...most expensive marinas Tara Loader Wilkinson 13 Apr 2010 The world's super-yacht owners have a lot on their plate. Not only do they shoulder yearly management costs of up to 20% of their yacht's value, but they also have to find a berth for their boat - which can cost up to €2,900 ($3937) a night, according to new research on the top 10 most expensive marinas. Portofino, Italy The Italian resorts of Capri, Porto Cervo and Portofino (pictured) topped the first annual survey of the most expensive resorts in the world to berth a super-yacht, according to Wealth Bulletin, our sister title. However, prices can fluctuate wildly during peak times, especially in the famed South of France marinas of Monaco, St Tropez and Cannes. Andrea Pezzini, general manager at yacht management company Floating Life, said secret deals are common – so it helps to know someone at the marina. He said a client paid a staggering €15,000 for an overnight berth in Monaco during the Formula 1 Grand Prix race last year. 1. Capri, Italy Average daily mooring fee for super-yachts: €2,900 Number of super-yacht berths: 10 Average price of local property per sq/m: €11,688 Peak periods: The Rolex Capri Sailing week in May Officially the most expensive marina on Wealth Bulletin’s list and known as one of the Mediterranean’s most luxurious getaways for the wealthy, the tiny mountainous island of Capri off the Amalfi coast has a small marina with berths for 10 super-yachts – so......

Mr Bean

...defunct, Mr. Bean pretends it to be alive. Buying him a Christmas present or trying not to wake it in the mornings are some examples of the same. Now talking about Mr. Bean’s car, it was a British Leyland Mini 1000 of applejack green color. The locking system of the car was immensely innovative and how Mr. Bean parks his car was noticeable. The famous chair incident was a running joke throughout the series. Apart from the television and an animated cartoon series, a couple of movies were also adapted, namely “Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie” in 1997 and “Mr. Bean's Holiday” in 2007. The film follows Bean on a crucial journey across France for a holiday which after a number of hardships ends up in a screening of his video diary at the Cannes Film Festival. Various questions are still unanswered about Rowan Atkinson death. Hope he is alive and will again make the world rolling on the...

...Nicolaescu entered the realm of cinematography by chance. A friend offered him a job in the Bucharest Studios of that time. He didn't expect a career in directing, but his short poetic movie called Memoria trandafirului earned some attention at the 1962 Cannes Film Festival. In 1967,Dacii (1967) became the first Romanian hit-movie in Western Europe. Subsequently, Nicolaescu was internationally appreciated as a worthwhile historical films director. He had the privilege to work in France, Germany and other countries on several projects in the seventies and eighties. He directed Michael the Brave (1971) and Atunci i-am condamnat pe toti la moarte (1972), two of the best Romanian movies ever. He also was responsible for such indigenous blockbusters as Nemuritorii (1974),Cu mîinile curate (1972),Noi, cei din linia întîi (1985) and Mircea (1989). Uncle Marin, the Billionaire (1979) is his only comedy to date. After the Romanian Revolution (1989), Nicolaescu became a political figure, but he continued to direct movies. Without the assistance of the military, he couldn't complete as many epics as he did back in the Communist era. Oglinda (1993) and Triunghiul mortii (1999) were well-received at the box-office. A "Steven Spielberg of the Romanian cinema", Nicolaescu is a self-taught technician and, sometimes, an artist who approached various genres and themes. Indeed, most of his films have an evident commercial tinge, but despite new voices that question his talent, ethics or even......

...involves the texts, Hunger, Shame and 12 Years a Slave. Due to film making becoming more of a business than about the art, companies are not willing to take as many risks as they do not want to lose money investing in an unknown film story when they can easily release a known product that they know will make them money, therefore it is important for independent films to make themselves as much as possible for as cheap as possible. Since ‘Hunger’ only had a budget of £1,500,000 it didn’t have much of its budget go to marketing or advertising it had to heavily rely on an online presence with its reception from critics and film reviewers. Hunger garnered much of its attention from the controversy that it sparked online, it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and caused a huge split between influential film reviewers. Many film reviewers loved and praised the film, Roger Ebert a hugely popular reviewer with a huge amount of fans as he is one of the most highly regarded film reviewer in the world, highly recommended the film and gave it his highest rating, where as many other film reviewers said that they walked out of the screening in disgust, this gave the film a larger online presence as there was much discussion about it and its controversy on film website like IMDb who had an editor write an article on the film and its controversy which was no doubt viewed by more people who didn’t know about the film originally. The film was also promoted by a popular reviewer who......

Michael Moore

...Review Bowling for Columbine: -by Kasper Jørgensen Rating: Michael Moore’s documentary “Bowling for Columbine” is inspired by the school massacre at Columbine High School back in 1999. The film explores what Michael Moore suggests could be the reasons behind such a tragedy. An early scene of the movie shows how Michael Moore gets his hands on a hunting rifle, simply by opening a bank account (!) Just before leaving the bank, Moore asks, "Don’t you think it's a little dangerous handing out guns at a bank?" A clear indication of his point of view, so early in the documentary. Michael Moore uses several effects to affect us, the whole setup of the movie is so messy and cleverly cut, that you have to be a true-blood American and blissfully unaware about things around you, not to feel that he has a point with this documentary. He uses the shock effect many times, best illustrated by the video montage of some of the awful American foreign policy decisions. Along with this montage of video footage, the song: What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong is playing, which of course is ironic as hell. His strongest argument for all the gun violence in the U.S.A. is the fear that gets thrown at the Americans, throughout their entire lives, all broadcasted by the media. He also shows the American history, through a hilarious animated movie, with a bullet as the narrator. All in all, if you want a good laugh, try to understand other countries mentality or just want some......

...Life on the Oregon Trail was difficult to all pioneers. It took day’s maybe weeks to get ready for the journey. A family of four would have to have over a thousand of pounds of food to survive the very long journey. To travel this long journey pioneers needed a wagon to travel. They needed a wagon because they would need to carry all of that food. Before starting the trip most pioneers had cholera. A lot of pioneers died having it and some were lucky to get better. When it was time to travel there would be huge traffic jams. Some pioneers were not trained. This means that they couldn’t control their ox’s. So most of the time the wagon will run into a tree or the ox will take the wagon in the wrong direction. Only a couple of miles into the journey pioneers noticed that they packed to much stuff into their wagon. So they decided to throw stuff along the way. Settlers from the jump off towns picked up the stuff. Most of the stuff was baconflour & iron stoves. Crossing rivers was one of the most stressful things in the journey. Hundreds died trying to cross some rivers. Those rivers are called the Kansas, North Platte, and Colombia Rivers. Many pioneers walked the 2,000 mile journey. That’s because they overloaded their wagons. In 1850 37 settlers drowned crossing the Green River. The wagons weren’t 100% safe. It didn’t have no safe features. Therefore if someone fell out the wagon death was instant. A diary quoted “A little boy fell over the front end of the wagon during......

The Eulogy of My Goldfish

...Good afternoon, and welcome to the funeral of my dearest friend, Andy. Today I’d like to reflect on Andy’s short, but full life and highlight the lessons he taught me so that you may also live as Andy did. Andy and I first met at the local pet store last Saturday afternoon, the store clerk was having a difficult time catching a one-eyed goldfish in his tiny net. So I asked him why he wanted that goldfish out so badly, and he said that this little pain in the ass has been scaring away customers so it’s time for him to go. I just couldn’t see why. All I saw was a lonely, helpless being that wanted to be cared for. So I took the net out of clerk’s hand and the little guy swam right into it. And just like that, the one-eyed goldfish that scared away customers, Andy, had swam into my heart. Shocked, and a little annoyed, the clerk allowed me to take Andy home with me. It was love at first blub, and I instantly knew we had a special connection. From the time we met at 1:26 that Saturday afternoon to his untimely death at 4:07 Monday morning I literally counted every second we spent together. Almost everyone has had a pet goldfish some point in their life, and once it dies you just flush it down the toilet and forget it even existed. But this one: my best friend, Andy, meant much more to me than any other goldfish ever could. In the short 3 days 14 hours and 41 minutes we knew each other, Andy taught me so much, and once he died, a little piece of me died along with him. When...

Changes of Lifestyle

...Changes of Lifestyle It is hard to understand and obey any law forcing individuals to change their way of living. In the book Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi there were many changes in the way of living during the Revolution. Persepolis was written based on Satrapi’s childhood memories through her eyes as a child. Satrapi explains the difficulties she had changing her usual ways and getting in trouble for expressing herself with the things she liked. It was not just Satrapi who faced changes but other families as well and even the society as a whole. Although there were many changes in the lifestyles of many, there was a great impact on the military, women, education and in many adolescences. To begin, the military began recruiting teenage boys at age fourteen living in poverty which created a change in the military. This was a change within the military because at fourteen one is still considered immature and has not mentally or physically developed to the fullest. To join the military one should be mature and fully grown. Many of these fourteen year old boys were tricked into joining the military. They were given a key painted gold representing value. They were told if they were fortunate enough to die, the golden key would open the door into heaven. They were promised a better life than the one they were living in the lower class. As Mrs. Nasrine, Satrapi’s maid, explains, “‘They told him that in paradise there will be plenty of food, women and......

Strike a Balance

...Something struck me some time back when I was reading an article forwarded by a friend on Whatsapp in which the author has drawn the attention towards a a new kind of problem. The author spoke about a boy from Trichy, a city in India, who had settled in USA after his studies and didn't have any feelings for either his country or even his native city for that matter where he grew up and studied. In fact, he had no childhood memories and he wouldn't even come to see his ailing parents. When the author was contacted by the father of the boy to reach out to his son, the author tried to connect with the son, and at the request of the author, the son did come to see his parents but he didn’t stay for more than 5 days with his parents and went back to USA, the place where he liked to stay now. Now, this is not what struck me as this story of ignorance towards parents by their children is something that we hear quite often these days. Instead, what struck me was the son's reason for doing so. When asked by the author, son stated that he does respect his parents and wanted to do things for them but the connect between him and his parents was missing somewhere. He said that his childhood was all about studies and nothing else. There were no childhood memories from vacations, holidays or even festivals, he could only think of studies from his childhood. In fact, all that he could remember about his parents from his childhood was that he was always forced by them to keep......

...Submitted by: Jamaica Kathleen P. Salcedo 2m4 The Prodigal Son Luke 15:11-32 11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them. 13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything. 17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20 So he got up and went to his father. “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. 21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ 22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick!

I'M Not Sure What This Is

...Tenacity has played a key role in my academic and personal goals. Growing up, I realized from a young age that I had an undeniable passion for boxing. Ironically, my passion lead to the most difficult struggle I’ve ever faced. Unlike my fellow peers, I strayed away from the normal athletic pursuits and instead of representing a football uniform, I found myself in the gym with boxing gloves strapped to my wrists. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that like many contact sports, injury is always a possibility. My sophomore year, I was training six days a week, for multiple hours a day. Pushing myself at this extent led to a severe stress fracture in my right shoulder: my punching arm. The doctors advised me that this injury might inhibit me from ever fighting at my caliber again. I felt devastated and helpless to my injury and for days after hearing the news, I feel into a depression that felt inescapable. However, in a moment of epiphany and with the help of my loving and motivational coach, I decided not to be a victim; this was not the end of my dreams. In the months to come, I clawed my way through countless hours of physical therapy and rehabilitation. Eight months later, I found myself at the qualifiers of the US Junior Olympics. Six rounds of fighting later, I stood on the podium victorious. I will never forget the feeling I had that day, the day my dreams came...
