🧵 #EC22 Breakout session

Video Conferencing Room Interoperability: What are the Paths Forward?

Moderator @JimBurton asks the audience how many people in the room wish their companies could figure this out.

A massive show of hands 🖐🏽
@JimBurton Jim described a company he spoke with recently who had different floors of their buildings set up for Zoom, Teams, etc. There has to be a better way
Jim Kelly - @GeekInAwe outlined different methodoligies for interop.

1) The dreaded corporate mandate (just pick one platform!)

2) BYOD - bring your own device. let people bring their laptops to the room and use whatever platform they need. Lots of challenges here

The prequel to how the #EC tricked member states, MEPs and EU citizens..

#PfizerLeak Image
To understand what member states got dragged into these horrible agreements, let's go back to the agreement between the commission & member states on producing vaccines, annexed to EC decision C(2020) 4192 from the 18th of June 2020.…

#PfizerLeak Image
In a typical European Commission style, the APAs were "approved for signature on behalf and in the name of the participating Member States by a separate individual Commission decision."

Or in other words - the member states are rubber stamps to the EC decisions.

In the light of recent reports on EVMs during #AssemblyElections2021, we are reposting The Quint's extensive coverage on EVM-VVPAT vulnerabilities from our archives.
Thread ⬇️
Repost | An expert committee report recommended EC to redesign #EVMs and facilitate audit of EVM-VVPAT votes to address concerns related to voting system.
@poonamjourno detailed in Jan 2021.
Repost | "#EC should count 100% #VVPAT slips. Time to count VVPAT slips is equal to the time it takes to count #EVMs," former Chief Election Commissioner, SY Quraishi told @poonamjourno in this Dec 2020 interview.

#Demystifying #EIANotification Process (Cont)
Today we cover d final bit of d #Process namely
#SCHEDULE which lists d #projects/activities for which #Prior #EC is mandatory.

#EIA1994 carried a list of 32 projects / activities that required environmental clearance (EC) from+
d Central government. An exception was made in case of few kinds of Thermal power projects (eg captive power projects) which could seek EC from d respective State governments.

In #EIA2006 Thirty nine (39) projects or processes were listed in d #Schedule to d Notification.
These were categorized into following 8 different categories. Each was further sub divided into several others. A note on “#General” Conditions was appended to d #Schedule.
1.Mining, extraction of natural resources & power generation

#Demystifying #EIANotification Part III (Cont)

Today we deal with #Post EC #Monitoring.

All #Prior #Environment #Clearance (EC) letters to projects carry #Conditions that a #Project #Proponent (PP) is required to fulfill during
a) Construction phase
b) Operation phase
c) Post operation phase (especially in cases of mining projects)

It is extremely important that these conditions are not only available in public domain but that public is actively involved in the #Monitoring thereof.

#EIA2006 and #DraftEIA2020 provide that
In respect of Category ‘A’ project, it shall be mandatory for the #PP to make public the #EC granted for their project along with d conditions and safeguards at their cost by prominently advertising it at least in two local newspapers of d district or State where d project+

1/ Second thread on Apple.

Tl;dr: #Apple deserved to win. The #EC should reform, not abandon, its approach to tax state aid enforcement.
2/ Apple was a huge upset and a major blow to Commission’s plan to use state aid to combat tax avoidance. I have argued for years that the EC’s legal reasoning in these cases is deficient, so of course I’m glad Apple won. But I’m still disappointed, you’ll see why.
3/ The most important legal issue: how to allocate profits to the Irish branches of the stateless subs. If “allocation by exclusion” was okay, then Ireland would get $14B in tax. If not, Apple would keep it tax (and pay tax to the US at low rates on a slow schedule).

Today we deal with #Appraisal.
#Expert appraisal of a #ProjectProposal by d #Competent Authority (CA) to determine whether a Project deserves to b granted/rejected an #EnvironmentClearance (EC) is essence of #EIANotification.
The @moefcc as d CA was conscious of d fact since #EIA1994 that it wud in-house not possess necessary expertise to assess d different kinds of #projectproposals that come its way & hence provided that:

"The reports submitted with d application shall be evaluated+

#Demystefying #EIANotification
Today we consider the very 'soul' of d legal instrument called #EIANotification namely d #EIA #Report
An EIA Report is meant to be a thorough scientific document that a professional agency prepares after detailed investigations+
of d likely environmental impacts that d planned project / activity is anticipated to hv at d #site in #question.

Its (#EIA #report) quality wud depend on:
a) Competence of d agency involved
b) Independence of d agency
c) Transparency & inclusive nature of d exercise
The reality of an #EIA #report is that:

Right from #EIA1994Notification to #EIA2006 & now #DraftEIA2020 d #notification provides that it is d #ProjectProponent (PP) that shall #select & #commission the #EIAconsultant at its own cost & terms.

This provision alone+
