In an effort to increase awareness about marine conservation and amplify messaging to students, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, and the New York Marine Rescue Center, is excited to announce its support of the New York Marine Rescue Center and its conservation efforts surrounding cold stunned sea turtles.  In connection with those efforts, the New York Marine Rescue Center released 'The Adventures of Peachy Keen,' a culmination of stories and illustrations about the 16 North Country Road Middle School Science Club students rescue and release of their Kemp's ridley sea turtle. Their book was printed on a Canon imagePRESS C10000 Digital Press.

The New York Marine Rescue Center is a rescue and rehabilitation organization that promotes marine conservation. Its mission is to preserve and protect the marine environment through conservation efforts including rescue, rehabilitation, education and research. They are the primary responders for sick or injured seals, sea turtles, dolphins, porpoises and small toothed whales, and maintain the only marine mammal and sea turtle rehabilitation center in New York State.

"I'd like to thank the NY Marine Rescue Center for supporting the publication of our Science Club students' book and for Canon USA's support in printing the publication and both the New York Marine Rescue Center and Canon for its sponsorship of the program providing our students with such an enriching and rewarding learning experience," said Dr. Marianne Cartisano, superintendent of the Miller Place Union Free School District in Miller Place, NY.

"The partnership that we have with Canon has been instrumental to our organization for the past number of years," said Danielle Perillo, director of administration and development, New York Marine Rescue Center. "Canon is generously supporting two satellite tags for our sea turtles, which provides the data necessary for us to be able to track these sea turtles and study their movements for conservation research."

As part of the New York Marine Rescue Center pilot program, New York Marine Rescue Center staff provided lectures on cold stunned sea turtles, marine mammals that inhabit New York waters and gave a virtual behind-the-scenes tour to the students. The students learned firsthand what to do if they find a stranded sea turtle and the importance of removing debris from our beaches to ensure the safety of the marine life.

"Environmental conservation is one of the central tenets of Canon's corporate philosophy of building a strong unified future. We are proud of these exceptional students for their efforts to raise awareness of the need to protect marine life through this incredible book," said Christine Sedlacek, senior director and general manager, Corporate Communications Divisions, Canon U.S.A. "Though Canon is a global brand, Long Island is our home. We are honored to support the NY Marine Rescue Center and its educational program involving the Miller Place School District as it builds the next generation of innovators and environmental champions."

Canon U.S.A. is excited to continue this program in 2022 with the Half Hollow Hills School in Dix Hills, NY.

Luleå University of Technology Transforms Delivery of Education with Citrix®

citrix | August 17, 2022

Just like work, education today can happen anywhere. And students want the freedom and flexibility to choose where and how they learn best. Luleå University of Technology (LTU) understands this, and is using solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS) to tear down the walls of the traditional classroom and deliver a modern experience that empowers its student to learn from anywhere and perform at their best. “Teaching has become space independent. “We are a university of technology and we are expected to be at the forefront in using IT to provide a superior educational experience in the classroom, the dorm room and anywhere in between.” Daniel Ström CIO, LTU When the pandemic hit, LTU did just this, leveraging Citrix DaaS to create cloud-based workplaces through which teachers and students could access everything they needed to stay connected and continue learning. LTU’s students use 300 different applications, some of which require significant computing power traditionally provided by powerful workstations available in on-campus computer labs. And for students to continue learning remote - often using low-powered, personal laptops and other devices - LTU needed to provide access to these applications. It was a tall order. But LTU was able to fill it using Citrix DaaS to provide students with secure access to their desktops and applications from anywhere and Microsoft Azure to allocate the processing power and computing resources required to support them. “With Citrix, it was very easy for us to step up and make this available for all the students through their own computers,” said Lennart Isaksson, Head of Student Computer Lab Administration, LTU. And it was able to do it quickly, enabling full remote availability for 19,000 students in a matter of days. “When it comes to remote desktop use cases, nothing comes close to Citrix,” Ström said. Simplified Management One of the biggest advantages of Citrix, according to Isaksson, is the time saved in application management. “With the traditional PC model, it would take several hours to install all the necessary applications on each PC. And we have over 800 student computer lab PCs,” he said. “With Citrix, it’s much better. We have a single, base image with all the applications and we just replicate it to all the virtual machines that we are spinning up.” Enhanced Security Another key benefit of Citrix DaaS is the enhanced security it provides. “It’s a much safer approach than the traditional PC model,” Isaksson said. “All the apps are up to date and always available from any endpoint device.” Modern Education And of importance to Ström, Citrix makes it easy for LTU to keep pace with technology as it evolves and deliver the IT performance and experience that its students expect. “Young people today are raising the bar,” he said. “When you build a new computer lab under the traditional model, you get only 12 to 24 months when it is modern. After that, the students get less and less satisfied. With the Citrix model, we can add new machines in the background as the technology evolves, so the computer labs are always new and fresh.” LTU joins hundreds of educational institutions around the world who are using Citrix to transform learning.
