John Paul Pet and the Los Angeles Animal Alliance Announce the First Super Senior May Event

Super Senior May: Never Too Old to Play May 1-31st

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/02/12 -- John Paul Pet announces it has joined forces with the Los Angeles Animal Alliance, Barcelona Enterprises and dozens of Southern California agencies that are committed to animal welfare for the first ever Super Senior May event to be held throughout the month. In this unprecedented event, local animal welfare organizations will target the adoption of mature pets by our community's senior population. Super Senior May was specifically designed to coincide with 'Older Americans Month: Never Too Old to Play' May 2012.

John Paul Pet has championed animal rights and is dedicated to helping pets of all ages find loving forever homes. Senior pets are great companions for the elderly due to their maturity and the ease with which they can be handled. The pairing of these two wonderful segments of the population is ideal as they provide health benefits to each other in numerous ways. Nothing reduces stress or promotes activity like the unconditional love of your furry friend.

Event Specials include: adoption discounts, contests and giveaways. Specials and promotions will vary from shelter to shelter, so please check with each shelter for specifics about this exciting event.

Super Senior May is organized by a collaborative committee of Southland humane leadership from agencies including Irvine Animal Care Center, Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, the Los Angeles Animal Alliance, Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control, Orange County Animal Care, Riverside County Department of Animal Services, and the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health Animal Care and Control.

Psychological studies have found that pet owners report to be as emotionally close to their furry counterparts as they are to their closest family members. What better way to spend your golden years than sharing your love with a senior pet in need of companionship? By visiting your local shelter during the month of May, you may find more than just an animal companion. You may find the love of your life!

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
