The mine will be reduced between 15% and 18% as a result of what we’re seeing,” Fonseca added.More: Coal mine Cerrejon to reduce output amid low prices, possible court ruling Global price decline prompts substantial reduction in coal production at Colombia’s Cerrejon minelast_img read more

Trade wars and dismal prices

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Doug Tenney, Leist MercantileWhile Ohio and Midwest producers may be in a good mood as to their yield prospects for corn and soybeans this fall, the mere mention of corn and soybean prices brings a protracted frown. Prior to the angst with all of the U.S./China trade war situation reaching a late May crescendo, December CBOT corn had reached $4.29 while November CBOT soybeans touched $10.60. Earlier this month, both made year-to-date lows as December corn touched $3.59 while November soybeans hit $8.26. Late July, December corn was $3.80 and November soybeans $8.90.The announcement late July of no additional trade tariffs between the U.S. and the EU tore a hole in the bottom of the gunny sack accumulation of disappointing trade news that has dominated U.S./China trade tariffs headlines since May. That announcement was followed with a promise by EU President Junckner to buy “lots” of U.S. soybeans. Many could easily view that as disappointing as a defined amount of U.S. soybeans was not detailed. While that is true, you have to be excited that trade is actually being discussed. Granted, while the EU will fall short of importing the huge amount of soybeans, which is imported into China, this announcement demonstrates that U.S. trade is once again flowing into the EU. Expect that more and more announcements are in the offing.Don’t be surprised to see numerous countries ink trade deals with the U.S. before the completion of our fall harvest. Some are somewhat optimistic talks between the U.S. and China could be happening shortly. Others feel that China has no choice but to be coming back to the U.S. to buy our soybeans. A timetable of that taking place is difficult at best to detail. Much has been made about the vast amount of U.S. soybeans not going to China at this time.Timely rains the next few weeks will go a long way in determining final U.S. soybean yields. Last month central Ohio was beginning to feel the effects of needing rain with corn seeing the first signs of stress. Then with rains July 20 to 22, that concern was alleviated for corn as numerous producers labeled the rains, a “million dollar rainfall.” The Aug. 10 USDA monthly Supply and Demand Report will detail actual expected corn and soybean yields across Ohio and the Midwest. Late last month, some reports indicated the U.S. corn yield could be near 178 bushels or higher while the U.S. soybean yield may climb north of 50 bushels per acre. Last month the U.S. corn yield was 174 bushels per acre. Last year the U.S. corn yield reached 176.6 bushels per acre, a record setting yield two years in a row. Some are suggesting the U.S. corn yield could climb above 178 bushels this year. With that same report USDA had the U.S. soybean yield at 48.5 bushels per acre while last year the U.S. soybean yield was 49.1 bushels. Some are already anticipating that yield could climb above 50 bushels per acres.Don’t be surprised that corn and soybean harvest will commence earlier than that of last year.Corn demand could easily be ratcheting higher in coming months. Last month USDA raised U.S. corn exports 125 million bushels to 2.225 billion bushels. The export could reach last year’s level of 2.4 billion bushels. With reduced corn production in South America in recent months export demand should be shifting to the U.S.Rains the last weekend of July were less than expected. At that time the two-week U.S. Midwest weather forecast was warmer and drier than normal. Both U.S. and world demand are tight.Many feel corn futures have found a bottom during July. U.S. farmers and traders will be watching further details of the U.S. $12 billion dollar aid package. Dry weather in the EU and North China look to provide support for corn prices. The U.S. farm aid could slow farmer sales. As of mid-July, producers still have 2017 corn yet to move to grain facilities.last_img read more

6 Great Tools for LSAT, SAT and GMAT Test Prep

first_imgRelated Posts 2. Grockit: Grockit prepares students for the SAT, ACT, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT and GRE. This service emphasizes the group learning experience and students invite friends from Yahoo, Gmail and Plaxo to join in the site’s games. This is particularly useful for the SATs when large groups of peers are likely to be studying together. The service offers a point system for tests and games, and displays student scoring in terms of community testing percentiles. Additional features include real time chat and the ability to find online tutors. Tutorial rates range from zero to $20 per hour. Grockit is free for the first 35 questions or $40 per year for unlimited access to questions, diagnostic tests and scheduled group games. 3. Brightstorm: Brightstorm focuses on preparing teens for the SAT, ACT and AP-level high school courses. This tool is particularly useful for visual learners because programs offer hours of video courses, strategies and practice exams. What’s interesting about this preparation tool is that while it provides knowledge-based tests and quizzes, it also teaches students strategies to make educated guesses. For example, in one video the instructor says, “On the ACT English, the shortest answer is correct a third of the time.” Brightstorm packages are priced at $99 per test and a 1-800 line is available for questions. 4. EPrep: EPrep also prepares students for the SAT, ACT, PSAT and high school subjects using video instructions. Students complete practice tests in a timed environment, receive grades and review test answers via video tutorials. EPrep offers a free 7 day trial period and packages generally range in price between $69-$249. This service takes a more conventional classroom-style approach to teaching so it’s better for those that excel in this type of environment. For those that prefer a more interactive experience, Watermelon Express and Grockit might be a better fit. 5. Prep Me: Prep Me is a learning environment for students interested in taking the PSAT, ACT and SAT. This service offers an initial diagnostic test and then builds a personalized study schedule for students. Similar to other programs, students can chat with tutors, take practice quizzes and analyze their strengths and weaknesses.

That being said, the company boasts an average 305 point increase on the SAT for grade 11 students. The company is currently offering premium services for free to students in the state of Maine.6. Knewton: Knewton is another program that adapts a study plan for students. The company specializes in GMAT, GRE, SAT and LSAT testing and matches videos and lessons to a students “learning arc”. Students can interact via a live on-demand video classroom and the company offers results or a money back guarantee. Courses are priced at $890 for 15 teaching sessions and more than 45 classroom hours. While this is a particularly high price tag for testing services, if a couple hundred dollars is the cost of qualifying for a scholarship, perhaps the service is worth it. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Thousands of intelligent students seize up during standardized test season. They’re the ones in the back of the gymnasium, frantically writing to the last minute and choking under the pressure of an egg timer. I am that student. Perhaps test anxiety doesn’t come from the actual questions sitting in front of us, but rather the fact that these standardized test scores can be life altering. These scores affect our admittance to the right schools, our ability to gain scholarships and our ability to qualify for certain types of aid. The weight of these tests had many of us prematurely self-destructing, and honestly, it doesn’t get any easier as we get older. Want to do an MBA or law degree? Your qualifying test scores could mean the difference between a great life transition and a mediocre one. Below is a list of test prep resources. If you’re spending your summer prepping, these might just help you gain the confidence you need to come out on top. 1.

I also hope that the next 1,000 episodes continue to represent what good, strong, healthy debates look like. We don’t all share the same perspectives, but we do love and respect one another deeply. I look forward to pushing the conversations forward!”“I gained five close friends from THE SOCIAL. Cynthia, Jess, Marci, Melissa, Jess, and Traci are among the most important people in my life.

I hope the next 1,000 episodes bring honest discussions about what Canadians are facing in their everyday lives and we will continue to share our stories – in my case, overshare!”“I’m sure every age believes they are living in especially politically charged times but holy smokes, most days it feels as though our time takes the cake,” said THE SOCIAL’s Digital Correspondent Jess Allen. “Maybe it’s social media that has amplified this sense that everyone must have an opinion, whether it’s informed or not; of opinions existing in echo chambers; and of sides being rigidly divided. So continuing to have up-to-speed spirited, engaged, and most importantly, respectful debate and discourse is something I look forward to. Also, more food segments. Because that’s what you call a free lunch.”Since its debut, THE SOCIAL remains the daily destination for fresh perspectives and unfiltered discussions on topics that resonate with Canadians.
