first_imgTZ Lošinja, as the first destination in Croatia and an excellent positive example, two weeks ago in cooperation with all tourist partners in the destination made “Insurance policy for guests “As well as clear protocols in case any of the guests have symptoms or get coronavirus. The Civil Protection Headquarters of the Istrian County gave a recommendation to make available 10% of accommodation capacities for people who could be in self-isolation. Martina Nimac Kalcina, ZOT HGK: It is necessary to adopt unique recommendations at the national level for guests in family accommodation who are determined by self-isolation Yesterday, on behalf of the Family Tourism Association, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce sent an official letter to the Ministry of Tourism on this issue with a question related to the issue of guests who will be assigned a measure of self-isolation. “We are all aware that there is no ideal solution, but at least to try to solve some situations in advance, in accordance with the possibilities.”Said Martina Nimac Kalcina, President of the Family Tourism Association at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. It is certainly not correct for the cost to be borne by the landlord, so it is necessary to clearly define all the protocols to avoid confusion or misconduct. Just a positive example of practice and reaction to the whole situation of the Mali Lošinj Tourist Board, opened the issue of covering the cost of self-isolation of the rest of the family in other destinations, in case one of the guests has symptoms or coronavirus, and raised renters with a logical question: Who will cover the cost of self-isolation of guests? The landlord himself or someone else, as in the case of Lošinj? Also, TZ Lošinja covers the cost of accommodation and meals for guests or their families in case of self-isolation in 14-day self-isolation. Coronavirus information related to the tourism sector / / / TZ Lošinja made an “Insurance Policy” for guests in the case As he points out Martina Nimac Kalcina, President of the Family Tourism Association (ZOT) at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce expects the Ministry of Tourism to adopt aa unique recommendation of action for guests in family accommodation who have been assigned self-isolation Attachment: Numbers of on-duty territorially competent epidemiologists / List of telephone numbers of epidemiologists on standby As Nimac Kalcina points out, the mentioned recommendation, as a rule, for a smaller number of accommodation units available to renters, does not enable compliance with the Recommendations, and also seeks the opinion of the MINT on the recommendation of the Civil Protection Headquarters of Istria. Also, the question arises as to who will covered the cost of cleaning the apartment? since the space must be specially disinfected and this must not be done by the landlord himself, according to the recommendations of the CNIPH. Recommendation of the Civil Protection Headquarters of the County of Istria Who will cover the cost of self-isolating guests in case any of the guests have symptoms or get coronavirus? As some of the possible solutions from ZOT HGK, they listed 3 proposals: The tourism ministry will publish clear recommendations by the end of the week Namely, in case of doubt, the guest does not go to the doctor himself but must contact the reception of the hotel or the owner of the accommodation. Then the questionnaire made by the Lošinj Tourist Board is filled in at the level of the entire destination, and the hotel or the landlord calls the doctor and the epidemiological service. “If a family member becomes ill with covid19, he is transported to a hospital or must remain in self-isolation, depending on the epidemiologist’s assessment. If he has to go to the hospital for treatment, the family remains in self-isolation, and the cost of accommodation and meals will be covered by the Lošinj Tourist Board. Also, if a new guest needs to come during the self-insulation, we will provide alternative accommodation in cooperation with the landlord and the agency, and the Lošinj Tourist Board will cover the cost of cleaning the apartment, as the space must be disinfected and the landlord must not do it. The goal is not to localize any eventual case as soon as possible, and to take care of our guests so that they feel safe and so that in the case of self-isolation they do not feel alone, because they are in another country.”Points out Dalibor Cvitković, director of the Mali Lošinj Tourist Board, and concludes that guests can really feel safe on Lošinj and that they are prepared for all situations, if any. guests in self-isolation who came by car to be allowed to go to their home country, with clear instructions on how to behave on the road. that regional and local authorities physically lease a number of reception units and cover the costs of accommodation for persons in self-isolationto coordinate with the tourist communities for the coordination of the process of responsibilities which should help the hosts in finding new accommodation Coordinated by the Ministry of Tourism and the National Civil Protection Headquarters by the end of this week, MINT will publish clear recommendations for self-isolation for guests in family accommodation, as well as answer the question of covering costs in case of family self-isolation.last_img read more

first_img The current QPR manager said in his new book, A Man Walks On To a Pitch, which is being serialised in the Daily Mail, that he met the former Arsenal enforcer at his house before the Frenchman ultimately decided to remain at Inter Milan in 2009. Despite his strong connections with Spurs’ north London rivals, Redknapp felt Vieira was unfazed by the negative attention the move would inevitably attract. “I met him at his house in Hampstead and he had no fear about what people would think or what reception he would get. He had enough confidence in his ability to just brush it away,” he said in the Mail. “I remember talking to Daniel Levy, our chairman, about him. He said the crowd would be hostile. I knew that – but if he had enough bottle to want to put on our white shirt after all that had gone before, I thought it said something about the man.” In the end though, Vieira decided to stay put in Italy for a few months before he moved to Manchester City in January 2010. Redknapp also revealed his regret at not signing Luis Suarez – before he left Ajax to join Liverpool in 2011 – after the Uruguayan received a glowing reference from Ruud Gullit. “Despite all that has happened in his career since, one of the biggest regrets of my life in management is not taking Luis Suarez to Tottenham when we had the chance,” he added. ” ‘You’ve got to take him, Harry,’ Ruud Gullit told me. ‘He’s fantastic.'” Redknapp said that he was initially unsure about Suarez, but when he decided to sign him the asking price became a problem for Spurs. He said: “Just when I was on the verge of taking the plunge, the price went up. In the end he was sold for £22.8million to Liverpool. We wouldn’t have paid that.” Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed how close he came to signing Patrick Vieira during his reign at White Hart Lane.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img“It happens. You can’t do anything about it now,” Cowan said. “(Scott’s message) was to regroup and refocus and worry about what’s in front of you.” The opportunity for an instant recovery awaits Saturday at Utah. A year ago UCLA quarterback Ben Olson picked apart the Utes’ predominantly man coverage en route to throwing for 318 yards and three TDs. Cowan said the Utes are playing a similar defense this season. “It’s an opportunity for receivers to get open,” Cowan said. “It’s exciting. It’s fun to see that.” Blake, Verner to start Dorrell said defensive end Nikola Dragovic (concussion) will not play against BYU. Junior Tom Blake, a former walk-on transfer from UC Davis, will start. Dorrell also said sophomore Alterraun Verner would get his second straight start at cornerback in the place of senior Rodney Van, who was limited last week with an ankle injury. Van is expected to play. Around the nation Texas senior safety Tyrell Gatewood was suspended indefinitely after his arrest on drug charges, the fifth arrest of a Longhorns player since June. Freshman defensive back Ben Wells, 18, who was riding with Gatewood when he was pulled over late Wednesday, was given a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia and released. Gatewood, 22, was charged with two counts of possession of a dangerous drug.

The stern talking to came after UCLA’s receivers dropped five passes in last week’s 10-point defeat of BYU, and quickly overshadowed a tremendous start to the season a week earlier at Stanford. Senior Joe Cowan, who caught two touchdown passes against the Cardinal, was the biggest culprit, dropping three balls. Redshirt freshman Dominique Johnson dropped a pair of passes. “Football is about consistency, and everyone needs to become more consistent, more focused,” Scott said. “Either you want to do it, or you don’t. That’s the bottom line. These guys are talented. It’s just time to step up. It’s time to do it.” UCLA’s receiving corps, led by Marcus Everett, Brandon Breazell and Cowan, is arguably the deepest unit in the Pacific-10. But, the past few years, dropped passes have been a bugaboo for the unit. More perplexing is the group was coming off a stellar five-touchdown performance at Stanford, before the bumbling against BYU. By Brian Dohn STAFF WRITER UCLA receivers coach Eric Scott gathered his unit on Spaulding Field after a practice earlier this week, and gave them a simple message. “Good or great?” said Scott, relaying the cleaned-up version of his speech. “What do you want to be?” last_img read more

first_imgThis post isn’t really wordless but telling the story of this young fellow, like showing his smile, is hard to resist.A few months ago, my daughter and I were eating at a local restaurant and this young fellow and his grandfather were sitting next to us. I asked the young man about his uniform. He told me where he and his grandfather purchased the uniform and how he got to visit the army base with his grandfather.  After some probing, he continued to tell me why he wears a military uniform.His great-grandfather served in World War II.  No older than 10 years old, he knew all the places his great-grandfather fought and could retell the stories as they had been told to him.Though the details of the stories were fascinating, it was the animation and voice inflection mixed with the slow syllables and the Alabama-Southern twang that boomed with pride.  It was clear that he liked telling these stories and was glad someone was asking about them. Somewhere mixed in his story, he let me know that he was adopted and felt very happy he could tell about his adopted great-grandfather. He also let me know he wants to become a Marine when he grows up, even though his great-grandfather was not a Marine.This conversation with this young man reminded me of the pride and resilience like I’ve seen with many military family members. Sometimes the general public is not attuned to the “calling” of protecting our country and serving in the military. We sometimes miss the underlying resilience of military families and sometimes we don’t understand the hardships and, at times, how different military life is from civilian life.We, in the Military Families Learning Network, are very proud to serve those who serve military families. We look forward to this year’s professional development and educational efforts in personal finance, family advocacy, child care, and online networks.last_img read more
