Marina at Faro Blanco Resort & Yacht Club gives modern boaters a new destination in the Florida Keys

Marathon, Florida (PRWEB) October 07, 2014

Its not every day that a marina is built in the Florida Keys, a protected national treasure, but this winter boaters will have an exciting new destination where they can dock their boat for a day, week or the season. Boaters will easily find the 74-slip Faro Blanco Resort & Yacht Club because of the iconic lighthouse, for which the resort is named.

Marathon for the first time will join the ranks of yachting destinations. The community is known for its laid-back atmosphere and proximity to family friendly attractions and the nightlife of Key West, located about a 50-minute drive south.

The state-of-the-art Faro Blanco marina will begin accepting vessels on Dec. 16, 2014 when the resorts hotel – a Hyatt Place – is scheduled to begin checking in guests.

Before it officially opens, Barbara DeLollis of The Social Suite sat down with the Faro Blanco Marina & Yacht Club General Manager Alain Giudice, who explained what the marina means to luxury vessel owners who expect the highest quality.

Familiar with the needs of both yacht and superyacht owners, Giudice is an international marina expert who has helped create and manage some of the best marinas in the world.

A native of France, Giudice is a former marina operations director of the Atlantis Resort Paradise Island in Nassau, Bahamas, The El Conquistador Resort in Puerto Rico, and the Boca Raton Resort and Club in Boca Raton, Fla.; he also has overseen the construction of marinas across Asia, the Middle East and Europe for Camper & Nicholsons Marinas.

Q Lets kick things off by talking about consumers. What do todays boaters want in a marina such as Faro Blanco Resort and Yacht Club?

A Todays boaters expect a high level of customer service and amenities where they can enjoy a great hotel and restaurants along with state-of-the-art marina facilities. Other components that a first-class Marina such as ours will offer are safety, privacy, entertainment, activities, crew facilities, parking, concierge service, wireless communications and data network, convenient fuel and pump out services, adequate dockside hookup. Its magical seeing Faro Blanco come to life for this reason. Weve designed it around the needs of consumers of today and tomorrow.

Q Will the Faro Blanco marina be completely new?

A Well, yes and no. Were building the marina and resort on the same site as the iconic Faro Blanco resort that had its heyday in the 1970s and 1980s. Hurricane Wilma in 2005 had destroyed the docks, so were building the marina – as well as the Hyatt Place hotel, waterfront restaurant and other facilities – from scratch. In other words, its old and new at the same time. You can feel the sense of anticipation building as we move ahead with construction because were bringing a landmark that was beloved by so many generations back to life.

Q What is the biggest advantage of building a new marina today?

A Many of the old marinas have to adjust their offerings to accommodate the physical aspect of todays vessels. We have the advantage of designing specifically for the modern vessel and boater. The majority of existing marinas were designed in the 1950s and 1960s, when the boats were smaller. Even 10 years ago, boats were much smaller and were not as wide as they are today.

Q How different will the Faro Blanco marina and its facilities be compared to the former version?

A Its like night and day! In the old days, you had a ship store and you sold ice. But today, marinas are now becoming destination resorts. This is what our emphasis is with Faro Blanco. The level of the service that we will be providing our guests will be equal to the best resort and destination marinas. The state-of-the-art marina facility will be the best in the entire Keys.

Q For boaters, having ample electricity and fuel service is key. What services can they expect at Faro Blancos marina?

A The electricity requirements for boats are more elaborate now than they used to be, so we will provide 30amp, 50amp and 100amp electrical hookup. Additional services such as haul out, land storage and service repairs will be available from Marathon Marina, the nearby boatyard facility.

Q What can people do when they dock at Faro Blanco marina?

A During the day, they can certainly fish and at the same time, watch for dolphins splashing alongside their vessels. Marathon is also popular with scuba divers and it has plenty of family friendly attractions such as the Turtle Hospital and Dolphin Research Center. We also expect our guests will also relax on property, which is why we decided to build two pools – instead of one – at the adjacent Hyatt Place hotel. Theres also a fitness center if they want to work out.

Q If guests leave the property, they can reach Key West in less than an hour. But how can they get there?

A Car rental offices are available at the Marathon airport located less than 10 minutes away from Faro Blanco.

Q Do you have a personal favorite place to recommend?

A Coming from Europe, Im always intrigued by history. So I personally enjoy walking across the original, 100-year-old Seven Mile Bridge, which is just a few minutes away. It has a great story behind it that involves the history of the railway system here.

Q For boaters coming from parts north such as the Florida Panhandle, Faro Blanco could make a convenient stop before heading south. How far is Faro Blanco to the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas, one example of a destination where people might go next?

A Well, as you know, it depends on the type of vessel, speed, draft and sea conditions anything from 10 to 15 hours.

Author Rick Chiantaretto Re-Releases Facade of Shadows on Friday the 13th With a New Press and New Edits

Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) June 13, 2014

BernardBooks announced today that award-winning author Rick Chiantaretto, who only releases a book on Friday the 13th, has revisited his writing roots with his first novel Facade of Shadows and re-released the novel with a new blanket of edits since the book was fist discovered and released when he was in high school.

This book was my high school novel that was picked up by a small press. Getting it published so young was really inspiring at that age. This novel is often a point of interest for teachers and educators, and inspiring to youth, said Rick Chiantaretto. Since releasing my second novel, Death of the Body, a dark fantasy, my fans have clamored for more and so I decided to re-edit with a fresh face and re-release it, while maintaining the juvenile tone and feel to stay true to the young adult genre.

Facade of Shadows is available at Amazon.

Praise for Facade of Shadows

“Rick Chiantaretto might be a name new to you, but you will definitely run across his name again. An emerging writer who works with old myths and legends and folklore of a spiritual nature, Rick manages to weave entertaining and telling tales. Keep an eye out for Rick Chiantaretto.” ~Nancy Kilpatrick, author of The Goth Bible: A Compendium for the Darkly Inclined.

“A unique and entertaining mix of classic vampire lore and Egyptology with a healthy dose of Buffy and Blade. From a small-town school to the middle of the Sahara desert and beyond, this ambitious and expansive novel will take you on a journey from normality to the edge of oblivion, and leave you gasping for breath.” ~David Moody, author of AUTUMN and HATER.

Rick Chiantarettos dark fantasy Death of the Body was chosen as one of Indie AuthorLands 50 Self-Published Books Worth Reading for 2013/2014.

Delena Epstein is Proud to Announce the Release of her New Book: Judgment

Prescott, Ariz. (PRWEB) June 17, 2014

Author Delena Epstein takes readers into the life of Amanda Morgan, a half-demon, half-angel who has chosen to serve man over God or Lucifer in her grave new responsibility as Guardian to mankind. In the third and final book of the Homeless trilogy, Amanda finds that this arrangement endangers her when angry demons place a bounty on her head. Although she is immortal, it doesnt mean they cant inflict pain. And in an effort to save the man she loves, her heart is pierced with an angels sword.

After months of recuperating in heaven, Amanda returns to Earth to resume her duties. Along with her new job description come supernatural powers: invisibility, telepathy, levitation, wings that permit her to fly, chronokinesiscreating fire and opening the veil of the physical world. But the sacrifices to help man are nearly impossible to endure. She has given up art, her greatest passion, and she cannot consummate her relationship with her best friend and love of her life, Father Samuel OFlannery, Gods liaison.

Her newest gift, the power of creation, makes her as powerful as God. Afraid of what she might do, she wants this power removed, but she refuses to speak directly to him.

Destined to spend eternity on Earth alone Amanda throws herself into making Lucifers bargains, for everyone that rejects the offer, God can choose a soul to free from hell.

As Amanda continues to present bargains to people who must choose between heavenly or earthly desires, she begins to question these agreements. Why should people who have no chance in life be tempted to succeed and sent to hell?

Amanda rages at God, and her search for answers eventually brings her to the Archangels of Judgment, and finally, into the almightys presence himself.

No one is immune from Judgment Day.

PRIMAGAS Now Protects Remote Access to its Corporate Network Using SecurAccess Tokenless Two-factor Authentication

Krefeld/London (PRWEB UK) 25 September 2014

The company PRIMAGAS, which is based in Krefeld in Germany, supplies liquefied gas to approximately 80,000 customers across the country, including private households, businesses and public institutions. Safety first, this top priority of PRIMAGAS does not only apply for energy carrier and technical installations. The same care is required with regard to access to the company’s corporate network – if this were not secured sufficiently, sensitive data could fall into the hands of cyber-criminals, who could cause damage as a result. In order to protect its IT infrastructure, PRIMAGAS therefore introduced the SecurAccess two-factor authentication solution from SecurEnvoy. With this, users identify themselves using their personal login information and also an additional numerical passcode that they receive via SMS or e-mail.

PRIMAGAS ensures timely and reliable deliveries to customers via its nationwide transport logistics network in Germany, which features storage tanks with the capacity to hold several thousand tons of liquefied gas. In addition, around 230 office and field staff and more than 3,000 sales partners provide technical customer service advice regarding all matters relating to the liquefied gas. In order to allow (field) staff, business unit managers and external partners to securely access the corporate network, PRIMAGAS installed the SecurAccess software solution.

Webinar and testing made the choice easy

A webinar held by the SecurEnvoy distributor ProSoft provided the decision makers at PRIMAGAS with more information about the tokenless two-factor authentication solution. The fact that no additional tokens are required was crucial – rather than dedicated tokens, mobile phones or smartphones that are already available are used. These receive an SMS or e-mail containing a passcode, which a user enters in addition to his/her username and password when logging into the network. The user thereby provides dual proof of his/her identity. After the product had been tested within the company environment, it was installed within half a day during normal operations by the consulting and service provision company SPIRIT/21.

“Our employees and partners previously logged in using only usernames and passwords – which is not enough to protect our sensitive data against unauthorised access,” comments Christian Stichmann, application manager at PRIMAGAS. “With SecurAccess we have found a cost-effective alternative that provides a dual layer of security access. The product impressed us right away, and we had no need to take a look at other solutions of this kind. We have not regretted our decision; all the SecurAccess users are very satisfied. For an investment of around 5,000 we have thereby strengthened our security shield significantly.”

A video showing how SecurAccess works is available on the SecurEnvoy YouTube channel. People interested in installing SecurAccess can register on the manufacturer’s website to obtain a free 30-day test version.

About SecurEnvoy plc:

SecurEnvoy is the creator of patented tokenless solutions for two-factor authentication. Millions of global users already benefit from the fastest mobile authentication process available that doesnt require a token. The process uses commonly available devices like mobile and smartphones, tablets and laptops to provide the passcode required for authentication. Even without mobile phone reception or an internet connection, the user can obtain the code via a voice call or enable identification using one-swipe technology, which is based on a QR code scan. The product range of the company based in London (UK), Frankfurt (D), New York and San Diego (USA) includes the SecurAccess solution. The administration tools can easily be integrated into existing IT infrastructures and allow administrators to add up to 100,000 users per hour. SC Magazine awarded the solution Best Buy and the company has been classed as a leading visionary in Gartners Magic Quadrant. SecurEnvoy has a customer base in all vertical segments, including banking, finance, insurance, government, manufacturing, marketing, retail, telecoms, charity, law and construction. The authentication expert collaborates with partners such as AEP, Astaro, Cisco, Checkpoint, Citrix, Juniper, F5, Palo Alto, Sophos, etc. See for further information.
