The show was watched by over 300 million viewers, and through Chinese social media, the show is expected to be seen by up to a billion viewers. In mid-October last year, a large expedition of journalists, actors, producers and other supporting staff of one of the most famous and influential Chinese shows “Day Day Up” arrived in Croatia to record a show about Croatia.The show was recently broadcast on Hunan TV, and the Chinese estimate that it was watched by an incredible 300 million people, while viewership on all platforms will reach even more viewers. The show, according to Chinese media, affects public opinion, and especially where the Chinese will travel and which country they will choose for their vacation, writes Free Dalmatia.They filmed like that in Zagreb, Dubrovnik, they tasted our specialties. Croatia, among others, was represented by Ana Rucner, Maksim Mrvica, Miroslav Ćiro Blažević, Jelena Rozga, Folklore Ensemble “Linđo”… Famous Chinese leaders and actors learned to dance local traditional dances, listened to our music, and the show was designed as an order education, dir church and the order of entertainment.By the way, the entire support for the production of this show was in charge of the company Baludiči film, which has already made numerous tourist films and reports, such as Dubronik & Time which has won more than 14 international awards as the best tourist film and are the organizers of the Zagreb TourFilm festival.It can already be said that this is the biggest advertisement of our tourism since independence, which will certainly start a new big “wave” of tourists from China.Related news:TOURIST FILM SITIA – SO HARD TO SAY GOODBYE!

7 ways in which Moto G4 & G4 Plus are different from other Motos

first_imgMotorola recently launched the Moto G4 Plus and the Moto G4 phones in India. We reviewed the Moto G4 Plus. This is a mighty good phone, as we noted in our review, but it is also fairly clear to see that this is a very different Moto phone. It is not like the Motos that consumers know from the last three years. It looks different and it feels different.It also marks a shift in the business strategy of Motorola, nay Lenovo. The contours of this business strategy aren’t yet visible but as more Moto devices come in the next few months, it will give a better idea where Lenovo is going with the Moto.So what exactly are the difference? And what do they mean for consumers?The Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus are big phones with 5.5-inch screen. The focus is clearly more on the usability aspect of the phone — bigger screen, more content, more fun — rather than on making the phone look and fit great in hands. While a lot of consumers will love the big screen, many will also bemoan the loss of the perfect-sized phone that the Moto G3 was.The Moto G4 Plus has the best camera ever put in a Moto phone. Never before there was so much emphasis on camera features in a Moto phone. This is great for consumers.The pebble-like design with curve is gone. That design defined the Moto phones. The Moto G4 and G4 Plus sport more regular and boring looks.In a first for Moto phone in a long long time, the Moto G4 and the G4 Plus lack the water-repellent coating that gave Moto phones some protection against water splashes.Earlier Moto phones would be sold exclusively on Flipkart. But that partnership between Motorola and Flipkart is over. The result? The Moto G4 Plus is sold on Amazon and it doesn’t come with the Flipkart app pre-installed on it. Now, that is unique. In fact, you can say that the Moto G4 Plus has the “purest” Android ever put in a phone.The Moto G4 Plus is the first Moto phone to come with a fingerprint scanner. It is also a very fast fingerprint scanner. The design is not that great as consumers will confuse it with the home button.The Moto G4 Plus and the Moto G4 are the first phones that don’t come in a box with Motorola brand on it. Instead they come in a Moto and Lenovo-branded box.Also read: Moto G4 Plus review: Two steps forward, one step backadvertisementlast_img read more

2020 Range Rover Evoque brings topnotch style to Chicago

This compact SUV carries more Range Rover DNA than ever before, which is obvious from even the quickest of glances. It’s a huge shift from the last-generation Evoque, which had a more unique look.The Evoque appears to get a lot of its inspiration from the shapely Range Rover Velar. Up front, the headlights are as thin as the Velar’s, a growing trend not just at Land Rover. The rear end, though, carries the greatest resemblance, offering more of a coupelike look than before. While many cars physically expand in a new generation, the Evoque is just about the same size as it was before, although the wheelbase is a bit longer, improving legroom and cargo capacity.Enlarge ImageThere’s a lot of Velar influence in the new Evoque. Andrew Krok/Roadshow Its interior has been thoroughly reworked, again begging comparison to Range Rover’s more expensive vehicles. If you like storing junk in the car — and who doesn’t, really — the door panels can now accommodate 1.5-liter water bottles, and there’s a clever little tray behind the climate controls to hide more stuff.Two different engines are on offer. Cars with the P250 designation rock a 2.0-liter gas I4 that’s good for 246 horsepower. If that’s not enough, opt for one of the P300 vehicles, as that brings a 48-volt mild hybrid system into the equation, also boosting the net output to 296 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard.There is a bunch of available tech in this thing, too. Cameras can be used to make the hood “invisible,” showing the driver what’s immediately under the car’s front end. The rearview mirror can switch between a traditional mirror and a camera-based view of the area behind the car. Other optional equipment includes Jaguar Land Rover’s InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, which packs two 10-inch touchscreens on the center console and a 12.3-inch screen in place of the gauge cluster. There are six USB ports scattered around the cabin, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is available.The 2020 Range Rover Evoque goes on sale this spring. It’ll start at $42,650, and nonhybrid models stretch up to $56,850 for the limited First Edition trim. On the mild hybrid side, prices range from $46,600 to $55,800. reading • 2020 Range Rover Evoque brings top-notch style to Chicago 32 Photos Post a comment Feb 8 • Ram’s Multifunction Tailgate can open like French doors 2020 Range Rover Evoque brings new mild hybrid tech Share your voice Chicago Auto Show 2019 Chicago Auto Show 2019 Land Rover Feb 8 • Ram’s Multifunction Tailgate adds a 60-40 split Land Rover Jaguarlast_img read more

10 more quota reformists freed from jail

first_img.Ten leaders and activists of the movement for quota reform, all accused in cases filed with Shahbagh police station, were released from jail on Tuesday, continuing the easing of the government’s hardline stance against dissenters, reports UNB.Those released were accused in various cases over vandalism, assaulting and preventing police from discharging their duties.Six of the released students, who were vocal under the banner of the Bangladesh General Students’ Right Protection Council, are its convener Hasan Al Mamun, joint convener Mojammel Niazi, members Faruk Hossain, Rashed Khan, Moshiur Rahman, and Atikur Rahman, of Dhaka University; Jashim Uddin and Shakhawat of Gazipur National University; and Masud Sardar and Sohel Islam of Rajshahi University and Chittagong University respectively.They were released from Dhaka central jail around12:00pm, said Mahbubur Rahman, jailer of the central jail.Earlier on Monday, separate courts granted bail to 32 university students, including now released Rashed Khan, who were accused in separate cases filed over violence during the back-to-back student movements demanding quota reform and safe roads.The government has in principle agreed with both groups’ demands and advanced legislation towards one.last_img read more

Black Florida Teen Fights Back After SAT Cheating Accusation

first_imgBy the Associated PressMIAMI (AP) — An African-American teen in Florida is fighting back after being accused of cheating on the SAT.Kamilah Campbell improved her score by 330 points when she took it again in October. The 18-year-old says she spent hours studying so she could get into Florida State University. But a representative from the standardized test said her score is under review and that she likely had prior knowledge of the test.(Courtesy Image/Logo)Attorney Benjamin Crump is taking Campbell’s case pro bono. The Miami Herald reports he sent a letter to the score validation company demanding that her scores be released or it could constitute a civil rights violation.Campbell sent the board a photo of the book she studied with and letters from a teacher and study partner.A College Board spokesman said scores are only cancelled if there is substantial evidence beyond the test score.last_img read more

Mineral in lunar meteorite suggests water was once on the moon

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Water on the moon, some have suggested, would be valuable, because it could support a colony—or perhaps be used for other purposes, such as powering spacecraft. But thus far, efforts to find any below the surface in the more temperate regions have come up empty-handed. In this new effort, the researchers were studying one of the lunar meteorites found on the surface of the Earth. Such meteorites are pieces of the moon blasted into space by an impact. The fragment studied by the team in Japan turned out to be unique—it held some amount of moganite, a mineral that only forms in the presence of water.Prior research had shown that the meteorite, named NWA 272, crashed into a northern part of Africa approximately 17,000 years ago. Comparison with other moon surface material confirmed it came from the lunar surface, as well. After finding it contained moganite, the team ran more tests to show that it had not formed after landing on Earth. © 2018 Phys.org Study suggests Earth’s water was present before impact that caused creation of the moon (A) Lunar moganite, (B) red and blue denote the high and low relative abundances.

Sasaoka (SASAMI-GEO-SCIENCE) Journal information: Science Advances To explain the presence of the mineral, the team suggests the moon was struck by a comet or other water-bearing object. Some of the water likely evaporated, but some would also have seeped into the lunar surface. As the water sat below the surface, moganite eventually formed. Sometime thereafter, the same area was once again impacted—this time by an object that flung bits of the lunar surface containing the moganite into space. After that, it made its way to Earth.The researchers suggest their finding is exciting because logic suggests if water were under the surface at one time, more could be there now. It would just be a matter of making the effort to find it. More information: Masahiro Kayama et al. Discovery of moganite in a lunar meteorite as a trace of H 2 O ice in the Moon’s regolith, Science Advances (2018). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aar4378AbstractMoganite, a monoclinic SiO2 phase, has been discovered in a lunar meteorite. Silica micrograins occur as nanocrystalline aggregates of mostly moganite and occasionally coesite and stishovite in the KREEP (high potassium, rare-earth element, and phosphorus)–like gabbroic-basaltic breccia NWA 2727, although these grains are seemingly absent in other lunar meteorites. We interpret the origin of these grains as follows: alkaline water delivery to the Moon via carbonaceous chondrite collisions, fluid capture during impact-induced brecciation, moganite precipitation from the captured H2O at pH 9.5 to 10.5 and 363 to 399 K on the sunlit surface, and meteorite launch from the Moon caused by an impact at 8 to 22 GPa and >673 K. On the subsurface, this captured H2O may still remain as ice at estimated bulk content of >0.6 weight %. This indicates the possibility of the presence of abundant available water resources underneath local sites of the host bodies within the Procellarum KREEP and South Pole Aitken terranes.
