The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement In a very brief press event in New York today, Verizon has showcased the next line of Motorola’s Droid-branded phones: the Mini, the Maxx, and the Ultra.All of the new Droid devices, which will be replacing the current RAZR models, will feature a Kevlar, unibody design, which will give them a thinner look and lighter feel.Each device has its own market niche, at least as far as Verizon is concerned. According to Jeff Dietel Verizon’s VP of Wireless Devices, the Droid Ultra “is all about thin,” and the Droid Mini will be “a compact design.” The Maxx is “all about battery life,” and the specs are impressive if they perform in real-life: the Droid Maxx will have 8% more battery life than than its RAZR Maxx predecessor—up to 48 hours of power.While the camera hype on the new devices was nowhere near as high on as the recent Lumia announcements from Nokia, the phones will have new on-board software like Quick Capture to speed up picture taking and Droid Zap, which will enable users to share photos with nearby friends using gestures.Pre-ordering can start today. The Droid Mini will run $99, the Ultra $199 and the Maxx $299. All three of the devices will hit the shelves on August 20th.Image courtesy Northfoto/Shutterstock. brian proffitt Related Posts Tags:#Android#now#smartphone#verizon Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …

I was nuisance personified to my teachers and parents. I could barely sit in a class,” exclaimed Harsh Rana, who is now a national level gold winner in jump rope championship.Competing against kids older than his age, 14-year-old Harsh, a resident of south Delhi’s Mehrangarhi village, is among 1,000 students from the country, who participated in the national jump rope championship held in Karnataka last year.The sport – jump rope – is equivalent to running for 3,000 metre in three minutes, it is believed. Harsh has set a national record of jumping 412 times in three minutes, for which he bagged the gold medal in the tournament. Harsh is now among the brightest kids in his school, who besides being a national champion, is also the second highest scorer in his class.’HIS SINCERITY IS INSPIRING'”I realised that I wanted to do something fruitful, so I went ahead,” said the teenager who trains for over six hours a day. Harsh starts training as early as 4 in the morning, eyeing a spot in global competitions. Harsh’s trainer Vivek Somania told Mail Today that he saw the energy Harsh exuded and hence, of the 500 other participants, the 14-year-old caught his attention, akin to how Aamir Khan spots Darsheel Safary in Taare Zameen Par.”I have personally seen eagerness in Harsh to deliver. His sincerity is inspiring,” Vivek Somania told MAIL TODAY.”We have seen him diverting his negative energy into something positive. I have seen my sports teacher as well working extra hours to hone Harsh. He is a classic case of education and schooling gone right, where a wall crasher has become a national jump rope champion,” said B K Sharma, principal of Delhi government-run Shaheed Hemu Kalani Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya in Lajpat Nagar, where Harsh studies.advertisementHis father is a migrant from Rajasthan working in south Delhi in a menial job who has shouldered the responsibility to bring up seven kids, two of his own and five of his late brother.Making enough to just eke out a living, Harsh’s father Kushpal Singh Rana now intends to use the Rs 62,000 awarded by the Delhi government for Harsh’s education and training. “I am aware that this is not going to completely take care of Harsh’s expenses but I am willing to use it all to tap out his full potential,” said Kushpal.Kushpal added that it is a matter of pride to see his son, who once was a reason for Kushpal’s multiple visits to school for misconduct, chart out a schedule encompassing studies and training in equal measure.ALSO READ | Rio Olympic medallist Sakshi Malik ties the knot with Satyawart KadianALSO READ | Sakshi Malik, Dipa Karmakar among 50 under 30 Indians in Forbes list of super achieversALSO WATCH | India have the firepower to defend Champions Trophy title: Michael Clarke to India Today
MIAMI GARDENS, FL – DECEMBER 30: Jourdan Lewis #26 of the Michigan Wolverines tries to avoid the tackle of Carlos Becker III #15 of the Florida State Seminoles in the first half during the Capitol One Orange Bowl at Sun Life Stadium on December 30, 2016 in Miami Gardens, Florida. (Photo by Chris Trotman/Getty Images)Detroit’s Cass Technical High School football program sends a lot of players to college. Many of them, like cornerback Jourdan Lewis, end up playing for the in-state school: Michigan. Recently, Ohio State has been able to pluck some of the school’s talent away from the Wolverines. The Buckeyes have a threesome of Cass Tech players: sophomore defensive back Damon Webb, freshman running back Mike Weber and freshman defensive end Josh Alabi. On fall camp move-in day, those three players wore “Imported From Detroit” t-shirts. Today, at OSU’s media day, they took a picture together, which was posted to Snapchat. Lewis found the photo, screenshotted it and tweeted it out with the caption, “Bums.” Bums pic.twitter.com/ZxezCSWiMB— Jourdan Lewis (@JourdanJD) August 16, 2015Lewis is clearly just messing with his former high school teammates, who he is probably still close with. There will surely be no messing around come Nov. 28, when Michigan takes on Ohio State in Ann Arbor, Mich.
There’s obviously an enormous difference between playing as hot as George has for a month and doing so for an entire season. Still, his transformation could end up being noteworthy for one key reason: It’s the closest thing we’ve seen to a changing of the guard on the Thunder since Westbrook took over after Durant’s departure.For years, Westbrook critics have suggested that he’d give his teams a better chance to win by taking a step back. More often than not, he ignored these voices. And once he had the spotlight to himself, he broke an NBA record for the highest single-season usage rate while also averaging a triple-double over a full season — and that 2016-17 OKC team finished sixth in the West and lost in the first round of the playoffs. Westbrook tried playing more unselfishly last season, though that largely seemed to backfire. But it seems to be working now.In the midst of the worst shooting season2From the standpoint of true shooting percentage. Curiously, his free-throw percentage has also tumbled to a career low. of his career, the 30-year-old Westbrook has eased his foot off the pedal during the team’s surge. He has taken 19.4 shots per contest this season, his fewest since the 2015-16 campaign. And during Oklahoma City’s 12-game hot streak, Westbrook attempted just 17 shots per night. (Prior to that, he was taking a little more than 20 shots per game.)Westbrook still has considerable value. He continues to be a force when he bends defenses, and he’s finishing at the rim more efficiently than ever. His triple-double Monday marked his 10th straight, giving him the longest single-season stretch in NBA history. If he keeps up his current pace, this would be Westbrook’s third consecutive season averaging a triple-double.But make no mistake: George is leading this team. And it’s been that way all year.Because Westbrook missed the start of the season, when he was coming off a late-offseason arthroscopic procedure on his knee, George was the club’s lone workhorse at times to begin the year. That was something he rarely enjoyed last season, when the offense generally saw George, Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony take turns shooting.Somewhat stunningly, at this rate, George is already just 10 games or so away from eclipsing his shot attempt total from last season. His shot chart this season looks essentially the same as last year’s, but the clarity about his role seems to have helped his game immensely. George, perhaps more comfortable with Westbrook and the team now, is playing as if he realizes that it’s generally a good thing for him to take the reins on offense.So is George’s unreal stretch enough to propel him to the top of the MVP race? One factor in his favor is that he’s elite on both ends of the floor. The Thunder rank among the top-3 defenses — despite defensive specialist Andre Roberson not having played a minute all season — largely because of George, who is leading the league in steals and loose balls recovered while ranking second in deflections. George has certainly pieced together a solid defensive player of the year candidacy.But he has two big obstacles in his MVP path. Giannis Antetokounmpo — who averages 27 points, nearly 13 boards and 6 assists per game while playing great defense — has powered the Bucks to the NBA’s best record. And while offensive juggernaut James Harden is often seen as a defensive lightweight, his metrics — 2.2 steals per game and a league-leading 209 deflections — compare favorably with George’s.But George may care more about his team’s fortunes than his individual accolades. FiveThirtyEight’s projection model views Oklahoma City as a legitimate challenger to the Warriors in the West. While Golden State is still a massive favorite, the projections show considerable respect to the Thunder, giving them an 11 percent probability to win the NBA championship — a figure that’s not far off the Raptors and Bucks, despite those two playing in the less competitive Eastern Conference.However you slice it, the fact that Oklahoma City has believers — whether they’re rooted in computer algorithms or actual fans — is a credit to George’s unbelievable play as of late.Check out our latest NBA predictions. If there’s a club that wishes it could fast-forward through the All-Star break, it would be the Oklahoma City Thunder, who are the NBA’s hottest team and are winners of 11 of their past 12 contests.Russell Westbrook is in the middle of a historic triple-double run. The team, which couldn’t hit a 3-point shot for the first month of the season, now can’t miss from outside — and has put itself firmly in contention for a top-two seed in the loaded Western Conference.But the biggest development of late has been Paul George playing the best basketball of his life, morphing from a trusty sidekick into the Thunder’s 2013-14 MVP version of Kevin Durant.That isn’t an exaggeration. Durant racked up 40.8 points, 9.4 boards and 7 assists per 100 possessions on a lofty 63.5 true shooting percentage during his dominant campaign. Since Jan. 17, George has logged 41.9 points, 9.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists per 100 possessions on 67.9 true shooting, boasting better assist-to-turnover and steals rates than Durant had in 2013-14.1According to Basketball-Reference.com’s Game Score metric, which calculates how well someone played by analyzing his entire stat line each night, George has averaged a 29.1 Game Score during this recent hot streak. By comparison, Durant’s average Game Score during his MVP season was 24.9.
