About 40 percent of Indians, or million people, lack electricity. India now operates 20 mostly small reactors at six sites with a capacity of 4, MW, or 3 percent of its total power capacity.
It hopes to lift its nuclear capacity to 7, MW by next year, more than 20, MW by and 63, MW by by adding nearly 30 reactors. Vandalism and Cricket A recent visit to the hectare site saw few signs of activity other than a group of policemen playing cricket. Defaced signs and milemarkers on the road to Jaitapur, about km south of Mumbai, are evidence of the opposition to the plant. About of the 2, families eligible for compensation for their land have accepted it, according to Vivek Bhide, a doctor and mango farmer from the district.
Final contracts have yet to be signed. Opposition to the Jaitapur plant is based in part on worry about seismic activity in the region and concern that India would not be prepared to manage a crisis. Alternatives including wind and solar are relatively expensive and lack the scale and storage capacity to provide base load supply.
China, which is pressing ahead with its own ambitious nuclear programme, is less constrained. Residents in Jaitapur are encouraged by the long history of civil disobedience in India and say they are bolstered in their argument by the crisis in Japan. Last week, activist Anna Hazare. EPR reactors are in operation but four are under construction - one in France, two in China, and one in Finland, which is three years behind plan and may force Areva to write down as much as euro 2.
Little Choice Whether the Jaitapur plant is built or not, India has little choice but to add a lot more nuclear power. Gas output from the KG basin, for which India has high hopes, has lagged expectations, while compe.
Infarmers in Singur in the state of West Bengal blocked Tata Motors from building a factory there to make its ultra-low-cost Nano car. Praveen Gavankar, a farmer and leader of opposition to the nuclear plant, said villagers plan to start farming on the site and if the government tries to block them they are prepared to go to Delhi and stage their own hunger strike.
Box Safat, Kuwait. E MAIL :info kuwaittimes. Not every nationalist in Europe is far-right. Look at Scotland, a sub-state with a population the size of Finland minority governed for the past four years by long-established centre-left nationalists, tipped by polls to strengthen their grip with a second, five-year term next month. But the drift elsewhere does seem clear. Heinz-Christian Strache - the new darling of the Austrian far-right - has recorded rap songs about his rejection of the Brussels machine or Muslim symbols in European cities.
Further far-right figures also sit, with increasing ease, in the parliaments of Bulgaria, Latvia, Slovakia and Sweden, while Flemish nationalists - as ever spurred on by rivals in the outside-right lane - are itching for an excuse to break off from Belgium.
These concerns have fused perfectly with bailout fatigue after Greece, Ireland and Portugal each cried for help from partners - and experts warn that even if anti-Portugal bailout rhetoric is used to extract concessions elsewhere in coalition talks, the future of EU financial solidarity is far less sure.

But unless the longtime allies do the unexpected by running against each other, political analysts and diplomats say the decision on who will be the next president lies with Putin, president from Putin, 58, is expected to decide whether to run for president himself, endorse his protege Medvedev for a new six-year term or, less likely, tap a third candidate.
Last month, he visited the tomb of reformist Tsar Alexander II and told government ministers to leave the boards of state companies. In a shift from some previous statements, he did not say the decision would be made together with Putin. Political observers differ over what outward signs of a rift between Putin and Medvedev mean.
Some see serious policy differences, others a smokescreen to create a veneer of competition and please as many groups as possible in both Russia and the West, where Putin is viewed warily because of friction during his presidency. Most agree that Medvedev would not dare defy Putin and run on his own. Brought to the pinnacle of power in after years as a loyal subordinate to the longtime Soviet KGB officer, who is nearly a generation his senior, Medvedev lacks a broad power base and lags behind Putin in popularity ratings.
Putin has maintained a poker face in public, as he did for months before anointing Medvedev as his favoured successor less than three months before the election, when he was constitutionally barred from seeking a third straight term. But his recent assertiveness could be born of necessity rather than confidence.
Few doubt he would win if he were to seek a new term. But a return to the presidency would pose the challenge of equaling or improving on the economic achievements of his previous stint. His next chance to provide hints on his plans is an annual report to parliament tomorrow. But as Medvedev has hinted, it could be seen as a recipe for stagnation rather than progress towards stronger political institutions, a smaller role for the state in the economy and less reliance on energy exports to drive the economy.
A list of the things that could go wrong shows that the operation could take longer - or be derailed altogether if unknown factors are considered, like another powerful quake. Even the government was quick yesterday to lower expectations.
TEPCO has been struggling to stabilise its Fukushima nuclear power plant km miles north of Tokyo, that was seriously damaged by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami and has been leaking radiation ever since. The difficulties, including the dumping of contaminated water into the ocean, have sparked an outcry in South Korea and expressions of concern from China.
Tokyo offered apologies for a failure to give sufficient warning and explanation. In announcing its plan on Sunday, TEPCO listed eight risk factors that could get in the way, including hydrogen explosions and power outages. Aftershocks still jolt the area. The rainy season arrives in late June and typhoons from August pose further threats. But each step and contingency plan listed by TEPCO not only faces formidable obstacles but also entails new risks.
Reactors No. No one can get near The Return (Time To Say Goodbye) (Radio Mix) - Various - Taneční Liga 30 (Cassette) to the reactors to find where that water is coming from. Tepco has spent over a month on its Plan A, inject. But coolant levels are not rising as much as would be expected inside the reactors, while the contaminated water levels refuse to go down, suggesting leaks. Some specialists also worry about possible damage to the fuel rods in the No.
And we are talking about people working in highly contaminated areas. Its nuclear pressure vessel and containment structure are likely to have been damaged. The big pre-requisite for water entombment is that the containment vessels are sound and that workers find and stop all leaks. In the meantime, radiation seeps out. And the longer the current uncertainties persist, the more contaminated water Tepco creates through its stopgap cooling measures.
And while TEPCO has worked to stop the main leaks into the ocean, it has not yet turned its attention to leaks into the water table, some experts said. Once radiation levels are low enough for workers to gain more access to the reactor buildings, TEPCO plans to cover the reactors and spread the grounds with inhibitors to absorb radioactive particles.
The absence of Pato and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is suspended for two more league games, means Robinho and Antonio Cassano are the only forwards available to the club. Louis 8 8. The year-old defender lost control of his car on the Egnatia motorway while driving from Xanthi to Salonika in the Kavala region of Northern Greece. Adefemi signed for Xanthi last summer and made 24 appearances for the club, scoring twice.
He has also played three times for Nigeria. The World Cup defender was furious at the treatment his squad received before the second round tie and the poor state of the pitch at a Monrovia stadium named after former Liberia president Samuel Doe. Giants reliever Dan Runzler had only allowed one base runner over 2 innings before walking Justin Upton and Chris Young with one out in the 12th. Josh Collmenter pitched two per fect innings for the win, as the Diamondbacks ended a four-game losing streak.
Heath Bell got his 38th consecutive save after loading the bases with one out in the ninth. He got the last two batters on a strikeout and groundout. Ernesto Friero pitched 1 innings for the victory. Pirates 7, Reds 6 In Cincinnati, Andrew McCutchen opened the game with a homer, then singled home the game-winning run in the eighth inning, to lift Pittsburgh over the Reds.
Yet the jaunty, almost cocky Knight plays the part of a young man on the cusp of conquering the world rather than someone struggling to rise up from his lowly ranking of and gain a berth on the team for the London Olympics. Real life, though, has always been hard for Knight, who discovered that sport could be a way out of the tough London estate he was raised in rather than the route of crime many of his friends took. He said his neighbours are probably his biggest help. He has led Sri Lanka once before, on a tour of Zimbabwe in June last year, when his team won a one-day tri-series which also featured India.
Chairman of selectors Duleep Mendis said the tour squad would be selected after Dilshan returns from the Indian Premier League where he is representing Royal Challengers Bangalore. The squad are due to leave for England on M ay 10 for a series of three tests, five onedayers and one Twenty20 international.
The first Test in Cardiff starts on May The Rockies sent 10 batters to the plate in the four-run eighth to give them the victory. Marcos Mateo picked up the loss for Chicago. In the opener, Ivan Rodriguez also hit a three-run homer and Jason Marquis allowed two runs and nine hits in seven-plus innings. Yovani Gallardo yielded seven runs on 10 hits to pick up the loss.
In the second game, Livan Hernandez allowed one run and six hits and struck out three in seven innings. Ryan Madson tossed a scoreless eighth after taking over for Cole Hamels, and Jose Contreras survived a rocky ninth inning for his third save. Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth for his second save. Brian Roberts went 3 for 4 for the Orioles, who have lost eight of Ogando had allowed just four hits over 13 shutout innings in his previous two starts this season.
Jesse Litschmaking his third start since shoulder surgery last August, gave up six runs on eight hits. The Red Sox entered the game with a record, the worst in the major leagues. Twins 4, Rays 2 At St. Petersburg, Florida, Brian Duensing allowed two runs over seven innings and Matt. Angels 4, White Sox 2 In Chicago, Dan Haren pitched into the seventh inning for his fourth win of the season and Maicer Izturis had three hits to help Los Angeles complete a three-game sweep of Chicago.
Haren joined teammate Jered Weaver as the only four-game winners in the league thus far. The right-hander allowed two runs on seven hits over 6 innings, striking out six and not allowing a walk. Pineda limited the Royals to one run and three hits over six innings. He was charged with three runs on six hits, while striking out one in 6 innings. Athletics 5, Tigers 1 In Oakland, California, Josh Willingham broke out of a slump with a two-run single and Mark Ellis doubled twice to help Oakland win its second straight at home.
Trevor Cahill pitched eight solid innings, striking out a season-high nine batters. The monumental Shanghai circuit has now hosted eight grands prix but, in a thriving. Next year will see the return of the United States with a new race in Austin, Texas, while Russia makes its debut with the Sochi circuit in Other countries that have expressed an interest include South Africa and Mexico.
Whitmarsh said important lessons had to be learned before the sport made its return to the United States, a market it has repeatedly tried and failed. Coming out of the fourth turn, Johnson dipped next to the yellow line and surged past Hendrick Motorspor ts teammates Jeff. In some respects, he. Johnson, a five -time series champion, was pushed across the line by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Pole -sitter Jeff Gordon, squeezed between Bowyer and Johnson to take third.
Earnhardt, the four th Hendrick driver, essentially gave up a chance to claim his first win. It also made up for a day of lackluster racing with this new tandem style, which the drivers began using at the season-opening Daytona and really perfected at this 4.
R ather than run together in huge drafting packs, which used to be the norm at restrictor-plate tracks, the drivers figured out they can run even faster in pairs. So, everyone found partners before the race — usually teammates — and swapped radio frequencies so they could make changes on the track on ce th e green flag dropped. As a result, the cars all run the same speed, and the field is typically bunched tightly together.
One wrong move by a driver can cause a massive accident. Twentysix drivers traded the lead 88 times on Sunday, matching a record set last year at Talladega. Many of the changes were choreographed by pairs who were trying to stay out of trouble to give themselves a chance at the end.
The Canucks, who had the best record in the NHL during the regular season, lead the Western Conference first-round series and can finish it off Tuesday night in Chicago. Roberto Luongo made 30 saves and Christian Ehrhoff and Daniel Sedin also scored for the Canucks, who were eliminated by the Blackhawks in the first round the previous two seasons. Samuelsson scored on a second rebound at of the third after a first attempt by Henrik Sudin went off goalie Corey Crawford. Duncan Keith and Patrick Sharp had power-play goals for the Blackhawks.
Chicago had seven power-play opportunities overall, including a 5-on-3 in the first period when they ledbut were repeatedly turned away by Luongo. After the Rangers managed only one goal in two losses at Washington, they got three Sunday against young Capitals goalie Michal Neuvirth. New York got 35 shots through on Neuvirth after a combined 47 in the opening two games. Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist, and Mike.
The English driver sustained multiple leg fractures and a compression fracture in his back in the Indy crash, knocking him out for the remainder of the season. He went through a grueling rehabilitation and signed with Andretti Autosport before this season, finishing 23rd and 22nd his first two races. It was a long offseason, but there was a lot to keep my mind on and when I got a chance to get back into the car, I was ready. After a series of late crashes, he took the lead with 14 laps left by whipping past Briscoe.
Conway was never challenged after that, stretching his lead to 6 seconds by the final lap. Briscoe of Australia finished second and defending series champion Dario Franchitti of Scotland was third.
Pole-sitter Will Power looked as if he was going to complete a second wire -to-wire win at the start. Power has flexed his road power in the early part of the season, finishing second at St. Petersburg, going green-to - checkers at Alabama, then making it 3-for-3 on poles by edging defending Long Beach champion Ryan Hunter-Reay late in qualifying. The Aussie driver led the first 27 laps and was close to the top all day, but had his chances at consecutive victories wiped out by teammate Helio Castroneves, who barreled into the side of his car in Turn 1 on the last restart.
Power finished 10th and Castroneves was 12th. We drove back to finish 10th and made the most of it. For the most part, they did; the race stayed clean until the cars started piling up late. Justin Wilson spun out twice, the second one causing a fullcourse caution with 23 laps left, t he n Ca s t rone ve s a nd Powe r crashed on the restart.
Takuma Sato and Charlie Kimball made contact on Turn 8 after that. With the cars bunched up on that final full caution, Conway found a good line and blew past Franchitti and Briscoe.
The NHL suspended Ryan for. Ryan also will miss Game 4 on Wednesday in Nashville. Teemu Selanne scored twice and Matt Beleskey added a goal for Anaheim. The previous best of was by Haile Gebrselassie in Berlin But Mutai was almost three minutes better than the course record set just last year by Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot.
Davila led as late as the final stretch on Boylston Street and ran the fastest time ever for a US woman, surpassing the The Return (Time To Say Goodbye) (Radio Mix) - Various - Taneční Liga 30 (Cassette) Joan Benoit in Mutai and Moses Mosop ran side -by-side for the final miles before Mutai pulled ahead for good on Boylston Street and winning by four seconds.
The 19th Kenyan winner in the past It was the fifth straight win for Tsuchida and the second overall for Soejima. The world number one claimed titles uninterruptedly from before being forced out a year ago to take treatment on his knee. The absence of the nearly-local tennis hero from the nearby island of Mallorca hit the event hard.
But then-national number two Fernando Verdasco rose to the occasion to win the title and keep the honours in Iberian hands for an eighth consecutive year.
Nadal has dominated on the clay of the Catalan capital, where he has turned the event into one of his personal spring playgrounds in the run-up to the French Open next month.
The Scot who learned his tennis in Barcelona, has played the event three times, the last time in The top eight seeds all have byes into the second round. Russia will host the Czechs on Nov. The Russians were heavily favored to win in the Russian capital as Italy was without top players Francesca Schiavone and Flavia Pennetta. The Czechs beat Belgium in the deciding doubles for a victory in Charleroi, Belgium.
The Americans, the record time champion but playing without Venus and Serena Williams, were relegated after going down to Germany in Stuttgart. France was also relegated after falling to hosts Spain in Lleida. Russia and Italy have dominated the Fed Cup sincewinning all seven titles between them. Italy was missing Schiavone, the French Open champion withdrawing to concentrate on the clay-court season. Pennetta is sidelined with a shoulder injury. The Americans were Fed Cup runners-up in the last two years, losing both times to Italy, but could not overcome the higherranked Germans.
By appearing in Germany, Williams becomes eligible for the London Games. Players have to make themselves available for the Fed Cup to play in the Olympics. Williams has been sidelined since the Australian Open. In addition, the US team lost Bethanie Mattek-Sands, who would have been its top-ranked payer, to a hip injury. France started the day at but lost both reverse singles before also dropping the meaningless doubles match.
Authorities in Bahrain have cracked down heavily on dissent since anti-government protests began Feb. It will be up to the golf federation in Bahrain and the king as our hosts. We started in Bahrain and we hope we can continue.
He also said the Nigerian Open in the s was disrupted by an uprising in the African country that forced players to remain housebound. We reckoned we were safe there. Some players were worried but we honor our agreements. The tour has also held preliminary talks with Saudi Arabia on hosting a Senior Tour event and with Oman over hosting a sixth European Tour event in the coming years.
Oman would be the most developed in that sense. The longer you play the game your body just gets used to it. Your rhythm comes naturally compared. Swann was ready for the challenge in the midst of unsubtle hints in the Australian media that he might be targeted. You need footholes to make the ball go. In Melbourne it was almost going the other way. A lot of people said he got to you and rattled you.
I regard that. I thought aside from the Perth game second test I was able to do that so I was very happy. The joy of the trio contrasted with the dejection of compatriot Emmanuel Eboue, who conceded the penalty deep in stoppage time that allowed Liverpool snatch a draw at faltering title contenders Arsenal. Arsenal had just taken the lead through a late penalty from Robin van Persie when Eboue rashly barged over Lucas Leiva and Dirk Kuyt converted the spot-kick to leave Arsenal six points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United.
It was his 12th goal of the season and the third in his last four matches. With eight minutes remaining, Taiwo calmly slotted his spot-kick into the bottom-right corner to earn OM a vital. It took his tally for the season to 13 league goals. Isolated up front, Cisse had few chances as his side were swept aside by rampant Dortmund.
Cisse is second with 20 goals in 28 games. The year-old is bidding for a place in the starting line-up when Schalke host Premier League giants Manchester United on April 26 at the Veltins Arena. Newcastle will play Manchester United in a Premier League match today.
Redknapp pushed Bale forward onto the left wing, allowing him to attack without having to think so much about the defensive aspect of his game.
The manager has been fantastic, giving me my chance, and it is something I want to improve on. He scored a hat trick in a loss at Inter Milan before he tore the European champions apart when the London club won at home in the group stage.
It is good to keep this history going. He looked tired and out of sorts as Inter Milan lost 20 at Parma to further undermine their hopes of retaining the league title. Several chances came his way, but he was unable to convert any of them and The Return (Time To Say Goodbye) (Radio Mix) - Various - Taneční Liga 30 (Cassette) form is troubling for the club who are now eight points behind AC Milan and out of the Champions League.
The sides were level at that point, but with Afriyie Palermo went on to win A series of injuries stymied his progress and he took 25 Premier League matches over more than two years to feature in a winning league side. He only became a regular after being picked at left back for an FA Cup match in January LONDON: With Manchester United and Arsenal each seeking to overcome huge disappointment, the Premier League title race continues midweek with three matches that could yet help determine the destination of the title.
Newcastle could be the perfect opponent for United, which will be without the suspended Paul Scholes after his red card against City at Wembley.
United is unbeaten in 17 matches against Newcastle since September and the Magpies will be without suspended captain Kevin Nolan, who has scored 12 goals this season. Defender Jonny Evans is also able to play following a ban. But in an interview published yesterday in daily newspaper El Mundo, Alves said he and the rest of the squad want him to stay on. He is very intelligent, he always knows what he is doing. To not follow Guardiola would be foolish. Barcelona held Real Madrid to a draw on Saturday, leaving them eight points ahead and well placed to clinch their second straight league title.
But the Sky Blues remain without injured defender Stephan Keller and forward David Williams as they embark on a series of three. Coach Lavicka said it was vital for Sydney to pick up points against Shanghai, who are also languishing after two draws and a defeat from three games. Tianjin will miss skipper and goalscorer Marko Zoric, who is suspended over a dangerous tackle, for the trip to Melbourne, where they are looking to extend their group lead.
Teams are split into eight groups of four with knockout stages to be played later in the year. The success-starved northern club, who have not lifted any silverware since their mids heyday, have seen a four-point lead whittled down to an advantage of just a single point in recent weeks. The most recent setback was a draw at home to Bordeaux on Saturday, which enabled second-placed defending champions Marseille to close the gap by winning at Montpellier.
The draw with Bordeaux followed on from a defeat at relegation candidates Monaco and in Nice they face a team who have banished their own relegation fears with an eight-game unbeaten run. Those results left Juventus eight points adrift of Lazio who are in fourth place, the Champions League qualifying round berth, with 60 points. Cesena moved out of the relegation places with a win over bottom club Bari thanks to a second-half goal from year-old Albania striker Erjon Bogdani.
Napoli, winners of their last four league games, took early control with Cavani twice going close but it fell apart for them in a six. After a two-minute delay, Uruguay forward Cavani saw his kick saved by Samir Handanovic. Matias Schelotto levelled straight after the break but Mauri put Lazio back ahead in the 56th before late goals from Sergio Floccari and Argentine Mauro Zarate completed an impressive win. Bari stayed rooted to the bottom of the table with 21 points and look doomed while Brescia, in 19th place, went down at midtable Genoa to stay on 30 points.
Lecce boosted their survival hopes when Fabiano and Daniele Corvia scored in the last three minutes to snatch a draw at home to Cagliari, who had led with two goals from Robert Acquafresca and one from Daniele Conti.
Algerian Djamel Mesbah scored the other goal early in the second half for Lecce who are 16th with 35 points. None of the teams in the top five of the Clausura standings before the weekend earned wins as second-placed Velez Sarsfield drew with Colon in Santa Fe, midfielder Victor Zapata equalising in the fourth minute of added time.

A Stracqualursi penalty after young defender Enzo Ruiz pulled midfielder Roman Martinez down put Tigre ahead again with 20 minutes to go. But a fine shot from outside the box into the top corner 12 minutes from time by Argentina full back Clemente Rodriguez salvaged a point, only their fifth in five home matches, for Boca. Their other direct rivals for a Europa League berth, holders Atletico Madrid 46 and Espanyol 45drew in Barcelona and are seventh and eighth respectively with six games left.
Bilbao had defender Xabi Castillo sent off for a second yellow card in the 57th minute in Pamplona, shortly after striker Kike Sola had fired the home side in front. Osasuna were unable to make their. Af ter Osasuna defender Sergio Fernandez was sent off for a second yellow in the 88th minute, Iker Muniain pounced on a defensive howler by goalkeeper Ricardo Lopez to curl the ball into the empty net from wide on the left.
Pablo Osvaldo equalised with a deflected shot shortly before halftime before Sergio Aguero intercepted an attempted backpass in the 49th minute and lifted the ball superbly over onrush. Osvaldo levelled again nine minutes later but neither side found the firepower or creativity to engineer a winner. With only 12 points separating 11th from 20th in a congested bottom half of the table, Deportivo Coruna secured a crucial win at home to R acing Santander, while Real Sociedad beat visiting Sporting Gijon in San Sebastian.
Almeria remain rooted to the bottom on 26 points after they were beaten at home by third-placed Valencia on Saturday. Hercules have 30 points in 19th and Real Zaragoza, who play at fourth-placed Villarreal on Monday, are 18th on America have 22 with Toluca and Atlas on 20, with two matches to go in the qualifying, round-robin phase. Former Mexico striker Francisco Palencia scored twice in the opening Had the former Barcelona ace, who has yet to impress since returning home from AC Milan in January, converted the penalty in the fourth minute of added time Flamengo would have avoided the Brazilian champions.
Porto substitute Walter made it in the 85th. Now the first ever basketball court has been built in his birthplace of Turalei to offer others opportunities he never had-one small part of efforts for peace and reconciliation as south Sudan nears full independence in July. Many in the crowd showed the towering physique of Bol, the tallest player in National.

The dusty thatched-hut village of Turalei, close to the still-disputed northsouth border, was burnt to the ground, its people massacred or taken into slavery. Carl Landry scored 17 points and Jarrett Jack had 15 for the Hornets, who are seeded seventh in the Western Conference.
The Lakers swept the four-game regular-season series with New Orleans. Randolph scored nine points in the fourth quarter and punished San Antonio repeatedly under the basket. Tony Parker led the Spurs with 20 points, but they sorely missed All-Star player Manu Ginobili of Argentina, who continued to rest his sprained right elbow.
They were then. Allen, who led the Celtics with 24 points, then sank the decisive basket from beyond the left arc. The Knicks had one more chance to win it, but Anthony missed a long 3point attempt with 2 seconds left.
Pierce scored 18 points and Kevin Garnett added 15 points and 13 rebounds for Boston. Oklahoma City leaned heavily on its two All-Stars, who both scored their most points in the postseason. Westbrook scored the go-ahead jumper from the right side with left. Kenyon Martin then missed a jumper from the left wing before Westbrook struck again to make it with Raymond Felton missed a 3-pointer with 12 seconds left, and Oklahoma City closed it out at the foul line.
Nene led Denver with 22 points and eight rebounds, and Danilo Gallinari scored On the issue of nuclear power, the delegates agreed that despite recent unfortunate events in Japan, this will remain an important component of the global energy mix as all possible energy sources will be needed to meet future global energy demands. All the participants, however, underlined the importance of emphasizing the security and safety of nuclear power plants.
Oil price volatility The delegates discussed volatility in the global oil markets since the beginning offocusing particularly on the short-term market developments and the reasons behind the surging prices. There was a general consensus that geopolitical concerns in relation to this issue are overstated since physical oil markets are well-supplied, with comfortable levels of spare capacity and stocks. The ministers asserted that this imposes a common responsibility on the oil-producing and oil-consuming countries.
This can be done through exchanging experience and sharing best practices, the dissemination of technology and the coordination of policies which can be important factors in addressing the challenge of rising demand, the delegates suggested.
They recognized the importance of market-linked pricing while noting the economic and social goals of targeted subsidies. Investment In relation to energy-related investment, the delegates agreed that meeting the growing future energy demand in Asia requires that. Participants also concurred that having an adequate investment framework in place in both the producing and consuming countries is an important factor for promoting this much-needed investment in the region.
On the same theme, it was also noted that underinvestment or delays in investment could lead to excessive over-capacity. Therefore, the ministers suggested, the most pressing challenge facing the industry is to invest in timely capacity expansion adopting a long-term view despite uncertainties surrounding demand. This price increase, he explained, is due to the loss of a large volume of sweet crude from the market, expansionary monetary policies, a weak dollar, fear of the spread of political unrest from other oil-producing nations, and continuing high demand in Southeast Asia.

The Return (Time To Say Goodbye) (Radio Mix) - Various - Taneční Liga 30 (Cassette) has it that only copies were printed.
The agent assigned his case is played by none other than the beautiful starlet Nancy Sinatra, and the pair quickly fall for each other. When it became clear that Capitol and EMI wanted no part of the record, which featured an overdub of philharmonic strings done by George Harrison himself, the Beatles decided to put it out themselves.
The record was later given a proper release innearly half a century after it was recorded. They can go for up to 5 grand. Bernie Taupin, who collaborated with John on many of his biggest hits was credited for penning the lyrics, though Elton John would later admit that John had written the song by himself.
He gave Bernie the credit to help him get his first publishing royalties. If you think you may have a copy lying around somewhere, now would be the time to start digging.
Though met with critical acclaim, neither the single or the LP sold particularly well at first. Did you think classical music would be left off of this list?
Record companies would often enlist the help of relatively unknown artists to provide the album art for their classical and jazz releases. This particular album cover was drawn by a certain starving artist that was destined for stardom. His name? Andy Warhol. There are only seven known copies of this record in existence. Half soundtrack, half dialogue recording, this record was scrapped when Herman Wouk, writer of the novel on which the critically-acclaimed film was based, threatened to never allow the studio to use his work ever again if they released the album.
Wouk was furious at what he saw as blatant theft of his intellectual property, since the B-side of the record was a recording of the climactic courtroom scene, lifted verbatim from his novel. Columbia agreed to halt the release of the album and destroy all copies. A few employees filched some copies before they were demolished — there are rumored to be close to a dozen that survived.
There were 25, copies of this single pressed. In a story that since become punk legend, the Sex Pistols terrorized their label so badly that they were dropped six days after signing the record contract in a publicized ceremony in front of Buckingham Palace.
The very limited Australian edition on translucent vinyl is said to only have 50 of its kind — though only a small handful have surfaced over the years. The song references the assassination of Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement, but Bono says he could have better fleshed out the lyrics.
According to him, the Edge and producer Brian Eno convinced him that keeping the lyrics vague would allow the song to resonate deeper with non-English speakers. Rumor has it that Olivia Newton-John hated the way she looked in the picture printed on the front of the disc so much that she had the record company stop the pressing. Between 20 and 30 records survived. Jazz fans rejoice! There were between and 1, copies of this record printed inbut a small variation in printing makes one particular version especially valuable.
The story goes that famed jazz record label Blue Note ran out of labels when printing the record. In theory, the other version should be worth even more. According to blues legend, Johnson met with the devil at the crossroads between Highway 1 and 8 in Mississippi.
There, Johnson traded his soul for the ability to master the guitar. There were only 15 copies of this record pressed, and the cover of each was hand-painted by Dave Buick, founder of Italy records. The copies were made for a Detroit record release show for the band inas the fledgling band was on the incline, destined for stardom.
Hopefully, you kept it safe. The record label that handled the release, Tiger Lily, was a tax scam operated by the mob.
The scam worked like this — a large portion of records would be pressed and later written off as unsold. A few of these records made it into the right hands and achieved cult status. The pressing of the record that is particularly valuable, however, is one that features a stencil rendition of the front jacket painted by none other than notoriously elusive street-artist Banksy.
There were only of these limited edition hand-spray painted versions made, with several different color variants. The record label decided to be cautious in the wake of the controversy and political turmoil and ordered the records destroyed. You may remember this record from an episode of Pawn Stars. The price was deemed too steep for the vinyl, which was not in the best shape.
One lucky Canadian record collector picked up a copy sans the Warhol artwork-adorned sleeve for 75 cents at a flea market, but this was no ordinary re-pressing. The acetate record ended up being a test pressing that featured early versions of many of the songs — there are only two in existence, and one belongs to former Velvet Underground drummer Moe Tucker. Gordy ordered the pressings destroyed. Soussan unscrupulously bootlegged the record and released it by crediting Eddie Foster as the musician.
The record was a smash hit. Such is the case with this already valuable record. A few tracks were meant to be replaced before the release, but someone at the pressing plant missed the memo, and a few copies featuring the wrong songs were pressed.
There are said to be less than 20 mono copies of the record and only two stereo copies. In a stroke of luck, the North Carolina seller of this extremely rare 78 RPM slab came into possession of the record at an estate sale.
