Everyone Is Fleeing Oil's Biggest Fund

The biggest U.S. exchange-traded fund that tracks oil is heading for the largest two-month outflow in six years, raising concern that crude’s 30 percent rally may stall.

Holders of the United States Oil Fund, known as USO, have withdrawn almost $1 billion so far in April and May, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Crude dropped about $12 a barrel after a $1.4 billion exodus from the fund in the two months ended June 2009.

Oil has rebounded from a six-year low in mid-March on speculation that the falling number of drilling rigs will reduce output. U.S. crude stockpiles near the highest level in 85 years and OPEC’s refusal to cut production will continue to weigh on prices, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Deutsche Bank AG and Citigroup Inc.

“The oil rebound has run out of gas and now you are seeing nervous investors with itchy trigger fingers bailing out of USO,” Eric Balchunas, a Bloomberg Intelligence analyst, said May 27. “They don’t want to get burned by another drop in oil.”




West Texas Intermediate crude for July delivery added 69 cents to $58.37 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange at 11:41 a.m. London time, up from a closing price of $43.46 on March 17. Futures rallied 25 percent in April, the biggest monthly gain since May 2009, and have fallen 2.1 percent so far in May.


The Arcturians: AN UNEXPECTED CONVERSATION

An Unexpected Conversation with the Arcturians
5-28-15


WITH THE ARCTURIANS

Dearest Suzille,
Your resonance has expanded into a higher frequency, but your conscious awareness has not yet flowed into that portal of your SELF because your consciousness has not yet fully occupied that resonance.

You higher consciousness flowing into your earth vessel and the consciousness that now resonates to your earth vessel do not YET intermingle. Therefore, what is occurring is that you feel a bit of disconnection from Source.

This disconnection is just your 3D brain trying to figure out what is occurring. The solution for this issue is that you pull in the protection that you have via your connection to us, your Arcturian SELF.

You have always experienced us as above you. We ask now that you experience us as within you. You could begin with your Pleiadian expressions of SELF, but your primary alignment within this NOW is with us, the Arcturians.

It is difficult to explain in human language what we are saying, so we will speak symbolically .Do you see the picture of your Pleiadian and Antarian Selves on your right and left?

YES, I DO

Now see that we are directly above your head, above your pineal gland. Do you see how the Pleiadians and Antarians are protecting you?

YES, I DO

Now see how we are directly above your Crown Chakra, protecting and communing with you.

YES I SEE AND FEEL IT

Can you now feel our protection and information entering through your crown and flowing through you and into the core of Gaia?

YES I DO

Around us you also see the Angels and Ascended Masters, Correct?

YES, CORRECT

Good, you just figured out in your own mind—by reading the light language of your life—to look at that which you desire to perceive and ignore that which upsets, distracts, or s you from your purpose.

NOW, this is very important, focus on that which expands your consciousness and release/look through that which lowers your consciousness.

We say, “look through” for we want you to be aware of any potential danger about where you are walking or a darker energy field. However, you must learn to NOT be distracted by the dark.

You have been trained by your life to recognize any danger of darkness, but now you need to acknowledge it exists without any interaction besides a quick thought of unconditional love and violet fire.

YES I HAVE LEARNED THAT—THE HARD WAY

That is true. But that “hard way” also taught you that miracles happen every day.

Cleveland Cops Promise to Stop Pistol-Whipping People After DOJ Exposed their Dangerous Habit

Cleveland Cops Promise to Stop Pistol-Whipping People After DOJ Exposed their Dangerous Habit

By John Vibes on May 27, 2015


Cleveland, Ohio – The Cleveland Police Department has recently been under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department after a number of high-profile police murders have taken place in the city in a short period of time.

One disturbing police practice in Cleveland that the investigation exposed was the fact that officers with the department regularly use their guns to hit people on the head. The 21-month investigation revealed that pistol-whipping is a regular practice for Cleveland police. This practice often results in accidently discharging their guns while hitting people over their heads, putting innocent lives in danger.

One of the outcomes of the investigation was the Cleveland Police Department promising to stop the practice, and will be legally bound to do so according to the Justice Department report.

“[Cleveland Division of Police’s] policy will expressly provide that using a firearm as an impact weapon is never an authorized tactic. Officers will be trained that use of a firearm as an impact weapon could result in death to suspects, bystanders and themselves,“ the report said.

The report also said, “It is also unclear why CDP appears to be categorizing hitting someone with a gun as a conventional response when force is needed. This is uniformly understood to be a dangerous practice that should never be permitted except in very unusual and exigent circumstances in which the use of deadly force is authorized; yet, it was a practice we saw CDP officers engaging in too frequently.”


The report also says police will not be allowed to display their weapons unless they truly believe that lethal force is necessary to use. However, many police officers feel that running away from an officer for a small non-violent offense is reason enough to use lethal force, so these guidelines leave much room for improvement.

However, de-escalation techniques are highlighted in the report, and officers will now allegedly be trained to prevent encounters from ending in violence.

“Many of the things are the long-standing policies in these good departments. Like hitting people with their guns, like a baton. The good departments banned that decades ago,” said Sam Walker, a retired criminology professor at the University of Nebraska.

Solar Sisters: How This "Avon Lady" Model Of Solar Distribution Has Taken Off

Solar Sisters: How This "Avon Lady" Model Of Solar Distribution Has Taken Off

Women are earning side income from the project and spreading solar products in areas where power is lacking, but Solar Sister as an organization still relies mostly on philanthropic support.

Solar Sister is a social business that uses an "Avon Lady"-type model to distribute solar equipment in Africa. It's been operating for more than five years and now works with about 1,500 women entrepreneurs in three countries. The women buy solar lamps, solar phone chargers, and solar panels at cost, then mark up the items at retail, pocketing the difference. Solar Sister provides training and support, helping the saleswomen reach their goals.

As part of our new series checking in on projects we've written about in the past, we spoke with CEO Katherine Lucey. She talked about the challenges the company has faced in that time and how Solar Sister hopes to continue to grow.

Lucey founded the business on the premise that women are the family members most likely to use solar equipment. In Uganda, Tanzania, and Nigeria, they're the ones who currently buy kerosene for lighting and see that their kids have enough light at night to do homework. After that, it also seemed logical that the best people to sell to women would be other women.

"We thought the way to reach women was for one woman to tell another woman 'I use this at home,'" Lucey says. "She can talk to her cousin, her friend, her sister with real authentic understanding of the benefits. There is a trust there, and a network."
