While Britain celebrates the Diamond Jubilee, Europe’s economic crisis deepens. So Ovi for the month June goes finance with an oil prices site and a Euro blog.

Site of the month: Oil Price

Oil Price is one of the leading energy news sites online. The site has news and opinion on all fossil fuels covering crude oil, natural gas and coal. 50% of our content is also focused on alternative energy and the environment where we cover solar energy, wind power, and all other clean energy technologies. The site also contains crude oil price charts and crude oil consumption tables. Our crude oil price charts cover three month periods and our energy tables cover crude oil production and crude oil consumption alongside coal, natural gas, nuclear power and all other major energy sub-sectors.

We are in the process of designing new oil price charts - which will enable visitors to see oil prices for both WTI crude oil and Brent crude oil in more detail. Oil Price reports can be found on Marketwatch, The Street, Huffington Post, Roubini, USA Today and hundreds of other top news publications. Our analysis of oil price movements and oil price forecasts are published on a weekly basis and can be found in the relevant categories on the site.

Blog of the month: Euro Watch

Who am I? That is a good question. And one I think more people should ask themselves more often. Officially I am currently fifty nine, I live in Barcelona and I have three children - a boy (Morgan) and two girls (Sara and Andrea). If I were pinned down in a corner and had for once to say what I was - as opposed to who I am - I suppose I would say I was an 'economist', although this is a destiny that most of the people who know me well would say I had spent the better part of my life trying to avoid. Pinning it down even further I would probably say I was a macroeconomist (since I have to say that microeconomics has always bored me - almost to tears, and indeed almost to the point of failing my first degree - which is curious since I notice that the vast majority of popular weblogs deal precisely with micro topics. Evidently either most people have understood something which I have failed to grasp, or the opposite is the case. Filling-in that little box which asks "how would you describe yourself (maximum 50 words)" has always being something of a problem for me. In fact I have the feeling that as soon as someone tries to put a label on me I am already struggling loose trying to escape from it. Perhaps the best commendation to my work was made by my old school headmaster who, in one of those endless termly reports, got right to the heart of things: 'is he trying to prove that any fool can miss a bus?' He was definitely right; I seem to have spent the best part of half a century becoming a specialist in missing busses.

To add insult to injury, I was once described by my Departmental Professor as a 'thief' for accepting my doctoral grant while continuing to spend my time reading the books and attending the courses that I chose to read and that I chose to attend, the ones that I thought were interesting. In a way I am still doing this, reading what interests me, and writing about what attracts my attention. I think I suffer from what was once called 'an excess of curiosity', the kind that kills cats, you know. The scholastics even regarded this as the nearest thing to an intellectual sin. Philosophy is born of wonder, but an excess of it was thought to be fatal. I do take some consolation, however, in the thought that in an age where internet connectivity puts the generalist right back in business, and big-time, then the optimal level of healthy curiosity per cubic centimetre of neuronal mass may have just risen, and excessive curiosity might now not be the 'vice' it was once thought to be.

At least, this is how I square things with myself.
