To commemorate the Big Game this Sunday, BOC Ventures—manufacturers of the Necky—are hosting a football trivia contest

PRLog (Press Release) – Feb 01, 2012 –
In celebration of the biggest sports day of the year this Sunday, BOC Ventures—manufacturers of the unique and innovative Necky—are hosting a football trivia contest through Facebook and Twitter, with the prize being an autographed Brandon Jacobs rookie card.

The trivia contest will begin on Thursday, February 2, and end Sunday, February 5, 2012 upon the conclusion of the Big Game.

“This is an exciting week for football fans, especially New York Giants and New England Patriot fans, so we wanted to get all of Necky fans buzzing about the game this Sunday,” said Paul Boccardi of BOC Ventures.  “Beginning tomorrow, football trivia questions will be asked throughout the day on Facebook and Twitter.  Whoever is the first person to answer correctly gets 1 point.  Also, there will be one Bonus question worth 3 points asked once a day.  At the end of the game Sunday, whoever has accumulated the most points throughout the week will win an autographed Brandon Jacobs rookie card.”

BOC Ventures launched the Necky this past year.  “The Necky is the most practical and efficient piece of neckwear you can buy to protect yourself from the cold this winter; it’s
perfect for tailgating or watching any outdoor event,” said Paul Boccardi, of BOC Ventures.

“It is the most versatile scarf you can own in that it is not only warm and compact so you can store it in your pocket or purse when not in use, but it also has a storage pocket perfect for carrying your keys, ski lift pass, phone music player or any other handheld accessory.  You can even lift the Necky up to protect your face on those windy days.”

Made from the highest quality fleece, the Necky Scarf’s patented design provides warmth and protection to your chest and neck from the elements without the excess weight and bulk of traditional scarves.  The Necky is adjustable and fastens behind the neck making it easy to put on and take off.  And in terms of convenience, the Necky has a pocket for accessories and can fold small enough to fit in your coat pocket.

“Good luck to everybody and we hope you have fun with the contest,” said Boccardi.  “The winner will be announced on Facebook and Twitter Monday, February 6 at 11 a.m.”

Available in an assortment of colors, the Necky Scarf comes in two adjustable sizes for both kids and adults.  And in addition to its practicality as a weather garment, the Necky can also be worn as a turtleneck or mock turtleneck under any jacket or shirt.

“The Necky Scarf is perfect for everyone….casual users, sports enthusiasts, commuters, skiers, joggers, outdoor workers, business professionals, late season golfers…and don’t forget about the kids” said Mr. Boccardi.  “Parents will have peace of mind knowing that their children can dress themselves warmly without their help.  It is also comforting to know that the Necky is safe as it, will not tighten around the neck if pulled, unlike traditional knotted scarves.”

PRLog (Press Release) – Jan 18, 2012 –
New York, NY  – The postmark application deadline for the National Book Foundation’s fourth Innovations in Reading Prize is February 21, 2012.

In support of its effort to promote literature to diverse audiences, the National Book Foundation seeks applications from individuals and institutions that demonstrate a similar commitment. The most important criteria for selecting winners are creativity, risk-taking, and a visionary quality, as well as a novel way of presenting books and literature. The Prize is less focused on the promotion of basic literacy and the pedagogy of reading than on the promotion of literary reading.

Applications for the Innovations in Reading Prize are available for completion online.

Winners will also receive an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City to attend a special luncheon at the Ford Foundation, where they will present their work to funders and other people in the field, as well as the National Book Awards Ceremony and Benefit Dinner at Cipriani Wall Street.

Over the course of three years, the Foundation has received over 400 applications from all across the country. Innovations in Reading Prize winners have included a teacher in Santa Fe, New Mexico; a Sunday School teacher who started a library for the community at the Mount Olive Baptist Church in rural Hopkins, South Carolina;  ReadKiddoRead, an online resource created by best-selling author James Patterson and literary consultant Judy Freeman that helps parents, teachers, and librarians identify books for kids; Burton Freeman, a retired attorney, whose My Own Book program helps inner-city New York students build their own private libraries;  the Maricopa County Library District in Arizona, which dropped the Dewey Decimal System and replaced it with a more user-friendly system; Electric Literature/Electric Publisher,  an upstart publishing company and literary journal out of Brooklyn, New York that uses new media and innovative distribution methods to keep storytelling a vital force in popular culture; and the Young Adult Review Network (YARN), an online journal based in Weston, Massachusetts that showcases work by teen writers alongside that of established authors to elevate the YA genre.

Innovations in Reading is supported by a generous grant from Levenger.

In addition, E.lifeMonitor offers brands access to a group of trained analysts who are social media specialists. These analysts provide market intelligence reports based on a proven method,’s own customized tools, and their own experience and knowledge.

It takes an enormous amount of time to debug the data, correctly analyze and interpret the data, and create valuable summary reports for marketing directors and brand managers who want to decide their future social media strategy.” points out Vitorino.

“Our competitors are wholly-focused on the tools. Without a human behind them, tools do not offer true market intelligence. We offer e.lifeMonitor for free for iPad because what really matters is the service.  Software and data without intelligent analysis have no positive effect on a company’s social media strategy, and might even end up taking them in the wrong direction,” added Jairson Vitorino.
