TAIPEI, , TAIWAN,, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 / — Taipei, Taiwan, January 18, 2019— Gearlab, award-winning design company of high-performance kayak paddles, and global nonprofit Sea Shepherd have just announced a collaboration to make a limited-edition collection of painted paddles embossed with the Sea Shepherd logo. A preliminary launch and pre-order date will be set for January 2019. The paddles will ship early March 2019.

For more than 40 years, Sea Shepherd has worked diligently to end the destruction of open water habitat and the slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.

For this agreement, 100 percent of the profits per sale will be donated to Sea Shepherd.

The founders of Gearlab believe strongly in the advocacy and protection of our outdoor assets on land and in water. “We believe in the work Sea Shepherd does, and we feel our mission is aligned with theirs. Sea Shepherd has a very strong reputation in our industry; it’s an honor to have put together this program with them,” said Chung-Shih Sun, co-founder and developer of Gearlab paddles.

Gearlab paddles are designed, produced, and tested by a team of industrial engineers who are passionate about outdoor adventures, especially paddling. These top-of-the-line paddles enhance speed, agility, and promote adventure and fun on the water. Gearlab is an outdoor-focused company that believes by introducing more people to the outdoors and adventure this will inherently drive the passion to protect nature’s assets.

“While we can’t change the world, we start by making changes within our community,” said Chung-Shih. “This program is a natural fit for the group at Gearlab. The team is made up of activists and avid outdoor supporters, Gearlab organizes company-sponsored activities, including trail and ocean cleanups and promotes Leave No Trace policies. Gearlab also creates outreach programs, Outdoor experiences are especially hard to come by for youngsters in urban Asia, where many tend to be isolated from nature. We work to change this.”

New website www.Hotels.Tube gives travellers unbiased and realistic review of hotels.

www.Hotels.Tube offers true presentations of accommodation options from different hotels from around the world for users to make WISE Reservations.

NEW DELHI, DELHI, INDIA, January 18, 2019 / — Hotels.Tube has officially launched its website www.Hotels.Tube allowing users to create and post videos of hotels and accommodation from around the world. The brand-new start-up company was established to give travellers a more realistic and unbiased look at hotels. On the website www.Hotels.Tube videos can be posted created by travellers, bloggers, and from their own in-house producers. Each video allows the hotel to be showcased in a more natural way than through many of the promotional clips and advertisements released to the public.
Travel websites like Trip Advisor and Expedia receive millions of visitors per month. Yet, many of the reviews for hotels are biased due to bad experiences or one traveller’s unhappiness with an aspect of their accommodation. One review can harm a hotel’s revenue as more people read and base their accommodation plans on the experience. Hotels.Tube aims to prevent these types of reviews from occurring. Travellers and bloggers have the chance to showcase a hotel through their video. Viewers can see exactly what it would be like to stay at a particular venue as they see all the major aspects of it.
One of the most unique features of Hotels.Tube videos and reviews, is it allows users to give their honest opinion of the venues. Viewers are able to hear honest and realistic reviews about prices, room size, amenities, and much more. The great information makes planning a trip easier as real travellers give viewers important advice.
In 2018, a serial fraudster was found guilty of selling fake reviews to hospitality businesses. Fake hotel reviews are a major concern for both hotel companies and travellers. Hotels.Tube hopes their videos and reviews can eliminate untrue information allowing both travellers and hotels to benefit.
Hotels.Tube allows users to create and post their own videos. It also has an in-house team of editors and producers who can create videos. The start-up has outlined its desire to work hand-in-hand with hotels to create realistic presentations of their accommodation. Hotels.Tube believes the more transparent a hotel or company can be about its rooms and experiences, the more successful it can be. Hotels can hire the start-up company and allow it access to their branch to showcase a true sense of the venue.

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 / — 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

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;

For 46 years, Spinnaker has been a leader, innovator, and expert in all things burgers, beach, beer, and entertainment. Now with the new focus on food, the signature menu will be fresh and offer guest favorites like the Paradise Burger, fish tacos, seafood and more. Spinnaker Beachside Grill will offer guests a flip-flop casual experience with a real focus on amazing food and a laid-back beach attitude. 8795 Thomas Drive, Panama City Beach, FL 32408.

Figueiredo Gel explains why Brazilian entrepreneurs are coming to the United States so often

The Brazilian businessman Figueiredo Gel

Figueiredo Gel is a Brazilian has transportation, textile and entertainment business. He explains why many Brazilian businessmen like him are coming to the US

There’s a large number of successful Brazilians who want to spend their money in the United States, in shopping, tourism and opening new enterprises in America, investing millions of dollars”

— Figueiredo Gel

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 / — The United States of America is known worldwide as the land of the opportunities, land of the free market and freedom of speech. Along the years, the so-called "paradise of the Capitalism" have attracted several businessmen from all around the globe who were looking for ideas, inspirations, opportunities and make money. It may explain why Brazilians are always visiting the United States, becoming the third place in the ranking of visitors, behind UK and Canada only.

According to Figueiredo Gel, a prominent businessman in Brazil in the field of transportation, textile and entertainment, the USA are very attractive to Brazilians, not only for those who are looking for business and make commercial deals, but also for tourism, vacations and good infrastructure: “The USA welcome us, Brazilians, with lots of possibilites, beautiful and safe cities, full infrastructure for leisure and business, magnificent hotels and competitive prices. Sometimes, it’s cheaper to come to New York City or Orlando than travel to some cities in the Northeastern region of Brazil, where I live. Here’s why Brazilians have come to experience being abroad for a while, having fun and also make business”, says.

Figueiredo Gel also says that in US, the shopping experience is taken to a new level: “It's very attractive for us, Brazilians, to go shopping in the US. Prices are competitive, compared to Brazil. Many people from Brazil go to the US attracted to the Outlets, Black Friday and sales. It’s a consumption oriented society, where the economy spins because Americans are always buying or selling something, it’s a dynamic market, who absorbers their own production, with a high domestic demand for products for consumption. That’s why prices are so competitive: low taxes, high demand, high production”.

Brazilians have come to US massively: in 2017, more than 1,6 million people from Brazil visited the US, although the dollar exchange rates in Brazil haven’t been favorable 1 USD is equal to 3,8 Brazilian Reais, approximately: "There’s a large number of successful Brazilians who want to spend their money in the United States, in shopping, tourism, leisure and opening new enterprises in America, investing millions of dollars", says.

Figueiredo Gel believes in better relations between Brazil and United States in a near future, what could increase the number of Brazilians visiting America, such as increasing the amount of money they invest here: “The new president elected in Brazil is looking for being closer to Donald Trump and the White House, and it may improve the relationship Brazil-United States. I hope so. Maybe, in a near future, I can think in expand one of my companies to US. Now it’s just a thought, but who knows, it depends on how things are going to be. In the present, my interest is visiting US to participate on congresses, go to iconic places, and having a good time with family and friends”.

2018 Lake Simcoe Waterfront Report

The Lake Simcoe waterfront real estate market experienced a 6% overall increase to the average sold price last year. The total number of sales dropped by 32%.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 17, 2019 / — Lake Simcoe Waterfront Report
Market Review for 2018

In 2018, the Lake Simcoe waterfront real estate market experienced a 6% overall increase to the average sold price within the areas that we have been reporting for the past 10 years which include:
• Georgina
• Innisfil
• Oro-Medonte
• Orillia
• Ramara
• Beaverton

The total number of sales dropped by 32% in 2018. There were 113 sales in 2018 compared to 165 sales in 2017.

(NOTE: Our annual reporting only includes properties sold above $300,000 on Lake Simcoe/Lake Couchiching. Canal, island or riverfront sales are excluded from our analysis.)


We identified a number of market trends that include price fluctuations and buyer and seller expectations as follows:

• Due to its close proximity to Toronto, Lake Simcoe continues to be a popular location targeted by buyers seeking ownership of waterfront property.

• Lake Simcoe property owners tend to consider their waterfront property as a secondary home rather than a seasonal cottage.

• Buyers expect similar modern interior features and amenities in their recreational property as their principal residence.

• Direct waterfront sells for approximately 12% higher than Indirect (shoreline is across from the road) waterfront properties.

• Resale condominium sales in the 600-acre Friday Harbour four-season Resort represented 47% of all waterfront sales in Innisfil. We foresee this trend continuing as the development is approved for 2,500 units. 500 units had closed as of June 2018.

• According to Cottage Life, the average price of recreational properties in Southern Ontario is $413,000.

• Buyers confirm that having reliable Internet and cell services is an absolute must when looking at recreational properties as reported by HGTV.

• More and more millennials are choosing cottage over house since they believe they’ve been shut out of the Toronto-GTA housing market.


• Georgina waterfront sales are down 56% since 2017 however, the average sold price increased by 10% as reported by the Toronto Real Estate Board in 2018.

• Beaverton waterfront sales declined by 47% which was primarily due to a lack of inventory. The average sold price decreased by 19% year-over-year.

• Oro-Medonte experienced a 9% price increase since 2017. Total sales are down 28% due to a lack of available inventory. The average sold price of $1,629,783 continues to outperform all other waterfront communities included in our analysis.

• Ramara reported 19 sales in 2018 with the average increase to the sold price of 7%.

• Lake Simcoe waterfront prices did not experience the same volatility reported throughout Toronto and the GTA in 2018.

• Total sales volume is down 32% since 2017 with 113 properties sold.

• The overall median sold price of $1,003,375 fell slightly by 1% however, the overall average sold price of $1,219,650 increased by 6% year-over-year.



Georgina’s lakefront communities include Roches Point, Keswick, Balfour Beach, Willow Beach, Eastbourne, Jackson’s Point and Sutton West. This area experienced the largest decrease in sale volume in 2018, however, sold prices rose by 10%.

The highest sold price reported in 2018 was $3,000,000 which is approx. $1M less than the 2017 high of $3,988,000. There was only 1 sale over $3M, however, 68% of all sales reported sold above $1.5m.

9 of the total sales were indirect waterfront properties with an average sold price of $1,074,944. The remaining 13 sales were direct waterfront properties with an average sold price $1,681,154 approx. 56% higher.

The average value per linear foot for direct waterfront was $20,013 and $17,826 for the indirect waterfront.


Beaverton properties are mostly all direct waterfront as the shoreline is deeded to the property. Affordability and the western sunsets continue to draw more and more buyers to the area. Sales volume was down by 47% due to a lack of inventory. This area also experienced the largest decrease in the average sold price of 19%.

Current prices still indicate there is tremendous value on the eastern shore of Lake Simcoe. In 2018, the highest selling price reported on the Toronto Real Estate Board was $880,000.


Oro-Medonte continues to outpace the sold price of luxury properties compared to all other areas we monitor on Lake Simcoe. Shanty Bay, a sub-area of Oro-Medonte is an exclusive area located on the northwest shore of Lake Simcoe and known for its large estate homes.

In 2018, the highest selling price reported on the Toronto Real Estate Board was $4,239,108. 5 sales were located in Shanty Bay. 6 of the total sales sold over $2,500,000.


Innisfil sales in 2018 include resale condominium properties located in the Friday Harbour Resort which, had a positive impact on the number of sales reported. There were 15 condo sales, representing 47% of the total sales in 2018. Only 3 condo sales reported in 2017. We believe this trend will continue as more and more resale units in the Friday Harbour development continue to exchange hands.
