On #defence and #security policy choices in the #IndoPacific :
I recently produced research assessing how 12 nations are aligning, looking at defence spending, arms imports, military exercises, intel sharing, and force presence agreements.

Who balances against #China?
Looking at trends in the values of stocks of imported #armaments, #Vietnam and #Indonesia seem clearly to be balancing against #China, whereas #Malaysia drops off strongly, suggesting #bandwagoning. Singapore stable.
A statistical analysis on trends in stocks of imported armaments shows most countries with a break (a change) around the year 2014 - this is consistent with threat perceptions towards #China going up around 2012.

Horrible to see the degeneration of #Malaysia, a once upon rising star among #NICs and Emerging Market Economies, which served as a justified model and example of equitable development and growth, now, sadly, falling under the list of nations that are rotten to the core.
This turmoil started after DR Mahathir left power.
Since Dr Abdullah Badawi took over the reins of political power, Malaysia, as a country, has remained in a state of pendency.
All good work done in the 80s down the gutter due to bickering among UMNO and corrupt Najib n Rosmah Co

Avoid doing superfluous degrees from top-notch academic institutions.
Most of the top academic brand names will help you up to a certain extent, but, what employers are looking for are skills earned from subjects/specializations which can add value to their brands and bottom line
Just recently saw a top-notch social science specialist school offering a degree in #history in conjunction with another excellent #Asian Uni.
The problem is that nobody wants to hire exotic #historians, unless you are applying to work in the civil services or as a journalist.
A lot of universities are also advertising all types of degrees from financially #besmirching faculties which aren't contributing much to the university revenues.
So the vultures (FT staff) are offering degrees with a twist to lure innocent students to save their own jobs

The @BritishArmy recently selected its next batch of RSMs.

Here’s a thread about the most inspirational RSM that ever lived.

He fought in N Africa, dropped at Arnhem, saved countless lives in a POW camp, and became the first Academy Sgt Maj at @RMASandhurst.

RSM JC Lord, a🧵
Fighting with @3PARA in Tunisia he showed just how rigid he was in setting his standards. And in keeping a cool head:
He also showed a leader needs a sense of humour and compassion.

Ray Sheriff, of 3 PARA, was wounded in the chest in North Africa. He was staggering back to find the medics when he came across RSM Lord:

#Taliban/#ISI reportedly disrupting the Internet access of the #Panjshir resistance, whether in preparation for a final offensive is unclear.
This is absolutely extraordinary, all the more so for being presented as a myth-busting exercise.
The likelihood of a repeat of the 26 August attack by ISKP is very high

An Autocratic Ruler needs to control the following to maintain a tight grip over both power and people->
1. Education
2. Religious Interpretation
3. Taxation
4. Currency
5. Military
6. Monopoly Permits
7. Land
8. Unions
9. Publishing and Broadcasting
10. Property Rights
Of course, this is an expandable list!
Many are arguing that I should add more to it.
I just added a few domineering aspects, tools and policy interacting methods of governance, which a ruler might bring into use!
You may add more to the above suggestions.
In modern times, no leader, in the so-called developing world, outside the Fascist Southern European Region, the NAM Nations, LATAM Markets, and the OIC Bloc, had exercised so much control, across all walks of life, other than Late Lee Kuan Yew of #Singapore

Hey friends and comrades! Quick updates on going public about Anti-Asian racism experienced at @iiumich, @umichLSA, at @UMCSEAS, primarily but not exclusively from @umichsph Prof @laurarozek. This actually blew up: I'm humbled and thankful.
We've over 33k views on IG, and aren't too far behind on Twitter. The petition has nearly 1800 signatures; I didn't expect 100 on Friday. We're expecting news coverage in Ann Arbor. Also Dr. Rozek has acknowledged the letter @geo3550 sent on my behalf.
But still, no news from @iiumich. Not a word to me directly from @UMCSEAS even as scholars from their sister schools internationally call them out. No contact on twitter as both @MaryGao and @laurarozek have blocked me. Not even a word.
