Vertical bands of fenestration on the new center’s street-facing exterior wall mimic those on the adjacent

Vertical bands of fenestration on the new center’s street-facing exterior wall mimic those on the adjacent Hoover Pavilion, an Art Deco hospital building from the last century. A terrace on the fourth floor with views of the Hoover Pavilion provides staff with a space for outdoor dining and gathering. Just off to the side of the palm tree–lined main entry to Stanford University’s stunning campus in Palo Alto, California, sits the compact Hoover Medical Campus. Its handful of buildings is well known to TEF Design. The San Francisco–based firm was first hired to renovate the nearly 100-year-old Hoover Pavilion. That Art Deco pile—the original Palo Alto hospital that now houses several primary-care clinics and the main branch of the Stanford Health Library—inspired many aspects of TEF’s design for the Stanford Neuroscience Health Center. From composition and scale to materials and organization, the new 95,000-square-foot center borrows telling aspects from its prominent neighbor. “We wanted the new building to fit in on the campus without overwhelming the Hoover Pavilion,” says Alyosha Verzhbinsky, TEF principal in charge, “but also to have its own identity.” Mimicking the terra-co...

Today’s Logistics Report: Merging Shipbuilders; Casting Logistics Recruiting Nets; Selling Freight Payment

https://www.wsj.com/articles/todays-logistics-report-merging-shipbuilders-casting-logistics-recruiting-nets-selling-freight-payment-11562158634 China is undertaking its most ambitious maritime project yet in combining two of its big shipbuilders into a single behemoth. The merger of China Shipbuilding Industry Corp. and China State Shipbuilding Corp. would create the world’s second-largest shipbuilder, the WSJ’s Trefor Moss reports, in the latest move by Beijing to supersize state-run businesses for global competition. The companies last year had combined orders by tonnage accounting for roughly 13% of the global total, but both are contending with broader forces in the shipping industry. Consolidation driven by tough industry economics is underway, including the pending merger of Korean shipbuilders Hyundai Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co. And China still lags behind other shipbuilders in shipping technology, which Beijing lists as one of the 10 high-tech sectors where it wants to upgrade industrial production. Logistics recruiters are casting virtual nets in their efforts to find workers in a tight job market. The companies are turning to dig...

Hospitals on alert to fix potential cybersecurity risk

Computer experts inside hospitals were working diligently on Wednesday to address a serious new security vulnerability in older versions of the Windows operating system, which is still used in many health care devices even though Microsoft hasn’t actively supported the older software in years. Julie Flaschenriem, chief information officer at Hennepin Healthcare, said the Minneapolis health system activated a command center Tuesday evening when news of the vulnerability broke. As of Wednesday, the team was working through its prioritized list of action items for securing any older devices that need attention. “We know — and the whole world knows — that there are people out there that are trying to exploit this one. And every organization around here, whether it’s health care or any other thing, is trying to prevent it,” said Flaschenriem, who has held information technology roles at several health systems in the Twin Cities. “We all have certain risks around this that we work to mitigate. … Because this has happened enough now, we have plans in place that we can put together and start working on it the minute something like this happens.” On Tuesday, Microsoft began urging users ...

Kidz Bop Is a Juggernaut of the CD Age. Can It Survive the Streaming Era?

The series of children’s cover records has scored 24 Top 10 albums since 2001. But kids’ listening habits have shifted, too. Several years ago, Vic Zaraya, the president of the music brand Kidz Bop, was having lunch with a senior music industry executive. At the time, Zaraya was also the president of Razor & Tie, the independent label that released Kidz Bop albums until 2018. If anything, Zaraya was underselling Kidz Bop’s standing. The series began in 2001 as a lark: an album of current pop hits sung by tweens with sanitized, safe-for-all-ages lyrics. Two lawyers with a passion for music, Cliff Chenfeld and Craig Balsam, had formed Razor & Tie in 1990, initially selling compilations like “Monster Ballads” and “Those Fabulous ’70s” via direct-to-consumer television commercials that were themselves kitschy delights. They applied the strategy to Kidz Bop, and the lark became a startlingly successful, still-running series of albums. Kidz Bop has scored big with versions of songs like Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’s “Uptown Funk,” Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” and Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone.” Since 2001, more than 20 million Kidz Bop albums have been sold, and during ...

Moment Air introduces anamorphic lens for DJI Mavic 2

Here’s something new for your drone: Have you heard of anamorphic lenses? Moment is introducing a new product line called Moment Air. It includes an anamorphic lens for your DJI Mavic 2, ND and CPL filters, and an ultra-thin photo case for your phone that fits in your DJI Remote Controller and allows you to mount an anamorphic lens as well. Anamorphic lenses create a wide, cinematic view with horizontal flare. Check out some of the videos below to see what I mean — it’s very cool. Moment is launching their new products on Kickstarter. The Moment Anamorphic lens for DJI Mavic 2 allows you to get “juicy horizontal flares, true black bars, and that buttery cinematic look,” Moment says in their press release. The anamorphic lens attaches to the front of either the DJI Mavic 2 Pro or Zoom and “squeezes” what the drone records by a factor of 1.33, which results in a 2.40-to-1 aspect ratio when you “de-squeeze” the footage later in post-production. If you’re into getting cinematic footage from your drone, anamorphic lenses are the way to go. Moment is also introducing CPL (circular polarizer/linear) and ND (neutral density) Airlight Drone Filters. They offer one of each for both the D...

Above: People fill plastic pots from a well in Chennai which is experiencing severe water crisis; a restaurant in the city remains shut due to water shortage/Photo: UNI As India grapples with a severe water shortage and a deficient monsoon, conserving this precious resource is the only way out. But for that, the centre and states have to be on the same page You only know the value of water when the well is dry, goes an old adage. And India is realising this the hard way. As the monsoon got delayed, a water crisis erupted in many parts, especially Chennai where long queues of people fought over this precious resource. Concerns about water availability for agriculture and domestic uses also increased as water tables got depleted all over India. Truly, the time for water wars had begun. It is a wake-up call for India. It has realised that it will be sentenced to hydrological poverty if urgent steps are not taken. In his first Mann Ki Baat address after being re-elected, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for a national effort to augment and protect India’s water resources. He said that India was tapping just eight percent of the rainfall it received and every drop of water needed...
