We chose Blagoje Bersa’s music Sunčana polje because of its lyricism. The cello performs it gently, passionately, and at times goes into the lago of the violin. Tesla loved the sound of the violin, he loved art, so we could call him a kind of art scientist” expires Ana Rucner adds that she is extremely proud to be able to present a true genius whose inventions are eternal at her concerts in the World.So is Ana Rucner, after the video in honor Sinjske Alke – Alkar pride, as well as the video recorded in Kopački Rit In The Rythm Of Bolero, Greetings to the summer in Dubrovnik and many other examples, collaborations with various KUDs, once again showed how a kind of “ambassador” of Croatian tourism and her contribution gave her personal stamp to Croatian identity, culture, customs and tourism, and yet all in Croatian promotion service. ”For me, Croatia is the most beautiful country in the world, we have more than 1000 islands and many natural beauties.

first_img The Burnley manager said: “I spent half-an-hour with Arsene Wenger and Steve Bould after the match last week and he had a wry smile when I told him our wage bill compared to his own. “If we had £30million to spend it would probably ruin the club because you have to find the wages to support that level of signings. In my view I am not only a manager but I am also a custodian of a club that has been here since 1882. “Players at the top end of the Championship are now earning unbelievable money and as soon as you go into the Premier League clubs are asking astronomical fees – you are not talking about adding a million or two but an extra £10million.” Burnley’s most recent accounts showed their 2012-13 wage bill was £15.4million, by far the lowest in the top flight. Arsenal’s most recent accounts show their wage bill is more than 10 times that figure, £166.4million while top payers Manchester City’s was £233.1million. Burnley’s next attempt to find that elusive win comes on Saturday when Hull visit Turf Moor and Dyche said Tigers boss Steve Bruce had told him it is becoming ever more difficult for Championship clubs to bridge the gap in the top flight. The three promoted clubs are currently propping up the bottom of the table. Dyche added: “Many managers I’ve spoken to including Steve Bruce believe it’s getting harder for teams promoted from the Championship. They tell me the gap is getting wider and look at what even teams like Hull have spent recently.” Burnley do at least have one positive piece of injury news with Steven Reid is expected to be fit for Saturday. Burnley boss Sean Dyche will not risk the club’s future by embarking on a lavish spending spree in January despite their lowly position. Press Associationcenter_img The Clarets are bottom of the Premier League with four points from 10 games and still without a win this season, with their last match a 3-0 defeat at Arsenal. Dyche said splashing out £30million on new signings in the transfer window would “probably ruin the club” because of the pressure that would put on the wage bill, and insists he is unconcerned by the spectre of unwanted records, not least the 11 points Derby only managed to secure in the entire 2007-8 season. last_img read more
