Cohen promoted to professor of law at Harvard

first_imgFollowing a vote of the Harvard Law School faculty, I. Glenn Cohen, a leading expert on the intersection of health care, bioethics and the law, will be promoted from assistant professor to tenured professor of law, effective July 1. Cohen has served as an assistant professor since 2008, and as co-director of the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics since 2009.During his time at HLS, Cohen has taught courses in bioethics, health law and civil procedure. His current projects relate to reproduction/reproductive technology, to comparing the way law and medicine deal with similar ethical issues facing the professions, and to medical tourism – the travel of patients who are residents of one country, the “home country,” to another country, the “destination country,” for medical treatment. His past work has included projects on end-of-life decision-making, FDA regulation, research ethics and commodification.“Having been a student, fellow, and assistant professor at HLS, I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities the school has given me and the mentorship and support from the Dean and my colleagues,” Cohen said. “Harvard remains one of (if not the) key hubs for doing work on health care and bioethics, so I am incredibly excited to continue to mentor students, connect with colleagues, and launch new projects at the law school and across the University.”Read more on the Harvard Law School website.

Bring More Applications to the Cloud with Dell Technologies Cloud Validated Designs

first_imgEarlier this year we introduced Dell Technologies Cloud, a set of hybrid cloud solutions. Since the launch at Dell Technologies World 2019, our customers have embraced the vision of a consistent hybrid cloud to improve their cloud experience. By combining the power of VMware Cloud Foundation and Dell EMC infrastructure, they are removing operational complexity with consistent infrastructure and operations across public clouds, private clouds, and edge locations—bringing the benefits of automation, scalability, and agility to their workloads.Today, we’re continuing to drive innovation with Dell Technologies Cloud Validated Designs, which brings cloud to a broader set of workloads that require independent scaling of storage and compute. This new option to consume Dell Technologies Cloud provides deployment guidance for pre-tested Dell EMC storage, compute and networking infrastructure that’s been validated with VMware Cloud Foundation.With more solutions coming soon, Validated Designs are now available for Dell EMC Unity XT and PowerMax storage arrays, and PowerEdge MX servers—which have been the backbone of most companies’ high-value workloads for the better part of the last three decades.Bringing a cloud operation model to enterprise storage Continuing a history of collaboration with VMware, Dell EMC is in the process of validating Fibre Channel (FC) data storage solutions as primary storage for VMware Cloud Foundation workload domains. With FC support coming in October 2019, both the versatile mid-range storage system, Unity XT, and enterprise-class, PowerMax, will support Network File System (NFS) and FC storage classes as primary and supplemental storage for workload domains. This gives customers more deployment choices for workloads that have unique external storage-intensive requirements such as independent capacity.By taking advantage of VMware’s deployment tools, they can drive operational efficiency and rapidly stand up new hybrid cloud environments with attached external storage. In addition, they can also leverage unique enterprise data services such as inline data reduction capabilities, synchronous replication, and more. And for customers with existing Dell EMC storage investments, this delivers investment protection and allows them to easily attach existing data sets to hybrid cloud environments.Rapid resource allocation with a kinetic hybrid cloud foundation Dell EMC PowerEdge MX, along with the onboard management, OpenManage Enterprise – Modular Edition, now supports interoperability with VMware Cloud Foundation based on DMTF Redfish standards. IT administrators can now manage and scale resources dynamically as needed to meet demanding workload requirements. Instead of manually allocating resources, they can now rapidly provision storage, and assign workloads to individual drives across a large network of grouped and connected chassis.Expanded cloud-enabled infrastructure supportCustomers can also expand their cloud-enabled infrastructure by deploying Dell EMC Unity Cloud Edition and the Unity Cloud Tiering Appliances directly from VMware’s new Cloud Market Place. Dell EMC Unity Cloud Edition provides both Block and File capabilities—and can be combined with Unity Cloud Tiering to deliver file tiering to Amazon S3 buckets for both longer term retention and better cost management.Unlocking value and competitive advantages With Dell Technologies Cloud, customers have more choice to build a consistent hybrid cloud environment for their infrastructure. Using Validated Designs, they can now support new and legacy workloads that have infrastructure-intensive requirements in the most efficient way possible with independent scaling of storage and compute.To find out more about Dell Technologies Cloud and Validated Designs, visit our website or download the Validated Designs Solution Brief, the Dell EMC Storage with VMware Cloud Foundation White Paper, or the Cloud-Enabled Infrastructure Solution Brief.last_img read more

Ozil move stuns former team-mates

first_img He said in AS: “I’m a little bit surprised, it’s a shame, and it’s a big loss to the dressing room, on a footballing level and on a personal level too. “He said goodbye to us on Sunday, but I thought he was joking. He’s very different, there’s no player like him in the world. He makes the difference on the pitch. “He’ll have his reasons for moving. But we will keep looking forward, we have other great players. I understand it’s tough for the fans, they loved him. He is a phenomenon and got on well with everyone. It’s a real loss.” However, Ozil revealed in an interview with the German Football Association’s official website, www.dfb.de, that he made the decision to leave because he felt he did not have the faith of new coach Carlo Ancelotti or the Madrid hierarchy. The news of Ozil’s departure caught his former Madrid team-mates unawares. Defender Sergio Ramos said: “Mesut is a different player. If it was up to me he would be one of the last players to go. But he and the club have made their decision and I can only wish him the best. “I get on really well with him. He’s a unique player and it’s a shame. These are personal things, he decides his future. Everyone chooses what’s best and he’s free to do what he wants. “We have a great team and hopefully it will be a great season.” Madrid playmaker Isco, who joined the club from Malaga this summer, added of Ozil’s sale in Marca: “To be honest it has surprised me, and more so after he said last week that he was going to stay. “We all know Ozil, he has a lot of quality and he’s a player who is capable of changing a game.” Alvaro Arbeloa, who like Madrid team-mates Isco and Ramos is currently on international duty with Spain, echoed the thoughts of his colleagues and admitted Ozil would be missed both on and off the pitch. Just hours after Madrid had finalised the world-record signing of Gareth Bale, it was confirmed that the Spanish giants had agreed a deal with Arsenal for Ozil believed to be worth 50million euros (£42.2m). Having proven himself a valuable member of the Madrid squad since joining from Werder Bremen in 2010, it came as something of a shock that the nine-time European champions were willing to let the 24-year-old playmaker go. Mesut Ozil’s former colleagues at Real Madrid have admitted their surprise and disappointment after seeing the Germany international complete a deadline day move to Arsenal.
