Obituary: Joyce Reiss Bradberry Jan. 24, 2020

first_imgJOYCE REISS BRADBERRY Jan. 24, 2020 Joyce Reiss Bradberry had a philosophy that life should be enjoyed while still being constructive, worthwhile and filled with faith.  The fourth daughter of George and Bertha Hagans, Joyce was born in Denison, Texas and it was in these formative years, surrounded by love and joy, that she established her faith in God and developed a service-oriented life.  Joyce died on January 24, 2020 at the age of 90 years, 1 month and 6 days.In her early teens she spent time in California where her father was stationed during World War II. Her father was a Master Mason and Joyce became a Job’s Daughter. Upon returning to Texas, Joyce became a member of Eastern Star in 1953. Thus, began a life-time of service and fellowship through Eastern Star Chapters in Oklahoma and New Mexico.Joyce came to New Mexico in 1961, joining her sister Mary Rambo in Silver City. She quickly affiliated with the Tyrone, NM chapter of Eastern Star.  She met and married Levi Bradberry who preceded her in death in 1996. She lived in Bayard, New Mexico for about 50 years.Joyce was involved in community affairs. She served as secretary of the Bayard Chamber of Commerce and was an active member of the Grant County Chamber of Commerce. She served as president of the Silver City Business and Professional Women’s Club, which helped establish the Bayard Public Library, and was Charter President of the Pilot Club of Grant County, a women’s service organization.She worked for Kennecott Corporation in the Public Relations Department in communications and publications. She developed the ability to prepare and deliver talks or speeches. Many times, she would forget the exact word or phrase, and rather than acknowledging her failure to remember the exact words, she would re-write the talk on the fly. Rarely at a loss for words, she could always handle any situation with dignity and grace.One of Joyce’s crowning accomplishments was her election to Worthy Grand Matron for the State of New Mexico in 1980. During her term she visited all 59 Chapters, traveling from corner to corner of New Mexico. She encouraged others to create joy and understanding, to be kind and to promote love of God, Country and the Order of Eastern Star.Joyce loved hummingbirds.  She had numerous feeders for them in the summers, a hobby that continues in several of her family’s homes. The hummingbird was her Symbol during her term as Worthy Grand Matron. As she said, “The hummingbird is a symbol of intelligent industry,” confirming her philosophy of living a constructive and worthwhile life.Joyce is remembered with love by her two sons, Rick Reiss (Deborah) and Randy Reiss (Patty), four grandchildren, Rikki, Jason, Jessie and Jeremy, and three great-grandchildren, Miller, Dylan and Oden.Joyce’s final resting place will be with her husband, Levi, in Fort Bayard National Cemetery.The family appreciates Sombrillo for the years of care and Los Alamos Visiting Nurse Service for Hospice assistance. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to Los Alamos Retirement Community (Sombrillo), Los Alamos Visiting Nurse Service or to the Eastern Star Chapter of your choice. The family of Joyce Reiss Bradberry has entrusted their loved one to DeVargas Funeral Home & Crematory of the Española Valley. 505-747-7477 – www.devargasfuneral.comlast_img read more

Botswana begins rationing fuel amid shortage

first_imgRelated Botswana will begin rationing fuel in a bid to ease a crippling shortage that has seen some consumers rush to stock up, President Mokgweetsi Masisi announced.Long queues formed in recent weeks at fuel stations in Botswana’s capital, Gaborone, as some ran dry. The shortages have disrupted businesses and threaten to exacerbate the woes of an economy already expected to shrink 13% this year.Mokgweetsi said in a televised address that sales will be limited to the value of 250 pula ($21.40) worth of fuel, though the limit would not apply to front-line workers and public transport operators.“We have also started to import fuel through Namibia and Mozambique to complement supplies from South Africa, where there are disruptions in the transportation industry,” he said, adding the government did not want strategic reserves to fall to below five days’ supply, from eight days’ currently.The southern African country, which consumes about 3.3 million litres a day, normally keeps reserves at 12 days’ supply.It has lifted a lockdown imposed to contain the coronavirus but its borders remain closed, with only essential imports allowed and truckers tested for the virus and quarantined before they enter.($1 = 11.6822 pulas) Botswana experiences fuel shortage Pain at the pump as Zimbabwe hikes fuel prices amid shortage Fuel shortage hits Burundilast_img read more

RF Front End Component Market to Remain Stagnant in 2020 Due to COVID-19

first_imgStrategy Analytics has announced that the market for RF front-end components remained flat in 2018 and 2019, and will remain flat in 2020, despite frequent claims by companies and analysts of unbridled growth in RF with 4G and 5G. According to a new report, ‘Power Amp and RF Front End Market Share and Forecast Update’ published by Strategy Analytics, the slow smartphone sales, OEMs resistant to higher bills of material, trade tensions, and an economic slowdown in China will all result in curtailing the growth of RF front-end components used in mobile phones and other cellular user equipment.Market changes in 2018 and 2019 hit Skyworks the hardest, but Qorvo and Broadcom maintained sales of power amplifiers, filters, and other front-end modules overall, while Qualcomm picked up some share with 5G design wins. At the same time, scores of new entrants, most of them in China, took some share, mainly in lower-end phones.With COVID-19, the outlook does not look any better for 2020. In addition to the pandemic, RF component suppliers have to continue to improve performance and develop new products to support higher frequency bands and the higher RF complexity of 5G devices. Growth will revive as 5G mobile devices ramp and production costs of new RF components begin to drop with higher production volumes.Click here to read the full report.last_img read more
