Twenty cents of a real (roughly 8 cents of a dollar) brought millions of people onto the streets in Brazil in July 2013. Those 20 cents channeled all popular dissatisfaction, directed all anger to the streets and showed the government's ineptitude in dealing with the Brazilian people's problems. Only 20 cents. An increase in the bus fare from 3.00 real to 3.20 real (or roughly US$1.32 to USD$1.40). About 6 percent.

There were only a handful of people in Taiwan who heard the broadcast, although there had been a notice on it on the previous day.

Cambodia, scene of the killing fields of genocide less than four decades ago, has just completed a major step forward. The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) is the awkward title of an important United Nations tribunal established to endeavor to bring justice to the mass murderers of the demented Khmer Rouge regime. The regime, in power from 1975 to 1979, killed at least 1.5 million and perhaps over 2 million of their fellow Cambodians.
