Marie Hayes enjoy the fresh air on the Ocean City Fishing Club’s pier with President Paul Keuerleber during the Open House on Thursday, August 14.At the end of the 635-foot pier, visitors saw surfcasting demonstrations by past president Bill Daley and his grandson, Tyler Daley. Many visitors snapped photographs of Martin Z. Mollusk, mascot of the City and Regional Chamber of Commerce, who was at the pier as part of Ocean City’s Family Nights on the Boardwalk.Although many of the visitors came from all over the country, more than a few were local residents.“I was born and raised in Ocean City,” remarked one woman, “and this is the first time I’ve ever been on the pier. This is great.”Last year the Fishing Club held three Open Houses to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its founding. The largest number of visitors on any one evening had been 681 people.— News release from the Ocean City Fishing Club read more

Not Just Another G: The Next Generation

first_imgThis is the second installment in our series Not Just Another G, which provides insight into 5G and what it means to the service provider industry. Missed the first post? Catch up here.The next-generation 5G architecture is built around the realization that different services are consumed differently, and by different types of users. Thus, next-generation mobile access technology must have:A way to define those differences,A way to determine and place constraints so as to meet those differences, andA way to architect access methods that meet the goals of the different services that ride on top of the technology.It is to this end that the 5G technology has built-in support for what’s called “network slicing” – a fancy phrase to say that the network is sliced up, with each slice configured to meet the needs of a singular class of service.In the 5G architecture, for example, there is a slice designed to deliver common mobile consumer data. This slice delivers high throughput data consumers want access to, which may be things like pictures, videos, live video interactions, remote mailbox access or remote shared data vault access.Another slice is designed for what is called “latency critical” applications. Imagine a connected, self-driving, auto-diagnosing car of the future. The car, connected to 5G, will be the “new cell phone”. It will automatically make things happen so that the driver can choose to not be in control and enjoy life or get work done while commuting. This requires a fast, high-speed, reliable, always-available and latency critical network. The 5G latency-aware slice allows a network design that can make these guarantees. By the way, the car is just one of the many such latency-critical applications.Another slice of the network is designed to meet both the latency, and the capacity needs of the service. Consider the example of TeleHealth, a use-case where in a medical service provider is physically remote from the consumer. Many healthcare situations demand TeleHealth, which has seen only limited realization because a truly mobile, low-latency and capacity-aware network architecture has remained a challenge. All TeleHealth use-cases require:Interaction with no frame/audio drops,Atomic guarantees of delivery – if a command was sent, the network must guarantee the delivery of that command and the response back, andUbiquity – be a stranded climber on a remote mountain, or an inner-city youth who needs the help of a specialist in Mayo Clinic, the network must always be there to support the service.This new and innovative world requires a large amount of infrastructure. It requires an increase in cell stations, to which a multitude of end-users will be connected to in order to consume services. It requires compute, storage, and networking capabilities distributed across the edge of the network, enabling a service delivery platform running both network services and 3rd party application workloads. This edge platform coupled with differentiated classes of service provides new ways for Telcos to monetize the infrastructure and charge consumers.At Dell Technologies, we are focused on creating the best possible infrastructure elements that will help the creation of next-generation mobile access networks. Dell EMC servers are best-in-class and hold the biggest market share. Dell EMC storage is second-to-none, and offers all types and variations as needed to suit the goals of any point of presence in a 5G network. Dell EMC Networking gear brings it all together, in a self-aware, software-defined, declarative manner so that the network can adapt quickly to meet the demands of all the 5G slices.We are here to help our customers on the Journey to 5G.last_img read more

Riyad Mahrez misses penalty as Leicester held by 10-man Bournemouth

first_imgLeicester lost ground at the top of the Barclays Premier League as they began the new year with a goalless draw against 10-man Bournemouth at the King Power Stadium, with Riyad Mahrez missing from the penalty spot. The Bournemouth captain and Vardy chased after Danny Drinkwater’s through ball, and with Vardy winning the race, Francis made a sliding challenge, bringing down the Foxes man. Television replays suggested Francis got a touch on the ball, and he protested as much, but referee Andre Marriner brought out his red card and awarded the penalty. Bournemouth will feel some justice was served as Boruc, diving to his left, got two strong hands to Mahrez’s spot-kick. Eddie Howe’s team responded well to their numerical disadvantage. The introduction of experienced defender Sylvain Distin, for midfielder Harry Artur, helped as Bournemouth by and large kept Leicester at arm’s length for the remainder of the game. Leicester did have some chances, though. Substitute Shinji Okazaki sent a volley narrowly wide before Vardy glanced a header past a post in between two efforts by N’Golo Kante from outside the box. Ranieri’s team were to be frustrated though and are now without a win in three games. TWEET OF THE MATCH @GaryLineker: “Not quite sure how Leicester didn’t win, but credit to Bournemouth for a mightily spirited performance.” PLAYER RATINGS Leicester: Kasper Schmeichel: 6 Danny Simpson: 6 Wes Morgan: 7 Robert Huth: 7 Christian Fuchs: 6 Riyad Mahrez: 5 N’Golo Kante: 7 Danny Drinkwater: 7 Marc Albrighton: 6 Leonardo Ulloa: 5 Jamie Vardy: 6 Substitutes: Nathan Dyer: 6 Shinji Okazaki: 6 Ritchie De Laet: 6 Bournemouth: Artur Boruc: 8 Simon Francis: 6 Steve Cook: 7 Dan Gosling: 7 Andrew Surman: 7 Harry Arter: 6 Charlie Daniels: 7 Adam Smith: 6 Matt Ritchie: 6 Josh King: 7 Junior Stanislas: 7 Substitutes: Glenn Murray: 7 Sylvain Distin: 7 STAR MAN Artur Boruc – Made a good save to deny Vardy before keeping out the penalty. Organised his defence well and was always talking, especially when his team went down to 10 men. Earned his clean sheet. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Francis’ red card. It was a big call from the referee and it had a profound affect on the remainder of the game, although without it we would not have had the penalty drama involving Mahrez and Boruc. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Ranieri will be disappointed his team could not break down 10 men and keep the pressure on Arsenal. Of more concern to the Italian though will be that the goals have dried up for his free-scoring team. Leicester have drawn a blank in their last three matches. Eddie Howe will be delighted given the circumstances. Bringing on Distin proved a masterstroke after the red card and his experience and organisational skills were evident. Another good point for the Cherries. MOAN OF THE MATCH The penalty call. Such a big decision and replays suggested Andre Marriner got it wrong. But without the help of technology for such decisions, mistakes will continue to be made. WHO’S UP NEXT? Tottenham v Leicester (FA Cup, Sunday January 10) Birmingham v Bournemouth (FA Cup, Saturday January 9) Claudio Ranieri’s side ended 2015 level on points with leaders Arsenal, despite finishing the year with a defeat at Liverpool and another home stalemate against Manchester City. They dropped more points on Saturday despite playing for more than half an hour against 10 men following Simon Francis’ red card. That incident led to Leicester winning a penalty but Mahrez saw his spot-kick saved by Artur Boruc. Ranieri said this week he felt the Bournemouth game would be tougher than City’s visit, and he was not far wrong. The Foxes huffed and puffed and Jamie Vardy failed to find the back of the net for a fourth successive match as Leicester fell two points adrift of Arsenal at the Premier League summit. Mahrez had much of the King Power Stadium on its feet in the 10th minute when his spectacular overhead volley flew just over the crossbar. Shortly afterwards Boruc was quickly out of his goal to gather at Leonardo Ulloa’s feet and deny the Leicester striker. Bournemouth, now beaten just once in their last seven matches, saw a big chance go begging after quarter of an hour when Josh King glanced his header wide after Junior Stanislas had picked him out inside the six-yard box. It was Leicester’s turn to miss a sitter as the half-hour mark approached. Leading scorer Vardy controlled a mis-hit shot from Ulloa around the penalty spot but with only Boruc to beat he poked his shot against the inside of a post and the ball rebounded away. Stanislas and Dan Gosling were then guilty of scooping shots over the crossbar from good positions inside the penalty area. Back at the other end, Mahrez put in Vardy down the left-hand side of the box but the 15-goal striker missed the far post with his low effort from a tight angle. Further scoring opportunities came and went for Leicester at the beginning of the second half as a fingertip save from Boruc denied Vardy before captain Wes Morgan volleyed the ball over the crossbar from inside the six-yard box following a corner. For the first time in the match the momentum was firmly with one team and the pendulum swung further in Leicester’s favour in the 57th minute with the dismissal of Francis.
