Share This!Well, it’s official, Bongos is closing this summer.Long a fixture at Walt Disney World, Bongos Cuban Cafe, has been one of TouringPlans readers’ lowest rated restaurants. In our most recent reader surveys, Bongos ranked #192 of the #221 food service locations at Disney World.Serving Cuban-inspired food such as black bean hummus, BBQ guava ribs, empanadas, and churrasco, Bongos couldn’t keep up when faced with competition from the numerous restaurants that moved into the WDW shopping district during its transition from Downtown Disney to Disney Springs.The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the Bongos locations in Miami and in Hollywood, Florida will also be closing. The WDW location will stop serving in August, 2019. No word yet on what will be replacing Bongos at Disney Springs.
Balanced Architecture to Optimize PerformanceUsing data from these multiple sources effectively will be best achieved with a balanced architecture: modernized compute, storage, network, and optimized software are critical to optimizing performance, capacity, and cost.First, consider whether the workload is appropriate for scale up or scale out. Scale out workloads typically utilize parallel processing, where Intel Xeon E5, and also potentially Xeon Phi Co-processors do the best job. Big data repositories are a key area of value, enabling analytics to both improve clinical operations and enhance research. In addition to processing, Hadoop software and high bandwidth, low latency network adapters are key elements.Other workloads require a scale-up approach and the Xeon E7 Family of processors: enterprise systems like EPIC and SAP, OLTP databases, analytics and virtualization – Intel has worked with leading software providers in each of these areas to optimize execution on Intel architecture. High core count, large memory capacity, and new TSX technology where threads can share memory are all needed. And beyond the processor, consider SSD storage and low-latency networking to yield best overall results.Not to forget, optimized Operating Systems also play a large role. For example, Intel has teamed up with Red Hat to optimize RHEL on Xeon. A whole list of key features enable world class performance – scalability, security, serviceability, reliability, availability, power optimization, and storage and network enabling with systems running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. EPIC customers, for example, can see tremendous savings and scalability improvements (over ~8M GREFs!) by running their Cache DB tier on the latest Xeon E7 V4 systems. We’ve created a Total Cost of Ownership tool which you can use with your Red Hat or OEM rep to evaluate your specific environment utilizing Epic configuration guides. We will be hosting a Webinar in June on Red Hat and Epic, details will soon be available.So as you address healthcare data convergence, remember that an architecturally balanced solution with the right components for the task will help you take best advantage of your computing dollar.Contact the author via LinkedInPersonalized Medicine and Analytics in Intel’s Health and Life SciencesLeading advances in using Big Data in the Healthcare IndustryBigger Data for Better Healthcare whitepaper We hear a lot about the desire to take advantage of Big Data. In healthcare, there are four sources of data that can make healthcare more personal and capable:Clinical and claims data captured at clinics, hospitals, pharmacies and insurers including diagnosis codes, prescriptions, program notes, claims, vital signs, test results, etc.Diagnostic data captured by medical devices and imaging equipment.Consumer-generated health data captured outside the traditional health system and including patient diaries, observations of daily living, vital sign monitors, fitness wearables, online and smartphone apps, social media and gaming, etc.‘Omics’ – vast amounts of information contained in each person’s genome (and proteome, metabolome, etc.) used to attack disease at its molecular roots – collected at multiple sites, across time, and in structured and unstructured formats.

Universal Pictures Universal Pictures, part of Comcast Corp., became the first major movie studio to commit to the “4% Challenge,” a bid to rectify the lack of female directors in Hollywood.Universal Pictures’ Peter Cramer, Focus Features’ Peter Kujawski and DreamWorks Animation’s Margie Cohn proudly join their colleagues throughout the industry in accepting the #TIMESUP #4PercentChallenge. https://t.co/llVyB2W8Rn @TIMESUPNOW— Universal Pictures (@UniversalPics) January 29, 2019As part of the campaign, which refers to the percentage of films directed by women over the past decade, the studio said it plans to work with at least one female director on a feature film in the next 18 months. The challenge was kicked off at the Sundance Film Festival this year by producer Nina Jacobson and director Paul Feig, among others.

But the progress has been particularly slow in Hollywood’s directors chairs. This year, no women were nominated for the best directing Oscar by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.Universal Pictures’ pledge was backed by the head of production, Peter Cramer; Peter Kujawski, chairman of its Focus Features division; and DreamWorks Animation President Margie Cohn.While hiring one woman in 18 months may not seem like a huge step, it’s a sign of progress in an industry where movies are planned years ahead of time.“This is big,” Melissa Silverstein, founder and publisher of Women and Hollywood, said on Twitter after Universal’s announcement. “This is a studio pledging to work with women.”By Anousha Sakoui | Bloomberg Facebook LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment
