January 2, 2012, Occupy Nigeria protest began in Nigeria in response to the fuel subsidy removal by the Federal Government of President Goodluck Jonathan. Protests took place across the country, including the Nigerian Embassy in London, New York and Italy.

That is a neat one I wonder if this combined with the problems Boko Haram brought to the country
One can hope for change but I hope that change does happen and captivate the people to do something
Then it will be history and an event that does change the world.

We ,the governments,media can still do something about those girls before it becomes history...and an sad even that may not change the world....as many other events from history,posted here ,that didn't changed much  the way the people act today.

Bhola cyclone 1970:- The Bhola cyclone that struck the Bengal Coast in 1970 was the deadliest tropical cyclone ever recorded, wiping out entire villages and killing as many as half a million people. The government at the time was criticized for failing to handle relief efforts and protests led to its defeat in the national elections a month later.

From the same period -Tangshan earthquake 1976: The Tangshan earthquake in 1976 was one of the deadliest earthquakes in China’s history, causing around 242,000 people to lose their lives. The political repercussions of the disaster, however, went far beyond the death toll and damage.

Medical Events that changed the world

18th Century - Homeopathy

19th Century -
Germ Theory or the X Ray

I would say the biggest one is the rise of modern medicine in the 19th Century

For a snicker this changed the world a lot Smiley
Cocaine for children Have a toothache heres some cocaine kids (http://web.uvic.ca/vv/student/medicine/medicine19c.htm)
 
20th Century - Could not narrow it to one

Blood Types - Discovering different blood types allowed for safe and effective blood transfusion

The Children of Thalidomide - Led to safety standards in drugs being increased to see the effects on the Fetus
Saving millions of birth defects and miscarriages

Radium Girls - Female factory workers who contracted radiation poisoning from painting watch dials with glow-in-the-dark paint at the United States Radium factory in Orange, New Jersey, around 1917. The women, who had been told the paint was harmless, ingested deadly amounts of radium by licking their paintbrushes to give them a fine point; some also painted their fingernails and teeth with the glowing substance.

Developed working health standards when dealing with dangerous substances and the effects of Radium on the body
Triggered the enactment of regulations governing labor safety standards, including a baseline of 'provable suffering'.

Before that no real regulations so that is worth noting.

Penicillin - Saved Millions of Lives and also began the modern era of antibiotic discovery.

21st Century

- 2003 – Carlo Urbani, of Doctors without Borders alerted the World Health Organization to the threat of the SARS virus, triggering the most effective response to an epidemic in history. Urbani succumbs to the disease himself in less than a month.

In other words effective dissension of information to prevent pandemics part of a larger contribution to healthcare with technological advancements.

Talking about natural disasters, the Bhola cyclone ranks 5th overall in terms of human casualties. The first place is occupied by the 1931 China floods, and 4 out of the 5 top disasters has occurred in China.  Angry

These are both very tragic and sad disasters, but what happened afterwards that changed the world?

The Great Tsunami
A Tsunami is nothing but a form of oceanic flood, generated by earthquakes that originate underwater. They can generate giant waves that can submerge a whole island. Of all tsunamis, the worst that the world ever faced was the Indian Ocean tsunami of 26th December, 2004.

Medical Revolution

The discovery of Penicillin as an antibiotic still remains as one of the greatest of all medical discoveries. It has cut down the human mortality rate by large figures. Not just health, but the discovery led to a series of other discoveries which have impacted human life. Then we have the discovery of vaccination by Louis Pasteur, which again changed the kind of life we enjoy today. There was a time, when a small cut would have killed a man, or diseases like smallpox were regarded as the ultimate form of divine punishment for the evil-doers. Without these discoveries, the human race would perhaps have long gone into extinction!

The Apollo Mission
Well, of course the invention of the Wright Brothers, did actually fulfil the human urge to fly, but it was actually the invention of space flights, that actually proved to be a “giant leap for mankind!” Commissioned by NASA, Apollo 11 was the first ever vehicle that put man on the surface of the Moon. Though people would normally look at it as a scientific revolution, the impacts of the success of this mission were far greater. First of all, it made the world look at space exploration from a closer and a completely different perspective. It was no more restricted by the observatory walls, peeping through telescopes. A new race started among nations to engineer its own space programme.


Industrial Revolution
In the words of Robert E. Lucas, Jr., “For the first time in history, the living standards of the masses of ordinary people have begun to undergo sustained growth. Nothing remotely like this economic behaviour has happened before.” Be it the discovery of the printing press, or the textile making machines, the industrial revolution, spanning over a century, did change the socio-economic conditions of the masses in a drastic fashion. The era also gave us the precious steam engine and the there was a sudden development in the field of roads and railways. The invention of the Differential Engine by Charles Babbage gave a new direction to the world of computing! Then the invention of the radio and the telegraph changed the way the world communicated. In other words, it will not be incorrect to say that the industrial revolution was one of the events that taught man to do more than just farming and domesticating of animals.

If we look from the beginning of human history, I think that following events changed the world:
- the invention of fire
- invention of the wheel
- iron and gunpowder
- The discovery of new continents-America and Australia
- The invention of cars and planes
- world wars
- space exploration
- The victory of the democratic social order in the'' cold'' war
- Internet
