Largest Electronic International Flags Mosaic & “One World, One Prayer” Enormous LED Lyrics | Bob Marley 39th Funeral Observance | B-Roll & Bites

Paramount Miami Worldcenter is a beacon of Global Unity — Flying Flags from Around The World, and Sending The Message of Our Song: 'One World, One Prayer.'”

— 19-Time Grammy Award Winner, Emilio Estefan

MIAMI, FL, USA, May 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — To mark Miami’s re-opening and to commemorate the 39th annual observance of the death of reggae music legend Bob Marley, his moniker band, The Wailers, and 19-time Grammy winning producer Emilio Estefan, are debuting a new COVID-19 global unity anthem, entitled “One World, One Prayer.”

During the city’s nightly tower lighting salute to healthcare professionals, first responders and essential workers, the new, futuristic, 700-foot, $600-million Paramount Miami Worldcenter’s one-of-a-kind L.E.D. animation system is igniting the world’s largest electronic mosaic of flags from around the globe and an enormous ticker-tape-style read-out of the song’s title lyrics.

Largest Global Flags Mosaic Tower Lighting

Shimmering through Paramount Miami's center column is a 693-foot vertical light stream of flags representing 132 nations. The building’s top floor crown is filled with a 150-foot-high by 300-foot-wide moving-medley of fluttering flags from five continents, merged with a 100-yard-long scrolling image that reads, “One World, One Prayer.”

Estefan Collaborates with Marley Family

Estefan says, he collaborated with Bob Marley’s daughter, Cedella Marley, and his grandson; her son, Skip Marley in the production of “One World, One Prayer.”

Also working with Estefan are popular Puerto Rican musician, “Farruko;” Jamaican superstar, “Shaggy;” and original Wailers’ band member, Aston “Family Man” Barrett.

Estefan, winner of 19 Grammy Awards, is married to seven-time Grammy winner Gloria Estefan.

He says, it took him two-years to write, compose and complete the song, which he says is being debuted at an important time for the world to unite – in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.

"Everybody is equal," says Estefan. "Everybody is the same. And, now it's happening. We are all in this together."

Of the song and tower lighting, Estefan says, "It's a celebration of hope and unity." He adds, "What the Paramount Miami Worldcenter is doing is sending an incredible message of One World, One Prayer."

Paramount Miami Worldcenter Global Light Show

The Paramount Miami Worldcenter global light show runs every 30-minutes, for three-minutes, from sunset ‘til midnight, through Memorial Day weekend and at 10 p.m. through the remainder of May, according to Paramount Miami Worldcenter CEO-Developer Daniel Kodsi (Cod-See). "Our nightly tower lightings have become a beacon of patriotism, unity and fortitude."

History: Bob Marley & The Wailers

Bob Marley died in Miami on May 11, 1981 from melanoma cancer. He was buried in Jamaica, 39-years-ago, this month, on May 21, 1981.

Marley was a reggae music Rastafarian icon best-known for his 1963 hit, “One Love, People Get Ready.” He and The Wailers recorded 15 albums. Marley was also a controversial proponent of the medicinal purposes of marijuana smoking.

If he was still alive, Marley would be 75 years-old.

It is the nation’s largest urban core construction project and America’s second-largest real estate development.

Hotelier, Charlton Claxton, Talks Future of Vacation Housing

A photo of up-and-coming hotelier, Eric Charlton Claxton, as seen in 2020 appearing in Savannah Georgia

Hotelier, Eric Charlton Claxton (2020)

Charlton Says: “Vacation rentals will seriously displace traditional hotels in the next 10-15 years, Hotels must evolve!”

Vacation rentals will seriously displace traditional hotels in the next 10-15 years, Hotels must evolve!”

— Charlton Claxton

SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, USA, May 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are you curious about the next major change to the vacation rental industry may look like? We took the time to ask Savannah Georgia based Hotelier, Charlton Claxton. For this article he discusses what he thinks the cottage industry might look like in the coming years. Like any other industry, Part of being a vacation rental owner is knowing the history of the industry in which you operate, and how it can change. The vacation rental market is expanding aggressively from a user prospective and from an investment prospective. This has been shown to be true, as Charlton himself was the first, on behalf of his company, to create a 10-year triple net leased investment out of the vacation rental industry. To that end, he says: “Understanding the history and industry trends allows vacation rental owners to seize future opportunities, and allows smart operators to create attractive returns for themselves and investors.”

Charlton: “In the next 10 years we will see vacation rentals and corporate housing coming to look a lot like hotels look today. I believe there are many similarities already starting to be apparent between the two different hospitality types. We will see hotels shift to more of an “asset light” model where the traditional ownership of the hotel asset is split to where different parties own (Investors like REITs), manage (onsite managers, like our own company), brand (Hilton, Andaz), and the third group will provide reservation distribution (Expedia, Booking.com) for hotel rooms. In my opinion, this already very similar to how vacation rentals are structured. This is especially true under our company’s model where an investor (or our company) owns the asset, we manage on a long term contract with the ownership group, and we receive reservations through the exact same channels that major hotels do- So if you compare the two, the same splits exist: owners (individual homeowners), managers (local rental companies), brands (Wyndham is the biggest, but no brand has the scale of hotels yet), and distribution (Airbnb, VRBO- or more professional booking channels for larger operators such as us, with Expedia.com, Booking.com, Hotels.com”

Where do you see the next wave investments coming into the industry?

Charlton Continues: “I believe the big “gap” and opportunity for investment returns is what i call "brand". I expect the oncoming gold rush to lead to national and regional operators becoming more like traditional hotel brands- by utilizing what makes them unique and providing a core brand experience that guests can expect, but yet they are staying in homes and other vacation rental structures. I believe there will be a lot of money made by these types of companies, whom are either simply branded operators, or operators whom are more like us whom are utilizing investor equity to build specialized properties, and then selling those special build micro properties to investors whom lease them back to the operators under a performance basis- which is exactly what our firm does. I think the upcoming changes and rental income will lure a new class of homes into the industry, whose owners were previously leery of the vacation rental concept, and it will lead to the quick decline of owner-managed properties, as individuals struggle to compete against professionally-serviced outfits. A decade from now, people will book a vacation rental with as much ease and confidence as they do a hotel room”

It wasn’t so long ago that vacation rentals were just mom & pop shop. Today, the cottage industry is now worth upwards of $100 billion and we saw the industry exceed $170 billion by 2019. With the rise of the internet, it’s so easy to learn about all the amazing travel experiences that are available throughout the world. The next step in the process that’s unfolding is to make the actual process of booking your travels just as seamless.

Charlton Says: “The demand for vacation rentals in highly desirable locations–coastal and tourist areas–will expand for both trophy properties, as well as lower end properties such as duplexes, fourplexes, and in-law quarters. Lower end properties in particular will provide direct competition to the hotel and motel industry especially in smaller southern markets like Savannah or Charleston. And more specifically to the historic coastal regions, I believe properties that have been family heirlooms will be more likely to remain in the same family than in the past, thanks to this rental income. Historically, trophy properties have tended stay in a family until maintenance and upkeep become unaffordable, at which time they sell. I believe legacy properties will stay in families for longer periods of time, if not indefinitely. The popularity of the industry has increased 57%, and is continuing to grow. This looks good for owners and investors.”

Eric Charlton Claxton, is the oldest step-son of real estate development titan G.S. Sheppard. Of all of G.S.’s children, Charlie is known for his career as a hotelier, real estate developer, business owner, and now, soon to be, published author. That last role might be the aspect you're least familiar with: Charlie has spent the last year finishing up his freshman novel entitled “Earth Bound”. The book is about “what happens when a Christmas eve car crash takes the life of the youngest child of one of Savannah’s oldest, most gilded families, and the dark places that everyone goes when we hurt”.

Coronavirus fears caused rates to drop to an 8-year low. Lyncrest Media shares how the Mortgage Industry adapts

Alex Machuca

Refinance applications surged 165% annually as an influx of new business hits the Mortgage Industry, with home owners scrambling to re-mortgage.

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA, U.S., May 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mortgage Rates have dropped to 8-Year Low, all thanks to Coronavirus Fears. This has impacted the mortgage industry like never before. As Mortgage rates are dropping fast: they may drop even more. Now, the Mortgage Bankers Association reports that Refinance applications surged 165% annually. As companies fight for a piece of the pie; what are they doing to get ahead? Lyncrest Media is on the solutions-side to help Mortgage Brokers grow rapidly during this titanic shift happening in the market and explains what can be done.

Automation and artificial intelligence, with data-driven marketing has taken over in every industry. It is no different in the Mortgage Industry. For many brokers, marketing efforts have started to expand to more than just “lead generation”. Now, to benefit from new shifts in the market, more is required than mere leads. “Many people think rates won’t stay this low for long. People don’t want to miss out on the opportunity refinance. That makes lead generation very easy for a lot of brokers, but they end up not having the capacity to service the influx of new business. They come to us because automation solves that problem.” – Alex Machuca, CEO of Lyncrest Media.

Lyncrest Media is at the forefront of this new wave of marketing companies who implement automation. Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, The company says they only sell appointments, not leads. They use a lead nurturing system that engages in conversation with people via text, email, and voicemail. The lead is pampered and taken through a customer journey. By the time it gets to the broker, it is primed and ready to have a serious conversation. “Following up with your leads is absolutely critical in order to be a successful broker. We follow up with a lead a minimum of 20 times over the course of 90 days.” says Alex. This well thought out follow up sequence has leads converting to booked appointments at an astounding rate. Setting appointments and staying organized is probably very important in today's busy climate!

Mortgage brokers will need a rapid method for business development, not a 12-month plan. With 30-year fixed mortgage rates in the U.S. reaching 3.34% in May 2020, it is likely to accelerate the trend among homeowners to seek refinancing. Between May and November 2020, the mortgage market will most likely see it’s biggest shift. Brokers who operate on a fast-response plan stand to gain. Those who face longer customer acquisition cycles will likely miss this current wave of movement.

Lyncrest Media partners with the Mortgage Industry to provide cutting-edge solutions to generate new business and nurture existing leads for optimal conversion rates. The combined experience of it’s consultants and technological leadership is what the company is most renowned for.

Unprecedented Upturn in Showing Activity Seen in April and May as Agents, Buyers and Sellers Adjust to Virtual Showings

ShowingTime logo

A look at the latest showing activity in Michigan

A look at the latest home showing activity in Michigan reveals an impressive turnaround

Showing Traffic Matches Prior-Year Levels in Many Markets; Tech-Facilitated Showings, Loosening of Stay-at-Home Restrictions Account for Improvements

The data we’re seeing indicate an impressive rate of adoption of virtual showings. With the introduction of ShowingTime LIVE, we’re able to help agents get buyers into properties in a safe manner.”

— Michael Lane

CHICAGO, IL, US, May 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Key Points:
• Year-over-year gains in showing activity seen in states immediately after restrictions are loosened for in-person showings, signaling how other states might fare following similar legislative decisions
• Tens of thousands of virtual showings have been conducted to date through ShowingTime
• ShowingTime’s COVID-19 tracker, which charts daily homebuyer demand across the U.S. and parts of Canada, reveals steady improvements in almost every state and province: showingtime.com/impact-of-coronavirus

CHICAGO – May 21, 2020 – Showing activity continued an impressive turnaround after an historic spring collapse, led in part by loosening restrictions and increased adoption of virtual showing technology, according to data from ShowingTime.

In early April, 42 states had issued stay-at-home orders, though by mid-May, the number of states where only essential businesses were permitted to remain open had dropped to 21. The Department of Homeland Security lists real estate as an essential service, though local guidelines take precedence.

“The beginning of April marked the absolute bottom of per capita real estate activity since the Great Depression as three-quarters of buyer traffic evaporated, yet that was immediately followed by an unprecedented turnaround,” said ShowingTime Chief Analytics Officer Daniil Cherkasskiy. “We’ve seen a significant rebound in May as rapidly returning buyer traffic concentrates on the subdued levels of inventory.”

The data also show that listings that have gone under contract since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic have required 40 percent fewer showings. “The probability of going under contract for listings coming on the market has been remarkably stable after the first week of April,” Cherkasskiy said. “This suggests that buyers who were still trying to see homes in April were, on average, more determined to complete the transaction.”

The upswing in showing activity correlates with an increasing rate of adoption of technology, with more and more agents conducting showings virtually. Since introducing a “virtual showing” option within its showing management products in early April, ShowingTime has seen tens of thousands of showings conducted exclusively online.

ShowingTime also introduced ShowingTime LIVE, an all-in-one showing and video platform that enables agents and their buyers to use ShowingTime’s mobile app for live, one-on-one interactive video showings. ShowingTime LIVE is currently available in select markets, and will be available throughout the U.S. and Canada in June.

“We’re continuing to see great resilience in the industry, which can be attributed to agents’ willingness to expand their view of how showings can be conducted,” said ShowingTime President Michael Lane. “The data we’re seeing indicate an impressive rate of adoption of virtual showings. With the introduction of ShowingTime LIVE, we’re able to help agents get buyers into properties in a safe manner.”

In Michigan, state officials updated their guidance on May 7 and declared real estate an essential business. As a result, the state’s showing activity jumped dramatically, recovering to a normal Springtime run-rate in just eight days. It could signal how other states will fare following similar actions and loosening of restrictions.

As anticipated, Showing Index® data in April revealed flagging activity on a year-over-year basis. Nationally, showing activity dropped 42.1 percent year over year in April, with the Northeast Region’s 51.2 percent fall the most significant of all four regions. The Midwest’s 41.4 percent year-over-year dip came next, followed by a 36.7 percent decline in activity in the West. The South’s 33.6 percent fall in activity rounded out the year-over-year decreases in buyer traffic.

The ShowingTime Showing Index, the first of its kind in the residential real estate industry, is compiled using data from property showings scheduled across the country on listings using ShowingTime products and services, providing a benchmark to track buyer demand. ShowingTime facilitates more than five million showings each month. Released monthly, the Showing Index tracks the average number of appointments received on active listings during the month. Local MLS indices are also available for select markets and are distributed to MLS and association leadership.

About ShowingTime
ShowingTime is the residential real estate industry’s leading showing management and market stats technology provider, with more than 1.2 million active listings subscribed to its services. Its showing products and services simplify the appointment scheduling process for real estate professionals, buyers and sellers, resulting in more showings, more feedback and more efficient sales. Its MarketStats division provides interactive tools and easy-to-read market reports for MLSs, associations, brokers, agents and other real estate companies, as well as a recruiting tool for brokers.

Fitness Flooring: One Size Does Not Fit All

CARSON, CA, USA, May 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When it comes to flooring for a fitness area, not all are created equal. Flooring is the one item in a fitness area that is used more than any other equipment in the room. Having the right fitness flooring has a huge impact on a user’s exercise experience. Every workout that involves standing, jumping, running, squatting, lifting, and even stretching in a purposely heated room (hot yoga) are done on this specialized flooring. There are many pieces to take into consideration when deciding on the right studio or gym flooring. The most important of these is quality.

Quality for fitness flooring is based on thickness, durability, odor, and performance. Fitness flooring takes a good amount of beating from both the members and equipment. Flooring in these applications shouldn’t just meet the minimum requirements for the space; it should exceed the demands of the activities in the room and surpass the ability to support heavy machinery and equipment. Fitness flooring needs to contribute to preventing injuries to body areas, such as joints, muscles, and tendons, by providing impact and shock absorption.

It should also provide a good grip for the athlete, but still allow some degree of slide so the body can move. Why the grip? From a yoga ball to a bench press machine, all fitness rooms have some type of equipment. Ensuring a sufficient grip will prevent unnecessary injuries since unintentional movements of the machinery will be suppressed.

What about thickness? Most visitors are unaware of the thickness of the floor… and maybe they don’t even care. For a studio owner, it is the number one component they look for in flooring. Depending on the type of workout in the room, thicker is not always better. Thicker also doesn’t mean it’s stronger and tougher. To judge strength, you’ll have to look at the overall performance quality of the company’s flooring product line regardless of density. For instance, a spinning room would benefit in using Lonseal’s Lonplate I or Lonplate II where a hot yoga space will do better with Lonwood Performa or Lonwood with Foam. The baseline durability of both types of Lonseal flooring is above-average of what is normally found in other commercial sheet vinyl flooring. Adding Lonsafe or choosing one with an already equipped padding product like Lonwood Performa (2 new colors recently added: W556 Summer Breeze and W557 Morning Fog) take the brutal beating in its chosen application area. Keep in mind that any type of equipment on cushioned-layered sheet vinyl flooring or foam underlayment could leave a long-lasting or permanent indentation. No vinyl floor is immune to indentations that come from high point loading of equipment. Make sure the product you choose is suitable for the use of space and the company provides a product specification chart. A chart that shows results for static load recovery and short-term indentation is important, such in the case of Lonwood Performa’ s product specification sheet.

Of course, we cannot forget the importance of hygiene. Here we are, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of antimicrobial features on the flooring will re-surface. For a short time, there was a slight movement in healthcare spaces wanting to move away from antimicrobial flooring due to its contribution to creating “superbugs”. In cases like COVID-19, buildings that chose elements that have antimicrobial features in them are appreciating their decision more. There is no shelter from body fluids for fitness flooring. Not only does flooring in these vulnerable spaces need to be easy to clean, it also needs to be protected from germ absorption so that bacteria and viruses do not permeate past the top layer of the floor. Most of Lonseal’s flooring products have GreenMedic®, which is an increased infection control through an antimicrobial formulation. GreenMedic® is exclusive only to Lonseal. Antimicrobial properties in any flooring do not mean it will kill the invading microbe. Many products out there are misinterpreting this word in their product line, giving the consumer a false sense of security. Maintenance and disinfection is the only weapon to kill a microbe. Lonseal’s GreenMedic® has the ability to impede the growth of bacteria and helps limit it spread.

There is also the visual impact. Not everyone enjoys exercising, and having a nice welcoming environment helps unmotivated people feel comfortable and empowered. We all know that flooring can create a strong first impression, especially in yoga type settings where there are no obstacles in viewing the entire floor space. The colors and patterns should contribute to a “let’s do this” mindset. Lonseal adopted a Biophilic way of designing for health and wellbeing. Why Biophilic? This method of designing enhances cognitive, psychological, and physiological factors. Studies have proven positive results and Lonseal focuses on being part of the solution.

We can’t forget about the noise factor. Another benefit of using Lonseal sheet vinyl flooring is the absorption of noise. This is particularly important especially when a studio is located around residential or quiet business properties. Noise-reducing flooring should consider because energetic workout routines and dropping of heavy weights are not soft-spoken and can produce noises in surrounding rooms.

Lastly, is fire protection necessary? All building codes, including gyms and fitness studios, do require fire protection in materials used to build the space. For rooms that are used frequently, flooring should have a fire protection certificate. Lonseal flooring does meet the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Class 1 requirements for floor finishes. The protection against fire spread reduces the cost of damages in the event of a fire.

Remember, just because it’s labeled “fitness flooring” doesn’t mean it fits the need of any fitness facility. Some fitness flooring options are inexpensive, but not durable enough to fit the needs of a specific use of space. Contact your Lonseal representative or go to our website at Lonseal.com to request samples of our fitness flooring products.

Plannerly connects critical BIM requirements directly to 3D models within Autodesk BIM 360® for a truly integrated approach to BIM management and compliance.

Plannerly’s integration with BIM 360 helps make BIM management more seamless for customers.”

IRVINE, CA, UNITED STATES, May 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With many stakeholders involved on building projects, aligning BIM expectations in the design and construction industry can be a challenge.

Plannerly’s Verify module helps customers quickly confirm whether their BIM models include the scope and information agreed-upon with other project stakeholders in the BIM Execution Plan.

Now, by connecting the Verify module directly to BIM 360®, customers can ensure they are always looking at the most up-to-date versions of their models for compliance against the original requirements in the BIM Execution Plan.

This integration allows customers to ensure their 3D coordination, 4D scheduling, 5D estimating and similar BIM processes are using the most accurate models.

Customers save time, reduce rework and frustrations so they can ultimately deliver projects of higher quality to clients.

Clive Jordan, Co-founder and CEO at Plannerly says, “The team has been working hard to make the boring administrative parts of construction project management simple and perhaps even fun. Our new integration with BIM 360 marks another major milestone towards a simplified BIM management workflow.”

“Not only is the industry increasingly leveraging BIM, but models are also becoming increasingly complex,” says James Cook, head of integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions. “This reality means keeping stakeholders aligned on BIM management is essential for project success, and Verify’s integration with BIM 360 helps make BIM management more seamless for customers.”
