Arctic blast loosening grip on eastern US

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — After a brutally cold Monday, the eastern U.S. will be a bit warmer on Tuesday.Wind chills Monday reached -30 in Albany, New York; -17 in New York City; -16 in Boston and -10 in Philadelphia.Although slightly warmer, wind chills Tuesday morning are still near or below zero in much of the Northeast, with the cold extending all the way into the Southeast. The wind chill in Tampa, Florida Tuesday morning should be in the 40s.A new storm developing in the central U.S. is forecast to move north into Canada, and, as a result, the warmer section of that storm will overtake much of the east, pushing up temperatures over the next 24 to 36 hours. Tampa will see a Wednesday high of near 80 degrees, while New York and Boston will be back up around 40.Much of the Northeast Tuesday morning remains under wind chill alerts, which should subside by late morning as the cold loses its grip with milder air moving in.The new storm in the West, meanwhile, is bringing snow into the Rockies and the upper Midwest. Wind alerts have been issued for this storm from Colorado to Michigan, including a blizzard warning just east of Denver with gusts of up to 45 mph. Heavy snow, as much as 10 inches, is making for dangerous travel conditions Tuesday morning.Throughout Tuesday, bands of heavy snow will be moving into the northern Plains as well as parts of Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin, with snowfall rates of more than 1 inch per hour possible. By early evening, snow may just barely reach Chicago, dropping in bursts during rush hour.The snow is likely to last through the night in the upper Midwest, with the heaviest totals from Iowa to Wisconsin, with more than 6 inches possible locally.Heavy rain also is expected from Texas to Ohio, with localized flooding possible.With colder air traveling behind this storm, parts of the southern U.S. may see a wintry mix on Wednesday and into Thursday. With the storm pulling milder air into the eastern U.S., precipitation in the major Northeast cities should stay as rain, not snow.Another major cold blast could be following this new storm, bringing to the Midwest more brutally cold wind chills by the end of the week.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Colorado Aims For 80% Capacity Concerts By July 2021

first_imgAs vaccine distribution continues around the country and new COVID-19 cases trend downward, the state of Colorado is hopeful that concerts could return at near-full capacity by July.The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment this week shared with Colorado live music industry leaders a framework for reopening in 2021. As CDPHE told Westword in a statement, “We shared projections with stakeholders recently, including the possibility of expanding event and restaurant capacity to 75-80 percent in July.”The Westword report goes into further detail about the CDPHE’s plan as presented to stakeholders: ” By April 1, as most counties move to Level Blue on what would then be CDPHE’s COVID Dial 3.0, live events could return at 50 percent capacity with six-foot social distancing; by May 1, they could return at 60 percent capacity with six-foot social distancing, and in July and beyond, at Level Green, they could return at 75 to 80 percent capacity with three-foot social distancing or even no social distancing, depending on how many people have been vaccinated by then.”The CDPHE also sought to temper expectations with regard to the relative optimism of the reopening plan for live events: “Please note that the projections we shared are not concrete and were presented to help the industry plan for the future. We regularly share best guesses for what we expect in the coming months, with a mutual understanding that specific parameters and timelines will change as the pandemic changes. But we have a strong commitment to help our businesses plan for the upcoming months, and so regularly share information.”Related: Red Rocks Amphitheatre Anticipates Limited Capacity Concerts For Summer 2021The news from Colorado comes as COVID-imposed live music lockdowns begin to ease nationwide. While short-term cancellations are still coming by the day, there appears to be hope that the live events industry could make a comeback in the second half of this year. Summer Camp Music Festival Chillicothe, Illinois just announced its new dates in August of this year. In New Jersey and New York, fans are beginning to return to large venues at highly limited capacities. Madison Square Garden this past week even announced a new October concert date.Meanwhile, the Colorado music scene’s revival is already underway, with an increasing number of socially-distanced, limited-capacity shows being announced. Live For Live Music’s The Funk Sessions series will return for its second 2021 installment at Denver’s Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom on March 11th and March 12th.

DW: Non-OPEC NOCs best positioned for OPEC meeting outcome

first_imgThe end of one of the worst downturns in the history of oil and gas may be in sight, as OPEC’s November meeting looms large – bringing with it fresh hopes of a production cut and consequent market rebalancing said Douglas-Westwood, an energy intelligence group, in its DW Monday report.In this context, DW has recently undertaken an analysis of 15 major upstream players, to understand prospects for the industry should a near-term upswing in oil prices happen.Since the downturn began, DW says, cutting Capex across all business segments has been one of the primary methods of improving profitability and free cash flow for E&P companies – with spending in the first nine months of 2016 around 45 percent lower than that of 2014.Over the same period, cash flow from operating activities has been squeezed, as falling oil prices have reduced revenues and price hedges have expired.Despite the downturn, IOC dividend payouts have remained fairly steady, due to an emphasis on maintaining investor confidence in future performance – thus sustaining access to liquidity and credit.However, DW said that IOCs have had to pay a heavy price, cutting Capex, selling assets and increasing debt, with free cash flows turning negative, despite relatively strong downstream performance. While IOC free cash flows have made movements back to neutrality in Q3 2016, only Shell, ExxonMobil and Chevron have returned to the black.Given that dividend payments are unlikely to be cut by IOC companies, the intelligence group believes that a significant uptick in oil price after OPEC’s meeting would be required to spur new large-scale investment.DW’s analysis shows that non-OPEC National Oil Companies (NOCs), on the other hand, have been quick to cut dividend payments during the downturn, alongside Capex reductions, as greater emphasis is placed on profitability and free cash flow.The group had the highest free cash flow in Q3 2016 of the 15 companies studied by DW (5 of which Non-OPEC NOC), amounting to $10 billion. As a result, DW believes that this group is particularly well placed in the current market, as well as being able to quickly react to any improvements in project economics in the wake of the OPEC meeting.Free Cash Flow and Capital Expenditures for Selected Independents, IOCs and Non-OPEC NOCs, Q1 2014-Q3 2016; Source: Company Reportslast_img read more

Powered by Firework India’s leading goal-scorer Sunil Chhetri will miss out the Jordan international friendly at the at the King Abdullah II Stadium in Amman on November 17. Chhetri suffered a grade one ankle injury at the match between Bengaluru FC and Kerala Blasters in the Hero ISL game on November 5.Advertisement Sunil Chhetri is ruled out of India vs. Jordan game due to injurySandesh Jhingan lodged a sliding tackle at the 17th minute on Sunil Chhetri in order to save a goal. Regardless of it, the ball found the back of the net. However, Chhettri couldn’t celebrate his goal as he laid down in agonizing pain of the mistimed tackle.The injury didn’t seem to be too serious in the first instance as he played out the full ninety minutes. However, MRI reports indicate that it is a matter of serious concern.Advertisement Here are the highlights of the pertaining game where one can see the dangerous tackle which ultimately injured Chhetri:“The BFC Medical Team have shared the MRI reports and medical assessments and we have scrutinized them thoroughly. Sunil needs rest of around two weeks and proper rehabilitation after which he can get back to training,” said the Indian National Team physiotherapist Gigy George.The doctor of the squad, Shervin Sheriff, further added, “He can’t travel with this injury as it’s a weight-bearing joint. He needs to have proper rest along with the rehab programme for a speedy recovery. We are closely monitoring the situation and following it up with the club medical team and Sunil himself.”The Blue Tigers are heavily dependent on Sunil Chhetri to get a favorable result. The Bengaluru FC captain’s absence would alter the plans of Stephen Constantine and Indian team heading into the Jordan game drastically.  Advertisementlast_img read more
