Seton Hall Sports Poll

28% of Men Would Rather Their Favorite Team Win the Super Bowl or World Series
Than Their Favorite Candidate Win the 2020 Presidential Election; Only 11% of Women Feel the Same

Twenty-one percent of Americans said they spent more time watching the impeachment hearings
than entertainment shows or sports events.

By 74 to 19 percent, the American public said they would rather their preferred candidate win the 2020 presidential election than their favorite team win the Super Bowl or World Series.  

However, 28 percent of males said they would rather see their favorite team win the championship than have their favorite candidate win the 2020 presidential election – while 64 percent said they would prefer their favorite candidate to win. Another 8 percent said they did not know or had no opinion.

Among women, only 11 percent said they would prefer their team to win, with 84% preferring their candidate to win the presidential election. The remaining five percent did not know or had no opinion.  

These are the findings of a Seton Hall Sports Poll conducted this week of 712 adults on landlines and cellphones across the country.  The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percent.

“In the last two presidential elections voter turnout has been between 58 and 60 percent,” said Rick Gentile, director of the Seton Hall Sports Poll, which is sponsored by the Sharkey Institute within the Stillman School of Business. “It shouldn’t be a surprise that that many men care more about the outcome of a baseball or a football season than the political future of the country – but it is alarming.”

Presidential Candidate or Championship, By Education Level

The more education the respondents had, the more strongly they felt about the election results. For those with less than a high school education, 55 percent said they would prefer their favorite “presidential candidate to win,” while 31 percent said they would prefer their team to win (14 percent did not know/had no opinion).

For those who graduated college, 81 percent said they would prefer their favorite “presidential candidate to win,” while only 16 percent of college grads said they would prefer their sports team to win the Super Bowl or the World Series.

Impeachment Hearings, Sporting Events or Entertainment Shows?

The poll asked the public if they had spent more time watching sports events, entertainment shows or the impeachment hearings in the last week. Twenty-one percent of Americans said they spent more time watching the hearings; 28 percent said they watched more sports events, while 40 percent said they watched more entertainment shows. Ten percent said “none,” while 2 percent said they did not know or had no opinion (Total result of rounding).

This poll was conducted by telephone November 18-20 among adults in the United States. The Seton Hall Sports Poll is conducted by the Sharkey Institute within the Stillman School of Business. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard landline and cell phones.  The error for subgroups may be higher.

Lithuanian Fine Dining

Trend of Going Back to the Roots Praised by Michelin-Starred Chefs

Michelin-starred chefs from Italy were impressed by fine dining and food traditions they have discovered in Vilnius – the capital of Lithuania. The chefs pointed out reliance on roots and authenticity as the main strength of Lithuanian cuisine. They saw this as a trend that other countries are likely to follow.

The restaurants, food markets and delicacy shops of Vilnius attracted considerable attention of Michelin-starred chefs Andrea Aprea and Anthony Genovese, who visited the Lithuanian capital to attend the Lithuanian Gastronomy Forum. Both chefs agreed that a combination of authentic elements with modern cuisine sets Vilnius food tradition as an example to follow.

“Authenticity is important for the new generation of chefs we see coming at the moment. It is quite easy to get caught up in what the rest of the world is doing without figuring out who exactly you are as a chef and learning about your own heritage. Once you have this base understanding of yourself and your roots, your food will continue to evolve and thrive,” said Chef Genovese from the restaurant Il Pagliaccio, **Michelin Guide 2019.

According to Chef Aprea, when people make their traditional dishes they save and share memories of authentic food. People then learn from each other by making or tasting food of other cultures.

“I don’t have any memory of Lithuanian food, I don‘t know what is authentic Lithuanian cuisine, but the food itself and chefs who made it were telling stories. They combine the contemporary approach towards food with local traditional food elements. I think that coming back to the roots, saving and sharing memory is the way everybody should and will follow,” explained Chef Aprea from the restaurant VUN, ** Michelin Guide 2019.

During his food exploration trip, Chef Aprea was introduced to food served in Lithuania during the Middle Ages. He tried traditional cottage cheese, smoked pork fat, kvass and spit cake.

“I’d definitely recommend Vilnius as a gastro tourism place. It’s interesting to discover both the modern cuisine with traditional elements and an authentic food experience tasting the food that Lithuanians served on the table in the Middle Ages. Not only I’d recommend Vilnius to my friends or other chefs but I also plan coming back here again myself,” reflected Chef Aprea.

Vilnius’ restaurants focus on seasonal cuisine, improvisation, and unique culinary experiences. And though they differ in flavours, concepts and traditions, they’re all contributing to the city’s budding food scene, which takes guests on delicious flavour filled adventures.

Most of the top-grade restaurants in Vilnius have some traditional Lithuanian elements in their menus. For example, restaurants Nineteen 18 and Sweet Root both base their cuisine specifically on a modern interpretation of Lithuanian culinary tradition. These restaurants were  listed second and third, respectively, on the 2019 Top 30 Baltic restaurants list and given the Global Master Level by the White Guide Nordic. The best Lithuanian restaurant (according to a local ratingDžiaugsmas also serves creative reinterpretation of local food.

The menu of such restaurants features original interpretations of such Lithuanian everyday dishes as carp, schnitzel, beetroots and potatoes. Mushrooms – the must-have of the ordinary Lithuanian kitchen get into unexpected combinations as in dried boletus ice cream with hazelnut biscuit and fourteen months oak-aged apple vinegar served in Džiaugsmas. The fine-dining restaurants use local supplies of Lithuanian farmers or even develop their own farms.

Chef Aprea thinks that the popularity of local produce and food markets also adds to the high quality of food in Vilnius restaurants.

“When I visit foreign countries I first try to find out where people from that country are buying food. It helps me in understanding their approach towards food. It‘s important because food is our gasoline. Finding a nice and lively food market in a city or country is an important sign for me,” he said.

The trends and lessons of contemporary Lithuanian cuisine were further discussed at the second Lithuanian Gastronomy Forum which this year focused on multiculturalism as the foundation of the new Lithuanian gastronomy. Throughout the history Lithuanian cuisine was influenced by French, Italian and German gastronomic traditions as well as Jewish, tartar and other oriental cultures that reached Lithuania through its ethnic minorities. This mix of cultures and the cuisine that grew out of it were the main topics of all presentations and discussions at the forum.

ABOUT GO VILNIUS

Go Vilnius is the official tourism and business development agency of the City of Vilnius. The agency provides visitors, investors, relocating talent, entrepreneurs and businesses with all the essential information they need to know about the Lithuanian capital. Go Vilnius offers information on everything from real estate to leisure activities in Vilnius, simplifying the process of travelling, relocating to, or investing in Vilnius.

How to Choose Clothes for Little Princesses

Children try to imitate adults in everything. At an early age, girls like to try on different outfits, and they want to look fashionable. The current range of products allows you choosing items that are perfect for each particular child, emphasize her personality, and form a sense of style. Every girl’s mother wants her daughter to look like a real princess. Parents need to know a lot of nuances and details in order to choose the most beautiful and convenient children’s items.

What Clothes for Girls is Considered Fashionable

The children’s fashion industry has recently been gaining tremendous momentum. In many ways, it is similar to an adult one, although, of course, dresses and skirts invariably remain favorite items of cute baby girl clothes. So, here are some modern fashion trends for girls:

  • Elegant dresses in retro style. The emphasis is on simple cut and beautiful prints.
  • Pastel and neutral colors. Such shades as khaki, burgundy are considered very fashionable this season. They not only look very stylish but also do not get too dirty.
  • Interesting prints. Drawings on clothes are very common today. Cartoon characters, flowers, unusual abstractions. It looks really very beautiful, especially if the color scheme is selected correctly.

Of course, it is important for the baby to feel comfortable in her outfit. The child’s skin is very sensitive, that’s why a kid can sometimes feel uncomfortable. Therefore, the choice of clothing for children must be approached very responsibly.

How to Choose Qualitative Clothes for a Girl

In order to buy qualitative, comfortable clothes, pay attention to the following aspects:

  • Fabric structure. Synthetics often don’t absorb sweat and cause a rash, so cotton or linen items should be bought. Synthetic materials are bad for your baby’s sensitive skin. Especially when it comes to underwear. As practice shows, clothes made from natural fabrics are much more useful for a little kid. All bodysuits, vests, romper suits and other items made from natural fabrics cause no allergies.
  • Label. A label sewn into the seam can cause allergies even on adults’ skin, so there’s nothing to say about the delicate child’s skin. Therefore, you need to buy only those items where all the information about the product is painted on fabric.
  • Comfort. Firstly, comfortable clothing fits the child, does not twist, does not constrict movements and lets your child both enjoy playing at the playground and sleep well in her bed. Secondly, comfortable clothing lets the skin breathe, as well as absorbs moisture well. You should not buy items with a bunch of buttons or laces — the simpler the clothes you can put on and take off, the better. In general, buttons and Velcro are the best fasteners to choose from.

Guided by these simple rules, it will be easy to buy good and beautiful clothes for a little girl. Don’t think that high-quality children’s clothing is expensive — it can be found at a low price. To save money without sacrificing quality, it’s suggested to shop at Trendy Toddlers. Here you can find clothes for girls for all occasions: clothing for sleeping, relaxing at home, playing sports, walking on the playground and much more.

Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture

As winter begins and covers Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture in snow, the region comes alive with lights and a variety of festivals perfect for travelers who are new to the region, as well as repeat visitors. 

“Snow monsters” and relaxation at Mount Zao
When winter rolls around to the mountains in Miyagi, the cold weather conditions cause the fir trees to be covered in frozen snow, creating unique, dramatic and impressive figures. Every year, these “snow monsters” known as juhyo populate Mount Zao and are visited by tourists and locals alike. At the Miyagi Zao Sumikawa Snow Park, guests can ride the snowcat, aptly named “Wild Monster,” which takes them up to the vast forest of snow creatures.

For those also looking to relax during their stay on Mount Zao, the Gaga Onsen is a beautiful ryokan with all the blessings of nature mixed with the comforts of luxurious accommodations. Designed for healing the body and mind, Gaga Onsen features five different types of baths, including the rustic Tenku no Yu, a private open-air bath overlooking a river, which guests can reserve free of charge.

Aone Onsen Yukiakari
Every year at the Aone Onsen, a special snow illumination, or “Yukiakari,” is created by locals. Adults and children alike come together to build miniature snow shrines, each with their own candle. The result is a magical view of more than 2,000 candles, and visitors are encouraged to build and light their own shrines as well. The festival is also a wonderful chance to try local pork miso soup and raw konjac while surrounded by the snow-capped Zao Mountains.

The Dontosai Festival
Every year, people flock to the Osaki Hachiman Shrine to burn their New Year’s decorations in a massive bonfire as a ritual to rid themselves of bad luck, as well as pray for health and good fortune. The real event begins on the 14th of January when participants walk half-naked through the city streets to the shrine. During this 300-year-old parade, men dressed only in white boxers, a straw belt and straw shoes ring a hand bell to herald the coming year while cleansing themselves of the previous year. While visitors generally can’t partake in the parade, they are more than welcome to watch along with the city and enjoy a wide variety of festival foods.

Sendai’s Pageant of Starlight
Every year in December, Sendai lights up in one of Japan’s largest holiday illuminations in the country: the Sendai Pageant of Starlight. After beginning in 1985, the illuminations have gotten bigger and better every year since. Visitors are encouraged to stroll down the main streets of the city or take a walk down the Tunnel of Illumination, an installation with more than 600,000 lights strung across zelkova trees along Jozenji-dori Street. Kotodai-koen Park nearby also has a ton of displays while locals also visit the seasonal ice rink, Shimin Hiroba Square, and warm up inside one of the pop-up beer tents.
