Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts... Terms of reference for the review  1. How do we facilitate a
"185 wide-ranging recommendations for us to explore", says @sajidjavid (p6). Gulp! Time for some coffee...

"systems that ensure #underrepresented groups are well represented" may (partly) refer to this "landmark review", which got off to a slow start:

The flood of foreign Govt visitors post-Ukraine, suggests, that they are finally trying to understand #India & #GOI #policy from the "horses mouth" (instead of seeing it through the biases of neo-colonialists and their Indian agents).

Tonight we have briefed all our CEO, COO & education executive members on the government's Net Zero Strategy

This is a landmark moment for the next generation, for our economy, and the public service leaders and organisations. Academy trusts have a big role to play

A thread⬇️
1. This really matters to young people. Nearly 60% of young people surveyed by Bath University felt very worried or extremely worried by climate change. They expect leadership from government, but - crucially - they expect leadership from the organisations they attend every day
2. Great trusts don't wait on a gov. Some are already setting zero carbon targets, others have strategies in place, some are investing in making their estates greener - & already generating returns. See @PalladianTrust @N_StarAT @northstartrust for eg's.

"Firstly the economic crises highlighted the imbalance within the #EMU, the flaws of the 'no bailtout' clause, which meant richer countries could only intervene as a last resort, and that the @ecb was not properly empowered against crises"

@NavalWarCollege distinguished grad guides leaders through #IndoPacific w/ Geo-#History, #Strategy & Visual Communications

And by "#Visual #Communications," I mean #MAPS—beautiful, self-crafted maps. That should have existed already, but didn't.

For fresh perspective from the innovative #cartography @RhodesCartogra1 creates, check out: thinkinginspace.info

Prepare to have your horizons expanded!
My favorite example:

@RhodesCartogra1's pathbreaking piece @NavalWarCollege won 2019 @thejointstaff #Strategic #Essay Competition's Strategic #Research Paper category.

Cogent geo-history-grounded insights for US strategy toward PRC.

Underlines the Bipartisan nature of #US strategic acquisitions .The Presidential Election has nil effect on acquisition plans or #Defence preparedness. In contrast #India loses 1-2yrs each time a govt changes . This fallacy must be corrected if we are to grow as a global power.
This can be easily corrected by
1) A national #Defence council with one representative from each state govt, CDS & the CAG that can vote on acquisitions in election years.
2) A fixed minimum allocation of 1.5% of GDP for CAPEX that must be legally mandated for all govts .
The thing is in India the Lok Sabha elections put all LS MP seats into elections . That said, your idea could work with the RS MPs taking over under the aegis of the @rashtrapatibhvn I guess!

#NEPAL SPECIAL THREAD
Nepals (N) #diplomatic relationship with China (C) was established in 1955. In 2005 King Gyanendra had proposed C as an observer in #SAARC, this had strained N's relationship with India (I). After abolition of Monarchy C's interference increased greatly. 1/8
Xi Jinping visited N in 2019. The last time when a C President had visited N was 23 yrs ago. Before his visit a special group of #CCP had organised events & sessions with N Politicians & Govt to explain their version of #Communist Ideology & Xi's objective. 2/8
In his speech he said that C will convert N from a land locked country to a land linked country. The largest project under Belt & Road Initiative (#BRI) is the railway line connecting N & Tibet (T). There has been NO progress & even financial modalities haven't been discussed.3/8

Surely every serious national security strategist understands the distinction btwn Govts Geopolitical decisions and th military's detailed scenario planning & action program. A govt can decided on basis of expected value of outcome or worst case scenarios-the latter is paralyzing
2/ns The critical issue in China-India conflict is that,as of now (2020), #China controls the #escalatory ladder. So India's #National #Security Apparatus has to make assumptions about when and how #CCPpla will escalate, if it loses the first few steps on its escalatory ladder!
3/ns The worst case scenario for us is therefore the one in which after loosing previous escalations, #CCP China escalates to a full fledged war/attack on India, by shifting US-facing troops and highest quality equipment towards India. This has proved paralyzing for past Govts!🤔

Thread/ As one of the biggest regional escalations in the history of the #Syria war unfolds, here are a few thoughts on the Turkish-Russian/Syrian triangle of fighting in #Idlib – who will back down
1/Evidently #Russia has many limitations and concerns when it comes to an armed confrontation with #Turkey, something which has become increasingly apparent with its decisions in Syria, it does not want to enter a direct war with Turkey
2/#Russia has always proceeded with caution with its regional competitors or partners in #Syria, be that NATO, Turkey, or even Israel, it prefers to take a neutral or passive stance, for example the Syrian S300’s have not been activated and use of them is clearly not allowed.

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

"Under a secretive deal signed last month with a provincial government in the [#SolomonIslands], a Beijing-based company with close ties to the CCP has secured exclusive development rights for the entire island [of #Tulagi] & its surroundings."

nytimes.com/2019/10/16/wor…
"The island of #Tulagi served as a South Pacific headquarters for Britain then Japan, and during #WorldWarII, its natural deepwater harbor made it a military gem. Now, #China is moving in with plans to effectively take control."

nytimes.com/2019/10/16/wor…
"Even compared to previous #Chinese development deals in nearby countries — including a wharf in #Vanuatu, whose terms were not publicly released for years — the #Tulagi agreement is remarkable for both its scope and lack of public input."

What is so valuable that it’s worth killing and dying for? (A thread)

In war, we have to measure human costs & compare it to the cost of doing nothing. This is hard work.

Recent work by @Amnesty/@Airwars/@danmahanty/@annieshiel helps to show us why. (1/13)
@Amnesty/@Airwars recently released a report on civilian casualties (#CIVCAS) in the fight for #Raqqa in which they claim that the coalition (@CJTFOIR) killed 1600 civilians (compared to the coalition claim of only 159) from June-Oct 2017. (2/13)

raqqa.amnesty.org
They go so far as to assert: “The Coalition launched strikes likely to cause excessive harm to civilians and failed to distinguish between military targets and civilians. … Disproportionate or indiscriminate attacks are war crimes.”

Is this right? (3/13)

"I want to warn the world about an unprecedented danger that’s threatening the very survival of open societies.

…I’ll focus on #China, where President #XiJinping wants a one-party state to reign supreme."

project-syndicate.org/onpoint/the-ai…
"Xi is trying to consolidate all the available info about a person into a centralized database to create a 'social credit system'..people will be evaluated by algorithms that will determine whether they pose a threat to the 1-party state. People will then be treated accordingly."
"#China is not the only #authoritarian regime in the world, but it is undoubtedly the #wealthiest, #strongest & most developed in machine learning & #AI.

This makes #Xi the #most #dangerous #opponent of those who believe in the concept of #OpenSociety."
