"Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp" Comes to Colorado - The CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center Begins Transformational Program Jul 31, 2014 07:45PM

AURORA, Colo. (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

A program for anyone looking to experience weight loss "boot camp" is coming to the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center (AHWC) as a one-week destination weight loss boot camp and transformation program.

"Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp," a collaboration between AHWC and Eyeworks USA, is an evidenced-based program inspired by the unscripted series "Extreme Weight Loss," produced for ABC by Eyeworks USA. This season, the show has participants spending their first three months at AHWC to successfully begin their weight loss journey (the series documents the year-long transformation in 17 people).

Holly Wyatt, MD, medical director at the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center and on "Extreme Weight Loss," is a guiding force, along with series trainers and transformation specialists Chris and Heidi Powell, in helping the show participants safely lose weight. In her practice at AHWC, Wyatt also works with individuals and small groups to help them realize weight loss and maintenance goals.

"Many of the changes these people make have nothing to do with diet or exercise," said Wyatt. "We know the most challenging part of losing weight is keeping it off and developing a new way of thinking to keep it off long-term."

People who take part in "Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp" will come to AHWC every day for Phase 1, which is the first week of the weight loss boot camp program, and have hotel accommodations near campus.

"We have 20 years of experience and science backing up the principles we will share at 'Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp'," said Wyatt. "In addition to looking at nutrition and exercise, we will assess individual metabolic function, sleep and stress levels to give participants a look at what they do well and what they might need to work on."

During "Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp," participants will be assigned a transformation coach for daily sessions of physical activity, mental exercises and nutrition education. Each also will receive body composition, personalized nutritional analysis and wellness assessments. The program is based on the weight loss principles outlined in "State of Slim," written by Wyatt and James O. Hill, PhD, AHWC's executive director.

"State of Slim" principles include identifying your personal reasons for losing weight, focusing on positive aspects of weight loss, creating a supportive environment and developing new habits and rituals to make healthy decisions.

After the first week, participants will head home and have the option to continue the transformation in Phases 2, 3 and 4. They can take part in 15 weekly online classes with their transformation coach. There will also be an online community for support and guidance throughout the year. At the completion of one year, we will invite them back to celebrate their success.

The program will be available to 120 people in the month of October 2014. For more information on the program please call 1-844-404-2008 or go to http://www.ewlbootcamp.com.

"Extreme Weight Loss" airs Tuesday nights 8:00-10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network. It is produced for ABC by Eyeworks USA and is executive produced by JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Matt Assmus and Brant Pinvidic.

Report: Car Buyers Will Shop for Vehicles on Social Media Jul 31, 2014 07:45PM

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

The perception that social media users will not click away from their favorite social media services may be incorrect. A recent study by Dealer Authority and Cactus Sky Digital shows that sales messages targeting people who have indicated a need to buy a car in the near future will prompt 1.4% of them to click through to a car dealer's website.

The study, which accumulated data from 30 social media campaigns over the last six months, showed that clicks from social media occurred at higher percentages than general display advertising, retargeting, video pre-roll, and classified website links. The only advertising venue with a higher click-thru rate is pay-per-click search marketing at 2.1%.

"We were aware that people were willing to click away from social media, but we had no idea it would be as high as it really is," said Subi Ghosh, Vice President of Dealer Authority. "This may be the untapped market, the uncharted territory in digital advertising that dealers are looking for."

Even though search marketing has a higher click-thru rate, it comes at a price. The average cost per click from search engines to car dealer websites is $4.11. The average cost for clicks from social media sites is $0.58.

"People are used to surfing social media regularly, but they are sensitive to reminders of real life that pop up," said JD Rucker, Founder of Dealer Authority who headed up the study. "When someone wants to buy a car and they see an ad on their news feed, they realize that they should probably be completing the task of searching for a new vehicle instead of watching what their friends are doing online."

The results of the study will be officially released at the 2015 NADA Convention shortly after Ghosh presents her NADA workshop. Cactus Sky Digital President Peter Martin will also be presenting at the convention will have copies of the report as well. Those interested in receiving the raw data early can contact Dealer Authority through their website.

RFID Middleware Introduced by Supply Chain Developer Datex Jul 31, 2014 07:45PM

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Supply chain software developer Datex has developed middleware for RFID. The Datex middleware reads RFID tags and provides tag location as well as time and date stamp on entry to the Datex warehouse management system.

Using Datex RFID middleware and RFID portals, warehouses can use a two-step putaway process to help prevent misplaced inventory. RFID portals can be positioned in strategic locations, such as at the entry to freezers or aisles to capture inventory movement. This enables warehouse operations to have a system in place to locate inventory, saving valuable time and labor.

Using RFID in this manner provides numerous benefits. This system eliminates the need to physically check the Bill of Lading and/or packing slip and can reduce the cost of labor to manage the damaged goods process. RFID can be read regardless of position. Using RFID is an improvement over barcodes which must be placed face up or on top of boxes in order to be read. RFID improves worker productivity as well as the speed of product flow throughout the warehouse. Other benefits of using RFID include: identification of product compatibility issues to workers; enhancement of picking accuracy; facilitation of the returns process of unsellable or damaged goods; improvements in putaway rates and reductions in employee theft.

Using RFID enables warehouses to create more flexible storage environments. There is no need to place pallets and products in specifically assigned locations. The use of RFID also minimizes "honeycombing", i.e. large empty rack slots positioned among filled slots in a racked warehouse.

A video regarding implementation and additional information on RFID solutions are available on the Datex website.

About Datex

In successful operation since 1978, Datex has helped companies operate more efficiently and productively using state-of-the-art technology. Known for developing highly flexible workflow based warehouse management software, Datex WMS is in use by 3PLs, warehousing and distribution operations, non-profit organizations and manufacturers across the world.
