Burrito Bites

Happy Friday once again! Sometimes it is better to go heavy on the filling, and light on the bread, so let’s dive straight into this week’s main course:

–One of the stranger headlines this week  – Sumo wrestler steals cash machine from Moscow shop.

–CERAWeek conference discusses how the energy sphere of influence is shifting to emerging markets, while even oil execs like the Conocophilips CEO shift focus to natural gas.

–TreeHugger blog is so good, yet leaves you feeling so, so bad. Waste, waste, waste.

–For all my OCD friends out there…..hand sanitizer doesn’t work.

Next month’s data releases for employment are indeed going to be March madness.

–Exxon showing the love for natural gas too.

Colchagua Valley, Chile

–Admittedly, this comes a long second to all the loss of life in Chile, but one of the best valleys in the world for red wine has been hit materially – Chile and the effect of earthquakes on their vineyards.

–a new energy source developed from the common pea.

–And while we’re talking healthy, why a Big Mac costs less than a salad.

Narrowing oil contango signals worries in the crude complex.

Olympic Hockey final Affects Water Supply, Canadian Economy.

–Rightfully last, but not least – 8 unconventional ways to be buried.

The Burrito Deluxe Award of the week goes to CERAWeek, for addressing and discussing the most prevalent issues faced in the global energy complex.

The Burnt Burrito Award of the week goes to Carlos Slim – the new richest man in the world, according to Forbes magazine. As Bill Gates and Warren Buffett have seen their fortunes fall on philanthropic endeavours, Carlos Slim’s unabated desire to become the world’s richest man has finally been achieved – well done.

And finally! This week’s competition! With all the focus on natural gas at the usual oil-heavy conference for CERA, it leads my to wonder: if natural gas is to be the savior of the energy world in the future, what will it’s superhero name be? The best suggestions provided in the comments wins a prize (which may or may not be burrito-related).

Have a top weekend!

    Wow. I’m not sure the tone could be lowered much more. And no, that isn’t a challenge, R E Parker Esq. I had to edit the worst bit out of your comment already. But thanks for playing!!!
