Floating houses new accommodation offer in Pula

Posted on by

first_img“Croatia has one of the most beautiful coasts in the world and our idea was to allow guests who arrive on that coast to stay, not only in the first row to the sea, as they could before, but also in the first row at sea. Floating houses have long been a common way to have a pleasant stay on the water all over the world, so we do not discover any ‘hot water’, but only open the possibility to enjoy your stay on the Adriatic in the same way.”, Sebastian Selan, director and one of the founders of the company 3maran, told Glas Istre. Floating houses are a project of the Slovenian company 3maran, whose “sea” apartments are already part of the offer in the marina Punat on Krk, Slovenian Portorož and Italian Rimini. From now on, cottages are also available in Marina Veruda, where the first four, out of a total of ten planned, floating apartments, have been set up in recent days. Source / photo: Glas Istre; 3maran In Pula Marina Veruda, a new tourist offer was presented – floating houses. Namely, these are apartments that allow their visitors to rest on the sea surface, and with the complete comfort they would have in facilities on the coast, reports Glas Istre. In any case, this is an interesting tourist product with which Marina Veruda expands its offer, and floating houses will surely attract the interest of many visitors to Pula and the Veruda Channel. Floating house in Marina Veruda / Photo: 3maran He adds that the trend of living, and even living, in floating houses is already recognized around the world. “In the canals of Amsterdam, on the Danube in Vienna or on the river Seine in the middle of Paris, this has been a common thing for a very long time and it was actually very easy to imagine a similar story on the Adriatic coast. Before entering the entrepreneurial waters, I was the director of the marina in Portorož for seven years, and it was in that marina that we completed our first project, ie in 2016 we set up the first floating houses. Today, there are a total of 41 such houses and their occupancy is 95 percent in the summer months, or about 65 percent throughout the year because the climate allows it. After that, we realized the project in Italy, ie the marina Portoverde in Rimini, and our first floating houses in Croatia were set up two years ago in the marina Punat on the island of Krk”, Explained Selan.last_img read more

The Latest: NHL’s Wild to pay employees through April

Posted on by

first_img___Global players’ union FIFPro has called on soccer clubs to stop firing players or cutting their salaries before talks.FIFPro says it’s “extremely concerned” that clubs in several countries “have begun to immediately lay off players or unilaterally reduce their salaries” because of the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.The Netherlands-based union says many players worldwide earn at or below average domestic income “and would be severely affected by salary decreases.”One club in Switzerland, Sion, terminated the contracts of nine players including former Arsenal pair Johan Djourou and Alexandre Song, who declined to accept reduced wages in a federal unemployment insurance program. Candidates to succeed 22-year incumbent Gian Franco Kasper as president, and for seats on the FIS ruling council, must be declared 30 days before the rescheduled elections.The three candidates for Alpine worlds in 2025 are: Saalbach, Austria; Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany; Crans-Montana, Switzerland.___Atlético Madrid has followed Barcelona’s lead and announced it will reduce its players’ and coaches’ salaries during the stoppage of competition due to the coronavirus crisis. A day after Barcelona had done the same, Atlético said Friday that it will reduce its payroll temporarily “to ensure the future” of the club. The project will deliver meals to six Emory Healthcare hospitals five times each week.The meals are being prepared by restaurants Forza Storico and Miller Union.

A Russia-based basketball league with teams in five countries has abandoned its season without declaring a champion because of the coronavirus outbreak.VTB United League CEO Ilona Korstin says it’s not appropriate to continue the season “in the current situation when borders are closed, teams can’t train at basketball arenas and clubs have to allow foreign players to go home.”Korstin says the league will start preparing for the 2020-21 season.Russian club BC Khimki was leading the league with an 18-1 record when it was suspended.___ More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 McDavid says he didn’t want to take the chance of going through crowded airports and contract the new coronavirus in fear of potentially spreading it to his parents and grandparents.

The NPSL started play in 2003 and had planned to expand from 91 to 94 teams this season.The league was to have entered 14 teams in the U.S. Open Cup, which was suspended because of the pandemic.The NPSL summer season had been set to start in May and end in early August. The league said Friday that many of its venues would be unavailable after that because they are on college and school campuses. ___Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens says guard Marcus Smart is doing well and remains in good spirits following his positive test for coronavirus last week.Smart announced his diagnosis on March 19, seven days after Utah Jazz All-Stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell tested positive for COVID-19.

Among men, only Roger Federer, with 20, and Rafael Nadal, with 19, have won more.___Jae Crowder of the Miami Heat has donated $15,000 to Boston-based custom slide sandal company ISlide. That money will go entirely to the company’s affected workers. Crowder is an ISlide investor and says he felt compelled to give because he knows workers there are in need. Owner Craig Leipold informed staff of the decision via e-mail on Friday. That includes employees of the Wild, the Xcel Energy Center arena, and their AHL affiliate, the Iowa Wild. Those with salaries above $150,000 are taking a 20% pay cut. The guideline does not pertain to Wild players.Like most teams around the NHL, the Wild also committed to paying game-day arena workers for the six home games that remained on the schedule when the season was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.___ The Atlanta Hawks and State Farm are funding support for a new project to provide 4,000 meals each week to approximately 1,000 healthcare workers treating coronavirus patients at Atlanta hospitals. The project also will allow two Atlanta restaurants to rehire employees who had been laid off due to the pandemic. The Premier League released a statement after talks with the English Football League and Professional Footballers’ Association, saying they also “agreed to work together to arrive at shared solutions.”Last week, restarting the season was pushed back to April 30, and will resume “only when it is safe and conditions allow.”“Further meetings will take place next week with a view to formulating a joint plan to deal with the difficult circumstances facing the leagues, their clubs, players, staff and fans.”Clubs are already feeling the pinch: Second-tier Championship club Birmingham was the first to ask some players to defer 50% of their salaries, while at Championship leader Leeds, the players, coaching staff and senior management volunteered to defer their salaries to try and put off redundancies at their club.___ Olympic officials have confirmed that the 6,200 or so athletes who had already punched their ticket for Tokyo will keep their spots for the rescheduled games next year. It resolves one of the key questions for marathoners, open-water swimmers and hundreds of other athletes whose qualifying process came early in the 2020 sports calendar, before the coronavirus started shutting down sports across the globe. Still to be determined is how the Isports that make up the Olympics will allocate all the spots at the rescheduled games. Typically, the individual sports determine their qualifying procedures for Olympic events.World Athletics president Seb Coe confirmed that all sports have agreed to the IOC’s proposal that all athletes currently qualified for the Olympics will remain qualified for next year. In track, he said that accounts for about half the places. He said the important next step is to develop a fair process for the rest of the athletes, most of whom have seen their qualifying events postponed. RUSADA deputy CEO Margarita Pahnotskaya tells The Associated Press the testing suspension covers a longer period because of the risk of staff being stranded away from home. Tests stopped Friday and will resume on April 6.Pakhnotskaya says the World Anti-Doping Agency has been notified.She says “we studied all the consequences and agreed we should follow the order. And it was agreed with WADA. I wrote them a letter yesterday.”___The Diamond League has postponed three more track meets because of the coronavirus outbreak. The events in Stockholm on May 24, Naples and Rome on May 28, and Rabat, Morocco, on May 31 have all been postponed with no new dates set.The first six events of the year have been called off and only the Shanghai meet has been given a new date. The Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon, on June 7 is now the first scheduled event on the calendar.The Diamond League says “the meeting organizers, the Wanda Diamond League and World Athletics remain committed to delivering a structured extensive season in 2020.”___Spanish soccer club Barcelona says it will reduce the salaries of its players amid the coronavirus pandemic. March 27, 2020 “I’m proud of how he kind of took the initiative to tell people that he had it and that he felt good and that he got online, just continued to ask people to practice social distancing and self-isolation right now,” Stevens said. “It’s just, you know, it’s a really unique, unsettling time for everyone.”— Kyle Hightower reporting from Boston___The LPGA Tour now has two majors that have been rescheduled because of the new coronavirus.With the Olympics postponed until 2021, the Evian Championship in France will be two weeks later on Aug. 6-9. That was supposed to be the week of women’s golf in the Olympics. Barcelona says its executive board has decided to temporarily suspend player contracts. That produces a “proportional reduction of the remuneration provided for in the respective contracts.”The players’ contracts will remain intact during the job suspension.Employers in Spain are allowed to reduce labor costs while guaranteeing that workers will return to their jobs once conditions improve.The club says it has not decided by how much the salaries will be lowered.___ Neither Barcelona nor Atlético are saying how much they would slash salaries. The moves will not impact their players’ contracts.___Top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic, his wife and their foundation are donating 1 million euros (about $1.1 million) to help buy ventilators and other medical equipment for hospitals in Serbia.Djokovic says his foundation’s staff “will be monitoring everything” to get the equipment in place.His wife, Jelena, is the global director of the Novak Djokovic Foundation. She says ventilators needed to help COVID-19 patients range in price from 10,000 to 50,000 euros ($11,000 to $55,000). LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan says “this adjustment makes for easier travel for players and assists us as we look to reschedule previously postponed events.”The women’s British Open is scheduled to be held two weeks after Evian.___The Russian anti-doping agency is suspending all tests for 10 days in response to measures implemented by the government to fight the coronavirus.The move comes after President Vladimir Putin told Russians except those working in essential sectors to stay home next week. ___Lakers superstar Anthony Davis is getting involved with a pair of community initiatives to help Los Angeles-area hospital employees and Staples Center workers.Davis says he is teaming up with Lineage Logistics to match up to $250,000 in donations to an organization providing free meals to health care workers during the coronavirus pandemic. The initiative is a partnership with the World Food Kitchen, led by famed chef José Andrés.Davis and Lineage also announced an initiative to offer jobs with Lineage to Staples Center employees in the upcoming weeks and months while no sports are being played in the Lakers’ home arena, which they share with the Los Angeles Clippers and the NHL’s Kings. Lineage operates refrigerated warehouses in the Los Angeles area and around the world.Davis is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this summer after his first season with the Lakers, but the Anthony Davis Family Foundation is already involved in numerous charitable ventures in the Los Angeles area. The seven-time NBA All-Star is widely expected to re-sign with the Lakers. Moving back the Evian will create a little room on the LPGA schedule when golf resumes. It also makes travel more practical for the players. The new date for the Evian Championship is one week before the Ladies Scottish Open east of Edinburgh, and two weeks before the Women’s British Open at Royal Troon.The LPGA previously rescheduled the ANA Inspiration in Rancho Mirage, California, from April 2-5 until Sept. 10-13.At Augusta National, kids who qualified for this year’s Drive, Chip and Putt will get to compete on the Sunday before next year’s Masters. They will compete in the same age division for which they qualified. That means there won’t be any qualifying for new participants until next year.___Oilers captain Connor McDavid says he elected to stay put in Edmonton rather than risk traveling home to suburban Toronto. ESPN NBA broadcaster Doris Burke, a Curt Gowdy Award recipient by the Basketball Hall of Fame for excellence in her field, has revealed that she tested positive for the coronavirus.Burke made the announcement Friday on an ESPN podcast hosted by NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski.Burke says she started feeling extreme fatigue on March 11, the day the NBA was shut down once it was learned that Utah center Rudy Gobert tested positive. Burke was assigned the Denver-Dallas game on that date for ESPN and fought through her symptoms to work that night.She said she had a three-day period of such deep fatigue that she couldn’t remain out of bed for more than five minutes at a time. She was eventually tested and received the results on Wednesday — eight days after being swabbed.By then, she was feeling better and said on the podcast that she was appreciative of the health-care workers who saw her. “I’m so incredibly thankful to be feeling well,” Burke said.last_img read more

‘Proud’ Lampard eyes first Chelsea win in home debut

Posted on by

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Frank Lampard Chelsea managerLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Frank Lampard admits his first match as Chelsea manager at Stamford Bridge will be a proud occasion, but only a win against Leicester will make Sunday’s homecoming a truly memorable occasion.After successive defeats in his opening two competitive games in charge, Blues legend Lampard is desperate to get his reign up and running with three points this weekend.The 41-year-old, Chelsea’s record goal-scorer, is certain to get a hero’s welcome from his adoring fans despite the frustrating start to the season.A crushing 4-0 defeat at Manchester United in Chelsea’s opening game of the Premier League campaign was followed by Wednesday’s penalty shoot-out loss to Liverpool in the European Super Cup in Istanbul.Both performances featured moments of promise for Chelsea, but Lampard knows he will be judged on results, making it essential to avoid a third consecutive defeat when Leicester visit west London.“I’m proud to manage this club. I’ve been back a few times and had great support,” Lampard said.“It will be an emotional, special day for me but the important thing is trying to get the three points and that’s what I am really worried about.”“There were good parts of the Man United game that got lost in the result but not lost on me — against Liverpool, we played one of the top teams in the world and really matched them.”Lampard has only one season of managerial experience in the second tier with Derby, but his strong connection with Chelsea persuaded owner Roman Abramovich to hire him in the close-season.It was a bold move and Lampard is enduring a baptism of fire after Chelsea sold star playmaker Eden Hazard while operating under a transfer ban that has forced him to turn to the club’s youngsters.– ‘Big challenge’ –Lampard is still getting settled into the job and he acknowledges Leicester, who opened the season with a goalless draw against Wolves, will pose a stern test to his hopes of a maiden win. “It’s a big game for us in front of our home fans for the first time this season,” Lampard said ahead of the game against Brendan Rodgers’ team.“Leicester are very much a team that should be respected for the players and manager they have got and how they have performed in recent years.“I know Brendan well. He’s a fantastic manager. He’s got a great group of players there. They will be well coached so we are going to have a big challenge.“Our mindset is important. It’s been a strange two games. We can’t think the strong performance on Wednesday will replicate itself just because we walk out on that pitch. It’s important we tackle it head on with a real focus.”Lampard was forced to condemn racist abuse of Tammy Abraham on social media after the young Chelsea striker missed the decisive penalty against Liverpool.It remains to be seen if Abraham returns to the team after he started the United game and was then a substitute against Liverpool as Olivier Giroud came in.Lampard also has German defender Antonio Rudiger and Brazilian winger Willian back in contention after the pair returned to training.Rodgers, who worked in Chelsea’s backroom staff during Lampard’s playing career, believes the inexperienced manager will prove a success in the long-term.“In the games I have seen, Chelsea have played with a good tempo and intensity,” Rodgers said.“Frank understands the importance of giving those young players a chance, but he also knows he has to win matches and get results, and I believe he will do well there.”last_img read more

Fair Haven in No Rush to Crush Brush Processing

Posted on by

first_imgSpitz called the processing center a “missed opportunity,” and a prime location for a dog park, or a community garden. “It is not an appropriate location any longer,” Spitz said. “The neighborhood has changed. It’s not fair to our lives. It’s not fair to our health.” “I don’t see any way to relocate the facility in the borough, so the only other choice would be to close it down,” Mayor Ben Lucarelli said. “Then we’re left with handling the disposable brush in a proper and environmentally conscious way.” Since it’s been a mutually beneficial partnership for both parties, Spitz wondered if the borough could pursue a similar interlocal agreement to take brush processing outside the municipal border. Lucarelli said closing the facility would probably mean adding two more employees to the Department of Public Works and purchasing a $400,000 rear loader vehicle, like a garbage truck. Additional transportation costs would also come into play. To avoid transport during peak school hours, early morning drop-off and afternoon pickup, the grinding can begin as early as 7 a.m. Fair Haven Police Chief Joseph McGovern told residents Monday the operation’s early start time is protected by ordinance. “You’re talking about adding millions of dollars to the budget in order to accomplish this,” Lucarelli said. In an interview, borough administrator Teresa Casagrande said the location of the site – between William Street and several baseball fields, basketball courts and a soccer pitch at Fair Haven Fields – is a pre-existing condition of the neighborhood that dates back to the 1950s. In return, maintenance of Fair Haven parks and municipal grounds, as well as street-sweeping and storm-water catch-basin cleaning falls under the purview of Rumson. Fair Haven and Rumson entered into a shared service agreement in April 2012, trading key maintenance services to collectively cut costs. Lucarelli said it’s something he has explored, but the borough’s Fair Haven Fields Natural Area Advisory Committee quickly squashed. Under the terms, Fair Haven handles the collection and processing of both boroughs’ brush, as well as offering engineering services from in-house professionals for small jobs. FAIR HAVEN – JenniferSpitz said the decorativemolding is rattling off thewalls of her home and anearby brush processingoperation is to blame. Resident Bob Donnelly questioned whether the site could be relocated deeper within the 73-acre Fair Haven Fields tract, possibly in the natural area. Spitz resides on William Street, in a neighborhood that backs up to a wooded area of Fair Haven Fields. At Monday’s borough council meeting she played a 45-second video filmed from the deck in her backyard. Sptiz said twice a year, for days and sometimes two to three weeks at a time, her home shakes, the backyard is unusable and her kids are unable to ride their bikes to school because of the operation. “We’ve worked to makethis as efficient a processas we can. We’ve gottenthe collection down to sixmonths out of the year,when it used to be nine.And now we only processtwice a year and try to havethe operation completed inless than a week, weatherpending,” Casagrande said,noting the job is completedbefore Fair Haven Day andin the late fall. The process includes 18-wheeler trucks transporting brush collected from Fair Haven and Rumson to the facility before it’s loaded into an industrial grinder. “They are quite defensive of that area and want to keep it natural. So I don’t see Fair Haven Fields as a viable option. Hypothetically, if we got approval of that committee, then we’d have to get approval from the county, followed by the state. And from what I understand that’s exceedingly difficult,” Lucarelli said. Casagrande told residents a cooperative county facility for peninsula towns at Fort Monmouth was another option investigated by the mayor, but “Fort Monmouth turned it down.” “I can’t accept ‘no’ any longer,” Sptiz said in a post-meeting interview. “I’m asking (the council) to represent us and find a better way to do this, whether that’s a partnership with another town or with the county. I’d like their help in figuring that out. I know they’re volunteers, which is why I’m willing to volunteer and do the legwork. I just need some direction. I’m pleading with them to help.” It wasn’t the woodland setting that was the focal point, but rather the video’s soundtrack, a constant chorus of industrial buzzing and grinding coming from beyond the trees at the borough’s designated processing site. The next Fair HavenFields Advisory CommitteeMeeting is scheduled forJuly 17.last_img read more
