2. "The #BRI Status: A Grand Report on Its Present and Future" sheds light on numerous challenges faced by BRI like:
cost overruns,
environmental damage,
funding issues,
repeated delays,
lack of progress,
and poor quality of development.
@Santos4Congress Image
3. According to our investigation, 62.8% of the countries that have joined the #BRI are #developing countries, while around 17% are #developed countries.

This suggests that the BRI is primarily focused on developing countries.

🚨 #DEVELOPING: NYPD has responded to a hazmat situation in Manhattan that has left a 35 year old woman dead and at least 4 injuries, including 2 police officers.

NYPD Counterterrorism and Hazmat teams are involved.

I’m on scene, and the chemical smell is VERY strong. NYPD hazmat
NYPD Hazmat teams are wearing full PPE suits and are testing the vehicle and the content with wands.

NYPD has just told me they’re waiting on “other special teams” to respond before proceeding.

This situation is extremely fluid, so stay tuned.
The scene is located at 56th Street and Sutton Place on the East Side.

(1/5) A Sudden Stratospheric Warming Event (SSWE) - defined as a reversal of the zonal mean winds from westerly to easterly at 10 Hpa (~20 miles above the ground) and 60°N - occurred on February 16th. Another SSWE is expected in late Feb/early Mar..
(2/5) The SSWE is "displacing" the Stratospheric Polar Vortex (SPV) off the North Pole and onto the Eurasian side of the globe, and it is forecast to remain there into at least early March. SSWEs often increase, but don't guarantee, the likelihood of colder and snowier weather..
(3/5) An SSWE in Feb. 2018 caused the SPV to "split," with the primary lobe settling over North America & contributing to the onslaught of winter storms in the Northeast during March/April 2018. It often takes 2-3 weeks for SSWEs to begin affecting large-scale weather patterns..

In our latest #growth report for #Pakistan, we examined, among other themes, the role of #FDI in the country. How much #Pakistan attracts, how much it could attract, the impact on #productivity and on #jobs.

A short 🧵👇…
1) #FDI is a useful source of financing for #developing countries. It is stable, and typically associated w/ #export growth, #job creation and #productivity upgrading. Does that all of that apply to #FDI in #Pakistan? Let's see...
2) #Pakistan's #FDI inflows/GDP (in green below) have been historically low and declining. Image

#DEVELOPING Chung Pui-kuen, founding chief editor of #StandNews began to take the witness stand this morning as defense started their case.

A few points from Chung's account:
* The 3 founders of #StandNews chose to surrender their rights to benefits and to sell the company shares to a trust fund in order to minimize impacts on the news company in case any of them were under threats or pressure - a lesson learned from the shuttering of House News.
* #StandNews registered with the regulator of newspapers and magazines the day after HK gov announced to allow online media to join official pressers etc in 2017 because #StandNews wanted to provide more comprehensive coverage and better discharge duty to supervise the authority.

Here is my take on #COP27 outcome(s) on #climate #mitigation based mostly on fieldnotes from COP, focussing on #FossilFuels, #JustTransition & #equity/ambition dichotomy.@TheIndiaForum @girmanipal @CentreMarcBloch @FU_Berlin @NavrozDubash @ClimateDiplo 1/8…
I argue, "Despite alarming evidence about the pace of cc, #COP27 failed to raise mitigation ambition. While the 1.5°C limit was salvaged in the end, the lack of consensus on fossil fuel phase-down/phase-out scuttled the possibility of meaningful action in the coming years." 2/8
Not only are #industrialized countries' mitigation commitments grossly insufficient to meet the 1.5°C limit, their efforts to sidestep their pre-2020 commitments, Paris decisions & delink developing countries' mitigation efforts from #climatefinance dilute #equity. 3/8

Harris County GOP's Cindy Siagal
...I am representing the Harris County Republican Party and I'm tired of this crap going on in our party. voter suppression is when you can't go into a poll, when you dont have paper to record your ballot... @KHOU #developing (not an exact quote)

Clifford Tatum, Elections Administrator
not verbatim, but close

Release of the early vote will be delayed by an hour in Harris after 8pm when the polls close. They will have to process provisional ballots separately from regular ballots 1/2 @KHOU #developing
MORE from Clifford Tatum, Harris County Election Administrator

the processing for provisional takes a bit longer b/c there's a qualifying process... when polls close at 7pm they place a clerk at the end of the line, a clerk is placed behind him. @KHOU MORE

1. #NixonMao #rapprochement 50th ANNIVERSARY: SOME FACTS & LESSONS.
In only 50 years, everything changes. Strategic interests of two great powers aligned then as much as they clash today.
I hate threads but my blog is not out yet: here some disorderly thoughts.
2. In 1972, China needed to avert a terrestrial invasion from #USSR. The #UnitedStates was keen to gain a heavy-weight partner to checkmate #Moscow; but the long-term objective was to bring the most populous country into a rising US-led global economic order for the US to profit
3. In the following decades, the relationship was not void of tensions. However, strategic interests were important enough to save it from #TaiwanRelationsAct, #Reagan anti #communism and support for #Taiwan; #TiananmenSquare; #StraitCrisis 1995-1996; #Belgrade bombing
