Every day, more and more organizations are using various cloud models to drive their digital transformation. The recent Dell Technologies Global Data Protection Index 2020 Snapshot shows most actually prefer a cloud-based deployment environment, be it private, public or hybrid, for their newer applications. Dell has responded to that in some exciting ways.While the benefits of a multi-cloud approach are growing, clouds are not immune to costly disruptive events including down time, data loss and cyber-attacks. According to the 2020 Snapshot, down time and data loss were up last year to 82 percent, from 76 percent in 2018.The 2020 Snapshot also showed that eight out of ten respondents believe their current data protection technologies won’t meet future business challenges. More than half are struggling to find data protection solutions for cloud-native applications, SaaS applications and containers.So, many are turning to Dell Technologies to not only safeguard their data across public, private and hybrid clouds, but to leverage clouds for added business benefits. More than 1,000 customers have chosen to trust Dell to protect their data in the cloud – covering more than 2.7 exabytes of data! ¹Data Protection is an essential part of our Dell Technology Cloud solution that delivers consistent infrastructure, operations and services across all of your clouds. Whether you are well into your cloud journey or just beginning, Dell Technologies’ Data Protection portfolio provides options for a wide range of deployment models and use cases. One clear trend we are seeing is organizations choosing integrated appliances that combine data protection software and storage in a single solution. In fact, according to IDC, these are the fastest-growing segment of the Purpose-Built Backup Appliance (PBBA) market. ²Last year, we introduced PowerProtect X400, a scale-out integrated appliance driven by PowerProtect Data Manager software, our next-generation data management platform. These two products support modern workloads and benefit from our partnership with VMware, delivering data protection for VMware Cloud on AWS and for VMware Cloud on Dell EMC. PowerProtect Data Manager is one of the first and only enterprise protection solutions for VMs, applications and Kubernetes for the discovery, protection and management of production workloads in Kubernetes environments. And PowerProtect X400 recently added support for long-term retention to AWS and expanded capacity to 1 petabyte (PB). All of this helps us to extend our lead in data protection.Dell EMC’s Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA) momentum is increasing, delivering powerful data protection for mission-critical apps and support for a broad cloud ecosystem with long-term retention and cloud disaster recovery. It continues to gain traction across small, mid-size and enterprise organizations, with revenue growing by over 90% YOY in 2019 according to IDC. ²No matter where customers are deploying apps or how they are consuming them, they need to have the same confidence that their data is protected. Be confident. Get your cloud on with proven and modern data protection from Dell Technologies.1 Based on Dell analysis, February 20202 2019Q4 Quarterly Purpose-Built Backup Appliance Tracker
For some students at Saint Mary’s, class time on Thursday is now spent in a different type of environment – teaching guests at the South Bend Center for the Homeless. “Public Communication,” holds classes for the guests at the Center and teaches them the basics of communication studies. After only three weeks spent at the Center, some students are already feeling a sense of learning for themselves and their guests. Senior Tara Fulton said has already noticed how working at the Center is a wonderful experience for herself and her group members. “This Thursday will be our fourth class visit, and we are very excited to continue on with the process. The veterans that come to our class every week are very enthusiastic, and always willing to participate,” she said. “I think that the veterans’ participation and enthusiasm has really made us the students as a group feel good about teaching the class. It seems like the veterans truly enjoy the class, and are gaining better communication skills after every class.” Throughout the weekly lessons for the veteran’s group, Fulton and her fellow classmates have been teaching different aspects of communication to their guests. “My group hopes to gain more personal experience with our communication skills, and insight into how others communicate,” Fulton said. “We want to help our guests communicate better, where they can take what we teach in our class to the outside world and use that information to better their communication interactions. “Two main aspects our group will focus on with the veterans are how to control their humor and sarcasm better when communicating with people.” Overall, Fulton said she is happy to be enrolled in the class and looks forward to continuing the work her group has begun at the Center for the Homeless. “The veterans are a great group of guys, and are very eager to learn, which makes my group and I happy and willing to go teach every week,” she said. Senior Caroline Gallagher is part of a group that teaches the children at the Center. “Our group is called Club P.S., which includes the kids,” Gallagher said. “Although our class has only been at the Center for three weeks, we have had such a great experience so far.” Before arriving, Gallagher said the group was a bit nervous, as they did not know what to expect from the experience. “After the first day with the kids, any sense of being nervous was completely gone,” she said. “The children are extremely vibrant and excited to learn new things- plus they love having older kids to hang out with for an hour every week.” Gallagher said, she believes her group has already gained a lot from being at the Center for the Homeless. Although they have faced a few hurdles, Gallagher said the group is thrilled to be working with Club P.S. “The biggest thing that I hope our students gain from my group being at the Center for the Homeless is how important communication is in every aspect of every person’s life,” Gallagher said. “I hope that the curriculum we teach them is something that they will remember for the rest of their lives, and will help them to be successful in communicating with the different people that they will meet throughout their lives.” While Gallagher and her group know teaching children is a lot of responsibility, she said they feel capable of providing the necessary tools for their students to thrive. “As a group, I feel we are capable of doing exactly what we have to in order for the students to get the most out of their Thursday afternoons with us,” Gallagher said. “While the semester progresses, I am excited to see where our lessons take us with the kids.” Contact Jillian Barwick at [email protected]
Wood Mackenzie sees peak oil coming in 20 years FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Financial Times ($):One of the world’s most influential oil consultancies has forecast that global oil demand will peak within 20 years, as a “tectonic” shift in the transport sector towards electric cars and autonomous vehicles gathers pace. Wood Mackenzie, which works closely with companies across the energy industry, said in its long-term outlook that it sees oil consumption topping out around 2036, an earlier date than many energy majors use in their scenario planning. The prediction illustrates how projections of peak oil demand, once confined to the fringes of energy planning, have become accepted within the mainstream, and are already shaping how the world’s biggest oil and gas companies will invest in the future. “A lot of our clients recognise that peak demand is real,” said Ed Rawle, Wood Mackenzie’s head of crude oil research. “It’s just a question of when it arrives.” Wood Mackenzie’s long-term energy outlook, which was given to clients in May but not yet reported on, comes as many of the world’s oil majors have begun to embrace the “ energy transition”, preparing for a future when oil demand is no longer steadily rising.

Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionElderly need help getting to dentistsThe toughest task for our elderly folks is having a bedridden spouse and find she urgently needs dental treatment. With someone disabled who cannot stand or walk on her own, it’s very difficult to find a dental clinic or dentist who will take her, plus the transportation needed to take her.I searched online for dental clinics and dentists who were taking new patients and I came up empty. I searched for an ambulance or cab company. One ambulance would charge me $2,300 for the one-mile trip to St. Clare’s dental clinic. St. Clare’s’ lead dentist already agreed to accept my wife. None of the van or cab companies would take her. This was a dental appointment, not an emergency.Finally my insurer agreed to pay for an ambulance, declaring it an emergency. Mohawk Ambulance transported her to the clinic. Staff did a full-mouth x-ray exam and told me several teeth needed work. They gave me a list of oral surgeons to pull her teeth but didn’t expect to do that themselves.I think my wife could endure having a tooth pulled, but not having them drilled. Only if the pain got so great would we justify taking her. The clinic was helpful, but there isn’t any satisfactory solution when people who can’t walk need this care. Roy E.

Trump more or less trying to bribe Ukraine in order to dig up dirt on Joe Biden for his own personal reasons was so wrong on many levels. And to try and say after the fact that it was about corruption and election interference in 2016? Again, let’s cover for Russia.Our intelligence agencies have all concluded it was Russia.

They are locked up in a coded server that only very few have access to.Never has a president had a meeting with an adversarial head of government without a cabinet member present. In Helsinki, they met for over an hour, with only an interpreter. And to date, there’s no transcript to be found. Where’s the interpreter?Stop bringing up Hillary and Obama.

McCOOL JUNCTION, Neb. – Junction Motor Speedway sports four IMCA divisions on Saturday race programs beginning this season.Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Mach-1 Sport Compacts will run weekly at McCool Junction, formerly NASCAR sanctioned. “There are a lot of local IMCA cars that we’ll be able to share with other tracks,” explained promoter Delmar Friesen, citing sanctioned tracks in the area that run on Thursday, Friday and Sunday nights. “We didn’t have anyone around to share with when we were NASCAR. Probably 90 percent of the cars around here are IMCA.” A test and tune session is now scheduled for April 2. The tentative IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season at Junction Motor Speedway runs from April 30 through Sept. 3. All four IMCA divisions take the place of classes that ran in 2015 at McCool Junction and will be on the card for a mid-August special.“Most of the responses we’ve gotten (regarding the change in sanction) have been positive,” Friesen said. “The drivers are looking forward to having another track where they can race for IMCA points.” Weekly Modified points earned at Junction Motor Speedway figure in IMCA’s Jet Racing Central Region. Hobby Stock points count in the Big Daddy Race Cars Northern Region. A foot of dirt was added all the way around the 3/8-mile oval two years ago; Junction Motor Speedway opened in 2004.
