“Ready for Ron” Team Growing, Generating Tremendous Support, Amplifying Pro-DeSantis Message

Ready for Ron

Ready for Ron, a draft committee encouraging Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President is seeing growing momentum as the only credible organization working to draft, and elect, Ron DeSantis President in 2024. Ready for Ron launched an advertising and grassroots mobilization effort in late May to convince Ron DeSantis he has the support to win the Presidency in 2024. The PAC also filed a formal Advisory Opinion Request with the Federal Election Commission to defend their right to share the names of Draft petition signers with Governor DeSantis to convince him to run –an act of Constitutionally protected political speech. A new draft advisory opinion from the FEC is expected in the coming days. In addition to the progress at the FEC, a series of recent op-eds and news coverage show the significant and growing support DeSantis has throughout the country among political veterans and grassroots activists alike: Ed Rollins, Ready for Ron Senior Strategist wrote for FoxNews.com “…An alternative is clearly needed, and worthy up-and-comers like Gov. Ron DeSantis exhibit many of the same leadership qualities that made Reagan so successful. Americans are ready for a leader like DeSantis to reclaim Reagan’s vision for America, follow in Donald Trump’s footsteps, and lead from the front… Vanessa Porras, a Venezuelan immigrant, software engineer, cybersecurity consultant, and advocate for Ready for Ron PAC wrote for TownHall.com, “…Americans don’t need politicians who experiment with socialist policies, such as student load cancellation. In 2024, we need an actual leader who is willing to call out the radical Left…Ron DeSantis is that leader. We as ‘Ready for Ron’ because we’re ready to defeat socialism – before it’s too late..." Business executive, author, commentator, and Ready for Ron advocate, Joseph Semprevivo wrote in the South Florida Sun Sentinel, “Ron’s results speak for themselves. Florida-based employers have added jobs for 27 consecutive months, exceeding the national rate for 16 consecutive months since April 2021…Business expansion. Job creation. Economic growth. Those are the staples of the DeSantis platform, and Floridians are ready to see it go national. All Americans should be ready for Ron’s resurgence…” Lilian Rodrigues Baz, Ready for Ron’s Chief Legal Counsel wrote in The Washington Times, “…From Florida to the blue states north and west, America is ready for Mr. DeSantis. He will make America great again, carrying on the Trump tradition and inspiring hope in our country yet again. It can’t come soon enough…” “Americans want more Florida-style freedom and prosperity, not more inflation, crime, and out of control spending we get from the Biden Administration, stated Lilian Rodríguez-Baz. “We are building the biggest grassroots movements ever, and with support for DeSantis growing like this, it will happen even quicker than anticipated.” “We are 100 percent committed to drafting and electing Ron DeSantis in 2024. Ron DeSantis is the best choice to carry the America-First agenda forward,” Ed Rollins said. “In record time, Joe Biden has undone so much of what was gained, and is poised to do more harm to our country. In this time of crisis, we need a new kind of young, energetic, charismatic leadership to stand up for America.” Ready for Ron continues its TV and online advertising efforts to engage with the tens of thousands of Americans who already signed the petition at www.ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with a ‘Ready for Ron’ spokesperson or advocate, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or dan@readyforron.com Contact Details Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 dan@readyforron.com Company Website https://www.readyforron.com/

Synthetic speech startup Murf AI raises $10Mn Series A to help your words find a voice

Murf

Murf AI, a fast-growing synthetic speech technology startup that is transforming the way voiceovers are created, is today announcing a $10M Series A funding round led by Matrix Partners India with participation from existing investor Elevation Capital, as well as prominent angel investors such as Ajay Arora - SVP Product, Disney Streaming, Ankit Bhati - Founder, Ola, Ashwini Asokan - Founder, Mad Street Den, Pushkar Mukewar - Founder, Drip Capital and Yamini Bhat - Founder, Vymo. Murf plans to use these funds to drive further product innovation, accelerate R&D, and scale its presence in focused geographies. Founded in October 2020 by IIT-Kharagpur class mates Sneha Roy, Ankur Edkie, and Divyanshu Pandey, Murf provides an AI-enabled SaaS tool that allows users to generate “human-like” voice overs for videos and presentations—without the need for complex recording equipment or hiring a voice artist. In May of 2021, the company raised a $1.5M Seed funding round led by Elevation Capital and a few angel investors which helped them recruit talent, invest in product innovation, and user acquisition. Since then, Murf has grown 22x in ARR and synthesised 1 million+ voice over projects. According to market reports, the global text to speech market is expected to reach $7.06B by 2028, growing at a 14.7% CAGR. In addition, the voiceover and the dubbing market is predicted to generate a total of $8B annually by 2027. Tapping into this unparalleled opportunity, Murf aims to make high-quality voice overs accessible to all by placing a simple yet powerful online voice studio in the hands of every content creator. From conversational to aspirational, casual to authoritative, excited to sad, cheerful to angry, Murf’s AI voices can simulate a variety of speaking styles and tones. The firm has a high-quality AI voice for every use case, including eLearning, advertising, podcasting, L&D, and audiobooks. While text to speech has been around for years, limitations in quality restricted the usage of the technology to primarily IVR and chat bots. Recent advances in AI and deep learning have however made it possible to build synthetic voices that mimic the natural prosody and pronunciation of human speech. Murf’s AI engine has been trained on hours of actual human speech to produce high-fidelity synthetic AI voices that mimic the nuances and subtleties, including the likeness, style, and uniqueness of the human voice. The 120+ human-parity AI voices offered by Murf Studio across 20+ languages are rich with emotion and intonation. The startup is also working towards bridging the diversity gap that exists in traditional text to speech platforms by ensuring the inclusion of voices across varied accents like African American, British, and Australian English. “Synthetic media is poised to become omnipresent in the near future and voice is at the core of it. At Murf, we continue to make advances in our speech technology to bring the diverse abilities of talented voice actors at our customers’ fingertips through AI. This Series A investment would further bolster our commitment towards simplifying and scaling voiceovers,” said Ankur Edkie, Co-Founder and CEO, Murf AI. Akin to the human brain, Murf’s AI-powered TTS can track and learn from a vast amount of contextual information to return a relevant response. Serving as an all-in-one voice solution, its simple-to-use AI voice generator enables users to add images, videos, and background music and sync the voiceover with the visuals and music. The platform also offers key features for smart pronunciations using IPA, voice customizations that enable users to change pitch, pause, emphasis, and speed, and ability to clone a voice. "AI-driven, life-like voiceovers are the next frontier in the text to speech market. Murf, with their stellar founding team and unique IP, is perfectly poised to gain a leadership position in this space. Their execution prowess and tech-first focus is evident in the solid traction and growth that they've demonstrated so far. We are really excited to double down on our partnership with Murf.", commented Mukul Arora, Co Managing Partner, Elevation Capital. “We’re big believers that AI will reinvent every market and Murf is reinventing a multi-billion dollar category with their AI-voiceover technology. Creating voiceovers is hard, and Murf’s unique IP makes it easy for every individual to create emotional and theatrical voices—faster, better, and cheaper. With phenomenal customer love and international traction, Murf is an early category leader and we’re excited to partner with Ankur, Sneha, and Divyanshu on their next phase of growth,” commented Pranay Desai, Principal, Matrix India. About Murf AI Murf helps businesses simplify the process of creating natural-sounding voiceovers using AI. The firm’s AI-powered Saas tool enables users to create lifelike voices for their content in a matter of minutes. From L&D, educators, authors, and podcasters to animators, product developers, YouTubers, freelancers, and corporate coaches, the platform has a voice for every creator across all industries.

Indie Political Podcast Celebrates 1 Million Downloads in first 18 Months

UNFTR

Unf*cking the Republic (UNFTR) surpassed one million downloads in its first 18 months. The New York-based podcast covers political, economic and socioeconomic issues from a progressive perspective and regularly ranks among the most popular leftist political podcasts in the United States and Canada. Unf*cking the Republic (UNFTR), the popular independent political podcast covering economic and socioeconomic issues, recently surpassed one million downloads. The show was given an early boost when The New York Times called it “consistently compelling and educational, aiming to challenge conventional wisdom and upend the historical narratives that we’re taught in school. The host, a ‘quasi-anonymous political writer,’ according to the podcast’s synopsis, approaches the show with a playful and often coarse tone that never undermines the rigorous, serious content of its episodes.” The decision to host the podcast anonymously was made in an effort to put the content center stage instead of building a personality-driven show. The show is written and hosted by self-proclaimed “basic white guy” under the pseudonym “Max” and is co-hosted by the show’s producer known only as “99.” Sound design and engineering for the pod is provided by Manny Faces, an award winning producer and journalist based in Atlanta, GA. “We’re obviously beyond thrilled at the reception to the show,” said Max. “In order to move past the gimmicky nature of unknown hosts, which made it impossible to leverage social media in any meaningful way, we knew that the content had to be air tight and top notch. Word of mouth and support from our audience has allowed us to break through the clutter more than even we anticipated.” UNFTR launched in late 2020 with a handful of introductory episodes to establish the format and lay the groundwork for what would become a weekly foray into American politics, history, economics and socioeconomics. UNFTR officially launched the weekly format in March 2021. Its most popular episodes to date are “The Economics of Racism,” a two-part series titled “Libertarians are Exhausting” ( Part 1 & Part 2 ) and a deep dive into The Chicago School of Economics in which the hosts examine the life and legacy of the show’s arch nemesis Milton Friedman. “We approach American political history and current events through a progressive lens but take great pains to provide a balanced, nuanced and exhaustive account of public policy,” continues Max. “Sourcing and research are critical to the success. Attention to detail, providing clear and accurate information and taking a balanced approach despite the sometimes tawdry language has allowed us to forge a rather unique bond with our listeners. In return, they support the show both financially and intellectually as many of the topics come from the audience.” UNFTR is available on all major streaming platforms and more information about the show and the entire catalog can be found at UNFTR.com. The show is funded entirely by donations, memberships and a coffee partnership with a native roasting company based on the Poospatuck Reservation on Long Island. None of the content is gated and all of the episode essays can be found at unftr.substack.com. Contact Details Unf*cking The Republic Max unftrpod@gmail.com Company Website https://www.unftr.com/

Minuteman Press Franchise in Cherry Hill, NJ Celebrates 30 Years in Business

Minuteman Press International Inc

When Frank Bittner, Jr. first worked alongside his dad Frank, Sr., it was March of 1990. “I was 17, still in high school, and it was the summer before senior year,” reflects Frank, Jr. “I was working on bindery and making deliveries for our Trenton shop, which we owned for two years before opening our Minuteman Press franchise in Cherry Hill. It’s amazing to think that was 32 years ago.” In October 1992, Frank, Sr. opened Minuteman Press in Cherry Hill, and 30 years later, Frank, Jr. and his wife Kelly are still owning and operating the family business. Frank, Jr. says, “The chance to work side by side with my dad for all those years was incredibly special. I started managing the shop in 1997, and Kelly and I bought the shop from my dad 5 or 6 years ago. My Uncle Joe also came on board early on and runs our Hainesport shop today, so this truly is a family business all the way around.” Keys to Success Frank doesn’t hesitate when sharing the biggest key to success for Minuteman Press in Cherry Hill. He says, “We build relationships with our clients, and we simply do not give them a reason to leave us.” He continues, “We’ve had many clients for over 20 years, and some since Day 1. For example, we’ve been working with some of the local car dealerships since we opened. Once customers find you and know they can rely on you, cost is not a factor because there is real trust in that relationship.” “What it really comes down to is being personable, developing that trust, and forming a tight bond that leads to residual / repeat customers. Providing that personal service along with the products they need is how we’ve been successful.” -Frank Bittner, Jr., Owner, Minuteman Press, Cherry Hill, NJ Expanding Products & Services During the pandemic, Minuteman Press in Cherry Hill remained open and operating as an essential business. As a result, Frank saw a trend that continues to help his business today. He shares, “One thing we noticed during the pandemic was that a lot of local municipalities were spending, buying additional products from us we hadn’t done for them previously. We had a rise in sales from those municipal groups, townships, and county offices. As a result, we are now taking more orders from them today, such as plastic ID cards and plaques for their employees. We already had done some of their printing for retractable banners, carbonless forms, and envelopes, and now we are getting to do more.” Just by contacting other local businesses during the pandemic to see how they were doing has helped increase business today. Frank shares, “We wanted to simply show that we care and still available to help our clients. At that time, we put a strong focus on in-house Every Door Direct Mail, and our EDDM business really took off.” He adds, “In addition to mailings, clients are now coming back to us with orders for trade show supplies, wide format printing, promo products, apparel, items for community events and job fairs, raffles and tickets for local events, and more.” “I think people still want something in their hands. They might be used to their phones but having a tangible printed marketing piece that shows bullet-points is special. Print will always be a vital tool of information.” -Frank Bittner, Jr. Marketing the Business Cherry Hill, NJ is the largest suburb in New Jersey outside of Philadelphia. It is home to mostly small to mid-sized businesses, as well as local schools and organizations. To market his business in Cherry Hill, Frank has followed the Minuteman Press system for over 30 years. Frank says, “I am in the same two networking groups that my dad first joined, the Voorhees Business Association (VBA) and the Marlton Business Association (MBA). We are also members of the Burlington County Chamber of Commerce. It is important to get involved and have that personal relationship with members of your community. No matter what you are selling, it’s you that they buy into. I am not a faceless entity, I am Frank the owner, and that makes a huge difference.” In addition, Frank also participates in the Minuteman Press Internet Marketing Program. “It’s great to have that program in place to generate online leads as it’s another we to secure orders and then develop relationships with clients.” Support from Minuteman Press When it comes to being part of Minuteman Press, support comes in many ways. Frank says, “The support from Minuteman Press is always there when I need it, and this has always been the case. They have helped with employee training and staffing, provided great advice, and our Regional VP Rich Hornberger is a tremendous asset to us. Rich truly cares about the owners in his region, and I always appreciate his input.” Frank also appreciates the FLEX software as he has seen its evolution and enhancements over the years. “FLEX is so valuable and robust for pricing, marketing, and management. It’s great to see that some popular suggestions from owners are implemented. I love the integration with our vendors and the idea of getting deposits ahead of time is fantastic. Anything to make quotes easier and receiving payments easier is a huge benefit to our business.” During the first days and weeks of the pandemic, Frank credits the daily emails and communications he received from Minuteman Press World Headquarters and Nick Titus for reassuring him at a crucial time. “The emails we received from Nick were fantastic and I looked forward to them every day. They also helped us quickly pivot by implementing new marketing strategies and sell essential products. When everything first shut down, I couldn’t help but think about my family and my business. That lasted 3 days, and then we came back into the shop, the phones kept ringing, and we did not miss a beat.” He continues, “Without assistance from corporate, and without that morale boost at such a critical time, I don’t know if we would have been able to bounce back so quickly. It was also a huge asset to have the other franchise owners in our system to exchange ideas and share advice. All of that was extremely valuable.” “We were encouraged to keep plugging away, and that’s what we did. We printed masks using heat transfer. We printed new menus for restaurants, and we filled our community with graduation signs for the local schools we had relationships with. By remaining open, we helped one of our energy customers ramp up their mailings with EDDM and personalized mailings, and their sales have doubled since the pandemic. They are now one of our biggest clients.” -Frank Bittner, Jr. Rewards & Advice for Others As he reflects on 32 years, Frank shares, “Flexibility and quality of life are the two biggest rewards to being your own boss. I have been able to set my own schedule and be there for my kids. I’ve allowed my employees to have that same flexibility so we can all share that same mindset of caring about the business but being there for our families” When asked what advice he would give to others, Frank says, “I am a big believer in cross-training my employees. My advice is to have one or two key people who can do everything from front to back. Also, don’t expect to come in and not be present. You need to be present, and you need to be proactive.” Frank concludes, “Minuteman Press International is always moving forward. They fine-tune what is the next step and are on top of industry trends. Take advantage of their knowledge and experience and follow the system. That’s what we’ve done now for over 30 years and counting.” Minuteman Press in Cherry Hill is located at 2060 Springdale Rd., Suite 700, Cherry Hill, NJ 08003.

FAQ What is a personal statement? A personal statement is a short description of your background, interests, and goals. It is usually required as part of the application process for university, college, graduate school or postgraduate. The purpose of this essay is to give admissions officers an insight into who you are as a person and why you would make an excellent student at their school. This essay allows you to show off your personality through your writing style and provide concrete examples of how you will excel in your program. In addition to an academic transcript and test scores, your personal statement can make or break your chances of being accepted into a university or college program. While grades and test scores are important pieces of information that allow admissions officers to make informed decisions about whether or not they want to admit you, it's up to them whether or not they really want to spend time getting to know you better by reading your personal statement. By reading these essays, they get a glimpse into your personality and character as well as your interests outside of academics. These essays also allow them to identify students who have overcome significant challenges or obstacles during high school, which can be very impressive! What is a personal financial statement? A personal financial statement is a document that describes your financial situation. Your personal financial statement can be an important tool if you are applying for credit cards, loans, or insurance policies. You may need to provide a copy of your personal financial statement when applying for certain types of services or loans. Why is it required for colleges? A personal financial statement is used by government agencies and nonprofit organizations to determine eligibility for certain programs, including student loans and grants. By submitting a personal financial statement with your application, you can demonstrate your ability to pay tuition fees or other expenses associated with attending college. Some colleges also require applicants to supply parents' income information as part of their financial aid packages. In addition to being required by banks and other lenders, your personal financial statement can also be used by insurance companies and employers when deciding whether or not they want to hire someone or offer them employment benefits such as health care coverage and retirement plans. Depending on your income for the previous year, you may be eligible for additional grants that you might not otherwise know about. What is a personal mission statement? A personal mission statement is a short statement that describes who you are, what your values are, and what you want to accomplish in life. It’s a great tool for developing a sense of purpose and direction, especially during times of transition such as college applications. Your personal mission statement should be written in the first person and be concise. It’s also important to keep in mind that your personal mission statement should not be limited to academics or college admissions; it can be used throughout your life to guide decisions about jobs, relationships, and other major life events. A well-crafted personal mission statement can help you stand out from other applicants by giving the reader insight into who you are beyond grades, test scores, and activities. It allows them to see your passions, strengths, and weaknesses from your own point of view instead of an outside source like a teacher or counselor. The most effective statements are those that are honest, specific, and concrete so they can be read with ease by anyone who reads them (whether they be admissions officers or future employers). What is a law school personal statement? The personal statement as it applies to law school is your chance to let the admissions committee know who you are. You may write about any aspect of your background, including your professional experience, extracurricular activities, volunteer work, or any other information that you believe will help the committee decide whether or not they should admit you into their program. Many top-tier law schools receive thousands of applications each year, and cannot review every single one individually; instead, they rely on standardized tests like the LSAT and GPA as well as their application essays in order to determine which applicants are best suited for their programs. A strong application essay can be the deciding factor between admission and rejection because it gives an insight into who you are as a person rather than just an academic score or LSAT score alone could ever provide. What is a medical school personal statement? A medical school personal statement is an essay that describes your reasons for applying to medical school, your preparation for and commitment to this career path, your strengths as a future physician, and any other information that may be relevant to the admissions committee. Medical schools ask for this essay because they want to get to know the “real” you before making a decision about whether or not they want you in their program. In addition, because there are so many applicants for each spot at medical school (the average student applies to 8-10 programs), it helps them sort through all the applications quickly and easily. These essays are very helpful in assessing your personality and ability to communicate effectively. Since they only have one chance at getting into medical school (unlike undergraduates who can take multiple tests), it’s very important that students show themselves off in their best light with this essay. What is a personal vision statement? A personal vision statement is a 2-3 sentence statement that describes what you want to do with your life and how you're going to get there. It's a way to tell the admissions office what excites you and what you want to accomplish. Colleges are looking for students who have specific goals, who know what they want out of their education and beyond, and who have the drive and focus needed to achieve those goals. Your personal vision statement can help them identify those qualities in you. Your statement should be honest, but it doesn't need to be long or complicated. Think about what your top priorities are in life right now, and how college fits into those priorities. What do you want to pursue after graduation? What kind of impact do you hope to have on the world? How will attending this particular school help advance your goals? Your goal is not only to demonstrate your strengths as an applicant but also to show that you're someone who's thoughtful enough about his/her own life goals to articulate them clearly in writing). What is a residency personal statement? A residency personal statement is a written piece of writing that describes the reasons for pursuing residency. It is usually written by medical school applicants and can vary from one medical school to another. The residency personal statement is meant to show your enthusiasm for medicine and express why you are interested in becoming a doctor. Your residency personal statement should be honest about your motivations for applying for medical school, but it should also be specific enough to convey the unique aspects of your personality that will make you an excellent physician. Writing a residency personal statement can be difficult because there are so many ways to approach the task. The most effective way is to write down everything that comes to mind and then organize those ideas into a coherent narrative based on your own experience with medicine or healthcare. Is it legit to use a personal statement writing services? It is indeed a very common thing to do these days. A lot of students are opting for the help of professional writers to write their personal statements. The reason is obvious; they want a high-quality personal statement that can get them into their dream college. But there are a lot of people who think that this is plagiarism, which is against the rules. It is not however if you use the paper as research for writing the copy in your own words. Plagiarism is submitting someone else’s work as your own. These services do not intend for you to hand in these papers as your submission. They expect you to take inspiration from their writing and understand how it is to be formatted when writing your own. That is what makes them a legal business. The truth is that most college students have no idea how to write a personal statement, let alone the first thing about what to include in it. This is one of the reasons why many students struggle when it comes to writing their college essays. However, there are many personal statements writing services that you can use if you don't have any idea how to write your own personal statement. How to hire the best personal statement writer? When you are looking for a personal statement writer, you should look for someone who has a good understanding of the college application process. The personal statement is the most important part of your application, so it needs to be written by someone who can understand your situation and help you craft an effective essay. The first step in hiring a personal statement writer is to find out what kind of experience they have. You need to make sure that they have written college admissions essays before. If they haven't, then they probably won't be able to provide you with the help that you need, which means that it would be better to hire someone else instead. You should also look at their previous work when deciding whether or not someone is right for your needs. It's important that you ask for samples of their work before hiring them so that you can see what kind of quality they offer their customers. If their samples don't impress you, then it might be best if you continue looking elsewhere for help with your personal statement. Going with one of the top-rated writing services, like 99Papers, will ensure that you find a writer who meets your needs at the right price. They have done all the work for you. What is the best personal statement writing services in USA and UK? The most important thing in a personal statement is that it should be authentic and not exaggerated. You should be able to show your own personality in it without trying to sound like someone else. You must be able to convince the reader that your desire for higher education is genuine and sincere. The best personal statement writing/editing companies in USA and UK will give you an idea about how to write such kinds of essays effectively so that they impress the readers easily. They will help you write an inspiring statement that will convince them that you are really interested in pursuing higher studies at their institution of choice. When choosing the best personal writing services in the US or UK, you should opt for PaperHelp or EssayFactory. If you are a first-time student, they can help point you in the right direction and give you the help you need to get the placement you want. In the end... While some students may be deterred by the idea of paying for an online service to write their personal statement, it is essential to remember that this is one very important document that could make or break your application. The fact that you don't know how to begin properly shows fear, and fear never managed to get anyone into a great university. If you want nothing but the best for yourself and want a worry-free process, then hire a professional service to help you write your essays and personal statements. You’ll get 100% unique content written for you by industry experts that will inspire you to create a stunning application that is sure to get you into Harvard.
