We're delivering solid performance across our portfolio, in all regions, and on key financial metrics," said Dion Weisler, president and CEO of HP. To help continue this growth, HP said it will carry on investing across its business sectors and, although desktops are declining worldwide, its notebooks category continues to sell well to businesses. "Our team is taking profitable share, out-executing our competitors and delivering some of the best innovation in HP's history. It's clear our reinvention is paying off," Weisler said. HP predicts its revenues for the third quarter will also exceed projections, which would mean its total for 2017 will also be significantly higher than it initially expected. facebook twitter google+ Laptops News Clare Hopping May 30, 2017

Juno's Revelations NASA's Juno spacecraft has just revealed a wealth of new information about our Solar System's biggest resident, Jupiter, and it's now clear that everything we thought we knew about the gas giant may have been wrong . The first observations were made when the spacecraft dipped closer to the tops of the clouds covering the planets' surface and passed over the poles. “What we've learned so far is Earth-shattering. Or should I say, Jupiter-shattering,” Juno's principal investigator at the South Research Institute, Scott Bolton, said in a press release . “Discoveries about its composition, magnetosphere, and poles are as stunning as the photographs the mission is generating.” At the planets' poles, there are massive, oval-shaped cyclones, completely different from the polar regions observed on Saturn. Some of these cyclones were observed to be so enormous that they approached widths of 1,400 kilometers (900 miles), making them 10 times larger than the most massive cyclones seen on Earth.

Forecasts of gross yields of fruit and berries, including grapes, have been lowered by 29 percent due to May frosts reported almost in all regions of Ukraine. The national forecast of yields of fruit and berries was reduced from 2.473 million to 1.755 million tonnes, the Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food Ministry said on its website, citing reports it had received from regional administrations. Stone fruit crops were hit by the frosts most, the forecast of their harvest was reduced by 39 percent, to 292,000 tonnes. In particular, the yield of apricots is projected at 33,300 tonnes, that of peaches and nectarines at 9,700 tonnes. Their earlier forecasts were 71,000 tonnes and 18,000 tonnes, respectively. The ministry projects that the loss of the yield of grapes will be 13 percent. Farmers are expected to gather 333,000 tonnes of grapes this year against the previously projected 380,000 tonnes.

More importantly, their seismometer differs from conventional designs in that it does not rely on a mass-and-spring sensor. Such a design would be ill-suited for a mission to another body in our Solar System since it needs to be positioned upright, which requires that it be carefully planted and not disturbed. What’s more, the sensor needs to be placed within a complete vacuum to ensure accurate measurements. By using a micro-electrical system with a liquid electrolyte for a sensor, Yu and his team have created a seismometer that can operate under a wider range of conditions. “Our design avoids all these problems,” he said. “This design has a high sensitivity to a wide range of vibrations, and it can operate at any angle to the surface.

0-inch 720 x 1280 screen, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, an 8MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing one, and at least in some regions NFC. Quandt also claims that the Moto E4 will cost $249.99 in Canada, which amounts to roughly $185/145/AU$250. That would make the E4 a fair bit more expensive than the Moto E3, which launched at around $130/100/AU$170. Hopefully that part of the rumor is wrong then, but if the launch date is right we should know soon. The Moto E4 Plus is likely to land alongside it with a huge battery .

Sometimes the public paints it with a broad brush, 'Oh they’re wasting money,'” Williams said. “Well, even if we cleaned up everything, we still couldnt afford the infrastructure for broadband.” Williams has applied to the Appalachian Regional Commission for a grant to help the school. The commission and a handful of others like it combine federal dollars with state, local and private money to boost economic development and job growth in the poorest regions of the country. All these commissions would be eliminated under the Trump plan. Of $3.5 trillion in federal outlays in 2014, nearly $589 billion was in the form of grants directly to states, localities, individuals and nonprofits, according to research from Pew Charitable Trusts. In Tennessee, that added up to almost $2,000 per person. “The federal budget is not just a national story, it really is a state-by-state story,” said Anne Stauffer, director of Pew’s Fiscal Federalism program.

Joko Widodo, commonly known as Jokowi, was elected president of Indonesia, one of Asia's leading economies - and the country with the largest Muslim population in the world - in October 2014. He rose to power promising to be "the people's president" and with an initial approval rating of 70 percent, expectations were high. His dreams of further improving the country's economy - especially for the poor - and to fight corruption and bureaucracy, however, were very ambitious. He promised to transform Indonesia's infrastructure to interconnect its most remote regions, a project at an estimated cost of over $1tn. But only in 2015, Indonesia's economy, South Asia's largest, was growing at its lowest rate in six years. Meanwhile, the president's tough approach on drugs - including his push to execute drug traffickers - have created diplomatic tensions since many of the accused have been foreign nationals.

38, depression by 0.3, and pain by 0.33. While this is not a huge margin, it is as effective as anti-depressant drugs or exercise, which means that doctors have another tool in their arsenal, and can recommend an alternative treatment for those who cannot exercise and/or do not want to take drugs. Increasing grey matter and combating aging: a study in Frontiers of Psychology shows that meditation can increase the volume of grey matter in the brain significantly. Florian Kurth, a University of California Postdoctoral Scholar in Neurology, one of the authors of the study, said , We expected rather small and distinct effects [...] what we actually observed was a widespread effect of meditation that encompassed regions throughout the entire brain. This was enforced by Sara Lazar , a neuroscientist at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, who found that in this one region of the prefrontal cortex, 50-year-old meditators had the same amount of grey matter as 25-year-olds.

Rights groups called on Myanmar's government to investigate whether troops were responsible. "The Myanmar authorities should immediately investigate this footage, and with urgency the authority should determine the well-being and whereabouts of the men detained in the footage," said Matthew Smith from Fortify Rights. Myanmar's border regions have burned for decades with insurgencies led by ethnic minority militias fighting for greater autonomy. Suu Kyi has made signing a nationwide peace deal a priority of her government with the latest round of peace talks currently underway in Naypyidaw. But the peace process has had limited success so far. Under Myanmar's junta-era constitution Suu Kyi has little control over the military and fighting between the army and ethnic rebels is currently at its most ferocious in years. After decades of crippling junta rule, distrust of Myanmar's notoriously abusive military runs deep, especially among ethnic rebel groups.
