BISMARCK, N.D., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Earth-Kind, Inc. announced the introduction of Stay Away® to its product lineup, the first natural pest prevention line made solely out of essential oils and plant fibers, all grown on American family farms. The earthkind® patented pouch design delivers a long-lasting, slow release of specially-blended essential oils, reliably keeping ants, spiders, moths and rodents out of treated areas for up to three months.
Ninety percent of $2 billion in pest control products sold by US retailers are made up of poisons and traps according to global market research firm, Mintel. In contrast, according to a 2013 Harris Poll, eight out of 10 consumers would prefer a natural humane solution. Considering that keeping pests out of the home using reactive remedies is a never-ending battle that does nothing to actually prevent the problem, earthkind's® products satisfy the dual need for proactive solutions that are also non-toxic.
Kari Warberg Block, CEO of Earth-Kind, Inc. says, "It never made sense to me to stomp on a spider, blow up an ant hill or kill a mouse simply because they were near my personal space. As the daughter of an entomologist, and a mom, I envisioned a better way to keep pests away from the spaces where we live, work and play and be sustainable while doing it. This natural preventive solution, the first of its kind, is one that is not just proactive, but highly effective."
earthkind's® Stay Away® line is made specifically for the home and available in Stay Away® Ants, Stay Away® Moths, Stay Away® Spiders and Stay Away® Botanical Rodent Repellent. It uses no toxic chemicals or killing. The company also manufactures Fresh Cab® Rodent Repellent, a safe and effective way to rid your home, garden sheds and property of rodents. Most importantly, earthkind® products are safe around children, pets and livestock.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
