Joško Stella, Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board: Judging by the interest, an enviable number of guests from the American market could visit us this year

first_img“Both the attendance and interest were excellent, and judging by the interest in the stand of the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board, an enviable number of guests from the American market could visit us this year.”, said the director of the Split – Dalmatia County Tourist Board, Joško Stella. The Americans stay in Split for 7 days in the middle of winter If the day is known in the morning, then Split is another great tourist year. In the heart of winter in January, Split was visited by 10.254 tourists, or 20 percent more than last year’s first month of the year, and the number of overnight stays of 27.792 in January was 14 percent higher than last year. “It’s all more than a great wind in the back, considering the fact that the Americans took seventh place in terms of the number of arrivals last year. They realized 473 thousand overnight stays, or 13 percent more than in previous periods. And that is certainly one of the relevant reasons for our already traditional presence at this extremely important fair. “said Stella. The Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board is optimistic after an excellent presentation at the New York Times Travel Show held at the end of last month, which brought together 550 exhibitors from 170 countries. “The prize game exceeded all our expectations. The lucky winner was truly overjoyed with the win. She will receive a paid vacation, secured top accommodation, air tickets sponsored by Croatia Airlines in partnership with the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board and the Split Tourist Board, while accommodation will be provided by the Sunčani Hvar hotel and the Cornaro hotel in Split. The five remaining lucky ones went home each with a bottle of Kaštela’s prized wine sponsored by the Kaštela Tourist Board. Summarizing our participation, we can say with pleasure that this fair helps us to better position ourselves in the American market. “, Joško Stella told us. The delegation of the Split-Dalmatia County included representatives of Sunčani Hvar, the high-class Split hotel Cornaro Hotel, and people from the Tourist Board of the cities of Split and Kaštela. The number of American tourists visiting this county is growing year by year. According to Stella, the Split-Dalmatia County has become one of the most important destinations for Americans. As part of the presentation, a prize game was organized at the stand, which attracted great interest. This is not surprising, because the prize fund included 14 nights, seven in Sunčani Hvar and seven days in the Cornaro Hotel in Split. This was the third presentation of the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board at the fair in New York. The best and most beautiful natural beauties and cultural sights were presented, as well as everything that American guests are most interested in, including the locations where the episodes of the Game of Thrones series were filmed, and the film Mamma Mia. After Stella from New York and his team, reinforced by representatives from the private sector from the Split-Dalmatia County, he also went to Atlanta for a work shop. Other Croatian counties will join them there. The task is clear, they are waiting for presentation, promotion, but also concluding even better deals with American agencies. In addition to guests from neighboring BiH, which were the highest in Split in January (2.727), at the very top in terms of attendance in Split and in January are US citizens who arrived in January 311 and who had 2.163 overnight stays in the city, which is 18 percent more than last year. It is also important to point out that guests from the USA stayed in Split for an average of 7 days in January. During January, a total of 6.247 foreign guests and 4.007 domestic guests visited Split, and the structure of tourist traffic shows that the promotion of Split as an interesting tourist city reaches every corner of the world outside the summer months. All business information from agencies and travel organizers from the USA to Croatia says that it is realistic to expect that tourists from the USA will be the most numerous guests of Split in 2020 as well.last_img read more

Tennis News Rafael Nadal wins Montreal Masters, secures record 35th ATP Masters 1000 title

first_imgRafael Nadal won his 35th ATP Masters 1000 title.Novak Djokovic has won 33 ATP Masters 1000 title.Daniil Medvedev became the highest ranked Russian player. For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Montreal: Rafael Nadal completed a 6-3, 6-0 demolition of Russian Daniil Medvedev to win in Montreal on Sunday and extend his record haul of Masters 1000 titles. The world number two secured his 35th Masters crown, pulling clear by two in that category from Novak Djokovic, who has won 33 of the elite tournaments. Claycourt king Nadal successfully defended a hard court title for the first time in his career. “It was important to start the match in a good shape,” the 18-time Grand Slam winner said. “He came in playing so well, playing a lot of matches the last weeks,” Nadal added of Medvedev, who was runner-up to Nick Kyrgios in Washington last week.”Nadal, in contrast, had played just three hard court matches since starting his build up to the US Open this week — reaching the final on a walkover when injured Gael Monfils pulled out of their scheduled semi-final. “I played a solid match, my best of the week so far without a doubt,” Nadal said. “I did a lot of things well: changing directions, changing rhythm during the point. The slice worked well this afternoon. I think I played smart, I had a good feeling on the ball.”With all that going for him, Nadal needed just 70 minutes to subdue Medvedev, breaking the Russian four times. ‘Incredible’ Rafa The top seed, who now owns five Canadian title dating to 2005, swept the last seven games in the hardcourt blowout against his 23-year-old Russian opponent — who had never played Nadal before.”I’ve played Roger (Federer) two times, Novak (Djokovic) four times,” Medvedev said. “I knew how it was going to be, I was kind of ready for it. But I didn’t manage to probably show my best tennis. Rafa was incredible today. Congrats to him.” Despite the lopsided defeat, Medvedev was pleased with his time in Toronto. “I believe this was the best week ever,” said Medvedev, who will move up to a career high of eighth in the world on Monday, making him the highest-ranked Russian.”My level during all the matches was extremely good. I would have liked to do better today, but it happens. I will take experience from this match and try to do better next time.” For Nadal it was a third title of 2019, after clay court success at Rome and the French Open. He is due to complete his US Open preparations playing next week’s Cincinnati masters, where he’ll be seeded second behind Djokovic and ahead of No. 3 Federer.center_img highlightslast_img read more

Live blog transcript of the second presidential debate

first_imgTonight, President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney met for their second presidential debate, and the Daily Trojan live blogged it. Here is the transcript. 6:11 SC: An undecided voter asks Romney how his administration would differ from Bush II’s administration. He outlines a number of points distancing himself from the disasters of the past Republican administration, emphasizing that Republicans have focused too much on big business for too long and promising to support small businesses. SC: Obama says that Romney’s only plans to compensate for the lower tax revenue under a Romney administration is to cut funding for “Big Bird and defunding Planned Parenthood.” He failed to mention that Romney plans to slash spending in multiple areas, most notably in carrying out entitlement reform. EK: First question from a first-time voter: How can you reassure me that I’ll be able to support myself after I graduate? Romney starts with a reference to his John and Abigail Scholarship in Massachusetts (What does that have to do with his potential term as president? Is he going to apply that policy across the board if elected? Seems unlikely.) He then tumbles downward into vague statements about making sure students can pay off their loans and get jobs. Here we are again, Romney. Where are the specifics? 7:31SC: Romney says he will work to make America the most attractive place for business in the world while also ensuring that our trading partners in the global market “play by the rules,” especially China. 7:24EK: Obama on gun control: If young people have opportunities, they’re less likely to engage in these kind of acts. 6:35 EK: “What is the biggest difference between you and George W. Bush?” Great question. 6:42 EK: Obama: “Romney doesn’t have a five-point plan, he has a one-point plan” that helps the wealthiest Americans and squeezes the middle class. 6:12 6:32 7:08SC: Romney corrects Obama on his claim that he supported the controversial Arizona immigration law as one that should be emulated throughout the country. Romney instead says that he supports the e-verify aspect of the legislation. 7:02EK: Obama says he’s done everything he can on his own to fix the nation’s broken immigration system. Not quite true, but it’s definitely good to remember how partisanship has impeded progress on the issue. SC: Obama calls Romney out on his promise to repeal Obamacare as hypocritical, since Romney’s healthcare reform as Massachusetts governor was basically the same. Romney has failed to substantially counter that thus far, detracting from his credibility on sticking to his word on the issue. 6:09 7:39SC: Obama: “Everyone should have a fair shot.” Romney understands that this does not mean equality of outcome, but rather equality of opportunity. Let’s hope that Romney’s perspective will win out for the next four years. 7:01EK: Romney on his immigration policy: “This is a nation of immigrants. We welcome people coming to this country as immigrants…We welcome legal immigrants.” So let’s put in place an employment verification system that will force millions of illegal immigrants who are vital to the economy to leave. 6:18 7:01SC: “We welcome legal immigrants in this country.” Romney backs this up by saying that the process of immigration needs to be streamlined within a more expedient legal process in order to allow hardworking, law-abiding individuals to make their own contributions to the US. Where he differs from Obama is that he would not reward illegal behavior, such as giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. 6:36 6:07 6:10 SC: Important question from a college student graduating in 2014 regarding employment after graduation. Good question, but insufficient answers from both candidates. At least both Romney and Obama are committed to maintaining grants and loans for college students. 6:43 7:35EK: Romney says he cares about 100% of the American people. We’ve heard him say that in defense of his 47% comment — tell us something NEW to debunk conceptions we already have. 6:55 EK: PS: Paul Ryan voted against Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Oh and he’s pro-life. There’s another major women and family issue. 6:46 6:44center_img SC: Romney says that some flexibility is necessary if equity in the workplace for women is to be advanced. He says there are 3.5 million more women living in poverty now than at the beginning of Obama’s term, and that employers need to be flexible to allow working mothers to get good, well-paying jobs. Obama also pledges to continue fighting discrimination in all areas should he be elected to another term. EK: Romney is not President Bush, but it’s crucial to think about what putting a Republican back in office for the next four years would mean for the country. EK: Obama makes a great analogy by comparing Romney’s tax plan to a potential investment that Romney himself, as an incredibly successful investor, would not have gone forward with. EK: Obama makes an important comment about Bush vs. Romney: Bush supported immigration reform. Romney? Self-deportation. I’d like to see him respond to that. 6:52 7:35EK: Last question of the night: “What do you believe is the biggest misperception that the American people have about you as a man and the candidate? Using specific examples, can you debunk that perception and set us straight?” 6:51 EK: Obama’s response sounds solid, but is not really what relates to students specifically. SC: Obama mentions Romney’s plan to defund Planned Parenthood for the second time in this debate… this seems a bit like a strategic attack on Romney as anti-woman rather than a sincere commitment to women’s health. EK: Both candidates give solid answers to a young woman’s question about rectifying gender inequalities in the workplace. Obama makes a key point about increasing pell grant funds (which Paul Ryan has promised to slash) for young female students and Romney a good example about making recruitment efforts while governor of Massachusetts. SC: Obama’s claim that a Romney administration would outsource jobs for tax breaks doesn’t make sense in light of Romney’s plans for fostering a better environment for business at home, including cutting start-up and capital gains taxes on small businesses. SC: There it is again. Planned Parenthood. Except this time, Obama is effectively praising George Bush for not planning to eliminate it. Time to focus on something else. 6:56 6:48 6:49 7:33EK: Obama’s realism is refreshing. There are some jobs we’re not going to get back. 7:16SC: Romney’s at first fair assessment of the attack that killed Ambassador Stevens in Libya turned negative when he accused Obama of going on campaign trips in the days following the disaster. It makes Romney look like an opportunist taking advantage of a tragedy for political gain. He might need to backtrack on that one. EK: Candy refocuses gas prices question for Obama: “Are we looking at the new normal?” He doesn’t answer her question, but does promise consistency in his gas and energy policies. 5:59 7:39EK: Obama on misconception that he believes government creates jobs. He says no true — he believes in innovation and individual initiative; that everyone should have a fair shot and play by the same rules. And finally drops 47%, which is kind of trite at this point but sure hammers a point home. EK: I get Romney’s Obama-record-bashing rhetoric, but honestly, would Romney have done any better in his shoes? Editorial director Elena Kadvany and opinion columnist Sarah Cueva will be live blogging the second presidential debate, Elena from a liberal perspective and Sarah from a conservative one. Check the Daily Trojan website and Twitter (@dailytrojan) for updates! 6:47 SC: In his rebuttal, Romney repeats that he will not cut taxes for the top 5% of income-earners but adds that he will cut taxes for the middle class, something which he did not emphasize in his initial argument. This seems a little more like a save in response to Obama’s support for middle class tax cuts than a sincere dedication to the economic health of the middle class. 7:17EK: The audience claps for the first time in response to Obama’s correction of Romney’s accusation that he didn’t call the Benghazi attack an act of terror the day after the attack. Well-deserved applause. But why are we stuck in this game of he said he said? 7:36EK: Romney is not debunking, he’s repeating. 7:37SC: Romney says that his long presence in the private sector will allow him to bring his real-life experiences to government. The perspective of a successful businessman-turned-president seems a little more promising in fixing the economy than does a second Obama turn. SC: “Let’s take advantage of the energy resources we have as well as energy resources for the future.” Romney’s plan to get America energy independent within eight years is about maximizing our energy production potential with our own resources and creating more jobs right here at home. 6:17last_img read more

Stalled Control Bill sees Irish IBA set-up ‘DIY fund’ for fighting addiction

first_img Related Articles Share Share Irish bookmakers demand clarity on reopening orders June 17, 2020 Submit Irish bookmakers to reopen on 29 June May 28, 2020 StumbleUpon Paddy Power to reopen English & Irish betting shops in Royal Ascot week June 10, 2020 Sharon Byrne – IBAFrustration at the Irish government’s inability to reform the nation’s gambling framework has led the Irish Bookmakers Association (IBA) to form an independent trust funding gambling-harm prevention services.The fund is being developed by IBA chair Sharon Byrne, who seeks the support of national health charities in creating an Irish network for tackling and preventing gambling addictions.Speaking to The Sunday Times this weekend, Byrne detailed that Irish betting stakeholders could no longer wait for the government to implement the much debated – ‘Gambling Control Bill’.“We saw no movement on the legislation so we went the DIY route,” Bryne told The Sunday Times.The IBA chair maintains that Irish bookmakers want to be better regulated, with the nation adopting a clear mandate on betting standards and social responsibilities.Leading the IBA, Bryne details that its members should replicate standards set by the UK Gambling Commission.“There is a blueprint for what is done in the UK which our members already adhere to, so we’re going to follow that where we can. The UK is the most stringent system in many ways and we plan to be ahead of that in Ireland. That’s our motto.”Irish betting’s social context grabbed media headlines last week, as President Michael D Higgins stated his concerns related to gambling overexposure in sports.Higgins suggested that perhaps the Dáil should move to ban or restrict betting advertising through sports verticals.Furthermore, betting incumbents were criticised last month when it emerged that the Irish betting addiction helpline promoted by bookmakers had been un-manned for a significant period of time.First proposed in 2013, the ‘Gambling Control Bill’ has seen little progress on delivering its mandate, as Irish political parties disagree on the framework’s ‘General Scheme’ and the management and function of a new independent body overseeing the Irish betting sector.last_img read more
