VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo accompanying this press release.
British Columbia, Canada is an example of what diverse peoples can achieve when they work together, joined together in a common purpose. BC Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017. British Columbians in Canada are also proud of their country and its achievements with other nations such as India. Together Canada has developed partnerships and friendships with India which emerged from the immigration and cultural exchange in areas of religion, economy, and immigration policy. Canada is a prosperous and safe country whose promise is limited only by imagination; a place where people from around the world live in harmony; a federation united at home and respected abroad. Indo-Canadians, one of the drivers of job creation and economic growth through their innovations, investments, skills, traditions and values is the result of this partnership. Together steering the economy of the province, the British Columbia Peoples Party is committed to delivering on the important issues that matters most to Indo-Canadians. This includes enhancing Canada's role as an ambassador to building safe and secure communities within the world stage, such as the Indo-Canadian partnerships.
It was in Vancouver, B.C. where East Indians first arrived in the Koma Gata Maru Ship. At the time B.C. charged a head tax on the Chinese. Both the Provincial and Federal Governments have apologised for the "Dark History of 100 years". Now comes a new chapter in our history where Canadians must continue to forge new opportunities for our younger generation in order to build a fair society and a stronger economy at home and abroad.
"On behalf of the British Columbia Peoples Party and as Founder President, Vikram Bajwa, I invite you to Vancouver BC, Canada, to join us at the United Nations General Assembly, New York USA, on September 28th, 2014. I also formally request to eliminate the visa restrictions for Indo-Canadian Sikhs - 187 Indo-Canadian Sikhs, the majority of them residing in our province of British Columbia, Canada, whose grand fathers and mothers were freedom activists and torch bearers for the Freedom Movement of India. These pioneers are well documented in Home Minister of India records, helping to usher in a new era of goodwill and friendship, between India and British Columbia, Canada."
BCPP will advocate to the Prime Minister of India urging him to grant India's non-resident community, residing in Canada, blanket clearance, so that they can go to India and visit their family, such as aging parents and relatives as well as visiting holy site such as the Golden temple Amritsar, Haridawar and Varanasi. "Your wise decision will go a long ways with reciprocation from the second generation of Indo-Canadians in British Columbia" said Sukhdev Dhillon, member BCPP.
BCPP strongly feels that the leadership by the Prime Minister of India can improve issues of brain drain of skill, partnerships in energy and resources in India with Indo-Canadians living in British Columbia.
The British Columbia Peoples Party exists to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality, community and multiculture, and in which no one shall be enslaved by race, poverty, ignorance or conformity, granted in British Columbia, under the Canadian Charter. The primary purpose of BCPP (Party) is to field candidates for elections to the British Columbia Legislative Assembly and play an important role, for your voice to be heard in Victoria B.C., to formulate changes to make British Columbia a better place on Earth.
We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the fullest. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the province is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.
We look forward to hearing and servicing the citizens of British Columbia! We strive to enable everyone with the same basic rights, so that they can live together in peace and develop their full potential.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense.
In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
