Qatar is upset that Japan isn’t renewing its LNG contracts

🥊 “You’ll get no sympathy from us the next time you need LNG,” a Qatar official said to Japan in Dec
🥊 Jera let a giant 25-year contract with Qatar lapse last year

Great Nikkei report…
Qatar became the world’s top LNG supplier thanks largely to Japan

The first Qatar shipment to Japan was delivered to Chubu Electric (one of the owners of Jera) in 1997

But now Japan wants to diversify supply, and requires flexible contracts. That means lower volumes from Qatar
When the Fukushima nuclear plant suffered a meltdown in 2011, Qatar sent more LNG to Japan to make sure it had enough fuel to keep the lights on

Qatar may not be so willing to help next time

“I don’t even want to go to Tokyo,” where Jera’s HQ is located, said the Qatar official

Hey #econtwitter is there a common explanation behind 1) the incomparability of medical data from different EMR instances; 2) the incomparability of mattresses made by different manufacturers and sold by different retailers 3) the incompatibility of different mfg camera lenses?
Feels like the common thread may be that the opportunity to prove oneself better/ better for the cost that would arise from comparability is less appealing than the risk of being proven worse; better to hold onto market share from loyalists than risk competition.
but having a hard time seeing the medical record analogy, perhaps because it's not there. If this is something Freakonomics covered in 2017 I'd be happy for a reference.

Male chassidic garb, a THREAD, part II: 👇👇

In part I we looked at general features of male chassidic garb. You can read that thread here:

In this part we'll be taking a deep dive into the specific items of clothing. Buckle up! /1 Image
1. Let's start with underwear. Yep, there is chassidic underwear. It is called גאטשעס\גאטקעס, gatshes/gatkes. It is white and airy and long. Why? So that it shouldn't press or rub onto your penis and cause erection or arousal. /2 Image
It also has a flap that is very easy to maneuver, so that one can urinate through it without touching the area of the penis. Touching one's penis is strictly forbidden. Men see each other undress in the mikve and that's how there can be communal norms for underwear. /3
