Romana Lekić, Ph.D.: Communication is a basic prerequisite for tourism development

first_imgMobility and hospitality were two key concepts at the roots of many mythologies and today are the essence of tourism. Hospitality once meant the cessation of conflict or the root of hostility, and therefore myths are important for the way society will understand its existence in this world. We learn from myths that not hosting a stranger was a sin and that meant incurring the wrath of the gods. Hospitality in the true sense of the word allows the guest a certain degree of closeness to the host, the natural and cultural environment. The essence of tourism is that the visitor seeks social contacts that are honest and even intimate in an environment that is unusual and attractive. Tourists should be allowed to be more than an observer and to become real actors in their journey by establishing social contact with the local population. The exchange, because the tourist is also a transmitter of his spirit and culture, enables better mutual understanding. Communication is a basic prerequisite for tourism development It is important not to lose sight of the fact that human behavior and customs, as well as tourism and the need for rest, are typified in the myths of all civilizations. On this evolutionary path, sustainable tourism has the power of transformation, ie liberation, so that its main goal is to change tourists / travelers but also service providers, ie the local community from passive beings within the phenomenon of tourism – into subjects, into exchanges of tourist events. achieved true communication with tourists. When a member of one culture creates a symbol, message or information for another member of another, different cultures and their interaction and communication is actually intercultural communication. In contact with the “other” value systems are often destroyed, changed or supplemented, the individual’s horizons are broadened, stereotypes are erased and finally – persons or individuals change through intercultural communication, and this is the most important thing in intercultural communication, ie cognition. modifying and changing. In cultural contact in a tourist destination, it is important to distinguish between the local population and their culture; tourists and tourist culture (common to most tourists); residual culture (unique to each tourism market), tourism workers (who provide services to tourists and act as intermediaries between the host and guest population) and their managerial and business culture, etc.  Photo: Pexels.com / Illustration: HrTurizam.hr As the world becomes more connected, globalized and liberal, and culturally and anthropologically more developed – it survives only in diversity and pluralism, not in sameness and monism, so in this sense intercultural communication – in tourism and beyond – becomes necessary and necessary. for many individuals, or for an increasing number of people.  The development of tourism began in the 19th century and with its leisure philosophy it followed the technological development so that it became a market for several types of entertainment. In the name of happiness, the society of hyperconsumption is expanding, so tourism is becoming more massive, however, although it is produced and consumed, we are increasingly entering a crisis of materialistic culture of happiness where the gap between rich and poor deepens, closeness is lost and new technologies bringing people together becomes a means of alienation. Therefore, a situation occurs in which, by communicating interculturally, individuals respect each other and, by looking at each other, see themselves as they really are. This component of tourism is actually a sociological and anthropological category of self-knowledge. In tourism, communication can take place on several levels and in several dimensions. Through tourism and local culture, we send a message to the world with words, images and figures that stem from our history and point to the appeal of the space for all those creatives and curious people who strive for an authentic experience of original values. The emphasis is on originality and identity because they are written in our cellular memory and collective memory. Sending and receiving messages is reflected in the identity, attitudes and opinions of an individual who is original and unique. center_img Today, travelers are motivated by the desire to get to know a culture different from their own in a place that cannot be replaced by any other tourist destination – Dr. sc. Romana Lekić Intercultural communication as a form of communication that takes place in tourism, it represents communication between different cultures, more precisely between people who come from different countries and cities or cultures and make mutual contacts and interaction in a certain area. Such communication involves the interaction of people whose cultural perceptions and symbolic systems are different enough to change the act of communication. . At the very beginning, communication is needed to present the offer to a potential tourist and during the stay of tourists in the destination. Thus, communication has an important role in the development of tourism because it serves not only to communicate and transmit information but also to get to know the culture and create interpersonal relationships. Tourism mixes people and cultures, forms and forces unique to each individual local community, ie tourists, and a better understanding of these cultures will lead us to understand tourism as a factor of change in the community and beyond – tourism in this way gets transformative and healing power – dr. sc. Romana Lekić Author: dr. Sc. Romana Lekić, Assistant Dean for Tourism Studies at Edward Bernays College of Communication Management in Zagreb In 2010, the European Commission recognized tourism as a means of strengthening the cohesion of European citizens by encouraging contacts and exchanges between countries and people, regardless of differences in language, culture or tradition. The European Tourism Forum in 2013. suggests tourism as “A POWER FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH, SOCIAL CHANGE AND WELL-BEING”.  The criteria of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) point out that for the practice of sustainable tourism it is important to meet the criteria of respect for local culture and tradition so that foreign visitors need to learn local behavior, language and culture, but also the local population learns about different expectations. Furthermore, as the UNWTO points out, we should strive for quality, not quantity, and that the success of tourism can be measured by the length of stay, consumption and quality of the tourist experience, and not just the number of visitors and the number of nights. Also, UNWTO emphasizes satisfaction, because a satisfied visitor when he returns home, will recommend an unforgettable destination to his relatives and friends, which allows further business of these destinations, therefore increasingly emphasizing the quality of tourist experience and experience based on authenticity and tradition. last_img read more

BORDER BATTLE: UW to take on Golden Gophers

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoWith hopes to solidify its NCAA Tournament r?sum? and avenge a home loss to their longtime rivals, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team heads to Minnesota to take on the Golden Gophers at The Barn tonight.The teams’ last match turned from a Badger blowout to a classic Border Battle contest, as the Golden Gophers came back from a 14-point second half deficit to beat the Badgers at the Kohl Center in overtime, 78-74.At that time, Minnesota was the 17th-ranked team in the country , sitting at 16-1, an unprecedented start for a program UM head coach Tubby Smith has overturned over the past two seasons.“It was a very tough loss for us,” UW guard Jason Bohannon said. “Looking back on it, we had a [nine]-point lead or something with a couple minutes to go and you know, anytime we let a team get on a run like that and get back in the game with that much time remaining, it’s tough.”Now, however, the two teams have switched positions. The first match Jan. 15 was the second of six straight losses for the Badgers. But with a big 60-55 win over Michigan on Sunday, the Badgers have picked up their game to win six of their last seven contests.“Obviously, we learned from it,” Wisconsin forward Joe Krabbenhoft said. “We know how Minnesota wants to play and figured out Tubby Smith defensively, and we learned how we need to take care of the ball. They came from [14 points] down with a couple minutes to go; we just got to take care of the ball.”In that game, Minnesota’s Lawrence Westbrook picked apart the Wisconsin defense, scoring 29 points, including a game-tying 3-pointer that sent the game into overtime. While the Badgers will need to focus on Westbrook, the Gophers also have several other players capable of having big games.“They’ve got a lot of weapons,” UW assistant coach Gary Close said. “I mean [Westbrook] was the one that night, but they’ve got a lot of different weapons — that’s why they’re good. He was the guy the other night, but that’s not to say it couldn’t be someone else; there are a lot of guys we’ve got to guard.”“He had a big stretch those last couple of minutes and overtime,” Bohannon added. “He’s another player out there; we’re not going to treat him any different from what we do, our same principles and stuff, and we just got to contain him like we do with every single player on the floor.”The Badgers have good reason to be confident with their defense as of late. Against Michigan, they held the Big Ten’s leading scorer — Manny Harris — to 5-of-14 shooting and only 1-for-6 from 3-point range.“It’s going to be the same principles we use against Manny,” Krabbenhoft said. “Just go out there and stick to him. It usually works when we stick to him and do things the right way. The players are going to make plays — that’s just part of the game. You just keep playing and try to get it back on the other end of the court.”Now, though, while much of the focus is placed on both teams hoping to receive NCAA Tournament bids, the players are not so concerned with the Border Battle mentality. Instead, they are looking to take the rivalry and motivate it to boost their tournament r?sum?.“We’re just taking it one game at a time, trying to build our r?sum?,” Bohannon said. “We got to go in there and get a win; it’s going to be a tough environment. Each possession is going to matter. We can’t take one possession off because that could mean the game. That one possession made the difference last game.”Furthermore, the team continues to downplay the rivalry, especially with such a tough schedule. While they know the Gophers will come out particularly amped for the Border Battle, according to Bohannon, the Badgers are trying to think of it as just another tough conference match.“It’s a great rivalry, but you know it’s another game, another Big Ten game,” Bohannon said. “They just happen to be next on our schedule. We’ve got to come ready to play, it should be a good game for us.”As for playing in The Barn, the players are not too concerned with how to react to the Gopher fans. Regardless, they are expecting the worst, especially in a rivalry game.“That’s a terrific home environment, but hopefully we’ll do the things we need to do to keep our advantage, but any time you go on the road that could be a factor,” Close said.“The crowd’s going to sound a little different, the arena’s going to look a little different, but we just go out there and play,” Krabbenhoft added. “We’re just going to treat it like we have the others and go out there and play the same ball we’ve been playing.”last_img read more

Maintenance worker wins over students

first_img“Cool.” “Chill.” “Easy to talk to.” These were all words various student workers at Webb and Fluor Towers used to describe charismatic maintenance worker Oziel “Ozzy” Albarran. Despite being much older than most of the students he meets, Albarran is beloved by residents for his easygoing demeanor and genuine desire to connect.100-watt smile · Oziel Albarran flashes a grin for the camera. Albarran has been working at USC’s Flour and Webb towers for the past seven years. – Photo courtesy of Oziel Albarran“He feels just like another student. It’s just easy to talk to him,” said Gina Ibrahim, a junior double majoring in psychology and cognitive science.Albarran, 30, frequently chats with student workers at Fluor and Webb Towers when he is not busy with work. From helping students get haircuts to giving out life advice, many students have a story to tell about Albarran and how he has helped them through rough patches, or simply made their day a little more entertaining.Albarran has been especially influential to junior Rubi Garcia, an American studies major. Albarran helped Garcia realize how fortunate she was to be studying abroad, even though she will be going to Chile instead of her first choice, Brazil. This happened one day by accident when Garcia was on her way to work at the check-in desk at Webb Tower, and Albarran ran into her and realized something was on her mind.“Even though what he said was common sense, at the moment I guess just hearing how right he was, that basically just made my whole day,” Garcia said. “He really does know the students, like he automatically picked up that something was wrong with me.”Adrian Johnson, a sophomore majoring in business administration who also works at Fluor and Webb Towers, said Albarran once gave him dating advice. On another occasion, Albarran even helped Johnson with his hair.“My hair was real bad; it was real nappy. He took me down to his barber shop on Central Avenue, and his barber hooked me up. It was a good time,” Johnson said.Albarran, has been a custodian at Fluor and Webb Towers for the entire seven years he has worked at USC, starting when he was 23 years old. Albarran said he chose to work at USC because they offer employees tuition benefits, but he truly enjoys the college atmosphere and being surrounded by so many young people all the time.Albarran once helped junior Raul Alcantar, a cinema and television production major who is a student supervisor at Fluor and Webb Towers, complete an assignment on how immigrants assimilate into America. Albarran was born in Mexico and came to the United States when he was eight months old.“So I did an interview on him, how he came to the U.S. He actually sat down and opened up about his whole experience,” Alcantar said.Family has also been an important aspect of Albarran’s life. He is currently raising two sons who both attend school in Los Angeles. Albarran is working hard to make sure they will have the financial means to go wherever they want for college.“If I graduated from here it would be awesome if my two kids graduated from here, just to keep it going,” Albarran said.Albarran has been going to college for a year and a half. Currently, he attends night classes at Santa Monica College. Though he chose to major in accounting because it has a relatively high level of job security, Albarran said he originally considered industrial design.In the future, Albarran plans to transfer to USC, where he aims to focus specifically on his core accounting courses. He hopes to be done with school by the time he is 35.“My oldest son would be about 12, and my little guy would be 10. They’ll be old enough where, even if I have to work like a billion hours, they won’t really miss me,” Albarran said.Seeing student life at USC when he first started working is what Albarran said actually inspired him to go back to school. Through his job, he was able to witness the fun side of college and realized that it was not all studying. Speaking with students also altered Albarran’s perception that college is only for “super geniuses.” He realized that if the people he met here could earn college degrees, then so could he.Albarran said he feels grateful to his family members for being his support network and allowing him to easily juggle work, family and school. Though he has a lot on his plate, Albarran said he does not usually feel overwhelmed because he always tries to look at the bigger picture.“Life is pretty easy,” Albarran said. “We just choose to make it difficult.” Follow us on Twitter @dailytrojanlast_img read more

Oshae Brissett settles in, other notes from Syracuse’s 71-62 win over Iona

first_img Published on November 14, 2017 at 10:59 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21 Facebook Twitter Google+ During a timeout, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim told freshman forward Oshae Brissett a screen would come his way from the weak side.“OK, coach,” Boeheim recalled Brissett saying in the team huddle.“He ran right into the screen,” Boeheim said later. “He said, ‘Well, I tried.’ I said it’s not good enough to try. You have to go around the screen and be there. But that’s what happens when you have freshmen. They’re not going to be able to do some of those things.”Brissett, Syracuse’s 6-foot-8 freshman forward represents the youth of SU this season, Boeheim said. Brissett has said he is nervous in the beginning of games, which contributes to why many of his first shots are too strong. In Syracuse’s (2-0) 71-62 victory over Iona (0-2) Tuesday night inside the Carrier Dome, Brissett did not work around the screen Boeheim warned about, nor did he knock down any of his first three shots.“Still learning,” Brissett said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe progressed in the game, hitting on four of his next six shots for 12 points across 37 minutes on the floor. Given that redshirt freshman forward Matthew Moyer has not contributed much offensively — he scored zero points in 18 minutes Tuesday — Brissett provides the bulk of Syracuse’s scoring at the forward position.Boeheim said Brissett’s next step is attacking the basket with more effectiveness and crashing the boards. He lost possession of the ball on his first drive attempt of the second half, going left on the baseline. A few possessions later, he knocked down a pull-up jumper around the free-throw line. He finished with two assists and three rebounds.Marek Dolezaj’s weight not an issueDolezaj, a 6-foot-9, 180-pound forward, played 22 minutes off the bench. He scored seven points on 3-for-5 shooting and grabbed six rebounds. He entered the game about six and half minutes in.He allowed Iona forward TK Edogi behind him on the left side of the zone, and Edogi delivered. He caught an alley-oop over Dolezaj and dunked the ball despite a foul. Later, Dolezaj traveled on his first catch near the rim, but he picked up a steal and hustled on a transition play to receive a feed from Tyus Battle and score two points.“Dolezaj goes after the ball, he really hustles,” Boeheim said. “His shooting … it’s a long ways away. Everybody talks about strength. (Syracuse 2005 first-round NBA Draft pick) Hakim Warrick weighed 160 pounds when he came in here as a freshman. He was pretty good. Never weighed more than 180. Everybody talks about weight and they want to be negative. That has nothing to do with it. He’ll be fine. He’s thin so he can move faster.”Battle, Howard play bulk of minutes at guardBattle and Howard played 35 and 40 minutes, respectively, as fellow guard Howard Washington did not play. Graduate transfer Geno Thorpe played only eight minutes because “he was terrible,” Boeheim said. Thorpe had one turnover and shot 1-for-3.Battle scored a career-high 28 points and Howard added a career-high in points of his own, 15, to go along with four rebounds and three assists.“Frank got to the basket,” Boeheim said. “I thought he had a few places where he could have played up. He never really played the point in high school … it will take him a little while to get used to it. Tonight was a good step, really good step.”Fast break defenseIona scored 10 fast-break points. The up-tempo-minded Gaels beat SU up the floor several other times but did not convert. Boeheim said after the game that SU needs to get back quicker to prevent transition baskets, which came from both long rebounds and made baskets.“Their forwards leaked out right when we got a basket,” Syracuse junior center Paschal Chukwu said. “So the centers, when we went for rebounds, they were leaking out. We just need to recognize that and definitely try and get back.” Commentslast_img read more
