Diamond Platnumz Flair Bartends in New Belaire Video! As Premiered with GQ South Africa

Watch Diamond Platnumz Flair Bartend!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Burgundy, France (October 2, 2018) – Smash-hit wine brand Luc Belaire has released a new video starring music sensation Diamond Platnumz, who has also offered fans a Belaire cocktail recipe of his own making.

The video follows Diamond as he enters a club, greeting the barman before proceeding to take the bartending into his own hands. Diamond juggles bottles of Belaire Rosé and Belaire Luxe, throwing a Luxe bottle so high into the air that he has time to dance, flirt and check his Rolex while waiting for the bottle to reappear! He pours glasses for the gathering crowd and joins the dance floor. Diamond wears a Belaire cap and limited edition varsity jacket, which he co-designed with Belaire, updating the brand’s signature design to include African inspired patterned sleeves, embroidery and patches.

The unique video is a creative collaboration between Diamond and Belaire, fusing the artist’s love of cocktails with his natural flair for performance. And whilst the tricks themselves may be aided by a professional, Diamond is keen to use some of the moves he learned on-set at his next night out! The hitmaker has also created a special cocktail recipe for use with either of his favourite Belaire bottles, Belaire Luxe and Belaire Luxe Rosé.

Diamond Platnumz says “I’m drawn to the creativity of cocktails and I’ve always had a natural flair for performance. I picked up a few tips from the professional we worked with and I’m definitely going to try out some moves the next time I’m partying. My go-to bottles are Belaire Luxe and Belaire Luxe Rosé. I like a sweet, fragrant cocktail with that extra touch of luxury that Belaire adds.”

French Diamond
Recipe

– 100ml lychee juice
– ½ tbsp agave syrup or clear honey
– 2 teaspoon lemon juice
– 2 drops of rose water, to taste
– 200ml chilled Belaire Luxe or Belaire Luxe Rosé

Step by step
– Pour the lychee juice and the agave syrup into a cocktail shaker with a few ice cubes.
– Add 2 drops of rose water and 2 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
– Shake vigorously and taste (Diamond’s tip: you may need to add a few more drops of rose water but don’t overdo it).
– Strain into 2 coup glasses, top up with Belaire Luxe or Belaire Luxe Rosé and use a long spoon to gently mix.
– Garnish with rose petals and lychee slices.

Diamond’s latest collaboration with Belaire follows an in-depth interview for the brand’s Self Made Tastes Better campaign, which saw him share his journey to becoming East Africa’s biggest star and a global music sensation. He has since worked with hip hop mogul and Belaire supporter Rick Ross on the tune “Waka,” which trended on Youtube, and became a summer anthem.

LA’s proposed short-term rental ordinance could return more than 11,000 residential units back into the city’s permanent housing stock.

REPORT: Los Angeles’ Airbnb ordinance could return approximately 11,000 homes back into city’s housing stock in the near term

Click here to download copy of report on Los Angeles short-term rentals and analysis of proposed STR ordinance
LOS ANGELES, CA – AirbnbWATCH, an affordable housing advocate and consumer watchdog group, released a report today with concerning statistics and trends regarding short-term vacation rentals in Los Angeles and provided a positive analysis of the recent proposed short-term rental ordinance.

One of those troubling statistics:  the number of short-term rentals in Los Angeles has been growing more rapidly than the general housing supply. In fact, the number of short-term rental units in Los Angeles jumped by approximately 9.7 percent or 200 listings per month from mid-2016 to 2018.

Unlike other U.S. cities, which typically see investors controlling 20 percent of short-term listings, Los Angeles is seeing more than 45 percent of its short-term rentals being controlled by investors citywide and more than 50 percent in Venice, Westwood, West Los Angeles, Hollywood, and other downtown/central neighborhoods. That’s twice the average of other major cities.

“Los Angeles has an affordable housing crisis on its hands, which is exacerbated by the proliferation of professional short-term rentals. The city council must act now to stop the out-of-control downward spiral in the city’s permanent housing stock,” stated Lauren Windsor, spokesperson for AirbnbWATCH.  “The lack of regulation has made short-term rental ownership a lucrative business for investors, at the expense of everyday Angelenos struggling to keep a roof over their heads. Los Angeles should follow the lead of other cities and eliminate professional short-term investor rentals.”

While the report raises concerning trends regarding the negative impacts of short-term rentals on Los Angeles’s permanent residential housing, the analysis shows that the proposed ordinance passed by city council back in May that is currently moving through the city planning commission would have a positive impact in protecting it.

The report illustrates that under the current growth trend, approximately 27,957 of current short-term vacation rentals in Los Angeles would rise to more than 33,000 rentals by July 2020. This would remove another 4,800 or more residential homes from the city’s housing stock.

However, if the Los Angeles ordinance is enacted, the number of short-term vacation rentals would decline to under 20,000 rentals. The gap between Los Angeles’ number of short-term vacation rental listings under the “as-is” status quo versus the expected reduction effect of the proposed short-term ordinance could be 11,000 or more within the next two years.

“Bottom line, the proposed short-term rental ordinance as-is could increase Los Angeles’ permanent housing stock by more than 11,000 homes over the next two years by eliminating professional short-term rental investing,” stated Windsor. “This will not only return thousands of homes to the city’s long-term housing supply, but protect thousands more from being bought up by investors. The Los Angeles City Council should enact the ordinance without delay.”

4DX is the world’s first and leading 4D technology-based movie experience that brings moving seats and environmental effects like wind, rain and scent to movie theaters around the world

I was super happy when we got the invite to watch Incredibles 2 in a 4DX theater, because the 4DX experience just makes it extremely special. They provide the largest number of multisensory signature effects industry-wide. With 20 different kinds of signature effects, 4DX creates the most outstanding environment for movies. My son’s Aidan and Chase accompanied me to the movie, and we were in for a treat.
4DX is the world’s first and leading 4D technology-based movie experience that brings moving seats and environmental effects like wind, rain and scent to movie theaters around the world.
It is basically a theme park attraction added to your favorite nearby movie theater. A great way to experience excitement without the expensive trip to a theme park.
There are currently 10 cinemas in the U.S. (and more than 500 worldwide) featuring 4DX, including locations in Southern California, New York, Seattle, Orlando, Chicago metro area, and D.C. with more to come
Whike watching The Incredibles 2 we experienced the smells, The chairs moved, sprayed water, and gave us a feeling like we were actually a part of the movie.
After 14 years, the Parr family is still as lovably and quirky as you remember them.
Seeing these characters again after 14 years was a huge blast of the past, it’s great how the sequel picked up right where the original left off. The story line along with the added thrills. Felt like an advancement from the first movie, and so proud to see a superhero film with a female as the hero
