Namely, the cooperation between SuperUh and the Vinkovci music documentary festival DORF continues again this year on Iskon’s festival beach in Primošten in the period from August 4 to 6, after which screenings will move to Vinkovci from August 23 to 25. The festival is held under the auspices of the Croatian Audiovisual Center, the City of Vinkovci and Vukovar-Srijem County, and the partners of the festival are Žedno Uho and the Vinkovci City Museum.A total of 8 films will be presented to the audience in Primošten, while the 12th DORF opens with a screening of a 2017 film by a guest from Great Britain, Phil Cox, about the cult funk megastar Betty Davis called “Betty – They Say I’m Different”. German director Christine Franz’s documentary “Bunch of Kunst” from 2017 will have its Croatian premiere, which is a kind of chronicle of the author’s experience during her multi-year tour with the British music duo Sleaford Mods. The third in the series of works “Music is the Art of the Hour” directed by Igor Zupe deals with the most important albums of Slovenian music, while in this sequel he deals with the first album of the Slovenian music group Laibach. “Electric Dreams” is the second Croatian premiere of director Dušan Moravec, a two-time DORF winner. The story, told in the production of RTV Slovenia, tells how “Yugoslav Jean-Michael Jarre” paved the way for many musicians with albums and music until the end of the 70’s.The film “Invisible Hands” by Marina Gioti and Georges Salameh from Greece talks about the project of musician Alan Bishop, bassist and vocalist of the cult Sun City Girls. This poetic documentary about a musical journey to Cairo was screened in 2017 at the Berlinale. One of the most interesting documentaries shown at DORF, was on the program of this year’s festival. It is a film “Spit’n’split” written by Jerome Vanderwattyne.In the accompanying program, the organizers announce the presentation of the exclusive “Secrets of the History of DORF” powered by PechaKucha presentation which was promoted in Zagreb in early June in the Summer Garden Vintage industrial bar as part of 4 warm up programs.

Governor Wolf and Pa. National Guard Senior Leaders Commend Soldiers Headed to the Middle East

first_img Press Release Governor Tom Wolf commended about 900 soldiers with the Pennsylvania National Guard’s 28th Expeditionary Combat Aviation Brigade (ECAB) for their sacrifices as they prepare to deploy to the Middle East in support of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM). The soldiers are based in Lebanon and Cambria counties.In order to protect the health of the soldiers, Gov. Wolf, Maj. Gen. Anthony Carrelli, Pennsylvania’s adjutant general and head of the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, and other senior leaders provided video messages of support for the troops.“When the majority of this state, the country and the world temporarily shut down because of the virus, you continued to serve,” said Gov. Wolf. “You put your families and careers on hold. And now, we are asking you to do just that again. I know in my heart that you will complete this mission with the same level of dedication and commitment that you have demonstrated in previous deployments, domestic operations and your intense training.”“These past few months have been so difficult for these soldiers and their families. While most of the world was under quarantine during the worst of this pandemic, the ECAB was training every day,” said Carrelli. “You all put your nation first and we appreciate your sacrifice and hard work to get the ECAB to this point. We are proud of your service and look forward to your safe return following another successful deployment.”Wolf and Carrelli also addressed the families of the soldiers, saying that they also experience incredible sacrifice when their loved ones are deployed, and that Pennsylvania is here to help families through these challenging times.The ECAB will deploy with 500 soldiers from other states to provide Army air operations, including transport and medivac services in support of CENTCOM. The unit will head to Texas in July before an approximately nine-month tour of duty overseas.“They have endured so much to get ready for this deployment but they are some of the finest, well-trained, resilient, professional soldiers that I have ever experienced in my 37 years as an enlisted soldier and officer,” said Col. Howard Lloyd, ECAB commander.To view the video messages and learn more about this deployment, go to https://www.dvidshub.net/unit/28CAB.Ver esta página en español. Governor Wolf and Pa.

O’Connor savours Sochi triple

first_img Press Association American-born O’Connor, who has an English father a Russian mother and Irish grandparents, finished ninth out of 20 starters after following up a 60.75 score with a 70.25 run second time around at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. The 16-year-old was nevertheless delighted with his efforts, which saw him land his first ever triple on his final jump, after struggling in practice on Saturday morning. Irish snowboarder Seamus O’Connor was “over the moon” despite missing out on a place in the final of the first ever Olympic slopestyle event in Sochi.center_img “I’m over the moon,” he said. “The first run was okay. My practice this morning didn’t go very well. “The sun hadn’t risen so the course was really dark and icy, and I wasn’t landing the tricks that I needed to so coming to the first run I was a little bit anxious. “I put a run down, but it wasn’t really wasn’t what I was looking for. I was happy to put some points on the board. “Two days ago, I tried my first ever triple which didn’t go the way we planned. “Then on my second run here, I tried it again on the last jump and I landed it, which is my first ever landing triple, which is amazing for me. “I couldn’t be happier.” O’Connor’s Olympic experience is not over yet as he will compete in next week’s halfpipe event. last_img read more

Irvine admits interest in Lescott

first_img Press Association West Brom are in negotiations with former England defender Joleon Lescott as new Baggies head coach Alan Irvine looks to secure his first signing in the job. And at his official West Brom unveiling press conference on Wednesday, Irvine said: “T here is an interest in Joleon, without a doubt. “He is a player I know well – I obviously had a number of years with him at Everton. “I’ve had a great working relationship with Joleon in the past. Coincidentally, I saw him towards the end of the season when Manchester City played Everton and I had a chat with him then – of course, I didn’t know any of this was happening at that particular time. “I believe negotiations are going very well at this particular moment. So hopefully we are able to meet Joleon’s demands.” Irvine’s only prior senior management experience came in between his stints as Everton’s assistant boss and academy chief when he was in charge at Preston and then Sheffield Wednesday. The Wednesday job came to an end when he was sacked in early 2011 with the club mid-table in League One and there was considerable surprise when he was named as Pep Mel’s successor at West Brom on Saturday. Some Albion fans have hit out at the appointment and Irvine is hopeful signing Lescott will make an early statement in terms of showing the supporters what he can bring to the table. The 55-year-old Scot, who has signed a 12-month rolling deal at The Hawthorns, said: “Obviously there are a number of issues, but Joleon has said he would be more than happy to work with me again – so if that helps, then fantastic. Centre-back Lescott, 31, is out of contract this summer after five years with Manchester City. He was previously at Everton and worked there with Irvine, who it was confirmed at the weekend was leaving his position on the Toffees’ coaching staff to take over as Albion boss. “The great thing is that you have to know the personality and the character of the players and I know Joleon really well. I have no doubts on that side and I think everyone knows what a good player he is. “He is a great character, a great personality and a terrific professional. The more of those we can have, the better, although I believe there are a number of very good professionals at the club. “I don’t look to bring in one person who will run the dressing room, but the better the characters you bring in, the better the chance you have of having the right mentality.” last_img read more

In-state product continues to make history

first_imgAfter winning eight state championships at Stevens Point Area Senior High School, it was naturally assumed that UW track and cross country star Chris Solinsky would stay close to home to pursue his college career. However, Solinsky wasn’t thinking that way.”I wanted to get as far away from home as possible,” Solinsky said. “I had five schools in mind, Wisconsin being one of them. But I really wanted to get out of this state and see what was out there for me.”After narrowing down his choices to Michigan, Stanford, Oregon, Notre Dame and Wisconsin, Solinsky decided he would take the hour-and-a-half drive south from Stevens Point to check things out.The rest was history, which also happens to be his major.”Things just clicked on my visit here,” Solinsky said. “I kind of knew after my visit here, but I still wanted to keep my options open when I went to the other schools. Meeting the coaches and guys on the team, … it felt a lot like high school.”I felt like I could be comfortable here, so that’s why I came.”Solinsky fit in right away.Two months into his freshman year, he was the top freshman finisher at the NCAA Cross Country Championships, and the second-best UW runner with a 15th place finish. His time was good enough to earn him an All-American honor. But he didn’t stop there. The following spring, Solinsky earned two more All-American honors at the NCAA Indoor meet, finishing 6th in the 3,000 meters and 8th as a member of the distance medley relay team.In one year, he garnered three All-American honors. “It’s pretty unbelievable when you think about it,” Solinsky said.Over the next two and a half years, the senior went on to earn 10 more All-American honors between cross country and track, two of which came just three weeks ago when he took second in the 3,000 meters and won his first 5,000 meters at the NCAA Indoor Championships. In sum, he has three Big Ten titles, four individual NCAA titles and two national championships, one in track and one in cross country.However, Solinsky said he never pays too much attention to all his awards — not even his recent Track Athlete of the Year honor. He just tries to be the best runner he can.”You never think about this kind of stuff when you come in,” Solinsky said. “Each one of those national championships have such a unique feeling. These last three, I went out there to try to establish myself as a great runner. I want everyone I race against to know that if they want to beat me then they have to be a great runner.”Although Solinsky has established himself as a great runner, there is still one race he wished he could have back.After finishing third overall at the 2005 NCAA cross country race, Solinsky was looked to as the obvious favorite the following season in his last collegiate cross country race. But come race day, Solinsky was subpar, finishing fifth on the team and 73rd overall with a time of 32:15, almost three full minutes slower than the year before.”I think that made him hungry,” said UW track and field head coach Ed Nuttycombe. “He was embarrassed, and it made him hungry to get back out there for the track season. Chris is an awful good cross country runner, but he’s just simply better at track.”Solinsky couldn’t agree more with his coach.”I would probably agree with that,” Solinsky said of his revival during track season. “In high school, I was better at cross country. But being a bigger guy out there, it’s easier for me to excel on the track than out on the cross country course.”With only one season left and the NCAA outdoor meet a mere two months away, Solinsky is preparing for whatever comes next in his running career.”I’m going to keep pursuing it as long as I can,” Solinsky said. “I keep telling people that as long as I’m able to run, I’m going to run. This summer is the world championships in Japan, so we’ll see what happens. I know I have it in me — we’ll just have to see what happens.”last_img read more

Program to offer USA Today

first_imgThe Undergraduate Student Government and USA Today  will offer free newspapers for eight weeks to students on campus beginning Monday. This partnership continues USG’s goal to increase readership of national newspapers among the student body.Driven by the success of USG’s partnership with The New York Times, student government leaders reached out to other daily publications in order to offer students a variety of news sources.Newsstands will be located at the Sol Price School of Public Policy, the Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism and Trojan Grounds. The delivery of The New York Times and USA Today will occur only Monday – Friday.Compared to the semester-long New York Times program, the trial period for USA Today will last eight weeks. The trial period will be used to gauge students’ interests in the additional publication, according to Andres Guarnizo, USG’s academic director and a senior majoring in communication.Guarnizo views this new deal as an avenue for students to become more informed from a variety of perspectives.“We want to give them a variety of mediums to access news,” Guarnizo said. “Having a choice is the best thing possible. … It makes a well-rounded individual to be informed of the news.”USA Today approached USG with its collegiate readership program. The goal of the program is to promote civic literacy and global awareness on campus through daily exposure to the news, according to the USA Today website. Each day the publication will give USG 300 newspapers to put on newsstands.Guarnizo believes having print newspapers on campus will make students more inclined to stay informed with local and world events.“Not everyone is willing to seek out news, so when the hard copy is there people will pick it up and maybe read it when eating lunch and then keep it with them throughout the day,” Guarnizo said.USG President Mikey Geragos, a senior majoring in public policy, management and planning, views the program as an example of USG’s commitment to students’ needs.“It’s a program that a lot of other schools did that we were really behind in,” Geragos said.USG is looking into forming connections with The Wall Street Journal and other publications that approach them with a readership program.last_img read more

THE ELIXIR: How a little faith and creativity in the Baylor-style offense have turned programs around

first_imgTo read Part 1 of the Babers Offense Series, click here. To read Part 2, click here. To read part 3, click here. Dino Babers asks for faith. From fans, from players, from alumni. Everywhere he’s gone as a head coach, he’s wanted them to believe without tangible evidence that he is going to be the one to turn their program around.But there is evidence.The Baylor offense has been run at Houston, Baylor, Eastern Illinois, Bowling Green and Tulsa. Each stop the offense has made has elevated the program that runs it. And with the exception of Bowling Green, which had been successful before Babers arrived, the offense has helped turn around each program. In the year prior to running the Baylor-style offense, teams won an average of 36 percent of their games. After, they won an average of 61 percent.“It’s gotta be bought in from the top down, so I think the way we implement it, the way we coach it,” Tulsa head coach and former Baylor offensive coordinator Philip Montgomery said of why the offense is so successful at turning around programs, “And it’s our philosophy of making sure how we’re going to fit the players that we have into what we do so many different times and that’s why everybody’s got their own unique way of spinning it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThere was a time when Babers was the one who needed to have faith, when he was as new to the offense as his players are now — when Art Briles brought him to Baylor in Briles’ first year. Babers picked up the system from Briles at Baylor when he coached wide receivers there from 2008 until 2011. Briles’ staff turned around the program in three seasons.Briles, however, was recently fired at Baylor after allegedly covering up several players sexually assaulting students. According to a review by Philadelphia-based law firm Pepper Hamilton that presented findings of fact to Baylor’s board of regents, “Pepper found specific failings within both the football program and Athletics Department leadership.”,The offense is a vehicle to turn around the on-field product at traditionally poor programs in a tangible form. Most coaches talk about changing the attitude of a program, but the way that’s done is typically much less clear. Through the strength and conditioning program, the players realize what the system requires.Once the prep work is instilled with the strength and conditioning program, Babers has jostled players to get the right fit for the team and player. Although the offense is a defined system, it’s one that allows for creativity with putting players in the right spots.The Baylor-style offense’s total approach is also something that can’t be replicated without getting a full dose of it. That’s one reason why only two other teams — Tulsa and Baylor — are going to truly be running that specific spread this season.“There aren’t many of us out there,” Montgomery said. “… And that’s the way we like it.”When the system started in 1990 at Stephenville, it developed out of the necessity to improve an undersized, less athletic high school team. Players worked out up to three times each day to make up for the physical gap, former Stephenville and Houston lineman Sterling Doty said.Coaches would lift weights with the players and used the weight room to instill confidence in a team that lacked it on the field.When Briles transitioned to Baylor, the weightlifting program turned into a nutrition and strength program. With a strength and conditioning coach, the staff required players to weigh specific pounds when they left the cafeteria, former Baylor wide receiver Andrew Sumpter said.And if you stepped on the scale and didn’t weigh in up to expectations: “Son, that’s not enough, you need to be at 193.”“It seems trivial,” Sumpter said. “But for us to play, to cover, to hydrate correctly, we had to eat right. So everything that (Babers is) bringing in, from the strength and conditioning coaches to the nutritionist, even like, they talked to us about sleep.”,The architecture of the offense was such that it could fit varying skill sets. While it’s developed from the time it won four state championships in 11 years at Stephenville, that principle has remained the same, Montgomery said.From the time Babers was a teenager, he learned the importance of putting players in the right spot. In his sophomore year at Morse (California) High School, Babers’ high school coach John Shacklett wanted Babers to play running back and linebacker.Babers pitched himself as the next quarterback. He and Shacklett had an impassioned talk in the bowels of Morse. Players typically received a trial period under Shacklett for a new position. It almost never worked out. Shacklett saved Babers the trouble and told him where he’d play. Eventually Hawaii recruited Babers at defensive back and running back.At Arizona, as a position coach and offensive coordinator in the late 1990s, Babers showed his own eye for placing players.After Trung Canidate accrued no stats as a freshman wide receiver in 1996, Babers flipped him to running back. Canidate left as the all-time leading rusher in Arizona history and the St. Louis Rams drafted him in the first round of the 2000 NFL draft.Early in his career, Dennis Northcutt toyed around at running back and defensive back. Babers moved him to wide receiver. Northcutt graduated as the all-time leading receiver in 1999 and played in the NFL for 10 seasons.Bobby Wade played running back for part of Arizona’s training camp, but Babers moved him to wide receiver after injuries at the position. The wide receiver topped Northcutt’s receiving yards records in 2002 and played receiver in the NFL for eight seasons.“You know how when you’re growing up and you’re picking teams and you had to know the kids on your street … I always wanted to be a coach,” Babers said. “… You evaluate ‘em, you know what they’re good at, what they’re not good at and to me it didn’t matter who was on the team, you could always put the right guys in the right spots to give yourself the best chance to win.”Several former players from Arizona attribute their NFL careers to position switches Babers made in the late 1990s. As the offensive coordinator at U of A, Babers even created the H-back position within the offense because it was a look teams in the then-Pac-10 didn’t see often.To fill the H-back slot, Babers convinced basketball player Kelvin Eafon to commit to playing just football at Arizona despite the Wildcats’ basketball team being on the verge of a national championship. The young coach told Eafon he could make it to the NFL, so Eafon left the basketball team. Babers also pulled then-defensive end Brandon Manumaleuna to play the H-back role. Manumaleuna went on to have a 10-year NFL career.Babers’ eye for skills fits in with the Baylor-style offense. When teams are rebuilding, they need change. The system provides that.Just this training camp, Babers moved six Syracuse players to different sides of the ball or added a position for them.When Babers first met with his players after he was hired at SU, he told them they would win sooner or later. How soon, he said, depends on whether they buy in.“You know what I will say about all those guys that moved?” Babers said of the players whose positions he switched at Arizona.

“Faith,” he answered, without missing a beat. “Belief without evidence in me that this move would work.”It’s not quite that divine, though. The system was built this way. The system was built to reward faith.Banner illustration by Jessica Sheldon | Photo Editor Comments Published on September 1, 2016 at 12:36 am Contact Chris: cjlibona@syr.edu | @ChrisLibonati,Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.last_img read more
