    Full Title: Announced Closure of Hess Corp.'s Port Reading Refinery Not Seen Having Major Impact on Gasoline Markets This Week In Petroleum On January 28, Hess Corp. announced plans to close its Port Reading, New Jersey, refinery by the end of February. Port Reading further processes feedstocks produced by other refineries. Futures prices for reformulated blendstock for oxygenate blending (RBOB) rallied on the news, as markets considered the impact the closure would have on gasoline supply to the Northeast (PADDs 1A and 1B) in the coming months. Given the refinery's location in New York Harbor, an actively traded physical market,...

    This story went mostly under the radar, but it will have some implications for many people on the east coast and for the industry in general further down the line. Without much fanfare, Hess recently announced that they were selling off their last commercial refinery, located in New Jersey. Their stated reasons are clear enough, but there’s a bit more to the story. Hess Corp.’s Port Reading, N.J., refinery—the company’s first and last such facility—will close its doors at the end of next month as the company gets out of the refining business to focus on more-profitable exploration and production...

    Explanation: The largest of its kind, the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) II telescope stands in the foreground of this photo. Tilted horizontally it reflects the inverted landscape of the Namibian desert in a segmented mirror 24 meters wide and 32 meters tall, equal in area to two tennis courts. Now beginning an exploration of the Universe at extreme energies, H.E.S.S. II saw first light on July 26. Most ground-based telescopes with lenses and mirrors are hindered by the Earth's nurturing, protective atmosphere that blurs images and scatters and absorbs light. But the H.E.S.S. II telescope is a cherenkov telescope,...

    BERLIN The bones of Adolf Hitler's deputy, Rudolf Hess, have been removed from their grave in a small Bavarian town that had become a pilgrimage site for neo-Nazis. Before dawn Wednesday, workers exhumed Hess's bones from the grave in the Wunsiedel cemetery, then cremated the remains and scattered them secretly in a lake, whose name and location are not being divulged, cemetery administrator Andreas Fabel told The Associated Press.

    MI5 uncovered a secret Polish plot to assassinate Rudolf Hess after his landing by parachute in Scotland during the Second World War, according to newly disclosed evidence. The arrival of Hitlers deputy near the Duke of Hamiltons Lanarkshire estate in 1941 raised the question of whether British intelligence or members of the aristocracy were trying to broker a secret peace deal with the Nazis. Although such conspiracy theories subsequently proved unfounded, some British-based Polish soldiers feared Hesss arrival showed their country was being sold down the river. After Germanys invasion of Poland in 1939, many soldiers escaped to Britain and...

    It was one of the most bizarre episodes of the Second World War. When Hitlers deputy, Rudolf Hess, landed by parachute in 1941 near the estate of the Duke of Hamilton in Lanarkshire, it raised the question of whether British intelligence or members of the aristocracy were trying to broker a secret peace deal with the Nazis. But recently declassified MI5 files shed more light on Hesss mysterious flight to Scotland, and finally prove the conspiracy theories to be unfounded, according to the dukes son, Lord James Douglas-Hamilton, the Lothians MSP. The Conservative peer said yesterday that the new MI5...

The march in Wunsiedel was met by several hundred counter-demonstrators, who at one point halted it by staging a sit-down blockade. Although no clashes were reported, police said they detained 110 people -74 of them Nazis. Marchers were detained for displaying outlawed Nazi symbols and carrying weapons or pepper spray, police spokeswoman Beate Weiss said. Some 1,000 officers were...
