× JERSEY CITY – U.S. Senator Robert Menendez made an appearance at the opening of the Golden Door International Film Festival (GDIFF) on Sept. 20 in support of the festival’s philanthropic mission of raising awareness about autism.GDIFF, founded by Jersey City native actor Bill Sorvino, was recently selected by Movie Maker Magazine as one of the 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee in 2018. The festival is known for glamorous red carpet events and for bringing the best of independent filmmaking to audiences, along with its mission to raise autism awareness through cinema.This year, GDIFF will screen more than 200 movies at venues throughout Jersey City over four days, from Thursday Sept. 20 through Sunday Sept. 23.Thousands of people attended the opening red carpet gala kick off at the Jersey City Landmark Lowe’s Theatre on Sept. 20, which presented the feature film “The Undiscovered Country,” and a film short called “Nightingale.”Menendez is considered a key ally in an effort by Golden Door and other film groups to get state incentives to bring film production back to New Jersey. Bayonne and Fort Lee are historically two of the locations where American film making got its birth.
Babies may not be able to fully understand what’s going on when they’re video chatting, according to an expert from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.Babies “are able to recognize voices, recognize patterns,” said Michael Rich, associate professor in Harvard Chan School’s Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences and founder and director of the Center on Media and Child Health, in a February 4, 2016 interview on the show “Here & Now” on WBUR. “The question really becomes when they are able to decode that pattern of light and darkness on a two-dimensional screen as grandma’s face or whatever.”Infants typically rely heavily on their senses—“Everything goes in their mouth; they taste it, they smell it, they touch it,” said Rich—but video chatting is a very sterile experience, and some babies may not like it.Rich suggested using video chatting services like FaceTime or Skype “when grandma is now 600 miles away and you’re not going to see her for a while.” He said it’s also important “for the grandparents to establish themselves as real, three-dimensional, living and breathing people before they start the video chatting because otherwise they’re just an image on the screen. So they’re the same as Fred Rogers or Elmo.” Read Full Story
Yesterday in London our market leading flash storage portfolio took a Quantum Leap forward! First, we announced a major update to our flagship high-end storage array – the VMAX All Flash – setting a new high bar for capacity and efficiency with advanced data services. Not content with this, we went on to change the flash storage game altogether with the introduction of DSSD D5. We believe DSSD is a new category of storage ideally suited to the new world of analytics and in-memory databases. These new additions to our already powerful flash portfolio, promise to make 2016 “The Year Of All Flash For Primary Storage”.Why is this important? Data volumes are continuing to increase and businesses are under pressure to process that data in a timely fashion. Processing power has steadily increased according to Moore’s Law – doubling every couple of years. But storage has not kept up … until the advent of flash (or Solid State Drive’s) several years ago. Today, flash has reached the point where it is more cost effective to deploy than high performance hard drives. We knew this day would come and have worked tirelessly over the past year to optimize the VMAX for all-flash deployments while still providing the world class data services our customers know and love. This enables organizations to modernize their data center infrastructure and seamlessly run their mission critical applications at a speed and a price point unimaginable several years ago.But the story doesn’t end there. The biggest challenge facing most of our customers today is one of digital transformation. The world’s leading companies are moving quickly to modernize their business by taking their services online or creating smart devices to participate in burgeoning “Internet Of Things”. We believe companies will collect 1000x more data than ever before and will be under pressure to analyze that data in real time to seek competitive advantage. These new requirements break traditional infrastructure and pave the way for a new approach. This is why we created DSSD D5. D5 is fast. How fast? Fast enough to analyze an entire day’s worth of stock market data. Fast enough to help banks stop fraudulent credit card transactions dead in their tracks. Fast enough to help analyze aircraft engine data during maintenance windows to help them fly more efficiently. Fast enough for businesses not to miss an opportunity to enrich the consumer experience because their infrastructure couldn’t keep up with their businessWhy Go “All Flash For Primary Storage” Now? It’s very simple. Offering all flash arrays for the majority of data center use cases simply makes economic sense. We’ve reached the point where it can cost less to store data entirely on flash rather than performance hard drives. We have a market leading all-flash portfolio – at the high end we have had a record year in 2015 selling well in excess of $1BN in only its’ second year in the market. To complement XtremIO we now have the VMAX All-Flash providing huge scale in terms of capacity, ports and devices, world class data services and support for file, mainframe and i-Series environments. In the mid-range we continue to offer VNX in all-flash configurations for general purpose mixed block and file workloads. “With all of these additions to our flash storage portfolio, there should be virtually no data center use case we cannot handle!Can I Get It In Converged?There’s no better way to modernize a data center than through converged infrastructure and we will be offering VMAX All Flash in the VCE Vblock 740, and DSSD D5 will be incorporated into the VCE converged infrastructure portfolio in the future..To learn more take a look at the VMAX All Flash and DSSD D5 spaces on emc.com.This release contains “forward-looking statements” as defined under the Federal Securities Laws.
