    CORRUPTION IN EUROPE...

    Oil prices slipped below $48 a barrel Thursday as investors grappled with the prospect that global growth next year will slow more than originally feared, cutting demand for gasoline crude products. Oil prices have fallen about 65% in four months, plunging from a record $147.27 in mid-July.Investors are pricing in slowing crude demand growth from China, whose economy, the world's fourth largest, was once thought to be a counterweight to weakening demand from the U.S. and Europe. U.S. bank Morgan Stanley earlier this week cut its 2009 forecast for Chinese economic growth to 7.5% from 8.2%. The bank expects Asia outside of Japan to grow 5.5% next year, the U.S. economy to shrink 1.3% and Europe to contract 0.6%.

    Investors have brushed off two recent production cuts by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, and prices have continued to fall amid talk of a third quota output reduction next month.

    Qatar's prime minister, Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani, said Tuesday that "fair" oil prices of between $70 to $90 per barrel would ensure that expensive oil exploration could continue and help to avert price spikes in the future.

    However this decrease in crude prices does not affect one of Europes oldest economies...Portugal...were prices continue to be one of the highest

    in the world, even now as crude prices are at a three year low Portugal continues to have final consumer prices near the record $147.27 in mid-July....
    Oil consumption in Portugal this year has dropped more than 14% and all tendencies indicate that it will continue and pass the 16% !!! This arrogant attitude by the oil companies (GALP,BP,REPSOL,CEPSA) and government will not be forgotten as Portugal will shortly enter a period of elections for a new government, the population will certainly have the opportunity to elect a new government that will work for the people and not for the oil industry..

    OPEC CRUDE REDUCTION !!!

    Once more OPEC President Chakib Khelil told Reuters on Wednesday that OPEC may cut oil supplies again, possibly by the end of this month if prices keep falling and the world economy weakens further.

    Mr.Khelil should remember that the world economic situation began when OPEC oil producers,oil companies,governments,traders and speculation started forcing crude prices to record highs over $147 a barrel per day (bpd) in July... now the global economy faces a recession and oil prices are falling...Demand for oil is deteriorating week by week, fear global recession is worsening day by day...US crude oil stocks rose by 1.2 million barrels last week...Demand in the United States, the world's biggest consumer of oil, was expected to fall by more than 1 million bpd for the first time since 1980.

    The economic crisis had already led the IEA, to cut its assumption for 2008 world oil demand growth to the lowest rate in 15 years at just 440,000 barrels per day...London Brent crude traded at $52.65 a barrel yersterday 12-11-2008...

    This is the result of SPECULATION by all involved in the crude industry, if OPEC reduces production then it must be prepared to face a worse situation, demand for crude will drop by another 3%...

    Web Hosting:

    Starting a website can often be complicated, my doubt is the kind of hosting that we should use depending on the subject. Which is the best lodging in view of the contents of my site, or taking into account the type of Internet that I have, or the operating system, if it is blog or perhaps not, and many more questions. The problem starts right when you try to decide for one, since there are many in the market, and many people do not know how to act. Basically it is necessary to take into account the objective of the website / blog, it is entertainment, whether it is professional, if you want to pay more and have a reliable service, or you want to pay less and be subject to setbacks of the chosen domain.
    To facilitate this difficult task I found a perfect site to view these circumstances, through webhosting you could not only clarify many doubts but also can find out the best way forward in the field of hosting.
    For example, if you are a person that thinks in turms of the environment, you may think in Green Web Hosting or if you thinking in starting a blog you may want to read Best Blog Web Hosting.
    In most cases you must read what they have to say, find what the perfect hosting is !!!

    GM and BANKRUPTCY !!

    As the global financial situation causes many nations to enter a recession we see several companies closing sending to the unemployment list hundreds of workers...this scenario is a daily happening in one of Europe's oldest nations...Portugal.
    This situation is caused by the inflated consumer prices of energy (oil), wheat,rice and others..practiced by the respective companies and government...
    We have the example of the oil companies such as aGalp, BP, Repsol and Cepsa who still practice inflated oil prices at the pump, not passing to the motorist the international crude prices that are now around the $62 per barrel...consumers in Portugal are paying for oil at a price of $120 per barrel...
    The financial situation will continue to worsen as is the case with General Motors...this American car producer is very close to bankruptcy, according to some
    brokers the stock value for GM has been placed at "zero" .... this situation for the US will no doubt be catastrophic !!!!

    OBAMA transition team....

    WorldWatch reported that the new elected US President Barack Obama may start naming his Cabinet as early as Wednesday.

    Barack Obama were laying the groundwork to shift from campaign to White House transition -- the 10 weeks between the election and the inauguration isn't enough time to assemble a team to lead the country.

    The campaign was over when McCain called to concede ...Tonight's speech was about governing. It was a very serious tone -- he was setting the tone, taking his first steps as president.

    He is expected to name his White House chief of staff as early as Wednesday. Rep. Rahm Emanuel, a Chicago colleague, is the clear front-runner for the job.

    Emanuel helped lead Democrats to majority control of the House in 2006. He was elected to the House in 2002 and is currently the fourth-highest-ranking member of the chamber's Democratic leadership.

    He also worked on President Clinton's first presidential campaign and served as a White House adviser to Clinton.

    John Podesta, a former chief of staff under President Bill Clinton, will be among those leading Obama's transition team. Valerie Jarrett, one of Obama's top advisers, and Peter Rouse, Obama's Senate chief of staff, will also be involved the effort.

    Filling out his economic team is a top priority for Obama as he begins to implement a strategy to quell the economic crisis.

    This is one of the first times that I can remember that the secretary of the treasury is going to be almost as important as the secretary of state...Names circulating for the secretary of the treasury position include Timothy Geithner, Lawrence Summers and Paul Volcker, among others.

    Geithner helped deal with Wall Street's financial meltdown earlier this year, overseeing the acquisition of Bear Stearns by JPMorgan Chase and the bailouts of AIG and Lehman Brothers. He was appointed president of the New York Federal Reserve in November 2003.

    Summers was appointed treasury secretary in July 1999 and served as the chief economist of the World Bank from 1991 through 1993. Prior to his career in government, he taught economics at Harvard.

    Volcker is a former chairman of the Federal Reserve, serving under Presidents Carter and Reagan. He also worked in the private sector as an investment banker and headed the investigation into the United Nations' oil-for-food program for Iraq.

    However Obama could delay naming his economic team in order to avoid interfering with the G-20 summit on November 15

    Obama's national security team is another priority as the country fights wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It could also be an area where he goes outside his party for an appointee.

    Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel and current Defense Secretary Robert Gates are among the names floating around for that team.

    Hagel, who was elected to the Senate in 1996 and is a Vietnam veteran, has been a fierce critic of the Bush administration's handling of the Iraq war.

    Gates has served in Bush's cabinet for almost two years. He worked for the Central Intelligence Agency for 27 years, serving as its director from 1991 through 1993. He also served as deputy national security adviser under President George H. W. Bush.

    What Barack Obama has to do in the transition time is set the tone, if he reaches out to Republicans in the cabinet -- if he decided to keep Bob Gates at Defense -- that's fundamental.
