Nokia will return with smartphones in 2017

first_imgNokia is making a comeback, is old news. Nokia will return with smartphones sometime in 2017, is news fresh from the oven. The information comes straight from the horse’s mouth, well sort of. Nokia’s investor-focused presentation PDF file has found its way to the Internet and at least two slides there in seemingly confirm that Nokia-branded smartphones are indeed coming in 2017. Moreover, Finland-based company called HMD will manufacture these smartphones in partnership with Foxconn, it has been re-confirmed.Although, the slides make no mention of the estimated time frame around which Nokia will launch its smartphones, previous reports have suggested that Android-based Nokia phones would be released some time in Q2 2017 which means ideally the company should make some sort of announcement regarding the same at the upcoming MWC event in February. The fact that Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri will be hosting a keynote at the event also raises lots of possibilities.As per the presentation slides, HMD holds a ten-year exclusive agreement for using the Nokia brand on mobile phones. The company will invest a minimum of 500 million Euros in marketing in the first three years alone and will broadly deal with developing (marketing) and selling all Nokia-branded smartphones and accessories.”HMD has been founded to provide a focused, independent home for a full range of Nokia-branded feature phones, smartphones and tablets. HMD’s new smartphone and tablet portfolio will be based on Android, uniting one of the world’s iconic mobile brands with the leading mobile operating system and app development community,” Nokia had earlier said in a statement.advertisementNokia is said to be working on at least two high-end Android phones: one with 5.2-inch display and another with a 5.5-inch screen. Both the phones are said to sport a 2K resolution display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor under the hood. On the camera front, the high-end phones from Nokia are said to come with a 22.6-megapixel camera on the rear with LED flash and support for 4K video recording.Also Read: Brace yourself.

Long-Term Charters Keep Teekay Afloat

first_imgzoom Teekay LNG Partners L.P. reported adjusted net income of USD 46.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, compared to USD 48.2 million for the same period of the prior year. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, Teekay LNG  reported adjusted net income of USD 131.1 million, compared to USD 128.7 million for the same period of the prior year.Teekay LNG says that the adjusted net income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 decreased from the same period in the prior year, mainly due to the sale of three 2000 and 2001-built conventional tankers, Tenerife Spirit, Algeciras Spirit, and Huelva Spirit between December 2013 and August 2014, which were partially offset by the acquisitions of, and contributions from, the two Awilco LNG carriers acquired by the company in late-2013.The nine month net income increase was mainly due to the same factors, as well as to higher earnings from the company’s LPG carriers in the Exmar LPG BVBA joint venture.During the third quarter of 2014, Teekay LNG generated distributable cash flow of USD 64.2 million, compared to USD 64.6 million in the same quarter of the previous year.The slight decrease in distributable cash flow was primarily due to the sale of three 2000 and 2001-built conventional tankers between December 2013 and August 2014 and related restructuring charges, which were partially offset by the company’s acquisition and charter-back of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers from Awilco LNG ASA (Awilco) in September and November 2013.“In contrast to the recent volatility in the equity markets, the Partnership continues to generate stable cash flows from our growing portfolio of long-term, fee-based charter contracts which have an average remaining contract duration of approximately 13 years,” said Peter Evensen , Chief Executive Officer of Teekay GP LLC. “With strong fundamentals in the liquefied gas market, the Partnership continues to add to its existing pipeline of over USD 2.5 billion of committed fleet growth, most of which is scheduled to deliver between 2016 and 2020, including 15 LNG carrier newbuildings and nine LPG carrier newbuildings. The Partnership’s efforts to pursue additional accretive growth opportunities continue to yield results. Last week, we agreed to acquire from I.M. Skaugen a 2003-built LPG carrier, the Norgas Napa, along with a five-year charter back to Skaugen at a fixed-rate plus potential upside through a profit sharing component. This directly-owned on-the-water vessel will be immediately accretive to the Partnership’s distributable cash flows and provide near-term growth, which builds upon and complements our existing pool of committed longer-dated growth investments.”Press Releaselast_img read more

Canada to Launch Revamped Ferry on Saint John-Digby Route

first_imgzoom The government of Canada plans to retire the Ro-Ro passenger ferry MV Princess of Acadia, currently serving the Saint John – Digby route, and replace it with the 2000-built MV Fundy Rose as of July 18.Back in October 2014, Canada’s government bought the MV Blue Star Ithaki from a private ferry operator located in Greece at a cost of approximately CAD 44.6 million.The vessel arrived in Canada on December 2, 2014 and was sent to Halifax for an engine overhaul and the conversion of the engines from heavy fuel to marine diesel. Additional refit work was also done to the vessel including replacing flooring surfaces, adding vessel fenders, installing a truckers lounge, constructing a children’s play area and a business lounge; and painting of car decks and exterior surfaces.The Saint John-Digby ferry service is operated year-round by Bay Ferries Ltd. Since 2006, the government of Canada has provided approximately CAD 45 million to support this service.”This is an exciting time for all Canadians, especially those in the Maritimes, as the MV Fundy Rose enters into service. This ferry service provides safe transportation for residents and visitors; moves goods; generates jobs; and stimulates the regional economy and enhances the efficiency and reliability of the transportation corridor, as a whole. May all who sail on her enjoy a safe voyage, fair wind, and following seas,” said Lisa Raitt, Canada’s Minister of Transport.The Fundy Rose is 124 metres in length and 19 metres in breadth, and has the capacity to carry 1,317 passengers and 245 cars.last_img read more

‘Special day’ for history-making woman umpire

first_imgWindhoek (Namibia): Australia’s Claire Polosak said it was a “special day” as she made history in becoming the first female umpire to stand in a men’s one-day international. The 31-year-old officiated in the final of the World Cricket League Division 2 between hosts Namibia and Oman at the weekend and admitted she would “sleep well” after her performance. “It was a special day for everyone and I wanted to do the best I can,” said Polosak. “There was a little bit of intensity out there, some argy-bargy between the teams but I nipped it in the bud with a quiet word. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju”Everyone responded well, there were no issues with player behaviour.” Polosak has already stood in 15 women’s ODIs, the first one in November 2016 between Australia and South Africa. She has also umpired the semi-final of the Women’s T20 World Cup in 2018 between England and India and four matches at the 2017 Women’s World Cup. “I had a couple of big calls,” she added of Saturday’s game which was won by Namibia by 145 runs. “Big caught behinds, lbws which I was pleased with. You never walk off completely happy but I will sleep well tonight.” Polosak has already blazed a trail — she was the first woman to stand in a men’s domestic fixture in Australia in her first List A match in Australia in 2017. In December last year, she and her South Australian counterpart Eloise Sheridan became the first female umpires to officiate on-field together during a professional match in Australia when the Adelaide Strikers hosted the Melbourne Stars in the WBBL.last_img read more

CBS and Viacom announce deal to reunite

NEW YORK — CBS and Viacom said Tuesday they will reunite, bringing together their networks and the Paramount movie studio as traditional media giants challenge streaming companies like Netflix.Viacom owns Paramount Pictures and pay TV channels such as Comedy Central, MTV and BET, while CBS has a broadcast network, television stations, Showtime and a stake in The CW over-the-air network.Analysts say the reunion will help both companies navigate an ever-competitive streaming landscape. MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson said Paramount’s movie library could be added to Showtime’s premium networks and streaming service, for instance, while CBS’ streaming service could get a boost from Viacom’s Nickelodeon video.CBS was one of the first media companies to launch its own streaming service, CBS All Access. The $6-a-month service now has a new “Star Trek” series, a revival of “The Twilight Zone” and archives of old and current broadcast shows. CBS says All Access and its Showtime streaming services have 8 million subscribers combined. That’s far less than the 60 million U.S. subscribers that Netflix has, though it’s comparable with the estimated number of subscribers to HBO Now, that network’s stand-alone streaming service.Now, Disney, Comcast’s NBCUniversal and AT&T’s WarnerMedia are jumping in with their own services as well to challenge Netflix, Amazon, Google and other tech companies encroaching into entertainment. To expand its library, Disney bought Fox’s entertainment businesses for $71 billion in March, while DirecTV owner AT&T bought Time Warner last year for $81 billion.Moody’s media analyst Neil Begley said the CBS-Viacom reunion would help cut costs and provide greater scale for creating and distributing content.“There’s growing pressure on companies to bulk up content libraries and merging is the easiest and safest way to do that,” Begley said.Viacom CEO Bob Bakish will become CEO of the combined company. Acting CBS CEO Joe Ianniello will become chairman and CEO of the CBS division. The deal is an all-stock transaction. CBS shareholders will own about 61 per cent of the combined company and Viacom shareholders will own 39 per cent. The companies say the combined company will have $28 billion in revenue.The deal will be beneficial to earnings and lead to $500 million in cost savings, the companies say.The reunion is expected to be completed by the end of the year.The combined company would still be small compared with behemoths like Disney, with a vast library of movies and shows, and Netflix, the pioneer in streaming technology. CBS has a market value of $18 billion and Viacom has a market value of about $11.7 billion. Disney’s is nearly $245 billion and Netflix is at $136 billion.Begley said the combined entity might have to consider other acquisitions to keep up with competitors. However, the number of possible targets is dwindling, he said, with what’s left mostly smaller companies such as the Discovery and the AMC television networks and the MGM and Lionsgate movie studios.CBS and Viacom have had an on-again, off-again relationship.CBS split from Viacom in 2006, but both remained controlled by National Amusements. Shari Redstone, daughter of media mogul Sumner Redstone, runs the holding company.The split was a way to separate Viacom’s networks like MTV, Nickelodeon and BET, which were very successful at the time, from the slower growth of the CBS network.But over time, the two companies’ fates were reversed. CBS under longtime chief Les Moonves became more profitable and Viacom struggled, hurt by weakness in its Paramount studio and people dropping cable in favour of streaming.A recombination makes sense now because media companies are bulking up their content offerings to better compete for ad dollars. But Moonves was against the idea, as CBS was stronger and more profitable than Viacom.Moonves’ ouster last year in the face of multiple sexual misconduct allegations changed the dynamic. Under an agreement, Shari Redstone agreed not to push for a reunion for at least two years, but that left open the possibility of CBS itself pushing for it.Mae Anderson, The Associated Press read more

Iraq is at crossroads warns Annan as reports say 100 civilians are

“The Iraqi people and their leaders have arrived at an important crossroads: if they are able to build firm foundations for the common interest of all Iraqis, the promise of peace and prosperity will be within reach,” Mr. Annan says in his latest report to the Security Council, which was released today.“However, if current patterns of discord and violence prevail for much longer, there is a grave danger of a breakdown of the Iraqi State, and potentially of civil war, which would be detrimental not only to the Iraqi people, but also to countries in the region and the international community in general.”The report, covering the period from 2 June until 2 September, describes Iraq as “one of the most violent conflict areas in the world,” adding that according to the latest Government figures, the number of civilians killed has increased considerably and stands at an average of 100 people per day, while more than 14,000 were reportedly wounded per month.Faced with growing violence and insecurity, the Iraqi Government has focused its political efforts on promoting national reconciliation and dialogue, Mr. Annan says, and while he notes “significant achievements” in the political transition process, he points out “there can ultimately be no military solutions to the many challenges” the country faces.He acknowledges that the “burden of leadership is a heavy one,” and notes in particular the growing threat of militia activities, urging the Government to do “everything possible to progressively foster an environment conducive to the demobilization, disarming and reintegration” of these forces.Mr. Annan also highlights the role of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), noting that although the country’s insecurity had “severely constrained” its ability to operate effectively, the Mission was exploring how it can maximize its impact and prioritize its tasks.He also welcomed the Security Council’s decision last month to extend UNAMI’s mandate for another year, adding that the UN also wanted to engage in “strategic dialogue” on future plans for the country and that was why it would convene a high-level international meeting in New York next week with Iraqi representatives.“A vital element in the quest for addressing the security and human rights situation is the improvement of living conditions for all Iraqis,” Mr. Annan points out, highlighting that one important Government initiative to deal with this is the International Compact with Iraq.The Compact, which is co-chaired by the UN, is a new partnership with the global community that was launched in July and aims to pursue political, economic and social development over the next five years in the strife-torn country.Mr. Annan notes that “considerable preparatory work” has already been done to create an effective framework for the Compact in which the Government can develop its economic programme according to clearly defined priorities, benchmarks and commitments. And yesterday an international agreement was adopted to move the process further along.Representatives of 13 Governments, the League of Arab States, the World Bank and other regional and international organizations met in the United Arab Emirates to welcome the Iraqi Government’s commitment to “making urgent progress” on national reconciliation, political inclusion and other measures. The Abu Dhabi Declaration also pledged to work closely with the authorities in further developing the Compact with the UN and the World Bank, and “recognized the need to expeditiously complete the development” through a “broad consultative process at the national, regional and international levels.” The meeting also pledged to work towards adoption of the Compact by the end of this year. read more

US consumers boost spending 03 per cent in August as their income

US consumers boost spending 0.3 per cent in August as their income grows 0.4 per cent. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Sep 27, 2013 8:42 am MDT WASHINGTON – U.S. consumers increased their spending slightly last month as their income grew at the fastest pace in six months. The figures point to only modest economic growth in the July-September quarter.Consumers’ spending on goods and services rose 0.3 per cent in August, the Commerce Department said Friday. That’s up from a 0.2 per cent gain in July, which was slightly more than the 0.1 per cent reported last month.Income rose 0.4 per cent in August, the best gain since February and up from a 0.2 per cent July increase. Private wages and salaries rose 0.5 per cent, while the government wages and salaries rose 0.2 per cent.The government figures would have been higher if not for forced federal furloughs that reduced wages and salaries by $7.3 billion.Consumer spending drives 70 per cent of economic activity. Many analysts say the increases are not enough to accelerate economic growth in the third quarter from the 2.5 per cent annual rate in the April-June quarter.“With more money coming in, consumers spent a little, just a little, more freely,” said Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets.And Americans grew more pessimistic this month about the economy, their own finances, and government budget policies, according to a survey of consumer confidence released Friday.The University of Michigan says its final reading of consumer sentiment dropped to 77.5 in September from 82.1 in August. It was the second straight decline after confidence reached a six-year high of 85.1 in July.Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, predicts the economy is growing at an annual rate of 2 per cent to 2.5 per cent in the July-September quarter. Still, the pickup in August spending could signal stronger growth in the final three months of the year.But other economists are less hopeful. Peter Newland, an economist at Barclays, said that the modest increase did not change Barclay’s forecast for growth at a 1.7 per cent rate.Americans saved some of the extra money they earned last month. The personal savings rate edged up to 4.6 per cent of after-tax income, a slight improvement from 4.5 per cent in July.Consumers are benefiting from mild inflation. An inflation gauge tied to consumer spending increased 1.2 per cent over the past 12 months, well below the Federal Reserve’s 2 per cent target. Some Fed officials have argued that the central bank should not start reducing its support for the economy until inflation has risen closer to the Fed’s target.A recent spike in interest rates and mixed signals from the job market were key reasons the Fed decided held off last week on reducing its $85-billion-a-month in bond purchases. The Fed also scaled back its economic growth estimate for this year and next.There are some signs that consumers may be better positioned to step up spending soon.The number of people seeking unemployment benefits has sunk to its lowest point in six years because few companies are laying anyone off anymore. That has led some economists to predict that employers added 200,000 jobs or more jobs in September — the most since February.And gas prices are falling again. The average national price for a gallon of regular gas on Thursday was $3.43. That’s 11 cents cheaper than a month ago and the lowest since January. read more

Zarko Markovic doesnt show up for national team Kastratovic I will resign

The Zarko Markovic and Montenegro national team saga have its epilogue. Frisch auf Goppingen’s right back, Zarko Markovic, as it was expected, did not show up at the scheduled meet-up of the national team and trainings. Official explanation from Zarko Markovic did not arrive, and he did not play at the World Championship in Spain either.Zoran Kastratovic, Montenegro’s coach said that he was angry with Markovic’s behaviour: “It’s normal that every coach will want to rely on such a player. He plays greatly in both – attack and defence. It’s up to him if he wants to play for the national team, and when he does that, I can responsibly say that after his first game played I will resign from the post coach of the national team”. crna goraGoppingenkastratovicmarkovicmONTENEGRO ← Previous Story Lazarov for Marca: “Spain are favorites, but we will try to win a point” Next Story → Marko Vujin about EHF CL finish: Kielce and Metalurg don’t deserve to play at F4 read more

L’échec du sommet de Copenhague a conduit à une remise en cause des compétences de l’ONU concernant l’organisation de la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique.Jusqu’alors, une seule conférence avait été fixée, du 31 mai au 11 juin à Bonn, avant le sommet de Cancun. En 2009, cinq sessions avaient eu lieu pour préparer le conférence de Copenhague.

Deux nouveaux smartphones Samsung Galaxy avec dualSIM pour 2012

first_imgDeux nouveaux smartphones Samsung Galaxy avec dual-SIM pour 2012Le constructeur sud coréen vient de dévoiler, histoire de donner l’eau à la bouche pour l’année qui arrive, deux nouveaux smartphones: le Galaxy Y Duos et le Galaxy Y Pro Duos. Ils seront équipés d’Android et proposeront deux emplacements SIM.La dual-SIM, tout de même peu répandue chez nous, permet de coupler deux puces dans un seul téléphone. Lors de déplacements professionnels ou par loisir, cela évite toujours de se promener avec plusieurs téléphones. En plus de cet atout, chacun des deux Galaxy embarque un processeur à 832 MHz, 512 de RAM, 2Go de mémoire interne, les connexions Bluetooth 3.0 et Wi-Fi, un APN de 3 mégapixels ainsi qu’un GPS, l’ensemble tournant sous Android 3.2 Gingerbread. Le Galaxy Y Duos possède un écran tactile LCD de 3,14 pouces alors que le Y Pro Duos dispose d’un écran de 2,6 pouces et d’un clavier physique (côté professionnel oblige). L’aspect pro de ce modèle ressort encore plus avec Polaris, une application permettant de visionner et éditer des documents Office, Find My Mobile et Social Hub. Esthétiquement parlant, les deux Galaxy se fondent dans la gamme habituelle de Samsung, donc pas de surprise de ce côté là.Ces deux nouveaux Galaxy devraient arriver l’année prochaine en Europe mais aucune date ni prix n’ont été communiqués.Le 23 décembre 2011 à 19:10 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more
