Cincinnati Company Develops Ground-Breaking Steam Technology for Sanitizing Amid Pandemic

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Bayzi Corporation has developed steam technology needed to quickly fight the spread of viruses like COVID-19 as well as bacteria, fungi, bed bugs and biofilms. They manufacture antimicrobial steam devices that will very quickly eliminate microbes, bugs and also provide a quick way to clean dust and grease. The machines use just water and no chemicals.

The patented line of antimicrobial steam cleaners called SaniZap® safely sanitize almost any surface, leaving no residue, moisture or harmful chemicals. The process is 600 times faster than chemical sanitization, making it ideal for following CDC guidelines that call for frequent sanitization.

"There was so much interest in portable high temperature steam devices due to the pandemic that our team pulled these products from the backburner and has been working hard to make this technology and the products available quickly," said Anu Vissa, CEO of Bayzi.

The portable equipment is available in different models to accommodate a range of facilities and price points. SaniZap-1 and SaniZap-Mini are handheld devices well suited for small spaces and small businesses. The SaniZap-4 is a versatile multipurpose cleaning workhorse on wheels with a lot more power. It can be used at lower steam temperatures with soap or detergent to quickly clean visible dirt and grime and can also be used at higher steam temperatures for anti-microbial sanitizing.

The protypes have been demonstrated in schools, hospitals, and restaurants.

* Chemicals generally reduce or eliminate specific microbes. Steam covers a broad range.

* No fumes, odors, sticky residues, or accumulating residues and toxicity.

* 'No-Contact' method, is self-drying and requires no wiping, reducing waste.

* Reduces cross contamination.

* Allows Increase frequency of sanitizing as recommended by CDC, especially of critical areas.

* Benefits employees, staff and patients/clients, reducing their exposure to chemicals.

* Overall better infection control outcomes for healthcare facilities.

* Green method - safe for the environment.

Savings. SaniZap® can be worked into any sanitizing regimen as addition or replacement to an existing cleaning rotation. Savings include no additional chemicals or towels to purchase, no 'wiping-down' labor, reduced waste, and increased productivity as there is no need to 'wait-out' chemical application.

Kids Read Now celebrates partnerships with hometown heroes, delivering books to Ohio students

DAYTON, Ohio -- Kids Read Now has partnered with school districts across Ohio, including Ansonia Local Schools, Troy City Schools, Mapleton Local School District, Greenville City Schools, and Northridge Local Schools, to mail books directly to their students' homes over the summer. The number of students in the Kids Read Now program continues to grow with almost 400,000 books being mailed to students in 2020 alone!

Most students will experience reading skill loss over a typical summer break from school. Creating home libraries is key to preventing a steep learning slide due to summer break and recent extended school closures. "Whether it's the summer slide or the COVID slide, the KRN in-home reading programs are eliminating learning loss and are helping kids gain up to 2.5 months of learning over the summer," said Leib Lurie, CEO of Kids Read Now.

"The kids love getting the books throughout the summer and come in the following school year talking about all the awesome books that they got. I can tell it definitely encourages the kids to read," said Taylor B., Classroom Teacher, Troy City Schools.

"Providing students with high quality texts to read during the summer is absolutely crucial. An added bonus is that students get 'real' mail!" said Jill H. B., Curriculum Director, Black River Local School District.

The Kids Read Now K-3 summer reading program mails eight new books to students and includes exciting multicultural, fiction, and nonfiction titles loved by children. Mailing books builds ongoing enthusiasm but does not require in-home technology. Each book includes guided discussion questions to help improve reading skills and increase family engagement. The ninth book of beautifully illustrated creative writing prompts concludes the program so children can write their own stories. Best of all, kids keep their new books!

Kids Read Now is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the singular mission to eliminate learning loss for all K-3 students.

Fortin Ironworks Reflects on 75 Years Serving Central Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- For most the American Dream begins with an idea. For Fortin Ironworks, that idea began with a truck, a small shed and a man with a passion for welding. Today, 75 years later, it's reflecting on that humble beginning.

The founders, Joe and Josephine Fortin, a 22-year-old Italian American couple, were initially introduced as friendly pen pals during World War II when Joe was stationed in Iran for the U.S. Army. After two years of correspondence, they found more than friendship. Without ever meeting, they engaged, somehow knowing that their love could grow to last a lifetime.

Shortly after their August wedding in 1945, World War II ended. Joe was honorably discharged and the couple's long-distance relationship turned into a love-filled life together.

Jobs were difficult to find after the war, so Joe took matters into his own hands, quite literally. A former welding student of the Columbus Trade School at Fort Hayes in Central Ohio, a welder for the Pennsylvania Railroad and the U.S. Army, Joe was incredibly handy to have around and started doing on-site, portable welding repairs and small metal fabrication jobs.

What started out as a small repair shop run out of his truck and a backyard shed, grew into a thriving business. In 1946, this backyard operation officially became Fortin Welding, now known as Fortin Ironworks. Today, it's a successful, multimillion-dollar company with a modern factory complex on nearly four acres. In fact, the building and its showroom are now local landmarks.

The Fortin Ironworks showroom is a known "destination location" for locals and out of town travelers, alike. Its products can also be found at the Market at Fortin Ironworks, home to the creations of various local artists, eclectic home furnishings and a unique event space available to rent for small gatherings.

Over the years, the business has seen many changes and, most recently, the addition of a high-tech laser machine has allowed it to grow even more and to accommodate unlimited ideas.

Although Joe passed away in 2009, Josephine, now 99, continues to enjoy talking business, gardening, and of course, her many grandchildren who now manage the business. For more information, contact Bob Fortin at: 614-291-4342 ext. 200 or visit:

About Fortin Ironworks

Fortin Ironworks designs, manufactures and offers local installation of most commercial and residential ironwork needs. It's known for offering the very finest custom metalwork and for tackling all jobs, large or small. It specializes in step rails, fencing, gates, table bases, curtain rods, repairs, and of course, custom metal fabrications. Its staff of 40 is comprised of highly-skilled craftsmen, artisans, estimators, salesmen and installers. The products are manufactured in its 56,000 square-foot facility. The company has multiple accounts with well-known national brands and also ships internationally.

‘Can’t Look Away: Photographs of the Civil Rights Struggle’ New Docuseries Released by the Gund Gallery to Celebrate Black History Month

GAMBIER, Ohio -- The Gund Gallery at Kenyon College is pleased to announce the release of the first episode in the new docuseries "Can't Look Away: Photographs of the Civil Rights Struggle."

"Can't Look Away" seeks to reveal connections between the Black Lives Matter movements and the Civil Rights struggles of the 1950s and 60s through conversations centered on select photographs depicting the Civil Rights Era.

Developed as a way for the Gallery to inspire our community to critically engage with some of the most pressing issues we face today, each episode will feature experts from across Kenyon College discussing photographs made available for the program by Gund Gallery supporters David Horvitz '74 and Francie Bishop Good.

These images demand our attention and compel us to think deeply about the legacy of racism in the United States, leading us to explore how history can inform the ways we respond collectively to the legacy of unresolved racial strife that continues in our time.

The series begins with a wide-ranging dialog on Burt Glinn's Little Rock, Arkansas, 1957 that touches on subjects from the powers of the US Supreme Court, to the racial politics of the Cold War, and the influence of press coverage on the success of protest movements.

Discussants in the series include Glenn McNair, Professor of History; Francis Gourrier, Assistant Professor of American Studies and History; Austin Porter, Assistant Professor of Art History and American Studies; and Jodi Kovach, Curator of Academic Programs at the Gund Gallery.

"We had originally planned to release the first episode of this series at the beginning of February, in celebration of Black History Month," says J. Christopher Fahlman '72, director of operations and visitor experience at the Gund Gallery and project manager for the series. "COVID-19 concerns presented a number of challenges to our production, but with all the participants' cooperation, we were able to responsibly and safely realize this project with only a modest delay."

"It was important to all those working on 'Can't Look Away' that we make a contribution honoring African Americans and people of color who enrich our country in innumerable ways and are so often met with violent racism in their daily lives," adds Caroline Culbert, director of communication and engagement at the Gund Gallery. "By fully leveraging our expertise exploring the discursive nature of contemporary art, and making the resulting works available online for free, we hope to further the conversation around racial justice in our community and encourage others to engage in the tough conversations that drive structural change."

We would like to extend a special thanks to our discussants, all our campus collaborators at Kenyon College, and our partners at Kokosing River Productions.

Funding for this video series was generously provided by David Horvitz '72 and Francie Bishop Good.

Olive Hill Kentucky: How One Small Appalachian Town Helped Build America

MANSFIELD, Ohio -- Author Willie Davis has written a historical fiction novel, "Olive Hill" (ISBN 978-1728369372; Volume 1) about how one small Appalachian town in Kentucky can lay claim to helping build America.

"Olive Hill, Kentucky has a surprising creation story," says author Willie Davis. "Hundreds of thousands of Kentucky's sons and daughters migrated to the industrial north in the 1940's and 50s without realizing how their past had helped build America. My family was among them. I became determined to tell Olive Hill's storied past."

"Olive Hill" is written in two volumes. It follows the fictitious Reed family from May, 1800 to June, 1959. The two volumes integrate 339 fictional characters into 159 years of American history to tell how Olive Hill gave all that it had in a time it was most needed until a time it was needed no more.

Carter County, Kentucky was blessed with an abundance of diverse natural resources, including timber, iron ore, coal, and limestone. During the Industrial Revolution one of its towns, Olive Hill, became the center of a 600 square mile hotbed of fireclay, a unique heat-resistant clay used to make firebricks. For decades, thousands of hard-working Olive Hillians dug, moulded, and fired that uncommon clay into hundreds of thousands of firebricks per day to line open hearth steel furnaces, locomotive fireboxes, and steamship boilers.

Without the steel, there would be no skyscrapers and no rail lines. Without the trains and ships, there would be no movement to expedite a growing nation. Olive Hill firebricks helped make this possible.

Davis dedicates the novel to anyone interested in Olive Hill, Kentucky - yesterday, today, or tomorrow.

"More people need to know the Olive Hill story," continues Davis. "And more people need to know more American history."

For further information and autographed copies contact Willie Davis at or visit his website at:

Books are available online everywhere.

New Book Helps People to Deal with Loss During the Pandemic

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- When Gina Marie Mordecki's daughter was raped and murdered, she prayed that her death would not be in vain. Her new book, "God's Amazing Intimacy in Grief" (ISBN: 979-8578563751), is the answer to that prayer. Mordecki's book is written to help heal the hearts of others who have experienced the tragic loss of a loved one.

"Right now, we're living through a terrible pandemic and people are dying," Mordecki said. "People are dying alone and their loved ones are left behind to cope with a reality of inconsolable sadness. I want this book to offer some comfort and perhaps, even provide some answers."

After Mordecki's daughter was murdered, people didn't know what to say.

"It's one thing to say, 'I'm sorry for your loss,' but it's quite another to live in a house with an empty place setting at the dinner table," she says. "And, for people suffering loss during the pandemic, the suffering is only compounded through quarantining and "stay-at-home" orders."

"God's Amazing Intimacy in Grief" is a short read, less than an hour, that serves to minister to people while they grieve. It asks and answers important questions such as "Why now?" and helps people to understand and resolve their anger with God. It shares stories of others who have lost children and details how they found their way out of the darkness.

Mordecki's personal account of her tragic loss shares personal experiences of how God tried to prepare her for the loss and then helped her to deal with the inevitable outcome. The book also references specific scripture and offers interpretation.

"God's Amazing Intimacy in Grief" is available on Amazon for 0.99 as an eBook and $5.99 in paperback format.

For more information:

Gund Gallery Presents ‘The Art of Trees,’ an Exhibition Inviting New Dialogue about Our Relationship to Our Environment

GAMBIER, Ohio -- The Gund Gallery at Kenyon College is pleased to announce "The Art of Trees," an exhibition on view at the Gund from January 22 - April 11, 2021.

"The Art of Trees" reveals the many resonances, forms, and relationships of trees. Exploring themes of restoration and destruction, community and isolation, location and identity, and fragile temporalities, the 14 artists featured in the exhibition experiment with a range of mediums from painting to digital video, and even use trees as creative collaborators to express our essential and inseparable bond with these guardians of the earth.

"The Art of Trees" invites an interdisciplinary dialogue about personal, local, and global relationships to the environment, while simultaneously drawing attention to interactions between trees themselves, the communities they form, and their resilience despite human interference.

"The sense of community that trees uniquely inspire came to life through the collaborative curatorial endeavor of Gund Associates, Gallery and College staff, and Kenyon faculty," says Dr. Jodi Kovach, curator of academic programs at the Gund Gallery and an important participant in the development of the exhibition. She continues, "By leveraging one another's experiences with nature, modes of aesthetic appreciation, and perspectives on the environmental crisis, they have realized an exhibition that shows us how art can transform our ways of living with and in the natural world."

The participating Gund Associates add, "We hope that this exhibition provokes discussion about the environment and invites a heightened collective consciousness about the intersection of community and place, near and far."

In addition, the Gund Gallery is pleased to present "Nearby Voices." This special section of "The Art of Trees" exhibition offers artistic reflections on the local landscape as a shared point of witness and imagines trees as archives of commonly held stories and experiences that branch across generations of a community. "Nearby Voices" bridges the gap between global and local environmental concerns by engaging with the art and voices of community members. It will also include the work of 2020-21 artist-in-residence Brian Harnetty, an interdisciplinary, socially and environmentally engaged artist who is working collaboratively with community members to create a "sonic map" of Gambier and surrounding Knox County.

"The Art of Trees" is curated by a committee of Gund Associates, Kenyon faculty, and Gund Gallery staff who worked together in a collaborative, multi-year process to bring this project to life.

SV Diagnostic Lab Expands COVID-19 Testing Drive-Thru Sites in Ohio to Include Toledo and Akron Areas

DAYTON, Ohio -- SV Diagnostic Lab LLC, one of Ohio's leading diagnostic testing laboratories, has recently expanded its widespread COVID-19 testing beyond only high-priority individuals presenting with symptoms of the novel coronavirus, but also to now provide much-needed increased testing capacity to local physician offices, holiday travelers, nursing homes, area hospitals, municipalities and employers affected by the pandemic.

The laboratory also offers a self-pay option for expedited results. The laboratory has over 20 sites in the Columbus region but have expanded to include sites where the greatest needs are in the northeast.

For a list of all locations visit:

SV Diagnostics has developed a unique "Mouth Wash" product whereby patients "swish and spit" into a collection tube, replacing the Nasopharyngeal swabs typically associated with COVID testing if patients so choose. The process is carried out with a proprietary software that allows for self-check-in and no long wait times for testing (CovidDrive).

"Nasopharyngeal swabs are time consuming, have a high false negative rate due to improper collection and are painful and off-putting," said Dr. Phillip Gibbs, PhD the Chief Science officer and biochemist at SV Diagnostic Lab, who developed the patent-pending "Quiksal" collection method. "Patients on metformin and other medications typically have dry mouth and cannot produce enough saliva for a purely saliva-based test either."

Gibbs Continued: "Additionally, the viscosity of Saliva proposes several challenges in scaling at the lab level, cross contamination on robotics platforms and inconsistencies are high. The Oral Rinse solves all these issues. Our studies have shown the Oral Rinse to be a more effective indicator of infection due to ease of use and detecting a true infection, not just viral fragments in a nasal swab which are keeping people quarantined for much longer than they are truly infectious."

Greg Ingle, CEO said, "As the country and our own community continues to deal with the impact of this public health crisis, SV Diagnostic lab feels deeply fortunate to have the expertise and capacity to do our part in providing vital COVID-19 testing. We know it's critical that individuals experiencing symptoms or those returning to work have immediate access to testing for peace of mind and to protect our communities."

Over the past several months, SV has already been supporting testing efforts for local police departments and at area urgent cares and hospital systems across the state for patients experiencing coronavirus symptoms. Now, testing is also available to anyone that needs a test. It is as simple as sending a text message.

Anyone that needs a test can either call or text 614-819-3424 and complete the intake process and go to the drive through site. The results will be delivered in 24 to 48 hours via a text message directly to the persons mobile phone using secure messaging.

SV offers Ohio residents access to a variety of telehealth providers (if needed), scheduling of testing via its online scheduling app (CovidDrive), providing physician offices, hospitals, employers, nursing homes or municipalities with testing collection kits, as well as offering a wide variety of custom-solutions to meet specific testing needs.

About SV Diagnostic Lab:

Founded in 2017, SV Diagnostic Lab is one of the leading genomic laboratories in the Midwest. Headquartered in a 36,000 sq. ft. state of the art Facility in Dayton, Ohio, SV Diagnostic lab has grown to employ 100 people throughout Ohio, is certified by CLIA and COLA and works with national and global partners such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Shimadzu, Tecan, Eppendorf and others.
