5 things all good hosts do — and how they do it

There's a special feeling that comes over you when you're halfway through the perfect dinner at a friend's house. She always manages to do this, your friend make you feel like the evening could go on forever and you wouldn't mind. Her last dinner was like this, too. You just really enjoyed yourself, and you're not sure how she did it. Was it the food, the lighting, the people? You didn't feel the need to pull out your phone even once, and that never happens.
True hospitality is subtle, as I've written before. You don't realize you're getting it until after you're already feeling totally comfortable. One way to figure out the secrets of a superb host? Start with the end result, the good feelings that you, the guest, experience. Here are five things a good host makes you feel, and how the

shock elimination as tziporah malkah solves sockgate

Spoiler alertTziporah Malkah possibly saw it coming. "Third time is a charm," she told hosts Julia Morris and Chris Brown when they said she was among the possible evictees.After her name was called and some very banal goodbyes, the camp clapped off the ex-model, formerly known as Kate Fischer. But not before Malkah solved sockgate and left campmates with a strange medley dedication.

airbnb agrees to register all hosts in san francisco

In 2015, San Francisco passed a law that required all short-term rental hosts to register with the city. According to San Francisco only about 2,100 of the estimated 8,000 hosts have placed their properties in the registry. Now all Airbnb hosts will be automatically placed in the city's database."This agreement helps protect the city's precious housing supply by obligating these companies to ensure that all their listings are legal and properly registered. This is a game changer. The settlement will also make it easier for residents who follow the rules to supplement their income by renting out a spare room or their home while on vacation," said city attorney David Herrera in a statement.Airbnb spokesperson Christopher Nulty told Engadget, "similar to other agreements we have established w

barb from stranger things just got cast in every musical theater nerd’s dream sh

There's good news and bad news for Stranger Things fans that were wondering what the hell happened to Barb (Shannon Purser). The good news: She's got a new show! The bad news: Guess that means she's 100 percent, indisputably donezo with the Upside Down.As Stranger Things gears up for its second season, Purser is keeping busy with a recurring role on Riverdale. And now she's got what could be another teen hit on the horizon. CNN reports that Purser has been cast in the pilot of NBC's Drama High.

the reasons of self-doubt and steps to deal with it.

We have all been there.At some points in our lives, we all question ourselves whether we are doing good enough, what consider as successful or are we capable for all the uncertainties that might come up as we grow older. We doubt about decisions and choices we made or simply feeling “I am just not good enough for that.”That’s what we called- Self-doubt. Self-doubt occurs when we are lack of confidence or feeling incapable of doing things we need to do. People who doubt about themselves panic about things would go out of control or not going the way as they expected.A Certain level of self-doubt is good because it indicates you understand what you need to improve in order to do a better job! (just remember that doesn’t mean what you are doing is not good!) However, persistent fear and self-

billboard music awards hosts ludacris & vanessa hudgens on first impressions, fa

As those who have tuned into the past three Billboard Music Awards know, Ludacris is no stranger to the role of host -- the 2017 BBMAs marks the rapper's fourth year in a row as the night's emcee. While he's reached veteran status, though, his co-host this year, Vanessa Hudgens, is just getting her feet wet. The BBMAs are her first hosting gig ever.In addition to this being Hudgens' first go at playing host, the BBMAs also happen to be the singer's first encounter with Ludacris. Despite the fact that they'd never even met prior to their arrival in Las Vegas for BBMAs weekend, Ludacris insists that their chemistry was instant."We already have a dynamic going," Ludacris told Billboard shortly after the two were introduced. "It’s a natural dynamic -- she’s just a naturally good energy person,

how to stay focused on competition day — even when things go wrong

However much we have prepared, things don't always go exactly to plan on competition day. Top riders tell us how they stay focused when their competition plans go adrift How do you cope when things go wrong on competition day?“I think you just do. You learn to. You just have to! It’s going to happen all the time in eventing where things don’t go to plan and you just have to be quick thinking and change the plan. Often I’ll set off on novices trying to be competitive and they’ll go a little green and I’ll change the plan from being competitive to trying to get a double clear. You have to do that constantly. You’re always trying to have the best result possible but sometimes the best result is a different result from what your plan A was.”“You can often feel everyone has seen [your mistake]!

3 things you should always take to a picnic

I've spent many years of my life living in and loving the city of Chicago, where interior spaces are small and people can't wait for the warmer months (40 below, no thank you). As soon as summer hits, folks flood the parks, beaches, and rooftops to host picnic after picnic.
Before you follow suit and head out, make sure you have these three things with you. You're almost guaranteed to need them!
Picnic baskets aren't hard to assemble; in fact, they're pretty straightforward despite their loosey-goosey nature. You just have to think about what you may need in a pinch. Here are three things you'll always find in my basket or bag at all times!

how worrying can actually be good for your health

do something about it, in order to feel better.RELATED: What Causes Hiccups and How to Get Rid of ThemWorrying about a future outcome can also help people brace for bad news, or make good news seem even better by comparison, Sweeny writes. That may be why even optimists tend to expect the worst about uncertain news, as her previous research has found.Sweeny stresses, however, that extreme worrying is still harmful to one’s health; rumination and repetitive thoughts have been associated with depressed mood, poor physical health, and even mental illness.She doesn’t advocate for excessive worrying, but she does hope to provide reassurance to the occasional worrier, the nitpicky planner, and the overly prepared person who has to mentally run though every detail of a scenario while others simpl

Researchers point to a common statistical bias -- the long-tail frequency distribution -- to explain how two seemingly contradictory facts can be true: Airbnb's claim that most hosts are ordinary people wringing extra money from an underused asset, and claims by home-sharing critics that most of Airbnb's revenue comes from operators running quasi h

how to know if the fda wants to regulate your prototype

It’s all good fun to 3D print a DNA extraction centrifuge, make a homebrew heart rate monitor, or build an Arduino-powered bioreactor. But as you delve deeper into the world of biohacking, you may eventually wonder if (or when) the government will take an interest in what you’re doing.There are lots of good reasons for government regulation here. When you take a drug, get a device implanted in you, or have a medical test done, it can be comforting to know that someone is ensuring that the drug isn’t poison, the device won’t explode inside you, and the medical test won’t insist that your ears are falling off (assuming that your ears aren’t actually falling off).The Spirit of ʼ76Read articles from the magazine right here on Make:.

when ​procrastination is good: putting things off can pay off

Whether you're putting off a report you have to write, stalling on a phone call you dread, or you just can't bring yourself to tackle that cleaning task you hate, procrastination plagues us all. Being in the clutches of procrastination often causes us to moan and groan and sheepishly admit it when we're caught. But procrastination does in fact have a bright side.
How Procrastinating Helps (For Real)
Since most of us can't help succumbing to the occasional bout of procrastination, comfort can be found in knowing how it can be a good thing.
Procrastination can keep perfectionism in check. If you start making your kid's homemade, meticulously decorated birthday cake two days in advance, you have that much more time to obsess about the details. But if you wait to do it until much closer to

5 signs you need to replace your microwave

Of all the appliances (large or small) in your kitchen, the microwave tends to have the shortest lifespan around nine years or so. The good news? The new ones on the market are relatively inexpensive and you can get a decent one for less than $100.
How will you know if it's time to get a new one? Look for any of these five signs.
1. You hear loud noises while it's cooking.
That buzzing or banging you've been hearing lately? Yeah, that's not normal. If you peek inside and see that your plate is hitting the walls of the microwave or the turntable is off its base, either of those things could be the culprit. Try cleaning and reassembling the wheel and turntable.
If the plate is spinning just fine, look to see if there's splattered food in the vents covering the blade. If there is, give

luke bryan, dierks bentley say it's 'game on!' for acm awards

By the time the 52nd annual Academy of Country Music Awards airs April 2 on CBS, ­returning co-hosts Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley will have their routines down pat.“I’m excited to come back for my fifth year as a co-host,” says Bryan, before good-naturedly busting Bentley’s chops. “Now that Dierks has a year under his belt, maybe he will actually bring something to the table.“Kidding!” jokes Bryan. “Dierks is a blast, and we have been working on ideas for months. It’s game on!”For Bentley, the training wheels are off. “Last year I was the rookie and really didn’t know what to expect,” he says. “From start to finish, being part of the creative conversations from the monologue to my performance makes the whole experience ­something I look that much more forward to this year.

is google a good oem? this famous developer thinks so

Google’s way of handling the Nexus program was an interesting one. Manufacturers would bring their ideas to the table, only to let the Search Giant select the right partner each year. Google worked with HTC, Samsung, LG, Motorola, Huawei, and ASUS to make some of the most desirable smartphones and tablets this industry has seen.Things changed once the Mountain View tech giant decided to flip the table over and take charge of things. Now they run both the software and hardware sides of the spectrum. Needless to say Google Pixel devices have been outstanding, but how good is Google as an OEM, really? Can they meet the expectations set by experienced manufacturers?Popular developer Francisco Franco believes so, for a few reasons. Francisco has worked as an independent developer, mostly with c

india vs australia, 3rd test day 2: kl rahul guides hosts to 120/1

Australia hoped to take their scorecard 500 par on day 2 but some fantastic bowling by left-arm-orthodox Ravindra Jadeja has completely shattered their dream. Steve Smith remained unbeaten on 178* (361b, 4s x 17) at the end of Australia’s first innings, but wickets kept falling from the other end. He stuck to the ground for 412 minutes without offering any dismissing opportunity to the hosts.Brilliant effort with the ball in hand from Ravindra JadejaGlenn Maxwell, who was unbeaten last evening, eventually got his ton in 180 balls with 9 boundaries and 2 sixes.

Things was already a great to-do app, and now it's better than ever, if that's even possible.Things was just updated with its third major overhaul. Things has always been a top-notch task manager app, but this iteration is its absolute best. The developers of Things has finally found the prefect balance of easy use and robust features. It's definitely a worthy replacement for Wunderlist, even without real-time list-sharing support. I'm loving it, and I think you will too. Here's why.Things is completely redesigned, and I mean completelyI've always loved how Things works on Mac. It's very simple and doesn't get bogged down with a confusing and complex interface.

presstv-bayern munich 1-2 real madrid

The UEFA Champions League and La Liga leaders Real Madrid have come back from a goal down to defeat their German hosts Bayern Munich 2-1 in the first leg of their quarter final tie at the Allianz Arena.The Bavarians were looking pretty good in the first half and got themselves ahead after 25 minutes of play on Wednesday when Arturo Vidal powered a header into the net following a great delivery from Thiago Alcantara to make it 1-0.After the goal, Bayern were still in control before Vidal missed a penalty on the brink of halftime which allowed Los Blancos to come back to the game shortly after the break. The visitors leveled the scoring at 1-piece when Daniel Carvajal’s cross was expertly swept into the bottom-left corner by Portuguese ace Cristiano Ronaldo.Things then got even worse for the

roosters coach trent robinson challenges luke keary to improve after starring in

He could be the buy of the season and won man of the match honours, but it didn't stop Luke Keary from being caught in Roosters coach Trent Robinson's crosshairs after the Tricolours recorded their best ever start under the premiership-winning coach.Last year's second-from-bottom strugglers won their opening two games to start the season for the first time under Robinson in a brutal 28-24 victory over the Bulldogs at Allianz Stadium on Thursday night.
Man of the match: Luke Keary. But both sides are set to count the cost in coming weeks.It was Keary's display - laying on three of the hosts' five tries - which won wide plaudits. But it was tempered by his coach's frank post-game assessment."Reallgood first half, disappointing second half," Robinson said. "That inside shoulder for that t

late-night hosts mock trump's health care bill

President Trump celebrated after the House of Representatives voted on a health care bill designed to repeal and replace Obamacare, but late-night hosts weren't so overjoyed. Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah spoke about the new health care bill on Thursday's shows, largely panning the bill and those it left behind.Late Night's Meyers skewered the plan in a "Closer Look" segment, calling out members of Congress who voted on the bill without ever reading it. "The bill literally takes from the poor and gives to the rich," Meyers said, "it's exactly what Bernie Sanders warned us about.""To get the bill passed today, Republicans added new things that made it even worse," he joked about the new version of the bill, which allows states to opt out of Obamacare's ban on pre-existing con
