Air Serbia’s 1st Birthday

Congratulations to Air Serbia for celebrating it’s first birthday.  Air Serbia was created from the old and famous all of us know as JAT.  We the help of Etihad Airlines, who own a 49 percent stake in the company, Serbia’s latest air transport company should be one of the top companies in Europe.  One thing JAT had and Air Serbia does not as of yet, is flights to North America.  Hopefully that should be on it’s way soon as they have recently been approved to fly into the United States.  We would guess that John F. Kennedy in New York and Ohare in Chicago would be one of the first airports to welcome an Air Serbia aircraft.  Some of Serbia’s finest even have planes named after them, such as Novak Djokovic and Vlade Divac.  We wish Air Serbia a successful future.

This year’s conference “Let’s Create the Tesla Curriculum” signifies the original platform for Tesla Science Foundation, whose main goal is to incorporate the legacy of Nikola Tesla into the official school curriculum in the United States and around the world. This year we are preparing a first class line-up of expert presenters and we will update you with the final list of participants by mid-October. In the meantime we welcome your suggestions, leads and ideas – and please put this important event on your calendar!

A Brick for Nik: Forever Becoming a Part of the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe

Nikola Tesla’s last remaining laboratory was about to be scrapped and turned into a shopping center, thanks to all of his fans the world turned a wrong into a right and now, slowly but surely, Tesla’s laboratory will become the Tesla Science Center.  On August 15th 2012 theoatmeal.com did a comic piece on Nikola Tesla, “Why Nikola Tesla was the was the greatest geek who ever lived.”  There was a call for action to donate to the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe. On May 2nd 2013 Tesla’s laboratory was saved.  The property was bought for $850.00 and well over a million dollars has been donated.  Today the property is in good hands but the building and the land around the building needs to be updated.  The most recent campaign was started in September 2014 to raise more money.  “A Brick for Nik” is your chance to become a part of history and help keep Tesla’s memory alive.  A great idea to permenantly be a part of history and have your family name presented to the millions of people who will tread on the walkway leading to the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe in Shoreham, NY.

Lidija Slavkovic’s “A Plan: Vacation” Exhibition in NYC

     If you’re in NYC during October check out Lidija Slavkovic’s exhibition in Studio Vendome Projects.  

A Plan: Vacation, Lidija Slavkovic’s first New York exhibition, will be on view at Studio Vendome Projects (30 Grand Street, New York, NY) from October 22 – November 22, 2014. The exhibition will include drawings of landscapes made with acrylic, graphite, charcoal pencil, and coffee.

The title of the exhibition A Plan: Vacation has a double meaning – the most obvious is one’s associations with seascapes and landscapes as vacation destinations. The more important aspect is that the title reflects how Slavkovic thinks about retrieving her imagery from what are generally considered “Landscapes,” and therefore immediately being reduced to metaphor.

“I see my work as an object of attention, in that the work is a reflection of my relationship to some ‘thing’,” says Slavkovic. “I acknowledge that my concept is only an impermanent objectification of sensation, thus I think of my drawings not as an art work but as the result of the work of art.”

Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Slavkovic earned a BFA in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade in 1999. She lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia and Miami, Florida.
