Qatar Withdrawing from OPEC to Focus on Natural Gas

first_imgQatar, the first Gulf country to leave the group of oil-producing countries, joined the organization in 1961, one year after OPEC was established.“The news should not come as a huge surprise. Qatar is OPEC’s smallest Middle East oil producer, and the group’s fifth smallest producer overall. Its total 2018 oil production is estimated at 600,000-650,000 barrels per day, less than 2% of OPEC’s oil output,” Lynn Morris-Akinyemi, research analyst, MENA upstream, at Wood Mackenzie, said.It is therefore expected that the country’s exit would not affect the volume of oil supply in the market during 2019 or risk OPEC’s goal of reducing output next year, according to Ann-Louise Hittle, vice president, macro oils.World Maritime News Staff zoomlllustration.

Stocks push higher in Toronto while US stock markets step lower

first_imgTORONTO – The renewed prospect of a trade war between the United States and China caused American stock markets to slump on Monday, but Canada’s main stock index diverged by closing higher after getting a boost from gold, materials and the cannabis-heavy health-care sectors.Rumours about the Coca Cola Company being interested in talks with Aurora Cannabis Inc. to develop pot-infused drinks caused a halo effect for the country’s cannabis sector, said Craig Fehr, Canadian markets strategist for Edward Jones.The S&P/TSX composite index was up 68.82 points to 16,082.31, after reaching a high of 16,117.95 on 222.7 million shares traded.The health-care sector led by gaining 4.58 per cent on the day as Aurora Cannabis gained nearly 17 per cent and Canopy Growth Corp. was in positive territory.“The lift in gold prices and the lift in the health-care sector domestically is kind of carrying the day for the TSX,” Fehr said in an interview.While uncertainty over NAFTA talks have affected markets and the Canadian dollar in the past, the focus Monday was on uncertainty over relations between the world’s two largest economies.“Those trade tensions for today are centred on the U.S. and China. As we progress not only through this week but over the next coming weeks I think that the conversation for the domestic markets is really going to centre around any progress or lack thereof with NAFTA talks,” he said.Investors reacted to speculation that the Trump administration is preparing to impose tariffs on another $200 billion worth of Chinese goods.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 92.55 points to 26,062.12. The S&P 500 index was down 16.18 points to 2,888.80, while the Nasdaq composite was down 114.25 points to 7,895.79.“We’re still a long, long way away from this being officially a trade war but clearly in terms of some of the rhetoric in the news about potential tariffs being a negotiating tactic we’re starting to see that the U.S. and China are calling each other’s bluff to an extent and we’re inching closer to potentially slightly larger tariffs on a bigger pool of goods,” said Fehr.Technology stocks also moved lower as they often do whenever the mood around the international environment sours.The Canadian dollar averaged traded at an average of 76.81 cents US compared with an average of 76.73 cents US on Friday.The October crude contract was down eight cents at US$68.91 per barrel.“Any time we’re talking about potential disruptions to global economic activity and global trade we’re going to see a commodity like crude oil bear the brunt of that, but relatively modest declines today,” said Fehr.The October natural gas contract was up 4.7 cents at US$2.814 per mmBTU.The December gold contract was up US$4.70 at US$1,205.80 an ounce and the December copper contract was up a half of a cent at US$2.651 a pound.last_img read more

Father whose daughters death prompted petition for more meningitis vaccines accuses Government

first_img“We have been through something so terrible and we thought if we could stop it happening to other families, that’s what we wanted to do,” Mr Burdett said. “But since going to Parliament, we’ve heard nothing. If nobody in Parliament is going to take any notice and do something, who else is there?”The Government is being complacent and we feel badly let down. There is just this massive hole that children are falling into. Asked how he and his wife were coping, Mr Burdett said: “I don’t think it ever gets any better”Credit:Gareth Fuller/PA Wire Faye before she contracted meningitisCredit: Family Handout/PA The family (pictured) claimed the Government has done "absolutely nothing" to raise awareness of the disease, despite promises to do so The father of a young girl whose death prompted a nationwide petition for more children to be vaccinated against meningitis has accused the Government of complacency.A year after two-year-old Faye Burdett died, her father Neil has claimed the Government has done “absolutely nothing” to raise awareness of the disease, despite promises to do so.Mr Burdett and his wife Jenny made the heartbreaking decision to turn off Faye’s life support last Valentine’s Day after her body was ravaged by sepsis caused by meningitis. Faye before she contracted meningitis There is concern that the current model does not adequately account for the lifetime costs of caring with somebody left disabled by meningitis.Bexsero is available on the NHS for babies aged two months, followed by a second dose at four months and a booster at 12 months. Parents who wish to have older children vaccinated must pay privately.A Department of Health spokesman said: “The UK is the first country in the world to have introduced a national Men B vaccination programme using Bexsero.”We have made important progress, vaccinating more than one million babies since September 2015, in which time the number of cases in infants aged one and under has dropped by 50 per cent.” Pictures released of their daughter covered in the rash prompted more than 820,000 people to sign a petition for the meningitis B jab Bexsero to be given to all children.Meanwhile, the charity Meningitis Research Foundation estimates that 400 cases of meningitis B among children up to the age of five could have been prevented if they had been given access to the vaccine.But the Government has since said the vaccine will not be made more widely available, saying it is not a good use of money. Asked how he and his wife were coping, Mr Burdett said: “I don’t think it ever gets any better. You learn to cope, you learn that you can do crazy things or push the self-destruct button, but none of that is going to bring Faye back. Show more The family (pictured) claimed the Government has done “absolutely nothing” to raise awareness of the disease, despite promises to do soCredit:Family Handout/PA Ministers are also yet to release calculations on how vaccines are deemed to be affordable and have not yet launched a meningitis awareness campaign, promised by a former public health minister.   Asked how he and his wife were coping, Mr Burdett said: "I don't think it ever gets any better" “Every day we miss her, we talk about her. There’s a huge hole in our lives that is never going to be filled.”But we’re also proud of her – because of the petition and because for 11 days she fought meningitis against the odds. That shows her strength and her fight.”Last April, former public health minister Jane Ellison pledged to launch an awareness campaign for parents on the signs of meningitis and the Government agreed to release its cost-modelling for vaccines.

It’s all been brushed under the carpet.”The MPs there said they would keep pushing for an awareness campaign but we’ve heard nothing, not even from our own MP. It’s not acceptable and it’s not fair because children are still dying.”He also revealed that Faye – who fought meningitis B for 11 days after her parents were initially mistakenly told she just had a virus – mouthed the word “mummy” just before she died.Mr Burdett, a lorry driver, said the decision not to extend the vaccine to more age groups was “insulting and devastating”.”Children under five are vulnerable to meningitis and they can’t tell you exactly what is happening,” he said. “They are solely reliant on their parents and carers to spot that something is wrong.” Public Health England has launched a separate campaign on sepsis.last_img read more

Bonnuci Italian football is still the same

first_imgItaly’s defender Leonardo Bonucci believes the Azzuri squad has not improved since they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.Roberto Mancini stepped in as the manager in place of Ventura, but the football federation is yet to name a permanent President since February.“I like winning, but losing gives me sour grapes. I’ve felt good since re-joining Juve, but more substance is needed here,” Bonucci said at a Press conference for Sunday’s Nations League clash with Poland.“I think it was important for Ventura to find a job where he could show his worth. He raised me and I can only thank him. There was a blame game after the Sweden tie, but both him and the players were at fault.“When he said that he wasn’t the CT after the Spain game, that’s what he thought but we were always at his disposal.“Knowing we need to win gives more value to the game on Sunday, one that is difficult but one we must win. Relegation would lead to many things being affected.“Federico [Bernardeschi] has grown impressively over the last year and continues to do so.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“He has plenty of room for improvement and has impressed me. I left him when he was still a boy and found him again as a man.“Zielinski? We have to improve technically compared to our first game against them. We gave the chance to break, so we must be wary of that.“Lewandowski, Piatek and Milik can also make the difference. Szczesny and I have laughed and joked together in recent days, but now we’ll be opponents and it’d be nice to make fun of him by scoring against him!“Italian football in crisis? I said it a few days ago, it was year zero 12 months ago and nothing has changed since then. In fact, maybe things have worsened.“Perhaps with a new President will we see an improvement.

Carragher predicts an open game between Liverpool Man United

first_imgLiverpool legend Jamie Carragher thinks that Manchester United’s new offensive tactics could open up more space for the Reds in Sunday’s showdown.Last time the two sides met came in December at Anfield, where Liverpool emerged with a comfortable 3-1 win over United.The match proved to be Jose Mourinho’s last one in charge of the Reds Devils with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since coming to turnaround their fortunes as caretaker manager.And the Old Trafford icon has delivered beyond expectations with United winning 11 of their 13 games under Solskjaer to help them reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and break into the top four of the Premier League.Now United will be looking to avenge their defeat to Liverpool in December in this Sunday’s league clash at Anfield.But Carragher believes Solskjaer’s attacking philosophy could actually turn things Liverpool’s way instead.“The way they are setting up now, they’re really attacking, on the front foot, exciting to watch,” Carragher told Viasport after watching Liverpool’s 0-0 Champions League draw with Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.“Maybe that will give Liverpool more chance in terms of space at Old Trafford.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Whenever Mourinho’s teams played against Liverpool at Old Trafford there was very little space for [Sadio] Mane and [Mohamed] Salah, they always found it really difficult in the last couple of years. So maybe that might change, maybe a more open game.”“Liverpool’s record is really poor at Old Trafford since Sir Alex Ferguson left so that is something that has to change. If Liverpool could get a result there they have a big week, Watford then Everton.“But Manchester United is the real big one, that’s the one where Man City expect Liverpool to drop points. If they get three points there it will be a little body blow to Manchester City.”The league match on Sunday between United and Liverpool will begin at 3:05 PM (CET)..@Carra23: – A goalless draw is the best draw you can get.#ViasportFotball pic.twitter.com/XgnEqxKZz2— Viasport Fotball (@ViasportFotball) February 19, 2019last_img read more

AL set to show strength in Suhrawardy Citizen Rally

first_imgAL set to show strength in Suhrawardy Citizen Rally. Prothom Alo File PhotoRuling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) has made all the preparations to organise a huge public gathering at Suhrawardy Udyan of the capital this afternoon.Although the gathering is being organised in the name of Citizen Rally to celebrate UNESCO’s recognition of Bangabandhu’s 7 March historic speech, the ruling AL wants to show its strength ostensibly to counter its arch enemy BNP’s 12 November rally at the same venue, said party insiders.Ruling AL president and prime minister Sheikh Hasina is scheduled to address the rally to be chaired by professor emeritus of Dhaka University Anisuzzaman.Party officials said the programme is being organised, for all practical purposes, by AL’s publicity committee and the party general secretary and road transport and bridges minister, Obaidul Quader, is coordinating the preparations.They said the party central leadership held several informal meetings with leaders of different party units of Dhaka and its surrounding districts.The party asked MPs and leaders of the districts around Dhaka to ensure maximum participation from their respective units.The Citizen Rally is scheduled to begin 2:30pm.The rally stage has been built in the shape of a boat, the election symbol of the AL. Some 25,000 chairs have been kept for the programme although the party is expecting to gather as much as 100,000 people in the rally.last_img read more

Houston Study Sheds Light On DrugResistant Bacteria Problem

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen 00:00 /01:09 X NIAIDA human neutrophil interacting with Klebsiella pneumoniae (pink), a multidrug–resistant bacterium that causes severe hospital infections.Houston researchers are working to learn more about drug-resistant bacteria. An investigation from PBS’s Frontline looked into a local discovery that sheds light on this ever-growing problem. Doctors have become increasingly concerned about strains of a bacteria called “Klebsiella.”Researchers at Houston Methodist Hospital were studying these so-called “superbugs” when they were surprised to find an unexpected and little-documented Klebsiella strain. “It showed that these bacteria are constantly evolving and changing, whether or not we’re keeping track of them,” says Emma Schwartz, a co-producer on the PBS story.The strain discovered in Houston does respond to some antibiotics, meaning it’s treatable. But as Dr. James Musser told PBS, there are unanswered questions about it.“We don’t know exactly where this bacteria came from,” he said, “but probably many patients brought it into the hospital, and we now know that this is a common organism in our community.”Houston’s a hugely-international place, so the bacteria could have come from anywhere. That means the city or its hospitals aren’t somehow more unsafe than any other place. But Schwartz says the Houston study represents the kind of close “surveillance” that’s needed on a broader level, if health care providers want to get better at fighting these evolving bacteria.
