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.

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.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
