Pioneer Natural to Shuffle Exec Team in New Year as ‘Shale Model’ Transforms

Permian Basin explorer Pioneer Natural Resources Co. on Thursday announced a management shuffle, in part attributed to an evolving picture for Lower 48 oil and gas development.

Pioneer in Permian footprint

The Irving, TX-based independent also is tightening up its operations by laying off about 300 people combined from headquarters and Permian operations.

The management overhaul is taking effect Jan. 1 to support “continued goals” of delivering long-term shareholder value. Pioneer in August increased its 2020 oil production guidance by 2.5% to average 203,000-213,000 b/d, even after it curtailed about 7,000 b/d net in 2Q2020. At the time, the company said it would keep about 6,000 b/d shut-in for the foreseeable future because of low oil prices.

CEO Scott Sheffield, who helped build Pioneer into a powerhouse Lower 48 operator, initially served from 1997-2016 and then took the helm again last year. 

“When I returned as CEO in 2019 it was clear the shale

Christopher John Rogers’s SS21 Show Made Natural Beauty Look Glam

Ever since his New York Fashion Week debut, Christopher John Rogers has turned his shows into one of the most anticipated events during fashion month. And while the coronavirus pandemic has changed what fashion week looks like, CJR still managed to put on quite the show on October 6, thanks to the CFDA’s Runway 360. 

The clothes shown on the platform were reminiscent of many of his past collections. Pieces were colorful, daring, and eye-catching. Inspired by happiness, this collection sparked pure joy. To achieve said joy, which is very much needed these days, Christopher chose life itself as his standpoint. In particular: Childhood and its seemingly limitless playfulness. 

The designer envisioned little kids drawing with crayons and markers, reminiscing about the starter pack of crayons we used to get before starting school. Think Crayola, but make it fashion! “Something as immense and formidable as the sun can be reduced

How To Reduce Bias Where Research Says Black Women’s Natural Hair Impacts Interview Opportunities

Many studies explore how diversity in the workplace can create great opportunities for multiple viewpoints to be shared in ways that can strengthen company decision making from a holistic viewpoint. However, a recent research study conducted by Fuqua School of Business at Duke University suggests that there is evidence recommending that Black women with natural hairstyles are perceived as less professional than Black women with straightened hair. This evidence illuminates that discrimination against natural Black hairstyles is still prevalent in the workplace.

To determine if bias against natural haired Black women still exists in the workplace, the researchers recruited participants from various diasporas and asked them to role play as job recruiters screening candidates for employment. As participants role played, they were provided profiles of Black and White women job candidates and asked to rate various factors including their professionalism, competence and more. In the professionalism and competence categories,

Jordin Sparks Talks Hair, Natural Beauty, & We Stan For Her

Jordin Sparks’s relationship with beauty — specifically with her naturally curly hair — is complicated. Like so many of us with textured hair, the singer and American Idol alum didn’t learn to appreciate her curls until she was well into adulthood: “It took me forever to really, truly enjoy my hair,” she told POPSUGAR. “I came to appreciate it in my 20s. I was like ‘Wow, I really have the best of both worlds. My hair can be free and bouncy and curly if I want it to be, but on the other hand, I can straighten it and it can be sleek.'”

Learning to accept her natural beauty isn’t so different of an experience than those of the thousands of other people, so her participation in Barefoot Wine’s newly-premiered web series, We Stan For Her, is more than fitting. In the four-part series that explores the Black experience

Pig Trail well worth rediscovering to see state’s natural beauty

FAYETTEVILLE — Back in the day, driving the Pig Trail with its steep and serpentine stretches was a rite of passage for faithful fans heading from points south to Razorbacks football games in Fayetteville.

Then Interstate 540 (now I-49) with its Bobby Hopper tunnel opened in the late 1990s, providing a much smoother and faster trip for the “Woo Pig Sooey” throngs. That left the older roller-coaster route on Arkansas 23 and 16 as something of a fondly remembered backwater.

That’s a shame, because the drive remains an alluring one — especially the 19 miles formally designated as Pig Trail Scenic Byway. Running from the southern edge of Ozark National Forest north to a crossroads at Brashears, the byway is most photogenic in the fall. That’s when it becomes one of Arkansas’ prime showcases
