Hello Everyone, just a quick note to tell you that we are taking this week off from the blog. Not only is this Thursday the Thanksgiving holiday here in the states, but your humble blogger's day job is in broadcast advertising, so the work days before the holiday is our busiest and longest days of the year. So, we could use the break from blogging before, during and after the holiday. We will resume regular posting on Monday November 29th, talk to you then!
In the meantime, if we do happen to go on the internet, we will share any interesting items we come across on the below shared items widget. There may be some non-poverty news items on there as well.
Russia EU Ambassador: 'We are not targeting Syrian civilians' - Russian ambassador to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, tells the BBC it is not Russia's intention to target civilians in Syria.
