  1. 1. BEST & WORST OF THE YEAR PRESENTATION Current Events Project By Zaeem Nazir Period 1
  2. 2. MOST MEMORABLE – PRESIDENT OBAMA’S ELECTION VICTORY  I have chosen the topic of President Barack Obama’s Election victory as most memorable of the year. I have chosen this as most memorable because it is the first time in history, in which an African-American becomes president of the United States. Furthermore, it proves that the United States grew from slavery and segregation into equality for all. Link to Article
  3. 3. MOST AMAZING – MICHAEL PHELPS 8 GOLD MEDALS  I think that this event qualifies as Most Amazing of the year because Michael Phelps won 8 Olympic Gold medals in Beijing 2008. This broke the previous record achieved by Mark Spitz (7 Golds in the Munich 1972). Link to Article
  4. 4. MOST HEROIC – MIRACLE ON THE HUDSON  I think that the miracle on the Hudson is the most heroic because it is rare that a pilot is able to crash land a plane in such a manner that everyone survives. Furthermore, the emergency response of the rescue teams was exemplary. Link to Article
  5. 5. BIGGEST SCAM/SCANDAL – MADOFF  I think that the biggest scam/scandal was done by Madoff because he conned people out of 65 billion dollars. Now, his former clients have lost their life savings and want retribution. Link to Article
  6. 6. MOST CONTROVERSIAL - BAILOUTS  I think that the bailouts were the most controversial because American tax dollars from the people were going to companies trying to stay afloat. Even though the bailout money was given to the institutions, it still did not improve the situation as expected. But, if the bailout wasn’t done, millions of people would have lost their jobs.
