Lawrence Goes Old-School In Their New Music Video For “Alibi”

first_imgThe soulful up-and-comers Lawrence have been on our radar for a while, and we’ve been watching them steadily blow up over the last year or so. We became enchanted by the two siblings, Clyde and Gracie Lawrence, at Bonnaroo, when their bubbly performance inspired Vulfpeck collaborator Antwaun Stanley to hop onto stage and join them for an unplanned vocal jam—earning the group our 2016 Bonnaroo award for “Best Club Stage Band.” Since then, we’ve seen Lawrence gaining a momentum that shows no signs of dissipating. They got signed to Warner Bros. records, have been touring extensively for their debut album Breakfast, and have been supporting artists like Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Jacob Collier, Vulfpeck, and Eric Krasno Band.Live For Live Music Presents The 2016 Bonnaroo Music Festival AwardsYesterday, Lawrence released a brand-new music video for their flirty song “Alibi” off Breakfast, the debut album they’ve been heavily promoting since its release last year. The video is an old-school throwback, and we’re all about it. You can check it out for yourself below, and keep an eye out for the group as they continue to build a name for themselves.last_img read more

Discover All the Benefits of a Dynamic IT Infrastructure

first_imgInfrastructure architecture is increasingly important in today’s digital economy. As transformational workloads drive demand for new technologies, an organization’s IT infrastructure needs to be able to adapt to accommodate evolving workloads, technologies, ecosystems and value propositions.Traditional IT architectures simply weren’t designed for modern business and service delivery needs—so Dell EMC has introduced the concept of kinetic infrastructureIntroducing kinetic infrastructureWe know that you can’t predict the future, but you can plan for it. It’s why we’ve created a dynamic IT infrastructure that instantly responds, adapts and evolves with shifting IT needs.Dell EMC kinetic infrastructure disaggregates compute, storage and networking resources into shared resource pools that are then available for on-demand allocation and re-allocation. High-speed, low-latency fabric connects the pools and intelligent management software configures the network to connect components and assign resources to where they are needed, when they are needed.Using kinetic infrastructure, your customers can dynamically adjust their IT resources as their business needs fluctuate—assigning the right resources for the right workload at the right time. Creating ‘on the fly’ hardware capacity in this way reduces over-provisioning and stranded resources while also optimizing performance and efficiency.> View these short-animated videos to see how it worksDell EMC PowerEdge MX: Agile ManagementDell EMC PowerEdge MX: Next-Gen NetworkingPowerEdge MX: IT unboundKinetic infrastructure is available with the new Dell EMC PowerEdge MX modular infrastructure.PowerEdge MX introduces the idea of ‘IT unbound’. A modular solution designed to grow and evolve with the modern software-defined data center, it allows organizations of all sizes to flexibly configure and optimize their IT infrastructure to run both traditional and transformational workloads for years to come.PowerEdge MX offers customers the benefits of modular design and then extends the flexibility of configuration down to the individual storage device. With its future-forward design, PowerEdge MX is prepared to one day support fully disaggregated components—down to memory-centric devices, such as storage class memory, GPUs and FPGAs – for true composability.The new components comprising the PowerEdge MX include the PowerEdge MX7000 chassis, two- and four-socket server sleds (the MX740c and MX840c) and the PowerEdge MX5016s storage sled.  The PowerEdge MX also provides next-generation 25GbE and 32G FC high-performance switching modules and a cost-effective scalable fabric architecture. The new MX9116n Fabric Switching Engine provides up to 500% more switch fabric capacity and up to 55% reduction in fabric switching latency versus legacy modular switches1. Comprehensive embedded systems management, Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise – Modular Edition, provides a single management point for compute, storage and networking.Flexible, agile, responsivePowerEdge MX kinetic infrastructure gives customers the tools to be able to allocate the stranded resources that they experience even with virtualization, while also enabling them to grow and expand over the next decade.As a Dell EMC partner, this is a fantastic selling point for you. Dell EMC kinetic infrastructure uses open source technology based on the Restful API, so you can help your customers to grow seamlessly, with fewer steps and easier deployments—while nurturing a trusted, long-term relationship. You can also add value via the provision of an ongoing consulting and services offer, either through Dell EMC or by deploying your own expertise.The final tick in the box is the fact that customers can now also capitalize on the promise of a ‘pay as you go’ model of IT. With Dell Financial Service’s Pay As You Grow offer organizations can reduce the required capital expenditure at the start of a project, while still taking advantage of the full solution from the outset. Meanwhile, you get the benefit of residual value and ongoing customer loyalty. It’s a win:win and it’s the way forward.> To discover more about how Dell EMC PowerEdge MX with kinetic infrastructure can transform your customers’ IT environments, read our blogs:> Kinetic Infrastructure is the Path to Full Composability> The Gen-Z journey: the road to true composability> What is Composability and Why It Matters to Your IT’s Efficiency Introduce customers to new PowerEdge MX with kinetic infrastructure that will adapt and grow with their business 1Based on Dell EMC internal analysis, November 2017 comparing to previous generation.last_img read more

Flowers from seeds

first_imgStart with the seed package. The label will tell you when toplant and whether the seeds require light to germinate.Almost any container with bottom drainage holes will work — foamcups, egg cartons, tin cans. But plastic trays and pots fromgarden supply centers are easy to use.Most seeds can germinate in the sterilized peat or pine-barkgrowing media you can buy in stores. Or mix one part clean sandwith two parts peat moss.How to plantWhatever the mix, be sure it’s moist before you plant. Make smalldepressions for big seeds and tiny trenches for small seeds.Space them carefully.If the seeds need light to germinate, don’t cover them. Justpress them into the potting-mix surface. If they don’t requirelight, add just enough potting mix to cover them.Mix tiny, dust-like seed (begonias, petunias) with sand, spreadthem carefully with an old salt-shaker and leave them uncovered.For annuals, start seeds four to eight weeks before the date ofthe average last killing frost. Starting too early can leaveplants spindly.You can start perennials, on the other hand, in January. Or youmay need to start them indoors in June to transplant in earlyfall. Check your package label.What next?Keep seed pots and boxes moist but not wet with regular, finesprays of water. Place them in a glasshouse or a warm, shadedarea. In open, shaded areas, cover pots or seed boxes with clearplastic kitchen wrap to keep the soil surface from drying out.Remove all covers when seedlings emerge and reduce shade as theydevelop.Water new seedlings carefully. Small containers dry out fast.Keeping the soil soaking wet, though, will keep seedlings fromgrowing well and may kill them. Water them gently. Don’t wash theseeds out.After the seedlings have true leaves, add quarter- tohalf-strength fertilizer to the water once a week. Use completefertilizers with nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and traceelements.Be carefulToo much fertilizer will burn tender roots. Use a solublefertilizer and follow label directions for seedlings.Where poor ventilation results in high humidity, fungal diseasesare common. Fungicides don’t cure these diseases. They merelyslow their spread. Prevent seedling diseases by providingadequate space and ventilation, maintaining strict hygiene andnot overwatering.Once seeds have grown four to eight leaves, transplantindoor-grown seedlings into larger pots or the garden.Whether you sow indoors or out, you may have to thin seedlings ifyou planted too many seeds. If they stay overcrowded, they’ll beweak and spindly because they won’t get enough light. Don’t tryto pull out the extra seedlings. Cut off all but the strongest atthe soil level.Don’t let winter spoil itIf cold weather threatens, cover young seedlings at night withplastic buckets, cloth or other things that retain heat. As timegoes by, gradually remove the coverings if it doesn’t drop below45 degrees. This way, the seedlings become shorter, hardierplants.Consider how big your plants will grow and space them accordinglywhen you transplant. You may need to stake delphinium, foxgloveand any plant that starts out tall and leggy or has heavy flowers.Water seedlings in thoroughly at transplanting. You may want touse a dilute solution of liquid plant food to water them in. Ifyou do, don’t add granular fertilizer until the plants startgrowing strongly. Then apply 1 pound of nitrogen per 100 squarefeet of bed every two weeks.Water daily the first week or so. Then gradually cut back to onceor twice a week. By midsummer, once a week may be enough even indry weather.(Paul Thomas is an Extension Service horticulturist with theUniversity of Georgia College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences.)
