Scratch that — they’re a step behind square one, … The Warriors said that they were going to re-establish old, championship-level habits. They were going to focus, play with energy, and treat every game like it mattered for the final few weeks of the regular season.That focus, energy, and care lasted one game.It seems that new habits — like indifference and lollygagging — die hard, too.So following an embarrassing home loss to the Suns on Sunday, the Warriors are back at square one.

Not only did we plan for the upcoming year, we also discussed our future goals for the chapter, followed with a great dinner and swimming in the lake. We had a great time getting to know each other, doing some team bonding activities and getting some group pictures. As an officer team, we are ready to serve our chapter to the best of our ability and can’t wait to see what the future year of the River Valley FFA chapter holds.
EMC Greenplum has pulled a YouTube video it produced that depicted Larry Ellison with a gift box tied to the fly of his pants. It was supposed to be a joke about Oracle’s “cloud in a box,” strategy. Now it has turned out to be an embarrassment and EMC has removed it. Tags:#cloud#cloud computing#Data Centers Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … David Linthicum posted the video late last week. At the time, the video was making the rounds on various video communities. Now we can’t find a copy of of the video on any site, anywhere. The video is part of a series EMC is doing that features a Larry Ellison impersonator as the Exalogic machine and the supposedly cool guy from EMC as EMC Greenplum. The spots are obvious copies of Apple’s “I’m a Mac,” ad campaign. The only problem? These videos are hokey.In this video, EMC makes a joke of Oracle’s pipeline and how big it is. Yes, they also make a joke about artificial enhancement. Classy, huh? When he posted the article on InfoWorld, Linthicum had this to say about the video:Don’t get me wrong: I’m all for having technology company take innovative approaches to marketing, such as stealing premises from Apple and hiring actors that look like billionaire software executives and attaching props to their crotch. However, EMC cloud is missing the core message and, thus, any potential customers it is trying to reach.

That really is about the extent of it. He’s right. Both Oracle and EMC are trying to sell customers on the need to buy millions of dollars in new data center equipment. Is that cloud computing? We hardy think so.But they are not alone. It’s a trend we see emerging from Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft, too. The companies recently announced a new line of data warehouse appliances, designed for companies building private clouds. The $2 million appliances are intended to counter recent offerings from Oracle and IBM. How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud alex williams

And no, it’s not golf again. The former cricket allrounder, who rarely watches cricket these days, has instead decided to push for a hockey training academy in Punjab.The aim: to restore India’s past glory in hockey, and Punjab because most Indian hockey players of the glorious era hailed from this state. The UK-based Laureus Sports for Good Foundation of the World Sports Academy, of which Dev is the sole Indian member, has agreed to contribute to the venture.”In Punjab, children still play hockey, and who knows there may be a champion among them,” says Dev. “Cricket has already got a lot of attention.”Dev is also trying to pilot a similar project in Sri Lanka although he hasn’t decided what the sport is going to be. And it’s not as if the cricketing legend has cut off ties altogether with the game that once brought him fame. He is also promoting a cricket project with another former English allrounder Ian Botham in Ireland.”Sports always promotes harmony and happiness. Crime rate and drug abuse have come down in places where we have launched similar projects,” says Dev.As for cricket, Dev is mum on the proposal to induct him as the Indian team’s bowling coach. “I have to see whether I am capable of it. A good student does not necessarily make a good teacher,” he says. As for Indian cricket? “It’s good to see more medium pacers now. But I have not seen much of the newcomers as I only watch highlights sometimes,” he says.advertisementAnd what about Sachin Tendulkar? “To get the world’s best sportsman award, Sachin needs a year that is his uniquely,” says Dev. He feels Tendulkar has to deliver a great and consistent performance throughout the year, “something like Brian Lara’s domination in Sri Lanka”.Previous winners include Tiger Woods and Michael Schumacher. Now that he has a new goal, here’s hoping Dev can dribble past the obstacles.
