first_imgWe have already traveled to Rab by Krka by bike and on foot with organized transport, but also by scooter. The combination with the scooter seems to me the best for hot summer days. The ride is pleasant, there are always places on the ferry, but there is also a place for a scooter in every parking lot, and parking is not paid. The ferry line Valbiska – Lopar is one of the longest. It travels an hour and forty minutes. The ride on the large, modern Jadrolinija “Krka” is comfortable and interesting. The boat passes by Plavnik, from the deck you can see Stara Baška, Prvić, Grgur, partly Goli… The Kvarner islands form a unique archipelago of the largest Adriatic islands and smaller ones, but equally interesting and unique in all respects. Krk is a bridge to the Kvarner islands. On the one hand by a bridge connected to the mainland on the other hand by good ferry lines with Cres, Lošinj and Rab. Via Rab and Stinica, you can easily reach Prizna and take a ferry to Žigljen to “step” on Pag. And Zadar is not far from Pag either… Author: Nedo PInezić, www.nedopinezic.com Photo: Kvarner.hr I often hear that “guests have nothing to do”, “we have no content”, “nothing is offered”… It is not uncommon for people who are not familiar enough with the offer of attractions in their immediate environment to say so. If as a host you do not know your area, then you can hardly suggest a new experience to the guest, a new experience that will further strengthen his satisfaction with staying with you. You can call the island of Rab an island of happiness, an island of contrast, an island of beaches, an island of “Rapska fjera”, good gastronomy, nautical… and you won’t go wrong. Rab is all that and much more. It simply invites you to visit it again in some other way. For example by bike, or to rent a boat and tour it by the sea; and you can embark on an expedition to discover the interior by hiking to abandoned hamlets… WE HAVE ATTRACTIONS, BUT WE HAVE NO ACTION We are only slowly discovering Rab, like other Kvarner islands. For starters we can confirm that we have around us a lot of content and attractions that are interesting to our guests but we have to help them discover them. RAB IS SPECIAL KVARNER ISLANDS The price of a return ticket for a scooter with two passengers without a discount is HRK 280,00. The cost of fuel for touring the entire island of Rab does not exceed 20,00 kn, and a scooter can be rented on Krk from 300,00 kn per day. The total cost of a full day trip to Rab from Krk with a tour of the entire island of Rab for two people is 600,00 kn for transport and another 400,00 kn for food, souvenirs and the like. For only 66 euros per person it is possible to experience an unforgettable experience of riding a big boat from Valbiska to Lopar, swimming on “Paradise Beach” in Lopar, on “Suha Punta”, visit Supetarska Draga, Kampor, the town of Rab, Barbat „ Related news: BY KVARNER ISLANDS BY BIKE, SCOOTER, BUT ALSO ON FOOT ILLEGALITY IN THE LAW ON TOURIST TAXlast_img read more

first_imgThe home had not undergone a major renovation in a long time.Agent Tom Uhlich from Place – Bulimba said Tarragindi might not be as well knows as its neighbouring suburbs like Stones Corner, but there was a lot of interest when things do go on the market. “I’ve lived there for 15 years and when I mentioned it a lot of people did not even know where it was,” Mr Uhlich said. “I think it is getting a lot more recognition.”He pointed to a recently renovated five-bedroom home just two streets over at 20 Landor St that went for $1.63 million in January as an example of the surging interest in the area. Two bidders put their money on the line when it came time to bid. LUCKY NUMBERS: Glen Hazlett and Amanda Hanaghan turned to numerology to help sell this home. Pic Mark Cranitch.GETTING the bidding underway at exactly 11.14am might seem unconventional, but for the owner of a rundown property at Tarragindi there was a method behind this.A follower of numerology, Glen Hazlett picked the precise time as the numbers 1, 1, 1 and 4 added up to 7, which was a lucky number for himself and his partner.He hoped the precise timing might give a numerological boost to the auction proceedings for his home at 10 Weal Avenue.But he was unlucky with the home passing in after bidding stalled at $725,000.The three-bedroom weatherboard house was far from the most attractive home in the street, and had not been significantly renovated since it was built in the 1970s.Mr Hazlett picked up the home just before his 21st birthday in 1990 for just $103,000, and planned to sell it to raise funds to help children with ADHD and other learning difficulties.

first_imgViterbi’s Venture Incubation Program, created to help USC students develop their ideas from startups into innovative companies, has recently announced this year’s 11 teams. These entrepreneurs will be given tools to build prototypes, receive funding and effectively grow their businesses.Founded last year, VIP is a student-run incubator for tech startups that is open to all current USC students. It provides its teams with technical support, mentors and a co-working space, in addition to industry guest speakers. Participants need to be committed to their startups, which at the outset of the program varies from early-stage business plans to fully-launched companies.VIP is located in the USC Hacker House on Adams Boulevard, where groups have access to workspace five days a week as well as a suite of technologies at their fingertips, such as 3D printing, virtual reality and motion sensors. Teams are paired with mentors that give feedback and advice on anything from product development to investor presentations.VIP seeks to foster a collaborative environment between teams, creating a community of like-minded innovators. Participants have frequent opportunities to provide feedback and suggestions to other teams, with an emphasis on collective success rather than competition.“We think of our [VIP’s] environment as more of a community than other incubators,” said Natalie Riso, vice president of marketing for VIP. “We have monthly dinners where teams talk about their current struggles and successes together and how they overcame different obstacles.”VIP also hosts speakers often to connect groups with industry leaders, who share their professional experiences with students. Past speakers have included tech mogul Evan Spiegel, founder of Snapchat, and Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit.Last year, VIP’s inaugural cohort boasted the largest percentage of its teams that received funding of all USC incubator programs. After VIP, startups go on to continue cultivating their products and services, receive financial support from venture capitalists or operate as an independent business. EnvoyNow, a popular app where students can order food for delivery from local restaurants, was selected for VIP last year.HostelPass, a participant in VIP, is a startup that provides travelers an easy method for booking hostels while on the go and won last year’s “1000 Pitches” competition.“Everyone in the VIP program has incredible ideas,” said Sarah Weingust, a senior majoring in psychology and a partner with HostelPass, in an email to the Daily Trojan. “I am excited to see how far we come collectively and individually through this process.”Trakfire was also chosen to participate in VIP this year. Trakfire provides a platform where undiscovered artists have the opportunity to post their music and receive feedback from users via an upvote polling system. Music industry giant Jimmy Iovine serves as a mentor for the Trakfire team, and Troy Carter from the popular television show Shark Tank featured Trakfire as one of the top startups on his tech accelerator, SMASHD.VIP is also working to create its first ever Startup Career Fair in February. Open to the public, attendees will be able to visit teams’ booths to learn about their companies and available job opportunities.“The Venture Incubation Program is the newest and most comprehensive technology incubator in the USC ecosystem,” Riso said. “We strive to take and create companies that are ready for success regardless of their education level or specific industry.”The program is currently accepting applications on a rolling basis, and interested students can visit VIP’s website or Facebook page for more information on applying.last_img read more

first_imgGay Byrne is being remembered as the voice of RTÉ in our lifetime, a pioneer and a man of exceptional talent today following the sad news of his death at the age of 85.The veteran broadcaster passed away at his home in Dublin following a long illness.He was a broadcasting legend, but in West Donegal, he is being thought of as a popular neighbour. Gay and his wife Kathleen bought a holiday home outside Dungloe 40 years ago and enjoyed their summers in the north west. Donegal Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher has expressed his deep personal sadness on the death of Gay Byrne today. In the tribute, Deputy Gallagher hailed Gay as “the pioneer of Irish broadcasting pushing the boundaries out, breaking new ground and charting new courses on otherwise uncharted territory – some called it controversial but to Gay it was just breaking new ground and natural journalism.”Depury Gallagher also celebrated Gay’s connections to the county: “A frequent visitor to Donegal, where he made his second home in Tubberkeen just outside my native hometown of Dungloe, overlooking Dungloe Bay.  It is here he spent his free time with his wife and daughters. He compered the Mary from Dungloe Crowning Cabaret for many years and was also an adjudicator. “He was a very loyal adopted Dungloe man and visited there right up to recent years.  He together with his wife Kathleen and close friends could be seen walking and cycling the roads and the byways of the Rosses. Gay drew great solace from the peace and quiet of west Donegal where he was left to his own devices, and he came and went as one of our own.” Deputy Gallagher continued: “The passing of Gay is the end of an era of great Irish broadcasters, a career that spanned 60 years or more, a career that was an active agent of change and challenge to Irish societal views. “Gay Byrne’s place in broadcasting history is guaranteed for eternity because he was the original of our time and the pioneer that used the medium of broadcasting to change for the better a country’s very social fabric and understanding of modern life.“I wish to convey my deepest sympathies to his wife Kathleen, his daughters Crona, Suzy, grandchildren and wider family circle. His colleagues from RTÉ and all those who worked with him.“Gay was a true champion of public service and his duty to the people of Ireland will be unequalled by any other, he devoted his life to public service broadcasting, his listenership or viewers were his lifetime friends and they in turn viewed him as Uncle Gaybo.“Eternal rest grant unto him.” West Donegal TD remembers Gay Byrne as ‘one of our own’ was last modified: November 5th, 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
