Best phones under 10,000 – Advertisement – The Realme Narzo 10A can be seen as a replacement for the Realme C3 because these two smartphones share a lot of hardware, with the exception of a fresh design, macro camera, and fingerprint sensor on the Narzo 10A. This phone sports a 6.5-inch display with HD+ resolution and is powered by the MediaTek Helio G70 SoC. There are two variants of the Narzo 10A, one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage priced at Rs. 8,999, and the other with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which costs Rs. 9,999.The Narzo 10A packs in a 5,000mAh battery and offers good battery life. It has a triple camera setup at the back consisting of a 12-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. It has a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The Narzo 10A has a newer design compared to the Realme C3. Moto E7 Plus8Rs. 9,499 Motorola has packed in a 5,000mAh battery that keeps the smartphone going for a really long time before needing to be charged. There is no USB Type-C port here and the Moto E7 Plus has a Micro-USB port. The bundled charger is 10W only and takes over two hours to charge the device completely. You only get a dual camera setup on the Moto E7 Plus. The primary one has a 48-megapixel sensor, and there is a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The cameras are capable of capturing good photos in daylight. Using Night mode the Moto E7 Plus also takes some decent low-light shots.The Moto E7 Plus offers a clean near-stock Android UI which is not very common at this price level. If you like a simple, easy-to-use interface then the Moto E7 Plus has that going for it. At a price of Rs. 9,499 the Moto E7 Plus is definitely easy to recommend, but keep an eye out for the more powerful Moto G9, which goes on sale for Rs. 9,999 quite often. Redmi 97Rs. 8,999 The Redmi 9 is the successor to the Redmi 8, which has been on our recommendation list for quite some time now. Xiaomi has made a few tweaks to the Redmi 9 starting with a switch back to a Micro-USB port, which is a little surprising since the Redmi 8 had a USB Type-C port. The Redmi 9 sports a 6.53-inch HD+ display with a dewdrop notch at the top.Xiaomi has picked the MediaTek Helio G35 processor to power the Redmi 9, and has paired it with 4GB of RAM. The Redmi 9 packs in a 5,000mAh battery but only comes with a 10W charger in the box. While charging is a little slow, battery life is quite good and you should be able to go beyond a day with regular use. The Redmi 9 runs Android 10 with MIUI 12 on top. There is a fair amount of bloatware on the smartphone and we did encounter spammy notifications while using it.The Redmi 9 has a dual camera setup at the back consisting of a 13-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. It has a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies. The Redmi 9 is capable of handling day-to-day tasks, but heavy games may not run very smoothly.

It has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner that is quick to unlock the device.- Advertisement – The sub-Rs. 10,000 smartphone segment has some new additions thanks to multiple launches over the past few months. This is a sensitive and strategic price point but the nationwide lockdown and the increase in GST earlier this year have made it difficult for manufacturers to hit this target. While Xiaomi and Realme are still fighting it out in this segment, Motorola has also jumped into the ring now. The result is more choice for buyers who get multiple options to choose from. Here are some of the best smartphones that are priced under Rs. 10,000 that you can buy right now in India. Is Realme TV the best TV under Rs. 15,000 in India?

NZ Herald 18 June 2020Family First Comment: “All such agencies should be explicitly prevented from taking the sort of stance that the (Drug) foundation has. The fact they are not prevented from this activity drags the main funder of the group – the Government – into play and stretches the idea of their neutrality. The fact that the Government raised the issue, initiated the vote and allegedly quite independently then have one of the agencies they heavily fund backing the change is asking a lot of us in terms of believing their transparency and credibility. And what makes it even more insidious is that the foundation have used their platform to raise money.”Yep.COMMENT: I view it as a very good sign that the Drug Foundation tried to slip the old medicinal line into their advertising.It’s the line that’s led to dozens of complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority.It’s the line that had Dr Kate Baddock of the Medical Association saying it’s rubbish, it’s completely misleading.It’s the line that had the academic Bill Hodge saying it’s misleading and deceptive.It is indeed.Why did they do it? Because they are scared, they are scared the polls haven’t gone the way they would have hoped, they are scared this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get things legally sorted the way they would like, and they are scared they are going to lose.The question is not really whether it’s misleading. I will be astonished if the authority doesn’t rule against them. The question is – is it too late?Wheels turn slowly at authorities who gather to review rules.By the time they meet, debate, decide and release their findings, it may well be too late. The deed might have had the desired affect – to suck in the vulnerable.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12340362

29 February 2016The dystopian action movie Mad Max: Fury Road already has more than one Southern African connection: it was filmed in Namibia; some of the post-production was done by BlackGinger, the Cape Town animation and visual effects studio; and it stars South African-born actress Charlize Theron.Now, Margaret Sixel, the South African-born film editor, has won the Oscar for Best Editing in a Feature Film for her work on it. Her win was one of six Oscars that it picked up.Oscar for Best Editing: Margaret Sixel – Mad Max: Fury Road pic.twitter.com/jJc9oYh05q— FilmmakerIQ.com (@FilmmakerIQ) February 29, 2016Filmed in the Namibian desert, the blockbusting Australian action film Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the most surprising critical and commercial successes in 2015.Starring Tom Hardy and Theron, and directed by Australian George Miller, the film has won numerous awards over the past year, including Bafta and Critics’ Choice awards, culminating in several wins at the 88th Academy Awards, known as the Oscars, held in Los Angeles on Sunday, 28 February 2016.Margaret Sixel wins Best Editing for Mad Max, the first action film she’d ever edited. #Oscars2016 pic.twitter.com/M7rb8VDgWb— GamesRadar+ (@GamesRadar) February 29, 2016Sixel’s frenetic editing was described by the Los Angeles Times as “Herculean”, considering the amount of footage shot by Miller to bring his masterpiece to life. Miller, who is also Sixel’s husband, used up to 20 cameras to shoot more than 480 hours of film. Sixel spent over 6 000 hours crafting 2 700 individual cuts, helping to create what the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) praised as a two-hour “cerebral post-apocalyptic car chase”.Asked about her editing style in an interview in the run-up to the Oscars, Sixel justified the editing process as part of storytelling philosophy, saying: “I don’t like meaningless cutting. It must enhance the story and the characters.”.@MadMaxMovie director George Miller with wife Margaret Sixel walking the #Oscars red carpet. #9Today pic.twitter.com/Ae7odLSXU1— The Today Show (@TheTodayShow) February 28, 2016According to a variety of filmmaking experts, the soul of the film came down to Sixel’s strong working relationship with Miller to find the heart of the film and her intuitive eye in creating thrilling tension without sacrificing the film’s narrative. Sixel has previously worked with Miller on his films Babe: A Pig in the City and the animated hit Happy Feet. Mad Max: Fury Road was her first action film.Asked by the Huffington Post why he choose a woman to tackle the intricacies of editing a large scale action movie, Miller answered that if he had used a male editor the film would “look like every other action movie”.The film was nominated for 10 Oscars, winning six, including Best Production Design, Costume Design and Sound Editing. The wins make Mad Max: Fury Road the most successful Australian production since The Piano in 1993. It also gives it the most wins at the Oscars for an Australian film since the Baz Luhrmann musical Moulin Rouge in 2001.On accepting the award, Sixel thanked her husband for his vision for the film, as well as his confidence in allowing her to experiment with the art of editing to give the film its unique feel. She added that the cast and crew involved in the most unlikely of Oscar winners had “incredible courage and guts to make this film”.Margaret Sixel wins Best Film Editing for “Mad Max: Fury Road” https://t.co/wvvnWW6pFt pic.twitter.com/jqbueVpJ0L— Los Angeles Times (@latimes) February 29, 2016Source: News24
By Auyanna McBride, AFCPE-FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellowship InternWith the cost of groceries on the rise, many families are turning to couponing to save money on groceries. There are several resources that offer great coupons. Some of these include Sunday newspapers, www.coupons.com and the local store/commissary. To save even more money, military families should try to shop at stores that double their coupons and only get items that the family uses. A great way to start a savings program is to take the money saved on coupons and use it to open a savings account. Most stores print the savings from coupons at the bottom of the receipt so their customers can see exactly how much they save using coupons and store specials. This is a great incentive to use coupons even more because the more money people save, the bigger their savings account will grow. For more information about savings strategies for military families, visit the Military Saves Web site at http://www.militarysaves.org/.This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network Blog on August 30, 2013.

The new rules of Indian Premier League which will be applied from next year have left Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan “a bit confused” and the Bollywood superstar said it would have been “fair for everyone” if all the players are put up for auction in November.”New IPL rules a bit confusing. Two new teams added (good). All players should go into pool to make it fair for everyone. Simple & straight,” Shah Rukh wrote on his twitter page.With the inclusion of two new teams in the IPL — Sahara Pune Warriors and Kochi team, the IPL Governing Council proposed a revised structure but it has not gone down too well with some of the franchise owners voicing their concerns publicly.The new rules state that the 10 teams will be divided into two groups and there would be 74 matches in the next three IPL seasons.The eight original franchises will be allowed to retain four players, including a foreigner. Besides the four players, the rest of the squad would be selected through open bidding.It has also been made mandatory for the players retained to be amongst the registered players for the 2010 season. The fee of the players retained would be decided after mutual agreement between the stakeholders.The salary cap of the franchisees has also been raised to USD 9 million. But if any franchisee retains all the four players, it will have USD 4.5 million per year to spend on other players.The new rules have limited the number of players to be 30 for a squad.advertisement

If you are selling to engineers or professors, you need to think more about seo because that’s where the volume is.
