Burrito Bites

Happy Monday, and welcome to what is apparently the happiest day of the year!

Turns out there was lots of good stuff as I caught up on research this weekend, so here’s some of it. A great week unfurls out in front of us, kicked off by China’s announcement over the weekend to float the Yuan. This week sees a whole host of economic data (with a heavy tilt toward housing), while in Energyburritoville(tm), a keen eye is being kept on our dearly beloved commodities, as both crude and natty are set to fight out jedi-like battles to stay above key support. Burrito bites will follow on Friday, as well as a midweek post, and another guest post with the Houston Chronicle inbetwixt. Until then, care for a nibble?:  

–I say tomato, you say tomato; I say BP, you say British Petroleum.

–And following that point, how British is BP anyway?

–2010 is the hottest year on record thus far say NOAA.

Chinese rainbow fields.

Crouching oil, hidden coal.

The Carbon Footprint of The World Cup.

–Shale gas keeps getting sexier (their words, not mine).

–Go, pub power!

–Lowering the speed limit to 50 mph could reduce CO2 by 30%.

–Liars betray their actions through drawings.

–China shopping spree makes up a good portion of global M&A.

–The ECRI leading index – one we have visited before – could be signalling double dip territory.

Anyone seen E.T.?

there he is!

Top 50 performers in the S&P.

–Go on, my son….Algae biodiesel pricing in at $60 – $80

–Man escapes hell’s angels with puppy, escapes on a stolen bull-dozer.

This (i.e. last) week’s Burrito Deluxe Award of the week goes to any prospect or client who attended the event which launched our UK office – bravo and good on you!

The Burnt Burrito Award of the week is wrestled out of the hands of BP and thrust into the hands of the US economy. ‘The US economy has probably begun a lasting recovery, but the outlook has become more uncertain in recent weeks’ said Lawrence Summers, President Obama’s top economic adviser. Eeek.

Have a good week – may your days feel short and your lunch hours long!
