Fun And Games Expected At Hamptons Paddle And Party For Pink

first_imgThe third annual summer “Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink” fundraiser, to be held on Saturday, August 16, 2014, benefiting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation will be an event in two parts — a multi-skill level paddle boarding race and a benefit party co-hosted by prominent New Yorkers Lisa and Richard Perry and full-time Hamptons residents Maria and Larry Baum.The event will bring together hundreds of competitive paddle boarders, spectators and guests in support of raising critical funds for breast cancer research. The race will take place at Havens Beach in Sag Harbor; the party will take place at the spectacular residence of Lisa and Richard Perry.Co-chair Maria Baum, mother of four, investor, entrepreneur, and a partner of Tutto Il Giorno restaurants, took on paddle boarding as an exuberant activity to help her cope through her breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and subsequent recovery. She will once again race alongside longtime paddler Richard Perry and the anticipated 100-plus paddlers. The race will follow World Paddle Association (WPA) racing rules and all racers will be timed with the WPA Blast Race Management System. Following the race, guests will revel at a sunset party.To celebrate the event, you can bid on paddle boards designed and signed by Martha Stewart, Kim Kardashian, Bethenny Frankel, Gwyneth Paltrow, Donna Karan, Tony Burch, Aerin Lauder and more, as well as on the chance to enjoy a private workout with Tracy Anderson and Gwyneth Paltrow. The auctions can be accessed here.Last year’s event, which drew such guests as Edie Falco, Matt Lauer, Martha Stewart, Aerin Lauder, William Lauder, and Donna Karan, raised over $1,200,000 in funds that went directly toward the Foundation. Highlights included heartfelt remarks from the Baums and an inspiring overview of the Foundation’s mission to find a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime from BCRF Scientific Advisory Board Chairman Clifford Hudis, MD (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, MSKCC).Find out more about the event here.The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $500 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis. This year, they invested $45 million in the work of more than 200 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness, BCRF remains one of the nation’s most fiscally responsible charities. They are the only breast cancer organization with an “A+” from CharityWatch, and have been awarded a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator 12 times since 2002.last_img read more

TensorFlow 190rc0 release announced

first_imgTensorFlow Community keeps rolling with updates. The first release candidate for next minor version release 1.9.0 is unveiled today with pretty good list of features, improvements and bug fixes. In its previous version 1.8.0 release, the team paid more attention towards supporting GPU memory, running on multiple GPUs and cloud performance. In today’s release, the team were strong in adding support to Keras, gradient estimators and improvement in the layers. Major features and improvements in TensorFlow 1.9.0-rc0: Updated tf.keras to the Keras 2.1.6 API. tfe.Network is deprecated and can be inherited from tf.keras.Model. Added support of core feature columns and losses to gradient boosted trees estimators. The distributions.Bijector API supports broadcasting for Bijectors with new API changes. Layered variable names changed Bug Fixes in TensorFlow 1.9.0-rc0: The DatasetBase::DebugString() method is now const. Added the tf.contrib.data.sample_from_datasets() API for randomly sampling from multiple datasets. Eager Execution and Accelerated Linear Algebra (XLA) fixed. tf.keras.Model.save_weights by default saves in TensorFlow format. TensorFlow Debugger (tfdbg) CLI fixed. Added “constrained_optimization” to tensorflow/contrib. tf.contrib.framework.zero_initializer supports ResourceVariable. tf.contrib.data.make_csv_dataset() supports line breaks in quoted strings. Miscellaneous changes: Added GCS Configuration Ops. MakeIterator signature changed to enable propagating error status. KL divergence for two Dirichlet distributions. More consistent GcsFileSystem behavior for reads past EOF. Added Benchmark for tf.scan in graph and eager modes. Added complex128 support to FFT, FFT2D, FFT3D, IFFT, IFFT2D, and IFFT3D. Support for preventing tf.gradients() from backpropagating through integer tensors. Supports indicator column in boosted trees. Conv3D, Conv3DBackpropInput, Conv3DBackpropFilter now supports arbitrary. LinearOperator[1D,2D,3D]Circulant added to tensorflow.linalg. Allows LinearOperator to broadcast. For the complete list of bug fixes and improvements, you can read TensorFlow’s Github page. You can also download the source code to access all the exciting features of TensorFlow 1.9.0-rc0.

Elixir 18 released with new features and infrastructure improvements

first_imgIn a blog post yesterday, Elixir 1.8 was announced. It comes with a variety of infrastructure level improvements, faster compilation time, common patterns, and added features around introspection of the system. Elixir is a functional general-purpose programming language that runs on top of the Erlang virtual machine. Custom struct inspections with Elixir 1.8 Elixir 1.8 has a derivable implementation of the Inspect protocol. This makes it simpler to filter data from existing data structures whenever they are inspected. If there is a user struct containing security and privacy sensitive information inspecting a user via inspect(user), will include all fields. This can cause information like emails and encrypted passwords to appear in logs or error reports. Defining a custom implementation of the Inspect protocol avoided this behavior. Elixir v1.8 makes it easier by allowing users to derive the Inspect protocol. Due to this, all user structs will be printed while all remaining fields are collapsed. Passing @derive {Inspect, except: […]} will keep all fields by default and exclude only some. Custom time zone database support Elixir v1.8 defines a Calendar.TimeZoneDatabase behaviour that allows developers to add their own time zone databases. An explicit contract for time zone behaviours are defined, as a result, Elixir can now extend the DateTime API. This allows addition of functions like DateTime.shift_zone/3. The default time zone database in Elixir is Calendar.UTCOnlyTimeZoneDatabase which can only handle UTC. In other Calendar related improvements, Date.day_of_year/1, Date.quarter_of_year/1, Date.year_of_era/1, and Date.day_of_era/1 are added. Speedy compilation and performance improvements Improvements to the compiler have been made over 2018 which makes Elixir v1.8 compile code about 5% faster. The Elixir compiler also emits more efficient code used for range checks in guards, charlists with interpolation, and when working with records via the Record module. EEx templates are also optimized and emit more compact code which also runs faster. Better instrumentation and ownership with $callers The Task module is a way to spawn light-weight processes to perform concurrent work. When a new process is spawned, Elixir annotates the parent process via the $ancestors key. Instrumentation tools can use this information to track the relationship between events occurring within multiple processes. But many times tracking only $ancestors is not sufficient. Developers are recommended to start tasks under a supervisor, as it gives more visibility and control of task termination when a node shuts down. The relationship between code and the task is tracked via the $callers key present in the process dictionary. This aligns well with the existing $ancestors key. In Elixir 1.8 when a task is spawned directly from code without a supervisor, the parent process of the code will be listed under $ancestors and $callers. This feature allows instrumentation and monitoring tools to better track and relate the events in the system. This can also be used by the Ecto Sandbox which enables developers to run concurrent test against the database. It uses transactions and an ownership mechanism in which each process explicitly gets a connection assigned to it These were the major changes, for full list of improvements and bug fixes, you can take a look at release notes.
