The National Academy Presents The Paradox of Sculpture now through May 3, 2014

NEW YORK, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rarely-seen early works by iconic American masters Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, John Chamberlain, Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein, and Jeff Koons are on view at The National Academy, now thru May 3rd.  The Paradox of Sculpture juxtaposes pivotal early works by the art world's biggest names, alongside debuts by exciting new voices honing their talents at the Academy.  Highlights from the renowned figures include Emballages de Revues, an early wrapped magazine by Christo from 1962, the deflated balloons of Warhol's Inflatable Silver Cloud Pillow from 1966, and Rauschenberg's unfolding cardboard boxes French Fried/Captiva Tile from 1971.  More recent show stoppers include Jeff Koons' Inflatable Flower Sculpture from 2000.  Debuts of note are Tess O'Dwyer's aerial triptych in bronze Incest: Remnants of Violence, Jos Stumpe's Keep Me Balanced, a work of concrete and steel, and Mary Mattingly's whimsical Head over Heels in painted aluminum. The juxtaposition of the ultra-famous and the yet-to-be-known creates the show's dynamism.  The show, curated by Filippo Fossati and Maurizio Pellegrin, is free and open to the public.

The National Academy, founded in 1825, celebrates the genius of American culture from the Romantic Age to the Digital Age. It is the only organization that integrates a museum, art academy and association of American artists and architects.  Winslow Homer, George Inness, Arshile Gorky, and Willem de Kooning are among the giants who studied at the Academy.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Existing Big Data solutions are mainly focused on the discovery and analysis of data.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
