1/11: In #Afghanistan, 1.2M are currently denied access to schools above Grade 6. For younger girls, factors such as a limited number of schools, lack of female teachers further hamper access to education. What can we do to address this inaccessibility? - A 🧵 Image
2/11 Despite limited access to formal education, our research in Afghanistan has found that displaced girls and boys use informal means of education to continue learning in safe spaces⬇️ Image
3/11 These include studying in madrasas, mosques, brothers tutoring their sisters at home & literacy classes for young women. These informal learning methods & safe spaces offer starting points for #humanitarian actors to build upon existing initiatives and bridge learning gaps.

Earlier today, #EU agreed on a badly needed reform of the EU Emissions Trading System (#EUETS) which is the system of cap-and-trade of #carbonemissions allowances for #energyintensive industries and the #powergeneration sector. The most critical points are:
1. Agreement to make it compulsory for #EU members to dedicate all their auctioning revenues to #climateaction #investments
2. Sectors covered by the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (recently agreed #EU #carbon import tax) such as #cement, #aluminium, #fertilisers, #electricty production, #hydrogen, #iron and #steel, will see an end to free #allowances for these sectors between 2026 and 2034

So, I have been seeing a lot of memes that compares numbers of the demat accounts vis-a-vis #Dream11 accounts.

Though it is an easy content for anyone to easily compare each of it and then criticise the people of our country in general, i just wanna put out my views on same.
So yeah, Look at what #Dream11 is all about? It is about cricket and cricket only.

You just need to know about cricket with which you can just bet on some random cricket players and if luck favours, boom you get amazing rewards.
And needless to say, every tom dick and harry in India knows cricket - either follows it or just watches it for pastime and even with such knowledge can play #Dream11

The Power of The Dollar 🧵

[a thread for normies -like me]
Long periods of #dollar-strength often ended with massive financial dislocations like the Latin American #debt crisis of the 80s and the Asian crisis of the 90s.

Oppositely, long periods of a weakening dollar came with strong markets like between 2003-2007.

Although the #USdollar is not itself an asset, cash is.

The dollar is the most common currency in which assets are quoted and exchanged in #financialmarkets and the economy.

It's the world's reserve currency (for now at least...) 2/ 20

The Bucket Strategy for your Investments:

Bucket 1: Emergency Funds

Put some money aside in liquid funds, FDs, and debt funds that can be foreclosed without penalty. The aim is to ensure that the money is readily available when needed.
#finance #personalgrowth #investments
Bucket 2: Short-term Goals

Your focus should be on protecting investments, not returns.
If you want to withdraw money in another 12-24 months, then don't invest in stocks or volatile funds;
look for short-term debt and dynamic bond funds.
Bucket 3: Medium-term Goals

For goals coming your way in 3-4 years-
the best practice is to invest 20-25% in equities and 75% in debt instruments.
At this stage, never try to invest in high-risk assets

13 days until launch.

Picking up from where I left off yesterday.

There are a couple more stories that I wish to tell.

Before I regale my first experience in an electric vehicle.

So please bare with me.

These are all important parts of the Pangea jigsaw...

I studied Economics, Maths and Physics at A-level.

The Physics A-level syllabus in the late 90s was pretty dry.

But we were blessed with an amazing teacher.

Who would teach in tangents.

His stories, insights, and anecdotes were incredibly rich in context and variety.

14 days until launch.

Let's go back to the beginning, the very beginning.

Where did the inspiration for Pangea start?

While at a school desk in a Hong Kong classroom in early 1991.

The first Gulf War created a number of concerning headlines in Asia.

Most shocking of which to my 8 year old self...

...when Iraqi troops started dumping oil into the Persian Gulf to stop a US coalition-led water landing on their shores.

Approximately 4 million barrels of oil.

Creating an oil slick of 4,000 square miles up to five inches thick.

My short protest poem was printed in our school magazine that year.

I can still see the images of birds stuck in the oil slick and the beaches stained black.

1/ The #PhysicalVersusPaper discussion and the effect on silver’s price can be a heated topic. Part of the last “#spaces” event we touched on various #derivative products constructed by BofA and JP Morgan.
2/ Expanding on this topic where #Silver (the actual metal) is used as a ploy to create publicly traded #investments, let’s look at 2 more traded #securities.
3/ Just like buying processed food, what is on the front of the box may not necessarily have anything to do with the actual ingredients listed on the back label. Remember to read the #nutritional facts in the prospectus before consuming.

Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.
