Five Tips for Cursed Child’s Lucky First Years

first_imgDon’t Be a WormtailOf course you want to tell your Muggle friends about being on the inside of the exclusive wizarding world! So say how awesome it is to see one of the most beloved stories take the stage. Say that J.K. Rowling is a bloody genius (although they should know this. Otherwise, problem solved—get new friends!). Say the Palace Theatre’s velvety seats were superb on your bottom—anything but revealing the secrets of Harry Potter’s fantastical eighth (sort of) installment. No matter how compelling a storyteller you are in your group of mates, nothing will match seeing the live show. (Come on, guys, Rowling asked super nicely.) View Comments Dear Muggles, we are pleased to inform you that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child began previews in the West End on June 7! It’s happening: J.K. Rowling’s literary gamechanger has come to the stage, and fans with Felix Felicis can experience the story in an enchanting new medium. Beyond the books and films, this is an immersive inside view into the world of Harry Potter, and us Muggles are feeling like giddy First Years on the Hogwarts Express just thinking about it! However, just as with a budding wizard, there are a few things those experiencing this realm have to get straight. Here are five tips for those lucky enough to catch the two-part play at the Palace Theatre!Pop Tissues in Your Bag BeforehandIf the Potter and Weasley family photos and Jamie Parker interview vid have yet to tug at those heartstrings, you’re probably a Slytherin. J.K. Rowling tells Cursed Child-goers to be prepared to cry tears and feel feelings, and per usual, she isn’t wrong. Accio, tissues, Harry Potter fans! My adrenaline levels are starting to crash… Send Madame Pomfrey… That was so incredible. #KeepTheSecrets @HPPlayLDN— Rebecca Holbourn (@2cajuman2) June 7, 2016 Do Your Summer ReadingAll right, we’re about to go totally Hermione on you. Summer is not complete without a good beach read, and what better one than Cursed Child’s script? The book comes out July 31, the day following the West End production’s opening night (and Harry Potter’s birthday, of course). This latest story takes place 19 years after the end of Rowling’s original series; Harry, Ginny, Hermione, Ron and even Draco are all grown up with children (and soon-to-be Hogwarts students) of their own. Though Jack Thorne’s stage adaptation is a sequel, we are sure there will be nods to the story’s past.Take Us With You!This whole “Accio, tickets” thing isn’t really working (#MuggleProblems). We absolutely cannot wait to experience Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!center_img The Palace Theatre’s magical transformation for ‘Harry Potter & the Cursed Child'(Photo: Photo by Ben A.

SO THERE!”#CursedChild— Graham Miles (@GrahamKMiles) May 28, 2016 Mind the OwlsYou read that correctly! Live owls are just one of the many magical features in the enchanting play, and apparently, one, erm, took flight during the first night of previews, proving that even the most powerful backstage wizards can have technical snafus.last_img read more

Lošinj’s Jadranka group rewards employees with a Christmas bonus of 2.500 kuna

first_imgIn Jadranka Hotels, one of the subsidiaries of the Jadranka Group, the number of employees has doubled in the past 10 years. The consequence of this is an increasing number of domestic and foreign tourists who come to Lošinj every year, as well as extra-hotel facilities that try to extend the tourist season on Lošinj to the whole year. It is interesting to note that both permanent and permanent seasonal employees received Christmas bonuses, and all others in proportion to the duration of their employment. In addition to Christmas, Jadranka is once again providing her employees with a gift for children up to 15 years of age worth 600 kuna.  Jadranka Group, one of the largest tourist and trade companies in Croatia, this year again rewards the work and effort of its employees with a Christmas bonus in the amount of as much as 2.500 kuna. This salary supplement is the final confirmation of the quality work of all employees.  Jadranka Group currently employs almost 800 permanent employees, and during the tourist season this number rises to about 1.700 employees, which makes them the largest employer on Lošinj and Cres. In addition to benefits such as salary supplements, the Jadranka Group takes care of the training and education of its employees, so it invests at all levels. multimillion amounts for their development. Opportunities for additional education are numerous – from in-house workshops and internal Gastro Academy to external training programs for specialized occupations, such as concierge, sommelier, bartender and butler. center_img Photo: Jadranka group “We in the Jadranka Group firmly believe that only continuous effort and work can bring progress, but we also believe that they should be recognized and rewarded. We are extremely proud of our employees and the successes we have achieved together in the past year. We are guided by the idea that employee satisfaction is just as important as the satisfaction of our guests and customers.”, Said Sanjin Šolić, President of the Management Board of Jadranka Group.  One of the most significant moves of this tourist and trade company from Lošinj is arranging a facility to accommodate seasonal employees. Investment in a facility for the accommodation of employees, which monitors the quality level of the 4 * hotel, is the first such investment on the island of Lošinj, and is extremely important for ensuring quality accommodation. The working conditions offered by Jadranka are an excellent incentive for all those interested in working in tourism – especially during the summer months. last_img read more
