Russian Ruble Falls as Oil Prices Tumble Further
The ruble looked set for its steepest one-day fall since the Russian financial crisis of 1998, plunging about 4 percent on Monday as oil prices slid below $70 a barrel. Battered by low oil prices and the conflict in eastern Ukraine, the ruble has been declining throughout the year, losing about 42 percent of this value since January. The Russian currency fell for a third day in a row Monday, to 52.45 against the dollar and 65.39 against the euro, hitting fresh record lows. The price of oil, the backbone of the Russian economy, has dropped roughly 25 percent since the summer. Brent crude, an international benchmark, fell 3 percent on Friday and was down another 1 percent on Monday to $69.47 a barrel, following a decision by OPEC last week to leave its output target unchanged. OPEC's shock decision means markets are increasingly pricing in the likelihood of cheap oil for an extended period, causing a fundamental reassessment of Russian asset prices, analysts said. Oil and gas account for about two-thirds of Russia's exports and half of federal budget revenues, making its economy and asset prices heavily dependent on global energy prices. ”In the short term, the Russian market is a victim of OPEC's apparent decision to reduce the volume of high-cost production through lower prices,” Moscow-based investment bank Sberbank CIB said in a morning note. “The market and the ruble will not stabilize until oil does.”   Russian monetary officials sought to assuage fears of a ruble free fall.   Ksenia Yudayeva, deputy chairman of the Russian Central Bank, told Russian news agencies on Monday there is enough currency liquidity in the market and that the Central Bank has prepared new economic forecasts based on a price of $60 per barrel. Some material for this report came from Reuters, AP and AFP.

Uruguayan Ruling Party's Vazquez Wins Presidential Poll
Shared by 1 person
Ruling party candidate Tabare Vazquez has easily won Uruguay's presidential election. The 74-year-old cancer doctor won Sunday's runoff, extending the power of a left-leaning coalition that has helped legalize gay marriage and moved to create the world's first state-run marijuana marketplace. His opponent, 41-year-old opponent Lacalle Pou, had promised to undo much of the plan to put the government in charge of regulating the production, distribution and sale of
marijuana on a nationwide scale. The plan is still in the process of being implemented. Pou quickly conceded defeat after unofficial quick counts showed Vazquez with over 53 percent
support while  Pou trailed with about 41 percent. Thousands of ruling Broad Front supporters streamed through the rain-soaked streets of Montevideo, waving party banners, and drivers blared their horns in celebration. Vazquez, 74, is a respected oncologist who helped heal rifts inside the Broad Front in the late 1990s and led it to power in 2005, ending two decades of conservative rule that followed a military dictatorship. “I promise to work my utmost but I cannot, should not and do not want to work alone, I want to count on all Uruguayans,” Vazquez told party loyalists on Sunday night. When he was president from 2005 to 2010, his mix of welfare programs and pro-business policies helped kick-start a decade of robust growth and slash poverty. Returning to power, he will succeed President Jose Mujica, an ally and former guerrilla whose straight-talking, unpretentious style won him widespread affection in the cattle-farming country of 3.4 million people. “A third Broad Front government will show the world that Uruguay can be progressive and successful, reducing poverty while boasting an economy performing better than ever,” said pizza chef Richar Martinez, 39, partying in the streets with his son hoisted on his shoulders. With official results counted from almost one-third of polling stations, Vazquez had 49.5 percent and Lacalle Pou 43.7 percent. The gap was expected to widen as more results came in. Marijuana law The son of a union leader who grew up in a working class district in the capital, Vazquez closed his first term with approval ratings hitting 70 percent. Like Mujica now, he was constitutionally barred from holding a second consecutive term. Vazquez will need to address rising crime and education, both major concerns of voters. He promises to increase spending on schools while cutting wasteful government spending. He will also oversee Uruguay's legalization of the state-controlled production, distribution and sale of cannabis. Vazquez, who lacks Mujica's folksy charisma, endorsed the cannabis law but was less enthusiastic about it than the outgoing president and has said he might modify it, depending on its impact. Mujica's reforms to legalize gay marriage and abortion as well as marijuana cemented Uruguay's reputation as one of Latin America's most liberal nations, but upset conservative voters. The Broad Front narrowly won a majority in Congress in legislative elections last month, meaning Vazquez will be in firm control when his term begins on March 1.

Robert Biedron wins mayoral election in Slupsk in further sign of growing social acceptance for gay and lesbian people in Poland
Robert Biedron already made history once in Poland by becoming the first openly gay parliamentarian in 2011. He now celebrates another first, becoming the country’s first openly gay mayor.
The 38-year-old’s political successes are a marker of how quickly this deeply conservative and Catholic country has changed in the decade since it joined the European Union. Back then, in 2004, gay rights marches were still being banned in Warsaw and homosexuality was treated as a huge taboo. Since then a growing acceptance of gay and lesbian people has arrived hand-in-hand with a flourishing economy.
