Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro with notch display, Snapdragon 625, 4000mAh battery launching on June 25

first_imgXiaomi launched the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A with 18:9 display, MediaTek chipsets and Android Oreo in China last month. The Chinese OEM is in no mood to stop just here. It is working on the third Redmi 6 series phone, which will be slightly expensive and come with better specs than the ultra-affordable Redmi 6 and 6A. It is the Redmi 6 Pro. A new report notes that Xiaomi will launch the Redmi 6 Pro on June 25 in China. The report also suggests that Xiaomi may also launch the new Mi Pad 4 Android tablet alongside the Redmi 6 Pro.Ahead of the launch, we have seen Redmi 6 Pro subject to several rumours and leaks. According to renders that leaked last week, Redmi 6 Pro is expected to follow the latest trend to include an iPhone X-like notch on top of the display. This means Redmi 6 Pro will be the only phone under the Redmi 6 series to sport a notch. Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A include thick bezels on top and bottom. Not only that, it will also be the first ever Redmi phone and the third phone from Xaomi to come with a notch, Mi 8 and Mi 8 SE being the first and second one.Xiaomi has officially confirmed some specs of the Redmi 6 Pro last week. It said that the Redmi 6 Pro will come with a 19:9 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, and a massive 4,000mAh battery.Earlier last week, a Xiaomi phone with model number M1804C3CE got certified by TENAA certification site. Rumours suggest it could be the Redmi 6 Pro as the listing includes the same specs as confirmed Xiaomi for the Redmi 6 Pro.advertisementAccording to the TENNA listing, the Redmi 6 Pro will come with a 5.84-inch display with Full HD+ (2280 × 1080 pixels) resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. It reveals that the phone will come with thick bezels all around. Like the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, the Redmi 6 Pro is also tipped to run Android Oreo with MIUI 10 UI out-of-the-box, which Xiaomi launched very recently.The TENNA listing also reveals that the Redmi 6 Pro phone will come in three RAM and storage options. The base model with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. The second one with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The third and the most expensive of the three will come with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. The storage can be expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.The listing revealed the camera spec also. The Redmi 6 Pro is expected to come with dual 12MP cameras on the back. On the front, the phone will include a 5MP single camera. As confirmed by the company already, the TENNA listing also shows the phone with a massive 4,000mAh battery. Sadly, rumours say that it will not support fast charging.ALSO READ: Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro may be in works, Mi Max 3 and Mi Pad 4 also tippedIn terms of optics, the Redmi 6 Pro sports 12MP dual rear cameras and a 5MP single front camera. Below the camera, the phone will include a circular fingerprint sensor. Rumours say that from the back side the Redmi 6 Pro will look a lot like the Redmi Note 5 Pro.last_img read more

The Timberwolves defeated the Lakers 124-120.

(Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images)On Thursday, seven Kentucky players announced their intentions to leave school early and enter for the 2015 NBA Draft. Of that contingent, freshman forward Karl-Anthony Towns is projected to be the first player selected, possibly as high as the No. 1 overall pick. This afternoon, Towns posted on his Instagram the five-page handwritten thank you note he composed to the university, his teammates and coaches and the members of Big Blue Nation. It’s very heartfelt and definitely worth the read. He even included a postscript from his alter-ego Karlito. Towns is a “one-and-done” player with the talent level of a college senior and the maturity level of an NBA veteran. Incredibly classy gesture on his part.last_img read more

Fourfold Profit Jump for SCF

first_img Posted on March 21, 2016 with tags LNG, profit, Russia. Follow World Maritime News Share this article Twitter Facebook Newsletter RSScenter_img zoom Russia’s largest shipping company SCF Group (PAO Sovcomflot) saw a major upswing in its full-year results recording a net profit of USD 354.5 million against USD 83.9 million reported in 2014.The company said that its total future contracted revenues amounted to USD 8.5 billion.In addition, the company’s gross revenue increased by 7.6 per cent to USD 1,483 million and its time charter equivalent revenue (TCE) increased by 18.8 per cent to USD 1,240.1 million when compared to figures from 2014.According to Sergey Frank, President and CEO of Sovcomflot, the results for 2015 have exceeded the company’s expectations.“Such result was achieved to a great extent due to Sovcomflot’s ability to consistently execute its core strategy aimed at continued growth of our project business. Also contributing to our success were a solid technical performance and flexible chartering policy which helped Sovcomflot to take full advantage of the major rebound in the tanker markets,” he went on to say, adding that looking ahead the company’s core strategy remains unchanged.“At the same time Sovcomflot will continue to build a robust pipeline of fixed income projects in LNG and offshore services. In the short term, we remain cautiously optimistic with regard to the freight market dynamics due to the fundamental supply and demand balance.”Over 2015 Sovcomflot took delivery of two tri-fueled LNG carriers for long-term time charter to Royal Dutch Shell with three more slated for delivery in 2016 and 2017.As at 31 December 2015, Sovcomflot’s fleet comprised 143 owned and chartered vessels amounting to over 12.4 million tonnes DWT in total.

Trade tiff Alberta premier checking if Saskatchewans Wall breaking rules

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley gives a year end update in Edmonton Alta, on Wednesday, December 14, 2016. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says she is looking at whether Saskatchewan’s Brad Wall is breaking regional free-trade rules by offering incentives for oil and gas firms to move to his province. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jason Franson by The Canadian Press Posted Mar 30, 2017 12:14 pm MDT Last Updated Mar 31, 2017 at 8:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Trade tiff: Alberta premier checking if Saskatchewan’s Wall breaking rules RED DEER, Alta. – Cross-boundary political sniping between Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and Saskatchewan’s Brad Wall has escalated over Wall’s attempt to poach oil and gas firms.Wall’s government sent letters earlier this week to several Calgary-based energy companies offering them incentives to relocate to Saskatchewan. The government is offering to subsidize relocation costs, trim taxes and royalties and help find space in unused government buildings.Notley on Thursday called Wall’s plan short-sighted and self-defeating. She said it probably breaks regional free-trade rules as well.“The efforts of the province of Saskatchewan at this point likely do violate the New West Partnership as well as the (federal Agreement on Internal Trade),” Notley said in Red Deer where she was announcing a new courthouse.“If I was a business owner that resided in a smaller market, say Saskatchewan, that depended on an agreement that gave me access to a bigger market, say Alberta, I would be very concerned.“(The New West) trade agreement actually promotes back and forth of business operations that contribute to prosperity on both sides of the border. And you don’t touch one without pulling a really large string.”Notley said her government will review the trade agreement and decide how to respond, but won’t pull out of the deal, which reduces trade barriers among the four western provinces.The partnership allows for dispute resolution with fines that can reach $5 million.Speaking in Regina, Wall said he doesn’t believe he is violating any trade agreements, although he acknowledged he did not consult legal counsel before sending the letters.“We are letting folks know about existing policies. I think all provinces will continue to do that and have done that,” Wall said.“We haven’t got a specific relocation program we are putting in the window … that would be counter to the spirit of those trade deals.”Wall ruled out paying companies to relocate to Saskatchewan.“There would never be a direct payment to any company like that. We would use existing tax tools.”A tax incentive for companies that bring head office jobs to Saskatchewan was put in place years ago, Wall said. Companies could use money from it to defray things such as moving costs.Notley said Wall’s policy lacks leadership and vision.“In the long term, if we’re going to grow prosperity throughout Canada, what we need to do as government leaders is invest in growing businesses in our provinces, not trying to steal business from other provinces,” she said.“That’s a zero-sum game and it doesn’t help everybody out in the long run.”Scott Saxberg, CEO of Crescent Point Energy, said he received a letter from Wall this week, but it was nothing new. Wall asks him to move every time he sees him, he said.Saxberg suggested Notley change her approach to Wall.“She should be ‘Game on’ and try to attract more business to Calgary,” he suggested.Last summer, Saskatchewan cried foul after Alberta rejigged beer markups and introduced grants to help Alberta craft brewers.And last week the premiers traded barbs over their budgets.— By Dean Bennett in Edmonton.

Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme results in Australian coal cutbacks

first_imgAt least another 10,000 jobs will go, 16 coal mines will close and State Governments will lose substantial royalties as a direct impact of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS), according to independent analysis released by the Australian Coal Association (ACA). These job losses are in addition to thousands of coal jobs already lost since December as a result of the global financial crisis, according to ACA, Executive Director, Ralph Hillman. “Over the first ten years of the ETS scheme, the extra cost burden will ensure further job losses from mining companies cutting costs at mines that remain operating and jobs will also go as a result of both brownfield and greenfield investment moving to countries with lower costs than Australia,” Hillman said.The research, conducted by the economic consulting firm ACIL-Tasman, is based on a survey covering 86% of Australian coal production, including over 80% of coal exports. Key findings of the study include:The decision to exclude coal mining from the emissions intensive trade exposed provisions of the CPRS “was seriously flawed, as it was based on incorrect information”. The CPRS White Paper (p12-26) stated: “Since the majority of coal mines are not emissions-intensive, the government will not provide permits to the activity of coal mining”. ACIL-Tasman found that most coal production is from mines that are above the EITE eligibility threshold of 1,000 t CO2-e per million dollars of revenueWith an emissions intensity of 1,330 coal is well above the 1,000 threshold for eligibility for EITE permits. But instead of receiving a 66% permit allocation like other trade exposed activities such as LNG and chemicals, it receives just 4.5%. The industry under the current version of the CPRS will pay to the government over $14 billion in the first ten yearsThe CPRS will have a major impact on coal industry costs and competitiveness, with significant negative consequences for coal production, investment, employment and royalty revenueIn the first 10 years of the scheme:o 16 mines will close prematurelyo By 2021 there will be at least another 10,000 fewer people employed directly and indirectly in the coal industryo Coal production will be 22 Mt below business-as-usual and, as a result, state governments will forgo significant annual coal royalties.Hillman: “The ACIL-Tasman study shows quite starkly that the coal industry is being unfairly treated by its exclusion from the EITE provisions of the CPRS scheme. This exclusion will simply export jobs, market share and investment to our main competitors and the emissions will go offshore with the jobs, with no net change to global emissions – so there will be no environmental benefit. The coal industry accepts that there is a wide variation of fugitive emissions from individual mines, but it has provided the government with a simple solution to avoid any windfall gains through a specific coal industry allocation rule that ensures permits are directed to mines in accordance with their emissions rather than production. We are not asking for special treatment for the coal industry. We are seeking fair treatment that will prevent substantial Australian job losses and a loss of long-term investment in Australia.”last_img read more

Bank holidays Heres how Ireland measures up compared to other EU countries

first_imgBank holidays: Here’s how Ireland measures up compared to other EU countries We lag behind many of our neighbours when it comes to public holidays. 80,272 Views Apr 30th 2017, 9:30 PM Short URL Sunday 30 Apr 2017, 9:30 PM 55 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3363195 Share Tweet Email7 WE’RE HEADING INTO the first bank holiday of the summer tomorrow – but how does Ireland measure up in terms of public holidays, compared to other EU states? Source: Statista As you can see from the selection of countries shown in the chart above, we lag quite a few days behind countries like Austria and Sweden when it comes to public holidays.Here are the official public holidays for Ireland for 2017:New Year’s Day (1 January)St. Patrick’s Day (17 March)Easter MondayFirst Monday in May, June, AugustLast Monday in OctoberChristmas Day (25 December)St. Stephen’s Day (26 December)There have been a number of calls for an extra bank holiday to be added to the calendar in recent years.Plans put forward by Sinn Féin to celebrate the Easter Rising by introducing a new holiday were rejected by Arts Minister Heather Humphreys last year.However Humphreys’ Fine Gael colleague Brian Hayes has backed the idea of a new public holiday.Speaking last October the MEP said:Additional structured bank holidays can generate economic activity and jobs. The October bank holiday is the perfect example. Following its introduction we saw the growth and development of the Jazz festival in Cork and the Dublin City Marathon.The statistics in the chart above come from Eurostat, the EU’s statistics agency. They come with something of a health warning, however: certain countries don’t make up for a lost holiday day, should annual celebrations fall on a Sunday.However, that we boast one of the lowest tallies of public holidays in the EU is certain.The UK lags behind us with eight holidays. UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has promised to introduce another four public holidays if his party wins June’s snap election – including on St Patrick’s Day.Read: Jeremy Corbyn vows to introduce four new public holidays in UK > By Daragh Brophy Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Le médicament Ketum® provisoirement remis sur le marché

first_imgLe médicament Ketum® provisoirement remis sur le marché France – Alors que l’Afssaps avait décidé de suspendre la vente de 22 produits contenant du ketoprofène, le laboratoire Menarini se voit autorisé à remettre provisoirement sur le marché son gel Ketum®.D’après le Figaro, le laboratoire Menarini aurait déposé une requête en référé-suspension dont l’ordonnance lui permet de vendre à nouveau le gel Ketum. Cette mesure est, cela dit, provisoire, puisqu’une réévaluation communautaire est en cours. La décision finale sera prise dans le courant du premier semestre 2010.Ces gels antalgiques provoquaient chez les patients traités des réactions cutanées anormales, type eczéma ou cloques lorsqu’ils étaient exposés, même faiblement, à la lumière du soleil. Ces effets secondaires pouvaient entraîner des hospitalisations et des arrêts de travail.A deux reprises, l’Afssaps a dû modifier les indications de ces médicaments pour informer les patients de ces effets indésirables. Malgré ces précautions, des cas de réactions étaient toujours rapportés.L’Afssaps avait ensuite jugé que le risque de déclencher une réaction de ce type était supérieur à l’efficacité du médicament. Suite à cela, elle avait donc décidé de retirer du marché ces médicaments. L’un d’entre eux est aujourd’hui de retour : un come back inquiétant, qui risque de discréditer la parole des experts de l’Afssaps, pourtant plus compétents que les juges en matière de santé. Le 2 février 2010 à 13:25 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

80s Cult Classic The Lost Boys to Return as a TV Series

first_imgWhen it comes to the edgy-scary-funny 1987 film The Lost Boys, not only is there a cult following still going strong but its members closely track any news reports on a TV-series adaptation in development. Now, finally, those rumors seem to be true.The CW has ordered a pilot of a series based on The Lost Boys from Rob Thomas, creator of Veronica Mars and iZombie. Warner Bros Television and Gulfstream TV are also involved.Kiefer Sutherland. Photo by Gage Skidmore CC BY 2.0“The CW originally developed a series adaptation of the iconic 1987 Warner Bros horror comedy movie The Lost Boys with Thomas writing during the 2016-17 development season,” reported Deadline. “While the project didn’t go to pilot, the network brass remained very high on the title and had been looking to redevelop it.”This is good news to fans of the film, which stars Keifer Sutherland, Jason Patric, and Jamie Gertz, and was directed by Joel Schumacher.“The Lost Boys fans have gotten used to having their hopes dashed these past three decades. After all, rumors swirled for aeons about a possible sequel where Schumacher would return to direct a bunch of Lost Girls, and that project sadly never materialized,” reported Den of Geek.Jason Patric. Photo by Gage Skidmore CC BY 2.0“But when we heard that Rob Thomas, the man behind both the excellent Veronica Mars and iZombie, was behind a new TV series, we were pretty much immediately on board,” the writer continued.No casting choices have been announced.The original Lost Boys film had the tagline “Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It’s fun to be a vampire.” Its plot follows two teenage brothers, played by Jason Patric and Corey Haim, who with their widowed mother move to a California town filled with vampires, led by a sexy “young” gang.Photo by Gage Skidmore CC BY 2.0The film is considered a major influence on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Twilight, and The Vampire Diaries. The young actors in it were largely unknown, and after the film’s success went on to snare major parts in film and TV.In its original incarnation, the young people in the film were meant to be even younger, reminiscent of Peter Pan. The title is a reference to the companions of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. But the director, Joel Schumacher, hated the concept of child vampires, and made the characters older and sexier.Peter Pan statue by Sir George Frampton in Kensington Gardens, London.The town of Santa Cruz, California, was used as the location of the film. Several thousand of the locals answered the casting call for extras. Each year the film is screened near the boardwalk that features in the movie in order to enjoy it once more.The movie is also known for being the first one to star the two “Corey’s,” Corey Haim and Corey Feldman. Sadly, Corey Feldman was already using drugs while acting in the film. He is now an advocate for drug addict recovery and for stopping child sex abuse.Schumacher has credited the cast with the reason for its success, not just the young actors but the rest.
