Hvar Tourist Boards have united! Signed an agreement on the separation of local tourist boards in the area of ​​the island of Hvar

first_imgWith this agreement, the current tourist boards, which include the Tourist Boards of Hvar, Stari Grad, Jelsa, Sucuraj and Vrbovska, will develop joint projects and programs and implement joint promotional and marketing activities, and jointly develop and promote the entire island of Hvar.  An agreement on the association of local tourist boards in the area of ​​the island of Hvar was signed in the town of Hvar today. Hvar Tourist Board – Wow how nice it sounds. Finally, because the synergy and branding of regions, and especially islands, is the only logical one, and not that there are x tourist communities on one island that do not cooperate and each develops its own tourism. Crazy and counter productive. The signing of the agreement was also attended by the Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli, who pointed out that today the foundations for mutual cooperation have been laid and the beginning of a new story for the entire island of Hvar. “With this agreement, the island of Hvar becomes a complete story in terms of tourism, a tourist destination that can be better developed and promoted under one name and brand. This agreement is an example of what we wanted through our legislative changes, to encourage the association of destinations that work together to have a much better position in the market and develop projects that will stimulate overall economic development. Numerous synergy effects should result from this, not only in the quality of market performance in the entire area, but also in the much-needed cost efficiency in the field of project promotion and implementation.. ” pointed out Minister Cappelli during the signing of the agreement.  According to data from the eVisitor system, the island of Hvar was visited by 338.000 guest tourists last year, who spent 1,7 million nights. Guests from Slovenia, Germany, Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Poland and the United States spent the most nights.  Do you want market development or the status quo and stagnation? That’s the only question you have to ask yourself. If you want to move forward, then synergy and association is the only right path. There is no alternative. It should be reminded that with the adoption of the package of tourist laws in the Croatian Parliament this year, ie the Law on Tourist Boards and Promotion of Croatian Tourism, the Law on Membership in Tourist Boards and the Law on Tourist Tax, financial instruments were introduced (Fund for Underdeveloped Tourism and Continent and united tourist boards) which enable more transparent financing of both regional and local tourist boards in underdeveloped tourist areas and encourage the association of tourist boards.  This is news that should have been published at least 10 years ago, but better late than never. I hope that this move will encourage other islands (Rab, Krk, Brač, etc. da) to understand that only with synergy and one brand can they move forward. It has nothing to do with politics, but exclusively with market development. News of the year! Incredibly! Finally! Unreal! Synergy is possible! – so we could put the title (that we are a click byte medium), but in this case the news that the tourist boards on the island of Hvar have joined can certainly bear the aforementioned epithets. The signing of the Agreement on Association of Local Tourist Boards of the Island of Hvar was attended by the President of the Hvar Tourist Board Rikardo Novak, President of the Old Town Tourist Board Antonio Škarpa, President of the Jelsa and Vrboska Tourist Board Nikša Peronja and President of the Sućuraj Tourist Board Ivan Slavić. and signed a joint agreement, last_img read more

Important to listen to all sides of debate

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Either we have free speech in this country or we don’t. We’re allowed to criticize or argue with another’s free speech. We aren’t allowed to stifle it. We can also shun and ignore another’s opinions, which diminishes their power.I suggest listening. If we don’t listen to the “opposition,” we won’t know what they’re thinking. You can’t deal with (possible) problems of which you’re not aware.Always remember that the “opposition” really believes they’re right. And so do we. We can hope for meeting in the middle. Compromise isn’t a dirty word.Our educational institutions should keep in mind their goals and purpose.Marilyn B.

Dominica government wants to bridge ICT gap among women

first_imgLocalNews Dominica government wants to bridge ICT gap among women by: – April 28, 2012 17 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share Sharecenter_img Tweet Share Hon. Ambrose George (file photo)The Dominica government through its Information Technology minister is seeking to get more women involved in the Information Communications Sector with a view to bridging that gap.Information Minister Ambrose George made this disclosure while addressing the nation in observance of International Girls In ICT Day on Wednesday.According to him, while many of the country’s women become users of technology, there is a fundamental gap in those who peruse careers in the field.George explained that the day will be celebrated on each 4th Thursday in April of every year, when girls will be availed of greater possibilities to get themselves acquainted with the opportunities for education and work in the ICT field.“The objectives of such an event, emanated from Dominica’s wider ICT vision. This also fits into Dominica’s wider international embrace of the UN goal to promote gender equality and empower women,” he added.He also noted that the observance will also serve as a new modality of awareness and provide a much needed boost to females in the ICT sector.“This is all the more important at a time when many countries are now forecasting a shortage of ICT professionals within the next ten years. More importantly, the ICT sector provides excellent employment opportunities for entrepreneurship and good remuneration,” he said.George said ICT seems to permeate every sector and is having an impact on how “learn, work, do business and how we communicate and interact socially”.The government he said, is working closely with private sector companies to allow girls to see frost hand technologyDominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

World Cup final loss still hurts: New Zealand coach

first_imgAUCKLAND: Tuesday will mark one year of the epic World Cup final at the Lord’s where New Zealand had lost to hosts England on boundary count-back rule after scores were tied even after the super over. New Zealand coach Gary Stead said there is no ‘bitterness’ but he still feels a “wee bit of hurt” about the loss. “I think there’s a wee bit of hurt from time to time and I guess any Kiwi fan is probably very much in that same boat. There’s no bitterness at all, we understood the rules going into the match,” Stead said as New Zealand’s top cricketers resumed their training after the coronavirus-forced break. “It’s a hard one because there’s some great emotions that came from that tournament as well, but unfortunately it was just that final hurdle we didn’t cross. It’s something I’m sure will drive the players to keep wanting to get better every day.” The 48-year-old said he still feels a “bit numb” but remains extremely proud of the way his boys played the entire tournament. “I do think about it a bit, I think everyone has really different emotions around it. The thing that stands out for me is that it’s all a bit numb, really, in some ways but enormously proud of the way we played the whole tournament.” “As a Kiwi and as a supporter of the Blackcaps it was hard to be any more proud of the way they played and fought in that match,” he added. Stead, on Monday, also dismissed speculations that he had tried to remove Kane Williamson from Test captaincy, saying ‘there is no truth’ in them and his relation with the skipper remains “strong”. Following New Zealand’s 0-3 defeat at the hands of Australia earlier this year, rumours surfaced that Stead preferred left-handed batsman Tom Latham for Test captaincy over incumbent Williamson. “There’s no truth to it … that was certainly news to me… certainly had no conversations around that sort of thing,” Stead was quoted as saying by ‘Newshub’ as he opened up on the issue for the first time. “At this stage, Kane’s our man. He’s the guy we’ve backed, he’s been a great leader for this team and I’m sure he will be in the future as well.” Agencies Also Watch: High Court Rejects BPF Plea Against Governor’s Ruled In BTADlast_img read more

Stalemates the order of night one as Limacol football begins

first_imgNO winners were found on the opening night of the Petra-organised 2017 Limacol Round-Robin Knock-Out Football tournament as tense action ensued at the GFC ground, Bourda.In the first game, the Mahaica Determinators took an early lead against Guyana Police Force through Eion Abel in the second minute.The Police, however, did what was required in producing an equaliser just five minutes from the half through Dwayne Charles.Abel again put the Mahaica side in the lead in the 56th minute but this was short-lived as the boys in blue produced another equalising effort in the 57th through Quincy Holder.Both teams pushed for the determining goal but neither coverted run-downs into the much-needed goal.The feature game produced the same result as Riddim Squad held Camptown to a 1-1 draw.Both teams were reliant on late goals as Teon Jones’ 82nd minute strike was cancelled by Jason Williams six minutes later.Matches return to the GFC ground on Friday., with Western Tigers going toe-to-toe with New Amsterdam United in a Group B clash, while Santos are down to play Ann’s Grove in Group C action. Both games are set for the GFC ground.The following day the event will move to the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) ground in Linden with Milerock battling Northern Rangers and Winners Connection facing off with Grove Hi-Tech in Group A.The final matches of round one on January 29 will pit Uitvlugt against Eagles United in Group B and Pouderoyen against Den Amstel in Group C at a venue to be announced.The winners of the tournament will take home $500 000 and a trophy while the second-, third- and fourth-placed teams will receive $250 000, $125 000 and $75 000 respectively.Additionally, the winners of each group will receive $100 000 while the respective finishers will pocket $50 000, $30 000 and $20 000 apiece.last_img read more

Associated Press Dustin Johnson decides against playing in the OlympicsUNDATED (AP) — On the fence about the Olympics at the start of the year, PGA star Dustin Johnson decided he won’t be going.Johnson’s manager said in a text message Monday that the FedEx Cup playoffs hold as much importance to Johnson as chasing a gold medal in Tokyo this summer.Johnson’s name was removed from the Olympic golf ranking Monday afternoon. At No. 5 in the world ranking, he currently would have been No. 3 among Americans behind Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas. Countries are allowed a maximum of four players in golf provided they are among the top 15 in the world ranking. Johnson was the leading American for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro when he decided at the last minute to withdraw because of concerns over the Zika virus.ESPN-CHIPPER JONES The Jayhawks received all 64 first-place votes from the media panel in The Associated Press men’s college basketball poll. Gonzaga was No. 2, with Dayton, Baylor and San Diego State rounding out the top five.The Aztecs, No. 9 Maryland and No. 18 Iowa were the only teams to hold their place after a week in which nine Top 25 teams lost to unranked opponents.Dayton has its highest ranking since reaching No. 2 in 1955-56 after stretching its winning streak to 18 games.Virginia, Illinois and Wisconsin moved into the poll.

(AP) — A North Carolina judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a former college football player charged with violating the state’s sports agent law nearly a decade ago.Christopher Hawkins faced four counts tied to providing cash to three former Tar Heels football players in 2010. But after more than seven hours of deliberations Friday afternoon and Monday, the jury, in Hillsborough, said that it couldn’t reach an unanimous verdict on any charge.That leaves open the possibility of another trial.Hawkins – who played at UNC and Marshall from 2001-05 – was first charged in 2015, with prosecutors adding additional charges last April. NBA-KNICKS PRESIDENTKnicks hire longtime player agent Leon Rose as presidentNEW YORK (AP) — The New York Knicks have hired Leon Rose as their president, hoping the longtime player agent can be just as successful as an executive.Rose is taking over what has become one of the NBA’s worst franchises, headed toward its seventh straight season out of the playoffs. But teams such as Golden State and the Lakers have found success handing their basketball operations to an agent and the Knicks are hoping to do the same.Rose, the former co-head of the basketball division at CAA Sports, replaces Steve Mills, who was fired early last month. Ngakoue announced his desire to play elsewhere via social media. It could force Jacksonville to place the franchise tag on the 24-year-old disgruntled defender and trade him.Ngakoue says “I’m thankful for the journey and look forward to continuing my career elsewhere.”Ngakoue has 37 1/2 sacks and 14 forced fumbles in four seasons.The speedy strip-sack specialist made the Pro Bowl in 2017 and had been seeking around $22 million a year to remain in Jacksonville.MLB-DODGERS-BELLINGER Chipper Jones joins ESPN lineupBRISTOL, Conn.
