Amritanshu Mukherjee New DelhiJune 20, 2019UPDATED: June 21, 2019 10:04 IST HIGHLIGHTSMotorola is using a Samsung-made Exynos 9609 chipset.Motorola One Vision has been positioned in the premium midrange segment in Brazil.One Vision separates itself from other smartphones with its uniquely wide and tall 21:9 display.Motorola has been talking a lot about the One Vision since its launch last month in Brazil. The One Vision is supposed to be Motorola’s first premium offering above the G7 series this year and will succeed the Motorola One Power from last year. The One Vision separates itself from other smartphones with its uniquely wide and tall 21:9 display – something that we have only seen on Sony smartphones lately. The One Vision is Motorola’s offering in the midrange segment.The One Vision has been positioned in the premium midrange segment in Brazil, with prices starting at approximately Rs 23,000. However, Motorola has been aggressive with its pricing in the Indian market and it is expected that the One Vision could be priced lower to take on the Samsung Galaxy M40. Therefore, we could probably see the One Vision being priced at around Rs 20,000 in India.For premium midrange smartphone, the One Vision has a lot to offer. The One Vision sports a premium glass design with exciting gradient colours. The Moto dimple at the back also houses the fingerprint sensor – isn’t that cool? With its 21:9 format display, the One Vision adopts a slender profile. The display measures 6.3-inches and uses an IPS LCD panel. It gets a hole-punch style camera on top, thereby avoiding a display notch.Inside, Motorola is using a Samsung-made Exynos 9609 chipset and pairs it with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. The phone is part of the Android One program which means Motorola could deliver two guaranteed Android updates as well as timely security updates. A 3500mAh battery power the device and Motorola’s proprietary 15W TurboPower charging is meant to fill up the battery faster.advertisementThe One Vision also boasts of good camera performance. For the rear, Motorola has used a combination of a 48-megapixel Samsung GM-1 sensor with F1.7 lens and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. For the front, there’s a 25-megapixel camera for selfies. Both cameras rely on Pixel Binning technology.The Motorola One Vision is only available in a single variant in Brazil – 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. India is also expected to get the same variant. The One Vision could rival the Galaxy A50 and Redmi Note 7 Pro in India.ALSO READ | Xiaomi Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro India launch in one monthALSO READ | Dyson Pure Cool Me goes on sale in India for Rs 25,900ALSO READ | Amazon launches all-new Kindle Oasis in India starting at Rs 21,999Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Story Highlights Governor of the Bank of Jamaica, Brian Wynter, says that while challenges remain, the business climate in Jamaica is conducive to attracting increased private sector investment.“We need all our entrepreneurs to see it, understand it, and believe it. We need for them to believe it will last and to also have the faith to start investing or to invest even more,” Mr. Wynter said.He was addressing journalists and members of the business community during a media briefing held at the Hilton Rose Hall Hotel, Montego Bay, on May 19.He also encouraged the private sector, notably those engaged in tourism, exports and competitive import substitution, to “create more jobs and more sustainable growth.”Mr. Wynter said he fully expects the Montego Bay business community to grasp and appreciate the moment, considering that the city, once the poorest part of the island, was built on faith.He cited successful risk takers such as Jamaican hotelier, Gordon “Butch” Stewart and Entrepreneur, Tony Hart, who was responsible for starting the Montego Freeport industrial hub in 1967.“When American Oscar Hammerstein wrote the famous words…for the iconic musical, the Sound of Music in 1959, he was staying at his Jamaican property Highland House, right here in Montego Bay. Now, in 2017, the hills are reverberating with the rhythms of economic possibilities, because Jamaica is no longer a long shot; it is now the smart money,” Mr. Wynter stated.In the 2016 Doing Business Report of the World Bank, Jamaica was named among the 10 most improved economies for doing business in the world.The country’s ranking moved from 71st to 64th in the world, placing Jamaica as first in the Caribbean in respect of the ease of doing business, and sixth in Latin America and the Caribbean. He cited successful risk takers such as Jamaican hotelier, Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart and Entrepreneur, Tony Hart, who was responsible for starting the Montego Freeport industrial hub in 1967. Governor of the Bank of Jamaica Brian Wynter, says that while challenges remain, the business climate in Jamaica is conducive to attracting increased private sector investment. “We need all our entrepreneurs to see it, understand it, and believe it. We need for them to believe it will last and to also have the faith to start investing or to invest even more,” Mr. Wynter said.
zoom After it saw a growth rate of 24% in 2017, Poland’s Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) Gdansk aims to continue growing this year as well.During the year, DCT Gdansk’s volumes increased to just under 1.6 million TEU as the company launched full operation of the second terminal T2, doubling its capacity.“This facilitated the continued growth of our relationship with the 2M Alliance and then in May the arrival of the OCEAN Alliance. Having the world’s two largest Alliances provide direct calls with the largest ships in their fleet is a real testament to the vision of building DCT Gdansk,” Cameron Thorpe, CEO of DCT Gdansk, said.Continuing to plan growth, DCT has initiated its ‘T2B program’, due to roll-out over the next 3 years.The program includes two additional ship-to-shore cranes arriving in the third quarter of 2018, enabling the T2 berth to deploy 7 cranes by the end of this year. In support there will be an expansion of the yard area with 5 additional all-electric e-RTGs.Thorpe said that over the next two years there will be a second fairway approach to the Port of Gdansk, to which DCT will have access.This will further reduce the time from pilot-station to berth, enhancing the total port turn-around time of the ULCV’s calling.“Longer-term, DCT has considerable ability to expand both berth and yard footprint, so we can effectively continue to grow in-line with market demand,” Thorpe concluded.
Of the 13 dead, nine were killed when a landslide occurred in Bulathsingala. Thirteen people have been reported killed in weather related incidents so far, the Government information department said.The Government information department quoted Home Affairs Minister Vajira Abeywardena as saying that 4 people are also missing.
Resultantly, the former Member of Parliament Geetha Kumarasinghe lost her status as a Member of Parliament, due to confirmation of her dual citizenship in a local court of law. Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has been urged to verify the citizenship status of all Parliamentarians.Rohana Hettiarachchi, the Executive Director of the People’s Action for Free and Fair Elections (PAFFREL), has in a letter to the Speaker, noted that in terms of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, it is now law in Sri Lanka, that a person with citizenship in two countries – holding dual citizenship – cannot become a Member of the Sri Lanka Parliament. Hettiarachchi said that the court ruling regarding Geetha Kumarasinghe, makes an indelible turning point in the annals of Sri Lankan politics.“In the more recent past, within the Parliament, as well as among the general public outside, an extensive dialogue was created focusing on the question of Members of Parliament holding dual citizenship.I t reached a climax, when various kinds of defensive statistics and stories were brought out relating to such members,” he said. Hettiarachchi further noted that having carefully noted the high degree of negative public impact caused through the socialization process of such arguments, PAFFREL, as a responsible monitoring organization, decided to discover the true situation regarding this matter.At the outset, PAFFREL sought information from the Controller of Immigration and Emigration about the Members of Parliament holding dual citizenship.PAFFREL was told that excepting for Mrs. Geetha Kumarasinghe, to no other Member of the present Parliament, Dual Citizenship Certificates have been issued by that Department. Therefore, in order to dispel this social suspicion and to protect the honour and dignity of all Members of the Parliament, Hettiarachchi urged the Speaker to take steps to obtain from each Member, an affidavit affirming that he/she has no status of citizenship in another country (dual citizenship). (Colombo Gazette) “By all means, we believe that such information does not reveal for certainty or with clarity, about those who have not divulged information relating to their status of dual citizenship. By now, especially after the Geetha Kumarasinghe episode, a large scale social discussion and equally serious suspicions have emerged among the public about this all important issue. If, by any chance, the people’s representatives in Parliament do not reveal the true situation as regards their dual citizenship status, it is nothing, but a huge fraudulent act committed on the people of this country and more so on the dignity of the Parliament. They, who are the legislators are ignoring the very legislation, they were responsible to formulate,” PAFFREL said. “Sri Lanka’s Parliament is a unique institution, which formulates legislation and enacts policies for the citizens, while also handling the affairs of the country’s fiscal management. Under such circumstances, if persons holding dual citizenship sit in Parliament as members, it is doubtful, whether they would be wholeheartedly concerned with the wellbeing of the people of Sri Lanka, due to their dual interests. Also, whether they would act in the best national interest of Sri Lanka, or whether they would represent the other country of their citizenship in a decisive situation, is a matter of high importance for our country and the people,” Hettiarachchi said.

TORONTO — The Toronto Real Estate Board is suing property listings website Mongohouse for $2 million, alleging that the anonymously-run page is illegally accessing, copying and distributing proprietary data.The board, which is the largest in Canada and represents more than 50,000 realtors across the Greater Toronto Area, filed the lawsuit last month in Federal Court asking for an immediate and permanent injunction for the popular website to be taken down.In the statement of claim, TREB alleges that Mongohouse participates in an “orchestrated strategy to avoid and elude” the board’s multiple attempts over the past two years to shut it down.TREB CEO raises concerns over private homeowner info being posted online after data releaseTREB gives go ahead for realtors to post GTA home sales data on their websites starting todayTREB warns realtors not to falsify sales data after $3.1 million listing shows $1 priceIt claims the website is infringing on the board’s copyrights by “employing various techniques to illegally data scrape” information that it provides to its fee-paying members through its internal multiple-listings service (MLS). This includes data such as new property listings, descriptions, sold prices and photography.It goes on to allege that Mongohouse is profiting from advertisers by its daily “unauthorized access” of this information, which it then displays on its website for free.The board said Thursday it could not comment further on the legal action because the issue was now before the courts.Meanwhile, efforts to contact Mongohouse were unsuccessful. A statement of claim has not yet been filed with the Federal Court.In the filing dated Sept. 12, TREB says it doesn’t know how its information is being accessed, but it believes it is the source because it placed “unique information” in its system and saw it appear on the Mongohouse website within 24 to 48 hours.“All of the information on the Mongohouse website for this purpose is only available from the TREB MLS system,” said the claim. “There is no other means available for Mongohouse to obtain the information that is available and made publicly accessible through the Mongohouse website.”The board argues that it has spent “tens of millions” of dollars to create and maintain its MLS system and that it suffers “injury and irreparable harm” when Mongohouse “continues to pass itself off as offering the same services…”In addition to naming Mongohouse.com and Mongohouse.ca in its lawsuit, the claim also names the website’s unknown operators (John and Jane Doe); web server Digital Ocean Canada Inc. and its U.S. based subsidiaries, as well as Sheng Lan Mai who is also known as Maxim Mai, of Richmond Hill, Ont. The board claims that Mai is a software engineer at IBM and “appears to be the original author and creator of Mongohouse.” It is unclear whether he is currently the operator of the website.The lawsuit is asking that the court order all information related to the operations of Mongohouse be turned over, including financial dealings and communications. TREB is claiming $2 million in damages and an additional $100,000 for copyright infringement, as well as legal costs.The court documents detail the elaborate efforts by TREB to take down Mongohouse since it became aware of its existence in September 2016.The Mongohouse website, which has a reported 50,000 registered users, uses a map function to display new listings and sold prices across the Greater Toronto Area. It also provides property photos and descriptions of listings. Users had to log into with passwords to access the information.The website has been offline since Oct. 1.“MongoHouse.com is unavailable until further notice. At the moment, Mongohouse is unable to comment and/or share more information until further instructions given,” said the message.In August, the Supreme Court of Canada announced it would not hear a case where TREB was fighting to prevent home sales data from being posted on realtors’ password-protected websites. TREB had argued for seven years at three judicial bodies that allowing the data to be released would create privacy and copyright concerns, but the Competition Bureau insisted keeping the numbers under wraps was anti-competitive and stifled innovation.Since then, a handful of realty brokerages have made sales price data available on their websites.
Newspapers and the role they played in paving Toronto’s streets will be at the heart of a public book launch held in downtown St. Catharines Saturday.Phillip Gordon Mackintosh, of Brock’s Department of Geography and Tourism Studies, will launch his latest book, Newspaper City: Toronto’s Street Surfaces and the Liberal Press, 1860–1935, at the event, which takes place from 3 to 5 p.m. at Mahtay Café & Lounge.Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and published by the University of Toronto Press in 2017, the book looks at the role of daily newspapers in the transformation of Toronto’s urban landscape. It was recently reviewed by the Literary Review of Canada.The book celebrates the completion of a complex project that examines Toronto’s historical construction of public space, and in particular its streets and sidewalks, through the pages of local, liberal newspapers.“Newspapers are, in many ways, a weak primary source,” Mackintosh says. “City people, now and in the past, have had a vexed relationship with their newspapers, as have historical critics of newspapers and journalism. What happens when you write a book grounded in newspaper research?”The newspapers’ “flawed ‘facts’” weren’t Mackintosh’s only challenge. He also had to spend a great deal of time with heartbreaking material.“For children, the street was a playground in cities that had few parks and no play spaces,” Mackintosh explains. “By the end of the 1910s, however, municipal engineers and city councils had repurposed the street as a site of dedicated and segregated mobility. This put fast moving automobiles on slow moving streets, and people — especially children — died by the score.“Months spent researching the violent death of children, many only three years old, left me many nights sleepless and agitated,” he says.Mackintosh noted that papers like Toronto’s Globe acknowledged that the issue of paving streets for automobiles was one of competing public goods — child welfare versus mobility.“Yet, the Globe never used its pages to demand a municipal policy to restrict cars on the streets teeming with children and their play.”Saturday’s book launch will feature live music and refreshments, and copies of the book will be available to purchase. Everyone is welcome to attend.Event detailsWhat: Book launch for Newspaper City: Toronto’s Street Surfaces and the Liberal Press, 1860–1935.When: Saturday, Dec. 2 from 3 to 5 p.m.Where: Mahtay Café & Lounge, 241 St. Paul St., St. Catharines.

AN IRISH COMPANY are set to sign a license agreement with a world renowned American clinic to develop a test to detect preeclampsia in pregnancy.Mayo Clinic is a US non-profit worldwide leader in medical care, research and education.Irish biotech startup, Inform Bioscience, will sign the agreement with Mayo Clinic next week to develop a test to detect preeclampsia much earlier in pregnancy.It plans to develop a simple urine test using biomarker technology that has the potential to revolutionise prenatal care programmes globally.Preeclampsia affects three million mothers worldwide every year and is associated with premature births and infant illness including cerebral palsy, blindness, epilepsy, deafness and lung conditions.There is no effective detection method for the risk of preeclampsia and the cause is unknown.A number of Senior Executives from the Mayo Clinic will travel to Ireland from the USA to sign the licence agreement with Inform Bioscience in the Biomedical Diagnostics Institute at DCU, Dublin.The licensing agreement is also supported by Enterprise Ireland.Read: Royalty gives up bid for Irish biotech firm Elan>Read: Pharmaceutical firm announces €44m investment in Waterford plant>
Grandir ou se reproduire, la vipère d’Orsini a appris à faire la part des chosesLa vipère d’Orsini, une espèce rare, protégée et menacée d’extinction en France, possède une stratégie de reproduction originale. Elle alterne une année de reproduction avec une année au cours de laquelle elle ne se reproduit pas.Après une analyse de données récoltées pendant 30 ans, une équipe de chercheurs du laboratoire Ecologie et évolution, du Centre de recherche en écologie expérimentale et prédictive (CNRS/ENS) et de la Sorbonne vient de faire une étonnante découverte sur la vipère d’Orsini : ce petit serpent insectivore possède un mode de reproduction pour le moins original.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Pour en apprendre davantage sur cette espèce rare, protégée et menacée d’extinction en France, des scientifiques ont étudié, depuis le début des années 80, 160 femelles tout au long de leur vie (12 ans en moyenne). C’est ainsi que les chercheurs ont découvert que dans cette population, une femelle adulte alterne avec une grande régularité les années de reproduction et de non reproduction. Autrement dit, elle ne se reproduit qu’une année sur deux. Publiée sur le site de la revue Functional Ecology, l’étude montre qu’avec une reproduction tous les deux ans seulement, les femelles peuvent stocker des graisses et se concentrer sur leur propre croissance qui reste possible tout au long de leur vie et qui influe sur leur fécondité. En effet, plus une vipère est grande, plus elle peut avoir de petits. Ainsi, après une année consacrée à son développement, la femelle concentre toutes ses ressources sur la reproduction. Le taux de succès de la reproduction est alors très élevé et l’impact physiologique immédiat sur les mères est réduit. De fait, contrairement aux autres espèces chez lesquelles les femelles apparaissent très amaigries après la mise-bas, la stratégie de la Vipère d’Orsini lui permet de produire une portée de qualité sans en être particulièrement affectée.Ajouté à cette découverte, la mise au point d’un modèle mathématique a confirmé que la sélection naturelle pouvait effectivement favoriser un comportement alternant ainsi les années de reproduction et les années de croissance. “Ces travaux pourraient permettre d’expliquer de nombreux autres cas de reproduction par intermittence chez d’autres espèces animales et végétales”, estime ainsi le CNRS dans un communiqué.

Another torrent of selling gripped Wall Street Wednesday, sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeting more than 600 points and erasing its gains for the year.The tech-heavy Nasdaq composite bore the brunt of the sell-off, leaving it more than 10 percent below its August peak, what Wall Street calls a “correction.”Technology stocks and media and communications companies accounted for much of the selling. AT&T sank after reporting weak subscriber numbers, and chipmaker Texas Instruments fell sharply after reporting slumping demand.Banks, health care and industrial companies also took heavy losses, outweighing gains by utilities and other high-dividend stocks.Disappointing quarterly results and outlooks continued to weigh on the market, stoking investors’ jitters over future growth in corporate profits. Bond prices continued to rise, sending yields lower, as traders sought safe-haven investments.“Investors are on pins and needles,” said Erik Davidson, chief investment officer at Wells Fargo Private Bank. “There has definitely been a change in sentiment for investors starting with the volatility we had last week. The sentiment and the outlook seems to be turning more negative, or at the very least, less rosy.”

If you’ve had your fill of wacky and zany Nintendo NX mock-ups, take a look at the official Nintendo NX reports and make up your own mind on what the Nintendo NX will look like. Game & Watch TiiVii1/19Wearables are the next big thing. That is, if you ignore virtual reality, augmented reality, and literally everything else that is more interesting than wearables. Which means the Nintendo NX is surely a wearable watch screen with a stylus that unwraps into a TV controller.Photo Credit: Neogaf.<><> Now that reports of the intricacies of what the Nintendo NX actually is have broken, would-be Nintendo employees have come out of the woodwork to show off their design skills.Unfortunately, a lot of the designs we’ve come across are the definition of asinine. Detachable controllers, touch screens, and joysticks are running rampant. Some of these creations don’t even have the essentials for a controller to function. We understand that some people want to get back to basics, but your controller might need a few buttons. Just a thought.That’s not to say some of these aren’t on the right track. Nintendo has revealed the “hybrid” nature of the NX, which plans to marry the handheld and home console landscape into one unified, almost tablet-esque experience. Reports confirm the NX will include detachable controller units on either side of the display, using a docking station to bring the NX’s gameplay into the living room. How do they plan on the merging of the easy, on-the-go play sessions with the hardcore couch gaming experience? The big reveal is just on the horizon. Until then, put on your speculation hat and let your imagination run wild with these beautifully crass creations. Who knows, maybe the real Nintendo NX has been right in front of our eyes the whole time.

The new agent is a small molecule radiotracer which allows the imaging of apoptosis, a fundamental biological process of controlled cell death, from the early stages of the death process. Given the broad, cross disease role of apoptosis in a wide range of medical disorders, molecular imaging with [18F]-ML-10 is expected to play an important role in early detection of disease, monitoring of disease course, assessment of effect of treatment or development of novel therapies. In particular, [18F]-ML-10 may assist oncologists in evaluating tumor response to treatment much earlier than conventional imaging modalities such as CT or MRI. This may allow clinicians to identify earlier the most effective treatment within their therapeutic arsenal and provide personalized, safer and more cost-effective care. Among other clinical fields of potential applications of [18F]-ML-10 are cardiology and neurology.[18F]-ML-10 illustrates the capability of nuclear molecular imaging to become a central discipline in healthcare and to deliver the clinical and economic benefits of Personalized Medicine.The long-term, global agreement includes the collaboration and joint-funding by IBA and Aposense of phase III and subsequent clinical development of [18F]-ML-10. In addition, the companies will jointly market and sell [18F]-ML-10, with IBA primarily focusing on its core PET imaging and nuclear medicine market, and Aposense marketing to the referring clinical specialist market. Aposense will manufacture the proprietary ML-10 precursor and IBA will 18F-label and distribute the final drug product to clinical sites through its global network of PET radio-pharmacies. IBA and Aposense will share in revenue and development costs. Specific financial terms were not disclosed. Multi-center phase II clinical trials of [18F]-ML-10 are underway in a number of leading cancer centers in the United States, and are expected to be completed in 2010, to be followed by phase 3 trials during 2011/2012 for obtaining regulatory approvals.This agreement expands the relationship established between IBA and Aposense in August 2008, when they entered into an agreement for 18F-labeling and distributing of ML-10 by IBA for Aposense’s multi-center clinical trials.For more information: www.iba-worldwide.com and www.nst.co.il FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 26, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Awarded $30 Million by U.S. Department of Energy NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes LLC has been awarded $15 million in a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of… read more X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.
