The Hamilton paper "The Changing Face of World Oil Markets" is outstanding IMNSHO, pretty much a must read - and very readable for work by an academic:

Last month, Khan told Reuters that he was aware of the risk of himself contracting the disease, which kills up to 90 percent of those infected. "I am afraid for my life, I must say, because I cherish my life," he said. "Health workers are prone to the disease because we are the first port of call for somebody who is sickened by disease. Even with the full protective clothing you put on, you are at risk."

Michel Chossudovsky - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In 2001, Chossudovsky founded the Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG), located in Montreal, Canada, becoming its editor and director. It is "committed to curbing the tide of globalisation and disarming the new world order".[6] CRG maintains websites in several languages, including the English-language, which are critical of United States foreign policy and NATO as well as the official explanation of the September 11 attacks in 2001 and the war on terror. He said that the Free Syrian Army was created by NATO.[7] Chossudovsky also claimed that deaths of protesters in the Maidan Square in Kiev were "triggered by Neo-Nazi elements", used "to break the legitimacy of a duly elected government."[8] He is a favoured commentator at Russia Today.[9] His opinion is regularly asked for by Press TV.[4][5][6]

At the time of the Kosovo war Mike Karadjis accused Chossudovsky of setting out a 'meticulous frame-up', 'full of half-truths, assumptions, and innuendoes about the Kosovo Liberation Army's alleged use of drug money', seeking to discredit the KLA.[10]In his book Bosnia, Kosova, and the West, Chossudovsky is referred to as a noted 'apologist for the Milošević regime'.[11]

Is the outbreak impacting any oil industry workers yet?

No, not at issue rather a humanitarian crisis - there is a fair bit of offshore oil exploration going on and IIRC most of the shoreside services are coming out of Ghana.

I sometimes wonder how many people think I said all the data is gamed. There actually is a serious issue brewing. With all the data mining and security scrubbing going on all those misquotes could be accumulating and may someday be mistaken for fact.

I think this was first explicated on Clarissa Explains it All (or maybe it was on Nova or the O'Reilly Show) but I couldn't focus on the episode.

I'm sorry, what was the question?


Footage of the goals bearing the title 'Young Brazilians get f**ked by entire German soccer team' (and other more explicit variants) quickly sprang up following the game (at least according to hundreds of screen grabs circulating Twitter), with the site eventually asking football fans to cease with the gag whilst getting a swipe in at Brazil's performance itself.

"Please stop uploading the game highlights to Pornhub... Our public humiliation category is full. #BrazilvsGermany," it tweeted.
