What we're seeing right now in #onted is the result of decades of neglected #infrastructure. Even some brand-new schools do not have adequate ventilation systems because they cut corners when building them. 1/x
Public buildings have a lifespan of 50-70 years if maintained properly. Beyond that, the wiring and ventilation systems, to say nothing of the materials used in construction, are old enough to need a total overhaul even if nothing is obviously wrong with them (it will be.) 2/x
But Ontario has been nickel-and-diming school boards at least since the Mike Harris era. Very few schools have had the needed upgrades to their wiring or ventilation systems. Some of the results: 3/x

In today’s thread, we talk about a recent CBN announcement. Not the naira this time though: the CBN recently announced that it would set up a ₦15 trillion infrastructure company (Infra Co) in partnership with the @africa_finance (AFC) and @nsia_nigeria (NSIA).

Why does #Nigeria need an #infrastructure fund?

We need infrastructure for our societies and economies to function. We drive on roads to go to school; we prepare our meals using electricity; we rely on telephone cables when we make mobile phone calls.

Infrastructure is conspicuous by its absence because our lives are built on it.  Every sudden dropped call, each hour you spend in traffic, all the power blackouts we face: these are just a few examples of when infrastructure doesn’t work.

Axis Bank is yet another big Bank to report great results for June2020 qtr

NII grew 20% YoY to 6985Cr
NIM at 3.4%
GNPA fell to 4.72% Vs 4.86% QoQ, reflecting better asset quality

PAT was 1428Cr Vs loss of 1879Cr in preceding qtr&profits came about,despite higher provisioning💪
Moratorium book of Axis,is just 9.7% of advances Vs 25-28%,earlier

Gravity defying moves of #Sensex are being questioned--well,truth is,1QFY21 results have been far better than consensus--From HdfcBank &ACC,to Bandhan Bank&Infosys, results point to fast paced recovery

#economy
Ignoramuses say,good results from #AxisBank are due to moratorium loans not being classified as doubtful assets or NPAs

Well,Axis has seen contingent provisioning of 1.2% at 6898Cr to cushion against NPAs&still declared healthy profits

Asset quality for most banks has improved

#Germany #IT #Infrastructure #Iran #Lebanon #Turkey #ISIS #Attacks

The annual report of the German Federal Intelligence Service warned against Iran’s increasing use of IT infrastructures to access sensitive information with the aim to circumvent sanctions.
There are increased cyber activities by Iran in Germany, the 388 page report said, detailing the internal threats faced here. The report pointed to Iran’s increasing ability in recent years to launch cyber-attacks, which it said were linked to tensions in the Gulf region.
The aim of these attacks is to “circumvent the sanctions imposed on Iran and to provide decision-makers with basic information about the planned political maneuvers,” it underlined.

#5G from space: The role of satellites in 5G

"5G has arrived, and new equipment is currently being installed in densely populated cities across the globe."

#COVID19 #MagicTricks

futurithmic.com/2020/03/10/5g-…
"In many cases, the demand for 5G capacity is exceeding #infrastructure improvements, especially in sparsely populated areas that are difficult to access."
"With the next generation of satellites – built from #5G architecture – they will integrate with networks to manage connectivity to cars, vessels, airplanes and other #IoT devices in remote and rural areas."

1/Reflecting on the interview w/@CathMckenna on @OttawaMorning on Fri w/@RobynBresnahan about the importance of getting back on track with significant investment into #infrastructure spending. I’d like to encourage a #genderlens & propose we also invest in our #careinfrastructure
2/According to Minister @cathmckenna’s mandate letter, and indeed all Minister’s mandate letters, it states, “You will apply Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) in the decisions that you make.” pm.gc.ca/en/mandate-let…
3/Infrastructure spending that focuses on ‘shovel ready’ projects (the Minister’s words) in the construction & trades sectors disproportionately ends up supporting men’s jobs, as men dominate these sectors. If this is our primary focus, it will have a #genderinequity effect.

✊An opinionated thread about designing your #Cloud #datacentre — Principles for a clear and obvious Naming Convention 👇

I am planning to run a series about cloud design. Follow me for more 😍

Feedback & suggestions are very welcome. Please comment & share the wealth via RT 👍
Thoughts here are not specific to #OCI and can be applied to any #Cloud or on-premise #infrastructure to some extent.
On the Resources Naming Conventions in Enterprise #IT

When (1)Naming, (2)Filing and (3)Labeling are done right for your resources, we can assume that you have a well defined environment. The problem is to agree upon what "done right" is.

From a recent @martin_casado article posted on @a16z:

"Cloud infrastructure is a substantial – and sometimes hidden – cost for AI companies".

I'm sharing the techniques we use at @FloydHub_ to reduce this cost on #AWS and improve our gross margins [Thread] #ML #AI
0/ Not all AWS regions are priced the same. GPUs can be up to 90% more expensive across regions. Other than cost consider these when picking your AWS region: proximity to your geographical location, compliance requirements, and integration with any existing AWS infrastructure.
1/ Reserve your GPU instances and/or purchase Savings Plans. Review your GPU usage for the last 3-6 months and purchase 1-year plans based on that. Gives you 25-30% savings on your GPU bill.

1/ The IDFC Institute study views #infrastructure through the lens of #job creation. We found that the greatest generation of jobs is when infrastructure investment is on roads in peri-urban regions. #thread @McKinsey_MGI @McKinsey @JonathanWoetzel @nitin_gadkari @amitabhk87
2/ Beyond looking at direct and indirect jobs, we estimate the #impact of induced job creation from investing in different types of infrastructure. We then propose a methodology through which the government can prioritise infrastructure that creates the maximum amount of jobs.
3/ We surveyed 2500 firms in 18 districts of India to estimate employment elasticity of different types of infrastructure investment. Job creation would be served well if the government chooses to focus on roads in peri-urban regions. Read the report here: bit.ly/38Ikohi

The idea that Trump is bragging about “the best economy ever” is as ridiculous as when he told us Trump Steaks were the “world’s greatest steaks.”

U.S. Growth at Slowest Since 2016 #TrumpSteaksEconomy #SOTU nytimes.com/2020/01/30/bus…
The deficit is $1T.

The debt is $23T.

Farmers are going bankrupt.

Steel workers are being laid off.

Manufacturing is in a recession.

Trump promised his tax cuts would “skyrocket” the economy.

But all we got was job growth 15% slower than under Obama.

#TrumpSteaksEconomy
The “Trump Boom” is like every Trump con before it: The reality doesn’t live up to the hype.

Worse, Trump has been a disaster for the very #MAGA voters he promised to help most: farmers and factory workers, miners and steel workers: thedailyedge.substack.com/p/the-trump-st… #TrumpSteaksEconomy

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

1/ For the December #DemDebate @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta please consider asking questions that have been ignored so far like the #deficit, #infrastructure and how they will get their agenda passed with a slim Senate majority.
2/ For tough candidate-specific questions, @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta consider challenging #MayorPete on his experience or #BernieSanders on his questionable history in Latin America (including refusal to denounce dictators who were on the left) #DemDebate
3/ Two other overlooked areas @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta should consider are (i) #housing and the #HOMELESSNESSCRISIS (a big issue here in LA) and reviving #labor rights in the new economy. #DemDebate vice.com/en_us/article/…
