Econintersect: Here are some of the headlines we found to help you start your day. For more headlines see our afternoon feature for GEI members, What We Read Today, which has many more headlines and a number of article discussions to keep you abreast of what we have found interesting.
Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary 'reading list' which will include very brief summaries (and sometimes longer ones) of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for 'reading list' items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number included.
This feature is published every day late afternoon New York time. For early morning review of headlines see "The Early Bird" published every day in the early am at GEI News (membership not required for access to "The Early Bird".).

NOAA issues Seasonal Outlook which confirms some of the information we have been presenting in the GEI Weekly Weather and Climate Report. For examples, this El Nino is now dead, the strength of the forecasted La Nina this coming winter may have been overestimated by some of the models, and something interesting is taking place in the North Atlantic. If you want to have bragging rights with your friends, it is a good idea to make this column part of your Tuesday reading material. If you are a sleep deprived person, it is generally available on the GEI website at about Midnight East Coast Time Monday night.
