Brent crude up $1 to over $60.50 as global markets firm

An oil well is seen near DenverBy Henning Gloystein SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Brent crude oil prices rose more than a dollar to above $60.50 a barrel on Tuesday, tracking firmer Asian markets, but analysts warned the market remained oversupplied. Most Asian stock markets edged up on Tuesday, bolstered by a record day on Wall Street, while a resurgent yen helped knock the U.S. dollar index off an 11-year high, making commodities priced in the greenback slightly cheaper for holders of other currencies. A drop in U.S. rig counts is also boosting oil prices, analysts said. "Brent crude prices (are) attempting to rally on rapid week-on-week reduction in U.S. … rig count," Morgan Stanley said on in a note on Tuesday.


From bond coupons to imports, strong dollar hurts Senegal, says President

Senegal's President Macky Sall delivers a speech during the Franco-African Forum at the Bercy Finance Ministry in ParisBy Diadie Ba ZIGUINCHOR, Senegal (Reuters) – Senegal's President Macky Sall said on Monday that the strong U.S. dollar posed risks to the west African country's economy, which has already been hit by a drop in tourism due to the Ebola virus. Sall said the trade imbalance highlighted the need for countries in West Africa to move up the value chain to produce higher quality goods and not just rely on exporting raw materials to fuel industries in China or the West. "We should promote in Africa the transformation of our raw industrial, mineral or natural resources," he said. "Africans should put more added-value into their raw resources, it brings more (economic) gains."  Senegal had to pay an extra $127,440 on a coupon payment for its 2024 Eurobond earlier this month due to the dollar rising in value as Senegal cleared a technical error that delayed the payment.

How many times have you been watching an awards show, your favorite television show, or just perusing your favorite celebrities’ Instagram and wanted to know what exactly they were wearing ? A new website aims to connect you to your most beloved superstar’s style in a unique and innovative way.

LookLive saves you the tediousness of grueling Google searches (that look like “Kanye blue shirt Grammy’s”) that more likely than not will only end in frustration. The site uses artificial intelligence to detail the items that make up the featured celebrity’s outfit piece-by-piece — whether that is Kerry Washington in an episode of ScandalKanye West at the Grammy’s or Jennifer Lopez on Instagram. Not only does LookLive provide users with exact clothing items but also offers similar and bargain items to help them attain the look of the world’s most respected tastemakers.

LookLike also keeps continuity in the forefront of the experience. “Once we cover a TV show, or we cover a celebrity, we’re covering all of their content, not necessarily cherry-picking our favorite images,” CEO Chris Archer told Quartz“If Beyoncé is photographed tomorrow, then we’re covering Beyoncé.”

That’s a pretty weighty commitment to make with only two weeks after its creation, but they’ve reportedly seen 30% of visitors returning on a daily basis — so they’re off to a good start. That’s due to their commitment to covering popular shows like “Modern Family, Scandal, and Empire” and monitoring paparazzi shots as they happen, LookLive is sure to be the next big fashion website in coming years.
