Bicycle map of the island of Hvar presented

first_imgThanks to the joint project of the Tourist Board of Split-Dalmatia County and the Cycling Association of Split-Dalmatia County, and 5 tourist boards of the island of Hvar, the island of Hvar welcomes the season with 470 kilometers and a total of 13 arranged, marked and mapped bike trails. Thus, the island of Hvar, after the Dalmatian hinterland, was the first on the coast to receive a bicycle map with technical descriptions and details, and this information can be found on the newly launched website www.dalmatia-bike.com , which is currently in beta and will soon be available in four languages.Director of the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board Joško Stella called joint projects destination management in action, which showed the importance of cooperation and coordination between county and island tourist boards, cities and municipalities, with the aim of bringing as many quality guests in pre-season and post-season. are just cyclists.I would especially like to emphasize the togetherness in the field, which is rarely seen, which in my opinion is the greatest value of this project, as well as future cooperation. Personally, I think that this is the key to the development of tourist destinations in the context of joint development through the promotion of the region, and not that each municipality or city is developed, positioned and branded separately. No city has such a capacity in content that the guest is active for more than a few days, while as a region it certainly can. Together they are stronger in every way, and it really means nothing to the guests. Guests want quality content and story and absolutely nothing represents the city this or that – they see the content and destination as Dalmatia, Slavonia, Istria, etc.…The president of the County Cycling Association, Denis Špadina, pointed out that he expressed satisfaction with the growth of cycling tourism in the county, since two years ago it did not have a single marked trail. Today, the figures show 70 2250-kilometer-long trails, seven official bicycle races and an annual income of 2m euros, and ambitious plans herald the approach of Istria, the leader in cycling tourism in Croatia.With bicycle maps of the island of Hvar and websites www.dalmatia-bike.com, the long-awaited brochure of the island of Hvar, also a joint project of five island tourist boards, was presented to the public. This brochure presents the island as a destination, and a circulation of 10 copies in five languages ​​is currently being distributed.Everyone is invited to get involved in the project, design their offer, connect with each other and find ways to take advantage of the conditions for enriching the offer provided by this project. We all live from the same product, and that is tourism. Let’s get together and tell tourist stories together.last_img read more

New Zealand: CRP Appoints London Corporate Advisers for Capital Raising

first_imgChatham Rock Phosphate has appointed London corporate finance advisers Wimmer Financial to manage an international capital raising over coming weeks.The financing, by private placement, is likely to be determined by a book build process managed in conjunction with Wimmer Financial. The offering, for qualified investors, is likely to be the final capital raising required before CRP is fully permitted.“As our project is well advanced in all other respects we see the granting of the second permit we require – the environmental or “Marine” consent – as a game changer for us,” according to Managing Director Chris Castle.He says an opportunity to invest on the same terms (including options) is unlikely to occur again.“The recently granted mining permit, the first to be granted under new legislation, faced very rigorous scrutiny indeed. The success of this application bears tribute to the undeniable merits of the project.”[mappress]Press Release, December 30, 2013last_img read more

Slater and Gordon chief: Quindell will be ‘separate entity’

first_imgQuindell’s legal services arm will remain a distinct company from its new parent Slater and Gordon once a £637m takeover is complete.Neil Kinsella (pictured), chairman of Slater and Gordon UK, told a conference today that the professional services division of the listed company will be a ‘separate entity’ from the Australian firm, dealing with volume cases. The two parties, including their shareholders, have agreed to a deal, as has the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Approval is now awaited from the Financial Conduct Authority.Kinsella told today’s Modern Claims Conference in London that the Slater and Gordon approach will not change, despite the differences between the approaches of the two sides.‘We’ve not changed our strategy at all,’ said Kinsella. ‘One side of the business would deal with complex cases and the other with volume and low-level cases in an efficient way.‘Overall [it offers] scale and the opportunity to learn across the two, [providing] technology and a holistic service and a joined-up service in terms of claimants for low-level or high-volume cases, and in particular in that complex area having resources to take on cases.’The disposal of the professional services division involves a 50-50 share of profits from future noise-induced hearing loss claims being run by Quindell, the self-proclaimed biggest listed legal services provider in the world. There are reported to be around 53,000 cases on the Quindell books.But the sector of hearing loss claims could be subject to government reform, according to Kevin Rousell, head of claims management regulation at the Ministry of Justice.Rousell told the same conference that this area has seen big increases in activity in recent years due to the regulations applied to it.‘NIHL is subject to the disease claim costs regime which is different to personal injury,’ he said. ‘There seems to be an awful lot of waste in the system. We had lots of it in respect of financial claims such as PPI and we’re seeing it happen again with NIHL.’Rousell also confirmed a reversal of court fees, increased by up to 600% by the previous government to cover the costs of running the court system, is not likely to be a priority for new justice secretary Michael Gove.‘The next five years are going to be just as testing – I doubt we will be going back and reducing court fees – we will have to live with them.’last_img read more

Conveyancers – ‘no room for complacency’

first_imgThe conveyancing market consolidated at its fastest rate in three years in 2015, according to latest sector research.Search Acumen’s conveyancing market tracker published today shows that the number of active firms registering transactions fell from 5,871 in 2014 to 5,357. The 9% drop was three times the rate of decline recorded in 2013 and 2014.The number of firms operating in the market was almost a third lower than the 7,779 firms recording transactions in 2005.Direct enquiries and personal referrals were the most common source of business growth last year, with seven in 10 firms reporting a rise in business as a result. Nearly three-quarters of conveyancers said staff recruitment and training were the biggest challenges they would have to meet to achieve further growth this year.Search Acumen chair Mark Riddick said the importance of referrals and direct enquiries as a source of new business ‘should help to focus minds on the priorities for 2016’.Riddick said there was ‘no room for a laid-back expectation that introducer-driven guaranteed business from sources like estate agents will simply keep coming through the door’.Although firms completed 287,583 transactions in the last quarter of 2015, the most since quarterly records began in 2011, transactions in 2015 were up just 0.4% on the previous year.Dispositionary first lease applications experienced a 36% rise, from 917 in 2014 to 1,248 in 2015. But the number of first registrations fell by 17%, from 24,777 transactions in 2014 to 20,442 last year.Average transaction volume among the top 1,000 firms grew by 2% in 2015, but this was lower than the 31% growth recorded in 2014.The collective market share of the top 1,000 firms reached a new high of 71% in 2015, compared with 55% in 2005.last_img read more

Phil Shiner tribunal rejects ‘manoeuvre’ to delay case

first_imgA disciplinary hearing into alleged misconduct by human rights solicitor Philip Shiner went ahead today despite a last-ditch request to adjourn proceedings. The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal rejected claims by Shiner, formerly head of Public Interest Lawyers, that he was too distressed to attend and did not have enough money to fight the charges.Andrew Tabachnik, counsel for the Solicitors Regulation Authority, which brought the charges, said Shiner was unwilling to cooperate and trying to ‘manoeuvre’ the tribunal into delaying the case.UPDATE: Shiner told ‘deliberate and calculating lies’, SDT hearsTabachnik told the Tribunal there was nothing in Shiner’s medical notes and psychological assessments that suggested he was unable to attend the hearing. The tribunal also rejected attempts to delay the hearing until Shiner could attend, saying it was in the public interest to start proceedings.Tabachnik said it would be ‘perverse’ to delay proceedings in what was already a long-running trial.Shiner, who ran claims on behalf of Iraqi civilians against British armed forces, faces 24 charges. He did not attend today’s hearing. The hearing, which is expected to last three weeks, continues.last_img read more

MAC Preview-2017 Toledo Rockets

first_img Ruben Rodriguez Related TopicsMid-American ConferenceToledo RocketsWestern Michigan Sheffield Lake,Ohio- It may be virtually impossible for the Toledo Rockets to duplicate what Western Michigan accomplished last season by escaping the Mid-American Conference undefeated.There are new challenges for second year head coach Matt Candle, and plenty of work to be done that makes this year’s run far from easy.That being said, if the Rockets can hold serve and take full advantage of their home schedule, and IF they can win the majority of the high scoring games they will surely be involved in, they’ll be in Detroit for the MAC championship.Rockets Offense———–Toledo’s offense may not be as good as their #7  NCAA ranking last season, but they’ll still be fun to watch. QB Logan Whiteside, who led the nation in 2016 with 45 TDS, with only 9 interceptions and 4129 yds passing returns, along with speedster WR’s Cody Thompson and Jon’Vea JohnsonGone from the backfield is Kareem Hunt, Terry Swanson returns and is more than capable of carrying the mail.But the biggest weakness is the loss of TE Michael Roberts, and finding a red zone target for Whiteside is priority one. Hope is that Adam Kulon or Jordan Fisher, or both can fill the hole.Rockets Defense————In the past, the Rocket defense was just an anomaly, last year it wasn’t as bad as it was feared. In 2017, the linebackers will be the strength of the defense with Ja’Wuan Woodley leading the way.Although the defensive line is not a dominant force, they will have enough experience along the line for a decent rotation.The cornerback tandem of Trevon Mathis and Ka’dar Hollman are good enough one on one and in zone coverages, but the new safeties need to emerge in the new 3-3-5 set.It all starts August 31, vs Elon, could this be the year for the Rockets? Is it finally their turn?Team ScheduleDATE OPP TIME/TVAug 31 ELON 7:00-ESPN3Sep 9 @NEV 7:00-ESPN3Sep 16 TLSA 7:00-ESPN3Sep 23 @MIAMI TBD-ACCNOct 7 EMU TBDOct 14 @CMU 3:30Oct 21 AKR TBDOct 26 @BALL 7:00Nov 2 NIU 6:00Nov 8 @OHIO TBDNov 15 @BGSU TBDNov 24 WMU TBDcenter_img Ruben joins us this fall to cover High School football.

Bruce Pearl hits AAU circuit, first time since July 2010

first_imgAUBURN — After nearly five years since he attended an AAU basketball event Bruce Pearl is back on the trail today.After 1,714 days off the AAU circuit, the Auburn coach, along with assistant Chuck Person, are in Hampton, Virginia for the Boo Williams Nike Invitational, one of the premier AAU events each year, to evaluate some of the top hoops talent from all over the country.“I think the fact that it’s April 10th of 2015 is the first time that I’ve been out on the AAU circuit since July 31, 2010 tells out how long it’s been and tells you in some way show far behind we are,” Pearl said. “I as a head coach, or as an assistant coach, one of the things that I’ve always done is I love to evaluate players. I don’t necessarily like recruiting them, but I love to evaluate them.”Though his three-year NCAA show-cause penalty ended on Aug. 24, with Auburn hosting a camp that day, the AAU circuit for last year was over by then.Events are being held all over the country this weekend as part of a three-day evaluation period on the recruiting calendar and Pearl plans to be there from start to finish.“A lot of times the way we’ve done it over the years is I’ll find them, and I’ll study them, and then I’ll tell my assistants to go get them,” Pearl said. “As opposed to the assistant coaches usually find them, study them, and then bring the head coach in to close. It’s not the way I do it. I love to be in the gym.“I will be at the 8 a.m. game, with nobody in the gym that we would even remotely be recruiting, even if it’s from geographically from some part of the country that we don’t go anywhere near, and I’ll watch that game and I’ll stay till the last game. I just love it. I’m still looking for that guy that not necessarily everybody else is looking for. It’ll be great to be back out and be in the gym.”Pearl starts his work at the Boo Williams, where Person will be all weekend, with additional stops planned in the southeast region. A member of the Pearl’s staff, likely Harris Adler, is expected to attend an event in Atlanta this weekend, with several other stops also on the docket as Auburn looks ahead to the 2016 and 2017 classes.There is still some additions to be made to this year’s recruiting class, which stands at four signees with Top 100 prospect Horace Spencer expected to join on April 15. Spencer would fill the scholarship left following the departure of Matthew Atewe, who missed last season due to a leg injury.Former Providence forward Tyler Harris, one of the top available transfers and who will be eligible immediately in the fall, is expected to visit Auburn over an upcoming weekend.“We’ve got some needs,” Pearl said. “It goes without saying that we would like to add to what is a really solid group.”last_img read more
