The most obvious and likely risk is Russia not cooperating and retaliating by reducing exports of oil. Moscow can cut output by up to five million bpd without excessively hurting its economic interest. Given the high level of stress in the oil market, a cut of 3.0 million bpd could cause global Brent price to jump to $190/bbl, while the worst-case scenario, a five million bpd cut could drive oil price to a stratospheric $380/bbl.

RIP Internet Explorer
For Jung Ki-young, a South Korean software engineer, Microsoft's decision to retire its Internet Explorer web browser marked the end of a quarter-century love-hate relationship with technology. To commemorate its demise, he spent a month and $330 designing and ordering a headstone with Explorer's "e" logo and the English epitaph: "He was a good tool to download other browsers." After the memorial went on show at a cafe run by his brother in the southern city of Gyeongju, a photo of the tombstone went viral. Microsoft scaled-down support for the once omnipresent Internet Explorer on after a 27-year run, to focus on its faster browser, Microsoft Edge. Jung said the memorial showed his mixed feelings for the older software, which had played such a big part in his working life. Source: Reuters
