first_imgNovak Djokovic of Serbia (left) is congratulated by Andy Murray of Britain after winning the men’s singles final at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia on Sunday. AP PhotoNovak Djokovic won his fifth Australian Open title and extended Andy Murray’s misery at Melbourne Park by beating the Scotsman 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-0 in the final Sunday.Murray has now been a losing finalist four times here, losing twice previously to Djokovic in 2011 and 2013 and to Roger Federer in 2010. Djokovic is a perfect 5-for-5 in Australian Open finals and has eight Grand Slam titles.Djokovic swung momentum in a close match with a service break in the eighth game of the third set, winning four straight points. When he took a 4-0 lead in the last set, he smacked his fist hard against his chest in celebration.At the end of the match, Djokovic threw his racket into the crowd at Rod Laver Arena.Roy Emerson, the only other man with five or more Australian titles, was in the crowd and Djokovic acknowledged the presence of the six-time champion.”I’m so grateful to be standing here as a champion for the fifth time, and to be in the elite group of players – Roy Emerson, Rod Laver and all the legends of our sport,” Djokovic said.Murray sat slumped over in his chair after the match, awaiting the presentations, and once again received the runner-up plate instead of the trophy.”I had amazing support again here,” Murray said. “It’s been my most consistent Grand Slam of my career. I haven’t been quite able to win, but the support I’ve received here has been amazing. I’ll try and come back next year and hopefully have a slightly different outcome in the final.”advertisementDjokovic faced three break points in the third game of the opening set but saved them all, twice coming to the net, including on game point, to hold and take a 2-1 lead. He broke Murray in the next game, but Murray got back on serve when he broke Djokovic in the seventh game.Djokovic served for the first set after breaking Murray in the eighth game, but Murray broke back. After that game, Djokovic had a trainer attend to this right thumb.Novak Djokovic of Serbia celebrates after defeating Andy Murray of Britain in the men’s singles final at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia on Sunday. AP PhotoHe double-faulted to open the tiebreaker but then, after Murray took a 2-1 lead, won five of the next six points to regain control. He clinched the set when Murray netted a backhand service return.In the second set, Djokovic saved a set point in the 10th game and Murray saved three break points in the 11th before it went to the tiebreaker. Sixth-seeded Murray dominated the breaker to lead 6-2, securing four set points before clinching it on Djokovic’s serve.The second set was delayed for about five minutes after the seventh game when a court invader protesting Australia’s refugee policies was removed by security after stepping on to the court. Other spectators in the stadium unfurled a political banner.Djokovic broke Murray’s serve in the eighth game of the third set, winning four straight points, prompting the Scottish player to throw his racket and yell repeatedly into his towel. The crowd booed Murray’s display.There was a bigger cheer for Djokovic when the introductions were made, but plenty of Scottish flags in the stands. Some Serbian fans yelled “Adje Nole” – Serbian for Come on Nole, which is Djokovic’s nickname.Before the match began, Andy Murray’s fiancee, Kim Sears, caused a stir. She was dressed in an oversized T-shirt with a message that poked fun at the widespread attention paid to her use of colorful language during Murray’s semifinal win over Tomas Berdych.Rather than shy away from the issue, Sears’ T-shirt for the final showed a sense of humor. It read: “Parental Advisory Explicit Content.”last_img read more

6.1-inch iPhone X with LCD display, single rear camera will be popular: Apple analyst

first_imgApple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said a few months ago that Apple will launch three iPhones in 2018, similar to how it did things last year. The three upcoming iPhones will likely include an updated iPhone X, a Plus model and a more affordable iPhone model with a 6.1-inch LCD display. Rumours around the LCD iPhone have been doing the rounds quite a bit, and Kuo has more to add this week. The analyst not only details the 6.1-inch iPhone, but also talks about three new Apple products coming this year.In his latest investor note, Kuo continues with the same prediction that Apple will launch three iPhone later this year. Of the three, the 6.1-inch iPhone is expected to be the most popular as it will not only offer an iPhone X-like design, but it will also come at a more affordable price point compared to the other two. This will be possible because Apple will be going for an LCD display rather than OLED. Kuo believes that this decision may cause some difficulties in mass production, but will not lead to a delay from its planned September release.Kuo adds that the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will cost somewhere between $600 to $700, which is significantly lower than the $1000 iPhone X. The lower price point will be possible because the iPhone will not only miss out on OLED display, but will also miss 3D Touch and will bear only a single rear camera. Earlier this week, a 3D render of the case for the 6.1-inch iPhone also imagined a single rear camera on the back of the iPhone.advertisementAs far as the other two iPhones are concerned, both the updated iPhone X and the Plus model are expected to sport OLED displays with all the high-end Apple specs including Face ID 2.0, 3D Touch and dual cameras. In fact, recent reports have also suggested the iPhone X Plus could sport a triple lens setup to take on the Huawei P20 Pro.Moving on, Kuo also talks about a cheaper MacBook Air, iPad Pro models with Face ID and Apple Watch models with larger displays, all of which have been spoken about by Kuo in the past as well. With Kuo’s latest predictions in line with what he said in the past, it looks even more certain that these products will see the light of day by the end of the year.ALSO READ: 6.1-inch iPhone case render leaked showing single rear cameralast_img read more

New Guide Boosts Business Case for Valuing Ecosystem Services

first_imgAlmost all financial institutions are now concerned with this issue…A healthy environment is the foundation for a strong and sustainable economy. A key challenge for us is to manage the competing human demands [on resources] without undermining crucial ecosystem functions.”— Kyung-Ah Park, Managing Director of Goldman Sachs’ Center for Environmental Markets Kyung-Ah Park, Managing Director of Goldman Sachs’ Center for Environmental Markets, used her keynote address to underscore the guide’s relevance for business in a world of depleting resources. “Almost all financial institutions are now concerned with this issue,” she said. “A healthy environment is the foundation for a strong and sustainable economy. A key challenge for us is to manage the competing human demands [on resources] without undermining crucial ecosystem functions.”WRI, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and WBCSD have already collaborated to road test the guide with 14 companies. Representatives of these companies were on hand at Tuesday’s event to discuss their experiences.“Our mission is to be the most respected company in our sector,” Erica Guerra said of her company Holcim, whose Corporate Ecosystem Valuation road test examined the restoration of wetlands in the United Kingdom. “Our approach is not to be philanthropic, we don’t want to just write a check. We want to engage with the communities we operate in.” Holcim’s project achieved 1.4 million pounds in benefits to the company and the local community.Representatives from some of the 14 road testing companies discussed their experiences with the Guide at Tuesday’s event. Photo credit: Kathy Doucette, WRI Representatives from over 60 organizations convened at the World Resources Institute on May 3 for the launch of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s (WBCSD) Guide to Corporate Ecosystem Valuation.The Guide was motivated in part by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment’s conclusions that over half the benefits we receive from intact ecosystems have been lost or degraded over a 50 year period. It builds on WRI’s and WBCSD’s Corporate Ecosystem Services Review, a method that helps business managers develop strategies that address new risks and opportunities resulting from the acceleration of ecosystem change.Janet Ranganathan, WRI’s Vice President for Science and Research, opened the event by giving examples of how ecosystems services and economic development are intimately entwined. “A new highway, or a new mine doesn’t just impact the environment, it also impacts local ecosystems services such as freshwater, which in turn can impact business.” Looking at their operations in this holistic way, and placing a value on such ecosystems services, can help companies improve decision making, she added.Failure to properly recognize and manage ecosystem services costs corporations billions of dollars annually in lost natural capital, according to WBCSD’s James Griffiths. He touted the new Guide, which provides a framework for valuing ecosystem services, as a tool for businesses to strengthen their performance. “The Guide to Corporate Ecosystem Valuation (CEV) is a way we’re hoping companies get it right,” he said. “Economic growth that delivers on the social agenda and is based on ecological values. This is about leveraging the tremendous value of ecosystems.”center_img Mark Weick of Dow emphasized the Guide’s benefit to a company’s bottom line. “[Dow uses] a lot of energy, something like a medium-sized OPEC member. So we’ve been very interested in energy efficiency. But we recognized that we weren’t being efficient with our ecosystem services. We’re making sure we can value ecosystem services properly, not only today, but in the future.That understanding of a business’s impact reflects the guiding concept of the Guide to Corporate Ecosystem Valuation: businesses both depend on and affect the ecosystems in which they operate.Mary Beth West of the International Union for Conservation of Nature said that while the CEV provides an important framework for businesses to leverage the value of ecosystems, it must be used in conjunction with other tools, some of which are not yet fully developed. Event participants emphasized the need for collaboration among businesses, NGOs, and stakeholders in order to enhance the feasibility of ecosystem valuation.“We’ll take a blend of the existing tools that are out there,” Weick said. “Hopefully we’ll be able to learn what is helpful and what is not helpful. We want to engage very strongly in a dialogue by publishing what we’re doing.”Also looking to the future, Jody Strickland of Weyerhaeuser said that it will be critically important to “link ecosystem value processes to conventional financial accounting…so we can determine how much value an ecosystem can generate and balance the trade-offs.”The Guide to Corporate Ecosystems Valuation is a companion report to the Corporate Ecosystem Services Review, published by WRI, WBCSD and the Meridian Institute, which provides guidelines on business risks and opportunities arising from ecosystem change.last_img read more
