Terror in Afghanistan and Syria, the crazyness following the "Innocence of Muslims"... September was, again, painful on the world scene.
So I prefer to focus on our "desire to know":
Element 113, the chemical element of atomic mass 113, has been discovered by a Japanese team, which will now get to name it. The desire to know is an amazing force: over 9 years, the team fired 130 quintillion atoms of zinc to a bismuth target, eventually creating... 3 atoms of Element 113, which lived... a few milliseconds. Speak about tenacity.
Ephemeral turmoil or profound revolution? 2011 was a year of serious challenges and legitimate questioning, at least. OWS is now in Moscow.
In September, Las Vegas also hosted the biggest live music event in radio history. Jay-Z, Coldplay, The Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, David Guetta and more... an impressive show to promote iHeartRadio, facing tough competition from leader Pandora, which made a huge IPO earlier this year.
