Traditional quiz for your first lesson in 2014
For some reason I had a hard time coming up with news items for this year's quiz.

There were lots of deaths though, which is reflected in the questions, and while we're on the topic I'd like to mention that our field has also lost three notable figures in 2013: Leo Van Lier, Earl Stevick and Dave Willis (see my tribute HERE)
