South Carolina, Civil War and Gamecock trend. Charleston, SC is home to USS CLAMAGORE (SS-343). She’s a WW2 Balao-class / Cold War GUPPY II then GUPPY III submarine now being scrapped. Let me show you her today and take you on board… 1/ #WW2 #Submarines #Coldwar #CivilWar
2/ #USNavy #ships #shipping #shipspotting - #VirtualTour of USS CLAMAGORE (SS-343), a WW2 Balao-class / Cold War GUPPY II then GUPPY III submarine being scrapped. @USN_Submariner @CovertShores @submarines4ever @RLitwiller
@USN_Submariner @CovertShores @submarines4ever @RLitwiller 3/ I only toured Clamagore once. It's by the #WW2 / #ColdWar aircraft carrier CV-10 Yorktown. As we approach, note the smaller sail of USS Drum (top), which Clamagore would have resembled as first built in 1945 and the GUPPY III conversion sail (bottom).

1) With gas supplies, storage & moves (or lack thereof) to improve both, making the news (still), it may be time for a brief (non-specialist) #thread🧵 on a couple of the #maritime aspects of it, starting with re-posting this little thread from January on where, how & from whom.
2) As mentioned in that thread, Britain already has three of Europe's largest facilities for handling Liquified Natural Gas & in March @Trafigura announced their intention to re-open the fourth at Teesport, though there seems to have been little news since gazettelive.co.uk/news/teesside-…
3) On the storage front, it is worth bearing in mind that while most people's mental picture of gas storage probably looks like the urban gas holder/gasometer (left), the bulk of Britain's gas storage is, in fact, held underground in a few, depleted gas field reservoirs (right).

[#EolienEnMer] C'est fait✅! Les 1eres fondations gravitaires du parc @EolienMerFecamp 🌊viennent d'être installées au large de la #Normandie !

➡️Mais en fait, c'est quoi une fondation gravitaire ? Et pourquoi un aussi gros bateau ?

On vous explique tout dans ce #Thread ! ⤵️
Pour installer des #éoliennes en mer🌊, à + de 10km des côtes et par plusieurs dizaines de mètres de profondeur🐟, il faut des fondations solides !

➡️Mais pas de hasard, à chaque fond marin sa fondation. À #Fécamp, elles sont de type #gravitaires 2/9
Faisons simple, une fondation #gravitaire, c’est une structure construite en béton puis déposée et lestée sur le fond marin

↕️ Taille : entre 48 et 54m, selon la profondeur exacte où elle sera installée

🏋️‍♀️Poids : 5 000 tonnes, suffisant pour assurer sa stabilité🌊

1) @Reuters report that Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko has apparently suggested Russia is ready to provide a humanitarian corridor for vessels carrying food to leave Ukrainian ports, in return for the lifting of some sanctions #blockade #UkraineWar reuters.com/world/europe/r…
2) This is not the first such offer made by Russia. @SamChambers of @splash_247 reported another in March, which resulted in no ships sailing, & a different result this time would be a considerable surprise. splash247.com/no-sign-shippi…
3) Perhaps the key difference, however, is the apparent linkage of shipping movements to sanctions relief, tacitly admitting, perhaps for the 1st time, that there is actually a #blockade in place, & it may take more than raising the issue of Ukrainian mining to spin that away.

1) Excellent #UkraineWar #thread🧵 by @DAlperovitch on Russia's de facto maritime blockade of Ukraine's southern coast & some of the difficulties involved in lifting it.
2) For more on Russia's de facto maritime blockade of Ukraine's southern coast & the naval situation from the start of the war, significant elements of which still hold, do check out this #thread🧵 from March
3) And more recently this @defaeroreport #Podcast🎧🗣️ with @CavasShips & @CSSProvision, talking #Moskva, blockade & trade protection in the #BlackSea, & Russia's apparent inability to otherwise exploit their #maritime superiority in the #UkraineWar defaeroreport.com/2022/04/15/cav…

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.

GARA-GARA TENGGELAMKAN🇦🇺

JUST OUT! My team @CNA_org just completed a quick-look project – led by Alex Powell – looking at lessons from historical examples of #maritime #sabotage for #StrategicCompetition. I’ll summarize some key findings & implications in this THREAD. 1/n

@CNA_org The impetus for this study was discussions w/various #SOF entities as well as the call for work in this area by the Joint Special Operations University in its 2021 “Special Operations Research Topics” guide: jsou.libguides.com/ld.php?content… 3/n

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

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

Here too #China leads world in #carbon damage—by far.

Time for accountability on #RoadToGlasgow!

foreignpolicy.com/2021/09/10/chi…
#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.

There's a new #maritime incident off the #UAE coast. Appears to be related to the #GoldenBrilliant, a #Singapore-flagged chemical tanker signaling it's unable to maneuver due to exceptional circumstances.
A drone last week attacked a #Japan-owned, #Israel-managed tanker off the coast of #Oman, killing two crew members. #Iran is blamed for the attack.

Clear stakes:

"China has implemented a strategy & revisionist approach that aims at the heart of the US’ #maritime power."

"... our three #Sea Services have watched with alarm the growing #naval #power of the People’s Republic of #China & the increasingly aggressive behavior of the Russian Federation.

Our globally deployed naval forces interact w/ #Chinese & #Russian #warships & #aircraft daily."

#Subex is setting the market abuzz with many brokers talking of relisting above 20 Rs - which is across a major 8 year breakout level of around 18.50

#CrunchMetrics #IDCentral #DigitalTrust #IoT #IoTSecurity
Will be see a dream run in #Subex post relisting given fundamentals are fast improving for both business operations and balance sheet

See embedded thread for brief history of its turnaround.

#CrunchMetrics #IDCentral #DigitalTrust #IoT #IoTSecurity #CyberSecurity
Typo-plz read “Will be” as “Will we”

I think we will 😊-next 2yrs at #Subex should be similar or better to what #TanlaPlatforms achieved in same time since #Karix acquisition in Aug2018

Cash books are ringing at Subex with good visibility

So watch this space for M&A/BuyBack!!
