* The project is co-financed within the Interreg IPA CBC Cross-border Cooperation Program Croatia-Serbia 2014-2020. Tin Horvatin, Project participant and lecturer, was in charge of creating a recreational route and said that the selection was difficult because in the whole area there are other sites that are top, especially in Brod-Posavina County, however, do not work all the time and for their opening clients need notice, which does not fit into this type of somewhat spontaneous tour. “As the best of the locations, I would single out Baranja’s Zlatna greda and Garčin Ranch Ramarin because of the excellent and diverse facilities they offer. Zlatna greda proved to be an attractive space, it is active tourism and entertainment. We visited all these locations and informed the owners how they would find themselves on that ‘map’ or route. Some owners were suspicious, it was not clear to them that it was a big advertisement. Our problem is that service providers and manufacturers rarely perform together, they want to brand their product exclusively, and that is impossible because they are too small. With this project we wanted to encourage them to refer tourists to each other to present together their part of the country as the best and as one rich whole that offers a lot. It should become normal to send a guest who has used your services, for example, to a neighbor who offers excellent wines. That is what we lack and without which tourism designed in this way cannot succeed ” said Horvatin. “I mostly referred to social networks as a popular and modern tool today. It is also extremely important to know the generation we are addressing; these are the ‘millennials’ and ‘z’ generations today who are currently the biggest visitors to the restaurant. In today’s lecture, I addressed primarily caterers to advise them on how to use social media to their advantage as a free tool. The process of presenting a dish is long; involves designing and realizing recipes, photographing and filming. It seems simple to many, but they also need culinary and photographic ambitions. ” said Ena Kokanović, a well-known food blogger who also gave lectures on the topic. The first step was to make cross-border tourism studies that resulted in defined key destinations, we call them “points”, on the newly formed gastro, eco and recreational tourist routes. Each route consists of 20 points, while the gastronomic route also includes the city markets of Eastern Croatia. Thus, it was logical to connect these two border regions, Slavonia and Vojvodina. By the way, with various projects co-financed by EU funds, it often happens that everything is done just to be done and to meet the criteria, but the performance and quality of the project is very poor, especially outdoors and in the field. And ultimately it is a question of its sustainability and what remains after the project. In this case, the implementation of the project was at a high level, from promotional materials, education, conferences to the involvement of professionals, those who live tourism day by day in the field, and who worked on the study of three studies within the project – Eco , Guest and Recreational tour. (You can see the studies here: HR_Eco study, HR_Gastro studio,HR_Recreational study), and for which three promotional videos were recorded). Urban tourism: development of destination continental tourism” The focus on the gastronomic offer is of course based exclusively on the indigenous dishes represented in this project, and each of the hotels or restaurants has created its own menu to present itself with traditional dishes. Požega-Slavonia County also played a big role in this project, taking advantage of its surroundings and creating an excellent logo for its ‘hills and valleys’ “. We are one of the counties covered by this project. In the lecture, I focused on destination marketing. What we have done in Požega in the last year and a half is the creation of a new visual identity. We started ‘from below’. We’ve been in the old story for a long time, and we needed a new one that would attract new visitors. Our umbrella slogan is ‘Hills and valleys’ which we offer to visitors, but not as a false promise but as something that makes the Požega region unique. I always emphasize that no one is special, but we are all equal. When guests come, they do not know about the counties, they know about the Slavonian region. For us, Slavonia, Baranja and Srijem are one story, and ‘hills and valleys’ are different and represent Požega-Slavonia County with its ring of five mountains: Psunj, Papuk, Dilje, Krndija and Požega Mountain. Požega-Slavonia County ‘breaks’ the story that Slavonia is exclusively flat. Gastronomy tailored to modern man, modern culture and active tourism, are three elements that attract guests. The three major routes in the six package deals of this project are stories of which the Požega-Slavonia County is a part. It is important to understand that we are all one story. That’s how the guest will recognize us. Unification does not diminish the importance of individual destinations, but the guest gets to know them more thoroughly after we attract him through joint promotion. ” she ordered Silvija Podoljak, director of the Tourist Board of the City of Požega. As part of the project, a calendar of all events was made, e-commerce or e-shop for members of the two clusters involved in the project, as well as e-Procurement, which offers restaurants to express the need for local food through the platform. Great rounded story. As part of the project, educational lectures were held at the Restaurant “Black Pig” in Čepin, under the common name “Urban tourism: development of destination continental tourism” As a conclusion of this project, it is a pity that not all similar projects were done at such a high level and performance, because after this project there will be quality promotional materials, web platform, e-commerce, maps with all subjects, brochures… ultimately almost a complete tourist product. for all travel agencies as well as tourists, which connects Slavonia and Vojvodina into one interesting gastro, eco and recreational or active tourist product. “This is a project with a total value of 368.110,98 euros, and the grant amounts to 312.894,32 euros from the Interreg IPA CBC Cross-border Cooperation Program Croatia-Serbia. Our partners in the project are the Tourist Cluster Slavonska košica from Slavonski Brod, then the Regional Development Agency Panonreg from Subotica and the Tourist Cluster Fund of the microregion Subotica Palić, and the project was implemented in Brod-Posavina, Osijek-Baranja, Požega-Slavonia and Vukovar-Srijem County on the Croatian side and in the North Bačka district in Vojvodina and Serbia, respectively. This is also the last project activity after 24 months of project implementation, which we started by investigating resources in the cross-border area, which we then connected to key destinations and points and made three tourist routes: gastro, eco and recreational. I would like to point out the e-Cluster platform, which was established as a regional base of tourist offer and providers, and which offers members and members of the two clusters involved in the project and other providers of catering and tourist content and producers of local products through e-Shop. There is also e-Procurement which offers restaurants to express the need for local food through the platform. In this way, local producers are included in the supply chain, which not only increases the placement of their products but is also important for regional cooperation. Packages that are offered by travel agencies have also been made, and the largest package is the Pannonian CircleShe told SBplus Anita Krnjić from the Development Agency of the City of Slavonski Brod. The aim of the project was to connect these two neighboring regions in a tourist package through a tourist package through the gastro, eco and recreational offer of Eastern Croatia and Northern Bačka, and thus closer to the guests and go beyond the standard tourist offers. The holder of this large project is the Development Agency of the City of Slavonski Brod, which prepared the project. It is generally known that tourism knows no borders, and in accordance with today’s tourist trends, where tourists want to see and experience as much as possible in the shortest possible time, and thus visit more cities, regions, countries. Various tourist packages are often made, with which tourists visit a couple of neighboring countries in 7-10 days, as is the case in Croatia and our region. Again, the lectures were not just to be done, but brought together excellent lecturers from practice, who talked about Storytelling with the help of new technologies, Urban drinks of new generations (gin, craft beers), How to present the restaurant to a new generation of guests te on Destination Marketing. The conference gathered over 60 participants from the tourism industry, which is more than excellent for Slavonia. And that the lecturers transferred their knowledge with their experience and examples, and they didn’t just read from the presentation and just did it. The fact that all participants stayed until the last lecture, which is a rarity, because in practice at least a third of the participants left after the break, speaks of the excellent concept in choosing the topics as well as the lecturer. So, for example, lately tourists from the Scandinavian countries come by plane to Zagreb, and go to Slavonia, and visit Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, as well as tours from Dubrovnik and Dalmatia that go to Mostar, Sarajevo, Novi Sad, Belgrade, etc.… Tourists they do not see or be interested in boundaries, but only in experiences. As part of the project EXtraordinary PLease of our REgion – Common gastro, eco and recreation routes of Croatia and Serbia “, abbreviated EXPLORE CRO-SRB, implemented by the Development Agency of the City of Slavonski Brod in cooperation with partners Tourist Cluster” Slavonian Basket “, Regional Development Agency Panonreg from Subotica & The Tourist Cluster of the Subotica Microregion Palić, Slavonia and Vojvodina merged with an excellent tourist project. One of the most famous Croatian food bloggers – Ena Kokanović and Darko Kontin – spoke about food as an extremely important segment of any tourism. With the completion of the project, it remains for the project to come to life on the market because it is certainly an attractive, interesting and complete tourist package. Find out all the information about the tourist connection between Slavonia and Vojvodina HERE “I participated in the shooting of promotional videos for this project. Associations to Slavonia are a lot of good food for me. It has a lot to show, but so far it has not been sufficiently promoted in terms of tourism as other parts of Croatia, so I am extremely glad to be a part of this project. Food is a key part of the tourist offer of any place. It is something that every tourist turns to at the beginning and end of each day. If it is good enough, I think that may be the reason why tourists will return. Social media is visual and perfect for presenting food, although it does not transmit flavors and odors. Still, I can really attract people. ” he told SBplus Darko Kontin, a famous Croatian food blogger who also writes for gastro.hr.
A group of black players in MLS have united to form the Black Players Coalition of MLS, the newly-founded organization announced on Friday.The organization’s announcement coincides with Juneteenth, which commemorates the day on which Union forces in Texas delivered the news of the Emancipation Proclamation to the region, freeing the last group of slaves in the United States. It also comes amid ongoing protests and unrest across the world, with the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis sparking wider discussions about the issues of race and police brutality in society.With the formation of the organization, the Black Players Coalition will look to “address the racial inequalities in our league, stand with all those fighting racism in the world of soccer, and positively impact black communities across the United States and Canada.”Toronto FC’s Justin Morrow has been named the organization’s executive director, with Philadelphia Union defender Ray Gaddis, Chicago Fire forward C.J.

The move comes as at least 158 House Democrats have backed a possible impeachment inquiry in connection to allegations by a whistleblower that President Trump pressed the president of Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, in a phone call.Suspicion surrounds Trump due to his actions around that time.Trump reportedly asked his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, to put a hold on millions in military aid to Ukraine roughly one week before the call.Trump later released the military aide after the whistleblower made his complaint, according to reports.The white blower’s complaint has created major controversy for Trump, who is adamantly denying the allegations.Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff announced via Twitter that the whistleblower’s attorney had informed the committee that he would like to testify.We have been informed by the whistleblower’s counsel that their client would like to speak to our committee and has requested guidance from the Acting DNI as to how to do so.We‘re in touch with counsel and look forward to the whistleblower’s testimony as soon as this week.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) September 24, 2019 Rep.

Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Well, we technologists pretty much have that Internets thing solved. That series of tubes works pretty well. So well in fact that the carriers are busying themselves trying to bring Gigabit to everybody, though nobody really knows what they’re going to do with it (but we all want to be in one of those special cities). I think we got bored. And you know what happens when a bunch of technologists gets bored, we look for another hard problem to solve.Enter IoT, the Internet of Things. We realized that the Internet, with all of its virtual technology and its climate-controlled data centers, still hadn’t conquered what really matters to all of us – the world we interact with every day – the real world. Now, there’s a set of challenges that’ll keep us technologists engaged for at least another decade.I suggest the primary real-world challenge with the Internet of Things isn’t rooted in inter-networking at all, but with how powering the Things affects inter-networking and software programming, specifically in wireless situations.What do batteries have to do with IoT?We see powering in the world of Consumer IoT often in the form of rechargeable batteries. The iPhone charges for a few hours a day and is able to communicate via TCP/IP protocols over Cellular and Wi-Fi. That doesn’t seem to have changed the networking or software programming approaches too drastically. The Fitbit charges for a few minutes a day and communicates via Bluetooth with another mobile device. There we see a more drastic impact on the networking and software programming models.Daniel Barnes, Director of Product Management, SynapseBut what if I told you the battery had to last for one month without recharge or replacement? How about six months, two years, five years? Well, that’s insane, who would demand a wearable that lasted that long without a recharge?Consider these very real Industrial IoT applications: monitoring field and pest conditions in almond orchards, monitoring cows for sickness, a factory air compressor retrofit for predictive maintenance, over-the-top services such as crane monitoring, motor performance monitoring, or fire extinguisher monitoring. In each of these cases, the Thing is placed into the environment with the expectation of lasting longer than six months (some cases as long as five years) without service or connected power.As an aside, the over-the-top services as a business model is quite interesting. These are traditional product companies that make cranes, motors, fire extinguishers, etc. They have decided to make their products smart and connected to gather additional service revenue or to develop closer relationships with their customers. But they want to continue installing their products without interfering with the existing infrastructure. This alone represents a whole category of Things in the Industrial arena that may need to operate with long battery life.How do you make a battery last that long?You buy a REALLY big battery.That certainly is one way, but often not very practical nor is it cost effective. A more engineered approach boils down to three things:1) Use a low-power processor that has advanced sleep controls.2) Use a low-power RF technology that allows precise control of TX/RX utilization time.3) Control the power utilization of sensor and actuator peripherals.In other words, wake up long enough to read a sensor and send the information and then shut everything back down in as low-power mode as possible. It’s all about managing the power duty-cycle.What are the tradeoffs?Of course, the number one rule of engineering is that to get something you want, you have to give something else up. There are always tradeoffs – in this case trading traditional networking and software programming for a long battery life.Wi-Fi and TCP/IP don’t really help you control the power duty-cycle very well. Wi-Fi takes RF time to lock onto an Access Point. TCP requires a connection handshake before sending data and the overhead of the protocol to make it reliable. All of this costs valuable RF and processor time in the power duty-cycle. It’s time not spent on transmitting data, but on establishing the connection and maintaining reliability. You might consider UDP as an alternative, but it still has excessive overhead and the reliability is now left up to a higher layer where you often lose even more efficiency and introduce more complexity into your application. Some alternative networking approaches to shortening the “ON” duty-cycle include:Fire and forget (if reliability isn’t a big issue, it’s the lowest power option) Time synchronized transmit (to avoid collisions)A backbone of powered repeaters to relay messages (reliability between battery-operated nodes and powered nodes takes less time)These and others are all non-traditional networking schemes, meaning that others schemes have to be employed to ensure reliability. The good news is that there are emerging standards at the physical, link and network layers for managing these things, but they can’t be expected to work the same way as the networking that we’ve come to appreciate. There will be additional tools and algorithms necessary to collect data reliably.Just to add one more level of complexity, traditional OSs don’t support the rapid sleep/wake cycles necessary to conserve this type of power, nor will they work with the limited RAM & flash typical to these constrained processors. The decision-making logic on the Thing will be embedded software and largely event-driven: a programming paradigm traditional IT developers are not familiar with.So the bottom line here is that Industrial IoT will require a significant portion of Things to have batteries and these batteries will need to last for such a long time that reliable networking and programming will require rare expertise.The problem isn’t really how to power an IoT Things Platform, but that an IoT Things Platform ought to make it easy to achieve long battery life.
