The Museum of Illusion conquers America, and soon the whole world, through a franchise model

first_imgLast year, after Zagreb and Zadar, the Museum of Illusion expanded to Ljubljana and Vienna through a franchise model. Thus “modestly” began the story of the expansion of the Museum of Illusion through a franchise model outside the borders of our beautiful country.After the last conversation with Rok Zivkovic from the Museum of Illusion, which took place a little over a year ago, pointed out that there are already concrete interests from other European countries, and he dreamed that the long-term goal would be to offer this attractive and successful model worldwide. Brave, ingenious and phenomenal, I was dizzy, a real entrepreneur who believes in his product and vision, and most importantly has a proven and attractive successful business model, which he developed in Croatia and confirmed through the expansion to Slovenia and Austria.”We saw that there was room for expansion, and we chose the franchise model as the most acceptable to us. Through the franchise in cooperation with the partner, we offer him help through all phases, from the first contact, the book of standards, employee education, all the way to the opening and later through the entire development process. It’s been a process for a year. Also, the Museum has additional income through souvenirs and didactic toys for which we are also distributors.. “Said Zivkovic a year ago.Today, after only a year, the Museum of Illusion through its franchise model has opened its first Museum in New York, and will soon open in Kansas City as well! In what words to describe this phenomenal news. Undescribable!On the news that the Museum of Illusions has opened in New York, I immediately go to the official website of the Museum of Illusions, where an even bigger positive shock follows. The one when you fall off the chair!In the meantime, in the space of a year, the Museum of Illusion, in addition to Zagreb, Zadar, Ljubljana and Vienna, has spread all over the world! Today, the Museum of Illusions is present in Muscat / Oman, Belgrade / Serbia, Kuala Lumpur / Malaysia, Dubai / UAE, Athens / Greece and in Berlin / Germany.But there is no end to the enthusiasm because soon the Museum of Illusions will literally conquer the whole world! Thus, the opening of this successful Croatian story was announced soon in Kansas City in America, Hamburg and Stuttgart in Germany, Toronto in Canada, Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, Doha in Qatar, Amsterdam in the Netherlands and Tbilisi in Georgia.This is news for all headlines in all media! The news of a brave vision and success on the global scene, through the franchise model that started in Croatia. Something similar was achieved through the franchise model by Andrija Čolak with his Surf’n’Fries, which is expanding all over the world from month to month.”If you can dream it, you can do it. ” said Walt Disney, and Živković and Čolak are real proof that one should dream awake and that everything is possible, of course with a lot of effort, sacrifice and self-belief. A floor-length hat and my deep bow. Wake up to dream.See more about the conditions of the Museum of Illusion franchise in the attachment:WANT TO START YOUR OWN MUSEUM OF ILLUSIONS?

‘Funding crisis’ in brain research

first_imgScientists fear the cost of getting drugs to the market place is holding back brain researchScientists say research into mental illnesses such as depression is facing a funding crisis.They warn that new treatments will be delayed and that the next generation of neuroscience researchers will not be trained.A report by the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology said private companies were pulling out due to the challenge of bringing drugs to market.It called for more investment and changes to the way trials take place.The report was the result of a summit of more than 60 representatives of governments, universities, the pharmaceutical industry and patient groups.Higher failure rateIt said up to 80% of funding for brain research in Europe had traditionally come from the private sector. However, pharmaceutical companies were retreating from the field because of the cost of bringing drugs as far as the consumer.The report said it took much longer to develop drugs for mental illness – 13 years on average. Those drugs had a higher failure rate and were harder to get licensed for use, it said.Only one new anti-depressant has been approved in Europe, agomelatine, in the past 10 years.Professor Guy Goodwin, from the University of Oxford, said a lack of funding could lead to a “generational crisis” in neuroscience research and training.He said there should be more public money invested in brain research: “The cost and burden are really quite high, yet research attracts disproportionately low investment.“Public investment in research should be somehow related to the burden of the disease.”The report suggested ways of encouraging more people to invest, such as increasing the patent length for psychiatric drugs – making them more profitable.A European “medicines chest” was also suggested. Pharmaceutical companies would donate drugs they were no longer using for research, which could then be used by other organisations.The report suggested that drugs discarded for treating Alzheimer’s disease, for example, could be used in research for psychiatric disorders.Professor David Nutt, of Imperial College London, described the current situation as “madness”.He said: “With Europe’s extraordinary tradition in neuroscience innovation relying so heavily on private-sector investment, the consequences for the region’s research base and public-health agenda are of major concern.”BBC News 14 Views   no discussions Share Share HealthLifestyle ‘Funding crisis’ in brain research by: – June 14, 2011center_img Tweet Sharing is caring!

Italians Over 80 ‘Will Be Left to Die’ as Country Overwhelmed by Coronavirus

first_img Share Share Tweet 192 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! CoronavirusInternationalLifestyleNews Italians Over 80 ‘Will Be Left to Die’ as Country Overwhelmed by Coronavirus by: – March 16, 2020center_img Share (Guardian UK) Coronavirus victims in Italy will be denied access to intensive care if they are aged 80 or more or in poor health should pressure on beds increase, a document prepared by a crisis management unit in Turin proposes. Medical staff walk out of a tent at one of the emergency structures that were set up to ease procedures at the Brescia hospital, northern Italy CREDIT: Luca Bruno/AP Some patients denied intensive care will in effect be left to die, doctors fear.The unit has drawn up a protocol, seen by The Telegraph, that will determine which patients receive treatment in intensive care and which do not if there are insufficient spaces. Intensive care capacity is running short in Italy as the coronavirus continues to spread.The document, produced by the civil protection deparment of the Piedmont region, one of those hardest hit, says: “The criteria for access to intensive therapy in cases of emergency must include age of less than 80 or a score on the Charlson comorbidity Index [which indicates how many other medical conditions the patient has] of less than 5.”The ability of the patient to recover from resuscitation will also be considered.One doctor said: “[Who lives and who dies] is decided by age and by the [patient’s] health conditions. This is how it is in a war.”The document says: “The growth of the current epidemic makes it likely that a point of imbalance between the clinical needs of patients with COVID-19 and the effective availability of intensive resources will be reached.“Should it become impossible to provide all patients with intensive care services, it will be necessary to apply criteria for access to intensive treatment, which depends on the limited resources available.”It adds: “The criteria set out guidelines if the situation becomes of such an exceptional nature as to make the therapeutic choices on the individual case dependent on the availability of resources, forcing [hospitals] to focus on those cases in which the cost/benefit ratio is more favorable for clinical treatment.”Luigi Icardi, a councilor for health in Piedmont, said: “I never wanted to see such a moment. It [the document] will be binding and will establish in the event of saturation of the wards a precedence code for access to intensive care, based on certain parameters such as potential survival.”The document is already complete and only approval from a technical-scientific committee is needed before it is sent to hospitals. The criteria are expected to apply throughout Italy, government sources said.Approximately 1,809 people in Italy have now died from the virus and the number is growing every day. More than 15,000 are infected.*Italy has 5,090 intensive care beds, which for the moment exceeds the number of patients who need them. It is also working to create new bed capacity in private clinics, nursing homes and even in tents. However, the country also needs also doctors and nurses – the government wants to hire them – and equipment.Lombardy remains the most critical region. However, the situation is also serious in neighboring Piedmont. Here, in just one day, 180 new cases were recorded, while deaths numbered 27. The trend suggests that the situation is not about to improve.Roberto Testi, president of the coranavirus technical-scientific committee for Piedmont, told The Telegraph: “Here in Piedmont we aim to delay as long as possible the use of these criteria. At the moment there are still intensive care places available and we are working to create more.“We want to arrive as late as possible at the point where we have to decide who lives and who dies. The criteria relate only to access to intensive care – those who do not get access to intensive care will still receive all the treatment possible. In medicine we sometimes have to make difficult choices but it’s important to have a system about how to make them.”*Aljazeeralast_img read more

Hetmeyer says match-winning hundred meant a lot

first_imgGUYANESE power hitter Shimron Hetmeyer said his match-winning ton against cricket powerhouse India on Sunday had special meaning.Hetmeyer smashed 11 fours and seven sixes in his knock of 139 that was made off just 106 balls and shared in a second-wicket stand of 218 with Shai Hope, who remained unbeaten on 102, as the West Indies successfully chased down an imposing 287 for 8 set by India.The West Indies reached their target with 13 balls to spare to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Sunday’s hundred was only his second this year. On February, he scored 104 against England in Bridgetown, Barbados. Since then he has had a run of low scores with the exception of scores of 50 and 54 against Bangladesh and New Zealand on June 17 and 22, respectively.Sunday’s hundred represented a return to form for the talented player who is known to lose his wicket playing risky and sometimes reckless shots.“This hundred means a lot because the last one I had was at the start of the year,” he said. “Now it’s a matter of being consistent next year. I just backed myself and tried to execute my plans. It’s always nice to have a smile on your face after a victory. The last time I was here, I got a hundred and we lost that game.”Keiron Pollard, the team’s captain said he did not lose faith in the player despite his lean run of form. “Hetmyer has come under a lot of criticism, but it’s about understanding his role and responsibility. As a management group, we have faith in him,” Pollard said.Hetmeyer also came in for praise from Indian captain Virat Kohli.“They played very smartly on a slow pitch. We thought six bowling options will be good enough, especially with the pitch being slow and Kedar as an option. But it played differently under lights. I think they batted really well, you can’t take that out of the equation. But I think the ball wasn’t holding enough for the fast bowlers. Hetmyer was outstanding and Shai as well.(Sportsmax)last_img read more

Smith, Syracuse look to control tempo against No. 2 Florida State

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 13, 2013 at 3:03 am Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesse Syracuse started off its 20-3 win over Maryland with its longest touchdown drive of the season.From its own 20-yard line, the Orange took 7:54 and methodically marched down the field. Sixteen plays and 80 yards. Jerome Smith carried the ball eight times on the drive and punctuated it with his 1-yard plunge into the end zone. “Everybody was comfortable,” Smith said, “the running game settled everybody in early.”Much like it did against Maryland, Syracuse (5-4, 3-2 Atlantic Coast) will look to dictate the tempo against No. 2 Florida State (9-0, 7-0) on Saturday. Facing the Seminoles’ high-octane passing attack, SU’s offense will look to eat clock and keep Jameis Winston and Co. off the field.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd Smith will be at the forefront of that effort. “We pride ourselves in being able to run the ball and keep teams with good offenses off the field,” SU center Macky MacPherson said. “Jerome’s a big part of it. He’s a big piece of it and he’s our star for a reason.”Smith ran the ball a season-high 28 times against Maryland, one carry less than his career-high 29 against West Virginia in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl last season. On Saturday, the junior accumulated 118 yards and ran for both of SU’s two touchdowns, and helped set the tone for a physical game. Fellow running back Prince-Tyson Gulley left in the first quarter with an ankle injury, which led to Smith’s increased workload. Gulley will play on Saturday, but running backs coach DeAndre Smith said he’s not opposed to running Smith at a similar rate. “It’s the first time he’s carried that much this year and he handled it really well,” DeAndre Smith said. “If we need him to carry it 30 times, I’ll let him carry it 30 times.”It’s a prospect that Jerome Smith certainly isn’t opposed to. “That was fun,” Smith said with a large grin on his face. “I enjoyed it a lot more than getting it maybe 16 times, but whatever’s in the game plan is good for us.”On the season, Syracuse’s opponents possess the ball for 31:11 per game, while SU averages 28:49. But the Orange out-possessed the Terrapins on Saturday and Wake Forest in its previous ACC win. FSU scores 52 points per game — the second most in the country — yet has possessed the ball for 279 minutes, the 39th most in the country. Still, in the Seminoles’ closest win of the season against Boston College, it possessed the ball for nearly 27 minutes, four minutes below its season average. BC nearly upset FSU in a 48-34 loss, and had the ball for more than 33 minutes. But in its largest win of the season — a 63-0 trouncing of then-No. 25 Maryland on Oct. 5 — the Seminoles’ time of possession exceeded 34 minutes. Coddling the football has been the lone antidote to FSU’s unyielding attack. On Saturday, Syracuse’s offensive approach will be as much about limiting damage as scoring points. “When teams have a really good offense you want to keep them off the field,” Smith said. “When you want to eat the clock up, you definitely run the ball.”Smith’s success against Maryland will in all likelihood translate to a similar game plan against FSU. But looking past the Seminoles, it’s a script the Orange could follow for the rest of the season. Inflated wins against Wagner and Tulane could have created the mirage that Syracuse can excel through the air. But an up-and-down conference showing thus far has placed the spotlight back on the steady run game. Heading into the weekend, SU is one win away from bowl eligibility and, starting with the Seminoles, will get back to its roots to make the push toward six wins. “After 10 games or weeks you can kind of see that’s our identity,” DeAndre Smith said. “We can run the ball and be physical, and when we’ve played well that’s what we’ve done.” Commentslast_img read more
