    Negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a 12 nation agreement seven years in the making, were finally concluded a month ago. Yet the Obama administration still has not released the text of the agreement. Not even to Congress, much less the public. But this has not stopped the United States Trade Representative (USTR), the office responsible for the negotiations, from making outlandish claims about how great the TPP is.

    Cuba and US to restore postal service after 52 years

    Cuba and the United States have agreed to restore a direct postal service, suspended 52 years ago at the height of the Cold War.
