As of today, the new Minister of Tourism and Sports is Dr. sc. Nikolina Brnjac. Croatia has at its disposal a number of experienced experts who will surely want to help, but you just need to ask them. Today more than ever, we need less policy, and more synergies and a focus on market development. Ultimately, form is the least important, what we need is the efficiency and productivity of the entire country, including the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the CNTB. And it’s all down to people and politics. University textbooks: “The role and importance of intermodal transport in the freight transport market”; UNIZG, Zagreb, May 17, 5″Analysis of the possibility of developing the Croatian Railways system with reference to intermodality”; Croatian Chamber of Commerce, April 16, 2013″Supply chain risks”; LOMI, Krapina 2014″The role of human capital in the management of supply chains or logistics systems”; SCO Logistics, LOGIN 07, 2014. As always, I personally believe that everyone has the right to a chance, including the new Minister of Tourism and Sports, and time will show how the Ministry of Tourism and Sports will function from now on.

Interestingly, so far the new Minister of Tourism and Sports, at least according to official data, has no experience in the tourism sector, which has provoked negative reactions from the tourism profession. So the new minister faces a great challenge to prove herself and earn the trust of the profession. Surrounding yourself with experienced and professional people, especially those from the real sector, is a winning combination for every minister, including a new minister. We need a leader and a manager who will know how to arrange all the pieces of our tourist mosaic. Especially in the coming period, when the reform of the entire tourism sector and a new modern tourism paradigm for the 21st century are expected.

Tweet Share Photo credit: cafepress.comNearly everyone has been burned at some point in life, either by a stove, a curling iron, a too-hot latte… or an object of our affection. Turns out, both kinds of burn are biologically similar. According to science. (You know, actual science.)A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science reports that, according to CNN, “the same brain networks that are activated when you’re burned by hot coffee also light up when you think about a lover who has spurned you.” The study was conducted using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) on 40 people subjected to a heat source on their left arm akin to a scalding cup of coffee with no sleeve on it, and also separately given a photo of a lost love and prompted to talk about their memories of specific experiences with their exes. The imaging scans showed strikingly similar activity in the same brain networks across both stimuli — physical and emotional.So, what does it all mean? Basically, the pain of a breakup is real. And just like you’d treat a skin burn to help it heal and leave as slight a scar as possible, you can essentially do the same for the kind of burn that’s closer to the heart. As a physical burn starts to heal, you don’t keep messing with it and subjecting it to all sorts of things that just make it worse, right? Of course not. You treat it and dress it and leave it alone to let it run its course. So when you’ve just been emotionally hurt, why keep pressing the bruise, tearing away the scab and preventing yourself from getting better?The takeaway: when dealing with a breakup, it’s possible to expedite your recovery by addressing it head-on instead of exacerbating it with repeated exposure to the root of your pain. So, no more drunk texting/dialing/emailing/facebook stalking. No more pining away for the ex instead of focusing on more positive things. Pain is inevitable after a breakup. But how you choose to handle it is up to you, and as with physical recovery from a burn, the more you respect the process of getting better and focus on helping the pain go away, the faster it will.by PinkKisses.com 53 Views no discussions Sharing is caring!

Ghana is expected be reinstated as a member of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) after the national association received a donation of 10,000 US dollars from the CEO of McDan Shipping, Danny McKorley to settle arrears with the international body.Ghana was slapped with a ban by the ITF earlier this year after accruing three years of unpaid affiliation fees with the international body. Ghana was given a grace period which was stretched to this year.During the grace period youngster Isaac Nortey took part in the world junior championship in Switzerland while the junior national team also participated and excelled in an ITF West Central African tournament in Lome, Togo. The ban prevented Ghana from partcipating in any ITF-sanctioned activity after it was activated.This included administratve courses, tournaments and scholarship programmes for talented players.At a brief presentation ceremony at the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Mr McKorley, who is a tennis enthusiast said “the decision to support the sport is inspired by my passion for the sport and I wanted to extend this gesture to support the national association to restore the image of the nation. There are many undiscovered tennis talents in the country which can be unearthed and when they are supported they can go places.” Mr McKorley also used the opportunity to announce his outfit’s plan to build an ultra-modern tennis arena in Accra as well as introduce the McDan Open tournament on the local tennis calendar. “Tennis is a big sport all over the world and its rather sad that Ghana has to experience this problem. At my company we are committed to fulfilling our social responsibility and also want to help the sport to develop,” Mr McKorley told Joy Sports. Youth and Sports Minister Elvis Afriyie Ankrah who received the cheque on behalf of the GTA encouraged more corporate support for sports to enable non-football disciplines grow. Ghana tennis has seen major challenges over the last few years most of which are financial. Due to the lack of sponsorship, the Ghana Tennis Association (GTA) has had major challenges organising tournaments. This is also compounded with the nation’s inability to qualify from Euro-Africa Zone Three of the Davis Cup. The junior national teams have remained Ghana’s brightest spot in tennis with consistent medal-winning performances at major tournaments.
NBA Finals 2019: 3 reasons why the Warriors lost to the Raptors “I don’t know yet what we’re going to do,” Lacob told Yahoo Sports. “I’ve said for a long time I want Klay to be a Warrior for life, and so this doesn’t change anything as far as I’m concerned.”Although Thompson’s first choice is to re-sign with the Warriors, who drafted him in 2011, he would consider other teams if obstacles come up, Yahoo’s sources said. Related News “I’m not going to say anything because the free-agency period isn’t here yet,” Lacob said. “You know I have the utmost regard for Klay’s talent and for him as a person. I’m pretty sure we’ll talk this summer, and he’ll hopefully be a Warrior for life.”The free-agent negotiating period begins June 30.Thompson’s future could be intertwined with that of Kevin Durant, also a pending free agent who suffered a devastating injury in the NBA Finals. He ruptured his right Achilles in Game 5 and is expected to miss the entire 2019-20 season. Later Friday, though, Thompson’s father Mychal told the San Francisco Chronicle there’s “no question” his son will stay with Golden State. Just spoke with Klay Thompson’s father, Mychal, who said there’s “no question” Klay will re-sign with the Warriors. Golden State is expected to still offer him a full five-year maximum deal.— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) June 14, 2019Game 6 offered just a glimpse of what he can bring on the court: Before Thompson went down awkwardly after going up for a dunk, he was the best player on the floor, scoring a game-high 30 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field, 4-of-6 from 3-point range, and 10-of-10 from the free-throw line while grabbing five rebounds in 32 minutes.In eight seasons with Golden State, Thompson has averaged 19.5 points per game.Just as important, however, he emerged as a vocal leader during the 2019 NBA Finals, which the two-time defending champion Warriors lost to the Raptors. Re-signing five-time All-Star guard Klay Thompson remains a priority for the Warriors, team owner Joe Lacob told Yahoo Sports in the wake of the torn left ACL the star suffered Thursday in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.Thompson, who according to the report is expected to miss up to 10 months because of the injury, was seeking a max contract this summer in free agency. The injury might complicate things this offseason, but Lacob says he remains intent on bringing back Thompson, 29. Stephen Curry hails injured Klay Thompson as Warriors confirm torn ACL

Fresh off a series win against USC last weekend and a comeback draw against Pepperdine on Tuesday, the Dirtbags face a tougher challenge this weekend when they host No. 4 Texas at Blair Field. Texas won national titles in 2002 and 2005 under former Cal State Fullerton coach Augie Garrido and went 41-21 in 2006, including a pair of wins in a three-game series against the Dirtbags in Austin. They come into the 2007 season the Big 12 Conference favorite and as usual a contender to reach Omaha and the College World Series. Texas is 2-2 this season, having lost two of three to the University of San Diego last weekend. They are a sophomore-laden team that features outfielders Jordan Danks (.319 in 2006) and Kyle Russell (10 home runs) and a deep pitching staff. Texas will throw freshman left-hander James Russell (0-1, 2.57) tonight at 6:30 p.m., Kyle Walker (0-0, 9.00) Saturday at 2 p.m. and senior Randy Boone (0-1, 4.26) Sunday at 1 p.m. Tuesday, the Dirtbags fell behind Pepperdine 7-0 in Malibu but used a three-run home run by Danny Espinosa to earn a 7-7 tie in a game that was suspended due to darkness in the ninth inning. The game will be finished April 10 when Pepperdine visits Blair. The Dirtbags hit the road to face another tough Texas team, No. 1-ranked Rice, next weekend. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
