About Bed Surge:

Just how much money could you make by giving up your home when there is a big event in town, such as Cardiff Final 2017 Championship League.

That’s the $64,000 question a new Welsh high-tech start-up – BedSurge.com is determined to help you answer.

BedSurge.com Co-Founders Fabrizio Gulino (Left) and Aadil Mukhtar.

Two Cardiff-based entrepreneurs realised they could capitalise on the value of their city-centre flat, providing housing to continental football fans for over £1,000 a night and thought, “Why stop here and now others must want to do this?”.
Friends, Fabrizio Gulino 23 and Aadil Mukhtar 28, had a eureka moment when they realised that the supply and demand of hotel rooms during the final in June had gone bonkers – the final one of the largest ever sporting events to come to town, meant that their small home made a whopping £3,500 for a mere three-night let.
The two friends invested their new-found wealth into BedSurge.com – a new type of online letting agency that actively seeks out “surges in demand for properties worldwide” and then proactively seeks to attract more properties onto the market, using enthusiastic marketing ranging from door to door knocking to Facebook advertising.
Aadil, a former product consultant at Google, uses his knowledge of dynamic pricing to place the properties in ‘blocks’, and in doing so replicate a hotel’s ability to maximise returns as demand increases.
“Basically,” Aadil explains,“if the stock we have available is selling quickly our technology can calculate the data to work out the true value of the owners living space. Thus, optimising the benefit householders who have given us access to their homes; an individual can’t do this acting alone. This is why our proposition is unique – we achieve the critical mass of properties necessary for dynamic pricing.”
Aadil adds, “While the property owners get to sit back and relax during the event, we handle everything, access to the residence, providing the upscale hotel-equivalent customer service, and insurance protection. It’s a win for us, and a win for the property owners”. I am reaching out to tenants and landlords alike to make sure they don’t miss out on this huge opportunity. Seriously, this could pay for the holiday of a lifetime and make the Welsh capital a winning destination. 

Get in touch with BedSurge.com today. Text BEDS to 88802 or call 0800 689 0770.

Fabrizio, a Sicilian native who speaks fluent Italian and possesses extensive experience in the hospitality industry, will focus on the customer experience aspect while co-founder, Aadil, who earned an MBA at Cardiff University, will be the tech brain behind the venture. The two are determined to secure 400 extra properties to alleviate the overwhelming demand for accommodation during one of Europe’s biggest football extravaganzas!
“I realised what we needed to do” reflected Fabrizio, “we had to create a hotel-like experience for both the property owners and the travellers”.
“For example ” added Fabrizio, “we have a deal with a hotel linen provider so that the guest experience can be as close as possible to staying in an upscale hotel. To get more properties onto the market when a ‘Surge’ occurs we need to householders to give up their often family home, we make that easy and profitable. It’s a niche nobody else is focused on, encouraging families to sublet properties when prices are crazily high”.
When the final guests leave Cardiff on the 4th of June, the focus will immediately shift to whenever and wherever the next lucrative peak in hotel prices will occur worldwide.
Aadil, who was born in Kashmir, has decided to make the UK his home, believing it to be an ideal location to build a global technology company. The tech brain-box announced, “BedSurge.com will be a truly global company ready at the drop of a hat to travel to wherever in the world a pilgrim or a desperate football fanatic requires a roof over their heads (be that shelter a stable or a mansion).”
Already, a Gulf-based financier has expressed interest in investing in the new venture. 
“Simply but “, declared Fabrizio, “This business is driven by simple arithmetic. The Principality stadium holds close to 75,000 spectators while we have little over 5,000 hotel rooms.”
BedSurge.com can be contacted in the following ways and is willing to speak with anyone who could make Cardiff Final 2017 a better experience for travelling sports fans, irrespective of the size of their property or terms of occupancy.

Our goal is to be the World’s Largest Virtual Hotel and it starts right here, in Cardiff.

Review and Pictures from the Recent Introbiz Business Event at Hensol Castle…

  
I had a great time at the Introbiz networking event at Hensol Castle last week and enjoyed listening to the key note speakers.

  
Mark Wright had some very useful business tips and an interesting story and it was great to meet the former Apprentice Winner, who is now working with Lord Sugar. Shame he was a little under the weather and hope is back on top form sometime soon.

Also there was a very inspiring talk from Olympic and World Champion Athlete Jamie Baulch who I managed to grab a selfie with as well as grab a picture with his Olympic silver medal.

  
  
  
The event was great and well done to Paul and Tracey and the team for putting on such a great event.

A major road improving links to Cardiff Bay and easing congestion in the city centre will play a major part in delivering a successful UEFA Champions League final….

The new Eastern Bay Link Road in Cardiff is nearing completion and it’s set to play an important role in the City of Cardiff’s short and long term plans for hosting major events here in Wales.

Please find some info release by the Welsh Government recently which goes in to a bit more detail about this £57m project.

Credit: Welsh Government
A major road improving links to Cardiff Bay and easing congestion in the city centre will play a major part in delivering a successful UEFA Champions League final, Economy Secretary Ken Skates has said, during a recent visit to see the progress on the new £57m Eastern Bay link road project.

The Economy Secretary spoke of the impact such infrastructure projects can have on the local and wider economy, particularly in a city like Cardiff that regularly hosts major sport and cultural events.

The Economy Secretary Ken Skates said:

“It’s great to see the Eastern Bay link road project nearing completion. The new road will provide both Cardiff and Cardiff Bay with a major boost by greatly improving access, connections and journey times.”

“And, of course, in the short term it will contribute to the success of the largest global sporting event of 2017”

– The UEFA Champions League Final being hosted in Cardiff this Summer

Me Skates then went on to add:

“The Welsh Government’s record in attracting major events to Wales is something I am extremely proud of. We already have a strong reputation as a world class host and we will continue to work to build on that, through June’s Champions League final and next year’s Volvo Ocean Race, amongst others”

“These are events which will see hundreds of thousands of extra visitors coming to Wales and to Cardiff in particular and it’s imperative that our infrastructure matches our ambition. The link road will be open to buses and coaches for the duration of the Champions League final weekend – providing quick and easy access to and from Cardiff Bay, and will be open to all vehicles shortly after the event.”

“This summer we look forward to attracting visitors from all over the world and I’m delighted that we will be able to do so with this major link road in place.”

City of Cardiff Council Leader Cllr Phil Bale added:

“I am delighted that the Eastern Bay Link Road will be open to coaches and buses in time for the Champions League Final in June.”

“With many thousands of football fans heading to Cardiff by coach for the game, the new link road will play a major part in helping to ease the flow of traffic around the city during what is sure to be one of the greatest sporting events the capital has ever hosted.”

The Eastern Bay Link Road runs from Rover way to Cardiff bay and will ease conjestion around the Magic Roundabout and Ocean Way area of the City.

DR-SR Beauty Clinics in Newport

doctor-sr-beauty-clinic-cover-2

ANTI -WRINKLE INJECTIONS FROM BEAUTY CLINIC IN NEWPORT

Botulinum toxin is a natural substance that comes from plants and animals and in high doses is highly poisonous (hence ‘toxin’). However, it can be injected into humans in extremely small concentrations and works by preventing signals from the nerve cells reaching muscles, effectively leaving the muscles without instructions to contract, therefore paralyzing them.24Injected botulinum toxin prevents the release of acetylcholine, preventing contraction of the muscle cells. The effect of botulinum toxin causes a reduction in abnormal muscle contraction allowing the muscles to become more relaxed.

Botox TM was first introduced in 1989 to treat specific problems of the eye muscles. Since then its range of use for medical and cosmetic purposes has grown considerably. Today, it can be used to treat bladder problems, limb spasticity, facial spasms, migraines, hyperhidrosis (excess sweating), and of course wrinkle formation.

Botulinum toxin is manufactured under several different names from large and reputable pharmaceutical and chemical companies. In the DR-SR Beauty clinic, they use Botox TM by the company Allergan, which is the original product launched in 1989 and remains the most popular to date. Millions of clients have been effectively treated with Botox TM. They also use Xeomin from the company Merz, which is a product with very similar characteristics.

WHAT DO THEY TREAT?

The DR-SR Beauty Clinic use botulinum toxin to relax the muscles of the face to prevent wrinkle formation. The process takes about 15-20 minutes depending on the number of muscles treated, and the effect lasts about 3 months in most people. The needles used are extremely small and the procedure involves very little pain relative to other injections one may receive medically. The effect usually takes 3-5 days to become apparent, with up to 2 weeks for the full visible effects.

THE 3 MOST COMMON AREAS TO BE TREATED ARE

The glabellar muscle – this is the muscle at the top of the nose which causes the characteristic ’11 lines’ when frowning. Over time, these lines become more permanent. Botulinum toxin in this muscle reduces the formation of these lines.

The forehead – when eyebrows are raised in surprise, your forehead frontalis muscle forms horizontal lines. Botulinum toxin prevents this. This is of the most popular areas in newscasters and actors (watch for this on TV). Note that to treat the forehead, the glabellar must be done at the same time.

The crows’ feet – the muscles around the eyes do a lot of work when you smile. You’ll notice how these areas wrinkle especially at the side of the eyes. Again, over time these become permament. Note that treating both eyes counts as a single ‘area’ of treatment

Botulinum toxin can also be used to treat other areas of the face in combination with other treatments – the clinicians can discuss these with you.

HYPERHIDROSIS

Excess sweating affects 1 in 100 people in the UK and mainly involves the armpits, palms and the feet. It can be extremely distressing and difficult to treat. Injections of botulinum toxin into these areas has been shown to reduce the amount of sweat produced markedly and safely, although the effect is variable and not permanent. It is a far safer option than surgery. The armpits are the most commonly treated area. The process takes about 30-45 minutes.

FILLER TREATMENTS FROM BEAUTY CLINIC IN NEWPORT

The fundamental working principle of dermal fillers is that they have a ‘plumping’ effect. This simply implies that they will plump-up the area which has received the injection, levelling it with other parts of the skin and making it look plumped out, even and no longer sunken. Ultimately, different fillers may achieve this goal in slightly different ways, but the result is that the skin will look plump and firm, young and refreshed. The most common dermal fillers used are based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in the skin which creates the ‘cement’ between the cells making up the wall of the skin. As we age, the cement wears away and the volume gradually depletes, thus the skin looks more sunken and hollowed. By artificially reintroducing the cement, we return the volume to the areas to restore the youthful look. These fillers are by their nature temporary, and the effect usually lasts 6-9 months. Unlike most treatments, fillers provide an almost immediate effect which continues to improve over subsequent days.

WHERE CAN FILLERS BE USED?

Dermal fillers are primarily used in the face to restore lost volume. These will be most evident in several key areas

Nasolabial folds – these are the lines which pass from the side of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. They are the most noticeable of areas for volume loss in the face, and the most commonly and easily correctable with fillers.

Marionette lines – these lines drop down from the corners of the mouth to the chin and give the impression of the old-style ventriloquist doll, or ‘marionette’.

Forehead and crows-feet lines – these wrinkles become more permanent as we age as the muscles involved are always active in our expressions. In combination with botulinum toxin, these can be very effectively treated.

Lips – these are a very popular treatment area for those who require a fuller look to their lips. We will be offering this treatment soon.

beautiful-hollywood-lips-in-newport

Cheek augmentation – over the years the cheeks, which have a plump and youthful appearance to start, lose volume and flatten out. In some cases they become hollow or indented. Fillers can be used very effectively in these areas.

WHAT KINDS OF FILLERS DO THEY USE?

The DR-SR Beauty Clinic in Newport use Juvederm Ultra and Belotero in the clinic. These both have excellent safety and effectiveness records, and they both have lidocaine added. This is a local anaesthetic that makes for a much more comfortable procedure.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Firstly the DR-SR clinician assesses exactly what is needed to get the best results, the amount of filler required of course depends on the area treated. A numbing cream is applied to the area for 45 minutes to allow the maximum comfort for the procedure. The injections themselves require 15-20 minutes, more if several areas are treated.

The skill is not in knowing how much needs to be used, but how little.

CHEMICAL PEEL TREATMENTS FROM BEAUTY CLINIC IN NEWPORT

If you have ever thought that your skin is starting to show the effects of time, you may wish that there was a way to restore the youthful ‘glow’ to your face. You may even have tried some of the many ‘anti-ageing’ serums on the market, that provide only a very mild improvement. If you are looking for a more effective solution, you may wish to consider a chemical peel.

Chemical peels are a powerful exfoliant that remove the dead skin layers from the outer ‘crust’ of the skin, revealing the younger, fresher layers underneath. They also even out the skin texture and coloration, hence their use in age spots. Peels used in the clinic are much more powerful than commercially available exfoliants, although they can be used in combination. These peels range from mild ‘lunchtime peels’ through to more intense peels that remove more layers of skin.

What do they treat?

As well as an excellent exfoliating treatment to make the skin feel smoother and younger, peels can also be used to treat acne and acne scars, rosacea, pigmented areas. They can reduce fine lines under the eyes or around the mouth, and reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.

How many treatments are needed?

This depends very much on the type of skin you have, and what they are treating. Usually a course of treatments will be either 4 or 6 in total for the maximum benefit. In addition, creams will need to be applied during the period between treatments. Your doctor will discuss what combination of treatments will work best for your face at your consultation.

How long does a treatment take?

Between 15-30 minutes.

Can any skin colour be treated?

Most certainly. The darker the skin, the more powerful the peel needs to be. Again, your doctor will be able to advise on this at your assessment.

What do they use?

The mildest peels are called AHA, or alpha-hydroxy acid peels. These are made from naturally occurring acids found in fruits and other foods, and have been used for treating the skin since the days of the ancient Egyptians. AHA can be found in many commercially available preparations, but by law only concentrations of 10% or less may be sold over the counter and provide a limited effect only. We use concentrations of 20% upwards. These give an immediate freshness and glow to the skin that you’d forgotten you once had.

The stronger peels are called TCA, (Tri-Chlor acetic acid), which cause 3-7 days of peeling depending upon depth achieved. Results achieved will be smoother, firmer, fresher skin. We call this a ‘resurfacing’ peel as a lot more skin layers are removed with TCA. We use 15 – 20% TCA.

The Obagi Deep Blue peel is like the ‘Lexus’ of Chemical peels. Obagi is a California-based cosmeceutical company that supplies to spas, cosmetic clinics and dermatologists all over the world. Highly sought after by those who demand the best, Obagi are the peels of choice for the discerning patient and clinician alike.
