Cairo – Mohammed Morsi, who was catapulted from the underground offices of the Muslim Brotherhood to Egypt’s presidency, faces trial on Monday for the killing of protesters, four months after his dramatic fall from power.Egypt’s first democratically elected president, he has been held incommunicado in military custody since the army overthrew him on 3 July after a stormy one-year rule.Remaining defiant since his incarceration, the deposed leader has rejected the authority of the court to try him, as his supporters insist he is still the legitimate president of the Arab world’s most populous nation. Morsi, along with 14 others, face charges of inciting the murder of protesters during clashes between his supporters and opponents outside the presidential palace in December 2012, in which seven people were killed.The trial comes on the heels of a bloody crackdown by Egypt’s military-installed authorities against Morsi’s Islamist supporters.Hundreds were killed in clashes that erupted when security forces dispersed two pro-Morsi camps in August and at least 2 000 people, including the Muslim Brotherhood’s top leadership, have been rounded up in the clampdown.No stranger to prison, Morsi lived a largely clandestine existence through three decades of authoritarian rule by his ousted predecessor, Hosni Mubarak, when the Brotherhood was officially banned.Crippling economic crisisHe was arrested most recently on 28 January 2011, the day after the Brotherhood threw its weight behind the protests against Mubarak.He was then among dozens of Islamist prisoners sprung from jails around the country during the collapse of public order that accompanied the anti-Mubarak revolution.He had already served seven months in 2006 for taking part in a demonstration in support of reformist judges.Morsi was not the Brotherhood’s first choice for president.He was put forward after one of the movement’s powerful financiers, Khairat al-Shater, was disqualified on technical grounds, earning him the nickname “the spare wheel.”He won the presidential election by a sliver, with many choosing him in a protest vote against former air force chief and Mubarak prime minister Ahmed Shafiq.Morsi, whose predecessors as president have all been generals, failed to maintain Egyptians’ unity following the uprising. Critics accused him of putting too much power in the hands of the Brotherhood.His one-year rule was marred by deep polarisation, insecurity, unrest and a crippling economic crisis.President for all Egyptians In the last public remarks before his ouster he acknowledged “many mistakes” which needed “to be corrected” but insisted he was chosen in a “free and fair election”.His words fell on deaf ears.Millions took to the streets on 30 June in response to a grassroots campaign accusing him of breaking his promise to be a “president for all Egyptians” and of failing the ideals of the 2011 revolution.From a rapturous reception given by adoring crowds in Cairo’s Tahrir Square when he was feted as a revolutionary champion in 2012, Morsi came to be disliked by millions.During his presidency, Morsi was put in an uncomfortable position, with recordings emerging of remarks he had made during his days underground that his critics judged as anti-Semitic.Morsi was born in the village of El-Adwah in the Nile Delta province of Sharqiya in 1951, and had been the spokesperson of the Brotherhood from 2010.He graduated with an engineering degree from Cairo University in 1975 and received a doctorate from the University of Southern California, where he was also an assistant professor in 1982.Married with five children and three grandchildren, Morsi first entered the political arena in 2000 when he was elected to parliament as an independent, given the Mubarak-era ban on the Brotherhood.
UN forum urges AsiaPacific nations to band together to fight cybercrimeUN forum urges AsiaPacific nations to band together to fight cybercrimeOctober 11, 2019October 11, 2019
Bringing together 120 participants from 19 countries throughout the Asia-Pacific region, the UN International Telecommunications Union (ITU) forum in Hyderabad aims to reinforce collaboration and development of a harmonized approach to protecting people against the growth of criminal activity on the Internet.Sami Al Basheer Al Morshid, an ITU Director, noted the progress already made in global collaboration through the signing of an agreement between the agency and the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (IMPACT) last year.The agreement with IMPACT makes state-of-the-art cyber-security measures and early warning systems available to 30 ITU member States.“These services allow countries to prepare themselves against cyber threats, while at the same time ensuring coordination and cooperation at the national and international levels,” said Mr. Al Basheer. 23 September 2009The importance of bolstering international cooperation to combat the rising tide of cyber-crime across Asia and the Pacific was underlined by participants of a regional United Nations information and communications technology (ICT) gathering that kicked off in India today.
Security Council extends UN mission in TimorLeste for another yearSecurity Council extends UN mission in TimorLeste for another yearOctober 11, 2019October 11, 2019
24 February 2011The Security Council today extended the mandate of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Timor-Leste for another year so that it can continue to assist the fledgling nation consolidate peace, democracy and the rule of law, as well as support the preparations for the parliamentary and presidential elections planned for 2012. Through a unanimously adopted resolution, the Council decided that the mission, known as UNMIT, will continue its work until 26 February 2012 at current authorized levels. There are presently nearly 1,520 uniformed personnel on the ground, including some 1,480 police, as well as over 1,200 civilian staff and volunteers.The 15-member body also urged all parties in Timor-Leste to continue to work together and engage in political dialogue and to consolidate peace, democracy, rule of law, sustainable social and economic development, protection of human rights and national reconciliation.It reaffirmed the importance of completing capacity-building and reform of the National Police of Timor-Leste (PNTL), including its resumption of primary policing responsibility, and requested UNMIT to support the further development of the force. The PNTL has already resumed responsibilities in 10 out of 13 administrative districts and six units, including the largest district, Viqueque, as well as the Immigration Department, Border Patrol Unit and Interpol Office. The Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Timor-Leste and head of UNMIT, Ameerah Haq, told the Council earlier this week that she is optimistic that the country’s progress can be maintained if all political leaders and the broader public continue to act responsibly. She added that it is promising that so far there has been no significant increase in violence in districts where the PNTL has taken over responsibility, although she voiced concern at the high levels of domestic violence and sporadic fighting among youth and martial arts groups.In the text adopted today, the Council also reaffirmed the importance of UNMIT support to the Government in further building and reforming the justice sector, coordinating international assistance, reducing poverty, improving education and other areas.UNMIT was set up in 2006 after an outbreak of deadly violence to replace several earlier missions in the small South-East Asian country that the world body shepherded to independence in 2002 after it broke away from Indonesia.
BC securities regulator changing crowdfunding rules to help companiesBC securities regulator changing crowdfunding rules to help companiesOctober 8, 2019October 8, 2019
VANCOUVER — The B.C. Securities Commission is changing its crowdfunding exemption rules to enable B.C.-based issuers to access investors in Alberta.The regulator says the changes will also increase the amount that some will be able to invest.The changes increase the limit to $5,000 from $1,500, if an investor has obtained advice from a registered dealer that the investment is suitable for them.Crowdfunding allows businesses to raise small amounts of money from a large number of investors, often for a specific project.The BCSC made the changes after consultations with technology industry stakeholders and businesses earlier this year.
Diplomatic Quartet backs international mechanism to aid Palestinian peopleDiplomatic Quartet backs international mechanism to aid Palestinian peopleOctober 6, 2019October 6, 2019
The “temporary international mechanism” would be limited in scope and duration and operate with full transparency and accountability, the Quartet said in a statement, pledging to review whether it is still needed after three months.“The mechanism facilitates needs-based assistance directly to the Palestinian people, including essential equipment, supplies, and support for health services, support for the uninterrupted supply of fuel and utilities, and basic needs allowances to poor Palestinians.”The statement voiced the Quartet’s hope that other donors, international organizations, and Israel would consider participation in the mechanism. “Donors are also encouraged to respond to humanitarian and other assistance requests by international organizations, especially UN agencies, active in the West Bank and Gaza,” the group noted.The Quartet also reiterated its call for the Palestinian Authority Government to commit to the principles of nonviolence, recognition of Israel, and acceptance of previous agreements and obligations, including the Roadmap. “The Palestinian Authority government must fulfill its responsibilities with respect to basic human needs, including health services, as well as for proper fiscal management and provision of services,” the Quartet said. The mechanism was discussed at a meeting of Quartet principals on 9 May, when they grappled with the problem of deteriorating conditions in the West Bank and Gaza as donors balked at funding a Hamas-led Palestinian Government that has yet to renounce violence.
We’ve had a few weeks to play with Microsoft HoloLens (and you can see my more detailed and technical write-up of the device on PCMag.com). I think it’s a really impressive concept that is coherent and developed enough to prove that it has a future but has some technical hurdles to overcome before it can have a chance with consumers. Its biggest weakness is that the display only takes up a small part of the center of your field of view. Its second biggest weakness is that using it makes you look super crazy.This is what I look like using Microsoft HoloLens. Which means that, if you get a chance to try it, this is what you look like using Microsoft HoloLens.Working with the HoloLens requires two gestures, Bloom and Air-tap. Bloom involves holding your hand, fingers closed and pointed up, and then opening your fingers to make them bloom like a flower. It’s hard to do it without saying, “Magic!” It acts as the HoloLens’ Start button and brings up the Start menu. Air-tap involves holding your index finger out, then bending it down. It registers best when you tap it against your thumb, which makes me want to accompany each Air-tap with “I’m crushing your head!”Both gestures look pretty stupid in front of your face when you’re trying to manipulate objects with the HoloLens. The gestures look completely crazy when someone else sees you trying to manipulate objects with the HoloLens because those objects are completely invisible and can only be seen through the visor.Behold the future of computing!
Keystone XL pipeline WASHINGTON — The long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline cleared a major hurdle toward approval Friday, a serious blow to environmentalists’ hopes that President Barack Obama will block the controversial project running more than 1,000 miles from Canada through the heart of the U.S.The State Department reported no major environmental objections to the proposed $7 billion pipeline, a bone of contention in the political debate over climate change. Republicans and some oil- and gas-producing states in the U.S. — as well as Canada’s minister of natural resources — cheered the report, but it further rankled environmentalists already at odds with Obama and his energy policy.The report stops short of recommending approval of the pipeline, but gives Obama new support if he chooses to endorse it in spite of opposition from many Democrats and environmental groups. Foes say the pipeline would carry “dirty oil” that contributes to global warming, and they also express concern about possible spills.Republicans and business and labor groups have urged Obama to approve the pipeline. The pipeline is also strongly supported by Democratic politicians in oil and gas-producing states.The 1,179-mile pipeline would travel cross Montana and South Dakota, carrying oil derived from tar sands in western Canada to a hub in Nebraska, where it would connect with existing pipelines to carry more than 800,000 barrels of crude oil a day through Kansas and Oklahoma to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast.
Source Interlink Significantly Deleverages BusinessSource Interlink Significantly Deleverages BusinessSeptember 14, 2019September 14, 2019
Source Interlink has reached an agreement with majority investor GoldenTree Asset Management to recapitalize the company. The deal “significantly deleverages” each of the company’s core business units, Source Interlink Media and Source Interlink Distribution, while increasing GoldenTree’s stake in the group.”The tremendously improved capital structure will provide both Source Interlink Media and Source Interlink Distribution with the ability to maximize transformational opportunities across their respective industries,” says Michael Sullivan, president and CEO of Source Interlink, in a statement. “This transaction will put both businesses in better positions to strengthen strategic partnerships and make investments to enhance their position in their respective industries.”Stephanie Justice, executive vice president and chief administrative officer for Source Interlink, tells FOLIO: that there will be no layoffs or reorganization associated with the recapitalization. Justice also notes that the recapitalization was balanced in “an equitable fashion” between the two major divisions. The move comes four years after Source Interlink filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The company—then publically-traded—remerged under private ownership, shedding $1 billion in debt-to-equity swaps with creditors.Sullivan was brought on a year later amidst whispers of a possible sale.”This is a very typical move that most media companies that were acquired by private equity firms in the past 5-7 years are making,” says Reed Phillips, CEO and managing partner of investment firm DeSilva + Phillips, in an email to FOLIO:. “Most of these buyouts were overleveraged and can no longer support the level of debt that was originally put on the businesses, and are thus being restructured. That simply means that debtholders take equity in exchange for reducing the debt load on the company and the equity holders see their positions shrink to the point where many are no longer in control of the business. The net result is that this is very good news for the company because they can start to run their businesses without the constraints they had when the company was overleveraged.” Skateboarder Magazine Shuts DownSkateboarder Magazine killed most of its print circulation to try a digital-first approach in May, but the experiment was short-lived. The 49-year-old title, operated by Source Interlink Media’s enthusiast GrindMedia division, is ceasing regular publication after the release of its current issue. All platforms will be shut down by October 15.Norb Garrett, senior vice president and group publisher at GrindMedia, explained the rationale for the decision in a video on the brand’s website. Garrett blames the skateboarding market rather than the performance of the digital magazine itself.”We’d been, as you have, super stoked on everything we’d been doing digitally with the magazine in the last three issues-growing audience, expanding to over 180 countries-and just done a great job with just leading first with digital,” he says. “So the decision today has nothing to do with whether the digital mag was working or not. It really has everything to do with how the business is, unfortunately. The business, overall, in the skate industry, as you guys all know, is super tough right now.”Despite the challenges posed by the industry however, GrindMedia will continue to publish TransWorld Skateboarding. Garrett hinted at the possibility of special collaborative projects between the two titles in the future.It’s the third time Skateboarder Magazine has shut down—once in late 1960s before coming back in 1975, and then again in the 1980s before returning in 1999.Justice says the decision to close Skateboarder was unrelated to the recapitalization deal.*Editor’s note: This story was updated to include comments from Stephanie Justice.

16GB 1920×1080 3DMark Fire Strike1 of 12Tests notebook graphics performance.Razer Blade Stealth (2018)Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (2018, TB)Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018)Huawei MateBook X ProMicrosoft Surface Laptop 2Category Average (as of 12/31/18) CPU Sherri L. Smith has been cranking out product reviews for Laptopmag.com since 2011. In that time, she’s reviewed more than her share of laptops, tablets, smartphones and everything in between. The resident gamer and audio junkie, Sherri was previously a managing editor for Black Web 2.0 and contributed to BET.Com and Popgadget. Operating System Advertisement Bluetooth Intel Wireless-AC 9560 (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac) Company Website PCIe NVMe M.2 Weight Wi-Fi Model 12 x 8.3 x 0.6 inches Headphone/Mic Touchpad Size Optical Drive Speed The new Razer Blade Stealth ($1,599 reviewed, $1,399 starting) has undergone a slight makeover while retaining the sleekness we’ve come to expect from Razer. But it’s what under the hood that’s the real crowd pleaser, as this is the first Stealth to ship with discrete Nvidia MX150 graphics. That means that you can play mainstream PC games on the go on a system that weighs less than 3 pounds.article continued below But the shock and awe doesn’t stop there. The Stealth is also one of the first laptops shipping with Intel’s new Whiskey Lake chip, giving the slim stunner a significant bump in power while lasting over eight hours on a charge. However, an awkward keyboard is the fly in an otherwise tantalizing jar of ointment. Still, the newest version of the Razer Blade Stealth is worth a serious look. Razer Blade Stealth Price and Configurations I had fun reviewing the $1,599 model of the Razer Blade Stealth, which has a 1.8-GHz Intel Core i7-8565U CPU with 16GB of RAM, a 256GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD, a Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU with 4GB of VRAM, an Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU and a 1920 x 1080 display. If you want to save $200, you can pick up the base mode, l which halves the RAM from 16 to 8GB. But for an additional $300, you can snag a 4K (3840 x 2160) touch panel. Design Even though I really miss the glowing Razer logo, I can’t deny the unbothered elegance of the new Blade Stealth. The lightly embossed tri-snake logo is subtle, drawing you ever closer to the black aluminum lid to admire its stately beauty. Similar to the Blade 15, the edges of the system are rounded ever so slightly. It’s a small detail, but it speaks to the company’s meticulousness, which I appreciate. More obsidian metal goodness awaits when you open the laptop. The keyboard is floating in a sea of the stuff with a positively gigantic touchpad underneath. On either side is a speaker waiting to pump out the jams. The 13.3-inch display resides up top, ensconced in some decidedly slim bezels. If you flip the laptop over, you’ll find a pair of rubber feet running the length of the system’s undercarriage, with a pair of vents that offer a generous view of the twin fans. All that aluminum and a few additional specs put the 12 x 8.3 x 0.6-inch Stealth on the heavier side of the ultraportable scale at 2.9 pounds. It’s on a par with the Huawei MateBook X Pro (2.9 pounds, 12 x 8.5 x 0.6 inches). The Dell XPS 13 9370 (12 x 7.9 x 0.5 inches) and Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 (12.1 x 8.8 x 0.6 inches) are slightly lighter at 2.7 pounds. Ports Reflecting its relatively slim chassis, the Stealth only has few ports to speak of. There’s a USB 3.1 port (tinted green of course) and a Thunderbolt 3 port on either side. The only difference is you get a headset jack on the left. Display The Stealth’s 13.3-inch, 1920 x 1080 screen is bright and vibrant despite its matte, anti-glare coating. When I watched the Captive State trailer, I was impressed at how well the panel captured the richness of actor’s Ashton Sanders mahogany skin as well as his faded orange-red hoodie and the ominous metal collar with its various lights around his neck. Detail was clear enough that I saw the tattered material along the sides of the hoodie as well as the distinct braiding of its drawstrings. Playing Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan was a colorful cavalcade of action. The protagonist’s red ceremony garb seemed to radiate off the screen as they unleashed powerful attacks upon their foes. The detail was sharp enough that you could see the wind blowing through their locs. The Stealth’s 13.3-inch, 1920 x 1080 screen is bright and vivacious despite its matte, anti-glare coating. The display can reproduce 120 percent of the sRGB gamut, just beating the 117-percent achieved by the XPS 13 and the premium laptop average. The MateBook X was only slightly more vivid at 124 percent while the Surface Laptop 2 was hands down the most vivacious at 176 percent. MORE: Laptops with the Best Display Brightness When we measured for brightness, the Stealth averaged 346 nits, which is better than the Surface Laptop 2 (321 nits) and the 320-nit average. But the MateBook Pro proved to be the most scintillating at 458 nits. And a hurrah is definitely in order for the Stealth’s bezels, which are getting slimmer with every iteration. In fact, the bezels are 60 percent thinner than its predecessor. Audio Itty, bitty speakers, surprisingly big sound. Packing four speakers and a smart amplifier, the Stealth easily filled our test space with Janelle Monae’s gender-fluid, afro-futuristic melodies. The snares, hi-hats and bass guitar were nice and clear on “I Like That,” providing the perfect backdrop for the artist’s lilting soprano and rich alto. But like most laptops this size, it lacked the thump necessary to correct produce the low-end, even with the Dolby Atmos software enabled. Keyboard and Touchpad The keyboard on the Razer Blade Stealth is a head-scratcher. I was immediately peeved at the Right Shift, Enter and Backspace keys, which are entirely too short on the island-style keyboard. I would have rather Razer hadn’t included the arrow keys than gone with these shrimpy keys that forced me to be a lot more deliberate with my keystrokes. That considerably showed my typing, dropping my final score to 55 words per minute on the 10fastfingers typing test. It’s way below my usual 70 wpm. I usually ding Razer for their shallow keyboards, but the Stealth has just enough pop for a comfortable, springy experience. That 67 grams of actuation is seriously a godsend, considering the keys only have 0.8 millimeters of travel (1.5mm is our minimum). And like any self-respecting Razer Blade, the Stealth is awash with beautiful Chroma lighting. But this Stealth is a lot more restrained with the light show. Instead of letting you program individual keys with RGB goodness, this version of the Stealth only has one zone, which means that if you change one key’s color, you change them all. It’s not the technicolor scene I’m used to, but it’s still pretty as heck. Besides, you can still program macros and sync the lighting to different games. The Stealth’s 4.3 x 2.8-inch touchpad might not be the biggest I’ve ever used, but it’s in the top ten. The glass Microsoft Precision pad is smooth to the touch, lightning fast and accurate, making it easy to perform three or four-finger swipes along with pinch-zoom. Gaming and Graphics The 2018 version of the Razer Blade Stealth is the first to ship with discrete graphics in addition to its integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU. And although it’s only a Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU, it’s still got much more of a graphical punch than prior models. This ystem doubles the amount of VRAM to 4GB, which gives it an edge against other MX GPUs on the market. But don’t start pulling out those AAA titles just yet. The laptop ran older games like Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands 2 like a dream. But on more taxing titles like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, low frame rates reduced the action to a stuttering mess. But if you adjust your expectations, the Stealth can be a solid gaming machine in a pinch — at least until you get back to your Razer Core or Core X. Still, I was impressed that I could glide around the streets of Gotham in Batman: Arkham Origins at 59 frames per second, just beating bad guys in a whimsical ballet of brutality at 1920 x 1080. When I switched over to Aurion, the hack-and-slash action averaged 62 fps. On the Dirt 3 benchmark, the Blade churned out an impressed 164 fps, which is more than double the 74-fps average. The MateBook Pro, which has its own MX 150 GPU sat in a distant 117 fps while the Intel UHD 620 GPU-powered XPS 13 and Surface Laptop produced 67 and 82 fps. I was impressed that I could glide around the streets of Gotham in Batman: Arkham Origins: at 59 frames per second, just beating bad guys in a whimsical ballet of brutality at 1920 x 1080. Like most gaming laptops, the Stealth switches to its integrated GPU when it’s not performing any graphic intensive tasks. Performance The Stealth is one of the first laptops to ship with Intel’s new Whiskey Lake processors. According to Intel, Whiskey Lake chips are twice as powerful as a 5-year-old Intel CPU. I streamed an episode of Voltron: Legendary Defender on Netflix with 20 additional Google Chrome tabs open, some of which were running Twitch streams, Tweetdeck or YouTube. The Stealth and its 1.8-GHz Intel Core i7-8565U CPU with 16GB of RAM plugged along without a hitch. The Stealth continued to exhibit its winning ways on our synthetic tests, starting by scoring 15,878 on Geekbench 4, which measures overall performance. It easily beat the 12,285 premium laptop average and sailed past the 14,180 and 12,913 obtained by the XPS 13 and MateBook X, which both have Intel Kaby Lake Core i7-8550U CPUs. The laptop also defeated the Surface Laptop 2 (12,676) and its Intel Core i5-8250U CPU. There was a stumble on the Excel Spreadsheet test. The Stealth destroyed the 1 minute 35 second average with a time of 21 seconds. It was much faster than the MateBook X (1:49), Surface Laptop 2 (1:15) and the XPS 13 (1:08). On the File Transfer test, the Stealth’s 256GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD took 20 seconds to duplicate 4.97GB of mixed-media files for a transfer rate of 254 megabytes per second. It was enough to dispatch the Surface Laptop 2 (203 MBps), which has the same amount of storage. The MateBook Pro (512GB PCIe NVMe SSD) hit 282.7 MBps while the XPS (256GB SSD) notched a blistering 508 MBps. MORE: Laptops with the Best Overall Performance During the video transcoding benchmark, the Stealth took 20 minutes and 34 seconds to transcode a 4K video to 1080p, beating the 21:43 average and the MateBook Pro’s time of 27:18. However, the Surface Pro and XPS 13 were faster at 17:30 and 16 minutes flat. Battery Life Traditionally, the biggest flaw of Razer laptops is the battery life. The last Stealth I reviewed tapped out of our battery test at 5 hours and 21 minutes. And with a discrete graphics card in tow, I had all but written this new Stealth off. I’m elated to say I was very wrong to do so. The laptop lasted 8 hours and 5 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery test. It’s short of the 8:22 premium laptop average, but not by much. It’s a great step forward, but Razer still has a ways to go before it can match the competition. The Surface Laptop 2 and MateBook X had times of 9:22 and 9:55, respectively. The 1080p XPS 13 tapped out at 11:59 while its 4K counterpart clocked in at 8:23. After playing Aurion for 15 minutes, I measured key locations on the notebook. The touchpad measured 91 degrees Fahrenheit. The middle of the keyboard and undercarriage reached 105 and 108 degrees, respectively. Both temperatures are above our 95-degree comfort threshold. However, I still used the notebook comfortably in my lap. MORE: Longest Battery Life Laptops The Stealth still proved to be a hot potato even on our less demanding video streaming test where we stream a fullscreen HD YouTube video for 15 minutes. Once the time elapsed the touchpad hit 95 degrees while the center of the keyboard and bottom reached a hot 104 and 110 degrees. Webcam For such a high-quality laptop, I’m surprised that Razer cheaped out on the webcam. The 720p shooter’s images were color accurate, reproducing my brown skin and black-and-white sweater. However, I noticed a lot of fuzziness around the edges, especially my locs, which looked like orangey-brown blobs. Software and Warranty Oh ye of little bloatware! Razer employs a light touch when it comes to software. The Synapse software which allows you to customize the lighting, macros, fan speed and screen refresh rate, is the only company-branded software. The notebook also comes with Nvidia’s GeForce Experience to help enhance your gaming experience with features such as Battery Boost and Game Optimization. Thanks to Windows 10, there is a bit of bloat including Netflix, Drawboard PDF, Fitbit Coach and Candy Crush Saga. The Razer Stealth ships with a one-year limited warranty. See how Razer fared on our annual Tech Support Showdown, Best and Worst Laptop Brands and Best and Worst Gaming Laptop Brands special report. Bottom Line With the new Blade Stealth, Razer finally has a firm foothold in premium ultraportable market. For $1,599, the new Razer Blade Stealth gives you a laptop that sports Intel’s new Whiskey Lake processor along with Nvidia discrete graphics, making it one of the most powerful ultraportables on the market. It’s got excellent audio and a lovely display that’s good for work or play. And Razer’s found a way to significantly improve the battery life over past iterations. However, some of the most important keys on the keyboard are woefully undersized, making typing a chore. You can get the Dell XPS 13 for $1,299, which offers longer battery life, a better display and a seriously comfortable keyboard. But for mobile professionals who want to game on the road on their offtime, the Blade Stealth should sit at the top of their lists.

The International Monetary Fund said it expects Cyprus’s economy to expand 2.7 per cent this year, 2.5 per cent in 2018, and the pace economic expansion to further decelerate as the impact from consumption and investment weakens.“Over the medium term, the pace of growth is expected to gradually ease to just over 2 per cent,” the IMF, which participated in Cyprus’s bailout programme in 2013, said in a statement on its website on Thursday. “Economic growth has been broad-based and reached a robust 2.8 per cent in 2016, supporting a sharp drop in the unemployment rate. Excluding large one-off imports, the current account deficit continued to narrow and earlier gains in price competitiveness have been preserved”.The statement, which reflects the conclusions of the IMF directors following the first post-programme monitoring discussion with Cyprus, said that “an expected pickup in private sector debt servicing and rebuilding of savings buffers, which will trim consumption growth,” and a “gradual dissipation of the current ongoing surge in investment,” will be responsible for the expected economic slowdown in the medium term. The IMF also suggested that Cyprus should resumes reforms included in its bailout terms, which have been left undone.Private consumption, which rose 2.9 per cent last year is expected to drop to 2.3 per cent this year, and 1.7 per cent in 2018, the IMF said. After increasing 26 per cent in 2016, fixed investment is expected to drop 4.5 per cent this year and recover 15 per cent in 2018.By contrast, the finance ministry predicted in April that growth will accelerate to 2.9 per cent next year and 2018, and slow down to 2.7 per cent in 2019 and 2020. Private consumption is expected to increase 2.3 per cent this year and continue at this rate until 2020. Gross fixed capital formation is expected to increase marginally this year before peaking at 6.5 per cent in 2018 and grow 5.2 per cent over 2019 to 2020.Cyprus’s capacity to repay its debt to the Fund is considered “satisfactory,” aided by economic recovery “but subjected to risks,” the IMF said. It added that the IMF directors also welcomed the intention of Finance Minister Harris Georgiades to repay early, part of the roughly €1bn loan received from the Fund thus reducing debt servicing cost.“Nonetheless, to safeguard repayment ability in the event of volatile economic growth and financial shocks, directors urged more ambitious policies to increase policy buffers and reduce private and public sector debt.”Even after the restructuring of private debt gained momentum, progress is slow in reducing non-performing loans in the banking system, roughly half of the banks’ portfolio, the IMF continued.“Directors recommended measures to accelerate the downward paths of nonperforming loans and private sector leverage to strengthen the efficiency of credit allocation, eliminate debt overhangs, protect the adequacy of banks’ capital, and improve the payment culture,” the Fund added, days after Central Bank of Cyprus governor Chrystalla Georghadji said a more effective law on insolvency and foreclosure is needed. “Directors advised formulating tools that incentivize banks to offer sustainable loan workout packages to viable debtors and increase reliance on third-party debt servicers, while also streamlining court procedures for claims settlement and ensuring that regulations encourage timely recognition of losses”.The IMF also recommended resumption of the privatisations programme to reduce public debt — and create a buffer to absorb possible future shocks — in addition to saving fiscal “overperformance and windfall revenues”.“A few directors cautioned, however, that additional fiscal effort could hinder the economic recovery,” the IMF added.“Directors encouraged the authorities to restart macro-critical structural reforms to enhance competition and encourage broad-based investment and economic growth” and to establish “a dedicated commercial court” and strengthening enforcement of commercial claims, the IMF said.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
