Turkey finds itself between two fires: President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his central bankers have no doubt been watching events unfold in Argentina, which has raised its benchmark rate by 32.25 percentage points since late April to 60 percent, including a 15 basis-point hike on Aug. 31, only to see the peso slump to fresh record lows.

A Missouri poacher (người săn trộm/câu trộm; người xâm phạm (quyền lợi của người khác)) involved in the illegal killing of “several hundred deer” over three years, taking their heads and leaving their bodies to rot (mục nát, thối rữa), must watch the Disney classic “Bambi” once a month while he remains behind bars (sau song sắt), a judge reportedly ruled.

David Berry Jr. was one of three men from a southwest Missouri family convicted in what the state’s Conservation Department called one of its “largest conservation cases involving the illegal taking of deer.”

After pleading guilty, Berry Jr. was sentenced to one year in jail in Lawrence County on Dec. 6. The 29-year-old was also sentenced to 120 days in jail in a nearby county for a felony (trọng tội (giết người, cưỡng bức)) firearms probation (tù treo, án treo) violation.
