SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 -- Oberto, the nation's leading all natural jerky brand, announces former all-pro linebacker, Brian Urlacher, and U.S. Men's National Soccer Team and Seattle Sounders FC member, Clint Dempsey, as the two newest additions to join the Oberto America's PROtein campaign -- a partnership between Oberto and elite athletes and nutrition experts to highlight the benefits of Oberto's all natural, high-in-protein jerky line. Specifically, Oberto and its team of athletes are bringing fans insight into lean protein's role in helping them to get the most out of their bodies.
Urlacher and Dempsey will work with Oberto to encourage fans to select better-for-you snacks, get the most from nutrition and live more active lifestyles. The two will also be prominently featured in campaign creative pieces including point-of-sale and other marketing materials.
"Adding the support of Brian and Clint to our Oberto America's PROtein movement bolsters the brand's presence across more sports and brings our message to more consumers," said Greg Yahn, Vice President of Marketing for Oberto Brands. "This team of top athletes believes in inspiring people to get the most out of themselves by living active lifestyles and snacking better with All Natural Oberto Beef Jerky."
Urlacher and Dempsey join four-time U.S. Grand Prix snowboarding champion, Louie Vito, and celebrity trainer, Harley Pasternak, on the campaign to urge consumers to 'turn over the bag' to check out what they're eating. Their counsel to fans includes seeking minimally processed, all natural foods with no preservatives as well as encouraging them to live a more active lifestyle.
"I'm looking forward to helping people become more aware of their lean protein intake. As a life-long athlete, I understand the significance of protein and how important it is to snack well while training and competing," said Brian Urlacher. "Oberto's all natural jerky offers a convenient way for athletes to get the all-important lean protein snack while on the go."
"Oberto's all natural jerky provides me the protein I need to take on a tough practice and get through a match going into stoppage time," said Clint Dempsey. "Protein plays an important role in my sports nutrition and when I'm looking for a better-for-me type food on the go."
Dempsey is a professional soccer player on the U.S. Men's National Team and the Seattle Sounders FC. He's an attacking midfielder and forward who has served as captain of both teams.
Urlacher is an eight-time all-pro linebacker who retired from football in 2012 after a heralded 13-season career. He is now a football analyst for Fox Sports 1 providing weekly insight and evaluation of the current top players in the game.
Oberto worked with Alcone Marketing Group to create the Oberto America's PROtein campaign. Alcone has coordinated and developed the production of point-of-sale collateral materials, field marketing toolkits, on-going consumer promotions and strategic marketing planning for future activations.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
