iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 mini Pass Flame, Scratch, Bend Tests With Ease

first_imgiPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini passed flame, scratch, and bend tests with flying colours. Youtuber JerryRigEverything got his hands on an early unit of both iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini and conducted his customary range of durability tests. The two phones aced all the tests with ease. Particularly noteworthy was the flame test, wherein the two iPhones showed no signs of damage even after 50 seconds of being exposed to a small blaze from a lighter.JerryRigEverything published a video wherein he carries out his usual scratch, bend, and flame tests on iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini. In his scratch test, it was discovered that the two phones do get scratched at level 6 on Mohs scale, with deeper grooves at level 7. However, these scratches are much less prominent than usual. Apple has put in its new ceramic shield on the display for added protection. It is essentially a special form of glass that has ceramic crystals embedded into the glass matrix. The company claims that this has improved the iPhone’s shatter resistance.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – iPhone 12 mini was discovered to have an aluminium frame, whereas iPhone 12 Pro Max has a stainless steel frame. The two phones were exposed to a lighter flame for about 50 seconds each, and both managed to survive without any damage to the pixels.

Winemakers in trouble: For the first six months, wine sales fell by up to 80 percent

first_imgReduced consumption, stocks at their highest level since 2009, additional import duties on European wines in the US as the main EU market and the pandemic have significantly destabilized the EU wine market, and this has been reflected in the Croatian market. The reduction in general demand, the blockade of the HORECA channel and the absence of a real tourist season as a significant generator of consumption, as well as difficulties in placement in EU member states and third countries, will drastically reduce wine consumption. Therefore, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce proposed to the relevant Ministry of Agriculture changes to the National Program for Assistance to the Wine Sector, the so-called wine envelopes. A survey conducted by the Chamber within the Wine Association of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce shows that the placement of 50 to 60 percent of wine stocks is currently problematic, and sales are expected to fall by up to 80 percent in the first six months. The European Commission has amended the legislative framework that allows for the application of emergency measures for viticulture and viticulture. “The Chamber proposed that most of the 43 million kuna aid be directed to reducing stocks through the distillation of surplus wine, with a support of five kuna per liter on the basis of 11 percent alcohol. The minimum application for distillation would be five thousand liters, the maximum up to 30 percent of the stock. The rest would be used for crisis storage,”Said the vice president of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for agriculture and tourism Dragan Kovacevic, noting that the proposal also includes a favorable credit line for winemakers through HBOR and Hamag Bicro, with acceptable collateral and interest instruments, a maturity of five years and a grace period of one year. Almost all wineries realize over 70 percent of their sales through the tourist season.center_img Likvidnost vinara i vinogradara ubrzano slabi, što dovodi u pitanje financiranje tekuće proizvodnje vina i grožđa te otkup grožđa berbe 2020. od kooperanata. “For the first six months of this year, sales are estimated to fall by about 80 percent, which will not be possible to compensate in the second half of the year” ističe Kovačević te dodaje kako bi se brojne vinarije mogle naći na rubu održivosti zbog pada cijena i blokade prodaje te bez pomoći države. The National Program is a basic document that determines how and why the funds intended for the wine and viticulture sector from the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund are used, they conclude from the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. Izmjenama Nacionalnog programa pomoći sektoru vina 2019.-2023. godina omogućila bi se primjena izvanrednih mjera potpore za stabilizaciju tržišta vina – Distillation of wine in case of crisis and Support for crisis storage of wine. The crisis caused by the coronavirus has strongly affected the viticulture, ie wine sector. At the moment, wine stocks are accumulating, which is especially pronounced in larger and large wine producers, which is why there is a lack of storage capacity. last_img read more

However, Solskjaer was unhappy over Matic’s sending-off after he was shown a second yellow card by referee Kevin Friend for a foul on Ilkay Gundogan. ‘For me, it’s a joke. Never a sending-off,’ he said. ‘It’s hard to come here and score a goal with 11 players never mind 10. ‘The first one’s not a yellow, he’s unlucky and I disagree with that decision. It’s ironic, the first time he makes a foul he gets a yellow. How many times did they foul us? How many times was Dan James fouled?‘But that’s the ref’s decision because he was man of the match for me today. ‘It shouldn’t be like this because I’m proud of the players.

Even though they didn’t create too many clear cut chances they defended well which pleased me.’ Guardiola argued that City were the best team over both legs and deserve to be in the final for the third year in a row. ‘We played a top side with physicality and we created enough chances to score,’ he said. ‘They shot on target once and scored and once in the second half. ‘I was pleased with the 180 minutes, in both games we were better. I’m so satisfied with the way we’ve played.’ Manchester City said they would look into footage of the crowd disorder that marred Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup semi-final derby against Manchester United. Both sets of supporters had to be held back by stewards and the police officers in attendance Just 24 hours after United chief Ed Woodward’s Cheshire house was attacked by hooded thugs, more trouble erupted as a group of United fans tore up seats and hurled them towards City’s supporters. The home fans threw them back and were also caught on video taunting their rivals over the Munich air disaster. A red smoke canister appeared to be thrown into the home section after Nemanja Matic’s first-half strike, too.United won the match but City progressed to the final, where they will meet Aston Villa on March 1. City will look at CCTV to try and identify those supporters responsible. A flare also appeared to have been thrown into the home section of City’s stadium Manager Pep Guardiola said: ‘I don’t like it. I didn’t know it but if that happened it’s not nice. ‘I didn’t like what happened with Ed Woodward. This is football. I’m sure you see the United squad it’s really good. That’s not the way to do it.’ A young pitch invader also had to be ushered away towards the end by City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and a steward after making his way on to the playing surface. On the pitch, United inflicted City’s first Carabao Cup defeat in 17 games and 1,190 days — stretching back to a win over their rivals in October 2016. Seats were thrown by both Manchester City and Manchester United fans inside the Etihad But City won 3-2 on aggregate thanks to their 3-1 win in the first leg at Old Trafford earlier this month.last_img read more

Premier League firm over rights

first_img Press Association An Ofcom spokesperson said: “Virgin Media has today made an application for interim measures, which we must now review. We aim to reach a decision in a matter of days.” The Premier League issued invitations to tender (ITT) in December for the broadcast rights for three seasons starting in August 2016 with 168 live matches available in total – 14 more than are currently shown, which means that 44 per cent of all Premier League games will be available live. Virgin Media made the application to Ofcom on Thursday morning. Brigitte Trafford, Virgin Media’s chief corporate affairs officer, said: “The Premier League has pushed ahead with its early sale of TV rights despite Ofcom’s investigation. “With 18 months until those deals begin, there is plenty of time for Ofcom to pause the auction process while it completes its inquiries. Failure to do so will leave fans, who already pay the most to see the least amount of football in Europe, facing yet another big rise in the cost of watching live football on TV.” The Premier League hit back saying Virgin Media’s “self-serving” action should not affect the TV rights sale. A Premier League statement said: “The Premier League made Ofcom aware almost two months ago that its next UK live broadcast rights auction process would be taking place in February 2015. “A self-serving media release from Virgin Media should have no bearing on the sale of the Premier League’s rights. “Given the global interest in our rights it is essential that we give successful bidders ample time to put plans in place to utilise fully the rights they acquire. The sale of the rights is due to be completed in early February but Virgin Media wants the outcome delayed until Ofcom has finished its investigation into the complaint lodged by the media company last year. Ofcom said it would make a decision within days – the regulator could itself have instituted measures to halt the auction two months ago but chose not to. The Premier League has insisted there is no legal basis to halt its sale of domestic TV rights for the 2016-19 seasons after Virgin Media asked broadcast regulator Ofcom to delay the auction. “Moreover, the League’s sales process will be conducted fully in compliance with competition law and there is no legal basis whatsoever for any interference with the sales process or the legitimate operation of the market.” The auction is expected to herald another bumper pay-day for top-flight clubs – even higher than than the current £3.018billion deal. There will be seven packages available, as under the current system, but the Monday night package will include up to 10 games to be played on Friday night. The announcement fired the starting gun on the contest to secure the live rights, with current rights holders Sky and BT Sport plus the Discovery channel all expected to bid. League chiefs took the decision not to delay the ITT despite the Ofcom investigation because that could take up to two years. Increasing the number of games made available live however could be seen as a move towards trying to satisfy Ofcom. The Premier League has insisted however that the Saturday 3pm kick-off time remains sacrosanct, and that matches played at that time will not be shown live. last_img read more

Burnett destroys Pacesetters to hand Kobras second win

first_img… Ravens edge Bulls in one-point thriller JUST when it mattered most, Travis ‘The Blur’ Burnett, one of the country’s premier point guards, poured in a tournament-high 41 points against his former club Pacesetters, to lead newcomers Kobras to a 84-64 points win, to keep their ‘final four’ spot alive in this year’s Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation (GABF) National Club Championships, at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.Also in the winners’ row were Retrieve Raiders who picked up their first win, 59-52 over the Guardians and eliminated the Plaisance-based team in the process.Ravens also closed off their group stage round with an important come-from-behind 76-75 win of the Half Mile Bulls – a victory that could determine the once Number One club’s fate.Meanwhile, playing in the night’s first game, the Kobras, behind Burnett’s sensational night, chalked up their second win in a fashion that sent a statement to the rest of the tournament when he guided his side to hand Pacesetters their first defeat of the tournament.Burnett is not known as a shooter, but as his coach Jermain Slater stated, the point guard has been working on his shooting and Pacesetters had a first-hand experience and one that they would not forget.The Kobras point guard scored 24 of his 41 from ‘down town’ while Pacesetters’ Nathan Saul, who had the task of squaring off against his former club mate, was no match in the back court, as Burnett easily manoeuvred his way to the rim.Mark Richards scored 15 and Slater, the player/coach, had 12 for the Kobras, who will play Retrieve Raiders on Friday. A win will put them on the brink of a final-four berth, depending on the outcome of the Pacesetters versus the undefeated Victory Valley Royals game tomorrow.Saul finished the night with 11, a team-high, while Stephan Gillis, the team’s usual marksman, and still one the best shooters in the country, was just good enough for eight points on an off-night.In the second game of the triple-header, Ravens, behind the brilliance of Darcel Harris, played from behind to come up big in the final quarter to win a crucial game against Bulls 76-75.The Bulls, with Terron Welch as their primary scored, raced to a 22-14 first-quarter lead, but Harris was the Ravens’ distributor and rallied Tyrone Hamid (22) and Sabastian Luke (18) to outscore the Bulls 18-17 but trailed 32-39 at the half-way mark.The third period saw Ravens score 24 points as compared to the Bulls’ 21 and with Welch ‘hitting’, the Bulls still held on to a four-point lead (60-56) to close the penultimate stanza on the exciting match.While Harris might not have gotten to the rim as much, his assists were invaluable as he pushed his men to a 20-15 fourth quarter score, making several ‘clutch’ plays to keep his hopes alive.Vibert Benjamin finished the night with 18 and Michael Turner was clod on the floor but finished with 10.Meanwhile, the Raiders versus Guardians game was a battle between the winless. However, the Linden side led from ‘jump ball’ to come away with the seven-point margin win (59-52).Point guard Keon Cameron had his best game of the tournament with a crafty 17 points, while Omally Sampson and Marvin Hartman contributed 12 and 11 points respectively.For Plaisance Guardians, junior national centre Akeem Crandon had a team-high 14 and Trenton Woolford finished the night with 10.last_img read more

Syracuse hopes for increased production from point guard rotation as Louisiana Tech visits Carrier Dome

first_imgKaleb Joseph looks through defenses, Michael Gbinije looks over them and Ron Patterson comes off the bench to fire Syracuse up with a combination of raw energy and shooting.As an inexperienced Orange (5-3) team tries to find an offensive groove in the final two weeks of nonconference play, it also adjusts to shifts at point guard. When the struggling freshman leaves the floor, either Gbinije, a small forward, or Patterson, a shooting guard, takes over at the point.And while SU gets back to playing non-power conference teams when it faces Louisiana Tech (7-2) at 4 p.m. in the Carrier Dome on Sunday, it does so with an offense that will continue to change with its point guards and their imperfections.Joseph has a 1.6 assist-to-turnover ratio. Gbinije’s is 1.0 and Patterson, who as a shooter is often making the extra pass, has a mark of 3.2.“As long as I’m playing, that’s what I really care about,” Gbinije said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJust 1:06 after coming in for Joseph in the second half of Syracuse’s Dec. 6 game against St. John’s, Patterson sunk a 3 from above the left corner to bring the Orange within five of the Red Storm.It was the start of a gradual rally by the Orange in a game it ultimately lost, and summed up Patterson’s role in an offense in flux. He comes into games, the Carrier Dome crowd gets excited, he shoots the looks he finds and gets hot when they go in.He’s a boost off the bench — just one with production that has only come in spurts.“He brings energy and we like having him off the bench,” SU guard Trevor Cooney said. “He can shoot, so he’ll come around as a shooter.”In the mean time, Gbinije remains the Orange’s second-choice point guard. He’s not nearly as fluid as Joseph, often hesitating at the arc before working his way into an offensive set.But the 6-foot-7 forward who frequently defends the wings of SU’s 2-3 zone does bring an expanded court vision.“Mike, he’s big and he’s tall so he sees the floor a little more,” SU forward Chris McCullough said. “He’s just got to make better decisions, that’s it.”The three men that bring the ball up the court for the Orange reflect Syracuse’s start to the season.For every compliment from teammates there is a qualification. Joseph slashes down the court but takes the wrong shot or dribbles the wrong lane. Gbinije is built to play for Syracuse and sees more, but doesn’t always know what to do with it. Patterson brings excitement, but also sighs to the Carrier Dome crowd.And ultimately, like the rest of the Orange, more of Patterson’s shots need to go in.“Coach tells him to shoot ‘em,” McCullough said. “If he’s open he’s got to make them.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on December 13, 2014 at 3:23 pm Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_last_img read more
