© Sputnik / Grigory SisoevOil Output Cut Deal Promotes Price Stabilization - Russian MinsiterST PETERSBURG (Sputnik), Anastasia Dmitrieva – There is no doubt that the decision of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and non-cartel oil producers to reduce crude output is stabilizing and helping to support the global oil market, BP Group Chief Executive Robert Dudley told Sputnik on Thursday. "There's no question this decision will help support the market, its unprecedented for OPEC and non-OPEC countries to make an agreement. It is already stabilizing the market," Dudley said on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). Moreover, BP is considering several new areas of cooperation with Russian energy giant Gazprom in the gas sector, BP Group Chief Executive Robert Dudley told Sputnik on Thursday. "We have a very good strategic relationship as a … [Read more...] about No Doubt OPEC+ Move on Oil Output Cuts to Stabilize Market – BP Chief

London: The most potent outcome of the 2019 British election for India is what didn’t happen. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn didn’t win. Any outcome can be seen in obviously inverted ways such as this, but Corbyn wasn’t just another alternative to the winner in a foreign election. Corbyn looking to the world and setting Labour policy to deal with it was targeting India first. The party manifesto pointed to Kashmir as the first place where a Labour government would want to intervene. It was a fight he seemed to have been looking forward to keenly. His loss and unceremonious exit mean a long-drawn diplomatic war with India has been averted. India had a borderline skirmish with Corbyn already following the Labour Party resolution on Kashmir earlier this year. That resolution did a lot more than express concern over rights. It accused the Indian government of ordering and organising rapes in Kashmir Valley. The resolution was slipped in and passed insidiously towards the … [Read more...] about Don’t Mess with India or Indians in UK: The Diaspora’s Message to Labour in Punishing Defeat for Corbyn
It’s a good time to be in the market for a gaming laptop that doesn’t look stupid. Higher-powered laptops have begun to tick crucial checkboxes across the board, with smaller, super-powered GPUs landing in much less garish designs. In some cases, the result is a laptop you’ll love using—and won’t be ashamed to be seen using in public. One of the latest to catch our eye is Alienware’s “R3” update to its 13-inch model. While some of its SKUs may not win affordability awards, the R3 officially counts as a damned good laptop, gaming or otherwise. If your budget has room for a single portable productivity machine, Alienware might have the right balance of power, weight, design, and functionality for you, not to mention decent battery life in a pinch. But first, let’s talk about this laptop’s tushie. Baby got back The Alienware 13 R3’s most unique design “feature” may weird you out at first. With its … [Read more...] about Alienware 13 R3: Powerful and pretty, if you don’t mind junk in the trunk
The most mesmerising moment in Going Clear, Alex Gibney’s wrecking-ball job on Scientology, watched so far by 5.5 million Americans, is a clip of leading church executives singing along to a clunking 1980s rock anthem, We Stand Tall. Disciples wave candles and sway in bad knitwear but, by this point in the HBO documentary, we know that the church allegedly blackmails adherents over their sex lives; that it is thuggish to those who question its conduct; that founder L Ron Hubbard was a conman who switched from writing bad science fiction to bad space religion; that his successor “Pope” David Miscavige is portrayed as a psychopath who has repeatedly hit and tortured his staff. So, the clip of Scientologists singing along with Miscavige is sinister, an eerie negative of thousands of North Koreans weeping at the death of mass murderer Kim Jong Il. It feels like brainwashing in action. The North Koreans have an excuse for going along with thought control lest they end up … [Read more...] about Going Clear: the film Scientologists don’t want you to see
There has been outrage this week after a man, Steve Foster, was handcuffed “for eating a sandwich,” as the media has falsely characterized it. A top Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) official has issued a formal apology, but that of course did not quell the storm or stave off cries of racism. There seems to be widespread agreement in the media, and on social media, that the officer is a bully and probably racist, and the man he detained is an innocent victim of bigoted police tactics. This conclusion is unjustified and absurd. The controversy stems from yet another suspiciously out-of-context video of a heated interaction between a black man and a white police officer. The footage begins with the officer telling Foster he’s detained and Foster cussing out the officer and refusing to comply. We do not see how the interaction began. It is claimed by Foster that the officer ignored other people eating, singling him out instead. We do not see any of those other … [Read more...] about WALSH: The Story About The Guy ‘Arrested For Eating A Sandwich’ Is Yet Another Phony Outrage. Don’t Fall For It.
“To hell with those who don’t understand” was Ravi Shastri’s inimitable response to the sceptics, who have constantly made conjectures about his alleged frosty relationship with BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. A week back, it was Ganguly who had cleared the air on his part making it clear that rumours of bad blood between him and the head coach of the Indian cricket team are merely “speculations”.“As far as the Sourav-Shastri ‘game’ goes, that is a brilliant chaat and bhelpuri for the media with all mirch and masala,” Shastri said during ‘India Today’ channel’s special programme ‘Inspiration’. “What he (Ganguly) has done as a cricketer, I have got utmost respect. He took over Indian cricket at the most troubled times, post the match-fixing era when the Indian cricket was in shambles. You needed the faith of the people to comeback and I respect that. And if … [Read more...] about To hell with them who don’t understand: Ravi Shatsri on relationship with Sourav Ganguly
