REUTERS/Angus Mordant/File PhotoTOKYO (Reuters) - Oil rose for a fifth day on Thursday after a surprise fall in U.S. crude inventories gave further legs to a rally driven by optimism that vaccines will end the coronavirus pandemic and revive demand for fuels. West Texas Intermediate crude was up by 34 cents, or 0.7%, at $46.05 a barrel, having gained 1.8% on Wednesday. Stockpiles at the Cushing, Oklahoma, delivery point for WTI, fell by 1.7 million barrels. But gasoline demand for the week fell by 128,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 8.13 million bpd, the lowest since June.

U.S. oil stockpiles fell 754,000 barrels last week, data showed, while analysts in a Reuters poll had predicted a 127,000-barrel rise.

FILE PHOTO: Sockeye salmon are seen in Bristol Bay, Alaska, in an undated handout picture provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Large-scale mining in the Bristol Bay watershed poses serious risks to salmon and native cultures in this pristine corner of southwest Alaska, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said in a report. If built, it would produce 70 million tons of gold, molybdenum and copper ore a year and create a pit 1,970 feet (600 meters) deep in Alaska’s Bristol Bay watershed. “A permit denial leaves the door open for future mining in Bristol Bay under more politically favorable circumstances,” the group said in a statement. The United Tribes of Bristol Bay, which represents 15 area tribal governments, and other mine opponents said they would seek permanent protections for the region.

Vance published his memoir, "Hillbilly Elegy," in June 2016, no one could have foreseen how Donald Trump's imminent electoral victory would propel him into the role of America's de facto "poverty whisperer." "Hillbilly Elegy" and its convenient timing propelled the author to the top of the talking-head circuit. These shared experiences make it obvious to me that Netflix's "Hillbilly Elegy" fails to communicate anything of real substance. In doing so, "Hillbilly Elegy" turned Vance into a household name by peddling his anecdotal accounts of welfare abuse or habitual unemployment to justify the idea that people are to blame for their own suffering. By following Vance's lead, Howard has turned a community's moral failings and human anguish into Oscar bait for those looking to find yet another reason to scoff at the working class.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices climbed to the highest in more than eight months on Wednesday, as data showing a surprise drop in weekly U.S. crude inventories extended a rally driven by hopes that a COVID-19 vaccine will boost fuel demand. U.S. crude inventories fell by 754,000 barrels last week, data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed, surprising analysts who in a Reuters poll had predicted a 127,000-barrel rise. “Crude oil prices are trading at their highest levels since early March, supported by positive market sentiment as a result of vaccine news and strong oil demand in Asia,” said UBS oil analyst Giovanni Staunovo. A weaker dollar also supported crude prices, making oil less expensive for buyers holding other currencies. “The recent depreciation of the U.S. dollar has helped temper the impact of surging oil prices for some of the world’s largest consumers of energy,” said Stephen Brennock of broker PVM.

West Texas Intermediate crude gained 33 cents, or 0.7%, to $45.24, after rising more than 4% on Tuesday. OPEC+ producers have been withholding supplies to support prices after pandemic lockdowns earlier this year caused an evaporation in demand.

In South Korea, daily infections also rose from a relative lull in late September and October to hover above 300, the highest since late August. Hong Kong, meanwhile, has declared its "fourth wave" of coronavirus infections, after multiple isolated clusters emerged. Its daily cases -- still within single-digits in early November -- exploded over the past week to reach 80 on Tuesday. In the US and Europe, where daily cases are surging by tens of thousands, contact tracing seems not only impossible, but futile. David Nabarro, a World Health Organization (WHO) special Covid-19 envoy, said unlike Europe, Asia did not relax restrictions prematurely.

Alaska Airlines is acquiring 13 additional Boeing 737 Max 9 aircraft in a deal that will also see the sale of 10 Airbus A320 jets. The FAA ungrounded the Boeing 737 Max on November 18 following a 20-month evaluation that still has flyers saying they won't fly on it. Alaska will grow its 737 Max 9 fleet to 45 aircraft with the new order from Air Lease Corporation. Alaska Airlines announced a leasing deal for more Boeing 737 Max aircraft on Monday just days following the end of a 20-month grounding by the Federal Aviation Administration after two fatal crashes. If there's one thing that Boeing, the 737 Max, and Alaska Airlines all have in common, it's a home in Washington.

Bloated mink carcasses have risen up and resurfaced from mass graves in Denmark, according to local media. Denmark has begun a mass cull of its 17 million mink after a new strain of COVID-19, transmissible to humans, was discovered on some farms. The risk of transmission from the carcasses is low, the police spokesman told DR, but added that "it is never healthy to get close to dead animals." The carcasses of Danish mink culled to prevent the spread of a mutated strain of COVID-19 have swollen up and risen to the surface of their mass graves, according to local media. "Mink, which have been infected with corona, are transmitted primarily through breathing, so in this way dead mink infects less than live mink," he told DR. "But there may still be bacteria in the fur on them."

Joe Biden's presidency is likely good news for Uber and Lyft. With the new gig-work model in place, companies are likely to try and replicate it in other states. Federal efforts to classify drivers or couriers as employees are likely to fall flat thanks to a divided congress, experts say. Another potential variable is the fact that some of Biden's own advisers have close ties to the tech giants' lobbying efforts. The group is similar to a consortium formed by Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, and others in California to garner support for Prop.

Maradona later gave conflicting accounts of what had happened. His second goal came after a dribble of 70 yards through five English players and a final feint past Shilton to power the ball into an empty net. “No player in the history of the World Cup had ever dominated in the way Maradona ruled over Mexico-86,” Gardner wrote. In the semifinals, against Italy, the host team, Maradona scored the penalty kick that put Argentina ahead as it won the shootout. The match was played in the raucous port city of Naples, where Maradona had played professionally and led Napoli to two titles in the Italian League.
