‘Coup’ who’s who: Words matter in Brazil’s impeachment drama

theglobeandmail.com — When protesters took to the streets of Brazil's big cities on Wednesday evening in support of President Dilma Rousseff, many of them wore T-shirts that read, "There won't be a coup." The c-word (or, really, g-word - a coup is golpe in Portuguese) has been ubiquitous in the past two weeks, ever since the Speaker of Brazil's lower house of Congress kicked off impeachment proceedings against Ms. Rousseff.

WhatsApp comes down: How Brazilians are coping without their social-media fixes

theglobeandmail.com — Brazil woke up in a weird sort of time travel - all the way back to 2012 - after a judge ordered a 48-hour shutdown of the messaging app WhatsApp, beginning at midnight local time. WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, is the single-most-used app in Brazil.

Cuba’s capacity limited by few firms, little infrastructure and lots of tourists

theglobeandmail.com — The cobbled streets of Old Havana are choked with tourists these days: sweaty, sunburned tourists from the United States, most of them, who make the rounds of the small hotels in the morning to beg and plead.

Brazil’s cancer mystery: What a rare genetic mutation can teach us about the disease

theglobeandmail.com — One day back when Maria Isabel Achatz was a medical student in the late 1990s, she saw a patient with high blood pressure who mentioned in passing that she had had cancer multiple times. That rang some distant bell in Achatz's crowded brain.
