The Zerbini Elephants Are Back! They Will Be Part of the Shrine Circus' 6 Stop Tour of Ontario

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Editors Note: There are three photos and one video associated with this press release.

The Zerbini Elephants - Marie and Shelly - have finally arrived in Canada. They will join the Thrill Acts at the World Famous Shrine Circus for a 6 stop tour of Ontario, including the GTA, and are now the only performing circus elephants in Canada.

Saturn Garcia will also perform the thrilling Human Cannonball and the death defying Wheel of Destiny under Canada's only traditional European Big-Top Circus. Upcoming venues include Brampton, Woodbridge, Milton, Markham, Paris and Ottawa.

The 2014 all-new showcase also includes: the Year of the Horse Spectacular with the Zerbini Liberty Horses and the Zamperla Zoppe Jiocke Acrobatic Riders plus Trapeze and Aerial Artistry, Juggling, Sword Balancing, the Perilous Pole Perch, Musical Comedy, High Flying Romanian Teeterboard Acrobatics, Classical Clowns and more.

"The Shrine Circus is a traditional European big-top family circus caravan; adult performers, their children and their animals," said Larry Solheim, Circus Tour Manager. "We'll take you into a world where you'll see spectacular performances from around the globe; Germany, Romania, Italy, Argentina, Mexico, France, USA and Canada."

As part of their commitment to the responsible and economically viable preservation of rare, endangered and exotic animals, Tarzan's daughter, Patti and her husband own an exotic animal sanctuary near Gainesville, Florida (www.allaboutelephants.com).

"Elephants are incredibly intelligent; they love to be challenged, and thrive on human interaction," added Solheim. "I think we've found a workable compromise, whereby the Zerbini Asian Elephants can tour Canada in the summer months, and retire to the warmer climates of the USA in winter. This should satisfy everyone and still allow children to experience these magnificent animals firsthand."

The Annual Shrine Circus is one of the largest fraternal events sponsored by the Shriners. The Shrine Circus provides a quality, fun filled family experience with proceeds going to great causes - the good work of Shriners in your community. Kids Up Front is also the designated agency giving deserving children an opportunity to come and see the show. For more information and to purchase tickets online please visit www.shrine-circus.com.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
