On October 12th, I'll be attending Evolve 2022 in NYC. Truly the data event to end all data events, the intimate one-day event is hosted by industry luminaries Cloudera, IBM and Intel. While I should disclose that I will be one of the featured speakers at the event, believe me when I say that I would be there regardless. The event will be a who's who of data leaders and enthusiasts focused on digital, analytics, innovation and digital transformation, spanning industries including but not limited to financial services, insurance, retail, communications and manufacturing. Come to Evolve 2022 for curated sessions, thought-provoking keynotes, peer-to-peer discussions and plenty of personal networking. Leave with new knowledge, professional connections and, hopefully, inspiration to implement a transformative data strategy at your own business. I recently hosted Hannah Smalltree, Senior Director at Cloudera, on my Insider Podcast. I learned more about the upcoming event, the world of data today and how her company fits into it. She brought a wealth of knowledge to our conversation from her long history of working in the data world as a tech reporter and editor. I'd like to share some of that here today.
While not super well-known outside of the data world, Cloudera is one of the world's top enterprise data platform companies. In my estimation, it is the only game in town for end-to-end data management across hybrid, multi-cloud and on-prem. Beyond simply gathering and storing data, Cloudera's platform seeks to quickly and easily analyze data. Moreover, it tracks and secures this data across all an organization's environments.
Smalltree first noticed data science's potential as a competitive differentiator while working as a tech reporter. In my capacity as a tech analyst, I've also seen how the companies with the most comprehensive data strategies seem to be pulling ahead of the pack. Unlocking the power of data analytics is a crucial tenant of a successful digital transformation. Yet, as Smalltree noted, it's not always the most accessible Topic to talk about in print.
This brings us to what the hosts are trying to do with Evolve: put together a live, in-person event expressly for the data people: the Chief Data Officers, heads of analytics, aspiring Chief Data Officers, lead data scientists, senior VPs and others in data leadership roles. Evolve 2022 seeks to bring all these data visionaries together to discuss making the data-driven enterprise a reality—how to get things done, how to design flexible architectures, how to leverage AI, how to drive data culture, how to harness real-time data and how to find and retain data talent. In Smalltree's words, it's "a little bit less about demos and code and more about how people leverage technology and mobilize lots of resources to deliver outcomes."
I cover countless conferences and events every year, so believe me when I say that Evolve 2022 looks like it will be a one-of-kind, can't-miss experience for anyone in the world of data science. It's not the only conference with data at the center—the old Strata Data Conference comes to mind—but it will be smaller and more intimate than any other event related to data and analytics I'm aware of. Forget about the giant Expo halls and the inscrutable technical sessions. According to Smalltree, this smaller format will allow attendees to connect and talk more in-depth about design concepts, best practices and leadership skills around data and analytics. The event will still offer many illuminating speaker sessions—Josh Wardle, the software engineer who created the massively popular Wordle word puzzle, for one. However, Smalltree says Evolve is just as much about having a conversation with the person sitting next to you about what is going on with data in their organization.
My favorite events are always the smaller ones, where you get to rub shoulders with company leaders and share stories and experiences with fellow industry folk. It's something I have missed a lot over the last several years as the pandemic forced most events to go virtual. The fact is, you learn and connect in a different way face-to-face. While we're lucky to have the tools to attend events virtually when it is too difficult to make the trip in person, there's nothing like the real thing. If you're a data fanatic like me and only attend one event in person this year, you'd be wise to make it Evolve 2022. I'll see you there. You can sign up here.

More and more people are gearing up in epic equipment these days, either through Zandalari heroics or normal and heroic-level raiding. This leads to a lot of purple items of wide range of different ilevels, particularly toward the end of an expansion set. While this is great for those of us who are catching up to current content (or gearing up an alt), couldn't there be more of an incentive for hardcore raiders?
Back in vanilla, it was really something to see someone decked out in the highest level of gear. The color category of a player's items alone was enough to determine their in-game accomplishment. I absolutely think it's a good thing that a larger group of people get to see content and gear up quickly, but shouldn't there be a new level of reward for those who work the hardest on progression?
Well, as longtime WoW players may remember, there already is. There has always been a level of gear above epics that has never been implemented in game: artifacts. Originally planned as a step above legendary items, red-quality artifact items could perhaps instead replace heroic raiding-quality epic items as a status symbol for those at the cutting edge of content.
At a point in time when blue gear is considered temporary and purple is again becoming the norm, could it be time to implement a rarer category of reward? Do you think it would be beneficial to World of Warcraft for the best possible items to be of a different grade? Would this be enough to bring hardcore players back to the game? Or would it greatly devalue traditional epics?

Two incumbents on the Santa Clara Valley Water District Board of Directors, Gary Kremen and Tony Estremera, face challengers this November.
Kremen, whose district 7 includes Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno and southern parts of San Jose, is going head-to-head with Rebecca Eisenberg, a Palo Alto attorney.
Valley Water is confronting multiple challenges as it tries to develop a workable strategy to keep water flowing, protect streams and control flooding now and into the county's future. The district is facing a historic drought, a federally mandated infrastructure rebuild that has sidelined Anderson Reservoir – the county's largest – and an astronomical cost increase for its planned desalination plant in Palo Alto.
While the district does not provide water to Palo Alto, which is a customer of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, it funds water-related infrastructure projects in and affecting the city. The district's annual budget is $917 million.
Kremen, a businessman, engineer and founder of the dating website Match.com, first won a seat on the board in 2014. As chairman of the district board, he worked with the San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority (SFCJPA) to complete the first phase of the San Francisquito Creek flood control project in East Palo Alto in 2016.
He also supported the indefinite extension of the water district tax, Measure S, in 2020, which brings in $45.5 million annually for the Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection program. The program uses the funds for flood control, seismic upgrades and wildlife protection. Voters approved the tax measure by 75.06%.
He has supported and advocated for alternative drinking-water sources, such as purified water, to expand the county's water supply.
Kremen has also gotten into some hot water. He also voted to put Measure A on the 2022 primary ballot, a measure to extend the limit on board members' terms from three to four; the misleading ballot description drew criticism for stating the measure would "limit" the number of terms, not increase the existing number allowed.
He pulled out of the election for county tax assessor this year and temporarily removed himself from the board's chairmanship after allegations of sexual harassment. A campaign staffer accused him of sharing photos of himself and his partner nude from the waist up in bed. Kremen said on Wednesday the photo was a breastfeeding photo.
Kremen has said in news reports that the photos were part of a large Dropbox dump used to store campaign-related photos. He has said he hadn't checked to see if any were of an intimate nature. Other staffers have also accused him of bullying. He requested an independent ethics investigation to clear himself, and a preliminary summary is expected in early October.
Eisenberg has cited her long career working on business and financial teams and her work for community good as some of her qualifications for the board. She took PayPal public in 2002, merged Flip Video with Cisco in 2008, and spun Reddit off its former parent company in 2012. On the nonprofit side, Eisenberg helped launch charitable organizations including the Craigslist Foundation and Kiva.org, an international microfinance lending nonprofit.
She describes herself as a team player, "forward thinker" and a problem solver.
Growing up near the shores of Lake Michigan, Eisenberg said she has been a passionate water advocate and environmentalist her entire life. In 1983, while in high school, she conducted experimental studies on the eutrophication of Lake Michigan that became a part of the University of Wisconsin's growing body of research, she said.
The following summer, she spent three weeks in Israel working on a kibbutz at what was then the world's leading manufacturer of agricultural drip irrigation products, which gave her hands-on experience with water technologies in desert conditions.
At Stanford University, she completed the newly launched human biology curriculum, which taught pre-med biology within the context of sociological and ecological consequences of human actions, she said.
The Weekly asked both candidates for their views on four courses related to their qualifications, drought mitigation, future water planning and paying for the desalination plant in Palo Alto. Here, edited for length, are their responses:
Q: Why do you think you are the best person for the job?
EISENBERG: I have a 30-year record of successful accomplishments in Silicon Valley, working on diverse teams to achieve mutually beneficial goals. My work has changed lives by creating economic opportunity, well-paid jobs, greater equity, sustainability and fairness to employees, residents, businesspeople, and communities. Additionally, I am known for my integrity, honesty, transparency and work ethic. I am a team player, forward-thinker and problem solver who approaches challenges with a perspective of positive long-term consequences and community benefit.
KREMEN: With 12 years of water leadership and being both an engineer and a business person, I have a demonstrated track record of standing up for Palo Alto residents on water issues. An accomplishment includes jumpstarting the downstream repair of the flood prone San Francisquito Creek after a 19-year delay. Another accomplishment includes stopping the destruction of Palo Alto creeks by increasing creek cleanup while rehousing the homeless who live in these environmentally sensitive areas. Yet other accomplishments include fighting southern California/Big Agriculture water grabs, increased funding for conservation and water recycling including a $16 million direct grant for Palo Alto's wastewater treatment plant for salt removals so the water can be used for Palo Alto's redwood trees.
Q: We are in a serious drought. What is your vision for keeping the water flowing now, and into the future?
EISENBERG: The current drought is unlikely to end any time soon. Meanwhile, our existing natural water resources are quickly depleting. In California, as elsewhere, we are depleting water from rivers, aquifers, reservoirs and the ground at rates that are exponentially faster than what can be replenished. We are running out of water, and most efforts to increase short-term water supplies come with great risk to our environment and communities.
To preserve water availability for future generations, we must materially Boost the way we use our existing resources. For example, currently, other communities and countries recycle the majority of their wastewater. Israel, for example, successfully recycles almost 95% of its wastewater. The technology exists to follow in their footsteps, and Valley Water has the budget to make these infrastructure improvements. But we must get to work now.
Water recycling, recapture and re-use is the most proven step forward in our drought conditions. We recognize that diverting and conveying water from elsewhere leads vulnerable and wealthy communities being deprived of water resources they rely on to survive. Tunnels, dams and other means of diversion cost billions of taxpayer dollars, potentially greatly increasing water bills while at the same time offering minimal benefit. They also irreparably harm fragile ecosystems, increasing our drought conditions by contributing to climate change. Better management of existing resources is a proven path forward.
KREMEN: The first part of my vision is to continue to expand funding for water conservation for Palo Alto residences, businesses and nonprofits. The second is being sure we have emergency water supply, which I led our board in obtaining ahead of the drought and ahead of other water districts. The third is to implement net-zero water conservation codes for new construction.
Q: What is your position on developing alternative water sources? What does that look like?
EISENBERG: I strongly favor immediate material investment into transitioning current infrastructure to modern infrastructure that will enable recycling and reuse of the majority of our wastewater.
I also believe that we need to urgently invest in infrastructure that will better enable the recapture of lost water runoff. Regrowth and regeneration of canopy and native plants also are essential elements of that process, as is, of course, vastly improved protection of existing native plants and trees.
Also, desalination has potential promise, but desalination must be done without creating harmful impacts on our natural environment and ecosystems.
KREMEN: I strongly support developing alternative water sources such as water recycling, desalination and conservation. I have voted for funding all of the above-mentioned projects (conservation and water-recycling funding; the wastewater treatment plant for salt removal, etc.) while keeping water rates reasonable. In addition, I negotiated a unique arrangement, which is in no other city in Santa Clara County, for a backup water supply for Palo Alto.
Q: The cost of building a desalination plant in Palo Alto recently rose from $20 million to an estimated $53 million. The district was to pay $16 million and Palo Alto and Mountain View would share the balance of that sum – 25% and 75% respectively. Should the district take on more of the cost? What would you envision to get the project built?
EISENBERG: I believe that the Water District needs to pay for this plant entirely and also pay for all other water treatment facilities and infrastructure. We are in urgent need of upgraded infrastructure to enable water recycling, recapture and reuse. We are running out of water, and water is not something we can make. Our best path forward is to take advantage of existing technologies that have been proven to enable better use of existing resources.
The district needs to pay in full for these projects for a number of reasons. First, infrastructure always by definition benefits the community at large far more than it benefits any specific individual or town. Second, it wastes valuable time and resources to put cities and communities in situations where they are forced to negotiate with each other for financial resources and benefits.
The district has more than ample budget to cover these expenses. Putting in context of the $2.9 billion Pacheco Dam project that my opponent and his allies on the Water District Board continue to champion, the cost of this water treatment is de minimis. Valley Water's budget has been described as $1 billion on the low end, and $10 billion dollars on the high end by sitting board directors. Add those sums to the billions of dollars of federal and state funding that was newly created by the recent Inflation Reduction Act and last year's Infrastructure Act, and it is highly likely that large grants are within reach, especially when earmarked for sustainable green infrastructure projects. Green infrastructure and green jobs are at the center of both our president's and our governor's official water policies, and we are not just able to obtain funding for these improvements, but we are instructed to do this work.
I favor a Green New Deal approach, which creates new local jobs, upgrading infrastructure to enable water recycling, recapture and reuse, and also preserving existing ecosystems and regenerating new growth where ecosystems and trees have been destroyed.
KREMEN: In the past, getting additional funds for the Palo Alto desalination plant has been challenging as the majority of the board is San Jose-focused and north county gets neglected. The good news: I think I have convinced a majority of current board members to support additional funds for Palo Alto. I am working very hard to raise even more additional money for the desalination/salt removal/pollution reduction project, including lobbying the federal and state government for additional funds.

Magic Leap 2 is now commercially available for purchase in the U.S. and select other countries for $3,299. The augmented reality headset is aimed at immersive apps for the enterprise.
Magic Leap 2 is designed for business utility, comfort and sustained use, and is 20% lighter and 50% smaller in volume than Magic Leap 1, which debuted in 2018 for $2,295.
Magic Leap 2 integrates new improvements to address the past barriers that have prevented the widespread adoption of AR technology, including the largest field of view compared to similar, currently available AR devices, and dynamic dimming, which enables more effective use in brightly lit settings (such as outdoors) with greater image solidity.
At the recent Nvidia’s GTC22, Lowe’s showed how it is using Magic Leap 2 headsets to show its staff in its warehouses how to recognize various items in the stacks and other uses. It also fits with Nvidia’s Omniverse tech, which is being used to build digital twins of enterprise facilities.
GamesBeat Summit Next 2022
Lowe’s retail associates are able to view digital content in the store to help reconfigure layouts, provide restocking support, and enable real-time collaboration. Using the technology, the associate can access more detailed information right in front of them, while saving time by not having to climb ladders or track down physical labels.
“You’re not imagining it – talk of an Augmented Reality (AR) future is everywhere these days,” said Magic Leap CEO Peggy Johnson, in a blog post. “For those of us who live and breathe this industry, it’s no surprise. We’ve done a lot of work to get to what we know is a transformational moment in the way humans interact with technology.”
It also includes an open platform that gives enterprises and developers flexibility, cloud autonomy and data privacy.
Magic Leap 2 is available in three editions – Base, Developer Pro, and Enterprise – starting at $3,299. Magic Leap 2 Developer Pro will start at $4,099, while Enterprise will be $4,999.
While it’s expensive, Magic Leap isn’t pushing the product as a consumer device anymore, as it did with its first generation. It is now emphasizing the enterprise and the tech.
Johnson said there are more than 3,000 product and platform innovations in the device, and it has a lot of learning for what works and what doesn’t.
“We understand better than anyone the remaining hurdles that hold back widespread AR adoption, and we’ve worked tirelessly to solve those challenges,” Johnson said. “While it’s energizing to see AR leap into headlines and the surging conversation around courses like the metaverse, it’s time for the utility of the technology to be demonstrated, not just discussed. That’s where my focus has been since joining Magic Leap just over two years ago.”
Despite everything we hear about the metaverse and consumer applications, there is real progress being made in the enterprise, Johnson said.
“In the last several years, we’ve seen AR begin providing utility across industries like healthcare, manufacturing and the public sector, and we’re seeing that interest increase as the technology continues to advance, user experience improves, and more applications are developed,” she said.
It’s for this reason that Johnson focused the company’s efforts on the enterprise, including tailoring the next generation device, Magic Leap 2, specifically for enterprise customers.
Johnson said that PBC Linear, a manufacturing company based in the midwest, turned to AR technology to implement new workforce training, realizing a more than 80% reduction in training time for new hires and a 20% reduction in scrap and rework in the production process.
“Already, we are seeing how Magic Leap 2 is improving hybrid work environments, simplifying new hire training, and revolutionizing the way healthcare professionals learn and better serve their patients. Magic Leap 2 is having a real impact and delivering meaningful value for enterprises,” Johnson said.
While touting the progress, Johnson acknowledged the tech is a work in progress on the road to the metaverse.
“In the many conversations that I’ve had with business leaders, I have heard firsthand how AR is being heralded as the next technological disruption, but the immense promise and list of benefits it has to offer still feels just out of reach,” she said.
Magic Leap 2 is now available to all customers in the United States, Canada, UK, EU (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland), and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Availability in Japan and Singapore is expected before the end of the year.
Widespread availability of the Magic Leap 2 comes after a successful early access Program with companies like Cisco, SentiAR, NeuroSync, Heru, Taqtile, PTC and Brainlab. During this period, Magic Leap continued to refine and Boost the device for training, communication, remote assistance use cases in clinical settings, industrial environments, defense, and retail stores.

Africa is home to 12% of the world’s people, but it accounts for less than 1% of the global air service market.
Part of the reason for Africa’s under-served status, according to a just-published World Bank study, Open Skies for Africa – Implementing the Yamoussoukro Decision, is that many African countries restrict their air services markets to protect the share held by state-owned air carriers.
This practice originated in the early 1960s when many newly-independent African states created national airlines, in part, to assert their status as nations. Now, however, most have recognized that the strict regulatory protection that sustains such carriers, has detrimental effects of air safety records, while also inflating air fares and dampening air traffic growth.
Indeed, African ministers responsible for civil aviation themselves acknowledged this in 1999, when they adopted the Yamoussoukro Decision, named for the Ivorian city in which it was agreed. It commits its 44 signatory countries to deregulate air services, and promote regional air markets open to transnational competition.
It followed up on the Yamoussoukro Declaration of 1988, in which many of the same countries agreed to principles of air services liberalization. In 2000, the Decision was endorsed by head of states and governments at the Organization of African Unity, and became fully binding in 2002.
But implementation has fallen short, says Charles Schlumberger, Lead Air Transport Specialist at the World Bank, and author of Open Skies for Africa.
“A historic opportunity is being missed,” Schlumberger said. “Ten countries have not signed on to or completed proper ratification of this decision, and many others that are signatories have not implemented it. Meantime, most countries in Africa that have abandoned their ailing carriers and opened up to foreign operators now have air services, both passenger and freight, that are more efficient, safer, and with more competitive prices.”
Drawing on statistics gathered by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and other organizations, Schlumberger’s study reports that over the past decade, Africa’s aircraft hull-loss accident rate is more than six times higher than those of Asia and Latin America, and more than 12 times higher than those of Europe and North America.
The study says that prospects for reducing this accident rate would Boost if African states applied bilateral sanctions against airlines that fail to meet safety standards established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). In fact, Schlumberger said, this is what African air regulators agreed to do when they signed the Yamoussoukro Decision in 1999.
In addition to improvements in quality and pricing of air services, he said, countries that have abandoned national airlines are in a position to redirect state resources thus saved to investments that have more positive impact on economic development. In addition, lower transport costs achieved through enhanced competition reduces a significant trade barrier for African countries, while also improving prospects for increased tourism.
For example, the study notes that 20 percent of Africa’s tourism-related jobs are supported by visitors arriving by air, compared with only four percent in North America. On the basis of studies showing increased air passenger traffic following air services liberalization on other continents, as well similar findings for Africa sub-regions that have liberalized, Schlumberger concludes that liberalization could deliver similar gains for African countries that have yet to implement the Yamoussoukro Decision.
Specifically, the Yamoussoukro Decision calls for, among others:
Experience with liberalized air services elsewhere has also shown that they result in increased trade, both regional and intercontinental. Competitive air carriers with more frequent flights and lower fares can open the door to trade in perishables and high-tech manufactures, the study suggests.
“Reliable, safe and competitively priced air services are essential to better integrating Africa with the global economy,” said Jamal Saghir, World Bank Director for Sustainable Development in Africa. "African air transport leaders recognized this with the Yamoussoukro Decision and now this study underlines the need for action on those commitments.”
Open Skies for Africa’s recommendation that African states to implement the Yamoussoukro Decision applies to all its signatories, but especially mentions those that have not signed or properly ratified it, namely Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Gabon, Madagascar, Mauritania, Morocco, Somalia, South Africa, and Swaziland.
BENGALURU: Karnataka’s BJP government on Saturday decided to increase reservation for SCs and STs by 2% and 4% respectively, with CM Basavaraj Bommai declaring the hike will be implemented “at any cost”.
A government order will be issued in two to three days, law and parliamentary affairs minister JC Madhuswamy said after a special cabinet meeting where the move was cleared ahead of assembly polls next year. The hike will benefit 103 SC and 56 ST groups. “After we discussed all options, we decided to hike the quota,” he said.
The 6% increase will take the state’s total quotas beyond the Supreme Court’s 50% cap to 56%, but the government vowed to have the latest measure included in the Constitution’s Ninth Schedule to protect it from legal scrutiny.
Madhuswamy said the Centre would be persuaded to amend the Constitution. “We’ll take all legal measures to ensure it (the hike) is implemented at any cost,” CM Bommai said.
Seeking to allay doubts over whether the higher quota will stand legal scrutiny, Bommai said the state had strong grounds to defend it in court. In the Indira Sawhney case, the SC had said the 50% ceiling can be breached if the quota is inadequate or not proportionate to the population of any community far removed from the mainstream of society, the CM argued.
