THINGS GETTING FEISTY

BRAZIL
THE STORY
Yesterday, Brazil’s lower house voted in favor of impeaching the country’s president.
EXPLAIN.
Brazilian prez Dilma Rousseff has had a rough couple of years. She’s been caught up in a massive bribery scandal involving the country’s state-owned oil company. Add to that the fact that Brazil’s economy has been in a bad way for a while. But the country’s been spending billions on the World Cup and this summer’s Olympics instead of infrastructure and social programs. Cue millions of anti-government protesters hitting the streets asking her to leave. She’s said there’s no way she’s resigning.
BUT…?
But Congress begs to differ. Next, the Senate will vote on whether to hold an impeachment trial. If that happens (and it’s expected to), Rousseff will have to take a forced vacation while the process plays out.

This telenovela is nowhere close to over – and the uncertainty will do nothing to help Brazil’s already tanking economy. Which, by the way, is one of the biggest in the world. So what happens in Brazil definitely won’t stay there.

SAUDI ARABIA
THE STORY
Yesterday, Saudi Arabia said ‘hard pass’ to a deal aimed at boosting global oil prices.
WAIT…BACK UP.
For years, oil prices have been dropping like they’re scalding hot thanks to an oversupply in the market and not so much demand (think: things like US fracking and a sad global economy). Great news for your wallet. Bad news for countries that depend on higher oil prices to stay afloat (cough, Venezuela, cough). So OPEC ( group of oil-producing countries ) has been coming up with a plan to cut supply in order to prop up prices. This weekend was supposed to make it official.
BUT…?
But Saudi Arabia – one of the world’s top oil producers and the Regina George of OPEC – said ‘actually…nah’ to the supply cuts. That’s because arch-rival Iran isn’t involved. Reminder: Iran recently signed off on a nuclear deal with the US & friends, which means it can now hop back into the oil market after years of sanctions. Saudi Arabia doesn’t want to cut back on its own oil production and risk losing market share to its nemesis. Geopolitics are hard.

Oil prices have been up recently on news that this deal was on the way. Nevermind. And since there’s nothing the global economy loves more than a fake-out, expect for a rocky road ahead in the markets.

REPEAT AFTER ME…

WHAT PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT…
Ecuador. Over the weekend, an earthquake there killed at least 272 people and injured more than 2,000. The 7.8 magnitude quake is the worst Ecuador has seen in decades. It hit a coastal city the hardest, but the aftershocks destroyed homes and knocked out power for much of the country. Thousands of soldiers and police officers are involved in the search and rescue mission, and the death toll is expected to rise.

WHAT TO SAY WHEN YOU RUN INTO YOUR OLD CO-WORKER AT A PARTY…
Fancy seeing you here. Yesterday, a plane landing at London’s Heathrow airport ran into something midair. And the pilot’s pretty sure it was a small, commercial drone. The plane landed safely and no one was hurt. If it really was a drone, this would be the first time something like this has happened. And it comes at a time when commercial drones are becoming more popular, and aviation officials are popping more Advil thinking about the lack of rules for operating and owning drones. Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, the FAA is expected to roll out stricter regulations for commercial drone use. Giving US gadget enthusiasts just a little more time to drone on, and on…and on.

WHAT TO SAY WHEN YOU INVITE PEOPLE YOU JUST MET OVER FOR DINNER…
Welcome to my house. That’s what Pope Francis said to 12 Syrian refugees over the weekend. He was visiting Greece to call attention to the ongoing migrant and refugee crisis . On his way out, he decided to take three Syrian families with him. Francis has made it clear that he thinks the EU needs to do more to help. A lot of people think this was his way of saying ‘watch me practice what I preach.’ And in other man-in-white news, Francis had a meet cute with presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT). Sanders was speaking at a conference at the Vatican and had a totally coincidental, not at all planned run-in with Francis . For Sanders, it was a chance to remind Catholic voters that he admires the Pope and his feelings on things like income inequality and climate change. For Francis, it was apparently nothing more than a handshake. The Vatican is trying to stay far, far away from the US presidential election. Hollywood, not so much. Over the weekend, George Clooney admitted Sanders supporters have a point about money in politics after he hosted fundraisers for his candidate Hillary Clinton. The fundraiser tickets cost more than your apartment. And yes, he knows it’s an “obscene” amount of money.
