OPEC agrees on oil output cut

Oil prices are surging after the world’s largest oil cartel agreed to limit production. OPEC members have been trying to bridge their differences on a way to alleviate a price slump. It’s their first such deal since 2008, when demand was shrinking due to the global economic slowdown. Members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries are holding an informal meeting in Algeria. That’s where they decided to limit output to between 32.5 and 33 million barrels a day. How much each country will produce will be decided at the next formal OPEC meeting in November.

Saudi Arabia, Russia, and other major oil producers discussed a possible freeze of production levels in April, but failed to reach an agreement. And in June, Saudi Arabia and Iran failed to narrow their differences on a collective output quota, or production control. Crude oil prices spiked in New York Wednesday, following reports of the OPEC agreement. The benchmark WTI futures temporarily rose to the 47-dollar level. That’s up more than six percent from the figure the previous day.

In addition to this week, we have also asked this committee to coordinate with key non-OPEC countries in order to have collective meeting, collective agreement, so that the process of rebalancing could be accelerated.

Survey suggests foreign visitors find Japanese oral hygiene lacking

An online survey conducted by the Oral Protect Consortium found 72% of foreigners had been “disappointed” by Japanese breath. 72% also answered that they thought Japanese should be more meticulous* about oral hygiene. However, the survey also found that the majority of Japanese “attend to oral hygiene” at least twice a day.
