Constellix Dives, Ducks and Dodges Diabetes at the 10th Annual Dodging Diabetes Charity Dodgeball Tournament

Constellix, a locally owned and operated elite IT enterprise monitoring business, is working to find a cure for diabetes – one dodge ball at a time.
Constellix is a title sponsor for 10th Annual Dodging Diabetes charity dodge ball tournament slated for March 22 in Laurel MD. The company’s ultimate goal is to help support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Joslin Diabetes Center, beneficiaries of the proceeds from the tournament.
“Constellix is proud to support our community, and challenges other service providers to do the same,” said Steven Job, president of DNS Made Easy, the creators of Constellix. “If we all work together, we can find a way to halt the effects of diabetes or cure the disease altogether.”
Last year, Team Constellix helped round out a 30-team competition where participants dipped, dove, ducked and dodged their way through the weekend. Event planners hope to see the same level of play this year.
The Dodging Diabetes charity, founded by Anna Tiedeman Irwin and Elizabeth Kramer Dugan in 2005, raises money to defeat diabetes and educate people about what it really means to live with the disease. Through annual dodge ball tournaments, the group has netted more than $150,000 for diabetes research. The two friends have brothers who live with Type 1 diabetes and both participate in the tournament.
“We started Dodging Diabetes because we know firsthand what a diagnosis of diabetes really means for entire families,” said president and co-founder Anna Tiedeman Irwin. “We are so grateful for sponsors like Constellix who help us get one step closer to knocking out diabetes for good.”
Last year’s even raised $25,000 and this year event staff are hoping to top $35,000. This all-volunteer and sponsor-covered event means 100 percent of the proceeds go toward diabetes research.
More than 25 million people in the U.S. have diabetes. Of that 25 million, about three million people in America have Type 1, or juvenile diabetes. Treatment has gotten better and there are many promising discoveries on the horizon but the fact is – right now – diabetes is a life-long, incurable disease.
Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body’s immune system destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Normally, the body’s immune system fights off foreign invaders like viruses or bacteria. For unknown reasons, in people with type 1 diabetes, the immune system attacks various cells in the body. This results in a complete deficiency of the insulin hormone.
“The effects of this disease can be debilitating,” said Job, who has a son with type 1 diabetes. “It is an honor for Constellix to support diabetes research.”
Constellix, which went live to the public in 2014 is already seeing above-average performance and getting outstanding feedback from users. The elite enterprise monitoring system has already reached more than 25 million daily checks.
“Reaching 25 million daily checks shows the increased trust users are placing in the Constellix monitoring suite of services,” Job said. “The demand for an enterprise monitoring system is evident and we have met these needs with Constellix Sonar.”
The newly released innovative enterprise monitoring service was created by the founders of DNS Made Easy and is a suite of traffic management tools designed to provide a detailed health analysis of server and network infrastructure unlike any product available in the industry today. Constellix has integrated tools that offer a range of advanced features including performance optimization, troubleshooting, real-time logging, and alert management.
About DNS Made Easy and Constellix
Constellix is a subsidiary of Tiggee LLC, the creators the DNS Made Easy, and the world leader in providing global IP Anycast enterprise DNS services. DNS Made Easy implemented the industry’s first triple independent Anycast cloud architecture for maximum DNS speed and DNS redundancy.

Supersonic’s Rewarded Video Adopted by World’s Leading Mobile Developers

Supersonic, Inc., a leading in-app monetization and user acquisition platform, today announces 300% ad impression growth in Q1 2015 as demand for its rewarded video solution skyrockets. Rewarded Video formats are becoming popular for their ability to engage users through rich video experiences while offering opt-in access to premium content. Supersonic’s Rewarded Video platform is live with publishers such as Electronic Arts, Kongregate, GREE, Pocketgems, Pretty Simple, Social Point and DeNA among others. For Brand advertisers, these formats are driving significant post-view engagement with CTR’s in the average range of 20-35%.
“We have definitely found a place for Rewarded Video advertising in our applications, we see it as a great user engagement vehicle and revenue driver. Partners like Supersonic are helping us to fuel this business and will continue to see it grow”, said Albert Custido, Socialpoint.
As the app store saturates and monetization becomes increasingly difficult, developers look for new ways to acquire and engage users. A recent Forrester study reports that user preferences shift dramatically in favor of ads when coupled with a reward based model. Rewarded formats, built atop the success of video ads, follow this inclination — boasting record eCPMs and user engagement across the board.
“Consumer consent and control is a powerful trend in digital advertising, and mobile games are leading the way in defining this new paradigm,” said Dave Madden, head of Global Media Solutions, EA. “Our players respond very positively to brands that reward them for their time and engagement, resulting in a better player experience and yielding impressive results for marketers.”
Alongside the positive effects for brands, developers report a noteworthy increase in retention and LTV for the end-user, generating a combination of revenue opportunities. Customers also cite a meaningful uptick in conversation of non-paying to paying users since the introduction of rewarded video-based ad slots.
“Delivering high quality interactive content from different providers makes Supersonic our #1 partner for in-game advertisement. Their services, performance and understanding of Criminal Case and its players are of the highest standard. Their tailored offers are not only of great benefit to Pretty Simple and Supersonic but also to our players, which is the most important thing.” said Charles Jacquet, Monetization Manager, Pretty Simple.
Supersonic’s unique Video Mediation Platform allows developers to not only access Supersonic’s demand but to also tap into the leading mobile ad networks driving Rewarded Video demand. Through a simple plug-n-play integration, developers seamlessly deploy Rewarded Video across their applications creating an instant marketplace for demand sources to bid against their inventory. At the core is an optimization engine running both on the developers supply and the advertisers demand, matching brand to user, leading to increased yield optimization and ultimately higher revenues for the developer and quality for the brand.
“User loyalty is fickle. Present too many irrelevant ads and user growth will stagger; present too little ad content and the app becomes unsustainable in a free model. Rewarded Video ads remedy this well by providing a voluntary level of commitment that users actually seek out, increasing overall engagement in a native like experience.” says Gil Shoham, CEO and Co-Founder, Supersonic.
Video ads have energized user engagement and mobile monetization driving rewarded video to the top of a developer’s arsenal. The success of reward based advertising provide big strides for industry confidence, lifting ad spend from brand advertisers from all sectors.
About Supersonic
Supersonic is the mobile advertising technology platform of choice for the app economy. Developers across the globe use the Supersonic SDK to serve beautiful video and native ads to generate significant revenue.

Macmillan Education Partners with to bring Game-Based Learning to Economics Classrooms

Worth Publishers, an imprint of Macmillan Education, and, a leader in interactive games for the college classroom, today announced a strategic partnership to provide students and faculty with access to a library of hands-on experiments, enhancing the opportunity for active and experiential learning in the economics classroom. MobLab’s experiments actively involve students by having them produce their own data as they interact in simulated markets and interactive games. This interactivity uniquely engages students in the application of concepts they are learning as they explore the inner workings of markets firsthand.
MobLab’s interactive games enable students to explore supply and demand, market interventions, imperfect competition, and more on their computers, tablets, or phones. Economics faculty can customize each game to match the needs of their courses and receive real time results and data analytics that allow them to immediately show students how their choices relate to economic theory.
“With MobLab, it’s easy for instructors to bring a variety of different experiments into their classrooms and even large lecture halls, allowing students to learn, first-hand, important economic principles and concepts based on their own decisions in these simulated markets and interactive games.” said Walter Yuan, CEO of “When you get students’ curiosity level up, learning becomes so much more intrinsically motivated and effortless.”
“The pairing of textbook content written by exceptional economists with the interactivity and student-centered learning found in MobLab’s online games and experiments provides instructors with the richest of tools to incorporate in their classrooms,” said Charles Linsmeier, VP, Editorial, Science and Social Sciences at Macmillan Education. “Few things incentivize engagement more than when students have the opportunity to utilize data they have created themselves.”
Currently in use at over 800 schools globally and nearly 300 schools in the U.S., MobLab offers students access to games for Principles of Economics, Intermediate Microeconomics, Managerial Economics, Behavioral Psychology, Game Theory, and many more. By combining MobLab access with their Worth Publishers textbook, students receive a significant savings over purchasing the tools individually. By providing faculty with full access to supporting materials, instructors can easily incorporate the experiments into their lesson plans.
