- N. Korea statement on official's ouster: Who talks like this anymore?
But the implications for the chief victim, Jang Song-thaek, are dire when you think of what happened to those who fell afoul of the North Korean propagandists’ stylistic forebears. The statement carries chilling echoes of Cultural Revolution-era China and the Stalinist Soviet Union during the 1930s show trials. Not since those dark days have we heard such a denunciation of “alien elements who had made their way into the party … gnawing at the unity and cohesion of the party … giving up the class struggle and paralyzing the function of popular democratic dictatorship,” as North Korea’s official news agency published Monday. Jang Song-thaek is uncle to the young North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, by virtue of having married Kim Jong-il’s sister.

- The 'Last Packet of Sriracha Ever Made' Can Be Yours for $10K
This week he put up for sale what he calls, "the last packet of Sriracha ever made." His asking price: $10,000. Except, according to the picture he posted, that isn't the coveted Huy Fong Sriracha sauce. The company claims, however, to have finished that process, according to the Associated Press, so the injunction against Huy Fong may not have an immediate effect on the rest of its production—specifically its mixing and bottling—which occurs year-round. The public fervor surrounding Huy Fong's Sriracha is almost as much about the company's backstory as it is about the taste of its celebrated condiment.
- Exclusive: Russia signs deal to forgive $29 billion of Cuba's Soviet-era debt - diplomats
By Marc Frank HAVANA (Reuters) - Russia and Cuba have quietly signed an agreement to write off 90 percent of Cuba's $32 billion debt to the defunct Soviet Union, a deal that ends a 20-year squabble and opens the way for more investment and trade, Russian and European diplomats said. It would have Cuba pay $3.2 billion over 10 years in exchange for Russia forgiving the rest of a $32 billion debt - $20 billion plus service and interest, the diplomats said. It must still be approved by the Duma, Russia's lower house of parliament. Negotiations on the form in which Cuba will pay the remaining debt are ongoing, the diplomats said, as even $320 million per year represents a large sum for the cash-strapped country, which has labored under a U.S. economic embargo for decades.
