0Shares0000Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini celebrates scoring the team’s second goal during their match against Crystal Palace in Manchester, north west England, on September 30, 2017 © AFP / PAUL ELLISMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Sep 30 – Jose Mourinho described Marouane Fellaini as a “strong character” for overcoming his early troubles at Manchester United to establish himself as a key player at Old Trafford.Fellaini struggled to make a positive impression early in his United career after arriving from Everton for £27.5 million (31.2m euros, $36.8m) in 2013, with one British newspaper placing him among the 10 worst buys of the Premier League season at the end of his first year. Yet United manager Mourinho has made clear he sees Fellaini’s contribution as vital to the club’s progress, saying last month he felt his team was “weaker” without the midfielder in it.The Belgium international missed Wednesday’s 4-1 Champions League win away to CSKA Moscow with an ankle problem, but returned to score twice as United beat Crystal Palace 4-0 at Old Trafford in the Premier League.“I think only a strong character could resist the difficulties here,” said Mourinho.“He had some difficult times when people didn’t recognise his qualities, when other managers didn’t like so much the qualities he has.“He is a fighter, a guy with lots of pride and I am really pleased I helped him reach this level and change the perception the fans have now.”Mourinho suggested Fellaini was benefiting from his management more than he had done under his predecessors at Old Trafford.“All managers are different. Sometimes we like players that others don’t like,” said Mourinho.“Some players perform better with some of us than with others –- and I have examples of players that didn’t perform well for me and then performed well for other managers.– ‘We took blows to the chin’ –“I think Marouane has important qualities and I try to use them depending on the situation and what the team needs.Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku (L) vies with Crystal Palace’s Bakary Sako during their match in Manchester, north west England, on September 30, 2017 © AFP / Paul ELLIS“He plays with me as a defensive midfielder, as a second striker, as one of two midfielders. He is a great player. A great character.”United are in a strong position in the Premier League going into the international break, with four wins out of four at home, but Mourinho is not getting carried away.“It is just four matches at home,” said Mourinho.“I know that in the same four matches at home last season we got eight points, not 12. We have four more points at home than last season.“We are playing well. I don’t say that we played well for 90 minutes because sometimes we have periods where we lose a bit our consistency, our intensity. But it is difficult to do that for 90 minutes.”Palace remain bottom of the Premier League, with no goals and no points after seven matches, with this defeat coming seven days after they were beaten 5-0 at Manchester City.Manager Roy Hodgson admitted he faces a tough fight to avoid relegation, but believes it can be done.“We have to accept we are a boxer fighting in a weight class we are not able to handle at this minute and we took blows to the chin and got knocked down,” said the former England manager.“But the lessons we are learning could stand us in very good stead. We are not going to have 38 games against Manchester City and Manchester United.“If we can stop the players doubting themselves too much, who knows, we may look back on this terrible spell and say it helped us build the character to stay in the league.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
$460 The Oppo Reno 5G, which might be the last Oppo flagship without an under screen camera. Ian Knighton/CNET How do you make a phone that’s got close to a 100% screen-to-body ratio but still crams in a selfie camera? Samsung’s Galaxy S10 range has an Infinity-O notch, Asus’ ZenFone 6 has a rear camera that protrudes and rotates to become a front camera, and the OnePlus 7 simply has a popup shooter. Oppo thinks it has a better solution: a camera inside the display.The Chinese company unveiled its in-screen camera, what it’s calling USC (under screen camera), at MWC Shanghai on Wednesday. Oppo says under-screen cameras are enabled by a camera with a wider-than-average aperture and greater pixel size, as well as algorithms that reduce haze and improve both HDR and white balance.But there are some caveats. Oppo didn’t announce an actual phone in which an under screen camera would reside, and in a press release cautioned that its under screen camera would produce image quality “approaching that of mainstream smartphones.” OnePlus 7 Share your voice CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

It’s not 100% screen, but with a screen-to-body ratio of 93.1% is pretty close.

Kolkata: The Mamata Banerjee government will now hold Bengal Global Business Summit (BGBS) once every two years. This was announced by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at the state Assembly on Wednesday.”There are various processes involved after we receive an investment proposal. We need to prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR), sign MoUs and complete certain other formalities. So we have decided to give some more time before holding such business meets. This will help us make more investments fruitful in the real sense of the term, before we hold the next edition of BGBS,” Banerjee said, while deliberating upon the Governor’s speech that was delivered in the last session in February. The session could not be held after that with the announcement of the elections in March. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataBanerjee said 50 percent of the investments received in the five editions of BGBS held since 2015 are already under implementation. It may be mentioned that most of the states in the country have already started holding such summits once in two years. The 2019 BGBS held in February has seen investment to the tune of Rs 2.84 lakh crore, which is expected to create 8 to 10 lakh jobs in the state. The next BGBS will be held in 2021 instead of 2020. “86 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) were signed, while 45 business to consumer (B2C) and 1,200 business to business (B2B) meetings were held,” a senior official of the state Finance department said.
