leave a comment »

KILKENNY, Ireland, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Join Michael Flatley, Martin Sheen and Saoirse Ronan in answering Ireland’s call to use your connections this St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish ambassadors appear in an inspirational video on calling on some 70 million people worldwide who claim Irish ancestry to use their connections to help create new jobs in Ireland.

To view the Multimedia News Release, please click:

Irish-American Lord of Dance Michael Flatley, whose parents emigrated from Ireland in 1947 to Chicago, has lent his support to ConnectIreland to deliver a new Irish Government programme called Succeed in Ireland to help promote Ireland as a destination for international business.

Michael Flatley tells viewers “We need to get Ireland back to work. We need to create new jobs, lots of jobs and every single one of us has a part to play to make that happen.”

ConnectIreland is looking for connections to small to medium sized companies that are expanding internationally. Using these connections, ConnectIreland wants to speak with decision makers to explain why companies should establish Ireland. The initiative will provide a reward to people around the world who provide introductions to ConnectIreland which result in internationally expanding companies investing and creating sustainable jobs in Ireland.

A connector who successfully introduces a company to Ireland that creates new jobs will be paid a minimum of EUR 1,500 per job, up to a maximum of 100 jobs, payable over two years.

Ireland is a proven business destination and is already home to a large number of multinational companies such as Google, Intel, Abbott, Pfizer and Microsoft who have significant operations here.

The ConnectIreland initiative is being launched at a time when confidence in Ireland is building as a result of former US President Bill Clinton’s address at The Invest in Ireland Forum in February 2012 in New York City where he told delegates, “It is nuts not to take advantage of this unique moment of opportunity with the best environment for investment and the best workforce in the world, now is the time to invest in Ireland.”

A recent report by The Economist Intelligence Unit provides further evidence that Ireland is a prime location for Foreign Direct Investment listing EU market access, competitive corporate tax, talented workforce and a stable regulatory framework that supports business as key benefits of Ireland.

MACAU and HONG KONG, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — For the distinguished few, a truly sophisticated nightlife experience has finally arrived. Spokespersons for CHINA ROUGE – the forbidden chamber for Southern China elite, a venue that meets the long-unmet expectations of those with discerning tastes for the finer things in life – announced that the exclusive, highly anticipated members-only performance lounge will celebrate its opening launch party at the leading destination resort hotels in Macau – Galaxy Macau(TM) on 30 March 2012.

The event will feature an intimate performance by a mystery diva, christening the CHINA ROUGE’s fabulous showroom and setting the stage for many more memorable shows to come.

Much more than a mere fusion of East and West, CHINA ROUGE is another realm where the golden Shanghai nights of yesteryear are brought to glamorous life once again, with contemporary elements like modern amenities, art, performance and technology.

Mr. Francis Lui, Vice Chairman of Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG, SEHK stock code: 00027) and the man behind the vision for Galaxy Macau, is known for introducing unique, luxurious experiences to the market. CHINA ROUGE was conceptualized and styled by Alan Chan, one of Asia’s most celebrated designers and brand consultants. This plush, sensual retreat draws inspiration from the risque Parisian cabarets of the 1880s, decadent Shanghai of the 1930s and the iconic Art Deco movement for a sexy, sophisticated venue of intriguing contrasts and lush decor.

The interior features an extensive collection of specially commissioned artworks by some of China’s most celebrated artists of today, including Buhua, Chen Men, Deng Xinli, Li Jian and Zheng Lu. CHINA ROUGE also houses a number of custom-made artifacts, several of which were designed by Alan Chan himself. In combination, these works capture impressions of beauty and sensuality – much of which is rooted in Chinese literature – and add a thrilling dimension to the interior.

“Galaxy Macau is once again breaking new ground with CHINA ROUGE,” said Francis Lui, Vice Chairman of Galaxy Entertainment Group. “There’s nothing else to compare it to in Southern China. We call CHINA ROUGE our forbidden chamber, in part for its exotic ambience, and in part because only the select few will be able to explore its offerings. It combines elements of the Chinese, European and modern in a way that has never been done before. The music and entertainment will also be first-rate, as our guests for the opening launch party will experience firsthand. We have no doubt that CHINA ROUGE will quickly establish itself as one of the finest nightlife experiences in the world.”

Once they pass through the sumptuous reception lobby, members can relax and mingle in the spacious, romantic bar and lounge area with semi-private sofa seating. Further inside is the show room, complete with a luxury VIP mezzanine floor that lies at the heart of the club. Live entertainment includes leading artists from China, Asia and around the world, spanning multiple genres and catering to the tastes of an ultra-exclusive clientele. Asian performances are flavored with Western elements, and nostalgic homage to the past are updated with modern twists, building excitement and energy levels as evening gives way to night.

The food and beverage at CHINA ROUGE is equally decadent. Members can enjoy top-quality Champagnes and wines, innovative signature drinks concocted with a nod to the classics, expertly mixed cocktails and premium spirits. Drinks are accompanied by delectable, Shanghai- and internationally inspired dishes covering the spectrum from modern cuisine to comfort food… all made from the finest ingredients.

At CHINA ROUGE, business and pleasure sit cozily together, expansive motifs frame intimate conversation, and captivating shows entertain but don’t overwhelm. All seemingly contrasting elements co-exist in perfect harmony here. It will instantly become the venue of choice for luxury events and exclusive parties.

As CHINA ROUGE is a private members club, information for how to gain entry to Macau’s forbidden chamber is available by contacting the China Rouge management at

Nothing has been overlooked in creating this magical, luxurious escape like no other, for those who want nothing but the very best. It goes beyond culture, beyond time. Words can never describe its magic. It’s simply beyond black and white. A new entertainment era begins now with CHINA ROUGE.

Supermicro(R) New Generation Xeon E5-based Computing Solutions Achieve Breakthrough 95%+ Efficiency with Digital Switching Power Supply Technology

leave a comment »

Advanced Power Modules Deliver Highest Levels of Efficiency and Power Factor Correction Gains Across a Wide Load Range

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, extends its innovative leadership in high-efficiency power supply technology by unveiling a series of new Digital switching power supplies that provide additional 5-10% efficiency gains at light loads and the highest levels of efficiency across a wider load range in comparison to today’s mainstream analog switching power supplies. Supermicro’s new Platinum-Level (95%+) high-efficiency power supplies utilize high-speed digital power controllers with adaptive switching in place of conventional analog circuitry to generate PWM control signals. In analog power supplies, efficiency is optimized for a single load value based on a system’s typical operation. As the load shifts away from the peak, efficiency drops. With this new digital control, compensation and output parameters can be dynamically configured to match different load conditions resulting in increased efficiency across a wider range of operation. Supermicro’s Digital switching power supplies also provide faster transient response to input AC line voltage fluctuations resulting in a <5% Input Current THD for an increased stability margin.


"At Supermicro we focus on increasing efficiency alongside performance in all areas of our product lines," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "Our transition to Digital switching technology ahead of the industry provides our customers the highest efficiency (95%+) and 5-10% power factor correction gains across the widest possible load range. As a result, our customers will benefit from immediate energy savings as well as reliability and cost-effective access to the latest, most sophisticated power supply technologies on the market."

Supermicro's PWS-1K43F-1R, PWS-1K28P-SQ, PWS-605P-1H and PWS-341P-1H are the first in a series of new Digital switching power supplies, delivering output from 340 to 1400 Watts. These supplies feature Platinum Level (95%+) efficiency, Remote Monitoring with PMbus 1.2, node management support, SMBAlert and are Energy Star Server 2.0 ready. These Digital switching power supplies are optimized for select Supermicro 1U to 4U SuperServers and are ideal for Data Center, Enterprise, Cloud Computing, HPC and many other resource intensive computing applications.
