Local Ocean Literacy Educational Program Hosts Tasting and Expert Panel Discussion

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- ExplorOcean, a non-profit ocean literacy center, has organized a fun afternoon event to raise support and awareness of its educational programs for school-age children. Simply Sensational Sustainable Seafood will be held Sunday, June 8, to coincide with the nationally celebrated World Oceans Day, and will feature a seafood tasting, live entertainment, ocean-themed activities for children, and an interactive panel discussion.

The mission of ExplorOcean is to inspire, educate and engage the explorer within through interactive ocean literacy-based experiences grounded in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) -- programs and curriculum. Simply Sensational Sustainable Seafood will be open to all ages, and will celebrate the diversity of the ocean's life and ecosystems with a focus on sustainability.

"At the Simply Sensational Sustainable Seafood event, we will teach students and their parents what seafood sustainability really means," says Wendy Marshall, Ed.D., director of education and public programs for ExplorOcean. "We hope by the end of the event, everyone there will understand the difference between wild-caught vs. farm-raised seafood and which options are available for their family tables."

In addition to the interactive panel, the Simply Sensational Sustainable Seafood event will include children's ocean-themed activities and eco-friendly home goods available for purchase. Tickets to attend the event are $25 for members, and $35 for non-members. Attendees will be treated to appetizers, drinks and desserts as well as take part in a seafood tasting.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.
