first_imgHayley Jane is one of the most vibrant and energetic performers in the music scene today. Her voice blends rich tones comparable to Feist with powerful projection in the vein of Janis Joplin. When she takes the stage, she heightens the energy of each performance with her soulful dancing and playful interaction with the audience and musicians. As an Artist-At-Large for Disc Jam Music Festival last weekend in Stephentown New York, Hayley Jane went above and beyond. She took the stage with multiple acts per day on the eclectic lineup and had a different outfit, style, and vibe for each performance. Some of the moments created during these performances were highlights of the entire festival.Along with being an Artist-At-Large, Hayley Jane also had the honor of closing out Disc Jam with Ryan Montbleau as they presented their new duo, Yes Darling, which provided a cherry on top of the musical sundae that is Disc Jam.Here are four videos that capture the heart of Hayley Jane’s Disc Jam Music Festival Artist-At-Large experience:Bad Reputation by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts – Performed with Kung FuSoulshine by The Allman Brothers – Performed with Pink Talking FishWaterfalls by TLC – Performed with Roots Of CreationCriminal by Fiona Apple – Performed with AqueousHere is a full chronological list of Hayley Jane’s performances at Disc Jam Music Festival:Strange Machines: Soul Kitchen by The DoorsRoots Of Creation: Waterfalls by TLCRoots Of Creation: Fire On The Mountain by The Grateful DeadBearly Dead: Deal by The Grateful DeadBearly Dead: Tennessee Jed by The Grateful DeadCongo Sanchez: Improvised FunkAqueous: Criminal by Fiona AppleKung Fu: Bad Reputation by Joan Jett & The BlackheartsAfter Funk: Sugaree by The Grateful DeadAnnie In The Water: Crispy by Annie In The WaterPink Talking Fish: Soulshine by The Allman BrothersYes Darling: Full Set of Original Music to close out Disc JamHayley Jane is spending the Summer touring with her band, Hayley Jane & The Primates, as well as Solo Acoustic performances.

first_img 10Old room keys form a collage, which was inspired by Quincy House Master Deb Gehrke. The collage is on display in the House. After 15 months of construction and renovation, Old Quincy House is ready to welcome back students for the 2013-14 academic year.A first look at the recently completed “test project” in the House renewal initiative revealed a restored exterior, and an interior that has been fundamentally reconfigured to meet the changing needs of students and the rapidly shifting world in which they are learning.Beyond the physical improvements, the renewal of Old Quincy will enhance the interactions of the students, faculty, and tutors living there while reinvigorating House life, which is one of the most important aspects of learning at Harvard.“This is absolutely fantastic,” said Dean Michael D. Smith of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, who led a sneak peek tour of Old Quincy today. “This space is incredibly comfortable, and it really draws you in. But if you look at the hallways, the rooms, it still has the feel of a typical Harvard House.”The highlight of the tour was the new, state-of-the-art “smart classroom.”  Situated in what was formerly basement storage space, the classroom is complete with video screens, tablets, mondo pads, cameras, and additional cutting-edge technology, as well as movable desks to encourage collaboration. Six Harvard faculty members will teach courses in the classroom this year.“The smart classroom is one of the best examples of how we deliberately reconfigured previously unused space to bolster the learning that happens in the House,” Smith said.New room configurations led to the creation of new study nooks and common spaces. The traditional vertical entries have been preserved, but new horizontal corridors allow tutors to have a closer connection to the students in their charge.All the wiring and plumbing infrastructure has been updated, and new spaces for meeting, studying, and musical performances have been created in the lower level. A new, fully furnished terrace lounge will provide a comfortable place to watch the big game, and opens to an outdoor patio.In keeping with Harvard’s commitment to sustainability, the renewal of Old Quincy was completed with a focus on preservation and energy efficiency. Better-insulated walls and windows will significantly cut the energy used to heat the building, and a water-retention tank will help to reduce waste by recycling rainwater for use in irrigation systems and toilets.“I am very excited to see how the students take over this space, use it, and make it their own,” Smith said.— Colin Manning, FAS Communications 8Interim Dean of Harvard College Donald Pfister (left), KieranTimberlake architect Stephen Kieran, and Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Michael D.

first_imgIntroducing the Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack HCINew challenges force us to find new solutions, but sometimes the challenges are so great they require an entirely different way of thinking about the solution.Cloud was the digital transformation solution to all of IT’s challenges. That is, until it wasn’t. IT departments across organizations were forced to address cloud sprawl, uncontrolled costs, and governance to ensure efficient IT spend.Then came the era of the hybrid cloud, representing the best of both worlds: the elasticity of public cloud and the security control of on-premises infrastructure. But that too brought a new set of challenges. This proliferation of deployment models required IT staff with the knowledge and skills to manage each of these unique architectures. It also required a unique set of tools to manage each of the cloud and on-premises environments.Together, Dell Technologies and Microsoft are addressing these needs with the Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI. This system is designed to do one thing and do it really well – optimize the operational experience of Microsoft’s next generation of Azure Stack HCI.Next Gen Azure Stack HCIAt their Inspire event earlier this year, Microsoft announced the evolution of its HCI solution which is now delivered as an Azure service, not through a traditional licensing model. Users will consume Azure Stack HCI like they would Azure cloud instances, but the infrastructure lives on-premises. It’s by nature a hybrid solution – one that lives in your data center or in a Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO) environment. Because of its Azure integration, customers have access to the latest security, performance and feature enhancements from Microsoft on a regular basis.Announcing the Dell EMC Integrated System for Azure Stack HCIToday we are excited to announce that we are launching a new offer: Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI – an all-in-one, validated HCI system with intelligently integrated foundation from Dell Technologies.When HCI systems hit the market about 10 years ago, traditional servers were the underlying infrastructure, however HCI software has unique performance requirements. To meet the demands of HCI software, Dell EMC took the experience and expertise engineering PowerEdge servers and tailored them to meet the needs of software-defined solutions. Optimized hardware platforms and unique software integrations have propelled Dell EMC HCI systems to #1 in the HCI market.¹“Today we are excited to announce that we are launching a new offer: Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI – an all-in-one, validated HCI system with intelligently integrated foundation from Dell Technologies.”ShareWhen it came to designing infrastructure platforms for Azure Stack HCI, we built on that knowledge and experience, yet in some ways had to go back to the drawing board. That’s because the unique hybrid nature of Azure Stack HCI challenged our engineering team to not only think about creating the best HCI platform, we needed to create the best hybrid HCI platform. That’s why every chassis, every drive, DIMM, processor and adapter selection was made specifically to optimize for Azure Stack HCI.“An example of a successful long-term relationship is the collaboration that went into the Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI. This purpose-built system was designed specifically for the new Azure Stack HCI OS and is a testament to the engineering expertise of our two organizations,” according to Talal Alqinawi, Senior Director at Microsoft. “Together Dell Technologies and Microsoft are making hybrid cloud simple for customers from the core datacenter to Azure public cloud to the edge.”Same tools, new tricksWhile 93% of enterprises have a multi-cloud strategy, only a third of those are using multi-cloud management tools², leaving the other two-thirds to manage their cloud deployments through different portals, tools, etc.With the Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI, IT teams can use their familiarity of Azure, Windows Server, and Hyper-V to run and operate Azure Stack HCI with tools such as Windows Admin Center, PowerShell and the Azure portal.We know that technology doesn’t run itself so when we set out to purpose-build our integrated system for Azure Stack HCI, we thought as much about the management expertise as we did about the hardware. The outcome was a simplified deployment and full stack lifecycle management experience through the OpenManage Integration for Windows Admin Center which reduces manual tasks by 82%, greatly reducing the risk of data entry mistakes or installation option guess work³.Turning a Challenge into a SolutionWhen you’re ready to get started with the new Azure Stack HCI, Dell Technologies is here to support you with a team of experts. From start to finish and beyond, our proven enterprise-class deployment tools, global support, and consulting services aim to reduce the complexity that comes with design, deployment and management.While the magic of cloud is mostly the notion that you only pay for what you use, Dell Technologies on Demand delivers on that same promise with flexible payment solutions for Azure Stack HCI. With the ability to pay as you use, but with the control and security of our infrastructure on-premises, Azure Stack HCI might actually be the best of both worlds for Microsoft environments.The Dell EMC Integrated System for Azure Stack HCI will be available to ship initially in two configurations – the AX-640 and AX-740xd – starting in Q1 2021.¹ DC WW Quarterly Converged Systems Tracker, Vendor Revenue (US$M) Q2 2020, September 17, 2020² Flexera State of the Cloud Report 2020 Internal lab review, taken from Dell EMC Solutions for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI: Life Cycle Management Approach Comparison Benefits of Automating the Azure Stack HCI Hardware Update Process, August 2020³ Internal lab review, taken from Dell EMC Solutions for Microsoft Azure Stack HCI: Life Cycle Management Approach Comparison Benefits of Automating the Azure Stack HCI Hardware Update Process, August 2020last_img read more

first_imgEditor’s note: This is the third installment in a three-part series discussing the Rutagengwa family’s search for God from the 1994 Rwandan genocide in light of their trip back to Rwanda in December.Notre Dame freshman Fiona Rutagengwa is the child of genocide survivors.Her parents, Jean Bosco Rutagengwa and Christine Rutagengwa, survived the 1994 Rwandan genocide and spent 40 fearful days in the Hotel des Mille Collines, better known as “Hotel Rwanda.”Fiona Rutagengwa said the atrocities her parents faced and witnessed have motivated her to work to prevent genocide in the future.“My parents went through a lot and they haven’t talked about it throughout my life,” she said. “But knowing about their past inspired me to learn more about it, and I’m doing political science because I want to learn about international studies and how to make peace accords.“I feel like [my family background is] an important part of my life, and that’s basically why I’m here.”Fiona Rutagengwa was born in Rwanda and moved to the United States when she was four years old because living conditions were unsafe for her family, she said.“It’s kind of unbelievable, because I was born in Rwanda, and the way I saw it, it was the aftermath, and I’ve really been protected from the reality of the situation because all I remember was sunny days and banana trees everywhere,” she said.“But my parents kept telling me about what happened, and I realized that the developmental aspects … are a little iffy over there. It’s unsafe. My father told me that the reason we came here was it wasn’t safe enough.”Despite the dangers the Rutagengwas faced during and after the genocide, Fiona said her parents emphasized faith throughout their trials.“You’d think it would take me away from God a little bit, but actually, seeing the way my parents dealt with it … they appreciated the fact that they survived and how they got out of the situation,” she said. “So that made their faith stronger, especially my mom.“She thanks God every day and she stresses that it’s a blessing to be on this earth, and it’s made her a lot more religious, and that’s the way she raised our family — to be grateful for every day you have and the family that you have and all those people that support you. It’s really influenced the way she looks at the world and the way she raises us.”Fiona Rutagengwa said her father has written a memoir about his personal search for God from the genocide, parts of which he once shared with her high school religion class.“It was funny because that day I learned a lot of things that I didn’t know about him, like his experience, because it’s not every day that he talks about it,” she said. “I was there with my sister, and it was kind of eye-opening to see what he went through.”Fiona Rutagengwa said her father emphasized a message similar to that of Holocaust survivor and author Elie Wiesel — that we should “never again” make genocide a reality.To better understand the meaning of Jean Bosco Rutagengwa’s message, theology professors Fr. Dan Groody and Fr. Virgil Elizondo and project coordinator for the Institute of Latino Studies Colleen Cross accompanied the couple to their home country in December.Fiona Rutagengwa said Groody first introduced her to Notre Dame when he began working with her parents two years ago.Even though she was unable to return to Rwanda with her family in December, Fiona Rutagengwa said her parents have begun to share more with her about their personal experiences, thus inspiring her to live out her father’s mission.“My mom told me the story about my family and what they’ve been through,” she said. “Her sister has experienced a lot of things, and she told me about her other sister who died, and she was really maimed and everything, and that image hasn’t escaped my head for a long time.“My mom has a lot of things hidden from me, but when she tells me things, it explains a lot about how my family is now and what the after effects are. I appreciate her telling me. It kind of gives me inspiration to do more and really carry out my father’s plan of having it never again be a reality.”Tags: Genocide, Rwandalast_img read more

first_imgThe Vermont Senate today passed the FY09 Budget Adjustment bill with a 26-1 vote.  The passage of this bill will ensure that Vermont continues to maintain vital state services.  The bill also allows the state to draw down millions of dollars made available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. In addition to balancing the state budget, these dollars will put Vermonters to work and repair our crumbling roads and bridges. The Budget Adjustment bill cuts general fund spending by $42 million and uses the American Recovery and Reinvestment funds to balance the state budget.  The federal economic stimulus package was intended to stabilize state budgets as states across the nation, including Vermont, face staggering deficits and allow states to avoid reductions in essential services, said President Pro Tem Peter Shumlin. This Budget Adjustment bill uses the federal funds to ensure that Vermont maintains critical state services at a time when Vermonters are relying on them more than ever before.Several highway projects around the state will be funded with the first half of the federal stimulus money.  These projects will put Vermonters to work this spring, fixing our crumbling roads and bridges.  In order to receive these federal funds, the money needs to be obligated in 120 days.  This bill grants the authority to obligate that money and identifies a list of potential projects that can be funded with this first portion of federal highway stimulus dollars.In the Administration s initial budget adjustment proposal, it was proposed that the April town highway payments be reduced by 15 percent. With overwhelming support from the Senate Transportation Committee, a provision was included in the Budget Adjustment bill to ensure that town highway payments in April are the full quarterly payments. Like the state, towns across the state are struggling to balance their budgets and fund projects, said Senator Susan Bartlett, Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee.  It is imperative that during these troubling times we keep our commitment to the towns of Vermont.In addition, stipulations of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act required Vermont to suspend increases in Medicaid premiums in order to draw down potentially $260 million in federal funds.  With the enactment of this bill, Vermont will be able to draw down the first installment of these funds and is expected to receive roughly $36 million by early May.last_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo June 11, 2009 6/8/2009 – KINGSTON, Jamaica — A specialized military medical team has formed an integral part of Operation Southern Partner by increasing the training and proficiency of partner nations in the U.S. Southern Command area of focus. Operation Southern Partner is a two-week 12th Air Force-led event providing intensive, subject matter exchanges with partner nation Air Forces in career fields identified by participants. The exchanges cover dozens of specialties interfacing with not only host-nation experts in Jamaica, but also Barbados, Guyana, St. Lucia, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago and Belize. The medical team is part of the Defense Institute for Medical Operations at Brooks City Base, Texas. Their mission – provide the highest quality of international medical education and training. Maj. Kimberly Reed, chief of DIMO’s clinical operations division, said the unit, comprised of about 20 people and established in 2002, is focused solely on assisting other countries in improving their level of medical care. Missions are closely choreographed, with specific specialties forming each team to ensure the right mix of subject matter experts is present for each mission. DIMO doesn’t have the personnel infrastructure in place to support the variety of missions it teaches, and must task other organizations to assist in accomplishing its mission, Reed said. “(We) task doctors, nurses and medical technicians from Wilford Hall Medical Center and other facilities to form the core of each team,” she said. “We provide whatever type of training a nation requests – from first responder to aeromedical evacuation.” The team, which arrived here Sunday following a five-day stay in Guyana, South America, will provide a contingent of Jamaican military doctors, nurses and medical technicians with first responder training. The training will focus not only on initial injury assessment, but also on what actions to take during a crisis, Reed said. “First responders are the initial people to see and evaluate a person after an injury,” Reed, who’s been a nurse for 13 years, said. “Whether it’s a person on the street, a paramedic, or a nurse at the door of the hospital, time is of the essence and could be a key factor regarding how successful follow-on treatment will be.” The specialized unit travels abroad to teach 19 medical courses and has two in-residence courses taught at its Brooks City Base location. Since its inception in 2002, DIMO has provided medical education and training to more than 4,500 students in 100 different countries.last_img read more

Saz García. That rotation will move through one post under each of the Naval Unit’s departments. The Peruvian Navy’s guided-missile frigate BAP Villavicencio (FM-52) departed on May 2 for VIEX-2015, a foreign instructional tour through the Americas that will extend until July 14. The Cadets will practice a wide array of skills during VIEX-2015, including administrative tasks.
