“Hard Week” in Praia a Mare for everyone included the sensory disabled!
Blindsight Project is promoting "VACANZA GAIA:R.D.A." by offering the first week of vacation in a beautiful sea by paying a really cheap price!
Starting from July 17th you may enjoy this amazing place for two weeks.
There are among all available sports: paragliding, rafting, trekking, skin-diver
canoeing, equestrianism, cycle racing (tandem included), sailing, and more depending on partakers.
A qualified assistant will be available for everybody especially for visual aids, besides a trainer.
There will be a shuttle with chaperons too.
The hotel that welcomes “Hard Week” is located in the heart of Praia a Mare.
It is a place within easy distance, open to everyone without any distinction.
It has been chosen for its position near the sea, besides its courtesy and standards of hygiene.
“Hard week” is unique of its kind, because represents a good example of open tourism in which all sensory and mental barriers will be crossed thanks to nature, sport and amusement.
Several sightseeing trips will be organised in the nearby cities distinguished by its artistical and archeological importance.

Eurotech presents Aurora Au-5600, the new release of its ultra-efficient HPC system family. Aurora is one of the leading supercomputing platforms in terms of power saving and scalability; with support for the new Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series CPU, Aurora delivers unprecedented levels of performance with the advantage of a certified Intel® Cluster Ready software environment.
Hamburg (Germany), May 31, 2010 Aurora is the smart HPC architecture for the most demanding needs: thanks to its highly integrated, minimalistic and streamlined design it allows exceptional Flops per Watt ratio, outstanding TCO savings and one of the best Flops per square meter density.
"Aurora marks a new approach to HPC", said Giampietro Tecchiolli, Eurotech Group VP and CTO, "An approach that fits the quest for sustainable performance. Clearly, performance has always been a priority, but TCO, scalability and reliability are crucial. We have created Aurora to deliver much more than top-class performance: with Aurora we offer an HPC system that is sustainable at any size".
With Aurora Au-5600, Eurotech updates its groundbreaking architecture with the latest 6-core Intel® CPU, the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series .By using the new processor, Aurora Au-5600 allows packing an unprecedented number of cores: one single Aurora rack contains up to 3.072 cores and delivers up to 41TFlops.
This massive computational capacity is compatible with the existing X86 software applications and development tools; in fact, Aurora Au-5600 is one of the first Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series based systems that is Intel® Cluster Ready certified.
"Aurora brings an exceptional value to the HPC customers", said Dr. Herbert Cornelius, Intel Director Advanced Computing Center EMEA, "by utilizing the Intel® Cluster Ready architecture it allows that creating, installing and managing even the most sophisticated software setup is greatly simplified and delivering increased productivity and interoperability of HPC cluster solutions".
Aurora features a number of high end technologies, such as 100Gb/s bandwidth per node, with a 60Gb/s 3D torus and a 40Gb/s Infiniband interface; multilevel synchronization networks for highly efficient scalability, and an on board, programmable accelerator can be used to implement highly optimized algorithms
With its exclusive liquid cooling system, Aurora has one of the best Power Usage Efficiency values and is one of the most reliable HPC platforms: by using liquid cooling it's possible to control the temperature of each component with a precision and efficiency that air cooling simply cannot match; moreover, the total absence of fans and moving parts completely eliminates one of the most significant sources of downtime.
