Honor View 20’s hypnotic colors will make your jaw drop Phantom blue Honor 8X is pure eye candy The Honor View 20 may be Huawei’s only new phone at CES 2019 (and, in fact, the only satisfying phone of the entire show), but the company threw in a bonus device. Or rather, a bonus color for the Honor 8X: Phantom Blue. Take a look at the photos below — it’s pretty.What makes the color “phantom” is the shifting quality of its finish, which changes from blue to purple and pink when it catches the light. It’s a technique that Huawei and other Chinese rivals have used on phones in 2018 to eye-catching effect. The Huawei P20 Pro was one particularly successful example, with a similar color gradient to the new Honor 8X shade. $174 Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment 2:58 CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.Dazzling Honor View 20 has you in its thrall at CES 2019 14 Photos Mentioned Above Huawei Honor 8X (black) CES 2019 0 Huawei Honor 8X See it Preview • The Honor 8X is like a super-cheap iPhone XS Max, in all the best ways Dazzling Honor View 20 phone will dazzle you Phones Tags 28 Photos Huawei has sold 6 million Honor 8X phones, the company announced ahead of CES 2019.The Honor View 20, which we also saw here at CES, comes in Phantom Red and Phantom Blue, which are equally mesmerizing.

.Japan’s emperor Akihito will step down on 30 April 2019, the prime minister Shinzo Abe announced Friday. This is the first retirement in more than two centuries in the imperial family believed to be the world’s oldest.Shinzo Abe said he was “deeply moved” at the “smooth decision” taken after a special meeting of the Imperial Council to decide on the date for the popular 83-year-old to step down for health reasons.”The government will make utmost efforts to ensure that the Japanese people can celebrate the emperor’s abdication and the succession of the crown prince,” added Abe.Akihito’s eldest son, 57-year-old crown prince Naruhito, is expected to ascend the Chrysanthemum Throne the next day.The emperor shocked the country last year when he signaled his desire to take a back seat after nearly three decades, citing his age and health problems.There have been abdications in Japan’s long imperial history dating back more than 2,600 years but the last one was more than two centuries ago.Akihito is the 125th person to sit on the Chrysanthemum Throne since emperor Jimmu, said to be a descendant of the legendary sun goddess Amaterasu.Emperors have played a crucial role in the country’s native Shinto religion, conducting various annual rites and prayers for the prosperity of the nation.- Female succession -There is no republican movement to speak of in Japan and the emperor and the royal families enjoy the admiration of the vast majority of the country.But Akihito’s unexpected move presented a challenge since there was no law to deal with an emperor retiring from what is usually a job for life — and it reignited debate about allowing women to ascend the traditionally male-only throne.In June, the parliament passed a one-off rule allowing the ageing emperor to step down.The abdication must take place within three years and applies only to Akihito, who has been treated for prostrate cancer and has also had heart surgery.Some worried that changing the rule to allow any emperor to abdicate could put Japan’s future monarchs at risk of being subject to political manipulation.The status of the emperor is sensitive in Japan given its 20th century history of war waged in the name of Akihito’s father Hirohito, who died in 1989.Akihito was born in 1933 just as Japan was embarking on its militaristic sweep across Asia, and was 11 when the war ended in defeat.His father was allowed to remain on the throne after Japan’s defeat, but his status was downgraded from semi-divine sovereign to a figurehead with no political power.Akihito embraced the role and tried to use it to help heal the scars of the war while remoulding one of the world’s oldest monarchies for a democratic age.Even before he assumed the throne, Akihito broke with tradition when he married the daughter of a wealthy flour magnate in 1959, becoming the first imperial heir to wed a commoner.The emperor and his wife empress Michiko are seen as being the more accessible face of a monarchy that largely remains in the shadows, unlike the British royals.Akihito is barred from commenting on politics, but he has over the years hinted at his own anti-nationalist views.Speaking at a memorial marking the 70th anniversary of Japan’s surrender, Akihito expressed “deep remorse” for the country’s actions in World War II.The looming abdication has reignited concerns about a potential succession crisis.There are no more eligible male heirs after the 11-year-old son of crown prince Naruhito’s younger brother Akishino.Japan’s centuries-old succession would be broken if that son, Hisahito, does not have a male child.In response, Japan’s parliament has called for a debate on giving women a bigger role in the male-dominated monarchy.The idea — including the possibility of letting women ascend the throne — is popular with ordinary Japanese, but it is vehemently opposed by traditionalists.Female imperial family members lose their royal status upon marriage to a commoner, a point highlighted by the engagement of one of Akihito’s granddaughters, princess Mako, to her college sweetheart.
Poet Al MahmudProminent poet Al Mahmud died at the age of 82 at a hospital in Dhaka on Friday night.The poet breathed his last at 11:05pm at the city’s Ibn Sina Hospital, confirmed his family.Abid Azam, a family friend and assistant of the poet, told Prothom Alo that Al Mahmud was put on life support as he was suffering from pneumonia and old-age complications.On 9 February, the poet was admitted to the hospital.Mir Abdus Shukur Al Mahmud, best known as Al Mahmud, was a poet, novelist, and short-story writer.He was born on 11 July, 1936 at Maurail in Brahmanbaria.Al Mahmud is considered as one of the greatest Bengla poets to have emerged in the 20th century.The Ekushey Padak winning poet’s works in Bangla poetry is dominated by his frequent use of imageries of rural Bangladesh.In the 1950s he was among those Bangalee poets who were outspoken in their writing on such subjects as the events of the Bangla Language Movement, nationalism, political and economic repression, and the struggle against the West Pakistani government.He spent his childhood in Maurail village.Mahmud started his career as a journalist and obtained widespread recognition after ‘Lok Lokantor’ was published in 1963.Al Mahmud was honoured with Ekushey Padak, Bangla Academy Award, and Kabi Jasim Uddin Award in recognition of his contribution to Bangla literature.
Imran KhanPakistan prime minister Imran Khan asked Sunday if the international community would just stand by as Indian Hindu nationalism spread into Muslim-majority Kashmir, saying it was the same as appeasing Hitler.His outrage on Twitter came as tensions simmered between the two countries over the divided Himalayan region after New Delhi last week rescinded years of autonomy enjoyed by the Indian-ruled part of Kashmir and gave full control to the central government.Kashmir has been under virtual lockdown since shortly before the move, with a curfew across the region, and phone and internet lines cut — ostensibly to prevent unrest.Huge numbers of troops are patrolling the streets of major centres, and security forces used tear gas Friday to break up a demonstration by about 8,000 people against the government’s move.Tensions also remain fraught in the mountainous Ladakh region.A local activist told AFP dozens of protesters took part in rallies on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with at least 10 injured as security forces used tear gas and sticks on demonstrators.State police chief Dilbagh Singh said late Saturday that “not a single incident of violence was reported from anywhere” in Kashmir, although this conflicted with independent sources.Kashmir has been split between India and Pakistan since their independence in 1947.They have fought two wars over the former kingdom, while an insurgency against New Delhi’s rule in Indian-administered Kashmir has claimed tens of thousands of lives in the past three decades.Khan tweeted Sunday that the “ideology of Hindu Supremacy, like the Nazi Aryan Supremacy, will not stop” in Kashmir.Describing the move as “the Hindu Supremacists version of Hitler’s Lebensraum”, he said it would lead to “the suppression of Muslims in India & eventually lead to targeting of Pakistan”.”Attempt is to change demography of Kashmir through ethnic cleansing,” he tweeted. “Question is: Will the world watch & appease as they did Hitler at Munich?”‘Clampdown affects Eid’He referred specifically to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the ultra Hindu nationalist volunteer movement considered the parent of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of Indian prime minister Narendra Modi.Khan’s social media outburst came as the residents in Kashmir valley said they were struggling to celebrate the major Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha because of the security crackdown.A mother who gave her named as Razia said she tried to explain to her daughter that she would not be able to buy her clothes to mark the occasion, as her husband fretted about feeding the family.”What sort of Eid is this?” asked the 45-year-old in Srinagar.”We are not even allowed to move outside. My husband is a daily wage labourer but hasn’t made any money for the last eight days.”A sheep trader at a Srinagar market, who gave his name as Maqbool, said the number of people buying sacrifical animals for the holiday was sharply lower and he had gone from “huge profits” to a “big loss” this year.Modi insisted last week the decision to strip Kashmir of its autonomy was necessary for its economic development and also to stop “terrorism”.He said with Kashmir now fully part of the Indian union, the region would enjoy more jobs and less corruption and red-tape, adding that key infrastructure projects would be expedited.Previously, under its constitutional autonomy, Kashmiris enjoyed special privileges such as the sole right to own land and take government jobs or university scholarships.Islamabad has been infuriated by New Delhi’s moves and has expelled the Indian ambassador, halted what little bilateral trade exists and suspended cross-border transport services.

Photo Gallery ACC Network Extra Both teams went quietly in the ninth, however the Musketeers edged ahead in the 10th via a passed ball. The contest remained tied at two until the fourth when Xavier (2-5) picked up a two-out RBI single to move back in front. Louisville (5-3) never led on Tuesday, but had an answer for each of the first four Xavier runs. PDF Box Score Preview The Musketeers jumped on the board first with three consecutive singles to open the ballgame and added a second with a sacrifice fly. However, UofL starting pitcher Luke Smith limited the damage with a double play to end the frame. The Louisville attack got rolling in similar fashion, with consecutive singles from Lucas Dunn and Jake Snider starting the bottom half of the inning. Tyler Fitzgerald cut the deficit in half with a sacrifice fly that scored Dunn, and Danny Oriente knotted the game up at two with a run-scoring single two batters later. Oriente worked a five-pitch walk to start the bottom of the 10th, with Louisville looking for an answer one more time. With one away, Ethan Stringer doubled into right to move pinch-runner Adam Elliott to third and put a pair of runners in scoring position. A fly ball off the bat of Davis proved not to be deep enough to bring the runner home and a strikeout ended the comeback effort for the Cardinals.

For all dog owners out there, your canine friends are paying attention to what you say and do and they’ll remember too. It will be a delightful discovery for dog lovers to know about the findings of this study.A new study has suggested that just like humans, dogs too have “episodic memory” – the ability to remember and recall events from the past. The study revealed that dogs can recall a person’s complex actions even when they don’t expect to have their memory tested. “The results of our study can be considered as a further step to break down artificially erected barriers between animals and humans,” said Claudia Fugazza from Eotvos Lorand University (ELTE) in Budapest, Hungary. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor the study, the team first trained 17 dogs to imitate human actions with the “Do as I Do” training method, in which dogs watch a person perform an action and then do the action themselves. For example, if their owner jumps in the air and then gives the “Do it!” command, the dog would jump in the air too. Next, the dogs were trained to lie down after watching the human action, no matter what it was.After the dogs had learned to lie down reliably, the researchers surprised them by saying “Do It” and the dogs did. The dogs were then tested in that way after one minute and after one hour. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe results showed they were able to recall the demonstrated actions after both short and long time intervals. However, their memory faded somewhat over time, the researchers observed. The same approach can most likely be used and adapted in a wide range of animal species, to better understand how animals’ minds process their own actions and that of others around them, the researchers noted. The study published in the journal Current Biology.

A ban on junk food advertising in the UK will apply across all media, extending the rules that already apply to kids TV.The widening of the ban beyond TV means advertising of all high fat, salt or sugar (HFSS) products is prohibited online and on social media, in print and in cinemas.The HFSS ban in kids TV has divided opinion, with many parents and consumer groups welcoming the move. Producers and channel operators in the UK have, however, noted that it removed the financial structures that underpinned the financing of kids content.Commercial channels ITV and Channel 4 both reduced their commitment to kids TV in the wake of the original TV ban, leaving pubcaster the BBC as the only large-scale commissioner of kids programming in the UK.The new media-wide rules, announced this morning by the UK Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP), come into force in July 2017. Specifically, commercials for HFSS products aimed at under 16s will be prohibited.Some lobby groups have called for the measures to go further and extend to all content that has a large under 16 audience. The CAP notes the new rules do apply to all content where 25% of the audience is children.James BestA UK Department of Health model is used to decide what products qualify as HFSS.“Childhood obesity is a serious and complex issue and one that we’re determined to play our part in tackling,” said James Best, CAP chairman.“These restrictions will significantly reduce the number of ads for high, fat, salt or sugar products seen by children. Our tough new rules are a clear demonstration that the ad industry is willing and ready to act on its responsibilities and puts the protection of children at the heart of its work.”
