first_imgMediaTek and Samsung are likely to gain some traction, owing to the ongoing restrictions on Huawei that also offers its HiSilicon Kirin chips. The Chinese company had a share of 16 percent in the second quarter and stood third, as per Counterpoint.Is this the end of the Samsung Galaxy Note series as we know it? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. Samsung is set to supply its smartphone processor Exynos to Chinese smartphone makers Oppo and Xiaomi in 2021, according to a report. The South Korean company is said to give its Exynos chips for some budget smartphones of the Chinese companies as early as the first half of next year. With the new move, Samsung could make the competition tougher for Qualcomm, which offers its Snapdragon system-on-chips (SoCs) to various manufacturers in China and around the world. The San Diego-based chip maker, however, faces heat from MediaTek that also supplies its in-house mobile processors to various companies globally and comes second in the race.The System LSI Business unit of Samsung is planning to supply Exynos chips to companies including Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi, according to a report by South Korean news site BusinessKorea. The company is reportedly set to begin with the entry-level models initially, though it may offer its SoCs for third-party premium smartphones after gaining some recognition in the market.- Advertisement – Samsung is said to have reduced the intrinsic supply of its Exynos SoCs due to lower profit margin. It still offers Exynos 990 on its premium phones in India. However, the company decided not to use the top-end chipset for its Galaxy S20 models reaching the Korean market and preferred Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 instead.Having said that, Samsung previously supplied Exynos 880 and Exynos 980 chips to Vivo for its phones. The company is also working on launching the Exynos 1080 SoC next week that is said to be a part of the upcoming Vivo X60. The chip is, however, also speculated to power Samsung’s Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72, though it’s not likely to debut on the Galaxy S21 series.According to the data provided by market research firm Counterpoint Research, Qualcomm led the market of mobile processors in the second quarter, with a market share of 29 percent. The share dropped three percent compared to last year, though. MediaTek, on the other hand, came second with a share of 26 percent. However, Samsung faced a tough fight with Huawei and came fourth with a 13 percent share.- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

PGNiG receives second LNG load at Klaipeda

first_img“The Polish LNG consumption market is already sufficiently broad and involves the use of LNG in the transport sector as well as the supply of LNG to customers who are distant from the natural gas network. On the other hand, as owners of an infrastructure in the port of Klaipėda, we receive enquiries from various companies in the marine sector regarding the possibility of bunkering LNG-powered vessels or replenishing the capacity of LNG-powered trucks. There is still a lot of work to be done in this area, in terms of adjusting port shipping rules and port charges, as well as promoting LNG infrastructural development projects at public level in order to motivate the market”, said Darius Šilenskis, CEO of KN. Courtesy of Klaipedos Nafta Klaipedos Nafta noted in its statement on Wednesday the volume received is approximately 3,200 cubic meters. The load was delivered onboard Gasum’s LNG bunkering vessel Coralius. PGNiG added that since April, more than 100 tanker trucks loaded with LNG left the facility. According to Šilenskis, bunkering of the LNG-powered cement tanker Greenland has become a regular operation in the port of Klaipėda this year. The ship is bunkered in Malkų Įlankos Terminalas by supplying LNG in an ISO container, which is filled at the LNG reloading station. Since the first bunkering operation of this kind in March this year, ten further LNG transshipments have been carried out. Polish oil and gas company PGNiG has received the second delivery of liquefied natural gas at the KN-operated Klaipėda LNG reloading station. To remind, PGNiG has been the exclusive user of the facility since April. KN, the operator of oil and LNG terminals, has entered into a five-year strategic partnership agreement with PGNiG in November last year. “In less than five months, we received two LNG loads, and over 100 tank trucks loaded with liquefied natural gas have already left the station. It is over 1,800 tons of LNG, which equals over 27,000 MWh”, Jerzy Kwieciński, president of the PGNiG management board said.last_img read more

Is Fifty Shades grooming girls to be victims?

first_imgWorldMag.com 13 September 2014Young women who read sexually violent fiction often display the same behavioral symptoms as those who have actually been victimized, according to a study published last month in Women’s Health.The research team compared women, ages 18 to 24, who had read at least one novel in the Fifty Shades series with those who had not. Fifty Shades, one of the top-selling fiction series in history, is a trilogy of romantic novels that graphically portrays the victimization of one young woman in the throes of a romantic relationship. A movie based on the first book will come out in February.Numerous studies show that consumption of fictional material can alter beliefs and attitudes. The researchers wanted to know if it can also change behavior. They found that women who read the novels are at an increased risk of being in an abusive relationship, having an eating disorder, binge drinking, and having multiple sexual partners. Victims of sexual violence often show the same behaviors. The study did not determine whether reading such fiction causes women to engage in certain behavior or whether those already engaging in such behavior are more drawn to sexually violent fiction.Gail Dines, a professor of sociology at Wheelock College, radical feminist, and an anti-pornography advocate, believes the $96 billion pornography industry has “hyper-sexualized” girls through books, the Internet, movies, and songs. We are raising a generation of girls who, even though they have never been raped, are exhibiting the same symptoms as those who have, Dines said at a conference in 2010.Girls look to culture for cues about how to be a woman and define their femininity. When all they see are hyper-sexualized role models, they come to believe that is what it means to be a woman, and they mimic what they see, Dines said. The culture affects even those girls who don’t want to dress and act in a hyper-sexual manner because those who do are the ones who get attention from boys. The girls who don’t go along are invisible, and no adolescent girl wants to be invisible.http://www.worldmag.com/2014/09/is_fifty_shades_grooming_girls_to_be_victimslast_img read more

Hospitals are to start testing all citizens that exhibit COVID-19 symptoms

first_imgStatewide—Indiana seems to fall short on a daily basis of utilizing the capacity of test processing.  In order to know if we are truly flattening the curve, the amount of test processed will need to go up while the number of people with positive test results goes down. During Governor Holcomb’s daily press conference on Tuesday, a question was asked in regards to when will guidelines for hospitals, clinics, and other testing facilities be broader to allow anyone to be tested. Dr. Kristina Box, the Indiana State Department of Health Commissioner stated that she wants the health care professionals to test anyone that at this point in time if they have any reason to suspect COVID-19 or any risk factors. Dr. Box stated that it also wants to continue to test those admitted to the hospitals even if the chest x-rays or ct scan is clearly compatible with COVID-19.  The testing sites will be opening up the scope of testing to include family members of health care workers and first responders.last_img read more

Pardew: Palace have nothing to lose

first_img “We’ve got a team with the pressure off at the moment,” Pardew said. “I think for Mr Pellegrini and his team it’ll worry them that we’re at home and our stadium is obviously very buoyant. We’re a dangerous team to play. “You’ve got the two contrasts – a team playing under pressure and it’s a bonus game for us. “I’ve been serving it up to my players as that so we play with a freedom. “Sometimes when you play the top teams you don’t really have to worry about the work rate or discipline. Nine times out of 10 players know they need to do that. “It’s the other side of the game. Keeping the ball, having the ambition, flair and confidence to take the top teams on. “That’s something that will be important on Monday night – we’ve got to show that.” Palace sat in the bottom three when Pardew arrived in January but the new manager has turned the club’s season around with an excellent run of form. Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has warned Manchester City his side have nothing to lose on Monday night and wants the Eagles to put on a show against the reigning champions. City sit nine points behind league leaders Chelsea after the Blues beat Stoke on Saturday, while the reigning champions have also been overtaken by Arsenal and Manchester United to lie fourth. Palace meanwhile look to have already achieved their objective of securing Barclays Premier League survival, with six wins in 10 league games since Pardew took over at the start of the year. “The results we have gained have been terrific and beyond expectations really,” Pardew said. “Across the board we have had a lift and the biggest factor has been the psychology. “A new manager has come in with new ideas, we won the first game and that is always important. “The belief has stayed with us. We have had a couple of defeats but we have kicked on again. “The Man City game is one we could easily lose but I don’t think we will lose confidence whatever the result.” Press Associationlast_img read more
