The second week of the 2021 ESP Spring Series opened on the grass Derby Field at Equestrian Village, kicking off the first of two consecutive weeks of three-star competition. In Thursday afternoon’s feature class, Kristen Vanderveen (USA) and Bull Run’s Faustino De Tili, owned by Bull Run Jumpers Five, LLC, jumped to the top of the podium, taking top honors in the $37,000 CCTV Agent 1.45m Jumpers CSI3*.ESP Spring II continues with a busy Friday of competition at both Equestrian Village and the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC), featuring the $37,000 JTWG Qualifier CSI3* on the grass Derby Field and the $10,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby presented by Perfect Products in the International Arena at PBIEC. Saturday’s schedule features the $37,000 HorseLinc 1.50m Classic CSI3* and the week concludes with the $137,000 Bainbridge Companies Grand Prix CSI3* on Sunday, April 18. The 2021 ESP Spring Series continues with a total of five weeks of competition until Sunday, May 15. Feature classes will be available live and on-demand for free on the livestream.Over a technical speed track set by Catsy Cruz (MEX) and Andy Christiansen (ECU), 50 horse-and-rider combinations took on the test, with 19 pairs producing clear efforts. Vanderveen proved to be the quickest of the day, crossing the finish line in a blistering 61.31 seconds. The victory also marked a pair of firsts for Vanderveen as she jumped on the grass for the first time this season and campaigned her veteran mount for the first time ever on the distinguished turf track.“Just because of the way my schedule unfolded this winter, it’s my first time getting a chance to jump on the grass field,” said Vanderveen. “Even though I’ve had ‘Frosty’ for so long, this is actually his first time jumping on the grass. He’s naturally pretty fast so I wanted to go quick enough but not too fast. I saw Erynn [Ballard] go and she was fantastic, so I tried to do about the same track she did and then just one less stride to the last jump. He felt fantastic.”The aforementioned Erynn Ballard (CAN) landed in the runner-up position with her clear effort aboard Verdict De Kezeg, owned by Ilan Ferder. Ballard and the 12-year-old Selle Français gelding by Diamant De Semilly x Hazelle De Rhuys stopped the clock in 62.38 seconds. Ireland’s Darragh Kenny and Arena UK Winston, a 12-year-old Irish Sport Horse stallion owned by Normal Oley, rounded out the podium in a time of 62.56 seconds, to finish in third. Canadian Sam Walker finished 8th aboard Coralissa.Notching an impressive win by a margin of more than a full second, Vanderveen credits her horse’s big stride for helping her gain the edge in the opening class.“With his big stride, I can do things that a lot of other horses just don’t have the range for,” she said. “We ended up doing four strides down the last line, which I think helped land and hit the timers the right way.“I’m not normally a big fan of grass myself as a rider,” she continued. “I’m always a little hesitant but the field was great. I thought the footing was nice and I’m really happy with the result today.”Looking ahead, Vanderveen will focus on Saturday’s $37,000 HorseLinc 1.50m Classic CSI3* with Bull Run’s Faustino De Tiliwhile her other mount Bull Run’s Prince of Peace will contest Friday’s $37,000 JTWG Qualifier CSI3* in hopes of qualifying for the grand prix on Sunday.Conor Swail (IRL) and Gamble. (Sportfot photo)Earlier in the day, Ireland’s Conor Swail piloted Gamble, a 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding owned by Asta Torokvei, to a victory in the $6,000 Bainbridge Companies 1.40m jumpers CSI3*. A starting field of 65 entries challenged the two-phase format, with Swail posting a double-clear effort and stopping the clock in an impressive 30.80 seconds in the jump-off portion.“Every time you go in the ring, he gives you 100 percent, which is very pleasing,” said Swail of the gelding by Vingino x Indoctro. “My plan was to have a nice jump around. There was one inside turn, and I did six [strides] to the double combination, which was a little long. The idea in the second phase with him is always just to canter along a little bit because he does enjoy doing that and I think it does help his jumping performance as well. This is all obviously to set him up for Friday’s class, as I want to be able to have a good round with him tomorrow.”Gamble was originally imported from Europe by Torokvei as a four-year-old. Three years ago, she gave the ride to Swail, who has moved him up from the 1.25m level and into the bigger international classes since then. As the partnership continues to grow, a change in bits this past fall has helped the gelding reach even greater heights.“I decided to put him into a hackamore when we were in Europe,” he said. “For me, it seemed to just loosen up his shoulder a little bit and it helps prevent me from interfering with his front end as much whenever I’m balancing and trying to get a good spot for him to jump from. His shoulder works really well, and he seems to like it a lot. I was really happy with the way he jumped today.”Final Results: $37,000 CCTV Agent 1.45m Jumpers CSI3*1.

Composable Infrastructure: Today and Tomorrow

first_imgYou may hear people say that they’ve cracked the interconnect problem, but what speak volumes is that all the OEMs are working together architecturally for a memory semantic fabric which is needed for dis-aggregation and full composability. You may hear other people say PCIe is capable of this, but PCIe was never optimized nor does it have the capabilities to enable a memory semantic fabric needed for dis-aggregation. Many have tried to make it a shareable fabric and failed – again, why Gen-Z was created.Beyond the hardware, the software evolution is in progress, because full composability requires that third parties be involved with open APIs — which is why the industry through DMTF just added composability support to Redfish. SNIA Swordfish has emerged as an extension of the DMTF Redfish specification, so the same easy-to-use RESTful interface is used to seamlessly manage storage equipment and storage services.  As part of DMTF, Dell EMC has been active in shaping this future for the good of our customers and the industry. Back to TodayToday, composability is tackled by “grouping”. A great example of this is our Dell EMC DSS 9000 rack scale infrastructure. Designed with rack level management, the DSS 9000 uses open and industry standard APIs including DMTF Redfish and SNIA Swordfish. Along with Intel® Rack Scale Design (RSD), the DSS 9000 is designed to:Ensure interoperability with heterogeneous systemsEnable compute, storage and networking resources to be grouped together, provisioned and managed as oneAllow customers to compose systems from the rack and across the datacenterAll while working in the cloud environment of choice – whether its OpenStack, VMware, Microsoft or a custom orchestration platformThe below image helps illustrate this point.How to complete the journey?So how do we complete the journey to full composability?  Let me say it again. We must embrace industry efforts toward a memory-centric architecture so we can dis-aggregate down to the memory centric world (DRAM, SCM, GPUs, etc.).The industry is on the right path through industry collaboration on Gen-Z, efforts in DMTF with Redfish and SNIA’s SwordFish.  Every quarter, we are getting closer to enabling such an architecture, but the industry isn’t there right now.The hype on composable is high. The good news is this reaffirms the industry and Dell EMC that we’re working on the right problem. The bad news is that the composable discussion lacks the much needed context of what’s possible and not possible today. Rest assured though, Dell EMC will continue to work across the industry to bring together an ecosystem of partners to deliver the full potential of composable infrastructure. For over a year, I’ve been writing blogs about composable infrastructure, which is the idea that data centers ought to be defined by the needs of applications – not by the ideas of a data center admin or an IT executive. And, why is this important? As workloads become more dynamic, infrastructures have had to become more dynamic as well. Composable infrastructure turns physical infrastructure into pools of modular building blocks that workloads can use, as needed, to provide a service.Previous blogs:Memory Centric Architecture VisionGen-Z – An Open Fabric Technology Standard on the Journey to ComposabilityReality Check: Is Composable Infrastructure Ready for Prime Time?A Practical View of Composable InfrastructureHowever, I keep encountering confusion and myths about composable that need to be addressed. For example, the other day I had a customer ask about a rack scale solution that allowed 32 standard two-socket servers to turn into a true 64-socket SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) machine magically through this thing called composable or rack scale systems – this is a myth BTW.It’s becoming more and more evident that we have a composable hype problem. While the OEM architecture community (Dell EMC, HPE, Lenovo, Huawei, Cray, IBM…) is working to address the architectural needs via collaboration in the Gen-Z consortium it appears to me some in the industry are confused as to what is possible and what is hype.So let’s clarify what we’re exploring, its value and where we are on the journey. And, since this blog is long, here’s the “Cliff Notes”:First, this blog in no way implies that Dell EMC doesn’t value or have composable infrastructure offerings- it’s implying the opposite. Composable infrastructure – and Dell EMC offerings – allow organizations to be more agile, have lower operational costs and accelerate innovation.That being said, there’s a lot of marketing hype that talks about composable and the nirvana end state without distinguishing the two. That’s creating a lot of confusion.OEM architects know that composable isn’t a full-fledged set of capabilities today (as evident through their involvement in Gen-Z). That nirvana has not been reached and your warning alarms should go off for any vendor who tells you otherwise.Achieving the nirvana state or what I call “full composability” means customers can disaggregate cores, DRAM, storage class memory, accelerators, storage and networking. No one can disaggregate the components on the server to date, and the industry must embrace a memory-centric architecture with disaggregation to make this a reality.While there is plenty of marketing hype, Dell EMC is working across the industry to bring together an ecosystem of partners to deliver the full potential of composable infrastructure.Composable Definition & BenefitsTo begin, let’s (again) address the question: What is composable?“Composable” is a service-centric model with a reassignment of heterogeneous infrastructure resources to rapidly meet the needs of variable workloads.  It has software-defined characteristics applied to hardware modules (network/storage/compute) with simplified and automated administration to implement and manage the dis-aggregated infrastructure. It seeks to dis-aggregate compute, storage, and networking fabric resources into shared resource pools that can be available for on-demand allocation.The move towards composable is all part of the evolution toward a more modular, integrated, fluid infrastructure. At the end of the day, composable infrastructure is about providing greater business agility and unlocking efficiencies that just aren’t possible today. What does this mean exactly?For customers, this means they can finally capitalize on the promise of “pay-as-you-go” from the end-to-end consumption model of IT.For end users, this means being able to dynamically adjust IT resource consumption as the business needs fluctuate.For IT provider, this means being able to efficiently orchestrate the business demands across their infrastructure without the need to physically setup or reconfigure hardware resources to maintain competitiveness.By all accounts, composable can and will have high value. Imagine assembly of the perfect IT infrastructure – optimized ratio of cores, memory, accelerators, storage, and networking plus a management and orchestration layer that simply instructs the infrastructure to aggregate the right resources in the right place at the right time, and then return all the disaggregated assets back when completed for the next job.This is a great idea, but the technology isn’t there yet. This level of agility cannot be fully realized until systems are completely disaggregated and virtually stitched back together to form a pool of resources, where applications and workloads can be orchestrated across these pools. From this point forward, I will refer to this nirvana state as full composability.Composable infrastructure as we know it today The industry is heading in the direction of full composability but it does not exist today. Below is a quick look at what the industry can and cannot compose today: What can’t the industry compose today? What can the industry compose today? What needs to happen for full composability?Getting to a fluid, dynamic infrastructure is a journey and Dell EMC is accelerating that shift while working with the industry to re-invent both hardware and software aligning with a broad vision for composable infrastructure.On the hardware side, accelerators, IO and memory inside the server are the least composable resources today because we don’t have technology available for dis-aggregation down into the memory semantic world. The difficultly lies in the elements we are trying to dis-aggregate – it’s all about bandwidth & latency.Slow resources (micro seconds) like storage/network have thick protocol stacks (TCP/IP, iSCSI, NFS…), where layering software on top does not impact overall performance. In case of HCI/SDS it can enhance performance because of local data.Fast resources (nano seconds) that live in the memory domain (DRAM, storage class memory, GPUs/FPGAs) talk native CPU load/store, not protocol stacks. By not having protocol stacks on the fast devices, the resources that live in the memory domain remain in the native language of the CPU load/store – yet it’s these fast resources that are critical to achieving full composability.So the question becomes: how do you keep the latency down for these fast devices? You dis-aggregate using a memory centric architecture and a memory semantic fabric like Gen-Z. Below is an image of what this would look like. Accelerators (GPUs, FPGAs, SmartNICs): These are trapped resources attached to the IO bus of the CPU. Network: We can compose the network using open software defined networking. Storage class memory: This is a trapped resource attached to the CPU.center_img Server-attached storage: We can create pools of server-attached storage via software defined storage; we can create shared virtual storage using advanced RAID/MRIOV techniques; and we can dynamically assign SAS drives via SAS controller/fabric. Network adapters: These are trapped resources attached to the IO bus of the CPU. Server: We can logically group servers into groups to be managed as one. And, here is Dell EMC’s full portfolio that spans what is composable today: Traditional storage: We can create storage pools using traditional SAN/NAS over Ethernet/Fibre Channel; we can dynamically assign SAS drives via SAS controller/fabric; and we can dynamically assign NVMe drives via NVMe over fabric. DRAM: This is a trapped resource attached to the CPU.last_img read more

‘It’s like taking away the keys to your house’: Off-campus representatives react to new housing policies

first_imgIn recent years, the Notre Dame administration has made several changes to its housing policies to discourage students from moving off campus. Administrators say the policies will strengthen the campus community, but off-campus student leaders argue that the policies will push students further apart. “It’s a family and a sense of belonging that I think they’re trying to take away from us,” senior Katie O’Sullivan, president of the Off-Campus Council, said.Nicole Simon | The Observer Six semestersIn September 2017, administrators announced the “six-semester policy” — the first of several major housing policy changes. The new rule requires that all Notre Dame students, beginning with the class of 2022, live on campus for six full semesters.Quentin Colo, the student senator for the off-campus community, said low-income students feel squeezed by the six-semester requirement.“Several students reached out to me and they said, ‘Look, I have to move off campus. I don’t want to pay $16,000 to live in the dorm. Why would I do that when I can pay $5,000, [and] get a cheaper meal plan off campus?” Colo, a senior, said.Additionally, off-campus leaders say the six-semester policy poses problems for transfer students, who aren’t guaranteed a spot in the residence halls. “They’re overpopulating the campus but also shutting away transfers,” Susan Seiler, vice president of the Off-Campus Council, said.With fewer housing options, O’Sullivan said many students’ needs will go unmet.“There are a variety of reasons why people move off [campus], and taking that away from people — it’s not right,” O’Sullivan said. Value of the Off-Campus ExperienceIf the University had its way, and no students ever moved off campus, the Notre Dame community would lose important perspectives, the leaders said. Seiler explained that the dorms don’t prepare students for life after college.“We actually need life skills. There’s not a class here that teaches you how to cook for yourself, how to grocery shop, how to budget. You don’t have to learn any of that living in a dorm,” Seiler said.The off-campus leaders added that many students sleep, eat and shop on campus, and rarely venture into South Bend.“Some kids just literally don’t know there’s a world outside of Notre Dame,” Seiler said. This divide between the Notre Dame and South Bend community is a problem, the representatives said. They worry that if fewer students move off campus, that divide could deepen.“Being off campus has definitely attuned me to the problems of people who are living in South Bend,” Colo said. Key cardsIn previous years, Notre Dame students could enter any dorm using their Irish1Cards. But this year, the University restricted that access, citing safety concerns. Now, students’ Irish1Cards only open the doors to their own dorms.For off-campus students, this change means they cannot enter any residence hall with their student IDs — including their old dorms. Without that key-card access, the off-campus representatives say they feel pushed out of their own communities.“It’s like taking away the keys to your house,” O’Sullivan said, “I think they downplayed the severity of that, but it’s a big thing. It’s just one more step in the … process of kicking off-campus students out of the Notre Dame community.”Colo says he’s skeptical of the University’s reasoning behind the new Irish1Card policy. “I do think the University has some concern about safety, and I understand that. We all want to live in a safe dorm,” Colo said. “But I just don’t think that the most recent policies are [motivated by] safety. I just truly don’t believe that.” Off-Campus “exclusion” policiesIn April, the University doubled down on its efforts to keep students on campus. The Division of Student Affairs announced that beginning in the fall of 2021, off-campus students will lose access to dorm dances and interhall sports teams.The off-campus representatives argue that these changes — excluding off-campus students from dorm programming — will fracture the Notre Dame community.“In my dorm, the people who are off campus who are still involved in the community — they’re looked up to. They’re pillars of the community,” Colo said.Without those off-campus students present at dorm events, the representatives say that everyone — on-campus and off-campus students alike — will suffer.“It’s hurting underclassmen who now no longer have people to look up to and talk to and ask about classes because they’ll never be at dorm events anymore,” Seiler said.Colo says the University isn’t acting in students’ best interests.“Most of the University’s policies, it’s kind of like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. But the three-year policy and the recent exclusion policy are coming as wolves. There’s no way to look around it. The only motive that I see is perhaps a profit one,” Colo said. Hearing but not listeningThe off-campus representatives say the University has been ignoring their concerns.“We have not met with them about any of these changes. And I really question how much they actually listen to what we’re saying,” Colo said.O’Sullivan said she’s reached out to administrators and tried to discuss the housing policy changes, but administrators have not yet agreed to meet.“I felt like we were just being pushed to the side,” O’Sullivan said.In the meantime, the representatives are trying to organize the off-campus student community. On October 1, they’re hosting an Engagement and Informative Housing Fair for students who already live off-campus or those who are considering moving off. They’re also developing a petition opposing many of the new housing policies.But, as the University moves forward with its housing initiatives, the off-campus students worry that administrators won’t consider their perspectives.“They always say they hear us,” Colo said, “I wish they actually listened to us.”Tags: Housing policy, off campus council, off-campus housing, Six Semester Policylast_img read more

Apple Hills trades in strawberries for pumpkins

first_img“Fall is really becoming our time, so you’ll have pumpkins now.” Instead, the farm has its eyes on the fall. For the first time, they will be growing pumpkins to be ready for the end of summer. Farmer Dave Johnson told 12 News the return was not worth the work put into those crops. He said the weather makes strawberries extremely hard to grow. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — July is typically the time of year to pick strawberries and cherries at Apple Hills Farm Cafe. This year, the farm will not be growing either.center_img “Here we have challenges with rain, and it’s moist all the time, so you have rot and fungus, and it’s just hard to grow,” said Dave Johnson.

first_imgFrench developer of hydrokinetic technology for both river and ocean application, HydroQuest, will launch the testing of its first two tidal turbines at the SEENEOH site on March 1, when SEENEOH will also inaugurate its tidal test site located on the Garonne river in Bordeaux, France.SEENEOH announced HydroQuest as the first company to test its tidal technology at the site in June 2017, when the French tidal test centre said the tidal technology developer will test four bi-directional turbines with the capacity of 80kW on a 50-tonne floating testing barge named Bilbao.The testing of HydroQuest’s system will last for 12 months.The company was selected by the French Agency for Environment and Energy Management (ADEME) in February 2017 to develop a 2MW in-river tidal energy project featuring 39 of its river turbines on the river Rhône in the eastern France.A few months earlier, in Q4 of 2016, ADEME chose HydroQuest and Constructions Mécaniques de Normandie (CMN) to jointly install a 1MW ocean hydrokinetic tidal turbine off Brittany, France.The SEENEOH test site became fully operational in March 2017, when the final testing berth was connected to the grid. The site features three testing berths designed to trial tidal devices with either mounted or floating fixation type, along with the 250kW connection to the onshore substation.The test centre’s second user is DesignPro, an Irish company that is scheduled to put its 25kW hydrokinetic turbine for trial in April 2018.last_img read more
