Samsung Electronics today unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S20, a new series of flagship devices that fundamentally change the way we capture and experience our world. The Galaxy S20 series introduces a brand-new camera architecture that combines AI with Samsung’s largest image sensor yet for stunning image quality. Along with the camera, the Galaxy S20 makes the experience of everything we love to do with our phones, easier and better—enjoy personalized music for every moment of the day, watch videos the way they are meant to be seen and play console-style games on-the-go.

“As we enter this new decade, 5G will completely change how we communicate and how we experience the world around us,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “As all three Galaxy S20 variants come with 5G connectivity, Samsung is providing a next-generation device for transforming people’s lives. With an incredible, AI powered camera, you can capture the moments as they happen and connect more seamlessly with the people you love.”

Shaping the Future of Communication

Use up to 30X zoom on the Galaxy S20 and S20+, or step-up to the revolutionary folded lenses on the S20 Ultra, which uses AI powered, multi-image processing to reduce quality loss at high zoom levels so that users can experience Super Resolution Zoom up to 100X with a clearer view ever than before.
  • Single Take, Multiple Possibilities: Single Take lets you stay in the moment, while you capture the moment. Thanks to its AI camera technologies, the Galaxy S20 can capture a number of photos and videos, such as Live focus, cropped, Ultra Wide and more that captures your moment the best.
  • Pro-Grade Filming Capability: The Galaxy S20 offers stunning 8K video shooting, so users can capture their world in true-to-life color and quality. When you are done shooting, stream your video to a Samsung QLED 8K and enjoy its best-in-class viewing experience3 or grab a still from an 8K video and turn it into a high-res photo.

Save The Sparrow – A Unique Environment concept by Jeeya Desai

Surat : The National Book Fair and Horticulture Exhibition organized by Surat Municipal Corporation had arranged different competitions, in which, students from different schools of the city had participated and they also participated in Flower Arrangements and Making of Book Competition as well.

During the event many students displayed their creative and imaginative selves at its best. One student of class eight, of J. H. Ambani School, Ms. Jeeya Desai, lead the activity of Environmental Protection.

This student had prepared a bouquet of flowers within which she had accommodated A Sparrow’s Nest. About this unique bouquet, she had to say “that, usually, when we meet people, we exchange or gift bouquets of flower, but, ironically, these flowers dry out and fall, and go to waste. However, if we include A Sparrow’s Nest in it, later on we can keep it at the window or balcony of our homes, to provide an abode for Sparrows.

It is to be noted, that sparrows are vanishing at a rapid pace from our cities, in this scenario, if we adopt the above idea or find other ideas, which will stop the migration of our neighbourhood friendly bird, the sparrow and could also protect the environment in different ways. We see the glimpses of “Clean India – Green India” Campaign, in the activity of a young student of J. H. Ambani School, in it, it was also mentioned, “By The Blessing Of Nature”, which was noted and well kept by all in the exhibition.

SURAT: To further the motto of expanding its network to various parts of the country to help thousands of students realise their dreams of becoming doctors and IITians, Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL), the national leader in test preparation services, today reached the milestone of a double century by inaugurating its Third Centre in the Diamond and Textile Centre of Gujarat, the City of Surat. With this AESL has achieved yet another feat that is unparalleled in the test preparation sector in the country.

Located in Opera Business Hub on Lajamni Chowk in Mota Varachha, the new centre is the third in the city after the first one was launched in Majura Gate in 2013 and the second in Adajan in 2015. The New Centre will cater to students preparing and aspiring for Medical Entrance Examinations as well as offer Foundation-level courses that help them prepare for various types of competitive examinations e.g. Olympiads etc. apart from strengthening their basics. Other cities in Gujarat where Aakash Institute is located are Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Vadodara and Vapi.

The new Centre was inaugurated by Dr. H. R. Rao, Regional Director, Aakash Educational Services Limited (AESL). Also present on the occasion were senior company officials, faculty and dignitaries from the city.

Speaking at the inauguration, Dr. Rao said: “We are delighted that AESL has achieved this milestone from the city of Surat.

Today, Aakash is widely known for providing quality education throughout the country through its pan-India network of Centres. The quality of its educational content and the effectiveness of its teaching methodologies, as evidenced by the number of selections of its students, have made Aakash one of the top choices for students intending to qualify for undergraduate medical and engineering courses.”

Students who wish to take admission in Aakash can either take Direct Admission (DA), the Admission cum Scholarship Test (ACST) or register for ANTHE (Aakash National Talent Hunt Exam).
