Early Times Named "Official Drink of Kentucky Derby 140®"

LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For the past 27 years, the Early Times Mint Julep has proudly served as the "Official Drink of the Kentucky Derby®."  In celebration of this, Early Times Kentucky Whisky continues its tradition with the release of the 2014 commemorative Kentucky Derby bottle.

Available beginning in March 2014, the one-liter pre-mix bottle will be available in limited quantities throughout the United States for a suggested retail price of $15.99.

The artwork on this year's Kentucky Derby 140® bottle features the work of acclaimed artist and Louisville native, Ashley Cecil. Ashley's stunning work, "Time For the Roses" celebrates the moment when the traditional garland of more than 400 red roses is presented to the Kentucky Derby winner.

The excitement of the Winner's Circle is captured on the bottle with an image of the winning jockey sitting atop his horse draped in a garland of roses. Beside the horse is a woman presenting a bouquet of roses to the jockey and several other onlookers in the background.

"We are excited to feature a new artist this year and feel that Ashley's work perfectly captures the most emotional moment for a winning jockey," said Therese McGuire, brand manager for Early Times Kentucky Whisky. "Not only is the Early Times Mint Julep bottle a work of art, but also a must-have for every Kentucky Derby party to provide a quick and easy mint julep."

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
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.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud.
