GUARDaHEART Foundation Kicks Off Heart Disease Awareness Month as the Charity of Choice for Fashion Destination Group and Intermix 'Get Glam' Event

IRVINE, CA, Feb 08, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- GUARDaHEART, a non-profit foundation committed to raising awareness about Heart Disease prevention, kicked off Heart Disease Awareness Month as the Charity of Choice for Fashion Destination and Intermix 'Get Glam' event on January 31, 2013. The well-attended event was held at South Coast Plaza's Intermix retail location in Costa Mesa from 6-8 pm.

Intermix was transformed into a stylish party scene, complete with runway models displaying fabulous designer fashions, tasty appetizers, specialty cocktails, mini makeovers courtesy of Planet Earth and music by DJ Quinto Sol. In addition, a portion of the proceeds went to benefit GUARDaHEART Foundation and their "SaveThe1" campaign, designed to raise awareness and education for Heart Disease.

Through their numerous events, GUARDaHEART has not only raised awareness for heart disease, they have also empowered individuals to take charge of their heart health. Because of their consistent efforts, hundreds of people now know their heart risk and have been able to make important lifestyle modifications to mitigate the likelihood of a life-altering cardiac event.

Fashion Destination Group Founder and event host, Marisa Kenson debuted her new smile at the Get Glam event, courtesy of event supporter, Dr. Lance Timmerman. "It was our great pleasure to once again choose GUARDaHEART Foundation to be the Charity of Choice at this fun upscale event, illustrating that Heart Disease prevention is always in fashion," commented Kenson. "We are proud to support organizations like GUARDaHEART which continue to create programs to combat the devastating impact of Heart Disease through education and awareness." About GUARDaHEART Foundation GUARDaHEART is a non-profit foundation dedicated to raising awareness of Heart Disease prevention by spreading the word to guard your heart and save your life. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The good news is if individuals know their risk and take the necessary steps, most cardiovascular disease can be prevented and reversed if detected early. Although heart disease is typically diagnosed in adulthood, its roots are often found in childhood. Compelling research has shown that plaque buildup in the arterial walls begins very early in life and progresses throughout life. Intervention strategies and healthy lifestyle modification to reduce heart disease risk should begin early when reversal of the process is easier, not later in life when the disease is more developed. GUARDaHEART Foundation also provides assistance for individuals who are unable to pay for cardiac risk assessments. Please visit http://www.guardaheart.org for more information.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
