    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The bitter cold temperatures can cause issues for car batteries. Bobby and Steve’s Auto World in downtown Minneapolis told WCCO Sunday was a really busy one. They received dozens of calls for jump-starts and tows as cars struggled to get going. Colton Sin at Bobby and Steve’s shared some advice on what to do before you drive off. (credit: CBS) “Letting your vehicle warm up in the morning gives that motor time to get the oil worked through the motor,” Sin said. “That cold start is really hard on motors, and by jumping in and just taking off right away, it doesn’t give that engine time to get that oil through right away, and that can be really detrimental to the engine.” AAA also shared some reminders: Have your battery and charging system tested by a trained technician. That’s especially important if your vehicle’s battery is...

Load Error Exxon assured investors of its financial health in a world of $50-a-barrel oil and promised that if crude were to dip to $45 it would sacrifice spending in the name of dividends. The Western world’s largest oil explorer has so far avoided the sort of payout cuts adopted by rivals Royal Dutch Shell Plc and BP Plc. The dividend pledge comes on the heels of a $19.3-billion writedown of U.S. natural gas and other assets, and the lowest...

    President Trump's allies launched a string of attacks on Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s energy stance and other policies on Friday, saying the final debate offered them reams of tape to turn into adverts and hit lines. The Trump campaign wasted no time, releasing a TV hit in Pennsylvania featuring Biden’s comments saying he would “transition” from the oil industry, while the Trump-supporting super PAC America First Action said it was going up with five 30-second videos across the nation in a $10 million buy. Republican strategists praised Trump’s performance in Thursday’s debate, saying his more restrained approach let Biden do more talking than in their first clash. And it was a welcome chance to get the former vice president out of his basement and on to the record in a campaign marked largely by his absence, said American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp. “Joe Biden has been able to get...

    By JOHN FLESHER, AP Environmental Writer TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Enbridge said Wednesday it will fully resume operation of a Michigan Great Lakes oil pipeline after a partial shutdown this summer because of damage to a support structure. Circuit Judge James Jamo signed an order allowing the Canadian company to restore the flow through one of its Line 5 pipes beneath the Straits of Mackinac, which connects Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. The line carries oil and liquids used in propane between Superior, Wisconsin, and Sarnia, Ontario, passing through parts of Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas. A 4-mile-long (6.4-kilometers-long) segment divides into two pipes that cross the straits. Enbridge reported in June that an anchor supporting the underwater section’s eastern leg had been bent and scraped, although the pipe itself was unharmed. An investigation concluded that a vessel — possibly belonging to one of Enbridge's contractors — might have...

    Ludmila VinogradoffCaracas Updated: 09/01/2020 02: 02h Save There are Cubans even in the soup in Venezuela and their unmistakable Caribbean accent is already heard even in the high and low leaders of the Nicolás Maduro regime. Its presence is measured in figures: some 220,000 Cubans have been sent to the country throughout these 21 years of Chavismo, denounces Julio Borges, Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Relations of the interim government. When the then president Hugo Chavez announced that Venezuela was “going towards the sea of ​​happiness in Cuba”, no one believed it possible, but when Fidel Castro established a bridge between Caracas and Havana and the Barinese commander announced that “the two countries were one nation” then the Venezuelans were they realized that they were serious. The National Assembly led by interim president Juan Guaidó has carried out several investigations into the internal and external...

In a widely anticipated move Thursday, the Environmental Protection Agency yet again advanced President Donald Trump's deregulatory agenda by weakening rules on oil and gas companies' emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane that were put in place by the Obama administration. Following reports that the "sickening" policy change would come by the end of this week, former coal lobbyist and current EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler in Pittsburgh formally announced two final rules removing the "burdensome and ineffective regulations" on the oil and gas industry. : "This decision is mind-bogglingly stupid and destructive," declared Liz Jones, an attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity.

    A U.S. military official on Thursday accused the Iranian navy of boarding a Liberian-flagged oil tanker near the strategic Strait of Hormuz as tensions between Tehran and Washington continue to climb. The U.S. military’s Central Command published a black-and-white video showing what appeared to be special forces fast-roping down from a helicopter onto the MT Wila, whose last position appeared to be off the eastern coast of the United Arab Emirates near the city of Khorfakkan, AP reports. The Iranian navy held the vessel for some five hours before releasing it Wednesday, said a U.S. military official who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss details not yet made public. The Wila made no distress calls before, during and after the seizure, the official said. The Iranian helicopter involved appeared to be a Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King, which only Iran’s navy operates and has been using...

    Mary Elizabeth Williams August 8, 2020 9:30PM (UTC) I judge cookbooks the same way I judge meals: by the desserts. However gloriously crunchy, salty, savory, spicy and cheesy all the other the content may be, if there isn't something resembling cake at the end, I become very crabby. So when a few years ago I received the first cookbook from America's sweetheart, Chrissy Teigen, I gasped when it abruptly ended with a recipe for stuffed chicken breasts. As Teigen explains in the introduction to "Cravings," she wanted her book to have everything — "except dessert." This to me is like ending a rom-com before someone runs to the airport to declare their love in front of a TSA agent. : But something changed along the way to Teigen's second cookbook, "Cravings: Hungry for More." This time around, the mother of two includes a modest but impressive chapter devoted to...

    Canela López/Insider Dr. Heidi Waldorf, a cosmetic dermatologist, reviewed my skincare routine and told my everything I'm doing wrong.  My cleansing and moisturizing don't need to change. My rosehip face oil and witch hazel toner are a waste of money and not doing much for my skin. Waldorf recommended adding in a retinoid and finding a new sunscreen. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. I've never really thought I had "good" skin, the kind you see in the "after" photos on skincare commercials. My skin is on the oilier side, and I get some hormonal acne on my jawline. But, for the most part, I've come to the conclusion that my skin is fine.  I also started testosterone this week — a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) used to treat gender dysphoria in trans and nonbinary people. I'm ecstatic, but not about possibly going through a second puberty,...
    The multi-billion dollar Dakota Access Pipeline can continue pumping oil for the time being, a federal court ruled Tuesday. The U.S. Appeals Court’s ruling temporarily halts a lower court’s July 6 decision to shut down the project and order the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct a rigorous environmental review of the pipeline. Local tribes in North Dakota and other activists have long opposed the $3.8 billion line, claiming that it poisons drinking water. The ruling allows oil to continue coursing through the DAPL, which runs from North Dakota through the Midwest and on to Gulf Coast refineries. Nearly 600,000 barrels of oil flow through the project daily, making it a significant part of North Dakota’s economy. Energy Transfer, the company behind the project, would lose as much as $3.5 million every day the pipeline is offline and roughly $1.4 billion if the line is permanently shut down throughout 2021, Dakota...
              TRAVERSE CITY, Michigan (AP) — A Michigan judge Wednesday allowed Enbridge to resume pumping oil through a Midwestern pipeline, nearly a week after shutting it down because of damage to a structure that anchors a section of the line running through a Great Lakes channel. Enbridge’s Line 5 moves crude oil and liquids used in propane from Superior, Wisconsin, to Sarnia, Ontario, passing through parts of Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas. A four-mile-long (6.4-kilometers-long) segment divides into two pipes that cross the bottom of the Straits of Mackinac, which connects Lakes Huron and Michigan. Circuit Judge James Jamo granted a request from state Attorney General Dana Nessel to close the line June 25 after Enbridge, the Canadian company that operates it, reported that an inspection had found damage to an anchor supporting the underwater section’s eastern line.
