Sugar Impact Diet Review Exposes JJ Virgin's New Book On Losing Weight Oct 21, 2014 11:10PM

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 21, 2014

Sugar Impact Diet has now been released after much anticipation by health and fitness enthusiasts worldwide. JJ Virgin, New York Times bestselling author of The Virgin Diet and one of the country's leading fitness and nutrition experts, created this new book to help people become aware of how harmful sugar can be to one's diet. Most people don't realize the impact certain foods with sugar have on their body.

After a quick Sugar Impact Diet review, Shane Michaels, a health and fitness connoisseur, agrees with JJ that certain sugar foods are not good for consumption and make people feel miserable physically and emotionally. "I've noticed when I cut out certain foods that JJ talks about in her book, I not only look better, I also feel better, have more energy and feel good about myself."

Most people would agree that sugar is overly consumed by most, but very few realize the impact sugar has on the body and as Virgin explains in her newest book, could be the real cause of inflammation, bloating, metabolic disorders, fatigue and weight gain. It's no secret that sugar plays a role in energy storage and weight gain. But what most don't realize is that these 7 common foods – grains, roots, fruit, low-fat and no-fat diet and dairy foods, sugary sauces and condiments, alcohol and sugary drinks, and natural and artificial sweeteners all contain these hidden sugars.

As one reads this book and gains knowledge of how these foods work at a molecular level, the Sugar Impact Diet will change the way people think about eating sugar. This is a two week, low sugar diet designed to retrain our taste buds to recognize the sugar in foods. It's also designed to heal any digestive problems that might exist, boost metabolism, and encourage immediate weight loss. It also helps fight off most chronic and inflammatory illnesses.

Daniel G. Amen, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life said, "JJ Virgin's Sugar Impact Diet can help save your brain and your life. Numerous studies show that sugar can be addictive and pro-inflammatory and lead to a number of devastating illnesses. If you want a better brain, I highly recommend this book."

As a bonus, JJ is also giving away the Virgin Diet Cookbook that has never been published before with updates to the original Virgin Diet book. These are some of JJ's best recipes taken from the community of followers from the Virgin Diet.

Those looking to get some delicious recipes along with ways to lose weight and feel better should go here now to order JJ Virgins Sugar Impact Diet and receive the cookbook as a special bonus.

Lextar's Flat Panel Light LEAFIA Wins Japan Good Design Award 2014 Oct 21, 2014 11:09PM

HSINCHU, Oct. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lextar Electronics Corp. (TAIEX: 3698, "Lextar" or the "Company), a vertically-integrated LED company from Taiwan, debuted an ultra slim flat panel LED luminaire, LEAFIA, with a thickness of only 8mm and has been named a winner in Japan's Good Design Award 2014. This is the fourth time Lextar has received recognition from the award. Lextar will unveil LEAFIA at the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair taking place during October 27-30, 2014.

LEAFIA, named after its leaf-like thinness, has broken through the barrier of luminaire. Adopting edge-lit LED technology, LEAFIA has reduced thickness by over 80% to reach 8mm, creating a sense of lightness and loftiness when hung from the ceiling. Lextar has taken its backlight technology up to a whole new level, using light guide plates with a special microstructural optical design to overcome the space constraint of mixed lighting. The result is soft, smooth lighting with ultra low glare of UGR<19 suitable for the office or reading room. LEAFIA's simple and low-key style helps it blend in with various types of interior design, and with its appealing seamless frame finish, LEAFIA is a work of art integrating wisdom in optics, mechanics, aesthetics, and craftsmanship, and therefore is well worth the applause by the Japan design industry.

"Given enthusiastic responses to Lextar's panel light fixtures, this time LEAFIA creates a new market of design fixtures where value innovation is raised ahead of industry, and will be marketed by European luminaire brands," said Francis Wong, the director from Lighting BU of Lextar. This prestigious Good Design award demonstrates Lextar's high capabilities of industrial design and technology development. Prior to this, Lextar's product design team has also won various recognitions including iF and Red Dot awards from Germany, IDEA from the US, Good Design Award from Japan, and domestic Taiwan Excellence and Golden Pin award, all of the mentioned lifting the values that few players in the industry offered.

Artesyn Embedded Technologies Announces ATCA(R) Breakthrough: Successfully Tests First 100G Technology Oct 21, 2014 11:05PM

HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/21/14 -- Artesyn Embedded Technologies announced the successful testing of the industry's first 100G ATCA technology. This breakthrough will for the first time enable bandwidth-hungry next-generation applications in software defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) deployments to achieve up to 4 Tb/s aggregate throughput in a single open standards-based bladed server system. Working with connector manufacturer, ERNI, Artesyn has developed the critical technology components -- the connector and backplane -- that enable 100 Gb/s Ethernet connectivity in an ATCA shelf. The technology will be available in Artesyn's Centellis" 8000 series systems later in the year and the first applications set to take advantage of this breakthrough are SDN/NFV network security and optimization, where deep packet inspection techniques are used to process massive data flows in real time.

Artesyn is implementing an innovative QuadStar" backplane architecture to provide four independent networks to every blade. With today's 40G payload and switches, this allows customers the flexibility to implement 160G per blade bandwidth with no redundancy or a 120G per blade backplane if one network is used to provide redundancy. That equals an aggregated system bandwidth of 1.6 Tb/s when implemented with no redundancy. This same QuadStar" technology can be applied to 100G payload and switches. This gives customers the ability to deliver up to 400G to each blade (4.0 Tb/s aggregate system bandwidth) in a non-redundant implementation or 300G with redundancy. To future proof their investment, customers can implement with 40G technology today and achieve up to 1.6 Tb/s of aggregate system bandwidth then upgrade to 100G and achieve up to 4.0 Tb/s of aggregate bandwidth in the future using the same chassis and backplane.

Doug Sandy, embedded computing chief technology officer, Artesyn Embedded Technologies, said: "Working with the industry, Artesyn is facilitating the development of open standards around 100G ATCA, which enable customers to evolve their SDN/NFV platforms to the highest possible performance. Through the companies in our heritage, including Pro-Log, Motorola Computer Group, Force Computers and Emerson's Embedded Computing business, Artesyn has a long history of contribution to specification development and contribution to the electronics and embedded community. We have been one of the top contributors to the ATCA specification and our leadership in 100G ATCA technology underlines that effort.

"What's more, we're enabling customers to future-proof their technology investment by making the 100G shelves available as soon as possible so they can avoid having to 'rip-and-replace' their shelves when the 100G payload blades become available. We followed the same philosophy in the migration from 10G to 40G and it's one of the reasons Artesyn now has the largest installed base of ATCA technology in the world," continued Sandy.

Artesyn has published a new white paper, 100G+ on a Standard Platform, that discusses the drivers and challenges for meeting service provider demands for more bandwidth and more intelligent networks.
