Global Net Solutions (GNS) has selected Bob Gold & Associates to represent its global communication efforts and promote the launch of its new IoT security solution, the S-Badge.

"As our vision grows to become the standard in high-security, we're confident Bob Gold & Associates will help grow our brand and drive awareness for our proprietary solution."

According to a media release, GNS's S-Badge is a facilities-based security solution to increase safety and eliminate threats and breaches in high-security environments, such as airports, hospitals, school districts and college campuses, government agencies and more.

Unlike other systems, the S-Badge leverages the latest IoT technology to enhance security and unlock an entirely new range of functionality and data that go far beyond today's standards. The proprietary, turn-key solution utilizes a system of on-site LoRa gateways and a battery-smart, all-in-one authentication badge that verifies a user's identity based on location, biometric signature and a preprogrammed NFC chip. The S-Badge also features a panic button to discreetly signal an emergency, along with the badges location.

"Global Net Solutions is taking an innovative approach to one of the most pressing challenges every industry faces today," said Bob Gold, president & CEO, Bob Gold & Associates. "With our vast experiences within the IoT space, we are confident that we have the knowledge and expertise to elevate this easy-to-use, scalable solution and company that will change the way organizations protect their staff, students and patients."

    Tea Forté Introduces ‘Matcha’ Collection

    Convenience meets tradition in Tea Forté’s new Ceremonial Matcha Bowl Set and the Matcha Single Steeps.

    The company said its spring harvested, shade grown, stone ground, organic matcha tea is best served in a centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony called chanoyu: a preparation technique known for its centering meditative qualities.

    "The launch of Tea Forté's Matcha collection represents our continued commitment to wellness and cultivating all the potential mental and physical health benefits of tea," says Tea Forté CEO Michael Gebrael. "In addition to our high quality Pure Matcha, we've also blended four distinct flavored Matcha varieties. Prepackaged in pouches measured out for a single serving, our Single Steeps Matcha is ideal for the office, travel, or to keep with you for a boost anytime."

    Tea Forté noted its handcrafted ceremonial tea bowl, handmade bamboo whisk and measuring ladle “encourages serene enjoyment of our premium Kosher, gluten-free and vegan matcha blends.” These include: Pure Matcha, Chocolate Matcha, Coconut Matcha, Ginger Matcha, and Chai Matcha.

    According to a release, in addition to its distinctive taste, matcha is prized for its health benefits. Steeped green tea contains only the antioxidants that can be extracted in water, while with matcha, the whole leaf is consumed.
