first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A storm system that brought damaging winds and large hail from Texas to Mississippi on Saturday will interact with a developing storm to bring the next round of severe weather to some of the same spots on Sunday. It will also expand north and east into the Ohio River Valley and the Mid-Atlantic.Hail the size of grapefruits or softballs fell on Saturday in Cherokee and Houston counties in Texas. While no tornadoes were officially reported, strong and damaging winds were reported in parts of the region. The storms also brought torrential rain, with 5.42 inches falling in Taylor, Texas, just outside of Austin.The system was moving into parts of the Midwest on Sunday morning and bringing some rain and scattered thunderstorms.There is a severe thunderstorm watch until 9 a.m. CDT in southern Texas as the next storm moves into the region. Models are showing a well-organized system moving through Texas Sunday afternoon and into Louisiana and Arkansas at night.The combination of Saturday’s storm system moving into the Midwest and the new storm system moving into the South will bring a risk for severe weather on Sunday from Texas to Kentucky. Torrential rain, damaging winds, large hail and some brief tornadoes are possible with the system. Houston; New Orleans; Little Rock, Arkansas; Nashville, Tennessee; and Louisville, Kentucky, are all at risk for severe weather on Sunday.On Monday, the storm system in the South will begin to catch up with a trailing cold front from the Midwest storm system and bring gusty thunderstorms to much of the southeast U.S.However, the storms could become locally severe in the Carolinas, where damaging winds, large hail and brief tornadoes are possible on Monday.The combination of these two storms over the next two days will bring a good deal of rain from Texas to the Carolinas. Many areas will receive 2 to 3 inches by Monday night. However, there is an increasing concern for over 4 inches of rain in parts of eastern Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi.The heavy rain, possibly in a very short time period, could lead to flash flooding over the next 48 hours.Tracking spring warmthSaturday was a mild day for much of the central and eastern United States. Kansas City, Missouri, had a high temperature of 77 degrees on Saturday, its warmest day since Oct. 8.The mild air will make a push again Sunday into parts of the Midwest, Southeast and Mid-Atlantic. Temperatures from Kansas City to Atlanta will be about 10 degrees above average.On Monday, the warm air will make its way to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic; however, cool air off the Atlantic Ocean will keep New England pretty cold.There will likely be a nearly 40-degree temperature difference between Boston and Philadelphia, with New York possibly on either side of the 70-degree mark.

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Learners firstOn 1 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today New research shows that rather than a series of top-down interventions, theindividual needs of the learner should sit at the heart of any trainingstrategy. Margaret Kubicek looks at what this means for developmentprofessionals and their relationships with the boardAfter years of feeling that it does not have enough influence at boardlevel, the training profession could finally be on the verge of a breakthrough.This is the feedback from research by the Chartered Institute of Personneland Development (CIPD). Business forces driving today’s fast-paced,change-dominated workplace, such as the global marketplace and increasinglysavvy customers, are pushing training up the corporate agenda, and a growingnumber of organisations are placing training at the heart of their overallcorporate strategies, according to Martyn Sloman, adviser in learning, trainingand development for the CIPD. “Competition today is about people,” says Sloman. “Newbusiness forces demand a different approach to the development of people.”This new approach identified by Sloman shifts training from a top-downintervention to learning which focuses on the individual and team as an ongoingprocess. Training is no longer a passive provider of programmes, but astrategic planner of learning solutions based on a thorough understanding ofthe organisation and its business objectives. Responsibility has shifted fromthe training department to the individual – supported and coached by their linemanager. Zurich Financial Services’ corporate and government business was featured inthe CIPD research. “There had been a tendency in the past for people to sit down, usuallyaround an annual appraisal, decide what their development needs were, and thenfor the individual to sit back and wait for the training to be done tothem,” says Zurich’s head of learning and development Ian Canning. Competency frameworkThe company introduced a competency framework as the backbone of itsprogramme of culture change nearly two years ago – identifying five keybehaviours integral to performance at Zurich. Known by the acronym ‘friedrice’, they are ‘fast-moving, results-driven, innovative, customer-centred andengaging’. “We now have 20 per cent of an individual’s overall performancedetermined by how they live the five behaviours,’ says Canning. More specialised competency frameworks are in place for each role at Zurich,and the company is promoting a coaching style for line managers. It rebrandedits training and development function as learning and development – in recognition,according to Canning, that for many employees, training equals courses. The use of such competency frameworks is a key feature of the progressivetraining organisation, according to the CIPD study. So, too, is a culture ofcoaching among line managers and the modularisation of training, with today’scourses becoming ever shorter. Even e-learning – despite its over-hyped debut on the training scene a fewyears ago – has an enabling role to play in this flexible, individualisedlearning approach, according to Sloman. For Marks & Spencer, coaching has been by far the most critical activityin effecting culture change. Over a two-year period, the retailer hasimplemented a programme of coaching right down the line – from executivecoaching for senior managers to section supervisors in store. Sally-Ann Huson, knowledge and intellectual property director at peopledevelopment consultancy TMI, says tools such as balanced scorecard, coachingand mentoring are growing in popularity, while traditional courses are on thewane. ‘The practical courses now tend to be no more than three days, simplybecause people can’t be released from their positions for longer,” shesays. TMI operates an approach for clients called ‘Take 90’ in which delegates popout of work to attend learning rather than take an entire day or more out ofthe office. “It’s a 90-minute, short, sharp input that’s very practicallyfocused,” says Huson. “It’s not about miracles in 90 minutes, this isreally about offering a highly focused piece of learning.” The tools may have been with us for years. What’s new is how someorganisations are employing them as a means of encouraging individuals – andtheir line managers – to take responsibility for their own learning. Simon Cutler, learning and development manager for Dunlop Aerospace,believes the line managers’ facilitating role should be heightened. “A training manager in my capacity cannot facilitate alllearning,” he says. “Part of managers’ competencies and skill setsshould be that they help review and develop their workforce. It shouldn’t be,‘that’s an HR issue – we’ll give it to them’. There needs to be a collectiveapproach.” Helen Cairns, business manager of HR, training and development forDunfermline Building Society, agrees. “You need line managers’ buy-inbecause they need to give the individual the time to learn,” she says. Experiment The key ingredients for success of any learning, says Cairns, are “acommitted training team willing to experiment with different ways of delivering,delegates who want to involve themselves and a supportive line manager”. With learning set to be a source of competitive advantage for today’sorganisation, training managers need to start thinking about broadening theirown skill set to keep apace with the changing times. Sloman says: “Generally, there is an emerging consensus on the role ofthe training function. It will become more demanding and more varied.” Gill Rudge, head of HR for finance and property at Marks & Spencer,says: “A couple of years ago I would have said that facilitation was a keyskill. It still is, but training managers need to be able to formulateprogrammes very quickly, and this ties in with increased modularisation. To dothat, training managers need to increase their analytical skills.” Vanessa Rhone, an occupational psychologist for behavioural specialist OPP,believes training managers skilled in the use of tools such as 360-degreefeedback and personality testing will be capable of more sophisticateddevelopment planning. She also cites “higher-level influencingskills” to support board-level interactions. “The training manager’s job used to be to get training on theagenda,” says Rhone. “Now the tables have turned and a lot of seniormanagers are pushing for development themselves and for their teams. Theimportance now is to get them to go for the right sort of development.” Without question, however, as training becomes more aligned with corporateobjectives, training managers need to step out from their technical roles toensure they are in tune with the business. “You have got to understand the dynamics within the business and beable to talk their language,” says Canning. “Senior management will recognisefrom a development point of view that we have skills to bring to the table. Butif you don’t understand enough about the dynamics of the marketplace, from acredibility view it will be difficult to gain access and influence,” shewarns. StrategySloman sets out a shift in thinkingGlobalisation, ever more confident consumers, continuing advances ininformation technology, a government minded towards deregulation: these are thepowerful forces shaping today’s workplace. It has led to a shift in the way organisations develop their people,according to Martyn Sloman, adviser in learning, training and development forthe Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and author ofTraining in the Age of the Learner, published by the organisation. “Capable and committed people have become the critical source ofcompetitive advantage,” says Sloman. “Emphasis must be shifted fromtraining as a series of top-down interventions to focus on individuallearning.” He charts the shift in his new book and he’s also written a CIPD changeagenda, Focus on the Learner, featuring case studies of 12 progressiveorganisations. “The findings from the project revealed that organisations feel it ispossible to move from a position where they expect training to be delivered tothem, to one where individuals will take responsibility for their own knowledgeand skills development,” he says. “Although the emphasis varied across the organisations, threeactivities seemed to be high on everyone’s list. First, line managers beingexpected to act as coaches and receiving training to ensure they had therequisite coaching skills; second, an increased emphasis on competencyframeworks; and third, efforts to deliver training in a more modular form. These three together could be said to be the focus of current attention andaction.” Progressive organisations are those which embrace learning as a source ofcompetitive advantage, whose senior managers have bought into the value of whatSloman calls “trainer’s nirvana” – a new take on that old adage ‘ourpeople are our greatest asset’. “The aim is to create an organisation composed of self-confidentindividuals who are seeking to acquire the requisite knowledge and skills toenable them to meet customer/client requirements and advance the organisation’sgoals and objectives. “What we’ve been good at in the past is saying the right things,”he says. “For example, ‘the learning organisation’ was a greataspirational statement, but it wasn’t grounded in reality.” What’s new are the business drivers, which are making senior managers morereceptive than ever to the learning agenda. “We have a golden window ofopportunity that’s never been there before,” says Sloman.

first_imgMany people have strong associations with the fall season: apple picking, colorful leaves, pumpkin (spice), playoff baseball. These activities invoke our senses to the point where we can feel the crisp air, taste the ball park mustard, and imagine the palette of leaves. The fall season invites you to create some great memories, and here at Dell EMC, we have 5 additional reasons to celebrate: five new PowerEdge servers!We announced our five new PowerEdge servers with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors on September 17th, with our 1-socket servers, the R6515 and R7515, ready for immediate sale. Now that that it is mid-October, two more solutions are ready to go along with some world records. The 2-socket PowerEdge servers, R6525 and C6525, are perfect solutions for data analytics, machine learning, and virtualization. Their optimized design gives businesses one of the most compute-dense servers in the industry. At Dell EMC, we wanted to make sure you enjoyed the season and leveraged these new solutions to handle critical and demanding workloads; think real-time sports analytics or high-performance hurricane modeling.The PowerEdge server portfolio with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC provides more than just complex analytics workloads. The servers help any company manage their journey through their digital transformation, whether these solutions require software defined storage, virtualization, or high-performance computing (HPC). To build a sustainable competitive advantage, companies must cultivate these foundational capabilities from the ground up.With the new PowerEdge servers, you can focus more time innovating, making strategic decisions, and creating value for your customers. The five new Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC provide world-record performance for whatever solution you are building.Virtualize and CollaborateThe new Dell EMC 1-socket servers, R6515 and R7515, are designed to increase collaboration and improve cost structure. The R6515 optimizes performance for virtual machine density, SQL, and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). Dell EMC built an Azure Stack for HCI Ready Node, so you don’t have to worry about optimizing your configurations. Instead, the R6515 saves time and money by allowing you to focus on collaboration and building applications for your hybrid cloud environment.The R7515 is an amazing solution for database virtualization, especially for Hadoop and Spark. The R7515 has 8 world records filed for database virtualization; 4 in performance and 4 in price.[1] Think of the time saved with 280% more throughput using MapReduce and a 51% IOPS increase on a vSAN Ready Node.[2] On a 3-node cluster, the improvements in the R7515 translates to ~$269,000 in savings over an HPE DL380 3-node cluster.[3] The R7515 helps create a competitive advantage for internal operations by improving data-backed decisions and significantly reducing the total cost of ownership.Accelerate PerformanceThe new Dell EMC 2-socket servers, R6525 and C6525, are dense computing powerhouses, allowing for multiple accelerators. The R6525 increases SAP SD users by 37% with half the rack space of the HPE DL385.[4] Talk about the ultimate ERP and business analytics solution. More users and less rack space are short cuts to TCO advantages and digital transformation. Your data center will have more space to run other workloads, allowing IT to create new innovative solutions. Just imagine the potential customer analytics, business research, and improved operations.The C6525 was purposefully designed and built for high-performance computing and HPC Ready solutions. The C6525 has records in digital manufacturing as well as weather research and forecasting.[5] Not to mention that the 202% increase in LINPACK GFLOPS ensures your superpowered weather models are also accurate.[6] Again, we built the Ready Solutions to keep your mind on the important things; developing more accurate weather forecasts, constructing better economic projections, and designing a new airplane or car.Test what these servers can do for youFall is the best time to make a change. As others prepare to hibernate during the winter months, you can be busy planning and building for the spring rebirth. Creating a competitive advantage starts with the foundation. The groundwork in digital transformation is the IT infrastructure used to support your workforce and your operations that eventually create value for your customers. Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC help our customers manage traditional and emerging workloads, cut deployment times, and boost security. Stay on the cutting edge of the digital transformation by building world class infrastructure.This fall you could try something new. If you are interested in buying or trying the new servers, please contact your Dell EMC Rep or contact us directly. We also have some availability for remote or on-site trial of our new servers. Our Minerva cluster, 64 nodes of the C6525, creates an innovation sandbox for our HPC customers to test their ideas on the new PowerEdge servers with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC.Learn more about how PowerEdge servers can assist you with virtualization, data management and analytics workloads, and follow us @DellEMCServers.[1][2] Results based on Dell EMC Internal testing conducted in the HPC & AI Innovation Lab August 2019 (4k Block size and 100% write)[3][4][5][6] Results based on Dell EMC Internal testing conducted in the HPC & AI Innovation Lab August 2019last_img read more
