THIS ST. PATRICK'S DAY DOWNTOWN BOCA IS CALLING "FORE" DECORATED GOLF CARTS

BOCA RATON, FL  (PRBuzz.com) February 20, 2012 -- Downtown Boca invites families, area neighborhoods, country clubs and golf courses, schools and universities, and visitors to "rev up" their St. Patrick's Day celebration on Saturday, March 17th by registering to participate in or lining the streets for its First Annual "Off The Green" Downtown Boca Golf Cart Parade presented by Delray Hyundai-Delray Acura and held in conjunction with Festival of the Arts BOCA St. Patrick Day Extravaganza. Including several solar-powered carts featured by Shamrock GREEN Sponsor: the PGA Tour's Allianz Championship, the free, family-friendly, open-to-the-public parade will begin at 12 Noon at Mizner Park Amphitheater (590 Plaza Real).

To showcase Downtown Boca's great shopping, dining, cultural, entertainment and lifestyle offerings, the golf cart parade will travel south on Plaza Real through Mizner Park, past Sanborn Square, across Palmetto Park Road at Mizner Boulevard, through Royal Palm Place, and then back to the Mizner Park Amphitheater. Spectators can watch the festivities from Sanborn Square or from the official "watch spots" and favorite Irish pubs and eateries in Downtown Boca.
 
A cash prize and "Irish Gift Basket" will be awarded at the conclusion of the parade at the Mizner Park Amphitheater clock tower to the most creatively decorated golf cart, as judged by representatives from local Irish establishments.
 
"We are proud to be the presenting sponsor of this inaugural event in Downtown Boca and are looking forward to all of the day's festivities," said Jim O'Neil, president of Delray Hyundai-Delray Acrua. "We are excited about an entire week of world class entertainment with the Festival of the Arts BOCA, and the culmination being this new parade and the Irish extravaganza in Downtown Boca.  It's going to be great fun for the community."
 
With emphasis on making it an even GREENER St. Patrick's Day, Allianz Championship tournament director Ryan Dillon notes that "the parade gives us yet another opportunity to advocate for the on-going ambitious GREEN goals we put into swing at our 2012 tournament to achieve a smaller carbon footprint, set precedent for zero waste at other large spectator events, and directly benefit and support the 'greening' initiatives of the City of Boca Raton, our tournament host for the past six years."
 
More Celebration Follows Parade

At 1:30 p.m., free festivities courtesy of Mizner Park, The Dubliner and coordinating sponsor Festival of the Arts Boca will feature c hildren's activities and bagpipes. The Festival of the Arts BOCA St. Patrick's Day Extravaganza at the Mizner Park Amphitheater begins at 3:00 p.m. with performances by the Drake Irish Dancers, fiddler James Kelly. Founded by Karl Drake, the Drake School of Irish Dance is one of the strongest schools of Irish Dance in the southeast, producing many regional and national champions as well as World Medal holders. Beginning at 6 p.m., the Festival of the Arts will present a free live concert by Celtic band Seven Nations.
 
Premier seating is available: $20 for adults and $10 for children over 12 years old.  Limited free general "on-the-lawn" admission is available for those who bring their own chairs or blankets.

"It's wonderful to see the downtown community coming together to celebrate and start a new tradition in the City," said Festival of the Arts Chairman Charles Siemon.  "We are very thankful to festival sponsors General Growth Properties, Delray Hyundai Delray Acura and the Dubliner for providing us with the opportunity to bring great talent to the party."
 
City of Boca Raton Downtown Manager Ruby Childers agrees. "It is collaborations, business engagement, and sponsor support like this that make Downtown Boca a stronger, more vibrant destination where visitors and residents can come early, stay late ...knowing something for everyone awaits."
 
The fee to register a decorated golf cart in the parade is $25; for registration information, visit

Parylene 101: Learn about the best protection for MEMS

This paper explains the basic history, processes, and applications of the ultimate conformal coating, parylene. Parylene has historically been used to protect printed circuit boards, LEDS, and medical devices from rugged environments and the human body, but now the pin-hole free coating is being used increasingly by the leaders in the MEMS market. With no known chemical that can harm the film, it is a perfect application for fuel tanks, water meters, or any product that must function in a hazardous environment. May 22, 2014

The Next Step in Diagnosis Resolution Improvement

Learn more about RCD as the next step in diagnosis solution enhancement. Where layout-aware diagnosis points to a segment, earn more about RCD as the next step in diagnosis solution enhancement. Where layout-aware diagnosis points to a segment, RCD can isolate a particular root cause in that segment. RCD, a statistical enhancement technology in Tessent Diagnosis and YieldInsight products, is the next step in diagnosis resolution enhancement. It works by analyzing multiple layout diagnosis reports together to identify the underlying defect distribution that is more likely to explain this set of diagnosis results. RCD does not require any additional data beyond what is required for layout-aware diagnosis. This means that RCD fits well into existing diagnosis flows. April 24, 2014
