(OTCBB: PINS) (OTCQB: PINS) ("Pinacle" or the "Company") and its wholly owned subsidiary Alkame Water Inc. are pleased to announce their continued support for youth basketball with Basketball Maui, a non-profit organization dedicated to the character and basketball fundamentals development of the young people of Maui through the game of basketball.
Alkame Water recently partnered with Basketball Maui as the lead sponsor of the 3rd Annual Night of Shooting Stars, a professional exhibition basketball game of current NBA players and international professionals/celebrities with ties to Hawaii, held at the Lahaina Civic Center on the island of Maui.
Alkame Water was on hand at this year's event to super hydrate and oxygenate the hard working athletes during the competition. More than 2,400 basketball fans were kept on the edge of their seats as they watched some Hawaiian VIPS go head to head with NBA superstars as they raise funds for Basketball Maui's youth basketball programs.
NBA and other pro players on the court to support Basketball Maui included, Corey Maggette (Detroit Pistons), Anthony Tolliver (Atlanta Hawks), Jeremy Tyler (New York Knicks), Kelenna Azubuike (Golden State Warriors/Dallas Mavericks), Reggie Williams ( Houston Rockets), Terrence Williams ( Boston Celtics), Jeff Adrien (Charlotte Bobcats), Nate Robinson (Chicago Bulls), Isaiah Thomas (Sacramento Kings), Patrick Ewing, Jr., (Sacramento Kings/Euro Pro League), Ray Weathers ( Euro Pro League, Michigan State), Julian Sensley (Asian Pro League and former U. of Hawaii player), and Derrick Low (Euro Pro League, Los Angeles Clippers, and former 'Iolani high school player).
"We are proud to continue to provide sponsorship support to organizations like Basketball Maui that make a positive impact on the lives of young people through sports and wellness programs," commented Robert Eakle, Alkame CEO. "Participating in a top charity event with so many well-known professional NBA basketball players and local celebrities gives us the opportunity to help the local community and also increases awareness of Alkame's patented ultra-hydration water formula on national scale."
Alkame Water's patented technology and micro-clustered, alkaline, antioxidant, and oxygenated formula increases water's antioxidant properties and increases absorption rate and efficiency allowing for ultra-hydration. In addition to being a superior hydration source, Alkame Water's unique technology also increases the oxygen content of the water providing more bio-available oxygen to be processed into the bloodstream and throughout the body, which equates to improved metabolic efficiency, boosted immune system and improved cardio respiratory function.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

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 IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
