Driver Booster 8: The Best Driver Updater and Works Well with NO Internet Connection

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- IObit, the world's best driver updater software provider, today unleashed Driver Booster 8, the new driver updater can work well without internet connection and the database has been enhanced to make sure more than 4.5 million device drivers can be safely and accurately updated.

Many users complained that they cannot update drivers when they have no internet connection, which may be caused by missing/faulty network drivers or current network drivers are not being compatible with a new updated/reinstalled system. To help those users solve the problem, Offline Driver Updater officially joined in the new Driver Booster 8.

This new tool can download and install drivers without network connection. And to make the whole process more clearly, Driver Booster 8 lists a brief instruction at the bottom of the tool as a reference.

Driver Booster 8 also improves a lot on its core feature: the database. The latest version 8 has a larger database which supports 4,500,000 + device drivers and game components. While helping users update missing, faulty and outdated drivers, Driver Booster 8 offers two solutions to help them get the right drivers. Solution one, scan the latest drivers first, that is suitable for users who'd like to enjoy the latest features and more premium game experience; Solution two, scan most stable drivers first, that is suitable for users who prefer to stay at the most stable device.

To ensure the safety for both of solutions, all drivers in its database are coming from the official manufacturers' website and have passed both Microsoft WHQL test and IObit test.

"According to TechRadar's article: Windows 10 has killed off driver updates via Device Manager," said Bing Wang, Product Director at IObit, "it could be harder for common users to get the latest device driver. Driver Booster 8 is a more suitable choice for those users and even for all PC users, as Driver Booster includes all fresh but safe drivers in its Database, it is easiest to use, and it can help users solve common driver issues like no sound issue and network failure problem."

RAMSEY, N.J. -- The award-winning Fountain Spa, a Bergen county family-owned business, announces the Grand Opening and expansion of its location in Ramsey, New Jersey to become The Fountain Spa & Fitness Center, opened to the public for membership sales, tours and workouts on September 21, 2020.

"When the pandemic hit and New York Sports Club gave us notice that they were closing their Ramsey location, we knew exactly what to do. We had been trying to take over that club for ages and restore it back to its original condition as an upscale club," says Rita A. Knutsen, CEO & Founder.

"Our neighbors and community are in dire need of a community center, a safe place where families and friends can enjoy time together, get fit, get out of the house and recharge in a safe, clean, comfortable and friendly environment - while being able to follow all New Jersey State Guidelines," Knutsen continues.

The Knutsen family opened one of the very first state-of-the-art fitness facilities in Bergen County as Quest 1 in 1976 in this exact location. Now, they are using more than three decades of industry experience in opening Fountain Spa & Fitness Center - offering total wellness, fitness and recreational programs in a sanitary, newly renovated, high-quality, relaxed environment.

The updated facility includes a large, well-ventilated, high-ceiling cardio and main gym floor, 12,000 square foot indoor turf field, indoor basketball courts, and outside fields. Additional highlights include an indoor aquatic center with a pool, functional strength training spaces, large group exercise rooms, cycle, yoga and Pilates studios.

Brazilian Flat Track League organizes online race for 2020

SOROCABA, SP, Brazil -- It's not a secret that Covid-19 had 2020 pretty much canceled all over, affecting some of the major events in the USA and abroad, but has also brought people together and fired up new ways for connecting and exchanging ideas, says the Brazilian Flat Track League.

In Brazil, the two biggest custom motorcycle shows - the BMS (Brasil Motorcycle Show) and the Lucky Friends Rodeo - had to be canceled, and with it, the races for the recently created Brazilian Flat Track League. Or, so we thought.

In an effort to not let the sport lose momentum, the Brazilian Flat Track League, the organizers from BMS, and Lucky Friends Rodeo got together to keep the competition going and fire up the teams and racers with an online event that promises to bring the excitement of the race to the audience's screens: the "On Track."

On November 1, 2020, at 1 p.m. (ET/EST), flat track fans worldwide will be able to tune in online and watch "On Track," the first Brazilian flat track race event to be offered online. Viewers will get a taste of how the sport is creating roots among racers and motorcycle enthusiasts in Brazil.

To broadcast the event, the Brazilian FT League will use the platform

Anybody can sign up to watch the race for free, but numbers are limited, so the organizers recommend the public to sign up as soon as possible using the link (there is an English option for singing up at the bottom of the page).

"Everything changed. People are finding new ways to work, to support their favorite restaurants and bars, to be together in general. So why not bring the adrenaline of flat track racing right to the safety of their homes?" says Cezinha Mocelin, founder of BMS Motorcycle. "With an online event, not only are we still making sure the sport keeps growing in Brazil, but we are also guaranteeing the safety of the fans, the racers, and all the team members."

The "On Track" organizers are following all WHO (World Health Organization) recommendations for the participants of the race: health check booths and Covid-19 tests for racers, team members, and production crew, and lots of masks. The race will happen in Sorocaba, SP - Brazil.

Flat Track in Brazil

Flat track races are relatively new in Brazil. The category started to gain popular attention in 2016, at the Lucky Friends Rodeo event, and then with the BMS Motorcycle. With more of a roots appeal and an underground vibe, it quickly gathered momentum among the motorcycle community and the custom culture fans.

In 2019, it became an official race class in the country with the creation of the Brazilian Flat Track League and its first season of official competitions. The League has not only pushed the popularity further, with more media coverage, sponsors, sanctioned events but also gave flat track racing legitimacy in Brazil.

By the beginning of 2020, flat track season in Brazil was shaping up to be the greatest yet, starting in March when a group of nine racers and 12 people from Brazil came to the US for the weekend of FlatOutFriday and Mama Tried, in Milwaukee - Wisconsin.

"Even though the event didn't happen as expected, the time our group had in Milwaukee was crucial for Brazilian flat track. It allowed us to connect even more with other teams and with industry players. We did the best we could under the circumstances at the time, and in the end, we came back to Brazil with a lot accomplished," says Chrys Miranda, Brazilian racer and one of the founding members of the Brazilian Flat Track League.

One of the most significant announcements once "OnTrack" was confirmed, was the addition of the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 411 Flat Track class to the race; besides the traditional H-D Sportster and the H-D Antique hardtail classes.

BMS Motorcycle and Lucky Friends Rodeo

The collaboration between BMS and Lucky Friends Rodeo isn't new. Combining lifestyle, custom culture, attractions like the only Wall of Death in South America, music, art, bike building exhibits, and, of course, races, both events bring together over 20 thousand fans.

"Nothing better than combining our forces to bring to our public and to the fans of Flat Track a new experience. We are preparing a great event, so the audience will be able to feel all the adrenaline from the race straight from their homes", said Flavio Sieber, founder of Lucky Friends Rodeo.

"On Track"

Presented by: Harley-Davidson do Brasil and Royal Enfield Brasil

Sponsored by: MXF, Heineken, Jack Daniels, Urban, and Gedore

Supported by: Mitas, Motobatt, Wings Custom, and Accor Hotels.

WHEN: November 1, 2020 - at 1 p.m. (EST)

A Pilot’s Powerful Memoir Takes Readers from the Ground to the Sky

SEATTLE, Wash. -- A new memoir, a powerful coming of age tale, is set to release this fall. "Unlearning to Fly: A Memoir of Navigating the Turbulence and Bliss of Growing Up in the Sky" (ISBN: 978-1735641300), gives a detailed account of how the author, Russ Roberts, not only helped blow up his backyard with dynamite, but also shared a Volkswagen with a moose. In the air, Roberts was the youngest licensed flight instructor in America. He flew single-engine airplanes across the Atlantic, and commanded airliners around the world. What happened on the ground was quite another story.

Roberts writes how airplanes were the golden thread that secured an otherwise turbulent start to life. In this heartwarming and often heartbreaking story, he tells how he overcame, and had to unlearn what his dysfunctional parents taught him. The author details the difficulties of growing up with an alcoholic parent and describes overcoming his parents strong, peculiar, and even harmful religious teachings.

Airline pilot, broadcaster, sailor, speaker and now author, Captain Russ Roberts says he is, "Not so much an adventurer as a lifetime collector of experiences and stories."

The book has received several reviews during its pre-publication phase.

Chet Burgess, former CNN, executive producer of Interactive Programming, says, "Russ Roberts is the only person I know who knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up, and then realized that dream. 'Unlearning to Fly' serves as a literary metaphor for his, sometimes rocky, relationship with his father. This is a good read."

Joanne Rideout, host and creator of radio's, "The Ship Report," says, "This is truly the only book that I have ever read that describes so clearly what it must be like to sit in the cockpit of an airplane on the runway and at the controls. It was like I was there myself. And take off - the thrill of it, the wonder of it - it made me want to do it too, something I have never thought much about. It was thrilling and made me want to fly."

"Unlearning to Fly: A Memoir of Navigating the Turbulence and Bliss of Growing Up in the Sky" will be available on Amazon, Kindle, and Audible in late November 2020.

For an advance review copy or other media request, contact Russ Roberts from 9-5 p.m. PDT at: 1-434-825-3669.

DIGITAL LOVE by Physician and Musician V. Tiarrá Released Highlighting Relationships In The Digital Age

MIAMI, Fla. -- R&B Fusion Artist V. Tiarrá just released her newest hit video for her single, "Digital Love," just as her prior single, "Batter Up," a lyrical critique to the many issues U.S. Citizens face as politicians "politick" and use their constituents for their own political power, was featured at the 2020 Democratic Party of Miami-Dade's Blue Gala.

In the rhythmic "Digital Love," V. Tiarrá, wants to spread her message that although technology is a popular and common means of connecting in this digital age, it may in fact make us more distant. Instead of being able to obtain true connection from other people, we are often left asking questions to artificial intelligence. V. Tiarrá playfully asks throughout the song, "Siri, do you love me?".

In the just released, colorful and fun "Digital Love" music video, V. Tiarrá makes her point of (dis)connection through the journey of dating using an online dating app. Online dating can be a serious rollercoaster of highs and lows of technology's psychological effects, which are oftentimes programmed to toy with our minds for greater devotion and alliance to the "method" and "application" made to find your true love.

Telling the story of a typical relationship, V. Tiarrá goes on to highlight the ups and downs and darker side of online dating. She speaks to the quickly changing beginning and end where "just like magic...when the stars and the moon will show love....All I need is connection / some real love in this digital world" highlights the height of emotions and hope, until paranoia and disappointment leads to "Siri, do you love me / You used to act like you kinda cared / But now there's no love for me... Siri, do you love me / if you do, would you let me know."

According to Pew Research, 30% of U.S. Adults say they have used an online dating site or app. 45% of users felt more frustrated than the 28% that reported feeling more hopeful. All the while, 60% of women aged 18-34 say someone on a dating site or app continued to contact them after they said they were not interested, while 57% of these women report being sent a sexually explicit message or image they didn't ask for.

V. Tiarrá's lyrics hit home when she asks of 'Siri' early in the song "How about a little affection / A soft touch in this cold, hard world", and shortly thereafter follows up with "People just want attention / By any means / Just give them a mention" where she questions our alliance, ego and relationships as we trade our health, safety and mental health, for "pics on the gram" and "social distance in the club / masks off" all the while having "Siri on the table /That's love."

V. Tiarrá critically questions our society and dating norms where perfection and lofty goals dominate mindset, and everyone is easily disposed of with a simple swipe. Many, within the online dating community, give mere seconds to connect, rather than the hours, days and weeks genuine relationships take to form.

V. Tiarrá as a physician and healthcare professional can understand the complex and long-term effects of new technology. She wants to bring light to the many cultural and societal issues prevalent in today's digital world.

If you or someone you know is in need of mental health services and doesn't know where to start you are not alone. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, 800-273-8255, is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and SAMHSA Treatment Referral Helpline, 1-877-SAMHSA7, is available Monday-Friday 8 am-8 pm EST.

V. Tiarrá has been featured in countless publications, including but not limited to, Newsbreak, The North Dallas Gazette, The Sun-Sentinel, Medium, The Hype Magazine, Sawgrass Sun and Rive Video. Further, V. Tiarrá partners with Headcount, a non-partisan organization that uses the power of music to register voters and promote participation in democracy.

V. Tiarrá Event Dates

9/10/2020 - Digital Love Music Video Official Release

10/24/2020 - Women are Powerful Digital Social

Event info:

V. Tiarrá Bio

V. Tiarrá came to life in 2018. She found her way back to music after a long break, by first pursuing a career in medicine as a physician. She currently works as a Medical Director practicing in South Florida where she can support her hometown and current community. Music has helped V. Tiarrá heal from illness, and helped her find her true inner voice. Her style is a smart and soulful R&B/hip hop/pop mix. V. Tiarrá loves to write lyrics that reflect on the social conditions of the world, ranging from politics, money, feminism, to love. She was born and raised in South Florida.

Increased Sales of Niche Vanilla Product Leads to Company’s Happy Discovery of a Healthy Trend

EUGENE, Ore. -- As Covid-19 lockdowns expanded this year, Singing Dog Vanilla saw grocery sales of its Pure Vanilla Extracts rise along with the public's enthusiasm for home baking. But they were surprised that demand also increased for their Alcohol Free Pure Vanilla Flavor, a product usually consumed by people avoiding alcohol in their diet.

Singing Dog Vanilla's Alcohol-Free Pure Vanilla Flavor is made with real vanilla, but instead of containing alcohol like an extract, the vanilla flavor is carried in a clear, tasteless, vegetable glycerin. Vanilla extract with alcohol is preferred by bakers because the alcohol evaporates leaving only a smooth vanilla flavor behind. So why the 125% increase in sales of non-alcohol vanilla?

"We began asking our online customers what they were baking," says Singing Dog Vanilla Co-founder Bill Wiedmann. "They answered that they weren't. They were making cold dishes such as overnight oats, smoothies, juices, and non-dairy milks from nuts and oats."

Conversations with customers revealed that Singing Dog Vanilla was sitting at the confluence of a few movements within the food world:
1. Clean labels
2. Healthier Diets
3. More time at home to concentrate on numbers 1 and 2.

Consumers are studying nutrition labels and choosing foods with simple, real ingredients. Using them to make healthy meal alternatives, such as overnight oats, and creating tasty vegetable-packed smoothies is gaining popularity. Since these dishes are uncooked, Alcohol Free Pure Vanilla Flavor makes perfect sense. You do not want your vanilla blueberry oatmeal to taste like alcohol. Singing Dog Vanilla just happened to have the right product available for people who suddenly had the time to pursue their passion for healthier food.

About Singing Dog Vanilla:

Founded on April Fool's Day in 2004, Singing Dog Vanilla has offices in Eugene, Oregon and Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. They partner with over 400 vanilla-growing families in Indonesia to bring organic vanilla products to food manufacturers, bakeries, scoop shops, restaurants, and breweries. Singing Dog Vanilla also has a full line of retail products sold in natural grocery stores across the USA and internationally. Profits are shared with their vanilla farmers and employees.

The Singing Dog Vanilla motto is "Silly Name ... Serious Vanilla."

National Initiative Vows to Close Racial Wealth Gap and Provide Ongoing Support and Resources to Black Businesses and HBCUs

CHICAGO, Ill. -- 31 Days and Beyond is a national initiative designed to bring awareness, support, and resources during a tumultuous time in America that has caused 41 percent of Black-owned businesses to close their doors due to COVID-19 compared to just 17 percent of white-owned businesses.

L. Maxwell McKissick, Marketing and Entertainment Executive as well as the Founder of the Midwest-based nonprofit, SERVE 60 - created and founded 31 Days and Beyond to serve as a catalyst and call-to-action for Americans to work together and support Black entrepreneurs, Black businesses, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

"Historically, Black Americans have long suffered from the racial wealth gap and Black businesses have been plagued even more so by a multitude of challenges and inequities on the pathway to finding success in America," stated McKissick. "It's the main reason that I felt compelled to create this campaign and initiative so that other Black entrepreneurs could receive some much-needed support via a platform that's actionable, sustainable, and designed to help close the racial wealth gap."

Nikki Woods, former Executive Producer of the nationally syndicated "Tom Joyner Morning Show" and CEO of Nikki Woods Media, LLC will serve as Brand Ambassador and an Official Spokesperson for the initiative.
