Hi guys!

I know now It's a bit to early to announce it but I have to do it.

A company that takes the graduation picture has asked the office if we want to take the picture this semester, however only a few students will graduate or leave this semester. It's our choice to decide if we want to take it this semester or next one. the best option would be to take it next semester but I'd like to hear some opinions too.

Dell set to launch public cloud service



Dell will launch its first cloud infrastructure service later this year through a partnership with VMware, continuing its push to move beyond PCs and into higher-margin software and services.


The service will be based on VMware’s vCloud platform and delivered from Dell’s data center in Plano, Texas. Customers will be able to rent compute and storage capacity on a pay-as-you-go basis, or on longer-term contracts that include reserved or dedicated hardware.


Dell will also offer consulting services for companies to build private clouds in their own data centers, also using vCloud. And it will offer to build “hybrid” clouds using VMware’s Connector software, which links private and public cloud environments.


The moves will intensify Dell’s rivalry with IBM and Hewlett-Packard, which are also building public cloud services. And they will put Dell into competition with service providers such as Amazon Web Services, Verizon Business and Terremark -- some of whom are also its customers.





Japan Trade Minister Quits After Radiation Gaffe


Japan’s new trade minister resigned Saturday over a remark seen as insensitive to nuclear evacuees, dealing a blow to a government that took office just eight days ago in the hopes it could better tackle the daunting tsunami recovery.


"A series of my remarks caused serious distrust among the poeple, especially the people of Fukushima," Yoshio Hachiro said at the news conference. "I seriously reflected on my remarks, and I made the decision to step down."

Noda, Hachiro, and other government ministers were visiting the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant Thursday when Hachiro made his verbal gaffe. He called the desolate evacuation zone around the plant "a town of death" and later told reporters he just meant to convey the seriousness of the situation and his commitment to decontaminate it so residents can return.

According to local news reports, he also joked with journalists, saying, "I’ll give you radiation," referring to radiation on his clothing during his visit to Fukushima might be contagious.

With Hachiro out, Noda will now have to find a quick replacement to lead one of the most powerful ministries in Japan. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry oversees a vast portfolio of policies—including nuclear energy—and is a key player in reviving Japan’s slumping economy.




Drinking over recommended limit raises cancer risk


Drinking more than a pint of beer a day can substantially increase the risk of some cancers, research suggests. The Europe-wide study of 363,988 people reported in the British Medical Journal found one in 10 of all cancers in men and one in 33 in women were caused by past or current alcohol intake.


More than 18% of alcohol-related cancers in men and about 4% in women were linked to excessive drinking. The study calculated that in 2008 current and past drinking habits were responsible for about 13,000 cancer cases in the UK, out of a total of 304,000 cases.


Previous research has shown a link between alcohol consumption and cancers of the oesophagus, liver, bowel and female breast.


When alcohol is broken down by the body it produces a chemical which can damage DNA, increasing the chance of developing cancer. Of the cancers known to be linked to alcohol, the researchers suggest that 40% to 98% occurred in people who drank more than the recommended maximum.
