LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- Players Network (OTCQB: PNTV), a Digital Television, Technology and New Media company that develops, owns, and operates Branded Lifestyle Channel Destinations today announced that they completed an agreement for Jennifer Solas and Kurt Duchac to be the newest special correspondents to join WeedTV and provide strategic industry consulting to the Company.

Jennifer Solas is the Founder of W.E.C.A.N702 ("Wellness Education Cannabis Advocates of Nevada") a non-profit organization providing educational symposiums and patient support. Jennifer has been one of the leading Cannabis advocates in Nevada along with Kurt Duchac. Jennifer and Kurt host a weekly Radio Talk Show on KLAV in Las Vegas with leading members of the Cannabis Community. They will have a weekly video column on WeedTV providing information specifically on the progress of Marijuana Legislation in Nevada and General educational segments.

Jennifer Solas stated, "We are so pleased to be able to join the WeedTV team and family. This industry needs a television network and Players Networks professionalism and established distribution to over 100 million homes provides a true national platform to help educate people on how important medical marijuana is to so many people in need. There has been so much progress over the past few years but it is important that we continue to build awareness so people understand this multi-billion industry."

Last year Nevada past Senate Bill 374 approving 53 medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the State and 40 in Clark County. Nevada has also approved additional commercial cultivation and business operations which will dramatically increase marijuana related revenue in the State. Clark County alone approved 101 marijuana related cultivation and processing business licenses on June 17, 2014. Looking at Colorado as an indication of the potential future economic impact to Nevada, Colorado marijuana Sales topped $202 million in the first four months of 2014, with Marijuana sales revenues expected to grow well over a $1.0 billion annually. As Nevada moves forward with issuing both dispensary and cultivation licenses this bodes well for the already booming Nevada Marijuana industry. The Company expects to capitalize on being based in Las Vegas to access this rich source of program content as well as new advertisers and sponsors.

Mark Bradley, CEO of Players Network stated, "We are extremely excited about both Jennifer Solas and Kurt Duchac support and participation to help to grow WeedTV. They both have been extremely influential in the Nevada Cannabis Communities and bring a wealth of knowledge and relationships to the Company.

By aligning with credentialed and established players in the Cannabis Community like Jennifer and Kurt we will quickly expand both our program content and business relationships to build this Network Channel Destination."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
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.

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data.
