This year’s South by Southwest festival promised bigger crowds, bigger performances, huge headlining speakers - like First Lady Michelle Obama and lastly, an introduction to the next wave of dazzling technology.
As droves of people descended upon the 29th annual SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, they were expecting to see the next big thing in cinema, music and technology.
At this year’s SXSW, Not Impossible Labs introduced a digital solution designed to assist those unable to speak. Architected by Eberling and computer software designer Javed Gangjee, they were able to design a technology that can take a person completely unfamiliar with computer technology and transform them into to a person capable of typing two-and-a-half words per minute or more.
As in years past, this year’s SXSW did not go without its dissenters and naysayers that shouted about technology becoming too overwhelming and too large. What’s great about this type of technology is that as it emerges and companies like McDonalds, Gatorade or Gillette convert them into incredible interactive marketing, it also allows for the technology to become mainstream, making it easier to get access to. And I’d be remise not to mention that this type of technology is already being used for good. In 1842, a young woman by the name of Ada Lovelace, a British mathematician and daughter of Lord Byron, wrote what is considered to be the first computer program. In simplest terms, it was the birth of the stepwise sequence of operations for solving certain mathematical problems and in conjunction with Charles Babbage, a path was written for the first executable computer program algorithm. On Monday, we posted Fast Five Facts about Public, Private, Hybrid cloud platforms that list the benefits of each. The customer approached VAZATA with clear motivation to use hybrid cloud services and a need to divide the two applications between a private cloud services for the Accounting piece and a public cloud SaaS environment for the email -  by diversifying, it resulted in significant cost savings for the customer.
This same scenario is happening more and more frequently as hybrid cloud becomes a more popular option and it’s pretty safe to say that the operations team here at VAZATA would agree. If anything, you should revaluate whether you can diversify your service providers like this company. To avoid confusion we provided some differentiators between public, private and hybrid cloud services.
All this talk about the Cloud probably has your head spinning because of how different it is from one minute to the next. When you’ve ensured that you have quick backup after those chaotic 30 days, your disaster recovery kicks in and you, as a medical institution, financial bank or the lady on the corner selling yarn for a living, fire it back up to get back to business.
95% of businesses experienced outages for reasons unrelated to natural disasters (ZOMBIES!) DRaaS provides protection that matches that of a large corporation. Studies show that at least 82% of enterprises had a hybrid cloud strategy, up from 74% recorded in 2014 and the numbers that are trickling in for 2015 are pretty phenomenal too. Back in 2010, the Whitehouse stepped in and introduced a new policy around IT reform, putting parameters around emerging CSPs, specifically the ones that wanted to do business with a Federal Agency or the Federal Government. VAZATA recently had the distinction of receiving Federal Risk Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP?) authorization for Managed Cloud Services after committing to a process that took a little over five years to complete; with that VAZATA was named the 21st company to reach that achievement. Government agency or not, you can take advantage of where you store your mission critical data. We’ve recently made an announcement about the milestone to shed light around our Virtual Federal Image (VFI) platform and its benefits, including the common tools, processes, and ease of provisioning, all while affording agencies a level of security that is not normally available in existing public cloud environments.
VAZATA is a managed hosting, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and cloud managed service provider serving Global 1000 businesses, U.S. Back in 2010, the Whitehouse stepped in and introduced a new policy around IT reform putting parameters around emerging CSPs, specifically the ones that wanted to do business with a Federal Agency or the Federal Government.
FedRAMP is the result of close collaboration with cybersecurity and cloud experts from the General Services Administration (GSA), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Defense (DOD), National Security Agency (NSA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Federal Chief Information Officer (CIO) Council and its working groups, as well as private industry. The Internet of Everything (IoE) or Internet of Things (IoT)  is the network of physical objects, devices, vehicles, buildings and other items with sensors and network connectivity that exchange data. Internet of Things (IoT) or Internet of Everything (IoE) is the quiet communication that is happening all the time. What I found to be the most intriguing was that some of the technology showcased was eerily familiar. At $4,000, this thing better spin records and do my taxes at the same time but to some, $4K for a turntable is an absolute prize. All in all, this camera is cool, I’d consider buying it at its $400 - $700 price point. Imagine this, you’re introduced to someone and you have a reaction that spikes your adrenaline. The dress is comprised of dozens of Curie computing modules that tell the dress when to expand.
Has there ever been a time in your life when facing a serious problem, that God profoundly moved - beyond any human ability, to give a positive outcome? Goda€™s ability goes beyond overwhelming problems with solutions, which cannot often be explained and outcomes in ways that are seldom expected. We live in a day when many of our movies and media depict super people overcoming impossible odds with a display of supernatural power. Today we are looking at Three Unexpected and Overwhelming Problems illustrated in 2 Kings, chapters 6 and 7, with unanticipated supernatural conclusions.
16 In the thirty-sixth year of the reign of Asa, Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah and built Ramah, that he might permit no one to go out or come in to Asa king of Judah. 7 At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him, a€?Because you relied on the king of Syria, and did not rely on the Lord your God, the army of the king of Syria has escaped you. Fathers, we need to be discerning not to follow the directions of our own solutions, leaving God out of the equation. 2 Kings 6: 1 The company of the prophets said to Elisha, a€?Look, the place where we meet with you is too small for us. 6 The man of God asked, a€?Where did it fall?a€? When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float. Fathera€™s today can face a huge dilemma when critical things happen at work threatening his livelihood: if they lose their job, or a serious accident happens, etc. A father has been given, by God, the position of leadership in his own home, and can often hold variable positions of authority in his workplace or community.
2 Kings 6:15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. 17 And Elisha prayed, a€?O Lord, open his eyes so he may see.a€? Then the Lord opened the servanta€™s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, a€?Strike these people with blindness.a€? So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked. 20 After they entered the city, Elisha said, a€?Lord, open the eyes of these men so they can see.a€? Then the Lord opened their eyes and they looked, and there they were, inside Samaria. May the Godly fathera€™s eyes be opened to see more than the world could ever seea€¦ that which God can clearly see!
Some problems become so serious that there is no other alternative for survival than a direct intervention by God.
2 Kings 6:24 Some time later, Ben-Hadad king of Aram mobilized his entire army and marched up and laid siege to Samaria.
She answered, a€?This woman said to me, a€?Give up your son so we may eat him today, and tomorrow wea€™ll eat my son.a€™ 29 So we cooked my son and ate him. 6 for the Lord had caused the Arameans to hear the sound of chariots and horses and a great army, so that they said to one another, a€?Look, the king of Israel has hired the Hittite and Egyptian kings to attack us!a€? 7 So they got up and fled in the dusk and abandoned their tents and their horses and donkeys.
10 So they went and called out to the city gatekeepers and told them, a€?We went into the Aramean camp and not a man was therea€”not a sound of anyonea€”only tethered horses and donkeys, and the tents left just as they were.a€? 11 The gatekeepers shouted the news, and it was reported within the palace. 12 The king got up in the night and said to his officers, a€?I will tell you what the Arameans have done to us.
13 One of his officers answered, a€?Have some men take five of the horses that are left in the city.
14 So they selected two chariots with their horses, and the king sent them after the Aramean army. 17 Now the king had put the officer on whose arm he leaned in charge of the gate, and the people trampled him in the gateway, and he died, just as the man of God had foretold when the king came down to his house.
19 The officer had said to the man of God, a€?Look, even if the Lord should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?a€? The man of God had replied, a€?You will see it with your own eyes, but you will not eat any of it!a€? 20 And that is exactly what happened to him, for the people trampled him in the gateway, and he died.


When fathers are faced with the serious times of unprovoked loss a€“ at work, at home, or abroad.
Through Overwhelming Problems of fathers Facing Mortal Danger which can never be resolved without the supernatural intervention of God!
Although we as fathers are most often inclined to a€?figure out the answera€? to a problem on our own a€“ relying only on our own resources, may we continually seek discernment from our Heavenly Father.
With the start of the new-year, there always seem to be several articles that come out promoting guns as part of a preparedness solution. Sadly, thanks largely to movies and bloggers with little or no a€?reala€™ long-term survival experience, far too much emphasis is placed on owning battle rifles as a primary part of survival or Prepper equipment.
First of all, survival and disaster preparedness really have nothing to do with a€?battle riflesa€™ or assault weapons as they are sometimes called (AR-15, AK-47, etc.). And unlike so many other countries, our right to own these and other firearms is protected by our U.S.
At the risk of digressing a bit further, there is another important point that I would like to make: Guns do not kill people, no more so than a€?spoons making people fata€™. If you are considering a firearm for personal defense, and you can lawfully carry a firearm in your intended jurisdiction (you may need to acquire a permit), then by all means get the training and ask a qualified firearms instructor to provide you with advice on getting equipped with a firearm that will properly suit you (easy to carry, fit your hand properly, etc.). All of that said, when it comes to survival and disaster preparedness, most firearms, especially battle rifles, have very little utility compared to other life-supporting equipment and supplies that pound for pound have much more utility than any battle rifle made.
For those readers who feel they must have a firearm, dona€™t freak-out just yet, a little further into this article I will be discussing the one type of rifle I feel makes sense if you must have a firearm. People who are considering survival and disaster preparedness from a serious standpoint dona€™t start their planning by setting themselves up for being caught in the middle of a riot or a post-disaster thousand-man fire-fight over resources. Surviving the violence of a post-disaster scenario is not a function of firepower (unless you are a part of a regiment of U.S.
Leta€™s be clear here: this is not a discussion about a few days or a week-long hunting or hiking expedition, although these endeavors can provide the basis for very short-term immersion into what survival is about.
The highest priority in survival is; placing yourself in the best possible location with all of your survival gear as soon as possible. If your safety is compromised by being in the wrong location (too close or at ground zero) from the onset of a disaster and ensuing civil unrest, then youa€™ll find yourself in the unenviable situation of trying to make it to safety (targets in the middle of thousand-man cross-fire). The logic of remaining in a bad location and attempting to improve the odds of survival through the use of lots of firearms and ammo is simply an obtuse strategy, especially if you have the opportunity to improve your odds for survival by relocating before any problems materialize.
If you arena€™t already living off-grid, then mobility during and post-event is critical and is a function of weight: Ita€™s not wise to assume your bug-out vehicle will be useful.
Most average Americans are lucky if they can run a A? mile with 25 pounds on their back before they are ready to blow a gasket!
So, as we see, the total weight of your bug-out gear is really important, especially if youa€™re on foot. Another good light-weight take-down .22 caliber rifle is the Marlin model 70PSS (a€?Papoosea€™). The problem most Preppers face is that they are strapped with the task of trying to figure out who to listen-to when it comes to preps. However, the training and tactics for battle which are orchestrated around a huge logistics effort in support of the battle are not appropriately designed for survival and disaster preparedness.
And if youa€™re an average American (physically) like most of us are, then we are likely talking about a 25-50 pound pack depending on the individual. When it comes to survival and disaster preparedness; water, food and survival gear need to make-up the majority of the load in your pack.

Those in remote areas for a number of reasons have become isolated and cut off from needed supplies. As the article says it is about getting away from the problem area but to go further it is also about either being totally self supporting, which is hard to do. What is interesting is that refuges that have trailers and mobile home have an advantage in some cases in fleeing. The 440-page handbook is a complete guide to creating a practical disaster preparedness plan. Discover why this handbook is being praised by emergency management experts, preppers, church groups, survivalists, bloggers, soccer moms, and people from every walk of life. Also, if interested in an exciting post-apocalyptic series that follows a US Marshal after a global pandemic, check out The Survivalist (Frontier Justice). Adventurous children can experience life as a desert island castaway without ever leaving home.
The program gave Don Moir his voice back and even more remarkable, he gained independence back as well. A children’s hospital in Atlanta is looking at VR as a means to immerse their patients into a completely different environment while undergoing chemotherapy treatments. They had assets that required certain levels of compliance, while pieces of their environment that did not. Knowing which one is best for your company can be a challenge so here’s some fast facts about each. In the movie World War Z starring Brad Pitt, they still had power, running water and some sense of order, so I’m going to start there. I get that DRaaS might seem a little extreme if you feel like you may not want to replicate your data in case zombies come crashing into your office. To prepare for a zombie attack (or maybe an earthquake, whichever comes first), we know we have to have a continual plan to replicate your physical or virtual servers through a third-party as a fail-safe way to protect yourself from a man-made or natural catastrophe.
If you’re an SMB, DRaaS is not something strictly related to businesses with large volumes of data. With such a high level of utilization, the landscape can get crowded and regulation for public and private sectors can shift and change rapidly, making it feel like the Wild West. Our FedRAMP security authorization is the highest level of security attainable and with an intense audit performed every 30-days so you know your data is fully protected. It’s estimated that this last year, a total spend of $235 billion was supported by IoT. In fact, I wonder what some of this stuff is even doing there since some were introduced back in the 1930’s.
The electronic motor has been replaced with a wireless one to eliminate vibrations and deliver clearer audio. Let me begin with, the first Super 8 camera was introduced in 1965; 51 years later, here it is again. But throw in physical Super 8 film cartridges, and you might find me wondering why I didn’t leave it to the experts.
The workloads vary, the sensitivity varies, and the need for public and private cloud vary. 2 Then Asa took silver and gold from the treasures of the house of the Lord and the kinga€™s house and sent them to Ben-hadad king of Syria, who lived in Damascus, saying, 3 a€?There is a covenant between me and you, as there was between my father and your father. 8 Were not the Ethiopians and the Libyans a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen?
Follow me, and I will lead you to the man you are looking for.a€? And he led them to Samaria. 25 There was a great famine in the city; the siege lasted so long that a donkeya€™s head sold for eighty shekels of silver, and a quarter of a cab of seed pods (or dovea€™s dung - ESV) for five shekels.
As he went along the wall, the people looked, and there, underneath, he had sackcloth on his body. The king sent a messenger ahead, but before he arrived, Elisha said to the elders, a€?Dona€™t you see how this murderer is sending someone to cut off my head? Their plight will be like that of all the Israelites left herea€”yes, they will only be like all these Israelites who are doomed. He commanded the drivers, a€?Go and find out what has happened.a€? 15 They followed them as far as the Jordan, and they found the whole road strewn with the clothing and equipment the Arameans had thrown away in their headlong flight.
And ita€™s an unfortunate fact that firearms have become almost synonymous with Preppers and disaster preparedness.


Having owned and sold many of these guns, as well as many other battle rifles in a past life as a licensed Federal Firearms Dealer, I have to confess that they are fun to shoot and have a certain appeal as collectable representative weapons of many past and current military engagements. Constitution, although some states and local jurisdictions have been trying to make the ownership of battle rifles illegal. First off, in actual battle, when it comes to firearms used to dispatch an enemy combatant, the vast majority of kills are made with rifles, not pistols. And it doesna€™t matter what guns you have, how good a shot you are, or how many people you have in your Prepper group, in a scenario such as that your odds of getting dead or seriously injured are really good! Marines, even then good Marines die), it is however a function of already being in the right geographic location when the disaster or unrest begins.
When youa€™re looking at survival for many weeks and possibly many months (years?) the equipment complement that youa€™ll need varies greatly from the gear that worked for planned short-term outings. Ideally, being in that location at the onset of a disaster or major civil unrest is optimal.
The use of a work-around that attempts to make-up for bad planning, strategies and tactics are the hallmarks of inadequate commitment and the lack of experience. People do crazy things when the going gets tougha€¦ look at the example of the life guard who swims to the rescue of the downing man only to be pulled-under and drowned himself by the non-thinking desperations of the victim. Things happen; it can be commandeered, damaged during riots, burned, blocked-in by other stalled vehicles, rendered useless by EMP, etca€¦ then youa€™re on foot. I am not going to go into all the stuff that should be in a long-term survival pack; this article is about firearms.
Who in their right mind wants all or most of that weight committed to a single gun and ammo?
The 3rd Edition has been expanded to cover every important topic, including food storage, water purification, home improvements, electricity generation, backup heating, personal protection, financial preparations, communication systems, disaster preparedness networks, evacuations, life-saving first aid, and much more.
Now is the time to take responsibility for your family’s safety by putting into place important emergency preparations.
You could decorate the place with colorful balloons, paint brushes and whatever doodle you thought would be cool and then walk away with a printed copy of your masterpiece!
But remember, you want to pick up where life left off before you ran away from your sleepwalking neighbor. From the security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring, it’s an intense audit all around. The company provides highly secure, stable, and scalable technology solutions that meet the challenges of its global customers using a proprietary cloud architecture called vStructure™.
Another one was Google Glass - people have actually coined the term Glasshole because of them, yikes!
Physically, there’s a 10-mm thick aluminum top panel and an aluminum tonearm, making the turntable look sturdier, sleeker and more contemporary. The device offers a digital LCD flip-out panel as a viewfinder, integrated microphone and the capability of shooting at 9, 12, 18, 24 and 25 frames per second.
In its most refined definition, hybrid cloud is a cloud computing environment which uses a mix of on premise and third-party, public cloud services with communication between the two platforms. Set food and water before them so that they may eat and drink and then go back to their master.a€? 23 So he prepared a great feast for them, and after they had finished eating and drinking, he sent them away, and they returned to their master. And ita€™s my personal opinion that law-abiding American citizens have the right under the U.S. And if someone wants to kill, and a gun isna€™t available, police records show that knives, blunt instruments and other items combined kill many more people than do guns! And secondly, when it comes to survival, a pistol is not good for acquiring game animals due to the very short sighting radius leading to poor accuracy at any relevant hunting range (distance), plus a very limited effective range.
In terms of survival in the woods or mountains, location is of equal paramount importance; the right location can mean difference between survival and death in a long term situation. And as we have all seen on the news, things dona€™t even need to be that desperate before people act insanely; look at all the people who have been trampled to death or crushed at the door of a variety store when there is a sale!
Both of the foregoing rifles are semi-automatic; the Ruger holds 10 rounds in the magazine and the Marlin holds 7. In other cases, we have returning hero-soldiers, and their take on prepping usually involves military solutions. However, most people have to become very uncomfortable before that make any major decision like that. It all starts with developing a practical disaster preparedness plan for your family. The Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness is the only book that provides step-by-step instructions for developing that plan. An entire chapter is also provided for people with special needs, including the elderly, those with young children, people with disabilities, and pet owners. Because sedatives aren’t as necessary for the patient, the physiology and psychology associated with it has been measured with overwhelming positivity. It wasn’t until I sat to rewatch all of the Star Wars movies before going to see Force Awakens that I saw it.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is ushering in a new world that will change the way we live, work, buy, travel, communicate and so much more and without cloud-based applications none of it would be possible. The camera will come built with a specific lens, but because it has a C-mount available, it will thus be compatible with ridiculous range of other lenses. Go, break your covenant with Baasha king of Israel, that he may withdraw from me.a€? 4 And Ben-hadad listened to King Asa and sent the commanders of his armies against the cities of Israel, and they conquered Ijon, Dan, Abel-maim, and all the store cities of Naphtali.
9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him.
And when law-abiding citizens are deprived of their lawful possession of firearms, then, only criminals will have guns (and all the other weapons), and isna€™t that a comforting thought?
Whata€™s on your back is all you have for the foreseeable future, which could be months or more, so it better be the right mix of gear and supplies. As the article says when the going gets ruff the smart ones get going the hell out of there to greener pastures. Doctors are hopeful they can incorporate this technology in other aspects of medicine like surgery. It was in Star Wars, Episode IV (Remastered) that I almost came out of my seat, I couldn’t believe it - Jabba the Hutt looked like a CGI nightmare! Plain and simple, if your device can communicate in any way to the Internet, the Internet will talk back. So a seah (5 quarts) of flour sold for a shekel, and two seahs (10 quarts) of barley sold for a shekel, as the Lord had said. My father served with the LAPD after WWII, and he was accurate when he said; a€?the police are not the personal body guards of citizens, you have to be able to protect yourselfa€?.
It will be some kind of collapse or other disaster, in which we have to fend for ourselves. This has been repeated many times when Americans lost homes and jobs but were able to keep a mobile home, or trailer and something to tow it. That’s what the cloud is offering - the ability to maintain business development awareness, customer engagement and real time market analytics.
6 Then King Asa took all Judah, and they carried away the stones of Ramah and its timber, with which Baasha had been building, and with them he built Geba and Mizpah.
In the next few years, we’ll see an abundance of cloud based applications that will take data and make it transformative, funneling it into your sales engines, models and forecasts to feed the funnel. Your next steps should be an evaluation of whether your business can leverage the Internet of Things, how to ensure your infrastructure is ready for a cloud led industry and finally how make sure it’s safe, reliable and disaster proof. The new world of technology is coming your way and will shape many cloud-based applications, be selective of how you decide to leverage customer data and shape the way you do business to be smarter, more instinctual and agile.
