We are exporting petroleum liquids right now. We are producing more of both than we consume. You are right that we do still import some oil, but that number is continuing to go down. I suppose I should have been clearer on that. Petroleum liquids consist of oil produced from any source, and gas. But we are right now, the largest oil producer. We are actually producing over 9.12 million barrels of oil a day. Everything else is gas. It's expected that we will produce over 13...
I can't imagine where you got that information from, but it's not true. Nokia, the company, sold all of Nokia, the phone division, to Microsoft. All of it. What they're doing now, is showing a couple of developmental phones running Android.
Ah, Gatorguy, can't help but to love him!
In addition, even with oil pricing at about $65 a barrel, solar and wind generated power is now at production cost par with fossil files. This is a major milestone. If dropping costs there can match dropping fossil fuels, we'll finally see serious increases in their use. But no doubt, fossil fuel prices will rise again, at some point, making them even more competitive.
Nope!
Not really. People should read that book.Going by talks with people around at the time, as well as documents, it was shown that the Japanese intended to invade the entire southeast Asia area in the interest of, as they thought of it "Defending the Empire". What they actually meant by that was expanding the Empire. They knew the risk of doing that before they invaded Singapore, and American interests. They believed that they would win a short, surprise war against the USA,...
Except that that's untrue. There's a great new book out about Hirohito. It's called:Hirohito and the making of modern Japan.It's a scholarly work of 2000 pages. It shows how Japan evolved, but was formed from late 1880 through the death of Hirohito. A lot of what we "know" is myth. A lot of that myth was fostered by the USA after the war, and the Japanese government. In reality, the sanctions resulted from Japanese aggression, not the other way around.
The fall is interesting because the bank hike was designed to raise the ruble, which is what happened right after the hike was announced. The ruble rose by 9% at first. I wonder why it's fallen so much shortly after that. Russia's economy is in no danger of and collapse soon, but they are in a recession, and inflation is 9%. The biggest problem for them now, is that they're oil production is inefficient, with equipment that's not up to western standards. With most of...
Ooh! I've explained this some time ago. As someone who previously was an electronics manufacturer, I know secrets. Companies can claim shipped numbers that aren't really correct. There's a trick to that if they do sell a lot of product through some distributors or retailers, and so are friendly with them.So let's simplify this for the sake of the argument, and use numbers that are exaggerated for the sake of the argument.So a manufacturer ships a million devices to a major...
Not having read the report, I can't say whether it's them making the mistake or not. The brand name for the entire line of phones remains Nokia, not Microsoft. So Gartner could be labeling the line that way. Until it changes, but acknowledging that Microsoft now owns that line. But our writer should be calling them Microsoft phones.Microsoft has 18 months from the date of the sales to change the name of the line from Nokia to whatever they want to call it. Of they come up...
