(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)With the regular season officially over for college football, many upperclassmen are deciding whether or not to enter the 2019 NFL Draft. Although N’Keal Harry will have the opportunity to play in a bowl game for Arizona State, it appears the star wideout has already made up his mind about his future.Harry is arguably the best pass-catcher in the country, finishing the season with 73 receptions for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns. From the moment he took the field for the Sun Devils, he’s instantly became an offensive weapon.This isn’t his final year of eligibility, but it’s clear that he’s ready to enter the professional ranks. In a heartfelt message to his supporters on Twitter, Harry announced he’ll enter the upcoming draft.Here is the post:Thanks for everything?? #SunDevilForLife pic.twitter.com/PsIoYkWAyz— Keal (@NkealHarry15) November 26, 2018It’s apparent that he enjoyed his time with the Sun Devils, as he said “It has truly been an honor to represent Arizona State University.”Fortunately for Harry, he finished his final regular season appearance with a victory.Congratulations to him on an excellent collegiate career, and we wish him luck in his quest to become an elite wideout in the NFL.last_img read more

Jalen is a great player and I’m excited to get to play with him. It’ll be great competition for sure,” he said.”I love it. Jalen is a great player and I’m excited to get to play with him. It’ll be great competition for sure.” – @SpencerRattler is all aboard #Sooners landing @JalenHurts.— Josh McCuistion (@JLMcCuistion) January 16, 2019Rattler had previously been told by Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley that he wasn’t taking any transfer quarterbacks.That comment, though, was likely in response to the rumors surrounding Justin Fields, who has three seasons of eligibility left (and transferred to Ohio State).Hurts’ arrival to Oklahoma shouldn’t impact the future of Rattler, since the Alabama quarterback will be in Norman for just one season.last_img read more

Strong rupee lower GDP likely to tame inflation in India to 41


first_imgNew Delhi: Asian Development Bank (ADB) has lowered the inflation forecast for India during the current financial year to 4.1 per cent, on the back of gain in rupee and cut in the country’s GDP projection.India will be the main driver to lower the inflation for the South Asian region, ADB said in a supplement to Asian Development Outlook (ADO) 2019.South Asia’s inflation forecast for 2019, was revised down from 4.7 per cent to 4.5 per cent, mainly reflecting lowered forecasts for India, the ADO supplement said. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe ADO supplement has lowered India’s GDP growth forecast by 0.2 percentage points from April outlook to 7 per cent in 2019-20.”In light of a smaller-than-expected uptick in food inflation, a strengthening Indian rupee since October 2018, and a lower GDP growth forecast, this Supplement revises down inflation forecasts for India by 0.2 percentage points to 4.1 per cent in FY2019 (fiscal ending in March 2020) and 4.4 per cent in FY2020 (ending March 2021),” ADB said. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostAs per the ADO supplement, inflation projections for developing Asia were revised up a notch from 2.5 per cent to 2.6 per cent in both 2019 and 2020, reflecting higher oil prices and several domestic factors.Price fluctuations for brent crude oil continue amid various concerns affecting both supply and demand, it added.Meanwhile, the Reserve Bank in its last monetary policy review in June had raised the retail inflation forecast marginally to 3-3.1 per cent for the first half of the current fiscal citing reasons of uptick in food prices – mainly vegetables, despite expectations of a normal monsoon this season.However, the retail inflation projection for the second half of 2019-20 has been cut to 3.4-3.7 per cent as against RBI’s previous projection of 3.5-3.8 per cent.The RBI will review the monetary policy in its upcoming meeting in early August.last_img read more

Canadian man gets 51 months in border gunsmuggling case


first_imgBURLINGTON, Vt. – A Montreal man has been sentenced to 51 months in prison after he admitted smuggling about 100 handguns into Canada across the Vermont-Quebec border.Alexis Vlachos appeared in U.S. District Court in Burlington, Vt., on Tuesday.Vlachos will be given credit for the 43 months he has been in custody since he was arrested in Canada prior to his extradition to the United States.Vlachos pleaded guilty last January to the smuggling that occurred in 2010 and 2011.Some of the handguns were left in the bathroom of a library that straddles the border between Derby Line, Vt., and Stanstead, Que.He also admitted walking across the border with other handguns.In court, Vlachos apologized for his actions and said his criminal past is behind him.last_img read more

Ban Kimoon Disappointed Security Council Didnt Support Him Against Morocco


Rabat – Ban Ki-moon seems to be in a bad mood in the last months of his second mandate. After he expressed anger and disappointment with the Moroccan people for organizing a march last Sunday to condemn his biased statement in favor of the Algeria-backed Polisario Front, he is now disappointed with the Security Council for not supporting him in his feud with Morocco.During the closed-door meeting it held on Thursday afternoon, the Security Council failed to reach a unanimous position on the dispute between Rabat and Ban Ki-moon over his biased statements with regards to the Western Sahara. During a press briefing in the media stakeout, Ambassador Ismael Gaspar Martins of Angola, council president this month, told reporters that the 15-member council voiced its concern, but agreed that every member states should approach Morocco to diffuse tension and “ensure everything is evolving in a positive manner.”Ban Ki-moon was probably hoping he would receive clear words of support from the Security Council.Echoing the UN chief’s disappointment, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said: “It would have been better had we received clearer words from the president of the Security Council.”Dujarric went to add that Ban Ki-moon would raise the issue during his monthly luncheon with members of the Security Council.France, one of the five permanent members of the council and Morocco’s first strategic ally, led the group of countries who opposed the adoption of a strong statement in support of Ban Ki-moon. Paris, Spain, Egypt, Senegal and Japan were in favor of addressing the issue bilaterally with Morocco.In an attempt to reduce tension, French foreign minister, Jean Marc Ayrault held a telephone conversation with Ban Ki-moon and offered to mediate between him and Rabat. read more

DR Congo UN mission trains police on sexual violence


21 August 2008The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is holding training sessions for the vast African nation’s police in a bid to ensure that victims and witnesses of sexual violence are better protected. The training courses were carried out by the human rights branch – which monitors and documents rights abuses across the country – of the mission, known by its French acronym MONUC.Given the high rates of sexual violence in the DRC, international and local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have joined forces with the Government to tackle the scourge. Under this “joint initiative” framework, the UN is in charge of the legal and judicial aspects to help victims find justice and to protect their human rights.In a report made public last month, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that tackling both sexual and gender-based violence poses a “complex challenge” for the DRC.“While data remains imprecise, there are indications that almost one third of new cases reported through the Joint Initiative emanate from North Kivu, primarily from internally displaced persons (IDPs),” he wrote, adding that sexual violence has also been reported to be on the rise in South Kivu.The report also raised concerns about impunity for crimes committed, especially by State agents, especially the police.Nearly 40 police inspectors and investigators in the territories of Beni, Butembo and Lubero in the North Kivu province were educated this month on new laws regarding sexual crimes; procedures for helping victims of such violence; and protection of victims and witnesses, among other topics.MONUC has also trained Government forces, known as FARDC, in child protection, human rights, sexual violence and military justice.In June, close to 1,800 soldiers underwent a course in South Kivu as part of the mission’s zero-tolerance campaign on recruiting children into armed forces.This week-long human rights component was part of a broader 12-week course that also covered military tactics, weapons handling, logistics and professional ethics.To date, MONUC has trained some one dozen FARDC integrated battalions, and it continues to support the efforts of the Congolese Government in the creation of a professional army, with the goal of training 28 FARDC integrated battalions by September 2009.In a June report, MONUC found that FARDC was one of the biggest human rights violators, with its members being accused of rapes, torture, armed robberies, extortion and arbitrary arrests.On completing the training, the troops were deployed in South Kivu, an area which sees frequent attacks from militias and foreign armed groups, to consolidate State authority. read more

UN official calls on Israel to halt plans to relocate Palestinian Bedouin


“We are monitoring the situation in Khan al Ahmar closely and are deeply concerned by what we see here, and in the scores of other vulnerable Bedouin communities,” UN Humanitarian Coordinator Jamie McGoldrick said.Mr. McGoldrick visited the Khan al Ahmar-Abu al Helu, located on the outskirts of East Jerusalem in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, with Scott Anderson, the UN Relief and Works Agency’s Director of Operations in the West Bank, and Palestinian officials.“We call on the Israeli authorities to respect their legal obligations, as the occupying power, including through stopping the demolition of Palestinian-owned structures and ceasing plans for the relocation of Palestinian Bedouin communities,” Mr. McGoldrick stressed.Khan al Ahmar-Abu al Helu is home to 181 people, 53 per cent of whom are children and 95 per cent of whom are Palestine refugees registered with the UN agency.It is one of 46 Bedouin communities in the central West Bank that the UN considers being at risk of forcible transfer, due to a coercive environment generated by Israeli practices and policies, plans to move the communities from their current locations and other reasons.Eighteen of these communities, including Khan al Ahmar, are located in or next to an area slated in part for a settlement plan – reportedly aimed at creating a continuous built-up area between Ma’ale Adumim and East Jerusalem.Nearly all of the Khan al Ahmar community’s structures risk demolition by the Israeli authorities, including the school, initially built with donor support that serves some 170 students from the community and four surrounding ones, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.“The entire community of Khan el Ahmar-Abu al Helu, the vast majority of whom are Palestine refugees and who are amongst the most vulnerable Bedouin communities in the West Bank, is facing the risk of demolitions of their structures and relocation,” said Mr. Anderson.For years, the residents have insisted on the right to return to their original lands, in what is now southern Israel, and, until this occurs, asks for international support to remain in their current location.“The humanitarian impact of home demolition is severe and long lasting. It is well documented in previous instances that the transfer of Bedouin communities into urban settings is socially and economically non-viable. The Khan al Ahmar-Abu al Helu community has repeatedly called for the provision of suitable planning solutions and services in its current location,” Mr. Anderson added.The visit came in advance of next week’s Israeli High Court of Justice case, which may determine the fate of the structures and Israeli relocation plan. read more

Wii Us voice chat setup verges on the ridiculous


first_imgAnyone who was hoping to use voice chat on their Wii U might be in for a little shock. Yes, it’s possible to chat with other gamers using your Wii U, but it’s only available on certain games, which seems to rule out the possibility of cross-game chat, and the set up is overly complicated to the point of being ridiculous.In-game voice chat will be supported in certain games such as Mass Effect 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Assassin’s Creed III. All these games support in-game voice chat on the Xbox 360 and PS3 too, plus they have online modes that would benefit from headset use. But here’s the catch — the Wii U’s GamePad controller does have a mic and speakers, but these are not compatible with in-game voice chat. Instead, gamers must buy a headset to plug into the headphone jack on the GamePad. There’s no official headset accessory for the Wii U (yet) so Nintendo recommends buying a licensed one from either Mad Catz or Turtle Beach.It gets worse, though. If you want to use your Wii U Pro Controller to play one of the games mentioned above, there’s no headphone jack connection on the Pro Controller. So even if you’re not using the GamePad, you are going to need it if you want to use voice chat. Worst of all, every single headset for the Wii U is wired, despite the console having Bluetooth, so gamers must have the GamePad on their lap or nearby in order to be able to wear a headset.All headsets designed to work with the Wii U have been made to work with the GamePad and not the console itself, which is a major oversight in my opinion. A wireless headset would also help matters.It’s unclear whether Nintendo will work to solve these problems, but many gamers will feel it must to compete with the Xbox 360 and PS3 and be taken seriously as a console. Hopefully we will see a solution to this ridiculous set up soon.via Kotakulast_img read more

Explore spring wildflowers on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge


first_imgDog Mountain is so bloomin’ popular with hardy hikers, the U.S. Forest Service has again instituted a spring-weekend permit system to prevent the place from getting loved to death. Permits are required Saturdays and Sundays, April 20 through June 16, and they cost $1 each. That’s down 50 cents from last year. Parking costs $5 per vehicle every day, not just weekends.Why so popular? Just over an hour from downtown Vancouver, Dog Mountain offers some of the Columbia River Gorge’s most scenic joys, featuring dizzying vistas and dazzling wildflower meadows of yellow, white, deep purple and flaming red. Visitors used to overwhelm the parking area on spring weekends, forcing some to park and walk on narrow state Highway 14, endangering themselves and motorists.That’s why the Forest Service launched its permit reservation system in 2018. It’s back again this year, providing greater sanity at the trailhead and greater access for hikers who’ve always liked Dog Mountain but never competing with crowds. “Last year’s program was highly successful,” said Lynn Burditt, area manager for Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. “Many people said they hiked Dog Mountain for the first time last year, because they didn’t have to wake up early to beat crowds into the parking lot.”Visit Recreation.gov to reserve up to four permits. With 250 permits available per day, planning ahead is crucial. Northwest Forest Passes and other interagency passes are accepted as payment, but a Dog Mountain pass is still mandatory. Washington State Park passes don’t get you into this federal site.A hiking permit does not guarantee parking at the trailhead, which costs an additional $5. Consider parking at the Skamania County Fairgrounds in Stevenson and taking the $2 round-trip shuttle to the trailhead; riders will get a free hiking permit, too. The shuttle runs every half-hour from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends, through the season.last_img read more

J Cole Announces Dreamville Music Festival In North Carolina

Cole.Fresh off of dropping his fifth album KOD, and likely earning his fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 along the way, then premiering a new music video starring GRAMMY-nominated comedian Kevin Hart, Cole has shown no signs of slowing down.His next big move? Launching a brand-new music festival in his home state of North Carolina. Details are currently sparse on Cole’s new Dreamville Music Festival, beyond a colorful website and a sign-up link to gain access to early-bird presale tickets. However, given that Dreamville Fest will be Cole’s label Dreamville Records’ first foray into the world of large-scale music festivals, it is highly likely that the event will see an exciting billing of rising talent co-signed by Cole himself, along with some special guests.”We’ve been trying to put this festival together for a few years now,” explained Dreamville Records manager/president Ibrahim ‘Ib’ Hamad to the Associated Press.  “It’s going to be a variety of different acts that we love or excite us … [and] something we want to build for years and years to come.”Dreamville Music Festival will take place in Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, N.C. on Sept. 15. Presale tickets for those who previous signed up via the festival’s official website went on sale on Apr. 27, and tickets for the general public are set to go on sale on Monday, Apr. 30.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

Galaxy S10s first TV commercial airs ahead of Samsung launch event


first_img Boost Mobile Samsung,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them? Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500.

Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. $520 at HP Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30.

Housewife gangraped in Ctg


first_imgA housewife has allegedly been gang-raped by four culprits at Goalpara area in the port city early Saturday, reports UNB.Police detained three of the accused – Md Imran, 30, son of Abdul Halim, Md Shahjahan, 32, son of late Zamir Hossain, and Kaisar Halim Munna, 18, son of Abdul Halim of the same area.They along with a fourth individual who continues to avoid arrest, intercepted the housewife as she got out of her residence at dawn on Saturday, following a domestic dispute with her husband, and violated her by turn, second-officer of Karnaphuli police station Md Mostafa said quoting locals.Eventually the victim’s husband rescued her from the spot and filed a case with the police station accusing the four.The victim has been admitted to One Stop Service of Chittagong Medical College Hospital for medical check-ups added Mostafa. “Search is on to find out the other accused Nurul Amin, 27 who went into hiding soon after the occurrence”.last_img read more

Researchers build single molecule microphone that can detect proton size displacements


first_img(Phys.org) —A trio of researchers in the Netherlands has built a “microphone” out of just a single molecule that is capable of detecting displacements as small as a single proton. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, Yuxi Tian, Pedro Navarro, and Michel Orrit describe how they embedded a single molecule in a crystal lattice along with a vibrating mechanism to create a new type of device capable of detecting vibrations at the nanoscale. (a) Sample mounting: an anthracene crystal doped with DBT was attached to the quartz crystal tuning fork. (b) The ZPL of a single DBT molecule is shifted upon deformation of its surrounding host crystal, as shown in (c) and (d). The real deformations are three-dimensional and much more complicated, as molecules can also rotate and be distorted. Credit: Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 135505 – Published 26 September 2014 More information: Single Molecule as a Local Acoustic Detector for Mechanical Oscillators, Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 135505 – Published 26 September 2014. journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/ … ysRevLett.113.135505ABSTRACTA single molecule can serve as a nanometer-sized detector of acoustic strain. Such a nanomicrophone has the great advantage that it can be placed very close to acoustic signal sources and high sensitivities can be achieved. We demonstrate this scheme by monitoring the fluorescence intensity of a single dibenzoterrylene molecule in an anthracene crystal attached to an oscillating tuning fork. The characterization of the vibration amplitude and of the detection sensitivity is a first step towards detection and control of nanomechanical oscillators through optical detection and feedback.

In either case, the effort was based on work conducted by a team in France recently who found that the electronic state of a molecule designated as a guest in a host matrix of another type of molecule, could be influenced by the matrix in such a way as to reveal vibrational properties of the matrix—finely enough to allow its use as a type of extremely miniature microphone.To build their micronanaphone, the researchers embedded individual dibenzoterrylene (DBT) molecules in a anthracene crystal lattice (with a low enough concentration to prevent the DBT molecules from touching). The crystal was then glued to a bit of quartz to act as a tuning fork. When the quartz was made to vibrate via an electric current it caused vibrations in the lattice which impacted the DBT molecule. In response the molecule changed how much it fluoresced (when excited by a laser), offering a way to measure how much vibration was occurring by degree of fluorescence. The team found they could focus on just one of the DBT molecules at a time because of imperfections in the crystal, which meant the final microphone was actually just one molecule in size.To test their device, the researchers stimulated the quartz in such a way as to fine tune the vibrations, measuring what they observed with just one molecule, photon by photon, over a full second and found that the device was able to accurately describe the amount of distortion occurring in the lattice. The researchers believe their micronanophone could be used for measuring either chemical or nano sized systems and because it’s so sensitive it could even be used to measure quantum effects in various structures such as extremely tiny cantilevers. One limitation is that the device only works at very low temperatures. © 2014 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.
