Clean Room Primer

For more information and to register for the upcoming events, click here. The Clean Room Primer Group has released its initial piece of educational material – a co-authored white paper covering clean room taxonomy and definitions, use cases, and a look at the future. Clean Room Primer - A Definitive Guide for Marketing is a guide for marketers, agencies, and publishers to formulate and evaluate their plans for using data clean rooms with the intention of enhancing their odds for success. The white paper is the topic at the group’s inaugural event, held today in New York City during Advertising Week. It can be downloaded here. Use cases and data management practices in the Clean Room Primer cover topics such as campaign measurement and attribution; audience insights, planning segmentation, activation and analysis; and monetization of first-party data. “Data clean rooms are an incredibly complex new addition to the tech stack, and one that is also central for all stakeholders in the marketing industry to understand. With factors like privacy regulations, measurement, attribution and third-party data usage evolving, those who are not well versed with how to use data clean rooms will quickly be left behind and will find it much harder to derive value from digital marketing efforts,” said Rich Sobel, Founder and CEO at Marcato Solutions and Founding Member of Clean Room Primer. “The goal of the Clean Room Primer is to provide marketers, agencies and publishers with data clean room knowledge and know-how to empower them to feel confident about implementing best practices to yield successful results.” The Clean Room Primer was authored by a group of industry leading experts invested in seeing the marketing industry transition to new privacy realities.

Ready for Ron Announces National Student Director

Ready for Ron

Ready for Ron, the only credible independent group working to Draft Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, announced a new initiative to engage college students, as activists and volunteers, in support of the official national petition to draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ‘Young Americans Ready for Ron’ led by Dylan Dean, will build a nationwide network of student activists to actively engage their fellow students and their local communities as part of the growing national movement in support of a Presidential run by Governor DeSantis. Dean, a student at Montana State University served as a multi-State Chair for the renowned student activist movement Young Americans for Liberty (running five states at once) and is a tireless advocate on and off college campuses. Dean’s experience in grassroots organizing and action has helped him build a national network of Young Americans ready to engage in electoral activism. “My generation is Ready for Ron to continue defending freedom and liberty - just as he has done in Florida – but on the national stage. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor DeSantis refused to kowtow to the radical Left, keeping the Sunshine State open for business and rejecting the impulse to impose onerous mask and vaccine mandates on citizens of the state. It revealed true bravery and respect for liberty, and that's why I support him now," Dylan Dean said. “By choosing guidelines over mandates, Governor DeSantis has given hope to college students like myself, who can now look to 2024 with newfound optimism that he will win the White House,” Dean continued. For those still in the college system or who just left it, we know what a broken system looks like and how important it is to solve the problems. Only strong leadership can get that job done.” “We are thrilled to have Dylan involved with this effort,” stated Ready for Ron Chief Political Strategist Ed Rollins. We need more younger people involved to grow a powerful apparatus nationwide to draft and elect Ron DeSantis for President. Their future and ours depend on it.” Since its launch in late May, Ready for Ron has enlisted nearly one hundred thousand supporters, generated significant media attention, and run hundreds of ads to convince Ron DeSantis to run for President. Ready for Ron has emerged as the only credible independent organization in support of a Ron DeSantis candidacy. Americans are encouraged to sign the petition at ReadyForRon.com to draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ### Contact Details Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 dan@readyforron.com Company Website https://www.readyforron.com/

Rembrandt’s Famous Masterpiece Available In 8,000 Pieces (NFTs)

Curzon PR

Now, everyone has the opportunity to own a digital piece of one of Rembrandt’s most celebrated works, The Night Watch (1642). The painting has been divided into 8,000 pieces, which are available in the form of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) — a digital certificate of ownership. Not only will the sale of NFTs be a milestone step in making Rembrandt ownership accessible for all, but owners will also be granted exclusive access to the new, and soon to be open, MetaRembrandt Museum — the only place in the world where all the paintings of Rembrandt van Rijn can be found remastered, digitally restored to their original state, and in high definition. The Night Watch NFT initiative is the result of a collaboration between the Rembrandt Heritage Foundation and blockchain innovators HODL Finance. It was announced on the first anniversary of the death of world-renowned Rembrandt expert, Professor Dr Ernst van de Wetering, who worked tirelessly to preserve Rembrandt's collection and make it accessible for current and future generations. Professor van de Wetering made his life’s work to trace, authenticate and preserve all of Rembrandt’s works. His legacy with The Rembrandt Heritage Foundation was to have Rembrandt’s full art collection digitised and remastered, ensuring it remains immortalised. He even recreated the pieces from The Night Watch that were cut off in 1715 and feared lost forever. Jess Muntenaar, COO at HODL Finance, said: “We are proud that together with The Rembrandt Heritage Foundation, we have digitally reconstructed and captured Rembrandt’s paintings in high definition, and made them accessible to everyone through blockchain ownership. Digitising art is not a replacement for the real thing, but rather a way to preserve art, make it available to everyone, and ensure that Rembrandt will always be there for future generations.” NFTs cannot be copied, replaced or subdivided, ensuring absolute security and authenticity. Every NFT is recorded in a database (a blockchain) and can be stored for as long as the owner wishes, or sold. An owner of one of the 8,000 pieces of the Night Watch automatically becomes a founder of the MetaRembrandt Museum. Founders have lifetime access to the museum, and can also ‘rent out’ their NFT, which not only provides a return on investment, but also gives other art lovers the opportunity to gain access to this highly exclusive digital venue. Pim Slager, co-founder of The Rembrandt Heritage Foundation, says: "The MetaRembrandt Museum is the only place where people can view all the paintings of Rembrandt together and in high definition. I feel honoured that we can now share the life's work of Rembrandt van Rijn with the whole world." For more information and to register to own a piece of The Night Watch, visit www.metarembrandt.com. About HODL Finance The Hodl Finance ecosystem is designed to continue to fuel innovative projects. By providing funding, community and expertise for a wide range of forward-thinking initiatives, Hodl Finance believes that our future should not be determined by Big Tech, but rather by creators and communities. Put the power where it belongs and let the community share in the benefits.

Halloween Thrills Can Be Good for Your Mental Health & Reduce Stress of Daily Living

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

During a time when many of us are anxious about daily living, the thrill of a Halloween fright might alleviate some stress, according to Dr. Michele Nealon, Psy. D., President of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. “There’s a psychological release from knowing that we can overcome our fear and enjoy the feeling of being exposed to crisis or threat in a safe environment,” she said. “This could be exactly the kind of release we need from our daily stresses—even if it’s just for a few moments.” “When you visit a haunted house or watch a horror movie, there’s a rush of adrenaline, endorphins and dopamine,” Dr. Nealon added. “This rush is translated by our brain into feelings of euphoria, satisfaction and empowerment when the fear subsides. We get a sense of relief and well-being.” Thrill seekers who test their own limits can also reinforce bonds with others when this experience is shared, according to Dr. Nealon. But there is a downside to Halloween that Dr. Nealon warns about. “When we mock the disadvantaged, the mentally ill, those with special needs, or anyone with a perceived difference, we contribute to stigma and discrimination which makes it even tougher for people living with adversity. This Halloween, and always, be mindful that there are those around you who are struggling—they need your support, your kindness, and not your taunts.” “Today, we have enough real fear and anxiety in our daily lives. Halloween frights can be an appropriate way to release some of the pent-up tension in our bodies so that we can better tackle the actual challenges we face,” she said. “At the same time, it’s a time to reflect on how we, as a society, need to focus on how to better serve those most in need of our support and kindness, understanding that this is an important step to community wellness for all of us,” Dr. Nealon said.

BOO! Home Repair Doesn't Have to be Scary!

YourUpdateTV

We love Halloween but what can really give a homeowner a fright is when your house starts making creepy sounds or smelling funny. Not everyone is a repair expert, so how do homeowners know when they need to call an expert? Recently, Mark Dawson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Authority Brands’ Trade Brands, conducted a satellite media tour to share tips that can help consumers make sure their house is in tip-top shape and safe for family and friends this spooky season and beyond. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/3DMbh3PDuno Like a regular health check-up, a home maintenance schedule is important for every house's upkeep. Continuing to check on your appliances, heating and cooling, plumbing, and electrical systems will help prevent breakdowns, save money, and keep your home looking its best. It is important to prepare your home for the colder season ahead, to be mindful of those creepy sounds and smells, and to identify and repair any home issues that could cause larger problems for your home and family in the future. No matter what age you are, flickering lights will make you feel uneasy. While most reasons behind flickering lights are nothing to be concerned about, others could mean there’s a bigger issue in the house’s electrical system that could be a safety hazard for you and your family. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, house fires will occur in over 1 million American homes each year, so it’s important to get to the root of the problem sooner rather than later. In fact, one of the main causes of house fires is loose wiring. And loose wiring can present itself as flickering lights. If that’s the case, you’ll need a complete diagnostic to assess the danger and what needs to be addressed. A Mister Sparky electrician will not only try to fix the immediate problem of the flickering light but will inspect the home thoroughly to ensure that there are no loose wires anywhere else in the home. For more info or to request an appointment with your local Mister Sparky visit mistersparky.com. If you hear pipes rattling, thuds when you turn off a faucet, or gurgling sounds in the drain, then your plumbing system might need to be checked. When your plumbing system is working properly, you don't have to think about it. Water comes in, water and waste get removed – that's the end of the story. Unfortunately, things don't always go so smoothly. Sometimes, the plumbing can break down – noisily. When in doubt, call in a qualified plumber to diagnose your noisy pipes and get your plumbing system flowing in peak condition again. Give your local Benjamin Franklin Plumbing a call for any plumbing questions or visit benjaminfranklinplumbing.com for more info. When it comes to your home’s cooling and heating system, the majority of the time you’ll forget it’s there, as new and modern HVAC units are pretty quiet. However, you might come across the occasional clicking or funky smell that might make you think twice about what’s going on with your system. If your air conditioner is making any of these noises - squealing/screeching, rattling, buzzing, clicking, hissing, whistling, humming, cracking, or banging - it is best to consult with a trained, certified HVAC technician to pinpoint the issue and offer you the best advice for fixing the sound. Be sure to call the experts at your local One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning whenever you need fast, reliable service or visit onehourheatandair.com.

New Zealand’s International Border Has Reopened: What’s New in New Zealand

YourUpdateTV

No matter the length of the stay, one thing is for certain: visitors to New Zealand will never run out of places to see. Following the country’s reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic, Tourism New Zealand has recently launched a brand-new campaign, “If You Seek,” inviting international visitors to unleash the seeker within. Recently, Sarah Handley, General Manager Americas and Europe at Tourism New Zealand, conducted a satellite media tour to discuss this campaign and share ideas to help curious travelers plan a trip of personal discovery and long-term growth. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/ujl2MnugTms “If You Seek,” the country’s first global campaign post-pandemic, is designed to warmly welcome all visitors who are willing to embrace New Zealand’s distinctive values of manaakitanga (a deep expression of hospitality and reciprocal understanding/connection) and kaitiakitanga (guardianship and care for the environment), positioning the destination as a place to nourish and transform. With two main islands, 13 national parks, and dozens of diverse cities, there are plenty of New Zealand attractions and activities to choose from. Explore golden coastlines fringed with native pōhutukawa trees, follow walking trails to waterfalls hidden in beech forests, or cycle through gently rolling vineyards. For those after New Zealand's famous adventure activities and extreme sports, seekers can choose from bungy jumping, jet boating, skydiving, or zip-lining. Or relax and take it easy at beautiful hot pools, cultural attractions, and art galleries. Travelers can book a flight to New Zealand online or via local travel agents to enjoy stunning landscapes and meet friendly locals. From the west coast, it’s easier and quicker to fly to New Zealand than it is to go to some popular destinations in Europe. If visiting from the East Coast, fly through Chicago or New York, as the flight is worth the journey. Tourism New Zealand’s airline partners Air New Zealand, American Airlines, United Airlines, and Hawaiian Airlines offer direct flights to New Zealand from seven U.S. cities - Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, New York, and Honolulu. Most international flights arrive into Auckland Airport, located in the northern part of the North Island. Christchurch, Wellington, Rotorua, Queenstown, and Dunedin airports also receive a small number of international flights. Find out more about New Zealand airports. For help booking New Zealand flights, contact 100% Pure New Zealand Specialists – these are locally-based travel agents around the world who have completed special training with Tourism New Zealand to increase their knowledge of the country. They understand the best ways to get around and can recommend accommodation, activities, and tours to help make New Zealand holidays unforgettable.

Claravine Expands Digital Ad Integration Library With Top Platforms

Claravine

Claravine, a pioneer in data integrity with its platform, The Data Standards Cloud®, has launched integrations with Google Ads, Snapchat Ads and Pinterest Ads Manager. These recent platform integrations help Claravine users improve naming compliance, metadata capture and enrichment while maintaining connection points between key datasets – allowing them to hand-off across workflows and quickly measure which campaigns are performing best. There is an industry-wide demand for innovative solutions when it comes to marketing measurement, personalization and collaboration. To meet this need, Claravine is expanding its ad integration library to be compatible with more major platforms powering digital advertising, including measurement solutions, creative optimization and content metadata. Claravine has existing ad integrations with Google Campaign Manager 360 and Facebook Ads Manager along with integrations into other key marketing technologies. “While clean, consistent marketing data are core to faster business decisions, ad platforms limit the ability to control or customize fields. The lack of control and alignment across these platform limits brands and agencies from creating unified measurement dashboards.” Chris Comstock, Chief Product Officer at Claravine said. “By expanding our capabilities, we’re able to ensure that there is uniformity and adherence to the taxonomy and rules our clients have put in place. We are also able to enrich the marketing data with the business attributes needed for measurement and insights while creating alignment across marketing and analytics teams.” To further promote awareness and education around data standardization, Claravine is among a group of companies involved with the Clean Data Primer and RoadShow – a new industry organization focused on developing common standards around data clean rooms. The primer’s content covers taxonomy use cases and shares with Claravine the mission of positioning marketers, agencies, and platforms to formulate and evaluate clean room strategies and thereby enhance their odds of success. “We’re excited to have Claravine’s support of our initiative,” Rich Sobel, Co-creator of Clean Data Primer and data and AdTech industry expert said. “With a shared industry focus and their Data Standards Cloud software, we’ll be able to shed light on the importance of clean data, ultimately helping brands better prepare for the new data landscape.” Claravine was recently nominated as a finalist in the Best Data Technology category in AdExchanger’s 2022 Awards. This achievement is in addition to Claravine’s landmark year with milestones including an additional $16 million in Series B funding and being named a 2022 AdExchanger Programmatic Power Player as well as a “Momentum Leader” and “High Performer” in the Fall 2022 G2 Rankings. Claravine will be on stage at this year’s Advertising Week, taking place in New York City the week of October 17, with content and media experts at Aprimo and GroupM. Claravine has forged successful partnerships with well-known Fortune 1000 companies such as Under Armour and Ancestry and is currently working with a quarter of the Fortune 100. With a collaborative user interface and strategic integrations with top customer experience platforms such as Adobe and Google, Claravine's platform, The Data Standards Cloud, helps global organizations define, apply and connect standards across their ecosystem for faster decisions, greater agility and increased ROI. About Claravine Claravine is a pioneer in data integrity for the global enterprise.

38-Year Printing Veterans Larry and Tami Jacobs Grow Sales After Buying New Minuteman Press Franchise in Carson City, NV

Minuteman Press International Inc

For Minuteman Press franchise owners Larry and Tami Jacobs, the printing industry is not new. “Our background prior to franchising with Minuteman Press was … wait for it … printing and graphics. Tami has been in the industry her whole life with parents who also spent their entire careers in the industry. Larry jumped in to printing shortly after marrying Tami in 1985. Together, we started our first business in 1987 and we’ve been at it ever since. While the majority of franchisees are coming from a different background altogether, we decided to go with the tried and true. Rather than starting over from scratch we sold our prior printing business and home in another state, moved to Carson City, and opted to partner with Minuteman Press for the brand recognition and the support that comes from within.” That partnership of Larry and Tami’s experience with the Minuteman Press franchise system has created a win-win scenario and generated significant sales growth for Minuteman Press in Carson City, Nevada, a brand new location at 444 East William Street, Unit #1, that Larry and Tami opened in July 2021. Larry and Tami explain, “Having been in the industry for nearly 38 years, we were blown away by the training and support we have received from Minuteman Press. In some aspects it was a refresher but in other areas it was completely new to us. We had not previously done a lot of promotional products, and dye sublimation and using a heat press were new to us. We have embraced the new products and are actively marketing those items.” “We’ve been learning new equipment with the signage, apparel, and all of the details involved with EDDM and direct mail marketing. It has been fun. We would not be where we are without the training and support provided by Minuteman Press.” -Larry & Tami Jacobs, Owners, Minuteman Press, Carson City, NV Standing Out in Carson City According to Larry and Tami, “Carson City is a family-friendly, small-business oriented town that is welcoming and still has a small town feel to it. We have enjoyed getting to know other business people in our community and find that they are all very supportive of each other, our town and community.” They continue, “When meeting with clients, this is what we tell them. We can help grow your business by providing personalized and branded business cards, flyers, posters, stationery, banners, apparel, and much more—we are your one-stop-shop for all your printing and promotional requirements. Plus, we specialize in direct mail marketing and advertising. Anything you can put a name, logo, or image on—Minuteman Press in Carson City can produce. We design, print, and promote YOU!” Larry and Tami add, “Our experience in the industry coupled with the latest in technology and production sets us apart. We are able to produce high quality, top of the line products in a lightning speed turnaround time in-house. As several in our community have told us, ‘There’s no one like you in the area.’ We promise. We deliver.” Growing the Business In order to grow the business, Larry and Tami use a combination of marketing strategies. “We have used in person, direct mail and email marketing campaigns as well as networking. We also have a strong presence on Google and solid word of mouth with both current clients and former clients from our previous business. These all add up to great online and offline referrals.” Minuteman Press in Carson City also has a healthy mix of products and services to get the job done for clients in their community. “Currently, our most high-demand products are political yard signs and walk cards, direct mail (both printing and mailing – all done in-house), large format printing, and apparel. We have aligned with several political brokers and that bring us a large variety of work in all aspects of our business – printing, direct mail, promotional products, and apparel. We have had quite a bit of growth with apparel in general. When word gets out that you can get it done and done well, the business finds you.” They offer this tip for local businesses. “Direct mailing to get your name out there is one of the best ways to reach potential clients to let them know you are there and open for business. With so many businesses shut down by the pandemic for so long, it is important to let your community know that you are still there and ready to serve them. Anything branded is very effective as well.” “As much as we are all glued to screens these days, there’s still just something about seeing your name and logo in print. Remember how you felt the first time you held your very own printed business card? That’s what I mean. There are some things that just work better as a printed piece as opposed to something online. Print is still the best media to communicate who you are and to get your message out to the world.” -Larry & Tami Jacobs Rewards & Advice for Others For Larry and Tami, the care they have for their clients is clearly evident when they are asked about the rewards of owning their business. “The rewards in this industry are seeing your clients shine because we took their pieces and made them into something presentable. I’ve gone to events where we printed all of the campaign materials, signs, apparel, and more. When you see everything come together in brand and theme, it really makes the client stand out and look good. And at the end of the day, that feels good and right.” They continue, “We have helped so many clients to get their projects turned around and completed on impossible deadlines. It’s an awesome feeling to make things happen. Whether it’s a small ‘copies of Great Grandma’s cookbook’ project or a large corporate multi-piece project, we give our best to help our clients look their best.” As for what advice the 38-year printing industry veterans would give to others, Larry and Tami share, “Follow the protocol, do the steps that need to be done. Stick with it. It works.” For more information on Minuteman Press in Carson City, NV, visit their website: https://minuteman.com/us/locations/nv/carson-city/ Learn more about #1 rated Minuteman Press franchise opportunities and see Minuteman Press franchise reviews at https://minutemanpressfranchise.com Contact Details Chris Biscuiti +1 631-249-1370 cbiscuiti@mpihq.com Company Website https://minutemanpressfranchise.com
