By John Sorce |SHREWSBURY – On Tuesday, Jan. 16, Robert Turner was sworn in as Shrewsbury’s newest police chief at the town’s council meeting.“It was definitely an emotional moment,” Turner said. “I had my dad, who was a police officer in Long Branch, hold the Bible for me. It was very special.”Turner grew up in West Long Branch and attended Shore Regional High School before earning a degree in criminal justice from Monmouth University in 1996. He was hired by the Shrewsbury Police department in December 1998 as a patrolman and has been rising through the ranks with the department ever since, serving as a detective, detective sergeant and lieutenant.“Shrewsbury is a great community,” Turner said. “As far as police work goes, it’s really the best of both worlds because we are a great community that we love to be involved with.” As he enters his 20th year working for the town, he cites the main roads and the various businesses as the things that keep him the busiest.For a smaller community, there is a lot of traffic in Shrewsbury and a lot of people coming in and out of town. Turner does not see that as a negative, but rather as a sign that people want to come to spend time in Shrewsbury.“We have a lot of growth, which is nice,” Turner said. “We have the major roadways. I believe the population in town during the daytime is 84 percent more. We have a lot of traffic, a lot of people coming in and out of our shops, and a lot of those stores are open at night. For a small town, we have a high number of people coming in and out and spend time in our nice town.”Shrewsbury saw a 13 percent decrease in total crime from 2016-2017, and Turner believes visibility is the key. “I think having our guys on the road, even though we are a small department, when people see officers constantly driving up and down the roadway…people are less likely to commit a crime,” Turner said. “When our guys are out there, and they do a great job, they are very visible, and I think that plays a big part.”Interestingly, the Shrewsbury Police Department does not provide coverage in Shrewsbury Township, which Turner said is monitored by the New Jersey State Police.Shrewsbury Township students don’t attend Shrewsbury schools, either. “Even though we share the same name, it’s very separate,” Turner said. “Residents in Shrewsbury Township go to schools in the Tinton Falls school system.”Turner resides in Oceanport with his wife, Mary Alyce, and his three boys who all participate in sports. He coaches them in a few different sports, including lacrosse, which he says was not an option for him growing up. “That was something that wasn’t around back when I was growing up around here,” Turner said. “There was no lacrosse. When my son played his first game in fifth grade, it was the first time I had even seen a lacrosse game. Anything you get to do with your sons is a lot of fun and I will miss it one day when it’s all done.”Shrewsbury Mayor Don Burden has known Turner since he joined the force, and he is pleased to see Turner climb the ranks to claim the top spot. “I think he has the strength and he brings some additional cohesiveness to the squad and the department,” Burden said. “He’s well respected in the community and has been a recipient of several proclamations and awards from various organizations in town, from schools to the department of public works. It’s just a good fit and we’re delighted that we can move an appointment to a chief who has worked through the ranks and knows the community.”This article was first published in the Feb. 8-15, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.
Lorenzo Insigne has impressed for Napoli and Italy 1 The agent of Lorenzo Insigne insists his client is fully focused on succeeding with Napoli, despite interest from Premier League champions Chelsea.The Blues are reported to have put in an offer of £45m for the Italy international, as Antonio Conte sets about reshuffling his squad ahead of the new campaign.However, it seems Insigne will stay put for the time being, after the playmaker’s representative poured cold water on a potential move to Stamford Bridge.Franco della Monica told Radio Kiss Kiss: “I would start by saying the offer reported in The Sun would be low and he has always been in the sights of many clubs.“The priority for Lorenzo, though, is to be wearing the Napoli shirt and be rewarded in an important way by his team.“Now he has both and he is happy as well.”Chelsea transfer news: Lorenzo Insigne and Eden Hazard compared

David Curry Chinese search giant Baidu has disclosed that a “gang” of hackers tried to steal autonomous trade secrets from the company’s internal servers earlier this month.The company is conducting an internal investigation to figure out more about the attackers, but so far has kept tight lipped on details. “It’s very difficult to know who employs them to do that, but we know someone tried to hire an underground market hacker to steal from us,” said Ma Jie, the firm’s head of cybersecurity.See Also: Baidu set to test driverless car in China firstBaidu has tested autonomous vehicles for two years in China and the United States. Unlike Google and Tesla, which have publicized self-driving reports and outfitted cars with semi-autonomous tech, the firm has kept most of its progress secret.It recently ended a partnership with BMW, shortly after the German automaker joined forces with Intel, Mobileye, and Delphi to create a self-driving consortium. Some speculated that this could be Baidu lowering its investment in self-driving, although the company denies that is the case.Hacking in China is becoming a serious worry for major tech firms. Baidu, Tencent, and Alibaba—the big three tech firms in China—have all bulked up on cybersecurity experts in the past year. The trio have also teamed up to counter the growing threat of hackers.

Silver medal winner Vikas Gowda. Photo: PTI.Vikas Gowda won silver in the men’s discus throw final at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon on Tuesday.Gowda’s best throw of 62.58 metres came on the second of his six attempts at the Incheon Asiad Main Stadium.Iran’s Ehsan Hadadi won gold with a best throw of 65.11m while Qatar’s Mohammed Ahmed Dheeb took home the bronze with 61.25m.Hadadi, who was struggling for form this season but a pre-Games favourite, outperformed Gowda with a best throw of 65.11m to clinch the gold and run away with his hat-trict of titles. He has also won gold in 2006 and 2010 Asian Games.Gowda had finished third in 2006 Doha Games.The Iranian Asian record holder with 69.32m, one of the top discus throwers in the world, threw the disc better than Gowda’s 62.58m four times on Tuesday as he had 64.89, 63.77 and 64.47 in his fourth to sixth attempts.Gowda, who had won gold in Glasgow with 63.64m, had three foul throws in his last three attempts as he failed to mount any challenge to his Iranian rival. The Indian has a season’s best of 65.62m while his personal best — also the national record — is 66.28m.It was a case of Gowda hitting the Hadadi hurdle once again as he has done better than the Iranian only once in 17 clashes he had in his career, including Tuesday’s final. The lone instance when Gowda did better than Hadadi was in the Doha leg of the prestigious IAAF Diamond League Meeting in May when the Indian was second while the Iranian was seventh.advertisementGowda had, however, finished eighth and Hadadi third in the New York leg of Diamond League Meetings in June.Meanwhile, Asha Roy failed to qualify in the 200m finals as she finished third in heat number one with a below-par 23.96secs. She has a season’s best of 23.75secs and personal best of 23.59secs.
Realme has so far matched Xiaomi in offering attractive phones with great hardware at affordable prices. The once Oppo sub-brand has found its footing in India and has successfully launched a number of well-received phone between Rs 5,000 to Rs 20,000. This year, the company will mostly launch phones that replace last year’s models. While the Realme 3 Pro (Review) is the successor to the Realme 2 Pro, the Realme C2 is the logical next step after the Realme C1.The Realme C2 is the company most affordable phone right now and it offers a lot of appealing features for its budget pricing of Rs 5,999. The phone touts a dewdrop display, diamond-cut design, Helio P22 chipset, Android Pie and a large 4,000mAh battery, among other things. In our Realme C2 review, we find out whether the phone is a worthy successor to the Realme C1 and worth its entry-level pricing.Realme C2 DesignStarting off with the design, the Realme C2 looks pretty good for its budget pricing. A lot of the appeal comes from the back rather than the front. The rear panel has been changed from glossy on the C1 to a matt-like finish on the C2. It’s a plastic shell with micro patterns on it which feels nice to touch. The diamond-cut design, which has been a popular choice for Realme in the past, makes a comeback here with the pattern looking more pronounced on the Realme C2’s rear panel. The phone is offered in Diamond Blue and Diamond Black colours.advertisement One of the benefits of having a textured matt panel on the back is that it doesn’t attract smudges or scratches, leaving the panel pristine throughout. The panel offers a smooth-often-slippery feel and is mostly clean apart from a camera setup and the Realme logo. There is no fingerprint sensor on the Realme C2, so you will have to rely on face unlock or the pattern/PIN method to unlock the device.The build quality is sturdy and the frame feels rock solid. The power button is placed on the right side while the volume buttons and sim slot are found on the left side of the frame. The buttons have a nice placement and are easy to reach. The card slot can hold two Nano SIM cards and a microSD card. Present on the bottom of the frame is a 3.5mm headphone jack, microUSB port, speaker grille and microphones.Realme C2 DisplayThe sports a 6.1-inch HD+ dewdrop display with thinner bezels compared to its predecessor. The iPhone X-like wide notch on the Realme C1 has been reduced on the Realme C2, offering more screen real estate. The U-curve on the top is flatter, which means it is much less intrusive. There is a fairly thick chin, but that’s expected in this price segment. Talking about the display quality, you will find that the Realme C2 offers great colour reproduction. Colours are deep and pleasant to look at, whether it’s the gradience of the app icons or colour depth in video content. That being said, the Realme C2 has some major display issues as well. It doesn’t offer great sharpness as it’s easy to spot pixelation of texts and jaggedness while watching videos even at 720p. Viewing angles are average and so are the brightness levels, making the display quite dull. You won’t have an issue looking at the display indoors, but you will struggle under bright sunlight.Realme C2 Performance and SoftwarePowering the Realme C2 is an octa-core 2Ghz MediaTek Helio P22 chipset based on a 12nm process. The Realme C1, in comparison, is powered by a 1.8Ghz Snapdragon 450 chipset. With a faster MediaTek processor, the Realme C2 sees a noticeable bump in performance over its predecessor. For a Rs 6,000 phone, I feel most users are going to be satisfied with what they’re going to get.Opening apps for the first time will be slow, but when it comes to switching between them from the background, the Realme C2 does a pretty good job. A quick browsing through the UI was generally a smooth experience. The only other time when you might feel the phone is sluggish is when you’re scrolling through heavy apps. The Realme C2 is offered in two storage option – 2GB + 16GB and 3GB + 32GB.What really impressed me was the Realme C2’s gaming performance. If you thought that Rs 6,000 phones can’t run graphic-intensive games, the Realme C2 will change your mind. I ran PUBG on its default low graphics and it was admirably smooth throughout a 30-minute session. I did not notice a lot of drops in frame rate or sluggishness during gameplay. I completed the game with a Chicken Dinner and with the phone barely getting warm. Similarly, a fast-paced game like Asphalt 9 also works fairly well, although lags are a bit more prominent here. Overall, I feel the Realme C2 holds up well in gaming for its price, especially compared to more expensive phones like the Nokia 3.2.advertisement The Realme C2 is also one of the cheapest phones to run on Android Pie, which is nice to see. However, our review unit was on the March security patch, so it will be interesting to see how consistent the company is with its Android security updates. With ColorOS 6 on top, you get a lot of preloaded apps like Amazon, DailyHunt, NewsPoint, ShareChat, Wynk Music, UC Browser, Webnovel, Opera browser and so on. These can be uninstalled if you want a cleaner-looking interface.There is no denying that ColorOS 6 is still cluttered, but there are some benefits as well. The custom Oppo software comes with some helpful battery saving options to get the most juice out of the device. You also get a feature called Dual Channel Network Acceleration, which intelligently uses Wi-Fi and mobile data concurrently to offer better speeds and a smoother connectivity. It comes in handy especially for apps like PUBG, Facebook and Instagram where you need a fast and reliable connectivity.Face unlock is the only biometric option available to unlock the device, and it is impressively fast. Unlocking the phone is swift and snappy under bright to average lighting. It does tend to slow down in low-light and will refuse to work in darkness, but that’s expected. The speaker grille on the bottom doesn’t deliver a loud sound and the audio quality is average at best. Its placement on the bottom left also means you’re likely to cover it with your palm often while playing games or watching videos in landscape view.Realme C2 CameraAs for the cameras, the budget Realme C2 sports a 13-megapixel primary camera along with a 2-megapixel secondary depth camera. On the front, the Realme C2 gets 5-megapixel AI selfie camera, which remains the same as the Realme C1. The Realme C2 doesn’t come with Nightscape, but it does get Chroma Boost, which bumps up saturation and contrast to offer attractive photos. It also gets slow-mo video support that can record at 80fps at 480p, which doesn’t sound spectacular, but it’s some form of slow-motion nonetheless.With the Realme C2, you can’t expect terrific picture quality, but the phone does the best with what it gets. In daylight settings, the main camera offers some clean and attractive photos with deep and punchy colours, especially with Chroma Boost enabled. They look good enough to post on social media and the shutter speed is fast enough so you don’t capture blurry images. With HDR enabled, the camera can capture some decent high dynamic range photos as well. Overall, I feel the camera does extremely well in daylight for its price.advertisementIMAGE SAMPLESLow-light photos are largely noisy and hazy without Nightscape. You might be able to capture some workable nightlife shots of the city, but don’t expect them to look bright or sharp. Meanwhile, selfies captured using the front camera tend to look over-sharpened at times, but the camera does a decent job when it comes to balancing background exposure.Realme C2 BatteryAnother notable aspect about the Realme C2 is its large 4,000mAh battery. The battery when coupled with a dim display, a low power consuming chipset and optimised battery saving features means the Realme C2 can easily take you through a day and a half on full charge before you find yourself reaching for the charger. On most days, I used the Realme C2 for messaging on WhatsApp, streaming some videos on YouTube, playing a few games for about an hour and browsing through social media apps frequently and was still left with around 30-40 percent battery in the tank. You get a standard 10W charger with the box that will take around 2 hours to charge the device from zero to 100 per cent.Should you buy the Realme C2?The Realme C2 is a solid upgrade over the Realme C1 and it comes with a lot of admirable features for its price of Rs 5,999. You get a dewdrop display, a unique diamond-cut design, a long-lasting battery and a chipset capable of running games like PUBG and Asphalt 9. The Realme C2 largely offers an all-round experience at an entry-level price.There are issues with the Realme C2 as well, but most of them can be overlooked given the pricing. For one thing, the Realme C2 offers an average display panel with poor brightness levels. The software is cluttered and may not age well given the entry-level hardware. The Realme C2 works well as a starter phone or as a secondary device. At this price point, you won’t find a lot of phones that offer what the Realme C2 does, apart from a couple of phones from Xiaomi and Samsung.Realme C2 review7.5/10ProsSolid battery lifeUnique designAndroid PieConsDull displayAverage low-light camera performance

In his first attempt to bring his team back in the waning moments of an NFL game, Washington’s Robert Griffin III had more than the Tampa Bay Bucaneers’ defense to contend with: He was playing on the road, so the crowd was a factor. And then, all of a sudden, the headset in his helmet to communicate with the coaching staff went dead.Not good.And not surprising to the Redskins’ Santana Moss.“Happens every time,” Moss said. “No lie. I’ve been in the league 12 years, I’ve been in plenty of games, and the home team goes, ‘Oh well.’ ” Then he mimicked yanking an imaginary plug out of a wall.Whatever the reason for the technical difficulty, Griffin had to take Moss and the Redskins all the way down the field, and do so with only the single play he ran onto the field with after a touchback stopped the clock with 1:42 to play and the Redskins down 22-21.And he did. Griffin, using arm and legs, methodically moved the Redskins down the field for the game-winning field goal by Billy Cundiff as time expired.Before Tampa Bay’s Connor Barth kicked a field goal to put his team up late in a second half in which the Redskins had scored zero points, backup Rex Grossman turned to Griffin on the Washington sideline and said, “You want them to make this so you can lead the team down the field and win.” Griffin laughed and said, “Yeah, I also want him to miss this field goal.”Above all, Grossman’s position shows just how much the Redskins think of RG III.“Every week,” Grossman said after the game, “the way he handles himself. The way he translates what he learns – it’s extremely impressive. As a whole, that’s the most impressive thing to me. Not the plays he makes, but the total sum of what he’s been doing. It’s the whole [expletive] thing.”
