(The program is subject to change until the last moment)The seasonality of Croatian tourism is already a well-known problem, and we should have started thinking about cases of “overtourism” a long time ago. How can we use technology to extend the season and make it easier to reach tourists outside of the hot summer months? What technological trends can help us with that today? What are the trends in, which are only current hyping and how to start introducing new trends in domestic tourism?The presentation will be given by the director of the conference, Oleg Maštruko, together with a partner in an adventure, Sasa Cvetojevic – the two of them are like Team Tesla a couple of weeks ago they returned from a rally in Africa, where, according to available information, they were the first crew to cross Sahara electric car, Saša’s Tesla X. The 3T conference was the sponsor of this unique project, and it will be the first where you will be able to hear their experiences live, first hand.”When we organized the 3T – Tourism, Travel and Tech conference for the first time last year, it was a kind of lottery, because we didn’t know what reactions we would get.. Now, with last year’s experience, we know that the place of direct connection, networking, and the exchange of knowledge and ideas between the two most successful Croatian branches of the economy, more than necessary, and between visitors and companies – well received. For this year’s edition of the 3T – Tourism, Travel and Tech conference, we are preparing an abundance of fresh and current content, which you can see more about on the conference website, especially as the date approaches”Points out Oleg Maštruko, conference director.According to relevant data, Croatia has the largest share of tourism in the gross national product (GDP) of all EU countries. Tourism is vital for us, and the IT industry is the most active, most profitable and fastest growing branch in recent years. The main question is whether Croatia can achieve synergy of the two sectors?How will it be shaped, and what trends will the tourism industry follow in the coming years? What will be the impact of technology? If you are serious about tourism and if you want to do tourism in the future, these are the questions you need to ask yourself, because all new trends and technologies directly affect your business, and day by day it will affect more and more.Early bird conference registrations 3T – Tourism, Travel & Tech are available in the Entrio system.

Backroom staff join Martinez

first_img And another reunion is on the cards as Wigan chairman Dave Whelan claims Martinez is the favourite to sign striker Arouna Kone from the relegated club despite bids from two other sides. “Roberto has taken who he wants with him,” the Latics chairman told Press Association Sport. “That deal has been done and we have already filled the vacancies.” Whelan said there was no compensation involved as he regarded the settlement he received from Everton for Martinez, believed to be around £1.5million for the Spaniard’s final year of his contract, enough. “We wouldn’t even attempt to (get compensation) for staff who worked with Roberto as we got what was due to us for Roberto,” he added. Kone appears the next in line to join the migration to Goodison Park despite competition from elsewhere. “Three clubs have made offers for him – Everton is definitely one – as he had a clause in his contract that he could go if someone paid £5million,” Whelan added. “It is really up to him where he wants to go now and I think he will go to Everton.” However, Whelan is keen to hang on to his other key players – such as midfielder James McCarthy – to give Martinez’s successor Owen Coyle every chance of getting back in the Premier League. “We have always got interest in one or two lads but we have hopes of holding on to them,” said the Wigan chairman. “We have had people asking of course but we have had nothing serious on the table.” Press Association Assistant Graeme Jones, chief scout Kevin Reeves and goalkeeping coach Inaki Bergara plus a member of the Latics’ medical staff have all followed the Spaniard to the Premier League club. Their arrival was made possible by the departure of Steve Round, Jimmy Lumsden and Chris Woods to Manchester United to link up again with former Toffees boss David Moyes. center_img New Everton manager Roberto Martinez has been reunited with key members of his Wigan backroom staff after a deal was completed to take them to Goodison Park.last_img read more

The meaning behind the MLB bobblehead on Dwight’s desk in ‘The Office’

first_imgThat player is Mike Lieberthal. He is a two-time All-Star, a Gold Glove winner and a member of the Phillies’ Wall of Fame.You might not have thought much of this bobblehead considering it represents a Phillies player and the fictional Dunder Mifflin paper company is based in Pennsylvania. Maybe Dwight just likes the Phillies.Also, if you know about Lieberthal’s minor league baseball career, you know he played for the Triple-A baseball team in Scranton, where the show is based. It is a fun piece of trivia, but there’s actually another layer behind this bobblehead.MORE:  Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZNLet’s check out Lieberthal’s profile on ever-trusty Wikipedia. (NBC) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/eb/7a/dwight-schrute-desk-bobblehead-ftr_vfrftgu131sg1d34u2a666qzd.png?t=562790570&w=500&quality=80 That’s right — his full name is Michael Scott Lieberthal. (Credit to Reddit user  m_rose95 for discovering this.)Dwight spends much of the series trying to gain Michael Scott’s affection. Michael even calls Dwight a “kiss ass” at one point. So it’s hilarious that even a seemingly innocent bobblehead of a baseball player on Dwight’s desk plays into this theme throughout the series. MORE:  Ranking the top 20 sports moments of ‘The Office’And if you don’t buy into that, then recall this quote from Dwight: “People underestimate the power of nostalgia. If baseball can use it to get people to care about that worthless sport, then I can use it to get my siblings to care about the farm.”So Dwight clearly isn’t a baseball fan. But he loves Michael so much, he has baseball memorabilia on his desk.center_img (Wikipedia) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/df/8c/mike-lieberthal-ftr_bz39dzgh0i7t1pgizajj92rau.png?t=563302570&w=500&quality=80 If you are an avid viewer of “The Office,” you might have noticed a bobblehead of a Phillies player on Dwight Shrute’s desk.last_img read more

Cricket: PCB trolled on social media following a spelling mistake in their tweet

first_imgAdvertisement(Photo Courtesy: India Today)The hype last Wednesday reached unexpected levels as fans were eagerly waiting to witness the arch rivals, India and Pakistan go head to head after they last met in the Champions Trophy final last year.But the game failed to live up to the expectations as Pakistan who were put in to bat first bundled out for a cheap score of 162. India then wasted no time and chased down the target in ease to close this rather one sided affair.Last year though it was a completely different story with the bat and ball as Pakistan thumped India to lift their maiden Champions Trophy after Fakhar Zaman shined with the bat and Mohammad Amir produced a gem of a spell to bamboozle the Indian top order.Recalling that joyful occasion, the twitter handle of the PCB posted the highlights of the game ahead of their Asia Cup encounter in a bid to increase their fan’s intensity. But to their surprise, the video left them in a tussle after the caption contained a spelling mistake.There was a spelling mistake in it which read, “Here are the highlights of what ‘hepoened’ when last time #INDvPAK ODI was played. Can Green Shirts redo today what they did at the Oval last year?#HarSaansMeinBolo“Here are the highlights of what hepoened when last time #INDvPAK ODI was played.
