Shane Kistel Explains How the Smart Features of Traeger Grills Revolutionize Outdoor Cooking

Shane Kistel

DAVIDSON, NORTH CAROLINA, USA, June 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nature enthusiast Shane Kistel has spent his life immersed in outdoor activities such as backpacking, mountain climbing, hiking, and kayaking. An avid griller, he shares with readers how the tech advances from Traeger grills change outdoor cooking for all seasons.

While Shane Kistel is a professional Pharmaceutical and Medical Sales Representative, in his spare time he’s a nature enthusiast with a passion for grilling and other outdoor activities. Below, he shares how Traeger grills are revolutionizing outdoor cooking with unique brand features and major tech advances.

Most of the grills available on the market are gas-based which provide their own unique flavor that meets most grilling needs. However, Traeger grills go the extra mile by pioneering the first wood pellet grill and range of smoky flavors available to consumers. Their grills gained immediate recognition for their ease of use and the rich flavor the wood pellets imparted on food. Their versatile features allowed outdoor grillers the ability to roast, bake, grill, smoke, and braise their food on one convenient appliance.

“The multi-tools Traeger produce give cooks the freedom of a full-range kitchen wherever they set their grills,” says Shane Kistel. “And the technology they’re introducing into their products is innovative.”

This year, Traeger made a new line of game-changing grills available to the public in the Timberline Series, Ironwood Series, and Pro Series. Each of the models produced in 2019 feature WiFIRE® and D2 Direct Drive technology, which bring the old-world charm of grills into the 21st century through the Internet of Things (IoT).

Both features are standout components of the modern grill and expand the capabilities of Traeger’s already versatile products. D2 Direct Drive technology provides users with greater control over temperature settings and a larger scale of temperatures to choose from. WiFIRE allows users to remotely control their grills––an excellent tool for preheating needs.

“Ultimately, these are smart grills that break the mold of what outdoor chefs have come to expect from even the most top-notch grills,” says Shane Kistel.

The new technology empowers Traeger grills to heat up faster than ever with precision controlling over temperature for a perfect sear every time. The drivetrain relies on an industry-first brushless motor that is guaranteed to perform optimally for years to come.

WiFIRE technology empowers users to grill on the go, whether that means monitoring temperatures during a quick run to the grocery store or heating up the grill to be ready to go as soon as they get home. The provided app seamlessly connects to users’ smartphones and allows them to monitor food temperatures, alter the heat, and set timers. Also through the app, users can download recipes from a database of hundreds of professional recipes and enjoy the step-by-step guidance it provides.

“No other product on the market performs at the level of flavor and functionality that Traeger products do,” says Shane Kistel. “There’s really no better grill right now.”

MARYLAND ENTREPRENEUR CREATES CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK TO COMPETE WITH FACEBOOK SOCIAL MEDIA

Chirp Social Network

The CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK Announced a fully functional alternative social network to Facebook that dose not profit from personal user data.

“I’m excited to bring the CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK
privacy first policy to social networking.CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK enables anyone to ‘hop over’
to totally private networking now.””

— Ricardo De La Cerda

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, US, June 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK announced today that global beta testing has been completed for a fully functional alternative social network that does not profit from personal user data. The developers at CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK say they have unintentionally gone global based on responses from around the world. They are pleased with the initial response from individuals who signed up on their mobile phone.

CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK testers say CHIRP performs like their current social network. CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK is different because it lets users operate with the confidence of total data privacy. Bob Rager, among the beta testers, says “I’ve been unwilling to use the popular Facebook social network very much because of privacy concerns. I also resent not
being paid an affiliate fee for making my personal use data available for commercial purposes every time I log on for anything.”

CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK was created in response to a widely reported dissatisfaction by
some demographic groups who no longer go to the primary social network first for social
communications. CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK Founder Ricardo De La Cerda, a long time
programmer, understood these concerns. He decided to sponsor development of a new
mobile social network for individuals and groups to communicate without feeling that someone
was watching over their private lives. “I’m excited to bring the CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK
privacy first policy to social networking. People use their social network to document their lives.
Many, however, feel cheated that they don’t get an affiliate fee based on money derived from
use of their collected personal data. CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK enables anyone to ‘hop over’
to totally private networking now.”

About CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK
People around the world use social networks such as Facebook to connect with friends and
family plus people from their early lives all the way back to childhood. Now those people can
enjoy the benefits of a new global social network as individuals and groups, both public and
private, for all the same uses and reasons that they have come to expect. CHIRP SOCIAL
NETWORK neither collects cookies nor tracks every single click you make. CHIRP SOCIAL
NETWORK guarantees that it doesn’t sell individual user data.
CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK…HOP TO IT!

Wedin, Roxbury," presumably a piano maker from Massachusetts during that time period.

The top of the table highlights a carved, inlaid, and painted flag with 35 stars, symbolizing West Virginia's statehood on June 20, 1863. The side supports resemble anchors, the legs are formed like cannons, and the cross braces are shaped like rifles. The feet represent cannonballs.

HOPO Won 1.5 Million USD of the A Round of Financing

HOPO

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, June 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On 20th,June, the new e-cigarette brand HOPO recently won 1.5 Million USD-level A round of financing, and the current round of financing has not been disclosed.

However, after the A round of financing, HOPO will increase investment in team formation ,product research and development, At the same time, the remaining funds will be used for the company's future operations and the construction of the international market.

Shenzhen HOPO Technology Co., Ltd. was founded in January 2019. The company team has a background in technology from the US and Canada, as well as veterans who have been deeply involved in the e-cigarette industry for many years. The company have rich experience in Internet and e-commerce operations, and their development potential is immeasurable.

It is reported that HOPO has invested over 1 million USD in product development in the early stage of development, and the company will release the first new product HOPO - IRON on 28th,June.

HOPO adheres to the innovative concept in atomization technology and E-liquid technology. In terms of atomization technology, the cartridge uses a new structural design, multiple leak-proof, and perfectly solves problems such as E-liquid leakage, flying E-liquid and paste core in the industry.

Secondly, HOPO has done ample market research on the Chinese market in order to meet the taste needs of Chinese people. Now, the E-liquid flavor of the Chinese tea series is being developed and is expected to be launched in this year.
This tea series of E-liquid uses pure natural plant extract technology to revolutionize the E-liquid component for the first time. It replaces the traditional flavor with pure natural plant extract and spice, making the atomized taste more realistic.

HOPO's brand philosophy is "atomization technology to improve life", the team will steadily and steadily make products, slowly integrate into the e-cigarette market, and transport e-cigarettes to the smokers into a more comprehensive way, creating the big vaping world with more freedom.

HOPO CEO said: At this stage, the e-cigarette products have not yet reached the final form, and the products still have a lot of room for improvement. Therefore, in the situation of e-cigarette product development, supply chain and user awareness, HOPO will invest tens of millions of dollars in product research development and brand marketing, and will further increase capital investment in product technology innovation, E-liquid compatibility and taste, and create the most reliable e-cigarettes, and use technology to improve life.

From the perspective of the global market, according to statistics, there are about 320 million in China, accounting for one-third of the total number of smokers in the world. The number of Chinese smokers is about four times that of American smokers, but the penetration rate of electronic cigarettes in China is less than 1%. The United States has more than 13%. There are more than 1 billion smokers in the world, and the e-cigarette market at home and abroad has great potential for development. We believe that the innovation and technological strength of HOPO will be able to stand out from many emerging e-cigarette brands in the future.

Comfort Keepers Fort Myers Celebrated National Day of Joy

Comfort Keepers Ft. Myers

Senior Companion care Fort Myers Fl and Live-in Care Port Charlotte Fl Specialist share Day of Joy information

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, USA, June 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Comfort Keepers Fort Myers Celebrated National Day of Joy

Comfort Keepers® and their Caregivers across the Country celebrated yesterday’s National Day of Joy. The National Day of Joy, sponsored by Comfort Keepers, is about finding joy in everyday moments. Comfort Keepers Fort Myers, is a locally owned and operated franchise that provides adults with senior companion care Fort Myers Fl teams. In-home caregiver work is reliably performed by Live-in care Port Charlotte Fl that are caring and compassionate.

Locally, we surveyed our team of highly skilled compassionate caregivers that provide senior companion care Fort Myers Fl, and here is what they said was essential to them:

* Sharing a meal with one another
* Giving a friend a hug
* Being around friends and family
* Being around my co-workers
* Love is Joy!
* Serving our community
* My Kids
* Life
* Make our seniors laugh
* Learning from our seniors
* Being able to make another person smile.

Too often, the pursuit of joy is relegated to the background of people's lives as they tackle their day-to-day responsibilities. But finding joy, no matter your age, is vital for maintaining your physical health, mental health, and overall well-being.

At a time when the daily news is dominated by crisis, division and cynicism, the National Day of Joy is designed to be an antidote to negativity. It's a day for taking time, whether it's five minutes, an hour or a whole day, to focus on the things that bring you joy, and help others experience it too.

Experiencing joy also has beneficial mental and physical health effects, as it releases dopamine and serotonin, important neurotransmitters that help regulate movement, learning, mood, and emotional responses. Experiencing joy on a more regular basis can help to reduce negative feelings and emotions and improve overall well-being.

Comfort Keepers Fort Myers, is a provider of in-home care for seniors and other adults, recently questioned almost 5400 respondents across the Country only to find what many of us already know:

Family is the most crucial factor when it comes to experiencing joy.
People of all ages need sunshine in their lives to improve mood and outlook.
Once grandchildren enter the picture, they are the center of the senior's focus.

As we age, our overall level of joy increases while the perception that there is enough joy in the world decreases. Reading is a critical component of joy for seniors.

Seniors also find joy in getting out in the sun and remembering old times, whether that be listening to old records or looking through photo albums.
Traveling is extremely important to people of all ages, including those who live in states with a large number of tourist destinations.

The survey profoundly shows that the need for joy is universal, but what brings joy to each of us varies by the individual. Here are some of our favorite answers to: What was your most joyful moment?

Here is what they related to us:

* The birth of my children
* Laughing with friends
* Returning home safely each day
* My service dog
* R&R on a warm summer day
* Smelling the air right after it rains in the spring
* My grandchildren and flowers
* The day I married my husband 49 years ago

We parsed and dissected the survey results and found that Florida has a National Joy Ranking of 23 when compared to the other states. Music is the most joyful activity.

Comfort Keepers Fort Myers is so committed to promoting joy and inspiring others to make the world a more joyful place, that the company registered the last Wednesday in June as the National Day of Joy.
Please comment telling us about your #Day of Joy and like our Facebook page.

The entire survey results can be found at the National National Day of Joy page.

At Comfort Keepers Fort Myers, senior care is designed to meet a senior's unique care needs. Our caregivers focus their responsibility not only on a senior's physical well-being, but, with Comfort Keepers, their social, mental, and emotional well-being are also nurtured and cared for.

Frank Ruggles to Partner with National Park Trust to Follow the Steps of Ansel Adams in the 79 Year Project

Capturing our national parks

Frank Ruggles to Follow the Steps of Ansel Adams in the 79 Year Project

Former National Parks Eminent Photographer Frank Lee Ruggles is announcing that he has recently kicked off the research phase of his most ambitious photography project to date. In association with the National Park Trust and Ricoh-Pentax USA, Frank will embark on an 18-month expedition to locate the exact locations where legendary photographer Ansel Adams photographed his iconic 150 official-image portfolios for the National Parks in 1941–42.

Once he has located the exact spot where each of the 150 photographs was captured, Frank will then re-shoot each image, shot-for-shot on the 79th anniversary of the day each was captured by Adams, beginning on October of 2020. 79 years being the average life-span of an American, the comparison of these two sets of images will reveal the environmental changes in the National Parks over the course of one American lifetime in a way never before attempted. To best make an apples-to-apples comparison, Ruggles will be using a Deardorff 8×10 inch black-and-white film camera similar to the exact model Adams used a lifetime ago.

Back in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia, Frank will hand-process each negative and print it on traditional fiber-based silver gelatin photo paper. Copies of every photograph will be donated to the National Park Service’s Historic Image collection and a copy of each will also be made available to the National archives, where the original Ansel Adams photographs are permanently stored. An additional set of images will be on tour throughout the US at National Parks and Galleries from coast to coast. A coffee-table book featuring the results of the expedition will be released in 2021.

79 years ago, Master Photographer Ansel Adams was hired by the Department of the Interior Secretary Harold Ickes to photograph the National Parks with his 8×10 black and white film camera. In all he captured about 150 images of the Parks, however due to the attack on Pearl Harbor and the US becoming involved in World War II, funding for The Mural Project was pulled and Adams’ efforts were cut short.
Decades later, Ruggles was hired by the National Park Service for the Digital Imaging Project to go photograph America’s treasures. As he traveled the country he began to recognize some of the locations of Adams’ famous photographs, but at many of the locations, Frank noted some extreme and surprising environmental changes. This was the inspiration for the 79 Years Project which will capture on film what Frank has been observing for the last three decades in our National Parks.

Frank’s career started as a U.S. Army Paratrooper for several years before serving in the Virginia Guard as a Military Police Officer. He then pivoted to a completely new career field as a photographer, following in the footsteps of his Artistic Hero, Ansel Adams. Like Adams, Frank served as a one of the select few National Parks Official Photographers from 2007–2011; a position only held by a handful of people in the Park Service’s 100-year history.

In all, Ruggles has had the honor of serving the last five Presidential Administrations as a soldier, Federal Contractor and Federal Employee, but he doesn’t feel like he’s done serving yet. His goal is to use this project and its images to inspire a new generation of National Park fans and environmentalist. He feels like his continued conservation efforts are simply an extension of the service to his country he began in 1985.
At the conclusion of the 79 Years project, we will be able to look at the amazing time capsule that Adams left for us; a beautiful, consistent portfolio of 14 National Parks, taken by one photographer. We can then compare those images to Frank’s 2020–21 series of photographs which will show just how much environmental change has affected our parks.

Ruggles says of his project;
“Folks might argue over the scientific data about climate change, but when people see these images, I suspect they will believe their own eyes (and hopefully join in the efforts to save our natural world.) I know that no single project can save the National Parks, but through this project, I will be able to offer a new way to see how our environment has changed. Not over an unimaginable 200 years, but over a single human lifetime… and if enough people are inspired, together, maybe we can move the needle towards a brighter environmental future.”

American Chest Co., crafted wooden "Silver Flatware & Jewelry Boxes" still made in America – REALLY?

Launched in 2007, America's Business to Consumers provides a venue for U.S. products. American Chest Co., crafted wooden "Flatware & Jewelry Boxes" featured.

If every American purchase one U.S. made product per year the impact would be $9 billion. That creates an amazing amount of jobs for USA workers!”

— J. J. Anayannis

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, June 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Made in USA products offered on USAB2C.com run the gamut from: toys, to tools, homegoods, towels, work & dress gloves, kitchen gear, work & trouble lights, decorative windmills, sunglasses, children's shoes, scissors, office clocks, nail clippers and more.

This month, "American Chest Company" is featured.
David "Mac" McLoughlin has been in the gift and tabletop industries for over 40 years. Starting as a Sales Rep for TOWLE Silversmiths, he learned early on that there is a very special position reserved in the U.S. marketplace for QUALITY. Any manufacturer can make goods cheaply, and there is always someone who wants to buy the least expensive, but quality goods will always be appreciated and demanded by those who want only the finest!

From selling fine silver at Towle to traveling the world as Executive Product Manager for Schmid Brothers, Mac developed products and designs for such notable brands as Hummels, Walt Disney Products, Norman Rockwell, Love Is, Raggedy Ann & Andy, Beatrix Potter, and many more.

Through the 1990s Mac grew Eureka Mfg. Co. to be the Largest Manufacturer of hardwood chests in the U.S. He established distributors for their fine Jewelry and Flatware Chest in the Scandinavian countries, as well as in France. Reed & Barton Handcrafted Chests became the best-selling brand of hardwood chests under Macs direction and perseverance.

Mac then brought Reed & Barton Chests into the cigar humidor market just as the cigar boom was about to happen. He partnered with the Fuentes/Newman Co.'s, which made the bestselling Arturo Fuentes cigar line, and together they created a new exceptionally high quality humidor product line under the brand Diamond Crown Humidors by Reed & Barton. During the cigar craziness of the late 1990s this became the best-selling brand of high quality humidors throughout the world and they are still selling Diamond Crown Humidor made today by American Chest Company!

Reed & Barton ended up closing Eureka Mfg. Co. the year after Mac left. 225 workers were put out of work and all of the designs were sent over to China to be copied. Reed & Barton still sold Reed & Barton Handcrafted Chests, but now they were being handcrafted in China, using MDF board, not hardwoods, and using paper printed to look like mahogany or cherry woods, which was then laminated onto the MDF panels in order to make handcrafted chests at much lower costs.

Thus, through the fall of Reed & Barton as a quality American Manufacturer, Mac saw opportunity! In 2010 he procured an interest and agreement with a Co. which had been a small competitor of Eureka Mfg. Co. Made in U.S.A. is the governance for the Co., using only the finest hardwoods, making only the finest handcrafted hardwood chests in classic designs. This new Co., the American Chest Company, will only take the less traveled. Make it superb, or do not make it at all!
American Chest has since stretched and outgrown the original factory!

The search to increase production while still maintaining all of the governance of the Co. led Mac to step back in time – Amish Craftsmen; strong men who share the same love of fine wood, beautiful designs and craftsmanship. The Amish, who have integrity in everything they do and in what they build. The Amish, who take a design and always look to overbuild the item. These are the partners that Mac has chosen to work with in the continued growth of the American Chest Company!

Mac has so much respect for the way the Amish work, the quality they infuse into each product they produce and the beauty of their work, as well as their integrity and authentic genuineness is awe inspiring. Strength of faith, devotion to family and the commitment to their communities these are some of the finest American workers Mac has ever been associated with. The American Chest Co. grows in this world market because of the strength and experience of Mac McLoughlin and his chosen association with fine Amish craftsmen.
