#Australia: Port of Newcastle, half-owned by the #Chinese for another 91 YEARS, need to take it back

Port of Darwin & Port of Newcastle were both leased to Chinese companies. Both are key strategic assets for exports including natural gas, oil & coal.
dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9…
2) Pressure is mounting on the federal government to take back key national assets from Chinese control amid fears the communist superpower could disrupt our crucial infrastructure using advanced cyber attacks.
3) The Port of Newcastle, the world's biggest coal port, was handed over to a Chinese-backed consortium for 98 years for $1.75 billion when Mike Baird was NSW Premier in 2014.

#China’s soft power has ‘collapsed globally’ due to ‘anger and hysteria’

“The contrast between #Australian calmness and #Beijing hysteria is actually one of the reasons further coercion of #Australia is affecting China’s soft power globally.

🤓@ScottMorrisonMP's fossil gas announcement today is a poke in the eye for @ClimateEnvoy and @POTUS.

morrison claims south australia needs the gas for cheap, reliable power.

let's take a little look at SA's use of gas for power generation… 🧵

theguardian.com/australia-news…
over the past 12 months fossil gas provided 37% of south australia's electricity — a higher proportion than any other state.

(SA completely phased out all coal in 2016 and doesn't have any significant hydro resources.)
if we zoom out to the last 2 decades, we can see the important but *reducing* role gas has played in SA's generation mix.

Al principio mi CV no poseía experiencia en educación Superior así que opté por aplicar a todas las universidades del Ecuador que me acepten. Al final fue Machala quién me hizo parte de la Academia y aunque viví un semestre allá ya tenía la experiencia para concursar
El plan A era quedarme más tiempo en Machala aunque ellos no me daban la estabilidad porque solo me contrataron temporalmente seguía viviendo allá pero dejé de tener una remuneración y mis ahorros se iban acabando

#Telcoin represents a look at the future of #fintech, #crypto, and the way people view efficiency, security and convenience with regard to many aspects of managing their money and investments.
Sadly, many newcomers to $TEL have little vision, depth of understanding, or patience when it comes to what #Telcoin has been building... and what's coming next.

These are my predictions for those needing perspective and patience.

#Thread about #Kangaroos #Australia #animals #USA #trade #AnimalsMatterAF #Shoes #Nike #fashionstyle :

California banned the import of kangaroo products in 1971. Now politicians from both camps want to extend the ban to the whole of the USA.

nzz.ch/pro-global/usa…
However, the commercially hunted kangaroos are not critically endangered species.
However, it is difficult to monitor the ban. The corresponding police unit is already fully occupied with monitoring the illegal trade in ivory and other exotic animals.
Eating kangaroo meat is certainly not for everyone, and the meat is an absolute niche product.

If U are looking for #opportunities in d USA & Canada, U will need to read this. I've posted many #Scholarships recently for #MSc & #PhD for youths. U are unable to apply cos of #GRE. I'll share why GRE & what U need to know @wakawaka_doctor @Oludeewon @olumuyiwaayo @AishaYesufu
What is GRE General Test?
This test was created by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to evaluate academic readiness of the individual for grad. school. Majority of grad. schools in Canada and USA, require this test as a part of the prerequisites to gain admission.@MrParamode
You CAN’T just wake up & decide to write GRE the next day. It takes a lot of effort & hard work.U have to follow processes, ensure U invest time & resources to achieve ur goal. In simple terms, GRE is more than cramming vocabulary words or skimming through basic mathematics.

1/23. Does #Australia know what it is doing with vaccines?

The answer is NO.

#covid19 #covid19Aus #vaccines #Pfizer #AstraZeneca Image
2/23. Most countries around the world are in a hurry to vaccinate to reduce the death toll of #COVID19 and to slow down its spread.

#Australia is already at #ZeroCovid so what is it doing?
3/23. The first people they vaccinated were quarantine workers because they are most likely to become infected.

A problem with this is that a vaccinated person can still contract Covid19 (but hopefully not become seriously ill) and can still transmit the virus onto someone else.
