Plasma Antennas, the inventors of plasma silicon technology, have joined the Small Cell Forum (SCF), the global industry body driving the wide-scale adoption of small cells and heterogeneous networks.The new generation of 5G cellular networks will provide massive, instantly steerable bandwidth in mmWave frequencies, and will rely on a much denser network topology, where small cells will play a major part. But the drive to making 5G a commercial reality is being held back by today’s phased array antennas. Once considered state of the art, phased array technology does not provide the required range and has not developed to the point that it makes a commercial mmWave 5G service viable. These shortcomings are exacerbated when miniaturising base stations into small cells.Plasma Antennas has solved the 5G antenna challenge, and unlocked the 5G small cell potential at the same time. Proven for the UK defence industry, their patented plasma beam-forming technology is a market-defining innovation for mmWave applications; transforming performance, costs and simplicity. It has very low loss, low power consumption, no moving parts, no power limits, it can switch direction in just a few hundred nanoseconds and costs a fraction of phased array technology.Small Cell Forum supports, promotes and helps drive the development and adoption of small cell technologies to improve the coverage, capacity and services delivered by mobile networks.By promoting their use in operator networks, the ever-increasing consumer requirement for using mobile devices wherever we are, with ubiquitous coverage and an uninterrupted service, can become a reality. In 5G, URLLC (Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications) over mmWave links present particular challenges. Innovation will be required to meet the cost and performance goals that will make 5G attractive, usable and affordable. Click here to learn more about this technology.

With this player not being announced yet it is expected that more players are to follow. Turinabol was not something that would likely be tested positive in a modern day PED test. Turinabol is beginning to show up widely around the league though. Toronto Blue Jays’ Chris Colabello and the Philadelphia Phillies’ Daniel Stumpf were suspended and had Turinabol in their systems. With the number of players getting busted for PEDs there is two things to consider. With the rising number of suspensions in 2016, thoughts are now that we either have better technology to test for PEDs or more athletes are beginning to take supplements. Here is a list of players that have been suspended so far in the 2016 season-Jenrry Mejía (Now has a lifetime ban)-Abraham Almonte (80 games)-Daniel Stumpf (80 games)-Chris Colabello (80 games)-Dee Gordon (80 games)-Josh Ravin (80 games)With the list already having six names and the announcement of more to come, how long can this list possibly get this season?As for the next group of players to be suspended, give me your thoughts as to who you think it might be on Twitter @PaytonVince .

SALT LAKE CITY — The last time Utah and UCLA played, just 18 days ago, the two teams were just a game apart in the Pac-12 standings with the Utes having a chance to move into a tie with the Bruins with a victory that Sunday in Los Angeles.The Utes were beaten quite handily 73-57 that day and since then, the two teams have been headed in different directions.As the two teams get ready for an 8:30 p.m. tipoff Thursday night at the Huntsman Center, the Bruins are three games up on the Utes at 8-5, just a game out of first place, while the Utes are 5-8 and trying not to fall further in the standings. UCLA, under first-year coach Mick Cronin, after a slow start in Pac-12 play, has come on strong, winning five of its last six, including a road win at No. 23 Arizona and a home win against No. 18 Colorado.In the win over Utah at Pauley Pavilion, freshman guard Tyger Campbell had his best game of the year, scoring 22 points and handing out eight assists. The Bruins have a balanced lineup with just one player, junior forward Chris Smith, averaging in double figures at 13.3 ppg. Other starters include Jalen Hill (9.5 ppg), Jaime Jaquez (9.5 ppg) Cody Riley (8.3 ppg) and Campbell (7.8 ppg), the only player who has started every game. Senior guard Prince Ali is the top player off the bench, averaging 7.1 ppg.“They play really hard, they have all the components,” said Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak. “They have an elite point guard in Tyger, who’s really grown as the year’s gone along and made them better, Smith is a load, a hybrid wing power forward and a bunch of athletes I would say are the top rebounding team in the Pac-12. We’re going to have to dial in and defend in the post.”The Utes are 14-11 overall and 10-1 at home this season and should be at full strength with Both Gach expected in the starting lineup for the second straight game.The Utes will take on USC Sunday at 4 p.m.***Utah (14-11, 5-8 Pac-12) vs. UCLA (15-11, 8-5)Huntsman CenterThursday, 8:30 p.m. MTTV: FS1Radio: ESPN AM-700
The President of the Liberian Business Association (LIBA), Dee-Maxwell Saah Kemayah has said that for Liberians to take charge of their country’s economy it is crucial that and the 25 percent budget expenditure allocated to Liberian-owned businesses by the government should be increased to 100 per cent.He argued that Liberians are building confidence in the banking sector and therefore it is necessary for the government to fully support Liberian businesses to let them take charge of the economy.Mr. Kemayah made the statement over the weekend at a one-day policy dialogue on validation consultation, organized by the Governance Commission on Scoping Study of Liberian Entrepreneurs’ Participation in the Liberian Economy, held at a local resort in Monrovia.“We still can do better and therefore it will be helpful for the government to increase the 25 per cent to 100 per cent,” he said.He therefore called on the Public Procurement and Concessions Commission (PPCC) to make public the list of Liberian businesses that have benefited from the implementation of the Small Businesses Act since its inception two years ago.Commenting on the unwillingness of Liberian businesses to take advantage of training opportunities, Kemayah called on the commission to allow LIBA to take the lead in arranging and conducting future training for its members.“When you allow us to take the lead, our members will have more confidence in the process,” he emphasized.For his part, executive director of the PPCC, James Dorbor Jallah, disclosed that over US$90 million has been committed to Liberian businesses by 82 Government of Liberia-funded agencies.The amount is part of the agencies’ procurement allotment in the 2015/16 fiscal budget.He added that some of the agencies have committed up to 100 percent of their procurement allotment, implying that their procurement budget is committed to tender competition among only Liberian companies.“The average national percentage is about 30 percent; so what that means is that nationally, though the law requires a minimum of 25 percent, we are doing five percent more than it is required,” Jallah pointed out.The PPCC Executive Director, however, lamented on the inability of Liberian businesses to deliver quality services on contracts awarded them.He said in spite of the provision by the Small Businesses Act, which requires that 25 percent of all government procurements be committed to Liberian businesses, the commission will not relax its rules to awarding contracts to institutions that lack the technical capacity to deliver on contracts.Jallah also frowned on Liberian companies for their unwillingness to take advantage of training opportunities offered them by the commission.“We remain open to the training of Liberian businesses that are in need of capacity building in procurement and related PPCC exercises,” he added.He pledged PPCC’s support to Liberian businesses to ensure that they have a place in the economy through the enforcement of the Small Businesses Empowerment Law, without compromise.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
