Guyana Oil: ExxonMobil Liza Project in Guyana – video

Guyana project overview – This Update was filmed on April 4, 2019

ExxonMobil initiated oil and gas exploration activities in Guyana in 2008, collecting and evaluating substantial 3-D seismic data that led to the company safely drilling its first exploration well in 2015, Liza-1.

The Liza prospect is located approximately 120 miles (193km) offshore Guyana in the Stabroek block, which is operated by ExxonMobil affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana. Esso Exploration owns 45% interest in the block, while Hess Guyana Exploration owns 30% and CNOOC Nexen Petroleum Guyana owns the remaining 25%.      Continue reading

OIL: Tullow Stock Sinks on Finding High Sulfur Content in Guyana Crude

Tullow Stock Sinks on Finding High Sulfur Content in Guyana Crude

Paul Burkhardt | World Oil         

JOHANNESBURG (Bloomberg) – Tullow Oil stock fell the most in two decades in London trading after saying it’s reassessing the commercial viability of discoveries in Guyana.

The stock sank as much as 23% on the news that crude from two wells in the South American country was found to be heavy, with a high sulfur content. That’s disappointing to shareholders as the Guyanese discoveries earlier this year had countered concerns over troubled ventures elsewhere.    Continue reading

Is Urgency over the need to curb Global Warming finally taking hold? – By Mohamed Hamaludin

Urgency over the need to curb global warming seems to be finally taking hold

– By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

Republicans have unique perspectives on global warming, the accelerated overheating of the planet by carbon dioxide emissions which poses an existential threat to the human race.

Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe once held up a snowball in the Senate in 2015 as proof that the planet is not getting hotter. Illinois Congressman John Shimkus, an evangelical Christian, cited God’s promise to Noah in Genesis 8:21 never again to destroy the world by flooding. Utah Senator Mike Lee said the answer is to have more babies. Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson said “civilization thrives” in warmer climate. William Harper, senior National Security Council director, said, “The demonization of carbon dioxide is just like the demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler.” And Florida Senator Rick Scott, while governor, banned all state agencies from using the terms “climate change” and “global warming.”            Continue reading

The USA’s War on Chinese Advanced Technology – By Prof. Jeffrey D. Sachs

November 12, 2019- By – By Prof. Jeffrey D. Sachs

NEW YORK – The worst foreign-policy decision by the United States of the last generation – and perhaps longer – was the “war of choice” that it launched in Iraq in 2003 for the stated purpose of eliminating weapons of mass destruction that did not, in fact, exist. Understanding the illogic behind that disastrous decision has never been more relevant, because it is being used to justify a similarly misguided US policy today.

The decision to invade Iraq followed the illogic of then-US Vice President Richard Cheney, who declared that even if the risk of WMDs falling into terrorist hands was tiny – say, 1% – we should act as if that scenario would certainly occur.      Continue reading

God Save the Queen: The US Destruction of the British Empire – L arry Romanoff | Global Research

Larry Romanoff | Global Research

This is about a little-known and never-discussed part of US history, but yet one of the major factors that propelled the US to its overwhelming manufacturing and economic supremacy after the Second World War. It involves the final destruction of the British Empire, for which no thinking person would have regrets.

The First World War caused Britain to lose about 40% of its former Empire and wealth, and the Second World War completed this task, but not without the little-known predatory intercession of the United States of America.

During the Second War, Britain needed huge volumes of supplies of food, raw materials, manufactured goods, armaments and military hardware. But Britain’s factories were being destroyed by the war, and in any case lacked sufficient productive capacity. Britain also increasingly lacked money to pay for those goods, its solution being to purchase on credit from its colonies.        Continue reading

MEDICAL: Use of technology to improve mental health care – By Annan Boodram – The Caribbean Voice

By Annan Boodram – The Caribbean Voice

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) one in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. In fact it nearly two billion people suffer from mental illnesses every year. Furthermore, those who live with severe mental illness are more likely to face chronic medical conditions and die around 25 years earlier as well as routinely suffer gross human rights violations.

While nations struggle to diagnose and service their increasing mentally ill populations, technology is gradually moving front and center in that process. In fact, one way in which mental health care is more easily and extensively accessed is through apps.              Continue reading
