first_imgBSP president and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Sunday said that her party would corner the UPA government in Parliament on the issue of Land Acquisition Act.”The Congress ruled the country for over 50 years and has not done anything for the welfare of the people, specially dalits. It even failed to review the archaic Land Acquisition Act and the BSP will raise this issue vociferously in the coming monsoon session of Parliament,” Mayawati said at a convention of BSP workers from Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Orissa.Taking a dig at Congress for backing the farmers’ protest at Bhatta Parsaul against the land acquisition, she said the Congress did not do anything all these years to replace the old Land Acquisition Act, though farmers were opposed to it.The BSP supremo also said that Congress had failed to do anything on bringing back black money in foreign banks. If this money was reclaimed, it would end the poverty of 50 per cent of the people living below poverty line, she said.She blamed Congress’ economic policies for the backwardness of the people and alleged that its policies were intended to benefit the industrialists close to the party.Mayawati said that her own party was run with donations only from common people, and therefore the BSP government’s policies only aimed at the welfare of the common people.BSP had a fair chance of becoming an alternative to the Congress and BJP in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Orissa, she asserted.advertisementShe also said that BSP would organise nationwide protests against the hike in the petrol prices.- With PTI inputsFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

first_imgBy Aditi KhannaLondon, Dec 13 (PTI)�In a break from royal tradition, Prince Harrys fiancee Meghan Markle has been invited to spend Christmas with the royal family which will be hosted by Queen Elizabeth II at her Sandringham estate, an official said today.Kensington Palace confirmed that the American actress, officially confirmed as a new princess-to-be when Harry announced his engagement to her last month, has been invited for the royal festivities which take place in Norfolk, East Anglia region of England, every year.The 36-year-old Suits star will become the first unmarried partner of a royal to attend the traditional celebrations alongside Harry, the 91-year-old Queens grandson and fifth in line to the British throne.Harry, 32, will accompany his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton alongside Markle to Sandringham.”You can expect to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms Markle at Sandringham on Christmas Day,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson said.Royal partners have until now had to wait until they were officially married before being invited to spend Christmas with the Queen and the rest of the family at Sandringham.Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was not invited to join Prince William in 2010 despite announcing their engagement a month before.England rugby legend Mike Tindall was also not invited during his engagement to Princess Annes daughter and the Queens grand daughter Zara Phillips, in 2010.According to UK media reports, a pre-wedding Christmas invitation signals how fully Markle has been welcomed into the royal family after her 16-month romance with Prince Harry.advertisementThey are expected to join the Queen from Christmas Eve until Boxing Day, the day after Christmas, before holidaying abroad for the New Year.They are also planning to join�Markles mother Doria Ragland in California for part of the time.It is thought the couple may stay with William and Kate and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte at their family home of Anmer Hall on the Sandringham estate.The royal family traditionally gathers on Christmas Eve for tea with the Queen, before the younger members are encouraged to put the finishing touches to the Christmas tree in the white drawing room.Later, the Queens guests exchange gifts before a formal black-tie dinner.On Christmas morning, after a full English breakfast, the royal family attend St Mary Magdalene Church on the estate and greet well-wishers before returning to Sandringham House for Christmas lunch.Guests then gather to watch the Queens Christmas broadcast to the rest of the country at 3 pm (local time), which this year is expected to see her offer congratulations to Harry and his future bride.On Boxing Day, guests traditionally take part in a pheasant shoot on the 20,000-acre estate. Markle, who is thought to be opposed to blood sports, is unlikely to join in.Prince Harry and Markles engagement was announced on November 27, when it was revealed that the royal had proposed to his girlfriend earlier in the month.The couple are due to get married at St Georges Chapel in Windsor Castle in May next year.Harrys father Prince Charles married his second wife Camilla Parker Bowles at the same chapel.

Oladipo shot 8-for-21 and the teams combined for 51 turnovers.Minnesota’s Gorgui Dieng of Senegal finished with 14 points and Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo of Greece had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the World. He’s in the dunk contest along with LaVine, Oladipo and Plumlee.Utah’s Trey Burke scored 17 points for the U.S. and Plumlee had 13 points and nine rebounds.(BRIAN MAHONEY, AP Basketball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgShare this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Industry, Supply Chain PRODUCT MANAGEMENT : One aspect is to identify all uses for your product by monitoring usage and understanding the data gathered through the monitoring. Using the data, you can identify opportunities to expand into new markets and uncover new opportunities for products or features. Using software updates, you can create new offerings without having to create new physical devices. It’s all about the ability to adapt to new customer demands and wants as well as a changing competitive landscape. PACKAGING/DELIVERY : You will need to consider how each unit will be sold and delivered to customers. How will each feature be bought? How will they be delivered (e.g., email, website, cloud, or other). All this must be decided before going to market. Once you have considered the three elements to licensing, you need to find a strategy to enforce them, because without one all your planning and strategizing will be for naught. The three main options to enforce your licensing are hardware, software, or the cloud. Each option requires careful planning and execution before implementation. Each solution will have a unique way to implement but the most common are through software wrappers and/or code changes.There are specific advantages and disadvantages to each enforcement method:Cloud – Cloud licensing, as the name implies, typically uses a centralized server on the cloud to create, track, and enforce licensing created by the vendor. Since the license is on the cloud, each device must be connected to the Internet in order to check and validate parameters. This can be a problem for some systems because they are in remote or secure locations with restricted or no Internet connectivity. Since the devices are always connected to the Internet, cloud licensing systems usually come with features to allow real time visibility and data collection on the usage.Software – Software licensing uses licensing files and applications placed directly on the embedded system to enforce the vendors scheme. The software for licensing can be shipped already loaded on the system or added after installation. Because all licensing information is stored within the files or licensing application, Internet connectivity is not required. Unlike the cloud options, usage and data statistics will not be real time. Updating software licenses typically requires new license files, which can be transmitted through email, file sharing servers, or other methods.Hardware – Hardware licensing uses external hardware devices, like dongles or security chips, to implement and control licensing. Similarly to software, the hardware can be shipped already embedded in the system or separately. Hardware security dongles can be used to operate the software as a key. With all licensing parameters contained in the external hardware, Internet connectivity is not required. Most external hardware systems can be updated remotely, but usually require the end user to take some action during the update process. The physical devices adds an additional layer of security and portability. Should the system go down, transferring the license can be as easy as plugging the USB dongle into the new system.Figure 1. Example of a small form factor security dongle plugged into USB port. (Source: KEYLOK) The days of selling a device for a large upfront fee with unlimited access and features are long gone. Now the hardware is sold and the embedded system to run the device is licensed, generating recurring revenue. It is imperative to plan, implement, and execute a well thought out licensing strategy as to not leave potential revenue streams on the table and to stay competitive in the rapidly changing embedded system landscape.Tim Regas is a product expert and general manager at KEYLOK. With over 35 years of experience, KEYLOK helps software developers license and secure software using hardware security dongles. PRICING : It starts with the manufacturing cost of the hardware then the additional cost of each feature or feature set. Embedded system licensing means you are not forced into pricing for your whole software package; you can create a pricing strategy for individual features. This allows for greater pricing flexibility ultimately increasing price competitiveness.center_img Continue Reading Previous Kithara: Real Time for 40 Gigabit EthernetNext Cervoz: industrial wide-temperature 3D NAND TLC products Embedded system licensing is the combination of hardware and software into a single offering, converting traditional hardware vendors into innovative software vendors. This enables manufacturers of hardware to position products as “all-in-one” through software that enhances a machine’s features while giving consumers more flexibility.Manufacturers can offer a base product and grant customers access to desired/purchased features through simple licensing updates. With fewer features included in the base product, the entry-level cost to consumers is reduced, often increasing demand. This also gives customers the ability to access more features as their needs evolve, generating more lucrative long-term relationships.Why? Let’s look at some of the benefits to embedded system licensing:Segmentation – Successful system manufacturers have employed segmentation strategies to focus on specific market segments. By reducing the number of product features into smaller product sets, you’re able to offer a more cost-effective solution leading to greater market penetration.Revenue – Here’s an obvious one: Grow your bottom line by increasing market penetration with more cost-effective solutions.Savings – Reduce the number of physical embedded systems you manufacture and increase profits by offering different “products” on the same hardware controlled by embedded system licensing. This is an easy way for small manufacturers to grow their product offering without having to increase capacity.Security – Embedded licensing helps protects against intellectual property theft, unlicensed use, reverse engineering, tampering, and unauthorized distribution– preventing grey market manufacturing where your software is used to run a counterfeit piece of hardware.Customization – Offering customized purchasing options allows customers to purchase only what they need on a per-feature, per-use, or by time frame of use, ultimately leading to wider product appeal.Manageability – Embedded licensing reduces the human capital required to track and monitor usage and licensing. Features can automatically be added or turned off as purchases are made or licenses expire.Satisfaction – Customers save by purchasing only what they need and nothing more, increasing their satisfactionSupport – With specific product groups you are able to create tailored support teams to each product. Focused support teams tend to improve support times and resolve customer issues more quickly.Versatility – Another advantage to embedded licensing is allowing manufacturers to quickly adapt to changes in the competitive landscape, by changing feature sets or supporting new operating systems.Why not? Now that you’ve read some reasons for why you would include Embedded System Licensing, let’s explore some situations where you would not need a licensing system.Price – If your embedded system is inexpensive to manufacture and has a relatively low selling price, it may not make sense to spend resources on a licensing system. The ultimate goal with licensing systems is not to create an impenetrable fortress; it is to make it more expensive to steal than it would be to purchase.Honor System  – There is still a place for the old fashioned honor system. If you maintain close relationships, and completely trust your customers, there may not be a need for a licensing system.Development Restrictions – Some embedded systems are so niche that there is not a suitable off-the shelf-licensing system. While most licensing companies will work to support your system, they may require payment making the cost exceed the benefit of enforced licensing.How If the “why’s” outweigh the “why-not’s” for your situation, the next question is how to how to get started. There are three key elements to a successful embedded system licensing strategy: Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must Register or Login to post a comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

first_imgAntonio Conte has promoted Ethan Ampadu, the teenager signed from Exeter City over the summer, to his senior squad for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup third-round tie against Nottingham Forest, with Chelsea set to make a host of changes for the game at Stamford Bridge.The Premier League champions are expected to field an all-Belgian front line of Eden Hazard, Michy Batshuayi and Charly Musonda, a 20-year-old forward whose previous involvement has been limited to cameos from the bench in the Community Shield and in the opening-day loss against Burnley. Dujon Sterling, a two-times FA Youth Cup winner, may also be in the squad, with Ampadu likely to start among the substitutes. Conte: Hazard will start match against Nottingham Forest – video Share via Email Read more Carabao Cup Share on Pinterest Eden Hazard cameo underlines Chelsea’s need for extra source of flair Barney Ronay at Stamford Bridge Sterling and Ampadu have trained with Conte’s first-team squad. “Ampadu is a young player but I think he has good quality,” said the Chelsea head coach. “He has good prospects to become a Chelsea player. He’s strong physically, [has] good technique and personality. Yes, I think we have to continue to work with him and to try and improve him, to bring him to the next step. But for sure he has good prospects at Chelsea and will be in the squad [against Forest].”Ampadu had been capped by England at under-16 level, is eligible to play for Ghana and the Republic of Ireland and has since gained international recognition with Wales, through his mother, in their under-17s and under-19s. He was named in Chris Coleman’s training squad for the senior side’s World Cup qualifier in Serbia last summer. The Exeter manager, Paul Tisdale, revealed at the time that the player was able to join up with the squad only because it was half-term.Conte denied senior international recognition at such a young age had heaped pressure on the player, who turned 17 last week. “You must be proud of this [achievement],” he said. “But, for sure, he has to work a lot to deserve another call-up to the national team. We must be pleased because this player is a Chelsea player and now it’s important to work very well with him and try and improve his weaknesses. Yes, but he’s a young player. I’m sure he’s a good prospect for Chelsea.”Hazard will make his first start of the season having recovered from ankle surgery undergone over the summer, with Andreas Christensen and Willy Caballero also expected to feature. Kenedy, whose Chelsea career appeared to be over when he was sent home in disgrace from the pre-season tour of China and Singapore after making a series of inappropriate posts on social media, will start at left wing-back. Chelsea apologised for the player’s posts, with the Football Association subsequently handing Kenedy a formal warning.However, Chelsea’s inability to secure a new left-sided defender meant Kenedy’s proposed loan move to Newcastle was cancelled, and the player has another opportunity to show he deserves a future at Stamford Bridge. “I think he knows very well what happened in China,” Conte said. “For sure, he made a mistake. But I think that everyone in their life can make a mistake. Now he’s focused, he’s working very well, he understood his mistake. Now he’s ready. He’s ready to play and to show he deserves a space for the future.“With Musonda we are talking about a really good prospect. Charly, you can see very clearly, his talent. Now it’s important he works very well, trying to adapt himself to this league because this league is not simple. It’s a physical league. He’s a bit thin, but he’s working a lot to improve his strength and to be prepared to make a big impact in this league. I trust Charly, but it’s important he gives a good answer when the chance to play arrives.”Arsenal’s Welbeck out for weeksArsène Wenger says that Danny Welbeck will be out until the middle of October, at least, with the groin injury that forced him off against Chelsea on Sunday. The Arsenal manager and the striker are waiting for the results of a scan to find out a more precise timescale.Welbeck collapsed in the 73rd minute of the 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge and after the game, Wenger said that the injury did not look to be “an easy one”. But Welbeck, whose time at Arsenal has been blighted by fitness issues, did feel the pain ease a little on Sunday night, which has been interpreted as a positive sign.Francis Coquelin, who injured a hamstring in the 3-0 home win over Bournemouth on the Saturday before last, is also out until after the upcoming international break – from which the Premier League clubs return on the weekend of 14-15 October.Wenger said that Calum Chambers, who has had a groin problem, would be involved for the first time this season in the Carabao Cup tie against Doncaster Rovers at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night. Mesut Özil, who missed the Chelsea game with a slight knee injury, will not feature but he has returned to training.“Danny has a scan – we don’t know how bad his groin injury is but he will certainly be out until the international break,” Wenger said. “Coquelin as well. Mathieu Debuchy is coming back slowly and he won’t play against Doncaster.“Mesut is training again but no [he will not feature against Doncaster]. He has a little inflammation of his knee. Chambers will be involved and so will Jack Wilshere. The squad will be a mix – a similar team to the one that played against Cologne [in the Europa League.]” Topics The versatile defender or defensive midfielder became Exeter’s youngest player at 15 years, 10 months and 26 days in August 2016 and having been offered a scholarship contract at St James Park, had attracted interest from Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City. Chelsea persuaded him to join, despite the fact his father, Kwame, is a coach at Arsenal’s academy, though a compensation fee has yet to be settled with the League Two side. Exeter had hoped to secure £3m for their academy graduate, with a tribunal likely to have to settle the final amount. newscenter_img Reuse this content Share on LinkedIn Chelsea Share on Twitter Antonio Conte Share on Facebook Share on Messenger This video has been removed.

The Trojans defeated the Ducks 35-10. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)USC landed one of the top quarterback recruits in the country this year in five-star player J.T. Daniels Daniels is a 6-foot-2, 205-pound player from Santa Ana, California who had offers from 18 different schools.If there was any doubt that Daniels was happy he chose USC, that’s been all but erased. Daniels apparently got a massive Trojans tattoo on his leg. He appears to be all-in on his school heading into his freshman season with the team.The tattoo takes up basically the entire lower half of his leg. The main attraction is the Tommy Trojan portion.The photo was posted on Instagram by Shotgun Spratling. He says it’s “fresh ink” – meaning it’s a brand new tattoo.Daniels, as a recruit, had offers from a number of other big-time schools, including Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, LSU and Miami. 247 Sports had him ranked as the sixth-best player in the country for the 2018 class.With Sam Darnold moving on to the NFL, Daniels actually has a shot at becoming the team’s starting quarterback his freshman year. The season starts in less than a month.A year ago, the Trojans finished with an 11-3 record and a Pac-12 title. They open up against UNLV on September 1 this year.last_img read more

The Montreal-based aircraft manufacturer faces a total tariff of almost 300 per cent when combined with last week’s almost 220 per cent countervailing duties. The duties involve an ongoing dispute with Boeing, which has accused Bombardier of getting unfair subsidies.———COURT GREEN LIGHTS DESTRUCTION OF RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL RECORDS: The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that records detailing the abuse of former residential school students can eventually be destroyed.

Beaverhouse chief Marcia Brown Martel made the comments as the federal government announced $750 million in compensation. Starting in the 1960s, Indigenous children were taken from their homes and placed with non-Indigenous families because officials thought they would get better care.———ECONOMY CONTINUES TO CREATE JOBS: Canada’s jobless rate remained at a nine year low of 6.2 per cent last month after Canada say a net increase of 10,000 new jobs. The rise in full-time work more than offset a drop of part-time jobs, but last month’s net job gain was driven by growth in public-sector employment.

They say prosecutors reached out to Canadian authorities and the case was brought to the attention of the RCMP, who worked with local police to identify the girls.———MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO THROWING AN OBJECT AT QUEBEC PREMIER: A man who threw something at Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard has pleaded guilty to assault. The incident involving Esteban Torres occurred in 2016 at a vigil for victims of the Orlando massacre. The object in question was never recovered but Torres said at the time it was a ball of paper.———ASSISTED DEATHS ACCOUNT FOR ONE PER CENT OF CANADIAN DEATHS: The federal government says there were nearly 1,200 medically assisted deaths in the first six months of this year.

It’s a 10-point drop since June, according to a poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
