Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In a hotly contested category, the Limerick duo behind the very popular establishment Lorraine Fanneran and Bruno Coppola were “thrilled and delighted” with the win noting their surprise at the announcement. The pair credited their staff, loyal fans and customers as the restaurant continues to thrive since its refurbishment earlier this year. The Italian themed slick operation, frequented by many players from the Munster and Irish rugby teams, took the award ahead of the likes of Le Bon Crubeen, Dublin, Avoca, Kilmacanogue, Sol Rio, Mayo and No. 27 in Antrim – all provincial winners in the category. The awards took a different element this year by including scoring from “mystery guests”, public text votes, menu submissions as well as the expert opinion from a panel of judges.

The Women’s Progressive Organisation (WPO) paid tribute to former President, the late Janet Jagan by way of a wreath-laying ceremony on the occasion of her ninth death anniversary on Friday last.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo was the guest speaker at the event, which was held at Babu Jaan, Port Mourant, Corentyne.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo along with members of the WPO at the wreath-laying ceremony on FridayThe Chicago, US-born Janet Jagan served as President of Guyana from December 19, 1997, to August 11, 1999. She was 77 years old when she succeeded her husband, Cheddi, after his passing, becoming the first female President of Guyana. She previously served as the first female Prime Minister from March 17, 1997 to December 19, 1997.Jagan was awarded Guyana’s highest national award, the Order of Excellence in 1993, and the Mahatma Gandhi Gold Medal for Women’s Rights in 1998.She also served as a Member of Parliament and as Minister of Home Affairs, Labour, Health and Housing.In 1963, Time magazine described her as “the most controversial woman in South American politics since Eva Peron”, partly because she was a “strident Marxist” who many believed was the “brains and backbone” behind Cheddi’s Government.Addressing the hundreds at Babu Jaan, former President Jagdeo referred to the late leader as a fighter. He said the challenges we face today were nothing compared to what she experienced.“Cheddi Jagan and Janet Jagan in the darkest days never lost hope, they kept our party intact, they kept their minds focused and changed this country. They fought for independence and got it, and then for the return of democracy, and so, the challenges we face now are nothing compared to what they faced, so we in this generation should not lose focus,” Jagdeo stated.Nevertheless, Jagdeo called on the women present to take up more active roles in the Party while advocating for more women to join the WPO.He said women in the PPP have an enormous role to play. Meanwhile, he urged the WPO to set a target of getting to 5000 members.

brian proffitt Tags:#Big Data#cloud computing#small business 2013 is going to be a 12 full months of hype surrounding the Big Data craze, with tantalizing tales of e-commerce analytics that will move beyond predicting pregnancies to doing something really cool: like figuring out the Last Twinkie Ever Bought.As the hype continues, smug enterprise IT departments will whip out their thick wallets and plunk down serious coin for multi-cluster hybrid cloud Hadoop systems that can figure out the worldwide effects of a butterfly wings’ flapping before brunch and knock out the Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything before afternoon tea rolls past.Meanwhile, poor and tattered small business IT managers will look enviously on this feast of big data as they huddle out in the cold, shivering as they wrap themselves in tiny spreadsheets and Quickbook invoices.Big Data Doesn’t Have To Be That WayIts easy to get that impression when thinking about Big Data, but the reality can be far different: While enterprise-level datasets can be costly and difficult to manage, there’s no reason analytical and visualization techniques can’t be applied to small- to medium-sized business (SMB) datasets – on an SMB budget.Plugging small businesses into big data is not a new idea (see Intuit CEO: Big Data Can Be The “Great Equalizer”). Perhaps the most popular approach to solving the problem includes “Big-Data-as-a-Service” options.There are two large obstacles to taking on big data methodologies, according to Amit Bendov, CEO of Tel Aviv-based SiSense. The first is breaking past the barrier of cost. SAP HANA appliances, which Bendov holds up as an example of what he’s talking about, can handle about half a terabyte of data, with a price tag of $500,000. That may work for the enterprise, but is nowhere near realistic at the small business level.The second obstacle is the notion of complexity: Right now, the impression is that you have to have full-blown data-scientist talent on the payroll in order to figure out your own data. That’s hogwash: “I know my business very well,” Bendov said. “I don’t need statistical languages to figure out what the data means. I just need to see the data.”SiSense Tries To Solve The ProblemBendov’s company is in the business of making that happen. Working with a customer’s existing data stores, SiSense will pull the data into a columnar database that’s either hosted by SiSense or held locally by the company. Customers can then use whatever tools with which they’re familiar – from Excel spreadsheets to SQL-based databases – to mine the data for the information they’re seeking.General-purpose hosted data services like SiSense or sector-oriented vendors like LeisureLink in the hospitality industry represent a new front in the Big Data cycle: taking the expense and complexity down several levels so smaller businesses can get at least some of the benefits of data analytics without the pain.It’s not a bad idea: by acting as the middle man to handle the hard parts of Big Data management, these vendors are essentially running Big Data co-ops.But there are risks with this approach. While SiSense has a local-hosted option, some vendors do not… so you’ll need to decide where your comfort zone is with storing critical company data in the cloud. You will also need to decide if your data actually has enough value to recoup whatever costs you will have to outlay if you work with these vendors. That’s a bit of a Catch-22 for many smaller companies, since you may not know your data’s value until you can pull it together and mine it for useful information.The best option is to shop around with various vendors, perhaps carrying in a subset of your data and seeing what can be done with it – and at what cost. Perhaps most importantly, this can also give you a sense of how much of a learning curve will be involved in getting up to speed with a new service.Big Data options are out there for businesses of all sizes, just be sure you understand the benefits versus the risks.Image courtesy of Shutterstock. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Related Posts IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…
On Nov 28, the makers of Aamir Khan’s upcoming film Dangal released a video which showed how Aamir Khan gained weight up to 97 kg to portray the older Mahavir Singh Phogat on screen and then lost a drastic amount of weight within five months to sport no less than six packs.While releasing the video, Aamir had said, “I would like to mention that putting on weight and losing it so fast is very unhealthy. I did it for my film under the supervision of experts, but it is very unhealthy for any regular person.”On December 2, a week ago, fitness expert Ranveer Allahbadia released a video on YouTube where he suggested that Aamir might have had used steroids to get his physique right for Dangal.ALSO READ: This statue of Jesus Christ can give Dangal’s Aamir a run for his moneyALSO READ: Aamir’s physical transformation for Dangal is impressive but unhealthy ALSO READ: While SRK-Salman get close, it’s Aamir who’s left out Now Aamir’s fitness coach Rahul Bhatt, who trained the actor to achieve the weight loss in six months, is neither denying nor confirming the charges.Speaking to DNA about Allahbadia’s insinuations, Bhatt said, “It would amount to breach of confidentiality for me to talk about this. All I can say is, steroids are an occupational hazard in the entertainment industry. It would be nave to believe that its consumption is nil, and to deny its existence.”When Rahul was asked if his non-committal reply meant that he is admitting to Aamir’s use of steroids, he clarified that he is simply not at liberty to talk about his methods.advertisement”I am not admitting to anything. Just how my client got that physique, or how any entertainer gets into shape is a matter between the client and the coach. I am not at liberty to talk about this,” Rahul said.On a final, more personal note, Rahul added, “Let’s put it this way. If I had a son and he wanted to be an actor I’d never let him mess around with steroids. And only a qualified fitness coach can guide you through a proper regime where you don’t mess up your metabolism with mindless abuse.”Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal is the story of real life Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat who trained his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta Phogat to become world-class wrestlers. While Aamir plays Mahavir Singh Phogat, his daughters Babita and Geeta are played by Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh respectively. The film is releasing in theatres on December 23 this year.WATCH: Aamir’s fat to fit journey for Dangal
