We showcased a lot of great products at CES 2018, but one display at the Dell Experience that especially caught the eye of Super Hero fans in attendance were the new costumes from Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp.”“One of the biggest additions in Ant-Man and The Wasp will be the world’s introduction to Hope van Dyne in her Wasp costume, especially with her now sharing the film’s title,” noted Joseph Aberl of MCU Exchange, a blog focused exclusively on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). “Thanks to one of our own attending CES, we got a great look at the costumes and some artwork.”While we were excited to have the costumes in our exhibit space at CES, we are even more excited to go to the world premiere of Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp” on June 25 in Los Angeles. You can keep up with highlights of the red carpet action on social media by following Dell on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.Viewers will also get a chance to see several pieces of Dell technology that play small roles in the film. However, what they might not know is that Dell technology also played a big role behind the scenes, helping to bring some of the film’s visual effects to life.Artists at the award-winning VFX studio DNEG had access to more than 300 Dell Precision workstations to edit and create the visual effects in the film – bringing the characters and places to life. From the moments of Ant-Man and The Wasp shrinking to an intricate lab scene featuring Ghost phasing in and out of walls – Dell technologies helped make these ideas reality.Dell EMC PowerEdge R630 rack servers with MD3460 RAIDs, and Dell EMC PowerEdge M1000e blade server enclosures and hundreds of Dell monitors also played a part in providing the massive computer power needed to bring this film to life.And, you didn’t hear it from us, but it looks like some Dell monitors will share screen time with the movie’s heroes. The new Dell G5 15 Gaming Laptop (right), makes an appearance in pivotal scenes. And fans can also find Luis, Ant-Man’s friend who runs their X-CON security company, carrying the beloved Dell XPS 13 laptop in the film.Everyone in the U.S. can set their eyes on these laptops and the movie’s titular Super Heroes when Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp” hits theaters on July 6. (Australians can see it a day earlier, India has to wait until July 13, and U.K. theatres will get it August 3.)

BACOLOD City – Residents of this city and province were told anew to observe minimum health standards as the two places remain under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. “Bacolodnons still have to take necessary health precautions under the MGCQ while it aims to eventually graduate into the ‘new normal’ while allowing some normalcy back into our community life,” Leonardia said in the directive. Minimum health standards would consist of mandatory use of face mask, physical distancing, proper washing of hands, and checking of temperature. Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson and Mayor Evelio Leonardia issued respective executive orders (EOs) on June 30 and July 1 to formalize the extension of the MGCQ until July 15. “Because of the rising number of COVID-19 cases in our country, there is still a need to place the province under MGCQ,” Lacson said. In this city, Leonardia issued EO 45 on Wednesday for “the second extension of the MGCQ in the City of Bacolod from June 30 to July 15”. According to EO 45, the “continuity of the MGCQ requires that Bacolodnons shall have to adopt some necessary lifestyle changes because the said deadly disease is still a scourge to the whole world and Bacolodnons”. In EO 20-28 released on Tuesday afternoon, Lacson reiterated his previous directives, EO 20-25 and 20-26, stating that these will staay in full force and effect. In Section 4, the order stated that “(a)ll persons/establishments violating the provisions of this EO, as well as the established health protocols issued by the Department of Health, the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, other agencies, and the Province of Negros Occidental, shall face appropriate administrative and/or criminal charges.” Similarly, the mayor also stated the continued enforceability of the previous EO 38 and EO 43 until July 15. EO 38 is “An Order Placing the City of Bacolod under MGCQ” while EO 43 is “An Order Extending the MGCQ in the City of Bacolod”. EO 20-25 is “An Executive Order Placing the Entire Province of Negros Occidental under MGCQ” from June 1 to 15 issued on May 31 while EO 20-26 is “An Executive Order Extending the Duration of the MGCQ over the Entire Province of Negros Occidental until June 30, 2020” issued on June 15. As of Wednesday, this province has 91 COVID-19 cases. As of Tuesday, Bacolod has 51 COVID-19 cases. (With a report from PNA/PN)
The 20th staging of Jamaica’s largest and most renowned road race/walk, the Sagicor Sigma Corporate 5k Run was launched last Thursday morning at the Spanish Court Hotel in New Kingston under the theme, “20 years of running for a purpose.”The race is scheduled for Sunday. February 18, 2018, beginning at 7:30 am.According to the Jamaica Observer, Sagicor, as the company did last year, has set a fund raising target of $50 million and has targeted all the funds raised to benefit the Spanish Town Hospital Neonatal Unit/Special Care Unit and the St Christopher’s School for the Deaf, the oldest residential school for the deaf in the English-speaking Caribbean.The patrons for this year’s staging are Olympian Usain Bolt, Miss Universe 2017 second runner-up Davina Bennett, and fitness coach and CEO of Dynamic Lifestyle Patrice J White.Bolt will be a patron for the event for the second time. He said he jumped at the opportunity to partner with Sagicor since one of the causes to benefit this year is very dear to him.“I was very happy when Sagicor approached me again to be a part of the Sigma run this year, especially because I personally experienced my godson being born prematurely, and for me, that was one of the biggest things, so when they came and told me the cause I said, ‘I am about this, I want to be a part of this’. I want to help as much as possible’.“If I can get a chance to really contribute and help Sagicor to raise $60 million it would be a big deal as I was there first-hand to see what my friend went through. What NJ (Nugent Walker) Junior went through was rough (as) he had to fly overseas for medical care.”For more details and registration forms, visit https://sagicorsigmarun.com/.
Now that there is little doubt about the existence of Ebola as it continues to claim more lives with thousands of confirmed, suspected and probable cases across the sub-region, authorities in Nimba County have halted daily marketing activities that take marketers from one town to the other.It is customary for sellers in rural areas in Liberia to attend market days during the week in designated towns.Marketers board trucks with their goods either in the early morning hours to get to market on time, or leave a day to in advance to sleep in the town in order to sell the next day.With the rapid rise in the Ebola death toll, however, the City Mayor of Sanniquellie, Mary Gonlepah, last week warned marketers via community radio stations not to go to Sanniquellie market until otherwise ordered.Mayor Gonlepah said it was her personal view that the virus gets transmitted through bodily contact; and the convergence of people in such a manner as “market day” has the propensity to spread the virus exponentially.“This is not to say people should not travel to Sanniquellie or marketing activity is totally stopped. We do not want marketers sit together on vehicles to come to the Saturday market as had been done in the past until the Ebola crisis subsides,” Mayor Gonlepah explained.At the same time, the City Mayor of Bahn (another town in Nimba), Angie Dopoe, has stopped the Wednesday market of that municipality, warning that any group going there for marketing purpose will face the consequences.In Saclepea, marketers residing there only go to the daily market, but people, without caution from the city authority, have resolved to stay away from the larger Tuesday market. As Ebola rages, many people are fearful and have taken precautionary measures of their own volition.In fact, marketers there no longer gather in the market building situated along the Ganta highway, but spread outside where wide spaces are provided so that people do not touch one another during transactions.However, out of town marketers in Ganta are not content with the decision by the city mayors although the evidence is clear.According to a footwear seller, who spoke on the local community broadcaster, the decision is hampering them as most of them do not have selling spots in the Ganta Market.The seller, who was later joined by other callers on the radio, claim that the decision by the city mayors is preventing them from conducting their businesses, making it difficult for them to feed their families. They are, therefore, calling on the Nimba authorities to reconsider their decisions.Meanwhile, villagers in the county are not taking the Ebola awareness for granted, now that so many have died due to denial.Reports gathered from local villages indicate that before a stranger or even a citizen of a village who has been away can be accepted back in that village, he/she must undergo a 21-day observation period, a community-instigated quarantine, before being allowed to interact with the community.Nimbaians swallow grinded cassava root (otherwise known as Gaygba or GB) as their second staple food, and they use their hands to dip it into the sauce to swallow.This is done together with other family members or friends and they all use the same sauce to dip their GB (gaekpa or bayekpo), but because of the message that Ebola gets transmitted through bodily contact, this custom is now halted, and each individual is only entitled to his/her own sauce, each eating from his/her own bowl.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champThat’s a huge change from an earlier era, when many Protestants ignored or actively opposed the holiday. But as it gradually became popular as a family celebration, churches followed their members in making peace with Christmas.The change didn’t happen overnight. Through much of the 19th century, schools and businesses remained open, Congress met in session and some churches closed their doors, lest errant worshippers try to furtively commemorate the day.“The whole culture didn’t stop for Christmas,” said Bruce Forbes, a religious studies professor at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. “Government went on as usual, business went on as usual, school went on as usual.”In researching his book, “Christmas: A Candid History,” Forbes discovered that major American denominations – Presbyterians, Baptists, Quakers, Methodists and Congregationalists – either ignored the holiday or actively discouraged it until the late 19th century.That rejection was rooted in the lack of biblical sanction for Dec. 25 as the date of Jesus’ birth, as well as suspicion toward traditions that developed after the earliest days of Christianity. In colonial New England, this disapproval extended to actually making the holiday illegal, with celebration punishable by a fine. CHARLESTON, W.Va. — As Christmas draws near, the Rev. Pastor John Foster won’t be decorating a tree, shopping for last-minute gifts or working on a holiday sermon for his flock. After all, it’s been 50 years since Christmas was anything more than a day of the week to him.He’s one of very few American Christians who follow what used to be the norm in many Protestant denominations – rejecting the celebration of Christmas on religious grounds.“People don’t think of it this way, but it’s really a secular holiday,” said Foster, a Princeton-based pastor in the United Church of God who last celebrated Christmas when he was 8.His church’s objection to Christmas is rare among U.S. Christians. Gallup polls from 1994 to 2005 consistently show that more than 90 percent of adults say they celebrate Christmas, including 84 percent of non-Christians. Some 322 years later, early member Samuel Sewall might be surprised to see his congregation – today known as Old South Church – proudly displaying a decorated Christmas tree outside the church.“We think it’s cheerful and seasonal,” said Nancy Taylor, senior minister of Old South, one of America’s most venerable congregations, counting among its past worshippers not only Sewall but Benjamin Franklin and Samuel Adams.Now part of the United Church of Christ, Old South not only has a Christmas tree, but encourages its 650 or so members to exchange Christmas presents – although the focus is on charitable donations and service, rather than shopping.“We are the descendantZZTOs of the Puritans and Pilgrims, but we have loosened up a lot since then,” Taylor said. “We have changed and adapted, and I think that’s part of why we haven’t died out.”Like Sewall’s successors, the mainline Protestant churches have learned to accommodate Christmas. But the change came from the pews rather than the pulpit.Christmas benefited from a 19th century “domestication of religion,” said University of Texas history professor Penne Restad, in which faith and family were intertwined in a complementary set of values and beliefs.Christmas became acceptable as a family-centered holiday, Restad said, once it lost its overtly religious significance.At the same time, aspects of the holiday like decorated trees and gift-giving became status symbols for an aspirant middle class. When Christmas began its march toward dominance among holidays, it was because of a change in the culture, not theology.“In America, the saying is that the minister follows the people, the people don’t follow the minister,” Restad said. “This was more of a sociological change than a religious one. The home and the marketplace had more sway than the church.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

A group of young students from Donegal have travelled to Dublin to meet with Independent TD for Donegal in a bid to hand over a petition of nearly 300 signatures to the Minister for Climate Action. Before meeting the Minister the students watched from the Dáil gallery as Deputy Pringle spoke during Leaders’ Question praising the climate-conscious students.He said “I urge you Taoiseach to face the students visiting from Donegal and tell them that you are committed to the young generation who will suffer the brunt of climate change, a generation which has been coined as the voiceless future of humanity”. Afterwards Deputy Pringle and the students met with Minister Bruton where he received their petition of 300 signatures of students and staff from all over Donegal.The students asked that he take heed of their list of demands from students in Ireland for the Government to act now.Speaking on the students’ visit, Deputy Pringle said “I am delighted to host such a courageous group of young people from Donegal. I believe the students’ visit today has done much to reveal the quality of leadership that currently exists on the issue of climate change.“All the students’ campaigning is being done against a strong tide of resistance from Fine Gael and Government on the issue of climate action. The Government could take a large leaf out of their book and see what real leadership and commitment can look like” concludes Pringle.

How OKR’s Completely Transformed Our Culture What Nobody Teaches You About Getting Your Star… How to Get Started in China and Have Success Need funding for your startup? Don’t load up your PowerPoint with nifty charts showing all the users your online service has grabbed. Venture capitalists are no longer impressed. These days, investors want to hear about the revenue you’re generating, not the traffic.“There have been a lot of companies that had a lot of users and didn’t make as much money as they should have, so investors are reevaluating,” explains Naval Ravikant, founder of the startup advice site Venture Hacks and the investor-entrepreneur matchmaking site AngelList. “This became most apparent in the Facebook app craze, when lot of top-ranked Facebook apps showed 60 million or 100 million users but ended up being worth almost nothing. Even Facebook hasn’t been able to monetize as well as Wall Street was expecting.”Revenue RulesThe new generation of billion-dollar internet companies is built on revenue. Businesses like Airbnb, GitHub and Dropbox all have plenty of users. But much more important, those users generate serious cash flow.The flipside is that even companies without massive traffic can now attract intense investor interest – if they have real revenue. “A company like Uber doesn’t have a ton of users but they’re making gobs and gobs of money with their high-ticket mobile car service,” Ravikant says. “They have huge margins and high-frequency repeat business.”You Now Need 20 Million EyeballsUsers do still figure into the equation when VCs evaluate an Internet startup. But the bar keeps rising. The new thinking, as outlined in a recent blog post by Chris Dixon: 10 million is the new 1 million. And a few years from now the benchmark for consumer Iinternet startups could be 100 million.“Think about it,” Ravikant said. “Instagram reached 80 million users with only six employees. User stats can get blown out very quickly. But VCs are starting to adjust. There are a number of companies that have come along recently that have generated huge user-number spikes – but either those numbers are not sustainable or they’re not reflective of engagement underneath or they’re not monetizable.”Take Socialcam, for example. It has a lot of users but can those folks be monetized? Autodesk, which paid $60 million for the video sharing app, will have to figure out the answer. “Eyeballs will always be a proxy stat to get to valuation,” predicts Ravikant, who founded Epinions and [Vast](http://www.vast.com/. “But if you give it a long enough timeline, people will learn to game proxy stats. But they can’t game profits.”Turns out that many of the highest-usage consumer Internet companies also have the thinnest and least monetizable engagement, which is a big disincentive for investors.Early Revenue Matters MostSo a lot of Internet startup founders now emphasize early revenue when they pitch VCs.“That’s for two reasons,” Ravikant says. “First, you can move the needle more on early revenue than you can on early users. If you have a product that’s not getting picked up by the marketplace, getting to 5 million users can seem like an impossible problem. But if, say, you need $20,000 a month in revenue, you can do that just by picking up four or five big customers. Second, a lot of companies have such a low burn rate that if you can get revenue quickly you can get to break-even and sustain yourself much longer. You can do $10,000 in revenue with just four or five really impassioned customers.”Customers… what a concept!Eyeball image courtesy of Shutterstock. tim devaney and tom stein Tags:#start#Venture Funding China and America want the AI Prize Title: Who … Related Posts
