"On July 31, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an updated version of the Naval Doctrine of the Russian Federation. This is a top-tier strategic-planning document, elaborating Moscow’s official approach to the maritime domain."…
"New doctrine divides the world into 6 directions, though their order has changed. Arctic and Pacific directions, previously mentioned in the 2nd and 3rd places, have been upgraded to the first two spots, at the expense of the Atlantic direction, now numbered third."

So, how does a container ship capsize at the dock?

1. Sea Eagle is not a container ship but a general cargo vessel designed to carry oversized and non-standard cargo. Plus, she is small, only 88 meters (260 ft) in length and can carry 256 TEUs...
2. She appears to be loaded with 40, if not 45 foot containers on her main deck. These containers can carry up to 30 tons. This is significant for a ship that can only carry 4k tons of cargo.

3. At the start of the video, a pierside containers handler is removing a box...
3...It appears all the containers on the stbd side have been removed along with the top boxes of the next inboard row.

4. This would shift the center of gravity to the port side (where the containers remain) & center of buoyancy to the stbd side (light side)

Hi, my name is Maersk Denver and I am the most unlucky container #ship in the world.

Why? Because I am the ship that famous photo of #EverGiven aground in the #Suez Canal was taken from.

I was a couple of week far from my destination when Julianne Cona shot it.

Thread 🚢
She is one of our marine engineer.
And, yes, she is a #woman.

By the way I think you should definetely thank Julianne for letting the #world #economy know they were f*cked, in the exact moment it happened.

I am starting: thanks to make us famous, J!
But I was telling you...
...about our luck.

Well, we were quite ahead of #EverGiven when we approached the Suez Canal.

We would be already in the #Mediterranean Sea by now if they had not cut us off entering the Suez canal!

What happened next is already #history.
They stranded just in front of us...

Focus on #China & #Russia = 2 most significant geopol threats to global peace & prosperity—

Clear stakes:

"China has implemented a strategy & revisionist approach that aims at the heart of the US’ #maritime power."…
"... our three #Sea Services have watched with alarm the growing #naval #power of the People’s Republic of #China & the increasingly aggressive behavior of the Russian Federation.

Our globally deployed naval forces interact w/ #Chinese & #Russian #warships & #aircraft daily."
"We witness firsthand their increasing sophistication and growing aggressiveness. ... The People’s Republic of #China represents the most pressing, long-term strategic threat."…

In my address @lagoshsc forum 2020, I specially congratulated the Permanent Secretary of @lagoshsc Dr. Ademuyiwa B. Eniayewun for his courage to address the issue of bureaucracy in Lagos State health system.

@jidesanwoolu @drobafemihamzat @JokeSanwoolu @followlasg @lshaofficial
In eliminating excessive bureaucratic processes @LSMOH is using digital platforms which makes operations easier and faster as seen in other parts of the world.

This is done by putting in place the Lagos #SHIP - a smart health information platform for Lagos State health sector.
However, there are other issues in our health system that needs be addressed to reduce bureaucracy ; they are, infrastructure, man power deficiency, and budget efficiency.

There’s the need to take budget efficiency a step further by not just looking at the amount drawn out but

My interview w/ @GrecianFormula:

With its continued dev't of #ASBMs & associated targeting architecture, #China continues to work on changing the game in #SCS & beyond—but so too does US w/ its own developments & countermeasures.…
The game is afoot, and much is at stake.

But by no means is the game over for @USNavy, in the #SouthChinaSea or anywhere else.

My #BottomLine: there’s no cause for declinist defeatism.…
In @Princeton @PUPolitics's PhD program, I had many great colleagues, incl. @ChongJaIan; w/ @osmastro & @AdamPLiff to follow!

I focused my research on #Chinese #Aerospace Development. Historical summary:…

#BottomLine: PRC prioritized #ballistic #missiles.

A tanker created a 60-kilometer-long oil film in the North Sea-Baltic Canal. A tanker flying the flag of #Singapore was identified as the suspected polluter. The ship is no longer allowed to sail.
After consulting the public prosecutor in Kiel, a security deposit was ordered against the captain. The police have not yet been able to provide any information about the extent of the environmental damage.
It is also unclear whether the ship's crew may have deliberately dumped oily products into water or whether there was a technical defect.

THREAD: 1/n. I have a self-quarantined central #Ohio client who was on the #CarnivalValor cruise with this man. I believe that our #Columbus community needs to know of her experience with #Carnival and @OHdeptofhealth.

I will be updating this thread as I find out more.
2/ My client is female, between 45-50 years old. Before I continue, people should know that she has been in public places in central #Ohio for days. She found out from a friend this morning who had seen this morning's @ColumbusHealth #COVID19 announcement. Places she's been:
3/ Sunday March 9th: @Costco at #Polaris; #Costco in #PlainCity; #Aldi in #Delaware.

Wed. March 12th, after work: @TommysPizzaOhio but not yet sure which location.
