Fitness First picks Nutanix ahead of HP and VMware for private cloud

Posted: March 31, 2015 at 5:46 pm


Global health club Fitness First has picked Nutanix's hyper-converged infrastructure to build a private Microsoft-based cloud to run the company's IT - beating alternatives from VMware and HP.

Jon Forster, global programme manager for data centre migration and disaster recovery at the keep-fit chain, attributed the decision partly to Nutanix's "solid user base", as well as its technology.

Forster said he was brought into the company to determine where it should go with its hosting technologies and architecture. He said that he wanted to ensure that the technologies incorporated simplicity, flexibility and low costs as part of the company's global data centre migration programme.

The company, which has one million customers across 370 clubs in 16 countries, has three global data centres - one in Amsterdam and two in Australia.

"All of the production services run on 'physical tin' and the non-production [services] run on a mix of physical, and either Hyper-V or VMware. It was a classic hardware server-SAN [storage area network] type set-up, but it wasn't ticking any of the three principles I outlined, particularly around the flexibility that the business needed," Forster told Computing.

"If you want to stand up a server, and if it's a new bit of tin, it takes a lot of time. It's complicated, you have to think about how big it will be in three years' time," he added.

After undertaking a comprehensive overview of the apps that Fitness First was using, Forster said that it was clear it was a Microsoft house, so he put forward the idea that the business should standardise on Microsoft technologies. This would mean that its operating system, database and hypervisor layer - which was provided by VMware - would all be Microsoft-based.

The next step for Forster was to look at cloud-based technologies. He said that a completely cloud-based set-up was looked at it, but wasn't seen as being cost-effective and didn't allow the company the type of control it wanted over its architecture.

"We wanted to have our own on-premise cloud, and we certainly wanted to be virtualised, but to have a hybrid cloud was seen as the best solution from a cost and flexibility perspective," he said.

After this decision was made, Forster had to consider what the best underlying architecture to support a hybrid cloud would be. He said that the solution had to co-exist with Microsoft's Hyper-V utility and Azure public cloud, as well as helping to simplify the amount of technologies Fitness First had in place.

Fitness Truths: speed training for endurance

Posted: at 5:46 pm


Fitness expert Jean-Claude Vacassin focuses on exercising more efficiently over longer distances this week. How? By working on strength and speed

Endurance training is as popular as ever, with more and more of us looking for a fitness challenge that will push us physically and also provide us with a clear training focus, which plays a massive part in keeping us motivated.

Whether you're training for a 10km run, a marathon or a triathlon event, covering the miles and doing the baseline endurance work is a key part of your training, but including some specific speed would be hugely beneficial also.

READ: Three ways to boost your endurance training

The stronger and faster that we become, the more efficient we will become over the longer distances, which means that not only will our times come down, but we're also much more likely to enjoy the process, as we will see improvements and will get better at it.

But how do we go about getting faster and what are the specific exercises and approaches that we can employ to help us get there? Here are my five key points to you go faster.

1. Get stronger

The stronger and more explosive you are, the more force you will generate, and the faster you will be. You don't need to training like a competitive weight lifter, but strength training in the gym, coupled with some plyometric exercises, such as medicine ball throws, are essential if you want to get faster. Core training, specific hip strengthening and single leg exercises are hugely important also, so be sure to include these. And don't be afraid to lift some heavier weights, as this is where you will see the most strength gains.

2. Get leaner

Study: Face scan alone enough to calculate biological age

Posted: at 5:43 pm


SHANGHAI, March 31 (UPI) -- Scientists in China say they can calculate a person's biological age using only an image of their face, using a new image-scanning technology and computer algorithm.

Biological age, as opposed to chronological age, is a measure of how well or poorly a person's body is aging. Biological age is a physiological measurement, offering an estimate as to how quickly or slowly a person's body is breaking down -- showing (on the inside and outside) the effects of time.

Researchers created their aging analysis system by scanning more than 300 faces, including the faces of people as young as 17 and as old as 77. The technology, able to pick to slightest of contour changes in a person's face, was able to plot a trajectory of biological aging. Newly scanned faces are compared against this trajectory.

As the plotted trajectory shows, there are a range of changes that occur on an aging face. Noses become enlarged. Wrinkles manifest themselves. Eyes corners begin to sag. Gravity slowly but surely takes its toll.

"I did not expect to see such remarkable changes with age, nor did I expect the 3D images to be such a good biomarker for biological age," study leader Jing-Dong Han, a researcher at the the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shanghai, told the Guardian. "They turned out to be as accurate as the most accurate marker to date."

After programming the technology, researchers found the algorithm always placed a person's biological age within six years of their chronological age. Han and his colleagues tested the blood of people who showed the most difference between the two ages.

They found people whose facial age was accelerated also exhibited biomarkers associated with pronounced or faster aging. They found the opposite for those deemed to look younger.

"The predicted fast agers do have more accelerated aging blood profiles, and vice versa for the slower agers," Han added.

As all of the study participants were Chinese, additional research is needed to determine whether the technology will work with other ethnic groups.

Researchers say the technology could eventually be used to determine whether anti-aging creams and treatments are successful or not.

Agein Corporation Announces Top Tips for Dealing with Spring Allergies

Posted: at 5:43 pm


(PRWEB) March 31, 2015

Agein.com, the Internets premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is announcing its top tips for dealing with allergies as the unseasonably cold winter gives way to warmer spring weather.

After a long, brutal winter, most people are looking forward to spring. But for those who suffer from allergies, the arrival of spring brings a whole new set of physical challenges, says Dr. Kevin J. McLaughlin, Agein.coms anti-aging and health and wellness specialist. An estimated 50 million Americans, or one in five, suffer from all types of allergies. And the number is growing: the prevalence of allergies has been increasing since the early 1980s across every age, gender, and racial group. (Source: Allergy Facts And Figures, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America web site; http://www.aafa.org/display.cfm?id=9&sub=30#_ftnref1, last accessed March 30, 2015.)

This years spring allergy season could be especially severe; the long, wet winter is expected to translate into high pollen counts. This spring, Americans could experience extra-itchy eyes, a scratchy throat, and more coughing and sneezing than usual. Whats more, there is also concern that hay fever symptoms could actually be pointing to an allergic reaction to snow mould; in fact, mould allergies and allergic rhinitis, often called hay fever, affect about 10% to 20% of the population. (Source: Westall, R., Allergies in spring? Snow mould may be to blame, CBC web site, March 20, 2015; http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/allergies-in-spring-snow-mould-may-be-to-blame-1.3001356.)

The most widespread allergen in the spring is pollen. When plants are under stress after a harsh winter, they make more flowers and fewer leaves; this results in more pollen, Dr. McLaughlin adds. Unfortunately, there are no cures for allergies. However, allergies can be managed with proper prevention and treatment.

According to Dr. McLaughlin, there are many simple spring skin care tips that can help allergy sufferers deal with allergy-related itchiness. For starters, cotton fabrics dont irritate the skin as much as other fabrics; antihistamines can also help bring down the inflammation. But one of the most essential spring skin care tips to fight dry, irritated skin is a moisturizer; even better is one that doubles as an effective wrinkle fighter and uses advanced ingredients like Argireline, Matrixyl 3000, and Alpine rose stem cell extract.

Inflammation can also cause itchy eyes, but rubbing can lead to dark circles and puffy bags under the eyes, he explains. If someone prefers natural eye care remedies for springtime allergies, cucumbers, a cold towel, or chilled herbal tea bags over the eyes have all been shown to help reduce puffiness and dark circles; they may help to reduce itchiness, too.

It also helps to use an eye cream every day because its formulated specially for sensitive skin, Dr. McLaughlin concludes. Eye creams that contain cutting-edge ingredients, including Alpine rose stem cell extract with proteins like Argireline and advanced peptide technology, help renew delicate skin around the eyes for visibly smoother, more radiant skin.

Bellevue family donates $6M to UW for Alzheimer's research

Posted: at 10:49 pm


A Bellevue family that lost three members to Alzheimer's disease has donated $6 million to the University of Washington to advance cutting-edge research into the devastating and incurable brain disorder.

Officials with the Ellison Foundation and UW Medicine announced the gift Friday, saying the new funding will kick off a $20 million project focusing on a rare, precision-medicine approach to the disease.

"This is a major, major public-health need," said Dr. Thomas Montine, director of the UW's Alzheimer's Disease Research Center. "The goal is to treat the right patient with the right treatment at the right time."

The funds will help pay for expanded use of exome sequencing, which analyzes patients' genes to determine potential markers of Alzheimer's risk; new research into using patients' own stem cells to test drugs that can stop the disease; and assessing use of a tool known as functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI, to detect changes in the brain before dementia occurs.

UW officials hope the resources will help recruit a top scientist, too, to lead the clinical-trials team that will eventually test candidate drugs in humans.

The UW's Alzheimer's center is marking its 30th anniversary. It's one of 30 Alzheimer's Disease Research Centers designated by the National Institute on Aging and the only one so far to focus on precision medicine, Montine said. Hundreds of patients from the Seattle area and across the country have participated in nearly 100 clinical trials, according to a federal website.

But for Tom Ellison, 58, president of the $50 million family foundation that focuses on health and poverty issues, the donation was as much about emotion as investment.

"I and my family have had entirely too much experience with the disease," he said.

Ellison's dad, William "Bill" Ellison, was the founder of Savers Inc., the firm that operates the thrift-store chain Value Village and others. He died in 2008 at age 79, more than a decade after first showing symptoms.

Ellison's uncle, Herbert J. Ellison, was a prominent UW professor and one of the world's leading figures in Soviet and post-Soviet studies, and served as a consultant to President Reagan. He died in 2012 at age 83 after a swift decline from his formerly brilliant intellect, Tom Ellison said.
