The National Library in Hanoi Opens a Section of Books in Spanish

By on December 20, 2020

first_imgBy Dialogo July 10, 2009 Hanoi, July 9 (EFE).- Today the Vietnamese National Library opened its first section of books in Spanish in Hanoi, aiming at responding to the demand for reading material in this language on part of the Vietnamese community that speaks or studies it, official sources indicated today. The Spanish section of the library, aimed at encouraging a taste for reading in the Southeast Asian country, has around a thousand books on its shelves and some 1,800 digitalized books at the moment. In a diplomatic note published by the VNA official news agency, the Vietnamese Minister of Culture thanked the Spanish embassy for its activity in obtaining the books that have made the creation of the library’s Spanish section possible. At Hanoi University, where a Spanish department was established in 2002, around 200 students are currently studying Spanish, and around another 170 are learning the language at Vietnam National University in Hanoi. Meanwhile, in southern Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City Open University (in the former Saigon) and Ho Chi Minh City University of Social Sciences and Humanities have similar numbers of students studying Spanish. In the 1970s, Vietnam and Cuba signed an agreement that allowed the Southeast Asian country to send students to the Caribbean nation to learn Spanish during a six-year period, with the result that over the course of time more than 6,200 Vietnamese learned the language of Cervantes.last_img read more

Rudi Grula, Međimurje Tourist Board: Sustainable tourism and production of quality local food are our future

By on November 18, 2020

first_imgA unique combination of rich family tradition, agricultural production based on wines and cultural heritage of Međimurje has created the Jakopić family which in its restaurant Terbotz in Štrigova offers exclusively Međimurje wines, groceries from its own garden and About 15 family farms with whom they cooperate. Međimurje can be proud of from 15 Decanters on 600 hectares of vineyards, and thus bear the unofficial title of best world average of Decanter medals on so few vineyards. The value of domestic products has long been recognized Terme Sveti Martin who buy agricultural products and groceries directly from local family farms and sell them to guests through their restaurants or wellness offers. That Terme has been profiling itself for many years as a destination that encourages and develops rural tourism, said the director Igor Nekić, and this is confirmed by the fact to 70% of food and products which they offer to guests comes from local family farms, and it is precisely because of the healthy food that many guests return to them. Finally, let’s add that as part of the press conference and socializing with partners, students of the Elementary School Draškovec had the opportunity to get acquainted with the programs of OPG Zadravec “Međimurski zajtrek” and “Pomazi mee” through which they socialized with domestic animals, got acquainted with the production of cheese and the tradition of agriculture. An important wheel, because if we do not respect ourselves, we will not be respected by others, as well as the education of new generations from an early age, how important domestic production and connection with tourism is. / / / 226 Croatian wines received one of the Decanter labels “Međimurje family farms are known for their approach based on honesty and quality, and these are the elements that we have recognized and that are complementary to our business vision. We are looking forward to the cooperation from which everyone will benefit, especially our guests who will eat healthy, fresh and local food, grown in the immediate vicinity of the resort. We are glad that we can be the accelerator of the small economy of the municipality and the county, and thus work on improving the local community“Said Igor Nekić, General Manager of LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin. The wall of pride and “greatness” located in the LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin restaurant, which makes it clear who their local partners are and whose products Toplica guests consume inside the facility. He is engaged in organic and biodynamic apple production and the cultivation of traditional cereals OPG Hunjadi from St. Mary. This type of agriculture gives higher nutritional quality to food, and the owner of the family farm Natalia Peter Hunyadi believes that in the future, organic production will be necessary for better human health and environmental protection. They try to present their rounded production to the guests, from the field to the table, to the finished products. Međimurje as a boutique wine region LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin: 70% of food and products offered to guests come from local family farms The success of the synergy of the agriculture and tourism sectors is visible through the cooperation of tourism entities, local producers and farmers’ associations, and one of the examples of quality synergy is OPG Zadravec – Sirana Opor.  Municipality of Sveti Martin na Muri which was declared European Destination of Excellence (EDEN) for the development of sustainable tourism in rural areas, with the aim of achieving added value and improving the gastronomic offer are branded products such as: Međimurje kalampera which, produced in the fields of Međimurje, meets about 70% of the needs of Croatian consumers and the Međimurje kid goes in the same direction. “The situation has directed us, as well as tourists, towards domestic products, a healthier lifestyle, active holidays in nature, in smaller rural areas. Already in March, Međimurje, aware of the situation, accepted the challenge, with a unique approach, modern communication methods and techniques, we designed and implemented the campaign “Međimurje gives more” and once again proved that the crisis does not have to be a problem, but an opportunity. Međimurje made the most of this opportunity for the benefit of all tourists, but also stakeholders in tourism”Pointed out the head of the Međimurje County Tourist Board Rudi Grula. Photo: Private archive Photo: Vina Jakopić  A good development strategy, great effort and synergy that drives Međimurje tourism yielded results during the coronavirus pandemic when the tourist offer of rural areas was given a special opportunity to position itself. And this is where Međimurje most proactively jumped out with the campaign. “Međimurje gives more”. The Međimurje wine road is s About 30 wine families a significant generator of economic activities in upper Međimurje and the holder of the promotion and placement of the protected wine brand “PUŠIPEL“Which has already taken its place on the world wine scene, as evidenced by this year’s results from the prestigious Decanter World Wine competition in London, where our wines won 15 medals.  The real indicator of innovation and creativity in Međimurje are also ecological producers, of which there are not many so far, but thanks to the autochthonous production they nurture, they contribute to the originality of our offer. By the way, the focus of the County and the County Tourist Board in the day’s work will be to encourage the development of organic producers on the development of biodynamic agriculture, whose foundations were laid by Dr. Rudolf Steiner. How is this year’s global theme World Tourism Day “Tourism and Rural Development “, on this occasion, the Tourist Board of Međimurje County organized a gathering with media representatives, tourism entrepreneurs and small farmers. Precisely with the aim of concretely emphasizing and showing what the synergies of the agriculture and tourism sectors look like in practice. The Zadravec family from Oporovac sells their basic goat and cheese production in 100% volume through local short supply chains and tourist programs on their family farms. “We inherited the tradition of goat breeding from japica and mama, and from the very beginning our goal was to sell products on the doorstep. In order to achieve this, we had to adjust the way we function and work, open a new world of thinking. Agriculture is our core business, and tourism is an added value in which we use innovation. “, said the owner of the family farm Jasminka Zadravec. An important stakeholder in rural tourism in Međimurje is also JU Center Dr. Rudolf Steiner which works on the promotion and expansion of biodynamic agriculture in Međimurje, but also throughout Croatia, Association “The best from Međimurje”Which through its store” Stacun “allows the sale of local agricultural products to locals and tourists and promotes short supply chains, Association for the Protection of Indigenous Agricultural Products of Međimurje County, which successfully conducted the process protection of Mesa ‘z tiblice , and what we believe will succeed with pumpkin oil,  Photo: Međimurje Tourist Board Currently, according to the director of the Međimurje Tourist Board, over 30.000 coupons were distributed during the “Međimurje gives more” campaign, and if we know that it was necessary to spend a minimum of HRK 250 for each coupon, an impressive calculation can lead to impressive HRK 7.500.000 of generated consumption, both local people, domestic visitors and tourists. And this amount should certainly be added to the additional consumption thanks to the coupons received. The development potential of Međimurje tourism is based on natural attractions and rich cultural heritage, which is mostly located in rural areas, as well as the offer of quality agricultural products and processed products through catering. By the way, as much as 80% of the area of ​​Međimurje is defined as a rural area, and 80% of the inhabitants of Međimurje live in that area. Međimurje can rightfully be ranked among the leaders in sustainable rural tourism in Croatia because with a developed communal and social infrastructure and a high quality of life, it provides guests with high quality tourist experiences in its rural area.   / / / Excellent cooperation! St. Martin’s, a beer created in collaboration with the brewery Lepi Dečki and Terme Sveti Martin OPG Zadravec – Sirana Opor  If I had to describe Međimurje in one word, then it would be a great boutique destination and a complete tourist story, which will only spread its wings. / / / MEĐIMURJE GIVES MORE! – EXCELLENT AND BEST DOMESTIC CAMPAIGN SO FAR “In many segments we serve as an example of good practice, especially in the tourism and sustainability sector which has become extremely important. Međimurje, as a dynamic county, produces 70% of potatoes for Croatian needs, 1/3 of the total production of apples in Croatia, 30% of the total amount of goat’s milk produced in Croatia. Our hardworking people produce award winning wines, honey, pumpkin oil, cheeses. Today, tourism is about sustainability, the ability to keep guests with quality agricultural production and offer, and we have been working on that for many years.”, Emphasized the prefect of Međimurje County and the president of TZMŽ Matija Posavec. Also, the driving force of rural development of Međimurje County is the synergy of agriculture and tourism, which is outlined in the Rural Development Strategy of MZ from 2010, but not only on paper, which is crucial, but it is visible in the field. Namely, it is in Međimurje that I can proudly point out the quality cooperation between tourism and small family farms, thus offering local and authentic food. last_img read more

8 Nigerians awaiting Execution in Indonesia

By on September 27, 2020

first_imgAustralians Andrew Chan, left, with Myuran Sukumaran inside Kerobokan prison in 2011. The were executed by firing squad in Indonesia for drug trafficking offenses. 8 more Nigerians are reportedly waiting to be executed in Indonesia. This is according to the United Nigerians in Diaspora, a group of Nigerians living outside the country.The group at a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday gave the names of Nigerians waiting to be executed as Michael Titus Igwe, Kingsley Okonkwo, Uchenna Onyewuru, Eugene Ape, Hunphery Ejike, Obinna Nwajiagu, Benjamin Onuoha and Ikenna Abanukwu.Chairman of the group, Mr Pascal Okolie while briefing newsmen, said Nigerians should rally round with other world leaders to stop the expected executions.“Considering that the next batch of execution will take place in no distant time in Indonesia, we urge the good people of Nigeria and our government to rise up with the entire world to stop further executions of Nigerians. Enough of the killings. Nigeria should leverage on the strong bilateral relationship it has with Indonesia and negotiate to stop the execution of the eight waiting to be killed. In as much as we totally condemn drug trafficking and wish to sensitize intending traffickers on the consequences that awaits offenders, we also condemn capital punishment especially since it has not been able to quell the issue of drug trafficking in Indonesia.” he saidMr Okolie said most of the Nigerians that have been jailed in Indonesia were not given fair hearing due to language barrier which made it difficult for them to prove their innocence. He accused the Nigerian embassy in Indonesia of neglecting her citizens in Indonesia“Most times Nigerians are thrown into prisons for more than four months without anyone knowing about it. They are tortured and some even die in the process. The way a country treats her citizens, is a reflection of how the citizens will be treated in foreign lands. Therefore, we feel it is high time our government rose to the occasion to ameliorate the plight of its citizens. We expected our government to show concern just like other countries whose nationals were involved. The way a government treats its citizens, is a reflection of how the citizens are likely to be treated in foreign lands. Therefore, we feel it is high time our government rose to the occasion to ameliorate the plights of its citizens no matter the circumstance. We use this opportunity to appeal to the youth, to beware of the kind of friendships they keep as well as activities they engage themselves. One of the reasons there are many young Nigerians in prisons in different countries of the world today, is due to get rich quick syndrome, fast track. But in the end, they lose everything including their lives.”he saidlast_img read more

New promoters see Sunday car counts on upswing at The New Raceway Park

By on September 23, 2020

first_imgForty-six truckloads of black gumbo clay were added to the quarter-mile oval this spring as part of am­bitious facility-wide improvements. “It was excellent that we got the IMCA sanction,” said Kiraly. “We’re bringing the fun back to rac­ing at this track. We saw four-wide racing at our last show and the drivers had a blast. We had 63 cars on our first night, 68 cars on our second and 72 on our third.” “Everything has been real positive,” he concluded. “We’ve gotten a lot of support from a lot of peo­ple.” “We have a lot of IMCA drivers who live in this area,” he added, “and we’re going to work very hard at getting the drivers who stopped racing here to come back.” The former driver and industry veteran Dennis Moore now co-promote The New Raceway Park in Jef­ferson S.D. “I’d raced for 15 years, in everything from a hobby stock to a modified. I hadn’t thought about promot­ing until some drivers asked me if I’d be interested,” Kiraly said. “One thing led to another before there was an offer I couldn’t refuse.” Kiraly and Moore also caught up on maintenance on the grandstand side of the track, notably with the concession area and restrooms. JEFFERSON, S.D. – An offer he couldn’t say no to got Sioux City businessman Steve Kiraly back into motorsports.

Real in talks with Mane

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Real Madrid have reportedly made contact with the representatives of Liverpool winger Sadio Mane regarding a potential future transfer. Mane has established himself as one of the most highly-regarded players in the world during his time at Anfield, contributing 73 goals from 150 appearances in all competitions. However, despite holding a contract until 2023, speculation persists regarding an exit for the Senegal international at the end of the season. According to Le10Sport, Real have already asked Mane’s camp whether he would entertain leaving Merseyside for Spain’s capital later in 2020. The report claimed that Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane is keen to use Mane in tandem with Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema. While the 27-year-old would cost well in excess of £100 million, Real hope to raise funds with the sales of Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez.Tags: Jurgen KloppLiverpoolReal MadridSadio ManeZinedine Zidanelast_img read more

Mel aware of the need to succeed

By on September 21, 2020

first_img And asked about what might happen if the Baggies do not take maximum points on Saturday, Mel said at his pre-match press conference on Thursday: “I understand why you have to ask the question. “But I’m sure you’ll understand that I don’t actually know.” He added: “My focus is on the players and working with them in order to improve them, because this is the only way I can be sure I’m going to be here for a long time.” Stretching back to before Mel’s arrival at the club, West Brom have won only once in 18 league games. They have 10 matches left to play, and while that is one more than 18th-placed Cardiff, 19th-ranked Sunderland have 12 to go and are only a point worse off than Albion and the Bluebirds. And the 51-year-old – whose side, after Swansea, face Hull and Norwich away either side of hosting Cardiff – said of Saturday’s encounter: ”Of course we must win. ”It is being said that there are four important games, but for me there is only one important thing at the moment, and that is to beat Swansea.” Although Mel is looking for improvement in his players, certainly it seems he has confidence in them. Asked if he could see winners in the Albion dressing room, Mel said: “If this wasn’t the case – if I didn’t believe there were – then I would have already spoken to the chairman in order to leave.” Mel emphasised he had not seriously thought about departing, and insisted he has no regrets over becoming West Brom boss. With the winless run, the loss of a considerable number of players through injury and the furore over Nicolas Anelka’s ‘quenelle’ goal celebration, it has hardly made for an enjoyable time in the Baggies hot seat so far for the former Real Betis coach. But asked if he had any regrets about taking the job, Mel, speaking in Spanish and through a translator, said: ”No. ”I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Alongside the situation with Anelka, the injuries and of course the results, there is also the fact that it is a new country with a new language and culture. ”But, for me, it was an opportunity and a really exciting one. ”I’m a very well recognised head coach in Spain, but here I have to earn the right to be respected. ”This is what I am trying to do and the only way I know is through hard work.” While it appears uncertain what the West Brom hierarchy think about Mel, it does, at the very least, look as if he has the backing of some of the club’s supporters. It has emerged that Albion fans are set to take Spain flags with them to Swansea as a show of support for Mel. And asked about that, he said: ”I think the supporters are extremely important. ”Players and coaches come and go but the supporters really are the heart and soul of the club. ”I can only thank them. Since I came to West Brom, they have been extremely kind to me. ”Indeed, everyone at the club has. But what I would really like to stress is that I am extremely indebted to the supporters. ”But perhaps this isn’t the best game (to display the flags) because Swansea have eight Spanish players!” Mel also said that Steven Reid (knee), Billy Jones and Claudio Yacob (both hamstring) would not feature on Saturday. Diego Lugano and Chris Brunt (both knee) had already been ruled out, while Anelka will serve a five-match suspension after both he and the FA declined to appeal against the sanction. West Brom head coach Pepe Mel does not know what will happen to him if his side fail to emerge from Saturday’s Barclays Premier League match at Swansea with a victory. Press Association Albion, clear of the relegation zone on goal difference alone in 17th place, have not won any of the seven fixtures they have played under Mel since his appointment in January. Reports have been suggesting his position is already under threat, while the Spaniard himself has made it clear he views the contest at the Liberty Stadium as a must-win game. last_img read more

United: Van Gaal’s not a done deal

By on

first_img The way Giggs conducted himself during the first press conference of his temporary reign is understood to have gone down well with senior figures as the club. The interim manager spoke of his desire to restore some pride to the club following a disastrous season under Moyes, who left the team in seventh place, some 23 points behind Barclays Premier League leaders Liverpool. Giggs has received the backing of Sir Alex Ferguson. The Scot, whose retirement teed up the appointment of Moyes – a decision he was a driving force behind – on Friday appeared to put his weight behind Giggs getting the job on a full-time basis. “I think that he (Giggs) is the one man they should go to really,” Ferguson said at a charity dinner, according to the Daily Telegraph. “He’s got 20-odd years of experience at Manchester United. “I signed him as a kid at 13 years of age. He’s gone through the gamut of emotions at the club – he’s experienced all the highs and lows.” Giggs has immediately tried to evoke memories of former eras at Old Trafford, by installing fellow members of the ‘Class of 92′ – Nicky Butt, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes – on his staff. “He knows exactly what’s needed to be a Manchester United player and I was so pleased he brought Paul Scholes back in, and Nicky Butt of course – two great professionals,” Ferguson added. “They understand the club, they are hard workers, they are straight as a die. So you have got the right combinations there, there’s no doubt about that.” Giggs, who has been taking his UEFA Pro Licence exams, wants to prove he has a future in management during his four-match spell as interim coach. “I’ve got a chance to show what I can do and what I am capable of as a manager in a short space of time,” he said. Giggs appears open to the idea of talking with the board about taking charge, or at least having some sort of role within the new coach’s set-up, in the summer. “It can happen (young managers getting the job). That’s not something I’m thinking about at the moment,” Giggs said. “That’s another conversation to be had in three weeks, six weeks or whenever in the future.” But United, who have put Ryan Giggs in charge until the end of the season, denied the reports, with a spokesman saying: “There is nothing to report. We have not signed a new manager. When we have something to report, we will announce it.” Club sources said there were still “a number of names in the hat” – suggesting the hunt for Moyes’ successor could take some time yet. Carlo Ancelotti, Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola have ruled themselves out of the running publicly. Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has done so too, but he was never thought to be under consideration. Other potential contenders include Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone and Juventus’ Antonio Conte. It is easy to see why Van Gaal would be an attractive option. The 62-year-old has won titles in Holland, Germany and Spain. He has also made it clear that he wants to move to England after the World Cup. He was rumoured to be linked with the Tottenham job, but United would prove to be a far more attractive option for the Dutchman. The fact that Van Gaal would not be able to take over at United until after the World Cup is not considered a deal-breaker by the club’s board. Woodward, meanwhile, is expected to be at Old Trafford on Saturday evening to watch Giggs take charge of his first United game versus Norwich. Woodward does not view the 40-year-old Welshman as a potential successor to Moyes, but the United hierarchy do see the midfielder as their potential manager a few years down the line. A report in Dutch paper De Telegraaf on Saturday claimed Holland coach Van Gaal had agreed to sign a three-year deal at Old Trafford following a meeting with United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in Portugal. It added that the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach, who will leave his post as Holland coach after this summer’s World Cup, would be free to choose his own backroom staff, claiming he would likely take Patrick Kluivert as his number two. Manchester United are yet to decide who should replace David Moyes despite reports Louis van Gaal has agreed a deal to take charge of the club. Press Associationlast_img read more

Dr. Donald Fennoy: PBC School District Rethinking Back to School Policy

By on September 20, 2020

first_imgPalm Beach County School District Superintendent Donald Fennoy says they are re-evaluating the way students will be introduced back into the classroom. Initially, the school district voted to not offer parents any option to send their kids back to the brick and mortar school. Only virtual learning was offered until South Florida entered into phase two of reopening. As a result, the county spent millions of dollars to equip every student with a laptop and internet connectivity.Now, Dr. Fennoy announced is amending his recommendation saying in-person learning will be parents’ choice and will take place when health conditions permit without any phasing of re-entry by grade level or program.He has called for a special meeting of the school board Wednesday at 2 p.m to discuss re-entry options.The district originally planned on bringing students back in stages, starting with students in transition grades, including pre-K, kindergarten, first, sixth and ninth grades, as well as Exceptional Student Education centers and cluster sites.The start of school in Palm Beach County has been delayed until August 31st. The majority of Martin County students returned to the classroom today.Any plan will then have to be submitted and approved by the Florida Department of Education.last_img read more

Bio MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020 Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Latest Postscenter_img ELLSWORTH — With time ticking away, Brody Boynton flipped the script.In a hard-fought match, Boynton and Foxcroft’s Elijah Ames had been locking heads for close to a minute. That was disadvantageous to Boynton, who was trailing and needed four points an impossibly brief amount of time to put himself in position to win. With only 20 seconds left, only a pin could save him.Out of seemingly nowhere, Boynton pulled it off. He gained leverage, pinned Ames to the mat with only four seconds left and chest-bumped his head coach, Dan Ormsby, in celebration.“That’s big for points!” Ormsby yelled. Bucksport was, after all, not too far behind Foxcroft in the overall team standings entering Boynton’s 170-pound title match. This win brought the Golden Bucks even closer to a possible first-place finish at Satuday’s tournament in Ellsworth.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textBucksport didn’t quite edge Foxcroft for first in the end, but Boynton’s win was still an important one for the team’s confidence. Despite struggling at the start of the day, the Golden Bucks bounced back to finish in second place and join Ellsworth in the top three.“We didn’t exactly get off to the start we wanted to today,” Ormsby said. “A lot of wrestlers that have done well for us before struggled early, and that set us back at the start. Our team had to find a way to get back up there in points, and we did.”Bucksport and Ellsworth both had some top wrestlers come up a bit short. The Golden Bucks’ David Gross, who’s won several competitions at the 285-pound level this year, lost to Madison’s Matt Brown in the semifinals. For Ellsworth, Logan Lord fell to Medomak Valley’s Steven Thompson in a closely contested title bout at 138.The day would later take a bizarre turn for Ellsworth in the 182-pound title bout. Trent Goodman, one of several Ellsworth wrestlers being honored for the team’s Senior Day, suffered what appeared to bite marks on his forearm as he recorded a pin against Lee Academy’s Artem Loginov. Loginov was later disqualified as a result.“I just straight up got bit,” Goodman said. “It was just weird. I didn’t even know what happened at first, but right as I got the pin, my arm felt something.”Goodman was one of two winners on the day for Ellsworth. The other was Peyton Cole, who easily defeated each of his three opponents in the 152-pound weight class. The Eagles also had strong showings from Lord, Josh Wright, Scott Firley and Ethan DesJardin.Bucksport’s other winner was Foster Ashmore, who claimed the 120-pound title with a win over Ethan Moulton of Piscataquis. Gross, Keigan Riccard and Alex Burbank won their respective consolation brackets for Bucksport.“I think what we’ll take away from this day is that we’re capable of competing with anyone,” Ormsby said. “We were dealing with an injury to Devin (Darveau) today and didn’t start the way we wanted to,” Ormsby said. “If we’re healthy and start better, that win is right there.For Ellsworth, the mood was much of the same. Head coach J.F. Burns was happy with how his some of his wrestlers who didn’t place performed, but the team had to rebound from a tough start to the day.“It seemed to me that we had a bit of a slow start and got better as the day went on,” Burns said. “These tournaments are long, and if you can hold your own later on, that’s always a good thing.”The next meet for both teams will be at noon Saturday, Jan. 28. Bucksport will host the meet, which will include all Penobscot Valley Conference teams and others from around the state.
