Excellent quality content – Museum of Illusion. Thus, the people of Split and all their guests will witness the realm of illusions, unusual rooms, vortex tunnels, interesting holograms, and other exhibits that are mostly produced in Croatia, which we are extremely proud of. We are constantly talking about the importance of quality, authentic and different content in our tourist destinations, and the city of Split is richer for just one excellent quality content. Namely, the Museum of Illusions opened its doors yesterday at the address Andrija Kačića Miošića 2. An excellent tourist story and quality entertainment and tourist content Museum of Illusion, is proof of how the business model of private museums can work. On the contrary, it works great, even outside our borders through the franchise model, and so our export tourist product is set. center_img “A sincere smile, helping visitors with all the important information, ie caring for the end user are just some of the reasons why most of our visitors come back several times. This is a fact that we consider to be the greatest indicator of our success, perhaps more than the incredible number of franchises opened worldwide. In the last few years, Split has been the leader of Croatian tourism, a kind of capital of the Croatian coast. The cheerful spirit of its inhabitants makes it a perfect host. The Museum of Illusions will only further complement its already generous cultural and entertainment offer not only to the residents of Split and its surroundings but also to all its guests.”They point out from the Museum of Illusions. Fans of your character and work will enjoy a table of clones where you sit with yourself and five other of your clones. Moire’s patterns will allow you to experience the creation of an infinite number of illusions, while deceptive rings and a deceptive stick will skillfully play with your sense of space. An ambiguous cylinder will teach you that direct views of objects and their reflections in a mirror create different interpretations of their shapes. Behind every illusion lies the science that will be skillfully conveyed to future visitors by museum guides and illusionists on each tour. Photo: Museum of Illusionlast_img read more

Four teams still in the running for Turbo football honours

first_imgTHE battle is on for the Turbo Knockout Football title. Four teams are still in the running to lift the trophy and grand prize.Today’s semi-finals will see two teams move forward to the final hurdle with a chance to pocket half-a-million dollars. The losers have to settle for half of that.In the first of the two matches at the Ministry of Education ground, Carifesta Avenue, the Georgetown-based Camptown, who have largely surprised the rest of the field, will stand before Pouderoyen while the boys in blue battle Grove.The city side Camptown will meet West Demerara’s Pouderoyen after which the colossal clash between Police and Grove Hi Tech will take place.Advancing through the detriment of Linden’s Silver Shattas, the Camptown side will have plenty to prove against an effervescent and improving Pouderoyen unit..The West Dem side has shown over previous tournaments that they possess something special and whether this is their tournament remains to be seen.What is known is that only one team can emerge from that fixture as champions and the prediction is a 2-1 scoreline in favour of Camptown.The second match of the night is anyone’s game, since both Police and Grove have produced hands-down some of the best football games of the tournament.If there were to be odds, however, they would have to go to Police, considering that they had won their last tournament in convincing manner.Still, upsets are nothing strange in football and one could very well be on the cards knowing the nature of the tournament.The first semi-final is expected to kick off at 18:30hrs with the second commencing at 21:00 hrs.The runners-up will receive $250 000. The third-place team will receive $125 000 and fourth-place finishers will have to settle for $75 000.last_img read more

Journalist Julie Chen talks to students

first_imgJournalist Julie Chen visited the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism on Tuesday as a guest speaker for Professor Mary Murphy’s entertainment, business and media course.Chen, who co-hosts CBS’ The Talk and the CBS reality series Big Brother, graduated from the Annenberg School in 1991.Q&A ·Mary Murphy, professor at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, interviewed journalist and media personality Julie Chen on Tuesday night. – Samuel Chang | Daily TrojanMurphy said that Chen, along with Barbara Walters, Meredith Vieira and Katie Couric have expanded the role of female journalists on American television. Annenberg Dean Ernest Wilson III said it was fitting to welcome Chen as one of the first guests in the new Wallis Annenberg Hall.“I applaud the example she presents to the Annenberg school, which is 80 percent women,” Wilson said.During her time at Annenberg, Chen said she and her fellow students were told it would be beneficial to take a job in a smaller news market but she was reluctant to leave Los Angeles and worked for four years behind the scenes at the local ABC station before taking a job at a local news station in Dayton, Ohio.“I looked at that job as a super long business trip,” Chen said.She admitted that she has faced sexism and racial discrimination throughout her career. While in Dayton she was told she would not get the opportunity to anchor the newscast because she was Asian and, therefore, didn’t look like the market the newscast was attempting to reach.Chen admitted publicly on The Talk last year that she had eyelid surgery but emphasized to Murphy’s class that it was not an attempt to look less Asian, though some in her family were offended by her decision.“I met with an agent who looked at my resume tape and was saying you have to [get the surgery] to look more interested. During your cutaway shots you look bored. This guy said ‘You get it done, you will go to a top ten market.’ I did.” Chen said.Chen said that while women in the news industry have made great strides, society still treats women differently from men, and it will likely remain that way for the foreseeable future.“I feel there is a level of sexism when a woman can’t go gray if they’re in front of the camera but a man can,” Chen said.But that was only one of many difficult decisions Chen would face. After moving to New York and starting work as a newsreader for CBS, she was approached about hosting a new reality show called Big Brother. At the time, Chen said she was still doing the morning news in New York and her dream was to work for 60 Minutes. She was told she could continue doing morning news, but if she did not take the job hosting Big Brother it could be considered insubordination because she was a CBS employee.“They said they needed someone who knows how to ask questions on live TV and I asked ‘Am I forever sealing the door on 60 Minutes?’ and [the person in charge of the news division] said ‘yes,’” Chen said.Chen, who is married to CBS President and CEO Les Moonves, said that after she had a baby she wanted to stay in Los Angeles permanently rather than move between Los Angeles and New York. When the opportunity came along to be a co-host on The Talk, it was intriguing.Chen is the only journalist by trade who sits on the panel which consists of Chen, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler, Sharon Osbourne and Sara Gilbert. Much of the show consists of interviewing celebrities rather than covering hard news stories as Chen did early in her career.“It’s a lot of fun,” Chen said. “It’s not as important, but at this age and stage of my life I have a five-year-old, I can’t get sent to the Middle East because I may not come back.”Joshua Guerra, a sophomore psychology major, said it was interesting hearing about the variety of subjects Chen had the opportunity to cover.“I’m considering studying journalism,” Guerra said. “I don’t watch The Talk and I didn’t know much about Julie [Chen], but it was interesting that she made such a big jump in her career.”Freshman public relations major Alena Beas said she follows celebrity culture and news closely and was excited to have the opportunity to speak with Chen in person.“Annenberg always discusses how they are able to bring important, well-educated guest speakers, and tonight they did,” Beas said.For sophomore psychology major Melissa Hatch, the fact the Chen was a USC alumna was the most exciting part of the event.“She was in our place not too long ago and, being a woman, it was great to see how she made it so far,” Hatch said.last_img read more
