The play was a huge success.Poster for Nosferatu: The Legend of Dracula designed by Marie Alvarez (a former AHS student).On Wednesday, February 24, Erin Miner, Apopka High School’s Drama teacher was shocked when she received an email from L. Don Swartz, the playwright himself of Nosferatu: The Legend of Dracula.Mr. Swartz had seen a picture of the poster for the play and contacted Erin to get a copy for himself. L. Don Swartz said, “I saw your poster for my play “Nosferatu: The Legend of Dracula: and I love it! Any chance I can get a copy? I would love to hang it up in my theatre.”Erin not only emailed a copy of the poster but included pictures of her students performing throughout the production to share with the playwright.After receipt of her email, once again, the Mr. Swartz took the time to respond, saying, “Thank you so much for sharing the pictures of your production. Wow! I love the set, the costumes, the lights. It looks like an amazing production.”Erin said “I have worked in theatre for 55+ years and this is first time a playwright has taken time to reach out and contact me. It was a really neat experience for the cast and crew! I am extremely proud of my students and the work they do!”Needless to say, Erin put an original poster in the mail to L. Don Swartz.

Facebook Kristen Clarkehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kristen-clarke/ Linkedin Twitter ReddIt Welcome TCU Class of 2025 World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Linkedin TCU begins $2M renovation to surface of football practice field TAGStext only Website| + posts Kristen Clarke is a senior studying sports & broadcast journalism from Barrington, Illinois. She is a member of the TCU Cheerleading team. Former wide receiver launches clothing line on TCU’s Pro Day printVeteran journalist Bob Schieffer talked about the results of the presidential election and the issues facing President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday at a forum. Schieffer talked to an audience of students, faculty, staff and community members that packed the auditorium of Moudy North. Not only were the seats filled, but people also sat on the stairs and stood along the walls to hear Schieffer’s perspective on the state of American politics following the bruising presidential election. Schieffer spent much of the hour fielding questions from students and others in the audience. But the first portion of the evening was devoted to a question and answer session between Schieffer and Dr. Kris Bunton, dean of the college of communication, which bears Schieffer’s name. Here are some of Schieffer’s thoughts: Q: How did it come down to the choice that we wound up with?Schieffer: Our whole electoral system has basically collapsed. On the Democratic side, the third oldest party, only ended up with one candidate. You all should put serious thought on whether you might want to run for public office someday. It is going to talk a whole new group to turn this around.Q: What grade would you give the media in this campaign?Schieffer: My part of the media did pretty well. I think the mainstream media did pretty well. The problem is that we have fake news now. We first began to see this in 9/11 in the mainstream media when it was reported that a plane was headed to the Sears tower in Chicago, which was not true. That day we learned you can not let this go unanswered. Now, because news goes around the world in seconds, you have to knock down these stories in order to avoid pandemonium. Report the truth as accurately as we can and knock down false stories. During this campaign, you can’t keep up with it. For example, Trump’s quote calling Republicans dumb? Fake. People take him seriously but not literally. Q: Clinton’s emails?Schieffer: It did have an impact, but the reason why she lost in the end is because people wanted change. What I could never understand is why was there not someone around her telling her that she wouldn’t want to do this and that it wasn’t worth the trouble that it would cause.Q: Trump has won the election. Now, who have we really elected?Schieffer: He can be very personable. He can be childish. Who sits around at 3 a.m.? He was not a very good politician. When the FBI director was telling a story, Trump called light to Saddam Hussein. Who does that? But he figured out that people were very upset. I really don’t know. There have been times that he has been nice to me and times when has has not. But he’s a salesman. Many times he says whatever he needs to say to close the deal. There is nothing illegal about that, but that’s the best answer I can give about that. Q: How are world leaders reacting?Schieffer: They don’t know what is going to happen, but they are ready. Last week the Japanese prime minister came to the U.S. to find out what the deal was. He wanted to know what Trump thought about the relationship with Japan. I don’t know what they are thinking and I think a lot of world leaders are reacting, and that is not good. Again, this unusual campaign — we have never had a transition like this. Q: Ignorance. What might the future generation be able to do to prevent this?Schieffer: The truth always helps. We just have to stay at it. Young people have to understand that this about you and about all of you here and it’s not something that … the role of government is to improve the lives of citizens. It is not meant to be entertaining or anything. We have to demand that our public officials represent that for us. This was not a record vote turnout like people had said.

TAGS Sunlight Announces NVIDIA GPU Support, Giving Edge AI a Boost Twitter Pinterest Facebook CAMBRIDGE, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 16, 2021– Sunlight, a developer of virtualization technology for data-intensive applications, today announced NVIDIA GPU support for Sunlight NexVisor, its lightweight hypervisor providing near bare-metal performance with a compact footprint. Organizations can now unlock the full potential of hyperconverged infrastructure at the edge, maximizing the performance of demanding, GPU-accelerated workloads such as artificial intelligence (AI) running in edge environments. Modern GPUs require massive amounts of throughput to feed the data pipeline. However, legacy virtualization and cloud infrastructures cannot deliver the storage IO necessary, resulting in low GPU utilization. They also have a very large footprint, wasting valuable system resources and leading to high costs and poor efficiency, particularly in constrained computing environments at the far edge. Sunlight’s NexVisor drives millions of input-output operations per second (IOPS) per virtualized instance with ease, allowing 100 percent utilization of GPUs and enabling high-density, high-performance cloud at a fraction of the cost and energy consumption offered by legacy virtualization technologies. This is critical for supporting workloads that demand top performance with the smallest possible footprint, including AI at the edge. Managed services provider Yonder Cloud is currently using Sunlight to deliver high-efficiency GPU-accelerated services. CEO Kevin Smith said, “We run some of the most demanding workloads for customers on our infrastructure – from AI, deep learning, visualization and simulation, to VFX, animation and rendering. Sunlight enables us to achieve full utilization of our NVIDIA GPUs, which delivers huge cost benefits and efficiency gains.” “With high-performance AI becoming central to so many business processes, edge AI has emerged as a very real and rapidly growing phenomenon. Moving AI to the edge can create massive efficiencies, but it requires a new breed of edge infrastructure that can process huge volumes of data in the low-power, resource-constrained and ruggedized compute environments common to far edge locations,” said Julian Chesterfield, Sunlight Founder and CEO. “Now with support for super-fast NVIDIA GPUs, Sunlight is uniquely positioned to support the most demanding workloads out there, with the highest throughput and lowest latency possible.” About Sunlight Sunlight makes performance possible anywhere – from the cloud to the edge. Sunlight’s HCI stack makes applications like AI, Big Data, Analytics and Rendering run 3x faster compared to legacy virtualization, and because Sunlight has a tiny footprint – it’s perfect for the edge. Enterprises and MSPs use Sunlight to cut the costs of delivering high performance IT by 70%.

News Updates”Prisoners Have A Right To Their Medical Records Under Article 21: Bombay High Court Says While Hearing Sudha Bharadwaj’s plea Sharmeen Hakim21 May 2021 7:39 AMShare This – xThe Bombay High Court has said that prisoners have a right to their medical records under Article 21 of the Constitution of India, and prison officials should provide the information, on request. Medical records would include tests results and medicines prescribed, the bench of Justices SJ Kathawalla and SP Tavade said. The court was hearing a petition seeking medical attention and release of sixty-year lawyer-activist Sudha Bharadwaj, undertrial in the Bhima Koregaon Elgaar-Parishad Case. The bench said that Bharadwaj and even other prisoners should be allowed to make a phone call to an approved family member after a hospital visit. “Prisoners have a right to their medical records under Article 21. In view thereof, all medical records, including tests conducted, and medicines prescribed, should be given to the prisoner on request. Infact, we would go a step further and say that this should be done for every prisoner.” Advocate Yug Chaudhry then submitted that they were not pressing for interim bail as Bharadwaj had received the required medical attention after approaching the court. The court then disposed of the petition, ordering the necessary information to be given to the family. The bench noted that Bharadwaj’s family’s main grievance was that they were not given access to her medical records, neither were they allowed to speak to her after hospital visits. The plea filed by Bharadwaj’s daughter Maaysha Singh, invoking Article 226 of the Constitution, stated that the sixty-year-old has diabetes, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, and pulmonary tuberculosis history, is very unwell. She approached the court after Bharadwaj’s three co-prisoners in Byculla tested positive. Last week, the court sought Bharadwaj’s latest medical report from the State Government. During the hearing on Thursday, Chaudhry said that Bharadwaj was taken for numerous medical tests after the petition was filed, but the family was not being provided medical records. He said this was true for all prisoners. “This will cut down much litigation,” he said. ASG Anil Singh for National Investigating Agency submitted that this is for the State to consider because the prison is under the State. He, however, said that the facility should be extended only to Bharadwaj not everyone. Ordering Bharadwaj’s family access to her medical records and a phone call after every hospital visit, the bench said that all prisoners were entitled to these fundamental rights and disposed of the petition. Sudha Bhardwaj was taken into custody on August 28, 2018. Bhima Koregaon Case The Bhima Koregaon battle was fought between 25,000 mighty Peshwa army and 500 British soldiers, including people from the Mahar (Dalit) community. The names of martyrs in the war are inscribed in the memorial by the British Army. The hundreds of people visiting the war memorial at Bhima Koregaon were attacked on January 1, 2018, after violence erupted. They were mainly from Dalit community, and one person died in the stone-pelting. An FIR was registered regarding the violence the same day. However, there has been no substantial progress since. Another FIR by right-wing activist Tushar Damgude, filed on January 8, 2018 and was pursued. It was alleged that the violence at Bhima Koregaon resulted from inflammatory speeches held at the Elgaar Parishad conference on December 31, 2017. The scope of the investigation was eventually widened, with the Pune police claiming retrieval of incriminating documents in the form of electronic records. This included an email written by a certain ‘R’ to Comrade Prakash on April 18, 2017 talking of a “Rajiv Gandhi-type” operation. The NIA took over the investigation in 2020. However, recently Arsenal Consulting, a digital forensics consulting company in the USA, concluded that most of the electronic evidence the police has relied on was planted on co-accused Rona Wilson’s laptop through Malware. So far, 16 people have been arrested in the case — Jyoti Raghoba Jagtap, Sagar Tatyaram Gorkhe, Ramesh Murlidhar Gaichor, Sudhir Dhawale, Surendra Gadling, Mahesh Raut, Shoma Sen, Rona Wilson, Arun Ferreira, Sudha Bharadwaj, Varavara Rao, Vernon Gonsalves, Anand Teltumbde, Gautam Navlakha, Hany Babu and Father Stan Swamy. In the case, most of the accused were neither named in the FIR over the violence nor present during the 2017 event.TagsBombay High Court Bhima Koregaon Elgaar-Parishad Case Sudha Bharadwaj Article 21 Justice SJ Kathawalla Justice SP Tavade #Constitution of India Next Story read more
