    IBM toxic pool defies cleanup

    TOM WILBER, Special to the Press & Sun-Bulletin 1:37 p.m. EDT April 5, 2015

    A remedy for a concentrated pool of solvents directly under the manufacturing site where at least 1,500 people still work may take years to find.

    Story Highlights

    The contaminated hot spot lies under an area the size of eight village blocks.
    Situated over and near the source area, and blocking access to cleanup, are dozens of buildings.
    To date, nearly 70,000 gallons of solvent %u2014 more than 40 tons %u2014 have been pumped from the ground.

    ENDICOTT – After 35 years, IBM Corp. contractors have stanched the flow of industrial solvents into a commercial and residential district in the heart of the village, but they have yet to find a solution for the source of the problem at the company's former flagship manufacturing plant.

    Officials recently reported that efforts to intercept and remove the subterranean flow of hazardous chemicals coming from the industrial complex — now owned by Huron Real Estate Associates — have been successful. Consequently, health risks to a nearby neighborhood have been eliminated.

    Yet they have no remedy for a concentrated pool of solvents directly under the manufacturing site, where at least 1,500 people still work. Full story: http://www.pressconnects.com/story/news/local/2015/04/05/ibm-tce-issues/25302109/

    Cloudy days ahead for IBM . . . but that's a good thing!

    in Business

    Organizations are re-inventing themselves to deliver deeper and more valuable experiences across all aspects of the customer’s journey. No matter the size or industry, each supplier and partner plays a critical role in an organization’s ability to provide an exceptional customer experience.

    In May, at the IBM Smarter Commerce Global Summit in Tampa, FL, IBM introduced new cloud-based and on premise software and services to help clients deepen engagement with partners and suppliers to help ensure goods and services are delivered precisely when and where they are needed. The new B2B integration software will provide better insight and control over today’s extended value chain as well as lower risk and enhance compliance.

    Joining me today to tell us what this all means for not only IBM's clients but the venerable giant's internal structure is Terrence Curley, Director of Products for B2B & Commerce at IBM.

    IoT Security: Reality or Thriller Plot Threats?

    in Technology

    When researchers discover vulnerabilities in Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the media hypes the consequences as if the movie "Maximum Overdrive" has jumped off the big screen and into reality. Will your connected car refuse to respond to your stabs at the brake pedal? Will soda machines start shooting cans at unsuspecting passers by? When will our robot vacuums rebel, controlled by Skynet?

    Join Caleb Barlow and Chris Poulin, Research Strategist for IBM's X-Force Security Threat Intelligence Team and IoT and connected car security expert, to separate the real security threats from FUD.

    Kathy Porter grew up in Endicott, New York, the birthplace of IBM and only a short distance from where one of her favorite TV series creators, Rod Serling, was raised. Kathy's lifelong interest in science fiction ignited when her father, a science teacher, showed her craters on the moon and taught her about the constellations. She grew up watching science fiction movies and TV shows. Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles was her first delve into a science fiction novel, and she has been hooked ever since.

    "I think I was born telling stories," Kathy explained during a recent interview. "As second to the oldest of seven children, the girls all slept in one bedroom. I loved making up bedtime stories with an eerie edge to frighten my sisters: tales about fairies, leprechauns, and aliens."

    Computer America

    Hour one: Sentinel Background Checks, Rachid Zahidi, CEO.

    The success of a company relies on its people. Protect your assets by conducting background checks. Taking steps to properly screen your applicants can help you increase productivity and profitability by connecting the right person with the right position. Although, there are different types of background checks, establishing a clear and concise background screening policy can ensure consistency in the screening process; avoid exceptions and favoritism and conduct checks on all applicants. Sentinel's mission is to provide the highest degree of competent, accurate and professional background screening solutions. Their best practices approach, risk management perspective and focus on informing and serving their clients, creates a culture that strives to provide excellence at every step of the screening process.


    Hour Two: Dr. Jan Camenisch, Cryptographer at IBM Research.

    We all use electronic services increasingly often in our daily lives. To do so, we have no choice but to provide plenty of personal information for authorization, billing purposes, or as part of the terms and conditions of service providers.

    Identity Mixer allows users to minimize the personal data they have to reveal in such transactions. For instance, if electronic identity (eID) cards were realized with Identity Mixer, then teenagers possessing such eID cards could log onto a teenage chat room just proving that they are indeed 12–15 years of age without revealing any other information stored on the card such as their name or address.
