ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/02/14 -- Birth Choice Health Clinics -- a California-based network of medically licensed, life-affirming health clinics offering free community health care and patient education programs -- today announced the receipt of a third donation installment from Orange County couple and long-time Birth Choice supporters, Lynne and Dennis Jilot. In 2012, the Jilots committed to a $1 million contribution to Birth Choice that will be donated over the course of four years until their final installment in 2015.
Though the Jilots had been long-time supporters of Birth Choice and regular donors, they recognized the organization's need for a more reliable and consistent source of funding. Thus, providing the organization with long-term financial security seemed the most certain solution to ensure the sustainability of Birth Choice's mission, along with the longevity of its patient services and day-to-day operations.
"As a Birth Choice board member, my husband and I see the earnest commitment to life-affirming health care and ministry vision from the entire Birth Choice team," says Lynne Jilot. "It is an honor and privilege to play a part in assuring the doors to Birth Choice clinics will always remain open to those throughout the community in need of resources and compassion."
"The Birth Choice organization is incredibly thankful for the generous and steadfast financial support provided by Lynne and Dennis Jilot," says Kathleen Eaton Bravo, founder and CEO of Birth Choice Health Clinics. "Their generosity has sustained our organizational operations, and allowed our dedicated medical teams and volunteers to continue providing necessary sexual health services and life-affirming care to those who need them most."
Now, as Birth Choice is poised to launch its much-anticipated California Initiative -- to unify health clinics across California under one new brand with a resounding message of compassionate, life-affirming values -- commitments like that of the Jilot family are what will carry Birth Choice from the visualization of how sexual health care should be, to an accomplished reality. With this expansion, Birth Choice hopes to spread its proven, long-term business model for providing community healthcare across California and, eventually, nationwide.

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.

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...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
