  • EU and Mexico agree new free trade pact

    Reuters ^ | APRIL 21, 2018 | Philip Blenkinsop
    The European Union and Mexico reached an agreement on Saturday on a new free trade deal, a coup for both parties in the face of increased protectionism from the United States under President Donald Trump. Since its plans for a trade alliance with the United States were frozen after Trump’s election victory, the EU has focused instead on trying to champion open markets and seal accords with other like-minded countries. The agreement in principle with Mexico follows a deal struck last year with Japan and comes ahead of talks next week with the Mercosur bloc of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and...
  • The 11 cities most likely to run out of drinking water - like Cape Town

    Cape Town is in the unenviable situation of being the first major city in the modern era to face the threat of running out of drinking water. However, the plight of the drought-hit South African city is just one extreme example of a problem that experts have long been warning about - water scarcity. Despite covering about 70% of the Earth's surface, water, especially drinking water, is not as plentiful as one might think. Only 3% of it is fresh. Over one billion people lack access to water and another 2.7 billion find it scarce for at least one month...

    The 72-year-old had been ordered to hand himself in to start a 12-year prison term for corruption. His lawyers are said to be negotiating his surrender with police. Some reports suggest he may surrender on Saturday, others that he will hold out through the weekend. Thousands of cheering supporters gathered outside the building in Sao Bernardo do Campo where Lula is staying. "I think that if the federal police come here now to arrest Lula, they won't have room [to get in]," Lula supporter Joao Xavier told Reuters. ... Helicopters have been circling the metalworkers' union building where Lula is...
  • Brazil Considers Easing Extreme Gun Law, Allowing Self Defense

    Brazil has extremely strict gun control laws and relatively few firearms. It is estimated there are about 17 million firearms in Brazil. Only 5.4 million are legally owned by private parties. 2.2 million are owned by the military and police, and 9.5 million are illegally possessed.  It would take centuries of rigorous enforcement of gun confiscation to reach that level in the United States, if it ever were possible. There are over 400 million firearms in private hands in the United States.  A number comparable to Brazil's 17 million guns and 200 million people would be 28 million guns...

    Forget small nomadic tribes and pristine jungle: the southern Amazon was likely covered in a network of large villages and ceremonial centers before Columbus. Geoglyphs in the southern Amazon are evidence of a once-thriving population. Photograph courtesy of University of Exeter ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Before Spanish invaders conquered South America, sparse groups of nomadic people clustered around the Amazon River, leaving the surrounding rain forest pristine and untouched. Or did they? New research suggests a very different story—an Amazonian region peppered with rain forest villages, ceremonial earthworks, and a much larger population than previously thought. The research, funded in part by the...

    LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn tells Breitbart News he thinks Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s “unbelievable victory” in the final presidential debate against his Democratic opponent was “exactly what we needed.” “I think this was an unbelievable victory for Trump,” Flynn, a top Trump surrogate, said in an exclusive interview. I think this was amazing. He was so on point, so on message. He gave very precise answers. You listen, for those that watched it tonight, you saw a robot-like script coming out of Hillary Clinton with no new ideas. No new ideas at all....

    German industrial group Siemens announced plans Wednesday to invest €1 billion ($1.24 billion) in Brazil over the next five years as Latin America's largest economy strengthens its recovery from a painful recession. The German company said it had signed an accord with APEX, Brazil's Trade and Investment Promotion Agency, committing to a number of projects "to unleash a new cycle of sustainable growth" in the country of 207 million people. Siemens added it would focus on electrification, automation and digitalization projects in the energy, healthcare and transportation sectors.
  • As yellow fever spreads toward big cities, Brazil struggles to vaccinate millions

    With air mattresses and beach chairs tucked under their arms, they began arriving as early as midnight, lining up down the sidewalk and around the corner in downtown Sao Paulo, Brazil. "Make sure you have your vaccination card and your number in hand," a public health clinic worker shouted to those lucky enough to have one of the 300 numbers that would allow them to receive a full dose of the yellow fever vaccine, good for a lifetime. ... Though the surge has largely been in rural areas, there is increasing concern that if people don't get the vaccine, the...

    A group of five U.S. private rocket companies met with Brazilian officials in December. Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Vector are interested in launching from the equatorial Alcantara launch complex. The coastal launch site would offer cost savings by its ability to reach orbits often preferred for satellites. A group representing five U.S. private rocket companies visited Brazil in December to meet with the nation's space agency and analyze the possibility of launching from the equatorial Alcantara launch complex. The U.S. Department of Commerce was informed about the trip, which was organized by members of the private space industry. The group...

Nope, it's someplace else – Colombia and Brazil, which just announced the clampdown on their borders with restricted cards, punishments for illegals, and thousands more border guards, to keep unchecked illegal immigration under control, as thousands and thousands of Venezuelans flee their hellish homeland. According to Reuters: Colombia and Brazil tightened border controls with Venezuela on Thursday as both nations grapple with a mounting influx of hundreds of thousands of desperate migrants fleeing a worsening economic crisis.
