On PR Newswire: Turkey Talk-Line Opens, Holiday Travel Forecast, USPS Announces New Stamps
With thousands of press releases published each week, it can be difficult to keep up with everything on PR Newswire for Journalists. Here are some of this week’s most newsworthy:
The Butterball Turkey Talk-Line is now officially open for the holiday season, marking 40 years as an authority on all things Thanksgiving. Since 1981, the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line experts have offered advice and tried and true tips for cooking a perfect turkey to millions of holiday hosts, initially by phone, and now including text, online chat, social media, and Alexa.
This year Butterball also launched the Turkey Talk-Line Taste Kitchen – developed to inspire hosts by testing the latest social media cooking trends – as part of its continued evolution to support home cooks.
The holidays are a time to connect with family and friends, and this year a return to travel will make spirits bright for many. According to Deloitte’s inaugural report, “2021 Deloitte Holiday Travel Survey,” Americans plan to hit the roads and skies, as well as hotels and private rentals, to rekindle holiday traditions, but health and financial concerns still weigh on their minds. Based on a survey of 6,512 Americans fielded Sept. 9-23, among those, 2,759 qualified as travelers, and a smaller subset of 1,501 travelers noted they would stay in paid lodging during the holiday season.
The U.S. Postal Service has announced several new stamps to be issued in 2022. “The new 2022 stamps are miniature works of art, designed to be educational and appeal to collectors and pen pals around the world,” said USPS Stamp Services Director William Gicker. “As always, the program offers a variety of subjects celebrating American culture and history. The vivid colors and unique designs of this year’s selections will add a special touch of beauty on your envelopes.”
High Availability of Fast-Food Restaurants Across All U.S. Neighborhood Types Linked to Higher Rates of Type 2 Diabetes, New Study Finds
An increasing number of studies suggest a link between a neighborhood’s built environment and the likelihood that its residents will develop chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes (T2D), and certain types of cancers. A new nationwide study led by researchers from NYU Grossman School of Medicine published online today in JAMA Network Open suggests that living in neighborhoods with higher availability of fast-food outlets across all regions of the U.S. is associated with higher subsequent risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Chipotle Mexican Grill today (Nov. 2) announced it is testing Pollo Asado, the first menu innovation with chicken in its 28-year history, at 95 restaurants across Cincinnati, Ohio, and Sacramento, Calif. A new flavor of chicken to hit the grill, Pollo Asado features the unique taste of garlic, fresh lime, guajillo peppers, and hand-chopped cilantro.
