19 November 2018 - Famous Italian pianist and composer Maurizio Mastrini will perform on the Great Scene of the Cultural and Information Centre "Budo Tomović" on Tuesday, November 20th at 8 PM.

The program will feature Mastrini's compositions: “Essential”, “La stagione dell'amore carezze”, “Children's Love”, “Primavera... La rinascita”, “Malinconia”, “Fly”, “W la vita”, “Tango Clandestino” and “La rossiniana”. The entrance to the performance is free.

Maestro Mastrini is distinguished for its strong emotions, original performance technique, but also because he always performs barefoot. His indisputable technique, which allows him to impress the audience during each performance, confirms his quality as an artist on the Italian and international music scene. It's no coincidence that the "Mastrini Phenomenon" has won and continues to conquer critics and the audience. Mastrini had great success on four different continents and the awards he received for the performance of Schuman's "Fantasy op.17", which eminent musicologist Richard Allorto included in the "The Masterpieces" collection, which was otherwise published by Ricordi (CD also includes the recording of Artur Rubinstein) confirms his essential role in the evolution of modern pianism.

So far Maurizio Mastrini has held numerous concerts in a very specific environment, such as "The First Snow Concert" held at Folgaria Trento at 2,600 meters above sea level, or "Concert for Water" in the thermal water in Montepulciano, or "Fire Concert" at the volcano Etna, 2,000 meters at the time of the eruption, or even "Concert on the Moon" held under the walls of the Temple of Juno, in the Valley of Temples in the Agrigento. No less impressive was the "Concert in the desert", performed in the Arabian Desert in Dubai.

Maurizio Mastrini is one of the most important pianists and most original composers in the international music and instrumental scene. Called "Wild Heart" because of his solitary nature, he is a true musical genius on the international scene, not only thanks to the strong emotional involvement during each performance but also thanks to the original piano technique that has captivated audiences around the world.

Mastrini's first musical movements took place in his father's forge, making primitive drums from empty paint bands and playing on them. Considered the "wonder child" by numerous experts, Mastrini became a student of Maestro Vincenzo Vitale; the pianist's journey quickly began, which soon led him to important Italian concert stages. His brilliant career was interrupted in 2000, due to a personal crisis, and continued in 2009 thanks to his dream and the desire to embroider in a new type of artistic expression, "Music backward", which implies playing backward, from the last to the first.

Since returning to the scene to this date, Mastrini has held over 480 concerts around the world. The most important and well-known world newspapers follow his work, his extremely successful tour and 7 published sound carriers (CD's) of compositions, distributed worldwide: "Il mio mondo al contrario", "Il profumo della musica ", "Contrario", "Terra", "Fly", "ESSENTIAL-piano and strings" in cooperation with the International Merenptah Orchestra, led by conductor Maestro Flavio Emilio Scogna.

In May 2015, his seventh album, "PIANIST", was released, based on outstanding technical virtuosity, and in 2016, he published his new work "HEART", where he used his heartbeats as the rhythmic basis of the title track.

The theme of the workshop is based on EU Directive 92/43 / EEC (Habitats Directive), whose provisions relate to measures to preserve and restore habitats and animal and plant species of common interest, taking into account economic, social and the cultural requirements and the regional and local characteristics of the area. Member States participate in the realization of Nature 2000 (Special Protection Sector Network) and are obliged to designate sites of special protection areas on their territory, to maintain them, and where appropriate to development, creates a landscape that is of great importance to wild fauna and flora.

As part of the theme, the lecturers will present the activities that are related to the topic at both administrative and practical level and to familiarize the participants with further plans in this area, while visiting lecturers will bring closer the way of law enforcement and implementation of the directive in neighboring areas.

The habitats have become increasingly fragmented because of the increasing pressure under them, leading to a reduction in the number of species, their shedding, as well as the value of goods and services provided by our natural goods. The need to implement laws to improve the overall status of nature is one of the objectives of the project "Marine Biodiversity Conservation Center of the Sea Aquarium - MonteAqua".

18 November 2018 - Minister of the Interior Mevludin Nuhodžić and Director of the Police Directorate Veselin Veljović on the occasion of the eve of the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, visited the road traffic checkpoints and noted that the violation of the traffic regulations will be vigorously punished. The state is determined to put an end to the wild driving on the Montenegrin roads. 

"We are here today to support traffic officers who have a hard and responsible job and who care about the lives of drivers. More than a million people are killed every year on the roads in the world. Unfortunately, people are killed on our roads too. The fact is that from year to year this number is decreasing, but every human life is precious and we have to take care of it. Day of Remembrance should remind us to drive slower, to respect traffic signs, not to talk on a mobile phone while driving and to respect speed limits. In this way, we will show concern for our lives, but also for the lives of others," Minister Nuhodžić said. 

The Minister announced rigorous controls of the drivers without any exceptions. 

"They will not be untouchable during traffic control. They will not be excluded and untouchable in the application of legal regulations. We will put an end to the wild driving on the Montenegrin roads, which irresponsibly takes the lives of others! The Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Police Directorate will work with full vigor to make such things happen as little as possible," the Minister stressed.

At the checkpoints, the non-governmental organisation Alfa Centre shared informative material in order to motivate the participants in the traffic to reduce speed and not to use mobile phones while driving. 

Executive Director of the Alfa Centre Aleksandar Šime Dedović and Head of the Security Centre Podgorica Milovan Pavićević also visited the checkpoints. Dedović reminded that this NGO has been conducting awareness-raising campaigns for all aspects of traffic safety for the seventh year. 

Both the Minister and the Director of the Alfa Centre called on the representatives of the wider community to engage in the process of education and motivation of the participants in the traffic so that everyone is safer and to reduce the number of road traffic victims. 

The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year. In 2005 the United Nations General Assembly invited all nations to observe the day as the appropriate acknowledgment of victims of road traffic accidents and raising awareness of traffic safety.

17 November 2018 - In the organization of NLP Network, an informative lecture "Why is it good to know NLP?" Was held last night at the Cultural Center "Nikola Đurković" in Kotor. More than 50 people from various industries, from the private and public sector, entrepreneurs, sales staff, marketing, health, and education workers, showed an interest in learning this course. This methodology primarily focuses on methods of neuro-linguistic programming.

Participants were introduced to NLP methodology by Danko Ćetković and Aleksandra Anđelić, the founders of NLP Network, who also presented NLP education, as well as a special way of working, characterized by their trainers. The lecture was interactive, the participants presented their experiences, asked questions related to the application of this methodology in business or private life. The interest in this form of education shows that students recognize the importance of this kind of non-formal education.

"On the one hand, more and more people have the need and desire to work on themselves, to learn new things, to improve their skills, but today's business environment, which is becoming increasingly demanding, requires it from us. The highest quality formal education is no longer required. All that matters is whether you are good or not in your job and the way how you build interpersonal relationships, how you communicate with your clients, colleagues, how you work in the team, how quickly you are adjusting to more and more frequent changes, how you amortize stressful situations, as well as how you plan and manage your work tasks, but also your career," as noted by the representatives of NLP Network.

"Also, we are all more and more seriously disturbed the balance between business and private life, and for that reason, we feel dissatisfaction, constant stress, worry, nervousness and so on. All of this, in the end, leads us to, in spite of the increased effort, to miss the desired results and not to realize all that we can for what we have potential. These are some of the reasons why it is necessary to work on improving the communication skills, flexibility, goal setting, as well as reconsidering their beliefs that can be supportive or even limiting to achieve the desired results, in which NLP can greatly help us with its methods," concluded members of NLP Network during their lecture about methods of neuro-linguistic programming.

Until now, NLP education was conducted only in Podgorica, however, due to the interest shown after the Info Lectures, for the first time in Kotor NLP Basic is being organized - a two-day training programme which will take place during December 8-9. Information and applications can be found here, and you can also follow NLP Network on their Facebook Page.
