Over this past semester, we've covered some huge headlines. We've explored the debate over health care reform, examined the devastation1 caused by a massive earthquake in Haiti, and we've taken you up close to see an erupting volcano. Here's a look back at some of the biggest stories from this semester.

It has now been heralded3 the passage of Obamacare as "historic." They're right, they're right, it's historic. It's the first time in history where a major piece of legislation has been passed over the overwhelming objection of the majority of the American people. It's historic.

Jobs must be our number one focus in 2010.

This recession caused a huge amount of damage, and we're going to be living with that damage for a while to come.

I ran out into the courtyard and began to cry out to other members of the apartment building to come in to the courtyard.

It delivered one heck of a jolt5 and I'm very pleased to have made it through that. It was very scary.

The Coast Guard described a rather grim scenario6, where 11 of the 126 workers are missing from the Deepwater Horizon, which continues to burn out of control.

This is an unprecedented7 accident in the oil and gas industry.

As oil continues to hit our shores week after week, thousands of barrels of oil remain in the water.

The marsh8 gets all full of oil, what am I gonna do? I've been crabbing9 all my life. So, that's all I know how to do.

Emirate says this is the worst disruption it has ever seen.

It's literally10 raining ash. The ash is going into my eyes, it's on the streets. We are south of the volcano, this is the way the wind is blowing in the western part of Iceland.

Exactly how many flyers are stranded11, how long will they be stuck? Half, half of all transatlantic flights are expected to be cancelled today.

Earlier this evening, Faisal Shahzad was arrested in connection with the attempted car bombing in the New York on Saturday. Mr. Shahzad, an American citizen, was taken into custody12 at JFK airport in New York as he attempted to board a flight to Dubai.
