The bill enables new investments in health tourism

first_imgToday, the 60th session of the Government of the Republic of Croatia was held in Banski dvori, and the Bill on the Provision of Services in Tourism was sent to the Croatian Parliament.Minister Gari Cappelli said that the proposed law transposes the European Union Directive from 2015 on travel in package arrangements and related travel arrangements into the legal order of the Republic of Croatia. “During the work on the text of this legal proposal, we assessed that the existing law is restrictive for the development of the overall provision of services in tourism and strengthening the competitiveness of Croatian tourism.”, He emphasized. Speaking about the novelties proposed by the law, the Minister mentioned the reduction of administrative barriers to starting, but also continuing entrepreneurial activity and prescribing services that are considered tourist services of health tourism, adding that the possible circle of providers of tourist services in health tourism is expanding.Tourist services are additionally regulated in congress tourism, as well as the provision of car rental services without a driver and who can provide them and under what conditions. Services are also being regulated tourist diving and allows the church and religious communities to organize pilgrimages and other journeys in the function of promoting and manifesting the faith. The provision of services is regulated tourist guide citizens of another Contracting State to the Treaty on the European Economic Area and the Swiss Confederation on a temporary or occasional basis, as well as the abolition of seminars and professional examinations for heads of higher education institutions and only the passing of professional examinations for heads of affairs before the examination commission. It is also planned to reduce the amount of misdemeanor fines, and introduce more lenient treatment of tourist inspectors towards service providers who commit misdemeanors by applying the principle of opportunity, ie by prescribing the possibility to eliminate irregularities and deficiencies identified in inspections without punishment.Finally, Minister Cappelli said that for the implementation of this Act it is not necessary to provide additional funds in the state budget of the Republic of Croatia, nor in the budgets of local and regional self-government units.Minister of Justice Dražen Bošnjaković explained that the Proposal of the Law on Amendments to the Law on Obligations is closely related to the Law on Provision of Services in Tourism. The proposed law proposes to delete Articles 881 to 903 of the Law on Obligations which regulate the contract on travel organization, which transposed into Croatian legislation the (old) Directive on travel in package arrangements (from 13 June 1990) which was placed out of force with the new Directive on Travel in Package Arrangements and Related Travel Arrangements (of 25 November 2015), which will be transposed into Croatian legislation by the new Law on the Provision of Services in Tourism.The draft Law on the Provision of Services in Tourism is mostly focused on the work of travel agencies as well as on tourist guides.

Inter coach : I didn’t want to give Eriksen his debut

first_img The Dane made his debut in Wednesday night’s Coppa Italia win over Fiorentina. Eriksen completed his switch from Spurs to San Siro on Tuesday, joining the Nerazzurri in a £16.8million deal. And he was swiftly into the heart of the action in Wednesday’s quarter-final clash, coming on as a substitute with 24 minutes remaining, replacing Alexis Sanchez. “We did not intend to use Eriksen so soon, as he only started training with us yesterday, but Matias Vecino and Barella were the only available midfielders,” Conte told Rai Sport.Advertisement Inter Milan coach, Antonio Conte, admits he didn’t plan to hand Christian Eriksen a debut. “Eriksen has character and raises the quality level of the squad. I hope to get more players back, because we really are limited in the middle. “We tried a system with a trequarista today to deal with the absence of Stefano Sensi and Marcelo Brozovic. “Eriksen can play in a few different roles, and we’ll see – it could be an option, but we need to work on it a lot more.

Small adjustment keys Stoddard in Empire State win

first_imgTyler Stoddard became a first-time IMCA Modified Empire State Series winner on July 15 at Thunder Mountain Speedway. The win was also his first in the division since 2015 and came after “a ton” of second-place showings. (Photo by Mojo Photos)CENTER LISLE, N.Y. (July 15) – Tyler Stoddard has seen a lot of countryside traveling to a lot of different tracks over the seven years he’s followed the Empire State Series for IMCA Modifieds.On Saturday, he got his first view of the tour from victory lane.Stoddard won his first career series feature, and first IMCA Modified event since 2015, at Thunder Mountain Speedway. The 2016 tour runner-up noted that he’d made one small adjustment, suggested by car builder Bob Bills by text earlier in the day.“It seems like I’ve always been the bridesmaid. I’ve got a ton of second-place finishes,” he said. “This win was just unbelievable especially because going into this race we had been having setup issues with the car.”Stoddard started outside pole and fell back to third briefly before getting the second spot, behind Gary Lamphere.Three early cautions came out but Stoddard had the lead before midway in the 20-lapper.Lapped traffic was not a factor as Bumps Scott, Rich Michael Jr., Will Ward and Keith Jack Lamphere chased Stoddard to the $750 checkers.“Once I got out front I just put it on cruise control and concentrated on hitting my marks,” Stoddard said.Feature results – 1. Tyler Stoddard; 2. Bumps Scutt; 3. Rich Michael Jr.; 4. Will Ward; 5. Keith Jack Lamphere; 6. Gary Roberts; 7. Rodney Morgan; 8. Ray McClure; 9. Mike Stoddard; 10. Gary Lamphere; 11. Billy Ward; 12.

LA Clippers’ stars know team not currently elite

first_img“We’ve won games we should have won, but we have to be better than that if we expect to be a playoff (team) and contend.”Scouting the ThunderOklahoma City will enter Monday’s game with a record of 18-9 and a winner of seven of its past eight. The Thunder are led by the two-headed monster of point guard Russell Westbrook and small forward Kevin Durant.Westbrook is averaging 25.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 9.5 assists. Durant is averaging 27.0 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists.UpcomingAfter Monday, the Clippers won’t play again until Christmas night when they face the Lakers, the home team for that game. The Clippers will then play at Utah on Saturday, at Washington on Dec. 28, at Charlotte on Dec. 30 and at New Orleans on New Year’s Eve. Twenty-eight games into the season, and the Clippers are still without a defining victory. Blake Griffin and Chris Paul – the team’s two stars – know it, too. Both were hard on the team following its 107-97 loss Saturday at Houston, the second leg of a Texas two-step in which the Clippers lost a night earlier at San Antonio.“We’re not a team that anybody needs to worry about, not right now,” said Paul, whose team plays host to Oklahoma City on Monday night at 7:30 at Staples Center. “I think we still have a lot of work to do. Being how our team was last year, we are behind, as far as figuring out that trust and stuff like that, so we just have to keep building.”The thing that keeps Paul sane is he knows the talent is there for the Clippers to be one of the elite teams.“It is somewhat frustrating, but the thing about it is, there are a lot of teams right now that, realistically, they don’t have a chance,” said Paul, who scored 12 points Saturday on just 3-of-13 shooting; the team fell behind 43-17 early in the second quarter. “For us, the toughest part is just knowing what we are capable of and if we figure it out, we can be dangerous.” The Clippers (16-12) have two victories over Detroit, one each over Dallas, Memphis and Orlando. Those are the only wins over teams currently over .500, but three of the five came during the first 2 1/2 weeks of the season, which is now nearly two months old.The Clippers have lost twice to Golden State, to San Antonio, Indiana, Chicago and Toronto. They have now lost twice to Houston as well – once at Staples Center, once at Toyota Center in Houston – and the Rockets are only .500 at 14-14.Golden State and San Antonio have the Nos. 1 and 2 top records in the league and Chicago, Indiana and Toronto are all in the top five in the Eastern Conference standings.Griffin understands what’s going on.“We have a lot of room for improvement and I’m not really into giving grades, but we have a lot of room to improve in a lot of different areas,” he said. “There is nothing really to be happy about. We haven’t won any big games, any games that when you go into them, you think this is one we have to get; but we’ve lost all those games.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Beef crisis agreement reached as dispute talks end

first_imgAn agreement to the end beef crisis has been reached after marathon talks over the weekend, the agriculture minister has confirmed.The deal includes an immediate increase in prices for farmers and reform of the Irish beef sector.The agreement withdraws all legal proceedings against farm organisations and individual farmers. Dozens of farmers in Carrigans joined the nationwide protest last month outside the Foyle Meats factory.All parties to the agreement agreed to work to end blockades and protests at meat factories.Cattle slaughtering at blockaded plants has been halted during the talks process.Some retailers have experienced beef supply issues and several large processors are struggling to meet export contracts, as a result of the protest. The deal will see the current bonus for 30-month cattle increase from 12 to 20 cent per kilo.A new bonus for steers and heifers aged 30-36 months, of eight cent a kilo, is to be introduced.And a new bonus is also to be introduced for some O grade cattle, the 12 cent a kilo bonus will benefit dairy farmers in particular.A new Beef Taskforce is to be established. It will examine the beef industry and will be independently chaired.An independent review of price composition in the supply chain is also to be commissioned. In a statement, the Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed said: “I wish to thank all participants in this process for their contribution towards agreeing a way forward for the Irish beef sector.“I hope that this agreement will prove to be a first step in fostering stronger partnerships in this critical sector for the Irish economy and for rural Ireland.”Meat Industry Ireland welcomed the agreement this afternoon.In a statement released this afternoon, MII said: “We recognise the challenges all involved in our industry face. The agreed package contains significant positive financial initiatives by MII members, in areas of specifications, bonuses and supply chain transparency. “The agreement requires that all protests and illegal blockades cease immediately so that normal processing can recommence, employees can return to work, farmers can sell their animals, and efforts can be made to rebuild customer confidence.“This has been an extremely damaging episode for all stakeholders in the beef and sheep sectors. It has occurred at a time of significant and continuing challenges in the EU beef market.“It is of particular concern given the closeness of Brexit and the major implications that a no-deal outcome presents for our sector,” said the statement.Beef crisis agreement reached as dispute talks end was last modified: September 15th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Yellow perch retriever

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We enjoyed a long weekend of fishing and fireworks over last month’s Independence Day as the Armitage clan visited Geneva on the Lake (GOTL) to gather photos and first-hand experiences for an article on America’s Best Boardwalks for AAA Home & Away magazine. We stayed at The Lodge at Geneva, a former state park property that is one of our new-found favorite accommodations, steps away from a classic “boardwalk” scene that you’ll have to read about for details. We towed the family boat up and spent our days fishing the open waters of Lake Erie within sight of the waterfront Lodge and the GOTL strip. We quickly learned that the walleye bite was off that weekend, and quickly turned to jerking perch from depths as much as 70 feet below the hull of our 20-foot center console boat.Yellow perch don’t grow larger, and any fish over 10 inches qualifies as a “jumbo” on most boats. My wife Maria gave me a serious stink eye when I attempted to swing aboard — rather than net — a huge perch she had hooked and brought to the side of the boat.  The perch threw the hook the moment I lifted it out of the water and with a flip of a deep-green tail it swam back into the depths.Or at least it tried. While my bride berated me for losing her trophy, the fish failed to fin back to the depths due to a serious case of the bends from being cranked up so quickly from such depths. Soon it was bobbing on the surface just off the transom but out of reach of the net I should have use the first time it was boat-side — and now drifting farther away from our firmly anchored craft.Realizing the rare second chance at catching the jumbo perch, before I knew it bikini-clad Maria had grabbed the net and jumped overboard, dog-paddling toward her fish in the 68 degree water. Netting the flopping yellow leviathan, she sculled her way one-handed back to the boat, arriving waterlogged and refreshed on the 80-degree day. Her hard-won perch was a dandy, measuring just over the 13-inch mark that qualified it for Fish Ohio trophy catch honors and a certificate, and accolades from her son and husband for the over-the top effort.last_img read more

May 25, Dan Uetrecht

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We finished planting around May 12. We have just had exceptional weather. It has almost been a picture perfect planting year. For the first time I can remember, we started planting and we didn’t stop one day until we were finished. We usually have to stop because we get rained out or we get a wetter farm and we have to wait for it to dry out. Everything just went well this year. In the last couple of years we’ve had big rains and we had to replant, but this year everything looks really good. Everything is growing fast. Cutworms and other early problems thrive on the cooler, wetter conditions and we just haven’t had that. The rains have been enough to keep up but it is a concern that the rains have been so scattered. You may see it rain two inches and 10 miles away it is two tenths. We started sidedressing last Wednesday and yesterday we sprayed the wheat with fungicide. The wheat is looking really good and it keeps getting better. It thrives in this dry weather. We started post- spraying beans and touching up some corn. I think the preemerge won’t work quite as well this year because it has been so dry. Wheat is the only crop I continue to use a fungicide on. Wheat is such a quality issue that we try to protect it as much as we can. We just automatically spray our wheat with fungicide because most of it goes to a miller and they need high quality and high test-weight. If you don’t have high quality wheat you can hardly give it away. We just started baling hay. We kept waiting to mow the hay because there was rain in the forecast. We finally got a window and we started baling our hay yesterday and should finish today. I would call it an average first cutting. There wasn’t an overabundance of moisture but it was good and it won’t get rained on. I think we are in really good shape. If we can get some timely rains I think it will set up for a nice year.last_img read more
