🚨Worried about the world's biggest dam #ThreeGorgesDam failing?

Take a look upstream at China's 2nd largest dam #XiluoduDam 😲#三峡大坝

This is a 2020 image and it looks like work has taken place in an attempt to buttress it.

This thing is HUGE! At around 940 ft high and 700m wide, it holds back 12,670,000,000 cubic metres of water in a 200 km long reservoir.

(Note: This image looks like CGI, but gives a good sense of scale) #Chinaflooding

China has a long history of corruption leading to poor construction standards and failure of capital projects.

The consistency and accurate pouring of concrete should be tightly controlled in such projects. This site looks to be shoddy, dirty and unkempt #XiluoduDam Image

Beipanjiang Bridge, spanning the Nizhu River in #China at a height of 565 meters

World's Highest Bridge and one of the greatest engineering achievements

Completed in 5 years

It is over 200m taller than India's (still) under construction Chenab rail bridge in Kashmir
No other region on earth has as many high bridges as China’s remote Western Province of #Guizhou

The province is now home to more high bridges than every other country on earth combined

By 2020, Guizhou will have more then 250 bridges over 100 meters high
Of the world’s 20 super-high spans that exceed 300 meters from deck to water, all are in #China except for 3

And #China didn't just invest in bridges

It constructed some of the most gorgeous highways in the world

This is Hepu-Napo Expressway in neighbouring #Guilin province

Mucho se habla sobre #China como "Faro" de todo ecosistema #Fintech, pero poco sobre su #Regulación el rol del Gobierno chino.

Esta tendencia a omitir al Regulador en el desarrollo del ecosistema #fintech en #China está escudada en que "son un Estado Socialista"

Abro hilo Image
1/ Vengo leyendo mucho sobre el desarrollo de este ecosistema y, principalmente, cómo el Estado se paró frente a gigantes como #Tencent, #Alibaba o #Baidu.

¿Acaso podemos ignorar que hoy #China es el ÚNICO país en todo el mundo con empresas que compiten con #Facebook o #Google?
2/ Sin duda esto tuvo un costo en términos de libertades y demás pero, siendo pragmáticos: lograron ser el ÚNICO país que no transfiere diariamente valor a mansalva a los gigantes #tech de occidente.

(es más, podríamos decir que cada vez más la ecuación es a la inversa)

Not sure how on the radar this is for you but the #Chinaflooding season starts in 13 days and it’s already a catastrophe.

An interesting analysis of the situation.

1.I watched Dr. Richard #Cheng in #Shanghai YouTube post. Dr. Cheng took the lead on the use of high-dose #VitaminC to counter the #Covid19 pandemic. Dr. Cheng reported that the Covid19 virus is mutating & there are now 8 strains that may make effective vaccines a challenge.
2. IMO anyone who thinks this will go away may be sadly mistaken. As Dr. Cheng has said, #VitaminC is cheap, easy to get and has no dangerous side effects that he reports up to dosages of 100 grams a day have only some GI disturbance side effects.
3. But dosage that is advised is about 5 grams a day while healthy. That dosage has no known side effects. IMO @DeptofDefense should immediately require each member be on a minimum of 5 grams a day.

If we can't end this attack we need to make it less able to kill us. @INDOPACOM

Los fármacos no siempre funcionan igual en hombres y mujeres, las dosis pueden diferir y la reacción a los mismos también puede variar.

#China struggled to reopen today- especially firms in the #globalsupplychain. Manufacturers dealing with a tangle of conflicting requirements that vary province to province, city to city. Most being asked to provide extensive prevention of #coronavirus before they can reopen.
#GuangdongProvince requires 4 steps:
1) set up prevention/control protocol 2) quarantine non-local/migrant workers
3) supply protective gear for all workers
4) conduct routine temperature checks/disinfection
Factories meeting demand can apply for approval from local authorities.
For those with factories in #Shenzhen, the city explains its application process here: sz.gov.cn/cn/xxgk/zfxxgj… #coronavirus

1) Are you using #postgres via #docker for mac?

Have you ever noticed `EXPLAIN ANALYZE` slowing down your queries by like 60x?

Let's dig into some #postgres and #linux internals to figure out what's going on! An accessible version of this thread is available at https://github.com/felixge/tweets/tree/master/postgres-docker-explain-analyze
1b) This thread is also available on GitHub: github.com/felixge/tweets…
2) First we need some understanding of how `EXPLAIN ANALYZE` works.

Looking through the PostgreSQL code, it basically boils down to:

start = clock_gettime()
row = node.nextRow()
node.time += clock_gettime() - start

[THREAD] China Coronavirus Outbreak
A deadly virus is spreading from Asia, affecting hundreds of people and resulting in dozens of deaths, in what may become a gloabal health epidemic. This thread contains news about the outbreak.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus #WarWatch
On Dec 30, 2019, Chinese authorities confirmed cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A team of national experts was sent to carry out detection tests. Patients at a local seafood market were put in quarantine.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus
Liu Youning, a professor of epidemiology and respiratory medicine, told the Global Times that the #coronavirus found in #Wuhan appears to be far less serious than the virus that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (#SARS) or the Middle East respiratory syndrome (#MERS).

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

Late night GF3 sesh.
Tesla will not repeat the mistakes they made from the Model 3 ramp up again. They have had two years to learn from the launch and tweak/critique every aspect of production, from supply to manufacturer to assembly to QC to delivery. Different mistakes may...
...be made, but their impact will be limited compared to early “production hell”. I haven’t looked at the Chinese appetite for automobiles by quarter, by there is a good chance GF3 can ramp from 0 to full known production values in less than 6 months.
Again, these predictions are based on actual performance on the previous quarter but could look like this:
Q4 5000 conservative 20000 liberal
Q1 30000 con. 60000 Lib.
Q2 50k con.
Q3 70k con.
Q4 100k??

Liberal estimates for Q2-4 are not provided because IDK 🇨🇳 🚗 market size.
