Il Divo Live in Barcelona

...IL Divo Live in Barcelona Charliena Diego Professor Nancy Barlar HUM 11- World Cultures 1 Dec 18, 2012 IL Divo Live in Barcelona I was not able to attend this concert in person, but I did watch it on on December 18, 2012 at 12:46 pm on a Tuesday afternoon. I sat and watched it by myself in my family room, because my children and husband do not care for this kind of music as I do. The concert was with IL Divo, they are four men named David Miller, Sebastien Izambard, Carlos Marin, and Urs Buhler, and they are dressed in black suits when they come out on stage. The concert was live in Barcelona on April 3, 2009 and the performance was at the Palau Sant Jordi. IL Divo is surrounded by an operatic quartet that plays the music beautifully. My initial reaction about this concert/place is what a magnificent place the Palau Sant Jordi is, it was built in the year 1990 in Barcelona, Spain. I truly wish that I could go and see these four beautiful men sing their hearts out, I would be in awe over how big and beautiful these guy’s voices truly are and I bet in person it would be an amazing gift to hear. The song that IL Divo sang is one of my all time favorite songs from Simon & Garfunkel is/was Bridge over trouble waters. Un- break my Heart originally sung by Toni Braxton who sang it in 1993 and she sounded great when she sang it, but when IL Divo sang this song they blew my mind away with the way their voices are so rich and deep it’s like floating in......

Issues in Barcelona

...1- Overcrowding the city Barcelona attracts high visitor numbers from within Spain and internationally. Visitors for both long and short city-breaks are most concentrated during the summer peak season. Visitor’s interests are also diverse from the cultural and architectural, to the shopping and beach holidays, and for the young, the thriving nightlife is the key. All these elements combined turn Las Ramblas, the Sagrada Familia and other tourist attractions into a slow moving mass of people. This means that the structure and layout of the city is concentrated in a small central area and produces massive over-crowding in the city, on the beaches and at the attractions. In practice, it is important to ensure that tourism is distributed throughout the city, also because Barcelona cannot tolerate a tourism growth without limits. 2- Environmental damage Tourist activities have always operated in harmony with the surrounding environment. Considering the influence of the tourism sector on a global level, it is unavoidable that his impact, involves along economic benefits and comfort, also the negative consequences of social, cultural and environmental sustainability, especially if the tourist activity is not adequately developed, planned and carried out in the right way. The main effects of the tourism in Barcelona on the environment can be summarized in the following......

Barcelona 1997

...In July 1996, Bobby Robson joined Barcelona and took charge of a group that would churn out several successful coaches over the years. Back then, nobody could imagine that the squad and coaching staff could turn into such a renowned and prestigious set of managers in the future. Proof of the pudding has been evident this season. You only need to look at the league champions in Spain, England, France and Germany to see why, with all four clubs managed by coaches who were part of that squad: Luis Enrique (Barcelona), Guardiola (Bayern), Blanc (PSG) and Mourinho (Chelsea), who was Robson's assistant at the time. They are not the only coaches to have emerged from the Robson days. Julen Lopetegui's Porto have finished runners-up in Portugal and reached the Champions League quarter-finals this season. Sergi Barjuán has been at the helm of Almería for a month and is battling to save the club from the drop. Albert Ferrer was also in the photo and started the season in charge of Córdoba. Juan Antonio Pizzi is the current Club León coach in Guanajuato, Mexico. Before embarking on his Mexican adventure, the former striker enjoyed an excellent campaign at Valencia and previously in Argentina. Hristo Stoichkov has also coached several clubs as well as the Bulgaria national team. Albert Celades is the current Spain U21 coach, a post that he took on in place of Lopetegui. Abelardo currently sits in the dugout at Sporting de Gijón, as the club look to secure promotion to La......

Coastal Management at Barcelona

...Coastal Management at Barcelona/Catalonia Location: Barcelona is located in the east of Spain on the coast near the Mediterranean Sea. It has a population of 5 million Background: Many Catalan beaches are losing their sand. The November storms have starkly revealed this problem and the long term solution is a complex one involving a range of environmental, economic and social issues. The estimated costs of 1.690 million ptas to restore the damaged beaches and promenades are overshadowed by concerns regarding future sustainability, not just of the beaches, but of the coastal fringe in general and the tourist industry in particular. Both money and beach sediment are scarce resources in Catalonia, and conflict between competing resorts all looking to bolster their share of the tourist cake may be difficult to reconcile. Sea levels are rising. Maximum wave heights have been steadily increasing during the last decade, from 8.22 metres in 1991 to 9.92 metres on 9th November 2001. The best defence against coastal erosion and rising sea levels is the humble beach, cheaper than traditional hard defences in both the short and long term. But the creation of sustainable artificial beaches is more complex than simply dumping sand or shingle on the shore and the organisation responsible for these operations estimates annual sand loss at 10% of the amount spread. Causes: Alarmingly, the Catalan supply appears to be running out. Rivers such as the Llobregat and Besòs now barely......

2014 Hull Fc Season Review

...say if AP’s master plan has paid off just a season in. As with Peter Gentle, it’ll be the second season that Radders can hopefully prove his worth. With preparations already underway for next season, hope springs eternal. Not only is Radford stronger and wiser for the ups and downs of this year, but so too are his youthful squad. Finishing outside the play-offs will most definitely not be an option in 2015 given so much more is at stake. Onwards and upwards you might be forgiven to say… It’s fair to say worry set into the minds of the fans even in pre-season. An away draw at partner club Doncaster was followed by defeat at Bradford and a 54-6 demolishing at Featherstone in Richard ‘Superman’ Whiting’s testimonial match. Despite this, Hull FC claimed the season’s early bragging rights winning the pre-season ‘friendly’ derby. Inconsistent results even in January set the tone for the rest of the year, with the palms of many supporters planted into their glum faces. An inspiring start to the Super League season it may have been, but 2 wins out of the first 5 matches wouldn’t suggest this on paper. A nail-biting opener against the Dragons on a cold February night at the KC gave debuts to 5 players plus a somewhat cameo return for a certain Garreth Carvell. 2 tries from Kirk Yeaman and a stunning 70m try from Jordan Rankin got the season off to a flyer, with the assistance of a conversion miss by Thomas Bosc after the final hooter which would have brought the teams level.......

Fc Dallas Case Study

...Jake Smith Sport Marketing PA #2 1/12/16 FC Dallas Case Study FC Dallas is facing a challenge of re-energizing its advance and walk up sales, along with continuing to market to the 18-34 year old soccer connected males. They had great success initially and were able to convert most of the new fans into permanent fans with season tickets and mini plan sales. Unfortunately they also saw a corresponding decrease in advance and walk up sales. We got a lot of good information in this study, if I could have more I would like to know the ticket prices and perhaps what the 4 groups prefer to pay per ticket for a game. I’d like to see how much the price range changed from weekends and weeknights. The organization’s goals are to balance their sales, they want 4,000 walk up and in advance tickets to be sold. The past season they averaged 2,000 per game. Their focus is on those 18-34 year old soccer connected males because that’s where their success thus far has come from. The marketing strategy I would like to implement is one that brings in the most revenue opportunities possible. I suggest to put in a strategy where we focus very closely on Pub Partnerships. The Pub Partnerships are where we plan 8 watch parties, which will turn the pubs into landing spots for fans on game days if they can’t make the game. We will advertise FC Dallas players and current events, which will really collect the interest of possibly the biggest support group FCD has, the Dallas Beer......

Tourism in Barcelona

...Tourism sector in Barcelona Tourism is something attractive to tourists because people attract people. According to the book La imagen percibida por los turistas de la ciudad de Barcelona by Espelt and Benito, conveys the idea of “priori perception is the mental construction that one makes about a place without having a physical connection with it; the in situ perception is the one that the tourist makes mixing the imagined and the reality; and the a posterior perception is the idealized one that we bring with us from the places” For over 200 years Barcelona was under Muslim rule and following the Christian reconquest it became a country of the Caroligian Empire. From the 15th to 18th centuries Barcelona entered a period of decline due to their economic and political independence management problem issues. A period of cultural recovery began in the mid 19th century with the arrival of the development of the textile industry and finally on the 20th century the widespread urban renewal throughout Barcelona city culminated in its landmark Eixample district as the place of the most distinctive Catalan art nouveau/modernista buildings area. Only 20 years ago from today, Barcelona hosted the Olympic games and this was the key issue to reafirm its potential as one of the attractive touristic city in Europe. Nowadays the economic crisis is affecting many different business markets and several of the companies are forced to close due to its incapability of maintaining......
