Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”

amazon.com/China-Goes-Sea…

@NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime is proud to publish this new version w/ @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks!

Come for the #maps, stay for the #history...
Honored to have #JonathanSpence’s endorsement:

“The maritime #history of #China has long been a neglected field..China Goes to Sea bring[s] that knowledge-gap to an end..will be an indispensable companion to those readers seeking to understand where China’s navy may be heading.”
As European #naval powers & even the @USNavy struggle with ship numbers, #China has gone to #sea.

Represents the reversal of a great historical trend that began 600 years ago, when China withdrew from the seas & European naval expansion spread Western influence around the globe.

Das Rektorat der @UniHalle hat nun ein #Grobkonzept für die #Kürzungen vorgelegt. Für die Freunde der Politischen #Theorie und #Ideengeschichte gibt es leider keine guten Nachrichten. Für viele andere Fachbereiche auch nicht. Ein 🧵 1/12
Zwar wird PolThe/Ideengeschichte diesmal nicht namentlich genannt, aber die Institute für Soziologie & PoWi sollen zu einem Institut fusionieren und in der Folge eine PoWi-Professur wegfallen. Aufgrund der #Altersstruktur am Institut ist klar, welcher #Lehrstuhl gemeint ist. 2/12
Es handelt sich um ein „Grobkonzept“, da häufig keine konkreten Professuren genannt werden, sondern allgemeiner gesprochen wird. Demnach ist dann bei Institut xy eine Professur „kw“ zu setzen, d.h. künftig wegfallend. Insgesamt betrifft das etwa 30 Professuren. 3/12

My hot take: today's vote on the Constitutional Amendment was an utter non-event, partly because it was designed to be that from the beginning. It was never about #land. It was political theatre from the beginning, with the ANC, the EFF and the DA, playing to their galleries. /1
The ANC never seriously intended to change anything much. Their aim from the beginning was simply to outflank the EFF, and lock the #land debate up in parliamentary procedure till the election was safely over. /2
The amendment itself was completely vacuous, providing no additional clarity on the issue of compensation that was not there already; despite the @Our_DA 's apoplectic fulminations to the contrary, it would not have changed much. So it was dead in the water /3

[#Thread] Ce soir, parlons #mining & #PlaytoEarn avec @MinesOfDalarnia

Désolé mon vieux @MiningTk, mais ici nous aurons juste besoin d'une pioche, de bottes ainsi qu'un peu d'oxygène pour parcourir le monde de Dalarnia.

Enfilez vos bottes, serrez votre ceinture, ça se passe ⬇️
Dans ce #PlaytoEarn d'action et d'aventure en 2D, vous incarnez un #mineur et devez le guider dans différents niveaux aléatoires.

Le but est de casser des #blocs de pierres afin d'extraire des minéraux de différentes raretés ainsi que des reliques et des artefacts rares.
Grâce aux différents minéraux collectés, vous allez pouvoir faire évoluer votre #personnage ainsi que son équipement.

Ainsi, plus votre équipement et votre personnage auront des attributs élevés, plus vous aurez la possibilité de #miner des #pierres rares.

[Thread] Projet @polychainmon

Préparez le café et les gâteaux, mettez vous à l'aise et prenez le temps car le #thread est assez long.

Nous allons aborder dans un premier temps le projet sous forme de chiffres et de stats, puis dans un second temps, l'aspect jeu & #PlayToEarn
On commence par les investisseurs derrière le projet qui sont @MoonrockCapital (@polkastarter) & @Morningstar_vc

Ils ont permis de réaliser une levée de fonds de 740 000 $.

Ce qui permet à une équipe de travailler sereinement pendant plusieurs mois sans soucis financiers.
On peut penser que si des fonds d'investissements pousse le projet @polychainmon, c'est qu'ils pensent faire de l'#argent et qu'ils croient au projet.

On est donc (en théorie) loin du #rugpull avec la team anonyme sans aucune références.

What is The #Coal Bearing Areas (Acquisition and Development) Amendment Bill, 2021 proposed in the #ParliamentMonsoonSession ? #CBA2021

#coal #mining #FossilFuels #land #lawforall

@iep_india @CBA_Raipur @JharkhandJanad1 @AdivasisMatter @ForestRightsAct

1/10
#CBA2021 amends #Coal Bearing Areas Act, 1957 which currently allows #CentralGovernment to acquire #land only for Govt Companies i.e #CoalIndiaLimited & only for #mining purposes.

#Land was not be used for permanent infrastructure e.g.roads, rail

coal.nic.in/major-statisti… 2/10
The #CBA2021 will allow central government to do three things:

1. Give rights to #State Govts to lease #land to successful bidders of 2020 #CoalAuctions.

Private sector is incentivised and spared of #landacqusition #compensation

"The Dry" could have been just another murder mystery film, but what made it interesting was how it weaved in the #ecological crisis in #Australia - #bushfires & #droughts - with the social crisis in #rural farming communities & small towns.
The swirling dust devils, the dried up #rivers & creeks, correlates with a societal collapse. The washing of a car with waste #water, the red crud that emerges out of shower heads, all narrating how a #rain starved society has hit its #ecological limit.
It is also about the decline of the farming community in #Australia. A telling comment in the film - an old #farmer worrying about how his #land will be tilled after he is gone: "Farms with no people. Imagine that. No need for towns. No need for any of us."

1/ Has the #Metaverse "Devolved"?
Me in the @SecondLife #Metaverse in 2013 vs me in the @cryptovoxels Metaverse in 2021. People sometimes ask me why the 2013 Metaverses "look better". I have an answer for these people and it's gonna take several tweets, bear with me... ImageImage
2/ A bit of history: #Metaverses were created whole-cloth from the novel Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson. Active Worlds, which I actually tried (yes, I am that old) was fully based on that book's Metaverse, and provided the basis of all other Metaverses including @cryptovoxels...
3/ When it started, #Metaverses were totally separate and different from the concept of #onlinegames. The idea is to have more #socialimmersion and #userinteraction, not to have in-world goals to push the user in a direction...

1/ Moeten we #maatschappelijke #problemen onder #allochtone #Nederlanders aankaarten, of in de doofpot stoppen en doen alsof het niet bestaat? Hierbij mijn analyse en oplossing.
2/ Ik meng zowel met politiek-rechts als politiek-links. Ten eerste wil ik benoemen dat zowel #rechts als #links het beste willen voor ons land. Het is niet alsof "de andersdenkende" bewust ons land achteruit helpt. Het verschil ligt in #aanpak van #maatschappelijke #kwesties.
3/ Het standpunt van stereotiep-rechts is dat wanneer iets misgaat bij #allochtonen, dat het hard geroepen moet worden, zodat meer #autochtonen ervan bewust worden en er wat aan het probleem gedaan wordt:

Ofwel de #allochtoon past zich magisch aan, of we lozen het probleem.

My father served #Bihar #Jharkhand govts faithfully for more than 40 ys n returned to his native village #pandaul #madhubani with his savings. yesterday he was injured in stone pelting after pple forcibly occupied his land. @NitishKumar @PMOIndia @narendramodi @HemantSorenJMM
Overnight pple with red flags occupied his land on which he was going to start a new project. Pple with red flags pelted stones n wielded sticks at police who came to remove them. @PMOIndia @AmitShah @NitishKumar @SushilModi m.jagran.com/bihar/madhuban…
These pple had red flags but it isnt clear if they belong to an organised armed group, #Maoists, land mafia, or part of local / builder conspiracy. My family is injured. How can common pple live in such an envt. of #fear #lawlessness? @AmitShah #PMOIndia @NitishKumar @SushilModi

(1/6) 931 Millionen Tonnen #Lebensmittel landeten 2019 weltweit laut des neuen UN-Berichts zu #Lebensmittelverschwendung in der #Mülltonne. Damit werden 17 % der global produzierten Lebensmittel nicht konsumiert. Der größte Teil wird durch #privateHaushalte verschwendet (61 %). Image
(2/6) Zugleich leiden Millionen von Menschen täglich #Hunger. Es wird geschätzt, dass 8-10 % der globalen #Treibhausgasemissionen durch #Lebensmittel entstehen, die gar nicht konsumiert werden. Eines der UN-Ziele ist es, die #ProKopfVerschwendung bis 2030 zu halbieren.
(3/6) Die positiven Effekte wären vielfältig sowohl für #Mensch als auch #Umwelt: eine verbesserte #Lebensmittelsicherheit, weniger #Treibhausgasemissionen, Entlastung von #Land, #Wasser und Abfallmanagementsystemen, besserer Schutz der #Biodiversität und monetäre Einsparungen.

296. #Moxie (2021) A fun and entertaining coming of age movie that might be a bit flawed, but the performances by the cast is good and it is a bit long however it deals with a lot of important issues and it have a really powerful scene at the end, the direction is strong. ⭐⭐⭐ ImageImageImageImage
297. #TheHitchHiker (1953) A swift thrilling noir film that is visually pleasing with great direction, it is very tense,suspensful and fast paced (yeah it's only 70 min)anchored by a trio of great performances by the cast. The story might not fully fleshed but still fun. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ ImageImageImageImage

Late last night, approximately 150 #Israeli #settlers gathered in the small #Palestinian hamlet of Tawamin, located near to the Israeli #settlement of Susiah. They came to assault and force the Mur family out of the cave they live on in their lands in Tawamin.
The Mur family that lives on their #land in order to protect it constantly from local settlers. For many years, the family has faced #settler #violence in the form of tree uprootings and physical threats and assaults, all in attempt to remove this family from their lands.
The family was forced out of their home late night by a huge crowd of settlers and left out in the cold for several hours before they were finally able to take back their home.

सरकारनेच जमीन अधिग्रहण कायदा राबवून, शेतकऱ्यांची लाखो एकर जमीन तिही अत्यंत कमी दराने संपादित केली आणि भांडवलदारांच्या घशात घातली.तालुका स्तरापासून राजधानीच्या शहरापर्यंत औद्योगिक क्षेत्रासाठी जमीनी संपादित करण्यात आल्या. त्या हडपलेल्या जमिनिचे भाव आता गगनाला #antifarmerlaws #land
भिडले आहेत, हजारो हजार रुपये एका एका चौरस फूटाच्या किमतीचे झाले आहेत. एका एका उद्योगपतीकडे अशी हजारो एकर जमीन पडून आहे. अशा या सुलतानी कायद्याबद्दल मुग गिळून गप्प बसणारे लोक, आता अदानी अंबानी शेतकऱ्यांच्या जमीनी बळकावतील असा कांगावा करत आहेत. हे लोक एक लक्षात घेत नाहीत की #Ambani
ज्या दिवशी औद्योगिक घराण्यांना शेती करावी वाटेल त्या दिवशी जमीन धारणा कायदा संपलेला असेल. आवश्यक वस्तू कायदा संपलेला असेल. त्या परिस्थितीत शेतकरीही आपल्या मनाप्रमाणे किंमती घेऊन भांडवलदारांना जमीनी विकतील.

How did the #farmers go from desperately wanting to sell land, to protesting against selling #land? And more importantly, how is India’s Constitution the culprit here? A #Thread, from our recent #hippoBrain conversation with @srajagopalan <1/29>

#threadstorytime #FarmersProtest
In 1950, when #India became a republic, one of the major things on the agenda was land reform. Understandable, because India was incredibly poor. ~95% were working in Agriculture. <2/29>

#landreform #FarmersProtest
Most of them were not land owners; only 1-2% of the people working in Agriculture were land owners. So there was a push towards making this a more equitable system. Esp since the land was granted to zamindars due to on privileges given by the East India Company, etc. <3/29>

Und jetzt stellen wir uns vor, dass so ein Typ unser Kanzler wäre. Er wäre gar nicht in der Lage eine echte Krise zu managen, wenn er bereits wegen einer verschobenen Parteiinternen Wahl derartig erratisch kommuniziert.
"Es läuft seit Sonntag der letzte Teil der Aktion #brexit in #Eurppa. Und das mit der vollen Breitseite des Establishments in #GB. Über dieses Vorgehen herrscht blankes Entsetzen." (Subtext: ich weiß gar nicht was ich tun soll, die Briten sind soooo gemein)
"Es läuft seit Sonntag der letzte Teil der Aktion „#Klimawandel verhindern“ in der #Welt. Und das mit der vollen Breitseite des Establishments #FridaysForFuture. Über dieses Vorgehen herrscht unter vielen Neoliberalen blankes Entsetzen." (Subtext: nach mir die Sintflut)

#DBL #DilipBuildcon

Dilip Buildcon Ltd. is an India-based company engaged in the business of #infrastructure facilities on engineering procurement and construction (#EPC) basis for #roads #Bridges #Irrigation & #UrbanProjects.
@srslysaurabh @avinashmehta123 @Agarwal_Ishu
Why should one look into this? And does this deserve a place in my portfolio. Here’s my rational below.

#DBL started as a #Road Construction company for the western region and now has diversified into multiple segments and the co. has covered almost all the states in #India.
#DBL has secured orders worth INR 10703 Cr. In FY 21 and the total order book stands at approximately INR 26115 Cr. Orders are balanced between state govt. and central govt. entities. The company has successfully reduced risk on all parameters as far as business is concerned.
