2010: A Year in Mocs
The year 2010 (MMX) marked the end of a decade, and the beginning of a new one. As with every year, 2010 had it's share of significant events from around the globe. With Wikipedia assistance, I present to you: 2010: A Year in Mocs. Enjoy.
About this creation

January 12: A deadly 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocks the country of Haiti, devastating the nations capitol, Port-Au-Prince. The earthquake is put on the record as one of the deadliest ever, killing over 230,000 people.






February 12-28: The 21st winter Olympic games were held in Vancouver, and Whistler, Canada. The United States walked away with 37 medals, breaking Germany's 2002 record of 36. Canada, however, won the most gold medals in the games, winning 14 medals, and beating the Soviet Union's 1976, and Norway's 2002 wins of 13 medals.






March 23: A south Korean naval ship named the ROKS Cheonan is sunk off the country's west coast, killing 64 of the ship's 104 personnel. An independent investigation done in May points the finger at North Korea, who denies the allegations.






April 20: Considered to be the largest environmental disaster in the United States' history, the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig run by British Petroleum explodes in the gulf of Mexico. The explosion killed 11 workers, and injured 17, and caused tremendous damage to the gulf's wildlife.






May 20: Scientists announce the creation of a fully functional synthetic genome.






June 11-July 11: The 2010 FIFA World Cup is held in South Africa, and is won by the country of Spain. Shown along side of the pictured Spanish football player is Germany's Paul the Octopus, who was quite adept at picking the correct winner in many matches. Sadly, Paul died on October 26, 2010.






July 25: "Wikileaks" Julian Assange publishes over 90,000 classified internal reports about United States involvement in Afghanistan spanning from 2004-2010, sparking heated debates over the limits of free press.






August 10: The World Health Organization declares the H1N1 "Swine Flu" pandemic over, declaring that flu patterns have returned to normal.






September 28: A landslide in Oaxaca, Mexico is said to have killed 7 people, and cause around 100 people to go missing.






October 13: After being trapped in a San José mine for a record 69 days, 33 miners stuck 700 meters(2,296 feet)underground in a mine near Copiapó, Chile, are safely brought back to the surface. (One of those miners was found to have a mistress, by the way.)






November 23 (my birthday): North Korea shells Yeonpyeong Island, an island in South Korean territory. This prompted a military response by South Korea, raising tensions between the two even higher. The United Nations has called the act one of the most serious incidents since the Korean War's end.






December 22: United States president Barack Obama signed a repeal bill to do away with the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, which previously banned openly homosexual men and women from serving in the armed forces.





Somers' Scribbles: Hopefully my facts are correct. Anyway, last year I was asked if I was going to make another recap, this time for 2010. You can see what I chose to do. If you have forgotten about what happened in 2009, go here:

The thing in August - the Swine Flu thing. That can't be right. A lot of people have recently died where I am from of it. It may just be a serious winter cold but on the news they say swine flu . . . .

Wonderful! But what about the explosion at the mine in New Zealand near the end of the year? Also, what about the volcano eruptions in Iceland? They were pretty important.

BP throws a huge fit if you call them British Patrolium. Their actual company name is BP. There are other companies that have done this. General Motors is now actually GM I think, and the Young mens Christian Association is just The Y now. Its a strange type of re branding.

Most excellent. I was expecting a round up of your past MOCs, but this is soooo much better. Great little vigs - my favourite as a build is the Chilean Miner scene, but the U.S Military law repeal (a ridiculous law in the first place) made me laugh : )

Very good! Being able to view events from a somewhat different perspective is very interesting!

This is great! I love the overview of events, and the MOC's are just brilliant. I like the miners from Copiapo most, great build. But I do not share the same opinion about Paul the octopus... (I'm from Holland...) Greets, Jelle
