Catering industry charity Hospitality Action has recently signed three online affiliate deals, including one, appropriately enough, with a discount restaurant booking site. Bookings made through 5pm.co.uk’s co-branded version of their site will generate a donation to Hospitality Action. Indeed the online restaurant reservation system has forged links with a number of charities, and has set up co-branded versions of its site to facilitate fundraising and communication for the charities. “The system is simple,”, says 5pm’s director Ronnie Somerville, “restaurants place offers on the co-branded sites, users book these with the simple click of a button, and in turn we give a 10% royalty for every cover booked to the respective charity”. Advertisement With hundreds of restaurants up and down the country placing offers every day, recent research has shown that users tend to bookmark and return to the 5pm site every week. “This is why”, continues Somerville, “that charities love the communication space we provide at the top of the offers of the day”.In addition to Hospitality Action, current partners include National Trust for Scotland, Childline, Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, 5pm are also working as corporate friends of the Scottish SPCA.

Powering Scientific Research with Dell EMC and AMD

first_imgThe Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing at Oregon State University capitalizes on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with AMD processors in a highly heterogeneous HPC research environment.Researchers affiliated with the Oregon State University Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing (CGRB) are on a perpetual quest for scientific discovery. The CGRB facilitates genome-enabled and data-driven research in the life and environmental sciences at OSU and across the state to solve really big problems — like improving health, making better use of natural and agricultural resources, understanding our global environment, and developing new bio-based products and energy sources.In today’s era of ever-bigger data, this kind of research invariably requires leading-edge computational power, which the CGRB delivers to its users via a continually evolving high performance computing environment. This highly heterogeneous environment includes all kinds of Dell EMC products, including multiple server models with AMD EPYC™ processors, along with many legacy servers based on AMD Opteron™ processors. Overall, AMD-based systems from Dell EMC account for about 70 percent of the CGRB’s server infrastructure.So why the big focus on systems from Dell EMC with AMD processors? In a recent Dell EMC case study, Christopher Sullivan, assistant director for biocomputing at the CGRB, cites several reasons. Let’s walk through some of the big ones.VersatilityFor starters, the CGRB likes the “outstanding configuration flexibility” and “adaptable architecture” of the Dell EMC PowerEdge™ R7425 server, Sullivan says. These characteristics allow the CGRB to tailor the system to the needs of diverse workloads — from quantum mechanical simulations and workloads that involve gene expression and meta-genomics to studies of species diversity in tropical forests. These workloads typically run on PowerEdge servers that incorporate AMD EPYC 7601 and 7551 processors.PerformanceIn applications in which the memory-to-thread ratio is important, the AMD EPYC processors are incorporated in systems with a terabyte of RAM, varying amounts of solid-state disk and fast 40Gb networking cards.“The memory-to-thread ratio is super important, and that is how we keep the systems hopped up,” Sullivan says. With some of these threaded workloads, the CGRB found that the AMD EPYC processor greatly outpaced the performance of Intel processors, according to Sullivan.ReliabilityReliability is another important factor in the selection of Dell EMC hardware, according to Sullivan.“We test every piece of hardware, believe it or not,” he says. “Dell EMC is the only server that can hold up to the type of work that we are pounding on these boxes. Other boxes will fail, and we will end up with them down.”This legendary Dell EMC reliability is a huge value proposition for people whose research depends on the availability of the HPC systems that are running their workloads.The bottom lineFor the CGRB, the big value-add that comes with Dell EMC hardware is more uptime and great performance for the mission-critical systems that power the diverse research workloads the Center runs around the clock.“We look at our Dell servers as being crucial to our uptime,” Sullivan says. “They keep us going.”To learn moreFor the full story, read the Dell EMC case study “Revving up research.”Watch the webinar, “Forecast Calls for ‘EPYC’ Innovation and Discovery.”Learn more about Dell EMC PowerEdge servers and explore Dell EMC solutions for HPC and AI.last_img read more

NFL free agency rumors: Colin Kaepernick could be interested in playing QB for Dolphins

first_imgColin Kaepernick is still looking for a job.A source close to the former 49ers quarterback made it known he is interested in joining the Dolphins, according to a CBS Sports report. In his last NFL season, Kaepernick threw for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns. The 49ers finished 2-14. Tannehill struggled with his health in 2018-19, appearing in 11 games. He hasn’t played a full season in two years.The Dolphins finished last season 7-9, and finding a reliable starting quarterback could help them surpass that mark. NFL trade news: Dolphins deal Ryan Tannehill to Titans Reached out to source close to @Kaepernick7 and asked if he was interested in filling Miami QB vacancy. Was told “yes, he’s training hard and ready to play” could get interesting— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 15, 2019Miami traded last year’s starter Ryan Tannehill to the Titans on Friday, so it’s in the market for a new face under center.Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice in 2016. He opted out of his contract with San Francisco in March 2017 and has not found work in the NFL since. Related Newslast_img read more

Lightning players didn’t like Kenan Thompson’s playoff joke at NHL Awards show

Seniors Dennison, Trinidad grateful to Racela for Season 80

first_imgDennison had been the unquestioned emotional leader of the Tamaraws for Season 80 as he put up his best statistical year in his five seasons with FEU averaging 11.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.3 steals per game.And if Dennison stayed primarily as one of FEU’s main contributors, the same cannot be said for Trinidad. The Fil-Am guard was initially a starter for Racela but then fell out of the rotation midway through the season before regaining his spot in the starting five near the tail end of the eliminations.Racela even apologized to Trinidad for the way he bounced around the lineup, but the graduating Tamaraw was just happy Racela trusted him in every sense of the word.“He said I went through a lot, that he should be sorry, but I trusted him,” said Trinidad who had six points and two boards in his exit game. “I didn’t expect anything this season, I was just ready and because he’s our coach I knew I could trust him.”ADVERTISEMENT CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.
