The 4th of July celebrations in America have come and passed. The summer of 1993 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. In America, the song "That's The Way Love Goes" by Janet Jackson is at the top of the singles charts, while "Dreams" by Gabrielle is the number-one song in the UK.

Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Jurassic Park is at the top of the box office. John Major is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Texting is not a thing yet. Instead, people are using landline phones and pagers. Furthermore, most people have never heard of the Internet.

A civil war is taking place in the African country of Rwanda. In fashion, many of the trends from the late 1980s are still in vogue. Colored tights, denim overalls, leotards, flannel shirts, and shoulder pads are all fashionable at the moment. Grunge fashion has also become mainstream, popularizing band t-shirts, ripped jeans, mom jeans, and Doc Martens. A war is continuing to rage in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Meanwhile, in technology news, a relatively new storage format called the CD is beginning to outpace the regular cassette tape in music sales. The disc-based format gives listeners the ability to skip between songs instead of having to manually rewind and forward. A playing discs game called "Pogs" is currently spreading in popularity throughout the world. It's 1993, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Meat Loaf, UB40, Snow, Haddaway, Whitney Houston, Take That, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey.

In Turkey, 37 people have lost their lives at a hotel fire in Sivas, Turkey.
