In Wake Of Sandy Hook Shooting A New 911-Wristwatch May Save Lives

Instant Emergency Notification Device Launches Crowdfunding Campaign

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new high-tech device, called the LEO, will help parents and emergency services quickly and efficiently respond to children in times of crisis. Jason Sullivan, inventor and father of two, has patented and developed a 911-GPS emergency locator wristwatch enabled with voice communications and a panic button system that promises to change the way we think about protecting our children.

"I originally invented the LEO out of a passion to create a device that could protect our children from the impacts of abduction and predation. The outcome has evolved into a wristwatch that can literally be used by all ages for virtually any emergency situation," says Sullivan.

The LEO watch is designed with a titanium band and optional locking mechanism, making it virtually impossible to cut through and has sensors that will notify emergency responders if an unauthorized attempt is made to remove the device. Parents have a web-based interface that they are able to use on any computer or smart phone to locate their child in seconds, a critical feature given that time is of the essence in any life-threatening situation.

Named by Inc. Magazine as "Most Likely to Succeed" and hailed by Marc Klaas, the President of KlaasKids Foundation and BeyondMissing, Inc. as "The closest thing to the Holy Grail of child protection devices as anything will ever get," the LEO has been attracting a significant amount of attention, including being featured on The Ricky Lake Show and already is widely anticipated at the upcoming CES Show in Las Vegas. The overwhelming response and support of the LEO has made Sullivan decide to go directly to the public to raise money to launch his life-saving device.

"Everything has indicated that this potentially life-saving device is being wildly accepted by the public, so we decided to reach out to the people directly to help bring the LEO to market." says Sullivan. The LEO can be found at www.whenyouwish.com/leo

In light of the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, Sullivan said his company will donate a portion of the proceeds from the campaign to the families of the victims.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).

Cloud computing changed data analytics for good. It enabled companies to drastically decrease resources and architecture previously assigned with business intelligence departments. It also enabled laymen to run advanced business analytics. Cloud was also the architecture of choice for storing and processing big data. Data piling is a continuous process, which is going to explode with emerging Internet of Things concept. Answer to this issue developers found in new concept called fog computing. ...
