DR. RAMONA FRISCHMAN
Dr. Ramona Frischman Bridges the Generational Gap

Intergenerational programming is uniting America due to the efforts of Dr. Ramona Frischman. A retired project manager for Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Dr. Frischman continues to focus on developing intergenerational learning programs, which aim to improve the lives of children, youth, and older people through intergenerational strategies, programs, and public policies with the goal of establishing a mutually supportive agenda. Dr. Frischman is dedicated to supporting the growth of intergenerational programming and works as a liaison by consulting and writing grants to facilitate the success of each partnership. Dr. Frischman views intergenerational programming as a resource for policymakers and the public on the economic, social, and personal imperatives that govern our society. Her determination to bridge the generational gap has provided countless individuals of all ages with the opportunity to explore areas of common ground while celebrating each other's diversity.

Built upon the principles which guide its mission, the practice of intergenerational cooperation unites and improves our communities, stimulates economic growth, preserves resources and erodes discriminatory thoughts. In tackling common issues together, children, youth and older people learn to appreciate and respect each other's perspectives, while considering a broad spectrum of ideas in forming a solution. Since becoming involved with intergenerational programming, Dr. Frischman has witnessed the positive impact it has on the lives of students who participate in the program, many of whom have altered their career goals as a result of their experience. What's more, older individuals continually express having experienced equal inspiration. This consistent outcome drives Dr.  Frischman's passion for promoting intergenerational programming and leaves her feeling incredibly satisfied with her work.

Dr. Frischman's programs for Miami-Dade County Public Schools, the fourth-largest school district in the country, were recognized nationally as models to emulate. This recognition generated funding and forged partnerships that elevated the scope of achievement and expanded opportunities, both for the students and for the district. Although Dr. Frischman has retired from the school system, she continues to foster intergenerational advocacy initiatives by volunteering with agencies such as the Gray Panthers, Retired Educators and the local Alliance for Aging.

Dr. Frischman earned a Doctor of Education from Nova Southeastern University, having received a Master of Education (Reading) from the University of Georgia and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Stetson University. She is a member of the Executive Board of Directors of the Gray Panthers of South Dade and the Dade County Retired Educators Association, where she served as the second vice president. Among her many awards and recognitions are an Outstanding Community Volunteer Award, earned in 2008, a Hero Award presented to her by the Miami Police Department in 2001, and a Regional Commissioner's Meritorious Service Award, which she also received in 2001. In 1992, she was awarded the 756th Daily Point of Light Award by President George H. W. Bush.

RHONDA KNUTSON
Inspirational Author Empowers Victims of Abuse with Powerful Story of Survival

Free your soul! Rhonda B. Knutson, author of Escape from Hell: A Woman's Story, has blazed a path of hope for all those who struggle to navigate through the darkness of adversity. Her uplifting novel takes the reader on an emotional journey—traversing the depths of despair, the plateaus of forgiveness and the summits of glory. Having been rescued from a tortuous childhood, Ms. Knutson developed a burning desire to help others, a flame that still burns bright today.

Although at times lonely, Ms. Knutson was never alone. The strength she found in God guided her in her healing, and remains her eternal beacon of hope. She is optimistic that by sharing her wisdom with others who have suffered abuse, she can offer them the tools to find their own guiding light, buried deep within them. Ms. Knutson believes that her connection with God empowered her to rise above her own emotional turmoil and liberated her to embrace life and all the good it has to offer.

The publication of Escape from Hell: A Woman's Story is a triumphant achievement! By writing it, Ms. Knutson has taken ownership of the abuse she endured and has used it to inspire others. She has given meaning to her life and shown bravery in doing so. The recipient of numerous awards, including the Senior Hero Award, Ms. Knutson has also carried the Olympic Torch in Spokane, Washington. She is a retired swimming and physical education coach who currently balances her time as an exercise instructor, a motivational speaker and a writer. Presently, she is working on two additional books: Shadows of Corruption and Coast to Coast on a Piece of Toast.

Rhonda Knutson donates a large portion of the book sales from Escape from Hell: A Woman's Story to help children and young families in need.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

The Internet of Things needs an entirely new security model, or does it? Can we save some old and tested controls for the latest emerging and different technology environments? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, will review hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal privacy options and a new risk balance you might not expect.
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
