Last minute offers of hotel and private accommodation from now on on the portal TurističkePriče.hr

first_imgTurističkePriče.hr / Last Minute Hrvatska Keep an eye on the Viber community Total Croatia Travel INFO with all the epidemiological information in Croatia for foreign tourists, and if you want to post your last minute offer, post it in the Viber community Croatia Last Minute Deals or contact us directly at lastminute@turistickeprice.hr On the one hand, the importance and advantage of Viber groups is that users ask their inquiries and offers, we have interaction, while the advantage of the portal is that accommodation offers are structured, easier to find in one place and we have additional reach of last minute posts. Ultimately, both complement each other perfectly. “I am glad that we can be a part of a great initiative and story about the Viber community started by colleagues Paul and Krešimir. They did a great job at the right time with communication about all epidemiological measures and certainly kept many foreign tourists who were planning, and who eventually came, to spend the summer in Croatia. Ovim putem svi zajedno dodatno pomažemo našem turizmu i da se smještajni kapaciteti što bolje popune u ovoj iznimno teškoj turističkoj godini” points out Goran Rihelj, owner and chief editor of the portal HrTurizam.hr, and adds that already on the first day of publication, one accommodation was successfully booked through the site, which is great news. The TurističkePriče.hr portal is a new tourist lifestyle portal for the promotion of tourist destinations and Croatia as a tourist destination, otherwise a new project by Goran Rihelj, the founder and editor-in-chief of the HrTurizam portal. The portal is aimed at the general public and is positioned as a tourist lifestyle portal that brings positive tourist stories of our beautiful country.center_img The Viber community Total Croatia Travel INFO was created as a kind of crisis information center for tourism with all the epidemiological information in Croatia, where day by day they answer all foreign tourists to inquiries about entering Croatia. Currently, there are over 5.000 members in the Viber group, who post 300 to 500 messages / queries per day, and each query is answered on the same day. As inquiries about the accommodation offer began to be asked in the community, so the idea was born for the Viber community Croatia Last Minute Deals, which has over 3.500 members.  In collaboration with the Viber community Croatia Last Minute Deals., which publishes last minute ponude kako hotelskog tako i privatnog smještaja, a koju su pokrenuli Paul Bradbury i Krešimir Macan, od sada last minute ponude dostupne su i na portalu Turističke priče – Last Minute Hrvatska The portal contains last minute offers of hotel and private accommodation, as well as travel communities.last_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Thursday, Feb.7

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionDress code says a lot about DemocratsAnd, on it goes. Female members of Congress promoted a dress code when the president gave his State of the Union Address. Nothing wrong with that. Nursing home needs more than open doorWhile I was pleased to see your paper take an interest in the nursing home and rehab center on Altamont Avenue and give credit for an administrator putting forth an “open door policy,” this is at odds with what I hear routinely. We have an elderly friend who has fallen several times and even recently had to be found by visitors lying on the cold floor feeling frightened that no one would come.His family members are active, even in his personal care, and have had to slip notes under administrators’ doors to urge clinical evaluation for illness requiring IV therapy noted only by them. They ask for meetings and hear nothing back.An open door is a beginning, but new kinds of staff are also needed, not just more staff. RNs should know every resident’s plan of care and risks. Thanks to firefighter for life-saving actionOn Jan. 27, I was at a family birthday dinner and began choking. I was definitely in distress. Luckily, Firefighter Dan Farstad was also at dinner and just a couple of feet from me. Dan immediately came to my aid and saved my life.On behalf of myself and my family, thank you for your quick thinking, your tireless training, for never leaving my side and for risking your life every day. Whether it be white in support of women’s rights or black to give a more solemn tone, we all know that the color of one’s clothing cannot hide the blatant animosity toward the winner of the last presidential election.From the halls of Congress, we are still able to detect the smirks of resentment, which makes me think that clown suits and big shoes might have been more appropriate.Perhaps a harlequin outfit with pointy hats would have fit the bill. But, one thing is sure: If Congress, both men and women, are going to act like buffoons instead of taking care of business, maybe they should dress the part.  Allen R. RemaleyScottsdale, Ariz., and Saratoga Springs Schenectady doesn’t need new courtroom “Schenectady City Court is very busy with annual filings in excess of 18,000, in a jurisdiction with a population of 65,000, which is why we maintain that the city of Schenectady needs to provide us with a suitable court facility as they are mandated to do,” said Lucian Chalfen, public information director, New York State Unified Court System.Schenectady’s Mayor Gary McCarthy has suggested the city could survive with three City Court judges and that there’s no need to create another courtroom. So, why does the state’s court system care about that? The new courtroom will cost about $3 million, a lot for Schenectady’s citizens. In 1970, the city had a tad shy of 78,000 citizens and just one City Court judge.In 2017, the Schenectady City Court judges earned over $184,000 (base rate $175,000) because they were so “busy” they volunteered to do work as “Acting County Court” judges.There was not an excess of 18,000 annual filings in Schenectady City Court in 2018. There were 16,022, a miscalculation of nearly 20 percent.   Writer is off mark on abortion law, womenThis is in response to Denise Crisci’s Jan. 23 letter. FYI abortion is not murder. It’s a personal healthcare issue, so says the law. The writer mentioned Hitler, comparing his World War II atrocities (mutilation, starvation, torture, death) to the procedure of removing fertilized cells, which are biological, immature, non-breathing non-conscience cells.How dare you. In my world, it’s a hell of a difference between the two. And you know what might help your cause?Hearing that you personally work/volunteer with women who have to make these decisions. How can I claim to feel no guilt in letting people make the choice without high and mighty ‘religious’ zealous guilt? They should roam and monitor, but should also actively pitch in, teaching as they model care, focusing on prevention and follow-up. Legislative staffing mandates are not sufficient. They are necessary first steps ahead of Starbucks, Netflix, cocktail hours and live music. Betty PieperScotiacenter_img This is for all the times no one comes back to say that to you.It’s not taken for granted, I promise you. That goes to all of our firefighters, EMT and police. Thank you for what you do, every day!Patricia ZentkoRotterdam The year 2018 represents a decline in filings of 24 percent over 2010,  when there were two or three City Court judges.The judges have had a 69 percent increase in pay in seven years. Why is the Unified Court System interested in Schenectady? The Unified Court System’s interest and false narrative hits a little too close to what used to be my home. These courts aren’t provided for the Unified Court System. They exist for Schenectadians. Mayor McCarthy was right.Michael FriedmanLa Quinta, Calif.The writer is the former president of the Albany County Bar Association. Because “we” who have been ‘allowed’ to live are making life better for living beings, not obsessing and butting into other people’s business. I personally have volunteered in several life-affirming causes. Mentoring Mothers (working with pregnant women who have no inner circle to guide them), Partners in Caring (help for elders), Mentally challenged ‘Buddy’ and Fresh Air Fund to name a few.I’m also an elder/disabled/daycare provider. You also assume it’s only Democrats who ‘celebrate’ the removal of zygotes. I hate to tell you that people of all walks of life agree that abortion is a personal decision. Until I reside in a world that takes priority to care for living babies, children and adults, I refuse to bow to misguided buttinskies who preach about saving the unborn. Make a difference in feeling, breathing lives. They could use the help.And those ‘long lasting effects’ (of abortions) I can answer to honestly, instead of hypocrisy. Elizabeth Lerner Richmondville Pelosi comment puts real divide on displayNo matter our personal politics, the comment by the Speaker of the House regarding the location of the State of the Union address says a lot.When she referred to the Capitol, she said, “not in MY house.”This shows how great is the divide between our legislators and “We the people…”Susan CromerWaterfordMore from The Daily Gazette:Cuomo calls for clarity on administering vaccineEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov.

Netherlands sees ‘no need’ for personal-pension-products framework

first_imgThe Dutch government has argued that a proposed European framework for personal pension products would be unnecessary.Responding to the European Commission’s plans to draw up rules for personal pension products – announced at EIOPA’s annual conference in Frankfurt last week – the Dutch government said the existing rules for insurers, banks and asset managers were sufficient.It argued that Brussels should instead focus its attention on boosting second-pillar arrangements in countries where such systems are under-developed.It also said it doubted Europeans would increase pensions savings under the Commission’s proposed framework. “If people are not saving enough, it is most likely due to the specific circumstances of EU member states,” it said.The Dutch government said its local second-pillar pensions market was working properly and pointed out that it was also open to foreign providers.The European Commission’s proposal is linked with a consultation first mooted by European supervisor EIOPA about a pan-European personal pensions product (PEPP) last year.At the time, the Dutch government said it failed to see any added value in such a product.In the Commission’s opinion, personal pension products (PPPs) could help to secure adequate replacement ratios as an addition to state and worker pensions.It argues that the single market could offer more choice of products and providers, and that it would allow workers to transfer their personal pension assets easily if they moved to another country.PPPs would also be an important building block of a Capital Markets Union, it said.last_img read more

Euro 2016: England fans jailed, banned from France

first_imgTwo England fans have been jailed and banned from France after appearing in a Marseille court charged in connection with the weekend violence.Alexander Booth and Ian Hepworth were the first fans to be dealt with after the widespread trouble in the French city.It left another England fan with severe head injuries and Euro 2016 organiser Uefa threatening to ban England and Russia if there is any repeat of the violence.Booth, 20, from Huddersfield, was jailed for two months for throwing a bottle at police and banned from France for two years.Hepworth, 41, a psychiatric nurse from Sheffield, was given a three-month sentence for the same offence and the same ban. Speaking after the court hearing, Booth’s father insisted his son was innocent.Chris Booth said: “It’s the lowest of the low. I feel angry, furious, let down.”Along with my brother we came across to go to the fanzones. We got the train here from our campsite.”It started to get rowdy in the Old Port. We had been tear gassed a few times. We moved back to get out the way of things.”This is when he is supposed to have thrown the plastic glass but my brother said there’s no way he threw it. “All I can think is they said to him if you admit to this you will get out.”He’s been in a solitary cell for 48 hours, still in the same clothes. I have not been able to speak to him or see him.”I think he is being made a scapegoat of. We are all very respectable people.”I have witnessed so much violence and hooliganism during these two days. “Alex did get angry and gobby after he was pepper sprayed but we were walking to the stadium and a police officer pointed at him and he was taken off.”Electrician Alex Shephard, 24, who is pals with the youngster, revealed the cook had been looking forward to the tournament.He told Mirror.co.uk: “It’s all he’s been going on about. It’s his thing, he loves it.”He’s a sound lad, it’s a bit shocking that he’d do that. “I’ve never seen him fighting. He’s a happy lad. He’s always up for a good time, he’s quite well liked.“I think two months is a bit excessive. I don’t see that much damage.“It sounds to me more like they’ve arrested him to prove a point and to make the other fans calm down a bit.“I didn’t expect him to have got into jail. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen fans throwing worse than plastic bottles.“I’m a bit shocked really, but if he’s done wrong and they’ve got evidence there’s not much he can do really. “A lot of people will feel it’s a bit harsh on him.”When asked what he will say to his friend when he sees him next, Alex said: “I’ll say what were you doing you idiot, then I’ll be like glad you’ve made it out okay.”Lottie Scarborough, 20, who works with Alex at a pub in Holmfirth, added that she was “gobsmacked” and that the behaviour was “not like him at all”.She said: “I wouldn’t see him ever do that. I don’t believe he did do it. “I’d have to talk to him in person when he comes back to get his side.“I just thought it was stupid people doing the disorder, just idiots. I’m still so shocked.”Booth was still wearing his England shirt when he appeared in court.He said: “I have never had problems with the police, I respect the police very much. I am hard working.”The prosecutor had asked the judge to jail him for two months as that would mean the tournament would have finished by the time he was released.Booth said: “I would like to say sorry to the police and to the people and city of Marseille. This is not like me. I’m not a violent person.”I love my job and my family, I’ve never been involved in football hooliganism.”I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”Hepworth, from Sheffield, was accused of throwing a bottle at the police then walking to pick up a second bottle.The 41-year-old said he could not remember the incident.The prosecutor had asked for him to be jailed for three months, saying he knew what he was doing because he ran away afterwards.It comes after French police arrested 21 England fans for violent behaviour during the tournament – but NO Russians.Those held include a 16-year-old boy charged over throwing bottles.DID YOU KNOW?The Joy Sports ‘Inside Euro 2016’ show started on Monday evening, reviewing the action at the tournament so far with highlights from the exciting games.
