Press Release



updated: Sep 21, 2017 12:50 EDT

The Parking Spot, the nation’s largest owner and operator of near-airport parking properties, has announced a new tiered structure for its Spot Club rewards program. Spot Club members can now earn the ability to unlock even more savings, receive priority customer support, redeem points for travel perks such as car washes and transfer points for airline miles.

The Spot Club, which crossed the million-member mark in 2016, allows loyal guests of The Parking Spot to earn points toward free parking. The enhanced loyalty program now introduces three premium tiers: Silver, Gold and Platinum, enabling The Parking Spot to offer more benefits to its most loyal members.

All members of the Spot Club will continue to be able to redeem their Spot Club points for free parking. Silver, Gold and Platinum level members will now be awarded a free day of parking each year as of their Spot Club anniversary date and will receive additional discounts on car care that increase with each higher program tier. Gold level members will receive priority online support and will be able to redeem points for car care services. Platinum level members will receive Gold level benefits plus premium online support and the ability to transfer Spot Club points for miles with several major airline partners.

“The new tiered structure of the Spot Club is truly an upgrade. Members in the Silver, Gold and Platinum tiers will receive additional benefits, and all other members will receive the same benefits as before,” said Kevin Shrier, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Parking Spot. “This is superior to the changes often implemented by other travel-related loyalty programs, which revise but devalue rewards. The enhanced rewards for the premium tiers of the Spot Club now allow us to thank our most valued guests.”

As The Parking Spot continues to expand in 2018, travelers in Charlotte, North Carolina, and other locations under development will soon discover the benefits of the Spot Club

SHE DID IT! Grandma With Diabetes for 40 Years Bicycles Across America

Press Release



updated: Sep 21, 2017 11:00 CDT

At 17 years old, Tracy Herbert was told she would be dead in 20 years, die with horrible complications, and never be able to have children. Now, 40 years later Tracy has no complications, healthy kids, and just rode her bicycle across the United States. She left the Golden Gate Bridge June 13th on her epic 3,527-mile bicycle trek and completed her ride at the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City on September 13th.

The bicycle ride across America started off as a way to “celebrate” living 40 years with Type 1 diabetes but quickly evolved to encourage and inspire others with diabetes that they can also live a long healthy life. Now her focus is on continuing to provide hope for children, along with providing life-saving technology that so many children desperately need and aren’t able to receive. Many parents are finding their health insurance won’t cover the needs of their children, or the out-of-pocket expense is too high. 

Tracy told the kids she met along the ride, “If this old lady who has had Type 1 diabetes for almost 40 years can ride her bicycle across the country, what is stopping you from reaching your dreams?!”  So now what? She is continuing her goal of reducing the epidemic rise of diabetes in the United States and is setting up a foundation to help raise funds for children with Type 1 diabetes.

Tracy Herbert is a bestselling author, has been featured numerous times on TV, and recently spoke at Harvard about living successfully with diabetes. In May of 2016, she wrote “Diabetes Tragedy to Triumph” which chronicles the life plan and success over her 40-year journey of living with Type 1 diabetes. Tracy is available for interviews with TV, radio, newspapers, and other media outlets.  To contact Tracy, please visit www.diabetesride.com or contact Tracy directly 817-915-6311.

Superbly Designed Sports Earphones with Excellent Audio Performance and Accurate Heart Rate Sensing Technology

    HONG KONG, September 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Well Being Digital Limited announced that with almost 50 patents in its portfolio, its heart rate sensing technology (ActivHearts) for sports earphones has enabled a world leading audio brand to launch a superbly designed sports earphones with excellent audio performance and accurate heart rate sensing technology at the recent IFA 2017, which will start shipping in Oct 2017.

“ActivHearts technology detects heart rate signals using multiple infrared sensors near the ear canal, the advantage of our design results in an earbud that is much smaller and fitting to consumers especially those with smaller ears, and since the ActivHearts sensors are mounted onto the sound tube, it can achieve better acoustic quality while sensing heart rate signals more accurately,” says Co-Founder Kow Ping. In addition, ActivHearts uses Infrared light that does not get absorbed by the human skin and is therefore safer to use, similar to the technology used in hospital’s pulse oximeters.

The other designs in the market require bigger sensor that is harder to fit and uncomfortable to wear, resulting in either inaccurate heart rate signals or inferior audio quality, or both.

ActivHearts has been tested for more than 1,000 accumulated miles on users of different genders, ear shapes and skin colors. It has also been tested under different external environments such as hot, cold, wet and sunny and even under intense interval training. The results are always extremely close to the reference chestbelt.

Please order the Harman Kardon JBL Reflect Fit Heart Rate Sensing Earphones here for shipments before Xmas.

Founded in 2012, Well Being Digital Limited (WBD101) is a Hong Kong based company whose first patents are dated back to 2008, incubated by the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks (HKSTP), WBD101 has offices in Hong Kong and Shenzhen so as to provide very timely support to B2B customers during their design, testing and production phases. WBD101 focuses on very elaborate SmartBody Sensing Technology. Besides ActivHearts, it has highly accurate motion sensing technology (Mogo). Over the years, WBD101 won numerous international awards including the Best Wearable Mobile Tech Awards at the Mobile World Congress 2016, Special & Gold Awards at the 43rd Geneva Inventions Conventions and 2016 WITSA Global ICT Award.

Atlanta Hard Cider Co. Releases Flagship Cider – Crisp Apple

    ATLANTA, GA, September 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Atlanta Hard Cider Co. is excited to announce the release of their first cider, Crisp Apple, to the Atlanta market. Starting September 27th, this easy-drinking hard cider will be available in kegs and six packs of 12 oz. cans. Crisp Apple will be available for purchase in bars, restaurants, and other fine retailers such as metro Atlanta Target stores.

Crisp Apple, an easy-drinking and all-natural cider, is slightly sweet and crisp with a smooth, refreshing finish. Crafted in a traditional champagne style using 100% U.S. grown freshly-pressed whole apples, just one sip is like biting into a juicy red apple. Crisp Apple will delight cider drinkers, craft beer fans, and wine enthusiasts alike. With a great neutral taste and a 5.75% ABV, Crisp Apple can also serve as the perfect base for creating craft cocktails.

“We are literally a mom and pop run company. We started in our garage and have been homebrewing for the past 3 years; with much trial and error, we feel that we have created some great ciders for the health conscience drinker. All of our ciders are all-natural, gluten free, low in sugar, and are not overly sweet… the way traditional ciders were intended to taste,” said Atlanta Hard Cider’s CEO and Founder, Mark Deno.

Atlanta Hard Cider has six ciders in the making: Dry, Hopped, Pomegranate, Ginger, Honey, and Tart Cherry. They plan on releasing one of these flavors in the very near future, so stay tuned!

To celebrate its Atlanta launch, Atlanta Hard Cider will be hosting a launch party on Thursday, September 28th from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. The launch will take place at Stockyard Burgers in Vinings, located at: 2850 Paces Ferry Rd SE, Atlanta, GA 30339. There will be a handful of giveaways, $5 pints of Crisp Apple craft cider being served, great appetizers, and the chance to meet the owners. Atlanta Hard Cider is really looking forward to celebrating this exciting occasion alongside the local community.

About Atlanta Hard Cider Co.

Like many AMAZING ideas, Atlanta Hard Cider Co. came about over a couple of drinks… ok, maybe more than a couple. Due to a gluten intolerance, founders Mark and Liz Deno were in search of an all-natural hard cider and just couldn’t find any locally. The metaphorical light bulb went off and the dream began.

Fast forward three years later and here we are…making cider the way our founding fathers did and sharing it with our neighbors. Our cider is made from hand-picked freshly pressed U.S. apples and champagne yeast. Yep, you read that correctly, that’s it. There is absolutely nothing artificial in our ciders. We are bringing true and authentic all-natural craft cider back to the South and are really proud of that!

A cidery and tasting room for all of Atlanta to enjoy is in the works. The future address will be 1283 Marietta Blvd. Atlanta, GA 30318, right on the Atlanta Beltline Westside and is scheduled to break ground mid 2018.

Tacoma Chiropractor Dr. Pete Atkins Offers Specialized Care for Fibromyalgia Patients

Tacoma Chiropractor Dr. Pete Atkins Offers Specialized Care for Fibromyalgia Patients

In order to bring attention to one of the most misunderstood and misdiagnosed diseases, Dr. Pete Atkins with Atkins Chiropractic in Tacoma, WA is opening his doors to Fibromyalgia patients who may have seen other doctors but not found relief. Utilizing a revolutionary program called Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic, Dr. Atkins treats patients with gentle, pain-free techniques that produce rapid results.

Tacoma Chiropractor Dr. Pete Atkins Offers Specialized Care for Fibromyalgia Patients

Tacoma, WA, September 21, 2017 –(PR.com)– Fibromyalgia patients are often misdiagnosed by medical doctors because the symptoms of Fibromyalgia are difficult to track. Some people experience constant, dull aches, while others feel a mental fog. Others still feel tired even right after waking up from a good night’s rest. The problems are even further complicated when friends and family doubt a patient’s illness; “But, you don’t look sick!” is something that many Fibromyalgia patients hear, leaving them feeling hopeless.

Dr. Pete Atkins, owner of Atkins Chiropractic (a Tacoma chiropractor in University Place), is trying to help the local population of people with Fibromyalgia to not only be heard, but to also address their dis-ease through his unique specialization.

As an Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor in Tacoma, Washington, Dr. Atkins has to demystify his approach to natural health and wellness. “Many people lump all chiropractic care under the banner of cracking necks and popping backs with pain and discomfort.” Dr. Atkins mentions. “When patients come to my office and experience my specialization, all of the anxiety and concern melts away. The Atlas Orthogonal technique is gentle, pain-free, and tends to produce rapid results.”

“When patients come in for Fibromyalgia care, I help them understand that their nervous system is the culprit for the issues they are experiencing,” Dr. Atkins shares. “When your spine has issues called subluxations, it is essentially hampering the nervous system’s ability to communicate effectively with the rest of the body. By improving the spine – with particular emphasis on the atlas bone at the base of the head – I am able to help your body get back to its natural state of self-healing and self-regulating.”

In order to bring awareness to Fibromyalgia care and the results that Dr. Atkins has brought to Tacoma residents looking for relief, he is accepting fifteen new patients at a discounted rate. “The first appointment is all about uncovering the root cause of your pain, your fog, your lack of energy, and other problems that Fibromyalgia can bring,” Dr. Atkins explains. “We’ll have a clear picture of how best to proceed so that you can get healthy, stay healthy, and have the best life possible.”

Potential patients can contact Tacoma Chiropractor Dr. Pete Atkins at (253) 752-7522 or by visiting AtkinsChiropracticInc.com and clicking the Fibromyalgia image on the main page.

Vegan Chef Promotes Veganism with New Cookbook

Chef Bev promotes alternative diets with new cookbook “Nouveau V The New Renaissance of Vegan and Vegetarian Cuisine.”

Arlington, VA, September 21, 2017 –(PR.com)– Chef Bev Kumari has been sharing her version of veganism, and vegetarianism for more than 28 years. When she’s not writing recipes, and working as a chef at the Marriott in Washington, D.C., she tours throughout the country promoting her new cookbook, “Nouveau V The New Renaissance of Vegan and Vegetarian Cuisine.”

An avid animal rights activist, Chef Bev has come up with meals that not only protect the environment and animals but also satiates the palate. Recipes like her Italian vegan Bolognese, and Maple Tempeh Bacon would readily tempt the taste buds of any die hard omnivore.

“I have come up with recipes not to convert any one to veganism, but to educate meat consumers on cooking what they like using meatless products,” states Chef Bev.

She also notes that veganism is not a trend for her, as it becomes more public and mainstream with celebrities. For Chef Bev, veganism is a lifestyle in which she actively promotes animal rights. However, she believes that the conversion to a plant-based or vegan diet from watching movies like “What the Health,” “Earthlings,” and “Cowspiracy” is an excellent way of stamping out factory farming, and animal cruelty.

Nouveau V, was released on May 22, 2017 by Christian Faith Publishers and authored by Beverly Kumari, co-authored with Executive Chefs Jonathan Layton, Abdellah Aguenaou and Douglas De la Reza. Nouveau V can be found online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online retailers as well as Politics and Prose in the Washington, D.C. area.

UK Food and Drink Research: What Consumers Value, Post Brexit

A year since the UK’s EU referendum exposed striking regional divides in behaviour, the creative communications Agency Bray Leino has published a detailed report on what people in the UK really think about the food and drink in our lives.

Bristol, United Kingdom, September 21, 2017 –(PR.com)– Bray Leino’s UK Food and Drink report 2017, “The Trouble with Bubbles” examines consumers’ regional attitudes and behaviours, comparing remain-voting London with the North East and North Wales, two places Brexit was strongly supported.

Key insights include:

The desire to buy British is strong everywhere:

63% of respondents said they were concerned with buying British – with no significant differences geographically. Remain-voting Londoners were just as likely to be concerned with Britishness as people in the Brexit-voting strongholds of Wales and the North East.

Animal Welfare is consumers’ top consideration when it comes to food issues:

The top 5 considerations were GM, Britishness, Authenticity, Sustainability, and Animal Welfare. The single food issue that concerned most respondents was high animal welfare standards, with 78% claiming to be very or quite concerned. Women were more concerned about animal welfare standards than men.

Interestingly, the number of 18-24 year-olds claiming to be concerned was significantly lower than in other age groups, in stark contrast to the widely reported increases in vegetarianism and veganism amongst young people. This reflected the fact that throughout the research there was a general pattern for those living at home or with family to be more apathetic on many food issues and this group is populated mainly by young adults.

Social media is the not the go-to channel for food inspiration:

Despite social media’s ubiquitous presence and influence across so many areas of modern life, when it comes to food and drink the research indicates that the established channels still lead the way. Food and drink websites, cookbooks and cookery programmes were used far more often by consumers, with cookbooks the most popular medium for recipe ideas and inspiration (used by 42%), ahead of celebrity chefs who were influenced by 28%. Only 16% of people use Facebook and YouTube for recipe ideas.

The Report covers British attitudes towards foods, health and wellness, food fads, trends and how food and drink brands are marketed. It reveals a number of important insights on the UK food and drink map.

Lucky Envelope Brewing Celebrates Mid-Autumn Festival with Specialty Beer Releases

Lucky Envelope Brewing Celebrates Mid-Autumn Festival with Specialty Beer Releases

Seattle, WA, September 21, 2017 –(PR.com)– Lucky Envelope Brewing whose founders are of Chinese descent will celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, a harvest festival celebrated in Asia, with a small batch lotus seed paste beer release inspired by mooncakes on Saturday, September 30th at their tasting room in Ballard. Traditionally the holiday is meant to bring family and friends together and to give thanks for the autumn harvest.

“When I lived in Los Angeles near my grandmother, it was family tradition for us to get together for the Mid-Autumn Festival and Chinese New Year celebrations,” said Raymond Kwan, co-founder of Lucky Envelope. “Everybody loved our Historic Mijiaya Chinese Beer released earlier this year, so we thought it would be fun to share our mooncake-inspired lotus seed paste beer during the Mid-Autumn Festival.” Mooncakes are a baked delicacy eaten during the festival and traditionally made from lotus seed paste.

The first 30 guests who stop in on the day of the event will receive a lucky envelope with a special coupon. In addition Lucky Envelope will also be serving free mooncakes, while supplies last.

As an added bonus, in continuation of their monthly Barrel-Aged beer releases, Lucky Envelope will be releasing a vanilla imperial milk stout that has been aged for nine months. Vanilla beans add a delicious round richness to the beer’s milk chocolate and coffee notes. Lucky Envelope regularly releases a barrel-aged beer on the last Saturday of each month.

Lucky Envelope takes its name from the Chinese tradition – tied closely with the Lunar New Year celebration – of elders bestowing often red-and-gold envelopes to loved ones as a gesture of luck and goodwill. Lucky Envelope is a family-friendly craft brewery headquartered in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. The brewery has garnered accolades since its May 2015 opening, including several medals at the 2016 & 2017 Washington Beer Awards and at the prestigious 2015 Great American Beer Festival® (GABF) competition.
