Today we announce a first in #TeamOneFist history - #cyber striking an operational #Russian #AI/#ML (#MachineLearning) model, in addition to a #power #grid #SCADA/#ICS!
This is Op.Neutrino, an electrical counterattack against #SPB, #Russia, and now, it's story is here. 1/4
At 17:00 local time, we assumed control over an @EnstoGroup #grid #automation #controller belonging to the DK Port substation. Timing was chosen to match peak usage hours. In addition to controlling power supply, it was supplying data for Rosenergo's FLISR fault #algorithm 2/4
From the controller, we successfully fed bad data into the FLISR #ArtificialIntelligence model, via the connected sensors. Then, we nuked it!
Every attack against #Ukraine will be avenged, every #RU #data model will be corrupted! 🇺🇦☢️👊3/4 #UkraineWillWin #cybersecurity #infosec

@linda_a_burnett's workshop done, presentations attended, scholars met, and conversations had. What have I learned? Surprising things. Here's a partial reflection histories of scientific instructions, lists & colonial travel. @UU_University, @BookScribbler, @eayers0, @dominikhhh
First off, not all lists are alike. Much can be learned by the order of items, especially when it comes to ethnographic observation. The order of observation tells us about the intellectual context from which the instruction arises. #listing #History #Science #KNOWLEDGE
But study of intellectual context takes us into other domains - of national experiences, of inter-imperial exchanges, of cross-cultural encounters and yes, so often, of violence and indifference to sufferings. #History #Empire #colonized #Violence #KnowledgeManagement

Research Report of the Week: The #Revolution in #Semiconductors and what it means the #Power sector and the #energytransition

alexa-capital.com/news-insights/…
I am firmly convinced that we are in the middle of a revolution in the #energy world. One of the crucial points is around #digitalisation which enables #energyefficiency but at that same time depends on #electricity.
This spiral of digitalisation leading to electrification is one of the primary reasons why we are electrifying our energy systems. I can do without coal but I cannot do anything in this modern #digital world without electricity.

Breaking: Ratification of CETA unconstitutional. Supreme Court.
Patrick Costello TD succeeds in a hugely significant vindication of citizens' rights and their place in the constitutional architecture of Ireland.

The court judgments will need close reading. There may be a legislative path to legitimate ratification, avoiding a referendum.
The seven judgments will appear on Courts.ie shortly - link courts.ie/judgments

☑️ What is domestic abuse
☑️ Genesis of domestic violence

Domestic violence is all about #power and #control.

Being #inflicted with violence by an intimate partner or spouse can be a very confusing and traumatizing experience for survivors of domestic abuse.
There comes a #question why the sufferer doesn't "#just_leave,” the abuser. but abusive or violent relationships are often marked by complex dynamics that make it difficult to get away.
Abusers use domestic violence to gain power and control over their targets. but certain underlying factors might sometimes contribute to a person’s propensity for abuse, including

▪️experiencing childhood trauma
▪️holding certain belief systems about hierarchy and domination

typical of #management under #capitalism and its tyranny of #time: managers and bosses and #entrepreneurs, from @elonmusk on down, lay enormous emphasis on speed and punctuality—yet none of them give a crap about showing up on time. appointments are for the plebes.

~Chara
it's a way of flexing social status: if you have *more* social credit in Western society, you have the privilege of making other people wait on you.

#business and #finance propaganda—that is, business #journalism—will *praise* executives who blow off appointment times.

~Chara
it's a "#power move", an #Alpha Male thing, and all the rest of it—you showed up to an appointment at your leisure, making the underlings wait for hours—that *proves* you're a superheroic, genetically gifted Übermensch like @elonmusk.

everyone else is held to the clock.

💥A quick appetizer 🧵for my new article. #Chinese investments and #democratic #backsliding are mutually reinforcing in #Hungary. To further monopolize #political and #economic #power, the #Orbán govt continues utilising business provided by #Beijing bit.ly/3G4iICo 1/
After the 🇭🇺 MFA declared that it fully respects the “OneChinaPolicy”, the 🇨🇳 @catl_official announced the largest #industrial investment in #Hungary’s history. It stems from the strategy w/ which #Orbán committed himself to a China-friendly policy for pragmatic reasons 2/
The 🇭🇺 govt tilted the playing field w/ #clientelist #corruption. It created additional #informal sources through which #Orbán cemented #political #economic power. Economic ties with 🇨🇳 became an instrument to explore Asian markets/expand business in a #nontransparent way 3/

"The 21st Century Question: Emergently Engineering the Future"

Follow this 🧵 today and tomorrow for highlights from our 2022 #AppliedComplexity Network and Board of Trustees Symposium:

santafe.edu/events/annual-…

#Web3 #Cities #Polarization #EmergentEngineering #Decentralization
We start with a talk by SFI President David Krakauer:

"Would anyone care to guess why we're so GOOD at building transistors and so CRAP at designing drugs?"

"This thing [points to transistor] lives in a centralized system. This thing [points to cancer drug] lives in US."
"I'm going to pick on economics, because we like to do that at SFI. 'Ooh, look at that cover! So techy. Global, heat maps...' But here's 'Networks' [in the textbook]. THAT'S IT. Here's '#ComplexityEconomics.' NOTHING."

for the sake of argument, let's take @elonmusk as his word, and believe him when he says that he thinks of @Twitter as a "common digital town square".

I happen to approve of the notion of a common digital town square, and I agree that #Twitter is our closest imitation.

~Chara
that's not a *good thing*. a "common digital town square" should never be run by a corporation, because corporate governance under #capitalism is invariably two things at once: completely opaque, and authoritarian. @elonmusk rules @Twitter like a tinpot dictator.

~Chara
there's nothing unusual about @elonmusk in this regard: it's *accepted practice* in #corporate #management for decisions to be made arbitrarily by single persons—i.e. persons acting in the manner of tyrants, who expect their every word to be "made so". people WANT this.

A very special present from #TeamOneFist: Op.Switchblade, one of our largest #DataCenter attacks yet!
We hunted down every #networking #switch we could find in #Russia and tested them for vulns. From these, we conducted a #cyber strike against 55 strategically valuable devices 1/ ImageImageImageImage
We penetrated devices both large and small; many of them were at the heart of #ISP DCs like Rostelecom or Kuban-Telecom, but many also belonged to individual businesses. All had high utilization rates, uptime, and were rich in features: these were all core infrastructure 2/ ImageImageImageImage
These included #Russian, #Chinese, and #Western boxes like #Cisco and #HP!
We swiftly demolished them, before any of the sysadmins could react or notice us. After the initial strike, we kept reattacking if they were recovered (>8 times!). No uninterrupted service for them! 3/ ImageImageImageImage

Today, @BloombergNEF published its annual #CCS Market Outlook. The tl:dr is that, based on current announcements, CCS capacity is set to grow 6x by 2030. That’s 44% higher than what we expected last year. And it’s before you take #IRA into account. 🧵 with some key results: Image
(2/10) CCS is diversifying. Most of the capture will be happening in #industry and #power, rather that natural gas processing. And most of the CO2 will be going in the ground, not to oil wells for EOR.
(3/10) We’ve been saying transport and storage infrastructure could be a bottleneck. *For the moment* it doesn’t look like a problem. There’s more unallocated capacity than capture projects looking for a home for their CO2. This can change quickly, given all that Midwest #ethanol

Honestly #medtwitter why is it so damn had to have a consistent plan in place for #patients w #complexhealth issues when person necessitates hospital frequently?

Also, why get upset with #patient when lack of coordination between #medicalprofessionals, assumption of #patient 1/
goals as well as often your own biases result in care that is subpar & harmful & leads to said hospitalizations 🤦🏻‍♀️. I understand you all are in a difficult position yourselves but you definitely have much more #power than #patient. 2
Also, why does it seem so difficult for #hospitalists to pick up phone 2 specialists? I know many of you work hard to acknowledge your biases, to incorporate the #patients voice in care planning, BUT if you are not one, YOU are harming #patients. #HealthcareInAmerica 3/

@peterktodd @aantonop @lopp @adam3us

Each of you claim to understand bitcoin's White Paper. You claim expertise in the system I created. You claim that I'm a fraud because I say something contrary to what you promote. Yet, you are promoting a system that is modified vs bitcoin
You falsely claim to believe in a system that decentralises power and does not have intermediaries and yet act to control the network and to introduce a system such as the lightning network that creates a series of intermediaries

@Blockstream
You actively deceive people into believing that their home node is not merely a Sybil designed to give you power and control over the fate of BTC and all who use it.

This is your grab for ultimate #power!

#Latour was a giant, an indelible inspiration for me among many, who will be sorely missed, as others are articulating much more eloquently. But for me the lists of favorite texts I’ve seen are not hitting the mark, so this version focuses differently (and on the early days).
1) Callon and #Latour (1982) “unscrewing the big leviathan,” long before Tsing a different way of thinking about the #scales of phenomena, actors, projects as growing and shrinking; realities growing and shrinking in the same process.
bruno-latour.fr/node/388
2) #Latour (1984) “the powers of association,” a performative definition of society as continuously remade. Strong resonances to Foucault’s microphysics of power but in more dynamical terms. #performativity #power bruno-latour.fr/sites/default/…

“Naye Kirdar Aate Jaa Rahe hain
Magar Naatak puraana chal raha hai”
-Rahat Indori

Though calmer on the surface, the political potpourri simmering in the UT is tremendously vivid and dispersed. Newer entrants and redeemed oldies have made a triumphant comeback in the state 1/n
Though having a micro niche,these churnings r essential in affecting d larger political ecosystem across large temporal spectrums. A structural
narrative,long titled in a particular position has undergone a sea change, is now poised
to witness a dramatic upshot. 2/n
Shorn of their political offices for the last 4 years,d incumbents r dazzled by d transformation that hs taken place post-5.8.2019. Understandably,this set of carefully crafted machinations has spawned a new set of elites who r eagerly determined to capture the seats of power 3/n

Yesterday, we held the first "Defence and Statecraft Forum" & we were honoured to welcome a number of great guests. For those that couldn't make it, we are going to write a thread on the main points (in no particular order)🧵 /1

@Brussels_School #Defence #Statecraft
Supporters of #Ukraine are not doing enough to think about the plan for and repercussions of the country's eventual accession to the #EU and #NATO. One implication is that political and military support will have to be drastically enhanced. /2
Western countries have been providing weapons and support to #Ukraine, albeit more can certainly been done. However, as Ukraine presses #Russia there is a need to send Main Battle Tanks and Armoured Fighting Vehicles, as well as to ramp up deliveries of munitions.

1/ Your #energy is what they want.

How your #energy is fuelling their system of slavery.

🧶
2/ #Energy isn’t only about #infrastructure & facility engineering - weird statement coming from an engineer & @wef brainwashed MBA, right? Right.
3/ The human activity is all about #movement. The difference bt living & dead is the ability to #move. Movement = life. Don’t trust, verify - look at the remains of a 🐸 on the road next time & think for a moment. That’s how my dad explained this to me btw.

So you all wonder why Power price skyrocket in Europe when the main issue comes from Russian Gas shortage ?

A short thread, in Layman's term 🧵
1/12
#natgas #power #Doomsday
2/12 First, Gas-fired assets produced less than 20% of power in Europe, and in 2021. So why such a big deal ?
3/12 Any why the price surge in gas has almost and 1-to-1 correllation with Power price ?

It's complicated. But it's not.

#Power: "#Food #price rises around the world are the result of a 'broken' food system that is failing the poor and concentrating #power and #profits in the hands of a few, food experts have said."

theguardian.com/environment/20… #FoodSystems #inflation
"The Guardian revealed this week that the #ABCD companies (Archer-Daniels-Midland, Bunge, Cargill and Louis Dreyfus) – which control 70-90% of the global #grain trade – have been making a record #bonanza as food prices have soared in the wake of the #Ukraine war."
"Campaigners are concerned that seeds and agricultural chemicals are similarly controlled by a handful of companies, with just three multinationals – Bayer-Monsanto, Dupont-Dow and Chem-China Syngenta – controlling 60% of the trade. "

Clausewitz said, in his famous work “On War” (as often cited as it is little read), that war is the continuation of diplomacy by other means, well it says a lot more things, but i will keep just a few as i do not wanna write too long.
In his chapter 1, Clausewitz refers that "war constitutes... an act of force that is carried out to force the adversary to comply with our will." War, therefore, is a duel of wills, which, in itself, is not enough, since wanting is one thing and power is another.
Does not intervene who wants but who can, as it is said in #InternationalLaw

To impose our will, we need resources, in an amount that exceeds what our adversary can muster, first of all energy.
