Tweet NewsRegional ‘Dead’ man shows up at his wake by: – April 20, 2018 Sharing is caring! Share 153 Views no discussions Share Share Arnold Buxo (left) and Errol Ramsaran who spread the news that Arnold had drowned.(Trinidad Express) Arnold Buxo, the man feared drowned in the Gulf of Paria on Wednesday, says he never knew so many people had liked him.Buxo, 49, said he was heartened by the outpouring of love and concern by friends and neighbours who thought he was a dead man.The Bamboo Village, South Oropouche resident had gone to the Mosquito Creek with a friend, Errol Ramsaran, when he dived into the Godineau River.Buxo did not resurface after 45 minutes and his friend began a frantic search.A report was filed at the San Fernando police station and the T&T Coast Guard was contacted.Divers began searching for Buxo on Thursday morning.Unknown to everyone, Buxo had made his way back home and went to bed.“I came out of the water and didn’t see my clothes and slippers. I hustled a shorts from a man. I sell my conchs and then lime a little. I drink puncheon and we cook on the beach. Then I went home. I didn’t know all this was going on. I went straight home and take a sleep,” he said.But when he woke up around midday on Thursday, Buxo found preparations for his wake ongoing.“Imagine I wake up and they planning my wake. I walk outside and saw a neighbour told me what was going on. I never know so many people like me. They even start planning my funeral and get discount at the funeral home too. They were very concerned,” he said.Buxo lives alone and sells conch and crab for a living.Councillor Doodnath Mayrhoo said he was contacted by residents on Thursday.“I was told that he drowned and we needed to put together a wake and funeral. I was assisting the neighbours and friends when he walked out the house. He said he came out the water and walked down the river. When he got back he didn’t see his clothes. He lime a little and then went home and sleep. The coast guard was contacted and divers were already searching for a body. I am happy he is alive and well,” he said.
Si477x AM/FM, a high performance radio receiver delivers Superior RF Performance While Reducing System Cost for High-End Consumer and Professional Audio Equipment Silicon Laboratories Inc. a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, today introduced a family of advanced AM/FM receivers tuned for the high-end consumer and professional audio equipment market. The new Si477x AM/FM receivers provide industry-leading RF performance and exceptional configurability while reducing system cost and complexity for consumer audio/video receivers (AVRs), FM receiver monitors and pro-audio receivers. To optimize audio performance, high-end consumer and pro-audio equipment makers typically build discrete AM/FM receiver designs from manually tuned inductors and multiple active components. These complicated, hand-crafted receiver designs result in limited configurability, fewer end-customer features, higher cost, and extensive manufacturing overhead and test time. The discrete approach also suffers from overload in strong signal environments, causing degradation in audio quality, particularly for weaker signals. In contrast, Silicon Labs’ highly integrated AM/FM receiver design improves robustness and delivers superior audio quality in all reception conditions while reducing system cost and complexity. Silicon Labs’ Si477x family includes two feature-rich, single-chip devices: the Si4770, a global multiband AM/FM receiver, and the Si4777, an AM/FM receiver supporting HD Radio tuner functionality. Silicon Labs designed the Si477x receivers to reduce the bill of materials (BOM) for high-end consumer and pro-audio applications while enhancing design flexibility and delivering outstanding performance. The Si477x family leverages Silicon Labs’ patented digital low-intermediate-frequency (low-IF) architecture to deliver superior audio quality under the most demanding environments. The Si477x family offers unsurpassed RF sensitivity, adjacent and alternate channel selectivity, linearity and audio fidelity through advanced DSP algorithms. With -3.5 dBµV sensitivity, the Si477x receivers can tune to signals down to 0.67 µV, picking up stations up to 100 miles away. Featuring a highly linear RF front end and sophisticated RF and IF automatic gain control (AGC) coupled with a state-of-the-art dynamic bandwidth control algorithm, the Si477x receivers optimize sensitivity and selectivity in strong signal environments, enabling outstanding reception at all times and conditions. The Si477x family’s best-in-class selectivity (65 dB at ±100 kHz and 72 dB at ±200 kHz frequency offset from the desired station) sets a new standard for tuning weaker stations buried among stronger ones in today’s crowded spectrum. The Si477x receivers also feature an on-chip “prosumer” FM channel equalizer designed to eliminate multipath fading and deliver optimal performance under complex multipath interference conditions present in urban settings. The equalizer’s patented adaptation algorithm corrects for multipath fading, which occurs when a radio station’s signal reaches the receiver along with time-shifted versions of the station’s same signal reflected off of buildings and other large objects. The equalizer significantly reduces audio distortion with fewer sound-compromising mitigation fixes applied to the audio. This high-performance FM channel equalizer is the first of its kind in the audio industry. The Si477x family provides excellent performance with Silicon Labs’ recommended default property settings, and it also delivers outstanding flexibility, allowing developers to customize audio and system performance according to their individual preferences. This high level of configurability enables developers to tweak their audio designs to achieve a particular “sound” that is unique to their audio product brand. “Silicon Labs’ high-performance Si477x receiver family provides the best value and system cost savings for high-end consumer and pro-audio audio systems without compromising one decibel of radio performance.” said James Stansberry, vice president and general manager of Silicon Labs’ broadcast products. “Audio equipment developers evaluating radio receiver solutions will appreciate the exceptional RF performance, single-chip integration, design simplicity and configurability that the Si477x family offers.” The Si4770 and Si4777 receiver products are pin compatible, simplifying system design efforts across multiple high-end audio equipment platforms. Since the device footprints are identical, developers can design one board and use either the Si4770 or Si4777 with a different back end to scale between HD Radio and non-HD Radio solutions. Pricing and Availability Samples and production quantities of the Si477x AM/FM receivers are available now in a compact 6 mm x 6 mm 40-pin QFN package. The Si4770 receiver is priced at $5.26, and the Si4777 receiver supporting HD Radio is priced at $6.31, both in 10,000-unit quantities. To ease radio system design, Silicon Labs offers the Si4770-A-EVB evaluation board priced at $500 and the Si4770Module-A-EVB priced at $150. (All prices are in USD.)

After the news broke that Tristan Thompson signed a guaranteed contract with the Cavaliers for $82 million a good portion of the fan base welcomed him back to Cleveland and was happy to have the matter resolved before the season opener.Thompson is a reliable player who averaged 11 rebounds per game in the postseason and has played in 308 consecutive games between the regular season and playoffs combined, something that makes him especially valuable on a team that is vulnerable when it comes to staying healthy.This didn’t stop a certain segment of fans from calling Thompson “worthless” or “a bum.”All around Cleveland, fans are complaining that Thompson does not deserve to be the sixth highest-paid power forward in the NBA because he doesn’t score enough points.It may be hard to fathom, but basketball is about much more than scoring.The second chance points that Thompson creates with his offensive rebounding and hustle are just as valuable, if not more so than if he made two extra field goals per game and was an average rebounder.The Cavs are loaded with scorers, especially when everyone is healthy.LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and J.R. Smith are all capable of going off for 20 to 30 points any given night. New addition Mo Williams is also a capable scorer.Thompson brings abilities to this team that are hard to find on the roster: offensive rebounding and availability.He has the second longest active streak of consecutive games played in the regular season, only behind DeAndre Jordan of the Clippers.I don’t remember people calling Thompson a bum when Love was injured for 16 of 20 playoff games. By the way he’s making $110 million for five years.As far as the money goes, it’s fair to say there are more than five power forwards who deserve more money than Thompson; and when the salary cap goes up because of a new TV deal for the NBA, those players will get much bigger contracts than what Thompson received.If Thompson waited a year to sign a long-term deal, he could have gotten more money entering the 2016-2017 season.Let’s rewind to July. When the Cavaliers offered Thompson a five year deal for $80 million where was the outrage from the fan base?Now he signs for $2 million more and is vilified.The Cavaliers now have the highest payroll in NBA history at approximately $115 million and are the odds on favorite to win the Finals.Every year we hear fans gripe about how owners in this town don’t spend any money; and then when they do it’s too much and causes an uproar.Dan Gilbert is putting his money where his mouth is, proving that “all-in” is more than a slogan. It’s a team philosophy from the front office all the way down to every level of this organization.It all leads me to the conclusion that sports fans in this town don’t know how to handle having a winning team. All they know how to do is complain. When the Cavs have a championship parade, fans will complain that they hold it on a weekday.

By Mark GleesonMOSCOW (Reuters) – When teenager Kylian Mbappe netted France’s fourth goal in the World Cup final, thoughts turned to the possibility that the French could go on to emulate the dominant Brazilian teams led by their great striker Pele.The 19-year-old Mbappe became only the second teenager after Pele to score in a World Cup final as a talent-laden French side overcame resilient Croatia 4-2 to win the sport’s top prize for the second time, 20 years after their first triumph.Pele did it at the age of 17 in 1958, sparking a period of dominance as Brazil won three World Cups in a 12-year period culminating in a one-sided final victory over Italy in 1970. While there are growing comparisons between Mbappe and Pele, the Parisian still has a long way to go to even come close to matching the achievements of the great Brazilian.But the precocious Mbappe could be one of the pillars of a French team with the potential to dominate the world game in the way Pele and his team mates did from the late 50s through to 1970. Alongside Antoine Griezmann, voted man of the match in Sunday’s final in Moscow, in attack, with Paul Pogba in the midfield engine room and the powerful Samuel Umtiti and Raphael Varane in defence, France have a firm foundation to build on.Their World Cup squad had an average age of just over 26 and they have an abundance of world-class players but the way the team negotiated the tournament with intelligence and fortitude gives even greater cause for optimism for the future. France were efficient, calculating, clever and in command in most of their matches without showing a huge amount of entertaining flair.In all seven games they played in Russia they had an average of 48 percent possession, doing the hard work off the ball. Tactically they were able to adapt throughout the tournament and show flexibility — the hallmark of a successful squad.Their chances of continuing on a winning path are also increased by the fact coach Didier Deschamps, very popular with his players, is staying in the job for at least two more years. He has a contract until the end of the 2020 European Championship but with such enormous potential to build on he will surely be tempted to extend his reign.“Today there were imperfections, we did not do everything right but we had those mental and psychological qualities which were decisive for this World Cup,” Deschamps said after the final.With such qualities, there is legitimate cause to believe there will be more glory-filled days for French football.
NEW YORK — To hear Kevin Stallings tell it, Damian Jones may be Vanderbilt’s most indispensable player.La Salle may agree with his viewpoint.Jones’ 16 points led four players in double-figure as Vanderbilt topped La Salle 68-55 in the consolation game of the Barclays Center Classic Saturday night.“Damian was pretty effective,” Stallings said. “I thought he was very, very effective especially early on when we were able to take control of the game. He’s getting better and better. The better he gets, of course the better it will be for our team.”Riley LaChance had 14, and Luke Kornet and James Siakam added 10 apiece as Vanderbilt improved to 5-1. Vanderbilt Commodores forward Jeff Roberson (11) drives past La Salle Explorers center Steve Zack (0) during the first half at Barclays Center.La Salle’s Jarrell Wright led all scorers with 19 points, but the Explorers fell to 4-2 with their second loss in as many games. Steve Zack added 11 points.“We need to get better,” La Salle coach Dr. John Giannini said. “We came here to be tested and frankly we failed our test this weekend.”Vanderbilt turned its 30-20 halftime lead into a 17-point advantage (45-28) after Kornet’s left-wing 3 4:14 into the second half. La Salle wouldn’t get closer than 12 the rest of the way despite shooting 43.1 percent from the field.Among the primary reasons was the Commodores proficiency from the foul line. Vanderbilt made six-of-nine from the stripe in the second half, including making five in the final 3:36. The Commodores finished 12-of-16 from the lineWade Baldwin IV made five-of-six from the line for Vanderbilt. Jones was four-for-five, while Jeff Roberson was three-for-four.By comparison, La Salle was only 7-for-11 from the line.Vanderbilt also took care of the ball, committing just seven turnovers while recording 14 assists on 26 baskets. Baldwin and Shelton Mitchell tied La Salle’s D.J. Peterson with a game-high four assists.But La Salle committed 10 turnovers against 11 assists.“We’re a pretty good defensive team for the most part, when you look at (opponents shooting) percentages against us and things like that,” Stallings said. “Even (in the semifinal loss to Rutgers), they shot 39 percent for the game and only 31 percent on their first-shot attempts. I thought we defended (Rutgers) well in the first half (and) we did not defend them well in the second half. They made some shots on us from the perimeter.“I though the key to (this) game was the job Jeff Roberson did on Jordan Price.”Price finished with nine points on 3-of-10 shooting and committed three turnovers.Vanderbilt improved to 2-0 all-time against La Salle. The other meeting between the SEC and A-10 programs was a 100-95 win for the Commodores on Dec. 17, 1966.Vanderbilt hosts Baylor on Dec. 4.
Alvaro Morata is planning to leave Chelsea and return to Spain in the winter market and the striker has been offered to Barcelona, while Marca reported that he also sees a move to Atletico Madrid with good eyes. Today’s edition of Mundo Deportivo has two updates about the 26-year-old.The first one has a headline ‘Morata, first option’ for the La Liga winners, who are in search of a new No 9 following Munir El Haddadi’s exit.It’s explained that late on Wednesday, the former Real Madrid man was the first option to join the La Liga winners, but no deal has been closed for the player, who is also on the radar of the Europa League winners.The economic conditions for the deal to take shape have restricted the Blaugrana from giving the green signal as they still continue to the idea of bringing the Blues frontman either on loan or a transfer with lower economic conditions.Journalist Miguel Rico, writing on the last page of the Catalan newspaper brings the second update on Morata. He claims that there is more interest from Barca in the Spain international than shown by the sporting leaders.Rico explains that if Barcelona sign Morata, he can be an option for ‘present and future’. The attacker could be considered as a long-term successor for Luis Suarez at the Camp Nou, while playing as a deputy for the time being.Reports in England and Italy claim that Chelsea have agreed a deal with Juventus for Gonzalo Higuain and his arrival at Stamford Bridge should speed up Morata’s exit from the club.The question is which club will he join in January?by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comTop Successful Single Men in Tung ChungDating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉（今晚試試）Keto减肥UndoCNBC InternationalHere’s How Big Businesses in Singapore Are Managing the Impact of COVID-19.CNBC InternationalUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystWill Blockchain Reduce the Global Trade Finance Gap to Reach the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?StanChart by CNBC CatalystUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50Undo
