MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the promotion of two leaders last week: Tom Chestnut was appointed Senior Vice President of the foundation's global food division and Chandana Kathuria is the new Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer/Lean Program Leader. Chestnut and Kathuria both bring many years of experience to their respective new jobs. Chestnut has worked for over 25 years in the food safety field, is a co-founder of the Food Safety Leadership Council and was awarded Industry Sanitarian of the Year by the National Environmental Health Association. Kathuria led the Discovery Technologies Program as well as the Discovery Research Informatics & Global Program Management before joining NSF eleven years ago.
The National Science Foundation is a US government agency headquartered in Arlington, Virgina. It was formed in 1950 and supports education and research in all non-medical fields of science. Aside from funding and supporting the research projects of individuals or mid-scale research centers across the entire country, the NSF plays a crucial role in the supervision of safety and quality standards in the dietary food industry. Due to the increasing focus on a healthy lifestyle, dietary supplements are more popular than ever. This opens at the same time the doors for low-quality, or even dangerous products that are being sold to unsuspecting customers. In an effort to not only sell high-quality products, but also give customers assurance and the peace of mind that they can safely consume supplements, Niwali Test-O-Boost Health Store decided to procure products from a NSF-certified laboratory.
Thanks to this certificate, Niwali will be able to guarantee customers that the certified products underwent a toxicology and formulation review, were tested for contaminants and were produced in compliance with good manufacturing practices. Before a product receives the certificate, NSF carries out a product evaluation through a third-party laboratory and inspects the manufacturing facility. For Niwali this is another step towards their goal of providing customers with constantly improving, high-quality products. Only recently the company announced a major change in their product range by switching from gelatin capsules to vegetable caps. While the active ingredients remain the same, consumers have now the added advantage of a healthier shell that even vegans can swallow without any reasons for concern.
The ingredients that Niwali Test-O-Boost Health Store uses for its supplements are based on natural remedies and the wisdom of century-old knowledge about plants and herbs from Chinese, Ayurvedic and even Shamanic medicine which are used in their extensive portfolio, including products for weight management, cleansing & detox, disease fighting, immune boosters, personal care and vitamins & supplements. A great example is the company's signature product, Advanced Test-O-Boost, a popular muscle mass booster for men, which works by increasing the testosterone levels. While many comparable supplements revert to chemicals, the scientists that developed Advanced Test-O-Boost explored the effects that natural ingredients have on the human body. The result is a formula that contains Tribulus Terrestrics, L-Arginine and even Ginseng, providing an amazing boost and scientifically proven effectiveness through these powerful natural ingredients.

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...
