Cuba's medical magicians

Cuba's medical magiciansWhile the US trade embargo imposed in 1961 has restricted life-saving equipment and medicine, it has only made medical professionals more imaginative in their work - and more determined to provide the best care possible.

Gladys Rodriguez, 80, was also saved by quick-thinking medical staff after heart and kidney failure nearly killed her last year. Rodriguez said she suddenly became dizzy and blacked out, waking up in the hospital days later. Doctors said she needed a special blood coagulating drug, but because of the US embargo, none could be found.

Echoes of Baltimore on the streets of Jerusalem

Baltimore in IsraelThe pictures that consumed the attention of Israelis overnight Thursday seemed grimly in tune with those that filled American and international airwaves over the past two weeks: Young men and women, overwhelmingly black and some with their hands raised high to indicate they were unarmed, clashing with heavily armed police.

But instead of happening in places like Ferguson, Baltimore or New York, these confrontations took place in the center of Jerusalem, and the protesters weren’t African-Americans but Ethiopian Israelis.

Bruce Enberg: I'll bet you a Yuan to a Baklava

Yuan First Quarter US GDP came in at 0.2%, which is down from 2.2% in the Fourth Quarter. This isn't really a huge drop in US economic growth as you might think at first blush. When GDP is calculated, exports are added and imports are subtracted. The strong USD is making imports 'cheaper' and throttling exports to euro using countries that must pay much higher prices for US goods.

China of course is right there to sell the exact same things as the US at a more favorable exchange rate, as more countries are simply trading in the yuan instead of converting them to USD first. Not that the US is a big exporter anyway, but Europe does use the US as a 'cheap labor' factory floor. Overall the top US exports are gasoline, fuel oil and petrochemicals. Our chief 'manufactured' export to China remains recycled cardboard.

Israel eases Gaza blockade, hopes for Hamas stability

Israel eases Gaza blockadeSlowly, quietly and under the radar, Israel recently completed a full U-turn regarding everything connected to its relations with Hamas. The same Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who declared the day after the Cast Lead operation ended that he would overthrow the Hamas regime in Gaza has in recent years become the bulwark of that exact same regime.

Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon keep their new policy under wraps for internal domestic political considerations, but as for now, the blockade on Gaza is almost nonexistent and Israel maintains ongoing if indirect contact with Hamas. Israel has no intention of operating to change this regime.
