Emma and Tristan, thought this might be a useful site for you?
I’ve been asked , first by my business friends, then by my corporate associates that are directly involved with the hospitality industry, especially local, national, and worldwide hotel owners, GMs, and CEOs, to provide a “weekly insight”, on how the hospitality industry is planning on winning the “post-corona battle”, by providing future GUESTS/TRAVELLERS/CONSUMERS, a safer, more interactive enviroment between the HOTEL guest/traveller and the HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY…on what changes are now in the planning stages, and are expected between 2020-2025, on a weekly 555’s “POST-CORONA-HOSPITALITY” blog. This is our First……. 40+million Unemployed…going on 50million (which is about 1/3 of the total number of small businesses in the U.S.) midway 2020…WHY???? …And why are only 5-10% of the unemployed expected to return to their previous jobs, and the rest will stay in the “unemployed status” ?? And what are most small business owners, including large corporations, like the hospitality industry’s hotel, restaurant, and tourism sector, expecting to do with at least 75% of the workforce that was laid off ?? “BAD-COMPANY-CULTURE”….thriving before the pandemic hit, is now the main culprit why employees, do not want to go back to their old jobs. And these bosses will not expect their former employees to come back!! Most workers, business owners, and the rest of America, feel that the “increase of stimulus funds” provided by the Federal Govt. and State Govts., will miraculously provide short term relief to an imaginary long term solution, to fill this job-less void. The root of the problem is that while most businesses continue to have insensitive bosses, lack of employee-insured working conditions, continued low-wages, and providing “0” incentives to former laid off employees to return to their former jobs, there is NO CHANGE to develop a “great company culture”. Enjoy an example of “great company culture” https://youtu.be/L739jjht1eY Your thoughts are appreciated, send them to linkedin.com/in/manuel-antonio-torres-the-5-5-5-club or to https://www.facebook.com/the555clubcom-115267453358206/

AIRBNB SHOULD BE BANNED IMMEDIATELY! Let me put it this way... this is how sick this psychopath (Brian Chesky) is... less than 4 days after ANOTHER 5 people are brutally murdered using Airbnb's so-called sharing platform Mr. Chesky is in an interview espousing his company and their 'TRUST' (non-existent), component. False advertising and he is indignantly ignoring how sick his company is and how he plans to take Airbnb public. It turns my stomach! They are a revolting pack of lying, thieving, cheating psychopaths https://youtu.be/iyy9XkQR1CM Physically and Verbally assaulted, terrorized and held captive by knife-wielding lunatic for 3 hours, My property vandalized, (valuable artwork stabbed… electronics phone wiring cut… furniture and property burned with cigarettes… ad nauseum), robbed and after the most traumatic event of my entire life Airbnb deceitfully hiding Murders, Rapes, Beatings & Human Trafficking avoids me for 2 weeks then says: "GET LOST! LOSE OUR NUMBER! ATTEMPTS TO CONTACT US WILL BE IGNORED!" Ask the psychopath how many hundreds of thousands of innocent tenants are being evicted from their affordable homes to feed the vile and depraved greed which is Brian Chesky and Airbnb, ask the man how many murders, how many robberies, how many beatings, how many hammer attacks, how many stabbings, how much vandalism, how many brothels, how much prostitution, drug trafficking, human trafficking bloodshed and grief they are causing worldwide. Airbnb is an insidious cancer regurgitating from the bowels of Hades! This company going Public... the world has lost it! Watching that psychopath utter the word 'TRUST' in a recent interview is vomitous. Ask him about the disabled man in Toronto, Ontario who trusted Mr. Chesky and his 'so-called' sharing platform only to have his life destroyed and then told by Airbnb to (verbatim) "Get Lost! Lose our number! Attempts to contact us will be ignored!" I am left terrified, shattered and in shock and awe at the absolute cruelty and depravity of the sociopaths running this company! I was already suffering from PTSD when Airbnb came into my life and further turned it upside down! I am haunted by this daily and will likely be haunted by this to my dying day! This is a vile depraved company which should be banned IMMEDIATELY! YES I'm mad, I'm suffering and tormented daily! I want the world to know just what kind of people... what kind of disgusting, immoral, illegal and depraved company Airbnb is.

Hotels have had guest black lists since the beginning of time. Why shouldn't homeowners who rent a room on Airbnb?
