Excellent innovative virtual campaign of the Faroe Islands – Remote Tourism

first_imgWhen the borders are gradually opened and the tourist market is activated, in whatever framework, the fight begins for literally every guest. That is why it is necessary to prepare promotional concepts and be ready to attack the market in a targeted and aggressive way. Let’s be sure the noise in communication is going to be awfully big. And when that’s the case, then it’s important to stand out from the crowd with a different promotion and concept. Right now is the time to position. One small Faroe Islands shattered and delighted with an innovative virtual tour and concept Today, it’s never easier to send a message, but it’s never harder to get attention because there’s a terrible noise in communication on a daily basis. Croatia, on the other hand, has incredibly authentic and unique stories, which cannot be copied and which are excellent foundations for storytelling. But we simply do not tell these stories, either through promotion or in the destination through interesting tourist facilities. We continue to sell and present ourselves through the sun and the sea. But now we have reached a new phase – the planning phase and the soon activation of the promotion because the market is slowly waking up, the summer tourist season is slowly knocking on the door, and despite the fact that borders are still closed, all countries are entering a phase of easing measures and negotiations between states about opening borders, of course if epidemiological conditions allow it. Today, in the 21st century, I expect such and similar things from the Croatian National Tourist Board. A different and modern promotion, which is out of the box, which attracts attention with a strong narrative. Mosaic videos simply no longer pass or make sense. Locals are equipped with a live video camera that allows people not only to look at the view from an immediate perspective, but also control where and how they explore using the control button to move, walk, run or even jump. Of course, during the broadcast, the hosts tell a story and thus further acquaint viewers or virtual travelers about their destination. While some tourist destinations came out with great narratives and campaigns, such as Portugal and Tenerife, our tourist destinations were a little late with the reaction and practically only started the same communication last week. So we could see videos of Split, Opatija, Dubrovnik and Zagreb inviting guests to dream today and travel tomorrow. In the first phase of the shock caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, tourist destinations started with inspiring videos on which they sent messages to keep tourists at home and travel later. Several virtual tours have been made, and see in the video below what one of the virtual tours of the Faroe Islands looked like. When you are “small” and when you are struggling with big fish / destinations that have a much bigger budget, brand and market position then you have to be fast, proactive, creative and innovative to stand out from the crowd and get the much desired focus and attention. Namely, it is an innovative way of promotion Remote Tourism, which allows a virtual visit to the Faroe Islands, by locals / hosts putting a helmet on the head on which the camera is, and through the “virtual remote” virtual tourists can control the movements of locals in real time and thus get to know the destination. Watch a great video about the announcement of the entire Remote Tourism campaign. This is exactly what the Faroe Islands, located in the North Atlantic, halfway between Iceland and Norway, did. The country with only 50.000 inhabitants, otherwise a Danish autonomous province, does not have a starting position and predisposition for tourism development, especially comparing it with Croatia or other well-known tourist destinations in Europe. But, that is why there is an innovative and creative way of promotion to position themselves globally and come into focus. See more about the whole campaign at remote-tourism.com, and you can follow her on the official FB page Visit Faroe Islands In this global crisis, we wondered how we could recreate the Faroe Islands experience for those who had to cancel or postpone their trip to the Faroe Islands – and for everyone else who remained in insolation around the world, says Guðrið Højgaard, director of the Faroe Islands Tourist Board. island and adds: “We came up with the idea of ​​what if we could allow people in any world to explore the islands as virtual tourists through the eyes of the locals? Or better yet; What if virtual tourists can control domestic movements in real time? A couple of weeks later our idea became a reality. We have created a new tool for long-distance tourism, the first of its kind. You can explore the Faroe Islands via mobile phone, tablet or computer through real-time interaction”Says Højgaard. “We hope that a visit to our remote islands through the eyes and body of the locals will bring inspiration in these challenging times – and, of course, we hope to personally welcome visitors when everyone is free to travel again.”Concludes Højgaard. Storytelling is the foundation of branding today’s products and tourist destinations. Sell ​​me a story, not a product – It’s a mantra storytelling.  Either you play the game or not? Thus, for the first time, travelers can virtually “remotely” explore one of the most beautiful and untouched places on the planet – the Faroe Islands, as pointed out by the tourist office of the Faroe Islands. Everyone wants to hear a good story We don’t have 10 seconds to bother us, but we do have 10 minutes to hear a great and interesting story. For a long time, marketing has not been based on the things we want to sell, but on the stories we tell. And so Coca-Cola, Apple, Nike, etc.… have not been selling products for a long time, but stories. The new website allows virtual visitors to explore the Faroe Islands live – with the local Faroe Islands, who will act as eyes, ears and body on a virtual exploratory tour of the destination, from the Faroe Islands Tourist Office. Are we playing a game or not? We are all fighting in the market for the same tourists, and the winners will be those who are primarily engaged in market development, who follow trends and those who are innovative and creative. Mosaic videos are a thing of the past as well as inviting followers to share their photos on social media.last_img read more

UK regulator rejects MiFID II sector coverage fears

first_imgThe chief executive of the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has rejected claims that the implementation of MiFID II regulations has hit research coverage of certain sectors, and instead welcomed the cut in spending by fund managers.In a speech at an event hosted by the European Association of Independent Research Providers (Euro IRP) in London on Monday, Andrew Bailey said the FCA had been aware that the MiFID II could lead to a drop in the number of research houses covering less popular small and middle-sized companies.He said the regulator had taken steps to ease any potential impact, including allowing “free distribution of research that supports capital raising events, allowing issuer-sponsored research – an important source of coverage for smaller companies – to be freely circulated and clarifying that research made publicly available cannot be an inducement”.Bailey said that, since implementation, the FCA had watched for evidence of change in this sector: “The evidence is, so far, inconclusive, and does not suggest the dramatically negative impact that some predicted.” Andrew Bailey, chief executive, FCA“Similarly, LSE order book data for 2018 point to a material increase in trading volumes between 2018 and 2019, especially for small caps, suggesting liquidity has been maintained in the market,” he added.However, earlier this month, two surveys showed professionals working in the asset management sector thought there had been a drop off in the scale and quality of provision.CFA Institute, which spoke to 500 professionals, found almost half of those providing the research thought the quality had decreased overall. Just 44% of respondents working for banks or brokerages said the quality of research had remained constant in the 12 months since the introduction of the regime. The same number said research quality of small and mid-cap stocks had decreased.Another survey, from broker Peel Hunt and the Quoted Companies Alliance, said nearly two thirds of investors – 62% – believed less research was being produced on mid and small-cap companies. A third said they expected further reductions in both the volume and quality of research in the future.At the event in London yesterday, Bailey said the FCA estimated that the asset management industry – and by extension asset owners – had saved around £180m (€209m) in fees since the implementation of the updated directive.He said that this would amount to a saving of around £1bn over the next five years.“Importantly, buy-side firms have indicated they can still access the research they need,” said Bailey. “This may reflect the low ‘entry level’ prices for written research, alongside more thoughtful consumption across the board.”Chris Deavin, chair of Euro IRP said in a statement following the event: “We are very appreciative of the continuing focus from the FCA on the competitiveness of the investment research industry, and welcome Andrew Bailey’s confirmation of the zero inducement risk that asset managers have in taking research services from independent research providers.“As all independent research providers by definition rely on the inherent quality of their services in order to be successful, we also fully support the FCA’s stated view that quality, rather than quantity of research, is the key metric that the buyside should apply in evaluating their research services consumption.” Data for the 2015-18 period showed analyst coverage levels on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) Main Market and Alternative Investment Market remained broadly consistent, Bailey said.last_img read more

Italian Maritime Robotics Expert Scoops DNV GL COMPIT Award

first_imgMarco Bibuli was announced as the winner of the DNV GL COMPIT Award 2017, which took place in Cardiff this year.This is the tenth time that a scientist has been presented with the DNV GL COMPIT Award at this conference.The Italian maritime robotics expert, working at the Italian research centre CNR-ISSIA in Genoa, was honoured for his work on team-capable, smart robots.“The jury singled out Marco Bibuli, because his work brought advanced techniques of Artificial Intelligence to practical applications, representing innovative engineering at its finest. In Bibuli’s applications, the robots are not replacing the human, but act as caddies, supporting a diver in his work, for enhanced efficiency and safety,” says COMPIT organizer Volker Bertram from DNV GLThrough a combination of machine vision, machine learning and cybernetics (control engineering), Bibuli has developed the project through to the first field testing stages. The prototypes give a glance at a future where robots become ubiquitous helpers, used for underwater inspection, cleaning, rescue operations, tank surveys and other tasks, supporting divers for increased safety and efficiency.COMPIT is the abbreviation for “Computer Applications and Information Technology in the Maritime Industries”. The conference, which took place for the sixteenth time, offered information on advanced IT applications for the lifecycle of ships and offshore structures. Topics such as “Autonomous maritime systems”, “Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality”, “Yards 4.0” and “Big Data”, amongst others, were discussed by the participants. As in previous years, DNV GL was a main sponsor of this event.last_img read more

Message to the Venezuelan people by President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez Frias

first_img Sharing is caring! 25 Views   no discussions President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez Frias “I expect a lot from time. His large womb has more hope than past events and future events will be superior to the former.” Simón Bolívar.Time and its rhythm, time and its mandate, time and plans, as outlined in Ecclesiastes, led me to read this communiqué here today to the Venezuelan nation and the international public opinion, very attentive as they have all been to my health’s evolution, which has for several weeks been giving evident signs of deterioration.After the excellent tour we did in Brazil and Ecuador between June 5 and 7 we arrived to the always supportive Cuba, to end the journey with the review and signing of new cooperation agreements.I confess that from my health’s standpoint I had only planned to undertake a checkup in my left knee, having almost recovered from that injury in early May.Throughout my life I came to commit one of those errors that could easily fit in that category of what some philosopher called “fundamental errors”: neglecting my health and also being very reluctant to screening and treatment. Without anydoubt, what a fundamental mistake! Especially in a revolutionary with some modest responsibilities as those imposed by the revolution for more than 30 years.However, being in La Havana, towards the end of the day on Wednesday June 8, while being once again with Fidel, a giant that has already exceeded all times and places. It was certainly not difficult for Fidel to realize some discomforts, which beyond my left knee, I had been trying to hide for the last couple of weeks. He interrogated me almost like a doctor, and I confessed almost like a patient,and that night the immense medical team that the Cuban Revolution has achieved for its people, and much of the world, was put to our disposition, initiating a series of examinations and diagnoses.Hence a strange formation was detected in the pelvic area that required emergency surgery before the imminent risk of generalized infection. That was very early in the morning on Saturday June 11th, a few hours before the announcement was read to the country and the world, sparking many demonstrations of solidarity that continue to excite each moment.After that operation, which had initially accomplished drainage of the abscess, intensive antibiotic treatment began with a positive evolution, bringing notableimprovement. However, despite the generally positive performance, during the process of drainage and dressings, the presence of other cellular formations, which had not been previously detected, became evident then.Therefore, they immediately began another series of special studies cytochemical cytological, microbiological and of anatomical pathology that confirmed the existence of a tumor abscess with presence of cancerous cells, which required a second surgical procedure to completely remove the tumor.It was a major intervention, performed without complications, after which I continued to evolve successfully, while receiving complementary treatments to combat the various types of cells found and continue on the path of my full recovery.Meanwhile, I have been and continue being informed, and in control of the actions of the Bolivarian government, in constant communication with my partner, Vice President Elias Jaua and all of my government team.I deeply appreciate the many enthusiastic demonstrations of solidarity that I have received from the Venezuelan people and other sister countries, as well as Heads of State and Government of many countries around the world, with the conviction that all of that love, that all of this solidarity constitute the most sublime boost of energy that will continue to drive my desire to win this new battle that life has put ahead of us, and most especially to the Cuban people, the Cuban nation, Fidel, Raul, to the entire legion of medical doctors that have become the forefront of this battle in a truly sublime manner. However, I have also been very aware of some degree of anxiety and uncertainty that has been traveling along these days and these nights, the soul and the body of the Venezuelan nation.I think that beyond the manipulative attempts of somewell known sectors, those feelings were and are inevitable and are part of human nature itself, surrounded by the circumstances that surround it and often shake it, as it happens in this caseFrom the beginning I have assumed all the responsibilities for the strict care of veracity of the information to be transmitted, based on a double set of reasons: a medical-scientific reason, first, and second, an especially cared reason from the depths of my soul and my conscience, a human reason, a love reason, to be more precise, for love reasons!From the first, this is, the medical reason, we have already spoken a bit. It has been a slow process and careful approach and diagnosis, advances and discoveries over several stages, applying a rigorous scientific process that will not accept rush or pressure of any kind. The supreme norm behind this powerful reason is the full scientific verification, beyond the evidence and suspicions thatappeared.And in reference to the love reason, I am now forced to speak from deep inside me. At this moment I remember February 4th of that roaring 1992. That day I had no choice but to talk to Venezuela from my demise, from a path I felt dragging me towards an unfathomable abyss. As from a dark cavern of my soul sprang the”for now” and then I sank.Also at this time came to memory those fateful hours of April 11, 2002. Then also I sent my beloved Venezuelan people that message, written from the Naval Base Turiamo, where I was a prisoner, deposed President and prisoner. It was like a song of pain, released from the bottom of another abyss, I felt being swallowed in his throat and I was sinking and sinking.Now in this new moment of difficulty, and especially since Fidel Castro himself, the same as in the Moncada Barracks, the same of Granma, the very same from the Sierra Maestra, the giant of all times, came to announce the hard news of finding cancer, I began to ask my Lord Jesus, the God of my parents, as it would have been said by Simon Bolivar, the mantle of the Virgin, as it would have been said by my mother Elena, the spirits of the savannah, as said by Florentino Coronado, to grant me the opportunity to speak, not from another abysmal path, not from a dark cave or a night without stars. Now I wanted to speak to them from this steep road where I feel I am already leaving another abyss. Now I wanted to talk to them with the morning sun which I feel enlightens me. I think we succeeded. Thank God!And finally, my beloved and dear countrymen, my beloved daughters and sons, my dear fellow youth and children, my brave soldiers, my loyal workers, my dear women patriots, my beloved people, all and one in my heart I want to say that I want to talk to you today from my new challenge towards the return has nothing to do with myself now, but with you, patriotic people, good people. I domdon’t want you to accompany me in this path that may sink into an abyss. I invite you to stay together to climb new heights, that there are “semerucos” there on the hill and a beautiful song to sing, continues to say from eternity the singer of the people, our dear Ali Primera.! Let us go, lets go, with our father Bolivar, in the vanguard, to follow up the summit of Chimborazo!Thank God! Thank you my people! Thank you, darling!To victory!We will win!Havana, a beloved and heroic Havana, June 30, 2011.From the great nation, I say from my heart, from my whole soul, from my supreme hope, which is that of my people: For now and forever we will live and win!Thank you! Until my return!

Tennis News Prajnesh Gunneswaran loses to Daniil Medvedev, India singles challenge ends in US Open 2019

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Daniil Medvedev defeated Novak Djokovic recently.Daniil Medvedev took a medica timeout immediately after the second set.The 29-year-old from Chennai competed in all Grand Slams this season.center_img New York: India’s Prajnesh Gunneswaran got a taste of high level tennis in his first-round exit from the US Open, losing to world number five Daniil Medvedev in straight sets in New York. The gulf between Prajnesh and top-10 players were wide and apparent as he lost 4-6 1-6 2-6 to the Russian, who recently vanquished multiple Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic. The Indian left-hander began aggressively but could not maintain intensity after losing the well-fought first set at Louis Armstrong Stadium on Monday. The pressure induced unending unforced errors from Prajnesh, who was trying too hard. He had the heart to fight but lacked experience of playing at this level against the best in business. Nevertheless, the 29-year-old from Chennai competed in all Grand Slams this season, though he is yet to win a round in the singles main draw. Long rallies featured from the word go, though, Prajnesh took some time to find his range. The Indian dropped his serve in the very first game of the match but broke back Medvedev in the fourth with a crushing inside-out forehand winner after serving at love. The Russian broke back immediately when he placed a cross-court forehand from baseline in the open court.It was a dogfight but Medvedev nosed ahead again with another break of serve and consolidated it with a hold. Prajnesh mixed it up nicely by striking hard from the baseline with his free-flowing forehand and played some deft drop shots to set up points. Prajnesh’s body language was aggressive while Medvedev largely remained calm as the Russian served big and his solid returns in long rallies helped him take those extra points. Unforced errors from Prajnesh when Medvedev served for the opening set made easy the job of the Russian.Prajnesh began the second set with double faults and a forehand error at 30-all put him down by a breakpoint, which Medvedev converted. From here it became a one-way traffic as unforced errors from Prajnesh continued to pile and soon he was down 0-3 with a double break. He finally got on the board in the fifth game but was now trailing 1-4. The second set was over in no time with more and more errors coming off the Indian’s racquet.Medvedev took a medical timeout immediately after the second set to treat his left thigh but did not let Prajnesh take any advantage. He played smartly by making the points short. Prajnesh only helped his rival’s cause by not curtailing errors. He had lost steam and was going all out but the balls just flew over the lines. Medvedev had no trouble in closing the match in his favour after one hour and 24 minutes.last_img read more

MLAX : SQUEEZE PLAY: Orange stays patient, finds open seams against Tigers defense to stay perfect

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ PRINCETON, N.J. — Stephen Keogh was playing a game within the game. The Syracuse attack stayed on the crease, tricking out his defender to try and get open. Fortunately for Keogh, the teammates who were sending passes his way knew exactly what he was doing.‘I think just trying to play games with my man and set picks,’ Keogh said. ‘Jeremy (Thompson) and Joel (White) are both former box players, so the pick-and-roll games, they’re well aware of it.’Against Princeton’s defensive game plan, that was the Orange’s answer. As the Tigers packed around the crease, Syracuse (9-0, 2-0 Big East) stayed patient. It turned to Keogh for help in breaking through, and he responded with three goals to help send No. 1 SU to a 7-5 win over Princeton (2-6) in front of 5,401 at Princeton Stadium on Saturday.The Tigers tried to force SU to take shots from the outside. They packed the crease, placing defenders near the cage to try to keep Syracuse’s scorers from shooting close. With so many defenders around the crease, the Orange attack was left open as it passed around the outside.In the first quarter, SU’s offense was called for stalling, a call that infuriated SU head coach John Desko. His argument was that if the Tigers weren’t defending, then the Orange shouldn’t be called for stalling.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDesko sprinted down the sideline to argue the official’s call, but it was to no avail. Princeton was given possession.‘I probably let my emotions get the best of me in the first half,’ Desko said. ‘We were told to keep it in a number of times. They play a sagging zone defense. You have to be very patient with your offense, especially when they’re jamming the crease.’Just like in its win against Duke last weekend, patience was key for the Orange against Princeton. Syracuse’s offense returned to its ways of making smart passes to hold possession and waiting for an open look. Not making anything easier was the fact that Princeton goaltender Tyler Fiorito came into the game yielding about seven goals per contest. Still, Syracuse had to find a way.That’s where Keogh came in. With just less than two minutes left in the first quarter, White sent Keogh a bounce pass from the right side of the goal. Keogh took the pass right on the edge of the crease, quickly shot it low and snuck it into the back of the net past Fiorito to put the Orange up 3-1.Plays like those are what allowed Syracuse to keep its perfect record intact in yet another close game. Princeton tied up the score at 5-5 in the third quarter, but the Orange still didn’t abandon its game plan of being patient. When given the opportunity, the Tigers held onto the ball. But SU made the right decisions when going to the goal.The Tigers may have tested SU’s patience on offense, but the Orange responded with great poise.‘You do get a little anxious to go out there and take a shot, especially when you have an open opportunity,’ said midfielder Jovan Miller. ‘Such great goaltending makes you think twice about it. I think our patience was key for us today.’Miller thought twice about 30 seconds into the game. The midfielder ran in toward the net and looked like he was about to shoot from 15 yards out. But rather than risk losing possession, he turned and passed off to midfielder Josh Amidon, who took an open shot from 10 yards out to give the Orange an early 1-0 lead. Keogh scored his second goal in the second quarter when Thompson beat three Tiger defenders and sent him an over-the-shoulder pass. Once again, standing just in front of the crease, Keogh took the pass and flipped it right into the goal. Again, patience led to an open look on the doorstep in an open seam.‘They want us to take a bunch of shots from the outside,’ Desko said. ‘You have to be really patient and really work for good shots off the inside.’That’s what Syracuse did to win another close game. It stayed patient and worked for shots. Perhaps most importantly, it found Keogh on the crease.Said Keogh: ‘It’s a good victory for us. We’ll take it.’cjiseman@syr.edu Commentscenter_img Published on April 8, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: cjiseman@syr.edu | @chris_isemanlast_img read more
