One of the world’s best bloggers for luxury tourism is staying in Istria

first_imgIt is interesting that Naomi-Jane Adams always mentions that this is a paid promotional campaign, both in the description and in the hashtag, while this is a rarity in Croatia, as well as on the global scene. But after the global debacle and fraud with Fyre Festival (be sure to watch the documentary) last year, where the top influencers were one of the main media and ambassadors of the campaign, and who did not emphasize that it is a paid campaign, the topic was updated, and more and more bloggers and influencers are emphasized when it’s about paid campaigns. And such is the rule according to our laws, where it should be clearly emphasized when it comes to a paid campaign. On that occasion, he resides in Istria, Naomi-Jane Adams, ( Instagram @bookonin /  www.bookonin.co.uk) fashion influencer and blogger specializing in luxury travel who was awarded at the World Bloggers Award held on May 24 in Cannes during the famous film festival, as the world’s best blogger in the luxury travel category. Behind Naomi-Jane Adams stands many years of experience and knowledge about luxury tourism and travel. Before moving to London and starting to build a personal brand on social platforms, she lived on the England-Greece route and edited web content for travel companies. In mid-2017, she decided to dedicate her energy and knowledge to travel. As part of this year’s Share Istria project, a total of 16 bloggers / Influencers are staying in Istria, with a total of over 29 million followers, with an estimated reach of 389 million people. After four extremely successful editions of the destination marketing campaign Share Istria, the Tourist Board of Istria has launched the fifth jubilee edition of the project, which is currently underway and lasts until June 15.  As this year TZ Istra launched a new website, whose main focus is no longer on b2b information, but exclusively on users / tourists and the sale of experiences and stories, this year’s campaign could prove to be the most effective so far. Last year’s results clearly and measurably show that the Share Istria project is rightly the most important destination campaign in Istria. Last year alone, the Share Istria campaign achieved over 4 million interactions, with a total of 26 influencers reaching a reach of 389 million people, which is expected this year as well, but with fewer influencers. The website www.istra.hr has long been positioned as the main online destination platform for Istrian tourism. And concrete figures speak for themselves. Thus, in 2018, the website was visited by 1.251.852 (2% more than in the previous year) uniqe users, with a total of 1.929.724 sessions and 6.411.742 page views. Share Istria is the most important destination campaign in Istria Today, she explores exciting and exotic destinations and creates content for their social networks, often in collaboration with tourist circles. This year, she launched an educational Content Creation Retreat in Bali in which she teaches attendees about creating tourist content for digital channels. This year the number of weeks has been reduced, and the reason for that is because it is difficult to continuously follow a group of different people with different interests from morning to evening. For this reason, as they point out from the Tourist Board of Istria, ‘recruited’ are stronger players who have more than a million followers. The main partners of this year’s edition are Turkish Airlines and Porsche Istra, and in addition to them, more than 200 different entities are engaged (hotel houses, small family hotels, travel, tourist and DMC agencies, caterers, winemakers, olive growers, truffle growers, prosciutto makers, etc.). then museums and cultural institutions, etc.) and each of them has its share in this important campaign of Istria. The realization of the project itself, ie when influencers come to Istria, figuratively speaking, is the easiest part of the job, although no segment in this project is simple, easy or predictable. Almost half of the team of the Istrian Tourist Board has been involved in creating the entire program for five months, and the most important process in this project is definitely the “headhunting” of the best influencers targeted for Istria as well as control and interpretation of the final story.  Find out more about the new website of the Istria Tourist Board in the attachment.last_img read more

Cricket News MS Dhoni’s ‘golden failure’ puts India in a spot of bother in Nagpur ODI

first_imgMS Dhoni was dismissed for a golden duck for the fifth time.This was the second time he was dismissed for a golden duck against Australia.MS Dhoni averaged over 100 in ODIs in Nagpur. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights The golden duck dismissal for Dhoni was the fifth time that he had suffered this fate in ODIs. His very first instance was on debut against Bangladesh in 2004 at Dhaka when he was run-out with his first ball in international cricket. He has been dismissed for a golden duck twice against Sri Lanka with the first instance coming in 2005 in the Ahmedabad ODI. His next instance came in the 2007 World Cup encounter at Port of Spain in which India lost to Sri Lanka to get eliminated from the tournament. His fourth instance came in 2010 against Australia in then second ODI in Vizag. In the three-match series in which the first and third ODIs were washed away due to rain, India got one over Australia in the Vizag ODI. Although Dhoni fell for a golden duck, Kohli scored a century as India secured an ODI series win against Australia at home for the first time in 23 years. Although Dhoni may have fallen cheaply, India still have depth in Ravindra Jadeja and with Kohli on course for a big score, Australia still have an uphill task to restrict India to a total under 250 on a wicket that is assisting the spinners. India are currently leading the five-match series 1-0 after winning the Hyderabad ODI by six wickets.   New Delhi: Before the start of the second ODI against Australia at the VCA stadium in Jamtha, all eyes were on MS Dhoni and his impressive record at the venue and in the last couple of months. Dhoni has an average of over 130 at the VCA stadium and his first century in ODIs against Australia came at this venue in 2009. In the last couple of months, the cricketing world has seen a resurgence in Dhoni’s finishing prowess and his consistency in accumulating runs in the death overs. Heading into the Nagpur ODI, Dhoni had scores of 51,55*,87*,48*,1,59*. His three unbeaten have come when India has been chasing and they have managed to overhaul the target successfully. In the Nagpur ODI, Virat Kohli’s magnificent 50th fifty had put India on course for a good score but Australia chipped away with wickets at regular intervals and the former India skipper came to bat in the 33rd over after Kedar Jadhav was dismissed by legspinner Adam Zampa for 11. However, in the first ball he faced, Dhoni played back to a quicker delivery that skidded through and he looked to steer it to third man but the outside edge was taken by Usman Khawaja resulted in Dhoni being dismissed for a golden duck. The silence and the shock of the crowd in Jamtha spoke about how rare this failure has come for Dhoni at a time when he is enjoying a good run. last_img read more

Trojan offense brimming with explosive playmakers

first_imgUSC’s group of offensive skill players this season boasts a mix of returning talent and exciting young recruits expected to light up the field in 2013. With several capable recruits joining a field of returning players, USC should be able to spread out the ball more this year. This surplus of talent will take some of the burden off whomever the Trojans end up settling with at quarterback.Ready for action · USC sophomore wide receiver Nelson Agholor (15) is primed for a breakout 2013 season after turning heads as a freshman. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanRunning BackThe team’s biggest strength appears to be in its backfield. Leading the charge for the running game is senior tailback Silas Redd. The highly touted former Penn State tailback amassed 905 yards rushing and nine touchdowns in his first campaign with the Trojans, and is looking to improve upon his efforts from last year.“I want to stay healthy for the whole season,” Redd said. “A thousand yards, no fumbles, no missed assignments. I’m never one to complain about carries, but I definitely want over a thousand yards.”Redd battled numerous injuries last season and required knee surgery in the offseason, which limited him in the summer and will force him to miss the season opener against Hawai’i. He had three carries or fewer in three games last season, and with departed running back Curtis McNeal battling injuries as well, the Trojans were left with a shortage of healthy scholarship running backs.That should not be the case in 2013. USC is fortunate to have a deep stable of backs that will allow Kiffin to disperse carries as he sees fit and provide security should any player be injured.Though Redd expects to be the primary ball carrier again this season, he will almost certainly be sharing carries with freshman tailback Justin Davis, who has surprised teammates and coaches with his physicality, quickness and natural instincts as a runner.Davis’ strength is surprising considering he’s a true freshman. His north-south running ability invites contact, and Davis will oftentimes match or surpass the brutal strength of his defenders en route to yards after contact.The Trojans’ deep stable of tailbacks will be rounded out by freshman Ty Isaac and redshirt sophomores Javorius “Buck” Allen and Tre Madden.Madden, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, is a particularly noteworthy addition to the backfield. As a true freshman in 2011, he appeared in all 12 games as a linebacker and on special teams. He switched to tailback the following spring and drew rave reviews in his first few days at the position, but suffered a knee injury shortly thereafter. With his addition, USC should have one of the most talented backfields in the conference.“Our depth is finally back,” Kiffin said. “We have to produce on the field, but when you look at that position, you think, ‘Wow, that looks like a USC running back group.’ Some are inexperienced, but it’ll be exciting to see that group develop because that has been a goal of ours, to get that group back. I feel like we’ve got it back now.”Joining the bevy of tailbacks are redshirt sophomore fullback Soma Vainuku and sophomore fullback Jahleel Pinner, who both showed their inexperience at times last year.“The play of the fullback had a lot to do with issues last year, as we go back and look at the tape,” Kiffin said. “That had a lot to do with some of the short-yardage issues, too.”Vainuku started last year but has been limited during fall camp, giving Pinner a chance to shine.Kiffin may be intrigued by Pinner’s ability to catch the ball out of the backfield — especially after Vainuku failed to reel in a crucial fourth-down pass on the goal line in the waning moments of last year’s loss against Notre Dame.“[Pinner] has done great,” Kiffin said. “You go through growing pains when you play guys earlier than they normally would. We went through that last year with him, and now he’s really coming along and is much improved.”Wide ReceiversEven with the departure of Robert Woods to the NFL, USC’s receiving corps looked to be one of the deepest in the nation coming into the spring — but injuries have taken their toll in the offseason and thinned the group out considerably.Oft-injured junior George Farmer was lost for the season when he tore his ACL in the spring, and freshman Steven Mitchell, who was considered an early favorite to start at slot receiver, succumbed to the same devastating injury during a voluntary summer workout.Of course, having a Heisman Trophy contender in junior Marqise Lee, last year’s Biletnikoff Award recipient, helps offset those losses.“I’ve made this statement before; he’s gonna leave here as the best [receiver] to ever play here,” Kiffin said, echoing his declaration from last September. “You can see the talent and the drive that he has … As a coach, you see that and realize how unusual that is.”Sophomore Nelson Agholor seems poised to have a breakout season in 2013 alongside Lee after shining in the offseason.“I really believe Nelson could have done similar things to what Marqise did his freshman year and Robert did his freshman year,” Kiffin said. “If he had been our No. 2 receiver [last season], I think he would have had the same type of numbers.”Upstart freshman Darreus Rogers has set himself apart from junior Victor Blackwell and redshirt senior De’Von Flournoy for the No. 3 receiver spot with his performance in fall camp.“He’s kind of made a significant play every day in practice,” Kiffin said. “We’re really excited about how he looks out there.”Blackwell will likely still see playing time as one of the team’s few healthy wideouts, while Flournoy’s status is more uncertain, as he’s been in and out of practice since the spring with various minor injuries.Tight EndsAdding to the plethora of receiving targets is the Trojans’ talented group of tight ends. Though there are only three scholarship tight ends on the roster, each of them has the ability to be a major weapon.The two front-line players are redshirt juniors Randall Telfer and Xavier Grimble. Listed as co-starters for the third consecutive year, each is a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses, listed as 6-foot-4 and 6-foot-5, respectively, and 250 lbs. each. The duo has combined for 18 touchdowns over the past two seasons, and figure to be an integral part of the team’s passing attack in 2013.Joining Telfer and Grimble is sophomore Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick. Physically imposing at 6-foot-5 255 lbs., Cope-Fitzpatrick looks the part of a star tight end. Though he caught just two passes for 12 yards in 2012, and is playing behind two NFL prospects, he is expected to have an expanded role with few healthy scholarship receivers on hand.“Those numbers are abnormally low, with five scholarship receivers and three scholarship tight ends,” Kiffin said. “We’re just going to have to do our best and make sure those guys can help us in different ways and in different roles.” Follow Euno Lee on Twitter @eunowhatlast_img read more
