OYO Launches Discounted Stays as Memorial Day Weekend Bookings Soar

OYO

Global travel technology company OYO has announced a special offer for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday. This Memorial Day weekend is expected to be the busiest since 2000. Due to record anticipated travelers for the weekend, OYO is offering discounted stays to help travelers plan their holidays within their budget. Travelers can avail 33% off on all stays from 27 th to 31 st May 2023. With this 33% off discount offer, travelers can book 2 nights and get 1 night stay for free at select OYO hotels across the US. To redeem the offer, customers need to book their stay on the OYO app or website and enter the promo code “MEMORIALDAY.” Customers can also book by calling our representatives on +1 405-342-7056. OYO is also seeing increased demand in cities like Atlanta, Houston, San Antonio & Jackson. Speaking about the upcoming season, Gautam Swaroop, CEO OYO International said, “Memorial Day is an important holiday for the Americans. We are preparing for the busy summer season across the states, which officially kicks off this weekend. We anticipate a surge in bookings, as reports suggest that 42.3 million Americans will be traveling 50 miles or more for the long weekend, an increase of 2.7 million compared to 2022. We expect record-breaking hotel bookings within city limits and along highways, as a vast majority of Americans, approximately 37.1 million travelers, will be hitting the road.” OYO offers hotels access to a large base of regular customers through its app and website, and lists hotels on multiple Online Travel Agents (OTAs) to boost booking demand and revenue. OYO’s best-in-class Artificial Intelligence-enabled pricing software automatically drives the best booking prices across all channels, based on room type, seasonality and other factors, therefore, enabling such an increase in online revenues. OYO has started offering hotels the flexibility of not having to invest heavily in redoing the hotel to join the OYO platform, something that other budget hotel chains insist on. Therefore, the initial investment to join OYO is minimal. It has been focusing instead on standardizing service led components such as customer support and booking experience. The company helps ensure great experience for customers, with ease of search and a quick booking experience, highly competitive room prices as per market demand patterns, automated tools such as Artificial Intelligence powered chatbots to quickly resolve customer queries, loyalty programs and easy refund, if needed. Earlier this year OYO said that it is planning to add over 100 hotels in the US in 2023. This is nearly double the number of hotels the company added to its portfolio in 2022. OYO will focus on adding more hotels in the states of Oregon, Washington, Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia and Florida. Texas continues to be the largest and fastest growing market for OYO in the US, while it also has sizable concentration of hotels in Oregon, South and North Carolina, Florida & Georgia. In 2022, the company saw a ~23% increase in new hotels added to its portfolio in the US vs 2021. Furthermore, OYO’s US operations have outpaced the budget hotel segment in terms of revenue per available room (RevPar) with an 18% rise in RevPar in 2022 vs pre-covid year, 2019. In contrast the budget hotel segment grew by only 6% in the US. The company also achieved a 48% growth in revenue from bookings on its own platform, such as the app, website, mobile web and call centers in Q4 2022 vs same period in 2021. OYO’s app saw highest growth with a 99% surge in revenue from bookings in Q4 2022 vs same period in 2021. The company had earlier disclosed that its app is the second most downloaded travel app with over 100 million downloads globally.

The Humane Society of the United States Addresses the Pet Poverty Crisis

YourUpdateTV

Most people are aware of how poverty and structural inequality create challenges and barriers to accessing healthy food, education, jobs, health care and housing and how inflation is only making the crisis worse. Pet resources are no different. Many families are struggling to afford and access veterinary care, food and supplies for their beloved pets. More than 20 million pets live in poverty - three times as many pets live in poverty as enter shelters every year. This is a long overlooked national crisis exacerbated by inflation and the economy. Recently, Kitty Block, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the launch of the More Than a Pet campaign and how the organization is addressing the crisis. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/GdaZXktSjNI Over the past 20 years, the Humane Society of the United States has helped half a million pets and their families by providing veterinary care and supplies at no cost, keeping families and pets together in over 50 communities across the U.S. Without these services, families are often forced to make choices about sacrificing their own needs, even food and medications for themselves, to prioritize care for their pet. No family should ever have to make that choice. Since 2002, the Humane Society of United States’ Pets for Life and Rural Area Veterinary Services programs have been helping pet owners across the U.S. by providing food, supplies and services for their cats and dogs at no cost. It is critical to close the gap that exists for people and pets in underserved areas. With the new campaign called “More Than a Pet,” the HSUS is sounding an alarm about this crisis that is only getting worse. The Humane Society of the United States is offering these tips for people to support their communities: Advocate for keeping pets and their people together by signing the HSUS petition to close the pet equity gap. Your voice can make a big impact for all animals. Volunteer with the Humane Society of the United States’ Pets for Life and Rural Area Veterinary Services programs, which increase access to pet care for underserved communities. Donate pet food to your local shelter or pet food pantry. If you know of a neighbor in need, offer to help drive them to a veterinary appointment, foster their pet temporarily or provide a bag of their pet’s favorite food to help close the access to pet care gap. The HSUS is inviting the public to show their support for this campaign by sharing why their animal companion is #MoreThanAPet to them, at humanesociety.org/morethanapet. Campaign partner Smalls is donating a bowl of food for every photo shared, up to $1M, to pets and their families in need. Learn More and Get Involved About Kitty Block Kitty Block is the chief executive officer and president of the Humane Society of the United States and also chief executive officer of Humane Society International. She leads the nation's most effective animal protection organization in the fight for all animals. Block was named president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States in January 2019, becoming the first woman to hold the position in the organization’s history. Block first joined the HSUS as a legal investigator in 1992 and was instrumental in bringing cruelties such as horse slaughter and the killing of dogs and cats for their fur in China to light. She led the HSUS’s efforts to secure protections for dolphins with successful litigation and landmark dolphin-safe tuna legislation. In addition, she was one of the architects of a successful lawsuit over commercial whaling brought against Japan by Australia in the International Court of Justice. She has served as an adviser to the White House on trade and the environment, and she has served multiple elected terms on the International Dolphin Conservation Agreement International Review Panel, which works with governments on monitoring violations of the agreement. Block received a law degree from The George Washington University in 1990 and a bachelor’s degree in communications and philosophy from the University of New Hampshire in 1986. She is a lifelong animal lover who helped her mother rescue and care for pets and other animals in need as a child. Block lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband and daughter, their street dog rescue, Lilly, and rescue cats, Misti and Storm Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

Shareholder to Address Censorship Policies at Alphabet, Amazon, and Meta

National Legal & Policy Center

Following the exposure by the “Twitter Files” reports that revealed the extent to which malicious government agencies colluded with Big Tech to censor content, a shareholder in three Silicon Valley corporations will present proposals in the coming weeks to address their suppression of speech. National Legal and Policy Center – which owns stock in Amazon, Alphabet (parent of Google and YouTube) and Meta (parent of Facebook) – will sponsor proposals at each company that request transparency about requests they have received from U.S. government officials to “take down” content from their platforms. Amazon’s annual meeting is on Wednesday, May 24; Meta’s is on May 31, and Alphabet’s is on June 2. “As we’ve learned since Elon Musk took over Twitter, there is an epidemic of unconstitutional government censorship of speech in our country, and Big Tech has welcomed the opportunities to be their enforcers,” said Paul Chesser, director of NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project, who will present the proposals at the companies’ respective meetings. “It is vital, as public companies, that Alphabet, Amazon and Meta act in the country’s interest and disclose who in the federal government is making these improper – and most of them probably illegal – requests, and divulge what they have asked to be removed from their platforms.” The Amazon and Meta proposals seek an itemization of the requests the companies have received from federal government. The Alphabet proposal asks for a report about the extent its censorship policies and practices have on the fiduciary health of the company. The text of NLPC’s proposal for a “Risk Audit on Content Censorship” for Alphabet’s 2023 annual meeting follows: RESOLVED: Shareholders request that Alphabet Inc. (“Company”) issue a report at reasonable cost – omitting proprietary or legally privileged information – reviewing the vulnerabilities of its enforcement of Google’s and YouTube’s Terms of Service related to content policies, and assessing the risks posed by content management controversies related to issues such as election interference, freedom of expression, and inequitable application of policies, and how they affect the Company’s finances, operations, and reputation. SUPPORTING STATEMENT: Evidence has accumulated over many years that show Alphabet Inc.’s platforms discriminate against disfavored speech, interfered in elections, and is undeniably prejudiced. Major examples include: In leaked Company emails, employees discussed using “ephemeral experiences” to change users’ views. Back in 2016, the Company’s chief financial officer said, “we will use the great strength and resources and reach we have” to advance Google’s values. Consequentially, senior research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein found that – based on 1.5 million search experiences his team aggregated in 2020 – that the Company’s manipulations could have shifted up to six million votes to Joe Biden. A study of voter outreach by 2020 political candidates, conducted by North Carolina State University’s Department of Computer Science, found that Google’s Gmail “marked 59.3% more emails from [conservative] candidates as spam compared to the [progressive] candidates.” The Republican National Committee claimed that Gmail sent more than 22 million of its emails to spam during a critical fundraising period in the 2022 election cycle. The Company has incurred a lawsuit and a complaint to the Federal Elections Commission due to the alleged suppression. A Media Research Center analysis of the most tightly contested 2022 U.S. Senate races found that ten of 12 Republican candidates’ campaign websites (83%) appeared far lower (or did not appear at all) on page one of Google’s organic search results, compared to their Senate Democratic Party opponents’ campaign websites. In addition to the above examples, the Company is the target of a credible, major lawsuit by the states of Missouri and Louisiana, based on extensive evidence that the Company violated users’ First Amendment rights. Shareholders need to know whether the Company is engaged in unconstitutional censorship, and whether the Company exercises its content moderation in violation of its Terms of Service, opening the Company to liability claims by victims. Shareholders also need to know whether the Company is failing to disclose these potential liabilities as material risks in its public filings. There is currently no single source providing shareholders the information sought by this resolution. Founded in 1991, NLPC promotes ethics in public life and government accountability through research, investigation, education, and legal action. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or drene@nlpc.org.

A New And Healthy Mineral-Based Energy Supplement Is On The Market – Synthesit Gives Caffeine’s Benefits Without The Negative Side Effects

Synthesit

In today's fast-paced world, it is essential to maintain high levels of energy and focus throughout the day. As an integral part of many people's daily routines, coffee is one of the most popular drinks globally – an estimated two billion cups of coffee are drunk every single day. There is a growing market of healthy coffee alternatives such as Synthesit available which can help preserve energy without the negative effects of coffee. The energy supplement market is expected to reach a value of $152 billion by 2031. Interest in coffee alternatives is driven in part by a realization of the problems with excessive caffeine consumption. Around 90% of Americans drink coffee regularly, and of these, almost 10% exhibit a caffeine use disorder from addiction to coffee. Consuming large amounts of coffee can cause a number of concerning side effects. These include increased anxiety, insomnia, heart palpitations, headaches, and jitters, which can affect one's productivity and general health. While coffee can improve concentration and help individuals stay awake, it is crucial to note that it is not the only way to enhance cognitive function. Alternative supplements that mimic the effects of caffeine without the negative side effects are available for those concerned about the side effects of excessive coffee consumption. Synthesit is one such supplement that offers an energy boost with no side effects. A Mineral-Based Caffeine Alternative Synthesit is a revolutionary modified iron-based mineral that has the ability to reduce stress and increase energy levels. It offers all the benefits of coffee without its acidity and bitterness and without any reported side effects. Additionally, when users stop taking it, no signs of addiction are shown. Studies have shown numerous health benefits to Synthesit, and individuals who have tried it have reported feeling more energized and focused. Taken as one capsule in the morning per day, Synthesit can help increase stamina and performance, reduce fatigue, maintain hemoglobin levels, and increase body resistance. The mineral can be beneficial for office workers, athletes, elderly people and anyone who would like to boost their agility, health, workout routine and general well-being. According to the company, “Long-term use of Synthesit can significantly improve these levels, increase endurance, immunity and regenerative abilities of the body.” Synthesit’s Health Benefits Synthesit Oxygen Force has spent more than five years researching how to make iron more bioavailable. The researchers noted that minerals in volcanic regions are active and wholesome for the human body. However, micro-concentrations of these minerals in nature are not sufficient to remedy iron deficits, which impact approximately one-third of the world's population. The makers of Synthesit have managed to replicate the extreme temperatures and stages of natural geothermal activity. This has yielded an innovative iron-based mineral that is easily absorbed by the body. This mineral differs from average iron supplements and is reportedly 100% bioavailable and easily digestible. According to the company, scientific studies show Synthesit restores the production of blood stem cells and reduces cholesterol by 40% in elderly macaque monkeys. As an iron supplement, Synthesit boosts red blood cells to aid blood circulation and provides a sense of energy that lasts throughout the day. The company says the supplement also reduces weight by 5%, increases power by 4%, improves oxygen transport by 6%, reduces blood pressure, and lowers the heart rate by 5% during stressful situations. Long-term use of Synthesit may also significantly improve these levels, and increase endurance, immunity, and regenerative abilities of the body. Although coffee may offer various health benefits and enjoyment, consuming it excessively can lead to adverse consequences such as poor sleep, mood swings, digestive issues, dehydration, and dependence. Energy supplements like Synthesit can be a way for individuals to access caffeine's benefits without the negatives that come with a caffeine addiction.

The origin of SYNTHESIT The results of the project were announced in Switzerland, in Geneva, in 2019, by the creator and head of the Synthesit project team. Advisers to the project were prominent scientists in the field of physics and geochemistry, as well as a specialist who previously worked at the Center for European Nuclear Research - CERN. The main starting point for the experiments were the conditions that arise in the epicenter of volcanic activity located at a depth of 15–20 kilometers below the Earth's surface. The physical and chemical processes develop, which to some extent change the properties of chemical elements, and, according to the project leader, acquire new properties. In the course of their research and numerous experiments, Synthesit researchers tried to reproduce these processes occurring in the epicenter of volcanic activity. Over time, it was possible to develop a technology that reproduces a certain cycle of impacts on minerals. When a satisfactory effect on the composition of chemical elements was achieved, the question arose of testing the possible new properties of such elements. The focus evolved around iron, as ron is the main trace element in the biochemistry of animals, and the basis of blood. After that, the production of a biologically active additive began, based on the obtained iron using the new special technology. These are products under the brand name - SYNTHESIT. SYNTHESIT, a concentrate of pure iron obtained under the conditions of processes similar to volcanic ones, causes an increase in the blood oxygen content only an hour after taking it. In 2020 the company finalized the product for commercial sale. It has been producing SYNTHESIT as a dietary supplement in Germany, Switzerland, Russia and the United States.
