Week in pictures: September 30 – October 06, 2014

Oct 7, 2014











Past week was full of action and it seemed to have its epicenter in Asia.

Another volcano erupted, releasing ashes and smoke in Japan. It is here that the youngest F1 pilot (Max Verstappen, age 17) made his debut, at the Japanese Grand Prix but that also ended up in smoke. Some smoke is to be expected form Hong Kong as people started a fiery ‘occupy’ movement. From up far it seems that something is smouldering in North Korea for sure since Kim Jong-un looks like he has vanished.
The western world had some news of its own; another Ebola case has hit US and Lindsay Lohan hit the stage again, this time in a theater in London. Sweden made headlines with first baby born from a transplanted womb.

But how were the past seven days in gambling? Blackjack Champ has pictures, so… come, take a look!
