- Why does the Dow always seem to fall short at the end of the day?
By John Crudele - Sunday Jun 25, 2017
Dear John: I have a question that has been bugging me for years about the US stock market, ever since the mid-1980s. Every time the Dow Jones industrial average approaches a new major threshold — such as 5K, 10K, 15K, 20K, etc. — by the end of the business day, the market stops just short...
- After dismal 2016, shale gas drillers begin to turn a corner
By MICHAEL RUBINKAM, Associated Press - Tuesday Jul 4, 2017
While the pace remains much slower than it was during the industry's boom years earlier this decade, when a drilling frenzy transformed sleepy towns and rural areas into economic hotbeds, 2017 has produced a modest rebound and hope of better days ahead in the Marcellus Shale, the nation's largest natural gas field.Drillers had been battered by several years of rock-bottom prices caused by oversupply and inadequate pipeline capacity.The low prices were good for consumers, and businesses and manufacturers that use gas, but they cost energy companies billions and prompted some of them to stop drilling altogether."Markedly better prices, thus more cash flow and more capability to invest," said Jack Bergeron, Southwestern's senior vice president of operations.EQT, Pennsylvania's busiest driller, recently positioned itself to become the nation's largest natural gas producer by announcing plans to acquire Rice Energy Inc. of Canonsburg, the state's No. 3 producer, for $6.7 billion.

- NASA finds signs of ancient 'Niagara Falls' of lava on Mars
By Miriam Kramer - Wednesday Jun 28, 2017
Sure, NASA has found signs of ancient water on Mars multiple times over the years, but now it's time to talk about something that's significantly more badass: molten Martian lava.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has taken photos of a part of the red planet that once played host to huge multi-tiered falls of lava that cascaded into a crater.
The images even show off the (now dried) circular flow of lava at the base of the falls, where the molten rock fanned outward on the crater's floor, NASA said.
"The lava flows and falls are distinct as they are rougher than the original features that are smooth and knobby," NASA said in a statement, referring to the features as the "Niagara Falls of Mars." Read more...More about Space, Nasa, Science, Mars, and Space Photos
