A team of researchers claim to have discovered that men are more naturally predisposed to violence than women.The study, published by a team including Oxford University researchers, argues that ‘men are biologically programmed to be warriors because of their deep ancestral history of inter-tribal war and conflict.’By contrast the researchers suggest that females have evolved a ‘tend and befriend’ response to protect their offspring.Their findings may help to explain the origins of aggressive behaviour in modern-day tribal groups, both large and small, from nations at war to street gangs and even football hooligans.Professor Mark van Vugt, Research Fellow at Oxford’s Institute for Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology, noted the continued significance of these evolutionary traits in modern society. He commented, ‘A solution to conflict, which is an all too common problem in societies today, remains elusive,’ adding, ‘One reason for this might be the difficulty we have in changing our mindset, which has evolved over thousands of years.’The study’s findings are based on examination of the ‘Male Warrior Hypothesis’ in contemporary evolutionary anthropology. The hypothesis suggests that men are more likely than women to discriminate against others considered outsiders. This trend is apparent across different time periods and cultures.van Vugt added, ‘The human mind is shaped in a way that tends to perpetuate conflict with ‘outsiders.’ Our research finds that conflict between rival groups of men has presented opportunities to gain access to mates, territory and increased status. We believe this has resulted through natural selection in an evolved psychology amongst men to initiate and display acts of intergroup aggression.’However Emily Cousens, Sarah Pine and Ali Johnson, representatives of the Wadham Feminists, placed emphasis on social convention as the cause of tribal male aggression. They told Cherwell, ‘Society creates and constructs what we think of as masculine and feminine and encourages and rewards different traits amongst males and females. This does not necessarily have a biological basis.’An English fresher from St. Peter’s College gave a typically agressive male response, ‘I only eat raw flesh from creatures I have killed with my bare hands. I sustain myself upon the blood of the weak. I drink cement. I once impregnated a wild gorilla with pure evil. I bleed whisky. I simply walk into Mordor.’

The NHS Injury Costs Recovery (ICR) scheme aims to recover the cost of NHS treatment where personal injury compensation is paid, for example, after a road traffic accident. The Department of Health and Social Care publishes monthly updates on the amount of money recovered under the ICR scheme.The Compensation Recovery Unit recovers funds primarily from insurance companies and then pays them to the NHS hospital or ambulance trust that provided the treatment.
Former Roberts Bakery boss David Roberts has been recognised with a Lifetime Honorary Award from the British Society of Baking (BSB).A third-generation baker, Roberts has dedicated over 50 years of his life to the business since joining in the mid-fifties following the death of his father Frank. During his time there, he held the roles of production director, managing director and latterly chairman – from which he retired in 2006.Throughout his leadership, investment was made into the bakery’s capacity seeing an increase to 90,000 loaves a week by 1962.Since then, the numbers have continued to grow and the bakery now serves major supermarkets across the UK from plants in Cheshire and Derbyshire. It employs 900 people and is run by the fourth generation of the Roberts family.“I’m very happy to have received the Lifetime Honorary Award from the British Society of Baking,” said David Roberts.“The bakery industry is quite literally in the family’s blood and it’s most rewarding to look back on where we have come and to where we are now heading with the future of the brand. There are many exciting time ahead that I’m looking forward to being part of as a family member.”He joined the BSB in 1971, working on various committees over the next two decades, and took up the role of chairman from 1981 to 1982.“David continues to support us and conferences to this day and embodies everything that is good about being a member of the BSB,” said Richard Hazeldine, chairman of the British Society of Baking.British Baker subscribers can read more about the history of Roberts Bakery here.

Disaster recovery is one of the most important aspects an organization needs to handle, not only for business continuity, but also for regulatory reasons. Not every business can or wants to handle the additional cost of a physical site for disaster recovery. The cloud seems to be the optimal solution for that.Dell EMC’s Data Domain Cloud Disaster Recovery is a solution that allows users to extend their on-premises data protection to the cloud, and orchestrate the disaster recovery of a protected machine on the cloud. The solution has been available since early 2017 and many customers are already using it for their disaster recovery. Cloud Disaster Recovery is also included in the Integrated Data Protection Appliance (IDPA), which means that customers who are working with IDPA have by default, the ability to leverage the Cloud DR abilities.The Cloud DR process starts by copying data created on the on-premises by Avamar. Data is stored on Data Domain systems, including our integrated appliances (IDPA DP4400), or snap-based replication data created by RecoverPoint for VMs to an S3 bucket on your AWS account. This process is called protection and data is sent compressed over HTTPS/TLS 1.2, where it is stored securely and deleted by the cloud retention policy, which is configurable through the protection or replication solution (Avamar or RecoverPoint for VMs).After the data of a backup or a replication is available on the S3 bucket, the next backups can be incremental, meaning only new changes made to the machine will be sent to the cloud, so cloud storage usage and the billing are significantly reduced. When a machine needs to be recovered from the backup stored on the cloud, users have the ability to select a backup copy using the Cloud DR Server modern HTML 5 user interface and can recover in just a few button clicks.Leveraging VMware Cloud™ on AWS as a DR SiteIt’s been over a year since VMware™ Cloud on AWS was announced and it has gained popularity among organizations who seek the familiar VMware products and technology, without the hardware costs and complexity of building the entire infrastructure. It allows businesses to take advantage of the scalability the cloud can offer.The Cloud DR’s vision is to provide customers the opportunity and flexibility to work with different protection technologies and cloud platforms. Starting with the 18.2 release, which was available beginning in May 2018, Data Domain Cloud Disaster Recovery provides the ability to recover from an existing backup on the cloud directly to VMware Cloud™ on AWS.Cloud DR allows you to recover to VMware™ Cloud easily and intuitively. After configuring your software defined data center (SDDC) on VMware Cloud, you’ll be able to deploy a Cloud DR Add-on (CDRA) on the vCenter running on your SDDC. The SDDC doesn’t have to run all the time. You can configure it to run just for disaster recovery and continue with the CDRA deployment and configuration. This includes connecting the CDRA to your AWS account, and the vCenter on the SDDC. This process takes just a few minutes.During the configuration, make sure to enable the CDRA for direct failovers. Once this option is enabled from the CDRA, you’ll be able to use the Cloud DR Server (CDRS) to recover from a backup copy directly to the vCenter on the SDDC. Simply select a protected VM, any of its available cloud copies, and the target vCenter and CDRA (multiple CDRAs could be deployed on the same vCenter). After the recovery is initiated, the CDRA will create a new VM on the vCenter running on your SDDC on VMware Cloud, and that VM will retrieve the data that is stored on the S3 bucket.It wouldn’t take long to fully recover a VM to VMware Cloud, and the process is usually much quicker than a recovery to AWS because there is no data conversion process and because the internal connectivity between the SDDC and the resources on AWS. In internal lab qualifications, it took several minutes to recover a 150 GB Linux VM to VMware Cloud.You’ll can find several demos on Dell EMC’s YouTube channel, including the following:Recovery demo to AWS and to VMware CloudDeployment demoAdditional resources:Cloud Confidence eBook: Why Dell EMC Data Protection for VMware Cloud™ on AWSVideo: Overview of Dell EMC Cloud Disaster RecoveryVideo: Extend Disaster Recovery to VMware CloudLearn more: dellemc.com/[email protected] will also be discussing this in more detail at Dell Tech World in several different sessions including:Everything You Need to Know About Modern Data Protection for VMwareDell EMC Data Protection Portfolio Overview: Cloud-Enabled, Software-Defined, VMware IntegratedMoving DR to the Cloud – When does it make sense?
