          New Voices - entered!   
Well, I did it! My entry is up: Secrets & Speed Dating.

I would love to hear what you think!

Writing at the beach in Croatia
Thank goodness that's done :) It was written over the past week, while I've been in Vela Luka, Croatia. However, it turned out to be a little frustrating to write. My first version, I liked. After writing the first 2000 words, I happily emailed it to my amazing crit partners, confident that I was on the right track. I kept on typing, and by the time I heard back from them the next day, I had a good 3500 words down. For me - Captain Slow Writer - this was super sonic speed!

Sadly, what I'd written was crap. This took me a few hours to digest, as I'd been told in the nicest possible way :) But basically I'd lost my voice, it just wasn't "me".

Where had I gone wrong? I think the problem was I was trying to write what I thought Mills & Boon wanted. I think I figured that with the changes from Sweet/Romance to Cherish and Riva, that I was more a Cherish writer, so I need something a bit gentler than my normal style. Clearly, this was a stupid mistake - I'm not capable of this style, and my chapter featured a neurotic, unlikeable heroine and a plot that was going nowhere.

So, I started again. I was able to salvage much of the first scene, but the rest - thrown out. Almost 3000 words! And only three days to go before the deadline!

But, I managed it. I know it isn't perfect, but it's me. It is in my voice. So if it crashes and burns in the competition, and least I've got that.

At the beach with my own hero :)
Due to lack of consistent Internet (I need to buy it in 24 hour blocks) I've been lurking a bit on the New Voices web site, but there are some very impressive entries there. Including the work of some of my favourite bloggers! Here are their excellent entries:

Sorry if I've missed anyone!

Also, I must mention how sad I was to lose all of my (possibly overused) italics when I pasted in my entry. Poor italics :)

          Real life romance (and New Voices)   
Sorry to have been so absent - I will write a long, detailed, many-pictured blog post soon that covers my fabulous time at the Romance Writers of Australia conference.

But I DO have a good excuse. On arriving home from Sydney I immediately launched into last minute panicking (and packing) prior to leaving on a one month holiday to the UK and Croatia. Getting everything sorted at work, and the house half-decent for our house sitter, took up a stupid amount of time.

And then... on the Saturday afternoon before we left (our flight was 1am Sunday), my boyfriend and I took our dogs down to the park for a walk. We read the paper, ate fish and chips, and the dogs ran around in circles. Then I look up - and my boyfriend is on his knee, with the most incredible ring (box upside down). I cried for about a minute, so he had to ask me again... but of course I said yes.

It was at the park where we first met 3.5 years ago. He'd intended to ask me in Croatia, but thought that I'd want to be able to share it with my family and friends before we left. Plus he wanted the dogs to be there.

So I'm feeling incredibly happy, and incredibly lucky.

The last week has been a bit of a blur, can't quite believe I've been in London more than a week! But my visit to London turned out to be very timely, as I was able to attend one of the New Voices workshops. It was this afternoon in East Sheen, which is absolutely nowhere near where I'm staying with my sisters. So I was super brave and battled the tube strikes to take a combination of buses and the overland train to actually get to the library - and even be on time!

The editors gave a great overview of how to write for Mills & Boon, and I even got to take home some books - yay! It was great motivation to sit down and get my new chapter together and enter New Voices, which I'll do over the next week or so.

I've been very absent from blogland the past 10 days, I can't wait to read everyone's entries - it looks like competition will be fierce!!
          New country classifications by income level: 2017-2018   

Updated country income classifications for the World Bank’s 2018 fiscal year are available here.

The World Bank assigns the world's economies into four income groups — high, upper-middle, lower-middle, and low. We base this assignment on GNI per capita calculated using the Atlas method. The units for this measure and for the thresholds is current US Dollars.

At the Bank, these classifications are used to aggregate data for groups of similar countries. The income-category of a country is not one of the factors used that influence lending decisions.

Each year on July 1st, we update the classifications. They change for two reasons:

1. In each country, factors such as income growth, inflation, exchange rates, and population change, influence GNI per capita.

2. To keep the dollar thresholds which separate the classifications fixed in real terms, we adjust them for inflation.

The data for the first adjustment come from estimates of 2016 GNI per capita which are now available. This year, the thresholds have moved down slightly because of low price inflation and the strengthening of the US dollar. Click here for information about how the World Bank classifies countries.

Updated Thresholds

New thresholds are determined at the start of the Bank’s fiscal year in July and remain fixed for 12 months regardless of subsequent revisions to estimates. As of July 1 2017, the new thresholds for classification by income are:

Threshold GNI/Capita (current US$)
Low-income < 1,005
Lower-middle income 1,006 - 3,955
Upper-middle income 3,956 - 12,235
High-income > 12,235

Changes in Classification

The following countries have new income groups:

Country Old group New group
Angola Upper-middle Lower-middle
Croatia High-income Upper-middle
Georgia Upper-middle Lower-middle
Jordan Upper-middle Lower-middle
Nauru High-income Upper-middle
Palau Upper-middle High-income
Samoa Lower-middle Upper-middle
Tonga Lower-middle Upper-middle

The country and lending groups page provides a complete list of economies classified by income, region, and lending status and links to previous years’ classifications. The classification tables include all World Bank members, plus all other economies with populations of more than 30,000. The term country, used interchangeably with economy, does not imply political independence but refers to any territory for which authorities report separate social or economic statistics.

Tables showing 2016 GNI, GNI per capita, GDP, GDP PPP, and Population data are also available as part of the World Bank's Open Data Catalog. Note that these are preliminary estimates and may be revised. For more information, please contact us at data@worldbank.org.

          Cross-border transmission line losses calculation using adaptive Monte–Carlo method   
This study deals with calculation of transmission line losses. Having in mind that this type of losses, besides the line load and the other external input quantities such as atmospheric conditions, strongly depends on measurement uncertainty as well, the issue can be considered through finding the most convenient approach in calculation of measurement uncertainty. In this respect, two approaches (methods) are the most common: traditional method based on the guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement (GUM) and the adaptive Monte–Carlo method (AMC). The study reveals the main disadvantages of the GUM, which is so far considered as a most accurate method. The observed drawbacks of the GUM can be successfully overcome by using of the AMC method. The comparison between the methods is performed on 110kV cross-border transmission line from Croatian Transmission System Operator Ltd. The results show the great difference in the estimated variances, i.e. GUM variances are significantly overestimated what results in incorrect transmission losses allocation procedure with respect to its final financial effect. The study confirms that the AMC method is likely to be more practically suitable method for transmission line resistance and losses calculation.
          he the hell where BC Donetsk is   

BC Donetsk got closer to complete its roster for the upcoming Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Rounds by inking shooting guard DeMarcus Nelson and big man Vitaly Kovalenko to respective one-year deals. Kovalenko (2.01 meters, 27 years old) arrives from BC Kyiv, where he averaged 10.6 points and 4.5 rebounds in 46 Ukrainian League games last season. He has also played for Cherkassy Monkeys and Budivelnik in Ukraine, as well as for Znicz Jaroslaw in Poland. Kovalenko has been a member of the Ukrainian national team. Nelson (1.93 meters, 25 years old) arrives from Cholet Basket, where he averaged 9.2 points and 3.3 rebounds in 10 Euroleague games last season. Nelson made a name for himself playing college basketball at the famed Duke University, where he was team captain for his senior year. He was also named the Atlantic Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year and to the All-ACC First Team after the 2007-08 season. The next year Nelson played for Golden State in the NBA, averaging 4.1 points in 13 appearances, and for Austin and Bakersfield in the NBDL, where he posted 19.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 20 games. He also played briefly in Croatia for KK Zagreb that season. He joined Air Avellino in 2009-10 before making his Euroleague debut with Cholet last season. Donetsk also signed three players - Vadim Myakinin, Andrei Korochkin and Ilya Shemosyuk - to respective one-month deals, with an option to keep them for the entire season.

          Bush urges independence for Kosovo   
By JENNIFER LOVEN, Associated Press Writer 6 minutes ago
TIRANA, Albania - President Bush, getting a hero's welcome as the first American president to visit this Balkan nation, said Sunday that there cannot be endless dialogue about achieving independence for neighboring Kosovo.


"Sooner rather than later you've got to say `Enough's enough. Kosovo's independent,'" Bush said during a news conference with the prime minister of this tiny, impoverished country.

Bush's press for statehood was aimed at Russia and others that object to Kosovo's independence. Standing alongside Prime Minister Sali Berisha, Bush said any extension of talks on Kosovo must have "certain independence" as the goal.

In response to Albania's push for NATO membership, Bush said additional political and military reforms were needed before that could be considered — something the country's leaders said they understood.

"We are determined to take any decision, pass any law and undertake any reform to make Albania appropriate to receive the invitation" to join the western military alliance, Berisha said.

When Bush arrived to begin his brief visit, the hills overlooking the capital boomed as military cannons fired a 21-gun salute, and thousands gathered in a downtown square on a brilliantly sunny day to see him and first lady Laura Bush.

Huge banners proclaimed "Proud to be Partners" and billboards said "President Bush in Albania Making History." Red-white-and-blue paper top hats with stars on top were passed out to well-wishers.

"It is a bright day today when in our land there came the greatest and most distinguished friend we have had in all our times, the president of the U.S.A., leader of the free world," Berisha said.

Albania also issued three postage stamps with Bush's picture and the Statue of Liberty, and renamed a street in front of parliament in his honor.

Bush said he was proud to be the first sitting American president to visit. "I love to come to countries that are working hard to establish institutions necessary for democracies to survive," he said.

The issue of independence for the Serbian province of Kosovo is another issue on which the U.S. and Russia disagree.

Russia, an ally of Serbia, contends independence for Kosovo would set a dangerous precedent for the world's other breakaway regions. Serbia also opposes statehood for Kosovo, which it sees as the heart of its historic homeland.

The U.S. and key European countries that support Kosovo independence are trying to narrow differences with Russia over the future of Kosovo, which has been administered by the U.N. since a 1999 war between Serb forces and ethnic Albanian rebels. The U.N. Security Council is divided over the issue.

Last month, the U.S. and European nations introduced a revised U.N. resolution supporting independence for Kosovo under international supervision, but it was immediately rejected by Russia — which hinted it would veto the measure.

The new draft addressed Russia's concern that Kosovo's multiethnic character is preserved, but left out Russia's main proposal for new negotiations between the province's majority ethnic Albanians, who demand independence, and its minority Serbs, who want to remain part of Serbia.

"I happen to believe it's important to push the process along," Bush said. "The time is now. ... Secretary (of State Condoleezza) Rice will be moving hard to see if we can't reach an agreement. If not, we're going to have to move. Independence is the goal."

Russia also opposes NATO's spread into eastern Europe, and is concerned about the prospect that its neighbors Ukraine and Georgia may be brought into the western military alliance.

Berisha said 93 percent of his country's people support NATO membership for Albania.

Bush said he commended Berisha on Albania's progress on reforming its defense forces and meeting performance-based standards required for membership. "I look forward to welcoming you sometime into NATO," he said.

But he said additional political and military reforms were needed, along with more progress in fighting organized crime and corruption. Berisha said he understood and is committed to making the changes.

"I said, 'We're committed to help you,'" Bush said.

In saluting Albania's democracy, Bush praised it as a country that has "cast off the shackles of a very oppressive society and is now showing the world what's possible."

During the visit, Bush met with Albanian President Alfred Moisiu and greeted troops who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Albania recently decided to triple its deployment in Afghanistan to 140 troops. It also has about 120 troops in Iraq — a presence that Moisiu says will not end as long as Americans are engaged there.

Bush also had lunch with the prime ministers of Albania, Macedonia and Croatia, which hope to join NATO next year.
          Opponents of new Kosovo must be stopped - Joseph Biden   
By Joseph Biden
Published: January 2 2007 19:12 | Last updated: January 2 2007 19:12
Years of hand-wringing and chest-thumping over the future status of Kosovo may finally be drawing to a close. In the next few months, adroit diplomacy to secure Kosovo’s independence could yield a victory for Muslim democracy, a better future for south-east Europe and validation for the judicious use of American power.

But along with the potential for triumph in Kosovo, there is a growing risk that Serbia and Russia will conspire to seize defeat from the jaws of victory. Extremists in Belgrade and Moscow are – for very different reasons – hoping to use Russia’s United Nations Security Council veto to quash Kosovo’s bid for independence. If they succeed, the Balkans will emerge as another source of bad news in a world already crowded with crises.


ADVERTISEMENT
During the seven years since Nato ended Slobodan Milosevic’s reign of terror in Kosovo, a UN-backed administration has largely succeeded in bringing stability to the province. However, Kosovo’s people are justifiably tired of a status quo marked by uncertainty and economic privation. These two intertwined problems will continue so long as the debate over the province’s future remains unresolved. Its ambiguous status is also leading to stagnation in Serbia.

Nationalist politicians in Belgrade have embraced the fight against Kosovo’s independence to divert public attention from their own failures and Serbia’s stalled bid for European Union membership. The actions of Vojislav Kostunica, Serbia’s prime minister, have been particularly disappointing. In addition to refusing international requests to call for the arrest of war crimes fugitives Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic, Mr Kostunica has rejected every attempt at compromise on Kosovo. Serbia’s moral authority on the issue hit a new low in October when the 1.5m ethnic Albanian residents of the province were denied the right to vote in a deeply flawed constitutional referendum that declared Kosovo an integral part of Serbia.

To their great credit, the people of Serbia have proved more realistic about Kosovo than their elected leaders. Opinion polls show that many Serbs foresee that the province will gain independence. Ethnic Albanians in Kosovo, meanwhile, overwhelmingly expect to sever ties with Serbia. With citizens on both sides of the issue ready to finish the debate and move on to more constructive challenges, leaders who block a solution will do so at their peril.

Historically, trouble in the Balkans is almost always the result of false expectations. On the whole, the citizens of south-east Europe are mentally prepared for an independent Kosovo.

If Belgrade postpones a settlement it will reopen the issue for many Serbs previously resigned to Kosovo’s independence and further inflame frustrations among the region’s ethnic Albanians. The result could be a return of the mob violence that shook Kosovo in March 2004.

A Russian effort to delay a deal on Kosovo would be in keeping with the Kremlin’s habit of fostering weak, subservient governments in formerly communist states. Moscow has apparently reached the conclusion that impoverished, unstable regimes are easier targets for manipulation than prosperous, independent countries. It has made extensive, public use of oil and gas diplomacy to undermine the budding democracies of eastern Europe. Less attention has focused on the Kremlin’s quiet efforts to exacerbate territorial conflicts in Georgia, Moldova and Azerbaijan. Serbia could become the latest victim of this strategy.

Kosovo is not ready for full sovereignty. Even after independence, Nato and the international community will need to provide security guarantees for Kosovo’s minorities and strengthen its economy and institutions. But it is time to grant the province independence. The longer the status debate continues, the further Kosovo and Serbia will fall behind other rapidly progressing former Yugoslav republics such as Croatia and Slovenia.

Success in Kosovo, if realised, will have implications far beyond the Balkans. A responsible Russian approach to the issue could demonstrate the Kremlin’s commitment to global order at a time when its credibility is in tatters. The people of Kosovo – already the most pro-American in the Islamic world – will provide a much-needed example of a successful US-Muslim partnership. Stability in south-east Europe would be a welcome bit of good news and offer hope in a season of tremendous foreign policy challenges.

          Jailed war crimes suspect to top his party's ballot list in Serbia's election   
BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) - Vojislav Seselj, a war crimes suspect charged with being part of a plot to murder, torture and expel non-Serbs during the 1990s Balkans wars, will top his party's ballot list in Serbia's upcoming general elections, his aide said Monday.

Seselj is currently in jail in the Netherlands awaiting the start of his trial by the Hague-based U.N. war crimes tribunal. He is first on the ultranationalist Serbian Radical Party's list of candidates in the Jan. 21 parliamentary vote, the party's campaign chief Dragan Todorovic told the state Tanjug news agency.

Seselj's placement at the top of the ticket practically guarantees him a seat in Serbia's next parliament after the elections. His party's ballot list will be called "the Serbian Radical Party -Vojislav Seselj," Todorovic said.

Seselj ruled Serbia with former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic during the Balkan wars. His extremist party holds 80 seats in Serbia's 250-seat assembly and will be the chief challenger to several pro-democratic groups.

Seselj's party, which he heads from jail in the Netherlands, said he started a hunger strike last week demanding the tribunal grant him free choice of legal advisers, unrestricted spousal visits and an unconditional right to conduct his own defense.

He has lost 11 kilograms (24 pounds) since starting the hunger strike, the Radical Party said in a statement Monday, adding that Seselj "was aware of the (health) risks ... but will not give up" his demands and will continue refusing to be examined by physicians at the detention facility.

Seselj has pleaded innocent to nine charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity for allegedly being part of a criminal plot to murder, torture and illegally imprison non-Serbs in Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo in the wars during the breakup of Yugoslavia.

His trial is scheduled to start Nov. 27. He voluntarily turned himself in to The Hague tribunal in 2003.
          EU urges Serbia to cooperate with U.N. effort to resolve status for Kosovo   
The European Union urged Serbia on Wednesday to "take a constructive approach" in negotiating the future of its breakaway Kosovo province and said it must cooperate with the U.N.'s war crimes tribunal if it wants closer ties with the EU.Serbia and its Balkan neighbors must also do more to tackle corruption and step up political and reforms needed to prepare them for eventual EU membership, according to the EU's annual progress reports on the prospects of would-be EU members."I trust that Serbian citizens as well as political leaders now focus less on the nationalist past and more on the European future, that's best for Serbia, that's best for the western Balkans," EU Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn told reporters after the release of the EU reports."On Kosovo, we expect Serbia to take a constructive approach," he added.The EU's report on Serbia reiterated that steps toward eventual membership were suspended until Serbia proves it is fully cooperating with the U.N. war crimes tribunal and hands over top war crimes suspect Gen. Ratko Mladic.The report said the EU was also concerned over Serbia's new constitution, warning it did not fully guarantee judges' independence. It also called on Belgrade to intensify its fight against corruption and ensure full civilian control over its armed forces.On Kosovo, the EU report acknowledged that the focus on the sensitive status negotiations led by the U.N. "has delayed significant reform efforts."It said the province's administration "remains weak, affecting the rule of law," adding that judicial bodies there have made "little progress" in civil and criminal justice.Separate reports were also released on Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Albania.On Croatia already opened entry talks with the EU last year and hopes to join in 2009. However, the report said there was "considerable scope" for improving the nation's judicial system and its fight against corruption. It also called on Zagreb to ensure better protection of minorities and to solve its border dispute with EU member Slovenia.Croatia's President Stipe Mesic said the critical report on his country showed it had to follow through on reforms. "It is easy to pass the laws, but it is much harder to implement them," he said in Zagreb. "It all depends on us."The EU warned Macedonia over its problems with corruption. It said reforms must go faster, if wants to get a starting date for membership talks.

          Manchester United Transfer News: Latest Rumours on Fabinho and Ivan Perisic   

Mooted Manchester United transfer target Fabinho has reportedly agreed terms with Paris Saint-Germain, despite the latter having a bid worth €45 million rejected by the player's club, AS Monaco.

A report from Goal's Loic Tanzi detailed PSG's initial offer for the versatile Brazilian: "Monaco have rebuffed that approach and are understood to be reluctant to do business with a domestic rival."

However, as Tanzi also pointed out, the player himself is keen on a move to Monaco's Ligue 1 rival: "The 23-year-old is understood to have already agreed a contract with PSG and is now waiting on Monaco to reach a compromise."

The idea Fabinho has already agreed terms with PSG will come as a blow for United after the Red Devils have been heavily linked with the player in recent days. In fact, United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly enamoured with Fabinho's ability to act as a holding midfielder or play right-back, according to Jack Pitt-Brooke of The Independent.

There is no doubt Fabinho would be an asset if United could get a deal done. He was a terrific workhorse during Monaco's title-winning campaign last season.

His ability to operate at the base of midfield would be welcome at a club where Mourinho is seeking new options in deep areas. United have been linked with Tottenham Hotspur's Eric Dier, AS Roma's Radja Nainggolan and Nemanja Matic of Premier League champions Chelsea, per Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph.

In terms of playing right-back, United could make 23-year-old Fabinho the obvious successor for 31-year-old Antonio Valencia. However, it looks increasingly as if United will have to enter a bidding war if Mourinho is determined to land Fabinho.

It may not be worth it, given how much Mourinho's squad could use new, more prolific options up front.

      

Inter Milan Winger Ready to Force United Move

One target Mourinho may have an easier time securing is Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic. In fact, United's manager is reportedly prepared to offer Italian full-back Matteo Darmian to Inter to make a deal happen, per Gianluca Di Marzio (h/t David Wright of the Daily Express).

Di Marzio has reported United's bid of £34 million isn't enough for Perisic, and Darmian could be used to make up the difference. However, the Red Devils may not need to give up Darmian if Perisic forces his way out of Inter.

The 28-year-old reportedly intends to force a move to Old Trafford now the Nerazzurri no longer need to sell him to meet financial fair play requirements.

Goal's Kris Voakes detailed how Inter have met FFP standards without selling Perisic: "The Nerazzurri believe they have managed to stave off sanctions by UEFA thanks to a number of smaller deals which have raised the €30 million they needed by the June 30 deadline, cancelling out the immediate need to offload Perisic."

As Voakes pointed out, United want to sign Perisic, but for less than the €45 million Inter are demanding for the Croatia international. It could happen if the player forces the issue, per Voakes: "And Goal understands his new negotiator, Fali Ramadani, has been given orders to take a far more aggressive approach in helping the 28-year-old to make a move this summer, leaving United in a healthy bargaining position when it comes to a transfer fee."

United don't want to pay more than €30 million, according to Voakes. Offering Darmian to sweeten the deal looks like the ideal compromise in this situation.

The full-back may have played well towards the end of last season, but he still looks unlikely to be a regular in Mourinho's preferred starting XI in the new campaign.

It also appears unlikely Fabinho will be involved, as PSG continue to circle.

          Toni Vary, a Café Musician   


Remember that time we went to...?
What was the name of that place?
Wasn't he grandpa's uncle's cousin's son?
Oh, yes, I remember now!

Why does someone save an old postcard?
How can such small photos
retain a magical power
that compels a person to preserve it?
What mysterious voice
gives it this seductive charm?
A kind of siren's call that whispers,
"Save me! Protect me!"
forcing the possessor to entomb this paper relic
into some shoe box or desk drawer.  

These are questions I often think about
as I search the websites of postcard dealers.
And the only answer that makes sense to me
is memory,

because I collect the ephemera,
the talismans, the amulets
of forgotten people's memories.



So skipping over why I would collect it,
why would someone save a photo postcard
of a smiling young man in a bowler hat?

Because he was once someone's sweetheart.

Michen's Liebling!

The postcard was mailed on 29 November 1909

of Tilsit's Deutsche Strasse, and Deutsche Kirche.
was affixed to the front photo.

Toni Vary

{better translations or corrections always welcome} 



The young man with the pencil mustache and wide grin was a violinist with the Original Schrammel Quartet „Fidele Geister or „Jolly Spirits”.  He and his fellow musicians, Mich'l Hüsten on accordion, Sepp'l Pessi on contraguitar, and Franz Helige on 2nd violin appeared on a promotional postcard for their group. They were available as first class artists, playing Schrammelmusik, a Viennese style of lighthearted instrumental music popular in cafés, restaurants, taverns, and wine gardens. The contraguitar, a kind of harp guitar with an added neck and mulitple strings, provided the basso continuo accompaniment to the more melodic voices of the violins.












The postcard was never mailed and is otherwise unmarked
except for a stamped imprint of the:

Orig. Schrammel'n
Toni Vary
„D'Deutschmeister”




It seems that Toni Vary was the leader of the quartet. On another postcard D' fidelen Geister posed in their traveling clothes, instruments in cases, as they get ready to board a train to their next gig..




Neither of these cards has a postmark but Toni seems about the same age 19-21, maybe even a bit younger, as he was in the first photo card of 1909.

Let's pause to have the Philharmonia Schrammeln Wien play some typical Schrammelmusik.  

***


***





A few years later, Toni Vary moved up to a elite level of salon music, changing from a quartet to a trio. Exchanging his casual Schrammelmusik folk costume for a formal white tie and evening jacket. he stands in the center without his violin, holding just a roll of music. The two other men do not have instruments but the one on the right resembles the accordionist Mich'l Hüsten from the Fidele Geister quartet. The gentleman on the left might be a cellist or a pianist.





The postcard has a printed caption on the front:

Salon–Terzett  Toni Vary





The postcard was sent from Cöln, an archaic spelling of Köln, Germany
on 6.2.12 – 6th February 1912.  




By a curious coincidence,
it was sent to Herrn Hermann Hamacher of Willich, Germany
which is just 10 km from Krefeld, the address for Minchen Hamacher.
The handwriting is very different
so I was unable to decipher the message,
but I believe the name Minchen, a diminutive of Wilhelmina,
is written in the center.
Is there a connection?



But before we answer that
let's reconsider my theme.
Why would anyone save an old faded blue postcard,
an image of three men in formal wear,
that's not even a real photo, but a half-tone print?

A century later,
after two catastrophic wars,
after divided nations,
after redrawn borders,
it's now secure
in a binder of similar postcards
on a bookshelf in my studio.
Yet in this long tumult of history,
how did these simple paper postcards manage to survive? 

Memory is a powerful force.





So why on earth
would I want to have
these postcards in my collection?





Because Toni Vary once worked with
a second violin who was a very unique musician,

a woman of color.








She is seated to his left, dressed in a frilly white blouse with embroidered vest and shiny satin pantaloons. She has a violin resting in her lap. Her costume is a folk style not unlike the female musicians of Eastern European musical ensembles from Croatia, Hungary, or Romania. Except that her complexion is distinctly darker. Surely she is not originally from a European race but is of African descent. How/why/when did she get into this little band with Toni Vary? 





Seven musicians pose in a photographer's studio, five men and two women. The men wear fancy military style band uniforms with embroidered cuffs and button braid. One man has a snare drum, another a trombone, another a double bass, and one is without instrument. The second woman is of middlish age, a bit stout, and dressed in a vaguely European folk fashion that matches the violinist. She holds a roll of music, the symbol for the piano player. Toni Vary sits in center front with his violin.

It's a photo postcard of a musical group that resembles countless other small ensembles that played in Europe's salons, restaurants, and cafés in the years before World War One. The striking difference is that one musician is a woman of color. How she got there remains a mystery.

The postcard has no marks, not even a printing logo, so I can't definitively say that it is Toni Vary's orchestra. Unfortunately I've lost the original proof which was a sale listing of the same photo which included a caption with Vary's name. But I am confident it is the same man. It's what made me go look for more corroboration. It's what made me wonder how ephemera like this gets preserved. 








This postcard is a promotional portrait of Toni Vary with violin. A typical artist's publicity shot with his name angled into the lower corner. The half-tone print has faded so I've improved the contrast. The brown color of the cheap rag stock paper is typical of postcards made during the war years.





There is no postmark
but the words
Wien Schrammel Musik
Klavier & Violine

are written in the upper right corner

And curiously the address reads:
Willich 
c/ Krefeld


The handwriting looks very similar
to the writing on the blue postcard.
Another connection?








Once upon a time,
music was a common color of urban life.
It added a dimension of sound
to a stroll in the park,
to an afternoon tea at the café,
to a evening supper after the theater.
Toni Vary's orchestra was part of that musical culture.






Here he stands on a small stage leading a chamber orchestra of seven other musicians. On the left are some string players and on the right is a flutist, a drummer, and another obscured instrument. The violinist seated just left of Vary looks like the uniformed musician standing without instrument in the septet photo. Behind Vary is a large cabinet stacked with music. In front of the stage's wooden rail are restaurant tables and chairs, and the walls are lavishly decorated. This is no cheap beer hall, but a proper high class establishment.

The postcard's back has a penciled note,  

Orchester Toni Vary im Café Grosse, Frankfurt/Main


There is no date but it's likely the photo was taken during the war years. Even though the German public endured many hardships, there was always live music in German restaurants and theaters throughout 1914-1918. Toni Vary must have been very popular there as in October 1919, nearly a year after the war ended, Café Grosse honored him with a special postcard commemorating his 350th concert at the restaurant.

It was a special delight to discover this bit of ephemera showing that my musician had made it beyond the devastating years of war, and the tragic Great Influenza epidemic too. The fortunes of war can be good and bad, so the implication of his 350 concerts means that for much of 1918 if not earlier, Toni Vary was playing at the Café Grosse in Frankfurt. Though it's very likely that he did army service during the war, with his talent Vary may have been assigned to a military band or orchestra. Yet even those units were not entirely safe from incurring casualties.




* * *



We started with Toni Vary's story in 1909, jumped to 1919, and now enter a fog of time. For most of the photos in my collection there is just a single moment of a camera's shutter. Sometimes I find a few more that let me measure time in years, but rarely a decade, and never more. Yet somehow the magic of memory shields ephemera from harm. Eventually a postcard dealer puts it up for sale with enough description that a photo sleuth like me can find it on the internet. 


Now we jump ahead two decades to April 1939. 




It's a modern collage of photos making a promotional postcard. A violinist in white tie and tails stands on one side, four vignettes of women's faces on the other, a pile of musical instruments – drum set, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, accordion. The caption reads:


Toni Vary
mit seinen Künstlerinnen

~

The card was posted from Iserlohn, Germany and addressed to:
Café u.Konditorei

The message is typewritten.

Four months later
on September 1st, 1939
Germany invades Poland
and another Great War begins.




This is a story with only questions
and no real answers.
Each postcard was found separately
over several years from different dealers.
The coincidences seem as remarkable to me
as a paleontologist finding rare fossils
in unexpected geological stratas. 

I don't know if Toni Vary survived
the terrible storm that we know will
soon envelope all of Europe.
And I really know nothing at all
about his life or his family.
His music making is just a guess. 
Did he ever perform in British music halls?
Did he have a favorite café in Wien?
Did he ever learn to play
American jazz music on his violin?
Answers to these questions are locked up in time.

Yet we do know something about Toni Vary.
He was a talented musician
who looked pretty sharp in a white tie and tailcoat.
And he once played music in a Viennese style
with a female African-German violinist.
And once long ago he was Minchen's Liebling!
 
The rest belongs to memory.



* * *



For a coda I offer a video of
the Neue Wiener Concert Schrammeln
playing in a café for an old woman
who knows a thing or two about the power of memory.

          Zaključci stručnog skupa – Gospodarenje otpadom 2015 (Croatia Waste Expo 2015)   
U Zagrebu je 19. ožujka 2015. Poslovni dnevnik organizirao stručni skup „Gospodarenju otpadom 2015“. U pozdravnom govoru je Mislav Šimatović, glavni urednik Poslovnog dnevnika, najavio dva panele sa sesijama: primarna selekcija, centri za gospodarenje otpadom Mala dvorana Lisinski bila je i ovaj put ispunjena brojnim sudionicama. Ponovo je veliki problem bio i nedostatak tiskanih uvodnih prezentacija. Zbog brzine promjene projekcija i naročito vrlo male veličine slike, bez unaprijed tiskanih podloga gotovo je nemoguće bilo pratiti izlaganja. Na te propuste osvrnuli su se i sudionici panel diskusija. ISKORISTITI RESURSE – POVEĆATI ZAPOSLENOST Ministar zaštite okoliša i prirode Mihael Zmajlović održao je izuzetno motivirajuću prezentaciju. Najprije je čestitao svima koji odgovorno i profesionalno rješavaju svakodnevne probleme s otpadom. U Hrvatskoj se konačno više ne govori o zbrinjavanju otpada, već o gospodarenju otpadom. U Hrvatskoj se više od 90 posto količine komunalnog otpada odlaže. To je povezano s vrlo dugotrajnim rizikom za zdravlje ljudi i okoliš. Također odlaganjem otpada gube se vrijedni resursi. „Procjenjuje se, da je zadnjih 10 godina u RH u tijela odlagališta zbijen odnosno dobačen otpad vrijedan čak 5 milijardi kuna!“ Vrlo je važno naglasiti, da će se u RH uvođenjem cjelovitog sustava gospodarenja otpadom povećati zaposlenost i to u sljedećih pet godina za 25 posto. Analizom se procijenilo da će se moći otvoriti čak 4540 novih radnih mjesta (RM). Kod toga će se sve zapošljavati sve više radnika s višom i visokom stručnom spremom. Detaljnomse analizom utvrdilom da se povećanjem na 50 posto učinkovitost odvojenog sakupljanja komunalnog otpada: Papira (27,5 %) sakupiti 150 000 t/a, te otvoriti        1200 RM, Kuhinjskog otpada (26,5 %) sakupiti 199 000 t/a, te otvoriti 830 RM, Plastike (26,3 %) sakupiti 147 000 t/a, te otvoriti          2100 RM, Stakla (3,6 […]

          Grace Atwood   

Throughout life we have all been cautioned against and steered away from dressing in stripes. Whether horizontal, vertical or diagonal, they are constantly regarded as one of the biggest fashion no-nos to decorate a hanger. However, Grace Atwood, founder of The Stripe, a highly stylized lifestyle blog that features goodies like designer DIY tutorials, seasonal must-haves and chic style ideas for every life moment, has taken the forever faux pas and transformed it into a wardrobe necessity. An upbringing in the seafood- and lighthouse-filled Cape Cod peninsula was a huge influence on Grace’s classic coastal style—she lives for blue and white stripes and embroidered dresses. And while the seaside town will always have a place in her heart—and her closet—living in New York City for the past decade has nudged her in an edgier direction. “I've been lucky enough to befriend some amazing designers and have access to some of the best shopping in the world,” said Grace. “I always try to wear something that's a little bit cool and different. My style is very simple and feminine, but I like to keep it interesting with my accessories.”

A self-admitted introvert with a goofy side, Grace is a hard-working content creator who cut her beauty- and fashion-industry teeth at many notable companies, including Procter & Gamble, Coty, Sally Hansen and most recently BaubleBar where she ran social media for several years. A little more than a year ago Grace left to pursue her own projects full time, which is where the next chapter in her career story begins.

Grace fills us in on the last few years, which has been a perfect combination of glamorous fun, including the acquisition of a new pair of Jimmy Choo lace-up rope platforms and a two-week stay in the Greek Islands, and nose-to-the-grindstone hard work with an ultra-successful blog as the outcome.


What inspired you to start blogging and how did you come up with the name “The Stripe?”
I've always been obsessed with fashion and beauty and wanted a place to catalog the things I love. I was working at a job where I felt fairly stifled from a creative standpoint, so I started a blog and started writing. Originally it was called Stripes & Sequins, which are two of my favorite things, but in January 2015 I rebranded to The Stripe. I love stripes—always have, always will—so it felt like a natural choice.
 
Hundreds of blogs launch every day, what do you believe makes “The Stripe" unique?
That's hard to say—there are so many great blogs out there. Several readers have told me that they come to my site every day because it makes them feel like they are talking to a friend. I like to think that my voice is what keeps my site unique—and hopefully keeps my readers coming back for more.

What other blogs give you inspiration?
There are a lot, so I'll just tell you five of my favorites. They are all friends of mine. I love With Love From Kat. Kat lives in New York, has great style and is always going somewhere fun. Liz from Sequins and Stripes is adorable and has the cutest baby, Charlie. Her outfits are always great. Chassity Evans from Look Linger Love tracks down the cutest clothes, and she lives in Charleston so her outfit posts are usually set somewhere dreamy. Speaking of dreamy backdrops, Jess Kirby from Prosecco & Plaid lives by the ocean in Newport, Rhode Island, and her posts always transport me to an ocean state of mind. And last but not least, Annie Atkinson's blog, She's in the Glow. Her beauty stories are always well researched and on point and we share a lot of the same favorite products.

You are always visiting a new place. What is your favorite travel destination?
Visiting the Greek Islands for two weeks while in between jobs was the best vacation I’ve ever taken. I also really love Tulum, Mexico, and Charleston, South Carolina. Tulum is wonderfully relaxing, and I have made a great group of friends in Charleston—plus I’m obsessed with their restaurant scene.


Where will your next adventure take you?
I actually don't know! I spent most of July traveling and just got back from a whirlwind trip through Northwest France with Saint James. Right now I want to stay put for a little bit. That being said, there are a lot of travel destinations that are high on my list, including Cuba, Thailand, Cambodia, Croatia and Chile.

What are your essential travel products?
A small carry-on—I never check, even for a ten-day trip. When I get on the plane, I mist my face with an Odacité Facial Mist, and then apply Goop's Enriching Face Oil. Hydration is key. I always bring my laptop and my Fujifilm X-T10 camera. I keep all my cords, beauty products and essentials organized with pouches from LeSportsac. I'm also never without a Tide Stick (I'm such a klutz and always spill something), extra hair ties (I always lose them and have full-blown anxiety when I can't pull my hair up when I get hot), Burt's Bees Lip Balm, and a snack (right now I love Quest Bars). And, of course, travel-size Dry Texturizing Spray and Bright Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color.

How would you describe your design aesthetic?
Simple and streamlined—a great design should allow your content to really shine. My site is mostly black and white with pops of blush pink throughout. 

How do you feel your style has evolved since you started the blog?
It's gotten a lot more simple and pared down. I was 28 when I started my blog and now I'm almost 35. I'll still experiment with a trend or two—this year I got really into off-the-shoulder everything—but if I do, I keep everything else pretty minimal. I also wear a lot less jewelry and accessories. I look back at some old photos and think, "Wow! I was really wearing all of that!”


Fall and winter are right around the corner. How do you transition your beauty routine from warm to cold weather?
My skin is dry, especially when the cold weather hits. Thus, my skincare routine becomes a lot more focused on hydration in the fall and winter months. I'll switch from a gel cleanser to a creamy one, and I'll start using thicker moisturizers. I don't wear a lot of makeup, but I'll play with my eyes a bit more in the winter, or I’ll do a bold lip—one or the other, never both. For my hair, I get more blowouts as they last longer in winter.

What is your must-have beauty product and how do you use it?
I'm obsessed with SK-II's Facial Treatment Essence—it's the fountain of youth. The brand has such a cool story, and Pitera is an amazing ingredient. I pat it on every morning and night, between cleansing and moisturizing, and like to think it keeps me looking young.

When you’re not at DreamDry, what’s your go-to routine for achieving your perfect beachy waves?
Those beachy waves are almost always courtesy of my favorite DreamDry stylist, Jay Jackson, but when they're not, it's all about the BEACHWAVER. It's my favorite curling iron. You push a button and the wand automatically twirls either left or right, depending on your preference. Getting my waves to curl the proper direction was always something I struggled with until discovering this. I'll shower the night before and let my hair air dry. Then, in the morning, I’ll go over my naturally wavy hair with the BEACHWAVER. I'll add a little bit of Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray, Dry Texturizing Spray and Supershine Moisturizing Cream to the ends, and I'm good to go.


What tips would you give someone starting a blog?
Starting a blog is really hard right now as the market has become very oversaturated. I started nearly seven years ago, which blows my mind. Unless you are famous or incredibly well connected, you have to be doing something special and different from what is already out there. You need to have a unique angle and niche—your blog needs to be different and stand out, otherwise you are going to get lost in a sea of personal-style blogs filled with dresses under $100.

And don't go into it for the money because the money won't come for years. I blogged for more than two years before I made any money.
 
What is the best advice you have ever received?
Keep your head down and work hard. It was something Amy Jain, one of the BaubleBar co-founders, said to Daniella Yacobovsky, the other co-founder, while discussing their approach, and it stuck with me. There are so many startups and blogs that launch every day, and everyone wants a piece of it to get famous. There's also a lot of talk about networking and building a brand, and while all of that is important, at the end of the day, it's about hard work. I just want to build something really great and create a space where my readers walk away feeling a little happier, inspired and more knowledgeable than they did when they got there. I work hard to do that.

Who is your role model?
Gwyneth Paltrow. I love her commitment to health, wellness and clean living, and I also think she's done a great job parlaying her acting career into a business. Goop is really well done.

What is one fashion statement that will never go out of style?
Being yourself. At the end of the day you just have to own whatever it is you are wearing. Confidence and self expression are two things that will always be in, no matter what you are wearing.


 
What is your favorite Oribe product and how do you use it?
I have so many favorites, but I always go back to the Dry Texturizing Spray. It smells incredible. Jay Jackson tells me I smell like an "Orib-aby," which, if you ask me, is pretty much the best way a person can smell. I also really love the Bright Blonde collection, but I'm thinking of going darker for fall.

Trend under $100 that you are most excited to flaunt this fall?
I'm not a huge trends person, but maybe a matte, burgundy lipstick—I usually do bright red or clear gloss)—or an off-the-shoulder midi-dress.

Most luxurious possession you can’t live without?
My cat, Tyrion—yes, he is named after the Game of Thrones character. He's a fluffy Persian with a grumpy face. He's very luxurious...or at least he likes to think he is. I am lucky to have a lot of nice possessions, but I wouldn't say that I couldn't live without any of them.

The trips aren’t cheap, mind you — a trip from the mainland to the island will cost about $400, and the price goes up with more passengers. This might be good for tourists, but the company is not popular among local professionals. Croatian…

          CROATIAN -- BENJAMIN FULFORD: 26:06:2017   


Posebno izvješće: Miš koji je rikao ili kako su ljudi Bougainvillea pobijedili Rothschilde


26. lipnja 2017.



Otok Bougainville u Južnom Pacifiku bio je scena epske desetljetne borbe koja je rezultirala time da su domorodci, naoružani samo sjekirama i lukovima, pobijedili postrojbe naoružane s najnovijim oružjem svjetske klase. Bitka je nametnula domorodcima da se bore da sačuvaju svoje domove predaka protiv Rothschildove multinacionalne kompanije koja pokušava ukrasti najveće svjetske naslage zlata u Panguna rudniku. Kao rezultat njihove pobjede, Nasoi narod središnjeg Bougainvillea postao je prvi autohtoni narod u svijetu koji je prisilio globalnu rudarsku kompaniju da odustane od svog zahtjevnog pothvata.

Ovo nije samo lokalna stvar jer na tom otoku je toliko zlata da bi ono moglo utjecati na budućnost globalnog financijskog sustava. Međunarodni bankari kažu da je tamo samo nekoliko desetaka milijardi dolara vrijednog zlata i bakra, ali ako koristimo frakcijsku rezervnu metodu koju su koristile Federalne Rezerve 2008. godine za određivanje cijene zlata (700 tona zlata bilo je pretvoreno u 750.000 tona vrijedne obveznice sa zlatnom podlogom), onda to vrijedi stotine trilijuna dolara.

Nadalje, lokalni stanovnici kažu da je rudnik pokrivao masovnu operaciju pranja novca tvrdeći da je umjesto zlata bakar, što znači da rudnik i šest drugih poznatih rezervi zlata na otoku, potencijalno vrijede stotine trilijuna dolara čak i bez frakcijske rezervne magije oni bi iznosili zlato noću i sakrivali ga u špiljama, prema izvorima revolucionarne vojske Bougainvillea.


Rudnikom je upravljao Rio Tinto Zinc od 1972. do 1989. godine prije nego što su ga domorodci zatvorili, koji su izašli kao pobjednici nakon desetljeća rata koji je rezultirao smrću od oko 30.000 ljudi ili više od 10% stanovništva, prema izvorima revolucionarne vojske Bougainvillea (BRA). General BRA, Joel opisuje kako su nenaoružani pobunjenici mogli poraziti vrhunski naoružanu vojsku. Kad smo ih prvi put napali imali smo samo sjekire i koplja i znali smo da će mnogi od nas umrijeti, kaže on. Koristili smo gerilsku taktiku, napali smo jednog vojnika i uzeli mu pušku, i s tom puškom mogli smo ubiti 3 ili 4 druga vojnika i uzeti njihove puške i tako dalje; to je način na koji smo se naoružali, kaže on.

Djelatnici Crvenog križa koji rade na otoku također kažu da se do danas događaju ubojstva i mnogi nestanci ljudi“, kao rezultat sukoba na otoku.

Nadalje, vojska otpora pobijedila je u ratu samo da bi se suočila s blokadom, u određenoj mjeri, to se nastavlja do dana današnjeg.

Rio Tinto Zinc tvrdi da su kontrolu nad rudnikom predali Bougainville Copper Limited (BCL) koji je uglavnom u vlasništvu Autonomne vlade Bougainvillea (ABG). Rio Tinto također tvrdi da oni nisu odgovorni za ogromnu štetu na okolišu koju su prouzročili deponiranjem žive i drugim otrovnim muljnim masama u lokalnu rijeku jer su se u to vrijeme pridržavali lokalnih zakona. Međutim, ako pogledate otok Bougainville na Google Earth, još uvijek se jasno može vidjeti, desetljeća nakon zatvaranja rudnika, ožiljke na krajoliku uzrokovane time. Njima se ne bi smjelo dopustiti da eskiviraju tako veliko uništavanje okoliša koje se pokazuje na satelitskim fotografijama.

Dvojno kraljevstvo Meekamui i Papala, lokalna imena za otok, predvodi kralj David Peii II koji želi optužiti vlasnike Rio Tinta za ratne zločine i tužiti ih za uništenje okoliša na Međunarodnom sudu pravde u Haagu.

Ljudi Bougainville Copper Limitida, sa svoje strane, pokušavaju ponovno otvoriti rudnik i obećavaju da će biti dobri prema okolišu ovaj put, ali domaće stanovništvo je tako ogorčeno zbog masovnih ubojstava i uništavanja okoliša da ne želi da BCL ili ABG imaju bilo kakvu ulogu u rudniku. 

Ovako kralj David gleda na situaciju: …

ABG (autonomna vlada Bougainvillea) jednostavno je zastupnik vlade Papua Nova Gvineja. Njezino sjedište je u Waigani, u Papui Nova Gvineja. Onaj tko kontrolira PNG, također kontrolira i ABG. Kao što možda znate da je Australija dala neovisnost PNG-u 1975. godine. Međutim, Australija još uvijek de facto kontrolira PNG. Prema statistikama iz 2011. godine, Australija je od PNG-a zaradila oko K 19.8 milijardi PGK (Papua Nova Guinea Kina) 1 kina=0,31 us dolara) od svojih tvrtki u PNG, ali je vratila samo k450 milijuna PGK u obliku AusAid-a. To je samo oko 3%, a 97% je zadržala Australija. Zajmoprimac je rob vjerovniku. PNG-anci su sretni da prime AusAid sredstva za svoje projekte, ali ne znaju pravu priču.

ABG je osnovana jer se vodstvo Bougainvillea podijelilo odmah nakon pobjede u 10-godišnjem ratu protiv PNG-a i BCL/Rio Tinto-a. V.P Joseph Kabuio odlučio je pregovarati s PNG vladom zbog nedovoljnih sredstava za službe itd., dok je predsjednik Francis Ona smatrao da on nema pravo pregovarati. Iako su sada obojica mrtvi i otišli, njihovi nasljednici su još živi i aktivni. Ja sam nasljednik pokojnog Francisa Ona po sporazumu dvojnog kraljevstva.

ABG je na dnu međunarodnog prehrambenog lanca tog starog sustava kontrole, pa stoga to ne može reći BCL-u, Rio Tinto-u, PNG-u, Australiji ili njihovoj hijerarhiji kontrole jer on je rob svojih zajmodavaca.“

BCL (B’ville Copper Ltd) i dalje je u vlasništvu stranaca (ili ne-Bougainvilleanaca). Dionice za koje tvrde da su dali ABG-u još uvijek kontroliraju stranci, jer sam ABG u svakom slučaju je strani zastupnik na Bougainvilleu. ABG su osnovali njegovi financijeri (PNG i Australija, itd.) da služe njihovim vlastitim interesima u našoj suverenoj otočnoj naciji.

Ono što kralj David opisuje vrijedi za mnoge zemlje u razvoju gdje nemilosrdne multinacionalne kompanije pljačkaju zemlju uz pomoć plaćenika i lokalnih angaContinue reading Four days each in Budapest and Zagreb

          Leaders Who Listen to Reason Rather than Bishops   



"I believe it would be a terrible distortion of democracy if the majorities – the actions of those majorities – denied rights to the minorities."
- Cristina Kirchner, President of Argentina
(A Catholic president in a majority-Catholic country, by the way, which today has marriage equality.)



  



"Mentalities have changed. There is no longer any reason not to open marriage to people of the same sex." 
- Marc Verwilghen, Fmr. JM of Belgium
(Said in 2003, just prior to marriage equality passage.)







 
"It is love that must be the determining factor.  Regardless of sex or sexual orientation, love should be the victor.  Everyone should have the opportunity to enter into marriage.  This is an incredibly important value and an important expression of respect for everyone in our society.  The greatest of all is love."
 - Jens Stoltenberg, PM of Norway
(Statement to parliament in 2008, just prior to passage of marriage equality legislation.) 





 
"Freedom is the ability to let two people in love unite under the law, regardless of their sexual orientation.  Equality is allowing all couples to use the same legal device without discrimination."
- Francois Hollande, President of France





''This is the way it needs to be in a modern society, where churches do not step in the middle of whether someone loves a person of the opposite sex or the same sex.  I'm very proud of Denmark, where regardless of whom you're in love with, you have the right to be married.''
- Helle Thorning-Schmidt, PM of Denmark





''My view is that if two gay people want to get married, then I can't see why it would undermine my marriage to [my wife].  I will vote in favor of same-sex marriage."
- John Key, PM of New Zealand







"Yes it's about equality, but it's also about something else:  commitment.  Conservatives believe in the ties that bind us; that society is stronger when we make vows to each other and support each other.  So I don't support gay marriage despite being a Conservative.  I support gay marriage because I am a Conservative."
- David Cameron, PM of the United Kingdom






"We're living up to our tradition of freedom.  People should be able to show, for themselves and for those around them, who they are and whom they love.  I and many others with me are looking forward to going to weddings this summer where the couples' love will be the focus, not their sex.''
- Fredrik Reinfeldt, PM of Sweden
(Said in April 2009 after passage of marriage equality legislation)





"It's important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.  [...]  My expectation is that, when you look back on these years, you will see a time in which we put a stop to discrimination against gays and lesbians.  You will see a time in which we, as a nation, finally recognized relationships between two men, or two women, as just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman."
- Barack Obama, President of the United States





"Today, Spanish society is responding to a group of people who have been humiliated, whose rights have been ignored, their dignity offended, their identity denied and their liberty oppressed.  Today, Spanish society grants them the respect they deserve, recognizes their rights, restores their dignity, affirms their identity, and restores their liberty."
- José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Fmr. PM of Spain
(2005 statement to parliament, after passage of marriage equality legislation.)




"I rise today in support of Bill C-38, the Civil Marriage Act.  I rise in support of a Canada in which liberties are safeguarded, rights are protected, and the people of this land are treated as equals under the law.  We embrace freedom and equality in theory, Mr. Speaker; we must also embrace them in fact. [...]  If we do not step forward, then we step back.  If we do not embrace a right, then we deny it.  Mr. Speaker, together as a nation, together as Canadians, Let us step forward."
- Paul Martin, Fmr. PM of Canada (2005 speech to parliament.)




 
"I think we must go forward, and be inspired by the most advanced countries in the world. Giving stronger civil legal rights to gay couples will not deprive anyone of their rights."
- Zoran Milanovic, PM of Croatia




Hopefully one day we can add an Asian president or PM to this list...

U.S. Conducts Aerial Patrols Of U.S.-Mexico Border

Rae Ellen Bichell | NPR

Before she confronts death straight on, Melissa Connor always puts on a pair of rubber boots. The shelf she takes the shoes from includes a bottle of hand sanitizer, a sign warning people to check their shoes for scorpions and a bundle of wooden stakes, each of which will eventually be marked with the abbreviation "Mr." or "Ms." followed by a number.

Then Connor opens the back door of her lab, located just outside Grand Junction, Colo., and steps onto a gravel path. It's squint-your-eyes bright out here, and everything is dry — the air, the crumbly dirt, the scrubby plants. The only movement comes from the wind, an occasional car on the nearby highway and the prairie dogs that come out of their dens to chatter at intruders.

"I think we have the most scenic of the decomposition facilities, myself," says Connor, a forensic scientist at Colorado Mesa University, as she approaches a fenced plot of land on rolling hills of sagebrush, with snow-topped mountains in the distance. A whiff of something that smells like a cross between stagnant pond and roadkill wafts by.

This site is officially called the Forensic Investigation Research Station, but people sometimes refer to the small plot Connor is walking toward as a "body farm."

She arrives at a 10-foot-tall fence — topped with razor wire, with a second gate in front of that. The double barrier keeps curious people from peering through the cracks in the big fence.

"Yeah. There are oh-so-many reasons for the big fence," says Connor. It's sunk 2 feet into the ground and, among other things, keeps coyotes from walking off with human body parts. "Wouldn't be good P.R.," Connor explains.

(Editor's note: Those readers who are squeamish about descriptions of decaying bodies may want to skip the next nine paragraphs.)

The small plot, about an acre in size, contains rows of human remains. There are 36 bodies in all — donated either by the people themselves, in instructions before death, or by their families after the fact. The bodies are naked, and lying face-up as if cloud-gazing.

There are seven "body farm" facilities like these across the U.S. This is the only decomposition site west of the Mississippi, and the only one in a dry climate.

"This is Mr. 1612," says Connor as she stands over a body teeming with maggots and flies. "He came in late in 2016. The insects have found the incisions from the autopsy and laid their eggs there, and they're doing their thing."

"Aggressive wriggling," adds Christiane "Chrissie" Baigent, a research assistant at the station, who checks on the bodies daily. She's the one who will eventually collect each set of remains once they've finished decomposing, bring them to a gentle boil in the lab to remove any remaining tissue, and mark each bone with a number before adding the skeleton to a slowly growing teaching collection.

"There's no one, absolutely no one, who looks good in decomp," says Connor, who trained as an archaeologist before excavating mass graves in Croatia, Rwanda, Cyprus and Iraq — primarily with a group called Physicians for Human Rights.

Connor and Baigent are so accustomed to the sight and smell of rotting human bodies that their stomachs will growl at lunchtime, even if at that very moment they're crouched over a bloated corpse.

Usually, bodies go from greenish to grayish to brown and black as generations of insects eat everything except the skeleton. But that's not what will happen to Mr. 1612. Out here, the usual rules of decay don't apply.

Instead of turning gray, for example, his body might turn as bright orange as a traffic cone. His skin will dry out and harden so much that bugs won't be able to chew through it.

Out here in the desert, Mr. 1612 will likely become a mummy. When he does, it'll look like he's decaying in slow motion.

Increasingly important work

About 700 miles south, in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, the lessons from the Colorado body farm are all too relevant.

"There are literally thousands of migrants dying every year," says Bruce Anderson, a forensic anthropologist with the Office of the Medical Examiner in Pima County, Ariz. "We still have bones and bodies coming in, if not on a daily basis, on a weekly basis."

Over the last 20 years, he says his office has worked on identifying the remains of almost 3,000 people known or thought to have crossed the border without documentation. Some of them were alive 10 minutes before border patrol found them, he says. Others had been dead for decades. Many of these people likely died trying to cross the border into the U.S.

"It doesn't matter to me if they're American or not," says Anderson. "They're dead, and they have people looking for them and people that miss them and people that love them. So, that's why we do what we do."

In recent years, more bodies have been showing up. That's not because more people are crossing the border in that area; the number of people crossing the border from Mexico has actually gone down, according to the U.S. Border Patrol. Instead, Anderson says, it's because of the ramp up in border patrol agents working in the region. More boots on the ground means more eyes looking for migrants, whether alive or dead.

An essential part of Anderson's work for the county medical examiner is figuring out when someone died, because often the only clue that relatives can offer is when their loved one disappeared.

"If a skeleton is found in the Sonoran Desert and we think the person died between one and two years ago — versus five and 20 years ago — that can save a lot of time in going through missing persons reports from those two time periods," says Anderson.

It's particularly important for the cases Anderson works on, because, while there's a single database for missing American citizens, there's a whole patchwork of missing-person lists for foreign nationals — lists maintained by various consulates and independent organizations. Some of the records aren't even digitized.

"You literally have to have a person sit down with paper records or an Excel spreadsheet and look through descriptions of tattoos or crooked teeth or pink tennis shoes or yellow T-shirts," Anderson says.

Narrowing down when a person died can mean the difference between identifying a body and having to bury it anonymously.

Mr. 1401

Back at the Colorado body farm, Connor stands over one body in particular.

"Mr. 1401. He's the individual we deposited here in January 2014," says Connor. There are no maggots or flies on this body. What's left of his tissue is a brittle shell. If a mouse walked over it, the remains would fall apart.

"If you went and looked at a rock and you saw the black lichen on a rock, that's sort of what the body looks like," says Eriek Hansen, a biologist with Colorado Mesa University who also does research at the body farm.

"He has what I think actually is a black mold on some of him," says Connor. And, she says, "There are portions of the tissue that are much more parchment- or vellum-colored."

Existing methods for determining when someone died would not work on this body. Because he turned into a mummy, Mr. 1401 looks as if his body has been out in the desert for a few months, even though it's been more than three years since he died.

Baigent, Connor and Hansen are working on new ways to measure changes in moisture, color, bloating and texture of tissue that, with the help of weather data, would let them accurately calculate how many days a body like this has been outside.

"We want to narrow that estimate down as much as we can, to help law enforcement figure out who those people might be," says Connor, who says local law enforcement call her office between one and four times a year for help identifying a body.

Hansen is using electricity to measure how much moisture a body has lost over time. Baigent and Connor have come up with a detailed scoring system to describe exactly how a body's skin quality changes as time goes on, using words like "parchment," "vellum" and "burnt umber." There's even something they call "pebbled mosaic," which happens when skin sloughs off, leaving tissue islands, which Baigent says is a hint that a body has been outside longer than initial estimates would suggest.

It takes a trained eye — and a strong gut — to notice these subtle changes.

"When you're looking at the whole body, it doesn't look like significant changes are occurring," says Baigent, but they are. You just have to look closely.

If the research team can pin down those details, it could help their colleagues to the south bring closure to the families of those who died. The remains of countless people still lie unidentified.

          Croat minority in Serbia marks one of its holidays, points to progress as well as problems   

The Croat minority in Serbia celebrated one of its four national holidays at a ceremony held in Subotica on Friday, with its representatives pointing to the progress made with regard to the community's rights as well as to problems it was faced with due to worsened relations between Serbia and Croatia.


          Vojvodina Croat official says Serbia should publish 186 textbooks in Croatian language   

The leader of the Democratic Alliance of the Vojvodina Croats (DSHV), Tomislav Zigmanov, said on Wednesday that Serbian authorities would have to publish 186 textbooks for all levels of education in the Croatian language, and that this was the best way to open the policy area 26 in the country's EU accession talks, which concerns education and culture, and for Croatia to unblock the opening of that policy area.


          DSHV's activities difficult due to lack of cooperation between Serbia, Croatia   

He said he wanted to believe that this situation was partly the result of the election campaign in Serbia, but added that it was possible that Vojislav Seselj's acquittal was also hampering the two countries' relations.

          Sketching with pen and watercolour   
    One of the most effective ways of sketching is by using pen and wash. I carry around hardback bound sketchbooks of cartridge paper amongst the many odd items in my rucsack, and these accept pen drawings well. While the dip-pen and bottle of ink are the ideal way, it is less practicable to carry around bottle of ink, so I normally resort to a technical pen, although this has a uniform line.

    This sketch was done in evening light in the Maritime Alps, on cartridge paper. I began with the ink drawing using a .02 nib. Where you have considerable depth in a scene, and especially with distant mountains, or wish to draw clouds, it is imperative not to be too heavy-handed with the pen on these distant elements. I prefer more intermittent line work rather than continuous lines as seen on the building, as this will suggest distance. In places I have totally omitted the line work and relied solely on the watercolour wash outline to describe the shape of far ridges and trees. The ink line is also an excellent way of rescuing a painting or watercolour sketch that is too weak in tones.

    My recent trip to the Alps was aimed at capturing snow scenes, but there was no snow until the final day when I had to leave. Somehow the snow appears to have been deliberately eluding me this winter!

    There are still one or two spaces left on my Croatian painting holiday in September. This is an easy, relaxed painting holiday in congenial surrounding amidst lovely scenery, and will not involve any wild mountain work!

          Looking for Old Photographs of Immigrants to Michigan

The Austro-Hungarian Empire included parts of what is now Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Croatia, Poland, Romania, Italy, Ukraine, Moldova, Serbia, and Montenegro.

I’m trying to track down images, preferably taken before 1918, of immigrants and their churches/homes/businesses/etc. If you have any old photographs that you would be willing to share (or contacts with historical societies that might have photographs), please contact me here or at annipete@nmu.edu.

ARTIST INSPIRATION:

This is a retro style horizontal skyline of Durham, North Carolina. I made this print because I received so many requests. It seems like a neat little town, and I couldn't resist making the Lucky Strike towers. The rich blue sky has a gradient of purple, and I used blues, green, reds, and neutrals throughout. A Durham flag was added for interest and I selected a clean modern font face that's easy to read.

          Violence against children with disabilities: legislation, policies and programmes in the EU - Summary   
Children with disabilities face significant barriers to enjoying their fundamental rights. They are often excluded from society, sometimes living in facilities far from their families. They are also denied access to basic services, such as health care and education, and endure stigma and discrimination, as well as sexual, physical and psychological violence. This summary report outlines relevant international and European standards and reviews national legislation and policies addressing violence against children with disabilities. The summary also explores the extent and different causes, settings and forms of such violence, and presents measures and initiatives to prevent it.
Downloads: 

International, European and national law all recognise the right to protection from all forms of violence. But even though protective measures are available, girls and boys with disabilities are more likely than their peers to experience violence, sexual abuse or bullying in schools, at home or in institutions across the European Union; they also often face violence linked to their disability.

FRA scrutinised the important but underreported issue of violence against children with disabilities, carrying out desk research and conducting interviews with knowledgeable stakeholders. This report presents the results of that research.

          The Easy Work of Meeting People while Traveling in Turkey and Greece   
My Girlfriend Jen McKnight and I saw some amazing sites during our trip to Turkey and Greece. It was the trip of a lifetime based merely on the many ancient and modern wonders we saw and photographed. What made this trip especially satisfying, though, were the people we met, and there were many. Turkey and Greece offer an endless stream of incredibly friendly people. Combine that with the fact that Jen is a people-magnet; combine that with my natural curiosity, and you end up with animated conversations in some of the most unexpected places. It happened so often that after we'd been in Turkey for a day, I decided that whenever we ended up visiting with a person for more than a few minutes, I would ask the person/people to take a selfie with us and trade contact information. I'm posting some of these photos here. On the flight to Goreme, a Turkish woman who teaches language, but who lives in Amsterdam, volunteered to give Jen and me a crash course in Turkish. What a gift! We actually did incorporate a couple dozen Turkish words into our vocabulary. Thank you, Mustafa Kabalci, who was our host in Cappadocia at Sultan Suites Cave Hotels! He was as good a host as I could have imagined, offering us unending advice and encouragement. We'll never forget the wise eyes of Ismir, the dog either. And there was Haydar Elçi from the Goreme restaurant, who presented us with a free desert of baklava on our final night in Goreme. Who else? There was Karolina Barac, the model from Croatia with whom we shared an inspiring balloon ride. And then there were two Turkish women from Istanbul, who we met at Derinkuyu, Turkey, Tilbe Cana İnan and Nesrin Göksungur who approached Jen and me 100 feet underground, asking if they could walk with us to distract them from the claustrophobia. That led to a later (above-ground) wonderful dinner conversation in Urgup on a breathtaking overlook. While in Turkey, we also met Fatih and Jenna, the two young law students from Indonesia, who were taking a break from their schooling at the University of Leeds in London at sat next to us in the small outdoor restaurant in Goreme. There are many merchants among the people we got to know, especially since it was a holiday season, and all of them offered us insights and friendship. That list includes Fatih, Mohammed and Suddik. Jen bought a cute little birdsong whistle from a man in Istanbul for a total of 1 Turkish Lira (30 cents). He then chased us down to make sure that Jen knew how to fill the whistle with water and showed her several techniques for making bird sounds.

Seperti alat muzik organ pada umumnya, Sea Organ juga boleh menghasilkan muzik yang indah. Menariknya, muzik tersebut terbentuk daripada gabungan antara seni bina bangunan dan ombak laut Adriatik.

Sekatan pantai tersebut direka oleh seorang arkitek yang pernah meraih anugerah, Nikola Basic. Nikola terinspirasi sistem hydraulis pada masa Yunani kuno.

Orang-orang pada masa itu menggunakan sistem paip dan air untuk menghasilkan suara. Air akan menekan udara di dalam paip dan membuat pelbagai nada hingga menjadi muzik yang menarik.






Ketika ini Sea Organ menjadi salah satu daya tarikan bagi pelancong yang datang ke Croatia. Ingin tahu bagaimana bunyi dari Sea Organ? Jom layan video berikut ini.

          How the Right IT Infrastructure Can Deliver an Extraordinary Customer Experience   

It's no secret that digital business requires tools, solutions, and technologies that allow data and information to flow through the enterprise efficiently. Yet, when it comes to building out the right infrastructure, the devil is in the details. Not all IT systems are created with customer experience in mind.

A fast, agile, and flexible IT framework is critical for creating a culture of customer service excellence. What does that mean? It's the ability to meet customer needs and expectations quickly. That requires extremely responsive back-end systems and highly available services—and it touches applications, databases, storage, and the cloud. Accenture dived deep into the motives of the modern digital customer and discovered that

"profitable growth in today’s always-on world is dependent on providing experiences that keep customers engaged."

With 64% of consumers saying they’ve switched at least one service provider due to a poor customer experience and Oracle estimating that 20% of annual revenue is loss because of a less than positive customer experience, businesses have much at stake.

3 Considerations for Supporting Exceptional Customer Experience

Digital technologies have changed fundamental business models and ushered in new and more demanding IT requirements to support a first-rate customer experience. These requirements reach across organizational boundaries. The common denominator? The customer experience framework and the IT systems that support it must address:

  1. The entire customer lifecycle. This ranges from customer-facing marketing and sales to customer support and reengagement. There are a multitude of applications, both on the market and homegrown, to address the digital customer experience, so you better make sure you have the appropriate IT infrastructure to support the uptime and stability of those services so your people can deliver on time, all the time.

  2. Employee productivity. With multiple channels and numerous customer touchpoints, employees must achieve a high level of efficiency in order to deliver the best possible customer experience. This means instant 24/7 access to data, information, and customers through systems that tap the cloud and mobility. A strong IT infrastructure can enable this, while an unreliable one can cause latency issues or, worse, unexpected downtime and outages.

  3. The supply chain and business partners. As customer and business relationships become more complex—and as partnerships reach across third-party lines—there's a need for efficiency within the customer value chain. Streamlining your IT infrastructure on a single technology stack like Oracle engineered systems can not only reduce the complexity of your data centers, but the supply chain to manage it as well. A streamlined IT infrastructure can also prepare you for a move to the cloud, an emerging trend among supply chain leaders.

Aligning IT and Customer Experience Goals

How can your enterprise properly address these three critical considerations and emerge as a leader rather than a laggard in your industry? IT can help support a successful digital transformation of the customer experience in these key areas:

  • A network infrastructure that enables fast and flexible “anytime, anywhere” transactions and interactions.
  • Extensive use of cloud platforms and services to support growth, including SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS.
  • The Internet of Things (IoT), which connects people, machines, and data to deliver broader and deeper insights, for reaching customers and understanding—even predicting and responding to—their needs.
  • Databases that operate at the speed of digital, often by tapping the more advanced frameworks such as Hadoop and using clouds to move data in near real time.
  • Robust security and privacy protections built into systems in a more comprehensive way.
Engineered to Deliver an Exceptional Customer Experience

With integrated systems, businesses can take advantage of more efficient data processing for real-time data analytics applications and transaction processing, which has a ripple effect across your organization—from better business decision-making to a   smoother and more positive customer experience. Today, there's a need to rethink and rewire traditional database and data warehouse frameworks to deliver real-time data—but also broader datasets that enable a more complete view of business information.

Oracle Engineered Systems is co-engineered to deliver exceptional performance, availability, and security for the systems your business and customers rely on. Purpose-built and designed for Oracle Database and all applications that run on it, the Engineered Systems unified solution maximizes speed to deliver real-time insights and uncompromising data protection at chip level so you can better serve your customers. Because customer produce so much useful, yet unstructured, data, it's imperative that you have the proper infrastructure to ingest and subsequently analyze it all. Customers can plug-and-play with Oracle Big Data Appliance and avoid costly upstart costs of implementing a DIY solution to capture and analyze all the data your customers create. mStart, a Croatian IT services firm, deployed Oracle Big Data Appliance to provide near real-time, detailed insight—including for example the highest and lowest selling items—into the activities of more than 2,000 stores serving 1.2 million customers daily in five countries, enabling retail outlets to intelligently make same-day amendments to prices and promotions to boost revenue and optimize inventory management.

"Thanks to the profound insights delivered in real time by Oracle Big Data Appliance, we have increased our ability to respond to the needs of more than 1 million loyalty card holders who regularly use our retail network. We also expect to reduce our transportation costs."

          Rental boom for prime SW19 locations during Wimbledon fortnight   

A New Zealand priest, a Croatian coach and a couple who just wanted to use the shower - these were just a few of the characters who stayed with Alex Ward and Harriet Wolfe when they rented out a room in their Wimbledon home for last year's Championships. The couple are one of many who use their prime SW19 location to earn money during the two-week tennis tournament via Airbnb, the platform for people to rent out lodgings such as homes, holiday apartments or hostel rooms.


          Iceland, an open-air Hollywood studio   
CRYSTAL clear ice caves, glacial lakes, spewing volcanoes and crashing waterfalls framed by dark lava columns: Iceland's breathtaking landscapes have become a magnet for Hollywood moviemakers looking to conjure up otherworldly scenery.

In southern Iceland, the massive Almannagja gorge stretches as far as the eye can see. Its spectacular setting was chosen as the location for an epic battle scene in "Game of Thrones" between the characters Brienne of Tarth and the Hound.

"The diversity is so big that you can create almost any kind of landscape," says Leifur Dagfinnsson, president of the Icelandic production company Truenorth, which holds 90% of the market.

"You can both shoot Iceland for Iceland or you can have Iceland double for other places like the Himalayas, the Mongolian tundra, Siberia or Greenland," he tells AFP.

Located in the North Atlantic, Iceland's moon-like landscape has served as a filmset for many science fiction films portraying other planets, Dagfinnsson, says.

From TV series such as Black Mirror, to blockbusters including Interstellar, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Star Wars, James Bond movies and Fast and Furious 8, the list of films shot in Iceland in recent years is long.

'Surreal landscapes'

The country's uninhabited landscapes offer moviemakers the opportunity to film everything from dramatic action-filled scenes to apocalyptic scenery and futuristic worlds.

Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky chose Iceland as a film location for his biblical blockbuster movie "Noah" in 2014, starring Russell Crowe.

"The landscapes are surreal -- practically of another world," Aronofsky's producing partner Scott Franklin told the Los Angeles Times at the time.

The sky can look as though it's on fire in the middle of winter, or teeming with roaring clouds trailed by black smoke.

These aren't caused by a volcanic eruption or a storm, but pyrotechnic explosions and swarms of helicopters from the movie sets.

And at the foot of a waterfall or on a beach of silvery pebbles, one might even encounter a strange sword-carrying soldier on horseback returning from battle...

Post-financial crisis

Iceland's economic collapse in 2008 has made it an inexpensive country in which to work and it boasts strong infrastructure with easy access to shooting locations, according to Kristinn Thordarson, president of the Association of Icelandic Film Producers (SIK).

The economy is once again growing thanks to a booming tourism industry and a thriving fishing sector, but a dark cloud looms over its rising currency, the krona, which the heavily export-reliant country has repeatedly tried to tame.

As an incentive to film in Iceland, a tax rebate was increased this year from 20 to 25% of the overall budget of producing a movie in the country, and Thordarson said he hopes it will be boosted to 30% within four years, just behind Ireland's 32%.

In the land of ice and fire, 2016 was a peak year for television and movie productions, with turnover for local companies of 20 billion kronur (RM843 million).

But Thordarson wants to take it even further.

"If we build a studio here and if the filmmakers use the studio... (then) they would do more in Iceland than just film locations," he said.

Filming is strictly regulated, especially in the country's more than 100 protected areas, from nature reserves to national parks, where a licence from the Icelandic Environment Agency is required.

Shooting permits have been rising sharply since 2013 and "the conditions for obtaining (them) remain very strict," says Adalbjorg Guttormsdottir, who leads a team that manages licence applications.

Disrupting the country's flora and fauna is strictly forbidden, and even turning over a stone without putting it back in place is out of the question.

Cinema tourism

The Almannagja fault is now a popular destination for tourists and "Game of Thrones" fans.

Eddy Marks made a one-day return trip to follow a tour of the HBO hit series, after visiting other sets in Croatia's Dubrovnik and Malta.

"It's nice to see ... something on the TV and then you come to see it in real life. It's a different experience," says the Californian after taking a selfie in front of the Langjokull glacier framed by snow.

Here, the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates divide, creating a deep canyon.

And it is at this spot, in the heart of the Thingvellir national park, now listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site, that the world's oldest parliament was created, in 930.

Marks is among 20 other tourists who came to the national park to see a territory in "Game of Thrones" called Beyond the Wall.

"The weather was different in some of the TV scenes," Glenn McGregor, a Canadian retiree, says with a chuckle, as heavy rain falls.

Iceland's unpredictable weather is known for tormenting film crews.

"Many days were lost because of this," recalls Theodore Hansson, 35, a long-haired, bearded "Game of Thrones" tour guide.

A medieval history student at the University of Reykjavik, he also appeared as an extra in season two, three and four of "Game of Thrones" as well as the most recent seventh season.

But the bad weather also has its advantages.

"(It) creates an even more realistic and more beautiful scenario," says Leifur Dagfinnsson.

"Sometimes it is a plus." — AFP Relaxnews

          Marketability and Tennis   
by Savannah

An interesting interview with Marin Čilić's agent Vincent Stavaux by @franckramella of L'Équipe appeared over the weekend. In it he addressed the issue of his client's lack of popularity in what passes for tennis media and why companies like Nike haven't pursued him. Thanks to @markalannixon for the translation.

Tell us why we should like Marin Čilić?

"People need to find out who he really is. He's atypical on the tour. His natural kindness, not false, his amenability, his availability are to me exceptional. Everyone says: "Yes, but he lacks charisma and that sort of thing", but as soon as they meet him, they change their minds about him. We had a meeting here (in Marseille) with seniors, they were astonished by his kindness. He spoke to them in French, they were touched. And every tournament director will tell you: "Marin Čilić is special because everything he does he does with a smile." He's available when that's not always the case. He plays the game and never shows up just for the appearance money. In Rotterdam, he asked me Saturday morning, because he lacked a bit of confidence: "You believe in going to Marseille? I don't want to go there if I won't do well." I swear he said that!"

But he's not mentioned much - not by the media either -, while attention is paid more easily to the more extroverted ones ...

"To me, that's an excellent societal question. Everyone screams about and spits on the paparazzi and the sensationalist tabloids, but they have readers. It's a bit the same here. I have trouble understanding that, in relation to Marin, people prefer watching Kyrgios who throws his racquet and spits, though I have nothing against him. But hearing that sort of thing is problematic. Because what? For tennis to be fun you have to insult the umpires? Shout "fuck" everywhere? Watching a Roger at the top of his art entertaining the crowd, that's tennis to me. Not smashing racquets or whatever .. That's hypocritical."

Do you think we push too much for excess while constantly complaining that the sport is too policed?


"Stop! If people don't want to watch that sort of tennis, they can watch another sport. I'm against all rules that that make the game colourless under the pretext of making it more pleasant for the majority of people."

How do you fight for Čilić's existence in that world?


"What's a shame is that sponsor brands look strongly for that. Either you're right at the top or you're outrageous. But if you're in the category of player like Tomas Berdych, David Ferrer or Marin Čilić, you're nothing.Every time. They hide behind excuses like: "He's from Croatia, it's not a market." It's a very small argument."

Go ahead. We're giving you the chance to sell us Čilić ...

"His generosity. I think Marin Čilić is Pat Rafter's successor in the sense that he does a lot of things for a lot of people. He helps without talking about it. I was astonished when I found out years after that Rafter had built a hospital from the ground up with his own money. Marin gets involved, gives quite a lot to foundations. If people only knew what a big heart he has ..."

The thing is many of the players, male and female, coming up are in the category of Tomáš Berdych, David Ferrer and Marin Čilić. The problem is tennis has never been good at marketing players like them and worse at marketing players from Eastern Europe.

Players from Eastern Europe who play for Western European countries like Belinda Bencic and before her Martina Hingisová Molitor who played as Martina Hingis do get/got the full star treatment. Angelique Kerber is Polish but plays for Germany. And there's Simona Halep of Romania. None of them, not one, can headline an event. None of them have that "thing" that draws people to them.

It's the same on the men's side. The top male player, despite all of the effort his people put into promoting him, is not as charismatic as the two men who despite their current woes are still the biggest stars in the sport. And he doesn't wear Nike either. Let's look past him at the up and comers. Alexander Zverev is of Russian descent but both he and his brother who plays as Mischa Zverev play for Germany. Borna Ćorić of Croatia has the good looks that could get him places à la Marat Safin but none of them have the star power to draw casual fans to the sport. Čilić is a very handsome man but as his agent opines he comes from an area of the world that is not considered "a market". The same thing is said of Tomáš Berdych.

Since Čilić brought up David Ferrer I'll mention him briefly. People rant and rave about Feliciano López but in person Ferrer is the much better looking man. Still, neither one of them wear Nike or Adidas, the top brands in sports.

And yes there is Maria Sharapova who, to put it mildly does get a lot of publicity. The WTA has a type and she is still it. Did she get the push because she is based in the States while players like Maria Kirilenko, Anastasia Myskina and Elena Dementieva were unknown outside the world of tennis fanatics?

So what is going on? Why are players who have been consistently top ten so hard to market? Why is there such a push for players like Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic but not for men and women, with few exceptions, out of Eastern Europe? Is it language? Is it that many of the Eastern European countries are poor? When the duopoly is gone who will replace them in terms of marketing? I have no answer and from the interview posted above agents are hitting a brick wall with the big ad agencies and clothing purveyors. If a marketing strategy can't be created now what is going to happen in the next two or three years? Who will be the standard bearers for a sport that will be dominated by players from countries that are not "markets"?

If tennis doesn't want to fade in the minds of sports fans a solution to the marketing problem will have to be found.

For the top ten I've added how many places they've moved up or down from last year.

I've written a lot about the WTA this past season, most of it critical. I don't want to go over ground I've already covered so I'll focus on how the women's tour ended. The word that came to mind right away was "messy".

Why "messy"? The WTA went all in leading up to the US Open and Serena Williams chance to make history. I thought the hype was a bit over the top and would only add to what had to be butterflies as big as bats in Serena's stomach and encroaching brain freeze in her mind. If anyone watched "The Soprano's" the hype reminded me of when Tony brpught a sable coat home for Carmela thinking that it would cover a multitude of his sins.

The oversell brings up what for me has been a consistent marketing issue for the WTA. Under Stacey Allaster's long reign the sport of women's tennis was pushed aside in favor of promoting a "look". She's gone now and I'm thinking that the new guy should be given a chance to start making his own mark. It seems as if he's started with the problematic $125k events. Previously taking place almost exclusively in Asia new ones are scheduled in Buenos Aires, Argentina, San Antonio, Texas, West Hempstead, New York and Bol, Croatia. Keep in mind these tournaments are not part of the main tour, and that top ten players need not apply (see page 15 of the WTA Handbook http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-Archive/Archive/AboutTheTour/rules2015.pdf )so any rumors you hear about a top tenner playing one of these are just folks trying to push ticket sales.

The fact that no new 125k's were announced for Asia gives hope to many fans that the obsessive focus on China may be lessening. I know the company line has been that China is the up and coming market but broadcast deals aren't cheap and I'm guessing only the guaranteed government money is keeping these events going. It's a cliché that Chinese tournament equals mostly empty stadium.

But I digress. After Serena's loss in New York instead of a drone telling the tennis press that Serena was taking an already planned sabbatical she was left hanging once again as fans, and some members of the press, criticized her for taking time off and planning to play some exhibition events later in the year. Only fans who pay close attention knew that the total silence from the WTA meant that this break was planned and was going to happen whether or not she made history.

Then there is the ill advised lawsuit filed by Eugenie Bouchard against the USTA/WTA. No matter how you feel about it the fact remains that the Plaintiffs, instead of trying to quietly settle out of court have hit back hard at Ms Bouchard. In an interview her lawyer described her as being "upset" because the USTA is "being really aggressive" with her. I don't even know how to respond to that. I have no reason to think her lawyer is misrepresenting how she feels but what did she expect? He's talking about her being paid "millions and millions" isn't he? If she gets a jury (in New York for a civil case there are usually six jurors with two alternates) where no one has a clue about tennis and how she was playing coming into the US Open she could end up getting exactly what she, through her lawyers, is asking for. How would having to bestow a large settlement on Ms Bouchard affect the corporation doing business as the USTA? Would it affect it's construction at the BJK NTC in Queens New York? What about the other work it does? Did she expect a champagne reception to be thrown in her honor?

The full USTA filing can be found
HERE . The most interesting thing to me is the following:
SEVENTH AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE

Without relieving the Plaintiff of its burden of proof of establishing his injuries or damages, if any, any damages sustained by the Plaintiff were proximately caused or contributed to by the intervening or superseding intentional conduct or negligence of third-parties that the Plaintiff has not named in this action.

So she wasn't alone in the room. There is some pretty wild speculation out there about who the unnamed third party is but wouldn't it have made sense for Ms Bouchard to have mentioned that she and Mr or Ms X entered the room together? Why didn't she name the third party/parties to avoid speculation? Messy business this.

So, where does the WTA go from here?

There was a surprise winner at the YEC. Will she become a Slam contender? Will Serena pick up where she left off when it comes to Slams? Will Venus be able to continue to move up in the rankings? Will Petra Kvitova become a more consistent player in 2016? Will Garbiñe Muguruza be able to push Serena for the top ranking? What about Simona Halep? Will she figure out a way to handle pressure and hold it together enough to really challenge for Slams titles? What about Karolina Pliskova?

We know Flavia Pennetta is retired and will drop out of the top ten. Lucie Safarova has been ill and didn't play at all during the Fed Cup tie just recently completed. Fans don't like to talk about it but Venus health will continue to be an issue. At the present time with Pennetta out the top ten is really Kerber at #9 and Pliskova at #10. We can talk about whether Pliskova - or Muguruza for that matter - deserve their rankings based on the quality of their play over the year. Personally I don't think Pliskova is a top ten player. Her game is still a bit too juvenile for my tastes. Muguruza had a great beginning to and end of 2015. Her collaboration with Sam Sumyk seems to be working well and I'm sure she's aiming for bigger and better in 2016. Sumyk's job appears to be easier than Cahill's right now but we'll only know by the end of the spring hard court season in the US if Cahill has found a way to help his charge deal with the pressure of late tournament play.

Is the style of tennis going to change? Yes. Will it be at a lower level than we've become accustomed to? Yes. Will top players retire after Rio or after the US Open? Who knows?

And not forgetting the mess that led up to the YEC will the new guy try and imitate the ATP and arrange a week off leading into it? That gives time to build up anticipation among fans and the media. This year the YEC didn't stand out and I feel play was affected by people having to fly long distances to and from Asia.

How would I rate the year? It may surprise some but I'd give it a B based on excellence of Serena, the promise of Garbiñe, Belinda Bencic and maybe, just maybe, Madison Keys? I'll give my report card on the young players I chose to focus on this year next time.

I hope next year I can give a higher grade.

          10 of the best small islands in Croatia   

These Adriatic islets, many sparsely populated and little visited, are perfect for boat rides, great walking trails, lovely beaches and the odd bit of culture

An hour’s ferry ride from Dubrovnik, Lopud is a world away from the city’s bustle. Panoramic views take in mountains and deep-blue waters, from the surrounding Elaphiti archipelago to the Croatian mainland beyond. Just 220 year-round residents share this car-free island, which measures less than 5 sq km. A sweep of seafront promenade – with waterside restaurants, petite boutiques and ice-cream shops – traces Lopud’s northern bay. A 15-minute hike south over the hills sits Šunj Bay, a splendid and rare arc of silky sand that shelves gradually into the surf. The island truly comes into its own in the early evening, once the last daytrippers have set sail for the mainland.

          Location, Local, Location   
By Tom Inglesby


The real estate sales mantra, “Location, Location, Location!” can fit nicely with the independent filmmaker’s mantra, “Keep It Cheap.” The majors can send scouts to find just the right location for a film or TV show based on the script writer’s concepts. It often seems that the big budget productions send crews and actors around the world looking for the perfect spot to resemble another spot that didn’t quite look like what it was supposed to look like, even though it was the actual spot being portrayed. Case in point: shooting the latest Pirates of the Caribbean… in Australia. Or Portland, Ore., sited for Boston in the TV show Leverage.

Okay, we recognize that several factors come into play when a studio looks for a site for a project that, according to the writer—or the author of the book that the project is based upon—is a particular city or area. For obvious reasons, Game of Thrones and The Hobbit are not going to be shot in Westeros and Middle Earth, respectively. The former travels to Northern Ireland, Spain, Morocco, Iceland, and Croatia while the multiple parts of the Lord of the Rings franchise have been shot in New Zealand and touched up in the UK.

But why choose these locations over others? Often that come down to money, or to put it in the term many producers prefer, incentives. Where will they offer the best tax breaks, local crew rebates, quickest and easiest permitting, and so forth? States compete to land those blockbusters-in-the-making and some literally go broke doing so. Not the whole state, but the film commission office, where the budgets can fluctuate wildly year-to-year and success is measured in tourist influx. Few locations, outside of LA, Las Vegas and NYC, have achieved this better than Albuquerque. The six-year run of Breaking Bad has made “Duke City” a choice vacation destination for fans to come and explore the sites familiar to them from the show. Car wash, anyone?

Scenery, of course, plays a role in the choices producers make. How exotic, how typical, how outlandish; the camera can catch it all in long shot and close up. Game of Thrones seems to pick shooting sites for the visuals, uncommon to most of the world, that convey an other-worldly—or at least other time—feeling. And once the fans find out where those scenes were shot, the tourist trade goes up. And find out they do with fan sites on the Internet hounding the production for inside information.

But those are big studio productions. What about the indie producer? Not likely to have a budget big enough for the film and location scouts, many turn to another mantra, that of Fiction Writing 101: “Write what you know.” Or in paraphrase: “Go where you know.” That can help in many ways, not the least of which is cutting travel costs. Shoot in your home town and you can go home every night. Well, maybe not. Check out the philosophy of John Putch in our June issue’s Spotlight feature. His low-budget shorts were shot in his hometown area, southern Pennsylvania, but still required cast and crew to stay in hotels and motels.

And that brings up another cost savings, if you have the chutzpah to work on it: trade outs. “No promises, but we can make (fill in name of motel, restaurant, car wash) famous by showing it in our film. Oh, in return, we sure could use (fill in trade: sleeping rooms, meals, car washes) on the house.”

Hey, it works for travel writers…

My guide Dino is not a man to mince his words. “Coming here and not seeing the palace cellars is like going to Rome and missing the Colosseum.”

I keep quiet about my previous visit to Split. It was only a morning spent in transit, but I’m not sure Dino would forgive the omission. Actually, it’s a blessing that a lot of people do not visit the cellars. Upstairs, in the old town, the narrow lanes are packed with tourists – Split airport broke Croatian records for numbers this year, reflecting the massive and fast-growing popularity of the country. Down here, however, beneath the crowds, it’s cool and quiet. The truth is that the empty vaults of a Roman emperor’s palace do require a guide to bring them to life, and in particular, a Dino. He does it with extra zest.

          Uber launched its Speedboat Service in Croatia   

Uber Technologies Inc launched its speedboat service in Croatia on Friday, connecting major tourist spots along the nation’s Adriatic coast.

UberBOAT, which offers speedboats for up to 12 individuals, has already been tested in Istanbul and Miami among different areas, and will work in Croatia amid the summer tourist season.

It will compete with other boat services along the Adriatic coast.

The service will be available, via the Uber application, from the cities of Split and Dubrovnik in the southern Adriatic and from the island of Hvar. The cost of hiring a speed boat for up to eight individuals to travel from Split to Hvar, for example, will cost HRK 2,600 ($400).

“UberBOAT offers two different services – transfer between the mainland and the island or speed boat rent for half-day or entire day trips … There is no possibility to remain overnight on the boat nor to hire the boat without skipper and sailors,” Uber said in an announcement.

The clients will be able to define their own itinerary amid daily trips or opt for an organised schedule involving some of the most popular destinations.

Croatia is a well known tourist destination in Europe with tourism accounting 18 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product.

Povijest galerije

Svijest o slikarskoj veličini Emanuela Vidovića, o tome koliko je Split zadužio svojim djelovanjem kao slikar, kulturni djelatnik i nastavnik Obrtne škole, kao stup splitske likovne scene u trajanju od pola stoljeća, urodila je željom da se u Splitu otvori Vidovićeva memorijalna galerija.

Značajan korak u ostvarivanju tog cilja Grad Split napravio je 1986. godine kada je od Vidovićevih nasljednika, a po cijeni manjoj od polovice njihove stvarne vrijednosti, otkupio zbirku od 69 Vidovićevih slika koja je trebala činiti jezgru Galerije Emanuel Vidović osnovanu pri Muzeju grada Splita. Kako u to vrijeme nije riješeno pitanje smještaja Galerije, vrijedna su umjetnička djela godinama ležala u depoima Muzeja. Tek 15 godina kasnije, gradske vlasti su dodijelile Muzeju grada Splita, a svrhu preuređenja u Galeriju Vidović, klasicističku kuću kraj Srebrnih vrata.

Projekt za rekonstrukciju, adaptaciju i prenamjenu zgrade u Galeriju Vidović arhitekta Željka Kovačića kući kraj Srebrnih vrata daje suvremenu životnu funkciju i u nju unosi duh slikareva života i djela, ali pritom poštuje sve njene specifičnosti kao arhitektonskog spomenika pa je posebna pozornost usmjerena zaštiti i prezentaciji svih povijesnih slojeva kuće.

Galerija Emanuel Vidović posvećena je liku i djelu Emanuela Vidovića, a zamišljena je kao mjesto sabiranja, obrade, istraživanja, zaštite i prezentacije slikareva materijalnog i duhovnog naslijeđa. Njen postojeći i potencijalni fundus su umjetnička djela koja ocrtavaju Vidovićev slikarski razvoj od početka do kraja stvaranja te raznovrsni muzeološki materijal koji pridonosi upotpunjavanju Vidovićeve biografije te prati prezentaciju i recepciju njegova djela.

U stalnom postavu primjenjuje se kombinacija tematskog izlaganja i kronološkog slijeda. Kronološki se prate izmjene slikarevih tematsko-motivskih preokupacija, pri čemu se najbolje prate i stilske promjene u Vidovićevom radu jer su kod ovog slikara motivske novine redovito popraćene stilskima. Zasebnu cjelinu u postavu čine Vidovićevi portreti Splita u crtežu koji ne pokazuju samo Vidovićevu povezanost sa zavičajem, ali i njegovu, nerijetko osporavanu, vještinu baratanja linijom.

Jedan dio izložbenog prostora zauzima i rekonstrukcija Vidovićeva atelijera. Ona je stavljena u funkciju ambijenta-izloška koji ne otkriva samo kontekst u kojem su nastajala umjetnikova djela, nego i simulira dio stvarnih motiva Vidovićeva slikarstva.

Sporedni prostori Galerije, odnosno prostori između katova i hodnici iskorišteni su za prezentaciju dokumentarne građe o Emanuelu Vidoviću.

Na polukatu između prizemlja i prvog kata postavljen je brončani odljev poprsja Emanuela Vidovića koje je 1918. godine izradio splitski umjetnik i Vidovićev učenik Ivan Mirković. Zidovi stubišta između prizemlja i prvog kata, kao i oni između prvog i drugog kata ukrašeni su plakatima Vidovićevih izložbi, a između prvog i drugog kata, u niši antičkog zida, izloženo je nekoliko reprodukcija Vidovićevih karikatura koje podsjećaju na Vidovićevu pionirsku ulogu u promicanju karikature kao samostalne likovne discipline i na njegov angažman u splitskom humoristično-satiričkom listu Duji Balavcu u kojem je od 1908. do 1912. godine objavio 48 solidno nacrtanih karikatura.

U hodniku prvog kata može se vidjeti kolaž fotografija s popratnim legendama. Slikom i riječju prate se zanimljivi događaji iz slikareva života, kao i oni vezani uz prezentaciju i recepciju njegova djela sve do današnjih dana.

---------------------
Emanuel Božidar Vidović (1870–1953), was a painter and graphic artist from Split, Croatia.

Emanuel Vidović was instrumental in bringing the modern art ideas to Split. From 1900 he was an active member of the Literary-Art Club, and in 1907, together with Ivan Meštrović, he founded the Medulić Society. Though he had trained at the Academy of Arts in Venice, he never completed his formal studies, preferring instead to paint scenes of Venice – interiors, views of canals, lagoons and motifs from around the town of Chioggia. In 1898, he returned to his home city of Split, bringing new ideas of post-impressionist style light and intense colour. He painted plein air landscapes, and more stylized, larger canvases back in his studio. His early work contained literary allusions to South Slavic history and legends, in an art nouveau style. Later work would become darker, with brighter accents, and expressionist style black outlines around forms. His landscapes, and especially his later interiors of churches around Split and Trogir were well received by critics and the public.

Vidović was elected a corresponding member of the Yugoslav Academy of Sciences and Arts in 1949. He exhibited his work at solo and group shows within Croatia and abroad. For many years he was Professor of Drawing at the High School, and at the School of Crafts in Split.

In 1986, the Emanuel Vidović Gallery was opened in Split, featuring the life and works of the artist.


          Featured Shop: Mighty Paper   

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Photo by Mighty Paper

To hear Timea, the Berlin-based owner of stationery and supplies shop Mighty Paper, talk about her favorite eraser, you’d think she was rhapsodizing about a glittering 20-carat diamond ring or a postcard-ready view of the South Pacific. Her voice catches a little, you can sense her eyes drifting off dreamily into the middle distance, and her proclamations of perfection taper off in a contented sigh. This enthusiasm is incomprehensible to anyone who is not equally obsessed with well-designed office supplies and paper goods, and immediately recognizable to anyone who is.

A former managing assistant of an NGO and a full-time Etsy seller for the last four years (her first shop, Mighty Vintage, carries colorful midcentury home decor and furnishings), Timea tapped into her entrepreneurial side on a whim. “I started my first Etsy shop because I wanted to have something on my own, although I didn’t know what, exactly,” Timea says. “I liked that it was easy to open a shop as an experiment, without needing to invest too much money or time.” That small initial investment paid off fast: Within a year and a half, she had quit her day job to run her shop, while also discovering the creative outlet she’d looked for in a few other places (design school, for one), but never quite found.

Today, Timea indulges her lifelong affinity for paper goods and supplies while maintaining Mighty Vintage and even dabbling in a vintage jewelry shop on the side. (“As you see, I have this thing about opening shops,” Timea says.) For now, it’s Mighty Paper that has a hold on her heart. “I never thought two years ago that I would have a stationery business,” says Timea, “but now I have it, and it’s what I love the most.”

Read on to learn how Timea turned an experiment into an empire in the making, and shop the Mighty Paper collection

You’ve had a lot of success with the first shop you started on Etsy, Mighty Vintage. What inspired you to branch out into the stationery world?

My boyfriend and I travel a lot, and there are two things we always do everywhere we go: visit flea markets and go to stationery stores. Both of us grew up in Eastern Europe, where you had really great, simple, yet high-quality stationery in school. Most of those old brands are gone now, but we still craved those kinds of materials and couldn’t find them anywhere in Germany. Every time we traveled abroad, we were always hoping to find something from the old times, or at least something that was similar.

Two years ago we took a three-week trip all across the Balkans, through Hungary, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia, and Croatia, and we picked up so many great things in the stationery stores there—much more than we needed for ourselves. When we came back, the idea for Mighty Paper started to grow in my head. It took a while to realize, okay, maybe we could try this; my first Etsy shop had been an experiment, and I began to see that this could be one too.

The idea of opening a stationery shop was appealing for a few other reasons as well. A stationery or supplies store is not as dependent on me and my taste as a vintage store is, and it doesn’t require me to take a picture each and every time I find something for my shop. Also, with my first shop, I was living and breathing and eating vintage for years, and I wanted a new creative outlet that was completely different from what I had done before.

What was it that appealed to you so much about stationery, and how do you decide whether a particular product is right for your shop?

First of all, I love stationery because you can touch it. Everything these days is very digital, it’s either on your laptop or on your smartphone, and every time you shut down that device, it’s gone; you don’t have anything left in your hand. When you sit at your desk all day, you deserve to have something that’s beautiful and of high quality. That’s why I write with ink as much as I can—it relaxes me. And when I look for pieces for the shop, I always go back to that feeling: the desire to have something high quality that brings joy to your everyday life. It’s about the small things, the details; you don’t have to have the big-bang stuff to have a good life, if you have small pieces that bring you joy.

Style-wise, I love everything that is a bit retro and nostalgic. For example, I love the brand Koh-I-Noor, and we have many pieces from them in the shop. It’s a Czech stationery brand that used to be around when I was a kid in Eastern Europe, and I was so delighted when I found out they were still making most of the designs from 40 years ago. I also love fun and colorful pieces that are a bit vintage-inspired, and tend to look for the same qualities for Mighty Paper items as for the vintage shop: a bit of humor, a bit of whimsy, things that don’t take themselves too seriously. But of course we like new trends as well, and if there is a new trend that’s breaking through somewhere, then we’ll go on a hunt to find those items too.

How do you go about sourcing the items for Mighty Paper?

Well, it’s a mix. I go to all kinds of stores, because you never know where an interesting design might end up. I also go to wholesalers, of course, but because I really need to see the pieces myself, to see how they’re made, how they feel, and how they look with my own eyes, I only buy things online after I’ve seen them in person. I also love to check out small manufacturers and will often drive out to visit their factories. What I love most, though, is going to trade fairs where you can see as many brands as possible within a couple of days, touch the items, speak with the makers, and discover smaller manufacturers that you hadn’t seen before.

Which items from your shop are your personal favorites?

I love my Pelikan fountain pens and the inks; I use them every day—at home, in the office, and on the go. And also my sharpeners from Mobius & Ruppert—nobody makes better sharpeners than those. They have a new sharpener now called the Pollux that creates a concave tip, and I cannot tell you how much joy it brings me. You have to check it out—you can see videos of how it works on YouTube. I can’t wait until my pencil is a bit worn off so I can sharpen it again. Oh, and erasers: I don’t know what it is with erasers, but they just attract me everywhere I go. I love the pebble erasers from Koh-I-Noor. They’re perfect.

You’ve mentioned in your shop descriptions that, “having a business is by far the most creative journey of all.” I’d love to hear more about that.

When I was in school, everyone would say, “You should be an artist because you’re so creative,” or, “You should be a designer.” And I did start on that path—I went to design school, but it just didn’t work out for some reason. I was frustrated because I thought, “Man, I’m supposed to be a creative, designer/artist person and now I’m not.” So I studied English and French and became a translator and an interpreter, and I loved it, but I always had this creative side of me that I wasn’t really using in my life.

Then, when I started my Etsy shop, I realized that being creative doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to design something, or be an artist and paint all day. For me, being an entrepreneur is the most creative thing I can imagine: You can focus on any side of your business that you love and that you do best; you can change your schedule on a daily basis; you can change the products you sell or the services you offer at any time; or you can just plunge into the next adventure. That’s what I really love about it, that it’s absolutely creative.

What aspects of running your Etsy shop make you feel most stimulated, inspired, and engaged?

The hunt, of course, is really engaging, and so is the contact you have with buyers and with other sellers. Here in Berlin we have a really great community of Etsy sellers and I don’t think I would be where I am without that community. But my favorite part about all of it is just the developing of a business—opening a shop and developing a brand, inventing the look and the language of a shop. It’s very stimulating and fulfilling for me.

What’s your process like for developing an aesthetic or a brand for a shop? Did you start Mighty Paper already knowing how you wanted it to look or did that come together over time?

Well, I have been doing Mighty Vintage for five years, and that was a more gradual process; I had to grow into the aesthetic that I have now. But after selling online for a while, you start to have a very clear idea of what you want, and for Mighty Paper I knew I wanted to have something light, something airy, something colorful and fun. Buying vintage pieces is often a hard decision, and for stationery I wanted the opposite; I wanted to give the buyer the feeling of, “Oh, I like this, I’m just going to buy it.” I love putting the items in a new perspective, playing with them, and taking them out of context to create curiosity in the buyer. That’s what it’s all about, I think.

What are your go-to sources of inspiration in your work, or your life in general?

The biggest one is traveling—every time I travel it’s like somebody has opened up a tap and everything just flows and I’m taking it all in. I love that. I’m also inspired by other people: creative friends and other Etsy sellers. How they see the world, what their aesthetic is, what colors they like, the ideals they have for their business or their products—all of those things inspire me and give me ideas about my own business. Lately I have gotten into reading a lot about other female entrepreneurs.

Which female entrepreneurs do you admire most?

Um, Beyoncé? But besides that, there are a lot of bloggers I admire: I love Grace Bonney, the editor of Design Sponge; I love Emily Henderson, and the way she uses a lot of vintage items and whimsical things; and I love Joy Cho’s blog and her colorful, playful aesthetic.

What’s next for Mighty Paper?

Well for me, Mighty Paper is still quite young. I would love to add more items to the range, but I’m very careful about picking the products, so it takes a while. I would also like to add more manufacturers, and I’ve recently started to think about designing a few exclusive Mighty Paper pieces myself, but that’s still in a very early development stage. I’m very curious to see where this journey will take me in the next five or 10 years.

We reccomend mr. Aronadio for the best director because we believe his film uses humorous tension and imagination in a well-balanced way, the story proceeds rhythmically by getting a really well-built movie.
Epomeo Award for Cinematographic Photography
Rocco Marra and Roberta Allegrini for the movie CAINA
 
Motivation of the jury
We consider Cain's cinematography a faithful mirror of cruelty and the lack of empathy that the film itself denounces. The camera keeps the distance, the camera just looks. Images are gray, inconsistent, dark, lightless, hopeless.
Avenir at the best scenery
George Thomson for the movie LE MONDE DONT ON REVE N'EXISTE PAS
 
Motivation of the jury
Choosing the landscape - an unspoilt nature in which people still have time to live in contrast to a modern apartment in a chaotic city - is perfect for telling the story of a fleeing world.
Ischia Film Award for Best Short Film
SELFIE by David M. Lorenz
 
Motivation of the jury
We award this film for the best short film for the precise use of modern technologies, for the intelligent use of parallel mounting and for the clear and far-sighted use of film discourse in such a limited time. What a hit!
Special mention to:
THE SILENCE OF Farnoosh Samedi and Ali Asgari
THE TRANSFER by Michael Grudsky
 
Motivation of the jury
We have decided to give the special mention for these two exceptional shorts that underline the need for communication in such tangled society. Both works, albeit very different, offer a clear statement of strong and powerful princes.
The Italian Jury, composed by film critic Gianni Canova, journalist Franco Dassisti and stage designer Daniela Ciancio, has deliberated:
 
Ischia Film Award at Best Documentary
UNWANTED HERITAGE by Irena Skoric
 
Motivation of the jury
"The maturity of a society can be measured by the relationship it establishes with the legacy of its past."
So it sounds like the phrase of architect Tomislav Premerl that opens this film. A meticulous work to reconstruct a relationship with an uncomfortable artistic-monumental legacy, which director Irena Skoric did not compromise with that time, for reasons of memories, began with a game: to complete a figurine album of the monuments of former Yugoslavia Tito. Wet testimonies of a past that was "daily" for many generations, now neglected or abandoned. And so, "I have it, I miss it", the director tells us the relationship that people and the territory of Croatia have kept with that History. And why it is important not to destroy the signs, especially those of artistic value, capable of more than others, to tell an age. Not to become like those who, by iconoclastic fury, destroy masterpieces of humanity like those of Palmira.
 
Special mention to:
ANOTHER ME by Claudio Casazza
 
Motivation of the jury
Often documentaries are content with the urgency of "telling" what. Claudio Casazza in Another also questions me also and above all about "how" to tell. His film not only dives into the disturbed universe of prisoners of sexual offenses in Bollate jail but breaks the naturalistic canons of movie language and uses the film syntax (from out of focus to retail) to find A form that calls the spectator into question and interrogates him on what he sees. From this point of view, thanks to the form created by the film, the title - in some way - all concerns us. Another me is, after all, each one of us.
 
BAYER Location Negata Location
THE INVISIBLE CITY [KAKUMA] by Lieven Corthouts
 
Motivation of the jury
Kakuma means "Nothing". In fact, Kakuma is a ghost town, grown up in nothingness, and soon became a place of hope and suffering. Director Lieven Courthouts, following with a pronounced poetic vein the affair of u
An 8-year-old girl gives us pictures of apocalyptic films and paintings by Van Gogh. What here are the geometric patterns of the roofs, all the same, of an immense oil stain that accommodates refugees fleeing from Conflict around Kenya. Children sent by exhausted parents. But children have a greater march and, against any forecast, they rise, organize, and build their future. In the middle of nowhere. Special attention to: Marco D'Amore for the interpretation of the short film MAN IN THE SEA by Emanuele Palamara Motivation of the juryA Marco d'Amore, intense protagonist of Man at Sea. Choosing a common man to stand on the right and cooperate with justice is a cage that slowly takes away certainties, affects and the very meaning of life. The actor interprets this descent into hell with progressive and growing suffering, creating a tormented soul location and empathy with the spectator sharing motives and paths.Premio Augustus Color under Saddam Wahidi's Location negated by MARY MOTHER Motivation Of the jury A place / no place. No one's land. A war-ravaged landscape, but also the sorrowful heart of a mother who is being punished for the fate of a son soldier in a fallen Afghanistan city under the Taliban. Among all the movies in the denied Location section, Mary Mother and the one with the places the most upsetting relationship: almost an impossible love story between a woman and a land that can no longer be loved ... who made a movie So deserves confidence and support because it can still explore its worlds and become them all.

There really are no major differences in the casting of a love spell for a gay man or a lesbian woman, a straight LESIBIAN man or heterosexual woman, the approach is pretty much the same. In my line of work when it comes to gay clients I have found a serious lack of understanding or compassion on the behalf of other practitioners for their gay and lesbian clients, being a gay man myself, I have worked hard over the years to develop a rapport with my gay and lesbian clientele, with that said I have also managed to maintain a positive rapport with my straight clients as well, working metaphysically on behalf of clients is easy once you develop a good understanding of the base needs and realize that we all are simply human and it is within our nature to love and to be loved.Now, aside from the fact that we are all human, whether we are straight or gay, when it comes to gay magic, there are a few minor tweaks in the magical approach that must be acknowledged and put into play to successfully unite or reunite same sex lovers. I have worked hard over the course of my magical career to develop a series of rituals and spells that I utilize specifically for my gay and lesbian clients.If you are a gay man or lesbian woman who is in need of attracting a new lover, or perhaps your desire is to reunite with an old flame, I can help you manifest your desires and realize your goal of bringing that special someone into your life. If you are single and looking to attract a brand new lover, click the link above to order a "Gay Love Spell" to get started. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman looking to reunite with your lover, you will need to order my .
