Weekly Review
11.04. - 17.04.2013 11.04 US Senate opens first gun control debate in years NASA shoots for asteroid 12.04 A powerful storm system rumbled through Mississippi and other parts of the Southeast on Thursday, spawning a tornado that killed one person and injured others. DEADLY TORNADO HITS SOUTHEAST The US Senate has opened debate on a proposal to expand criminal background checks on gun buyers. The powerful gun lobby vows to oppose new gun control measures, arguing the US Constitution forbids them. NASA plans to capture an asteroid and start sending astronauts aloft again by 2017."This mission allows us to better develop our technology and systems to explore farther than we ever have before ... to places humanity has dreamed of for as long as I've been alive," NASA Administrator Charles Bolden told reporters. 13.04 14.04 Fresh from historic Supreme Court arguments over same-sex unions, advocates want Obama to use his executive powers to fight discrimination at businesses, schools, and military bases and stop waiting for action from a reluctant Congress. The Supreme Court is expected to rule in June on big issues: the constitutional right to gay marriage and the right of gay married couples to federal benefits. Both are supported by Obama. 15.04
MTV Movie Awards With a cast of superheroes and villains, the action movie The Avengers beat out its competitors to become the big winner at the MTV Movie Awards. The Avengers won three awards at the MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, including the top prize, film of the year.
The Avengers also won best fight and best villain for actor Tom Hiddleston. 15.04 BOSTON MARATHON BOMBING The question is: Why?
Authorities don't have an answer. Unlike after the September 11, 2001, attacks, no one claimed responsibility for this terrorist attack. No one had been identified as a suspect. The attack came out of nowhere, with no threat.
President Barack Obama and Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi received identical threatening letters that were laced with ricin poison.
The FBI are still investigating, and it is unclear whether the letter had any connection to the Boston bombings. The envelope had a Tennessee postmark and no return address. JOHN KERRY visits South Korea amid North Korea's nuclear threats Secretary of State John Kerry said that the United States is prepared to enter into talks with North Korea, but only if it is serious about negotiating the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. US-Canada bridge project A new bridge between the US city of Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, in Canada will be built despite opposition from the owner of an ageing span already linking the two cities. The existing 84-year-old Ambassador Bridge is the busiest commercial link between the two countries. This construction would create 12,000 direct jobs and as many as 31,000 indirect new jobs. Two bombs exploded near the finish line at the Boston Marathon on Monday. Explosions happened at about 2:50 p.m., more than two hours after the first of the race's nearly 27,000 runners had crossed the finish line.
Three people were killed in the bombings, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis told reporters Monday night. 16.04
