Get amazing tips on the administration of Clenbuterol

Is it safe to administer dietary supplementation products like Clenbuterol? Are you aware of its harmful effects? Do you know about the mode of action of the compound? Why do you think so many popular fitness enthusiast including body builders, athletes, weight lifters and wrestlers are interested in buying Clenbuterol supplements? Is it because the product is a steroid and offers quick action? Or is it a big hoax altogether? To clear out the doubts of innumerable people, Clenbuterol is a non steroidal weight loss supplementation product that helps in the rapid burning of fat cells via the process of thermogenesis. It involves raise in the body temperature that in turn causes increase in the metabolic rate of body cells, triggering them to help in fast shredding of fats and lipids. Generally when you take foods containing higher percentage of carbohydrates, complex fats and lipid molecules enters in your body and gets accumulated in stubborn parts like the thighs, hips and belly. These fat layers become very difficult to be removed and thus you need to follow a very strict fitness regime involving heavy and strenuous exercises and physical workouts. In that case are the results fast and satisfactory? The answer will be no. What if you combine your regular workout schedule with a balanced diet chart containing dietary medications in cutting cycles? Will the fat burning results be enhanced? Of course it will be!

How to conduct a proper Clenbuterol cycle?

It is said that you should never favour the extremes of anything since it is never good to have something too positive or too negative. When it comes down to dietary supplementation drugs like Clenbuterol, you should always be careful about the regulation of the dosage cycle in order to stay in good health and keep enjoying beneficial effects more than adverse effects. If you want enhanced and better results, timing your dosage before your workout will definitely help you with faster fat burning effects and better maintenance of your muscle unit.

The maximum range of dose strength that is considered safe for female use is 140 mcg per day pills, but usually they will get enhanced effects at 100 mcg capsules as well. Administering dose strengths more than this can end you up in serious health hazards. Male users can even go up to the range of 200 mcg per day but exceeding that will cause severe adversities if not controlled with care during the cycle.

How to regulate the cutting cycle?

It is always better to regulate your dosage cycle in a 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off basis, which means that there should be an even interval of 2 weeks after administering the product for 2 weeks each time during the cycle.

This timing your dosage before your workout will help you judge the efficacy of the product in a better way and also make you aware of any abnormal results, along with the will to overcome that.

Mythic launches a chip to enable computer vision and voice control on any device

Hardware that responds to voice commands is already out there and probably in your hand or house right now. Whether it’s a smartphone, smart speaker or wearable, it has to connect to the cloud to deliver answers. Now, a startup called Mythic (formerly known as Isocline) is launching a chip and software that will change all that, putting voice control, computer vision and other kinds of AI into our devices locally, no cloud required.

Headquartered in Austin, with offices in Redwood City, Calif., Mythic has raised $9.3 million in venture funding, including angel capital and a Series A round, according to CEO and co-founder Mike Henry. Mythic’s Series A round was led by Draper Fisher Jurvetson joined by Lux Capital, Data Collective, and AME Cloud Ventures. DFJ’s Steve Jurvetson and Lux Capital’s Shahin Farshchi have joined the startup’s board of directors.

Prior to their Series A, Mythic had raised about $2.5 million in government grants. The new funding will help the startup begin to commercialize its chips, which are about the size of a small shirt button, and proprietary software that make them work alongside other processors and memory.

DFJ Partner Steve Jurvetson, who was an early backer of SpaceX, Tesla and Nervana Systems (now owned by Intel) said:

“What Mythic has built is a deep learning or neural network chip that implements learning algorithms at a radically lower price point, chip size and power consumption level than anything we have today.

With this, you could put machine intelligence into a toaster, or a Roomba, a security camera, or all kinds of devices where it wouldn’t make sense before because you’d need a persistent internet connection to make it useful.”

 The influential and self-proclaimed “VC geek” views Mythic’s market opportunity as wide-ranging. He predicted, “The industrial internet of things is becoming the sensory cortex of the planet. Industrial and enterprise customers will want to use this to do inspection and quality control wherever they have a sort of sensor node, whether it’s a camera, a microphone, a temperature sensor or something else.”

The inspiration for Mythic’s technology dates back to 2012, when Henry and co-founder and CTO Dave Fick were both graduating from different labs with doctorates in computer science. The friends made an early bet that deep neural networks and machine learning approaches to software development would eventually require more powerful compute resources in the devices and machines we use daily. Nobody was calling it “AI” yet, but insiders were talking about deep learning as the key to making devices that see, hear and interact with the world with human-like qualities.

Today, the CEO said, that bet is starting to pay off. “A lot of devices and applications are taking in too much data to send to the cloud. Like think about drones with multiple, high-res images coming through the cameras. All they need to find is the crack on a turbine or dry patches of farm land. If they process all that data through the cloud, and run analytics with complex algorithms, they’ll drain their batteries and have to land. We saw opportunity to do processing locally inside a device.”

Henry said that the company has been hiring aggressively since closing its Series A round at the end of 2016. It will continue to do that while reaching out to potential pilot customers. Long-term, Mythic’s cofounders hope to bring their technology to automakers building autonomous vehicles. However, the CEO said, consumer electronics, drone and robotics companies, which tend to move from design to production more quickly, will most likely be among Mythic’s earliest users.

Elvie pulls in $6M Series A to build a global female health tech brand

The UK startup behind a connected kegel exerciser called Elvie is today announcing a $6 million Series A round led by European VC firm Octopus Ventures. Female focused VC AllBright is also joining the round, which will be used to expand sales to more markets and build out its product portfolio, with a second device planned for launch in early 2018.

Tania Boler, co-founder of the London-based company, which was founded in 2013 — working stealthily at first before decloaking to take pre-orders for Elvie back in November 2014 — describes its overall focus as ‘femtech’, with the push and purpose for the team being to develop smarter products that address female health & wellbeing issues.

Such as, in the case of the current product, helping to build pelvic floor strength — an issue that can affect women post-childbirth, leading to problems such as urinary incontinence. While a stronger pelvic floor can have additional positives, with Elvie touting “better sex” as one of the potential lifestyle benefits, for example.

This does put the startup into something of a category of its own in the hardware startup space, where wearable-makers aren’t typically building for such a single and specific (let alone female-focused) purpose. And where addressing ‘women’s needs’ most likely means some sort of aesthetic concession — such as wearables where the tech is embedded into a piece of jewelry.

It’s also fair to say that the consumer wearables space has not had the easiest ride in recent times. Even for veterans of the category like Pebble, Fitbit and Jawbone — whose co-founder, Alex Asseily, also happens to be a co-founder of Elvie — there have been shut downs, job cuts and suggestions of b2b pivots.

But evidently it’s not all doom and gloom — at least not for this alternative ‘wearable’ maker (the Elvie device is worn internally during pelvic floor workouts). Even if it has taken Elvie a little longer than Boler originally anticipated to close the Series A.

“The funding climate has changed since 2014 in general in Europe, but also particularly for wearable technology,” she tells TechCrunch, discussing the raise. “A lot of startups working in the hardware space, after a lot of initial excitement around the hardware revolution and the potential of connected devices — because the success rate has not been so high, and actually particularly female-focused wearable tech has not fared so well over the last few years — so we very much had that in mind when we were going for the Series A.

“We wanted to learn some of the lessons, even from Jawbone. And show how we were different to other hardware startups. So very much our focus was — we launched just over a year ago — really to show that the unit economics work, that we could get to breakeven and a sustainable business model, because this was one of the key concerns of investors.”

Elvie’s tightly focused consumer product turned a profit six months after the device went on sale (it’s currently sold in 59 countries, with 25 more to be added with the new funding). And generated $1M in revenue from direct sales during 2016 (Elvie is also sold via third party retail channels such as John Lewis’ stores); the $199 price tag suggests around 5,000 units were sold direct in the first year.

The team says the customer base is currently growing by 50%, quarter on quarter. And Boler emphasizes they’ve also been operating with “zero budget” for marketing up to now. All of which clearly helped convince investors to open their checkbooks — at least those who could see beyond the noise of the wearables category.

“We had some investors who asked us when we were going to start playing in the major league, and start competing with Fitbit and Jawbone and stop being so niche,” says Boler. “But a lot of those wearable tech companies have just been in an arms race to plough in as many sensors as possible. And users don’t understand how to make sense of that data and it’s not relevant to them. So for us our approach is to go in, hit highly disruptive moments in a woman’s life, make sure we’re solving a real problem.”

“The femtech scene is beginning to show traction,” she adds. “In the last year there’s been a lot more startups in this space. What we do we think is different, we’ve very much going at it around specific stages in a woman’s life. And supporting them during those changes — because that’s when they’re most likely to adopt new technology. But our ambition is to build the first ever global women’s health tech brand. So we needed the extra financing to accelerate on product development and market penetration.”

While it would be impossible to accuse Elvie’s first product of lacking a clear proposition, Boler says the specificity has caused some investors to doubt there’s anything more than a niche market here. In a sort of ‘damned if you do, damned if you don’t’ twist.

“I think we probably had to hit more milestones than a non-female-focused startup,” she says, discussing the challenges of raising money for a business focused on women’s intimate health issues when, inexorably, the majority of VCs are men.

There were a lot of naysayers, a lot of people saying this is a niche issue.

“We made sure that we went that extra mile. There were a lot of naysayers, a lot of people saying this is a niche issue… You can show them the statistics and explain that 51% of the population are women and women’s health are critical issues, but because these issues aren’t talked about the need is not so obvious.”

 Boler says Octopus’ experience building consumer brands — and also launching brands in the US — was a big pull, while female-focused firm AllBright is an obvious strategic investor, given the “shared vision”.

Prior to the Series A, the team raised $3M in seed funding, from investors including Google Maps founder Lars Rasmussen, iCAP founder Michael Spencer, Nicole Junkermann founder of NJF Capital, and Lulu founder Alexandra Chong, as well as taking in $1.5M via different government grants schemes — using these relatively slender resources (for a hardware startup) to reboot an existing product, the kegel exerciser, by adding sensors and connectivity to enable real-time feedback and app-enabled guidance.

But tech is just the tool Elvie is using in pursuit of its wider mission of building lifestyle products addressing women’s needs. So Boler, for example, describes the company as “technology agnostic” — because the priority is addressing the target user, not playing in a particular technology niche.

“For us it’s not about just the technology, we had to change the conversation — because everybody talks about this issue as a yucky health issue, so there were a lot of naysayers. People said you’ll never get a celebrity to talk about this issue. You’re never going to get retailers to stock this in John Lewis. And we proved them all wrong.”

“Ultimately I think investors increasingly are seeing that the female consumer has been really overlooked,” she adds. “There’s now an appreciation that women appreciate and will pay for technology that will improve their lives.”

Beyond questions about the size of the addressable market for products targeting women’s personal health issues, she says some investors also worried about how to categorize the company — wondering whether to file the startup under ‘medical devices’ or ‘consumer’. In fact Boler reckons Elvie sits in between — aiming to capitalize on three growth trends: female empowerment; connected devices; and a societal need for healthcare to become more preventative to reduce costs.

“When you take the women, the technology and the health, those three ingredients means that now is a very special time in history to do something big,” she argues. “So the opportunity’s bigger than I first realized and that’s why we’re busy building our second product, and growing the team.”

Commenting on the funding in a statement, Octopus’ Simon King, added: “Elvie is addressing an unrivalled market for women’s personal health and has already established itself as the leader in this category. In particular, Octopus focuses on backing unusually talented teams — and Tania and her team are exceptional. We’re thrilled to accompany them in this new phase of growth, rolling out in new geographies and extending the reach of what connected hardware can do for women’s personal health.”

The roadmap for Elvie at this point is to have launched four devices by 2020, says Boler. And although she isn’t saying exactly what’s in the works she confirms each forthcoming product that will sit under the Elvie brand will be focused on “a very specific challenge that a woman’s facing in her life at that moment”. So again, the products will be “outcomes based” rather than general purpose gizmos — with the resulting pitch to consumers being they’re paying for an improvement, rather than a capability.

“I think the old fault lines between medical devices and consumer products are really blurring,” she adds. “What we recognize as our strategic value as a company in general is we’re very good at taking unloved, neglected medical devices and turning them into premium lifestyle products. And the opportunity is really big across all health devices, I think, as a call out to other startups. Because medical devices, historically, have just been purely based on function and not around a user-centered design.

“So our second product… is going to empower women. It’s an existing product category that hasn’t been innovated in for a long time. And will complement nicely Elvie… We’ll be launching it, hopefully, in January 2018.”

For the current Elvie kegel exerciser, Boler notes that the workout programs in the app have also been tweaked to be more objectives-focused — enabling users to, for example, target a particular health problem but also switch to more casual usage, when appropriate.

“To have intelligent solutions for women you need to recognize what their objectives are and meet those,” she says, adding: “We keep working on the app, it’s an ongoing project based on feedback. The key issue is Elvie helps women be rewarded through positive behavior and exercise so we send out intelligent reminders based on when they’re more likely to use the product, we keep adding new levels, and we’re actually launching some games now. It’s all just about making the experience more interesting for women.”

Austin is fine without Uber and Lyft…until it isn’t

After spending a few days in Austin, which lost Uber and Lyft almost a year ago, I started brainstorming a post about how the city was doing just fine without either of the ride sharing giants.

Since Uber and Lyft left last May a bevy of alternatives have sprung up – like Ride Austin, Fasten and Fare. These apps all essentially provide the same experience as Uber and Lyft – drop a pin and a car shows up. All of them comply with Austin’s background check law, and some of them even charge drivers and riders less than Uber and Lyft did.

I had even began to wonder if maybe Uber and Lyft made a mistake by stubbornly refusing to comply with Austin’s fingerprint-based background check requirement, because it showed that a major U.S city could actually survive without them.

Until they couldn’t.

Last night, arguably the biggest night of SXSW, it rained – and everyone wanted a ride. And on cue, the apps failed. Overloaded with demand, Ride Austin and Fasten were essentially “bricked” – you either got stuck at a loading screen or the apps said there were no cars available – when there clearly were.

Riders were stuck, and drivers were circling the city with no way to get matched up with riders.

I heard some (non-taxi) drivers offering to accept cash or Venmo for a ride. It was a flashback to the period of time directly after Uber and Lyft left Austin but before a regulated competitor could take its place. Back then rides were organized on a 30k-member Facebook group where drivers solicited rides for cash.

 In a post, Ride Austin said they were down sporadically from 7:15pm to midnight “due to a previously undiscovered database issue that did not emerge during scale testing”. And Fasten told a local Austin paper that the combination of rain and SXSW led to the app receiving “12 times as many ride requests as normal” is what led to them crashing.

While the companies made it sound like SXSW was the culprit, drivers told us that these apps are often prone to go offline on high-demand nights, like New Years Eve and during Austin City Limits.

As much as people complain about the duopoly created by Uber and Lyft, you can’t argue with the fact that their platform is stable and won’t have random technical issues that prevent you from hailing a ride.

Things seem to be working fine today, but Austin definitely missed its chance to prove that cities are ready to fully-function without Uber or Lyft.

Omidyar Network and the Anti-Defamation League are launching a center to combat cyberhate

With hate crimes reportedly on the rise across the country and online, the Anti-Defamation League is setting up a new outpost in Silicon Valley, backed by the Omidyar Network, to look at ways to use technology to fight back.

Racially and religiously motivated threats were on the rise in the run-up to the election and have continued into the new year. Events have culminated in the murder of an Indian man in Kansas City last month and the shooting of a Sikh man in a Washington state suburb outside of Seattle just last week. Meanwhile, the Southern Poverty Law Center documented over 1,000 incidents through the month of January alone, following the election of President Donald Trump.

Jewish communities across the U.S. have also been targeted, with at least 152 bomb threats reported at community centers and synagogues around the country.

The ADL sees the Internet as increasingly driving the dissemination and promotion of hate speech in the modern era and is looking to marshal the resources of Silicon Valley’s techcommunity to create better tools to “monitor, track, analyze and mitigate hate speech and harassment across the Internet”, according to a statement.

“1.8 billion people are on Facebook — 500 million tweets are sent out every day. No matter how you cut it, it’s incredibly important to make sure we are taking the fight to where the country and the world is at. Simply put, it’s online.”

Though the ADL has long maintained a presence in San Francisco, the new office in Silicon Valley will be a command center from which the organization hopes to combat all kinds of cyberthreats.

 Beyond its work monitoring and reporting hate speech, the group will also look at methods to better secure the online presence of various minority organizations; examine the seam between digital rights and the creation of a civil society, and look to partner with leading technology companies to ensure the safety of online communities.

The ADL is already working with Alphabet and its Jigsaw division (formerly Google Labs), on ways to improve its software developed to identify and filter propaganda and hate speech.

Since the earliest days of the Internet, the ADL has tracked hate speech online. Now with the increasing importance of the internet in public life, the need is greater than ever, Greenblatt says.

Helmed by former Department of Justice lawyer, Brittan Heller, the new center will author reports and publish data on cyberhate and cyberbullying; engage partners and provide insight to policy makers; and expose and combat specific cases of online harassment and cyberbullying, according to a report.

Now more than ever as anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, and other hatreds have exploded online, it’s critical that we are bringing best-in-class technology and resources to this fight. That’s why we will build this center in Silicon Valley, and why we are so grateful to Omidyar Network for providing seed funding for this effort. This is a natural extension of the cyber hate work ADL has been doing for decades and builds on the new presence we established last year in the Valley to collaborate even closer on the threat with the tech industry.

Key Aspects of Considering Generic Somatropin for Growth

The human growth hormone entails key conditions of growth during puberty, and to a lesser extent, in adulthood. The phenomenal transformation of a teenager to an adult is mainly caused by heavy mechanisms of sex hormones such as estrogen and testosterone, along with HGH. Although it is naturally produced in human body, yet scientists have been able to produce similar chemical structures with synthetic genomic engineering. The exogenous genetic manufacturing is achieved by connecting two or more recombinant DNA strands in the laboratory.

A vital drug

All leading pharmaceutical brands provide this as a medication to deal with growth deficiencies and other related syndromes. However, just as with phentermine, somatropin also came to be known as an effective supplement in the bodybuilding community. The premium weight loss steroid for cutting stacks, phentermine, is also actually an asthmatic relief drug primarily before bodybuilders discovered its alternative benefits.

As you would easily understand, obtaining these sophisticated drugs for recreational purposes without a valid prescription is close to impossible in most countries. Nevertheless, in lieu of the anonymous benefits that the internet provides, interested fitness enthusiasts can easily obtain these from a reliable web retailer. However, there again, a customer should be careful in picking up the right service.

Understand HGH

The potency of the supplement essentially depends on its compositional purity. Always make it a point to order generic somatropin from a resourceful website. Visit your preferred page to check out if they categorically mention the possible side effects of using the product beyond the limits of safety. In any way, it should be important to remember that injecting synthetic DNA strands to your body essentially refers to voluntary mutation. Especially in muscle building, people tend to very impatient for a quick fix to inflate the muscles. Such kinds of extensive efforts can ultimately result in acquired genetic conditions, and other physical side effects.

Making best use

Common red flags reported with excess HGH use include a tingling sensation in the palm, restlessness, irritability, constipation, and edema or accumulation of water in body cells. Regular users of growth hormone injections report that when used in regulation, these can be very effective in achieving optimum muscular growth. However, it is extremely important to invest sufficient enterprise in gym sessions at home or at a good facility. Including HGH in your supplement stack would also require researching the mutual interaction of the chemical with other substances.

A conscious choice

Incompatibility within the stack can deliver a double whammy of side effects plus chemical mismatch. Your risks are significantly lowered by purchasing the drug from a good website. Head over to a recommended service page to check out the availability of all resources. Any good site would encourage customers to take a conscious decision after presenting the pros, cons and intended use of generic somatropin.

You can also find critical info such as milligram strength and amount calculator. The use of HGH should be dependent on additional factors such as age, medical history, and possible allergic responses. Genuine peer reviews in bodybuilding chat forums can also serve great help to find out what is really best for you.
