LAKE WORTH, Fla., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) in cooperation with the City of Lake Worth would like to invite the public to the grand opening of the Tropical Ridge Fitness Park at 211 North "H" Street on Wednesday November 14th. Over two years ago, the CRA partnered with the Trust for Public Land, the Quantum Foundation, Wells Fargo Bank and School District of Palm Beach County to make this vision a reality. "We hope that the park helps encourage families to go outside and get moving. Daily physical activity is of vital importance not only for children but for adults and this park will help promote that," said Erica Whitfield, Healthy Kids, Healthy Community Program Coordinator.
The first phase of this project was completed this year on City owned property and will become Lake Worth's newest park. This initial phase includes the installation of nine new fitness workout stations. The workout stations were provided to the City courtesy of The Trust for Public Land. The Trust for Public Land conserves land for people to enjoy as parks, gardens, and other natural places, ensuring livable communities for generations to come. The Trust for Public Land's Fitness Zones provide a fun, accessible, and social environment where people can enjoy getting fit. These clusters of outdoor gym equipment provide park visitors with a cardiovascular and resistance/weight bearing workout.
"This is a wonderful example of how numerous organizations have come together, developed a united vision, and worked collaboratively in order to benefit the residents of Lake Worth," says Mayor Pam Triolo. "It is amazing how much can be accomplished by focusing on our common goals."
The CRA, and its partners, anticipate providing additional phases of work at the park (including new playground equipment) when funding becomes available.
This project would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors including, the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office, Compass, Palm Beach County Health Department, Palm Healthcare Foundation and the Tropical Ridge Neighborhood Association.
The grand opening ceremony will take place at 10:30 a.m. in front of the park which is located at 211 North 'H' Street. Speeches from local officials will be followed by free glucose screenings and risk tests courtesy of the FAU Diabetes Center, health education and exercise tips. All Lake Worth residents and members of the media are invited to attend. Parking is available along all side streets or at the Compass Center (202 North 'H' Street).
For more information on the Tropical Ridge Fitness Zone, please call the Lake Worth CRA office at (561) 493-2550 or visit www.lakeworthcra.org.
"The Lake Worth CRA is investing in our community to revitalize and rebuild our neighborhoods and commercial corridors. We are dedicated to maintaining the character of the City, responding to community needs and encouraging sustainable economic growth to improve the quality of life for our residents and the future health of our City."

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...

While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
