Jim Harbaugh Compared Today’s Camp At New Jersey Power Paramus Catholic To The Super Bowl

first_imgjim harbaugh paramus catholicTwitter/@Mark__SnyderParamus Catholic has been very kind to the Michigan football program. The New Jersey football power produced Michigan star Jabrill Peppers, as well as Rashan Gary, the No. 1 player in the class of 2016 and top Michigan signee. Today, Harbaugh’s never-ending satellite camp tour makes a high-profile stop at the school, and he did not hesitate to make a ridiculous comparison.Harbaugh moving with the mic, said he feels like he did going into the Super Bowl pic.twitter.com/Gv4Y0s5Yra— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) June 8, 2016Harbaugh coached in Super Bowl XLVII, where his San Francisco 49ers lost to his brother’s Baltimore Ravens, so technically ‘he would know.’ Never stop selling, Harbaugh.As for #HarbaughJerseyWatch, after rocking an Archie Manning jersey in Mississippi this morning, Harbaugh went with Derek Jeter this evening. Pretty appropriate for the greater New York City area.As he promised, Harbaugh with Jeter jersey pic.twitter.com/1eqhImhYww— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) June 8, 2016We’re not sure about the Super Bowl comparison, but if Harbaugh makes inroads with another Peppers or Gary, it will have been a day well spent for Michigan football.MORE FROM COLLEGE SPUN:Predicting The Next 5 CFP Fields5 Reasons Jim Harbaugh Is Great For College FootballCollege Football’s 8 “Blue Bloods”last_img read more

BlackBerry QNX selfdriving car hits the road in the first Canadian street

first_imgOTTAWA – A BlackBerry QNX-equipped self-driving car hit the road in suburban Ottawa Thursday in what was billed as the first on-street test of an autonomous vehicle in Canada.The grey Lincoln MKZ pulled away with Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, councillor Marianne Wilkinson and John Wall, general manager of BlackBerry QNX, aboard.BlackBerry QNX opened an autonomous vehicle innovation centre in Ottawa late last year.“Today is the first public fruits of what we’ve been doing,” Wall said.The street was closed for the public demonstration, which attracted scores of people, but the car is expected to be operating on city streets in the test area amidst real traffic and pedestrians.To aid in the demonstration, the test loop around the suburban technology park has been upgraded with traffic lights equipped with transmitters that communicate with the car as well as repainted street lines and new LED street lights.BlackBerry QNX is developing the software foundation for autonomous vehicles, while Wall said others are working on what he called “the brain.”“In a lot of cases, the OEMs want to own that, so the Fords of this world, the Mercedes of this world, that’s their secret sauce, they’re going to build the brain,” he said.“We’re going to provide all the infrastructure, the security, the safety, the redundancy, the communication, how the signals come in.”Wall said fully autonomous cars without a steering wheel are still a long way off, but he added that cars are already incorporating some of the technology such as sensors that will keep your car in its lane, hit the brake if they think you are going to hit something or detect another car in your blind spot.Automotive and technology companies around the world have been racing to develop self-driving systems.A demonstration test zone has been announced for Stratford, Ont., as part of the Ontario government’s plan to create an Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Network, with the help of $80 million over five years.Canadian auto parts firm Magna International Inc. (TSX:MG) announced earlier this week that it would join BMW and Intel Corp. to develop a self-driving system for the global vehicle marketplace by 2021.Several companies including Uber and Waymo, which was spun out of Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc. last year, have been testing self-driving cars on city streets in the United States.Uber briefly suspended its self-driving fleet last month after a car collided with a self-driving Uber SUV.BlackBerry QNX has been a supplier of software platforms to the auto industry for 20 years including telematics, infotainment, acoustics, and instrument cluster systems.last_img read more

6 get lifer for Rs 25 cr bank fraud case

first_imgNew Delhi: In a rare judgement, a trial court in Mumbai has sentenced six people to life imprisonment, including an Assistant General Manager of Bank of India, for defrauding the public lender off Rs 2.5 crore, officials here said.One other accused in the case was sentenced to three years in prison, with fines for all seven ranging from Rs 50 lakh to Rs 3,000. The CBI had alleged that Manoharlal Ahuja and his son Amit, both partners in Swift Service Linings had borrowed Rs 2.5 crore from the bank in a conspiracy with Bhagwanji Dayaram Joshi, then AGM of Bank of India. All three have been ordered to serve life sentences for their crimes. Manoharlal and Amit along with other members of their company forged documents and falsified information pertaining to approximately Rs 2.4 crore worth of collateral properties. Officials said that the accused fraudulently got the loans sanctioned for their company with help from officials of the Bank of India branch in Mandvi, Mumbai. Eventually, the bank declared Swift Service Lining’s account with them as NPA in February 2004, following which the probe agency took over the case. The CBI filed its chargesheet in the case, naming eight accused persons in 2005 with one of them namely G K Sharma having passed away during the trial.last_img read more
