Crowds on all roads, and HGSS has an important message

first_imgSmart enough. And that this is not just a joke of the HGSS, but of important messages, shows the traffic accident that happened a few days ago on the Adriatic Highway.Source: Facebook HGSS From week to week, HAK warns of huge traffic jams on our roads, of course it is the “peak” of the season and traffic jams (although a mild word for the current situation on our roads) on our roads to and from the sea are something that has already become part part of the adventure. And the journey from point A to point B is part of the annual, right?Unfortunately, due to long-term growth based only on the growth of accommodation capacities, and not on the development of tourist destinations, from year to year we have increasing infrastructure problems in our tourist destinations, including our roads that simply cannot accommodate so many vehicles.The new mainland-Ciovo bridge doesn’t help either, because normally it’s just a short section with two lanes, and traffic jams happen before and after. All this is a consequence because we do not deal with tourism strategically and sustainably. How to expect the growth of arrivals and overnight stays, and at the same time we have not provided the prerequisites for the same, except for the accommodated capacity. But that is a broader topic for another discussion.But as we have a hundred people, a hundred surprises, so in abnormal situations, abnormal things happen, and so on our roads. A team from the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) warned of an abnormal thing in their already legendary way. And this is an opportunity to remind ourselves of some of the legendary messages and warnings for HGSS tourists.last_img read more

February Jobs That Pay Update: A Bold Budget for a Stronger Pennsylvania

first_img Economy, Infrastructure, Jobs That Pay, Minimum Wage, Round-Up, SWEAP, The Blog It’s been a busy month for Governor Tom Wolf as he travels the commonwealth to highlight his proposed plan for the 2019-20 Pennsylvania budget. The governor stopped at schools, businesses, and rallies fighting for the right for every Pennsylvanian to have proper job training and a good career that provides a family-sustaining wage.Building the ‘Strongest Workforce in the Nation’His goal for the budget is to create the ‘Strongest Workforce in the Nation,’ an ambitious goal that he believes Pennsylvania can achieve through minimum wage increases, continuing investments in education and career training, and by creating the Keystone Economic Development and Workforce Command Center. Creating jobs that pay has been the cornerstone of Governor Wolf’s governance through his first four years and it continues to be a big part of his mission today.Fighting for Fair WagesRaising the minimum wage is an important issue for the governor. During the budget address, he highlighted the importance of raising the wage to $12 an hour with a 50 cent incremental increase until reaching $15 an hour in 2025. Pennsylvania has been at $7.25 an hour since 2009 and since then 29 states including our neighboring states have raised the wage floor for their workers.Investing in Education and Career TrainingThe PAsmart initiative has proved to be a success for the Wolf Administration as millions of dollars have been given to schools and businesses as direct investments in teachers, students, and Pennsylvania’s future workforce. A new website for the initiative has been created as a one-stop website to consolidate Pennsylvania’s education, training, and job search tools for people pursuing an education or career in the commonwealth.Governor Wolf will continue to travel the state to push for the advancement of Pennsylvania’s workforce and to pass legislation that will benefit the hardworking people of the commonwealth, their families, and their businesses.Highlights from January – February 2019Gov.

Cricket News Scotland Stunned By Singapore In 2020 ICC World T20 Qualifier

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: October is proving to be a nightmare when it comes to Scottish sport. After their Rugby team was dumped out of the league stages by Japan in the ongoing 2019 Rugby World Cup and the footballers suffered an abject Euro 2020 qualifying defeat in Russia, it was the turn of the cricket team to add more heartbreak. Scotland, who have participated in three 50-over World Cups in the past beginning from 1999, were humbled in surprising fashion by 21st-ranked Singapore in the ongoing ICC World T20 qualifiers. In the match played at the ICC Academy in Dubai, Scotland chose to bowl but their plans were undone by some confident batting. After reducing Singapore to 7/2, Scotland were undone by a stand of 44 between Surendran Chandramohan and Aritra Dutta. Dutta smashed 32 off 15 balls and the knock included three sixes but once he fell, Chandramohan shared a partnership of 78 with Manpreet Singh, the wicketkeeper. Chandramohan scored his fifty and some important contributions from Janak Prakash and Navin Param helped Singapore reach 168/6.In response, Kyle Coetzer and George Munsey shared a 70-run stand for the opening wicket. However, Scotland had a slight stutter in the middle overs as they lost three wickets for 14 runs. The quick dismissals increased the pressure and all hopes rested on Calum MacLeod. Scotland needed just eight runs in the last over which was to be bowled by Amjad Mahboob.Also Read | Revealed – Why Madhav Apte, Who Averaged Nearly 50 In Tests, Played Only Seven Games For IndiaHowever, on the third ball, Mahmood got rid of MacLeod for 44 and when two further wickets fell in the last over, Scotland had lost by two runs to hand Singapore a significant victory. “Before the second-last over, we had 19 to defend. But I had self-belief and confidence and I did it,” Mahboob said. In all, 14 nations are vying for six places at next year’s World T20 in Australia by playing in the round-robin qualifiers.last_img read more
