Early Bird: The Friends series is preparing a sequel. Trump without evidence. Indonesia is building a Jurassic Park
It's a great honor to perform at the half-time of the Super Bowl. Next year, the Canadian singer The Weeknd will get the chance. The Czech Philharmonic Orchestra has once again hope for a modern concert hall. And did you know that there is a plan for shooting another episode of the legendary series Friends?
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security rejects Trump's allegations
The U.S. federal election officials issued a statement in response to the incumbent President Donald Trump's allegations of election fraud. The 74-year-old statesman is spreading unsubstantiated information that almost 3 million votes have been manipulated during the election. The president also still refuses to recognize Joe Biden as the winner of the election and his successor. The US Homeland Security Office strongly denies allegations of electoral machinations.
"We know that there are many unsubstantiated claims and misinformation about the election process, but we can assure you that we have maximum confidence in the security and integrity of our elections. And you should, too,"
stated by the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) Committee.
Prague wants to build a futuristic concert hall
Following the example of large European cities such as Hamburg, Porto and Oslo, Prague wants to build a modern concert hall with distinctive architectural elements. In the capital, a similar building has been in talks for many years. Now the city management has agreed with the prestigious global studio Henning Larsen and other companies to develop an usability study. Because of this construction, changes in the zoning plan are even being prepared. The plan is apparently for an ultra-modern concert hall with a capacity of 2,000 spectators. According to the estimates, the entire construction should cost about four billion CZK.
"The modern architecture in Prague cannot end only with the Dancing House. We don't want our city to be an open-air museum. I would like other buildings of world importance to be built here. I believe that the new concert hall could be such a building,"
the current mayor of Prague, Zdenek Hřib, commented.
Indonesia started building their own "Jurassic Park"
The ruling party wants to take advantage of the fact that more than a thousand giant Komodo dragons live in the Komodo National Park. The national park is located on three Indonesian islands and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Indonesian government has an ambitious plan to turn the area into a sought-after tourist destination. Although the building site is under a strict supervision, the Al Jazeera television has managed to get into the area anyway. Excavation and construction work is underway in the protected area, which, according to the locals is very unsettling for the lizards. Because of this, several zoologists have been called to the area to take care of these imposing lizards. The government plans to build a Y-shaped harbor for the tourist boats. Visitors should walk around the park along a large circular concrete structure from which they can observe the lizards below.
The music star of the 55th Super Bowl will be the singer The Weeknd
The Super Bowl is not only a sports but also a music event. To perform in the half-time program of the final of the Supreme Professional League of American Football (NFL) is an honor for every musician. For decades, the biggest music stars from all over the world have performed here. On February 7th, 2021, if the coronavirus pandemic allows it, the singer The Weeknd will be included in the musical elite. The Canadian R&B artist is no newcomer to the music scene. Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, which is his birthname, released his debut album Kiss Land in 2013. It was followed by the albums Beauty Behind the Madness, Starboy and this year's After Hours. He also has several Grammy Music Awards and entries in the Guinness Book of Records on his account.
Slovakia has also advanced to the EURO
The Slovak national football team is celebrating great success. After Michal Ďuriš's goal from the 2nd overtime, the Slovaks advanced to the European Football Championship 2021 shortly before midnight. In Windsor Park in Belfast, only 1,060 spectators watched the battle of Northern Ireland with Slovakia for the EURO due to coronavirus. In the first half, Juraj Kucka sent the guests into the lead. A few minutes before the end of the match, however, our eastern neighbors scored their own goal, so the match went into overtime. In it, Slovakia won its first participation in the EURO. In the basic group, they will meet Sweden, Poland and Spain next year. Participation in the tournament, which will be played for the first time by 24 European national teams, was already also won by the Czech national team. In the basic group, we will compete with England, Croatia and Scotland, which eliminated the favorites from Serbia yesterday due to penalties.
A special episode of the series Friends should be released next year
Last year, 25 years have passed since the first episode of the legendary comedy series Friends. A total of 236 episodes of this sitcom should be continued in the form of one special episode, with the participation of the original cast. If it wasn't for the coronavirus epidemic, it would most likely already be out. Matthew Perry brought the good news on Twitter.
"Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that's the way I like it,"
wrote an American-Canadian actor who played the role of Chandler Bing in the series.
We don't have more in the last Early Bird of this working week. We wish for your last day of work to pass in no time, for example accompanied by a quality music. Because the French writer Victor Hugo already knew that:
