NEW YORK, Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- How would it feel for a wheelchair-bound person to experience the thrill of surfing in the Ocean? Tune in to the premiere of the new television series Everyday Health. Each episode profiles ordinary people who overcome extraordinary obstacles and who are helping others lead healthier, happier lives. Laila Ali, Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca will host the weekly program premiering in over 95% of the country's ABC affiliates including ABC owned stations. EverydayHealth.com/TV will provide additional content and supporting materials. The show is brought to you by the leading online health site, Everyday Health, and will air as part of Litton's Weekend Adventure, beginning Saturday, September 3, 2011.
Each week, Everyday Health profiles people who are either facing a health crisis or are close to someone facing a life-altering health event, and they are not wasting time helping others in a similar situation. Each program addresses a medical condition, sometimes includes a celebrity guest, and always provides a surprise reveal for the person profiled.
Hosted by a trio of health ambassadors -- Laila Ali, a world-class, elite athlete; Ethan Zohn, a former professional soccer player and humanitarian; and Jenna Morasca, champion of Survivor: The Amazon -- the premiere episode features Jesse Billauer and his organization Life Rolls On. At age 17, Billauer had his surfing career cut short following a spinal cord injury which left him a quadriplegic -- and there are an average of 6,700 new spinal cord injuries among youths annually. Determined to surf again and help others, he founded Life Rolls On. His organization improves the quality of life for young people affected by spinal cord injuries and utilizes action sports as a platform to inspire infinite possibilities despite paralysis. Everyday Health surprises Billauer by hosting an overwhelmingly successful fundraiser, with help from friends including a musical performance by Jason Mraz. Jesse is surprised with an adaptive bicycle, and an adaptive surfboard is also provided by Everyday Health.

It will include in-depth coverage of the medical conditions addressed in each episode, expert interviews, video, images and resources to get involved with any of the not-for-profit organizations profiled.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
