Lenovo is the most obvious standout as it has executed tablet strategy well both in China and abroad,” Jeff Orr, senior practice director at ABI, said.ABI also noted that “Intel aims to make a large splash during 2014”, with a projected 40 million devices powered by its processors. A “significant portion” is likely to come from smaller manufacturers in China and Taiwan, which are developing next-generation Android tablets for the second half of the year.

Sei Young Kim shares ShopRite lead

first_imgGALLOWAY, N.J. – Sei Young Kim birdied seven of her last 10 holes for a share of the lead with Celine Herbin in the suspended second round of the ShopRite LPGA. Kim was 10 under for the tournament with three holes left when play was suspended because of darkness. Herbin had her second straight 5-under 66. Herbin birdied No. 18 after play resumed following a delay of nearly three hours because of lightning strikes in the area. The Frenchwoman left her job as a biochemical engineer at age 27 to become a professional golfer. Herbin had made the cut in just five of 11 tournaments prior to this week. ”There is no secret really, just keep working on what I’m doing,” she said. ”I don’t care if you miss 10 cuts if you win the 11th. The missed cut doesn’t mean too much. What means more is the work you do every day.” Full-field scores from the ShopRite LPGA Classic Kim, a six-time LPGA winner, was one of 36 players unable to complete the round. Mariah Stackhouse (65), Annie Park (65), Ashleigh Buhai (66) and Su Oh (two holes left) were two strokes back. Stackhouse is trying to become the tour’s first black winner. ”It’s not added pressure,” said Stackhouse, a second-year LPGA player. ”When I’m on the golf course, I’m not performing as a black American. I’m just trying to make as many birdie putts as I can and saving all the pars that I can.” Two-time champion Anna Nordqvist had a 73 to drop from a tie for first to a tie for 34th at 3 under.last_img read more

Remind them to only accept friend requests from people they know, never give out personal information in a chat room or through instant messaging, and give them the confidence to recognise when a situation is becoming abusive or harmful. It is especially important that your children know what to do if a situation online makes them feel uncomfortable and that they have the confidence to tell a trusted adult.“You can also use privacy settings and parental controls to ensure they are only accessing age appropriate material.

News / No peak season for China’s air freight market – ‘it’s been peak season all year’

first_imgAnd with August imports up 24.3% year-on-year, to 64,400 tonnes, Mr Haug noted that there was an almost even import-export split at the terminal.“Basically, we have full flights in and full flights out. The import growth is driven by demand from Chinese consumers – for foodstuffs and perishable goods the demand is very high. But all commodities into China are growing,” he added.Since opening a 100,000-tonne capacity cool centre last year, perishable volumes have grown quickly from Africa and other fruit-growing regions. However, it is fresh fish imports, such as salmon, that are having the biggest impact on perishables growth.“The Chinese authorities made it easier to import salmon and the demand is very strong. We even increased our capacity of coolers in one of our warehouses because of the very strong demand at local restaurants,” said Mr Haug.Meanwhile, crowded runways and traffic restrictions at both of Shanghai’s international airports, Pudong and Hongqiao, means new airline slots are rare. Mr Haug said airlines were currently able to add capacity by using additional slots previously allocated, or by switching to larger aircraft.“What we see, especially with the freighter airlines, is that those which historically had additional slots, or were smart enough to request them, now use them all and do not cancel any flights. Whereas last year, it was quite common to see them take some flights out of the programme.”With Shanghai approaching capacity, PACTL is already gearing up to handle the overflow via its Nantong Xingdong Airport Cargo Terminal. Located 130km from Shanghai, Mr Haug said the joint-venture with Nantong Airport had long term potential as a freighter hub once the customs issues were ironed out. Nantong is in a neighbouring province to Shanghai and thus under a different customs jurisdiction.“But in terms of trucking between Shanghai it’s no problem at all,” he said. “Especially when you consider Zhengzhou, a city far north-west of Shanghai in Henan Province. It has a growing airport and you still see a lot of cargo going there from Shanghai because of the capacity situation here.“So if we develop Nantong we can keep a lot of that cargo in this area.”Looking ahead to the  final quarter, Mr Haug believes that with volumes already so high and capacity tight, there will be no big peak season.“All year we have had a peak season. For example, the August numbers are comparable with what we achieved last year in October and November, normally the peak season.“Many airlines are saying that because they’re unable to add additional flights, maybe here and there a bit more cargo will be coming, but overall you will not see a jump like you normally see. It will just continue and increase slowly increase.” © Cougarsan By Sam Whelan, Asia correspondent 14/09/2017center_img China’s air freight market may not see much of a peak in volumes this year – because it has been at peak levels all year and there is little available capacity for more.Despite concerns in July that the Chinese market was slowing, Pudong International Airport Cargo Terminal (PACTL) continued a record-breaking year in August, reporting 13.9% year-on-year growth to 157,000 tonnes.The result follows a strong first-half performance that saw the terminal handle 874,000 tonnes, beating its 2016 volumes by 12%.PACTL vice-president Christian Haug said 2017 was shaping up to be a particularly strong year: “Normally Europe is strong, or the US, or India, but I think this year there are no weak tradelanes in either direction.” he said.last_img read more

I was having a conversation with Eddie Jones when we were at the Barbarians [towards the end of last year], and it was interesting to hear him say that Dan Carter only really become a great 10 at the age of about 28.‘That really sunk in with me and it proves that in a specialist position, you need to play there lots to become really world class. It will take many years, lots of mistakes, and lots of patience … I think I’ve started to regain my confidence again, though, and become more like myself again.’With the Sharks also playing with a lot more freedom and ambition, Bosch credits the work that had been put in by the coaches.‘It was a matter of resetting everything [at the beginning of the year], but we still had a lot of familiar faces around, which made things a lot easier in that sense … the way Sean approaches things and the way he’s given us freedom to express ourselves have been really commendable.‘I think a lot of credit also has to go to [assistant coach] Dave [Williams], who runs our attack and has instilled real confidence in us.’Photo: Steve Haag Sports/Hollywoodbets ‘ Published on April 22, 2020 Post by Craig Lewis ‘ 熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAaron Smith names South African as greatest World Cup scrumhalfSA Rugby MagUndoJapan-based Kiwi player: I hope to never experience this againSA Rugby MagUndo熱門話題不要被酵素騙了!在萬寧賣的「這個」直接針對脂肪…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Curwin Bosch ‘last_img read more

What are his qualifications? Honest questions. West New York Parking Authority Executive Director Jamie Cryan is poised to be named the town’s new business administrator at tonight’s board of commissioners meeting, according to multiple sources. John Heinis/Hudson County ViewCryan, who currently earns about $90,000 a year as the head of the town’s parking authority, is expected to receive a contract worth $120,000 a year to serve as West New York’s new business administrator, multiple sources confirmed to Hudson County View.The sources, who spoke under the condition of anonymity since they were not authorized to speak on the matter, added that Cryan’s current agreement with the parking authority would have entitled him to a significant raise for the next fiscal year.A former Hoboken Democratic Committee chair, Cryan had his contract at the parking authority renewed back in July, and in a one-on-one interview, expressed enthusiasm for introducing a phone app that allows people to pay for parking – also noting that West New York has the lowest parking rates in Hudson County.Cryan would potentially replace Matthew Watkins, a former director of the New Jersey Division of Local Government Services, who earned $196,000 a year.Watkins left West New York on October 2 to accept the same job with the Township of Bloomfield, where he lives.While there has been no interim business administrator in Watkins absence, many have consider Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner to be filling that void as a special projects consultant.As of this writing, no one has been selected to fill in as the parking authority executive director if Cryan is appointed as the new B.A.Multiple town officials did not immediately return calls seeking comment, but a copy of this evening’s agenda has the appointment of a new business administrator as the first item. Ed Mel B, here’s his resume: Friends with your friend Anthony “Stick” Romano, HudCo Freeholder.Friends with your friend Terry Castellano, former decades long Hoboken councilwoman.Friends with your friend Beth Mason, former Hoboken councilwoman.Friends with Sen. Bob Menendez via his cousin, Union County’s Joe Cryan.Are you getting a clue yet?Oh and get as much loot as you can over to Lane Bajardi and Kim Cardinal Bajardi.They need you to back up your money commitment.

Video shows wanted woman in double murder talking to alleged victim before killing, police say

first_imgDodge County Sheriff’s Office(FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla.) — Authorities in Florida released surveillance video on Monday that, they say, shows a Minnesota grandmother wanted in two killings smiling and chatting up one of her alleged victims in a bar.Sgt. Anita Iriarte of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office in Florida told ABC News the footage from the Smokin’ Oyster Brewery showed suspect Lois Riess, 56, wearing a light-blue shirt and with white-gray hair, talking to Pamela Hutchinson.Hutchinson, 59, was found fatally shot at her motel April 9, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. Her cash, credit cards, identification and white Acura had been stolen, police said. Police said the video was taken on April 5, 2018, at 5:40 p.m. in Fort Myers.Police also said surveillance images appeared to show Riess leaving the motel.“Our suspect is absolutely armed and dangerous. … She may look like anyone’s grandmother or mother but behind that smile is a cold-blooded murderer,” Lee County Undersheriff Carmine Marceno told ABC affiliate WZVN-TV.This weekend, authorities kicked off a cross-country manhunt for Riess of Blooming Prairie, Minnesota, whom they suspect of also shooting her husband, David, dead at their Minnesota home March 23 and then taking off in their car.Marceno said Riess “loves casinos” and has a “gambling problem.”Police said that after she allegedly killed her husband, Riess made a stop at an Iowa casino. Then the trail went cold for two weeks. She then made her way to Fort Myers, Florida, where, police said, she befriended Hutchinson.Hutchinson looked like Riess, police said, and they allege Riess’ mode of operation was to befriend women before stealing their identity. Police in Fort Myers Beach, Florida, identified Riess as a suspect in Hutchinson’s death.Police said Riess allegedly drove Hutchinson’s car to Corpus Christi, Texas, where it was last spotted. Marceno said she may be in Mexico.“Our main fear is once her resources, once she diminishes all her resources, that she will be desperate and she will commit another act of violence,” he said. “We don’t want any more acts of violence or God forbid murder. … She’s on the run and we need to do everything we can to bring her to justice.”Riess has three adult children and is a grandmother as well, according to Dodge County Sheriff Scott Rose. She has no criminal record, according to authorities. She is now wanted for murder, grand theft auto and identity theft.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
