ENERGYbits® Pays Tribute to Athletes Competing at Sochi 2014 Winter Games with Video Contest #itsOKtoSwallow

BOSTON, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ENERGYbits® announces its #itsOKtoSwallow campaign and contest to honor athletes competing at Sochi 2014 Winter Games. The contest name not only illustrates how to take ENERGYbits® algae tabs (they're best swallowed) but also pays tribute to athletes competing at this year's Winter Games in Sochi. Athletes take a leap of faith when they pursue their dream to compete at the Olympic Games. It's a path full of pain and years of training so they swallow hard before making the commitment. The ENERGYbits® campaign #itsOKtoSwallow may be playful but it also recognizes the courage it takes to work hard to make a dream come true and reminds us that it's OK to Dream Big.

No one understands dreaming big and starting small more than ENERGYbits® Inc. (www.energybits.com). This tiny sports nutrition startup from Boston, MA sells algae tabs, a high-protein, plant-based fuel loved by runners and athletes. The company's determination and "I think I can" approach is one that is shared by Olympic athletes and has propelled ENERGYbits® to be at this year's Winter Games alongside world class athletes and billion dollar companies. Just like athletes, ENERGYbits® has worked hard to grow strong and build credibility. This year they reached a tipping point with so many Olympic athletes endorsing them, they decided it was time to make the leap to the world stage and be with their athletes at the Games.

Algae has been sold in the USA and Canada for fifty years, and is not only prized by Olympic athletes but also elite groups like NASA, the United Nations and Carnegie Institute, all of whom endorse algae as the most nutritionally dense food in the world. And no wonder. Algae boasts the highest concentration of nutrients (40) and the highest concentration of protein (64%) in the world (three times that of steak).

ENERGYbits® is the first company to build algae into a national nutrition brand for the North American market.  Olympic and professional athletes wanting to improve their performance were the first to embrace ENERGYbits® tabs whose plant based fuel has quickly become a "must have" for all endurance athletes, fitness enthusiasts, families, busy executives, and consumers wanting to improve their health and energy, naturally and easily, but without caffeine, sugar, chemicals, gluten or stomach distress. Just swallow a handful and go.

If you're going to the Winter Games this year, look for the ENERGYbits® team who will be in Sochi giving away samples and "its OK to Swallow" swag. Regardless of whether you are in Sochi for the Games or watching them from home, be sure to enter the ENERGYbits #itsOKtoSwallow video contest. All you need to do is 1) submit a fifteen second video showing how you take your bits; 2) post your video on Instagram or Twitter; 3) tag it with #itsOKtoswallow, @energybits (or email it to [email protected]).  Each valid video entry will be posted on http://www.pinterest.com/energybits/itsoktoswallow-videos. Submissions will be accepted until February 28, and winners will be announced March 2nd 2014 on www.twitter.com/energybits and www.facebook.com/energybits. Prizes of ENERGYbits® tabs and "itsOKtoSwallow" swag will be awarded for multiple categories including: most liked video; most original video; funniest video; most people in a video; best athlete video; best non-athlete video; staff favorite, and more!  

If you haven't tried ENERGYbits® yet, you are sure to be pleasantly surprised. Made from just one ingredient -organically grown, NON-GMO spirulina, these tiny "bits-of-food" that you swallow are sure to make you feel so great, you may want to leap over tall buildings in a single bound. But ENERGYbits® suggests you leave that to the guys in the blue tights and red capes, or the athletes in Sochi.

ENERGYbits® Inc. is a sports nutrition company owned by Bits of Health Inc., a five year old nutraceuticals company based in Boston, MA, USA. ENERGYbits® Inc. sells algae tabs to professional and amateur sports, runners, fitness enthusiasts and consumers.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. 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...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy. This is why collaboration between development and operations, or DevOps, has become IT’s number one priority. Whether you are in Dev or Ops, understanding how to implement a DevOps strategy can deliver faster development cycles, improved software quality, reduced deployment times and overall better experiences for your customers.
Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle. This impacts the ability to deliver high quality software at the needed velocity to drive positive business outcomes. In his session at @DevOpsSummit 19th Cloud Expo, Eric Robertson, General Manager at CollabNet, will show how customers are able to achieve a level of transparency that enables everyon...
