KIRKLAND, Wash., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Why are some middle-aged Americans buying long-term care insurance (LTCi) for their aging parents? It's partly because Mom and Dad may need help with the tasks of daily living, but can't afford a policy to pay for it, according to Denise Gott, National Sales Manager of LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP). It's also because the kids don't want to end up paying the bills out of savings, jeopardizing their own retirement, or to disrupt their lives to tend to Mom or Dad personally.
There's a deeper motivation for the gift of LTCi, though. "The grown kids want to give back to those who gave them so much," says Gott. "This was pointed out by one of our senior specialists, Paula Taylor of Oakland, CA." According to Taylor and Gott, the grateful children express their feeling in many deeply-felt ways. For example --
- "My father put me through school, and I will take care of him now so he can spend his remaining years at home."
- "Mom taught me so much, how to play the guitar and read before other kids knew how. Dad taught me to raise and pluck chickens, shoot a gun safely, and own up to my mistakes. They never neglected me, and I'm not going to neglect them now."
- "She changed my diapers, bandaged my fingers, kissed my bruises. I'm going to make sure she's cared for too."
- "They gave me the gift of life and everything that followed. I can give them a policy."
For reasons of your own, the gift of long-term care might be worth considering whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or another end-of-year holiday. But, "it may be an invaluable gift any time of year," says Gott. Colleagues who share this view include --

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
