Maximum for the MinimumDell EMC Cloud DR requires a minimal footprint in AWS, as well as minimal compute cycles, resulting in a disaster recovery solution with minimal cost. Dell EMC was also able to help SCI-Arc maintain a smaller cloud footprint. Initially, SCI-Arc stored 570 TB of uncompressed data, after it is run through Dell EMC’s patented deduplication technology on-prem, and in the cloud, they are backing up about 10 TB of data – a 57:1 deduplication ratio. They also went from retaining six months’ worth of backups to retaining two years’ worth of cloud backups with ease, all while having little to zero network impact. Cloud DR has enabled SCI-Arc to become more cost-effective by eliminating the need for a secondary backup server.Dell EMC was able to revolutionize backup in the cloud for SCI-Arc by eliminating a secondary DR, extending their cloud backup retention while reducing their overall cloud footprint. According to Peter Kekich, Network Systems Administrator at SCI-Arc, “Dell Technologies was our chosen provider because of their track record. Being able to recall all of these backups at a moment’s notice was crucial for us to be successful running our IT department at SCI-Arc.” In a creative environment such as SCI-Arc, Dell EMC data protection offers peace of mind and eliminates worries about whether student creativity and projects are getting backed up properly or if the data can be fully and promptly restored.Learn more about SCI-Arc in this case study. One of the most compelling use cases for cloud data protection is disaster recovery (DR). DR operations are critical for every business, from startup to enterprise and from research to banking to retail. An inadequate disaster recovery plan or infrastructure can lead to, well, disaster…at the most critical moment.While there are many effective DR architectures stemming from on-prem and co-located environments, the cloud offers a new dynamic in storage targets – one that can be safe, secure, economically viable and easily managed, with tools that an organization’s IT staff already knows.Dell EMC data protection solutions include Cloud Disaster Recovery (Cloud DR), cloud-enabled disaster recovery infrastructure, that bolsters your business continuity operations and makes the most of your cloud investment, whether it be a hybrid cloud, public cloud platform (Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure), or a multi-cloud environment. But the proof is in the pudding, as they say. Let’s look at an organization in Los Angeles which recently rolled out Dell EMC Cloud DR.Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) is a top-ranked, award-winning institution that is shaping the great architectural minds of tomorrow and serves as an incubator for some of the most innovative thinking in architecture. SCI-Arc offers both graduate and undergraduate degrees and is home to over 500 students as well as 80 faculty members, most of whom are practicing architects.SCI-Arc stores close to 600 TB of data, and one of the main challenges they are facing is the continuous growth of data, which is increasing 20 percent annually. Their prior back-up solution no longer met their needs as they missed their Service Level window. And with their data growth, this was only going to get worse. SCI-Arc’s primary export is the students’ revolutionary work, including animations and renderings that represent days of creativity and imagination by these students. This data must be kept safe and recoverable in any situation, because SCI-Arc needs a record of the files for accreditation and the students need their files for presentations, portfolios, and their careers. SCI-Arc chose to protect their data using Dell EMC Cloud DR hosted on AWS, ensuring that their data is kept safe and is recoverable at a moment’s notice.Dell EMC Cloud DR provides SCI-Arc the ability to protect on-premises workloads by securely and efficiently copying image backup onto AWS S3 for disaster recovery. In fact, Dell EMC is so efficient that they back up 90 percent of SCI-Arc’s VMs in one hour and have slashed their backup windows from 36 hours down to three. In the event of a disaster, their cloud DR strategy built on Dell EMC Cloud DR offers rapid recovery and three-click failover, two-click failback, and the workloads can be run directly in AWS or recovered to VMware Cloud on AWS.By deploying DR in this innovative manner, Dell EMC Cloud DR enables organizations to take advantage of the agility and cost effectiveness of cloud object storage. Resources in the cloud are spun up only when the primary data center isn’t available and decommissioned when they are no longer needed – a truly elastic environment. This is much more cost-effective than having hardware constantly up and running within the public cloud.center_img Session ID: 2021-02-25:57feedb17dd2c961dbbb897c Player Element ID: vjs_video_3 OK Close Modal DialogBeginning of dialog window.

first_imgPeople swarm outdoors in the spring to garden, grill out or have fun in the sun. But this can become prime times and places for insect attacks, says a University of Georgia bug expert. “Insect encounters don’t usually result in human injury, and most insects should be left alone,” said Elmer Gray, a UGA Cooperative Extension entomologist. “Eliminating areas where insects develop and hide near your home and properly applying pesticides if necessary will help keep most stinging and biting pests away.”That stings!Social insects, such as bees, wasps, hornets and ants, develop colonies that can house a dozen or up to thousands of individuals. These social insects can inject venom when they sting. “The social bees, wasps and hornets are a greater stinging threat than the solitary pests because they will attack in large numbers if they perceive the nest is in danger,” he said.While most individuals aren’t aggressive, Gray says all can sting if disturbed or handled.For most people, a single sting causes pain, swelling and joint stiffness that can last a few minutes or for one or more days. However, some people develop more dramatic reactions where swelling may involve an entire arm or leg, last several days or require hospital treatment. Last fall, a man in Doughtery County died following an attack by Africanized honeybees. “If a swarm of bees is seen, it is extremely important to avoid disturbing them,” Gray said. “If attacked by a swarm of bees, run away from the attack site to a building or car. Some bees will follow you inside, but do not go back outside of your shelter, as there are always more outside. If you can’t get away from the attacking bees, cover your head.” Remove stingers by scraping with a firm edge like a credit card or fingernail. Seek medical attention. Social insects provide plant pollination and prey on pest insects. They shouldn’t be controlled unless they create a hazard to humans. If a nest is found around your home, apply an insecticide in the evening when the insects are at rest. “With the wind at your back and an escape route selected, aim the insecticide at nest openings in trees, bushes, under eaves, ground cracks and crevices in and around nest openings,” he said. “If possible, destroy the nest or seal the nest opening. Honeybees nesting in buildings will require professional hive removal.” Treat fire ant mounds right after rain, he said. Gently pour an insecticidal drench over the mound so that the mixture breaks the surface. Do not stir the mound. Use 1 to 2 gallons for the average 12- to 14-inch diameter mound. Granular and bait formulations can also be used.Shoo fly!Most people think houseflies are troublesome. But deer flies, horse flies, black flies and biting midges are more than annoying. They bite!”Deer and horse flies are strong fliers and a serious nuisance of warm-blooded animals and people,” Gray said. “The puncture from the large bladelike mouth parts and the saliva used in feeding can cause pain, swelling and itching.”Biting midges — also called no-se-ums, punkies or sand flies — are very small. Some can fit through a standard window screen. Often their bite is felt, but they are not seen. Welts and lesions may last for days.Biting midges are more of a problem around creek beds and swamps, Gray said. The larvae develop in damp soil. This is why homeowners in residential areas without standing water are less likely to be bitten.Black flies, or buffalo gnats, develop in fast-flowing rivers or streams. They are found in the piedmont and mountainous areas but can be numerous in lower portions of the state during wet periods. The saliva they inject causes swelling and soreness.”The most effective way to reduce exposure to flies is to treat skin with repellent,” Gray said. Look for a repellent containing DEET. “Concentrations of DEET up to 30 percent are approved for use on children and infants older than two months of age,” Gray said. “Concentrations of 10 percent will typically be sufficient to protect children under most circumstances, unless extreme pest populations are encountered.”The Center for Disease Control and Prevention approves picaridin, oil of lemon, eucalyptus and IR3535 as alternatives to DEET, but they are not approved for children under three.Clothing can be treated with permethrin to deter flies. Remember, too, that light-colored clothing may be less attractive than dark clothing to most biting insects.For more information, read Gray’s UGA Extension publication “Stinging and Biting Pests of People.”last_img read more

first_imgAs part of the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference, CUNA Mutual Group brought industry leaders and members together to explore three shifts in today’s American reality.Our Members Live event – now available to watch in this series of short videos – focused on how the changing faces of work, family and Gen Z are affecting members’ financial needs, and provided credit union leaders a deeper understanding of consumer preferences, attitudes and how they can reach more members in the future.Workplace and Career Realities are ChangingToday’s American workers have experienced corporate restructuring, consolidation, downsizing and layoffs in recent years, leading many to work for themselves as freelancers. In 2015, a third of the U.S. workforce was freelancing.1 By 2020, this number is expected to grow to more than 40 percent.2While self-employment has a lot of advantages, it doesn’t come without risk. Many freelancers worry about the rising costs of healthcare, saving for retirement and unpredictable income, which may contribute to 77 percent of hardworking Americans reporting that they could not come up with $5,000 for an unexpected need.1, 3Learn more by hearing how Ray Liberio and Armand Lockett approach finances as freelance workers.The American Family is Changing American family dynamics have changed dramatically in the last few years. A record number of Americans now live in multi-generational households with many of these families caring for both children and aging parents.4 According to the U.S. Administration on Aging, 65 percent of the elderly rely exclusively on family and friends to provide them with day-to-day assistance.5 Single-parent homes have increased significantly over time as well with a third of U.S. children now living with only one parent – up from just nine percent in 1960.5In addition, there are more than 8.5 million Americans who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.6 These individuals can be faced with unique financial needs, such as the expenses related to starting a family through surrogacy or adoption. A recent survey of 1,800 LGBT persons showed that 62 percent had concerns about being denied a home mortgage for orientation – not financial reasons. 6Learn more by hearing how Jamesetta Fousek’s family dynamics influence her financial needs.Gen Z is Emerging  From toddlers to college students, Gen Z is the newest generation and is emerging as a powerful force. There are nearly the same numbers of Gen Zers (82M) as Millennials (83M), and in fact, there are more Gen Zers than Baby Boomers (76M).7 Gen Z already has $44 billion in purchasing power and that is expected to grow.7 These kids – some young adults already – are tech-savvy, independent, mature, and ready to figure things out. They live in a 24/7 “smartphone” culture, and are in constant contact with each other.Media and market research companies have labeled Gen Zers as screen addicts with limited attention spans.8 A recent article published by the Fast Company suggests something different. While the research says this generation has about an 8 second attention span9 – note that’s less than a goldfish which makes it 9 seconds9 – Gen Zers will tell you that they have an 8-second filter. You’re either interesting in 8 seconds or less … or you’re not.Learn more by hearing from Gen Zers Kate Ballinger and Katie Berding.We Can Lead as a MovementFor credit unions, these changes are an opportunity to deepen member relationships by focusing on how best to serve members and their families, regardless of definition, age or career choice, and build an unmatched member experience for today, and more importantly, for generations to come. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Gerry Singleton Gerry Singleton is the Vice President of Credit Union System Relations for CUNA Mutual Group.

Tyra Banks channeled Jennifer Lopez during the most recent Dancing With the Stars episode.On Monday, November 9, the 46-year-old host opened the hit ABC show in a jungle print dress reminiscent of the iconic look that J.Lo. wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards. “What’s up America?” Banks said before strutting down the stage to Lopez’s song “Jenny from the Block.”- Advertisement – With this added stress, sometimes mistakes are inevitable. For instance, during the episode on October 26, she just barely avoided a wardrobe malfunction. “I had on sneakers for the first half of the show,” she said. “I had on these black disgusting sneakers that I hike in because my feet were hurting. The dress goes all the way to the floor. You can’t see my feet. So why the hell do I need to put on high heels?”However, when there was a costume change she nearly forgot to swap her kicks. “Then we forgot to put my fancy shoes on for the second [half of the show].

first_imgMundingburra homeowner Ben McCarthy, 28, with 10mth old puppy Beyonce’ exercising in their local park. Picture: Shae Beplate.LIVING in leafy suburbs could be better for your health, according to new Health Tracker findings released this month.The Health Tracker, by the Australian Health Policy Collaboration, found significant levels of health risk in many outer Townsville suburbs while residents in wealthier suburbs had lower levels of obesity, smoking and led more active lives.Suburbs where residents were the most physically active were North Ward, Townsville CBD and Mount Louisa, which showed the lowest levels of living a sedentary lifestyle at 58.2 per cent.Annandale, Douglas and Oonoonba followed a close second with 59.1 per cent. When it came to body size, North Ward, Townsville CBD and Mount Louisa were once again on top with only 59 residents considered overweight or obese. Townsville’s heaviest residents were found along the Northern Beaches with 70.5 per cent overweight or obese. Those conscious of second-hand smoking should consider living in Annandale, Douglas and Oonoonba with only 14.8 per cent of residents smokers compared with Condon, Rasmussen and Kelso which, at 24.4 per cent, account for Townsville’s highest level of smokers.AHPC director Professor Rosemary Calder, who co-ordinated the findings, said while individual wealth played a role in a person’s ability to live a healthy lifestyle, their environment also made a great difference.“Communities that are newer outer suburbs commonly don’t have good public transport so they are much less likely to walk from home to public transport and much more likely to go in a car,” she said.“In fact, the rates of car ownership in new communities are very high.“The ability to be active significantly affects the outcome of your options for walking, which are higher if you live by the seaside or in the “leafy suburbs” which by the use of the term we know are conducive to being outdoors.”The researchers also found that the better resourced the community, the better the environment and health outcomes.“You’re more likely to see private gyms and yoga classes in wealthier suburbs,” Prof Calder said.“In communities where there is less individual wealth, there’s much more likely to be fast food outlets than gyms. We know that there are children who cannot afford to ride to school because families can’t afford a bicycle and club sport is expensive with uniforms and membership fees.”Prof Calder said there was diversity in all suburbs but increased wealth and levels of investment in communities could vastly improve health in the outer suburbs.“Where there is increasing wealth, both at the individual and community level, there is likely to be increasing levels of health,” she said“Again much of that is about the environment. People don’t move in with greater income levels and just live, the whole community changes, it’s all interconnected.”SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE Lowest level % Mount Louisa, Townsville City, North Ward 58.2Annandale, Douglas, Oonoonba 59.1Hermit Park, South Townsville, Wulguru 62.3Aitkenvale, Cranbrook, Mundingburra 62.4 Highest level % Northern beaches, South Townsville 72.3Deeragun 70.3Condon, Rasmussen, Kelso 67.8Garbutt, Gulliver, Heatley, Kirwan East 66.8Bohle Plains, Kirwan West 65.1SMOKERS: Lowest level % Annandale, Douglas, Oonoonba 14.8Mount Louisa, Townsville City, North Ward 17.3Bohle Plains, Kirwan West 17.6Aitkenvale, Cranbrook, Mundingburra 19.4 Highest level % Condon, Rasmussen, Kelso 24.4Garbutt, Gulliver, Heatley, Kirwan East 23.7Hermit Park, South Townsville, Wulguru 22.3Deeragun 21.8Northern Beaches 21.2OVERWEIGHT OR OBESE ADULTS: Lowest levels % Mount Louisa, Townsville City, North Ward 59Annandale, Douglas, Oonoonba 60.5Aitkenvale, Cranbrook, Mundingburra 61.3Hermit Park, South Townsville, Wulguru 63 Highest levels % Northern Beaches, Townsville South 70.5More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020Deeragun 67.7Condon, Rasmussen, Kelso 67.5Bohle Plains, Kirwan West 65.2Garbutt, Gulliver, Heatley, Kirwan East 64.7OVERWEIGHT KIDS Lowest level % Northern Beaches, Townsville south 23.3Annandale, Douglas, Oonoonba 23.6Mount Louisa, Townsville City, North Ward 23.6Bohle Plains, Kirwan West 23.8 Highest level % Condon, Rasmussen, Kelso 28.7Garbutt, Gulliver, Heatley, Kirwan East 28Hermit Park, South Townsville, Wulguru 27.4Aitkenvale, Cranbrook, Mundingburra 27Deeragun 24.8RISKY ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION Highest level % Northern Beaches, Townsville South 23.3Hermit Park, South Townsville, Wulguru 20.2Condon, Rasmussen, Kelso 20.1Bohle Plains, Kirwan West 19.2 Lowest level % Annandale, Douglas, Oonoonba 16.3Garbutt, Gulliver, Heatley, Kirwan East 18.2Aitkenvale, Cranbrook, Mundingburra 18.4Mount Louisa, Townsville City, North Ward 18.8Deeragun 18.9 (SOURCE: Australian Health Policy Collaboration)last_img read more

first_imgScienceDaily 5 March 2014Having a higher income or education than your partner could be risky, as a higher socio-economic status than ones partner increases the chance of psychological violence and abuse. This applies to both men and women.  New research on violence and relationships does not support the stereotypical pattern of strong men in powerful positions who abuse their weaker, female partner. “Whenever power is unevenly allocated in a relationship the chance of physical and psychological abuse increases. And the abused partner is the one with the highest status,” says sociologist Heidi Fischer Bjelland. According to the sociologist this applies both to men and women. Bjelland is a PhD student at The Norwegian Police University College and she has previously carried out research on intimate partner violence in Norway. In her article En voldsom maktbalanse? En studie av relativ makt og forekomst av partnervold (“A fierce power balance? A study of relative power and intimate partner violence”), Bjelland presents her analysis of a survey carried out by Statistics Norway in 2003/2004. Bjelland has examined survey replies from 1640 men and 1791 women who live with their partners. The participants have answered questions relating to whether they have experienced physical partner violence such as strangling and flat hand slapping, and psychological abuse such as threats of physical violence, jealous behavior and freedom restriction.Both men and women with a higher status than their partner have an increased risk of experiencing psychological abuse or controlling partners, but women with a higher income than their partner also have an increased risk of experiencing physical abuse: “Their risk of experiencing both physical and psychological violence increases with the difference in income,” says Bjelland.Men also affectedThe study shows that men with a higher income or education than their partner have an increased risk of experiencing psychological abuse and control. However, men do not face the same risk of experiencing physical abuse.“Previous studies have looked primarily at physical abuse. They have also included some types of psychological violence such as control and threats of physical violence, but they have not distinguished these psychological acts of violence as a category in itself. When I distinguish between psychological and physical acts of violence, the psychological factor is becoming much clearer and the results become more nuanced,” says the researcher.One of the finds particularly surprised Bjelland: “The fact that men with a higher socio-economic status than their partner have an increased risk of experiencing abuse in their relationships was very surprising, since it conflicts with international studies within the same field.” She emphasizes the Norwegian gender equality as a possible explanation. “Perhaps this indicates that, in today’s Norway, women won’t accept being without power as a result of having a lower socio-economic status than their partner.” “On the other hand, few studies have examined men’s risk of abuse earlier, which may be an explanation as to why these finds are so new and surprising.” According to Bjelland, previous studies of intimate partner violence have often excluded men from the data material. “There has been a strikingly unbalanced focus on women and what consequences their experiences of intimate partner violence might have for them.”http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/03/140305084753.htmlast_img read more
