Tootsie: "General Electric" Iraq provide turbines for the completion of the construction of a power station in Baghdad Thursday 08-10-2015 | 3:59:02 translate.google.com/tran...
Tootsie: Interesting, saw yesterday. There is conference going on here in Houston. A company called blueenergy , has a new, innovative (been producing for 3 years) wind/solar cell turbine.
The turbine is small, and spins with as little as a 4 mph breeze, but the whole turbine is covered with flexible solar panels, so generates both ways. The unit is on a 20' support, which can be put down if needed. I immediately thought they should be pushing this for Iraq! hahaha
Tootsie: the unit itself looked to be just a couple feet tall,

Tootsie: Hungary Increases Kurdistan Region Oil ImportsRussia losing out in global energy battle Basnews | wealthwatch.world/showthr...
15:11 BUDAPEST – Sources [font]have told Reuters[/font] that Hungary is increasing oil imports from the Kurdistan Region at the expense of Russia. Hungarian oil company MOL is active in the Kurdistan Region, and is thought to be the first large scale purchaser of Iraqi Kurdish oil supplied through the Ceyhan pipeline, against the December 2014 agreement between Erbil and Baghdad.
The company declined to confirm where the increase in seabourne oil was originating from, but more tankers inevitably mean that Hungary is purchasing less from Russia.
Although the source declined to give specific volumes, they did say that the imports made up about 40% of requirements at the country’s main Szazhalombatta refinery.
The oil arrives at the Omisalj port in Croatia, and delivered via the JANAF pipeline. A trader claims that the pipeline “is filled completely with Kirkuk”, taking one or two shipments per month.
Baghdad says that the KRG’s exports are illegal, and continues to threaten to take the Erbil administration to court. The KRG, on the other hand, claims that the reduction in the amount of the federal budget it receives has given it no choice other than to bypass the State Organisation for Marketing Oil, and sell to unspecified buyers independently – usually through an opaque network of dealers.

Donnie: It’s Time for the United States to Start Worrying About a Saudi Collapse
Donnie: As if there weren’t already enough problems to worry about in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia might be headed for trouble. From plummeting oil prices to foreign-policy missteps to growing tensions with Iran, a confluence of recent events is mounting to pose some serious challenges for the Saudi regime.
If not properly managed, these events could eventually coalesce into a perfect storm that significantly increases the risk of instability within the kingdom, with untold consequences for global oil markets and security in the Middle East. Here are some of the percolating problems that could throw the country off kilter.
Donnie: Fissures Within the Royal Family. Last week, the Guardian published two letters that an anonymous Saudi prince recently circulated among senior members of the royal family, calling on them to stage a palace coup against King Salman.
The letters allege that Salman, who ascended to the throne in January, and his powerful 30-something son Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have pursued dangerous policies that are leading the country to political, economic, and military ruin.
In an interview with the Guardian, the prince insisted that his demand for a change in leadership not only had growing support within the royal family but across broader Saudi society as well.
“The public [is] also pushing for this very hard,” he claimed. “They say you have to do this or the country will go to disaster.” The article, which includes the letters, written in Arabic, has been shared more than 15,000 times. Donnie: read the rest here: foreignpolicy.com/2015/10...
