    Qatar & OPEC

    So... with current sky high oil prices, why do OPEC countries still keep the tap tight, while they see Qatar benefiting enormously from leaving the OPEC? Now not only Qatar's risky LNG expansion, which some called a failure just a year ago, scoring gold, now their oil exports are back to...

    How Singapore Got Its Manufacturing Mojo Back

    That's Chartered Semi former fab, and new ones being an extension of their operation. It took firing Sing bureaucrats running the fab for it to start thriving. I also have no idea how the managed to associate robotisation with labour intensity. There are simply no 300mm fabs in the world...

    China establishes world's largest higher education system with 240 million college graduates

    We will run into trouble. You see there is a very visible historical tendency: too many elites + any major shock = revolution. Qinghua/BeiDa grads almost never go to work in the government, let alone the CPC, despite a lot of them being children of CPC members. CPC sends its kids to America...

    China establishes world's largest higher education system with 240 million college graduates

    Middle class is the enemy of high class My 2 best engineers didn't even have a uni degree, but just 2 year technical college in Henan. One was a legend, preferring to work on paper when everybody was using CADs, he can make such stuff from plastic, and fibreglass with just guesswork which...

    Ex-PM Mahathir says Malaysia should claim Singapore and Riau Islands

    Rather the opposite, Russia fear not so much Ukrainians, but Russian Ukrainians turning anti-Russian. They annihilated the most pro-Russian city in the whole of Ukraine, and their proxy states of DPR/LPR been turned into hellholes worse than Russia itself. Russiophiles, or russophobes doesn't...

    Opinionated - China Chipping Away to Semiconductor Dominance

    Indeed, but you can't complain that CPC can't subvert the West properly. Megatons of state money is still spent every years of this kind of lousy spycraft. Not only can't they steal the technology properly, but they don't even know which one to steal. I wouldn't wonder if the next benefit from...

    Russia-Ukraine War - News and Developments

    Interesting developments today: It's said that Russians are running out of 122mm ammo because... the only functioning 122mm factory in the world was in Ukraine. While Ukraine lost a hack a lot of 122mm ammo, it's stocks must still be bigger.

    Retaking Crimea will deny Russian a free reign with airpower over South Ukraine, it costs more than Marioupol. Given the extreme symbolic importnace of Crimea to Russia, they will likelly pull from Donbas, or at least divert huge portion of forces. The destroyed bridge is all they need to...

    Ukraine doesn't have much forests in much of the country, but tons of small villages in the east every few kilometres allows enemy to disperse, and hide. East of the country is much more hilly, making long range direct fire easily avoidable.
