Radio and Podcast Media Monitoring — Every Station Every State Every Podcast

Coast to Coast Radio Media Monitoring Every Station Every State

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — National Aircheck, a Chicago-based media monitoring service specializing in radio, launched an enhanced content tracking system today capable of cost-effectively searching tens of thousands radio stations and also podcasts. The proprietary system helps PR professionals capture mentions at a scale never available before.

Custom Station Groups Based on Format, Network, or Geography

In contrast to monitoring services that limit coverage to top stations in larger markets, National Aircheck’s new system can monitor virtually any radio station or groups of radio stations in North America along with thousands of podcasts, either on a one-off project basis or as an ongoing service. “Radio has always been an underserviced area of media monitoring,” said Robb Wexler, CEO at National Aircheck, “and since it’s our specialty, we wanted to improve the service options for different types of needs. Doing the exact same thing with podcasts is just a logical extension of our unique capabilities."
Each client can have their own custom list of monitored stations based on any criteria, such as format, affiliation, or geography. This allows users to supplement subscriptions to other platforms, or to access radio monitoring services on an occasional, as-needed basis.

Farm Stations Example

Recently, an agriculture brand wanting to verify coverage had National Aircheck put together a custom group of 70 farm stations across the Midwest and Central states. National Aircheck’s data allowed the agency to know in near real time if their products were mentioned. During a companion radio media tour it also allowed them to know which interviews did not air. As the agency noted, “even though stations were telling me all my interviews had aired, really only half had aired.”

The radio media tour tracking service, branded as RMTracker™, is an all-inclusive, flat-rate service.

New Branding

Along with launching the new system, National Aircheck has overhauled its branding and redesigned their website. The site showcases National Aircheck’s unique services, personality and gives visitors a way to book a 10-minute virtual presentation accompanied by free snacks. They take their snacks seriously.

Company Background

National Aircheck has been in business since 1988, specializing in radio but also offering TV monitoring services. CEO Wexler says the company is proud to say they are not a do-It-yourself service. “There is no platform to access or learn, teach and reteach. We do all the work.”

reSAWN TIMBER co.’s Abodo® Vulcan Cladding Compliant for Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Zones

reSAWN TIMBER co.'s Abodo Vulcan Exterior Cladding

reSAWN TIMBER co.’s Abodo Vulcan Exterior Cladding

reSAWN TIMBER co.’s Abodo Vulcan cladding passed the test for upcoming inclusion in the WUI Products Listing.

TELFORD, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — As more and more people live in and around forests, grasslands, shrub lands, and other natural areas—places referred to as wildland-urban interface, or WUI zones—problems related to wildfires are exacerbated.

For building products to be used in the (WUI) or State Responsibility Area (SRA), regulations require that building products comply with specific directives. In terms of fire resistance and ignition resistance the primary goal of the WUI code is to hold construction practices to higher standards in the built environment. When a home or structure is designed and built with attention to detail and careful consideration of complaint building materials, it increases the chances of a structure’s survival in a wildfire.

reSAWN TIMBER co.’s Abodo® Vulcan Cladding was recently tested on an exterior wall assembly in accordance with the California Standards Code, Chapter 12-7A, SFM 12-7A-1 (Siding Materials for Exterior Wall Siding and Sheathing). The test simulated wildfire conditions using full size 4′ x 8′ panels that were exposed to a flame of 150 Kw for ten minutes. After, the panels were then observed for 60 minutes to check for further flaming. In order to gather accurate results, the process was repeated three times.

Wall System: Exterior Wall Assembly
Combustible Components: 5/8 in. thick FlamePro Plywood sheathing, Wrapshield RS™ Rainscreen 3 mm, Tongue & Groove Abodo Vulcan Exterior Wood Cladding by reSAWN TIMBER co.

A SFM Standard 12-7A-1 pass is achieved if:
There is an absence of flame penetration through the wall assembly.
There is an absence of glowing combustion on the interior of the assembly after 70 minutes.
A test for siding in both a horizontal and vertical orientation is required to be sure of performance.

reSAWN TIMBER co.’s Abodo Vulcan cladding passed the test for both horizontal and vertical orientations for upcoming inclusion in the WUI Products Listing. The result? Abodo Vulcan cladding is now a compliant wildland urban interface building material.

The benefits of using real wood cladding with wall assemblies that meet the performance criteria set forth in SFM Standard 12-7A-1 are tremendous:

When compared to noncombustible building materials such as steel and masonry, using WUI compliant exterior wood cladding and wall assemblies offer a sustainable, environmentally friendly, carbon neutral solution.

Ignition resistant fire-retardant-treated wood is impregnated with chemicals, so the use of paints, coating, stains or other visually pleasing surface treatments are not an option.

From an architectural and design perspective, WUI compliant exterior wood cladding has many aesthetically pleasing options to suite any project, with a bevy of species and finish options to choose from.

Exterior timber cladding is a versatile, timeless building material that works well in traditional or contemporary architecture.

Not only is real wood recyclable and biodegradable, but it also has strength, toughness, and durability that rivals many other exterior facade options on the market today.

Abodo Vulcan thermally modified wood cladding is created from New Zealand plantation timber and engineered with a patented vertical grain orientation for superior weathering characteristics. A fine-sawn face provides beautiful grain depth and optimal coating performance.

Builders can rest-assured when choosing a wall assembly that combines reSAWN TIMBER co.’s Vulcan Cladding with fire-rated sheathing or gypsum board, the result is durable, CAL FIRE WUI compliant exterior siding that is impervious to hazardous weather conditions.

Since reSAWN’s Abodo Vulcan Cladding is pre-finished in modern, beautiful tones, architects and designers can confidently specify carbon negative, high performance, visually pleasing Vulcan exterior siding in wildland-urban interface zones. Clients are left with a stunning, natural, one-of-a-kind facade that can be easily maintained throughout the product lifecycle.

If you’d like to learn more about specifying reSAWN’s CalFire compliant Abodo Vulcan Cladding in Wildland Urban Interface zones, get in touch with reSAWN TIMBER co.

In keeping with the awards’ theme, 25% of all application fees will be donated to the Earth Innovation Institute, a non-profit organisation that works to advance climate-friendly rural development around the world.

“When people talk about technology changing the world, they usually mean delivering improvements to the way we do business,” said Ed Targett, co-founder of The Stack.
“But if 2020 taught us anything, it’s that humanity can achieve remarkable things when we come together to solve challenges that affect us all. That’s why we want to champion the people and organisations who are helping to make the world a better place through technology.

“From climate change to human rights, pollution to education, we want to hear from those who are making a real difference where it’s needed most; whether you are an NGO, entrepreneur, developer, or working on a project led by a technology multinational.”

The goal to plant 100,000 pine seedlings in the first year will be exceeded

Our Plant a Pine initiative has really resonated with the public. People can dedicate a tree to a loved one. It is a gift that will continue to grow and flourish for many years to come.”

— Don Philpott

TALLAHASSEE, FL, UNITED STATES, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Representatives of Bass Pro Shops and the Florida State Parks Foundation participated in a tree planting event at Gold Head Branch State Park on Thursday as part of their statewide Plant a Pine project.

The Foundation announced on Earth Day in April 2020, a goal of planting 100,000 longleaf pine trees by Earth Day 2021 (April 22). In October, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund’s generously contributed $50,000 to the project, enabling the planting of over 50,000 seedlings across ten different State Parks, said Foundation President-Elect Don Philpott.

“We are delighted that Gold Head Branch State Park is one of the first to benefit from this project,” he said.

Gold Head Branch State Park, in Keystone Heights, is one of Florida's oldest state parks, developed in the 1930s. It now covers 2,000 acres of rolling sandhills on the North Central Ridge of Florida with one of the few remaining examples of an old growth stand of longleaf pines. A steep head ravine with seepage springs forms Gold Head Branch and bisects the park while marshes, lakes, and scrub provide habitat for a wide variety of wildlife.

The pine seedlings are being planted in coordination with the Florida Park Service in park areas identified for restoration efforts. The longleaf pine is native to the Southeast and once flourished over a range of 90 million acres. Sadly, it is now endangered, covering less than 3 percent of its original range. It has long been prized for commercial use in building houses, ships, and railroads, and its resin used for making turpentine.

Mature longleaf ecosystems support more than 30 endangered and threatened species, including red-cockaded woodpeckers, gopher tortoises, and indigo snakes. Regular burning to restore natural rhythms enables longleaf pine to become rich, stable ecosystems. Longleaf pines are fire-adapted and dependent on burning, which stabilizes and enriches the soil.

“Our Plant a Pine initiative has really resonated with the public,” said Philpott. “People can even dedicate a tree to a loved one. It is a gift that will continue to grow and flourish for many years to come,” he said.

“The Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund is proud to partner with the Florida State Parks Foundation in restoring the endangered longleaf pine across our beautiful state. We all have a role to play in conserving Florida’s treasured natural resources and, by working together, look forward to seeing these pines grow and enrich our state parks. We send a special thanks to our customers who, by rounding up purchases in our stores, enabled the Outdoor Fund grant to support this project”, said Bass Pro’s Steve Washburn.

Groups interested in supporting hands-on tree planting projects can contact the Foundation through its website www.floridastateparksfoundation.org/trees.

The Foundation, founded in 1993 as Friends of Florida State Parks and renamed in 2018, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation whose mission is to support and help sustain the Florida Park Service, its 175 award-winning parks and trails, local Friends groups and more than 20,000 park volunteers.

It does this through programs that preserve and protect state parks, educate visitors about the value of state parks, encourage community engagement and active use of state parks, and advocacy.

The volunteer Board of Directors represents private and public sectors as well as local and statewide interests.

David A. Cruz, 20-year executive with British gunmaker Holland & Holland, joins Morphy Auctions as firearms specialist

Morphy Auctions’ newly appointed sporting firearms specialist David Cruz, a 20-year veteran of Holland & Holland, gunmakers to royalty and heads of state. Image provided by David Cruz

In his new role, Cruz will focus primarily on high-end and historically important sporting firearms

I place a high value on building relationships and making sure everyone involved in a transaction is happy.”

— David A. Cruz, Firearms Specialist, Morphy Auctions

DENVER, PA., UNITED STATES, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dan Morphy, founder and president of Morphy Auctions, has announced the appointment of David A. Cruz to the full-time position of firearms specialist. A 20-year executive with the US branch of Holland & Holland, Britain’s premier manufacturer of handmade sporting rifles and shotguns, Cruz brings a formidable knowledge of European guns and high level of client-service experience to Morphy’s firearms team.

“As he developed his hands-on expertise of custom-made sporting firearms at Holland & Holland, Dave also applied the people skills he had learned in the upscale retail clothing business. He knew the value of building relationships based on trust. His business style and attention to detail worked well with Holland & Holland’s clientele, and they’re going to work extremely well at Morphy’s,” Dan Morphy said.

Holland & Holland is a highly regarded gun manufacturer and clothing retailer that was founded in London 1835. They hold two prestigious Royal Warrants – one by appointment to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and the other by appointment to HRH The Prince of Wales. “It speaks volumes that Holland & Holland hired Dave as operations manager and that he thrived there for twenty years,” Morphy said.

A New York City native whose love of the outdoors began when he was just a boy, Cruz learned to fire a .22-caliber rifle while earning badges as a Cub and Boy Scout, and during camping trips with family and friends. “Those were some of my best boyhood memories, and it’s how I developed confidence with firearms. I wanted to be an outdoorsman and hunter. As I got older, my fascination for outdoor life only increased. I loved going fishing with my friends in Roscoe, New York, which is known as Trout Town USA.”

In his twenties, Cruz went to work in retail fashion representing premier designers that included Prada, Hilfiger, Armani, Zegna, and the company whose goods struck a special chord with him: Ralph Lauren. “I loved working there because, like their sportswear lines, the atmosphere there gave me a feeling of country life,” Cruz said. “I worked with the creative teams that produced the window displays and showrooms for the press. Some replicated Old West saloons or Western settings, which fit in with Ralph Lauren’s country lines. Many of Ralph Lauren’s clothing patterns were inspired by British gun firms that specialized in hunting and shooting, including Holland & Holland.”

That connection was what led to Cruz’s many visits to Holland & Holland’s famous Manhattan gun room, which was near Ralph Lauren’s headquarters. “I’d study the guns and how they operated. At the same time, I got to know many of the executives there and became friendly with them.”

Following his employment with Ralph Lauren, Cruz went to work for Holland & Holland and remained there until an economic downturn led to company-wide layoffs. He then accepted a position with the Swiss luxury goods company Bally, however that didn’t last for long. “One day I went up to Holland & Holland’s gunroom on my lunch break. The gunroom manager was still working there and took me into the boardroom, where five executives were meeting. He said, ‘Remember Dave? He’s our new US operations manager.’ That’s how quickly it happened, and that’s how a 20-year career with Holland & Holland started,” Cruz said.

Working for Holland & Holland was “the best training ground imaginable, not just for learning about Holland and Holland guns, but other British and European makes as well,” Cruz said. “If a customer came in and wanted to trade up to a Holland, they might bring in a Purdey or other brand. Together with their on-premises gunsmith, I was able to examine lots of different types of guns. To me, the best part of it all was being able to interact with people.”

When Holland & Holland relocated its US operations to Texas in 2017, Cruz was offered the opportunity to move with them. Reluctantly, Cruz declined because of family obligations. Instead, he and a colleague, Robert Pearson, accepted their severance and opened a retail gun shop in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.

Two years ago, Cruz met Dan Morphy at a convention in Dallas and was invited to do some freelance gun-cataloging work for Morphy Auctions. The association worked out very well, and in 2020 conversations ensued about the possibility of Cruz’s joining the Morphy organization full-time. It finally came to fruition on January 5.

As part of Morphy’s firearms team, Dave Cruz will represent the company at firearms shows, liaise with potential consignors, and create catalog descriptions for high-end sporting firearms.

“I’m happy and excited for the future, both for Morphy’s and myself. I think I can be an asset when it comes to evaluating sporting guns and helping out with clients. My past experience was geared toward the consumer, both on the selling or buying end. I like paying attention to customers’ needs and place a high value on building relationships and making sure everyone involved in a transaction is happy.”

To contact David Cruz about consigning to a future Morphy auction, call 877-968-8880 or email Dave.Cruz@MorphyAuctions.com. Visit Morphy’s online at www.morphyauctions.com.

Hadad: A reintroduction program to return falcons to their original habitats

RIYADH, RIYADH, المملكة العربية السعودية, January 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hadad: A reintroduction program to return falcons to their original habitats


Falconry is a cultural legacy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Saudis have always held falconry dear to their hearts. For them, it is more than a legacy; rather, it is a deep-rooted cultural heritage that is passed down from generation to generation, dating back to nearly nine thousand years. It is widely practiced across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by falconers who follow a strict code of rules that are the essence to the practice of falconry.

To highlight the importance of this crucial part of Saudi cultural heritage the Saudi Falcons Club (SFC) was founded in 2017 with His Highness, Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman being the General Supervisor and His Highness Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Naif bin Abdulaziz as the Chairman of the Board of Directors. The Saudi Leadership has also exerted great efforts to conserve and nurture this legacy and ensure its sustainability as a hobby and also protect the different species of falcons.

The SFC aims at preserving the rich heritage and traditions associated with falconry and promote awareness programs to conserve and protect falcons and ensure that falconry remains a living and flourishing hobby that is practiced by following generations.

In November 2020, the SFC launched the first phase of its program ‘Hadad’, which aims to reintroduce falcons to their original habitats, preserve falcon species and populations and also enhance the Kingdom’s leading role in achieving environmental sustainability and protecting the wildlife, as part of the Saudi vision 2030.

Being supported by His Highness, Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman himself, the program encourages owners of falcons to collaborate with SFC so that these falcons can be released back to their wild habitats in hopes of restoration to their populations. Before releasing the falcons to their natural habitats, the SFC runs a medical examination and a physical rehabilitation designed to assess the fitness of the falcons prior to release. The program also monitors their movements, survival and behaviors post-releasing to inform future reintroduction plans.

The program focuses on returning falcons to their natural habitats inside Saudi Arabia such as the Barbary Falcon and Lanner Falcon. In addition, migratory falcons that are in Saudi Arabia including the Saker Falcon and the Peregrine Falcon will be rehabilitated and released in Central Asia in coordination with international falcon associations.

Wisconsin Board Rejects Effort to Open Up 2021 Wolf Hunting Season

Wolves on the open range

Today, Animal Wellness Action issued a statement in response to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Board rejecting a reckless February trophy hunt.

Wolves have dodged a bullet today, but the battle to retain essential protections for wolves is far from over.”

— Scott Edwards

MADISON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Scott Edwards, general counsel of Animal Wellness Action, issued the following statement in response to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Board narrowly rejecting an unprecedented and reckless February trophy hunt and commercial trapping season for wolves. The effort was mounted by Republican state lawmakers in response to a November 3rd Trump Administration action removing wolves from the list of threatened and endangered species.

AWA and a raft of other organizations have promised to challenge the premature and unwarranted removal in federal court. AWA and other groups and citizens also filed objections with the Board prior to the hearing.

Below is the statement from Mr. Edwards:

“This maneuver by legislators to open a trophy hunting season in February is one more reason why the federal courts have been right to reject delisting of endangered wolves on multiple occasions. The state has been reckless in buckling to pressure and allowing the mass killing of wolves, often by particularly inhumane means. Wolves have dodged a bullet today, but the battle to retain essential protections for wolves is far from over.”

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Food Price Index Shows Uptick in Food Inflation

The FAO Food Price Index (FFPI) data recently released showed an uptick in inflation.

CALGARY, AB, CANADA, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The FAO Food Price Index (FFPI) data recently released showed an uptick in inflation. According to the FAO the “FFPI averaged 107.5 points in December 2020, up 2.3 points (2.2 percent) from November, marking the seventh month of consecutive increase. Except for sugar, all sub-indices of the FFPI registered modest gains in December, with the sub-index of vegetable oil again rising the most, followed by that of dairy, meat and cereals. For 2020 as a whole, the FFPI averaged a three-year high of 97.9 points…”. (1)

Veripath believes that “increases in food price inflation may in part be driven by the large increase in the global monetary base that has taken place since the onset of the pandemic and which appears set to continue unabated. Fiscal deficits in G7 countries have increased at unprecedented rates and have been largely funded through central bank bond buying programs – direct monetization in other words. It remains to be seen whether this uptick in food inflation is a temporary or the beginning of a change in baseline inflation rates on the back of highly expansionary monetary policy”.

Veripath operates as a pair of funds – Veripath Farmland LP, which is structured to own farmland in Saskatchewan and Manitoba only; and Veripath Farmland (UR) LP, which is structured to own farmland across the rest of the country. By having two separate vehicles, Veripath simplifies and streamlines compliance with the various provincial regulatory environments.

The funds also have open-ended, evergreen structures, rather than the traditional fixed term. With this approach, Veripath allows shorter- and longer-duration holdings to exist side-by-side, enabling investors, rather than management, to make the decision as to what holding period best fits their portfolio design requirements.

Who is Veripath: Veripath is a Canadian alternative investment firm. Members of Veripath’s management team have decades of farmland, private equity, and private credit investment experience and manage over 70,000 acres of Canadian row crop farmland. Veripath implements its farmland strategy in a way that seeks to preserve as far as possible farmland’s low-volatility return profile – the attribute that generates a material portion of Canadian farmland’s superior risk adjusted return profile. Veripath does this by seeking to minimize operational, weather, geographic and business-related risks – and capture the pure return from land appreciation. Canadian zero-til farmland portfolios may also be a useful addition to ESG driven mandates combining superior risk adjusted returns with environmental benefits.
