Coronavirus weighs on global oil demand: IEA

first_imgIt said it expected demand to recover somewhat next year to  97.1 million bpd, though this would still be down on its previous forecast.”We have revised down our 2021 demand estimate… as the aviation sector will likely take longer to recover,” the report said. “By December 2021, global oil consumption will still be two percent lower than at the end of 2019.”The aviation and road transport sectors, both essential components of oil consumption, were continuing to struggle, the IEA said.  The global coronavirus pandemic is weighing heavily on worldwide demand for oil as the aviation and transport sectors, in particular, struggle with the fallout from the lockdowns aimed at reining in the disease, the International Energy Agency said Thursday.”The COVID-19 pandemic has cast a long shadow over oil demand, which we now expect to fall by 8.1 million barrels per day year-on-year in 2020,” the IEA wrote in its latest monthly report.Overall, the IEA cut its forecast for global oil demand for the whole of 2020 to 91.9 million barrels per day, the first downgrade in a number of months.  Road transport was being impacted “as people avoid non-essential trips and working from home remains the norm in much of the West,” the report said. With countries largely keeping their borders closed and testing incoming passengers for COVID-19, “non-essential travel remains very limited, keeping air traffic well below normal levels.”That meant that the outlook for jet fuel demand “has worsened in recent weeks as the coronavirus has spread more widely,” the IEA said. While domestic travel had recovered in China and the United States, and the number of flights between European countries was increasing, “we estimate that global traffic was down around two-thirds from normal levels in July.”That follows a drop of 75 percent in June and 79 percent in May. “The northern hemisphere summer is normally the peak season for air travel, but this year’s slow take-up indicates demand may remain suppressed for a while,” the IEA said.”Business travel will remain severely curtailed globally until a vaccine is found, while leisure travel will mainly be limited to domestic trips and short-haul flights.”It was also possible that business travel “will struggle to recover to pre-COVID-19 levels due to the success of video conferencing and to broad efforts to cut operating costs,” the IEA said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Will regret when I watch a video of my dismissal: Navdeep Saini

first_imgAuckland: Navdeep Saini and Ravindra Jadeja’s 76-run stand for the eighth wicket took India tantalizingly close to an unlikely win. Saini was the aggressor in the partnership, scoring 45 off 49 balls and seemed to be turning the tables in India’s favor after they were 153/7 at one point chasing 275 at Eden Park in Auckland.However, he ended up losing his wicket while going for a big shot to debutant and man of the match Kyle Jamieson on 45. “I will regret it when I go back and see the video,” said Saini at the post-match press conference. “If I hadn’t got out, maybe the result could have been different. I will regret that I took it so close and maybe could have gotten closer.”We felt the wicket was flat and if we could stay till the end, the match could go close. So we were trying to contribute as much as possible and take the match to the end. Jadeja had told me that if you get a boundary ball hit it. Otherwise, take singles or doubles, try to keep patience and we can take the game to the end.” IANSAlso Read: East Bengal lose to Aizawl at Kalyani Municipality StadiumAlso Watch: Kokrajhar District BJP workers carried out cleanliness drivelast_img read more

Valai doing whatever it takes to contribute

first_imgBadger safety Jay Valai has been a symbol of toughness for UW, missing just 1 game despite dealing with knee, rib and calf injuries this season.[/media-credit]Toughness has a limit.For football players, that’s a harsh reality to accept.It’s even harder for players whose games are built on a tenacious, hardened mentality.Perhaps no Badger embodies that mindset better than senior safety Jay Valai, who plays with a massive chip on his shoulder and has gained a reputation as one of the league’s hardest hitters.But Valai encountered that very limitation against Purdue, where he struggled with an injury early in the first half and was replaced by backup Shelton Johnson.Valai partially tore his right calf muscle during the bye week and he couldn’t walk. The senior’s status had improved by game day, and while defensive backs coach Chris Ash allowed him to start the game, it became apparent that Valai wasn’t himself.The senior captain wanted to tough out the injury and continue playing, but Ash made the switch.“I wanted to be out there bad, especially with this being my last year,” Valai said. “But it was a smart move, because if I can’t go out there full speed, as much as I want to be out there, I don’t want to be a detriment to my team.”But at halftime, with UW down four, Valai had some work done in the training room, showed better mobility and convinced Ash to let him play.“He spent most of the first half getting stretched and getting loose. After halftime he moved around pretty good so I said OK, I’ll give you a shot,” Ash said. “He was out there at full speed so we stuck with him.”Toughness may have a limit, but you can bet Valai is going to test it.It’s part of who he is. It’s part of what’s made the 5-foot-9 inch safety so successful.Now the calf injury is just the latest one for Valai here in 2010. In fact, the trips to the training room began way back in fall camp.“It just started in camp when I tore my PCL and injuries have kept coming since,” Valai said, who later suffered a rib injury that forced him to miss the entire Minnesota game. “If I got to play through it I have to play through it. It’s getting better. The knee is getting better and I don’t really feel the ribs anymore, so it’s been better.”Playing through injuries is always a complicated subject for even the toughest players.Valai is widely respected as one of the senior captains, but his teammates know he needs to be healthy to be effective. That goes for everyone on the roster.“Jay believes in himself and he believes that he can play through injuries with that football mentality,” free safety Aaron Henry said. “I just tell him if he can’t go, don’t try to go out there and put us in a bad situation because you’re injured.”Problem is, Valai wants so desperately to be out there. He understands he needs to step aside if he’s injured for the good of the team, but that doesn’t make it any easier.Like the rest of the seniors, this is it for Valai. With each passing week his collegiate career gets one step closer to its inevitable end. And unfortunately for Valai, his final season hasn’t gone according to plan.Many believed this would be the year Valai established himself as an impact safety on a consistent basis. Entering 2010, Valai had been a two-time, second team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches and personal expectations were understandably high.This was going to be the year Valai went from just being a big-time hitter to becoming a top-notch all around safety. A defensive back who could make plays on the ball and be presence in the run game.At this point, Valai has just 28 tackles. He has yet to record an interception or force a fumble. The injuries have been frustrating and at times debilitating, but Valai’s role in this defense has changed.The highlight reel hits are not his priority. His job is to limit big plays and make sure he tackles.Still, Valai set the bar high this season and he worked all offseason to reach that level.“The year is not going how he wanted it to go, but obviously that could turn around at any point,” senior cornerback Niles Brinkley said.He has three games left, plus a bowl game, to fight through the injuries and end his Badger career on a high note.But this season isn’t about proving to the world he’s tough; Valai is now trying to prove he’s a winner.“I’m trying to be a tough guy too often. But I want to play and I have a lot of passion to play,” Valai said. “I just need to do my job and do what it takes to win… whatever it takes.”last_img read more
