At the time, Lundmark’s predecessor Rajeev Suri noted the vendor would remain a player in the market through existing 4G deals, while also reportedly eyeing a win involving China Unicom’s next-generation core.The Finnish vendor’s Chinese R&D unit builds 700MHz 5G equipment for the market.During the call, Lundmark also highlighted progress in improving the competitiveness of Nokia’s mobile product portfolio and operating margins.Since taking the helm in August 2020, the CEO has implemented a sweeping restructuring plan aimed at resetting its cost base and increasing 5G R&D investment.

Each restricted PSV O-Licence is under review as the subject of main occupation is a key issue, according to Deputy Traffic Commissioner (DTC) Gillian Elkin. She added that a lot of restricted licence holders had failed to notify a material change in respect of main occupation, either inadvertently or deliberately.The DTC’s comments came when freelance coach driver Graeme Hartshorn, trading as Hartshorn, of Durham, and with a one-vehicle restricted O-Licence, had been called before her at a Leeds Public Inquiry (PI). He had requested a PI following two proposals to revoke the licence because of concern over main occupation.Mr Hartshorn said that his main occupation was that of a freelance coach driver for two operators and as a driver trainer.He ran a 16-seat minibus as a sideline, advertising day trips in a local magazine. He had only brought records of what he had done for the last three months and not 12 months as those documents were with his accountant.Mr Hartshorn was self employed as he wanted to be his own boss. He analysed his own analogue tachograph charts. He was thinking of investing in a digital tachograph reader and in upgrading his vehicle as it was “getting long in the tooth.”If things did not work out, he would like to go for a national O-Licence. He had someone who would stand in for him as Transport Manager for four to five hours per week.Holding that Mr Hartshorn met the main occupation criteria, the DTC said that she was satisfied that the three months’ records produced showed that he had done a substantial amount of work for the coach and driver training companies.She was satisfied that there was a clear gap between that work and the minibus work, and that the former far exceeded the latter.

The Serbian legend continues to show strength of spirit and to impress.

(18+)Mihailov was diagnosed with leukemia in June last year, undergoing chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. At the end of 2019, the former football player of Sampdoria, Lazio and Inter managed to achieve his biggest victory and fight the disease that Stilian Petrov went through years ago.
The Travellers Rest Golf GroupMonday this week combined Easter Monday with April Fools Day, so I wasn’t sure whether my golf game was going to experience a resurrection or whether I was going to feel like an idiot as usual. After playing a round at a breezy Bangpakong I must admit it was more like the latter than the former, although I did finish better than I started so perhaps it was a little of both. It was a swift return to Bangpakong for the TRGG as it was less than two weeks since our previous visit and the windy conditions kept the scores down. Instead of the usual 40+ points required to take first place it was a more modest 37pts posted by Mike Ensor (10), which was good enough to take the prize money. Neil Allison (19) was a close second on 36pts and Mike Rushant (11) slipped into third spot with 34.Mike Ensor.On Tuesday 2nd April, Greenwood A and B courses played host to our group and the slightly kinder conditions led to some better scoring, or maybe there were some better golfers in the field, I am not sure. Anyway, Dave Nicholson (14) showed everybody the way home with an impressive 39pts. His playing partner Max Scott (4) came second on 37pts, winning on count back from Jim Cleaver (13).Thursday 4th April saw the TRGG make its weekly visit to Phoenix to take on Mountain and Lakes. Craig Hitchens (12), shooting 38pts, was too good for the rest and took the winner’s berth. Phil Taylor (17), who had had a bit of a nightmare at Bangpakong on Monday, showed one and all that it had been a temporary blip by returning to form with 36pts to take second and Mod Chaviraksa (11) showed you can’t keep a good woman down for long taking by third place with 35.On Friday 5th April it was the turn of Bangpra to provide the stalwarts of the TRGG with an examination of their golfing skills. Mike Rushant (11) passed with a distinction by finishing first with 38pts. Larry Simpson (12) acquitted himself well enough to take a second with 35 and Neil Bramley (9) flew back into Thailand to post a good third place finish with 34pts.Good luck to all you golfers for the coming week!Dave Nicholson (left) with Max Scott.
