"Our last video on #Japan's semiconductor industry ended with the industry at the very peak of its powers.

Taking place over the span of 30 years, the island country's rise to #semiconductor supremacy>

The Japanese semiconductor #industry once seemed invincible. But what goes up must come down. In this video, we look at Japan's semiconductor decline." (publisher-blurb)

Latest UPDATE on the #TFR (Travel Rule) trilogue:

EU institutions are working to finalise the #TFR text to implement the #travelrule in Europe. Please find below the latest details. The aimed-for deadline for conclusion is still the first week of June.

Key issues on table:

The provisions introduced by the @Europarl_EN requiring #verification of information for each transfer of assets, the additional requirements applied to transfers to #unhosted wallets and the #blacklist of non-compliant entities.

In the past weeks, the @EUCouncil has taken onboard the concerns from the blockchain & crypto #industry, as well as those of regulators and competent #authorities (!), that flagged the impracticality and unintended consequences these provisions would have.

As a member of @ScienceAU, Victoria's Science Society supports the #research sector's ten pledges, seeking commitments from candidates for the Australian Federal #Election2022. Let's run through them all, shall we? #auspol #ausvotes #AusVotes2022
Let's punch *at* our weight in #research funding, at least. It's a matter of investing in our brainpower as a resource for other sectors to draw on, & sustain tertiary #education as one of major exports. #auspol #ausvotes #AusVotes2022
We argue #research #translation is about "bench to #community" - #industry is a big part of that. Public funding established a world class research sector, but the private sector is where we need to build capacity to benefit from that resource. #auspol #ausvotes #AusVotes2022

So I saw a bit of disagreement last week over the idea of whether #biology is #programmable in any meaningful sense. As someone who works with biology in an industrial context, I wanted to unpack the idea just a little more. 🧵
For some, the claim that 'biology is programmable' is childishly obvious. Others say it's a bad metaphor or that if we don’t have total #predictability that it doesn’t count as programming. I tend to think both are right.
In #biomaterials, and the synthetic biology field in general, we are hacking systems we don’t understand. We are “programming" them (through environmental or genetic changes), but struggle in the predictability domain because we don’t fully grok this alien #technology (aka life).

*How #SriLanka got ruined*

Lankans voted for #Rajapakshas knowing very well what they did in the past, including corruption, selling out national assets to #China, #dynastic politics and all.

They still voted for them because Rajapakshas promised things they could not refuse.
1. Their #GST, called VAT Tax, on all products was reduced to 8%, thus making everything cheaper in one stroke. (It also killed the govt revenue). People loved things getting cheaper.
2. The minimum #incometax threshold was changed from 5 Lakhs per annum to 30 Lakhs! Very few earned more than 30L!
A very large part of the population became #tax exempt. This was very popular among the salaried class.

More #Russiasanctions do not necessarily increase the probability of #Peace, it could end up meaning the opposite. Many rightly point out that #oilandgas revenues dull the G7 block of Russian foreign exchange and have helped stabilize the #Ruble, at least for now. But...🧵
...we've never had sanctions like this and may be losing tabs on the strategy. Is a sovereign default a pre-requisite? Is there a bleed-rate on the #Ruble that equals a bleed-rate in the #war? We want to punish--understandably--but with what outcome?
We overestimated #RussianArmy and underestimated #Ukraine, thought we needed to hit immediately. But things have changed. Russia will fight an insurgency. This gives #sanctions and #Export controls more time. It also means in conflict, the return on additional sanctions weakens.

ZBF release finally draws closer ( We have been working to get the data/report out & understandable. Here is a short thread with some interesting observations that we made. First, here is a cheat sheet for our scenarios (a wide spread of possibilities)
First, we find that scenarios have huge amounts of #wind & #solar. We also find that deployment rates for these (& #storage) must dramatically increase to reach our goals (with and without novel generation).
This becomes increasingly important for limited technology cases & huge for #storage in terms of energy capacity.

Here's a balanced thread on #academia vs #industry from the perspective of someone who has held senior positions in both. I'm going to write this thread because a lot of what I read here reduces to "my tribe is better than yours" or "grass is always greener".

The academic trade is fundamentally freedom for money.

As a Sr #academic you barely have a boss and really get to determine which of millions of options you can pursue. New intl grants? More policy engagement? Acad leadership? Media? Translational research? All up to you.

Making the most of this implies a couple of things:
1) you must have a clear path to a senior position to take advantage
2) your institution must not be over corporatizing.

Let's address these two

The online casino #INDUSTRY is changing at a furious pace. New online casinos are launching with increasing frequency. Several new casino games make their appearance every #weekend . The legislative framework for online gambling is taking different shapes in different parts of the world. Unfortunately occasionally there is news of online casinos ripping off its players. To extract the best from the online casino industry a player has to be aware of the tricks of the trade and be up to date on all this information. Fortunately this is not as daunting a task as it may at first seem. A player need not surf through dozens of online news sites and online casinos. If he has to do so then he will have no time left for online gambling.

1. Having a work permit is a huge help and influences how often one gets invited for an interview
2. Having at least a couple of years' experience is a HUGE help in getting invited to an interview.

#Digital technologies, which have become one of the important parts of our lives, have numerous benefits in many areas such as #education, #health, #economy, etc. But, and there is a big but?

How to get rich

What's the best business book ever written? Probably "How to get rich" by #FelixDennis, a billionaire who picked this cheesy title as a joke but dropped some real business wisdom. Here are 25 immensely valuable lessons from his book.
A thread 👇 🧵
On #makingexcuses: Most of the so-called "reasons" for not pursuing wealth are not reasons at all they are excuses. Pitiful alibis you have erected to spare yourself from the quiet terror of taking your own financial destiny in your hands and making your dreams concrete reality.
On #gettingstarted: There is no point in sitting around thinking about getting started. Commit now, or leave your dreams behind. Begin now or turn away.

Officially, the German federal government wants to save nothing less than the world #climate. In order to achieve this megalomaniac goal, it does not shy away from any expenditure that costs our economy around 50 billion euros annually in the form of high taxes and subsidies. /1
This moralizing #climate activism makes every German citizen poorer by at least 600 euros per year. /2
But among the heads and chief ideologues of large lobby organizations, there is the naive hope that this massive transformation will finally make #Germany the world champion exporter again - through the export of #climate technology. /3

A Thread on basics about the #Chemical #industry

According to American Chemistry Council, more than 96% of all manufactured goods are directly touched by the chemicals industry.

Do Hit the Retweet and help us spread knowledge. (1/n)
Global Chemical Industry: -
The global chemicals market is valued at around USD 4,738 Bn; China accounts for the major market share (37%), followed by the European Union (17%) and the United States (14%). India’s share stands at ~3.5%. (2/n)

Source:- Laxmi Organics Annual Report Image
However, as the chemicals markets in Western Europe, North America and Japan are relatively mature, they are expected to record slow growth rates of around 3-4%, while the Asia Pacific (APAC) region should grow at a faster rate of 7-8% during the forecast period (2019-24F). (3/n)

Shit-stirring liar Andrew Pierce works for the Daily Mail.

The headteacher actually said the phrase “good morning everyone” should be used instead of “boys & girls”, because it's more inclusive & doesn't create a gender divide, adding “Of course we use the words boys & girls".
The headteacher made it crystal clear that despite misleading press lies & online reports, the words 'boys' & 'girls' ARE NOT BANNED!

Predictably, Nana Akua - the latest addition to Andrew Neil's polarizing "anti-woke" TV channel - objected anyway.…
And now, thanks to the unhinged partisan bullshit emanating from the global hard-right 'anti-woke anti-cancel culture' shit-stirring #industry, we now have outraged gullible "anti-woke" warriors who decry the "cancel culture mob" ACTUALLY TRYING TO CANCEL the headteacher. 🤬
