Obama and Castro shake hands, Zuma... By Stella Mapenzauswa and Steve Holland JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama shook hands with Cuba's Raul Castro at a memorial for Nelson Mandela on Tuesday, a rare gesture between the leaders of two ideological opponents that reflected the anti-apartheid hero's spirit of reconciliation. But the peace and harmony did not stretch to South African President Jacob Zuma, whom the crowd at the rain-soaked Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg booed and jeered as he prepared to give his closing address. Mandela's death at the age of 95 has diverted attention from a slew of corruption scandals in Zuma's administration, while underscoring the gulf between South Africa's first black president, a giant of the 20th century, and its fourth. "But what Zuma speaks, he doesn't live. Posted on 10 December 2013 | 4:35 pm
Uruguay becomes first country to... By Malena Castaldi and Felipe Llambias MONTEVIDEO (Reuters) - Uruguay became the first country to legalize the growing, sale and smoking of marijuana on Tuesday, a pioneering social experiment that will be closely watched by other nations debating drug liberalization. A government-sponsored bill approved by 16-13 votes in the Senate provides for regulation of the cultivation, distribution and consumption of marijuana and is aimed at wresting the business from criminals in the small South American nation. Backers of the law, some smoking joints, gathered near Congress holding green balloons, Jamaican flags in homage to Bob Marley and a sign saying: "Cultivating freedom, Uruguay grows." Cannabis consumers will be able to buy a maximum of 40 grams (1.4 ounces) each month from licensed pharmacies as long as they are Uruguayan residents over the age of 18 and registered on a government database that will monitor their monthly purchases. When the law is implemented in 120 days, Uruguayans will be able to grow six marijuana plants in their homes a year, or as much as 480 grams (about 17 ounces), and form smoking clubs of 15 to 45 members that can grow up to 99 plants per year.

Ukrainian police take back part of... Ukrainian riot police moved in force early on Wednesday into part of the Kiev square where protesters are demonstrating against a government decision to rebuild trade ties with Russia rather than move closer to the European Union. But police stopped operations, while remaining in place, and made no move to pull down tents in the square where protesters have been living. Several hundred demonstrators remained camped there after the initial police action. Police moved in from the northern end of the square after pulling down barricades which had been thrown up across the road by protesters. Posted on 10 December 2013 | 8:44 pm
Mexican Senate prepares to vote on... By Alexandra Alper and Dave Graham MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's Senate on Tuesday debated a landmark energy overhaul bill at the center of President Enrique Pena Nieto's economic reform drive, after the country's two biggest political parties hammered out a draft presented over the weekend. The reform, backed by the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and the opposition conservative National Action Party (PAN), would mark the biggest strategic shift since the world's No. 10 oil producer nationalized the sector in 1938. The reforms are designed to lure private oil companies to either operate independently in Mexico, or partner with state oil monopoly Pemex through production- and profit-sharing, service contracts and licenses. Senate committees overseeing the bill gave it general approval on Monday before beginning a protracted debate on reservations raised by leftist lawmakers trying to derail it.

Colombia's ousted Bogota mayor... By Helen Murphy and Julia Symmes Cobb BOGOTA (Reuters) - Waving banners and chanting his name, thousands of supporters of Colombia's leftist Bogota mayor converged on the capital's central plaza on Tuesday to express outrage at his ouster and 15-year ban from holding political office. Protesters filled Plaza Bolivar in front of the presidential palace and mayor's office in a sign of solidarity with Gustavo Petro, the former guerrilla politician removed on Monday from Colombia's second-most powerful post. Petro, 53, claims his ouster is a politically motivated coup by the right-wing Inspector General Alejandro Ordonez and a sign that Marxist FARC rebels would not easily be incorporated into the political system if current peace talks are successful. Petro's 2011 election as Bogota mayor was seen as proof that politics was the way forward for rebel movements. Posted on 10 December 2013 | 8:15 pm

"When you own or take responsibility for your feelings, you place yourself in a position of power and control." -Julie A., M.A. Ross and Judy Corcoran "That's what building a body of work is all about. It's about the daily labor, the many individual acts, the choices large and small that add up over time, over a lifetime to a lasting legacy. It's about not being satisfied with the latest achievement, the latest gold star, because the one thing I know about a body of work is that it's never finished. It's cumulative. It deepens and expands with each day you give your best. You may have setbacks and you may have failures, but you're not done. You haven't even started." -Barack Obama "I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best. My health is the main capital I have and I want to administer it intelligently." -Ernest Hemingway "The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings." -Okakura Kakuzo
"People care more about being thought to have taste than about being thought either good, clever or amiable." -Samuel Butler "Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable." -Sidney J. Harris "Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge." -Paul Gauguin "I believe that people would be alive today if there were a death penalty." -Nancy Reagan
