After Ithaca College student’s death, IC warns of fraudulent fundraising page

first_imgDavid Maley, director of public relations at Ithaca College, said in an emailed statement, “The GoGetFunding page is not affiliated with Ithaca College and we are neither the creator nor owner of that campaign. We have reached out to GoGetFunding to inform them of this and demand that this page be removed and any donated funds be returned to the donors, as it is not authorized by the Perkins family and we have no idea who created it.”The page on GoGetFunding.com had raised $50 as of 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 5.A false fundraising page on GoGetFunding.com. Ithaca College said the page is not affiliated with the college and has not been authorized by the Perkins family. (Screenshot)For people who do want to contribute, Maley confirmed that there is a legitimate GoFundMe page put together by colleagues of Enoch Perkins in the Office of Public Safety and is authorized by the family.According to the GoFundMe page, the donations will help with funeral expenses and other associated costs.“We know there are many people who love and care for the Perkins family and want to know what they can do to help them during this extremely difficult time. We are hoping this will ease some of the burden that the family is experiencing. Any donation is appreciated. The funds will go directly to the family,” a statement on the page reads.The legitimate page can be found here.Featured image: The image shown at the top of the story is from GoGetFunding.com and depicts the fraudulent fundraising page.

Bentley reflects on 9/11 lessons learned

first_img By Jaine Treadwell Latest Stories Published 11:00 pm Thursday, September 8, 2011 Email the author By The Penny Hoarder Skip Bentley praised the first responders who answered the call on 9/11 and on April 27 and those who now stand ready for any situation that arises.“We never know what might happen or when,” he said. “On 9/11, there was no such thing as ‘homeland security.’ But now Homeland Security is “home” and it is most important that we realize that we rely on our first responders at home when disaster strikes.“You can’t replicate a real disaster. But our first responders are preparing and practicing every day to be ready in the event of a disaster or emergency.”Jon Moss, director of the Governor’s Office on Faith-Based Initiatives, said that the legacy of Sept. 11, 2001 is a Legacy of Preparedness.And, that legacy will make a difference, if and when, disaster strikes again.Also participating in the 9/11 remembrance program were Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Troy University Chancellor; Dr. John Schmidt, Senior Vice Chancellor for Advancement and External Relations; Art Faulkner, director of the Alabama Emergency Management Agency; and Spencer Collier, director of the Alabama Department of Human Services.

You can never really be prepared for anything like that.”To make it through a disaster situation of such magnitude, there has to be a plan, a sense of urgency and an approach with great compassion.That was the way that Alabama responded when 60 tornadoes ripped though the state on April 27.“Whether it’s a man-made disaster or a natural disaster, you have to be prepared,” Bentley said. “The first responders did their job and they made my job easier. When you’ve got good people, they make the people at the top look good.” On the morning of September 11, 2001, Dr. Robert Bentley was seeing patients in his office when a nurse came in and said a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center tower.No one in Bentley’s office realized at the time that the world they knew was forever changed in those few hours on that bright, sunny fall morning.And, Bentley had no idea that, on the 10th anniversary of “9/11” that he would be the governor of Alabama who had guided his state through the worst natural disaster in its history.

Telecoms at the Edge Offers Huge Opportunity

first_imgWe’ve talked previously about the role Dell Technologies will play in 5G transformation and the huge opportunity that the combination of 5G, the edge and IoT will deliver to business but what about the telecom industry, which is at the very heart of that transformation?New services and incremental revenue streamsWhile the edge is just one individual component, its inclusion in the telecom network changes some important fundamentals. Effectively, the telecom network now becomes a mobile platform with radio, core and IT workloads all running on a common infrastructure, capable of providing new services and delivering incremental revenue streams. And so, while 5G will turbocharge the intelligent edge revolution, I believe that the edge will also drive 5G adoption and help to create new and revolutionary communications platforms.Dell Technologies and Intel recently commissioned independent research on this very topic, entitled ‘The Edge Opportunity’, which presents a huge range of exciting, new market opportunities for telecom players. I’ve highlighted just a few of these below along with some of my own observations. Video caching and transcodingFor example, for operators, who provide video-on-demand services, the edge is an obvious location to place content caches. Reducing the latency in streaming video is great in its own right but by keeping popular content close to the subscribers and end-users, you can also reduce bandwidth and preserve network capacity. Of course, this is not a new concept, but commoditization of infrastructure supporting 5G will certainly simplify implementation directly into the mobile network.ComplianceAnother good example is copyright enforcement, which comes into play during concerts, plays and sports events when members of the audience are prohibited from transmitting the video via their cell phones. In this scenario, an edge application could either disable the upstream transmission completely or reduce the resolution to make the transmission compliant. With new data privacy laws, some data has to reside in a particular geography. Edge applications can enforce these laws, and add value by processing the data locally, within the appropriate jurisdiction.Virtualized Radio Access NetworksGiven the location of edge platforms, elements of virtualized 5G Radio Access Networks fit perfectly. For example, the BBU (Base Band Unit) as part of a CRAN solution can run on edge platforms, taking advantage of commodity platforms and flexible component configurations. Once commercialized, these virtualized networks will enable faster and more flexible introduction of new AI and IoT services.Third-party edge applicationsOn that note, I believe that the edge offers the perfect ecosystem to encourage third-party application developers to create new applications that can take advantage of the unique nature of the edge platform. Some of these new applications areas already enabling more immersive, real-time experiences like visual recognition and augmented or virtual reality. Other applications like gaming are also benefitting from the lower latencies near the edge, improving the real-time, online game experience.And of course, there are still environments with either intermittent, highly constrained, or no connectivity support. These include planes, mines, farms, oil rigs, trains, pipelines, wind farms, solar power plants, and power grids. Having a standardized edge platform in these places will undoubtedly enable new applications to be build out more cost-effectively.AnalyticsLooking at the bigger picture, IDC estimates a total of 41.6B IoT connected devices by 2025[i], including connected cars, medical devices, factories, hospitals, homes and cities. As that sprawl begins to happen, operators will need to figure out fast how to manage and optimize the network. In addition to analytics, I expect to see increased levels of automation with the ability to connect and disconnect devices remotely. Inevitably, we will also see machine learning and AI being deployed to help with security and the overall quality of customer service.Current trendsInterestingly, I am currently seeing two key trends in the marketplace. In large venues, like sports stadiums, some operators are converging elements of the network to create a single, consolidated platform for live replay instead of each operator installing its own infrastructure. Alternatively, some commercial companies like large enterprises, mining customers, airports and factories are actually installing their own private mobile network solutions for maximum security and bandwidth.Where is the Edge?This leads me to the next big question – what locations can be classified as the edge? Of course, there isn’t one edge, but multiple edges across a continuum but if we stick with the topic of sport, one of the most interesting examples has to be a venue like a sports stadium, where an edge application could, for example, allow the audience to watch a game from numerous perspectives.Imagine augmented reality, where you could use VR googles to view incremental information to complement the live replay on the pitch. The stuff of dreams for avid sports fans! Ultimately, it’s all about offering personalized, high-definition content without burdening upstream bandwidth.Practical considerationsIn practical terms, what do telecom operators need to consider when planning edge deployments? My customers tell me that they need tough, ruggedized products, resistant to shock, dust and vibration, capable of operating in temperature of up to 45 degrees C and certified for telecom usage, where failure is not an option.Space is often limited and so light-weight, small, compact products are important, with cabling and cooling designed in a ‘nonstandard’ (for IT) way. This is exactly why we offer shallow-depth servers and provide equipment enclosures and shelters. As access for maintenance is often challenging, the hardware platform should provide extended long-life and include tamper-detection capabilities.The right partnerDell Technologies OEM | Embedded & Edge Solutions provides hardware and software solutions that can play at every level from the edge to the core, to the cloud.
