Huawei Forecasts 30 billion Revenue Decrease in 2019

Rabat – Huawei’s founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei has said that the telecommunication company forecast a $30 billion decrease in revenue over the next few years. The prediction comes in the wake of President Trump’s executive order blacklisting Huawei in the US. The legislation prevents American mobile equipment makers from trading with the tech company. .“In the next two years, I think we will reduce our capacity, our revenue will be down by about $30 billion compared to the forecast, so our sales revenue this year and next year will be about $100 billion,” Ren Zhengfei said Monday during a panel discussion at Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen. In 2018, Huawei’s revenue grew by 19.5%, surpassing $100 billion for the first time.Earlier this year the United States government accused Huawei of using international networks for espionage purposes. So far the evidence behind the accusation has not been made public.On 15 May 2019, President Trump signed an executive order banning American companies from trading with any foreign telecommunication providers named on a blacklist of companies thought to pose a threat to the US national security.Read also: Huawei Signs Deal with Russia, Escalating Tensions with the USTo comply with the ban, Google announced that they would no longer provide Huawei with pre-release access to Android software updates.

Better prevention and response systems needed to avoid another Chernobyl UN

“Pooling of expertise through cooperation is essential,” said Harri Holkeri of Finland. “For the future of our global village, we should be able to answer its call for stringent disaster-prevention measures, and functioning emergency crisis management systems, where radioactive materials are being, or will be, processed.”The Assembly President also said the world needed to prioritize its actions in researching, monitoring and securing the safety of older nuclear plants currently in operation. Regulating illicit trafficking of hazardous materials and securing the safety of nuclear material transport are also of high importance, he said.At UN headquarters in New York, the anniversary was marked with the ringing of the Peace Bell by Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Kenzo Oshima. “This Peace Bell which we ring today is cast from coins donated by representatives of 60 countries and from individual contributions of various metals,” he said. “We hope very much that the symbolism of this kind of spirit of unity and cooperation will trigger the wide-ranging support that is urgently needed to help those that are still suffering from the consequences of Chernobyl.”The Chernobyl disaster occurred on 26 April 1986 when two explosions destroyed a reactor at a power plant not far from Kiev, Ukraine, contaminating an area of over 160,000 square kilometres with the release of 50 million units of radiation. Thirty people were killed instantly and radioactive material spread across Europe, causing at least 6,000 subsequent deaths and health problems affecting millions of people in Ukraine, the Russian Federation and Belarus. The plant was shut down on 15 December 2000. read more

UN East Timorese officials refute allegations of bias at UN mission

Responding to recent media reports criticizing UNTAET following the resignation of its chief of staff, Nagalingam Parameswaran, a spokesman for UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan said today that Mr. Annan had “full confidence” in the mission’s leadership.Meanwhile, in a letter to the New Straits Times of Malaysia, Shashi Tharoor, Interim Head of the UN Department of Public Information, rejected “implicit suggestions of racism” contained in the newspaper’s account of the reasons for Mr. Parameswaran’s departure. Mr. Tharoor pointed out that more than one-fifth of UNTAET’s international staff came from Asia and that prior to Mr. Parameswaran’s resignation, Asians held two of the mission’s top four posts.For his part, José Ramos-Horta, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the East Timor Transitional Government, acknowledged Mr. Parameswaran’s hard work in East Timor, but stressed that the description of UNTAET as “a white mission” was unwarranted. In a statement released in Dili, Mr. Ramos-Horta added that many people had devoted “many months, many long hours, to East Timor. Mr. Parameswaran is one, but there many others of many nationalities – Europeans, whites and non-whites – so I do not think it is fair to call this a white-dominated mission.”In other news, a battalion of UN peacekeepers from Jordan today bid farewell to the East Timor enclave of Oecussi, located in Indonesian-controlled West Timor, as UNTAET continued to reduce the number of international troops in the territory.In a change of command ceremony attended by UNTAET chief Sergio Vieira de Mello and a host of government and military officials, the Jordanian peacekeepers formally turned over responsibility for the enclave to a battalion from the Republic of Korea reassigned from the eastern sector of the island, where the bulk of UNTAET’s military downsizing is occurring.The first battalion of the newly formed East Timor Defence Force is expected to become fully operational by the middle of this year and will assume responsibility for security there.The Jordanian contingent is scheduled to have fully withdrawn from Oecussi by the end of the month. Their departure follows that of Philippine and Kenyan troops from other districts late last year. UNTAET’s ongoing downsizing will reduce the current authorized level of 8,000 international troops to around 5,000 by East Timor’s independence on 20 May. read more

BBC Proms to give half of new commissions to women by 2022

first_imgThe BBC Proms is to introduce gender balancing to its programme, pledging that half of all new commissions will go to women by 2022.Female composers appearing in this year’s programme include Anna Meredith, who will create a “monster orchestra piece” for the First Night of the Proms to be performed outside the Royal Albert Hall with images projected onto its walls.The Proms is one of 45 international music festivals signed up to a new initiative which aims to “create much-needed change” in the industry by increasing the proportion of female artists.However, the 50/50 gender balance will not apply to soloists, orchestras or conductors. Sexism in the classical world was thrown into the spotlight recently by Mariss Jansons, the acclaimed conductor, who told the Telegraph that “seeing a woman on the podium… well, let’s just say it’s not my cup of tea.” He later apologised for his “undiplomatic” comment.Festivals were invited to implement the gender balance pledge, called Keychange, “in a way that best makes sense to their programme and music genre”. Some have chosen to balance their line-up of performers, but the Proms will restrict the initiative to contemporary composers. Marin Alsop was the first woman to conduct The Last Night of the Proms Credit:Neil Hall/Reuters Judith Weir David Pickard, director of the BBC Proms, said the 2022 target is “a crucial statement for gender equality by the arts industry”. “I have to say I’m still quite shocked that it can be 2013 and there can still be firsts for women,” she told the audience, adding: “Here’s to the second, third, fourth, fifth, hundredth to come.”Days earlier, the principal conductor of the National Youth Orchestra and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko, had claimed orchestras perform better for male conductors because “a cute girl on a podium means that musicians think about other things”.The 45 festivals that have signed up for the gender initiative include Manchester Jazz Festival, Liverpool International Music Festival, Aldeburgh Festival and Cheltenham Music Festival.None of the major pop and rock festivals, such as Glastonbury or London’s Wireless Festival, have signed the pledge. Wireless last year featured just three women. Last year, a BBC survey found that 80 per cent of festival headliners were male. Marin Alsopcenter_img When Marin Alsop became the first female conductor of The Last Night of the Proms in 2013,  she used her platform to make a speech calling for greater inclusion in the classical world.

Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. “Achieving a 50/50 gender balance of contemporary composers performed at the BBC Proms is something we have been committed to for some time and consider vital to the creative development of the world’s largest classical music festival,” he said.At last year’s festival, 10 out of 29 contemporary composers were women, including Hannah Kendall, Judith Weir and Lotta Wennakoski.Anna Meredith, who mixes contemporary classical, pop, electronica and rock in her compositions, has campaigned for greater female representation in the industry.She said: “I think it’s fantastic to put a date on this and have something solid to aim for. There are many fantastic women composers who weren’t given recognition in their lifetime. Now there are loads of younger female composers who are getting out there, writing amazing music.”She dismissed Janson’s comments as “bonkers”, but said: “There is obviously sexism in classical music, as in every industry. When you hear comments [from Mariss Jansons] it comes as such a shock because you want to believe we are all heading in the right direction, then you hear something like that and think, ‘Oh, we’re still back there.’”Her First Night of the Proms piece, Five Telegrams, was commissioned to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

MineSpace and Hexagon Geospatial form partnership

first_imgHexagon Geospatial is partnering with MineSpace in Australia to provide software as a service to the mining industry. Headquartered in Perth, MineSpace provides innovative solutions to the geoscience and mining industry to help gain access to affordable software that they commonly use through pay-as-you-go options. Imagery processing forms the backbone of the geoscience industry – especially in the fields of exploration geology and mining – where functions such as interpolation, colour stretches, and batch processing are necessary. MineSpace recognised the need for a software that has been proven popular in Australia before, and thereby zeroed in on ERDAS IMAGINE® and ERDAS ER Mapper.Using its infrastructure, MineSpace will be offering Hexagon Geospatial software through a Software as a Service, enabling more people to make use of the cutting edge technology.

They are aligned to the market trend of deploying solutions through flexible software-as-a-service offerings, and extending itself from a service provider to a solution provider.”last_img read more

Coffee Joulies use phase change material to make your cups temp just

first_imgPeople who drink coffee know how much it sucks when you grab a cup from your local coffee shop, take sip, and recoil from the burning hot liquid you need so badly to start your day. If only there was a way to cool your coffee down quickly, without sticking ice cubes in it, or leaving the lid off for 5 minutes before you can take another sip… Fortunately, two guys named Dave have created a solution to this common problem with a product called Coffee Joulies.Dave Petrillo and Dave Jackson spent the past nine months working from opposite ends of the country to develop Joulies with the intent of creating the “perfect coffee drinking experience.” The Joulies absorb extra thermal energy in your coffee when it’s too hot, and cools it down to a drinkable temperature three times faster than if you sat and waited. Joulies also releases that stored energy back into your coffee, which keeps it at the right temperature for twice as long.AdChoices广告For those of you thinking this process sounds very similar to that of phase change materials, you’d be right. The polished stainless steel beans hold this high-tech stuff inside of them, which is how the magic beans work. The PCM is a solid, but it melts like wax when heated and turns to a liquid. The PCM is designed to melt at 140 degrees. Most coffee is brewed at 200 degrees. So, as the material melts it absorbs the heat of the coffee, stores it, and brings the coffee’s temperature down to the right temp. Then, it slowly releases this stored energy back into the coffee as the material starts to solidify again, and keeps your coffee warm twice as long.Of course, the better insulated your cup is, the better the Joulies will work. In a ceramic mug, Joulies will keep your coffee at the right temperature range for only a few minutes longer than usual. This is because mugs are poor insulators and are designed to keep your hand from being burned. Putting a lid on your coffee will make a difference, since the less heat that’s lost to the environment, the more is stored in the Joulies.Though the Joulies are marketed towards hot beverages like coffee and tea, we see no reason as to why it couldn’t work reversely, and keep cool beverages cool for a longer period of time.Each Joulie is made to work with 5 ounces of volume and displace about 1.5 tablespoons per bean. They take up about 15 percent of the volume of your cup or thermos, which is about the same amount you’d use for cream. Since they’re made using the same materials and a very similar process as table knives, they’re supposed to last a lifetime.You can’t rush out to buy these just yet. The two Daves are looking for some support via Kickstarter, but you can pre-order a set of five Coffee Jouilies packaged in a reusable carrying pouch for 20 percent off the $50 retail price. There are additional packages at higher levels to help the product get off the ground, which you can see at the Kickstarter page.Read more at Kickstarterlast_img read more

France deux femmes meurent de la grippe A en PoitouCharente

first_imgFrance : deux femmes meurent de la grippe A en Poitou-CharenteAlors que la France et l’Europe sont actuellement en proie à une épidémie de grippe qui n’a rien d’anormale en cette période de l’année, deux femmes sont décédées en Poitou-Chareute du fait du virus H1N1.Les deux victimes de la grippe H1N1 en Poitou-Charente avaient 37 et 56 ans. La première est décédée au CHU de Poitiers samedi 8 janvier des suites d’une infection pulmonaire provoquée par le virus H1N1. Une porte-parole de l’hôpital a expliqué à l’AFP que la patiente ne présentait a priori aucun facteur de risques face à la maladie. La seconde victime quant à elle s’était vu diagnostiquer une grippe saisonnière classique le jour du réveillon de la nouvelle année, et le traitement classique pour la maladie lui avait été recommandé.Pourtant, face à ces deux décès dans la même région, l’Agence régionale d’hospitalisation tient à préciser que la région Poitou-Charente n’est pas plus exposée qu’une autre à la grippe A, et que la phase épidémique est tout à fait normale. Le 5 janvier dernier, 433.000 personnes avaient été touchées par la grippe en deux semaines selon le réseau Sentinelles Inserm. La région la plus touchée était le Nord-Pas-de-Calais.Le 12 janvier 2011 à 15:29 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

LUnion soviétique a menti sur la mission de Youri Gagarine en 1961

first_imgL’Union soviétique a menti sur la mission de Youri Gagarine en 1961Les autorités soviétiques auraient menti sur le succès de la mission de Youri Gagarine en 1961, en cachant que les scientifiques avaient mal calculé le lieu d’atterrissage de l’astronaute. C’est ce que révèle un livre récemment publié par un journaliste russe.Le 12 avril prochain, cela fera précisément 50 ans que l’astronaute russe Youri Gagarine a effectué le tout premier voyage dans l’espace. Un vol historique dont on ne sait apparemment pas tout. En effet, le journaliste russe Anton Pervushin vient tout juste de publier un livre qui révèle que les autorités russes ont à l’époque “étouffé” certains détails pour confirmer le succès de la mission.À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESAIntitulé “‘108 minutes that changed the world”, le livre explique que les scientifiques avaient à deux reprises mal calculé le lieu d’atterrissage de l’astronaute, expliquant pourquoi il n’y avait personne pour accueillir Youri Gagarine lors de son retour sur Terre. “Pendant de nombreuses années, la littérature soviétique a prétendu que Youri Gagarine et sa capsule Vostok avaient atterri exactement dans la zone qui avait été prévue. Mais cette information était très loin de la vérité”, explique le livre, qui précise que l’équipe soviétique s’attendait à ce que l’astronaute arrive près de 400 kilomètres plus au sud. De retour sur la terre ferme, Youri Gagarine aurait ainsi été contraint de chercher un moyen de contacter l’équipe pour dire où il était.Mais ce n’est pas le seul détail “arrangé” par l’équipe soviétique. Il semblerait que celle-ci ait aussi menti sur le moyen d’atterrissage. A l’époque, il était prévu que l’astronaute soit encore dans la capsule au moment de toucher terre alors que Youri Gagarine a atterri séparément après s’être parachuté. Selon le livre, ces éléments auraient été cachés pour éviter que le vol ne soit pas officiellement enregistré comme un record mondial. Par ailleurs, l’auteur Anton Pervushin a également publié dans son oeuvre une lettre de l’astronaute adressée à sa femme avant la mission, qui témoigne qu’il n’était pas sûr de revenir vivant de son voyage.Le 31 mars 2011 à 10:44 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Solidarity with Bangladesh student movement in Britain India

first_imgSolidarity congregations and processions were held in East London, UK, and Kolkata, India, on Sunday and Monday respectively expressing solidarity with the recent student movement in Bangladesh demanding safe roads.A large number of Bangladeshi immigrants and others in Britain, held a congregation at Altab Ali Park in East London Sunday and sought redress to the chaotic traffic movement in Bangladesh.The participants said the the movement was to ‘awaken the conscience’ and denounced the attacks on the students under police cover.The participants also carried placards with slogans, ‘safe roads’, ‘we want justice’, ‘rule of law’ and so on. An English woman also joined the protest with a placard that said, ‘How can a police beat the students!’The congregation observed two-minute silence for the two students killed by a reckless bus in Kurmitola, Dhaka on 29 July triggering the mass protest.Later, a human chain formed by the participants called on the Bangladesh government to implement the nine-point demands declared by the young protesters.They also denounced deployment of police and vigilante to contain the student movement.In India, the student wing of the leftist SUCI (Socialist Unity Centre of India), Democratic Students Organisation (DSO) of West Bengal held a ‘solidarity procession’ on Monday in Kolkata empathising with the young protesters’ cause in Bangladesh.The procession starting from Ramlila Maidan in Kolkata marched towards the Deputy High Commission of Bangladesh.The demonstrators holding placards with varied slogans called on to stop violence against the students.Police halted the procession, as the participants reached near the Deputy High Commission. The demonstrators then delivered a message to the protesting students expressing empathy with the movement.“The movement of the students in Bangladesh demanding safe roads is a source of inspiration for us.

Small Box Big Benefits

first_img If you’d rather be doing actual work than watching the telephone repairman bent over your PBX trying to install a software upgrade, it might be time to move on up to a self-managing unified communications solution. IBM’s new Lotus Foundations Reach system fits the bill.

With unified communications in one small appliance, we’re aiming to deliver more than that old PBX for under $3,400.”The approach has small business written all over it: You don’t need an IT staff to set it up, you don’t need a receptionist to direct calls, and the best part is that you’ll never again see (or pay) the PBX man again. –D.O. 2 min read This story appears in the November 2009 issue of Entrepreneur.
