Decarbonizing for a Circular Economy through Advanced Design, Technology & Environmental Services

NORTH YORK, ONTARIO, CANADA, April 15, 2021 / — CharTech Solutions, an operating group of CHAR Technologies, has proprietary High Temperature Pyrolysis (HTP) technology which converts woody-biomass and challenging organic waste streams (wood wastes, sludge, biosolids, digestate and others) into three renewable and valuable outputs:

• Renewable gases: a portion of the solid feedstock is converted into a hydrogen-rich syngas, from which purified hydrogen can be separated, or the syngas can be converted into renewable natural gas.

• Heat: the HTP process is autothermal – that is, it creates its own energy and does not need external heat sources. Additional heat can be captured for various industrial heat load requirements.

• Biocarbons (biochar): the HTP process generates a solid carbon product. This can be used as pollutant filter (activated charcoal, SulfaCHAR), as a replacement for coal (biocoal, CleanFyre) or as a biochar fertilizer additive or soil amendment. These biocarbons not only offset more resource intensive alternatives, but also fix carbon in an extremely stable form, thereby utilizing the natural “carbon capture” processes of the feedstocks, and further sequestering that carbon.

Garten Whirlpool

Whirlpools, Outdoor Whirlpool, Swim Spas

Swim Spas

Swim Spas Modell EP14

Nachdem die jährlichen Verkaufsstückzahlen bereits all die Jahre zuvor im zweistelligen Bereich gestiegen sind, ist der Auftragseingang 2020 explodiert

GRAZ, AUSTRIA, April 15, 2021 / — Artesian Spas ist seit mehr als 2 Jahrzehnten ein Begriff im Bereich Whirlpools und einer der Erfinder der Swim Spas. Aus dem Familienunternehmen mit Sitz und Produktion in Las Vegas hat sich über die Jahre der weltgrößte amerikanische Produzent entwickelt. War man zu Beginn ein Nischenplayer bei Whirlpools im obersten Segment, wurde durch die Übertragung dieser sehr hohen Qualitätsansprüche auch auf einfachere Modelle der Whirlpool und Swim Spa Markt von Jahr zu Jahr immer mehr erobert. Seit 2020 ist Artesian Spas der größte amerikanische Hersteller von Whirlpools und Swim Spas.

Eine ähnliche Entwicklung hat das Geschäft von Artesian Spas auch in Europa genommen. Betreut wird ganz Europa von zwei Distributionslagern. Eines hat seinen Sitz in England in Doncaster. Das zweite von dem auch Deutschland, Schweiz und Österreich betreut werden mit der Lieferung von Whirlpools und Swim Spas hat seinen Sitz in Österreich in Graz. An diesen Standorten stehen jeweils cirka 3000m2 an Lagerfläche zur Verfügung und sämtliche Länder Europas werden mit Swim Spas und Whirlpools beliefert. Waren dies in den Jahren zuvor jährlich etwa 2000 Swim Spas und Whirlpools so konnten 2020 mehrs als 8000 Whirlpools und Swim Spas verkauft werden. Damit hat sich die jährliche Stückzahl in Europa etwa vervierfacht. Insbesondere großer Dank gebührt dafür dem Team rund um unseren Geschäftsführer von Artesian Spas Europe Ing.Mag. Egon Gruber der seit 16 Jahren die Geschicke unseres Unternehmens in Europa maßgeblich mitgestaltet.

Sehr stark gewachsen ist besonders der Whirlpool Markt in Deutschland. 2020 wurden 3 neue Megastores in Deutschland eröffnet. Diese befinden sich in Ulm, Nürnberg und Hamburg. Damit verfügt Artesian Spas auch in Deutschland über ein flächendeckendes Netz an Schauräumen und konnte erstmalig über 1000 Stück in Deutschland absetzen. Mit den 4 Schauräumen in der Schweiz, den 7 in Österreich gibt es nun gesamt 20 Schauräume im deutschsprachigen Raum für Whirlpools und Swim Spas von Artesian Spas. Zukünftig ist noch ein Schauraum in Berlin geplant um die letzte Lücke zu schließen.

Wir freuen uns über das bereits erreichte und auf viele weitere Jahre eines erfolgreichen Geschäftsverlaufes um auch in Deutschland in einigen Jahren die Nummer 1 zu sein. In Österreich ist Artesian Spas bereits seit einigen Jahren die meistverkaufte Whirlpool Marke.

Yellowstone’s Forrie J Smith Collaborates with Oak & Eden to Launch New Product Series

DALLAS, TX, USA, April 15, 2021 / — Oak & Eden In-Bottle Finished Whiskey has embarked into unprecedented territory with the release of their latest product line, The Anthro Series, a revolving line of unique whiskeys crafted in collaboration with some of America’s most notable personalities, from actors to musicians to professional athletes. This product series is made possible by Oak & Eden’s patented process of In-Bottle Finishing, whereby a spiral-cut piece of oak (called a spire) is placed into every bottle of fully-aged whiskey, introducing new flavor profiles and characteristics that didn’t exist in the original aging barrel. Oak & Eden then has the opportunity to infuse the spire with another libation, such as wine, coffee, beer, liqueur, etc., giving the ability to customize each bottle of whiskey at individual level. The personalities they partner with have the ability to customize their product by selecting the base whiskey (bourbon, rye, wheated bourbon, or four grain bourbon), the alcohol proof (90 proof or 116 proof), the spire wood species (American Oak, French Oak, maple wood, cherry wood), and then an infusion selected by the personality. The entire Anthro Series lineup will be exclusively distributed direct-to-consumer and is currently available to purchase online in 32 states.

Oak & Eden has launched The Anthro Series with none other than one of America’s most beloved television personalities, American cowboy & actor, Forrie J Smith, or better known as Lloyd Pierce from Paramount Network’s hit TV show, Yellowstone. Forrie collaborated with Oak & Eden to produce a 116 proof bourbon whiskey finished with a cold brew coffee soaked American Oak spiral, which has already caught the attention of fans and bourbon enthusiasts alike.

Oak & Eden also partnered with professional skier & entrepreneur, Kina Pickett, a rising name who has recently been the poster child for Matador Network’s Beyondland Roadtrip campaign, in partnership with Airstream. Kina collaborated with Oak & Eden to produce a 90 proof bourbon whiskey finished with a maple syrup soaked American Oak spiral.

“The Anthro Series is the pinnacle of the Oak & Eden brand,” says Brad Neathery, cofounder & CMO of Oak & Eden, “We are giving the power to the people, allowing them to create their own one-of-a-kind whiskey on their terms, not ours. This is only the beginning of a much larger initiative, and we couldn’t be more honored to partner with Forrie and Kina to kick off the Anthro Series.”

Oak & Eden has secured additional personalities to collaborate with for future releases inside the Anthro Series, but has not yet disclosed the names.

NovaBACKUP becomes HIPAA certified by the Compliancy Group

HIPAA Seal of Compliance

HIPAA Seal of Compliance

NovaBACKUP HIPAA-Compliant Hybrid Cloud Backup Solution

NovaBACKUP HIPAA-Compliant Hybrid Cloud Backup Solution

NovaBACKUP has demonstrated its commitment to uphold HIPAA compliance standards by completing Compliancy Group’s exclusive HIPAA compliance program.

Now NovaBACKUP is a certified HIPAA-compliant local and cloud-based backup and disaster recovery solution that can be conveniently reinforced with a Business Associates Agreement (BAA).”

— Mike Andrews, NovaBACKUP’s CEO

AGOURA HILLS, CA, USA, April 15, 2021 / — Reaffirming its commitment with the Dental and Healthcare industries, NovaBACKUP is pleased to announce that it has completed an exclusive compliance certification process with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Through the use of Compliancy Group’s proprietary HIPAA verification program, The Guard, NovaBACKUP now holds the Seal of Compliance under their regulatory compliance program.

"Not all data backup companies fully address their HIPAA compliance, but with the increase in hackers targeting patient data, using a HIPAA compliant data backup company has never been more important. NovaBACKUP's commitment to HIPAA shows that they truly care about keeping their clients’ data safe, and will prove to be a great asset for their differentiation in the market," Paul Redding, VP Partner Engagement and Cyber Security, Compliancy Group.

The Seal of Compliance is issued to organizations that have gone above and beyond to implement an effective HIPAA compliance architecture using The Guard. HIPAA is made up of a set of regulatory standards governing the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive healthcare data called protected health information (PHI). PHI is defined as any individually identifiable healthcare-related information. If vendors who service healthcare clients come into contact with PHI in any way, those vendors must also be HIPAA compliant.

Although taking this step is not legally required for data protection providers, NovaBACKUP has gone the extra mile to complete Compliancy Group’s Implementation Program, adhering to the necessary regulatory standards outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Breach Notification Rule, Omnibus Rule, and HITECH. Compliancy Group has verified NovaBACKUP’s good faith effort to uphold HIPAA compliance standards through The Guard.

“Attaining the Compliancy Group seal demonstrates our dedication to the extra steps we take to safeguard our customer’s Protected Health Information (PHI). Now NovaBACKUP is a certified HIPAA-compliant local and cloud-based backup and disaster recovery solution that can be reinforced with Business Associates Agreements (BAA) for an enhanced level of trust.”, states Mike Andrews, NovaBACKUP’s CEO.

Clients and patients are becoming more aware of HIPAA compliance requirements and how the regulations protect their personal information. When considering backup solutions, starting with vendors who have completed specialized HIPAA training can help to check-off many of the requirements that healthcare providers have, saving valuable time. Forward-thinking technology providers like NovaBACKUP choose the Seal of Compliance to differentiate their services.

About NovaBACKUP:
NovaBACKUP Corporation specializes in local and cloud-based backup and disaster recovery for managed service providers and professional offices. With over a million machines protected and over twenty years in the market, NovaBACKUP’s goal is to deliver high-performance, reliable and affordable data protection worldwide.

About Compliancy Group:
HIPAA should be simple. That’s why Compliancy Group is the only HIPAA software with expert Compliance CoachesTM holding your hand to simplify compliance. Built by auditors, Compliancy Group gives you confidence in your compliance plan to reduce risk, increase patient loyalty, and profitability of your organization.

Renegade Golf Course

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, April 15, 2021 / — By a resounding member vote of 81% in favor, a new membership program is now in place at the prestigious Desert Mountain Club and community in Scottsdale, Arizona. In 2020, Desert Mountain Club experienced a record number of membership sales, welcoming more than 200 new members across all categories, including Full Golf, Seven Golf and Lifestyle.

A target of 1950 golf members has been established so that all members will have ease of access to Club amenities, services, and golf. There is high demand for real estate and memberships at Desert Mountain Club, the only private community in the world with six Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, including the recently renovated Renegade, and No. 7 at Desert Mountain™, a USGA-rated, championship par-54 course with an 18-hole layout, playing at full length to 3,114 yards.

Among the recent changes in membership policies were the elimination of a transfer fee when exiting the Club and the removal of a requirement for members to replace themselves. The club will now set initiation pricing for new members to join, versus the member-set “market-based” pricing model that was put in place seven years ago. Due to a number of positive contributing factors, the desire to live and play in 8,000 acres at Desert Mountain Club has been elevated. The 35-year-old Club has just established a waiting list for all categories of club membership. Property ownership within the community now takes priority when applying for a membership.

“This is an exciting change for all who call Desert Mountain home,” said Damon DiOrio, CEO of Desert Mountain Club. “It brings certainty to those who wish to exit when the time is right, and simplicity for those who are ready to join. The development of this program has been years in the making, and we are thrilled that our members have agreed to take this important step with us. We remain committed to creating exceptional experiences for our members and their families to enjoy for generations to come.”

While seven golf courses remain at the heart of Desert Mountain Club, new programming and amenities are evolving to serve the club’s growing interests and younger population. Members have access to 10 restaurants and grills, a nine-court tennis complex with three different playing surfaces, horseback riding, bocce ball, pickleball, croquet, Pilates, luxury camping, world-class spa, and 20-miles of hiking trails, mountain biking, and much more.

Membership Opportunities
Prospective members are encouraged to contact Membership Sales for current pricing information.

All of the unparalleled amenities the club has to offer are available to you as a Desert Mountain Full Golf member.

Privileges with this membership include the ability to access all Desert Mountain amenities with the exception of the six Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses. Full access will be provided to the No. 7 at Desert Mountain golf course, all practice facilities and the Jim Flick Golf Performance Center. This membership may be upgraded to a Full Golf Membership.

Privileges with this membership include the use of the beautiful Sonoran spa and fitness center, access to seven unique and different clubhouses, ten restaurants and grills, hiking and biking trails and numerous social clubs. This membership may be upgraded to a Seven Golf or Full Golf Membership.

For further information or application details, please contact the membership sales department at 480/595-4110 or by email at

Application and invitation for membership to the club is required for all categories of membership. Waitlists may apply to all categories of membership with prioritization being placed on property ownership. Application approval and a $5,000 deposit will be required to be placed onto our waiting list.

CSA Research Releases 2021 Language Services and Technology Market Growth Scenarios

language services market sizing growth of lsps

CSA Research’s Global Language Services Market Sizing

Firm predicts final figures for 2020 will show revenue below pre-COVID forecast of US$51.94 billion; cautions on sizing market based on only the largest LSPs

BOSTON, MA, USA, April 15, 2021 / — Uncertainty tied to the COVID-19 pandemic produced a roller-coaster of economic results that undermined even the most reliable statistical forecasting models. In 2020, for the first time in 15 years, independent market research firm CSA Research did not release its annual sizing and forecast for the language services and technology market. Instead, in November of 2020, it released three possible forecast scenarios to provide guidance for 2020 and 2021.

Recently, they published updates to the three scenarios, “Sizing the Language Industry: March 2021 Update.” The report is based on CSA Research’s analysis of data from its 2019 and 2020 Global Market Surveys and macroeconomic trends, as well as 4,296 responses to a series of surveys with LSPs, freelance linguists, buyers of translation services, and technology developers.

As of March 2021, CSA Research’s analysis indicates that the language services industry as a whole experienced flat to barely positive growth through the first three quarters of 2020 compared to 2019, but it experienced a strong fourth quarter that boosted the industry into positive territory. The firm predicts that final figures for 2020 will show revenue below the pre-COVID forecast of US$51.94 billion, but will perform near the upper range predicted in November 2020.

Sizing the Market: A Statistically Valid Forecast
Since 2015, the Top 100 LSPs have grown an average of 83% faster than the rest of the market – a figure that has varied considerably from year to year – thereby increasing their absolute and relative share of the market. As a result, projecting the market size from the largest companies will tend to overstate overall growth, often by a significant amount.

This is particularly true of the last year (March 2020 – March 2021). Data in the report shows that smaller LSPs experienced significantly greater volatility during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Calculating a statistically valid size of the language industry requires detailed knowledge, stringent methodologies, and a true representative sample,” comments the firm’s CEO, Tahar Bouhafs. “It is not as simple as drawing a correlation between how the largest LSPs grew and equating that growth with the health of the entire market.”

For 16 years, CSA Research has conducted a comprehensive market sizing study, which includes a 50-question survey, to develop an accurate state of the language services industry and avoid problems found in other industry sizing reports, such as double counting of revenue or unverified financials. CSA Research’s ranking of the largest LSPs in the world and comprehensive market industry reports will be published after all financials for 2020 are available, verified, and validated. Join this mailing list to be notified when the report is released.

About CSA Research
CSA Research, formerly Common Sense Advisory, is the premier market research firm specializing in the language services and technology industry. It provides primary data and insight to assist companies with planning, brand strategy, innovation, competitive positioning, and better understanding of global markets. An independent market research company, its trusted and verified data helps companies profitably grow their international businesses and gain access to new markets and new customers.

100% recyclable sustainable trays for Veroni’s authentic Italian charcuterie

Veroni’s eco-friendly packaging

The family-owned cured meat producer introduces eco-friendly charcuterie packaging that perfectly ensures the freshness of their products imported from Italy

CORREGGIO , EMILIA – ROMAGNA , ITALY , April 15, 2021 / — There is 75% less plastic in Veroni’s new charcuterie packaging. The Italian, family-owned cured meat producer has developed innovative, sustainable trays to preserve the freshness, aroma, and taste of the authentic Italian charcuterie the company has been importing in the US since 2016. Once having enjoyed the delicious Veroni’s Italian prosciutto, coppa, or mortadella, you can easily dispose of the packaging separately in the proper paper and plastic recycling bins.
“We have developed a packaging that ensures the high-quality of our cured cuts and, at the same time, has a low environmental impact”, explains marketing manager, Emanuela Bigi. “While our mission is to offer US consumers the experience of savoring 100% Made in Italy charcuterie, we are committed to sustainability on every level. With the new trays, we aim to team up with environmentally conscious consumers, offering them an option that resonates with their choices.”

Paper from responsibly managed forests

Veroni is gradually introducing the new packaging in the US grocery stores, after having launched them in Italy and other European countries. The trays are made of recyclable plastic and FSC-certified paper. The Forest Stewardship Council® promotes responsible management of the world's forests and its label traces paper that comes from responsibly managed forests.
“Our R&D team has been able to cut the amount of plastic used for our trays by 75%: currently, this is a whopping achievement in the industry”, adds R&D manager, Lorenzo Ferrara. “As a fresh food, charcuterie requires high-performing packaging that guarantees the quality and safety of the product. We are delighted to have won the challenge to assure the same standards provided by traditional trays while using paper as a key component”.
The trays combine a completely transparent film top that can be put in plastic recycling and a thermoformed paper bottom to throw into paper recycling.

Enjoying the authentic taste of Italian charcuterie

With recipes passed down over centuries and the slow production processes that help the flavors to shine, the authentic Italian charcuterie stands out for its high quality and unique, incredible taste. Veroni imports its cured cut directly from the company’s facilities based in Emilia-Romagna, a region with a long-standing tradition in salumi production and known as the Italian food valley. Sliced at the Veroni’s plant in NJ, the charcuterie offer includes a selection of Italian traditional salami such as Salame Milano, Salame di Parma and Salame Calabrese, and Italian specialty such as Prosciutto, Coppa, Speck and Mortadella. The “Antipasto Italiano” trays combine the charcuterie with cheese for an easy to prepare board. Thanks to the new eco-friendly packaging, Veroni’s charcuterie are not only good to enjoy, but also good for the environment.
