Perrigo launches the parent ‘formula’ for success

first_imgPerrigo Nutritionals,Vermont Business Magazine The Vermont-based infant formula company Perrigo Nutritionals is launching a new parent-centered campaign. Every parent has a unique “formula” for how to juggle it all: family, work and “me” time. To celebrate the everyday parenting balancing act, Perrigo, the leading manufacturer of store brand infant formula(link is external), has launched the #ShareYourFormula Sweepstakes running now through April 24.The #ShareYourFormula Sweepstakes brings these unique parenting formulas to life by using popular emoji images, giving six lucky winners the chance to bring home $1,000 and a one year supply of store brand infant formula.To enter, fans can visit is external) and follow the instructions to submit their unique parenting formula by using the store brand formula emoji keyboard.”This unique campaign celebrates the endless ways parents express and share the joys of parenthood by showcasing how every parent’s ‘formula for success’ is different – as it should be,” said Sandra Gordon, author of Consumer Reports Best Baby Products and the blog, “Ironically, even though every parent’s ‘formula for success’ may be different, all infant formulas are required to meet the same FDA standards.”Many parents are unaware that all infant formulas marketed in the United States, both nationally advertised formula brands and store brand formulas sold at leading retailers, must meet the same federal nutrient requirements. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) monitors all infant formula products and requires infant formula manufacturers to test product composition during production and shelf-life, to keep records on production, testing, and distribution of each batch of infant formula, and to use good manufacturing practices and quality control procedures. In addition, FDA conducts yearly inspection of all facilities that manufacture infant formula to collect and analyze samples of infant formula.”When it comes to selecting an infant formula, buying an expensive, nationally advertised brand does not make sense when there are budget-friendly options that meet the same federal quality and nutrient requirements,” added Gordon. “According to federal regulations(link is external) and the guidance of healthcare professional groups such as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), infant formula must be formulated so that it can provide a baby with a sole source of nutrition.”Perrigo Nutritionals is the largest supplier of store brand infant formula in the world and one of only a few companies recognized by FDA for meeting FDA requirements for safety, nutrition, and quality. By switching to store brand formula, which costs up to half the price of advertised brands, parents can save up to $600 per year without compromising quality.*For official contest rules and to enter, visit is external).About Store Brand FormulaStore brand infant formula is manufactured in FDA-inspected, ISO 9001:2008-certified facilities in Ohio and Vermont, U.S.A. Dairy ingredients are sourced from leading dairy markets, including the United States, Canada, and New Zealand.

OpenSocial’s Failed Promise: Only 0.7% of Apps Have Crossed Networks (Updated)

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… marshall kirkpatrick Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification OpenSocial was intended to help everyone else keep up with the huge success of the Facebook platform. If there’s one clear market leader, everyone else has a common interest in creating a standard that will help scale the market opportunity on their platforms vs. what Facebook can offer. It hasn’t worked out that way, though. Outside observers hoped that OpenSocial would allow for user data to be transmitted from one site to another. People thought this was the coming of Data Portability, though OpenSocial advocates quickly said that wasn’t the intent. It was just for apps to port, not user data. There is a lot of innovation going on in OpenSocial – it’s a shame the platform isn’t better appreciated.Below: I discuss OpenSocial in March of last year on G4TV, forced to break the host’s heart about data portability!Video Games – E3 2009 – Attack of the ShowWhy hasn’t cross-network development happened though? There are a few theories. The most common is that though there is a common bed of code across all the different social network containers, each of them is also tweaked just enough that it’s not that easy to “write once.” When that became apparent, OpenSocial advocates started saying that the standard still made it a lot easier to develop for multiple networks. So if not “write once, deploy everywhere” then perhaps it was “write once and then take a lot less time to write for elsewhere than you’d have to otherwise.”Clearly developers haven’t taken advantage of that opportunity.Google’s Kevin Marks, one of the leading public faces for OpenSocial, told us today that there are serious cultural differences between the networks and that this could help explain why there hasn’t been more cross pollination. One look through the directory makes it clear though that while the countless “hot bikini girl” apps may not translate from MySpace to LinkedIn well, all the other networks have their own isolated versions of many of the same insipid apps.The most viable explanation could be that Facebook is in fact the only game in town for the most sophisticated developers. That’s a real shame, because it’s never good for innovation for there to be only one game in town. Tags:#social networks#web#Yahoo Related Posts When the Google-led OpenSocial campaign launched in October 2007 it aimed to give developers a common environment that application publishers could publish widgets to with one set of code, deployable across Google sites, MySpace, Hi5 and numerous other social networks.A directory of OpenSocial Apps launched today and the reality is even further from that goal than we expected. Out of 12,456 apps listed, only 83 are running on two or more “containers.” That’s 0.7% or one out of every 1500. Update: See this reply below from Google’s Kevin Marks. Marks says that cross-network presence was counted manually and is actually larger than it appears in the directory.last_img read more

Intel, Micron Unveil New 25nm NAND Flash Chip

first_imgThe new 25nm, 2bit/cell chip can hold 8GB of digital capacity, more  than 10 times the capacity of a standard compact dic [700MB]. The chip  measures a mere 167mm2 — small enough to fit through the hole in the  middle of a compact disc.Intel and Micron Technology reset the NAND flash capacity bar a  little higher and the chip size threshold a little lower Feb. 1 with the  introduction of the world’s first 25-nanometer solid-state processor.The new 25nm, 2bit/cell chip can hold 8GB of digital capacity, more  than 10 times the capacity of a standard compact disc [700MB]. The chip  measures a mere 167mm2 — small enough to fit through the hole in the  middle of a compact disc.”This is not only the smallest NAND lithography in the world, it is  the smallest silicon manufacturing technology in the world,” Intel  Marketing Director Troy Winslow told eWEEK on a conference call. Resource Library:”This is now the largest capacity multi-level cell device on the  market, at 8GB. We were the first on 34nm, now we’re the first on 25nm.”The smaller size allows multiple 8GB chips to be packaged more  economically to increase storage capacity. The new 25nm 8GB device  reduces chip count by 50 percent compared to previous process  generations, allowing for smaller, yet higher-density, designs and  greater cost efficiencies, Winslow said.For example, a 256GB solid-state drive now can be enabled with only  32 of these devices, versus 64 previously, Winslow said. A 32GB  smartphone needs only four, and a 16GB flash card requires only two, he  said.NAND flash memory, used in consumer devices such as smartphones,  digital cameras, and personal music and media players, stores data and  retains the information even when the power is turned off. NAND flash  also is gaining market share for use as components in high-performance  solid-state drives for servers and storage arrays.IM Flash Technologies, Intel and Micron’s NAND flash joint venture,  continues to cram more capacity onto tinier pieces of silicon about  every six to eight months. IMFT debuted its 34nm, 3Bit/cell NAND flash  chip last August.The 25nm/8GB device is sampling now and is expected to enter mass  production in Q2 2010, Winslow said.last_img read more

What our ancestors meant Canada First Nations create new park reserve

first_imgThaidene Nëné in the Northwest Territories will become Canada’s newest National Park Reserve. Photo: Parks Canada.The Canadian PressA deal on a vast new national park reserve in the North is being called a model for future relationships between First Nations and Canada.“This is what our ancestors meant when they entered into treaty with Canada,” said Steve Nitah, who represented Indigenous groups in talks that led to the Thaidene Nëné National Park Reserve in the Northwest Territories.“We agreed to share the land, its resources, the responsibility for management, and to benefit together.”Thaidene Nëné — Land of the Ancestors — protects 26,376 square kilometres of pristine waters and healthy forest in and around the east arm of Great Slave Lake. The agreement to be signed Wednesday between the federal and territorial governments and four First Nations gives Indigenous people an unprecedented role in the park’s operation.It is to be co-managed by Parks Canada and the Lutsel K’e First Nation. Neighbouring communities will have a role in developing the park plan.There will be at least eight full-time jobs to monitor and protect the land and run a visitor and operations centre in Lutsel K’e. Indigenous people will be able to hunt, fish and carry out other traditional activities as they always have.It’s the way of the future, said federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna — especially if Canada is to meet its internationally promised target of 17 per cent of its land under protection by 2020.“It was clear that the only way you could do that was in partnership with Indigenous people,” she said. “This follows along that vision.”No industrial activities will be allowed. Non-Indigenous visitors will be barred from big-game hunting, but can otherwise use the area.About 14,000 square kilometres is to be managed as a national park. Another 12,000 square kilometres will be under territorial legislation with similar protection as the federal area.Campgrounds and other infrastructure are to be developed. The park will be marketed as a tourist destination, said Nitah.Visitors will experience both boreal forest and tundra threaded with lakes, rivers and waterfalls. The lake boasts spectacular cliffs and islands and some of the deepest freshwater in North America.Wildlife in the area includes moose, muskox, wolves, bears, wolverines, caribou and many species of birds and fish.“It’s the heart of our homeland,” Nitah said. “We want to be able to ensure that future generations can depend on it for sustenance, cultural preservation and spiritual guidance.”Nitah said southern First Nations are already looking at the Thaidene Nëné agreement as a model for talks with Parks Canada.The deal took more than 50 years to work out. Overlapping land claims and concerns about mineral resources made the talks complicated, McKenna said.About 8,000 square kilometres originally proposed for the park were removed because of potentially valuable deposits.Thaidene Nëné brings Canada’s inventory of protected areas to just over 12 per cent, an increase of two percentage points under the Liberal government.More is coming. A $1-billion federal-private conservation fund has been overwhelmed with applications, McKenna said.“Many of those are with Indigenous people. They don’t necessarily have to be national parks.“We are committed to meeting our 17 per cent target.”Nitah’s just glad Thaidene Nëné is finally on the books.“That’s where I grew up, on the land in bush camps. Summers on the tundra, fall in the boreal, following the trapping seasons.“It’s close to my heart, and close to all the people from Lutsel K’e.”[email protected]@aptnnewslast_img read more
