Published brochure for boaters regarding the payment of sojourn tax in 2018

first_imgThe Ministry of Tourism has prepared a short information brochure for boaters in Croatian, English, German, French, Italian and Polish, regarding the payment of sojourn tax.The brochure contains information on the obligations and possibilities of sailors regarding the payment of the sojourn tax and a table with the amounts of sojourn tax fees. The brochure will be distributed to marinas, port authorities and tourist boards throughout the coast.We remind you that the Ministry of Tourism significantly raised the sojourn tax for boaters in August last year. The drastic increase in the sojourn tax for owners or users of vessels has brought five to six times higher prices of taxes than before, depending on the category of the vessel and the time period for which the tax is paid.For example, the owner of a yacht 9 to 12 meters long has so far had to pay an annual fee of about 150 euros, and according to the new Regulation on determining the amount of sojourn tax for 2018, the price will be about 775 euros, and for yachts 12 to 15 meters annual the fee jumped from 176 euros to 1.024 euros. Also, the Office abolished the payment of an annual lump sum for the use of marinas, which has been the normal practice so far.What is certain is that vessels are movable property, and if sailors are dissatisfied, they can easily move the vessel to another country. The negative consequences are already being felt in all marinas, and will only be felt next year. At the end of the season, the line will be drawn, and I wonder if anyone will respond if there is a rapid decline?Side dish: Boat brochure 2018last_img read more

International Day for Disaster Reduction observed in Dominica

first_imgLocalNews International Day for Disaster Reduction observed in Dominica by: – October 13, 2011 Tweet Share 61 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! Share Flooding in Massacre due to heavy rainfall duing passage of Tropical Storm Ophelia.By resolution 64/200 dated December 21, 2009 the United Nations General Assembly designated October 13th (every year) as the date to commemorate “International Day for Disaster Reduction”. This particular resolution superseded resolution 44/236 which recognized the second Wednesday in October as “international day for natural disaster reduction”.The change in the resolution requires states to bring into sharper focus and to give more significance to disaster risk reduction as a strategy that will inform sustainable development especially in small and vulnerable developing states like ours.This year’s campaign is to “step up disaster risk reduction”, while the theme is “making children and young people partners for disaster risk reduction”.It is instructive to note that approximately 66.5 million children are affected annually by disasters caused by man-made and natural events/hazards. Children and young people find it difficult to cope with unexpected and painful interruptions and trauma in their lives. Dominica has had numerous events during the recent past with many of the victims being children. Given our geographical position and landscape coupled with the issues of climate change there is every reason to expect that the island, like the other islands in the region and by extension the world, will continue to be vulnerable to natural and manmade events. According to the UN General Secretary in an address to mark this day “vulnerability to disaster is growing faster than resilience” The general secretary’s statement insists that building resilience is where the focus needs to be. The issues of climate change and global warning together with natural events such as hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes and man-made hazards adds to our vulnerability. The issue then becomes, how as a people do we build such resilience against such events? We therefore adopt the precept of disaster risk reduction. We must adopt in our everyday lifestyle, in our cooperate and national development processes a culture of disaster risk reduction. The office of disaster management continues to focus on the disaster management cycle which includes planning, preparing, mitigating, geared at reducing our vulnerability and risk. The citizenry including the children and young people are therefore encouraged to participate in the processes of disaster risk reduction management and decision making undertaken by the office of disaster management and other associate organizations. Disaster events affect people in all spheres of life and therefore we have a responsibility to ourselves, and to our country to be part of the resilience effort. As we recognize the international day for disaster reduction, the office of disaster management think it fitting to launch the official webpage; This webpage is design to reach all ages of society and is designed to be very interactive. The Office of Disaster Managment looks forward to your feedback and let today –international day for disaster reduction, be a part of our everyday life in an effort to reduce disasters.The Office of Disaster Managment looks forward to your feedback and let today –international day for disaster reduction, be a part of our everyday life as we continue in our efforts to reduce disasters.Press ReleaseOffice of Diaster Managementlast_img read more

Plans on hold for Annie Power after the brilliant mare suffers a setback

first_img However, owner Rich Ricci says that race is now off the agenda, with a decision on whether she will be aimed at the World Hurdle or the Mares’ Hurdle at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival also undecided at this stage. He said: “She is fine. She has just had a niggling setback and she will probably not run until Cheltenham. “We won’t take any chances with her as she is too valuable and is my pet. We will do the right thing by her. “She will be back in work at the end of December then we will step her back up and get her ready for Cheltenham. “We will make a decision which race she goes for in February as there is no rush.” Annie Power is unlikely to return to action before the Cheltenham Festival after suffering a setback. The Willie Mullins-trained seven-year-old has won 12 of 14 racecourse outings with her only defeats coming when second to More Of That in the 2014 World Hurdle and when crashing out at the last with the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle at her mercy at this year’s Festival. Annie Power bounced back from that fall with a wide-margin Punchestown win back in May and she had been in the frame to return in the Hatton’s Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse later this month. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Trojans not daunted by packed weekend schedule

first_imgIf it seemed like the USC men’s water polo team couldn’t fit much more into its weekends, then think again.The Trojans could potentially play six games this weekend, as they face a Friday doubleheader against No. 15 Princeton and Golden West College, and the SoCal Tournament on Saturday and Sunday. This marks the fourth weekend in a row in which USC has had at least two games scheduled, but this weekend promises to be the biggest of them all.Familiar foe · Senior driver Justin Rappel scored key goals in the USC men’s water polo team’s 11-4 win against Princeton in last season’s match. – Katelynn Whitaker | Daily Trojan“Before we start the season, [coach Jovan Vavic] puts us through one of the most grueling hell months among any of the sports on the campus,” senior two-meter Jordan Thompson said. “Six games [in three days] is a first — it’s a challenge — but we’ll face it and bite the bullet.”The Trojans will return to McDonald’s Swim Stadium for just the second time this season, squaring off first against a formidable Princeton team that started the year ranked in the top 10, but has since dropped off after going 7-4. The Tigers have been battle-tested so far in 2009, facing then-No. 4 UCLA, No. 16 Santa Clara, No. 19 Brown and No. 20 Johns Hopkins in their first five games. USC and Princeton played each other for the first time last season with the Trojans coming out on top 11-4, behind goals from junior driver Devon Borisoff and senior driver Justin Rappel.“[Princeton] has always had a crafty team, and our coaches prepare us to expect the unexpected,” Thompson said.The latter match of the day is USC’s second scrimmage in just as many weeks, as the Trojans face Golden West, a team often considered to be one of the premier community college water polo teams in the nation. The Rustlers won the 2008 California state water polo championship in their division, and have won 19 titles since beginning play in 1966.On Saturday, the Trojans will travel to Irvine for the SoCal Tournament, a two-day event that is USC’s third tournament of the season. The Trojans won the event last year and showed their sheer dominance in doing so, scoring 49 goals in four games while holding their opponents to a combined score of only 19. USC beat Stanford 8-7 in the final, scoring on a game-winning shot in overtime to secure the championship title.USC will face No. 17 Bucknell in the first game of the tournament, and then play either UC Davis or UC Santa Barbara depending on the result. USC is 3-0 all time against Bucknell, but the two teams have not played since 2004. The Bison are 11-6 this season, and had a four-game winning streak before losing to No. 15 Princeton. But they responded by beating No. 18 Navy,“Because we lost a game early in the season, this tournament holds much more [significance] than any other tournament we’ve played this season,” Thompson said. “It’s absolutely vital that we go in and set the tone early.”If the Trojans can advance, the odds are certainly in their favor to win in the second round; USC has never lost in 14 games to Davis, and is 53-12-2 all-time against Santa Barbara. But with the packed schedule in front of them, getting through the weekend will be an additional challenge in and of itself.last_img read more

Dodgers can’t put away Phillies, lose NL West lead

first_imgLOS ANGELES >> Scott Kazmir pitched one of his best games of the season.The weakest link in the Dodgers’ lineup, Josh Reddick, collected a pair of hits.With a one-run lead and nine outs to go, the Dodgers’ vaunted bullpen took over. All the stars were aligned and yet the Dodgers still lost Wednesday afternoon, 6-2 to the Philadelphia Phillies. After the game, Roberts reiterated that he liked the matchups between the left-handed Dayton and the right-handed swinging Tyler Goeddel and Galvis, a switch-hitter.“Grant’s been throwing the heck out of the baseball,” Roberts said.But when catcher Yasmani Grandal set up high and outside, Dayton’s 2-2 pitch was inside and belt-high. Galvis crushed a 377-foot fly ball over the left field fence. After three scoreless and hitless outings to begin his career, Dayton finally had an ERA.Things only got worse from there for the Dodgers, who stranded one runner in the seventh, two in the eighth and two more in the ninth.Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen told Roberts before the game that he wanted to get some work in. The manager obliged with the Dodgers trailing 3-2 in the ninth inning.Jansen promptly loaded the bases on a walk, a single and an intentional walk with first base open. Pinch hitter Ryan Howard then clubbed a double down the left field line, scoring all three runners. It was only the second time this season Roberts used Jansen in a game the Dodgers were losing. Jansen allowed a run the first time, too.“In that situation to get him work, and then also to keep (the Phillies) within one, I felt good about it,” Roberts said.Reddick went 2-for-5 in his first game as the Dodgers’ No. 2 hitter. His line drive to right field in the first inning landed a few feet shy of a home run. Reddick scored from second base when Adrian Gonzalez hit a ball off first base umpire Alan Porter, recorded as an RBI double.Reddick also ran into the final out of the sixth inning when he was caught in a rundown between third base and home plate. With Corey Seager on first base, Roberts called for a double steal, something Reddick hadn’t done much — if ever — while spending his entire career in the American League before last week.“It’s been a long time since I’ve had an attempt at one of those,” Reddick said. “It was kind of uncomfortable for me, but I’ve got to make an adjustment and be better at that. Once I see him throw the ball to second, I’ve got to go. It’s a matter of learning, adapting and adjusting to that kind of play. I’ll get my work in on it. I won’t make that mistake again.”Howie Kendrick scored the Dodgers’ other run, on an RBI single by Rob Segedin in the seventh inning.Phillies starter Jeremy Hellickson had retired 13 consecutive batters when he was removed after five innings because of tightness in his back.“He kind of figured it out, changed it up, started going more off-speed, stuff like that,” Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager said of Hellickson. “He kept us off-balance pretty much.”The Dodgers and the Giants, who finished off their first series win since the All-Star break Wednesday, could be teetering atop the division for a while.“You’ve just got to keep winning series and it’ll handle itself,” Seager said.The Dodgers took two of three from the rebuilding Phillies. They’ll enjoy an off-day Thursday before hosting the Pittsburgh Pirates for three games beginning Friday. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Needing a win to keep pace with the San Francisco Giants, the Dodgers fell a game behind in the National League West standings after spending less than 24 hours tied for first place.Freddy Galvis’ three-run home run off Grant Dayton in the seventh inning gave Philadelphia the lead for good.“It was a fastball I didn’t execute,” Dayton said. “He took advantage of it, put a good swing on it, and what am I going to say? He got me.”Kazmir (9-6) allowed two runs in suffering his third loss in as many starts, but that’s a bit deceiving. The Phillies advanced only one runner past second base for the first six innings. When Kazmir exited in the seventh, the Dodgers led 1-0.But the Phillies were threatening. Carlos Ruiz singled and Jimmy Paredes drew a walk on Kazmir’s 100th and final pitch. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts summoned Dayton to face the Phillies’ 7-8-9 hitters.last_img read more
