first_imgRELATED NEWS:COMPLETE STUDY OF ACCEPTANCE CAPACITIES OF TOURISM IN SPLIT-DALMATIA COUNTY PUBLISHED In order to know the real situation on the ground and with the aim of argumentative discussion, ie involving as many “brains” and sharing knowledge, because two heads are always smarter than one, I invite you to fill out surveys on key obstacles to agritourism in Split-Dalmatia counties.Namely, Ana Marinelić, a final year student of Management in Tourism and Hospitality Management at the Faculty of Economics in Split, is conducting a survey on the attitudes of key agritourism stakeholders on key obstacles to agrotourism development in the Split-Dalmatia County and prays that more Family farms as well as tourism experts are involved and give their opinion.The aim of the thesis is to bring a quality conclusion and possible solutions to possible problems of agritourism in the Split-Dalmatia County.Spatially the largest county in the Republic of Croatia, 14.045 km², rich in preserved nature, beautiful islands and coast, cultural attractions, from Diocletian’s Palace in Split to the old town of Hvar, Split-Dalmatia County is realizing its potential as one of the leading tourist areas. But is it really so? – Ana Marinelić asks.The high seasonal concentration of tourist demand and the pronounced coefficient of tourist saturation in coastal and island destinations, and the associated seasonal congestion of the existing communal and transport infrastructure indicate the need to diversify the tourist offer and “redirect” to rural SDŽ and agritourism. “The fact that 12.468 family farms are registered in the Split-Dalmatia County, while about 52 of them are engaged in tourism as a supplementary activity is the best indicator of the state of agritourism in the county, which really has great potential not only for tourism and the Croatian economy, but also for local population and revival. traditions ”, Marinelić points out, and invites everyone to take some time and answer the questions honestly.The survey is anonymous and all data remains strictly confidential and will be used exclusively in batch processing, and will later be used as part of a new project.

EPL: Newcastle face Hammer’s test

first_imgNewcastle vs. West Ham Venue: St. James’ Park Kick off 2:15PMWest Ham United will be attempting to build on their much-needed victory over Chelsea when they visit Newcastle United at St James’ Park this afternoon. The Hammers eased their relegation fears with the surprise derby triumph, but they remain in the mix at the bottom of the table whereas Newcastle have now surpassed the 40-point mark.Certain matches and results can often prove to be turning points in a club’s season, and West Ham will certainly be hoping that action-packed 3-2 win against an in-form Chelsea side is one of those.The Hammers went into the game on the back of three successive defeats without even scoring, yet they overcame a widely-criticised VAR decision to come from behind and pick up what could be a priceless three points at an empty London Stadium.Quite how important they are remains to be seen, but at the very least it gives them some breathing space with those three points now separating them from the relegation zone.Aston Villa, Bournemouth and Watford are all in poor form too, whereas David Moyes’s side are entering a run of fixtures that they will consider winnable – Newcastle, Burnley, Norwich City and Watford in succession. That said, they have not won back-to-back league games since August, have not kept a clean sheet in 12 outings since New Year’s Day and their away form is truly abysmal – seven successive away defeats in what is their worst run since 2006.The Hammers have also thrown away a league-high 22 points from winning positions this season, and if you were to add those to their tally then they would be in Champions League contention, level on points with Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers, rather than battling against relegation.Many parallels can be drawn between West Ham and Newcastle in terms of the demands from passionate fan bases, often of underperforming teams, but this season Newcastle have been better than most fans expected under Steve Bruce.Even so, the Magpies now seem to be playing with a freedom which was lacking when fans were in the stadium; before lockdown they had averaged just 0.9 goals per game in the Premier League, whereas since the return they have netted eight league goals at an average of 2.7 per match.Half of those goals came in Wednesday’s 4-1 win at relegation-threatened Bournemouth – a result which lifted Newcastle past the 40-point mark with six games to spare this season. Bruce’s side now need only one more win to equal their points tally from last season under Rafael Benitez, and with matches against three of the bottom six to come they will be confident of surpassing that.Newcastle head into Sunday’s match unbeaten in their last five Premier League games – their best run since 2015-16 – while they have not been beaten at home in the top flight since New Year’s Day.Indeed, they have only conceded once in their last five home league outings, and only Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United have conceded fewer on their own patch throughout the entire season.Newcastle possible XI: Dubravka, Yedlin, Schar, Fernandez, Rose, Shelvey, Hayden, Saint-Maximin, Almiron, Ritchie, Gayle. West Ham possible XI: Fabianski, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Lanzini, Yarmolenko, Antonio.RelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Newcastle set to extend winning streak EPL: Gunners gun for West Ham scalp Tags: Newcastle UnitedPremier LeagueSt james’ ParkWest Ham Unitedlast_img read more

Young Dindyal batted sensibly to score 101 (8X4s, 1X6) while Lord and Ronaldo Alimohamed supported with half centuries to lift GCC to 285-5 declared, on Sunday, before they again bowled out a depleted Ace Warriors unit for a paltry total, which resulted in an innings and 204-run victory.On Saturday, GCC, defending champions of the competition, had taken control of the clash by restricting the visitors for 38 runs, after left-arm spinners Stephon Wilson and Lord had grabbed 4-7 and 3-15.Winston Forrester supported with 2-1 from three overs.The home team had reached 127-3 by the close of play with Dindyal unbeaten on 37 and Alimohamed on 13.On Sunday morning, the pair continued to build on their lead, with Alimohamed hitting three fours and a six in a score of 52.   After Alimohamed, who captained the side, fell, regular skipper Lord joined Dindyal in the middle. When the side declared in 45 overs, Lord was left unbeaten on 54 after having struck four fours and an equal amount of sixes.The left-arm spinner then nabbed 4-21 to help restrict Ace Warriors to 43-7 in 18.1 overs.

REPORT: 41 PLAYERS LEAVE DONEGAL GAA CLUB SINCE 2008

first_imgDONEGAL’S struggle with the recession has been laid bare in a report by a leading international business newspaper.Financial Times reporter Jamie Smyth spent several days in Milford.And his report on the newspaper’s website today shows how 41 members of the local GAA club have left to start new lives abroad since 2008. The latest to leave is 28-year-old player Anthony McPaul.“The town is dying on its feet. The two banks have closed, ripping the commercial heart out of the town,” the Editor of the Tirconaill Tribune John McAteer tells Smyth.“Milford is just a microcosm of a wider malaise in rural Ireland. In Donegal the only export we have is our young people,” he says.Smyth reveals that of the 144 multi-national companies which invested in Ireland last year, 75% were in Dublin and Cork. Just one came to Donegal.Reporter Smyth writes: “Letterkenny, which was Ireland’s fastest growing town during the boom, is littered with ghost estates and half empty retail parks. Shopkeepers have suffered a huge drop in business since the crisis struck in 2008 and are not yet seeing a recovery.”The article is herehttp://www.ft.com/cms/s/73327482-2694-11e3-9dc0-00144feab7de,Authorised=false.html?_i_location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ft.com%2Fcms%2Fs%2F0%2F73327482-2694-11e3-9dc0-00144feab7de.html%3Fsiteedition%3Duk&siteedition=uk&_i_referer=#axzz2g0xrRnTc  REPORT: 41 PLAYERS LEAVE DONEGAL GAA CLUB SINCE 2008 was last modified: September 26th, 2013 by John2Share 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) Tags:Financial TimesletterkennyMilfordMILFORD GAA CLUBlast_img read more
