Brazil's Scandal-Ridden Oil Company Gets New CEO


The squeaky wheel gets the grease. State-run Petrobras has been at the heart of a huge corruption scandal that many blamed on political cronyism. So its new chief, agribusiness mogul Pedro Parente, says he's putting an end to the practice of political appointments for management positions. Parente, who was appointed CEO yesterday by Brazil's acting president, hopes to restore market confidence in the company, but he's got a deep well to dig out of: Petrobras has $126 billion in debt, more than any other oil company in the world

Brazilian President's Close Ally Quits After New Scandal


Loose lips sink ships of state. Romero Juca, Brazil's planning minister (and acting President Michel Temer's right-hand man), has announced that he's stepping aside after a leaked tape emerged in which he allegedly conspired to curb the corruption probe into state oil company Petrobras. The comments, made before Dilma Rousseff's suspension on May 12, call for a change of government to clamp down on the investigation. Juca's departure may limit the damage, but this could still threaten Temer's nascent leadership - and his ambitious plans for Brazil's economic recovery.

Brazil's All-Male Cabinet Confronts New Rape Crisis


Not even one. Taking over for suspended - female - President Dilma Rousseff, Michel Temer did not seat a single woman or minority among his cabinet ministers. His reshuffle axed four women, including the only Afro-Brazilian. One female judge reportedly declined a post, leaving Temer with the country's first all-male cabinet since 1979. While female appointments are promised, Temer may wish he had a woman now to deal with outrage over a video of a teenage girl who says she was drugged and gang-raped in Rio.
