Richmond, Virginia—While the COVID-19 pandemic freezes other public plans, the Snow Globe Santa™ experience maintains our beloved holiday magic through the perfect paring of a new book, Snow Globe Santa, along with innovative snow globe-inspired safety barriers. Already on the radar of the New York Times and fresh o? the heels of exclusive interviews with CNBC and NBC, first-time author Kathryn Burgess of Richmond, Virginia, is ready to share her brilliant solution with the world—just in the (Saint) nick of time.

As a professional photographer of eight years, Kathryn Burgess is used to capturing holiday magic. After experiencing mounting cancelations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Burgess was determined to save one experience in 2020—a child’s yearly visit to Santa Claus.

A military spouse and mother to three young children, Burgess authored her first children’s book, Snow Globe Santa (Atlantic Publishing Group), as a way for parents, caregivers, and educators alike to regain control over the narrative a?ecting how and when children will

encounter Santa this year. She took her idea one step further by providing the physical barriers —Snow Globe Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)—to mitigate COVID risk and maintain proper distancing during these Santa experiences.

In her book, Burgess—who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Iowa —spins a whimsical holiday tale in which Santa becomes trapped inside one of his elves’ beautiful new snow globes. Happily, all ends well for the man in the red suit and the children who long to see him.

For her Snow Globe PPEs, Kathryn partnered with Alvantor, Bella Design Group (designer of many acrylic shields for this season), and Bubble Tents to provide three options for event holders who wish to maintain CDC compliance at their next holiday gathering. The first, a 10’ pop-up globe, can be set-up with ease for any Santa experience—but it’s ideal for Santa brunches, community visits, and smaller Santa experiences. The second, an acrylic snow globe patrician, is ideal for shopping malls and locations with frequent visitors. The third option is a show-stopping 10’ inflatable bubble tent that serves large outdoor or drive-thru events with ease.

Kathryn’s thoughtful and thorough “book and barrier” idea has created ripples among the publishing community since its first introduction. Ever since the Snow Globe Santa story was picked-up and expedited to press by Atlantic Publishing Group, public interest in Kathryn’s Snow Globe Santa experience has snowballed: especially among Santa-based talent communities such as the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas, the Peachtree Santas, and more. In a recent interview with the New York Times, Stephen Arnold, President of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas, lauded Kathryn’s book and PPE concept as a way to keep the holiday spirit alive and keep Santas working amid the pandemic (Friedman, G. and Maheshwari, S., September 2, 2020).

From Kathryn:

These past few months have been hard on us all. Our days have been plagued with negativity, cancellations, illness, and fear. This past summer, I began thinking about the upcoming holiday season, and I quickly realized the likelihood of visiting Santa with our children would be slim-to-none. I have three little kids that won't easily understand why we can't go visit Santa, and I refuse to default yet again to cancelling plans.

Modern-day Santa can be traced back to the late 18th century. This means he has survived the bubonic plague, the Spanish flu, and smallpox—to name a few. Santa shouldn’t be stopped by COVID-19. No, the man who flies around the world with nine magical reindeer to visit each child's home in a single night does not need to relinquish

his route due to COVID-19.

In order to provide the Santa Claus experience this coming year—and to provide a safe experience, at that—we need to get creative. Snow Globe Santa is a unique and fun storybook that creatively explains why this upcoming holiday season will look di?erent. This passion project will serve families of small children and the communities in which they live by maintaining the magic true to the character of Santa.

If we are faced with a situation that has no equivalent in recent history, in long history it is different: major epidemics are the engines of history, like wars and economic crises. 26 centuries later, we are faced with the same problems as those highlighted by Thucydides during the great plague of Athens in the 5th century BC: trying to understand how this disease presents itself and acquiring prior knowledge so as not to be faced with the unknown.

This epidemic is a very particular shock, both in terms of its violence: the economic growth of developed countries must fall by 9.8%, much more than during a stock market crash, and its universal nature: 187 of the 197 states that count the planet are affected by COVID-19.

 It is also a complex crisis: health, economic, social, humanitarian.

The shock is universal, but the reactions are very different. China has mobilized all the resources of its total capitalism and regained control of the epidemic. It is the only one of the large countries that will be growing this year, between 1.5% and 2%. As for the developed countries, there is an unprecedented mobilization of economic policy to move quickly, with fiscal and monetary policy implemented in a few weeks, and nearly $ 20 trillion has been injected into our economies (compared to 5 Trillion to save the banks in 2008-2009).

Three blocks stand out in developed countries:

The populists who spectacularly missed out: Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, Jair Bolsonaro ...

Some countries have responded very well: Germany, Northern Europe, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan ...

Certain countries, in southern Europe, have been very strongly affected, in terms of health or economics.

Companies that have communicated wisely and with the right message will come out the winners of this period, unlike those that have remained silent.

If you are looking to make your service activity more visible, Credible, strong Notoriety to communicate with impact and sell more easily, welcome to!

Stay Safe and Take Care

AntiVirBag, a portable air cleaner, ionizer, and ozonizer, is on Indiegogo from November 10, 2020, allowing backers like you to pre-order AntiVirBag for its lowest price ever. Today, you can order the AntiVirBag Super Early Bird for €99, a 66% markdown from the future retail price of €299. Once the campaign starts, you can get our special offer of  €149, a 50% markdown from the retail price. You get the AntiVirBag and a strap set.


The AntiVirBag is a battery-operated, portable, high-performance air purifier, ionizer, and ozonizer. It combines the protective effects of an air purifier with the neutralizing protection of ozone, providing a double-dose of protection that other air purifiers lack. In doing so, it provides the user with clean air, even if you’re in a polluted public environment such as:

  • Cars
  • Taxis
  • Trains
  • Buses
  • Planes
  • Elevators
  • City streets
  • Office buildings
  • Supermarkets
  • Restaurants


Basically, anytime you want clean air, the AntiVirBag is the portable, high-performance solution you need to breathe easier.

Why You Need Clean Breathing Air

The air around you is dirtier than you think, even when you think it’s reasonably clean. That’s because there are often pollutants, pathogens, and harmful particles in the air, even when the air looks clean. You won’t know unless you test the air, but you can’t test every lungful of air you breathe.


The problem? The air you breathe is critical to your health.


Take the average sneeze, for example, the most obvious red flag of spreading germs. The average uncovered sneeze can fling germ droplets up to six feet away, but smaller particles can travel eight feet or further. Plus, a hearty sneeze can fling droplets at up to 100 mph, according to the University of Bristol.


Unfortunately, unclean air is about more than just viruses. There are all sorts of unhealthy particles in the air, including pollutants. The problem is that you can’t see these particles in the air, and while they may not have an immediate effect on your health, they do have a cumulative effect on your health.


AntiVirBag allows you to breathe easy by ensuring the air you breathe is fresh and clean. It does this in two ways: with negative ions and a small dose of ozone.

Negative Ions

Who says negativity is a bad thing? In this case, it’s actually fantastic for the air you breathe. It all comes down to magnetism.


Remember in science class when you learned about the positive end of the magnet being attracted to the negative end? The same thing applies to particles--opposites attract.


So, when you put negative ions in the air, they do what negative ions do best: attract positive ions. The good news? This basic fact of nature is what makes AntiVirBag work.


When we say that AntiVirBag purifies the air you breathe, we’re talking about negative ions. Most particles are over-positive (ionically speaking), which means they’re naturally attracted to negative ions. This includes particles like pollutants and pathogens.


AntiVirBag works by using a metal lamella insert with tips connected to a battery-operated high frequency generator which sends negative ions into the air. This works to attract positively-charged pathogens to the device, where they adhere to the metal lamella strips.


Of course, AntiVirBag doesn’t stop there.


Once AntiVirBag extracts positively-charged pathogens from the air, it goes one step further. It then releases a low dose of ozone. Ozone, or O3, is a form of oxygen gas composed of three oxygen atoms (as opposed to the more common O2).


This makes ozone highly reactive. Trust us, that’s a good thing--it means that ozone is spectacularly good at purifying the air.


Then, after the ozone purification, the air is finally filtered. This is how AntiVirBag goes the extra mile, making sure that you always have clean air. 

Benefits of AntiVirBag

The real benefit of AntiVirBag is that it’s so much more than just a regular air filter.


Most air filters work by trapping air particles before you breathe them in. While this works for some particles, the reality is that no filter can catch everything. They’re just not made that way. Filters are good at catching a specific type of particle or a particle size, but some others might slip through. Also, filters don’t clean the air--they just trap the bad stuff.


Unfortunately, this can still leave a lot of stuff floating around in the air.


AntiVirBag is a smarter solution. Instead of simply filtering the air, it works to actively clean the air and neutralize harmful particles. That way, instead of just breathing filtered air, you get air that you know is clean, no matter where you are.


In addition, AntiVirBag is designed to be portable and easy-to-use, matching the busy lives of those who use it. Your need for clean air does not stand still, and you shouldn’t have to stand still for clean air either.

AntiVirBag on Indiegogo

This is why we’re proud to bring you AntiVirBag on Indiegogo. Because when it comes to the air you breathe, you shouldn’t have to settle for anything less than clean.


Our campaign starts on November 10, but if you order now, you can still get the AntiVirBag Super Early Bird for €99. Around the middle of December, we’ll send out a survey where you can enter your shipping address. After we get your surveys back, we will start working on pre-orders, and you’ll get your AntiVirBag by February 2021.


Want to try the AntiVirBag for yourself? It’s simple. Start by backing the project and then pick a reward--the AntiVirBag Super Early Bird or the Special Offer.


From there, choose your shipping destination (don’t worry, we’ll check in with you again in December). Then, continue as a guest or create a Indiegogo account. From there, add your payment information.


Then, you’re ready to pledge--and be one of the first to receive the AntiVirBag.

SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) sees that the Pandemic will have a lasting impact on how consumers interact with the physical world. This impact will be most pronounced in the aversion the public will have to touching commonly used devices such as the credit/debit card PIN pad at a checkout counter.

This aversion to using public touch points will no doubt accelerate the use of contactless credit cards with a growing demand for the abandonment altogether of needing to enter a PIN on a numeric pad at the checkout. The death of the PIN has been coming for a long time given that a four-digit numeric code is today seen as one of the weakest forms of security imagined. Code breaking software you can carry in your smartphone can crunch numbers in seconds to defeat PIN codes. It is just that until now, there hasn’t been the impetus to bring about credit card industry wide change especially in an industry that is so large that implementing change is at best, not an easy task.

"SmartMetric sees that the Pandemic will cause a rethink across all areas that have public touch points ushering in a total rethink on how consumers will interact with devices including the processing of their credit card at a checkout," said today Chaya Hendrick, SmartMetric’s President and CEO.

The SmartMetric fingerprint activated dual interface credit and debit cards, having both contact insertion into a card reader along with contactless RFID/NFC wireless reading, use biometrics to provide a much higher level of card security to that of PIN based cards. At the same time the card's enhanced security that stops the card from being able to be used unless there is a 100% fingerprint match with the card user's fingerprint, provides Banks with a much safer card platform. Even the card's RFID/NFC contactless feature is only activated following the biometric fingerprint match.

Using biometrics that are built into the card delivers a quantum leap in card security while now making contactless card payments even safer than the standard credit card. This means that Banks can now rethink the transaction dollar amount limit now in place on contactless credit and debit cards. With a card that can now only be used by the person the card is issued to, contactless "no pin pad touch" transactions can be safely used by the consumer while mitigating card fraud for the Banks.

The global contactless credit/debit card payment market size is expected to grow from USD 10.3 billion in 2020 to USD 18.0 billion by 2025. This is at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.7% during the forecast period according to report published by the research group, MarketsandMarkets 1.

SmartMetric is ready to move aggressively forward in making available its new card to card issuing Banks around the world, in association with its global banking partners.

SmartMetric is a USA based company with sales and marketing partnerships in Latin America, Europe and the United States. Engineering of the biometric card electronics is done in-house and is the owned intellectual property of the company.

MarketsandMarkets™ provides quantified B2B research on 30,000 high growth niche opportunities/threats, which will impact 70% to 80% of worldwide companies’ revenues. Currently servicing 7500 customers worldwide including 80% of global Fortune 1000 companies as clients.
