International Champions Cup: Neymar strikes, F.C. Barcelona edge past Manchester United F.C.

first_imgStar Brazilian striker Neymar, amid a frenzy of transfer speculation, struck a decisive goal as Barcelona edged past Manchester United at the International Champions Cup here on Thursday.The 25-year-old continued his rich vein of form as he smashed his third goal in two matches to hand the Jose Mourinho-led side their first pre-season defeat.With the crucial goal, Neymar also showed why he is reportedly the subject of a world-record offer, that is, a likely move of 222 million Euros from Paris Saint-Germain.United made a bright start in the match, with their pace on the break through Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard causing plenty of problems.However, the visitors failed to keep their momentum as they struggled to stop Barcelona’s star duo of Neymar and Lionel Messi.Soon, Neymar stripped the ball from Antonio Valencia in the penalty area and found the back of the net in the 31st minute — the goal which was enough to secure a back-to-back victory for new Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde.In another clash, Danilo made his debut while Kevin De Bruyne led from the front as Manchester City registered a resounding 4-1 win over Real Madrid in California.last_img read more

Dialog Semiconductor: newest SmartBond SoCs offer integrated ARM Cortex-M33 processor

first_imgDialog Semiconductor unveiled the SmartBond DA1469x family of Bluetooth low energy SoCs, its most advanced, feature-rich range of multi-core microcontroller units for wireless connectivity. The new product family includes four variants.The DA1469x product family has been designed to expand the range of applications, underpinned by Dialog’s proven SmartBond technology, that device manufacturers can create. The devices’ three integrated cores have each been carefully chosen for their capabilities to sense, process and communicate between connected devices.To provide the devices’ processing power, the DA1469x product family is the first wireless microcontroller in production with a dedicated application processor based on the ARM Cortex-M33 processor. The M33 offers developers greater processing power for more intensive applications, such as high-end fitness trackers, advanced smart home devices and virtual reality game controllers.The DA1469x range provides developers with advanced connectivity to future-proof their devices to fit the needs of multiple applications. Its new integrated radio offers double the range compared to its predecessor together with an ARM Cortex-M0+ based software-programmable packet engine that implements protocols and provides full flexibility for wireless communication.On the connectivity front, an emerging application is for manufacturers to deploy accurate positioning through the Angle of Arrival and Angle of Departure features of the newly introduced Bluetooth 5.1 standard. With its world-class radio front end performance and configurable protocol engine, the DA1469x complies with this new version of the standard and opens new opportunities for devices that require accurate indoor positioning such as building access and remote keyless entry systems.To enhance the sensing functionality of the DA1469x, the M33 application processor and M0+ protocol engine is complemented with a Sensor Node Controller (SNC), which is based on a programmable micro-DSP that runs autonomously and independently processes data from the sensors connected to its digital and analog interfaces, waking the application processor only when needed. In addition to this power-saving feature, a state-of-the-art Power Management Unit (PMU) provides best-in-class power management by controlling the different processing cores and only activating them as needed.Across the board, developers will have a full range of computing power and functionality to work with on the DA1469x family. The SoCs feature up to 144 DMIPS, 512 kBytes of RAM, memory protection, a floating-point unit, a dedicated crypto engine to enable end-to-end security and expandable memories, ensuring a wide range of advanced smart device applications can be implemented using the chipset family and supporting a range of key value-add interfaces to extend functionality even further.The PMU also provides three regulated power rails and one LDO output to supply external system components, removing the requirement of a separate power management IC. Additionally, the DA169x product family come equipped with a range of key value-add interfaces including a display driver, an audio interface, USB, a high-accuracy ADC, a haptic driver capable of driving both ERM and LRA motors as well as a programmable stepping motor controller.Developers working with the DA1469x product family can rely on Dialog’s software development suite – SmartSnippets Kontron Presents System-on-Module Based on the New STM32MP157 with Three Processor Cores by STMicroelectronics.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous Premier Farnell introduces Avnet SmartEdge IoT gatewayNext Green Hills: INTEGRITY RTOS deployed in safety remote field controller from Phoenixlast_img read more

Derek Saretzky appeals convictions sentence in Alberta triple murder

first_imgCALGARY – An Alberta man is appealing his conviction and sentence for the murders of a father, the man’s two-year-old daughter and a woman.Derek Saretzky, 24, was convicted of three counts of first-degree murder in June for the 2015 deaths of Terry Blanchette, Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette and 69-year-old Hanne Meketech.Last month, he was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 75 years.Calgary lawyer Balfour Der filed the notice of appeal on Saretzky’s behalf.“We believe there was evidence admitted that should not have been admitted, that there were mistakes made by the trial judge admitting the confessions that were given by Mr. Saretzky,” Der said in an interview Thursday.“We also contend that the sentence with three consecutive 25-year parole ineligibility periods were just simply too long.”Saretzky is seeking a new trial and the conviction and sentence appeals would be heard separately, he said.Der, who was not Saretzky’s lawyer during the trial, said he has not officially been retained yet but that he could handle the appeals.Saretzky is being held at the maximum-security Atlantic Institution, a federal correctional facility in Renous, N.B.Der said he has spoken with Saretkzy a few times and agreed to file the documents before the appeal time limit expires Friday.Last month, Justice William Tilleman of Court of Queen’s Bench said he considered Saretzky to be dangerous. He said that each murder was a separate and deliberate event causing heartbreak for the Crowsnest Pass community in southern Alberta, where the killings happened.He noted that five days passed between Meketech’s killing and the murders of Blanchette and his daughter.CAUTION: GRAPHIC CONTENT THAT FOLLOWS MAY DISTURB SOME READERSDuring the trial, court heard videotaped confessions from Saretzky, who told police he killed Meketech on the spur of the moment.Blanchette was beaten before his throat was cut in the home where he lived with Hailey.The girl was taken from her crib to a campsite, which was partially owned by Saretzky’s family, where he choked her to death with a shoelace.He said a prayer over the girl before he drank her blood, ate part of her heart and burned her body in a firepit.Blanchette’s body was found by his father. Police launched a massive search for Hailey, but it was called off after Saretzky confessed to police.Six months later he confessed to the murder of Meketech.Saretzky knew all three victims. No real motive for the killings emerged during the trial.Saretzky told police the devil taunted him “to do all kinds of stupid stuff,” but he was found mentally fit to face the charges.— by John Cotter in Edmontonlast_img read more

Guinea UN rights chief calls for independent probe into Mondays blood bath

Days after security forces opened fire on an opposition rally in Guinea, killing over 130 people, the top United Nations human rights official today called for an independent inquiry into what she described as a “blood bath.” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said she was appalled by reports that women were raped, and members of the opposition were arbitrarily arrested and had their homes looted during the violent suppression of a mass demonstration on 28 September in the capital, Conakry.“Monday’s blood bath must not become part of the fabric of impunity that has enveloped Guinea for decades,” Ms. Pillay said in a statement strongly condemning the excessive force, including the use of live ammunition, exerted to disperse the largely peaceful crowds.Noting that the Guinean authorities have announced an inquiry to unveil who gave the orders to fire on demonstrators, Ms. Pillay underscored the need for independent and impartial investigations into all human rights violations, “so that all those responsible for carrying out summary executions, rapes and other human rights violations are brought to justice.” She also pointed out that under the previous Government numerous similar violations were carried out, in particular in June 2006 and February 2007.“An independent Commission of Inquiry was established to look into those events,” Ms. Pillay said, “but, due to a lack of political will, it never functioned. Its failure to do so could well be a factor in Monday’s violence and it is essential Guinea does not repeat this failure.” Army Captain Moussa Dadis Camara seized power of the West African nation in a coup in December 2008 after the death of Guinea’s long-time president Lansana Conté. 30 September 2009Days after security forces opened fire on an opposition rally in Guinea, killing over 130 people, the top United Nations human rights official today called for an independent inquiry into what she described as a “blood bath.” read more

DESWIK unveils new operations scheduling tool

first_imgDeswik recently announced the launch of Deswik.OPS, its new operational shift planning and tracking tool. “Directly integrating with a variety of systems that maintain longer term schedules, planned KPIs and production data, this new tool is set to revolutionise the way mines manage their daily operations.” Deswik.OPS enables production planners to rapidly create detailed, activity-based shift plans directly from the less detailed shorter-term schedules. Longer term schedules can also be imported to ensure the shift schedule remains on track with the organisation’s longer term goals.Throughout a shift, users can import from third-party systems or manually capture real-time production data and events, mapping them to the activities and resources. By providing a live view of how the shift plan is progressing, the work can be better managed, resulting in higher productivity. In order to deal with the continual change in an operational environment, dynamic updates to the shift schedule are also possible.Designed to meet the daily requirements of short-term engineers, production engineers, shift bosses, control room personnel and site superintendents, this new web-based tool will provide a centralised, collaborative interface and have everyone working towards common goals. Deswik.OPS has been implemented at two beta sites, one in Northern Europe and another in Western Australia. Deswik says its engineers have been working closely with the clients to ensure that the system was not only set up to meet their specific requirements, but also tested extensively in an operational environment.“With the increased focus on productivity and efficiency improvements in mining operations, Deswik.OPS offers a solution that enable mines to move away from spreadsheet-based shift planning and take advantage of integrating the various systems that capture data on a mine. Deswik.OPS can turn that data into information that can be used to effectively manage the complex activities and interactions occurring in a shift.” explained Adam White, Deswik Technical Director.last_img read more

NVidia announces the return of SLI to AMD mainboards

first_imgHigh-end gaming rigs and NVidia’s SLI technology have gone hand-in-hand ever since the company first debuted its multi-GPU graphics rendering muscle back in 2004. Originally the perfect match for AMD CPUs — which were also favored by gamers at the time — NVidia pulled support when Intel upped its game and climbed back to the top of the performance charts.Now, however, there’s been a change of heart at NVidia and AMD fans will once again be able to enjoy SLI setups in their systems, which according to Steam is used in 93% of multi-GPU systems.  According to the official blog post, the soon-to-be-released AMD 990FX, 990X and 970 chipsets will be certified for SLI and motherboards are already being finalized by OEMs including ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, and ASRock. One MSI board was even spotted laying around the show floor at CES 2011 in Las Vegas (check out the video below).The company’s Tom Peterson says it wanted to ensure that all gamers could “benefit from the new CPU competitive landscape,” and the about-face is certainly welcome news. It’s always nice to be able to choose the exact parts you want to use in your new system or upgrade — way nicer than having to make your decision based on whether or not a manufacturer of one component wants to place nice with another.More at Nvidia blogslast_img read more

Archaeologists discover 2500yearold lost Greek city

first_imgA 2,500-year-old lost city has been discovered by archaeologists in Greece some 300km north of Athens.The ruins are in a village called Vlochos, and while some were known, up until now they were considered to be apart of a settlement on a hill, reports the website Independent.Now a team of researchers from the Universities of Gothenburg and Bournemouth and the Ephorate of Antiquities of Karditsa have turned their attention to the site, and are being led by Robin Ronnlund.“A colleague and I came across the site in connection with another project last year, and we realised the great potential right away,” Mr Ronnlund said.And it would seem they were on to something, since having found remains of towers, walls and city gates on both the summit and slopes of the hill, along with ancient pottery and coins that date as far back as 500 BC.In their search Mr Ronnlund said the team are hoping to avoid the use of excavation, and instead are using new and progressive methods including a ground-penetrating radar that protects the site and leaves it in the same condition it was found in. So far the city is believed to have been developed around the fourth to third century BC, after which it was abandoned. While the reasons for this remain unknown, given the estimated dates, it could have been due to the Roman conquest that took place in the area.“Very little is known about ancient cities in the region, and many researchers have previously believed that western Thessaly was somewhat of a backwater during antiquity,” Mr Ronnlund said.“Our project therefore fills an important gap in the knowledge about the area and shows that a lot remains to be discovered in the Greek soil.“The fact that nobody has ever explored the hill before is a mystery.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Murkowski spotlights civic heroes at AFN

first_imgAs Sen. Dan Sullivan did in his address yesterday, Murkowski kept her speech focused on Alaska Native heroes. But while Sullivan mostly discussed military veterans, Murkowski put more emphasis on the civic and cultural leaders.Download AudioShe reeled off scores of names — Sidney Huntington, John Baker, Poldine Carlo, Georgianna Lincoln, Rosita Worl, amonth others. Murkowski recognized leaders in community health, suicide prevention, education, engineering and business, and one pair of exemplary parents.“These are heroes, each and every day making a difference,” the senator said. “One person, making a difference. One person saying, ‘I can do something to change the direction.’”The Acilquq Drummers and Dancers take the stage at AFN. They’re an Anchorage-based group dancing in traditional Yup’ik style. Photos: Zachariah Hughes/KSKA.Murkowski also endorsed a passionate cause permeating this year’s convention: “My list of heroes includes friends in the Interior and across the state who seek justice for the Fairbanks Four. We will continue with that.”During her speech, a dozen or so demonstrators came in, some in animal costumes. They held subsistence- and climate-related signs, like “Don’t roll the dice with my ice” and “Ichthyophonus is upon us.” (That’s a fish parasite.) They told reporters they were protesting the senator’s support of Arctic drilling.Murkowski did highlight some of her work in the Senate, including a provision in an education bill that would require school districts and the state to let Native communities weigh in on what and how their children are taught.Murkowski also spoke of her support of a bill to restore the Voting Rights Act. Last month, she was the first Republican to co-sponsor the Senate bill, and according to the congressional bill database, she’s still the only one.Reporter Daysha Eaton contributed to this story.last_img read more

Why flight attendants are at high risk of cancer

first_imgDue to regular exposure to carcinogens, disrupted sleep cycles and possible chemical contaminants, flight attendants may be at a higher risk of developing several forms of cancer than others, finds a new research.These include breast, uterine, gastrointestinal, thyroid and cervical cancer.According to the study, flight attendants are also regularly exposed to the largest effective annual ionizing radiation dose relative to all other radiation workers because of both their exposure to and lack of protection from cosmic radiation in the plane. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Our findings of higher rates of several cancers among flight attendants is striking given the low rates of overweight and smoking in our study population, which highlights the question of what can be done to minimize the adverse exposures and cancers common among cabin crew,” said Irina Mordukhovich from the Harvard University’s T.H Chan School of Public Health.The study, published in the journal ‘Environmental Health’, included data from a survey of 5,366 US flight attendants, who were then compared the prevalence of cancers among the general public. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe results showed that flight attendants had a higher prevalence of every cancer that was examined, especially breast cancer, melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer among females.The findings suggest that additional efforts should be made to minimize the risk of cancer among flight attendants, including monitoring radiation dose and organising schedules to minimize radiation exposure and circadian rhythm disruption, the researchers suggested.last_img read more

PostBrexit Volatility is Waning

first_img Last month’s historic Brexit vote drove mortgage rates down near historic lows and brought a flurry of refinancing activity. According to Freddie Mac, however, the volatility in the mortgage market brought on by Brexit is tapering off and interest rates are recovering.According to Freddie Mac’s latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey released Thursday, the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage for the week ending July 21, 2016, was 3.45 percent, up 3 basis points from a week earlier. While on the way up (having ticked up by 4 basis points in the last 2 weeks), the average 30-year FRM is still only 14 basis points above the record low of 3.31 percent set in 2012.Last year at this time, the average 30-year FRM was still above 4 percent (4.04).Meanwhile, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.75 with an average 0.5 point up for the week ending July 21, also up 3 basis points from the previous week’s average of 2.72 percent. The 15-year FRM averaged 3.21 percent at this time last year.All of this means that the already low mortgage rates will likely stay low for a while, according to Freddie Mac.“Post-Brexit volatility tapered off over the last two weeks, allowing interest rates to bounce back a bit from their record (10-year Treasury yield) and near-record (30-year mortgage rate) lows,” said Sean Becketti, Chief Economist with Freddie Mac. “This week, the 30-year fixed mortgage rate increased 3 basis points to a still-quite-low 3.45 percent. With the Federal Reserve on hold and the UK monetary authority taking at least a one-month breather, we don’t expect any significant movement in mortgage rates in the near-term. This summer remains an auspicious time to buy a home or to refinance an existing mortgage.”The boom in the number of mortgage applications that occurred immediately following Brexit is over; for the week ending July 15, the Mortgage Bankers Association reported a 1.3 percent decline in the number of mortgage apps from a week earlier. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination July 21, 2016 685 Views Sharecenter_img Brexit Freddie Mac Mortgage Rates Primary Mortgage Market Survey 2016-07-21 Seth Welborn Post-Brexit Volatility is Waninglast_img read more

That was the message to the players. We have to continue to improve. We can’t come back and start over. We’ve got to be able to have everything right where it is or better.”One area Arians wants to see improve is the players’ conditioning.“We’re not in the best shape,” he said. “We’ve got to get in better condition to play as fast as we want to play, especially offensively.”Receiver Larry Fitzgerald agreed.“I don’t think we are where we did to be,” he said. “We still have a lot of things to work on. Once we get to training and guys are really clicking on all cylinders, we’re going to start to get better. Offense takes a little time.”Defensively, the Cardinals showed an aggressive, attacking-style ,getting their hands on a number of thrown passes, including several interceptions.“I think we made great progress, as a unit, as a defense,” said Patrick Peterson, who believes the defense under coordinator Todd Bowles can be special. “But like (Arians) said earlier in the team meeting, soccer practice is over. Now it’s time to put the big boy pads on. Now it’s time to see what we’ve really got.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The Cardinals, because of the collective bargaining agreement, have practiced in only helmets and shorts up until this point.
