Bell Let's Talk Day is January 28
The fourth annual Bell Let's Talk Day, set for January 28, 2014, invites Canadians to join the conversation to help end the stigma around mental illness.

Bell Let's Talk Day 2014 is supported by a major national promotional and education campaign featuring Clara and fellow Bell Let's Talk spokespeople Stefie Shock, Michel Mpambara and Seamus O'Regan. They're joined this year by new Bell Let's Talk ambassadors from across Canada - former NHL star Joé Juneau, CFL veteran Shea Emry, musicians Robb Nash and Matthew Good, and standup comic Kevin Breel.

On Bell Let's Talk Day, Bell donates 5 cents for every text sent, mobile call and long distance call made by Bell and Bell Aliant customers, every tweet using #BellLetsTalk, and every Facebook share of the Bell Let's Talk Day image. Bell's donations are made at no extra charge to Bell Let's Talk Day participants, though normal long distance or text charges, if any, apply. To date, Bell has already committed $62,043,289 to fund Canadian mental health programs based on its original $50 million commitment and participation in Bell Let's Talk Day since 2011.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
