Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with borderless display could land by summer’s end


Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with borderless display could land by summer’s end

AFP Relax NewsJune 6, 2017
Specialist website Galaxy Club reports that Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the eagerly awaited Galaxy Note 8, is currently being tested ahead of official unveiling later this year at the IFA tech fair in Berlin, September 1-6, 2017.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (not to be confused with the brand’s former tablet of the same name) is apparently being tested with Android 7.1.1 (Nougat), rather than a beta version of Android 8. That could mean that the handset might be released earlier than expected, possibly in August or early September 2017, a few weeks before the official launch of Google’s next mobile operating system.

Like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, the Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to be getting a borderless Infinity display in spectacular 6.3-inch or 6.4-inch formats, each with the same aspect ratio (18.5:9) and resolution (QHD). In a major first for the South Korean manufacturer, the smartphone is rumored to have a dual camera, like Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus and the Huawei P10, for example. Finally, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is said to use either a Snapdragon 835 or an Exynos 8895 processor, depending on the region of sale, plus 6GB of RAM and a 64GB internal memory (with microSD card slot for expansion). It is also expected to have a fingerprint reader and ship with a stylus.

After the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, Samsung will have to work hard to make amends with consumers. Samsung had to halt sales, and subsequently the production, of the Note 7 smartphone, launched to much hype in the summer of 2016, after several cases of batteries catching fire when charging. This issue, caused by the phone’s lithium-ion battery overheating, is thought to have caused around 30 fire incidents with varying degrees of severity.

Children’s Day: Saraki, CSOs canvass domestication of Child Rights’ Law in states 


By Henry Umoru ABUJA– AS Nigerian Children mark this year’s Children’s day today, Senate President, Bukola Saraki and a group of Civil Society Organization (CSOs) yesterday called on all the states of the Federation to immediately begin the process of complete domestication and strict implementation of the Child Rights Act (CRA). This consensus was reached at a roundtable on “Advancing the Rights of the Nigerian Child” organized by the Office of the Senate President in commemoration of the 2017 Children’s Day celebration in Abuja. Personalities and CSOs that participated in the roundtable discussion included the Speaker of the Bauchi State House of Assembly, Alhaji Kauwa Damina, representatives of the European Union (EU), The Malala Foundation, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), National Council of Women Societies (NCWS), Youths of Africa, National Democratic Institute (NDI), Civil Society Legislative and Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), and a cross section of teachers, students and pupils from primary and secondary schools in Abuja. On his part, Senate President Saraki who particularly wished Nigerian children a happy celebration, said that the event was meant to celebrate the resilience and perseverance of Nigerian children in overcoming the many obstacles of childhood, adding, “With this in mind, we celebrate the recent release of the 82 Chibok girls and take time to make constructive and critical evaluation of our commitment to the next generation.” Saraki who lamented that out of every five children, two currently live in poverty, while millions were in poor housing, crowded rooms, squalid conditions, on streets and affected by communal conflicts and insurgency. He said, “This type of beginning can hold a child back for the rest of his or her life. At just 22 months, a poor child’s skills already trail behind those of better-off toddlers. At age five, that poor child, even if he or she is very bright, will have been overtaken at school by a less talented but more privileged class mate. “Releasing these children from that trap, unleashing their potentials is critical if we are to create a society that is truly fair. A starting point is to review what protection our laws offer this demographic vulnerability.” The Senate President stated that the existing laws which offer special protection to children and other vulnerable groups in the country include the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act, (VAPP Act, 2015) and the Child Rights Act (2003), adding, “These laws contain specific provisions to protect the Nigerian child. In order for our objective to be realized, much more needs to be done at all levels of State governance, but particularly at the local level, through meaningful cooperation and collaboration of all actors involved in the field of protecting children. “The need remains to establish well-functioning Child Protection Units, provide quality social services for child protection and empower families in need. “The domestication of the Child Rights Act has been concluded in 24 States. Other States are examining it to see how it relates to local sensitivities and values, and thereby make the law more relevant and effective. It is my hope that the scrutiny of the Act will enhance its inclusiveness and the comprehensive protection and the Nigerian child. According to him, domestication and strict implementation of CRA and VAPP are critical for success in the battle to raise a future generation of national torch bearers.

NEW: FIVE THINGS YOU MUST KNOW ABOUT LIFE.  15second read.

We all heard about the saying that life is short. Yes we know and we accept that it is. But there are other things you should know about life, that will help ease your passage through it.

IT GOES ON

With or without you in it, life continues. The birds will still fly, the grasses will still grow. The sun will keep rotating around the earth. Placing your life on hold because of others, feeling that without you, their life won’t go on. You are so wrong. They might take a minute or two to remember you but that is it.

KARMA IS REAL:

It is a 100% real. Feeling that you can do anything and get away with it is false. Don’t expect that you do evil and evil won’t come back to you. Do good to everybody you meet. You might not get an instant reward but knowing you put a smile on someone’s face is equally satisfying.

THE ONLY PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU IS YOU:

Think about it, who is going to care for you like you will. You are the only person responsible for the quality of life you live. Your failures, your success, your shortcomings, your achievement they are your responsibilities and no one else. Acknowledge this.

YOU CAN’T FORCE FRIENDSHIPS:

If someone does not want to be your friend, there is nothing you can do about it. Do not waste your time trying to force someone to like you, when there are other people who will without you stressing them.

LITTLE THINGS MATTER TOO:

Opening the door for an old lady. Allowing someone with a kid cut line in front of you. Giving up your seat on the bus for a pregnant lady. These little things matter. As insignificant as it may seem, it makes the world a better place to live in.
