Bild: Croatia is among the eight countries that German tourists could visit this summer

Posted on by

first_imgThere are also various other factors, from fear of travel, declining spending and financial power, lack of vacations, etc.… Measures are slowly being planned or are already being relaxed in each country, which means there will be a strong narrative of each country (buy and travel locally) in order to start the local economy as soon as possible, which is currently an imperative. It is in this segment that the Germans are very much aware of the need to strengthen the local economy. Of course, one should be aware and realistic, until a vaccine or cure is found, we cannot expect a recovery in tourism, which will surely last from that moment for 2-3 years. In the current situation, we also cannot expect large tourist traffic and tourist activity, but we should certainly look at it and be optimistic, ie do our best to catch some tourist traffic. That is why we need to react quickly and be ready, listen to the situation in every market and be proactive. Of course, to emphasize once again, one should be optimistic and do everything to activate the tourist market, as always, but one should also be aware of the realistic framework. This tourist year needs to be crossed, at least when it comes to some big tourist numbers, and if the situation gives us a chance, of course we need to embrace it and do everything in our power. But also our long coast has too many places and coves for distance as well as smaller tourist destinations. Certainly the demand will be for houses and villas with swimming pools, especially those in rural areas and away from city centers, as well as active holidays and the interior. Certainly, such texts and advertisements in the most widely read and extremely influential German newspapers are a big plus. And just a great foundation, if and when the situation is further improved in an optimistic scenario, to direct promotional budgets to save from the tourist season what to save that. / / / A VIEW FROM GERMANY: IF YOU TRAVEL ACROSS BORDERS AT ALL, THE GOAL WILL BE A EUROPEAN COUNTRY But we must also be aware of the question of when and if it will open borders. As Capak recently stated, borders will be opened only if the situation in other countries is stable, ie if it is better than in our country. Certainly, regional travel will be in trend in the coming years, not so far from your home. Here, as a car destination, we certainly have an advantage. Also, after more than a month of quarantine, self-isolation, psychological fear and negative news, of course, everyone has a very strong desire to travel, to finally “breathe”. But what will be the real rational desire to travel when it comes during that time we will see. One is desire and the other is reality. However, fear is the strongest and the main opponent of tourism. / / / GERMANY AS OUR MAIN BROADCASTING MARKET, RECOVERY EXPECTED ONLY IN AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER Also, in addition to Bild, today it is German state television ZDF in the morning program reported on Croatia, and they released and staff from the new CNTB campaign #CroatiaLongDistanceLove. BILD: So will Croatia leave our vacation Factors that will play a role Prema article the most widely read German newspaper picture, Croatia is one of eight countries that German tourists could visit this summer. This fear is further expressed for families with children. And that’s why it’s important to be close to some hospital center, and the islands in this story are extra risky, because of the distance and without a direct road connection to the mainland. Despite the uncertain situation in which it is not known whether tourist trips can be realized, Bild singled out eight countries that could be desirable destinations for German tourists this summer, namely: Croatia, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Tunisia, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland. Namely, Bild believes that these countries have responded well to the pandemic and that they could be ready for the arrival of tourists by the summer. The situation is changing from day to day, and we should react accordingly. At the moment, no one can say for sure what the weather will be like in September, and how the whole coronavirus situation will develop. Admittedly, epidemiologists expect a second wave of spread sometime in September, but for now, scientists and epidemiologists from around the world still have too many questions and assumptions and too few answers. / / / ISLIVING THE MOOD OF AUSTRIAN TOURISTS AND THE IMPACT ON THE SUMMER SEASON IN CROATIA Until May 03, a warning to citizens not to travel abroad is in force in Germany, and by the end of April it will be decided whether the recommendations will be extended. Certainly, Switzerland and Austria are also counting on German tourists, who in the context of the current need for social distance, active vacation, nature, ecology have a strong trump card. As well as the fact that the destinations are closer than us. BILD: Wo man im sommer trotz Corona Urlaub machen kann Also, Bild ranked the chances of tourist trips in these countries, and Croatia and Greece are in the category of “good chances”. Austria and Switzerland are in the “very likely” holiday category, while other countries are in the “likely” category. It is stated that Croatia introduced strict measures in the fight against the virus in a timely manner, which was a good decision that paid off. Director of the CNTB in Germany Romeo Draghicchio believes that in Croatia there are many accommodations in which it is possible to maintain a distance between guests. “Croatia is in a good position due to its accessibility by car via Austria and Slovenia, and if these countries open their borders, air flights are also possible.Draghiccho points out. last_img read more

COVID-19: House, watchdog call for delay of regional elections

Posted on by

first_img“Ideas and programs can be explained through mass media or other platforms that do not require face-to-face meetings. In this digital age, campaign activities without involving crowds are very possible,” he said.Election watchdog the Association for Elections and Democracy (Perludem) director Titi Anggraini said that, although the voting day was still a way off, some stages involving intensive interactions between officials and voters were currently taking place, including voter data updating, candidate verification as well as voting committee (PPS) recruitment and training.”It’s better to delay several stages of the regional elections, which indeed can affect the voting day schedule, rather than ending up with a mess,” she said.Titi went on to say that the KPU should not underestimate the pandemic as other countries had also decided or had weighed to postpone elections due to coronavirus outbreak, such as the United Kingdom, which had postponed its local and mayoral elections from May to next year to mitigate the virus impact.”Elections for humans, not humans for elections. [It’s] humans first,” she said, adding that the KPU should immediately coordinate with the House, the government and other relevant parties to prepare a comprehensive risk management response.Read also: Indonesian regions report lack of funds to hold 2020 local pollsArticle 120 of the 2015 law on regional elections stipulates that elections can be postponed in the event of disruptions, including national disasters, that would affect the process.“The law allows the KPU to decide the matter, and I don’t think it will have any impact on the legitimacy of the elections. We should not take any risks,” she said.As of Sunday, Indonesia has confirmed 117 COVID-19 cases across the country, including in the provinces of Jakarta, Yogyakarta, West Java, Central Java, Banten, Bali, North Sulawesi and West Kalimantan.Five people have died from the disease and eight have recovered, according to government data.KPU commissioner Viryan Azis vowed to consider a postponement of the regional elections but added that no decision had been made to date.”One of the options we are considering is to delay the stages of the elections or to delay voting day itself,” Viryan said on Monday.Topics : The House of Representatives and civil society groups have called on the General Elections Commission (KPU) to consider postponing regional elections scheduled for September and change political campaigning methods in response to the coronavirus pandemic.Deputy House Speaker Sufmi Dasco Ahmad said on Monday that the KPU, the Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu), the Office of the Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister as well as the Home Ministry should discuss with stakeholders the possibility to delay the elections or to decide an alternative polling day.“Perhaps the election can be postponed or the schedule can be maintained but only certain mechanisms applied to avoid spreading the coronavirus,” Sufmi told journalists on Monday. The 2020 simultaneous regional elections, scheduled for Sept. 23, are aimed at electing 270 regional leaders: nine governors, 224 regents and 37 mayors.The campaign period, which would normally involve candidates meeting and interacting with many people, is slated to start on July 11 and end on Sept. 19.Sufmi said the KPU should come up with alternatives to conventional methods of political campaigning – which typically involve large public rallies and thereby would heighten the risk of communicating the virus widely — such as campaigning through social media platforms.Read also: Bali sets ‘Siaga’ advisory in keeping with govt policy to curb COVID-19 spreadlast_img read more

Hugh Bowden cutting back after 30 years at The American

Posted on by

first_img Latest posts by Stephen Fay (see all) Bio Clued in – May 29, 2019 Latest Posts Hugh BowdenELLSWORTH — If you were in charge of seating arrangements for The Ellsworth American’s editorial department, sports department, ombudsman, ace photographer, associate proofreader, corporate trustee, Open Meeting Law expert and newsroom mentor you would need only one chair.Hugh Bowden — multitalented, multifaceted and, goodness knows, multitasking — is cutting back after 30 years to spend more time with his grown daughters, his grandchildren and his music.Did we mention he composes and performs music? Or that he’s a voracious reader who regularly consumes a novel a night?At the end of the month, Bowden, 72, will focus on editorials and The American’s award-winning editorial page. Sports reporter Taylor Vortherms, who joined The American full time in 2013 after graduating from the Missouri School of Journalism, will succeed Bowden as sports editor.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“My three decades here at The American have flown by,” said Bowden. “That’s what happens when you love the job that you do and the people with whom you do it. Those feelings haven’t changed. But aging and health issues sometimes force one to reorder his priorities, and while I am still healthy, I want some increased time with my family and friends and the opportunity to take on some other activities that I enjoy doing.“Under this new arrangement,” said Bowden, “I’ll still be able to contribute to the newspaper I love and maintain my association with my colleagues. So it’s the best of both worlds.”Almost a native of Brooklin, Bowden’s Hancock County roots run deep.He was born in Washington, D.C., but his mother, Linnie, soon moved back to her Maine hometown with baby in tow, and two more brothers — Bill, now deceased, and Bob — arrived over the next four years. As did his beloved stepdad, Winslow Bowden, who married Linnie after her divorce and raised the three boys as his own, formally adopting them when they were in their late teens.Bowden and his brothers all graduated from Brooklin High School before it was shuttered in the 1960s.His journalism roots also run deep. He broke into the game in 1964 — after spending three years in the U.S. Army — when his mother told Hugh that Jerry Durnbaugh, founder of The Weekly Packet in Blue Hill, was looking for a reporter/ad salesman. “I was an abysmal salesman,” Bowden said, but he stayed on and learned the reporter’s trade. When Durnbaugh moved on to a job at the Kennebec Journal, Bowden became editor.During his time at the Packet, Bowden also served a term as president of the Maine Press Association.Bowden left journalism — temporarily — for a successful run for the Maine Legislature. He served one term in 1979-80, but with two young daughters — Marcie and Jamie — and a marriage that was ending, he did not seek re-election.In 1980, partnering with James McCaffrey, a retired New York advertising executive, Bowden started the Castine Patriot weekly newspaper. The two of them had a good run and the Castine Patriot flourished. But when McCaffrey decided to retire and sell the paper, Bowden was not in a position to buy. He took a job in community relations at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.But, before long, James Russell Wiggins, editor and publisher of The Ellsworth American, recruited Bowden as managing editor. He later was named executive editor and chief editorial writer, and took on the sports editor-reporter-photographer role as well.Wiggins, editor and publisher of The American for 31 years, earned wide respect and admiration for his weekly editorials and poems. But Ellsworth American Publisher Alan Baker recalls that, as the end of Wiggins’ career approached, “many faithful readers expressed concern about what would become of our editorial page once Mr. Wiggins retired.Because the newspaper’s editorials are unsigned, and express the institutional opinion of the paper, said Baker, few readers realized that Hugh Bowden had been authoring an increasing proportion of our editorials. After many years of editing all Wiggins’ writing, Hugh had mastered the Wiggins’ style.“When Russ retired back in 2000, the change was seamless. Nobody could tell that he was no longer writing our editorials. What a marvelous testimonial to Hugh’s talents as an editorial writer,” said Baker. “We are fortunate, and proud, that The American and its readers will continue to enjoy and appreciate Hugh’s editorial contributions for many more years.”Reception for Hugh BowdenDec. 4 at Ellsworth High SchoolEllsworth High School and The Ellsworth American will host an informal reception for Hugh Bowden Thursday, Dec. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Ellsworth High School cafeteria. Student athletes, coaches, athletic directors, town officials and members of the public are cordially invited. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.center_img Stephen FayManaging Editor at The Ellsworth AmericanStephen Fay, managing editor of The Ellsworth American since 1996, is a third-generation Californian.

Monmouth Arts Continues to Paint a Colorful Picture

Posted on by

first_imgTeresa Staub, the new executive director of Monmouth Arts, helps spread the news of the group’s work in the arts.By Mary Ann Bourbeau |RED BANK – Monmouth Arts, the county’s official arts agency, is dedicated to promoting a vibrant arts community that enhances the quality of life for all of its residents.Teresa Staub took over in February as executive director and she’s looking forward to getting the word out about the organization to both artists and residents alike. Staub worked as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society for 11 years. Her daughter became involved with Phoenix Productions in Red Bank, and instead of waiting for her in the car, Staub started helping the theater group with props. Before she knew it, she was producing a show.“Once I got involved, I absolutely loved it,” she said.She was a fundraiser for New Jersey Repertory Company in Long Branch, the Algonquin Arts Theatre in Manasquan and the Axelrod Performing Arts Center in Deal before coming to Monmouth Arts.“I am so proud to be a part of a nonprofit that allows our arts community to flourish,” she said. “Through its many programs and services, Monmouth Arts sparks cultural growth as well as provides much-needed funds to arts organizations to create a thriving cultural environment.”Monmouth Arts’ programs are made possible through funding from the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Monmouth County Historical Commission and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/ Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment of the Arts. With an annual budget of $500,000 and a five-person staff, the organization supports artists and arts groups through a multitude of efforts such as networking events, workshops, art walks, grants and other resources. Some of the professional development opportunities include workshops on strategic planning, using social media and developing an artist statement. The organization also publicizes artist performances and exhibitions in e-blasts, through social media and on the website.Monmouth Arts was founded in 1971 after the Junior League of Monmouth County saw the need for a central agency to coordinate and assist all county artists and arts organizations. It began with seed money from the Junior League and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. In 1973, an anonymous donor provided funds to purchase Walter Reade’s Carlton Theatre in Red Bank, later renamed the Count Basie Theatre in honor of Red Bank native William James “Count” Basie. Although they are both still located at the same Monmouth Street address, the two non- profits separated in 1999 so that each could better focus on its individual mission. “People should stop by to find out all we do,” said Staub.The Monmouth Arts community is made up of 75 nonprofit arts groups, 1,400 artists and 3,080 creative businesses such as art galleries, theater groups, bookstores, music and arts academies, dance schools, design, advertising, architecture and publishing businesses. It also has many individual arts supporters.“I always look at Monmouth Arts as the group behind the curtain,” said Staub.The Monmouth Teen Arts Festival, which takes place every March at Brookdale Community College, is one of its biggest events, attracting 2,000 middle and high school students each year. Sneak Peek Film and Reception events are held in conjunction with Bow Tie Cinemas, Sony Pictures Classics and area restaurants. The next one will take place on June 15 at Front Street Trattoria, followed by a screening of “Maudie” at Bow Tie Cinemas.The 2017 Monmouth County Senior Art Show will run from Aug. 4-30 at the Monmouth County Library headquarters in Manalapan, with a special reception on Aug. 16. First place winners in both professional and non-professional levels across 11 categories will advance to the state competition.“I think people would be surprised to see all we offer the community,” said Staub.
