Devon Energy Sees Higher Oil Production, Lower Debt - Thestreet

Devon projects its production from Eagle Ford will increase from 65,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the second quarter to 100,000 boe per day next year. It produced 95,000 boe per day in the Permian Basin in the second quarter, a level that is expected to slowly rise in coming quarters. The company reduced its debt by $3.2 billion in the second quarter by selling non-core assets and with cash on hand and free cash flow. Its pending $2.3 billion sale of non-core assets (mostly natural gas) that span across six U.S. states to Linn Energy ( LINE ) will reduce debt further. The stock, which closed at $74.70 on Monday, is up 21% this year, compared with the S&P 500's 8% gain.

Norwalk's Paul Lamb Wins 100th Career Game | Sandusky Register

They face the Rockets again on Tuesday on the road. "We've had two games so far this year (before Saturday) and we've come out a little flat in both those games," Lewis said. "So to come away, especially with a 1-0 result here, where it could've went either way, we're going to take it as a good result and basically a win in confidence for us. That's the biggest thing, especially playing those three teams in less than a week." Edison had six shots on goal, while Norwalk had 14. "Our guys played well. It was just a hot day very muggy I was after them just to get up their energy and they really struggled to do that," Lamb said. "We did a lot of subbing to try to help that.

Week In Reviews: Mfk Transports Cavanaugh To Spain; More Reviews - Yahoo News

[Photo: Marc Much] Amy Cavanaugh is enchanted with mfk. and gives it four stars. The small Spanish-influenced restaurant "captures the essence of seaside eating" with a menu that's "as straightforward as it is delicious." Cured anchovies sweep her "right back across the ocean" to Spain while manchego and speck croquettes are "cheesy fried crowd-pleasers." Other successful bar bites include boquerones that "reward those who seek piquant flavors" and veggie dishes are not to be missed either as a bowl of greens with feta, purple carrots, onions and herbs is a "perfectly pleasant salad." Lastly, seared corn sprinkled with cotija and paprika is like an "elevated elotes" and quite simply a "dish you return for." [TOC] Phil Stefani's 437 Rush gets a makeover that's "just enough to freshen things up," writes Laura Bianchi. The "most basic dishes misfire" like a "boring and too-salty" roast beef and a "dry" bacon-wrapped pork loin entree, but a seared scallops with pickled mushrooms and truffle dressing has a "savory complexity." Other standouts include a "traditional and delicious" hearty spelt salad, rich raviolini that's "riveting" and a "perfectly cooked" prime ribeye fillet. For dessert try the tartufo, a "sweet-salty marriage" of cappuccino semifreddo, salted almonds and crumbled graham crackers. [Crain's] In Oakbrook Terrace, Devon Seafood and Steak is attracting diners with "high quality" fish and "inventive entrees." Jennifer Olvera kicks things off with oysters that are "as fresh as can be" but have "room for improvement in the shucking department." The "simple and summery" Vietnamese crab spring rolls and strawberry-pistachio salad in sherry vinaigrette are also solid starter options.

Bengals Dt Devon Still's Daughter Fights For Life | Daily World | Dailyworld.com

Once she arrives Thursday, Leah will undergo two more rounds of chemo before a surgery attempt to remove the tumor in September. "It's definitely a roller-coaster," Still said. "Being here playing football, being here with the guys, having a reason to laugh sometimes takes a lot of that sorrow off of me, or the depression, whatever you want to call it. Playing football helps out a lot." He enters training camp healthy in a season where pressure begins to mount for production. Each time Still took strides toward reflecting his second-round pick potential, an injury derailed him. Whether his back or elbow, or a numbers game, he's played in just 18 games in two seasons with half a sack.

Babies’ Inability To Make Eye-contact/smile Used To Trigger Autistic Interventions | Psych Central

The ability to coordinate attention with another person without a smile, without an emotional component, seems to be particularly important for high-risk siblings in the development of ASD symptoms, says Devon Gangi, Ph.D. student and first author of the study. The detection of markers associated with autism early in life, before a child can be diagnosed with autism, is important to help identify children at the greatest need for early interventions. The findings show that early joint attention initiation without smiling matter-of-fact looking at an examiner to communicate interest in a toy was negatively associated with ASD symptoms. According to the study, the less joint attention without smiling at eight months in a high-risk sibling, the more likely they were to have elevated ASD symptoms by 30 months. Experts believe impairments in joint attention are a core deficit in ASD. Now we know that less early initiating joint attention without smiling is a particularly important skill for high-risk siblings.

Why Natural Gas Prices Traded Down Last Week - Yahoo Finance

Natural Gas Fund (UNG) or natural gas producers such as Chesapeake Energy (CHK), Devon Energy (DVN), Range Resources (RRC), and Quicksilver Resources (KWK) should monitor inventory draws and builds because theyre significant data points in the national supply and demand picture of natural gas. The supply and demand dynamics of the commodity affect its price and, in turn, the margins of companies that produce natural gas. This weeks marginal decrease in natural gas prices is a negative for these companies. Background: Natural gas inventory is far lower than average Current natural gas inventory is ~33% lower than the average of the past five years because last winter brought extremely cold weather. Natural gas demand surged, which resulted in a large depletion of inventories as well as an increase in price. The front month natural gas futures contract was trading around ~$3.50 per MMBtu in early November to peak above $6 per MMBtu at points in February. Its currently at ~$4.20 per MMBtu.
