What's happened in the world this week?

I saw this excellent site a while back, but have just been reminded about it on a geography forum...

Earthweek - A Diary of the Planet has a clickable map with information about the natural and environmental events that have occurred during the week... For example, this week, there have been earthquakes in Greece, Italy, India and Taiwan (amongst other places)... And, if you think it's cold here, spare a thought for the people of Oymyakon in Siberia - temperatures of -52oC were recorded there this week!
