Disaster Management- Corporate America to the rescue -- article
Many businesses delivered the “right stuff” in the wake of September’s hurricanes, possibly earning themselves a long-term role in disaster recovery and preparedness. When back-to-back hurricanes ravaged the US Gulf Coast last month, welcome offers of assistance poured in from around the world. Federal relief services, which many argue fell down on the job, were pressed into service. But in the critical hours just after Katrina – the first catastrophic wallop of the region’s one-two punch from Mother Nature – struck, it was Corporate America that took the lead to meet victims’ and rescuers’ most immediate needs. Most disaster recovery observers, including many of its staunchest critics, say Wal-Mart, the mega-retailer that to so many is the perennial poster-child for bad corporate behavior, has set the bar for how to fashion a well-designed and executed disaster response at lightening speed.
Sun Chip Gets Eco-Friendly -- article
Sun Microsystems introduced on Monday its UltraSPARC T1 server processor, a high-performance, energy-efficient processor, formerly codenamed Niagara, which Sun said would only require about 70 watts of power, or less than many household lightbulbs. Sun is terming the new processor “the world’s first eco-responsible processor,” comparing it to the typical 150-watt power consumption of server central processing units (CPUs) such as the Intel Xeon and IBM Power. Sun claims the server could have the same effect on reducing carbon dioxide emissions as planting 1 million acres of trees.
