The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization Praises Senator Baucus for Introducing the Ninth Annual Resolution Establishing "National Asbestos Awareness Week"

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), which combines education, advocacy and community as the leading U.S. organization serving as the voice of asbestos victims, today applauds Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) and cosponsors for again introducing Senate Resolution 66 designating the first week of April as "National Asbestos Awareness Week" that seeks to "raise public awareness about the prevalence of asbestos-related diseases and the dangers of asbestos exposure."

"ADAO applauds the U.S. Senate for its introduction of the Ninth Annual Resolution recognizing National Asbestos Awareness Week," said Linda Reinstein, President and Co-Founder of the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization. "As a mesothelioma widow, it is still shocking to me that most Americans are unaware that asbestos has not been banned and exposure continues at home, work, and in our children's schools. Since 2005, educational collaborative efforts have increased, as prevention remains the only cure for mesothelioma and other asbests-caused diseases. We know education saves dollars and lives and ADAO looks forward to the U.S. Senate unanimously passing this important Resolution designating April 1 - 7 to be a week of awareness to protect families throughout the nation."

"Sadly, we do not have a cure for cancers caused by asbestos, but they are preventable. Asbestos Awareness Week promotes saving lives through prevention. On behalf of ADAO, thank you Senator Baucus, and your supporters Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA (News - Alert)), Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL), Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) for helping us save lives through designating a week for asbestos disease awareness to remind the American public that asbestos-related diseases still occur but that the good news is they can be prevented," said Dr. Richard A. Lemen, ADAO Science Advisory Co-Chair and retired Assistant Surgeon General.

Asbestos is a known human carcinogen and exposure can cause mesothelioma, lung, gastrointestinal, laryngeal and ovarian cancers, as well as non-malignant lung and pleural disorders. The World Health Organization estimates that 107,000 workers around the world will die every year of an asbestos-related disease - equaling 300 deaths per day.

ADAO will hold its Ninth Annual International Asbestos Awareness Conference on March 23 in Washington, D.C. To register for ADAO's 2013 conference, visit the following link: http://bit.ly/Svdp0c

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

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.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

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.
