    San Francisco, CA (PRBuzz.com) March 1, 2013 -- The kitchen and bathroom are often the most important rooms in making a house a home. They are both a private and a shared space, requiring design and functionality while having a premium on the details that make them welcoming, relaxing environments. Binns is a Canadian company providing customized kitchens and bathrooms, and recently displayed the BeauxArts.02 kitchen in partnership with SieMatic at the Interior Design Show 2013. The Interior Design Show is Canada's design fair featuring the newest and most innovative in international and Canadian products and designs presented by 300 exhibitors.

    The guiding principles of the SieMatic BeauxArts.02 kitchen are clearly defined on the Binns website as: "design using tension; a juxtaposition of unexpected elements to tell your own personal style and story."

    The custom kitchens are created by Binns' designers in creative collaboration with the client, and use a variety of distinctive features. The SieMatic BeauxArts.02 uses combinations of stone-finished countertops, glossy cabinet doors and bevelled matt metal fronts, which contrast with the furniture elements of the rich ebony walnut pantry to create unique spaces inspired by unconventional kitchen elements.

    The custom bathroom designs on offer demonstrate extraordinary variety and individuality, from almost fantastical high-sided freestanding bathtubs to floor-level open-plan shower spaces. The meshing of classical and contemporary furniture styles and integrated countertops has sparked excitement among industry professionals, continuing Binns' award-winning reputation.

    "For those looking for custom kitchens in Toronto, there couldn't be a better choice than Binns. Our recent showcase at the Interior Design Show has reaffirmed our dedication to creativity and individuality in making a functional space one of creative design and personal expression. Our kitchens are an entirely different experience, prioritizing originality and unique layouts while still providing elegant and ergonomic functionality. The design we demonstrated at the Toronto Interior Design show was extremely well received by experts and the public alike, and we hope to be installing similar designs in homes across Ontario soon," explains Keith Binns, Director of Business Development.

    About Binns: Binns has certified kitchen and bathroom designers on staff. They have knowledge and expertise, and have won many national and international design awards for creating beautiful, functional spaces. The Toronto showroom has over 5,000 square feet and our second location has over 6,000 square feet, both with fully decorated kitchen and bath displays.

    Huntington Beach Reads Hosts
    Free Filming of 'Bully' March 13
    In City's Central Library

    Movie primes free live appearance of Jay Asher, author of '13 Reasons Why', March 21 at HB High School Gym

    HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.,  (PRBuzz.com) March 1, 2013 -- HBReads, (www.hbreads.org), the not-for-profit organization in Huntington Beach that promotes an understanding of diversity to young and old alike, is hosting a free filming March 13 of "Bully", a cinematic, character-driven documentary.

    Beginning at 7 p.m. in Rooms C & D of the library at 7111 Talbert Ave., the film, which won the American Film Award, explores the lives of bullied children, revealing the problem that transcends racial-economic barriers.

    It documents the responses of teachers and administrators to aggressive behaviors that defy "kids will be kids" clichés. Also, the film captures a growing movement among parents and youths to change how bullying is handled in schools, communities and in society as a whole.

    It is the latest in a series of special events leading up to the March 21 live appearance of Jay Asher, author of the New York Times best-seller, "13 Reasons Why", which has been encouraged reading in Huntington Beach schools this academic year. It consists of a series of transcripts of audiotapes recorded by 16-year-old Hannah Baker before she committed suicide. Included are the reactions of a high school classmate who listens to them. The tapes reveal 13 separate anecdotes about classmates whose actions the girl blames for her death.

    The book was on The New York Times children's books best-seller list and has been published in 29 countries. According to one Barnes & Noble executive, "Kids like to read about situations that are worse than theirs and figure out that 'O.K., my life isn't so bad."

    Asher's exclusive visit to Southern California includes a reception from 4-6 p.m. at the Huntington Beach Art Center, 538 Main St. (cost: $50), and the free lecture at 7 p.m. in the Huntington Beach High School gymnasium, 1905 Main St. For reservations to the reception, visit http://www.hbreads.org/reserve.htm.

    VALETTA, MALTA (PRBuzz.com) March 1, 2013 -- Electronic Shipping Solutions, the leading provider of electronic shipping documents is pleased to announce that Cargill has commenced operational use of CargoDocs for Bulkers on a grain shipment from Houston, US to Veracruz, Mexico onboard the M/V UBC BREMEN.

    eB/Ls were drafted by Cargill's Reserve Terminal and reviewed on ESS's eDocs Exchange by the carrier, UBC, in New York; Cargill Inc., the shipper in Minneapolis; and Cargill de Mexico, the receiver in Santa Fe Mexico City, before being signed electronically and issued to Cargill Inc.  All eB/Ls were produced back to the carrier within 19 minutes of issuance, ensuring that the cargo was not discharged to a Letter of Indemnity (LOI) notwithstanding the extremely short sailing time of just two days. 

    ESS's entry into the dry cargo market came at the request of Cargill in 2012.  The two companies collaborated on developing agreed eDocs processes and approaching Mexican Customs to ensure the output was acceptable to them.  Cargill successfully tested CargoDocs for Bulkers over a period of two months before signing an operational pan-Group agreement to adopt CargoDocs across all market segments, i.e., Bulkers, Tankers, ARA Barges and Liner. 

    Cargill has already commenced work to rollout CargoDocs across various tanker trades in Europe, agri cargo trade routes from North and South America to the Caribs and Europe and Petroleum Barge Trades in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp area.  The company is also preparing for a Trial of CargoDocs for Liner later this year.  Cargill adopted its first ESS Solution in 2010 when it started using ESS's eSDS Solution for REACH / GHS compliance. 

    Ernst Herger, Global eBLs Project Manager of Cargill, said:
    "The rapidly increasing adoption of CargoDocs for Tankers by major oil companies and large petroleum trading houses gave us the confidence that CargoDocs is the appropriate solution for Cargill to change from paper to electronic documents. Through our unique connectivity across commodities within our integrated Trade Execution group, it was a small step to build the bridge to our dry cargo business. Our Trade Execution and shipping specialists worked closely together with ESS during recent months to adapt CargoDocs for the dry bulk cargo trade. After nearly 150 years of paper Bills of Ladings, this first electronic BL represents a historical milestone for us. We would also like to express our appreciation to the owners of MV UBC Bremen for their spontaneous collaboration."

    Alexander Goulandris, Chief Executive Officer of ESS, said:
    "We are delighted to have been able to work with Cargill on successfully extending CargoDocs to cover dry bulk shipments, and look forward to working with them on their aggressive rollout plan.  The speed of the transition into the bulker market with just a few months of testing, is testament to our dedicated and uniquely knowledgeable team plus the 7+ years of industry-wide testing and operational use of CargoDocs in the Energy market."

    About Cargill
    Cargill is an international producer and marketer of food, agricultural, financial and industrial products and services. Founded in 1865, the privately held company employs 142,000 people in 65 countries.

    "Marketing is the key. But there is smart marketing and not so smart marketing, Mr. Mauresmo said. "Knowing the difference is what separates success from failure."

    The book offers proven tips starting with titles and a cover.

    "You have just a few seconds to catch a reader's attention. If you can't catch the reader, he's on to something else and chances are he'll never come back," Mauresmo said. "These simple tips will turn a ho-hum title and cover into something that grabs a reader and won't let go."

    The book also discusses how to market and promote the author, which is integral to the success of the book. Mr. Mauresmo said that people often buy a book because of the author.

    "This is an important and overlooked part of writing a book. Who are you and why are you writing a book? How can you tell people about yourself?

    None of the tips in the book violate Amazon's terms of service, so there is no worry about doing something which could get the book kicked off Amazon or the author sanctioned.

    "Amazon is the world's bookstore now. It's important to stay on their good side. This book puts you on their good side and keeps you there," he said.

    Among other things the book includes:

    • How to create PDF Documents and Why You Need Them.

    • How to Build an Online Presence Fast!

    • YouTube: Create a Commercial the Easy Way.

    • Why You Need a Website.

    Reader reviews so far are uniformly positive.

    Paperless Software Platform Brings Additional Convenience for Customers and Savings of Time and Money for East Baton Rouge Parish's Oldest Chartered Bank

    Providence, RI  (PRBuzz.com) March 1, 2013 -- Andera, a Software-as-a-Service company that simplifies account opening and lending for banks and credit unions, announced that Bank of Zachary has upgraded to oFlows, the first totally paperless platform for online loan applications.

    Founded in 1904, the Bank of Zachary is the oldest chartered bank in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana. With three branches and assets of approximately $192 million, the bank takes pride in meeting the financial needs of its southern Louisiana communities while delivering superior service to its customers.

    Bank of Zachary's most recent initiative in improving its customers' banking experience was the launch of a new online banking system with the oFlows platform as its centerpiece. According to President and Chief Executive Officer Preston L. Kennedy, the move was a logical step in the bank's continuing quest to strengthen the bonds between it and its customers.

    "We realize that without customers, we have no business. But our goal is not to simply have customers. It is to form relationships that survive in good times and bad, from generation to generation," stated Kennedy.

    "Banking customers have a wide array of institutions to choose from. To remain successful, we must differentiate ourselves from the competition, and the best way to do that is through superior customer service. Our choice of Andera enables us to do that, and by eliminating paper from the loan application account opening process, it saves both time for our staff and customers and money for the bank."

    Andera CEO Charlie Kroll remarked, "Consumers want their banking relationships to offer the same ease and convenience that they experience when buying goods and services in stores and on line. Technology like oFlows makes that possible. It bridges the gap between these consumers' rising expectations and financial institutions' ability to meet those expectations."

    "In moving to oFlows, the Bank of Zachary is making it easy for their loyal customers to conduct their banking business from wherever they happen to be and at any time of day or night."

    About Andera
    Andera pioneered online account opening in 2004 and now offers a multichannel platform to over 550 bank and credit union customers. Andera's oFlows platform radically simplifies account opening and lending in branches, online, out in the field, and over the phone. The oFlows platform is a four-time winner of the "Best in Show" award at Finovate.

    Recently cited as "One of the Top Ten Tech Companies to Watch" by American Banker, Andera is privately held, headquartered in Providence, and has offices in San Francisco and New York. For more information, visit www.andera.com or register for an upcoming webinar.

    VALETTA, MALTA (PRBuzz.com) March 1, 2013 -- Electronic Shipping Solutions, the leading provider of electronic shipping documents is pleased to announce that Cargill has commenced operational use of CargoDocs for Bulkers on a grain shipment from Houston, US to Veracruz, Mexico onboard the M/V UBC BREMEN.

    eB/Ls were drafted by Cargill's Reserve Terminal and reviewed on ESS's eDocs Exchange by the carrier, UBC, in New York; Cargill Inc., the shipper in Minneapolis; and Cargill de Mexico, the receiver in Santa Fe Mexico City, before being signed electronically and issued to Cargill Inc.  All eB/Ls were produced back to the carrier within 19 minutes of issuance, ensuring that the cargo was not discharged to a Letter of Indemnity (LOI) notwithstanding the extremely short sailing time of just two days.

    ESS's entry into the dry cargo market came at the request of Cargill in 2012.  The two companies collaborated on developing agreed eDocs processes and approaching Mexican Customs to ensure the output was acceptable to them.  Cargill successfully tested CargoDocs for Bulkers over a period of two months before signing an operational pan-Group agreement to adopt CargoDocs across all market segments, i.e., Bulkers, Tankers, ARA Barges and Liner.

    Cargill has already commenced work to rollout CargoDocs across various tanker trades in Europe, agri cargo trade routes from North and South America to the Caribs and Europe and Petroleum Barge Trades in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp area.  The company is also preparing for a Trial of CargoDocs for Liner later this year.  Cargill adopted its first ESS Solution in 2010 when it started using ESS's eSDS Solution for REACH / GHS compliance.

    Ernst Herger, Global eBLs Project Manager of Cargill, said:
    "The rapidly increasing adoption of CargoDocs for Tankers by major oil companies and large petroleum trading houses gave us the confidence that CargoDocs is the appropriate solution for Cargill to change from paper to electronic documents. Through our unique connectivity across commodities within our integrated Trade Execution group, it was a small step to build the bridge to our dry cargo business. Our Trade Execution and shipping specialists worked closely together with ESS during recent months to adapt CargoDocs for the dry bulk cargo trade. After nearly 150 years of paper Bills of Ladings, this first electronic BL represents a historical milestone for us. We would also like to express our appreciation to the owners of MV UBC Bremen for their spontaneous collaboration."

    Alexander Goulandris, Chief Executive Officer of ESS, said:
    "We are delighted to have been able to work with Cargill on successfully extending CargoDocs to cover dry bulk shipments, and look forward to working with them on their aggressive rollout plan.  The speed of the transition into the bulker market with just a few months of testing, is testament to our dedicated and uniquely knowledgeable team plus the 7+ years of industry-wide testing and operational use of CargoDocs in the Energy market."

Founded in 1865, the privately held company employs 142,000 people in 65 countries.

    Spring 2013 Means One Thing: The Re-Release of Bongwater on Digital Platforms!

    Hollywood, CA (PRBuzz.com) March 1, 2013 -- Bongwater is a cult classic that is being re-released on digital platforms in spring of this year. For the first time ever, Bongwater will be available on iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and video on demand. In the grand tradition of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Reality Bites, and Dazed and Confused, comes the epic slacker comedy Bongwater. The film has an amazing cast - Luke Wilson, Jack Black, Brittany Murphy, Scott Caan, Alicia Witt, Jamie Kennedy, Andy Dick, and Jeremy Sisto.

    In Bongwater, struggling artist David (Luke Wilson) has big plans for his life - except he can't exactly remember what they are. When slinky, sassy Serena (Alicia Witt) waltzes into his life things take a definite turn for the better, that is, until his house burns down and she bolts to New York with a wannabe rock star (Jamie Kennedy). While Serena frolics back east, lovesick David gets by with a little help from his friends, like singing farmer (Jack Black), hilariously sarcastic sidekick (Andy Dick), and oversexed rich girl (Brittany Murphy). If Serena ever returns, someone's gonna get a rude awakening, as this raucous comedy hurtles toward an outrageous and unexpected finish!

    Reviews have been great for Bongwater, and its sure not to disappoint the new crowd of viewers that it may have this time around during its digital re-release. One Bongwater review says, "The title notwithstanding, this drug-laden laugh trip is more Reality Bites than Up in Smoke. David (a sweetly earnest Wilson) is a pot dealer with half-baked ambitions of becoming an artist; Serena (Witt) is his nuttily domineering love interest. Though the pair's lack of real chemistry makes the cuddly ending feel tacked on, the hysterical drug-buddy performances of Brittany Murphy, Andy Dick, and Jack Black really make this joint roll."

    A fan said, "...I watch a great deal of movies and this is in my top 5 favorite movies. This is a movie that I can always watch. It's a smart stony movie that always delivers. There is a ton of very subtle, incredibly funny humor. Jack Black's role is very funny, and this is my favorite of all of Luke Wilson's movies..."

    Bongwater is one of those awesome stoner movies that reels fans in and becomes a classic. Learn more about Bongwater on its iTunes page - Bongwater/iTunes
