A World Without Wires

first_imgDell PM30W17 wireless charging mat, codename Nikola, shown with Dell Latitude 12 7000 Series (Model 7285, Aspen) 2-in-1- touch notebook computer.The PC is unstoppableThe computer has experienced a great deal of transition since its inception in the late 1940s. Think back to the original large-scale computer – a huge machine that took up a full floor and needed up to 20 people to operate and maintain. Flash forward to the late 1970s to the birth of the personal computer, which enabled people to utilize computing power at their own desks. From there, desktop PCs evolved to smaller and less cumbersome machines with higher performance, allowing computing to take place faster and professionals to perform more efficiently. These machines then transformed further to the laptop – enabling employees to take work on the road. Power, security and design became top of mind for the industry and PCs continued to advance, evolving as thinner and lighter, integrating ergonomic keyboards for extreme comfort, adding smaller chipsets, and expanding to sleek and versatile form factors with recyclable materials. The evolution of the PC continues at break neck speed. We now see beautiful, nearly bezel-free displays with touch screens, high resolution screens and a variety of device forms including 2-in-1s to fit the different work lifestyles of today’s fast-paced world. We’re excited!It’s time for a changeHowever, there is one constant in each evolution of the PC that has not changed: the power cord. The annoying, tangle-prone, unnecessarily heavy and messy looking tail of every machine out there. Keeping in mind all of the advancements taking place within the computing world – lightweight form factors, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and beyond – plugging our device into a power source continues to be an annoyance. With today’s professionals constantly on the go – eliminating the power cord is the obvious next step to simplify the work experience and fully evolve the PC.Paving the way with the first wireless charging 2-in-1That’s why we’ve addressed this issue and announced the addition of the world’s first wireless charging 2-in-1, the Dell Latitude 7285. This thin, flexible device integrates WiTricity’s magnetic resonance wireless charging technology to deliver power via a wireless charging mat and WiGig wireless dock. Gone are the days of tangling your power cord with your multiple docks, devices and monitors, or trying to cover up the mess of twisting wires. Users can quickly pop in and out of their workspace for an easy charge experience. Not to mention, as the world’s thinnest and lightest Windows-based 2-in-1, professionals are inclined to simply grab the device and go. Taking on this new technology doesn’t mean we’ve compromised in other areas for the Latitude 7285 2-in-1. It is a powerful, secure solution that boasts:7th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processorsIntel® Integrated HD Graphics 615SSD M.2 2230 PCIe/NVMe Class 35: up to 512GB3” 3:2 (2880 x 1920) Touch with Corning® Gorilla Glass® 4, Anti-reflective and Anti-Smudge, 400 nitsControlVault (isolated credential authentication) with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certificationTPM 2.0 (FIPS 140-2 Level 2)Dell Client Command Suite management toolsWhat’s next?Creating a wire-free workspace is the natural progression in the evolution of the modern worker, and as a leader in business computing, we felt the need to take this head-on.

first_img View Comments 2. On the Town—15% Who doesn’t love a man in uniform? Beginning September 20, Jay Armstrong Johnson, Tony Yazbeck and Clyde Alves will don their sailor whites at the Lyric Theatre (formerly the Foxwoods) in the classic musical by Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden and Adolph Green. We here at Broadway.com support the troops, especially when they’re singing “New York, New York.” 1. Side Show—22% As it turns out, we all (well, 29% of you) love them as they are! Erin Davie and Emily Padgett, who starred as conjoined twins Violet and Daisy Hilton in the reimagined production in San Diego and Washington D.C., reprise their performances on the Great White Way beginning October 28. When the show last played Broadway in 1997, the production (starring Alice Ripley and Emily Skinner) had an infamously short run. Here’s hoping that this time, Daisy and Violet stick to their promise and never leave us. At least not for a while. It’s not even Labor Day weekend, but we’re already geared up for another season on the Great White Way. The fall lineup has it all: stars of stage and screen to plenty of fresh faces, straight plays to toe-tapping tuners and new works to returning classics. We asked you which upcoming production you were most excited to see on Broadway this fall. The votes are in, and here’s what you had to say. Make sure you get your tickets soon! 3. It’s Only a Play—10% Tony winners Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane and Stockard Channing. Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham. Emmy winner Megan Mullally. Harry Potter fave Rupert Grint.

Ag Policy Research

first_imgThere is supply and there is demand, but there are also a myriad of other factors that determine the prices that the public pays for commodities at the grocery store and the profits that farmers make.The space between those factors is where Michael Adjemian has built his career.Adjemian, who recently joined the faculty of the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics in the University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, comes to UGA from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Economic Research Service. After working in government for 10 years, he chose to return to the classroom and share his experiences in government with students at UGA.“When I made the decision to return to academia, the agricultural and applied economics department at UGA really stood out,” he said. “It has a great reputation, and I was really impressed with the faculty and students on my visit.”Adjemian’s primary research interests are the economics of commodity markets and international trade, as well as the impact of government agricultural policies.His work in these fields led him to the USDA after he completed his doctoral degree at the University of California, Davis in 2009. During his time in Washington, D.C., he also served on the President’s Council of Economic Advisers.From 2017-2018, he served as a senior economist in the Executive Office of the President. His office in the Eisenhower Building overlooked the White House South Lawn, and he had a front-row seat whenever Marine One landed.In March, Adjemian and his colleagues at the USDA Economic Research Service received the John E. Lee Award for Sustained Excellence in Group Economic Analysis for their work on analyzing the impact of retaliatory tariffs for soybeans, corn and wheat. This award highlights the role collaborative effort plays in the USDA and recognizes contributions to a strong foundation for implementing USDA programs and policies.“In my career, I’ve been fortunate to work alongside some impressive colleagues. I’ve tried to take away as much as I could in every collaboration while developing my own expertise,” Adjemian said. “As a result, I’ve written and published good work in our top field journals and gotten attention for it — both within and outside of government. I am proud to be asked to advise on and share insights about my research areas.”For more information about the CAES Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, visit agecon.uga.edu.last_img read more

Men of a Certain Age

first_imgSomething strange happened to me recently. I got old. It didn’t happen slowly and progressively like I thought it would. It happened practically overnight. Several months ago, I ran my first 50K and felt great doing it. I was without a doubt, in the best shape of my adult life. But a month ago, I hurt myself on a 10-mile run (at such a casual pace, I even stopped for breakfast). Getting hurt is typically no big deal. It happens with such frequency, it’s practically part of my training regimen. But what worries me is that I still haven’t recovered. I can’t even jog to the coffee shop without wincing. This is a sure sign that, without even realizing it, I’ve gotten old.  There’s a hash run this weekend that all my friends are participating in. When they ask me if I’m going to run it, this is what I have to tell them: “I can’t run right now. I’ve got a bad hip.”Seriously. A bad hip. That’s the excuse grandfathers give their grandchildren. “Granddaddy can’t wrestle on the floor, Timmy, because Granddaddy has a bad hip.”Not only has this last month been lame because I can’t run, but I’m worried I might never be able to really run again. What if my hip never heals? What if I need a hip replacement? Should I go ahead and buy a white track suit and start playing Bocce?My only solace is that my friends are getting old too. My climbing partner may not meet me at the gym today because his “back is out.” The guy that really got me hooked on mountain biking can’t do much of anything right now because his planter fasciitis is flaring up. One dude starts icing his knees at the trailhead directly after a run. He doesn’t even crack a beer first. Last year, we were all in our prime. This year, we’re looking into “low impact sports” like water aerobics and trying to start a shuffleboard league.The lesson here? To quote poet Robert Herrick: “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may.”Jesus, I’m quoting 17th century poetry. I really am getting old.last_img read more

Mario Cuomo Remembered as ‘Giant’ in New York

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Lawmakers from across the political spectrum paid tribute Friday to former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, a champion of liberal policies known for his soaring oratory and as a national presidential favorite among Democrats—a prospect that never came to pass. Cuomo died of heart failure Thursday evening, just hours after his son Andrew took his second oath of office as governor of New York, a position he himself had held for three terms between 1983 and 1994. Cuomo’s family was at his side, according to a statement from the governor’s office. He was 82 years old.All across Long Island and New York State, lawmakers who knew him paid tribute to the man who more than once flirted with the idea of running for president but decided to remain in New York. “Mario Cuomo was a giant of New York government and politics,” Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford) said in a statement. “As much as anyone he understood and appreciated the mosaic that was New York. All who knew Mario Cuomo were better for it. My thoughts and prayers are with the Cuomo family. RIP.”“Mario Cuomo rose to the very pinnacle of political power in New York because he believed in his bones in the greatness of this state, the greatness of America and the unique potential of every individual,” Sen. Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, said in a statement. State Senate Co-leader Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) called Cuomo a “legendary figure” whom he always had a deep and “profound” respect for.“With his passing, New York has lost a dedicated leader and committed public servant, and one of the great orators of our time,” Skelos said. “He will be deeply missed.” Long Island’s two county executives also expressed their condolences. “He was a man of passion, principle and dedication who inspired so many New Yorkers to pursue public service, including me,” Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, a Democrat, said in a statement. “We are a better state and a more just nation because of him.” “Mario Cuomo had much to be proud of, but I’m certain, he was most proud to know that his son, Andrew Cuomo, was sworn in for a second term as New York State Governor today,” said Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, a Republican. Before being elected governor, Cuomo was recognized for resolving a low-income and racially charged housing controversy in Forest Hills in 1972. He was appointed Secretary of State of New York three years later and was elected lieutenant governor in 1978. His keynote address at the 1984 Democratic National Convention put him on the map nationally. Andrew Cuomo was sworn in for his second term as governor on Thursday. In his speech, he noted his father’s absence, saying “he is not well enough to come.” “We spent last night with him, changed the tradition a little bit,” Andrew Cuomo continued. “We weren’t in Albany last night; we stayed at my father’s house to ring in the New Year with him. I went through the speech with him. He said it was good, especially for a second-termer. See, my father is a third-termer. But he sends his regards to all of you. He couldn’t be here physically today, my father. But my father is in this room. He is in the heart and mind of every person who is here. He is here and he is here, and his inspiration and his legacy and his experience is what has brought this state to this point. So let’s give him a round of applause.”In honor of his father, Andrew Cuomo on Friday ordered all flags on state government buildings to be flown at half-staff.last_img read more

The Days of Croatian Tourism started on Hvar

first_imgThe Days of Croatian Tourism started today, the largest traditional gathering of tourist workers in Croatia, which is being held this year on October 24 and 25 in Hvar. In addition to the awards and recognitions of the Croatian Tourist Board and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for the best in tourism, the two-day program will bring together over a thousand participants with educational lectures, workshops and round tables of leading domestic and international tourism experts on current topics, such as tourism development. supply and branding, labor issues, sustainable development and many others.  “The growth of over 5 percent, which we achieved this year despite the awakening of competitive markets, speaks of a good tourist year, especially if we take into account that Croatia has not even remotely activated its potential. This requires new investments, new tourism products to extend the season and solve the problem of lack of skilled labor, “Said the Vice President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for Agriculture and Tourism Dragan Kovačević, adding that it should be borne in mind that growth should be sustainable in terms of environment, cultural heritage and infrastructure.”This year, Hvar is celebrating 150 years of organized tourism, so the Days of Croatian Tourism, the largest professional tourism event, is a great opportunity to look back on all previous successes, but also to turn to new goals and challenges. This year’s program is dedicated to a number of current topics that drive tourism in the world and represent an opportunity not only for Croatian tourism but also for the promotion of the entire Croatian economy. This week dedicated to tourism will end with a session of the Government to be held in Hvar, where special emphasis will be placed on the importance of islands and tourism on islands, which accounts for more than a quarter of total tourist traffic in our country. ” pointed out the Secretary of State in the Ministry of Tourism Frano Matušić during the opening of the Croatian Tourism Day.”We are extremely pleased with the rich program of the Croatian Tourism Day, in which, in addition to numerous established domestic experts, our friends from other countries such as the USA, Japan and Poland will also participate. Nevertheless, given the basic task of the Croatian National Tourist Board, which is to strengthen the strength of the national tourist brand, I am especially pleased to announce a broader debate on the brand of our country. Of course, this year we will award the best from different segments of our overall tourist offer with an emphasis on the most important, and that is the people who work in tourism. It is precisely because of them that Croatia is today recognized as one of the world’s top tourist destinations. “, said the director of the CNTB Kristjan Staničić, adding that the strategic goals for next year refer to the positioning of Croatia as an attractive year-round destination, further strengthening of airlines and stronger promotional activities in distant markets such as China, Korea or the USA.  Photo: MintThe main part of the program begins with a panel discussion “Film industry and tourism” which will discuss the connection between tourism and film and the importance of the film industry for the tourist promotion of destinations. The lecture will be given by Al Merschen, President and Founder of MMGY Global, a leading PR and marketing group in the United States on the topic “Croatia – an attractive destination for American tourists.” On the second day of the event, the Croatian Tourist Forum of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce will be held on the topic of labor shortage in tourism. On the first day, part of the awards of the Croatian Tourist Board and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce will be presented, in the categories for destinations of the year, attractions of the year, awards to the business sector (Tourist flower – quality for Croatia) and for people in tourism.

Amid pandemic, White House race becomes digital dogfight

first_imgTrump has some 81 million Twitter followers compared with 5.8 million for Biden, and similar advantages on Facebook and other platforms.But Biden and an array of progressive organizations have been working to flood the internet with messages to neutralize Trump and his supporters. ‘Air cover’ for BidenDigital advertising for the 2020 election is expected to reach $1.8 billion, according to research firm Advertising Analytics, which boosted its estimates by 13.5 percent due to the pandemic.  The progressive policy group Acronym and its political action committee Pacronym have pledged a $75 million digital campaign to bring out voters for Biden.”Since last August we started to counter what we knew would be a sophisticated digital operation by President Trump,” said Acronym founder Tara McGowan.”We wanted to provide air cover for whoever the Democratic nominee would be since we knew the nominee would have a time and resources deficit.”Research by the group found a 3.6 percentage point drop in Trump’s approval rating among “persuadable voters” who have seen Pacronym’s digital ads.Acronym’s analysis of online ad spending showed Trump has spent over $62 million on Facebook and Google advertising since the 2018 midterm elections, compared with $21.9 million for Biden.But the analysis showed Biden and progressive groups began outspending Trump and his backers in early May on Facebook, and narrowed the gap on Google.”I don’t think the candidates themselves need to be as comfortable on social media as much as they need to hire experienced digital staffers,” McGowan said.”We’ve seen the Biden campaign make leaps and bounds in their digital strategy.” Targeting, manipulation Both campaigns will be testing the limits of online platforms’ policies on manipulation and microtargeting, as Trump ramps up his war of words against Silicon Valley platforms.”The shift to a digital focus in the 2020 election means online disinformation and propaganda will become more widespread and more potent,” said University of Texas professor Samuel Woolley, who researches computational propaganda.Woolley’s research suggests campaigns are increasing their use of geolocation tools which can surreptitiously gather information about voters using their smartphones.”Campaigns can find out which people are going to a gun range, to church or to Planned Parenthood, and they can turn that into actionable information,” Woolley said. “They might send messages out to try to get people to vote, or to discourage people from voting.”Jeffrey Chester of the Center for Digital Democracy warned of privacy concerns as political campaigns adopt technologies from digital marketers using location data and predictive analytics.These targeting tools raise the same issues as the Cambridge Analytica scandal over private data being used to fashion psychological voter profiles.”You are going to see artificial intelligence and machine learning used to make predictions about voters,” Chester said.”The campaigns are using all the latest tools to influence voters under the radar, and it’s completely unregulated.” The digital battleground Other groups are also active: the large Democratic party organization Priorities USA is pledging to spend $150 million to defeat Trump, with at least $40 million in digital.The newly formed political action group Defeat Disinfo plans to use paid influencers on social media and counter misinformation before it goes viral. “My experience is that the total share of volume of conversation about a candidate is driven not by the campaigns themselves but by media, activists and other organizations,” said Alan Rosenblatt, a Democrat-aligned digital strategist with Unfiltered Media and an adjunct professor at George Washington University.”That’s where the battlefield is and these groups can have a tremendous impact.”Rosenblatt added that Biden “has a lot of headroom to grow” on social media while Trump has probably maxed out with a social media army which has a considerable number of automated accounts or “bots.” Topics : Both sides agree that digital will play a critical role in the 2020 White House race as social media have taken the place of rallies and door-to-door campaigning.”The digital campaign has always been important. What has changed now is that it’s the only show in town,” said Republican digital strategist Eric Wilson, who has no direct role in the Trump campaign.Wilson said the Trump campaign’s experience since 2016 means it has a head start while Biden has been slow to embrace a digital strategy.”Voters are consuming politics as entertainment and Biden doesn’t seem to grasp his role as a social media influencer and doesn’t see any interest in changing that,” Wilson said. The 2020 US presidential race is becoming a digital-first campaign as the coronavirus pandemic cuts candidates off from traditional organizing and in-person events.On the surface, President Donald Trump has the edge over Democrat Joe Biden because of the incumbent’s extensive digital infrastructure and large social media following.But Biden has been stepping up his digital presence and is getting a boost from a handful of outside organizations seeking to counter Trump’s messaging on social platforms.last_img read more

Japan’s Government under current Prime Minister Shinzō Abe has been criticised for its response to the virus and fears have grown in recent weeks after the number of infections doubled. The Government has been accused of being slow to react by failing to bar visitors from China quickly enough, while Abe has come under fire for being too lax in its quarantine of the cruise ship. John Coates, chair of the IOC Coordination Commission for Tokyo 2020, claimed the World Health Organization had told the Commission there was “no case” for cancelling or postponing the Games. Dozens of events due to be held in China and other countries in the region have been impacted by the virus, however.

But the outbreak has raised concern for Tokyo 2020 in the build-up to the event, with Japan recently emerging as one of the riskiest places for the spread of the virus. There have been 110 confirmed cases of the virus, known as COVID-19, in Japan, although 634 others have been infected on a cruise ship which has been quarantined in Yokohama since February 3. Aside from the two deaths resulting from the Diamond Princess cruise ship, one person has died from the virus in the Olympic and Paralympic host nation. “I pray to God every day that the coronavirus will just vanish,” Mori said in an interview with the Sponichi Annex newspaper. Mori, a former Japanese Prime Minister, also claimed he plans to “to hold out to the end without wearing a mask”, despite the outbreak.last_img read more
