PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SCA, maker of the Tork® brand of Away-from-Home professional hygiene products in North America, is proud to announce an extension of its ongoing partnership with Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign.

Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE
To underscore its commitment to solving childhood hunger, SCA joins forces with corporations across the country to support the seventh-annual Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE (NYCWFF), as the official napkin of this year's Grand Tasting presented by ShopRite Featuring KitchenAid® Culinary Demonstrations presented by MasterCard®. The Festival brings together culinary icons and Food Network star chefs in an effort to raise awareness of the ongoing hunger crisis in the United States. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefit Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry and the Food Bank For New York City. Last year, NYCWFF hosted more than 55,000 guests at 130 events and has raised more than $7.5 million to date for these hunger-relief organizations.

As the official napkin supplier, SCA will provide custom printed Tork napkins, Tork Xpressnap Napkin Dispensers and the recently introduced Tork Foodservice Cleaning and Sanitizing Wet Wipes for all presenting exhibitors at the Grand Tasting event presented by ShopRite featuring KitchenAid® Culinary Demonstrations presented by MasterCard® as well as the Southern Wine & Spirits of New York Trade Tasting presented by Beverage Media Group. By using Tork's unique One Napkin, Every Time™ Xpressnap napkin dispensers at each sampling station throughout the weekend, attendees will use fewer napkins and reduce waste throughout the entire festival. 

"Eliminating childhood hunger is a cause both the public and the restaurant industry are passionate about," said Suzanne Cohen, foodservice marketing director with SCA's North American Away-From-Home Professional Hygiene business. "As part of our strong brand presence in restaurants and foodservice establishments across the US, we are proud to be able to continue our support of No Kid Hungry at such a large-scale event. We hope this event further spotlights the issue of childhood hunger and inspires action across the country to get involved with No Kid Hungry and its critical work."

Tork will bring to life No Kid Hungry's message by collecting "Autographs for Access" on Friday, October 17, during the Southern Wine & Spirits of New York Trade Tasting. For each attendee who signs their name on an Xpressnap napkin, Tork will donate $1 to No Kid Hungry, which can provide a child access to 10 nutritious meals. The autographs will be collected and displayed on cork sculptures at the Tork booth.

Smart Cities are here to stay, but for their promise to be delivered, the data they produce must not be put in new siloes. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mathias Herberts, Co-founder and CTO of Cityzen Data, discussed the best practices that will ensure a successful smart city journey.
WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

What are the key differences between wh...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
