Tech Talk: How long do bull and bear markets last?
By Peter McKenzie-Brown Bull markets are when it's easiest to make money in the markets, but how long do they last? The records go back more than two centuries, and the
information is surprising. During the two centuries that ended in 2000, bull
markets ave...

Enjoyed finishing a little piece on Irish history. Fun piece of work. http://languageinstinct.blogspot.ca/2016/06/some-notes-on-ireland.html
What Ireland does best is celebrate its history, and this is a year of celebration. On a recent visit to the country to visit family (in my case, in-laws), we luxuriated in the charm and beauty of the country, and its past. ...

Tech Talk: The

certainly one of the longest in history. Interest rates have been a huge

Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro has designated every Friday in the months of April and May as a non-working holiday, a bid to save electricity as a prolonged drought pushes water levels to a critical threshold at hydro-generation plants.

Introduction

A Calgary-based author and writer, during the last two decades I have done work for several corporate clients and also for industry and business publications – notably the trade magazines Oilweek and Oilsands Review. Prior to beginning my writing career, I worked for the Canadian Petroleum Association (CPA, a forerunner to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers) and for Gulf Oil Canada – then part of an integrated global oil company.

British by birth, I am American by upbringing and Canadian by choice.

My books include Barbecues, Booms and Blogs: Fifty Years of Public Relations in Calgary (2008; co-editor and contributor); Reflections on Communicative Language Teaching (2007); In Balance: An Account of Alberta’s CA Profession (2000); The Richness of Discovery: Amoco’s First Fifty Years in Canada (1998); and The Great Oil Age: The Petroleum Industry in Canada (1993, with Gordon Jaremko and David Finch). I also contributed a five-part series on the “History of the petroleum industry in Canada” to Wikipedia (2006)
