Oil rallies to best week in years after OPEC output deal | Reuters 3.12.2016 FirstPost: Bollywood
By Devika Krishna Kumar | NEW YORK NEW YORK Oil prices rallied for their best week in at least five years on Friday, steadying above $51 a barrel, following OPEC's decision to cut crude output to rein in a global glut that has weighed on prices for more than two years.After the deal was announced on Wednesday, the market focused on the implementation and impact of OPEC's first output cuts since 2008, to be joined by Russia and possibly other non-OPEC producers.Crude prices were pressured by data showing oil output in Russia rose in November to a post-Soviet high and Moscow's plan to use its record November oil production as its baseline when it cuts output.With cuts being implemented next year only against end-2016 levels, analysts said there was still a possibility that oversupply, which has halved oil prices since 2014, remains a factor next year."Global, and especially U.S., crude oil inventories are currently at extremely high levels after two years of massive oversupply," Societe Generale analysts ...

Merging boundaries through 'Theatre of transformation' 2.12.2016 deccanherald.com
Trapped deep in the despair of the merciless Syrian war, she turned a volunteer setting up field hospitals as bombs flew past. A nuclear physicist in post-war Munich, he stood up against the N-bomb as a weapon of deterrence. As Jagadishan, he resigned a high-profile job to join a campaign against GM cotton. Poet, performer and peace-builder of repute, Rama Mani donned these roles on stage with finesse, weaving together powerful testimonies of resistance, protest and a yearning to shape a humane, shared future. Lines of reality and hope, talk and performance blurred as Mani had the audience in rapt attention. She was delivering in her own characteristic style, the 17th Kappen memorial lecture here on Friday. It was Mani's 'Theatre of Transformation,' a dramatised recollection of memories from her 25 years' experience in peace-building in war-torn countries. In one moment, she was a 28-year-old Syrian, propped by a cap and gown as costumes. "Soldiers started firing at us, bombing us. But we had people to ...

Swiss nuclear exit vote raises prospect of more fossil fuels | Reuters 24.11.2016 FirstPost: World
By Vera Eckert and John Miller | ZURICH/FRANKFURT ZURICH/FRANKFURT Switzerland votes in a referendum on Sunday on whether to make a speedy withdrawal from atomic energy production, a move that would reduce nuclear risks but raise reliance on fossil fuels from Germany or imported nuclear power from France.The opposition Swiss Greens and Social Democrats have pushed for a vote since the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan, but the government and industry oppose a quick exit, saying Switzerland would be unable to replace power supplies with renewable energy.Recent surveys from the gfs.bern polling institute show the "Yes" and "No" camps in the referendum are neck and neck.Switzerland prides itself on the fact that two thirds of its power is hydroelectric, from reservoirs in the Alps, but it also counts on nuclear energy for a third of its power output.Anti-nuclear groups are pushing for it to follow neighbouring Germany, which shut 40 percent of its nuclear reactors after Fukushima and will close the rest by ...
