As evidenced by Gartner’s recently released Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems, the converged infrastructure market is growing significantly, and we want to enable our partners to take full advantage of this opportunity. We continue to see great traction with the new value-based VCE Partner Program we announced last year. And as our partner community grows, VCE also continues to innovate, creating additional opportunities for partners.Earlier this year, CRN also honored a number of VCE individuals. Chris Sullivan was named one of CRN’s 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs, and Leslee Mesick was honored as one of the 2014 Women of the Channel and The Power 100: The Most Powerful Women in the Channel. These accolades all speak to the exceptional work of the VCE channel organization to build the incredible momentum we have going into the second half of the year. And, of course, we wouldn’t be successful without the support of our trusted partners and their strong belief in our capabilities to solve customer problems.
KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Ugandan presidential challenger Bobi Wine on Monday launched a court case seeking to overturn the re-election of President Yoweri Museveni, who has been in power for 35 years. Wine, whose real name is Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, had suggested he did not want to legitimize Museveni’s victory in last month’s polls by seeking justice with a court that has been reluctant to rule against the president in past elections. The Supreme Court ruled three times that electoral irregularities were not substantial enough to affect the outcome. Museveni won the Jan. 14 elections with 58% of the vote while Wine had 35%, according to final results announced last week by the electoral commission after accounting for results from nearly all polling stations.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A legislative panel has dismissed two petitions calling for the impeachment of Kentucky’s governor. But the committee on Friday kept alive another effort by citizens seeking the Democrat’s ouster. The petitions seek Beshear’s impeachment for his restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19. The House panel requested more information from Beshear as it reviews the remaining petition against the governor. Kentucky’s Supreme Court ruled last year that the governor had the authority to put restrictions on businesses and individuals to try to contain the coronavirus. A petition seeking the impeachment of the state’s Republican attorney general is still pending.
