Win Modular Series BAIBA

  1. Win Modular Series BAIBA


    At Antaeus Labs we're pleased to finally be able to confirm the upcoming release of our sole-ingredient BAIBA product as part of the Modular Series. Yes, we've been promising this product for months now, and each assurance that it would be out "in a few weeks" has so far come to naught. But this time we're confident that it's finally about to drop, and to make up for the delay we'd like to give away a few tubs of this brand new product.

    Five winners will each win a tub of Modular Series BAIBA.

    Beta-aminoisobutyric acid, or BAIBA for short, represents a new paradigm in the weight-loss equation.

    When you exercise, benefits of that exercise are seen in parts of the body that weren't even exercised. These metabolic benefits are understood to be the result of "messenger" molecules that are released into the blood stream and travel to other tissues where the benefits of exercise are realised. One such messenger molecule, or "myokine", is the amino acid beta-aminoisobutyric acid.


    • Exercise mimetic
    • Metabolic booster
    • Thermogenic

    BAIBA is an amino acid that your body produces in response to exercise. After being released into the blood stream, it starts a thermogenic program in fat tissue, raising energy expenditure and reducing weight gain when tested in mice. When mouse or human white fat cells are exposed to BAIBA, they become fat-burning "beige" fat cells. Beige (or BRITE) fat cells contain the protein UCP-1 - also known as "thermogenin" because it burns triglycerides to produce heat.

    Antaeus Labs Modular Series BAIBA contains just the naturally-occurring amino acid BAIBA, in powder form for easy dosing. It's tasteless and odorless, and mixes well with a soft drink or protein shake. It is suitable for both men and women.


    BAIBA isn't the only thing to have been delayed over the years; there are numerous examples of building projects overrunning and going overbudget, movies getting stuck in "development hell", and game releases being put back by months or even years - and that's the theme of our puzzle.
    Solve each clue and fill the answers into the grid to reveal a word spelled downwards in the shaded squares. The bolded words are anagrams of the answers, the numbers in brackets indicate how long the words are that comprise the answer, and a few letters have already been filled in to help you get started.

    1. A term for software (often games) that has been announced, then subsequently delayed, and often will never be released. Prewar ova. (9)
    2. This US airport was completed 16 months behind schedule and nearly $2 billion over budget. Nor an inadvertent lie. (6,13)
    3. Video game fans are patiently awaiting this next installment of Gordon Freeman's adventures. Fall here, thief. (4,4,5)
    4. This author of "Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid" has an eponymous law stating that "It always takes longer than you expect..." Host farted. (10)
    5. A classic example of #1, this video game was announced in 1997 - and finally released in 2011. Ken revoked emu fur. (4,5,7)
    6. This Typhoon fighter aircraft, manufactured by a consortium of European aerospace manufacturers, suffered years of delays and exceeded the estimated budget by billions of dollars. Other figure. (11)
    7. This performing arts venue (where Arnold Schwarzenegger won his final Mr Olympia), the ______ _____ House, was designed in 1956, and the original estimated cost of the project was $7 million. It was finally completed and opened in 1973 at an eventual cost of $102 million. Yes, a red pony. (6,5)

    You can use Google (or another search engine of your choice) to help find the answers. I think all of them except perhaps #1 are reasonably easy to find that way.
