The devices people work on have become even more important with the rapid adoption of work from home by companies around the world. While we’ve been focused on offering the most premium, versatile and secure portfolio of PCs to help professionals work from anywhere, we’re driven by the possibilities to do more.Today we announced new devices across our Latitude, Precision and OptiPlex commercial PC portfolios that push the boundaries of first-to-market innovation. From 5G and AI-based productivity features to thermal innovations and commitment to sustainable designs, maintenance and operations, we are responding to what people want right now — to work more intelligently and efficiently while at the same time reduce their environmental impact.It’s an interesting concept. Pursuing small and light devices that offer more performance, longer battery life, reduced heat, powerful speakers, new antennas to support 5G — while delivering on our sustainability goals. From an engineering perspective, there can be challenges — the smaller you get, the less space you have to disperse heat. The lighter the device, the more you need to balance the weight of reclaimed materials, batteries and speakers. But we don’t believe it’s a choice of one over the other. In fact, to us, innovation includes sustainability.I’m proud to say this is our smallest, lightest, most secure and most intelligent commercial PC portfolio ever1. We added Dell Optimizer, our AI-based productivity software, across the commercial portfolio to help you focus on the tasks that matter most. We cleverly engineered our Latitude 9510 to include 5G antennas in our speakers for amazing connectivity and call quality. We re-designed our Precision workstations to put their power and performance into sleek and smaller designs. We re-engineered thermals on both Latitude and Precision. We launched our first 4K, low blue light panel on a business PC; re-designed keyboards for more comfort; now offer the same motherboards for PCs and 2-in-1s; the list goes on and on.And I’m also proud to say this the industry’s most sustainable commercial PC portfolio.2 All of our new products are registered as EPEAT Gold or Silver. But when we look at sustainability, we hold ourselves to our own high standards – pushing to find ways to reduce our environmental impact, not just by incorporating recycled materials in our products, but throughout the entire product ecosystem and lifecycle. Advancing sustainability is part of our Progress Made Real plan focused on how Dell Technologies will drive measurable change for some of the biggest challenges facing society over the next decade.Building upon the waterborne paints we used in our Latitude 7300 launched last fall, we’ve expanded the use of waterborne paint to 100% of the painted parts across more Latitude devices to reduce VOC emissions – and we plan to expand this across the commercial portfolio. We have made great strides in increasing our use of post-consumer recycled plastic and reclaimed carbon fiber across our commercial portfolio, achieving up to 60% recycled plastic in the OptiPlex portfolio3. We have a goal that 100% of our packaging will be made from recycled or renewable materials by 2030, and with our new Latitude 2-in-1s, we expanded our use of ocean-bound recycled plastic materials into newly designed 100% recycled product cushions. And we’re transitioning to sustainably forested cardboard across our product packaging.It’s not just for PCs either. On the displays side, we’re an industry leader with seven products that have registered as EPEAT Gold and many Dell monitors have been awarded the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient Mark in 2020. On the server side, we’re running pilots that eliminate up to 520 pounds of packaging per rack shipment of our PowerEdge servers with the transportation tote.And most importantly, we are committed to accelerating the circular economy, offering responsible, secure commercial asset recovery where we handle everything from pick-up logistics to data sanitization, resale and recycling. Plastics and additional materials collected through our other takeback programs also get recycled back into new parts for new computers via a closed-loop process – helping foster a circular economy.There has never been a time in my more than 20-year career that I believe more in the power of the PC and Dell Technologies than I do now. We have the unique opportunity to deliver more for people wherever they are working, to help them take on their day, while tapping into their passion for (and our commitment to) sustainability. Turning challenges into opportunities drives innovation, which is what our customers demand. I’m incredibly proud of the products we are launching today, but also inspired by what the future holds as we continue to push the boundaries to deliver the best possible experience AND support a sustainable future.1 Based on Dell analysis, Nov 2019.2 Based on the design, manufacture, packaging, product lifecycle maintenance and number of ecolabel registrations, including EPEAT Gold registrations for the Dell Precision, Latitude and OptiPlex portfolio as of May 2020.3 Measured as a percentage of total amount of plastic (by weight) in the product as per guidance in EPEAT standard as applies to plastics parts.
By John O’BrienSINGAPORE, (Reuters)-Germany’s Nico Rosberg celebrated his 200th Formula One race by retaking the championship lead from Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton after a pole to flag win in Singapore yesterday.After a chaotic start that brought out a safety car on the opening lap, Rosberg stayed clear of Red Bull’s late-charging Daniel Ricciardo at the floodlit Marina Bay Street Circuit.Triple world champion Hamilton completed the podium in third place.“The whole car was on the edge, it always is here in Singapore, so it’s very satisfying to finish like that,” Rosberg told reporters.The German’s third victory in a row, and 22nd of his career, lifted Rosberg on to 273 points, eight clear of Hamilton, with six rounds remaining and Australia’s Ricciardo a distant third on 179 in the title race.Rosberg’s win was his eighth of the season and first in Singapore, a grand prix that has only been won by world champions until now.The German had started two points behind Hamilton and, despite leading comfortably halfway though the race, crossed the line just 0.488 seconds ahead of Ricciardo after having to complete the last 28 laps on the same soft tyres.Red Bull opted for a bold tyre strategy to put pressure on Rosberg late on and Ricciardo was eating into the advantage at roughly three seconds a lap in the closing stages but ran out of road before the chequered flag.“Of course Daniel tried to pull one up on me with the pitstop at the end, we knew it was going to be tight but we got there so I’m very happy,” added Rosberg, who opened a 43-point lead on Hamilton at the start of the season before falling behind when the Briton won six of seven races.OVERHEATING BRAKESHamilton had his own private battle with Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen behind the leading duo, the Briton losing third place to the Finn after a mistake on lap 34 but reclaiming the position with a timely pit stop to hold on to the finish.“This weekend has been a tricky one for me but I’m just happy to get on the podium and get some points for the team,” Hamilton said.“The brakes were way overheating so I had to slow down. Once I did my second or third stop we managed to sort it out.”Last year’s race winner Sebastian Vettel drove brilliantly from last on the starting grid to claim fifth place in the other Ferrari, the German coming home ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso in a McLaren.The safety car was deployed immediately after the start when Nico Hulkenberg’s Force India, eighth on the grid, suffered a heavy crash after making contact with Carlos Sainz’s Toro RossoRosberg got away cleanly to lead from Ricciardo, with Hamilton in third and Raikkonen behind him after Verstappen suffered a woeful start to slip back to eighth from fourth on the grid.The race restarted and Rosberg would have been startled to see a marshal at the end of the start-finish straight picking up debris, the man just managing to get off the circuit before the Mercedes reached him.There were no more safety cars, throughout a 61-lap race that has yet to be completed without one, but the different tyre strategies of the leading cars made for a tactical and exciting race on a circuit that offers very few overtaking opportunities.Mexican Sergio Perez was eighth for Force India with Russian Daniil Kvyat ninth for Toro Rosso.Denmark’s Kevin Magnussen scored the final point for Renault in only the second finish in the points for the team this season.
Share SBC continues to grow media operation with SlotBeats addition January 31, 2020 StumbleUpon New dates for CasinoBeats Malta and Betting on Sports America March 10, 2020 Share Related Articles Submit FES and Incentive Games launch esports prediction game June 2, 2020 ‘Our biggest and most comprehensive agenda yet’ is how SBC Managing Director Andrew McCarron describes the fourth edition of the Betting on Sports conference and exhibition.There will be eight bumper tracks held across the two days of SBC’s flagship conference, which takes place at Olympia London from 17-20 September, including the second running of the PaymentExpert Forum.Betting on Sports is the biggest dedicated sports betting trade event in the world and is expected to attract 3,500 delegates from around the globe, a 30 per cent increase from 2018, having signed up some of the biggest names in the industry.McCarron commented: “The main problem that people who attend Betting on Sports will have is choosing which agenda track to attend. It is little wonder that operators are buying tickets in bulk to make sure they can get the most out of our biggest and most comprehensive agenda yet.“Given the huge success of Betting on Sports America in April and massive potential of the US market, we’re pleased to be able to once again dedicate a whole track to what could be the biggest betting jurisdiction in the world in a few years.”Alongside the eight #boscon tracks, there are four held as part of the second CasinoBeats Summit – the online gaming conference running in parallel to the main event on both days – and a standalone track for the Digital Marketing Forum, also making its second outing. Day 1 tracks at Betting on SportsSport in Focus will include sessions on fast-growing MMA, esports as ‘the major sport you are not carrying’, expansion plans for the biggest European football championships and the impact so far of data restrictions on lower level tennis tournaments.Following on from the huge success of Betting on Sports America in April of this year, the USA in Focus track will look at how sports betting in the country has been revolutionised over the first year since PASPA, while discussing individual state laws, the official data ‘arms race’ and whether the affiliate ‘gold rush’ is all it’s cracked up to be.The PaymentExpert Forum will assess the early impacts of the UK Gambling Commission’s age verification laws and latest developments to frictionless onboarding and payment stacks, as well as why cryptocurrencies – formerly billed as a disruptive force – are now met with distrust.Meanwhile, European Markets will check in on Spanish gambling laws, a new two-tiered betting tax plan in Ireland and the regulatory hurdles to long-term success in German-speaking markets.Day 2 tracks at Betting on Sports2020 Vision – The Future in Focus will discuss how horse racing can address the shortfall in retail funds, adjusting to new advertising restrictions – including the ‘whistle to whistle’ ban in the UK – and whether casino firms are using sportsbooks as loss leaders for customer acquisition.LATAM will be the first of the Emerging Markets to fall under the spotlight, as Brazil follows Colombia’s lead in regulating sports betting. There will also be sessions exploring the challenges of operating in Africa and the ‘softened stance’ towards legislated gambling in Asia.Technology in Focus will start with a CTO panel asking if infrastructure is flexible enough to withstand implementation in different jurisdictions with multiple regulatory challenges, before discussing changes to the UX journey and three presentations on different applications of AI.The impact of the latest restrictions on the UK market will kick off Regulation in Focus, which also covers the thin line between legal and affordable when it comes to such restrictions, the future for advertising and the response to gambling regulators going beyond their remit.Day 1 tracks at the CasinoBeats SummitThe Future of Gaming will ask what the live sector is doing to innovate, before assessing the future of slots, how studios use data to inform product design and whether blockchain has a future in online casino. Market Forces will unpick how the new Swedish marketplace is shaping up in 2019, whether a lack of political will is holding up the spread of legal real-money online gaming in the US, the timeline for integrated resorts in Japan and the implications of Brexit. Day 2 tracks at the CasinoBeats SummitResponsibility & Sustainability asks whether politicisation of the debate is helpful or harmful to progress in the area, whether online casino should follow the FOBT lead to reduce stakes, and how operators can improve their understanding of player finances. Finding the next generation of online casino players will be central to the Customer Journey & Marketing track, which will also consider the sector’s growing relationship with social media, how to get to know Generation Y and why a player focus is key to the recovery of online poker.Digital Marketing ForumThe Digital Marketing Forum, produced in association with AffiliateINSIDER, will explore the latest digital and performance marketing trends across the iGaming industry. Key topics include new lands of opportunity for affiliates, bonuses and social responsibility in gaming, why you can’t ignore video marketing, and understanding the digital culture of the millennial.For more information about the event, please visit the Betting on Sports website.
18 July 2012 The maths and science revision campaign EduC8 will once again assist Grade 12 learners prepare for their exams through revision sessions broadcast at selected Ster-Kinekor cinemas around South Africa each Sunday from 22 July. Each revision session of EduC8 – an 8ta initiative endorsed by the Basic Education Department and partnered by companies BHP Billiton, Primestars and Samsung – will be filmed at a single venue and broadcast to a network of 15 digitised Ster-Kinekor theatres across the country. The sessions will run every Sunday until 23 September and will be both educational and entertaining, allowing learners to interact with qualified teachers who will be available at each cinema complex. Additional coverage for equal opportunities Launched in July last year, EduC8 is aimed at learners from disadvantaged backgrounds across the country. This year, it will reach three additional areas – Witbank, Richards Bay and Kuruman – as part of the project’s commitment to being as widely accessible as possible, and giving equal opportunities to all disadvantaged learners. Special allowance will also once again be made for learners who will not be able to attend the revision sessions due to their geographical locations. These students will be able to access the material online at http://edusynergy.co.za/. One of the initiative’s successes is last year’s participant Zanele Khumalo (18), who attended the revision sessions at Maponya Mall in Soweto. Khumalo is now on her way to Cuba on a scholarship to study medicine. ‘Maths and science a foundation for growth’ “We all acknowledge that maths and science education is the foundation for many of the jobs needed to develop the country’s infrastructure and therefore our economy’s growth,” senior managing executive of Telkom Mobile, Amith Maharaj, said in a statement. “Increasingly these subjects are a critical component of getting ahead and the company is proud to be part of this student initiative which sees government and the private sector working closely towards a common goal,” Maharaj said. BHP Billiton chairman, Dr Xolani Mkhwanazi agreed: “If we are to transform this nation, pushing it to greater heights than ever before, giving all who live here equal opportunities to grow and succeed, we need to start at a grassroots level with skills development and education. “The children empowered by the EduC8 Matric Revision will be those talented, skilled employees, given the opportunity. We need to recognise that the future begins with the children of South Africa and that that future begins now,” he said.Skills development in engineering and science EduC8’s objectives run parallel to sponsor Samsung’s Blue Education programme, which aims to facilitate 10 000 electronic engineers across Africa by 2015, and it is hoped that learners who participate in the revision sessions will be fed through into Samsung’s skills development programme. The Sasol Inzalo Foundation and national bursary organisation Studietrust are also adding their backing to the initiative by reserving at least five full-cost bursaries for qualifying applicants who attended EduC8. The vision of the Sasol foundation is to be a significant contributor to sustainable economic growth in South Africa by focusing on skills development in engineering and science, including a bursary programme that started in 2010. The main criteria for the selection of applicants are academic potential and financial need. Each programme workbook made available to participants contains a bursary application form with information on selection criteria and the application procedure. The closing date for 2013 applications is 30 September. Learners interested in attending the revision sessions, or principals and teachers who would like more information, can call Jacques du Plessis or Mark Wilmot 081 445 9233. Alternatively SMS your name, contact number and school to 081 445 9233 and you will be contacted. You can also register by visiting http://edusynergy.co.za/. Seats are limited. SAinfo reporter
Some of the 18 C40 mayors who attended the C40 Climate Change summit in Johannesburg this week. (Image: Lucille Davie)• Mike MarinelloDirectorGlobal Communications+1 917 683 [email protected]• Joburg acts to beat climate change • Megacities to talk climate change in Johannesburg • Cities combat climate change • Exploring Standard Bank’s glass-fronted green buildingLucille DavieMayors and officials from major global cities gathered in Johannesburg this week for the fifth biennial summit of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, to discuss ways urban leaders can tackle the causes – and effects – of climate change.The summit, held in Africa for the first time, brings together officials from 66 cities, representing 600 million people across the world, in a global network to share information on how they can reduce their carbon footprint. These cities produce 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and 21% of GDP.The C40 group was established in 2005 and now includes seven African cities: South Africa’s Johannesburg and Cape Town, as well as Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, Nairobi in Kenya, Cairo in Egypt, and Lagos in Nigeria.The summit saw the release of a new report, Climate Action in Megacities 2, which builds on research from the 2011 C40 summit in São Paulo in Brazil. The 400-page report arms officials with data to help them change the way they run their cities, compare their administration with others, and to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change.“While international negotiations continue to make incremental progress, C40 Cities are forging ahead,” said Michael Bloomberg, former three-term mayor of New York, outgoing C40 Cities chair and president of its board. “As innovators and practitioners, our cities are at the forefront of this issue – arguably the greatest challenge of our time.“C40’s emphasis on measurement and reporting helps cities focus resources and spread the most effective solutions – and this report shows that our efforts are bringing powerful results,” Bloomberg said. “By using data to show what works – and what’s possible – cities can inform the global conversation on climate change and contribute to aggressive national targets to reduce emissions.”Autonomous cities do betterBloomberg was recently appointed the United Nations Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change, where he will work with mayors to increase their climate change-related commitments, and encourage national governments to do the same.He stressed that there is a contrast between what governments do and what cities do. Cities have more diversity, and their leaders more contact with the communities who live there, so there can be different expectations from mayors. “Cities want national government’s money, but don’t want national government’s interference. You find that cities that have autonomy do much better.”He said that to get citizens more involved in tackling climate change it was important to bring the issues down to the here and now, instead of talking long-term plans.Christiana Figueries, the executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, said mayors must raise their voices at a national and international level. “They must actively reach out to their national governments. Mayors need a strong climate agreement.”The mayor of Copenhagen, Denmark, Frank Jensen, said he worked closely with the country’s cabinet, and they were on a “similar mission” on climate change issues. He said half the citizens of Copenhagen used bikes and, between 1995 and 2012, the city had reduced its carbon emissions by 40%. It also treats is waste water so people could enjoy a swim in the inner harbour.The power of mayorsStressing how powerful mayors can really be, C40 executive director Mark Watts used the expression “When mayors rule the world”, saying cities are learning from each other. Overall, global cities’ actions to combat climate change have jumped from 4 700 in 2011 to 8 100 today.“There is a willingness to be bold and innovative – mayors have the power to act,” he said.From installing energy-efficient LED lighting and creating bicycle lanes and bike hire programmes, to introducing bus rapid transit (BRT) systems to cut down on carbon emissions, cities across the world are having an impact on tackling their climate change issues, he said.The new C40 chairperson and the mayor of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Eduardo Paes, said climate change directly impacts city government. “Ninety-eight percent of city mayors say that climate change presents significant risks to their cities.” He spoke about the power of cities, and their actions making a difference.The C40 has become a global network, he said, citing how BRT systems have caught on, particularly in the southern hemisphere, jumping from 13 in the world a few years ago to 29 now, 16 of them in developed countries.Climate action in megacitiesAnnise Parker, the mayor of Houston in the US, said the city has reduced greenhouse emissions in the last seven years by 26%, and would take that figure down by another 5% in the next five years. And, instead of talking in lofty long-term goals, Houston’s officials tell citizens that by changing 28 000 street light bulbs to LED bulbs, the city has saved $3.6-million. “We talk about bottom lines instead of talking about greenhouse gases.”Another mayor spoke of how they had to teach citizens how to sort waste, with signs and symbols, the latter to include children. And another spoke of how the city invites businesses to help reach emission targets, with a whopping 93% of companies reporting to the city on reaching their targets.Parks Tau, Johannesburg’s executive mayor and host of the summit, spoke of reversing the effects of apartheid planning, which located the majority of citizens on the periphery of the city. His Corridors of Freedom plan would see densification of the inner city, thus reducing carbon emissions. The city’s BRT system has also achieved the same benefits, and by 2020 the city is expected to save 1.6-million tons of carbon dioxide.Tau sees climate change measures as a communal responsibility, involving communities and the private sector.The summit also marks the launch a directors’ programme which will provide dedicated, on-the-ground staff to selected cities. “This significant investment by the organisation in member cities will result in the development of projects and policies to support local sustainability efforts, as well as increase the ability of cities to share best practices through participation in C40 networks,” C40 Cities said in a statement.

Two weeks ago, world-famous web animator Monty Oum, who worked for an Austin-based production company called Rooster Teeth, passed away unexpectedly after suffering an allergic reaction during a routine medical procedure that left him in a coma. In response, his employer asked that anyone who was looking to pay tribute did so creatively – instead of simply sending flowers or gifts.Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns, who are also based in Austin, have obliged. The program put together a tribute ball signed by every player. Alan Abdine, director of business development at Rooster Teeth, thanked the Longhorns on Twitter.Huge thanks to Matt Sims and the @Longhorn_FB team from all of us at @RoosterTeeth for the #MontyOum tribute ball. pic.twitter.com/yXpwi8ngms— Alan Abdine (@abdine) February 17, 2015Very cool. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Oum’s family, friends and coworkers.
