1/ 🗣We at @anghami have been working for 8 years proudly in #Lebanon supporting 100s of families, building tech & music to reach over 80 million users from #Beirut.
We're unfortunately, one of the few global startup stories in the country.
@anghami 2/ 👥We've always recruited based on merit across the Lebanese society, never differentiating between religion or belonging.
Today, because of a tweet that's not endorsed by our company from a personal account, I read calls to fire an employee & boycott #anghami
@anghami 3/ ☹️ In contrast, others warn of retaliation with counter boycotts if the employee is fired.
That's our sad #Lebanon life. Our new demarcation lines? Mat7af or Gallery Semaan?
I am very well versed in tech, and know ziltch in politics & would like to remain so.

What are MSMEs? And why did the #Government set aside ₹3.7Lcr ($49bn) for #MSME support?

As the name suggests, #MSMEs (Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises) are small businesses. Their definition varies by country.

In India, the definition was changed last week.

1/n
Previously, MSMEs were defined according to investment in plant/machinery (if they were in #Manufacturing) or investment in equipment (if they were in #Services).

It went like this:

2/n
Last Wednesday, @nsitharaman announced a new definition for #MSMEs. Manufacturing & Services were clubbed and a new parameter - annual turnover - was added.

Now it goes like this:

My colleague @ISOcertified & I recently wrote in @Diplomat_APAC on diversifying supply chains in the wake of #COVID19. A few commentators have brought in some skepticism on India’s ability to cash. We're fact-checking some commonly pointed concerns (1)..
thediplomat.com/2020/04/after-…
Skeptics commonly point to restrictive trade regime, labor, land, tax uncertainties & lack of investment strategy. GOI has overcome some of these problems. Due to this reform trajectory, we believe #India is more closer to attracting manufacturing investments than ever before (2)
Some major reforms for which govt doesn’t get enough credit: bridging production cost difference between #India & SE Asia. GOI is bridging through some sector-specific policies. Ex: MeitY's trilogy of manufacturing schemes to provide production, capital & land/infra incentives(3)

Governors across the nation have eased harsh restrictions related to the #CCPVirus or are planning to start soon.

Here’s the current #Lockdown situation with each state and #WashingtonDC. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/reopening-upda…
Alabama | Reopening started April 30 as @GovernorKayIvey loosened her #StayAtHome.

“As of this week, we no longer believe our hospitals will see an overwhelming amount of ICU patients who need ventilators, as we once believed, and that is sure good news.”
Alaska | @GovDunleavy allowed some sectors of the #Economy to begin reopening on April 24.

“Alaskans must be able to visit their doctors, pay rent, and buy food for their families.”

If there's a large migration of talented people from SF and NYC to Austin, Austin has a shot at being the next Silicon Valley.

Remember: Texas actually has a long tradition of innovation.

For example, the integrated circuit was invented at Texas Instruments.

1/ #Manufacturing is broken. We can all see that now. Global supply chains have been bending and breaking under the strain of #COVIDー19. From medical supplies to plastics to automakers, brands are scrambling to refactor their supply chains to adapt to our changed reality.
2/ At E xD Atelier, we’ve seen the writing on the wall for the last two years, and it’s my position that CoVid-19 will be to #cloudmanufacturing what SARS was to ecommerce. That is to say, the cause of the bend in the elbow, the catalyst that saw adoption explode.
3/ The rigidity and lack of dynamism in traditional supply chains leave them exposed to all manner of risk. We've seen that risk become reality with trade war and now #coronavirus

Holy moly. I had to do a double take 👀. #China’s factories activity plunges, worse than global financial crisis in 2008/9.
-Manufacturing PMI lowest on record at 35.7 (v. est 46, Jan 50)
-Non-manufacturing PMI at 29.6 (v. est 50.5, Jan 54.1)
-Composite PMI at 28.9 (v. Jan 53)
Again, this is why investors are panicking. The dramatic slowdown is the impact of #coronavirus on #China’s economy- and a window at what can happen in other countries depending on virus spread and government responses. More data to be released out of China this week. 😓🙏
Next indicator for us in #China: @caixin #manufacturing PMI due on Mon: est. 45.7 (v. Jan 51.1). 50 is # dividing contraction v. growth. Caixin survey tracks private, smaller firms versus official PMI which follows larger, often state, manufacturers. #coronavirus #supplychain

#China struggled to reopen today- especially firms in the #globalsupplychain. Manufacturers dealing with a tangle of conflicting requirements that vary province to province, city to city. Most being asked to provide extensive prevention of #coronavirus before they can reopen.
#GuangdongProvince requires 4 steps:
1) set up prevention/control protocol 2) quarantine non-local/migrant workers
3) supply protective gear for all workers
4) conduct routine temperature checks/disinfection
Factories meeting demand can apply for approval from local authorities.
For those with factories in #Shenzhen, the city explains its application process here: sz.gov.cn/cn/xxgk/zfxxgj… #coronavirus

Whether Huawei (or any Chinese firm) really is spying - or planning to - is almost irrelevant. There's always a #platformrisk argument for maintaining control of critical infrastructure - for a country or a company.

Cost? Problem is cost to whom? ISP's get to decide our fate, based on their costs, not ours, as citizens or a nation. A realignment is in order.

PS- I don't feel bad dictating to govt-created monopolies what to do.

I will now proceed to go on a #tweetrant / #tweetorial with regards to #Pharmaceutical #biotech pricing (focus on #cancer).

Very timely, also see @WSJ wsj.com/articles/big-p… on price hikes.

For the record, no #COI / #FCOI. Feel free to contribute to this discussion.
Lets look at the problem from the @PhRMA / business perspective. And lets suppose you are a wonderful company, started by wonderful people who just want to make the world a better place (I know, not real, but stay with me for a minute).
You start with a great idea / or pipeline platform and start selling this concept to #VC #VentureCapital, and lets assume that this is actually a really good idea. What is the needed return on investment to make this worth while. A: further R&D must exceed the cost of capital.

1) Electrical grid under attack?

You are watching a movie.
Let’s sit down and break it down.
This and other hypotheses and events.

It’s coffee time.
December 29, 2018.
2) There will be some intermittent pauses as I get set up and also research stuff.
3) If there is a silent civil war going on right now, the war has gone hot.

So my goal this morning is to pause and describe how we got here.

Observations, experiences, hypotheses + recent research.

To arrive at an educated guess as to what's next.
