Viketouzo Miachieo, a 22-year-old Angami Naga, displays ammunition from World War II that he found a few years ago while cleaning the area beside his house in Kohima village. Miachieo fitted the RG 1942 20mm cartridge, left, with a wooden carving on top to make it look like an unused shell. Between April and June 1944, Japanese and British forces fought across Kohima in a battle that has been chosen as Britain's greatest battle by the National Army Museum, along with their battle in neighboring Imphal region. YIRMIYAN ARTHUR/AP PHOTO Kuozeu Vizo remembers finding the sight of her village, burned and blackened during World War II, as spellbinding as a rice field, golden and ripe for harves...

The camera turned out to be slightly better than the K30 ProBy Paco Zheng -Sep 1, 2020  Facebook Twitter Linkedin ReddIt Xiaomi’s flagships have always been popular for its incredible cost to performance ratio. However, if you are familiar with Xiaomi’s strategy, you should also know that the company usually cuts down some features to save costs.  Take the Redmi K30 Pro for example. The phone skipped the most popular feature of 2020 — a high refresh-rate display. But now, they have fixed this drawback on the new Redmi K30 Ultra with a 120Hz refresh-rate display. However, as I mentioned above, in order to keep the price to acceptable levels, the Redmi K30 Ultra comes with the MTK Dimensity 1000 Plus instea...
