According to Counterpoint Research, Chinese brands including Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and Realme controlled 81% of India s smartphone market, which is their all time high share. The pandemic coupled with anti China sentiment severely impacted their market share, which declined for the first time in almost two years.Counterpoint s research analyst Shilpi Jain said, This was mainly due to the mixture of stuttering supply for some major Chinese brands such as Oppo, Vivo and Realme, and growing anti China sentiment that was compounded by stringent actions taken by the government to ban more than 50 apps of Chinese origin and delay the import of goods from China amid extra scrutiny. This all resulted from India China border dispute during June . However, local manufacturing, R amp;D operations, attractive value for money offerings and strong channel entrenchment by Chinese brands leaves very few options for consumers to choose from, she added. Additionally, in the era of globalisation, it is difficult to label a product based on country of origin as components are being sourced from many different countries. This development has given a window of opportunity for brands like Samsung and local Indian brands, like Micromax and Lava, to recapture market share. Further, Jio Google s partnership to bring a highly affordable 4G Android smartphones could also gain ground, banking on the growing vocal for local sentiment, Jain added.A top industry executive, who did not wish to be identified, said Share of Indian brands shrunk from 16 18% in early 2015 to around 1% or even under as on date. Indians couldn t capitalise on the change from 3G to 4G. Chinese grew on that base and then ate into Korean and US firms share. They haven t looked back, till corona happened .The pandemic and lockdown also impacted domestic smartphone market with shipments during April June 2020 declining 51% y o y to a little over 18 million units. The disruption in supply chain during lockdown was so pronounced that April was a complete washout in terms of shipments. Covid 19 pandemic wiped out almost 40 days of production as well as sales of smartphones due to the nationwide lockdown. During May, the government allowed shops to open and online channel deliveries for non essential items. As a result, the market witnessed a surge in sales as lockdown restrictions were slowly lifted, said Prachir Singh, senior research analyst at Counterpoint.On supply side, the factories were shut down in April and started operating in May, which resulted in supply shortages for some manufacturers. Some brands maintained the supply of their products by importing fully assembled handsets. Additionally, last week of the quarter saw components being held up at customs, which also impacted the supply chain, he added.However, the market is returning to normal with June shipments registering only a small decline of 0.3% Y o Y, helped by pent up demand as well as a push from brands. Due to concerns over potential Covid infection, consumers prefer contactless purchasing and online channels. Smartphone brands are also recognising this trend by pushing more inventory to online channels, the agency pointed out.

But signs of hope and a fierce sense of determination are starting to show. A billboard on the outskirts reads lsquo;I love Mosul ', and I can see people really do. Buildings which once bore the brunt of the battle have been painted in bright colours. Walls once sprayed with bullet holes have been re plastered and roofs have been fixed. The streets, which used to be deadly quiet, are buzzing with people on the way to the market.There 's still a long way to go in the Old City, where Isis held out till the bitter end in the Great Mosque of al Nuri, where they had declared their caliphate in 2014. Every time I visit the area I 'm shocked at how much destruction there is. Buildings have been reduced to rubble following airstrikes, and some streets are still completely impassable. It 's the last part of Mosul that 's been left without any running water ndash; punishing in the 50 ordm;c heat. Incredibly, families are coming home, even though their houses have no roofs and some have walls missing. Some have been living in camps for years and have longed to come home for some time now. To finally be able to do that means a lot.
PROVIDENCE #x2014; An 800 pound antelope like animal escaped its enclosure at the Roger Williams Park Zoo on Tuesday morning, but was tranquilized and brought back into the exhibit before the zoo opened to the public, said zoo spokeswoman Diane Nahabedian.A zookeeper and veterinary intern were injured when the takin broke free during a routine hoof procedure and charged at the reinforced doors of its enclosure multiple times, she said.The staff member and the intern did not need to be taken to the hospital, she said.The takin, an animal originating in the Himalayan Mountains and western China, escaped its enclosure at around 9:05 a.m. and was loose in the zoo #x2019;s interior, she said.A team immediately responded with tranquilizers and rifles as backup, she said.

"We conducted a large scale GWAS using genetic information of more than 160,000 Japanese from the BioBank Japan Project," explains Masahiro Kanai, lead author of the study recently published in Nature Genetics. "We successfully identified 1,407 genetic variations in the genome sequence that affect 58 traits, including anthropometric, metabolic, kidney related, hematological, and blood pressure."The BioBank Japan Project, launched in 2003, enrolled 200,000 patients with 47 target diseases, making it one of the largest hospital based biobanks in the world. Without prior biological knowledge of cross phenotype relationships, the team's findings demonstrated that genetics clinical measurements successfully recapture their relevance to diseases, and thus could contribute to elucidation of unknown etiology and pathogenesis.
Tara Ward counts down the top ten moments from the twelfth episode of Outlander season three. Contains major spoilers, obviously. Nothing kills a party like a wild prophecy about a kid being 200 years old when it dies. It makes as much sense as Coco the Talking Nut and the Dunbonnet 's hair, yet when Margaret Campbell uttered her curse on this week 's episode of Outlander, I was shook to my core. I even stopped Googling there 's a big rock in my garden, can I travel through time if I put my hands on it ” for at least three minutes, so you know it got me good.In a prophecy more complicated than the time I put together a flat pack dining table, Margaret reckoned a new king will rise in Scotland upon the death of a child that is 200 years old on the day of its birth ”. While I worked out what the heck Margaret was wanging on about, Claire reunited with old mate Geillis Duncan, Jamie was recaptured by the Redcoats, and Lord John Grey gave everyone the side eye.
November 14, 2017According to the British Broadcasting Corporation, a secret deal allowed hundreds of Islamic State terrorists to flee Raqqa, Syria under the supervision of the U.S. led coalition and the Syrian Democratic Forces that spearheaded the city 's recapture in exchange for ending the battle. The agreement was reportedly arranged by local officials after four months of intense fighting left the de facto capital of ISIS ' self declared caliphate on the verge of collapse. The BBC claimed that among those permitted to escape were some of the Islamic State 's most notorious members, who have since spread out across Syria, perhaps even making it as far as Turkey. Witnesses cited in the report purported that the ISIS convoy departing Raqqa was up to seven kilometers long and included dozens of trucks, more than ten buses and an estimated one hundred other vehicles. In response, a spokesman for the Western coalition against ISIS admitted that about 250 terrorists were allowed to leave the city along with 3,500 family members and that a Western official was present at the preceding negotiations but did not take an "active part " in forging the accord. The revelation comes a day after U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis vowed to combat the Islamic State in Syria for "as long as they want to fight, " with the long term objective of preventing the emergence of "ISIS 2.0. "
