Nevis Naturally Launches #TasteofNevis Video Series Competition

Nevis Naturally today launched its #TasteofNevis video series and competition that aims to bring Nevis into people’s homes during COVID-19 lockdown

CHARLESTOWN , NEVIS, April 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nevis Naturally today launched its #TasteofNevis video series and competition that aims to bring Nevis into people’s homes around the world during COVID-19 lockdown which prevents international travel.

As part of the #TasteofNevis video series, each week participants will be exposed to the very ‘best of Nevis’ culture and cuisine and will make their own re-creations at home. Participants will be guided in their re-creations by means of video tutorials from Nevis locals who have themselves become known throughout the island.

Weekly prizes will be awarded for the best re-creations as well as a grand prize to be awarded to the participant whose re-creations are judged by originality, presentation and flare.

The first re-creation is the signature Nevis cocktail, the ‘Spicy Island Turtle’, a white rum and mango-based drink with various spices added for good measure! This is available to view on all Nevis Naturally social media accounts: Instagram (@nevisnaturally), Facebook (@nevisnaturally), Youtube (nevisnaturally) and Twitter (@NevisNaturally) accounts.

Weekly video tutorials will be available on all social media platforms and ingredient lists will be available on the www.nevisisland.com website.

Entries are to be submitted by posting a photo or video of the re-creation via Instagram (@nevisnaturally), Facebook (@nevisnaturally) or Twitter (@NevisNaturally), making sure to tag @nevisnaturally in the post and use the hashtag #TasteofNevis.

The launch of the #TasteofNevis series comes during the COVID-19 pandemic which has restricted International travel. In a statement last month, the Nevis Tourism Authority announced that St. Kitts and Nevis would not be accepting any commercial airline flights, ships and yachts into its seaports and airports until the spread of COVID-19 was under control.

Nevis looks forward to a time when they will be able to welcome visitors to Nevis in person, however, are pleased to be able to reach out to the world in these difficult times.

As such, Nevis Naturally recently launched its #SeeYouSoonNevis campaign across social media platforms, led by a video montage of the stunning scenery, fantastic food and friendly faces that make Nevis the hidden treasure of the Caribbean.

Central Florida Survey Finds Companies Hiring but Human Resource Managers are Challenged During COVID-19

Jobs in Orlando Florida

Human resource and talent professionals in the Orlando MSA all are working very hard getting their companies through this crisis.

HR professionals are doing amazing work dealing with a shattered workforce, and we appreciate them sharing this important information to help our work community get even stronger”

— Roger Lear, President

ORLANDO, FL, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — OrlandoJobs.com surveyed fifty-eight Central Florida companies to find out who is hiring during COVID-19 and what challenges human resource professionals are experiencing. This survey also provides direct insight into how companies are managing remote workers and day to day policy changes.

"COVID-19 has turned the Central Florida workforce upside down for workers and employers," states Roger Lear, President of OrlandoJobs.com. "In speaking with so many HR professionals, they are doing amazing work dealing with a shattered workforce, and we appreciate them sharing this important information to help our work community get even stronger."

This survey found that employers' primary concern is the safety of their staff as they work on the front lines (essential workers) or those working remotely. Both scenarios require new policies and procedures never thought of pre-COVID-19. Also, employers worry about workers returning to work post-COVID-19 for many reasons included in the survey.

This survey found 34% of companies are hiring during COVID-19. Most of these jobs are for essential workers in over ten industries. OrlandoJobs.com/jobfair virtual hiring event is live and includes over 90 employers with open jobs during COVID-19.

"Central Florida employers are ready to get back to work and rehire so many residents that have been furloughed or laid off," Lear said. "Our hospitality industry will lead the way, and when Disney World and Universal Orlando reopens, so does Orlando and the world. This survey emphasizes all Central Florida companies, no matter what size, want to make their workplace safe so employees have no doubt they will not get sick".

Brewers Marketing and Daruma Tech Keep Craft Breweries Connected to Customers Through COVID-19 Crisis and Beyond

Brewers Marketing Supports Brewers During Pandemic

Brewers Marketing and Daruma Tech Keep Craft Breweries Connected to Customers Through COVID-19 Crisis and Beyond

Our app is allowing us to stay connected to our customers and helps us continue our business with carry-outs and gift certificate sales. It allows us to notify them when we have a promotion or alert.”

— Tami Plourde, owner of Pearl Street Brewery

BOCA RATON, FL, US, April 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Even as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced bars and restaurants to close their dining rooms and taprooms, independent craft breweries are continuing to engage customers, exploring safe and novel ways to serve their communities, and cultivating new fans, thanks to Brewers Marketing’s dedicated mobile app and marketing platform for the craft beverage industry.

Brewers Marketing, a specialty division of Daruma Tech, a developer of mobile apps, has been helping state and regional brewers’ guilds and their members—mostly small, independent breweries—build brand awareness and customer engagement. The mobile apps, branded for each guild, allow craft beer aficionados to learn about regional breweries, find breweries close to them, see menus of brews created at each brewery, and even map out tours of breweries in a region of interest.

Because craft breweries can no longer serve drinks on the premises, many are actively pursuing new revenue streams to keep their staff employed. Many are offering beer for takeout or delivery or partnering with local restaurants to provide takeout meals. Meanwhile, loyal fans of local breweries are still craving the comfort of their favorite brews and a continued sense of connection to the brewery’s community as they navigate a difficult and unpredictable time.

Brewers Marketing apps are helping craft breweries stay connected to their core customers during this crisis.

“Our app is allowing us to stay connected to customers and helps us continue our business with carry-outs and gift certificate sales,” said Tami Plourde, owner of Pearl Street Brewery in La Crosse, Wisconsin. “It allows us to notify them when we have a promotion or alert. And although we look forward to the time when we’ll be able to meet our customers face to face again, our Brewers Marketing app is now allowing us to continue business every day.”

“COVID-19 is posing challenges to the hospitality industry, and consumers are overwhelmed trying to figure out who’s open or closed,” explained Rick Griswold of Brewers Marketing. “It’s confusing for consumers because this situation is so exceptional that some food and beverage outlets are changing their hours and offerings day by day until they figure out what works for them. Our apps make it easy for craft beer fans to get up-to-the-minute information on how to get their favorite brews right on their phones. They can check which places are open or closed before heading out. And just like before, they can also use the app to get the latest information about what’s on tap—or rather, what’s new and available in growlers or cans for takeout or delivery.”

Independent breweries are also striving to be part of the solution to the challenges posed by the pandemic. Some breweries, for instance, have pivoted to producing hand sanitizer, while others are partnering with local charities to raise funds for those in need. In Rhode Island, independent breweries are also supporting each other—those with canning equipment are opening their canning lines to smaller breweries so they too can offer their beer for takeout sales, said Gary Richardson, executive director of the Rhode Island Brewers Guild (RIBG).

Also, the guild has offered to help restaurant and bar owners monetize unused kegs of beer already in stock before the mandated closures. “Restaurants stuck with beer in kegs that they can’t tap and serve at the bar received permission to fill and sell growlers from the kegged beer,” Richardson explained. “The RIBG has offered to train restaurants who may not have served beer in growlers before in the proper techniques, including cleaning the tap lines and making sure the growlers themselves are clean and sanitized.”

Brewers Marketing apps also support breweries’ philanthropic efforts by facilitating consumer awareness and buy-in. “With the app, brewery owners can get the word out directly to their most effective marketers—their regular customers,” Griswold said. “All breweries have to do is enter the latest information about their campaign into a secure web portal, and the information appears on the app. Fans of the brewery can feel good about supporting and promoting these charitable efforts, and this will translate into an even stronger relationship between the brewery and its customers as we move past this crisis.”

Brewers Marketing apps have proven so impactful to existing client guilds and their member breweries that other guilds are signing on, even during the COVID-19 crisis. “They’re signing on because of, not in spite of, COVID-19,” Griswold said. “Now more than ever, it’s critical to nurture relationships with existing customers. And they know the app will put them in a strong position to build brand awareness for member breweries among visitors to their region once things return to normal. People are going to want to travel and explore new places once this is over, and Brewers Marketing can help them make meaningful connections.”

The RIBG is among those with apps in the works. While the deployment of their Digital Passport mobile app, which will allow users to discover the guild’s member breweries and earn swag such as branded hats and growlers by checking in to breweries on the app, has been delayed due to the COVID-19 crisis, the guild is already planning for its launch. “The delay gives us a chance to make sure all is in readiness when we can open again,” Richardson said.

Daruma Tech is a developer of cloud-based marketing platforms and mobile apps specifically for the needs of the craft beverage industry. Leveraging cutting-edge technology, best practices in marketing, and an understanding of the fast-growing craft beverage industry, Daruma Tech creates attractive, high-impact custom apps for guilds, festivals, and craft summits for tourism boards, civic organizations, and economic development institutions.

COVID-19 has touched several lives and has forced us into new modes of operating business and day-to-day life.”

— Adam El-Agez, founder of My Virtual Mission

NEW ZEALAND, April 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — COVID-19’s economic impact is widespread as businesses and organizations continue to cancel events and close doors. There is a significant surge in demand to implement virtual technologies to connect with audiences, expand customer market reach and gain back lost revenue during this time.

Virtual fitness technology leader, My Virtual Mission, released their Race Host platform today. The Race Host platform is designed for businesses, entrepreneurs and charities allowing them to host virtual fitness events to engage with target audiences, expand global market reach and generate revenue.

Created with advanced virtual technology, the Race Host platform offers an enormous opportunity to scale audience reach and increase revenue. The virtual platform allows businesses and charities to connect to existing target audiences as well as tap into new global markets. Race hosts can create a series of virtual challenges, determine the entry fee and promote sales directly through their website or mission page. Marketing is simplified with the platform’s self-service features, including the capability to share on social media and tailor the finisher’s email. Challenge pathways are fully customizable and can be set to any location in the world for a duration of one day to 18 months.

The Race Host platform provides challengers with engaging visual representations of progress toward a goal as they advance across the path – similar to a game board. As challengers advance along the mission path each time they perform an exercise such as walking, running or cycling, they see progress on the map with Google Street View, their mission surroundings and real-time weather information. The user-friendly interface allows challengers to easily sync workouts with connected apps and trackers including: Apple Watch & Health, Fitbit, Google Fit, Strava and Under Armour. Additionally, challengers can share images from their workout and comment to encourage and connect with other participants.

“COVID-19 has touched several lives and has forced us into new modes of operating business and day-to-day life,” said Adam El-Agez, founder of My Virtual Mission. “Our Race Host platform is our answer to stay motivated with fitness and wellness, increase business revenue, and engage your audiences. We are all in this together and will come out stronger and healthier from it.”

Currently, My Virtual Mission works with organizations from Fortune 500 companies to startups, major brands and small local businesses in order to provide an unmet need. Customers have reported increases in fitness engagement and positive reviews.

“We’ve been using virtual missions to engage with our clients over a couple of different challenges and the results have been fantastic!” said James Walker, director of Sustain Nutrition. “Because it’s gamified, it takes the boredom out of the cardio and it really incentivizes people to do more.”

"My Virtual Mission is user-friendly, easy to sync with other applications and a great addition to any online challenge,” said Ayman Hakky founder and managing director of The TriFactory. “We used at The TriFactory to launch a customized online marathon challenge for our followers, which was a great success and in which the My Virtual Mission app was a great part of the experience. The My Virtual Mission team is professional, responsive, and understanding, and we look forward to working with them regularly moving forward."

My Virtual Mission is the brainchild of Adam El-Agez. With 15 years of entrepreneurial experience, El-Agez was inspired to create My Virtual Mission, to keep people motivated to exercise through goal setting. Today, the platform is widely used in over 95 countries around the world. My Virtual Mission is set to be the top virtual fitness challenge provider globally due to its rapidly growing size and advanced technology.

Additional platform and customer updates will be announced in Q3 2020.

Red Frog Beach Island Resort: Conservation of Environment & Energy in Panama

Red Frog Beach Island Resort

Red Frog Beach Island Resort is the only Green Globe certified property in Panama.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Red Frog Beach Island Resort is located on Bastimentos Island, set amidst the enchanted Caribbean Archipelago of Bocas del Toro. Discover and access top rated accommodation, incredible beaches, unique tours, and soak in the serene natural Panama island landscape.

Red Frog Beach Island Resort is the only Green Globe certified property in Panama. The property has been recertified for the third consecutive year achieving a magnificent compliance score of 93%.

The resort is situated on a remote island with limited access to resources as would similar properties located on a mainland. In comparison to local Panamanian standards, Red Frog Beach has been proactive in their efforts to comply with or even go above and beyond many of the Green Globe indicators. Rather than being a disadvantage, the resort has made the most of its remote location.

Energy & Water Saving Measures

Red Frog Beach has shown itself to be a leader in conservation of the local environment and energy efficiency both locally and within the region. Onsite solar and diesel generators provide power for all of the island. A 193 kW solar energy system provides approximately 25 percent of the property’s power needs and energy efficiency measures have now been upgraded with the implementation of a Telkonet (energy management) system that remotely cools all of the villas and the installation of heat pump water heaters throughout the villas.

To conserve water, a rainwater catchment system is in place that collects about 300,000 gallons of rainwater per month. In addition, cards with eco-friendly messages are placed in guest rooms to promote energy and water conservation and reducing waste.

Conservation Efforts

Red Frog Beach has implemented various conservation projects aimed at the reforestation of previously used cattle grazing lands including investing in the planting of teak, eucalyptus and native fruit trees. The environmental focus of the resort means there are now more trees and vegetation on Bastimentos Island than a decade ago. The resort has also pledged to plant 10 trees for every single tree taken out during new construction and guests are encouraged to treat native wildlife and vegetation with respect.

Furthermore, Red Frog Beach coordinates various environmental initiatives with local communities on the island such as beach clean ups in nearby Polo Beach.

Community Initiatives

Red Frog Beach is dedicated to improving the lives of those living in the island community through its non-profit foundation and volunteer-led projects. The Foundation is responsible for improvements in public education and health and maintains the environmental integrity that sustains the unparalleled natural beauty of Bocas del Toro. In addition, the resort assists the Chamber of Tourism in the development of sustainable tourism in the region.

For further information please visit www.redfrogbeach.com

COVID-19 Update

Notice from Red Frog Beach Island Resort Management (Date: March 19, 2020):

The safety and welfare of our guests and employees are of utmost importance and of high priority. There is no question, these are extraordinary times. With this in mind, we are working tirelessly to do what is best for everyone and have been closely monitoring the changing situation around the COVID – 19. According to the guidance and recommendations provided by the Panama Department of Health, we are taking proactive measures.

With this in mind and after careful consideration, Red Frog Beach Island Resort Ownership and Management have decided to cease Resort operations temporarily to do our socially responsible part for our Resort and Community. With this decision, we will close the Resort temporarily, as a preventive measure. This is the most responsible way the Resort can continue to care for our guests and employees in a safe manner.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Coral Reef Preservation Paramount at Grand Park Kodhipparu Maldives

Coral Reefs at Grand Park Kodhipparu Maldives

Marine conservation efforts are a priority at this island resort.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Grand Park Kodhipparu Maldives was Green Globe Certified for the first time in 2020.

Marine conservation efforts are a priority at this island resort. Peter Pringle, Resident Marine Biologist at Grand Park Kodhippar details some of the key environmental initiatives at the property.

Since opening in 2017, Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives has established several coral gardening projects, where coral pieces from the House Reef are attached to purposely built underwater structures.

Upon arrival at the marina area, guests are welcomed by an artificial reef installed below the reception deck. This tunnel-shaped metal frame had several small pieces of coral attached to it during the first year of hotel operations and is now attracting additional marine life such as juvenile fishes, some already around twenty centimetres in diameter, that have developed into large colonies.

Coral nurseries have also been installed in areas of the natural House Reef. The largest of these is a mid-water rope nursery, containing 100 pieces of attached coral, that was built up over 2019 and is set in deep water near the overwater villas. Rope nurseries effectively lift attached coral pieces to grow several feet off the sea bottom, away from fine sand and competitor organisms that might normally prevent their optimal growth and survival.

Many coral nurseries use fragments taken from colonies living on the reef, removed from the ‘donor’ colony and attached in a different area to grow into a new colony (similar to how cuttings are used to propagate plants). However, as Maldivian reefs are still recovering from mass coral die-offs experienced in recent marine heat waves, we prefer to leave the surviving colonies on the reef completely intact. Instead, fragments broken off by strong waves are used for the feeding activities of marine animals or other actions. Collecting these “corals of opportunity” enhances the long-term survival prospects of each coral. We remove corals that are covered by sand and likely to die and transfer them to the mid-water rope nursery.

The resort has also devised a new interactive educational reef activity. A different style of nursery, consisting of frames holding coral fragments attached to cement pieces, was recently established and allows guests to actively participate in coral gardening. Coral fragments are attached to cone-shaped cement pieces above water using a special waterproof glue. Participants are able to swim their ‘baby coral’ out from shore to place it in the nursery. According to Peter, participants can better understand how coral colonies live and grow from the physical action of planting a coral, something not always easy to explain by simply using diagrams and pictures.

Ultimately, after several years growth in the nursery environment the corals are ready for transplanting. While coral gardening is certainly not a replacement for conservation actions needed for the continued survival of coral reefs, such as reducing carbon emissions to lessen climate change effects and improving water quality, it is constructive in increasing awareness of reef conservation and coral biology.

Gabriel Gaby Btesh Reveals Latest Construction Industry Innovations

Innovation-led construction company boss Gabriel Gaby Btesh shines a spotlight on his home nation of Panama's thriving construction industry.

PANAMA CITY, PANAMA, April 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A renowned construction company owner from Panama City, Panama, Gabriel Gaby Btesh continues to remain at the very forefront of the nation's thriving construction industry. Bolstered by continued innovation, today largely supported by the latest advances in technology more generally, Btesh offers a closer look at the topic.

"From digital measurement devices to construction drones, innovation has transformed the construction industry, particularly in recent years," suggests Gabriel Gaby Btesh, speaking from his office in Panama City, Panama.

Dating back as far as the mid-19th century, mechanization was an early turning point for construction industry innovation, according to Gabriel Gaby Btesh. "Very early earth-moving equipment, for example," says the expert, "marked a point of major progress for those in the field."

In the years since, Gabriel Gaby Btesh goes on to point out, everything from computer-aided design to off-site fabrication and modular construction have seen the construction industry become ever more efficient and advanced.

Based in Panama City, Panama, Btesh is a more than 30 year veteran of the nation's thriving construction industry. Today at the helm of the family construction business originally established by his father, Jack Btesh, Gabriel Gaby Btesh has long been an advocate for innovation. The construction company boss has also advocated for more socially conscious approaches to construction, where an emphasis is placed on well-being and increased standards of living.

Panama, officially the Republic of Panama, is renowned for a number of incredible construction and engineering feats. The most famous of these, without a doubt, is the Panama Canal, says Gabriel Gaby Btesh. "First completed more than a century ago, and connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the Panama Canal remains one of the so-called seven wonders of the modern world," he reveals, "according to the American Society of Civil Engineers."

Initially finished in 1914, ongoing improvement and widening work on the canal continues today, with the engineering marvel now a world-famous conduit for maritime trade. "It is," says Gabriel Gaby Btesh, "arguably the single most important thing for which the Republic of Panama is known globally, at least in terms of engineering, and is testament to our nation's incredible construction industry."

So, where next for innovation in construction, both in Panama and across the rest of Central and South America, North America, and worldwide? "Robotics, I believe, will begin to play an ever-larger part in construction across the board in the coming years," Gabriel Gaby Btesh suggests.

"Elsewhere, I also expect to see significant investment into artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies," he adds, wrapping up, "which, particularly combined with robotics, drones, and similar, could mark the biggest area of industry innovation since the advent of mechanization in the mid-1800s."
