Pakistan’s Finance Minister approved a proposal to auction off the 850MHz band before holding an auction for the 1.8GHz spectrum that was unsold in the 4G sale in 2014.Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, who chaired a high-level telecoms meeting, agreed that an appropriate amount of spectrum needs to be made available to the telecoms sector, the Pakistan Observer reported. No date or quantity was set for the proposed auction.The meeting reviewed the spectrum demand outlook, while also considering the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority’s (PTA) market assessment report prepared by an international consultant.The consultant hired by the telecoms regulator reported in December that the market is not ready for another auction. It found mobile operators are struggling with low margins and aren’t interested in investing in the spectrum within the next 12 months. The operators also complained about high taxes, low return on investments and weak economic growth.The finance ministry pushed PTA to hold the auctions twice last year, but both times the sale was pushed back after all five operators said they would not participate.

What good is it to automate everything if this is what it goes back to, an old piece of technology.”

The track is one of sixteen set to appear on Collins’ forthcoming album, The Power of The One, due out on Friday, October 23rd via Bootzilla Records / Sweetwater Studios.On “Jam On”, Snoop makes himself at home quickly over Bootsy’s spacey bass grooves, rhyming with his swagger patented swagger over the distortion. “Working with Snoop is always like a breath of fresh air,” Collins told Rolling Stone. “He is always connected to the streets and the outer-more sensitive limits of the universe. Like a well-oiled machine, he’s always livin’ the dream.”The Parliament-Funkadelic vibes are alive and strong on the tune thanks to Bootsy and Taz, the 17-year-old guitar phenom, whose nimble riffs are laced in throughout the song alongside backing vocals from Midnight Star’s Belinda Lipscomb.As Niederauer tells Live For Live Music about the session with Collins for “Jam On”, which took place back in January, “It was such an honor to be asked to play on this record. Bootsy is an absolute legend, and to be in the studio with him was an amazing experience I’ll never forget.”Snoop was not in the building for the session, though Bootsy told Rolling Stone it didn’t matter: “Snoop Dogg was so smooth with his thang, he could call in his part on the phone.”Listen to “Jam On” by Bootsy Collins featuring Snoop Dogg and Brandon “Taz” Niederauer below and check out a clip of the forthcoming music video for the song, due out next Friday along with the album’s release.Bootsy Collins ft.

AdChoices广告City have insisted they do not want to sell. But with Freeman adamant he will not sign a contract and wants to move, Johnson has suggested that the player will leave ahead of Tuesday’s transfer deadline. “We wanted him to come along and be involved today but he made it clear he didn’t want to be,” Johnson told City’s website.“He didn’t feel he was mentally right to play and that tells a story in itself. It’s disappointing because you want your best players to be available. “He’s made it clear he wants to move on and that one is still pending so we’ll have to see what happens between now and Tuesday.” Embed from Getty Images

Pin, Porn and Lak.PSC Golf from The Billabong BarWednesday, June 20, Green Valley – StablefordThe sun decided to hide behind a curtain of cloud for most of the first nine holes, accompanied by a strong breeze, making things a little more difficult, but maintaining a most pleasant temperature.The wind had no effect on the ladies scores, however, for half of those playing carded a better than par round. Miss Lynn had 12 pars in her round of 39 points but was not on the podium, which also applied to Miss Nu on 40 points losing on a countback to Miss Lak who had 23 points on the way home for third place. Miss Pin was hoping for better than 41 points when she already had 38 standing on the 16th tee, but a delighted Miss Porn, despite three 1-pointers on her card, could not be caught with 43 points to take the honours. The men could not match these scores for the wind obviously had the better of the encounter. Four players were vying for fourth place on 31 points but Arch Archibald, who had 7 holes for 1 point or less, was the best of this group. Selwyn Wegner stuttered on the front nine with only 15 points but recovered to 34 points and took third place. Auk Engelkes let too many shots get away from him on the back nine and had to settle for second spot on 36 points. Jason Barnett, playing off his 5 handicap, won the day on 37 points.Two ‘2’s going came from Arch Archibald and Keith Allen.Friday, June 22, Burapha – StablefordBurapha A and B loops today and with 5 groups playing we got away on time and were back in the locker room in under 4 hours. The course was in great condition as usual with fast greens and fairways that were great for your second shot.The scoring was not too bad with 35 points by Rick Culley taking third place. In second spot was Gary Ritchie, playing to his 7 handicap with 36 points, but capturing the line honours was Nicky Shaw, a man who didn’t get much sleep the night before but still managed to conjure up 42 points, to take the win.There were five ‘2’s, coming from Jason Barnett, Bob Scott, Gary Ritchie, Rick Culley and Ramsay Smith.
