LeafFilter North, Inc. Prepares to Present at 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show

LeafFilter Gutter Protection Offers Best Savings of the Year in Anticipation of 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LeafFilter™ Gutter Protection is excited to be a contributing sponsor at the upcoming Philadelphia Flower Show – the nation's largest and longest-running flower show. Homeowners are encouraged to take advantage of LeafFilter's biggest savings of 2013 while celebrating the Philadelphia Flower Show with this pre-event offer.

The 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show, themed 'Brilliant!,' is inspired by centuries of majestic beauty and creative genius from Great Britain. Homeowners from the region are encouraged to visit the Pennsylvania Convention Center from March 2nd through the 10th to experience presentations from British experts and designers, including Mark Lane, Gardens Manager at Buckingham Palace.

"This will be a Flower Show that celebrates Britain's amazing landscapes and cultural icons, as well as the city that has become the design capital of the world," explained Drew Becher, President of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. "It will also lift up the British passion for gardening, which has contributed so much to the appreciation of horticulture and its role in our lives."

LeafFilter™ is offering homeowners the best savings of the year with this one-time, pre-show offer. This is LeafFilter's single largest coupon savings of the year, as the gutter guard company is celebrating sponsorship of the Philadelphia Flower Show, which is the longest-running flower show in the world.

LeafFilter™ Gutter Guard representatives will have a booth set up to answer any questions patrons might have. There will also be LeafFilter™ Gutter Guard demonstrations throughout the day, giving patrons an idea of life without clogged gutters. The LeafFilter™ representatives will exhibit the nation's No.1 rated gutter protection and its ability to help keep gutters clog free. With LeafFilter™, nothing but water gets into your gutters. No leaves, no pine needles, no maple spinners, no shingle grit – absolutely nothing but water will get into a LeafFilter™ protected gutter.

The 'Brilliant!' themed 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show is the nation's largest indoor flower show and will also feature the country's premier landscape designers and florists, who all work together to turn 10 acres of the Pennsylvania Convention Center into an overwhelming display of floral magnificence.

In addition to the major garden displays, the 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show will host world-renowned competitions in horticulture and artistic floral arranging, hundreds of gardening presentations and demonstrations, special events, a mammoth indoor Marketplace, and a city-wide Flower show Week celebration throughout the Philadelphia region.

The 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show will introduce an exciting variety of new features in 2013. Not only is the show opening for the first time ever on a Saturday, but the festivities will also run for two full weekends in March – perfect timing before homeowners tackle the spring home improvement projects. The colorful 'New Plant Showcase' will introduce recently developed varieties of flowers and plants by internationally acclaimed growers.

Philadelphia flower show patrons will also have the opportunity to enjoy brand new 'Make & Take' workshops that will offer opportunities for visitors to design, craft and take home their creative projects. The most exciting addition for the guys will be 'The Backyard,' a room devoted to outdoor living, featuring decks and patios, grills and fire pits, new garden tools and techniques.

Homeowners looking to avoid the hassle of clogged gutters are encouraged take advantage of the Pre-Event $300 off coupon – LeafFilter's biggest savings of the year. Once homeowners have the coupon downloaded, the free, no-obligation estimate must be completed before March 31, 2013 to save the $300.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

SYS-CON Events announced today that Vitria Technology, Inc. will exhibit at SYS-CON’s @ThingsExpo, which will take place on June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. Vitria will showcase the company’s new IoT Analytics Platform through live demonstrations at booth #330. Vitria’s IoT Analytics Platform, fully integrated and powered by an operational intelligence engine, enables customers to rapidly build and operationalize advanced analytics to deliver timely business outcomes for use cases across the industrial, enterprise, and consumer segments.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze rea...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more.

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
