Virtual museum from Zagreb windows

first_imgThe Zagreb Tourist Board (TZGZ) has launched a campaign “From Zagreb’s windows ” on the Facebook page in the period from April 6 to 19, and invited fellow citizens to send their photos of Zagreb neighborhoods taken from their own balconies, windows and terraces.  The goal of the campaign was to record what Zagreb’s neighborhoods look like when the people of Zagreb “open” the doors of their living rooms.

The first concert from the roof of the tourist bus this year was performed by Damir Urban in Rijeka, and now in the same way the Zagreb Tourist Board is organizing a concert of the Filmmusicorkestar group which will take place tomorrow (April 28.04) starting at 17.00. Filmmusicorkestar concert from the roof of a tourist bus As a result of the completed campaign, TZGZ has created a virtual museum on its LoveZagreb blog, which consists of more than 300 photos from almost all districts of Zagreb. The bus will depart from the Square of the Victims of Fascism, and will pass through the city center, more precisely through the green wave to Svačić Square. Then, after performing some of the greatest hits by Gabi Novak and Arsen Dedić, he will continue his journey to Španski and Mamutica, where he will perform melodies from the films Who Sings Evil Doesn’t Think, Only Kiss Once or Tell Why He Leaves Me. “The response was great and we are glad that, in the two weeks of the campaign, we collected a lot of interesting and beautiful photos. We managed to motivate our fellow citizens to find something beautiful in everything that has happened to us in the past month and a half and to show us their “view” of Zagreb. Equally, we hope that we have encouraged all those who have not yet visited us to include Zagreb on their travel list.”, Say the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb.  From the roof of the tourist bus, a popular double-decker, the concert will be performed by the Filmmusicorkestar group, and the repertoire will include a set of the most beautiful and timeless Zagreb melodies from the movie screen.last_img read more

Make sure your family is prepared for severe weather this season

first_imgMASON CITY — With this being Severe Weather Awareness Week in the state of Iowa, it’s a time that families should sit down and think about the things they should be doing if severe weather goes through the area.Cerro Gordo County Emergency Management Coordinator Steve O’Neil says people need to have an awareness to what is a safe location no matter where they are at.   “You want to make sure your family knows what those locations are. At home, where’s the best place they should go. At school, at work, or if they are out in a vehicle, identifying what is a safe location. In a vehicle, there’s a lot of misnomers of where you should go, such as an underpass. That’s actually one of the worst places to be during a wind storm or a tornado. Low areas like that could flood easily.”O’Neil says if a tornado warning is issued, take shelter in the basement of your home immediately and don’t try to look for the tornado. “The best for everyone is if you have a basement, go to the basement. There’s no particular corner or anything, basically away from the walls, under something sturdy, or if underneath your stairwell is clear. Get to a good secure place in the middle.”O’Neil says if you don’t have a basement, get to the lowest level that you have.  “And put as many walls as you can between you and the outside. If you have an interior bathroom, that’s a great place to go. Inside the tub offers extra protection. If you have a closet that’s internal, that’s another good place. Just even a hallway that you can shut the bedroom doors and other doors and stay in the hallway more toward the center of the house, that’s where you want to be.”If a storm causes major damage to an area, things like phone service may be interrupted for long periods of time. O’Neil says you should figure out a plan that allows all family members to keep in touch to make sure they are safe after a disastrous storm.  He recommends they find a friend or family member that does not live in the area, that way each member can call in and you can do a follow-up later. “If you pick someone in the same community, the chances are they are affected too and you may not have that communication.”Today’s Severe Weather Awareness Week topic is “family preparedness”.
