Flamenco Soleá to Save the Arctic

ArcticCry, a sole to give voice to the Arctic.

New York, NY, December 07, 2017 –(PR.com)– In response to Greenpeace’s Save the Arctic campaign, and specifically its effort to defend the Arctic wildlife, artist Eva718 has created the QRt Arctic Cry (Soleá) – a photograph augmented with an audio track that is activated via a QR code – to help support the Save the Arctic campaign.

Sang by “cantaor” Antonio Puerto, and using a photograph by Juan Kratzmaier, Arctic Cry is a modern version of a “soleá,” as it is based in one of the most basic palos of Flamenco music, from the southern region of Spain. Eva718 uses the soleá structure to give voice to the Arctic, as she “hears it”:
If you could hear me
If you could feel my cry
You would not let me die

“The Arctic Ocean is home to incredible wildlife, from majestic polar bears to blubbery walruses, mysterious narwhals and graceful seabirds. But the sea ice they depend on is vanishing at a terrifying speed. Without the ice to hunt, rest, and breed, the very survival of polar bears and other wildlife is under threat,” excerpt from Greenpeace’s Save the Arctic web page.

Eva 718 created Arctic Cry (Soleá) as a way participate in this global effort and join others in campaigning for the need to protect our world, our home.

Artist and Teacher, Don Mathias, Partners with Nogginwear to Roll Out New Peanizles Products

Nogginwears support of artists continues to grow with creation of hats and apparel for local cartoonist.

Boston, MA, December 07, 2017 –(PR.com)– Nogginwear, the First & Only Premium Hat Subscription is rolling out several hats this year, including 3 hats for cartoonist, illustrator and children’s book author Don Mathias. Don is the creator and author of the wildly successful comic collection children’s book series Peanizles (pronounced Pea-Nih-Zles).

Don Mathias, a mild-mannered art teacher by day and a book writer, cartoonist and illustrator by night, created Peanizles in July 2009 and now has 3 books published, collecting his “almost daily strip” along with a recently released and published children’s storybook “The Day the World Lost Its Color.” Mr. Mathias has also had his artwork featured in several book compilations, including The Sakai Project, celebrating thirty years of multiple award-winning comic book creator, writer, artist, Stan Sakai’s marvelous samurai rabbit saga, Usagi Yojimbo and Team Cul de Sac: Cartoonists Draw the Line at Parkinson’s, a tribute book to Richard Thompson’s comic Cul De Sac.

Don grew up and still resides in Andover, Massachusetts. He has had a passion for drawing comics his entire life, starting his first newspaper comic in 1998 which ran in the Andover Townsman for more than ten years. “I met with Scott Weldon knowing Nogginwear hats are amazing. I had several of their hats in my collection and had a desire to create really cool hats but had no idea how to proceed,” said Mr. Mathias. “What is awesome about the Nogginwear program is all I had to do was supply the artwork and promote the final product on my social network to my fans. Scott and his team didn’t reveal what they had in mind for the hats, so when I received the designs for my hats I was blown away at how perfectly they had captured the essence of my characters in the form of a hat- exactly what I wanted, I was ecstatic.”

Nogginwear is unique in its business model because they don’t just design and manufacture diverse premium-level quality retail hats for their subscription business but also use their experience to advise and work with many artists from all over the world to capture the core personality of the artists work and combine it with an appropriate and great hat style. “Working with Don on this project has been very rewarding. He was open to our ideas and let us tap into our experience to create hats that were appropriate to his amazing style and characters,” said Scott Weldon, CEO of Nogginwear. Weldon goes on to say, “We make it easy for artists and cartoonists. We’ve created a program where they have a zero up front investment in the project. Nogginwear creates the hat based on artwork supplied, and then the artist promotes the hat to their vast social media network while Nogginwear simultaneously promotes it within its own network which then generates pre-orders and sufficient interest to justify the size of the production run. Nogginwear also takes complete responsibility for production costs as well as shipment to customers.” Weldon goes on the say: “Nogginwear is built on a love of making hats. Working with artists like Don Mathias just enhances our passion and creative drive.”

Nogginwear is a name that has become synonymous with its ever-growing legacy of limited edition hats. Nogginwear is quickly getting known around the world for hat design and creativity, by partnering with successful individuals like Chef Brian Duffy from Bar Rescue, Chef Chad Rosenthal from Food Network, Stan Sakai, creator of Usagi Yojimbo, Hillbilly Weatherman and many more.

About Nogginwear, LLC
Nogginwear is co-founded by 3 guys from New England; Scott Weldon, CEO, Bob Callahan, COO and Chris Lambert, CFO. Nogginwear came to life sitting around a table at Starbucks sketching out how to make hats fun, limited edition, one of a kind and delivered right to your mailbox. The Nogginwear team has well over 20 years of hat industry experience designing hats of all styles, fabrics and applications for companies all over the world.

Brits Will Spend 2 Billion Pounds Replacing Lost, Broken or Eaten Gifts This Christmas

London, UK – 7 December 2017 – A new survey revealing the gifting habits of the British, French and Germans from leading smart location company Tile[1] shows that Brits will fork out a staggering £2 Billion this Christmas on replacement presents having lost or broken the original gift. In addition, a surprising number of guilty individuals simply keep them as a treat for themselves. It’s not just the Brits who are wasting time and money on gifts not given, 47% of Germans end up buying additional gifts, spending up to €2.5 Billion a year!

With the best of intentions, Brits try to be organised with a staggering 44% planning their Christmas shopping in advance. It’s no surprise they put a plan in place, as 60% state that it’s easy to lose Christmas presents when traipsing around shops with lots of bags. The French are the most festive and love Christmas shopping, with 57% making a day of it, whereas the Germans dread it, with 12% leaving it all to their partner. It seems that after all the stress of shopping, all parties think they deserve a reward with over 25% choosing to keep a gift they intended for someone else.

Despite their organisation, Brits are also the most forgetful, with over half (53%) hiding presents so well they forget where they’ve hidden them. The Brits are not alone however, as over 30% of the French and Germans hide presents too, with the back of the wardrobe being the most popular hiding place.

Changing their mind or hiding presents isn’t the only explanation for Christmas gifts never reaching the recipient, with over 10% of Brits and Germans admitting to eating a present intended for someone else. Only 7% of the French do this, perhaps explaining why they have a reputation for being slimmer. Brits, Germans and the French aren’t just eating their presents, they are drinking them too, with over 18% all keeping back a bottle of wine. According to the research, selection boxes (29%) and bottles of wine (18%), were the most common presents that the French and Brits never hand out, with 14% of Germans never ending up gifting either a smartphone or a tablet.

Simon Fleming-Wood, CMO, Tile said: “The spirit of Christmas is all about giving so it’s surprising to see how many gifts never make it to the intended recipient. Of course, some might just be too appealing to give away, but it’s a shame to see that so many are simply getting lost or stolen. Tile’s smartphone app, devices and community can not only help reunite you with lost belongings, but also enable you to anonymously help others to find what matters to them most.”

Tile’s new Pro Series range features its most powerful Bluetooth trackers to date, Tile Style and Tile Sport. The trackers make it quicker and easier to find things you’ve lost or misplaced, making them both a way to keep you organised at Christmas and a fantastic stocking filler for friends and relatives that are always misplacing their keys, wallets and bags.

The iOS and Android-enabled Tile App allows users to ring Tiles attached to their belongings if nearby, find their phone even when it is on silent mode, and view the last known location of their item on a map further afield. If an item is out of range, you can mark it as ‘lost’ in the app to put others running the app on alert to update its location, helping you to find your things in over 230 countries and territories.

Tile Style and Tile Sport retail for £29.99 and are available online from Tile.com and major retailers including Amazon, Argos, Currys PC World, John Lewis and Maplin.
