first_img Make a comment Business News The Prep League and arguably the Pasadena area’s most dominant volleyball player has made her choice.Westridge junior Allison Martinez, a member of the Youth National Team, will play her collegiate ball at Long Beach State.Martinez committed on Saturday after LBSU defeated Hawaii, the nation’s No. 12 team.“I am so excited to play for such a highly respected coach like Brian Gimmillaro,” Martinez said on Tuesday. “I am eager to learn from his vast knowledge and I’m looking forward to playing for a school with a long and rich history of great volleyball. I’ve gone through the last two years of the recruiting process and am so happy to have found my home at Long Beach State.”The first-place Tigers (14-2 overall, 7-1 in league) have been on a roll of late with Martinez leading the way, and they’ll get a chance Thursday at Poly to avenge their only Prep League setback this season.While the future is bright for the outside hitter, coach Otto Lacayo still gets Martinez for the next year-plus as they seek a Prep League and CIF title.“Allison is one of the hardest working athletes I have ever been around,” Lacayo said. “She’s always been working towards bigger things and this program couldn’t be more happy with her commitment to Long Beach State. Shortly after she told the school of her intentions, she was back in the gym getting reps.” 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it First Heatwave Expected Next Week Top of the News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Subscribe Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimescenter_img Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Hardin Center and the city of Gadsden with the our board.”Welch said the first steps toward a center were taken in 1984 and the Cultural Arts Foundation was created in partnership with the city of Gadsden.A recent poll showed that in 2013 the Gadsden Cultural Arts Foundation had a total economic impact of $3,193,799 and supported 105 full-time equivalent jobs.

Today, there is a 90 percent occupancy rate. That’s an indication of what the arts can mean to a city’s economy.”Mack Gibson, board chair, said, looking down the road 15 years, he envisions Troy’s interest in and support of the cultural arts playing an important role in the continuing development of downtown Troy and as a source of pride throughout the community.Pritchett said the annual board retreat is an opportunity to introduce new board members and officers and to access where the Johnson Center is and where it’s going.“At the board retreat, we looked at our vision for providing Pike County with the best of the cultural arts,” Pritchett said. “We used this time to brainstorm and come up with ideas to accomplish our funding needs and to plan events that will positively affect the county and be a draw for tourism.”The new board members for the year 2016 are Jeff Kervin, Bill Hopper and Ginny Hamm.Mack Holmes will chair the board with John Ramage, vice-chairman and Cliff Eubanks, treasurer.

In Libya, the recovery of a troubled oil industry is gathering pace

first_imgLibyan oil revival adds to Opec concernsLibya has long been dependent on oil revenues to bolster its national economy. It holds the largest oil reserves in Africa, and has been a member of the Opec group of oil-exporting countries since 1962.Oil and gas accounts for around 60% of national GDP, and back in February Prime Minister al-Serraj warned of risks to Libya’s financial security as a results of the blockades.NOC claims production outages have cost the Libyan economy almost $10bn in lost revenues since blockades started in January, and the company’s chairman Mustafa Sanalla has lamented the “disastrous effects on our national economy and the livelihood of Libyans”.Libya has been a member of Opec since 1962 (Credit: Opec)The resurgence of oil in the country comes at a challenging time, however, amid depressed prices and low global demand caused by the coronavirus pandemic.Members of Opec, along with allies including Russia, have been co-ordinating to limit their production activities since May in an effort to bring balance to an oversupplied market – currently at a rate of 7.7 million bpd.Under the existing agreement – from which Libya was excepted due to the conflict – members of the so-called Opec+ alliance had planned to ease this cutback to 5.8 million bpd from January onwards, but there are now discussions about whether or not to deepen the cuts once more.Recent weeks have seen resurgence of the virus in many parts of the world, with fresh lockdowns introduced across key European markets – dealing a blow to the demand outlook.The addition of new Libyan oil flowing into this oversaturated marketplace has complicated matters further, and benchmark crude prices have shown signs of dropping once more, having stabilised at around $40 per barrel in recent months.“Libya’s great comeback story is a thorn in the side of the Opec+ group, which is already struggling to keep oil prices afloat amid non-compliance among members and a deteriorating demand backdrop,” notes Rystad Energy.“Libya adding another 300,000-400,000 bpd of oil to an already oversupplied market would further skew the supply-demand imbalance, and put another layer of downside risk on oil prices.” The National Oil Corporation estimates oil blockades have cost the Libyan economy $10bn this year (Credit: Azahar Photography/Shutterstock) The recovery of oil production in Libya is rapidly gathering pace, at the end of a year in which civil war effectively shuttered the industry, cutting off a key source of revenue for the country.State-owned National Oil Corporation (NOC) declared in late October the “comprehensive ending of blockades in all Libyan fields and ports” as it lifted a force majeure on the last of country’s oil infrastructure to have been shut down during the conflict.Lifting of the blockades follows a formal truce between the rival groups – the incumbent administration of Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj and the Libyan National Army (LNA) led by Khalifa Haftar – that has allowed the country to begin ramping up oil production and export activities once more.Oil revenues became central to Libya’s latest civil conflict, with opposition leader Haftar demanding a greater share of the profits for the east of the country, away from the capital Tripoli where they are controlled by the government and central bank. Doubts over true pace of recovery in Libya oil industryAccording to Reuters news agency, industry sources claim Libya’s oil output rose to about 850,000 barrels per day (bpd) in early November. NOC has said it expects production to exceed one million bpd by the end of this month.Analysts have questioned the accuracy of these projections, however, with researchers at Rystad Energy estimating production levels of one million bpd will not be realised until February 2021.“With each day, there are reports that production keeps climbing, but we believe these estimates have been exaggerated and represent oil production ‘capacity’ coming online, rather than ‘real’ production numbers,” Rystad notes.During November, the group expects Libya’s oil production to average around 750,000 bpd.Either way, the country is undergoing a “remarkably swift build-up” of its output capacity, which effectively ground to a standstill for much of the year as blockades were deployed at oilfields and port terminals.Reports suggest NOC is targeting production levels of around 1.6 million bpd by the end of next year – roughly the same level as prior to the toppling of former leader Muammar Gaddafi nine years ago.Maintenance of key infrastructure is likely needed, says Rystad, given the long period of inactivity – a key reason for its more cautious estimate for production revival.“The ramp-up from the El Sharara oilfield is estimated to be slower due to lack of maintenance during the prolonged shutdown,” says Rystad analyst Nishant Bhushan, referring to one of the country’s most productive oilfields, where force majeure was lifted on 11 October.“Currently, we see Libya reaching one million bpd only by early February 2021, as maintenance and work-over needs to be sufficiently conducted across all the fields and oil transport pipelines.”center_img Oil production in the country effectively ground to a halt this year as key infrastructure was targeted by blockades amid civil warlast_img read more

Should Michael Gove’s tough love for the countrywide worry rural agents?

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Should Michael Gove’s tough love for the countrywide worry rural agents? previous nextHousing MarketShould Michael Gove’s tough love for the countrywide worry rural agents?The DEFRA minister’s interview with the Knight Frank blog warns of more change for rural economy after Brexit as direct payments to farmers are phased out.Nigel Lewis8th June 20180717 Views Rural agents could soon be in for a rough ride after Brexit if Michael Gove’s comments this week to Knight Frank’s blog are anything to go by.Tipped to become Home Secretary when Amber Rudd resigned recently, he was pipped to the post by former housing minister Sajid Javid.But Gove now has big reforms for the rural economy in his sights after the UK exits the EU next year.During the interview with Knight Frank’s Andrew Shirley for the estate agent’s blog, Gove said he was listening to farmers, but that the old system of direct payments was outdated and that he wanted a future farming policy that works for everyone, “including consumers and environmentalists,” he said.But Gove’s comments may signal difficulties ahead for agents who sell agricultural land, estates and rural properties.The keen brexiteer makes it clear that he believes the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy has not been good for the countryside, has discouraged entrepreneurial behaviour and, Knight Frank points out,  has helped prop up unprofitable businesses.“There is no doubt the current system of direct payments has held back the industry,” says Gove.“In many cases these payments have raised land prices and rents and stifled innovation.”But rural prices have been resistant to Brexit jitters so far, only easing off 3% over the past few months, Knight Frank says, prompted by demand outstripping supply in many areas of the UK as farmers and investors pile into the green stuff, and the generous tax reliefs and subsidies still on offer to farmers, despite Gove’s plans for change.knight frank Michael Gove amber rudd rural property Sajid Javid June 8, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Bread inflation rises YOY to 4.1%

first_imgInflation is expected to remain a resilient feature of the bread and cereals category through to the summer at least, a City analyst has warned.Shore Capital said the year-on-year inflation rate of bread goods and cereals rose to 4.1% during January, following what the firm described as “a surprise dip” to 3.2% for the category in December, with the annual rate of food inflation in the UK increasing to 4.5%.It comes as the Office of National Statistics (ONS) published the latest UK consumer price inflation rate for last month, revealing the annual level stood at 2.7% as of January, remaining unchanged for the last four months.The food and non-alcoholic beverages was earmarked as one of the biggest contributors to the level of inflation, second to alcohol and tobacco, with the ONS highlighting the upward pressure from bread and cereals in addition to fruit and vegetables.Analysts at Shore Capital said: “We have been writing for some time now of the upward pressure from rising food inflation, with concerns driven by the poor 2012 northern hemisphere harvest on soft commodity prices, and the impact as it feeds through the supply chain into bread, dairy and meat production.“However, such concerns have been compounded by recent sterling weakness, which is feeding through into the cost of imported goods, notably in fruit, vegetables and bread, according to the ONS report.”The firm added that a further increase in food inflation is likely to put further pressure on UK food industry volumes.last_img read more
