For the first time, 10 million air passengers were realized

first_imgFor the first time in history, more than 10 million passengers passed through Croatian airports this year, and that record was broken in the first 10 months of this year.Last year, slightly more than 9,5 million passengers passed through Croatian airports, he writes Vecernji list.The majority of air passengers arrive in Croatia in the summer months, ie during the tourist season, when the largest increase in traffic is realized at domestic airports. And that is where the biggest problem lies. We need to open airlines outside the peak season to extend the tourist season.As Mark Thomas writes for Dubrovnik Herald in a conversation with Peter Greenber, editor and one of the most recognizable faces of the American CBS TV channel, there are a large number of travelers who do not seek exclusively sun and sea, they travel to meet and experience different cultures. Airlines are holding us by the hand and it’s time to start fighting it. Greenber is of the same opinion, pointing out. “Your city is actually a hostage of the airlines, they are the ones who decide when you will make money and when you will not. That must change”Says Greenber, referring to Dubrovnik.“I did not come to Dubrovnik to sunbathe; nice weather is definitely a bonus. I came here to enjoy the culture and history of your City. And, I’ve seen a lot of new and exciting things because I have enough time for it. “said Greenberg.Read the full interview with Peter Greenberg here The problem of poor connectivity out of season is best seen in the review of direct and direct flights air connectivity Croatian airports with 12 significant emitting markets, which was published for the winter by the Department for Market Research and Strategic Planning of the Croatian National Tourist Board.RELATED NEWS:GROWING INTEREST OF BRITISH TOUR OPERATORS AND AIRLINERS FOR CROATIAOVERVIEW OF DIRECT AIR CONNECTION OF CROATIA – WINTERWORKS HAVE STARTED ON THE RUNNING AND LANDING PATH OF DUBROVNIK AIRPORTlast_img read more

What’s the wait with USC coaching search?

first_imgIt’s been 16 days since the USC men’s basketball team’s season ended in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas against a terrible Utah team at the Pac-12 tournament.The Trojans, who had been playing well under interim head coach Bob Cantu, stumbled toward the finish line, losing five of its last seven games. A loss at Washington State also led to a pair of suspensions after a fight broke out at a bar following the game in Spokane, Wash.A picture-perfect season, to say the least.But since former USC head coach Kevin O’Neill was fired on Jan. 14, the question of who the next Trojans’ coach will be has remained up in the air, unsettled and lacking closure until … wait, we still don’t know.Isn’t it about time these guys get a leader?Northwestern hired a Duke assistant to lead its team on Wednesday. Shaka Smart from Virginia Commonwealth signed a 10-year extension to stay at the school after being courted by UCLA. USC’s best hope was Jamie Dixon of Pittsburgh, who was thought to be the next man in charge. Naturally, he signed a 10-year extension to stay with the Panthers.Is the USC basketball coaching position that unattractive? Is it cursed? Has there been little effort to make a hire? Who knows?The Trojans need to make a splash to get the program on track — consecutive losing seasons are embarrassing. There are no more excuses: The John McKay Center is one of the top training facilities in college sports. The Galen Center is a great arena and one of the better ones in the conference. Southern California is an attractive place to attend school. So, what’s the holdup on a coach?I could understand if O’Neill had been fired after the Pac-12 tournament — then it would make sense that a coach hasn’t been hired yet.But he wasn’t. He was fired months ago, and since then a coaching search has supposedly been underway. Where’s the progress?UCLA has already been openly rejected by a coach, but at least the Bruins made an offer. If Northwestern, who has never made the NCAA tournament in its men’s basketball history, was able to find a coach in less than two weeks after firing its coach, USC sure as heck should be able to land one.Maybe Pat Haden and the gang are waiting for the right coach to come up, which is reasonable in theory. But the fact of the matter is that it doesn’t really work like that. Coaches get snatched up by other programs quickly, or the schools they’re at give them a huge deal that prevents them from leaving for other  pastures. If you wait, you lose. Everyone, after all, wants Gonzaga coach Mark Few, Florida Gulf Coast coach Andy Enfield, Butler’s Brad Stevens and VCU’s Smart.With three of those four coaches already out of the NCAA tournament, why the delay? And if the coaches of mid-major schools stay put? Pull an assistant away from a big-time program and hope for the best like Northwestern did. Not having a permanent coach for the last two months has not been good for the program.A program in flux is a program that is destined to fail. What does that say about stability to recruits? Or, worse yet, what does it say to fans and supporters? It says either, “We’re waiting around” or “No one wants this job.” Neither is a particularly good update, especially the latter.Whatever the reason for not having a coach, this can’t go on any longer. The players need to know who is going to lead them moving forward. Recruits need to know who is going to be wooing them during the next few months. Fans need a figure to place their confidence in.Waiting around is not going to accomplish these things. Either make a move for a hot name or poach someone from a coaching staff. To have two months pass and still not have a coach? That’s not going to fly in Troy; that’s for sure.“Goal Line Stand” runs Fridays.

Color Grading Footage in After Effects with Lumetri

first_imgUnderstanding Lumetri ScopesIf you have never used scopes before, here is a quick breakdown of each scope.The Waveform MonitorWith a typical display of 0-100, the waveform measures your shot’s data and lays it out across the display. Information at 0 IRE (Institute of Radio Engineers) is black pixels, or clipped information. Data that peaks at 100 IRE is white, or blown-out information. Essentially, the waveform displays the exposure across your shot.A good rule of thumb when correcting for lighter skin tones is to keep the highlights around 70 IRE.The VectorscopeThe vectorscope measures chroma in the shot. It displays the red, yellow, green, cyan, blue, and magenta values. Depending on your shot, you’ll see the data favoring certain areas of the vector. For example, if your shot includes a grassy field, the data in the vectorscope will lean heavily toward the greens. When you saturate your image, the data will pull outwards to the edges of the scope.The ParadeThe parade is best for correcting multiple shots in the same sequence. The parade usually displays in RGB, which shows the dominance of each color. With the parade, you can easily balance the color in your shot and monitor how it matches up with the other shots in your scene.The HistogramSimilar to the waveform scope, the histogram displays your luma and RGB from 0 IRE to 100 IRE.Tips for Great Color CorrectionEven though you may be a motion graphics artist or a compositor, when you are color correcting and grading footage, you are a colorist. Your job as a colorist is to put the final touches on the story. Your grade needs to set the final mood and ensure that there are no distractions from shot to shot. Scopes make sure your video is good across all displays and that the end result is broadcast legal. There aren’t many wrong answers when it comes to grading. It’s important to create your style and make sure you deliver what the client wants.What’s your opinion on color correcting and grading footage in After Effects? Let us know in the comments.
