Section 67 of the Mental Health Act 1983 gives the Secretary of State for Health the power to refer the case of non-restricted patients to the First-tier Tribunal (Mental Health).The tribunal’s main purpose is to review the case of patients detained or subject to supervised community treatment under the Act. Anyone, including hospital managers, local social services authorities, nearest relatives and patients themselves, may ask the Secretary of State to consider making a reference to the First-tier Tribunal.These documents include: a briefing on when the Secretary of State can make a referral and how to make a request for a referral a list of circumstances in which applications can be made to the tribunal and an explanation of who can make them
Over the last month, The Tragically Hip have been putting on a series heart-rending and emotional performances throughout Canada. That tour came to a close last night, as the band performed to an enthusiastic crowd at the Rogers K-Rock Centre in their hometown of Kingston, ON.The tragedy of the tour comes from lead singer Gord Downie, who was diagnosed with an terminal brain cancer earlier this year. Rather than spend his final days in a hospital bed, Downie took the band on one final tour, celebrating life instead of waiting for death. That tour came to a monumental close last night, as all of Canada and music fans everywhere tuned in and watched The Tragically Hip’s final performance.The band even took time to thank Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was in attendance at the final performance. The band gave fans three encores, spanning their career with thirty original offerings over the course of the night. Watch the band bring out the song “New Orleans Is Sinking” in the official CBC Music video, below.The full setlist can be seen below, courtesy of setlist.fm.Edit this setlist | More The Tragically Hip setlists
Gish Jen has made a literary career in part from writing about the experiences of Chinese-Americans. During a lunchtime talk at Harvard Law School (HLS), she discussed her latest book, “The Girl at the Baggage Claim: Explaining the East-West Culture Gap,” making the case for the sociological and cultural patterns that influence many aspects of identity.Describing the Western reality as “pit self” (and showing a cartoon image of an avocado person) and Eastern thought as ‘flexi-self” (a bendable Gumby), Jen said Asians think of their identity as closely entwined with family and community, while Americans strive to be independent-minded. Using an image of a lion in the African Savannah to distill her argument, she said the pit self sees the lion while the flexi-self sees the savannah in relation to the lion.Jen got support for her theory during her March 29 talk from a small panel of speakers that included HLS Assistant Professor Mark Wu and Joseph William Singer, Bussey Professor of Law, who gave many pit-versus-flexi examples in business, mental health, and family.Singer, who is also an orchestral musician, recounted the joy in learning to play viola after years of playing first violin. “In the viola, it was much easier to hear all four parts (first and second violin, viola, and cello),” he said. “It gives me the feeling of being part of a group so much.”Panelists Mark Wu (from left), assistant professor of law, and Bussey Professor of Law Joseph William Singer give examples in support of Jen’s theory. Photo by Lorin Granger/Harvard Law SchoolJen even talked about East-West self in the context of plagiarism, citing parents who help their children write papers and assist them in the lab.“I’m not suggesting cheating isn’t cheating. It absolutely is,” she said. But “the boundary that means so much to us in the West simply doesn’t register to Chinese students the same way.”She offered the thought that “most people have both selves latent in them,” and got a laugh from the audience for her explanation of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who credits his team for his success.He is wrongly accused of “phoniness and false modesty,” Jen said, “when, of course, he’s just Asian.”
Introductions first! I work as a Technologist within OEM | Embedded & Edge Solutions, a global sales and engineering division that helps customers integrate the extensive Dell Technologies portfolio with their own Intellectual Property, products and services.Movement towards the edgeIn my role, I frequently get asked about current trends in the marketplace. While many of our customers continue to be focussed on traditional IT targeted appliances and solutions, I’m seeing increasing deployment of IT into the Operational Technology (OT) world with the two combining to deliver the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).If we go back five to ten years, the momentum was all about moving applications to the cloud. However, while many environments and associated applications continue to move to the cloud, the growing trend in OT environments, like factories and transport infrastructure, is now being reversed with compute infrastructure moving towards the edge.What is driving this dynamic?Why? Edge solutions such as pre-emptive maintenance, autonomous or automated systems, AI, command and control systems are all driving the need for lower latency for communications and data access. We’re also seeing higher performance requirements from edge applications and demand for higher edge availability with uptime maintained with or without access to the core or cloud. Meeting these requirements is a big challenge from a far-off cloud or core data centre. Bringing IT infrastructure to the edge is the obvious solution.Connected enterprise edgeWhat constitutes the edge? A typical connected edge environment consists of sensors, IT Infrastructure (compute, networking, storage, data protection) and security, both physical and cyber-security. In this blog, I’ll discuss sensors and IT infrastructure and will separately focus in a follow-on blog on the important topic of security.SensorsThere is a vast range of sensors available today, offering many capabilities, such as component tracking, vibration, humidity, temperature, liquid detection, air quality and many more. From a Dell OEM perspective, in addition to sensors integrated into our own systems, we also use our partner network to source sensors for the solutions we design.Today, many industrial machines and systems already include the full array of sensors with a growing number of manufacturers making the sensor data freely accessible. While there are still a number of manufacturers who continue to keep their sensor data private, end-customer pressure to enjoy open integration is significantly reducing this trend.With the ever-increasing number of sensors now being deployed, customers need to aggregate the associated data in a managed way with only the relevant data being transmitted back to the core or cloud infrastructure for retention and analytics. As a result, we’re seeing Artificial Intelligence capabilities being implemented at the edge, core and cloud. Indeed, we already have a number of customers and partners working in this area, such as Software AG and Noodle AI.Rugged IT infrastructure – our range of optionsMoving onto IT infrastructure, our edge to the core and cloud portfolio, augmented by selected third-party partner solutions, provides customers with a complete and secure platform to deploy applications in any location.For example, the Dell Edge Gateway 3000 and 5000 series offers an extremely rugged platform, extended environmental support from -30c to +70C in operation, extensive wired and wireless connectivity, industry certifications such as marine, military, aviation and transport plus various mounting capabilities and enclosures for enhanced protection up to IP69k. This means that our gateways can be mounted almost anywhere, allowing our customers to deploy software at the edge for data aggregation, edge analytics, control functions and device management. The Dell Edge Gateway also includes multiple options for connectivity, including LTE, WiFi, Zigbee and Bluetooth.For less extreme environmental conditions or where greater performance or configuration flexibility is required, the Dell Embedded PC 3000 and 5000 series provides rugged features with 0C to 60C in operation, greater compute power with up to Intel Core i7 plus greater storage plus PCI slots for expansion.To meet increasing requirements for a high-performance rugged desktop, we also offer the OptiPlex XE3 industrial grade PC, offering 24×7 duty cycle, integrated wireless, dust filters and secure chassis plus added support for GPUs. For rack mount deployments, the Precision 3930 1U workstation delivers a rugged GPU enabled 1U rack mount chassis, with PCoIP integration with Dell zero client endpoints.Rounding out the rugged portfolio, we have the PowerEdge XR2 Rugged and the carrier-grade R740 and R640. The XR2 is designed for extreme operational environments, supporting 40G operational shock, up to 55c inlet temperature and dust filters. In addition to including certification for industrial, military and marine environment, this little beauty is also a VSAN-ready node, offering deployment high availability clustering and HCI deployments at the edge.The carrier grade systems offer other rugged and edge features, including AC & DC power options, dust filters and fire-retardant components. As part of the OEM Embedded and Edge XL programme, we also offer up to 18-months’ extended platform operational life on the PowerEdge XL systems, compared to standard servers.Distributed edge data centre solutions and trendsWe’re currently working with many customers to create edge data centre solutions, offering various levels of performance and ruggedness, enabling our customers to stand up micro datacentres in almost any location.Integration with VMware’s virtualisation and management solutions is also enabling the creation of hyper-converged edge platforms. For example, with edge licensing solutions like VMware ROBO, we can create high availability two node clusters that can be deployed with rugged racks harsh in environmental conditions or even wall-mounted in places like train or bus stations, airports, petrol garages and communications hubs.For deployments with greater processing or storage requirements, we also provide modular datacentre solutions via own ESI team or via partners like Schneider, enabling the deployment of our standard non ruggedised datacentre infrastructure, such as the comprehensive PowerEdge server ranges, VxRail hyper converged platform, the range of Analytics Ready Solutions, maximum storage performance with the PowerMax NVMe platform, the Isilon Scale-out NAS Storage and many more.The futureWhere to next? I believe that this relentless movement of compute, analytics and storage to the edge will continue to accelerate. In this blog, I’ve described some of the technologies and initiatives that we are providing to enable customers to innovate faster, build industry-leading solutions and scale. Watch out for my follow-on blog on security at the edge.What are your thoughts on the Edge? I’d love to hear from you.

Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Two years after he’d graduated from Hofstra University as a history major in 1983, All-American athlete James Metzger—the future chairman, CEO and founder of The Whitmore Group, Ltd., in Garden City—was still tending bar in Bethpage when his determination to dress for success finally paid off. His friends had thought he was nuts when he spent the money he’d saved from serving drinks to buy thousand-dollar Brooks Brothers suits, but the last laugh was on them. That Metzger would later launch one of Long Island’s leading insurance brokerage firms was the farthest thought from his mind the day he stood on line at Brooks Brothers. He had already landed a sales job in the insurance industry but was making more money tending bar one night a week, so he was reluctant to give it up. In that same line of customers he saw one of his largest potential clients, whom he’d already pitched, and here they had something in common. “We were both buying the same tuxedo,” Metzger recalls, with a laugh. Within two weeks, he’d landed the account. But it was what happened next that ultimately changed his life. It was a typical, busy Friday night, and Metzger was working behind the bar, when he spotted the same client come walking in. Thinking fast to create a favorable impression, Metzger vaulted over the side to greet him. “Jim,” said the surprised client. “What are you doing here?” Metzger explained that he was part owner of the bar and checking out some inventory. Still improvising to keep the ruse going, Metzger quietly asked the other bartender if he wanted to work alone that night; he readily agreed, since he’d clear $500.From a payphone near the bar, Metzger then called his boss and said he had to see him tomorrow. For the finishing touch, he bought his new insurance client a drink, still posing as a part-owner of the establishment. When he met his boss the next day, Metzger told him why he had to quit: “I said, ‘I’m making a lot more money tending bar, but I got a job in the insurance business, and one of my largest clients came in.’ That was the last night I ever tended bar.” He says he’s still friends with his former boss, he still buys suits off the rack at Brooks Brothers—and he claims he’s still the same size, 42 Regular.“I was fortunate that I found a profession for which I was well-suited, literally and figuratively,” he tells the Press.When Metzger launched The Whitmore Group in Roslyn Heights in 1989, he had three employees. Now his office is in Garden City, employing almost 90 employees, handling $140 million in premiums annually, and insuring $3 billion worth of fine art in private collections, to highlight a few noteworthy benchmarks. “My business is 30 times the size it was when I started,” Metzger says, adding that his company is now licensed in 48 states. When he began, the funeral industry was 95 percent of his firm’s commercial property and casualty insurance offerings, but today it’s about 15 percent. “We have a very large niche in personal insurance, health insurance, life insurance and estate planning,” he explains. The Whitmore Group has also expanded into real estate, construction, and the hospitality industry. Metzger chose the name for his company when he stopped one day at a pharmacy in Westchester during a business trip upstate, and happened to pick up a list of the 400 richest men in America. “I liked three names: Cambridge, Hamilton, and a guy named Jerome Whitemore III,” he recalls. The first two were already taken by corporations, so he selected the third and changed the spelling to Whitmore. He added “Ltd.” to the company, he says, “so it sounded British!”To anyone who asked about its origins, Metzger would explain that Whitmore was “the name of a gentleman on the board of a Fortune 500 company who was from Liverpool, England, and that he was my financial backer!” Metzger laughs. “That’s the story I tell people.” Metzger grew up in Melville and first made his mark in sports as a star athlete at Half Hollow Hills High School in Dix Hills, where he was the school’s all-time leading scorer and rusher as a running back on the varsity football team. He also started for the varsity basketball team when they were in the county playoffs. In 1977, the year he graduated high school, he won the Lt. Ray Enners Award as Suffolk County’s outstanding lacrosse player. In further recognition of his prowess, he was the only high school athlete picked to play in both the North-South All-Star Football game and the North-South All-Star Lacrosse game. As a sophomore at Hofstra University, Metzger was named to the 1980 Division 1 All-American lacrosse team.He claims that he weighs today what he weighed when he played lacrosse at Hofstra. “I think if I put my uniform on today I would look the same, but I wouldn’t have the same results!” he says, admitting that he’s cut back on working out and is focused more on maintaining a healthy diet, although he insists his knees are still “perfect.”As for the business outlook on Long Island, he’s bullish. “We’re in challenging times, but there are a lot of opportunities on Long Island,” says Metzger. “But you better be up for the game, because it’s ultra-competitive. You’re in the major leagues here.”Metzger says that The Whitmore Group is one of the last privately held firms of its size, and for now, he’d like to keep it that way. “One of the keys to the relative success I’ve had is that I hire people smarter than me…who have expertise in areas in which I don’t,” he says. “I rely on them and I get out of their way. I respect them and I appreciate them, and I’m willing to suffer the consequences if I’ve misjudged them. I trust my instincts, and my instincts have been good to me.”Metzger says he’s made many mistakes in his career, but he’s benefitted from them, too. “You learn more from your mistakes and your losses than from your victories,” he says. “I truly believe that!”And James Metzger has the winning record to prove it.
