BIBAMAS Introduces First-Ever Bible Pajamas


Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 19, 2014

BIBAMAS, pronounced “by-bam-uhz,” are the first-ever pajamas based on Biblical heroes. While polls show that Americans are losing faith in the Bible at a rapid rate, these pajamas can increase faith and help children look up to Bible heroes rather than just super heroes.

Mommy, does Jesus have super hero powers? asked Kellie Jeppsons four year old son. Yes, as a matter of fact he does! she said as she looked at him in his super hero pajamas. Kellie thought to herself, How can I help him think more about Jesus and other Bible heroes? After all, real heroes dont wear capes.

While a great deal of money is spent every year by companies to manufacture clothing with a super hero theme such as Superman, Spiderman or Batman, until now there has not been a similar emphasis on Biblical heroes like Jesus, Moses, Esther and Jonah.

The same is true with Christmas pajamas featuring Santa, reindeer, and elves. Finally, children can now wear Christmas Bibamas that will help them remember that silent, holy night so long ago.

BIBAMAS, located on the web at http://www.bibamas.com, will help children think more about Bible characters and look up to these real-life heroes in the same way children look up to and emulate imaginary super heroes. Each pair of these powerful pajamas is designed to inspire faith, obedience, courage, and love in the children that will wear them.

To help complete the first production run of BIBAMAS, a crowdsourcing campaign has been started on Kickstarter.com at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2041310357/bibamas-first-ever-bible-pajamas.

Kickstarter is a way to fund creative ideas and uses an all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or the project will receive nothing. If Bibamas budget ($ 15,000 US) isnt raised before October 5th, all pledges will be cancelled.

BIBAMAS are currently made of 100% flame-resistant, polyester. The Christmas Nativity pajama bottoms are made of polar fleece for extra warmth and comfort. BIBAMAS are manufactured in a manner that meets all guidelines and safety regulations outlined by the US Consumer Product Safety Council.

BIBAMAS are available in sizes 12 months to 10 years. Sizes may vary depending on the child’s individual measurements. BIBAMAS are made of high-quality construction, safe and comfortable for children.

Monty Helfgotts New Book The Silence is a Quest to Reveal Shrouded Secrets of a Lost Identity Unveiled at Last


(PRWEB) September 18, 2014

Monty Helfgott, an educational psychologist, has completed his new book The Silence: a thrill ride of action and intrigue involving archeological relics of unknown origin and superpowers seeking a mystical weapon.

Monty Helfgott, Ed.D. is an educational psychologist by profession and author of five books focusing on the needs of special education students. Apart from his professional involvement in the fields of special education and psychology, other interests have contributed to the fictional fabric of The Silence among them, an abiding fascination with history, archeology, and paranormal-Jewish Mysticism. In preparation for the novels development, Dr. Helfgott traveled extensively to the Eastern European countries of Poland and Ukraine spending time within the cities of Warsaw, and Lvov, in Western Ukraine. In addition, several weeks were spent in the Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to exploring specific Biblical sites described in the novel. These Israeli cities, as well as other sites within the state of Israel, played an important role in the development of the story through the character of John Mackenzie and his Quest. On a more personal note, Dr. Helfgott was interested in exploring The Silence that existed between himself and his father. He explains that as he grew older, he understood that his father was part of a generation having lived through the end of World War I, the entirety of the Great Depression and World War II, and a generation that believed suffering in silence was perhaps courageous. The ramifications of that generational stance are illuminated on a large scale, connecting the personal with the historical and the multidimensional within the story. Many parent-child relationships are characterized by some form of miscommunication or no communication.

This underlying theme is part of what gives The Silence its universal appeal – in addition to its allure as a fast-paced thriller imbued with historical as well as paranormal overtones. The Silence is the first book in a trilogy exploring world events spanning most of the 20th century and surround the novels main character John Mackenzie in his identity Quest played out in New York and other cities around the world. The second and third books in the series will reveal the historical roles of Mackenzies ancestors, and follow him as he embraces his destiny.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Monty Helfgotts powerful tale is the story of one man’s search for truth amidst enshrouding darkness.

Readers who wish to experience this exciting work can purchase The Silence at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.

ViziHealth Networks Demonstrates Mobile Multimedia Patient Management Application Powered by Kandy

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2014

ViziHealth Networks today announced it is demonstrating one of its next generation patient care applications leveraging WebRTC and intuitive intelligence technologies with care model and business model innovation at GENBANDs launch of its Kandy real time communications software development platform-as-a-service (PaaS) in San Francisco this evening.

ViziHealth Networks is a new company, whose mission is to deliver turn-key solutions that close gaps in care while driving new revenue models for health system clients by extending clinical and brand reach, increasing health literacy of their customers, and enabling commerce in the post-acute environment.

ViziHealth Networks offers a mobile application that runs on smartphones and tablets, which keeps patients connected with their primary care physician, specialist team, pharmacist and nursing teams to communicate in real time, while also monitoring behaviors and vital signs.

We established ViziHealth Networks at the intersection of the innovations that new technologies like WebRTC enable, new requirements for healthcare providers to streamline and digitize care regimens, payors to create efficiencies driven by their own strategies as well as to comply with new government regulations, said Jeffrey Singman, EVP, ViziHealth Networks. With more and more access to sophisticated mobile devices, networks, and healthcare technology application integration, it is now possible to provide convenient and contextual communications that include visual content whether thats a live video chat or sharing of medical imaging and secure health records. With the ViziHealth navigator, patients and their care teams can simply and intuitively stay connected, reducing in-person visits, while improving patient satisfaction and ultimately outcomes.

GENBAND, a real time communications software company, previewed their Kandy PaaS earlier this year, and this evening is showcasing applications, like those ViziHealth Networks have created, using the APIs, SDKs and software services on the platform, helping developers build experiences without having to invent and invest in the software and networks that make connectivity and creativity possible.

Of the four products ViziHealth will be offering, they will share ViziHome at the Kandy premiere and on the Kandy website showcase. Patients leaving the hospital are provisioned tablets in this scenario for member in-home utilization, and includes cloud-based surveillance & care, personalization and policy setting, and intelligent algorithms with branching logic that help automate care while at the same time providing a human touch through easy voice and video consultations.

The user experience will be shared, with live sessions being demonstrated showing patient, physician and pharmacist communication flows.

We are excited to power real time communications solutions for innovative companies like ViziHealth, said Paul Pluschkell, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer for GENBAND, and the visionary behind the Kandy platform. Kandy makes it possible to quickly and cost-efficiently introduce next generation healthcare applications, while also knowing the platform and network is secure enough to support the important compliance and availability requirements necessary for success.

XCurrency’s Revolutionary Privacy Advancement: Trustless Ad Hoc Mesh Networking


Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 17, 2014

XCurrency has released the central and final component of its privacy-centric payments solution, and much like the multifaceted ingenuity in Satoshi Nakamotos invention of the Bitcoin blockchain, it is a single protocol with far-reaching implications. Its immediate function is to allow any app on the XC network to communicate on behalf of other apps without the others having to trust them; however its implementation has game-changing aspects.

Put briefly, when someone makes a private payment using the XC app, the transaction is split into fragments, which are sent to several other nodes also making payments. These nodes form ad hoc mesh networks with each other that exist only for the duration of each transaction, in which no node functions as a hub or server. The nodes mix transactions in a manner analogous to coinshuffle, where no node knows which other nodes coins theyre forwarding, and no link exists on the blockchain between sender and receiver. The effect of this is true privacy: due to forwarding, the senders and receivers identities are concealed, and due to transaction-fragmentation, the amounts sent are concealed. In fact, since all nodes can forward transactions, nodes cannot even tell whether a given fragment originates from the node it receives it from or whether that node forwarded it from somewhere else.

While trustless multipath mixing, as the above is called, has the direct purpose of making transactions truly private, what is of greater value is that it sets new paradigms for distributed content servers, mobile blockchains, and private web browsing. It is the true foundation of XCs web 3.0 plans. How this is possible is as follows:

A COINJOIN KILLER

It has often been assumed that the next major advance in cryptocurrency would be a cryptographic one. It turns out, however, that XCurrencys major breakthrough is as much an extension of advanced networking technology as it is a cryptographic innovation. One of the most popular techniques for anonymising transactions is CoinJoin, however in comparison to XCs trustless multipath mesh, it is at a decisive disadvantage:


CoinJoin is vulnerable to a denial-of-service attack: if a single node fails (or refuses) to sign a transaction, then every participating node has to re-sign. In contrast, by design XCs mesh is continually and dynamically altering its topology, and has no trouble of this sort.

CoinJoin has no intrinsic way of disciplining bad nodes, whereas XCs mesh is capable of discovering bad nodes and excluding them from the mesh.

Nodes participating in a CoinJoin transaction generally know the sender, receiver, and amount sent. Thus, even though the blockchain does not record a link between sender and receiver, the information can be extracted from a node. XCs trustless mixing conceals links between sender and receiver even from forwarding nodes, and its multipath fragmentation conceals the amount. Thus even if nodes are hacked, they cannot reveal sensitive information.

CoinJoin generally requires a mixing server or some form of semi-centralised supernode (cf. DarkCoin masternodes). XCs mesh networks are entirely distributed, even with the recent addition of Xmixers.

A TOR REPLACEMENT

The Onion Router, an aging US-government initiative with several vulnerabilities, is the de facto, though imperfect, means for the privacy-conscious to conceal their IP addresses. However a trustless mesh network is ideally suited to conceal IP addresses, since nodes mix content and are not able to discover the nature of the content, and because its distributed topology renders it highly resilient to attacks against any one node or collection of nodes. As such, XC nodes make an excellent foundation for next-generation IP-concealment. This feature can be expected in future XC developments. Added to the privacy features above, it results in 100% privacy for XC users.

IDEAL FOR MOBILE

In order for a cryptographic platform to go mainstream, it is absolutely essential that it be truly mobile-friendly. This is directly where XCurrency is headed. Trustless multipath mesh networks are ideally suited to this purpose, as can be seen from analogous technologies like mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), which are continuously self-configuring, infrastructure-less networks adept at handling the fluctuating signal strength and changing locations of mobile devices.

XC founder and lead developer Dan Metcalf is a leader in distributed wireless network design, as his LinkedIn profile suggests. When founding XCurrency, he perceived that his core contribution to the advancement of cryptocurrency would be to use this expertise to improve the privacy and mobility of blockchain-based technologies. XCs trustless multipath mesh networking will excel on mobile devices, and the blockchain will be as much at home on mobile as it is on PCs and servers. Mobile apps will form ad hoc networks upon demand, require no servers, secure XCs network, and trustlessly mix transactions just as PC- and server-based apps do.

WEB 3.0

XCurrency recently announced its plans for a distributed content delivery service, and a trustless multipath mesh is the ideal delivery vehicle for such a service. Any device, mobile or not, will have the capacity to store and serve content even though its signal strength fluctuates and its connections to its peers change continuously. And for clients, service delivery will remain robust regardless of any one nodes quality of service, and the systems distributed nature makes it effectively invulnerable to attack.

XCs plans for web 3.0 will be further enhanced by being able to recruit mobile devices as content servers. Furthermore, XC users will gain another source of revenue from running XC on their mobile devices. By simply installing XChat (instant messaging with true privacy), users will thereby gain a source of remuneration.

XCurrency is preparing to launch publicly, and trustless multipath meshes are an integral part of its approach. With the final piece of its privacy puzzle in place, XC is optimally positioned to deliver a platform for next-generation distributed apps and services.
