Saturday at SLA2014 — from Michael Moore

Greetings from the shores of Coal Harbor, where I can see the pine forests of Stanley Park and some snowy caps on the majestic mountains just across the harbor.

I’m here in Vancouver for the SLA Annual Conference. Saturday’s schedule was filled with continuing education courses, meetings, and greeting people I haven’t seen for six months to a year. I attended “Preparing Information in Visual Formats,” a hands-on workshop where we were given datasets and insights on how to make them into charts, maps, and diagrams, and then we were let loose with the tools we had to practice. You can see more at www.PhelpsResearch.com.

Our Military Libraries Division Member ribbons joined the ranks of other ribbons available at the information desk. Right now I have ribbons for Division Cabinet, “Next Year’s Annual Conference Host” (go Boston!), the Engineering Division, and the Military Libraries Division, and I helped hand out the First Timer ribbons at the First Timers and Fellows reception. The ribbons make for good conversation starters as I meet new people.

As usual when I visit the West Coast, my sleep schedule is still shifted, so I’m still turning in early. This means I’ll be up early and ready to go for Monday and Tuesday’s MLD Breakfasts, as well as for the great sessions that start today.

You can find out more about what’s happening at the conference by following @slaconf and #sla2014 on Twitter, or going to the SLA 2014 Website to see other social media connections. I suspect the Twitter feed will be full of wonderful ideas and links, as well as lots of quips that inspire the attendees to share.

Sincerely,

Michael Moore, DMIL past chair

"Balance for Oil, Imbalance for LNG?" (recorded webcast) Center for Strategic & International Studies

https://www.csis.org/events/balance-oil-imbalance-lng

"The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host Fereidun Fesharaki, Founder and Chairman of FGE, for a presentation and discussion on the current state of global oil and gas markets, one balancing as the other appears to tip toward imbalance.

Oil markets are struggling to reach a balance, and with robust demand growth and continued OPEC cutbacks, a balance might be reached in the 2017/2018 period. LNG markets are facing a prolonged period of imbalance, perhaps through about 2023, before a balance can be reached. While many advocate new U.S. LNG projects, around 50% of the projects currently under construction have still not been sold to end users.

Dr. Fesharaki's work is recognized worldwide for pioneering oil and gas market analysis since the early 1980s. Born in Iran, he received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Surrey in England. He then completed a visiting fellowship at Harvard University’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies. He joined the East West Center in 1979, where he led the Energy program for two decades. FGE offices are spread around the world in 8 locations with heavy emphasis on Asia and the Middle East.
