It was our privilege to be part of the community and we thank you for being our loyal guests for the past 37 years,” the post said.“This place is a landmark restaurant. We’ve been here forever and we have a very loyal following, a lot of very sad customers that we’re going to be shutting down,” General Manager Ed Mysolveckhad said then.Beckham was set up in 1978 and has been serving prime rib and other mostly English fare and drinks to happy customers since then. It was originally called Beckham place and was named Beckham Grill in 1999.Recently, Greystar Development acquired the site previously occupied by the Pasadena Athletic Club and Beckham Grill. They plan to build about 200 apartment units with 10,000 square feet of ground floor retail, now in the final stages of design review.As to what happens to the good old English-style pub that is Beckham, the owners, David and Hank Yost, plan to remodel what is currently Shakers Family Restaurant in Glendale with a brand new upscale and trendy concept.“We hope to serve some of the same type of Beckham Grill meals there. It’s a 10-minute drive from here at Central Avenue,” Mysolveck said. They hope to have the bar and 180 seat restaurant remodeled by January.The symbolic English taxicab and red phone booth out front at 25 West Walnut Street have long welcomed visitors into the cozy rooms of the English-style pub. Now, those and all the charming furnishings and memorabilia inside the pub will be up for sale.

Capabilities and performance of Elmer/Ice, a new-generation ice sheet model

first_imgThe Fourth IPCC Assessment Report concluded that ice sheet flow models, in their current state, were unable to provide accurate forecast for the increase of polar ice sheet discharge and the associated contribution to sea level rise. Since then, the glaciological community has undertaken a huge effort to develop and improve a new generation of ice flow models, and as a result a significant number of new ice sheet models have emerged. Among them is the parallel finite-element model Elmer/Ice, based on the open-source multi-physics code Elmer. It was one of the first full-Stokes models used to make projections for the evolution of the whole Greenland ice sheet for the coming two centuries. Originally developed to solve local ice flow problems of high mechanical and physical complexity, Elmer/Ice has today reached the maturity to solve larger-scale problems, earning the status of an ice sheet model. Here, we summarise almost 10 yr of development performed by different groups. Elmer/Ice solves the full-Stokes equations, for isotropic but also anisotropic ice rheology, resolves the grounding line dynamics as a contact problem, and contains various basal friction laws. Derived fields, like the age of the ice, the strain rate or stress, can also be computed. Elmer/Ice includes two recently proposed inverse methods to infer badly known parameters. Elmer is a highly parallelised code thanks to recent developments and the implementation of a block preconditioned solver for the Stokes system. In this paper, all these components are presented in detail, as well as the numerical performance of the Stokes solver and developments planned for the future.last_img read more

Future circulation changes off West Antarctica: Sensitivity of the Amundsen Sea Low to projected anthropogenic forcing

first_imgThe Amundsen Sea Low (ASL) is a major driver of West Antarctic climate variability, with the potential to accelerate the loss of glacial ice. Using the 11 global climate models which most reliably simulate the seasonality in ASL location, we assess the ASL sensitivity to projected future changes using the CMIP5 historical (1951–2000) and representative concentration pathway experiment RCP8.5 (2051–2100). For the first time, we show that the future ASL will likely migrate poleward in summer (December, January, and February) and autumn (March, April, and May), and eastward in autumn and winter (June, July, and August). The autumn-winter changes drive colder southerly winds over the Ross Sea and warmer northerly winds toward the Antarctic Peninsula. This is consistent with recent trends in ERA-Interim reanalysis meridional winds (1979–2014) and reconstructed temperature (1957–2006), suggesting that the impact of anthropogenic forcing on the ASL is likely to play an important role on both past and future patterns of West Antarctic climate variability.last_img read more

News story: Washroom suppliers’ merger faces in-depth investigation

first_imgToday’s decision follows the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) initial Phase 1 investigation, which found that the deal could lead to higher prices and lower quality for businesses.Rentokil, which trades as Initial for washroom services, and Cannon are 2 of the UK’s largest suppliers of washroom products and services. They install and maintain equipment such as air sanitisers, feminine hygiene units, nappy bins and soap dispensers in commercial, industrial and public buildings.The firms did not offer measures to address the CMA’s concerns, and so it has referred the merger for a more in-depth, Phase 2 investigation.A decision on the merger will now be made by a group of independent panel members supported by a case team of CMA staff. The deadline for the final report is 12 December 2018.More information can be found on the Rentokil / Cannon case page.last_img read more

Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Goes Mainstream

first_imgThe Opportunity to Help Customers Adopt HCI for Business-Critical ApplicationsIn an environment of industry-changing innovation and disruptive business models, embracing new technology is more important than ever. Customers need to accelerate the pace of digital business activity, but how can they drive changes in data center infrastructure while also improving IT’s ability to meet business needs?IT transformation can be challenging for organizations as they balance the reality of today’s business needs with tomorrow’s demands. That’s why many customers are looking to hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) to dramatically lower costs, improve customer experience, and increase productivity and efficiency. In fact, according to IDG 85% of IT leaders confirm that their companies are already using or planning to use hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) to achieve the benefits of IT transformation and modernization. [1]The HCI Opportunity for PartnersWhy are companies moving toward HCI and away from traditional server refreshes? Unlike the traditional three-tier model of compute, virtualization and storage, the all-in-one model of HCI enables significant cost savings while also freeing up resources to focus on innovation that further supports the business. According to IDC, 50% of companies are already running or planning to run finance, ERP and other critical applications on HCI.[2] And that means that now is the time for partners to engage with customers to take advantage of the fast-growing, margin-rich HCI opportunity.IT leaders are confident in the ability of hyper-converged infrastructure to not only meet business needs, but to support even its most critical applications. The lower cost of ownership associated with HCI creates opportunities for partners to deliver value-added services that ensure the uptime and protection of these business-critical applications, such as backup, archiving and recovery services.Because customers can start small and scale out with HCI, sales cycles than classic storage – and that means faster time to revenue for partners as well as opportunities to create loyal customer relationships that grow over time. , and the flexible scale-out design of HCI can also minimize misconfiguration and a partner’s cost of delivering support.How Dell EMC Accelerates IT Transformation with HCI Dell EMC VxRail runs even the most demanding applications on HCI, delivering up to . VxRail is helping organizations realize the benefits of HCI today while providing a flexible platform for future technologies with for increased graphics acceleration.Companies are demonstrating real business value from HCI deployments with use cases that include:Cost reduction with server consolidationIncreased flexibility and accelerated deployment of virtual machinesHighly scalable, cost-effective disaster recoveryAdministrative and cost reduction by replacing aging VDI infrastructureLeveraging on-premises infrastructure to support application performance in the cloudThe results and business impact are clear: Hyper-converged infrastructure is now a mainstream technology for the data center. Partners can help IT organizations realize the benefits of simplified infrastructure deployment and management, the ability to leverage cloud services, and the scale needed to support an increasing volume of data and business applications – all while positively impacting the bottom line.Start Talking to Customers About HCI TodayTake advantage of Dell EMC partner resources to learn how to take advantage of the HCI opportunity. View the complete IDC paper to see how hyper-converged infrastructure is delivering value as it goes mainstream. Then engage with customers on social media with content from Dell EMC’s new social media toolkit.
