In this photo taken on Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014, Dr. Semyon Galperin speaks during an interview with The Associated Press at Hospital 11 in Moscow, Russia. Dr. Galperin spent a decade in medical research in Russia and as much time in the United States, working at top hospitals and research companies. Despite his expertise, Galperin was recently given a stark ultimatum from the Moscow hospital where he works: Leave or stay on as a lowly hospital attendant. Galperin’s job is being eliminated as part of a sweeping reform in which at least 28 Moscow hospitals are to be closed and up to 10,000 medical staff fired, an overhaul that officials say is needed to modernize a decrepit Soviet-era health system. At the hospital, Galperin is vowing to stay on even if that means working as an attendant: “I can’t leave work because we decided to fight till the end,” he said. (AP Photo/Alexander Zemlianichenko)

FILE - In this Nov. 4, 2014 file photo, Democratic Georgia U.S. Senatorial candidate Michelle Nunn concedes the election to Republican David Perdue during her election night in Atlanta. Many Democrats say the way to recover lost ground in the conservative South is to reclaim the party’s lost identity as a champion of the middle class. Georgia Democrats thought legacy candidates were the answer, but Senate hopeful Michelle Nunn, former Sen. Sam Nunn’s daughter, and gubernatorial challenger Jason Carter, former President Jimmy Carter’s grandson, each lost by about 8 percentage points even after well-funded campaigns and ambitious voter-registration drives.

Lignite is pictured at the Vattenfall lignite open-cast mine in Jaenschwalde, eastern Germany, Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2014. Lignite, as this form of compressed peat is known, is becoming an increasingly important part of Germany’s effort to phase out nuclear energy. It’s also the reason why Atterwasch, a village that survived the Thirty Years’ War, a Soviet onslaught during the final months of World War II and four hard decades of communist rule will soon be razed.

A man puts gas in his car at a Shell filling station with the electric indicator showing a liter of regular gas price, top, at 148 yen, or $1.25, per liter (554 yen, or $4.69 per gallon) in Tokyo Friday, Nov. 28, 2014. A renewed plunge in oil prices is a worrying sign of weakness in the global economy that could shake governments dependent on oil revenues. It is also a panacea as pump prices fall, giving individuals more disposable income and lowering costs for many businesses. Partly because of the shale oil boom in the U.S., the world is awash in oil but demand from major economies is weak so prices are falling. The latest slide was triggered by OPEC’s decision Thursday to leave its production target at 30 million barrels a day. Member nations of the cartel are worried they’ll lose market share if they lower production. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)
