(Photo credit: Deedar70/Wikimedia Commons)Apparently one Billy Joel performance at Madison Square Garden just isn’t enough.On the same day that pre-sale tickets went on sale for the singer’s Jan. 27 performance, two additional MSG concerts were added to Joel’s growing list of shows in 2014.Pre-sale tickets are currently available for the concerts on Feb. 3 and March 21 for Citi Private Pass cardholders. The general public can purchase tickets for all three dates on Saturday.Joel’s last solo performance at the Garden was in 2006, when he performed a record-setting 12 consecutive sold out shows.The “Piano Man” singer is also slated to perform on New Year’s Eve at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.Joel recently performed a sold out charity concert at The Paramount in Huntington. The surprise concert sold out within minutes and frustrated many of his most loyal fans, but now they have three shots at watching the Long Island singer live at MSG.Joel joined a star-studded lineup last year at the Garden for 12-12-12, a charity concert for Hurricane Sandy victims.last_img read more

first_imgThere is still a lot of mystery surrounding the “Cloud” and we often hear people say “we are not ready for the cloud”, newsflash – if you are using recent updates of software and new applications, you are already there. I’ll take a few minutes to unpackage what this means.In meteorology, a cloud is an aerosol comprising a visible mass of minute liquid droplets or frozen crystals, both of which are made of water or various chemicals.In technology a cloud is a collection of physical hardware setup in such a way to deliver a service. When the cloud is defined in this manner it’s easy to see why there are so many cloud buzzwords around the industry, but this doesn’t really explain what the cloud is or means to a business.The cloud is the means to an end. In the same way that you traditionally purchased physical assets to build your own server and network infrastructure, you can instead purchase cloud services. The purpose is to run the applications and services your business requires. The best way to really think of any technology cloud is just the collection of servers, network devices, and security devices all paired together to provide something greater than the sum of their parts.It’s important to understand that there are many different types of clouds available. The various types, along with the number of players which have entered the field can make understanding this rapidly changing landscape difficult. Knowing what is available and how each can be leveraged will give your business an edge.Types of CloudsInfrastructure as a service, IaaS, is a cloud service which provides you and your business infrastructure needs. In most cases you can just think of this type of a cloud as a fully stocked datacenter. This datacenter is an extension of your business and treated just like a collection of hosts, SANs, and core networking devices. For an example take a look at AWS.Platform as a service, PaaS, is signified by the cloud providing you with a platform to build or manage applications. In many cases PaaS offerings allow you to run your code as is within their cloud and allowing you the flexibility of managing your own code and software. For an example take a look at AWS LambdaSoftware as a service, SaaS, differentiates itself from the others by the provider assuming responsibility of all aspects of infrastructure, platform, and software. You are provided software which you can manage. Many applications you use today are SaaS. Some great examples are Salesforce, Office 365, or Google Apps.10 reasons to leverage the cloud:Increase your agility and performanceSecurity and compliance to whatever level you needEmpower innovation to rapidly deploy new applications and technologiesGet out of the data center business leaving that to the experts so you can concentrate on running your organizationNo more guesswork in budgeting – monthly costs depending on use rather than capital outlaysSuperior infrastructure previously outside the realm of possibility for all but the largest of enterprisesIncreased reliability of services and redundancy for your most critical processesPlatforms built to mitigate failure or downtime of any single componentFlexibility – spin up, spin down, or destroy your servers as necessaryCloud platforms scale with your needs immediatelyStill unsure when to use the cloud for your needs?Look out for my next article or even better reach out and have a conversation with Think|Stack. 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tim Foley Tim’s role is to design and deliver creative alliances, marketing & sales strategies to find the organizations that know technology is driving them and are ready to transform.

first_imgYes, of course, Americans are dreamers.But he should finish the thought.For most dreamers, the United States is the only country they know.Dreamers are U.S. soldiers, high school valedictorians, the young couple living next door.Yes, Americans are dreamers — and dreamers are Americans.If only we had a president who understood as much.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen? Categories: Editorial, OpinionThe following editorial appeared in The Washington Post:In his State of the Union address, President Donald Trump seemed intent on burying any chance of enacting legislation to protect the “dreamers.”Instead of reaching out to Democrats to fashion a readily achievable compromise, the president injected more ethno-nationalist venom into a debate he already has done much to poison. Eleven million immigrants are living in this country without legal documentation, but the vast majority of them are otherwise law-abiding.In fact, they are overwhelmingly employed, long-term residents who contribute to their communities in all manner of ways.That is especially true of the dreamers, young people brought to this country as children by their parents.Very few Americans want to see the dreamers rounded up and deported, so you’d think a president would search for common ground to prepare the way for their eventual path to citizenship.Instead, Trump chose in the most inflammatory way possible to associate immigrants with a horrific crime committed by a vicious gang.Rather than reminding Americans of their common roots as immigrants and stressing that immigration is the cornerstone of the American story, Trump vilified them.He would have Americans believe that compassionate treatment for unaccompanied minors who cross the border, often fleeing violence and poverty, or family-based immigration is somehow akin to acquiescing in the homicidal nihilism of MS-13.center_img Trump could have sought a constructive way forward.He could have urged Congress to forge a straightforward deal – a shield for the dreamers in return for border security.Some Democrats would be reluctant to give the president his “beautiful wall”; some Republicans would balk at “amnesty” for dreamers.But if Trump embraced the deal, so would Congress.Instead, he attempted to expropriate the grief of four of his guests in the gallery: parents still mourning the brutal 2016 murder of their teenage daughters on Long Island.That won’t earn him the moral high ground, but it may well deepen the nation’s divisions and further complicate the fate of nearly 2 million young immigrants about whom Trump has said, “I love these kids.”Maybe the saddest moment of the speech came when Trump tried to knock the dreamers off their sympathetic perch with the cleverly contemptuous line, “Americans are dreamers, too.”last_img read more

first_img<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Ultra-long distance towing and anchor handling vessel ALP Keeper has been delivered to ALP Maritime Services.The ALP Keeper was constructed by Niigata Shipbuilding & Repair in Okayama, Japan. It is one of four ultra-long distance towing and anchor handling vessels constructed for ALP Maritime Services, a subsidiary of Teekay Offshore Partners. It was named back in late June 2017.ALP said on Monday that the delivery of the ALP Keeper was done last Friday, February 2. After the delivery, the vessel left the yard and then began its journey to Pohang for further outfitting.The vessel is a part of the shipowner’s ALP Future class, a series of towing vessels made for offshore installation and decommissioning of large FPSO units, FLNGs, and drill rigs.The vessel is based on the Ulstein SX 157 design and has a service speed of 13 knots, while its top speed is 19 knots. With a fuel capacity of more than 3,500 m3, the ALP Keeper and the rest of the Future Class quartet can tow at full power for 45 days, sufficient for non-stop Trans-Atlantic/Indian and the Pacific Ocean towing operations without fuel calls. The vessel is 88.9 meters long and 21 meters wide.The aim of the design was to have sufficient bollard pull and operational reliability to handle even the heaviest tows with only two vessels. All four vessels are classed with DNV’s Clean Design and Ice Class 1B notations, which allow operation in restricted zones. The ships can accommodate 35 people for long periods at sea.ALP’s previous three Future Class vessels are the ALP Striker, ALP Defender, and the ALP Sweeper launched in October 2015, January 2016, and May 2016, respectively.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

When asked whether he was absolutely certain the centre-half would stay, Benitez said: ”For me, 100 per cent. ”I insist that it is clear for me and the club, Sergio will be here. Football is a curious world, but Ramos will be staying.” The one player United may have more success in procuring is Barcelona’s Pedro. The Spanish forward is on Van Gaal’s wishlist and is said to be having “doubts” about his future at the Nou Camp after realising he has little chance of dislodging Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez or Neymar from Luis Enrique’s all-conquering side. ”I have spoken with Pedro,” Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets told a press conference in San Francisco ahead of the team’s friendly against United. ”I think that as a team-mate and friend, I would like him to stay for a long time, but I understand that he has doubts. ”He wants to play but there is a lot of competition. In our team we have the best players and it’s very difficult (to get into the team). ”I hope he stays but the decision is his.” United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is likely to cross paths with his Barcelona counterparts this weekend when the two teams meet at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. Press Association Sport understands Woodward flew back to the United States on Thursday to rejoin the tour. Woodward spent the first week of the tour with the team in Seattle. It was always planned that he would return for the second leg in California and is expected to attend United’s game against Barcelona. United are short of forwards following the departures of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao to Fenerbahce and Chelsea respectively. Senior sources at the club denied United had made a £70million bid for Muller last week, but the German World Cup winner is a player Louis van Gaal would be interested in if he became available. But, according to Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Muller will not be leaving the Bundesliga champions this summer. ”There are some players who just don’t have any price tag,” said Rummenigge, who has already lost Bastian Schweinsteiger to United this summer. ”We would be out of our minds to sell Muller.” United also look to be facing disappointment in their pursuit of Ramos. United are willing to swap David de Gea for the Spanish centre-back, who is at loggerheads with Madrid over the terms of a new contract he has been offered. According to Rafael Benitez, his captain will not be leaving the club. ”I have a lot of respect for Louis van Gaal, but Sergio will be staying with us,” the Real Madrid manager said at a press conference in Australia prior to the team’s friendly against Manchester City. ”He is our player, our captain. I would like to see him (at the club) at the beginning of the season, because he’s a key player for us.” Press Association Manchester United have been dealt a double setback in their transfer dealings after being told Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller and Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos are not for sale. read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 5, 2014 at 2:15 am Contact Trevor: tbhass@syr.edu | @TrevorHass In less than two months, Kaleb Joseph’s Cushing (Mass.) Academy team went from losing to St. Andrew’s by 30 points to winning the league championship.Against St. Andrew’s, Joseph — who is committed to play for Syracuse next season — played well, but his team got humiliated. “After that loss I was really hard on myself,” Joseph said, “and I was really disappointed I couldn’t lead my team.”On March 1, though, Cushing beat St. Andrew’s 67-64 in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council Class AA Championship semifinal. The next day, Joseph captured his second consecutive championship, finishing with 25, nine rebounds and nine assists as Cushing beat Kimball Union Academy 78-70. The No. 49 player in the Class of 2014 ended his high school career on top, and is now preparing to play right away for Syracuse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen the championship game was over, Joseph celebrated with his teammates, relishing what seemed to many like a long shot earlier in the season.“Honestly I was just all over the place,” Joseph said. “The only thing I could think about was that we finally did it.”Last season the Penguins beat St. Andrew’s in the championship game at the buzzer. People said that win was a fluke, but Joseph knew they were wrong.So he did everything he could to win it again this year.Cushing got off to a slow start to the season, the 87–57 loss to St. Andrew’s serving as the low point. But Joseph knew his team could bounce back. He knew a championship was obtainable. “It was kind of like — you don’t want to say this —” Joseph’s trainer PJ Frappier said, “but kind of like the Miami Heat thing where they were just waiting for the time to come.”When the time came, Joseph and Co. were ready to beat St. Andrew’s like they did last year. The Penguins trailed by 12 with seven minutes to go, but Joseph’s confidence never wavered. While his teammates bickered, Joseph urged them to focus on the game. “I was sitting right behind the bench,” Frappier said, “and Kaleb was like ‘Listen, listen, it’s 12. Just relax, relax. One play at a time.’”Joseph helped push Cushing past St. Andrew’s in the final minutes. Then in the championship game, Cushing beat Kimball 78-70, and Joseph accomplished his goal from the start of the season.“I just love to win,” Joseph said. “I don’t know how else to put it.”Joseph said the ability to lead a team to victory is especially important for a point guard. If Tyler Ennis was doing what he was doing and Syracuse wasn’t winning, Joseph said, Ennis wouldn’t be garnering nearly as much national recognition.Ennis’ ability to thrive in the clutch and competitive nature have helped catapult him into the discussion to be a top-10 pick in the NBA Draft if he opts to leave Syracuse. Joseph’s main focus now is preparing himself as much as possible leading up to the start of his SU career. Now that the championship is in the books, he’s looking toward the future.“I know if Tyler leaves a lot’s going to be expected of me,” Joseph said. “I want to make sure that I’m ready in absolutely every aspect of the game.” Commentslast_img read more
