Westec InterActive Selects the Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone for Enhanced Audio in Retail and Restaurant Audio/Video Surveillance and Operations Audit

Westec InterActive, the leader in interactive remote security monitoring for convenience store, retail, restaurant and other business applications, selected Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker™ array microphone to be used for enhanced audio for audio/video monitoring. Enhanced audio is especially important for Operational Audits, enabling clear reception of conversations between employees and customers.

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Westec InterActive, the leader in interactive remote security monitoring for convenience store, retail, restaurant and other business applications, today announced that it has selected Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker™ array microphone to be used for enhanced audio in retail and restaurant audio/video surveillance applications. The decision was made after it was tested in several Circle K, 7-Eleven and McDonalds sites that have Westec interactive security systems.

“Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker array microphones proved to be very effective in recording conversations in settings where there is a lot of background noise, such as convenience stores,” said Michael J. Upp, Vice President, Business Development for Westec InterActive. "The Voice Tracker™ reduced the background noise from air conditioners, fans, and other equipment, improving the sound quality of recordings at the stores."

The Voice Tracker’s unique technology locates the region where the conversation is coming from and electronically steers a “listening beam”, like an acoustic searchlight, in that direction. This creates spatial filtering, and “noise” from other parts of the room is not picked up.

“The ‘listening beam’ allows our Operational Audit Specialists to clearly hear conversations between employees and customers. This helps monitor customer service levels and accurately report findings back to our customers,” says Upp.

Acording to Acoustic Magic, its Voice Tracker™ microphones are effective in reducing background noise by utilizing both spatial filtering and digital noise reduction. They also have improved sensitivity by constructively adding the outputs of the 8 individual microphone elements in the array.

“Westec InterActive was the first company to recognize the potential of the Voice Tracker as a surveillance microphone in convenience stores,” said Bob Feingold, CEO of Acoustic Magic. “We’re pleased to have our technology used by Westec, the leader in remote access security.”

Safety.BLR.com Helps Employers with this Challenge: How to Deliver Required OSHA Training to a Growing Population of Hispanic Workers

Safety.BLR.com has just created a Spanish Resources Center to help employers keep up with the challenge of keeping a rapidly growing multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s safety and health requirements.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Experts at OSHA recognize the problem, but busy employers are the ones trying to cope with it. Immigrants make up an estimated 14 percent of the U.S. workforce, and nearly half of them are considered to have limited proficiency in English. That translates into a big challenge for employers: how to keep a multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s stringent safety and health requirements.

Fortunately for employers, Safety.BLR.com, the website for safety professionals that makes training and compliance easier, has just created a Spanish Resources Center at http://safety.blr.com/spanish.cfm. The Center includes Spanish training handouts and quizzes on 54 OSHA topics. It also features news, white papers, forms, guidance documents, regulatory activity, and agency directives and interpretations to help manage occupational safety and health for the Spanish-speaking workforce.

Steve Quilliam, editor at Safety.BLR.com, commented on the site’s new Resources Center: “OSHA requires companies to make sure their employees understand safety training and follow OSHA requirements. That obligation doesn’t change if their employees have a limited understanding of English. So with its prewritten training materials and handouts, our new Spanish Resources Center can be a helpful solution to this challenge.”

The 54 training topics in the Resources Center include Spanish handouts and quizzes on confined spaces, defensive driving, electrical safety, and eye protection.

Sample safety meeting for Hispanic workers:
To help employers get their training started, BLR has made available a sample hazard communication training meeting in English and Spanish, similar to those available at Safety.BLR.com. To download this free sample, go to www.blr.com/81001600/PRS3

Also featured will be Peet’s fresh-brewed coffee, a sushi bar, hot soups to go, organic produce, and an extensive catering menu.

The new Park Avenue store will also carry a variety of natural and organic food products, as well as traditional grocery items for customer convenience. “Gourmet Garage enables everyday customers to shop like a chef,” said Arons. “We pride ourselves on our ability to bring the freshest, finest produce, meat, fish and specialty items from around the world directly to our shoppers.”

Toftejorg Technology A/S Changes Name to Oreco A/S

Oreco A/S develops the market's most effective systems for automated, non-man entry tank cleaning and oil recovery.

Ishoej, Denmark (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 10, 2022 -- Oreco A/S is the new name of Toftejorg Technology A/S, developers of the market's most effective systems for automated, non-man entry tank cleaning and oil recovery.

Toftejorg Technology are longstanding leading specialists in automated systems for tank cleaning and oil recovery. As an element in the company's reprofiling, and to signal a more rejuvenated market approach, Toftejorg Technology has been renamed Oreco A/S

"Oreco stands for Oil REcovery COmpany," says Managing Director Michael M. Meyer, "because this is the area in which we have our core expertise. Our new name will continue a tradition of tank cleaning expertise that goes back almost half a century."

Ready for the Challenges of the Future
The combination of advanced technology, robust cleaning systems and a global network of partners has given Oreco a prominent market position. Nevertheless, many challenges await in the years ahead.

Environment, health and safety are critical issues in today's world. And tank farms, tank cleaning companies and refineries require both fast and effective tank cleaning solutions that make optimal use of resources and create minimal environmental pollution.

"We therefore look forward to the future with considerable confidence," says Michael M. Meyer. "With our existing product programme and with ongoing development of our systems we enable our customers to meet modern-day requirements."

Established, Safe Systems
Oreco's integrated and automated solutions, BLABO® and MoClean®, are established names in the market and will therefore retain their existing identities. They will continue to represent innovative technology which is used and valued all over the world.

Safety considerations are met through system design to HSE specifications. This means that the systems combine almost 100% oil recovery with non-man entry, which eliminates the risks involved in manual tank cleaning.

But Oreco's work is far from finished there. Oreco continuously improves its systems, ensuring that the company can present new and effective ways of meeting the oil industry's environmental requirements also in the future.

Survey on Hotel Cuisine Promotions by Dining Downunder

To identify the challenges for hotels in hosting cuisine promotions, Dining Downunder has developed an industry survey which is located at www.dining-downunder.com/survey.asp . The survey will run until the end of March and allows hotels to evaluate future promotions and distinguish the profitability of a particular event.

(PRWEB) March 9, 2022 -- Guest chefs are commonly invited to host hotel promotions around the world. However many promotions are still seen as significant cost centres and run for public relations rather than as for what they should be - serious revenue generators.

To identify the challenges for hotels in hosting cuisine promotions, Dining Downunder has developed an industry survey which is located at http://www.dining-downunder.com/survey.asp . The survey will run until the end of March and allows hotels to evaluate future promotions and distinguish the profitability of a particular event.

Dining Downunder’s survey covers all the necessary facets to providing a successful hotel cuisine promotions and includes areas such as; promotional budget; cuisine selection; menu development; marketing; staff training; sponsorship; room sales and most importantly, what makes a promotion successful?

The survey also directs participants to think outside the square to attract attendees to the promotions and look at what opportunities they offer potential guests. Then there is also the consideration of staff training. How convenient can it be to invite a guest chef who specialises in a particular cuisine and have them instruct the kitchen brigade on the intricacies of his specialty cuisine? Why shouldn't the Human Resources Department contribute to the promotional budget?

As the survey is of industry benefit, Dining Downunder will share the responses for all chefs, F&B; directors and General Managers to consider. The results will be emailed out in early April.

Promotions Survey is located at www.dining-downunder.com/survey.asp

Hot from the Coffee Press: Save Hundreds of Dollars on Your Daily Cup of Gourmet Coffee

To celebrate its upcoming one-year anniversary, CoffeeFirst LLC is introducing a new distributor plan this week. This plan allows people to receive fresh roasted gourmet coffee for years, in return for a one-time payment.

Jackson, TN (PRWEB) March 2, 2022 — To celebrate its upcoming one-year anniversary, CoffeeFirst LLC is implementing a new type of distributor plan this week that could change the coffee business. By paying once, customers will get the opportunity to receive fresh roasted gourmet coffees and teas for years to come. With coffee bars charging up to $3 for gourmet coffee drinks, savings on “your daily cup” could be adding up quickly.

As people worldwide have been warming up to the taste of fresh roasted gourmet coffees, retail prices have soared. With the rise of major chains of coffee outlets, people have grown accustomed to paying over $2 for what used to be a simple breakfast drink. It’s not surprising that in the past years we have seen a steady rise in home brewing of gourmet & specialty coffees. Hundreds of dollars can be saved by brewing your own fresh cup at home, instead of stopping by a specialty coffee outlet on your way to the office.

Brewing a flavorful cup of coffee is no longer reserved to those who can afford to buy a top-of-the-range espresso machine. Although a good espresso machine will certainly brew a better coffee, the secret for a great cup of coffee really is hidden in the quality and freshness of the coffee beans. Everyone can now purchase specialty gourmet coffee beans that are roasted fresh the moment you order. Even with a regular coffee maker these could be turned into a flavorful brew.

CoffeeFirst is expected to launch its new distributor plans later this week. With the new plan, distributors can receive gourmet coffee for years to come, in return for a one-time payment.

For additional information Bart van Bakel

About CoffeeFirst, LLC
CoffeeFirst, LLC has been selling gourmet coffees from around the world since 2004. All Coffees are roasted fresh when you order and shipped directly to your home.

With the CoffeeFirst business opportunity, distributors are offered a complete home business solution where average people can earn money from selling gourmet coffees & teas, without having to pay monthly fees.

Customer Service Software Identifies Repeat Offenders in Food Industry – Significant Possibilities for Other Industries

Scottsdale, AZ Customer Service Software developers Lynk Software helps organizations achieve advanced database organization with their newly released version of Everest: Customer Focused Quality.

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) February 9, 2022 -– Customer Service Software developers Lynk Software helps organizations achieve advanced database organization with their newly released version of Everest: Customer Focused Quality. One of the key features added to the new version of Everest is duplicate account look-up. This is proving to offer some unique benefits. Originally designed for the purpose of helping the food industry identify “repeat offenders,” (consumers filing multiple complaints in order to receive free product), many other industries and organizations find themselves celebrating the feature for its organizational benefits.

The duplicate account feature immediately identifies customers already in the database, either by name, address or phone number. Organizations such as banks and retailers are finding that the feature supports customer service representatives in their goal of entering the same customer only once and adding additional complaints to the existing record as needed.

“Customer service representatives are known for dealing with multiple calls in short periods of time. Undertaking an extensive database search for existing records was time-consuming, and therefore difficult, due to other calls needing immediate attention. This feature allows customer service representatives to do their jobs quickly and efficiently,” reports Michael Herzog of Lynk Software.

One bank manager exclaimed, “In the past a new record would be created for each complaint, even when the customer was calling from the same household. Now, the inquiry or complaint is easily added to the existing record.”

This feature provides an opportunity for organizations to collect more accurate data for utilization in their quality improvement and customer service efforts, as well as helping the food industry manage their specific customer service requirements.

About Us
Lynk Software is an industry leader in the field of customer complaint management and customer service software. Their flagship product Everest: Customer Focused Quality is used by some of the nation’s largest organizations. Lynk Software was founded in 1970 and has been on the cutting edge of business software development.

Tungsten Branding Names New Coffee House Concept

Tungsten, a national branding firm, names Joe Ricos, a new coffee house concept set to open in Houston, Texas

(PRWEB) February 8, 2022 -- When entrepreneur Mark Mohr set out to open his new coffee business, he knew it would be different and he wanted a name to reflect that uniqueness. To capture the sense of organic origins, authentic ingredients and search for adventure, he turned to Tungsten Brand Marketing, (http://PureTungsten.com) a naming consultancy with credentials that include PODS, (Portable On Demand Storage), and the new TeamLogicIT franchise launched by FranServ; the company that created Sir Speedy and PIP Printing.

The final result? Joe Ricos Coffee and Tea.

"The 'Joe' portion of the name refers to the American slang for coffee and the 'Rico' is Spanish for 'rich', so you basically have 'rich coffee'", states Phil Davis, president of the naming firm. "But beyond providing a clever meaning, it conveys the sense of adventure and wanderlust that is 'Joe'. In that capacity, he will be the imaginary traveler who discovers these exotic brews and brings them home. It's Marco Polo meets Indiana Jones, and the look of the stores will reflect that feel."

When asked how his new coffee concept would differ from existing ones, Mohr replied, "Unlike Starbucks, we're going to bake our muffins, bagels and scones fresh daily, in our micro bakery. And where Starbucks has gone to automated processes, we have chosen instead to use the proven old world methods of hand crafting our coffee drinks, using fair trade, organic, artisan coffee beans and teas. In addition, we will staff fully trained baristas who will custom make our drinks."

What also separates the Joe Rico concept is the wide offering. "We'll be serving 100% real fruit smoothies- which allows us to offer a certified Koser product. Our base commitment is to utilize organic, Kosher and fair trade products because we believe it's possible to deliver a flavorful, fully natural beverage while benefiting small, co-op type farmers. The fair trade designation helps us to protect the integrity of the small coffee and tea growers throughout the world. It's part of what Joe Ricos is all about."

The new store is set to open mid March 2004 with a second store already planned to follow. Franching is also under consideration. But for now, Mohr is excited about the immediate future and the potential niche that Joe Ricos will serve. "We're glad to have a name that embodies the essence of what this company is about... authenticity, adventure and commitment to our global community."

Flor de Sal USA Announces Agreement with Market 2 Market, Inc. to Represent Their Products in the Pacific Northwest

Flor de Sal USA, exclusive importer and distributor of Necton SA’s Flor de Sal and Sal Marinho Tradicional, hand–harvested salts of Portugal, is announcing their agreement with Market 2 Market to represent their products in the Pacific Northwest. Market 2 Market will serve as the exclusive brokerage firm in the states of Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana and Alaska.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 8, 2022 -- “Market 2 Market’s long-standing presence in the marketplace and industry contacts made them an easy choice to represent us in the marketplace. The stable of products they have chosen to represent to their customers matches the quality and excellence of our own,” says Brian Batts, Managing Partner, Flor de Sal USA.

“Our clients look to us to provide them with the newest in artisanal, specialty products, and more frequently gourmet salts. We believe we’ve found a product that meets the unique needs of our gourmet and specialty clients and are looking forward to presenting these products to them,” says Cheryl Hofer, Owner, Market 2 Market.

About Necton's Gourmet Sea Salt Products:
After the winter rains have ceased, and the birds have begun their journeys back north, the salt pans (salinas) of the Belamandil, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the European coastline, are ready to be harvested. During the summer months, weather permitting -- an absence of rainfall and a dry wind from the north -- the salinas are worked by local artisans, salt harvesters (marnotos). The marnotos, on a daily basis, skim the delicate crystals forming on the top of the salt pan by hand, with the same wooden implements that have been used for millennia. The resulting brilliantly white sea salt -- Flor de Sal – literally "the flower of salt" – also known as Fleur de Sel - is a light, crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth salt that maintains all the micronutrients naturally found in ocean water and has been described by many as having hints of sweetness and creaminess, without any of the harshness commonly associated with regular table salt.

Necton’s Traditional Sea Salt (Sal Marinho Tradicional), similar to Flor de Sal, is harvested by hand, but only after the salt crystals have settled on the bottom of the salina. Every three weeks, the marnotos, using similar implements and techniques as with Flor de Sal, exercise great care in harvesting Sal Marinho Tradicional. These crystals, along with Flor de Sal, are placed in piles beneath the Algarve sun, where they are naturally dried, and then sent off for packaging, with no additional processing taking place.

About Flor de Sal USA
Located in Seattle, WA, Flor de Sal USA was started in the summer of 2004 with the goal of bringing Necton’s award winning salts to the U.S. marketplace, with plans to work directly with Necton to develop additional nature-based products which spring forth from the salt pans of the Ria Formosa Natural Park in southern Portugal.

About Market 2 Market
Started in 1999, Market 2 Market is one of the premier brokerage firms in the northwest for gourmet and specialty foods. In addition to Belamandil Flor de Sal and Sal Marinho Tradicional, Market 2 Market represents such well known gourmet brands as Stonewall Kitchens, Republic of Tea and El Paso Chile Company. Market 2 Market prides themselves on their ability to identify gourmet and specialty trends in the marketplace and select the perfect stable of brands to represent to their distribution and retail customers in the Northwest.

The First Compostable Logo for Cutlery Goes on NAT-UR® Utensils

The NAT-UR® biodegradable plastic cutlery has just received another international honor. The Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) this week granted its first "Compostable Logo" to NAT-UR, Inc. for compostable utensils. NAT-UR® utensils are made of NAT-UR resin which incorporates NatureWorks PLA™. The BPI’s symbol demonstrates that NAT-UR’s cutlery meets ASTM D6400 “Specifications for Compostable Plastics”.

(PRWEB) February 3, 2022 -- "We are very pleased to be the first cutlery in the USA to carry the Compostable Logo, it has been a long search and a cooperative effort with ours suppliers and others. NAT-UR utensils offer a convenient, durable and responsible alternative for everyday use by consumers,” said Frederic Scheer, President and CEO, NAT-UR, Inc. “The cutlery provides more than just the performance and durability desired in flatware, it competes on price and will not deplete the earth’s limited resources like traditional, petroleum-based disposable serviceware.” The combination of higher costs for fossil fuels and the use of natural components makes NAT-UR® utensils competitive to conventional disposable plastic cutlery.

The BPI symbol will be used on all NAT-UR's utensils made including its forks, spoons, knives, and sporks of various sizes. NAT-UR utensils can be used like traditional plastic food service items but offer the benefit of being based on renewable resources and as well as being can be compostable. NAT-UR’s newest entries complement the company’s already extensive line of BPI approved food service containers and compostable bags.

“I am committed to using biobased raw materials wherever possible,” added Scheer. NAT-UR’s food serviceware are made with NAT-UR® resins which incorporate NatureWorks PLA™ resin manufactured by Cargill Dow using corn grown in the United States. The new utensils were tested by a third party laboratory for its biobased content using radiocarbon dating. The results confirmed that the products are biobased with content in excess of 95% and NAT-UR, Inc. is an active member of the Biobased Manufacturer Association.

The Compostable Logo is a joint effort between the U.S. Composting Council and the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) to identify plastic products which are designed to biodegrade satisfactorily in municipal and commercial composting systems, as do leaves, grass and food scraps. Before a manufacturer can receive the BPI symbol, it must provide data from an approved, independent laboratory that their products meet the specifications in ASTM D6400. This assures that the products will disintegrate and biodegrade quickly during composting and not leave behind any toxic residues or plastic fragments. Further, the data must be reviewed by knowledgable third party scientists to assure conformance.

Steve Mojo, BPI Executive Director, anticipates the growing list of compostable will lead to savings in the composting industry. He said, "We encourage composters, officials and end users to look for products that meet the ASTM specifications and carry the BPI symbol in order to maximize the benefits and demonstrate their cost effectiveness."

About NAT-UR, Inc. and its biodegradable packaging
NAT-UR’s innovative manufacturing process combines natural starch with other biodegradable materials to produce packaging that are 100% biodegradable and compostable. And unlike so-called “degradable plastic,” NAT-UR products do not use polyethylene or polystyrene and do not leave any plastic residue. When composted, NAT-UR packaging biodegrade completely into carbon dioxide, water and biomass in 30-60 days, just like food scraps and yard trimmings.

Composting organic waste has always been difficult, since all contaminants such as plastic utensils and polystyrene packaging must be first separated from the waste stream, a painstaking process that is usually too costly and labor intensive to make economic sense. NAT-UR products can be disposed along with leftover food in biodegradable trash bags that can be taken directly to a composting facility without expensive sorting.

NAT-UR is a leading provider of biodegradable packaging designed to meet the highest needs for sustainability. NAT-UR assists individuals, communities, schools, businesses and governments in finding innovative ways to reach sustainability in the use and disposal of biodegradable packaging, relying on organic material through sophisticated waste recovery systems. NAT-UR is involved in all levels of the supply and the recovery of sustainable packaging.

NAT-UR’s products include lawn and leaf bags, bin liners, and food serviceware such as cutlery, cups, straws, lids and plates. NAT-UR products are sold by large national chain such as Whole Foods Market. NAT-UR received the BPI logo for its line of biodegradable-compostable bags & liners and its other food serviceware including cups & food containers. NAT-UR is based in Los Angeles, California. More information is available at its website (www.nat-ur.com)

BPI is a multi-stakeholder group, involving people and organizations that produce, use or recover biodegradable plastic products. It promotes the growth of biodegradable plastics through education, use of scientifically-based standards and cooperative efforts with organizations in Europe and Asia.

Flor de Sal USA Announces the Launch of Their Private Label Program for Their Line of Flor de Sal and Sal Marinho Tradicional

Flor de Sal USA, exclusive importer and distributor of Necton SA’s Flor de Sal and Sal Marinho Tradicional, hand–harvested salts of Portugal, is announcing the launch of their private label program.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 3, 2022 -- Working directly with Necton S.A. to package the product, Flor de Sal USA is now able to provide numerous options to retailers and manufacturers for packaging and labeling.

“We’re excited to be able to offer our fine salts to retailers and manufacturers who have worked hard to develop their brands in the marketplace. Hand-harvested, artisanal, natural sea salts are an easy extension to an existing line - boosting sales and increasing consumer loyalty to a brand. In a category like salt and seasonings, the difficulty is finding something that sets a product apart from the rest – something that truly adds value to a brand. That is, in part, why we believe this program offers so much value to potential customers,” said Brian Batts, Managing Partner of Flor de Sal USA.

About Necton's Gourmet Sea Salt Products:
After the winter rains have ceased, and the birds have begun their journeys back north, the salt pans (salinas) of the Belamandil, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the European coastline, are ready to be harvested. During the summer months, weather permitting -- an absence of rainfall and a dry wind from the north -- the salinas are worked by local artisans, salt harvesters (marnotos). The marnotos, on a daily basis, skim the delicate crystals forming on the top of the salt pan by hand, with the same wooden implements that have been used for millennia. The resulting brilliantly white sea salt -- Flor de Sal – literally "the flower of salt" – also known as Fleur de Sel - is a light, crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth salt that maintains all the micronutrients naturally found in ocean water and has been described by many as having hints of sweetness and creaminess, without any of the harshness commonly associated with regular table salt.

Necton’s Traditional Sea Salt (Sal Marinho Tradicional), similar to Flor de Sal, is harvested by hand, but only after the salt crystals have settled on the bottom of the salina. Every three weeks, the marnotos, using similar implements and techniques as with Flor de Sal, exercise great care in harvesting Sal Marinho Tradicional. These crystals, along with Flor de Sal, are placed in piles beneath the Algarve sun, where they are naturally dried, and then sent off for packaging, with no additional processing taking place.

About Flor de Sal USA
Located in Seattle, WA, Flor de Sal USA was started in the summer of 2004 with the goal of bringing Necton’s award winning salts to the U.S. marketplace, with plans to work directly with Necton to develop additional nature-based products which spring forth from the salt pans of the Ria Formosa Natural Park in southern Portugal.

Additional information on the program can be found at www.flordesal.net/merchant.htm, or by contacting Flor de Sal by phone at (206) 407-3882.

2004 Another Banner Year for Kentucky BourbonQ

Kentucky BourbonQ announces the barbecue awards received during the 2004 year. Awards include a 2004 Scovie Award, accepted internationally as the top award for spicy foods, and 1st & 2nd Place People's Choice Awards at the 2004 International Zesty Food Show

PRWEB) February 2, 2022 -- With yet another strong showing in multiple arenas of barbecue competition, Louisville-based Kentucky BourbonQ has shown once again why their products are the “BEST!” Shane Best, president of the 20 year old company, continues to create international champions with his winning combination of all-natural ingredients and award-winning packaging. A 2004 Scovie Award and 1st and 2nd Place People’s Choice Awards at the International Zesty Food Show in Dallas, TX, are among the awards bestowed upon Kentucky BourbonQ in the year 2004. While the Scovie competition is widely accepted as the top award for hot and spicy foods internationally, Best is more proud of his sweep of the People’s Choice Awards in Dallas. As Best pointed out: “Recognition from internationally renowned food experts is of course flattering. But I’ve always been more tickled when we get feedback from the customers. To win both 1st and 2nd Place People’s Choice Awards at an international food show in Texas is one of my biggest accomplishments. Because, as we all know, Texans know good barbecue!”

The recent Scovie Award is not the first received by Kentucky BourbonQ; they also received the honor from the 2001 ballot.
