War: it is all about #logistics!!

Understanding logistics, and mastering it, is key to warfare.

This is a fascinating thread about the logistics behind the Russian warmachine, when it comes to how it gets made.
Undoubtedly the West has been attacking Russia. (of course, if it is justified or not... that's a whole other debate, but it is still an attack on Russia)

Interesting conclusion to the loooong thread:
"#Russia is now cured from #Sinophobia."

As it was curious how at the high level, the Chinese & Russian leaders cozied up together. However... lower down, they were avoiding #Chinese products. But, no longer!

The original thread on what you are not being told about #EU sanctions on #oil has led many people to address many useful questions. The main questions are : tehnical (why is it so hard to make the transition ) , geopolitical (what we can expect) & operational (what other /1
solutions are possible). Assuming the #EU sanctions against #Russia will be maintained here is what we will happen technically, geopolitically, operationally. 1) technically speaking it is very complicated to change The original thread is here. /2

🍻New paper published on @BDCC_MDPI, collab. w. @mvitevit and @Fede_Botta:
Cognitive Networks Extract Insights on COVID-19 Vaccines from English and Italian Popular Tweets: Anticipation, Logistics, Conspiracy and Loss of Trust
@BDCC_MDPI @mvitevit @Fede_Botta We investigate almost 5k Popular tweets about #COVID19 and #vaccines from early 2021.
Remember when vaccines were announced?
How did massively read content frame vaccines? With which stances and emotions?
We use #cognitive networks and #machinevision to address these points!
We found #emotional #polarisation in the framing of "vaccines" in English tweets.
Emotions like trust and anticipation co-existed with negative emotions of sadness and anger.
A circumplex model corroborated this dichotomy. These emotions rose from discussions about cases/deaths:

1/ Dear all, many among you have asked me about my opinion on #oil, #logistics, #pipelines, price movements and a reality check on the #german #embargo plans. So I decided to make another explanatory thread. Grab a beer, this may take a while to read.
2/ It has often been said that oil is a global #commodity that travels on the seas. That view is not wrong, but incomplete. In fact, much oil is shipped by pipelines, on all continents. For an imcomplete but illustrative overview, see…
3/ Most pipelines either distribute incoming seaborne supplies to inland consumers (e.g., refineries), or they route domestically produced oil to seaports where it is loaded on #tankers.

It seems simple, but putting stuff in a #container - in essence a standardized box - is the biggest #shipping advance of the past century. And #Russia is losing the capacity to play.
Many results:
-(un)loading takes days, not hours
-#ports/#logistics hubs require 10x the land for specialized buildings to house #inventory
-shipping costs at least 3x (7x is probably more accurate)
-backlogs at all shipping hubs
-requires 10x the staff required to handle cargo
-MASSIVE expansion of corruption because everyone can see every bit of the cargo

Big section on this (and its end) in the #Transport chapters of the upcoming book: #TheEndOfTheWorldIsJustTheBeginning.

Gold stars for @mercoglianos @GMJournalist @FreightAlley @typesfast LarsJensen @man_integrated @loriannlarocco but can we pause the container talk for a few days and focus on avoiding famine? Can we focus on #BULKERS? Here’s a🧵on how we can all help. /1
Everyone tagged in this post is important to world trade. Top CEOs are listening & making decisions based on your work. Right now you are possibly more important than the Fed because a freight recession isn’t going to kill anyone, but starvation because we can’t move 🌾 will.
When I was Captain aboard ship I would sound the alarm during emergencies to order everyone to put down their work and focus 💯 on the crisis. We should probably sound the alarm right now but that’s a big ask so I will make the following call instead : ALL HANDS ON DECK

Looks like #western & #Australian analysts are finally waking up to what I've been publicly stating here for the last two weeks .
#Kiev & #Kharkiv are distractions , the real game is in #southeastern #Ukraine .…
In the Southeast sector #Russia has no #logistics problems with supplies getting trucked in via the DPR & LPR .If anything the #Ukrainian forces stuck here have logistics trouble with supply lines stretching to #Lviv nearly 1200km away ,nothing is getting out of #Kiev ,#Kharkiv .
To their credit #Ukrainian forces seem to have Prepositioned significant ammunition , troops & equipment in hardened dispersed storages in the east which they're using to fight on .
Of late #Russians have been Targeting these stores unerringly.

1/ Ukrainian Theater of War, Day 13: Russian forces continue to concentrate around Kyiv. Substantial foreign / mercenary forces have been brought in to bolster Russian forces. Ukrainian attacks on Russian supply routes remain effective. #UkraineRussianWar #UkraineWar #Ukraine Image
2/ Humanitarian Impact. UN sources report more than 2 million refugees have fled Ukraine. Social media posting continues to confirm the increased indiscriminate attack of civilians. 60,000 civilians are trapped in Irpin. Civilians attempting to leave Sumy were blocked. #Irpin
3/ Weather assessment. In Kyiv cloudy skies and snow showers continue for the next 24 hrs. In the east snow will continue through Friday. In the south mostly sunny skies will allow for increased VKS attacks. Poor weather impedes accurate OSINT collection and aerial sorties.

What Is a CoO?

A certificate of origin is a document declaring in which country a commodity or good was manufactured
The certificate of origin contains information regarding the product, its destination, and the country of export marked “Made in USA” or “Made in China”.
Required by many treaty agreements for cross-border trade, the CO is an important form because it can help determine whether certain goods are eligible for import, or whether goods are subject to duties.

Steps for obtaining a Paper Certificate of Origin:

Personal Growth is the biggest lever for #employeemotivation

When people feel that they are learning something and getting ahead in life, it makes them happy. I am convinced of that!

THREAD 🧵 (1/6)
And that's exactly why I currently take an hour every Wednesday to actively teach individual team members new things.

Whether it's understanding different numbers or KPIs, the interrelationships between different departments such as #sales, #productdevelopment, and #logistics, or much more.

The real reasons behind the #drivershortage and what to do about it....

I'm fed up of hearing corporations giving there reasons for the driver shortage to suit there agendas when really the answer is simple, it's not worth it! (2/32)
So let's start with why is there a driver shortage? There are a few reasons for this, firstly the average age of drivers is 50+ many of these are retiring faster than new drivers are coming into the industry, (3/32)
the nonsense CPC is also causing many drivers close to retirement to bow out early further exasperating the situation.

So why are the younger generation not taking up the slack? (4/32)

Very stylish!📽️

Very gory!! ☠️🔫💉👃💸

Perfectly set up for Series 2!🇲🇽🇺🇸🇷🇺

Stark visualisation of the key zones for a massive, dark, dangerous/murderous industry;

#Production - #Logistics - #Distribution - #EndMarkets


@skytv @skyatlantic @NOWTV #Narcos

Has obviously drawn on some recent real-life inspiration.

- Poor deprived zones of production

- Use of big business in distribution ✈️⛴️ (Price 📈)

- Wholesale & Street dealers

- End Users 👃💉💸…
Lot's of money is made 💸🔁💸

Biggest chunk seems to go to large scale brokers & distributors

Multi national - Hard to police - Intelligence

#Budget2021: Highlights & Investment Opportunities

A thread 👇

In what was a first-of-its-kind digital-only budget amid a pandemic, the government was committed to aggressively tackle the perils of an ailing economy.

Here is an overview of sector-wise allocation: Budget 2021: Sector-wise al...
The union #budget 2021-22 was focussed on six pillars, ranging from infrastructure to healthcare and the total budget amount stood at ₹34 lakh crore!
The Insurance Act, 1938 will be amended to increase the permissible FDI limit from 49% to 74% in #Insurance Companies & allow foreign ownership and control with safeguards. #LIC will debut on the stock exchanges in 2021-22.

On vaccination distribution, time is of the essence but I can’t urge enough that data after one non holiday week will be very telling about what actually needs to be fixed. We don’t want to screw up the science with wrong fix.
Jan 4-11th.
Then: Jan 20, competency.
See ⬇️ 1/
Some wild proposals being mentioned because this is a “disaster” there are “no plans” etc. and if you’ve been through this before you know systems take time and resources. I’m not defending anyone. Trump lied about 20 M. Eyes on prize. Sweeping assessments lead to bad “fixes.” 2/
So I urge patience before we tinker with science or medicine or allocation decisions. From my perch, money and personnel and maybe some distribution of locales (everyone thinks big vaccination sites, but small and more also works) This is great analogy from @ZoeMcLaren 3/3
