Diet Pepsi gets rid of aspartame in US but no change in

In this Saturday, Aug. 8, 2015 photo, bottles of Diet Pepsi with, left, and without aspartame, center and right, sit in a case at a store in New York. In response to customer feedback, PepsiCo said earlier this year that it would replace the aspartame in Diet Pepsi with another artificial sweetener that has less baggage. (AP Photo/Candice Choi) Diet Pepsi gets rid of aspartame in U.S., but no change in store in Canada by Candice Choi, The Associated Press Posted Aug 10, 2015 10:45 am MDT Last Updated Aug 10, 2015 at 11:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – A revamped Diet Pepsi without aspartame is popping up on store shelves in the U.S. So will people start flocking back to the soda?PepsiCo says its new Diet Pepsi should be available nationally this week. In response to customer feedback, the company said earlier this year that it would replace the aspartame in the drink with another artificial sweetener that has less baggage.But Canadians won’t be seeing the new format. Diet Pepsi in Canada will continue to be sweetened with aspartame, the company wrote in an email to The Canadian Press.“There are no changes to any cola beverages in Canada at this time,” said Sandy Lyver of PepsiCo Beverages Canada.“As always, we will continue to listen closely to consumers’ requests and evolve our portfolio to meet the specific needs and preferences of Canadian consumers.”The rollout in the U.S. will test the theory that the sweetener is to blame for fleeing customers, or if other issues might be at play. Other diet sodas that still have aspartame include Diet Coke, Diet Dr Pepper and Fanta Zero.Sales of traditional diet sodas have been falling. Industry executives blaming the freefall on unfounded concerns people have about aspartame. Two years ago, Coca-Cola even tested ads in select newspapers defending the safety of the sweetener.“It’s the No. 1 thing that our customers have been calling about,” said Seth Kaufman, a senior vice-president at PepsiCo.At least in the short term, Diet Pepsi sales are likely to see bump from the marketing push around the new formula, which will include in-store sampling and discounting in coming weeks.In terms of taste, Kaufman said it’s not identical but that the drink should still be familiar to fans of Diet Pepsi.It’s not the first attempt by PepsiCo Inc. to lift flagging sales of Diet Pepsi. In 2012, the company tried improving the drink by combining aspartame with acesulfame potassium, often called ace-K, another artificial sweetener that helps prevent the taste from degrading over time. The latest version of Diet Pepsi will also have ace-K in addition to sucralose, best known by the brand name Splenda.Cans and bottles of the new Diet Pepsi have been making their way through the distribution in recent weeks. Stores that don’t do a lot of business may still have the old versions stocked. This weekend, for instance, a store in New York City had the old and new versions side by side.The new cans will be marked with the words “Now Aspartame Free” above the Pepsi circle logo.___Follow Candice Choi at www.twitter.com/candicechoi read more

World Bank President steps down Chief Executive assumes temporary role

In a statement, Mr. Kim said that “It has been a great honour to serve as President of this remarkable institution, full of passionate individuals dedicated to the mission of ending extreme poverty in our lifetime. The work of the World Bank Group is more important now than ever as the aspirations of the poor rise all over the world, and problems like climate change, pandemics, famine and refugees continue to grow in both their scale and complexity.”During his term, which began in July 2012, President Kim emphasized that one of the greatest needs in the developing world was more international funding for infrastructure, and he pushed the World Bank to work with private sector partners committed to building sustainable, climate-smart infrastructure in developing countries.Under Mr. Kim’s leadership, the World Bank provided financing at levels never seen outside of a financial crisis and set two goals for the bank: to end extreme poverty by 2030, and to boost shared prosperity, focusing on the bottom 40 percent of the population in developing countries. These goals now guide and inform the institution in its daily work around the globe.Mr. Kim’s tenure also saw the World Bank launch several new innovative financial instruments, including facilities to address infrastructure needs, prevent pandemics, and help the millions of people forcibly displaced from their homes by climate shocks, conflict, and violence. The Bank is also working with the United Nations and leading technology companies to implement the Famine Action Mechanism, to detect warning signs earlier and prevent famines before they begin.Mr. Kim has announced that, on leaving the World Bank, he will join a company and focus on increasing infrastructure investments in developing countries.  The details of this new position will be announced shortly. He will also be re-joining the board of Partners In Health (PIH), an not-for-profit organization he co-founded more than 30 years ago. read more

Soldiers facing prosecution for Iraq drowning were cleared a decade ago after

first_imgThree servicemen who face being prosecuted for manslaughter over the death of an Iraqi teenager were cleared a decade ago, after it emerged that key witnesses had lied about the claims and were paid expenses in exchange for their testimony.The Sunday Telegraph reported yesterday that three soldiers, including a decorated major, have been told that they could be charged in relation to the death of a 19-year-old who drowned in 2003, after the invasion of Iraq.The three men, two of whom are still serving soldiers, face becoming the first servicemen to be prosecuted as a result of criminal investigations carried out by the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (Ihat), which was set up in 2010 to examine allegations of abuse by troops.

British troops trying to keep the peace in Iraq in the aftermath of the 2003 invasionCredit:Getty Images Emails also showed that RMP special investigators took “strategic decisions” not to interview independent witnesses who backed up the soldiers’ description of what happened, and that a brigade commander thought the investigation “farcical”.Defence documents were also “lost” by Army prosecutors, who had previously ordered the investigation to be “temporarily discontinued” because of the unreliability of the Iraqi witnesses.Hilary Meredith, the lawyer acting for the major, who has two bravery medals and was wounded in Afghanistan, said this weekend that her client, had “lost his career and his sanity” over the claims. She added: “It is a disgrace. The death was investigated by the military, the case against the major dropped in 2006 and he was cleared.”A Ministry of Defence spokesman refused to comment on the claims, but said: “Our armed forces are rightly held to the highest standards and, whilst rare, where there are credible claims of criminal behaviour, we should investigate them. Stamping out the many spurious claims will mean Ihat is better able to focus on the few credible ones.” After just two days of the hearing, which had been scheduled to last 10, the defence barristers were able to show that two witnesses were not telling the truth, and had been promised payment for their testimony by the RMP, to cover their expenses.A military dossier leaked to the Telegraph in 2006, also showed that there was doubt that the body presented to the pathologist for post-mortem examination was in fact the man who had allegedly been killed.It was also claimed that an Iraqi witness had come forward to give a statement backing the soldiers’ version of events, but had been murdered by friends of the drowned man after being refused protection by RMPs.

Very soon we will all be forgotten Wantirna Park residents vow to

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram It’s the story of over 200 caravan park residents who lost their homes when property developer Longriver Group paid $36 million for Wantirna Park Caravan Park last year leaving those who had called it home – some for over 20 years – to relocate and rebuild, at their own cost. Some of the residents owned their homes but rented the land the homes stand on.Soon after purchasing the property, Longriver managing director Andrew Yu had attempted to raise residents’ rents by over 50 per cent. After a swift intervention by Consumer Affairs Victoria, park management lowered the increase. Still the rent costs were unaffordable for many residents. Then all residents received notices to vacate by early January 2018.As an incentive to leave the premises earlier, residents were advised that should they sign the paperwork and leave their homes by 10 July this year, their homes would remain and they could pay reduced rent until the final removal day. In Victoria, the Resident Tenancy Act 1997 * contains a loophole whereby caravan park tenants can be asked to vacate and not be compensated for their losses. Some homes were valued at over $150,000, and were sold for as little as $45,000 out of desperation by their owners. All residents, nevertheless, had to find a new location for their homes and pay for removal and demolition costs. Con Mylonas, a food services technician and father of three, was one of the residents who was impacted. “It was a beautiful place, homes everywhere, it was something,” he said, walking past the demolished homes at the Wantirna property. “My house was the house at the end. Look at the destruction. I’ve been here 14 years and I’ve taken loan after loan after loan to build a home that was a bit more respectable and had a bit more space for my three boys when my missus left, and now it’s gone just like that,” he said with an emphatic snap of the fingers. “We came here for a roof, and now they’ve taken the last little bit from us. We are pretty much homeless.” Mr Mylonas had built a three-bedroom home, and fitted out his property with paving, palms and olive trees, and a pergola. He says he happily raised his sons in his $150,000 home. But after he learned the park was closing, receiving notice to vacate in December 2016, he hired trucks and cranes to remove and relocate his home, at a cost of around $14,000. He began receiving sale offers of around $20,000, and received $4,000 support from the state government inclusive of bond money and one month’s rent in advance. He claims this was nowhere near enough but for those that were not eligible for public housing, this was their only option. Mr Mylonas temporarily relocated his family to a $1,800 per month rental home while he paid for the expenses to move his house to another caravan park in Longwarry. Mr Mylonas takes out his phone to display photos of his new residence. His anger subsides and he turns quiet andsolemn. “This is where I’m living,” he says as he scrolls through the photos on his iPhone. “A mobile home in the middle of a paddock. Nothing makes sense anymore. Of course it’s going to be more difficult to live there,” he said. Mr Mylonas’ new home is still getting set up. He finds himself without necessary amenities and he’ll need to continue to rely on bore water and a gas canister. “I’ve taken two weeks off work because I’m fatigued, I’m drained, I have to fix up my house and put it all together again at my cost,” Mr Mylonas said. His plan was to live at Wantirna when he retired, and pass his home onto his children when he passed away. Now, he says he has nothing to pass onto his three sons; a carpenter, concreter, and spray painter. Peter Gray, founder of the Wantirna Residents Action Group (WRAG) and 27-year resident said he knows the state government has to work within the law, but he maintains that in these situations, the government should “forget about the law”. The group want compensation for moving those homes, which can cost about $50,000 per building.Elsewhere, such as in New South Wales, the Residential (Land Lease) Communities Act 2013 (NSW) provides a scheme for compensation in circumstances similar to these at Wantirna. “We’ve never campaigned about the closure of the park; our campaign is about justice and affordable living,” said Mr Gray. He said that the developer is doing everything legally just not morally. WRAG wants the law fixed because “now it is allowing the owner to come in and treat us like blades of grass.“To come in and say ‘Okay, I’ve bought the land, now you can all go by a certain date’ without really looking at the ramifications of what his actions are causing [is the problem],” Mr Gray said. Of the 200 Wantirna Park Caravan Park residents affected, many were pensioners and elderly. Some support services were provided through the City of Knox including a hub of agencies set up in the park three days a week by the Department of Human Services, Villa Maria for aged care, EACH mental health, and Uniting Care Harrison. Funding has been provided, through these services, not directly to the residents. “We’re asking them to give us something at least the removal costs, these people are too old. They’ve got no money. How can you move a home when you’re getting your pension and expect them to come up with thousands of dollars to remove their house?” Mr Mylonas laments. He says his future is unknown. His life has changed since the closure of Wantirna but he says he has given up. “That’s what it makes me feel like doing. I don’t want to work anymore because all I’m doing in killing myself even more,” he said. He reflects on the media that have covered the issue, and wonders what will come of it. “Very soon we will all be forgotten. The developers win. The government wins. The council wins. The owners win. How about the people here? And we get zilch. Why don’t they look at us as human beings?”* The Residential Tenancies Act is currently under review by the state government.last_img read more

MovieBob Reviews POWER RANGERS 2017

first_img ‘Legend of the White Dragon’ Reunites Original Power RangersThe Original ‘Power Rangers’ Movie Should Have Stayed Small Stay on target Full disclosure: I was about 5 or 6 years too old when Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first hit to have any kind of real nostalgic appreciation for it. Outside of remembering my kid sister being way into it for about the first five years or so. Given that it’s my job to know about these things, I’ve since caught myself up with the help of a colleague and a true-blue fan’s exhaustive summarizing. But none the less, if you’re looking to find out whether or not this movie will “do the job” for genuine Power Rangers devotees I might not be the person to ask.What I can tell you is that, yes, Power Rangers effectively delivers on the promise of a big-budget blockbuster version of an episode of the original series. Wherein Rita Repulsa sends a giant monster to attack Angel Grove. The Rangers put on their costumes, do battle with an army of Putties, engage the monster using their Zords, combine said Zords into the singular Megazord. And ultimately save the day while delivering a heartfelt message about the importance of teamwork (and also the deliciousness of Krispy Kreme, which appears to have for a substantial portion of the film’s expenses.)Also just like an episode of the show: Everything described above covers about 25 minutes – total – of screentime.So before you get to that point (read: the climax), you’ve got to slog through about 90 minutes (for those keeping track. The average runtime of both previous movies in this franchise) of just about the most tedious origin story imaginable. We get to know our new cast of teenage heroes and have what might be the most forgettable franchise-starter mythology possible drilled into our heads by Bryan Cranston; who looks only slightly less happy to be here than Ben Affleck does about still having to make another Batman movie.The new angle at play here is that Cranston’s Zordon and Elizabeth Banks’ Rita were the original Red and Green Rangers back in dinosaur times; where she went evil, everybody else died, and Zordon wound up as a big floating head. Millions of years later, they are both reawakened when the Power Coins select a random quintet of local teenagers to be the new Rangers. The gimmick this time being that instead of five equally sunny best pals with one defining hobby and/or character trait each, we get five obnoxious After School Special caricatures who initially can’t stand each other with one defining set of emotional baggage apiece. Each one seemingly sourced by having someone’s great uncle run a Tumblr topic search for “What the kids are on about these days.”T o be sure: Credit is due for putting it right out front that the Blue Ranger is on the autism spectrum and the Yellow Ranger is being hassled by her parents because she’s gay (or “not straight,” at least); a pair of welcome decisions handled reasonably well. Unfortunately, the film is locked-in on the thematics of The Rangers all being “damaged and troubled.” To compliment a “gritty reboot” aesthetic that also reimagines Angel Grove as both a dying Midwestern mining town and a dying New England fishing village because someone couldn’t decide on only one generic symbol of hardscrabble middle-American impoverishment. The setup ends up equating identities like “autistic” and “gay” with the new Pink Ranger being a straight-up bully and a Red Ranger who’s… well, just an asshole, honestly. The Black Ranger, who has a genuinely sad backstory, receives the least amount of attention.Still, if you’re favorite thing in the world is watching a group of profoundly unlikeable brats awkwardly transition from being shitty and snarky to each other for almost no reason to exchanging Red Dawn levels of melodramatic brothers-in-arms foxhole devotion for even less reason? Power Rangers is the movie for you! Director Dean Isrealite is content to serve up an entire film’s worth of sub-John Hughes teen angst over parental misunderstanding, small-town inertia ennui and revenge-porn sexting scandals (really!). All before the CGI animation team and the second unity boys take over to deliver a Michael Bay’d up Power Rangers episode at the very end.And admittedly that modestly ambitious final blow-out is serviceable. If it was possible to give a damn about any of the characters or their various arcs despite 90 action-free minutes spent building them up, I might even be tempted to bump the ending up to passable. But the kids are all ciphers, Cranston is a grouchy bore-fest and even Elizabeth Banks’ much-hyped turn as Rita is a big letdown. There’s nothing to the character, and her whole presence feels really cynically contrived i.e. “If we stunt-cast an actual celebrity and just have her do weird, random, occasionally-gross camera mugging people will mistake it for quirky self-awareness!”In the end, Apart from the existentially devastating constant awareness of other, better things I could’ve been doing for 2 hours, I couldn’t for the life of me tell you who the prospective audience for this nonsense is supposed to be. It feels almost ashamed to even be a Power Rangers movie, so I don’t think it’s meant to be a nostalgia trip for the adult fans. It’s too long, talky and downbeat for the young kids who’re into the present-day version and despite all that self-serious moodiness, there’s no actual depth involved for older audiences who might otherwise have been more accommodating of a less action-oriented take.Like I said: I couldn’t tell you what hardcore Power Rangers fans might’ve wanted out of a movie, but if someone did this to something I’d loved as, say, an 8-year-old? My inclination might be (in the parlance of my 8-year-old self) to punch them in the taint.last_img read more

Study More than 20 Percent of Middle School Students Engaging in Sexting

first_imgMore than 20 percent of middle school age children are engaging in sexting, the act of sending racy text messages with or without an explicit photo, according to new research. In a study published in the February edition of the medical journal Pediatrics, the publication of the American Academy of Pediatrics, doctors found that sexting is happening at alarming rates among adolescents. Participation in sexting was linked to the increased likelihood of risky sexual behaviors. “Sexting behavior was not uncommon among middle school youth and co-occurred with sexual behavior,” the study’s authors wrote. “These data suggest that phone behaviors, even flirtatious messages, may be an indicator of risk. Clinicians, parents, and health programs should discuss sexting with early adolescents.” The study was conducted by doctors at the Bradley-Hasbro Children’s Research Center at the Rhode Island Hospital and The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, located in Providence, R.I. More than 70 seventh graders were asked to answer a computer survey regarding their sexual behavior, approved sexual activity, emotional intelligence, and intentions for sexual interactions. “Twenty-two percent of the sample reported having sexted in the past six months,” the report stated. “Sexual messages were endorsed by 17 percent, [with] sexual messages and photos [endorsed] by 5 percent.” Researchers found that adolescent girls and Latino middle schoolers had a higher incidence of endorsing sexts that included pictures. “Sexting of any kind was associated with higher rates of engaging in a variety of sexual behaviors, and sending photos was associated with higher rates of sexual activity than sending text messages only,” the report found. “This was true for a range of behaviors from touching genitals over clothes to oral sex, to vaginal sex.” While the Internet offers many benefits, it can also be a very dangerous place when illicit photos and text messages never meant for public viewing begin to circulate.The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children took up the issue with their NetSmartz Workshop, an effort to prevent teens from sexting before any embarrassing and emotionally detrimental consequences take place. The center recommends that teens think about possible outcomes of sending a naked photo to someone else that is underage. Consequences range from public humiliation to backlash from educational institutions teens apply to after their high school career. Teens are also encouraged to not forward sexts given to them by others, as this could lead to charges of child pornography. Increasingly, states are beginning to enforce laws meant to deter the trend. For instance, Georgia teens caught sexting with other individuals 18 or under could face a misdemeanor charge. “In 2013, at least nine states introduced bills or resolutions aimed at ‘sexting’—where minors send sexually explicit or nude or semi-nude photos by cell phone,” according to data from the National Conference of State Legislators. “At least three states—Arkansas, Georgia and West Virginia—enacted legislation in 2013.”last_img read more

A Day Of Power And Strength Epste

first_img by NPR News Colin Dwyer 8.27.19 3:06pm Updated at 2:30 p.m. ETJeffrey Epstein is dead, but that doesn’t mean his accusers have been silenced.On Tuesday, nearly three weeks after the wealthy financier and alleged sex trafficker took his own life in jail, a host of women and their attorneys took the stand to tell their stories. Judge Richard Berman decided last week that Epstein’s death — and prosecutors’ subsequent proposal to drop the charges — should not close the door on those who wish to speak about the case.”The Court believes that where, as here, a defendant has died before any judgment has been entered against him, the public may still have an informational interest in the process by which the prosecutor seeks dismissal of an indictment,” Berman wrote.About 20 women, many of whom chose to remain anonymous, gave their accounts Tuesday, along with prosecutors and defense attorneys, in a courtroom without cameras present. Afterward, two accusers stood before reporters at a news conference led mostly by their attorney, Gloria Allred.”All I’m going to say is today is a day of power and strength,” said one accuser, Teala Davies, in a brief statement before ceding the microphone to Allred.”It was wonderful, as far as they were concerned, to have this opportunity to be heard,” Allred said, commenting on how rare Tuesday’s hearing was. “I just received an invitation from the court last week, and I was just amazed because I’ve never received that in all my years of practice.”Despite Epstein’s absence, the hearing marks a milestone in the long, sordid saga surrounding the controversial financier. Long suspected of running a sex trafficking ring that targeted young girls in particular, Epstein managed to elude his accusers’ attempts to bring him to justice — and largely to keep their stories quiet. Most notably, his first major trial ended in 2008 with a lenient federal plea deal that allowed Epstein to plead guilty to a state charge of soliciting prostitution from a teenager and serve about a year in jail. He was allowed to leave the jail frequently during his time in custody; what’s more, his plea deal also sealed the agreement and largely hid it from his accusers and the public alike.It was not until last year’s investigation by the Miami Herald shed light on details of the deal that outrage over Epstein escalated again. That anger also led to the resignation of the man who had negotiated the agreement, Alexander Acosta. Acosta had been a U.S. attorney at the time and stepped down as labor secretary last month.A separate lawsuit packed with revealing testimony about the operation Epstein and his associate Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly ran with the help of others was left under seal for years, until a judge released a trove of documents related to the case. Those thousands of pages of documents, released just a day before Epstein’s death, contained claims that he and Maxwell recruited and used teenage girls for sex, often forcing them to have sex with other prominent men connected with Epstein.When Epstein died, many of his accusers feared they had once again been robbed of the chance to speak out in court.”I cannot say that I am pleased he committed suicide, but I am at peace knowing that he will not be able to hurt anyone else,” one of Epstein’s alleged victims wrote in a letter signed “Jane Doe” and posted to Twitter by her lawyer, Lisa Bloom. “However, a sad truth remains: I, along with other women, will never have an answer as to why; I will never have an apology for all the wrong doing; and, most importantly, Epstein will not be justly sentenced for his crimes.””In choosing death,” the woman added, “Epstein denied everyone justice.”Tuesday’s hearing might mark the end of the case against Epstein himself should Berman approve prosecutors’ request to dismiss the indictment, but other legal battles are far from over. Several of Epstein’s accusers have filed significant lawsuits against his estate, and prosecutors have vowed to pursue justice against his associates.The message that authorities are far from finished was a prevailing theme, according to NPR’s Cat Schuknecht, who was in the courtroom Tuesday. “My takeaway,” she says, “is that even if the case is dismissed, which is what they’re asking for, that they are reassuring everyone that investigations will be ongoing.”That’s in accordance with a pledge earlier this month by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.”To those brave young women who have already come forward and to the many others who have yet to do so, let me reiterate that we remain committed to standing for you,” the office said in a statement, “and our investigation of the conduct charged in the Indictment — which included a conspiracy count — remains ongoing.”Copyright 2019 NPR.

Obesity and diabetes increase bone fracture risk

first_imgDevelopment of obesity and Type-2 diabetes negatively affect bone structure, formation and strength over time, thereby increasing bone fracture risk, says a new study. The researchers also found that exercise can not only only prevent weight gain and diabetes but also increase bone strength.“Researchers once thought obesity was protective of bone because with more body mass, individuals have more bone mass and more bone mass typically decreases risk of osteoporosis and associated fractures,” said Pam Hinton, associate professor at University of Missouri in the US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“What we have come to realise is that the bone of people with obesity and Type-2 diabetes is not good quality bone. These individuals have an increased risk of fractures, so that extra body weight is not protective,” Hinton noted. For the study, the researchers allowed one group of rats to overeat and voluntarily exercise on running wheels.The researchers also had a control group of non-overeating rats that remained sedentary. They studied bones from rats in three groups at different ages to determine how early in the development of obesity and diabetes the bone was affected negatively.

However, the rats that exercised did not lose bone strength. In fact, the rats that ran on the wheels had stronger bones than the normal-weight controls,” Hinton explained.The findings appeared in the journal Metabolism.last_img read more

The Best Laptops for Mobile Entrepreneurs

first_imgA netbook with an HDMI output? HP gets credit for stuffing the Mini 311 with more features than you have any right to expect at this price.Best netbook HP Mini 311 (starting at $400) Samsung, Dell and Sony make solid low-end netbooks. But the nod for the ultramobile entrepreneur goes to Hewlett-Packard and its classic Mini 311. The 11.6-inch screen, nearly full-size keyboard, HDMI outputs and Windows 7 OS make this the mobile weapon of choice for the business user seeking that netbook vibe. Keep in mind, netbooks as a family have no CD or media drives and only work well for basic cloud-based business software–like running Google Apps, for example. But if that’sall you need, there is no reason not to go with a Mini 311. 9 min read Deride it as a generic if you want, but for tech-savvy entrepreneurs who can support their own machines, there is no reason not to go with MSI.Best off-brand notebook MSI CR620($660)Remember when most business owners never touched anything besides a Dell, HP or Apple? Those days are gone–and MSI is part of the reason. Made by Taiwanese company Micro-Star International, the MSI CR620 offers tremendous value for a work laptop. For a bit more than the cost of a well-done netbook, you get a 15.9-inch screen, a full-size keyboard and enough processing power for most business software. What you don’t get is the high design of the major brands or the handy support. But for a simple, stripped-down work computer, the MSI is unquestionably a good choice. Not the flashiest, but one of the most clever: Check out the state-of-the-art DisplayPort output, which generates an outrageous 2560 x 1600 resolution image. Impressive presentation skills.Best value desktop replacement Toshiba Tecra M11 (starting at $900)Most buyers overspend to get a notebook that will do away with their desktop, and then only move around with it once or twice a year. Toshiba hits the spot just right with the Tecra M11 series. Done in a grime-reducing, high-quality charcoal finish with a surprisingly nice 14-inch screen, the M11 is just big enough to do real work at the airport yet has enough processor oomph (from a choice of the Intel Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7) to drive a full keyboard and monitor back in the office. You can overwork the M11 with serious computation, graphics and engineering software, so this box is not a do-anything office workhorse. But for a reasonable spend, you get a solid, all-around desk PC that also struts its stuff on the go. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Yup, you really can drop the 31 onto a concrete floor from as high as 6 feet and not break it. A tough machine for tough guys.Best no-holds-barred ruggedized Panasonic ToughBook Model 31($3,800)Panasonic’s Toughbook line defines the high-end ruggedized notebook market, and its spanking new 31 sets the bar. Ridiculously full-featured–and ridiculously expensive–the 31 comes with just about anything a contractor or any other outdoor-oriented entrepreneur needs. It’s bright enough for outside, boasts a 13.1-inch touch-enabled screen and 11 hours of battery life. The unit is also dust-sealed, waterproof in everything but standing water and droppable from over your head–heck, it even has a heated hard drive for working in subfreezing temperatures. There are drawbacks: It weighs in at north of 11 pounds, and it’s far from the most comfortable PC to work on for hours on end. But show up with this sucker on the next job and everybody gets the message that you mean business. This story appears in the September 2010 issue of . Subscribe » Buying a laptop to fit your business is officially no longer easy. Previously unimaginable technologies and intense competition have spawned a new generation of business-class portable computers, each vying for a niche in the small-business world.Touch-enabled devices such as the iPhone and the iPad have blurred the boundaries of what a portable device is–and what it isn’t. Ubiquitous 64-bit operating systems like Windows 7 have helped PCs outstrip their Mac cousins in many performance metrics. Low-power LED screens have amped-up battery life and created a new class of smaller, cheaper netbooks. And ruggedized technologies spun out of the defense industry have found their way into ?ber-tough portable PCs. The wave of niche business notebooks is just starting to break. International research firm IDG estimates such notebooks will outsell desktops, controlling a 70 percent share of the PC market by 2012. That means businesses will need oodles of laptop savvy to find value in the market.Whether you’re looking for power, strength, value or style, here are our picks for top notebooks for entrepreneurs. It has none of the bells and whistles of other rugged computers, but its bright screen and airtight security modules make the P470 the value play for ruggedized PCs.Best value ruggedized GetAc P470 ($1,480)Not everybody who needs a rugged laptop can afford to drop three large to acquire one. For the rest of us, there’s the value-priced Getac and its affordable but still tough P470. Though it has none of the wow factor of other ruggedized super-boxes, its 14-inch screen is surprisingly visible outdoors and it sports a decent-size keyboard. Otherwise of note with the P470 is that the unit has some of the deepest security features on the market: Access to the PC can be controlled by a smart card reader, a fingerprint reader and a so-called Trusted Platform Chip, which keeps snooping eyes out of your business. Yup, you read that right: Jet from New York to London while working on one battery charge.Best high-end notebook PCat a less than high-end price Acer Aspire TimelineX 15.6 Inch ($750)There is no better PowerPC available at a non-PowerPC price than Acer’s new TimelineX series. This notebook is less than an inch thick and boasts a whopping eight hours of battery life. The unit sports a crisp 15-inch screen, weighs about 5 pounds and its Intel i7 processor offers top-tier performance. High-end computer modeling for engineers will probably be beyond the TimelineX, but not much else will be. A great value for such a high-end notebook.center_img Rugged, Mac-inspired magnesium case, reasonable performance and an international support network make this the box for on-the-go computing.Best midpriced portable withsupport plan Sony VAIO VPCS111FM/S from Best Buy($1,050)For high-touch service, most small-biz types lean to Apple and its national network of more than 200 stores and Genius Bars. But Best Buy gets our vote for sleeper small-business service provider. The company has its own branded notebook PC line, dubbed Blue Label, and the Sony Vaio is the pick of that line. Its magnesium case, backlit keys and punchy and crisp 13-inch screen make this unit a real steal–and its media-oriented processor, RAM and video card give it excellent performance power. Perhaps the only ding is its battery life, which averages a very average five hours. But Best Buy’s pay-as-you-go Geek Squad can send out an expert who is just down the road from basically anywhere. Call it reassurance on the fly. Cheapskates rejoice: Dell and company pour top-line power and features into a sub-$600 notebook. Not bad.Most stylish entry-level notebook Dell Vostro V13 (starting at $560) There’s nothing like a PC entrepreneur in free fall to spur innovation. But Dell’s harrowing collapse of market share is producing one heck of a line of business PCs, particularly its new Vostro V13, which has 2GB of RAM, a 13-inch screen, a well-designed, 4-pound form factor and–dare we say it–a real feel for good design. The metal hinges, subtle arrangement of media connectors and good use of color give this Vostro real panache. Nobody will need to know that you spent less than the price of an unlocked cell phone for a full-power portable PC. Don’t let the slimness fool you: The U150 is a true 64-bit computer. There’s a lot of performance power packed into this little machine.Best value ultralightLenovo IdeaPad u150 ($750)It’s nice to see a reasonably priced, reasonably powerful ultraportable for less than a grand. And Lenovo, the laptop line that used to be IBM, has done a great job with the U150.With its 3-pound form factor, decent 11-inch screen and svelte quarter-inch thickness–all surrounding a Windows 7 64-bit operating system–the U150 can handle real-world spreadsheets, graphics and other jobs. Stay away from lower-end configurations of the U150 with only 3GB of RAM; they cost less, but they won’t get the job done. Fully powered, though, this ultraportable is up to the task. August 23, 2010 High style trumps average performance. The carbon finish and sinister slick look are worth every penny–all 480,000 of them.BONUS: Best lookingSony Vaio Signature Series, Z12AHX Glossy Premium Carbon ($4,800)For flat-out fabulous looks, Sony is the leader with its Signature series. But those looks will cost you–and forking over nearly $5K for a basic laptop isn’t for everyone. Sony gets credit for trying to make it worth the extra dough with some nice adaptable graphics features and good use of expansion slots, but for such a high price, the performance is strictly average. What you’re paying for is style: It’s simply gorgeous. You could show up in sweats at your next pitch meeting toting this thing and still close the deal. It’s that cool. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Big, bright screen, nearly full-size keyboard and plenty of power make the MacBook Pro the go-anywhere laptop for Mac lovers.Best small-business apple portable MacBook Pro, 15 inch, 2.4GHz ($1,800)For Mac lovers, entry-level Apple portables like the MacBook or slick ultralights like the MacBook Air can be the perfect mobile business solution. But the Air’s limited keyboard, small screen size and lack of optical drives mean you’ll need extra peripherals, which jacks up the price. The smart Apple mobile buy right now, though pricey, is the entry-level, full-featured, 15-inch MacBook Pro. That single box is all you’ll need.

I have no idea — the harsh reality is it could be

first_img“I have no idea — the harsh reality is it could be,” he said. “I really hope it’s not, but we’ll see how that goes come offseason. But we still have two more games to finish, and I’m excited to play those games and I’ll give it my all every time I’m out there.”How about other guys?Campbell is not the only Cardinal starter who may not be back, though a couple other important players whose returns are in question are not set to become free agents. They are just, simply, at a point in their careers where nothing can be assumed.Speculation about both QB Carson Palmer, who turns 37 later this month, and Fitzgerald has swirled some, with some wondering if they will play again in 2017.Both are under contract, though that does not necessarily mean they will be back.According to Palmer, however, he has not really thought about whether or not his career will continue.“I haven’t even thought about that, but I expect to, I’d like to,” he said.The 33-year-old Fitzgerald, however, was a bit more vague.“I got two more games to go,” he said. “I will play those games as hard as I can against two division opponents and we will see what goes on this offseason. My attention is solely focused on Seattle this Saturday.” Finishing up the home slate with an LSince University of Phoenix Stadium opened in 2006, the Cardinals have been a pretty good home team.Under Bruce Arians, they’ve been exceptional. Up until this season, at least.Entering this season, the Cardinals had posted a 19-5 home record under Arians, with another victory being added if you include the playoffs. This season, however, they posted a 4-3-1 mark.“Yeah, and to lose all close games,” Arians lamented. “Those are the ones we’ve always won, and I thought when we closed this one down and got it tied that we’d go out and get them stopped.”The Cardinals finished with home wins over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins. They recorded losses to the New England Patriots, Los Angeles Rams and Saints. They tied the Seattle Seahawks.“This is a place where we’ve always prided ourselves on protecting and playing well and winning,” Fitzgerald said. “We’ve won a lot of tough, hard-fought games here over the years and just hearing that kind of makes me cringe because we are a much better team than we displayed this season, especially at home. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “But I told him that if he knocked the ball out of my hands we wouldn’t have been friends no longer,” Campbell joked.It was Campbell’s first NFL touchdown in nine seasons, all with the Cardinals.Larry Fitzgerald, who has been a teammate of Campbell’s for the defensive lineman’s entire career, noted there are two games left but that he’s hoping this is not it for him in Arizona. Fitzgerald said Campbell is “a wonderful person” who has done plenty both on the field and off it for the organization.“He’s a valued member of our franchise,” he added.With his two sacks Sunday, Campbell moved past Simeon Rice and into second place on the Cardinals’ all-time sacks list, with 54.5, and also extended his record for most seasons with at least six sacks by a defensive lineman, which is now up to seven.A two-time Pro Bowler, he is wrapping up another good season — and quite possibly his career in Arizona.As much as he’s thought about that, he said when he’s on the field his focus turns to competing with the team, living in the moment. But whether or not this was his last home game, he understands it’s possible. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories GLENDALE, Ariz. — If Sunday was indeed Calais Campbell’s final home game as a member of the Arizona Cardinals, he put on quite a show.Campbell finished the 48-41 loss to the New Orleans Saints with two sacks, two tackles for loss, a pair of QB hits and a fumble recovery that he took back 53 yards for a touchdown.The long-time Cardinal is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, and he has understood all along that there’s a chance he is not back. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell (93) celebrates his sack of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 18, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) So again, if this was his swan song — minus the loss — it was a solid way to go out, with a touchdown.“Before the game, I was getting chills in my back just thinking about the honor I’ve had to be able to play with this group of men and for this organization for as long as I have,” Campbell said after the game. “It’s been a complete honor being in this locker room and feeling all the history, it felt great.“I’ll tell you, when you’re out there playing football, when you have good players like that, those mean the world. They’re things you’ll remember forever. I wish we did it in a win, but it definitely feels good making a play like that.”Campbell credited teammate Markus Golden, whose sack of Drew Brees led to the fumble, and said he told himself after picking it up that as long as Peyton Manning was not on the field, he should be able to score a touchdown.Manning, you may recall, tackled Campbell after an interception in 2014 when it seemed like the defensive lineman had a pretty clear path to the end zone.On the play, Campbell was nearly caught from behind by Saints running back Tim Hightower, who along with Campbell joined the Cardinals as part of the team’s 2008 draft class. The defensive lineman said he felt Hightower getting close, which is why he pulled the ball up just a bit when he got to the end zone. “This is a place where teams come in and should fear because we play that well here.”The last time the Cardinals won their regular season home finale was in 2011, when they knocked off the Seahawks 23-20 in overtime. That team finished with an 8-8 record; this year’s team will finish with a worse mark.“Totally. Completely surprised; it’s been a long season. It’s been a tough season,” Palmer said. “But, it’s pretty cool to get to go to Seattle on Christmas Eve and fight for a win there. It’s obviously a great team, it’s a division opponent and it’s a lot of fun to play in that atmosphere, as it is for opponents to come in here and play in this atmosphere.“We’ll get to work on Seattle this week.”Follow Adam Green on Twitter Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Comments   Share   last_img read more
