WASHINGTON COUNTY, UT REMOVED MORE THAN 115,000 SQUARE FEET OF GRASS FOR STATEWIDE LANDSCAPE CONVERSION EVENT

Washington County Water Conservancy District

Washington County, Utah removed more than 115,000 square feet of grass yesterday during Flip Blitz, a statewide landscape conversion event that replaced grass with water-efficient landscaping. More than 250 volunteers converted grass to water-wise landscaping at city offices, parks, cemeteries, and homes throughout the county. The conversion will save more than 4 million gallons of water every year – equivalent to the annual water use of approximately 20 homes. “We’re just getting started with our grass removal efforts,” said Zach Renstrom, general manager of the Washington County Water Conservancy District (district). “Because we live in a drought-prone desert, we must work together to stretch every drop of our limited water supply. We’re asking people to replace non-functional grass with desert-friendly landscapes. There are beautiful alternatives that use much less water.” Removing non-functional grass is gaining speed in southern Utah. The cities of St. George, Washington, Santa Clara and Ivins have recently removed 109,000 square feet of grass and have plans to remove another 367,000 square feet in the next year. Once completed, the cities will have removed nearly 600,000 square feet of non-functional grass. In addition, Washington County and the cities of Santa Clara and Washington have passed ordinances that prohibit or limit the amount of grass allowed in new developments. Similar ordinances are currently being considered by the county’s other major population centers. Statewide, Flip Blitz removed more than 135,000 square feet of grass from Utah landscapes – 85% of that coming from Washington County. “ Washington County is a leader in water conservation,” said Candice Hasenyager, director, Utah Division of Water Resources. “The county’s efforts have extended a finite water resource to create one of the fastest growing communities in America.” Flip Blitz projects in Washington County included: 48,000 square feet from Gubler Park in Santa Clara 43,000 square feet from Sunbrook HOA in St. George 12,000 square feet from Nisson Park in Washington City 7,000 square feet from Washington City Cemetery in Washington City 4,225 square feet from Unity Park in Ivins 1,000 square feet from city offices in Toquerville 442 square feet from residential properties in St George Projects were funded by participating cities and the district.

Ready to Plan Your Summer Travel? Here Is What You Need to Know When Booking Your Stays

YourUpdateTV

With the unofficial start of summer now just weeks away, you might be wondering what are the new summer travel trends and destinations to take into account? And how can one plan ahead and make sure that their summer trip is stress-free? Recently, Senior Communications Lead for North America for Airbnb, Liz DeBold Fusco conducted a satellite media tour to share travel tips and talk about the Airbnb 2022 Summer Release. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Dy1egHtkpdI The Airbnb 2022 Summer Release represents the biggest change to Airbnb in a decade. It includes: Airbnb Categories - A new way to search that makes it easy to discover millions of homes you never knew existed. Split Stays - An innovative feature that provides more options for longer stays by splitting your trip between two homes. AirCover for guests - The most comprehensive protection in travel, included for free with every stay. Airbnb Categories Millions of people are now more flexible about where they live and work. But travel search has been the same for 25 years — you enter a location and dates into a search box. Most of us can only think of a few dozen cities to type into the search box, but there are Airbnbs in 100,000 towns and cities around the world. That’s why Airbnb is introducing a new way to search designed around Airbnb Categories, making it easy to discover millions of unique homes you never knew existed. When you open Airbnb, you’re presented with 56 categories that organize homes based on their style, location, or proximity to a travel activity. When you search for a destination, your search results are also organized by categories that are relevant to that destination. As you view different categories, the map intelligently zooms to show you where the homes are located. To create Airbnb Categories, Airbnb evaluates millions of homes using machine learning to analyze titles, written descriptions, photo captions, structured data from Hosts, and reviews from guests. Members of Airbnb's curation team review listings and hand-pick featured photos — so if a listing is in the Amazing Pools Category, the first photo shows a pool. Then, each category goes through a final check to help ensure consistency and photo quality. The 56 Airbnb Categories include more than 4 million unique homes that are made possible by our Hosts all around the world. Airbnb Categories organize homes by what makes them unique, which helps people discover places they wouldn't have otherwise found. This can help alleviate over-tourism by redistributing travel to new locations beyond the same popular destinations. Split Stays In the last three months, nearly half of nights booked on Airbnb were for trips of a week or more. That's why Aibnb created Split Stays, an innovative feature that splits your trip between two homes. With Split Stays, you will typically see around 40% more listings when searching for longer stays. When searching a specific destination, Split Stays automatically appear in your search results. They also appear within 14 categories — including Camping, National Parks, Skiing, and Surfing — to inspire you to stay in two destinations as part of a longer trip. For example, when browsing the National Parks Category, Split Stays might suggest a pair of homes near Zion National Park and Grand Canyon. When viewing Split Stays on a map, an animated line visually connects the two homes to show you the distance between them and the sequence of the stays. Once you select a Split Stay, you’re guided through an easy-to-use interface to book each stay, one home at a time. AirCover for Guests This summer, millions of people will travel for the first time since the start of the pandemic. That's why Airbnb created AirCover, the most comprehensive protection in travel. AirCover is always included and always free, and it represents the biggest upgrade to Airbnb customer service in a decade. With AirCover, you're covered by four protections every time you stay on Airbnb: Booking Protection Guarantee - In the unlikely event a Host needs to cancel your booking within 30 days of check-in, Airbnb will find you a similar or better home, or they’ll refund you. Check-In Guarantee - If you can’t check into your home and the Host cannot resolve the issue, Airbnb will find you a similar or better home for the length of your original stay, or they’ll refund you. Get-What-You-Booked Guarantee - If at any time during your stay you find your listing isn't as advertised — for example, the refrigerator stops working and your Host can’t easily fix it, or there are fewer bedrooms than listed — you'll have three days to report it and Airbnb will find you a similar or better home, or they’ll refund you. 24-hour Safety Line - If you ever feel unsafe, you’ll get priority access to specially-trained safety agents, day or night. AirCover has been designed directly into the Airbnb app and website, making it easy for you to contact an agent and resolve issues quickly. Airbnb created a team of specially trained agents for last-minute rebooking assistance. The platform also significantly expanded their 24-hour safety line to cover 16 languages.

Guide to a Lush Lawn and Bountiful Garden

YourUpdateTV

Lawn and garden season is here, and despite the late start to spring, now is the perfect time to plant and seed for the coming months. Recently, Turf Scientist at Scotts, Phil Dwyer, and Horticulturist at Miracle-Gro, Amy Enfield, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss their top tips for getting your lawn and garden ready this spring. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/m0X3d6p3WzU When it comes to lawn care, the key thing is not to wait too long. In most parts of the country, spring has gotten off to a chilly start, but it’s important to not squander these prep weeks. The first thing to do is ask yourself whether you want to grow new grass - whether that is a large area or simply to cover some bare spots in your lawn – or are you simply looking to prevent weeds and have a thicker, healthier lawn overall. That question will help you narrow down what products you should be looking at. There are also several combo products like Scotts Triple Action and Scotts Rapid Grass that can address multiple lawn care needs in one bag. Always remember, lawns love nutrition and need to be fed. Another tip is for people to know the type of grass they have in their yard and a general sense for the condition of the soil. Many products are unique to specific grass types, and you may benefit from a product that enhances the condition of your soil. Finally, if you are planting new grass seed, don’t forget to water daily - it’s the number one mistake homeowners make when growing new grass. As for gardening, it may seem intimidating at first, but with the right products and a little bit of planning, getting beautiful results in your garden is really very simple. In the spring, the first thing to do is walk your garden and flower beds to plot out any new plants and flowers you’d like to add. Take note of how much sunlight touches the different areas you want to plant as sun exposure will really help narrow down your plant selection. Before planting, make sure the quality of the soil is good - whether in an inground flower bed, container, or raised bed. Miracle-Gro has a line of different soils specifically designed for each of these growing environments. And once you’ve planted your garden, don’t forget to feed your plants. As plants grow, they deplete the nutrients in the soil, but Miracle-Gro’s extensive line of plant food will help replenish those nutrients and keep your plants healthy all summer long. You can find more information on scotts.com and miraclegro.com. Right now, there is also a limited time promotion running on both websites for 30% off orders over $50, so head over and check it out. About Phil Dwyer: PhD Scotts R&D Lawns Research Principal works to develop new products and ways to help educate homeowners on how to succeed at caring for their lawns. Primary focus at Scotts is on lawn nutrition, disease management, new lawn establishment, water conservation and environmental research. A Graduate from MSU in Turfgrass Management with an MS and PhD in Turfgrass Pathology. About Amy Enfield: PhD Amy has over 25 years of experience in the Lawn & Garden industry.

Kitchen Magic Defines the Hybrid Kitchen

Kitchen Magic

Kitchen Magic outlines the combinations, homeowners are discovering along with the multitude of reasons why a customized hybrid kitchen may be the perfect solution for their next home remodeling project. Top Reasons Why a Hybrid Kitchen Makes Perfect Design Sense Essentially a hybrid kitchen is a design plan that combines both refacing and custom cabinetry. Refacing saves substantially on budget, allowing you to reinvest in other features and upgrades. Additional custom cabinetry or a new island creates valuable additional storage space and that visual change homeowners often want. The new cabinetry added into a hybrid kitchen remodel will perfectly match the refaced, existing cabinet boxes. The result is a highly personalized and transformative kitchen design. This hybrid approach improves the aesthetics and function of a kitchen, while also increasing the property value should you decide to sell down the road. The 2022 cost vs. value report says that a minor kitchen remodel will return 74.7% of the investment Make it personal A hybrid kitchen can include any type of custom-built cabinets, a desk, or a customized display case that matches the refacing cabinets for a unified space. Our design consultants often propose creative ideas for storage solutions, addressing issues you may not have even known you had. A good example of that might be creating a designated storage space for dry goods, spices, cooking essentials, and other everyday items. All of these improvements go a long way in helping you stay organized. How to hybrid Hybrid kitchens are a top trend in Kitchen Magic kitchens, and most homeowners utilize a hybrid design model to one degree or another. Designers do not see that trend slowing since the outcome is a custom solution for every customer. Even with the pandemic in the rear-view mirror, many homeowners still have enhanced storage on their wish lists. We’ve outlined several of the most popular design scenarios for which a homeowner embraces a hybrid design plan: Pass on the peninsula Adding a custom kitchen island instead of a peninsula is more conducive to gatherings. Homeowners with older homes often bid adieu to their kitchen peninsula, as the U-shape is a configuration that tends to "trap" people into a particular prep or dining area. Instead, allow your kitchen design team to create a kitchen island for increased workflow. A kitchen island is also a user-friendly layout for dining and social gatherings. Storage space galore Stock up and add a bank of cabinets, a buffet, a credenza, or a pantry. Copious storage is more critical than ever as remote work and more time at home have become permanent for many. A top request of homeowners is additional storage for dry goods, small appliances, and cooking equipment allowing them to keep stocked up and maintain a high-functioning kitchen. An empty corner can become that creates a personalized focal point for your new kitchen design. Imagine a coffee station, device charging zone, bar area or even a display case as an empty corner becomes your ‘statement’ corner. Working from home A built-in desk offers a welcome addition to working and learning at home. On those days you can avoid the commute, and stay just as functional with an additional work-from-home zone. Reface the existing cabinets and add a custom deck that suits your home office needs. Design details A hybrid kitchen design allows your to claim extra space and even double your existing space with smart storage solutions, Whether you plan to add a pantry, credenza, or a mudroom with cabinets, the sky's the limit with the help of the skilled craftspeople and designers at Kitchen Magic.

Generation Income Properties

Generation Income Properties, Inc. (NASDAQ:GIPR) ("GIPR" or the "Company") today announced its financial and operating results for the period ended March 31, 2022. Highlights (For the 3 months ended March 31, 2022) Generated net loss attributable to GIPR of $580 thousand, or ($0.26) per basic and diluted share. Generated Core FFO of $113 thousand, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share. Generated Core AFFO of $88 thousand, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share. Invested $12.6 million in three properties with an expected weighted average yield of 7.2%. Commenting on the quarter, CEO David Sobelman stated, “With market dynamics top of mind, we remain committed to strengthening our balance sheet, demonstrated through our recent long term fixed-rate debt refinance, as well as prudent capital allocation. We are hyper-focused on identifying the most accretive opportunities with investment-grade tenants consistent with our current portfolio of tenants that we believe continues to prove its resiliency during economic headwinds.” Core FFO and Core AFFO are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures used in the real estate industry to measure and compare the operating performance of real estate companies. A complete reconciliation containing adjustments from GAAP net income to Core FFO and Core AFFO are included at the end of this release. Portfolio (as of March 31, 2022, unless otherwise stated) Approximately 85% of our portfolio’s annualized base rent as of March 31, 2022, was derived from tenants that have (or whose parent company has) an investment-grade credit rating from a recognized credit rating agency of “BBB-” or better. Our largest tenants are the General Service Administration, Kohl’s, and PRA Group, all who have, or the parent entity has, a ‘BB+’ credit rating or better from S&P Global Ratings and contributed approximately 52% of our portfolio’s annualized base rent The Company’s portfolio is 100% leased and occupied and rent paying and has been since our inception. Approximately 92% of our portfolio’s annualized base rent in our current portfolio provide for increases in contractual base rent during future years of the current term or during the lease extension periods. The average annualized base rent (ABR) per square foot at the end of the quarter was $15.45. Liquidity and Capital Resources $4.6 million in total cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2022. Total debt, net was $35.0 million as of March 31, 2022. Financial Results Total revenue from operations was $1.2 million during the three-month period ended March 31, 2022, as compared to $937 thousand for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021. This represents a year-over-year increase of 26% driven primarily by the acquisition of properties. Operating expenses, including G&A, for the same periods were $1.6 million and $1.3 million, respectively. These changes in operating expenses were driven primarily by an increase in legal expenses, audit fees and insurance, partially offset by a decrease in other professional fees. Net operating income (“NOI”) for the same periods was $929 thousand and $756 thousand, a 23% increase from the same period last year, which is a direct result of the acquisition of properties. During the three-month periods ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, we incurred interest expense and the amortization of debt issuance costs of $330 thousand and $355 thousand, respectively. Net loss attributable to GIPR for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 was $446 thousand as compared to a loss of $322 thousand million. Dividends On March 15, 2022, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a monthly distribution of $0.054 per common share and operating partnership unit to be paid monthly to holders of record as of April 15, May 15, and June 15, 2022. 2022 Guidance The Company is not providing guidance on FFO, Core FFO, AFFO, Core AFFO, G&A, NOI, or acquisitions and dispositions at this time. However, the Company will provide timely updates on material events, which will be broadly disseminated in due course. The Company’s executives, along with its Board of Directors, continue to assess the advisability and timing of providing such guidance to better align GIPR with its industry peers.

FFO and related measures including NOI should not be considered alternatives to net income as a performance measure or to cash flows from operations, as reported on our statement of cash flows, or as a liquidity measure, and should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP financial measures. You should not consider our Core FFO or Core AFFO as an alternative to net income or cash flows from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP. Our conciliation of non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and statements of why management believes these measures are useful to investors are included below. Generation Income Properties, Inc. Consolidated Balance Sheets Generation Income Properties, Inc. Consolidated Statements of Operations (unaudited) Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures The following tables reconcile net income (loss), which we believe is the most comparable GAAP measure, to Net Operating Income (“NOI”): Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures The following tables reconcile net income (net loss), which we believe is the most comparable GAAP measure, to FFO, Core FFO, AFFO, and Core AFFO: Our reported results are presented in accordance with GAAP. We also disclose funds from operations (FFO), adjusted funds from operations (AFFO), core funds from operations (Core FFO) and core adjusted funds of operations (Core AFFO) all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they are widely accepted industry measures used by analysts and investors to compare the operating performance of REITs. FFO and related measures do not represent cash generated from operating activities and are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements; accordingly, they should not be considered alternatives to net income as a performance measure or cash flows from operations as reported on our statement of cash flows as a liquidity measure and should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP financial measures. We compute FFO in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts or NAREIT. NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income or loss adjusted to exclude extraordinary items (as defined by GAAP), net gain or loss from sales of depreciable real estate assets, impairment write-downs associated with depreciable real estate assets, and real estate related depreciation and amortization, including the pro rata share of such adjustments of unconsolidated subsidiaries. We then adjust FFO for non-cash revenues and expenses such as amortization of deferred financing costs, above and below market lease intangible amortization, straight line rent, non-cash stock compensation, public company consulting fees, and non-recurring litigation expenses and settlements to calculate Core AFFO. FFO is used by management, investors, and analysts to facilitate meaningful comparisons of operating performance between periods and among our peers primarily because it excludes the effect of real estate depreciation and amortization and net gains on sales, which are based on historical costs and implicitly assume that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time, rather than fluctuating based on existing market conditions. We believe that AFFO is an additional useful supplemental measure for investors to consider because it will help them to better assess our operating performance without the distortions created by other non-cash revenues or expenses. FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. We believe that Core FFO and Core AFFO are useful measures for management and investors because they further remove the effect of non-cash expenses and certain other expenses that are not directly related to real estate operations. We use each as measures of our performance when we formulate corporate goals. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization, gains and losses from property dispositions that are available for distribution to stockholders and extraordinary items, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities, general and administrative expenses and interest costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from net income. In addition, our management team believes that FFO provides useful information to the investment community about our financial performance when compared to other REITs since FFO is generally recognized as the industry standard for reporting the operations of REITs. However, FFO should not be viewed as an alternative measure of our operating performance since it does not reflect either depreciation and amortization costs or the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties which could be significant economic costs and could materially impact our results from operations. Additionally, FFO does it reflect distributions paid to redeemable non-controlling interests.

Voxel Raises $15M to Decrease Workplace Injuries and Prevent Workplace Accidents

Voxel

Voxel, a startup using computer vision to transform safety and operations in the workplace, is announcing its $15M Series A funding round led by Eclipse Ventures with participation from MTech and World Innovation Labs. Since raising its seed round in September, Voxel has grown at an unprecedented pace by decreasing on-site injuries by upwards of 80% and increasing operational productivity by over 20% at its initial customer sites. This latest round of funding brings total equity raised to $18M. Using state-of-the-art computer vision technology and AI, Voxel integrates with existing security cameras to identify hazards, risky behaviors, and operational inefficiencies across a diverse range of workplaces. Once an event such as a spill, speeding vehicle, or ergonomics issue is identified, a real-time alert is sent to on-site personnel who can take immediate action. Voxel’s analytics help sites identify operational inefficiencies and design policies to prevent future issues. These proactive measures allow businesses to significantly reduce worker’s compensation and general liability costs, while improving their operations. “Site safety and operations are often a reactive and manual process, where security cameras are reviewed after issues occur,” said Alex Senemar, CEO of Voxel. “Voxel is the first solution to allow companies to proactively identify key behaviors that lead to costly injuries using their existing camera infrastructure.” In the last three months, Voxel has had a transformative impact on its customers’ operations as installations have grown by 10x.“It has been inspiring to see the impact of our product in the real world,” said Senemar. CTO, Anurag Kanugo added, “Many of our customers are seeing upwards of an 80% reduction in onsite injuries, and the impact on their operations has been significant.” These early successes have attracted the attention of major insurance players who recognize Voxel’s potential to transform risk management and workplace safety. Voxel aims to fundamentally change how insurance companies underwrite risk and seeks to strengthen the relationship between insurers and their customers through robust data and actionable intelligence. The company emphasizes its commitment to privacy and security, and its algorithms do not track any personally identifiable information. “We are at an inflection point in terms of rebuilding US manufacturing, logistics, and physical operations, which represent over 40% of the US GDP. Voxel’s technology catalyzes tangible results and lasting change in the safety and efficiency of their customer’s operations,” said Aidan Madigan-Curtis, Partner at Eclipse Ventures and Voxel board member. “The Eclipse team believes Voxel’s core architecture, which takes a non-intrusive approach by leveraging existing camera infrastructure, and their cutting-edge AI applications will enable Voxel to become a category-leader in software and AI applications across a multi-trillion dollar set of physical-industry sectors." Voxel’s team has grown rapidly, adding key personnel to its staff from established industry firms, including Samsara, Verkada, Google, and Apple. The team has grown from 8 at the beginning of 2022 to close to 30, and the Series A investment will allow Voxel to accelerate its growth even further. Voxel’s team is led by CEO Alex Senemar, who previously co-founded Sherbit, an AI-powered remote health monitoring system for hospitals (acquired in 2018) as well as co-founders, CTO Anurag Kanungo, who co-founded Sherbit with Senemar, and led the Machine Learning Systems Team at Uber’s Self Driving Unit; Harishma Dayanidhi, who developed self-driving car technology at Uber and Aurora; and Troy Carlson, former software engineer at Google. About Voxel Voxel uses artificial intelligence to enable security cameras to automatically identify potential workplace hazards, high-risk activities, and operational inefficiencies, allowing on-site personnel to address concerns in real-time. The platform keeps workers safe, while helping companies significantly reduce overhead costs from general liability, worker's compensation, and property claims. ​​Voxel software is transforming operations in warehousing, manufacturing, retail, transportation, construction, and oil & gas.

PCMA Announces Continued Nationwide Expansion with the Addition of Tennessee to our Lending Footprint

PCMA

PCMA, the pioneer and leading voice in Non-Bank Private Client Lending, announces the expansion of our Private Client services to the state of Tennessee - Company NMLS ID: 237710. The expansion of Private Client Lending into Tennessee highlights the extraordinary growth of PCMA and the continued growth in the Tennessee luxury housing markets. Nashville, TN is one of the hottest real estate markets in the country, fueling the overall growth in the state of Tennessee. Almost halfway through 2022, Nashville has the record for the most expensive home sale in state, with a eye popping sale price of $50MM dollars. Nashville, TN is one of the most sought-after residential markets for high-net-worth estates and buyers. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the population of Nashville, Tennessee grew by 10.8% from 2010 to 2019. Other cities in the metro area experienced even greater population growth during that same period. “Tennessee has become a very viable and attractive relocation destination thanks to a mix of beautiful cities, amazing outdoor activities and a family focused economy,” said John R. Lynch, CEO and Founder of PCMA. “Affluent Buyers are drawn to Nashville and other major metro areas due to the quality of construction, and quality of life Tennessee offers families, without sacrificing their personal or professional lifestyles.” PCMA’s expansion into the Tennessee market comes on the heels of both internal and external growth of the company and new subsidiaries. PCMA continues to experience an unprecedented growth of high-net-worth originations at a record pace throughout the first half of 2022 even in the face of rising interest rates. Continued growth has come with the addition of PCMA Capital Advisors and the expansion of direct and indirect origination channels. “The Private Client community invests in prized real estate assets as a predictable hedge against monetary debasement and CPI,” said Lynch. “Even in the face of rapidly rising interest rates and unprecedented inflation, luxury real estate is still the perfect economic safe haven.” About PMCA PCMA is a vertically integrated Asset Origination and Convexity Management firm that specializes in Structured, Super Prime, Non-Agency, Private Client Credit. With its captive origination unit, PCMA has become the leading Non-Bank Private Client Lender in the U.S. What began as a linear venture has morphed into a vertical organization and industry leading incubator of ideas pushing the boundaries of innovation in high-capacity financial services.
