LOS ANGELES, March 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes (CSAH) for the upcoming "Charity Spring Benefit Wine Tasting Reception" on Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in San Diego, CA. The evening will feature special guest entertainer, famed tenor Anthony Kearns.
Coalition representatives, Corporal Donny Daughenbaugh, U.S. Marine Corps (Ret), the Coalition's Regional Vice President East and its national spokesman, and Sergeant Matthew Pennington, U.S. Army (Ret.), who writes the "Matthew Pennington Blog Series" for the Coalition website, will attend the event on behalf of the organization.
"We are thrilled to work with the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes for this wonderful event to raise funds for our new Wild for Life Foundation Charity Sanctuary & Wellness Center, which will provide programs with a focus on its community enrichment equine wellness activities, and robust equine assisted programs for disadvantaged youth, active duty military, and veterans and their families," said Katia Louise, Founder, President and Volunteer Executive Director, WFLF. "We are honored to stand together with CSAH to embrace healing through horses."
"The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes is proud to support WFLF and their extraordinary work to help veterans find healing through horse-assisted therapy. This is a great program that aligns well with our goals of supporting young war-wounded veterans effectively and successfully transition to civilian life," said David Walker, President and CEO of the Coalition.
Walker said that Corporal Daughenbaugh and Sergeant Pennington are uniquely suited to represent the Coalition. As a national spokesperson, Daughenbaugh has served as an inspiration to other veterans through his story of resilience. Daughenbaugh lives with a bullet lodged at the base of his skull near his brain, the result of being shot in the face while on night foot patrol with his patrol in Mahmoudiyah, Iraq.
Pennington has also taken his message of struggle and survival to other veterans, and also to medical practitioners who are refining methods for dealing with injured veterans, especially those with PTSD. Besides writing for the Coalition, Pennington was featured in a New York University documentary, "A Marine's Guide to Fishing," about a wounded veteran struggling to readjust to civilian life.
The new facilities will align with the EAGALA Military Services Designation (MSD) and will be managed by the WFLF BOD, including Rob Pliskin, MSSA, LSW, an EAGALA Dual Certified Professional, who has been gentling wild horses for over 15 years. Pliskin will also attend the event.
The event will feature an exclusive live auction with custom artwork donated by one of the Nation's most famous living artists, Peter Max, who is also a pop culture icon. Mr. Max has painted for six U.S. Presidents, and his art is on display in Presidential Libraries and U.S. Embassies.
The Coalition, a leading not-for-profit organization dedicated to rebuilding the lives of severely wounded veterans of the War on Terror, was recently a part of a successful event on March 1, 2014 at the new, equine-inspired Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg, VA, located amidst Virginia's wine and horse country. The event was a stirring tribute to U.S. military and their families, and featured Kearns as the headliner. Famed steeplechase jockey, Sean Clancy, who became the 10th highest winner of all time upon his retirement in 2000, was the evening's emcee. Among other projects, The Coalition is a proud supporter of the Horses Helping Heroes Project to fund equine-assisted activities for wounded veterans in Virginia.
The Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) is a 501 (c)(3) U.S. registered tax exempt nonprofit charity. The WFLF has been at the forefront of efforts to rescue and provide safe harbor for at risk animals, providing the space, natural habitat and quality of care which they deserve. The WFLF is also dedicated to community enrichment equine wellness activities, and robust equine assisted programs for disadvantaged youth, active duty military, and veterans and their families through the healing power of horses. www.WildforlifeFoundation.org, https://twitter.com/savingamehorses, https://www.facebook.com/WildforLifeFoundation, @savingamehorses #savingamehorses

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
