Spinnaker® in Panama City Beach says goodbye “Beach Club” and hello to a whole new way of thinking

PANAMA CITY BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — BREAKING: Panama City Beach, FL., January 17, 2019 / Spinnaker® / — Wow… can you believe Spinnaker has been around, in one form or another, for nearly 50 years? We are very proud to have been part of the history of Panama City Beach since 1972. Consistent with our longevity, we firmly believe it’s all about innovation and willingness to evolve with the times. So, today, Spinnaker® Beach Club is officially announcing that our nightclub days are over, but this news is just the beginning. In an effort to redefine what Spinnaker® means to the world, one bite at a time, we are moving forward as Spinnaker Beachside Grill®.

Since the recent announcements of the last “Beach Club” New Year's Eve party ever and the follow-up R.I.P. “Beach Club” 1972-2018, more than 75,000* people have seen, shared and commented on our social media sites with an overall feeling of WTH? Speculation was rampant. Fans of Spinnaker® guessed everything from the place becoming a condo to being purchased by major music stars. “I subscribed to a theory advanced years ago by a silicone valley magnate that said if it ain't broke, fix it!” owner/operator Sparky Sparkman explains, “The beach has changed dramatically over the past decade. The old days of being a party destination were fun while they lasted, but transitioning into a family-friendly destination is not optional. Spinnaker must and will adapt," Sparkman says, “But not to worry, we’re still going to be the best place on the beach for a burger and a beer, and our live music is enshrined in our roots – we just think it is time to get serious about our food.”

While all the details about the new Spinnaker Beachside Grill are not yet being released, know that the favorites you love like the Paradise Burgers, Fish Tacos and Spin Mac n Cheese aren’t going anywhere! The fact that the final version of the new Spinnaker is still evolving has much to do with the life-altering impact of Hurricane Michael. We promise to share more about the upcoming changes and the 2019 menu soon on our social media sites and our new website eatatspinnaker.com.

Over the past 45+ years, Spinnaker has meant something different for many. And over the next 45+ years, we want Spinnaker to simply be a great place to eat and drink beachside. We promise to treat every guest like family and to exceed your expectations, so Y’all leave happy, spread the word and come back often. We can’t wait for you to experience the new Spinnaker Beachside Grill, coming Spring 2019. More soon on facebook@spinnakerbeachsidegrill; instagram@spinnakergrillpcb; eatatspinnaker.com

For restaurant entrepreneurs, it is often hard to believe that manual research is still required for issues such as occupancy permit, regulatory issues, zoning, and other requirements.”

— Cyrus Leon Batchan, Business Consultant in Sherman Oaks

SHERMAN OAKS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Even though we live in the age of the internet, "paper" has not completely disappeared. Particularly for restaurants and other hospitality businesses, many applications and procedures still involve "paper" applications. Accordingly, research for the hospitality industry still requires a lot of "old fashioned" manual research. For restaurant entrepreneurs, it is often hard to believe that manual research is still required for issues such as occupancy permit, regulatory issues, zoning, and other requirements (and many permit applications, registrations, and other transactions are still in "hardcopy"). Cyrus L Batchan, in his newest published comment, provides an overview of traditional (or “manual”) research for business issues. The complete article is available on the blog for restaurant entrepreneurs of Cyrus Batchan at https://cyrusbatchan.blogspot.com/

Conducting research in the hospitality realm can be extremely difficult regardless of the sources that you might have access to. There are a number of different aspects that need to be taken into consideration when conducting legal research. This is because there are a lot of different directions that you can take with legal research, and it is absolutely imperative for you to take all factors and aspects into consideration when you’re dealing with legal documents and cases since even the slightest discrepancy can amount to a lot.

Needless to say, legal research requires a lot more concentration and diligence than other types of research due to the different conclusions that are possible with minor tweaking. What’s more, since there’s a lot more material that you need to go through when it comes to regulatory, statistical, and demographic research, you need to be absolutely certain that your sources are not only credible and authoritative, but also relevant to the problem at hand.

Another common problem that researchers and people interested in legal issues encounter is that of contradictory information available online. Additionally, in most cases, credible information online comes with a literal price to pay. What this means is that most online platforms that contain credible legal information expect you to pay a fee to be granted access or authority to view the content.

Interested in learning more about how you can go about conducting hospitality research the right way? Read on to find out as we tell you all about the different steps that you should take to conduct research the traditional way without relying on online sources for best results.

My first piece of advice for any new hospitality entrepreneur is to visit the local regulatory agency in person (yes, I mean “you go there personally to ask questions.”) That is probably a good use of your time in preparing for a new business and the best way to obtain information on the regulatory requirements. These agencies have different names in different states and U.S. territories. For example, in the District of Columbia, the agency is called the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA). It is amazing what information you can obtain about licenses and permits in just one visit by simply asking questions. Image what a food safety inspector can tell you about other restaurants in the area where you are planning to open one.

For many of us, it is hard to believe that there are still libraries out there. In fact, they are highly useful and in most cases allow you to do research free of charge.

So here is my first piece of advice: ask a librarian before wasting time searching through a library yourself – In the past, to do research, a student would head over to the library and ask a Librarian for help. Today, that might strike many as, shall we say, "outdated." The fact is that librarians know the library better than anybody, and if you are looking for something specific, a simple question to a librarian may save you hours of wasted time.

Contrary to popular belief, the path you follow for regulatory and other research will be based on a number of different factors. What this means that there is no single, absolute path that’s that must be followed.

While there are certain common and extremely popular steps that are generally followed by anyone who wishes to conduct legal research, it’s important to note that these steps may or may not be followed in a sequential fashion for each scenario. This essentially means that while certain scenarios may require you to follow the steps listed below in the exact order, you may choose to play around for other cases – and that will not affect the results of your research.

Before you start conducting legal research, it’s important for you to know that you will be expected to revisit certain sources of information for increased clarity. What’s more, you might even be expected to check certain sources of information a number of times due to exceptions. Even in the case of exceptions, you will have to double-check whether the conditions of the exception apply to your particular case, and if there is any way that the exception can be worked around for your particular scenario.

Here are some of the steps that you are advised to follow when conducting legal research without the use of the internet:

Have you identified the exact issue? The number one reason why people are unable to conduct thorough research is the fact that they do not pay enough attention to the initial phase of the process. It goes without saying that identifying the problem and its scope is of key importance when you’re interested in conducting legal research as doing so will essentially set the precedent and give you an idea of how thorough your research must be.

When you’re trying to identify the problem and its scope, it’s also important to ask questions that are highly specific and will give you a clear understanding of the jurisdiction, search terms, and time period that is applicable or relevant to the problem. By doing so, instead of being confused by all of the options that you have available, it will be possible for you to get a better sense of direction to start taking the most appropriate path for conducting your research.

Have you checked other sources of information? Unlike primary sources, secondary law or sources of information are bound to help you understand how your specific scenario is also relevant for a much broader context. What’s more, once you start browsing through secondary sources of information, it will be far easier for you to visit primary sources that are relevant to your particular scenario and can help you gain greater understanding for the scope in question.

By consulting secondary sources of information, it will also be possible for you to get references to citations and statutes that will help you gain the right information regarding your legal research.

What is the “relevant” information here? Once you have done your fair share of research through secondary sources, it will be far easier for you to identify relevant statutes that will help you in gaining the information that you need for your legal research of a particular scope, question, or scenario. By identifying relevant statutes, you can get into greater detail and start browsing through to find other sections that may be relevant or could potentially add value to your legal research.

In addition to finding the right statutes for the legal research of your particular scenario, you can also browse through cases in digests and find ones that may contain relevant information to ensure that all aspects of research are covered.

Make sure to write down important facts. Keeping track of all of the documents that you have already been through is extremely essential to ensure that you do not have to resort to the same cases and documents over and over again. It’s also important to note that you must do so regardless of whether or not you have retrieved any relevant information from the source.

Here are my final thoughts when researching issues for your hospitality business: make sure to keep a file with all information you have collected. I find it most useful to use legal-size manila folders for different subjects (tabbed according to the issue contained therein, such as “occupancy permit” and “food license”). That way, all your precious research is preserved and organized for future use.

CANADIAN START UP GRAIN DISCOVERY EXECUTES WORLD’S FIRST CORN TRANSACTION USING BLOCKCHAIN

New tech start-up Grain Discovery will revolutionize how farmers trade their grain.

The way grain is bought and sold hasn't changed much since our grandparents were farming! In the age of Amazon and eBay, we reckoned the industry deserves better.”

— Rory O’Sullivan, CEO of Grain Discovery

PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — New tech start-up Grain Discovery sets its sights on transforming the agriculture industry following the world’s first corn transaction using blockchain. This trade on the Grain Discovery platform is the first step in creating a more modern, transparent, and secure agricultural supply chain.

Founded in 2018 by leaders in the commodities, blockchain, trading and data fields, Grain Discovery aims to revolutionize how farmers trade their grain.

"Farming technology in the agricultural industry is incredibly advanced," explained Rory O’Sullivan, CEO of Grain Discovery. "However, the way grain is bought and sold hasn't changed much since our grandparents were farming! In the age of Amazon and eBay, we reckoned the industry deserves better."

Grain Discovery’s online marketplace allows farmers and buyers to advertise their deals in real time and complete their trades through blockchain, resulting in secure and instant payment and built-in traceability that continues beyond the farm gate.

On December 24, 2018, following the unexpected rejection of two loads of corn, tested on-site to be just over the threshold for vomitoxin – a toxin produced by mould that has damaged much of Ontario’s corn harvest – Prince Edward County farmers Larry Reynolds and Lloyd Crowe used the Grain Discovery platform to find a new local buyer, confirm the trade and receive payment instantly.

“By using Grain Discovery, we were not only able to avoid hours of searching for a new buyer, but found one just down the road, at a better price than the original deal, and were paid instantly," said Mr. Reynolds.

Grain Discovery is focused on untangling the complicated supply chain paths for grains. The Grain Discovery platform gives more control to both farmers and buyers and has endless applications, from allowing consumers to see the path their food travelled, to calculating the carbon intensity behind the production of food and biofuels.

"We are participating in a number of other pilot projects this year, including tracing soybeans from seeds in Canada to the export market in Japan and coffee from Columbia to your local café,” said Mr. O’Sullivan. “This transaction was the vital first step towards realizing our goals.”

For farmers like Mr. Reynolds it’s a simple equation: “If blockchain technology means a few extra dollars in my pocket and a few hours less trucking, then that’s a win.”

About Grain Discovery
Founded in Ontario in 2018 by leaders in the commodities, blockchain, trading systems and data fields, Grain Discovery is committed to untangling the complicated supply chain for grains, using blockchain technology to increase the transparency, security, efficiency and traceability of the supply chain.

Powertranz Launches New Platform to Support EMV and PCI Validated P2PE Point of Sale Card Processing

Powertranz removes complexity in face-to-face card payment acceptance across the Caribbean

With the deployment of Powertranz we have solved an important issue in the Caribbean. We have removed the dual entry requirement, significantly improving a merchant’s ability to reconcile transactions”

— Chris Burns

HAMILTON, BERMUDA, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Powertranz Ltd., a newly incorporated card payment solutions provider, in partnership with First Atlantic Commerce (FAC), a global online payment gateway, today announced the launch of Card Present payment platform, Powertranz.

Powertranz is a modern, robust payment gateway that provides Integrated Point of Sale (POS)/Card present transaction processing, including EMV and PCI Validated Point to Point Encryption (P2PE), for merchants across the Caribbean.

The first and only truly integrated Card Present payment solution incorporating PCI Validated P2PE in the Caribbean, Powertranz provides POS software vendors with a lightweight integration point to enable integrated payment solutions for merchants.

Powertranz currently supports Chip and Pin, Chip and Signature, and Magnetic Stripe read capabilities across 17 Caribbean countries.

The fully equipped payment platform features PCI Validated P2PE, the PCI Council’s standard for End to End encryption, via Powertranz’s partnership with Bluefin Payment Systems. PCI validated P2PE encrypts card data at the point of contact with the payment terminal, removing all clear text credit card data from the merchants’ systems.

This largely reduces PCI Scope and protects merchants from credit card data breaches, which continue to trend upward on a global scale.

Key Features

• Full integration between POS software and payment terminal
• Elimination of price and credit card data manual entries
• Elimination of costly dual entry mistakes
• Cleansed transactional data sent back to POS software in real time
• Protection from costly data breaches
• Sensitive card data encrypted at all times
• Improved ability to reconcile transactions
• No requirement for POS software vendor to do costly EMV certifications to processors
• PCI Validated P2PE protection on each transaction
• PCI authorized scope reduction

According to Powertranz CEO, Chris Burns, until now, the Caribbean market lacked a truly integrated EMV solution. POS software and payment terminals did not have access to the required integration points.

“With the deployment of Powertranz we have solved an important issue that existed in the Caribbean for many years. We have removed the dual entry requirement, which significantly improves a merchant’s ability to reconcile transactions,” he said. “And thanks to Bluefin, we can provide PCI Validated P2PE solutions within POS environments which not only greatly reduces the merchant’s PCI Scope, but also gives them industry leading protection from costly data breaches. This is a major step forward for the Caribbean payments industry.”

Ronnie Viera, COO of Powertranz added: “We are extremely pleased that, after 3 years of design, development and testing, Powertranz is now available to the market. The new gateway was built with a fully redundant systems architecture using the latest in technology. As well, we have released a state-of-the-art merchant portal web application to provide merchants with deep insight into their transaction processing activity.”

Powertranz is available now to Point of Sale merchants across the Caribbean. For more information, please visit www.powertranz.bm

About Powertranz

Powertranz is a sophisticated Card Present payment platform that processes integrated Point of Sale transactions, including EMV and PCI Validated Point to Point Encryption (P2PE), in the Caribbean marketplace.
