International Stars Sleep on Magniflex Mattresses

Sleep and sports team up to provide ultimate relaxation before the big game.

Miami, FL, October 17, 2019 --( Sports, just like sleep, is a borderless passion, not only in Italy but also in some of the 99 countries Magniflex holds a presence in. Magniflex has a long-standing tradition of supporting talented athletes across the world, starting with a historical sponsorship in the world of cycling to sponsoring Japanese athletes, such as Nori Aoki, who participate in everything from traditional sports to martial arts. Magniflex has also proudly supported the Italian national football team and uses Gigi Buffon, the retired team captain and goalkeeper, as the official spokesperson.

Most recently, Magniflex has signed a new sponsorship agreement with the Italian National Rugby Team, captained by Sergio Parisse. This partnership allowed Magniflex to be the exclusive supplier of branded mattresses and accessories to the Hotel Sonntag in Sugadaira for the Rugby World Cup 2019. The moments of rest and relaxation were guaranteed by the very best mattresses Magniflex has to offer.

The decades-long passion for sports has been a great inspiration to Magniflex when developing a best-selling technology like the Magnistretch.

Bike-Friendly New Zealand Getting Easier with Bike Barn

Bike-Friendly New Zealand Getting Easier with Bike Barn
Auckland, New Zealand, October 15, 2019 --( Cycling is a fantastic mode of transport, because it helps you to get active while also encouraging environmentally friendly practices. Having a bike to get around on is a part of living in New Zealand; after all, what’s the point of living in a beautiful country if you can’t enjoy the great outdoors? One of the companies encouraging people to start biking is New Zealand’s Bike Barn, which is partnering with a number of organisations to get Kiwis in the saddle.

The “Bike it Forward” campaign was created by Bike Barn to help kids and adults alike get access to a reliable bicycle. People around New Zealand are encouraged to give their old bicycles into Bike Barn, which are then restored and donated to organisations that need them.

One such organisation is Whakarewarewa School in Rotorua. Bike Barn donated seven bicycles to the kids in this school, fully re-modelled and ready-to-use, to help the kids develop their motor skills and discipline. They plan to continue this plan going forward, stating, “We’re delighted to be able to provide support for the children at Whakarewarewa School and welcome further donations from the Rotorua community.”

Their community efforts are not exclusive to Rotorua. Bike Barn has also joined Bike Auckland’s bike shop partnership program to make owning a bike easier for Auckland residents. Anyone with a valid Bike Auckland membership card need only present it in-store for discounts up to 25% on bikes, accessories and bike services. They cite their reasoning thus: “we want to help get the message out and encourage more people to ride.”

Lastly, they have partnered with AA Insurance to give AA Members a number of discounts on their products. Presenting your AA Membership card in store will fetch you a ten percent discount on all bike purchases, and a twenty percent discount on services and accessory purchases. Kiwis can also enjoy a free Bronze-level bike service every year, so they can be sure their bikes are in perfect working order.

International Professional Squash Tournament in Tring Sponsored by Waste King

Tring, United Kingdom, October 05, 2019 --( Waste King, the environmentally friendly waste collection and recycling services specialist, has become one of the sponsors of the 2019/20 PSA World Tour, the international squash circuit organised by the Professional Squash Association (PSA).

This month, the PSA World Tour tournament comes to Tring Squash Club, in Hertfordshire – close to Waste King’s headquarters. The winner of the tournament – which runs from 15 to 19 October and is known as the Arnold Homes Tring Open - will receive some £25,000.

Last year’s Arnold Homes Tring Open saw an all-Welsh final, with Caerphilly’s Peter Creed losing to the 2018 Commonwealth Games semi-finalist, Joel Makin. While Makin is absent this year, Creed – seeded 6 – is back. The top seed at Tring this year is England’s Daryl Selby.

Glenn Currie, Waste King’s Managing Director, commented, "As a keen squash player, I’m excited that some of the world’s best professional players will be returning to Tring as part of the PSA World Tour – and I’m delighted that Waste King can help make that happen."

“Much as I’d have liked to have been playing in the tournament, my primary focus for the last 12 years has been helping to provide a friendly, efficient, cost-effective waste collections, clearance and recycling service which is environmentally friendly,” he added. “Unlike the PSA World Tour, Waste King’s activities may not – yet – span the world but we now operate throughout the UK, working with commercial and domestic customers.

“So, while some of the world’s elite squash players will be playing hard at the tournament in Tring, Waste King will be working hard to clear waste around the country and make it a more environmentally friendly place.”

Rhode Island Maritime Law Firm to Offer Free Wake-Hazard Education Seminar

Rhode Island Maritime Law Firm to Offer Free Wake-Hazard Education Seminar
Newport, RI, October 03, 2019 --( The legal team at Fulweiler llc (, a Rhode Island maritime law firm representing injured workers and passengers on the East and Gulf Coasts, has announced its intention to hold a free seminar on the hazards presented by vessel wakes and waves.

This spring seminar will be timed to open the 2020 Narragansett Bay boating season by bringing awareness to the dangers associated with vessels hitting wakes and waves while underway. Dangerous vessel wakes and sea conditions are blamed for countless injuries and Fulweiler llc believes many boaters fail to appreciate the deadly combination of speed, planing boat hulls and an impact with a wake or wave.

Each year, thousands of people get hurt on vessels. With recreational vessels traveling at faster speeds and with more people recreating on Narragansett Bay, Fulweiler llc says it is critical to try and make a difference by focusing the attention of vessel operators and passengers on the dangers of vessel wakes.

"Boat wakes and even your typical waves are hurting people," says admiralty lawyer John K. Fulweiler. "I wrote about the topic a few months ago for a boating magazine because it's an issue that I'm seeing more and more. We see injured passengers in our offices and I read about boating accidents involving vessel wakes and waves. If we can underscore the importance of this topic to boat owners, we think it'll make a difference. They need to understand their legal responsibility in such situations and appreciate some tactics for dealing with a wake or wave."

The seminar is expected to be coupled with a social media campaign that will encourage the sharing of wake and wave pictures. "It's one of those things," John says, "that if we can bring awareness to the issue, it might make a big difference. These are incidents where operator inattention is one of the big problems and maybe talking about it more will shake free some of that inattention."

From the Gulf Coast to the Northeast, Fulweiler llc is proud to represent injured maritime workers and passengers. "We're a maritime claims firm at the core," John Fulweiler explains. "We fight for what's right for our clients and we do it as lawyers who know the sea. For instance, I still hold a current Coast Guard license."

Fulweiler llc has a battle-tested reputation for aggressive and persistent representation of clients pursuing maritime claims throughout the East and Gulf Coasts. The New York Times and legal publications have sought the Firm's comments on various maritime legal issues, and the Firm is regularly sought out for its admiralty law expertise.
