Meagre rate reduction agreed

first_imgA 0.5% reduction in the commercial rate has been unanimously agreed by all of the city councillors, following its proposal by Cllr Diarmuid Scully.The €153,311 saving to pay for this comes from a reduction of that amount in the provision for lump sum payments to retiring members of City Council staff.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr John Gilligan had proposed an increase in the rate by 1% to fund repairs to the water supply in St Mary’s Park but withdrew his proposal when he was given an assurance by the city manager that St Mary’s Park would be dealt with as a matter of priority within the existing budget.Cllr Joe Leddin, who proposed a reduction of 1% in the rate, failed to identify any savings and did not get a seconder to his motion.

The wisdom of William James

first_imgWilliam James, an American philosopher who died more than a hundred years ago, still matters. In fact, a keynote speaker said, he is just what the doctor ordered.In a lecture on Monday, physician and Harvard Medical School Professor Arthur Kleinman discussed the importance of living a fulfilled life based on a deep “moral wisdom,” one illuminated in the writings of James, and the need for such insight in the academic realm.As context for his 2011 William James Lecture at Harvard Divinity School, Kleinman, Rabb Professor of Anthropology in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, described two crises in his own life, a turning point in his professional career more than 40 years ago, and the recent loss of his wife of almost half a century.The events were connected by an old journal yellowed with time. On its pages were pithy comments from 20th-century continental philosophers, compiled by a young Kleinman when he served in Taiwan as a U.S. Public Health Service officer and a National Institutes of Health fellow from 1969 to 1970. Struggling then with the decision to leave his primary care clinic in favor of anthropological fieldwork and psychiatric practice, he searched the copied words for “an intellectual and … moral foundation.”Kleinman returned to the diary after the death of his wife Joan, “while struggling to come to terms with a great sadness, oscillating with aching yearning,” and he drew parallels to those two times of intense uncertainty. “I needed, in both periods, reassurance, confirmation that the very grounds of who I was and what I was doing were real.”But with reflection, Kleinman realized that the running file of philosophical entries couldn’t offer up a “deep wisdom” that would help him face life’s extreme challenges.He ultimately understood that he was asking the wrong question of the philosophy writers, he said, searching their words to understand “experience as a philosophical problem” instead of “experience as practice.” Only in his role as mentor, caregiver, doctor, and teacher has he come closest to the end of that vital quest, he said, through a practice involving action among and for others, what he called “the very art of living.”“My search for wisdom had been a largely unfulfilled quest, but as in the case of caregiving,” he said, “not an unfulfillable one.”Still, his search has been informed in large part by the work of James, the groundbreaking scholar, author, and philosopher considered by many the father of American psychology.For four decades, Kleinman said, James’ prose has aided him with a type of creative back and forth, “from metaphor to rhythm of words, to findings from experience, to major conclusions relevant to my life.”For Kleinman, James became a kind of “intellectual interlocutor who could come right down into my experience and illuminate it from within.”“If this life be not a real fight, in which something is eternally gained for the universe by success, it is no better than a game of private theatricals from which one may withdraw at will,” read Kleinman from James’ “The Varieties of Religious Experience.” “But it feels like a real fight — as if there were something really wild in the universe which we, with all our idealities and faithfulnesses, are needed to redeem.”In dealing with the loss of his wife and the “fierce and joyful love” they shared, Kleinman again turned to James. The wisdom that Kleinman needed to address his grief “came out of my readiness to respond to James’ pushing, at a certain time when I was faced with a problem central to the human condition.”That engagement, said Kleinman, helped him to understand that wisdom needs, above all, to be experienced and is most useful as a “moral practice that redeems our humaneness amidst the inevitable disappointment and defeat.”For Kleinman, James’ take on religion and its relationship to “quests for wisdom” offers similar insights and deserves further academic study.In the face of the uncertainty of the human condition, people turn to religion, said Kleinman, noting that James “saw religion, like philosophy, as a resource for getting through life,” and a way of fortifying the human spirit “not to be afraid of life.”James and his understanding of the “human uses of religion … needs to become more a serious source of interdisciplinary academic discussion,” said Kleinman, “that bridges the study of religions, the social sciences, and the humanities, as well as the helping professions.”last_img read more

Work Smarter and Increase Productivity with the Latest Version of Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise

first_imgWhen you are standing in the data center manually updating another server, do you ever wonder “They have driverless cars and artificial intelligence, why am I still doing IT management manually? There has to be a better way.”?Did you know that up to 75% of downtime is caused by manual and disconnected IT processes[1]? Additionally, many IT organizations are dealing with increased workloads and reduced budgets.These factors make it critical for IT professionals to work smarter. You need a tool that can deliver better results with less time and fewer steps, so you have the time and energy to drive business goals and manage complex IT infrastructure.At Dell Technologies, we believe an intuitive infrastructure management tool should be part of the value we deliver. Introducing our secret weapon: the latest version of Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise[2]. It is designed to take the complexity out of IT infrastructure management.Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise 3 key pillarsSimplifyIntuitive user interface: The console offers a modern HTML5 GUI and deploys as a virtual appliance for VMware ESXi™, Microsoft® Hyper-V, and KVM environments.

OpenManage Enterprise adds plugin extensibility with a new plugin dashboard. Through the same interface, plugins can be easily installed, updated and disabled. The first plugin will be OpenManage Enterprise – Power Manager[3]. No more roaming through different management appliances just to complete essential tasks. “It’s so easy to be overwhelmed by too many features or too much functionality in a management console. Dell EMC OpenManage FlexSelect is a pretty smart approach to making IT management easy for customers.”[4] notes Matt Kimball, Senior Analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy.UnifyOne-to-many: OpenManage Enterprise is a one-to-many systems management console for the data center. With one single tool, you can manage up to 8,000 devices regardless of form factors, such as Dell EMC PowerEdge racks, towers, modular servers, or newly added support for PowerVault MD and ME Storage systems[5].In addition, it allows you to monitor third party infrastructure within the same console. Two birds with one stone.

It saves you time and reduces the risks of costly human error and IT downtime.See how OpenManage Enterprise helps you not only to complete critical management tasks, but complete them better.Hands-free discovery and deployment: Once a known services tag[6] is discovered on the network, OpenManage Enterprise can automatically deploy the system using a predefined template. The template setup is simple. You can clone it from an existing server/chassis or follow the simple menu driven template creation or editing guide. Why would you still deploy servers manually?Comprehensive updates: It is critical to ensure your infrastructure is up to date. OpenManage Enterprise streamlines the update processes for you.
