From the inauguration of Donald Trump to the first total solar eclipse to traverse the Lower 48 in nearly a century, 2017 was a year for the history books. Here we review the biggest news in politics, culture and science this year.


Trump’s inauguration: After a divisive election season, Donald Trump officially became the 45th President of the United States on January 20, 2017. In a 16-minute inaugural address (the shortest since Jimmy Carter‘s in 1977), Trump repeated his “America First” campaign slogan in which he delivered a dark-toned nationalist, populist message.

The slogan “America First” has its origins in the America First Committee, a group founded in 1940 to oppose U.S. involvement in World War II that was often characterized by its anti-Semitic, pro-fascist rhetoric.

In his address, Trump embraced the legacy of Andrew Jackson, America’s seventh president, and the first to win on an “anti-establishment” populist platform.

Tough talk on immigration: Shortly after taking office in January, President Trump sought to make good on his “America First” campaign promise by imposing a series of contentious travel bans on citizens from several Muslim-majority nations.

Federal district courts struck down implementation of the bans, though a Supreme Court ruling in December 2017 reversed the lower courts’ decisions, allowing the administration to fully implement the bans.

Trump also continued to promote his election campaign idea of a border wall with Mexico that he says will help quell illegal immigration from Mexico and points south.

Russia’s election meddling: The Office of the Director of National Intelligence reported in January 2017 that the Russian government had ordered an influence campaign aimed at the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

In March, FBI director James Comey announced that the FBI was investigating election hacks and links between the Trump campaign and Russia. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the head of the United States Department of Justice, recused himself from any investigation into the President’s campaign amid questions over his contact with the Russian ambassador in 2016.

President Trump fired Comey in May, making Comey just the second FBI director ever to be dismissed by the President. (The first was William S. Sessions, who was fired by President Bill Clinton in 1993 after being accused of tax evasion.)

Later in May, the FBI announced a special counsel, led by former FBI director Robert Mueller, to investigate any coordination between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.

Fights over Obamacare: Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate sparred over whether to repeal President Obama’s signature Affordable Care Act.

The GOP, in control of both the House and Senate for the first time since 2006, made it a legislative priority to dismantle the healthcare bill, yet a series of Republican plans to repeal and replace the legislation ultimately failed.

Rohingya refugee crisis: In late August, Myanmar stepped up attacks against the Rohingya, a mostly Muslim ethnic minority in Buddhist-majority Myanmar, in what a United Nations commissioner called a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing.” As a result, more than 600,000 Rohingya refugees fled across the border into neighboring Bangladesh, leading to a humanitarian crisis in that country.

North Korean missile launch: North Korea launched a ballistic missile over Japan in August, stepping up tensions between Pyongyang and Washington. North Korean state media said the launch was a prelude to more military actions aimed at the U.S. territory of Guam, a small island in the Western Pacific home to two U.S. military bases.

U.S.-backed forces take Raqqa: After a four-month fight, the ISIS “capital” of Raqqa fell to a U.S.-backed coalition of Syrian forces, ending three years of ISIS control in the Syrian city. The defeat carried symbolic weight as the second major loss of territory for the Islamic State in three months. In July, ISIS troops were pushed out of the Iraqi city of Mosul.


Women’s rights: In January, the Women’s March on Washington, which advocated for policies regarding women’s rights and other issues, became one of the largest single-day demonstrations in U.S. history.

The Washington Post estimated that more than 5 million people may have attended 653 marches in U.S. cities, rivaling participation in the Vietnam War Moratorium Days of 1969 and 1970.

Later, women of the #MeToo movement, a social media campaign to raise awareness about sexual harassment and assault, would be named Time magazine’s Person of the Year, after helping take down a number of pop culture’s most powerful men.

Super Bowl comeback: The New England Patriots mounted the largest comeback in Super Bowl history to beat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime after trailing by 25 points in the third quarter.

NFL anthem protests: During the 2017 football season, several National Football League players remained kneeling during the national anthem in silent protest of racial bias, violence and profiling by police forces around the country. President Trump attacked the players on Twitter, sparking a further wave of protest by NFL players.

Snapchat IPO: In one of the biggest and most highly anticipated U.S. market debuts in recent years, the image messaging service Snapchat began trading publicly on the New York Stock Exchange in March. After the IPO, Snapchat stocks rose from $17 to $27 in its first two days of trading, before falling 30 percent in subsequent weeks.

“Fake” news: In September, Facebook announced that they had shut down nearly 500 fake “troll” accounts and pages created by Russian company the Internet Research Agency. The Russian company, linked to the Kremlin, purchased more than 3,000 divisive ads on hot-button social issues during and after the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.

Confederate monuments fall: White supremacists marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August to protest the city’s plan to remove a statue of Confederate Army commander Robert E. Lee. One woman was killed and many more injured while protesting the white nationalist rally.

In the wake of Charlottesville, monuments of Lee, “Stonewall” Jackson and other confederate figures were removed from public spaces around the country.

Las Vegas shooting: On October 1, gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on the Las Vegas Strip from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay Hotel.

Paddock killed 58 people and wounded more than 500. News outlets called it the deadliest mass shooting in recent American history. The shooting reignited debate about gun control and Second Amendment rights.

Health, Science and Environment

Opioid epidemic: Public health officials announced that drug overdoses have become the leading cause of death for Americans under age 50, with more than two-thirds of those deaths coming from opioid painkillers. President Trump declared the opioid crisis a “public health emergency” in October.

Artificial intelligence: Facebook’s artificial intelligence (AI) research program announced over the summer that its “chatbots” not only developed their own language, but also figured out a way to deceive the humans. This prompted a social media scuffle between tech billionaire Elon Musk and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg over the potential dangers of AI.

Pipeline protests squelched: Shortly after taking office, Donald Trump signed orders clearing the way for the controversial Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines. The move was an effort to expand U.S. energy infrastructure and rollback Obama-era environmental regulations.

Paris climate agreement: The Trump administration delivered official notice in August that the United States would stop participating in the Paris Agreement on climate change.

The Paris Agreement, which was negotiated by 196 countries in 2015, details the steps each country will take to respond to the threat of global climate change.

Syria announced in November that it would join the landmark pact, leaving the United States the planet’s lone holdout.

Record-setting hurricane season: The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, which included 17 named storms and 10 hurricanes, may go down as the costliest hurricane season ever. In the United States alone, hurricanes caused more than $2 billion in 2017.

In August, Hurricane Harvey slammed the Gulf Coast of Texas, dropping more than 50 inches of rain on Houston. A few weeks later, Hurricane Irma, which destroyed more than 95 percent of the buildings on the tiny Caribbean island of Barbuda before steamrolling the Florida Keys, became the most intense hurricane to make U.S. landfall since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico in late September, leaving large swaths of the U.S. commonwealth without electricity for months.

Wildfires across the globe: In the western United States, Canada and Alaska, wildfires scorched millions of acres in a devastating wildfire season (only 2015 had worse wildfires). Fires also raged across Chile, South Africa, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand and—somewhat ironically—Greenland, where peat and permafrost are drying out because of climate change.

Solar eclipse: On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse crossed the United States from coast to coast, the first total solar eclipse to do so since 1918. The next total solar eclipse visible from the U.S. mainland will take place in 2024.

Tiger Squad Edit

According to the Middle East Eye, an assassination campaign against critics of the monarchy was carried out in parallel to the overt arrests of the purge, by the Tiger Squad, which was formed in 2017 and as of October 2018 [update] , consisted of 50 secret service and military personnel. The group members were recruited from different branches of the Saudi forces, directing several areas of expertise. The Tiger Squad allegedly assassinates dissidents using varying methods, such as planned car and aircraft accidents, house fires, and poisoning at hospitals under the pretenses of regular health checkups. The five-member squad were also the part of the 15-member death squad who assassinated Jamal Khashoggi. According to the sources, bin Salman chose silent murder instead of arrest as the method of repression due to the fact that only arresting the dissidents sparks international pressures for releasing them, whereas silent murder covers it up quietly. Prince Mansour bin Muqrin died under mysterious circumstances, allegedly assassinated when his personal aircraft was shot down as he fled the country - made to appear as merely an accident. Meshal Saad al-Bostani, a member of the Tiger Squad and a lieutenant in the Saudi airforce was allegedly behind the murder, but he himself was also later murdered by poison, but reported to have died as a result of a car accident. Another victim was Suliman Abdul Rahman al-Thuniyan, a Saudi court judge who was murdered by injection of a deadly virus when he visited a hospital for a regular health checkup. This took place after he had opposed bin Salman's 2030 Economic Vision. [18]

Corruption Edit

King Salman stated that the anti-corruption committee need to "identify offences, crimes and persons and entities involved in cases of public corruption". He also referred to the "exploitation by some of the weak souls who have put their own interests above the public interest, in order to illicitly accrue money". [19] [17]

Extremism Edit

On 24 October 2017 Mohammad bin Salman who ordered the arrests, told investors in Riyadh that "We are returning to what we were before, a country of moderate Islam that is open to all religions and to the world". He also pledged to counter "extremism very soon". [20]

A Yahoo bombshell

Parent company Verizon ( VZ ) announced in October that every one of Yahoo's 3 billion accounts was hacked in 2013 -- three times what was first thought.

In November, former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer told Congress that the company only found out about the breach in 2016, when it reported that 1 billion accounts were hacked.

The company still does not know who was responsible.

Separately, a Canadian hacker pleaded guilty this year to his role in another major Yahoo security breach from 2014. That one compromised 500 million Yahoo accounts. He will be sentenced in February.

2017 Events of the Year

  • The French General Election in April saw Marine Le Pen taken center stage, with the markets in somewhat of a panic over whether France could be next to head for the EU exit door. Macron eventually came out on top in the 2 nd round ahead of which the market tensions had already eased. Europe had managed to dodge another anti-EU political shift, with the Dutch and German elections also supporting the mainstream governments.
  • Theresa May’s Snap General Election on 8 th June 2017 was perhaps the Prime Minister’s gravest error since taking over from David Cameron in the wake of the EU Referendum. The Tories lost their majority in a hung parliament that saw May have to turn to the DUP to form a coalition government.
  • The U.S Tax Reform Bill was finally signed by the U.S President on 22 nd December 2017. While the actual event in the Oval Office had little impact on the markets, the passage of the bill and tax bill chatter through the year were of influence. Trump’s failure to repeal the Obamacare bill had raised doubts about the President’s ability to garner the necessary support to push through much talked about growth policies.
  • Catalonia General Election vote 21 st December 2017 saw the European equity markets take a hit. Following the Independence Referendum in October that had also weighed on the markets, concerns over independence and internal conflict have been on the rise, with the Catalan region accounting for a significant proportion of Spain’s economy.
  • North Korea’s missile tests certainly tested the markets’ resolve. The first of the intercontinental ballistic missile tests came on 4 th July, which put the U.S in range. While the tests were not on any nation, one flying over Japan was perhaps the most threatening. The greater concern was a possible strike by the U.S in response to threats from the North Korean leader, with China also getting involved, saying that China would intervene in the event of a U.S first strike.
  • Capitol Hill Chatter was relentless throughout the year. FBI Director James Comey’s sacking in May led to the appointment of former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election. Special Counsel Mueller’s ongoing investigations into the U.S President’s election campaign took a lot of the spotlight, particularly as Mueller got ever closer to the President himself, following an uncovering of son-in-law Kushner and former national security advisor Michael Flynn’s lies. Trump tweets, talks of trade tariffs, the threat of imposing fresh sanctions on Iran, the response to the Charlottesville violence and his failures to deliver on certain policy pledges were also of influence.
  • Terrorist Attacks were aplenty in 2017 as ISIS stepped up its war against the West while facing defeat in the Middle East. The markets responded to the more significant attacks, which included the Istanbul Nightclub shooting on New Year’s Eve, multiple attacks in the UK, including two in Central London. Attacks also took place in France and Germany and even the U.S, with the Las Vegas shooting. There were reportedly 1,099 terrorist attacks killing 7,455 people in 2017 according to Esri.

With Cboe’s Volatility Index sitting at close to record lows throughout 2017, there are expectations for this to pick up, which could see the markets become more sensitive to major events over the coming year and lead to lengthier declines than seen through 2017. The first real test may come from Italy’s General Election in March, with Italian equities having already taken a hit upon the announcement.

Harvey was the strongest hurricane to hit the United States since Hurricane Wilma in 2005 and the fiercest to strike southeast Texas since 1961. The heaviest rainfall total was more than 60 inches in Nederland, Texas, from Aug. 24 to Sept. 1, according to Houston was flooded with more than 35 inches of rain. Officials estimated that 70 percent of Harris County, including Houston, was flooded by at least 1.5 feet of water, swamping more than 136,000 structures by Aug. 31.

While You Are Ringing In The Summer, Don't Forget To Remember The Importance Of What We Have Off For.

Home of the free because of the brave.

"The American flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies from the last breath of each solider who died protecting it."

On this present day in America, we currently have over 1.4 million brave men and women actively listed in the armed forces to protect and serve our country.

Currently there is an increased rate of 2.4 million retiree's from the US military

Approximately, there has been over 3.4 million deaths of soldiers fighting in wars.

Every single year, everyone look's forward to Memorial Day Weekend, a weekend where beaches become overcrowded, people fire up them grills for a fun sunny BBQ, simply an increase of summer activities, as a "pre-game" before summer begins.

Many American's have forgot the true definition of why we have the privilege to celebrate Memorial Day.

In simple terms, Memorial Day is a day to pause, remember, reflect and honor the fallen who died protecting and serving for everything we are free to do today.

Thank you for stepping forward, when most would have stepped backwards.

Thank you for the times you missed with your families, in order to protect mine.

Thank you for involving yourself, knowing that you had to rely on faith and the prayers of others for your own protection.

Thank you for being so selfless, and putting your life on the line to protect others, even though you didn't know them at all.

Thank you for toughing it out, and being a volunteer to represent us.

Thank you for your dedication and diligence.

Without you, we wouldn't have the freedom we are granted now.

I pray you never get handed that folded flag. The flag is folded to represent the original thirteen colonies of the United States. Each fold carries its own meaning. According to the description, some folds symbolize freedom, life, or pay tribute to mothers, fathers, and children of those who serve in the Armed Forces.

As long as you live, continuously pray for those families who get handed that flag as someone just lost a mother, husband, daughter, son, father, wife, or a friend. Every person means something to someone.

Most Americans have never fought in a war. They've never laced up their boots and went into combat. They didn't have to worry about surviving until the next day as gunfire went off around them. Most Americans don't know what that experience is like.

However, some Americans do as they fight for our country every day. We need to thank and remember these Americans because they fight for our country while the rest of us stay safe back home and away from the war zone.

Never take for granted that you are here because someone fought for you to be here and never forget the people who died because they gave that right to you.

So, as you are out celebrating this weekend, drink to those who aren't with us today and don't forget the true definition of why we celebrate Memorial Day every year.

"…And if words cannot repay the debt we owe these men, surely with our actions we must strive to keep faith with them and with the vision that led them to battle and to final sacrifice."

List of Order of the Arrow national events

The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is a multi-day event which usually takes place on a university campus east of the Mississippi River, bringing together thousands of delegates from Order of the Arrow lodges around the nation for training and activities.

NOACs are held every two years, with exceptions made to align the event with significant anniversaries. In particular, the deferral from 2008 to 2009 aligned the schedule with the Order of the Arrow's 100th anniversary in 2015 and avoided a conflict with the 2010 National Scout Jamboree (which was similarly deferred from 2009 to align its schedule with the Boy Scouts of America's 100th anniversary in 2010). Similarly, the deferrals from 1985 to 1986 and from 1960 to 1961 aligned the schedule with the OA's 75th and 50th anniversaries in 1990 and 1965, respectively.

In 1927, the decision was made to hold regional meetings in alternate years to national Grand Lodge Meetings. The Grand Lodge Meeting was delayed from 1935 to 1936 to avoid a conflict with the planned 1935 National Jamboree. [a] In 1936, the event name was changed to National Lodge Meeting.

    Here I look at all the enthusiastic comments, and I can not understand - or is it me behind the times, or is everyone crazy? No, what is written perfectly, the original style is visible - I will not argue with that, it is. But as for the content itself - why describe it? Although many are interested: Probably, I do not understand something.
