SRA awaiting 19,000 renewal applications with only two weeks to go

first_imgMore than half the expected applications for practising certificate renewal are still to be received with just two weeks of the process remaining. The Solicitors Regulation Authority today revealed that more than 18,000 bulk or single applications are completed or nearing completion, out of an expected 37,000. Those wishing to renew have until 14 December to complete the process, which started on 1 November. Alan Vallance, SRA director of organisational services, said: ‘We are pleased to report that mySRA is performing well and any issues being experienced by users are minor and easily addressed. ‘We urge firms and individuals to complete the online renewals process as soon as possible rather than leaving it until the last minute.’ Those submitting bulk renewals must do so before the 14 December deadline but can arrange for payment to be made later. The SRA contact centre will be open until 15 December for any queries from practitioners, with a range of support and guidance at the regulator’s website. So far there have been fewer reported problems than during last year’s renewal process, when faults with the new online system forced the deadline to be repeatedly put back.last_img read more

Stranger Things 4 confirmed: watch the first teaser

first_imgLet’s be honest, given the ending of Stranger Things 3 it’s no surprise that there is going to be a Stranger Things 4. It’s nice, however, to have it confirmed officially and also to get a small teaser to keep us guessing as to what’s going to happen. On 30th September, Netflix officially confirmed that Stranger Things 4 would be coming sometime in the future.“The Duffer Brothers have captivated viewers around the world with Stranger Things and we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring their vivid imaginations to other film and series projects our members will love,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer.“We can’t wait to see what the Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down.”You can view the teaser trailer below: Given the tag line of “We’re not in Hawkins anymore” clearly suggests that Stranger Things 4 will be taking part over a larger geographical area. The ending of Stranger Things 3 showed a scene in Russia where prisoners were being fed to a demogorgon so we should definitely be seeing what the Russians have been up to.There is also the mystery of who the American is that they are referring to at the end, has Hopper somehow survived and is Eleven going to kick some serious butt in order to save him?Nothing has officially been released regarding the plot but if the previous series have been anything to go by I’m sure we’ll be in for a treat whenever Stranger Things 4 is released.last_img read more

Antigua PM says UWI/Harvard Partnership Likely

first_img Share Tweet 67 Views   one comment Share EducationNewsRegional Antigua PM says UWI/Harvard Partnership Likely by: – December 11, 2019center_img Sharing is caring! Share Antigua’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne has announced that the president of Harvard University, Dr Lawrence Bacow has responded to his advocacy for a programme of cooperation between Harvard University and the Five Islands Campus of the University of the West Indies in Antigua.Browne said that Dr Bacow has indicated the willingness of Harvard to work out cooperation arrangements that would benefit the five islands campus, in acknowledgment of Harvard university’s historical relationship with slavery, particularly confronting past injustices and their legacies.Just recently, Prime Minister Browne called out Harvard as needing to acknowledge its responsibility in the development of Antigua.The Harvard Law school was founded on an endowment in 1815 that was funded from slavery on the Royall’s Plantation on Antigua.Preliminary discussions to establish a framework for cooperation between the two universities will be held in January 2020, after the Christmas break.Prime Minister Browne welcomed President Bacow’s readiness to engage and stated that between now and the preliminary meeting, in January, practical proposals for cooperation will be prepared.(SKNObserver)last_img read more

130nm SiGe RF Process to Advance Next Gen Wireless Communications

first_imgGLOBALFOUNDRIES has announced a next-generation radio-frequency (RF) silicon solution for their Silicon Germanium (SiGe) high-performance technology portfolio. This technology is optimized for customers who need improved performance solutions for automotive radar, satellite communications, 5G millimeter-wave base stations and other wireless and wireline communication network applications.The SiGe 8XP technology is the latest extension to their 130nm high-performance SiGe family and enables customers to develop RF solutions that deliver even faster data throughput, over greater distances, while consuming less power. This advanced technology offers an improved heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) performance with lower noise figure, higher signal integrity, and up to a 25 percent increase in maximum oscillation frequency (fMAX) to 340 GHz compared to its predecessor, SiGe 8HP.The complexity and performance demands of high bandwidth communication systems operating in the mmWave frequency bands have created the need for higher performance silicon solutions. This creates opportunities for high-performance SiGe solutions in the RF front end of 5G smartphones and other mmWave phased array consumer applications in addition to the current applications that depend on SiGe for high performance, such as the communications infrastructure base stations, backhaul, satellite and fiber optic networks.With tomorrow’s 5G deployments poised to drive a proliferation of base stations with smaller cell areas, SiGe 8HP and 8XP are designed to help offer a balance of value, power output, efficiency, low noise, and linearity at microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies for differentiated RF solutions in next-generation mobile infrastructure hardware and smartphone RF front ends. Their SiGe 8HP and 8XP high-performance offerings enable chip designers to integrate significant digital and RF functionality while exploiting a more economical silicon technology base compared to gallium arsenide (GaAs) and higher performance than CMOS.In addition to high performance transistors for efficient operation at mmWave frequencies, SiGe8HP and 8XP introduce technology innovations that can reduce the die size and enable area-efficient solutions. A new Cu metallization feature provides improved current carrying capabilities with five times the current density at a 100C, or up to 25 degrees C higher operating temperature at the same current density compared to standard Cu lines.last_img read more

Tribe Comes Alive In The Fifth To Trim Magic Number To Three

first_img Related Topics The Indians scored four runs in the fifth and sixth innings to blow the doors off of the White Sox in a 10-4 victory as they cut their magic number to only three games to capture an AL Central Division Title.Trevor Bauer had a rough start to his night allowing a two-run shot in the first inning to Melky Cabrera but other than another two-run blast from Avisail Garcia in the fifth the righty lasted 7.2 innings for the Tribe. He finished the night allowing four runs (all earned) on seven hits, two walks and six strikeouts.“He made a couple of mistakes that he paid for,” skipper Terry Francona spoke of Bauer, “But other than that he was really pretty good. It not only allowed our offense to kind of come back, tie it and then spread it out but he really did pitch pretty good.”Coco Crisp had his best night in an indians uniform since the acquisition going three-for-four with a double and three RBIs.Mike Napoli got back on track for the Tribe with three hits and two RBIs, snapping an 0-for-21 skid at the plate.Jose Ramirez continued his big season at the plate with a two-run homer in the fourth and would later add a two-run double in the sixth.The Tribe will look to shave their magic number down to two tomorrow night when they send Cody Anderson (2-4, 6.24) to the bump to face off with Jose Quintana (12-11, 3.26) of the White Sox. First pitch is slated for 7:10. Kyle Lewandowskilast_img read more
