time since 1987 that Lahinch will host the Men’s Home Internationals, where Ireland will be looking for their fifth win in the last six instalments of the event.The Home Internationals are the highlight of a busy domestic events calendar, released by the Golfing Union of Ireland and its Provincial Branches, which confirm the hosting by County Sligo of the Flogas Irish Amateur Open on 16-19 May.The AIG Irish Amateur Close Championship takes place in Ballybunion on 3-7 August, with the Interprovincial Championship visiting Tullamore in the last week of August and the Boys Interprovincial Championships being held in Athlone from 23-25 July.The AIG Cups and Shields All-Ireland Finals, meanwhile, will be held in Westport while Castletroy (Irish Mixed Foursomes), Roe Park (All-Ireland Four-Ball) and Castle Dargan (Fred Daly, Junior Foursomes and Boys Inter-Club) will be the final destinations for this year’s provincial champions in various categories.In addition, a significant change is being made to the domestic game at Seniors level, with the four Provincial Seniors Championships lowering their lower age limits from 55 to 50 on the recommendation of the Irish Seniors Selection Committee.The Irish Seniors Amateur Open Championship will remain an over-55s competition in line with those of the four Home Unions and The R&A, but the move by the Branches aligns Ireland’s regional seniors championships with those of Scotland, where regional championships run under the auspices of the Scottish Seniors Golf Society have a lower age limit of 50.Importantly, an added dimension to Seniors golf at club level in 2019 will be the addition to the calendar of an All-Ireland Seniors Inter-Club competition named after the recently deceased past-President of the Union, Fred Perry.The Fred Perry Trophy will be an inter-club four-ball championship for teams of 10 players, all of whom must be over 55 years of age on 1st January in the year of the event. Fittingly, the inaugural All-Ireland Finals will be held in Perry’s home club, County Sligo, where he served the Connacht Branch with distinction for 42 years on the West of Ireland Championship Committee.

PLM Obsolescence: Engineering Giants Struggle to Keep up with Technology

first_imgLarge engineering companies are burdened with trying to upgrade and replace their legacy software. For example, Boeing and Airbus each have more than 2500 different software apps and tools that they use to manage the PLM processes for building their aircraft. The problem is that the PLM landscape of the software that they have cobbled together over many years consist of many products that are aging, obsolete, and don’t have any features or access to newer technologies like IoT, M2M, 3D printing, mobility, and virtual and augmented reality.  Engineering companies have become very dependent on the older software and are now really struggling to reinvent themselves by spinning up and plugging in newer technology into their design and manufacturing processes.A recent article by Engineering.com does an in-depth look at the problem of PLM obsolescence.Håkan Kårdén, Eurostep Group’s CEO, said that “obsolescence in the context of IT and PLM means that solutions and software have become old and too expensive to run, or you have a combination of old things but you really want to have benefits of all the new cool stuff that has been developed.”Brian Chiesi, engineering director at aircraft manufacturer at Boeing, said “that’s the way it is. Currently we’re a bit encumbered with the customizations that we’ve put in place, and we’re also encumbered with the proprietary data standards that are used inside those systems. So today, for us to incorporate new technology and capabilities becomes a very hard integration activity.”Anders Romare, Vice President, Infrastructure Services at Airbus, said that “the biggest gain we can have is to gain access to data. Today, it is very difficult to access the data from many end users – it’s locked into different systems, sometimes in a data format that is difficult to handle.  If we could provide data access to a broader range of people in the company, and thereby democratize the data, that would have a tremendous benefit for the people and company – really unlocking the power of the data that you have in the company.”last_img read more

Yelp’s mrJob: Powering Recommendations and now Open Source

first_imgYelp has a few nifty features on its network that gives it that special sauce. It’s what you see with most world-class social networks where features provide context and allow for discovery. It make it simple to use the service with such features as review highlights, autocomplete, spelling suggestion and top searches.“People Who Viewed this Also Viewed…” is one of its popular features. It shows you photos by other people who also have similar viewing habits.Take the King Burrito page on Yelp. It is a favorite Mexican spot in North Portland, Oregon. The food rocks. On Yelp, the sidebar shows what visitors to the King Burrito page are also viewing. Related Posts Yelp once used its own Hadoop cluster to power these types of services. But they had a few issues. Now they use what they call mrJob. On Friday, they opened the distributed computing service for anyone to use.According to the imformation on GitHub, mrJob “supports Amazon’s Elastic MapReduce (EMR) service, which allows you to buy time on a Hadoop cluster on an hourly basis. It also works with your own Hadoop cluster.”MrJob emerged after Yelp had issues with Hadoop. It would sometimes get in the way of other jobs. From the Yelp engineering blog:“We had a dozen or so machines that we otherwise would have gotten rid of, and whenever we pushed our code to our webservers, we’d push it to the Hadoop machines.This was kind of cool, in that our jobs could reference any other code in our code base.It was also not so cool. You couldn’t really tell if a job was going to work at all until you pushed it to production. But the worst part was, most of the time our cluster would sit idle, and then every once in a while, a really beefy job would come along and tie up all of our nodes, and all the other jobs would have to wait.”The Yelp team heard about EMR and decided to move its Hadoop cluster to the AWS platform. It took some time to move the code base but in May they retired their Hadoop cluster and switched its production to AWS. It’s that framework that became mrJob.The Yelp team is encouraging developers to give mrJob a try. Details can be found on the Yelp Engineering blog.Hadoop is for big data but the elasticity on a cluster can be minimal compared to what AWS can provide. It shows the value of using a service like AWS when the requirements go way beyond what an enterprise data center can handle with the best possible efficiencies.

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Brighton boss Graham Potter: Spurs win long time comingby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBrighton boss Graham Potter says victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Amex was just rewards for their recent work.Potter commented on how the mood remained upbeat within the squad despite the results not going his players’ way.“They’ve had the belief despite the results. That gives you strength if you feel that you’re doing things in the right way.“We know we’ll still improve because it’s only our eighth game together. But the performances have been good and the players understand what we’re trying to do.”Today we had a bit of luck and that helped to grow our belief and confidence. Saying that though, I felt we produced a performance that was worthy of a 3-0 victory today.” last_img read more

Minister Paulwell Urges Jamaicans to Access Energy Fund

first_imgMinister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Phillip Paulwell, is urging persons to access the Energy Fund operated by the Development Bank of Jamaica, which can be had at an interest rate of 9.5 per cent at various financial institutions.The Government has allocated over $360 million in the 2013/2014 Budget to support energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, and residential customers can access up to $3 million, which is payable over eight years.Speaking at an Energy forum at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, in St. James, on June 6, Mr. Paulwell noted that enough takers are not accessing the loans.“As people looking for opportunities, look at this facility that the DBJ has to offer. You can market it to your potential clients. We have to make use of these arrangements put in by the Government to encourage more of our people to access renewable sources. I am urging you to start a trend that will see greater take-up of the facilities offered by the DBJ,” he told the audience.The Minister told the forum that there are vast areas in which persons can invest, and receive meaningful returns.“There is a business for training people… you need people who can do energy audits, you need people to establish facilities, and eventually, we will need to have a solar facility in Jamaica, to assemble equipment,” he added.Mr. Paulwell cited the energy saving project which has started at Government offices, on a small scale, that has already achieved reduction in the amount of energy consumed, adding that there will be further upgrade of the energy reduction system, with some 5,000 air-conditioning systems to be replaced. “We have seen already a fall in consumption in the region of about 10 per cent, and we are now moving forward to incorporate greater efficiency by changing out, in the next year, the air conditioning systems, and replacing 100,000 bulbs…and although we have to advertise globally, we have a 10 per cent advantage for Jamaican businesses to supply these services and products. Here is another opportunity for you to invest,” the Minister urged.The forum was hosted by the Energy Policy Coalition, an alliance of the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA), and the Business Process Industry Association of Jamaica (BPIAJ). It provided information on investment opportunities, as well as the latest trends in the energy sector, with several exhibits on display.Contact: Garfield L. Anguslast_img read more

Reps Bellino Sheppard School safety grants will benefit southeast Michigan

first_img State Reps. Joe Bellino and Jason Sheppard this week welcomed the announcement of $25 million in grants to improve school building safety across Michigan, including money specifically for schools in Monroe County and southern Wayne County.Both legislators have voted in favor of school safety initiatives in the state Legislature, including approval of the money for the grants announced this week by the Michigan State Police. The grants will help schools buy equipment and technology to improve building security.“There isn’t anything more important than protecting our kids, and these grants will help make school buildings more secure,” said Bellino, of Monroe. “It’s a positive, much-needed step.”Sheppard agreed, adding the grants are part of a multifaceted approach to improve school security.“We must take a proactive, comprehensive approach to creating a safer learning environment for our children – and these grants are an important advancement in that process,” said Sheppard, of Temperance.Some of the grant recipients in the region include Monroe Public Schools ($168,583), Ida Public Schools ($55,043 with a match requirement) and Gibraltar School District ($34,044).Overall, the Department of State Police awarded $25 million divided among more than 180 schools and districts across Michigan.###Note: A complete list of school safety grants is available on this Michigan State Police website:https://www.michigan.gov/msp/0,4643,7-123-72297_34040_75045—,00.html 01Nov Reps.
