Part One: Will China's Coalbed Methane Projects Make a New Energy Billionaire?

Even the enemies of Randeep S. Grewal admire his business savvy. Few might be surprised if the CEO of Green Dragon shows up some day on the Forbes magazine list of billionaires. His company's recent share offering on the London Stock Exchange's AIM, commencing with a market capitalization of US$525 million, was quite the bold stroke, raising a few eyebrows. Green Dragon placed a bit more than 4.5 million shares, less than 5 percent of the company's outstanding shares, to raise $25 million. Randeep Grewal kept the remaining 95.2 percent of Green Dragon for himself.Upon the company's admission to the AIM market Grewal remarked, "2007 promises to be a landmark year for CBM and its contribution to the Chinese energy supply...This listing is an important and timely milestone in our growth driven strategy." The last time Grewal stooped to deal with the minor annoyances of the capital markets, he personally bought up all the shares of Greka Energy Corp, then trading on the NASDAQ. … [Read more...]

Crisis Intervention – A Critique

Crisis events are not only associated with adverse mental health conditions for our students, but also with significant learning difficulties. As educators, it is important for us to know what we can do immediately following a crisis involving our students in order to prevent the traumatization that contributes to these negative outcomes. Crisis intervention in schools today is still in its infancy. No single model has been adopted because of the lack of scientific research indicating a reason to do so. We simply do not yet know what works best with students in schools. We grapple with what will work most effectively, as we continue to rely on cognitive approaches or so-called "talking cures" that ignore the physiology of trauma. Recent scientific research has not supported the use of what is still a widely adopted crisis intervention model: Jeffrey T. Mitchell's model of critical-incident stress debriefing (CISD). Several studies have found Mitchell's model … [Read more...]

Living With the Moto Guzzi California Vintage

A Week with the Moto Guzzi California Vintage Street Cred without the "wannabe" Moto Guzzi has more "cruiser street cred" than most people give it credit for. They've been around continuously since 1921; longer than anyone but Harley Davidson. But for Harley Davidson, Guzzi's been building cruisers longer than anyone els - their first cruiser in the incarnation you see above coming out in 1967 with the V700. Guzzi has always liked building "big" bikes, but we must adjust scale. Italy, which was Guzzi's biggest market for most of it's life, had production street bikes with less than 100cc for decades - a bike above 300cc was considered "big".Guzzi was at the top of the heap early on, with production 500cc bikes that were reliable and sporting. The 500cc Falcone of the 50s is an excellent example of this, a bike with incredible reliability, to the point where an American Guzzi Club member is an original owner of two, both ridden on close to a daily basis for more than 50 years! Guzzi … [Read more...]
