1. Is financial market pricing in some heightened Taiwan Strait war risk this week? Yes, a little. No perfect measure. With China on holiday last wk, can attribute some pop of 5-yr CDS price as caused by heighted attention, which happens around Oct with back to back national days
2. To put in context, China 5 Yr CDS value is 48.87, reveals a 0.81% implied probability of default, on a 40% recovery rate supposed. US 5 Yr CDS is 17.4, reveals a 0.29% implied probability of default. Recent increase in US mostly by the debt ceiling fight. #MintTheCoin hahaha
3. @PredictIt betting market doesn't have a Taiwan specific market, but has 3 China related contracts. Betting on who would be confirmed for next US Ambassador to China, and Pres. Xi's chance of staying as party General Secretary for next 10 years.

In a series of Singapore's Biodiversity, let's take in the beauty of Singapore’s wetlands! 🇸🇬

The wetlands are highly productive habitats inundated with salt or freshwater seasonally or permanently.

📹: NParks

#Mangroves #Marine #Wetlands #Ecosystem #SingaporeBiodiversity
They provide rich resources to support an abundance of native and migratory wildlife, and naturally purify water by filtering out pollutants and heavy metals as water flows through the soil.
By buffering against strong winds and waves, coastal wetlands such as mangroves help protect our coastlines from erosion and developments from destruction.

There’s a gaping (loop)hole in #climate reporting, calculations & countermeasures—#BlueCarbon!

Must finally put #Seabed #CarbonSink on agenda for #COP26...

#Ocean covers 71% of world’s surface..<10% mapped w/ modern sonar.

Salt marshes, mangroves, seagrass beds & ultra-deep abyssal #seabed absorb large quantities of #CO2 from atmosphere & balancing critical #climate systems.

Disrupting risks grave & potentially irreversible harms
.@Nature: “#marine sediments are the largest pool of organic #carbon on the planet.”

Est. vol. ~7 trillion metric tons—>3X cumulative anthropogenic #CO2 emissions since 1750.

Bottom trawl #fishing & #seabed mining—both #PRC-led—risk damaging disruption.

As Taronga’s Research & #Conservation Coordinator, & a marine biologist specializing in #ConservationGenetics, Dr Jo Day, wears many hats – & most are waterproof! Jo’s work covers many areas & species, including the little-known Port Jackson #shark... #MarineScience #ScienceWeek
Data from GPS and accelerometer tags fitted to Taronga zoo-based Port Jackson #sharks allowed the team to identify resting & active swimming, as well as feeding behaviour.
Using fine and broad scale #MovementEcology data from these Port Jackson #sharks, #MachineLearning models allowed the team to identify these key behaviours in this elusive #marine #shark species. mdpi.com/1424-8220/20/2…

Australia has for years been battling to keep the Great Barrier Reef off the “in danger” list. On June 22, 2021, a UN committee recommended that the GBR should be added to a list of “in danger” World Heritage Sites.

The #GBR is 2,300 km long and extends across 346,000 sq. km. area, hosting an assemblage of fishes and invertebrates in the reefs, sharks, rays, anemones and myriad other forms all of which need a delicate ecological balance to thrive.

#GBR won a place on the World Heritage List under the World Heritage Convention, 1972, as it has outstanding universal value. As a fabled wonder of the natural world, Australia’s GBR and its diversity of #marine life found a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1981.

(1) The 4th stage of the Program by the Min of #Fisheries to build #ArtificialReefs and #FishSpawning habitats with old busses and concrete structures is been successfully conducted in the seas off the #Jaffna peninsula. Earlier stages were conducted in Trinco, Galle and Matara.
(2) The protest by the #TamilNadu #Fishermen against the program stating it as an irresponsible move has been rejected by the #GOSL and will be continued. Similar programs are conducted globally, it has been recommended by the #MarineResearch Institute in SL, #NARA as well.
(3) While it will boost Fish Spawning, #Marine Habitats and #environment damaged over the years by human factors and #illegal fishing methods such as #BottomLineTrawling, it will also act as an shield against bottom line trawling conducted illegally by the #Indian Fishermen.

NITI Aayog Islands Development Project: Megathread
The project involves:
- Redevelopment and Industrialisation of #GreatNicobar
- Redevelopment into a Model City of other islands, starting with #LittleAndaman Island
ensciencopedia.com/2021/05/niti-a… [1/16]
PART 1: REDEVELOPMENT AND INDUSTRIALISATION OF #GREATNICOBAR ISLAND
- The project involves construction of an #airport, #port, & a transportation system
- #Galathea WLS was denotified for the project
- The WLS is known for being the nesting site of the #LeatherbackTurtle. [2/16]
The denotification of the WLS in January contradicted the National Marine #Turtle Action Plan (released Feb 2021) which declared the Galathea WLS as one of India’s few ‘Important #Coastal and #Marine #Biodiversity Areas’ and ‘Important Marine Turtle #Habitats’. [3/16]

Auf dem Friedhof in #Folkstone in 🇬🇧 und in einer Garnisionskirche in #Kiel wird an die fast 300 Toten des „Großen Kurfürsten“ gedacht, der am 31. Mai 1878 im engl. Kanal unterging. Darunter sind auch zahlreiche Marineinfanteristen des @Seebataillon|s ImageImageImageImage
Dem Unfall vorausgegangen war der Fehler eines Wachoffiziers bei einem Ausweichmanöver, der zum Zusammenstoß mit dem Flaggschiff „König Wilhelm“ führte.
Nachzulesen in einem Bericht der Times hier: napoleon-forum.de/index.php?/top…ße-kurfürst-sinkt-vor-folkestone-31-mai-1878/
Die Briten kritisierten in dem Artikel u.a. die Führung des Verbandes unter der Küste und die zu geringen Abstände der Schiffe untereinander. Die Schotten waren nicht geschlossen, so dass das Schiff sofort sank. Die unerfahrene Besatzung hatte das Schiff erst kürzlich übernommen. Image

[1] Reports indicate that the #Venezuelan Floating Storage/Production Vessel, FSO #nabarima, currently located in the #gulfofparia, has approximately 1.2 million barrels of crude oil onboard & the vessel is in distress.

Why is this of concern to #TrinidadandTobago?
[2] The #gulfofparia is a semi-enclosed body of water located between #Trinidad and #Venezuela. The #marine #environment is a very dynamic system. Any oil that is spilled in the #gulfofparia will likely be transported by the currents and reach the shores of both countries.
[3] Presently, the #gulfofparia supports important #fisheries 🐟🦐 Many #fisherfolk in #Trinidad harvest #fish and #shellfish from the #gulfofparia🛥️ The livelihood of these #fisherfolk are dependent on a healthy marine environment.

Now we know Trump mocked a man's #disability because he feels "disgust for those who have suffered." As president, he told staff "not to include wounded #veterans" in an event because “Nobody wants to see that."

Trump's views of #vets: reporting from @TheAtlantic (thread)
.@FoxNews @AP & other media organizations have verified @TheAtlantic's reporting that Trump lied when he said he couldn't reach a French cemetery to honor America's war dead. In fact, "he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain."
“Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers," Trump told senior staff members," referring to America's WWI fallen. During the same 2018 trip, he referred to the "more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as 'suckers' for getting killed."

@SteveSchmidtSES 1>#Republicans have no platform. Literally. They are officially a cult of personality.

2>#RNC made lawless use of the people's house, the most powerful symbol of the state. Trump's in effect saying he IS the state, he IS the law.
Schmidt: 3>Trump campaign & #RNC know using the #WhiteHouse & WH staffers for the convention is illegal & did it anyway. Trump doesn't just demand loyalty. He demands his staff break the law as proof that HE is the law. "The light's gone from flashing yellow to flashing red."
