Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari had envisioned leaving office with vast amounts of shiny new Chinese-financed infrastructure built throughout the country. That's not going to happen. China has lost its appetite for large-scale development projects in Nigeria leaving some $15 billion of rail and other initiatives unfunded.But that doesn't mean that Nigeria still isn't very important to China's broader Africa agenda. Chinese companies are attracted to the large consumer market, its political heft at the African Union and the fact that Nigeria is home to some of the continent's largest technology hubs.This week, Efem Ubi from the Nigerian Association of International Affairs joins Eric & Cobus from Lagos to discuss Nigeria's complex relationship with China and where it stands today.JOIN THE DISCUSSION:Twitter: @ChinaAfrProject | @stadenesque Facebook: www.facebook.com/ChinaAfricaProjectFOLLOW CAP IN FRENCH AND ARABIC:Français: www.projetafriquechine.com | @AfrikChineعربي: www.akhbaralsin-africia.com | @AkhbarAlSinAfrJOIN US ON PATREON!Become a CAP Patreon member and get all sorts of cool stuff including our Week in Review report, an invitation to join monthly Zoom calls with Eric & Cobus, and even an awesome new CAP Podcast mug!www.patreon.com/chinaafricaprojectSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

John Loar is responsible for all day-to-day business operations of MCB. He has 30 years of experience in the real estate development, sports and entertainment fields. He led the acquisition efforts on behalf of investment groups for two Major League Baseball franchises and executed both the acquisition and sale of the Seattle Seahawks. Loar served as Vice President of Blackhawk Corporation, one of the country's largest residential and commercial real estate developers. Listen in! Key Highlights: [00:01 - 12:21] Developing Spaces for the Glory of Sports John Loar is the managing director at Music City Baseball, responsible for all the day-to-day business operations at the company. Nashville is a good location for a sports and entertainment complex because it has a high demand for tourist attractions and its economy is growing.  It is possible to have a variety of opportunities to participate in sports, and you want to look at a covered condition facility where you can accommodate that. . [12:20 - 31:44] Collaboration for Adding Value is the Key John talks about how his team is considering partnering with a historically black college or university in the area. MLB is trying to find ways to keep the fans engaged, especially younger ones, and they believe in creating a fan experience rather than just relying on game length or broadcast timing. However, there are still some challenges that new ballpark developments face, such as real estate issues and the potential for relocation. MLB is working to address these challenges.  [31:45 - 33:16] Closing Segment The conversation spurred questions from 25-year-old sports fans, so the population is engaged.  Key Quote: “How can you be a value-add?.. Tie in the hospitality component in that and add to the overall experience that people are having in this market, bringing their conventions, coming here for sports, and just coming here to see people perform." - John Loar Connect with John: Website: https://www.mlbmusiccity.com/ (https://www.mlbmusiccity.com/)  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nashvillestars/?hl=en (@nashvillestars) Connect with me onhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/brian-c-adams/ ( LinkedIn)!

There is not a single day when we don't hear about new funds being raised to finance the Energy Transition. As very few funds are listed on Exchanges, and it is estimated that more than 2/3 of the Energy Transition is currently financed on private markets, for which there is limited public available information.Today, we attempt to lift the veil on those VC (Venture Capital), PE (Private Equity), Infrastructure funds which all working to finance the Energy Transition. Who invest in those funds, how they are managed, how do they evolve, what is the “special relationship” between GPs (General Partners) and LPs (Limited Partners)? What will be the performance of the new “Climate tech” and “Decarbonisation” funds that have recently been launched.We also try to decrypt an increasingly complex regulatory environment where green labels are getting harder to get. Are new regulations a solution to greenwashing or just more bureaucracy? So, what the new profile of Energy Transition funds? We have invited Tiffany Howard, Principal at Capstone Partners (a Mizuho Company) to discuss the state of play. Capstone is one of the most active placing agents of the industry.

If you haven't read the book, 1984 by George Orwell, maybe you ought to really soon. We have a new group at the Department of Homeland Security. The administration is having a tough time deciding on a title... is it the Governance of Truth... Disinformation Board? The Department of Disinformation and what exactly are they doing and watching for?  I'll tell you what I think they're doing in this episode. 1984 by George Orwell is a whole different way of looking at life...dystopian, nightmarish, less free, more work... in a nutshell... totalitarian. The authority... the ruling class... the inner party... it seems that you must speak in quiet mumbling whispers, always afraid of Big Brother whose eyes are watching you at every turn. Keep to yourself. Don't think. Don't speak. Don't write. Do what you are told and everything may be okay. Just don't show dissent and if you do... they tell you that you are in serious trouble.  And when that happens the torture that you thought was the worst gets even more intense and all for having something called a thought-crime. Psychological and physical tough-guy tactics are the name of the game. Enjoy the wonders of what we have now... it may change quickly! And remember... You can not escape a prison if you know don't know you're in one.

This episode of Over the Edge features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Ali Fenn, President of ITRenew. Ali is a dynamic and innovative executive with a track record of success in business development, sales and product management. Fenn's experience spans numerous technology areas, including: enterprise infrastructure and the broader software and applications stack, storage and data management, security, mobile applications, hardware, and consumer web applications and services. She is currently a board member of Virtual Power, and strategic advisor for Energy Internet Corporation as well as Pentatonic. In this episode Ali Fenn, President of ITRenew, a circular data center services company that provides secure decommissioning and Sesame recertified rack scale solutions, breaks down the journey of technology from pre-use to post-use, and analyzes the amount of carbon emission produced throughout its lifecycle. She also talks about creating a circular IT infrastructure, demystifying hyperscale hardware, and causes of the ‘lion's share' of carbon emissions. She ends the episode talking about a need for the world's collective effort in solving unsustainable IT infrastructure.---------Key Quotes:“They've [most companies] done a really good job at being efficient in the use phase, but supply chain is the next big place we all have to look at. It's the lion's share of carbon emissions. It's not just equipment, it's cement and construction and everything else that goes into the physical infrastructure.” “I do believe that it's this topic of sustainability and in the context of IT infrastructure: It's our global collective imperative to solve it. And, at the same time, it's a huge opportunity, right? Data center infrastructure is going to fuel the transition economy. It's a trillion dollar opportunity. This is not just sustainability, it is not a tax. It's an opportunity if we do it right.” “The idea here is to demystify hyperscale hardware and demystify open hardware. It doesn't have to be harder, but there is some work that goes into making it accessible to the broader markets. And that's the stuff that we do. We ultimately deliver it in a way that the enterprises can run super fast. And, that time-to-value is a big one, especially right now in the supply chain that we're in. You asked about the value proposition of this stuff, well, it's available. We're not manufacturing this stuff, right. So that's a huge advantage right now.”---------Timestamps:(02:30) Early on in Ali's career(03:25) First Company Ali Joined(04:00) Transfer to Infrastructure and Hardware(05:50) What does ITrenew do?(07:53) Data Center Sustainability and the ‘3 scope' terminology associated with carbon emissions(09:40) PUE - Power Usage Effectiveness(11:42) Hardware Footprints - Sustainability and Circularity(15:45) Hyperscale data centers(20:30) ITrenew and recycling vs. refurbishing(25:01) What is Sesame?(25:40) Data Security(29:38) Edge is Everywhere - computing impacting sustainability and equipment(33:21) Ecosystem Wide Collaboration and Data Center Sustainability(35:56) Supply chain data publication(36:45) TCO Levels(39:00) Rack Density(40:00) Business Model Innovation and Circular IT Infrastructure(42:30) Edge Computing Effects(45:15) Solving IT infrastructure --------Sponsor:Over the Edge is brought to you by Dell Technologies to unlock the potential of your infrastructure with edge solutions.

These international expos featured miracle inventions and opportunities to explore new ideas, but also on display were useless gizmos, silly stunts (who's ready for a game of topless donkey ping pong?), and some of the most unattractive towers people have ever built.

These include how the idea of the "global common good" is used as a ruse by digital oligopolies to expand their private enclosures, how seemingly collaborative spaces can simultaneously be exclusionary as they regulate legitimate knowledge, how selfhood is being redefined online along with Eurocentric ideals, and how the web's political challenge is felt differentially by sovereign nation-states.

This week, we spoke with Liaizon Wakest. Liaizon grew up in an anarchist commune in rural America. They can be found climbing into dumpsters from Mexico to Kazakhstan looking for trash to make art with. In recent years they have been focused on research into ethical technology and infrastructural anarchism. For the hour we speak about the interoperable, open source ensemble of federated online publishing servers and platforms known as the Fediverse and its most popular component, Mastodon. This conversation takes place in the context of media hullabaloo about Elon Musk seeking to purchase Twitter, the paradigm in which a rich egomaniac can own the addictive social media platforms over which so much social and political life is engaged and what positives we can draw from alternatives like Mastodon and the Fediverse. You can find Liaizon's account on Mastodon (an analog of twitter) at @liaizon@social.wake.st or on Pixelfed (an analog of Instagram) at @wakest@pixelfed.social. And you can follow us on Mastodon by finding @TheFinalStrawRadio@Chaos.Social or by visiting https://chaos.social/@TheFinalStrawRadio in a web browser. Another interesting anarchist media project engaging the Fediverse is Kolektiva, which has a PeerTube instance at https://Kolektiva.Media (analog of youtube) and Mastodon at https://Kolektiva.Social where they're welcoming new users.
