Top oil producers except Mexico agree to output cuts: OPEC
Major oil producers except Mexico agreed to cut output in May and June by 10 million barrels per day, OPEC said Friday, after marathon talks to counter a collapse in prices. The videoconference led by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has been seen as the best chance of providing support to prices, which have been wallowing near two-decade lows due to the coronavirus pandemic and a price war between key players Saudi Arabia and Russia. The agreement, which also reduces production by eight million bpd from July to December, depends on Mexico's consent for it to take effect, the oil cartel said after the meeting.

What Happens When the All-Clear Isn't All Clear? COVID-19 ‘Reactivations' in South Korea.
The all-clear after a test for coronavirus infection does not mean all clear, it turns out. Nor can a person who had COVID-19 and then recovered be sure that it won't strike again. Such is the disturbing news coming out of South Korea, the country widely credited as the most successful—and transparent—overcoming the pandemic threat to its people and economy.Trump's Korean Coronavirus Diplomacy Is a DisasterAt a briefing earlier this week, Jeong Eun-kyeong, director-general of the Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that 51 people previously thought to have recovered completely tested positive again shortly after they got out of quarantine. Jeong said the virus may have been "reactivated" in some fashion since it was in the CDC's judgment too early after their recovery for them to have been reinfected. "We are conducting a comprehensive study on this," Jeong said. "There have been many cases when a patient during treatment will test negative one day and positive another." But the CDC is "putting more weight on reactivation as the possible cause." There is reason for concern, but not consternation, according to various analysts."The possibility of false negatives is very real," says Dr. Ogan Gurel, who came to Korea nine years ago armed with a medical degree from Columbia to teach and do research after having served at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. "Think about how the test is done," he says. "You put a swab of cott

Trump family loses bid to move marketing scam lawsuit to arbitration
A federal judge in Manhattan rejected an effort by U.S. President Donald Trump and his adult children to send a lawsuit accusing them of exploiting their family name to promote a marketing scam into arbitration. In a Wednesday night decision concerning the American Communications Network, U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield accused the Trumps of acting unfairly by seeking arbitration after first obtaining "the benefits of litigating in federal court," including the dismissal of a racketeering claim. "This conduct is both substantively prejudicial towards Plaintiffs and seeks to use the [Federal Arbitration Act] as a vehicle to manipulate the rules of procedure to Defendants' benefit and Plaintiffs' harm," Schofield wrote.

Gunsmoke: The Complete Seventeenth Season
(Note: Reviews of Gunsmoke: The Sixteenth Season and Gunsmoke: The Seventeenth Season are identical. In preparing them I watched at episodes and the extras from both sets. Give me a break.)
Despite the steady decline of the DVD format, CBS/Paramount deserves a lot of credit for seeing the 20-season run of Gunsmoke (1955-1975) through all the way to the finish line. For the show's last five seasons, it appears that the label has decided to release full- rather than half-season sets, a wise decision, and they've even added a most welcome supplement. I've been reviewing Gunsmoke sets since the First Season was released in July 2007. The program was so prolific, upwards of 40 episodes per season in its early days, it's been impossible to watch everything in broadcast order. As new sets have been released, I typically watch 7-8 representative episodes then ...Read the entire review
