Crude oil and fuel products led from the front as the sector recovered from the recent correction. The OPEC+ meeting saw a strong attack from the Saudi oil minister on members cheating on quotas and ......read more

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, August 09, 2020: Birds, particularly parrots are well known to be sensitive to environmental toxins, such as certain metals, chemical cleaners, and overheated plastic-coated cookware.
