Man Arrested For Video Taping Barbaric Saudi Arabian Beheading
 In a recent video from Saudi Arabia, three uniformed security officers and a professional swordsman in a white gown struggled to placate a woman cloaked in black and sitting in the street. A Saudi court had convicted her of murder, but she was proclaiming her innocence.

Then the officers stepped back, the swordsman took aim and the woman shrieked and fell silent as he struck her neck with his blade, three times in total. Medics wearing white gloves tended to the body, and the swordsman wiped his blade with a cloth.

Republican Shenanigans

As a politician, Paul Ryan won't listen to 99% of scientists on climate change. As a Catholic he won't listen to the Pope, who's infallible.- The Daily Edge Tweet

Oily Dealings
J.P. Morgan is the latest among Wall Street banks to downgrade oil & gas companies in Asia.

The bank now sees that Brent crude can fall below $40 per barrel in the near-term, “should the oil market not be able to accommodate a 1.6mb/d surplus,” that Brent crude will average at only $49 per barrel this year and $56.8 next, and that the recovery will be a slow U-shape.
