#NATO is comprised of 30 countries and spends $1.174 TRILLION annually 💣 💥

#US is responsible for $811B of that, or 69% as we outspend ALL other countries by $448B 🇺🇸

Member countries are expected to spend 2% of their #GDP by 2024 but many are not on track…
In this graphic (2019) #NATO spend is compared to the rest of the world… 🌎

At that time #NATO spending was about 117% of that from non-member nations ⚖️

#NATO budget has only increased to now represent 57% of all global military spend 💪🏼

$40B heading to #Ukraine would represent ~4% of our annual #NATO contribution… 💸

But as Ukraine is not a member nation, it is unlikely this money will be considered in 2022 contributions to #NATO… 🌐

See how the $40B breaks down in link:…

A #journey to unknown! 🥰✌️

Nobody can help you out
It's only you, who can help yourself
To stay up, to stay motivated, to not fall, and to get up stronger even if you fall
You're the only one to lift yourself up
You're the only one to wipe your tears
As only you know what you're going through
Believe me
It's a journey to make you stronger and better
To help you cross bigger obstacles in future
These things won't even matter few years from now
But for now it does, and I understand the pain
But nobody else will, feel the same as you do
So only you can cure it
By putting a smile on your face
And getting back on track with more /confidence and determination

There is an obscure problem when you join the BIG-4 Advisory or auditing, or consulting side of the profession within the services sector.
Most of the co-workers come from an #Accounting background, which makes things awfully difficult to communicate and interpret.
I remember working with an #Audit Expert, having a BIG-4 background.
The chap didn't understand anything except for debit, credit, and fraud risk.
The assignment required to be sophisticated Actuarial Finance, Mathematics, and Econometric Skill Sets to understand the GAPS.
Hence, the biggest problem in the Financial Risk Management, #ERM, Quantitative Risk Management, and other FE Financial Engineering related risk management processes, when working with a #BIG4 Firm, is the interaction with Accountants and Auditors who have their own Lingua Franca

Policy can be hard to explain on Twitter, but #AB1139 is trying to tackle an important issue so let's give it a shot.

#CA chose in the 90s to invest in & encourage consumer #solar energy to meet power demand, lower prices by increasing supplies & achieve environmental goals. 1/
Whenever new tech comes out & there are no economies of scale, it’s often expensive. In the 80s my Ma was PISSED when Dad came home with microwave. He spent almost $500. Now you can buy one for under $60. /2…
Solar is no different. That's why CA chose to create a local solar sharing program, called net metering, for people who were willing to install rooftop solar and share surplus power with their neighbors. Even with net metering, however, solar was still out of reach for many. /3

RQ-4 Global Hawk drone. Off for another $2.5 million 10 hour provocation trip to prank #Russia #Crimea, no doubt

I put the images of the drone which was shot down in the main pics

Like all other flying pests, it was probably the best thing to happen…

RQ-4 Global Hawk drone

$2.5 million for 10 hrs #Russia #Crimea

it's why folks from #CA poop on the streets and the police don't care about the #homeless #addicts in #NewYork

At least two of these fly every day and proves #NATO is an obsolete failure……

Becoming a regular (expensive) feature, costing ≈ $1,000,000 per four hour sortie and a typical day being 10 hours; $2.5 million an outing

One of the reasons the citizens of #CA poop on the street

RQ-4 Global Hawk

FORTE10 11-2049…

#pollution #NO2 ImageImage…

I can't think of anything nice to say

extra long flight which was prohibitively expensive and gained nothing, not even an itsy bitsy bit of nosy-parker intelligence

$4 million

16 hours flying

8 tons of fuel, pollution, CO2 dump and deadly NO2 ImageImage
And today #FORTE12 joined in too - from Jordan

How nice…

if you ever wondered why they take hours circling each time, it's to calibrate, this might amuse you (it did me😎) they've broken at least 2 of them🤣🤣🤣

This is a tricky topic, but discussion needs to begin: Why I won't be attending the #StopAsianHate rally in #yyj tomorrow, a thread. [x/20] #bcpoli #yyjpoli

Anti-racism work needs to happen, but we have to be careful about what's being centered. I had multiple friends text me about this rally, hoping to do something useful. Uncritical local news coverage like this isn't helping either: /1…
“The shooting in Atlanta was shocking,” the Harmony Foundation, a local organization supporting the rally, wrote in a statement. But what is the Harmony foundation?

They don't seem to have much of an internet presence. But a quick search on Linkedin shows this: /2

(CA Exams 2020)

Supreme Court to hear a plea seeking adherence to safety guidelines and protocol in place while conducting #CAexams
SC had earlier asked petitioners to discuss grievances with @theicai 's counsel Ramji Srinivasan to iron out issues

Senior Adv Ramji Srinivasan: We are strictly in accordance with MHA guidelines. They needed isolation rooms, but we can't put to risk 5 lacs students by having such rooms as this exam is for 18 days. We can't risk with #COVID patients coming in
Srinivasan: transport and accommodation was sought but that is not possible. We will request that e admit cards be allowed to take hotels etc. We need to ask the @HMOIndia

SC: It will be state specific issue too. Earlier suggestion was made and states agreed..

From a #CA student on exam related concerns:

- 18 day long exams.

- Clarification required on what will happen if after giving some exams students aren’t able to give remaining exams due to Covid , high temperature, centre comes under contaminated zone etc.
Concerns of CA students:
- Students have to opt out and paper already given by him will become void
- Entry in exam hall will be allowed subject to thermal screening. What if it's normal fever? SOP says in such case students have to opt out. No isolated centres for such students
#CA students raise concerns:

- Many examination centres are under containment zone. Their SOP itself says that exams can't be conducted in containment zones.
- Some of the centres are showing covid care centre. How will exams be conducted there.
