How to promote rural tourism? Here’s how they do it in Switzerland

first_imgTherefore, the whole approach to the development of tourism must be different, and so we must approach the promotion of the same. One of the best examples of how to promote tourism in the interior is certainly Switzerland, from which we can learn a lot through just one video. A sympathetic resident, a non-professional actor, from the idyllic mountain village of Vrin in the Lumnesia Valley iodizes passersby, inviting them to visit him that afternoon of the same day. He even volunteered to send an apology to school teachers or bosses, as an excuse for not having you. If passers-by accept the offer to come to his place in the village of Vrin immediately, the screen will print a free map, and all you need to do is jump on the train and experience the village of Virin. This story brings two great examples of how rural tourism is promoted in Switzerland? Another example comes to us from the Swiss region of Graubünden where there is a small town of Tschlin known for its peace and quiet, especially silence. Want to see and experience Vrin? A story worth telling, right? As we do not have the sun and the sea as the primary concept of vacation or as a motive for tourists, tourists can not rest for half a day or more on the beach, but look for quality content, are much more mobile and therefore spend much more than classic tourists. Of course, some of the motives for coming are certainly ecology, nature, healthy living, gastronomy, culture, active tourism, etc.… We can learn a few lessons from this great promotion. It is silence that is the main ingredient of this story where Tschlin is promoted as the quietest place in Switzerland. Namely, as the citizens of this village point out in the video, the village is so quiet that every citizen (there are a little more than 160 of them in total) hears when the public telephone in the village rings. And they wanted to prove it. Whoever calls the payphone number, one of the citizens will try to answer and talk to you. If no one manages to answer the phone within a certain period of time, you get a free weekend in Tschlin. In both cases, the key ingredients were: interaction, authenticity, creativity and innovation and real people and a great story. center_img And in the end, but certainly the most important message, is that the video did not use professional actors, but people’s things. Real people with real reactions and emotions. This professional actors could never deliver or act out, that experience and the feelings it awakens in us viewers cannot be bought or acted out. And it can only be delivered by the hosts and a real authentic story. Technology is there just as one of the channels and to help us tell the story. Embrace it and use it wisely. But without the main ingredients of these stories, no technology can help you. When we talk about the development of tourism in the continental or rural area, then we must be aware that it is a totally different tourist product, and therefore a different profile of tourists. The first is that the manner and performance of the promotion must be different, not classic through the classic mosaic of video and drone footage. The other is the power of social networks and new technologies. By the way, the video was targeted only for social networks, ie the online platform, and not for TV advertising. The third lesson is the power of storytelling or storytelling. This is a story that inspires, stays in a strong memory and motivates us to want to experience it ourselves and be a part of that story. The campaign was launched only through online media and was a huge success. In only six days there were over 30.000 attempted calls, 3906 successful conversations, and thanks to the great free media coverage due to the great campaign, 1.5 million video views and 500.000 site visits were achieved, while it is estimated that over 23 million readers heard and saw the story. Yes, and the “less” important one, a total of 68 lucky people received the award because no one got on the phone. The first campaign targeted urban people at Zurich train station through interactive posters with a real “mountain man” who can see and talk to those passing by. Tell stories, our authentic stories.last_img read more

Terry Rozier matures after troubled childhood, excels as top scorer for Louisville

first_imgEvery night, a 6-year-old Terry Rozier slept in a tote bag filled with his clothes, refusing to unpack because he wanted to go home.He hated his grandmother. He hated living with her and he wanted to be back with his mother.“It was like somebody took my heart,” Gina Tucker, his mother, said. “It was so hard for both of us.”Rozier was born in Youngstown, Ohio, but his mother had to give his custody to her mother when he was 6 because his criminal father’s enemies made threats on Rozier’s life.Rozier grew up in a dangerous area, misbehaved as child and lacked a male influence in his life, but persevered through it all. Now, he’s the leading scorer for a fourth-seeded Louisville (26-8, 12-6 Atlantic Coast) that’s facing No. 8 seed North Carolina State (22-13, 10-8) in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament at 7:37 p.m. in the Carrier Dome on Friday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I’m a tough kid,” Rozier said. “I’ve seen a lot. I’ve been through a lot.”Tucker was 19 when she had Rozier, the second of her three children. But a month after his birth, his father was sent to prison, leaving her to raise him alone.Rozier was a hyper child, always running around the house. Soup cans and rolled up socks were substituted for basketballs and milk crates stood in as nets.“He would light my day up,” Tucker said. “But at the same time I would cry because it was just overwhelming for me.”She would often call her brother or a friend to help handle a young Rozier and bring a male influence in his life. One day, Tucker was so upset with her son that she gathered all of his toys and game systems into a trash bag and made him watch as she threw them out.When Rozier was about 5, his father was released from prison and he got to spend time with him for the first time in his life. But after nine months, Terry Rozier Sr. was sent to prison again for his role in a robbery and kidnapping in 2003.“I blamed him for Terry having a behavioral problem and being difficult,” Tucker said. “For not being there to help me with this child that I can’t really control at times.”Rozier had not only lost his father again, but was threatened because of his father’s actions.Tucker packed her son’s bags and gave custody of him to her mother, Amanda Tucker, who lived in Shaker Heights, Ohio.Rozier cried, screamed and lashed out at his grandmother. He thought she was the reason he was taken from his home. Amanda Tucker would often have to pin him to the ground until he calmed down.Friends told her to send Rozier to a juvenile detention center or a foster home, but she refused.“‘I don’t care how much you dislike me, I love you and you cannot do nothing to make me send you back to Youngstown,’” Amanda Tucker recalls telling Rozier.“‘You’re going realize, one day, how much I love you.’”Four years later, when Rozier was 10, that day came.He was back in Youngstown for Thanksgiving. His mother was at a bar when someone told her that someone was going to shoot up her house, where Amanda Tucker and eight of her grandchildren were, and throw Molotov cocktails into it.Amanda Tucker took her grandchildren into a room in the back of the house and cried with them, preparing to throw them out of the window to escape if anything happened.Nothing did, but for the first time since Rozier was forced to move in with his grandmother, he told her loved her.“I never thought I could hear those words from him,” Amanda Tucker said.At 14, Rozier got his mother and grandmother’s names tattooed on his forearms, and later followed that up with a tattoo of his father’s face with the word “motivation” above it.Louisville was his dream school, but he had to attend Hargrave Military Academy for a post-graduate year because of academics. The discipline and structure were a shock.“I wrote him a letter and I told him if you stop playing basketball right now, I’m going to always love you,” Gina Tucker said.He didn’t and when Rozier finally made it to Louisville, he donned the No. 0, symbolizing a fresh start from everything in his past.A boy that once resented his own grandmother and was too much for his family to handle has grown into the leader of a Division I basketball team making an NCAA tournament run.“Sometimes I’m at the games and I feel teary eyed, not because I’m sad, but just happy and excited for him,” Gina Tucker said. “All of his dreams are just coming true.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 27, 2015 at 12:29 am Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettuslast_img read more

Cavs Kyrie Irving To Miss Month With Broken Finger

Kyrie Irving was on his way to exploding into the upper echelon of NBA players. His ascension was sidetracked, though, when he suffered a broken left index finger, knocking him out of action for at least a month.The Cleveland Cavaliers initially diagnosed it as a bruise before tests revealed a fracture. The NBA’s reigning rookie of the year got hurt in the third quarter Saturday night against Dallas. X-rays were negative and he returned to the game with his finger wrapped.He played Sunday at Philadelphia, but scored a season-low nine points on 4-of-14 shooting as Cleveland dropped its sixth straight game. On Monday, he underwent an MRI and other tests which showed a hairline/non-displaced fracture. The Cavs said Irving’s finger will be taped and placed in a splint. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.It’s the latest injury for the talented 20-year-old, who broke his right hand during a summer practice when he slammed it in frustration against a padded wall when the team was in Las Vegas. Irving played in just 11 games as a freshman at Duke because of a foot tendon injury, which took more than one year to heal completely.Last season, Irving missed 15 games with a concussion and shoulder injury.As the Cavs opened camp in October, Irving was asked about a label of being fragile.“I’m not worried about being injury prone,” he said. “Not at all.”And yet he is hurt again.Irving added five pounds of muscle during the offseason so he would be able to handle any contact on drives to the basket. But he wound up losing the weight after he had four wisdom teeth pulled.Also with the struggling Cavs, second-year forward Tristan Thompson sustained a nasal fracture in Sunday’s loss to the Sixers. He will be fitted with a protective mask and is projected to be available for Wednesday’s home game against Philadelphia. read more

Allocation for EastWest Metro comes down in Union Rail Budget

first_imgKolkata: The Rail Budget presented by acting Union Finance minister Piyush Goyal on Friday has come up as a mixed bag for the ongoing Metro projects in the city. The allocation in some projects has gone up, but the long-length Metro projects have been allocated less.The allocation for the East West Metro has come down from Rs 1,100 crore in 2018 to Rs 905 crore this year. However, the Budget has allocated Rs 10 crore for extension of the EW Metro from Central Park to Haldiram. It is a new project proposed by the state government early in 2018 as an extension of the East West Metro Railway. The move was geared to reduce the traffic pressure on VIP Road. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedA detailed project report (DPR) for the extension was prepared and Kolkata Metro Railway Corporation Limited (KMRCL) that was implementing the EW Metro project approved it, following which the Centre’s nod was sought. The original EW Metro project was from Sector V in Salt Lake to Howrah Maidan. According to the plan, there will be five new Metro stations along VIP Road, namely Baisakhi, Kestopur, Baguiati, Raghunathpur and Haldiram’s. The 6.7 km extension upto Haldiram’s will lead to an additional cost of Rs 1,347 crore.

If railways follow our proposed plan for the extension then there is no need to acquire land,” a senior official of the state Transport department said. The Budget for another big Metro project from New Garia to Kolkata Airport has also seen a drop of Rs 10 crore in comparison to 2018. Last year, the allocation was Rs 355 crore, which has come down to Rs 345 crore this year. Meanwhile, the allocation for the Joka-BBD Bag Metro project remained the same with Rs 100 crore. The proposed Baranagar-Dakshinsheswar Metro project received a boost with an allotment of Rs 65 crore this year. Not a single penny was allocated for this project in 2018. The allotment for the project from Noapara to Barasat also saw a rise from Rs 187 crore last year to Rs 225 crore.last_img read more
