OSLO — Norway hired Ståle Solbakken to replace Lars Lagerbäck as coach of the national team on Thursday.Lagerbäck had a contract until 2022 but leaves after failing to qualify for next year’s European Championship following a loss to Serbia in the playoffs in October.The Norwegian soccer federation said it has been in talks with Solbakken “in full transparency with Lars Lagerbäck” about being the team’s future coach and has chosen to make the change immediately.Solbakken is a former midfielder for Norway and recently resigned from his job as coach of Danish team FC Copenhagen.He takes charge of an improving national team which features attacking players like Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland and Real Madrid midfielder Martin Ødegaard.“For me, this is a good time to take over,” Solbakken said. “Lars Lagerbäck and (assistant) Per Joar Hansen have done a solid job and developed a foundation that will be exciting to work on.“I look forward to taking on the task of building a strong team.”___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsThe Associated Press
(Bloomberg) -- OPEC+ is closing in on an agreement on output cuts after days of tense negotiations, according to delegates.After direct talks between the group’s heavyweights -- Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates -- discussions are now focusing on proposals for gradual easing of output cuts over several months, delegates said. There could be a one-month delay before the tapering starts, according to one delegate. The proposals, if accepted by the whole OPEC+ group, would modify the current deal that allows 1.9 million barrels a day of fresh crude supplies to be added to the market from Jan. 1. It’s not clear yet whether the proposals would return that same volume of production over a longer period, or a different amount.The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies need to hash out an agreement on supply levels for next year. Initially, talks had centered on delaying the January production hike by three months, but that option ran into obstacles on Monday amid a clash between Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Since then, delegates have been trying to find a way forward.“Ministers are inching closer to a compromise that should break the impasse,” Energy Aspects Ltd. co-founder Amrita Sen said in a note. “OPEC+ officials are debating a more limited adjustment to the current deal than the proposed three-month delay.”Oil was little changed at $47.98. Russian PositionA gentler tapering of the production cuts could offer a potential compromise after days of talks, offering something to members that are concerned about the fragility of the market, and also to nations that are impatient to raise production. The Russian government, after internal talks with its own oil companies, is ready to agree to a gradual easing of supply curbs within the first quarter of 2021, said a person familiar with the discussions.OPEC+ is due to meet for online talks at 2 p.m. Vienna time on Thursday, after a two-day delay to give countries more time to reach a consensus.OPEC+ rescued the oil market this year from an unprecedented slump, slashing production as the pandemic crushed demand. While crude has surged in recent weeks, a new wave of virus infections is hitting the global economy. Some members believe demand is still too fragile to absorb additional barrels.Fractious talks earlier this week raised the specter of the deal falling apart -- that would sink prices and batter an industry that spans from tiny nations like Gabon to corporate giants such as Exxon Mobil Corp. The intensity of the fight between Saudi Arabia and the UAE took OPEC-watchers by surprise, as the pair have long been staunch allies. But Abu Dhabi has been pursuing a more independent oil policy and wants to pump more.Over the summer, Abu Dhabi’s impatience led it to casting aside its usual obedience to cartel discipline, and pump more crude than its quota allowed. The Saudis were furious, and summoned UAE Energy Minister Suhail Al-Mazrouei to Riyadh for a public dressing down.While the UAE subsequently atoned, people familiar with its oil policy say Abu Dhabi believes the current quota is unfair, and is keen to make the most of massive investments in production capacity. It’s also planning a new regional price benchmark based around its Murban crude variety, which needs the kind of volumes that clash with production limits.If a deal is eventually crafted, it will be scrutinized for its ability to keep the coalition together and disciplined. Tensions are expected to reemerge next year.(Updates with detail from first paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Disregarding diplomatic propriety, Trudeau interfered in India’s internal affairs to woo Punjabis – mainly Sikhs.
Devoid of the mockery that greeted its subjects upon their mass suicide in March 1997 (the largest ever committed on U.S. soil), Heaven’s Gate: The Cult of Cults takes a comprehensive look at the infamous millenarian outfit in order to understand how they came to be, how they came to their fatal end—namely, with numerous adherents castrated and everyone overdosing on phenobarbital and vodka—and, more fundamentally, how such groups operate, both in terms of attracting and indoctrinating devotees. Director Clay Tweel’s four-part HBO Max docuseries (premiering Dec. 3) is thus the fascinating story of a truly out-there collective that sought salvation at the tail of the Hale-Bopp comet, as well as an incisive examination of cult dynamics.Although no matter the seriousness of its analysis, this non-fiction effort can’t fully change the fact that—courtesy of its own philosophy and behavior—Heaven’s Gate ultimately earned whatever ridicule and condemnation it received.The infamous cult was founded by music teacher Marshall Herff Applewhite and nurse Bonnie Nettles, who met in 1972 when the former was treated by the latter at a hospital (for what one interviewee contends was a “psychotic episode”). Together, they came to believe they were messiahs whose teachings could help people physically transform into aliens, at which point they’d be able to board a spaceship bound for heaven (known as “The Next Level”). Their scripture was a combination of New Age philosophy and New Testament dogma, and with many 1970s Americans seeking fulfillment from alternate “religions,” they quickly attracted a following. In 1975, they became brief national news when, in Waldport, Oregon, they convinced 20 attendees at one of their seminars to “vanish” along with them.Netflix Reveals What Mysterious ‘Alien Worlds’ May Look LikeApplewhite and Nettles went by Do and Ti (taken from The Sound of Music song), and “The Two” preached an ascetic way of life that involved strict obedience, the rejection of all earthly goods and relationships—especially with family and friends—the changing of names to six-letter monikers that ended in “ody,” the suppression of sexual urges, and the overarching notion that the end-times were fast approaching and that their conversion into celestial E.T.s destined for paradise was right around the corner. It sounds outright insane, and yet as Do and Ti’s travelling caravan of acolytes made its way across the country, living at camp grounds and subsisting thanks to the generosity of one member (who had a hefty trust fund), their ranks began to swell. Before long, they were making headlines as an up-and-coming little movement—attention that came with a significant degree of censure, such that Do and Ti eventually took their cult underground.Through commentary from former members like Sawyer and Frank, as well as from sociologist Janja Lalich, religious studies professor Benjamin Zeller, and cult exit counselor Steve Hassan, Tweel lays out Heaven’s Gate’s insidious methods. Though many of its constituents came from stable homes and professional careers, the group was capable of getting its hooks into them by promising both order and contentment in a tumultuous world. At the same time, it played into their attraction to the unknown, the great beyond, and life’s grand mysteries via an ethos modeled after Star Trek. Also central to its allure was the idea of escape—from an unfulfilling society, an unsatisfactory former identity, and a corporeal body plagued by forbidden sensual acts.Heaven’s Gate astutely points out that Do’s championing of asexuality—and castration, which is recounted in grisly fashion by Sawyer—stemmed from his own self-hatred regarding his homosexuality, just as the 1997 arrival of the Hale-Bopp comet provided Do with the prophetic “sign” he needed to motivate followers to go through with his final plan. Director Tweel shines an illuminating light on the group’s twisted manipulations and rationalizations, which became even more convoluted once Ti died of cancer in 1985, thereby disproving her and Do’s metamorphosis doctrine and forcing Do to continue onward with a revised version of their fate: now, they’d all exit their human forms (i.e their “vehicles”) to spiritually ascend to the “Next Level.”Do’s canny response to this crisis (which Reza Aslan explains is a prototypical example of “cognitive dissonance”) let the “family” continue on its path. Tweel’s portrait of Heaven’s Gate benefits from candid first-person testimonials of Sawyer and Frank, and also the raft of home movies that Heaven’s Gate shot during its later years, replete with clips of Christmas parties, forums, and exit interviews in which zealous men and women, their heads shaved to enhance their androgyny, speak about their joy over finishing this phase of their journey. What emerges is an exposé of a carefully thought-out system designed to de- and reprogram susceptible individuals searching for a new self, a new start, and a new adventure. While Lalich and Hassan suggest that anyone might have fallen under Do’s spell, that notion is contradicted by the fact that Heaven’s Gate failed miserably to attract fresh blood during the early ‘90s; in seminar videos from that decade, strangers are seen asking tough, skeptical questions, and often walking out rather than continuing to endure the hosts’ sci-fi nonsense. More persuasive is the series’ dissection of cults’ process of brainwashing through isolation, repetition, and peer pressure—the last of which compels people to go along with group attitudes even when they directly contradict obvious, verifiable reality (a phenomena borne out by the Asch conformity experiments).Tweel’s sturdy formal approach mixes confessional talking head interviews and intimate archival material. It also involves swirling animated interludes that evoke the enlightenment-by-way-of-mutation nature of Heaven’s Gate’s beliefs, and which contrast sharply with the creepy VHS movies made by Do and his bald-headed disciples. Most unforgettable of all, however, is Sawyer’s late admission that, though he left his alien-obsessed brethren due to his inability to quell his carnal impulses (in other words, he couldn’t stop masturbating!), he remains committed to one day achieving transcendence and reuniting with Do and Ti—a revelation which proves that it’s far easier to escape a cult physically than it is mentally.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Truck driver Jesse Morgan thrust himself into the middle of the post-2020 election drama on Tuesday when he claimed at a press conference that he had unwittingly driven a truck full of suspicious mail-in ballots from New York to Pennsylvania ahead of Election Day.“I know I saw ballots with return addresses filled out,” said Morgan, who claims to work for a Postal Service contractor. “Thousands of them, thousands.”The appearance at a voter fraud event hosted by the right-wing Thomas More Center turned Morgan into the latest viral star on the Trumpist right. And, soon enough, his claims were being amplified by the president, his legal team, conservative groups unaffiliated with the campaign, and Trump supporters themselves all of whom have argued that nearly 300,000 bogus mail-in ballots were used in Pennsylvania, Morgan’s home state, to put Joe Biden over the top.Video of Morgan’s speech on Twitter has been viewed more than 3 million times—helped along by a Trump tweet—while the president and his campaign have racked up more than 60,000 retweets on just their own posts about Morgan. Sean Hannity dutifully put Morgan on his show.> Jesse Morgan—a truck driver (subcontractor) with USPS in PENNSYLVANIA...pic.twitter.com/EFxXZnQCUS> > — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 1, 2020Left unsaid in it all is a biographical detail that prompts questions about the validity of Morgan’s already dubious claims. In addition to witnessing supposed voter fraud, the man believes his family has been stalked cross-country by ghosts.Before he became a hero in MAGAworld, Morgan was an amateur ghost-hunter.Morgan’s first success came with a 2016 video about a “shadow person” living in his basement, from where he claimed to hear strange noises.“I will not raise my daughters in a place that is haunted,” Morgan declares in the video, dubbed “Shadow person caught on camera.”Despite hearing those noises, Morgan—again, in the video—descended down the stairs. But as he walked down, he saw a “shadow person,” who looked suspiciously similar to a normal human wearing a black morphsuit, peeking at him from the stairs. Morgan’s camera suddenly tilted, and the supposed ghost disappeared.Former Trump Lawyer Sidney Powell Cites QAnon Promoter in Voter Fraud LawsuitMorgan claimed in a second video that he moved out of his house because of the spirit, only to find his new home in York, Pennsylvania, also infested with spirits. In that shaky, dimly filmed video, dubbed “follow up to shadow person,” Morgan narrated his concerns about paranormal infestations while a knick-knack moved suspiciously on a shelf behind him and a picture flew off the shelf.It’s unclear what caused the latter two signs of shadow people.Morgan’s videos were a hit, earning him an appearance on a Travel Channel show about ghosts. In that appearance, he laid out his theory that the shadow person from his first house hadn’t followed him, implying that he was being haunted by multiple shadow people.“I haven’t seen the shadow guy since then,” Morgan said.Morgan and his three brothers, who also claim to have been haunted, eventually made a low-budget documentary about their brushes with ghosts and shadow-men. A fundraising pitch for The Shadows Amongst Us describes the Morgans as a “family haunted by paranormal events despite living in different parts of the country.”Much of the brothers’ 2019 film focused on Jesse Morgan’s blurry YouTube videos as evidence of the hauntings. At the end of the movie, Morgan offered some practical advice about fighting off the shadow spirits.“It lives off your emotion, it lives off of stress, it lives off of dysfunction,” Morgan said. “So don’t be scared, don’t be afraid. As crazy and stupid as it may sound, walk around your house and say ‘In the name of Jesus Christ, I command you to leave.’ It’s helped me out 1,000 times, to tell you the truth.”One Amazon reviewer remarked they’ve never seen a film on Amazon score so poorly—at 2.1 out of 5 stars—while others wondered how the “documentary” could have made it to the streaming service in the first place. Another reviewer compared it to “listening to your most boring coworker drone on and on.”All of the ghost videos were deleted from Morgan’s YouTube account sometime after the press conference. Morgan didn’t respond to a request for comment.Morgan’s voter fraud claims on Tuesday similarly lacked a convincing premise. He claimed a series of “weird” incidents — including interactions with a postal employee he described as “kind of rude” — on a truck drive from Bethpage, New York to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He said those incidents convinced him that he had been tricked into some sort of voter fraud scheme carrying bogus ballots. Much of Morgan’s speech centered on the fact that he couldn’t find his preferred trailer at work a day after the supposed voter fraud, with the implication that Morgan’s trailer had been stolen for nefarious purposes.“I liked that trailer,” Morgan said. “It was a nice trailer.”Despite the thin nature of the allegations, Morgan’s claims have been promoted by a handful of Trump supporters. The press conference was organized by Phill Kline, the former attorney general of Kansas who was suspended indefinitely from practicing law in 2013 over allegations of perjury and misleading officials.Kline said at the press conference that he had pressed Morgan on any criminal background and substance abuse issues, in an attempt to test his honesty.“Jessie revealed to me that he had been a drug addict, that he’d been arrested, that he served some time,” Kline said.Pennsylvania court records show that Morgan has been arrested multiple times. In the most serious case, Morgan faced a raft of charges in 2005 that included forgery, theft, and receiving stolen property. Morgan eventually pleaded guilty to the forgery charge and was sentenced to more than six months in prison.Kline claimed at the press conference that he was only revealing Morgan’s background with drugs and crime because he knew the media would eventually use Morgan’s history to attack his voter fraud claims. But neither Kline nor Morgan revealed his position as a prominent believer in ghost-stalking.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Please visit: https://www.fortunebusinessinsights.com/industry-reports/construction-equipment-market-100521 Market RestraintHigh Pollution Levels Caused by Construction Activities to Impede Market GrowthConcerns stemming from pollution levels caused by the construction sector are likely to stall the adoption of traditional construction equipment. The World Green Building Council estimates that the bricks produced in kilns for constructing buildings account for roughly 20% of the global black carbon emissions. Moreover, an additional 11% of the total carbon emissions can be attributed to construction operations. According to UN Environment, global emissions from the building & construction sector rose by 2% in 2018 from 2017 levels. The utilization of obsolete and energy-inefficient construction equipment is the most prominent reason for surging pollution levels in this sector, especially in developing countries where investment in construction is inadequate. In response, governments are implementing stringent regulations in energy-heavy industries to curb emissions, which may hinder the growth of this market.
