Slavonski Brod starts the realization of the project “House of stools – Slavonian music fairy tale”

first_imgThe City of Slavonski Brod is starting the realization of the 27,4 million kuna project “House of the Tambourine – Slavonian Music Fairy Tale”, which will be co-financed with 23,3 million kuna from EU funds, writes the portal Sbplus.hr.The City of Slavonski Brod submitted to the Brod-Posavina Administrative Department for Communal Economy and Environmental Protection a request for a preliminary acceptability assessment procedure for the ecological network for the reconstruction, rehabilitation and arrangement of the northwestern cavalier of the Brod Fortress. In addition to the reconstruction, rehabilitation and arrangement of the north-western cavalier, the reconstruction of the reconstructed space into the “House of the tambourine – Slavonian musical fairy tale – the house of our notes” will be done.”The building in question is located in the center of the fortress complex of the Brod Fortress in Slavonski Brod. The building of the complex has a massive horseshoe-shaped structure. The purpose of the project is to reconstruct the northwestern cavalier, rehabilitate and restore it, and return it to its original dimensions. After the reconstruction, the space will be given new content and converted into the Tamburitza House – Slavonian music fairy tale.. ”, It is written in the submitted request.By the way, in Slavonski Brod, the Tamburitza Museum operates as unique not only in Croatia but also in the world. But unfortunately in inappropriate conditions, which require as urgent changes as possible in order to be turned into a unique tourist experience for all visitors.The project, worth 30 million kuna, envisages that in a space of about two and a half thousand square meters, in addition to the museum exhibition, there will be a multimedia center, a master workshop and a souvenir shop. Part of the allocated space will consist of a multipurpose hall, archive and documentation center and administrative and storage spaces. By transforming a part of the Fortress into an Interactive Creative Center dedicated to traditional tamburitza music and a traditional musical instrument, the space would be protected from further deterioration, and then – gradually – connected to the urban and cultural fabric of the city. Later programs should turn it into a real tourist attraction and a first-class tourist experience for visitors from both Croatia and abroad.Source: Sbplus.hrlast_img read more

Late comeback can’t hold off No. 5 Oregon

first_imgA late comeback attempt from USC was shut down by No. 5 Oregon Saturday night, as the Ducks topped the Trojans by a score of 81-70 at the Galen Center.With 2:40 remaining in regulation, junior guard Elijah Stewart knocked down a 3-point shot that pulled the Trojans within three points of the Ducks.Oregon responded by closing the game out on a 10-2 run over the final two minutes of regulation to clinch its 14th consecutive victory against USC. The Trojans have dropped their last seven games against the Ducks in Los Angeles, and they haven’t beat Oregon at home since the 2009 season. The Trojans finished the game by missing their last four shot attempts in the contest; USC made no field goals over the final 2:40 of regulation.“That was a tough game. We played hard, but not well enough to win,” head coach Andy Enfield said. “Our guards were off tonight in their decision making and shooting. To beat a top-five team in the country, you have to play better.”Poor shooting from the field was a struggle for USC all night Saturday. The Trojans finished the game shooting 22-for-59 (37.3 percent).USC’s shooting woes may have been most evident from beyond the 3-point line. In the first half, USC shot 2-of-15 (13.3 percent) from beyond the arc. Overall, the Trojans shot 6-for-27 (22.2 percent) from distance.“When you’re 6-for-27 from three and a lot were wide open and you miss three dunks, it’s hard to beat a team like this,” Enfield said.A layup from sophomore forward Bennie Boatwright gave USC its largest lead of the night against Oregon, as the Trojans led 49-46 with just over 13 minutes remaining.“Tonight shows our growth. It shows we can play with anybody,” said freshman guard De’Anthony Melton, who finished with nine points and two steals Saturday. “We need to learn how to close out games.”As was the case for many USC shooters Saturday night, Boatwright had his share of struggles from the field. Boatwright finished the game shooting 3-of-15 (20 percent), but he did hit all eight of his free throws to finish with 15 points against Oregon.Leading the way for the Trojans was sophomore forward Chimezie Metu, who recorded a team-high 16 points Saturday. Metu finished 6-of-8 from the field while reeling in four rebounds and dishing three assists.“We have to protect the ball. We had too many turnovers,” said Stewart, who totaled 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting.USC committed a total of 16 turnovers against the Ducks after averaging 11.1 turnovers per game entering Saturday. Oregon capitalized on Trojan mistakes, as the Ducks outscored USC in points off turnovers, 23-12.Oregon junior forward Dillon Brooks finished with a game-high 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting. Brooks was 3-of-5 shooting from deep against the Trojans.Brooks finished as the game’s leading scorer despite fouling out with 3:28 remaining in regulation.Oregon sophomore guard Tyler Dorsey scored 19 points (6-of-13 shooting) and recorded five rebounds. Ducks junior forward Jordan Bell finished with a game-high 14 rebounds; he recorded a double-double as he also scored 12 points Saturday.Overall, Oregon edged USC on the glass by a margin of 39-34.With the loss, the Trojans were unable to avenge their 84-61 loss to the Ducks earlier this season on Dec. 30. USC has never upset an opponent ranked in the top five nationally at the Galen Center.Saturday’s loss also put an end to the Trojan’s five-game winning streak in Pac-12 play.USC will look to rebound in conference play as it travels to Pauley Pavilion on Saturday to take on No. 10 UCLA. The Trojans will be looking for a big upset of a top 10-ranked opponent and its fifth consecutive victory over the Bruins.last_img read more
