Hillary Clinton and President Obama are having a private lunch Monday at the White House. Oh, to be a fly on the wall. Here are some ideas on what they'll discuss.
While the poles are shifting away from the Middle East in terms of oil production, global economic concerns and conditions remained anchored solidly to the region, Graeber writes.
Usually apolitical Al Azhar University encouraged dialogue as major anti-Morsi protests loom. The military is also watching closely.
The Brazil protests follow those in Turkey and India, all three developing countries with established democracies. While the sparks for the protests differ, the theme is the same: Fix democracy; don't replace it.
Ongoing protests have forced the closure of two export terminals and an entire oil field in Libya, causing a drop in the country's oil production. Gains in production elsewhere may mean a long road ahead for oil in Libya.
