BREAKING: #BNNDenmark Reports.

SMS, the well-known app for sending and receiving text messages, is said to be declining in Denmark due to stiff competition. On Saturday, the SMS app celebrated 30 years since the first text message was sent, which later took place until today.
According to digital trend analysts, the fierce competition from other apps such as Messengers, Snapchat, and Instagram will send SMS into early decline. #SMS #Chat #Competition #Information #Messengers #Snapchat
SMS usage peaked in Denmark in 2010, with over 13 billion messages sent during the year. However, the rise of modern technology has reduced the app's popularity in the country.

BREAKING: #BNNChina Reports.

Faced with the dilemma of choosing between the #US and #China in escalating chip war, Seoul is trying a balancing act to maintain relations. #technology #competition #innovation #economy #manufacturing Image
#SouthKorea is set to join US-led Chip 4 Alliance as its #semiconductor industry relies on the United States for equipment needed to make #chips, while China is the sector’s largest export destination.
Two Korean semiconductor manufacturers that have factories in China, #Samsung and SK Hynix, have been granted year-long exceptions from US export restrictions, with no clarity on what will take place once the year ends.

Good news from #Brussels
The leaked @EU_Commission non-paper on Emergency Electricity Mkt Interventions addresses the root sources of the 10-fold electricity price increase:
➡️Excessive profits of inframarginal technologies (nuclear, hydro, renewables)
➡️Gas scarcity

🧵 Thread
The proposals imply a big step #forward in our understanding of how #electricity markets should be designed
And watch out 🔊 because emergency measures pave the way to #structural reform!

Some key reasons & thoughts...
1/ Acknowledging that not all technologies should be paid at the cost of gas-fired generation is equivalent to acknowledging that:
📢 a single *technology-neutral* *energy-only* market design is not adequate – under emergencies & beyond

Majestic. Groceries in each hand, crook of each elbow, balancing potatoes on his shoulder, leaning back ever so slightly…

I watched a guy walk out of the supermarket with a whole week's worth of shopping WITHOUT any plastic carrier bags.

Trying to cut down on #plastic? A 🧵
So why go plastic free? It’s better for our oceans (microfibres from clothes, microplastics from decomposing waste). It means less energy needed to create disposable plastic bottles and bags.

Here are some ways to cut down, recommended by our fans on Facebook! #plasticfreejuly

Higher #import duties to tackle the #BOP problem is the wrong advice. It won't deliver on the intended objective. Why? 🧵👇…
1\ The #CAD is the result of a Saving/Investment imbalance. The sustainable solution to the #CAD entails policies that increase #saving.
2\ #Import duties might be a patch that in the short run curbs imports, but they will curb #exports too. Why? B/C they increase the profitability to sell at home, so firms shift from export to domestic markets. Import duties are implicit #export taxes. They won't reduce the CAD. Image

1/n ‼️ À lire en cette journée électorale : le bilan de 5 années de réformes de l’#ESR 👇

Merci à @AEFsuprecherche, @annabellallouch, Jérôme Aust, Julien Barrier, Hugo Harari, Christine Musselin et Emmanuelle Picard pour cette dépêche.

Fil à dérouler 🧶…
2/n Les chercheur·ses interrogé·es se rejoignent sur une note de regret : l’#ESR n’a pas été un objet de préoccupation politique centrale du quinquennat. @VidalFrederique a échoué à réellement défendre les personnels, qui reste “dans l’ombre de Jean-Michel #Blanquer”.
3/n Sans oublier les "réformes" à la chaîne : “Il n’y aura en effet pas vraiment eu de pause dans la création organisationnelle durant ce nouveau quinquennat, le symbole étant l’apparition d’objets nouveaux comme #Parcoursup, les EPE, les 89 campus connectés ou encore les CPJ.”

#Narcissism thread 🧵 15 (more) questions to ask yourself if you are questioning whether someone is a #narcissist
1. Do they devalue, diminish, demonise or harshly judge you or act as the righteous ‘authority’ figure with you regardless of their age, status or employment? 🚩
Are they #superior? For e.g. A non lawyer preaching to a lawyer about law. 2. Are they #defensive? Do they seem only interested in trying to prove that they are right & you are wrong, in a defensive mode? 🚩They are #competitive not co-operative. Co-operation is a must #healthy
3. Do they demand #attention from you? For e.g., insisting on having the conversation when it’s convenient for them only &/or use emotional #manipulation to ensure conversation happens on ‘their’ terms? They may not answer the question, go off topic, deflect, defensive, accuse 🚩

Ph.D admission decisions are kicking in & many students are going through rounds of interviews. Here are a few tips that I’ve learnt and shared over the years.

Disclaimer: These are based on personal experiences derived from a limited sample. Take it with a grain of salt 😀.
(1/19) First of all, let’s start off by acknowledging that PhD admission is extremely competitive. You're prolly fighting for an average of 5-30 spots out of hundreds/thousands of applicants. Attempting itself is a win. Kudos !👏🏿
#admissions #Competition #phdpositions #gradschool
(2/19) Money is at the stake. What does this mean? Someone out there is willing to take a risk on you & guaranteeing that you’ll be taken care of for 5-6 years. Your tuition, fees, health insurance, & monthly living allowance are all paid for by the dept.

“With subsidies and a protected home market, CATL became extremely profitable… The effort has also made #China a giant in electric car #batteries. China has 14 times the #EV battery-making capacity of the U.S… CATL holds one-third of the global EV battery market.”🤔
“CATL’s biggest rival globally is LG, with a one-quarter share. At one time, CATL also faced a tough rival at home. BYD, based in the city of Shenzhen, boasted a big-name backer, the investor Warren E. Buffett.“ #China #competition #EV #batteries
“Unlike CATL, which has invested heavily in #lithium-#cobalt #batteries, BYD bet on traditional lithium batteries… BYD is now exploring production of its own lithium-cobalt batteries. But CATL is also manufacturing more batteries now w/o cobalt…”🤔 #EV #ESG #compliance #Congo

🧵U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Comm. 2021 Annual Report to Congress

5 sections: competition (92 pages), economic relations(168), security(100), Taiwan(52), HK(52). 500+ pages, 1.5 hr video, 32 recommendations, w. 10 top recommendations.

Directly relevant, top recommendation related to Chinese VIE structured companies.

The commission not clear whether prohibition of VIE companies are limited to US listed or not. In the next 3 years most Chinese companies will be moving US listings to HK/mainland. /2
I myself have written extensively on VIE. It is not straightforward to say VIE is illegal in China, as VIE structured companies are now listed on China's own exchanges, folded into merge and acquisition regulations. /3

#InfrastructureWeek has arrived!

This #Infrastructure bill is about more than money.

It is also a bold commitment to universal broadband that we should recognize and celebrate.…
Congress has included critical language that lays the foundation for the broadband future we are about to embark upon.

This historic law is focused squarely on connecting every American to a whole new generation of opportunity.
In the legislation, Congress finds that:

Access to affordable, reliable, high-speed broadband is essential to full participation in modern life in the United States.

"Lying Flat" was quickly censored on both Douban and Weibo.

#LyingFlat is becoming a social movement of young people rejecting the #CCP's "Chinese Dream" 中国梦.

Having read through the #UK #IntegratedReview a few personal observations from a 🇩🇪 perspective, focusing on just a few key points - short thread
Very good to see how clearly the #IntegratedReview prioritizes #Europe & the #UK role via #NATO
Also good to see that cooperation with the #EU in the area of #security is specifically referenced.
The #IntegratedReview appropriately highlights #geopolitical & #geoeconomic shifts and the importance of the #IndoPacific while being realistic about what #UK #capabilities can achieve in that part of the world (emphasis on diplomacy & partnerships).
