A Synopsis of The Events in 2011

This was the year when the people of Samoa lost a day. The decision to redraw the International Date Line to the east of Samoa instead of the west meant that the citizens of Samoa went to bed on the evening of 29th December but woke up on the morning of 31st December.

There were natural disasters aplenty in 2011. Firstly we saw flooding in Queensland Australia, and an earthquake in New Zealand's South Island. Japan was hit by an earthquake and tsunami, causing damage to the Fukushima nuclear plant, and precipitating the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl. Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc in the Caribbean, the east coast of USA and Canada. For the second year in succession, Pakistan was badly affected by flooding, then as the end of the year was in sight, Typhoon Washi brought flash floods and landslides to the Philippines.

This was also the year of the “Arab Spring”. It started in Tunisia with a young man setting himself on fire to protest against the ruling regime. This act served to ignite the resentment against the rulers and led to widespread demonstrations and riots leading to the overthrow of the government. This discontent rapidly spread to other Arab countries ultimately affecting Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Yemen, Jordan, Bahrain and Syria. We saw Egypt’s President Mubarak put on trial, and Libya’s Colonel Gadhafi killed by rebels after a short but bloody uprising.

Another terrorist was brought to justice as US President Barack Obama broke the news that US special forces had tracked down Osama Bin Laden to a house in Pakistan and killed the most wanted terrorist who was architect of the 9/11 attacks in 2001, which caused the deaths of almost 3,000 people.

In Norway, a gunman shot 69 people at a summer camp whilst a bomb he had planted in Oslo killed another 8 people. Closer to home, there was more pleasant news as the UK celebrated a Royal Wedding. Prince William married Kate Middleton and the couple were given the title of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Later in the year, harmony was shattered as a peaceful protest about the fatal shooting of  a 29 year old man in Tottenham, escalated to a riot. Rioting and looting spread to several other English cities before additional police were brought in from other areas to bring the situation under control.

In 2011, we lost

  • Sports personalities, boxers Henry Cooper and Joe Frazier, golfer Seve Ballasteros and IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon.
  • Showbiz stars Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Russell, Peter Falk, Pete Postlethwaite, Susannah York and film director Ken Russell
  • And from the music world, Amy Winehouse, Gerry Rafferty, Bert Jansch, Jet Harris, Gary Moore, Dobie Gray, Bond movie composer John Barrie, Walker Brothers frontman John Walker, E Street Band sax player Clarence Clemons, Andrew Gold, Poly Styrene (X-Ray Spex), jazz pianist George Shearing, Nick Ashford (Ashton and Simpson), Jerry Leiber, co-writer of  "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock”, Andrea True and DJ Jimmy Saville.

There was another death connected to the music world. Steve Jobs, the enigmatic CEO of Apple retired in August. His retiral was short lived as he lost his battle with cancer in October. Under his stewardship, Apple fundamentally changed the way we listened to music with the iPod and the iPhone. Against a troubled world economic background, Apple continued to go from strength to strength. The release of the iPad 2 early in the year saw it selling out in its first week. Its appeal was such that The Times of India reported on a Chinese teenager who had sold his right kidney to buy one. The much anticipated update to Apple’s iPhone 4 turned out not to be the iPhone 5, but the iPhone 4S. However, the real explosion in smart phone sales was for phones based on Google’s Android operating system, which had, according to Gartner Research, increased their share of worldwide sales from 17% in 2010 to 43% by the end of August.
