LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On a single day in 2013, renowned weight loss specialist Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. operated on mother Crystal Colone and her two daughters at Marina Del Rey Hospital, remaking three lives within the span of a few short hours. That amazing day will be documented on TV's "The Doctors" on Monday, February 24, with an astonishing gastric sleeve surgery video that has already generated considerable buzz. Daughters Candra, 19, and Clarissa, 20, underwent the gastric sleeve procedure. Crystal, 34, underwent the lap band revision to gastric sleeve. The results have been spectacular.
As of this writing, Candra and Clarissa have collectively lost more than 125 pounds. Crystal is now finally at her ideal weight after years of disappointment and distress following an earlier failed procedure performed by another surgeon. All three women are looking forward to vastly more healthy and fulfilled lives thanks to Dr. Feiz's minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures.
Like their mom, both Clarissa and Candra had been struggling with morbid obesity for years without any real success. The sisters endured multiple physical problems ranging from such vascular issues as severe sleep apnea and asthma – making proper sleep and exercise all but impossible – to hypertension and pre-diabetes. Both young women had also experienced intense bullying, leading Candra to opt for home-schooling during middle school and high school, while Clarissa responded with sometimes aggressive behavior.
Meanwhile, the lap band surgery Crystal received from another physician in 2006 had produced gastric distress and disappointing results. By 2013, the post-operative issues had worsened to the point where a medical intervention was definitely required. Dr. Feiz suggested converting the unsuccessful operation into a gastric sleeve procedure, an operation that has produced reliable results for countless patients.
As of this writing, daughters Candra and Clarissa are feeling better and far more energetic than ever as both are now able to exercise and sleep properly, while their blood pressure and blood sugar issues have been completely reversed. They've also become far more socially active. Clarissa has started a serious relationship with her new boyfriend, while Candra looks forward to perhaps wearing a bikini this summer.
After overcoming some initial surgical side-effects following the new surgery, 5'5" Crystal has also experienced spectacular results and is now 90 pounds lighter than her initial pre-surgical weight of 250 pounds. Largely thanks to her improved health and motivation, the longtime working mother has been able to acquire a new job at double her prior rate of pay.
The Colones and Dr. Feiz are proud and extremely excited that millions of viewers will have the opportunity to learn about their weight loss procedures because of the episode of "The Doctors" that premieres on February 24th. They hope that even more people will discover how they can escape the trap of obesity and begin new lives thanks to today's highly advanced and very safe surgical procedures.
As Southern California's best known and most respected bariatric surgeon, Dr. Feiz regularly performs such procedures as sleeve gastrectomy in Bakersfield, Beverly Hills, Valencia, Rancho Cucamonga, Huntington Beach and throughout Southern California.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
