The week in pictures: October 14th – 20th, 2014

Oct 21, 2014









Last week was another humdinger of a time to be human so if you’ll put your pro-democracy placards down a moment lets take a look at what went on.

The quiet New Hampshire town of Keene saw it’s annual pumpkin festival descend into absolute chaos as outsized numbers of revelers arrived, got drunk, became rowdy and then started a full blown riot. With cars overturned and set ablaze, numerous injuries from thrown projectiles and dozens of arrests, the quiet New England town is now facing wry tweets calling for an end to the culture of white-on-white violence.

Meanwhile the lack of violence on the streets of Hong Kong was brought to an end when police moved in to remove barriers placed across main roads by pro-democracy protesters. This marked a change in stance to the long running protests and may herald harsher times ahead for those protesting in the streets, who, it should be noted, retook their positions later in the day prompting authorities to point the finger at outside influences, a sure sign they’re losing.

In Nigeria the government announced it has come to an arrangement with the rebel group Boko Haram that may see the schoolgirl hostages kidnapped from their place of education earlier this year released back to their families as early as this week. This signaled a massive success for the behind the scenes negotiations that had been rumored for several weeks now, and will be a feather in the hat of Goodluck Jonathan the country’s president.

President Obama on the other hand has had to deal with the American Ebola hysteria that has swept the country after several health care workers at the Dallas hospital treating infected patients managed to contract the deadly disease. He’s appointed an Ebola Tsar charged with taking control of the multi-agency effort to halt the spread of this modern day plague, but with some of the possibly infected having traveled by air and sea since, the media have no intention of letting up on the hype.

Let’s have a look at some of the photos that made the gambling news on BlackJack Champ, last week.
