I see #NHSEx has published the slides from its @HDR_UK “Data Access & Discovery” event, charmingly subtitled “A Forest Through the TREs” - on YouTube, if you want to listen:

*I thought the phrase was “cannot see the forest for the TREs”, but hey...
Let’s take a look:

hdruk.ac.uk/wp-content/upl…

One reason we use the category term #TRE to refer to Trusted Research (or any other use) Environments that meet the #FiveSafes is that everyone wants to call their own TRE something different, so no-one really knows what they mean...
Call yours what you like (e.g. for @ONS it's their Secure Research Service) but if it only does four #Safes, or three Safes - and if it isn’t also #consensual and fully #transparent - then it's not a #trustworthy TRE...

April: #National #Poetry Month

Conversations between a Medical Physicist (me) & CT scanner

~4pm: Overhead someone humming a rhyme

MP: Hey buddy, are you hearing the humming rhymes
Or is it just me hearing sound?

CT: No doc! You’re fine – U don’t need a brain scan yet!
1/
CT continues:

Actually, it was me who was humming the rhyme

MP: What! That’s a nice rhyme you are humming – sounds so lovely.

CT: Well then, let me tell you the rest of it doc!

Round and round I go around
All day long and all night long
Others may quit
But I won’t quit.

2/
CT: Continues

From going round and round!

Every time I go around
I peek in, by passing my x-rays
Then, I let my buddies generate
what’s inside

That’s why, I ain’t bored.

You may still ask,
at least once in a while,
“Don’t you get bored
To keep going round and round?”

Hard Hitting Realities of Laweypora #HMT #SrinagarEncounter for those who will try their best to draw a parallel between #Amshipora and #Laweypora.
A #Thread.
#SrinagarEncounter #Kashmir
#PoliceDeniesAllegation
#Lawaypora was a joint #operation launched by parties of #JKP, #Army & CRPF based on specific #intelligence about the presence of #terrorists in the Lawaypora area.
Based on intelligence input, cordon was laid & all the standard operating procedures were followed.
#Kashmir
The #operation was conducted right besides the NH44 under full #media glare of both #national & regional media. The operation lasted for 18 hours in the thickly populated area with heavy traffic & numerous houses in the vicinity that had direct view of the entire #encounter site.

#US #TriService #MARITIME #STRATEGY!

Focus on #China & #Russia = 2 most significant geopol threats to global peace & prosperity—

Clear stakes:

"China has implemented a strategy & revisionist approach that aims at the heart of the US’ #maritime power."

media.defense.gov/2020/Dec/17/20…
"... our three #Sea Services have watched with alarm the growing #naval #power of the People’s Republic of #China & the increasingly aggressive behavior of the Russian Federation.

Our globally deployed naval forces interact w/ #Chinese & #Russian #warships & #aircraft daily."
"We witness firsthand their increasing sophistication and growing aggressiveness. ... The People’s Republic of #China represents the most pressing, long-term strategic threat."

We recently explored: A Rockefeller communication manual on #contacttracing, the [Share] Verified (UN/Purpose) guide on vaccine #communications, & insights from The #Vaccine Confidence Project.
Here is another from The Behavioral Insights Team - "at the heart of the #UK gov't".
Spun from the "heart of the UK gov't", The Behavioral Insights Team expanded to a global consulting firm "w/ offices around the world... Our work spanned 31 countries in the last year alone...Our growing portfolio of #BI #Ventures makes #behaviouralscience-backed tools..."
The strategic & coordinated campaigns for global vaccine roll-outs & uptake, must be understood as #advertising/ marketing. The more subtle, the more effective. Billions $$$ have been invested for one simple reason: huge returns. What we see today - has been years in the making.

#Unrealism #NehruvianFP #CCP #IncrementalImperialism: Equality between Criminal & Victim is a Liberal Fantasy. Unless you call out criminal aggressors & their lies, they get a license for their #Geobblesian propaganda of calling every #defensive action of victim as aggression
2/ccp Chinese Communist Party(#CCP) is quite capable of taking what it wants from others(land, islands, seas, ports, telecom, technology, profits), issue is, 1) What can we get from them(eg land they took in May-June)? 2) What is best way to get it(eg alliance,def capital exp?)
3/ccp We are not content with the status quo" of, (1)Jehadi terror perpetrated by Pakistan agnst us since 1980, (2) Creeping acquisition of Indian territory on LAC by China, (3) Nuclearisation of Pakistan by China since 1970 & SinoPak alliance threatening us, (4) Ch in NSG, UNSC

"We will fight with what we have," can be costly in lives, when 2 land-obsessed, nuclear armed aggressors are colluding against us (for 50 yrs)! And it's difficult to indigenize when a stronger power is knocking down 1s door. We need both higher defence budget & an ally for 20yrs
2/xi The old story of the boy who cried #wolf will have to be inverted. In new story guards("experts") kept seeing wolf in distance, but didn't warn villagers, thinking its too far to worry. Villagers kept farming peacefully, till the wolf suddenly came & attacked children grp
3/Xi And we no longer have the luxury of time for gradual econ rfrm. We need #BigBang reform in FY21 to liberate a million entrepreneurs & attract Global #ValueChains to accelerate "catch-up growth". This will also generate revenues for Defence & encourage our partners'(economy)

(1) #National #security is not free, you have to pay for it, either in blood or in ST economic welfare. (2) As for trade deficit & macro equilibrium, they don't teach about China's "socialist market economy" in graduate school, nor do they incorporate it in trade models
2/ccp Intellectuals sitting 1000s of Km away (in rich cntrys) can pontificate, we have to choose, either to pay in blood by defending militarily against #CCPaggression on border, or develop cost effective economic strategy to retaliate. This requires understanding #CCPchinaInc

Words like, #containment & #constrainment, are useful for academic discussion, but don't constitute a #Strategy. Th objective of China strategy is, or must be, to Deter China's Imperialism on its land & sea borders. This doesn't exclude talking to it abt climate change or Covid19
2/fp #Deterring China, requires (besides economic & defence reform), bilateral & plurilateral, security, diplomatic & economic coalitions(with US, France, UK, Japan & Australia, EU etc.) Test is to #Deter China from attacking us again & again! https://t.co/j9stU19NfU
3/fp A #National #Security #Strategy & #Foreign #Policy, which fails to #deter CCP ruled #China from #CreepingAcquisition of territory under our control, is not worth the fancy words 1 uses to describe it. Without clarity on our goals & how to achieve them, it's just obfuscation

Surely every serious national security strategist understands the distinction btwn Govts Geopolitical decisions and th military's detailed scenario planning & action program. A govt can decided on basis of expected value of outcome or worst case scenarios-the latter is paralyzing
2/ns The critical issue in China-India conflict is that,as of now (2020), #China controls the #escalatory ladder. So India's #National #Security Apparatus has to make assumptions about when and how #CCPpla will escalate, if it loses the first few steps on its escalatory ladder!
3/ns The worst case scenario for us is therefore the one in which after loosing previous escalations, #CCP China escalates to a full fledged war/attack on India, by shifting US-facing troops and highest quality equipment towards India. This has proved paralyzing for past Govts!🤔
