Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

@realDonaldTrump visits #WalterReedNationalMilitary Medical Center.

Only reason why he would wear that mask for **R the kids** that's my opinion...!
No he isn't playing with y'all..
He is just a good chess player that's all...!

#TrustThePlan ...!

I'm listening to @naval's Joe Rogan podcast and will be sharing key insights from the podcast under in this thread.
1. Every human is capable of excelling in multitude of areas, but most of us are summarized/labelled by limited tags.

You have one life, do everything you can.

"Specialization is for the insects"

2. People stick to one thing because its difficult to start over, especially as one gets older.

To start over, one should willing to be a fool and have a beginner's mindset, because starting over might be the best option one may have at some point in life

Wait ... WT actual F! @routledgebooks is republishing Augustus Buell's biography of John Paul Jones? Any #naval #historian who has published with them should be ashamed and embarrassed.
So, the story of Augustus Buell...historical fabricator & con artist. Seeing an opportunity to make some bank on a biography of "the Father of the American Navy," AB set out to write his bio but couldn't find the sources he wanted to make his story he made them up.
He created whole sources, including a sailors journal that never existed, he wrote whole letters that he then faked JPJ's signature on. If he thought something needed punched up in the history, to make it exciting, he would not only just make it up, he would then fake a source.

hearing—"#China's Worldwide #Military Expansion" is a dramatic bellwether of growing concerns in Washington & beyond.

Now online—hard-hitting arguments + many data points, some deeply-analyzed yet hard to find elsewhere in public domain:
CAPT Jim Fanell, USN Ret, former @USPacificFleet N2:

"today, the PLA Navy consists of over 330 surface ships & 66 submarines, nearly 400 combatants. As of 4 May 2018, the @USNavy consists of 283 battle force ships: 211 surface ships and 72 submarines."
"By 2030, it is estimated [by Fanell & @SCheneyPeters in their chapter in @NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime Studies Institute's Chinese Naval Shipbuilding volume… @USNIBooks that] the PLANavy will consist of some 550 ships: 450 surface ships & 99 submarines."
