a new hope for the US, the week it was 9 Nov 2008

There's a new hope for United States and the world. Barack Obama won the US Election to become the 44th US President, and the most noticeably, the first African American US President. America is a country that tells its children that they can grow up to be the President, no black child had really believed that until Wednesday night. Not just the Democrats across the US celebrated Obama's victory, Kenya and a Japanese City called Obama were also excited.
New Zealand also has a Prime Minister last night. John Key and the centre-right National Party won the election, ending Helen Clark's 9-year Prime Minister in the country. Also this morning's breaking news, the three Bali Bombers were finally executed. The Terrorist killed 202 people including 88 Australians in Indonesia in 2002. They saw it as a martyrdom.

Here's the weekly The Week It Was. As usual, the clip is available in H.264 format. Why do I prefer H.264 video codec? See this QuickTime codec comparison page and judge yourself.

History has been made in the United States with Barack Obama elected as the America's first African American President. "If there is anyone out there that still doubts that America is the place where all things are possible, tonight is your answer." The Reserve Bank of Australia dropped the official interests rate by 0.75%, more than expected. Viewed won the Melbourne Cup.

Personally I found YouTube's video quality is usually less than direct video download or streaming, I know there are many people prefer YouTube. For those who prefer videos in YouTube format, here's YouTube version:

H.264QuickTime 7The video clip is encoded with state-of-the-art video codec H.264, which delivers stunning quality at remarkably low data rates. QuickTime Player 7 (free) is recommended for watching the video.
