Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies Presents "Decoding Hate"

A Brief Overview of the 2014 Al Quds Rally at Queen's Park

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/01/14 --

Editors Note: There is a photo and video accompanying this press release.

Rising levels of antisemitism around the world, from Arabic chants of "slaughter the Jews" at a rally in Belgium to the destruction of Jewish owned stores and property, and cries of "Death to Jews" at protests in France and all across Europe, have now made their way to Canada.

This past weekend was the site of one of the most profound antisemitic protests ever to take place in the city of Toronto at Queen's Park. The annual Al Quds rally, established by the Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran and exported to countries around the globe, is dedicated to the destruction of the state of Israel, the killing of all its Jewish citizens, and the establishment of a Palestinian state "from the river to the sea", - a slogan which implies the eradication of the entire Jewish state.

"The antisemitic hate that the Jewish community has felt brewing for years has found its way to the surface and is proudly displayed, along with posters and placards of Khomeini and Hamas - both of whom have sworn to destroy Israel and Jews - on the steps of Ontario's provincial legislature," said FSWC President and CEO Avi Benlolo. "That Holocaust survivors who experienced the horrors of Nazi efforts to exterminate the Jewish people should now see the same level of hatred directed against Canada's Jewish community on the grounds of our provincial government is horrible and shameful. The time has long passed for authorities to act on the hate directed at Canadian Jews by supporters of a radical Islamist ideology that is fundamentally opposed to our values of freedom and democracy."

-- Avi Benlolo is available for feature interviews on the subject. Having just led a mission to Auschwitz and Majdanek death camps with Canadian officials and having participated in a high level meeting with French President Francois Hollande on the subject of Antisemitism and Islamic Terror, Mr. Benlolo can provide a 360 degree overview on global antisemitism.

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. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
