Oil Inventories Reach Highest Level Since November

Oil Inventories Reach Highest Level Since November

TheStreet (Mar. 26, 2014) The Energy Information Agency reports crude oil inventories build by 6.6 million barrels in the latest week. BRG Brokerage President Jeff Grossman tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux that this is a much larger-than-expected build, but he is surprised the WTI crude market remains little changed amid the inventory build and the Crimea crisis. Grossman warns that prices, which remain near $100 a barrel, likely will see a pullback to the mid $90 range, but not much further below that level. Video provided by TheStreet

Tomorrow's Trains

Tomorrow's Trains

Deutsche Welle (Dec. 9, 2012) Researchers from nine different German Aerospace Center Institutes are working together to come up with the train of the future. The vehicle that they're planning will be able to travel at 400 kilometers per hour. It will also be safer and more environmentally friendly than current locomotives. The so-called Next Generation Train will be a doubledecker, without any staircases inside. First-class passengers will get into the first floor, and second-class passengers will board at ground floor level. Sensors will be used to couple the sections of the trains. In the event of a crash, the nose of the train will crumple and absorb the energy of the collision. The damaged element can then be easily replaced. Tomorrow's trains will be able to do all this and a lot more.
