Brazil taps local oil company Petrobras to control development of deep-sea fields believed to hold billions of barrels of recoverable oil.  This way, they will have 62 percent of the new area that has yet to be bid out, forcing foreign companies to be more financial investors,  limiting their ability to set the pace for the oil development.  Nice.

Since 2006, new home owners in 23 states have suffered from odorous batches of corrosive drywall that were imported from at least one gypsum mine in China and used by U.S home builders.  Most of those affected were those in Louisiana and Florida whose homes were built in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.   Damn.  China does it again.  [Global Post]
