Oil Price War May Benefit Both US Shale And Saudi Arabia
By BFP Staff Friday, April 24, 2015

Even as financial commentators on CNBC are starting to come around to the idea of a bottom in oil prices, the key question for US oil producers remains one of timing. How long will the oil price slump last? Is this a relatively short term event like 2008, or a longer term slump like the one in the mid 1980’s? After the oil price crash in 1985, it took almost twenty years for prices to revert to previous levels. If oil does not return to $100 a barrel until 2035, there will be a lot less shale companies around. Some market commentators have cited hedging as a potential source of safety for oil producers, but the truth is that given most firm’s individual levels of hedging and the price of oil today, the hedges are more of a Band-Aid over a gunshot wound than anything else.

By Ernesto Pardo Thursday, April 23, 2015
The book ‘O United Nation’ written by Sinha M. A. Sayeed, a Bangladeshi and published by Bangladesh Political Science Association deserves to be noted with the profoundest understanding and regard given that it deals with almost all the foremost issues in the contemporary world surrounding UN. Sinha’s positive look at the UN and its overall activities is a clear message to those who feel free and inspired to see a world of peace, harmony and happiness under all the circumstances, approving or not.

Is This Where Investors Should Be Looking When Oil Recovers?
By BFP Staff Wednesday, April 22, 2015
By James Stafford of Oilprice.com
When oil prices recover-and plenty of analysts think the climb back up will start soon-Canada’s western frontier of Saskatchewan and neighboring Alberta will ‘still have the edge’, according to a report from TD Economics.
Depressed oil prices may have skewed the view from Canada’s oil-producing west, but this will be one of the better places to bet on the oil rebound.

Vitamin C: If It’s Good For Gorillas Why Not Us
By Dr. Gifford Jones Thursday, October 21, 2010
Are you headed for a heart attack because of “marginal scurvy”, a condition resulting from a lack of vitamin C? Moreover, if vitamin C is sound medicine for gorillas, why isn’t it good for us? And in the 16th century, why did the ship’s cat survive long sea voyages when its sailors died from scurvy?
Today, we know that sailors of old, lacking vitamin C, died of this preventable disease. A shortage of fresh fruit in their diet resulted in degeneration of blood vessels, hemorrhage and death.
Networked Devices Spread Your Photos, Music Around
By Jim Bray Thursday, December 16, 2010
Media servers are becoming popular in this age of wireless home networks, delivering audio and video content from a computer or the Internet to whatever device you may want to use, within reason.
I usually use such devices to stream music, because most of the videos I watch are on Blu-ray and no matter how much hype you hear about downloads taking over, there are still bandwidth and file compatibility issues. I admit reluctantly to accessing YouTube and its ilk for some casual viewing sometimes, but media servers are increasingly playing back music in other rooms of my house.
