Considering Redmi’s past records we believe the entry-level phone will hit the Indian stores very soon.advertisement Sneha Saha New DelhiMay 24, 2019UPDATED: May 24, 2019 15:45 IST HIGHLIGHTSRedmi 7A announced in China.Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi is yet to reveal the price of the Redmi 7A.The Redmi 7A succeeds the Redmi 6A that was launched last year.Ahead of the Redmi K20 launch on May 28, Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi has announced an entry-level phone called the Redmi 7A. As the name suggests the Redmi 7A succeeds the Redmi 6A that was launched last year. As of now, the Redmi 7A has been announced in China, but considering the company’s past records we believe the entry-level phone will hit the Indian stores very soon. Notably, the complete specs of the Redmi 7A have been revealed by the company but the price still remains a mystery. The Redmi 7A price is expected to be official on May 28 at the launch event of the Redmi K20.The product shots and the official specs sheet reveal that the Redmi 7A is a big upgrade over the Redmi 6A. As far as the specs are concerned the Redmi 7A comes with a 5.45-inch IPS LCD HD display and offers an aspect ratio of 18:9. Sadly, unlike other Redmi 7 series phones including the Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi 7, the all-new Redmi 7A includes very thick bezels on all sides. There’s no notch on the phone. The interesting bit is the phone comes with P2i nano-coating that makes the phone water splash proof.On the hardware front, the Redmi 7A is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor. It is a good news that Redmi hasn’t used MediaTek chipset to power the Redmi 7A, unlike the Redmi 6A. To recall, the Redmi 6A comes with a MediaTek Helio A22 SoC. The Redmi 7A is backed by a 4000mAh battery. Well, this Redmi phone sadly has no Type C support. So users will need to use Micro USB port to charge the phone. The Redmi 7A also includes triple card slot that can be used to put two SIM cards and one microSD card. The storage space can be expanded up to 256GB storage.advertisementAs far as the camera setup is concerned, the Redmi 7A sports a 13MP AI based camera on the back panel and 5MP selfie shooter on the front. The rear camera setup of the Redmi 7A includes several camera features like AI beautification. The front camera too comes with several AI based camera features like AI Beauty camera, AI Background Blur and supports AI Face Unlock. Glad to see face unlock support on the Redmi 7A. Notably, there’s no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as was also the case with the Redmi 6A.As noted at the beginning of the article, Xiaomi Redmi is yet to reveal the price of the Redmi 7A. The official price of the Redmi 7A will be revealed on May 28 at the launch event of the Redmi K20.ALSO READ | WhatsApp rolls out sticker notification on Android smartphonesALSO READ | Google Pixel 4 could feature a button-less designALSO READ | Xiaomi Redmi K20 price may start at around Rs 20,000, predicts analystGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

first_imgThe Department of Justice is supporting the Select Nova Scotia campaign by directing correctional institutions to support local product purchases whenever possible. “Through the Select Nova Scotia campaign, the Department of Justice has a great opportunity to support Nova Scotian farmers and retailers,” said Justice Minister Murray Scott. Correctional institutions across the province have been working to ensure local products are used as much as possible. They are asked to purchase Nova Scotia food products — including meat, fish, fowl, groceries, dairy products and baked goods — and to make those purchases from Nova Scotia retail outlets. Officials from the Department of Agriculture have also met with corrections officials and visited correctional facilities to provide information on the Select Nova Scotia campaign. “Nova Scotia producers can be counted on for high quality. Whenever we can, we plan to buy local,” said Mr. Scott. The province’s buy-local campaign, Select Nova Scotia, was announced on July 5.last_img read more

first_imgGovernment is increasing public safety by making paramedics a self-regulating profession. New legislation introduced today, Nov. 18, will establish a College of Paramedics that will set standards of practice and resolve complaints. “We want paramedics to have a strong voice in the opportunities available to the profession,” said Health and Wellness Minister Leo Glavine. “Self-regulation reflects the key role they play in a unified provincial health-care system and their high level of professionalism.” There are about 1,400 registered paramedics in Nova Scotia. Most of them work for Emergency Health Services or the Nova Scotia Health Authority. “Through this legislation, paramedics will be better able to provide the levels of care that Nova Scotians want and deserve,” said Bruce Sangster, a member of the paramedic advisory committee that helped to develop the bill. “At the same time, a paramedics’ college will give us a strong voice in establishing professional standards of care and accountability, and keeping up with the changing scope of practice.” The government will provide a $350,000 subsidy over two fiscal years to help establish the College of Paramedics. After that, the college would be financed solely through dues it collects from paramedics. “Nova Scotia has a world-class emergency health system and the highly trained paramedics who work in every community across Nova Scotia are vital members of the health-care team,” said Mr. Glavine. Paramedics will join 21 health professions that are already self-regulated in Nova Scotia, including physicians, registered nurses and licensed practical nurses.last_img read more

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s main stock market index regained some ground Wednesday as rising oil prices helped boost the energy sector and the Royal Bank of Canada posted record third-quarter earnings.Energy was definitely the leader as the sector gained 1.7 per cent, followed closely by cannabis-heavy health-care stocks, said Michael Currie, vice-president and investment adviser at TD Wealth.“Energy is leading because we had a nice day for oil,” he said in an interview.Crude hit a two-week high after rising 3.1 per cent in part due to talk of U.S. sanctions on Iran and a big drop in U.S. crude stockpiles. They fell by 5.8 million, almost four times more than had been anticipated.A dip in the value of the U.S. dollar usually helps the Canadian dollar.“Normally you would see the Canadian dollar perk up a little more than it did on that kind of news on oil,” Currie said.The Canadian dollar averaged 76.83 cents US, up 0.12 of a U.S. cent.The S&P/TSX composite index was up 50.37 points at 16,347.34 after hitting an intraday high of 16,397.08 with 200.2 million shares traded.The health-care sector gained 1.55 per cent as Canopy Growth Corp. continued its hot streak, gaining $1.84 or 3.66 per cent at $52.10. Bausch Health Companies Inc. (formerly Valeant Pharmaceuticals) gained 3.56 per cent to $30.24.Financials was up, led by the Canadian Western Bank and the Royal Bank of Canada. The country’s largest bank by market capitalization delivered a record $3.1 billion in net income for its fiscal third quarter, up 11 per cent from a year ago and hiked its quarterly dividend.“We’re seeing good numbers and of course that was the first one to report of the big banks and it is the biggest and so good news to start and that’s got a big push in Toronto,” Currie added.Information technology, materials and real estate sectors all gained while utilities, consumer staples, industrials, consumer discretionary and telecom services closed down.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 88.69 points at 25,733.60. The S&P 500 index was down 1.14 points at 2,861.82, while the Nasdaq composite was up 29.92 points at 7,889.10.Most of the decrease came in response to Federal Reserve minutes which pointed to a faster pace of interest rate hikes and the fact that the S&P 500 is coming off an all-time high hit during Tuesday trading.Growing impeachment talk concerning U.S. President Donald Trump following a guilty plea by his former lawyer Michael Cohen and the fraud conviction of his one-time campaign chairman Paul Manafort isn’t having an impact on markets, said Currie.“On the Main Street side of things it’s a big topic [but] on the Wall Street side of things people are kind of dismissing it as a bit of a non-event,” he said.The October crude contract was up US$2.02 at US$67.86 per barrel and the October natural gas contract was down two cents at US$2.94 per mmBTU.The December gold contract was up US$3.30 at US$1,203.30 an ounce and the September copper contract was down 2.2 cents at US$2.67 a pound.last_img read more

Taking up his duties with the Mission yesterday in Pristina, Francesco Bastagli succeeds Tom Koenigs, who joined UNMIK shortly after it was established in 1999. Mr. Koenigs left the Mission to become the Secretary-General’s Special Representative in Guatemala.Mr. Bastagli has expertise in development issues, as well as in drug control and crime prevention. Over the last three years, he has served as the UN Resident Coordinator and Resident Representative of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) in Iran.From 1986 to 1991, he was Chief of the Executive Office of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), and from 1991 to 1999, he worked for the UN Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention in Vienna, where he became Director of the International Drug Control Programme.In another development, UNMIK has expressed its regret over a statement by the Government of Kosovo that alleged a political motivation to recent arrests carried out by the Mission. “There is no political aspect or motivation to any of the arrests,” the Mission said in a statement released late on Monday. “The arrests have been conducted against individuals suspected of serious crimes, not against any group or organization to which they belong or may have belonged in the past.”The Mission noted that under Security Council resolution 1244, UNMIK has been mandated with establishing the rule of law. “Not only the Security Council and the international community, but also the people of Kosovo have demanded that we do so,” the statement said.The Mission pointed out that the recent arrests were the results of long and complex investigations, some begun as early as 1999, by UNMIK police. “The judicial process is being followed as set out in the applicable law as established by UNMIK regulation in late 1999,” the statement said. “All those suspects arrested will receive all rights accorded them under law and their cases will be processed as quickly as possible, with fair and objective justice.” read more

first_imgInternational Mining is focusing on automation and remote control in the January issue. New in that area is a mine robot designed to work in areas with methane-explosion hazards. In Poland EMAG has completed work on GMRI. A prototype of the device has already been built.The project has been carried out by the EMAG Institute in cooperation with the Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements in Warsaw. The result of the project is a prototype of GMRI Mine-Mobile-Inspection Robot that can be used to measure the concentration of methane, oxygen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and the values of temperature and humidity. Additionally, it can be used to transmit TV pictures showing the conditions of the underground environment.When put in the appropriate area, the robot starts to transmit pictures and information on gas concentration, temperature and humidity to the operator’s station. Using this information, the mine condition as well as decisions on further actions can be assessed faster and more accurately. As a result, the rescue team will be less exposed to dangers with entering the hazardous-area. Mines will be able to re-start the excavation process faster – estimates Leszek Kasprzyczak, Phd. Eng. from the EMAG Institute, the project co-ordinator.The project funded by the National Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR) was co-ordinated by the Institute of Innovative Technologies EMAG. The EMAG Institute was also responsible for the development of all electronic, measuring, visual, programmable and control sub-assemblies as well as control-measurement software. The Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements developed mainly the mechanical part of the robot -body and drives. The prototype of the GMRI is a non-commercial version mainly aimed at getting experience and knowledge essential to developing an improved commercial version.last_img read more

first_imgCRCMining has developed world-leading capability to optimise equipment selection, bucket design and sizing, based on characterising dig conditions and machine performance, with sophisticated expertise in investigating and improving the performance of materials handling systems. Truck and shovel haulage systems typically operate well below their potential capacity, significantly impairing the productivity of load and haul mining systems.  This is usually a result of improperly matched or inappropriately sized equipment, or poorly designed GET (ground engaging tools).  Tailoring digging equipment for mine-specific dig conditions significantly increases the productivity of these machines, offering a direct and substantial improvement to mine profitability.CRCMining’s Hard Rock and Surface Mining Program Leader, Dihon Tadic, explains the key outcomes for the mining industry, “CRCMining’s on-site digging characterisation and scaled laboratory dig testing allows us to design buckets that can significantly boost shovel and excavator performance, reduce maintenance costs, ensure optimal equipment sizing and improve operational control.”“CRCMining has developed sophisticated capability for investigating and improving the performance of materials handling systems, by accurately replicating the digging response of the exact types of materials that the equipment is working with on-site.”“Understanding and controlling excavation performance subsequently allows improvements to overall material movement efficiency, and significantly increases loading and haulage system productivity,” said Tadic.Evaluating and sizing digging machines, and selecting suitable bucket and dipper designs for the particular blasted materials, is difficult due to complex interactions between the equipment and materials, dig condition variability and operator effects.Equipment selection and sizing is especially difficult for new mining operations or for existing mines where dig conditions change considerably across different operating zones.CRCMining’s specialised research experts use cutting-edge technologies to determine correct sizing and design of buckets to match haulage equipment and reduce truck payload variance. The technology also enables tailored blast design (control of fragmentation, size distribution, bulk density variation, etc.) to improve excavation performance.“With our dedicated scaled digging facilities we can develop and test bucket designs in mine-specific dig conditions, assess GET and wear package effects, and trial automated digging strategies, allowing accurate and efficient performance assessment and equipment optimisation,” said Tadic.“This unique capability also allows investigation of the effect of blasted material properties on digging performance, providing opportunity to examine tailored blast designs to improve loading efficiency and consistency.”CRCMining’s engineers visit mine sites around the world, to evaluate and analyse existing digging and loading performance, and fragmented material properties, enabling sophisticated analysis, and improvements in a range of different mining operations.Tadic explains the significant benefits provided to industry, “The knowledge and technology we have provided to mining companies has often proved critical for mine planning and investment, and delivered significant gains in productivity. Our research and analysis has influenced fundamental decision-making for some of the largest mining projects in the world, assisting to avoid costly mistakes, and resulting in billions of dollars in gains and cost savings.”last_img read more

first_imgDanvest and Pon Power are launching a “second-to-none, low-load Compact series for solar-diesel hybrid power plants.” This Compact series offers power producers a complete, cost-effective solution that automatically integrates photovoltaic systems with diesel power. The Compact series includes Danvest’s unique, low-load and reverse-power operation and fast-response capabilities. Direct annual fuel savings are typically between 30 and 40%.The system is able to run on 100% solar power during the day, when solar radiation is highest, and the fast-acting, low-load generator sets are able to respond to any drop in solar output or increase in power demand. In other words, it acts as an active spinning reserve with nearly zero fuel consumption so is highly applicable in remote mines in arid regions.This new concept is based on robust, standard Caterpillar® generator sets, comes in sound-attenuated enclosures, and is equipped with both Danvest’s low-load technology and its proven control- and power-panel system with dump-load controlling. Storage systems and additional solar capacity can always be added to further increase overall fuel-saving performance.Four (4) standard Compact hybrid power modules are available as plug-and-play building blocks: Model HSD-220 (220 kWe rating), Model HSD-400 (400 kWe rating), Model HSD-500 (508 kWe rating) and Model HSD-650 (648 kWe rating).last_img read more

first_imgStay on target Buy This Comic: DEATH ORB #1Buy This Comic: MAN-EATERS #1 “When Jory transfers to an all-boys private high school, he’s taken in by the lowly stage crew known as the Backstagers. Hunter, Aziz, Sasha, and Beckett become his new best friends and introduce him to an entire magical world that lives beyond the curtain that the rest of the school doesn’t know about, filled with strange creatures, changing hallways, and a decades-old legend of a backstage crew that went missing and was never found.”I am a big fangirl for everything that is Boom! Studios. I am also a fangirl for backstage theater antics. So, bringing both of those together, I was all over The Backstagers in a heartbeat.THE BACKSTAGERS VOL. 1(W): James Tynion IV (A): Rian Sygn (C): Walter Baiamonte (L): Jim Campbell (CA): Veronica FishIf you’re a fan of theater, backstage magic, and lovable characters, I suggest you pick up The Backstagers. The Backstagers was a limited eight part series for Boom! Studios from creators James Tynion IV and Rian Sygn. If you didn’t get into The Backstagers during its debut, here’s your chance to follow the adventures of these backstage workers of theater, aka, the hardest workers in show business. The first volume is released today, collecting the first four issues to get you started.The Backstagers follow Jory, a new student at an all boys school, who wants to join the Drama Club but taken back by the snobby attitudes of the lead actor twins, Kevin and Blake McQueen. When he meets the Backstagers, he immediately becomes intrigued by the kids the club calls “weirdos.” It’s the adventure, intrigue, and friendship that Jory needs to survive this new school.via Boom! BoxJames Tynion IV has to be one of my favorite writers in comics for awhile now, but his writing at Boom! is what completely stole my heart. He has such a great imagination for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. He weaves magic in the life of a tech crew that everyone deems as misfits and makes it an experience you wish you had in high school. Tynion writes these cast of characters with vibrancy and relatability, and you’ll want to be friends with them all. Jory may be the central character, but you invest yourself in learning about every one of the Backstagers. They all share equal importance to the story, and no one is left behind. Rian Sygn, the artist, and co-creator is an absolute dream for this comic. He brings Tynion’s written words into a visual dream. Rian’s style and imagination work perfectly with the narrative.  His cartoon and illustration background allows him to surround you with an incredible amount of detail that carries your eyes from panel to panel. Each one is so inviting and, I can only be described as absolutely adorable.Walter Baiamonte and Jim Campbell bring this story together. Walter has an eye for beautiful pastel and technicolor that fit so well within the comic, in particular between the differences from the stage, backstage and what’s hidden behind the backstage door. Campbell’s, always dynamite, lettering is just what this comic needed to make reading Backstagers even more fun.via Boom! BoxThe Backstagers has to be one of my favorite series from Boom! Studios. It’s small, but a lovely and whimsical queer story that everyone should read. Boom! has given us such great diverse stories that you don’t see anywhere else. They let their creators make something special, and that’s what they’ve allowed James and Rian to do with Backstagers. I’m so excited to re-read the series and collect them in the trade backs. I will give James and Rian all my money.

first_imgEnlarge ImageTesla’s updated app shows where in the repair process your vehicle is, and when it might be done. Tesla As part of Tesla’s plan to improve its service experience, the company announced on Friday that it had updated its app to give service updates, estimated repair times and more to its customers.Specifically, the app will recognize when a customer’s vehicle is in for service and automatically display its estimated completion time, as well as where in the repair process the car is currently. That means you’ll see when your car is sitting idle waiting for parts and when the technician is working on it.For those lucky few who lack the compulsion to check their phone continuously, the Tesla app will also alert you when your car is ready for pickup. This alert could prove especially useful if Tesla can fulfill its plan to have most vehicle services done at a customer’s location, rather than in a Tesla facility.The big T still has a long way to go before its repair network is as robust as some other, more established luxury brands, but if it’s able to deliver on its promises of quicker turnarounds, more service centers and mobile service, it could be on the right path. Earlier this week the company at last put its $35,000 Model 3 on sale. 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio.

Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker.

While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance.

Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel.
