Imagine it’s 2004. Martha Stewart has just been sentenced to prison, details of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal are beginning to emerge, and Massachusetts has become the first U.S. state to legally recognize same-sex marriages.

It has long been known that richer countries win more Olympic medals—with the United States, not surprisingly, leading the pack. (Russia is second, and Great Britain is third.)

This Sunday, nearly 10 million eligible Greek citizens will vote over the future of their country, potentially influencing the future of the European Union and the strength of the Euro. Alexis Tsipras, the Prime Minister of Greece, has placed his faith in the Greek population, insisting voters will follow his recommendation and reject the referendum. The alternative is accepting a proposal offered by the IMF, the European Central Bank, and the European Commission, which outlines terms Greece must follow to repay their debt.
