first_imgBEIJING, China: A day after watching his athlete cross the line ahead of the pack, again confirming his position as the greatest sprinter, manager Ricky Simms has lauded the work put in over the past few months by Usain Bolt and his team, as he labelled the Jamaican superstar as the ultimate champion. Speaking to The Gleaner, Simms said that the athlete had been working around the clock to get himself in the best shape possible ahead of the World Championships, while also noting the efforts of coach Glen Mills, executive manager and best friend Nugent Walker (NJ), and physio Emerald Edwards to get him in top condition before the start of the championships. Bolt, who struggled for form early in the season while American Justin Gatlin was dominating the sport, arrived in Beijing with a cloud of doubt hanging over his head and questions about whether or not he would be able to stop the in-form American and win his ninth gold medal at the World Championships. He, however, showed his authority, beating Gatlin to the line in the 100 metres final on Sunday, stopping the clock at 9.79 seconds, with the American taking second in 9.80 ahead of the 20-year-old pair of Trayvon Bromell (USA) and Canadian Andre De Grasse, who shared the bronze medal. It was another demonstration of Bolt’s ability to face his challenges with conviction and deliver when the stakes are highest. “Usain is Usain. He’s the ultimate champion. He shows up for the big ones, and he’s been working extremely hard for this,” shared Simms. “We’ve all been working very hard over the last month or so – myself, NJ, the coach himself and Eddie, his physio – to try to get him right.” Bolt showed glimpses that he was rediscovering his range when he twice clocked 9.87 in terrible conditions and within one hour at the Sainsbury’s London Anniversary Games, after reports began to seep through that he was almost back to his old self in training. The world, however, wanted to see it on the track, and though it wasn’t vintage Bolt in Sunday night’s massive win, it’s the Bolt that was needed – the one that thrives on competition, as Simms explained. “He was doing well in training, and like he said in London, we all knew that if he executed the race well, he was going to run fast. He improved since London, so we knew he could go faster if he needed to. However, he was race-rusty,” Simms said. “Obviously, the semi-final didn’t go to plan, but it was better he did it in the semi and not the final. But what can you say? He rises for the big challenge. “I think he’s just a supreme competitor. He loves running against strong guys. He took it down a little bit last year, and the media went a little crazy about him being injured and this and that. This year, he didn’t have an injury. It was more of a tightness – like driving your car with the handbrake up – so he was fit right through the year,” said Simms, who also manages other high-profile athletes such as British distance star Mo Farah. “All the other guys were running very well. Justin (Gatlin) was running well, and that made it more interesting for the public, and I’m glad he got it done,” said Simms. Bolt will now focus on defending his 200m title; and will also compete in the 4x100m at these championships. authoritylast_img read more

first_imgVideo editing can cost hours of your time if you don’t use the right specs, but because those specs can also cost you a ton of money, the trade-off is a hard decision to make — and that’s where we come in. A fellow Tom’s Guide forum user recently asked us to find a high-quality video-editing laptop that they could afford on a budget.maloneg6 writes, “I am trying to recommend a laptop to my friend for high-level video editing (maybe even in 4K). From his price range ($1,000-1,500), what I have seen as the best is the Dell XPS 15 4K with i7-7700HQ, GTX 1050 and a 512 GB SSD. Someone from his college recommends a MacBook Pro with i7-4850HQ, but I am not sure what is actually the best to go with.”MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

It’s five years old and will probably drive your friend crazy. And while the Dell XPS 15 you mention is a great choice for video editing, we’re going to stick with some of this year’s models (but feel free to check out our review from last year).Apple 15-Inch MacBook Pro (2018)If you really want a MacBook Pro, then we suggest getting the most recent model. But that’s going to destroy your budget, since we tested it at $4,699 and the starting price is $2,399. Our unit had an Intel Core i9-8950HK CPU, 32GB of RAM, a 2TB SSD and an AMD Radeon Pro 560X GPU with 4GB of VRAM.The latest MacBook Pro was able to transcode a 4K movie to 1080p on the HandBrake benchmark in 10 minutes and 16 seconds. The MacBook Pro also has a vivid, 15.4-inch, 2880 x 1800 panel that hit 117 percent of the sRGB spectrum and had 354 nits of brightness.Dell XPS 15We tested the recent XPS 15 at $1,549 (starting at $999), a configuration that came outfitted with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q GPU with 4GB of VRAM. This machine got through the HandBrake test in 10 minutes and 12 seconds, which makes it both cheaper than the MacBook and faster for video editing.The XPS 15’s 15.6-inch panel we recommend isn’t 4K, but the laptop can be configured with such a display for $2,099. The 1080p panel hit 115 percent of the sRGB gamut and had 371 nits of brightness, while the 4K panel reproduced 164 percent and 447 nits. We couldn’t find our model on Dell’s website anymore, but the company sells a similar version with a beefer 512GB SSD for $1,699, as well as a cheaper one with 8GB of RAM for $1,399.Acer Predator Helios 300 Special EditionIf you’re willing to sacrifice portability (especially due to size and lack of battery life), the Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition is a steal for $1,399. It’s packed with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and a GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM.The Helios 300 was slower than the MacBook Pro and XPS 15 on our 4K video transcoding test, at 10 minutes and 30 seconds, but it’s still well within range of what they got. And this machine’s 15.6-inch panel is pretty solid for the laptop’s price, covering 113 percent of the sRGB color gamut and hitting 312 nits of brightness.Bottom LineGetting a good video-editing laptop on a budget, even one of $1,500, can be tough, but the Helios 300 satisfies most of those needs. If you’re a fan of macOS, then getting your preferred brand is going to cost you some change. And if you want the best display with the fastest video-converting speed, then the XPS 15 is the way to go. We hope that these suggestions helped you and your friend.
