Tribute to Dr. Steven Vladem:

Organ Transplant Pioneer Dr. Steven Vladem Honored on Genesis Global Radio

Genesis Global Radio will pay tribute to Dr. Steven Vladem for his devoted efforts in promoting global transplant awareness. A motivational speaker, executive producer and self-help author, Dr. Vladem died tragically this past September in a pedestrian accident. Though his passing was untimely, his legacy lives on. Dr. Vladem turned a devastating childhood illness into a lifelong quest to make transplant surgery available to all those who need it.  His dream has been realized through the Dr. Steven Vladem Memorial Fund, dedicated to the support of transplant research and advocacy and the continued empowerment of disabled individuals worldwide.

After a severe allergic reaction damaged his eye, Dr. Vladem became a two-time cornea transplant recipient, an experience which awakened him to the limitations in transplant availability and the struggles faced by those who need them.  His vision of bringing transplant awareness to the forefront of patient advocacy developed into a global motivational speaking campaign and led to the production of several documentary films. In recognition of his efforts, he has been honored with countless awards from prestigious organizations which include the Albert Schweitzer Institute, the London Diplomatic Academy and the International World Order of Science Education and Culture.

At the time of his death, Dr. Vladem was actively promoting the release of the film Perogi Blues, which he produced along with documentary filmmaker Phil Ranstrom.

In a heart-warming reflection on Dr. Vladem, Christine Larkin, Executive Producer of Genesis Global Media stated, "I had a brief professional relationship with Dr. Vladem and had the privilege of interviewing him on the radio several times. I am deeply saddened by his sudden and untimely passing. In spite of his many challenges, he remained enthusiastic and excited about the projects he was working on, and his main mission was always to help others. He left a legacy, and I will always remember him."

Please support transplant research and advocacy. Donations may be mailed to:

Illinois Eye-Bank

KIMBERLY BERG:

Artist Rejects Patriarchal Society and Empowers Women to Forge New Pathway

Kimberly Berg has awakened the ancient goddess! A male feminist artist, Berg's work challenges the patriarchal system that has evolved to dominate our world by exposing it as a system that is not only unworkable and unsustainable, but also unjust. Guided by the prehistoric record, which shows evidence that pre-patriarchal Neolithic societies respected and honored their women, Berg believes that we are approaching the tipping point of patriarchal dominance as women gain the confidence to reclaim their inherent birthright.  And just to be sure a feminist transformation is underway, Berg has heaved the final stones necessary to tip the scale by launching a campaign to educate the public on the history of women's culture and the factors that led to its unfortunate subjugation.

Berg has recently unveiled The Legacy of the Goddess, a power point presentation which outlines the forgotten pre-history of women's culture and highlights the revered role of woman in Neolithic societies.  By bringing his message to classrooms and community centers across the country, Berg hopes to restore the female voice so that she may dance once again into the wind.

Kimberly Berg holds a Bachelor of Science in History from the University of Wisconsin, with a concentration in Ancient History.  He lives a self-sustaining life of voluntary simplicity in a Thoreau-like cabin, surrounded by the trees and wildlife of the Adirondack Mountains. Without electricity and with only a wood burning stove for heat in this sometimes harsh climate, Berg has forged an essential pact with nature and has learned to respect and appreciate the elements of his lifestyle that have become extinct in modern society. His interest in women's advocacy was sparked by a book written by Layne Redmond entitled When Drummers Were Women, which opened his eyes to the historical decline in women's stature and the urgent necessity that both genders work together to restore equality for the greater good of humanity.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service?

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"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.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

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.
