At Tekserve, Michael explained to me that the Mac Pro is designed around a workstation graphics model with dual GPUs, PCIe-based flash storage, 6 high-performance Thunderbolt 2 ports, new-generation Xeon processors, ultrafast memory, and it supports 4K video.
I had the opportunity to take a deeper look behind this small, powerful and yes very quiet computer and found out that the new-generation Intel Xeon E5 Processor is available with 4, 6, 8, or 12 cores of processing power.

Final designs for two of the last three Presidential $1 Coins became public Friday when the United States Mint unveiled images of them. Coins of former presidents have been issued at the rate of four per year since the dollar series kicked off in 2007. The agency said the design for the 2016 Ronald Reagan Presidential $1 Coin will be announced on Feb. Presidential portraits for Ford and Nixon dollars were selected from among 8 design candidates. Reverses of Presidential $1 Coins share Don Everhart’s depiction of the Statue of Liberty.
Does anyone know if the Mint will issue Carter and or Bush (41) coins next year if either passed away in 2016.
The Kennedy coin portrait with his head down in contemplative pose is on the official White House portrait that Jacqueline Kennedy approved & hangs in the White House just off the main lobby in the hallway to the right.
Good thing First Lady Nancy Reagan is still with us to direct her views on the Reagan $1 coin & her own $10 First Spouse gold coin design. Die Familie meiner Frau stammt aus Sachsen , aber sie war in den Vereinigten Staaten geboren. Ich habe fur drei jahre auf der kleine USA NSA base Bad Aibling Kaserne gewohnt und hat zur Munchen Amerikanische Hoch Schule gegangen.
I find it rather interesting that the Nixon dollar has his profile from the side, as in a mug shot. If you have ever been to a sporting event that requires you to sit on the metal or wooden bench for the duration of the game, you know there will be one thing bugging you the entire time.
Just like selecting the right shocks and tires where the vehicle meets the dirt, thought should be given when selecting the part that you contact in the vehicle. The Rally and Elite series are perfect for Jeep owners that are looking for a simple install. The Rally and Elite canvas series seats are for off-road, but also for Jeeps they have direct bolt-on options to the OEM brackets.
The Sportsman series offers the creature comforts of a factory seat, but the ability to run five-point harnesses.
The Sportsman seat still allows you to keep the creature comforts of a factory seat, but gives you the ability to run harnesses for added safety. When it comes time to look for a seat option that will keep you from bouncing around in the desert or rock climbing the Terrain series would be the seat for you. Guyot Bernardo Arocho Jr from BJ’s Technology News Blog recently paid us a visit to check out the new Mac Pro in person, interview our own Michael Truskowski, and review the new workstation from Apple. The Mac Pro is engineered with a single and larger fan that pulls air upward through the bottom intake. Next week we’ll present some photos of Ford and Nixon proof dollars and the dies used to make them. The candidates were review by several parties with recommendations made by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) and the United States Commission of Fine Arts (CFA). The dollars also have common edge inscription that include their year of issuance, the production facility’s mint mark, and E PLURIBUS UNUM. As someone with an interest in numismatic history and research I appreciate the background you’ve provided. Perhaps if he had his booking number held up under his portrait or even some vertical jail bars that would be even more fitting. Anytime we sit down it should be in comfort and Scat Enterprises has introduced a line of seats that will make driving in the dirt comfortable. Scat’s Procar line of seats that give owners a wide range of options for the interior of the vehicle. The ability to attach to the OE brackets makes sure there are no extra parts needed to install. They have TIG welded steel tubing, injection molded foam, adjustable headrests, and adjustable incline and recline.
This seat offers injection molded foam, adjustable incline and recline, TIG welded steel tubing, suspension straps for support and comfort, they accommodate five-point harnesses, and include the sliders.
This is the a seat that would benefit a weekend warrior that still needs to drive the vehicle to work on Monday. The Terrain series may be a fixed back seat, but still, offers the comfort of the other series’.


This is a fixed back seat that offers a TIG welded frame, injection molded foam, suspension straps, and will work with five-point harnesses. After countless hours of research on and about this breed, here is my version of how this wonderful breed came to be.In the early 1800a€™s Scotsman Bruce McKinsey moved his family moved from the cold damp climates of Northern Scotland to the Grampian Hills of Central Scotland.
As air passes vertically through the center of the device, it absorbs heat and carries it out the top of the device.
Or has the Mint just figured ending this series of coinage especially since it no longer produces any for the public? They also have two options in a black or gray canvas that are UV protected and are water resistant. For more information on the products be sure to check out Scat’s website or to see the latest happenings check out its Facebook page. After spending time together working the sheep in the fields and watching how McKinseya€™s dogs worked the livestock, Alexander eventually acquired a female Scottish Colley from Bruce and named her Flora.

There isna€™t any information as to the demise of Alexander, but he was well into his 80's at this time. This pup would come to be known as "Jet", a black pup with a faint line of white up his face, a white chest and socks.
Both theseA lines worked from the head and didn't have the a€?loose eyeda€? working style of the traditional Collies.If you look at the picture of the Basque Sheepherder, taken at the turn of the century, you can see the resemblance of our modern day McNab in the Black and white dog in the back on the right side. Among Scottish flocks he is the pride of Scottish owners, and is valued, both in the Old World and the New, as one of the best aids money can procure. Here even, in far California, there is one ranch, lying high on the breezy mountains and low in the grassy dells, that for years has relied upon the help given by imported collies and their offspring, and it is of the work these bright dogs do that this article is written.For the history of the collie one must look elsewhere than in a brief magazine sketch.
Many wise dogs have journeyed far by land and sea to race over the rugged hills after the nimble sheep, which in these mountain wilds give fleet defiance to the would-be-gatherer.
No one but a real Scotch shepherd can train these dogs to the perfection they attain among Scottish flocks under constant supervision. Descended from long generations of workers the puppies take actively to business, and practice amusing tactics of herding on the farm poultry while still too young to be initiated into the graver cares of life; and at first sight of a band of sheep will usually make some move that denotes the shepherd strain.
Literally is it true of the collie, Ye cannot serve two masters ; his allegiance must be given to but one, or the valuable animal becomes worthless for the work that nature and training have given him to do. The breeze is sweet with bloom, and the sunlight falls, a flood of golden glory, over the lavish green of April meadow, as we take the upward trail, a woodland path that rises steeply under the shadow of the Peak, giving but glimpses of the valley home below, and winding through still shadows in the absolute silence of Natures own domains. Higher we go, and onward, past an old stone cabin, a picturesque bit of ruin in the lap of spring.
As we come out from the woods with the Peak still above us, send a swift glance northward, where Sanhedrim and the northern mountains still are capped in glittering snow, rising sharply from green valleys to the sunny sky, their sparkling peaks the only hint of winter in all this summerland.
Off he dashes up the hill, makes a wide circle past a dozen ewes, and as they bolt up hill heads them, turns, and deftly drives them down.
Their lambs lie asleep in the warm sun or frolic together on the hillside, bright bits of movement white against the green.
A motion of the hand directs the alert dogs, and they join the two bands and send them steadily along the trail.
Two ewes and a lamb go running to the side.Here, Pete!The dog dashes quickly across a little hill, the bright drops sparkling on his black coat as he passes the sheep and turns them. Circling in front again, the dog overtakes, turns them, follows, and turns again, and patiently works them along till his troublesome charges are safely among their fellows.
If sent to hurry the little flock, he dashes at the hindmost, barking his orders.Here the master whistles Fred to the right. Nothing is visible to him, but off scurries the obedient dog, barking frantically, circles, and stops. Off he dashes, perhaps fifty feet or so ahead, and dropping to the ground with nose between his paws, he waits till the flock is close upon him ; then he springs up and trots ahead again, and once more quietly waits their coming.Fred! The master walks away, and Fred, understanding perfectly that he must keep the flock, swiftly circles round them and brings them to a halt.
Here, alone, he holds them, keeping them closely together while Peter and the master gather the other side of the hill, and return two hours later to find the sheep quietly grazing and Fred lying as quietly watching them.Two ewes wander a little too far. Scarcely rising to his feet, the dog slips quietly through the grass beside them, and they turn and slowly rejoin the band, cropping as they go.
Fred trots quietly around his charges, sees that all are safe, then drops down again, watching them ceaselessly with shining eyes, and not a ewe or lamb is missing when the returning master adds his flock.Steadily we climb, through the golden afternoon.
Occasionally shy deer peer through the brush, the warm air is sweet with the breath of bloom, and a distant eagle screams as he sweeps in stately circles over the Peak.
The flocks number in the hundreds as we finally reach the summit, where we are met by the shepherd and Tweed, with another band. In go the dogs, and send the sheep briskly down the trail, while Peter, circling far behind of his own accord, often brings in a stray ewe that has slyly dropped out.Yonder is a place where the whole band broke away years ago, and never have forgotten it, but neither have the dogs.


With a fierce challenge the collies vigorously meet the flying band, and force them back to the trail more roughly than we have seen them do yet, in punishment, perhaps, for their presumption and past sins. She has bolted away several times, and given Peter much trouble to bring her in ; but his Scotch is up, as she dashes away again.
He springs in before her, and with a dexterous hoist of his body sends her tumbling end over end, which is his own cure for these troublesome bolters, and was never known to fail. As if shot from a cannon, the ewe bangs against him, and over goes Tweed, howling rolling over and over, down the steep hillside, all four feet kicking at once, in angry protest as they come uppermost ; and his chap-fallen expression, as he struggles to his feet and slinks away, shows that Tweed is both a sadder and a wiser dog. Though all are trained alike in a general way, two collies differ as widely in characteristic methods of work as two men,each possessing a distinct individuality of his own.Ah! After much hard running the flock is finally under control, but a bunch of lambs has become separated in the confusion, and after circling helplessly, stampedes in wild disorder. Peter tries his wise best to work the foolish little things back, vainly attempting to head them off.but they jump over him, halfa-dozen in succession, ears and tails flapping wildly as they clear his broad back.
While the master separates the sheep, let us sit on this sunny hillside and watch the collies as they circle round the running lambs. They never bark at them as they would at old sheep, but merely follow and slowly check them by degrees.
The little things are both obstinate and foolish, and at first pay no attention to the quiet collies that trot patiently round and round, quietly gather them together, and at last stop their wilr1 run.
Slowly, and with marvelous patience they are turned, jumping over each other, then over the dogs, and it seems a hopeless task even to attempt to take them the half-mile to the corral, but in a couple of hours time Fred and Peter come slowly up to the gate with them, not a lamb hurt or missing, and their first acquaintance made with these gentle protectors and friends. Peter is a favorite, bright even beyond the ordinary collie, his first appearance in the field showing a canine reason. Then he suddenly spied a huge rock; straight for it he went, and springing into sight upon its top, he stood a moment, one paw uplifted, ears up and nose a-quiver, a pretty picture, gave two quick glances, and was down and with the sheep again, and quietly drove them straight across the field to the hidden gate. Often, till he learned the hills, did he leave the sheep,, and on some high point literally take his bearings, to return to his charge and take them down the better way, justifying his masters assertion that surely the line between reason and instinct is closely drawn in the Scotch collie. He was a ready match for a certain obstinate old ram, that always fought the dogs and delayed their work ; till at last when sent for the flock Peter went first for this old enemy, and there, nose to nose, both heads bobbing excitedly, he would angrily bark and growl, till the conquered ram at last would make a sudden bolt, and the victorious Peter calmly gather in the flock. A most conscientious dog, his work was done faithfully and well till years disabled him; but Fred, more alert to praise, did best were strangers present, when he abounded in bright ways and brilliant work, done with a comically conscious air of superior excellence. The young man pondered a little, then to the country saddler he went and ordered made from his description little leather shoes.
He took to them kindly, like the wise dog he was, wore them gratefully, and after a long days run through flying seed, off would come the shoes, leaving his feet sound and well.
Meekly he would let his shoes be donned, regarding his master quizzically the while, and wear them complacently enough in view, but let him be sent for sheep a little out of sight, a little delay would be noticed, then out from behind some bushy clump or sheltering rock Fred would gayly emerge, with many gambols to divert the eye.
Clyde closely resembles Fred, whose days are past; and till the present puppy, tiny Tweed, grows to working age, Clyde is the mainstay of the gathering. Help fulfills his name on other portions of the large range ; but either are true types of the working collie, willing and faithful helpers till years disable them. Either one is sent for sheep entirely out of sight in a large field, and patiently hunts till he finds them, then brings them in alone ; and Gyps mother, Bessie, brings in the entire flock from her owners small range just as readily as from the field. They brought with them their stock dogs, the Fox Shepard, the origin not known, but have survived in Scotland for centuries. McNab returned to the Grampian Hills in Scotland for the sole purpose of getting some of the dogs he was used to working. He brought Peter back with him, leaving Fred to have his training completed, and he was later sent to America. These two dogs were bred to select Shepard females of the Spanish origin, which were brought to this country by the Basque sheepherders, and that cross was called the McNab Shepherds because Mr.
He named this pup Jet he was black with a faint white line up his face, a white chest and a small amount of white on his feet. Some of these dogs will have a wider strip up the face (Bentley Stripe) and a ring around the neck, there are also instances of pups with brown on their face and legs but will still be mostly black.
Alexander McNab and his family raised sheep in Scotland, but longed for a warmer climate and enticed by the news of the West, set out across the Atlantic to America.
McNab was not satisfied with the type of working dogs he found locally, and in 1885 he returned to Scotland for the sole purpose of importing the type of dog(s) he had been accustomed to working with.
It was said that these two male dogs were bred to female dogs of Spanish origin, which were brought to this country by the Basque sheep herders. I have searched (and continue to search) to find out the type of dog the Basque may have brought with them to California, and my findings were contradicting.
A Basque researcher informed me that most Basques did not come to this country with native dogs, but used working dogs that were available to them in their area.
