France has donated equipment to the Gendarmerie of #Cameroon, including a DJI Phantom drone, JG Airsoft AK-rifles (training), body armour, and other materials. #AnglophoneCrisis
Additional images. You can read more about it here: facebook.com/67068415005952…
Before anyone gets too excited about the rifles, they are literally replica 'airsoft' rifles that fire plastic pellets. Probably made by Jing Gong or an equivalent Chinese factory. You can buy them for $100-$140.

I've been noodling about this problem for a while because everyone I know has dealt with #insurance companies who are incentivized to promise everything when selling their products but deny everything when actually fulfilling the claims process. 1/x
In many cases insurance companies no longer advertise to the end consumers. They advertise to employers who are incentivized very differently. Employers care about simple contractual agreement and bottom line cost. They don't care if their employees' claims get denied a lot. 2/x
So how do we fix this? Some jurisdictions have made certain types of insurance public jurisdiction. For example, car insurance in Quebec is the lowest in Canada because the Quebec government is effectively the insurance company. 3/x

#CentralAfricanRepublic (THREAD)

1) 200 to 300 rebels attacked the capital #Bangui today (PK9, PK11, PK12 & Bimbo areas).

Govt, #Russian & #Rwandan troops repelled them. But the rebels remain in the hills & areas surroundings the capital.

Read @CrisisGroup statement 👇
2) The rebels were generally equipped or light weapons (including #AK47 & grenades), several #RPG & probably mortars.

No report of the casualties yet.
3) It's unlikely that they really wanted to size the capital, if not they would have come in bigger number.

They seem to be trying to isolate the capital from the rest of the country that they already control largely & install an attrition warfare just at the capital doors.

1) CAR elections : preliminary lessons learned.

Thread (first part today, second part tomorrow)
2) #Touadera could be the biggest winner of the elections. Firstly, he will likely be reelected. Secondly, the recent events have weakened the opposition coalition #COD2020. Their failure to denounce #Bozize, when it became clear he was preparing a coup, eroded their reputation
3) #Russia, #Rwanda, #Portugal & #MINUSCA are among international winners.

# In only 3 weeks #MINUSCA & #Russia, whose reputations among the citizen were not always positive, have reversed those perceptions, at least for now.

# France on the contrary has it's back to the wall

Top U.S stocks making #investors very #rich
Despite #Bitcoin having touched a new milestone on #Christmas day by hitting a new all-time high of $24,600 with yearly gains of about 236%, it still lags behind a handful of listed #American stocks in terms of yearly returns
The leader of the pack remains #Chinese car company, #Nio, often tagged the Chinese #Tesla. Nio has outperformed by 11-fold gain this year alone, pushing the #car company’s market value past car giants like American based #GeneralMotors

GLOBAL RUSSIA ROUNDUP:

As Joe Biden's inauguration nears, U.S.-Russia tensions are rising.

#Russia is also expanding its military presence in the Central African Republic and carrying out provocative military drills with #China.

Read about this and more in today's roundup!
1) Sergei Lavrov described US sanctions today as "hostile" and vowed to retaliate.

Visa restrictions appear to be #Russia's retaliation of choice.

But rhetoric is getting caustic, as a Russian central bank official warned of US sanctions causing the collapse of the US dollar.
2) Donald Trump accused #Egypt of taking US aid to purchase arms from #Russia.

Now that S-400 sanctions have been imposed on #Turkey, Egypt's military links with Russia could gain more scrutiny in the US.

This could force Egypt to rely more on #France for arms.

This is a plot of the daily reported #COVID19 (c)ases (light blue), (h)ospitalizations (light orange), and (f)atalities (light red) in #Switzerland. In addition, I plotted the cumulative numbers added up over 14 days for (c) and (f) and over 22 days for (h), corresp. dark colors.
What do we learn from the data? The second #COVID19 wave in #Switzerland has reached levels in all indicators (c,h,f) (somewhat) larger than the first wave. The peak daily reported (c)ases are a factor 8.5 times higher than in the first wave.
The peak reported (f)atalities and (h)ospitalizations per day are 1.5 and 1.25 times higher than in the first wave. Both likely have not reached their maximum yet. Also (h) data comes in with a delay of up to 7 days from the current date, while for (c) and (f) it is ~3 days.

1/ Continuing our threads this week on our #ParisAgreement-compatible benchmarks report, we first turn to #transport and the share of #electricvehicles, hugely important for #decarbonising our economy. Read on...
2/ For all #transport in all countries, low carbon fuels (#electricity, #hydrogen or #biomass) need to be at ~15-20% by 2030, & toward 100% in 2050. While 2030 benchmarks vary, all converge to global decarbonised transport sector by 2050. See our report  bit.ly/CAT_PSRsum Image
3/ Passenger #electricVehicles (or other #zeroemission vehicles) need to reach v high market share by 2030 almost everywhere (developed countries 95% market share) & 100% by 2040. The global passenger #car fleet will be almost 100% #emissions free by 2050. bit.ly/CAT_PSRsum Image

#SBI to raise 20000Cr
#BoB,13500Cr
#AxisBank,15000Cr
L&T Finance,2000Cr
#HdfcLtd to raise 14000Cr

#KotakMahindraBank has already raised 7442.5Cr,#IDFC,2000Cr&JM Finance,770Cr
#IndianBanks are expected to raise between $20-$50bn in 2020

#Fitch says,Indian banks need about $20bn,with PSBs alone needing $13bn

Capital raising by Banks is hence great news,as it will boost #CAR& bring down rising credit cost from bad loans,in aftermath of #COVID

#Banks
Various measures by @narendramodi govt in last 6yrs have empowered Indian Banking

14000Cr to be raised by #HdfcLtd for example,will be for inorganic growth opportunities

#HdfcBank for June qtr,saw 21% growth in advances,25% in deposits,with #Casa@ 40%

Banks,looking healthier💪

So , vous vous rappelez de ce #thread #cultureBite @bite_culture de la semaine passé sur le #carrapide ? On avait fait le 1er tour du sujet avec son identité et son histoire au #Senegal
Dans cette 2eme partie ; nous allons nous amuser un peu à étaler ses influence culturelles.
En mai 2017 le @Musee_Homme de Paris réalise une série de court documentaire (dispo sur @YouTube) sur la symbolique du car rapide qui se termine par la révélation d’un replica du #carrapide au Musée à Paris. Vous comprenez ? ce “cercueil roulant” est symbolique 😊
Sir Instagram, il n’est pas inhabituel de voir que le hashtag #carrapide réunit un bon nombre de photographie. En effet, les photos de #car rapide dans les rues de dakar ont leur place sur @instagram et comptabilisé plus de 2,1k de mention ; c’est bon non ?

1 reason why ordinary citizens in most #African countries don't take #COVID19 serious is they think it's a #BigMan's thing or God's anger with #AfricanBigMen.

In turn, the big men have converted the #virus into an electoral instrument. It's an interesting story. Come with me....
In April, 82 yo @PresAlphaConde in Conakry did referendum to extend his tenure to #LifePresident. 2 weeks thereafter, his powerful #ChiefOfStaff, Sékou Korouma, promptly died of suspected #COVID19

africanews.com/amp/2020/05/14…
In Ethiopia, the onset of #COVID19 forced the govt of PM, @AbiyAhmedAli to declare emergency. Citing inability to prepare, @NEBEthiopia postponed elections due Aug 29. Tenure of govt ends early sept. Now the have got extension.

#WeThePeople are in big, horrible and #YUGE trouble because of #BadPlanning. I want to tell you a story - a modern day #parable.

Two cattle rustlers working on an #InsideJob to steal veal, decided to test their newfound Sharps Buffalo Rifle.
#RanchoDeluxe
The young rustlers' Sharps 1874 Buffalo Rifle test worked just fine - dropping one of the wealthy land-owning rancher's grazing steer dead with a single bullet of such tremendous caliber - "it blowed a hole in him you that could throw a cat through."
However, the folly of the rife-testing young and impatient American cattle rustlers became immediately apparent when a hair-raising #helicopter versus #car chase exciting ensued.

Still think #BigOil is the answer? Consider this:

Before 1886, people travelled via horse and buggy.

In 1858, the refining of #CrudeOil crude oil allowed for larger-scale processing & helped spur the #gas gas engine automobile (this is the first - 1886).

The Model T, produced by @Ford, was the first mass produced vehicle, but not the first auto.

Innovation led to bigger, enclosed cars.
