first_imgLegendary opening batsman and former India captain Sunil Gavaskar, speaking at Aaj Tak Salaam Cricket 2017 , said the modern player does not give a damn about what appears in the media and what commentators are saying about them because they are just keen on improving their own game.”The modern player does not give a damn about what appears in the media, he does not about give a damn about what the commentators are saying  – they are so focussed on improving their game.”All these things which are appearing in the papers does not make an iota of difference. They know if they do not do well, they will be out of the team,” Gavaskar said .One of the most respected minds in world cricket now, Gavaskar is a popular commentator and his insights on the game are listened to with great intent by players all around the world.Gavaskar revealed that Indian players dread off days because that is when sometimes untrue stories come out. Despite his strong views on the apparent views between Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble, he said maybe the story itself could be a fabric of somebody’s imagination.”I have been covering Indian cricket for a while now. What Indian players dread are the off days – when there is no cricket, then such stories come out.”Then anything else can come up. Not sure how true these reports of differences are or if they are part of somebody’s imagination. There’s a big game coming up vs Pakistan and it will decide which way the Indian team heads this tournament.”advertisement Also Read: Salaam Cricket 2017: Differences between captain, coach common everywhere due to generation gap, says Sunil Gavaskar Also Watch:last_img read more

first_img Continue Reading Previous Rohde & Schwarz: moveable over-the-air test chamber for 5G antennas and transceiversNext ADLINK and MECSware to demonstrate Private LTE at Mobile World Congress Densitron has launched its new single board computer appropriately named “Aurora SBX” along with its extremely versatile application-specific software. Aurora SBX combines with and supports a variety of Densitron displays to provide a Human Machine Interface (HMI) package. Designed specifically to drive various displays from within Densitron’s vast range – with PCT multitouch or haptic input and up to full HD resolution – and to fit within a 5” display outline, the package provides an out-of-the-box, development-ready solution which can be integrated without substantial development resources.Aurora SBX is a small form factor embedded board based on ARM Cortex-A9 architecture and built on the NXP i.MX6 application processor family, providing low-cost, efficient power usage and heat dissipation, making it suitable for any application across a range of markets from consumer to industrial. In addition, it is possible for the SBC to be tailored to the customers’ requirements by providing different configurations of its main components. Its main strength, however, is the seamless interaction of the HMI package components and display support, creating a development-friendly and stable environment for HMI applications.The SBC, in combination with a display, provides the main building block to drive the interface between the user and the system. In addition, Densitron provides stable software and development tools to build and run a graphics-rich GUI to present system information and provide input via touchscreen or other devices. Possible applications include control or input panels for a number of appliances and machines: status and alarm displays (e.g. as part of an industrial PLC or SCADA system), home automation, information panels, digital signage, security and many others.Aurora SBX can also be used independently without a display (as a ‘headless’ device) becoming a link (controller or server) between various subsystems, gathering, storing and/or transmitting data, as well as communicating with subsystems and embedded devices using numerous supported interfaces.In parallel with the launch of Aurora SBX, Densitron has also released a development kit which includes everything needed to quickly setup and start the board, a choice of Linux and Android BSPs to run it, and a USB stick containing a preconfigured development virtual machine with Qt ecosystem which provides a complete application and GUI development environment. Together with a variety of Densitron Display Adapters, this kit will kick start the development of the end user’s application.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Boards & Modules last_img read more

first_imgThe 23rd staging of the island’s premier tourism trade show, Jamaica Product Exchange (JAPEX), got underway at the Montego Bay Convention Centre Sunday, April 28, with hundreds of local and international participants.Minister of Tourism and Entertainment, Hon. Dr. Wykeham McNeill, who addressed the opening, said the large turnout of buyers, suppliers, travel agents and media practitioners from the traditional and emerging markets, which is one of the most impressive in recent times, shows that JAPEX remains a vital institution for Jamaica’s tourism sector.“The growing interest in and attendance at JAPEX of this number of international delegates, not only underscores the fact that JAPEX remains a vital institution for the tourism sector, but is also proof of the attractiveness of our tourism product and the strength of brand Jamaica in the international marketplace,” he stated.He mentioned the “very strong” representation from the United States of America (USA), Canada, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom, and the good showing from the non-traditional and new markets. “Given our efforts at the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) to penetrate these markets, I am particularly pleased to be able to welcome the large number of delegates from Latin America, as well as Europe, including representatives from countries such as Russia, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Ireland, and the Czech Republic. We also have a contingent of some 24 media representatives from the USA, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean,” he stated.Dr. McNeill commended the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA) and the JTB for their “tremendous” work in organising the annual event and “for once again, bringing together, some of our most vital tourism partners.”“I would also like to commend the JHTA for its outstanding work in championing the cause for players in the sector and for its unwavering support for crucial initiatives being undertaken by the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment. This synergistic relationship continues to foster the sustainable development of the tourism sector from the resort level,” Dr. McNeill stated.On Monday and Tuesday, April 30, wholesalers and tour operators will meet face-to-face with close to 150 of Jamaica’s leading tourism suppliers on the convention floor, to conduct business negotiations.By Glenis A.
