News in Pictures April 14 20
Contest Directions: Create images of something that happened in the news during April 14 - 20.
Here's an example of a news story that can be used:
Google announced its first quarter fiscal results on Thursday which far exceeded analysts estimates. After this news Google's stock jumped 20% on Friday restoring $28 billion of shareholder wealth. Friday's Google stock increase represents the biggest one day gain for Google since the initial public stock offering in August 2004 - quite an achievement in the current gloomy days of the economy.
