From composite decking to vehicle ferries, businesses in Door and Kewaunee Counties are vying for the same title as the coolest thing made in Wisconsin. Dozens of products from across the state are featured in the contest organized by the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce with Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding, Woodrow Engineering and Kick Ash Products representing Door County and Ponderosa Dairy, NEW Plastics, and Parallel 44 Winery representing Kewaunee County. NEW Plastics’s REVOLVE composite decking recycles items like old milk jugs and turns it into building materials. Owner and Vice President of Sales and Marketing Lonnie Vincent says it is a validation of the work they have been doing locally since 1975. While Vincent hopes NEW Plastics comes out ahead when the winner is named October 8th, he is excited for what the future has in store for the Luxemburg company as it finishes up a number of additions and renovations on its site.

TikTok’s new ‘Hashtag Challenge Plus’ lets video viewers shop for products in the app

TikTok, the short-form video platform favored by young adults and teens, has launched a new feature that allows users to shop for products associated with a sponsored Hashtag Challenge, without leaving its app. These sponsored challenges are Gen Z-friendly marketing campaigns where users are prompted to post videos of them using a product — like showing off favorite outfits from Uniqlo or Guess, for example. Or they might participate in some sort of manufactured viral trend, like singing favorite Disney songs ahead of a Disney-themed episode of American Idol. The new e-commerce feature, called Hashtag Challenge Plus, adds a shoppable component to the hashtag. In addition to creating and viewing videos featuring the brand’s sponsored hashtag, a separate tab features an in-app experience where products from the campaign can be purchased within TikTok itself. Last week, Kroger was the first brand to try out the new feature, according to a report from AdWeek. While not exactly a company that exudes youth appeal, Kroger found a way to reach TikTok’s young adult audience through their hashtag campaign. In partnership with four TikTok influencers — Joey Klaasen, Cosette Rinab, Mia Fin...

(Photo By Stephen McCarthy/Sportsfile via Getty Images) If Anthony Joshua looks like he doesn’t have a care in the world right now, well, it’s because he doesn’t. On Saturday, June 1, he will attempt to defend his WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight world titles against challenger Andy Ruiz. Joshua, the massive favorite is fighting Ruiz, who is a replacement for the original challenger, Jarrell Miller. Ruiz took this fight on relatively short notice for a fight of this magnitude after Miller tested positive for banned substances. Joshua, the undefeated heavyweight champion has a perfect record of 22-0 (21KOs). Ruiz’s only blemish was in 2016 when he lost a majority decision to Joseph Parker for the vacant WBO heavyweight title in Parker’s native land of New Zealand. Since then Ruiz 31-1 (21KOs) has won three fights while waiting to get another shot at the world title. Andy Ruiz might look like the guy next door, not the one that goes to the gym. The other one, that looks like he plays a lo...
