Animal Equality calls on McDonald’s to eliminate some of the worst abuses for chickens in its supply chain after its undercover filming reveals suffering.

The abuses found on Moy Park’s farms are horrific and must come to an end. We're calling on McDonald’s to stop these terrible abuses from happening within its supply chain.”

— Sharon Núñez, President of Animal Equality

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 11, 2020 / — Animal Equality, a leading international animal protection organization, today released distressing scenes of severe animal suffering on eight British chicken farms. All eight farms are operated by Moy Park, one of the UK’s largest chicken producers, which supplies fast-food chain McDonald’s. The investigation was featured as an exclusive in The Independent.

The troubling footage, captured covertly by an Animal Equality undercover investigator in 2019, reveals:

– Chickens deprived of water as drinking troughs are routinely raised to a height that they are unable to reach;
– Hundreds of chickens suffering agonizing deaths each day as workers painfully crush the chickens’ necks in their hands;
– Chickens developing raw skin burns on their feet and chests from filthy, urine-soaked floors;
– Chickens bred to grow so big, so quickly, that they suffer from excruciating leg injuries and are unable to carry the weight of their own oversized bodies;
– Chickens crammed into immensely overcrowded barns, barely able to move or stretch their wings.

Michelle Baxter Wickham, Corporate Outreach Manager at Animal Equality UK, said: “McDonald’s continues to do business with Moy Park, despite our many investigations revealing severe animal suffering under their watch. Now it appears that depriving chicks of water is business as usual at this McDonald’s supplier. McDonald’s has shown little care for animal welfare or sustainability—this tragic treatment of animals results in millions of chicks dying every year before they even reach the slaughterhouse.”

Sharon Núñez, President of Animal Equality, added: “The abuses we found on Moy Park’s farms are horrific and this unchecked cruelty must come to an end. We are calling on McDonald’s to join its competitors in signing on the Better Chicken Commitment and stop these terrible abuses from happening within its supply chain.”

Concerningly, two of the farms investigated have been the center of previous serious animal welfare complaints. In June 2019, Animal Equality filmed similarly poor conditions in Mount Farm, with chickens crammed into gigantic sheds, suffering from leg and breathing difficulties, and animals living amongst rotting carcasses. In July 2019, thousands of chickens were found to have died at Kettlethorpe Farm due to a sweltering heatwave and a lack of appropriate ventilation. When questioned about the chickens under their watch, Moy Park farm workers claimed “we care about them… we really do”.

Animal Equality is running an ongoing public awareness campaign, urging McDonald’s to sign the Better Chicken Commitment, as is fellow animal protection organization The Humane League. The Better Chicken Commitment aims to reduce the suffering of chickens used for meat by addressing the most serious welfare concerns. The six-point ask calls on companies to eliminate fast-growing breeds, high stocking densities, and often ineffective pre-slaughter stunning methods from their chicken supply chains by 2026.

Brad Pyatt looks back on successful launch of new TruWomen protein bar flavors

TruBrands boss Brad Pyatt offers a unique insight into the launch of the TruWomen brand's latest plant-based protein bar flavors.

DENVER, COLORADO, USA, August 11, 2020 / — TruBrands boss Brad Pyatt offers a unique insight into the launch of the TruWomen brand's latest plant-based protein bar flavors.

Best known for its dessert-inspired, plant-based protein bars, TruWomen's two latest flavors—Whole Lotta Macchiato and Whipped for Key Lime Pie—went down a storm upon their recent launch, timed to coincide with a major online shopping event. Launched just prior to Amazon Prime Day, Brad Pyatt of TruBrands, the firm behind TruWomen's Prime Day unveiling of its all-new flavors, looks back on the event as the news is picked up by the world's largest and most popular online trend community.

"We launched TruWomen's all-new Whipped for Key Lime Pie and Whole Lotta Macchiato flavors just in time for Amazon Prime Day," explains Brad Pyatt, speaking from his home in the Centennial State of Colorado's picturesque north-central region, dominated by the Rocky Mountains and their foothills, open plains, canyons, and the rivers that run through them.

TruWomen's Whole Lotta Macchiato and Whipped for Key Lime Pie bars were, in fact, Brad Pyatt goes on to reveal, Prime Day exclusives. "A special treat for TruWomen fans, both varieties responded specifically to customer demands," he points out. Whole Lotta Macchiato, Brad Pyatt reports, was created to combine caffeine—roughly equivalent to a cup of coffee—with the plant-based protein bar formula for which TruWomen is best known. "Whipped for Key Lime Pie, meanwhile, represents a tart and sweet treat, perfectly in line with the dessert-inspired ethos of the brand," he adds. Both bars boast 12 grams of protein and just 200 calories, according to the entrepreneur.

Brad Pyatt is the name behind the cutting-edge health and wellness company TruBrands. TruBrands, in turn, is one of the names behind TruWomen, alongside the founder of TruWomen Stephanie Pyatt. Brad Pyatt is credited with leveraging his extensive experience to help enable growth for organizations, such as TruWomen, and is celebrated as an invaluable advisor for startups and other companies looking to scale, according to his peers. He's best known, they say, for his broad range of expertise in brand and product innovation, sales growth, product development, and marketing.

News of Brad Pyatt and TruWomen's Prime Day launch of their all-new flavors was picked up by Trend Hunter – the world's largest and most popular online trend community, with over 20,000,000 monthly views. The company leverages big data, human researchers, and artificial intelligence to identify consumer insights, and, their website says, deep dive opportunities for the world's most innovative companies, such as TruBrands and TruWomen, plus Adidas, Victoria's Secret, IBM, NASA, Microsoft, and hundreds more.

Amid the launch of its new flavors, TruWomen ranked top among sweet protein bars on Trend Hunter, according to Brad Pyatt. Popular predominantly among females, the bars were best received by individuals in North America, Australia, and New Zealand, based on the trend community's report.

News of TruWomen's launch of its Whole Lotta Macchiato and Whipped for Key Lime Pie flavors featured in Trend Hunter's Hybrid Dessert Report, Confectionery Report, and Exotic Flavor Report, among several others. "It was great to see the launch so well received by our fantastic customers and Trend Hunter alike," says TruBrands boss Brad Pyatt.

Former NFL athlete turned entrepreneur Brad Pyatt is today an accomplished executive, consultant, and thought leader, bringing more than 15 years of success to the sports, food, beverage, and health and wellness industries. A proud father of two, Brad Pyatt is happily married to TruWomen founder Stephanie Pyatt. The family resides close to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, not far from TruBrands' and TruWomen's headquarters in Golden, Colorado, and Denver, Colorado, respectively.

HVAC Experts Answer the Question: Air Scrubbers Vs. Air Purifiers? Are They Worth The Money?

Local (Bucks County & Philadelphia, PA areas) HVAC company, HTR Mechanical, chime in their professional opinion between Air Scrubbers Vs. Air Purifiers.

PHILADELPHIA, PA, US, August 11, 2020 / — Air Scrubbers vs Air Purifiers

Both air scrubbers and air purifiers have the sole purpose of cleaning the air in your home or office. Having one of these devices helps clear your space of allergens, particles, and other elements you don’t want in your air. But if they both do the “same job” then what's the difference between them? Mainly, its one works much better than the other! Let's find out: Air Scrubbers vs Air Purifiers? Which is better at cleaning your home’s air?

Air Purifiers
How do Air Purifiers Work?

Air purifiers clean the air by using a filtration system. As air goes through the device the filter catches particles and cleaner air is brought back into the room. Filters will have to be periodically replaced or washed then placed back in the purifier. An air purifier can range from $100-$1,000 and the filters can be $50 or more, which is cheaper than the air scrubber. The question becomes though if it only cleans the air particles then does that mean it is missing a lot of other things in the air that you want to be cleaned too? Most likely since a lot of pollutants are not going to be caught by the filtration system! Some people use certain plants to get the same air quality, which questions how worthwhile the air purifier is. In our opinion, for an active home and to really achieve clean air quality then you’re better off taking the step up to an air scrubber.

Air Scrubbers
How do Air Scrubbers Work?

Air Scrubbers are not a stand-alone device, rather it needs to be installed into your HVAC system! This means your whole home, not just one area or one room, is getting cleaner air. It doesn’t act as just a filter, but rather destroys allergens, dust, pollen, pollution, toxins, fumes, bacteria, and even molds. Not only do air scrubbers clean the air but also aid in keeping surfaces clean too! Prices on an air scrubber vary from $500-$2000 which isn’t including installation costs. While the price is high, it is a worthy investment for improving your home’s air quality. As for maintenance, air scrubbers should be cleaned about every three months. Considering these devices are used by NASA, military submarines, and even at the Pentagon after 911, there is no doubt air scrubbers work and work incredibly well!

Are Air Scrubbers Worth the Money?

So in the debate of Air Scrubbers VS Air Purifiers, it's clear that air scrubbers are the best in drastically improving air quality. But now the question becomes, are air scrubbers worth the money? Because air scrubbers cost quite a bit more than air purifiers – it might be hard to see why getting an air scrubber installed is worth the investment.

Essentially it comes down to need. Do you have a large and busy family? Do you have lots of pets? Does your family suffer from allergies? Do you live in an area with high pollution? Is the air quality in your home poor at best? If these apply to you then an air scrubber is truly worth some consideration. If these did not apply to you then something less extensive may suit you just fine. HTR Mechanical offers more information about air scrubbers on their website for anyone who wants to know more about such an investment. A big thank you to HTR Mechanical for all this valuable insite!

Preston Evans has a colossal four-day auction event planned for Sept. 4-7 at the Big Peach Antiques Mall in Byron, Ga.

Items belonging to Preston Evans’s longtime friend Buddy Austin, recently deceased, will be sold, to include his beloved 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air and a collection of vintage motorcycles.

Coke collectibles, many of them early and in impeccable condition, will include rare and vintage coolers, posters, dispensers, clocks, vending machines, buttons, ice chests and even a bicycle.

Magnificent 19th century French barrel organ clock, circa 1884, 8 feet 6 inches tall, topped by a bronze eagle perched on an alabaster plinth, a carved fluted column containing the clock.

Jukeboxes – a category Mr. Evans knows a little something about, having collected them most of his life – will feature Wurlitzer models 1700, 1800, 2104, 1015, 800 (shown) and 1080.

Baby boomers will be treated to many of the items that defined their childhood. What boomer wouldn’t want to own a Hopalong Cassidy bicycle or other Hopalong Cassidy collectible?

Offered will be toys, Popeye collectibles, advertising, movie posters, petroliana, jukeboxes, arcade games, slots, magic memorabilia, Coca-Cola items, more.

We’ve got a trailer, bleachers and chairs in addition to the indoor room. Everyone will be able to see what we’re selling. We’ll have three people calling the sale. Part of the sale will be live-only.”

— Preston Evans

BYRON, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, August 11, 2020 / — Preston Evans of Preston Opportunities is very good at many things – like collecting and being an auctioneer – but he’s terrible at retiring. “I tried to retire,” he said from his home in South Georgia, “and it worked until I was motivated to get back in the auction ring. I found it impossible to sell all my collections in the time I spent trying to put together an event.”

That was four years ago. Since then, at least five important collections have fallen into Evans’s lap (including the estate of his longtime friend and fellow collector, Buddy Austin, recently deceased). Those items, plus Evan’s leftover inventory never before offered for sale, all add up to one thing: a major auction for all of it, planned for four days, the weekend of Sept. 4th thru 7th.

The auction will be held at the Big Peach Antiques Mall in Byron, Georgia, 12 miles south of Macon, off exit 149 of I-75, at 119 Peachtree Parkway. Start times all four days will be 10 am Eastern. Seating will be available in the lower room of the mall. The expected overflow crowd will be accommodated outdoors. Limited online bidding will be through

The auction is packed with antiques and collectibles in many categories. Offered will be toys, Western items, Popeye collectibles, advertising, movie posters, petroliana (gas station collectibles), jukeboxes, arcade games, magic memorabilia, trade stimulators, coin-ops, slot machines, Coca-Cola items, music boxes, cash registers, watches, clocks, pre-1899 guns and swords, Civil War items, scientific instruments, vintage cameras, vintage cars and motorcycles.

• A 1939 Cadillac V-16 Series 90 convertible “barn find”, one of only four made, with a divider window windshield, in storage since 1954, with 9,264 miles on the odometer.
• A 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air sport coupe hardtop, striking red, fully restored, with flawless trim and bumpers, a “Turbo-Fire” 283 engine, 3-speed floor shifter and whitewall tires.
• A 1966 Jaguar XK-E 2+2 coupe, Series I, with a beautiful sounding 4.2 liter engine with triple SU carburetors, automatic transmission, covered lens headlights and wire wheels.
• A 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan two-door coupe, a “Hot Rod Lincoln”, recently restored, with burgundy paint, Ford flathead V-8 337 ci engine (152 hp), and a streamlined body.

Other cars include a 1953 Pontiac Chieftain Deluxe Eight Custom Catalina with original paint, a 1948 Willys Jeepster, a 1950 Cadillac Series 62 sedan, a 1911 Willys-Overland Touring car, and a 1928 Packard Model 526 five-passenger sedan. The cars are being sold as-is, in varying states of condition. A few have been lovingly restored, while others are awaiting a return to their glory.

Rare and vintage motorcycles and motorbikes, all from the Buddy Austin collection, will also be sold on Saturday. They include a Harley-Davidson Hummer motorbike, a Gulf motorbike and a Cushman motorbike. Bicycles will also come up for bid. Examples include a Monarch Super Deluxe, a Schwinn Stingray, an 1892 Victor, a 1958 Eljin, a Schwinn Phantom and many others.

The Friday session, September 4th, will be open for registration at 7:30 am with a preview lasting until 10 am, when the first gavel falls. The live-only session (no Internet bidding) has been dubbed Buddy’s Barnyard Items, in honor of Mr. Austin. Items sold will include toys, Western items, advertising, Popeye collectibles, movie posters, car parts and automotive accessories.

The early Popeye items – a collection numbering in the hundreds of pieces – is a colossal horde gathered over the course of many decades by a single owner. Offered will be a Popeye arcade game, Popeye toy airplane and various other Popeye-themed toys, a Popeye “Thimble Theatre Drama Action”, a Popeye “Thimble Theatre” big book, cloth dolls, a lamp and a marionette.

The movie posters include examples from the films Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (with Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell), Butterfield 8 (with Elizabeth Taylor), Dodge City (with Errol Flynn and Olivia De Haviland), The Dawn Trail (with Buck Jones), The Fight Never Ends (with Joe Louis), The VIPs (with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor), The Good Die Young and others.

In addition to cars, motorcycles, motorbikes and bicycles, the Saturday session will also feature advertising items, more Popeye, toys, petroliana, jukeboxes, arcade games, trade stimulators, coin-ops and slot machines, Coca-Cola items, cash registers, automata, pedal cars and more.

Arcade games will feature Test Your Grip, Kicker Catcher, Rugger, 3-D Theatre, Personality Indicator, Power of Attraction, Penny Souvenir. Trade stimulators include Ball-Gum, Five-Card Draw, Free-Play, POK Reel, Vest Pocket and Horse Race Sweepstakes.

Jukeboxes – a category Mr. Evans knows a little something about, having collected them all his life – will feature Wurlitzer models 1700, 1800, 2104, 1015, 800 and 1080. Also offered will be jukeboxes from Rock-Ola, AMI and Seeburg. There’s also a Harley-Davidson-themed jukebox.

Advertising items are hugely popular because they display so beautifully in the home (or even on a house). Lots to watch include signs by Royal Vacuum, Pepsi-Cola, AAA Auto Club, Packard, Hires Root Beer, Sun-Rise Beverages, Ebert’s Ice Cream, Merita Bread, Squirt soda and many others. Also sold will be a Ray-O-Vac clock, Marvin’s Crackers box and an RCA Victor display.

Petroliana is another hot collectible, and a must-have for the man cave. Lots on offer include gas pumps for Flying A, Texaco, Shell and Polly; a Gulf Gasoline globe; and signs for Fire Chief gasoline, Sunoco Gas and Cactus Tire Boots & Patches. Old barber shop chairs will also be sold.

Vintage and antique toys will be plentiful and will feature many toy cars, trucks and horses. Lots expected to do well include an American Railroad Express Agency truck, a Looky fire truck, a Strutco truck with box, and more. A nice assortment of Dick Tracy collectibles will also be on offer, to include a police car with siren, siren police pistol and G-Man gun silent alarm pistol (all in the original box), a Dick Tracy comic and Dick Tracy poster, a toy car and a G-Man toy gun.

Automata features a group of three museum-quality figural examples from the early 1800s, with the original clothing. Two are blackamoor figures (one is playing a musical instrument, the other is smoking a pipe), while the third figure is feeding a pig. Other automata include an elephant-themed cigarette dispenser made in Berlin in 1949 and a 1930s-era Hollywood marionette figure.

Movie memorabilia will be headlined by an actual Edison projecting Kinetoscope. When Thomas Edison applied for a patent for a motion picture system over 100 years ago, it called for a camera called the Kinetograph (from the Greek for “motion recorder”) and a viewer called the Kinetoscope (from the Greek for “motion viewer”), an example of which is what’s being sold.

Other movie-related items include a stereoptical viewer and cards, a tabletop viewer, a Keystone camera, a stereopticon, floor model viewers, a Tom Mix projector with reels, and posters for the films The Miracle Rider (with cowboy star Tom Mix) and Junior Bonner (with Steve McQueen).

The Sunday, September 6th session will include spillover items from several of the abovenamed Saturday categories, but will also include magic memorabilia, music boxes and clocks. Folks will want to mark their calendars for the music and magic offerings. Both of them are important.

The music category features three rare, highly collectible offerings. They are:

• An Encore Automatic Banjo, designed and manufactured circa 1900 by the American Automatic Banjo Company (N.J.), a precursor to the jukebox and marketed mainly to businesses. It’s a rare, large and beautiful treasure: 6 feet 10 inches tall by 2 feet wide.
• A 19th century French barrel organ clock, circa 1884, magnificent in stature, 8 feet 6 inches tall, topped by a bronze eagle perched on an alabaster plinth, a carved fluted column containing the clock, the music from the small wooden flute pipes striking at 12.
• An automatic accordion playing nickelodeon known as the Maccordion, circa 1960s. A fine example and one of only a few made by G.W. MacKinnon (Charlotte, N.C.). Comes with a player piano, two playing accordions and other instruments, in a custom cabinet.

Other music-related offerings include a Theatrophone (a concert-size cylinder phonograph, precision milled, circa 1904, in a nicely crafted maple cabinet), two organ barrel Gerbruders, an Edison phonograph, a Nickelodeon Seeburg L, a pipe organ, and vintage pianos and organs.

The magic category may just be the most astounding one of all. It will be led by items specific to Houdini (his leg irons, handcuffs, and locks), a bust of Houdini, posters for his Metamorphosis show and one titled “Europe’s Eclipsing Sensation”, and various ephemera. Other magic items are related to David Copperfield (including a check he wrote to Preston Evans, framed), The Amazing Randi, Thurston, Alexander, The Great Sorcar, Carter the Great, Germain the Wizard, The Great Virgil, Kar-Mi, Ken Griffin, Dante, Goebel, Neff, Von Arx and Harry Blackstone, Sr.

Items up for bid will include Panna Lall’s gong, a Harry Blackstone, Sr. vanishing clock, Virgil and Julie’s handkerchief gun, V Roy’s fan, Burgeon’s wand, a pair of Carl Davis golden shears, the Whispering Queen card trick, another card trick prop, and a magic pouch of vanishing items.

The watches category will feature British pocket watches dating as far back as the 1700s, some with repousse cases. Other lots include a Breguet repeater pocket watch with gold chain that strikes on the hour with a sound; and a 1947 wristwatch engraved with the name of a Packard employee for his long tenure with the car company, also engraved with an image of a Packard.

The selection of pre-1900 weapons is far too lengthy to list individually, but bidders should know that they are slated to be auctioned off Monday, September 7th. “We may also auction some as time permits on Saturday as well,” Mr. Evans said. The weapons category includes guns and relics that date as far back as 1400, antique guns and swords (all pre-1899), flintlock pistols and rifles, and hard-to-find Civil War items (to include items from the Gettysburg, Pa. vicinity).

“We’ve filled the building with merchandise, now we’ve got to figure out where to put the people,” Evans said with a chuckle. “We’ve got a trailer, bleachers and chairs, in addition to the indoor room. Everyone will be able to see what we’re selling. We’ll have three people calling the action. Part of the sale will be live-only, like the entire Friday session of Buddy Austin items.”

A brochure costing $20 shows many of the items described here and serves as a ticket to enter the auction display area, all four days. $50 per person includes a brochure and seat (if available). A $100 option includes a brochure and guaranteed indoor reserved seat. $50 and $100 options will apply toward a purchase. The purchase of a brochure is not required for outside attendance.

Urban South Brewery Donates Hand Sanitizer to More Than 150 Public Schools in Louisiana

Craft brewery provides every public school teacher in Orleans and Jefferson Parish with a bottle of hand sanitizer

NOLA-PS thanks Urban South for their generous donation of 3,600 hand sanitizers for our teachers.”

— Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr., NOLA Public Schools Superintendent

NEW ORLEANS, LA, USA, August 11, 2020 / — Urban South Brewery, New Orleans’ largest craft brewery, recently donated a bottle of hand sanitizer to every public school teacher in Orleans and Jefferson Parish in Louisiana. The brewery began producing hand sanitizer during citywide bar and restaurant shutdowns due to the pandemic, and has donated a portion of its remaining supply to more than 150 public schools in NOLA Public Schools District and Jefferson Parish Schools District. Though students won’t be returning to the classroom this month, teachers and other staff members are back finalizing plans for distance learning.

“Throughout these challenging and unprecedented times, Urban South has worked hard to contribute to our community in any way possible,” said Jacob Landry, Founder of Urban South Brewery. “We are proud to support the public school districts in our area and promote the health and safety of the teachers and staff who are working tirelessly preparing for schools to reopen and students to return.”

Beginning in April, Urban South Brewery began producing hand sanitizer after winning a bid for the State of Louisiana Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. The brewery saw an opportunity to keep its team employed and working, using its capabilities to instead bottle hand sanitizer amid a nationwide shortage. In addition to the 50,000 bottles of hand sanitizer for the State of Louisiana, Urban South received orders for more than 70,000 bottles of hand sanitizer from local hospitals, grocery stores, nursing homes and other small businesses. The brewery has also been offering a variety of hand sanitizer options available for purchase through its online store.

“NOLA-PS thanks Urban South for their generous donation of 3,600 hand sanitizers for our teachers,” said NOLA Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr. “These hand sanitizers were distributed to each of our schools, along with other vital district-purchased PPE supplies. Urban South’s donation contributes greatly to the District’s efforts to keep schools safe. On behalf of the District, thank you!”

McClain Bros. LLC, Bucks County and Philadelphia local emergency plumbing company, tells the public how to prevent plumbing emergencies in their latest blog.

PHILADELPHIA, PA, US, August 11, 2020 / — No one ever wants to face an emergency situation and while not always predictable, some emergencies can be prevented. When it comes to plumbing there are somethings you can do to prevent having to call a plumber for emergency plumbing services! If you do need to call someone then McClain Bros. wants the local Bucks County and Philadelphia areas to know that they are here to help with all emergency plumbing needs 24/7! So, before they discussed how to prevent plumbing emergencies, they first went over what is considered a plumbing emergency.

A true problem that will need emergency plumbing services will typically cause water damage or deny your home of water. It’ll be clear when these situations become emergencies and there is no time to wait. If you are unsure or the issue isn’t urgent then you better call for advice or a non-emergency plumbing service instead. So what events are considered an emergency? Emergency plumbing situations include a risk of flooding, a backed-up sewer, being without water, and the risk of a pipe burst. They wrote more about what problems need an emergency plumber in another article also found on their website. So now that it is know was is an emergency, how does one go about preventing them?

Preventing emergency plumbing calls means providing regular maintenance to your plumbing system and avoiding certain actions that tend to cause major problems. McClain Bros. wrote more about preventing clogged drains in another article also available on their website! These simple things go a long way to avoiding issues from occurring in the first place. Save yourself from the stress and sudden expenses by taking these actions to prevent plumbing emergencies!

1. Don't pour fats, oils or grease down any drains because they cause nasty clogs
2. Don't use "flushable" wipes because most don't degrade quickly enough
3. Don't hang anything on exposed pipes! The extra weight can cause them to break!
4. Don't use drop-in toilet bowl cleaners because they are made of corrosives that can damage pipes
5. Replace rubber washing machine hoses with stainless steel for a more reliable hose
6. Be careful what you'll put in the garbage disposal, not everything belongs in there!
7. Its good to know exactly where your water shut-off valve for just in case
8. Avoid harsh chemicals when cleaning your drains since they will eat through pipes over time
9. Draining your water tank annually will remove sediment and prevent rusting

As an extra tip, McClain Bros. also offered advice on keeping your drains clean! Keeping your drains and pipes properly cleaned will go a long way in preventing plumbing emergencies in the future! They wanted to make sure alternatives where offered since their advice stated to not use certain products like drop-in toilet cleaners and harsh chemicals.

1. Run hot water through the sink after use. Think of it like taking a drink to help wash down your dinner! Hot water helps prevent things like soap and sticky substances from hardening, thus sticking around to clog your sink up.
2. Minerals from water can react with substances such as grease and soap. It also likes to build-up and causes problems. By having a water softener installed can help prevent minerals from being a problem in your water! Be sure to speak to a professional about getting a water softener installed in your home.
3. A simple DIY cleaning method is to run baking soda and hot water down the drain. Alternatively, pouring some vinegar and running hot water after 30 minutes works too. Baking soda and vinegar are classic yet effective cleaning tools. Afterward adding some lemon juice will keep your sink or bathroom smelling nice!

Sometimes emergencies can't be predicted or prevented, but in the case of plumbing, there is a lot you can do to avoid having to call for emergency plumbing services. If you do need emergency or non-emergency plumbing service and are from the Bucks County, Philadelphia areas then know you can always call McClain Bros. LLC 24/7!

Doctor develops personalized solution to COVID-19 threat

DEFENDER tech is located under the bill of the cap or visor.

Electronics designer developing shield for airborne pathogens

Wearing the device could be a game-changer in how society moves forward and recovers from the pandemic, enabling wearers to again visit crowded, enclosed areas and avoid contracting the virus.”

— Capt. Kenny

DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA, US, August 11, 2020 / — Doctor Develops Personalized Solution to COVID-19 Threat
The DEFENDER is More Effective than an N95 Face Mask

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – A new way to battle COVID-19 is on the horizon — and it will come in the form of a non-evasive hat or visor designed for comfort and more effective than an N95 mask in preventing the spread of Coronavirus.

A face mask is not designed to protect the wearer. It is designed to protect others. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states, “The mask is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.”

Medical experts say the virus can be contracted through the eyes – just as through the mouth or nose. When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, virus particles spray from their mouth or nose onto the face of others in proximity.

“These droplets are most likely to be inhaled through your nose or mouth, but they can also enter the body through the eyes,” said Viral Juthani, M.D., assistant professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City.

The DEFENDER, a collaborative brainchild of Dr. N. Chandra Sekhar and Captain Kenny LLC, and supported by the Arrow Electronics Certification Program, provides a personal non-evasive energy shield that sanitizes airborne pathogens before they enter the human body. The technology is housed under the bill of the cap or visor.

Sekhar received his doctorate in electronics and embedded systems and has worked in electronics design and development for more than 15 years.
“The DEFENDER’s technology is based on currently applied physics,” said Capt. Kenny. “Studies at both Columbia University and Penn State University that pre-date COVID-19 and recent research articles published in the National Library of Medicine and the Center for Radiological Research, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, have taken on new relevance since the outbreak of the current pandemic.”

Wearing the device could be a game-changer in how society moves forward and recovers from the pandemic, enabling wearers to again visit crowded, enclosed areas and avoid contracting the virus.

“People will now have more freedom to visit enclosed public places like restaurants, elevators, airplanes, offices, shops, and schools, knowing that they have a much greater measure of protection,” he added.

The DEFENDER energy shield cap and/or visor will be available to the public in December and distributed by – a Daytona Beach, Florida company.

About 8619 was founded to further develop and study existing technology and science relating to airborne pathogens. CAPTAIN KENNY LLC, a Daytona Beach, FL based company, has been designing and marketing wearable fitness and health devices since 2016. Visit for more information. Visitors can also register for updates.

The DEFENDER & Arrow Electronics
Captain Kenny LLC is connected to electronics designer N. Chandra Sekhar, Ph.D. from the ArrowPlus on-demand engineering platform to help support this product development. The company is also working with Arrow Electronics, a Fortune 500 company headquartered in Centennial, Colorado, through their project’s acceptance in the Arrow Certification Program. As part of the program, this project has achieved Arrow Certified Technology, indicating that an engineer from Arrow has deemed the DEFENDER design feasible for manufacturing.
