Earth911.Org Introduces New Global Warming Web Resource

Newly Launched Section Builds on National Effort to Raise Awareness About Impact of Global Warming; Recognized as Valuable Publ

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/06/06 -- Responding to increased awareness and the need for greater public resources dedicated to addressing the global warming trends, Earth 911 -- part of the Global Alerts' cause media network, and the nation's portal for environmental action and information -- has launched a new section dedicated exclusively to Global Warming. Visitors to Earth911.org will now have access to comprehensive educational and actionable information designed to help them better understand what global warming is, and what efforts they can take to help combat its devastating effects.

"Global Warming affects us all. Earth 911 has always been designed and committed to creating a network accessible by individuals, communities and organizations for the latest information on local and national environmental issues and resources," said Jeffrey Rassás, President and CEO of Global Alerts. "Our new section dedicated to Global Warming is a natural extension of our larger vision -- to provide resources that empower individuals, communities and corporations to make a difference."

The Earth 911 Global Warming resource page includes background on what causes Global Warming, and an overview of the effects -- including links to heat and sun index safety, weather details, and world data. Information on what national and international organizations and agencies are doing to address Global Warming issues is also available. Visitors can learn more about programs and other organizations dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, or access information on U.S. Climate Policy and Actions.

Understanding Individual Impact

Did You Know? According to the U.S. EPA, individuals can impact nearly 32% of the total emissions per person by the choices made in only three areas. By visiting Earth911.org, visitors can learn how they can make the most impact in reducing carbon emissions through educated choices about the electricity used in their homes, the waste they produce, and the transportation they choose to use.

Since launching in 1991, Earth 911.org has been recognized throughout the industry with numerous awards, including the Al Gore Hammer Award and the National Information Infrastructure Award for Recycling.

"We hope that as the Earth 911 portal continues to expand, it will increasingly become a place people turn to help stay informed about environmental issues, and share knowledge with others to enable all to act now and make a difference," concluded Rassás.

Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage. Hybrid cloud depends on cloud services and on-premises infrastructure working in unison. Successful implementations require new levels of data mobility, enabled by an automated and seamless flow across on-premises and cloud resources. In his general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Greg Tevis, an IBM Storage Software Technical Strategist and Customer Solution Architec...
Coca-Cola’s Google powered digital signage system lays the groundwork for a more valuable connection between Coke and its customers. Digital signs pair software with high-resolution displays so that a message can be changed instantly based on what the operator wants to communicate or sell.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan. It must do so by realizing that we now live in a data-driven age, and that technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, the IoT, Cognitive Computing, and Blockchain are only tools. In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform.

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
