ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Jan. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- It's time to forget everything you thought you knew about compromising taste for fewer calories. Just ask Kim Cattrall. As part of its new campaign, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® has partnered with Ms. Cattrall to show consumers they can have it all - especially when it comes to their food.

Ms. Cattrall will appear in the new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! campaign as the star of a series of television commercials slated to air in March 2011. In a savvy style reminiscent of her famous television series role, Ms. Cattrall plays out some clever storylines that place her in the company of delicious-looking men and delectable food, brought to life by a series of clever double entendres and some fun wordplay.

"Enjoying I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! is kind of like finding a deliciously gorgeous man, and then discovering he's single," joked Ms. Cattrall. "That's the spirit that we're playing with in this campaign - we're showing women they can have it all - delicious taste, with fewer calories and less fat than butter."

Barry Sands, Senior Brand Manager for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! added, "In fact, a new taste test found that four out of five butter lovers agree that I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Original spread tastes just as good as fresh butter.(1) The 'You Can Have It All' campaign highlights the rich and delicious fresh butter taste of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, while reminding audiences that this taste comes with 70 percent less saturated fat and 30 percent fewer calories than butter and zero grams of trans fat per serving.(2)"

"I do love to eat, but I strive to eat well - so I love having a choice that I can feel good about using every day," said Ms. Cattrall. "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! tastes as great as fresh butter and I feel satisfied when I eat it, so I don't have to compromise."

To highlight the great taste and versatility of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, Chef Alex Guarnaschelli of Butter Restaurant in New York City created six exclusive recipes inspired by the fresh butter taste for the campaign launch. From a Fresh Cranberry Spread for toast to I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Cookies, the recipes featuring I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! are highlighted on www.icantbelieveitsnotbutter.com.

"I grew up watching my mother make toast with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! It always was, and still is, in my family's refrigerator," said Chef Alex Guarnaschelli. "And as a chef, home cook and mother, I never want to compromise taste as I create recipes - and I don't have to when I use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! It tastes great and performs really well in a number of recipes, including sautéing and baking."

The new campaign also supports the launch of two new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! varieties, making it easier than ever to infuse fresh butter taste into foods without compromise:

  • New I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Spray made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a perfect topping for chicken and vegetables.
  • New I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Whipped & Creamy Taste has a creamy texture and tastes indulgent.

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...
Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources. For DevOps it is crucial to monitor the whole application stack and Node.js is rapidly becoming an important part of the stack in many organizations. Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, S...
It's been a busy time for tech's ongoing infatuation with containers. Amazon just announced EC2 Container Registry to simply container management. The new Azure container service taps into Microsoft's partnership with Docker and Mesosphere. You know when there's a standard for containers on the table there's money on the table, too. Everyone is talking containers because they reduce a ton of development-related challenges and make it much easier to move across production and testing environm...

With cloud computing driving a higher percentage of enterprise IT budgets every year, it becomes increasingly important to plant your flag in this fast-expanding business opportuni...
Deploying applications in hybrid cloud environments is hard work. Your team spends most of the time maintaining your infrastructure, configuring dev/test and production environments, and deploying applications across environments – which can be both time consuming and error prone. But what if you could automate provisioning and deployment to deliver error free environments faster? What could you do with your free time?
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...

The following fictional case study is a composite of actual horror stories I’ve heard over the years. Unfortunately, this scenario often occurs when in-house integration teams take on the complexities of DevOps and ALM integration with an enterprise service bus (ESB) or custom integration. It is written from the perspective of an enterprise architect tasked with leading an organization’s effort to adopt Agile to become more competitive. The company has turned to Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) as ...

Modern organizations face great challenges as they embrace innovation and integrate new tools and services.

Thomas Bitman of Gartner wrote a blog post last year about why OpenStack projects fail. In that article, he outlined three particular metrics which together cause 60% of OpenStack projects to fall short of expectations: Wrong people (31% of failures): a successful cloud needs commitment both from the operations team as well as from "anchor" tenants. Wrong processes (19% of failures): a successful cloud automates across silos in the software development lifecycle, not just within silos.
