WebHealer working with Samaritans to increase the power of fundraising
Feel Good Friday is back - this year, on Friday 1 February 2013 - and WebHealer is once again proud to be supporting it with its Feel Good Friday Therapy Map - now even bigger and better than last year.
Feel Good Friday is a national fundraising initiative in aid of Samaritans, when everyone is encouraged to brighten their day a little by raising funds to allow the charity to continue their vital life-saving service.
How it works is simple: WebHealer's interactive map lists therapists who have committed to supporting Feel Good Friday by donating a proportion of their treatment costs to Samaritans. Most therapists are donating at least £3 per treatment to Samaritans - some are even donating as much as £20 per treatment.
"It was the first time I have taken part in anything like this and I was amazed by the response - to the point that I had to extend my Friday to the day before! And I raised £135 for Samaritans."
Amanda Weller, http://www.quantumbeing.co.uk (supported Feel Good Friday in 2012)
The team at WebHealer is inviting you to use the Therapy Map to find a participating therapist in your area and book directly for a treatment on Friday 1 February, when part of the cost will go directly to Samaritans. All sorts of therapies are available: reflexology, shiatsu massage, hypnotherapy, beauty treatments and many more.
Samaritans Executive Director of Fundraising and Communications, Rachel Kirby-Rider, said:
"We are delighted that WebHealer is supporting Feel Good Friday for the second year in a row and we wish them the best of luck. Funds raised from the day will allow us to continue to deliver our round-the-clock service for anyone going through a tough time."
WebHealer runs websites for thousands of professional therapists throughout the UK. In 2012, there were 110 therapists on the WebHealer interactive map; it proved so useful in helping people find those taking part in Feel Good Friday, that WebHealer is extending the map this year to include more than 250 therapists. It's also creating a PDF download poster for therapists to use locally - thus spreading the message even wider.
Phil Hulme, Director, WebHealer, added:
"We're also going to match any funds raised by our clients this year, thus doubling the amount we will be able to donate to Samaritans."
So book a session with one of the therapists on the Feel Good Friday Therapy Map - and feel twice as good. Not only will you be helping yourself with a therapy session, you'll be helping Samaritans at the same time.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade.
