Current Event in Romania Several protests, some dangerous, broke out in Romania January 2013. The protests were initially triggered when President Basescu verbally attacked junior health minister Dr. Raed Arafat, blaming him for blocking an important health care reform law. Previously, Arafat had reorganized Romania's emergency systems, mainly the ambulance-paramedic systems. When Arafat resigned from the Ministry of Health, the public rose up in protest and clashed with police in the streets. Arafat was reinstated in the Ministry of Health, but the protests took on a life of their own. People began to complain about salaries, prices, the environment, and other matters. On one occasion, the police had to fire tear gas on the crowds. Since there are not enough protestors to really make a difference in the government, the issue is cooling down.

In the summer Olympics of 1976 in Montreal, Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci reached a feat yet to be achieved. The 14 year old received seven perfect tens, along with three golds, a silver, and one bronze. After the games, Romania named her a Hero of Socialist Labour. The '76 games marked the height of her career in gymnastics, and in 1989 she came to the United States. "Nadia Comaneci (Romanian Gymnast)." Encyclopedia Britannica Online.
