King Tomislav, arboretum near the Elementary School Čazma, Medjama, promenade on the embankment and Vustje.Natural pools an opportunity for continental tourismIt is interesting how one of the first, if not the first, natural or biological pool will be built as part of the project. By the way, these are benzenes without the need for chlorine and any chemicals, and around the beach there is a special zone where aquatic vegetation is planted, which serves as a mini ecosystem that thus maintains the cleanliness of the pool.Natural pools should be something normal in the continental area at least when we talk about continental tourism, something that is logical, natural and efficient and fits into the ambience and the whole experience. Also, as it is an artificial pool, the possibilities of landscaping are endless, ie with or without a waterfall, smaller or larger, etc.… so natural pools can fit into any space.This is certainly a great opportunity for continental and rural tourism, and when the Ministry can co-finance swimming pools on the Adriatic, maybe they could co-finance natural swimming pools for continental tourism as well.Take a look at all the possibilities of natural pools in the gallery on Pinterest – Pinterest Natural Pools , or do a little research on the Internet.

As part of the project, the arrangement of the Multifunctional Center is included, ie the newly renovated building on the square will get a new purpose.The implementation of the project will directly affect employment: 12 people – full-time employees and 40 seasonal employees, but most importantly it will generate new value and positively change the vision of the city. “The creation of tourist facilities will increase the number of visitors, which will also contribute to the increase in the number of new employees in existing and new tourist and catering companies. The introduction of new technologies will contribute to the reduction of energy consumption and environmental protection. The project will change the vision of the City of Čazma and contribute to achieving the goal – the development of the City of Green Tourism, which will affect the development of continental tourism and increase the number of visitors in underdeveloped areas”Points out Mayor Dinko Pirak.last_img read more

Give Niskayuna a chance at bipartisanship

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionAs I noticed from previous letters to the editor, there are a number of Niskayuna residents who question the ability of a Democratic board and a Republican supervisor to govern in a responsible way. I, too, was skeptical. I sent an email to Denise Murphy McGraw outlining my concerns. She immediately replied saying, “My top priority is always to show the people of Niskayuna I work with their best interests at heart. I will never waver from that mission.”In this era of negativism and instant judgment, I suggest that we give them time to show us that in Niskayuna, nonpartisan leadership is possible, despite evidence to the contrary from the state and federal governments.Lois MillsNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

South Pacific cyclone and coronavirus create ‘perfect storm’ of worry

first_imgTopics : The storm is now headed toward Tonga and expected to land there on Thursday or Friday, emergency officials said.The cyclone forced Vanuatu, which has yet to report a case of the COVID-19 infection, to suspend social distancing rules intended to combat the virus, Red Cross officials said.The island state’s leaders also are rethinking new border restrictions imposed to head off a virus outbreak, they said.“It’s an incredibly challenging time right across the globe, and it’s hard to imagine a worse time for a mega-storm like this to hit,” Luke Ebbs, Vanuatu director for charity Save the Children, said in a statement. Josephine Latu-Sanft, a Tongan-born communications director for The Commonwealth – whose members include more than 20 small island states – said the storm had thrown the islands’ pandemic preparations into question, and left nations that have few resources struggling to deal with two crises at once.Fiji, for instance, has about 15 cases of COVID-19 and no deaths yet, but will find it hard to maintain a lockdown to tame the disease’s spread while dealing with the storm’s aftermath, she said.In many islands in the South Pacific, “that’s where the worry is”, she added.”If they have to lift that [lockdown] to put everybody in a church or evacuate a rural area, that’s a problem.”Tonga has just “a handful” of intensive care beds for a population of 100,000, to treat both storm injuries and potential cases of the novel coronavirus, Latu-Sanft said.Many people also fear that visitors bringing in storm aid or other supplies from abroad could unwittingly introduce the virus in places where it has yet to take hold.Multiple disasters For small islands, working to prevent a COVID-19 crisis “doesn’t mean all the other issues you’re dealing with go away”, Latu-Sanft told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.Patricia Scotland, secretary-general of The Commonwealth and a native of the Caribbean island of Dominica, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in 2017, said lessons learned in the South Pacific may soon have wider implications.Both the Atlantic hurricane season and South Asia monsoon, for example, begin in June, and could bring flooding and other threats even as countries are likely to be still grappling with COVID-19.”If we’re not careful we may have the perfect storm,” Scotland warned in a telephone interview.Economic shutdowns associated with efforts to control the virus also will make it harder for many people to cope with potential climate-related disasters at the same time.Communities that rely on fishing, for instance, can no longer sell to restaurants or broader markets, and tourism is on hold as travel bans are put in place.”If no one’s flying and there’s no tourism and no one is buying your fish, you’re really looking at an economic disaster as well,” Scotland said.Maarten van Aalst, director of the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, said aid agencies and climate change experts have long been concerned about more countries and communities facing multiple crises – from health emergencies to conflict outbreaks or weather disasters – all at once.The current pandemic is now expanding that risk to many parts of the world beyond the poorest and most conflict-affected countries, he said.”Are we going to see a lot more of this? Absolutely,” he added. center_img As deadly Cyclone Harold churns through the South Pacific, small island nations in its path are struggling to balance responses to the disaster with maintaining efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, officials warned Wednesday.Cyclone Harold ripped through Vanuatu and Fiji as a deadly top-strength storm this week, causing injuries and damage to property, and severing communications.Before that, it left 27 people missing and presumed dead in the Solomon Islands after they were swept off a ferry in rough seas.last_img read more
