PETERBOROUGH, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/13/14 -- The outstanding event last year that brought 1,200 people to a frozen Chemong Lake is back this weekend to get families out jigging. The OFAH Family Ice Fishing Day draws people from around the Kawarthas and as far away as Brampton. This Saturday, join eager anglers, new and experienced, as they become 'hooked' on one of our greatest outdoor traditions - ice fishing. The OFAH Family Ice Fishing Day is held during the Ontario Family Fishing Events, which allows Canadian residents to fish licence-free across the province.
OFAH TackleShare will be on-site handing out fishing equipment, bait and ice safety information, all at no cost. All holes will be predrilled and volunteers will be available to help bait hooks and provide fishing tips. Regardless of their catch, OFAH TackleShare will also be providing each youth participant with a goody bag and prize item.
OFAH TackleShare is generously sponsored by Ontario Power Generation (OPG), which cautions all sports enthusiasts that water near hydroelectric stations and dams is dangerous. "Our message is simple," said Mike Martelli, OPG's senior vice-president of Hydro-Thermal Operations, "Stay clear, stay safe."
"This event is a great opportunity for friends and families to get involved in their community and take part in one of our greatest Canadian winter pastimes," said Angelo Lombardo, executive director of the OFAH. "The cold weather has contributed to a great year of ice fishing in Ontario and we encourage families to take advantage and try something new."
The OFAH / Mario Cortellucci Hunting & Fishing Heritage Centre will also have its doors open on February 15, for a variety of activities, including lure making, the laser shot hunting simulator and watching the fish feeding frenzy in the Shimano Sportfish Aquarium. Qualified range officers will also be set up in the Excalibur Archery Range and Stoeger Airgun Range for those who would like to test their aim. In addition, there will be a movie playing in the amphitheatre, as well as hot chocolate and popcorn available at no cost.
Media are invited to attend this free event, both on and off the ice, which includes terrific video and photo opportunities of youth learning traditional outdoor activities. In addition, Canadian Tire has donated an ice hut and power auger for the Grand Prize draw at 1:45pm at Bel Rotary Park.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

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. In this power panel at @...
