Libyan rebels stop oil production

first_img Show Comments ▼ Libyan rebels stop oil production Wednesday 6 April 2011 8:25 pm Brent crude oil futures hit a 2.5-year high of $123 per barrel yesterday as rebels said that they had been forced to suspend production in Libya’s eastern oil fields due to a sustained assault by Muammer Gaddafi’s forces. The hiatus means that rebel forces have only managed to oversee the extraction and export of one tanker’s worth of oil during their time in charge of the country’s rich eastern oil reserves, although they have seen off two tankers that were filling previous orders. Rebels are hoping to use oil exports to fund the ongoing war against Gaddafi. whatsapp whatsapp Share KCS-content Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Don’t qualify for the full State Pension? This is what I’d do Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. According to official figures released by the Department for Work and Pensions back in November, of the 1.1m people who receive the New State Pension, only 44% (or just under 500,000 pensioners) receive the full amount of £168.60 a week, or £8767.20 a year.Under the old system, around two-thirds of retirees received the full entitlement. This could mean that many retirees are set for a shock when they eventually leave the workforce.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Saving for the future Rather than relying on the government to fund my retirement income, I’m building my own private savings pot.Over the past few decades, the government has introduced a range of tools to help people save for retirement. These tools include tax-free savings wrappers and regulations to help private providers manage private pensions. These regulations have set off a price war with private pension providers, which has been a boon for savers. The cost of managing a private pension has now dropped dramatically, and it does not look as if this trend is going to come to an end any time soon. The best way to grow your money over the long term is to invest. SIPPs allow you to do that without racking up any additional tax obligations as any income or capital gains earned within a SIPP is tax-free, although you will have to pay tax on any money withdrawn. Investing for growthThe investing strategy that I’m using to save for the future is relatively straightforward. Rather than trying to pick single stocks, I’m relying on a combination of tracker funds. A portfolio split 50/50 between FTSE 100, and FTSE 250 trackers gives me exposure to the UK’s fastest-growing companies and a collection of global blue-chips. Over the past few decades, I calculate that this simple portfolio has produced a return for investors in the region of 9%, which is enough to turn a simple investment of £200 a month into a pension pot worth £370k over three decades. A pot of £370k might not seem like a tremendous amount of money, but this would be enough to produce an annual income of £14,800, that’s nearly double the current rate of State Pension. The bottom line So that’s how I’m planning to avoid problems with the State Pension in later life. Rather than waiting to see if I qualify for the full State Pension amount, I’ve started saving today to prepare for the future.If my calculations are correct, I should be able to retire on a basic income of £14,800 and any additional income I receive on top of that will be a bonus. The best thing about this saving and investing strategy is that it does not take a massive amount of time, effort or money to set up. All you need to do is set up a regular investing plan, sit back and let the market do the hard work for the next 30 years.  Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 5th January, 2020 Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

30 minutes with… James O’Connor

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Wallaby star talks fears, flying and France with Sarah MockfordRUGBY WORLD: Who are the jokers in the Wallaby squad?JAMES O’CONNOR: Kurtley Beale is one of the characters, he’s quite an extrovert and gets all the boys up. He can take a joke too and takes the mickey out of himself. Adam Ashley-Cooper also has a good sense of humour and so does Benn Robinson.RW: What’s your guilty pleasure?JOC: I love fried food. I shouldn’t love it but I do and if I’m having a cheat day I’ll have fried chicken.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve heard on the pitch?Getting his kicks: MitchellJOC: In my first season at Western Force, Drew Mitchell really got under the skin of James Horwill in a game against the Reds. Drew called him ‘Apple Turnover’ – he was conceding a lot of turnovers. You could see from his body language that he was affected. Drew’s got a lot of banter!RW: What are your nicknames?JOC: Rabbit or Rabs is the most common one. I’ve had that since school because of the way I’d sidestep. I’ve also been called Clouds because whenever we have a meeting about a game I can zone out. It’s because I learn visually and try to visualise the situations.RW: Any phobias?JOC: It used to be heights but I’ve been bungee-jumping and sky-diving, so that one’s gone now. I try to face fears, to break them.RW: What are your bugbears?JOC: Auto-correct on text messages. That really gets to me. I use slang and it changes the words to things that mean something totally different. I also don’t like people biting their nails.RW: Superstitions? US film star Angelina Jolie makes a speech before a screening of the movie ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ which she directed, at United Nations University in Tokyo on July 29, 2013. Jolie’s partner Brad Pitt is also in Tokyo to promote his latest movie ‘World War Z’. AFP PHOTO/Toru YAMANAKA (Photo credit should read TORU YAMANAKA/AFP/Getty Images) JOC: I like to have a nap on game day. I also put my right boot on after my left and then tie them up. As a goalkicker you want your boots to feel exactly right and to be aesthetically pleasing. I’ll retie them before I go out for the game.RW: Do you have any hidden talents?JOC: I’m learning to play the guitar and to speak a bit of French.RW: Is that ahead of a move to the Top 14?JOC: A lot of rugby players have taken that path and it could happen for me down the track. I just really like the lifestyle in the South of France – good culture, good people, good food. They enjoy themselves, too. They work to live rather than live to work.Dinner anyone? JolieRW: Who would be your dream guests for a dinner party?JOC: Viktor Frankl (author and neurologist). I read his book in the last year of school and have tried to bring some of his ideas into my life. I’d spice it up a bit and throw in a movie star, someone who’s a lot of fun. Maybe Angelina Jolie and Marilyn Monroe. That would be a great dinner party with a lot of interesting stories and conversations.RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?JOC: Definitely to fly. Or be invisible. Or mind-reading. Maybe chuck in a flash of speed! Number one would be flying, though, just the thrill of soaring through the air. I’ve dreamt about that; it would be amazing.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?JOC: A fair few things. I’d like to finish my law degree – I’m picking at it slowly. I don’t necessarily want to become a lawyer, but doing what I do at the moment there are a lot of contracts and I’d like to have a control over and understanding of them. It would also be very useful in business environments after I finish playing. I also want to learn a language and be able to play an instrument – I might switch from the guitar to the piano.RW: How’d you like to be remembered? JOC: I’d like people to see me as outgoing and bubbly, but also compassionate, fair and determined.This was published in the August 2013 edition of Rugby World.

Barron Trump to attend Maryland’s St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in…

first_img Josh Thomas says: By ENS staffPosted May 15, 2017 May 15, 2017 at 2:48 pm I hope the boy is allowed to attend school without protesters or tabloid photographers hounding him. Rector Smithfield, NC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Comments (23) May 16, 2017 at 10:48 am When I thought more last night about why I couldn’t really understand the newsworthiness of this notice, I had a clarifying thought and so I am posting it here for what it is worth. It feels to me as though a denomination that is doing a lot to distance itself from its identity as an enclave for privileged persons historically, should be aware that this feeds into a nostalgia for the privileged past by being able to say that the President was married in an Episcopal parish and now his son is attending an Episcopal parochial school. I have this thought at the exact same time as I agree very much with the thoughtful and gracious comment of persons such as Joanne Sanders. In my case, I think both things simultaneously. . . . . . May 15, 2017 at 7:25 pm Bob, it’s not about Trump. It’s about the boy. Why is your dislike for the parents/ family transferred to Barron. President Donald Trump points to his son Barron while watching the inaugural parade Jan. 20, 2017, with first lady Melania Trump in Washington, D.C. Photo: REUTERS/Carlos Barria[Episcopal News Service] Barron Trump, President Donald Trump’s youngest child, will attend St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, this fall.Barron Trump, 11, will move to Washington, D.C., from New York with his mother, first lady Melania Trump, at some point after he finishes the current school year at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. He is believed to be in fifth grade.St. Andrew’s Head of School Robert Kosasky and Rodney Glasgow, head of the middle school and chief diversity officer, wrote a letter to St. Andrew’s families confirming that the young Trump will become a member of the Class of 2024, CNN reported.The Washington Post reported that the White House wanted to announce the news in the summer after St. Andrew’s ended the academic year, in part out of concern that the school might become that site of protest. However, parents started to ask questions when rumors began to circulate and the school decided to confirm Barron Trump’s enrollment. CNN reported that the school had the Trump family’s permission to do so.Melania Trump said in a statement after the announcement that the family is “very excited” to have Barron Trump attend a school that she said is “known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.” She said the school’s mission “to know and inspire each child in an inclusive community dedicated to exceptional teaching, learning and service” appealed to the family.Donald Trump was raised Presbyterian. Barron Trump was baptized in December 2006 at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida, the same church where his parents married on Jan. 22, 2005.St. Andrew’s, about 20 miles north of the White House, was founded in 1978 and has 580 students in grades six through 12. It has a median class size of 15 and a 7:1 student to teacher ratio, according to information on the school’s website. Tuition is just less than $40,000 for students in grades six through eight.The school has the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, which says its priority is to “ensure that 100 percent of St. Andrew’s pre-school through 12th grade teachers receive training and ongoing professional development (every school year) in mind, brain, and education science, the most innovative thinking being applied to enhancing teacher quality and student achievement today.” Tags May 17, 2017 at 6:02 pm Caveat to the above(my initial response) thusly and firstly: what a welcome exchange/dialogue on this notice. And secondly but importantly the choices were out there prominently: 1) Charter Schools promoted by Betsy Devos,U.S.Secretary of Education; 2)Evangelical fundamental Christian school in the VP Mike Pence and Rev.Franklin/late Billy Graham tradition; and/or 3) Father’s military academy training/education in his youth…Upon this reflection where such a “presidential” family is so blessed with so many exceptional opportunities for their precious young son, let us all be Thankful for this choice… and with the hope that he/they may continue with his education/stability through the years to graduation!Again Mary, please keep us informed as to progress on this important issue.It is gratifying that we are all able to come together sharing our concerns and perspectives.Blessings and Peace be with us All. Joanne Sanders says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Pjcabbiness says: Rector Knoxville, TN May 15, 2017 at 6:04 pm I agree with you completely. I dislike the president intensely, but minor children are off limits, and the other children and parents of the school should be as well. I wish the boy much success in school. Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK May 15, 2017 at 9:01 pm I always appreciate the generosity by which many of my fellow Episcopalians respond to such news. I do agree that Barron Trump should be treated with dignity, respect and kindness like any student would deserve, And perhaps most importantly that St Andrews will provide persons with characteristics of integrity, fairness, decency, respect, generosity, intellect, grace, honesty – there are countless more any of us could list – as essential role models in his life. I will leave it at that. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY May 15, 2017 at 4:07 pm Just what I needed in my inbox, “Trump & Episcopal” together in ENS’ lead headline. Is this something we’re supposed to be proud of?The kid’s father staged his 3rd wedding at an Episcopal church in Florida; it doesn’t seem to have done him much good. Barron Trump to attend Maryland’s St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in the fall May 15, 2017 at 4:08 pm Glory Be and Hallelujah! Yes Melania exercised her Mother’s voice for the Best for her son Barron! She has more maturity/wisdom than many may imagine… and yes it is reassuring and interesting history re the early Episcopal connection… And of course as an almost “cradle to grave” Episcopalian I must reflect this bias although I am historically the First Daughter of Norwegian Immigrant(Lutheran initially) then my Viking Father’s leadership in Wisconsin(Grace Cathedral,then Dean John Patterson)… this may progress to a more humane, spiritual path for all of us — and of course again I am reflecting my optimistic spirit…And my favorite scriptural passage thusly, “God works in mysterious ways” and every day we are so blessed with these unexpected developments and signs …Mary, with appreciation, we are all looking forward to more notices of progress… Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Submit an Event Listing Rector Belleville, IL May 19, 2017 at 12:01 am So happy for the whole Trump family, especially Barron. St. Andrew’s was a good choice and hopefully the parents/children will be “tolerant” to such a sweet boy. I voted Trump/Pence and am an Episcopalian. I know there are many of us out there! It’s just “funny” that the new Episcopalians want everyone to be tolerant unless we don’t agree with their issues. Very disappointing. I go to my local Church, but do not listen to anything coming from the Bishops, etc. They have gone astray sadly. God bless the Trumps and Barron.

Admitted adultery, multiple marriages, cheating people in unscrupulous business dealings, insults to war heroes, women and the handicapped, calling large groups of one race criminals, inciting hatred.

However, I am not quite sure why this should be considered a news item for the Episcopal News Service. It shouldn’t be for any other journalistic news source/outlet, either, for that matter (in my opinion). I did notice the article says: “St. Andrew’s, about 20 miles north of the White House, was founded in 1978 and has 580 students in grades six through 12.” However, it also states its Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning priority is to “ensure (that) 100 percent of St. Andrew’s pre-school through 12th grade teachers receive training and ongoing professional development…” So, I’m wondering how many teachers and students in pre-school through fifth grade the school has and just what they do.

Trump is very happy with his conduct, which gets noticed, so your defense, while meritorious, is probably a moot issue to Trump/ Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Tampa, FL Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem May 15, 2017 at 2:45 pm Outstanding! We wish him well at this terrific school. May 15, 2017 at 3:34 pm Is this even news? Dr. Erna Lund says: May 16, 2017 at 12:44 pm Noreen: I wonder if sadness was aroused when Mr. & Mrs. Obama sent their children to the highly selective Sidwell Friends School at a cost of $34,000 each per year? The Bidens ensured that their grandchildren attended there as well. You can decide who gets the “breaks” also considering that Mr. Obama just made $400,000 for giving a speech in the financial world. It seems that Sasha and Malia are none the worse for living around these adults who had very complicated if not clouded lives. Barron’s tuition will be about $38,000 a year. What parent doesn’t want their child to be better than they are? Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Dan C Hoffman says: Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA May 16, 2017 at 2:31 pm This is great news. Barron deserves a loving school community to find refuge from the media bullies trying to bring down his father and family. The Episcopal school will give him a foundation to build his life on and that is not a bad thing. I support the President and First Lady in this decision. Barron will make many new friends. To remind those who find fault in President Trump:“God is watching usGod is watching usGod is watching us from a distanceFrom a distance you look like my friendEven though we are at warFrom a distance I just cannot comprehendWhat all this fightings for” Dr. William A. Flint, MDiv, PhD says: Rector Shreveport, LA May 15, 2017 at 8:55 pm Josh: Just out of respecting the dignity of all people, please note that “the kid” (as you refer to him) is an 11 year old child who was baptized in 2006 in the Episcopal Church and his name is Barron. That his parents are hated widely by liberal-minded Christians who flatter themselves about their walk with God is a rich topic for another place. It appears that these “horrible people” made a wise choice to have Barron educated in what we can hope to be a Christian setting. Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Steve Catanich says: Rick Spring says: Bob Scruggs says: Michele Smith says: Featured Events An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Pittsburgh, PA May 20, 2017 at 4:07 pm How did you come to feel: “It’s just “funny” that the new Episcopalians want everyone to be tolerant unless we don’t agree with their issues.” yet were still able to cast a vote for President Trump and Vice President Pence who appear to be very intolerant of anyone who does not agree with them or does not believe as they believe? They both, but most especially Vice President Pence, have made statements indicating they probably do not understand (or do not care about) the non-establishment of religion clause in the First Amendment to the Constitution to the United States of America. I believe they, again, primarily Vice President Pence, appear to support, have proposed, enacted (or tried to enact/sign) laws most likely unconstitutional under the non-establishment of religion clause of that First Amendment. You seem to be saying everyone (including Episcopalians and most especially “new” Episcopalians) must be tolerant but the President and Vice President of the United States of America don’t have to be tolerant of all country’s citizens. I believe tolerance is not the minimum standard, acceptance is the minimum standard. This means, to me, I must accept your choice (not just your legal right) to show your support for national leaders who are unable to reciprocate by showing acceptance of others or our rule of law. I also must accept your choice (not just your right) to ignore “anything coming from the Bishops, etc. They have gone astray sadly.” I am trying to make more and more steps toward being more Christ like.

I am in *no way* a supporter of Pres. Trump, but the minor children of politicians should be off limits for such things… Bill Louis says: Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Washington, DC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Doug Desper says: Rick Spring says: Submit a Press Release The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group May 15, 2017 at 3:51 pm Absolutely. He should be allowed the privacy to grow up as normally as possible. The press has mostly done this for the Obama Daughters, Chelsea Clinton, and Amy Carter and I hope that the same courtesy will be extended to Barron Trump. May 20, 2017 at 4:56 pm Rick Spring – we are a gay family and we also believe in separation of Church and State. The media has been against our new POTUS and still is. Obama and Hillary have done far worse things than DJT have done, but the media looked the other way. I’m concerned if the country does not let our POTUS govern, we will become a Socialist State . Obama is pulling the strings to create anarchy which is in the Communist playbook of “step one”. I also feel the VP is a strong leader and seasoned politician, so he is a great asset.

True to the Okanagan landscape, the surrounding land is arid and filled with earthy undertones and worn rolling rockscapes. The Lake is almost like a vision of paradise amid this desert-like surroundings. Brilliant greens line the shore of the lake in direct contrast to the arid mountains beyond.

The large covered decks, extensive sliding windows, open flexible plan and wood sliders (both interior and exterior), allows the owner to frame, touch and breathe in the natural surroundings. The color scheme of the exterior is inspired from the surrounding landscape, and the stonework is local from Kelly Valley Quarry. The large open plan on the main floor allows for generous entertaining and family play areas. Quieter and more intimate areas face the mountainside where a small grassy enclosed garden stills the breeze and view. Essentially, the house is the place for the inhabitants to bring the natural elements into a more human scale. Save this picture!© Frits de VriesEconomically, the simplicity of the house’s design helps maintain a low overall construction cost. This has allowed the owner to allocate more money on quality detailing and finishing materials such the large expansive windows, extensive use of rich natural woods, natural stone and custom millwork. In addition, the owner manufactured all the steel components of house himself to help save on costs i.e. steel stairs and louver systems. Solarban 60 windows and a louver system for all windows reduces energy use. Generous overhangs, especially along the western exposure reduces rain exposure, controls solar gain, minimizes potential leakage and reduces maintenance. The open plan allows for extensive natural cross ventilation throughout the house and requires very little cooling in the summer. An in-floor heating system has been set-up in the house for future use of the Lake.Save this picture!© Frits de VriesProject gallerySee allShow lessSanta Rita Restaurant / Pedro PachecoArticlesAD Round Up: Best from Flickr Part XLVIArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Frits de Vries Architect Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

The boundary situation created by the project plot in a corner position, together with the plot orientation, makes the house to be located in its northern área, on the back of its two access streets adopting a kind of fortress structure shaped like ‘L’ pointing to that public space, but totally opened to its private garden, delimited by two glazed and really opened façades but protected with a porch and pergola from the direct solar gain where a climbing plant and deciduous tree grow.Save this picture!General PlanThe entire housing spaces are oriented to this sunny garden where domestic life takes place. The house has a greater height in the northwest volume, to be accommodated in this area the living room, dining room and kitchen, spaces that need a greater ceiling height and causes that first floor where bedrooms for children are located, is elevated respect the northeast wing.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánIn this northwest area with smaller corridor main bedroom is located on the first floor, with evidence inside of the variable height of the roof that becomes the lowest area on a terrace with fantastic views over Madrid. The designed architecture tries to integrate itself with the environment and highlight the closed fortress to the exterior and opened to the garden. Exterior facades are designed in white concrete with clapboard and exterior wood carpentry. The relation between the interior spaces and the garden is defined by large panes of glass, fitted with solar control devices, while blind panes are constructed with perfect smooth white concrete almost like a stucco.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánSave this picture!Elevation and SectionSave this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánPulling apart the house in the contiguous plot, which is currently from the same owner, but parcelled for being sold in the future, a shallow pool and a sheet of water are located and can be noticed from inside through a window, which also provides a lateral shot of light in the side of the living room where the pergola becomes porch- concrete slab completely covered. The project bet decidedly for energy saving (glazed surfaces with latest technology orientated south and protected with fallen leaf, light colors, máximum isolations and few holes to north and noise).Project gallerySee allShow lessJuhani Pallasmaa: “Architecture Is a Mediation Between the World and Our Minds”Architecture NewsHorizontal Vertigo: Argentinian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2018Articles Share Photographs:  Miguel de Guzmán Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Spainlast_img read more
