rebels" in his home town of Sirte Thursday. While this event has since been confirmed, the final arrangements for the body have yet to be made, despite the fact that as a Muslim, Gadhafi's remains should have had been dealt with within 24 hours of his demise.
*Libya's liberation will officially be declared in a formal announcement Sunday as the first step to establishing a free democracy within that besieged country.
*STRANGE BUT TRUE: Guess what television series first predicted Gadhafi's death?
An episode of Second Chances, a short lived comedy starring Matthew Perry in 1987. The episode in question stated the dictators death as occurring in 2011, although it got the exact date for the event wrong. It can be found on YouTube by looking up "Second Chances, Gadhafi's death".

*United States President Barack Obama has announced that all American troops will be removed from Iran by the end of the 2011 calendar year.
*Despite some disorganization within some of the individual groups, the Occupy Wall Street grass roots movement continues across the country and the world.
*Senior citizens in America will receive a 3.5 Cost of Living Adjustment to their Social Security checks come 2012.
*President Obama's American Jobs Act was struct down in the United States Senate.
*Last weekend, we reported about the Iranian actress who was to receive 90 lashes with a cane and a year in jail for appearing in the movie My Tehran For Sale. We have since learned that the movie's director, Jafar Panani, has been sentenced to six years in jail by the Iranian government for making the film. Talk about harsh movie critics.
*It's the Apple iPhone 4S versus Motorola's Droid RAZR while Google unveils a new smartphone program and device (the Galaxy Nexus) of its own.

*The American League Texas Rangers faces the National League Saint Louis Cardinals to determine the winner of the 2011 World Series of Major League Baseball. The "Best of 7" contest is tied at one game apiece with the third game to be held tonight in Texas.
