Primus Road Tests New Album, Live Debuts 6 Songs For Fall Tour Opener [Video]

first_img[Photo: jocii12] [Video: Zoe TheSol] “My Name Is Mud” Primus is back on the road at long last, with the trio’s performance at Sunken Gardens Theater in San Antonio, Texas, opening their fall tour in promotion of their new album, The Desaturating Seven. During the first set of Friday’s performance, the group worked through a number of fan-favorites from across their catalog, with numbers like “My Name Is Mud”, “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver”, “Last Salmon Man”, and “Too Many Puppies”, working their way across the set after the show-opening “Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers”.Primus Details New Year’s Plans With Supergroup Featuring Tool & Mastodon MembersFor their second set, the trio composed of Les Claypool, Larry LaLonde, and Tim “Herb” Alexander had some special tricks up their sleeve, performing all seven numbers off their recently released album, The Desaturating Seven. Working their way down from the set-opening “The Valley”, the band then moved into a rendition of “The Seven”—the only song from Primus’ new album that has been previously performed in a live setting—before roadtesting the rest of The Desaturating Seven in front of a live audience.Primus Shares New Album “The Desaturating Seven” Inspired By Rainbow GoblinsPrimus’ new album was inspired by Ul de Rico‘s 1978 children’s book, The Rainbow Goblins. Much like Primus’ tribute to the Willy Wonka soundtrack in 2014, the book’s “vibrant and intense and eerie and somewhat creepy” vibe inspired Claypool, who told Rolling Stone, “I remember being incredibly impressed with the artwork and the storyline and the content and the message, and I thought, ‘Wow, this would make a great piece of music.’” Riffing off the album’s origins, visuals from de Rico’s The Rainbow Goblins were projected behind the band for the second set.Dean Ween Sits In With Primus For “Southbound Pachyderm” Encore [Audio]To end the night and to fully welcome in their fall tour, Primus returned with an encore of “Southbound Pachyderm” and “Here Comes The Bastards”.Primus, 10/20/2017, Set Onecenter_img [Video: Zoe TheSol]last_img read more

Deep Learning Gets a Boost with New Intel Processor

first_imgDell EMC Ready Solutions for HPC incorporate the new 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor and Intel® Optane™ technology to accelerate deep learning and other parallel-processing workloads.This week has brought some great news for organizations that want to deploy artificial intelligence solutions on Intel-based Dell EMC systems. Specifically, Dell EMC launched new Ready Solutions for HPC that incorporate the latest 2nd Generation  Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor, code-named Cascade Lake. This processor has all kinds of optimizations for people running parallel workloads.Among other advances, the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor delivers the groundbreaking Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost), known informally as Vector Neural Network Instructions, or VNNI. With this new feature, Intel has reduced the instruction set on the chip, so it will perform faster in the parallel workloads used with many HPC and AI applications, including inferencing. Intel reported that this new technology can increase AI/deep learning inference performance in some applications by up to 17 times compared with Intel® Xeon® Scalable Platinum processors at its announcement.[1]Even when compared to a Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor, (Code named Skylake), the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable shines — which is something that we at Dell EMC have confirmed in the HPC and AI Innovation Lab. In benchmark testing, our engineers have realized more than 3x faster inferencing for image recognition with INT8, ResNet50. These tests compare the performance of a 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Gold Processor 6248 and an Intel® Xeon® Scalable Gold Processor 6148 (Skylake) on an inference benchmark for image classification, as summarized in this slide.What does all this mean other than faster speeds and feeds? Well, it means that AI is the future and Dell EMC and Intel are helping you get there faster with your existing applications. To take advantage of the Intel DL Boost feature, you don’t need to re-program.With the launch of the 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor, Intel also announced two solution architectures for HPC & AI Converged Clusters, both of which focus on augmenting resource managers to support broader workloads. The first is based on the community project Magpie, which automates the process of generating interfaces between analytics frameworks like SPARK and AI frameworks like TensorFlow, so that they can run seamlessly without any modifications to a traditional HPC resource manager such as Slurm.The second is a more integrated solution that builds on the work of Univa Grid Engine and their Universal Resource Broker, an engine that sits alongside a traditional HPC batch scheduler and can interface into resource manager plugins created with an Apache Mesos* framework. Both solutions allow workload co-existence and workflow convergence across simulation & modeling, analytics, and AI.Tests at Centers of ExcellenceIt’s not just Dell EMC that is putting the new 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processor to the test. At least two of our Dell EMC HPC and AI Centers of Excellence, Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) and the University of Pisa, have been testing Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with the new processor.The new TACC Frontera system will incorporate the 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processor, along with new Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory, for extreme-scale science workloads, in fields ranging from medicine and materials design to natural disasters and climate change. When it goes into production this year, Frontera, based on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, will overtake the TACC Stampede2 cluster to claim the title of the fastest university supercomputer in the United States and one of the most powerful HPC systems in the world.[2]The Frontera supercomputer will also incorporate Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory, which is an innovative new technology. Intel says this memory technology increases server memory capacity with DIMM sizes of up to 512GB, accelerates application performance and, unlike DRAM, offers the benefits of data persistence.A side note: Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory is different from Intel Optane Storage.Intel Optane DC persistent memory moves and maintains larger amounts of data closer to the processor, so workloads and services can be optimized to reduce latencies and enhance overall performance. It also supports App Direct and Memory Mode which enable a host of new use data center use cases.   Intel® Optane™ SSDs enable data centers to deploy bigger, more affordable data sets, accelerate applications, and gain critical, enterprise-level insights that result from working with larger memory pools.You can explore these differences at Intel Optane Technology.The University of Pisa, meanwhile, has tested Intel Optane SSDs, as well as the 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processor. The university is collaborating with the IMAGO7 Foundation to use Intel Optane SSD technology to reduce and accelerate the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination process. This collaborative effort determined that Intel Optane SSD technology can significantly reduce MRI scanning time while improving the accuracy of scans.[3]Collectively, the recent advances in the Intel portfolio will make it easier for organizations to dive into parallel-processing use cases, such as inferencing in deep neural networks. And, Dell EMC is making the technologies easier to adopt by embedding them in select PowerEdge servers, and Dell EMC Ready Solutions for HPC.To learn moreFor a closer look at the Intel technologies in play at TACC and the University of Pisa, visit our HPC and AI Centers of Excellence site.

Medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury of the knee

first_imgDefinitionMedial collateral ligament (MCL) injury is an injury to the ligament on the inner part of the knee. This ligament keeps your shin bone (tibia) in place.It can be a stretch, partial tear, or complete tear of the ligament.Alternative NamesKnee injury – medial collateral ligament (MCL); MCL injuryConsiderationsThe medial collateral ligament (MCL) goes from the inside surface of the upper shin bone to the inner surface of the bottom thigh bone.The ligament helps keep the inside portion of the knee joint stable.CausesThe MCL is usually injured by pressure or stress on the outside part of the knee. A block to the outside part of the knee during football is a common way for this ligament to be injured.It is often injured at the same time as an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury occurs.SymptomsSymptoms of a tear in the medial collateral ligament are:Knee swellingLocking or catching of the knee with movementPain and tenderness along the inside of the jointThe knee gives way or feels like it is going to give way when it is active or stressed in a certain wayFirst AidThe health care provider will examine your knee. An MCL test will be done to detect looseness of the ligament. This test involves bending the knee to 25 degrees and putting pressure on the outside surface of the knee.Other tests may include:Knee joint x-raysKnee MRITreatment includes:Applying ice to the areaNonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS)Raising the knee above heart levelYou should limit physical activity until the pain and swelling go away.advertisementThe health care provider may put you on crutches and in a brace to protect the ligament. You may also be told not to put any weight on your knee when you walk.After a period of keeping the knee still, you will be taught exercises to strengthen and stretch the knee. Physical therapy may help you regain knee and leg strength.Surgery is often not needed when only the MCL has been torn. Most MCL injuries can heal with immobilization.If you need surgery, it will require an open incision where the ligament is repaired back to the bone.When to Contact a Medical ProfessionalCall your health care provider if:You have symptoms of MCL injuryYou are being treated for MCL injury and you notice increased instability in your knee, pain or swelling after they initially faded, or your injury does not get better with timeYou re-injure your kneePreventionUse proper techniques when playing sports or exercising. Many cases are not preventable.ReferencesDe Carlo M, Armstrong B. Rehabilitation of the knee following sports injury. Clin Sports Med. 2010; 29:81-106.Singhal M, Patel J, Johnson D.

Waffle House Announces Clemson-South Carolina Is Its Annual “Waffle Wager” Game

first_imgWaffle House logo.Waffle House The Waffle Wager is coming to the Palmetto State.The Waffle Wager is coming to the Palmetto State.For the third year in a row, Waffle House is putting a friendly “Waffle Wager” on a college football game of its choice. Last year, it was Auburn-Georgia, while in 2013 it was Alabama-Texas A&M. This year, the match-up is Clemson-South Carolina, and either Clemson, S.C. or Columbia S.C. will receive free Waffle House based on the result of the game. From Business Wire: “You can throw out the records when the Tigers and Gamecocks take the field, and when you add in the Waffle Wager, it becomes an even bigger event!” said Walt Ehmer, Waffle House President and CEO. “Good luck to both schools, and like the old saying goes, ‘To the victor goes the waffles, coffee and hashbrowns.’”Fans of the winning team will get the free Waffle House goodness at either a restaurant in Clemson, S.C., or Columbia, S.C. If Clemson wins the game, Royal Cup and C.H. Guenther will provide hashbrowns, waffles and coffee for the fans and if South Carolina wins, Basic American Foods will be stuck with the tab. The “payout” date, time and winning Waffle House location will be announced after the game.In addition to the free hashbrowns, waffles and coffee, the winning university’s general scholarship fund will receive $10,000 to help further the education of its students.Obviously, the Tigers are heavy favorites over the Gamecocks this year. But when free Waffle House is involved, anything can happen. [ Dr. Saturday ]last_img read more

The Thunder Are Falling Apart Without Andre Roberson

In a typical year, the NBA’s All-Star break offers the league’s most dysfunctional contenders a chance to reset, take inventory and right what ails them heading into the final stretch before the playoffs. This season, thanks to Cleveland’s moves at the trade deadline, the post-All-Star watch likely will fall to the Oklahoma City Thunder and how it weathers the loss of Andre Roberson, the beating heart of its defense.After an offseason that included acquiring Paul George and Carmelo Anthony to combine with reigning MVP Russell Westbrook, the Thunder expected to compete at the highest levels. It hasn’t worked out that way. The team is 33-26 at the break and has lost six of its last nine games. There are all manner of reasons for this, from the obvious difficulties of integrating three high-usage stars to the decline of key players on an already-thin squad. (Offseason acquisition Patrick Patterson, who was a reliable stretch 4 for years in Toronto, has disappointed and tanked the offense while he’s been on the court.) Despite all that, the team seemed to have figured something out by January, when it ran off eight straight wins on the strength of its defense and a newly thriving offense. But late in that stretch, Roberson went down with a ruptured patellar tendon. He was lost for the season, and the Thunder had a whole new sort of crisis.Roberson is a singular player in the NBA. He is one of the best perimeter defenders in the league, and at 6-foot-7, he has the size and quickness to guard four positions. Roberson’s effect on the Thunder defense is tremendous. He can switch practically any matchup, cover opposing stars and not only challenge their shots but also dissuade them from even attempting them. His defensive Real Plus-Minus — a stat that heavily favors big men — ranks fourth in the league. Overall, the defense was 12.5 points worse per 100 possessions when he left the floor. His effect doesn’t grade out at quite the same level of Golden State’s Draymond Green or Utah’s Rudy Gobert, but he just about maximizes the impact a perimeter defender can have on a game.Or as Westbrook put it: “I think people outside our building, people across the world always complained about different things Andre didn’t do instead of embracing all the great things he did do. I’ve always embraced Andre and I was always very, very happy he was on my team because of things he did on both sides of the ball. Setting screens, cutting, running the floor. A lot of things that you can’t teach.”Those “things Andre didn’t do,” of course, refer to Roberson being one of the worst regular offensive players in the league. Roberson is a notoriously inept and unwilling shooter. He is shooting 22 percent from the 3-point line this season on a diet of wide-open shots the opposing defense is thrilled to see him take. And yet, his overall effect on the offense doesn’t seem to have been as dire as advertised.Since Roberson went out, Oklahoma City’s defensive rating has been 112.3, which would rank 27th in the league, ahead of only the Cleveland Cavaliers, Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns. That’s extreme though not unexpected with Roberson no longer there to cover for weaker defenders like Westbrook or Anthony. But here’s the kick in the head: The team’s offensive ratings has barely budged despite losing one of the worst offensive players in the league, going from 110.9 before Roberson’s injury to 111.8 after it. This is much harder to explain.Roberson didn’t simply deprive his offense of a player who could do a better job of shooting, passing or dribbling. He shrank the court, allowing defenders to roam guilt-free, to harass ballhandlers and make life difficult for anyone establishing post position or running around off-ball screens.So clearly the team would be expected to show more improvement than it has in his absence. But while the overall offense has been flat, the individual stars have thrived with Roberson out. With Roberson on the floor, the Thunder pick and roll barely worked at all, producing just 87 points per 100 chances, according to data from Second Spectrum. It didn’t much matter if it was Westbrook handling the ball (90 points per 100 chances), George (73), Raymond Felton (91) or Carmelo Anthony (94). Without Roberson there, the team’s pick-and-roll points jump to 95. Westbrook and George see especially large jumps without Roberson, landing at 100 and 91 points per 100 chances created on the pick and roll, respectively.It gets stranger: George produced only 77 points per 100 chances on drives with Roberson on the floor; without him, that shot up to 96 — on a significant number of shots. Westbrook, too, goes from 98 points per 100 chances to 105, or the difference between Ish Smith and Victor Oladipo this season. And while Roberson didn’t actually affect the team’s effective field goal percentage overall, both Westbrook and George suffered large drop-offs in their shooting numbers when they shared the court with him.But the Thunder have yet to capitalize on the additional space available with Roberson out. Westbrook has played well in some ways, creating at James Harden/Chris Paul levels on the pick and roll, and poorly in others, shooting just 43 percent from the field and 18 percent from the three in the games since Roberson’s injury. George has been hot from the three — he’s hit at least five 3-pointers in four consecutive games — and has averaged 29.6 points on a 62 effective field goal percentage through those 10 games. But Anthony has gone absolutely dormant, and both he and Westbrook missed two games to injury.There’s plenty to be encouraged by over these past few games. George looks like a different player without Roberson, and all may be right if he and Westbrook are both firing at close to optimal levels by the playoffs. Further, second-year shooter Alex Abrines, seeing increased minutes with Roberson out, has run hot and cold, shooting 35 percent on threes overall since the injury. That should improve over time.But even so, the offense taking a dip despite subtracting a guy who may be the single worst offensive player who’s actually allowed to play s troubling, and Oklahoma City doesn’t have an obvious source of those unteachable qualities Westbrook mentioned — the cutting, the running, the screens. The Thunder’s stars may finally have the room to operate as stars, but its problems are now ones not solved easily by star power.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more

Wrestling No 6 Ohio State faces rival in undefeated No 1 Penn

Ohio State No. 3 senior Micah Jordan, looks for the single-leg takedown against Malik Amine of Michigan in the 149-pound bout. Jordan wins by decision, 17-4. Credit: Sal Marandino | For The LanternOhio State and Penn State is a duel, a clash of the titans pitting 17 ranked wrestlers against each other. The No. 6 Ohio State wrestling team (9-1, 5-1 Big Ten) will take on No. 1 Penn State at home on Friday. The Nittany Lions (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten) won their last match against then No. 4 Michigan 25-11, which kept them undefeated on the season.Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan said both teams are “loaded,” and that it will be a must-watch duel.“This is kind of what you would dream of as a wrestler to be in an event like this,” Ryan said.The Buckeyes are coming off a 27-15 victory against Northwestern on Sunday while winning six of 10 bouts.  Ohio State redshirt junior Kollin Moore, the No. 2 wrestler in the country at 197 pounds, will try and remain undefeated, but will enter as an underdog for the first time all season, taking on Penn State undefeated first-ranked redshirt senior Bo Nickal.Nickal has won two straight NCAA titles and has a 90-3 career record. But Moore said being an underdog does not faze him.“I have been in a lot of big matches and I can wrestle really well,” Moore said. “I think I have proven that I’m one of the top wrestlers in the country.”Ohio State senior Myles Martin, the No. 1 wrestler in the country at 184 pounds and undefeated on the season, will be tested against Penn State sixth-ranked redshirt senior Shakur Rasheed, who has not lost in 15 bouts.Ohio State senior Joey McKenna, the No. 2 wrestler in the country at 141 pounds, will return after missing the past two duels due to an undisclosed injury. He will square off against Penn State sixth-ranked sophomore Nick Lee, who has only lost once this season. “Joey is at another level, there is a handful of college wrestlers that are really elite and [McKenna] is one of them,” Ryan said. “We need to hold our ground and get bonus points when we can.”Ohio State redshirt freshman Ethan Smith, the No. 17 wrestler in the country at 174 pounds, will face Penn State first-ranked junior Mark Hall, who is undefeated in 19 matches.Hall won the NCAA title at 174 pounds in 2017, and has lost only four of his  67 career matches. Despite being in his second year at Ohio State, Smith said he is confident heading into his match against such a prominent opponent.“I can’t put [the match] on a pedestal too much, and let it get inside my head so I’m just going to go out there like it is any other match,” Smith said. “I don’t think I’m afraid to shoot or get in on anyone in the country.”No. 6 Ohio State will take on No. 1 Penn State at St. John Arena at 8:30 p.m. on Friday. read more
