The amazing ways to regulate your Clenbuterol cycle

Clenbuterol is one of the most widely used and medically influential drugs that have proved to be extremely effective in earlier times when it was used as a bronchodilator. The compound acts as a beta-2 agonist and thus helps in relieving people suffering from breathing problems like asthma by acting as a decongestant. In other words, it can be said that Clenbuterol clears out the blockages in the respiratory tract in order to ease out the flow of oxygenated air through the lungs. In many countries, this side of Clenbuterol is known by people. But do you know that it is equally beneficial as a dietary supplementation product for rapid weight loss? It is never even thought for a compound that helps in curing bronchospastic disorders in individuals. The common usage of clenbuterol in the recent times is as an extremely strong fat burner, without being a steroid by nature. Yes it is true that Clenbuterol is not a steroidal substance, which clears out the doubts of so many people with the misconception.

How is the dosage cycle of Clenbuterol?

One of the biggest problems associated with Clenbuterol is its half life. It has a lengthy half life of 35 hours. Again there is a misconception related to the half life of Clenbuterol as well. Many people have the idea that half life of Clen is 48 hours which is hypothetical or not true. Due to this issues the Food and Drug Administration has not approved its use for clinical purposes, since longer half life of a chemical substance is associated with increased risks of health hazards. The dosing calendar for weight loss of Clenbuterol varies from person to person depending upon:

  1. Genetic makeup of the individual (selection of gender)
  2. Age
  3. Composition of body (muscular, slender or lean)
  4. Predisposition to any medically serious health problems like elevated blood pressure levels or diabetes
  5. Any medical history that talks about any sort of allergic reactions or irritation caused due to ingestion of exogenous pills or tablets

A generalised idea of clenbuterol dosage calendar will show you that the initial concentration or dose strength of the compound is taken less and then, it is gradually raised according to the effects that the user is getting in the concerned time. The recommended Clen cycle lasts for 4 to 8 weeks (approximately 2 months).

What are the dose strengths available commercially?

Clenbuterol is marketed under various brand names as well as forms, which is important for you to know when you are planning about administering the particular product. There are oral tablet forms of Clenbuterol that comes in various standardised strengths of 20 mcg, 40 mcg, 50 mcg, 60 mcg, 100 mcg and 200 mcg.

Apart from this, you will also find injectable forms of Clenbuterol, as Clen pump called Ventipulmin, spray pens, liquid syrups, inhalers (bronchodilator) and even in bulk powder form. The general dosing calendar for weight loss suggests that you should not take more than 4 to 8 capsules in a day (for men) and 2 to 4 tablets for females.

Microsoft acquires container platform Deis from Engine Yard

Microsoft today announced that it has acquired Deis, the company behind some of the most popular tools for building and managing applications on top of the Google-incubated Kubernetes container orchestration service. The companies did not disclose the price of the acquisition.

It’s worth noting that Engine Yard acquired Deis back in 2015, so while Microsoft doesn’t mention this in today’s announcement, it is acquiring Deis directly from Engine Yard.

While Microsoft’s Azure Container Service is agnostic and supports all the major container orchestration frameworks, like Mesos and Docker Swarm, Kubernetes is quickly becoming the de facto standard and with this move, Microsoft is also increasing its investment in it. Containers, after all, are quickly changing the way companies build and deploy their applications, and Microsoft obviously has every intention to stay on top of this trend.

“At Microsoft, we’ve seen explosive growth in both interest and deployment of containerized workloads on Azure, and we’re committed to ensuring Azure is the best place to run them,” Microsoft’s executive VP for its cloud and enterprise group Scott Guthrie writes today. “To support this vision, we’re pleased to announce that Microsoft has signed an agreement to acquire Deis — a company that has been at the center of the container transformation.”

 The acquisition is clearly about the tech, but given how hard it is to find and hire the right talent for building Kubernetes-centric services (there simply aren’t enough developers on the market), this move also brings into Microsoft a lot of new talent with deep knowledge of Kubernetes.

Deis provides three core open-source tools for managing Kubernetes deployments: Workflow, a platform for developers and operations teams to easily deploy and manage containerized apps; the Kubernetes package manager Helm; and Steward, a Kubernetes-native service broker (which basically allows applications to talk to each other). Like similar companies, its business model relies on providing paid support and training for these applications.

The team will continue to work on these open-source tools, which are currently in use by the likes of Mozilla, CloudMine and SocialRadar. Indeed, Microsoft’s Guthrie notes that “the Deis team brings a depth of open source technology experience — furthering Microsoft’s commitments to improve developer productivity and to provide choice and flexibility for our customers everywhere.”

Lucid raises $60M as it plans to dominate market research

Lucid is announcing that it has raised a $60 million round led by North Bridge Growth Equity. It’s the company’s first outside funding since raising a relatively tiny $2.8 million back in 2011.

Founder and CEO Patrick Comer said that in the years between, he deliberately wanted Lucid to “run really, really lean and pour every dollar into growth of product.” Now, however, it’s no longer a question of finding product-market fit — the company says it’s used by more than 500 customers and that revenue has grown 70 percent year-over-year for the past three years.

“Once we move from a position of, ‘What is our product? Is it going to work and will our clients buy it?’ and now that it’s a global scale issue, then we can fund that scale through raising capital,” Comer said. “Because the market is already there — we built it.”

For Lucid, scale means expanding globally, where Comer said he wants to turn the company into the number one player in market research. He said the company’s surveys have international reach, but that’s mostly been thanks to US companies thinking globally. Now, Lucid is looking to establish a presence of its own in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (it already has offices in London and Delhi).

The company was originally known as Federated Sample but rebranded as Lucid in 2015 as its offerings expanded to include products like Fulcrum, its automated sample marketplace. Comer described Lucid as the market industry’s “programmatic disruptor” — by providing an automated way to test ads and survey consumers, he said the company is giving marketers access to unprecedented “speed and scale.”

 “With programmatic [advertising], you could target the right impression with the right message, but you could never test the message with the right audience,” Comer said.

That doesn’t put Lucid in competition with companies like Survey Monkey and Qualtrics, he added. Instead, they can use Lucid to find the audience to take the surveys on their platforms.

Comer also suggested that this round should encourage venture capitalists to take a closer look at New Orleans, where Lucid is headquartered.

“People ask the question: Can you build a category defining unicorn outside of the coasts?” he said. “The answer is yes.”

All of our parents want to see us in a stable position in life, some or the other day. In India, most of the parents want to see their children as either a Doctor or an Engineer. In order to acquire a seat in the colleges of Engineering or Medical there is a need of appearing in the competitive exams. CBSE or the Central Board of Secondary Education conducts the examinations for Engineering and Medical.

JEE or Joint Entrance Examination is meant for the Engineering aspirants and NEET or National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is for the Medical aspirants.

This article aims at the keypoints that a student must ensure while preparing for NEET 2017. As there are only a few weeks left for the exams, the students are advised to follow the simple and easy steps in order to crack NEET 2017.

Try to make notes of the important topics and start preparing using that. Follow NCERT books for clearing all the doubts as well as try to follow some reference books too.
  6. Practice is a must: Practice makes a man perfect. It is evident from the fact that whoever practices and works hard achieves success. Try to practice mock papers and Previous year question papers to have a better understanding about the questions that come in the Exams.
  7. Work hard on the weaknesses: One mistake that all of us do is that we avoid those topics that we are weak in, but the fact is that we must try to improve on our weak areas as there may be some topics that the student is weak in but that may comprise of a greater number of marks in the question papers.

Amazon will live stream 10 NFL games this season, replacing Twitter

Amazon has reportedly reached a deal with the NFL to stream 10 Thursday Night Football games this year, the company confirmed to TechCrunch.

The one-year deal is reportedly valued at around $50 million.

Last season Twitter had a one-year, $10 million deal with the league to also stream 10 Thursday Night Football games. When that deal was announced it was reported that Twitter beat out other companies like Amazon, Facebook and Verizon for the rights to the broadcasts.

Viewers will have to be Amazon Prime members in order to watch live, which is a departure from last year’s deal where games were available free for anyone on Twitter.

 However, like last year, the games will also be available each week on cable TV, alternating between CBS, NBC and NFL Network.

It’s not yet clear how Amazon will display the stream. While viewership for Twitter’s live streams were actually decent last season, many complained about how Twitter displayed the stream next to a timeline of tweets that distracted from the game.

We’re waiting on more details from Amazon and will update this post when we get them.

AdAsia, an ambitious one-year-old ad tech startup, raises $12M for expansion

AdAsia, a one-year-old online advertising startup based in Singapore, has closed a $12 million Series A round from Japanese investor JAFCO.

The company was founded in April 2016 by CEO Kosuke Sogo, the former managing director of Japan’s MicroAd in APAC, and COO Otohiko Kozutsumi, who had been with MicroAd Vietnam. It offers a single digital platform that integrates elements such as real-time buying, social targeting, and large exchanges like Adwords, DoubleClick and Facebook. It also offers solutions for video and mobile, and runs an influencer marketing program.

Despite just a year of operations, Sogo told TechCrunch that AdAsia is already profitable. He said the company grossed $12 million in sales between April and December 2016, growing at 20-30 percent each month. This year, it is targeting $30 million in annual revenue, and it currently serves 300 clients.

AdAsia is headquartered in Singapore with offices in Taiwan, Cambodia, Vietnam (two), Indonesia, and Thailand. The company plans to use this new funding to expand into China (Shanghai), Hong Kong, the Philippines, Malaysia and Japan this year. It currently has a total headcount of around 80 staff, which Sogo, who turns 30 this year, said is forecast to grow to 400 before the end of next year.

On the tech side, the Series A will be used to develop AdAsia’s machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities within current and future ad products by establishing a development center in Vietnam.

 “We want to gain a big market share in our bid to become the biggest advertising technology company in Asia, and this funding will only strengthen our push,” Sogo said in a statement.

While growing market share in Southeast Asia, where the concept of digital ad spend is still in its infancy, is one thing, trying to take a bite out of China, a more saturated market, is an altogether harder challenge. Sogo readily accepted that market domination in China is unlikely but he believes his company can “can get some marketshare [and] generate revenue” by integrating with big players like Tencent.

The ambitious company is already weighing up potential exit options, too. Sogo suggested that Hong Kong or his native Japan could be ideal markets for an IPO in 2019, or perhaps even as soon as next year. He didn’t rule out the possibility of going public in the U.S., but told TechCrunch that the firm would “have to think about it.”
