Thanks to CarePoint

first_imgPATRICIA L. McGEEHAN, Ed. D.Superintendent of Schools To the Editor,As the 2016 – 2017 schoolyear reaches its end, I again extend my most sincere thanks and appreciation to Mr. Mandler, Chief Executive Officer of CarePoint Health, and to Paula Nevoso, President of the CarePoint Health Foundation, for their continued patronage of Bayonne High School and the CarePoint Health Biological Discovery Center within the Academy for Fine Arts and Academics. Since the start of our partnership in 2014, CarePoint Health’s support of the life science research program and BioDome facility at Bayonne High School has led to countless opportunities for the students of the Bayonne Community. For the third year in a row, Academy for Fine Arts and Academics scientific researchers brought recognition and acclaim to Bayonne High School for their achievements at the Hudson County STEM Showcase, with achievements in the Animal Science and Medicine and Health Categories. Most notably, our own freshman Scholar Arsh Banerjee was named winner of the 2017 STEM Showcase, and delegate to the 2017 International Intel Science and Engineering Fair. In addition to achievements at the STEM Showcase, our young researchers put their creativity to work in competitions such as the US Army and New Jersey School Boards Association Sponsored STEAM Tank, the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, the Montclair State University Science Fair, the Young Science Achievers Grant Program, and more.These hard-fought honors, won in very competitive categories, continue a trend of student achievement and recognition in the sciences since the inception of the STEM Track of the Academy for Fine Arts and Academics, and speak volumes about the quality of students we’ve been able to attract to AfA2, as well as the quality of programs and resources we’ve been able to offer our students, thanks to the generous support from CarePoint Health.In another exciting venture, the students that inspired the creation of our successful Young Biologist summer research program, originally funded by CarePoint Health and the CarePoint Health Foundation at its inception in the summer of 2014, are preparing to embark on a scientific research expedition to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. On a two-week tour through some of the world’s most pristine and untouched ecosystems, our Young Biologists will conduct hands-on research in environmental science, biology, bioengineering, and more, while simultaneously gaining invaluable life experiences through international travel. CarePoint Health’s continued generosity toward the Young Biologist program each year has allowed our hardworking teachers and students to continue to dream big and expand upon opportunities for learning. The programs supported by CarePoint Health have an extensive reach outside of Bayonne High School and the STEM Academy. Students throughout the Bayonne School District have been able to visit BioDome and learn from the faculty through summer and weekend based programs. BioDome receives a hugely positive reception at every AfA2 Open House and community night, with the Young Biologists in their blue lab coats eager to share their extensive knowledge with students, parents, and community members.CarePoint Health, through both its monetary gifts from the CarePoint Health Foundation and additional support through offering site visits and lectures with medical professionals, has been a constant friend to the Bayonne Public School District and the students we serve. Catherine Shull-Fernald of Bayonne Medical Center has been instrumental in continuing this valuable partnership between our organizations, as have all the medical professionals and leadership team at Bayonne Medical Center through their partnership with our Young Biologists program.The students in the Bayonne community are worthy of opportunities, support, and resources that prepare them for success in the increasingly competitive 21st century global economy. CarePoint Health recognizes the incredible potential of the young students of our community, and understands that an investment in our students is an investment in the future of Bayonne. I thank CarePoint Health for its continued commitment to the students of Bayonne, and applaud them, Ms. Nevoso, and the entire CarePoint Health leadership for its recognition of the importance of education within our community.last_img read more

Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection – Cloud-Ready, Simpler & More Powerful

first_imgToday, we’re delivering the next evolution in integrated data protection for mid-size and enterprise organizations—with more cloud options and faster restore performance for the Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA). IDPAs deliver the perfect mix of simplicity and power—simply powerful data protection at a lower cost-to-protect, and is guaranteed.Dell EMC IDPA: Simply Powerful Data ProtectionOrganizations need to efficiently protect an ever-increasing amount of data in a growing ecosystem of applications — all while improving time-to-value, reducing overall cost and complexity, and planning for growth. Organizations also need to seamlessly incorporate cloud into data protection strategies.All of this is not easy to accomplish with many of today’s data protection solutions which require multiple products and multiple vendors — resulting in lengthy and time-consuming deployment and complex and expensive management of fragmented data protection environments.IDPAs solve these complex problems. They are integrated, turnkey appliances that reduce the complexity of managing multiple data silos, point solutions, and vendor relationships. IDPAs simplify deployment and management — while delivering powerful, enterprise-class data protection capabilities for mid-size and enterprise organizations at a lower cost-to-protect1 than competing solutions.  They offer a converged solution that offers complete backup, replication, recovery, deduplication, instant access and restore, search & analytics, tight VMware integration — plus, cloud readiness with disaster recovery and long-term retention to the cloud — all in a single appliance.With IDPAs, customers reduce time-to-protect with up to 10X faster deployment2 than traditional solutions. Organizations become more agile with a solution that’s fast — data is protected more efficiently and can be recovered more quickly — and that is reliable.New! Expanded Cloud Ecosystem and Efficient Capacity ManagementNative Cloud Disaster Recovery is now available across the entire IDPA family, enabling customers to cost-effectively failover to the cloud with end-to-end orchestration—for 3 clicks to failover and 2 clicks to failback.  Plus, support for Azure and VMware Cloud on AWS has been added in addition to AWS, which was previously supported.Cloud Tier, which has been natively integrated on all IDPA configurations since the introduction of IDPA, provides long-term retention to the cloud, enabling customers to backup up to 2x the usable capacity of their on-premises IDPA to the public cloud.  The Cloud Tier ecosystem has been expanded to include Google Cloud Platform and Alibaba Cloud – which is in addition to AWS, Microsoft Azure, Dell EMC Virtustream, Dell EMC ECS Cloud, IBM Cloud and CEPH, which were previously supported.In addition, Cloud Tier enables more efficient cloud capacity management for long-term retention with its new, free-space estimator tool. This free utility shows the amount of on-premises IDPA storage that will be saved if data is moved to Cloud Tier for long-term retention, enabling efficient capacity management between on-premises and cloud that helps reduce storage costs.New! Enhanced PerformanceInstant access and restore provides faster restore performance by temporarily running a workload directly from the IDPA as a virtual machine (VM) while it is migrated back to the ESXi cluster instead of waiting for the backed up data to be restored to the cluster before it can be used. In addition to not having to wait for data to be copied before bringing an application back online and restoring business operations, this capability is also ideal for backup validation and test/dev use cases. IDPAs now offer significant improvements to this capability with an enhanced data cache that results in up to four times more inputs/outputs per second (IOPS), providing up to 40,000 IOPS.In addition, IDPAs also provide support for multiple streams for improved recovery of large backup files when compared to single stream restores and improved network utilization. The result is significantly faster restores from an IDPA to production storage.Guaranteed.Finally, we stand by our product and claims. IDPAs are guaranteed under our Future Proof Loyalty Program—featuring a guarantee of data protection deduplication up to 55:1. This is on top of the 3-year satisfaction guarantee, flexible cloud-enabled consumption, hardware investment protection and predictable support pricing that, in total, provide for additional peace of mind and investment protection for future technology changes.See what our customers have to saySecurity Service Federal Credit Union (SSFCU) leverages Dell EMC’s IDPA to ensure they are compliant with new rules and regulationsSSFCU grew from a $25mm organization to the largest credit union in Texas, and one of the largest in the nation, with $9.5B in deposits and more than 750,000 members. As SSFCU approaches the $10B mark, they will be under even tighter scrutiny from regulators. Therefore, Dell EMC’s IDPA is critical to their operations. With the IDPA, implementation was quick, and backups ran almost immediately. Managing IDPAs was simple and took much less time than previous competitive solutions, thus freeing up their IT staff’s time. SSFCU was able to consolidate all backup workloads into an integrated platform with a single pane of glass. SSFCU achieves continuous account access, 100 percent faster backups of disparate databases and 60:1 deduplication using the IDPA. SSFCU’s use of IDPA gives them peace of mind knowing they can have their business up and running in just a few minutes in case of an emergency.“Our long-standing relationship with Dell EMC has resulted in numerous successes for our business. We’re experiencing cost savings, greater efficiency and faster backup and recovery times with Dell EMC IDPA and Data Domain,” said John McFall Senior Vice President, Enterprise Technology Group, Security Service Federal Credit Union. “These results combined with the fact that our data is safe and secure allows me to sleep well at night.”Melanson Heath wins with Dell EMC data protectionMelanson Heath is a full-service accounting firm based in New England. Their previous backup solution was unreliable, time consuming, and hard to manage. Switching to the IDPA DP4400 was an easy decision for Melanson Heath. Installation was completed in less than a day compared to months with their previous solution. Management was a breeze with the IDPA DP4400 because of its single point of management. In addition, the IDPA DP4400 came pre-installed with all the correct hardware and software, saving Melanson Heath thousands of dollars on consultants. Finally, the IDPA DP4400 has offered granular insight into Melanson Heath’s backups, ensuring a successful end-to-end solution. Melanson Heath saved time, money, and most importantly now has a smoothly running backup solution, so they can focus on their core business.“The IDPA DP4400 is a great product because it’s all in one. It’s highly scalable so you know that you’ve got great expansion capabilities. Because it’s Dell EMC, it’s ready to go and I can trust that I don’t have to do a lot of research and vetting to make sure it’s going to work for me. That’s peace of mind.” – Brian Linden, IT Director, Melanson HeathLearn more about IDPAsIDPAs are simply powerful, at a lower cost-to-protect.

Trends 2010

first_imgRecent industry trend reports say Americans are shifting their focus from the boardroom to the backyard. Here are seven gardening trends Georgians might expect in 2010. Main Street is in; Wall Street is out. The can-do spirit empowered by connectivity to neighbors and communities is fueling a renewed appreciation for our land.Edible gardens are in; lawns are out. Growing your own groceries is a hotter-than-ever trend. Front lawns will be transformed into rain gardens and landscape showcases using a variety of plant material and the latest multi-purpose turf varieties.Slow gardening is in; instant gratification is out. With the rising demand for locally grown and organically grown food, environmental horticulture and energy efficient products, people are gardening for the greater good. Sales for seed and food preservation equipment have increased nearly 50 percent.Mindful is in; bling is out. According to the National Marketing Institute, four out of five people say they’re still buying green products and services, which sometimes cost more, even in the thralls of a recession. More than two-thirds say they will select green over traditional, if it works for them.Eco-boosting is in; chemical dependent gardens are out. Green is the new black as consumers seek products that work with nature, not against it.Multitasking is in; single-purpose gardening is out. Rain barrels and rain gardens continue to remain popular as people seek ways to conserve water and reuse and recycle their resources.Perennials and shrubs are in; divas are out. Sustainable landscapes, water conservation, perennials and small edible shrubs are gaining popularity. Gardening with native plants attracts needed pollinators and birds critical for the balance of nature. Consumers are looking for plants that are easy-care, have great color (shock and awe) and are pest- and drought-tolerant.Georgia growers and wholesalers of floriculture and nursery crops have always been quick to respond to the changing marketplace. If these forecast trends prove true, consumers will find the right plants for the right place at the right time, and probably at the right price.last_img read more

Gold slams Olympics organisers

first_imgWest Ham co-owner David Gold has accused the London 2012 chiefs who originally excluded football from the Olympic Stadium of “arrogance”. He went on: “A child would know that the main issue after building the stadium for the Olympics was what was going to happen in the future. “Go back over 24 years, you’ve got six stadiums and five of them are obsolete. What were they thinking?” The conversion work, which will start in October, will cost between £150million and £190m and former sports minister Richard Caborn, who had argued unsuccessfully for football in 2007, branded the deal as “the biggest mistake of the London Olympics”. Caborn told the Press Association: “West Ham are basically getting a stadium costing more than £600million for just £15million and a small amount in annual rent [£2million]. “This is the biggest mistake of the Olympics and lessons should be learned from this.” The London 2012 centrepiece will now be transformed into a 54,000-seater venue and London mayor Boris Johnson defended the cost to the public purse. Johnson, who is also chair of the LLDC, said: “I think when you look at the deal the income, which is going to come in from rent, hospitality and naming rights, will be very, very substantial. That means there will be no more subsidy from the taxpayer to keep the whole thing going.” The Hammers have finally signed a contract for a 99-year lease on the stadium and will move for the start of the 2016/17 season but Gold has turned his ire on the original decision-makers including London 2012 chairman Sebastian Coe, ex-Olympics minister Tessa Jowell and former mayor Ken Livingstone to rule out football in 2007. Gold said: “I’m angry from a taxpayer point of view, not a West Ham point of view. It has impacted on West Ham because the London Legacy Development Corporation has had to negotiate a tougher deal with us. It was arrogance. It wasn’t even foolhardy, it was a form of arrogance.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

United still a big draw – Mata

Juan Mata reckons the world’s biggest stars will still want to come to Manchester United this summer despite the club’s recent troubles. Press Association Even if United do qualify for Europe’s biggest club competition, it is clear that major changes to the squad are still required. Vice chairman Ed Woodward confirmed last week that Moyes would be given substantial backing in the summer transfer window, and Mata is sure the club remain an attractive proposition for the planet’s biggest players despite their current predicament. “I don’t know what will happen in the summer but the manager said the other day at a press conference that he’s going to be signing players,” Mata said in an interview with Canal Plus. “I think this club is at a stage of change, but I can tell you that the best players in the world will always arrive.” The rebuilding process started with the acquisition of Mata for £37.1million in January. And if reports in Portugal are anything to go by, then United have already started scouring the continent for further signings, with Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala said to have been watched extensively of late. Southampton teenager Luke Shaw is also on Moyes’ radar. The club have also been proactive in their push to get Wayne Rooney to sign a new deal. The striker is expected to commit his future to United this week. With 12 matches of the season remaining United find themselves in the unusual position of being way off the pace in the hunt for Champions League qualification. David Moyes’ side sit 11 points adrift of the top four in seventh position, but Mata is optimistic the Scot can still lead United into the Champions League. The form of Rooney and Mata will be key to United’s chances of finishing in the top four, and the Spaniard is confident that he and his team-mates can do it. “The objective is to get to the Champions League spots,” Mata added. “It’s difficult because Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton are playing well and fighting for the top four, but I think we have a team who can do it. “This is Manchester United. When this club wins two, three or four matches in a row, it has a very important mental strength, a winner’s mentality. We are coming and I think we can do it, but we have to win a lot of games first. “This is a club that should always be fighting for the Premier League. I think, in the last 20 or 21 years, they’ve won it 13 times. “The mentality of this club is to win and fight for all the trophies. Unfortunately this year, things haven’t gone so well in the league, but I believe there is still time this season.” While the United board and the club’s fans have remained patient with Moyes despite the team’s sub-par performances, there is a feeling within elements of the football world that the former Everton manager may not be cut out for the job. Mata acknowledges that trying to emulate the trophy-laden era of Sir Alex Ferguson was never going to be easy, though. “Everything Ferguson has accomplished is pretty much unattainable,” United’s club-record signing said. “He has won everything possible to win with this club in the last 20-25 years and it’s tough to maintain such a level of excellence. “But at the end of the day, it was these players that won the league last season and the new manager has arrived knowing what this club is. “I think he has a great relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson and with time everything will get better, the results will get better and we’ll get back to being where this club deserves to be. “My relationship with him is good, friendly and from the off, he seemed to me to be a great person.” read more

Pardew wants to repay fans

first_imgAlan Pardew admitted Newcastle fans deserve better than the club’s dismal run of form this year after the Magpies suffered their sixth consecutive league defeat in a 3-0 loss at Arsenal. Laurent Koscielny and Mesut Ozil both found the net from close range in the first half before Olivier Giroud headed home a third after the break to complete a comfortable victory for the Gunners. The defeat at the Emirates Stadium continues a miserable period for Newcastle, that has seen the club lose 12 of their 17 league matches in 2014. Newcastle’s travelling support were openly critical of Pardew and the club’s owners throughout the game with one chant suggesting they would celebrate if the Magpies boss was sacked. “They’re frustrated,” Pardew said after the match. “We had 2,000 fans here tonight, they made the long, long trip and although we were playing a good team they expect us to win. “They’ve seen us lose again and they’re not happy and I respect that. “All I can do as a manager is make sure I do this job to the best of my ability – we’ve been top 10 all year and this recent run is not something I’m hiding from.” Newcastle are currently ninth in the Barclays Premier League table, two points ahead of Stoke. The Magpies host struggling Cardiff on Saturday and Pardew urged the club’s supporters to help the players maintain their place in the division’s top 10. “We’ve got the best fans in the world,” Pardew said. Press Association “We should have performed better in this run and we have to finish in the top 10. “If Cardiff fans think the game’s important for them, it’s important for our fans we win. “I thought we could have got really harmed tonight at 2-0 but I think on a football basis we’ve come out with our dignity still intact. “It’s very, very important our stadium gives us the same opportunity on Saturday they did at Swansea when it was a good atmosphere for us to play under. “I really hope on Saturday we give them something they deserve because they don’t deserve the recent run we’ve offered up to them.” Newcastle enjoyed an excellent start to the season and were only four points off fourth at the turn of the year. Pardew insists his players have to learn from their collapse and ensure the same does not happen again next season. “In the first half of the campaign people might say we excelled to a degree but I thought we gave good value for money for this football club,” Pardew said. “But in the second half we haven’t and next season we have to make sure we give the fans full value for the investment we have made through the 38 games.” Arsenal’s victory means the Gunners need just one more win from their remaining two matches to guarantee Champions League qualification for a 17th consecutive year. Manager Arsene Wenger admits the Gunners want more than a place in the top four but insists injuries to key players took their toll on the team’s title challenge this season. “We had Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Koscielny all out in the same period – you can miss one or two but four or five will affect any team,” Wenger said. “Finishing in the top four shows the club has been consistent over the years. We want more but at the crucial period of this season we lost many players. “We have shown we have potential but we want more next season.” last_img read more

Refs banned, publicly criticised after World Cup qualifiers

first_img(REUTERS) – Two referees and one linesman have been suspended for three months and publicly criticised by African soccer’s governing body while another has been warned, following their performances in recent World Cup qualifiers.Ghanaian Joseph Lamptey was suspended after the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said he wrongly awarded South Africa a penalty in their 2-1 win over Senegal on November 12.Kenya’s Davies Omweno was also barred for his performance in Tunisia’s 1-0 win over Libya and his assistant Berhe O’Michael of Eritrea was banned after CAF said he had denied Libya a valid goal by waving for offside.CAF’s public shaming of the match officials is highly unusual in international soccer.World governing body FIFA and its European counterpart UEFA, for example, maintain policies of never commenting publicly on the performances of referees and linesmen.CAF, on the other hand, said that Lamptey was guilty of “poor performance” in his match and “awarded a wrong penalty for handball despite the fact that the ball never touched the hand of the player”.Lamptey previously served a six-month ban for wrongly awarding a goal during a CAF Champions League semi-final in 2010.Omweno was also criticised for “poor performance” which CAF said included “wrong positioning and movement, incorrect identification of fouls and failure to administer some disciplinary sanctions”.His assistant O’Michael was barred for “offside decisions including one denying a valid goal by Libya”.last_img read more
