The company Totfan Games has created a few virtual albums, in addition to satisfying the desire of the collector, will serve to make friends through a social network. To know more about this subject visit Elon Musk. The idea, which is intended to bring to market next fall, is directed above all to digital natives, i.e.

children and adolescents who are handled smoothly with new technologies and smartphones and to those who touch the scraps of paper not generates them the same sensations as their parents or older siblings. Here, the album is virtual. After registering on Facebook or Twitter collector in power will get the top ten digital stickers for free. If one is fond of, each time you enter the site from the collection get free another more, but to do with the whole (there will be a unique percentage) must make micropayments through SMS (which around the 1.40 euros) to buy packs of ten cards randomly, as traditional envelopes that you had to rip to view its contents. Explains Jaume Teixi, moreover, co-founder of Totfan, everything is the same, repeated scraps can be changed (or give away as third) with other collectors that will send them an offer on line with numbers that is demanded and what is offered to them in return, it may be rejected or contraofertada. This relationship makes the virtual album in a social game, a community that will make it possible to connect people with the same interests: football, music, TV series, celebrity animation Teixi and his partner Raquel Iglesias, with whom founded the company a year ago (headquartered in the incubator of Barcelona Activa) have already reached a pre-agreement with the Spanish first division soccer equipment (which do not give the name) to get out of shape joint the first collection.

We call Totfan because, precisely, the idea is to make collectibles to fans, explaining those responsible for the project. Totfan Games has also thought about digital immigrants, those who like to count with the physical album. Once glued the last virtual chrome, the collector may print them all on paper and have it between your hands with an additional cost. If not, can comply with the pdf. The platform works via web and ipad and they are developing applications for mobile system android and iPhones. These entrepreneurs are about to finish their first round of financing, that between private and public capital will be around half a million euros. If these digital collections are successful, the image of a child with a WAD of chrome to change and a paper with the list of numbers that is missing may be about to go down in history.

Around the stadium seat installation are several considerations: appropriate questions may arise regarding the capacity, optimal utilization, the architecture of the stadium as well as the available escape routes. Stadium world informed in the next topic special seats & stands\”around the seating in the stadium and the arena.

Olympic Games

In the relay, you can use replacement cartridges, charging by hand, in 3 pieces for each firing line. TV ratings and the number of broadcasts since 1999 , the renown of biathlon on television has increased by more than 3-fold (Figure left). In the case of the total number of viewers sezone-1999/2000 was slightly larger 200 million, then 10 years later, already 650 million of course, in the years of Interest in the Olympic Games for the World Cup was reduced. Games in Salt Lake City were more popular than in Turin. In general, the final two Olympic cycles were a general audience – about 500 million, but even in these non-Olympic season rating games was a bit more than 100 million in our first press conference, President RBU Mikhail Prokhorov has suggested that "the biathlon will get prime-time when overcome the barrier of two billion viewers." The current 650 million constitute about one third of the plan. The number of seasonal broadcasts (in hours) for 10 years has increased 4-fold – from 300 to almost 1,200 hours in the new season (figure). Almost every year on television all the more biathlon. Exceptions were only sezon-2002/03 and two final season.

The graph does not sezon-2006/07, who most quickly, was great. Interest in the race for the season to the audience's interest in biathlon for the season is not permanent. For example, for the three final , the second time the World Cup twice been less attractive to the viewer than the 1st (left graph). Interest to the viewer steps can be carried out in the form of mini-plates, where the '+' – a growing number of spectators, and '-' – their reduction. For the sake of the latter season it will be as follows: = (stage 1) – (2) + (3) + (4) – (5) – (6) – (7) + (8) + (9). Income reaches a peak during periods in Oberhof, Ruhpolding and is gradually reduced by 6-7 steps and then grows to the final race. The lowest rating broadcasts for the three age groups – a step in the Vancouver-2009. Race came at night European time.

An important argument, not to give in advance the capital for future games newest record. Gear range of stages in part repeats the graph of popularity of spectator. Perhaps the most amusing part – reducing the volume to the final rounds will not affect the number of viewers. For comparison – the gear range of the first period mira-2008/09 Cup was 105 hours, the final – 75. However, the number of viewers of the 9th period was longer. World Cup 2008 in Ostersund – the most commonly used for the final three years (400 million viewers), although the range of transmission was less Compared with the two former tournaments. Championship-2009 in Korea a little lost on the audience Antholz-2007 (graph in the middle). It's exciting, but the World Cup in Oberhof in 2007, has collected 240 million, and the World Cup 2009 – 300 million Almost equal numbers.
