Oppo The latest phone in Oppo’s F series lineup is promising to dazzle you with beautiful photos. And its 48-megapixel rear camera lives up to that promise.That rear camera is paired with a 5-megapixel depth sensor. And together the F11 Pro’s cameras do a great job of capturing images with plenty of detail, letting you zoom right down to the pixels. There’s also a night mode and the phone uses color mapping to identify and reconstruct the colors of a scene, which should help take better looking portrait shots. Oppo says it can even take great low-light portrait shots, a claim I’ve also tested. Oppo’s used AI to improve the phone’s camera features — the company claims it can recognize over 23 types of scenes and is capable of choosing the right settings to get the most out of a picture. Camera aside, the phone is quite the looker. The rear design has a gradient look that’s now a hallmark of Chinese phone makers, and it’s stunning. The pop-out front camera is placed in the middle and features a transparent design inspired by amber, which helps keep the focus on the 6.53-inch display — and Oppo says the screen uses its own memory (RAM) to help reduce power consumption.Oppo’s also designed the phone to make it easier to hold. The F11 Pro has a crescent design on the top and bottom and its rounded edges don’t dig into your palms. This should make it comfortable to hold and play games on. Phones Tags 0 Post a comment Share your voice Following fans’ feedback on previous phones, Oppo has moved the speaker and microphone. The microphone is now in the middle of the phone, making it easier to pick up your voice if you’re playing a game and holding the phone horizontally.Other cool features include fast charging, which Oppo says can get the F11 Pro from 0 to full in just 80 minutes. Factor in the 4,000-mAh battery and the phone seems fit for all-day use. Note that the F11 doesn’t use a Qualcomm chip: It’s powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P70 instead. But I reckon it should hold up well against Qualcomm Snapdragon 660-powered phones.The F11 Pro runs Android 9 Pie, but it uses Oppo’s own ColorOS 6 on top. Unlike Vivo phones, it doesn’t just shoehorn in its own gesture control. It also includes Android P gesture controls, so you can find what works for you. The Smart Sidebar feature brings full-screen multitasking to the F11 Pro. Turn it on by swiping to the left from the right side. You can launch apps from the Smart Sidebar, quickly share recently opened files, start screen recording or snap a screenshot. Oppo’s latest F series phone isn’t a crazy high-end flagship phone, but it’s a solid midrange device. The F11 Pro is expected to hit markets in India first, then China and the rest of Asia pretty soon. But there’s no word on a US, UK or Australia launch. The 4GB RAM with 128GB of storage model will retail for around $285 converted (that’s £215 and AU$400) while the 6GB RAM with 64GB of onboard storage will go for around $355.Quick specsProcessor: MediaTek Helios P70 octa-core Memory: 6GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB onboard storageDisplay: 6.53-inch full-HD+ (2,340×1,080 pixels)Camera: Dual 48-megapixel and 5-megapixel rear, 16-megapixel f/2.0 frontBattery: 4,000-mAh battery with fast charging Oppo
Opinions on Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal’s Railway Budget 2013 may differ from person to person, but on a closer look, he has presented a good budget considering the current financial situation of the Indian Railways and the forthcoming elections next year.In fact, Bansal has taken a few praiseworthy steps towards narrowing down the deficit gap in the struggling Indian Railways without disappointing the common man and at the same time appeasing the industrial sector.Many may questioned if Bansal’s Railway Budget 2013 was too financial discipline and avoided taking bold steps, including hiking passenger fare, keeping in mind next year’s elections and not to disappoint the public who were irked by rail fare hike last month. He is also been criticized for introducing lesser new rail lines compared to previous years.But on a closer look, Bansal has cleverly hiked the passenger fares, though indirectly, and would do so in the future though he abstained from increasing the figure in his budget. The public will indirectly pay more through ticket cancellation, clerkage and tatkal charges. Supplementary charges for super fast trains have also been marginally raised. The cost of travelling on train too may go up as the railway minister hinted a possible annual hike of 5 percent for various kinds of services.The public may also have to pay more in the future depending on the flatuating fuel price as the government is implementing Fuel Adjustment Component (FAC) linked revision for freight tariff from 1st April 2013. The railway minister said that the move could increase the cost of commodities by 4-8 paise per kg but additional revenue to the Railways will be around ₹4,200 crore.Bansal’s Railway Budget has many positive things that his predecesors didn’t think of. The announcement that a loan of ₹3,000 cr taken in 2011-12 has been fully repaid along with interest should come as a welcomed move. He also promised that the Railways will make profit by the end of the financial year.He announced the Indian Railways will set up an exclusive Centralized Training Institute at Secunderabad – Indian Railways Institute of Financial Management (IRIFM), indicating his long-term plan for the Railways.Bansal’s Railway Budget will also please investors, as much modernization projects of the railways will be done through Public-Private Partnership (PPP) route. Target of ₹1000 crore each fixed for Rail Land Development Authority and IR Station Development Corporation to be raised through PPP in 2013-14. Of the planned investment of Rs 63,363 crore for the financial year, ₹6000 crore will be under PPP mode.Many may not be happy for not introducing many new rail lines as expected but several measures announced in the budget like – safety, cleanliness and hygiene, special provision for women passengers and differently abled persons, introduction of Train Protection Warning System on Automatic Signalling Systems, elimination of 10797 level crossings to curb accidents, introduction of Self Propelled Accident Relief Trains, introduction of next-gen e-ticketing system that can handle 7200 tickets per minute as against the present 2000, and several others are necessary and will help the Railways in the long run.Bansal’s Railway Budget 2013 should be considered as a clever one.
Vijay Mallya, son Siddharth MallyaTwitterIndian businessman Vijay Mallya found himself in a terrible situation when he walked out of the Kennington Oval in London after watching India and Australia World Cup match on Sunday.In a video that has been doing the rounds of social media, Mallya can be seen surrounded by a bunch of Indians who couldn’t stop booing the beleaguered businessman for leaving India on March 2, 2016 after defaulting on loans amounting to Rs 9,000 crore.Chants like “Mallya Mera Paisa De”, “Chor Hai Chor Hai” and “Gali Gali Me Shor Hai, Vijay Mallya Chor Hai” resounded in Mallya’s ears as he started walking towards his car after the match. He did turn back and responded to a few people with a “Thank You.” At one point, a shout of “Be a man, apologise to your country” is heard, to which his response is inaudible. However, the viral video divided people on Instagram. While a majority of people said that Vijay Mallyadeserved this kind of treatment wherever he goes, a certain section felt that it was a shameful act by the people to humiliate someone like this.Mallya has repeatedly denied fleeing the country, saying he is ready to pay back the money he owed to the Indian banks. India had in 2017 filed for Mallya’s extradition, which he contested. He is out on bail.A consortium of 13 banks, led by the State Bank of India (SBI), has initiated loan recovery proceedings against him. The proceedings are on before a special court in Mumbai under the Fugitive Economic Offenders Act.The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had also moved the Special Prevention of Money-Laundering Act Court last year to get Mallya declared a “fugitive economic offender” and confiscate his properties, estimated at more than Rs 12,000 crore, making it the first such case of its kind under the new law.Take a look.

Mujibnagar Muktijuddho Smriti Complex (Mujibnagar Memorial). Photo: CollectedThe historic Mujibnagar Day is being observed on Tuesday marking the formation of Bangladesh’s first government that led the war of liberation in 1971.Senior leaders of Awami League assembled at Baidyanathtala, a mango orchard, which was later named Mujibnagar in Meherpur district, on 17 April 1971 to form the provisional government of independent Bangladesh in the absence of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.Millions of freedom-loving people listened to the announcement of the formation of the government through radio.Read more: Deviation makes youth desultoryFollowing the Pakistan occupation forces’ attack on unarmed people on the night of 25 March in 1971, the first government of independent People’s Republic of Bangladesh was formed on 10 April in 1971 comprising elected representatives with Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as its president, while Syed Nazrul Islam vice-president and Tajuddin Ahmad prime minister.“We, the elected representatives of the people of Bangladesh, are honour bound by the mandate given to us by the people of Bangladesh whose will is supreme duly constituted ourselves into a Constituent Assembly, and having held mutual consultations, and in order to ensure for the people of Bangladesh equality, human dignity and social justice, declare and constitute Bangladesh to be sovereign Peoples’ Republic,” read the proclamation of independence made in Mujibnagar on 10 April 1971.On that day, the elected representatives firmly supported and approved the declaration of independence by Bangabandhu on 26 March 1971 and issued a formal proclamation of independence.President Abdul Hamid and prime minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages on the occasion, reports UNB.In his message, Abdul Hamid said, “Independence is the greatest achievement of the Bangali nation. It’s our moral duty to present the proper history of our struggle for independence to the young generation. On the historic Mujibnagar Day, I hope the young generation will know the true history of the liberation war apart from involving themselves in the nation-building inspired by patriotism.”Sheikh Hasina, in her message, urged the country’s people to engage themselves in building Bangladesh as a country free from hunger, poverty and illiteracy as dreamt by Bangabandhu.Awami League and different socio-cultural organisations are observing the day with elaborate programmes.Besides, in Meherpur, deputy commissioner and superintendent of police hoisted flag at memorial monument at Mujibnagar in the morning.Besides, a discussion will be held at Sheikh Hasina Mancha where industries minister Amir Hossain Amu will be present as the chief guest.A special team of Ansar from Dhaka will present an event titled ‘Esho Tarunyer Pathe’ (Come to the path of youth).
The High Court on Monday directed the returning officer of Rangpur district to accept nomination paper of BNP-nominated candidate Jamaat-e-Islami leader Golam Rabbani for Rangpur-5 constituency, reports UNB.An HC bench of justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and justice Rajik Al Jalil came up with the order following a writ petition filed by the candidate on Sunday.Rabbani’s lawyer Shishir Monir said that when Golam Rabbani went to the returning officer to submit his nomination paper on 28 November, the returning officer wasted time without any reason and finally did not accept his nomination paper. However, now the court directed the EC to accept nomination paper as soon as possible.Golam Rabbani also submitted a written application to the chief election commissioner on Saturday.

Karen Gleason, a chemical engineering professor at MIT, along with graduate student Miles Barr and others, showed that the technique could be used to print solar cells on a variety of delicate materials. One example is rice paper, which is used to make spring rolls in restaurants and usually dissolves in wet processes. Since the researchers’ technique is a dry, solvent-free process, the rice paper remains intact. The researchers also demonstrated the technique on plastic Saran wrap, which repels water and would normally be difficult to coat.The new method, called oxidative chemical vapor deposition (oCVD), involves spraying a vapor of a monomer and an oxidizing agent onto a substrate. The monomer and oxidizing agent polymerize when they meet and form PEDOT plastic. The plastic itself is conductive, but the conductivity can be further increased up to 1,000 times by controlling the substrate temperature so that small nanopores form, which can be laced with highly conductive silver particles.The printed solar cells can also withstand a great deal of bending and stretching with minimal effect on their properties. In tests, the researchers bent a printed plastic substrate to a radius of less than 5 mm more than 1,000 times, and found that its efficiency was still 99% of what is was before bending. The electrodes could also be bent and stretched, and still retained their conductivity. To further demonstrate the method’s robustness, Barr folded a piece of paper printed with solar cells into a paper airplane, and showed that the device still generated a current.MIT Professor Karen K. Gleason explains how graduate student Miles Barr folds a solar cell into a paper airplane. The research is part of the Eni-MIT Solar Frontiers Center. Video credit: MIT.As the researchers noted, paper is not typically considered a good substrate for photovoltaics because it’s not transparent. However, the ability to print solar cells at low-cost on flexible, stretchable materials could be very useful for making solar cells more widespread. Since the technique can also be used to print other electronic devices besides solar cells, it could be used for novel applications such as printing electronics on fabric and other flexible displays. To demonstrate how a new fabrication technique can print solar cells on extremely thin, flexible materials, researchers from MIT have patterned solar cells onto ordinary toilet paper. While toilet paper may be an unlikely substrate for practical solar cell applications, it illustrates the versatility of the technique for low-cost printing on a wide variety of materials.
