Top Athletes Bring Locker Room Strategy To GamePlan4Me Multi-Platform Initiative

Tamika Catchings, Victor Cruz, Mark Herzlich, Keyshawn Johnson, Dikembe Mutombo, Sanya Richards-Ross, CC Sabathia, Bill Walton and Michelle Wie Share Personal Stories of Success

NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On February 6, 2014, the mobile app and interactive website GamePlan4Me.com will launch with videos of top American athletes telling their own stories of success.  In an effort to bring awareness to the importance of planning for the future, the athletes share their personal experiences about how having a game plan helped them achieve their goals in competition, their careers, personal lives and health.  Champions who have brought their locker room strategy to the website include: Tamika Catchings, Victor Cruz, Mark Herzlich, Keyshawn Johnson, Dikembe Mutombo, Sanya Richards-Ross, CC Sabathia, Bill Walton and Michelle Wie.  Additional high profile athlete videos and messages will be added to the effort each week. 

George Pyne, business leader and entrepreneur, David Kristal, founder and chief executive officer of Augeo, and Juan Sabater, Latino entrepreneur, are leading the private initiative and collaboration among top athletes, sports executives and industry leaders with the goal of creating a non-political and engaging experience that will help visitors as they make decisions about their life and health.  

"Taking personal responsibility for one's actions is a goal that GamePlan4Me hopes to instill in visitors to this site. To hear Mark Herzlich talk about overcoming cancer, or Keyshawn Johnson explain that as a young man 'he was going to be successful no matter what' can give people the courage to stay focused and move forward," stated George Pyne. "The athletes who have given their time to be involved in this initiative understand how hard work and planning have made a significant difference in their lives."

In addition to a growing number of stories from top athletes, GamePlan4Me also includes interactive games, facts on health topics and links to informational sites.

"GamePlan4Me was conceived and created by a talented team of professionals who want to stimulate people to think about their health and well-being," commented David Kristal. "Encouraging young Latinos to understand healthcare options is vital to the continued success of our community," added Juan Sabater. Kristal continued, "We hope to encourage young people to plan for what they know today and prepare for what they cannot predict tomorrow. If young Americans learn about and take responsibility for their health related options, we all win."

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two.

With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components.

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 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?
