SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/12/14 -- Inside Media, a communications and consulting firm in San Diego, California, winner of (7) Edward R Murrow awards including the 2004 National award for writing, pioneered a new look at the Affordable Care Act in 2013. Partnering with Strategic Global Investments, Inc., they have co-produced a comprehensive series of informational videos that offered a greater understanding of the health care legislation commonly known as "Obama Care." Today, Inside Media is addressing the controversial debate surrounding US immigration.
Inside Media President Chip Franklin, whose commentary on the political landscape has made him a regular on The O'Reilly Factor, CNN, CNBC, The Situation Room, is proud of the company's relationship with attorney and author Vaughan de Kirby (www.dekirby.net). De Kirby believes passionately in the plight of the U.S. immigrant. The author of "The Investor's Path to a Green Card," de Kirby rejects the current spin on immigrants coming to the U.S. to 'take jobs." His focus is attracting immigrants that are coming to the US to "create" employment opportunities for Americans. Vaughan de Kirby's book chronicles a little known, yet 20 year-old law designed to stimulate economic growth called an EB-5 visa.
Whether it's the political turbulence in the Ukraine, or the Malaysia Airlines flight that mysteriously fell from the sky, it's not hard to understand why so many people still head to our shores. But that great demand is creating a political maelstrom that cannot be ignored.
Immigration is no longer seen as a pool from which we grow the best and brightest. To the contrary, politicians and activists attack our current immigration policies as lax and a threat to America. It is however, not without some irony that many of our greatest achievements were, in fact, built on the backs of immigrants. Railroads, bridges and dams solidified the infrastructure of an emerging nation. And our strength and prosperity are not only tied to these efforts, but would have never been realized without the men and women who came here searching for a better life. Recently however, immigration has become a synonym for opportunism; those seeking to steal a piece of the American dream. And since September 11th, 2001, the battle has spilled over into the surreal. The plight of the US immigrant, once the bedrock of this great nation, has been transformed into a political pejorative.
For the past 50 years here in California, the popular refrain was that immigrants are doing jobs that Americans refuse to perform. And with unemployment rates stubbornly refusing to return to pre-recession levels, the backlash against immigration is centering on the availability of employment, supposedly even low wage jobs traditionally held by first generation Americans. And that's where Vaughan de Kirby enters the story.
Described in great detail An EB-5 visa offers the opportunity to obtain a U.S. Green Card by investing in American businesses. Created by Congress to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors, EB-5 was created in 1990, enacted in 1992 and has been regularly reauthorized since.
An EB-5 visa makes it possible to obtain a Green Card for an individual and his entire family by making an investment of $500,000 in an approved, new commercial enterprise. The investment must also result in the creation of jobs. de Kirby is proud of his firm's success, but even more so of his clients dogged determination to participate in the American experience. "My clients are here because they have worked very hard and intelligently to place themselves and their family in the financial position to make an EB-5 investment. Their work ethic and intelligence requires that if they make this investment they want to know that it offers the immigration benefits bargained for."
Each year, 10,000 EB-5 visas become available to foreign investors looking to immigrate to the US. The amount needed to invest often depends on factors such as location, unemployment rates, and agricultural considerations. But de Kirby is excited by the opportunities not only for his clients, but our nation as well.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
