Though the initial U-verse offering is largely analogous to traditional cable television, AT&T is deploying it with an Internet-based technology that can meld video, phone, Internet and wireless communications to deliver interactive features. By contrast, Verizon Communications Inc. has been deploying its new Fios TV using traditional cable technologies, which has enabled it to launch the service in dozens of markets. On the downside, Verizon’s approach to upgrading its network is far more costly than AT&T’s gambit on a more cost-efficient IPTV strategy. NEW YORK – AT&T Inc. on Monday expanded its gradual foray into cable TV, offering its U-verse video and high-speed Internet service to about 5,000 homes in San Antonio. The long-anticipated service, originally slated for a full-scale launch starting in late 2005, is the focal point of AT&T’s bid to transform itself into a multimedia provider of communications beyond phone calls. The initial packages are priced from $69 to $124 per month, depending on the choice of premium channels and Internet connection speeds. The selection includes more than 200 channels of video and music programming, while computer download speeds range from 1.5 megabits per second to 6 Mbps. AT&T also is offering family-oriented bundles starting at $54 a month, as well as a premium Spanish-language package for an extra $10 per month after a promotional three-month discount. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Intel's Xeon 7500/6500 processor series brings the biggest leap in performance in Xeon's history.This level of performance enables consolidation of a ton of older servers onto significantly fewer Xeon 7500/6500 generation platforms...saving a considerable amount of money.For example, IT managers can consolidate up to 20 older single-core 4-socket servers onto a single Xeon 7500 4-socket system representing a 4-socket to 4-socket consolidation ratio up to 20:1. The resulting savings from reduced power usage and OS licensing costs can show a payback of less than a year on the cost of the new server. That's a fantastic payback....and if application software costs and other savings are included the ROI is even greater.Similarly favorable 2-socket consolidation ratios are possible by moving workloads off of older 2-socket systems and onto Xeon 7500/6500 servers.A good example of this comes from Dell. Their engineering solutions teams recently published three technical white papers showing the benefits of consolidating database and virtualization workloads running on older 2-socket servers onto their new R810 server based on the Xeon 7500 processor series. The R810 is a pretty cool, innovative platform with Dell's FlexMem Bridge Technology that allows full access to the entire system memory whether the system is populated with just 2 or the full 4 sockets.The Dell engineers provide a lot of useful technical information. Check the white papers out yourself by following the link below.

SALT LAKE CITY—One day, about 74 million years ago, the situation got real. The oceans of the late Cretaceous were dominated by giant reptiles called mosasaurs; fossilized gut contents have shown that these apex predators enjoyed munching on everything from bony fish to, on occasion, smaller mosasaurs. But an unusual fossil described here today at the Society for Vertebrate Paleontology meeting tells a different story—of a mosasaur spat that didn’t end in anyone becoming lunch. The fossil, of a species called Mosasaurus missouriensis, was discovered in 2012 in a layer of shale by a mining company in southern Alberta in Canada. The reptile was about 6.5 meters long (the length of a pickup truck), with a skull that was slightly less than a meter long. And under one eye, this particular mosasaur’s bony skull also had a large hole where something had bitten into it. The animal survived the attack and the bone was healing around the lesion. But it couldn’t quite heal completely, because the biter had left behind a large tooth (circled). Analysis of the tooth by Takuya Konishi of the University of Cincinnati in Ohio and colleagues suggests that the mosasaur was attacked by one of its own kind and of similar size. Indeed, M. missouriensis had long, narrow teeth designed more for slicing than for crunching, and the animals were liable to lose teeth when chomping into hard substrates. The attack probably came from below, and the researchers say appears to have been a skirmish: They suggest that the fossil preserves an ancient competition between males or a mating behavior, rather than a predatory attack intended to kill and consume. That, they add, makes it the first evidence of a nonlethal mosasaur-on-mosasaur attack.

Paris show lifts taboo on historic outdoor loos Tubino, who added 21 points, had to be pulled out in the second set after her legs went numb as the Lady Troopers tried to keep up with the young Flying Titans’ blistering pace.“We evaluated in the third set and decided to slow down the tempo,” said Reyes. “We are good at it, slow play and quick points.”He told the players to “just hit the ball when it’s over you. Don’t jump too much. No unnecessary effort so we can recover again.”Gonzaga didn’t need much recovery period. Not even after the match.“I can’t feel any fatigue,” said Gonzaga. “Maybe because I have been winning. I am in high morale.”Remember that this is the same hitter who, less than 24 hours ago, scored 15 points to help Cignal HD beat defending champion Petron and stay in the hunt for a finals slot in the Philippine Superliga.“Everything that I do now is just my attempt to repay my coaches for their trust in me,” said Gonzaga of her breakthrough performance since coming back from ACL injury that sidelined her for almost two years.Reyes said it was good test for them because the one thing they dread is playing five sets.“But it’s still early in the conference; I don’t know why we are playing like it’s the finals,” he added.Maybe in the PVL. For Gonzaga, however, she has already raised her game to playoff levels. Because in less than 24 hours, she will again anchor Cignal’s bid to complete an upset in the other league, dethrone Petron and clinch a championship berth.

"I would like to recommend that, should the Ivorian parties make sufficient progress in carrying out these important steps by 4 February 2004 … the Security Council consider authorizing the deployment of a multidimensional United Nations peacekeeping operation to support the peace process in Cote d'Ivoire," he writes in his report to the Council on the latest developments in the West African country.The date set by Mr. Annan coincides with the planned end of the present UN Mission in Cote d'Ivoire (MINUCI) - comprising just 34 military liaison officers - as well as a West African military force known as ECOMICI and the French peacekeeping operation called Licorne.An agreement signed in Linas-Marcoussis, France, in January last year ended fierce fighting between the Government and the rebel Forces Nouvelles.The expanded peacekeeping operation would comprise 6,240 troops, including 200 military observers and 120 staff officers, and a civilian component of electoral, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration, human rights, public information, police, judicial and political advisers.The UN has recently run into difficulties in recruiting adequately equipped military and police personnel for its peacekeeping operations. Should the Council set up the Côte d'Ivoire mission, the Secretary-General says he would urge Member States to provide the necessary resources, though not at the expense of other missions.The report points to a set of challenges facing the country. In addition to the task of disarming and reintegrating the many ex-combatants in the region, a number of other interrelated cross-border problems underlie the instability in Côte d'Ivoire, Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, including "the use of child soldiers, the use and proliferation of mercenaries, flows of refugees and the culture of impunity," Mr. Annan says.He also notes that "neither the Forces Nouvelles nor the Government have taken effective steps to bring perpetrators of human rights violations to justice," citing cases of sexual slavery and rape, as well as harassment of the media and of "so-called foreigners."Members of Security Council as well as troop contributing countries are expected to discuss the report's proposals next week.
