News that impacted us

Sports dominated the news in 2014, between the long-awaited World Cup, a surprising Super Bowl performance and the controversial Winter Olympics. The mystery behind the missing Malaysia Airlines jet captured our attention as we craved answers to the tragedy and speculated on what may have happened. In addition, the worldwide Ebola outbreak drove headlines this year as global health authorities worked to contain the pandemic.
