    Re: China

    Agree that China growth will continue at a respectable pace this year (3-5% ??) compared to the rest of the world except India which still doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up, but could easily be the economy to beat if they could only get their ducks in a row.

    Modi is doing his best- Is it good enough?

    China is likely telling more closely to reality these days as it seeks global status and it's peers will be choosy as to how data is measured and reported by the report cooks in Beijing.

    The guy from JP Morgan that made the jaw dropping comment that oil will climb all the way to year end while the stock market will head for the abyss was on MarketWatch today. He is the one that said "Sell into any rally."

    You have to stop and think- This guy represents the largest banking system in the world (I think) and with that cred I am going to listen and probably act somewhat accordingly.

    It is obvious that the epiphany in the market is energy based.

    I for one would not put too much confidence in that oil price jump other than for trading purposes. I believe there may be more discouraging news for oil down the line.

    Incidentally I had posted a site on 12 January, afternoon about competition for GoPro.

    I note they are down over 16% today

    This is a pretty good article on investment opportunities and those to avoid as well as China continues to hunker down and move towards internal growth and infrastructure.

    >Mark-

    FWIW, KBR formerly Kellog Brown and Root, (Brown & Root is formerly a sub of Halliburton) is a construction company specializing is power houses, refineries, chemical plants and anything big dealing with process piping and infrastructure.

    (KBR) could be a major player in oil port extension but it would probably not be a huge part of their business.

    From WIKIPEDIA-

    KBR, Inc. (formerly Kellogg Brown & Root) is an American engineering, procurement, and construction company, formerly a subsidiary of Halliburton. Halliburton acquired Dresser Industries in 1998, Dresser's engineering subsidiary, The M. W. Kellogg Co., was merged with Halliburton's construction subsidiary, Brown & Root, to form Kellogg Brown & Root.

    Link- http://www.kbr.com

    In my days building power houses I ran into B&R on several occasions.

    Re: Port Construction

    What a lot of ports do is to build an offshore pier that is supplied with piping under water from the dock to the offshore pier, sometimes a half mile out. This can be done rather quickly and economically. There does have to be a comparatively shallow slope (or none at all) to the pier to avoid complicated piping issues.
    An alternative is to use a floating terminus the same or similar distance out. A setup like this can be ready in a month if push comes to shove.

    With oil now approaching $31 capitulation is taking place among the drillers. Cessation of PUMPING will now be the order of the day, especially since there is no more room for storage. Expansion of the storage capacity currently in place will absorb some of the excess but will nowhere tax the latent supply at the wellheads. If there is no place to store there is no reason to continue pumping.

    I wonder how many million barrel tankers are currently in production- storage on the fly?

    >Ed- Re fuel cells-

    I believe Plug Power (PLUG) may have the most dedicated production currently in place for fuel cell production and use. They were originally a spin-off of GE (Schenectady) about 10(?) years ago.

    Stock took a wild ride a couple of years ago.

    Yep-

    Kauai residents since September. Still have a home on 75 acres in Albany, NY- Anyone interested?

    Got tired of the -25F with 30mph winds and 120" of snow yearly.

    Got REALLY tired of taxes in NY and how we are punished for improving our property. Tired of paying taxes on wetlands and on pipeline company ROWs (rights of way).

    Tired of a legislature that has as its hallmark the highest percentage of state lawmakers that eventually become convicted felons.

    Tired of the way local religious groups find a way to funnel almost all state aid to education to their respective school systems.

    When I become the appointed 'Benevolent Dictator' I will fix all this.
