1/ Russian Intelligence chief, popular Cambridge teacher die in "air accident"
In the "Intelligence World" and in politics things rarely happen by accident. In a tragic air crash in Russia (Tartarstan) some particular passengers on-board the ill fated plane were of particular note. Granted Tartarstan Airlines does not have the greatest of airline safety records, one would think an FSB official would be much more aware of potential risks.....
Donna Bull - described as a popular teacher at (Bellerby's College at Cambridge-International Studies) and program administrator. She was on a business trip to Kazan,Tartarstan with her Russian friend and college Yana Baranova (recruitment manager for Bellerby's in Moscow). Both were members of Study Group. A group that assists higher education students that go abroad outside of their own countries to study in another country. Perfect cover for any intelligence group either overtly or covertly!

Twenty-three countries begin setting up swap lines to bypass dollar
"For several years, financial analysts, primarily those outside the mainstream of academia, have been warning that any day could be the black swan event that collapses the dollar, and ends U.S. hegemony as caretaker of the world's reserve currency. That day has finally arrived as on Nov. 18, a former head trader for a major financial institution issued a harbinger and stated that 23 countries, and 60% of the world's GDP, are right now setting up new swap lines which bypass the dollar, SWIFT, and the BIS, and will usher in a new global currency system which will kill the dollar." -full article here
