The island of Pag as a leader in our tourism. The key word is synergy and proactivity

first_imgAuthors of photos: Tourist agency Perla Pag, Heart Zone – Nordic walking club and association Volim Vlašići (Pedal on Pag). “After three successful active weekends on the island of Pag, we are looking forward to enabling active tourists to get to know the southern part of the island of Pag this coming weekend. We have two attractive disciplines, mountain biking on Saturday, 1.8. in the town of Pag and a day later, .2.8. Nordic walking in Vlašići. In both disciplines you will be able to get to know the most beautiful things that the southern part of the island of Pag has to offer. “, Said Berislav Sokač from Run Croatia. The efforts of the participants will be rewarded with an incredibly impressive view of the town of Pag, the fascinating salt fields, Velebit and the Velebit Channel. On Sunday, August 2, fans of the increasingly popular Nordic walking will have the opportunity to set off on an unusual and interesting trail “Sundial” in Vlašići. It is in the most difficult moments for our tourism that the island of Pag has proven to be a leader in our tourism through synergy and proactivity, despite all the aggravating frameworks. At the very least, the same process is expected from other islands, as the island is one destination and one brand. Of course every start is difficult, there is still a lot of work to complete the whole story, but the synergy of all tourist boards goes further and that is the best news. Many more projects are planned, and I invite everyone to support this great positive example of synergy and proactivity on the island of Pag. It is possible, it only takes will. It would be interesting to see that the CNTB seriously supports this project. At the very least, it is strange that the CNTB did not score on this example and with its support showed in which direction our tourism must go. This is a unique example in our tourism, and they deserve all the support. Personally, if I were the director of the CNTB, I would come to one of the PAG SUMMER OUTDOOR WEEKEND programs and thus send a strong message to everyone in tourism that synergy is imperative. Especially in today’s context, where support for such projects is more than needed. But that’s just my loud thinking. “Join us on one of the most impressive trails of our lunar island. Surrounded by blue skies, white rocks and blue sea, you will enjoy the freedom of existence and movement in the southernmost part of the island. The view from the Sundial on Velebit, the Pag Bridge, the Bay of Ljubac, the islet of Sikavac and the green peaks of the island of Ugljan in the distance will be long in your mind. The trail leads from Vlašić over the hill to the macadam road to the Sundial, which was made in ancient times by a lover of the sun, the sea and the karst of Pag. We will walk eight kilometers. Upon our return, we will refresh ourselves with the Pag snack. At the beginning, you will get short instructions for effective Nordic walking”, Stated the host Silvija Zoković and invited all Nordic walking fans to treat themselves to an unforgettable morning of this year’s summer vacation under expert guidance.   / / / SYNERGY OF TOURIST BOARDS IN ACTION, NOT ONLY ON PAPER. BRAVO FOR TOURIST BOARDS OF THE ISLAND OF PAG “The island of Pag is becoming a destination of a unique tourist offer, from the first shots on the Pag bridge to the northernmost point on the point Luna. We have summed up all the beauties of our longest Adriatic island in this promotional film with which we want to show how much we love our island of Pag and we want a warm year-round welcome to tourists who come to us. We travel as tourists to connect as friends or family with each other, but also with our hosts, new places and beautiful nature, cultural heritage, unforgettable events and island gastronomy. No man is an island for himself, you find your own on the island of Pag” reports from the tourist boards of the island of Pag. The promotional film was made in cooperation and organization of the Tourist Boards of the island of Pag: Novalja Tourist Board, Pag Tourist Board, Kolan Tourist Board, Povljana Tourist Board, Stara Novalja Tourist Board or organized by all tourist boards of the island of Pag and that is the main story. Which is another continuation of the synergy and cooperation signed Agreement on project association of local tourist boards on the island of Pag. Run Croatia and the Kissa Association are in charge of designing, developing and implementing the concept of these attractive events in cooperation with the island’s tourist boards.  On the first day of August, mountain biking enthusiasts set off on a trail with the romantic name “Embrace of stone and wind” that will enjoy the silence of nature and the many unusual and attractive areas shaped by the famous Pag bora. At the very top of Kiršin (263 m) they will be greeted by a field of the only island wind farms in Croatia as a witness to the harmonious combination of past and future. center_img This weekend he is still active on the island of Pag That the signed agreement on the project to the association is not just a letter on paper, the best proof is this year’s excellent new project Pag Outdoor Summer Weekend i.e. the concept of active weeks to be held with licensed and experienced trainers in various forms of active tourism. Bravo for the island of Pag. The island of Pag as a leader in our tourism This weekend continues PAG SUMMER OUTDOOR WEEKEND for all lovers of active tourism and enjoying the beautiful scenery of the lunar island.

Cuban posting system, two-way players top baseball’s storylines to watch in 2019

first_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error This is, of course, a dramatic departure from the norm of the last 20 years. The 400-home run club included 29 members in 1999. Today it’s up to 55 – but only two of those players are active.It’s been argued that performance-enhancing drug use cheapened the value of traditional hitting milestones. Now that most of the PED era’s peak performers have retired, it’s a good time to survey the leaderboard landscape again. It hasn’t looked like this in a while. Dodgers lose a wild game to the Giants in 11 innings Dodgers’ Will Smith: ‘I feel like it’s been five years’ since his 2019 debut Harvard-Westlake alum Lucas Giolito throws no-hitter for White Sox center_img The joint agreement announced Dec. 19 by MLB, the MLB Players’ Association, and the Cuban Baseball Federation teemed with optimism. Its proclamation was simple: a new posting system, similar to that between MLB and Japan, which would allow players to leave Cuba for the United States within a set of agreed-upon rules. Such a system could potentially end the dangerous practice of smuggling players, their friends, and family members off the island.But was the optimism premature?If the agreed-to parameters did not involve the Cuban and American governments, the answer would be no. Reuters cited an MLB official who claimed that the Office of Foreign Assets Control determined teams could transfer money to the Cuban Baseball Federation because it isn’t an agency of the communist government.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.However, that determination was made during the Barack Obama administration. Now, OFAC could simply change its mind, according to subsequent reports. MLB is already operating without competition under an antitrust agreement. Its relationship with the federal government is further entwined in a grand jury investigation, first reported by Sports Illustrated, into allegations of corruption tied to the recruitment of Cuban players by MLB teams. The Dodgers “figure most prominently” in the allegations, according to SI.It’s a complicated situation that could turn on a whim – if the federal government ever goes back to work, of course. Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros 2. Two-way playersShohei Ohtani won’t pitch in 2019, but Matt Davidson, Kaleb Cowart and others might.The Mariners recently acquired Cowart, a career infielder with the Angels, and invited him to spring training as a pitcher-slash-infielder. Matt Davidson was non-tendered after hitting 20 home runs for the Chicago White Sox in 2018. The Yucaipa native also retired nine of the 11 batters he faced as a pitcher, and he reportedly wants to keep pitching in 2019. Throw in Rays prospect Brendan McKay and the wave of two-way talents begins to resemble a trend.If Ohtani’s rookie season is a harbinger, the onus is not simply on these players to prove full-time pitching and hitting can coexist in one player’s repertoire. The Angels handled Ohtani with great care from the outset of spring training. His schedule was heavily regimented, his press conferences limited. That his right UCL ultimately caved to pressure likely said more about his usage in Japan – though another Tommy John surgery could make teams wary of turning two-way players into a trend.3. GamblingGaming magnate MGM Resorts promised “a new one-of-a-kind fan experience for baseball fans” when it announced its landmark partnership with MLB in November. We’re still waiting for the important details about what that experience entails.Count us surprised if MLB and MGM roll out more than a handful of bells and whistles in the first year after the Supreme Court relaxed restrictions on gambling in sports. Baseball is the most traditional of the American pastimes, if not the most popular. As is usually the case, the league must strike a delicate balance between its past and its future that invites new fans without alienating its base.4. “Openers”If starters routinely pitch one or two innings in 2019, we can all point to May 19 and 20 of last year as a turning point in baseball history. That’s when the Tampa Bay Rays started veteran reliever Sergio Romo on back-to-back days against the Angels.The idea of removing a starting pitcher in the second or third inning by design is not new. However, no major league regularly practiced it until Rays manager Kevin Cash used the strategy when his five-man rotation was depleted by injuries. The Rays won 90 games, the A’s used an opener (Liam Hendriks) in the American League wild-card game, and the Brewers used one – actually three – in the NLCS.Newly appointed Giants general manager Farhan Zaidi said he would embrace the “opener” strategy in 2019. Perhaps other teams will follow suit.5. The changing shape of free agencyOne agent to several unsigned free agents recently hatched an idea: institute a second trade deadline, in December, as a means to speeding up another slow offseason. Once again, everything old is new again.A trade deadline was observed at the Winter Meetings until 1984. Immediately, the meetings lost their urgency. They only carried the convenience of bringing executives and agents into the same hotel for four days in December. That felt like incentive enough to make major deals until last year, when several veteran free agents (J.D. Martinez, Yu Darvish, Eric Hosmer, Jake Arrieta) did not sign contracts until February. Others (Greg Holland, Jose Bautista, Matt Holliday) did not sign until after the regular season began.The pattern is repeating itself. Bryce Harper and Manny Machado remain unsigned, to say nothing of the large “middle class” of free agents. Considering the rancor among players and agents, a second trade deadline seems like a modest proposal. Upheaving a system that grants free agency to players after six years of service time isn’t out of the question for baseball’s next decade.6. Minor league team namesThis is a silly one, but even Super Baseball 2020 might blush at the idea of the “New Orleans Baby Cakes.”Minor league team names have never looked more ridiculous on a baseball jersey. The Rocket City Trash Pandas will begin play in Madison, Ala., in 2020. Pity the unlucky player who also wears the uniform of the Rocky Mountain Vibes or the Amarillo Sod Poodles.We’re left to wonder: when (and how) does this end? Hopefully not with Trouble in River City.7. Home run milestonesThe list of active home run leaders hasn’t looked like this in a while. Albert Pujols sits comfortably in first place with 633. A steep dropoff follows: Miguel Cabrera is next with 465, followed by Edwin Encarnacion with 380. The top 10 players on the list are all 35 or older. Unless Mike Trout hits 60 home runs this year – never say never – only Giancarlo Stanton will enter the 2020s with 300 home runs by the age of 30.Related Articles A minor baseball video game title, “Super Baseball 2020,” was released in North America in 1993. Its vision for the future of the sport was more ambitious than its low-res graphics. You could play as a man, a woman or a robot. Every game took place at the same indoor facility, Cyber Egg Stadium. A clock ticked away in the upper-left corner of the screen. Home runs only counted if they were hit to center field. Robot umpires governed with infallible judgment.The next 363 days will point the way toward baseball as it will actually be played in 2020. That might not be enough lead time for robots and women to compete alongside men in Major League Baseball, but perhaps the league will get around to enforcing its existing pitch clock rules.That one didn’t make the cut for the top storylines to watch in baseball this year. Here they are, in order of intrigue.1. Cubalast_img read more
