first_imgGCShutter/iStockBy JAMES HILL and AARON KATERSKY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — An attorney for the co-executors of Jeffrey Epstein’s estate confirmed reports that a sale has closed on the late sex offender’s New York City townhouse on East 71st Street.The sale closed earlier this week for a price of approximately $51 million, according to Daniel Weiner, a lawyer for the co-executors. This is down from the original asking price of $88 million.The identity of the purchaser was not disclosed.Epstein moved into the massive home, known as the Herbert N. Straus House after its initial owner, in the mid-1990s.This is the first of Epstein’s multiple high-end homes to be sold since his death in August 2019.Epstein’s Palm Beach Island mansion has been under contract for several months while the co-executors dealt with some fraudulent claims to title on the property.Those issues have been resolved by the courts, the lawyer for the co-executors said, and they “hope to move forward” with that sale.

Keller Williams and Andy Frasco Team Up For A Funkin’ Good Time At The Mish

first_imgFor the second night in a row, Keller Williams sold out the little heavenly nook of a venue up in Bellvue, CO known as The Mishawaka Amphitheatre, which is currently celebrating its 100th anniversary. With the Friday night festivities acting as a bluegrass hoedown w/ guests such as SCI’s Keith Moseley, as well as Jeff Austin, Saturday night was dedicated strictly to the funk, as Williams brought along More Than A Little and support from Andy Frasco & The U.N.What can’t be said about Frasco and his band of maniacs? These guys literally have more energy than a nuclear reactor. There is no formal setlist, everything is performed off the cuff, and most of the set you will find Frasco behind the piano, standing on the piano, jumping around on stage, or inviting everybody in attendance to join along in the clear and present good times that are being had by he and his bandmates.A particularly rowdy version of Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s “Proud Mary” (though this was clearly Tina Turner‘s rendition) had booties shaking, while a cover of Rage Against The Machine‘s “Killing In The Name” had everybody screaming “Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me” to end the set. If you’re not familiar with Andy Frasco & The U.N., do yourself a favor and not only give them a listen, but more importantly go see this band live, especially if you need a jolt of energy in your life.Keller came out all dressed up in a black suit and ready to bring some sleek, funky grooves to The Mish with his more than capable backing band More Than A Little. His set featured some favorites such as “Freeker By The Speaker”, Rick James‘ “Mary Jane”, and the Jerry Garcia Band tune “My Sisters & Brothers (Promised Land)”, the latter of which featured Frasco on the keys and singing along with backup singers Tonya Lazenby Jackson and Sugah Davis. The Grateful Dead‘s “Feel Like A Stranger” kept the Deadheads in the crowd more than pleased, along with a spectacular version of the Talking Heads‘ “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” that was truly apropos given the majestic location of the event.Another great night at The Mish, as the concert season winds down for the 100th season with upcoming shows from Jackie Greene, Beats Antique, and MarchFourth! among others (check out upcoming dates here).

The Research-Backed Reason Why the Best IT Shops Crush the Competition with Data

first_imgAccording to new survey results from ESG, just 1 in 5 respondents are very confident in their IT organization’s ability to properly support data goals over the next three years. However, there is reason for hope. If you are a modernized IT shop, it’s highly (94%) likely that your business does have confidence that you can deliver infrastructure to support these data-driven goals over the next three years. The key lies in that word, modernized.What does it mean to be modernized? New survey results from ESG show modernized IT is nearly 3x as likely as aging IT to report their analytics server infrastructure is less than two years old. The importance of refreshed, up-to-date servers in your mission to organize and crunch data can’t be overstated. Per ESG, “A modernized IT allows organizations to swiftly respond to the needs of the business, act upon opportunities in real time, maintain a competitive advantage, and ultimately improve the bottom line.”Moor Insights & Strategy agrees, finding that without the right infrastructure, businesses will not be able to reap the full benefits of data analytics. Servers that aren’t data optimized come at a price, and that price is reflected in higher total cost of ownership (TCO) for IT and lost business opportunities for your company. Infrastructure with enabling technologies like Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory is key to making sure your data applications run smoothly. As Moor Insights points out, “Data analysis can only transform as fast as the underlying hardware enables it.”[1] Their paper demonstrates it is no coincidence that businesses that have modernized infrastructure are best prepared to capitalize on the bounty of benefits that refined data can deliver.What do these potential business opportunities look like? In short, why should you care? Here’s a look at what you are missing out on if your servers aren’t modernized and tuned for data management and analytics success.[2]Companies with modernized IT:are nearly 7x more likely to report their analytics environments are very effective at driving business value than aging IT companies.are 6x more likely than aging IT orgs to report analytics are increasing customer spend.report that analytics are reducing the cost of business operations at nearly triple the rate of those with aging IT.are 5x more likely than aging IT companies to report that analytics are helping uncover new market opportunities.report analytics are shortening time to market nearly 3x more often than those with aging IT. Conclusion? Data management and analytics, done right, enable businesses to capture value-driving insights that help the business win in the marketplace. In order to run top-notch analytics, you need modern servers with the latest technology to enable your pursuits.To dive deeper into this topic and learn how raw data is refined into actionable insights for your business, read our blog Is Data the New Crude Oil.To learn more about how Dell EMC servers can assist you with data management and analytics workloads, visit our server page and follow us @DellEMCServers.[1] Moor Insights & Strategy, Leveraging Server Architectures to Win in the Datacentric Era, July 2019.[2] ESG, Measuring the Value of Data and Analytics Inside Modernized IT Departments, August 2019.last_img read more
