FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer (DDF) is excited to announce its 5th Annual Night of Laughter, taking place on Sunday, February 9, 2014 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's Improv Comedy Club. The doors will open at 5:45 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. The event chair for fourth year in a row is Sheri Albert.
DDF is pleased to welcome back Stewart Lapayowker as the event's Presenting Stand-Up Sponsor for his fourth consecutive year. Lapayowker is a renowned business aviation attorney by day, but for the Night of Laughter, he will let his comedic side shine when he performs a stand-up routine to benefit the organization.
"Debbie's bravery and her commitment to finding a cure exemplify the strength and fortitude of those afflicted with rare or less common cancers," said Lapayowker. "We are honored to stand with her in this noble battle."
Tickets to the event are $25 each and can be purchased on the DDF website. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. All proceeds from Night of Laughter will go directly to Debbie's Dream Foundation and are 100% tax deductible.
Last year's Night of Laughter was a tremendous success with a sold-out crowd of over 400 supporters. The event raised $21,000 and DDF hopes to top that with amazing raffle prizes and sponsorships this year. Event attendees are raising awareness and funds for DDF's incredible cause to help make curing stomach cancer a reality.
"The Night of Laughter was our first big event and had become our signature event. Our supporters enjoy themselves while raising awareness and research funds, and also supporting patients," said Debbie Zelman, President and Founder of Debbie's Dream Foundation. "I love this event because we fill the entire room and we all laugh together for a good cause."
Debbie Zelman founded the organization in 2009 after being diagnosed with stage IV stomach cancer. Debbie's Dream Foundation seeks as its ultimate goal to bring attention and action to this important cause. The organization encourages people to spread the word about early detection and screening because if a patient is diagnosed at an early stage, the chances of being cured dramatically increase.
To volunteer, participate, sponsor the event, or for more information about Debbie's Dream Foundation, please visit www.DebbiesDream.org or call (954) 475-1200.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
