Deshaun Watson is one of the best quarterbacks in the league and just 25 years old, so it’s not exactly a surprise the Houston Texans aren’t interested in trading him even if he would like out.  

“Houston is not only not interested in trading Watson but also not interested in listening to offers for him,” Peter King wrote in his Football Morning in America column. “At least two teams have given offers to Houston and gotten zero feedback. Like, no reaction, no ‘We’ll get back to you.’ Nothing.”

King noted general manager Nick Caserio is “categorically opposed to trading Watson, period.”

There has already been plenty of quarterback movement this offseason, but Watson is the biggest storyline.

He could be the franchise signal-caller for a decade for any team that trades for him, and he led the league with 4,823 passing yards in 2020 while being named to his third straight Pro Bowl. He is also one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL and can hurt defenses both as a runner and by keeping the play alive in the pocket.

The skill set on the field isn’t the question in Houston.

Jayson Jenks, Aaron Reiss and Mike Sando of The Athletic reported Watson was “angry” about the trade that sent DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals prior to the 2020 campaign. The move “represented the first major crack in the relationship between him and the team.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Watson was “furious” with the decision to hire Caserio and was upset he was not involved in the decision-making process even though he was told he would be as the franchise quarterback.

Schefter also reported the Clemson product formally requested a trade.

For now, though, it appears as if the Texans are not interested in fulfilling that request.

Sunday Farmers' Market on the move • Sacramento News & Review

Sunday Farmers’ Market on the move • Sacramento News & Review

February 22, 2021

Visitors to Sacramento’s X Street Farmers’ Market face a longer commute beginning in March as the Sunday staple temporarily moves to the parking lot behind Sears at Arden Fair mall as construction on Highway 50 uproots the weekly event for as long as 10 months.

The last market at the usual location will take place Feb. 28, and the market will take three weeks off to regroup before sprouting at its new spot on March 21. The hours will stay the same: 8 a.m. to noon.

The year-round market hosts as many as 90 vendors in its warmer months, and can draw an average of 400 customers at any one time each Sunday. It’s a staple of many Sacramentans’ Sunday routines. Market coordinator Dan Best hopes to see those customers follow the market to its new temporary home.

“There’s farmers [and customers]  want to see their favorites. It’s become quite a congregation of people and a routine of their lives,” Best says. “It’s part of the fabric of Sacramento County.”

Best concedes that the move to a parking lot far from the city center—with the Sears adjacent to the market’s new home slated to close in April—is not ideal, but the logistics of running a market of that size are significant.

“Safety was our number one concern with the complexity of operating a successful and practical Farmers’ Market in a feasible location, [and it] was becoming impossible. But we’re very happy to have landed and got owners and management over at the Arden Fair have been very supportive,” says Best, who refers to the Sunday market as “a beautiful, healthy monster.”

The complexities of the market move include housing the average of 40 vendors who attend in the slower winter months, landscaping concerns as those dozens of vendor vehicles move in and out of the appointed space weekly and the limited amount of parking within other areas of the city, even if normally metered spots are free on Sundays.

Best said he hopes this construction-necessitated move ends as quickly as possible.

“We want this to be as quick a temporary period as possible because we want to bring it back to its most purposeful habitat location, the reason that we established it in 1980 in the first place.”

China remains largest IC market

China remains largest IC market

China became the largest IC market in the world in 2005 and has continued to grow in size since then. In 2020, China’s IC market increased to US$143.4 billion, a 9% gain from US$131.3 billion in 2019, according to IC Insights.

While China has been the largest consuming country for ICs since 2005, the nation is not necessarily a major producer of ICs now, IC Insights indicated. Of the US$143.4 billion worth of ICs sold in China in 2020, only 15.9% or approximately US$22.7 billion were produced in the country last year.

Of that amount, IC Insights continued, China-headquartered companies produced only US$8.3 billion accounting for only 5.9% of the country’s total IC market last year. Foreign companies with wafer fab operations in China, such as TSMC, SK Hynix, Samsung, UMC, still account for much of China’s IC production.

About 26% or US$37.5 billion of China’s US$143.4 billion IC market last year came from sales of logic chips, IC Insights noted. Logic ICs will remain China’s largest IC product segment through 2025, maintaining a strong CAGR of 10.5% through the forecast period, IC Insights said.

Strong sales of smartphones in China and throughout the world along with an uptick in sales from various computing systems during the virus-plagued year resulted in microprocessors being the second-largest IC product segment in China last year, IC Insights indicated. MPU sales in China, including revenue from application-specific processors, grew 12% in 2020 to US$32.7 billion.

With 19% share, DRAM was the third-largest IC market in China last year, IC Insights said. In 2020, DRAM and NAND flash together accounted for 30% of China’s total IC market. The high level of memory consumption in China also helps fuel the country’s burning desire to create an increasing amount of indigenous production of both DRAM and NAND flash devices.

There is no denying the long-term trend toward increasing IC marketshare in China and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region. China and Asia-Pacific are forecast to increase their combined share of the worldwide IC market from 63.8% in 2020 to 68.1% in 2025, which represents a CAGR of 9.4% over this period, according to IC Insights.
