Dr. Todd M. Britten and the team at Britten Periodontics & Implant Dentistry held their 4th annual Free Dental Day for Veterans on November 9, 2018.
CLEARWATER, Fla. (PRWEB) November 11, 2018
Dr. Todd M. Britten and the team at Britten Periodontics & Implant Dentistry held their 4th annual Free Dental Day for Veterans on November 9, 2018. The team at Britten Periodontics had overwhelming offers to help from many dental professionals in the community willing to donate their time and resources to provide free dental care. This year’s event was assisted by local family dentists and restorative dentistry experts Dr. Jeffrey Ellenberg and Dr. Michael Podlusky. “Having local dentists involved enables us to provide more comprehensive care to our veterans,” Dr. Todd Britten said.
“The Community Dental Clinic in Clearwater helped us to coordinate this year’s event. We are so happy to help provide care for their patients who need to see a periodontist,” said one of Dr. Britten’s team members. “Once again this year, with the help of our restorative dentists, we were able to provide extractions, full dentures, fillings, dental implants, dental cleanings, x-rays and exams,” said another team member.
Air Force Veteran John Fallon was looking forward to his new smile, provided by Dr. Michael Podlusky who practices in Largo, Florida. When asked what the dental care provided by this event means to him, Fallon said, “Going out more, being able to talk to people and not running away because I get self-conscious with no teeth.”
Dr. Jeff Ellenberg of Clearwater, Florida, was helping in the care of Navy Veteran Ernest Bach. Bach said, “This Veteran’s Day is very special to me specifically because of the generosity of the dentists who are donating their time and talents to give this veteran a new perspective and the ability to socialize and participate as I once used to!”
Britten Periodontics & Implant Dentistry is a periodontal practice offering patients personalized dental care in implant dentistry in Clearwater, Florida. Dr. Todd Britten offers sedation dentistry, which can be very helpful for those needing advanced treatment, suffer from PTSD or have a fear of the dentist.

VANTIQ Pronto Dynamic Advanced Event Broker™ enables organizations with real-time business responsiveness across enterprise, cloud and edge events
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VANTIQ today announced VANTIQ Pronto, the industry’s first dynamic “Advanced Event Broker” (AEB). IT leaders from across the U.S. learned how Pronto is designed to deliver unique advantages for companies looking to power modern, event-driven applications with the real-time business responsiveness, intelligence and agility required for digital transformation initiatives. VANTIQ Pronto will be generally available to developers on November 30 at no charge for up to 2 million event messages in production per month.
According to Gartner, “Application leaders engaged in digital transformation must include event-driven computing in their portfolio of skills and technology, including the key related responsibilities for event brokering and event stream analytics.”^1
Providing capabilities well beyond traditional event and message brokers, the VANTIQ Pronto Dynamic AEB enables constant monitoring of an operation by accepting events from anywhere (e.g. IoT, mobile devices, legacy systems), analyzing them in real time, and sending those event messages to subscribing applications and systems. Events can be analyzed independently, in streams, or combined with other events or information from external services — enabling comprehensive situational awareness and true digital business innovation.
“VANTIQ continues to innovate on the real-time, event-driven technologies required for successful IoT, IIoT, artificial intelligence, and business blockchain initiatives,” said Marty Sprinzen, CEO and co-founder of VANTIQ. “VANTIQ Pronto can even function as a broker of brokers, supporting event management for real-time business responsiveness in complex systems. Pronto enables applications to easily sense, analyze and act on events in a way that was not previously easily achievable.”
*The Purpose of Event Brokers: Why the Right Choice Matters*
Gartner continues, “Middleware products that additionally offer special support for event-centric use cases (for example, a persistent event ledger for analysis and event sourcing, or programmable extensibility for custom filtering and analysis) are ‘advanced’ event brokers.”^2
VANTIQ Pronto has those advanced event broker capabilities, yet is unique in that it delivers a Dynamic AEB that:
· Provides for the easy discovery and re-use of event streams across enterprise applications via the Pronto Dynamic Event Catalog™
· Enables the rapid development and application of complex augmentations and transformations to events from multiple sources, using VANTIQ’s high-productivity, low/no-code approach – also featured in VANTIQ’s rapid application development platform, Modelo
· Ensures there is no single point of failure, removes bottlenecks, and reduces latency with the unique Pronto Dynamic Event Mesh™ deployment at run-time
· Orchestrates connections between data sources, other event brokers and message queues via standard integrations including Kafka, IBM MQ, MQTT, AMQP, and others; easily integrates into virtually any application platform or environment using the VANTIQ Enterprise Connectors SDK
As a result, the VANTIQ Pronto Dynamic AEB is the only advanced event broker that delivers the continuous awareness, intelligence and agility required for modern event-driven systems.
“Our industrial customers who are on a digital transformation journey can benefit from VANTIQ’s innovation with the Pronto Dynamic AEB, as well as the highly productive distributed VANTIQ Modelo application development platform,” said Bryan DeBois, software manager at RoviSys – VANTIQ partner and the largest independent systems integrator in the United States building industrial applications that enable powerful process control and automation. “By combining our deep expertise in OSIsoft PI System® and industrial software projects with VANTIQ’s scalable Pronto for event management, we can deliver real-time event-driven applications with greater speed and agility.”
VANTIQ Pronto is available in a Cloud Edition, fully managed by VANTIQ running on major clouds including AWS, Azure, and Alibaba Cloud; a Server Edition for use in private clouds; and an Edge Edition for use on edge nodes. Users can build dynamic event broker applications with the VANTIQ Pronto Cloud Edition and bring them to production at no charge up to 2 million event messages per month. Pronto will be generally available on November 30, 2018. Sign up *here* to be notified when Pronto releases.
VANTIQ – the company that powers real-time business operations – provides the only truly dynamic platform for quickly and easily creating transformative, digital applications to drive your agile business operations in real time. Founded in 2015 by renowned tech industry veterans Marty Sprinzen and Paul Butterworth, VANTIQ enables those involved in mission-critical business operations to benefit from a new breed of digital applications with dramatically reduced time-to-market, significantly lower development and maintenance costs, and maximum agility in response to constantly-changing operational requirements.

ACP’s distinguished Advisory Council includes General (Ret.) David H. Petraeus, Jon Stewart, and Karl Rove.
Today, ACP is announcing the launch of an Active Duty Military Spouse Mentoring Program. ACP’s new program will offer personalized, one-on-one yearlong mentorships for the spouses of active duty servicemembers to receive career guidance from top business professionals and entrepreneurs nationwide.

There are more than 600,000 spouses of active duty servicemembers. On average, military families move seven times more often than civilian families. Seventy percent of active duty spouses report that their education or work experience is not being fully utilized in their current job. ACP’s new program is designed to assist active duty military spouses build long-term careers and find meaningful employment. Active duty military spouses will be paired with private sector Mentors to discuss topics ranging from building résumés, translating skills, networking, work-life balance, and building small businesses.
Georgeann McRaven, wife of retired Admiral William McRaven, is assisting ACP in building the program, which expects to mentor 1,500 spouses over the next two years. As a military spouse for 36 years, Georgeann is committed to supporting our nation’s military families. “Military spouses are our nation's invisible heroes," Georgeann said. “ACP is a well-established resource for servicemembers, and I’m delighted to see the program open up to active duty military spouses.”

Chicago's flagship, the 86 foot yacht OCEAN was more than just a race boat -- she was a platform to raise funds for kids in need. The boat has been donated to a maritime school on the west coast and will depart Chicago on November 15.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) November 14, 2018
The yacht OCEAN, Chicago's flagship and largest racing sailboat, has been donated to California State University Maritime Academy in Southern California, with an appraised value of $1.35 million.
OCEAN is the biggest race yacht in Chicago and second in size on all the Great Lakes. She is a marvel of technology with a mast soaring 100 feet, a lifting keel that allows the boat to enter local marinas, a computer-controlled ballast system and a variety of high-tech weather and navigation systems. Her largest sail is 5,000 square feet which is flown from the forward tip of the yacht that measures 86 feet from stem to stern. She has a distinctive deep blue hull upon which the boat’s name OCEAN glistens in assertive gold calligraphy.
“Cal Maritime is incredibly honored and excited to be receiving such an amazing yacht. We look forward to carrying on the OCEAN legacy.” said Tyler Wolk of the academy. “I know she is going where she was born to run. We'll always treasure the memories of racing this great yacht.” said Jim Banovitz, Captain and Pinnacle Foundation board member.
The boat was christened OCEAN upon her arrival in Chicago. Her name was inspired by the poet Satoro who said "Individually, we are a drop of water. Together, we are an ocean." Sentiment that rings clear to her tight crew of sixteen who consider each other family.
OCEAN made her local debut at the Strictly Sail Show at Navy Pier in 2011. In a very rare occurrence, Lake Shore Drive was shut down as the massive boat was trucked to the pier on a blustery winter Sunday.
Her appearance in Chicago shook the race scene. Some in the race circuit said she was too much boat for her crew. Her record of line honor victories and flawless safe sailing eventually won over the early naysayers and propelled the boat and her crew to rock star status in the Great Lakes.
But OCEAN has done far more than win boat races.
She was a platform for fundraising for the Pinnacle Foundation which was created with her arrival, and the centerpiece of the Chicago Regatta, the foundation’s signature event which has since been adopted by the Chicago Yacht Club. To date, the Pinnacle Foundation and affiliated individuals and organizations have donated about $350,000 to child-related organizations, including the University of Chicago's Comer Children's Hospital, Northwestern's Lurie Children's Hospital, Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, SOS Illinois and others. "These are the best wins she gave us." said Gary Feracota, Person in Charge of the yacht and President of the Pinnacle Foundation.
The boat also paid tribute to the heroes of 9/11 with veterans and an honor guard including the US Coast Guard, Navy, Marine Fire and Marine Police. On the infamous anniversaries, she could be seen flying a 40 x 60 foot American Flag from her ten-story mast as she screamed across Chicago's Lakefront in a show of American strength and fortitude.
OCEAN is crewed and owned by sixteen equity partners who raced the yacht hard and gave their time and finances for various charities. “It has been a very emotional time for us.” said Patti Feracota, Partner and Crew Person of the yacht. “Feelings in Chicago run deep about this beautiful boat and everything good she stands for."
"Our team has always known we were caretakers of a work of art and science that would someday pass to the next generation. That day has arrived, and we are all grateful to have had her in our lives. Heartfelt thanks to our dear friends from around world who have helped us campaign the boat on the race course and rally hearts and minds to do good in the community." said Gary Feracota.
OCEAN will depart the Chicago area from Larsen Marine on November 15. Reported by PRWeb 3 hours ago.
