Cisco donates $88,000 in computer equipment for Champlain College’s IT studies

first_imgChamplain College,According to Ali Rafieymehr, dean of Champlain s Information Technology and Sciences Division (IT&S), the new equipment will help students take the skills they learn in the classroom directly to the workplace when they graduate.CISCO DONATES EQUIPMENT TO CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE: (From left) Ali Rafieymehr, dean of the Division of Information Technology and Sciences at Champlain College; Champlain College junior Ben Actis and Jim Hoag, assistant professor and program director of Computer Networking and Information Security show off some of the state-of-the-art computer equipment donated to the college by Cisco Systems for classroom use.Champlain College has received $88,000 in computer equipment that offers students studying computer security, information technology and web development and design a chance to learn their skills on state-of-the-art Cisco Systems equipment. Cisco Corporation is an important entity in today s computer networking and security environment. Their technology is prevalent in enterprise networks throughout the world, he noted. Cisco s generous donation provides our students with access to state-of-the art technology and enhances the hands-on learning environment.Champlain offers a wide range of areas of study and majors that will benefit from the new equipment, including Computer Networking and Information Security, Computer and Digital Forensics and Computer Information Technology. This donation provides an opportunity to associate networking and security concepts taught in courses with a new generation of hardware. Our students gain experience with current technology prior to entering the workforce. We are grateful to Cisco for their interest in the next generation of networking and security professionals and their generosity in this donation, according to Jim Hoag, an assistant professor and program director in Computer Networking and Information Security at Champlain. It was Hoag who learned about the Cisco donation program at a conference last year and wrote the detailed application to secure the equipment from the Cisco Critical Infrastructure Assurance Group (CIAG). Cisco Systems donates equipment to enhance the education of students in the field of information assurance. The equipment includes devices used for routing, switching, firewalls, instrusion detection, wireless networking, and Voice over IP communication. The devices will be integrated into the security courses, router course, telecommunication course and senior projects in the Information Technology and Sciences Division courses. Champlain College students will gain hands-on experience with technology that is currently being integrated into networks at all levels in the real world. They will also learn to apply fundamental networking and security concepts to a new generation of devices. In this field, technology is continually changing and one must be able to adapt and understand the impact of the transition, plan appropriately, and implement effectively, Hoag said.The new equipment will be available for advanced studies, Rafieymehr noted, while the older equipment will still be used for introductory course in networking, security and for student projects. Cisco s equipment gives us the capacity to create industry like conditions in the classroom and to create problem solving exercises that have a real world feel. And in today s economic climate, we think that gives our students a strong advantage when they graduate from Champlain and begin their careers, Rafieymehr said.Champlain College, a private baccalaureate institution, was founded in 1878. Located in Burlington, Champlain College is a national leader in educating students to become skilled practitioners, effective professionals and global citizens. It was ranked 12th in the top tier of Best Comprehensive Colleges in the North by U.S. News and World Report’s America’s Best Colleges 2009. Champlain has approximately 2,000 students, presenting 32 states and 17 countries. It has study abroad programs that include campuses in Montreal, Quebec and Dublin, Ireland.

Wood Mackenzie projects massive growth in energy storage installations through 2024

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:For the energy storage industry, the past five years have been something of a stage rehearsal for a market explosion to come, led by the U.S. and China, but expanding to cover markets across the globe.That’s the picture painted by Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewable’s latest report, Global Energy Storage Outlook 2019: 2018 Year in Review and Outlook to 2024. Tuesday’s report projects that energy storage deployments will grow thirteenfold over the next six years, from a 12 gigawatt-hour market in 2018 to a 158 gigawatt-hour market in 2024.That equates to $71 billion in investment into storage systems excluding pumped hydro, with $14 billion of that coming in 2024 alone. This growth will be concentrated in the United States and China, which will account for 54 percent of global deployments by 2024, followed by Japan, Australia and South Korea in a second tier of growth markets, and Germany, Canada, India and the U.K. rounding out the list.And much like the renewables that are driving their growth, the batteries that make up the lion’s share of new storage systems being deployed are falling in price. That’s positioning them for a much broader integration into grid operations beyond renewables integration, Ravi Manghani, WoodMac’s head of storage research, noted in a Tuesday interview: “Over the last five years, the world began to experiment with storage; in the next five, storage will become a key grid asset.”Last year saw global energy storage deployments grow 147 percent year-over-year to reach 3.3 gigawatts, or 6 gigawatt-hours, the report states. That’s nearly double the average 74 percent compound annual growth rate for the industry from 2013 to 2018. In fact, last year’s deployments made up more than half of the total amount of storage deployed in the past five years, “indicating an inflection in storage demand,” Manghani said.More: Global energy storage to hit 158 gigawatt-hours by 2024, led by U.S. and China Wood Mackenzie projects massive growth in energy storage installations through 2024last_img read more

Fantasy Football Stock Watch: Baker Mayfield, Darren Waller among buy-low, sell-high candidates for Week 13

first_imgMost fantasy football leagues have passed their trade deadlines, but heading into Week 13 and nearing the fantasy playoffs, you can still take stock of the guys on your team. Baker Mayfield and Darren Waller are among the players you might want to assess before you make start ’em, sit ’em decisions this week and moving forward.So, let’s dive in to this week’s stock watch. Feel free to shoot me feedback on Twitter @JustinVreeland, and remember to check out Fantasy Alarm for more great analysis like this all season long! MORE: Dominate your league with Fantasy Alarm’s season-long toolsFantasy Football Trade Candidates: Stock upBaker Mayfield, QB CLE: Everyone was done with Mayfield. “He’s trash. I am cutting him. Time to replace him with literally anyone.” Those are a few statements you might have seen. To be fair, the struggle was real, but he has found his groove now and is someone you want to lock into your lineup. He had just one 20-point fantasy performance through Week 10, but he now has back-to-back games in the 20s, including this week’s season-high total of 24.58 points. A matchup with the Dolphins didn’t hurt, but he has good matchups over the next three weeks, as well. He will face a Steelers team that he scored nearly 22 fantasy points against in Week 11, and then the Bengals and Cardinals after that. He can be viewed as a top-10 option at the position for that span of games. If you can still make trades in your league. Anthony Miller, WR CHI: Miller had exactly zero games with double-digit fantasy points through 10 weeks, and he had just one game with over seven targets in that span. Now, in the past two games, he has back-to-back outings with at least 11 fantasy points and has totaled 20 targets in that span (he had 30 targets through 10 weeks). He appears to be Trubisky’s second option in the offense (behind A-Rob) now, which isn’t saying a whole lot in this offense, but it’s an improvement. He is still searching for his first touchdown of the season, and fantasy owners would still be taking a risk using him in their seasonal lineups. However, he is showing enough to warrant a spot on your bench and a look in DFS. He has a nice matchup with the Lions on Thanksgiving Day and could be the Bears leading receiver if Allen Robinson has to deal with Darius Slay in coverage all afternoon.MORE WEEK 13:Waiver pickups | FAAB budget | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOS Jonathan Williams, RB IND: I’ll admit, I didn’t jump on the Williams bandwagon after his strong game in Week 11, but he followed it up with an even bigger game in Week 12, and we have to take it seriously (at least while Marlon Mack is out). He finished with 26 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Colts’ 20-17 loss to the Texans. I am shocked that he racked up that many touches, but it’s clear that he is the Mack (hand) replacement. The Colts gave Jordan Wilkins zero touches in this game. Williams has a matchup with the Titans in Week 13, who just allowed Leonard Fournette to score 36.9 fantasy points against them (Williams isn’t on his level, but it’s not a bad sign). You can continue to roll Williams out there while Mack remains on the sidelines.Jared Cook, TE NO: Cook scored a season-high 21.9 fantasy points in the Saints’ win over the Panthers, hauling in six-of-eight targets for 99 yards and a touchdown. It was his third straight game with at least 11 fantasy points, a total he only reached twice in the first nine weeks of the season. He has really come on strong lately, and the Saints needed a second option behind Michael Thomas — it appears that Cook is just that. He has four touchdowns in the past five games and is locked into a major role right now. He has a matchup with the Falcons in Week 13, who he scored 13.4 points against in Week 10, despite the Saints losing 26-9. You can expect New Orleans to put up more than nine points this time around, and Cook should be in for another strong game. He can be used with confidence going forward and is worth acquiring if you can.WEEK 13 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerFantasy Football Trade Candidates: Stock downDerek Carr, QB OAK: Carr has struggled to take advantage of strong matchups over the past couple games, and it has him nearly off the fantasy radar completely. He had zero touchdowns against the Jets in Week 12, and managed to score just 5.18 fantasy points. He did have nearly 21 points against the Bengals in Week 11, but that was after a 13.12-point performance against the Chargers in Week 10. He has a total of two passing touchdowns in the past three games, giving him 15 for the season. The Jets were able to shut down Josh Jacobs (they’ve shut down backs regularly this year), and Carr was unable to step up against their poor pass defense. A Week 13 matchup with the Chiefs may look appealing for fantasy purposes, but it will likely be Jacobs who bounces back and does all the fantasy scoring for the Raiders.WEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | Y! Cash | Y! GPPEmmanuel Sanders, WR SF: Sanders had a very nice three-game stretch in which he scored 11, 12.5, and 24.2 fantasy points in Weeks 7-9, but he has come crashing down since. Over his past three games, he hasn’t had a single game with seven fantasy points and has totaled 13.2 points in that span. In the 49ers’ 37-8 win over the Packers in Week 12, Sanders finished with just one catch for 15 yards on only one target. That volume is simply not going to get it done, and Sanders’ rib injury probably hasn’t helped matters. George Kittle’s return this week took away a lot of the volume for Sanders, and he was also outplayed and outscored by Deebo Samuel (who looks like the Niners’ top receiver at this point) for the third straight game. His next couple matchups do not look great, and it would be risky to use him in any format. He can be left on the bench moving forward, and if you can still sell him, now is the time.WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endJames White, RB NE: White had at least double-digit PPR fantasy points in all eight games he had played in prior to Week 11, but he now has back-to-back games with fewer than 10 points, including this week’s dud 0.90 point game. He finished with two carries for five yards and hauled in one-of-three targets for negative-six yards. The one good thing with White was his consistency, as he completely lacks upside, having zero games with 20 points and just one game with more than 15, but the consistency seems to have now vanished, too. Rex Burkhead has taken on some of the passing work out of the backfield, and it’s hard to trust White right now in any format.MORE WEEK 13 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup Builder Darren Waller, TE OAK: Waller’s cliff dive continued this week as he finished with 7.1 PPR fantasy points. He hauled in three-of-six targets for 41 yards. It was his fourth straight game without a touchdown, his fifth straight sub-80 yard game, and he is averaging just three receptions per game over his past five games. He has reached double-digit fantasy points just once in the past five games and hasn’t topped 13 points in any of them. This just simply isn’t getting it done, and you can’t really look at him as a “lineup lock” anymore. He is still a talented player, but the Raiders’ passing attack has really struggled lately and will never be explosive. You can still play him on most occasions, but don’t be afraid to consider other options and see what you can sell him for if your league still allows trading. MORE: Dominate your league with Fantasy Alarm’s season-long toolsFantasy Football Stock WatchKaden Smith, TE NYG: You may be asking yourself “Who?!” Totally understandable. The rookie tight end had zero fantasy points through nine weeks and just 1.1 points heading into Week 12 against the Bears. However, he managed to haul in five-of-six targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Giants loss, and that is enough to keep an eye on him given the tight end landscape. No, you don’t need to add him or use him in your lineups, but just take note of him and see how he does if Evan Engram (foot) is forced to miss further action. The sixth-round pick had a productive final season at Stanford last year, hauling in 47 passes for 635 yards and a pair of scores. He doesn’t really have any standout qualities, but he does have strong hands and is physical.last_img read more
