33 Postcards- Ritz

33 Postcards Movie Premiere At Randwick Ritz Sydney, by Eva Rinaldi

Tonight saw 33 Postcards enjoy its premiere at the Randwick Ritz, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The night was not only a movie premiere but also an event somewhat designed to raise awareness and funds for educational and arts programs, tied into the film.

33 Postcards enjoyed strong media support by popular radio station 2UE and benefiting Sydney Children’s Choir and their Bursary Program, giving disadvantaged kids musical and educational opportunities that would have otherwise likely been out of their grasp.

The acclaimed cast and crew of 33 Postcards enjoyed drinks and bites with their fan base, insiders, and entertainment media, and also lapped up performances from the Sydney Children’s Choir and Chinese Lion Dancers.

Then it was time for the Australian theatrical premiere of the flick.

The film was shot in both China and Sydney, Australia in 2010. It’s the story of Chinese orphan Mei Mei (Zhu Lin) who for a decade of dreams about embracing her Australian sponsor Dean Randall (Guy Pearce). It’s not until she reaches 16 years of age, when her orphanage travels down under to Australia to attend a Choir Festival, Mei Mei takes the opportunity to look him up. What she finds however is a far cry from the idyllic life he depicted in his postcards. Initially mismatched, together they begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance. It’s trial, tribulation, and living to fight and survive another day.

Dean is actually a convict in prison for manslaughter, so you can imagine the issues that brings on.

33 postcards won the Community Relations Commission Award at Sydney Film Festival and Victor Dominello MP NSW Minister aptly stated "33 Postcards, inspired by real life stories, explores how two individuals come together despite two different cultures, ages and unexpected circumstances." This evocative film portrays sensitively how people of vastly different cultural backgrounds can interact effectively in our society."

This is an unique and touching story that is rarely told about the relationship that some Aussies have with Chinese Orphans.

It’s not quite for everyone, but if you like a story of survival, beating the odds and the world coming together as one sort of thing, this is likely for you.

Well done to everyone involved in making the event a success.

Stars:

Guy Pearce, Zhu Lin, Claudia Karvan, and Lincoln Lewis

Produced by: Australia-China co-production

Efficient Fpga Multiplier Used In Wireless Base Station (figure)

Based on WiMax and its derivatives in emerging broadband wireless standard protocol requires higher and higher throughput and data rate. These agreements made fast chip rate and digital radio processing program can use the FPGA hardware to achieve the best.

FPGA is very suitable Cooperation High-performance, cost-effective solutions to achieve these numbers in the physical layer protocol functions, as they include a wealth of resources:

1.DSP module can be used to achieve a variety of FIR filtering and FFT / IFFT operation of adders and multipliers required / accumulator functions;

2.SERDES transceiver, can support the wireless front-end and baseband digital board between the CPRI and OBSAI interface;

3. FPGA embedded RAM block important memory (EBR), can be used to store filter coefficients, perform block interleaving and FEC decoding to achieve (Turbo, Viterbi, Reed-Solomon, etc.);

4. Speed LVDSI / O, respectively, from the ADC and DAC support to a wide parallel interface. These converters are defined RF / analog functions and low-cost digital baseband logic between the boundaries. Interface, the higher the rate, low-cost FPGA solution that can integrate more statistics on the frequency / digital down conversion function.

This article focuses on the first resource that DSP multiplication module. Multiplication by reducing and optimizing DSP FFT and FIR in the module implementation, designers can minimize the use of resources to meet the throughput requirements under, allowing users to use the most cost-effective ready-made FPGA devices. The following four types of multipliers saving techniques in this introduction.

Functions for efficient complex multiplication WiMaxOFDM

WiMax system design, an important feature is to support orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). FPGA makes use of IFFT and FFT, respectively in the discrete time realization of OFDM transmitter and receiver become particularly vulnerable. Such as 802.16a and other agreements require 256 samples of the FFT. The 802.16e The agreement calls for a variety of FFT samples, or the flexibility to adjust the FFT samples to meet the dynamic channel and bandwidth requirements (Extensible OFDMA).

Complex multiplication In the implementation of the FFT 256 and 1024 samples, the Radix-4 structure can be the most efficient use of multipliers. FFT Algorithm 4 samples by multiplex Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) butterfly structure decomposition. For example, a 16-point FFT can be extracted by time, by taking or other related frequency decomposition method with two Radix-4DFT structure to achieve. Level 1 4 4 samples from the DFT composition, level 2 4 4 o’clock from the same DFT component. Since the output of each DFT requirements before the next level in the feed for the results presented provide three phases factors, so the first 1 and level 2 the phase factor between the needs of 9 9 complex multiplication.

First glance, the implementation of a complex multiplication requires four multipliers and two adder / subtractor. However, the expression can be re-written in another only three multipliers, three adders and two subtraction expression. It is noteworthy that the adder is the core logic in the FPGA implementation, using a rich bit by bit into bit mode (ripplemode) generic programmable logic unit (PLC) chip.

If D = Dr + jDi is the plural of data, C = Cr + jCi are complex coefficients, then the standard complex multiplication expression as follows:

E1: R = D * C = (Dr + jDi) * (Cr + jCi) = Rr + jRi (1)

Where Rr = Dr * Cr-Di * Ci, Ri = Dr * Ci + Di * Cr

These standards require the use of four multiplier expression. The expression can be re-order algebraic methods to:

E2: Rr = Dr * Cr-Di * Ci (2)

E3: Rr = Dr * Cr-Di * Ci +0 (3)

E4: Rr = Dr * Cr-Di * Ci + (Dr * Ci-Di * Cr) – (Dr * Ci-Di * Cr) (4)

E5: Rr = (Dr * Cr-Dr * Ci + Di * Cr-Di * Ci) + (Dr * Ci-Di * Cr) (5)

Complex expression is the result of the new:

E6: Rr = [(Dr + Di) * (Cr-Ci)] + (Dr * Ci-Di * Cr) (3 times multiplication) (6)

E7: Ri = Dr * Ci + Di * Cr (reuse the product from the Rr) (7)

Shown in Figure 1, the optimal complex multiplication can be three multipliers, three adders and two subtractor realized. It is noteworthy that, in the FPGA, the addition / subtraction module relative die area used is less than 18 Ã? 18 multiplier module.

Set Up a Home Office Wireless Sound System

Set Up a Home Office Wireless Sound System

If you’ve used any sort of wireless device — telephone, laptop, PDA, or even a simple remote control — you know how convenient it can be. You’re not tethered to … well, to anything. And you’re free to move around while doing your work.

One area that’s ripe for wireless is a home or office sound system. Once a dream, it’s now relatively cheap and easy to set up such a system. Imagine being able to listen to your digital music without wires – you’ve probably got most of the components already. For a couple of hundred dollars or less, you can have a great wireless sound system.

Why Go Wireless?

Obviously, the main advantage to going wireless is to cut down on all of those pesky cables that have been the bane of audiophiles for decades. With

wireless, you can place your speakers just about anywhere in your home without being limited to the length of wire that connects back to your audio system.

If you’re like many people these days, you’ve probably got more music in a digital format like MP3 than you have on CD. Maybe you’ve ripped your CDs and/or

downloaded music from the iTunes Store or other popular online music vendors. It’s easier to play these files directly from your computer instead of burning

them on to a CD and having to fumble with those disks.

And let’s face it: no matter how good your PC speakers are, they’re no match for a decent set of stereo speakers. Piping your music to speakers, even those

in another room, will only enhance your listening pleasure.

http://www.papatek.com/Cell-Phone-Accessories/
How It Works

A wireless sound system works sort of like radio. A transmitter is connected to a device — usually a computer — that stores and plays your music.  A

receiver, plugged into a stereo or a set of speakers, picks up the signal from the transmitter. There are two ways in which signals can be sent from the

transmitter — analog and digital.

Analog is similar to FM (Frequency Modulation) radio. The signal is strong and constant, but the frequency of the signal changes slightly based on the

information being sent. If you still listen to terrestrial (as opposed to satellite) radio, you’re probably familiar with FM.  The quality of the signal is

good and signal strength is decent, though it can be affected by barriers (like walls) in the way of the signal.

Digital, on the other hand, converts sounds to packets of electronic data. In the case of a wireless audio system, this data is sent over the air from a

transmitter and the data is converted back to audio when it reaches the receiver. It’s really the same principle as a wireless Internet connection.

Wireless devices, like the ones described in this Tech Tip, operate over a specific range of frequencies — usually between 900 MHz to 2.4 GHz. This range of frequencies is used by most consumer wireless devices. That means a consistent level of signal quality, but it can also lead to interference from other devices. Luckily, the hardware used in setting up a wireless sound system enables you to select different frequencies to avoid or at least minimize interference.

Ways to Go Wireless

There are a couple of ways you can go wireless. If you’re an iPod user, you can turn your gadget into a music transmitter using the Wireless Music System for iPod by Logitech. This device clips to your iPod, turning it into a transmitter. You connect a small base station to your stereo or a set of powered speakers and you can use the iPod’s controls you can shuffle through songs or play your favorite play lists.

You can also get FM transmitters for certain makes of MP3 player. The transmitter — like iriver AFT-100 or the Belkin TuneCast II — plugs into your MP3 player and literally sends the music on the device to an FM receiver. That receiver could be a stereo or even a car radio. Essentially the transmitter turns your MP3 player into a short-range radio station. The range of these devices is limited – about ten to 30 feet. But over those distances, the signal is clear and has little or no interference.

Or, you can use a desktop computer (which is often called a media server) to store and broadcast your audio. You don’t need an up-to-date, lightning fast system with the latest version of your operating system (although that does help), either. An older computer running Windows XP and with a decent amount of memory and a fair sized hard drive is usually more than enough. I know at least two people who turned old eMachines desktops with 512 MB of memory and 80 GB hard disks into serviceable media servers. Using a software media player — like Windows Media Player, iTunes, RealPlayer, or WinAmp — you can create play lists or play all of your audio in bulk.

A popular way to turn a PC into a sound system is the Logitech Wireless Music System. This device consists of two parts. The first is a small transmitter that you plug into a USB port on your computer. The second is a receiver that you connect to your stereo or a set of wireless speakers. Then, just fire up the media player on your computer and you’re ready to go.

http://www.papatek.com/USB-Wireless-LAN-Adapter
The Linksys Wireless Media Center Extender not only does audio, but also video and Internet radio. The Extender looks like a DVD player with a small antenna at the back. You connect the Extender directly to your TV or stereo, and then install the software that interacts with the Extender on your PC. To use the

Media Center Extender, your PC needs to be running Windows XP Media Center Edition and you’ll need to have a wireless network up and running.

Apple has always had an edge over PCs in multimedia. If you have a recent Mac and a high-speed Internet connection, you can turn that Mac into a media server using an AirPort wireless base station. Just plug the AirPort base station into your stereo or your speakers, and let your Mac and the iTunes software do the rest. According to Apple, iTunes will automatically detect the base station and you can start playing your tunes immediately. However, at , the AirPort base station isn’t cheap, especially if you want to have your audio piped to multiple locations in your home.

Speakers

Getting good sound from a wireless system – or any audio system for that matter – is partly a matter of having a good audio source to work with and mainly

a matter of having a decent set of speakers.
The great thing about a wireless sound system is that you don’t necessarily need to buy a new set of speakers. If you have a stereo, then you can use the

speakers that you already have. If course, if you can afford it, a new set of speakers can’t hurt. The only problem with using stereo speakers is that you’re

still restricted by the speaker cables. Your sound source can be anywhere, but the position of the speakers is limited to the length of cable connecting them

to your stereo.

Wireless speakers, on the other hand, can free you of that limitation. You can (within reason) position the speakers anywhere you want in your house or even

outside. Most are light enough that you can position them anywhere. With most wireless speakers, however, will need to be positioned near an electrical

socket — this will limit where you can position your speakers. There are battery-powered wireless speakers, but most of them only hold a charge for about

four hours. As the batteries run down, so will the quality of the audio that’s coming out of them.

You can expect to pay several hundred dollars for a decent set of wireless speakers. Models from Panasonic, for example, can cost anywhere from 0 to

,700 dollars. Ones from Acoustic Research or JBL will cost quite a bit more. But, as with anything else, you get what you pay for. The quality of the sound

will be better with a slightly higher-end set of speakers. That said, you should really only buy what you can afford and if you can afford it.
You can usually find some pretty good bargains on online retailers – papatek.com, for example.

Of course, how you position your speakers in a room is almost as important as choosing the right speakers. How you position your speakers will depend on thesize of the room and its layout. You can find some good advice on this topic here and here.

http://www.papatek.com/LCD-Panel
A Few Caveats

Remember that a wireless sound system has a limited range — from around 30 feet to 100 feet, maybe a bit more. This isn’t a problem in the average home, but if you want to play music outside then you might experience a drop in the quality of the sound.

Speaking of putting your speakers outside, while it may seem like a good idea to have your favorite bit of music playing during a BBQ or garden party,remember that many speakers aren’t meant for use outdoors. They could get damaged by the weather or careless guests. If you’re using battery-powered speakers, remember that the life of the batteries is limited — probably (hopefully!) shorter than the duration of your party.

On top of that, the sound that is sent to speakers might not arrive at the same moment, depending on how far the from your media center the speakers are set.

In most cases, you might not notice any problems with the sound. Sometimes, though, you will definitely notice a small lag. If that happens, then you’ll have

to experiment with the placement of your speakers.

As mentioned earlier, most wireless devices operate in a similar range of frequencies. Some wireless speakers work in the range of 900 MHz. That’s the

frequency range used by many common household wireless devices like cordless telephones or baby monitors. You might encounter some interference from such devices in your home or even those used by a neighbor (depending on how close your nearest neighbor lives to you).

Conclusion

For less than a couple of hundred dollars (more, if you want to splurge), you can put together a decent wireless sound system in your home or office.

Installing and configuring the hardware and software doesn’t take long and once that task is out of the way, you can enjoy your music anywhere in your homeor office without worrying about stringing (and tripping over) a knot of unsightly cables.Or you may just buy the things on net,such as papatek.com

Living the Good Life with 4g Wireless in Austin Texas

Living the Good Life with 4g Wireless in Austin Texas

Living in Austin, Texas is good.  From the nice sunny hot weather, to the laid back attitude and the foot-stomping tunes rolling out of beer joint after hip beer joint, there’s not a lot to complain about.  In fact, these are the factors that keep thousands of University students and many young people from all over the country flocking to Austin, Texas each and every year.  While it might seem that it would be a big challenge to hit the books with so much distraction around, somehow the students at Austin seem to manage.  It might be, however, that they’ve got such great technological services and connectivity on their sides.  There are many ways to study today, not the least of which requires the internet!  The internet is an important academic tool that not only allows students a broader base of knowledge and research at the touch of a button, but has improved communications such that networking and professor to student contact makes academic life that much richer.

 

There are many ways to get online from a personal laptop to a home PC LAN connection; from the public library, to a campus computer lab.  What the students have really been after, however, is something that lets them combine their two great loves: the city of Austin, and the pursuit of academics.  They don’t just want Wi-Fi while confined to campus, instead, the students want internet that is fast, reliable and can go anywhere around town just like they do.  Today, that solution is called 4g wireless internet.

 

Many people have used 3g wireless, especially students who know that 3g is what allows them to access the internet on their phones and other mobile devices.  The next generation, literally, of this innovation in communications services, is 4g wireless.  With this ‘4th generation’ of internet in hand, students can access broadband speeds from anywhere around town with the ease of using a cell phone.  That means that anywhere they like to sit and think can instantly be hooked up to a high speed connection.  When the internet is high speed, things like downloading and uploading important academic files can be done in a flash from anywhere and everywhere.  People are no longer confined to certain areas of the world or spots on campus, and can feel free to roam about the great, green, city of Austin.

 

Academics are important everywhere around the country.  For some cities however, academics are more than an aspect of the city, they are at the heart and soul of it.  That could not be truer than in Austin, Texas.  What people in Austin really want is the chance to learn and express themselves through study, writing and music.  With the internet, all of the above are so much easier!  With mobile broadband internet, the reliability and high speeds of any home connection are rivaled, but the convenience factor is upped to the max.  If you’re ready to get involved with the future of internet connectivity in academic towns and cities like Austin, make the switch today!

The World Of Wimax Wireless Internet Reaches Abilene Texas

The World Of Wimax Wireless Internet Reaches Abilene Texas

Texas is a big place, far larger than most outsiders could ever believe.  While the biggest, and most famous cities in Texas, including Dallas, Houston and Austin tend to get a lot of the attention, there are many smaller urban centers that are currently adding to the great economic landscape of Texas.  Rivaled only by its natural beauty, Texas is proud to offer fine educational institutions and be the home of many fine, internationally renowned companies and organizations.  One such example of a smaller Texas urban center that offers important such services is Abilene.

Although not the most recognizable name on the map, at least to outsiders, with over 100,000 residents and several major colleges and universities, Abilene has made its mark amongst Texas urban centers.  As such, it is a community geared towards the future, always looking to make improvements in areas like science and technologies.  Currently, Abilene is on the forefront of a movement revolutionizing internet in the United States and around the world.  It is the latest generation of internet technology, 4G or fourth generation broadband.

Most people know about 3G internet technology.  For those unfamiliar it is what is available on mobile devices like cell phones, blackberries and iPhones.  While it is convenient, and can be used for everything from sending emails to watching YouTube videos, there are many basic functions 3G technology lacks.  With the old, 3G technology it is impossible to send or receive large files, for example.  While it may be possible to listen to music, downloading music directly to the device may either be complicated or impossible.  Additionally this service is expensive, and is not included in the average “talking and texting” phone plan OR the average home internet scheme.  As such, it can be just as expensive or more expensive than paying for the fully functional internet you’re using at home.  Yikes!

As an alternative, 4G internet provides users with fully mobile broadband internet technology.  This means that just like a 3G device users can get the internet anywhere and everywhere, yes, including on the move like in the bus or in the car, but can also get broadband speeds and quality.  The implications are great for education and commerce, since it is possible for the first time to get things done no matter where you are, as long are you are a subscriber to the service known as WiMax.  This frightening looking term only means that your internet is coming from towers that send out a powerful internet signal, just like your cell phone intercepts a signal from a tower, instead of a wire, or local Wi-Fi router.

It’s easy to see how this kind of service puts Abilene ahead of much of the country in terms of information technology, and cutting edge communications infrastructure.  While it may not be the largest city in America, let alone Texas, Abilene has  powerful ally on its side in the form of this new mobile internet service.  When broadband internet sticks with you, the world, or at least the World Wide Web is truly at your fingertips.

Go online today to learn more about clear internet Abilene.  When clear Abilene is there for you, the internet is always by your side.

Wireless Internet Helps Everyone Better Understand Austin, Texas

Wireless Internet Helps Everyone Better Understand Austin, Texas

Unfortunately, in many areas of the world, people think of negative stereotypes as soon as they hear the word “Texas,” but as Austin residents can tell you, their city is as far as it gets from many of those negative ideas.  People who have never visited Austin or Texas in general tend to think everyone speaks with a slow twang, and as a result, many people think that Texans are slower in general.  It’s really a shame that so many people could be so misled about such a nice community, but if more people would use their wireless internet access to do a little research, they’d likely be quite surprised about what they learn about Austin, Texas.

 

As the capitol of Texas, Austin is a very diverse city that focuses a lot of political issues.  Even though much of the world thinks that Texas is a conservative state, the political hub of the state, Austin, is quite a liberal city.  Additionally, the city has a very active artistic scene, especially in the area of music.  The TV show Austin City Limits and the annual South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival are just two of the reasons the city has been dubbed “The Live Music Capital of the World.”  Slogans like “Keep Austin Weird” embody the fact that defining the city is nearly impossible because of how unique it is.  The best way to get a real feel for Austin is to visit it, but for many Americans that just isn’t a real possibility.  Fortunately for them, they can learn a lot more about the city and the rest of Texas by doing some research online.  There are plenty of great resources that enable people to read or watch videos about Austin, and since wireless internet signals make it possible for Americans to get online anywhere, finding a little time to do some research should be easy enough for everyone.

 

One of the things that may surprise many Americans is that Austin is one of the most technologically advanced cities in the country.  Austinites read and write blogs more than residents of any other large city in the country, and they use the internet more than any other city in the state.  Clearly, wireless internet plays a big role in Austinites’ lives, and it’s beginning to play an even bigger role as internet connections become even faster.  Recently, the fourth generation of wireless service has become available to residents, and its usage has been rapidly expanding.  Many Austin residents prefer to utilize 4G internet service because it is four times faster than any other wireless service, which means they can use it quickly anywhere.

 

With some of the best wireless internet technology in the country, Austin residents can help spread the word about their great city.  As more and more Austinites blog about the reality of their lives, they can help provide insight into their own experiences and break down the negative stereotypes that outsiders may have.  When more Americans have greater access to information about what a nice city Austin is, they’ll be able to better understand why it is frequently rated as one of the best metropolitan areas in which to live.
