Review of "CHILDREN OF PARADISE" by Nick Sagan - The Factory of Ideas

The children of ParaisoThe Children of Paradise It is the second part of Genetic code but it is meant to be read individually ... Of course all this did not know to start reading the book, so I spent a long time thinking if he had read or not. And that is to put the new situation reader, the first chapters are very similar to those of the first book (almost equal would say) ... and a bit confused.

After the initial shock and checking it was a second part, I was reading the book as usual (one hour daily approx.), But as advancing the plot, every time I liked less and eventually recovered memory and the entire first book and my thoughts as they read came to me: conclusion, this book is as bad as the first.

Well ... I do not know if it is bad literary level, because I have no idea and do not dare to issue such judgments, but I can say that I do not like it and surely, I'm not the target audience of the author.

The argument would give much of himself in the hands of any other (in the hands of the father of Nick Sagan, for example), but I think this book is intended to be read by teenagers, and both issues raised as the type of decisions made the protagonists are primary and banal ... no offense ... but teens say they are different approaches that you have when you pass forty.

La historia transcurre en un futuro en el que una cepa de la peste negra ha terminado con toda la humanidad, excepto con un pequeño reducto de posthumanos creados por un laboratorio genético mientras se buscaba una cura para la pandemia, y que como han sido criados por entes de realidad virtual están un poco desquiciados. Esto es básicamente el resumen de Código Genético, la primera parte. En esta segunda parte, nos encontramos con una segunda generación de posthumanos más desquiciados que los primeros, que nos plantean dilemas y retos de lo más estúpido y sinsentido. …Con lo bien que hubiese estado que relatase cómo es este mundo casi sin humanos y cómo intentan sobrevivir y conseguir que la raza humana no muera con ellos. Obviamente, estos temas sí los toca, pero lo hace por encima y sin entrar en discusiones filosóficas o científicas.

Anyway ... I think Nick Sagan uses the name of his father to introduce his books in publishing houses adult science fiction, but actually writes books for pre pubescent teens.

Decidedly I liked more like Star Trek screenwriter. I hope you reconsider and return to the script ... that, or that do not include their books in some collections.

Formentera and the announcement of Damm

Leo Hosteltur in a report entitled "They resist the Temporary Business"That destinations with better picture and events throughout the summer, have endured the crisis well. Among these destinations are located Formentera.

The Report explains how Formentera has benefited in terms of image and therefore occupancy level for the spot Estrella Damm beer set on the island, whose soundtrack has become the song of the summer.

The spot began airing in early June, only for the Spanish market and interestingly, in July the occupation by Spanish tourists increased by 2.37 points over last year (this year was 84.25%). In August, this increase was 1.40 points higher (has reached 90%).

The increases do not seem anything special in normal times, but in an environment with widespread falls, show that behind them there is a good marketing action and a good product, especially if we consider that the occupation in July of destination sun and beach Spanish coast fell by over 10%.

The odd thing is that the promotion of Formentera or at a cost, and was not planned in advance, at least as regards the Tourism Promotion Formentera.

Although obviously not all the credit goes to the ad because the Italians saw and overnights and also increased their market share (now represent 50.1% of tourism in Formentera). But this destination enjoys in the source markets in a very good image, linked to a bohemian-romantic spirit and unspoiled natural landscapes, stereotype Damm's announcement helped bolster.

Generally, in times of crisis it is the image of a destination and proximity to markets issuers making a destination to succeed over others. When there is no money, people travel to the best possible place within a certain radius, and the Mediterranean islands that have good image, this year have been rewarded.
