The shortage of mental-health services was underscored during the pandemic as more people sought help dealing with the upheaval it caused. Many sufferers of mental-health issues can’t find the help they need. More than a third of the U.S. population, about 130 million people, live in areas that have a dearth of mental-health workers. Residents of underserved areas have roughly a quarter of the providers they need, in aggregate, the Kaiser Family Foundation says. The shortage is even more acute in rural areas.

California Resources was not immediately available for comment. Much of California Resources' oil and gas comes from older wells which have low-but-steady production. California Resources was formed in 2014 after Occidental Petroleum Corp (OXY.N) spun off its California business into a separate entity.

REUTERS/Andrew Kelly/File PhotoAug 15 (Reuters) - A look at the day ahead in U.S. and world markets by Mike Dolan. But in a year of hawkish central banks, it's also a reminder that interest rates can go down as well as up. A big question this week now is whether the red hot U.S. labour market and ebbing mortgage rates helped the domestic U.S. economy weather the chill from overseas. July readouts on retail - both national sales as well as from firms such as Walmart and Target - and housing dominate the week.

WNBA star Brittney Griner's defense team has filed an appeal against her conviction on drug charges in Russia, nearly two weeks after she was sentenced to nine years in jail by a Moscow court. Her lawyer Maria Blagovolina said Monday the defense team had filed the appeal, in a statement via the Telegram messaging app. The move, which was widely expected, comes as Russia and the United States discuss a potential prisoner swap that would secure Griner's release. The American basketball player was arrested at a Moscow airport on Feb. 17 after authorities said they found cannabis-infused vape cartridges in her luggage. She was sentenced on Aug. 4 to 9 years in Russian prison after being found guilty of drug possession and smuggling, after making an emotional final plea for leniency.

Adding to bearish sentiment, Saudi Aramco stands ready to raise crude oil output to its maximum capacity of 12 million bpd if requested to do so by the Saudi Arabian government, Chief Executive Amin Nasser told reporters on Sunday.

The visit came less than two weeks after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan, which prompted days of threatening military exercises by China, including the firing of missiles over the island and into the Taiwan Strait. Pelosi is the highest-level member of the U.S. government to visit Taiwan in 25 years. China’s previous two weeks of threatening exercises prompted Taiwan to put its military on alert, but were met largely with defiance and apathy among the public. China says it wants to use peaceful means to bring Taiwan under its control, but its recent saber rattling has emphasized its threat to take the island by military force. Investment in Taiwan’s crucial semiconductor industry and reducing tensions in the Taiwan Strait are expected to be key topics of discussion.

The effort will help the seed and chemical giant diversify its revenue stream, capitalizing on a decade-long farm data collection effort. Environmental outcomes would then be certified by a third-party verifier so that farmers can potentially sell their grain for a premium, Bayer said. Bayer will charge companies a flat or per-acre fee for the services, and make money from farmers through seed and chemical sales and data-platform subscriptions. The launch initially targets U.S. agriculture but the company envisions broadening it to other countries, though no timetable is set yet, Bayer said. ForGround requires that farmers enroll in Bayer's Climate FieldView platform, where growers log data about agricultural practices such as no-till farming or planting cover crops.

Hopes of smaller rate hikes on signs that U.S. inflation may be peaking helped Wall Street clock up its fourth straight week of gains by Friday. "I do think it's going to be Fed driven if there is another leg down in markets. "I don't think (Fed Chair) Powell is going to say that, I don't think the minutes are going to indicate that," Armstrong said. Fed Rate Futures and StocksU.S. FUTURES EASES&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures were both down around 0.5% after last week's gains. The cut in Chinese interest rates failed to stop Chinese blue chips (.CSI300) easing 0.13%, while the yuan and bond yields also slipped.

Consumers are driving growth as pandemic restrictions are lifted and they have greater freedom of movement. TOKYO—Japan’s economy recovered its prepandemic size in the April-June quarter thanks to strong consumer spending and higher exports, but inflation may start to weigh on growth later this year. The world’s third-largest economy after the U.S. and China expanded 0.5% in the three months to June from the previous quarter and 2.2% on an annualized basis, which reflects what would happen if the pace continued for a full year.

Shipments are expected to level off over the rest of the year, however, as Beijing prioritises the local market to curb domestic fuel inflation. Diesel, gasoline and jet fuel exports for the year are expected to be as much as 40% lower from 2021. This suggests monthly exports will hold near the recent pace over the rest of 2022 as China has already exported nearly 12 million tonnes of products in the first half. JLC expects 2022 diesel exports to shrink by 74% from 2021 to 4.5 million tonnes and gasoline to fall nearly 40% to 9 million tonnes. Only aviation fuel exports will rise, up 11% to 9.5 million tonnes, JLC said, as COVID-19 lockdowns and border controls cut domestic and international Chinese flights.

The cut in rates helped cushion the blow a little and left Chinese blue chips (.CSI300) steady, while the yuan and bond yields slipped. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan (.MIAPJ0000PUS) was flat, having bounced 0.9% last week. Japan's Nikkei (.N225) rose 1.1% as data showed the economy grew an annualised 2.2% in the second quarter, just a touch under estimates. Hopes for a soft economic landing will also get a health check from U.S. retail sales data that are expected to show a sharp slowdown in spending in July. S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures were both down around 0.2% after last week's gains.

The projections are part of First Street Foundation's new, peer-reviewed extreme heat model, which shows that most of the country will have upticks in the number of days with heat index temperatures above 100 degrees over the next 30 years as a result of climate change. The heat index represents what a temperature feels like to the human body when humidity and air temperature are combined. As humans continue to pump heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, temperatures around the world are rising, which increases both the frequency of extreme heat events and their severity. The researchers looked at the seven hottest days expected for any property this year and calculated what the equivalent could be in 30 years. Across the country, they found that, on average, a community's seven hottest days are projected to become the location's 18 hottest days by 2053.

Hedge fund manager David Neuhauser says that markets look "artificially high" right now, and are staging a bear market rally that will not last. Major U.S. indexes have been in a bear market — or over 20% off recent peaks — for much of this year, with the S & P posting its worst first half since 1970 . In July, however, stocks have rallied, and many on Wall Street have been debating if the bear market is over. "I think ultimately, more than likely, we're gonna be in a bear market for quite some time. Why Neuhauser is so bearish on markets Neuhauser said that the current market has not been operating on fundamentals for a while, with "all the money that's been pumping the system."

One stock that Meeks likes is tech giant IBM .

But he plans to "wait a bit longer" to reinvest aggressively in tech stocks. "Here is a company that dominates, with only two other players worldwide in an oligopoly," Meeks said of Micron.

Although gold is seen as a hedge against inflation, rising U.S. interest rates dull non-yielding bullion's appeal.

WASHINGTON/DUBAI, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Whether or not Tehran and Washington accept a European Union "final" offer to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, neither is likely to declare the pact dead because keeping it alive serves both sides' interests, diplomats, analysts and officials said. "We are in no rush," said a senior Iranian official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Therefore, time is not of the essence for Iran," said a second senior Iranian official. read moreDANGLINGThe lack of better policy options for Washington, and Tehran's view that time is on its side, could leave the deal dangling.

REUTERS/Lisa LeutnerAug 15 (Reuters) - Iran and the United States are struggling to overcome divisions on three major issues in indirect talks on revival of a 2015 nuclear deal while months of negotiations have entered a crucial stage. Grossi said more than 40 IAEA cameras would keep operating as part of the core monitoring in Iran that predates the 2015 deal. But President Joe Biden cannot promise this because the nuclear deal is a non-binding political understanding, not a legally-binding treaty. Many Republican senators detest the nuclear pact and even some Democrats oppose it.
