Russian Gang Deep in Stolen I.D. Data

 

Russian Gang Deep in Stolen I.D. Data

 

The internet makes it much easier for criminals to steal information, no matter where they are. In the latest and one of the largest cybercrime activities, a Russian crime ring has amassed the largest known collection of stolen Internet credentials, including 1.2 billion user name and password combinations and more than 500 million email addresses, security researchers announced recently. I don’t know how we survive without the internet, but every precaution must be taken. As if we didn’t already know that.

International Arbitration in Miami.  Yeah, we’ve got that.

Beautiful Bogotá Blooms With Art

Betty La Fea could hardly be a more appropriate symbol of her birthplace, Bogotá, Colombia.  Although the city is known for its geographic beauty, its urbanscape gets a much less favorable review.  The gritty city of 7.6 million rarely gets respect for its “curb appeal”, and it often ranks near the bottom in “liveability” surveys, along with being near the top of the hemisphere’s ugliest capitals.  Pobrecita, la fea.  No wonder it produced the classic telenovela.  However, just like Betty La Fea, Bogotá is starting to sport a vibrant local art scene, and her true beauty is starting to come through.  Pero, donde esta Don Armando?

Venezuelan Currency “Officially” Devalued

What happens when you put a bunch of amateur, socialist, economic planners in charge of a wealth producing economy?  Exactly what you think, the economy goes broke.  Case in point, Venezuela announced earlier this week that it is overhauling its foreign-currency system as it hopes to break a cycle of scarcity and inflation that has pummeled the Andean nation.  The moves is designed to restore the country to equilibrium.  Well, when bad people with bad ideas implement bad policy, there’s only one outcome, and I guarantee you it won’t be good.

Sadly, Venezuela’s Best And Brightest Will Do Anything to Get Out of Venezuela

I apologize for sharing these endlessly dour articles about the plight of Venezuela.  At times, it seems as if I’m just piling on, unnecessarily.  However, the truth is, there is simply very little good news coming out of Venezuela these days.  Citizens of Venezuela’s socialist revolution who have grown  accustomed to long lines for everything from bread to buying a car, are now standing in lines for the opportunity to get out of Venezuela.   They’ll go anywhere, countries they’ve never heard of, and they’ll do anything.  The message is clear:  There is no future in the future in Venezuela without dramatic change, the kind that is only seen in a generation.

Perú’s “Keystone Pipeline” Approved Despite Indigenous Concerns

Perhas its own “Keystone Pipeline” issue.  It has its own energy rich neighbor – Brazil — trying to get to a strategic port.  The long-contested expansion of Peru’s main natural gas field has won final regulatory approval despite U.N. concerns that it could endanger Amazon tribes living in voluntary isolation in pristine jungles.  Our insatiable appetite for fossil fuels dictates when you consider the needs of emerging economies.  And that is the world we live in.
