32 Emmy-Nominated TV Shows Receive Made-In-Hollywood Honors As State Legislature Considers Passage Of Bill To Increase Film Tax Incentives

EVENT AT 1600 VINE SALUTES LOCALLY-MADE NOMININATED PRODUCT TO SHOW-CASE EXCELLENCE OF FILM CAPITAL WORK

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- At the second annual Made-In-Hollywood Honors celebration of locally created shows that made it to Emmy nomination, thirty-two programs received MIHH accolades, Thursday (Aug. 7) morning.  The tributes were presented at 1600 VINE, the luxury apartment complex which sponsored the honors program, along with the Los Angeles City Council, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, and for the first year, the California Film Commission and FilmL.A. Inc., the state, county and city agencies seeking to return film and television production to the place it started, Hollywood.

Such top TV fare as "Mad Men," "The Big Bang Theory," "Modern Family," "Top Chef" and "Dancing With The Stars" were among acknowledged shows, and the event was filled with passionate calls from the attending public officials and recipients for the California Legislature to pass the upcoming bill, AB 1839, which would create tax incentives at least matching that of those now offered by the state of New York to lure projects which otherwise might well have chosen to "stay home," as Councilman Tom LaBonge stated.  Even with a vastly reduced number of productions that resisted the siren call of other states' and countries' tax rebates, the MIHH honoree list showed that much of the top talent has stayed in Hollywood.

That local achievement, reflected in the MIHH recipients list included three Outstanding Comedy Series shows nominated for Emmys, "Big Bang Theory," "Modern Family" and "Silicon Valley,"  as well as four of the Outstanding Reality-Competition Programs, "Dancing With The Stars," "So You Think You Can Dance," "The Voice" and "Top Chef."  Two of the Outstanding Variety Series, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Real Time With Bill Maher" had Hollywood pedigrees, as did three of the Outstanding Children's Programs, "Dog With A Blog," "Good Luck Charlie" and "One Last Hug: Three Days at Camp Grief."  Four of the Outstanding Animated Programs, "Bob's Burgers," "Futurama," "South Park," and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Manhattan Project," and three of the Outstanding Short-Format Live Entertainment Programs, "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifinakis" and "The Soup: True Detective," were Hollywood created. Other TV favorites honored were "Jay Leno's Garage" and "The Writer's Room."

The event's host, three-time Oscar nominee and Golden Globes winner Dyan Cannon, stated, "Come on, Assembly and Senate, defend your industry that has brought so much money and a glamorous image to this beautiful state."  Other speakers included Los Angeles City Councilmen Mitch O'Farrell and Tom LaBonge, who presented the City Council proclamations as well as Eve Honthaner, Deputy Director of the California Film Commission, which administers the state's film and TV tax credit program and works to increase motion picture production throughout California; Paul Audley, president of FilmL.A, the official film office of the City and County of Los Angeles, and Leron Gubler,  president of  the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. Sponsors of the MIHH announcement event included Klein Financial Corporation and Icelandic Glacial.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.
