Every week in the year has good history in it somewhere, if you go back far enough. The week of July 5 through July 11 has seen some very important moments in the past decades and centuries, involving music, pop culture, sports and significant world events. Here are some of the highlights.
Over the weekend, North Korea celebrated the 100th anniversary of the birth of North Korea founder Kim Il-sung.The event marked the first public speech of current leader Kim Jong-Un, Il-sung’s grandson and son of late leader Kim Jong-il. Jong-Un in his speech vowed to push for “final victory” for his impoverished state, despite a failed missile launch. The launch has been condemned by the UN Security Council, which has concerns about North Korea’s capabilities in missile technology and nuclear weapons.
