These renders show what Samsung’s Galaxy S11 might look like

It’s not even 2020 yet and next year’s phones are already leaking. Case in point: today reliable leaker OnLeaks shared a bunch of renders of the Galaxy S11, presumably based on early schematics. While these are not official photos of the devices that have been leaked, OnLeaks’ renders (created in partnership with 91mobiles) have tended to resemble the final product in the past. The most notable change is on the rear, where we see a large, rectangular camera module with five sensors and an LED flash. It kind of looks like a black domino. Three of these should mimic the…

Milos Raonic on why Canada is seeing success in new Davis Cup format

Big servers are having a ball at the Davis Cup Finals. The indoor hard court combined with the fast Dunlop tennis balls have made conditions ideal for hard-hitters.

You think Milos Raonic has a little case of FOMO?

Raonic is in Boston rehabbing his injured back, and he’s been keeping a close eye on his teammates, who on Thursday clinched Canada’s third-ever Davis Cup semifinals appearance.

“It’s exciting,” Raonic said of Tennis Canada’s success in Madrid. “It’s the best it’s ever been. And I think it’s only going to continue to get better.”

Canada has now won eight of its last nine Davis Cup ties played on hard court, and Raonic believes this new tournament format could be advantageous to his team going forward.

“By the sounds of it, at least at this point, (the Finals) are always going to be on hard court which will always help us,” Raonic said. “And playing two out of three on the same day, for us we have a very deep lineup. We have four guys in the top 100 now, Vasek (Pospisil) belongs to be there too.

“There’s a lot of versatility there.”

Oilers’ Klefbom defying common hockey practice as team’s No. 1 defenceman

LAS VEGAS — There are 31 teams in the National Hockey League, but there likely isn’t even 20 of hockey’s most coveted NHL player — the No. 1 defenceman.

Roman Josi, Victor Hedman, Drew Doughty, Shea Weber, Brent Burns, Mark Giordano. Now a John Carlson … soon a Cale Makar and Quinn Hughes.

Buy a jug of beer, get two buddies around the table, and if the three of you can unanimously agree on 20 pure No. 1’s, we’ll buy.

Which brings us to Oscar Klefbom, who has never made anyone’s universal list — even though he has been Edmonton’s No. 1 for some time now. He leads the NHL in time on ice per game (25:56), is ninth among defencemen in points (17), quarterbacks the NHL’s leading powerplay and anchors the league’s second-best penalty-killing unit.

Yet, you might ask 20 NHL general managers if he’s a legit No. 1 and not get a single “Yes.”

“Is that fair?” we asked Klefbom after a practice in Las Vegas.

“For sure, it’s a fair question,” responded the handsome Swede, completely unoffended by the question. “You look at a guy like Drew Doughty — he’s been playing 27 minutes for I don’t know how many years now. He’s been consistent for many, many years. Victor Hedman, plays a lot of minutes, a lot of responsibility for so many years.

“I’m really happy with the way I play right now. But, ask me in five years. Hopefully, if I can keep it up, it’s another discussion (for down the road). Now, …read more



Stanford scoops up downtown Redwood City apartment complex for its employees

Stanford University announced Friday it has scooped up an apartment complex in downtown Redwood City, expanding its growing footprint there.

The university purchased the 175-unit apartment complex at 1 Franklin St. from developer Greystar. The complex, formerly known as Elan Redwood City, has been renamed The Cardinal Apartments. It includes a fitness center, rooftop deck and outdoor courtyard.

“Stanford’s purchase of the apartment complex is part of the university’s efforts to broaden the availability and improve the affordability of its housing options,” says a university blog post.

The university’s choice of Redwood City as an ideal location to house its employees isn’t surprising. Earlier this year, Stanford opened a $568 million Redwood City campus off Highway 101 — its first major expansion outside the main campus in more than 125 years. Adding more than 2,700 employees to the 35-acre campus, the university became the second-largest employer in the city.

The campus, which includes administrative offices, research and development and medical clinic space, did not incorporate any housing.

Then this summer, Stanford Health Care submitted an application to the city to construct a nine-story, 227,000-square-foot medical office building above an underground parking garage, as well as a two-level free-standing parking garage adjacent to its outpatient clinics along Highway 101.

The apartments — 20 studios, 110 one-bedroom units and 45 two-bedroom units — are already available for lease. Staff and postdoctoral students at the university’s Redwood City campus will receive priority over faculty members when applying for a unit, according to the blog post.

The university plans to work with Redwood City to designate 37 of the units as deed-restricted, below-market-rate housing for very-low- and low-income households earning up to 50 and 80 percent, respectively, of the area median income, the blog post said.
