''EVERY GREAT LEADER WAS A GREAT READER FIRST. ''Welcome to The World Students Society - the exclusive ownership of every student in the world. 

In the year 2022 -we outclassed and outlasted many a single problem.

The World Students Society- for every subject in the world, thanks most profoundly, the readers and students from the entire world. More specifically, the students and readers from this great nation, America. !WOW! could never have risen in such splendour without their unflinching support.

NOW THAT THE YEAR 2022 HAS GIVEN WAY TO 2023, IS HISTORY, it is right to ask : how would it figure in history books? Columnist Thomas Friedman answered this question two months before the year was over.

Even then he thought that the year had seen a great deal for future historians to take a careful look at it. '' Was it the meltdown of the world's sixth largest economy, Britain, fueled in part by its reckless 2020 exit from the European Union?'' asked Friedman.

''Called 'Brexit','' the British departure had no effect on Europe, but it caused near-havoc in Britain. London saw three prime ministers take up residence in 10 Downing Street. The third occupant of the official residence of the British Prime Minister was Rishi Sunak, a man of Indian origin.

His position at the top of the political pyramid meant complete turning of the table. Having ruled over the Indian sub-Continent for more than a century, Britain itself was now being governed by a man of Indian descent. Friedman continued with his list of events that would make the year 2022 memorable.

'' Was it the demented attempt by Vladimir Putin to wipe Ukraine off the map, which has coupled Russia from the West and led to a havoc in the worldwide energy and food markets?'' wrote Friedman. But there were other questions.

''Was it the near total infection of the G.O.P with Donald Trump's big lie that the 2020 election was stolen - which is eroding our democracy's most cherished asset : our ability to peacefully and legitimately transfer power?''

Although Friedman doesn't include the return of Lula to the Brazilian presidency and the reluctance of Bolsonaro to accept defeat as a sign of how Trump's behaviour had infected many parts of the world, it was one of the way the former US president influenced leadership behaviour across the globe.

The Friedman list of historic events in 2022 included the continuation of Xi Jinping as China's supreme leader and its possible consequences for Beijing's relations not only with Washington but also with the rest of the world.

HISTORY will recognize the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 not only as the defining moment for the recently concluded year. It will have long-lasting consequences. Wars, when they start, promise great change, that has certainly been the case with Russia's Ukraine adventure.

The world at the end of 2022 was noticeably different from when the year dawned. The Russian president would not have imagined when he ordered his troops to move into Ukraine, Sweden's and Finland's swift decisions to join NATO thus extending the Western alliance's border with Russia by many hundreds of miles.

And then did the world finally see its leaders take some steps towards turning the global economy ''green''? In providing an answer to this question, Leah S Stokes, the Anton Vonk associate professor at the University of California, mentioned several developments in 2022 as indicating that without adopting appropriate policies for greening the world, humanity was heading toward a series of very disturbing events.

Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the new Brazilian president, addressed the UN climate conference and said that he would do what it takes to achieve zero deforestation and that ''climate change will have the highest priority in his government.''

In 1979 and 2022 , crises drew the attention of policy makers. When energy supply grows scarce and fossil fuel prices shoot through the roof, governments act. One estimate has it that fossil fuel price increase drove 41 percent of inflation in the U.S.

This year will also prove to be a turning point for Europe where energy prices because of the war in Ukraine also went through the roof. In August 2022, gas in the European Union cost 12 times as much as at the start of 2021.

Private enterprises made large investments in producing energy-saving devices such as electric cars and roof panels.The innovations that are coming with these investments will change human behaviour. This has happened before and will happen again.

The year 2022 saw several advances in the area of technology, especially the use of human behaviour that could be duplicated by robots. This became possible by using what came to be called ''artificial intelligence.''

One example is self-driving vehicles. Another is the ability of AI-equipped computers to produce simple compositions - a development that worries teachers since it would make it difficult to teach students to express their thoughts in their own writings.

In sum, as we move on to 2023, it would be appropriate to remember the observation and advice of esteemed Antonio Guterres, the Secretary General of the UN :

''Child labour is an enemy of our children's development and an enemy of progress. More must be done to end child labour.''
