OPEC enters meeting that could set direction of oil prices

first_img“This is not going to be a decision just based on market analysis and supply and demand,” said Daniel Yergin, the vice chairman of research firm IHS Markit and author of several books on the energy industry. “The geopolitical factors will play in a lot.”Yergin said Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates support the current, tougher U.S. policy toward Iran, Saudi Arabia’s rival for influence in the region, and so will want to support Trump’s call for lower prices. Trump has used Twitter to complain about high oil prices – and blame OPEC – twice since April.Iran’s oil minister, Bijan Namdar Zanganeh, questioned this week whether OPEC is united enough to reach an agreement, and said Trump had politicized the debate over oil prices. OPEC, he said, “is not an organization to receive the instruction from President Trump and follow it.”Other energy ministers, such as Iraq’s Jabbar Ali Hussein Al-Luiebi, have expressed more optimism about an agreement. Benchmark U.S. crude hit its highest level in more than three years in May, but U.S. and international prices have eased since then in anticipation that OPEC will approve more drilling. On Wednesday, U.S. crude closed at $65.74 a barrel, down from a peak of nearly $73 last month, and Brent crude, the international standard, closed at $74.61, down from $80.The U.S. average for gasoline stood at $2.87 a gallon on Thursday. Patrick DeHaan, an analyst for GasBuddy, a gasoline price tracking service, said a middling OPEC increase – more than 600,000 barrels per day – would make it less likely that Americans will pay an average of $3. A big OPEC deal – adding more than 1 million barrels – could cause prices to dip into the $2.60s or $2.70s this summer, he said.Any production increase would help offset a decline in output by Venezuela, an OPEC member consumed by an economic and political crisis, and the prospect of reduced exports from Iran – OPEC’s third-biggest producer – now that the U.S. is in the process of re-imposing sanctions over that country’s nuclear program.Oil demand has been rising faster than expected, pushing prices higher despite a big increase in U.S. oil output. The International Energy Agency, which represents consuming nations, expects demand to grow more slowly in the second half of this year partly due to rising oil prices – but still 1.35 million barrels a day higher than the same period in 2017.Some analysts believe that Saudi Arabia needs a Brent price closer to $90 to cover its domestic spending but is feeling pressure from the United States to head off rising prices by boosting output. Russia may be happy to pump more oil and settle for prices in the $60s, according to Tamar Essner, chief energy analyst for Nasdaq.There are other considerations than dollars and rubles. VIENNA, AUSTRIA – Officials from major oil-producing nations are expected to agree this week to boost output, but just how much they will open the spigot – and the effect on oil prices – remain wild cards.Ministers from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and non-OPEC nations led by Russia are meeting Friday and Saturday in Vienna, and it could be a difficult and uncomfortable gathering. The cartel’s largest producer, Saudi Arabia, wants higher prices but hears President Donald Trump, leader of its most important ally, lobbying openly for lower prices.Analysts expect the group will consider an increase of somewhere around 1 million barrels a day. That may seem insignificant in a global supply of 98 million barrels a day, but critically it would reverse reductions that the same countries approved in late 2016, helping push crude higher by more than 50 percent.center_img If OPEC members and Russia agree to pump more oil, that will reduce global capacity for spare production – reserves of crude that can be brought online quickly. And that poses its own risks.“If the volume of spare capacity goes down then the market gets much more vulnerable to supply shocks,” said Essner, the Nasdaq analyst. “A host of geopolitical events around the world could really stoke prices higher.”Essner is betting that the Vienna meeting will yield an agreement to boost production by 500,000 to 800,000 barrels a day, far below the 1.5 million barrel figure floated recently by Russia’s oil minister, Alexander Novak.Phil Flynn, an oil analyst with The Price Futures Group, expects a deal for around an extra 1 million barrels a day. And he thinks prices will rise anyway.“The market is going to say, ‘That isn’t enough,’ and ‘How quickly is it going to come online?’ That’s when we’re really going to resume the price increases,” Flynn said. He expects $80 crude by year end, $100 by 2020.By David KoenigTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSlast_img read more

Chit fund case Former Kolkata police chief seeks adjournment

first_imgNew Delhi: Former Kolkata police commissioner Rajeev Kumar told the Supreme Court on Monday that he could not file his response on Saturday to the CBI’s plea seeking his arrest in the multi-crore-rupee Saradha chit fund scam and sought adjournment of the hearing.A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi took note of the submission of senior advocate Indira Jaising, appearing for Kumar, and postponed the hearing on the plea of the probe agency till April 22. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM'”Indira Jaising, senior counsel, submits that the counter-affidavit of respondent no. 3 (Kumar) was required to be filed on Saturday (April 13) but Saturday being a holiday for the registry, she may be allowed to file the same today. “The said affidavit may be brought on record during the course of the day. Rejoinder affidavit, if any, be filed on or before April 20. The matter will be listed on April 22,” the bench, also comprising justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna, said. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KThe apex court had sought Kumar’s response on April 8 on the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) plea seeking his arrest in the chit fund scam. The court had, on February 5, granted protection from arrest to Kumar while directing him to appear before the CBI and “faithfully” cooperate in the investigation. The central probe agency has sought vacation of the February 5 order so that it can arrest and interrogate Kumar. “This is the interim application (IA) of the CBI seeking custodial interrogation of Rajeev Kumar. Issue notice. Let the matter be listed for hearing on April 15,” the bench had said. It had also allowed the CBI to file a fresh affidavit regarding its allegations that telecom operators Vodafone and Airtel were not cooperating with it in the probe. In its plea in the apex court, the agency has said the recall of the order granting Kumar interim protection from arrest was necessary “to unravel the entire gamut of the larger conspiracy in the ponzi scheme cases”.last_img read more

US economy grew at sluggish 17 per cent rate in 2nd quarter

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy grew from April through June at an annual rate of 1.7 per cent — a sluggish pace but stronger than in the previous quarter. Businesses spent more, and the federal government cut less, offsetting weaker spending by consumers.The government on Wednesday sharply revised down its estimate of growth in the January-March quarter to a 1.1 per cent annual rate from a previously estimated 1.8 per cent rate.Though growth remains weak, the pickup last quarter supports forecasts that the economy will accelerate in the rest of the year. Economists think businesses will step up investment, job growth will fuel more consumer spending and the drag from government cuts will fade. If so, the Federal Reserve could scale back its stimulus later this year.The April-June growth figure indicates that “the recovery is gaining momentum,” Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics, said in a note to clients.During the April-June quarter, businesses increased their spending 4.6 per cent after cutting by the same amount in the January-March period. And spending on home construction grew 13.4 per cent, in line with the previous quarter.At the same time, the federal government cut spending only 1.5 per cent after slashing it 8.4 per cent in the first quarter. And state and local governments spent more for the first time in a year.Still, government cutbacks have weighed heavily on the economy the past 12 months. Over the past four quarters, the economy has grown at just a 1.4 per cent annual rate. But if you exclude federal, state and local governments, the private sector has expanded at a much stronger 2.3 per cent rate.The “ongoing fiscal drag is masking private sector health,” said Joseph LaVorgna, an economist at Deutsche Bank, said.The weaker growth in consumer spending last quarter was significant because consumers account for about 70 per cent of the economy. And a surge in imports reduced growth by the most in three years.Yet economists say steady job growth should provide enough money for Americans to spend more and help the economy expand at an annual rate of around 2.5 per cent in the third and fourth quarters.Some signs in the report suggest that companies expect demand to pick up. Businesses added to their stockpiles last quarter — typically a sign that they foresee higher sales.On Wednesday, the government also released comprehensive revisions that updated the nation’s gross domestic product, or GDP, over the past several decades. Those figures showed that the Great Recession wasn’t quite as steep as initially estimated and that the recovery has been stronger than earlier thought.The revisions showed that the economy grew 2.8 per cent in 2012, up from an earlier estimate of 2.2 per cent. Growth in last year’s first quarter was revised much higher. And growth in the fourth quarter of 2012 was reduced to an annual rate of just 0.1 per cent.GDP is the broadest measure of the nation’s output of goods and services. It includes everything from manicures to industrial machinery. But the government’s comprehensive revisions included changes in how GDP is defined.Research and development spending is now counted as investment, rather than an expense. So is spending on the development of entertainment products such as movies, music, books and TV shows. Those changes increased the size of the economy by about $470 billion, or about 3 per cent, as of the end of 2012.Pension benefit promises are now counted as income. That’s a shift from the previous approach, which counted only actual cash payments by companies and government agencies into pension plans. This change boosted the savings rate by 1.5 percentage points in 2011 and 2012 to about 5.6 per cent. In the second quarter, Americans saved 4.5 per cent of their after-tax income, up from 4 per cent in the first quarter.Despite the still-sluggish economy, recent data have been encouraging and suggest that growth will strengthen.Home construction, sales and prices have been growing since early last year. Americans bought newly built homes in June at the fastest pace in five years. That’s helped raise builder confidence to a seven-year high, which should lead to increases in construction and more jobs.Overall hiring has accelerated this year. Employers added an average of 202,000 jobs a month from January through June, up from 180,000 in the previous six months.A separate report Wednesday pointed to solid job gains in July. Payroll provider ADP estimated that businesses added 200,000 jobs in July, the most since December.And auto sales topped 7.8 million in the first six months of 2013, the best first-half total since 2007. Analysts expect sales to remain solid the rest of the year.Unemployment is still high at 7.6 per cent, limiting consumer spending. And budget fights in Washington could lead to a government shutdown this fall, potentially disrupting the economy.Federal Reserve officials have forecast better growth in the second half of the year. And Chairman Ben Bernanke has said the Fed could scale back its bond purchases later this year if the economy strengthens. But Fed officials typically put more weight on employment and inflation data than on GDP figures.The Fed ends a two-day policy meeting Wednesday, after which it could clarify its interest-rate policies in a statement.___Follow Chris Rugaber on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/ChrisRugaber by Christopher S.

Les photographes amateurs mis en avant par National Geographic

first_imgLes photographes amateurs, mis en avant par National GeographicChaque semaine National Geographic fait le bonheur de quelques photographes amateurs, qui voient leurs images publiées parmi une petite sélection de photos, scrupuleusement réalisée par le magazine dédié à la nature. Une distinction qui se mérite et que tout amateur désire.Il n’est pas donné à tout le monde de pouvoir figurer parmi la sélection des plus belles photos du National Geographic. Chaque semaine, c’est le même suspense pour les photographes amateurs et lecteurs du magazine, qui ont envoyé leur photo pour qu’elle figure parmi les meilleurs clichés. Et parfois, cela peut prendre des années avant que le magazine daigne publier la photo… Rock Arsenault, un photographe amateur de 50 ans, en a fait l’expérience, puisqu’il a dû patienter plus de trois ans avant que sa photo ne soit publiée dans le magazine. Une attente qui en valait la peine… Passionné de photo, il arpente des kilomètres de routes et forêts pour saisir des instants volés entre la nature et les animaux qui l’habitent. En 2006, alors qu’il se rend pour la première fois sur la Route du Nord, pour aller à la rencontre des caribous dans leur environnement naturel, il aperçoit six caribous courant devant un camion au beau milieu d’une route enneigée. Il s’empare immédiatement de son appareil photo, muni d’un zoom 70-200 (2,8 mm), et s’empresse de prendre un cliché de cette scène unique. La photo fait alors le tour du monde avant de se retrouver, après un long processus, parmi les clichés amateurs du National Geographic. En effet, c’est seulement en décembre 2009, soit trois ans après avoir pris la photo, que Rock Rock Arsenault aura le privilège d’être publié dans une édition spéciale de la prestigieuse revue dédiée à la nature. Mais peu importe le temps que cela a pris, l’amateur qu’il est, est à la fois ravi et fier d’avoir joué au moins une fois dans la cour des grands. “Ce fut toute une sensation pour moi (…). Pour un amateur comme moi, de jouer dans la cour des grands a été une grande fierté”, a-t-il déclaré en découvrant la parution. Parmi les plus belles photos sélectionnées par National Geographic, nombreuses sont celles qui placent la nature au cœur de l’art photographique, révélant ainsi des images somptueuses et atypiques. La dernière photo amateur à faire sensation est celle prise par Aaron Lim Boon Teck, un photographe amateur originaire de Singapour, qui a réussi à capter dans la même image des randonneurs observant une éruption volcanique au moment où la lune se levait.Découvrez quelques-unes des plus belles photos sélectionnées par National Geographic sur Maxisciences.Le 26 janvier 2011 à 13:04 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

La santé mentale ne serait pas altérée par lavortement

first_imgLa santé mentale ne serait pas altérée par l’avortementLa revue New England Journal of Medecine a récemment publié une étude qui établit clairement la non-existence de lien entre une dégradation de la santé mentale chez les femmes et l’avortement.L’étude en question explique que si l’accouchement peut avoir un effet sur la santé mentale des femmes, ce n’est pas le cas de l’avortement. Ainsi, ces conclusions sont basées sur les recherches d’une équipe danoise qui s’est penchée sur le cas de 265.550 femmes danoises, qui n’avaient jamais eu de problèmes mentaux jusqu’à ce qu’elles tombent enceintes. Selon Slate, l’étude sur le sujet a été menée afin de détruire “un peu plus l’idée selon laquelle mettre fin à une grossesse peut déclencher des maladies mentales et montre que la dépression post partum est un facteur bien plus important”.Ainsi, il serait apparu que les femmes ayant accouché ont plus de risques d’être prises en charge de façon psychiatrique après le terme de leur grossesse que celles ayant subi un avortement. Cette étude danoise n’est pas la seule a avoir été effectuée sur le sujet. En effet, Slate rapporte qu’en 2008, l’American Psychological Association avait effectué une étude qui concluait qu'”il n’y a pas de preuve crédible qu’un avortement choisi à la suite d’une grossesse non-voulue entraîne à lui seul des problèmes pour la santé mentale chez les femmes adultes”. Les associations et groupements anti-avortement réfutent les conclusions de cette étude, expliquant que les séquelles de l’avortement sur la santé mentale des femmes peuvent apparaitre plusieurs années après la prise de décision.Le 5 février 2011 à 17:39 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

As we jump into the new year, I wanted to remind you that there are lots of ways to keep tabs on Cheapskate deals:On the web, natch. Bookmark it!On Flipboard. If you don’t already use this app, I highly recommend it.In your favorite RSS reader. Yes, RSS is still a thing. This is the Cheapskate RSS feed.Via the Cheapskate newsletter, which you can sign up for in your CNET profile by clicking the Subscriptions tab or by visiting my CNET profile and clicking Follow Rick’s Newsletter.On Facebook and Twitter, where I often share bonus deals, updates, recommendations and other quick-hit goodies.Speaking of quick hits, coming soon to an inbox near you: an afternoon edition of the Cheapskate newsletter. This is an experiment, and it probably won’t be a daily thing, at least at first. The idea is to provide updates (like when the morning deal sells out quickly or I need to give you a new promo code) and late-breaking extra deals (those that come in after I’ve already published the morning newsletter).The afternoon edition will be short and easy to scan — basically an inbox edition of what I often share on social media. Stay tuned for updates on this, probably within a couple weeks.Pixel pusherOn to business! Have you often wondered whether your next laptop should be a Chromebook? Maybe you’ve had your eye on Google’s Pixelbook, a premium model with a decidedly premium price.

Regular price: $999.See it at Best BuyI’m sure I’m not alone in thinking, “$1,000 for a Chromebook? Um, no.” Because Chromebooks are supposed to be cheap, right? Indeed, many an entry-level model can be had for $200-300.But the Pixelbook is anything but entry-level; it’s as well-appointed as many premium Windows laptops. You get an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 128GB solid-state drive and 12.3-inch touchscreen.That screen delivers an impressive 2,400 by 1,600 pixels, and it resides on a 360-degree hinge, meaning the Pixelbook can handle tablet mode, tent mode and all that.

first_img ‘Storm Loch Ness’ Joke Facebook Event Aims to Spot Folklore ‘Monster’Nearly 300K Alien Fans Sign Up to ‘Raid Area 51’ for Joke Facebook Event Stay on target On the heels of Apple’s Memoji glow up, Facebook is reportedly launching new customizable Avatars—virtual lookalikes for use in chat and comments.Available now in Australia, users can personalize the Bitmoji clone’s face, hair, and clothes, then use it in a range of stickers conveying emotions and phrases.The animated feature will roll out to the rest of the world in late 2019 or early 2020, according to TechCrunch.AdChoices广告Writer Josh Constine admitted Avatars “aren’t quite as cute or hip to modern slang” as Snapchat’s popular Bitmoji, but they could become a trendy way to liven up replies.“There’s been a ton of work put in to this from the product and design perspective to find out, with how many people [are] on Facebook, how to make this as representative as possible,” Avatars communication manager Jimmy Raimo told the tech blog.That means offering religious garb like hijabs and providing a rainbow of skin colors and hairstyles in an attempt to cover all demographics.Initially available in Australia, Facebook Avatars will eventually roll out to users across the globe (via Facebook/TechCrunch)“They’re a bit more realistic so they can be your personal avatar [versus] trying to make them cute, funny, and cartoony,” Raimo said, in an obvious dig at similar fare from Apple and Snapchat.Starting in the land Down Under, users can create their Facebook Avatar by clicking the smiley-face button in the News Feed comment composer or Messenger sticker drawer.As described by TechCrunch, the process begins with a gender-neutral blank canvas, customizable from scratch across 18 traits.You’ll have to build your icon from the ground up; there is no option for Facebook to automatically generate an avatar based on a profile picture or selfie.“We want to make sure we don’t show you something totally opposite of the photo,” Raimo explained. “There’s sensitivity around facial recognition.”Facebook has been working on Avatars for at least a year, trailing its competition; in the meantime, rivals like FaceMoji’s animated masks, caricature-style Genies, and Morphin’s deepfaked GIFs have started saturating the market.More on Geek.com:Facebook Changes Algorithm, Promises More Personalized News FeedFacebook Co-Founder Wants to Break Up FacebookThe iPhone X Can’t Have My Memoji Facelast_img read more

A refreshing perspective on naturescapes

first_imgAt a time when forest fires and uncontrolled felling is fast leading to the depletion of trees in our country, an art show by Delhi-based artist Renuka Varma brings to notice the pertinent issue of environmental degradation. It is her passion for the subject that has led to this debut solo show at the age of 63! As she says, “It’s never too late and one is never too old to talk about what one feels strongly about.”Four years ago, she lost all her paintings to water-logging and it took her nearly three years, after that distressing experience, to pick up the paint and brush again. Renuka, a self-taught artist, is now readying to exhibit paintings done over the last year and half in her debut solo show in the Capital. Titled ‘Shakhein: Another Tree, Another Sky’, the show has been curated by Dr Alka Pande and depicts a refreshing perspective on nature and environment, especially trees. Including nearly 30 paintings in oils and acrylics on canvas, the show will be inaugurated by renowned poet and lyricist Gulzar on March 1 at the Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfRenuka’s paintings not only reflect her passion as an artist but also a deep concern for the fast depleting forest cover in our country. Naturally so, as she spent her childhood in the lush green forests of Mussoorie where every summer and winter holiday meant endless hours spent amidst picturesque landscapes.She says, “Gulzar ji calls me ‘painter bhabhi’ and very few people know that he himself is a great artist. My husband has translated several of his books and one of them is titled ‘Green Poems’. I will be also exhibiting a poem from this book at the exhibition.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”I grew up in the foothills of the Himalayas – the mountains were lush green, there was ample snow in winter, and the valleys were full of flowers in summer. I spent most of my spare time sitting outdoors, watching the changing moods of the forest, and listening to the sounds of nature. I often go to Mussoorie even now and I’m pained to see how the landscape has changed. These forests have almost disappeared as the hills have been vandalized by all of us. I still live in those forests, and relive those monsoon sunsets, the green hills turning pink, purple and gold. In my mind, I touch again those mountain slopes, sway again with the trees, and walk amidst the lush undergrowth of the forest. I have tried to paint some of these memories that refuse to leave the recesses of my mind. The forests are disappearing and this is true for the entire country. Through my work, I want to not only revisit my childhood but also bring back focus on why environment and its protection are important,” she says. Renuka is a law graduate from Delhi University and after getting married to Pavan K Varma, whose foreign postings as an Indian Foreign Service diplomat took her to various countries, she continued to paint what inspired her. It was in Bhutan in 2012 that Renuka lost her paintings and she reveals that it has taken her a lot of courage and “great support” from her husband to be able to debut in Delhi as an artist.As Dr Alka Pande, curator of the show puts it succinctly, “Nature has been a recurring leitmotif in art and literature from the ancient Indian tradition when the Kalpavriksha or wish fulfilling tree came out of the Samundramanthan (churning of the ocean). Thus, through her works, emerges a novel approach to an age old visual language that goes back to the earliest examples of Roman frescoes and the rich murals at Ajanta and Ellora in India. To this she is adding a new dimension with her mastery for portraying movement through her brushstrokes, demonstrating an astonishing eye for dynamism. Amidst cottony clouds and chirping birds, trees in different stages of movement are depicted with vigour and skill.”Speaking of ‘Shakhein’, Renuka reveals that she has painted trees in her more recent works while also painting majestic mountains and flower-laden fields. Interestingly, she uses a bottle and nozzle as her instrument to create a flowing, swaying movement of the trees, while brush and knife also come handy when creating the textural effect on her canvases. Her colour palette ranges from the bright red of a work titled ‘Poppies’ and tangerine yellow of ‘Genda Phool’ to misty whites of Himalayan ranges and verdant green of the forest cover.When: March 1–6Where: Visual Arts Gallery, Indian Habitat CentreTiming: 10 am – 8pmlast_img read more

Home Wasnt Built in a Day

first_img Building Permits Census Bureau Construction homes HOUSING Housing Starts National Association of Home Builders 2018-07-10 Alison Rich in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Share July 10, 2018 570 Views center_img For folks considering building a house from the ground up, they’ll have to sit tight a fair bit before moving in. And depending on the part of the country they call home, that wait could stretch into the double digits, all of this according to the National Association of Home Builders that cited data from the Census Bureau’s 2017 Survey of Construction (SOC).The average completion time of a single-family home hovers around 7.5 months, the newly released survey says. That figure typically includes nearly a month from authorization to start, plus another 6.5 months to complete the construction, it notes.That authorization-to-completion timeline fluctuates across the nation and hinges on geographic location, metropolitan status, and whether the property is erected for sale or if it’s custom-built. From obtaining a building permit to completing the project, it can take anywhere from under a month to 77 months to build a single-family home, according to the SOC.When considering all the single-family builds wrapped up last year, those constructed for sale took the least time: 6.9 months from scoring the permits to ending the job, the report says. By contrast, customized dwellings took the most time, at 12.3 months. Those created by hired contractors were in process for about nine months.A lion’s share of single-family homes built for sale and custom-made ones built on owners’ land launched construction within the same month after securing building authorizations, the SOC said. Custom residences built by owners who served as general contractors, however, had a one-month gap between getting permits and kicking off construction.The average time from authorization to completion in 2017 also differed across country divisions, according to the report. New England netted the longest time (10.4 months), trailed closely by the Middle Atlantic (10.3 months), East South Central (9.4 months), East North Central (8.2 months), and Pacific (8.5 months), the SOC found. Together, these five chalked up an average permit-to-completion time eclipsing the 7.5-month U.S. average. The South Atlantic division registered the shortest timeframe, at 6.4 months. What’s more, the average waiting period from permit to construction launch spanned from the shortest time of 17 days in the Mountain division to the longest of 39 days in the Pacific.Metro-area homes took an average 7.3 months to finish—a full two months shorter than their non-metropolitan-area counterparts. This same pattern played out all over the U.S. last year, save for the West North Central division. There, the average time to completion in metropolitan locations charted longer than in non-metro zones, the SOC survey said.Learn more about the Census Bureau’s monthly housing starts data:Are Rising Housing Starts Really Balancing Demand?
