Alex Hammond Blog: Champions Day preview | Racing News

Alex Hammond fancies a French raider in the Champion Stakes – check out her strongest fancies for Ascot on Saturday.

This Saturday I’m back at Ascot for my second QIPCO British Champions Day with Sky Sports Racing and can’t wait to bring you a world-class card.

One of the highlights on the six-race card is the Champion Stakes where Magical is bidding to become the second successive horse to win the Group 1 back-to-back following Cracksman in 2017/2018.

Aidan O’Brien’s five-year-old mare looks as good as ever this year and her trainer has confirmed that. She has an outstanding record at this meeting. Not only did she win this in 2019, but she was also victorious in the 2018 Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes. Her latest run is working out well with fourth placed Sottsass subsequently winning the Arc. She has plenty to recommend her, clearly.

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Apple has announced its newest iPhone during a September media event every year since 2012’s iPhone 5. During the September 2020 Apple event, we got new Apple Watch and iPad models, and a bundled subscription service, but no new iPhone. That didn’t come as a complete surprise, as a delay had been rumored for months. Now, Apple is hosting a second virtual launch event later today, where the iPhone 12 is expected to make its delayed debut. Here’s how to watch Apple’s livestream.

The iPhone isn’t the only missing-in-action update or new launch we’ve been waiting for. These are some of the things we didn’t see in September, but that might (or might not) show up before the end of the year.

E-Commerce In The Age Of Covid-19 Part One: Advances In Merchant Software

This article is the first article of a three-part series on e-commerce addressing the merchant experience, improving consumer experience, and the next generation of technology

Covid-19’s impact on American retailers has been massive — not just in terms of lost income or jobs, but also the accelerated rise in e-commerce volume. Online retail, which had previously taken more than a decade to reach 16%, leapfrogged to 27% in the 2 months following the onset of Covid. Experts forecast this growth will only continue, magnifying the opportunity for e-commerce but also the challenges ahead.

For merchants, the rapid shift from in-store to online has made an e-commerce platform a business necessity. Retailers that had previously sat on the sidelines are now forced to reckon with a new reality. Meanwhile, those that already had strong web platforms are quickly working to improve them. Regardless of their prior embrace of the stage of

iPhone 12 series will have faster Face ID, improved zoom and longer battery life

Yesterday, @PineLeaks a series of information about the “finalization and modification” of the upcoming iPhone 12 series. According to him, all the important information about this series is already public. However, there is still some relevant information for leaks. According to the leak, Apple still intends to launch the “dynamic partition algorithm” function, which may make Face ID faster. Due to the smaller size of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini, the width of the bangs will reduce. It will achieve this by arranging the components of the TrueDepth camera system more “tightly”. However, there will be an increase in height.

iPhone 12 series

Furthermore, the new leak believes that all iPhone 12 models will come with significantly better digital zoom capabilities. Apple will achieve this through software enhancements. Also, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will have a much better optical zoom.

In addition, there may be “a

Chargers’ Mike Pouncey needs hip surgery, will miss season

The Chargers lost center Mike Pouncey for the season Thursday because of a hip problem he has been dealing with for years.

The team announced Pouncey would have surgery sometime this month.

“On top of being a Pro Bowl talent, he’s the ultimate captain, teammate and competitor,” general manager Tom Telesco said in a statement. “Quite simply, he’s one of the best leaders I’ve ever been around.”

Pouncey, 31, made the Pro Bowl after his first season with the Chargers in 2018. Before the opener last September, he signed a one-year extension through this season. But Pouncey suffered a season-ending neck injury five games into 2019, and that injury also required surgery.

He made it back to practice early in training camp before leaving the team briefly because of a death in his family. After rejoining the team, Pouncey was unable to practice because of a hip issue dating back

Defence Acquisition Procedure 2020 calls for 50% local content vs 40% earlier

NEW DELHI: Domestically designed, developed and manufactured armaments and defence hardware must have at least 50% indigenous content, as per the new Defence Acquisition Procedure (DAP) which was unveiled on Monday. This is up from 40% in the procedures outlined in 2016.

If a defence platform is manufactured in India, it must have 60% Indian content, according to the DAP 2020, released by defence minister Rajnath Singh. The policy which the defence ministry says is “aligned with the vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat” or Self Reliant India, aims to “empower” the domestic industry through the Make in India initiative.

Atmanirbhar Bharat was introduced by the Modi government in May to kickstart the economy which had come to grinding halt after a stringent lockdown was imposed to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus disease.

Provisions contained in the document are meant to ensure that India turns into a global manufacturing hub.
