first_imgApple is expected to unveil hardware based on its native ARM silicon. The company hasn’t provided any particular details, though the official invite sent by the company mentions a tagline, “One more thing.”This likely means that the event won’t reveal anything related to iPad, Apple Watch or iPhone as the company has already hosted their annual announcements in separate events.The company is also rumoured to have AirTags in the works for some time now. But those aren’t likely to be announced at today’s event. Instead, expect launches related to the MacBook and other Mac devices.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Apple is holding a virtual event called ‘One More Thing’ later today. The forthcoming Apple event, which is the third in a series of announcements — the most recent being the launch of the latest iPhone models — and perhaps the last of 2020, is expected to be the one where the Tim Cook-led team will unveil its MacBook models based on Apple’s own silicon. Apple announced its plans to transition to its in-house chips over Intel processors at WWDC 2020 earlier this year. However, the company is yet to showcase the new hardware that features its native chip.Apple event timing, livestream detailsToday’s Apple event will begin at 10am PST (11:30pm IST). Just like the previous two hardware-focussed events, as well as WWDC 2020, the event happening today will take place virtually from Apple Park. Apple will stream the event live through its dedicated Apple Events site, and on the Apple TV app as well as YouTube. You can also watch the Apple event live directly from the video embedded below.Apple event announcements (expected)- Advertisement – Apart from the initial models, the Nikkei Asia report mentioned that Apple is slated to bring other MacBook models based on its own silicon in the second quarter of next year.

The smaller models are said to be ahead in production and two of them are likely to be shown off at today’s event. The MacBook models are also said to have no visible changes — apart from the new silicon that could be based on the A14 Bionic chip powering the latest iPhone models.A separate report by Nikkei Asia suggested that Apple could produce as many as 25 lakh MacBook units based on its native processor by early 2021. The new MacBook models are said to be manufactured in China.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Abortion Rights a Losing Message in the Midterms

first_imgTownhall.com 5 November 2014Wendy Davis and Mark Udall ran on extreme abortion records – and they lost horribly.Davis, a Democratic Texas State Senator, gained overnight fame for trying to filibuster a life-saving bill that would ban abortions at five months, the point at which unborn babies can feel pain. Feminist and liberal groups lionized her as a hero for her late-term abortion agenda. They even decided to run her against Republican Greg Abbott in Texas’s gubernatorial race.How did that go? Not well.Her pro-life GOP opponent Greg Abbott won a majority of the female vote. Here’s why we shouldn’t be surprised:Then there’s Colorado, where Democrat Sen. Mark Udall was just as keen on promoting late-term abortion. His race also didn’t go his way.In addition to these two races, the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List sent out a joyful email to supporters celebrating four other wins in which they had invested: Arkansas, North Carolina, Iowa and Kansas.So, despite liberals desperately trying to keep their “war on women” strategy alive, which Charles Krauthammer went as far as to say had been ‘discredited,’ voters clearly ignored these misleading campaign ads. Last night was a resounding victory for the pro-life movement.http://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2014/11/05/abortion-rights-a-losing-message-in-the-midterms-n1914549?utm_source=thdailypm&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl_pmlast_img read more

We did not get a chance to put in a decent training session so we have to focus more on the experience of the players. Their commitment is going to play a great role. We know that Guyana lost to Suriname so they would want to get something out of the game. We just have to remain positive and get something out of the game,” Whitmore stated.His counterpart, Jamal Shabazz also wants his charges to be positive. “We are desperate to get a positive result because we want to remain in the competition and this game provides a slight opportunity for us. We now have got to forget about the reputation of Jamaica and think positive, think like hosts.

Cricket News Not thought too much about losing series against India: Tim Paine ahead of Sydney Test

first_imgNew Delhi: The Australian cricket team are on the verge of losing the series against India following their 137-run loss in the Melbourne Test. Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team are on the cusp of becoming not just the first Asian nation to win a Test series Down Under, but they have the chance to erase 72 years of pain to win a series in Australia for the first time. Tim Paine, the captain of the side, has presided over a side which are still reeling from the bans on Steve Smith and David Warner following the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town. Speaking in the pre-match press conference ahead of the Sydney Test, Paine said he wanted to focus on improving the team’s performance in the final Test.“I haven’t thought too much about losing the series, that’s for sure…some guys will use different things to motivate them. My motivation is making sure we’re improving, competitive at all times and put up a really good fight against India. My focus has been on us improving and us playing the best possible cricket we can. We want to win every Test we play. At times it’s not possible. We’re playing the best Test team in the world now,” Paine admitted on the eve of the Test.Read More | BCCI announces 13-man squad for SCG Test, call on Ashwin tomorrow Ever since the ball-tampering scandal, the Australian batting has struggled. In the series against India, no batsmen has scored a century while in the last three Tests against Pakistan and in South Africa in Johannesburg, only Usman Khawaja scored a century in the Dubai Test against Pakistan. Paine admitted that the current squad was lacking experience but it is ‘work in progress’.Read More | When Rishabh Pant turns into ‘baby sitter’ for Paine’s kids“We are constantly a work in progress…as I said before, it is about trying to keep a bit of perspective, a reality about where we are at. I think we are showing signs of getting better. I think in the last Test while our batters didn’t set the world on fire, most guys got a start and showed that they can succeed at this level. So, in this Test, there is going to be a real focus from our batting group,” Paine said.Long-term planningAustralia made changes in the Sydney Test following their loss in Melbourne. Khawaja will open the batting in place of Aaron Finch, who has struggled in the entire series. Marnus Labuschagne might make his debut while Peter Handscomb will replace Mitchell Marsh. The aim for Australia, Paine stated, was to build a steady batting line-up for the Ashes which will take place immediately after the World Cup.Read More | Gavaskar could miss trophy presentation ceremony after final Test“The silver lining is that in a few Tests’ time we have some world-class players available and we are going to have some younger guys with 8-10 Tests under their belt. So, it is going to be a great thing for Australian cricket. We want to try and settle guys who we think will play long-term in their positions looking forward into the next series and then into the Ashes. But at the same time we’ve got to find the best eleven to win this Test as well, so it’s a bit of a balancing act,” Paine said.Both Australia and India might name their playing XIs just before the toss in Sydney, with Virat Kohli’s side also making some changes.

Campbell wants points deducted for fans abuse

first_imgCampbell wants points deducted for fans’ abuse Arsenal Mon 2 Mar 2009 19.10 EST Share on WhatsApp Reuse this content David Hytner This article is more than 10 years old Premier League Sol Campbell relaxes during a visit to his old primary school, Portway Primary, in Stratford. Photograph: Tom Jenkins Chelsea Share via Email Sol Campbell Portsmouth First published on Mon 2 Mar 2009 19.10 EST @DaveHytner Topics Share via Email Share on Facebook Tottenham Hotspur Sol Campbell Share on Facebook Share on Messenger news • Authorities must act now on indecent and racist chanting• Portsmouth have missed chance to build on 2008 success Sol Campbell has called on football’s authorities to deduct points from clubs whose supporters are found guilty of ­indecent and racist chanting. The Portsmouth captain, speaking in an interview with the Guardian, has long been the target of abuse from Tottenham Hotspur fans, who have never forgiven him for leaving them for Arsenal in 2001, and was subjected to vile chants during Portsmouth’s 2–0 Premier League win over Tottenham at Fratton Park last September.”I think that they [the game’s authorities] are going to have to do more,” said Campbell. “My situation is a small part. But also, you have the racial abuse in the rest of Europe. The only way you can stop it from happening is by taking points from clubs. Then it would definitely stop. If it’s just way over the top and you start taking points … [with] those three points, you can lose the championship or you can be going down. That’s the only way you can stop fans’ abuse on that type of level.”There is all sorts up and down the league, there is always someone saying something or part of the crowd saying something to certain players, but there is a level and once that level is crossed, I think people have to step in and sort it out.”Football seems to think it can keep on going without getting checked. In most other sports on this level, it doesn’t ­happen. You’re not going to get that in ­tennis, rugby, cricket or athletics. It’s just not accepted.”Hampshire police launched an investigation into the abuse suffered by ­Campbell that they hoped would set a precedent. After releasing photographs on the ­internet of 16 suspects, they brought charges of “indecent chanting at a designated football match” against 11 people. Their ages ranged from 13 from 54.Four of the 11 Tottenham fans to be charged pleaded guilty and they were fined and given three-year football ­banning orders. The magistrate likened them to a “pack of animals”. The remaining seven pleaded not guilty and they face trial in May.”The arrests woke up a lot of people,” said Campbell, “because some people just thought ‘I never thought it was wrong’ – that’s unbelievable – [or] ‘That wasn’t me’, as if football turns people into some different kind of person. ‘I’ve paid my money and I can say and do whatever I want at any time I want within that 90 minutes’.”There is a level. You say that on the streets and you’d be arrested or put away. You wouldn’t say that to your son or daughter and if that was said to your son or daughter, would you be the same? That’s what people have to remember.”Campbell also voiced his concern that Portsmouth had missed the opportunity to establish themselves as regulars on the European stage and were now drifting towards an uncertain future. Portsmouth, who play Chelsea at Fratton Park tonight, are two points above the relegation zone and they remain under the caretaker charge of Paul Hart, after the sacking of Tony Adams three weeks ago. Sven-Goran Eriksson, the Mexico manager, is their No1 choice to take over. “There is a guy that they are out there to get but there are a few sticking points,” said Campbell. “I think that’s all a waiting game.”Campbell lamented Portsmouth’s ­failure to build on last season’s eighth-place finish and FA Cup triumph. The club, which is up for sale, has sold key players and remains deeply in debt. “It’s gone now,” he said. “In the sense that to get back to the level of European football on a regular basis, it’s going to take a big effort over the seasons.” Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Shares00 Share on Pinterest This article is more than 10 years old Share on Twitterlast_img read more
