February 7, 2011

If you're a sports blogger of NFL fan you might spend today, the day after Super Bowl XLV talking about the season ahead or reactions to last nights game.

For the rest of us, here's some other goings on to talk about.

It's 20 years since Haiti's first democratic election, and Jean-Bertrand Aristide is sworn in (1991). Questions to ponder: How has democracy impacted Haiti? How does democracy impact Haiti in dealing with crisis, such as the earthquacks from a couple years ago?

2 years since the busfires in Victoria Australia left 173 dead, the worst natural disaster in Australian history (2009). Questions to ponder: How do you respond to a natural disaster of this nature, especially if it is a long way away? What types of disasters are you most likely to be personally or emotionally impacted by?
