Strada Sforii – The Rope Street – Brasov, Romania a curiosity and an interesting story

If you are wondering whether a street can have an interesting story, let me tell you that yes, a street can have an amazing and lost in time history.

Brasov is one of the larger and more famous cities of Romania. Many events are hosted in this city and many people go to it the city and than up to the mountains – for Brasov is a city located in the middle of the mountains. You can take the cable car and go to the top of the mountains for a beautiful panorama of the city.

But let’s get back to the Rope Street and it’s story.

If you’ll search tourism guides you’ll find out that this is a street from the XIX-th century and that is in fact a corridor for the firefighters.

But there’s more to the story – and we found this out from a guide 😉

First of all imagine that the street has a length of 80 m and a width between 111 and 135 cm. Right, centimeters. That means between 44 and 54 inches. Not much space, right? But wait! It gets even better. At the end there’s a wall that allows only a man to get through.

Now let’s go way back in history and think about the medieval wars and the cavalry – rider and his horse. Imagine an army comes to this street and it has to pass it… they cannot advance in formation but only one at a time. And at the end, the horseman cannot even exit mounted! At the other end there are the defenders, just waiting for the enemy. Should I go on any further or you can imagine the outcome by yourselves?

Yes, Romanians always used the turf advantages. We have mountains and we ambushed the enemy armies in these passes. The Rope Street is another interesting finding of the inventiveness of the people fighting to protect their land.

Of course nowadays it’s just a street and a curiosity for many – at least for those who heard about it. But enough said – let’s have a look at the street (and at Ave and me as well 🙂 ).

    Right now it sounds like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    olx curitiba Então, você quer ser um PMP?

    Os 21 fatos irrefutáveis sobre como se tornar um PMP

    Nesta série, Jimmie Flores, PhD, PMP, fornecerá as expectativas claras ao aplicar
    para PMP, preparando-se para o exame rigoroso
    e usando o PMP para dobrar ou triplicar sua taxa horária.

    Dr. Flores ensina que muitos projetos de cursos de gestão que ele construiu do zero.
    Esses cursos incluem fundamentos de gerenciamento de projeto, projeto de gestão intermédia, certificação PMP e vantagem de gerenciamento de projeto e PM em ação.

    Nos últimos anos, Dr. Flores ensinou esses cursos para organizações
    que incluem a cidade de San Antonio, General Dynamics e RackSpace Hosting.

    Então, você quer ser um PMP?

    Por que quer ganhar a credencial Project Management Professional (PMP)?
    Até que você esteja 100% de certeza que ele vai fazer
    uma diferença para você e sua carreira, é quase impossível dar o primeiro passo para apresentar o pedido
    no PMI.Org. Uma coisa é certa; o PMP é um divisor de águas.

    Sei que as expectativas do PMI

    Durante os últimos anos, ter ensinado muitos cursos de gestão de projeto,
    incluindo a certificação PMP. Com a experiência, eu sei
    que muitos alunos são surpreendidos pelos requisitos esperados de PMI antes um pode sentar-se para o exame.
    Primeiro, o candidato deve ter no mínimo de 4.500 horas de líderes e gerenciamento de projetos durante os últimos 8 anos, supondo que o requerente tem um grau de 4 anos.
    Sem um curso de graduação, os balões de exigência de hora para
    7.500.

    Antes de pensar que levará você para sempre para ganhar as horas, compreendo que há 2.080 horas de
    trabalho durante o ano. Portanto, se você estiver trabalhando em
    projetos ao longo do ano, você pode cumprir a exigência em vários anos de trabalho.
    Claro que muitos de vocês trabalham mais do que o padrão 40 horas por semana, então encontro a exigência é mais provável do que você imagina.
    Se você não está trabalhando atualmente em projetos,
    é missão crítica que você encontrar trabalho de projeto.

    O que é trabalho de projecto?

    No curso de projeto de Gerenciamento essencial que leciono, nós certifique-se
    de aprender a definição de um projeto:

    • É um esforço temporário, projetado para criar eficiências para a organização.

    • Projetos são iniciados para gerar receitas para a organização.

    • Projetos devem ter uma data de início e fim.
    Eles não podem ser em aberto.
    • Quando terminar, os membros de gerente e a equipe do projeto vão entregar um único produto, serviço ou resultado para o cliente.

    • O trabalho é único e não rotina na natureza.
    Por exemplo, construir uma aplicação de
    folha de pagamento é um projeto, mas não é processamento de folha de pagamento.
    Eu brinco com meus alunos que, se você é empregado para uma organização onde
    a folha de pagamento é um projeto, você pode querer considerar um lugar de diferença para ganhar seu sustento!

    • Quando o cliente recebe o produto final,
    e o gerente de projeto conduz o processo de fechamento,
    o projeto deixa de existir. Neste momento, a equipe do projeto é liberada.

    Se você não tem muito de uma oportunidade para trabalhar em projetos onde você trabalha,
    considere postagem na lista de Craig ou freelance para proteger o trabalho do projeto.
    Você pode criar apresentações, escrever guias do usuário,
    ou gerenciar equipes virtuais. Este esforço dá-lhe uma oportunidade de ganhar horas e ganhe dinheiro ao mesmo tempo.

    Tomar ação

    Nas classes certificação PMP que leciono, observei que apenas 20%
    ou menos dos alunos seguirão para o exame. A grande maioria vai encontrar razões para procrastinar.

    Curiosamente, muitos que adiar o exame estão dispostos a fazer bem nele,
    mas inércia define, e eles não estão dispostos a fazer o investimento em tempo e dinheiro.

    Minha recomendação é definir prazos. Assim que tiver uma data em mente quando você gostaria de
    se tornar um PMP, as chances são que você vai passar nessa direção.

    Da minha experiência, posso dizer-te que as oportunidades de carreira são abundantes para
    aqueles que aceitam o desafio e se tornar um Project Management Professional (PMP).
