Nokia 9: Carl Zeiss cameras, Snapdragon 835 and everything else we know so far

first_imgNokia’s comeback into the mobile game has been the talk of the town for the last few weeks. After releasing the budget oriented Nokia 6, 5 and 3, the company is now set to release their first Android flagship smartphone.Dubbed Nokia 9, the smartphone is set to be packed to the gills with features and is expected to come with an Iris Scanner, Carl Zeiss cameras and a QuadHD OLED display. Nokia will surely have bring their A game if they hope to drive customers away from flagships like the Galaxy S8, OnePlus 3T and LG G6.Here is everything we know about the Nokia 9 so far:Also Read: Nokia’s decision to stick with stock Android is a stroke of geniusSpecificationsLeaks and rumours point towards the Nokia 9 being a specification monster. The device is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor- the Snapdragon 835 paired with the Adreno 540 GPU, a 3,800mAh battery with QuickCharge 4 support and a whopping  6GB of RAM.Additionally, the smartphone is set to come with a Quad HD 5.5-inch OLED display, 64/128GB of internal storage and the latest iteration of Android – 7.1.2 Nougat – out of the box.Carl Zeiss camerasNokia has historically been known for making great cameras through their partnership with Carl Zeiss. We have seen an example of Nokia’s imaging prowess through iconic smartphones like the N95 which was one of the first in the world to come with a 5MP camera and the Nokia 808 PureView which came with a whopping 41MP camera sensor.advertisementWith the Nokia 9, HMD Global may be re-starting that successful partnership. Rumours point towards the Nokia 9 coming with a 22MP dual lens Carl Zeiss rear camera paired with a 12MP front facing camera for selfies.Iris scannerThe Nokia 9 is rumoured to come with an Iris Scanner like the one found on the recently released Samsung Galaxy S8. An Iris Scanner, which was first seen on the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7, allows users to unlock their smartphone with their eyes.IP68 dust and water resistanceMaking smartphones waterproof seems to be the norm these days. Following in the footsteps of the LG G6, Sony’s Xperia series and Samsung Galaxy S8, the Nokia 9 is expected to come with IP68 dust and water resistance.Price and availabilityThe Nokia 9 is reportedly set to be priced at around EUR 749 in European markets, $699 in the U.S. and Rs 44,999 in India. The fact that the Indian price is the cheapest amongst the lot points towards how serious a market India is for Nokia’s comeback.Nokia has historically been known for making great cameras through their association with Carl Zeiss. With the Nokia 9, HMD Global may be re-starting that successful partnershipDue to Snapdragon 835 supply issues, the smartphone is not expected to be launched before Q3 2017 – sometime between July and August. If you cannot wait to get your hands on a Nokia device, fret not as the already announced devices are set to go on sale soon.The 2017 refresh of the legendary 3310 is expected to be launched globally in April, with the Nokia 6, 5 and 3 receiving a staggered release throughout May.Two more high-end smartphones from NokiaAlongside the Nokia 9, rumours of two more high-smartphones from Nokia have also been circulating around the Internet. Called the Nokia 8 and Nokia 7, they are expected to slot in below the Nokia 9 in Nokia’s smartphone line-up and be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 660 chipset.While the Nokia 7 is expected to come with a fullHD display, the Nokia 8 is expected to bump things up a notch with a Quad HD panel. Both smartphones are also expected to sport a metallic unibody design and run Android Nougat out of the box.Also Read: Nokia 3310 (2017) vs old Nokia 3310: What has changed in 17 years?last_img read more

Virat Kohli doesn’t have game reading quality like MS Dhoni: Coach

first_imgIndia skipper Virat Kohli has often said that he is lucky to have MS Dhoni in the team and the latter’s childhood coach Keshav Banerjee has also harped on the fact that the former India captain is the perfect mentor in this relatively young team.Speaking to IANS, on the sidelines of the launch of the MS Dhoni Cricket Academy clinic, Keshav said that Dhoni’s tactical acumen is unparalleled and that the wicket-keeper is the perfect guide for Kohli when it comes to reading the game and making strategic moves.”In game reading and tactical approach, there is no one like Dhoni and Kohli also does not have that. So, Kohli can always fall back on Dhoni if he wants to take any advice. If Dhoni would not have been part of the Indian team, there would be nobody to help Kohli as he needs time as captain,” the coach said.There have also been a lot of talks about Dhoni’s batting position in the Indian team as he no longer enjoys the role of a finisher and Keshav said that the former skipper should come in at no.4.”When he bats at no. 4, he takes time as he has time. When he bats at no. 5 or 6, he has to hit from the word go as runs are needed after all. Then he has to take risks. I feel Dhoni should bat at no. 4 in the World Cup. It will be the team management’s decision, but that’s my personal opinion. If he bats at no. 4, the other batsmen can play freely after him,” he explained.advertisementWhile pundits feel that Pant deserves a chance in the Indian team and should have been in the World Cup squad, Keshav begs to differ. “It is too early to give him a chance. India has huge bench strength. He should be given a chance after the World Cup,” he said.Asked if Dhoni will hang up his boots after the World Cup, the coach said: “Do you want him to retire (laughs)? You have seen how fit he is. That’s the main thing. When Dhoni will retire, even his wife and father don’t know.”Also Read | No cricketer has served India like MS Dhoni: Kapil DevAlso Read | IPL 2019: MS Dhoni wants batsmen to do better with 1 chance left for final berthlast_img read more

FOX Sports President Addresses Hiring Of Urban Meyer

first_imgA closeup of Urban Meyer during an Ohio State football game.PASADENA, CA – JANUARY 01: Head coach Urban Meyer of the Ohio State Buckeyes looks on during a play in the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual at the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2019 in Pasadena, California. (Photo by Jeff Gross/Getty Images)One of the biggest storylines to follow for next season in college football will be Urban Meyer’s transition from coaching to commentating. With his tenure at Ohio State over, the legendary coach is now part of FOX Sports.Meyer will serve as an analyst for FOX Sports during the college football season. As for the Buckeyes, they’ll now be led under Ryan Day.Although the move to bring Meyer into the media industry occurred months ago, Mark Silverman just spoke about his recent hirings. Silverman has been the President of National Networks for Fox Sports since January 16, 2018Not only did they sign the championship-winning coach, but FOX also has Reggie Bush on its side. The former USC star should provide great analysis for those watching at home, while Meyer can dissect strategy from coaches.During his conversation about hiring Meyer and Bush, Silverman said “We will be looking to make a major play in college football.”This makes sense considering that Silverman must compete with broadcast crews from ESPN, CBS Sports and other media companies.Mark Sliverman, FOX Sports, president, national networks, talking about hiring Reggie Bush and Urban Meyer for CFB Pre-Game show at #sbjwcs. “We will be looking to make a major play in college football.”— Liz Mullen (@SBJLizMullen) April 4, 2019FOX Sports is creating a new college football pregame show, aimed to compete with ESPN’s College GameDay.The new pregame show will feature Meyer, Bush, Brady Quinn and Matt Lienart. It will be hosted by Rob Stone.“With a head coach that won three national titles in 10 years, two of the most successful college quarterbacks in recent memory and one of the sport’s most electric running backs, our new college football pregame show has the game covered from all angles,” Silverman said. “Not only will this all-star cast resonate with viewers because of their recent on-field accomplishments, but this group is going to have a lot of fun discussing the games each week.”last_img read more

American cities look to Vancouver for overdose crisis response model

first_imgVANCOUVER — As an overdose crisis began taking shape in Denver, Colo., one of the places the city’s leaders looked for answers was north of the border.Coun. Albus Brooks says he hopped on a plane to Vancouver last year before putting together a recent proposal to open what could become the first legal supervised consumption site in the United States.“I went out there personally to meet with council members, the chief of police, community members, business folks — I interviewed them all,” he said.Last month, Denver council approved a proposal for a two-year pilot project allowing a safe consumption site, which lets people use drugs under the supervision of staff who are trained in overdose response.The program must win approval from the state legislature, which is now under Democratic control after the November election. Earlier this year, the Republican-controlled state Senate killed similar legislation.Other U.S. cities, including San Francisco, Seattle, New York and Philadelphia, have also expressed interest in opening supervised injection sites. California lawmakers passed a measure that would have protected workers and participants in a San Francisco pilot program from state prosecution, but Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed it in September.Brooks said Denver council reviewed models in hundreds of other jurisdictions and also visited Barcelona. But it took several lessons from Vancouver, including the effectiveness of free drug testing and the importance of working across sectors and with many stakeholders.He said he was struck by the high number of overdose deaths in Vancouver, which has been the epicentre of the crisis in Canada, but also the general consensus on the importance of harm reduction as part of a continuum of care that has been harder to achieve in the United States.The BC Coroners Service recorded 369 overdose deaths in Vancouver last year, while Denver recorded 163 drug-related deaths, according to Colorado’s vital statistics program.“Everyone seemed to say that harm reduction models were effective and an important part of an overall strategy,” Brooks said. “That’s not understood in the United States.”Support hasn’t been universal in Canada either. When Insite opened in Vancouver in 2003, making it the first safe consumption site in North America, some argued it would just enable addicts. And as recently as August, the Progressive Conservative government in Ontario under Premier Doug Ford announced it was halting the opening of new overdose prevention sites pending a review. But data suggests they have been effective. According to the BC Centre on Substance Use, a systematic review of 75 peer-reviewed journal articles on safe consumption sites found that no overdose-related death was ever reported within a site involved in the studies.A 2011 study in Vancouver also found a 35 per cent decline in overdose deaths in the area around Insite, the centre said.While the BC Coroners Service does not collect data on “life-saving” measures, spokesman Andy Watson said he believes significantly more people would have died in the crisis if not for harm reduction services.“We understand the death toll probably would have tripled, based on information we’ve received from other agencies,” he said.Insite has been a popular destination for both Canadian and American politicians considering the model, with visitors also coming from nearby Seattle, said Carrie Stefanson, spokeswoman for Vancouver Coastal Health, which co-manages the site with non-profit PHS Community Services Society.“They come on kind of a fact-finding mission or a tour. We have people coming all the time,” she said.Sarah Blyth, who runs the Overdose Prevention Society on the city’s Downtown Eastside, said it can be overwhelming to host so many visitors. There are visits almost every other day from politicians, grassroots organizers, nurses, students and others curious about the model — from as far away as Belgium and France and as close as other B.C. cities.“It’s a bit too much, to be honest, but at the same time it’s so important because they get to bring back education and what we’re doing to other places,” Blyth said.“And we get to discuss how it’s helpful and answer questions about how you can do it — how it’s easy and affordable and not hard to do.”Amy Smart, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

China denies detained Canadian his diplomatic immunity

first_imgBEIJING — China says a former Canadian diplomat detained in China last month does not enjoy diplomatic immunity, rejecting a complaint from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.Trudeau said last week that Chinese officials are not respecting the diplomatic immunity of Michael Kovrig. He was arrested along with Canadian entrepreneur Michael Spavor on vague national security allegations after a top Chinese executive with telecommunications giant Huawei was detained in Canada on Dec. 1 at the request of Washington.However, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters Monday that Kovrig is no longer a diplomat and entered China most recently on an ordinary passport and business visa.Kovrig, a Northeast Asia analyst for the International Crisis Group think-tank, took a leave of absence from the Canadian government.The Canadian government has been able to gain access to Spavor and have said it wants to continue to meet with him.Global Affairs says it remains deeply concerned by the arbitrary detention of the two men and reiterates a call for their immediate release.last_img read more

Ms Monopoly board game sees women players get paid more

By Sonia ElksLONDON, Sept 10 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Monopoly is turning the gender pay gap upside down with a new version of the board game where women earn more than men, its creators – inspired by female trailblazers – said on Tuesday.Ms Monopoly replaces the game’s familiar mustachioed real-estate mogul on the box with his female investor niece, as players compete to collect inventions made by women, including bullet proof vests and wifi, rather than properties.But perhaps the biggest change is that women players will get higher payouts of Monopoly money than men, said its makers Hasbro toy firm – though men can still win if they play their cards right.“We want to recognize and celebrate the many contributions women have made to our society and continue to make on a daily basis,” said Hasbro spokeswoman Jen Boswinkel.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.The game will give female payers a boost with a higher payout to start investing at the beginning of the game, plus a higher payout every time they pass Go, according to stockists at Walmart chain store.It’s a far cry from real life, with women working full-time in the United States last year earning 80% of what men take home on average, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.The game is intended to highlight women who have challenged the status quo, said Hasbro, adding that women held only about 10% of all patented inventions.Hasbro marked the launch by handing out thousands of dollars to young women working on innovations including a device that helps detect lead in drinking water and an invention to detect sinkholes before they occur.It comes after a Polish designer created an all-female version of the board game “Who’s She?” with the aim of encouraging children to learn more about famous women.(Reporting by Sonia Elks //news.trust.org) read more

Meeting the challenge of lower TCOs in slurry pumping

first_imgThe cost of running a slurry pump system is determined by multiple factors that vary depending on the mining environment. GIW wants its customers get the lowest possible total cost of ownership (TCO) for the equipment and its service engineers work tirelessly to improve two important cost factors: pump wear and efficiency. In the last issue of The Flowsheet, GIW examined how optimising efficiency when pumping slurry is different from that of pumping straight liquids. Here, the experts look at some design elements that make GIW pumps work efficiently with slurry and explain how GIW partners with its customers to maximise slurry system efficiency in their individual environments.To get the lowest possible TCO, a solids pipeline system needs to operate at the highest practical concentration that the mining process allows. Graeme Addie, GIW’s VP of Engineering and R & D, explains that a centrifugal pump has a point at which the speed of the pump and the flow are optimised for peak performance: the best efficiency point quantity (BEPQ) or ‘sweet spot.’“A pump efficiency curve is an inverted parabola with zero efficiency at zero flow and a maximum efficiency at a flow determined by the hydraulic geometry of the pump,” says Addie. The efficiency curves and their peak values vary for different pumps. A lot of factors determine this maximum efficiency, but, in general, bigger, wider pumps have the highest BEPQ values at higher flows.Pump design can play a significant part in improving efficiency and reducing wear. For example, a correctly designed set of curved section vanes can increase efficiency overall as can certain types of collector shells.Other variables such as thicker vanes and deep-clearing vanes, however, reduce efficiency but provide worthwhile improvement to the wear life.Changing pump speed also changes the efficiency of a pump according to a principle called the affinity law. Addie explains: “When we change the speed of a pump, the flow at the same efficiency changes in the ratio of the speed change, and the head varies as the square. For example, doubling speed at a given percentage of the BEPQ provides double the flow and four times the head at approximately the same efficiency.”This so-called affinity law change is one of the main ways the performance of a pump can be varied to accommodate different head quality (H-Q) duties. (For an explanation and video showing how pump speed can affect wear, see the article Why Do Slurry Pumps Experience High Wear at Low Flow Rates? in GIW’s latest issue of The Flowsheet.)Different geometric hydraulic designs can achieve the same H-Q by operating at different speeds. For example, a large-diameter slow-running pump can achieve the same H-Q as a smaller-diameter pump running faster. The smaller, faster-running pump is initially less costly. But the large, slower-running pump typically has better suction-liner and impeller wear. Liner and impeller wear often determine when parts have to be changed, and if parts must be changed frequently, the costs of downtime can be significant.The best way to optimise the efficiency of a pump system is to select pumps that best match the process requirements and provide acceptable wear life while operating near their best efficiency point. For example, if a customer is seeing significant pump wear and downtime cost is a factor, then low specific speed pumps should be selected over faster-running, small-diameter, lower-cost alternatives. Even with an initially higher investment, the customer will see significantly reduced TCO over the life of the pump.Any time there is a change in the mining process, the duty flow and head should be re-evaluated and a speed change or wet-end change made. GIW’s service experts work closely with customers to evaluate their systems and provide continual process improvements. www.giwindustries.com.last_img read more

Saying No to the Patriarch

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram American and Australian Archdioceses delivered a resounding “No” to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew’s proposal for dioceses around the world to sign-off one of their properties to the patriarch, and for bishops to take up Turkish citizenship. Archbishop Demetrios the Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America officially responded to the Patriarch’s suggestion by pointing out that the legal structure of the Archdiocese in North America does not allow for the devolution the diocesan property to another state. Neos Kosmos is aware from sources within the Archdiocese of Australia that Archbishop Stylianos has yet to respond officially to the proposal but that he was also against the proposal. Sources have said to Neos Kosmos, that Archbishop Stylianos saw the proposal as “part of a game played by Turkey” and that “Australian Archdiocese property will not become Ankara’s real-estate.” The Turkish state does not recognise the Greek Patriarchy in Istanbul, (Constantinople), as an ecumenical institution as Italy does the Vatican. To rise to the position of Patriarch one can only be ordained if they are a Turkish citizen. Given the diminishing number of Greek Orthodox living in Turkey, there is real fear that the Patriarchy of the Greek Orthodox Church may be left leaderless in years to come. The Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan had agreed to allow any Greek Orthodox clergy to become Turkish citizens after discussions with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.

Suspect appears in court on gangrelated attempted murder

first_imgA 21-year-old man linked with the Sureno street gang appeared Monday in Clark County Superior Court on suspicion of first-degree attempted murder and assault of a gang associate in August.Gregorio Robert Chavez, who goes by the street name, “Frost,” was apprehended earlier this year in California but fought his extradition back to Washington, said Camara Banfield, deputy prosecuting attorney.Two other suspects, Stefan A. Duran, 21, and Connie C. Gadberry, 20, were apprehended at the same time. They agreed to extradition and were arraigned earlier this year on first-degree attempted murder and assault. Their trial is Feb. 11. Chavez will be arraigned on the same charges Friday.Judge Barbara Johnson set bail at $500,000 due to Chavez’s extensive criminal history and flight risk.Chavez is accused of shooting Jose Reyes in the right leg and foot either late Aug. 24 or early Aug. 25 in a possible retaliation for an assault that occurred at Reyes’ home, according to a probable cause affidavit.Reyes told police that he was walking on East 18th Street near Norris Road when a vehicle approached him, the affidavit stated. Reyes said he was “called out” by a man in a rear passenger seat in the vehicle. Reyes identified the man as “Frost.” As Reyes attempted to flee, he was shot, the affidavit stated.Paris Achen: 360-735-4551; http://twitter.com/Col_Courts; http://facebook.com/ColTrends; paris.achen@columbian.com..last_img read more
