Dog People Have More Friends Than Cat People, But Watch Less Hip TV Shows

first_imgA new study looked at dog people and cat people on Facebook to find the biggest differences between them.  And . . . they mainly just confirmed some stereotypes.  Here are the four big things they found . . .1.  Dog people seem more excitable and emotional . . . and cat people seem moodier and a little smug.The words that dog people are much more likely to use include “excited,” “proud,” “blessed,” and “fabulous.”  Cat people’s top words are “tired,” “amused,” “annoyed,” “happy,” and “sad.”2.  Cat people watch hipper TV shows.  They’re more likely to watch anime, “Doctor Who”, and shows on Cartoon Network.  Dog people are more likely to watch “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Duck Dynasty”.3.  Dog people have an average of 26 more Facebook friends, but cat people get invited to more events.4.  And finally, cat people are more likely to be single than dog people, 30% to 24%.last_img read more

Xeon 5500 – Cisco Charges Ahead with Unified Computing

first_imgI’m quite pleased with the ramp of the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series. As reported during the Nehalem-EX briefing (more info here), we expect the Xeon 5500 to reach more than half of our 2S server shipments by August 2009. All of our key OEM customers have embraced the new architecture with complete product offerings, which provides IT administrators a plethora of Xeon 5500-based systems to choose from. -steve Already the industry has recognized the Cisco UCS blade platform with awards such as “Best of Interop 2009” for Data Center & Storage (link) and “Best Data Center Innovation” from BladeSystems insight (link). It is a bold move on Cisco’s part, and makes a lot of sense in light of the convergence of servers, storage and networking. See a video testimonial about Cisco UCS and Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) from our own Intel CIO, Diane Bryant, here. For this blog, I am focused on data center advancements that Cisco is pioneering with their Unified Computing System (UCS). They intend to combine best practices for network infrastructure with data center virtualization. The Intel Xeon processor family, Intel Virtualization Technology and Datacenter Ethernet are foundational elements to Cisco’s strategy.center_img Recently, Cisco announced further expansion of the UCS product portfolio with addition of three new rack-mount servers. All of them are based on the Intel Xeon processor 5500 Series and are expected to provide compelling performance, memory expandability and integrated virtualization capabilities. They are expected in the fourth quarter. You can read more about the new rack-mount servers here. Have you had a chance to evaluate the new Cisco offering yet? Have you made any plans to deploy in 2009? What do you think of unified fabric and the concepts that Cisco has put forth? Let me know!last_img read more

Improved focus helping Anirban Lahiri’s game

first_imgDefending Panasonic Open champion gofer Anirban Lahiri feels doing meditation in the last few months has helped him improve composure remarkably.As he heads to defend his title at the Panasonic Open, starting from Thursday at the Delhi Golf Club (DGC), the two-time winner on the Asian Tour felt that meditation has helped him think positively and that it would help him excel in the tournament.”Meditating has not only improved my game but it has also made me a better person. It has put me more at peace with myself, my surroundings and my family. That’s what reflecting on the golf course,” said Lahiri, after finishing his practice round on Tuesday at the DGC, where he had also won his second Asian Tour title at the SAIL-SBI Open in February.”I don’t think meditating has any direct effect on my game but I’m not losing my temper on the course and I’m much calmer and accept whatever comes my way.”Lahiri capped the Panasonic title last year, winning in a thrilling three-way play-off at the DGC. In an interesting chain of events, Lahiri secured his second Asian Tour victory (SAIL OPEN) at the same course in the play-off. The title spurred him on at the Asian Qualifying for the British Open in Thailand last month. He duly qualified after winning the title there.Panasonic Open will have a strong Indian field of 48. While Asian Tour winners Lahiri, Gaganjeet Bhullar, Himmat Singh Rai, SSP Chowrasia and Jyoti Randhawa will lead the challenge from the front, an array of local golfers, including Chiragh Kumar and Manav Jaini, will create more interest among spectators.advertisementChiragh, who finished runner-up at the Indian Open in October, is not going through the best of his from, but he expects the home course will help him revive his fortunes. “I haven’t really been in good form so far. I’m hitting the ball quite well so, hopefully, I can carry the form I had at the Indian Open into this week,” said Chiargh.Among the foreigners, 45-year-old Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand is the most decorated player with 12 Asian Tour victories. But there are also the likes of American Ben Fox who wants to cash in on his superb form in his bid to win maiden title.The 24-year-old golfer, who finished fourth at the SAIL Open and achieved two more top-10s after that, said: “I came out with three top-10s this year, so that was nice. Like Anirban said, it is all about getting your first win to get to the next level. That’s where I want to go now.”last_img read more

Dr. Fenton Ferguson, said that only the major hospitals such as Cornwall Regional and Kingston Public will undertake the treatment of any suspected Ebola cases in Jamaica.He said isolation facilities at the other health facilities will only be used for “holding purposes”.“The whole idea is that the other hospitals…all of them should have an isolation area…that isolation area will be a holding area…not a treatment area because we have to be very clear about treatment versus holding area. In each region, you will have a dedicated ambulance…so it’s not going to be any ambulance that is going to move a suspected case,” Dr. Ferguson said. He was addressing members of the media today (October 29), following a tour of temporary Ebola isolation facilities at the Cornwall Regional Hospital in Montego Bay.The Health Minister informed that discussions are underway with the Jamaica Fire Brigade and the army for the movement of suspected Ebola victims.He said also that “we would want to, where possible, have holding areas established at the ports of calls because I think best practice will demand such action.”Work on the temporary isolation unit and triage unit at Cornwall Regional are being undertaken at an estimated $30 million and should be completed by mid-November.last_img read more
