Why did Apprentice Hlapić travel to France?

first_imgThe Lima Association, in collaboration with the ship’s 3D street art artist Filip Mrvelja, told another great tourist story “Bike Adventures of Hlapich and Lima” which aims to promote the most famous work of Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić and Slavonski Brod as tourist destinations.The project is a continuation of the story where Hlapić grew up, a painter who goes on a new journey with his friend in search of good people. He decided to travel by bicycle, and the destination is Toulon in France, where the Street Art Festival is taking place, in which Hlapić participates.”Since the biggest brand of Slavonski Brod is one of the greatest Croatian writers – Ivana Brlić – Mažuranić, we named the project “Bike Adventures of Hlapich & Lima”, which alludes to the title “Brave Adventures of Hlapich” (The Strange Adventures of Apprentice Hlapich)”Points out Krešimir Herceg, president Lima Association from Slavonski BrodThe plot of the film follows two characters who set off on a trip to France by bicycle, and the entire trip was filmed and the documentary “Bike Adventures of Hlapich and Lima – First Journey” was made from the material. We invite you to the promotion and premiere of the documentary that will take place in Slavonski Brod, at the location of the Youth Center, Ante Starčevića 11, on Friday, February 05, starting at 19.30 pm. “As we have been working for the last six years on the promotion of Ivana Brlić Mažuranić and her works, and Hlapić is the most translated book IB.Mažuranić, we wanted to combine two stories through one modern story, Hlapić and the development of cycling tourism in Slavonski Brod. Throughout the project, we have two goals. The first is the promotion of Ivana Brlić Mažuranić and Šegrt Hlapić as a cultural asset of Slavonski Brod, and the second goal is to break various prejudices against other nations. We want to show that there are good people everywhere in the world and the whole point is for a man to be a man”Said Herceg.Every success begins and ends with people, so this way we want to highlight them. In addition to the idea duo, the ship’s film director Berislav Petrović, who is also the director of the documentary, and Tin Horvatin and the Zebrica Association, who created a special Bike Adventures website, dedicated their knowledge and time to the project. Also, the whole project, like any other, would not have succeeded without the sponsors who provided the minimum financial resources to make this great tourism project a success. That is why we thank the Tourist Board of Slavonski Brod and Giant Croatia for the promotion of our tourism.Be sure to visit the premiere of the documentary about Hlapić’s adventure in Toulon, France. And when you are already there, we recommend that you personally meet the whole team who with their love for Slavonski Brod tells various tourist stories, acts proactively, promotes the destination and with boundless energy and will deserve the title of ambassadors of Croatian tourism.Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1048042865251857/last_img read more

NEWS SCAN: Funds to fight Ebola, plague; beef product plants closing; European measles pace slows

first_imgMay 8, 2012NIH awards $8.1 million for new drugs against Ebola, plague, MarburgThe National Institutes of Health has awarded the University of Washington (UW), the University of Texas, and Seattle-based Kineta Inc. an $8.1 million biodefense grant to develop new drugs to treat Ebola, plague, Marburg, yellow fever, and other diseases, according to a Kineta news release today. The funds will help Kineta move two small-molecule drug candidates closer to clinical trials. Its program, Agonists of the Retinoic Acid Inducible Gene I (RIG-I) Innate Immune Pathway, focuses on such high-impact viruses as influenza, hepatitis C, West Nile, and respiratory syncytial virus. RIG-I is a molecular “on/off” switch that triggers the body’s innate immune system, the company said in the release. The grant will increase the number of disease targets to include less common henipaviruses and filoviruses, such as yellow fever, Ebola, Marburg, Japanese encephalitis, and plague. “These diseases are major concerns of the United States government for their risk of sparking a pandemic and their potential use as bioterrorist weapons. By utilizing an innate immune pathway we hope to develop better drugs that won’t be outsmarted by viral mutation,” UW professor Michael Gale, Jr., PhD, principal investigator of the grant, said in the news release.May 8 Kineta news releaseControversy over beef product forces closing of three plantsSouth Dakota–based Beef Products Inc. (BPI) will permanently close three of its four plants that make “lean finely textured beef” (LFTB) because of attacks on the product, which critics call “pink slime,” the Associated Press (AP) reported yesterday. BPI had suspended operations at the three plants, located in Amarillo, Tex., Garden City, Kan., and Waterloo, Iowa, when the controversy peaked in March. The closures will mean the loss of 650 jobs. A BPI plant in South Sioux City, Neb., will keep operating but at a lower rate. BPI blamed the closures on what it said were unfounded attacks on its product, which consists of beef trimmings that are heated slightly, centrifuged to remove liquefied fat, and treated with ammonia to kill bacteria. LFTB has been used for years in ground beef, including in the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) school lunch program, but was not listed on labels. No foodborne disease outbreaks have been linked to it, but recent consumer opposition caused some grocery and restaurant chains to drop it and prompted the USDA to allow schools to opt out of using it. The company had hoped to recover from the setback but has concluded that doing so would be impossible in the near term, BPI spokesman Rich Jochum told the AP. Marion Nestle, a nutrition and food studies professor at New York University, told the AP that BPI misinterpreted consumers’ concern about LFTB as being focused on safety rather than on not knowing what was in their food.Measles activity off to a slower start in EuropeMeasles activity in European countries is lower so far this year compared this point in the 2010 and 2011 seasons, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said today in its latest update, which covers the first 2 months of the year. Through the end of February, countries reported 1,447 cases, compared with 5,731 during the first 2 months of 2011 and 5,752 during the same period of 2010. Fewer outbreaks have been reported in most countries, except for the United Kingdom, Romania, and Spain. Among several ongoing UK outbreaks, one in Merseyside is the largest in northwestern England since the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine was introduced in 1988. Another hot spot is the Ukraine, which has reported 8,082 cases in six districts as of Apr 24. The ECDC said Romania was the only country to exceed 1 case per 100,000 population during the reporting period. Twelve countries reported no measles cases in January and February. Of 1,315 patients with known vaccination status, 83% were unvaccinated, and 75% of the vaccinated group had received only one dose of the measles vaccine.May 8 ECDC statementlast_img read more

Coronavirus Scan for Oct 07, 2015

first_imgJordan MERS cases rise to 16; no new Saudi casesJordan’s health ministry today reported another MERS-CoV case, involving a 53-year-old man who had contact with an earlier case, according to a report from Kuwait News Agency (KUNA). The story’s Amman dateline and the man’s status as a contact suggest that his infection is likely related to a hospital outbreak in the Jordanian capital.The latest MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) illness reflects the 16th recent case in Jordan, 6 of which were fatal. A hospital outbreak has been under way in Amman since the end of August.Oct 7 KUNA storyMeanwhile, Saudi Arabia has now gone 6 days without a MERS case, according to an update today from the country’s Ministry of Health (MOH). It reported one more recovery from the disease and noted that 16 people are still being treated for their infections.  Since the virus was first detected in Saudi Arabia in 2012, a total of 1,251 illnesses have been reported, 536 of them fatal.In a related development, representatives from Saudi Arabia’s agriculture and health ministries will hold a meeting with camel owners later this month to discuss ways to protect people and animals from MERS-CoV, Arab News reported today. Camels are thought to be the main source of the virus, but it’s still unclear what other animals might play a role.The government recently barred the practice of camel sacrifice during the Hajj pilgrimage as a step to reduce the threat. Health officials have had a tough time getting camel owners on board with some of the measures, and some owners have threatened legal action against government agencies that say camels are the main source of MERS-CoV.Oct 7 Saudi MOH statement Oct 7 Arab News story  Chinese scientists find SARS-like virus in horseshoe batsChinese researchers have identified SARS-like coronaviruses (SL-CoVs) in horseshoe bats in that country, highlighting a potential reservoir of human SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome), according to a new study in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.The researchers conducted genetic analyses on bat samples from across the country, as well as samples from wild and domestic civets in three provinces. They found 15 SL-CoVs from nine bat species in 11 provinces but no such viruses in the civets.They noted that the SL-CoVs are characterized by a set of unique accessory open reading frames (ORFs) located between the M and N genes of the virus. Among the unique accessory ORFs, ORF8 was noted as highly variable, and the investigators noted that one of its three types—type 1—had not before been identified in bat populations. Further, they noted that the two ORF8 type 1 viruses that were identified only in Rhinolophus sinicus, or Chinese horseshoe bats, were closely related to human SARS viruses.The authors conclude, “This finding provides new genetic evidence for Chinese horseshoe bats as the source of human SARS-CoV.”Oct 3 J Infect Dis abstractlast_img read more

Economists say Jackson reforms will cost £70m a year

first_imgThe Jackson reforms of civil litigation will cost the taxpayer more than £70m a year in employers’ liability cases, according to a report prepared by economists. The report, published by consultancy firm London Economics, states that much-vaunted savings in damages pay-outs and insurance premiums will be offset if the number of claims falls significantly. The proposals by Lord Justice Jackson for civil litigation reform have been largely adopted by the government’s Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders (LASPO) bill, now before the Lords. They include a 25% cap on success fees and the removal of recoverability of success and after-the-event (ATE) insurance from the losing party. The report’s authors, Moritz Godel and Gavan Conlon, state that local authorities and the NHS will still have to pay for the effects of personal injury accidents even when the victims are not able to claim. This will in turn mean they cannot claim back costs either through the NHS injury cost recovery scheme or the Compensation Recovery Unit. In total, Jackson reforms are expected to save £34m in damages pay-outs and £11m in saved ATE premium payments. But those savings are outweighed by the £60m cost to the NHS and local authorities from employers liability cases that are not taken on. The report estimates there will be a further hole of £43m in lost tax revenue from lawyers’ and ATE insurers’ income. The cost savings are a key facet of the government’s argument that claims numbers and associated costs to the public are out of hand. Lord Collins, a Labour peer, said the taxpayer was the ‘loser’ when he spoke at the second reading of the LASPO bill on Monday. ‘While the direct savings attributable to the Jackson proposals are substantial, estimates based on public data suggest that they will be outweighed by direct and indirect costs resulting in a sizeable net loss to the Exchequer of £70.2 million per year. The main sources of loss are tax and the recovery of payments from public bodies resulting from PI claims. ‘So, on the behalf of the real people behind Britain’s dreadful industrial disease and accident statistics, I plead for the government to think again and put fairness and justice first.’ The report was paid for by personal injury firm Thompsons, although there was no editorial influence.last_img read more

Couple jailed for harassing judge after birthday card sent to her home

first_imgA couple involved in contentious litigation sent a birthday card to the home address of the family judge hearing their case, telling her to ‘keep up the good work stealing for profit’, it has emerged. The incident was one of five highlighted in a High Court judgment handed down last month.The man and woman are described in the judgment as domestic partners involved in ‘long and contentious’ litigation in the family courts which concerned the adoption of children.They were convicted of harassment in July 2018. Their appeal against conviction was dismissed by a Crown court three months later and each was sentenced to 16 week’ imprisonment. The Crown court sought the High Court’s opinion on whether it had erred in its determinations.In the first incident, the day before a court hearing in which the appellants were involved, two emails were sent to the judge’s personal email address with her married name, which was different to her name as a judge.In the second incident, on their way into court and while they were being searched by security staff, the appellants said they knew the judge’s home address.In the third incident, comments made in court referred to the judge’s family. As they left the court, the man wished the judge a happy birthday. The High Court says it was the judge’s birthday that day.In the fourth incident, the day after her birthday, the judge received a birthday card at her home.In the fifth incident, a live video was uploaded on to the man’s Facebook account. Lord Justice Simon, delivering the High Court judgment, said it was ‘unnecessary to set out the highly derogatory statements about the judge’ but it was mentioned in the video that the judge had locked her Facebook account down, but her husband’s was still open.Simon LJ said the Crown court was entitled to take into account that the couple’s conduct was directed against a judge performing an important public duty.He said: ‘The appellants had been parties to proceedings before the judge for about two years. The proceedings had concerned the adoption of children and were in their nature sensitive. The appellants intended to show the judge that they had extensive knowledge about parts of her life which were separate from her work as a judge. Their conduct was designed to harass and intimidate her in relation to her public duty to the prejudice of the proper administration of justice.’Although the case focused on the public duty discharged by a judge, Davis LJ said ‘it might have been any other official carrying out a public duty, or indeed, any other citizen who is entitled to be protected from harassment by the operation of the criminal law’.last_img read more

Dibalik Sengkarut Jadwal Kereta Bawah Tanah di New York

first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Sebagai respon atas cibiran dari penggun jasa, MTA mengatakan, adanya masalah ini disebabkan kepadatan penduduk yang berlebihan. Biasanya penyebab penundaan yang mendadak adalah perubahan jadwal pemeliharaan yang membuat perjalanan kereta bawah tanah menjadi lebih lambat. Tetapi MTA belum menyesuaikan jadwal yang benar dan membutuhkan tinjauan yang sangat besar.Kereta bawah tanah di New York sudah dibuka sejak tahun 1904 dan menawarkan kecepatan 24 km per jam untuk kereta lokal dan38,6 km per jam untuk kereta ekspress. Tarifnya pun saat itu terbilang murah yakni hanya 5 sen. Naiknya pendapatan para pekerja pengguna kereta membuat kereta api lebih menarik. Kemudian lingkungan sekitarnya dikembangkan dengan apartemen dibandingkan rumah keluarga biasa.Baca juga: Inilah 10 Kereta Bawah Tanah Paling Keren di Dunia!Pada Perang Dunia I, inflasi mengurangi separuh nilai dolar, namun harga tiket kereta tetap 5 sen. Kemudian di tahun 1940, diresmikan Otoritas Transit New York (NYTC) dan membuat ongkos kereta naik hingga 10 sen walaupun masih dianggap tidak cukup untuk pemeliharaan kereta. Pada 1970-an, NYCT digabung ke dalam MTA, sebuah otoritas negara, namun negara bagian lainnya tidak melakukan jauh lebih baik. Jarak rata-rata kereta bawah tanah antara kegagalan (MDBF) turun menjadi 6.000 mil pada tahun 1980,Mulai tahun 1980-an, MTA berinvestasi dalam perawatan jangka panjang, pendekatan “perbaiki dulu” yang oleh banyak ahli sekarang mendukung jalan raya. MTA memulai proyek multi dekade untuk mencapai kondisi perbaikan yang baik, di mana tidak akan ada lagi jaminan pemeliharaan dan tidak perlu melakukan perawatan di luar perbaikan normal.Ini bertepatan dengan adopsi perencanaan keuangan jangka panjang MTA yang terlambat, dengan rencana modal lima tahun, yang sebagian besar berfokus pada SOGR dan penggantian normal, dan sedikit uang tersisa untuk ekspansi. Ini mengurangi rencana penggalangannya: Kereta api yang dibeli pada tahun 1970-an berambisi namun ternyata menjadi lemon, sementara yang telah dibeli sejak tahun 1980-an telah konservatif, kehilangan Perkembangan seperti gang terbuka yang rutin di kebanyakan sistem kereta bawah tanah.Baca juga: Sejarah MRT Singapura, Dibangun di Atas Keterbatasan LahanMeskipun muncul banyak keluhan, dalam praktiknya, MTA dan NYCT berjalan dengan autopilot. NYCT tidak membuat perubahan besar; MTA membuat sedikit usaha untuk membuat lembaga penyusunnya bekerja sama, termasuk NYCT, tetapi juga dua operator kereta api komuter.Akibat pelajaran pada krisis tahun 1970-an mengajarkan MTA untuk bersikap konservatif tentang perluasan layanan, pemliharaan peralatan, dan kecepatan sistem.

Bulan lalu misalnya, sebuah kereta berhenti 45 menit saat cuaca panas.Dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari vox.com (11/7/2017), Ryan Cooper dari New York mengatakan, banyak masinis kereta bawah tanah yang mengungkapkan kemarahan di Twitter dan menyalahkan Gubernur Gordon Zomo sebagai yang bertanggung jawab atas layanan kereta bawah tanah.

Scholes hails Victor Moses

first_imgEx-England and Manchester United midfield star Paul Scholes has hailed Chelsea forward Victor Moses, saying the new Chelsea formation has brought out the best in him.Moses, who has been out of favour since he arrived Stamford Bridge in 2011, is now one of the best Chelsea players under Antonio Conte as he now plays as right wing-back in a 3-4-3 formation.Scholes, who is now a sports pundit at BT Sports, said: “You have to be happy for him. “The last five years he has been shipped out to places on loan but like you said earlier, the formation has seemed to suit him better.” Victor Moses, who helped Chelsea to cruise past Everton over the weekend, is now expected to arrive at the Super Eagles camp in Abuja ahead of Nigeria’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Algeria on Saturday.last_img read more
