  • The skis and helmet he was wearing were reported to be rented, however, and are in the possession of the police, who are examining them for defects.

  • "The helmet does a very good job at protecting against skull lacerations and skull fractures, but it doesn't seem to have much effect on concussions or traumatic brain injuries"

  • according to Jasper Shealy, professor emeritus at Rochester Institute of Technology, helmets do not prevent injuries such as the tearing of brain tissue. Shealy has been studying snow-related injuries in Vermont for 30 years, and says that helmets might not be able to protect the wearer against what he termed ‘rotational’ injuries. His research, he added, has failed to register a decline in head injuries as a result of helmet use. He concluded: “The helmet does a very good job at protecting against skull lacerations and skull fractures, but it doesn’t seem to have much effect on concussions or traumatic brain injuries. Our guess is that this is due to the fact that those injuries are occurring at such a magnitude of energy that they overwhelm what a helmet can do for you.” A review of 16 studies on ski and snowboarding injuries was recently carried out by the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma in the US, in which the unanimous conclusion of the authors was that helmets save lives. Dr Adil H. Haider, trauma surgeon and professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins University, said: “They (helmets) protect against serious, even fatal head injuries. There really is a great case to be made for wearing helmets. By increasing awareness and giving people scientific proof, we hope behaviour changes will follow.”

    One thing for sure though, hide away the yahoo checkbook from BOD, MM and Goldman before they cause more grieve to yhoo shareholders and
    Take the remaining BABA shares in yahoo possession and distribute them to existing yhoo shareholders. immediately.
    hint: baba is way more valuable than yhoo

  • Yahoo sold half its stake in September 2012 for $7.1 billion before tax, or $13 a share. (Alibaba would close at $94 exactly two years later.)

    the SQN3110 Andromeda is the BaseBand SmartPhone chip, but since then all that Marketing B/S of Streamthis and that , Firefly became colibri(hummingbird) the SQN3110 got lost to design engineers.....

    it says in their StreamRich web site:
    StreamrichLTE is Sequans’ product line for high-end mobile and portable devices. StreamrichLTE provides maximum LTE throughput and support for advanced features required for the highest performance smartphones, tablets and CPE.

    But, on second thought; I think that SP is solely for Mont Blanc LTE/WiMAX Platform.
    However, if that LTE/WiMax- SQN5120 wiggles a wimax SP, why couldn't the LTE SQN3000 series portion wiggle a standalone LTE SP?

    making a quick story, long
    Prior to the Fujitsu cross licensing agreement, they were marketing one or two BB-LTE chips for smartphones and they listed a Fujitsu MB2g3g4g,etc IR chip which had been approved/tested by SQNS.
    That deal was somewhat detrimental because any SP designer would have to deal seperately between Sequans and Fujitsu, buying and support,,like Baseband Sequans and Radio Fujitsu. Very convoluted and designers do not appreciate it, they'd rather go do a one shop stop-Qualcomm,GCT Semi,BRCM,TI...
    about a year or so ago, they licensed from fujitsu the LTE part of their IR(or something like that). and came out with integrated LTE BB+IR.
    Intel bought out that part of Fujitsu, but only King Karam and BOD know the details of the Sequans/Fujitsu pact.
    I have a suspicion that the Intel/Fujitsu deal, snipped off Sequans from at least marketing their LTE BB/IR to the smartphone or perhaps Sequans just can't find a SP designer to integrate SQNS standalone LTE BB/IR.

    It was around this time Sequans came out with a different "marketing plan- StreamRich/Lite, EZLinkLTE
    All in all, I think Sequans LTE BB/IR chipset can be used in a SP-LTE but the SP market also requires 2g,3g, integration....QCOM controls about 90% of this SP chipset market.

    and to make a long story, very quickly
    Sequans CEO,BOD, and Marketing are all screwed up.
    Sequans engineering is good and someone told me they have pretty good patents... , but they are worth current market cap....jmo

    did you know that Samsung have their very own BB and use SiliconMotion (SIMO) for the IR portion...This LTE-IR is one of SIMO's business division, but Sammy integrates that IR into their own BB in one or two of their high selling smartphones, SIMO designs LTE solely for Sammy, and no one else.
    If you put this plan in front of Karam/BOD they'd probably say bah,humbug,,,what they don't get is you need to pick and chose your LTE partner, else QCOM destroys you. jlta

    Investors are betting even more money on LTE-only chips.

    Israeli LTE chip firm Altair Semiconductor has raised a fresh $25 million, led by new investor Jerusalem Global Ventures, the company told VentureBeat. The round, which closed in March, brings Altair’s total funding to more than $125 million.

    The company’s big focus has been on LTE-only chipsets. By eschewing legacy 3G connectivity, Altair is able to make LTE chips that are significantly cheaper than the competition.

    How much cheaper? Altair was able to offer Verizon LTE chips for its inexpensive Ellipsis Android tablets for just $30, while Qualcomm chips would have been closer to the $80 to $90 range, cofounder Eran Eshed tells me. Those cheap LTE chips allow Verizon to offer the Ellipsis for free with a two-year data contract, or $250 at full price.

    Altair is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Atheros, which bet its business entirely on Wi-Fi chips more than a decade ago, long before Wi-Fi became almost a standard feature in gadgets. Qualcomm scooped up Atheros for $3.1 billion a few years ago to get into the Wi-Fi chip market.

    “I’m sure that if we can take the cost down to Wi-Fi [chip] levels, that’s a serious disruption,” Eshed said. “We’ll see this market take off to the point that it would make sense to integrate this hardware into devices even if a certain percentage don’t get activated.”

    Eshed couldn’t say how much cheaper Altair is aiming to make its chips, but he hinted that it will be “significantly” less than the $30 price of its current products.

    While most cities are decently covered in 4G LTE networks today, it will be some time until 4G reaches the expansive coverage of older 3G and 2G networks. So, not surprisingly, Eran thinks it will be a few years until Altair’s chips will be suitable for smartphones. But for now, the company’s technology is ideal for things like tablets and laptops.
