More than $12bn (£9.7bn) has been spent on devices, known as open-loop scrubbers, which extract sulphur from the exhaust fumes of ships that run on heavy fuel oil. but dumping the sulphur into the sea [“washwater from exhaust gas cleaning systems”] instead of the air, enabling ships to still use heavy fuel oil. A total of 3,756 ships, both in operation and under order, have already had scrubbers installed according to DNV GL, the world’s largest ship classification company.
Only 23 of these vessels have had closed-loop scrubbers installed, a version of the device that does not discharge into the sea and stores the extracted sulphur in tanks before discharging it at a safe disposal facility in a port.
Under IMO regulations, ships are permitted to use open-loop scrubbers as what they call “equivalents”. These are defined as: “Any fitting, material, appliance or apparatus to be fitted in a ship or other procedures, alternative fuel oils, or compliance methods used as an alternative to that required.”

The surprise move, affecting one of the world’s largest energy shippers, operating more than 50 supertankers, comes as U.S. President Donald Trump seeks to exert maximum pressure on Iran to drop nuclear programs. In what the State Department called “one of the largest sanctions actions the U.S. has taken” since curbs were re-imposed on Iran in November last year, two units of COSCO were named alongside other companies in claims of involvement in sanctions-busting shipments of Iranian oil.
COSCO Shipping Tanker (Dalian) Co. and COSCO Shipping Tanker (Dalian) Seaman & Ship Management Co. were determined by the Secretary of State on September 25, 2019, to meet thecriteria for the imposition of sanctions under Executive Order (E.O.) 13846.

A ban on Russian state-owned banks’ operations or on their use of one or another currency follows, it would be possible to clearly call it a declaration of economic war,” said Dmitry Medvedev, Russian prime minister. Legislation introduced last week in draft form by Republican and Democratic senators proposes curbs on the operations of several state-owned Russian banks in the United States and restrictions on their use of the dollar.”And it would be necessary, it would be needed to react to this war economically, politically, or, if needed, by other means. And our American friends need to understand this,” he said’

Six senators — three Republicans and three Democrats — led by Republican Lindsey Graham penned the DASKAA legislation. “The sheer momentum building behind these various bills means that it is becoming very likely something gets passed,” a sovereign strategist said.

Fosse/Verdon: lit the world?

22 September, 2019

[June 6 2019]
Michelle Williams is expected to receive an Emmy nomination for Fosse/Verdon when they are announced next month. It would be her first. The show, though, hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire the way Murphy’s shows are pop culture centerpieces, and it lags behind “Fargo” in critical acclaim, standing at a serviceable 68 on Metacritic. But “Fosse/Verdon” did have its best episode of the season with the seventh hour, which focused on Bob Fosse (Rockwell) and Gwen Verdon‘s (Williams) original production of “Chicago” and featured a dynamite turn from Williams. Yahoo Entertainment/Goldderby.com

*5/31/19 update: The series came to a natural conclusion so it’s clear that there won’t be a second season of Fosse/Verdon.

[June 28 2018 Deutsche Bank fails 2d part of Stress Test by feds ]

Deutsche Bank AG’s (DBKGn.DE) U.S. subsidiary failed on Thursday, June 28, the second part of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s annual stress tests. “Concerns include material weaknesses in the firm’s data capabilities and controls supporting its capital planning process, as well as weaknesses in its approaches and assumptions used to forecast revenues and losses under stress,” While failing the U.S. stress test would not likely affect the banks’ ability to pay dividends to shareholders, which are typically paid out at the group level, it will require Deutsche Bank to make changes to its U.S. operations. It also means the bank would not be able to make any distributions to its German parent without the Fed’s approval.

Michelle Williams is returning for “Venom 2”

While it’s not been officially confirmed yet, it seems fairly likely that the Venom sequel will be released on October 2nd 2020.

Sony has bookmarked that slot for an “untitled Sony/Marvel sequel,” and given that the first film came out in October to great success there’s no reason to suspect the studio would try and fix something that already worked.

[August 28 2019]

Given the blockbuster success of “Venom” with $856 million worldwide, it stands that Hardy and Williams will earn bigger paychecks for returning in the sequel. Robert Richardson, the three-time Academy Award-winning cinematographer who is coming off of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has signed on to shoot Venom 2.

Andy Serkis was tapped last week to helm the sequel to Sony’s 2018 hit, and the move now reunites him with the director of photography of his directorial debut, the 2017 drama Breathe. Richardson’s boarding also shows how fast the studio is moving on the project. Sony hopes to shoot the follow-up to “Venom” in the fall. “Venom 2” is likely to be released in October 2020.

[ October 23   ]

In China, “Venom” scored $87.2 million, a drop of just 14% from its opening weekend. Its 10-day cumulative score is $187 million. “Venom” carried the global box office this weekend, thanks to its massive $111 million debut in China.

That ranks as the second biggest opening ever for a superhero film in that territory, behind just “Avengers: Infinity War.” Its performance in the Middle Kingdom powered “Venom” to $673.5 million worldwide, including $467 million internationally. Though its impressive run in the U.S. is largely coming to a close, audience reaction overseas could propel the antihero film past $700 million globally.

Venom is still a record holder after Halloween gave the symbiote a bit of a fright this weekend. Halloween enjoyed an impressive $76.2M opening weekend but fell short of the October record Venom set a couple weeks ago with $80.3M. To date, Venom has earned $171.1M domestic and $461.8M worldwide.

Venom dropped just 55% in its second weekend.   Venom held on even better than expected, delivering a second weekend at #1.

With an estimated $80 million, Sony’s release of Venom into 4,250 locations not only topped the weekend box office, but it topped the previous October opening weekend record of $55.7 million set by Gravity in 2013 by over $20 million. It’s benefiting from being the shiny new superhero movie in a while. While Sony contends that the production cost was net $100M before P&A, it’s said to be around $116M with Georgia tax credits. Either way, it’s still cheap enough. If Venom had launched to $150M-plus globally –that’s even if the film had broken down stateside with a $55M-$60M opening–Venom would have still been safe. Internationally, Venom delivered $125.2 million from 58 markets for a record October global opening over $205 million. We’re told that a $450M global take ultimately gets Venom to break-even during its theatrical release. China’s Tencent is reportedly covering around a third of the production cost, however, a China release for Venom has yet to be announced. “If Venom is a big hit, maybe it’ll make it easier for a filmmaker like Kelly Reichardt to get her movie made. “

In order to be nominated, a film or actor doesn’t need to be considered “good” by everybody, but instead “the best” by a few: academy members are essentially voting for one movie; each member’s ballot is counted towards one film, their number one vote. If that film receives the fewest amount of number one votes, then it’s the second pick that counts, and so on down the ballot so that the ballot is attributed to exactly one movie or performance.

This year, Blue Valentine and Michelle Williams could benefit from this rule. The film itself hasn’t had a huge box-office take, but those who have seen it are rapturous in their praise, particularly for the gutting performances by Gosling and Williams.

For the fifth spot? Ms. Bening’s co-star Julianne Moore? Michelle Williams for “Blue Valentine”? Lesley Manville for Mike Leigh’s “Another Year”? Fourteen-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, a long shot for “True Grit”?
I’d say Williams is in by virtue of her campaign presence and Weinstein’s wiles;
Michelle Williams for Blue Valentine (it just got bluer) Falling off the list somehow
Williams being in a tough-to-watch indie …each of them seems equally vulnerable–
I’m thinking that Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine) have Oscar nominations in their future.
