Host your space on Airbnb this holiday season

YourUpdateTV

As we’re about to tie up 2022 with a bow, now is the perfect time to Host your place on Airbnb to earn some extra income this holiday season. Hosts across the US have been sharing their spaces on Airbnb for well over a decade and it is proving to be a vital tool to earn extra income. Recently, Airbnb Superhosts, Sophia and Tyler Martin conducted a satellite media tour to talk about how hosting has helped them earn extra income. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/2QPm3bc07nw With Airbnb’s 2022 Winter Release, which introduced Airbnb Setup and updated AirCover for Hosts, it is now easier than ever for new Hosts to Airbnb their place, with plenty of time to start earning before the end of the year. In fact, many are already taking advantage: Since the release through November 22, Airbnb has seen more than 1 million distinct visitors to the Host landing page, up by more than 90 percent compared to the week prior. US Hosts earned $4 billion during the 2021 holiday season Hosting is a great way to offset the costs of holiday gift giving, travel and more. During last year’s holiday season 1, US Hosts’ total earnings reached almost $4 billion, while global Hosts netted a total of more than $8.5 billion during the same period. On top of that, Hosts in the US received more than $600 million between last Christmas and New Year’s alone. In Q3 2022, total earnings for US Hosts surpassed $6.8 billion while global Hosts reached over $16.8 billion, indicating that the opportunities for Hosts remain strong. There’s still time to get in on the action: Half of all listings activated and booked in Q3 2022 received their first booking within three days. The gift of experienced advice and new protections With the all-new Airbnb Setup, new Hosts receive one-to-one guidance from a Superhost, meaning that new Hosts are matched with Superhosts in their area to guide them through the entire hosting process by phone, video call, or chat. Additionally, they have the option to host an experienced guest (a guest with a stellar track record on Airbnb) as their first guest. Lastly, new Hosts have one-tap access to specially trained Community Support agents. Together with AirCover for Hosts, now with even more top-to-bottom protection – from guest identity verification, reservation screening, to $3M damage protections, including coverage for cars, boats, art and valuables – now is the perfect time to get started hosting – potentially have the holidays pay for themselves. To find out more about the Airbnb 2022 Winter Release and how to become a host, visit Airbnb. 1.Spanning November 1, 2021 through January 31, 2022 About Sophia and Tyler Sophia and Tyler are Airbnb Superhosts based in San Francisco. They are natural hosts, who enjoy hosting dinner parties and get togethers - they even hosted their wedding reception in their own backyard! They started their journey as Airbnb Hosts when they grew out of their 650 sq ft condo during the height of the pandemic. During their hunt for a new home, they fell in love with a historic house that was above their price point. They decided to supplement their mortgage by Airbnb-ing part of the home and turned it into their side hustle. Hosting has helped them pay off debts, save for their wedding, and they enjoy the added bonus of meeting amazing people from all over the world! About Airbnb Airbnb was born in 2007 when two Hosts welcomed three guests to their San Francisco home and has since grown to 4 million Hosts who have welcomed more than 1 billion guest arrivals in almost every country across the globe. Every day, Hosts offer one-of-a-kind stays and unique Experiences that make it possible for guests to experience the world in a more authentic, connected way.

Last-Minute Holiday Gifting

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/_RWWbVQdx3o The holiday scramble is something many consumers know all too well. Whether they’ve procrastinated on shopping or are crossing off the final names on their lists, Emmy-Award Winning Television Host and Lifestyle Expert, Marisa Brahney has compiled a last-minute gift list to help those looking for presents ahead of the big day. GIFT OF HEALTH, WELLNESS, AND ANCESTRY: Brahney’s first gift idea comes down to living a happier and healthier life. 23andMe gives people access to their DNA, everything from health, to traits, to ancestry. “When you take a 23andMe test you’ll get genetic insights backed by science to help you take greater control of your health. This includes over 150 personalized reports. You’ll also get a deeper look at your ancestry, with over 2,000 regions and population-specific reports,” says Brahney. For more information, go to 23andme.com. Social Media: Facebook: @ 23andMe Instagram: @ 23andMe Twitter: @ 23andMe GIFT OF SWEETS: Chocolate, specifically Lindt chocolate, also makes Brahney’s list. She says, “It’s perfect to share with loved ones, make colleagues smile, or simply indulge on your own during this busy time of year.” Lindt Chocolate, the world-renowned Swiss chocolatier, has an extensive holiday collection, including chocolate figures perfect for stocking stuffers and seasonal chocolate gift boxes. However, the lifestyle expert recommends the brand’s holiday classic, LINDOR truffles. Each LINDOR truffle is finely crafted with a chocolate shell that envelops an irresistibly smooth, melting truffle filling. When you break the truffle’s shell, LINDOR starts to melt and so will you. The iconic LINDOR truffle was developed more than 50 years ago as holiday tree ornament. Today, it is a festive, favorite way to remind a friend or loved one how much they mean to you this holiday season. She points out that they’re available in classic milk chocolate and other seasonal flavors, such as white chocolate peppermint, in festive bags or gift boxes. For more information, go to www.lindtusa.com, or find them at retailers nationwide. Facebook (@lindtchocolateusa): https://www.facebook.com/lindtchocolateusa Instagram (@lindt_usa): https://www.instagram.com/lindt_usa/ GIFT OF MONEY: Data shows that receiving cash can be the preferred gift for many during the holidays, especially with the post-holiday economic forecast. Brahney’s final gift idea is to move on from the age-old faux pas of giving cash as a gift. Venmo and PayPal provide a quick and easy way to send money or digital gift cards. With PayPal and Venmo, “You’re able to manage holiday group expenses like splitting a cab to a party or sending a cash gift to your friends and family to spend however they’d like,” says Brahney. Gifters are also able to add a personal touch with an array of gift wraps including a limited-edition custom gift wrap from Mariah Carey, which adds sparkle to those last-minute gifts sent on Venmo. Sign up online or download Venmo and PayPal through the Apple or Google Play app stores.

Holiday Fire Prevention Checklist

YourUpdateTV

The holidays are all about celebrating traditions with family and friends. Between choosing the right gifts and preparing delicious meals, you have plenty on your plate. Ensuring that you and your loved ones are safe can be an additional stress. Recently, Home Expert at Thumbtack, David Steckel, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss tips to help homeowners navigate peak residential fire season. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/3IdPKUr7D8E Thumbtack, the app used by millions of homeowners across the country to care for their homes, unveiled a new “ Holiday Fire Prevention Checklist ” that allows homeowners to check their home’s fire risk, and seamlessly book a home service professional to help prevent fires before they happen. The “Holiday Fire Prevention Checklist” highlights the top projects homeowners should tackle before the holidays and which have the highest risk of starting a fire if left unaddressed, including: Hang holiday lights ( hire a pro ): A professional installer can take this festive (but time-consuming) task off your hands — and ensure you’re not overloading your circuits. Sweep chimney ( hire a pro ): Annual inspections and cleanings are a must to minimize fire hazards, manage creosote buildup, and prevent gas leaks. Maintain gas fireplace (hire a pro): These fireplaces need regular maintenance too — connections can corrode over time, leading to potential gas leaks. Test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms ( DIY ): Working alarms are crucial. Testing yearly and replacing every 7 years is the best way to make sure you're protected. Clean dryer vents ( hire a pro ): Lint buildup causes about 3,000 house fires yearly. Cleaning your dryer’s exhaust pipe can help prevent a fire and improve efficiency. Inspect fire extinguishers ( DIY ): Always keep a working dry chemical fire extinguisher (the dial should be in the “green region”) easily accessible and near the kitchen. Trim trees ( hire a pro ): Keeping your trees trimmed prolongs the life of your roof, cuts down on potential fire hazards, and can prevent wildlife from moving in. Deep clean gas range ( DIY or hire a pro): Built-up grease can be a big fire hazard — especially with a gas range. Be sure to clean it out every 3-6 months. Ensure space heaters are not a hazard (DIY): Only run space heaters in a clear, hazard-free space — and never overnight. Do an electrical check (hire a pro): Prevent fire hazards by having a pro check your property (inside and out) for faulty electrical wiring and overloaded circuits. Maintain Christmas tree (DIY): Make sure to water your tree, unplug it at night, or set a timer to avoid fires — artificial trees are also a great alternative. Visit www.thumbtack.com/content/fire-prevention to learn more about potential fire hazards this holiday season, to see how your home ranks on the safety scale, and to book a pro to ensure you’re ready to tackle the holiday season — worry-free.

Helmet Catch Hero David Tyree on Tom Brady: His Ability is “Insane”

Betting.US

David Tyree, the former wideout for the New York Giants, has spoken about his former rival Tom Brady in the lead-up to the 15-year anniversary of their iconic showdown. The Super Bowl XLII game would see the New England Patriots' undefeated and untied run come to an end, largely in part to Tyree’s staggering Helmet Catch play. Before the catch, Tyree mostly played in specials games. He had only four receptions for 35 yards and had no touchdowns. He produced a stellar performance in Super Bowl XLII, catching a touchdown in the late stages of the game before catching Eli Manning’s 32-yard throw against his helmet with less than two minutes remaining. The catch was instrumental in securing the Giants a match-winning touchdown. This would become Tyrell’s last catch in the NFL, and he retired after the 2009 season. In contrast, Tom Brady’s career has continued into the 2022 season. In a recent interview, Tyree expressed admiration for Brady’s talent. “It’s really insane when you think about it,” Tyree said. The former wideout mused about Brady’s almost inhuman talent, saying, “whether he has a mutant or a wolverine gene or something behind the TB12 products, I don’t know what’s going on. That dude’s insane, but he is that much of a high-level competitor.” Tyree also reflected on the importance of the week 17 showdown between the Giants and Patriots and its relation to the Super Bowl game. “It was an opportunity to knock down a titan in like the 12th round, right? And so, we went for it… I should have scored a touchdown in that game.” “I stumbled, and it tripped me up on the goal line.” He expressed his gratitude that he was “able to get that moment of redemption in the Super Bowl.” At the same time, Tyree acknowledged that their opposition, captained by Brady, were exceptionally good. On Brady, Tyree added, “I have a lot of respect for him as far as just breaking any kind of trends and ideas about what’s possible at the position.” And while Tyree did acknowledge the “drop of a season” that Brady is having this year, he pointed out that “he’s still playing at a high level.” To say that Tom Brady has had a difficult year would be an understatement. The star player’s private and professional life has been under much scrutiny since Brady announced that he would be retiring shortly after the Super Bowl in February. Then, within weeks, Brady reversed his decision and recommitted to another season. Brady later announced that he would be divorcing his wife of 13 years, Gisele Bündchen. Despite the intense scrutiny of his life, there were high hopes for the quarterback to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the next Super Bowl. To the frustration of many fans and pundits, Brady has failed to deliver. The Buccaneers lost four matches in a row, which was the first time this happened for Brady since 2002. He also became the most sacked player in NFL history and the 45-year-old has been showing more evidence that the sport has taken a toll on his physical ability.

Streaming Habits and Trends in the UK 2022/2023

Intelligiants

How many services and how much are consumers willing to pay? Streaming trends on social media and interaction What users expect to see more of in the future 1500 UK citizens between the ages of 18 to 54 took part in a survey conducted by PartyCasino on 8 December 2022. The competition for national on-demand TV providers and Netflix has surged in the last 24 months and there are constantly new alternatives and options surfacing on the market. What effect will the abundance have, and how many monthly subscriptions will the UK audience pay for? The results show that 66% of the participants were signed up for 2-3 services (2 services - 38.13%, 3 services - 27.93%), while 9% have 4 subscriptions and only 5% a total of 5 different services. The majority (65%) responded that they have not cancelled any subscriptions in the last 12 months, while 24% have cancelled 1 service and 7% have cancelled 2 subscriptions. Will these numbers change in the next year with customers jumping from various networks and providers, due to what shows and movies are being offered? 74% also responded that the price is a major factor when signing up for a new service. This means that the big draw of what shows are offered might not be the only factor and we could potentially see a price war between the different service providers in the years to come. The survey also reveals how much the participants currently spend on various subscriptions, with some paying up to £200 per month. A few of the questions also targeted some of the biggest TV series that was aired during the year, where a total of 38% answered that they watched the entire season of Stranger Things, released in May 2022. Can you guess what the second most popular show was? See the result for TV series here. For the online based entertainment industry, it is also important to understand what trends can be expected and the survey gives insights into what other streaming habits are trending now, such as live streams on social media, and live gaming events on Twitch and YouTube. The results also indicate that audiences are open to in-app promotions and offers and that recommendations and interaction from other users could be out of interest. The full 15-question survey can be found in its entirety in a blog post by PartyCasino, posted here. Contact Details Intelligiants Ltd Freddie Kvarnebrink +44 7889 314155 press@intelligiants.com
