"With the next generation of satellites – built from #5G architecture – they will integrate with networks to manage connectivity to cars, vessels, airplanes and other #IoT devices in remote and rural areas."

1/Reflecting on the interview w/@CathMckenna on @OttawaMorning on Fri w/@RobynBresnahan about the importance of getting back on track with significant investment into #infrastructure spending. I’d like to encourage a #genderlens & propose we also invest in our #careinfrastructure
2/According to Minister @cathmckenna’s mandate letter, and indeed all Minister’s mandate letters, it states, “You will apply Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) in the decisions that you make.” pm.gc.ca/en/mandate-let…
3/Infrastructure spending that focuses on ‘shovel ready’ projects (the Minister’s words) in the construction & trades sectors disproportionately ends up supporting men’s jobs, as men dominate these sectors. If this is our primary focus, it will have a #genderinequity effect.

THIS IS YOUR FUTURE
Since I've not been paid or replied to, I am declassifying. One of the biggest hurdles in building high speed rail is paying for the project. The solution is built in from the beginning. Its not just that you build it, its how you build it.

Right after hurricane Harvey Texas was flooded and I was talking about how the maglev would still be running because it was elevated. All you need to do is make it to the terminal. Thats when Trump declared National emergency and classified my work under nuclear preparedness.
Imagine a bridge, that instead of crossing the highway, runs lengthwise. It's elevated so it doesn't get in the way of animals or humans. It never stops, it never slows. Because it is elevated, accidents are almost unheard of. Making emergency evacuation safe and quick.

✊An opinionated thread about designing your #Cloud #datacentre — Principles for a clear and obvious Naming Convention 👇

I am planning to run a series about cloud design. Follow me for more 😍

Feedback & suggestions are very welcome. Please comment & share the wealth via RT 👍
Thoughts here are not specific to #OCI and can be applied to any #Cloud or on-premise #infrastructure to some extent.
On the Resources Naming Conventions in Enterprise #IT

When (1)Naming, (2)Filing and (3)Labeling are done right for your resources, we can assume that you have a well defined environment. The problem is to agree upon what "done right" is.

From a recent @martin_casado article posted on @a16z:

"Cloud infrastructure is a substantial – and sometimes hidden – cost for AI companies".

I'm sharing the techniques we use at @FloydHub_ to reduce this cost on #AWS and improve our gross margins [Thread] #ML #AI
0/ Not all AWS regions are priced the same. GPUs can be up to 90% more expensive across regions. Other than cost consider these when picking your AWS region: proximity to your geographical location, compliance requirements, and integration with any existing AWS infrastructure.
1/ Reserve your GPU instances and/or purchase Savings Plans. Review your GPU usage for the last 3-6 months and purchase 1-year plans based on that. Gives you 25-30% savings on your GPU bill.

The idea that Trump is bragging about “the best economy ever” is as ridiculous as when he told us Trump Steaks were the “world’s greatest steaks.”

U.S. Growth at Slowest Since 2016 #TrumpSteaksEconomy #SOTU nytimes.com/2020/01/30/bus…
The deficit is $1T.

The debt is $23T.

Farmers are going bankrupt.

Steel workers are being laid off.

Manufacturing is in a recession.

Trump promised his tax cuts would “skyrocket” the economy.

But all we got was job growth 15% slower than under Obama.

#TrumpSteaksEconomy
The “Trump Boom” is like every Trump con before it: The reality doesn’t live up to the hype.

Worse, Trump has been a disaster for the very #MAGA voters he promised to help most: farmers and factory workers, miners and steel workers: thedailyedge.substack.com/p/the-trump-st… #TrumpSteaksEconomy

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

A thread on how to drive mass sustainability change.

@mokka is asking not for policies per se, but change-mechanisms, that can activate massive change within a decade.

I see four #consensus targets to trigger mass change

1 Limits
2 Infrastructure
3 Aspirations
4 Society
But first a quick comment on this question itself.

The first challenge is framing - where to start, what + how to target: some of the starting points and goals are not obvious.

Pushing a rock uphill is harder than pushing one downhill, obviously.

So: Which rock and which hill?
0 Framing

A lot of change is based on unstated frames of view, mainly:

Democratic (elected governance)
Para-democratic (popular mvts)
Technocratic, and above all
Economic (framing the world as producers and consumers).

These are bad frames. Not these rocks, not these hills.

1/ For the December #DemDebate @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta please consider asking questions that have been ignored so far like the #deficit, #infrastructure and how they will get their agenda passed with a slim Senate majority.
2/ For tough candidate-specific questions, @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta consider challenging #MayorPete on his experience or #BernieSanders on his questionable history in Latin America (including refusal to denounce dictators who were on the left) #DemDebate
3/ Two other overlooked areas @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta should consider are (i) #housing and the #HOMELESSNESSCRISIS (a big issue here in LA) and reviving #labor rights in the new economy. #DemDebate vice.com/en_us/article/…

Hard factual headlines will follow this one:

"Tories have maxed up UK state debt by 2.5 times in just 9 and half years!" This is unprecedented in peacetime!

1/15
"Despite #Tory #Lies to the contrary? UK #economy is flat on its back, and likely to fall further - GDP was just 0.1% in the 6 months to 30sep19 being our worst showing since the financial crash!"

2/15
GDP(Gross Domestic Product) = total output of UK #economy, on which vital tax-take depends. HMG needs our tax (from companies, employees, householders) to fund OUR public services. Flat GDP growth (low % uplift) means less capability to fund services on which we depend!

“The Chinese miracle is over.”

In a wide-ranging conversation, top radio talk show hosts and senior @EpochTimes staff provided context to an audience of media professionals about some of the most important headlines regarding #China. theepochtimes.com/the-chinese-mi…
John @batchelorshow, a talk show host on WABC in New York, said the #TradeWar has highlighted how “China’s business model is broken.”

US #Tariffs have taught companies they can move their supply chains out of #China, without being subject to unfair trade practices.
@batchelorshow Tom @sullivanradio of #TalkMedia Network said he’s spoken with #Farmers and residents in the heartland states most affected by #China’s retaliatory #Tariffs on US #Agricultural products; they support President Trump tackling the #Chinese regime’s trade policies.
