Why the #oil embargo #sanctions is a disaster for #Europe & what you are not being told. A thread. Inflation of energy prices are is at all time high. In #USA which is a large producer #fuel #gasoline are up 48 % & 100 % over a year. Situation is much worse in #EU
In fact #EU is pumping more #oil from #Russia than before the #WarInUkraine. The #sanctions decided by the #EuropeanUnion are going to be imposed gradually & touch only #oil transported by sea. But you are not being told the truth . #Energy prices are hitting hard the consumers/2
will continue to grow while #Russia will make more money off gas & exports this year by exporting less, yes you read that right, because when you reduce the offer, the prices go up. But surely our leaders know what they do & have a long term strategy./3 msn.com/en-us/money/ma…

A significant #bond #buying opportunity is approaching.
As bond yields surge, history and #techncial analysis suggest that we should look at bonds for both #capital appreciation and a #risk hedge.
realinvestmentadvice.com/surge-in-bond-…
In Dec 2018, we wrote why Jeff Gundlach was likely incorrect about 6% yields.
“Rates are at levels that historically led to some sort of event either economic, financial, or both, When that occurs, rates will go to 1.5% and closer to Zero.“
We got to 0.5%
realinvestmentadvice.com/surge-in-bond-…
The surge in 2-year #bond #yields is unprecedented. Historically, such a surge in short-term yields coincides with either #recessions or #market events. With yields now 4-std deviations above its 52-week moving average, such has denoted peaks previously.

Thread, with lots of photos: Commerce Street (between S 21st and 23rd), the heart of #Tacoma's Brewery Blocks, *must* become CAR-FREE. Its potential is incredible!! Without cars, it could quickly become the most exciting, European-feeling corridor in the entire Pacific Northwest!
Here's the Google Street View of the 2100 block of S Commerce St. Would this be a *glorious* car-free block or what? The couple I talked to (previous photo) agreed 100%! They walk their dog all the time, and they can't stand the cars, especially at night, when mischief happens.
The breweries are STUNNING here. And we all know that drinking + driving = disaster. Removing #cars will dramatically increase both safety and urban vibrancy. Imagine the VIEWS from these historic buildings when PEOPLE replace CARS! @CityofTacoma

“‘What, you still have a car in the city?’ The well-meaning friend who had driven in from the suburbs for dinner with us let her fork slip into the fondue. ‘When are you going to get rid of it?’”
Keeping a car in New York City comes with all sorts of its own hassles, @nytimes reported in 1970: the nightly pre-martini search for a parking spot for the next day (post-martini is too late — by then the spots are all gone). And of course: the costs. nyti.ms/3iLEuyN
Today, many of those hassles and costs still exist. For many taxi-taking, Citi Biking New Yorkers who swore off private transport long ago, owning a car seemed at best unnecessary; at worst, a cumbersome time suck, @weareyourfek wrote in August 2020. nyti.ms/3sguvVd

Thanks to @steve_sedgwick & @cnbcKaren for having me on #CNBC #SquawkBox this AM.

What did we discuss? Well, #inflation of course!

I prepared some slides for the show which I'm happy to present in this thread.

Palladium production may decline in 2021 by 20% because of an accident at the mines of #Nornickel, major #palladium producer in the world. Regardless of how the situation at the mines will be resolved, the market may experience a price shock.
Part 1/1 Nornickel is the major world’s #palladium and high-quality #nickel producer and also a major producer of #platinum and #copper. The company produced a total of 2,826 thousand ounces of palladium (80115 kg) in 2020, that accounts for 40% of palladium world production.
1/2 On 24/02/21 it became known that operations at Oktyabrsky and Taimyrsky were suspended due to flooding by groundwater. These 2mines are largest copper-nickel deposits and key assets of $GMKN, with a combined production of 9.5 mn tons of ore per year- 36% of all output in 2020

1) I lose track of some things I’ve written about so I’ve compiled this #thread of threads. For context
I’m a 60 year old #ActuallyAutistic woman in the U.K. only recognised as being #autistic at 58. This is a purely personal perspective on
#autism
#Neurodiversity
#AutisticJoy
2) A year on from my #autism diagnosis I wrote this thread, with reflections on the process of being assessed as #ActuallyAutistic very late in life.

3) My (autistic) election experience (I keep trying to stay away from politics but failing. It matters far too much).

Core #CPI surprised to the upside, driving a solid gain in headline #inflation as well. The strength in the July report was driven by components impacted by #Covid unwinding some of their previous large declines and bouncing back from depressed levels.
We saw solid gains in transportation services components, such as #airfares, motor vehicle #insurance and rental #cars, which reflect that bounce back.
The #monetary and #fiscal policy responses to the crisis have credibly bridged the #economic gap caused by the unprecedented lockdowns, yet as #inflation deficiencies were already present pre-Covid, it’s likely that #policy will need to remain supportive for some time.

Marine Drive & the automobile, 1953.Archival pic from “Our Bombay,” a Dec. 1953 publication by Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) in which Prime Minister Nehru wrote: ‘A city, like a house, is not a mere collection of steel and brick, cement and mortar. It is the outward ImageImageImage
expression of the life of a community’. Marine Drive with 35 consecutive Art Deco sea facing buildings was the road to be on. The automobile brought speed, power, streamlined design, mobility and symbolised both success and affluence in a modern aspirational city. In these pics
Karl Bhote tells us we see a mix of primarily English and American cars. Convertibles were already falling out of favour, confirmed by only one seen at the bottom right, likely a Sunbeam Talbot drophead coupe. Since this is the pre 'Fiat Ambassador' days, we see mostly foreign

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. 😎
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

Close-up I made from the #Finland team's #photography showing @mod_russia's Army #celebrity #swag bags for the Diamond Jubilee #celebration of the #Soviet #WWII win... ignoring 1939-1941 🙄

1/9 I have purchased a car very recently. So, I went through the usual motions of a large and involved purchase at the time of my decision. This might also give you an insight into the auto sector slowdown #AutoSector #SlowDown #Economyslowdown #economy
2/9 Clean fuel vehicles are coming: Hydrogen fuel cell, & #ElectricVehicles (#BEV & #PHEV) are coming sooner than we thought. Govt envisions an electric mobility future for us & is taking a lot of steps to push EVs under #FAME2 scheme. To reduce pollution & fuel import bill.
3/9 If I buy a regular petrol/diesel car, it may get obsolete sooner than I imagined. Eg: NCR banned 10yr old #diesel vehicles to improve air quality, push towards electric. All this affects resale value of the #cars. Hence, I considered pushing the life of my current car
