Royal Dutch Shell shares: what the Christmas lockdown means for the stock The oil industry has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic, and Royal Dutch Shell (LSE:RDSB) shares are no exception. Global lockdowns have meant cars, aircraft, and cruise ships remained parked and unused. This lack of activity resulted in an immediate decline in the demand for oil-based fuels, and thus oil prices have plummeted.Due to a new strain of Covid-19, a Tier 4 Christmas lockdown has gone into effect across parts of the UK, with tighter restrictions (if not lockdowns) in others. But what does this mean for the shares of Shell and the oil industry in general?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…The Christmas lockdown and oil pricesOver the past 20 years, the price per barrel of oil has been steadily declining. Innovations in green energy have made technologies such as wind and solar farms far cheaper, and therefore more viable as an alternative. In my opinion, this has been the primary driver for the historical decline in oil value.But this year has meant extra pressures. In March, much of the world came to a standstill. Global lockdowns resulted in fuel consumption plummeting almost overnight. As such oil, prices dropped to average lows of $11.26 per barrel – an 82% decline compared to the previous year.As lockdowns were lifted, the demand for fuel returned, and the oil price began to recover. This recovery accelerated on the announcement of several Covid-19 vaccines. But will a Christmas lockdown change all that?Probably not. While it has caused an adverse effect, with oil prices dropping by $2 a barrel, the lockdown is restricted to parts of the UK, with most of the world remaining open. But it certainly adds more volatility to the path of recovery.Implications for Royal Dutch Shell sharesRoyal Dutch Shell is an oil & natural gas explorer, producer, and refiner. Therefore the price of crude oil is the primary driving force behind the profits of the business. Needless to say, 2020 has been a tough year.Even before the Christmas lockdown was announced, its oil refineries were still not up to maximum capacity, operating at around 72%-76% of that level. Based on its most recent quarterly results, revenue has dropped by nearly 50% compared to a year ago, and profits by 89% thanks to a weakened oil price.What’s more, the firm announced its intention to write down the value of its oil & gas assets by $3.5bn to $4.5bn. This can be interpreted as management no longer believing oil prices will return to its historical highs.Can Shell shares recover?I think the likelihood of Shell shares returning to £27 is low. Over the short term, oil prices may return to pre-Covid levels. However, with a continual shift towards green energy supported by most western governments, the glory days of the oil industry may be over.The UK, along with the rest of Europe, is aiming to be carbon-neutral by 2050. Furthermore, based on Boris Johnson’s ‘Green Industrial Revolution’, petrol and diesel cars are being phased out by 2030. Combined, these two factors likely mean the complete removal of oil-based fuels for both the energy and automotive sectors. Both of which are the primary drivers behind oil prices today.Personally, I’d much rather invest in renewable energy stocks, such as Greencoat UK Wind.

A football game in Vietnam the day after Christmas 1969

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here Christmas 2020InspirationBy Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of The Apopka VoiceEditor’s Note: This article was republished, and is a Christmas fixture on The Apopka Voice.It was Christmas night in 1982, and I was at Mastry’s Bar and Grill in St. Petersburg with several writers and editors closing in on last call. We had just finished publishing the December 26th edition of The St. Petersburg Times. I was by far the youngest person in the group and had the least amount of work experience, but for some reason, I uttered this remark to a group of journalists that had been away from their homes on many Christmas evenings.“This is the first Christmas I have spent away from home.”This comment, coming from a 19-year old stringer who had worked on the news desk less than one year, was like kindling in a smoldering fireplace to the seasoned veterans present. What could be better than a teenager complaining about working on Christmas?When the laughter died down, their recollections began…“Are you serious kid?” said a 50-something reporter who was chain-smoking and drinking gin and tonics like he was going to the electric chair the next morning. “This is probably the 20th Christmas I’ve worked.”I tried to qualify my statement… ‘it was matter-of-factly, not a complaint’, I would say… but was interrupted by another ghost of Christmas past.“My God I covered war zones on Christmas,” said the next grizzled-editor to take a shot at me. “If you can’t handle working holidays son, you may as well quit now.”The next guy up I think claimed he covered the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. “You should’ve seen those Roman Centurions push us around… you wouldn’t have lasted five minutes kid.”Finally, the attacks ended when another group of Times staffers showed up, and the conversation shifted mercifully away from me. That was also when Shelby Strother sat down beside me to check on my well-being.“Don’t let the bastards get you down,” he said, knowing the cliche’ would make me laugh.Shelby was a staff writer and columnist for the sports department, and the greatest writer I have ever known. I worked with him for a couple of years at The Times before I went off to college, and he went on to be one of the best sportswriters of the ’80s and ’90s.Shelby died after a brief bout with cancer in 1991. If he were alive today, I believe he would have been one of the great novelists in American history.He had a rare collection of personality traits. He was shy and kept to himself, seeking out remote areas of the news floor to write his articles. Despite his desire for solitude, his attire was that of an extrovert – Hawaiian shirts, leather jackets, and dark sunglasses being his staples. He didn’t share a lot of himself with people, or a lot of his experiences, but when he did it was substantive, and would always draw a crowd of interested listeners.But when it came to writing, no one was more passionate.Shelby would fight with editors about every single comma, period, word, sentence, and paragraph of his articles.He talked a lot about sentence rhythm.Words were like lyrics to him. Columns were like songs. And if an editor didn’t understand that, he went from shy to full-throated debater in the blink of an eye.Shelby was on a constant search for great stories, and the perfect words to tell those stories. He was a sort of mentor to me. Perhaps the only person I have ever described that way. I hung on his every word as it related to sports, journalism, reporting, and writing.But there was a side of him I never knew.I asked him when his first Christmas was away from his family, and he told me it was 1969. I thought about that for a moment, and then asked him where he was in 1969.“Vietnam,” he said.It wasn’t something he talked a lot about. At least not to me. But on that Christmas night in 1982, he shared a story about that historic event that I will always remember.* * * * *“On the day after Christmas, in 1969, I had powdered eggs and Jello for breakfast,” he said. “I drank the Jello. They mixed it up and served it before it began to set and it almost tasted like Kool-Aid depending on how thirsty you were. It was bad, but the eggs were worse. Powdered eggs were one of those things that never got mentioned when someone would ask what it was like in Vietnam.”On this particular day, Shelby had a bad case of the Christmas blues.“It was my first Christmas away from home,” he said. “And the Southeast Asian winter wonderland with the acne of bomb craters and questionable morals could not be any further from home.”He knew when Christmas came because the bulletin board told him. A typed message declared:Christmas will be celebrated on 25 December by order of…“Oh, there were efforts and allusions,” he said. “Like Christmas Eve, when the uneasy truce made things seem almost like a Silent Night. If I tried hard enough, I could hear the unlucky guy who drew guard duty whispering Christmas carols to himself while smoking a joint. And Christmas morning the cooks wore chef hats, instead of fatigue caps. And the line for confession was conspicuously long. And the Armed Forces Radio Network played Handel’s Messiah instead of the usual fare of feel-good rock n’ roll. And maybe for a few minutes, I got that toasty warm feeling Christmas Day always provided.”Then he saw a pal, a Marine whose nerves had gotten so bad that lately, he had taken to drinking himself to sleep. The Marine was feeling sorry for himself and tears tracked down his hard face. Beside him was a tape recorder, playing his children’s wonderfully butchered version of Santa Claus is Coming to Town. He hadn’t written home in months.“I  thought about saying something,” Shelby said. “Then I changed my mind.”The Marine rewound the tape and started it again and his sobbing grew louder.“The ornaments and decorations that had been hung in the bunkers had been gnawed and chewed up by rats during the night. There was a small Christmas tree, but it was an aluminum one and someone had thrown up underneath it.”He said that the mail had not come for a week and that even the guys who didn’t have hangovers felt lousy. The depression mounted for him, but then the word spread that mail arrived, and there was a package for him. Maybe he would get some cookies. For sure, a letter, something from his kid sister or folks or girlfriend, any words of support he could use to keep his contemporary world at arm’s length.It turned out to be a football.“Not just any football,” he said “But one caught in the stands by his father back in the days before the nets were hoisted in the end zone at college games. A genuine game ball from the University of Miami. It was my father’s prized possession.”There was also a note from his father. His mother usually wrote. This time his father did. There was the usual small talk, but at the end of the letter, there was something about thanks for making the sacrifice.“My father was a career military man, a retired officer, a patriot, the hawk who prayed nightly for the dove. Now, his country’s sentiments were divided. There were people sticking flowers into gun barrels. Conscientious objectors and people who were afraid of dying and people who simply did not support what was going on. Some chose to live in Canada. My father did not understand.”His father thanked him for spending this Christmas away from home. ‘It means a lot’, he wrote.“A football,” Shelby explained. “A sacrifice for a sacrifice.”“I began realizing some things that day after Christmas and years later, I still remember a lot of them. It was a bad war and our general fears and narrow ambitions were raised to high principle. Maybe we’d get to the light at the end of the tunnel before some incoming horror lit us all up and turned us into jellyfish. I thought a lot about whether the war was right or wrong. But suddenly I realized I was there in it regardless. And that counted for something.”Now he had a football.“I decided the thing to do with this football, this treasure of a grown man’s life, was to have a game with it. Kick it and throw it and fumble it and – what the hell – just let it get all scruffy and embedded with the funk that got under your skin and didn’t go away for six months until after you left the country.”The call went out.Anyone wanting to play a pickup game would meet beside the tin Quonset hut that always smelled because that was where body bags were filled. A nearby field was mowed. A bag of flour was used to line it. Sides were picked. Of course, there was an uneven number. Nothing ever goes completely by design in a police-action like Vietnam.“The game started anyway and within minutes, everyone was back in his own backyard,” Shelby said. “There was no war going on. Just a bunch of kids playing football. To the best of everyone’s knowledge, the score was tied an hour later. Not that anyone really cared.”Then Shelby described what would be the last play of this game.“In the huddle, the old pump-fake play was called. Parker, a Marine who could run faster than anyone else despite the several pounds of love beads and necklaces he always wore, would take three steps, pivot, then take off. Brito, the quarterback who always bragged of the days he led his high school team to the state finals two years in a row, promised he could fake the short pass and hit Parker as he streaked down the flour line.”Shelby said he was a blocking back on the play, and remembered it vividly.“The defender bit on the fake and was a beaten man. Brito wound up with all his might and let loose with a mighty grunt. The ball fluttered off to the right, bounced off a cooler and rolled down a gully into some thick undergrowth.”And because of the dangers of Vietnam, they did not attempt to retrieve the ball.“No search party was formed. Nobody wanted to go stomping through some area where there may or may not be some forgotten land mine. Or maybe a viper, a 30-pacer, the deadliest of snakes not walking around on two feet.”Game called on account of reality.* * * * * In later years, Shelby wrote about this football game and his recollections of his time in Vietnam. In the article, he called himself “the airman” and concluded the story with this account:“The football stayed there at least for the next 218 days when the airman transferred out. For all he knows, it’s still there.Some people later criticized him for not treating the football with the same reverence his father had. He didn’t care to listen. If anybody really wanted to know what he thought, he would have told them that the football and that football game on the day after Christmas were the best presents he ever received.The present was himself. Faith and hope and self-dignity and perspective and yeah, feeling. All were restored as he remembered once more what the world celebrates each December 25th.He might have been only a few clicks away from being the burn-out loser so many people became in that misbegotten country. But he found himself when he lost that football. For a day, he got to be a child again. He regressed and meandered through safer circumstances with less significant circumstances. The hope and fears of all the year were set aside.It was glorious.So many of his memories of that country are horrible ones. So many memories still strafe an overworked conscience. So many are contained in Washington, D.C., where the chiseled names on a stark granite wall include a free spirit named Parker. But the one memory that overrules all the others has to do with a football.There always will be a danger of confusing Christmas with that day when everyone gets a bunch of nice presents. Just as people often will mistake the gift with the package it came in.But the meaning of giving and sacrifice and Christmas, not to mention the taste of powdered eggs, will never go away for the airman who became a little more of a man by becoming a little boy again.”* * * * * Editor’s Note: Not a Christmas has passed that I don’t think of Shelby, his experiences in Vietnam, and the influence and inspiration he had in my life and my writing. This article is in memory and honor of him. Much of his prose was woven into my recollection of the conversation I had with him that evening.  Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate last_img read more

Harrods & NSPCC designer charity pop up opens for second year

The “startling” case was brought to the notice of the High Court in a writ petition, seeking quashing of the criminal case, for the accused children belonging to the category ‘doli incapax’, under Section 82 of IPC. In the backdrop, three young children, all below 7 years of age, have been alleged to have committed gang rape on a child, who is also of the same age and studying along with them. During the course of hearing via video conferencing, the bench of Justice Bechu Kurian Thomas was “shocked” that not only were the children not produced before the JJB as per the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015, but the SHO concerned had instead summoned the children for test identification parade. “Even though the plight of the victim stares at this Court, still a child in conflict with law has to be treated in a manner contemplated under the JJ Act and not like any other hardened criminal,” the court observed. Expressing displeasure at the “unpardonable” conduct of the authorities, Justice Thomas remarked that children in conflict with law have to necessarily be dealt with under the JJ Act. “Under the JJ Act, a child when apprehended as being in conflict with law, is to be dealt with, exclusively by the Board constituted under Section 8, that too in a manner provided under Section 3 through the procedure contemplated under Section 10 of the JJ Act. As a Special Act, when a child in conflict with law is apprehended, for an offence either under the Indian Penal Code or under any other Penal Statute, the officer apprehending the child has to resort to the procedure under Section 10 of the JJ Act,” he illustrated. However, in the case at hand he observed, “It is submitted to the shock of this Court that the Station House Officer, the 4th respondent herein, had directed the petitioners along with their children to present themselves before the police station along with the photographs of the children for the purpose of a test identification parade. It is also submitted that the children have not yet been placed before the Board. These actions, if true, are unpardonable.” Prima facie thus, the court held that the SHO had acted “beyond his powers” especially since he had proceeded in contravention of the JJ Act. The bench noted that even though six months had elapsed after the commission of the alleged offence, the children had not been produced before the JJ Board till date. “This certainly amounts to harassment and an abuse of the powers,” the bench remarked. In such circumstances, the court directed, “there will be an interim stay of all further proceedings in Crime No……of 2019  and the 4th respondent is directed to place the records of the said case before the Juvenile Justice Board without any delay, pending further orders of this Court.” Inter alia, the court has ordered the Director General of Prosecution to get instructions in the Case and place the opinion of the Special Public Prosecutor for POCSO cases, Alappuzha District under whose advice the police is said to have acted and a copy of the FIR in a sealed cover for the consideration of the Court, by May 20, 2020.

first_img By News Highland – April 9, 2020 Twitter Homepage BannerNews An Bord Pleanala has overturned a decision by Donegal County Council against plans for an amusement arcade in Letterkenny and has given the green light for the development.Mr Conor Carey lodged an appeal to change the use of the existing ground floor office on Lower Main Street into an amusement arcade after it was initially refused planning permission by the Council.Donegal County Council’s planners felt that the proposed development was at odds with the town centre strategy and would negatively impact upon the buildings location within the wider town centre.They said that the arcade would detract from the achievement of a vibrant town centre, would fail to enrich the streetscape and it would not encourage traditional trade.In his appeal Mr Carey argued that the local authority failed to specify the particular reason why the arcade would impact the realisation of the Town Strategy and argued that the business would increase footfall, will prevent the unit from becoming vacant and will maintain active street frontage.In its decision, An Bord Pleanala acknowledged the concerns of the council but felt that this would was the appropriate location for and arcade given there is established night-time uses in the this area such as pubs.Permission was granted with eight conditions attached including a restriction on sound levels while there will also be restrictions on opening hours.The arcade will only be permitted to open from 9.30am – 11pm Sunday to Thursday and 9.30am – 12.30am Friday and Saturday.

Las Orogénesis del Paleozoico Inferior en el margen protoandino de América del Sur, Sierras Pampeanas, Argentina

first_imgEl margen proto-andino de Gondwana ha sido el escenario de al menos dos orogénesis desde el desmembramiento del supercontinente Rodinia al final del Neoprotrozoico, hasta el reagrupamiento de las masas continentales en Pangea al final del Carbonifero. Ambas orogénesis van precedidas de un periodo de apertura oceánica y sedimentación en márgenes pasivos y culminan en subducción oceánica con desarrollo de arcos-magmáticos de tipo cordillerano y colision de tipo continente-continente. La primera, orogénesis Pampeana, tiene lugar en el Cámbrico, en un intervalo de tiempo relativamente pequeño (535-520 Ma: etapas de subducción-arco magmático y colisión), y culmina con la acreción ortogonal de un pequeño terreno continental (terreno Pampeano) de naturaleza semiautóctona. Por el contrario, la orogénesis Famatiniana, tiene lugar en un periodo de Centro de Investigaciones Geológicas, Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Calle 1, nº 644, 1900 La Plata, 1 Argentina.

Casquet, E. Baldo, J. Dahlquist, R. J. Pankhurst, C. Galindo y J. Saavedra tiempo más dilatado, durante el Ordovícico y Silúrico (499-435 Ma). Durante esta orogénesis tuvo lugar la acreción de un terreno exótico a Gondwana, el terreno Precordillera (460 Ma). Este terreno está constituido por un basamento grenvilliano (aprox. 1.1Ga) y una cubierta sedimentaria de plataforma carbonatada de edad Cámbrico-Ordovícico. La acreción al margen de Gondwana fue probablemente oblicua, y el margen oriental del terreno Precordillera fue afectado por fuerte deformación y metamorfismo regional. El basamento de los cinturones andinos del Paleozoico Superior y Mesozoico situados al oeste de la Precordillera, parece estar constituido también por rocas metamórficas grenvillianas; con lo cual, gran parte de los Andes centrales entre los 26ºS y 34ºS se encuentra asentado sobre terrenos alóctonos. En cualquier caso, la paleogeografía de las masas continentales involucradas en la colisión de los terrenos exóticos durante el Paleozoico Inferior no se conoce bien todavía.last_img read more
