Stephen Owens to Retire in December

first_imgAfter a distinguished career advocating for strong public defense, Stephen T. Owens, Public Defender of Indiana, is retiring. The Indiana Supreme Court-appointed Mr. Owens to the position in June 2011. Chief Justice Loretta Rush appreciates Owens’ decades of public service, “Steve gave a voice to those asking for a review of their case and because of his dedication to that step, our system includes fairness for all.”Owens came to the State Public Defender’s Office in 1986. He was named the Assistant Chief Deputy of Personnel in 1987. He is a graduate of Illinois College and the University of Dayton. Under his leadership, the Office reviewed thousands of cases, advocated for sentence reductions for clients, and improved services for juveniles. Mr. Owens said, “It has been an honor to work at the State Public Defender’s Office for over 33 years. During those decades, I worked with many accomplished attorneys and staff who were equally committed to representing the rights of indigent defendants. I am privileged to have dedicated my career to this essential office in Indiana’s justice system.”The Public Defender of Indiana is a state-funded Judicial Branch agency that provides representation to indigent incarcerated individuals (including certain juveniles) in post-conviction relief cases to assure the fundamental fairness of the criminal justice system. It provides services in all capital cases. The Office receives about 500 requests from inmates each year asking for their case to be reviewed. The Public Defender is appointed by the Indiana Supreme Court. Details on the process for selecting Owens’ successor will be announced soon.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Inspired by OEM Customers, Dell EMC is First to Market with 1U Rack Workstation

first_imgIn my book, delivering a great customer experience is all about listening and responding. You’re never done and dusted – you have to keep your ears wide open and stay tuned as each customer’s needs keep evolving.For example, some of our OEM customers told us that while they loved the power of our Precision 7920, a 2U rack, dual-socket platform was often more than they needed in terms of performance, scalability and price. Bottom line, they felt that they were paying for functionality they didn’t always need. Size matters for OEM customersSize also matters. Unlike Texas, where bigger is usually better, OEM customers need small form factor products without compromising on performance. Why? Well, they put these systems in seriously tight spots that an IT team in a data center would never dream of. And so, in direct response to OEM customer demand, we decided to design a 1U shorter-depth, rack workstation product.Welcome the Dell Precision 3930Fast forward to today and we’re delighted to welcome the brand new Dell Precision 3930 – the first 1U rack workstation available in the market from a tier one vendor, offering the reassurance of data center security and cloud access with affordable price/performance!Inspired by our OEM customers, this now forms part of the standard Dell EMC workstation product portfolio. And we know from initial reactions, our OEM customers just love the Dell Precision 3930 as it has been designed with them in mind.Ideal for tight rack environmentsAs the saying goes, the best of goods come in small packages. Powered by the 8th generation Intel Core and Xeon E3 processor, the Dell Precision 3930 comes in at 22” versus the standard 24”depth rack.This is ideal for tight rack OEM environments. Picture a control workstation for failure analysis in an industrial automation setting, a robotics control station on a manufacturing floor or a sports stadium, running a video surveillance system. The Dell Precision 3930 fits all these use cases. And of course as it’s a 1U design, it’s perfect for small compute manufacturing solutions.Some don’t mind it hot!On selected configurations, the Precision 3930 can comfortably cope with extended operating temperatures of up to 45C. This means that the product can be put to work where the work is actually happening, say the hot factory floor versus needing to be set aside in a cooled data center. And of course, optional dust filters are available for extra tough environments.Optional redundant power supply for failoverTypically, optional redundant 550W power supply units are provided on servers but not on client products. The Precision 3930 bucks that trend by offering an optional redundant power supply.Each power supply unit is capable of powering the entire workstation. In the event of failure, you have the reassurance of knowing that the second power supply will automatically kick in to keep the workstation operating without any interruption. The switch over is completely seamless.Important for the OEM customer experienceThis reassurance is especially important for situations where failure is not an option. Think about it. You certainly don’t want a power failure in a situation where a doctor is performing a cancer diagnostics scan for a patient.Support for double-wide, higher-end graphics & remote power switchSo, what else does this little beauty have up her sleeve? Despite its compact size, you can also enjoy higher-end graphics as the 3930 supports double-wide GPUs. Again, this is especially important for our Medical and Healthcare-focused OEMs. Meanwhile a remote power switch is ideal when the 3930 is embedded in an Industrial Automation or Medical Diagnostics solution or kiosk.Client OS rack workstationIn the past, some of our OEM customers have purchased a 1U rack mount server and would then re-engineer it to support a non-Dell supported Client OS. If you’re in this category, the good news is that you now have a cost-effective workstation solution that perfectly fits your needs.Long-life product cyclesFinally, we know from experience that our OEM customers value stable product platforms. With our OEM XL program, we guarantee that there will be no change to the processor, CPU or motherboard part number of the 3930 XL for the life of the platform. And because we understand that qualifying, testing and certifying your next generation solution takes time, we provide an extended transition period of 18 months from the launch of new, next generation platforms. You also get a minimum of three months’ notice on changes to secondary components, like graphics cards and hard drives.Focus on innovation and not technology churnThis stability allows you the time and space to focus on new innovations versus dealing with certification and constant hardware churn. Thanks to this long-term product roadmap, you can also plan and allocate your budget more effectively.Perfect solution for OEMsIn summary, I believe that the Dell Precision 3930 is the perfect product for OEMs that either require off-the-shelf, rack-based compute devices for solution integration, kiosks or space constrained designs or alternatively need small compute power with the support of a double wide graphics card, extended operating temperature and long life-cycles.OEMs – this product is for you! Keep telling us what you need – we’re listening.What’s your reaction to the Precision 3930? I would love to hear your comments and questions.To learn more about Dell EMC OEM, visit: https://www.dellemc.com/en-us/oem/index2.htmKeep in touch.

Januzaj unfairly treated – Moyes

first_img Press Association But Moyes was not happy at the treatment Januzaj received from the home players, and fears the 18-year-old is going to get injured if something is not done to prevent the rough-house tactics. “Just a bit,” said Moyes, when asked if he felt Januzaj was being kicked. “In every game, I don’t know how many tackles there have been on him. “That is why I am annoyed with fourth officials and referees. He is definitely not getting protected and before you know it the boy will get a sore one. “It is terrible what they (the officials) are allowing to go on at the moment. They (opposition players) are queuing up to see who can kick him next. “(Matthew) Lowton was booked but there were that many tackles on him from different players. “It is a recurring theme and it’s the referees’ job to sort it out. You would hope they would recognise that. “Adnan will just get up, walk away and get on with it. That is one of his biggest attributes.” Danny Welbeck’s first-half brace and Tom Cleverley’s first Premier League goal in nearly a year were enough for United to stave off the threat of a hat-trick of defeats. Darren Fletcher’s return after almost a year out with a chronic bowel complaint put further shine on an impressive day for the visitors. Manchester United manager David Moyes has called for more protection for Adnan Januzaj after accusing Aston Villa’s players of queuing up to kick the youngster in Sunday’s 3-0 win at Villa Park. Not surprisingly, Villa boss Paul Lambert rejected the assertion of his team being over-physical. “My team are not a physical team,” said the Scot. “We are a young side and maybe sometimes over exuberance gets the better of them but I have never sent anyone out to kick them.” It was Januzaj’s bullet header that provided the rebound for Welbeck to tap United in front. The England striker, selected in the absence of Robin van Persie, was netting for the first time in the Premier League since the opening day of the season and quickly added another when he swept home Antonio Valencia’s cross. “It is really important for Danny,” said Moyes. “He is a forward and he needs to get himself goals. He got two poacher types today and he could have had another. “With Robin out he stepped up to the mark. When you get opportunities, you show what you can do. Danny certainly did that.” There was never any doubt over the outcome once Cleverley had struck from Wayne Rooney’s lay-off, allowing Moyes to end Fletcher’s near 12-month absence with a chronic bowel complaint, that has plagued him for almost three years. “If anybody returns from an illness to play professional football on this kind of stage for a club like Manchester United, it shows a lot about the boy himself,” said Moyes. “He has had to be on his own, he has been in and out of hospital, he has had operations. “Today was a big message to a lot of people – keep believing. “If you are not well then keep believing that you can get yourself right.” Fletcher declared himself satisfied at his comeback. “I always believed I would come back,” he told MUTV. “Other people around me were trying to make me think otherwise, but I stayed strong and believed I would get back. “Playing a game like that, and getting an ovation like that, makes it all worthwhile.” Moyes confirmed Shinji Kagawa was still struggling with the after-effects of a sickness bug, whilst Javier Hernandez was ruled out after taking a kick on the head in training. Although the result has not done much to alter United’s league position, it at least provides a platform for them to kick-on, starting in Wednesday’s Capital One Cup quarter-final at Stoke. “We are getting closer but it has to be more consistent,” said Moyes. “We could have scored more goals but the all-round performance was much more like us and I am pleased with that.” Lambert was less pleased, with striker Christian Benteke a particular disappointment as his run without a goal reached 10 games. “He will come through it,” said Lambert. “His endeavour was there. He is not getting the breaks he had last year but he will go through stages like this in his career.” last_img read more
