Fink: “I mean we do know that childhood obesity is the predominant public health threat facing our generation right now, 2 out of 3 adults in Alaska are obese and for kids about 1 out of every 3 Alaskan children are overweight or obese.” Juniors registered the highest overweight/obesity rates at 41.4%. 1st graders were the most likely to fall within the healthy range (29.2% overweight/obese). Karol Fink is the Manager for the Alaska Obesity Prevention and Control Program. The District says they use the data to continue refining fruit and vegetable nutrition and physical exercise programs.

Configuring Intel vPro with Linux in Admin Control Mode

first_imgIf you have been following along, this will be the third in a series of posts regarding Intel vPro configuration with Linux. Our first post was about Intel Setup and Configuration Service 7.2 (a special version designed for Linux users). Following that, we wrote in our second post about configuring vPro with Linux in User Control Mode. Now, this post will explain how to configure in Admin Control Mode, i.e. no user consent required, that is the desired mode for most of embedded usage modes such as ATMs, Kiosks and Digital Signage.     Now, I’ll describe how to configure a Linux machine using Intel SCS 7.2 in admin control mode – This means the administrator doesn’t need user consent to access the remote control operations. (Tux, the Linux Penguin, is copyrighted by Larry Ewing and Simon Budig ( also by Anja Gerwinski). Used with permission.)Creating Profile     In order to configure Intel® vPro™ it is required that we supply the system with information about how all of the tools should behave, such as: WebUI, IDE-R, KVM, security authentication and authorizations, network connectivity, etc. The way we accomplish it with Linux is the same as with Windows machines: you should use Intel SCS 7.1 console to create profile and export it to .xml file as demonstrated in my previous post. However, there is a direct way to make a basic configuration only using ACUConfig and command line parameters as I have demonstrated in this video, where I also decided to make this configuration using static IP.

IOC board member apologizes for linking Russian ban to Nazis

first_imgInternational Olympic Committee (IOC) board member Gian Franco Kasper apologized on Thursday for comparing a ban on Russia from the 2018 Olympics to persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany.”It was an inappropriate and insensitive comment,” Kasper, the long-time International Ski Federation president, said in a statement.The 73-year-old Swiss official had been speaking on the sidelines of an IOC board meeting in 2018 host city Pyeongchang. Kasper compared a potential Olympic ban for Russia – as punishment for state-backed doping and cheating at the 2014 Sochi Games – with indiscriminate persecution by the Nazis.”I apologize unreservedly for any offence I have caused. I am truly sorry,” Kasper said in the statement released by the IOC.The IOC has set up two commissions to verify evidence – detailed in investigations appointed by the World Anti-Doping Agency – of Russia’s doping program before deciding on the country’s Olympic participation.Last July, the IOC board declined to impose a blanket ban on Russian teams and athletes competing at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Instead, the decision was left with the sports federations in a chaotic two weeks of legal debate and hearings before the games.Kasper was not a board member at the time. He has since been promoted to represent winter sports on the IOC’s policy-making committee.The two IOC commissions, investigating claims of a Russian doping conspiracy and prosecuting disciplinary cases against individual athletes, are expected to work for several more months.last_img read more
