NDFS provides new food options

first_imgSay goodbye to Greenfields and Irish Ink and welcome Au Bon Pain Express, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Starbucks Coffee and a new catering service offered by Notre Dame Food Services this school year.Greenfields, the cafe formerly located in the Hesburgh Center for International Studies, ceased operations Aug. 22, associate director of Retail Food Service Operations Mark King said. An Au Bon Pain (ABP) Express will take over the location at the end of this month, following minor renovations. The location will offer many of the same pre-packaged sandwiches, salads and fresh pastries available in the Hesburgh library branch and the hours — 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays — will remain the same.“The Greenfields change was in response to continuing declining customer transactions and a change in patron dining patterns over a number of years,” director of Notre Dame Food Services, Chris Abayasinghe, said.Some students were excited about the expansion of ABP but voiced their disappointment at the loss of Greenfields.“Greenfields offered diversity in food to campus, and although I like ABP, Greenfields will be sorely missed,” junior Laura LeBrun said.“The best grilled cheese on campus is now gone,” junior Lisa Wuertz added.The space that served as Greenfields’ kitchen area for 23 years will be converted for ABP catering, which will make a new catering menu available for campus events. Box lunches for events will be replaced by ABP bag lunches, Abayasinghe said. This change is in conjunction with the University’s launching of the Center for Culinary Excellence (CCE), which is set to release new catering menus on Monday.“We serve over 8,000 events per year, and a majority of these events were coming out of our kitchen at North Dining Hall,” Abayasinghe said. “The Catering program outgrew the infrastructure at NDH, and we made the investment at CCE after careful thought and review.”Food service changes also are underway at two locations of the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore. Einstein Bros. Bagels will replace Irish Ink in the campus bookstore with an expected opening date of Nov. 10, Abayasinghe said. Renovation of the space is scheduled to begin Oct. 20. When completed, the branch will offer a full menu, and its hours will align with those of the bookstore. David Werda, director of retail operations, hopes the brand’s popularity will bring new life to the store.The bookstore location on Eddy Street now includes a Starbucks Coffee, which opened Aug. 18. The branch includes a new full-service cafe with Notre Dame-themed decor.“We are looking at a retail study to review all of our restaurants on campus,” Abayasinghe said. “Stay tuned.”Tags: Au Bon Pain, Einstein Bros., Greenfields, Notre Dame Food Services, Starbuckslast_img read more

Lauterbach: TRACE32 supports Helix Virtualization Platform via JTAG access

first_imgLauterbach announced the support of Wind River Helix Virtualization Platform with its TRACE32 JTAG debug tools. Helix Platform is Wind River’s new edge compute software foundation that runs multiple operating systems and consolidates mixed-criticality applications in a single platform, simplifying, securing, and future-proofing designs for the aerospace, automotive, defense, industrial, and medical markets. TRACE32 supports JTAG-debugging of such heterogeneous systems, giving access to all guests at the same time. The support is available for ARMv8 architectures, currently released for Renesas R-Car H3, R-Car M3 and Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+.As a Wind River partner, Lauterbach has committed itself to support the companys platforms as soon as they become generally available. To this end, working in close cooperation with Wind River, Lauterbach extended its product TRACE32 to include a comprehensive debug environment tailored to Helix Platform.Helix Platform delivers the VxWorks RTOS, Wind River Linux, and a type-1 hypervisor together as a foundation to allow applications to independently execute at different safety and security criticalities ensuring real-time, deterministic behaviors are not affected by other functionality on the platform. Helix Platform also provides the capability to run any operating system unmodified as a guest giving developers the ability to innovate in addition to re-using legacy software preserving software investment.Debugging a virtualized system such as Helix Platform with several OSes in different partitions with a hardware debugger is a complex undertaking. The debugger (and the developer) need to know which partition is active and how to access a currently inactive partition in order to be able to access variables or set breakpoints anywhere in the system.Lauterbach extended its TRACE32 debugger to be able to detect all virtual machines created in Helix Platform and their memory configuration. The debugger can access not only the virtualization layer but also all guest OS environments and the applications running in the guests, whether they are currently active in a core or not. TRACE32 has an advanced virtual addressing scheme allowing it to uniquely identify any address within any VM. Symbols of functions or variables are bound to this unique address enabling developers to access everything in the system at the same time simply by accessing the debug symbols.Helix Platform’s virtual machines each contain a guest OS, such as VxWorks or Linux. Using TRACE32, the developer can view multiple task lists and other OS objects in each VM, providing simultaneous visibility to all guests even if they are running multiple instances of the same guest operating system. These TRACE32 JTAG debug capabilities are ideal for safety- and security-certified critical systems that need to limit access to I/O ports, and to test actual production hardware platform, not test hardware, for certification credit.Using Lauterbach‘s TRACE32 together with Wind River‘s Helix Platform allows the developer to debug any code in the system at any time giving full access to all parts including the hypervisor and all guests. This feature is immediately available and is provided with the standard software delivery of TRACE32.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous 5G, Ai, and IoT edge processing drive thermal design prioritiesNext Lauterbach announces TRACE32 support of Jailhouse hypervisorlast_img read more

Australian Open: Roger Federer knocked out in last 16 by Stefanos Tsitsipas

first_imgRoger Federer’s bid for a hat-trick of Australian Open titles was crushed on Sunday as Greek wunderkind Stefanos Tsitsipas rose up to floor the Swiss master and become his nation’s first Grand Slam quarter-finalist.In a match pitting the oldest and youngest players left in the men’s draw, the 20-year-old Tsitsipas overhauled Federer 6-7(11) 7-6(3) 7-5 7-6(5) under the lights of Rod Laver Arena, sparking delirium among Greek fans out in force at Melbourne Park.The 37-year-old Federer, 20 times a Grand Slam champion, will rue his chances, having failed to convert any of the 12 break points he took from Tsitsipas over the course of a riveting clash laden with sparkling shot-making.Yes, you @StefTsitsipas!You’re into the #AusOpen quarterfinals pic.twitter.com/n9FJwedn0O#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 20, 2019He’s done it!@StefTsitsipas knocks out defending champion Roger Federer 6-7(11) 7-6(3) 7-5 7-6(5) to reach his first quarterfinal at a Grand Slam.#AusOpen #AOFiredUp pic.twitter.com/Vz8sQa0AT1#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 20, 2019Instead, it was Tsitsipas showing a wise head on young shoulders in a final tiebreak of unrelenting tension.When given a match point after Federer slapped a forehand long, he converted it clinically, forcing a backhand error from the Swiss to announce himself on one of the game’s biggest stages.He raised his arms in triumph and roared at the terraces, bringing tears of joy to his brother’s eyes in the players’ box.What an effort!Please don’t forget us @rogerfederer! #AusOpen pic.twitter.com/ttj97ebHDI#AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 20, 2019″There’s nothing I can describe, I cannot describe it, I am the happiest man on earth right now,” Tsitsipas said in his courtside interview.advertisement”Roger is a legend of our sport, he showed such good tennis over the years. I have been idolising him since I was six.”It’s very important to have an aggressive mindset, stay in the moment, press from the beginning. I didn’t lose my patience, stayed in those rallies. It was very important to save those breakpoints.”Tsitsipas will play 22nd-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut for a place in the semi-finals.last_img read more
