The Governor’s Palace and its Location

Being one of the most significant infrastructures established during Italian domination of the island, the governor’s palace is an amalgamation of various architectural styles. Similarly, the arrangement of this palace stoutly bears a resemblance to the Palace of the Duces in Venice. One of the best Rhodes holidays ideasis to visit this palace of the medieval times.

The Governor’s palace is an Italian-built architect of 1927 designed by an architect of the same origin, named Florestano di Fausto. It was the Italians who used this building as their Governor’s Palace. Today, this place comes under the jurisdiction of Dodecanese region.

Ancient Staircase Leading towards the Governor’s Palace

Rhodes holidays 2010 provide its visitors with the opportunity to visit a gigantic staircase of the ancient times that leads towards the Governor’s Palace. It comprises of two buildings in its present form, while originally it had three buildings. After the passage of time, one building was unluckily demolished.

Later on, this staircase of its unique nature was once restored by the Danish Archaeological Mission in order to make it a museum. Afterwards, the Italians during their domination also restored this place.

There is a church of Saint John on the veranda of the huge ancient covered walkway, which can be seen high on the top of ‘cisterns hewn’ into the rock as well as the storage magazines of the Acropolis of c. 1st BC.

It is a cross-shaped decorated type of church that attracts many visitors during their summer Rhodes holidays. The ancient history indicates that this interesting church was constructed either at the end of c. 11th century or else in the c. 13th-14th centuries.

The process of its development was carried out apparently on the relics of a previously existing church. It is justified from the architectural fragments found on the Acropolis that date back to the c. 6th century AD. It is therefore a unique place to have fun and entertainment of all sorts during your stay in the brimming island of Rhodes.

Frontier Academy Dallas: Effective Communication
Event on 2017-10-17 09:00:00
Effective communication is a hallmark of all successful businesses.  However, many of us aren’t comfortable (or confident) in our ability to communicate because we never learned the basics or we’re fearful of the backlash that we perceive will come from speaking up. Others of us may think our way of communicating works just fine, unaware our skills could be improved.   This workshop is designed to give you a crash course in communicating using all mediums available, choosing the right medium for the right message, and connecting with and motivating your audience. We also help you with some of the trickier forms of communication, like offering accurate feedback, listening to and diffusing conflict, and getting buy-in. Ideal participants: Managers who want to have a greater impact in communicating with their team, organization, and stakeholders.  — We understand that circumstances change, but for planning purposes Frontier Academy requires 48 hours notice if you need to cancel, or reschedule, in order to receive a full refund, otherwise you will be charged the workshop’s full amount. You may send someone in your place, but we ask that you do give us notice that you are doing so. Thank you for your understanding!

JERUSALEM (April 15, 2013) – Cardinal Seán and a group of 29 priests of the Archdiocese of Boston have traveled on an Easter pilgrimage to the Holy Land this week, and they’re bringing the readers of blog along with them.

On the last day of their pilgrimage, the pilgrims began by walking the Via Dolorosa, the Way of the Cross, the path through the streets of Jerusalem that Jesus walked with the Cross to the Crucifixion. After celebrating Mass, they thanked those who had taken care of them on their pilgrimage and prepared for their flights home. As they waited, news of the bombings at the Boston Marathon back home reached the pilgrims and they united themselves in prayer with those who were hurt, their families, and the emergency workers who rushed to care for them.

All this week, our colleague George Martell is traveling with the pilgrimage, embedded with the Cardinal and his priests so we can bring you photos, blogs, videos, and audio reports from the Holy Land from the pilgrims at such places as the Basilica of the Annunciation, Mount Carmel, the Sea of Galilee, the Church of the Transfiguration, Qumran, the Mount of Olives, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Upper Room, and more. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus with Cardinal Seán and the Archdiocese’s priests as an Easter retreat experience.

Please stay tuned to, as well as and and our Facebook Page at and Twitter account: for the latest updates from the Holy Land.

Aaj tak tv has been spreading informative waves, ever since its inception on December 31, 1999. The channel has been winning hearts of millions, which is evident from the fact that it is watched by up to 45 million viewers in Indias cable and satellite universe. The channels name roughly translates into till today, and many would agree that it lives up to the promise that its name carries, delivering up-to-the-date news, and always being a ready source of news to turn to, for reliable information on the latest on-goings.

Aaj tak news is run by the TV Today Network Ltd., and is one of Indias largest privately owned news channels. The channel started off as a free-to-air channel, and joined in the league of paid cable channels in 2006. It is available on EchoStars DISH network in the United States. Aaj Tak has been disregarded by some critics for the fact that it fits more as an infotainment channel, rather than news channel. But this hasnt done anything against the channels popularity.

The accolades that have been bestowed upon the channel, speak volumes for its quality. It has been awarded Indian Television Academys Best News Channel award for a whooping consecutive 8 years. To top this, the channel was voted as the most trusted news source in India by a BBC/Reuters/Media Center poll, conducted in 2006, managing to win by a small margin of 1% over Doordarshan. These facts explain why millions of viewers tune in to watch aaj tak live, i.e. for a perfect blend of reliable news and entertainment.

The channel has a catchy slogan, Sabse Tez, which translates as the fastest, and it has definitely stood up to this claim. The channel always offers us the latest that there is in the world of news, and does it at lightning speed. What makes aaj tak news stand in a league apart from the regular news channels is the respite that it offers from the drudgery that a regular viewer dreads at the very mention of the word news. Aaj Tak has given a whole new definition to news, making it appeal to everyone, right from a youngster to a house wife. This can be attributed to the manner in which the channel offers a dash of spice with every bland piece of news.

aaj tak tv has a sister channel, Headlines Today that was launched in 2003, in an attempt to cater to the English-speaking audiences. The channel enjoys immense popularity, though has not been able to match to Aaj Tak. Apart from having a sister channel, Aaj Tak also has many competitors to fight against. These include Star News, Zee News, and Sahara Samay, among others. But Aaj Tak definitely manages to stand as the supreme channel when it comes to round-the-clock news in Hindi.

I am Shimr Dsouza. I am a writer and write articles about entertainment and television shows. As watching tv is my biggest hobby I love to write about my favorite TV shows. In my busy schedule, I never find time to watch TV but I do watch live aaj tak on my favorite site which allows me to watch live channels

NYC – Queens – Astoria: Kaufman Astoria Studios

Image by wallyg
Kaufman Astoria Studios was opened by the legendary Adolph Zuckor in 1920 for the Framous Players Film Company, which evolved into Famous Plaskers-Lasky and then Paramount Pictures, of which he served as president until his death in 1936.

Over 100 films were produced at Astoria during the Twenties. New York was the center of the fledgling film industry, and Astoria was the Mecca of the Silent Era. The main stage, basement stages and exterior backlot were heavily utilized, with up to six feature films in production at any given time. It was here at the Studio that the moving picture industry developed many of the techniques that were to become the conventions of production. From Valentino, Swanson, the Gish sisters and W.C. Fields, Astoria was home to the great talents of an exciting new industry. With the advent of "talkies", production at Astoria blossomed. Drawing on the wealth of writing and acting talent of Broadway, the Studio profited from its proximity to "the great white way". The Letter, the first all talking feature film shot at the Studio, earned an Oscar nomination for actress Jeanne Eagels. The talking film debuts of Claudette Colbert, Edward G. Robinson and Tallulah Bankhead were filmed here.

The Marx Brothers moved from Broadway to the silver screen in Astoria to produce their first two films–The Cocoanuts (1929) and Animal Crackers (1930).. In addition to the scores of feature films produced at Astoria, the Studio was home to the famed Paramount Newsreels ("the eyes and ears of the world"), and Paramount¹s prolific short film divisions. By the end of this period Adolf Zukor, the man who built the studio, had already moved out to California, as did much of the film industry.

At the start of WWII, in 1942 the United States Army Signal Corps Army Pictorial Service took over the studio for the making of Army training and indoctrination films, during which it became known as the Army Pictorial Center. In 1970 the Studio was declared "surplus property" by the Army and turned over to the Federal Government. In 1972, the Government offered the property to the City University of New York for use as the campus for LaGuardia Community College. The city budget crisis, however, did not allow the development to occur. Production returned to Astoria in 1975, with the leasing of the Studio for the production of Thieves and, the following year, The Next Man. he Studio was formally re-opened in 1977, under the auspices of the Astoria Motion Picture and Television Center Foundation, which acquired a lease for the property from the Government.

In 1982 the title to the Studio was transferred to the City of New York, and in 1982 real estate developer George S. Kaufman in partnership with Alan King, Johnny Carson and others, obtained the lease from the City. Kaufman proceeded to renovate, expand and revive the landmark into a full-service, comprehensive studios capable of handling any type, size and style of production.

Today, KAS is the location for major motion pictures, independent film, television shows and commercials. Telvision show credits include Sesame Street, The Cosby Show, MTV Unplugged, and Angels in America. Motion picture credits include The Wiz, The Warrios, All That Jazz, Arthur, Ragtime, Hair, Brighton Beach Memoirs, Radio Days, Money Pit, Ishtar, Fletch Lives, Glengarry Glen Ross, Scent of a Woman, Age of Innocence, and Carlito’s Way. It also houses the studios of WFAN, the nation’s first all-sports talk radio station.

Famous Players-Lasky Studio, now Kaufman’s Astoria Motion Picture and Television Center, was designated a landmark, as Paramount Studios Building No. 1, by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1978.

NYC – Queens – LIC: P.S. 1 – hallway

Image by wallyg
P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, an affiliate of The Museum of Modern Art, is the oldest and second largest non-profit arts center in the United States solely devoted to contemporary art. From its inception, P.S.1 has championed the alternative space movement through its cutting-edge approach to exhibitions and direct involvement of artists within a scholarly framework

Founded in 1971 by Alanna Heiss as The Institute of Art and Urban Resources Inc., P.S.1 was primarily dedicated to the transformation of abandoned and underutilized buildings in New York City into exhibition, performance, and studio spaces for artists. Today, P.S.1 operates two internationally acclaimed spaces for contemporary art: P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City and the Clocktower Gallery in Lower Manhattan, both of which contain museum- quality galleries and extensive studio facilities. In addition to its renowned exhibitions, the institution also organizes the prestigious International and National Projects series, the Warm Up summer music series, and the MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program with The Museum of Modern Art. It also runs WPS1, an Internet art radio station founded in 2004. P.S.1 has been affiliated with The Museum of Modern Art since January of 2000.

In 1976, Heiss opened P.S.1 Museum, now P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in a deserted Romanesque Revival building that served as the first school in Long Island City until 1960, when it was shuttered due to low attendance. In October 1997, P.S.1 reopened to the public after a three-year renovation project by Los Angeles-based architect Frederick Fisher, including a new large outdoor gallery, a dramatic entryway, and a two-story project space.

P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) formalized their affiliation in January 2000, bringing together a leader in cutting-edge art and the world’s foremost museum of modern art.

Smoke From The Fire At Guinness

Today there was a major fire at the Guinness plant in St James’s Gate plant in Dublin city centre. According to reports from local radio stations the blaze broke out when building materials being used by workmen to repair a felt roof with a torch caught fire.

Crews from six units of the Dublin Fire Brigade and aerial appliances successfully battled to bring the fire under control and stop it from spreading to a nearby ammonia plant.

Dublin Fire Brigade reported that it took 15 units about three hours to bring the flames under control. Two firefighters were in stable condition at the nearby St. James Hospital after inhaling what colleagues suspected was ammonia gas.
