Neymar’s £7m paradise on earth mansion

first_img Loading… Neymar found himself at the centre of a coronavirus crisis storm when he was accused of flaunting self-isolation rules. The PSG star flew to Brazil on a private jet with pals and shared snaps on social media playing beach volleyball with his mates. A local described the property as a “dream home” when it first emerged Neymar had bought it. Of course, it’s a property that’s fit for a king – and the world’s most expensive player. Built on a two-and-a-half acre plot, the property rests in the exclusive and gated estate called Portobello. And it’s amenities are just simply out of this world. Not many footballers can say their house boasts a helipad and jetty, but Neymar can. The latter is where he docks his yacht, the Embraer Phenom 100E. There’s also plenty of self-isolation essentials – like a gym, tennis court, sauna, massage room, spa, and jacuzzi. If that’s not enough. there’s an underground cellar with space for 3,000 bottles of wine. Neymar’s neighbours include footballer Emerson Sheik and Brazilian Emmy-nominated actress Adriana Esteves. He showed off the swimming pool of the mansion on Instagram soon after he made the multi-million pound purchase by posting a photo of himself with friends in the water. The caption read: “In life people only need love and friends.” The villa is also a short drive from famous Angra Dos Reis, a popular getaway for Rio residents and a beautiful mirage of 365 islands. Despite appearing to break quarantine rules, that game of beach volleyball actually took place in the confines of his sprawling estate. And those friends that are staying with him are actually in quarantine with him. His communication manager revealed: “The photo in question was published on Neymar’s Instagram and shows him with other people who are in quarantine with him, people who live and travelled together from Paris to Brazil. “Neymar offered his home to all of them so they could spend the first 14 days there before meeting up with their respective families. “The house where the athlete is doing his quarantine is totally isolated and provides peace and serenity so he can continue training and looking after his loved ones at this time of world pain and confinement. “There are no visits or business meetings at the house, above all because the residential estate it’s on only permits access to residents. “The exception in terms of visitors has been his son, Davi Lucca, who came to the house to stay with his dad.

Oscar telecasts preserved

first_imgThe USC Digital Repository announced on Thursday that it will be maintaining and preserving a 320-terabyte collection of audiovisual materials that has been created by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences throughout the last 50 years.The collection, filled with thousands of hours of footage, documents the history of the Academy through the Academy Awards ceremony, the Academy Film Archive’s digital restoration projects and other events and projects.The Academy Film Archive, which was established in 1991 and aims to support the preservation and restoration of film as well as the study of motion pictures, has become one of most extensive film collections in the entire world.The Digital Repository is an initiative that brings together USC Libraries, the Shoah Foundation, and Information Technology Services. The current arrangement between the Academy and the Digital Repository will focus on preserving the collection for the long term.“[The] purpose of the Digital Repository is to use the technology infrastructure of ITS and the Shoah Foundation, and the metadata and collection experts in the libraries to make a business out of preserving and making accessible huge digital collections that no one else can do,” said Hugh McHarg, associate dean of planning and communications for USC Libraries.McHarg went on to note that the work being done among these three USC institutions is unlike that at any other in the nation.“There is no other partnership at a major institution like the USC Digital Repository,” McHarg said. “It brings together the expertise that the Shoah Foundation has with the videos and audio of the Holocaust survivors’ testimonies; it brings together the expertise of the ITS and the high computing performance center. [It also] loops in the expertise of the libraries of cataloging and creating meaningful metadata so that people can find and discover these things now and in the future.”In a press release, Director of the Academy Film Archive Michael Pogorzelski noted the importance of maintaining film history.“Preserving the history of cinema in all its forms always has been a prime concern of the Academy,” Pogorzelski said. “That history lives in film reels, movie posters, lobby cards — and now, digital files. We need to preserve our digital history alongside our celluloid heritage for the next century and beyond. That’s what this project with USC is all about.”In addition to the technological aspect, part of preserving the collection will include extensive cataloging, so that in due time, people will be able to find the information they need and use it in a meaningful way.“It is one of the biggest collections in the Digital Repository to date,” McHarg said. “It is a pretty prestigious thing to have under our care.”last_img read more
