I have been going here for a little over 2 years now, and I trust them, they are also growing and improving and that is a good sign. Gloria is a gem at the front desk

Jan 19, 2017 Jackie C.

I would just like to say thank you to Pat and his employees for the excellent service he gave to my Son regarding his oil change. Something was wrong with his car after the oil change and here it was the oil filter they fixed the problem and gave my Son a free oil change to fix the problem. Great Job. Thank you again for your service it is greatly appreciated since I live in Ohio and my Son is in Florida it mean a lot that there are still companies out there that take care of their customers.

Jul 15, 2016 Paul C.

These guys are great especially Doug. Called me with a problem about fixing my window and he found a way to fix it. The best.

Jul 04, 2016 christian a.

those guys know what they doing, my service was excellent,im really happy.

May 18, 2016 Les S.

Wonderful, even checked my tire pressure! Outgoing, friendly team!

May 03, 2016 Isac R.

Very positive experience. Everything was handled very professionally. I have been taking my vehicles there since 2011 when I moved to Naples and with a brand new car purchase will continue to use this location. I am not one to recommend places and services to others but will certainly speak positively to others about my experiences.

Sep 11, 2015 Janice T.

I came in for an oil change, Marcos was the manager, he was polite, courteous, and very helpful. This is such a refreshing change from the normal, ” I don’t really care” attitude, take good care of him, good employees are very hard to find.

Feb 02, 2015 Miguel R.

I am giving a great compliment to Atiba for his customer service at this location. Atiba always tried to do the best for his customers. even that must of the time he is there by himself. Tuffy as a Company should reward this guy for his work ethics and great service.

Oct 24, 2014 Judy B.

I highly recommend this Tuffy! They were very flexible and accommodating. It took a couple of appointments and a lot of determination to find the issue. But they did! Thank you, Perry and Robert!

Jul 28, 2014 Pamela E.

They were very friendly and helpful. I had an oil change and tire rotation. They found things wrong, but did not pressure me to allow them to fix them. They also told me what to watch for. For example; leaky hoses and such. I would recommend them for an oil change. Also the waiting room is nice, with free coffee, and it was very clean.

May 31, 2014 Chansee L.

I have never been to have my car serviced at a better place. The service was fast, the help were wonderful and price very reasonable. I very highly recommend them!

Mar 20, 2014 Mike B.

Nobody likes to pay for car repairs. This was the best expierence I have ever had. I had the pleasure of working with Geff he is extreamly knowlegeable of cars and provided above and beyond customer service. Geff made my expierience so wonderful I will never go anywhere else.

Oct 11, 2012 Karen H.

I have been using this Tuffy location since 2009, not long after it opened on Vanderbilt Beach Road. My 2003 Mustang will be turning over 100,000 miles this week and it runs like a new car. I cannot say enough to praise the knowledge and professionalism of this staff. Tuffy knows my car probably better than I do and they are helping me to take the very best care possible of my Mustang. THANK YOU.

Mar 21, 2012 Tom J.

I needed a front end alignment for my car. The technican showed me there was a problem with the tires and recommmended replacing them. The manager, offered up several choices and recommended the best tires for the money, and it was far from the most expensive. He was very professional as is his crew. The tires arrived the next day as promised and when I showed up I got right in. I’d recommend this Tuffy Auto Center to everyone who needs quality work done at a fair price. And, if you’re a car guy or gal, the crew here will talk with you about cars as long as you want! It was an enjoyable experience.

Oct 17, 2011 Chad L.

I discovered this Tuffy location a little over a year ago and have had friendly service and quality work every time. They have gone above and beyond for my car time and time again. I would recommend them to anyone.

Call Recording for Call Center and Contact Center Quality Assurance #call #recording,


Call Center Quality Assurance

  • Do you know if your new operators mention the up-selling options?
  • Could you train your operators using real life best practice call material?
  • How much information is lost in your front office in a regular customer complaint?
  • Did your operator really say what the customer claims?
  • Can you record only one side of a call to protect customer privacy?

Quality management process for contact centers

With hundreds of thousands of new call center seats being added every year around the world, the call center industry is growing with no sign of slowdown. As call centers and call center projects get larger, maintaining high quality customer communications becomes a challenge.

Quality recording and agent evaulation

With Verba Recording System you will find technical solutions that will allow you to replay calls for evaluation and see the screen of your operator to analyze how your software tools where used during the call. Call and screen analysis closes the quality loop in your call center, allowing you to plan more effective operator training and design more optimal resource allocation.

The Verba solution for Quality Assurance

The Verba Recording System can record a sample of all calls in a contact center and let supervisors manually go through calls and review service quality. Using feedback from call recording you can greatly improve the quality in your operations.

We need to retrieve calls several times a week, search and playback is very easy. Sound quality is stunning.

What is Verba?

Our name, Verba, comes from the Latin proverb Verba volant, scripta manent . Literally translated, it means spoken words fly away, written words remain . It originally comes from a speech of Caius Titus of the Roman Senate, who suggests that spoken words might easily get forgotten, but written documents can always be conclusive in public matters. If we want to establish an agreement, it is better to put it in writing, rather than just having a verbal agreement. The Verba name fits our mission: help organizations document the spoken word in phone calls and other verbal communications, so it can be used in the same manner as written material.

Who we are

Verba Technologies is a leading provider of call recording and quality management solutions for unified communications and contact center platforms that support voice, video and telepresence devices. Verba solutions expand unified communications platform capabilities with reliable, scalable call recording and quality management technology. Founded by industry veterans from the call recording, unified communications, contact center and software development fields with over 60 years of combined experience, Verba takes an innovative approach to call recording and quality management by offering a product with more features, better technology and a lower price point.

Understanding the Basics of STEM Education #stem #education,understanding #the #basics #of #stem


Understanding the Basics of STEM Education

What is STEM Education?

With all the acronyms that determine hundreds of different areas of education, it is easy to confuse them all. Since 2001, the letters STEM have been a normal part of educational vocabulary.

The acronym STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This program was started by Judith A. Ramaley. the former director of the National Science Foundation’s education and human-resources division. This approach to education is designed to revolutionize the teaching of subject areas such as mathematics and science by incorporating technology and engineering into regular curriculum by creating a “meta-discipline.”

There is more; STEM Education attempts to transform the typical teacher-centered classroom by encouraging a curriculum that is driven by problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning, and require students to actively engage a situation in order to find its solution.

Integration of Curriculum

The four parts of STEM have been taught separately and most of the time independent from each other for years. By adopting the STEM philosophy Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics all play an integral part in the teaching of the whole. The science, engineering, and mathematics fields are made complete by the technology component that provides a creative and innovative way to problem solve and apply what has been learned.

Many STEM education program participants are using highly specialized professional applications at very early ages. Programs that are usually reserved for college-level classes such as computer animation and CAD programs are being implemented in high school classrooms across the country as part of the STEM education initiative.

Benefits of Program

Since its implementation, critics have questioned the program’s ability to teach all students equally. This argument is a difficult one to hold, since it has been proven that the education system in general has been tailored to the needs of female students over the past twenty-five years in its focus on verbal concepts.

All students benefit from the STEM program because it teaches independent innovation and allows students to explore greater depths of all of the subjects by utilizing the skills learned; these skills are going to be required in order for today’s students to be tomorrow’s global leaders. All jobs are requiring workers to have a greater ability to think critically, work as a member of a team and independently, and close the performance gap between our American students and those being produced in other countries.

Our Role and Responsibility

In recent years, there has been a significant decline in the number of college students choosing majors in science or technology related fields. Much of this has to do with poor preparation for the classes during high school and the intense work required outside of the lecture setting in places like laboratories. Students have chosen easier majors and courses of study in place of taking on the fields that they wanted to enter due to poor preparedness. If the graduation rates continue with this trend, there will be a workforce shortage in areas of engineering and science fields.

The United States needs to be more competitive and build new standards for our students. The National Science Foundation “estimates that 80% of the jobs created in the next decade will require some form of math and science skills.” In order for our children to see the advancements in their generations that we saw in ours, it is important that they have a well-balanced education that includes STEM elements, as well as, traditional classes in the Arts. STEM education is designed to teach the “whole” student and in turn will make them more successful members of society.

The next step is a dilated eye exam to check the healthiness of your eyes and discuss your options.

Berkeley Eye Center uses two different lasers to perform the LASIK process. The first laser, the Femtosecond Intralase, is used to create a flap. This flap is lifted and folded back to allow the second laser, a Visx Star 4, to correct your vision. The procedure itself only takes a few minutes, and most people are able to resume normal activities the next day, without the need for glasses or contacts.

Our commitment to providing the latest technology at convenient locations for our patients is one of the many reasons so many Houstonians have trusted Berkeley Eye Center for their LASIK procedure. With affordable payment and easy financing options to fit each patient s needs, there s never been a better time to have LASIK at Berkeley Eye Center! Call us today or request a FREE consultation.

At Berkeley Eye Center, exciting breakthroughs in cataract removal and lens implantation are allowing cataract patients to once again enjoy the vision of their youth. Thanks to advances in surgical and intraocular lens technology, patients undergoing cataract surgery at Berkeley Eye Center today have many options to consider that can dramatically affect their vision after the procedure.

In the past, many cataract patients still needed to wear reading glasses and/or bifocals after cataract surgery. Today, we offer new multifocal lens implants designed to reduce and in some cases eliminate your dependence on corrective eyewear after cataract surgery.

With the addition of our new LenSx femtosecond laser, we now also have the ability to offer our patients the benefits of Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery. Our laser technology for cataract surgery provides computer-guided accuracy for many of the critical stages of the procedure, allowing us to set a new standard in cataract safety and precision.

For the added safety, comfort and convenience of our surgical patients, Berkeley Eye Center developed the Caplan Surgery Center. This specially designed outpatient surgery center is Medicare-Approved and features two state-of-the-art operating suites. The facility only provides eye surgery, allowing us to offer our patients unsurpassed service.

When it comes to cataract surgery and lens implantation, our goal is to help each patient make an informed decision on which cataract options are best suited for their individual needs. Your lifestyle and the role your eyes play in the activities you enjoy most will play an important role in helping us customize a cataract surgery plan that is tailor made to fit your needs.

Payment and Financing Options

At Berkeley Eye Center, we offer convenient payment and financing options* for various procedures and services. Use your Flex Spending Account or Health Savings Account for LASIK, eye exams, glasses, contacts, or even prescription sunglasses!

*Subject to credit approval

Routine Eye Care and Optical
We accept most vision plans for routine eye care and optical purchases and most medical insurances for medical eye care. We welcome cash-pay patients, as well.

With easy payment options and flexible financing options available through Care Credit and Wells Fargo, there s a payment plan at Berkeley Eye Center to fit nearly any budget. Although LASIK is considered an elective procedure by medical insurance, some vision plans will offer a discount off the procedure. Many patients pay for their LASIK procedure through their Flex Spending or Health Savings Account to take advantage of the tax savings.

Cataract Surgery
For patients over 65, Medicare will help pay for cataract surgery and a standard monofocal lens. Thanks to recent advances in technology, cataract patients now have the ability to upgrade their vision in order to reduce, and in some cases, eliminate their need for corrective eyewear. Convenient financing options are available to cover these upgrades, but many patients pay with their flex spending or health savings account to take advantage of the tax savings.

In our 40s and 50s, we begin to experience the frustrating effects of blurry near vision. Reading the newspaper, looking at a dinner menu, seeing the computer screen or sending a text message becomes a struggle. We end up depending more and more on reading glasses or contact lenses to see up close. This natural loss of reading vision is called presbyopia, and it eventually affects all of us, even if we never needed vision correction before.

Emotional Dysregulation Disorder #cornerstone #treatment #center


Emotional Dysregulation Disorder

Emotional regulation is a complex process that involves initiating, inhibiting, and modulating one’s mental state and behavior in response to an external or internal stimulus. The process plays out as follows:

  • An internal or external event (thinking about something sad or encountering someone who is angry) provokes a subjective experience (emotion or feeling).

  • Then a cognitive response (thought), followed by an emotion-related physiological response (for example increase in heart rate or hormonal secretion).
  • Followed by a related behavior (avoidance, physical action or expression).
  • Emotional regulation involves maintaining thoughts, behaviors and expressions within a socially acceptable range.

    What is emotional dysregulation?

    Emotional dysregulation refers to the inability of a person to control or regulate their emotional responses to provocative stimuli. It can also be termed “emotional hyperreactivity.” In life, each individual is repeatedly exposed to events and interactions such as conflict in a relationship, a personal criticism or a perceived abandonment. A person with emotional dysregulation disorder reacts in an emotionally exaggerated manner to these environmental and interpersonal challenges by overreacting: bursts of anger, crying, accusing, passive-aggressive behaviors, or creation of chaos or conflict may ensue. This set of features is often described as part of a high conflict personality. Affective dysregulation or emotional instability, bursts of anger, intense efforts to avoid real or perceived abandonment, and unstable interpersonal relationships point to underlying psychological issues intertwined with dysregulated emotions. Emotional dysregulation is usually relational, meaning it is triggered by a close personal contact such as a family member, child, loved one, ex-loved one or someone who has power or control over that person.

    What causes emotional dysregulation?

    Emotional dysregulation is a feature in a large percentage of psychological or psychiatric disorders in the DSM-IV. However, certain psychological illnesses involve the dysregulation of emotions as a prominent characteristic, especially specific types of personality issues. For example, what is commonly referred to as “Borderline personality disorder ” (BPD) may also be termed Emotional Dysregulation Disorder (EDD), Emotional Regulation Disorder, Emotional Instability Disorder, Emotion-Impulse Regulation Disorder or Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder. Emotional dysregulation is also a central feature of Narcissistic personality and Histrionic personality.

    Psychological trauma including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) may cause significant emotional dysregulation. Persons with PTSD display emotional dysregulation characterized by excessive fear, anxiety, anger or sadness, reactions to a previous severe and often life-threatening traumatic event that are reinitiated.

    Mood disorders, such as Bipolar Disorder and depression feature emotional dysregulation. These disorders have alterations of overall mood such as a prolonged decrease in mood level (depression) or elevation (mania or hypomania). However, they may also feature emotional hyperreactivity, or emotional overreactions to specific events and interpersonal interactions. Panic Disorder or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) often features significant emotional dysregulation. These anxiety disorders can feature emotional hyperreactivity derived from anxiety or stress reactions. Persons with alcoholism or chemical dependency may also struggle with emotion dysregulation.

    Traumatic brain injury, including frontal lobe disorders, are characterized by the dysregulation of emotions, as well as attention deficit issues, impulsivity, poor insight, lack of inhibition, impaired judgment, and depressive symptoms. These frontal-subcortical disorders can result not only from combat trauma, but also from infection, cancer, stroke, previous drug or alcohol use or neurodegenerative diseases. Explosive anger, often directed at family members, is a common occurrence, particularly in individuals in whom impulsivity, disinhibition, and emotional dysregulation are present.

    Get help now. Call us toll-free.

    What is the Prognosis for emotional dysregulation?

    Emotional dysregulation disorder, as discussed, is often a part of a psychological condition. The prognosis for persons who are emotionally dysregulated is highly variable, depending on the severity of their underlying issues. Medication when indicated, coupled with effective psychotherapy, sleep and stress management and psycho-education can significantly improve the quality of life of someone with emotional dysregulation. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) has produced excellent results in helping with emotional dysregulation treatment. DBT teaches the client how to learn to take control of their life, their emotions, and themselves through self-knowledge and cognitive restructuring.

    PCH Treatment Center and emotional dysregulation

    When a person with emotional dysregulation is having serious problems that are negatively impacting their daily life and personal and family relationships, PCH Treatment Center can help. Uncontrolled anger or rage, irritability, sadness or extreme emotional lability signify a need for more immersive treatment. Once per week psychotherapy or medication is often ineffective at managing serious consequences of emotional dysregulation. PCH has a strong record of treating people who struggle with emotional dysregulation (related to psychological trauma and other psychological conditions). We have worked to help improve the lives of many people who have severe emotional instability.

    PCH believes in offering many different modalities to help a person achieve emotional stability. When a client arrives at PCH, they are assigned a doctoral level therapist who performs a complete initial assessment. If a previous diagnosis has been made, this will be carefully evaluated. Improper diagnoses and stigmatizing labels are discarded at PCH Treatment Center. A thorough evaluation is obtained and discussed among the clinical team and an emotional dysregulation treatment plan is developed.

    Relational psychotherapy is the cornerstone to treatment for emotional dysregulation along with Mentalization-based therapies, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Somatic Experiencing or sensorimotor therapy. Anger management, process groups, sleep management, psycho-education, and neurofeedback further enhance each client’s treatment experience. Holistic emotion regulation therapies including trauma-informed yoga, mindfulness meditation and a robust arts program are also important for recovery and healing from emotional dysregulation.

    A family therapy weekend and individual family sessions are available in the Los Angeles area which integrate family members or significant others into the client’s treatment environment (when appropriate). Each client also receives an evaluation by one of our staff psychiatrists. Each Client’s medication regimen is evaluated and adjusted accordingly. Our philosophy at PCH Treatment Center is to focus on holistic healing with the minimal amount of medication necessary.

All of your staff were very courteous and helpful on every visit; from the nice ladies that greeted me and checked me in when I arrived, to those same ladies that wished me a nice day as I left. Thank you and your wonderful staff for the abundance of kindness extended to me.

    Allen Rehberg, Physical Therapy Patient

    Professional…Personable…and…Pizazz are three words to describe Jamie and Faith. They helped me through with exercises for an arthritis problem in my neck, spine, and front upper body. They both were extremely patient in helping me- gosh- after many tries I finally could get the tucks, tilts and breathing. They are both a delight and have the know-how to professionally get the job done and at the same add their own personal touches of care. Thank you Jamie and Faith!

    Angela Gayle Hogan, Physical Therapy Patient

    I started therapy on my right knee on December 14, 2012 and 2 months to the date almost the “Miracle Workers” at Cantrell Center have struck again. There was pain, but I believe in order to move forward that has to happen. Jamie, Cindy, Dina, and Erin are truly miracle workers as far as I’m concerned. I’ve told folks for years that this is the place to come for therapy or wellness. I’m headed back to the early morning group in wellness hopefully this Friday and only because of the world class therapy I received.

    Barry Brown, Physical Therapy Patient

    What can I say but good things about the Cantrell Center! I have used you twice after having two total knee replacements. I had Adrian Baker and Dina Johnson work with me on both occasions, and I couldn’t be happier. We bonded instantly. Adrian and Dina set up a program with me that exercised all the parts of my knees to build them up. They were very good to push me at the pace I could do, increasing me each time. I’ve seen other people who have had knee replacements and some of them haven’t done as well as me. I give all the credit to my doctor, Mr. Ferincola (Hughston Clinic, Colombus) and Adrian and Dina. I would definitely use Cantrell Center and Dina and Adrian. Also, I would recommend all of you!

    Deeana Anderson, Physical Therapy Patient

    “After me total knee replacement, the staff at the Cantrell Center were extremely helpful in getting me back walking normally. Not only did they explain what exercises to do, but they also explained why the were needed. Focused, individual attention by experienced therapists made the difference. They made sure the exercises were challenging and performed correctly. Linda and Cindy were especially helpful, though the entire staff was always kind and courteous, The Cantrell Center is far superior to the PT I received from a different provider a few years ago after hip replacement. I can’t thank the Cantrell Center enough and absolutely recommend their services.

    David Pierson, Physical Therapy Patient

    I had total left knee replacement by Dr. John Waldrop, Hughston Clinic, on October 31, 2012. I started physical therapy at The Cantrell Center on Monday, November 5, 2012. Adrian and Cindy were my therapists and were instrumental in my rapid recovery. Both ladies pushed me hard but the results were excellent.

    Warner Paris, Physical Therapy Patient

    The staff members [at the Cantrell Center] were both professional and caring while working with me to improve my balance problems and my strength. With their support and guidance, both areas have markedly improved and I now plan to join the wellness program. Please share my heartfelt appreciation with Mary Oakley, Erin Bennett, Elizabeth Newman, and Cindy Rice, for their tolerance and encouragement throughout the months. These ladies provided challenges and patience along with professional expertise.

    Dave Harvey III, MD, Physical Therapy Patient

    Once the prescription for the therapy sessions was complete I felt I needed to continue at Cantrell and thought about a membership. My wonderful Wife knew how much I liked going there so she gave me a full membership for a Christmas present and she could not have given me anything better. I thoroughly enjoy my time at Cantrell and especially the time in the pool. Donna is always there with a big “Hello” and I have gotten to know several other people like myself who see the value in the pool and gym exercises. My knee feels great, I have no pain at all and I look forward to going to Cantrell 3 times a week. The entire Staff is simply awesome and I highly recommend anyone who has arthritic problems to see their Doctor first but get into the program at Cantrell as soon as possible. You will see results in a very short period of time.

    Charles Chuck Fenske, Wellness Member

    I went to my Orthopedic Doctor and after x-rays and tests she determined I had osteoarthritis. She highly recommended I do physical therapy to strengthen my leg muscles. She gave me a prescription for the therapy but I had no idea what this was all about. Being fairly new to the Warner Robins area, I went online and found the Cantrell Center. I went there and was immediately impressed with the Staff and their genuine interest in helping me. I met with Jamie Lochner, who put together a gym/pool regiment for me and I started the therapy. I worked with Jamie in the gym but then also worked with Cindy Rice in the gym and the pool. Cindy is so great, she made me work hard but we had fun in the process. Both Jamie and Cindy are great to work with and make you feel like they really care about your issues. I looked forward to going to Cantrell every week and could tell that my legs were getting much stronger and the knee pain was gone completely.

    Charles Chuck Fenske, Physical Therapy Patient

    After trying various types of rehab and pain management, I heard about Cantrell. I signed up for arthritis group water therapy with Donna Amos as the instructor in 2012. Donna has done an excellent job of keeping me mobile and keeping the pain level manageable. Cantrell has so many plus features – a heated pool, with a handicap entrance, adequate parking, a friendly, knowledgeable staff, very clean facilities, information on coming events, the location is excellent, overall the facility is very attractive, fees per month are very reasonable, and there are so many programs and choices to meet the needs of most everyone. If I come early, I feel welcome to visit the lovely waiting room, read the paper, and Charlie (my three wheel walker) and I will have a cup of coffee. Thanks to all at Cantrell! I love Cantrell!

    Pat Reisinger, Wellness Member

    My sister, Stacy, who has Down Syndrome, has been a member of the Cantrell Wellness Center for fifteen months. Thanks to the combined efforts of her trainer, Mark, and Donna, the leader of her water walking class, Stacy is now fifty-three pounds lighter. Mark and Donna and the rest of the staff and members of the Center have become like family to us. Everyone knows Stacy by name and cheer on her efforts. The first year Stacy stuck to water walking. The results of her water walking class were so successful that this year she added land exercises to her membership and has been rewarded by even greater endurance and a more toned body. We are both grateful to the Cantrell Wellness Center and recommend it to everyone we meet.

    Laurel Marple on behalf of Wellness Member, Stacy Marple

    Thanks to the outstanding therapy provided by Natalie and Cindy….during my 6 week session. These two very professional therapist and wonderful ladies took my concerns and well being to heart and dealt with my health concerns amid all of my complaining and discomfort and made it very enjoyable to be in their therapy sessions. They would always listen to what I had to say and give the appropriate advice and therapy session with superb professionalism. I will always recommend the Cantrell Center to anyone that I know requiring therapy. I can’t say enough good things about Natalie and Cindy. Thanks ladies for helping me get thru this tough time in my life. If I ever need therapy again, (which I hope I don’t) I will be at your center requesting Natalie and Cindy to be my therapist. Once again, thanks for helping me get on the road to recover.

    Mack Walton, Physical Therapy Patient

    One of [Dr. Michael Renner’s] recommendations was to join the Cantrell Center. The instructors are fantastic. They would give me individual attention before and after class with certain exercises that gave me difficulty. After a few weeks of going six day a week, my 24 hours of bed rest is reduced to 8 hours. I can do regular activities around the house, and drive without pain. I feel normal. I am doing things now that I thought were impossible just a few years ago. I was recently blessed to take my wife out to dinner and a movie on New Year’s Eve (something that seemed impossible before I joined the Center). It is truly wonderful to now that the Cantrell Center is there, and will be a big part of my continued recovery. A big thank you to all the staff at the Cantrell Center. You guys are a blessing.

    Carle History

    For nearly a century, Carle Foundation Hospital and Carle Physician Group have shared a vision for providing high-quality health care.

    The history of these entities began in 1918 when Margaret Burt Carle Morris left $40,000 to the City of Urbana, Ill. for the purpose of starting a hospital. Her donation led to the creation of The Urbana Memorial Hospital Association. Her name Carle has been maintained, an enduring testimony to the roots of the organization.

    In 1931, J.C. Thomas Rogers and Hugh L. Davison, two physicians from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, moved to Urbana and opened what was then called Carle Memorial Hospital and the Rogers-Davison Clinic. Housed in the abandoned Eastern Illinois Medical Sanitarium, the Clinic and 15-bed Hospital introduced the concept of multi-specialty group practice to the area.

    Though the Clinic and Hospital were separated into two distinct organizations in 1946, they were reunited on April 1, 2010 and continue to provide high-quality health care and advancements in medical research.

    Together known simply as Carle, Carle Foundation Hospital and Carle Physician Group are proud of a long history bringing world-class health care to the residents of east central Illinois.

    In Connecticut prison, it s the inmates leading counseling

    Connecticut counseling center

    SOMERS, Conn. (AP) — Imprisoned for killing a man, Edward White initially feared retaliation when he learned an acquaintance, his fellow inmate, was his victim s nephew.

    For a time, the inmate stopped speaking with White. But he ultimately offered forgiveness, an act that White credits to the peer counseling program through which they met.

    Prison logic will tell you it s supposed to become violent, said White, 35. If we didn t have the opportunity to meet in the program, who knows how he would have reacted.

    White told his story one day last week to visitors including Connecticut s top federal prosecutor and several federal judges. They were all gathered inside a chapel at Osborn Correctional Institution to learn how the inmates are coaching one another to accept responsibility, respect themselves and others, and ultimately prepare for life after prison.

    A half dozen inmates, including killers and former gang leaders, gave a presentation on their program, known as Skills of Socialization, or SOS, before chatting over coffee and cinnamon buns with dignitaries including the senior U.S. judge for the district of Connecticut, Janet Bond Arterton.

    U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly said the soaring rates of recidivism for convicts in the U.S. are not sustainable and she wanted to highlight the inmates work.

    It s important for you to know there is support on the outside, Daly told the prisoners.

    The program, launched two years ago by seven inmates serving lengthy sentences, involves an eight-week curriculum and outside speakers. Its leaders described to the judges how they came to grips with their own anger, born in some cases of childhood trauma, and how they teach their peers to realize how their actions affect others and move beyond a criminal lifestyle.

    It is unusual for inmates to develop peer counseling programs themselves, although they have far more credibility with the prison population than any outsiders, according to Brad Brockmann, executive director of the Center for Prisoner Health and Human Rights in Rhode Island. He said prison administrators typically are reluctant to give inmates much leeway.

    Peer education in and of itself is a critically underused resource in prisons and jails nationally, particular when you understand the greatest underused resource in prisons are prisoners themselves, he said.

    Unlike many prison-run counseling programs, this one is voluntary, and participation has no impact on release dates. Still, there is a waiting list with 200 inmates, and any participant who has a disciplinary infraction is sent to the back of the line.

    We like to get to these guys early. We can change their thinking, and we can change their lives, said Tyrone Whitaker, one of the program s founders.

    The program has been credited with reducing recidivism and disciplinary infractions among its graduates. The leaders also have been working with at-risk youths outside the prison and have been cleared to volunteer at other state prisons to spread their message. A local businessman, Michael Gambino, is helping the group to develop job-related training.

    White, of Hartford, has served more than half of a 20-year sentence for manslaughter and is focused on being there for his daughter when he is released.

    I have to do what s right in here in order to make it out, he said. This group has given me so much hope.

    Data Center Consolidation: Benefits and Costs #data #center #consolidation #benefits


    Data Center Consolidation: Benefits and Costs
    September, 2007

    IT executives are under a never-ending mandate to increase the value they deliver to their organizations. Yet, in recent years, overall increases in IT spending have been somewhat limited. Therefore, to fund new development, IT managers need to find ways to reduce the cost of supporting existing systems. Fortunately, for many firms, there is a large opportunity for cost savings: reducing the number of data centers in the organization.

    This Research Byte is a summary of our full report, Data Center Consolidation Reduces Costs and Improves Performance .

    Many organizations have multiple data centers, even though a smaller number of data centers would be sufficient. This situation may be the result of one or more corporate acquisitions that bring new data centers into the network. Because those data centers support the target company’s systems and processes, it is often easier to leave them operational. Over a period of years or decades, some organizations find themselves with three, four, or even more data centers when they may need only one or two.

    The costs for maintaining those additional data centers can be significant. Each must be staffed with computer operators, production control personnel, system administrators, facilities engineers, and other operational specialists. Hardware assets are most likely underutilized, as excess capacity must be maintained to handle spikes in demand for each individual data center. Some level of management personnel duplication probably occurs, as data centers may be in different time zones, or different parts of the world. Additional software licenses need to be maintained. Many other costs can be found to be duplicative among the various data centers.

    Some duplication of data center assets is advisable to provide the basis for disaster recovery and business continuity. Yet many organizations have multiple data centers that exist not for reasons of business continuity but because efforts have not been taken to rationalize the number of data centers. Clearly, then, data center consolidation should be a fundamental strategy for many IT organizations.

    Data center consolidation is a popular strategy showing powerful economic characteristics. Major organizations are reaping the benefits of consolidation, as shown by the following examples:

    • Hewlett Packard is cutting its 85 global data centers down to six–three of which will be mirrored disaster recovery sites. HP expects this move to save the company $1 billion annually.
    • IBM is consolidating 3,900 servers into 30 virtualized mainframes running under Linux. The company anticipates an 80% reduction in energy usage while significantly shrinking its current 8 million square feet of data center space.
    • Microsoft is well along in its data center consolidation efforts, producing a savings of $23.2 million–a 40% cut in its pre-consolidation spending levels.
    • Williams-Sonoma, Inc. is moving 100 stand-alone servers onto five IBM Regatta Unix servers. This effort eliminated the need to add 50 more stand-alone servers next year to handle increased processing demands.

    The effectiveness of data center consolidation in driving costs out of IT is shown in the popularity of this strategy. Figure 1 shows the adoption trends in data center consolidation by company size.

    This full version of this report investigates the benefits of data center consolidation and provides recommendations based on our findings. Based on our survey of over 200 IT organizations, it provides the following metrics:

    • A comparison of IT spending per user in companies with single data centers to those with multiple data centers
    • An analysis of data center consolidation adoption trends based on organization size.
    • A summary of the return on investment (ROI) experienced by organizations undergoing data center consolidation as well as their experiences with actual consolidation costs versus budgets.

    The full report includes recommendations for maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risks of consolidation projects.

    The proliferation of data centers that many organizations have experienced through mergers and acquisitions can be reversed with a thoughtful consolidation strategy. Concentrating computing resources into a small number of physical locations can boost the productivity of IT assets and personnel and simplify their management. Most organizations will realize quantifiable returns from such efforts.

    The Texas Data Center Phenomenon #data #center #austin


    The Texas Data Center Phenomenon

    Rich Miller on August 16, 2007

    The state of Texas has been a major player in the data center boom. The first wave of growth was driven by the success of the state s many dedicated hosting companies, including The Planet, EV1Servers, Rackspace, C I Host, SoftLayer, Layered Technologies and VeriCenter, among others. In the past several years, Texas has become the hot spot for stand-alone enterprise data centers attracted by the fact that the state had its own power grid and cheaper electricity than other major Internet markets.

    The growth has established a number of Texas cities as destinations for data center site location, which in some cases are now battling one another for new projects. Here s a look at the Texas data center map and recent developments for Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston and El Paso.

    The early growth of the Telecom Corridor in Richardson helped put the Dallas market on the map for data center development. Around the same time, the Infomart was evolving into a major carrier hotel. The city has also benefited from the growth of a vibrant crop of web hosting companies, including The Planet, C I Host, DataSide (Collocation Solutions), SoftLayer, Layered Technologies and Colo4Dallas.

    Recommended: El Paso Seeking Data Center Projects

    While Dallas is the most mature of the state s data center markets, it continues to attract new projects, including a planned 1 million square foot data center campus in Richardson by Skyrise Properties, which also recently bought a Ft. Worth data center from Hillwood Development Company. Behringer Harvard recently bought a facility in Arlington.

    The capital city snared one of the largest enterprise data center projects when Citigroup chose Austin for a $450 million facility in Georgetown. It is the latest in a series of corporate stand-alone data center projects the region has attracted. Hewlett-Packard is building two major facilities in Austin, while Lowe s has a $126 million data center in the works. That s in addition to Zydeco Development s proposed data center park and plans by Digital Realty Trust to expand its Austin facility.

    Microsoft s decision to build a $550 million data center in the Westover Hills area has been followed by announcements of data center projects by the NSA, Stream Realty and Christus Health. The San Antonio Economic Development Foundation said it is working with five other companies looking at San Antonio for new data center sites, including some speculative projects. One new project is driven by the growth of a local success story: Rackspace Managed Hosting will invest $100 million to convert a vacant San Antonio shopping mall into its headquarters, and plans to add 4,000 new employees over the next five years.

    Houston means Big Oil, and many local IT providers have sprung up to support the industry s needs. But Houston was also home to one of the dedicated hosting industry s juggernauts. EV1Servers (Rackshack) was founded as a spinoff of local ISP Everyone s Internet, and the popularity of its $99 servers made it one of the biggest hosting companies in the world by 2003. The market for new data centers in Houston has been relatively quiet since EV1Servers was acquired by The Planet/GI Partners in May 2006. But things heated up in July, when two managed hosting providers based in Houston were bought in separate deals. Vericenter was acquired by Sungard. one of the largest players in the disaster recovery business, while managed hosting specialist Cyrus One was bought by ABRY Partners. a private equity firm that invests in communications industry.

    With these other Texas cities all attracting data center projects, El Paso wants to get in on the act. The El Paso Regional Economic Development Corp. (REDCo) has begun promoting El Paso as a destination for data center developments, hoping to attract investment and high-tech jobs. REDco president Bob Cook said his group launched an initiative in January to make industrial recruiters aware of El Paso s attributes for data centers. Since then, Cook says REDCo has received calls from two consultants and a company searching for data center sites, he said.

    Spine Surgeon, New York Spine Surgeons: Seth Neubardt, M #spine #surgeon,new #york


    We Believe a Neuro-Ortho
    Spine Surgeon Team is Best

    Two surgical specialists, Neurosurgeons and Orthopedic Surgeons, are qualified to perform spinal surgery.

    Historically, Neurosurgeons have been consulted for operations involving the nerves while Orthopedic Spinal Surgeons were more involved with spinal fusions.

    There are some subtle differences in the training for the two specialties. So for patients undergoing spinal surgery, we feel it s best to have both a Neurosurgeon and an Orthopedic Surgeon present and working together. We call this the Neuro-Ortho Team. As our patient, your team is Dr. Neubardt and Dr. Stern.

    Remember, when it comes to spinal surgery, spend time to pick the right spine surgeon. It may be the most important decision you ever make!

    Meet the New York Spine Surgeon Team of Dr. Stern and Dr. Neubardt

    Seth Neubardt, M.D. is a board certified Orthopedic Surgeon who completed a combined Orthopedic-Neurosurgical Fellowship in Spinal Surgery at New York s prestigious NYU Hospital.

    Jack Stern M.D. Ph.D. is a board certified Neurosurgeon who completed his spine training at New York s Columbia University.

    Dr. Stern and Dr. Neubardt are New York spine surgeons that have been working together for over 16 years, with a focus on complex spinal surgery. They perform over 200 spinal operations a year in a state of the art spine safe operating room. 100% of the surgery is done by Dr. Neubardt and Dr. Stern, without any involvement of residents, interns, medical students or physician s assistants.

    When dealing with the spine, is it better to have an ultra-specialist treat you?

    Studies suggest that the answer is absolutely yes .

    With something as technical and precise as spinal surgery, there is no doubt that you will want a team such as ours that specializes specifically in the spine.

    What Makes Us Different
    Neubardt & Stern Spine Surgeon Team Qualifications

    Here Are 11 Qualifications of the Neubardt / Stern Spine Team:

    We are a team with over 53 years of combined experience treating the spine.

    We are a team that does not treat any other part of the body. We are ultra-specialists and deal only with spinal problems.

    We are a team that provides personal care. We live locally and are easy to reach. Our cell phone number is available to you. Our office phone is always answered by a person, never a machine. We recognize that the idea of spinal surgery can be fearful and we are therefore always available to spend as much time as needed to go over your condition, the alternatives to surgery and the recommended procedure with its associated risks.

    We are a team that believes that less is more and will always use the most micro or minimal access surgery when possible. Our spine surgery expertise runs from Band-Aid percutaneous balloon spinal procedures to open fusions.

    We are a team that makes your safety our number one priority. We will be there for every minute of your surgery to make sure you are safe and well cared for. We do 100% of the operations ourselves. Our team does not have medical students, residents, interns or physician s assistants.

    We are a team that will take care of you after the surgery. When you come back to the office for post-operative care, Dr. Stern and Dr. Neubardt are the only people you will see. We do not have nurse practitioners taking care of you. Even something as simple as removing staples or stitches is something we will do ourselves.

    We are a team that encourages you to try non-surgical treatments first. Both of us have strong backgrounds in holistic medicine and are familiar with treatments from acupuncture to traction. In 1997 we co-founded the Center for Holistic Medicine at United Hospital, one of the nation s first hospital based holistic health centers. If you don t need surgery we won t suggest surgery.

    We are a team that stays on the cutting edge of technology. Dr. Neubardt has several patents on new spinal instruments that are currently in use in hundreds of hospitals worldwide.

    We are a team that believes pain should always be minimized at the time of surgery. We have two physicians on our staff who are pain management specialists. They are available to work with you before surgery to develop a program for your post-operative care which will help minimize pain after surgery.

    We are a team that works in a state of the art Spine Safe Operating Room to ensure that every technological advancement available is used to protect your spinal cord and nerves. As a safety precaution, all of our cases are scheduled with spinal cord monitoring. This monitoring consists of an electro physiologic computer which is operated by a technician who remains present throughout your entire surgery, monitoring the real-time function of your spinal cord and nerves.

    We are a team that is available to you. The procedure for contacting your doctor in a city or teaching hospital requires several layers of communication. Dr. Stern and Neubardt remove these layers by being directly accessible to you. Living and working close by makes this superb service possible. We feel that getting in touch with your doctor is very important. Go ahead and call our office (914) 948-5067 right now to test how easy it is to reach Ellen or Alison. When they answer, just tell them you are testing the phone and they will understand. In an emergency, they will be able to immediately put you in direct contact with Dr. Neubardt or Dr. Stern.

    Eating Disorder Treatment Center For Women and Men #eating #disorder #treatment, #eating


    Eating Disorder Treatment Programs For Women and Men

    Suffering from an eating disorder of any kind—whether it’s bulimia. anorexia. binge eating. compulsive overeating or food addiction —is painful for the individual. Often the person suffering feels isolated, alone, and hopeless, and moves through their life burdened by deep feelings of shame and guilt. The behavior associated with an eating disorder can be confusing to loved ones and friends, creating misunderstanding and leaving them uncertain about what to do and how to support their loved one who is suffering.

    It is not uncommon for us to see clients who are intelligent, and high-achieving, often times accomplished and talented, with a tendency toward perfectionism. This combination of tendencies can make it very hard for them to find a recovery path on their own. In fact, failed attempts to recover on their own can further their shame and guilt. Successful recovery from an eating disorder happens with treatment that helps the client let go of their perfectionistic tendencies, especially as it applies to the recovery process.

    In addition to a fixation with perfection, often the afflicted person suffers from co-occurring difficulties or dual-diagnosis with substance abuse and/or other associated mental health disorders. These can also get in the way of finding sustainable recovery. Grief, loss, trauma and depression can make it extremely difficult for your loved one to escape from their eating disorder because the disordered behavior is a means of coping with negative feelings and stress. We understand and treat these complexities through our multi-disciplinary eating disorder treatment programs.

    We take a holistic approach to recovery, addressing the needs of the client as a whole—their mind, body, spirit, feelings, emotions, and sense of purpose. We also believe that family wellness and support are vital components of recovery. Our eating disorder treatment programs are designed to meet all of these needs. At Rebecca’s House, counseling and holistic methods combined with careful attention to medical and nutritional needs is the key to our clients’ eating disorder recovery. The treatment modalities and levels of care at our eating disorder treatment centers are tailored to the individual and will vary according to the severity of the disorder and the client’s unique needs and strengths.

    Suffering from an eating disorder can be confusing—it can be difficult to determine what level of care you need. That’s where the experts at Rebecca’s House come in. We’ll assess your specific psychological, medical, and nutritional needs, and tailor a treatment program and support system suited to you. Rebecca’s House offers Eating Disorder Residential Extended Care. Partial Day Treatment. Intensive Outpatient and Transitional Recovery Living Programs for Bulimia Treatment, Anorexia Treatment, Binge Eating Treatment, Compulsive Overeating Treatment, and Food Addictions Treatment. Our renowned multidisciplinary treatment team understands what is required to treat eating disorders of every type and complexity.

    If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of an eating disorder, it is critical to seek help now. An eating disorder causes complex psychological problems and often times can cause serious medical conditions. Eating disorders are not limited to girls and women—they increasingly occur in boys and men as well. Expert treatment is necessary, regardless of a person’s gender. Unfortunately, eating disorders are often unrecognized or seen as simply as a self-esteem problem rather than a psychological disorder requiring more than personal conviction and self- control to overcome.

    Often times, an individual suffering with an eating disorder has other conditions that can contribute to or complicate this malady. Every person is different, with unique needs and concerns—this is why an individualized recovery program for Bulimia Treatment. Binge Eating Treatment. Overeating Treatment and Anorexia Treatment is essential. Eating disorders are serious health conditions that can be both emotionally and physically destructive. If left untreated, an eating disorder can become chronic, debilitating, and even life threatening. In fact, eating disorders have the highest morbidity rate of ANY mental health issue and thus require expert treatment with a comprehensive program that addresses the whole person, not just their relationship to food. Eating disorder treatment is necessary for Recovery for a Lifetime .

    Rebecca’s House provides the most effective and long-lasting eating disorder treatment for those suffering from eating disorders. Leader, visionary, clinical therapist, author, speaker, and educator, Rebecca Cooper, LMFT has spent decades developing the best eating disorder treatment protocols. Rebecca’s House was the first eating disorder treatment center to develop an extended-care program model. Today, Rebecca Cooper continues to drive awareness and education internationally for the best eating disorder treatment practices.

    F Many of the Rebecca’s House staff members have recovered from an eating disorder in the past. Their own personal experiences coupled with clinical expertise and the latest eating disorder treatment methods gives them first-hand knowledge of how eating disorders affect people and the most effective ways to help improve clients’ quality of life. During your course of care, we will help you eliminate your unhealthy patterns of thinking, behaviors, and coping methods for trauma and life stressors; we guide you in developing new patterns for healing that that will allow you to live life to the fullest.

    Lincoln Hall Boys Haven #lincoln #treatment #center


    A Rich History Dedicated To The Future

    Lincoln Hall is a Duke of Edinburgh Award Partner

    Lincoln Hall Boys’ Haven has a rich history but it has always focused on and dedicated itself to the future. Founded as a home for Civil War orphans in 1863, it has persevered in its efforts to set itself apart from other institutions that provide specialized services for adolescents by concentrating on teaching them how to learn. By promoting academic achievement, Lincoln Hall Boys’ Haven serves not only the needs of disadvantaged young men, we also serve the needs of society.

    We’re proud of our success in the field and the recognition we’ve received for our work. Most recently, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, founded by Britain’s HRH The Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, in 1956, selected us to partner with them in its international self-improvement program for youth, called The Young Americans’ Challenge. They described our new partnership as an “empowering opportunity” with the goal of “instilling a sense of self-worth and societal responsibility in the next generations of citizens.” Six young men from Lincoln Hall Boys’ Haven have already personally received their DOE Awards from HRH Prince Edward of Britain who heads up the program.

    Meanwhile, in 2012 a new Family Reunification Program was launched on campus. The Family Reunification Program is designed to help children reunite with relatives through intensive clinical assessment and case management. The program, funded by a grant approved through an office of the United States Department of Health & Human Services, serves boys between the ages of 12 and 18 years. Youth enrolled in this program receive all of the services provided on the 454 acre campus.

    We believe that, given the chance, all the youngsters who have the opportunity to participate in the Lincoln Hall experience, including those in our Family Reunification Program, have the potential of becoming responsible citizens who contribute to the community. Indeed, we believe that when you give them structure, consistency and a sense that they belong, you develop in them an ability to make incredible changes in their lives and you give them a desire to learn and succeed.

    To this end, Lincoln Hall Boys’ Haven has implemented the Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports [ PBIS ] initiative with the support of both the New York State Education Department and the Office of Children and Family Services. PBIS sets clear expectations in the classroom, in our athletic program – in all facets of campus life. Its purpose is to recognize students for doing things well.The concept of PBIS permeates through all of our programs at Lincoln Hall.

    John Macken was the first of more than 150,000 youngsters who have attended Lincoln Hall Boys’ Haven since its founding in 1863. In those days it was a new alternative for boys like Macken who otherwise might have been warehoused in asylums or faced involuntary relocation. It was a prominent New York City attorney, Dr. Levi Silliman Ives. who founded the institution that was to become Lincoln Hall Boys’ Haven. Dr. Ives, for whom the Ives School at Lincoln Hall Boys’ Haven is named, saw the potential value of these children as functioning members of the community. He saw that by helping them to succeed in life, he could help society grow and thrive.

    No better proof of the positive impact of the Lincoln Hall Boys’ Haven experience is the numerous visits by alumni who come to the campus to reflect on the lessons they learned here. The compelling stories these graduates tell are an inspiration and, as such, deserve to be shared in hopes that they will encourage other graduates to get involved and stay in touch with us. To these ends, our Web site is proud to feature a new Alumni Page, which will be updated frequently to tell the personal stories of the many youngsters who will always be a part of the growing, far-flung Lincoln Hall family.

    Les plus gros data center dans le monde

    Terra Incognita

    Les data center sont un paradoxe. Sans eux, pas d’internet tel qu’on le connaît aujourd’hui. Pourtant ils restent éminemment mystérieux. Mis à part les managers qui les commandent, les ingénieurs qui les conçoivent et ceux qui les exploitent au quotidien, personne ne les voit, personne ne les connait, personne ne sait véritablement comment ils fonctionnent. Levons un coin du voile en faisant un tour du monde des plus gros data center, existants ou en cours de construction.

    China Telecom Inner Mongolia Information Park – Hohhot

    Le plus gros data center mondial – pour le moment – est la propriété d’un des plus gros opérateurs télécoms mondiaux, China Telecom. En construction au sein d’un gigantesque complexe de 25 kilomètres carrés à Hohhot, la capitale de la Mongolie intérieure, le Inner Mongolia Information Park de China Telecom occupera une surface de 1 million de mètres carrés. Tout cet espace n’est cependant pas dédié à des serveurs. il comprend également un centre d’appel ou des bureaux. Sa capacité totale doit atteindre 100 000 racks et 1,2 millions de serveurs.

    China Mobile – Hohhot

    Non loin de China Telecom, China Mobile, le premier opérateur chinois, va également ouvrir un énorme data center à Hohhot. Il est légèrement plus petit que celui de China Telecom, mais totalise tout de même 720 000 mètres carrés. Et encore, ceci ne vaut que pour les deux premières phases du projet. une troisième est en préparation.

    China Mobile – Harbin

    La troisième place du classement est également occupée par China Mobile, avec un second data center qui atteindra 663 000 mètres carrés à terme. Celui-ci est situé au Nord-Est de la Chine, Harbin, une ville proche de la frontière avec la Russie et donc propice aux échanges commerciaux. C’est aussi une ville très froide (température moyenne de 5 °C) donc appropriée au refroidissement d’une ferme de serveurs.

    Range International Information Hub – Langfang

    Le groupe Range Technology Development a lancé en 2011 la construction du Range International Information Hub, à Langfang, dans la province chinoise de Heibei. Ce complexe atteint une surface de 620 000 m2, soit autant que le Pentagone abritant le département de la Défense américaine. Ce data center a été conçu par IBM pour Range Technology et le groupe américain participera également à l’exploitation du site. La construction doit s’achever en 2016.

    China Unicom – Northwest

    Le troisième opérateur chinois s’est lui aussi jeté dans une course au data center et a décidé de s’installer lui aussi à Hohhot. Son centre y sera un peu plus petit que ceux de ses deux concurrents, avec “seulement” 598 000 m2.

    NSA Utah Data Center (Bumblehive)

    Les data center précédents étaient tous la propriété d’opérateurs télécoms ou d’exploitants spécialisés. Voici venir un autre acteur, moins publique. la National Security Agency, l’agence de renseignement américaine rendue tristement célèbre par les révélations d’Edward Snowden. Pour mener à bien ses missions d’écoute des communications, la NSA s’est dotée d’un superbe data center, la Utah Data Center, aussi affectueusement baptisé Bumblehive (la ruche bourdonnante). Bâtie pour la bagatelle de 2 milliards de dollars à Bluffdale dans l’Utah, cette ruche occupe plus de 1 million de pieds carrés, soit environ de 100 000 m2. Sur ce total, seuls 10 % sont des salles serveurs.

    Digital Realty 350 East Cermak

    À égalité avec la NSA (100 000 m2) et toujours américain, mais fonctionnant d’ores et déjà à plein régime, le 350 East Cermak est un superbe data center, en plein coeur de la ville de Chicago. Il est en effet abrité par un bâtiment centenaire, à l’architecture intérieure d’inspiration gothique. A l’origine, ce bâtiment fut construit pour les impressions RR Donnelley, qui produisaient notamment les pages jaunes ou le célèbre catalogue des magasins Sears. Sa conception avant-gardiste pour l’époque fait appel à des colonnes de béton armé. Les planchers peuvent supporter plus d’une tonne par mètre carré. Il est aujourd’hui exploité par Digital Reality un hébergeur abritant les services de nombreuses autres sociétés.

    QTS Atlanta-Metro

    Image 10 sur 13

    Quality Technology Services, comme Digital Reality, possède et exploite des data center dont elle loue les capacités à d’autres entreprises. Son fleuron est le data center Atlanta Metro. 90 000 m2 de surface dans le nord ouest d’Atlanta (Georgie), dont 49 000 m2 de salles serveurs.

    Plus gros européen. Portugal Telecom- Covhila, Portugal

    Image 11 sur 13

    Le titre de plus gros data center d’Europe revient au bâtiment inauguré fin 2013 par Portugal Telecom à Covilha, avec une surface totale prévue de 75 500 m2. Le site se veut également très “Green” utilisant l’air extérieur pour son refroidissement, pour atteindre un PUE de 1,25. En France, Orange a ouvert fin 2013, son data center Normandie. un peu plus petit (64 000 m2 prévus à terme).

    Et Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple ?

    Image 12 sur 13

    Curieusement, les grands noms de l’informatique sont absents de notre classement. Les raisons sont diverses. Ces sociétés ne communiquent pas toujours les détails de leur infrastructure. Google par exemple, ne donne aucun chiffre. Facebook est plus transparent, mais la société ne fait pas la course aux data center géants. elle possède trois centres d’environ 30 000 m 2 et un de 45 000 m 2. De même, Amazon préfère multiplier les centres moyens, cela renforce son infrastructure. une catastrophe sur un site ne touche qu’une petite portion des données.

    Microsoft est moins frileuse et possède plusieurs très gros sites dont un data center de 65 000 m2 à Chicago. Apple est arrivée plus tard dans la course, mais a fait grand bruit avec son centre de Maiden (en photo ci-contre), totalisant 47 000 m2 et alimenté à l’énergie solaire.

    Pike Nurseries, Cumming

    The Cumming store opened in 1998 in the Pinetree Village Shopping Center at Bethelview Road and Atlanta Highway, less than a mile west of The Avenue Forsyth and GA 400.

    A short drive from Lake Lanier, the Cumming store primarily serves the residents of Forsyth County, north Fulton County, Hall County, Dawsonville, Alpharetta and Buford. What was once a sleepy recreational area is now a bustling metro Atlanta community.

    John was so helpful! I owe him one. He gave me great advice and really helped me out. Thank you. – Ashley

    Terry was most helpful. I was here yesterday and today and she went above and beyond. She is a great asset to the store! – Tootsie

    Faye helped me today for the first time and she was wonderful. Took the time to find what I needed – lots of information, garden knowledge and so friendly. – Anne

    Frank provides superior, excellent customer service! He was so very helpful, patient and knowledgeable. He is an excellent employee focusing on customer service. – Kathryn

    Becky helped us choose a pot and planter today. She was superb! Very courteous, kind and aware of what our budget was. Very impressed with her. – Leslie

    Can I just take a second and give a shout out to Carol at the Cumming/Bethelview Road location. My husband and I came in yesterday because we are considering planting a peach tree on the side of our home. Not only did Carol answer all our questions, but offered a wealth of knowledge that we didn’t even realize we needed to know before making the investment. She took time to explain everything and when we mentioned wanting to plant an herb garden, walked us through the entire herb section offering additional tips there as well – what to plant with what, how to cook with them, and even opened our eyes to the unbelievably amazing Pineapple Sage plant. We left with a few different items, but will definitely be back this weekend for more once the weather warms up. This was my first time visiting a Pike location and I’m completely sold – I felt like I was walking through a little slice of heaven and Carol, taking time out of her day, made it that much more enjoyable of an experience! – Jenn

    Linda provides excellent customer satisfaction! She greets me with a warm smile, is patient to answering my questions, attentive and ready with sound plant knowledge when I need it. Thank you Linda! You have been a “go-to-person” for me at Pike. – Karen
