Airport City Belgrade

Airport City Belgrade is a business park and a commercial neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is a multi-use commercial facility, located in the municipality of New Belgrade. Airport City is located in New Belgrade's Block 65, in the area known as Dojno Polje. To the east and northeast it borders the neighborhoods of Bežanijska Kosa; the Tošin Bunar Street marks the east border of the neighborhood, Omladinskih Brigada the northeast and Djordja Stojanovića the south. On the north there are other facilities in the Block 65, including the residential complex West 65 and the headquarters of the N1 Television. Southwest from Airport City is the vast, former industrial complex, which includes the factories like the Industry of Machinery and Tractors and the Industry of Metal Castings. In the vicinity, in the southeast direction are the neighborhood of Belville and the Delta City shopping mall. West of Bežanija and 2 km south of Zemun, between the village and the Sava river, is the location of the old Belgrade airport, finished in March 1927.

The locality was called Dojno Polje. As it is located along the Tošin Bunar Street, though administratively part of the village of Bežanija at the time, the airport is referred to as both the Bežanija Airport and Airport on Tošin Bunar. Construction of an airfield began in 1923. An initiative asked for the creation of the airline company in 1926, approved by the government on 23 March 1926; the initial public offering began but failed as only 10% of the planned amount was gathered. According to the existing laws, the airline company was to be closed before it was formed. In order to boost the sale of the shares, pilot Tadija Sondermajer decided to conduct the promotional flight Paris-Bombay-Belgrade. With his colleague Leonid Bajdak, he started the journey on 20 April 1927 from Paris, arriving back to Belgrade after 11 days and 14.800 km, on 8 May. They were awaited as heroes by the crowd of 30,000; the sale of the shares was boosted and in three months there were sufficient funds for the company, named Aeroput and established on 17 June 1927, to purchase its first 4 airplanes.

New administrative building was constructed in 1931 and to celebrate the occasion, a big air show of the biplanes was held. It was destroyed by the Germans in 1944, became defunct in 1962 when the new airport near the village of Surčin was finished. In April 2016 works began on the construction of the access road to the Ada Bridge. During works on the new boulevard, remnants of the old airport's runway and warehouses were discovered. Construction of Airport City began on 4 May 2005. In the first phase, a total of 4 buildings, out of planned 14, has been built. A second phase began. By March 2009 further 3 buildings were finished, or a total of 72,000 m2 out of planned 186.000 m2. By December 2016, 9 buildings were finished, it was announced that the capacity of the complex will be expanded to 230,000 m2. The project is called "city within a city", spreading over an area of 14 ha, it is the first multi-use commercial facility in Serbia that merges the latest in building technology, together with a tenant-focused approach.

Complex consist of six 6-storey, one 10-storey, two 11-storey buildings. The last phase, which started in 2017 will have 14 - and two 23-storey buildings. Mercedes-Benz, DHL, Siemens and other companies are located close to ACB in Novi Beograd, an emerging Central Business District; the buildings are located near the Euro-Motorway E-75. Several lines of transportation are planned for day-and-night travel. Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport is ten minutes away by car.

Jack Savoretti

Giovanni "Jack" Savoretti is an English solo acoustic singer of Italian descent. He has released six studio albums to date: Between the Minds, Harder Than Easy, Before the Storm, Written in Scars, Sleep No More and Singing to Strangers. Singing to Strangers became his first no.1 on the UK Albums Chart. Born in Westminster to an Italian father and half-German, half-Polish mother, Savoretti grew up in London, before moving to Lugano, a Swiss city near the Italian border. Moving around Europe as a child, he ended up at the American School in Switzerland where he picked up an accent he describes as "transatlantic mutt"; as a teenager, he was interested only in poetry. "I was writing all the time, it was the thing to do, sit under a tree with a notebook, go somewhere else in your head. I was in the clouds." When his mother gave him a guitar and suggested he try putting some of his words to music he was "surprised how much more people listen to you when you are singing than if you read a poem". "After that, I couldn't stop, it was constant writing, every day, it became a form of conversation, the way I interact with the world."

He began playing guitar at 16. Savoretti did two duets with Shelly Poole called "Anyday Now" and "Hope", both of which appear on Poole's album Hard Time for the Dreamer, released in September 2005. Jack was signed to De-angelis Productions when he was 18 years of age and subsequently signed to De-angelis Records, a label set up by Anne Barrett and Eric Ramon. Rick Barraclough joined De-angelis in 2005 and produced the first two albums Between the Minds and Harder than Easy; the label contracted Nick Fleming's radio promotions company who introduced Savoretti to Radio 2 where his album Between The Minds became the album of the week. De-angelis flew Savoretti out to the US where Sue Crawhsaw, working for De-angelis, publishing set up a showcase at Fox film studios, where he performed and became the darling for many Film and Television Supervisors. During this time the label suggested to the MD of Cafe Nero Paul Ettinger that Jack do a tour of the cafes, becoming the first label to come up with this marketing idea.

Graham Stokes, consulting for De-angelis suggested that De-angelis should approach the new Grammy award-winner Corinne Bailey Rae's management to have Savoretti as the support act for Corinne's upcoming European tour. Further to that tour Jack supported Gavin De Graw on a European tour. Savoretti parted ways with De-angelis in 2010. Savoretti released his first single on 9 October 2006, called "Without"; the video, filmed in Mallorca was directed by Oscar-nominated director Bobby Garabedian. The single charted at number 90 in the UK Singles Chart and was B-Listed on BBC Radio 2, his second single, "Dreamers", was less successful. Savoretti was spotted by Corinne Bailey Rae, who invited Savoretti to perform with her on her European tour, his album gained support on Radio 2. The album Between the Minds was released in March 2007, it débuted at number 5 on the UK indie charts. On 6 August 2007 he made his television debut on GMTV, where he performed "Dr Frankenstein". Throughout February and March 2008, Savoretti embarked on a solo mini-tour of Caffè Nero bars in the UK.

After his Caffe Nero tour he re-released his debut album Between the Minds with a bonus disc with unplugged versions of some of his songs, three new songs, as well as a live cover version of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" on 31 March 2008. Four days on 4 April 2008, he made another television performance, performing "Gypsy Love" on This Morning. Savoretti joined Steve Booker to write the A-side to his single, "Gypsy Love", which captures the sincerity of Savoretti's song writing. Songs such as the A side of his single "One Man Band" are a testament to how he has spent the beginning of the year and an expression of the ability to showcase his voice without the support of a full band. Two of his songs featured in series 5 of the hit TV series One Tree Hill. "Between the Minds" was featured in the episode "Cryin' Won't Help You Now", "No One's Aware" was featured in the episode "What Do You Go Home To?" "No One's Aware" was featured in the film The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, released in August in the US and was released in the UK in January 2009.

His song "Chemical Courage" was featured on the A&E television series The Cleaner. The track "Soldier's Eyes" from Between the Minds played over the closing credits of the second episode of the fifth series of Sons of Anarchy. Savoretti toured Europe with Gavin DeGraw after he approached Savoretti asking him to be his support act. To coincide with Savoretti supporting DeGraw, Savoretti's debut album, Between the Minds, was released on all European iTunes Stores. Savoretti's second album, Harder Than Easy, was due for release on 6 July 2009; the album release was postponed and it was released in North America on 15 September 2009. On 14 April a new song called "Him & Her" was released through gigwise.com as a free download to launch the new album. Savoretti wrote the track "One Day" for the American film Post Grad, a version of "One Day" is performed in the film by Zach Gilford's character. A "One Day" music video featuring Post Grad footage was released; the film was released in the USA on 21 August 2009.

On 2 November 2010, Savoretti announced via Facebook that he was in London working on his third album. He spent most of 2011 debuting many new songs. On 2 February 2012 Savoretti released the song "Hate & Love", featur

Noctiluca scintillans

Noctiluca scintillans known as the sea sparkle, published as Noctiluca miliaris, is a free-living, marine-dwelling species of dinoflagellate that exhibits bioluminescence when disturbed. Its bioluminescence is produced throughout the cytoplasm of this single-celled protist, by a luciferin-luciferase reaction in thousands of spherically shaped organelles, called scintillons. N. scintillans is large for a dinoflagellate with a diameter of 0.2–2 mm, though most are around 0.5 mm. It has a ventral groove that holds a flagellum, an extension of the cell wall called a tooth, a striated tentacle involved in ingestion that projects posteriorly; the flagellum does not move the organism, so the nonmotile N. scintillans depends on regulation of its buoyancy within the water column – by controlling its cellular concentration of ions and ammonia. N. scintillans produces a string of mucus extending from the tip of the tentacle which adheres to plankton and ascends through concentrations of its prey in the water column.

N. scintillans is a heterotroph that engulfs, by phagocytosis, food which includes plankton, other dinoflagellates, fish eggs, bacteria. Diatoms are found in the vacuoles within these single-celled creatures; these green nonfeeding symbioses can grow photoautotrophically for generations. Diatoms of Thalassiosira have been noted as a favored food source of these organisms. N. scintillans can be found distributed throughout the world along the coast, in estuaries, shallow areas of the continental shelf that receive plenty of light, which promotes the growth of the phytoplankton that make up a large portion of the N. scintillans diet. Noctiluca species are unusual among dinoflagellates in appearing to have a diplontic life cycle. N. scintillans populations can exhibit high concentrations due to high concentrations of the plankton on which they feed, which are due to environmental conditions such as well-mixed, nutrient-rich waters, seasonal circulation, runoff from agricultural pollution. The glow produced by N. scintillans organisms can be perceived by humans as ghostly colored glow or bloom in the water, which appears when the water is disturbed.

This gives N. scintillans the popular names "sea ghost" or "fire of sea". Bloom color derives from the pigments of organisms inside the vacuoles of N. scintillans. Blooms are red in coastal areas of the North Sea. Green tides result from N. scintillans populations having green-pigmented prasinophytes living in their vacuoles. N. scintillans does not appear to be toxic, but it feeds voraciously on phytoplankton, while doing so, it accumulates and excretes high levels of ammonia into the surrounding water. This may add to the neurotoxins produced by other dinoflagellates, such as Alexandrium or Gonyaulax spp. that kill off other aquatic life in the area. DNA sequence comparisons suggest. Spatulodinium pseudonoctiluca seems to be more related to N. scintillans than to other Spatulodinium species. N. Scintillans is placed within a classification scheme that has a class Diniferea, or Dinophyceae, which includes nonparasitic dinoflagellates that lack armor plating. "Noctiluca scintillans".
