The resilience of the hamburger never ceases to amaze. From the bottom-feeder generic burgers of Mickey D’s and Burger King, through the cult burgers of In-n-Out and Shake Shack, up to the hyper-expensive curated burgers of some of our fanciest steakhouses — the ubiquity of the burger is matched only by our obsessive love of pizza, and our near loony need for tacos in every form imaginable.

Sanctions, OPEC cuts push Asia's heavy crude oil prices above Brent

Middle East oil benchmarks Dubai and DME Oman have nudged above prices for Brent crude, an unusual move as U.S. sanctions on Venezuela and Iran along with output cuts by OPEC tighten supply of medium to heavy oil, traders and analysts said.
