1/ Dear all, before everyone freaks out complete re the #supply #disruption of #natural #gas to #poland and #bulgaria which was initiated by #gazprom yesterday, i thought i'd make a little explanatory thread.
2/ first, consider poland. it exports about 10 bn m3 annually from russia. Image
3/ however, natural gas is not so important for its primary energy supply. poland still heavily depends on #coal, in particular for its electrical energy production. Image

🧵⭐️ Have you ever noticed how the stars twinkle in the sky? Did you know #Indigenous people use this phenomenon for a wide variety of applications?! Image
#Twinkling - called "scintillation" in Western science - is caused when distant #starlight is impacted by our atmosphere, causing it to change in brightness as it reaches our eyes.

The rate of this flickering is related to wind speed and turbulence in the atmosphere. Image
For #astrophysicists, it negatively impacts the quality of telescopic data. #Telescopes are placed high on dry, clear mountaintops to help reduce this. Image

#EXCLUSIVE casino slot tournaments are arguably one of the most sought-after types of online gambling contests. Indeed, who wouldn’t want to take advantage of freerolls offered only to a selected few?

Now, if you think it’s about those #MysteriousWorld upscale promotions…
What we’re about to share with you has nothing to do with breaking the bank in the hope of becoming a grandee and getting invitations to events organized for big spenders only.… No buy-ins, hefty prize pools, US players accepted, and all you have to do is to log into your player account and use a special password… Sounds like a ripper of an online slot tournament. The truth is, such hot ticket offers are not on every corner

According to the United States, on February 16, 2022, Russia is to launch a military attack on Ukraine.
According to the Prime Minister of Ukraine, after 24 hours, Russia will impose war on Ukraine.

In view of these emergencies and the war situation, on the other hand,
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is about to leave for an important visit to Russia. And Russian President Vladimir Putin has assured that he will not carry out any military action during the meeting.
What is the situation now that Ukraine and the United States are spreading speculation around the world that Russia will impose war?
Their motives are clear.

According to my personal analysis

Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”…

@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.

Yesterday I read a very important thread by @Jasonvj2005 about the #Thwaites glacier in #Antarctica.

The thread was in German, so I took the liberty to translate it. More people need to read it to understand where we stand.

Let's talk about it. And think about what to do. Image
The #Thwaites glacier in Antarctica is larger than #Czechia, #Austria and #Switzerland combined. It's already #melting and accounting for 4% of global sea level rise.

Now, researchers from the #American #Geophysical Union have found huge diagonal cracks across the ice shelf.
They're growing faster than ever before. The prediction: In the next five years, the ice mass could #collapse abruptly. What would that mean?

The ice shelf could disintegrate into countless icebergs, and the rest of the glacier will then flow into the sea 3x faster than before.

1/1 Our #openaccess article (with @MagnusLLundgren and @_vincenzobove) is now online at Journal of Conflict Resolution!

“Politics or Performance? Leadership Accountability in UN Peacekeeping”
2/2 Does the #UN Secretariat hold leaders of #peacekeeping operations (SRSGs) and Force Commanders (FCs) accountable for mission performance?

Mission performance ≠ only actions of leaders, but sanctioning SRSGs and FCs allows Secretariat to signal a commitment to accountability
3/3 Sanctions = contract non-renewal, early termination, even public dismissal (only SRSG Gaye and FC Ondieki so far)

The Secretariat faces a politics-performance trade-off (Comparative Politics concept ➡️ #IR): difficult to fire SRSGs and FCs from powerful or pivotal countries

தாமதமாகவே கிளம்ப முடிந்தது. இரவில்தான் வந்து சேர்ந்தேன் கடலுக்கு. வந்தவுடன் டென்ட் போடும் முயற்சியில் , 10 ஆண்டு உழைத்த டென்ட் காற்றில் உடைந்து விட்டது. Duct Tape போட்டு பட்டி & டிங்கரிங் முறையில் ஒருவழியாக இரவு கொட்டகையை போட்டு முடிக்க 10 மணியாகிவிட்டது.
வீட்டில் இருந்து கிளம்பும் நேரத்தில் நண்பர் ஒருவரின் சகோதரி இந்தியாவில் கொரோனாவில் இறந்த செய்தி😔. தினமும் ஒரு செய்தி வருகிறது ..நேரில் சென்று ஆறுதல் சொல்லிவிட்டு ஏனோதானோ என்று கிளம்பியதில் முக்கியமான Sleeping Bag ஐ மறந்துவிட்டேன். .
குளிர் & கடற்காற்று ..

#Whales & #dolphins are facing many manmade existential threats: depletion of food by overfishing, drop in birthrates due to industrial pollution, killing by discarded fishnets & plastics etc
#Watch #Seaspiracy. It’s #seas #piracy. It’s #conspirasea
Over 300,000 #whales and #dolphins are killed as bycatch in #fishnets every year. People eating #seafood is the reason that fishing trawlers go to sea & cause these deaths of whales & dolphins. #Boycott #seafood. It’s #seas #piracy

Every year at least 50 million #sharks are killed as #bycatch in commercial #fishing. 90% of sharks have been lost in the last few decades. Eating seafood contributes to the bykill of sharks and other #sealife.

Thanks to @elisetanyl for inviting me to chat about fundraising during #covid19; the topic of valuation is an interesting one, particularly in the seed stage - some quick thoughts, aimed at the #SEA ecosystem 👇
1/ What's the right valuation for a company? How is it determined? Founders are understandably concerned about dilution, but the reality of the situation is that price is a function of supply and demand
2/ What someone else got for their business and their deal has little to no bearing on what you can get if there is NO DEMAND for your deal.

#Europe is the midst of its #5G decision, with all eyes currently set on Germany. But there is a second crucial theatre for 5G competition that regrettably gets very little attention: #SoutheastAsia. Thread:
Right at China’s doorstep #Huawei has a long history and market share dominance in the strategically important region. Of the ten @ASEAN countries only Singapore & Vietnam have so far opted for Huawei’s competitors. 1/7
For the less affluent #SEA states cost-benefit calculation is central & so far pretty clear: Huawei is cheap & offers leading technology. For them costs are less tangible: Some #SoutheastAsian states rely on #US security. But how will US react to UK decision? Will it at all? 2/7

2/ On the topic of scaling, we discussed life pre-scaling (optimize your company activities around experimentation pace) and post-scaling (optimize your company around the ability to grow).

Alarm Phone, in solidarity with #SAR NGOs and #migrants at sea, condemns Italy's new Security Decree. This law is part and parcel of an authoritarian turn in Italy, seeking to criminalise any #resistance to racist state practices & deadly border regimes. #DecretoSicurezzabis
The new #Italian law, frames #SeaRescue as ‘abetting illegal migration’, a complete myth & lie. Closed ports, push-backs & failures to provide assistance at #sea violate international laws, maritime #SAR conventions & migrants’ rights. #Libya is a war-zone, not a #SafeHarbour!
Criminalising those who rescue lives, this law is yet another #European effort to actively let migrants die at sea. Letting them drown is a strategy intended to deter other #migrants from crossing. This does not work - it just amplifies suffering. #BordersKill

2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

Our first ‘Central Mediterranean Regional Analysis’ has been published – covering the period between 18 March - 30 June 2019. During this period, we were alerted to 24 distress situations in the Central #Mediterranean region, involving over 1,700 people.…
9 of these 24 boats were returned to #Libya. 7 were rescued to #Malta and 4 to #Italy. 1 boat was intercepted by the #Tunisian coastguards. The fate of 3 boats remains unknown. Until 30 June 2019, about 3,800 people have arrived in #Europe via the Central #Mediterranean route.
Our regional analysis focuses on 4 main topics: 1) NGOs rescuing at sea and attempts of European authorities to criminalise them. Though facing repression, they do not give up! Currently, #Mediterranea and #Sea-Eye are on search and rescue missions near the Libyan death-zone.
