Intel to Buy a Wireless Division of Infineon

By CHRIS V. NICHOLSON and ANDREW ROSS SORKIN

wlc_image_464

Less than two weeks after saying it would buy McAfee, Intelannounced Monday that it would acquire the wireless business of the German chip maker Infineon for about $1.4 billion in cash.

Paul S. Otellini, the head of Intel, said that more and more devices were connecting to the Internet and that wireless connectivity was a sector where the company saw “growth potential.”

The Infineon unit makes chips used in laptops, netbooks and smartphones, including the AppleiPhone, and will strengthen Intel’s lineup of 3G, 4G, Wimax and Wi-Fi cards.

Intel expects the deal to close in the first quarter of next year, pending regulatory approvals.

Bernd Laux, a research analyst with Cheuvreux in Frankfurt, said the price tag was “fair,” and called the deal “smart and well-timed,” but predicted “the equity market will give Infineon only very brief credit for the disposal.”

Shares of Infineon fell 20 cents to close at 4.45 euros ($5.63) in trading in Frankfurt. Shares of Intel fell 41 cents, or 2.23 percent, to close at $17.96.

The deal would give Intel a powerful foothold in the market for smartphone chips, a segment of the business that is experiencing strong growth. Smartphone sales worldwide in the second quarter of 2010 rose 50.5 percent from the same period in 2009, according to the research firm Gartner.

Infineon said the wireless unit accounted for about 917 million euros in earnings — about a third of the company’s revenue — in the last fiscal year. Its sales in the third quarter increased 38 percent.

Intel’s own efforts to build a wireless chip business through its Atom processors have faltered, analysts say. Intel has deals with LG and Nokia to provide wireless chips. Mr. Otellini has been seeking ways to get into this market and diversify the company beyond PC chips.

Infineon said this month that it was seeking “a potential transaction” for the wireless chip unit.

El Fútbol y el Mundo por Oscar Fernando Passet

No me estoy equivocando con el título, estoy compartiendo con Uds mi duda, que se mueve mas rápido, el Fútbol o el Mundo? Quien necesita de Quien?

Este deporte tan profesionalizado y tan amateur a la vez, el Fútbol es un diamante, tiene muchas caras y cada uno puede reflejarse de una manera diferente.

Las Federaciones, los clubes, las empresas, los hinchas, las ilusiones, el negocio, los jugadores. Quien tiene mas fuerza en este mecanismo? Quien es la pieza mas importante? Sin duda, y esto lo hablo con conocimiento de causa, lo mas importante son los jugadores, quienes despiertan pasiones, quienes generan amores incomprensibles, quienes provocan iras y tristezas, en definitiva, quienes hacen girar la bola. Si, no faltará el hincha que hable desde el corazón y la pasión, que me diga, “los jugadores pasan, la camiseta y este amor queda para siempre” y en parte tienen razón pero no son mas que los jugadores, quienes harán grande y con historia esa camiseta, ese club.

Ya no caben dudas que el Fútbol es un negocio, para muchos rentables, para otros una cruz muy pesada de llevar. Uds me preguntarán, “donde radica la diferencia si el deporte es el mismo”..si, el deporte es el mismo, pero las sociedades no, y las reglas que imponen las distintas sociedades (países) mas distintas todavía. Voy a tratar de ser claro y que me entiendan, los clubes y simpatizantes del Primer Mundo, entendieron que el fútbol es un negocio y se manejan como empresas, sustentadas claro está, con sus contratos publicitarios, y el apoyo de capitales privados. Compran jugadores a precios exorbitantes, pagan premios inigualables, poseen los mejores campos de juego y luchan por vender al precio mas caro su camiseta, pero todavía no resolvieron un gran problema, no generan sus propios talentos, no les nacen, no los tienen. A partir de ahí, comienza a cerrarse el círculo, y el fútbol del Tercer Mundo, empieza a dar batalla, a emparejar la lucha, en definitiva, todo se hace en busca del resultado, de ser el mejor, del triunfo, y eso se logra, con los talentosos.

Los clubes del Tercer Mundo, saben que esto es un negocio, pero su sociedad no lo acepta, siguen pensando que lo que vale es el sentimiento, que los clubes son de los socios y que jugadores siempre van a salir, nada mas lejos, Maradona, Pelé, Platini, Sidane, Messi, Ronaldo, Cristiano Ronaldo, Iniesta, Ibrahimovich, que pocos talentos para tanta cantidad de jugadores, lo que demuestra que esto se acaba, tiene fecha de vencimiento, que el talento tiene que sustentarse con el trabajo y la disciplina, cosa que no abunda en esta parte del mundo.

En este punto, comienza una carrera contra el tiempo, acá se modifican las reglas del mercado, pero ese es otro tema, otra historia..

Ahora, tienen la respuesta? Quien se mueve mas rápido? Quien necesita de Quien?

Argentina players celebrate after the 5th-6th place playoff match between Argentina and Spain at the World Basketball Championship,


Argentine basketball national team took the fifth place after beating the Spanish team 86-81 in the World Basketball Championship in Turkey, played in the Sinam Erdem in Istanbul in front of 4000 spectators.

The Spanish team had in the beginning a weak defense and difficulties in the attack.

The opposite occurred with the Argentine players who left everything on the court, and they showed good basketball with a partial advantage of 25 goals for, 59-34.

But in the third quarter, in the 11th minute, the Spanish team imposed with little difference, 61 to 60.

The Argentine national team did not lose hope and won 86-81.

For the albicelestes was a double win, as Argentina won against the team that had eliminated them from the World Cup in Japan in 2006 and now Spain had to settle for the sixth place.

Luis Scola made the tiebreaking basket with 1:38 left, and Argentina blew a 25-point lead before beating Spain 86-81 on Sunday for fifth place in the world championship.

Carlos Delfino scored 27 points and Scola added 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Argentines, who led 49-32 at halftime and seemed to be cruising to victory before a huge rally by Spain, the 2006 world champion.

Marc Gasol's free throw tied it at 80 with 2:11 remaining before Scola put Argentina back on top with a bucket in the lane.

Gasol made another free throw before Pablo Prigioni hit a clinching 3-pointer to make it 85-81 with 15 seconds to play.

Both teams were among the world's best over the last decade, but played without their biggest stars — Manu Ginobili for Argentina, Pau Gasol for Spain — and will have to qualify next summer for the 2012 Olympics. Argentina will host the FIBA Americas tournament.

Rudy Fernandez scored 31 points and Marc Gasolhad 16 points and 10 boards for Spain.


Technical data:

* 86 – Argentina (23 + 26 + 16 + 21): Scola (22), Prigioni (17), Oberto (10), Delfino (27) and Jasen (3), original team -Cequeira, Quinteros, Leonardo Gutierrez (6) and Mata (1).

* 81 – Spain (16 + 16 + 30 + 19): Rubio (3), Rudy (31), Navarro (2), Garbajosa (3) and Gasol (16)-starting team, “Raul Reyes (6), Vasquez (5 ), Llull (7), San Emeterio (8) and Mumbrú.

Referees: Jose Carrion (PUR), Ilija Belosevic (SRB) and Scott Butler (AUS).

Fran Vazquez and Hernán Jasen were eliminated by five personal fouls.

ISTANBUL (2010 FIBA World Championship) – Stars from Argentina, Lithuania, Serbia, Turkey and the USA have been recognised for their outstanding tournaments with the All Star Five for the 2010 FIBA World Championship announced following Sunday's final between Turkey and the USA.

The All Star Five is made up of Luis Scola at centre, Linas Kleiza and Kevin Durantas forwards, and Hedo Turkoglu and Milos Teodosic in the guard positions.

The five players, each voted best player in his position by a selection of top basketball media representatives, received their awards on-court during the FIBA World Championship medal ceremony.

Additionally, they were each rewarded with a special edition Tissot PRC 200 Autoquartz watch by the Swiss watchmaker and FIBA global partner. The watches, which include a unique case back, were handed to them by Tissot's President Francois Thiebaud.

Scola led the tournament in scoring with an average of 27.1ppg, also pulling in 7.9rpg. Scola scored 30 points or more in five straight games, including 37 points in the Eight-Final against Brazil.

Kleiza helped the Lithuanian team win the bronze medal with 19ppg and 7.1rpg, highlighted by 33 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists in the playoff against Serbia.

Durant scored a tournament high 38 points in the Semi Final win over Lithuania, and led the USA to the gold medal with 28 points in the final, and an average of 22.8ppg and 6.1rpg over the tournament.

Turkoglu led the Turkish team on their remarkable run to the silver medal by averaging 12.3ppg, 4.2rpg and 3.4 apg. His best performance came against France in the Eight-Finals where he had 20 points and 4 rebounds.

Teodosic will be remembered for his game winning three-pointer in the Quarter Final win over Spain, but also shone throughout the FIBA World Championship, averaging 11.3ppg and 5.6apg, good for third in the tournament.


Las Leonas win BDO FIH World Cup



Host nation Argentina have won the BDO FIH World Cup thanks to a 3-1 victory over The Netherlands. It was a stunning match between the two top ranked teams, but two Carla REBECCHI goals either side of a Noel BARRIONUEVO penalty corner gave Las Leonas victory over the Olympic champions. The Bronze medal was won by England, who defeated Germany 2-0 to claim their first ever World Cup medal.

It was a stunning night for Las Leonas, who saw their star player Luciana AYMAR named as the player of the tournament. Incredibly, AYMAR was also playing her 300th international match for Argentina, with winning the World Cup being the perfect way to crown the occasion. The best goalkeeper award went to England's Beth STORRY, who helped her side to a Bronze medal earlier in the day thanks to victory over Germany. The best young player award went to India's Rani RAMPAL, while Maartje PAUMEN was given the prize for tournament top goalscorer. Australia were the recepients of the fair play prize.

The match itself was a brilliant encounter between the two best teams in the world. Argentina were clearly inspired by their cheering crowd, going on the offensive from the first moment, and struck the opening goal when Carla REBECCHI fired into the net in only the third minute. Noel BARRIONUEVO netted a second just four minutes later to send the crowd into delerium.

Maartje PAUMEN pulled a goal back ten minutes after half time with a ferocious penalty corner flick that gave Belen SUCCI no chance of saving, hitting the roof of the net at breakneck speed. It was PAUMAN's 11th goal of the tournament, and certainly her most important to date. Argentina won a penalty corner of their own minutes later, but failed to take advantage. However, Argentina were not to be denied a third goal when Carla REBECCHI scored her second of the game, slamming home a volley from a tight angle after Alejandra GULLA hit the post with a diving shot. The goal was greeted with wild cheers and singing from the huge Argentinean following in the stadium, who were really beginning to raise the decibels to unforeseen levels at this event. Arguably the biggest roar of the night came when Belen SUCCI pulled off a stunning penalty corner save to vitually seal victory for Las Leonas. It was a special night not only for Las Leonas, but also for hockey in general, with a huge fireworks display bringing the curtain down on an incredible two weeks of action.

Manu Ginobili: Me hubiera gustado estar ahí para abrazarlos otra vez"


Verlos festejar otra vez, en un partido tan importante, tan especial... fue impresionante". Por Manu Ginóbili/ Para LA NACION

SAN ANTONIO.- Mi mujer estaba con los nenes de un lado para el otro y me quedé solo viendo el partido. ¡No podía hablar con nadie! Y éste sí que era un cruce para tener alguien con quien descargarse, así que no me quedó otra que hacerlo por el Twitter. Me salvó el Chapu que se metió con algunas cositas. Porque también los llamé por ahí a mis hermanos, pero Leandro estaba ocupado y peor que yo; y el Sepo, como siempre, estaba comiéndose las uñas, así que no podía escribir. La verdad es que estuve muy tenso durante todo el partido y gracias a los chicos, a esa garra, a ese sentido de equipo que demuestran cada día, ahora puedo sentir esta emoción enorme.

Es que fue un partidazo y había demasiadas cosas en juego. Por los que faltamos, porque Fabri estuvo casi una semana en cama y con cinco kilos menos por la enfermedad? ¡porque era Brasil!

Es muy raro que en un partido tan importante como lo fue éste se meta lo que se metió en el primer tiempo. Se arrancó con mucha efectividad, todos muy finos, y se sabía que a lo largo del juego eso no podía seguir así. Se jugó durísimo, muy físico y había que estar atentos. Fue para el que tuvo más oficio y mantuvo la concentración en los momentos clave.

Lo de Luifa... bueno, ustedes ya lo saben bien. No sé. Realmente no sé qué más decir, no tiene palabras. Porque no son solamente los 37 puntos, eso los puede hacer cuando quiera. Sabemos que puede. Fue la responsabilidad que tuvo con las bolas más difíciles, la clase de puntos que metió, especialmente en el final... ¡y el robo del último minuto! Es demasiado, es algo de locos lo que está haciendo.

Pero todos tuvieron lo suyo. Jasen fue clave. Cuando Leandrinho metió esos dos tiples seguidos y Brasil sacó seis de ventaja en el comienzo del último cuarto, parecía que se daba otro partido. Y Pancho, que en realidad es más obrero que un tirador, metió un triple para dar tranquilidad y otro para empatar y agrandarnos.

También Carlitos, con sus penetraciones; ¡Y Fabri, raspándose con todos! Qué lindo es verlo otra vez con la camiseta de la selección. Tiago Splitter es un jugador tremendo y él ni siquiera lo dejó llegar al aro.

Después, Pablo manejando el equipo, Leo metiendo un par de triples importantes, jugando concentrado y duro en defensa. La verdad es que veo cómo el equipo otra vez se pone a la altura de la exigencia del rival. Hace lo que necesita para cada partido. Se ve que es un equipo con otra presencia, con autoridad. Y eso se consigue con todos los años de selección, de conocerse mucho entre los jugadores.

De Lituania no quiero hablar demasiado, porque vi algunas cosas, pero salteadas. Ayer vi el último cuarto contra China. Como ya lo dije en la última columna, lo que más sorprende es que sigan siendo un equipo tan fuerte a pesar de tener una cantidad enorme de ausencias.

Pero en esto tenemos que ser sinceros, la realidad es que éste es, en apariencia, el equipo de Lituania más débil de los últimos años. No quiero que se interprete mal, están jugando muy bien y son peligrosos, pero si teníamos que imaginar un cruce en los octavos de final, era para respetar y tener más cuidado Brasil que Lituania.

Por supuesto que el equipo lo va a salir a jugar de la misma manera, con la misma intensidad. Sabemos que no estamos en condiciones de subestimar a nadie.

Hoy viví algo similar a lo que sentí cuando me tocó quedarme sin jugar en el Preolímpico de Las Vegas y vi al equipo celebrando por televisión. Un poco menos en el partido por el bronce en Pekín, porque aunque no pude jugar esa vez, estaba ahí para agradecerles lo que hicieron.

Pero ayer, verlos festejar otra vez, en un partido tan importante, tan especial... fue impresionante. Tuve otra vez ese cosquilleo en el estómago. Y la verdad es que sabía que en algún momento iba a venir. Me da una gran nostalgia y me hubiera gustado estar ahí para abrazarlos y decirles "gracias" otra vez.

Asteroid Near-Misses Actually Common, Scientists Say

By Denise Chow
SPACE.com Staff Writer
posted: 08 September 2010

Two asteroids swooping past Earth Wednesday may have caught the attention of the public, but events like these are not actually rare, NASA scientists say.

"This is the first time we've seen [two] combined within a 24-hour period, but that's probably because we don't know everything that is out there," said Lindley Johnson, program executive of the Near-Earth Object program at NASA headquarters in Washington.

Single asteroids have been known to make such close passes, but they usually slip by unnoticed, Johnson told SPACE.com.

In fact, with a rough estimate of 50 million unknown asteroids, a 33-foot-wide (10-meter) near-Earth object could pass harmlessly between Earth and the orbit of the moon every day, Johnson added. Such an asteroid might hit Earth's atmosphere once every 10 years, but because of its small size, it would pose no substantial threat to the people or property below.

"They would certainly break up in Earth's atmosphere, or we might get some meteorites on the ground," Johnson said.

In Wednesday's double flyby, the larger of the two space rocks, asteroid 2010 RX30, approached Earth at 5:51 a.m. EDT (0951 GMT), passing within 154,000 miles (248,000 km). It was estimated to be between 33 and 65 feet (10 and 20 meters) wide.

The second asteroid was due to come closer. The 20- to 46-foot-wide (6 to 14 meters) asteroid 2010 RF12 was due to pass within 49,000 miles (79,000 km) of Earth at 5:12 pm EDT (2112 GMT), NASA asteroid trackers said.

Both asteroids flew well inside the orbit of the moon.

Preliminary observations suggested both rocks and their orbits are fairly standard.

"They're pretty common from what we see," Johnson said. "RF12 is in a very Earth-like orbit. If it was larger and worth going to, it might be a candidate for a spaceflight mission in the future, but at 10 meters in size, it's not very interesting."

Astronomers are still unsure where the asteroids originated, but they are hoping that observations taken during the flybys will shed some light.

"We can project their orbits back to see what part of the solar system they came from, and hopefully we'll get some information and be able to relate them to asteroid families," Johnson said.

Because the two asteroids — discovered only three days before their flyby — were moving quickly, finding and tracking them across the sky posed a challenge forseasoned skywatchers. Viewers using a 20-inch (50-cm) telescope should have been able to catch a glimpse, Johnson said.

Asteroid 2010 RF12 was particularly well-positioned for observers in Europe and Africa, he said — "a fairly rapidly moving object across the stellar background, (looking) very much like a satellite that you see crossing through the star field, though not quite that fast."

Using a network of telescopes on the ground and in space, NASA experts and other astronomers routinely track asteroids and comets that may fly uncomfortably near the Earth.

The space agency's Near-Earth Object Observations program is responsible for findingpotentially dangerous asteroids and studying their orbits to determine if they pose a risk of hitting the Earth.

HOCKEYArgentina defeated England in a top of Pool B


Argentina defeated England in a top of the table clash to confirm their place as the winners of Pool B on Day 9 of the BDO FIH Hockey World Cup in Rosario, Argentina.

A penalty corner from Noel BARRIONUEVO and a late strike from Daniela SRUOGA sealed a 2-0 victory against an England team that made their opponents work hard throughout the game. The win means that Argentina will face the runner up in Pool A in their Semi Final, while England must defeat the winner of that Pool if they are to reach the tournament final. Their opponents will be known when the Pool A matches are completed tomorrow.

Earlier in the day, China crushed Spain 6-0 with penalty corner expert MA Yibo netting four goals, while South Africa fell to a 5-3 defeat against Korea.

More information about today's matches can be found below, while full tournament information is available on the FIH microsite:http://www.bdofihworldcup2010.sportcentric.com/


Five in a row for Las Leonas

Argentina won their fifth match in succession to seal top spot in Pool B, battling past a resilient England team 2-0 in front of another sell-out crowd here in Rosario. Noel BARRIONUEVO opened the scoring in the first half with a trade-mark penalty corner flick before Daniela SRUOGA scored a wonderful reverse stick goal from a tight angle on the left of the circle. The defeat for England means that they will face the winner of Pool A in the Semi Finals, which take place on Thursday.

Both teams were treated to a deafening cheer as they entered the field, with the 12000 strong crowd dominated by fans of the host nation. Despite the support for the host team, England also appeared to be boosted by the atmosphere in the stadium, and frustrated Las Leonas for much of the opening ten minutes with some excellent tackling work in midfield. Eventually, Argentina took the lead when Noel BARRIONUEVO sent a hard flick beyond England goalkeeper Beth STORRY, sparking an explosion of noise within the stadium. It was BARRIONUEVO's fifth goal of the tournament. Although England were holding their own against the world number two ranked side, Argentina were creating the clearer goal-scoring chances and a superb save from Beth STORRY stopped Las Leonas from going into half time with a two goal advantage.

The only goal of the second half came in the 67th minute, when Daniela SRUOGA burst into the circle on the left before smashing a stunning reverse stick shot just inside the right post of Beth STORRY's goal. It was a strike worthy of winning any game, but Danny KERRY's England team will take great heart from a gutsy performance against a team considered by many to be the tournament favourites.
