News of the Week – 4th Issue

The first man on the moon has passed away:

Neil Armstrong died yesterday at the age of 82, suffering complications following his recent cardiac bypass surgery. Armstrong made history with his partner Buzz Aldrin being the first men to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969.

Mass killer Anders Breivik has been sentenced to 21 years in jail: 

Norwegian court found Breivik to be sane and sentenced him the longest possible time in jail. He killed 77 people a little over a year ago with a massive bomb blast that shattered buildings in the capital Oslo, then rampaging through an island youth camp run by the ruling Labour Party with a gun.

Jury Awards $1 Billion to Apple in Samsung Patent Case:

Apple won a decisive victory on Friday in a lawsuit against Samsung. The court found that Samsung infringed on a series Apple’s patents on mobile devices, awarding Apple more than $1 billion in damages. The decision could essentially force it and other smartphone makers to redesign their products to be less Apple-like, or risk further legal defeats.

Scientists say we should hate Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays equally as much as we hate Mondays:

According to a study by US investigators, the moods of working people are as gloomy on all weekdays as they are on Mondays, except on Fridays of course. Friday is claimed to be the only stress-free day of the whole week. This study suggests we ditch the whole myth of “miserable Monday” and perhaps be miserable every day. I have to disagree, because Wednesday is my favorite day of the week, and I wanna keep it that way

Emma Watson is too famous to go out on her own:

Emma Watson has become such a huge star that she can’t go out without security. If she wanted to go to a museum, she soon would have a fan asking for a photo and then the next one would see it as an opportunity as well. This would easily cause a domino-effect and she wouldn’t be left alone.

Air Guitar Championship Goes To Americans:

Justin “Nordic Thunder” Howard from Chicago has won the 17th Air Guitar World Championships held in the northern Finnish city of Oulu. Matt Burns from New York came second and the third place went to Theun de Jong from Netherlands. The contest has been held in Finland since 1996
