Without that [outflow] I think there would’ve been a different story.“I don’t think anything changes in terms of the long-term story for Man Group.”The company, which started as a sugar broker in 1783, said it held a regulatory capital surplus of around $300m and over $1.8bn in cash at the end of last year.Chief executive Peter Clarke said: “With strong performance and a clear marketing focus for new and existing investment ideas, there is significant momentum for the business in the year ahead.” More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comcenter_img whatsapp whatsapp Thursday 20 January 2011 8:17 pm Man suffers after £700m withdrawal Tags: NULLlast_img read more

What is 5G? The next generation of wireless, explained

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By Jan Rabaey, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of California, Berkeley and first published on theconversation.com.Every decade or so, the wireless industry rolls out a new cellular communications standard that can transmit more data more quickly. Already under development is the next round, called “5G” because it’s the fifth major generation of these standards for encoding and transmitting data over radio waves.The first generation, retroactively called 1G, was a fully analog system for transmitting voice. In contrast, 2G phones transmitted voice and data digitally. Subsequent generations, 3G in 2000 and 4G in 2010, made technical improvements that brought data rates up from 200 kilobits per second to hundreds of megabits per second. With 2020 approaching, 5G is expected to transmit 1 gigabit per second – and perhaps as many as 10.Being able to send and receive that much data so quickly open new opportunities for augmented and virtual reality systems, as well as automation.For instance, self-driving cars could communicate with each other, road signs, traffic signals, guard rails and other elements human drivers simply see. That would require an additional technical leap – reducing what is called “latency,” or the delay between when a signal is sent and when it’s received, to 1 millisecond. (If a network’s data rate is how wide a garden hose is, latency is how long it takes from the moment the spigot is turned on until water comes out the end.)Achieving high data rates with low latency requires a number of technical changes, including sending data using higher radio frequencies and designing arrays of antennas to reduce interference between many devices all communicating at the same time. Together these add up to a 5G network with many more base stations – each of which is physically smaller than a current cellular tower and placed much more closely together. 5G base stations could be placed every 250 meters, rather than the every 1 to 5 km needed for 4G.In addition, 5G systems offer the possibility of providing reliable connections to massive numbers of wireless devices simultaneously. This could enable a huge expansion of the number of “internet of things” devices in use, monitoring nutrients in the soil for farmers, package locations for shipping companies and vital signs for hospital patients, for instance.Early 5G networks are being rolled out now in some U.S. cities. The Tokyo Olympics in 2020 are supposed to present the very first showcase of the full range of what 5G technology can offer. Between now and then – and even beyond – companies rolling out 5G networks will deploy a new technology while it’s still evolving, as they did with earlier generations.

first_imgWednesday Dec 26, 2012 Nick Evans and Jonathan Davies pick their British & Irish Lions starting XV As this year comes to a close we look towards 2013, which is set to be one of the most significant chapters yet in the history of the British & Irish Lions, as they take on the Wallabies in search of their first series win since 1997. Over the course of the next six months the Lions XV will be one of the most talked about and closely scrutinised selections in world rugby. With that in mind, today we look at two recent HSBC Ambassador videos that feature Nick Evans and Jonathan Davies making their picks.Harlequins and former New Zealand flyhalf Nick Evans chose his starting XV for the first Test a few weeks back, and also made a prediction for the series result.

Crop Tour Finds Over 173 Bushel Indiana Corn

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Aug 23, 2016 Crop Tour Finds Over 173 Bushel Indiana Corn Facebook Twitter SHARE Crop tour 2nd day updateThe further west the better the corn yields will likely be. That’s the summation from the eastern leg of the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour after two days were completed, including a trip all the way through Indiana. The Hoosier yields bettered Monday’s findings in Ohio, and as Ty Higgins reports from the tour for HAT, western Indiana and eastern Illinois yields have been the best.“We saw some really good corn throughout Indiana, talking about Tipton, Clinton, Tippecanoe, Warren and Benton Counties, and we had an average in those counties of 182.4 bushels per acre. The highest was in Warren County at 228 and the low end yield at 129 in Clinton County. As we crossed over into Illinois corn yields did get a little bit better, ranging from a 151 to a 235 right across the border in Vermillion County, Illinois.”As day two closed the final number for all of Indiana was announced at 173.42 bushels to the acre for corn. Kellie Bassett, a DuPont Pioneer Field Agronomist for the central part of Illinois, said there are very few things to get in the way of those big yields between now and harvest time.Soybeans are measured by the number of pods in a 3 foot by 3 foot square. The 2nd day Indiana average was 1,166 pods.“We crossed into Illinois and had some good pod counts, some great pod counts, and one not so good. The range was from 630 pods in a 3×3 foot square to 2,142. Variation definitely there in the soybeans as we got into Illinois.”The final soybean number for Indiana was 1178.41 pods of soybeans in a 3 foot by 3 foot square.Pro Farmer Crop Tour scouts have found corn fields with ears that had poor pollination and ears that pollinated but are now beginning to “tip-back.” Soybeans may be the saving grace for some farmers in the eastern Corn Belt.Day 3 of the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour goes from Bloomington, Illinois to Iowa City, Iowa on Wednesday.You can ride right along with the scouts all this week by following the tour online at www.ProFarmer.com.

Silver linings in a pandemic

Fine Arts Professor Lily Sloan has discovered a new interest in online fitness videos that help her work from home. “I really need challenging physical exercise in the morning in order to function my best throughout the day,” she said.Sloan said that she hopes more people will come out of the pandemic focusing more on well-being and not consumption. TCU Chancellor Victor Boschini is finding his silver lining through family. “I think one of the great things about this is that it is having us appreciate family more now than we ever did,” Boschini said. “I think it is making us more mindful of our brother and sister.”Boschini hopes that during this pandemic people can be thankful for family and friends and more aware of the world around them.Christine Bowman, the mother of a TCU student and dean of admission at Southwestern University, echoed Boschini. “As a society, I feel like we have been operating on an exhausting schedule for a while,” she said. “I hope this teaches us to value what is important.” Christine Bowman, on the right, is enjoying some food with her daughter, Savannah Bowman. Photo by Savannah BowmanBowman said that she has reset her sleep patterns and has enjoyed working outside on the nice days. “I’ve finished a book and am excited to start another,” she said. “I have ten on my nightstand, and I’ve also binge-watched a few shows.” A mother of two college students, Bowman is trying to make the most of the opportunity to spend time with them. She and her daughter said that they have enjoyed cooking and baking together. “We have done lots of cooking together, and we have finally learned how to bake our own bread, something I have wanted to do for years,” Bowman said.As some families learn new recipes and fitness exercises, others are reflecting on how they have taken up other hobbies. “I used to go out to eat or go to the mall all the time to do something fun, but being stuck inside has forced me to find other hobbies,” junior criminal justice and psychology double major Ashley Travis said. “I have learned that I took a lot of things for granted before this lockdown happened.” Travis said she will now focus more on the good things in her life and be thankful for the time with her friends and family. When this pandemic is over, she hopes to look at things with more positivity. Trent Hudson, a marketing major from Carmel, California, believes this pandemic has allowed him to focus more on himself. “This pandemic has allowed me to ensure that I continue to better myself in every aspect of my life,” Hudson said. “I have been reading more, finding creative ways to workout, reconnecting with old and new friends and have taken time for myself, which is hard to do during a busy semester.”As many are looking at the silver linings, Boschini still can’t wait for the students to return to campus. “I miss the students on campus; the campus is lonely without them,” he said. last_img read more

Threatened Mexican journalist not allowed to enter United States

The undersigned view this decision as an attempt to silence Mendez and prevent him from telling his story to the American people. RSF_en Receive email alerts United StatesMexicoAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Organized crimeCorruptionViolence United StatesMexicoAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Organized crimeCorruptionViolence Despite presenting a detailed list of high-level meetings and events that Mexican journalist Martin Mendez Pineda was scheduled to attend this week in Washington, DC, United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) denied Mendez’ request to enter the country on Sunday, September 10.“I am angry and disappointed that I was not able to attend the events with everyone in Washington D.C. this week,” Mendez told RSF. “I was very much looking forward to sharing my experiences as a journalist in Mexico and as someone whose threat to safety has been ignored by the United States Immigration officials. I lost the only job I was able to find in Mexico, while remaining in hiding, in order to have the opportunity to attend these events, which would’ve allowed me to discuss the dangers journalists face throughout the world and which I currently face in Mexico right now.”Mendez, a former reporter for Novedades Acapulco in Guerrero, Mexico, where he received threats after writing a story about local police violence, had attempted to seek asylum in the US in the spring of 2017 without success. He filed a legal application at the US border on February 5, but was immediately taken into detention by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Despite passing his credible fear interview on March 1, he was twice denied a request for parole pending his asylum determination and remained in detention at various ICE facilities for more than three months. Due to the deplorable conditions of his detention and concerns for his health, Mendez ultimately decided to withdraw his asylum request and return to Mexico, though he remains in hiding to this day.RSF had been working with the Newseum Institute and Digital Content Next to include Mendez in a Wednesday panel discussion covering what it’s like for reporters to do their job in an increasingly threatening environment. RSF had also worked with Carlos Spector, an immigration attorney in El Paso, on requesting entry for Mendez into the country for the Newseum event, several other high profile meetings with the US Congress, the US Department of State, as well as a panel discussion on Mexico’s dangers for journalists at the National Press Club Monday night.“We are saddened and quite frankly upset that Martin was not able to be with us in person for the meetings and events we had arranged for him this week,” said Margaux Ewen, Advocacy and Communications Director for RSF’s North America bureau. “Martin’s story is a harrowing one, and he most certainly deserved to tell it in person to those who could potentially offer a solution. The American people also deserve to know what has happened to him for shedding light on police violence and corruption in Mexico. Just across the US’ southern border lies one of the deadliest countries for journalists in the world, and what happens there should interest America as much as anything that’s happening at home.” “The case of Martin Mendez illustrates how far the United States has fallen from its once-high post as a beacon of press freedom,” said Jeffrey Ballou, President of the National Press Club. This reporter did everything by the book — obtaining a US attorney, entering the country legally and applying for asylum as he did so. Despite that, and despite the fact that US immigration authorities found he had a “credible fear” of returning to Mexico, he has been treated as a criminal by the country that should have sheltered him. Refusing to allow him to speak about his case at the National Press Club is the latest insult — not only to Martin, but to all working journalists. It also suggests immigration authorities are embarrassed to have this discussed. They should be.”“Threats to journalists worldwide, and particularly today in Mexico, need to be disclosed, documented and discussed in democratic societies,” said Gene Policinski, chief operating officer of the Newseum Institute. “Refusing entry to the U.S. for a limited number of days to reporter Martin Mendez – who faces death threats in Mexico – to participate in a program at the Newseum on the dangers to journalists worldwide is counter-productive to alerting the public to those dangers, and sends the wrong message to those repressive and criminal forces who would harass, threaten, injure or kill those journalists who bravely speak truth to power.” Mexico is the western hemisphere’s most dangerous country for journalists. More than 100 journalists have been killed in Mexico since 2000, and 20 have disappeared. So far in 2017, at least 8 journalists have been murdered in connection with their work. Due to a climate of impunity in the country, RSF has only been able to confirm 4 of those killed were in direct relation to their work as journalists. Mexico is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. The United States is ranked 43rd.
