At last, Saudi Arabia seems to be doing what it takes to reduce the world's most visible oil glut: the one in the U.S. Unfortunately, its renewed vigor comes as OPEC's deal to reduce excess crude stockpiles starts to show signs of unraveling elsewhere, a subject that will be wrestled with by the group's oil ministers as they and other producer nations meet in St Petersburg on Monday. Weekly U.S. crude oil imports from Saudi Arabia have fallen sharply since early June Data published last week by the U.S. Energy Information Administration show that imports from Saudi Arabia in the week to July 14 fell to their lowest for seven years: just 524,000 barrels a day. For sure, one week's number doesn't
DEAR MISS MANNERS: I am an American married to an Englishman who is a college professor, and who has lived in this country for about 35 years. I will be moving with him to England when we retire. My husband, who is from a lower middle-class background like myself, has been knighted! He still answers his office phone as “Pete Smith.” He never corrects people in the way they address him. The name on his business cards is “Peter Smith, Ph.D.,” plus a string of other letters including his knighthood, but of course most Americans can’t make heads or tails of that. I admire his modesty, yet, perversely, I want to be “Lady Smith.” Will Miss Manners allow me to get away with this? If so, how? GENTLE
Atlantic City was once New Jersey's largest tourist attraction. As the first city to provide gambling outside of Nevada, it provided those on the East Coast a place to vacation on the beach and gamble. But the city has seen hard times these past few years; five of the city's 12 casinos closed between 2013 and 2016, and Atlantic City's unemployment rate is 6.3% (well above the national rate of 4%). Just this May, the Trump Taj Mahal - which originally opened in 1990 - sold for four cents on the dollar. While its buyer, Hard Rock International, has plans to renovate the casino and hotel, it might not be worth the $375 million investment given a report that was recently released by the National
On Mon., Aug. 21, at precisely 9:04 a.m. PST, the shadow of the moon will touch down in Lincoln City, Ore., beginning a total solar eclipse that will cross 14 states, all the way to the South Carolina shoreline. Some 12.2 million people live within the 70-mile-wide band where the eclipse will be total - and millions more are expected to travel to witness it firsthand. “If we have some good weather, it will absolutely be the most viewed total eclipse in human history,” said Fred Espenak, a retired NASA astrophysicist who has witnessed 20 total solar eclipses. From the ancients who feared eclipses as a sign of heavenly portent to the scientists who revel in the moon’s shadow, the celestial spectacle has always been universally astonishing and magnificent.
“I think that there were parts of it that were funny, but there’s a lot of it that was over the line,” Spicer told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Friday. Hours earlier Spicer submitted his resignation, as Trump named Anthony Scaramucci his new communications director.
Draymond Green took to Instagram to complain about Conor McGregor wearing a No. 23 Golden State Warriors jersey. That’s the number he wears, of course, for the championship-winning team. Green said “We rockin with Floyd bro not you... take that off bruh.” But McGregor wasn’t wearing a Green jersey, it was an old C.J. Watson one. That led to McGregor telling Green he didn’t know who he was. Then he told him to to stay in school. Oh my! Green is a two-time NBA champion! But that wasn’t it, because McGregor is extra as hell. So he told Green that he “Dribbles heads off the floor. Not a ball. This is no game here kid.” There’s a lot happening here, and of course Floyd Mayweather jumped right in with
