Virtual reality is having a GIGANTIC impact on our world right now. If you are in the tech industry like I am, scarcely a day passes when we do not hear the words “virtual reality.”The history of virtual reality is long dating back to as early as 1838. But the advent of virtual reality is usually attributed to 1987 when Jaron Lanier coined the term. His company, VPL, was the first to sell VR goggles, called the “Eyephone 1” and “Eyephone HRX.” You read that right. Eyephone.Thirty years later and VR is no longer confined to Mr. Lanier’s lab. It is everywhere!Whole businesses are being built around VR. 30 Ninjas, a digital entertainment company that creates 360 degree VR content, deployed Dell Precision Workstations 7910 to shoot four jobs live on the Conan O’Brien show – running three major creative workflows through the machine without any breakdowns or crashes.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gNPzMmICd0In its early years, VR focused mainly on video games and entertainment but its usefulness now extends to the military, medical procedures, aviation and business.As with any new technology, small businesses are often late adopters due to high cost and uncertainty involved with a new innovation. What we’re seeing now is the VR industry eclipse that peak of being a “new innovation” and entering into a more mature phase of its life.Small businesses are now adopting virtual reality faster than ever, often driven to do so by the very characteristic that kept them from being an early adopter of VR: minimal capital.VR as a money-saver, you say? Surely that cannot be. But it is. Here are five ways small businesses are adopting virtual reality:Architecture and DesignThe application of modeling is a signature in the worlds of design and architecture. Architects and designers can now allow their clients to walk through proposed designs even before the first bricks are placed.Small design shops, whether for buildings, fashion and more, will give their clients the opportunity to “try before they buy” in a way that’s never been possible.This will make a particularly large difference for small operations that don’t have the resources to draw or build models, or preliminary designs for a wide array of customers. They might spend months on a model or plan for a pitch and ultimately not win the business. Virtual reality will be a cost reducer for these types of industries.PrototypingPrototyping has always been a costly procedure as one part production is far more expensive than serial production. Specifically, this has consistently been a drawback for small business owners with limited amount of capital for prototype production. Virtual reality will allow small- and large-sized prototypes to be developed in order to be checked before serial production starts – providing a major advantage to small business owners who are willing to incorporate VR for business applications.Low cost trainingMilitary training has already begun using virtual reality head gears. Small business owners will also be able to use VR for business purposes. It will be a two pronged usage where the owner can use the VR equipment in order to train his/her own staff rather than spending money on props and training aids. The second methodology is training people, such as in driving and cleaning training, which will reduce the cost as fuel and cleaning material will no longer be required.ShoppingOnline shopping has been around for a good 20 years now. The experience will be elevated to virtual aisles where the shopper can select items online. This will enable small online business owners to create virtual storefronts for the client to visit and enjoy shopping.DatingDating websites have traditionally used pictures and chats to allow people to interact. VR will revolutionize the business as users will be able to now have intriguing experiences in different environments to get to know each other.Another Dell for Small Business customer, 3D Live, is using VR to raise awareness about saving our planet!Partnering with the Lonely Whale Foundation, 3DL Live leveraged Dell Precision and Alienware technology to create, “Cry Out: The Lonely Whale Experience,” an underwater VR expedition to allow viewers to witness the impact of pollution on today’s waters. Using AMD-powered Alienware Area 51 desktops and Dell Precision 7910 workstations, 3D Live was able to build an experience unlike any other – enabling users to swim with whales and truly gain an understanding of the crisis.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhXOFKP8S8UAre you convinced yet that you should consider VR for your small business? During Small Business month, we celebrate small businesses and the innovations they are putting forward to quite literally change the entire world.One thing is clear: “Virtual Reality”, an idea once confined to an unknown Jetsons-esque future, is now a reality and it is here to stay, to make the world a better place, and to enable small and large businesses to operate like never before. May is Small Business Month. Dell is celebrating Small Business month with a 4-part small business series discussing hot trends in small business. Stay tuned for next week’s piece.
Governor Wolf Statement on Acts and Threats Against Jewish Institutions in Pennsylvania SHARE Email Facebook Twitter February 27, 2017 Hate Crime, National Issues, Statement Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement in reaction to a series of threats and direct acts against Jewish institutions in Pennsylvania that follow a national trend of increased anti-Semitism:“Any anti-Semitic act or act of intimidation aimed at Jewish institutions and people in Pennsylvania is truly reprehensible and we must find those responsible and hold them accountable. This is not who we are as Americans or Pennsylvanians. We will not take these threats and acts lightly and I have asked the Pennsylvania State Police and Office of Homeland Security to offer their full resources towards protecting these institutions and finding those responsible.”Frances and I stopped by the @HolocaustMuseum in DC today on our last day of #NGA2017.

The Reds exceeded expectations in finishing second to Manchester City and even though their surprise bid for a first title in 24 years ended disappointingly, the main priority of securing Champions League football was achieved. However, Rodgers knows qualifying for Europe’s elite club competition for the first time since 2009 is merely the first step, and he has to ensure they not only cement a regular place in the top four but continue to challenge for the title. “I think every title run-in will always have the pressures that come with it and we have shown we can cope with it, winning 12 out of 14 games which is a monumental effort,” he told LFCTV GO. “We picked up 37 points from 42, a remarkable number of points. “We took it as a compliment as staff and players that we were being talked about as title winners. “We had obviously excited people by our football. That showed the significant progress we were making.” While Lallana is the player Rodgers has made his number one priority there are a number of other targets Liverpool have expressed an interest in, including Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can and Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno. However, contrary to reports, Press Association Sport understands Barcelona forward Pedro is not being considered as a potential signing. While agreeing a fee for Lallana may take some time, there are other complications associated with their interest in Can as former club Bayern Munich had a buy-back clause inserted into the deal which took the midfielder to Leverkusen last summer which they can utilise in 2015. “We know there is interest but have nothing official,” Leverkusen’s sporting director Rudi Voller told Bild of Liverpool’s monitoring of the player. “It is clear that Emre now has a clause in the contract – a decision is still pending. “The business would be lucrative but that is not the sticking point. “We are of the opinion that Emre would still do well another year with us. “Roger Schmidt (Leverkusen’s coach) has already spoken with him, he is really into the player, and I am convinced that Can would be even better with Roger. “Of course I spoke with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (Bayern Munich chairman) on the subject. “They think that for Emre’s development another season with Leverkusen would be just right.” The agent of Fabio Borini, who had an impressive season on loan at Sunderland, does not expect the striker to leave Anfield this summer despite interest from the Black Cats and abroad. “I know for certain there is interest not just from them (Sunderland) but there have been approaches from several countries, including Italy,” Marco De Marchi told Calciomercato.it. “I have not spoken to Brendan Rodgers yet but the player is tied to Liverpool for another two years and at the moment I don’t see that he could leave. “Anyone who wants Borini will have to talk to Liverpool but I know he would like to continue his Premier League adventure because it’s a style of football that suits him perfectly.” News that 31-goal striker Luis Suarez underwent arthroscopic surgery on a tear in the meniscus of his left knee on Thursday, sustained in training with Uruguay ahead of the World Cup, was not a great cause for concern at the club as the player is expected to return to fitness within three weeks. But Rodgers does know his squad needs significant strengthening ahead of the new season and moves have already been made to address that with an early approach for Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana, with discussions continuing as the two clubs try to thrash out an acceptable fee. “There is certainly no complacency,” said Rodgers of their unexpected second-place finish. “You can’t take your eye off the ball and this is an ever-evolving league which gets better every season. “We need to draw on the positives of this season, of which there are many, and we need to add players who can improve us as that is key. “You have to retain your hunger so you bring in players with that profile as well as the tactical and technical intelligence. “We had a three-hour recruitment meeting (last week) and as much as we have had a good season we want to go one better next year.” Rodgers believes the players who went through the experience of a title challenge will be stronger mentally next season. Press Association Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists there will be no complacency from the side next season as he expects his summer signings to help by providing some much-needed competition.
