Claude Lévi-Strauss, Emmanuelle Loyer, 360 MAGAZINE

Claude Lévi-Strauss

Academic, writer, figure of melancholy, aesthete – Claude Lévi-Strauss (1908-2009) not only transformed his academic discipline, he also profoundly changed the way that we view ourselves and the world around us.

In this award-winning biography, historian Emmanuelle Loyer recounts Lévi-Strauss’s childhood in an assimilated Jewish household, his promising student years as well as his first forays into political and intellectual movements. As a young professor in 1935 Lévi-Strauss left Paris for São Paulo to teach sociology. His rugged expeditions into the Brazilian hinterland, where he discovered the Amerindian Other, made him into ananthropologist. The racial laws of the Vichy regime would force him to leave France yetagain — this time for the US in 1941, where he became Professor Claude L. Strauss, toavoid confusion with the jeans manufacturer.

His return to France, after the war, ushered in the period during which he produced his greatest works: several decades of intense labour in which Lévi-Strauss reinvented anthropology, establishing it as a discipline that offered a new view on the world. In 1955, Tristes Tropiques offered indisputable proof of this the world over. During those years, Lévi-Strauss became something of a national monument, a celebrity intellectual in France. But he always claimed his perspective was a “view from afar,” enabling him to deliver incisive and subversive diagnoses of our waning modernity.

Loyer’s outstanding biography tells the story of a true intellectual adventurer whose unforgettable voice invites us to rethink questions of the human and the meaning of progress. Lévi-Strauss was less of a modern than he was our own great and disquieted contemporary.

Global Data Center Isreal

Israeli company Global Data Center doubled the capacity of its facility in an investment of millions of dollars

Global Data Center, a leading provider of a cutting-edge data center facility in Israel, has completed the doubling of its facility in an investment of millions of dollars.

Most of the expanded area in Global Data Center’s facility in Herzliya (near Tel Aviv) has already been filled with IT infrastructures of both existing and new clients of the company. The expanded area provides all the standards, services and levels of service provided by the facility’s original area. The expansion of the data center’s area by more than twice joins other measures that the company has taken recently, such as tripling the data center’s business continuity space, allowing the company’s clients to quickly move to work at the Herzliya facility in an emergency.

Global Data Center operates a secured underground data center facility built in compliance with the latest global standards. The tier-3 site provides hosting services for IT operations units, full business continuity and disaster recovery, as well as on-site and remote back-up, cloud computing services, on-demand control and operating services, and smart hands services.

Companies using the services of Global Data Center’s facility include leading institutional organizations in Israel such as Harel Insurance Investments and Financial Services Ltd., Clal Insurance Enterprises Holdings Ltd., IBI Investment House Ltd., alongside industrial firms. Global Data Center also hosts at its facility some of Israel’s leading high-tech companies such as Infinidat Ltd., Zerto Ltd., SolarEdge Technologies Inc. and DSP Group, alongside multi-national corporations, government organizations and other entities.

Global Data Center was founded by Moshe Lasman in 2013 in cooperation with and the financial backing of Viola Group and Leon Recanati’s GlenRock Investments. Lasman previously served as the head of the Outsourcing Department at IBM Israel and head of Global Services at HP Israel. Alongside Lasman, the company’s executive team includes experienced managers from tier-1 companies in Israel.

Moshe Lasman, founder and CEO of Global Data Center, said: “the expansion of our data center is a significant milestone for us and good news for Israel-related companies and organizations which would like to host their IT infrastructure in a way that ensures business continuity, around the clock service, security, survivability and cost savings. Digital transformation, the critical role of data in business processes and the flexible model for consuming electricity and area drive organizations to receive services from high quality specialized vendors such as Global Data Center.”

Lasman continued: “As a data center which has been active for five years without any fault, the expansion serves as a proof for the strong momentum we are experiencing, when large Israel-based organization have stopped hesitating whether their infrastructure should be hosted at an external facility, and just ask how and where the hosting should take place. We will continue to be an essential foundation for any large organization which aims to leverage the benefits of hosting its IT and communications systems at an accessible data center which complies with the most rigorous international standards and is equipped with all the required certifications and licenses.”
