TAIPEI, Taiwan, Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Masterfully blending yoga with fitness, an innovative new yoga studio called Den Yoga opens Nov. 20, in Taipei City, Taiwan. Founded by American Betty Ford, who gained prominence as a top yoga instructor and elite competitive bodybuilder, Den Yoga is designed to help people refresh, rediscover, and re-energize their lives.

Den Yoga is available to anybody interested in reducing stress, gaining strength and flexibility, experiencing fewer aches and pains, losing weight, and improving their overall fitness,” said Betty, who was raised in Colorado, one of the healthiest states in the U.S. “I created Den Yoga to give people a welcoming, fun respite from their busy lives.”

Inspired by some of the finest American yoga studios, Den Yoga offers five signature classes that Betty describes as “firmly rooted in yoga and inspired by strength.” One of the studio’s most popular classes, named Den Booty, focuses on legs and glutes. “Our students love this lively class because we keep things moving, challenging and fun by incorporating yoga with resistance training,” she said. “For example, we’ve strategically added free weights, steppers, and my own creation, the BETTYBAND, to help people achieve faster results.”

Another core class is called Den Yoga Fit, designed to help students reap the benefits of full-body training. “We’ve made it a point to offer classes appealing to any age,” Betty explained. “Whether you’re just beginning your yoga journey, want to take your skills to the next level, or simply appreciate yoga at a slightly more relaxed pace with static stretches and yoga flow — we offer yoga instruction designed with you in mind.”

With 15 years of yoga experience in America, she patterned Den Yoga after some of her favorite studios in the U.S. “We’ve designed everything with our client’s comfort in mind,” said Betty, who also serves as a Lululemon Legacy Ambassador. “For example, our classrooms set the mood and enhance everybody’s yoga experience with dimly lit, color-enhanced lighting, infrared heated panels, and surround-sound music paired specifically to the movements we’re teaching.”

As one of the first hot power vinyasa studios in Taiwan, she says Den Yoga is a studio where everybody is welcome. “That’s why both English and Chinese are spoken here, so everybody can feel at home whether you are a local, foreigner, vacationing in Taiwan or traveling on business,” said Betty, who gained her business acumen by working for a Fortune 500 Company in America.

A highly successful, women-owned and operated business, Betty says there is nothing she loves more than helping people feel amazing. “I love teaching yoga, because I get to see people arrive often feeling stressed out by their day, and leave feeling fantastic,” she added. “Den Yoga is meant to uplift the spirit and remind people that can reach their goals.”

TIS Introduces Domestic Payment Orchestration & Smart-Routing Capabilities

Optimizing Supply Chain Payments Via Virtual Cards & Enhanced ACH Creates Significant Cost-Efficiency, Workflow Automation, & Payment Fraud Risk Reduction for Enterprise Clients

Featured Image for TIS

BOSTON, Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, enterprise B2B payments leader Treasury Intelligence Solutions (TIS) announced the launch of a new domestic payment orchestration program.

Using the program, enterprises operating in certain localities, such as the U.S., can leverage TIS to simplify and streamline payment activity across their domestic network of suppliers, vendors, and partners. By analyzing each unique vendor relationship and supplier network, TIS can determine which domestic payment option provides the greatest financial and operational efficiency across ACH, virtual card, check, or wire. Then, TIS provides a streamlined and highly secure channel for enterprises to execute these transactions via integrations with several selected institutional and fintech partners.

Payments that are channeled through this workflow are ultimately rewarded through a rebate program that can provide significant savings for companies with high payment volumes.

For added simplicity and security, enterprises that join the program can submit a single payment instruction file to TIS for identifying the relevant payees, invoices, execution dates, and eligible payment options. This drastically streamlines the process for companies to submit payment instructions through their back-office and eliminates the need to store redundant supplier payment data in their originating system, such as an ERP. It also significantly reduces the risk of payment fraud via an enhanced segregation of duties workflow for managing supplier payment master data.

Having initially introduced the program to the U.S. in July 2022, there are already more than 75,000 suppliers enrolled, and over $20 billion in applicable payments are being routed through TIS annually. According to Chris Calhoun, CEO Americas at TIS, “Optimizing the use of local payment modalities in the U.S. and in other regions allows our clients to simplify and streamline their supply chain payments and achieve a material financial benefit. As such, developing solutions that provide efficiency and risk reduction in these areas continues to be a top priority.”

FRESCA™ Mixed & Andy Cohen

CHICAGO, Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the end of the year approaches, so does a flurry of social outings – from office parties to family get-togethers and more. That’s why FRESCA™ Mixed has kicked off its partnership with Emmy-winning host, producer and self-proclaimed FRESCA® superfan Andy Cohen for the brand’s new integrated campaign to feature the premium ready-to-drink cocktail line, which first hit shelves in September.

Inspired by Cohen’s longtime passion for FRESCA®, the partnership will highlight how FRESCA™ Mixed takes the classic, grapefruit citrus taste of FRESCA® and adds a frisky spirits twist to the ready-to-drink alcohol category. In his role as brand partner, Cohen will be fully integrated across FRESCA Mixed brand initiatives including new promotional videos, digital campaign, in-person events and more.

FRESCA™ Mixed & Andy Cohen

After receiving an incredible response from consumers over the past two months, FRESCA™ Mixed has connected on social media with fans of the brand to get their take on the new ready-to-drink cocktail. This week, FRESCA™ Mixed sought out the biggest FRESCA® fan, Cohen, through attention-grabbing tactics. Today, Fresca™ Mixed has officially brought him on board to act as the brand’s muse and to lead future initiatives. Cohen not only answered the brand’s call, but took it a step further by nominating himself to be the first VP of Frisky for FRESCA™ Mixed.

“It’s about time someone finally made my favorite cocktail in a ready-to-drink version! I’ve loved mixing FRESCA with spirits for years, so when I saw FRESCA Mixed hit shelves, I knew this was something I needed to be a part of,” said Cohen. “As FRESCAs number one fan, it only made sense that I play a part in maintaining the brand’s spirit, so I’m thrilled to be on the FRESCA Mixed team to keep things fresh and frisky.”

The new FRESCA™ Mixed line provides the right amount of bubbles – and just enough bite – with two varieties, Vodka Spritz and Tequila Paloma:

  • Vodka Spritz is a delicious cocktail that mixes the light and classic citrus taste of FRESCA® with real vodka distilled four times.
  • Tequila Paloma is a modern and sophisticated take on the classic Paloma, expertly blending real tequila blanco from Mexico with the classic taste of FRESCA® for a cocktail that is smooth and easy to enjoy.

FRESCA™ Mixed is enjoyed straight out of the convenient, 12oz can or poured over ice in a traditional cocktail glass.

“Since launching Fresca™ Mixed in September, this new, ready-to-drink cocktail has already become a fan favorite, and now we’ve partnered with none other than Andy Cohen to bring some extra fun to any social gathering,” said Duke Zandstra, vice president, brand marketing, Constellation Brands. “After watching Andy drink FRESCA® with tequila on his show for years, we’re thrilled to work with him to bring FRESCA™ Mixed to life like no one else can.”

Both flavors of FRESCA™ Mixed are 100 calories*, 5% ABV, gluten-free, made with real spirits and no added sugar.

Fresca™ Mixed is a new line of premium, pre-mixed cocktails crafted with the deliciously bright classic grapefruit citrus taste of FRESCA® and real vodka or tequila. Since its inception in 1966, FRESCA® fans have known the soda’s one-of-a-kind grapefruit-citrus taste mixes perfectly with alcohol to create delicious cocktails. Because of this, The Coca-Cola Company and Constellation Brands came together to create the pre-mixed cocktails for fans.

Tourists Canceling Trips to Uganda Over Ebola Fears

Uganda’s tourism sector is once again being hit by effects from a deadly disease.
In 2021, it was the COVID-19 pandemic. This time, it’s the Ebola outbreak, with 141 confirmed cases and 55 deaths.
President Yoweri Museveni said Tuesday in his address to Ugandans that he had been informed that tourists are canceling trips to the country and some had postponed hotel bookings.
This comes as the outbreak has spread to a sixth district of Jinja in Eastern Uganda, a favorite destination for tourists.
“This is most unfortunate and not necessary. As you have seen, Ebola, if you follow the guidelines, it will not get you. Uganda remains safe and we welcome international guests,” Museveni said.
He also said lists of Ebola contacts are being provided to immigration officials to prevent the virus from spreading outside the country.
December is usually one of the peak months for Uganda’s tourism industry.
Scovia Kyarisima, executive director of Legends Gorilla Tours, a company that provides wildlife experiences for visitors, told VOA that several tourists have postponed their visits.
“I’ve had so far five cancellations from online tourists,” she said. “And they have pushed it to June next year. They don’t say we are not going to come anymore. But they say, considering the situation that is on today, let’s push this to next year.”
Before the pandemic, Uganda was getting a little over 600,000 tourists each year. That number nosedived to about 200,000 when COVID-19 hit in 2020, costing many Ugandans their jobs.
Gessa Simplicious, public relations officer for the Uganda Tourism Board, said that in between the pandemic and the Ebola outbreak, the tourism industry was slowly climbing out of its downturn.
He said industry operators, some of whom borrowed heavily to revamp their facilities, are now facing a crunch as tourism dries up again, while other wildlife destinations like Kenya and Tanzania remain unaffected by the Ebola outbreak.
“And you see this Ebola is only isolating us as a country. So, it means, tourists can go elsewhere for the same thing and omit Uganda,” Simplicious said.
The government has tightened measures in two of the most Ebola-hit districts of Mubende and Kasanda by extending a lockdown for another 21 days. It is also banning citizens from seeking treatment from traditional healers and trying to limit individuals’ movement in and out of the districts.
