And there she was, in her lowest of moments, suggesting the question that has always been the source of Veeps narrative momentum: Could Selina Meyer, yet again, stage a comeback? Season 6 premieres with a definitive answer: nope. Not for now, anyway. Omaha is set exactly one year after Selinas presidential loss, and it finds President Meyer, who is now more specifically ex-President Meyer, dealing with the assorted vagaries of her ex-ness. Meyer has spent the intervening year, we soon learn, at an institunono, she repeatedly interrupts those who tell the truth, at a spa. She has a book deal, in the grand tradition of American ex-presidents, but is six months behind in delivering a draft to her editor. She has established the Meyer Fund, which is dedicated to adult literacy (and also, Meyer ad-libs during a live TV interview, to AIDS). The Meyer Fund is run by Marjorie, who was once on Selinas Secret Service detail and is now her daughters girlfriend; the fund is housed in an office in the South Bronx that is gorgeous but, Meyer feels, decidedly beneath her. (I mean, seriously, this is the worst place theyve ever stuffed an ex-presidentand Im including JFKs coffin.) Here are a bunch of incompetent people who are living, finally, with the ramifications of their incompetence. Its a situation that is not, by any objective standards, desperate: Meyer is still young, still healthy, still rich, still famous. Omaha, though, is an exploration of relativity, and Selina Meyer, being who and what she is, repeatedly reads her own situation as a broad insult composed of many minor ones: People are constantly forgetting that Meyer was the first woman president.

In a news release , the company said it rarely discusses full-year guidance on a quarterly basis, but “weaker-than-expected first-quarter results will reduce the likelihood of achieving” a profit of $140 million to $190 million that the company expected when it filed its fourth-quarter and full-year guidance expectations on Feb. 1. The company’s new 2017 guidance predicts a full-year profit of $90 million to $160 million, a shortfall of at least $30 million from the February full-year guidance. The company blamed unfavorable market conditions leading to soft retail fuel volumes and lackluster results from its product supply and wholesale activities. “These market factors include, but are not limited to, record-high gasoline inventories, subdued retail demand and discounted pipeline space volumes,” the news release said. The company, which operates about 1,400 gasoline and convenience locations in 26 states, said it expects market fundamentals to return to a “more normalized state” later in the year, and pointed out that previous first quarters have been among Murphy USA’s worst since the company was spun off from Murphy Oil Corp. in 2013, even in years when profits substantially rebounded. “The first quarter is typically a period of lower earnings for the company, but a variety of market conditions along with regulatory and political events have converged that will result in short-term underperformance,” said President and CEO Andrew Clyde. “In our history, we have weathered a wide variety of challenging market conditions, which eventually experience mean reversion and we expect that this year will be no different. “While we don’t expect discussions around guidance on a quarterly basis going forward, we are prudently level-setting expectations to maintain transparency with investors and affirm our commitment to long-term value creation for shareholders.” Separately, the company announced that Daryl Schofield will join the company as executive vice president of fuels, effective May 3. Schofield will oversee the entire fuels value chain and fuels organization for Murphy USA, the company said. http://wyatthugheslist.universitypunjabi.org/2017/04/19/a-helpful-breakdown-of-locating-important-criteria-for-guidance-for-curriculum-vitae/Schofield will join the company from Tesoro Corp. of San Antonio, Texas, where he was senior vice president of commercial business. Murphy USA’s annual stockholders’ meeting is scheduled at 1:30 p.m.
