What is this magical looking bar?

UI and Macro
So prior to 5.1 I NEVER had certain bars, after 5.1 they are appearing all over the place - the bar I'm talking about is the one that does the following:

Shows feathers on Alysrazor
A Turning bar on Ryolith
Shows which Stone Guardian is petrifying in MSV
At the Darkmoon faire it shows a counter/timer for a lot of the games.

I don't know what happened with 5.1 to make these suddenly appear and I am finding them useful and what not I just would like to be able to move them. Does anyone know what they are even called (I imagine they are part of the blizzard UI as they do look very blizzardish). I don't want anything that changes how they look as I actually like the aesthetic of them they are just smack dab in the middle of my raid frames which makes them useless during a raid :(
It's called the Alternate Power Bar, and WoW has mad use of them extensively in 4.x and 5.x.

Some AddOns that let you move it:

Thank you for the addon suggestions I'll try them out - it just seems very weird to me that not a single one of these appeared prior to 5.1 and my husband (who has a very similar addon setup to mine) doesn't have them appear at all currently - so I'm not sure what addon blocks them/got changed for me with 5.1!
Probably an addon, such as bartender. It's also possible that they were always there, but hidden behind other custom UI elements. The default position is in the lower center of the screen.

The first time I remember seeing it was 4.0--Atramedes sound, Cho'gall insanity, etc.
