Platts: U.S. thermal coal exports to fall 10 million tons in 2019, drop further in 2020

first_imgPlatts: U.S. thermal coal exports to fall 10 million tons in 2019, drop further in 2020 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Platts:U.S. thermal coal exports are expected to total 44 million mt in 2019, down 10 million mt from 2018, with another drop of 8.6 million mt in 2020 given uncompetitive US coal, according to S&P Global Platts Analytics.U.S. exports continue to slow this year, Platts Analytics said in a report, “with 1H19 U.S. thermal exports falling 4.3 million mt y-o-y and preliminary vessel tracking data showing that they likely came in lower in July as well.”Platts Analytics lowered its full-year thermal coal export forecast to 44 million mt, a 10 million mt drop from 2018. In 2020, Platts analysts project another 8.6 million mt drop, “which is in line with our prior forecasts for a considerable slowdown in US thermal exports.”“CAPP and NAPP coals look uncompetitive as a supply source at ARA, and ILB deliveries face competition from Russian and Colombian coals,” the report said, adding that falling petcoke prices should also make it harder to sell NAPP coal into India as a replacement for petcoke.“Global seaborne thermal coal prices fell again over the last month,” following a modest rebound in July, Platts Analytics said. “With the slide in all of the major coal markets in August, prices have generally declined to their lowest points of 2019, a three-year low.”“Weak electricity and coal demand growth in China was the major driving factor,” the analysts wrote. “We continue to believe Pacific Basin seaborne thermal coal prices will remain under pressure over the short term as we maintain our view that Chinese import demand should fade in 2H19 and Northeast Asian import demand will end the year lower,” Platts Analytics wrote.More: Platts Analytics lowers U.S. thermal coal exports forecast to 44 million mt in 2019, down another 8.6 million mt in 2020last_img read more

Board of Governors honorsfive senior Bar members

first_img November 15, 2002 Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Regular News Board of Governors honors five senior Bar members Senior EditorCesar Alvarez tells this story:As a young lawyer, he had an office near Robert Traurig, one of the founding partners of the now national law firm of Greenberg Traurig. Traurig requested a donation for a charity.Alvarez, now the managing partner at Greenberg Traurig, said he presented a check to Traurig and told him, “’I wrote this check until it hurt.’ He tore it up and said, ‘I want you to write a check until you feel good.’” That gave Alvarez pause. After thinking about it hard, he wound up writing a bigger check — and learned a valuable lesson about giving back to the community.Such lessons in giving, professionalism, passion for the law, and devotion to clients were illustrated repeatedly as the Bar Board of Governors paused during its October 25 meeting in Coconut Grove to honor five lions of the legal profession. It was the second time, as the Bar travels around the state for its sessions, that President Tod Aronovitz has taken the opportunity to honor senior lawyers who have made their mark on the profession.Recognized at the October meeting were Robert Traurig, former Bar and ABA President Chesterfield Smith, retired federal District Court Judge William Hoeveler, retired 11th Circuit Judge Ray Pearson, and veteran trial lawyer J.B. Spence.“Ray Pearson can be described in six words,” said former Bar President Herman Russomanno. “‘What can I do for you?’ This has been his motto throughout his life, to help others.”A decorated Army captain who fought in the Battle of the Bulge, Pearson got his law degree after the war and after practicing for several years, became a judge on the Court of Crimes and then a circuit judge. He left the bench and helped found the firm that is now Richman Greer Weil Brumbaugh Mirabito & Christensen, where he remains of counsel.Russomanno noted that a Dade County pro bono award is named after Pearson, he has been active in civic and religious activities, and he always took time to encourage other members of the firm. “He relished in the accomplishments of the people around him,” he said. “He’s taught all of us that civility is not a sign of weakness, but a badge of honor.”Alvarez said that Traurig always demonstrated his three passions: for the law and the firm, for the community, and for the country. He regularly handled pro bono zoning and other matters for churches and synagogues and was active with several other civic and charitable groups.Alvarez recalled that having his office close to Traurig’s wasn’t necessarily considered a good thing. “Not only was he working harder than anybody else, he had a lot of causes and he would see you and ask you to help,” he said with a smile.Referring to the Bar’s Dignity in Law campaign and the five lawyers being honored, Alvarez told the board, “You can simplify that campaign if you can get Florida Bar lawyers to be just like Bob Traurig, to be just like Chesterfield Smith, to be just like Judge Pearson.. . . They are our role models.”Board member David Rothman called Hoeveler “the greatest judge I have ever known. . . because what he did, everything he did, is make people around him better.”The only time he ever saw Hoeveler scold someone in court was when the opposing counsel in a case twice called a witness a liar.He noted in June 2001 at the judicial luncheon at the Bar’s Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, the Bar’s Committee on Professionalism and the Supreme Court’s Commission on Professionalism presented Hoeveler with the panel’s first joint professionalism award and named it after him.“Judge Hoeveler is always the one we called upon when we needed someone to stand tall, literally and figuratively, to help the profession,” Rothman said. “When he spoke, we listened. And when he spoke, he made sense.”Former Bar President Edward Blumberg said that Spence, who was raised on an Arkansas farm and served in the U.S. Navy during WWII in both the Atlantic and Pacific, attributed his success as a lawyer to mentoring from Perry Nichols. And his career has been marked by a readiness to mentor others.Blumberg said his mentor, Cecil Pickle, told him that Spence “was the lawyer I should try to be. You can always believe everything he says. He’s trustworthy and he’s honest.”He noted that a book of great closing arguments includes one Spence used in a case involving the death of an 8 year old from anesthesia. Blumberg said when he had a similar case, he decided there was no way he could improve upon that and confessed he used Spence’s closing argument — and won twice what he was asking.Bar President-elect Miles McGrane, who introduced Smith, told another story on Spence. He said Spence always claimed he and other plaintiff’s lawyers worked very hard to get Hoeveler confirmed as a federal judge, because Hoeveler “was the defense lawyer who kept consistently beating them.”As for Smith, McGrane noted he got an entire chapter in newscaster Tom Brokaw’s book, “The Greatest Generation.” One of his many notable achievements came as ABA president in helping the country weather the Watergate crisis by insisting no one, even the U.S. president, was above the law.His work for legal services has resulted in the legal services building in Miami being named after him, he added.“From our viewpoint, Chesterfield Smith is a great lawyer, a lawyer who has made roads for us much easier to follow,” McGrane said. “We are proud you are a lawyer, and we are proud you are one of us. We hope that every day we live up to the high standards you have set for us.” Board of Governors honorsfive senior Bar memberslast_img read more

5 things to do when you’re stuck in a rut

He keeps the credit union … Web: Details No matter what it is that’s got you down, when you’re stuck in a rut it can be extremely difficult to be motivated or inspired. If you find yourself in a rut, here are a few ideas for getting yourself going in the right direction again.Hit the gym: A good workout can do as much for your brain as it does for your body. Working up a good sweat and getting your blood pumping may be just what you need to get out of the slump you’re in. Pop in your headphones, put on some feel-good music, get your heart racing, and let your thoughts transform.Get uncomfortable: Every once in a while, you need to mix it up. Breaking your routine can lead to new and creative ideas. Maybe you don’t love going to the gym early in the morning, but changing up your schedule may help get those creative juices flowing again.Avoid being alone: When you’re in a rut, you may have the same unproductive thoughts circling round and round in your head. Spend some time with those friends and family members who support you. It’s never a bad idea to have someone to bounce ideas and thoughts off of.Check out: Sometimes, your brain needs to refocus. The easiest way to do this is to give your mind a break from its current thoughts. Head to the Barnes and Noble or Redbox near you and find a book or movie to transport you to another world. When you come back to reality, you may find your brain is working the way you want it to again.Mix it up: For me, there’s nothing better than changing it up. Get away from your desk. Go work at an outside table or a window seat somewhere. Rearrange all of the furniture in your living room. Let more sunlight flood your space. Changing your view is a great way to be inspired when you’re feeling less than creative.last_img read more

Barca New Signing Already Playing Like Messi, Ronaldo

first_imgOne of Barcelona’s newest signing is already drawing comparisons with like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. One room for improvement the analysis found on Trincao’s game is his passing. But based on his overall attributes, the analysis suggests that Trincao could be used as the missing wide man for the Catalans and should he be able to exceed expectations, he may even be used in that Messi role no one has been able to fill in for years. Aside from being compared to Messi, some in soccer also dubbed Trincao as the next Ronaldo. The comparison came earlier in February when Barcelona first announced that they are signing Trincao in summer. Before the lockdown, Trincão was enjoying a productive season for Braga, scoring 7 goals and providing 5 assists to date. He also helped Braga win the Portuguese League Cup this season, its first major title since 2016. The silky left-footed forward drew the eye of several of Europe’s biggest clubs when he led Portugal’s under-19s to victory at the 2018 European Championships, finishing the tournament with the most goals and most assists. In a recent interview with PortuGOAL, Trincao revealed his thoughts about having the opportunity to play with Messi . According to the youngster, playing with “Leo” is dream come true and he’s already starting to gather information about the club. read also:Barca consider swoop for ‘new Ronaldo’ “I’m really looking forward to playing with Messi. When the transfer was completed it was an amazing feeling, a dream come true for me. Abel Ruiz has spoken to me glowingly about what I can expect at Barcelona. He’s told me about the players, the city, everything,” Trincao said. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Francisco Trincao is a 20-year-old forward from Portugal. He was the joint-top scorer at the European Under-19 Championship in 2018 and is highly expected to provide a further attacking option for Barcelona once the 2020-21 season gets under way. In fact, as early as now, Trincao is already being touted as the next Messi. To put Trincao’s case into context, Total Football Analysis dug deeper into his game and revealed that generally speaking, the Portuguese youngster really resembles the playing style of a young Messi. According to the analysis, Trincao, just like Messi, is a highly versatile forward who is most effective when given a free license on either of the flanks. He is, however, “most comfortable as the out-and-out no. 7 over on the right-wing where he can either be a width provider or cut inside to shoot with his preferred left foot.” Though his feats are still far from the Argentine superstar, the analysis noted that Trincao’s dribbling skills, the 1-on-1 danger he possesses when isolated with the defenders and his creativity and ingenuity in insanely limited spaces do make him fairly similar to Messi.

Rodgers: Reds policy bearing fruit

first_imgContrasting methods have made Liverpool and Manchester City title contenders but Reds boss Brendan Rodgers resolutely believes his preferred way of doing things is making the club better for the long term. Press Association Sunday’s opponents spent hundreds of millions on transfers and salaries to bring in top-class talent which allowed City to win the Premier League in 2012 and become regular contenders. Liverpool, under Rodgers, have paid out far less and opted instead for a policy of development which has seen them unexpectedly leap from eighth in May 2012 to top of the table in April 2014. While he does not decry their rivals’ approach, which has been bankrolled by billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour, Rodgers is confident the Liverpool way will succeed just as well. “Both clubs work on different models, we are on different roads in terms of how we want to achieve success,” he said. “We are a club who have an identity and a philosophy of how we want to work and that is built through the club and we will hopefully cultivate and grow it over the years to come. “However this season finishes it will be a great victory for the model we have employed here of player development. “I won’t disrespect what (City) have done because they had a lot of new money come into the club in order to gain success. “They have invested that money wisely in a lot of top players and that has won them the league, the FA Cup and the league cup, so I am sure their supporters won’t be complaining. “Liverpool as a club is very much a development club – development for players and for people and it is a model we are happy with and will give us sustainable success over a long period. “We are looking to build and create something here which gives the young players at the club hope they can pull on the great shirt of Liverpool. “They have seen local boys come through here, a lot of young players getting an opportunity, and they have also seen a model of football which is exciting. “We are a club that is looking to the future and to the youth of our club as well as having a defined philosophy of football. “Hopefully that will provide the vision for years to come.” Sunday’s encounter at Anfield is being billed as a title decider but with four games to follow after that – six in City’s case – Rodgers has tried to play down the importance of one result. City have won just once in 16 Premier League visits to the ground and victory would put Liverpool seven points ahead of their opponents and leave Chelsea – who also have to travel to Merseyside later this month – as their main rivals. “It is a significant game, there is no doubt about that,” said the Reds boss. “It is two teams who have done extremely well this season in their own different ways but there is still a lot of work to do. “Our focus is on the three points because at the end of the day that is all that comes out of the game – even after this game there are still 12 points to play for. “But it is what we work for as coaches and managers. I am sleeping very well but I’ve not dreamt of lifting the title. “Our objective remains to qualify for the Champions League, only then can we think of other things. Once we’ve cleared that hurdle we can look at other objectives.” Fans have mobilised themselves again in preparation and will line Anfield Road in their numbers armed with flags and banners to welcome the team coach before kick-off and Rodgers issued what sounded like a rallying cry to those troops. “We will unleash the supporters this weekend yet again on the opponent,” he said. “Anfield is a special place to play football and a difficult place for teams to come and play. “I sense a real nostalgia about the place, the feel of the old Liverpool, and we will always respect that and it is important it drives us forward in the future.” Part of that history will be remembered on Sunday when the club begin a week of remembrance around the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster in which 96 fans died. “It gives us great commitment and motivation but we will get chance to commemorate Hillsborough next week (at the annual memorial service),” added Rodgers. “We carry it every day of our lives here: manager, players, supporters. “The victims and the families are with us every day and that is why we work hard to ensure they can have some comfort from seeing their club move forward. “This weekend will be huge for that.” last_img read more
