AprilJune smartphone shipments slip marginally to 33 million units

first_imgNew Delhi: Smartphone shipment in India saw a marginal fall with 33 million units being shipped in the second quarter ended June, according to research firm Canalys.A total of 33.1 million units were shipped in the country in the second quarter of 2018, the data from Canalys showed. “Smartphone shipment slipped 0.5 per cent in India in Q2 2019 as feature phone users refrained from upgrading to smartphones,” it said. Chinese firm Xiaomi led the tally with 10.3 million or 31 per cent market share to mark eight straight quarters as market leader, followed by South Korean tech giant Samsung that saw a shipment of 7.3 million units (22 per cent share) in the quarter. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalVivo had 18 per cent share (5.8 million units), followed by Oppo with 9 per cent (3 million) and Realme at 8 per cent share (2.7 million), it added. “The decline in the market is not a cause of worry. However, the lack of growth is against the expectation of several major vendors. Feature phone users are not taking to smartphones as quickly as the industry had expected and the bulk of growth in the Indian smartphone market is now coming from users who are upgrading their devices to a USD 200 (about Rs 15,000) or even a USD 300 (about Rs 20,000) smartphone,” Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi said.last_img read more

First Nation wants controversial sculpture by New York artist taken down

first_imgCALGARY – A First Nation near Calgary is calling on the city to remove a controversial piece of public art that has previously drawn criticism from those who don’t like the $500,000 price tag as well as those who just don’t like its looks.On Tuesday, Kevin Littlelight of the Tsuu T’ina First Nation lambasted the sculpture by New York artist Del Geist, which is called “Bowfort Towers” and is located near Canada Olympic Park.Littlelight called the sculpture — consisting of steel beams and Alberta rundle stones — offensive, saying it appears to emulate Indigenous burial scaffolding.Littlefield said the First Nation believes that attempting to reflect Indigenous symbolism without collaborating with local artists and elders “is not reflective of other recent steps by Calgary City Hall to respect Treaty 7 Nations.”Geist, who grew up in North Dakota, has previously said he did speak with Blackfoot elders and has said the use of four towers in the piece is a nod to the traditional significance of the number, but has denied accusations of cultural appropriation.The use of rock and steel has long been a staple for the artist, whose work has been displayed around the world for more than 40 years.“As an artist, using the natural sciences as a palette, he has developed major site-specific artworks throughout the U.S. and Europe,” reads the biography on his website.“His environmental artworks elicit unique qualities inherent to a place, fostering a viewer’s direct sensory experience. The stone and earth, metaphorically, contain the natural history of a region and its geology, capturing the spirit and flavour of an area.”City councillor Sean Chu, a vocal opponent of public funding for the arts, called the sculpture “the worst kind of wasteful spending of tax dollars” while many on social media have criticized the look of the piece. One person suggested it belonged in a recycling bin.Indigenous artist Adrian Stinson argued it’s up to municipalities to do a better job of vetting art projects.“The artist needs to show the group what they’re working on so that people can actually give input to say, ‘oh you know, there’s a red flag — that’s too close to a brutal platform, you might want to rethink that because you’re going to offend people,’ ” he said.Littlelight said this could be an opportunity for the city to learn from its failures, adding the First Nation would like to see elders and cultural experts help in the next step moving forward.“There’s great artists that are Albertans, Aboriginal artists that are Albertans, southern Albertans, cowboys, Indians, that should be our focus and we should be pushing that,” he said. “Nobody comes to Calgary to look at New York art.”He said he has some empathy for Geist.“I can’t really speak for him but it is a strike out,” he said. “What do you do? You have to rebuild and if I was the artist I would reach out to the art community of Treaty 7 and redo things. Diego Rivera was a great artist, he had to redo art all the time, it’s no different here.”(CFFR, CTV Calgary)last_img read more

Takata acquired by Key Safety Systems president resigns

first_imgTOKYO – Takata Corp., the Japanese air bag maker embroiled in a massive global recall linked to at least 22 deaths, said Thursday that its president has resigned now that its acquisition by U.S. mobility safety company Key Safety Systems has been completed.Takata’s president, Shigehisa Takada, said in a statement that as of Wednesday he was succeeded by Yoichiro Nomura, its chief financial officer.Takata went into rehabilitation proceedings last year, slammed by the massive costs and sales damage from defective Takata air bag inflators, which can explode with too much force and spew shrapnel at a vehicle’s drivers and passengers.At least 22 deaths and more than 180 injuries have been linked to the defect. Some 50 million Takata air bag inflators have been recalled in the United States and millions more globally. But many repairs still remain undone.Takada said he was stepping down because the transfer to Key Safety Systems, based in Auburn Hills, Michigan, was complete.“We again express sincere apologies to our customers, creditors, shareholders and many others for the great deal of inconvenience related to our air bags,” he said.Chinese-owned Key Safety Systems is a leading maker of seatbelts, which Takata also makes.It paid $1.6 billion (175 billion yen) in a deal under which Key gets all Takata assets aside from those making replacement air bag inflators. Takata will continue to run those operations until they close.Takada is the grandson of the company’s founder. The defect scandal set off calls for him to step down.The Takata name will disappear after the new company is rebranded as Joyson Safety Systems, according to Key Safety Systems, whose parent company is Joyson Electronics, headquartered in Ningbo in eastern China.“We are excited about the opportunities created through this combination,” Joyson Safety Systems Executive Chairman Jeff Wang said of bringing together Takata and Key Safety Systems.“And we are committed to providing safety solutions of the highest quality and reliability to drive the next generations of mobility.”The acquisition of Takata won antitrust clearance and bankruptcy court approvals in various countries, he said.The company said it plans to be a global leader in auto safety as well as other mobility systems, including steering-wheel technology, air bags and seatbelts.Various lawsuits are pending in U.S. courts against Takata, including several class action lawsuits that allege automakers knew about the dangers of the defective air bags ahead of the recalls.Takata uses the chemical ammonium nitrate to create small explosions to inflate air bags. But the chemical can deteriorate when exposed to high temperatures and airborne moisture. That causes it to explode with too much force, blowing apart a metal canister and hurling shrapnel.Earlier this year, Takata reached a $650 million deal in the U.S. to settle consumer protection claims from 44 states and Washington, D.C.____Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at work can be found at read more

Just How Much Does Tiger Affect TV Ratings For The Masters

Tiger Woods returned to the Masters on Thursday for the first time since 2015, shooting an opening-round 1-over 73 and slotting into 29th place headed into Friday. One year after his fourth back surgery — and six months removed from talk that he might never play competitive golf again — the 42-year-old is in the midst of a highly anticipated comeback.So far, Woods has delivered. He finished in the top five at back-to-back PGA Tour events in March, and television ratings, ticket prices and fan excitement have swelled with his return. And that got me wondering — just how much of an impact does Woods have on television ratings for the Masters? Considering that the likes of Jordan Spieth (first place through round one) and Rory McIlroy (tied for fourth) remain in contention as we near the weekend, are they a decent enough consolation prize for CBS if Woods falls off pace by Sunday?I looked back at the event’s national Nielsen ratings since 1958,1CBS first televised the Masters in 1956, covering the final four holes. There are no Nielsen ratings available for that telecast. In 1957, CBS aired one hour of Sunday Masters coverage, earning a rating of 3.0. Given the limitations, I excluded those two years from this analysis. showing the percentage of TV-owning households tuning in, with an eye toward some of golf’s biggest names — players who commonly appear on lists of the “greatest golfers of all time,”2Excluding golfers who played or peaked before CBS began televising the Masters. those who have won the Masters multiple times in the television era and a couple of recent winners. I specifically focused on the ratings for Masters Sunday, when the four-day tournament’s final round is usually played.3The Masters has concluded on Monday six times since 1958. In 1961, 1973 and 1983, the final round was completed on Monday because of rain earlier in the tournament. In 1962, 1966 and 1970, players who were tied for the lead after the final round competed in an 18-hole playoff on Monday. The Masters switched to a sudden-death playoff in 1976. I elected to show Sunday ratings to maintain consistency of day, as Monday afternoon telecasts can be subject to ratings drop-offs.Tiger Woods’s first two Masters victories, in 1997 (14.1 Sunday rating) and 2001 (13.3), produced the highest Sunday ratings in event history — about 50 percent above the long-term average. In ratings terms, that’s roughly on par with last year’s college football national championship and the deciding game of the NBA Finals. In 1997, Woods became the youngest champion at the Masters, set a new margin-of-victory record and shot the tournament’s lowest-ever 72-hole score.4270, equaled by Jordan Spieth in 2015. Ratings came back to earth when he won again in 2002 (9.2) and 2005 (9.8) but were still above average. The next three highest-rated rounds came in 1975 (11.9), 1972 (11.8) and 1966 (10.9),5The 1966 Monday playoff between Jack Nicklaus, Tommy Jacobs and Gay Brewer earned a Nielsen rating of 12.0. when Jack Nicklaus won three of his six green jackets. Player1st mastersWonTop 10Other* Ernie Els1994—9.49.8 Phil Mickelson19918.89.38.8 Vijay Singh199410.08.89.5 Bubba Watson20087.57.58.7 Sergio García19997.68.49.0 Jose Maria Olazabal19859.18.79.9 Tiger and Jack move the Masters ratings needleAverage Sunday Nielsen rating by player performance, 1958-2017 Lee Trevino1968—9.99.1 Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Nick Faldo and Phil Mickelson also boast one Masters victory apiece with a Sunday rating of 10.5 or better, though all of Palmer, Watson and Mickelson’s other wins were below average in terms of viewership.6Faldo’s two other wins drew above-average viewership.And that matters. From a ratings perspective, viewers don’t seem to care very much who’s battling it out atop the leaderboard on the final day of the Masters — unless it’s Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus. In the table below, you can see how television ratings increase with the success of those two. Statistics bear this out, too. High finishes by Woods and Nicklaus are the only variables I identified that have a statistically significant effect on Sunday ratings. There’s no bounce when most other big names do well — and in many cases, there’s a decline. Arnold Palmer19558.68.89.2 Jordan Spieth20148.87.87.6 And what about when lesser-known golfers take home the green jacket — like if Tony Finau or Bernd Wiesberger were to make a run on Sunday after solid starts? In those cases, CBS should hope they’re dueling with Tiger Woods. When Adam Scott, Charl Schwartzel and Trevor Immelman won in 2013, 2011 and 2008, respectively, Tiger finished in the top five. Those Sundays saw an average rating of 9.2. Meanwhile, Danny Willett and Mike Weir’s victories — with Woods out of the tournament in 2016 and out of the top 10 in 2003 — produced an average final-round rating of 8.0. In fact, since Tiger burst onto the scene in 1997, the five lowest-rated final rounds have coincided with his three Masters absences and two worst finishes.Even Mickelson — who has long been one of the most popular golfers on tour — didn’t move the Masters rating needle on his own. Before Lefty finally won his first title at Augusta in 2004, he was the best golfer without a major and had finished in the top 10 at a major 17 times. And yet, his narrative garnered the Masters a 7.3 rating, at the time the fourth lowest since 1958. This may have had to do with Tiger being well off the lead that Sunday, finishing tied for 22nd.7The final round of the 2004 Masters also started one hour early because of the possibility of inclement weather. Flash-forward to 2010: Woods — who was playing in the wake of scandal — was competing with Mickelson and others in a dramatic final round on Sunday. Phil would win his third green jacket, Woods finished tied for fourth, and the broadcast notched a 10.7 rating, sixth highest ever.8Mickelson’s second Masters victory in 2006 produced a below-average 8.4 rating despite Tiger finishing tied for third. Woods had won in 2005, and each time he’s pursued a repeat, ratings have declined from the year before.Masters ratings are ultimately influenced by more than just who’s in the mix toward the end of the final round. But when you’re basking in the Masters theme song and Bob Ross-like whispers of CBS’s Jim Nantz this Sunday, rest assured that if he’s calling Tiger’s name on 18, CBS will be enjoying the type of ratings that only Woods (or Nicklaus) can create.

Competing for the best mine rescue team in South Australia

first_imgTeams from South Australian mining companies will pit their mine rescue skills against each other and interstate teams in the inaugural South Australian Mines Emergency Response Competition this coming weekend: 1-2 May 2010. Three teams from BHP Billiton’s Olympic Dam mine, Terramin Australia’s Angas zinc mine and OZ Minerals’ Prominent Hill mine will battle it out with two teams from Victoria and one from New South Wales. The event, a first for South Australia, will be hosted by the South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy (SACOME).Jason Kuchel, SACOME Chief Executive: “The inaugural event is a reflection of our strong emphasis on ever improving mine safety as South Australia sees an increasing number of mines opening. The competitors will face challenges such as going into an underground mine in the dark, wearing full rescue gear including breathing apparatus and confronting a very realistic rescue scenario, so it will really test their skills and training.”The competition will be held at both the Angas zinc mine near Strathalbyn and the CFS State Training Centre, Brukunga, in the Adelaide Hills. Teams will spend a day at each facility and will face challenges such as high rope rescues, using breathing apparatus, fire fighting, first aid, theory, basic skills and road crash rescues.“This sort of training is vital for our mine rescue teams. It not only hones their skills, but it is set up as a learning exercise where they can watch other teams and share information. It is also designed to be fun and I’m sure friendly rivalry will be there from the start,” Kuchel saidThe competition will culminate in an awards dinner on Sunday night at Auchendarroch House, Mt Barker where the SA Minister for Mineral Resources Development, the Hon Paul Holloway, MLC, will present the inaugural SACOME Perpetual Trophy to the winning team.last_img read more

ILFS mayhem swept off 125 of mutual funds wealth AUM dropped to

first_imgA bird flies next to the logo of IL&FS (Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services Ltd.) installed on the facade of a building at its headquarters in Mumbai, India, September 25, 2018.REUTERS/Francis Mascarenhas/File photoInfrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) has created mayhem in the Indian financial system. Assets worth billions have been wiped off from the market; the numbers show that the mutual fund (MF) industry has lost 12.5 percent or Rs 3.16 trillion worth of investment in the single month. The total assets under management (AUM) have also fallen to Rs 22.04 trillion in September from Rs. 25.2 trillion at the end of August.Business Standard reported that one of the major reasons for this shock was the record outflows from liquid and fixed-income schemes, where large investors invested. The two portfolios witnessed an outflow of Rs 2.4 trillion in the month of September which is the most since at least January 2008. The withdrawal in debt market schemes alone accounts for almost 10 percent of August’s AUM tally.The market participants have argued that the steep fall pullout is happening due to IL&FS which has crippled the entire market. This huge amount of withdrawal has surprised the industry it had earlier only estimated Rs 1 trillion of outflow but it actually stood at Rs 2.4 trillion which is more than double.Swarup Mohanty, the chief executive officer of Mirae AMC said, “the pullout is higher than expected. There has been a flight to safety triggered by the IL&FS event. The sale of Dewan Housing Finance (DHFL) debt papers at high yields has aggravated the concerns.”One of the other industry experts Radhika Gupta, the chief executive officer of Edelweiss MF said that generally, September witnesses a higher outflow in liquid schemes. “However, the outflows seen in fixed-income schemes were not expected,” she further added.Industry experts are of the opinion that investors pulled out money due to fears of contagion risks from the IL&FS default. The unforeseen redemption pressure led to the shortage of liquidity at fund houses. Some of the fund managers had to borrow from the bank to honour redemption requests. The move has drawn attention from the Securities & Exchange Board of India (Sebi), which has called for an industry meeting to deliberate on the issue.last_img read more

Take a virtual reality flight over Hollywoods version of Warcraft

first_imgThe major takeaway from San Diego Comic-Con’s Warcraft movie news is that the movie is going to take forever to finish because it is a giant visual effects fantasy movie. Director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) has already finished a cut of the film, and now the 11-month post-production process of transforming all the human actors of The Horde into their orcish selves.They did debut a trailer that Duncan Jones has since promised will be revealed to the general public in November. The trailer revealed that, yes, the plot of this film is deeply rooted in the lore from the first Blizzard game, Warcraft: Orcs and Humans. This landmark real-time strategy game from 1994 takes place way before the globally popular MMORPG World of Warcraft. That game had heroes and a plot that you may or may not remember, and the live action movie that comes out next June is going to use that as the starting point.The trailer footage at Comic-Con showed the orcs in their dying home, specifically two of our three orc leads in the movie Orgrim (Rob Kazinsky) and Durotan (Toby Kebbell). They need more food and water or their species will die. Orgrim has a wife named Draka who is pregnant (baby Thrall!) and The Horde is hoping that Gul’Dan (a orc warlock played by Daniel Wu) can open a portal to a new world.In the trailer, Gul’Dan opens a doorway to a new world, that of Azeroth, a luscious medieval-looking land populated by humans. We get to see a bunch of the city of Stormwind, the central human city. The trailer escalates in tempo (and shows us baby Thrall in a river) before revealing an expansive battle shot where the human Alliance is running to attack and oncoming line of orcs, and the camera apparently pulls up to the real-time strategy overhead perspective before cutting to the title.This sounds meta and fantastic, unlike that part in the Doom movie where it goes into first-person shooter view.Clearly, Blizzard and Legendary are interested in a faithful adaptation of the Warcraft intellectual property, but that also means getting general film fans ready for an expansive fictional world originally conceptualized to make pixels fight each other. Although there have been success in fantasy epics with stuff like Lord of the Rings, that was a series of books and this is a video game movie that is largely performance capture. That means nothing we see or understand about the plot is going to have a basis in reality. That means a steep learning curve for the audience.As a way of introducing cinema-goers to the world of Warcraft (the world of the movie, not the game with that title), Legendary and Blizzard have teamed with Google (who loves VR, as we discussed earlier) to create a 360-degree video experience. You’re placed on the back of a Gryphon (which also appears in the trailer flying around Stormwind) as it does a flyby of the major human city from the movie.It works best in a Chrome browser.Click around and get familiar, Warcraft is not going to take it easy on those who didn’t do the homework.last_img read more

Summer fashion picks for office wear

first_imgFrom relaxed casuals to strictly corporate, dress codes for office vary widely in today’s time with changing work cultures. Ensure you have some right essentials. Here are few suggestions from experts: Frolic Formal: If you are someone who regularly meet executives, you might be asked to come dressed in business formals. A tailored suit in a solid, neutral colour like black, gray or navy can be paired with a white collared button-up shirt – a classic pairing for men. Women can pair-up their well-cut pantsuit or skirt suit in a conservative neutral colour such as black, navy or brown with a collared white button-up. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSmart semi-formal: Wearing casual to work is an art of adding personality to the workwear without looking unprofessional. Separates like skirt or trouser with a cardigan can be one choice for women. Pair it with solid coloured or muted patterns like checks or striped shirt. Men can pick a collared button-up in any colour to pair it with black dress pant or pressed khakis in the summer. Classic casual: For the ones allowed to wear casuals to work, remember not to go over the top with your dress-up. Casual dressing also leaves room for individuality and slight experiments. Men can pair up collared polos with casual slacks or dark denims. Choose muted patterned polos over novelty designs to be able to mix in while making a subtle statement. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveNicely fitted tops and blouses with cotton slacks or denims can be the option for women to wear to office. Dresses and skirts also add to the variety. Some tips on what footwear to wear and bags to carry to office: Footwear: Footwear adds the final touch to the outfit. For women, flats are more comfortable and functional than heels, while at work. Platform heels work the best for working women as they are stylish yet comfortable at the same time. Also, wedges look chic and glamorous without being over the top. For men, Oxford, derby shoes and loafers are formal, classy and high on the style quotient. A brown shoe catches more attention and adds another layer to your outfit. Dark brown shoes are easier to pull off than light brown ones. However, a pair of classic black shoes goes with primarily everything that you wear and has been never out of vogue. Bag Options: Work bags often pull double duty – they need to be attractive and useful with enough space to carry all the things you need during the day. For women, the classic tote bags are large enough to get you through a work day as they tend to swallow half your stuff. It can have a neoprene water bottle sleeve, a phone pocket, pen holder, padded laptop sleeve, notebook or tablet sleeve with magnetic closure, and interior side pocket. For men, the classic backpack has the convenience of the open pocket design, such as the carryall, generally with a smaller outer pocket. It is multi-functional and serves the purpose, whether in the office or heading out for a meeting. Also, these days the market is full of stylish options for men’s laptop bags crafted from leather, in different colours and designs.last_img read more

Singapore named top cruise destination

first_imgSingapore named top cruise destinationSingapore named top cruise destinationSingapore has been named top cruise destination by industry experts for the second time in three years at the 10th Seatrade Cruise Awards held on 22nd September in Tenerife. This accolade is another feather in the cap for Singapore, which was voted as the top Asian port of call in the inaugural Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Destination Awards as well.“We are flattered that Singapore has managed to retain the top spot in the minds of the cruise community as an attractive cruise hub,” said John Conceicao, Executive Director, International Relations & Market Planning & Oceania, Singapore Tourism Board (STB).“It’s no doubt that Singapore’s superb air connectivity, world-class berthing facilities at both the Singapore Cruise Centre and Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore terminals, and proximity to the region’s myriad of cruise offerings have all jointly contributed to this win.”Strengthening Singapore as a cruise hubThe award also caps off years of developmental work that STB, cruise lines and trade partners had collectively done to grow the cruise industry in Singapore. Some of the initiatives include forging more than 10 marketing partnerships with cruise lines and trade partners to drive cruise passenger numbers, training more than 800 travel agents from the UK and India with the help of CLIA Australasia, and widening Singapore’s reach to consumers through multiple media platforms. The Board also actively works with Singaporean trade partners to curate immersive and differentiated pre- or post-cruise experiences to enrich cruise visitors’ stay in Singapore.Developing Southeast Asia as the cruising region of choiceBeing the ASEAN[1] lead co-ordinator for cruise development in Southeast Asia, Singapore also spearheaded initiatives such as the creation of the first Cruise Southeast Asian brand to promote the region in a unified voice, and developed tools such as a regional cruise port and attractions map to help cruise lines develop itineraries.These efforts have proved fruitful, as Singapore experienced a 14 per cent year-on-year increase in cruise passenger throughput in 2015, and major cruise line Royal Caribbean International will have their longest-ever homeporting season[2] in Singapore starting October 2016.In Australia, the Board continues to work with various cruise travel partners not only to promote cruises that begin or end in Singapore, but also creating advertorials on Singapore in order to encourage longer stays pre- or post-cruise.Added Conceicao: “Singapore and Southeast Asia are well-placed to ride the wave of growth for cruising in Asia, and the Board will continue to push the boundaries in establishing Southeast Asia as the cruise region of choice.” Singapore Tourism Board for more information, visitSource = Singapore Tourism Boardlast_img read more
