How this can also be applied to our minds. And basically that stress can be good for you. How have you pushed yourself... 3 years 3 months
Obama and the Oil MarketI'm curious as to what some of you think about this latest attempt by the administration to control oil "manipulation". How much manipulation actually occurs?

He (a Texan) always said "wear cowboy boots, it makes you taller, more intimidating and everyone can hear your foot steps" Needless to say I think it worked for him, but he always said "height helps". And he wasn't short... 3 years 2 months
Public outcry is one but not the only factor in...Public outcry is one but not the only factor in Chevron's solar investment. Some of the majors, including BP and Shell see that in the (very) long term oil will not the dominant source of energy for the majority of the planet. Mainly because finding new oil reservoirs is becoming very difficult,... 3 years 3 months

At least when it affects their re-election. But to think that the oil market is over priced due to manipulation, not a cheap dollar and the fact... 3 years 3 months

Although I agree, these numbers seem way off compared to all other polls the media publishes. 3 years 3 months
