For example, It turns out it's my mother, which is very weird because she never calls me. “As happened almost everywhere in the Third World, Brazil’s generals, their cronies and the super-rich borrowed huge amounts of money and sent much of it abroad. => Brazil’s generals, their cronies and the super-rich borrowed huge amounts of money and sent much of it abroad, which happened almost everywhere in the Third World.
