(CNN) –  This week much of the world focused on the presidential election in the United States, so in this post we thought we'll highlight some other stories from around the world.


This week a former oil executive became the new Archbishop of Canterbury.  Justin Welby  will be leading the Anglican Church.  We found this profile by BBC Radio 4 which was originally done in late September when Welby was one of the candidates.  They interviewed some of his former employees and it sheds some light on the kind of leader he may become. 


President Obama will travel to Myanmar this coming week as part of an Asia tour.  His visit is meant to validate the countries move towards democracy.  This story from Deutsche Welle Radio titled "Human rights on the improve in Myanmar"  talks to people in Myanmar who value their new freedoms, but are still apprehensive after years of repression.
