Minority-Owned Begin-Up 'E book Room On-line' Goals to Assist Clients Discover Lodging Throughout Publish-Pandemic Journey Increase

July 30, 2021 ( –

After the past year and a half of quarantine, shutdowns, and travel restrictions, people are ready to get out and resume seeing the world and all it has to offer. Experts are anticipating a shortage of hotel rooms over the next year or so because of the pent-up demand. Post-pandemic, many travelers are interested in staying close to home as domestic tourists flock to Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, and Florida.

Renaissance Hotel General Manager Brian Crooks said, “The demand for that leisure travel or weekend getaway is huge. Pair it with all of the social events from last year that couldn’t happen squeezing into this year have caused for a mad dash for hotel rooms and event space every single weekend.”

The fierce demand and competition will make finding a reasonably priced hotel a lot harder for consumers — that’s where Book Room Online! comes in. The website allows users to easily browse hundreds of hotels to find the best rate. The booking process allows customers to find accommodations with the amenities that matter most to them, from free WiFi to 24h customer service and everything in between.

Director of Book Room Online Robert Lewis said, “Our travelers have enough options to choose from and complete their online bookings with ease. We have avoided the various pitfalls that come with booking exotic travel online and are extremely thrilled to offer the best hotel deals to our customers. 

Hilton, Hyatt, and Marriott chains, who were all commended for their efforts during COVID-19, are among the chains expecting to see the largest boom in the months to come. In a post-pandemic world, many hotels have eliminated in-person payment and check-in options, and instead, guests use their mobile devices to check in with the app and receive a barcode-style room “key.” Book Room Online! is dedicated to providing clean accommodations to customers and continues to keep sanitation at the top of mind.

“In this situation of a pandemic, we would like to offer protection along with relaxation,” said Lewis. “We guarantee you hygienic rooms across hotels in various places.

American Rescue Plan Funding Permits Faculty Districts to Buy Crucial Well being and Security Gear to Stop Unfold of Illness and Stop Studying Loss From COVID-19

July 30, 2021 ( –

Medify Air is excited to offer discounts and financing for schools and businesses looking to buy air HEPA air purifiers in bulk ahead of the coming academic year. A third pandemic stimulus bill called the American Rescue Plan (ARP) was signed into law in March 2021, providing public school districts across the country $122 billion in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (or ESSER III) funds. An additional $2.75 billion was allotted for non-public schools as Emergency Assistance to Non-Public Schools (or EANS) funds.

As educators begin to shift back to full-time, in-person instruction this fall, they will be able to assess the extent of their students’ learning loss and determine which interventions are best. Until then, creating a safe environment for learning is paramount.

Medify Air purifiers are equipped with HEPA H13 filters, which remove 99.9% of airborne particles down to 0.1 microns in size – that is smaller than the size of a COVID virus particle. Medify offers discounts and financing for schools and businesses looking to buy in bulk.

ESSER III and EANS funds are intended to help schools reopen quickly and safely and address significant learning loss by U.S. students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools can use ESSER III and EANS funds to remediate learning loss in several ways, including:

Purchasing health and safety equipment to help prevent the spread of diseases, such as high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) purifiers, sanitation stations, and universal cleaners.
Furniture and equipment to keep teachers, students, and staff safe and/or distanced during in-person instruction, such as individual desks and mobile chairs, tabletop screens, and personal protective equipment (PPE).
The hiring of additional personnel to keep school spaces safe and clean, such as nurses and custodians.
Purchasing outdoor furniture and equipment to account for an increase in outdoor activities and dining, such as picnic tables, benches, and portable sinks.
Hiring additional educators and support staff.
Investing in educational technology and remote learning tools, including hardware, software, and connectivity to support student learning.

These are just a few ways schools can use ESSER III and EANS funds. Interested in using your funding to purchase Medify’s HEPA H13 purifiers in bulk and saving money in the process? Speak to our team of clean air experts to determine a plan that makes the most of your school’s budget.


What is the American Rescue Plan?

How are funds allocated under ARP ESSER?

What are authorized use cases for my school’s funding?

Specifically, ARP ESSER funds may be used to develop strategies and implement public health protocols including, to the greatest extent practicable, policies in line with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on reopening and operating schools to effectively maintain the health and safety of students, educators, and other staff, as well as:

Coordinating preparedness/response efforts with state, local, tribal, and territorial public health departments to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19.
Training and professional development on sanitizing and minimizing the spread of infectious diseases.
Purchasing supplies to sanitize and clean the LEA’s facilities. 
Repairing and improving school facilities to reduce risk of virus transmission and exposure to environmental health hazards. 
Improving indoor air quality. 
Addressing the needs of children from low-income families, children with disabilities, English learners, racial and ethnic minorities, students experiencing homelessness, and foster care youth.
Developing and implementing procedures and systems to improve the preparedness and response efforts of LEAs. 
Planning for or implementing activities during long-term closures, including providing meals to eligible students and providing technology for online learning. 
Purchasing educational technology, providing mental health support services, providing summer activities and programs, and more.

Can I use ARP ESSER funds for air purifiers?

Yes, you may use up to 80% of your funding to improve your school’s air quality. Medify Air offers a wide variety of purifiers, including units with UV light disinfection, child lock, HEPA H13 filters, and large coverage area units (up to 2,500 square feet) on wheels for easy transport.

MaxTracker is the State-of-the-Artwork Resolution to Bike Theft

July 30, 2021 ( –

Bike theft cases rise about 14% each year in the United States, and bike locks do not guarantee bike safety in terms of theft, as none is a hundred percent unbreakable. The MaxTracker team has developed a game-changing device for cyclists that, in combination with a good quality lock, provides reliable security. MaxTracker is an anti-theft bike security device that is disguised as a water bottle holder. This innovation provides the real-time GPS location and sends instant alerts to a user’s phone when there is suspicious activity. It is safe, secure, waterproof, and weatherproof.

MaxTracker will be available to pre-order via Indiegogo with access to exclusive rates for early backers.

Sleek and In Disguise

Thieves would never detect this clever device as it looks like a regular water bottle holder. On average, only 6% of stolen bikes are returned to owners. MaxTracker secures users a place in this group as they’ll always have the specific location of their ride on the phone application. Forget about hefty recurring insurance payments.

No Escaping Here

MaxTracker allows owners to trace their bike in real-time 5G/LTE, whether parked or in transit. The complimentary mobile application sends out instant alerts whenever there is movement. Users have the ability to customize the motion sensitivity alerts based on their preferences. From tiny jolts to a foot away, the advanced technology of MaxTracker would be able to catch this.

For Whatever Weather

Steve Maxey, the CEO of MaxTracker, mentioned that “This device was thoughtfully designed to minimize the daily concerns of a cyclist. Whether trail riding, over the road or just cruising around town, riding a bike should be a fun and relaxing experience.”

MaxTracker is low-maintenance as a single charge provides 2+ months of battery life. Owners need not worry about weather conditions, as MaxTracker is IP67 waterproof. No matter the weather or terrain, the device is durable for any type of event.

“MaxTracker is the most effective and important component of a bike’s anti-theft security system. It doesn’t replace the necessity for a good bike lock. The lock and MaxTracker both act to enhance the effectiveness of each other. This is the state-of-the-art bike security system,” concludes Maxey.

Feature Highlights

GPS live tracking
IP67 waterproof and weatherproof
Motion alarm detection
2+ months rechargeable battery
5G/LTE connection
Polycarbonate, Nylon 12 construction
Available in five complementary colors: Black, Bright Red, Action Green, Brilliant Blue, and Glacier White
Custom order colors will be available

About MaxTracker

MaxTracker was established in 2018 in Boulder, Colorado. With the purpose of reversing the devastating losses of bike theft so bike owners are protected and the thieves go to jail.

ADD COLOR EyeDear Broadcasts the Launch of the Subsequent-Gen Wearable Eye Care Machine on Kickstarter

July 30, 2021 ( –

On the 29th of July 2021, ADD COLOR EyeDear announced its latest innovation on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform. EyeDear is a smart wearable eye care device that delivers eye care that can eliminate fatigue and dark circles. EyeDear is now available on Kickstarter: 

EyeDear is the next-generation wearable eye care device, made for eye beauty and relaxation. EyeDear can relieve the eyes to the greatest extent, allowing users to easily eliminate fatigue and dark circles. EyeDear offers three methods to care for the eyes: EMS, red light, and heating. After 60 days of consistent use, eye skin can be improved significantly. The appearance of aging around the eyes can be reduced.

EMS is a full-scale contraction exercise for the eye. It can help to promote blood circulation, repair eye wrinkles, and prevent eye muscle aging. Equipped with five EMS intensity modes, the EyeDear can help to relieve eye fatigue, eye strain, and dry eyes at the level of massage intensity users choose. 

The use of red light technology can help to reduce the appearance of aging by penetrating the skin, activating cells, and increasing the natural production of supplemented collagen.

The eye care device offers a comfortable temperature of 104° and 105°F, heating up within 60 seconds. It helps to relax and improve blood circulation around the eyes. 

The design of EyeDear is stylish and lightweight, in the shape of glasses and weighing only 45g. In addition, the device is ergonomically designed so that users can adjust it to perfectly fit their face and enjoy an eye massage at any time, no matter if they are at work or having fun.

The built-in 600mAh rechargeable battery makes the EyeDear able to last up to 72 hours on a full charge, which allows users to get an eye massage anytime and anywhere. EyeDear has already been thoroughly examined and received safety certifications, so rest assured that users can use it with peace of mind.

The EyeDear with EMS, heat, and red light technology can help to relieve eye fatigue, eye strain, and dryness. It is the perfect eye care device for daily use and is available now on Kickstarter with special offers available for early backers.

Fmr NASCAR Driver & Veteran Finishes Forward of Impeachment Voting Incumbent

July 30, 2021 ( –

Jerrod Sessler, the ultra-popular Republican challenger to impeachment-voting Rep. Dan Newhouse in WA-04, is hitting on all cylinders in his march to the Capital. Sessler, a successful businessman, made news with his announcement to run for Congress earlier this year and a campaign video that rivals Kimberly Klacik’s red-dress video in terms of uniqueness and pop. The video has garnered millions of views across platforms already. Video:

“The people of Washington state are not happy with 9 of 10 of our congressional representatives voting to impeach the greatest President of our lives in an embarrassment of an assembly that even the Chief Justice Roberts would not attend.” – Jerrod Sessler July 2021

The FEC fundraising results for the 2nd quarter of Washington’s fourth Congressional district race are out, and challenger Jerrod Sessler leads the pack. In true racing form, the Prosser businessman and former NASCAR driver has outpaced the competition, including the PAC-heavy incumbent.

“I am leading the charge to ensure Washingtonians can be proud to say they are from Washington again.” -Jerrod Sessler April 2021

According to the FEC, the total funds received in the 2nd quarter by candidates running in Washington’s 4th district are as follows:


Brad Klippert 

Loren Culp

Dan Newhouse

Jerrod Sessler






“People are tired of weak, feckless, and compromising leaders,” says Sessler. “Our grassroots, no-compromise, America-first campaign has struck a chord with the voters, and they are demonstrating their support with their pocketbooks. Every dollar is more than a donation, it’s a confirmation that we are in this for the right reasons.”

Sessler spent 2½ days on radio-row at CPAC recently and was seen with the who’s-who (Don Jr., Vernon Jones, Matt Gaetz, Lauren Boebert, and others) in conservative politics. He followed that with a trip to the Mexican border at Laredo, TX.

“My daughter and I were horrified to see what is happening at the southern border. Crooks, criminals, and terrorists are breaching the border en masse, and it is only going to get worse. This, combined with the BLM-inspired and Democrat-led defund-the-police initiative is creating a sharp and dangerous spike in crime in our cities and towns. Additionally, the humanitarian crisis at the border is heartbreaking and astounding, with dozens of people dying on a daily basis, all at the hands of this illegitimate administration and their open border policies.”

This August, Sessler plans to make another of the dozens he has made to DC to continue his campaign to bring bold leadership with integrity to Eastern Washington. Sessler also vows to return to the southern border.

FireCompass in Gartner Hype Cycle for Safety Operations, 2021

July 30, 2021 ( –

FireCompass, a leader in Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART), External Attack Surface Management (EASM) & Ransomware Attack Surface Testing (RAST), was identified as a representative vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2021. For a free copy of the “Gartner Hype Cycle Report” click here.

“We are excited to be part of two markets in Gartner Hype Cycle: ‘External Attack Surface Management (EASM)’ & ‘Autonomous Penetration Testing and Red Teaming’. This is a testament to the emergence of continuous-attack surface discovery & testing as a must-have security control for enterprises. FireCompass is changing the way testing is done and is proud to be a creator of Continuous Automated Red Teaming as a category.”

The report states, “Security testing, like network penetration testing and red teaming, plays an important role in an organization’s capabilities to identify exposures, vulnerabilities and weaknesses in their defenses. Many organizations only test on an annual or ad hoc basis, rarely testing more frequently or even continuously in their environments due to the cost and lack of internal expertise,” says Toby Busa, VP Analyst at Gartner. He further adds, “A new market of solutions is emerging that can fully or semiautomate continuous or ad hoc network and infrastructure penetration test, and red team activities.”

Apart from “Autonomous Penetration Testing and Red Teaming”, FireCompass is also mentioned in the EASM market within the Hype Cycle report. “EASM supports organizations in identifying risks from known and unknown internet-facing assets and systems,” writes Ruggero Contu (Research Director), Mitchell Schneider (Research Analyst) & Elizabeth Kim (Principal Analyst) from Gartner.

The top business impacts of Autonomous Penetration Testing and Red Teaming are:

Continuous testing of infrastructure and cybersecurity defenses of an organization helps to find gaps and mitigate weaknesses faster. 
Prevent ransomware and other hacking attacks through real-life attack emulation to discover such risks before they are exploited. 
Organizations can take advantage of penetration testing and red teaming capabilities without hiring expensive experts. 
Prioritized risks & alerts help to focus on the most critical vulnerabilities and help mitigate them faster.

FireCompass is being used by Fortune 100 manufacturing companies, Top 3 telecom companies, Fortune 500 technology companies, Top Banks & FSI organizations in the USA and across the globe. 

About FireCompass

FireCompass is a SaaS platform that uniquely combines External Attack Surface Management (EASM), Continuous Automated Red Teaming (CART) and Ransomware Attack Surface Testing (RAST).

Meet Your Latest Worker: Hazlnut Kiosks

July 30, 2021 ( –

16 months have passed since COVID-19 impacted daily lives forever. As people go back out to restaurants and return to some level of normalcy, restaurant operations have become stressed to a near breaking point. Meet Hazlnut, a company that is helping to bring new-age technology to small businesses across the country.

Hazlnut found that several local restaurants were struggling to hire serving staff, in mid-2020 they began developing a solution to help brands win big through the use of kiosks. Seamlessly integrated with popular point of sale systems such as Clover, Hazlnut Kiosks help deepen customer relationships by managing lines, increasing front of house efficiency, and providing a custom dining experience that can keep up with demand without the hassle of hiring a new employee. These Kiosks allow customers to place their own orders, giving managers the ability to reallocate staff to more pressing tasks like food prep. As a customer, entering your own order into the kiosk increases order accuracy. A request for ‘no pickles’ won’t go unheard or misheard as ‘extra pickles’.

It’s easy to be a frustrated customer without the ability to actually make a change, but Dick Sikes (Co-Founder and CEO of Hazlnut) wanted to do something about it. “With software, if you can envision it, you can build it. We come in and help lift up small businesses to help compete with bigger brands like Panera Bread and McDonald’s. It’s rewarding seeing local businesses rise to the competition,” said Sikes.

The timing is just right for such a product as well. Kiosks are quickly gaining popularity, and customers are starting to prefer them. Customers enjoy the experience of interacting with kiosks as they tend to present the menu in a clearer way (with high resolution pictures), plus restaurant owners can ensure that any ‘add-on’ mods are charged for appropriately.

Hazlnut Kiosks were launched in April 2021 at a local Jacksonville business: Larry’s Giant Subs. To guarantee customer success, Hazlnut sent a developer to be on-site during the beta testing phase. John and Angie V., the Larry’s franchisees, said, “Already planning to purchase more for our other locations!” after three successful months with Hazlnut Kiosks. On July 1, 2021, the Hazlnut Kiosks were officially announced to the public.

Hazlnut connects restaurants directly to customers through e-commerce, online sales and point of sale systems such as Clover, which is used in millions of restaurants worldwide. This saves time for employees so that they don’t have to pick up the phone as often and can focus on who they are serving in stores. Wait time decreases and every order can be filled faster.
