The Mi Mix 2S may have completely overshadowed Xiaomi’s proceedings with the Mi 7, but that doesn’t mean its next flagship isn’t happening. It’s certainly happening and a new leak now suggests that it may have an iPhone X-like notch up-top even though it’s Xiaomi that started the trend of launching an original bezel-less phone in the name of the Mi Mix. The Mi 7, it seems like, may not be all that original like Xiaomi’s past bezel-less offerings.The leak, that seemingly shows off the front glass panel cutout of the alleged Mi 7, shows the phone having a non-existing top bezel in the form of a notch, and a bottom chin that’s also barely there, smaller than what we’ve seen in the Mi Mix 2. The notch is seen carrying the cutout for the front camera, which can be considered as a relief especially after what we’ve come to see — and experience — in the Mi Mix and the Mi Mix 2.Although the leak makes no specific mention of the hardware set at hand it is widely speculated that the Mi 7 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and also sport a dual camera system on the rear.In other new, Xiaomi is gearing to launch the Mi Mix 2S, in China on March 27. The Mi Mix 2S, which is apparently code-named Polaris, has been subject to numerous leaks and rumours. The Mi Mix 2S will come with a FHD+ 18:9 display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood. It will be based on Android Oreo, and will be backed by a 3,400mAh battery. Rumour as it that it will come with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage.advertisementIts rear camera will further bring in AI features that would apparently help it detect scenes and hopefully change the way it takes pictures accordingly. The phone, in addition, will support dual-SIM and have an IR blaster much like most Xiaomi phones.The Mi Mix 2S, it seems like, would be an incremental upgrade to the Mi Mix 2 packing in next-generation hardware and some fancy new AI tricks. The Mi Mix 2S, will also reportedly, come with a dual camera system on the rear which should be a step-up from what we’ve seen in the Mi Mix 2.

By not emitting any tailpipe gases, this single all-electric straddle carrier will reduce greenhouse gases from the equivalent of 52 fewer passenger vehicles,” the port authority explained.At its October 25, 2018 meeting, the Port Authority’s Board of Commissioners unanimously embraced the Paris Climate Agreement. The resolution adopted by the Board called for a 35 percent reduction by 2025 in greenhouse gas emissions generated by the Port Authority’s own operations. The Board also reaffirmed the agency’s prior commitment to an 80-percent reduction by 2050.

STEPHEN SCOTT / CBC LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: Advertisement Facebook It was during his early days as Appa in Ins Choi’s hit play Kim’s Convenience that Paul Sun-Hyung Lee realized just how convincing he was in the part.At a Toronto Q&A held after a performance a few years back, Lee said he heard something like a gasp from the audience when he began speaking. The Calgary-raised actor has played aging patriarch Appa Kim nearly 500 times on stage and for two seasons on the hit CBC sitcom based on the play, which takes place in a Toronto convenience store and focuses on a dysfunctional Canadian-Korean family. But he is not Appa Kim. For one, he doesn’t have the accent. He also had significantly less grey hair at the time and was also least was 20 years younger than the character he was playing.“There was this huge rumbling,” says Lee, in a phone interview from his home in Toronto. “I couldn’t understand why and then it was ‘Oh, yes, this is my voice. This is how I actually sound.’ People started to laugh and clap. The reactions have ranged from people being completely floored and saying ‘Oh my God, that’s even more incredible’ to people being disappointed and saying ‘Oh, so it’s not real?’ I think it’s a huge compliment as an actor when it doesn’t even occur to people that it’s an accent that is being put on.” Advertisement Twitter

Credit: Eileen McClory | Senior Lantern ReporterThe Ohio State women’s ice hockey team is still searching for consistency after losing both games in its weekend series to Bemidji State, falling to 4-6-0 on the season.On Friday, the Buckeyes lost 2-1 despite outshooting the Beavers 22-17 in what turned out to be a stifling defensive game. Freshman forward Dana Rasmussen scored the lone goal for OSU. Senior Hannah Moher and sophomore Bailey Wright scored for the Beavers.On Saturday, the third period began tied 1-1 with the Buckeyes leading in shots 27-14. But two goals late in the third period gave Bemidji State the victory and the series sweep.“I think for the most part we controlled both the games. I thought we outplayed them for the majority of the game,” OSU coach Jenny Potter said. “I think there were just a few times that our players broke down mentally.” Bemidji State junior goaltender Brittni Mowat started both games for the Beavers, allowing just two goals on the weekend despite facing a combined 55 shots in the two games.“Bemidji has a great team, but they’re not invincible. We had plenty of scoring opportunities, plenty of chances, our team needs to learn how to bury them,” Potter said.Redshirt freshman Alex LaMere started both games in goal for the Buckeyes, turning away all but three shots on the weekend, while going through long stretches of quiet net play. With the lull in opportunities to save shots, LaMere said she just tries to stay locked in.“It’s definitely a mental game at that point, you just have to keep sharp on your edges,” LaMere said.The second game opened with the Buckeyes holding an 8-1 shot advantage, but the team believed the tempo of the game picked up considerably as it wore on. LaMere said she thinks the defense was able to keep pace with the Beavers’ attack. “Our defensive zone has come a really long way,” LaMere said. “(The skaters) stick with your girl, if we can play five-on-five that way we’ll be just fine.”LaMere expressed no frustration in having sit through a quiet first half of play before a run of fast-paced play in the final 30 minutes.“Yesterday we saw a lot of the same thing as today, it started off slower and then the pace picked up, from a goalie’s standpoint. (We) just have to keep moving and keep in the game,” LaMere said.Bemidji State entered the weekend series with one of the top ranked defenses in all of college hockey, however, OSU expressed frustration at the opportunities missed having outshot the Beavers in both games.“I guess they’re learning the hard way,” Potter said. “It can be frustrating as a coach, but it’s the learning process they’re going through.”Senior forward Kendall Curtis, who scored the lone OSU goal on Saturday, voiced her irritation with the lack of offensive results, but she said she believes in the team’s system.“Sometimes it can get frustrating, but we what want to focus on is getting new looks and how to create new offense, that was our focus,” Curtis said.Curtis’ goal was the product of strong communication and game planning with her linemates: sophomore Julianna Iafallo and junior Claudia Kepler.“We really know our roles,” Curtis said. “We know that the best way for us to operate is by playing with some giddy-up, winning battles, keeping it simple, keeping our feet moving.”Curtis, who earlier this week was named an alternate captain, said she thinks the play of her line is important to the success of the program, which is struggling to score with only 22 goals in its first 10 games.“The giddy-up we bring to the ice every shift is really important,” Curtis said. “We know that.”The Buckeyes are set to begin a five-game road swing when they travel to face North Dakota in Grand Forks for a weekend series on Nov. 14 and 15.

Teenage star Phil Foden insists he sees himself continuing at Manchester City, despite fellow young prospects Jadon Sancho and Brahim Diaz both leavingFoden broke into the first-team at City last season in a Champions League match against Feyenoord at just 17 years old and he’s since gone on to make a further 24 appearances.Manager Pep Guardiola is a big admirer of Foden’s and has already ruled out a loan move for the 18-year-old, despite having never handed him a Premier League start.Nevertheless, Foden has no plans on emulating new Real Madrid signing Diaz and Borussia Dortmund’s Sancho in leaving City for better first-team opportunities.“It shows the strength of the squad we have here, how good the players are – it is difficult to get in, but we all try our best,” said Foden, according to FourFourTwo.“It’s up to them [Diaz and Sancho], really – they have gone their separate ways, and everyone has their own plan in what they want to do, so fair play to them.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Everyone is different, and I see myself playing here.

He will do well, I know it.“I grew up with him and know his qualities, so I know he’ll do well. Maybe one day I’ll face him in the Champions League.”Foden has made 15 appearances for City this season across all competitions with five of them being starts.
