World champion Hamilton dismisses tax ‘dodge’ row

first_imgHamilton’s lawyers have said the tax structure leading to the VAT refund was entirely legal. Noting that his spokesmen had already put out a press release, Hamilton said “I don’t really have much more to add.”“I’ve just come from this great period of time with my family and friends that I have this huge wave of positive energy and nothing can really dent that,” he said.“That doesn’t distract me from my core values and also what I’m here to do, which is trying to win this Brazilian Grand Prix for the second time in my life in 10 years.” Share on: WhatsApp Sao Paulo, Brazil | AFP | Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton on Wednesday dismissed a row over his avoidance of taxes on a luxury jet, saying he’s only thinking about this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix.“I’m just solely focused on trying to win this race this weekend. I still have two races to go. I don’t really have anything to add to the whole scenario that’s happening,” he told reporters in Brazil’s biggest city ahead of Sunday’s race.The British driver, who was crowned world champion for the fourth time last month in Mexico City, reportedly got a £3.3 million ($4.4 million, €3.7 million) VAT refund in 2013 after his airplane was imported into the Isle of Man — a low-tax British Crown Dependency.The allegation was part of revelations in the so-called Paradise Papers, a trove of documents about the tax avoidance practices of the rich leaked from elite accountancy firm Appleby to the US-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.last_img read more

Huskies earn big win over Peace River

first_imgA big win for the Huskies on Saturday night. Facing their old foes, the North Peace Navigators, and clinging to second place in the NWJHL standings, coach Bob Kalb conceeded it was a must-win.Both teams came into the game charged, knowing the importance of the game.  It seemed like that energy might go to waste, when the referee took a puck in the face during the first play of the game, leading a lengthy delay.  But the Huskies remained focused, and played their best first period in quite some time. – Advertisement -Luke McInerney opened the scoring 7 minutes in, when he found his own rebound, and beat a helpless Bretton Stewart.  A couple of minutes later, the Huskies put the pressure on, and after cycling the puck for at least a minute, Jason Arnouse came off the bench, straight into the play, and fired home a Dan Pappin centring pass to make it 2-0.  Still more in the first, when Jon Spence snuck in from the point, and hit a one-timer on a pass from Steven Fast, to send the Huskies into the room up 3-0. Advertisement In the second, the pups continued their aggressive play, though the scoring sheet may not have been so kind. Cam McKinnon made it 4-0, on a Jon Spence rebound, bringing to an end Nav’s starter Bretton Stewart’s night. But then Peace River would fight back. A Lance Rapson point-shot hit the skate of Justin Vedress and trickled over the goal-line. Mitch Kohut made things interesting, when he fired a shot underneath Zach Blain’s arm, to make it 4-2. Advertisement Zach Blain earned the win in goal for FSJ, playing a solid game, including a couple of remarkable saves in the third. The team went 4/10 on the powerplay, while PR was 3/6 with the man advantage. Luke McInerney also impressed, earning player of the game honours, for his solid 2-goal performance. The win gives them a 6 point cushion on Peace River, as well as a three point gap on Dawson Creek (not counting the results of Dawson’s game in Slave Lake). The race for second place continues on Sunday afternoon, when the team hosts Beaverlodge on Sunday afternoon, at 2pm. Advertisement Asked what the team needs to do to finish in second place, Luke McInerney has a simple answer. “Win all our games,” he smiled. “Just work hard”. The Huskies added another, when Luke McInerney stuffed a puck underneath Tavis Clark. But before the period was out, Justin Vedress scored his second of the game, potting a Rapson rebound after Jesse Disher missed a check on Rapson, to make it 5-3 after 40 minutes. But in the third, while the parade to the penalty box continued, the Huskies put the lid on the Navs, killing 7 minutes of third period powerplay time. The only goal on the third came late, when Kyle Richardson took a hooking penalty, and then the Navs bench argued, leading to a two-man advantage for FSJ, converted by Cody Kalb. Special teams were the name of the game this night. 7 of the game’s 9 goals were scored on the powerplay, though the defining moment for Fort St. John came mid-way through the third, when they successfully killed a five-minute major penalty to Payden Wongstedt, who brought his stick up on Gerry Young, and earned 5 + a game.

Half-time: Brentford 1 MK Dons 0

first_imgLasse Vibe’s sixth goal of the season put Brentford ahead at the break in Dean Smith’s first game in charge.The new head coach saw his initial plans derailed slightly when Alan McCormack pulled out in the warm-up and Sergi Canos came in for only the second start of his loan spell from Liverpool.And it took the Bees a little time to settle, with Josh Murphy firing wide from an angle and Dean Bowditch shooting straight at home keeper David Button.But on 20 minutes, Brentford showed Smith their counter-attacking potential with a wonderfully worked goal.Alan Judge began the move with a neat turn and sprint from halfway before releasing Jake Bidwell, whose cross was headed home by Vibe.After that, the Bees dominated and should have added to their lead before half-time.Judge wasted a good one-on-one chance as Dons keeper David Martin saved and he also struck the bar with a free-kick, while Antony Kay cleared Konstantin Kerschbaumer’s follow-up off the line.And on 33 minutes, a ball dropped to Canos, as the Dons looked decidedly uneasy at the back, but he too hit the woodwork.Brentford: Button; Yennaris, Tarkowski, O’Connell, Bidwell; Kerschbaumer, Diagouraga; Woods, Canos, Judge; Vibe.Subs: Bonham, Barbet, McEachran, Saunders, Gogia, Jota, Hofmann.MK Dons: Martin; Spence, McFadzean, Kay, Lewington; Potter, Poyet; Baker, Bowditch, Murphy; Maynard.Subs: Cropper, Hodson, Benavente, Carruthers, Powell, Hall, Gallagher.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Tottenham out after Juve’s Wembley comeback

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesTottenham 1 Juventus 2(Juventus won 4-3 on aggregate)A stunning comeback by Juventus at Wembley knocked Tottenham out of the Champions League.After a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Turin, Spurs knew their away goals meant a clean sheet would guarantee them a place in the quarter-finals.And they found themselves in an even stronger position by half-time of the second leg courtesy of Son Heung-min’s goal six minutes before the interval.Son’s scuffed effort following Kieran Trippier’s ball across the face of goal was enough to put Spurs ahead and was a just reward for their first-half dominance.Embed from Getty ImagesBut the Italian side hit back by scoring twice in the space of three minutes midway through the second half.Gonzalo Higuaín netted from close range and then set up Paulo Dybala, whose goal proved to be decisive.Harry Kane headed against the post in the 90th minute as Tottenham tried in vain to find an equaliser.Tottenham: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier (Lamela 74), Dembele, Eriksen, Alli (Llorenta 86), Son, Kane.Subs not used: Vorm, Rose, Wanyama, Lucas, Sissoko.

Managing energy consumption in wireless IoT devices

first_imgJacob Beningo is an embedded software consultant, advisor and educator who currently works with clients in more than a dozen countries to dramatically transform their software, systems and processes. Feel free to contact him at jacob@beningo.com, at his website www.beningo.com, and sign-up for his monthly Embedded Bytes Newsletter. As the IoT develops and more edge devices are deployed in the field, undoubtedly a significant portion of those devices will be battery operated. Battery operated wireless edge nodes are convenient and cost effective because they require no access to electrical infrastructure and can be easily deployed. The potential problem with battery operated devices is that when developers are under the gun to get their devices built and out the door, battery life is one of the last things on their mind. There are several things that a developer can do throughout their development cycle to ensure that they will be able to properly manage their device’s energy consumption.First, when a developer is designing their hardware, they need to break-up their hardware into subsystems and provide the ability to add a current shunt resistor to measure the current consumption for each subsystem. Developers should consider adding the current shunt resistor to circuits and subsystems such as:The microcontrollerThe wireless controllerSensor arraysThe power supplies inputs and outputsAnd any other specific subsystems that could potentially draw significant currentBeing able to monitor the current in these systems will allow a developer to determine where energy is being consumed and devise ways to minimize that consumption. The nice thing about these current shunts is that in production they can be replaced with zero-ohm resistors or the on-board microcontroller’s analog to digital convert could be connected to them so that the energy consumption could be monitored remotely.Next, a developer has a huge amount of control over the energy consumption based just on the software that they are writing for their embedded controller. The microcontroller has the ability to not just manage its own energy consumption but also manage the wireless controller and other onboard circuits. For example, a developer with an Arm Cortex-M processor can put their system into a low power mode and wait for an interrupt to wake the system. The code to implement such a behavior is as simple as writing a few lines of code:while(true){   _WFI();}which quite literally means “Wait For Interrupt” and puts the system into a low power state. That interrupt could be from the wireless controller, telling the microcontroller that there is data to be processed or it could from any other event in the system that has been deemed important enough to wake the system. Don’t forget that battery powered devices should be architected so that they are event driven and otherwise spend most of their time sleeping waiting for events to occur.Another favorite method that can help manage energy consumption is the to use the Sleep On Exit capabilities in the Arm Cortex-M processors. This essentially tells the processor to skip the context switch that occurs at the start and end of an interrupt because the same interrupt is expected to fire again. This can shave dozens of clock cycles off the software execution which can add up significantly over the course of weeks and months. This feature is usually enabled by enabling the sleep-on-exit feature in the system control block as follows:SCB->SCR = SCB | 0x2U;while(true){   _WFI();}Now these last two techniques are simple things that can be done in the software to help minimize the microcontroller’s energy consumption. The real secret though to managing the energy consumption in an IoT device is that you have to measure the energy consumption and correlate it to the code that is being executed. Without making measurements, there is no way to understand if an interrupt is firing too often; to realize if a particular function is executing longer than expected; or to determine where the energy is going in the system. Once measurements are performed, a developer can then intelligently dig in and determine the best optimizations for the system that can then lead to a finely tuned and efficient wireless IoT node.Optimizing and managing the energy consumption in a wireless IoT device is usually one of the last things a developer considers before they push the product out the door. In some circumstances, it’s more important to get to market and then tune and update later. Still, managing energy consumption will be difficult if a developer hasn’t thought through the problem and ensured that the hardware and software is in place to easily update the system or monitor its field behavior. We’ve looked at a few simple ideas to get you started today which can at least ensure you have a few fundamental starting points to managing your own system’s energy consumption.Additional Resources:Optimize your Systems Battery Life using the Otii Arc7 Tips for Optimizing Embedded Software7 Tricks for Estimating Battery Life Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: IoT center_img Continue Reading Previous ST: STM32 software package brings Amazon Alexa technology to simple connected objectsNext The hacker’s nightmare cipherlast_img read more

Amazon Rings police partnerships troubled security industry group

first_imgAn industry group for video surveillance is calling out Ring. Chris Monroe/CNET An industry group focused on surveillance says Ring’s hundreds of police partnerships are troubling because they suffer from a lack of transparency. The Monitoring Association, a trade group made up of security and alarm companies, said it was concerned that police are helping to promote Ring products without informing consumers. Ring is a member of the association.Police across the US have found Ring video doorbells to be a useful tool for getting footage and creating impromptu surveillance networks in residential communities. Ring has partnered with at least 231 police departments in the US, according to a map created by Shreyas Gandlur. Despite multiple requests, the company hasn’t disclosed how many police departments it’s partnered with in total. Unlike the situation with other video doorbells and surveillance products, police often end up promoting Ring sales through partnerships with the company. Police often get free cameras to give away to residents and will encourage people to buy Ring’s products, including the accompanying Neighbors app. The close relationship between Ring and hundreds of police agencies has become a concern for The Monitoring Association, which called for more transparency about the arrangements.”We are troubled by recent reports of agreements that are said to drive product-specific promotion, without alerting consumers about these marketing relationships,” TMA President Ivan Spector said in a statement published Wednesday. “This lack of transparency goes against our standards as an industry, diminishes public trust and takes advantage of these public servants.” Spector is also president of Sentinel Alarm. Ring says its products help make neighborhoods safer and that it doesn’t require police to promote Ring devices. It also said it notifies users about partnerships through alerts in the Neighbors app. “When new law enforcement agencies come on board, we inform users through in-app alerts via a regional announcement,” a Ring spokesperson said. “In addition, Ring does not support programs that require users to provide law enforcement with access to their cameras or footage as a condition for receiving a Ring device.”The industry group’s concerns echo complaints by privacy advocates. Fight for the Future, a tech-focused nonprofit, launched a campaign in July calling for cities to ban police partnerships with Ring.  “When an industry association that represents security and surveillance camera companies thinks that your practices are too invasive and lack transparency, that really says something,” Fight for the Future’s deputy director, Evan Greer, said in a statement. “This should be setting off alarm bells for local elected officials in the hundreds of cities that already have these partnerships.”Originally published Aug. 8, 10:27 a.m. PT.Update, 2:08 p.m.: Adds Ring comment.
