Breaking: US and Cuba seek to normalise ties

Yesterday, 10:42 AM


US and Cuba are to start talks to normalise diplomatic ties in a historic shift in relations between the two countries, media reports say.

American officials have told US media the US is looking to open an embassy in Havana in the coming months.

The moves are part of a deal that saw the release of American Alan Gross by Cuba and includes the release of three Cubans jailed in Florida for spying.

US President Barack Obama is making a statement later.





Long time overdue.  Cuba can be amazing vacation distination plus it's another huge blow to Russia.


I'm calling it now... within 10 years you will be able to take a ferry from Florida to Cuba for a nice vacation.

Russia is officially dildos

16 December 2014 - 01:25 PM

Their currency and whole economy is done and will collapse at any day.  8 months ago $1=30 rubles. Today $1=80 rubles.  Russians did everything they could to prevent the slide and it failed.  Russia economy is now in free fall.  Russian people lining up in lines to dump Russian rubles for US dollars and Europe.  Even tho official exchange rate is 1 euro - 100 rubles, people in Russia buying euros at 150 rubles per 1 euro... because of the demand.



The ruble plummeted into a freefall, losing as much as 19 percent as panic swept across Russian financial markets after a surprise interest-rate increase failed to stem the run on the currency.

The ruble beyond 80 per dollar, a record low, before rebounding after Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev denied speculation that the government would turn to foreign-exchange restrictions to stop Russians from converting money into dollars. It was trading at 68 per dollar, down 5.4 percent on the day, at 8 p.m. in Moscow. Bonds and stocks also tumbled, with the RTS equity gauge dropping the most since 2008.


“I am speechless,” Jean-David Haddad, an emerging-market strategist at OTCex Group in Paris, said in an e-mailed message. He said policy makers need to consider currency controls as “the last solution” to halt the ruble’s 52 percent plunge this year. “What a failure for the central bank.”
