The development of tourism, in addition to numerous benefits, necessarily brings with it certain consequences such as a significantly increased volume of waste left by tourists to hosts, increased consumption of water, detergents, spatial usurpation and a number of other undesirable consequences. Tourism in Croatia generates almost 20 percent of GDP and in this respect represents a significant economic branch. With higher sales of domestic food in tourism, furniture and other inputs, tourism would generate the development of certain industries that certainly have room for growth. When we talk about tourism in protected areas, we must expect strong growth with great caution. With its 8 national parks and 11 nature parks, Croatia is an “oasis” of Europe. Plitvice Lakes National Park is, along with Dubrovnik, the strongest Croatian brand. However, there are other national parks such as NP Krka, NP Brijuni and NP Mljet, which indicate the number of visitors from year to year that Croatia, except for the beautiful sea and beaches, is widely recognized for its protected areas. Continental parks each year show a growing interest in visiting, both locals and world visitors. After the introduction, a presentation on the topic of protection of natural areas through responsible tourism development is planned, which will be held by Izidora Marković Vukadin from the Institute of Tourism. Such points are the basis for the development of continental tourism, and since for some Parks this is just the beginning, it is the right time to point out the necessary model of sustainable tourism development that includes environmental care, cooperation with local producers and promotion of natural and cultural heritage. Plitvice Lakes National Park on Tuesday, May 14.05.2019, XNUMX. at the Hotel Jezero, organizes the Conference “Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas of the Republic of Croatia”, which will host experts in the field of sustainable tourism. Two panel discussions will follow the conference. Gari Cappelli, Tomislav Ćorić, Tomislav Kovačević and Assistant Minister of Culture Davor Trupković will take part in the first panel discussion entitled “Framework for the Development of Sustainable Tourism”. The second panel discussion “Sustainable tourism in practice” will be attended by Assistant Minister of Environment and Energy Igor Kreitmeyer, Dean of the Faculty of Management in Tourism and Hospitality from Opatija Dora Smolčić Jurdana, FEEL IQM owner Đurđica Šimičić and Deana Stipanović, Corporate Affairs Director Valamar Rilamar dd Applications for the conference are still open for a short time via email.
Dusty Baker has one of the best records as a big league manager. However, his history has been that he brings a team into contention but just can’t take them all the way. I haven’t heard much grumbling yet to change managers. If the Reds finish as low as third this year, you begin to wonder if Dusty has met his Waterloo in Cincinnati. It would be a shame, because for the most part, he has done a great job keeping the Reds among the elite in baseball He did the same in Chicago, and except for the infamous left field fan interference, he would have had the Cubs in the World Series. Last year at Cincinnati he had the 2-0 lead against the Giants and the team totally collapsed at home. The Giants went on to win the World Series. Even though Cincinnati management seems to be less impulsive than some other organizations, you wonder if Dusty can survive if the Reds do not make the World Series. No one seems to care, but the Reds have had a lot of injuries this year. They were picked to win big in the National League, and unless they get very hot the last six weeks, the wolves may start to howl. We will know in the next few weeks. If they win big and make the playoffs, the month of July will be forgotten quickly.
Revenge, redemption, rematch — Syracuse had heard it all since last Monday when its NCAA tournament draw was announced. On the forefront, the eighth-seeded Orange would open tournament play against Nebraska, a major-conference opponent and a 20-game winner.But the way the Greensboro region aligned, a second-round matchup against No. 1 seed South Carolina couldn’t be ignored. Just four months earlier, the Orange fell to the then-top-ranked Gamecocks by four points after leading by 10 with seven minutes to go.Eventually, SU did earn the rematch, but on Sunday it squandered its chance at rebuttal. The Orange (22-10, 11-5 Atlantic Coast) was obliterated by the Gamecocks (32-2, 15-1 Southeastern), 97-68, at Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina. The defeat marks the second consecutive year SU’s season in the second round of the NCAA tournament.“Early on we really wanted to get out and pressure, but we got down six fouls to one and there was nowhere to go from there,” Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “When one of your best players (Briana Day) is out of the game against one of the top interior teams in the country, you’re going to struggle.”South Carolina began to pull its starters with seven minutes to go, and at one point led by as many as 31. The Gamecocks’ 97 points set the NCAA tournament single-game record for most points.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU point guard Alexis Peterson scored 23 points for the Orange, which ties Kayla Alexander (2010-13) for the most points scored by an SU player in an NCAA tournament game. But the Orange had just three players in double digits compared to six South Carolina players scoring 12 points or more.Peterson scored five early points for the Orange, but the Gamecocks went on a 9-2 run on the shoulders of Asia Dozier, who the Orange left wide open before she made her first three 3-point attempts. Day recorded two quick fouls, and was replaced by Bria Day just 3:50 in.After an initial wave of shooting from the outside, the Gamecocks pounded the paint with 6-foot-4 center Alaina Coates and 6-foot forward Aleighsa Welch. The two combined for 20 first-half points as USC took a 53-25 lead into the break — a stretch during which five SU players had committed two or more fouls.Hillsman said it was difficult for his team to play pressure defense when it kept committing fouls, and was forced to sit back unconventionally in its 2-3 zone.“It was really tough to play that way,” Hillsman said. “It’s not what we do.”The second half was just a formality, even though at one point the Orange cut its deficit to 20.Since an SU-USC matchup became a possibility last Monday, it’s been talked about ad nauseam. It was the third question asked to Cornelia Fondren during her post-selection show media availability, the fourth question asked to Peterson, and Briana Day talked about it before she was even asked.SU players answered questions with the typical “taking one game at a time” answer, but then commented on South Carolina anyway.But Coates, speaking to reporters, also called it a redemption game — a chance to prove USC was more than four points better than Syracuse.The Gamecocks proved that, and more.“Revenge game, I never thought it was like that,” Hillsman said. “I just thought South Carolina was a very good basketball team we’d already played. And they won the game.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 22, 2015 at 9:32 pm Contact Josh: email@example.com
