  • Villa Vulin was named the leading luxury boutique hotel in Croatia and Europe

    first_imgBritish LUX Life magazine as part of the Global Luxury Hotel & Spa award for 2018, he chose five-star hotel in Pula, Villa Vulin as the leading luxury hotel in Croatia.The Global Luxury Hotel & Spa Awards is designed to recognize companies, brands and individuals with a growing luxury hospitality industry – those who go above and beyond. “It is confirmed that only persistent work and uncompromising direction can achieve top results. He thanks his team for their commitment, because without teamwork we would not be what we are. In the class of our hotel, currently no posthat world award that we did not win. This is our gift to our beloved city of Pula”Proudly points out the owner and director of the hotel Vaso Vulin. By the way, the mentioned recognition is just another in a series for the Pula hotel Villa Vulin, because only last year it received a total of 10 recognitions and valuable awards. Among the most important is certainly the one from the International Hotel Awards 2017-2018 in London, where Villa Vulin was named the best small hotel in Europe, and the best small five-star hotel by Croatian standards, and the icing on the cake was at the Oscars in the hotel industry in St. Moritz.These are the biggest trophies so far, ie the recognition that a small hotel in the world has, points out Vaso Vulin and adds that he is very satisfied that all the work and effort after so many years has borne fruit. “It will be a beautiful legacy for my family, but also a great honor for our city, the whole of Istria and Croatia. At the same time, it is a great obligation to continue to maintain the quality of our service at a high level. ” says Vulin.But as we all know how often it is harder to maintain the same level of service and defend the title of best in a particular category, I was interested in what the “formula for success” is and how to maintain the same level of service. As Vaso Vulin points out, the magic formula for this success and keeping the service at a high level are personal limits, perseverance, striving for perfection, culture and the goal that every hotelier sets for himself. “One of the most important points I had was positioning and creating a brand, first of all in Croatia, and then in Europe and the world. And that requires hard work for at least three years, with a good knowledge of management. Of course, there is always the question of investment, not only material but also other aspects recognized by guests from around the world, but it must always be based on simple and “perfect” things. Whoever sets himself the priority of profit and earnings, will not go beyond his own threshold, such a philosophy is a utopia, these are just some of the elements that make magic, of course with the city itself which is beautiful, beaches, kindness, region, state .. “Vulin points out and adds that the key is the synergy of all tourist participants because everyone has to work together to achieve the result, because one man is not able to do everything alone.It is interesting how Vulin metaphorically described and set the whole story, like digging a mine. ” If we were to compare business to a mine, and that is certainly a mine, then I chose platinum, and I had to behave that way. Tracking all world trends, but not plagiarism but a focus on authenticity and uniqueness. “Says Vulin.By the way, Villa Vulin is the first facility with a high level of 5-star service in Pula, and the logical question is whether Pula is ready for accommodation at that high level as well as the content and offer for such demanding guests. According to Vulin, Pula certainly has a lot of potential, but above all it lacks such important synergies of all participants. ” Pula certainly has potential and a story that can attract guests of high purchasing power, but the results would be much better if the tourist boards, HGK, agencies and everyone else act united and enlarged because we all have the same goal, which is quality strategic tourism development. ” concludes Vulin.last_img read more

  • Psychologist who pioneered effects of divorce dies

    first_imgWashington Post 7 July 2012  Judith Wallerstein, psychologist who pioneered research on divorce, dies at 90 In 1970, preschool teachers asked Marin County, Calif., psychologist Judith Wallerstein how to deal with a rash of children who couldn’t sleep, cried constantly or were too aggressive with playmates. The common denominator, the teachers said, was that the parents were divorcing. Dr. Wallerstein looked for research on the issue and, finding nothing useful, decided to conduct her own. She launched what would become a 25-year investigation, producing alarming findings that made her, a long-married grandmother of five, a polarizing figure in a contentious national debate.Once described by Time magazine as the “godmother of the backlash against divorce,” Dr. Wallerstein died June 18 in the Bay Area city of Piedmont, Calif., after surgery for an intestinal blockage, said her daughter Amy Wallerstein Friedman. She was 90.  When Dr. Wallerstein began looking at the effects of divorce, she thought the children’s difficulties would be fleeting. Instead, she found that for half of the 131 children she studied, time did not heal their wounds but allowed them to fester, creating “worried, under-achieving, self-deprecating and sometimes angry young men and women” who, not surprisingly, struggled considerably with romantic relationships.In light of this delayed effect, Dr. Wallerstein came to a controversial conclusion: If parents could swallow their misery, they should stay together for their kids. “What in many instances may be the best thing for the parents may by no means be the best thing for the children,” she told Newsday in 1994. “It is a real moral problem.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/judith-wallerstein-psychologist-who-pioneered-research-on-divorce-dies-at-90/2012/07/05/gJQAlU2mRW_story.htmllast_img read more

  • Five things that Brave New World got terrifyingly right

    first_imgThe Telegraph 25 November 20131) The tyranny of “happiness” 2) Drugging the populaceThe people of Brave New World are kept chilled with a drug called soma. Described as having “all of the advantages of Christianity and alcohol [and] none of their defects”, it’s a psychoactive drug that induces feelings of calm, thus negating any need to discover and potentially tackle the true source of one’s sorrow. Soma subdues all “malice and bad tempers”. Modern society uses antidepressants in a disturbingly similar way. This week a report discovered that prescriptions for antidepressants have “surged across the rich world”. A British psychiatrist is worried that antidepressants are being dished out not to combat serious depression but merely to “get rid of unhappiness”. Ritalin use among children has “soared” in Britain, as parents and doctors take to drugging kids who seem overly pesky. As in Brave New World, we prefer to supress “malice and bad tempers” with drugs rather than ask what travails might lie behind such emotions and how they might be addressed.3) The fashion for euthanasiaIn Brave New World, death is celebrated. Most of those who reach 60, and become economically useless, are euthanised. Hearses are “gaily coloured”. People are sent to die in comfortable, primrose-coloured apartment blocks, which are “alive with gay synthetic melodies” and where there’s a TV at the foot of every bed. Today, people aren’t euthanised en masse, of course, but there is a fashion for euthanasia, or what we must now bizarrely call “the right to die”, particularly in liberal-leaning circles. The bright, gay death centres of Brave New World find their equivalent in the euthanasia clinics of modern Europe, where one can request a “good death” in comfortable surroundings if one is suffering from a terminal illness or, in the case of Belgium, simply from depression. Baroness Warnock has said elderly people should ask themselves if they have a “duty to die”, because “if you are demented… you are wasting the resources of the NHS”. A Times columnist recently said we should legalise voluntary euthanasia in order to address society’s “unaffordable explosion in dementia and age-related illness”. That isn’t a million miles from Brave New World’s use of euthanasia to limit the number of resource-sucking sick people and keep the economy healthy.4) Malthusian miserabilism5) Bashing the familyIn Brave New World, promiscuity is encouraged and family life is frowned upon. The family is viewed as a drain on people’s creativity. Having a family demands “a narrow channelling of impulse and energy”, officials insist, as they mock “the frictions of tightly packed [family] life, reeking with emotion”. Today, too, the family is sneered at. Feminists depict it as a site of abuse, especially of women and children; bookshop shelves creak with misery memoirs about wicked mothers and violent fathers; Cameron complains of Britain’s thousands of “chaotic families”, who apparently need state guidance. The number of people across the globe who live alone rather than as part of a family unit has “skyrocketed”, rising from 153 million in 1996 to 280 million today. As in Brave New World, today not only are we surrounded by misanthropy, authoritarianism and emotion-modifying drugs in public life, but even that once quiet, private sphere of family life, that old heart in a heartless world, is being thoroughly undermined.http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/brendanoneill2/100247159/five-things-that-brave-new-world-got-terrifyingly-right/last_img read more
