first_imgApple Inc’s recently launched iPad Mini is 7.87 inches tall and 5.3 inches wide, compared with the full-size iPad, which is 9.5 inches by 7.31 inches. The new device also sports two cameras, on the front and on the back, which the competitors don’t.The iPad Mini is as thin as a pencil and weighs 0.68 pounds, half as much as the full-size iPad with its 9.7-inch screen.

Later, the company will add models capable of accessing cellular, LTE data networks.The new model has better apps and is easier to use than competitors such as Google’s Nexus, said Avi Greengart, a consumer electronics analyst with Current Analysis.Apple is charging $329 and up for the Mini – a price that fits into the Apple product lineup between the latest iPod Touch ($299) and the iPad 2 ($399). Company watchers had been expecting Apple to price the iPad Mini at $250 to $300 to compete with the Kindle Fire, which starts at $159. Barnes & Noble Inc.’s Nook HD and Google Inc.’s Nexus 7 both start at $199.”Apple had an opportunity to step on the throat of Amazon and Google, yet decided to rely on its brand and focus on (profit) margin,” said Bill Kreher, an analyst with brokerage Edward Jones.Apple shares fell $20.67, or 3.3 percent, to close at $613.36 after the price was announced. Shares of Barnes & Noble jumped 88 cents, or 6.1 percent, to $15.32. Shares of Amazon rose 53 cents, or 0.2 percent, to $234.31.Apple has sold more than 100 million iPads since their debut in April 2010.

Federer’s Dream to Win First US Open Title in 11 Years Ended by Unseeded Rival Dubbed ‘Baby Fed’

first_img federerFederer US OpenFederer vs Grigor DimitrovGrigor Dimitrov First Published: September 4, 2019, 10:12 AM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak. Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. New York: Grigor Dimitrov rallied for a shocking upset of 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer at the US Open on Tuesday, the lowest-ranked New York semi-finalist in 28 years advancing to face Daniil Medvedev. The 78th-ranked Bulgarian, who had dropped all seven prior meetings with Federer, made a dramatic fightback to defeat the Swiss third seed 3-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 at Arthur Ashe Stadium and will face Russian fifth seed Medvedev in Friday’s semis. Coming into the U.S. Open, the 78th ranked Dimitrov, dubbed “Baby Fed” because of the similarities between his game and Federer’s, did not look much of a threat, posting just one win from his last eight matches.But the Bulgarian, who had been ranked as high as number three, has found some form on the New York hardcourts and claimed his first win in eight meetings with the 20-times Grand Slam winner.”I’m just happy,” Dimitrov said. “The only thing I was telling myself was to stay in the match. Physically I was feeling pretty good. I was hitting some shots against him that were hard to hit.”Dimitrov reached his first US Open semi-final to match the deepest Slam runs of his career from Wimbledon in 2014 and the 2017 Australian Open.Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria looks towards the player’s box after winning the fourth set against Roger Federer. (Photo: Reuters)Not since 174th-ranked Jimmy Connors reached the 1991 quarter-finals had New York seen so lowly a figure on the ATP ratings list reach the last four. Dimitrov is also the lowest-ranked Slam semi-finalist since 94th-rated Rainer Schuettler of Germany at Wimbledon in 2008.Federer was denied on five break points in the 10th game of the fourth set and Dimitrov held to force a fifth set.”I was trying to stay in that game and make him stay on the court as much as possible. After that he started slowing down a little bit,” Dimitrov said. “It’s a best of five sets. Anything can happen.”Federer went off the court for a private medical timeout to treat his upper back near his neck. “This is Grigor’s moment, not my body’s moment,” Federer said.Dimitrov broke Federer twice on the way to a 4-0 lead in the final set and the 38-year-old Swiss star had no effective reply, foiled by 61 unforced errors in falling after three hours and 12 minutes. “It’s OK. It’s how it goes,” Federer said. “I tried my best. I fought with what I had and that’s it.”Federer, a five-time US Open champion who hasn’t lifted the Flushing Meadows title since 2008, would have become the oldest Slam semi-finalist since Jimmy Connors at age 39 at the 1991 US Open. last_img read more

Copa America 2019: Lionel Messi refuses to attend medal ceremony after angry reaction to red card

first_img Reuters July 7, 2019UPDATED: July 7, 2019 10:17 IST Lionel Messi was sent off during the 1st half of Argentina’s win over Chile in Copa America 3rd-place match (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSMessi was shown the red card during Argentina’s 3rd place match vs ChileThe corruption, the referees, they don’t allow people to enjoy football: MessiDespite losing Messi in the 1st half, Argentina defeated Chile to win the bronzeLionel Messi was sent off before halftime and then angrily hit out at “corrupt” tournament organisers after Argentina beat Chile 2-1 to win a bad-tempered third-place playoff at the Copa America on Saturday.The match was 34 minutes old when Chilean captain Gary Medel shepherded out a ball near his own goal. Messi challenged him from behind and Medel reacted angrily, pushing the Argentine and raising his hands.The Paraguayan referee showed Medel a red card and even though Messi did not react, he too was sent off, prompting boos in Sao Paulo’s Corinthians arena. Reports said the Barcelona forward did not attend the ceremony to receive his third-place medal and he later hit out at the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL).”We don’t have to be part of this corruption,” Messi told reporters. “The lack of respect that they have showed us throughout this tournament.”Sadly, the corruption, the referees, they don’t allow people to enjoy football, they ruined it a bit.”I think the cup is fixed for Brazil,” Messi added. “I hope that the VAR and the referees have nothing to do in this final and that Peru can compete because they have the team to do so although I think it’s difficult.”His comments came four days after Argentina were beaten 2-0 by arch rivals Brazil in a semi-final that was marked by a number of contentious refereeing decisions.Argentina were furious that VAR was not consulted for two possible penalty decision, with the Argentine Football Association president writing an angry letter to CONMEBOL to express his disgust.advertisementMessi’s frustration was evident in the mixed zone after what was only the second red card of his career.”You saw what happened,” he told reporters. “A yellow would have ended it for both of us. The important thing is that with 10 the team finished well and won.”The referee also showed six yellow cards in a match that was disrupted by 37 fouls.Sergio Aguero put Argentina 1-0 ahead in 12 minutes and Paulo Dybala made it two 10 minutes later with a nice finish after Giovani Lo Celso put him through on goal.Artur Vidal pulled one back for Chile from the penalty spot 14 minutes into the second half.Hosts Brazil face Peru in the final on Sunday in Rio de Janeiro.Also Read | Gianluigi Buffon returns to Juventus after year at PSGAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Canadian backpack makers eye expansion abroad morph into lifestyle brands

first_imgVANCOUVER – Canada’s backpack makers are experiencing a boon beyond the traditionally busy back-to-school season as students and consumers with all types of carryall needs flock to their designs.That demand is pushing homegrown names like Herschel Supply Co. and Matt & Nat to scale up and open flagship stores, expand their bricks-and-mortar footprints and release products beyond just schoolbags.The back-to-school lead-up is “hot, hot, hot, hot,” said Manny Kohil, CEO of Montreal-based vegan bag brand Matt & Nat.“Month of August is always on fire,” he said, adding that flows into the first week of September before slowing down.Parents plan to spend an average of more than $300 on back-to-school shopping this year, according to an online survey conducted by Maru/Blue for Capital One.Parents will spend an average of about $45 on backpacks — though that jumps to about $68 for high-school students. About 40 per cent of respondents admitted they’d likely go over budget on supplies.The survey was conducted between July 27 and 29, and questioned 276 adults with school-age kids. The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.Herschel Supply Co. anticipated a line out the door at its flagship Vancouver store, which opened this summer, in the three weeks leading up to the first day of school.The business certainly benefits from that time of year, said Lyndon Cormack, one of three brothers who co-founded Herschel in 2009.But it’s not dependent on it, he said, noting backpacks have become more “like an every-day purchase” as people increasingly flock to urban centres, live in smaller spaces, rely on public transit and commute using methods other than cars.Both brands saw an upsurge in demand that’s led them to open retail stores and plan domestic and international expansions.“I think that a retail store still hands down does it better than anything in the world in relation to conveying a brand’s purpose and message,” Cormack said.Herschel’sfirst shop is a logical step as the company previously only sold its goods online and through other retailers, like department stores, he said.In the roughly 5,000-square-foot space, the brand can present all its products to consumers rather than a small selection curated by another retailer, like the Hudson’s Bay Co., Cormack explained.Already, more stores are in the works, though Cormack said there’s no specific timeline for future openings.The company is eyeing a few spaces in New York City and London, England, at the moment. Within Canada, it definitely makes sense to eventually look at Toronto, he said.Matt & Nat already operates six locations, including an outlet shop outside of Montreal. It will soon open another discount store near Toronto, said Kohil, and plans to grow its presence to up to 15 stores in Canada and abroad next year. International locations will include the United States, England and the Netherlands, he said.He opened the chain’s first store more than two years ago “to elevate the brand,” he said.But the rucksack companies’ expansions aren’t just into real estate. Both are evolving into so-called lifestyle brands.Matt & Nat branched out beyond handbags and wallets by introducing shoes in the spring of 2016. It now also sells sunglasses and candles.Meanwhile, less than 50 per cent of Herschel’s sales come from backpacks, said Cormack. The company also makes wallets, laptop sleeves and luggage. It expanded into apparel with packable windbreakers and plans to add other diverse categories into its mix in the future.Herschel appears to be following a similar trajectory to another Canadian retailer: Canada Goose. The luxury winter jacket company started as an e-commerce business, then opened its own stores at home and eventually abroad before holding an initial public offering.Cormack doesn’t deny Herschel could eventually go public, but said the company is certainly not looking at an IPO in the near future.Follow @AleksSagan on TwitterCompanies in this story: (TSX: GOOS) (TSX:HBC)last_img read more

Denmark Deports Said Mansour Stripped of Citizenship to Morocco

Rabat – Denmark has deported Said Mansour, convicted of incitement to terrorism and formerly a dual Moroccan-Danish citizen, to Morocco.According to Danish media, Mansour arrived in Casablanca yesterday night, aboard Royal Air Maroc flight 222 from Copenhagen. Danish authorities handed him into Moroccan custody.Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen tweeted that he was “very satisfied” with Mansour’s deportation: “Said Mansour has been handed over to the Moroccan authorities. A final end to a pertinent effort to carry out the Danish Supreme Court’s ruling to deport him in 2016…. It sends a clear message that criminal foreigners, who so obviously act against the Danish values and promote terrorism, do not belong in Denmark.” Said Mansour er netop overdraget til de marokkanske myndigheder. Et endeligt punktum for en ihærdig indsats for at gennemføre Højesterets udvisningsdom fra 2016. Jeg er meget tilfreds med et klart signal om, at kriminelle udlændinge, som fremmer terror, ikke hører til i DK #dkpol— Lars Løkke Rasmussen (@larsloekke) January 4, 2019Rasmussen had talked to Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita in December about Mansour’s deportation, according to Danish news outlet Horsens Folkeblad.‘Justice has been served’Danish immigration minister Inger Stojberg was in Morocco this week on a secret trip to make a deal with Morocco on the deportation.In a statement today, Stojberg said, “Justice has been served.” Mansour, she said, was “one of the most fanatic Islamists who we have deported…. He was on the very top of our list.”In an unprecedented 2015 ruling, a Danish court stripped Said Mansour of his Danish citizenship. The court had convicted Mansour of incitement to terrorism for Facebook posts praising Osama bin Laden and encouraging followers to join the al-Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, according to Al Jazeera.Read Also: Imlil Murders: Danish Ambassador Grateful for Morocco’s SupportThe court sentenced Mansour to four years in prison. Mansour appealed the loss of his citizenship, arguing he would face torture in Morocco.The Danish Supreme Court in 2016 ruled against Mansour, and the Danish government has since been trying to deport him.Stojberg today asserted the deportation deal “is completely in order concerning the obligations we have to abide by the international human rights of Said Mansour.” The remarks imply Denmark received promises from Morocco that Mansour would not be physically harmed, tortured, or executed.On December 17, 2018, Danish tourist Louisa Vesterager Jespersen was found murdered with a Norwegian tourist near Imlil, in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. Morocco has arrested 23 suspects in the case and connected it to terrorism.The Imlil murders may have expedited Denmark’s efforts to deport Said Mansour.Mansour was the first Danish citizen to lose his citizenship and be deported. In 2007, Mansour received a separate terror conviction and spent 3.5 years in prison in Denmark.Born in Morocco, Mansour has lived in Denmark since 1983, earning citizenship in 1988. He has four children with a Danish ex-wife and grandchildren living in Denmark.Morocco does not have an extradition agreement with Denmark. According to a Norwegian source, many Norwegian and Danish criminals come to Morocco to avoid extradition. read more

Annan stresses need for security following latest attack on UN premises in

“We will go forward, but of course if it continues to deteriorate then our operations will be handicapped considerably,” Mr. Annan said when asked by journalists about the effect of the attack, in which a suicide car bomber blew himself up, killing an Iraqi security guard and wounding 19 others just over a month after a massive blast killed 22 people, including top envoy Sergio Vieira de Mello. After that attack, on 19 August, the UN sharply reduced the number of its international personnel in Baghdad.Asked on arrival at UN Headquarters in New York whether the UN would be reconsidering its operations in Iraq, Mr. Annan replied: “We are assessing the situation. There is a meeting taking place right now, reviewing the situation in light of what has happened, and we will decide as we move forward what our posture should be.”As for what it would take from a security perspective for the UN to send back in the staff it had withdrawn, he said: “I think there are two issues: obviously there are discussions about a second resolution which may affect the UN mandate and the role of the UN, and we would obviously need to know what that new role will be for us to determine how we organize ourselves to tackle that.”And of course there is the security issue. We need a secure environment to be able to operate, and we have been assessing the situation on a daily basis to determine if there are improvements in the situation,” he added.A statement issued later Monday by Mr. Annan’s spokesman said: “The Secretary-General condemns in the strongest possible terms today’s suicide bombing in the car park of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad.”Voicing sadness at the casualties, which included injured Iraqi UN staff as well as a number of Iraqi police, the statement added: “The Secretary-General is dismayed that the United Nations in Iraq has once again been the target of an act of terror. He remains greatly concerned about the deteriorating security situation in Iraq.”Mr. Annan also commended the Iraqi police, “whose prompt action averted another major disaster,” the statement said.According to a UN spokesman, the incident occurred shortly after 8 a.m. local time in Baghdad. A vehicle was stopped at an Iraqi police checkpoint located at the entrance of the parking lot used by UN national staff who work in the Canal Hotel compound.As the car was being inspected, the lone occupant detonated explosives, killing himself and an Iraqi police officer. There was no damage to the Canal Hotel as the explosion took place about 300 metres from the working areas of the UN offices. read more

Atheists denied by government

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Atheists accuse the Brumby government of “ideological bigotry” for refusing to fund the association’s international conference in Melbourne, while giving $2 million to a religious conference. The Parliament of the World’s Religions which starts on December 3 at the new Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre also secured $2 million from the Federal Government and $500,000 from the Melbourne City Council. Voula Papas from The Atheist Foundation of Australia (AFA), talking to Neos Kosmos English Edition (NKEE), says the Foundation approached all three levels of government for a total of $270,000 for its conference, to be held at the same venue early next year, but has received no funding. Government spokesman Luke Enright was reported in The Age as saying: “The decision not to fund this event has nothing to do with religious ideology – the convention just doesn’t meet the criteria required to receive government funding”. Criteria include that the event has at least 1000 delegates and has not already been booked for Melbourne. Ms Papas refuted the government’s claim: “We are expecting over 2,000 attendees at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, “and we are only asking for $150.000 from the Victorian Government.” She emphasised: “If the refusal was not ideological, then what were the grounds for the denial of assistance other than the weak justification the government has offered.” “We are bringing millions of dollars into Victoria, enhancing the reputation of the state and promoting the use of reason,” Ms Papas said. “I think the world needs us more than the divisiveness of religion” she added. The event “an extremely expensive exercise” pointed out Ms Papas which will include thinkers such as best selling author and humanist thinker, Richard Dawkins, Australian philosopher Peter Singer, author Taslima Nasrin, science commentator Robyn Williams and radio broadcaster Phillip Adams among a host of international academics and intellectuals. Ms Papas highlighted that all people and associations should have access to funding, saying “people of all faiths and no faith should be outraged by this kind of discrimination.” “If we wish to be real here, the churches of all varieties are amongst the richest institutions on the planet. Atheist organisations do not receive any of the financial breaks that religions take for granted.”last_img read more
