Guy Sebastian blogsup to promote NSW

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Young talent Guy Sebastian and Matilda Brown have teamed up to promote the beauty and adventure in NSW, as part Tourism NSW’s new youthful campaign.The ambassadors were selected to help reduce the effects of the strong dollar and increase the state’s appeal to younger travellers, according to NSW Tourism, Major Events and Hospitality Minister George Souris.“Sydney and regional NSW attract more than five million visitors in the 15-29 age range every year and it’s worth about $5.5 billion to the State’s economy,” Mr Souris explained.“We want to let young Australians know how much there is to see and do in their own backyard- they’ve lost the habit of holidaying at home.”As part of the Tourism NSW youth initiative, personalities including Guy Sebastian, Matilda Brown, Channel V’s Danny Clayton, Peep Toe’s Nikki Hager, surfer Sally Fitzgibbons and chef Dan Hong will be paired up with travel bloggers to promote the best events and activities across the state.The well-known faces will Tweet or Facebook a question like “Where do you recommend I go for the best surf?” and responses will then be submitted to Tourism NSW, who will then send bloggers out to the locations to spread the news.Guy Sebastian said he was eager to share his “tips” and his favorite things to see and do across Sydney and NSW.  “My work involves a lot of travel both domestically and internationally,” he said.“Every time I fly over Sydney it always hits home that I am so lucky to live in the most beautiful city in the world.”In support of the new campaign, Tourism NSW also unveiled five new short videos, filmed, directed and produced by Matilda Brown, which will be uploaded onto Youtube and the Group’s website.“There’ll be a Facebook application and competition based around the five short films produced by Matilda Brown, called “Captured by the Country,” Mr Souris explained.“Facebook users can watch the films, select an experience to win, and share with friends to ‘like’ the application and enter the competition.”Mr Souris told e-Travel Blackboard last night at then launch of the new campaign that the new promotion was part of the State’s plan to double tourism by 2020.last_img read more

How many plays do you expect your starters to be i

first_imgHow many plays do you expect your starters to be in for Saturday?“Depends how it goes. If it was as good as last week it will probably be the same. If it’s not, we’ll play a little bit longer. I don’t really have a snap count, really, for anybody this week. Just watch and see how they play and go from there.” A lot of linebackers are getting hurt around the league. When that happens, is it a cause for concern or just a crazy trend?“It’s just bad luck. It’s one of those things. It does cyclically go through positions, it’s funny, and then everybody’s looking for one and there’s none out there to find. So you’re going to have to create one. That happens a lot of times — guy that has multiple position flexibility, it’s really valuable.”Is the amount of depth on the roster a testament to the coaching staff’s ability to get young players up to speed?“I think, first of all it goes to Steve (Keim) and Terry (McDonough) for getting quality players. Then for the coaching staff to develop them. That’s one of the reasons we do the double practices in the heat of the spring so that those guys get all those reps and they’re not way, way behind when we come to training camp.” Do you think John Brown, given his speed, was overlooked because of his size?“You never know who had what grades on guys. I know that people say, ‘hey, you got my guy right before we were going to take him,’ yeah, really? I’ve been through this so many times with small school, smaller receivers that are fast. A lot of guys like them 6-2, 220 that can’t run. I like those little fast guys.Did you hear that from anybody this year about John Brown, that they were about to draft him before you did?“Yeah, about three or four. They’re all lying.”Are you interested in seeing how a player like Logan Thomas handles all the positive attention he’s been receiving since his preseason debut?“It would be nice if he were getting a lot of reps this week, but it’s not his turn. I really enjoy all the guys who said he stunk coming out and should play him at tight end. They’re eating a lot of crow this week, so that’s fun.” – / 37 0 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories GLENDALE, Ariz. — Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his second year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media each day during training camp.Here, in this space, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following the morning walk-through:“I thought yesterday was another really, really fast, excellent practice. We stacked two. It’s a good challenge to see if we can do it three days in a row, going Cardinals against Cardinals. Tomorrow we’ll work a little bit against Minnesota because they are different and we want to give our guys a chance to perform better.last_img read more
