Dubrovnik and Split, against the liberalization of the taxi market, want to bring order

first_imgDubrovnik Mayor Mato Franković said that the fact that the Law on Liberalization of the Taxi Market in the Republic of Croatia had strong effects: “It was initially conceived as a law that would first reduce congestion and then provide a more affordable service for the use of taxi transport for all citizens, but also for visitors. Neither effect happened in Dubrovnik or Split – two UNESCO-protected cities under enormous pressure from taxis. ” Franković pointed out and added that there are currently about three thousand taxis in Dubrovnik, and before liberalization there were about 220, but services are still too expensive. ROVINJ INTRODUCES SPECIAL CONDITIONS FOR INSTALLATION OF ATMS IN THE OLD CENTER “Let others enjoy liberalization, we want to have our own autonomous ability to decide on the number and manner of using taxi services in our cities”Conclude the leading people of the city of Dubrovnik and Split. Introduction of communal order in Dubrovnik and Split A draft tender that should provide access to taxi stands in Split has been made, announced Krstulović Opara. “Chaos is created at bus stops, then we have drivers who do not know Split, and they came to make money. Let them make money, they will only work according to our rules – it is impossible for them to stop wherever they can think of, and they will enter the contact zone of the city only with our permission. In Split, we also have about three thousand taxis at the moment, which is too much, according to our first estimates, the optimal number is about 650. Traffic safety and our citizens must be a priority, far ahead of profits. pointed out  is Krstulović Opara. UNIQUE SMART PARKING SYSTEM LAUNCHED IN DUBROVNIK  DUBROVNIK: ATMs are leaving the old town  CITY OF SPLIT / Draft proposal of the Decision on conditions and manner of placing advertising objects and inscriptions in the area of ​​the City of Split Mayor Andro Krstulović Opara called on all his fellow citizens to get involved in the public consultation procedure on the draft Decision on Communal Order, which is also one of the steps towards returning public city space to citizens. Also, in the city of Split, a public consultation was opened through the Draft Proposal of the Decision on the conditions and manner of placing advertising objects and inscriptions in the area of ​​the City of Split.center_img Side dish: The mayors of Split and Dubrovnik, Andro Krstulović Opara and Mato Franković, agree that the current situation on the city roads of their cities is unsustainable, so it is necessary to amend the Road Traffic Act, which will eliminate the negative effects of taxi liberalization.   CITY OF SPLIT / Draft proposal of the Decision on communal order “By the end of August, we plan to have a draft text that we will send to the Parliament and the Government. Only my colleague Franković and I have been pointing out all these negative effects for two years now. Now, in the focus of the tourist season, all citizens, as well as those who will decide on changes to the Act, can also see and feel all the negativity. ”  Krstulović Opara emphasized. During today’s meeting, the mayors also touched on the communal order in the cities, especially the draft Decision on the communal order of the City of Split, which is currently under public consultation, and which was created in cooperation with Split and Dubrovnik and Venice. Speaking about the situation in Dubrovnik today and two years ago, Franković said that he found complete disorder and disrespect for the city, and with the consistent implementation of the Decision, the situation is much better today. The plan of the Dubrovnik city administration is to further reduce public areas for catering facilities on January 1, 2020. As both mayors concluded, they will continue to insist on changes together and will not allow such a law to continue to reduce the quality of life of the citizens of Split and Dubrovnik. Also, in their initiative, they point out that it is necessary to identify and single out UNESCO protected areas or sites and to treat them differently, ie as they propose, to allow local self-government units to have the opportunity to set limits, ie independent introduction of order into space.

THE OPEN 2017: Spieth Holds off Kuchar to Win His Third…

first_img-12 Spieth (US); -9 Kuchar (US); -6 Li (Chn); -5 McIlroy (NI), Cabrera-Bello (Spa)  Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Final leaderboard Selected: -4 Southgate (Eng), Grace (SA), Koepka (US); -3 Casey (Eng), Stenson (Swe); -2 Wood (Eng), Poulter (Eng); Level Ramsay (Sco); +1 Westwood (Eng) Drysdale (Sco), Fleetwood (Eng), Johnston (Eng) Jordan Spieth sunday won The Open at Royal Birkdale by three shots, after an enthralling battle with Matt Kuchar.Spieth blew his three-shot overnight lead by the turn and trailed Kuchar after dropping a shot on the 13th.But he wrestled back the lead with a run of birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie to finish on 12 under and win his third major after the Masters and US Open.Spieth, 23, is the second player after Jack Nicklaus to win three of golf’s four majors before the age of 24.The world number three, who turns 24 on Thursday, is the youngest Open winner since 22-year-old Seve Ballesteros won the first of his three titles in 1979.Spieth, who either led or tied for the lead after every round, carded a one-under-par 69, with Kuchar’s 69 leaving him on nine under, while 21-year-old Li Haotong of China played the second lowest round of the tournament with a 63 to climb to third place on six under.Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy hit a three-under 67 to tie for fourth on five under, alongside Spain’s Rafael Cabrera-Bello (68).England’s world number 172 Matthew Southgate finished on four under for a tie for sixth place, along with South Africa’s Branden Grace, who carded the first 62 in a men’s major in the third round.Spieth will have the opportunity to complete the career Grand Slam at the PGA Championship in August.After the third round Spieth said he had learned from his 2016 Masters collapse, when he squandered a five-shot lead with nine holes remaining.But he made the worst possible start with three bogeys on the opening four holes and despite a birdie on the fifth, another dropped shot on the ninth meant he reached the turn level with his playing partner, who was was level par after nine.Then came the 13th and extraordinary scenes on Merseyside.Spieth’s wayward drive was 120 yards right of the fairway and went into the deep rough. After long discussions and debate with R&A rules officials, Spieth eventually took a penalty drop and played what became his third shot, more than 20 minutes after he struck his drive.His shot pulled up short of the green and a chip and a putt resulted in a bogey, but handed the lead to Kuchar, who parred the hole, for the first time in the round.Spieth refused to let his head drop and almost holed his next shot from the tee on the par-three 14th.The birdie brought him back level with Kuchar and he took the lead with an incredible 35ft putt for an eagle on the par-five 15th. Kuchar responded with a birdie, but it was advantage Spieth.A further birdie on the 16th gave him a two-shot lead and when they traded birdies on the next, it was Spieth’s to lose.Kuchar’s second shot to the last plugged into a greenside bunker and he was unable to get up and down to save par, while Spieth lagged his birdie putt and tapped in to finish with the three-shot advantage he had begun the round and get his hands on the Claret Jug.  last_img read more

Miserable night at wrong time for Manning

first_imgDenver Broncos’ Peyton Manning looks to pass against the Seattle Seahawks during the second half of the NFL Super Bowl XLVIII football game Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014, in East Rutherford, N.J. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – The talk, at least before the Denver Broncos took a team vote and decided not to show up for the game, was that Peyton Manning might call it a career and ride off into the sunset after winning his second Super Bowl ring.After as miserable a performance as you will ever see on a big stage by a future Hall of Famer, the Broncos might be excused if they just don’t invite him back.They will, of course, because Manning can still put up big numbers and win more games than the average quarterback. He actually set a Super Bowl record Sunday night by completing 34 passes, though the vast majority were meaningless short throws that the Seattle Seahawks were more than happy to give him in a 43-8 blowout.But after a second Super Bowl flop where the 37-year-old seemed to be aging by the minute, it may be that Manning is destined to forever be among a large group of quarterbacks who win the big one only once.Yes, he had plenty of help from teammates who couldn’t hold onto the ball and others who seemed to forget how to tackle. Yes, the Seahawks have a suffocating defense filled with players who like to hit and strut and then do it all over again.But it was Manning and center Manny Ramirez who set the tone with a miscommunication for the ages on the opening play from scrimmage. And it was Manning who threw two first half interceptions that gave the opportunistic Seahawks a lead they weren’t about to give up.One of the greatest quarterbacks ever? Not this night, when Manning seemed jittery and unprepared against a Seahawks defense eager to stake a claim to greatness of their own.He wasn’t even the greatest in the Broncos locker room afterward, where John Elway stood against a wall and tried to give an explanation about something he couldn’t explain.“You gotta play well in this game,” Elway said. “Gotta play well to win.”That Manning didn’t even come close was a shocker, after a season where he set NFL records with 55 touchdown passes and 5,447 yards while leading the league’s top-ranked offense. He failed to become the first quarterback to win Super Bowls with two different teams, and is 11-12 in playoff games.Tom Brady has lost a few of these, but he never completely gave them away. Joe Montana wouldn’t have even dreamed of it.Heck, it’s hard to even imagine the other Manning sibling – who owns two rings of his own – losing like this.“To finish this way is very disappointing,” Manning said. “It’s a bitter pill to swallow.”That Manning was even playing at the end of the game is testament to his stubbornness, if nothing else. His night should have ended on the previous Denver possession, when he was hit while throwing and fumbled the ball away for his third turnover of the game.Maybe he just wanted to end with one good pass, and he did. After hitting reserve back C.J. Anderson on a throw across the middle for 14 yards, he settled for handing the ball off as the final seconds ticked off.Afterward, he dressed slowly in front of his locker, putting a knot in his tie and slipping on his suit coat. Then he trudged off, head down and hands in pocket, to the interview tent where he knew the questions ahead.The play that sent the game into a tailspin was blamed on crowd noise, though Manning has played in far noisier places than a MetLife stadium that was filled with 82,529 people with divided loyalties. Manning said he was moving forward to change the cadence when Ramirez snapped the football past him and running back Knowshon Moreno fell on it for a safety that was the fastest score in Super Bowl history.“It’s not the way you want to start a game,” he said. “For whatever reason we couldn’t get anything going after that.”Someone then asked Manning if the Broncos were embarrassed by a blowout in a game they had entered as slight favorites.“It’s not embarrassing at all, I would never use that word,” he said. “The word embarrassing is an insulting word, to tell you the truth.”With that, Manning was gone, with as nifty of an escape as he had made all night. He had said he had a lot to think about during the offseason, and it was time for the thinking to begin.He will be back, unless doctors who treat his neck say otherwise.But it’s hard to imagine how next season will end any better than this one did.____Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Slow-starting Saints set to raise second BCIHL banner

first_imgFor the second time in as many years, the Selkirk College Saints men’s hockey team will proudly raise the BC Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) championship banner to the rafters of the Castlegar Community Complex on Friday night.”Winning back-to-back titles is something very unique and rewarding,” says Kim Verigin, Selkirk College’s Athletics and Recreation Coordinator.”Many people involved in competitive sport go a lifetime without winning anything significant, so for us to win two championships in a row is simply amazing. We are very grateful for the support we have received from the college and community.”The Saints captured the 2013-14 title at home last March before a packed house at their home rink in Castlegar.After powering their way through the BCIHL regular season, the Saints disposed of the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack in the semi-finals and then crushed the Trinity Western University Spartans in the league final in two straight games.Tough Start to New Campaign The Saints hope a large crowd and pre-game celebration on Friday night will fuel a team that has struggled out of the gates.Selkirk finds itself in an unfamiliar position at the bottom of the five-team league, having gone winless in their first three games.”After playing our first three contests on the road, we are all excited to come back and play in front of the best fans in the league,” says Saints’ Head Coach Alex Evin.“The support we have received the past few seasons has been incredible and we hope we can share our championship banner with our fans on Friday night as well as pick up our first victory of the season.”The Saints will face off against the much improved Eastern Washington University Eagles who have already made significant impressions in the BCIHL.The Eagles currently sit atop the standings boasting a 3-2 record with two of their wins coming against top ranked SFU and Selkirk in the season opener two weeks ago in Cheney, Washington.The Saints are recently coming off a tough road trip where they dropped a pair of games, 6-2 to Simon Fraser and 5-4 to Trinity Western.Both contests saw an injury depleted Selkirk lineup struggle with consistency. Goals for the Saints came from Logan Proulx (2), Stefan Gonzales, Darnell Dyck, Stefan Virtanen and Steven Pantazopoulos.The banner raising ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. at the Castlegar Complex. A special autograph session with all Saints players will take place immediately following the game.SAINTS NOTES:Friday’s game is the only game of the weekend for the Saints who will return home on October 25 for a rematch with Eastern Washington at the Complex… In the past two regular seasons the Saints have only registered a total of six losses. They posted a 20-3-0-1 record in 2013-14 and a 21-3-0-0 record in 2012-13.last_img read more

Dutch group invests in SA mining

first_img22 April 2010Dutch pension fund manager Algemene Pensioen Groep (APG) has committed US$250-million of equity capital to resources group Pallinghurst for investments in mining, $200-million (about R1.4-billion) of which has been earmarked for South Africa.The commitment is for up to 10 years, and will be made at the discretion of Pallinghurst Advisors.As a first investment, APG will apply for a $50-million allotment in the upcoming equity placement by platinum producer Platmin – a Pallinghurst portfolio company that is listed on the JSE, the Toronto Stock Exchange and London’s AIM alternative exchange.“We are proud to welcome the distinguished asset manager APG as co-investor in Pallinghurst,” Pallinghurst CEO Brian Gilbertson said in a statement this week. “We value APG’s confidence in our project initiatives, and indeed in South Africa.”Pallinghurst’s “steel-feed” platform is another likely core area of investment for the APG funds, as the global steel market races to secure raw material input.Sustainable development, job creationAPG senior fund manager Frank Asselbergs said that following a rigorous due diligence process, the pension fund manager decided to partner with the Pallinghurst team to broaden their exposure to the sustainable development of natural resources, and to key commodities in particular.He said APG was very impressed with the commitment of the South African government to develop the natural resources sector in a responsible way and to encourage broad-based community groups to share in its embedded wealth, while creating an attractive investment climate for institutional investors.“We trust that our commitment will not only provide attractive returns for APG and its clients, but also facilitate job creation and financial upliftment in South Africa,” Asselbergs said.Blue-chip investorsPallinghurst CEO Arne Frandsen said that with the APG commitment, the company had raised more than $1.5-billion, and had invested more than $500-million of mainly foreign funds into the South African mining industry over the past 18 months.“We will continue to focus on attractive, sustainable and socially responsible investments, which will not only provide our investors with superior returns but also benefit all our stakeholders,” he said.The APG investment represents the second recent commitment by a long-term blue-chip foreign investor into Pallinghurst and Platmin, following the $100-million committed by the Singapore sovereign wealth fund Temasek in March 2010.In a separate statement Temasek, this week announced it would apply for an additional $50-million allotment in the upcoming equity placement by Platmin, increasing its commitment to Platmin to $150-million.“This commitment, taken together with that made last month by Temasek, gives Pallinghurst additional financial strength in the evolving resource sector,” Gilbertson said.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
