    Advertising is shown at a McDonald's restaurant in Encinitas, California.McDonald's franchisees have a fast order for the fast food giant's new CEO - get back to basics. McDonald's on Wednesday announced that Chief Brand Officer Steve Easterbrook would replace Don Thompson as chief executive after he had held the post just two and a half years. Easterbrook, 47, turned around McDonald's operations in the UK, where he was born, by putting the focus back on its burgers and burnishing consumer perceptions about the company, according to press reports. A cricket enthusiast who earned a reputation in the UK as being funny, fair and a lover of simplicity, Easterbrook will also be a rare McDonald's CEO in that he has experience running other restaurant chains.

    Russian central bank makes surprise rate cut to 15%

    The ruble tumbled following the announcement of the rate cut, falling to 81 against the euro and 71 against the dollar. A day ago, it was trading at 77.6 to the euro and 68.73 to the dollarRussia's central bank cut its main interest rate on Friday in a surprise move aimed at kickstarting the economy which is expected to contract sharply under the weight of Western sanctions and plunging oil prices. The announcement to slash its key interest rate to 15 percent from 17 percent marked the first cut since December 2011. The rate cut had come after the government urged the central bank to help boost the economy, prompting some analysts to accuse the bank of caving in to political pressure.

    A McDonald’s Policy Is Saving More Rainforests Than the Brazilian Government
    Here’s another reason why avoiding chicken nuggets is good not only for your health but for the planet: A new study shows that since McDonald’s and other companies stopped buying birds fed with soy grown in the Amazon in 2006, the percentage of Brazilian rainforest logged to raise the crop has plummeted. “Before the moratorium, 30 percent of new soy came from deforestation, but after the moratorium, only about 1 percent of the new soy expansion came at the expense of forests,” said Holly Gibbs, an environmental studies and geography professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and the study’s lead author. Brazil contains 60 percent of the Amazon, which is home to 10 percent of the world’s mammals, 15 percent of all plant species, and 220,000 indigenous people from 180 tribes. The Amazon also plays a crucial role in slowing climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

The head of the Environmental Protection Agency met Friday with senior Vatican officials who helped draft the document, which is expected to be released in June or July.
