Tell the world that the “a la Croate” later tie was made by Croats

first_imgTHE ROOT OF THE WORD – it was worn “a la Croate” translated into Croatian The young French King Louis XIV. he began wearing a tie in 1646 when he was only seven years old and thus in some way set the fashion standard of all French nobles. They soon adopted this new garment to be worn a la Croate (‘in the Croatian way’), which also became the new root of the French word cravate. And so somehow the story about the tie began. Ties shown to the world by Croats. Every man in the world will put a tie on himself at least once, and whenever someone receives a pen in his hands, he must remember Croatia. Pens and ties must be our main symbols, at least when we talk about congress tourism, as well as the branding of Croatia. This weekend is World Tie Day (October 18), and I can’t help but get the impression that, despite all the power of this “symbol”, we still haven’t used the fact that the tie is a Croatian product enough. / / / THE BOOK “WHAT ARE CROATS LIKE” IS A MANDATORY READING FOR ALL CURRENT AND FUTURE TOURIST EMPLOYEES Be proud every time you put on a tie, be ambassadors of our tourism and tell the story of how a tie is a Croatian product. Back in 2013, after two years of preparations, Academia Cravatica made one of the most beautiful postcards from Croatia, when they set up a large tie installation around the Arena, the world’s best-preserved Roman amphitheater, which symbolically connected past and future, antiquity and modern civilization. The tie was long 808 meters, and the maximum width of the lower part of the tie is 25 meters. The knot of the tie itself is 15 meters long, 16,5 meters wide in its greatest width, and 5,4 meters wide in its narrowest part, and more than a billion people according to the interpretation of Academia Cravatica was introduced to our story of the tie. How to stand out in a sea full of fish? How do the “small” survive among the big ones? We have something to be proud of, praise and stand out. We have true and credible stories with which we can and must be different. We have The “holy grail” in the world of marketing and branding, not one but hundreds of them.  Shift of the Guard, Association of Historical Troops with a Tie led by the Cravat Regiment / Academia Cravatica Could it be better than branding and associating with one such symbol? Tie = Croatia – the homeland of the tie. But let’s start from the beginning of the story that began as a scarf around the necks of Croatian soldiers, and today is the most widespread fashion detail in the world. God save us from plague, famine, war and Croats Without going deeper into history, but in the 17th century, thanks to many battles won, even against the Swedes, who until then were considered the best warriors in Europe at the time, the Croats became synonymous with light cavalry. Why is this very important, precisely because as warriors at the time who were not ordinary mercenaries or bandits, as evidenced by their neat and carefully adorned uniforms, it was the Croats who stood out with a previously unknown fashion detail in Europe – with a red scarf around his neck tied in a knot. One of the oldest stereotypes about Croats in Europe is that of Croatian belligerence, courage and cruelty. As Božo Skoko writes in his book “What are Croats like? in the 17th century, German and Swedish mothers allegedly threatened their mischievous children “ If you are not good, the Croats will come and take you away”, And that is exactly how the prayer was created centuries later” God save us from plague, famine, war and Croats “. Zrinski defended Europe by stopping the Turks under Siget of Hungary, and even Napoleon himself said of the Croats that he had never had braver and better soldiers. ” If he had only one hundred thousand Croats, he would conquer the whole world”. Croatian inventors are responsible for great discoveries, discoveries that the world must know are from Croatia, especially if we talk in the context of Croatia as a tourist destination and branding the country. Why doesn’t the world know about the connection between Croatia and Tesla, Penkala, Faust Vrančić and others, our innovators who indebted us.  PEN AND TIE – MAIN SYMBOLS What is the image and perception of Croatia in Europe? Are we recognized with something other than the sun and the sea, famous athletes and Dubrovnik? Is that all we can offer and show? CROATIAN GIANTS – TESLA, PENKALA, FAUST VRANČIĆ DO YOU KNOW HOW PETER MIŠKOVIĆ INVENTOR steam bath, AS Tomislav Uzelac invented the first MP3 PLAYER AND THE M-PARKING, AS IVAN VUČETIĆ FATHER dactyloscopy – METHOD Fingerprinting, A MARIN SOLJAČIĆ is the first carried out experiments WIRELESS TRANSMISSION OF ELECTRICITY, WHILE JOSIP BELUŠIĆ INVENTED THE SPEEDOMETER. THE LIST IS MUCH MUCH LONGER. The tie is a symbol of men and the business world. And the fact that every man in the world will put a tie on himself at least once in his life speaks volumes about the strength of the tie as a brand.  ADOBRAN, TORPEDO, TIE, ZEPELIN, ROCKET ENGINE, MARINE COMPASS… Tomorrow is (August 18) World Tie Day. Happy World Tie Day to you. What will make us stand out in the crowd?  However, we can freely expand this story to the question: Why is a pen not our Croatian souvenir? The pen is used by people from all over the world every day, imagine that we have branded it well and whenever someone receives a pen, remember Croatia. Well that’s marketing and branding! Fortunately, awareness of the origin of the tie is proudly promoted by the institution Academia Cravatica, which is also the organizer of the only and first European festival dedicated to the phenomenon of necktie today. Photo: Academia Cravatica Photo: www.duckass.net / Lana’s DuckAss Why doesn’t the world know that Croats are deserving for parachute, torpedo, tie, Dalmatians, airship, rocket engine, ship’s compass… Where are the theme museums, amusement parks… for each of our prominent innovators visited by thousands of tourists? Where are the themed evenings celebrating the achievements of our innovators? This is how the tourist season is extended! Tie, lazo, slips, Krawatte, ネ ク タ イ, 领带, cravate or in Croatian tie is a garment that everyone knows and knows. World brand, right? Cover photo: Academia Cravaticalast_img read more

Amazon will hire 75,000 more workers to meet pandemic demand

first_imgAmazon.com Inc. says it will expand its hiring spree by an additional 75,000 workers as the online retailer shores up its logistics operation to meet demand from people hunkered down at home because of the coronavirus pandemic.Amazon said on Monday that it had already filled 100,000 previously announced temporary and full-time positions. The hiring spree and a temporary $2-an-hour wage boost will likely cost more than $500 million, up from a prior estimate of $350 million, the company said.Online shopping has surged, particularly for staples like toilet paper and groceries, and Amazon and its expansive warehousing and delivery operation have become lifelines for shoppers who can’t venture out in person. Even as some of Amazon’s rival technology giants withdraw earnings guidance or warn about uncertain demand during the pandemic, analysts say Amazon stands to gain from shopping trends brought on by the virus. The company has kept its doors open as state-mandated closures of non-essential businesses shutter specialty physical retail storefronts across the US and Europe.Meanwhile, Amazon is struggling with outbreaks of COVID-19 in its own ranks, with cases at dozens of sites around the US, according to employees and media reports. Some workers say Amazon’s hiring has helped the company fill roles of employees who have stopped coming to work out of fear of contracting or spreading the virus. Amazon says employees can stay home without fear of termination or discipline, and interviews with workers at sites across the country suggest many are not showing up for work.Amazon also says it has rolled out more intense cleaning and hygiene measures at its facilities, including temperature screenings and reorganized break rooms to encourage social distancing. Still, employees are getting sick as the pandemic spreads, and some have raised concerns that Amazon isn’t doing enough to keep them safe. Workers at Amazon warehouses in New York, Michigan and Illinois have staged walkouts demanding the company close their facilities for extended cleaning.The Occupational Health and Safety Administration last week said it was investigating working conditions at an Amazon warehouse in eastern Pennsylvania where at least 21 employees were diagnosed with COVID-19.Topics :last_img read more

Softball: Badgers bouncing back in big way in 2016

first_imgThe 2016 season for the University of Wisconsin softball team started off with a bang, with the Badgers taking down opponents such as the No. 39 California and No. 19 South Florida in February.It was only the first month of the season, but the Badgers were already oozing with confidence.At that point, after a disappointing 21-31 campaign in 2015, it was clear the Badgers were taking names, big and small, across the country and showed no signs of stopping. They were in store for a bounce-back season.Even though most of their games consisted of tournament play for the first few weeks, the Badgers continued carrying the momentum they had begun to build when they started playing a more traditional schedule.Their biggest tests, however, wouldn’t come for a while —  they would finally see how they matched up against the Big Ten Conference. The Badgers would play 26 games before they saw another Big Ten team in action.Their first Big Ten team was Michigan State University, who the Badgers defeated 2-1 in the series. Momentum continued for the team, and they started to find themselves in the position to take on highly-ranked teams within their own conference.This was all in head coach Yvette Healy’s mind when she started the season.“Every year we talk about ‘How can you have a good Big Ten season?’” Healy said. “You try to say ‘try to get a win against everybody’ and when you’re really good you try to sweep a couple of teams.”Healy got her wish — Wisconsin has acquired wins from every Big Ten team they have met this season.Perhaps one of their biggest wins came when Wisconsin stumped Minnesota at home. Minnesota, which is currently ranked No. 21 nationally, is a tough opponent to beat.With wins against Minnesota and University of Illinois, it is clear this underdog team is capable of taking on anyone. While their national ranking of No. 69 might not show their true potential, it is clear this is a team on the rise in the Big Ten.“It doesn’t matter what team we face, we can take on anybody,” sophomore infielder Sam Arnets said. “No matter their numbers, no matter how good of pitching they have, we can take them on.”Arnets believes inexperience was one of the major downfalls of last year’s struggling team, which was comprised mostly of underclassmen.Softball: Freshman standout continues to make strides in debut seasonThe University of Wisconsin softball team won 21 games last season and at the time, Melanie Cross was playing softball Read…“Coach Healy talks about experience and being there,” Arnets said. “I think that last year was really hard because we were a really young team and we didn’t have that [Big Ten] experience. We struggled early on.”Above all, perhaps the most impressive milestone the Badgers reached this season was a win against Northwestern in their final home series of the season, which gave UW 10 Big Ten wins on the season.Healy believes for a team like this, one of the more telling marks of achievement in a season is reaching double-digit wins in a conference like the Big Ten.“Trying to get to 10 Big Ten wins is a big benchmark, so any season that you can put up double digit wins in the Big Ten you’re a quality program,” Healy said. “In the scope of the 20 years of the program, it doesn’t happen that often, so I think that it’s a special day.”Softball: Badgers take one of three against Northwestern in final outing at GoodmanThe University of Wisconsin women’s softball team had a fairly momentous weekend, taking on the Northwestern Wildcats in their last Read…The Badgers aren’t looking to settle at 10 wins, with one final series before the Big Ten Tournament against Nebraska where they can build on an already-successful season.last_img read more
