First Day of The G8 Summit

First Day of The G8 Summit

First day of the G8 summit Is expected to focus on the following aspects

The Group of Eight will bring together heads of state from United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Canada, Italy, France, and Russia. Local authorities expect around 2,000 anti-capitalist protestors at a march scheduled for Monday. Protests are by no means unexpected at the talks, and a police force of 8,000 will guard the fenced-in golf resort.

But more important than the crowd-repelling water cannons available to the guarding force will be the diplomatic shotguns with which the congregated leaders will attempt to hit the topics of discussion as they go whizzing by. UK Prime Minister David Cameron, the host of this year’s summit, set the agenda of the meeting to focus on the alliterative topics of trade, taxes, and transparency. The topics of taxes and transparency, both aimed at corporations and financial reporting, will more or less manifest themselves as one cohesive issue. Stepping up to fill the topical triad will be a completely unrelated international situation — that of the conflict in Syria. read more

What is the G8 Summit?

The purpose of the G8 is to provide a forum for the world’s major leaders to meet and try to find solutions to major global issues such as economic growth and crisis management, global security, energy, and terrorism. However, because the members of the Group are not obligated to follow what is requested at the summit, the group receives much criticism about its relevance and effectiveness.

Boston Marathon Bombing

Boston Marathon Bombing

The explosions hours into the 117th running of the iconic 26.2-mile race came well after the elite runners had finished, but near the time when the bulk of the about 27,000 runners were laboring toward the finish line.

 Two bombs hundreds of yards apart went off within seconds of each other on what was also Patriots Day. Dazed and bloodied victims walked around seeking help as officials rushed to their aid, taking them to one of the medical tents that dot any marathon route. Some victims had severed limbs.

 There was no immediate claim of responsibility and officials said there had been no warning to what officials were considering an act of terrorism.

“Any event with multiple explosive devices — as this appears to be — is clearly an act of terror, and will be approached as an act of terror,” one federal official said. “However, we don’t yet know who carried out this attack, and a thorough investigation will have to determine whether it was planned and carried out by a terrorist group, foreign or domestic.”

President Obama pledged federal help for the investigation and cautioned people not to jump to conclusions. But he also struck a firm note. read more
