FaviconHuawei employees worked with China military on research projects: Bloomberg 27 Jun 2019, 5:24 am

Huawei employees worked with China military on research projects: BloombergHuawei workers teamed up with members of various organs of China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) in projects spanning artificial intelligence to radio communications, Bloomberg said. "Huawei is not aware of its employees publishing research papers in their individual capacity," Huawei spokesman Joe Kelly told Reuters, adding that the company does not have any research and development collaboration or partnerships with PLA-affiliated institutions. Huawei has come under mounting scrutiny for over a year, led by U.S. allegations that "back doors" in its routers, switches and other gear could allow China to spy on U.S. communications.

FaviconUS FAA: Boeing must address new issue on 737 MAX 27 Jun 2019, 5:15 am

US FAA: Boeing must address new issue on 737 MAXUS regulators said Wednesday Boeing must address a new "potential risk" in the Boeing 737 MAX, further clouding the timeframe for resuming service on the planes after two deadly crashes. The Federal Aviation Administration "will lift the aircraft's prohibition order when we deem it is safe to do so," the agency said in an email. Boeing said the software fix for the 737 MAX that it has been developing for the last eight months does not currently address the matter.

FaviconForget the Galaxy Note 10: Samsung is making a more affordable 5G phone 27 Jun 2019, 3:05 am

Forget the Galaxy Note 10: Samsung is making a more affordable 5G phoneThe Galaxy Note 10 is launching soon, complete with a brand new design and a few novel features, but this Samsung flagship will be at least as expensive as the Galaxy S10 series that launched earlier this year. And if you’re gunning for a 5G version of the Note 10, then you’ll have to pay even more. But Samsung is also doing something it hasn’t done before; it’s working on a brand new flagship device that won't be as expensive as the S10 or Note 10. Moreover, this rumored Galaxy A90 phone will deliver 5G connectivity as well as 45W charging speeds -- something that hasn't been available on any Samsung flagship to date. Leaks from the usual suspects say the Galaxy A90 will run on the same Qualcomm processor that powers some of the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 versions, including the 5G models. That’s the Snapdragon 855, of course -- a chip found inside many of this year’s Android flagships. https://twitter.com/OnLeaks/status/1143535173612556288 Both A90 models will also feature 6.7-inch displays with in-display fingerprint sensors, according to @OnLeaks, as well as triple lens cameras. However, the camera specs won’t be identical. Also interesting is that the 5G phone won’t have whatever Tilt optical image stabilization, whereas the 4G version will get it. Unlike the other Samsung flagships, the A90 isn't supposed to feature a front-facing camera. Instead, the triple-lens camera will have a pop-up rotary design which will let you use it for both selfies and regular photos. The other leaker that has referenced the Galaxy A90 in the past is Ice Universe, and he also mentioned the same Snapdragon 855 SoC for the phone: https://twitter.com/UniverseIce/status/1142700778466897921 Previous leaks also claimed that the Galaxy A90 will get 45W fast charging, which is even faster than what the Galaxy S10 can do. We’ve seen conflicting rumors about the Note 10’s battery charging speed, with Ice saying that the Pro version of the phone might still support 45W, while the regular model will only support 25W. That said, we have no idea how much the Galaxy A90 phones will cost or when they’ll be available. The Galaxy Note 10, meanwhile, is expected to hit stores in the second half of August.

FaviconUPDATE 5-U.S. regulator cites new flaw on grounded Boeing 737 MAX 27 Jun 2019, 12:37 am

UPDATE 5-U.S. regulator cites new flaw on grounded Boeing 737 MAXWASHINGTON/SEATTLE, June 26 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has identified a new risk that Boeing Co must address on its 737 MAX before the grounded jet can return to service, the agency said on Wednesday. The risk was discovered during a simulator test last week and it is not yet clear if the issue can be addressed with a software upgrade or will require a more complex hardware fix, sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters. The FAA did not elaborate on the latest setback for Boeing, which has been working to get its best-selling airplane back in the air following a worldwide grounding in March in the wake of two deadly crashes within five months.

FaviconSupreme Court’s Conservative Justices Weigh Scrapping Another Precedent 26 Jun 2019, 9:50 pm

Supreme Court’s Conservative Justices Weigh Scrapping Another Precedent(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative majority may be ready to overturn a longstanding precedent for the third time in recent weeks -- perhaps foreshadowing the vulnerability of its rulings on abortion rights.The justices will rule as early as Wednesday on a business-backed bid to overturn decades-old decisions that give federal agencies broad power to say what their regulations mean.The case is one of eight rulings due before the justices’ term ends this week. The court also plans to rule on gerrymandered voting maps and the Trump administration’s bid to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.Another precedent-toppling ruling would extend a pattern that already has liberal justices sounding alarms. They’ve hinted that the five conservative justices may be eyeing the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, which legalized abortion nationwide.“Today’s decision can only cause one to wonder which cases the court will overrule next,” dissenting Justice Stephen Breyer wrote last month when the court overruled a 1979 precedent to say that states are immune from private suits in another state’s courts.“Well, that didn’t take long,” Justice Elena Kagan wrote 39 days later when the court overturned part of a 1985 ruling and said people could go directly to federal court to claim that a government regulation unconstitutionally took private property without compensation. “Now one may wonder yet again.”Both of those were 5-4 decisions, with Chief Justice John Roberts and the other Republican appointees -- Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh -- in the majority.Ducking AbortionSo far, the court has largely sidestepped the explosive topic of abortion. In May, the court turned away Indiana’s bid to bar abortions based on a fetus’s race or gender or a risk of genetic disorder -- an appeal that could have raised new doubts about Roe. The justices did uphold a separate Indiana law requiring clinics to bury or cremate fetal remains.The court could provide new signals about its intentions on abortion this week. The justices are due to say whether they’ll consider Alabama’s effort to ban the most common method used for women in their second trimester of pregnancy.The court under Roberts has actually overturned precedents at a slower rate than previous courts, says Jonathan Adler, a constitutional law professor at Case Western Reserve School of Law. Before this term started, the Roberts court had issued only 13 rulings that overturned a precedent, according to data from the Government Printing Office, he says.But Roberts, who took his seat in 2005, has never had a conservative majority as reliable as the one he got when the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to succeed the retired Anthony Kennedy.“It is certainly possible either that the court may become more aggressive going forward or that the cases in which the court reconsiders precedents will have a greater ideological uniformity,” Adler said.Adler is among those urging the court to overturn a 1997 ruling, Auer v. Robbins, that requires judges to defer to a federal agency’s interpretation of its own regulations, as long as its approach is reasonable.Business groups say that ruling, along with a related 1945 decision, leads to onerous and unpredictable rules and leaves companies vulnerable to penalties when an agency shifts its thinking. Defenders of the rulings say they give agencies flexibility to account for changing circumstances.Religion and GerrymandersThe regulation, property-rights and sovereign-immunity cases are among the four appeals this term that squarely asked the justices to topple at least one precedent.The fourth one split the court in an unusual way last week. The court had been asked to overturn a rule that lets states and the federal government file separate criminal charges over the same conduct without violating the Constitution’s ban on double jeopardy.The court refused on a 7-2 vote, reaffirming precedents dating to the middle of the 19th century. Alito’s majority opinion said the case for keeping precedents “grows in proportion to their antiquity.” An unlikely pair of justices -- Gorsuch and liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg -- dissented.Three other cases have raised questions about precedents, though less directly. In backing hunting rights in Wyoming for the Crow Indian Tribe, a majority that included the four liberals and Gorsuch said an 1896 ruling had previously been “repudiated.”In ruling last week that a 40-foot cross could remain in a Maryland public intersection as a war memorial, a majority of justices criticized, without overruling, a 1971 decision that set up a three-part test for assessing whether government support for religion goes too far.And the gerrymandering cases could topple a 1986 ruling that said voting maps could be challenged as too partisan, though the justices in that case couldn’t agree on a standard for doing so. Paul Clement, the lawyer defending a Republican-drawn North Carolina congressional map, told Roberts during arguments in March that the court might need to overturn that ruling.‘Jolt to the System’At the center of it all is Roberts, who said in his 2005 Senate confirmation hearing that overruling a precedent is a “jolt to the legal system.” He has tended to take a multi-step approach toward questioning a precedent, signaling concern in a preliminary case before voting to overturn it altogether.“His favorite methodology seems to be to essentially chip away at cases in various steps so that the day that the case is actually overruled it’s really not even news, it’s been coming for a couple of years,” Clement said last month at a symposium co-hosted by the conservative Heritage Foundation and Bradley Foundation.Writing the majority opinion in the property-rights case last week, Roberts said the 1985 Williamson County v. Hamilton Bank ruling relied on “exceptionally ill-founded reasoning,” had been repeatedly criticized by justices over the years and had proven “unworkable in practice.”It’s still too early to judge how Roberts will act toward precedents now that he has a stronger conservative majority, Adler said.“Like a lot of people I’m curious if the chief is going to become more aggressive, but I’m not willing to say that we can be sure of that yet,” said Adler.To contact the reporter on this story: Greg Stohr in Washington at gstohr@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Joe Sobczyk at jsobczyk@bloomberg.net, Laurie Asséo, John HarneyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

FaviconOklahoma woman caught on own CCTV camera firebombing and shooting into neighbour’s home 26 Jun 2019, 7:56 pm

Oklahoma woman caught on own CCTV camera firebombing and shooting into neighbour’s homeAn Oklahoma woman was arrested after being caught on camera firing gunshots and throwing a lit towel into her next door neighbour's home. Firefighters were called to the burning property in Del City on June 10th, responding to 911 calls that reported flames coming from the garage door.Having contained the blaze, fire investigators learned there was an ongoing conflict between the owner of the burnt home and the next door neighbour, Annie Durham, 59.Shocking footage of the incident was captured on CCTV, showing Durham firing two shots into the side of the home before throwing a flaming object into the door, setting the house ablaze.The video released by the Del City Fire Department came from the accused woman’s own surveillance camera.According to the fire department, Durham was initially resistant to giving up the footage, claiming the camera had not been switched on.However, it was eventually obtained with the help of the City Police Department’s Computer Forensic Division.Durham was arrested on Monday June 17 and is charged with second degree arson and discharge of a firearm into a dwelling.

FaviconOppo's Under-Display Camera Is the Best Notch Killer Yet 26 Jun 2019, 7:44 pm

Oppo's Under-Display Camera Is the Best Notch Killer YetAfter weeks of hinting and teasing, Oppo has now showed off its under-display selfie camera. And it seems to be living up to Oppo’s promises.Credit: OppoMWC Shanghai, the cousin of the Barcelona-based MWC, is the place where Oppo finally unveiled its new tech, officially called ‘under-screen camera’ (via TechRadar). When you’re not using the camera, the screen just acts as a screen, although the image quality in the area surrounding the camera is noticeably worse, due to the different structure that’s required to have both the camera and the display on top of each other.The camera concealed beneath the display has been fitted with a particularly wide aperture and large sensor, in order to still get bright enough images despite the screen being in its way.MORE: Samsung Will Release Foldable Galaxy Clamshell Just Like The Razr (Report)In terms of image quality, it’s apparently not great, losing out on resolution and clarity compared to normal cameras. But it’s still got some time before it’s added to production phones. The aim is to have it on users’ devices ‘in the near future’, according to a quote given to Engadget.Credit: OppoOppo has been experimenting with front camera locations for a while, even skipping over the punch-hole to try a pop-up mechanism on the Find X, and a pivoting pop-up version on the newly released Reno. This is just the next step.Oppo already has competition, though. Xiaomi has also been working on under-display camera tech, announcing it on the same day as Oppo. So while Oppo has the honor of taking first place in the battle to make an under-display camera, the contest for the best one is still to be fought. * Galaxy Fold 2 Will Reportedly Have 8-inch Screen and S Pen * FedEx Sues Trump Administration Over Huawei Shipping Fiasco * Galaxy Note 10 5G Looks Gorgeous In New Renders

FaviconApple Reportedly Cancels Major iPhone 11 Camera Upgrade 26 Jun 2019, 7:43 pm

Apple Reportedly Cancels Major iPhone 11 Camera UpgradeApple has reportedly scrapped plans to include a next-generation, quantum dot image sensor in this year’s iPhone, according to The Telegraph.Cupertino was reportedly working with U.K.-based Nanoco, a company that’s invested heavily in the research and development around quantum dot applications. It was never explicitly disclosed that Nanoco had a contract with Apple, though last year the supplier did say it had entered into an agreement with a "large, undisclosed U.S. listed corporation," and that the deal was worth nearly $22 million. You’ve likely heard of quantum dot technology referenced in relation to the latest 4K TVs, monitors and mobile displays. Apple was reportedly investigating using it to power Apple Watch’s tiny screen, and may still eventually. The prime benefit is purity and accuracy of color, and that applies to imaging as well.MORE: Beyond iPhone 11: Apple Needs to Make These 5 Big UpgradesEventually, Apple and its competitors will likely start employing quantum dot technology at a large scale. But as for right now, you won’t see it underpin the cameras in upcoming iPhones. The Telegraph reports that the technology may have debuted in Apple’s new handsets arriving "as soon as this year," though we don’t precisely know the timeframe at work here.When Nanoco announced late last week that its unnamed client abandoned the project, the firm’s valuation took a nosedive, plunging from to £94 million to £24 million.While it’s somewhat disappointing that 2019’s iPhone may not bring about a major shift in camera hardware, Apple is still a leader in mobile imaging right now — even if Google and Huawei have one-upped it recently. The successor to the iPhone XS has been rumored to feature a trio of cameras, and while we're not entirely sure what the additional lens in this year's device might do, we have heard that the 2020 iteration will employ a 3D, laser-scanning sensor. Today's quantum dot news doesn’t doom the next iPhone’s photography capabilities, though it might delay innovation down the line. * New iPhone 11 Renders Show Lame Lightning Port Instead of USB-C * Samsung Will Release Foldable Galaxy Clamshell Just Like The Razr * The World's First Under-Display Phone Camera Is Coming June 26

FaviconU.A.E. Splits With U.S. Over Blame for Oil Tanker Attack in May 26 Jun 2019, 3:53 pm

U.A.E. Splits With U.S. Over Blame for Oil Tanker Attack in May(Bloomberg) -- The United Arab Emirates appeared to distance itself from U.S. claims that pinned attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz on Iran.“Honestly we can’t point the blame at any country because we don’t have evidence,” Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan said on Wednesday in Moscow. “If there is a country that has the evidence, then I’m convinced that the international community will listen to it. But we need to make sure the evidence is precise and convincing.”While an investigation by the U.A.E., Norway and Saudi Arabia concluded that a “state actor” was most likely behind the incident in May, no nation was singled out. Still, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton has said that Iran was almost certainly responsible.The attack predated the pair of strikes in the Gulf of Oman this month that the U.S. has also blamed on Iran. Vessels were targeted off the U.A.E. coast in May as they made their way toward the Strait of Hormuz, the world’s foremost oil shipping chokepoint.Iran’s foreign minister has labeled Bolton and the leaders of the U.A.E., Israel and Saudi Arabia as the “B-team” that’s prodding President Donald Trump into going to war with the Islamic Republic. Trump slapped new sanctions on Tehran this week.With tensions on the rise across the Middle East, the U.A.E.’s top diplomat tried to change tack after talks in Moscow with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.“We are in a region that is tense and important for the world and we don’t want more tension,” said Sheikh Abdullah.\--With assistance from Zainab Fattah and Verity Ratcliffe.To contact the reporter on this story: Abbas Al Lawati in Dubai at aallawati6@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Shaji Mathew at shajimathew@bloomberg.net, Paul Abelsky, Mark WilliamsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

FaviconNRA shuts down production at TV channel amid leadership coup attempt and legal troubles 26 Jun 2019, 3:04 pm

NRA shuts down production at TV channel amid leadership coup attempt and legal troublesThe National Rifle Association has shut down production at NRA TV.The NRA on Tuesday also severed all business with its estranged advertising firm, Ackerman McQueen, which operates NRA TV, the NRA’s live broadcasting media arm, according to interviews and documents reviewed by The New York Times.While NRA TV may continue to air past content, its live broadcasting will end and its on-air personalities – Ackerman employees who included Dana Loesch — will no longer be the public faces of the NRA.It remained unclear whether the NRA might try to hire some of those employees, but there was no indication it was negotiating to do so.The move comes amid a flurry of lawsuits between the NRA and Ackerman, and increasing acrimony that surfaced after two prominent NRA board members first criticised NRA TV in an article in The Times in March. The separation had become inevitable: The two sides said last month that they were ending their three-decade-plus partnership.“Many members expressed concern about the messaging on NRA TV becoming too far removed from our core mission: defending the Second Amendment,” Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s longtime chief executive, wrote in a message to members that was expected to be sent out by Wednesday.“So, after careful consideration, I am announcing that starting today, we are undergoing a significant change in our communications strategy. We are no longer airing ‘live TV’ programming.”In a notice to Ackerman’s chief executive, Revan McQueen, sent on Tuesday night, the NRA said it “regrets that a long-standing, formerly productive relationship comes to an end in this fashion.”Ackerman, in its own statement, said it was “not surprised that the NRA is unwilling to honour its agreement to end our contract and our long-standing relationship in an orderly and amicable manner.”“When given the opportunity to do the right thing, the NRA once again has taken action that we believe is intended to harm our company even at the expense of the NRA itself,” the company added.It said it “will continue to fight against the NRA’s repeated violations of its agreement with our company with every legal remedy available to us.”The development is the latest in what has been a tumultuous year for the NRA. It has struggled to right its finances; faced investigations in Congress and by Letitia James, the New York attorney general; and witnessed a leadership struggle that pitted Oliver North, the NRA’s former president, against Mr LaPierre.Last week, The Times reported that the NRA had suspended Christopher W Cox, its longtime second-in-command, after a legal filing by the NRA implicated him in a failed plot to oust Mr LaPierre. Mr Cox has strongly rejected such allegations.NRA officials had grown leery of the cost of creating so much live content for NRA TV, which was started in 2016, and wondered whether it was worth the return on its investment. The site’s web traffic was minuscule, with 49,000 unique visitors in January, according to a report provided by comScore.Some NRA board members and officials were also unnerved by the breadth of its content, which strayed far beyond gun rights and encompassed several right-wing talking points, including criticism of immigration and broadsides against the FBI. A show hosted by Ms Loesch that put Ku Klux Klan hoods on talking trains from the popular children’s programme Thomas & Friends drew outrage from some within the organisation.But the dispute between the NRA and Ackerman goes deeper than NRA TV. It has its origins in threats by Ms James last summer to investigate the NRA’s tax-exempt status. The NRA began an audit of its contractors, and has said that Ackerman, which was paid roughly $40m (£31.5m) annually by the NRA, refused to comply. Ackerman has disputed that allegation.Ackerman has assailed the role of the NRA’s outside attorney, William A Brewer III, over the size of his legal fees, and has seen him as its chief antagonist. The contention has a bitter family twist because Mr Brewer is the brother-in-law of Mr McQueen, Ackerman’s chief executive.The schism between the organisations has been shocking. They had a closely intertwined partnership going back to the “I’m the NRA” campaign in the 1980s, and Ackerman came to be known as the voice of the NRA.But by Tuesday night, splitting up was seen as inevitable.“This is just an affirmation of what we’ve known is going to happen,” said Joel Friedman, an NRA board member.The New York Times

FaviconAre these your ‘animals’, Mr Trump? Photo of drowned father and daughter at US border illustrates ultimate human cost of president’s attitude towards families desperately seeking a better life 26 Jun 2019, 2:24 pm

Are these your ‘animals’, Mr Trump? Photo of drowned father and daughter at US border illustrates ultimate human cost of president’s attitude towards families desperately seeking a better lifeA 23-month-old girl lies face down in the waters of the Rio Grande, tucked into her father’s black t-shirt. Her arm is draped around his neck, suggesting she died clutching his body.The image of the bodies of Oscar Alberto Martinez Ramirez and his daughter Valeria have prompted outrage across Mexico and the US, further highlighting the plight faced by Central American migrants hoping to claim asylum in America.Mr Ramirez crossed the river which separates the neighbouring on Sunday, carrying his child, according to La Jornada, a Mexican newspaper.The 26-year-old placed the girl on the US bank of the river and started to return to the other side, to fetch his wife, when his daughter jumped after him.Mr Martinez caught hold of Valeria, but both were swept away by the current. The pair were found dead shortly afterwards.Amid tears and screams, Tania Vanessa Avalos, Mr Ramirez’s wife, reportedly described the drowning to police officers at the scene.The family fled their home in El Salvador on 3 April and lived for around two months in a shelter in Tapachula, near Mexico’s border with Guatemala.Mr Ramirez decided to swim across the river after reportedly growing frustrated over the family’s inability to present themselves to US border authorities and formally request asylum.A Mexican state official said the family visited the US consulate in the city of Matamoros early on Sunday.Asylum claims in the US can take months and years to process. It is unclear what occurred at the consulate but the family decided to cross the river later that day.“When the girl jumped in is when he tried to reach her, but when he tried to grab the girl, he went in further ... and he couldn’t get out,” Rosa Ramirez, the 26-year-old’s mother, said. “He put her in his shirt, and I imagine he told himself, ‘I’ve come this far’ and decided to go with her.”Ms Ramirez is in El Salvador and spoke to her daughter-in-law on the phone after the drownings.“I begged them not to go, but he wanted to scrape together money to build a home,” she said.“They hoped to be there a few years and save up for the house.”The Independent has taken the decision to publish the image in an effort to illustrate the human cost of the Trump administration's approach towards immigration and those families desperately attempting to enter the country in search of a better life.Mexican newspapers have compared the image of the father and daughter to a 2015 photograph of Alan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian boy who drowned in the Mediterranean.“Very regrettable that this would happen,” Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the Mexican president, said.“We have always denounced that as there is more rejection in the United States, there are people who lose their lives in the desert or crossing [the river]”.Mexico has attempted to work with the Trump administration on the migrant crisis, which has been fuelled by people fleeing unrest and violence in Central America.The Trump administration’s immigration policy has dramatically reduced the number of migrants who are allowed to request asylum, down from dozens per day previously to sometimes just a handful at some ports of entry. “With greater crackdowns and restrictions,” said Cris Ramon, senior immigration policy analyst at the Bipartisan Policy Center think tank in Washington, “we could see more desperate measures by people trying to enter Mexico or the US.”Mr Trump himself has frequently used demonising language when talking of immigrants - not least those crossing the US-Mexico border \- employing terms such as "animals", "stone cold criminals" and "bad hombres" who he has described as "infesting our country".A series of Democratic candidates hoping to face Mr Trump in the 2020 presidential race spoke out in response to the photo.Beto O'Rourke said "Trump is responsible for these deaths", while Cory Booker also sought to link the deaths to the president's policies, saying: "These are the consequences of Donald Trump’s inhumane and immoral immigration policy. This is being done in our name."Kamala Harris said: "That is inhumane. Children are dying. This is a stain on our moral conscience."In 2018 283 migrants died crossing between ports of entry.Mr Ramirez and Valeria’s bodies will be flown to El Salvador on Thursday.There was no immediate comment on the tragedy from the Trump administration.Additional reporting by agencies
