Venezuela is recovering after Juan  Guaido's unsuccessful attempt to consolidate power throughout the country and get the military's support.

Brazilian President after 100 days in power, is losing ratings,  and the country was swept by large-scale mass demonstrations due to the reduction of budget expenditures on humanitarian education.
