Liberties Journal Foundation Debuts to Advance Independent Thinking at the Intersection of Culture and Politics

Liberties Journal

To advance independent thinking and propel new ideas, well-known figures from the worlds of arts, business, government, higher education and philanthropy today announced the formation of the Liberties Journal Foundation. Based in Washington, D.C., the Foundation is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization that seeks to inform today’s cultural and political leaders, deepen the understanding of citizens, and inspire the next generation to participate in the democratic process and public service. The Foundation’s first initiative is a new quarterly journal, Liberties - A Journal of Culture and Politics, slated for October 2020 debut. Founding members of the Foundation include the well-known Washington attorney, philanthropist, and former diplomat, Alfred H. Moses; chairman and CEO of cross-border trade company Quberu, Peter Bass; and, respected arts, education, and business leader, Bill Reichblum. Each issue of Liberties, the Foundation’s decidedly analog quarterly publication, will feature a combination of essays from prominent writers and introduce new talent. Contributors already signed include leading voices from this country and abroad in the worlds of culture, business, entertainment, government, politics, and technology. Each edition of Liberties will also publish new poetry from both highly awarded and up-and-coming poets. A book for the coat pocket, Liberties’ diverse voices celebrate one commonality: freedom of inquiry and thought. Liberties’ editorial team reflects the mission of the Journal pairing acclaimed literary critic Leon Wieseltier as editor with Celeste Marcus, a new talent, as managing editor. Bill Reichblum is the publisher. The book will be available as a soft-cover edition, by subscription or single copy, in bookstores and online. “The Foundation exists to meet the thirst in our country for ideas and serious thinking at a time when the daily news dominates the media and overwhelms our lives,” says Moses. “The Foundation will provide an outlet for world-renowned writers on culture and politics to reach a readership that is looking for stimulation and inspiration at a time when our lives are increasingly assailed by ephemeral trivia.” “We believe there is a genuine need to take time to listen, to actively absorb in-depth thinking of both those with accomplished experience and the inventive new generation at the beginning of their careers,” says Reichblum. “Their creativity, insights, and perceptions can individually and collectively inspire culture and impact politics.” Founded in 2020 and based in Washington, D.C., Liberties Journal Foundation is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization devoted to educating the general public about the history, current trends, and possibilities of culture and politics. Through the publication of its quarterly, in-print only journal, and its supporting initiatives, the Foundation seeks to inform today’s cultural and political leaders, deepen the understanding of citizens, and inspire the next generation to participate in the democratic process and public service.

Houck’s Grille Uses Video Webinar Technology to Enhance Restaurant Events

Convey Services

Houck’s Grille launched a unique new service to include distant friends and relatives in local parties and celebrations in its event facilities, when they can’t be there in person by adding Zoom Video Conferencing and streaming services to the event package. The new capability allows people from anywhere in the world to join in as guests when a physical celebration, corporate meeting or other sponsored event is taking place at Houck’s. While guests are socializing, having their lunch or dinner gathering or enjoying the presentation or music in the restaurant, friends can join online and see and talk directly with the hosts or attendees. "Prior to COVID-19, Houck’s hosted dozens of events in an average month, including rehearsal dinners, birthdays, bridal showers, anniversaries and corporate meetings,” said Molly Breiding, Event Manager at Houck’s Grille. “Just like other restaurants and event facilities when COVID hit, those gatherings disappeared. With our new Zoom Video Conferencing capability, events can resume and guests who are unable to travel or uncomfortable with large groups, can now talk to guests and not miss a moment of the celebration.” Each Houck’s Zoom event includes a dedicated “Zoom Jockey” to manage the technology, direct the video, help online viewers participate, as well as include restaurant attendees in the event. Houck’s is connected with video, microphones and an 8-foot projection screen to maximize the experience for its in-person and remote guests. Virtual local guests can even receive meals and drinks from Houck’s using Curbside Pickup, UberEats or DoorDash. “In-person events are beginning to return, as people are now booking their fall and holiday parties and celebrations,” added Breiding. “But there is going to be a segment of our community that will still feel uncomfortable in group settings despite the efforts Houck’s engages in to reduce the risk. The addition of video streaming allows people to join in, even if it is from the comfort of their home.” About Houck’s Grille Houck’s Grille is an American fare family restaurant located in the heart of Roswell, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb, off Highway 92 at Crabapple Road. Founded by legendary local restauranteur, Bill Houck, Houck’s Grille first opened at this location in 2015. Known for a diverse menu ranging from exceptional burgers, unique and tasty salads, steaks and fish, people claim their fried shrimp is the best you can find this side of the Gulf Coast. With a chef-driven kitchen, Houck's Grille is committed to excellent food and drinks, LIVE music Friday & Saturday nights featuring classic local artists, and a large event facility for hosting parties, bridal events, rehearsal dinners and sports banquets.

Cloud Conventions Prepares for Hybrid Tradeshows & Events to Flourish in 2021

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full featured virtual tradeshow, conference and event technology solution is now offering hybrid event capability to blend an enhanced virtual and digital experience with live events as they begin to return in 2021. Hybrid events expand the audience at tradeshows and conferences, extend the time attendees can engage with exhibitors and sponsors and provide a storehouse for content, session recordings and education on-demand. Cloud Conventions is upgrading its technology to offer integration with services like Experient and Cvent that manage both live and virtual attendee registration. “Prior to COVID, the global marketplace for live expositions exceeded 33,000 events, producing $50 billion in revenue,” said Carolyn Bradfield founder of Convey . “The pandemic forced the cancellation of tens of thousands of events in 2020, but as they return in 2021, the strategy to connect attendees to exhibitors, training and content will evolve with the addition of a virtual component. It will increase the options for audiences to participate and engage and support attendees who either don’t want to travel or are concerned about risk.” Cloud Conventions automates every aspect of delivering a virtual tradeshow, conference or event from attendee onboarding to virtual exhibit booths. It creates a content-rich environment with enhanced views of marketing materials, educational classes, and product literature that live events can’t deliver. The platform analyzes all attendee interactions and presents them in detailed reports for the event host and exhibitors. Cloud Conventions supports any brand of conferencing solution, including Zoom Video Webinar, PGi GlobalMeet, GoToWebinar, Vonage Meetings or Microsoft Teams to execute keynotes or educational sessions. “The marketplace for live events will never be the same after COVID-19, but we think it’s going to evolve, grow and become more versatile,” added Bradfield. “Conferences and tradeshows are vital to the worldwide economy because they connect suppliers to buyers that keep their shelves, warehouses and online stores stocked with the latest merchandise. They offer professionals a forum for education, licensing renewal and connections. Hybrid events ensure that those activities will continue uninterrupted no matter what 2021 holds.” Hybrid events offer a coordinated way for attendees to register for both a live or virtual environment, as well as for exhibitors to have a physical and a virtual booth, and for content and education to be consumed in person or on-demand. Cloud Conventions is a virtual event SaaS platform from Convey Services . For ideas on how the industry is using Cloud Conventions to make their virtual events informative and engaging, visit the Online Resource Center at www.CloudConventions.com .

Cloud Conventions Supports ADA Requirements for Virtual Event Accessibility

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full featured virtual tradeshow and event technology solution supports ADA requirements for accessibility to help event operators accommodate people with disabilities and avoid increasing legal action being taken against failure to provide attendees easy access to content and programming. As most tradeshows, conferences and association events transition from live to virtual in response to COVID-19, accessibility is often overlooked when making the switch. Event planners who normally take steps to ensure their in-person events accommodate people with any level of handicap, are often unaware that virtual events must meet the same requirements. “Providing ADA accessibility is usually not top of mind, but it is an important component in your overall virtual event strategy not only to accommodate attendees with visual or hearing disabilities, but also to protect your organization from legal action being directed at non-compliant events,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey . “Today, Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is being interpreted to include websites and even virtual events as ‘places of public accommodation.’ Events that operate using online platforms that fail to provide accessibility can be viewed as discriminating against persons with disabilities. In 2020, plaintiffs’ lawyers along with certain states like California and New York are filing a significant number of ADA lawsuits for discrimination.” Cloud Conventions took steps in 2019 to ensure that virtual events on the platform could be ADA compliant. For a virtual event operator this means that Cloud Conventions’ technology supports ADA, enabling the event operator to ensure attendees have unrestricted access to the platform and the event content hosted on it. Visually impaired attendees can use web readers and view images that have “Alt” text to be read aloud on a screen reader. In addition, higher levels of color contrast on buttons or other graphics elements guides individuals through the site. “The phrase most often seen in lawsuits is ‘effective communication,’ in other words, does a virtual event provide effective communication for any and all persons who attend,” added Bradfield. “ADA is a strict liability law which means excuses or defenses for violations, like ignorance of the law or third-party responsibility, do not relieve accountability. Cloud Conventions makes complying with ADA requirements easier, but ultimately virtual tradeshow operators and event planners need to educate themselves on effectively applying Cloud Conventions’ underlying resources to their individual show.” For more ideas on how to make a virtual event both informative and engaging, visit the Online Resource Center at www.CloudConventions.com .

InterAct LifeLine Addresses Alarming Increase in Overdoses During COVID-19 Pandemic

Convey Services

InterAct LifeLine , a telehealth platform delivering education and content on addiction and wellness, has moved from a beta program to full release offering addiction treatment programs as well as state and local community groups the ability to use technology for remote patient monitoring and keeping individuals connected virtually after they have completed an addiction rehab program. InterAct LifeLine offers structure and accountability, virtual connections to support groups and treatment professionals, along with education about how to maintain recovery and individual monitoring when needed. InterAct is a sister company of Convey Services . “Every day, news reports are hyper focused on COVID-19, but they fail to see the devastation experienced by those struggling with addiction and mental health issues during the pandemic,” said Carolyn Bradfield CEO of InterAct LifeLine. “Addiction is a chronic disease requiring individuals to stay connected to longer term treatment, to implement healthy lifestyle changes, and to create a support system to help them stay in recovery. The pandemic has disrupted the ability for people with addiction to stay connected. This makes InterAct LifeLine’s capabilities all the more essential.” In a July 1, 2020 article, the Washington Post reports that drug overdoses are soaring during the pandemic.According to the article, “Suspected overdoses nationally jumped 18% in March, 29 % in April and 42 % in May, data from ambulance teams, hospitals and police shows.” According to research conducted by the Post, individuals who are suffering from the disease of addiction have felt an increasing sense of isolation, suffer from the disruption in the economy, are disconnected from treatment , accelerating the on-going pandemic of drug addiction and overdose. “I lost my first husband to suicide after a decades long battle with alcoholism and my daughter Laura to overdose a month before her thirtieth birthday,” added Bradfield. “The country cannot afford to ignore the addiction pandemic that takes more American lives annually than both the two Gulf wars and Vietnam War combined. The effects of addiction devastate families. InterAct has had a successful beta program this year and now we’re ready to expand our offering nationwide.” InterAct Lifeline operates on Convey’s portal network using its proprietary Hub & Spoke™ technology to deliver education and content to customized portals used by addiction treatment programs, as well as state and local community groups. The technology offers personalized calendars with reminders for individuals to attend support meetings, therapy appointments, or work commitments. Outbound messaging and short surveys help case workers monitor patient progress and alert staff if there are issues. The program offers additional telehealth connections to therapists and psychiatrists for medication management, as well as providing families with a support and family therapy program. About InterAct LifeLine Founded in 2019 by Carolyn Bradfield following the overdose death of her daughter, InterAct is a telehealth platform delivering education and content on addiction and wellness strategies to promote recovery, connections to community through discussion forums and virtual support groups, and continuous outreach to its members. InterAct’s portal technology is integrated with a HIPAA compliant mobile platform offering applications to families to engage individuals, organize their schedule with reminders and check ins, send secure messages and monitors vital signs through wearables to detect risk for overdose. InterAct’s technology produces detailed data used for treatment program outcomes studies. For information visit www.interactlifeline.com , info@interactlifeline.com or call 866-274-7539.

Cloud Conventions Virtual Events Sets New Standards for Content Delivery

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full-featured virtual tradeshow and event technology solution is establishing itself as the new standard for delivering content, audio and video presentations, PDFs, PowerPoint files, blogs, brochures, flip catalogs and live events to virtual audiences around the world. Cloud Conventions has a long history of content delivery to industry networks connecting indirect sellers in channel organizations to suppliers and vendors. At the core of Cloud Conventions is a sophisticated SaaS delivery engine that manages and graphically showcases content to create a powerful digital experience. “Many virtual event solutions being marketed today started life as webinar registration or webinar delivery platforms, but fall way short in presenting content effectively,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey Services . “Some just offer links to downloadable PDFs when you click a generic icon. Specialized features within Cloud Conventions allow attendees to view or download content from an exhibitor or sponsor, share it on social media or email it to customers or colleagues. Our exclusive One-Touch Email Share ™ simplifies the distribution of product or educational material, as well as training and promotions. This ensures the exhibitor achieves a better ROI, increasing leads and ultimately sales.” One-Touch Email Share automatically launches the attendee’s email client, such as Outlook or Gmail. The attendee selects one or more recipient email addresses and includes their own message. The email contains a custom generated URL that directs the recipient to a unique landing page that displays only that item’s information, video, catalog or other type of content so it can be viewed or downloaded. Attendees can also bookmark content and return to it from their personal dashboard. “A virtual tradeshow or conference has to offer a content-rich experience to all attendees to keep them engaged,” added Bradfield. “Product companies need to showcase new merchandise and catalogs, associations have to deliver continuing education, technology businesses have video demos of their services that will sell their solutions. Cloud Conventions automates content delivery and offers a means for exhibitors, as well as attendees to consume content online and on-demand.” Every feature of content sharing is managed by the exhibitor inside their virtual booth. Access to content can be restricted to viewing online only or allowed to be shared or downloaded. Detailed reporting tracks viewings, including who saw it, for how long and if they downloaded or shared it. Cloud Conventions provides a personalized content experience with customized attendee dashboards, segmented email communication or the ability to restrict access to exhibit booths based on attendee type.

Cloud Conventions Virtual Events Can be More Effective at Connecting Buyers & Sellers

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full-featured virtual tradeshow and event technology solution delivers an effective means for suppliers to continue to move merchandise by providing better connection to buyers in a content rich virtual environment. Annual or regional tradeshows and industry conferences have traditionally been the primary way suppliers connect to their wholesale marketplace, educating buyers on new products, introducing the latest trends and receiving orders for merchandise for upcoming selling seasons. In a digital environment, Cloud Conventions is improving the overall sales process by better showcasing suppliers and their products, providing increased promotional opportunities and stronger connections with buyers, brokers and distributers in thousands of vertical markets in the U.S. and internationally. “People often perceive that tradeshows are just a getaway to visit a fun venue, connect socially and have a good time,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey Services . “In some ways that can be true, however tradeshows are mission-critical in connecting buyers with suppliers and resellers in a single venue so they can keep their shelves, warehouses and online stores stocked with the latest merchandise. To keep product moving so suppliers can survive and grow in the face of COVID-19, Cloud Conventions offers a more enhanced digital experience delivering higher levels of product information, more interaction and a longer opportunity to connect.” A Cloud Conventions virtual tradeshow gives exhibitors a booth experience filled with opportunities to capture sales leads, attract and reward attendees, interact with live chat or video meetings and offer live or recorded in-booth sessions to showcase their products. Buyers can view new product lines, flip through digital catalogs, meet with designers, fill out requests for pricing, order product samples and receive show promotions and discounts. “Virtual tradeshows can offer significant advantages over live events,” added Bradfield. “The virtual exhibit hall is not restricted to specific hours, allowing attendees to view a booth online and on-demand 24/7. The attendee audience is often much larger because they can attend without the risk and expense of travel or taking time away from the business of selling. This can dramatically increase the number of sales leads from an event. In one of our recent tradeshows, there were 100 virtual booths. During the 3 days of the live show there were over 40,000 attendee interactions with exhibits and sales content. With a virtual event, those interactions can continue for days, weeks or a month or more afterward.” Cloud Conventions virtual booths offer varying levels of features with specialized sponsorship and advertising placements. Exhibitors can purchase banner ads on the homepage, inside the attendee dashboard and on directory pages. Sponsors can showcase themselves with session presentations, host social events like virtual wine tastings and be featured in email communication sent from the event platform. Analytics on Cloud Conventions detail every attendee interaction to validates the ROI for the exhibitor or sponsor. Cloud Conventions is a virtual event SaaS solution from Convey Services .

Ergo21 Announces Drive in Comfort Seat Cushion Combo for Long Drives

Ergo21

Ergo21 today announced its new custom-made seat cushion combo and is now available and ready to ship. The seat uses LiquiCell technology to reduce hot spots and improve blood flow. "If you want to drive or sit forever without the butt burn, the Ergo21 Seat Cushion and Lumbar Combo is the perfect choice for anyone who drives or sits long hours or for a living. The secret ingredient is the LiquiCell Membrane on top of an open cell foam and covered by a soft fabric." explains Steve Gambhir, designer, and product specialist at Ergo21. Positive Customer Impact Ergo21 tested many cushions and lumbar support cushions and found most people were not happy with their seats. "We researched and evaluated the most popular brands and discovered they used molded foam, which is approximately 30% cheaper to manufacture since it simply requires some sewing. The trade-off is that it's closed-pore foam and it feels hard when you ride," said Gambhir. LiquiCell Blood Flow Technology Ergo21 sourced a custom density open cell foam from a local USA foundry designed to absorb road vibrations while not feeling hard on sitting bones. Custom made LiquiCell Membrane is then placed on top to protect sensitive skin tissues from breaking down while optimizing blood flow. "The biggest challenge we had since the foam was not molded is that it needed special manual stitching. After several months of trying different stitching methods, we finally were able to come out with what we consider the Best Seat Cushion out there! Better than a Gel seat cushion or Foam seat cushion" said Gambhir. The Cushion Combo consists of Ergo21 Original Seat Cushion with FREE Ergo21 Travel cushion to sit on and Ergo21 Lumbar Cushion with FREE Lumbar Roll for supporting the spine. Explains Steve Gambhir – All the cushions have the same LiquiCell Blood Flow Technology membranes. The Ergo21 Original Cushion is 2 inches thick and works well in cars that do not have good cushioning while the Ergo21 Travel is only one inch thick and works in cars that have good cushioning and is great for taller individuals as it does not add much height. We also have the Ergo21 Travel Lite which has just the 4 LiquiCell membranes with no foam that works best on luxury cars that have cushy seats but one still feels the pressure on drives longer than 10 minutes. Founded in 2010, Ergo21 offers wide range of Seat Cushions designed for office, driving, home, wheelchairs, bicycles and travel. ### Ergo21 and LiquiCell are registered trademarks in the United States of the respective owners.
