NEW YORK CITY, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever since "The Pill" was introduced in 1962, women have been complaining about weight gain. As Hormonal Birth Control (HBC) methods have evolved (from the pill, to the shot, to the ring and the implantable rod) birth control has become convenient, affordable and almost as commonplace as taking an aspirin. But the side effect of weight gain still remains the number one complaint even though most "experts" (they must all be men) claim the birth control/weight gain link is a "myth."
Despite the "expert" opinion, in a recent informal survey about HBC and weight gain, every single woman who responded said they gained weight when they started HBC. More than a few said they keep changing their birth control method or completely stopped because the weight gain wasn't worth the trade-off. The general consensus was: "If you're using some form of HBC you've either gained a bunch of weight and can't seem to get it off, or you're in the process of gaining weight and fighting like hell to minimize the damage." In other words, complaints of increased appetite, sugar cravings and diet failure just won't go away. So much for "expert" opinion.
Dr. Amy Heaton, Ph.D., Director of Scientific Affairs for Covaxil Laboratories®, explained that differences between the results of clinical investigations and actual life experiences are not uncommon. But there is a definite connection between the use of hormone-based birth control methods and weight gain. Dr. Heaton points to a study published in The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology that discussed the relationship between "The Pill" and a satiety (appetite-controlling) hormone called cholecystokinin (pronounced Kola-sisto-ky-nin), or CCK.
This hormone plays a huge role in telling our brains that we're full, satisfied, and ready to stop eating. But birth control seems to cause our CCK levels to drop or not respond as well as they should. And, if we are using hormone-based birth control, an alteration in CCK response can make us more likely to crave sweets, binge eat, and — of course — gain weight, with a corresponding increase in body fat. Ugh.
So when the connection between a clinically validated weight-control compound and its association with established CCK response parameters was recently revealed, it created quite a stir. This is really exciting because the weight-loss compound had been shown in previous studies to suppress appetite, automatically decrease the desire for high-fat, high-sweet foods (you know, everything that's super tasty), and resulted in significant weight loss without forcing people to follow some stringent "diet" or exercise plan.
Finally, there's a weight-control compound specifically developed to counteract weight gain caused by hormonal-based contraceptives. It's called Vitona™-hC. And, as an extra bonus, this CCK-oriented formula not only works to ﬁght the weight gain associated with HBC methods, it also contains a specialized compound that gives you a burst of energy, increases your metabolism and even boosts your mood... which means you'll not only be able to lose weight, you'll also ﬁnd yourself getting through the day with a great big smile on your face!
So where can you get Vitona? That might be a little problem. Because it takes a long time for a new product to get widespread distribution, you won't be able to go looking for Vitona at your local Target Store just yet (the anticipated distribution date is November of 2014). But not to worry… if hormonal-based birth control is causing you to gain weight in all the wrong places, you can get Vitona directly from Covaxil Labs by calling 1-800-841-8478 or visiting www.VitonaUSA.com. Vitona will run you about $49 (approx. 30-day supply). Use the promo code VITONA3 at checkout and get free shipping!*

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
