whatsapp Share CARPHONE Warehouse has today confirmed it will exclusively stock the new Google-phone, as revealed in City A.M. in October.Industry sources say Google is experimenting with its distribution model after releasing the previous Nexus model through a deal with carrier Vodafone in the UK.Google’s initial distribution model, which sold the handset exclusively through its website, was heavily criticised by users who had nowhere to direct questions. Google found its website swamped with complaints and was eventually forced to stock the phone in carriers’ stores to overcome the problem.Carphone Warehouse chief operating officer Andrew Harrison said: “I’m absolutely delighted that the Carphone Warehouse is working with Google to offer such a strong product exclusively to our customers.”The Nexus S – the first phone to run on the latest version of Google’s Android platform – will feature a contoured screen the firm says will fit the shape of a user’s face, as well as limiting glare.It will also come with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which allows the phone to read information from “smart” objects by touching the handset to anything embedded with a special microchip.The phone, manufactured by Samsung, will be available free with a contract.The Nexus One, built by HTC, failed to make a splash when it was released earlier this year, but Google’s Android software is now growing faster than phones powered by Apple or RIM.The release of a successor shows the Californian firm is committed to developing Google-branded phones as well as pushing its Android software. It is desperate to control the mobile advertising market, which rival Apple has made a significant push into, recently releasing a new iAds platform.

Specifically, the analysis starts by identifying years when the final yield estimate (typically January) is well above an in-sample calculation of trend and then traces the pattern of yield forecasts from August through the final estimate in January after harvest. That analysis can be more aptly identified as answering the question “did big crops get bigger.” Irwin and Good go on to analyze whether crops that are expected to be big actually get bigger. Will Our Big Crop Get Bigger? Facebook Twitter The USDA’s August Crop Production report forecast the 2014 U.S. average corn yield at 167.4 bushels per acre. That exceeds the previous record yield of 164.7 bushels in 2009. The market expectation is that yields will increase in future USDA reports in September and October. Reports from the crop tour this week seem to support that assumption. In years when the final yield estimate is well above trend, the USDA forecast of the average yield tends to increase from August forward. Recent research by University of Illinois ag economists Scott Irwin and Darrel Good documents this tendency in USDA corn and soybean forecasts. However, these same authors argue that the shortcoming of this type of analysis is that it is backward-looking. History suggests that the September forecast will give some indication of the direction of change in yield forecasts from August to January, but will not provide much insight on the possible magnitude of change. Many analysts are on record anticipating that the final yield estimate will be well above the August forecast of 167.4 bushels, and it appears that the corn market is trading a much higher yield. Much of the expected yield increase is based on the concept that “big crops get bigger,” with support also coming from relatively high crop condition ratings late in the season. Home Indiana Agriculture News Will Our Big Crop Get Bigger? They identify years when the August USDA forecast is large relative to an out-of-sample trend yield estimate and then test whether forecast changes in following USDA Crop Production reports (September, October, November, and January) can be predicted based on the trend-deviation of the August forecast. Very little evidence for either corn or soybeans is found that “big crops get bigger” (or “small crops get smaller”) based on this forward-looking analysis. The authors conclude that, “…this bias may appear obvious to market analysts in hindsight but it is difficult to anticipate.” SHARE SHARE The U of I analysis however, reveals that:1) historically, not all big crops get bigger2) weather conditions through July were not completely consistent with an average corn yield that has one of the highest positive deviations from trend3) average August temperatures this year may not be consistent with a large increase in the USDA yield forecast from August to January. By Gary Truitt – Aug 20, 2014 These results do not imply that the U.S. average corn yield this year will not be large and will not increase, only that such outcomes would be highly unique given the nature of the growing season.

Several local publications and regional TV stations are paralysed because their personnel cannot leave their homes and several reporters have been beaten by police. A total of 94 people have been killed since the violence and unrest erupted in Kashmir last June.“Trying to maintain order should not be confused with preventing the media from working,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Jammu and Kashmir state authorities and the security forces that are enforcing the curfew are failing to consider the importance of the local media’s work, or else there is an undeclared intention to prevent Kashmir’s media from operating during the protests.”Even if the authorities have granted many curfew passes to journalists based in Srinagar, the state capital, the police and paramilitaries operating in the city are preventing journalists from circulating and from going to their place of work, and the circulation of newspapers has been hampered.The main news programmes on the regional TV stations, especially Sen TV, Take 1 and Mouj Kashmir, have been suspended for the past few days. The authorities have also been pressuring some of these stations’ executives to suspend their broadcast coverage of the protests.According to several sources, the authorities are also pressuring cable TV operators to stop transmitting local TV stations and Pakistani stations. Press TV, an Iranian English-language station, was banned after broadcasting controversial footage of the supposed desecration of copies of the Koran.As a result of the curfew, the regional dailies Greater Kashmir , Kashmir Times and Rising Kashmir are no longer being printed in Srinagar. Radio Kashmir had to cancel its morning press review because of the lack of newspapers. Greater Kashmir reported on its website that the newspaper has not been available in print form in Srinagar since 14 September but it is continuing to publish a full version on the website.In one of the latest cases of violence against journalists, Sanam Ajaz, the assistant managing director of the local operations of privately-owned JK Networks, was attacked and beaten by policemen as he was going to his office on 15 September although he had a curfew pass. A recent statement by the Kashmir Press Association accused the authorities of facilitating the work of journalists from New Delhi while imposing harsh restrictions on those who are based in Kashmir.
