The conversation over at the Scotland thread on how the Scottish vote hasn't made into the news in various parts of the world made me wonder: what exactly *is* in the news around the world? It might be an interesting thing to check.
So, here's an idea: every few days, let's post what is making the news where we are. Let's see what's considered important in all those different places we live in...
When it comes to Poland, the news over the last week (the one I checked, at least), were mostly about the new government of Poland forming after Donald Tusk had been suddenly awarded with the "President of the EU" role. Poland's new Prime Minister is going to be Ewa Kopacz
, the second woman to hold that title. During the last days, there was a lot of speculation in the news regarding the government members Ms. Kopacz was about to choose - and, after the government's unveiling last Friday, the news turned to commenting on her choices.
Also in the news, there was a lot of coverage for FIVB Volleyball Men's Championship
, which is taking place in Poland right now. The location explains why it's being covered so intensely... and, of course, our team plays there. Actually, Polish team got to the finals
In international news, there was talk of the Scottish independence vote. Also, we're getting Ukraine-related news almost daily.
So... that was Polish news last week. What's in the news where you are?
