The Nassau Coliseum Will Reopen In April With Major Renovations

first_imgThe beloved Long Island arena Nassau Coliseum closed down in 2015, with the promise of new ownership and major renovations. Well, that promise has been fulfilled, as the Coliseum has now announced it’s first post-renovation concert, a sure-to-be awesome evening with hometown hero Billy Joel on April 5th. Joel actually played the venue’s final show when it closed last year, bringing along Paul Simon, Kevin James, and Governor Andrew Cuomo for surprise appearances in front of an excited but emotional audience.Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, which runs the highly successful Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, will lead the charge on the venue’s grand re-opening. CEO Brett Yormark promised to take a similar approach with the new Nassau Coliseum, saying “[t]he first couple of months we really want people to sample all the different types of programming that will take place — whether it’s world-class concerts, obviously, boxing, MMA, family shows and the like. We’re really going to showcase the diversification of our programming mix and give people a lot to think about. That was pretty much how we opened Barclays Center, and we’re going to do the same out there.”The new-and-improved Nassau Coliseum will seat 14,500 for concerts, 13,500 for basketball games and 13,000 for hockey games. Interestingly enough, the venue is will be versatile in its ability to host events of all sizes, with different configurations ranging from 4,000 to 16,000 people, depending on the event. Another intriguing piece of information is the Coliseum’s new “All Access Pass” membership program, which provides subscribers with lower-level seats to every event at the venue, along with a VIP entrance and a private club in the arena.Tickets to Billy Joel’s show on April 5th can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com Friday, October 14th, with a pre-sale for American Express holders starting on Thursday the 13th.In honor of the venue’s reopening, check out a few clips from a few of the many classic concerts that took place at the old Nassau Coliseum. Included below are full sets from Pink Floyd, David Bowie, and the Grateful Dead, with some Billy Joel and Phish thrown in there for good measure. Welcome back Nassau Coliseum!

Cost of hormone-disrupting chemical exposure in Europe in billions

first_img Read Full Story Exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC) is estimated to cost the European Union more than €150 billion ($209 billion) a year in health care expenses and lost earning potential, according to studies by a team of 18 international researchers, including two Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health faculty. Conditions linked to the chemicals included lowered IQ, male infertility, diabetes, and obesity.The findings, published in a series of papers March 5, 2015 in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, were announced that day in Brussels and at the Society’s annual meeting in San Diego.“The shocking thing is that the major component of that cost is related to the loss of brain function in the next generation,” study co-author Philippe Grandjean, adjunct professor at Harvard’s T. H. Chan School of Public Health and professor of environmental medicine at the University of Southern Denmark, said in a March 6, 2015 article in the UK newspaper The Guardian. The study authors found the loss of brain function due to EDCs likely costs at least $146 billion per year. Treatment, special education, and other services for children with lower IQs, learning or behavioral disorders were included among the estimated direct costs. The largest cost was lifetime loss of income.last_img read more

The Industrial Edge: The Game has Changed

first_img“Massively disruptive,” “a game changer,” and “will redefine industries” are just some of the phrases used over the last year by market researchers to describe the potential of edge computing. According to Gartner, by the year 2025, 75% of all data will be processed at the edge.What implications does this have for companies designing solutions today? How have solution builders embraced edge computing now, and how are they shifting their business models to prepare for the expected influx of edge data processing needs in the near future?Massive opportunity with big dataFrom working with our OEM customers, I know that faster access to processed data is already opening new business models and driving innovation and opportunity across every industry. The rationale for this shift is clear. Increasingly, both OEMs and end users need to be able to process enormous amounts of data on site, giving them the power to make smarter decisions, faster. By embracing edge computing, these companies are seeing real results in reduced cost, latency and connectivity challenges for both themselves and their customers.Security solutions, AI platforms and billable servicesFor example, OEM customers such as BCDVideo are using edge technology to design security solutions for their end users, giving them the ability to process data locally instead of sending it across the network, where it’s more vulnerable. Others, like Kinetica, are designing AI platforms that can collect and analyze the volumes of edge data their customers need to process. OEMs are also developing new revenue streams, introducing new billable services to differentiate themselves from the competition and increase the stickiness of customer accounts.IT meets OT on the factory floorIt’s probably not a surprise to anyone familiar with the industrial industry, but we’re also seeing the Enterprise Edge evolve with platforms traditionally used in a datacenter now deployed on the factory floor. The production lines, where data is gathered, is also changing. In the past, edge devices would typically have been small PC-type computers. Now, we’re now seeing demand for ruggedized, long life systems that can run heavier workloads, like analytics, machine learning, vision systems and robotics.The result? OEMs are using edge technology to change how they are designing and manufacturing their own products, which in turn can positively impact their own customers in areas like cost savings and faster turnaround times.Managing IT infrastructure on the factory floorOEM customer, Rockwell Automation, is a great example. Rockwell serves a wide range of industries globally from wastewater and consumer packaged goods through to oil and gas. According to Rockwell (registration required), IT and OT convergence represents a challenge for many customers. Despite cyber security risks and the increased reliance on data and network infrastructure to enable manufacturing, there’s a shortage of skills and staff to manage IT infrastructure on the factory floor and optimize operations. Yet, ten minutes downtime can cost over $10k.In response, Rockwell worked with OEM Solutions to engineer a virtual, turnkey solution, designed on Dell PowerEdge XL servers for their customers, plus a range of managed services that help their customers meet their product schedules.The world’s first learning steel millIndustry leader, Big River Steel wanted to optimize operations and reduce waste at its $1.3 billion scrap metal recycling and steel production facility. Using edge compute, servers, storage plus an AI platform designed by our OEM customer, Noodle.ai, on Dell Technologies infrastructure, Big River Steel is now regarded as the world’s first learning steel mill, embedding AI and machine learning into its manufacturing processes.The result? Big River Steel has insights into all the factors responsible for quality variability and knows the optimal manufacturing input parameters. Importantly, the company has reported up to 50% reduction in steel yield strength variability and up to $10 million in savings. Market trendsI’ve shared some examples of edge computing but let’s look at the market research data. In a recent VDC survey of over 700 global product development decision makers, 42 percent are already deploying edge computing with 26% planning to do so within the next year. Interestingly, 36% say they’re investing in edge computing, specifically because of customer demand while around 20% of respondents say competitive pressure is driving this evolution.How does this translate into system deployments? Over 60% of respondents said they are now implementing additional remote monitoring and control within their industrial systems. Thirty-eight percent of organizations are enabling services to improve product lifecycle and inventory management, while 19 percent are introducing new, billable services.A world of possibilitiesWhat does this mean for the future? I believe the intelligent edge is the glue uniting IT and OT environments – the final piece of the puzzle, if you will. Over the next decade, I predict that every piece of industrial equipment will be fitted with an embedded or connected computer, allowing it to make intelligent decisions on its own. For our OEM customers, there’s huge opportunity to develop edge applications and enable software-defined functionality. We will see new, professional and billable services emerge with usage-based fees. Edge technologies will be all around us performing distributed computing across a multitude of devices in cities, factories, energy plants, and farms.Invest now in your future businessFrom an OEM and end customer perspective, increasing edge computing demands will accelerate the need for the right compute, connectivity and storage as well as more flexible hardware and software platforms. 2025 may still seem like the distant future, but the partnership and the technology choices you make now can and will impact the health of your future business.Give your business the extra edge – Dell Technologies OEM Solutions can help you design, deliver and support a wide range of customized industrial edge solutions.Listen to our recorded webinar, “Driving Industrial Innovation at the Edge” here.

Diversity Insight: Not intentionally inclusive = unintentionally exclusive

first_img continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Diversity, to me, is a mindset. We all bring diverse perspectives, experiences, lifestyles and cultures into the workplace. Such attributes as race and gender, along with how we were raised, all play an important role in the way we internalize our own experiences that form our perspectives.My goal, as the first VP/diversity and inclusion at $1.4 billion Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union, Chattanooga, Tennessee, is to help people realize why it is important to embrace diversity in the workplace.Managing for diversity ensures that all employees feel valued, supported and respected. For employees to achieve their full potential, credit unions must be intentional about creating a diverse and inclusive environment that meets the needs of every individual and provides opportunity for personal and professional growth. By supporting diversity and inclusion efforts, credit unions have the potential to achieve greater productivity, profit and company morale.last_img read more
