TSX registers biggest one-day loss in five months

first_img TSX gets lift from financials, U.S. markets rise to highest since March S&P/TSX composite hits highest close since March on strength of financials sector Related news Linda Nguyen Keywords Marketwatch Toronto stock market dips on weakness in the energy and financials sectorscenter_img The last time the TSX registered a loss of such magnitude was in September, when it fell 248.04 points. Investors have been growing increasingly concerned the anticipated outcomes of U.S. President Donald Trump’s policy promises may not pan out, said Todd Mattina, chief economist at Mackenzie Investments. “The markets are continuing to wait and see, looking for more clarity from President Trump about his economic package,” Mattina said. “Especially the timing and size of his tax cuts, especially how President Trump intends to pay for those tax cuts.” The American leader is expected to speak to a joint session of U.S. Congress on Feb. 28 and investors will be all ears to see if he reveals any more details about his business-friendly policies. North American stock markets have been buoyed since the U.S. election in mid-November by expectations Trump will follow through with campaign promises of deregulation, lowering corporate taxes and engaging in massive infrastructure spending — which would be a boon for industries such as banking and manufacturing. Last week, indices in Toronto and New York rallied to all-time record highs for several consecutive days, only to pull back this week. Some of the weight from the TSX could also be attributed to the release of higher-than-anticipated inflation figures. Statistics Canada said the annual inflation rate was 2.1%, mainly due to an increase in transportation costs. The overall rate was stronger than December’s rate of 1.5%. Mattina said the inflation rate could’ve been a factor to why consumer discretionary and consumer staples stocks were down. “These stocks depend on robust gains in real household income, and higher inflation tends to erode household income, so we may be seeing some reaction to that,” he said. A batch of corporate earnings also played their part in bringing down the TSX. Magna International (TSX:MG) tumbled 4.68%, or $2.77, to $56.43 after the auto parts maker reported lower-than-expected quarterly profit amid higher costs. Husky Energy (TSX:HSE) fell 5.49% or 90¢ to $15.50 as the oil producer reported its latest results. Canada’s biggest financial institution, Royal Bank (TSX:RY) fell 1.68%, or $1.65, to $96.61 even though the company beat market forecasts. Meanwhile, Wall Street finished in the positive after being negative throughout most of the session. The Dow Jones industrial average was ahead 11.44 points at 20,821.76 and the S&P 500 was up 3.53 points at 2,367.34. The tech-heavy Nasdaq composite rose 9.8 points at 5,845.31. In currencies, the Canadian dollar was slightly higher, up 0.03 of a U.S. cent at US76.28¢. Commodities were mostly positive as April gold jumped US$6.90 at US$1,258.30 an ounce, April natural gas was up US4¢ at US$2.79 per mmBTU, and May copper gained US4¢ to US$2.70 a pound. The April crude contract dipped US46¢ at US$53.99 per barrel.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index plunged 247.73 points or 1.57% to 15,533.47, with energy, consumer staples and consumer discretionary stocks bearing the brunt of the slump.

Researchers Develop New Wireless Emulator for 5G Systems

first_imgIn the existing emulation paradigm, the transmitter and receiver devices under test (TX and RX DUTs) are connected using cables to a channel emulator as shown in Figure 1. The RF signal vector from the TX DUT (one signal from each antenna element) is cabled through to the emulator. The wireless channel to be emulated is generally described via multipath fading profile which can be configured to reproduce measured traces or standard profiles such as in the 3GPP models. The output from the emulator is the signal vector, which is then cabled through to the RX DUT using one cable for each antenna element.Basically, the job of a channel emulator is to transform the input signal vector into the output signal vector. Due to the benefits offered, channel emulators have been widely used for Wi-Fi, 3G, and 4G LTE development, and are indeed a staple on any wireless research lab bench. However, there are no commercial emulators available that are suitable for upcoming 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) systems.These upcoming 5G mmWave systems will differ from existing 4G systems in two main ways: a.) The number of antenna elements are increased by an order of magnitude due to the use of mmWave phased arrays.b.) The bandwidths that these systems operate over is also increased by at least an order of magnitude.These differences make the existing emulation paradigm unsuitable for 5G mmWave systems for a variety of reasons. First, phased-array antenna elements cannot be connected to cables. The large number of antenna elements makes the hardware cost of building the emulator prohibitively expensive. Third, the computational complexity is increased by multiple orders of magnitude due to the large number of antenna elements and large bandwidth. These are the reasons that no commercial 5G mmWave emulators exist today. In order to support hundreds of antenna elements and several gigahertz of real-time bandwidth, current designs would need to resort to prohibitively expensive frequency stitching.The NYU emulator solves these challenges by defining a fundamentally new emulation paradigm for 5G mmWave systems. In this paradigm, the emulator not only emulates the wireless channel, but also the multi-antenna beamformers on both the TX and RX DUTs as contrasted in Fig. 2(a) and 2(b). The TX and RX DUTs share their instantaneous beamforming vectors with the emulator, so that the beamforming operations can be emulated. The TX DUT sends the emulator the pre-beamformed signal as opposed to the post-beamformed signal vector. Symmetrically, the emulator sends the RX DUT the post-beamformed signal as opposed to the output pre-beamformed signal vector. The emulator is flexible, and can support the signals in baseband, IF, or in RF, depending on the DUT configuration. By combining the emulation of the multi-antenna beamformers on the DUTs with the emulation of the wireless channel (the key patented technology), the computational complexity and hardware cost of the emulator are greatly reduced. Another key benefit in this new emulation paradigm is that researchers can experiment over different theoretical phased-array designs, further accelerating the research and development in protocols at all layers of the protocol stack.The NYU team has already demonstrated this emulator with 64-element DUTs and more than 2 GHz bandwidth at two major trade-shows: the Brooklyn 5G Summit, and at a workshop at NI Week in Austin. The implementation of this emulator was supported by a very generous hardware donation from NI to NYU. A team of researchers from CATT and NYU Wireless have built the world’s first wireless emulator for 5G systems that features massive bandwidth and hundreds of antenna elements. In this unique patented design, the solution emulates not only the wireless channel, but also the beamformers (or phased-arrays) on both the transmitter and receiver devices under test (DUTs). This joint emulation of the beamformer and the wireless channel is the key enabling technology that allows for faster development cycles, while significantly lowering the hardware cost and complexity of the emulator. The project was led by post-doctoral fellow Dr. Aditya Dhananjay, and was supervised by faculty members Dr. Sundeep Rangan and Dr. Dennis Shasha. The project was enabled by a generous hardware donation of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components from National Instruments. The NYU researchers are also making the emulator software available to academic researchers for free, along with reference TX and RX DUT software designs.As the 5G standardization process gathers steam, one of the critical challenges lies with the design and testing of the new generation of wireless systems. A key component of this testing process is channel emulation, wherein a channel emulator is used to simulate a configurable wireless channel between the transmitter and receiver devices under test. An emulator can be configured to reproduce a variety of wireless scenarios such as urban microcell, rural macrocell, mobility patterns, different weather conditions, and so on. Channel emulation offers reproducibility and enables the validation and testing of designs under worst-case scenarios, and is therefore an essential step before the time-consuming and expensive over-the-air (OTA) and field testing.last_img read more

Alec Baldwin’s Trump spoofs gun control and Hope Hicks resignation on “SNL”

first_imgNBC/Will HeathFollowing a new Twitter feud between President Donald Trump and Alec Baldwin over the latter’s impersonation of the President, Baldwin reprised his Trump impersonation on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live.In the show’s opening sketch, Baldwin’s Trump took on the President’s recent listening session on gun control, telling the audience, “Tonight I am here to bring you a message of healing and a show of unity.” Looking at his notes, he added, “I hear you and I care. Rent LEGO Ninjago Movie.“Sorry, Eric scribbled some notes on there, too,” added Baldwin, referring to the President’s son.The faux Trump also floated the idea of taking guns away from all Americans — “even whites.”He followed by addressing the latest resignations in the Trump administration. Referring to his soon-to-be former Communications Director Hope Hicks, Baldwin said, “She’s like a daughter to me. So smart, so hot. You know, I hate seeing her go but I love watching her walk away.”On tariffs, Baldwin’s Trump declared, “I said I was going to run this country like a business. That business is a Waffle House at 2 a.m. Crazies everywhere, staff walking out in the middle of their shift, managers taking money out of the cash register to pay off the Russian mob.”During the Weekend Update segment, SNL’s Cecily Strong — as Hicks — compared her time at the White House to summer camp, explaining, “You make all these new friends, you barely get any sleep and then everybody leaves after eight weeks.” She bid farewell to her former colleagues by saying, “I’ll see you guys at the reunion in 10 years. Seven with good behavior.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Utah basketball: Lorenzo Bonam’s aggressiveness pays off in Ute win at Colorado

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY – Earlier this season, Lorenzo Bonam showed an uncanny knack for getting to the basket when he scored 20 points in a win over Texas Tech after getting 14 against San Diego State. But the Utah junior college transfer stopped being so aggressive and has put up inconsistent numbers ever since.Then prior to Friday night’s game against Colorado, Ute coach Larry Krystkowiak encouraged Bonam in his pregame talk to go back to his old ways and attack the basket.“In the locker room in front of the whole team I let him know in order to take the next step and for our team to be good, you’ve got to have that reckless abandon that you had,” Krystkowiak said. “And tonight he had some opportunities to finish.”Bonam took heed from his coach’s words and not only led the Utes in scoring with 17 points, but also scored the game-winning basket with 1.1 seconds left in a come-from-behind 56-54 victory.A Michigan native, Bonam joined the Utes this year after playing at Gillette College (Wyoming) last year where he averaged 16.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. He moved into a starting role in the first game, came off the bench for awhile when Kenneth Ogbe was healthy before regaining his starting status.“He’s really coachable and it’s been a little confusing for him,” Krystkowiak said. “He went through a period where he seemed a little confused and wasn’t attacking. He’s best when he’s attacking and doing his thing. He made some impact and was big against Texas Tech, but . . . the next couple of weeks he lost his aggressiveness.”The aggressiveness was back Friday night as Bonam went to the basket several times before his game-winner, which was a left-hander at the basket over Colorado’s 6-foot-10 Josh Scott. When asked how it felt to be called on for the final play he said, “It felt good to be the one to do it at a D-I level.”For the season, Bonam is averaging 10.4 points on 51.7 percent shooting and 52 percent (12 of 23) from 3-point range. He’s also been impressive on the defensive end, ranking second on the team in blocked shots (13) and tied for the lead in steals with 19. He came up with a key steal with 25 seconds left when he intercepted a pass on the baseline, which set up his game-winning shot.“That was just a defensive emphasis,” he said. “When somebody’s dropping baseline, you drop to the level of the ball and I just happened to be the guy dropping and he threw it right to my hands.”While Krystkowiak tried to downplay the importance of Friday’s victory, saying “I think we all know the gravity of the situation,” he still knew how imperative it really was.“One game is not going to kill you, but it’s a whole different thing when you’re 0-3 versus 1-2,” he said.“We didn’t want to start off 0-3 in conference,” added Kyle Kuzma, who scored 12 points Friday. “This was a must-win. To be honest, every Pac-12 game is a must-win.”With the Pac-12 being as well-balanced as ever with every team but one (Washington) having at least one loss going into Saturday night’s games, the Utes are right in the thick of the regular-season title race.The 12-4 Utes are back home for a pair of games, Thursday against Oregon and Sunday against Oregon State at the Huntsman Center.UTE NOTES: Jakob Poeltl had his poorest offensive outing of the season with just six points on 2-of-8 shooting, although he had 11 rebounds. Krystkowiak said he’s giving Poeltl the weekend off. “He’s a little worn down and he’s going to take a couple days off and get a little fresher,” he said . . . Krystkowiak also said 7-foot freshman center Jayce Johnson is in “a holding pattern” after joining the team out of high school a couple of weeks ago. “I’d really like to have him in his fourth year” . . . The Utes go back on the road next week for games at Washington and Washington State.last_img read more

Atlanta Hawks honored at Georgia capital

first_imgThe biggest story of the 2014-15 season has not been the Golden State Warriors nor the return of LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Atlanta Hawks have been lighting up the NBA.With no true superstar on the roster, the traditionally-mediocre Hawks have thrown the gears into overdrive, flying down the left lane towards the playoffs and owners of the best record in the NBA.For their troubles, the Hawks were paid tribute at the Georgia capital in Atlanta, just down the street from the Phillips Arena where the Hawks have been punishing teams thoroughly and turned the usually half-empty arena into a jam-packed party.Team vice president and Hall of Fame legend Dominique Wilkins and team owner Steven Koonin were on hand as the Hawks were recognized for their sportsmanship, citizenship and significant economic impact to the City of Atlanta. The 2015 Eastern Conference All-Star and Hawks Head Coach Mike Budenholzer, current players Kyle Korver and Elton Brand and Hawks alumni were on-site to meet with civic officials from throughout the state of Georgia.Wilkins, nicknamed the “Human Highlight Film” during his spectacular career at the University of Georgia and the Hawks, was blown away by the recognition because it’s the first time during his 30-year career with the team that the Hawks had ever been bestowed such an honor.Koonin said the Hawks’ streak of success has captured the imagination of fans beyond metro Atlanta.“The recognition of the accomplishments should really go to our fans — from LaGrange to Macon to Ellijay, the Atlanta Hawks have become Georgia’s team,” he told lawmakers during the tribute.Koonin also mentioned that, since the winning streak began, the team has experienced the fastest growing attendance in the NBA and television ratings soared an astounding 70 percent over the past year.The Hawks are owners of the longest winning streak this season at 19 games, which is also the a franchise record and fourth-best winning streak in the history of the league. Behind the All-Star caliber play of point guard Jeff Teague, power forward Paul Milsap, sniper shooting guard Kyle Korver and center Al Horford, the Hawks have soared to the top of the Eastern Conference with a 40-9 record while demolishing the league’s most glamorous teams and traditional powers alike.last_img read more

Smokies lose to Vernon in overtime

first_imgAdam Marcoux turned aside 23 of the 26 shots he faced in his 17th loss of the season while Bradley Cooper stopped 22 of the 24 shots for his 4th victory of the season. FINAL SCORE: 3-2 Vipers (OT)SHOTS ON GOAL: 26-24 VipersSMOKE EATERS PP: 0/2SMOKE EATERS PK: 1/13 STARS:1) Mitch Andres (1-0-1)2) Jimmy Darby (1-0-1)3) Teddy Wooding (1-0-1)Fortis Energy Player of the Game: Max Kryski (0-1-1)ATTENDANCE: 1,211The Smoke Eaters (12-17-5-2) open a weekend home-and-home set with the Penticton Vees (20-10-1-2) beginning at the South Okanagan Events Centre on Friday night. Puck drop is slated for 7:00 PM with the pre-game show getting underway at 6:50 PM on mixlr.com/trail-smoke-eaters as well as HockeyTV.com with the Voice of the Smoke Eaters, Trevor Miller. The Trail Smoke Eaters battled from a two-goal deficit to force overtime but fell by a 3-2 score to the Vernon Vipers on Wednesday night at the Trail Memorial Centre. Jimmy Darby collected his first career BC Hockey League goal in the 2nd period while Chase Stevenson scored in the 3rd period to get the game even and force overtime but Mitch Andres ended the game with his first goal of the season and handing the Smoke Eaters a 3-2 loss in extra time. Vernon showed no sign of bus legs after a long day of travel and took a 1-0 lead just 1:40 into the opening period of play. Matt Kowalski worked down the right side and chipped a pass to the edge of the right face-off circle for Elan Bar-Lev-Wise as the Viper forward let a wrist shot go underneath of the blocker side of Smoke Eaters netminder Adam Marcoux to give the visitors a 1-0 lead. The Viper doubled their lead at the 7:49 mark of the 1st period courtesy of a sharp angled shot from Teddy Wooding. Landon Fuller played the puck to center as Wooding chased onto it inside the Trail end of the ice and beat Marcoux with a shot over his shoulders from the right corner for a 2-0 advantage. The Smoke Eaters and Vipers play much of the 2nd period evenly, with chances being sparingly presented between the two teams that held their defensive zone very well but Trail was able to crack their way onto the scoresheet late in the period and cut the Vernon lead to one-goal heading into the 3rd period. Max Kryski kept the puck inside the Vernon zone as he made a nice play to get below the goal line and centered a pass through the slot to the point for Jimmy Darby, who slapped home his first career BCHL goal at then 18:37 mark to cut the deficit to 2-1 heading into the final regulation period of play.Trail battled their way back to tie the game at the 7:45 mark of the 3rd period with Chase Stevenson taking a shot from the right face-off circle that was blocked but got the puck back again and beat Cooper on the blocker side for his 13th goal of the season and tied the game at 2-2, eventually sending the game into overtime.The Vipers had the most of the possession in the overtime period and off of a won face-off, Mitch Andres made his way to the high slot and snapped a wrist shot over the glove side of Marcoux to conclude the hockey game and give the Vipers a 3-2 win. last_img read more

Moura adds new dimension to Spurs and could be key to Poch’s trophy hunt

first_imgIT’S already clear from three games how much Lucas Moura will bring to Tottenham.He offers a new dimension to their attack, giving them the pace on the counter they have never had under Mauricio Pochettino.5 Lucas Moura scored twice in the 3-0 win at Manchester UnitedCredit: Getty Images – Getty5 Lucas Moura is in the form of his life and will be the man to stop for WatfordCredit: Getty Images – GettyThe Brazilian made Manchester United’s defence appear all at sea on Monday and he also showed how clinical he is in front of goal.Moura, Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen all have unique qualities, which when combined makes Tottenham such a formidable quartet.They all bring something different to the party, get the best out of and improve each other.Dele has a great connection with Kane, always reacting to the England skipper’s movement.5 Against Fulham, Kane stretched the game, allowing Alli and Moura to operate in space5 Moura was able to get in behind the Manchester United defenceIf Kane drops deep, he will move into the space left in behind.But if the striker stretches the game (see average positions v Fulham), Dele will drift into the holes between midfield and defence.Against United, Kane often came short to great effect, highlighted by Moura’s second goal, while Dele managed to get on the same line as him (see average positions v United) looking to get in behind. And this becomes a nightmare for defenders.If you move out of the line to go with Kane, Dele and Moura will exploit the room behind.But if you don’t, Kane will turn and look to pass or shoot, as your defensive midfielder will be occupied by Eriksen.It’s match week 4 of the Premier League as Manchester United face Burnley and Liverpool go to LeicesterMost read in footballRETRACING STEPSJack Charlton’s granddaughter Emma Wilkinson ‘would love’ to visit IrelandROY RAGEFurious Roy Keane launched foul-mouthed rant at Pique over Fabregas friendshipPicturedTOP FORMBrazil icon Ronaldo soaks up sun with partner Celina Locks on yacht in FormenteraPicturedON THE PAOLPaolo Maldini shows off shredded physique at 52 while on holiday with wifeExclusiveLOCK CLOWNPaul Scholes flouts local lockdown rules by throwing huge 7-hour birthday bashLive BlogUNITED LATESTMan Utd transfer news LIVE: All the gossip and updates from Old TraffordLive Bloggunners newsArsenal transfer news LIVE – Latest updates from the EmiratesPicturedMADD FOR ITPrem aces Dele, Maddison & Grealish enjoy hard-earned break in sun-soaked IbizaLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea transfer news LIVE: Havertz deal LATEST, Willian move updatesMISS-RON IMPOSSIBLERonaldo LOSES Golden Boot race after axe from Juve squad for final gameThe four of them don’t have to worry about creating width as Spurs get this from their full-backs, giving the quartet freedom to cause havoc in the centre.It was easy to mock Spurs for not making a single summer signing.But they are one of the few teams in the league who will actually improve without any new additions.Why?Because of the age of their squad, they are still not at their peak and are improving all the time.Goals of the Month: Watch the best goals from August in the Premier League5 Mauricio Pochettino will hope Lucas Moura can help Spurs win silverware this seasonCredit: ReutersGoing so close in the 2016 title chase and  losing last year’s FA Cup semi-final  will have been devastating experiences for a young squad — but they will stand them in great stead going forward.They have grown up together, going through the highs and lows, maturing together without making too many changes.And with Moura making them more dangerous than ever before, Spurs have everything to mount a serious challenge for silverware this year.Manchester United 0-3 Tottenham: Lucas Moura bags a brace as trouble continues for Jose Mourinho’s Red Devilslast_img read more
