Tender Corporation: Make Holiday Memories With Your Loved Ones, Not Emergency Room Doctors

LITTLETON, N.H., Nov. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The holidays are a time to share joy with our friends, families and communities. They are also a time of great hustle and bustle with millions of us converging upon malls, salons and boutiques. The excitements experienced during the holidays are second only to the great memories we create.

Family activities, such as cooking and decorating, are traditions that are generations strong. As families pass these customs to their newest members, there are some simple ways to keep everyone safe, ensuring the best memories are made each holiday season. From 2007 to 2010, holiday-related injuries treated in emergency rooms increased 30 percent, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. In fact, according to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, 17 children go to the ER for unintended injuries every minute.

The Tender Corporation has five tips for safety at home during the holidays:

Organize the space and things you will need (food and decorations) before beginning any project to cut down on spilling and stacking things dangerously.

Prep all the items you will be using. Check for decorations that can be choking hazards, wear or breaks on lights and cooking hazards, such as knives. Dangerous items should be separated from the area in which children will be playing.

First Aid area should be designated. Make sure first aid is readily accessible, such as a pack of Easy Access Bandages™ for minor cuts and a medical kit designed for the home, such as Easy Care™ First Aid. If you are cooking, After Burn™ instantly relieves minor burn pains.

Have a game-plan for the project and involve everyone. Make sure the kids are involved in plan decisions. Explain all the steps and dangerous items they are not to use, such as the stove and glue guns.

Work together on parts of projects that could present danger, such as whisking in a heavy bowl or working with scissors. Keep an eye out; ask what each child is doing and how they are doing. Follow up your questions with positive feedback whether or not children need correcting.

If a problem arises, having first aid right on hand is crucial. Easy Access Bandages™ and Easy Care™ First Aid kits are the fastest, most efficient way to treat injuries at home. This means you get back to having fun faster. The Easy Access Bandages™ pack, which fits in your pocket, unfolds into a fan of bandages. Pulling gently on the top of the wrapper easily releases a sterile bandage that is ready to be applied with one hand.

The Easy Access Bandages™ package at Walmart features 30 fabric bandages and sells for only $2.97. Each box contains two portable packs of 15 bandages that can be conveniently tucked in your pocket, handbag, briefcase, or first aid kit for quick and easy retrieval. The bandages are latex free and 1 inch by 3 inches in size.

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"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.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
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 ...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
