News - Daily Summary

It is the eve of having a blood moon. In Ukraine tension is still high after another day of protests and government buildings being occupied (some of which were police stations). Russia urges the U.S. to make sure there is no bloodshed. The U.S. accuses of Russia of being behind the protests and occupations. The Ukrainian government has issued an ultimatum to the occupiers, but has yet to act on it. When will Russia have enough and invade? What will the U.S. and E.U do in reaction? So things are getting interesting. Venezuela was quiet (nothing in the western press) and the Wildfire in Chile claimed another life. Nothing new from Syria and the rest of the middle east was quiet. The search for the missing Malaysian airliner now includes a submersible, but no news on finding the plane yet.

In the U.S. stocks rallied on good retail sales news. The Boston Marathon is set to start tomorrow one year after it was hit by terrorists. The state of Minnesota raised it's minimum wage today. So it is following in the same path as California (and look how well it worked there). Nothing else major happened today

It was another day in the calm before the storm.

What do you think?
