John Mayer Is Attending Phish’s Halloween Show Tonight In Las Vegas

first_imgPhish is wrapping up their four-night run at the MGM Grand Garden Arena tonight in Las Vegas. The highly anticipated Halloween show will include three sets, a bevy of surprises, and at least one unexpected member of the audience. John Mayer posted an Instagram saying that he will be attending Phish tonight and Kanye West tomorrow. Of course, it’s not completely random – with guitarists Trey Anastasio and Mayer sharing similar roles in the Grateful Dead world.But he did make this graphic, depicting the words of “You Enjoy Myself” in the same style as Kanye’s tour t-shirt for Saint Pablo. The creative combination is telling of the pop-gone-jam star’s 2016 interests, and only further thickens the plot for what’s in store this evening. Over the years, Phish has performed albums such as The Beatles‘ White Album, Talking Heads‘ Remain in Light, as well as 2014’s performance of Disney’s Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House. What do you think Phish will do tonight for their annual Halloween stunt?last_img read more

The Role Our Global Supply Chain Plays in Dell’s 2030 Vision

first_imgAlmost one year ago, Dell Technologies introduced the 2030 Progress Made Real goals – reflecting our core purpose as a company to drive human progress and create a positive and lasting impact on humankind and the planet.Progress Made Real has four core goals: advancing sustainability, cultivating inclusion, transforming lives with technology, and upholding ethics and privacy. It was a different world a year ago, but changing times do not change our focus. In fact, today’s challenges have only reinforced the enormous difference we can make by simply doing the right thing.The supply chain plays a critical role in Dell Technologies’ vision for progress. We embed sustainability and ethical practices in everything we do. Whether it’s protecting our planet, supporting the well-being of our team members, partners and suppliers, or providing a safe working environment where people can thrive, social and environmental responsibility is a paramount focus for our supply chain. Dell Technologies’ 2019 Supply Chain Sustainability Progress Report highlights this commitment.We are committed to creating a supply chain that values transparency, collaborative leadership, innovation, and empowerment. What are some of the ways we accomplish those goals? By implementing ethical recruitment practices; by utilizing audits and regular training to enhance the health, safety and knowledge of labor rights of our team; and by performing onsite consultations with both factory management and workers at supplier locations to highlight and resolve issues.These efforts are paying off on environmental issues, too. We are reducing our supply chain’s impact on the planet, including by limiting greenhouse gas emissions and partnering with our suppliers to save freshwater. In 2019, over 275,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions were reduced through energy consumption reduction projects at our supplier factories. And our supply chain saved nearly 30 million meters of freshwater and reduced wastewater discharge by 26.2 million meters.The guiding principles of our supply chain have been especially important as we address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. From the onset of COVID-19, we partnered with the Global Facilities and Environmental, Health and Safety teams to develop preventative safety protocols across all Dell Technologies sites. We are also partnering with suppliers to do the same for their facilities. These safety protocols were implemented early to protect our on-site heroes working tirelessly to keep technology flowing for the world in need.The bottom line: Our supply chain plays a vital role in making Dell Technologies’ 2030 Progress Made Real vision a reality.last_img read more
