About the battery, rumours suggest that the Mi Max 3 will be backed by a huge 5000mAh battery. But then, that being the case, if Mi Max 3 comes with a 5000mAh battery, it means that the device will have a smaller battery than the Mi Max 2 which sports a 5300 mAh battery setup.advertisementOther rumours reveal that the Mi Max 3 will come with a dual camera setup on the rear panel and single sensor of the front.

The phone will definitely run on the latest MIUI 10 on top of Android Oreo software like most new Xiaomi phones.As for the pricing, rumours say that the Mi Max 3 will fall under the mid-range segment. The handset is expected to cost somewhat around Rs 20,000. As of now, there are no words on when Xiaomi will bring the Mi Max 3 in India.Some reports claim that alongside the Mi Max 3, Xiaomi is also expected to launch Mi Max 3 Pro at the same event. The Mi Max 3 Pro is said to be a high down version of the Mi Max 3 and come with Snapdragon 710 processor, a 5500mAh battery, 20MP+8MP dual-rear cameras, and a 16MP selfie sensor.last_img read more

Australian Open: Naomi Osaka battles past Hsieh Su-wei in 3 sets to reach quarterfinals

first_imgNaomi Osaka smashed her racket into the court after losing the first set. She tumbled to the court when she tripped in the second.The US Open champion recovered both times and avoided slipping out of the Australian Open on Saturday with a 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 win over Hsieh Su-wei.The fourth-seeded Osaka got a warning from the umpire after she spiked her racket in frustrating after Hsieh took the first set with three breaks of service.The 33-year-old Hsieh, who plays with a double-handed grip on both sides and uses a mixture of spin and slice and drop shots to unsettle her rivals, has taken some top 10 players out of majors before. She reached the fourth round last year here, after beating Garbine Muguruzu, and at Wimbledon, where she beat top-ranked Simona Halep.The 21-year-old Osaka was getting flustered, unable to dictate rallies and seemingly unable to find a way to deal with Hsieh’s unusual style.She found a way back, though, from 4-2 down in the second set when Hsieh was one point away from a 5-2 lead.Osaka got an important break, rallying from 0-40 to win five straight points and converting it with a deep, powerful backhand that Hsieh barely retrieved but can’t keep in play.Hsieh had a breakpoint chance in the next game but couldn’t convert, with Osaka saving it with another backhand winner that reinforced the change in momentum. Apart from the tumble, when she rolled her right ankle early in the game as she served for the second set – she held up her thumb to let everyone know she was OK – Osaka was in control until the end.advertisement”Anything that I can do to stay here a bit longer, I tried to do,” said Osaka, who’d never been past the fourth round of a major before last year’s U.S. Open, where she beat Serena Williams in the final.Asked how she managed to get herself back into the contest against Hsieh, Osaka smiled and said it was simple.”I have fun every time I play,” she said, even if sometimes it doesn’t seem apparent. She quickly reminded the crowd: “You guys didn’t see me slam my racket, that’s not something that I did!”Meanwhile, Serena Williams will continue her bid for an eighth Australian title and an Open-era record 24th Grand Slam singles title overall when she plays Dayana Yastremska later Saturday on Rod Laver Arena. A win for Williams on day six of the tournament will set up a fourth-round match against either her older sister, Venus, or top-ranked Halep.last_img read more

FBI charges two men in 2016 ransomware attack that hit University of

first_imgThe Canadian Press CALGARY — The FBI says it has charged two men in Iran as part of an investigation into cyberattacks that targeted the University of Calgary and computer networks in the United States.The university paid a ransom of $20,000 after the 2016 attack to preserve an option to restore critical research data.The FBI says “SamSam” ransomware infiltrated computer networks in Atlanta, San Diego and Newark, N.J., as well as major health-care providers, the University of Calgary and others.Investigators allege the malware encrypted data and files, and the suspects demanded payment to restore access to affected systems in what the FBI calls “21st-century blackmail.”The agency estimates the cyberattacks caused $30 billion in damage to public and private institutions and that $6 million in ransom payments were extorted.Linda Dalgetty, vice-president of the University of Calgary, says the administration is grateful that charges have been laid.“The University of Calgary would like to thank the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Calgary Police Service, and all co-operating law enforcement agencies for their diligence and perseverance in investigating this matter,” she said Wednesday in a release. “We are thankful that law enforcement agencies take such criminal acts very seriously and were able to locate the perpetrators and issue arrest warrants.”Faramarz Savandi and Mohammad Mansouri are each charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, intentional damage to a protected computer and transmitting a demand in relation to damaging a protected computer.“The actions highlighted today, which represent a continuing trend of cyber criminal activity emanating from Iran, were particularly threatening, as they targeted public safety institutions, including U.S. hospital systems and governmental entities,” FBI spokeswoman said in a release.The agency acknowledged that both suspects are in Iran and are out of the reach of U.S. law enforcement.It said they can be apprehended if they travel and the United States is exploring other ways of bringing them to justice.last_img read more

Obama to appear at fundraiser hosted by Keystone opponent as decision awaited

WASHINGTON – With a decision looming on the Keystone XL pipeline, President Barack Obama is scheduled to appear at a fundraiser hosted by a prominent pipeline opponent.The president will speak Friday at a fundraiser in California hosted by the so-called green billionaire Tom Steyer, who has promoted and donated heavily to anti-pipeline campaigns.The White House played down any connection between the event and the president’s eventual decision on the Canada-to-Texas pipeline, when asked whether Obama had discussed Keystone with Steyer.“No. I’m not aware of any discussions they’ve had on that particular issue,” Josh Earnest replied during a White House briefing Wednesday.“Mr. Steyer is a well-known advocate for policies that are good for the environment. Particularly policies that will limit carbon pollution, and other contributors to climate change. And obviously the president has a historically strong record in confronting these issues.”It’s not the first time Obama has appeared at a Steyer-hosted event.Steyer held a fundraiser at his San Francisco-area home with Obama in 2013. He’s also hosted events featuring Vice President Joe Biden and 2016 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.At the 2013 event, Obama acknowledged the challenges of climate policy.“We can do so much more,” Obama said.But he added: “The politics of this are tough.”Americans whose jobs are powered by cheap energy might not be able to afford cars like the hybrid Toyota Prius, Obama said, and even if they care about the temperature of the planet it’s probably not their No. 1 concern, compared to keeping a job and feeding the family, he added.In the two years since then, Obama has introduced a slew of climate-change measures through executive action. However, because those measures can’t get through Congress in actual legislation, they could be cancelled by a future president or challenged at the state level and in the courts.One thing Obama hasn’t done: announce a Keystone decision. The White House said earlier this year that its administration’s review was almost over, but now it won’t even provide a ballpark estimate for the timing of a decision.The delay has not only frustrated pipeline supporters — but also opponents eager for a rejection, and a chance to move on from the years-long battle.If it’s granted a permit to cross the Canada-U.S. border, the pipeline would carry more than one-quarter of all Canadian oil exported to the United States.In the meantime, the pipeline’s southern U.S. leg is already operational. Oil is being shipped across the border, into the U.S., through other pipelines and by rail. by Alexander Panetta, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 17, 2015 3:34 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 17, 2015 at 4:02 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Obama to appear at fundraiser hosted by Keystone opponent, as decision awaited read more

Global media giants UN agency team up in ongoing fight against hunger

In a news release, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the National Geographic Society today confirmed that they will be teaming up to form a partnership envisaging “cooperation, a regular dialogue and access to FAO expertise, knowledge exchange, content-sharing, cross promotion, joint activities and participation at events and on publishing platforms.”Moreover, when reporting on food and agriculture issues, National Geographic will utilize food and agricultural statistics as well as trends and data sets from the FAO’s statistical service, FAOStat. Speaking at the agreement’s signing ceremony, FAO Director-General, José Graziano da Silva, lauded the new partnership and the possibilities it presented, adding that both organizations shared the view that “wide access to reliable information is a key tool in the fight for human rights, and specifically when it comes to the right to food.”Today’s agreement comes on the heels of the announcement of another similar partnership between the FAO and the Thomson Reuters Foundation which launched a comprehensive global news platform dedicated to food issues on 15 October. The platform, to be hosted on trust.org, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s news portal, will feature news coverage combining “the knowledge and expertise of FAO with the reach of the Foundation’s global team of journalists, including a dedicated food security reporter based in Rome,” a news release explained. In a statement celebrating the collaboration, FAO Director-General, José Graziano da Silva, underscored the “critical role” played by global media in the effort “to build more sustainable food systems and eradicate hunger and malnutrition – as observers and watchdogs, as explainers, as sharers of ideas and information.”“Good governance, an engaged citizenry, knowledge-transfer – all will benefit from the reliable, rigorous, and focused reporting that will take place via this new initiative,” affirmed Mr. Graziano da Silva. read more

Everything you need to know about what it will cost you to

first_imgThis will  be treated like any other emergency. All accident or emergency admissions will be brought to a public hospital A&E department. Unless you hold a medical card, you will be charged €100 which covers all tests carried out and treatment rendered. I’ve found a strange looking mole on  my body so I went to my GP and he is sending me to a dermatologist. Do I have to pay them?   Yes, you will have to pay your GP – about €50-€60 – and also the specialist he or she sends you too which could cost in the region of €150 – €250.He thinks it should be removed, will you be billed for this? Removal of a mole is a listed procedure, so you should contact your health insurer with the procedure code (the specialist will give this to you) and they will confirm your cover.  Once it’s an approved procedure, then it will be covered by your insurance policy subject to the terms and conditions. This will apply regardless of whether the minor surgery is performed in the specialist’s consultancy rooms or as a day-care patient in the private hospital.  Assuming you hold the correct cover and the consultant is registered with the insurer as ‘fully participating’, then you should be fully covered.  Key rule is check all treatment in advance with the insurer.  If you don’t have insurance you will be given an appointment for the procedure under the public health system.I presented to A&E and now they want to do more tests? If you require additional tests such as x-rays, scans and blood tests and hospital treatment is deemed necessary, they will then admit you either to a public or private hospital as their private patient and either your health insurance will cover it or if you are going public you will have to pay the €75 per night, as specified previous.I have been diagnosed with cancer (or another long term illness). What are my options?If you are diagnosed with a serious illness the hospital will do everything it can to treat you as soon as possible. Whether you have health insurance or not, your case will be a priority.If you want control over your treatment, health insurance will allow you to specify the hospital you want to attend, often the room you will be in and perhaps the consultant you would like to see and the treatment procedure you would like best.If you are in the public system, a hospital and consultant will be assigned to you. Just like any other stay in hospital, you will pay the first €75 per night, capped at €750.Opinion: Considering health insurance? The devil is in the detail.>Read: Universal Health Insurance model comes under further criticism by health workers> IN A CAR accident, broken your arm or have a dodgy mole that needs removing, but not sure what it will cost you?With the help of Dermot Goode General Manager of Cornmarket Healthcare Division, TheJournal.ie breaks down how you can access the system and tells you what it will cost you.Do I have to pay? There are two ways of accessing healthcare services in Ireland, either as a public or private patient.Every Irish citizen or person who is ordinarily resident in the country has access to public hospital services, whether you have health insurance, a medical card or nothing at all.However, the catch is that these services are not free and you may be subject to waiting times depending on your medical condition.This can often be the case for certain orthopaedic procedures such as if you require surgery for a dodgy knee or hip.I think I broke my ankle so I am going to go to the A&E – what will be the damage? Unless you hold a medical card, you will be charged €100 for all treatment received in a public hospital accident and emergency room.If you have already consulted your GP and you have a referral letter, then this charge will not apply.Some health insurance policies give a contribution towards this A&E charge, but you will have to pay this up-front and claim your refund directly from your insurer at year end.If this is not covered by your policy, then you may be able to claim standard tax relief on this expense as part of your annual tax return.Uh oh, they think it might be serious so they are keeping me overnight, how much is this going to cost? The bad news. You will have to pay €75 for each night in the public hospital. The good news is the amount is capped.  You will only have to pay up to 10 nights in any 12 month period to the maximum of €750.Health insurance companies urge consumers to take this into consideration when health insurance packages can start from €500 for an adult and less for a child.Now the doctor says I’ll have to have surgery. Will I need to remortgage to pay for this!?If you’re a public patient, you will be put on the appropriate list for that surgery and you will be contacted with a date for your treatment.If going privately, you will be referred by your GP to a specialist who will arrange your treatment privately in line with the health insurance held. You will have to pay for all costs until such time as you’re admitted and your health insurance will take over at this stage.I’ve been in a car accident and rushed to the emergency room. Is the hospital going to bill me? last_img read more

Make your own long range WiFi antenna from a coffee can

first_imgIf you’re already bored by your summer (or are looking for something to occupy your kids with), then take a look at this long-range WiFi antenna that was created out of an Illy coffee can. Taking only a few hours to build, a gentleman by the name of Jon Graham-Cumming built this Macguyver-esque device by using parts that are readily available in any geek’s home and local Radio Shack.To recreate this antenna yourself you will need a type N Bulkhead socket and plug, an electric drill, a piece of metal from a coathanger and a WiFi extension cable. Of course, you will also need a metal coffee can to make the whole thing work.By drilling five small holes and affixing a soldered portion of the coathanger to the bulkhead socket, Graham-Cumming was able to create a directional antenna chamber that drastically improved his signal-to-noise ratio from far off access points. In his testing he was able to pick up a strong signal from a hotel that is a quarter-mile from his home and connect to its guest network successfully. Whereas before he started using his coffee can creation he was only able to pick up about 58 different access points, 97 became visible with the farthest away being the aforementioned hotel. He reported that the signal from some of the known access points in his area reported a signal improvement between 3 and 9dB, which is impressive indeed. All done for a cost that is under $30 and an hour of time.That’s certainly a better price tag compared to some of the retail boosting antennas available on the market these days, plus it’s way more fun to create one yourself.We’ve seen projects done like this using Pringles cans, but this seem like a much better alternative. Plus who wouldn’t prefer coffee to chips?You can read more about the coffee can antenna at Graham-Cumming’s site.last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … On Sunday, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon posted a note on Instagram saying that “he can’t believe” that the second shooting took place in less than a week. He called people to join him in praying for the victims. Walmart also tweeted that the company is “in shock” and is “praying for the victims, the community and our associates, as well as the first responders.”However, the retail giant received public condemnation for continuing to sell firearms despite increasing public debates demanding ban of the sale on weapons in the country.But despite traditionally selling firearms for “hunting” purposes, the company has made several changes in its sale policies of ammunition across America over the years. After last year’s Parkland shooting in Florida, Walmart changed its gun sales policies by raising its minimum gun purchasing age to 21.The company spokesperson also mentioned that Walmart has paid attention to public discourse on gun violence and has initiated a ban on the sale of “modern sporting rifles” which he described as “military-style semi-automatic rifles”. The weapons were removed from the website and any air gun or toy that might resemble assault weapons were taken off the shelves, he added. Representative ImageScott Olson/Getty ImagesA day after 20 people were killed and 26 injured inside a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, a spokesperson of the retail giant said that Walmart has no plans to stop selling guns and ammunition.”Our focus has always been on being a responsible seller of firearms,” company spokesman Randy Hargrove said, cited Bloomberg. “We go beyond federal law requiring all customers to pass a background check before purchasing any firearm,” he said.Within 13 hours of the El Paso shooting, around nine people were killed and 27 injured when a shooter opened fire at a Dayton bar in Ohio.The Sunday shooting took place four days after a disgruntled Walmart employee opened fire, killing two co-workers and wounding a police officer in Mississippi. Other instances of gun violence, including the shooting in a Californian food festival, has raised questions regarding the state of gun control laws in the United States. Closelast_img read more

first_imgTMZ has obtained surveillance footage of former Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley and the woman who has accused him of raping her, on the night of the alleged incident.The video does nothing to refute the specific allegations, but does show Conley and the accuser entering and leaving a bar in a large group.Conley is ranked by most insiders as the second best corner in the draft, and a sure-fire first round talent, but if he isn’t cleared of the allegations before the draft starts tonight, he’ll likely drop significantly, and could go undrafted.Cowboys tackle La’el Collins went undrafted in 2015, when he had not been definitively ruled out as a suspect in his ex-girlfriend’s murder. He later signed as a free agent after the draft when he was cleared of any wrongdoing. Advertisementlast_img read more

Additionally, patients and clinicians are showing a growing preference for minimally invasive biopsies over open surgical alternatives. As a result, sales of breast biopsy devices used in these procedures will expand at a steady pace through 2017.Within minimally invasive breast biopsies, clinicians are moving toward using more accurate methods, such as core needle biopsy (CNB) and vacuum-assisted biopsy (VAB), and away from fine-needle aspiration (FNA). VAB in particular is driving growth in this market because this is the most diagnostically accurate method of breast biopsy and VAB devices have higher selling prices. VAB devices will therefore continue to represent the largest and fastest-growing segment of the breast biopsy device market over the next five years, generating significant interest from competitors.”The competitive landscape of the VAB device market has changed considerably since 2010,” said MRG Analyst Michelle Chan. “That year, Devicor Medical Products purchased Ethicon Endo-Surgery’s breast care business and therefore acquired the Mammotome brand, which is arguably the most well-recognized brand in VAB. C. R. Bard also purchased SenoRx, giving it access to the EnCor VAB device.”The shift toward VAB has not occurred at the same rate worldwide. In the United States, more than 50 percent of minimally invasive breast biopsies are performed using this technique, which has supported the large size of the U.S. market. In China, however, less than one-quarter of procedures use VAB. Nonetheless, the shift toward VAB will be the fastest in China through 2017 due to its expanding economy and the ongoing shift away from open surgical biopsies. Japan is the only country where there is still a strong preference for less expensive FNA, causing it to be the smallest regional market.MRG’s Global Markets for Breast Biopsy Devices 2013 report includes unit, average selling price and revenue information, along with market drivers and limiters and a competitive landscape for VAB devices, CNB devices and fine needles in the United States, Europe (France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom), Japan and China.For more information: www.MRG.net, www.DecisionResourcesGroup.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | February 22, 2013 Global Breast Biopsy Device Market Will Grow Steadily Feature | Artificial Intelligence | July 19, 2019 | Michal Chorev AI Models Predict Breast Cancer With Radiologist-level Accuracy Breast cancer is the global leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, and the most commonly diagnosed cancer… read more News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more last_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter South Africa attracted

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterSouth Africa attracted more than 133 000 arrivals from Australasia last year, and to further tap into this important source market, South African Tourism recently hosted 52 travel agents from the region on a mega-famil that took place across all nine provinces.Made up of 50 Australian agents and two from New Zealand, the bumper trip was the result of a fruitful partnership between South African Tourism, South African Airways and Flight Centre.Agents were given an attractive incentive: those who sold the most SAA flight tickets so South Africa in September and October last year earned a spot. From there, they went on to complete the SA Specialist training course, equipping them with the knowledge to sell South Africa as a destination.Six groups of Australasian Flight Centre travel agents enjoyed six different week-long itineraries showcasing an array of attractions across the length and breadth of the country.“Through initiatives such as these familiarisation trips, we hope to make further inroads into achieving our 5-in-5 goal of attracting five million more tourists by 2021. The 52 Australasian agents were blown away by South Africa’s vast array of experiences as well as by our renowned hospitality, and returned home charged with fresh inspiration to sell our country as a multifaceted and value-for-money holiday destination.” says Sthembiso Dlamini, Chief Operating Officer of South African Tourism.The itineraries were carefully tailored to showcase the country’s untouched wildlife, buzzing city lifestyle, culturalrichness, sun-soaked coastlines, breathtaking scenery, adventure offerings and its welcoming people.Each group of agents travelled to between two and four provinces, including the country’s less-frequented areas, to encourage the geographic spread of tourism.Furthermore, in this, the year marking the centenary of Nelson Mandela’s birth, the agents had the opportunity to walk in Madiba’s footsteps, visiting some of the sites around South Africa where the global icon left his indelible mark.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more
