TIME: Special Timeframe Issue (2000 - 2010)

Aritu pas blk dr trip Kedah cek mail umah dpt Time special issue ni. Aku trus cm interested nk baca pasal Time reflects back what had happened dlm 10 tahun yg lps from year 2010. Time punya issues yg sblm2 ni aku tak baca2 ag pon trus nk baca ni dlu. Haha. Seyes mmg a lot of things had changed these past 10 years !

The cover page

2 pages nila Time tnjk secara briefly what has changed from 2000 to 2010. Let me extracts some infos from both pages

1. A Disappearing Ice Cap

Arctic sea ice melted perceptibly, continuing a long-term decline in the thickness of ice at the top of our planet. Scientist say a smaller ice cap will reflect less sunlight, leading to warmer global temperatures.

(2000 = 7.0 Million SQ KM, 2010 = 4.9 Million SQ KM !)

2. Weddings for All

The Netherlands became the first country to legalize same-sex marriage; Argentina was the first to do so in Latin America.

(2000 = 0 countries, 2010 = 10 countries - Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina)

3. The U.S Defense Budget

Military expenditure by the U.S currently amounts to more than the world's 20 next highest national defense budgets combined.

(2001 = $316 Billion - $13 billion to Afghanistan, 2010 = $693 Billion - $102 billion to Afghanistan and $61 billion to Iraq)

4. Mobile Nation

India's cell-phone market has become one of the world's largest, creating new possibilities for many of the country's rural poor.

(2000 = 2 Million Handsets, 2010 = 545 Million Handsets)

5. Population

2000 = 6. 1 Billion, 2010 = 6.9 Billion

6. Billionaires

2000 = 306, 2010 = 1011

7. All-time top grossing film

2000 = James Cameron's Titanic, $1.8 Billion, 2010 = James Cameron's Avatar, $2.8 Billion

8. Terrorist Attacks

2000 = 423, 2009 = 10,999 (4,584 in Iraq and Afghanistan)

9. Tallest Building

2000 = Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur, 2010 = Burj Khalifa, Dubai

Kat dlm issue ni gak Time byk fokus byk issue yg has changed since 2000 but yg tertarik minat aku nk post dlm blog ni adalah 9/11 incident. Ni gmba time diambil on Sept 25, 2001.

THEN: Ni lak gmba kat Ground Zero on Oct 30, 2001. Development lmbt bergerak pasal masing2 concern on how to develop this site rightfully because it touches everyone lives.

NOW: This picture was taken on Nov 3, 2010. Construction works are in progress.

Stats: 2000 construction workers currently on-site, 1123 victims whose reamins have yet to be identified, 2000 concrete trucks visiting the construction site each month, $625 million damages awarded by the city to rescue workers and 3.8 million total man-hours spent on cleanup.

A new tower, buildings and memorials will be expected to be completed on 2013. Let's hope no one will try to destroy these new buildings and kill innocent lives. Huhu
