Neeley School professor hosting ‘Entrepreneurship Boot Camp’

first_imgTwitter Ben Autenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ben-auten/ Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Twitter printTCU entrepreneurship professor Michael Sherrod is hosting the second annual “Entrepreneurship Boot Camp” from 5-9 p.m Thursday in Smith Hall Room 104B. “This boot camp will teach students how to start a business and get the most out of the resources available for people starting a business,” said Sherrod.This is the second year Sherrod is offering the boot camps, and he said he hopes to teach students a new way of approaching entrepreneurship.“A few years ago, I realized we don’t actually teach students how you start a business because this has only been an option in recent years,” said Sherrod. “But today we have an entire ecosystem of resources, so the opportunities for entrepreneurs are unlimited.”Boot Camp flyer with what students will learn from the event. Photo courtesy of [email protected] event will be open to all TCU students, even those outside the business major.“Most entrepreneurs do not come out of business school,” Sherrod said. “They come out of a university’s engineering, nursing or even dance program where students see a problem they want to solve.”Sherrod encourages all students to consider attending the boot camp because he sees the role of entrepreneurs in all companies.“I am attending the event because I am interested in possibly being an entrepreneur, and I think I can apply what I learn even as a political science major,” said TCU junior John Merkle.Sherrod said he hopes students will be encouraged to come because of the future reliance on entrepreneurs. “By 2025, the majority of workers in the United States will be self-employed, meaning they will have to be entrepreneurs in some way,” Sherrod said.Sherrod will give a brief lecture at the beginning of the even, and then will allow students to ask questions they have about entrepreneurship.

High-latitudeFregion electron concentration measurements near noon: A case study

first_imgA case study is presented of a ridge of enhanced F region plasma in the afternoon sector near the equatorward edge of the auroral oval. The study for September 26, 1982, principally exploits data from three ionosondes near 62° invariant latitude in the southern hemisphere separated by 5½ hours of local time but only 3½ hours of magnetic time. These observations demonstrate that the ridge structure is better ordered in magnetic time than in local time. Each station observes the ridge for about 4 hours. The poleward part of the ridge is rich in small-scale (1–10 km) ionospheric irregularities. It is suggested that the entire ridge is formed by the mechanism described by Foster (1993) in which plasma initially corotates past noon at lower latitudes, before being entrained in the convection pattern in the afternoon sector, and brought back toward noon. The plasma thus has an extended trajectory in sunlight leading to high concentrations. The irregularities probably result from the combined effects of high electric fields and energetic particle precipitation. The contribution which this plasma is likely to make to plasma structures in the polar cap is discussed briefly.last_img read more

Predicting the distribution of a threatened albatross: The importance of competition, fisheries and annual variability

first_imgThe ability to predict the distribution of threatened marine predators is essential to inform spatially explicit seascape management. We tracked 99 individual black-browed albatrosses Thalassarche melanophris from two Falkland Islands’ colonies in 2 years. We modeled the observed distribution of foraging activity taking environmental variables, fisheries activity (derived from vessel monitoring system data), accessibility to feeding grounds and intra-specific competition into account. The resulting models had sufficient generality to make reasonable predictions for different years and colonies, which allows temporal and spatial variation to be incorporated into the decision making process by managers for regions and seasons where available information is incomplete. We also illustrated that long-ranging birds from colonies separated by as little as 75 km can show important spatial segregation at sea, invalidating direct or uncorrected extrapolation from one colony to neighboring ones. Fisheries had limited influence on albatross distribution, despite the well known scavenging behavior of these birds. The models developed here have potentially wide application to the identification of sensitive geographical areas where special management practices (such as fisheries closures) could be implemented, and would predict how these areas are likely to move with annual and seasonal changes in environmental conditions.last_img read more

Spelt, Honey and Macadamia Bread

first_imgMethod1. Mix the cool water, fresh yeast and honey together in a bowl.2. Add the spelt flour and salt and begin kneading. Towards the end of the kneading add the vegetable oil.3. When the oil is properly incorporated, gently add the macadamia nuts.4. Bulk prove for approximately 1 hour in a prover or a warm, draught-free place.5. While the dough is slightly under-fermented, scale it at 450-500g, depending on the tin size. Cover and give them a short time on a floured board.6. To mould for the tin: flatten, fold the ends over each other in the centre and then roll up for the tin. Final proof for approximately 45 minutes.7. Bake in an oven that is duller than hot – because of the darkening from the honey – at 200-215°C for 25 minutes. In the second of our special macadamia bread recipes, devised by three UK artisan bakers in association with The South African Growers’ Association, this Spelt, Honey and Macadamia Bread was created by Paul Merry of Panary.For 8 small loaves, weighed @ 500g eachIngredientsSpelt wholemeal 2kgCool water 1,200mlFresh yeast 40gSalt 40gHoney 60gMacadamia nuts 700gVegetable oil 30mllast_img read more

Enhanced Speed Drives Better Results with PowerEdge and 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors

first_imgWhenever I get the chance, I talk to customers about what excites them about technology. The conversation often leads back to how they can use data in a meaningful way across their organization.This is not surprising since data is now collected everywhere. Fifty billion intelligent devices have created a flood of edge data. Data analysis has advanced with different flavors of artificial intelligence to provide significant impact on your business. It is natural to assume that data is the critical factor in meeting your customers’ requirements.But in truth we have been collecting and assimilating data throughout history from libraries of papyrus rolls to the first computers. It just took us a long time to find it, understand it and see a pattern. So, while these additional access points are driving analysis today, they require fast processing to bring value to your business and customers. When you stop and consider it, the need for edge devices is related to speed as well as data. For example, one use case at the edge may be reporting weather at various locations. Quick analysis would not only ensure accuracy but also peoples’ safety.Our customers have told us the speed that they deliver, and process information is critical to their business. Last year, we introduced 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with Intel Deep Learning Boost to our PowerEdge portfolio and saw large performance leaps in a variety of workloads. Intel Optane™ Persistent Memory enhanced these benefits by placing large memory capacity right next to the processors. Our customers have already expressed excitement about the performance results from these new technologies.“Not only are we excited about 2nd Gen Intel Xeon processors and the performance improvements, but adding persistent memory in large capacities offers a full array of benefits. We can definitely see space and cost savings potential by supporting more databases or VMs per Dell EMC PowerEdge server with Intel Optane Persistent Memory. We have already seen faster transactions per second with SQL Server 2019 and Intel Optane Persistent Memory and having the ability to recover quickly is critical for our business,” said Antony Messerli, Principal Engineer of Global Infrastructure Engineering at Rackspace.Of course, the nature of modern business demands more and more rapid results. So just this week we are adding the latest 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors to select PowerEdge servers. These enhanced processors drive everyday workloads to AI, with up to 33 percent improved performance with a less than three percent price increase.[1] They include Intel Xeon Gold, Silver or Bronze processor options that let you balance energy-efficiency and cost while delivering improved speed to meet increasing demands. Service customers more quickly with up to 33 percent more cores,[2] up to 28 percent faster frequencies[3] and up to 62 percent more memory cache.[4] Plus, faster data analysis can help you deliver benefits for your customers and business more effectively.“Building upon decades of close collaboration with Dell Technologies, it’s exciting to deliver these latest innovations and the foundation for our customers’ AI-infused, data-centric infrastructure.  Dell EMC PowerEdge systems fueled by the latest 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors extend customer value through workload-optimized performance enhancements, built-in AI acceleration, hardened security and other unique platform capabilities including Intel Optane persistent memory, enabling unprecedented results and amazing digital experiences,” according to Lisa Spelman, corporate vice president and general manager of the Xeon and Memory Group, Intel.Essentially, the speed of the data processing and transmitting is what is changing our world — not the just the data itself. We need to be able to process data in any location — in a way that it is instantly useful while making it secure and easy to manage. Talk to your Dell representative about how to improve performance for your workloads and get more value from your data. And feel free to reach out on Twitter to tell us about your journey from the edge to the core and the cloud.—-[1] Preliminary results are based on Dell EMC internal testing January 2020 comparing a PowerEdge R740 with 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Gold 6242R processor vs PowerEdge R740 with 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Gold 6242 processor running SPECcpu2017 int_rate_base. Actual results will vary. Dell internal analysis Feb 2020 based on Dell US list price comparisons of 6242R and 6242 CPUs, does not include variables like heatsinks or PSUs, pricing subject to change and may vary by region.[2] Based on published data from Intel® for the Intel® Xeon® Gold 6246R vs. the Intel® Xeon® Gold 6246 processor.[3] Based on published data from Intel® for the Intel® Xeon® Bronze 4215R vs. the Intel® Xeon® Bronze 4215 processor.[4] Based on published data from Intel® for the Intel® Xeon® Gold 6242R vs. the Intel® Xeon® Gold 6242 processor.last_img read more

Fiscal Fitness 2004

first_imgBy Michael RupuredUniversity of GeorgiaThe single most important way to protect your credit rating is topay your bills on time. If you pay on time, you avoid late fees,service interruptions and finance charges. More important, youcan dramatically reduce the cost of future loans.For some people, the problem isn’t that they don’t have themoney. More often the problem is simple forgetfulness. Thesolution is to get organized and set up a system. Set prioritiesMake your first priority your secured debts. These are loanswhere failure to make a payment leads to repossession orforeclosure, such as a home, automobile or furniture loan. Your second priority should be your “service” credit, such asrent, electric, natural gas, water and telephone bills. Payingthese bills late often results in disconnection and heftyreconnect fees, late fees and other costs. Lower-priority debts are “unsecured” loans, such as credit carddebt, medical bills and signature loans. Paying these late mayresult in late fees and added finance charges. But it won’tlikely result in disconnection, repossession or termination ofservices.Once you decide which bill(s) to let go for now, contact thecreditor before the due date. The biggest mistake people make iswaiting for creditors to call them. By then, creditors alreadyhave concerns about your ability to pay. When you call them before the due date, though, they’re much morelikely to see you as someone who’s serious about your financialobligations.Tell them you have a problem and what you’re able to do. Let themknow how much you can send and when you can send it. Most of thetime, they’re going to be willing to work with you to help youkeep your account current.Never tell the creditor something just to get them off the phone.The caller makes notes on your account of whatever you promise todo.Finally, follow through on what you said you were going to do. Ifcircumstances change and you can’t fulfill your obligations,notify the creditor right away. Failure to keep your word couldhamper your ability to negotiate terms in the future.Paying bills on time may seem like an ordeal. But a good systemfor keeping track helps simplify the task. And the payoff isworth any effort you invest. You’ve gotta have a systemYour system may simply be a legal pad, a loose-leaf notebook or alarge calendar. The type of system isn’t as important as whetherit works for you. Any system begins with a list of all regularbills, the amount you pay each month and the due date.When you don’t have enough money to pay all your bills on time,it’s important to make wise decisions.First, assess your situation. Figure out how much you can affordto pay and when you’ll be able to pay it. It might help to list your bills in order from the most to theleast important. For each of your bills, you need to know whathappens when you pay. If you must pay late, pay the accounts withthe greatest penalties first.last_img read more

3 hard truths for leaders

first_imgWhen you’re tasked with managing others, things won’t always go as planned, and that’s okay. What’s important is that you learn to understand what you can’t control and adapt accordingly. Although they may be hard at first to recognize, there are certain truths leaders must accept in order to become more skilled and confident in their position.You won’t always be likedIt can be incredibly hard to accept the fact that some members of your team may not like you. Most of us care a lot about how others perceive us so when an employee doesn’t care for you, it can be challenging. The fact is that you are their superior so although your relationship may not be ideal, it’s critical they respect you no matter their feelings on your management style.You’re not perfectMost leaders are promoted to positions of prominence because of their strong work ethic and previous successes. Despite your accomplishments, it’s important to remember that there will be hard times and you will make mistakes. When hiccups occur remember not to be too hard on yourself because each misstep is an opportunity to learn and grow into a better leader.You will have to make hard decisionsThe fact is that when you’re the boss, you will have to make tough calls along the way. Whether it’s siding with the more unpopular opinion or laying off an employee, it won’t always be a pleasant cake walk. But remember you’re in a leadership position because you are capable of making these tough decisions.

Gold heads for biggest weekly advance since 2008 after squeeze

first_img“Headlines have popularized the worries about the ability to buy and deliver physical gold and spreads have blown out,” RBC Capital Markets said in a note. “These concerns are, in many ways, justified, but more so if we begin to see more complete shutdowns throughout the supply chain.”Key players in the global market are working together to facilitate physical delivery, albeit while many dealers of bars and coins are reportedly out of stock, the RBC analysts said. While these concerns are likely adding to exaggerated price moves, gold-positive conditions are not over, they said.Spot gold was 0.2% lower at $1,627.88 an ounce at 10:58 a.m. in Singapore, headed for a weekly gain of 8.6%. The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index fell 3.4% this week.The spread between London and New York prices has narrowed considerably. The disparity was about $22 an ounce on Friday, compared with more than $60 earlier in the week.Other main precious metals also jumped this week: silver rose 16%, platinum climbed 21%, and palladium surged 41%. Supply concerns are growing for the two platinum group metals as mines shut down in South Africa during a lockdown. Topics : Gold headed for the biggest weekly advance since 2008, rallying along with risk assets including equities, as investors weighed up the impact of massive monetary and fiscal stimulus for virus-hit economies and disruptions in the physical bullion market that have roiled trading.The store of wealth is in demand as the outbreak spreads and investors seek havens from the damage, which has led to the flood of support from central banks and governments. The rush for bullion has come when supply channels are being strangled, with some refineries shutting down and flights halted. That’s limiting sellers’ capacity to meet commitments to deliver the metal.The disruptions led to uncertainty if there was enough gold available in New York to deliver against contracts on the Comex, exploding the spread between futures and spot prices in London. But peak tightness may have eased as investors roll April contracts to June, which saw open interest jump to 345,689 futures, from 151,828 on March 9, according to initial data compiled by Bloomberg.last_img read more
