27 July, 2008

the week it was, 27 July 2008

A Qantas airline exploded in air while flying back from Hong Kong. ABC correspondent Peter Lloyd was arrested in Singapore on drug charges. US Presidential Candidate Barack Obama was welcomed in Europe. Here's the weekly The Week It Was. As usual, the clip is available in the usual H.264 format. Why do I use H.264 format? See this QuickTime codec comparison page and judge yourself.

QuickTime: The Week It Was
(Click the screenshot above to watch the video clip)

There was an explosion in Qantas airline, the pilots made an emergency decent diverted to Manila. All passengers and crews are safe. ABC correspondent Peter Lloyd was arrested in Singapore on drug charges. He remains free on bail, but faces court charges. US Presidential Candidate Barack Obama has been compared to John F. Kennedy. The heatwave in Japan had forced a chimpanzee breaking out his enclosure. Zoo keepers tried everything to entice Ichiro down. Finally, a simple banana did the trick.

For those who like YouTube, here's YouTube version:

Qantas is still the world's safest airline. Just don't fly that often and you will be fine.
