I have been reworking much of the "future" section, and now have it just about straightened out. The future in general and the near future had been connected to most of the nations in my nations list, but those weren't linked back to it. Adding in those links will be an ongoing project. Next month isn't quite in as bad a state, but it wasn't linked as far in the first place. The "Next week" page is a renamed version of a duplicate of June 2011, which is about when I last worked on the future, and still has more reference to past events than anticipaled and upcoming ones. I'm still working on cleaning that up. In order to keep up with current events, it's necessary for me to stay with the moving boundary between last week and next week.


I have made progress in analysis of the year so far, and I'm further ahead in connecting week 7 (Feb 11-18) than I was in connecting week 6 at this same time last week.  I'm not going quite as far or fast as I was in dividing up events among nations as I was a couple of months ago; I want to make more links to governmental and political affairs.


It's evident that events in the Middle East occupy a disproportionate share of attention in the news. I speculate that this is largely due to hidden religious influence, and the passion stirred by religious belief, especially when mingled with politics as it is in that part of the world.  But that isn't a firm conclusion, not yet, anyway.

The near future has now been reworked to where I want it, at least as far as having the proper subdivisions in place. The events of particular days of 2012 have been analyzed back to Jan 1, which will let me start in on examing last year. I have also reached the point of beginning to use government on the last week, which is a goal I have been working toward, since so many of recent events center around government.

I now have the near future restructured to where I am satisfied with it, although the analysis has a way to go yet.  2012 is now at the point where I have connections to government. I will need to get this carried down to the first quarter, February, and the latest week before I can do much of the analysis I would like to do.

Mostly, I've been using the connections the future to push the development of events of this year. 2012 now has enough nations connected that I have begun linkinng cities and areas of social structure and change, and the first quarter isn't far behind. February and even last week also have some nations connected. January is further behind, but progressing.


The analysis of social structure and change is going to be a bit tricky, because most significant changes require both a broader historical perspective and a more detailed examination of social institutions and culture than I have developed. But I do what I can.

That is, 2012. It's still fairly new. It takes a bit of work and connections before I can get down into serious analysis, and that's likely to take a bit longer. I mean to get serious about government, since the bulk of my news-based references deal with governmental and political affairs, but that may take a while. I am getting further into the rewrite of the "Near future" section,
