VIDEO: Grenadian singer Mr. Killa runs with million dollar Soca Monarch…

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – Grenadian artiste, Hollis ‘Mr. Killa’ Mapp, whose tune “Run Wid it” has had even the police warning people about committing criminal offences, Friday night won the one million TT dollar Soca Monarch title as the 2019 Carnival celebrations near its climax.Good night for Grenadian artistsIt was a good night for Grenadian artists as they placed win the top three positions in the Power and Groovy sections of the annual Play Whe International Soca Monarch.Last month, police warned party-goers that they could face criminal charges if they continue to follow, very much the lyrics of the song that has literally led to persons virtually picking up anything when the song is being played, including tents, coolers and chairs belonging to others.“Based on that, when the song is being played, we understand that people go into a frenzy. What we are asking party-goers, in your enthusiasm, the song is a nice song and persons are very charged up when that song is playing (but) we are asking party-goers to please be mindful and do not violate the rights of others,” Assistant Superintendent of Police, Wayne Mystar, told reporters.Mapp won from a field of eight contestants, pushing Trinidadian Neil “Iwer” George into second place with his tune “Blessings” with Grenadian Mr. Legz placing third.In the “Groovy” section of the competition, Marvin “Swappi” Daviswon with his tune “Party Start” ahead of St. Lucian Teddyson John, with his tune “Vent” Among John’s supporters was Prime Minister Allen Chastanet who told a television audience the artiste has “done a tremendous job in St. Lucia…and I am really hoping he come sthrough tonight”.Third place went to Grenadian Vaugn with his tune “Trouble in the Morning”.Celebration continues The celebrations continue on Saturday night, with the much-anticipated Panorama finals at the Queen’s Park savannah.Defending champion BpTT Renegades seems tipped to retain their title with “Hookin Meh”, arranged by Duvonne Stewart, having led throughout the preliminary rounds.Earlier this week, one household swept the calypso competitions with Ronaldo London taking home the TT$700,000 Calypso Monach title with his tune “Man’s Imagination”The 21-year-old had won the 2019 Young Kings title last week Thursday.His brother, Rivaldo London, won the 2019 junior calypso monarch while the Extempo Calypso title went to Brian London, the cousin of the Calypso Monarch.Karene Asche placed second and won TT$400,000 with her tune “Loco Broco” highlighting the influx of Venezuelans here, while last year’s calypso monarch Helon Francis placed third and won TT$200,000.The Carnival celebrations will end on Tuesday with the traditional street jump-up and parade of the bands.last_img read more

SkyCross Antenna Technology Enables 4×4 MIMO for LTE and Wi-Fi

first_imgSkyCross has announced that its Dual iMAT™ (Isolated Mode Antenna Technology) and 4X4 MIMO (multiple input multiple output) solutions for LTE and Wi-Fi can maximize the performance of devices equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 smart device processors. SkyCross’s advanced iMAT antennas and solutions have been available since 2014 and are being deployed commercially in more than one million smart devices and are actively tested and validated on several operator networks globally.As markets mature, customers are demanding advanced services and features, reliable performance, prolonged battery life, shrinking device sizes, and low prices. Successfully launched in 2014, SkyCross’s iMAT and 4X4 MIMO technology work in any wireless device including smartphones, handsets, data cards, USB dongles, laptops, personal navigation devices, cameras, gaming devices, and more. By integrating SkyCross’s antenna and RF technologies with Snapdragon’s chipsets, consumers receive higher performance products with more cost effective implementations. Similarly, the augmented performance enables tremendous savings for operators, allowing for better device coverage at cell edge, as well as higher speed downloads at close proximity, which translates into more efficient networks and less capital equipment need.SkyCross’s Dual iMAT™ TechnologyPreviously thought of as unachievable, SkyCross’s Dual iMAT technology allows four antennas to compactly fit into a smartphone, tablet, or ultrabook/PC form factor, while maintaining sufficient isolation to enable 4X4 MIMO. The classic technique of separating antennas spatially (i.e., putting distance between antennas) has prohibited this in the past given the limited size of mobile handsets.SkyCross’s patented iMAT technology applies pattern diversity, allowing designers to locate multiple antennas in close proximity while still achieving the high isolation/low correlation needed for MIMO architectures. SkyCross iMAT technology enables OEMs and ODMs to design multiband 4G LTE MIMO or multi-band Wi-Fi onto a single (or multiple) antenna structure(s). Although the multiple antennas are closely co-located and operate on the same frequency at the same time, iMAT technology eliminates the performance issues associated with mutual coupling and high pattern correlation coefficient from multiple nearby antennas.Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor, provides leading 4G LTE and Wi-Fi technologies for premium tier mobile devices. The new Snapdragon 820 processor addresses unprecedented demand for blazing fast connectivity and seamless services. Devices based on the Snapdragon 820 processor are expected to be available in 1H of 2016.Use Cases Demonstrate Breakthrough Performance PotentialSince its development, technology manufacturers have utilized SkyCross’s iMAT technology for emerging and advanced wireless products and platforms. Within the last 12 months, more than 4 million MIMO devices have shipped, applying SkyCross’ iMAT technology. Further, companies like China Mobile, Softbank, T-Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, Intel and Sprint have tested and integrated SkyCross antenna technologies into their products and networks. Here are some of examples:Intel Lab TestIn August 2015, Intel testing of iMAT technology for Wi-Fi in notebook PC applications demonstrated comparable performance to traditional implementations of spatially separated antennas. Moving to iMAT can enable significant cost savings, more space for new technology in larger form factor PCs, as well as efficient use of space to achieve compact form factors like ultrabooks.Softbank Trial and Field TestIn May 2015, Softbank and Sprint announced Asia and North America’s first successful trials respectively of LTE 4×4 MIMO in higher frequency bands. The results of the technical pilot operation have shown that 4×4 MIMO increased coverage by as much as 15 percent and increased overall system capacity, as much as 50 to 60 percent at cell edge. The results also showed improved throughput performance for 4×4 within building as much as 55 to 73 percent.Deutsche Telekom Trial and Field TestIn February 2014, Deutsche Telekom conducted a field test in the German market using SkyCross’s iMAT RF and antenna technology, achieving 580 Mbps peak speed and ultimate cell edge performance with the new antenna technology on a live LTE network environment.last_img read more

Jimmy and Dee Haslam Confident but ‘a long way to go and a lot of work to do’

first_img Related Topics Berea- Jimmy and Dee Haslam talked during a press conference today before training camp.  Jimmy and Dee were asked if they would say the Browns will make the playoffs as many players have predicted.“We would echo (Head) Coach (Hue) Jackson’s comments. We are excited to see their excitement and their optimism but a long way to go and a lot of work to do,” Jimmy said.Jimmy Haslam talked about being ‘really pumped about the players that are here’ but wasn’t willing to guarantee a playoff birth. It would seem like common knowledge not to guarantee anything after a 0-16 season even with the added talent.Instead of promising playoffs, Dee Haslam said Browns’ fans will see improvement.“I think you can realistically expect progress. That is what we feel like. We have already made a lot of progress. We realistically feel like we will have progress this year.”Although ensuring fans they will see progress, Dee couldn’t describe exactly what kind of progress will be seen, “That is hard to define right now – progress. I think that we are going to see a lot of progress among our players. I really do.”Dee Haslam talked about moving on from losing seasons and praised the fans for sticking with the team, “Our fans have been unbelievably supportive. Cleveland is just the greatest town to be in if you are a football organization. We have great, loyal fans. I really believe that there is a lot of energy. It is a really great team that has been assembled. We really have not thought about the past. We have been looking towards the future. It is pretty easy because the excitement that we have here and the players that we have here, and the coaching staff is really excited.”Dee Haslam acknowledged that the losing has taken a toll on the fan base, “Absolutely, I think you always worry about your fan base. That is one of the things that we talk about a lot is taking care of our fans. I think you worry about your fan base, but this is an unbelievably loyal fan base. The Browns fans are just incredible. We are just kind of overwhelmed with how enthusiastic and loyal they are as a group of people.” Patrick Kennedylast_img read more
