FORT MCMURRAY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/14 -- The Wood Buffalo Environmental Association (WBEA) is reaching out to Cree and Dene speaking community members through an informational video that has been translated into both Cree and Dene native languages.
The video gives stakeholders and community members an insider's look at WBEA's extensive air monitoring network, and explains exactly how WBEA goes about the job of continuously monitoring and reporting air quality for the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB).
WBEA Executive Director, Dr. Kevin Percy, said, "This video does a great job of showing community members exactly how we measure and report on air quality in our region. We thought it was important to have this resource translated to Cree and Dene in order to better reach out to our Aboriginal partners and stakeholders. We worked with local Cree and Dene speaking community members to do the voice over translations, and we are really pleased with the result."
WBEA's membership includes seven Aboriginal groups from within the RMWB, including, Fort McKay First Nations, Fort McKay Metis Local #63, Fort McMurray Metis Local #1935, Fort McMurray First Nation 468, Chipewyan Prairie Dene First Nation, Christina River Dene Nation Council and the Conklin Resource Development Advisory Council.
The newly translated video is titled WBEA Air Monitoring Network, and highlights include:
-- Interviews with Executive Director, Dr. Kevin Percy; Air Quality Scientist, Sanjay Prasad; and Senior Ambient Air Quality Technician, Gary Cross -- Tour of an Air Monitoring Station in Fort McMurray -- Step-by-step overview of air quality data process from collection through to real-time reporting -- An explanation of the Air Quality Health Index and why it's important to know the numbers
The English, Cree, Dene and sub-titled versions of the video are all available online on WBEA's website, www.wbea.org. The videos can also be viewed on WBEA's YouTube Channel, http://www.youtube.com/WoodBuffaloEnvAssoc.
The Wood Buffalo Environmental Association (WBEA) is an independent, community based, not-for-profit organization that monitors the air in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This is done through a variety of air, land and human monitoring programs. The air quality information collected is openly shared with stakeholders and the public.
What sort of WebRTC based applications can we expect to see over the next year and beyond? One way to predict development trends is to see what sorts of applications startups are building. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Arin Sime, founder of WebRTC.ventures, will discuss the current and likely future trends in WebRTC application development based on real requests for custom applications from real customers, as well as other public sources of information,

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost...
