News headlines come and go like wildfire these days, whether you’re looking at celebrity news, local information, or worldwide events and news. With all of the big stories to see, we often don’t know everything there is to know about each situation or lose track of some of the headlines in the news when trying to pick apart something else. So, today let’s talk about the biggest news stories of this year so far and delve into the facts behind the headlines.
Ukraine and Russia
Chances are you’ve seen some news about Ukraine or Russia at least a dozen times so far this year, as the war between these two countries rages on and many other efforts have been involved to try to mitigate or eliminate the conflict and its impact on citizens. So far, thousands have been killed and thousands more have been injured in this war as the fight still continues on.
United States Inflation
What the United States is facing in their economy is something rapidly approaching that could mean huge detriments to citizens within the states as well as countries that rely on the U.S. for trade, tourism, and more. Inflation is at a ridiculous high, the job market has been on the rocks, and all signs are pointing to the country rocketing towards a complete collapse of the dollar.
Rights and Moral Conflicts
Women’s rights in countries like Iran has been a heated topic for over a year now, as protests sprout up worldwide regarding the injustices and inequalities for women worldwide. And on United States turf, rights for groups of minorities like LGBTQ folk especially LGBTQ youth are being stripped by lawmakers across many states, while women’s rights are encroached on too.
Booming Industries – Tourism
While it may seem like much of the news can be negative, some countries and industries are going strong this year so far. Tourism has continued to climb to a high since more restrictions are being lifted regarding pandemic health concerns, bringing new income and economic boosts for multiple world countries. Turkish airlines alone profited over $200 million this year.
