    Australia's Santos profit soars, flags China LNG sales push

    Santos Ltd, Australia's No. 2 independent gas producer, reported a more-than-fivefold rise in annual underlying profit on Wednesday, and flagged it may soon be in a position to revive its dividend and embark on growth. Two years of deep cost cuts and a rebound in oil and gas prices have helped Santos escape from a massive debt overhang and put it in a better position to fend off predators, like private equity-backed Harbour Energy. Chief Executive Kevin Gallagher said the company has had no further contact with Harbour since it rebuffed a A$9.5 billion offer last year, and noted that its share price was now above the tentative A$4.55 a share offer.

    An all-female fish species is challenging how scientists think about asexual reproduction

    For all intents and purposes, the Amazon molly should be on a crash course to extinction. Shockingly, it’s not only survived, but thrived. Over time, the all-female species of the Amazon molly, a freshwater fish native to the border region of Texas and Mexico, has figured out how to clone itself without any male DNA.…

    California’s drought may be returning

    One-third of California’s water supply in summer depends on how much snow falls in the Sierra Nevada mountains in the north of the state in winter.

    February the real test for Australia's shaky power supply

    Australia's strained power supply grid has largely withstood soaring temperatures this summer, but a year after the nation's biggest city, Sydney, was hit by blackouts, the real test comes this month. A state-wide blackout in South Australia in September 2016 sparked a conservative backlash over the use of solar and wind at the expense of dirtier but 'always-on' coal-fired generation and a scramble to add back-up power. South Australia, the country's most wind energy-dependent state, has installed the world's biggest lithium ion battery from Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) and diesel generators.

    India has a new caste for native English speakers only

    Sometime around 2012 or 2013, my daughters stopped speaking in Konkani, our mother tongue. It isn’t entirely clear what provoked it, perhaps it was a teacher at their Mumbai school encouraging students to speak more English at home. Or perhaps it was something else. It doesn’t matter. What did matter was that our home became…

    India’s farmers aren’t all the same, but government policies rarely reflect that

    Popular narratives paint the Indian farmer with a broad brush. The dominant image is that of a farmer—male, of course—gazing benevolently at his vast fields laden with lush crops–the image created by Bollywood. The truth, though, is that farmers in India are as diverse as the country itself. So are the challenges they face, depending…

    U.S. agriculture markets jump as frigid weather blankets farm belt

    Bone-chilling cold across the U.S. farm belt riled agriculture markets at midweek as concerns over crop damage and delayed export shipments sent prices of key food commodities soaring. Exporters along the Gulf Coast, the country's largest outlet for grains, scrambled for barge loads of corn and soybeans as two weeks of sub-freezing Midwest weather froze the Illinois River, a major grain barge shipping waterway. In the Plains, hard red winter wheat prices hit the highest in six weeks on worries that crops sustained freeze damage, while cattle prices hit seven-week peaks on concerns over slowed beef cattle production at feedlots.
