The hopes that some stability had come may be quickly fading in Brazil.
Since early June, protests that began out of anger over public transit fare increases have spread across the country, filling the streets of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and a dozen other cities. Things had been quieter of late before about 2,000 protesters gathered early Wednesday night in front of the street where Rio de Janeiro state governor Sérgio Cabral lives, in the upscale Leblon neighborhood. They chanted “Get out, Cabral’’ to a samba beat, and protested the misuse of public funds, including the use by the governor of helicopters to take his family to their beach house every weekend at the expense of taxpayers.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
