Glimmering Pavillion, one of the pieces of art, created by Taiwanese artist Eric Chen, is a transformation of the old abandoned Daxi Elementary bus shelter using iridescent cellophane. The transformation is a reflection of Taitung’s bright sunshine and adolescent imagination. Glimmering Pavilion Location: Taimali Township Daxi Elementary Bus Shelter Taiwanese Artist: Eric Chen Taitung County Magistrate April Yao said Taitung is stunning. It’s not necessary to embellish its natural beauty. Taitung’s prowess unfolds before our very eyes when witnessing the unity of our local culture, land and nature. As such, in the makings of Taitung, the form our art takes, does not conform. The entire county—the ocean and mountains that surround us—will be seen as one big art gallery as we again hold the Nanhui Art Project this year.

Biocidin Botanicals™ Launches Dentalcidin® Oral Care System, the First Dentaceutical™ Solution for Oral Microbiome Health

Biocidin Botanicals

Biocidin Botanicals ™, a pioneer in botanical supplements and microbiome health, announced today the launch of its two-step Dentalcidin ® Oral Care System. The system consists of the company’s reformulated and repackaged Dentalcidin® Oral Microbiome Toothpaste along with its Dentalcidin® LS Liposomal Rinse. Combining the toothpaste and oral rinse into a two-step system ensures comprehensive health benefits for customers. It also recognizes the science-backed connection between the oral microbiome and whole-body health. ( Learn more ) “We’re excited to take what we’ve learned over the past 30-plus years about microbiome health and apply it to the things we use every day, like toothpaste and mouth rinse,” said Rachel Fresco, L.Ac., Ph.D., Biocidin Botanicals’ Founder and Formulator. “Research continues to confirm that whole-body health starts in the mouth. These products are more than just toothpaste and mouthwash. We’ve coined a new term for it. They’re “Dentaceuticals ™” – natural dental formulations that improve the health of teeth and gums and ultimately support whole-body wellness. When used together, these products provide incredible health support!” Dentalcidin Oral Microbiome Toothpaste® has been available for several years. In response to customer feedback and keeping with the company’s sustainability goals, Biocidin Botanicals reformulated and repackaged the toothpaste this year, a decision that reflects its commitment to both people and planet. “As a company, we believe our choices matter,” Fresco said. “We care about our customers and listen to them. We also constantly evaluate our impact on the planet. That’s why we made the decision to reformulate the toothpaste to be 100% plant-based and to deliver it in a sleek, stand-up tube that is 100% recyclable. It’s easier to use and easier on the planet.” Both products in the Dentalcidin® Oral Care System are powered by the 18 botanical extracts and essential oils in Biocidin®, the company’s broad-spectrum, legacy formula. This clinically effective, evidence-based proprietary blend has been trusted by health professionals for over 32 years. Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratories (now Genova Diagnostics) called it one of the most potent natural formulations they’ve ever analyzed. With other select botanicals providing added synergy and benefits, the entire system relies on a 100% natural, plant-based, and chemical-free ingredient list to give practitioners and consumers robust health benefits derived from the best botanical sources. The Dentalcidin® Oral Care System delivers the results usually associated with toothpaste and an oral rinse. It whitens teeth, freshens breath, and is gentle enough for sensitive teeth. But thanks to Biocidin Botanicals’ commitment to putting “Serious Science Behind Every Smile™,” its benefits go far beyond. Comprehensive university research, case studies, rigorous testing, and innovative formulation processes have resulted in a system with unique health benefits. The Dentalcidin® Oral Care System: Assists in removing oral biofilms (plaque) Utilizes liposomal technology for deeper penetration in the periodontal area* Supports gum and gingival health with targeted ingredients such as CoQ10, quercetin, clove, and myrrh* Provides tissue-soothing activity* Supports oral microbiome balance for whole-body health* Keeps teeth feeling clean and smooth all-day “This system really demonstrates the power of botanicals to support a balanced oral microbiome,” Fresco said. “Because oral health directly impacts systemic health, a balanced oral microbiome also supports whole-body health, including cognitive, respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and joint health. But the reverse is also true. Poor oral health impacts more than just your mouth. That motivated us to develop something uniquely powerful, an innovative Dentaceutical solution.” Dentists, dental hygienists, and integrative and functional practitioners recommend Dentalcidin® toothpaste and oral rinse. Functional dentist Dr. Ariana Ebrahimian says of the products, “I highly recommend Biocidin Botanicals’ oral care products to my patients and use the liposomal rinse in our scaling procedures. They are incredibly effective at busting up harmful biofilms in the mouth and rebalancing the oral microbiome without the harsh side effects of chemicals.” The launch of Biocidin Botanicals’ Dentalcidin™ Oral Care System is a true breakthrough in oral care, bolstering the company’s position as a thought leader and innovator in the botanical supplements space. ABOUT BIOCIDIN BOTANICALS ™ Biocidin Botanicals™ is a leader in botanical supplements and a pioneer in microbiome health. Its legacy broad-spectrum botanical blend Biocidin® was formulated in 1989 in response to challenging health conditions related to microbial imbalances. More than 30 years later, the company offers a curated line of targeted support products to boost patient health. Healthcare practitioners have utilized these clinically effective, evidence-based products for over three decades to help millions of patients achieve vibrant health and wellness. Biocidin Botanicals™ will continue to lead the way in functional and integrative medicine through its plant-powered products.

FutureTrack® by Union Savings Bank, a Goal-Based Planning Service Offers Unique Combination of Personal Coaching, Financial Insights and Digital Tools

Union Savings Bank

Union Savings Bank, a Danbury, Conn.-based community bank, announces the availability of “FutureTrack® by Union Savings Bank,” a goal-based planning service for customers. The program is designed to help customers achieve a variety of life goals – home ownership, starting a family, college planning, saving and budgeting, retirement and more – through one-on-one support with personal FutureTrack coaches and on-going financial insights and digital tools for managing finances. “We know people have diverse financial goals at varying stages of life, and each person defines success differently. But going it alone can be daunting,” said Rick Judd, USB’s Executive Vice President overseeing FutureTrack. “FutureTrack is an opportunity for people to finally feel like they are not tackling financial decisions on their own. Our FutureTrack coaches will help guide people so they can tackle life goals one at a time, building financial habits that will help them throughout their financial journey.” Judd also stated that with inflation rising and recent studies showing that nearly two-thirds of Americans are considered financially unhealthy, FutureTrack is more important than ever. The first step with FutureTrack (click to view:15 videos) is to book an appointment with the FutureTrack team for an assessment. A FutureTrack coach will ask questions about the person’s current financial situation, future goals, both short- and long-term. From there, the coach and “FutureTracker” set a plan on how to achieve those goals. The FutureTrackers will then receive frequent check-ins, educational materials, and recommendations to support them on their unique financial journey. To book an appointment, people can visit any USB branch, book an appointment online, or call the Customer Service Center at 866-872-1866. To become a “FutureTracker” and receive ongoing support, a relationship with USB is required, which enables the customer to take full advantage of the digital tools. Judd also explained that FutureTrack provides the perfect combination of human and technological support that people desire. “Access to ongoing coaching with an assigned FutureTrack coach with regular check-ins, our artificial intelligence (AI) tool like Spending Insights that help monitor spending habits, and USB Round-Up that enables customers to round up USB debit card purchases and automatically move that money into a savings account, plus educational information – all work together to help customers achieve their goals. We know there is a significant need for this kind of service based on industry research and feedback from our customers, and we don’t believe there’s anything quite like FutureTrack in the local community bank space.” According to Forbes “Most consumers are ’goal-oriented’ and focused on long-term savings goals. When it comes to those goals…people are hungry for more help reaching them and personalized advice at key moments. Increasingly, that help could come from artificial intelligence. A recent Accenture survey of North American banking customers discovered 46 percent are willing to use ‘robo-advice,’ 40 percent would consider switching banks to get more personalized service, and 39 percent said they want their financial institution to provide ‘actionable financial advice on a proactive, real-time basis.’” Judd adds, “This is not a one-and-done program ─ it is an ongoing understanding of the customer and their financial goals. FutureTrack is here for our customers throughout their journey, no matter the changes along the way.” In terms of the certified coaches, there are currently 23 Union Savings Bank FutureTrack coaches, and the Bank has more currently going through the certification process. The plan is to add more coaches on an on-going basis, as well. Each coach has completed extensive training through BVS Performance Solutions, a leading financial training company. The coaches are also trained to help customers navigate the various products and services Union Savings Bank offers and can direct customers to various subject matter experts, like mortgage loan originators, financial advisors, and business banking loan officers. Judd said that FutureTrack is yet another example of how the bank is using technology combined with personal service to benefit customers in their daily lives. “This service is designed to enhance the customer experience and help our customers feel like they have a trusted partner they can rely on. It’s less transactional and more relationship-driven and ultimately helps improve financial well-being, all of which are part of our mission.” For more information, please visit FutureTrack www.unionsavings.com/futuretrack. Established in 1866 and headquartered in Danbury, Conn., Union Savings Bank is a $3.0 billion mutual bank dedicated to being the bank of choice.

Gregorys Coffee Engages Trust Relations for Timely Communications Campaign

Trust Relations

Trust Relations, the fast-growing, strategic communications and integrated marketing agency, announced that it has partnered with Gregorys Coffee, a family-run specialty coffee company with 38 retail stores across the Mid-Atlantic, to launch a strategic communications campaign. Gregorys Coffee enlisted Trust Relations to revamp the company’s messaging and marketing materials, as well as execute on several brand activations as part of a targeted regional media outreach campaign to announce new brand offerings. The agency, which has a strong foothold in the New York media market, will also deploy a thought leadership campaign for Gregorys Coffee and its Founder, Gregory Zamfotis. “As our team and brick and mortar locations have expanded, we also have a lot of exciting plans in store for the remainder of the year,” said Gregorys Coffee Founder and CEO, Gregory Zamfotis. “I feel confident that April and the Trust Relations team can help us make the biggest splash and bring to life some of the creative ideas they shared.” Gregory grew up in the NYC food industry thanks in part to his immigrant, serial entrepreneur father who owned several casual, counter-service food establishments. His childhood was spent alongside his father operating the family businesses—and although he took a detour from the food sector to pursue an undergraduate business degree and enlist in law school—Gregory found himself drawn back to his entrepreneurial roots and passions for coffee and healthy food. With the help and guidance of his father, Gregory set out to create a specialty coffee shop that would provide amazing coffee and baked goods without sacrificing the guest’s precious time. Gregorys matches New York’s hustle-and-bustle culture––without compromising quality. All limited-edition coffees served at Gregorys Coffee are ethically sourced from small-operation coffee growers around the world, while the in-house baked goods are made from scratch by Gregorys. They also have an expansive vegan + plant-based offering that is second to none in the coffee industry. “We’re so excited to be working with Gregory and his rockstar marketing team on deploying some creative brand activations for Gregorys Coffee,” said Trust Relations President and Founder, April White. “The brand has witnessed more consumers seeking healthier food and beverage options without compromising taste, quality, or experience. We look forward to announcing Gregorys Coffee’s new products and developments in the months ahead and are honored to work with such a well-respected brand in the F&B industry.” For more information about Gregorys Coffee, go to www.gregoryscoffee.com/. About Trust Relations Founded in 2019, Trust Relations is a fully remote strategic communications firm that creates nimble and proactive “dream teams” for clients through a national network of the industry’s best and brightest practitioners. "Trust Relations" is a term coined by President and Founder April (Margulies) White to describe a new approach to strategic communications focused on communicating clients' authentic actions, values, and goodwill. In technology, trust relationships are an administration and communication link between two domains. In communications, they are a bond of mutual respect between a brand and the people it serves. The firm excels at identifying inspiring ways for clients to show their brand value by identifying supportive proof points and ideating creative activations that demonstrate their unique story and value proposition. For more information, visit https://www.trustrelations.agency.

GETIR IS THROWING IT BACK TO THE 1990s

Getir

Today, with inflation continuing to raise prices on common household items including food, rapid grocery delivery app Getir announced it would roll back the cost of several popular food items to prices that haven’t been seen since the 1990s. According to the Department of Labor, grocery prices increased by 1.3% in July from the prior month, and rose 13.1% in July from one year ago – the fastest annual pace since 1979. “The global inflation crisis is hitting major U.S. cities very hard, and prices continue to creep up, particularly when it comes to everyday household items,” said Langston Dugger, Head of U.S. Operations at Getir. “Getir is committed to providing value to our customers, so we decided to offer some of our top products at more affordable prices.” Items featured in this promotion include Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, Vlasic Kosher Dill Pickle Spears, Hershey’s Milk Chocolate, and several brands and varieties of dish soap, toothpaste, and breakfast cereals among other foodstuffs. In some cases, the price reductions are quite dramatic; for example, an 8 ounce bag of Lay’s Potato Chips normally sells on Getir for $4.99, and will now be offered at $1.89. A full list of 1990s-priced items is available below. “This promotion, in addition to providing a nostalgic way to offer savings to our customers, is emblematic of what the Getir brand has been associated with across Europe for years: convenience, reliability, and a commitment to providing the best possible customer experience,” added Darienne Page, Head of Public Engagement at Getir. According to experts, food-related inflation shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. Getir’s promotion, which launches this week in its U.S. markets of New York, Chicago, and Boston, will run through September 23rd. About Getir: Getir is the pioneer of ultrafast grocery delivery. The tech company, based in Istanbul, has revolutionized last-mile delivery with its “groceries in minutes” delivery proposition, offering approximately 2,000 everyday items to its customers.
