Good, thoughtful and proactive article on how the use of technology is a barrier to effective communication.
The creation of “virtual distance” and how it affects our lives.

Where is the Floor Price

When Saudi price cut was announced, the first reaction was a rapid rise in oil prices and oil stock prices. And, then a short period later, both tanked. My own _guess_ is that WTI prices will stay in the $70s to low $80s for a substantial period, say at least six months.

The move likely paves the way for further crude-price declines and adds to pressure on U.S. energy producers.

Photography at Lake Louise

On October 27, 2014 I went to photograph Lake Louise in Banff, Alberta. While I have been there countless times, I am always hoping to capture a better image than I have before.

I arrived early in the morning, before sunrise, and the temperature was near 0C or 32F. At about 8:15 a.m., the sun finally began to appear over the mountains. After I captured this photograph, I waited for a while longer hoping to get better or more even light. When I felt that was not likely to happen anytime soon, I headed toward the other end of the lake, closer to the base of the glacier.

Calgary's Peace Bridge

Along with Canadian cities Vancouver and Toronto, Calgary typically places among the top ten in the Economist’s annual ranking of the most livable cities. And earlier this year, The New York Times published an article "52 Places to Go in 2014" which featured the Peace Bridge, as Calgary’s entry, at number 17. Having seen Chris Bolin’s striking photograph, I knew I wanted to capture my own image.

An interesting, but sad, tragic, quirky story.

Saudi oil min says ready to raise output if new clients emerge

Reuters article Saudi oil min says ready to raise output if new clients emerge:

Dec 22 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia is prepared to increase its oil output and claim a bigger market share to meet the demands of any new customers, Monday's edition of the Saudi-owned al-Hayat newspaper quoted the kingdom's oil minister as saying.

Asked if Saudi Arabia wanted to maintain a market share of 9.7 million barrels per day, Ali al-Naimi told the newspaper: "Yes, unless a new client comes along and then we may increase it."

Big Oil Feels the Need to Get Smaller by WSJ

Good article outlining how costs have grown.
Exxon, Shell and Chevron have lower profit margins than a decade ago, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis, prompting them to shelve expansion plans and shed operations.

An informative article about U.S. Oil Shale

#oil #oilprices  
Oil prices would need to fall at least another $20 a barrel to choke off the U.S. energy boom, industry experts say, though some smaller American producers would face serious problems from a more modest decline.

Here's a photograph I took on Saturday, August 24, 2013 early in the morning, just as the sun was rising above the horizon. I was east of the Center Street Bridge shooting in a southwestern direction.

Here's a photograph I took on Sunday, August 25, 2013 in the evening. I was just west of the Louise Bridge shooting in eastern direction. You can see several people rafting on the Bow River.

Truly tragic beyond comprehension. In November, I saw the Bolshoi's performance of The Pharaoh’s Daughter at a Cineplex. I wish Sergei Filin well and hope that he recovers his eyesight. And, I wish the Bolshoi Ballet well, too.
