first_imgNew York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineWatchmaking skills, technical innovations and continuity are values that define Carl F. Bucherer. With the Adamavi range, the Swiss watch brand has succeeded in creating a collection that stands for the pleasure provided by timeless design and for a unique philosophy: the striving to preserve things of proven value.Since it was founded over 120 years ago, the Bucherer enterprise has remained in the sole possession of the family of the founder, Carl Friedrich Bucherer. As a result of this continuity the Carl F. Bucherer watch brand, which has been independent since 2001, has become a quality brand whose success is based on a valuable store of experience in the field of mechanical watchmaking and the art of jewelry. Although Carl F. Bucherer stands for a constant drive for innovation and a high degree of technical development, it is of great importance to the brand that proven technologies and design elements should be carried over into the future.The principle of holding on to the proven values of the past is embodied in the classic appearance of the watches in the Adamavi family. The very name Adamavi stands for a feeling that these watches trigger in the wearer: translated from the Latin, Adamavi literally means “to come to love something” or “to take pleasure in something”. Because all the models in the range are characterized by timeless simplicity and mechanical reliability, they are more than just timepieces.They are true companions whose visual appeal will outlast the short-lived trends of our present time, conferring an aura of reliability and continuity upon their owners. The pleasure of time. With their understated and enduring design, watches bearing the name of Adamavi can be worn on any occasion. These puristic timepieces have their own aesthetic continuity, and therefore represent real value that is certain and timeless. Value that will also provide lasting pleasure for the wearer.One striking model in the Adamavi family is the Adamavi Pavé, perfectly executed in 18 K rose gold. The dial and bezel are set with sparkling diamonds, arranged in circles from the center outwards. In combination with the gold-colored baton markers, they suggest a shimmering sun whose radiant power lasts forever. As will your pleasure in a watch from the Adamavi range. A watch you will certainly never want to give away.www.carl-f-bucherer.comlast_img

Game 7, 3:30 p.m. EDT, ABCNEED TO KNOW: A series that had a four-overtime game is going to go the distance, and that’s fitting. Portland’s two top scorers, Lillard and CJ McCollum, have combined for 311 points in the series. Denver’s two top scorers, Jokic and Jamal Murray, have combined for 309. Given how the star power seems to cancel out, expect Game 7 to be decided by a third option or role player who steps up.INJURY WATCH: Rotations aren’t expected to change much, if at all, for either team going into Game 7.KEEP AN EYE ON: Denver’s 3-point shooting. The Nuggets beat the Spurs in a Game 7 despite going 2 for 20 from beyond the arc. They can’t expect to do that again and beat the Blazers.PRESSURE IS ON: Slightly more on Denver, simply because the Nuggets are home. Being on the road may actually keep Portland somewhat loose.76ERS AT RAPTORSSeries tied 3-3. Game 7, 7 p.m. EDT, TNTNEED TO KNOW: Both teams have a five-point road win already in this series, and the other four games have all been double-digit victories by the home club. Having two days off between Game 6 and Game 7 probably was welcomed by everybody, particularly 76ers star Joel Embiid, who will likely need to play very big minutes Sunday. The 76ers have outscored the Raptors by 80 points in 192 minutes with Embiid on the floor in this series, and the Raptors have outscored the 76ers by 97 points in the 96 minutes that he’s been on the bench. INJURY WATCH: All the usual names are expected to play.KEEP AN EYE ON: The first few minutes. Nerves get amped up in Game 7 and the first team to settle into a rhythm will have a major edge. Toronto is 7-0 in the playoffs when leading at halftime, 0-4 when trailing at the break.PRESSURE IS ON: Everybody, of course, but Philadelphia has only four players who know what Game 7 feels like. Toronto has nine Game 7 veterans.

Nikola Jokic had a triple-double — 21 points, 15 rebounds, 10 assists — in that game for the Nuggets, and coach Michael Malone is fond of saying his team has the best home-court advantage in the NBA.But Jokic isn’t banking on home court being enough of an edge. He says it’s imperative to bring more energy Sunday — and adds there’s no reason to get nervous.“I’ve played basketball for 15 years,” Jokic said. “That’s what I’ve done my whole life. Why would I be nervous right now? … You control the game. You’re the one who’s playing. As long as you’re giving 100 percent, you can’t be nervous because you’re focused on the plays and actions and whatever you’re doing on the floor. You don’t have time to be nervous.”GAME 7 HISTORIESADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img

Abracadabra! How To Make The Most Of Career Magic Week

first_imgSometimes your job hunt needs a little magic, along with social media, a strong reputation and talent-building strategies.So, you’ll be glad to learn that the week between Christmas and New Year’s – this year, perhaps extending through January 4 – has been dubbed “magic week,” by author and former exec Nan Russell. It’s a marvelous time to connect or reconnect with key people and even to land a job for January.Russell first experienced this while working as an executive at QVC, the multi-billion dollar television shopping channel. “You were happy to connect with people,” Russell recalled, as the pace of work slowed and the holiday glow lingered on. So, she started reaching out to key clients and “found it to be extremely successful.”Then she started accepting a few invitations for coffee or a brief conversation with people looking to join QVC. “You have time – this one week only,” she said.These days, Russell works as a professional speaker, workplace consultant and writer of two columns. She’s published three books, including The Titleless Leader. She suggested her ‘magic week’ idea in the new ebook called New Year, New Job!  101 Top Tips from Job-Hunt Experts for Your Holiday Job Search: How to Use the Holidays to Advance Your Job Search, produced by’s Susan Joyce and others. That’s where I spotted it, realized its value – and included it briefly in my blog post on holiday search tips.Yet I knew there was more to making the most of magic week than Russell could include in the New Year, New Job ebook, so I reached out to her. Here’s her excellent advice:1. Do your homework. Figure out whether the person you want to meet may respond best to being contacted via Twitter, email or phone. “Whatever it is you think the person will respond to, use that,” said Russell. Then also find out who the hiring manager’s lieutenant is and who else is on their team since they may be around even if the top decision-maker is basking on a beach in the Caribbean.2. Suggest a 10 minute meeting. Don’t ask for 30 minutes or a breakfast or lunch, unless you already know the person. And “don’t push too hard” for a meeting, said Russell. Many people will say no and ignore you if you are too aggressive. Sometimes they will say no anyway because they want to savor the magic of the week with people they already know or set up projects for the year ahead. In that case, consider making your pitch by phone or email.3. Know what you want. “Why are you doing it? What are you pitching? You need to know what you want to walk away with,” said Russell. “One thing is permission to stay in contact. You have a built-in relationship that other people don’t” that could be valuable to both. Think through your goal for the conversation or meeting because people who do not seem annoying, she said.4. Be memorable. This does not mean dressing up like an angel or a decked-out Christmas tree for your meeting. It could mean bringing in a dozen homemade cookies for the people you’re meeting. And it definitely means creating a positive association. Be seen as a resource to the person you’re meeting. Sometimes job seekers get that backwards; they think they’re there seeking help with their search. But it’s far better and more powerful, Russell said, to come in and “be really clear about how you may be able to help the other person” with an upcoming project or issue.5. Reconnect with old friends and colleagues. “Reach some people who may have been good coworkers and networkers to you in the past,” she said. “Those can be very powerful reconnections” and are the ones to invite out to lunch or for appetizers or small plates after work.Those magic week meetings at QVC were fruitful, at least for some. Russell recalls meeting some people with skills or attitudes that impressed her so she forwarded along their resume to others within the company. A few landed jobs or temporary assignments as a result of their magic week conversations.If you believe in magic and the joy of holiday connections, start planning your own magic week connections with dream employers and must-know managers.last_img
