Halliburton shares fall as North America lags

Clients in North America, Halliburton's biggest market by revenue, began pulling back on some drilling services last year amid transportation bottlenecks in the largest U.S. production region and after oil prices slid sharply in the fourth quarter. Halliburton said it will reduce its 2019 capital spending budget by nearly 20 percent to $1.6 billion. Further reductions could be made if market conditions erode, executives said on the company's fourth quarter earnings call.

Halliburton profit beats on international demand, North America lags

Clients in North America, Halliburton's biggest market by revenue, began pulling back on some drilling services last year amid transportation bottlenecks in the largest U.S. production region and after oil prices slid sharply in the fourth quarter. An oil glut and concerns about a global economic slowdown have pushed U.S. crude down about 30 percent since their October high to around $53 a barrel. Houston-based Halliburton said revenue from North America fell about 2 percent to $3.3 billion ...

The Red Moon in the Italian Language

La luna rossa The red moon “Che fai tu, luna, in ciel, dimmi, che fai?” the writer Giacomo Leopardi (1798 –1837) asked in one of his most famous poems. “What are you doing, moon, in the sky, tell me, what are you doing?”  On a frigid night in January, the answer was clear: La luna piena (the full moon) was putting on a dazzling celestial show. Un’eclissi lunare totale (a total lunar eclipse) occurs only when the sun, earth and moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the earth in the...

Native American

What does it mean? I was born in America, I have no other homeland. By definition, doesn't that make me native American? My ancestors have been in North America since the early 1750s. Are Mexicans native Americans? There was no border until the Guadalupe Hidalgo treaty. If you lined up ten men, five Mexican and five Indians, would you be able to tell the difference? Legitimate question. Where did the Indians come from? Who did they displace when they came to north America? Who did they kill?...

Kinetic Directing Failed to Improve 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance'

None Why make a sequel to Ghost Rider (Johnston, 2007)? The property had only been fitfully popular over its nearly 40-year history, and never had same the staying power as most of Marvel's stable of characters. The first film, starring Nicholas Cage as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, was moderately successful, but was not particularly well-liked by critics or audiences. Since its release, the fifth ongoing Ghost Rider series was cancelled with Ghost Rider Vol. 5 #35 (July 2009) due to low sales. Sur...

How to Create a Long-Term Travel Budget: Financially Sustainable Travel

This post How to Create a Long-Term Travel Budget: Financially Sustainable Travel appeared first on The Professional Hobo. There are a lot of misnomers about financially sustainable travel. I guess it stands to reason: I coined the term, somewhat accidentally at that. Since those early days, it has been used in a variety of contexts that aren’t in the spirit of what (I intended) financially sustainable travel to be. Is it related to environmental sustainability? Nope. Is it about budget travel? ...

The Great Commission: what is it?

USA (MNN) – The Barna Group released research last year that shocked the Christian community in North America. According to the study conducted with the Seed Company, 51-percent of American churchgoers are not familiar with the term "Great Commission".

The 8 Best Defensive Forwards in Hockey History

  To many, high scoring, firewagon hockey carries the highest degree of entertainment. While others, this author included, prefer the bite-your-nails-to-the-knuckle closeness of a hard-fought, tactically masterful, defensive battle. Though many may not realize it while clamoring for larger nets, the elimination of the offside whistle and marbles to replace hockey pucks, the sporting world turns to the tightly-contested Stanley Cup Playoffs for the most rugged marathon of organized on the world s...

Need To De-Stress? Floating In Salt Water Might Be The Solution

Imagine floating in outer space. It’s pitch-dark and you’re naked. Three-quarters of your body is submerged in skin-temperature salt water that makes it difficult to tell where your body stops and the water begins. It’s so dark, there’s no perceptible difference between closing your eyes or leaving them open, aside from the slight sting of salt air. For some people, this sense of total blankness is rejuvenating . Others opt to press a button to turn the lights on. This is what floating in a s...

Confused Immigrants on a Wire

Birds on a wire today. Starlings, of course.When out with the dogs in winter, we often see large flocks of starlings, often with cowbirds and blackbirds mixed in, winging down to settle on cut-over corn fields and soy rakes, huddled on the lee side of shed roofs, and even settling on roads in order to make use of the warmth radiating up from the black tarmac.Believe it or not, the more than 200 million European Starlings found in North America today are direct descendents of approximately 100 b...

Lunar Eclipse II

In a bit of a coincidence, a total lunar eclipse will shine through American skies for the second January in a row. The entire eclipse will be visible from all of North America, with Hawaii seeing most of the action as well. Lunar eclipses occur when the full Moon passes through Earth’s long shadow. But the Moon’s orbit is tilted a bit with respect to Earth’s orbit around the Sun. So during most months, the full Moon passes a bit above or below the shadow. When the geometry is just right, though...

Soccer: Ibrahimovic taking it one year at a time with Galaxy

Ibrahimovic, who joined Galaxy in March after leaving Premier League side Manchester United, enjoyed an impressive debut in North America and was named MLS Newcomer of the Year. The 37-year-old was mentioned in transfer speculation involving his former team AC Milan last year but ultimately decided to return to the Galaxy in the hopes of taking them to the playoffs. "I probably could sign two years, three years, four years -- that is how much the Galaxy believe in me.

Technological progress and the global sex recession

We may live amidst what seems a libidinous culture, but oddly also an increasingly sexless time. Of course, the drop in early teen sex, and even more so teen pregnancies represents positive developments, but when lack of social interaction leads to celibacy in the twenties, thirties and beyond, the implications are less than wholesome. The Atlantic recently described a “sex recession” in the United States and most western countries, with fewer people dating and even those in relationship getting...
