Slovenia generated 20 million euros in tourist spending through tourist vouchers

first_imgVaučeri su svakako odlična potez, jer se direktno stvara domaća potrošnja te time i pokreće ekonomija. Ono što je za kraj važno istaknuti, kako su turističke bonove pratila odlična i intezivna kampanja “Now is the time. My Slovenia“. Više o kampanji saznajte u prilogu. In the first month of using tourist vouchers, from June 19 to July 19, slightly less than 150.000 vouchers worth a total of 20,5m euros were used, according to the Slovenian government. All adult citizens of Slovenia received tourist vouchers in the amount of 200 euros, children in the amount of 50 euros, which can be used by the end of the year at the latest. Which means that a family of four has tourist vouchers in the equivalent of 500 euros. Vouchers can be used for bed or bed and breakfast, and the state pays the money to the account of the accommodation facility within eight days. So far, 44 percent of vouchers have been used for hotel accommodation, 20 percent for apartments and 10 percent for campsites. Most vouchers are used for accommodation for up to seven days, and most are used for two to four nights.Also, this year there is an increased interest in lesser-known tourist destinations in Slovenia, which the Slovenian government considers to be the greatest and invaluable added value of tourist vouchers. Generated tourist spending of as much as 20 million euros In the first month of use, 150.000 vouchers were used, and an additional 25.000 vouchers were reserved. This move by the Slovenian government is direct generated 20 million euros in tourist spending, i to u domaćem turizmu. U spomenuti iznos nije uračunata dodatna turistička potrošnja, jer se bonovi mogu iskoristiti samo za noćenje. Prema analizama očekuje se kako će uz taj oblik domaće turističke potrošnje, uz 345 milijuna bonova koje poklanja država, građani potrošiti dodatnih 172 milijuna eura za ugostiteljske i druge usluge te tako imati pozitivan učinak na šire gospodarstvo. Znamo kako turizam horizontal i vertikalno veže razne druge industrije. Osobno smatram kako će dodatna potrošnja građana biti puno veća.center_img Naime, kako bi potaknula lokalnu ekonomiju i potrošnju, Slovenija je odlučila uvesti vaučere za domaće turiste. Takozvani turistički bonovi dio su novog paketa pomoći Vlade kao reakcija na ekonomsku krizu izazvanu epidemijom koronavirusa. The most used and reserved vouchers are in Portorož, Izola, Moravske toplice, Kranjska Gora and Podčetrtek, and the most popular accommodation hotels are the hotels Histrion in Bernardin, Sotelia in Podčetrtek and Delfin in Izola. “NOW IS THE TIME. MY SLOVENIA ”OR HOW SLOVENIA WORKS ON ACTIVATING A DOMESTIC GUEST Upotreba vaučera povećava se iz dana u dan, a u prosjeku se dnevni iznos kreće od 5 do 11 tisuća otkupljenih vaučera – ističu iz slovenske vlade te dodaju kako se vaučeri najviše koristi nedjeljom.last_img read more

State agencies have developed the following 24 tips for a successful winter season:For Your HealthTo stay healthy this winter:Get a flu shot.Stay warm. Exposure to cold temperatures, whether indoors or outdoors, can cause serious or life-threatening health problems such as frostbite and hypothermia.Check on infants and older Pennsylvanians frequently, as they are at greater risk of developing serious cold-related health problems.If you are going outdoors, be sure to cover all exposed skin with hats, scarves, gloves, etc.Prevent snow removal injuries, and if you or your loved ones have chest pain, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of a heart attack while shoveling snow, call 911 immediately.When possible, push snow instead of lifting it. If you must lift, bend your legs and not your back. Also avoid twisting motions that can stress your back.Follow all safety instructions when using a snow blower.Never use an electric generator, camp stove, or similar device indoors, near windows, or vents since they produce carbon monoxide – an odorless, colorless gas that builds up in closed spaces and is deadly.On the RoadWhen traveling in winter weather:Get the most current and relevant Pennsylvania traffic information on your smart phone by downloading the 511PA mobile app here.Slow down gradually and drive at a speed that suits the conditions.Turn on your headlights.Stay in your lane.Increase your following distance.Stay alert, keep looking as far ahead as possible and be patient.Reduce in-car distractions since your full attention is required.Use defroster and wipers.Keep windows and mirrors free of snow and ice.During whiteouts, come to a complete stop only when you can safely get as far off the road as possible or when there is a safe area to do so.Do not stop in the flow of traffic since this could create a chain-reaction collision.Do not pass a vehicle moving slowly or speed up to get away from a vehicle that is following too closely.Always buckle up and never drink and drive.In Case of EmergencyTo be prepared for an emergency you should:Always keep at least three days’ worth of water and non-perishable food in your home for your family, including pets. Keep in mind any special dietary needs, such as infant formula or baby food.Double-check your family’s emergency supply kit before winter approaches and add the following supplies in preparation for winter weather: rock salt to melt ice on walkways, sand to improve traction, snow shovels and other snow removal equipment, portable or hand-cranked cellphone charger, battery-operated or hand-crank lights and radios in the event power goes out, and adequate clothing and blankets to keep you and your family warm.Make an emergency plan for your family, and review it with all family members.

Governor Wolf Announces $10 Million Budget Proposal to Increase Overdose Antidote Access for First Responders, Law Enforcement

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter January 31, 2017 Governor Wolf Announces $10 Million Budget Proposal to Increase Overdose Antidote Access for First Responders, Law Enforcementcenter_img Budget News,  Press Release,  Public Safety,  Results,  Substance Use Disorder Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced that his proposed 2017-2018 budget will include $10 million to provide live-saving Naloxone to first responders and law enforcement across the state. The money will be available through the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.“Expanding access to Naloxone is crucial in continuing our fight against the opioid epidemic,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “We cannot help our family members, friends, neighbors, and fellow citizens get the treatment they need if they die from an overdose of prescription opioids or heroin. Since November of 2014, more than 2,320 opioid overdoses have been reversed by first responders across Pennsylvania. As this terrible disease continues to devastate our families and communities, we must ensure the widespread access of Naloxone.”Expanding access to naloxone goes hand-in-hand with the Wolf administration’s “warm-handoff” policy. A warm-handoff is a process in which a person who is identified as having a substance use disorder and/or overdose survivor is transferred from a hospital emergency room or other healthcare provider to a drug treatment provider. Together, Naloxone and the warm-handoff are saving lives across Pennsylvania, and are helping to get those suffering from substance use disorders into treatment, where they can begin their recovery.“Expanding access to naloxone, a life-saving medication, is critical to giving Pennsylvanians a chance to get the treatment they need,’’ said Attorney General Josh Shapiro. “It’s part of the comprehensive plan we need to fight the heroin and opioid epidemic that is harming so many Pennsylvanians. We need to be merciless with drug dealers, understand addiction is a disease, not a crime, and work with the medical and pharmaceutical communities to help curb the abuse of opioids that is fueling this epidemic.”“Cops become cops because they want to protect and serve their communities. I can’t think of any greater service than saving someone’s life,” said Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency Chairman Charles Ramsey. “It is our duty as government officials to ensure that law enforcement has the tools they need to do their job and that is what naloxone is.”“The opioid crisis is a public health emergency from which no community is immune. Tackling this challenge involves understanding opioid addiction as a chronic disease that requires prevention, intervention and treatment,” said Dr. Valerie Arkoosh, Chair of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners. “At the same time, you can’t get into treatment for your addiction if you die on the streets or in your home as a result of an overdose. That is why making Naloxone available to law enforcement, EMS, hospital workers, pharmacies, schools, and individuals at risk of an overdose is integral to any effective strategy to combat this epidemic.”Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolflast_img read more

The church is loudly silent in Dominica-Claude Weekes

first_img Share Share Tweet Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector Claude Weekes.Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Claude Weekes has called on the church to step up its campaign against crime and violence in Dominica.Weekes who was addressing a village council organised public meeting in Pichelin last night, said the church needs to speak out against criminality.“We must open our mouth and break the culture of silence. Our churches are silent. It is loudly silent in Dominica. Sometimes I believe they have lost their role, they have lost focus, they must get out of the buildings and put themselves on the roads to speak against criminality,” he told the audience.According to Weekes, the Roseau Valley is becoming an area of concern for the police.“Drug dealing brings crime and violence to otherwise peaceful communities. There is a phenomenon developing in the valley with the young boys’ tortured by drugs and that’s a fact because of the magnitude of reports that’s coming in,” he said.Dominica Vibes News 34 Views   no discussionscenter_img Sharing is caring!

Rodgers backs Mignolet to come good

first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists he has not lost faith in goalkeeper Simon Mignolet despite dropping the Belgium international. The 26-year-old was told to expect an “indefinite” period on the sidelines after being left out of the team to face Manchester United on December 14 following much criticism of his form this season. While Rodgers has not told the Belgian when he can expect a recall, he expects him to return a better goalkeeper when he does, having spent plenty of time analysing his performances. “Simon’s response has been fantastic,” said Rodgers, who admitted he had to take Mignolet out of the spotlight to allow him a cooling off period to reassess his game. “People would think coming out of the team would have a negative effect but he has been outstanding and his training has been good and we’re analysing where he can improve. “That time coming out of the team sometimes gives you that reflective period that you don’t have when you’re in the thick of it and it can benefit you. “I’ve seen a real positive reaction from him. John (Achterberg), who’s our excellent goalkeeping coach, and myself sit down with him, study his game and look at the areas we feel the improvements can be made. “Hopefully when he returns he’ll have gained from that time out and becomes a better keeper for it. “We’ve seen it in the past with other keepers at other clubs – sometimes that little period out can really help. I’m confident that’ll be the case with Simon. “I haven’t lost any belief in him – he’s still an outstanding goalkeeper. “I’m sure when the time comes for him to come back in, he’ll be a better goalkeeper for it.” Rodgers, however, has made no decision on when that day will come. “I’ll make my mind up on that at the right time,” Rodgers added. “At this moment in time, Simon is just working hard to get back into the team. “It gives him the chance to reflect and also allow him to refocus on his game. Players need that at times.” Brad Jones has stood in for the last three matches and although he has conceded six goals already his appearance has coincided with an upturn in performances after Rodgers switched to a 3-4-3 formation. The Australian’s distribution is superior to Mignolet’s and while his all-round game may not be any better his manager has been pleased with his contribution. Jones is out of contract in the summer and spoke this week about wanting to earn a new deal, but Rodgers just wants him to concentrate on his matches, with Burnley next up on Boxing Day. “Over his career here he has been number three, number two goalkeeper and when called upon has come in and done very well,” said the Reds boss. “He is a very loyal goalkeeper, he is an important member of our squad. “He has done well in the games that he has played in. He is consistent right the way through. “The reality is footballers play football for the game and he is a wonderful professional. “He didn’t play a lot last season but he still does his work with maximum intensity every day. “They are a close-knit group, the goalkeepers, and they have worked and supported each other.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Quarter-finalists for Corona Invitational Football decided

first_imgIT was a tense night of football action as the Corona Invitational Football tournament, organised by the Petra Organisation concluded its round-robin segment.In the first of the games, Santos were in no playful mood as they disposed of East Veldt FC 8-0.Kacy John led the line with half of the side’s goals and all in the second half, commencing in the 51st then 62nd, 78th and 88th.Valuable support came from William Europe with goals in the 24th and 63rd while Sherwin Skeete and Lionel Holder chipped in with one each in the 26th and 90th respectively.In the second game of the night, GFC dropped the hammer on Beacons FC with a brace from Benjamin Opera in the 1st and 66th.Alberto Da Santa and Dwayne Robeiro also scored one each in the 22nd and 53rd..Quasan Mcaulay was the man on target in the 34th for the Beacons who bowed out of the competition.Game three was a battle royal and probably one of the best to end the night and the round, with a potential final featuring Western Tigers and Police.In the end, it was the Tigers who roared loudest but not before having their fair share of issues. Dwayne McLennon’s 20th minute strike opened the scoring for the Tigers but Antonio Wallace responded right on the brink of the half to ensure that the half ended level.It took a Phillip Rowley intervention in the 71st minute to give Western Tigers the eventual lead once more which held to the finishIn Friday’s quarter-finals, Northern Rangers will play Camptown from 19:00hrs while the Western Tigers will face longtime rivals Pele FC.last_img read more

first_imgLINCOLN, New Zealand (CMC) – West Indies warmed up for the defence of their ICC Under-19 World Cup title by brushing aside minnows Papua New Guinea by eight wickets, in their first official warm-up match here yesterday.The reigning World champions restricted Papua New Guinea to 105 all out in the 42nd over before racing to their target in the 23rd, to make a winning start to their campaign.Bhaskar Yadram slammed an unbeaten 37 from 23 deliveries while opener Keagan Simmons and (23) and captain Emmanuel Stewart (21) produced a patient innings in support.Earlier choosing to bat first at Lincoln Green, Papua New Guinea were undermined by left-arm spinners Jeavor Royal (2-4) and Ashmead Nedd (2-10), along with off-spinner Alick Athanaze (2-15).Opener Igo Mahuru top-scored with 22 while Ovia Sam chipped in with 21, combining in the best stand of the innings by adding 28 for the third wicket.Royal claimed Mahuru and Athanaze accounted for Sam as Papua New Guinea slipped to 70 for eight in the 32nd over – a position from which they never recovered.In their run chase, West Indies Under-19s suffered an early setback when the free-scoring Kimani Melius was lbw to left-arm swing bowler James Tau off the fifth ball of the innings, without scoring.However, Simmons struck two fours in a 43-ball knock and Stewart, three boundaries in a 53-ball innings, rebuilding the innings patiently in a 52-run, second-wicket stand.When Stewart was stumped off off-spinner Boge Arua in the 16th over, Yadram arrived to dominate the remainder of the innings in two small but handy partnerships.He slammed five fours and two sixes, driving stands of 24 for the third wicket with Simmons and 29 for the fourth wicket with Cephas Cooper, who finished 11 not out.West Indies Under-19s take on Zimbabwe Under-19s in their second official warm-up tomorrow at the same venue here, before opening their Group A preliminary campaign with a tough clash with hosts New Zealand Under-19 in Mount Maunganui on January 13.last_img read more
