  • Bob Weir Fills In For David Nelson For Three Nights In Alaska [Videos]

    first_imgIn the beginning of March, Bob Weir announced that he would be stepping in for David Nelson for three nights in Alaska with the David Nelson Band, in light of Nelson’s colon cancer diagnosis and cancellation of several dates of the tour. The sold-out shows, which happened this weekend in Girdwood, Alaska, also saw Katie Skene take the stage, in addition to Barry Sless, John Molo, Pete Sears and Mookie Siegel of the David Nelson Band.Across the three nights, the David Nelson Band opened the shows sans guests before vocalist Katie Skene would come out for a few tracks with them. Afterward, Bob Weir would take over for a handful of acoustic songs, sometimes solo and sometimes with Skene, before the David Nelson Band would return and join Weir to close out each performance. You can check out a couple of videos from this past weekend’s Alaska run below.“Dark Star”[Video courtesy of Rah B Garcia]“Walkin’ Blues”[Video courtesy of dzarcone]last_img read more

  • CSI Updates and Call to Action (for You!)

    first_imgWe have certainly come a long way since the 12-Factors declared that backing services should be attachable or connectable and make no distinction between local and remote resources. Famously a great meme sprung up sometime later declaring that stateless apps were a hoax. Stateful apps are of course the most popular, and arguably the most valuable to one’s business, so I always find it odd when people talk about the power of containers without mentioning the footnote that stateful apps are difficult to operationalize. After all, the eco-system supporting these apps is currently splintered between Docker, Mesos and Kubernetes. Now, with the advent of the Container Storage Interface (CSI), we as a community are on the verge of solving this discrepancy.The Container Storage Interface (CSI) – a PrimerThe Container Storage Interface (CSI) is a universal storage interface (effectively an API) between container orchestrators and storage providers that will allow consistent interoperability between the two to help drive container adoption. Container orchestrators who adopt CSI can basically leverage any storage provider, cloud or otherwise. CSI enables the storage providers to provide storage services to any container orchestrator that implements the specification as well as a diverse range of storage services for any container orchestrator. The current fragmentation introduced by different interfaces maintained by different platforms is then eliminated. For the user, this means that one can count on a consistent and reliable user experience regardless of which storage provider is leveraged.CSI – What’s NewTwo new CSI drivers have been released for Dell EMC ScaleIO (csi-scaleio) and vSphere (csi-vsphere) bringing early support to a couple of key on-premise platforms. The ScaleIO driver facilitates container environments to leverage ScaleIO high performance software-defined storage services for bare metal environments, thus enabling container adoption and easing the path to leveraging containers for persistent applications. The vSphere driver implementation enables stateful cloud native applications on all vSphere supported storage vendor ecosystem including VMware vSAN – VMware’s HCI offering. In the near future, VMware’s Project Hatchway plans support for all leading Container Orchestrators by leveraging this CSI driver.This is on top of the integration into the container platforms as CSI has already garnered support from two of the four major containerized platforms (Kubernetes and Mesosphere DC/OS) and work is also underway for the third (Cloud Foundry). Kubernetes, with contributions from {code} and others, has support for CSI in their 1.9 release. Mesosphere’s DC/OS is developing support for CSI with a planned early release at the end of 2017.But, an end-to-end solution won’t be complete without storage platform drivers. Three more general CSI storage plugins (csi-nfs, csi-blockdevices, csi-vfs) were released in the DockerCon EU timeframe. This represented the first three native CSI storage drivers and opened the market for more storage platform support, while also functioning as a blueprint for contributors looking to create CSI drivers. With the newest CSI plugins, there are now 5 CSI plugins plus 12 supported storage plugins from REX-Ray.There is still plenty more work to be done. For example, support for CSI in Go, called GoCSI, has provided the basis for development for some of the first native CSI drivers. These kinds of tools and frameworks make implementations much simpler and tend to help with adoption. Similar support for other languages like Python and even Java would further its adoption.With supporting implementations on both the storage and container orchestrator side, the CSI specification is pre-1.0 and still a work in progress thus feedback from others implementing it on both sides is required if CSI is going to be a sustainable solution moving forward.CSI Needs YouThe easy part has been getting the COs on board since there are relatively few COs compared to the large number of various storage services. That being said, it is important that storage vendors take note of these developments and have a plan to build CSI drivers and support CSI with their storage products if they wish to be relevant to the cloud-native user of the future.Where You Come In As an individual your awareness and support of this project is important to its success. CSI is on the right track, but it needs everyone in the community and industry to dispel the myth that stateful applications in containers isn’t a valid architecture.The community also needs people to deploy and test the CSI architecture in real environments to ensure it supports popular use cases. After all, if it doesn’t meet the needs of end users what’s the point?What storage drivers will be important to you? What are you using in your environment? CSI activities are documented in a Google group, there are Community Sync calls, and information from the calls is published in the group for anyone to read. Join in these activities, this is your opportunity to make your voice heard.CSI – In SummaryWith shifts towards microservices and cloud native architectures, I do believe adopting and operating these new architectures being defined in CSI will be part of your strategy. This is something that is materially different, something that is truly an improvement over the past, and solves the stateful storage problem in an elegant way. This is not only an important step forward, but required as you rely on access to data while working in your container environment.Reading ResourcesThe Container Storage Interface – according to Josh by Josh Bernstein the Container Storage Interface Project by Josh Bernstein of the CSI Spec by Kendrick Coleman Compatibility to Container Storage Interface (CSI) Plugins – New Features in REX-Ray 0.11.0 by Kendrick Coleman v0.10 Delivers CSI Validation, 3 Additional Drivers, and More Enhancements by Kendrick Coleman A Framework for Efficient Service Architectures by Vladimir Vivien opinions of Dell and Dell authors are those of Dell only.

  • Students discuss process, benefits of planning dorm dances

    first_imgCourtesy of Brigid Walsh Students hold letters spelling out the name of their dorm, Walsh Hall, at Walsh Hall’s “Out of this World” dance.Sophomore and Dunne Hall dance commissioner Zachary Spitzer said many students invest hard work into organizing the dances.“I think the big thing that some people don’t realize — I know I didn’t necessarily realize it when I first signed up — is that planning dances takes a lot of work,” he said. “It’s not an easy thing in the slightest.”The most challenging part of planning, Spitzer said, is simply getting started. Making important decisions such as the date, venue and theme takes time.“You might think ‘Okay, just pick a venue, pick a date, and you’re good to go’ or something like that,” he said. “Instead, there’s a lot of stuff you have to keep in mind.”The date is always chosen first — sometimes as early as the end of the previous school year — often by the hall’s president and vice president, not the dance commissioners, he said.But once the date is set, the commissioners take over in deciding all the details that make a dorm dance successful.For instance, “venue-hunting,” Spitzer said, can be difficult because many dances occur on the same nights, so multiple dorms are vying for the same location.“If you’re doing it on a day that happens to have a lot of SYRs, you have to be able to plan quickly and decide what venue you want,” he said.Commissioners send venue requests to the Student Activities Office early in the year, he added, especially if they want a popular location such as Jordan Hall.This year, Pasquerilla East Hall’s SYR will take place under a tent on North Quad. One of dorm’s dance commissioners, sophomore Maddie Stanton, said part of her job is handling unexpected details, such as bathrooms, music and lighting.But a more exciting element to plan, she added, is the dance’s theme — a task for which dance commissioners will often consult the rest of their dorm.“We always try to get the input of the dorm,” Stanton said. “We’re ultimately able to decide what’s going to happen, but we definitely listen to the dorm.”Pasquerilla East Hall’s commissioners sent out dorm-wide polls to vote on their theme, ND Dads and Middle School Fads, she said. It began as one student’s idea and gained popularity by word-of-mouth before being officially voted as the theme.“Someone in our dorm came up with it,” Stanton said. “We didn’t automatically decide on it. We really liked the idea, but in order to get everyone’s opinion, we sent out a poll.”Dunne’s commissioners likewise listen to their dormmates. Spitzer said he thinks everyone should have the opportunity to play a role in the planning.“I feel like the SYR is much more of a dorm-involved event in regards to the fact that the dorm should help decide how it’s run,” he said.Student involvement might affect how popular SYRs are among students.“It’s highly promoted in our dorm,” Stanton said. “It’s a really big sense of community and, for that reason, a lot of people like to go.”For both Stanton and Spitzer, seeing the final product of their hard work is their favorite part of planning dorm dances.Stanton said it’s fun to see people get excited about something she’s been excited about for months.“When you go to the dance, you’re excited at the last minute,” she said. “But I’ve been planning this for a long time.”Spitzer said he’s looking forward seeing all his hard work pay off.“Easily for me, the most fun part is just watching it all come together,” Spitzer said. “It’s a very satisfying feeling.”Tags: Dorm Dances, Pasquerilla East, Student Activities Office, SYR As the semester approaches fall break, students are stepping into the swing of dorm dance season.last_img read more

  • Thumbs Up! Sierra Boggess & Julian Ovenden Lead an Enchanted Evening

    first_img Star Files The halls were alive with—oh, you know—on October 9, as Carnegie Hall welcomed Sierra Boggess and Julian Ovenden to the stage for the New York Pops’ opening night, My Favorite Things: The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein. The set list from music director and conductor Steven Reineke was perfectly structured, with the 33rd season opener spoiling attendees with rich melodies, soaring voices and a chance to visit an entire iconic cannon in one night. Ovenden, who served as a last-minute replacement for Steven Pasquale, appeared unfazed and charming, his sultry tenor to “Edelweiss,” providing a sneak peek to what ITV audiences might expect later this year in the U.K.’s new live telecast of The Sound of Music. Boggess was just as entranced as the audience; during her performance of “A Wonderful Guy” from South Pacific, the Audience Choice Award winner glided across the stage in adoration, beaming at Reineke and the musicians between verses. During duets, their chemistry permeated the venue, and when the pair joined forces with the Essential Voices USA choir for “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” the impact was particularly powerful. All in all, the evening was a perfect start to the Pops’ 2015-16 season! View Commentscenter_img Sierra Boggesslast_img read more

  • Salah, Messi, CR7 up for Globe award

    first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says UCL: Benfica kicked out by player who left club one week earlier + other results MultiChoice unveils sport channels, content line-up Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been named among the four finalists of the 2019 Best Men’s Player of the Year Globe Soccer Award. Salah was initially nominated for the award back in October with Sadio Mane, Cristiano Ronaldo, Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk, Bernardo Silva, and Lionel Messi. However, the list of nominees has now been shortened to just four names as Salah made the final cut along with Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Virgil van Dijk. The 27-year-old had an incredible year with Liverpool as Salah won the UEFA Champions League title in June following a 2-0 victory over Tottenham. Two months later, a win over Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup added another trophy to Salah’s outstanding season. The former Roma man was also close to winning the Premier League with Liverpool, but the Reds ended their league campaign a point short of rivals Manchester City, who won the title with a tally of 98 points. Despite missing out on the Premier League title, Salah still managed to claim the Premier League Golden Boot award for the second consecutive season. It’s worth noting that Salah was also nominated for the 2019 Ballon d’Or award recently, but the winger finished fifth in the rankings as Lionel Messi claimed the award earlier this month. Since joining Liverpool from Roma in 2017, Salah has made a total of 126 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 84 goals and assisting another 35 in all competitions.Tags: Cristiano RonaldoGlobe AwardGlobe Soccer AwardMohamed SalahUEFA Champions Leaguelast_img read more
