first_imgChances are, you already use the cloud in some area of your life. Whether it’s storing photos from your phone or listening to streaming music, cloud has quickly become essential to modern life. Yet many small businesses are still using antiquated processes to store and share their files. As digital data grows, those systems are no longer adequate.Benefits of cloud migration can be significant, including lower office expenses and increased efficiency, but there’s a lot of confusion around getting started. Check out the info below to build a strong foundation for your small business cloud.What Is Cloud Storage?The cloud is a network of servers that handles data remotely. A cloud network can store data — like all those images we upload to Facebook — or serve up applications for streaming services like Spotify.The most immediate benefit of using the cloud is easy access. Salesforce sums it up nicely: “Where in the past, people would run applications or programs from software downloaded on a physical computer or server in their building, cloud computing allows people to access the same kinds of applications through the internet.”How Can the Cloud Help Small Business?Storing data in the cloud gives small business employees the ability to work from anywhere. You might be giving a PowerPoint presentation to a potential client downtown while an analyst compiles a weekly report from home and someone in the office enters data. Whatever the scenario, you’re all accessing the same data in real time. The cloud boosts efficiency by keeping all your files in the same place and accessible from anywhere.Not only is that data readily available, but working in the cloud also reduces the need for expensive IT hardware and on-site software. Employees just need a computer to access a variety of services such as video conferencing, mobile and internet convergence, data sharing, integrated messaging, and software that was previously only available with the purchase of a license. Cloud-based software is also constantly updated, so you’re always using the latest version.Another significant benefit of moving small business services to the cloud is the ability to scale. When you need more processing power or data storage, it’s easy to expand without changing hardware — and without the unproductive downtime that usually comes with an IT upgrade.Cloud Options and Where to StartCloud computing has reached a level of maturity that makes it accessible to small business, but the host of options can be overwhelming. Start by researching some of the best cloud services for small businesses. Most fall into categories, so you can choose based on your needs:Communications and commerce-based toolsSecurity and network monitoringFinancial toolsIt’s important to vet cloud service providers before adopting one, just as you would any other service provider. Consider a few key elements when looking for an online storage provider, including proven infrastructure and an active, established user base.When assessing a provider, take a look at the company’s security measures as well. Many small business owners report being concerned about the security of remotely accessed cloud-based systems. However, broad scrutiny, higher standards, and ongoing audits result in a more secure cloud overall. Small businesses can do their part to maintain data security by ensuring tight permissions, and by identifying risks in the office.You can find more tips on cloud adoption — as well as resources specific to small business — by visiting our Small Business Hub.

first_imgTwo days after Aditya Tare’s six over fine leg off Rajasthan Royals’ James Faulkner sealed a victory and playoff qualification for the Mumbai Indians, cricket fans in the city are still gobsmacked.So unbelievable was the chase of 190 in 14.3 overs that it continues to be a big talking point even while a new government takes charge at the Centre, and ministers assume office.For the Mumbai team, it was a shot in the arm. Written off after finishing the UAE leg of the tournament winless, the defending champions clawed their way back into the top four, and the architect of that famous win, New Zealander Corey Anderson, said on Tuesday that the victory has changed the mindset of the team.”It makes us more fearless in a playoff scenario. A lot of people had written us off so to pull it off was a great feeling. It provided a sense of relief. Now, it’s a level playing field again. We need to continue being fearless, and build on the momentum,” Anderson said ahead of the team’s Eliminator match against the third- placed Chennai Super Kings.It’s certain that Mumbai will find it hard to replicate the sheer audacity and fearlessness of that performance, but Anderson was willing to be optimistic. “A lot of boys in the dressing room, myself included, thought that was a lot of runs to get. But we stayed optimistic and found a way to win, like we have in the past few weeks. We need to remain fearless even now,” he said.advertisementMumbai must thank Yusuf Pathan’s blitz on Saturday for elevating Kolkata Knight Riders into the top two, because otherwise, their inconsistent batting would’ve been up against the top bowling side in the tournament.As things stand, Chennai’s bowling -the medium pacers in particular – have shown themselves to be the team’s Achilles heel.Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming said their final league stage win against Royal Challengers Bangalore was important from a momentum point of view. “It was good and important against the run of Mumbai confident after heroics against Rajasthan. We had not played that well in those games. The worst defeat was against KKR at the Eden Gardens. The one [win] at Bangalore was just what we had asked for. We know pretty well what the players are going to deliver for us and the opportunity they are going to get,” he told reporters.One aspect that is expected to play a key role in the result is the venue.The Cricket Club of India’s Brabourne Stadium, situated at a stone’s throw from the regular Mumbai venue, the Wankhede Stadium, is hosting its first IPL game in three years, and while the conditions may not be too different to those at the Wankhede, both teams will still need to adapt.Of course, Mumbai have the advantage of playing at home, and crowd support for them will be vociferous. In fact, a CCI official told MAIL TODAY on Tuesday that online ticket sales had seen a mega spike soon after Mumbai’s win on Sunday and for Chennai.last_img read more

first_imgRangana Herath took six wickets first-innings wickets to put West Indies in a spin as Sri Lanka enforced the follow-on on the third day of the opening Test at Galle on Friday.The wily left-arm spinner picked up four wickets on the third day to complete his 23rd five-wicket haul in Tests.Herath inflicted more misery on the hapless touring side by dismissing opener Kraigg Brathwaite lbw for 34 in West Indies’ second innings and they finished the day on 67 for two, still needing 166 runs to avoid an innings defeat.Shai Hope (six) was the other opener out when he was bowled by Milinda Siriwardana to become the debutant all-rounder’s first Test victim.Darren Bravo (20) and nightwatchman Devendra Bishoo (six) were at the crease at stumps.Also read: Jayawardene’s appointment as England’s batting consultant brilliant, says Ian Bell Bravo (50) had offered resistance in the first session too, making his 12th half-century in Tests before falling to Herath, Dinesh Chandimal completing a brilliant acrobatic catch at mid-wicket to dismiss the left-hander.Herath struck in his second over of the day with an innocuous delivery which Marlon Samuels (11) made a mess of. The batsman failed to connect on a pull shot and the ball, going way down the leg side, hit his thigh and went on to disturb the stumps.Jermaine Blackwood (11) did not last long either, edging Dhammika Prasad to Siriwardana at slip where the fielder juggled a catch but held on.Jason Holder (19), leading the side for the first time in Tests, gave Prasad his second wicket when he edged behind to wicketkeeper Kusal Perera after hitting the paceman for two consecutive boundaries.advertisementWicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin fell in similar fashion to fast bowler Nuwan Pradeep before Kemar Roach, who was dropped on five by Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews at slip off Herath, and Jerome Taylor (31) launched a counter-attack.Taylor hit four boundaries and a six in his 31-ball knock and his 46-run stand for the eighth wicket with Roach gave West Indies hope of saving the follow-on.Roach (22) also added 34 with Bishoo for the ninth wicket but Herath ensured they fell short by dismissing him and Shannon Gabriel off successive deliveries shortly after tea.last_img read more

first_imgHello and welcome to the LIVE coverage from the fourth ODI between India and New Zealand in Ranchi.Highlights: That’s it, all over for India!!New Zealand (260/7) crush India (241-all out) by 19 runs to level the five-match series 2-2. Ajinkya Rahane 57, Virat Kohli 45, Axar Patel 38, Tim Southee 3/40, James Neesham 2/38.Another thriller! The series is alive and kicking! New Zealand have again defended a slightly below par score to perfection. The ODI series has gone down the wire and levelled at 2-2! The visitors kept taking wickets at the right time to never India allow to run away with the game and they have managed to stay alive in the series with a brilliant win here at Ranchi. 21.20 IST: Boult to Yadav, OUT! NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 19 RUNS AND LEVEL THE SERIES 2-2! Boult gets the final wicket. A length ball outside off, Umesh looks to give this the big swing. But because the pitch is a bit slow, the ball does not come on to the bat that easily. He miscues it to short extra cover where Ross Taylor takes a simple catch. So we will have a series finale in Vizag. 21.17 IST: Dhawal and Umesh have added 31 runs for the final wicket which is the highest 10th-wicket stand for India vs New Zealand. Ind 238/9 in 48 overs, need 23 runs from 12 balls 21.11 IST: It’s not over till its over! Dhawal Kulkarni is not giving up without a fight.

Batting first Australia posted 215/7 with Mark Taylor getting a hundred. India in reply kept losing wickets at regular intervals before Anil Kumble and Javagal Srinath got together and won the match for India with just 2 wickets to spare. The duo added an unbeaten 52 runs for the ninth wicket and clinched victory for the hosts. You never know, Mishra and Axar can do the same for the Men in Blue today as well! 20.19 IST: OUT!! Santner gets the wicket of Hardik Pandya, who holes out at deep extra-cover. That is another spectacular catch by Tom Latham! Flighted on middle and off, Pandya comes down the track and looks to go inside out. The shot selection is good, so is the timing but perhaps the power is a bit less. He hits this towards extra cover but Tom Latham covers plenty of ground from long off to his left and takes a very good catch, just inside the ropes. Pandya is down on his knees. He certainly did not expect Latham to take that catch.

James Neesham uproots MS Dhoni’s leg-stump with a beauty. Fuller and angling into the stumps, Dhoni plays a loose drive to it and is beaten by the low bounce and the inward movement. The ball crashes into the stumps and that silences the crowd. Neesham is pumped up along with Kane and why not, they have taken the big wicket here and India under serious pressure.

Floated outside off, Neesham looks to play on the up. The extra bounce does not help Neesham and Virat Kohli takes a superb catch at short cover. Mishra is pumped up and why not!

Pandya appeals but Guptill does not wait for the umpire to give his decision. He walks and the 42-run stand is broken. NZ 138/2 in 25.1 overs15.02 IST: Dropped! It is Mishra again! Short and outside off, Guptill pulls it over long off. Amit Mishra casually gets across to his right but misjudges the ball big time and it lands beyond his head! Bounces and goes into the ropes.

NZ 124/1 in 22 overs14.50 IST: NOT OUT! But it was very close. Jadhav bowled this from way behind the popping crease, tossed it outside off, drew Williamson forward to defend and then got it to go past the outside edge. Dhoni whipped off the bails in a flash and appealed but was not that overly confident. Replays showed the foot went in the air but got back in as well.14.48 IST: Dhoni comes down to have a chat with Axar. India have already given away a lot of runs and cannot to give away freebies.

The stand is worth 12 from 14 balls. 14.46 IST: Kane Williamson brings up the 100 for NZ with a boundary off Axar Patel. Terrific placement. This is the difference between Guptill and Williamson. The former has tried that shot plenty of times today but found the fielder to perfection. The skipper, on the other hand, has placed this in front of point and beat him in spite of the dive. 14.40 IST: Fifty for Guptill in 56 balls. This is Guptill’s 31st ODI fifty and fourth one vs India! NZ 98/1 in 16.3 oversThat’s a half-century to @Martyguptill!

Follow the game here – BCCI (@BCCI) October 26, 201612:05 PM  MS Dhoni looking settled at No.4 would like to seal the series at his own backyard but New Zealand can’t also be counted out. The toss will be again crucial keeping the dew factor in mind.Preview: After taking a 2-1 lead in the five-match One-Day International series, hosts India will aim to pocket the series when they take on New Zealand in the fourth game at the JSCA International Stadium.Post the six-run setback in the second ODI in Delhi, India got back to their winning ways after thumping the Kiwis by seven wickets at Mohali.Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (80) and his Test counterpart Virat Kohli (154 not out) joined forces with a brilliant 151-run third wicket stand to outplay the visitors after an inspiring bowling effort by the Indians helped restrict them to a modest total.Going into the fourth game, all eyes will be on India’s struggling opening duo of Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane, who have failed to fire in the first three outings. Rohit has so far managed just 42 runs in the first three matches with a dismal average of 14 while Rahane has got the starts with scores of 33, 28 and 5 but failed to translate his Test form in the 50-over format of the game. (Dhoni driving Hummer in Ranchi leaves Kiwi players awestruck) With the track at the JKSA assisting the batsmen, the Ranchi crowd will once again hope for another batting exhibition from the likes of Rohit, Kohli, Rahane, Manish Pandey and local favourite Dhoni.Dhoni, who came to bat at No.4 in the Mohali match, is once again expected to bat at the same position with Pandey, Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya to follow.The bowling department has been very impressive in all the matches so far. Seamer Umesh Yadav will lead the pack consisting of Jasprit Bumrah and Pandya. Legspinner Amit Mishra along with left-armer Axar Patel has also been amongst the wickets but more importantly it is Jadhav, who has proved to be Dhoni’s go-to man in the series so far. (Dhoni a dangerous player at No.4: Ganguly ) With six wickets in his kitty so far, the diminutive part-time off-spinner has emerged as an effective surprise weapon for Dhoni to put the brakes on during the middle overs.Moreover, with the selectors retaining the same side for the remaining two games, Dhoni as usual isn’t expected to tinkle with the winning combination.On the other hand, Wednesday’s encounter will give the New Zealanders a golden opportunity to draw level and go into the final match with a chance.Barring opener Tom Latham, the Kiwis have failed to ensure a consistent batting effort in the three matches so far.Skipper Kane Williamson, who hit a century in the Delhi game, will once again be the focal point of the Kiwi batting apart from the likes of Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson, Luke Ronchi and James Neesham.After a dismal Test series, Guptill, who is considered one of the more dangerous ODI openers, has failed to click on all the three occasions.To add to their woes, the Black Caps lack variety in their bowling. Pacers Tim Southee, Trent Boult Doug Bracewell, Matt Henry have been far from impressive in the sub-continental conditions.Despite having three spinners in Mitchell Santner, Anton Devcich and Ish Sodhi at his disposal, Williamson’s poor luck at the toss has restrained him from using their services to the fullest where dew played a part in all the three matches so far.last_img read more

first_imgTORONTO, O.N. – Walmart Canada is buying more Tesla semi trucks as it aims to reduce its carbon footprint by having its entire fleet powered by alternative energy by 2028.The Canadian subsidiary of the U.S.-based retail giant says it will acquire 30 of the 18-wheeler semi-trucks on top of the 10 ordered last November.The additional rigs, which hold the promise of eventually being switched to autonomous operation, will help Walmart Canada meet its initial goal of electrifying 20 percent of its fleet by 2022. The first 20 Tesla Semis will be used out of Mississauga, Ontario.The remaining half will operate from Walmart’s distribution centre in Surrey, B.C., set to open 2022, which will be the company’s first fully electric fleet base in the world.Delivery dates for the vehicles over the next five years haven’t been finalized.“We are always looking for innovative ways to minimize our impact on the environment and lead the industry in the drive for sustainable change,” stated John Bayliss, senior vice-president, logistics and supply chain.Walmart will have one of Canada’s largest Tesla Semi fleets. Other companies that pre-ordered the $232,000 electric trucks include Toronto trucking firm Fortigo Freight and Loblaw Companies Ltd.Tesla says the semi-trucks will offer a better experience for truck drivers, increase safety and significantly reduce the cost of cargo transport. The company says the vehicles, with a range of about 800 kilometres, will consume less than two kilowatt-hours of energy per mile at highway speed, earning 50 percent more per mile than a regular truck.Walmart says it will be able to convert from diesel quicker because the travel distance per charge is in line with its current fleet that consists mainly of single-day round trips.Vehicle cameras will help detect objects and minimize blind spots, while other safety features include automatic emergency braking, automatic lane keeping and lane departure warning.Walmart Canada operates 410 stores in Canada, serving more than 1.2 million customers per day.last_img read more

A 57-year-old Campbellville, Georgetown resident was on Thursday remanded to prison when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court to answer to a cocaine possession charge.Andre Gomes called ‘Zipper’ pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on January 30 2017, at his Campbellville home, he had over two pounds of cocaine in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.The attorney for the accused, in seeking bail, argued that the illegal substance was found in an alleyway nearby the man’s home and not inside of the house.However, his application for bail was denied.Gomes is expected to re-appear in court later this month.The home where the drugs were reportedly foundINews had reported that the Craig Street, Campbellville Georgetown man was taken into custody by the Custom Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) following the reported discovery of the cocaine.Based on reports received, ranks of the drug enforcement unit swooped down on the property on Tuesday last where they conducted a search during which the cocaine was discovered.Gomes and his wife were arrested.INews  understands that a quantity of cash, jewellery and other valuables were seized by the CANU ranks.

first_imgIf you’re a betting person, every little bit of information can help. Perusing match previews, tracking injuries and hanging off the coach’s every word might be a sure fire way to getting the upper hand against your average punter, but here at Neos Kosmos, we do things a little differently. Our bets have been psychic approved.That’s right, we’ve interviewed not one, but two Greek Australian psychics to find out who will be holding the AFL premiership cup on Saturday. Both teams definitely deserve the trophy, but one team in particular has more of an upper hand our psychics tells us. If the cards are right, we’ll be looking at an MCG bathed in red and white. Both psychics, without knowing what the other’s reading came up with tipped the Sydney Swans winning the match.They differed with the margin of points at the final siren. Tasmanian Greek Australian psychic, Cassandra Knight says her reading came up with the Swans as clear winners, while Hawthorn look like they’ll be good sports about the loss. “I think the Sydney Swans will win, Hawthorn will put in a good game,” she says.“When I do a reading for it it’s showing the Swans celebrating and Hawthorn showing a supporting role, meaning they’re not the winners but they’re second.”She thinks the Swans aren’t going to win a “long margin” and feels the match will be close. For fellow psychic, Leonidas Kolokathis, his reading was much more specific and believes Hawthorn will have the upper hand in the first half. “I think that Hawthorn will probably trump Sydney in the first quarter, so Hawthorn will be leading in the first quarter, I think Sydney and Hawthorn will be quite even in the second quarter and in the third quarter Sydney will come back and put their foot down and really get ahead and it will get even in the last quarter with Sydney just holding on,” he tells Neos Kosmos.Amazingly, when he first read the match, he saw the Sydney Swan colours and the number 16, something Leonidas interprets as meaning the Swans will win by a margin of 16 points. This was the first time Leonidas had done a reading on a sporting match, so doesn’t know how accurate his reading will be.For Cassandra, the reading was only the second sports related prediction she’s done.She correctly predicted the Marcos Baghdatis and Roger Federer Australian Open match, even if she was rooting for the Greek Cypriot to win.“I did predict it correctly, and I remember wanting the Greek guy to win,” she says with a laugh. All will be revealed on Saturday, but at least for them, their predictions come with quite good odds regardless. It’s still a 50/50 chance. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

first_imgStill, the fact that sales and marketing needed the most attention was a relief for Donohue, who pounded the beat with Petersen and group publisher Tom McIntyre. “When the owners are the day-to-day sales reps, that tells the marketplace they’re dealing with the key decision makers,” says McIntyre. By the end of 2008, CSD had 58 advertisers. Through June 2009, the magazine has added 40 new advertisers on top of that and ad pages are up 83 percent through May, according to Patterson Advertising Reports.No changes were made to CSD’s pricing (the 6x rate card is $6,169 net) and McIntyre says Harbor weeded out some of the bad inherited contracts and promised advertorials. “When ad pages drop, edit pages usually drop,” he adds. “We promised a minimum 64-page folio and at least a 50/50 ad-to-edit ratio.” Ancillary OpportunitiesPart of the CSD acquisition included a Web site and a dormant association called the National Convenience Store Advisory Group, which Harbor plans to revive.The association was  purchased on Donohue’s watch at Penton. While the National Association of Convenience Stores caters to the larger chains in the industry, the National Advisory Group was targeted to smaller chains with 10 to 100 stores. “We had to fix the magazine first but we’ve had a lot of questions from retailers about bringing it back,” says Donohue.CSD will host a reunion for the association in November and will talk with retailers about what direction it should take in 2010 and beyond. “We want this to be a retailer-run association,” says Petersen. “If we do that right, the other side of balance sheet will take care of itself.”While the Web business remains relatively small for CSD, online revenue is up 35 percent and the brand has a goal of $100,000 in 2009. Harbor has added a video player and weekly e-newsletters. CSD also does an annual three-part Webcast series. Sponsorships range from $3,500 to $10,000 per Webcast. Sam’s Club was the exclusive sponsor in 2008 and McLane took this spot in 2009. “It’s tough for a lot of people to travel these days and the Webcast enables us to deliver good content and research to their desks,” says McIntyre. Still, the print magazine remains the core product for CSD. “There is a lot of buzz with digital but it depends on whether your market wants it,” says McIntyre. “Big publishing companies are really taking the spotlight off of print but I’m a big believer in print. I’m a believer in digital, too, but print is not dead and it doesn’t have to be unless you don’t pay attention to it.” When Harbor Communications got wind in 2007 that Penton Media had decided to shutter Convenience Store Decisions, it pounced with an acquisition offer. Partly because Harbor co-founder Bill Donohue (and a former Penton retail division head) first launched the title back in 1990, and partly because Harbor sees an opportunity in print that many larger publishers no longer do.“This  was an attractive opportunity for us,” says Harbor president and co-founder (and former Penton president) Dan Ramella. “We approached them in October 2007 and the deal was finalized in about 30 days. We knew what we wanted; we were buying the brands and lists.”In fact, the deal was done so quickly that the last issue under Penton’s ownership featured a farewell note from editor John Loftsock (who joined Harbor). While editorial quality remained high and Penton previously invested in maintaining the circulation file (41,250 multi-unit executives), sales was neglected. At the time of acquisition, CSD had just four signed ad contracts for 2008. “This was late in the fall selling season and we had missed a huge industry show,” says publisher John Petersen, who joined Harbor from Penton. “By the time we got our team situated and took complete ownership, we were kind of up against it for 2008.”last_img read more

first_img Now playing: Watch this: 48 Iris Plus 4/8 But now Intel has made the tiers for different levels of integrated graphics explicit rather than folding them into the model numbers. In exchange it’s dropped the “Y” and “U” nomenclature indicating whether the chip is for a tiny laptop (Y) or a slightly bigger laptop (U). Now, if the last digit before the “G” is “0”, it’s a Y series, and if it’s a “5” it’s a U series.  For context, a 28-watt i7 powers laptops such as the Razer Blade Stealth and Dell XPS 13. The lower-power U series drives models such as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga and Microsoft Surface Book 2. And the Y series go into 13-inch or smaller ultrathins including the MacBook Air and HP Spectre Folio.  Instead, we’ve got G7, G4 and G1, which tell you which tier of integrated graphics you’re getting: “G1” for the old HD/UHD graphics, “G4” for a tweaked version of the current Iris Plus graphics (used by the 8th-generation i7-8559U, i5-8269U, i5-8259U and i3-8109U) with the same number of execution units as before and “G7” for the upgraded Iris Plus with the increased number of execution units, which is where we may see Intel’s claimed 2x performance increases.The rest remains true to form, with the first digits representing the generation — in this case, “10” — and everything sandwiched between them the specific line and product. For example, for the i7-1065G7, the i7’s line starts with “6” and the specific product is “5.” The first wave of 10th-generation mobile CPUs 4/8 i5-1035G4 Asus ZenBook Pro Duo foreshadows our multiscreen future 1.1 TDP (watts, series) 1.3 i7-1068G7 48 CPU 3.5 Iris Plus 64 1.1 0.7 Iris Plus 3.2 i7-1065G7 64 15/25 (U) 64 9/12 (Y) Iris Plus 1.05 1.1 i3-1000G4 2/4 Graphics EUs 64 Computers Components Laptops Max graphics freq (MHz) 15/25 (U) 32 While the graphics improvements vary across the CPUs, from nothing to a lot, they all incorporate the other technologies that are the hallmarks of Ice Lake and its Sunny Cove microarchitecture. These include the AI-based DL Boost for accelerating AI inferencing (“DL” stands for “deep learning”), Gaussian & Neural Accelerator (GNA) for low-power-draw background processing (like parsing spoken commands) and support for the newest version of its Dynamic Tuning, which optimizes the allocation of system resources (like CPU cores and power draw) based on workload. They’ll also support Intel’s flavor of Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6 Gig Plus, which is essentially Wi-Fi 6 with the optional 160MHz channel-bandwidth implementation rather than just the base 80MHz, up to four Thunderbolt 3 devices and faster memory. Actually having both of those in a given laptop, though, is of course subject to the design decisions of the system manufacturers.

For the GPU, I wish Intel had followed AMD’s lead and gone with “Iris Plus 64,” or something similarly dead obvious. Then again, all the nuance will just get washed away in system manufacturer specs that will boast the vague “10th-gen i7!”We’ll get used to it, but I shudder to think what the rest of the 10th-gen cohort will bring with respect to naming.Also, take Intel’s claims of the ability to “watch 4K HDR video in a billion colors” with a grain of salt. All it really means is that the GPU now understands what to do with HDR; there are a lot of other elements of a system that need to be in place to make it look like HDR. Hopefully, though, it will give Microsoft an incentive to make HDR less dysfunctional in Windows 10.   1.1 15/25 (U) 64 i5-1030G7center_img 1.1 3.2 1.2 28 (U) 15/25 (U) UHD Graphics Base freq (GHz) 1.2 Iris Plus 0.9 4/8 3.4 16 Photos 0.8 i5-1030G4 Iris Plus Max all core turbo (GHz) 3.3 0 3.2 15/25 (U) 2/4 Enlarge ImageIntel’s 10nm Ice Lake architecture details Stephen Shankland/CNET Intel’s finally unveiled the mobile Core CPU product lineup based on its 10th-gen Ice Lake architecture, and suffice it to say that buying a laptop in the coming months probably just got a little more complicated.

Upgraded integrated graphics with support for VESA adaptive sync tops the list of new capabilities. The incorporation of Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 3 into the CPU die (instead of as part of a supporting chipset), made possible by moving to a 10nm fabrication process from 14nm, lets us do away with the extra driver required for Thunderbolt.

first_imgConsuming protein rich foods such as nuts, eggs, seeds, beans, poultry, yogurt, cheese and even chocolates may foster a more tolerant and less inflammatory gut environment, which could mean relief for people living with abdominal pain and diarrhoea of inflammatory bowel disease, a study has said.These food items contain an appreciable amounts of tryptophan – an amino acid used in the buildup of proteins – which when fed on mice led to the development of immune cells that foster a tolerant gut, the study said. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe findings indicated that a protein rich diet triggers the appearance of immune cells in Lactobacillus reuteri (L. reuteri) – a bacterium that normally lives in the gut, and together these promote a more tolerant, less inflammatory gut immune system.”We established a link between one bacterial species – Lactobacillus reuteri – that is a normal part of the gut microbiome, and development of a population of cells that promote tolerance,” said Marco Colonna, the Robert Rock Belliveau, Professor at the Washington University School of Medicine in St.Louis. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”The more tryptophan the mice had in their diet, the more of these immune cells they had,” Belliveau added.For the study, published in the journal Science, the team examined mice that had lived under sterile conditions since birth and was germ-free.When L. reuteri was introduced to these mice, the immune cells arose. Further, when tryptophan was doubled in the mice’s feed, the number of such cells rose by about 50 per cent.Humans have the same tolerance-promoting cells as mice, and have L. reuteri in the gastrointestinal tracts.”The development of these cells is probably something we want to encourage since these cells control inflammation on the inner surface of the intestines,” explained Luisa Cervantes-Barragan, Postdoctoral researcher from the varsity. “High levels of tryptophan in the presence of L. reuteri may induce expansion of this population,” Cervantes-Barragan said.ianslast_img read more
