OMAHA, NE -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- Complete Nutrition, the fast-growing nutritional supplement retailer known for its consultative approach to health and fitness, announces a partnership with Tampa Bay Buccaneers legend Mike Alstott, marking the company's first national deal with a professional athlete. Alstott will serve as a spokesman and appear in marketing campaigns to promote Complete Nutrition's Mancore line of testosterone-boosting and weight-loss supplements geared toward active men ages 30 to 55.
Throughout a 12-year NFL career, six-time Pro Bowl fullback and 2003 Super Bowl champion Mike "A-Train" Alstott was known for his grit, power and meticulous work ethic that allowed him to run through defenders to reach the end zone. Even in retirement, Alstott continues to train hard and eat healthy, making him an ideal representative of Complete Nutrition's Mancore brand.
Alstott, 39, personally uses the Mancore 3-Pack testosterone-boosting, growth-hormone-enhancing and fat-burning program and reported losing 15 lbs. in five weeks, gaining muscle, sleeping better and having an increased libido. The Bucs' all-time leader in touchdowns says Mancore helps him stay physically fit despite living a full schedule, which involves raising a family, serving as head coach for the Northside Christian high school football team in St. Petersburg, Fla., and being involved in other business ventures. In addition, Alstott champions the all-around wellness of children and families facing life-altering obstacles through the Mike Alstott Family Foundation.
"Men my age don't realize that our testosterone levels are decreasing, but it's a reality that makes staying fit more difficult," said Alstott. "Guys often have a hard time getting over that initial hump to where they truly see results. I've tried a lot of other supplements and had trouble getting past my plateau until Mancore. Since using Mancore, I've trimmed down immensely and my muscles are more defined. People have even told me I look like I'm still in playing shape."
Mancore 3-Pack, the most comprehensive product in the Mancore line, helps men increase muscle mass, strength and energy, as well as burn fat and improve body composition. The exclusive program contains three complementary products: Total Fat Burn, Testosterone Replenish and HGH Night Spray. These are designed to work in tandem, maximizing the effectiveness of each individual product and helping users look lean and fit.
Total Fat Burn, formulated with naturally occurring synephrine HCl, green coffee bean extract and green tea extract, helps improve body composition, boosts metabolism and increases energy. Testosterone Replenish enhances libido and stamina and replenishes youthful hormones with a blend of testosterone support ingredients, including DHEA. The convenient HGH Night Spray, taken before bedtime, increases growth hormone levels by up to 157 percent and improves sleep quality with its key ingredient, melatonin.
"We are honored to have such a storied NFL role model as part of the Complete Nutrition brand," said Amy Bailey, VP of Marketing for Complete Nutrition. "Mike Alstott is a guy the Mancore demographic can relate to and he's a great inspiration for men across the country to get in shape."
Kicking off the partnership, the official Mancore website, MancoreResults.com, features exclusive content of Alstott such as pictures and quotes, and tips from the football legend on diet, nutrition and exercise. Customers can also visit the site to read about the science behind the products and watch a video on Mancore. Other marketing elements of the partnership include a radio campaign with Alstott endorsing the Mancore line and in-store displays featuring the former NFL fullback.
The entire Mancore line, including the Mancore 3-Pack, individual products and the Mancore Muscle Preserve are available at all Complete Nutrition stores. Visit CompleteNutrition.com to find the nearest store and more information.

One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

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.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
