Circles Around The Sun To Play Third-Ever Live Show, With Railroad Earth

first_imgChris Robinson Brotherhood guitarist Neal Casal‘s Circles Around The Sun project had added another date to their schedule. The group has announced it will play Railroad Earth‘s Horn o’ Plenty Getaway at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA Thanksgiving weekend (Nov. 25th and 26th).As you may or may not know, Casal, joined by fellow CRB brethren keyboardist Adam MacDougall, drummer Mark Levy and bassist Dan Horne, created the setbreak music for the Grateful Dead‘s Fare Thee Well shows at Chicago’s Soldier Field last summer. With plenty of positive feedback after the Dead shows, it prompted the group to release Interludes For The Dead in proper album format.After playing their first official live performance at Lockn’ recently, the group announced a show at Brooklyn Bowl on Nov. 23rd.Tickets for RRE’s Plenty O’ Horn Getaway can be purchased here.

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

Fog will continue from Monday into Tuesday.After it clears up Friday, the forecast calls for a mostly sunny Saturday and Sunday with the good weather continuing into Memorial Day on Monday.last_img read more

Scientists Study Invasive Species To Track Chemical Contamination In The Great Lakes

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAlpena — Scientist from NOAA’s national headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland spent the week in the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, working with their peers to gather the invasive zebra and quagga mussels.Since the 1980s, these invasive species have made their way into the Great Lakes, endangering other species along the way. However, the mussels that are reeking havoc are also helping these scientist identify other potential problems in the Midwest and in the Great Lakes.“They’re very good sentinel organism for monitoring the uptake or possibility of uptake of chemical contamination in any type of biological organism,” said Senior Scientist Ed Johnson.Zebra and Quagga mussels have been devastating to their own bivalves, putting several types of native mussels.The scientist are part of a national monitoring program called “mussel watch.” The program started in 1987 and helps track chemical contamination through bivalves, organisms with an enclosed shell like oysters, clams, mussels, and scallops. Their work in the Great Lakes began in 1992. With help from the members of the NOAA-Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, divers collected zebra and quagga mussels to examine their biology and study the biological responses to determine if certain variations of chemicals are causing problems for other organism in that habitat.“We as organisms respond in many ways similarly to stress, including chemical stress,” said Johnson. “Why take a salmon or a trout when you can take an invasive mussel that serves the purpose in many ways as a better tool for monitoring because they don’t move.”The mussels will be used as the a clean site reference. Next week, the team heads to Milwaukee to study chemicals coming from the river and waste water outfall. They will be looking for chemicals from pharmaceuticals, hormones, therapeutic drugs, etc.Funding for this type of research comes from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The work is also supported by the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement which is a bi-national treaty between the United States and Canada.For more information of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, visit more information on the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, visit    AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Senior Center Working on New Greenhouse for Healthier Meal OptionsNext What’s Trending for June 8last_img read more
