Bring out the cake and candle – 1 year anniversary is here!

first_img Started a Radio show on blogtalkradio – check it out (even on itunes) Had great participation across the board – HW(OEM), SW(ISV), YOU, Intel, etc.. Started a few sub zones that are really helping – microsoft, activation, and our latest SMB Talk. Implemented an ask the experts section, however we used as a single thread and now it’s hard to find past solutions/fixes – (yes this is being fixed) We published over a dozen tools and then didn’t call them free tools and then we pulled one down that folks really cared about (yes it’s almost fixed for those that know what I am referring to) Partnered with Myitforum.com and started using resources/wiki’s for key events (Manage fusion, Microsoft mgmt summit) We started a contest and made it to hard to participate – (we took the feedback and will try something soon that is easier to participate) We haven’t created a points system yet to showcase who’s really answering all the questions and if the answers are good one’s. (reputation system or something of that nature). What does this all mean, we still have more work to do to make this community better. I’m committed to making this an awesome community, focused on you and how to make your life easier with vPro. Keep coming back and spreading the word to friends.I also want to recognize the great community for giving me input on how to make this better over the year and I want to hear more over the next year on what we can do to make this a better community, increased functionality, richer video, tools, etc. If you have input on what you would like to see, what we can improve, what we should stop doing, etc.. please drop me a line by either blogging me back here, or just send me an email – josh@intel.com. Or if you have product input that is always welcome, for example, on features we should have in the ME (manageability engine) or Software to leverage our silicon. So.. what’s next? I can tell you that I have been planning, thinking, waiting for September 22nd for the last 2 month’s, I can’t say much, but I can say you will want to be on the vPro Expert Center that day and check out something very exciting. (if I say any more I’ll get the PR/Mktg teams yelling at me).. I can say that we will have more video’s, more quick start guides and more focus on CIRA (FAst call for help) coming out soon as the HW starts to show up and we can show real life scenario’s with rich detail. We are also going to spend more time focused on how to fast track a few use cases, like Going Green with vPro, Remote Repair, & Patching @ Night. After hearing this discussed the last month I believe the community with see value in the output here. I would also like to give kudos to a # of community peers both inside & outside of Intel that have shared their wisdom, data, approaches and even video editing skills to help me start this community. I think we’ve only just begun and I am personally looking forward to the road ahead. please give me a shout out to tell me what you think of the community..

‘Test tube puppies’ offer hope for endangered species

first_imgIf you think having a child using artificial fertilization is hard, try having a puppy. Dogs’ reproductive systems are so quirky that researchers have been trying—without success—since the 1970s. But now, scientists have used a new set of techniques to give rise to the world’s first “test tube puppies,” a litter of beagles and beagle mixes that can trace their start to eggs and sperm in a petri dish. To bring the new litter into the world, researchers collected mature eggs from the canine equivalent of the fallopian tubes, a trickier prospect than collecting them from ovaries (as is done in humans). Once they had the eggs, the team experimented with different conditions for fertilization and incubation, finally coaxing seven embryos to grow in a surrogate mother hound, they reported yesterday in PLOS ONE. The pups, now 5 months old and thriving with their adoptive human families, could offer hope for endangered species like red wolves and African wild dogs, the researchers write. Dog in vitro fertilization could also be used to study heritable traits and diseases, many of which are shared by both dogs and humans.last_img read more

In a surprise, China failed to advance either of its skaters out of the semifinals. Fan Kexin and Qu Chunyu each got penalized.Veteran Marianne St-Gelais of Canada was ousted in the quarterfinals after being penalized for impeding.American teenager Maame Biney, an Olympic rookie at 18, finished last in her quarterfinal. She had to go up against wily veteran Fan, who along with Russian Sofia Prosvirnova, crowded out Biney as she tried to go for the lead early in the race.“I’m still in that learning process of just trying to get back really quick because I don’t usually get bumped in the start,” Biney said. “I’m usually first or second. I’m going to have to figure out how to get back in the rhythm.”The 500 was Biney’s only individual event of the games and it left her eager for more.“Just for next time, the next four years, I’m going to try and find that rhythm and keep going,” she said.In the men’s 1,000 heats, American John-Henry Krueger advanced to the quarterfinals by winning his heat and avoiding a collision that knocked down two other skaters.His teammate, J.R. Celski, wasn’t so lucky.The three-time Olympian was taken down in a three-man crash and he needed repair work on his right skate. Pavel Sitnikov, the Russian who caused the pileup, was penalized for impeding.That left Celski and two other skaters to compete in the re-start. Celski was in contention early before finishing third, one spot out of advancing to the next round on Saturday.last_img read more

Romelu Lukaku leaks Manchester United speed tests – and he’s definitely not slow!

first_imgImage Courtesy: Getty ImagesAdvertisementOld Trafford’s current top news is about their Belgian superstar Romelu Lukaku- and the speculations about his exit. In the meantime, the forward has revealed an interesting parameter of Solskjaer’s boys: their fastest clocked speeds.Image Courtesy: Getty ImagesThe 26 year old posted a video on his Twitter, showing the maximum speed of United’s players, recorded during their training session on 10th July 2019.Although the original post was removed by Lukaku, courtesy to GiveMeSport, you can watch it below-In case you missed it… Romelu Lukaku leaked Man Utd’s player speed stats to prove he’s not slow 👀(The tweet has since been deleted)#MUFCpic.twitter.com/EQno2cUZrm— GiveMeSport Football (@GMS__Football) August 2, 2019As you can see, the Belgian international, despite facing criticism for not being agile on field, scores second highest at 36.25km/h, almost neck to neck with the full back Diogo Dalot, who tops the chart at 36.43km/h.Strangely, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and the newly arrived Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who are infamous in the Premier League for their rapid abilities, were all clocked below Lukaku.Red Devils’ most talked transfer of this window, Daniel James, who flaunted his blistering pace against Leeds in a friendly back in July, was slotted at 5th with 35.53km/h.Look at the pace and desire of Daniel James to support Marcus Rashford in attack 💨 pic.twitter.com/BeuMHUxjFc— The Man Utd Way (@TheManUtdWay) July 17, 2019At the other end of the list was unfortunately Luke Shaw, the 24 year old who only managed to go as high as 31.03 km/h. However, it should be remembered that the English left back suffered a horrendous injury back in 2018, almost causing him to lose his leg.Lukaku missed the pre season friendlies, and time will tell if the striker is going to land up with Inter, or stay at the Theater of Dreams. Nonetheless, he will be recognized as one of the quickest attackers in recent times.Advertisementlast_img read more

Major Coach Rumored To Be Floating His Name For NFL Jobs

first_imgA general view of the stadium during the NFC Wild Card game between the Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants at Lambeau Field.GREEN BAY, WI – JANUARY 8: A general view of the stadium during the NFC Wild Card game between the Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants at Lambeau Field on January 8, 2017 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. (Photo by Stacy Revere/Getty Images)A major college football head coach is rumored to be floating his name for NFL jobs this offseason.Colin Cowherd mentioned on his radio show this afternoon that Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh could be interested in returning to the NFL.“There’s a rumor about Harbaugh putting himself up for jobs,” Cowherd said.There are Harbaugh-to-the-NFL rumors out there almost every season, so this isn’t surprising, and these reports should always be taken with a grain of salt.Still, ESPN’s Paul Finebaum discussed Harbaugh and the NFL at length on Get Up! this morning:“On the NFL side, there are plenty of whispers out there because of the multitude of jobs that Harbaugh would be on many people’s lists (for). I think he would be a very good NFL coach. He’s already proven that in San Francisco. I don’t think he has anything to gain and a lot to lose at Michigan. Next year, the game (against Ohio State) is in Ann Arbor. If he loses to Ryan Day — I’m not laughing at Ryan Day. Well… Ryan Day hasn’t accomplished anything other than win three games (while Meyer was suspended at the beginning of the 2018 season). The biggest win of his career is over TCU — a lousy TCU team at that.“So that’s a high-wire, high-risk opportunity for Jim Harbaugh to look even worse than he does already. So I don’t know what’s inside Jim Harbaugh’s mind. I don’t think anyone does. I’d love to do a reality series about it. But I think he would very anxiously get out of there.”Finebaum thinks Harbaugh might be frustrated with Michigan’s fan base.“My inclination that he wants to go to the NFL is more based on his frustration at Michigan and I believe a strong frustration by that Michigan fan base. Now listen, this is not Ohio State or Alabama or even Clemson. Michigan has won, I think, half a national championship in 70 years. They act like they’re on a run of 15 in a row. …“Their fans don’t want to admit that he didn’t pan out. So they’re not calling or his head like other fan bases would. But privately I think they’re really fed up with him.”Cris Carter mentioned the possibility, too.”I’m just gonna tell you guys a name: watch out for Jim Harbaugh, because he’s potentially trying to get his way out of Michigan.”— @criscarter80 on possible fit for Packers next head coach pic.twitter.com/9SaEXJ5P7B— First Things First (@FTFonFS1) December 5, 2018Stay tuned.last_img read more

Transpacific Volumes to Soften despite ChinaUS Truce

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Container cargo surge on the eastbound Transpacific route is set to recede in the coming weeks, despite a recent truce between China and the US, according to Alphaliner.The President of the United States, Donald Trump, and President Xi Jinping of China on December 1 agreed to postpone the further 25% tariffs on Chinese imports to the US for 90 days to allow a broader trade agreement between the two countries to be forged.Alphaliner explained that the earlier rush to front-load shipments from China to arrive in the US before January 1, 2018, had resulted in record-high eastbound transpacific container shipments in October, based on the date of arrival in the US.Volumes grew by 12.2% year-on-year to reach 1.46 million TEU and container cargo arrivals in November and December “are expected to come in even stronger.”Vessel movement data shows that, since mid-October, shipping lines deployed no fewer than 22 extra-loaders from China on the transpacific route, Alphaliner said. Further to this, three sailings were significantly up-sized to offer extra capacity.“These moves added some 177,000 TEU of extra capacity to the US trade over the past six weeks, with all of the additional vessels due to arrive before the end of this year. Despite the exceptionally buoyant cargo volumes, signs are already starting to emerge that the resilience will not last,” according to Alphaliner.Carriers already anticipate a drop in bookings, with at least six sailings to be cancelled in December from week 40 onwards. The OCEAN Alliance has already announced the withdrawal of four transpacific sailings, while THE Alliance is to withdraw two sailings.last_img read more

UP Rape victim ends life over police inaction

first_imgBadaun (UP): A 24-year-old gang rape victim allegedly committed suicide in a village under Dataganj police station in the district blaming police for not registering her complaint, officials said on Monday. SHO of Dataganj police station Amrit Lal has been suspended on charges of dereliction of duty, they said. SSP Ashok Kumar Tripathi said since the woman was reportedly raped in Secunderabad in Telangana, the case could not be lodged here. But the woman insisted that the case be lodged in Dataganj PS as she lived in that area and allegedly hanged herself, leaving behind a suicide note blaming the police for not entertaining her demand. Tripathi said the woman was advised by police to file a complaint in Secunderabad as the crime was committed there. In her suicide note, the woman stated she was married two years ago, but was living with her parents as her health deteriorated. Last month, she met a relative at a bus stand who along with two others forcibly took her to Secunderabad, where she was raped.last_img read more

Family of reservist killed during training says hed just graduated university

first_imgCFB SHILO, Man. – The family of a reservist killed during a military training exercise in Manitoba says he’d just graduated from university last month.Cpl. Nolan Caribou’s family has released a statement through the military after the infantryman died while training at Canadian Forces Base Shilo.The statement says Caribou completed a bachelor of arts and sociology at the University of Winnipeg.It says he was very determined despite challenges that he encountered while in the military, and that he did not allow limited resources to discourage him from following through with his commitments.The military hasn’t said how Caribou died — only that it was during an exercise that focused on basic defensive routines, patrolling and raids.It says further details will not be released until the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service completes its review.“Being in the military was one way for Nolan to contribute — a way for him to seek resolution to address the challenge of society’s inability to be peaceful, not just for himself but for everyone,” the statement from the family said Monday.Caribou was an infantryman with the Royal Winnipeg Rifles of the 38 Canadian Brigade Group. He’d served with the unit for five years and had not been deployed operationally as a member of the Canadian Armed Forces.The regiment is based out of Winnipeg’s Minto ArmouriesThe family said Caribou strived to change society’s social barriers.“His focus enabled him to facilitate available resources when required. He was very focused on his job as an infantryman, and Nolan took great pride in being able to do so,” the statement said.The military says the Caribou family is asking for privacy at this difficult time.It’s the third time this year a soldier has been killed during a training accident on a Canadian Forces base.last_img read more

The Latest: EU rejects time limit on Irish backstop

LONDON — The Latest on Britain’s talks to leave the European Union (all times local):9:45 a.m.The European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, is rejecting the possibility of putting a time limit on the “backstop” option for the Irish border, saying it would defeat the purpose.Barnier told Deutschlandfunk radio Thursday ahead of meetings in Berlin with German Chancellor Angela Merkel that the whole point of the backstop was to provide credible insurance for Ireland that there would be no hard border.He also rejected the possibility of a deal on the border being negotiated by London directly with Dublin, saying through a translator: “It’s not just about Ireland. Every item that crosses from Great Britain over the northern border into Ireland is also entering the common market, so it’s not only about Ireland, it’s about Germany, France, Poland — it’s about the whole common market.”___9:05 a.m.The chief executive of Airbus has warned it could move its U.K. operations out of the country in the event there is a departure from the European Union without a deal.Tom Enders issued a sharply worded statement Thursday, flatly warning that Brexit is threatening to destroy a century of development in the United Kingdom, a global leader in aviation. He declared that the country now stands at a precipice.Enders urged the country not to “listen to the Brexiteers’ madness which asserts that, because we have huge plants here, we will not move and we will always be here. They are wrong.”Airbus has more 14,000 employees in Britain with a further roughly 110,000 working in jobs supported by Airbus programs.The Associated Press read more

Canon T2i DSLRs will get 4K video on 1111 for six seconds

first_imgIn 2010, we tended to start to see a lot of DSLRs and digicams gaining the ability to shoot 1080p video… but it doesn’t have to end there. A new 3rd party firmware is set to be released tomorrow that will enable your Canon DSLR to record video at 4K.What’s 4K? It’s basically the next step in HD: it offers 4096×2304 resolution in film or video. Right now, the T2i is maxed out at 1080p, but the new firmware aims to change that, effectively quadrupling the maximum resolution of video shot on that camera.AdChoices广告There’s problems with quadrupling resolution, though, not least of which is storage capability and cache. On the T2i, the max bitrates capable of being captured are 175Mb/s, which means that the card either quickly runs out of room, or the cache quickly overfows.Maybe that’s the reason this new firmware only manages six seconds of recording time, without compression. Either way, if you have a T2i and want 4K but don’t care about the length, Saturday ought to be a pretty exciting day.Read more at Crunchgearlast_img read more

Garda sergeants and inspectors accuse Government of spreading misinformation

first_img Image: Eamonn Farrell Short URL Share91 Tweet Email Oct 31st 2016, 8:05 AM Garda sergeants and inspectors accuse Government of spreading misinformation The Government is expected to being a proposal document to talks with GRA when the two sides meet later today. 64 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3055227 By Cormac Fitzgerald Image: Eamonn Farrell THE ASSOCIATION OF Garda Sergeants and Inspectors has accused the Government of circulating misinformation into the public.In a statement last night, AGSI president Antoinette Cunningham said there had been “incorrect media reports” circulating yesterday to do with the organisation’s ability to access industrial relations machinery.Talks went on until the early hours of this morning between AGSI representatives and Government officials at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC), with a view to averting four days of Garda strikes starting on 4 November.It is believed there were no significant breakthroughs that could put a halt to the dispute following the talks.AGSI as well as the rank and file members of the Garda Representative Association (GRA) will go on strike for four days next month unless a dispute around pay is resolved.The Government is expected to being a proposal document to talks with GRA when the two sides meet later today. The GRA central executive committee will meet this afternoon to discuss the proposals.WRCGardaí have been granted access to the WRC on an ad hoc, temporary basis to try to resolve the dispute.It was reported yesterday that Public Expenditure Minister Paschal Donohoe and Government chief whip Regina Doherty had stated that AGSI now had access to the WRC to resolve disputes.However Cunningham said that this was not the case, as the arrangement was only on an ad hoc basis and not permanent.“While we are accessing the WRC at the minute it is on an ad hoc basis to deal with the current negotiations,” said Cunningham in a statement.“However, the substantial issue of long-term access remains to be resolved.We have heard the Minister for Justice committing to providing access to the WRC but AGSI is not aware of any steps having been taken to progress the legislative changes necessary to activate WRC access for our members.Cunningham said it was “wrong that as talks continue misinformation is being circulated by Government Ministers or representatives”.She also said AGSI did not believe the Public Sector Commission on Pay would resolve the matter around Garda pay as it is “not a decision-making body”.Read: ‘We don’t need gardaí to go on strike for us to realise how special they are’Read: Teenager found safe and well after garda appeal 12,006 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Monday 31 Oct 2016, 8:05 AMlast_img read more

Commissioners fail to respond to feewaiver audit

first_imgMum’s the word — at least for now.Clark County commissioners missed Wednesday’s deadline to respond to a scathing audit of a year-and-a-half-old county program that eliminates traffic impact and permit fees on nonresidential development. The program, considered a job-creation measure by Commissioners David Madore and Tom Mielke, has been heavily touted by its supporters as a reason for the turnaround in the local economy.Others, including Auditor Greg Kimsey, have been less complimentary of the program, saying its numbers simply don’t pencil out.News that there would be no response to the audit came as a surprise to Kimsey, who said he was led to believe the commissioners had planned to craft one.“It was my understanding they would respond,” Kimsey said. Last month, he extended the original 10-day deadline to respond to the audit to Nov. 12, so commissioners would have more time. The auditor’s office now plans to release a final version of the audit on Nov. 25 after it’s been reviewed by the county’s Audit Oversight Committee. A letter from Marty Snell — director of the county’s community development department, which oversees the fee-waiver program — will be attached as an appendix to the audit.Throughout the delayed timetable, the county has kept the draft audit under wraps. Although the county initially declined to release the draft audit in October, The Columbian obtained a copy of it last week.last_img read more
