Double Down On Diabetes

Supporting A Proven Program In Honor Of World Diabetes Day

THOMASVILLE, Ga., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- - You might say that the folks at Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health are 'maximizers.' They seek to build the capacity to educate citizens on Diabetes prevention through community organizations nationwide. With the CDC estimating a whopping 79 million Americans currently having prediabetes, grass roots diabetes prevention education is a must.

Findings presented at this year's American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions® indicated that diabetes prevention programs, like those supported by Emory, not only improve quality of life but also save money. William H. Herman, MD, MPH, Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at the University of Michigan and co-investigator of the DPP Research Group, presented these and other findings at the Scientific Sessions, and is quoted as saying, "This puts diabetes prevention in the category of prenatal care or pediatric immunizations. It's dramatic when an intervention can improve the health of the population and potentially save money at the same time."

In recognition of World Diabetes Day (November 14th) and the great strides being made by Emory's Rollins School of Public Health and its affiliates, Emory partner Blackberry Patch has announced its 'Double Down on Diabetes' promotion, covering World Diabetes Day and the week after (November 14November 20). Harry T. Jones, partner at Blackberry Patch, says, "With every bottle of Sugar Free syrup we sell, we make a donation to Emory." The 'Double Down on Diabetes' promotion effectively doubles the amount of that donation, and will be in place for both the Sugar Free Sweetness and Blackberry Patch brands of Sugar Free syrups produced by Blackberry Patch. When asked why the Blackberry Patch & Sugar Free Sweetness brands support Emory, Mr. Jones advised, "It is an effective means of helping people who are prediabetic to avoid a permanent compromise in their health." Randy Harvey, president, said, "It is our goal to provide delicious, great tasting Sugar Free syrups to all people, making it easier for them to lower their sugar intake without compromising on flavor."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
