Android users in Europe can pick their default search engine starting in

first_imgGoogle’s new search option screen. Google Google will prompt Android owners in Europe to choose their own search engine starting next year, according to announcement made by the company on Friday in a blog post. When setting up an Android, you’ll instead be presented with a screen where you’ll be asked to select a search engine from a range of options.The introduction of the search engine engine selection screen follows a landmark antitrust decision by the European Commission last year that determined Google could be hampering consumer choice by stipulating its own apps and services must be the pre-installed, default options on Android phones. The decision resulted in a record 4.34 billion euros ($5 billion) fine. Google is appealing the fine, but is making changes to Android regardless.European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, who led the investigation into Google’s Android abuses, has been clear that it’s up to Google to work out how to make changes to Android to comply with the decision. Google has already shown new tools to allow people to select search providers for a search box on the Android home screen and prompt them to choose a browser within the Google Play Store.On Friday, the company showed a screenshot of a screen you’ll soon be presented with when setting up a new Android phone or tablet. It will ask you to choose a search provider within Chrome (if you’re using Chrome as your browser). You can already opt to use a different search engine on Android if you prefer, but you have to proactively seek out the option from within the setting menu. The new choice screen will ensure everyone setting up an Android phone in future is making an active choice about which search engine to use.The screen will be introduced in Europe in early 2020 — in the meantime Google, is encouraging search engines that want to be listed to get in touch.

AK Nerdiness and fandom abound at Anchorages 13th Annual Senshi Con

first_imgCosplayers at Senshi Con, Alaska’s largest fandom convention, spent the day as their favorite comic book and anime characters last weekend at the Dena’ina Center. (PhotoLast weekend, thousands of people poured into Anchorage’s Dena’ina Center for the 13th annual Senshi Con… and at Senshi Con, fandom runs deep. It’s Alaska’s largest celebration of nerdiness and geek culture — everything from japanese animation and gaming to science fiction and comic books.Listen nowIt’s the last day of the convention and Justine Felland just got her first tattoo.“I was like ‘Ahhh! I don’t know if I can do this!’ but I did it, my friends were supporting me and it’s my first anime I really really connected with, so I was just like, ‘I’m going to do this one,’” Felland said.Her tattoo, still fresh and covered in plastic wrap, is a symbol from the anime “Fairy Tails.”“There’s a lot of people who don’t feel like they’re part of anything in that show and like they finally find people who care about them. And that’s how I feel about Senshi Con, because I’m a volunteer,” Felland said. “With the people here, I feel like I’m very connected with them. They’re very open and accepting of who you are.”Senshi Con is similar to other conventions — vendor booths, workshops, special guests — but these attendees are rabid fans of video games, science fiction and comics books; most are dressed like superheroes or anime characters. Something referred to as “cosplay.”The vendors sell offerings like steampunk jewelry and crochet Pokémon. Even musical instruments. Laura Sexauer is selling movie and video game themed ocarinas.“The instrument itself is thousands of years old, but it’s popular in the modern age because of ‘The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time,” Sexauer said.Nearby, there’s a video game tournament being projected on a wall while attendees sit at rows of tables playing computer games or tabletop games like Dungeons and Dragons.One floor up, Bernadette Tix is teaching a class on sword fighting techniques. She’s in full medieval garb, roaming between pairs of students facing off against each other with wooden training swords. She’s here promoting Schola Saint George.“So we are set up like a school of martial arts or a dojo,” Tix said. We have a specific curriculum that’s been developed based off of medieval fighting treatises, specifically off of the master Fiore dei Liberi. Fiore dei Liberi was an Italian master of defense from the early 1400s.”The genres and interests at Senshi Con might be eclectic, but Tix says it makes sense.“I think a lot of people get into medieval reenactment, medieval fighting, originally through a love of fantasy, right? A love of fantasy can inspire a love of real history as well and a love of fantasy can also lead to a love of other forms of fiction,” Tix said. “You know, animes, and video games, and those sorts of things. I’m a huge Tolkien nerd, so fantasy, sci-fi — I’m an anime fan myself. I think people who often have those interests, our hope is, some of them are going to have an overlap with this.”Down the hall, there’s a room where attendees can give their costumes a tune-up. Cosplay is basically putting together a costume and spending the day as your favorite fictional character. It’s a big part of the Senshi Con experience.“This one in particular is my first time with this, um, costume people,” Veronica Pearson laughed.Pearson is roaming the convention with a medical kit. She is not in costume, but part of emergency medical services. She’s worked other events at the Dena’ina Center, but not like this.“The costumes are phenomenal, the people are amazing. A lot of them really get into their role-playing and it’s kind of exciting to see,” Pearson said. “I don’t think I could do it, but I like looking.”She might not have a clue about what’s going on, but Pearson appreciates the lighthearted enthusiasm of the convention.“There seems to be an atmosphere that is just fun,” Pearson said. “Can we just have some fun? I appreciate that in a stressful world.”Fun is why one attendee — who goes by Kane — spent his weekend at Senshi Con. He was one of the first through the doors on Friday. He’s cosplaying as Link from the Legend of Zelda video games.“I’ve been here since day one and all I have to say is that it was amazing,” Kane said.Kane spent the weekend wandering the convention, meeting people, and checking out the attractions. He even bought himself a new ocarina to go with his costume.“I gave my old ocarina to another Link who didn’t have one,” Kane said. “No Link is complete without an ocarina.”It’s that kind of instant connection to each other that attendees find so appealing about Senshi Con. It’s a judgment-free zone and a chance to wear your interests on your sleeve, literally. For Kane though, it’s even simpler.“Bunch of nerds. I fit in,” Kane said. “I fit in very well.last_img read more

Bangladeshi immigrant Nina Ahmad to run for Congress

first_imgBangladeshi immigrant Nina Ahmad has resigned as deputy mayor of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to run for US Congress Cap: Nina Ahmad.Nina Ahmad is one of the strongest candidates among the Bangladeshi immigrants aspiring to join mainstream politics in the United States so far. Recently she resigned as deputy mayor of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to run for Congress.Nina talked about her preparations for the Congress election during a conversation with Prothom Alo on Thursday. She resigned her post as deputy mayor on 30 September to contest in the election against Congressman Robert Brady, a current member of Democratic Party. She had to leave the post to be nominated in the Congress election. Nina Ahmad will contest as a Democrat member from congressional district-1, consisting Philadelphia City of Chester, a part of Central Philadelphia, and another part of south Philadelphia. If she wins in the primary stage, her chance of victory in the main election will be quite strong.Nina previously served on president’s ‘Advisory Commission of Asian-American and Pacific Islanders’ being appointed by former president Barack Obama. She resigned after Donald Trump has sworn as US president on 20 January this year.  Congressman Robert Brady is the member of Democratic Party who has been under federal scrutiny in a case that snared his two top cohorts. So Brady’s candidacy in November election remains uncertain.On the other hand, Nina has been working in support of immigrants’ rights and respect for more than two decades. She is very popular among the black American, Asian, and Hispanic population. As 78 per cent of the residents of Philadelphia are Democrat supporters, Nina will certainly be at an advantage.Nina told Prothom Alo, “As an immigrant, a woman and a social activist, I am expecting support from people of all spheres.” She said she would start campaigning before Christmas. Earlier, Hashem Clark was the first Bangladeshi congressman in US from 2011 to 2013. Many other Bangladeshi immigrants have participated in the Congress election but never won. Nina Ahmad comparatively has the best chance to win so far.*This item, originally published in Prothom Alo online, has been rewritten in English by Farjana Liakatlast_img read more

Carbon emissions from peatswamp forest clearing quantified

first_imgSatellite image of the island of Borneo on August 19, 2002, showing smoke from burning peat swamp forests. Image: Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC Malaysian peatswamps obliterated for palm oil: study Explore further Peat-swamp forests contain huge amounts of stored carbon both in the biomass above the ground in composting organic matter slowly breaking down in the soils, and much of this is released in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane when the forests are cleared and the swamps are drained.The new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) used satellite images with 250 meter resolution to produce maps of the closed canopy plantations in Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo and Sumatra.They found the oil-palm plantations covered an area of 2 million hectares in Peninsular Malaysia, 2.4 million in Borneo, and 3.9 million in Sumatra. These figures do not include the smaller open canopy plantations, which are difficult to identify from the images, or plantations planted after 2002.The study showed that around 880,000 hectares of peatlands (around six percent) had been converted to oil-palm plantations by the early 2000s. The researchers also looked at the effects of clearing the forests in the region on wildlife, and found that 12.1 percent of species face probable extinction in Peninsular Malaysia (equivalent to 46 species of forest birds), 3.4 percent in Sumatra and 1 percent in Borneo. Among the species at risk are orang-utans, pygmy elephants and Sumatran tigers and rhinos.The researchers calculated that clearing the peatlands released around 140 million tonnes of carbon from above-ground biomass and 4.6 million from oxidation of peat in the ground. Clearing also reduces the carbon sequestration previously provided by the forest..Dr Koh said by 2010 around 2.3 million hectares of peat-swamp forests had been cleared that are currently degraded land and not yet developed as plantations. He said if the clearings were planted with palm for oil species losses could be exacerbated by as much as 12 percent, while if they were re-forested biodiversity would be enhanced by up to 20 percent.The study recommended the remaining peat-swamp forests in Southeast Asia should be conserved to protect biodiversity and safeguard carbon stocks, with most effort being concentrated in Central and West Kalimantan, Sarawak and Riau in Indonesia, which hold 75 percent of the remaining forests, or around 3.9 million hectares, and much of the cleared but not yet developed peat-swamp forest.Indonesia is accelerating its production of palm oil and is planning to double its production by 2020. Palm oil is used to make biodiesel and is also used in soaps, cosmetics and in many processed foods. It can also be used as a fuel for cooking. More information: Remotely sensed evidence of tropical peatland conversion to oil palm, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Published online before print March 7, 2011, doi:10.1073/pnas.1018776108 ( — Peat-swamp forests in Southeast Asia are being cleared to make way for food production and for oil-palm plantations for biofuel, but now a new study has quantified the resultant carbon emissions for the first time. © 2010 Citation: Carbon emissions from peat-swamp forest clearing quantified (2011, March 8) retrieved 18 August 2019 from This document is subject to copyright.

Hope returns to Australian hotel maket ANZPHIC

first_img<a href=”” target=”_blank”><img src=”;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Australian hoteliers are beginning to relax as demand and revenue grows after more than two years of decline.At the tenth annual Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Hotel Industry Conference (ANZPHIC) held in Sydney last week, some 400 industry stakeholders breathed a collective sigh of relief at what was generally positive news.“What we heard was improving occupancies in 2010 for leading markets…supported by improving demand from key inbound visitor markets such as the USA and improving hotel investment demand from overseas investment markets,” ANZPHIC conference chair John Smith said.“It’s a combination of trends that will help to finally rebuild confidence as the industry continues the climb back from the challenges and disruptions of the past two years,” he added.  All major Australian cities experienced a growth in Revenue per Available Room (RevPAR) in the year to May 2010 as industry data providers recorded a 24 per cent rise in RevPAR across the Asia Pacific region.This comes after a 19 per cent drop in RevPAR for Asia Pacific over the corresponding period in 2009.In the year to date, Sydney had the highest occupancy at an almost record-breaking 86 per cent while its room rate growth was moderate.With forecast average revenue growth of eight to ten per cent over the year ahead, Sydney’s prospects were rated highly by delegates at the conference. Brisbane was also expected to grow, but delegates were wary of Melbourne’s growth, questioning its ability to fill its new hotel room supply. Queensland’s Gold Coast was the big surprise, as occupancy and room rates rose from the brink of several years’ decline.As confidence in Australia’s hotel industry returned, so too did investors with Jones Lang LaSalle reporting AUD600 million worth of sales to overseas buyers achieved in recent months.Particular mention was made to the purchase of Four Points Darling Harbour by Singapore magnate Michael Kum.

PennyMacs Q4 Net Income Led by Loan Servicing

first_imgPennyMac’s Q4 Net Income Led by Loan Servicing Fourth Quarter Earnings PennyMac Financial Services Servicing 2016-02-09 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News, Servicing PennyMac Financial Services, Inc., recently reported higher fourth quarter profits, led by their loan servicing department.According to PennyMac’s fourth quarter earning statement, its net income totaled $68.9 million for the quarter, up from $65.3 million in the third quarter and $45.9 million last year in the fourth quarter. Total net revenue for the fourth quarter was $187.2 million, down from last quarter’s total of $189.2 but up from last year’s total of $141.7. Net income attributable to common stockholders was $12.8 million or $0.58 per diluted share.Chairman and CEO Stanford L. Kurland noted that PennyMac Financial “concluded another record year with solid financial and operational performance in the fourth quarter, which reflected balanced earnings contributions from the production and servicing segments.The statement showed that servicing revenue rose 70 percent from the third quarter to $78.2 million, while the servicing portfolio rose 4 percent from September 30, 2015 to $160.3 billion in UPB. The servicing portfolio at PennyMac reached $160.3 billion in UPB, up 51 percent from December 31, 2014, “driven by the organic additions from loan production and $32.8 billion in UPB of mortgage servicing rights (MSR) acquisitions.”PennyMac also reported that loan production increased 67 percent year-over-year to total $48.4 billion in UPB. This included $4.1 billion in UPB of consumer direct production, an increase of 113 percent from the prior year.”Our mortgage production volumes remained strong despite a seasonally smaller mortgage market and higher interest rates during the quarter. Our servicing segment delivered record pretax income, driven primarily by growth in core servicing profitability and MSR valuation gains that were largely offset by hedging activities. Our consistently strong financial performance reflects our dedicated approach to interest rate risk management across the production pipeline and the MSR asset.”Click here to view the full earnings statement.center_img February 9, 2016 597 Views Sharelast_img read more

Wulong Our first visit to China was in April 2018

first_imgWulongOur first visit to China was in April 2018, touring Yunnan and Suchuan with Wendy Wu Tours. The tour originally included time in the Nine Villages Valley, reputedly one of the most beautiful areas in China, however, the area was closed to visitors by the Chinese government at the time of our tour, due to extensive earthquake damage. Wendy Wu substituted a visit to the Wulong Karst National Geology Park near Chongqing. We’d never heard of this area and some of our fellow tourists were disappointed with the change. Since we were newby visitors to China the change didn’t bother us. Our two days in Wulong turned out to be one of the highlights of our tour. We stayed at a very comfortable hotel on the River in the centre of town, the Yuzhu Garden Hotel. It was obvious that very few western visitors get to Wulong as we were the subject of much interest from the locals with lots of photos being taken of our group. Our hotel in Wulong was on the river and there were shops on both sides of the river and a walk across the bridge was very pleasant. Wulong has a population of about 350,000 with a surprising amount of high rise, (perhaps not so surprising as it is China after all). The scenery on our drive from Chongqing was also pretty spectacular mountain terrain.Longshui Fissure and GorgeLongshui Fissure and Gorge is also near Wulong and it is a totally different experience. The gorge is about 5 kilometres long and contains lots of stairs and walkways built into the side of the fissure. In places it is only metres wide and you are either on top of tumbling rivers or under crashing waterfalls. The walk itself is about two kilometres and again there is a shuttle service to take you back up.Whilst the walk is quite easy for a fit person it is wet and slippery in places and a raincoat or umbrella is handy, plus you need shoes with a good grip.To enter the gorge you descend a narrow tunnel with concrete steps, to a glass fronted lift that takes you down to the start of the walkway. Again the lift glass was opaque due to weather, so no views on the way down. The first part of the walk is in lush rainforest type vegetation with lots of twisting stairways. Once down at river level the clever Chinese have built floating concrete walkways into the fissure walls and over the river. From here you can hear and see the many waterfalls and rapids and there are lots of opportunities for great photos. The Wulong Karst area features spectacular karst landscapes, including the three main parts of Furong Cave, Three Natural Bridges and Houping Giant Doline. There are deep gorges, natural bridges, caves, crashing waterfalls and underground streams. We visited the Three Natural Bridges and the Longsui Gorge. The Natural Bridges area was used for filming of the Transformers movie, and there are transformer statues along the walkway to remind you. Both the Three Natural Bridges and Longshui Fissure are easily accessible by bus from Wulong if you are not on an organised tour. There are also regular bus services to the area from Chongqing.You can walk down stairs to the walkway but the elevator is better. Images and video: John Dunphy, Carole Dunphy The walk along the gorge is flat and easy and you get taken back to the top car park on a little golf cart-type shuttle bus from the end of the walk. The gorge is filled with beautiful trees and streams and the bridges tower above you. The Transformers statues do seem a bit incongruous, but they add to the enjoyment and were the subject of hundreds of selfies by the locals and us.center_img The three natural karst bridges are Tianlong Bridge, Qinglong Bridge and Heilong Bridge, with an average height of over 200 metres, and an average span over 200 metres; the largest natural bridge cluster in Asia. We descended into the gorge via a 40 metre glass-fronted lift that, unfortunately, had frosted due to weather damage, so we couldn’t see much until we arrived at the base. Descending down many steps we then reached a small temple and the start of the 1.2 kilometre walk along the gorge. Regular contributor, John Dunphy, and his wife, Carole, recently toured China’s Yunnan and Suchuan provinces with Wendy Wu Tours. This was their second tour with Wendy Wu Tours, having visited Japan in February 2017.Here, John provides a firsthand review of their discovery of Wulong, China. ChinaReviewsWendy Wu ToursWulong Our photos don’t do this magnificent national park justice, and you really have to go there to see how spectacular it is. Hopefully Wendy Wu will include Wulong in future tours. We found it pays to learn a few words of Mandarin in Wulong as not many of the locals speak English, or if they do they are too shy to share it.last_img read more

" says Nikolova. which has a minimum sentence of seven years?By mandating a lesser sentence here the Bill seems to imply that violence against a trans person is a less heinous crime than violence against a cis people This conveys the clear message that in the eyes of the law trans people are lesser humans than others Forgetting something The Bill contains a definition of family that fails to include families of choice and adoptive families which are of particular relevance to trans people It also makes no mention of affirmative action a move that the Supreme Court itself called for in NALSA or for a specific avenue for the documentation of rights abuses So as it stands the Transgender Persons [Protection of Rights] Bill 2016 is clearly woefully inadequate to meet the needs of the Indian trans community If passed it would not only cement problematic definitions of gender into law but also institute provisions that actively harm the community and potentially lead to more interference and discrimination than they already face It would also make it seem as though the job is done because if a seemingly-comprehensive Bill actualising the NALSA judgment is passed it seems unlikely that lawmakers will rush to the issue again in the near future This would mean that the Bill if passed will likely be the last major legislation we will see in this field for a while So it’s even more urgent that it’s done right The Ladies Finger (TLF) is a leading online women’s magazine delivering fresh and witty perspectives on politics culture health sex work and everything in between Just like development cannot be an alibi for Hindutva politics secularism cannot be the pretext for corruption and mal-administration The political scenario in India is at a crossroads whereby the choice is between two terrifyingly exclusivist alternatives; development-masking-Hindutva and secularism-masking-corruption Such is the state of affairs in the country that in the battle of turf between two extreme ideologies social harmony and economic progress appear as if pitted against each other and when faced with a choice the masses have increasingly chosen the latter over the former In dire straits AFP The latest U-turn by Nitish Kumar in Bihar marking the beginning of an end for a potential Mahagadhbandhan of 2019 is also indicative of the larger shift in the narrative of Indian politics which has seemingly moved beyond the politics of mandir-masjid and mandal-kamandal to the politics of ek bharat-swacch bharat The credit for this humungous shift goes to the BJP that has been able to successfully cash in on the anti-elite sentiment in the country The swacchta abhiyan launched by Narendra Modi-led NDA government with its social overtones and political undertones has been able to provide a sheen of corruption free governance to the party’s overarching goal of promoting Hindutva Interestingly the BJP has been able to re-create its image from a party of the petty bourgeoisie including the upper middle class and the traders to a party of the poor and the outclassed The grander narratives associated with economic initiatives such as demonetisation GST and electoral funding reforms are all targeted at consolidating a voter base that was earlier outside its purview Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal adulation of Bhimrao Ambedkar which included a symbolic naming of numerous government schemes after him (the popular Bharat Interface for Money also known as the ‘BHIM’ app being a case in point) in addition to the election of ‘Dalit leader’ Ram Nath Kovind as president have worked for creating grander pro-Dalit narratives for the BJP Therefore by positioning itself as a pro-poor pro-Dalit party the BJP has been able to create a broader version of Hindutva which is more encompassing and accommodative towards the socially outcasts and economically marginalised The link between poverty and caste has been exploited well by the BJP given that most of its economic initiatives have been launched with a pro-poor face In promulgating the politics of caste and class the BJP has therefore created linkages between development and Hindutva such that its economic manoeuvres provide a push to its social agendas It is this successful exploitation of the caste-class politics which has propelled the BJP as a party of the masses such that in almost all the elections held after its victory in 2014 the BJP has been able to garner the largest share of votes and converted them into successful political mandates With Nitish Kumar re-joining the NDA camp the Opposition has lost out on a potential anti-Modi face for the 2019 elections While the immediate brunt of Nitish’s decision will be borne by Lalu Prasad’s RJD in Bihar the long term impact of Nitish’s ghar wapasi will be felt by the Congress which faces a nation-wide decimation given the lack of a credible national leadership What is more worrisome for the Indian democracy is that the Opposition has been unable to find a counter to BJP’s grander narratives of development-masking-Hindutva politics The pitch for secular politics has not been able to cover for the fact that the Opposition is still relying on its old tainted leadership to counter the new form of forces unleashed by the BJP As the Opposition continues to face rout in regional elections the parties have found themselves increasingly reluctant to do away with the old order led by the older elite By raking up corruption as a major political issue the BJP has been able to capture the imagination of the masses a point that has been tragically missed by the opposition ranks While Bihar 2015 could have been an important turning point for the opposition the continuing practice of corruption nepotism and mal-administration has led us to Bihar 2017 which has effectively reversed any progress made on the front of the Mahagathbandhan The lack of a genuine political opposition to the NDA in 2019 is problematic for two reasons Firstly as has been witnessed in the last three years the BJP has been unwilling to rein in its fringe which has gone on a rampage against ‘beef eating Muslims’ Therefore while there has been a consolidation of the Hindu society the polarisation of the Hindus and the Muslims has sharpened the divide Secondly there has been a concerted attack by the ruling government on the spaces of dissent in the country under the garb of nationalism Lack of a genuine political opposition in Parliament will further shrink the space for dissent by the civil society Much to the chagrin of many the blame for the political rout of the old elite however can be placed squarely on their own shoulders The reluctance to give way to a new political order both within the individual parties and in the larger political space has created a situation wherein the opposition clearly appears less democratic and more elitist than the ruling BJP The BJP’s emphasis on inner-party democracy has resonated well with the masses who have come to value democratic participation in the political process and economic freedom over other socio-political freedoms The Opposition’s continued reliance on lineages and dynasties has worked to alienate a large section of the masses who see the old order as a symbol of mass corruption and loot The wider debate over the issue of nepotism has penetrated deep within the psyche of the common man who views dynastic politics as antithetical to the ethos of democracy and therefore a vote for BJP is essentially a vote against dynastic politics and political patronage The states where the BJP hasn’t been able to capture the imagination of the voters are essentially the states where the ruling government is not viewed as dynastic or elitist This is the reason why Mamata Banerjee continues to do well in West Bengal Kerala is still predominantly a Left bastion Chandrababu Naidu is still an icon of Andhra Pradesh’s development while Captain Amarinder Singh’s non-dynastic brand of governance has worked to trump the Akalis in Punjab In the case of every state the vote by the masses has essentially been a vote against dynastic succession and political snobbery The Opposition’s continued reliance on la familas and tainted old guards therefore hasn’t helped their political cause The amalgamation of class and caste has therefore led to a tectonic shift in the politics of this country To counter the BJP’s political manoeuvres the Opposition will therefore need to shed some old habits discard the old order and replace the old guards Unless there is a major restructuring in the ranks of the Opposition it will be difficult for them to work on issues that can truly resonate with the demands of the restructured electorate By: Tech Desk | Updated: February 4 2017 10:01 am Motorola Moto G5 will hit stores soon after being unveiled at MWC 2017 says a new leak Related News Lenovo Motorola’s Moto G5

coming at the event There is confusion on whether there will be a Moto G5 Plus version or the Moto G5 Play like last time Watch all our videos from Express Technology Earlier an alleged specifications sheet of Moto G5 was leaked by a Brazilian tech site Technoblog which listed a model name “Moto G5 XT1672” Specifications for the Moto G5 Plus include 55-inch FHD display Snapdragon 625 processor while the Moto G5 XT1672 will have a smaller 5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display and a Snapdragon 430 processor Previously the Moto G4 Play was the phone with the less heavy-duty specifications The Moto G5 which looks like it will be equivalent of the G4 Play from last year will have 2GB RAM 32GB of internal storage microSD card support and a 2800mAh battery inside It will sport a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and will run Android 70 Nougat out of the box Check out the tweet here Motorola Moto G5 will be in retail shortly after MWC launch it seems – this

mid-range smartphone with pure Android as the highlight In 2016 we saw Motorola really improve the Moto G series with the 16 MP rear camera on the Moto G4 Plus smartphone In our review the Moto G4 Plus’ camera was very capable performer even in low-light which considering the launch price of Rs 14999 The Moto G4 Plus sported a 55-inch FHD display Snapdragon 617 processor 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and a 3000mAh battery So it will be interesting to see how the Moto G5 improves on these specifications The mid-range smartphone market especially in India has a lot of competition in the Rs 10000-Rs

weightlifting World Championships gold medal since 1995 The gold medal was an upset of sorts considering that Mirabai’s combined lift of 194kg — 85kg in snatch and 109kg in clean and jerk — was one kg over the best attempt of the overwhelming favourite from Thailand Thunya Sukcharoen in the women’s 48kg category Mirabai’s gold medal — India’s first at the prestigious World Championships since Karnam Malleswari’s medal in 1995 — also presented the 23-year-old lifter with redemption of sorts as she had failed to get an overall total in the women’s 48kg event at last year’s Rio Olympics which was her debut appearance at the grandest stage of all She later admitted she suffered a bad bout of nerves which led her to successfully lift just one of her six attempts — three in snatch and three in clean and jerk Mirabai could not lift any of her attempts in clean and jerk — a 104kg try followed by two 106kg tries — while in snatch she got only her second attempt correct out of the three chances After failing to lift 82kg in her first attempt she managed to somehow hold on to the weight in her second chance Mirabai has been widely seen as a successor to Malleswari who won a bronze medal for India at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 The World Championships gold is another reason to mark her as one of India’s brightest prospects in the discipline She has previously clinched a silver
