Get involved in the adoption of amendments to the Law on Hospitality

first_imgThe Ministry of Tourism has proposed the Law on Amendments to the Law on Hospitality, which is available for e-Counseling, so that everyone can get involved with their proposals and advice, with the aim of making better and better decisions and laws that directly affect to the tourism sector, in this case to family accommodation.Namely, in order to grow part of the family accommodation into small family hotels, boarding houses and diffuse hotels, and enrich the overall accommodation offer, but also to encourage entrepreneurial activity of the local population and self-employment in tourism, it is necessary to design and then implement a small family hotel development program. , point out the Ministry of Tourism, and add that the measure is aimed at potential new investors, but also towards existing owners of small family hotels.It is expected that the consequences of passing the law will be raising the quality of catering services and standards of facilities in which household catering services are provided, equal position of landlords and caterers on the market, greater consumer protection due to standardization of landlord facilities, and thus fewer complaints against landlords and legislators. , enabling property owners to freely use their real estate, relieving the law of provisions that have proved inapplicable in practice, facilitating business operations and reducing business costs related to the accommodation of seasonal and field workers, effective application of misdemeanor provisions for more precise expression, all in order to strengthen overall competitiveness of Croatian tourism.Closing date is February 12. 2017 so study all of the above well and also suggest your reasoned opinion, advice and suggestions. Now is the opportunity to change things for the better, and not later on social networks, now a decision is being made, ie a new law, and now we need to give reasoned praise or criticism.e-Consulting: Law on Amendments to the Law on Hospitality ActivityRelated news:CROATIA HAS WHAT OTHERS DO NOT HAVE – FAMILY ACCOMMODATIONMINISTER CAPPELLI ANNOUNCES RECATEGORIZATION OF FAMILY ACCOMMODATION AND FAVORABLE HBOR LOANSlast_img read more

Dodgers beat Padres 5-4 after 12th-inning power outage

first_imgTied 4-4, Padres pitcher Robert Stock (0-1) walked Kemp on four pitches to begin the 12th inning. Kiké Hernandez dropped down a sacrifice bunt, sending Kemp to second base. Turner was preparing to see his first pitch from Stock when the stadium’s power supply suddenly and completely cut out.Turner had to wait patiently for his turn to bat and the most patient among the announced crowd of 53,528 – having already seen a one-run lead squandered in the ninth inning – saw their patience tested even further. It was the second power outage at Dodger Stadium this season.This time, a circuit outage on the line supplying power to the stadium was the cause, according to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.Once the lights were fully restored, Turner popped the first pitch he saw just inside the right-field line. It landed in between three Padres, none of whom relayed the ball back to the infield in time. Kemp scored easily from second base despite getting a poor jump on the ball.“I think (the Padres) just felt that Matt was further along than he was,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “If they make a play on it, it’s probably a first-and-third situation, or second-and-third. Fortunately for us they didn’t finish the play.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Max Muncy and Manny Machado each hit their 30th home runs of the season, but Kenley Jansen allowed a game-tying homer to Austin Hedges in the ninth inning.Kenta Maeda pitched a scoreless 10th inning. Caleb Ferguson (4-2) pitched a scoreless 11th and 12th to pick up the victory.The Dodgers remained in third place in the National League West, 2 1/2 games out of first place. The Colorado Rockies’ win over the St. Louis Cardinals, combined with the Arizona Diamondbacks’ loss to the Seattle Mariners, left Colorado and Arizona tied for first in the division.Kershaw threw eight innings, matching his longest start of the season. He allowed seven hits, including five singles, did not walk a batter and struck out nine.Machado’s three-run home run in the first inning staked Kershaw to a 3-0 lead. The Dodgers failed to tack on despite putting runners in scoring position in each of the next three innings, and leaving the bases loaded in the fourth. They finished 3-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.A double by Manuel Margot, followed by an RBI single by Freddy Galvis, snapped Kershaw’s shutout bid in the third inning. A solo home run by Franmil Reyes in the seventh inning brought the Padres within 3-2. Muncy’s home to right-center field – also his longest of the year at 445 feet – extended the Dodgers’ lead to 4-2 in the seventh inning.San Diego took advantage of a fielding error by Machado to get a run back in the eighth inning. With Galvis on first base and one out, Wil Myers hit a routine grounder to Machado at shortstop. Machado charged in and tried flipping the ball to Brian Dozier for a forceout at second base, but he missed his target and the ball sailed into right field.The inning continued with Galvis at third base and Myers at first. If Kershaw had not backed up third base on the play, Galvis would have scored easily when Yasiel Puig’s throw from right field missed wide of the bag.Galvis scored anyway when the next batter, Eric Hosmer, grounded out to first base. The inning ended – mercifully for the Dodgers, painfully for the Padres – when Hunter Renfroe’s 106-mph line drive hit Myers in the arm, an automatic out.“I got bailed out,” Kershaw said. “That definitely would’ve scored some runs. It’s fortunate, no other way to say it.”Because of Machado’s error, Galvis’ run was unearned and Kershaw lowered his ERA to 2.39.In the ninth inning, Jansen was called upon to preserve the 4-3 lead. It was his third appearance and his first save opportunity since returning from the disabled list Monday. Like each of the previous two outings, it did not end well.His 2-and-1 pitch to Austin Hedges, a 93-mph cut fastball, missed over the middle of the plate. Hedges connected on his 11th home run of the season, a no-doubt shot to left-center field that tied the game at 4.Jansen finished the inning but knocked a container full of gum to the dugout floor in frustration. He’s allowed a total of five runs in the last three games, losing two and blowing a save Saturday for the first time since July 6.The Dodgers’ two consecutive wins against the Padres, owners of the National League’s worst record, are nice if not necessary. But Jansen’s sudden meltdown invites a larger concern.“This has never happened before,” he said after the game.Roberts said he would try to refrain from using Jansen in Sunday’s series finale. He said he has not decided who will close instead, though he conspicuously chose to remove Maeda after one inning in order to have the right-hander available Sunday.After the Dodgers’ off-day Monday, Jansen will be the closer again for Tuesday’s game against the Texas Rangers, Roberts said. The manager conceded that a mental break might benefit the veteran closer.“Ain’t no mental break,” Jansen said. “I’m fine. I’m good. I don’t need a mental break. Me and (Roberts) already had that conversation. It was a great conversation. Just got to figure out some stuff. I think (Sunday) will be a great day to figure out my stuff, sharpen up, and be ready to go.”center_img PreviousSeveral San Diego Padres players gather in the infield during a blackout in the 12th inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, in Los Angeles.

Tourism Revenue Grew By 12.1 Per Cent in 2017

first_imgMinister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, says revenue from the tourism sector grew by 12.1 per cent in 2017, delivering $62.2 billion to the local economy.Mr. Bartlett, who was speaking in the 2018/19 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives, today (May 8), also reported that the sector is seeing an increase in employment.He noted that in 2017, tourism accounted for 8.9 per cent of the labour force, employing 122,500 workers, and generated indirect employment for another 250,000 workers.“These figures once again underscore the well-known fact that tourism is vital to the fulfilment of Vision 2030,” the Minister told the House, adding that the Ministry is committed to attracting five million tourists by 2021, the generation of US$5 billion in earnings, total direct jobs of 125,000, while adding 15,000 rooms.Mr. Bartlett said the sector is expanding at an “unprecedented pace” and remains poised to outperform the growth target of five per cent in five years, noting that for two consecutive years, tourism exceeded the five per cent projected annual growth.Last year, 4.3 million tourists visited Jamaica’s shores, with the country making history with 500,000 new visitors to the island in a single calendar year. Revenue grew in the sector from US$2.1 billion in 2016 to approximately US$3 billion in 2017.Mr. Bartlett said the Ministry will continue to give support to the security forces, and that more than $1 billion has been committed through the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) to ensure that “our destination remains safe and secure”.last_img read more

Donald Trump in his own words after meeting with the G7 in

first_imgLA MALBAIE, Que. – Donald Trump held a free-flowing news conference as he departed the G7 summit on Saturday. It was his first visit to Canada as president of the United States, and he stayed about 24 hours. Here are some highlights from his comments:On Canada and the summit: “It has worked out to be so wonderful. The people of Canada are wonderful, and it’s a great country, and a very beautiful country.”On the state of global trade: “From the standpoint of trade and jobs and being fair to companies, we are really, I think, committed. I think they are starting to be committed to a much more fair trade situation for the United States, because it has been treated very, very unfairly….And I don’t blame other leaders for that. I blame our past leaders. There was no reason that this should have happened.”On the North Korea summit: “I’ll be on a mission of peace, and we will carry in, really — in my heart, we’re going to be carrying the hearts of millions of people, people from all over the world. We have to get denuclearization. We have to get something going. We really think that North Korea will be a tremendous place in a very short period of time. And we appreciate everything that’s going on. We appreciate the working together with North Korea. They’re really working very well with us.”On bringing Russia back into the G7: “I think it would be an asset to have Russia back in. I think it would be good for the world. I think it would be good for Russia. I think it would be good for the United States. I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7.”On the ultimate goal for global trade rules: “You want a tariff-free, you want no barriers, and you want no subsidies, because you have some cases where countries are subsidizing industries, and that’s not fair. So you go tariff-free, you go barrier-free, you go subsidy-free. ….“It’s got to change. It’s going to change. I mean, it’s not a question of ‘I hope it changes.’ It’s going to change, a hundred per cent. And tariffs are going to come way down, because people cannot continue to do that. We’re like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing. And that ends.”On renegotiating NAFTA: “So two things can happen on NAFTA. We’ll either leave it the way it is, as a threesome deal with Canada and with the United States and Mexico, and change it very substantially — we’re talking about very big changes. Or we’re going to make a deal directly with Canada and directly with Mexico. Both of those things could happen.”On rating G7 friendships: “I would say that the level of relationship is a 10. We have a great relationship. Angela and Emmanuel and Justin. I would say the relationship is a 10.”last_img read more
