People who think that @BernieSanders gets us closer to @AndrewYang's vision for America don't actually understand Yang's vision for America: A Thread

#YangGang #EndorseUBI
#Bernie2020 #NotMeUs

(1/16)
First of all, #Yang wants a unified America. One where there isn't a huge political divide and so much hate and conflict. He doesn't alienate anyone.

#Bernie is incredibly divisive and angry and will only cause tensions to rise if given the nomination or the presidency.

(2/16)
The #FederalJobsGuarantee goes against Yang's vision because #Yang wants to redefine work in an age where jobs are being automated away and where work that has intrinsic human value isn't being recognized by the market.

Is the draft EU #mandate that different to the final mandate for negotiations with the UK? Answer: not really but there are some interesting nuggets. Thread:
1. Application of WA as important as future UK-EU negotiations: ROI - UK must work well (BIG job for joint committee). Mandate does not mention GB-NI checks but member states will be watching.
2. Process: there will be parallel negotiations (you can imagine goods, security & fish all taking place at the same time). EU negotiators will work closely with the Working Party on UK (that's where EU27 diplomats meet inside the Council). They will also update EU Parliament

The #ChineseShip detained by India and the international duplicity.
The Department of Revenue Intelligence and #Kandla Customs detained a Chinese ship on February 3 for carrying a falsely declared “dual use” industrial autoclave as an industrial dryer, which can be used in the manufacture of ballistic missiles.
Now the scientists from the #DRDO are examining the suspected cargo of the Chinese ship #DaiCuiYun, bound for the Port of Karachi to ascertain whether the 2005 Indian law against #WMD and the international laws on the same can be invoked against both the consignee & consignor.

My short take on @EmmanuelMacron's speech on defence and #nuclear #deterrence #dissuasion:
The baseline of the doctrine is unchanged: defensive role of NW, targeted against states' centres of power; strict sufficiency; final warning to restore deterrence; and vital interests 1/7
On that point: Macron specifies what previous presidents had already alluded to: "Let's be clear: France's vital interests now have a European dimension". I.E effort at being more open about the European role of French deterrence, while still not participating in #NATO's NPG. 2/7
Deterrence is also a necessary component of his effort to build a European strategic culture. He thus proposes "a strategic dialogue, with those European partners that are ready, on the role of French nuclear deterrence for our collective security". 3/7

Today's Cameco $CCO Fireside Chat with CEO Tim Gitzel is now available for replay. Highly recommend #uranium investors spend 30 minutes listening to Tim's #U3O8 & #nuclear market analysis & company activities. In this thread I'll provide some highlights. cibcvirtual.com/banff2020/s/37…
Section 232 overhang gone but most #nuclear utilities remain paralyzed waiting for #Trump to act on #NFWG report he now has in hand. Frozen #Uranium sector still not thawed as majority of fuel buyers prefer to wait for clarity. 🥶
Cameco has taken 25M lbs out of #uranium supply since 2016 thru multiple mine closures & #Kazahstan has cut 20% thru 2021, creating a 50M lbs #U3O8 primary supply deficit today. Inventories are being drawn down significantly.

HAPPENING NOW: #RFFlive’s “Making Sense of @FERC’s #MOPR Order.” Watch the livestream on our event webpage: buff.ly/2NjS9g3

#EnergyTwitter #FutureOfPower
@FERC 2/ RFF’s Kathryne Cleary is giving a brief primer on @FERC’s #MOPR order. Some context: @pjminterconnect’s capacity market, which we’re here to discuss today, is intended to promote investment and ensure adequate supply is available to meet demand.
@FERC @pjminterconnect 3/ Cleary: PJM has had an existing #MOPR in place since 2006, which was originally intended for new #NatGas plants to prevent them from bidding into the market at low prices. This MOPR order expands upon that to include state-subsidized resources.

☢️ The Biggest Nuclear Scandal You’ve Never Heard Of ☢️

Since this was tweeted, the #Obama admin ended the #MegatonsToMegawatts program, disincentivizing #Russia from decommissioning its #nuclear stockpiles, limiting our primary source of imported #uranium.

The company that…
… tweeted this — @USEC_Inc, our only private sector domestic enricher — then went bankrupt after repeated adverse rulings by @BarackObama’s @ENERGY Dept. that prevented them from building new reprocessing/enrichment facilities.

But wait, there’s more…
… here’s the kicker: Dep. Sec. of #Energy Dan #Poneman parachuted from his cushy gov’t career to becoming President & CEO of the company after it emerged from bankruptcy as @Centrus_Energy. Then #Centrus signed a big agreement with #Russia’s state-owned energy giant, #Rosatom

I did not know the Singer Sewing Machine business ... morphed into to nuclear facility simulation systems

Why we are looking at this? Mikhail #Alperovitch came to the USA in 1990, left in 1992, worked on a #nuclear facility simulation project in Maryland.
susandoreydesigns.com/genealogy/clir…
[2] BINGO - Likely as part of #MegaTonsToMegaWatts , we have nuclear plant simulation joint venture starting between USA and Russia

Which connects to uranium enrichment, which connects to Iran Deal, where checks were cut by US treasury Dept in 2013 after Mikhail worked there
[3] General Engineering Technologies, the name of the joint effort, looks a lot like a front company to me. 63 followers on LinkedIn? We will need to hit the old newspapers and see what we can find.

#UkrainianPlaneCrash #Iran
Two minutes after take off, the transponder, communications, and lights on the aircraft were shut off, obviously via remote. It flew in this hacked configuration for approximately 4 minutes and 30 seconds before, in error, Iranian ground forces mistook
it for a cruise missile and shot it down, with #Iran's top #nuclear physicists aboard. The plane was sent out during a no fly order to get the most important people (and their families) out of Iran before a war broke out, which Iran was expecting.

#AltMedia #news #MiddleEast
So who would turn off the planes lights, transponders, and communications as it flew through a war zone, and then subsequently make sure Iran's weapons systems detected it as a cruise missile?
GUARANTEE: IRAN DID NOT KILL THEIR OWN #NUCLEAR #SCIENTISTS ON PURPOSE.

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony

🚨 #Safety #culture tweet thread 🚨

Invited by @SafetyClubUK on behalf of @SaRSociety (thanks teams !) I’ve just had a thought provoking day thinking about all aspects of safety culture, across #healthcare #aviation #defence #transport #nuclear
and more
scsc.uk/e631
But what did I learn ? What hit the 🎯?

Here’s a mash up of some of the best lines of the day...

✅How can you get it very right, right up to the point you get it badly wrong?❌

(Apologies for any mis-quotes @PatrickWaterso1 and others in team
@SafetyClubUK

#safetyculture
✅❓Foster a questioning attitude❓✅

A “never event” is an event that should never happen, in healthcare and elsewhere. And yet they do...

Air Chiefs of 21 nations were present at #PearlHarbor during shooting. Why only #IAF Chief presence is being highlighted? Its a close shave for all 21 Air Chiefs attenting Pacific Air Chiefs Symposium 2019.
Air Chiefs and leadership from across the Indo-Pacific gathered for the 2019 Pacific Air Chiefs Symposium at Pacific Air Forces Headquarters, Pearl Harbor Dec. 3 to 6, jointly hosted by Gen. David Goldfein, U.S. Air Force chief of staff, and Gen. CQ Brown, Jr., PACAF commander.
Lydia Robertson, a US Navy official, has given a statement that the #PearlHarborShooting incident happened at a maintenance area for #Nuclear submarines.

While I am loath ever to amplify anything D'Souza says, I'll just put my #nuclear expert hat on and say: It didn't happen because it was something that had to be created by all-out nuclear war. So, he's right that it didn't happen. Because all-out nuclear war didn't happen. /1
Whether "nuclear winter" would have happened in the wake of a huge nuclear exchange is still debatable, since it depended on any number of scenarios to dump enough ash into the sky to blot out the sun. I never thought much on it because "all-out nuclear war" was enough for me. /2
But it's still worth thinking about now that we have people talking about "small" exchanges, which would likely raise ecological hell of a similar kind. But none of that is related to D'Souza's moronic point. Thank you for coming to this Pu-239 fueled TED talk. /3x

Heres Aharon Almog-Assoulin, a retired Israeli security official who until recently served on the town council in a suburb of #TelAviv. He was one of the undercover agents used by #BlackCube hired by #NSOGroup to #spy on #CitizenLab journalists exposing #Pegasus among other jobs.
Heres a partial list of #cybersecurity firms linked directly to #cyber weapons dealer #NSOGroup that targeted Indian journalists and activists using #Pegasus. Almost all of them spawned out of Israeli intelligence #Unit8200. #WhatsApp #WhatsAppSpywareRow
Acc to 2016 price list, #NSOGroup charges customers $650,000 to hack 10 devices on top of $500,000 installation fee. If 41 Indians were targeted it will be 4 times the fee + installation. That comes to a whopping 31,00,000 USD equals 21,96,80,725.00 INR. Thanks to @Kodungolan737

#India's Kudankulam #Nuclear Power Plant has been hit by #cyberattack. Authorities were already alerted of the threat months in advance. The power plant project built in collaboration with #Russia has been a target of foreign players since its inception.
greatgameindia.com/kudankulam-nuc…
The second 1,000 MW #nuclear power unit at #Kudankulam, owned by the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) stopped power generation on Saturday 19th October, owing to “SG level low”.
greatgameindia.com/kudankulam-nuc…
More than a month before the unit stopped operating, NCSC was notified of intrusion of their systems by #cyber threat intelligence analyst @RungRage. The alert was generated on investigation by #cybersecurity firm #Kaspersky into spy tools dubbed #DTrack. greatgameindia.com/kudankulam-nuc…

Die #IT-Umgebung des indischen #AKW's Kudankulam wurde nicht nur gehackt, sondern als Command and Control Server benutzt.

Hoffentlich war die #OT nicht auch öffentlich am Netz!

#KRITIS Sektor #Energie #nuclear #nuclearsafety #Resilienz #Cyber #Security

Zur Unterscheidung:

IT sind Informationstechnische Systeme (#PC #Laptop #Windows #Office, #Buchhaltung...)

OT sind Operative Systeme (#ICS #SCADA #SPS #HMI #PLC #Steuertechnik...)
Angemessener Stand der Technik #SdT wie in #KRITIS gefordert wurde offenbar im #AKW nicht eingehalten.

Strikte #Trennung zwischen #OT-Steuersystemen und #IT ist eine wesentliche #Sicherheitsmaßnahme!

Radiación ionizante en Medicina: Radiodiagnóstico, Radioterapia y Medicina Nuclear. Parte 2.

#Medicina #Nuclear
De forma natural, estamos expuestos a radiación ionizante. De media recimos 2,2 mSv/año y esta radiación proviene principalmente del Radón que es un gas noble procedente de la desintegración del Radio que está presente en todos lados.
De hecho, el Radón puede acumularse en espacios cerrados, lo que resulta peligroso, y por eso hay que ventilar las habitaciones.

Radiación ionizante en Medicina: Radiodiagnóstico, Radioterapia y Medicina Nuclear. Parte 1.

#Medicina #Nuclear

⬇️⬇️ABRO HILO⬇️⬇️
Lo primero es diferenciar entre Radiodiagnóstico (RD), Radioterapia (RT) y Medicina Nuclear (MN).
La RD usa Rayos X para tomar "imágenes" para el diágnostico (bastante obvio😉). Son "imágenes anatomicas".
La RT usa Rayos X (más energéticos que en RD) para eliminar tumores.
Y la MN usa radiofármacos tanto para diágnostico como para terapia. Los radiofármacos son radionucleidos unidos a moleculas (Glucosa, ...) y que son inyectados en el paciente (sí, el paciente se convierte en una fuente de radiación☢️). En diágnostico, se usan principalmente ...

1) THREAD: What to expect if the #US 🇺🇸withdraws from #NATO? At the Körber #PolicyGame, we discussed this scenario w/ high-level officials and experts in coop w/ @IISS_org - here are the summarized results for the Twitterati community: (have mercy, it’s my first thread!)
2) We wanted to know: How would Europeans react in such a situation?What are interests and red lines? Thus, we invited a 🇫🇷, 🇩🇪, 🇵🇱,🇬🇧, and 🇺🇸 team to play our scenario. Crisis in the #South, Crisis in the #East - were #Europeans able to get their act together w/out the 🇺🇸? 💪 🇪🇺
3) The short answer is: willing yes ❕but able❔ First, most teams focused on reversing a #US withdrawal from #NATO by all possible means, offering the 🇺🇸concessions that were unthinkable before - from #trade to #energy. But what if that doesn’t help? 🤔

Anger at acquittals of #TEPCO execs in #Fukushima case

Judge: "scale of tsunami couldn't have been predicted, #nuclear watchdog hadn't ordered additional safety measures"

But TEPCO knew & refused (thread)

Tonight on the @CNN #climateforum, Democratic candidates will talk through their plans to rapidly transition our country to clean energy. We’re guessing we’ll hear a lot about #renewables & carbon pricing. But what will they say about #nuclear energy?

#DemDebates
Will they mention that it’s the largest source of carbon free electricity in the US?

#climateforum @wolfblitzer @ErinBurnett @andersoncooper @ChrisCuomo @DonLemon
thx:@GovNuclear
Will anyone point out that, considering the scale of the challenge, we should get rid of fossil fuels before even thinking about getting rid of nuclear?
