Scrubbing Bubbles® and Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housely Help Americans Give Back in 2014

With More People Resolving to Give Back this Year, Let's Bubble™ Helps Communities Across the Country Receive a Helping Hand

RACINE, Wis., Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The new year always seems to bring with it a fresh start. It's a time when nine out of 10 Americans resolve to do and act better in the months to come. And in 2014, according to a new survey conducted by Scrubbing Bubbles®, more than 70 percent of Americans are resolving to give back to their communities – with many making it their top resolution[1].

Despite these well-intentioned commitments, more than 30 percent of resolutions made aren't kept beyond January. Scrubbing Bubbles® is determined to help people stick to their resolutions this year, giving people an easy way to be active in their communities with the launch of Let's Bubble™.

Let's Bubble™ is a nationwide call to action for Americans to help others by cleaning messes big and small in 2014. People can nominate places in their community most deserving of a clean-up powered by the Scrubbing Bubbles®  clean-up team. Eligible locations could include the greasy kitchen at the local elementary school in need of some Scrubbing Bubbles® TLC, bathrooms at the local community center or any other deserving area. Once all submissions have been received and finalists have been chosen in mid-February, visitors to the Let's Bubble™ webpage will vote to determine the four most deserving locations in the country.

To help motivate and inspire Americans to give back this year, Scrubbing Bubbles® has partnered with actresses Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housely, known just as much for their ongoing philanthropic efforts as for their roles in television and film over the years. 

"We've grown up being active members of our communities and are raising our own families to do the same," said Tamera Mowry-Housely. "We are proud to be able to provide this opportunity to deserving communities across the country and hope to encourage people to make an effort, big or small, toward helping others in 2014," added sister Tia Mowry-Hardrict.

Let's Bubble™!
Scrubbing Bubbles® kicked off the Let's Bubble™ program on New Year's Eve in Times Square and asked revelers to share their wishes for locations they'd like the Let's Bubble™ ambassadors to clean in their local communities.

Throughout January, people can nominate a location in need by submitting their text, photo or video entries via #letsbubble or by visiting ScrubbingBubbles.com/letsbubble.

Scrubbing Bubbles® will be scouring the submissions and selecting the nine most deserving locations from December 31, 2013February 15, 2014 who will win $500 for their charity. It is then up to America to vote on which locations they think should win a clean-up from March 15April 15, 2014. The four locations with the most votes will win their Scrubbing Bubbles® clean-up the week of April 15, 2014.

  • Gen Y, oh so kind: Millennials (aged 18-34) are more likely (30 percent) than any other age group to resolve to be more active in their community.
  • Stick with it: More than half of Americans will not meet their resolution goals, especially those resolving to give back to others.
  • Make it a team effort: Men are more likely than women to resolve to be more active in the community
  • Try something new: Women are more likely than than men to resolve to experience new things in 2014

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.
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 session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
