US restrictions wont affect 5G plans Huawei

first_imgBeijing: Ren Zhengfei, founder and CEO of Chinese tech giant Huawei, on Tuesday denied that restrictions imposed by the US on its products and supplies will affect the roll-out of 5G technology. In an interview with Chinese state media, Ren said that the decision by some American tech companies to stop selling components and software to Huawei “doesn’t mean much” and added that the company was already prepared to deal with the ban, reports Efe news. “We can make chips as good as those made by US companies, but it does not mean that we will not buy chips from them,” Ren said. Huawei’s founder acknowledged that the clash with the US was inevitable owing to the company’s interest in becoming one of the global leaders of the 5G technology and said that “others will definitely not be able to catch up with Huawei in 5G technologies for two or three years”. “But in our business (5G), Huawei is at the forefront, though when it comes to comparison between countries, we are still far behind the United States,” he added. The Huawei executive also said that his company will not exclude US chips and that Huawei was “very grateful” to the US companies including tech multinational IBM. “Instead, we should grow together. But if there is a supply shortage, we have a backup. In the “peace period”, half of our chips are from the US companies and half from Huawei. We cannot be isolated from the world,” he said. When asked how long the crisis surrounding the company would last, Ren said the question should be directed at US President Donald Trump. “Blame should be directed at US politicians, not companies,” he said. Ren’s remarks comes a day after the US Department of Commerce issued a temporary general license lifting the ban on Huawei and its subsidiaries to prepare for a transition. The Department said in a statement that the decision was taken to grant “operators time to make other arrangements and the Department space to determine the appropriate long term measures for Americans and foreign telecommunications providers that currently rely on Huawei equipment for critical services”. Last week, the US included Huawei in a list of companies and individuals that would be denied access to US technologies. As an outcome of this ban, Alphabet, Google’s parent company, has revoked Huawei’s Android license, which means the Chinese telecom giant will lose access to updates to the Android operating system except those available through an open source license and also no longer have access to Google’s proprietary services such as Google Maps. Huawei on Monday said it “will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally”. “We will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem, in order to provide the best experience for all users globally,” the company said in a statement. US semi-conductor companies such as Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx Inc and Broadcom and Germany’s Infineon Technologies as well as American chip manufacturing firms including Micron Technology and Western Digital will also stop supplying components to Huawei in compliance with Trump’s order, which could delay the global roll-out of 5G networks.last_img read more

Annan sees important UN role in postconflict Iraq names special adviser

Rafeeuddin AhmedA spokesman for the Secretary-General said given the pace of events in Iraq and the widespread discussions on a potential role for the UN in post-war Iraq, Mr. Ahmed will now act as the focal point in the UN system for discussions on the various scenarios for such a role. “He will also advise the Secretary-General on any role that the Security Council might eventually mandate the UN system to carry out once the current military campaign has come to an end,” Fred Eckhard told a press briefing.The Council welcomed the appointment and agreed with the Secretary-General that any role beyond the coordination of humanitarian activities in Iraq, and other activities mandated by existing resolutions, would first require a new mandate from the Security Council, Mr. Eckhard said in a later statement.”I do expect the UN to play an important role and the UN has had a good experience in this area, whether it is an issue of political facilitation leading to the emergence of a new or interim administration,” Mr. Annan told reporters on arrival at UN Headquarters in New York shortly before his meeting with the Security Council.”We have done quite a bit of work on reconstruction, working with donor countries and other UN agencies. You have seen the work the UN has done in human rights and the area of the rule of law,” he said in answer to a question over what role the UN might have given that the United States apparently had an interim government with its own officials ready in Kuwait.Mr. Annan noted that US President George Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair were meeting in Northern Ireland today to discuss post-conflict Iraq and that the European Union had come up firmly on the side of a greater UN involvement, stressing that there were lots of areas where the UN could play a role. “But above all the UN involvement does bring legitimacy which is necessary, necessary for the country, for the region and for the peoples around the world,” he added.The Secretary-General was asked whether he was resigned to the fact that the UN would not play as great a role as it had in East Timor or Kosovo, since he had used the word facilitation rather than running a civil administration. “You have to be very careful here,” he replied. “Each crisis has its own peculiarities. Iraq is not East Timor and Iraq is not Kosovo.”Noting that Iraq already had trained personnel, a reasonably effective civil service, and engineers and others who can play a role in their own country, he added: “As we have said before, Iraqis have to be responsible for their political future, and to control their own natural resources. And whatever one can do to help the emergence of a new leadership or a new situation is what one should focus on.”Mr. Ahmed, a former Pakistani diplomat, has held numerous UN posts, including that of Under Secretary-General and Chef de Cabinet of the Secretary-General, as well as assignments in the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the World Tourism Organization and the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). Mr. Annan, who later this week will travel to London, Berlin, Paris and Moscow to discuss Iraq and a possible UN role with British, German, French and Russian leaders, met with members of the Security Council this morning to inform them of the appointment of Rafeeuddin Ahmed as his Special Adviser. Mr. Ahmed, a Pakistani, has been assisting the UN system informally since February in thinking about possible UN involvement in a post-war Iraq. Video of Kofi Annan’s press encounter read more

Jared Sullinger to leave Ohio State for NBA Draft

Jared Sullinger is heading for the NBA. Sullinger announced Wednesday that he plans to forego his final two seasons of collegiate eligibility and enter the NBA Draft during a press conference at the Schottenstein Center. “I sat down with my family and we pretty much came up with the decision and I think it’s best for me to try to go at it at the next level,” Sullinger said. “And also, I wouldn’t do anything to hurt this program or any of the guys that’s a part of this program. I just thought it was best for me to (go pro).” OSU coach Thad Matta said it was time for Sullinger to head to the NBA. “I’ve always said he’s one of the most intellectual players I’ve ever coached,” Matta said. “The timing is definitely right.” The announcement comes just four days after OSU’s NCAA Tournament run ended with a 64-62 Final Four loss to Kansas Saturday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. After the loss, Sullinger said he had not made a decision on his NBA future and did not set a timetable for announcing the decision. writer Chad Ford lists Sullinger as the No. 10 player on his ranking of the top 100 collegiate prospects. The player could become the seventh first-round NBA draft choice produced by OSU coach Thad Matta. During his two seasons in scarlet and gray, Sullinger started 73 of the 74 games he played, the now-former sophomore forward scored 1,282 points, hauled in 717 rebounds and tallied 59 blocks while also dishing out 89 assists. The Buckeyes won 65 games during his two seasons at OSU, earning the team the No. 1-overall seed and a No. 2 seed in the 2011 and 2012 NCAA Tournaments, respectively. OSU also claimed the outright 2011 Big Ten regular season championship, the 2011 Big Ten Tournament Championship and a share of the 2012 Big Ten regular season title. Sullinger received Associated Press First-Team All-American honors in consecutive seasons at the Schottenstein Center. Sullinger also racked up the 2011 Big Ten Freshman of the Year, as well as selections to the 2011 and 2012 Big Ten All-Tournament team. OSU sophomore forward Deshaun Thomas, who is suspected by some to be considering an NBA future as well, also would not set a timetable for the future of his basketball career after the Buckeyes’ loss to the Jayhawks. From his Twitter account, @DT1UpNComin, Thomas tweeted Wednesday at about 1:20 p.m.: “Got time.”   Matta said he is in the process of gathering information from NBA teams to help Thomas make the best decision.

Fallout New Vegas mod Autumn Leaves is worth a break from Fallout

first_imgAll the cool kids with their fancy new graphics cards are playing something called Fallout 4 these days, but Fallout: New Vegas is still alive and thriving thanks to its mod community. There were several major mods released in the weeks leading up to Fallout 4’s launch, and Autumn Leaves is a story mod that claims it has a DLC-sized experience. We played our way through it, and were pleasantly surprised to discover that it lives up to that claim.Autumn Leaves adds a new location to the New Vegas map, a hidden library just outside the town of Novac. It’s easily accessed by low-level characters, and it is close to a place that players will visit during the main story. As soon as the mod is activated, a fast travel option become available, so it can even be played with newly-created characters.The new area is a vault-like library that was built before the Great War, to keep a selection of pre-war books safe in the event of an apocalypse. It isn’t an official Vault-Tec vault, and there is no cruel social experiment happening there, just a sincere effort to preserve knowledge.When the Courier arrives, they find that only the robot caretakers are still alive. Their human creator is quickly revealed to be long-dead. It is a mystery that only the player can solve. However, the suspicious circumstances of his death are but one of the problems that plague the library. The robot librarians, have allowed a handful of outsiders into the library over the centuries, in an effort to share their knowledge while also seeing if humanity is ready to appreciate the higher learning of the old world. Several wastelanders have come and gone, most of them leaving behind some unfinished business that the Courier must resolve.The robots are an enhanced version of the Protectrons, much more intelligent than the standard issue. These robots have all been given distinct personalities, and are self-aware. They are not quite human, and they are tragically cognizant of their limitations. Most of them are tormented by this knowledge, others have learned to deal with it. The dialog and interactions with these characters has a great deal of philosophizing about the nature of self-awareness. Sometimes this is done for laughs, but often these poor bots are sympathetic characters, struggling to evolve.Each of them has been programed to display a specific character trait, and in terms of narrative design, this makes them great NPC’s for a game. The curious one is compelled to ask the Courier to solve mysteries. A compassionate medical bot wants to ease suffering, and prevent deaths, so she’s ready to help with many of these quests. Another bot is programmed to be a jerk, so the player has to jump through hoops to get information and quest items from that character. These sort of traits are usually present in game NPC’s, but here there is an in-game excuse for why they exhibit such extremes.The bulk of the gameplay consists of talking to these characters, and trying to pry information out of them. There is no combat, unless the player chooses to attack first, or makes a catastrophic dialog choice. The rest of the time, players will explore the library, looking for clues about their current mission.The quest design is more like Resident Evil than Fallout, though. The vault is rather small, considering that there’s about seven hours of content here. The designers cleverly make the player bounce between a handful of NPC’s and rooms, unlocking new dialog options and locations as they progress. Many areas of the library are off limits at first, and the player has to find keys or access codes to reach them when the appropriate quest appears.There is a new set of perks with this mod, but these aren’t gained by leveling up, as with the standard perks. The perks in Autumn Leaves have to be learned by reading special books. That’s right, Knowledge Is Power — for real! These perk books can only be acquired by finding collectible items hidden around the Library. Other collectible books will provide an experience points just for reading them. Again, Knowledge Is Power!The library also has books with no game-play purpose; they just have hilarious titles that spoof real-world books, or that have humorous implications about the person reading them (the book on taxidermy has a particularly macabre implication).There is a clever new use of the “Hardcore Mode” in New Vegas. A certain moment requires the player to invest time and effort in completing a tedious project. The character becomes very hungry and thirsty, in order to represent the in-game time it takes to do the job.  It’s an interesting new mechanic that won’t appear unless players are using Hardcore Mode.The writers take a meta approach to some aspects of the story, by forcing the player to examine their own actions when playing the game. Not the actions of the character that they control, but how players themselves behave when controlling a video game character.The main storyline of New Vegas involves the playable character getting shot in the head, and this mod has a robot therapist who points out that violent, erratic, easily-distracted behavior is common in people with brain injuries (And gamers). This is probably a metaphor that was intended by the developers at Obsidian all along, but here it’s pointed out directly, and players can try to defend their gameplay style, and story choices.The voice work is excellent, particularly for the funny moments. The ambient music is utterly haunting, as well. It was composed by Pablo Coma for this project, and it is liable to stick in players’ heads after they finish the mod.Autumn Leaves arrived at an interesting time for Fallout fans. Many players will see it as a last hurrah for New Vegas, before switching to Fallout 4 forever, but other players will see it as an excuse to go back to New Vegas after they’ve completed the most compelling parts of Fallout 4.Returning to New Vegas after playing Fallout 4, there is very little difficulty. New Vegas stills plays wonderfully, although there is a phantom limb sensation when trying to hit the sprint button, or fumbling with the activate and cancel buttons when looting a corpse. Some players will struggle to overcome the urge to grab every desk fan they see because they need more screws.With these high production values, and the new mechanics, Autumn Leaves feel like a genuine piece of DLC, rather than a bundle of fan-made quests. The story is often thought-provoking, and these robots can elicit genuine pathos. The overall theme of a post-apocalyptic library that must conserve humanity’s knowledge while also sharing it, is an idea the fits very well into the Fallout universe.Although Fallout 4 will eventually allow mods on consoles, Autumn Leaves, like all other New Vegas mods, can only be played on PC. Longtime Fallout fans who have had their fill of collecting screws and adhesive in the Commonwealth should immediately try this mod.For more Fallout: New Vegas mods, check out out the video above.last_img read more

Greater China drives IHGs half year results

first_imgThe InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has released its financial results for the half year to 30 June 2010, with solid performance due to their leadership position in Greater China.”Trading strengthened as the first half progressed with global Revenue per Available Room (RevPAR) up 3.9 percent overall and 7.4 percent in the second quarter. Asia is leading the recovery with Greater China reporting RevPAR up 29.4 percent in the half,” Chief Executive of IHG, Andrew Cosslett said. Greater China’s strong regional performance was boosted by the Global Expo in Shanghai where RevPAR grew 48.4 percent. “Rates are now stabilising across the world, with most markets seeing rate growth towards the end of the first half. The economic environment does remain uncertain, however, with short booking windows and limited visibility,” Mr Cosslett said. The growth was driven by strong occupancy rates, with business travellers returning in greater number. Efforts during the economic downturn to reduce costs, drive revenue and build the strength of IHG’s system and brands helped to accommodate this growth, according to Mr Cosslett. “In the first half we signed 130 hotels and opened 148, despite the tough financing environment. The quality of these new hotels is exceptionally high, particularly in China where both our pipeline and system of open hotels are skewed towards more upscale developments.” Total gross revenue from all hotels in IHG’s system was $8.9bn, up nine percent at constant currency.Recent additions bring IHG’s total system to 656,661 rooms across 4,503 hotels, an increase of four percent. IHG also signed a further 19,126 rooms over 130 hotels, taking the pipeline to 197,431 rooms across 1,302 hotels. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: C.Clast_img read more

Five Star President and CEO Calls for Industry Unity

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Five Star President and CEO Calls for Industry Unity Ed Delgado Five Star Conference Mortgage Industry unity 2017-09-19 Brianna Gilpin Tuesday evening, Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado called for a new sense of unity, inclusion, and cooperation within the mortgage industry at the 2017 Five Star Conference and Expo.Throughout his tenure in the mortgage industry, Delgado said he has witnessed some of the most challenging times the industry has had to endure, such as the market collapse, 9/11, and now the hurricanes that have devastated U.S. shores and displaced many families. But through that, he has seen an abundance of good when the industry is faced with these crises.“Competitors become collaborators. Pettiness and vitriol is set aside in the name of compassion and understanding—policy makers spring into action to ensure that fair and responsible solutions are swiftly crafted to address the needs of many,” said Delgado.Despite the competitive nature of the industry, which is valuable for spurring new technologies and solutions, Delgado warned it shouldn’t breed chaos or result in divisiveness.“It doesn’t matter what company has the greatest market share or has been around the longest,” Delgado urged. “It is wrong to suggest that our industry is represented by a single voice, for we are an association of many, each playing a vital role in the pursuit of excellence and progress.”In fact, according to Delgado, the industry is a group of collective voices sharing a common vision to be the best it can be for the sake of homeownership. That is the reason the Five Star Institute themed its conference with one simple word: “include.”“To include all facets of leadership and services. Include stakeholders, officials, and decision makers,” Delgado said. “To demonstrate that we truly can be strong not just in the face of tragedy—but always—for all causes, at all times, for all people.”To see the full transcript of his speech, click here.center_img Share September 19, 2017 561 Views last_img read more
