An #Outsider Newsflash (Special Edition): On Time Person of The Year 2015

It has been yet again a rather interesting day in our World as +TIME magazine's personal of the year was announced.    We received this newsletter from Time Magazine that we wanted to feature in its' entirety for all to review.

Our view is that Angela Merkel was a great choice because of all she has done to keep Europe together and her courageous decision on the refugees.       We found it unfortuante that they had the #Daesh Leader was the runner-up.    We were not too surprised about the others--including President Rohani of Iran who is dealing with profound challenges inside Iran--including a severe recession that has just hit the country.

Some interesting read here as we're winding down the year:
