HomeDevicesNews Qualcomm, Meizu end patent spat Qualcomm reached a worldwide patent licensing agreement with Chinese smartphone maker Meizu, ending a number of legal disputes between the two companies.The San Diego-based technology company said it granted Meizu a worldwide royalty-bearing patent licence to develop, manufacture and sell 3G and 4G devices. The royalties payable by Meizu in China are consistent with the terms of the rectification plan submitted by Qualcomm to China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC).Qualcomm agreed to a settlement with NDRC last year, after a long-running (and expensive) spat about its licensing practices and charges.In October, Qualcomm filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission, a patent infringement action with the Mannheim Regional Court in Germany, and an infringement-seizure action in France to obtain evidence for a further infringement case. Its spat with Meizu started in June, after failed negotiations.After filing that compliant in China, Qualcomm said “more than 100 other companies have already accepted the rectification plan terms, including the largest Chinese mobile device suppliers”.Meizu president Bai Yongxiang said in a statement: “We are determined to remove all obstacles, focus on products and focus on the future. It was a nice coincidence we are able to at this juncture push forward with the equal and fair negotiation with Qualcomm”.A week ago Qualcomm reached a similar worldwide agreement with Chinese device maker Gionee.

Tweet 55 Views no discussions Public Relations Officer of the Dominica Cancer Society, Vinna RoyerOne year followingHurricane Maria’s passage here in Dominica, the Dominica Cancer Society has tagged itself as also being resilient. Speaking with Vibes News on Monday, Public Relations Officer of the Dominica Cancer Society, Vinna Royer revealed that they lost just about everything housed at their location in Francis Lane, Goodwill. “Everything that we had accumulated, all the equipment and the furniture in there; we also stored supplies that we assisted our patients with and all of that was destroyed…off course you know after Maria it was not easy to make your way to anywhere and so by the time we got to the place and was able to look into what was there, most stuff was deteriorated so badly that we could not restore.”She said the Francis Lane location was put together with grants from the Australian government which she described as once being not only well furnished but comfortable. “We accommodated patients if they needed to stay over for treatment purposes,” she said. The Dominica Cancer Society she continued is in the process of starting over. Royer added that the Cancer Society recently moved to a new location, 30 McIntyre Lane opposite the Alpha Center. “That is where the Cancer Society can be found and it is important that we tell our patients that because we still need them to keep in touch with us and we’re still ready and always eager to serve.”She urged donors to continue giving to the Cancer Society which will enable them to continue the good work that they do. “Like all Dominicans we are resilient and we have jumped back into things and we are already assisting and reaching out to patients. We are urging everybody who has been used to being a benefactor of the Cancer Society that the need is still there for assistance, so whatever way you can assist the Cancer Society to do that.” Share FeaturedHurricane MariaLocalNews Dominica Cancer Society “resilient” following Hurricane Maria by: Dominica Vibes News – September 18, 2018 Share Share
One swing changed everything at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.Coming off three birdies and two pars saves that brought him to within one shot of the lead, Woods hammered a tee shot so far left on the par-5 16th hole that it went over the fence, into a backyard and out-of-bounds.A birdie or better turned into a bogey, and ultimately it didn’t matter when Rory McIlroy closed with five birdies in his last six holes to win. Woods made bogey from the bunker on the next hole and had to make a 12-foot par putt on the final hole for a 3-under 69 to finish eight shots behind.The margin didn’t reflect the anticipation that Woods might win in his remarkable return from a fourth back surgery.It was the second straight Sunday that Woods got within one shot of the lead on the back nine. His next stop is the Masters, which Woods has missed three times in the last four years and will be among the favorites at Augusta National for the first time in five years.Woods was bothered more by the mental mistake than the swing on the 16th hole.“I was caught. I didn’t decide what I was going to do,” Woods said. “That’s on me for not committing.”The 16th hole was playing shorter than usual at 496 yards with firm fairways. Woods didn’t hit the fairway the previous three rounds and still made birdie. He said his options were a driver that he could shape between the left rough and the bunkers on the right, or pound a driver over the bunkers, or simply hit a 3-wood down the fairway and have no more than an 8-iron into the green.He opted for driver, and then couldn’t decide whether to shape the shot or blast it.He blasted it, all right.Woods watched it sail to the left and hung his head when he received the signal that it was out-of-bounds. He drilled the next tee shot 358 yards down the middle, hit wedge to 25 feet and missed the par putt.“It’s not that hard of a hole,” Woods said. “I wasn’t committed to either one of the three shots I was supposed to hit.Woods won all eight of his titles at the Arnold Palmer Invitational playing in the final group. He was five shots behind going into the final round, though he had nine players — including three major champions — in front of him.He began creeping up on the leaders with birdies on the par 5s on the front. He was four shots behind going to the back nine when he began his run with five one-putts in five holes, three of them for birdie. When he made it from 15 feet on the fringe, he was one shot behind and the enormous crowd could be heard everywhere on the course.Woods still had plenty of work left, and he knew it.“Even though I got up there, I knew I had to keep making birdies. Those guys had so many holes behind me,” Woods said. “I got to 16 and figured I’ve got to play the last three in 3 under to have a chance. Even that wouldn’t be good enough the way Rory is playing back there.”Moments after Woods’ tee shot when out-of-bounds, McIlroy made birdie putts of 15 feet on No. 13 and 20 feet on No. 14, and if that wasn’t enough, he chipped in from 40 feet on the 15th to start pulling away.One thing was clear during the Florida swing. That red shirt on Sunday is back in vogue.Woods finished 12th at the Honda Classic, was a runner-up in his first time playing the Valspar Championship and tied for fifth at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.“If you would have asked me at the beginning of the year that I would have had a chance to win two golf tournaments, I would have taken that in a heartbeat,” he said.

(AP) — Tiger Woods put on a Sunday charge at Bay Hill that looked all too familiar.
There has been a cluster of “soap opera-ish” clouds hanging over the Pittsburgh Steelers since before the beginning of their 2018 season. Those clouds of uncertainty continue to loom over the well-being of the Black and Gold in particular as well as the Steeler nation in particular. I am now going to take on the role of “social meteorologist” and prognosticator regarding the present and possibly the future of the squad from the Steel City.Cloud #1, Le’Veon Bell: rain, rain, go away please don’t come back until after March 13, 2019. Before the 2018 season began, “As Le’Veon Turns” was the beginning of the soapbox era for the Steelers. Mr. Bell appears to be running at warp speed toward the NFL free agency market in 2019. He sat out the entire 2018 season and didn’t even show up to sign his 2018 franchise-tagged salary of about $14 million—as of today it appears as if he has now evolved into a thoroughbred “USDA dumba__.”According to TMZ: Bell told cops he “didn’t know you could get a DUI for being high… and admitted to smoking a couple hours before the incident.”After all of that drama and suspension, he was still welcomed back with open arms. The Steelers’ arms and hands were empty; Bell had a few hidden daggers waiting for the Steelers management and coaches to turn their backs even after he suffered two season-ending injuries.Cloud #2, Antonio Brown: the “team” called me! The “clown” named Brown allegedly purchased $500,000 worth of jewelry, yet allegedly got into a domestic dispute over money for a haircut!Brown seemed to be just an afterthought when the Steelers picked him in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL draft. He was the 22nd of 27 wide receivers selected in the draft. This former special teams ace (Brown was lucky to even make the 2010 squad) personally forfeited his role in the 2018 end-of-season game vs. the Cincinnati Bengals in a game that could have decided if the Steelers would have advanced to the playoffs. Brown and the apparently bitter ex-Steelers linebacker James Harrison watched, mocked and even appeared to celebrate Mike Tomlin’s 2018 season-ending press conference. This ungrateful behavior from Antonio Brown, a mere sixth round draft pick who did everything from begging, kissing boots and other things just to make the squad. The Steelers should ship Brown out on a submarine with a slow leak.Cloud #3, ex-Steeler James Harrison: brawny, definitely yes, brainy, maybe not so much. James Harrison, a linebacker cut three times previously by NFL teams, twice by the Steelers and once by the Ravens. Harrison was signed in 2003 by the Ravens after being cut by the Steelers in 2002. The Ravens sent him to NFL Europe before eventually releasing him. He re-signed with the Steelers; left Pittsburgh for a short stint with the Bengals. He returned to the Steelers, retired briefly, returned and signed with the Patriots until he retired for good at the end of the 2017 season. His new vocation is bashing Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin while simultaneously seeking fame, fortune, glory and attention in Hollywood. If he could lift weights with his brains, he’d be truly dangerous.Cloud #4, Ben Roethlisberger: the “untouchable one.” Once an NFL QB who could scramble and throw on the run as good as any signal-caller in history, oftentimes it seemed as if his second job was to screw up and wait for a bus to approach so that he could toss his teammates under it. On sheer numbers alone, Roethlisberger should be a lock to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. He admits that it is difficult for him to relate with some of his teammates. On that note, he may be a shoo-in for the “hall of shame.”The Steelers will eventually taste success again but they must remove the “social” cancers and drama in order to do so.

Introducing my new venture. Legends Only League, bringing back legends of all sports. @TysonLeague https://t.co/HllhUXyYG4 pic.twitter.com/647q4g5LTX— Mike Tyson (@MikeTyson) July 23, 2020 The fight will take place behind closed doors at Dignity Health Sports Park in California and be broadcast on pay-per-view.“You all still want to see these hands go? You all know I don’t know how to say, no,” said Roy Jones Jr. in a video posted on Twitter.In the footage, Roy Jones Jr., who like Tyson is considered one of the all-time greats of the sports, suggests he would have preferred to fight Tyson in 2003. Earlier this year, another former boxing champion, Andre Ward, said Jones turned down $40 million for a world title contest between the two in 2003. Jones first expressed interest in facing Tyson last month.At the time, Roy Jones Jr. had made history by capturing the World Boxing Association heavyweight title from John Ruiz Jr. Only one other former middleweight world champion, Bob Fitzsimmons, had successfully challenged for a heavyweight title—in 1897. Roy Jones Jr. won world titles in four different weight classes from middleweight to heavyweight during his career.Then, Tyson was in the closing stages of his career, having lost to British heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis in a title fight in 2002. Instead, Jones returned to the light heavyweight division, losing two of three matches in a memorable trilogy with Antonio Tarver before his career cooled.Tyson took to social media to post a series of videos showing off a renewed hunger for the sport with a series of training videos that suggest the 54-year-old still has much of the explosive punching power that brought 44 of his 54 wins by knockout. A promotional video released by Tyson to promote the fight also shows that Tyson and Jones both appear to have some gas left in the tank. The fight will be broadcast on pay-per-view and on the multimedia platform Triller, which is producing a ten-part docuseries about the fight.The bout comes as several other former boxing greats have teased comebacks in recent months. Former British world champion Nigel Benn announced that he would be returning to boxing at the age of 55 last year, more than 23 years since his last fight. Benn’s return was called off due to a sparring injury.Tyson’s apparent return to the ring has also prompted former multi-division boxing champion turned promoter Oscar De La Hoya, 47, to suggest he may launch his ring return.Besides the financial motivation, many of these former boxing stars seem inspired to end their boxing careers on a high note. Like Tyson, Oscar De La Hoya’s final fight was a stoppage loss. Tyson retired in 2005 following two back-to-back losses.“Human beings are not meant to be humbled,” Tyson said in a promotional video released today to promote the fight. The most significant event in sports this year may be a boxing battle between two former champions in their 50s.Once described as the “Baddest Man on the Planet,” former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is returning to the ring age 54. Tyson is planning to make a stunning return to the ring on Sept. 12, he announced Thursday.“Iron Mike” will fight an eight-round exhibition against another former heavyweight champion, Roy Jones Jr. — who is himself 51. The fighters will not use protective headgear, as is typical for exhibition bouts, but will use 20-ounce gloves, heavier than is typical for even heavyweight fighters, who weigh more than 200 lbs and usually contest fights with 12-once gloves. Added padding is meant to meant to provide better protection. Fighters older than 40 usually use 16-ounce gloves in competitive contests, though in his prime, Mike Tyson’s partners insisted the champion wear 18-ounce gloves so they would be better protected from his punches. Tyson appears to hope that many other former stars feel the same. His fight with Roy Jones Jr. will be the first event for a new “Legends Only League” series Tyson announced he is co-founding in another video released on social media Thursday. Legends Only League will pit nominally retired sports stars including boxers, soccer, basketball and baseball players in undisclosed competitive matches within their respective sports. The post ‘I. AM. BACK.’: Mike Tyson announces return to the ring appeared first on Zenger News.
