The study of the bearing capacities of the Split-Dalmatia County has begun

first_imgBased on a public tender announced in June this year, the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board signed a contract and ordered scientific expert material from the Institute for Tourism, which will answer questions about what is enough in the county’s tourism and infrastructure, where they are in the red and how much space there is. for growth.The aim of the study is to define the total load accommodation capacity for each of the six clusters in the county, according to the Institute for Tourism, which will calculate the carrying capacity of the Split Riviera and especially the city of Split, Makarska Riviera, Dalmatian Zagora and the islands of Brac, Hvar and Vis.Based on the analysis of current accommodation capacities, possibilities of reception and arrangement of beaches, traffic and communal infrastructure and natural and cultural resources, it will be found out how many nights and arrivals of tourists can be in the county during the year, especially in the “peak” season in July and August. , without endangering the sustainable development and quality of life of the local community. “It is also necessary to determine the maximum number of accommodation capacities in certain parts of the county with regard to its spatial specifics. We expect the Study to say for each of the tourist clusters of our county what are the tourist figures that this area can withstand, without compromising the balance in the supply of electricity, water and energy and not spatially endangering the area with excessive construction and significantly disrupting quality of life. local population.These are logical questions after years of great growth in popularity and tourist arrivals in our county. All this will be the basis for the work of destination management that will manage the development of tourism in the county. ” points out Joško Stella, director of the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist BoardThe study of the carrying capacity of tourism in the Split-Dalmatia County, prepared by scientists from the Institute of Tourism in Zagreb, should be completed by the spring of 2018. This is the only such example, at least known to me in Croatia, that one tourist destination started by making a study. The preparation of the study should have been the basis for development, not first to build accommodation capacities, and then to do the study. But again, better than ever, there are still things that can be corrected and directed to the right path of sustainable and strategic development.All the problems that are present in the tourism sector are the result of the elements and not strategic development. This is great news for our tourism, especially the Split-Dalmatia County, and I sincerely hope that other tourist destinations will follow this positive example because the strategic development of a tourist destination is the only right path for long-term tourism development.Record tourist results in Split-Dalmatia County According to its results and excellent tourist traffic in August, the Split-Dalmatia County remained at the very top of the country’s tourist regions. Thus, in August alone, based on eVisitor data, 892.328 guests visited the Split-Dalmatia County, realizing 5.969.680 tourist nights, which is six percent more in arrivals and seven percent more in nights than last year, the SDŽ Tourist Board points out.The main part of the tourist year and the first eight months of Central Dalmatia ends with an impressive number of 2.791.556 arrivals, which is 13 percent more than last year and 15,7 million overnight stays. The tourist star of the season is the city of Split, which is still at the top of the list of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, where there were 2.031.003 overnight stays in the first eight months. Makarska had 1.284.076 overnight stays, which is 13 percent more than last year, which placed the two cities among Croatia’s Top 20 tourist destinations. “All the announcements say that the excellent visit will continue during October, so Central Dalmatia is becoming a prime example of the extension of the tourist season in all parts of the county.Stella points out.Split Airport also recorded excellent results, with 2.123.209 passengers so far, which is 24 percent more than last year and thus became the first airport in terms of traffic in Croatia. Most overnight stays in the first eight months were made by guests from Poland, the Czech Republic, Germany and Scandinavia.last_img read more

Boeheim gives injury updates, says ‘nothing’s changed’ with Coleman

first_img Published on October 17, 2014 at 6:50 pm Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesse Comments Jim Boeheim didn’t have to give a lengthy injury report at basketball media day on Friday afternoon, but his updates did include DaJuan Coleman and Chinonso Obokoh, two parts of a thinning Syracuse front court.Coleman is still working back from a knee injury that kept him out of most of last season, and Obokoh has missed 10 days with what Syracuse assistant coach Mike Hopkins confirmed as a thigh injury.“Nothing’s changed. Dajuan has worked every day for eight months. He’s made progress,” Boeheim said of Coleman. “He’s able to shoot. He’s able to run on the treadmill. He’s very limited. We have no real timetable right now. We’re hopeful that he’ll do something in November. Exactly what that will be, we really don’t know.”With Coleman a question mark for the start of the season and Obokoh — who practiced Thursday — working back, freshman forward Chris McCullough has worked at center on both offense and defense to complement senior Rakeem Christmas, who has started at center in the last two seasons. McCullough said that it hasn’t been too difficult to learn both positions, and Boeheim added that the forward and center spots are interchangeable on offense and just “three feet apart” in the 2-3 zone.Boeheim also said that Obokoh is a player that could provide the kind of off-the-bench defensive energy that former Syracuse center Baye Moussa Keita did in the past few seasons, and that the team needs him back for that role.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBoth Coleman and Obokoh were in full uniform and talking with reporters at media day.“It’s hard. Coming in here, and everyone’s practicing, and I want to practice,” Coleman said. “I enjoy taking my time, I don’t want to rush it or anything. It’s been hard. I’m just ready to get back out there.”center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

French Open: Nadal Inches Closer to 11th Roland Garros Title

first_imgHowever, he quickly recovered and looked to have the ascendancy, but the Argentine let six break-point chances slip and Nadal pounced with a solitary break in the 10th game which was enough to allow him to seal the set after 54 minutes of high-octane action.The dominant Spaniard, who has never failed to win the title when reaching the last four at Roland Garros, rampaged his way through the next, building a 5-0 lead, before Del Potro raised his arms in celebration after managing a hold to avoid the dreaded bagel.Nadal was not in a charitable frame of mind, though, as he cantered through his next service game with new balls to edge closer to another final. Nadal extinguished the threat of Juan Martin del Potro to canter into another French Open final, where he will be seeking a record-extending 11th title.The 6-4 6-1 6-2 victory saw Nadal become just the second male player in the Open era to reach 11 finals at the same Grand Slam tournament, equalling Roger Federer’s record at Wimbledon.Nadal has now won 24 of his 27 Grand Slam semi-finals as he swept aside the threat of the Argentine in clinical fashion to set up a meeting with Dominic Thiem – the only man to have beaten him on the dirt in 2018 – in Sunday’s final. Del Potro, the 2009 US Open champion, appeared to be running on empty at the start of the third set and it was no surprise when the 32-year-old top seed switched gears again to make an early breakthrough.A sumptuous cross-court backhand winner by Nadal handed him a double-break in the fifth game and it wasn’t long after before he closed out proceedings in two hours and 14 minutes to take his place in Sunday’sshowpiece against Thiem, who he enjoys a 6-3 head-to-head record against. World No 1, Rafael Nadal takes another step closer to an 11th French Open title and 17th at the majors by setting up final with Dominic Thiem on Sundaycenter_img “It was a very difficult first set and Juan Martin had lots of opportunities. He was a little unfortunate,” said Nadal who reeled off 14 of the last 17 games, having seen Del Potro fail to convert any of his seven break points.“It’s impossible without hard work and going through tough moments. You have to be focused and keep your passion for the game. I never dreamed in 2005 when I played my first final here that I would be in another one.”Del Potro seemed to hurt his left hip during the third game of the match after getting wrong-footed and called the tournament doctor with Nadal leading 3-2. “Thiem is an amazing player. He beat me in Madrid, he has big power so I have to be at my best and improve,” added Nadal. “But I believe I will be ready for the final.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

European teams to boycott enlarged Club World Cup

first_img0Shares0000FIFA president Gianni Infantino hopes to win support for a 48-team 2022 World Cup at a meeting in Miami © AFP/File / Alberto PIZZOLIMIAMI, United States, Mar 15 – Top European clubs said Friday they will boycott a planned 24-team Club World Cup in 2021, dealing a blow to FIFA chief Gianni Infantino’s overhaul of the competition.In a statement released shortly before FIFA’s ruling council were expected to greenlight the new tournament at a meeting in Miami, the European Club Association said its members would not participate. “ECA clubs will not participate in the Club World Cup in 2021 and will assess participation in the Club World Cup in 2024,” an ECA spokesman told AFP.A 17-page report distributed to the 37 members of FIFA’s ruling body calls for the new tournament to take place between June 17 and July 4, 2021, replacing the Confederations Cup international tournament.But the ECA have argued against the plans despite FIFA President Infantino pushing strongly for the new-look competition.Any boycott by European clubs would instantly diminish the viability of the competition.A report distributed to FIFA Council members this week said five of the six regional confederations are in favour of the proposal for the tournament.However European governing body UEFA, which accuses FIFA of a lack of consultation and transparency over the project, has opposed plans moving forward, citing scheduling problems.UEFA had earlier lobbied for 12 clubs to take part in any new tournament. However under the proposal tabled at Friday’s meeting in Miami, Europe would have only eight slots.South America will have six qualified clubs, while Africa, Asia, North and Central America will each have three teams. One team will represent the Oceania region.The issue of a revamped Club World Cup has been simmering for the past year after it emerged that a tournament bankrolled by investors from Asia and the Middle East had been offered to FIFA. That funding offer, reportedly worth $25 billion, was later withdrawn.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
