Berlin, Nov 29 (AFP) Schalke have reached the last 16 of the Champions League, but their progress to the knock-out stages did not stop travelling fans booing their team’s dismal 3-1 defeat at Porto.German fans celebrated before kick-off in the Portuguese city on Wednesday when Lokomotiv Moscow’s 2-0 win over Galatasary meant both Schalke and Porto were through to the last 16 from Group D.However, the mood soured after Schalke were well beaten by Porto as the Germans only had a late Nabil Bentaleb penalty to show and their fans voiced their disappointment over a dismal away display.”It’s hard for us when the fans are upset, but we need to understand their reasons,” said defensive midfielder Omar Mascarell.Schalke were floored as Porto netted two second-half goals in quick succession, as Brazilian defender Eder Militao struck in the 52nd minute and Jesus Corona three minutes later. Moussa Marega hit a third late for the hosts in added time.The German fans whistled and booed their team off the pitch and sports director Christian Heidel was surprised given their passage into the last 16.”You always have the right to express resentment, but we have qualified for the last 16 – I just don’t get it,” he said.The mood of the disgruntled fans was made worse as the team did not acknowledge the travelling support after the final whistle.”They came a long way to get here,” said midfielder Alessandro Schoepf.”One could have gone to thank them in the stands, that is all about respect.”advertisementSchalke’s injury-hit attack failed to manage a single shot on goal in the opening 45 minutes while Porto ripped the Royal Blues defence apart after the break.Only good saves by Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Faehrmann kept the visitors in the game.However, Schalke deserve some sympathy in the face of a crippling injury list with five forwards injured.Guido Burgstaller was missing in Porto with an Achilles tendon problem, then right winger Steven Skrzybski had to be replaced at half-time with a shoulder injury whileMark Uth, Breel Embolo and Cedric Teuchert are all sidelined long term.”I have never heard of a Bundesliga team having five forwards injured at the same time,” grumbled Heidel, who hopes to have Burgstaller and Skrzybski back from injury before Saturday’s away match at Hoffenheim.Schalke have lost only one of their five games so far in Europe, but are just four points clear of the bottom three in the Bundesliga after seven defeats in 12 games.

It follows the 2.4 per cent recorded in December 2018 and is 1.5 per cent lower than the 4.8 per cent out-turn for January 2018. The Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) is reporting that inflation fell to 2.3 per cent in January 2019. The decline is the second consecutive out-turn falling below the four to six per cent target range, Bank of Jamaica (BOJ) Governor, Brian Wynter, has said. The Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) is reporting that inflation fell to 2.3 per cent in January 2019.The decline is the second consecutive out-turn falling below the four to six per cent target range, Bank of Jamaica (BOJ) Governor, Brian Wynter, has said.It follows the 2.4 per cent recorded in December 2018 and is 1.5 per cent lower than the 4.8 per cent out-turn for January 2018.The Governor provided the details at the Central Bank’s quarterly media briefing at the BOJ Auditorium in downtown Kingston, on Thursday (February 21).“Inflation continues to be influenced by the lagged impact of the fall in international oil prices last year and unseasonably high supplies of agricultural items, which, starting in December 2018, caused a sharp fall in agricultural food prices. The lower international oil prices led to lower cost for electricity, water, sewerage and petrol,” Mr. Wynter indicated.The Governor said inflation is projected to increase close to five per cent in the April to June quarter.This out-turn, he pointed out, is expected to be spurred by rising food prices as agricultural supplies fall back to “normal levels”.“Higher inflation is also expected to come from increases in prices for processed foods, energy and transport services driven by the uptick in oil prices,” the Governor added.Mr. Wynter, however, cited the potential risk of inflation falling below the four to six per cent target again over the first part of the 2019/20 fiscal year, “given the large seasonal increases and reductions that we have been seeing in agricultural supplies and prices”.He said the medium-term forecast is for inflation to “rise slowly” to the midpoint of the target.The Governor further indicated that this forecast path is lower than that discussed in late 2018, “when we anticipated a faster rise towards the midpoint of the target”.“The revised outlook reflects a more moderate pace of expansion in domestic demand because of a somewhat lower projected growth rate in the global economy and also a smaller increase in crude-oil prices compared to what we had expected in November,” he added.Meanwhile, Mr. Wynter advised that the BOJ will shortly provide Finance and Public Service Minister, Dr. the Hon. Nigel Clarke, with an explanation for the deviation from the inflation target.This, he said, is a requirement of the BOJ, adding that “it is expected that the exchange of correspondence will be made available to the public in due course”.

Story Highlights Despite the fact that midwives have been around for centuries, for some persons, they remain for an unheralded group of professionals. Despite the fact that midwives have been around for centuries, for some persons, they remain for an unheralded group of professionals.However, midwife at the Darliston Health Centre in Westmoreland, Sateree Howell, says the profession continues to grow and, with it, the significant demand for its members’ services.She tells JIS News that midwives are specialist nurses who manage the reproductive health of women, particularly expectant mothers, from the time they conceive until they deliver.Additionally, Ms. Howell says midwifes promote contraceptive services, perform basic cancer screenings such as pap smears and breast examinations, pointing out that “we are trained to recognize any deviation from the norm and manage them accordingly”.Midwives are often the ones on the frontline, administering the delivery of medical care to expectant mothers, and the Ministry of Health, through the Programme for the Reduction of Maternal and Child Mortality (PROMAC), has been doing its part to ensure that they (midwives) are well equipped to do their jobs.Globally, an estimated 358,000 women succumb to pregnancy-related issues annually, with 90 per cent of these occurrences taking place in developing countries.Data also shows that 75 per cent of these deaths occur during childbirth or in the postpartum period.However, Health Minister, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, notes that when women have access to quality reproductive health care, including skilled attendance at birth, the majority of maternal deaths are avoidable.In 2013, the Government of Jamaica and European Union (EU) signed a $3 billion (22 million Euros) agreement to support the development of PROMAC, which aims to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health.This programme, according to Dr. Tufton, “is important because it focuses on a very critical aspect of public health… not just one that challenges us here in Jamaica in our own public health framework, but (also) globally (as) every one to two minutes, there is at least one death somewhere in the world related to some maternal issues”.The project has seen well needed improvements to hospitals and health centres through high dependency units.Additionally, it addresses capacity and knowledge gaps in the health sector through the training of health professionals, research and institutional strengthening.Another very important feature of PROMAC is its interventions at the community level to improve health care delivery.Recently, 150 fully equipped midwifery bags were presented to the island’s regional health authorities.These provisions are among recent achievements for PROMAC, which is designed to improve the management of high-risk pregnancies at both the tertiary and primary care levels of the public health system, and promote and influence a positive approach by persons to maternal and child health.PROMAC’s other notable achievements include: the deployment of six ambulances to six primary health care centres: the Mandeville, St. Jago, Annotto Bay, and Savanna-la-Mar health centres, as well as the Chapleton and Alexandria community hospitals.These facilities are also slated to receive radiographic and ultrasound equipment soon.Deputy Director General of the Planning Institute of Jamaica, Barbara Scott, who spoke at the handing over ceremony for the midwifery bags, noted that these inputs are intended to assist in providing care outside of the formal health care setting so that expectant mothers whose pregnancies regarded as high risk will be able to receive checkups closer to home.According to Dr. Tufton, the donation marks an “important step” in Jamaica’s drive to improve health outcomes for the nation’s mothers and children. This, he says, by ensuring that women have access to skilled and resourced attendance at birth.This underscores, the importance of Midwives and the role they play throughout the health sector.Nurse Howell points out that there are two categories of midwives – the community midwife and hospital midwife.She explains that community midwives are trained to operate in primary health care, are assigned to clinics and do home deliveries.She says their core functions at health centres entail providing preventative obstetrics care, while adding that hospital midwives primarily work at tertiary health facilities where they carry out the delivery of babies.There is, however, a shortage of midwives which the authorities have been working to rectify.The Ministry, in this regard, offers a free two-year certification training programme for persons up to 40 years old, who may be interested in entering the profession.The programme is offered through training facilities at the Spanish Town Hospital and Victoria Jubilee Hospital, in addition to the Kingston School of Nursing and Midwifery, and Cornwall Regional School of Nursing and Midwifery.Interested persons over 40 are required to complete a mature entrance examination.Despite the shortage, however, Nurse Howell says the county of Cornwall continues to outshine the others in terms of its low maternal mortality rate.This, she says, is something the group of 54 midwives who operate in the western region hope to maintain, as they continue to promote and work towards achieving a reduction in child mortality and improving maternal health care, which were two of the targets under the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.For Ms. Howell, being a midwife is a very fulfilling job that entails much more than delivering babies.“Persons who are trained as midwives can operate birth units, can work with a private practitioner who has his/her own birthing unit, or she can set up her own birthing practice because you are registered and licensed,” she outlines.Ms. Howell describes the engagement as the “complete package” in dealing with expectant mothers from the time they conceive.“You (get to) know the baby (and) the (mother as) you are there with them (for an extended period). She comes to the antenatal clinic, she delivers (and) you are seeing her for the rest of her time (spent in the health centre). So it’s (fulfilling as) a career if you are a people person,” she says. PROMAC’s other notable achievements include: the deployment of six ambulances to six primary health care centres: the Mandeville, St. Jago, Annotto Bay, and Savanna-la-Mar health centres, as well as the Chapleton and Alexandria community hospitals. Data also shows that 75 per cent of these deaths occur during childbirth or in the postpartum period.
9 June 2009The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has signed an agreement with the organizers of the 2014 Sochi Olympics in Russia to make the Games environmentally friendly. In addition to advising on “greening” the Olympics, UNEP will also organize education programmes and a series of conferences to allow international experts to monitor and analyze key environmental indicators before and after the Games, a UNEP press announcement said. The Sochi Olympic organizers are also planning to invest $1.75 billion in energy conservation and renewable energy to offset the remaining greenhouse gas emissions from the use of electricity, air travel and ground transportation. Other environmental initiatives include the development of “green belts” in the city and reforestation of the Sochi National Park.The Games’ organizers had previously agreed to a UNEP suggestion to move the bobsleigh and luge tracks away from the Caucasus nature reserve, which is one of the only mountain areas in Europe that remains virtually untouched by human activity.The organizers commemorated the signing of the agreement by planting trees in several locations in Russia as part of UNEP’s Billion Trees Campaign. The agency also advised on greening last summer’s Beijing Olympics, which set new records for eco-friendly mass spectator sporting events, according to a UNEP report published in February.
The Ohio State men’s basketball team has managed to remain unbeaten through its first 24 games this season. But maintaining an unblemished record through their remaining seven games might prove to be a more difficult task for the Buckeyes. OSU picked up a road win at Minnesota — a place where no current Buckeye, except fifth-year senior forward David Lighty, had won in his career — on Sunday. Now the team will travel to a place where no Buckeye, including Lighty, has won: Madison, Wis. Following their matchup with No. 13-ranked Wisconsin, the Buckeyes will return to Columbus for their lone matchup of the season with Michigan State. After starting off as the No. 2 team in the nation, the Spartans are in the midst of a disappointing season, having fallen out of both The Associated Press‘ Top 25 and ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ polls. Still, MSU, which appeared in the past two Final Fours, remains a threat to the Buckeyes’ undefeated record. The Spartans tout an experienced roster, led by the 2009 Big Ten Player of the Year Kalin Lucas, who leads the team in scoring with 15.8 points per game. MSU also has players with size — 6-foot-7, 230-pound Draymond Green and 6-foot-9, 270-pound Derrick Nix — who could present matchup issues for OSU freshman forward Jared Sullinger, named Monday the conference’s Freshman Player of the Week for the 11th time this season. Michigan coach John Beilein, who has faced both the Spartans and the Buckeyes this season, said he’s been impressed with the Buckeyes, but thinks they’re susceptible to losing a game. “Anyone can get you anytime. It’s never been easy, but home or away, you are in for a battle,” Beilein said. “Ohio State is really good. There is a reason why they are undefeated.” After their matchup with the Spartans, the Buckeyes will travel to West Lafayette, Ind., to face No. 14 Purdue. The Buckeyes dominated the Boilermakers, 87-64, during their first matchup this season, Jan. 25 in Columbus. Playing the Boilermakers on the road, however, could yield a different result, as OSU will again face the Big Ten’s leading scorer and shot blocker, Purdue senior forward JaJuan Johnson. Johnson scored 22 points, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked two shots in Purdue’s first matchup with the Buckeyes. “JaJuan Johnson, I don’t know if I could say enough about him,” OSU coach Thad Matta said after the Buckeyes’ first game against Purdue. “You watch him make those shots on film and you say, ‘He’ll never do that against us,’ and sure enough, he did.” With the difficult challenges that lie ahead in OSU’s next three games, Matta is aware that on any given night his team’s winning streak could come to an end. “These guys are smart enough to know that if we don’t come to play, if we’re not tuned in to what we need to do, we’ll lose,” Matta said. “It’s probably as simple as that.”
(WSVN) – The state has completed an ethics investigation into Miami-Dade Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, deciding to take no further action despite his alleged violation of the gift law.Florida officials said Carvalho violated the state’s gift law by failing to disclose he accepted things like tickets and ties valued at more than $100.Officials said, because Carvalho accepted responsibility and later reported the gifts, there will be no further action taken against him.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Twitter News Considering the underwhelming number of female musicians who have made big chart moves in recent years, we can only hope the success of “I Like It” starts to turn things around. Because in the words of Cardi B herself: “Yeah they call me Cardi B, I run this s*** like cardio.”Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier. Have A Google Home Device? “Talk To GRAMMYs”Read more Cardi B Earns Second No. 1 Hit cardi-b-first-female-rapper-earn-two-no-1-hits Email Her infectious track “I Like It” has risen to make chart-topping history Renée FabianGRAMMYs Jul 2, 2018 – 3:36 pm When we talk about the glass ceiling for women, sometimes there’s those people who think, “Nah, that’s not a thing anymore.” Wrong. Case and point. Today Cardi B made music history as the first female rapper to ever notch two Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits. It took until 2018 for a woman to break that record. But hey, we got here.Off her debut studio album, Invasion Of Privacy, Cardi B’s “I Like It” featuring J Balvin and Bad Bunny just hit No. 1. The track samples Pete Rodriguez’ 1967 tune “I Like It Like That,” and its Latin trap feel is infectious. Cardi B previously earned a No. 1 hit with the GRAMMY-nominated song “Bodak Yellow,” also from her debut album. Now a two-time chart topper, the New York native has surpassed other female rappers with one No. 1 hit, including Lauryn Hill, Lil’ Kim, Shawnna (as a featured artist), and Iggy Azalea.If you think that’s the only record Cardi B notched, think again. According to Billboard’s calculations, she is the first artist since Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in 2013 with two Billboard Hot 100 chart toppers from their debut album. She’s also the first solo artist with two Hot 100 hits since Bruno Mars in 2010 and 2011. And she’s the first female solo artist this decade to earn two No. 1 hits since Lady Gaga in 2009.

2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model Tags Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 81 Photos Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Volvo S60 review: More competitive than ever More From Roadshow 75 Photos 52 Photos 2019 Volvo XC60 is a sensible Swede 0 26 Photos GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV 18 Photos Tags 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle Review • 2019 Volvo XC60 T6: Heavy on value, light on its feet 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado 71 Photos Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado.

Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic.

Sam Bendall/Roadshow We’re all familiar with the adage, “You don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone,” but when it comes to the nuts that hold your car’s front seats in place, you probably don’t want to find out that they’re missing.Volvo has issued a recall for 2,297 examples of the 2018-2019 XC60 SUV and S90 sedan. The vehicles were built between Oct. 12, 2017 and Jan. 15, 2019. The defect lies in the rear flange nuts for the front seat rails. An error in the supplier’s assembly process means that some vehicles may have left the factory without the aforementioned flange nuts. As Volvo notes, the symptoms of the missing bolts will only occur during a crash, when the seat structure and position may be compromised, which can increase the risk of injury during said crash. Volvo notes that the supplier has since updated its assembly process.Volvo discovered the problem in early March, when its supplier found issues with its production line. The automaker initiated a review that turned into an investigation, and the order was issued to prepare to recall the affected vehicles. Thankfully, the fix is pretty straightforward. Volvo technicians will assess the recalled vehicles and, if necessary, add the missing flange nuts if none are present. Dealers have already been notified, but owners should start received recall notifications in the mail in May. As with other recalls, Volvo will reimburse owners who already paid for this repair out of pocket. 10 Photos Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois.

Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker.

For years, Crytek‘s 2007 first-person action game Crysis has been shorthand for a system-intensive game that can test the mettle of even the beefiest rig. Over the past four years, though, computers have gotten a lot faster and Crysis has fallen behind the times… almost anything can run it pretty well now.With Crytek’s Crysis 2 now out, most of us expected it to be the next stress test for modern rigs, but Crytek’s taken pains to let gamers know that won’t be the case: heck, they’ve designed it to run on the Xbox 360, not a Cray.How optimized is Crysis 2? It can actually run on netbooks. For example, check out Crysis 2 running on an Asus Eee PC 1215B, an AMD Fusion based netbook with a Radeon HD 6310M GPU. That is, admittedly, beefier than most netbooks… but still pretty wimpy in the grand scheme of things.How’d the Asus do? Not only did it run, it ran pretty well, albeit at an 800 x 480 resolution. at lowest detail. At that res, it managed to render about 12-15 frames per second, which isn’t great, but is still probably what I got from the original Doom on my 386 back in 1993. Not too shabby at all!
Kolkata: In a bid to cater to the huge demand of Haringhata Meat in North Bengal, the West Bengal Livestock Development Corporation (WBLDC) has come up with a cold storage facility in Siliguri which will act as a central store for storing frozen meat.”We have as many as 35 franchises ready to sell Haringhata Meat in North Bengal. However, due to lack of cold processing unit in North Bengal, we were facing difficulty to supply to these franchises from our unit in Haringhata, Nadia. This 10 metric tonne facility will help us to provide quality meat to the people of North Bengal in a more organised way,” Gouri Shankar Koner, managing director of WBLDC said. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe same building with the storage facility also has an animal hospital with facilities for investigation of diseases and guest house facilities. The whole project has entailed an investment of around Rs 2.16 crore. Koner said WBLDC, which comes under the aegis of the state Animal Resource Development department, has also set up a pig breeding farm at Mohitnagar in Jalpaiguri. Around 1,800 animals will be produced annually there.”Haringhata Meat procures pig from farmers and in some cases, there have been concerns over quality. Now, we will have our own infrastructure for pig breeding and these animals will be slaughtered in our pig processing plant at Haringhata,” Koner said. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedIt may be mentioned that pork products like salami, bacon and sausages of Haringhata Meat are in huge demand in the state. The pig breeding farm has had an investment of Rs 2.29 crore. WBLDC has a 3.5 metric tonne capacity processing unit of chicken and pork at Haringhata in Nadia. Frozen meat and a plethora of value-added products made from meat are sold in 230-odd outlets in the state, under the brand name Haringhata Meat. WBLDC is setting up a chicken and pork processing plant at Phansidewa in Darjeeling district which is expected to be operational by the middle of 2018.”All these projects will help us to cater to the gap of demand and supply in North Bengal and most importantly open up an avenue for export to North-Eastern states and Bhutan where there is a huge demand for quality meat,” Koner said.

Henry T. Casey, Henry T. Casey, on June 1 Update: Expect more 2019 MacBook Pros, details below.What does Apple have planned for the MacBook Pro in 2019? This year’s model added some major features, such as blazing-fast processors, True Tone display technology and a quieter keyboard, which checked off plenty of items on our wish list and made for one of the best Apple laptops yet.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

Here’s what we think 2019 holds for the MacBook Pro, as well as what we want from the new year’s model.News & Rumors (July 2019)The FCC has approved a new MacBook Pro, which could be the 16-inch MacBook Pro.The rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro is the topic of a lot of discussion. It’s still targeted for 2019, after a mis-translation made some think it was delayed to 2020, or even 2021.MacBook Pro 2019 Release Date and Possible PricingIf history is a precedent, the next MacBook Pro should come somewhere after the middle of 2019. For the last six years, Apple’s released most of its MacBook Pro updates in June, July or October, with one exception.Oct. 27, 2016 – The launch of the 4th Gen MacBook Pro, the Type-C-only model sold today, which includes the OLED Touch Bar and 2nd-en butterfly switch keys.June 5, 2017 – Apple adds Intel’s Kaby Lake processors to the MacBook Pro.July 12, 2018 – The Touch Bar-equipped MacBook Pros gained Intel’s Coffee Lake processors (up to Core i9), 3rd-gen. butterfly-switch keys, and the T2 chip for security and storage performance. But as for a more precise prediction of when the new machine will arrive? Tim Bajarin, president of the Creative Strategies firm, said that Apple’s MacBook Pro schedule is “dependent on Intel’s chips,” which makes the timing harder to peg, especially because Apple uses specific versions of processors that other companies don’t.If the 2019 MacBook Pro stays with the Touch Bar, Type-C-only format, expect the 13-inch MacBook Pro to stay at around $1,799 and the 15-inch MacBook Pro to start at $2,399. Apple’s held to those prices since this design launched, in 2016. If Apple redesigns the MacBook Pro, though, expect even higher prices. The 2015 MacBook Pro (which was no slouch) started at $1,299 for the 13-inch model and $1,999 for the 15-inch model.But it’s still hard to gauge how big of an update we’ll get this year — or if we’ll get any update at all. While MacBook Pro refreshes have happened at least once a year over the last three years, some have been far more miniscule than we’d hoped for.Avi Greengart, a tech analyst at GlobalData, agreed, noting that Apple’s “laptop road map has been far more idiosyncratic” than the company’s easily predictable iPhone-upgrade schedule. Just look at the MacBook Air, which went ignored for years. “I honestly couldn’t tell you if the MacBook Pro is going to get an update at all,” Greengart continued, before saying his gut leans toward something slight. “If pressed to speculate, I’d lean towards minor changes or none.”Whiskey Lake Processors The most likely update for a new MacBook Pro would be a processor jump. The move would bring the superfast macOS machines up to the Intel Whiskey Lake processors, which were announced in August of 2018, the successor to 2017’s Intel Coffee Lake chips.MORE: This Could Be the Heart of the New MacBook AirWhat does that mean for you? For starters, Whiskey Lake chips add integrated Gigabit Wi-Fi, so expect faster wireless internet. And while the Whiskey Lake chips provide only a minor performance jump over their Coffee Lake predecessors (they both use Intel’s 14++ nanometer process), they’re expected to pack twice as fast overall performance as 5-year-old Intel computers. And they should have 1.8x better web performance and three times the video-editing speed.While there is chatter about Apple switching CPUs, potentially moving from Intel to ARM, that’s not expected for 2019. Change for the Touch Bar?When asked what (if any) features would be the hallmarks of a 2019 MacBook Pro, Greengart listed potential options, including “a rethink of the Touch Bar.” We would love to see that change happen, as the Touch Bar currently feels like a failed idea. Who is this thing actually helping? Sure, it gives you touch buttons for stuff you could click and tap around for, but the primary audience for the Touch Bar is video and audio editors, scrubbing tracks back and forth. So, unless Apple can find ways to make the Touch Bar matter, the company should update the processor and other specs in its non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro and make a non-Touch Bar 15-inch MacBook Pro. Those physical keys are still valuable to those who can’t find much use for the Touch Bar (which I primarily use for picking emoji). The new MacBook Air shows that Apple can release a MacBook with both Touch ID and actual Escape and Function keys. And users who prefer that option shouldn’t be forced to pay for a touch-sensitive OLED screen above their keyboard that they don’t need.Yes, you can have a virtual Esc key, but trust me — it’s too easy to activate accidentally. An Improved Retina DisplaySure, Apple added its True Tone display technology to the MacBook Pro, but that screen has yet to be perfected. First of all, its bezels could still stand to get thinner. Just look at the nearly edge-to-edge panels on the Huawei MateBook X Pro and the Dell XPS 13.Sure, this would force Apple to rethink where it places its webcam, but I’m sure those geniuses at Cupertino can come up with something. As long as it’s not a notch, most users will be happy.The 2018 MacBook Pro’s 227-pixels-per-inch screens could pack their pixels even denser, as we’ve seen in the 260-ppi MateBook X Pro (260 ppi). Also, while the wide, 1.6:1 ratio of the MacBook Pro screens may be good for video, the Huawei MateBook X Pro’s 3:2-ratio screens allow you to read a bit more at once.What We Want from the New MacBook ProFace ID: It seems like only a matter of time before Apple’s Face ID biometric sensors hit the MacBook Pro. While it appears unlikely that the laptop’s thin lid and display could fit the TrueDepth camera system needed, I’d bet Apple’s trying to figure out how to do it.Thinner and lighter design: The 15-inch Pro could also stand to be both thinner and lighter, as its 0.6-inch thick, 4-pound chassis is thicker and heavier than that of the Dell XPS 13 (0.5 inches, 2.65 pounds). Also, the MateBook X Pro (0.6 inches, 2.9 pounds) manages to give you a 14-inch screen and is still lighter than the 13-inch, 3-pound MacBook Pro. Longer battery life: The 13-inch MacBook Pro lasted only 8 hours and 43 minutes on our web-surfing test. I’d love it if Apple could get closer to 10 hours, like the 9:55 time that the MateBook X Pro got. And while the 15-inch MacBook Pro lasted a decent 10 hours and 21 minutes, both the XPS 15 (11:53) and Surface Book 2 (11:34) lasted over an hour longer.Credit: Laptop MagApple Unveils MacBook Pros: What We Like, What We Don’tThe 5 Biggest Changes in the New MacBook ProThe One Hidden Feature New MacBook Owners Need to Know Author Bio Henry is a senior writer at Laptop Mag, covering security, Apple and operating systems.

If you prefer a larger display, the Tecra X40 has a similar design and specs as the Portégé X30 but flaunts a 14-inch, 1080p panel. Like the Portégé, the Tecra X40 will come with up to a Core i7-8665U CPU. Despite its larger display, the Tecra X40 is also a very portable system, at just 0.7 inches thick and weighing only 2.7 pounds. Both laptops are made of magnesium alloy painted in a unique Onxy Blue color variant. We’re starting to see more laptops, like the LG Gram 17, that are made from this lightweight yet durable material. Like the Gram, these Dynabook laptops are MIL-STD-810G tested, which means they should be able to withstand harsh environments. And if they don’t, Dynabook offers a three-year warranty, whereas most laptop makers only ship with one year of support.MORE: Best Ultrabooks: Lightweight and Travel LaptopsThe Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 will come in both touch and non-touch versions and feature the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard based on 802.11ax, which should provide better wireless coverage and speeds (provided you have the right network setup at home). Other useful features include a fingerprint reader, an optional Smart Card reader and an optional IR camera. Dynabook also says that the Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 will have Windows 10 Modern Standby, which means the notebooks will stay connected in a low-power state when in sleep mode so that processes can continue in the background. One benefit of this mode is that your apps will remain up-to-date, even when the laptops aren’t in use. However, some Dell users have complained about Modern Standby on the XPS 15, citing battery drain and overheating, so let’s home Dynabook has worked out any potential issues. Portégé A30Designed for small and medium businesses, the 13.3-inch Portégé A30 isn’t quite as sleek as the X-series laptops, but at 0.8 inches thick and 2.7 pounds, you won’t have any issues slipping it into your briefcase or backpack. Also complying with military durability standards, the Portégé A30 is made from polycarbonate acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, or ABS, a type of plastic known for its heat-resistance. Like its premium siblings, the Portégé A30 will run on 8th Gen Intel CPUs, ranging from the budget Celeron 3867 to the Intel Core i7-8650U. While the A30 isn’t quite as high-end as the X-series machines, it still comes with an optional fingerprint reader, Smart Card reader and IR camera for additional security. Dynabook smartly opted for an understated design on the Portégé A30. Gone is the flashy blue finish and in its place is an all-black chassis that is more appropriate for an office setting. Best Laptops: Top Rated Notebooks, Chromebooks, 2-in-1s Toshiba has returned to the U.S. with a different name and a lineup of new laptops. Dynabook, formerly Toshiba, has unveiled the Portégé A30, Portégé X30 and Tecra X40, three new midrange laptops for consumers and business users.

Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 The Portégé X30 is a 13.3-inch premium ultrabook powered by 8th Gen Intel Core (Whiskey Lake) processors. While we would have preferred the new 10th Gen chips, the highest-end Core i7-8665U CPU available in the Portégé X30 should provide enough power for most users.

More: 10 best things to do in Madrid: a local’s guide2. BerlinBerlin prides itself as being Germany’s hub of culture and creativity. The city has over 400 galleries and numerous other museums. Head to the UNESCO world heritage site, Museumsinsel (Museum Island) where you’ll find five of the most famous museums that cover everything from the dawn of civilisation right up to the modern age. If you want to discover the more bohemian side to this diverse city, rent a bike and explore Kreuzberg, the heart of Berlin’s alternative scene. Highlights include the East Side Gallery, a freedom memorial that is a 1.3km section of the Berlin Wall that has over 100 paintings. It is an interesting snapshot of the feelings in the city when the wall came down. Nearby you’ll find Aufbau Haus, a former factory that is now an artistic centre, filled with galleries, cafes and workshops. Happier admiring some Renaissance art than relaxing by the pool? Prefer exploring the ruins of an ancient civilisation than sipping a cocktail on the beach? Well we can now reveal the best cities to get your cultural fix. These cities have the best art, history and museums that will leave you feeling truly intellectually satisfied by the end of your trip.1. MadridMadrid is a city for art lovers. El Paseo del Arte (the Art Walk) is a 1km stretch where you’ll find three of the world’s best galleries – El Prado, Reina Sofía and Thyssen-Bornemisza. El Prado – the most famous of the three – is home to a fine collection of Flemish and Italian art as well as an unrivalled collection of Spanish works including those of Velázquez, Greco and Goya- a true highlight being Goya’s Pinturas Negras – a deeply disturbing and eerie collection of oil paintings from the later years of his life. Thyssen-Bornemisza has a vast and varied collection of paintings including the works of Van Gogh, Monet and Caravaggio. Finally the modern arts museum, Reina Sofía, is home to Picasso’s most famous and moving piece, Guernica, that details the bombing of the town at the start of the Spanish Civil War. Madrid also has plenty of cultural events in the evenings, with a growing theatre scene and plenty of bars and venues showing traditional flamenco. Visit Spain’s capital during one of Madrid’s major festivals such as San Isidro and La Paloma where the streets are alive with people, music and events. 5. MarrakeshImmerse yourself in the mayhem of central Marrakesh’s Djemaa El Fna and take in the sights and spice-scented air of this frantic city.
