We bring you the concept of the #TogetherInSplit campaign

By on November 18, 2020

first_imgThus, as part of the campaign announcement, the Split Tourist Board published the video #TogetherInSplit, and I emphasized in the article that we cannot call one video a complete campaign, and that I hope that there is a broader plan for the #TogetherInSplit campaign. Thus, according to the campaign plan, it is planned to publish a different thematic content on social networks of the Tourist Board of Split. Every first day of the week, ie Monday, is reserved for HERITAGE QUIZ through which the cultural heritage and interesting contents of Split museums are presented. Tuesday is reserved for video content – VIRTUAL SPLIT. From video materials of travel agencies to interesting video contents about Split, while videos with contents that enable physical distance (active tourism, nautical, family contents prednost) have priority. The goals of the campaign are to stay in touch with tourists, inspire them to remember their trips to Split and fantasize about returning, and to interest new guests with creative content, the Split Tourist Board points out with a narrative to send a message of unity of all tourism workers in Split. Today or Saturday, it is reserved for CONFERENCE CALL where video stories are published – in which tourist guides tell short interesting stories about Split. Certainly commendable that one of our tourist boards has finally started to communicate according to the weather with narrative and messages according to the current situation – stay home, travel later (except for the mere recycling of old photos). PS On the same day, I received feedback from the Tourist Board of Split, that this is a planned and targeted campaign. Kudos to the TZ office who immediately responded on their own initiative and sent all the details about the #TogetherInSplit concept. As we wrote at the beginning of the week, the Split Tourist Board launched the #TOGETHERINSPLIT campaign. Friday or FRIDAY STORY it is reserved for interesting stories about Split and its inhabitants. Thus, yesterday a blog was published on the pages of the Split Tourist Board – City on air conditioning. * At least for now I know the only such example. If you have some more positive examples from Croatia, feel free to send info to [email protected] to publish. Last day of the week, TAKE ME BACK TO SPLIT is planned which aims to encourage companions to send their picture from the trip and continue to dream of coming to Split again. “We are in very difficult times for all of us, but together we can turn something negative into something positive. We decided to replace the fear for our own health and the health of our loved ones, insecurity, existence and other fears with togetherness, a positive attitude, professional knowledge, creativity and friendship. The result is the #TogetherInSplit campaign. We invite everyone to join us in this campaign by sharing videos, and creating and sharing content that we will post on our profiles”Points out the director of the Split Tourist Board, Alijana Vukšić. Thus, the Split Tourist Board was the first * of all tourist boards in Croatia to start a concrete campaign and communication, which has a head and a tail. Without going into the discussion and analysis of the quality of the content, it is certainly commendable that it is not just about publishing one video and that there is a concrete communication plan. This is one example of other TZs how to communicate and get started. It costs nothing, so there is no excuse for the added cost, but it takes effort, time and a desire to work. Investigate what and how TZ Split communicates HERE On Wednesday, gastro tours and gastronomic offer of Split restaurants and hotels are promoted through recipes, photos and videos – COOK O ‘CLOCK, while on Thursdays from the Split Tourist Board thank all services, doctors, police officers, traders, volunteers for preserving the city and safety through stories about individuals or publishing their pictures and videos (eg a stream of Red Cross video workers and “Drops” dancing Foot Shake Dance) or THANK YOU THURSDAY. The campaign in the first phase lasts until the end of June, while in the second phase, of course, depending on the situation, the emphasis will be on domestic guests.last_img read more

Residents Object to Fort Homeless Shelter, Rehab Center

By on August 4, 2020

first_imgBy Laura KolnoskiOCEANPORT – Controversy over two redevelopment sites within borough borders drew more than a dozen borough residents to a recent meeting of the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA).HOMELESS SHELTER CHALLENGEDWhen Super Storm Sandy destroyed the former Fort Monmouth barracks that housed county homeless persons, tenants were relocated to the John L. Montgomery Care Center in Freehold. The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders oversees that facility and recently voted to approve its potential sale. The residents must move to the county’s new homeless facility on the fort in Oceanport by Nov. 1, said Freeholder Lillian Burry, the county’s FMERA representative.“Hence the urgency in finding a suitable place,” she said after the meeting. While residents at the meeting expressed concerns about declines in property values, safety and quality of life, as well as a change in the shelter’s location from its original Oceanport site, officials at first indicated the matter was out of their hands, and then floated the possibility of reconsideration.Bruce Steadman, FMERA executive director, explained that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a formal commitment with New Jersey and the fort’s redevelopment authority to locate a county homeless shelter in Oceanport as part of the “reuse plan” created after the base’s closure in 2005. HUD approved the re-use plan in 2010. Officials, working with an engineer, were involved in the building selection process.“Persons may only stay at the shelter for 30 days; it’s temporary while they find work or a new home,” Burry said. “Usually there are never more than 24 residents. Men and women are separated. If there are problems requiring police, the town responds but the state police are stationed right there. Residents are not allowed to hang around, they must go look for work or do other things. If they drink or do drugs, they are removed; it’s very strict.”Councilman John Patti, filling in for Oceanport Mayor Michael Mahon on the FMERA board, read a statement, commenting, “Residents are at their wit’s end. Relocation of the homeless shelter must be thoroughly discussed in the best interests of Oceanport. We are seeking good neighbors. We want to work together with this board to find a suitable place, if in fact it must be placed in Oceanport.”Councilman Chris Paglia added, “The council has been besieged on the homeless shelter in recent days.”“The re-use plan is the driver for all redevelopment of fort properties and this site seems best to fulfill the goals of the plan,” Steadman said. “The plan has occasional changes due to changes in the market. HUD has authorized a homeless shelter in Oceanport be operated by the county, there is a legal agreement. There’s no way to deviate from that, but thequestion is where we will place that.”
Steadman noted that Mahon has been a member ofFMERA’s real estate sub-committee and other council members have sat in on other board meetings. Meetings between FMERA staff and the three mayors (Eatontown, Oceanport, and Tinton Falls), occur at least once monthly as policy. He also directed the public to the board’s professionally revamped website, for fortmonmouthredevelopment.com.FMERA Chairman James Gorman thanked residents for attending to offer their views and options. “It’s a wonderful thing and the process works,” Gorman said. “If the public has questions, use our email rather than listening to innuendo and rumors on Facebook. Please continue to come to our meetings.”DRUG REHABILITATION OPERATIONS QUESTIONEDOceanport and state officials are scrutinizing the arrangement between AcuteCare, which took over the fort’s former Patterson Clinic last year, and its new tenant, Unity Place of Monmouth County, a behavioral health service with a partial day care program. Unity moved into its new headquarters on Fort Monmouth July 7 according to its Facebook page. The site states Unity accepts referrals from health care sources, crisis centers, probation/parole, and drug court. Unity, formerly located on Heck Avenue in Neptune, has been posting photos of its new location’s renovation on Facebook since May. A letter to clients announcing the move was sent out June 25.At the Aug. 26 meeting, Councilman Patti said police were called to the location on Stephenson Avenue recently to handle disturbances, alerting the police and township officials that drug-related treatment was going on there for the first time. Borough, FMERA and state officials maintained drug rehabilitation was never mentioned as a potential use during the proposal and approval process.The acquisition of the former clinic by AcuteCare of Lakewood has been touted as one of the fort’s redevelopment victories. AcuteCare Health System, LLC, formed in 2002, establishes and manages long-term acute care hospitals. The firm purchased the 15-acre, 98,000-square-facility for $2.73 million, spent about $5 million in renovations, and expects to generate at least 200 jobs.“We were told it would be medical suites not drug rehab,” Patti said. “Nothing at the planning board ever mentioned a rehab facility. We’re not against that, but come and tell us.” Patti said the council is discussing the matter with its attorney.“They made broad statements in their proposal,” Steadman said.Gorman asked the state Attorney General to, “Look into it. It’s fair to say that no one on the FMERA side knew this was what it would be used for, but we have to verify that.”last_img read more

Judge Denies $111 Million JCP&L Power Line Project

By on

first_imgBy Jay Cook |An administrative law judge announced today that she has denied a much-maligned transmission line project designed to run through five Monmouth County towns.Administrative Law Judge Gail M. Cookson determined that Jersey Central Power & Light Co. (JCP&L) “has not met its burden of proof” in exhibiting the need for the Monmouth County Reliability Project (MCRP) – a $111 million, 230-kV transmission line planned to run 10 miles from Aberdeen to Red Bank, through Hazlet, Holmdel and Middletown, along the NJ Transit North Jersey Coast Line.In her decision, Cookson wrote “the aesthetic, real estate, and environmental impacts on the five communities is overwhelming and is not offset by the interests of all JCP&L ratepayers, that is, the general public.”Cookson’s decision is the first major hurdle for the project’s dissenters. Residents Against Giant Electric (RAGE), a residents group opposed to the MCRP, spent over $450,000 in fighting the project through the courts. The governing bodies from Middletown, Hazlet, Holmdel and Aberdeen also formed a joint municipal group to fight the MCRP.Cookson’s recommendation is now sent to the state Board of Public Utilities, where the board will ultimately decide the MCRP’s fate.Read Cookson’s full decision in this PDF: Judge Cookson Initial Decision 2018_03_08Look for a full story in the March 15 edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

If it was his last game I think it was very good he played in front of his fans and he was able to get a nice reception, but as I said we don’t know so I’m not able to comment. He was captain a few times in pre-season when Cahill and Azpi weren’t there. He’s not the first and won’t be the last to miss a penalty. It’s something I think I have some knowledge on and the keeper did quite well.”What can I say about Cesc? Five-hundred games, a player who is unique in his position, he has unbelievable vision and awareness of where his team-mates are on the pitch. He’s one of the few who has the ability to play that ball for the runs behind the defensive line, so precise and with the right timing. I think he’s one of a kind. He’s been fantastic for teams before us and the contribution he’s given to this club and this team has been amazing. Cesc is a top player.” last_img read more

Bill to Establish Building Act for Parliament Soon

By on October 24, 2019

first_imgA Bill to establish the Building Act to facilitate the adoption and efficient application of the National Building Code will be brought to both Houses of Parliament in the near future. This was disclosed by Minister of Justice, Senator the Hon. Mark Golding, during a sitting of the Senate on Friday, February 8. The Minister was contributing to the debate on a Motion brought by Senator Wensworth Skeffery, urging the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development to fast track the implementation of local government reform. Senator Golding explained that the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development has been pushing very hard to “bring forth the legislation which has been a long time coming”. “The building legislation, with some additional drafting instructions, was produced in September of 2012 and this required some additional drafting work to be done. The revised Bill has been sent back to the Ministry with the required adjustments made to it,” Senator Golding said. He added that the Local Government Ministry is also being encouraged to focus on the development of the regulations that are to accompany the legislation. The Minister explained that this will allow the Bill to become operationalised after the passage of the legislation. “So, I am anticipating that the Bill will be ready to be brought to Parliament in the near future,” Senator Golding said. The Building Act will, among other things, confirm the Bureau of Standards Jamaica as the standards authority with power to specify the version of the international codes that are to be used as the national code and to promulgate application documents in respect of those codes. As the standards authority, the Bureau will also be empowered to recognise building standards and approve, list or certify building products, construction methods, building components and systems. The Bill will seek to repeal the Kingston and St. Andrew Building Act of 1883 and the Parish Councils Building Act of 1908, and make new provisions for the regulation of the building industry. The proposed legislation will also give recognition to the relevant provisions of the National Heritage Trust Act, which require that the Trust be consulted before structures of historical value are demolished, and that any such demolition be undertaken by qualified personnel and be done to specific standards.last_img read more

Fight over secret St Annes residential school documents back in court

By on October 17, 2019

first_imgTORONTO – Survivors of the notorious St. Anne’s residential school square off against the federal government this week in another round of a convoluted legal battle over document secrecy.Among other things, the plaintiffs want Ontario’s top court to order a review of all St. Anne’s compensation claims adjudicated before the government disclosed thousands of documents from a 1990s criminal investigation by provincial police.They also want the court to set aside a decision allowing Canada to keep secret civil-litigation materials — despite an initial ruling to turn them over. The documents were generated during 62 lawsuits related to horrific physical and sexual abuse 154 Indigenous people had suffered at St. Anne’s in Fort Albany, Ont.Those lawsuits were all resolved without a trial but before the government settled a broader class action brought by Indian residential school survivors in 2007. As part of the class-action settlement, the government set up a compensation scheme for survivors known as the independent assessment process.The two St. Anne’s plaintiffs in this week’s appeal — known as H-15019 and K-10106 — were both initially denied compensation but succeeded after a legal fight and reviews. They maintain the difficulties they had in advancing their claims can be attributed to the government’s failure to disclose all relevant documents it had in its possession.They also argue other claimants may have run into the same issue.“Canada failed the St. Anne’s survivors and misled the adjudicators,” the plaintiffs say in written Appeal Court submissions. “Canada continues to fail in the duties it owes to the St. Anne’s survivors, the adjudicators, and the administration of justice by refusing to produce transcripts from examinations from discovery that are part of the factual narrative of St. Anne’s IRS.”The federal government, the plaintiffs argue, has no legal basis to claim “settlement privilege” to keep the civil documents secret. They say such privilege applies only to negotiations toward settlement of a lawsuit, not to sworn testimony and factual evidence contained in transcripts that are a normal part of such litigation.St. Anne’s, which the plaintiffs describe as “veritable house of horrors where, for generations, indigenous children suffered unspeakable physical and sexual abuses,” has long been the subject of criminal and civil proceedings. Courts in Ontario and British Columbia have issued close to 20 separate decisions and endorsements related to the compensation process involving the now-defunct school.In January 2014, Ontario Superior Court Justice Paul Perell ordered Canada to disclose all transcripts of criminal or civil proceedings related to St. Anne’s. Six months later, court documents show, the government simply wrote Perell to say it would not be handing over civil transcripts on the grounds they were confidential under the doctrine of “settlement privilege.”Last April in a new decision, Perell concluded Canada was not obliged to produce the civil transcripts — the ruling now under appeal.For its part, the Canadian government maintains the Appeal Court should not interfere. It asserts the issues are moot because H-15019’s claim has now been settled, and Perell was right to find that K-10106 had no standing to raise the matter.“In addition to legal arguments, the appellants make numerous unsupportable allegations that do not withstand any scrutiny of the evidence,” Ottawa asserts in its factum. “The appellants are wrong to allege that previous disclosure issues involving St. Anne’s…amounted to ‘material suppression of evidence.’”Intervening in H-15019’s appeal, lawyers acting as independent counsel under the Indian residential schools settlement argue Canada’s assertion of settlement privilege has never been recognized in law. They also argue “other claims from St. Anne’s that are yet to be heard could still be affected by the failure to disclose the civil transcripts.”The case is expected to be heard on Tuesday and Wednesday.last_img read more

Dawson Creeks Jen Jenkins eliminated from Masterchef Canada

By on October 13, 2019

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. — Aspiring professional chef and Dawson Creek resident Jen Jenkins is sadly out of contention for the title of Masterchef Canada, after she was eliminated on last night’s episode.Jenkins first cracked the Top 12 during the show’s season premiere in April. The 28-year-old stay-at-home mom had managed to make the Top 7 of the show’s competition, which featured the return of contestant Kaegan Donnelly from Vancouver after he won a redemption challenge. The eight amateur chefs were split into two teams to create a three-course tasting menu inspired by the Group of Seven for seven Order of Canada recipients. Sadly, the Red Team ended up rallying after nearly falling apart to beat Jenkins’ team in the challenge, meaning the team’s four members now had to stave off elimination. The four had to compete in the Pressure Test / Replication Challenge, which involved replicating oysters prepared three different ways. The first was a Japanese-inspired sake poached oyster with Asian pear slaw and shelled lobster claw. The second was a raw oyster topped with mignonette sauce, champagne jelly, and red tobiko, and the third was an oyster Rockefeller with béchamel spinach purée, sautéed oyster mushrooms with panko crumbs. Marissa Leon-John ended up winning an impromptu oyster-shucking contest, meaning Jenkins was up against Donnelly and Beccy Stables in the final challenge, which she sadly lost. Despite being eliminated from the show, Jenkins’ future in the culinary industry looks incredibly promising. Jenkins and her family will be moving to Ontario later this year after she was accepted to the Stratford Chefs School. Jenkins said that she’ll begin her studies next fall, with the goal of achieving her dream of being paid to do what she loves: cook delicious food.last_img read more

Cong fields sons of Raj CM in 1st list of 19 candidates

By on October 12, 2019

first_imgJaipur: In his electoral debut from his father’s home turf Jodhpur, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s son Vaibhav Gehlot will take on Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat. Vaibhav Gehlot was named in the Congress list of candidates released Thursday night, after speculation in the state that the CM was keen that he is fielded by the party. The BJP had earlier announced the candidate of Shekhawat, who won last time from the same seat dominated by the Bishnoi and the Jat communities. The other prominent name in the list is BJP stalwart Jaswant Singh’s son Manvendra Singh who will fight on Congress ticket from Barmer. He had represented the constituency in the 14th Lok Sabha for the BJP. When he switched over to the Congress, he was pitted against then chief minister Vasundhara Raje in Jhalawar. He lost to her. The BJP is yet to declare its candidate for the Barmer-Jaisalmer Lok Sabha seat dominated by Jats, Muslims and Dalits. Both the major political parties BJP and Congress have declared 19 nominees each so far for the 25 Lok Sabha seats in the state.last_img read more
