Self-Administered Test on World's Top News

Dr Abe V Rotor

1. Very recently two world leaders emerged almost on the same day.  Each has followers of 1.2 billion.    Who are they? How were they elected in their own organizations? What social philosophy do they share? What views do you share with the world's expectations from them.

2. State-of-the art remote-controlled, unmanned machines which evolved from toys to reconnaissance to sophisticated tools of war. On the other hand these and their menageries are used in rescue operations, and in jobs too dangerous to humans. These machines are called _______________. What country leads in this technology? What danger does this technology pose?  What are the benefits?

3. It is as ancient as civilization itself, and all the time we thought of having conquered it with modern medicine and better living conditions, yet this scourge can develop into a plague in postmodern times.  The pathogen which has developed resistance to drugs is sweeping marginal communities and cities fast and deadly.  What is the disease caused by this mutant pathogen? What solutions can the world do to arrest it from becoming pandemic? 

4. What is the world's most popular game which has been rocked by game-fixing scandal and other anomalies?  Who are the best players in this game that kids look up to, to the point of idolizing them?  Name the top five and the country or team they represent.  Does this game contributed to world peace and understanding? Support your answer.  

5. Rate in their respective fields (Scale of 1 to 10, very poor to outstanding)  Mohamed Morsi, Fabiola Gianotti, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, Barack Obama.  And yourself in the first two months of 2013.~
