“There’s a whole new group of ‘plant parents’ out there and they’re absolute newbies,” says Lisa Steinkopfblogging since 2011 as The Houseplant Guru and author of four books on indoor gardening, including Bloom, (August 2022). Many of these new plant shoppers started during the pandemic (myself included), but indoor gardening was already becoming a trending hobby among Millennials before Covid.

Enthusiasm for pandemic plants

“One of the biggest things we found was that consumers felt the plants helped them throughout the pandemic to cope with stressful thoughts and feelings,” reports Interviews with producers, an industry publication, quoting a University of Florida professor. The publication predicts houseplant sales will continue to grow, attributing it to the happiness of shoppers. “Indoor plants make people feel good,” added the professor.

Benefits of plants for mental health

I quoted one Medical construction and design business review article in my Wellness by design book pointing to studies with natural elements, including plants, aiding in healing, reducing stress and anxiety, and even decreasing the need for pain relief. That’s not to say your new ficus or fern is comparable to medical care but, as Mulhall notes, “most people spend over 85% of their lives indoors, so these spaces have a big influence on your health.”

“People want to be surrounded by plants in the places where they decompress the most,” says Pismo Beach, a California-based interior designer. Ariana Lovato. She is increasingly being asked to incorporate integrated plant elements into the spaces she creates. “The rooms where we design the most integrated pieces would be the main bathroom and living room,” she says. Kitchens are also popular places for plants, judging by the pictures circulating online. Several kitchen storage companies make plant holders specifically for these high-traffic rooms.

Living walls are also becoming a frequent request for Lovato. These can be created for indoor or outdoor spaces and add visual warmth. Grass walls are also popular trends. “For the Seasonal Living Virtual Showhouse, we designed a hydroponic wall system so homeowners could grow their own herbs while looking stylish.” It was one of the standout features of this online-only showcase home during the pandemic.

Physical benefits of plants

The plants you add to your home can have a positive influence on your well-being, including your physical health. “There is a strong association between the quality of your indoor environment and risk factors leading to heart disease, so great care needs to be taken,” Mulhall suggests.

Plants can also have an air purifying effect, but this will depend on the room, the plants, and other environmental factors. “It is best to combine plants with an effective air purification system in your home,” advises the environmental specialist.

He also notes that houseplants can be part of a healthy diet. “Very young vegetables like cabbage and radishes are high in vitamins C, K, and E. Microgreens are full of antioxidants like polyphenols, which may reduce the risk of heart disease by helping your body repair heart disease. elasticity of your arteries”, one of his focuses as an entrepreneur, based on technology from Clemson University. “There are some interesting crosses between indoor medicinal plants and heart health. Many herbs are anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Chamomile, basil and thyme are examples.

Plant tips and trends

Although the pros far outweigh the cons, according to Mulhall, there are some issues to consider when growing the plants. If mold is growing, that’s a problem, he points out. (Some people are allergic to them.) Some people are also allergic to flowering plants. This is something to consider before bringing one home. Some plants are harmful to pets; the The ASPCA maintains a list of these (which houseplant maven Steinkopf recommends to readers). Plants can also attract insects, warns Mulhall. “If you start using toxic pesticides to control insects, you defeat the purpose; there are safe alternatives.

One of the biggest precautions when it comes to plant parenting can be shedding. The most common question Steinkopf asks is “what’s wrong with my plant?” she shares. “People send pictures of plants with spots, dead leaves, insects and mites and ask me to diagnose the problem.”

The most important aspect of a successful grow is choosing the right plant for the right place in your home, she comments. “Know what exposure your home is facing so you know which plants will work for your environment.”

Lovato keeps this in mind for her customers, especially as they get busier with less time for plant care. “Most people want plants that are easy to care for. We also make sure to place the plants in the right places. Hanging indoor plants are a fun trend right now,” she observes.

Some systems are available today to facilitate successful cultivation, Steinkopf explains. Electric lights that can give plants exactly what they need are a trend she suggests for beginners. “Economic lights work very well and are an economical way to grow a lot of plants in a small space.”

Self-watering pots are also popular now and are an easy way to keep your plants hydrated. (Lovato says her clients love their convenience factor.) The soil needs to be very porous so it doesn’t stay too wet, and drainage is essential, Steinkopf says. “A lot of people feel like they just need drainage material. Although it is possible to grow a plant in a container without a drainage hole, it is not easy and for new plant parents in particular, a hole is a must.

Last words

“Learning about the benefits of different types of plants is super important and interesting,” says Lovato. Its California homeowner customers invest heavily in landscape and indoor plants, but you don’t need a favorable climate or a gigantic budget to make plants work for your home and your life.

Worried about airport delays? What travel insurance will – and won’t – cover https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/worried-about-airport-delays-what-travel-insurance-will-and-wont-cover/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 09:00:00 +0000 https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/worried-about-airport-delays-what-travel-insurance-will-and-wont-cover/

If you plan to board a plane in the near future, pack your patience, travel insurance policy, and a notebook.

While stranded air passengers can rely on travel insurance to cover some costs related to flight disruptions and baggage delays, in Canada they also often have to argue their case for refunds and compensation from airline staff. and airports. This is when taking detailed notes can come in handy, according to one consumer expert.

Documenting your trip — by keeping detailed logs and receipts — can help you claim reimbursement in the event of travel disruptions, said air passenger rights advocate Gabor Lukacs.

Record queues, flight delays and cancellations at Toronto Pearson International Airport and other major Canadian air travel hubs have recently tested passenger endurance. Airlines, airports and agencies that handle customs and security checks are all struggling to replenish their staff in the face of the country’s labor shortages and growing travel demand.

And while insurance may cover some costs related to travel disruption, reimbursement and compensation for flight delays, cancellations, and lost or damaged baggage is usually the responsibility of the airlines. But amid accusations and chaos, Canadians often face bureaucratic and legal battles to recoup expenses from broken travel plans. Canada’s ill-conceived and poorly enforced air passenger protection rules aren’t helping, Lukacs adds.

Under the country’s Air Passenger Protection regulations, Canadians may be entitled to compensation of $125 to $1,000, in addition to a free rebooking, for flight delays or cancellations that are deemed to be within the control of the airline and not related to safety. For travel disruption due to denied boarding caused by overbooking, compensation can reach up to $2,400.

But barring overbooking, consumers must proactively seek compensation and often demonstrate their eligibility for it based on Canada’s complex Air Passenger Protection Regulations, according to Mr. Lukacs, who is president of Air Passenger Rights, a non-profit.

According to Lukacs, this routinely leaves consumers asking questions such as whether a crew constraint causing a flight disruption was within the airline’s control.

But the fact that air carriers as well as customs and border security agencies are all grappling with staff shortages makes it even more difficult for passengers seeking compensation to assess where airlines’ responsibilities lie, he added.

One of the thorniest issues currently facing passengers is demonstrating that they did not miss a flight because they did not show up at the airport early enough, which would even prevent a refund, according to travel experts.

That’s why Lukacs recommends keeping a close eye on your airport experience. A taxi voucher or parking receipt can help prove that you arrived early enough. Logs from receiving your boarding pass or checking your baggage can help determine whether it is a staff shortage at the airline check-in counter or later at customs or security that held you back, he added.

Travel insurance will also help contain personal expenses. A trip cancellation and interruption policy will not reimburse you for a canceled flight, but may cover all or part of the non-refundable costs of hotel nights, pre-booked excursions and activities you will miss because you didn’t leave when you were supposed to, said Matt Hands, director of insurance at Ratehub.ca, an online financial product comparison site.

Another important feature of cancellation and interruption coverage: If your luggage is delayed, many policies include compensation for the replacement of essential items while you wait for your luggage, noted Martin Firestone, president of insurance brokerage. TravelSecure Inc.

Although insurance won’t reimburse you for the full cost of lost luggage, being able to purchase toiletries and clothing at no extra cost could make a significant difference to your holiday, said Mr Firestone, who has said he recently used his baggage insurance benefited from a nearly three-day delay on his luggage while traveling in Greece.

Keep in mind that cancellation and interruption coverage is often sold separately or in addition to travel medical insurance, which pays for unforeseen medical expenses during your travels. And it can be expensive. Mr. Firestone estimated that the cost is usually between 7% and 10% of the total trip.

Still, the current air travel chaos offers “probably more evidence than ever of the importance of travel insurance”, Mr Hands said.

While it doesn’t provide coverage in all scenarios, “at least you know you have some sort of financial compensation and recourse options,” he added.

Bridlington man swaps bins for business with new takeaway app https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/bridlington-man-swaps-bins-for-business-with-new-takeaway-app/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/bridlington-man-swaps-bins-for-business-with-new-takeaway-app/

Garbage collector Tom Cone ditched trash cans for businesses and launched his own app.

Tom said his final goodbyes to his fellow street scene crew at East Riding Carnaby Depot on Monday as he bid farewell to the duties of collecting rubbish, loading bins and picking up rubbish.

It’s now on track to do battle with some of the food industry’s biggest brands with its own takeaway app, aptly named Bridlington Eats. The company already has 27 independent local outlets that customers can choose from.

Entrepreneur Tom said: “Suffering from depression during lockdown, I needed to get out. The early start with the guys and girls on the bins was great for me: the really nice company and the physical challenge left me cheered up!”

Tom moved to Bridlington just as the third lockdown was announced, but sadly a shoulder injury prevented him from continuing in that role. Luckily for Tom, a new opportunity soon presented itself.

Bored while his shoulder healed, undergoing physiotherapy and waiting for doctors to allow him to return to work, Tom spotted an opportunity to launch an app similar to JustEat, UberEats, Deliveroo and many others. However, his unique perspective would be to focus his efforts on Bridlington and the surrounding area.



Tom went from binman to businessman

Tom said, “Most people don’t realize that big brands charge up to 30% commission on takeout! And that’s not Just Eat…it’s just outrageous!”

Tom’s app offers all the bells and whistles of other apps, and he’s worked hard to sign up for many outlets so people have a good choice. With a charge of just 7.5%, Tom offers over 20% savings for the cafes, burger bars, restaurants and takeaways he recruits.

He continued: ‘When people switch to BridlingtonEats they know the outlets have a much better deal and that will help keep prices down.’

A particularly big issue in this time of runaway inflation, Tom is also helping to cross-promote Bridlington businesses through his creative and imaginative use of social media, competitions and Facebook posts. These include alerts on dodgy £20 notes seen by over 20,000 people!

Tom is also working to raise Bridlington’s profile on TikTok. You can see his latest promotion by by clicking here.

BridlingtonEats will launch in June.

IMTS 2022 Conference: Production Metal 3D Printing https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/imts-2022-conference-production-metal-3d-printing/ Mon, 13 Jun 2022 04:30:02 +0000 https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/imts-2022-conference-production-metal-3d-printing/

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) pioneer Volocopter has taken another step in bringing UAM to life: its fixed-wing passenger aircraft, the VoloConnect, completed its maiden flight in May 2022. This achievement makes Volocopter the only eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft) developer to have an entire fleet of distinct aircraft configurations undergoing flight testing.

Volocopter’s third product solution, the VoloConnect, delivers longer and faster routes than any other Volocopter aircraft to date, with a range of over 60 miles and flight speeds of over 155 mph. The passenger aircraft’s extended range and higher payload will take business travelers and commuters beyond downtown on routes like Burbank to Huntington Beach in Los Angeles, California. With the VoloCity and VoloConnect air taxi designs meeting the demands of metropolitan flights and suburban routes in densely populated areas respectively, Volocopter is ready to meet a wider range of passenger flight needs. The VoloConnect is targeting entry into service in 2026, while the VoloCity is targeting a commercial launch in 2024.

“Having a whole family of electric aircraft in the test flight phase is a pioneering achievement,” said Florian Reuter, Volocopter CEO. “Volocopter’s industry leadership stems from announcing plans and then visibly implementing them with public test flights. Our technology platform is the foundation of our aircraft family approach and s proven to deliver results with astonishing speed. Volocopter brings these innovative designs from the ground, to the air, and then to cities around the world!”

“This is an extraordinary moment for us – seeing the VoloConnect soaring into the sky marks the achievement of one of our key milestones and demonstrates exactly what we are capable of in a short time and in line with the company’s overall strategy. company for both manned and unmanned aircraft,” says Sebastian Mores, Chief Engineer, VoloConnect. “In addition, new technologies will be tested which will be gradually implemented during the overall development of the program,” Mores said.

Volocopter has designed the VoloConnect and its other eVTOL aircraft to meet the highest aviation safety standards according to EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency). The prototype made its first flight in May 2022 after only 17 months of manufacture and performed a few maneuvers for 2 minutes and 14 seconds during its first flight. The prototype has all the aerodynamic and performance characteristics expected of the future commercial product.

The VoloConnect is a transport and cruiser aircraft optimized for missions beyond urban and suburban space. Reducing moving parts to a minimum, its six rotors facilitate vertical takeoff, while two electric fans combined with lift-creating wings ensure high forward speeds. Its prototype is currently undergoing a series of demanding flight tests to verify that the aircraft and its systems are within performance limits and prepared for further development. This phase includes low-speed, transition, high-speed, and engine-failure testing for subsequent automated and autonomous flight – all standard testing for eVTOL passenger aircraft manufacturers. During the first three test flights of this campaign, the team was able to verify a significant portion of the eVTOL envelope with forward speeds of up to 40 mph and lateral flight speeds of 28 mph during testing.

VoloConnect is poised to energize Volocopter’s total addressable UAM market, alongside existing members of its aircraft family, the VoloDrone and VoloCity. There is no shortage of technological differences between VoloCity and VoloConnect passenger aircraft. Importantly, their unique designs for their specific flight missions, with the VoloCity multirotor air taxi ready to serve intra-city routes, while its transport and cruiser big brother will focus on longer urban and suburban missions. .

Four Hundred by Design, ‘reservation conduit’, connects advisors to luxury properties: Travel Weekly https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/four-hundred-by-design-reservation-conduit-connects-advisors-to-luxury-properties-travel-weekly/ Sat, 11 Jun 2022 16:07:08 +0000 https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/four-hundred-by-design-reservation-conduit-connects-advisors-to-luxury-properties-travel-weekly/

A new platform for travel advisors, Four hundred per designhopes to connect agents with luxury properties and offer them increased revenue, 10-day payout after client check-out and more.

The product, which is called FHxD, is the brainchild of Tony Abrams and Tony Shepherd, respectively founder and CEO of luxury travel agency Four Hundred. The pair launched FHxD last October, after Shepherd said he and Abrams wanted to start a business that would help other travel advisers.

FHxD acts as a “booking conduit” between agents and properties, Shepherd said. It is free for agents, while providers pay FHxD to be part of the platform.

Its target user, he said, is a small independent contractor-owned boutique agency that books luxury travel but might not have access to supplier programs with higher volume-based commission payments.

“They don’t do enough business to be part of a preferred supplier program, but they may have two or three unicorn customers who take huge trips each year, and they want to see if they can maximize their revenue” , said Shepherd.

Tony Berger

Before Shepherd became CEO of Four Hundred, he was a consultant for Virtuoso, helping it expand in Europe and onboarding some 80 agency members there. Previously, he was COO of Protravel International for over 25 years, before it was sold to Internova (#7 on Travel Weekly’s 2021 powerhouse list) – his family founded the agency.

Rounding out FHxD’s management team are Karen Goldberg, formerly Managing Director of Hotels and Resorts at Virtuoso, and Robert Eastman, formerly of Villas of Distinction.

Currently, there are around 150 hotels and 250 villas in the program, Shepherd said, and that number is growing. The average daily rate for FHxD bookings is $1,600, and half of the bookings are suites.

What attracts advisors

While Shepherd initially thought higher commissions would attract advisors, the team finds that more are interested in the faster payout and the fact that they don’t have to chase after a commission. Travel advisors also benefit from the FHxD team of six agents who make the reservation for them (all they need to do is fill out a form on FHxD website), saving time and effort.

While FHxD makes the actual booking, the advisor remains the official agent for the transaction and controls everything else relating to their client’s travels. Users must provide a valid IATA number or similar code identifying them as a travel agent. This information is used to process commission payments.

Shepherd encouraged agents to sign up and check out the platform’s offerings, even if they don’t book anything.

“They can use us once a year, they can use us 10 times a year, they can’t use us once a year – it’s up to them,” he said.

FHxD also offers marketing assets, a quarterly magazine featuring a number of properties on the platform and a quarterly white paper on industry trends.

At present, FHxD has between 500 and 600 registered users. So far, Shepherd said, he’s encouraged by using the platform.

“We were pleasantly surprised at how many people came to us for help,” he said. “And, of course, not every request turns into a reservation. That’s true for every customer request. But we’re quite happy that the look-to-book ratio is very strong.”

Apple changes payment rules for third-party dating apps to comply with Dutch regulator”s order https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/apple-changes-payment-rules-for-third-party-dating-apps-to-comply-with-dutch-regulators-order/ Sat, 11 Jun 2022 15:51:45 +0000 https://ziyaretcidefterim.com/apple-changes-payment-rules-for-third-party-dating-apps-to-comply-with-dutch-regulators-order/

Apple has announcement a handful of changes to its rules around dating app payments to comply with orders from the Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM). If you recall, the regulator ordered the tech giant to allow third-party payments in locally available dating apps by January this year. A Reuters March report said the company had yet to join to orders in a way that is really in line with what the regulator wanted, however – so far, of course.

In its announcement, Apple said it has made user interface adjustments for third-party payments. As part of its efforts to comply with the ACM, it has started showing a warning whenever someone tries to pay with a third-party payment option, warning them that they will need to contact the developer for a refund. . As Reuters note, this warning was originally accompanied by a button that made it easy to opt out of using an external payment system. The ACM apparently didn’t approve of this button, so Apple had to remove it.

Apple also clarified in its post that even developers who already pay lower discounts are eligible for the reduced commission rates they charge on third-party payments. Back when the company said it would comply with ACM requirements, it revealed that developers paying a 30% discount would only be charged 27%. However, it was unclear whether developers who already pay lower rates to meet certain criteria, such as earning less than a million a year, will also benefit from the 3% discount. Apple clarified in its announcement that they will indeed pay lower commissions for third-party payments, so those who are only charged 15% will only have to remit 12% to the company.

In a statement published on its website, the ACM said that with these changes, “Apple will comply with the requirements that the Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) has set under European and Dutch competition rules.” The regulator also revealed that Apple had to pay fines totaling 50 million euros for failing to meet ACM compliance requirements in recent months. Apple, however, said it doesn’t believe some of the changes it needs to implement are in the privacy or data security interests of its users. “As we have said before,” the company added, “we disagree with the initial ACM order and are appealing it.”
