Railroad Earth has been playing magnificently on their winter tour! The band recently delighted in New York, and made their way over to Philadelphia’s Union Transfer last night to showcase their folk-oriented grooves.Certainly one highlight from the show was their powerful cover of “Peggy-O,” a Scottish folk song adapted by the Grateful Dead. The band broke into “Peggy-O” as their encore, making it all the more special.Thanks to YouTube user ricgrass, you can enjoy “Peggy-O” below:Setlist: Railroad Earth at Union Transfer, Philadelphia, PA – 3/10/16Set 1: Mighty River, Saddle of the Sun, Happy Song, Grandfather Mountain, The Good Life, Potter’s Field –> Lone Croft Farewell, Any Road, ElkoSet 2: Black Elk Speaks, Like a Buddha, Crossing the Gap, Came Up Smilin’, Farewell to Isinglass –> Chasin’ a Rainbow, Walk Beside Me, Hangtown Ball, 12 Wolves, Hard Livin’Encore: Peggy-O
Gov’t Mule played a rocking show last night at Houston, TX’s White Oak Music Hall, wrapping up a series of three Texas shows this week.The two-set show featured a first frame comprised entirely of original material, with Warren Haynes sprinkling in teases of John Scofield’s “Hottentot”, a tune off A Go Go, his 1997 collaborative release with Medeski, Martin & Wood. Gov’t Mule’s second set and encore saw the band weave in a number of covers, including a “St. Stephen Jam”, and a cover of The Beatles’ “She Said, She Said”.The highlight of the show’s second half came when the band moved through “Bed Of Lies”, played for the first time live. “Bed Of Lies” is one of two previously unreleased tracks from the Revolution Come… Revolution Go sessions, a special release Gov’t Mule put together for Record Store Day this past spring.You can watch a crowd-shot video of “Soulshine”, from Gov’t Mule’s performance at White Oak Music Hall below:Gov’t Mule – “Soulshine” – 9/21/2018[Video: William Castleman]For a full list of Gov’t Mule’s upcoming performances and ticketing information, head to the band’s website here.Setlist: Gov’t Mule | White Oak Music Hall | Houston, TX | 9/21/2018Set One: Slackjaw Jezebel, Thorazine Shuffle, Million Miles From Yesterday, Child Of The Earth, Birth Of The Mule, Funny Little Tragedy with Message In A Bottle lyrics, Pressure Under Fire, Time To ConfessSet Two: Inside Outside Woman Blues, Burning Point, Sarah Surrender, Trane > Eternity’s Breath > St. Stephen Jam, Bed Of Lies, She Said, She Said > Tomorrow Never Knows, SoulshineEncore: Come On Into My Kitchen > Gonna Send You Back To Georgia[H/T Jambase]
I recently joined the Storage Solutions team at Dell Technologies, which is tasked with marketing for High Value Workloads and Vertical Solutions across our storage portfolio. Our team handles everything from SAP, SQL and Oracle to Healthcare, Life Sciences, Media & Entertainment, Video Surveillance and Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) – just to highlight a few. All these established solutions areas have important use cases and workloads that drive significant amounts of storage capacity and revenue.My area of focus is somewhat different and unique on the team: I cover AI/ML/DL as a discrete solution area but also as a horizontal enabling technology ingredient across all vertical solutions. One of my key responsibilities is to showcase how our storage portfolio enables the design and deployment of optimal IT environments for AI initiatives. This is an emerging area, quite dynamic and diverse, made all the more important as our customers look to gain competitive insights and revenue advantages in this Data Decade.We’ve all heard that “data is the new oil” and therefore one of the most important assets for organizations around the world. But the advantages and importance of this Data Capital are only realized if value can be extracted successfully. In order to effectively harness the power of data, the very backbone of your IT infrastructure needs to be optimized to handle the work. This can be achieved in many ways; however, one thing is certain and urgent – the data keeps coming and it won’t stop. We’re living in a time of unprecedented growth of unstructured data. Organizations are swamped and they need new ways to address this data deluge.So how do you effectively and efficiently extract the value from data? What are the key ingredients of a modern IT Infrastructure for AI? What’s holding you back? Both Dell EMC and Intel, as IT industry leaders, are tasked with helping our customers answer these important questions as we collectively embark on our journey toward a digital future. To this end, we recently commissioned Enterprise Strategy Group to survey organizations around the world to determine their state of AI readiness. The results are published in this new Research Insights Paper: How Organizations Unlock Their Data Capital with Artificial Intelligence. The analysts were determined to discover what sets organizations apart with respect to their use of AI technologies and the best IT Infrastructure to power these demanding workflows.A key tenet of the report is that legacy data analytics techniques simply will not work today and that forward-thinking organizations must implement AI into the mix in order to remain competitive. AI has significant advantages compared to traditional analytics, offering speed, scale, impartiality, precision and uptime. The report goes into detail on these facets, as well as the positive revenue and competitive impacts organizations can expect by introducing AI deployed on a modern IT infrastructure, summarized in the graphic below.Although the results vary across the study’s respondents, it’s clear that no matter where they are in the evolutionary process of applying AI to their data analytics initiatives, the effort will drive significant amounts of incremental revenue.How does your organization do the same? This highly informative ESG report highlights four key characteristics of Data Capital achievers:Deployment of high performance and scalable storage. We offer Dell EMC Isilon scale-out NAS, Dell EMC ECS and Dell EMC PowerMax.Use of hardware accelerated massively parallel compute for optimal AI model training. We offer Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers with Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel FPGAs.Adoption of comprehensive protection for the data pipeline. We offer Dell EMC Data ProtectionEnlistment of third parties to augment data science initiatives. We offer Dell Technologies Consulting.It’s still early days in the use of AI to power data analytics initiatives. Even though, it’s clear from this report that organizations starting now to build out AI enabled modern IT Infrastructures are the ones that stand to gain the most from their nascent investments.Are you interested in learning more? In addition to this ESG report, we’ve recently commissioned a couple other new research papers in this area. Please check out this report from Moor Insights & Strategy as well as this IDC Technology Spotlight.Thanks for reading my first blog. I look forward to continuing the conversation in future posts.

The vessel is the second LNG-fueled ship in the company’s fleet after the retrofitted chemical tanker Fure West.

I’m in the team now and if it carries on, then great.”Set-piece headers either side of half-time from Chris Riggott and Tuncay Sanli handed Portsmouth a third consecutive league defeat but the goals hardly affected Ashdown’s hopes of a Wembley appearance, with James safe in the knowledge that, if fit, his will be the first on the Cup final team sheet. “I know what my side will probably be,” said Harry Redknapp, the manager. “Jamie’s done a good job but David’s the best in the league and I want him back.”The name of Saturday’s first goalscorer was something of a surprise, though, not least to Riggott himself who only last Thursday was considering his role in Stoke’s attempt to beat Leicester in order to ensure promotion. Then the phone rang. It was Gareth Southgate, activating a 24-hour loan recall clause, much to the player’s chagrin. “I’m gutted to miss the Leicester game because I wasn’t expecting to come back,” said the defender. Middlesbrough may have belatedly secured Premier League survival, but the future of Riggott is rather less clearcut, although Southgate said: “I won’t be forcing him out of the door.”Man of the match Chris Riggott(Middlesbrough)
