Despite all the tough rhetoric, #Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, tells top political & military officials in a religious-type meeting an hour ago in #Tehran that #Iran does not want a war with #America.

Nothing surprising here. The ayatollahs long abandoned the slogan Great Satan for the #US and actively sought strong ties with #Washington under #Obama WH. In #Afghanistan & #Iraq, the #IRGC & Gen. Soleimani quietly cooperated with US military & intelligence, until recently.
In return, again under #Obama WH, the #US turned a blind eye as #Iran/#IRGC/#Hezbollah expanded influence from #Nigeria to #Malaysia, thru #Yemen/#Gulf, and hosted elements of #Taliban+#AlQaeda as guests inside Iran, but without allowing them to be operational.

I was so fixated on sharing @NewNaratif's research article on the 50th anniversary of May 13 in #Malaysia yesterday that I forgot to tweet about another May 13 anniversary: the 65th anniversary of the anticolonial students' movement in #Singapore.
On 13 May 1954, a group of students in #Singapore delivered a petition to the colonial authorities opposing military conscription. Hundreds of their peers assembled at the foot of Fort Canning Hill in solidarity. They were met with brutal repression by riot police.
This was a significant moment for the anticolonial movement in #Singapore. It galvanised the students. They linked up with other anticolonial activists, such as union workers. The movement grew.

If the actual perps of #MH17 were to try to blame the #Russians, would @GovernmentRF be interested in expert testimony of pilot #whistleblower #FieldMcConnell @fieldmcc ?

@RusEmbUSA
Barbara, Dan and Russian Federation,



In the case of the two recent B #737Max events @Boeing has been quoted as saying they would remove the #BUAP or #BHUAP..... same device as BUAP but #Honeywell was involved in the creation/installation.
I have patent history going back from 1953 to 2013.

When #MH370 occurred representatives of the Malay government contacted me and asked me how I could create the YouTube the same day the aircraft appeared to be lost.

I told them truthfully that Boeing had been installing...

» SCMP: Can #Malaysia strike a deal with China for its East Coast Rail Link?
If forced to take sides in the high-stakes geopolitical rivalry and trade war between the United States and China, Mahathir would prefer the economic largesse of Beijing.

“When China was poor, we were frightened of China. When China is rich, we are also frightened of China,” Mahathir said.

“I think we have to find some way to deal with China.”

Brought this article by @hillaryrosner in @NatGeoMag w/ me to Surat Thani, Thailand as I pondered this quote: “Palm oil is unavoidable. Can it be sustainable?” Agree? Read. Ponder & Follow this thread for more…

#SDGs #Sustainability #PalmOil
In case you ever wondered where #palmoil comes from. Have a look at the #palm oil fruit here. From my visit to Surat Thani, Thailand to learn more about #sustainability in this industry. Read more here via @hillaryrosner on.natgeo.com/2E8fwW8
DYK: The oil palm tree—Elaeis guineensis—is not native to Asia but comes from West & central Africa. At the heart of the “sustainable #palmoil” debate though are #Indonesia & #Malaysia, which account for 85% of all production. 📷: young #palm in Thailand

"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."

Hello, everyone! Let's start our #thread on #child #entrepreneurs, both in #Malaysia and abroad.

We'll talk about the success stories as well as how to foster their development 😊 Let's go! Feel free to add on to the thread with your own opinion and sharing.
Latest in Malaysia is the story of Ferris. Ferris merupakan usahawan cilik yang terpengaruh secara positif dengan siri Upin dan Ipin! It's good to see how entrepreneurship in an animated series can piqued children and their interest in entrepreneurship!

If you ask if there are more of such stories in #Malaysia, there are!

11 y.o Elisa Ahmad Sayuti and her friends got inspired by both their participation in Kelab Usahawan Cilik as well as seeing their parents who are also #entrepreneurs!

Mahathir Mohammad at @CFR_org. First question on Chinese economic influence in #Malaysia. "Previous government borrowed too much money."
Says he explained to China that Najib was the problem and not Beijing. But now he's talking about payment pathways privileging Chinese SoEs over local contractors. "That is not good for us. Malaysian contractors have no role to play."
"Colonialism can take many forms. Countries can be subject to pressure through economic systems and that is a form of colonialism also." - Mahathir

Hello, everyone and welcome back to our weekly #GEMChats! This week, we'll discuss the results of the poll on whether #celebrities make successful #entrepreneurs!

Let's begin, shall we?

#startup #womenentrepreneur #business #showbiz
So recently @KylieJenner sparked a heated debate on how celebrities are successful at entrepreneurship when she was announced to become the youngest self-made #billionaire ever.

cnbc.com/2018/07/11/kyl…

#KUWTK
Some feel strongly that she only dethroned #MarkZuckerberg from that position because she is part of the #Kardashian and her #entrepreneurial venture has multi-level of safety net and it allows her to #scaleup at an exponential rate.

Let's discuss this thread in this week's #GEMChats for #entrepreneurs. What are some common mistakes that #startups, especially #fashion startups make that makes them less viable?
Let's breakdown the mistakes into sections of a business. These sections can take form within the Operational, Connectivity and Knowledge aspect of the #startup business. #entrepreneurship #womenentrepreneur

So let's discuss this. Feel free to mention us and let's talk!
Firstly, Knowledge.

Studies have found that 3 out of 4 #startups fail. Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) reported that fashion is one of the most difficult industries.

The lack of knowledge prior to starting and while running a #fashion startup can be a costly mistake.

The first trip abroad that I paid for, was to #Malaysia and #Singapore. I've never understood the average Nigerian's obsession with "Jand" and "Yankee". So, as soon as I could afford to travel abroad, I chose somewhere exotic. #Travel #TravelBae
When I was growing up, I had a strong image of who I wanted to be in life. I wanted to be exposed and have distinct encounters. I wanted to explore unusual things and meet unusual people. #TravelBae
#Singapore & #Malaysia did that for me. I met people I wouldn't ordinarily connect with and listened to them talk about their society and daily lives. I returned from the trip knowing there was a world bigger than #Nigeria. There were people with national problems too. #TravelBae

Let's discuss this topic for this week's #GEMChats on #entrepreneurs and #entrepreneurship.

This week's topic is #Venture #Capitals and what is funding like for #womenentrepreneurs!

Please follow us, RT, reply and Like our #thread to discuss this topic.
In June 2017, @HarvardBiz published an article questioning the discrepancy in VC funding for #entrepreneurs of different genders.

In the US, #female entrepreneurs own 38% of the businesses in the country yet receive only about 2% of all venture funding in the whole country!
Some of you answered the poll that the reason for this phenomenon is that there is a lack of female VCs.

The #data however speaks otherwise; the number of female VCs has increased to 7% from 3% in 2014 and yet the funding gap has only increased.

Why does this happen?

Today, @USTreasury #OFAC slapped terrorism supporter designation on Mahan Travel and Tourism, a #Malaysia-based company, for acting on behalf of Mahan Air of #Iran. treasury.gov/resource-cente…
“Mahan Air is the airline of choice for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force, facilitating its support to terrorism across the Middle East." says @stevenmnuchin1.
"Mahan’s regular flights to Syria are used to prop up the Assad regime and deliver weapons, foreign fighters, and Iranian operatives who sow violence and unrest across the region,” adds @stevenmnuchin1.
