Pascale's Pals Annual Fundraiser Receives Another Contribution from Entrepreneur Matt Argall

MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/26/14 -- In March, Pascale's Pals hosted their 16th annual benefit auction at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia, Missouri. Attending Guests were treated to an elegant dinner, followed by a fun night of dancing to the unique musical blend of Blues, R&B, Jazz, Big Band and Soul by the Norm Rubling Band. Undoubtedly the highlight of the evening was the silent auction accompanied by cocktails and social mingling, during which exclusive luxury items were sold. Every cent that was made throughout the event -- from tickets to donations, from sponsor advertisements in the printed auction program to money raised through the auction -- is used to support the Children's Hospital, the main cause of Pascale's Pals, Inc., a non-profit corporation developed to benefit the children and families staying at said hospital.

Florida-based businessman and philanthropist, Matt Argall along with his wife Maya, have been generously donating to Pascale's Pals for the last five years and are happy to see how the money is put to use. "The organization has been helping families whose children have to stay in the hospital. With the support of Pascale's Pals, some of the stress and burden that both, the child and the parents, experience through these often traumatic times, can be relieved. Over the years, Pascale's Pals has built a playground, furnished all 34 rooms in the Women and Children's Hospital with flat screen TVs, DVD players and Wii systems and donated sleeper beds and chairs in all rooms, so parents can comfortably stay with their sick kids," Matt explains.

It is not only the idea of helping families in need that motivates Matt Argall to continuously support the organization, he actually has a very personal connection to it: Pascale, the foundation's namesake, is Matt's maternal cousin. At the age of two, Pascale was diagnosed with acute leukemia. What followed was a long and hard battle against the cancer. After many courses of treatment and a serious relapse in 2000, Pascale is now doing very well and has developed into a happy and successful college student. "To witness what she has been through and see where she is today really warms my heart," says Argall. "And I am proud that now that Pascale is doing so well, she and my aunt - who founded Pascale's Pal - are helping other families who are going through difficult times." Matt's parents have also been big supporters of the foundation and its mission, working hard to get the word out about the good deeds done by the organization and how others can get involved.

Matt Argall is a successful entrepreneur who lives in Miami, Florida, with his wife Maya and their little son. He started out in the business world by bringing a dwindling online company back to life when he was only 17 years old. Since then has made himself a name as a savvy marketer and entrepreneur who is always keen to explore new business ideas. With his more than twenty years of experience and numerous companies that he launched in various industries, from telecommunications to the insurance sector, Argall is respected as investor and sought after as a business advisor. In his spare time, Matt enjoys spending time with his family and is a very engaged philanthropist. He supports local causes like his aunt's foundation as well as international organizations that help young start-ups in developing countries to found and run successful small businesses.

Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycl...
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
