All employees of Plava Laguna and Valamar Riviere had their basic salary increased by 3.5 percent

first_imgRELATED NEWS:DO YOU KNOW THE STORY OF MARY?VALAMAR INVESTS 11 MILLION HRK IN MODERNIZATION OF LAUNDRY IN POREČ At the third round of collective bargaining between representatives of the Croatian Trade Union of Tourism and Services (STUH) and representatives of the Management Board of Valamar Riviera dd from Poreč held on April 4, 2017, STUH managed to increase the basic salary of all employees by as much as 3.5 percent.The salary increase starts on June 1 this year in the amount of 1 1/2 percent, while the remaining 2 percent starts on December 1 this year. In addition to this increase, the tariff annex to the Collective Agreement has been changed, whereby the surplus occupations (cooks, waiters, cleaners značajno) are significantly raised coefficients, so no one will be able to have a salary less than 4 thousand kuna net, ie it is a salary increase of 2 1 / 2 percent.Thus, this year in Valamar, the total wage bill will be increased by 6 percent in gross amount.At the collective negotiations between the representatives of the trade union and the company’s management, the employees of Plava laguna dd were provided with an increase in the basic salary, which will be applied as early as 1 May. As they point out in the Trade Union of Tourism and Services of Croatia (STUH), an increase in the basic salary by 3 percent has been negotiated, so now it will amount to HRK 3.820,00.The employer explained to the Trade Union the intention to harmonize the salaries and other material rights of the employees of Istraturist dd Umag with the contracted rights of the employees of Plava laguna dd Poreč, given that Istraturist dd Umag merges with Plava laguna. Alignment began in 2016 and is likely to end during 2018. Due to the large difference in workers’ rights, the union accepted the employer’s proposal that the application and payment of the increased basic salary start on May 1, 2017.The salary increase applies to all Blue Lagoon workers, and better material conditions are prepared for the seasonal workers (provision of three hot meals, increase in capacity as well as accommodation standards).last_img read more

first_imgMERS infects 3 more in Saudi Arabia, 1 fatallySaudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health (MOH) today reported three more MERS-CoV cases, all secondary infections in Khafji where two other cases were recently reported, potentially signifying a household or healthcare cluster.The patients are all men, one of whom was a 56-year-old man who died from his MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) infection, the MOH said in an update to its epidemiologic week 14 report. The others are ages 49 and 59. It’s not known whether any of the three had recent camel contact.Khajfi is in northeastern Saudi Arabia near the border with Kuwait. The two earlier patients were a 75-year-old man who had contact with camels and whose illness was reported on Mar 29 and a 25-year-old man with secondary exposure whose infection was reported on Mar 31.The trio of new cases lifts the country’s total for the year to 119 infections, which includes 57 linked to a large outbreak in Wadi ad-Dawasir.Apr 4 Saudi MOH update Cholera vaccine campaign starts in wake of Mozambique cyclone floodingGlobal health groups launched an oral cholera vaccine campaign yesterday in Beira, Mozambique, to curb an outbreak following severe flooding from the devastating effects of Cyclone Idai, which struck the country and three of its neighbors in March.In a press release yesterday, the World Health Organization (WHO) said nearly 1,500 cholera cases and one death have already been reported and nine cholera treatment centers are already admitting patients.Nearly 900,000 doses of oral cholera vaccine from the global stockpile arrived in Mozambique on Apr 2. The stockpile is funded by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, which also supports the campaign’s operational costs. The campaign will be conducted by Mozambique’s health ministry with support from the WHO and other partners, including UNICEF, the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Doctors Without Borders, and Save the Children.Seth Berkley, MD, Gavi’s chief executive officer, said in the statement that the cyclone left Beira’s water and sanitation infrastructure in ruins, providing conditions for the spread of cholera, which is endemic in the country. “This cyclone has already caused enough devastation and misery across south east Africa; we have to hope these vaccines will help stop a potentially major outbreak and prevent yet more suffering.”Apr 3 WHO press releaselast_img read more

Ryder Cup stars confirmed for Thailand Golf Championship

first_imgWith a little under two months to go before the action gets underway at magnificent Amata Spring, which has been voted as the best course on the Asian Tour for three consecutive years, Spain’s Garcia said he can’t wait to return to the Land of Smiles.Spain’s Sergio Garcia will be returning to Thailand to defend his title. (Photo/Thailand Golf Championship)“I have been coming to the Thailand Golf Championship every year and I love it, but last time was especially special as it gave me my first win of the season,” said the world number three, who made a hole-in-one on his way to a four-shot win in 2013.  “The event always attracts a really high-quality field and this year it is as strong as ever, so I’ll need to be at my best if I want to retain my title.  I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”In Watson and Kaymer, the Spaniard faces two players who have this season recorded their second major championship victories.  In April, 35-year-old Watson put on a brilliant display of ball-striking to collect his second Green Jacket for winning the Masters Tournament at famed Augusta National Golf Club, while Kaymer powered his way to a convincing first US Open title at Pinehurst’s historic No. 2 course.“Sergio played great last year and I’m sure all the European guys will be feeling good after their win at the Ryder Cup, but Amata Spring is a course I really enjoy playing and I know I can perform well on.  There’s no doubt: it’s going to be another great week in Thailand,” declared Watson, whose best result at the Thailand Golf Championship came in 2012 when he finished in a tie for second behind runaway winner Charl Schwartzel.Tickets for spectators cost 300 baht per day for Dec. 11 and 12, 400 baht on Dec. 13 and 500 baht on Dec. 14.  A 4-day ticket package costs 800 baht.  Entrance is free for spectators aged 60 or more and children under 16 years (present ID card or passport at venue.)  Tickets can be purchased at Major winners Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer will join defending champion Sergio Garcia in a star-studded field for the eagerly anticipated fourth edition of the 2014 Thailand Golf Championship, which will be staged once again at Amata Spring Country Club on December 11-14. In addition, two of Europe’s other Ryder Cup heroes – Lee Westwood, who captured the Thailand Golf Championship in 2011, and Victor Dubuisson – have committed to play in the Asian Tour’s US$1 million flagship tournament, as has South African legend Ernie Els, who will be making his first appearance in the event.Bubba Watson of the USA will be one of the many big names appearing at the Dec. 11-14 tournament. (Photo/Thailand Golf Championship)Adding to the excitement of a tournament that has provided so much drama in its first three years, the Thailand Golf Championship has been confirmed as part of The Open Qualifying Series (OQS), with four places at the 2015 Open, to be held at St Andrews, up for grabs.last_img read more

For Ravens, helping the city starts with listening, learning

first_imgBenjamin Watson (AP Photo/File) BALTIMORE (AP) — Between the three of them, they cover the career arch of an NFL player. Tight end Benjamin Watson has played 14 NFL seasons. A six-year veteran, defensive tackle Brandon Williams believes he’s just entering his prime. Outside linebacker Matthew Judon’s first two seasons with the Ravens hint at a long and productive career.Seated last week in the front row of a conference room in a downtown Baltimore law office, nine floors above where the snow accumulated on city streets, the three men shared a common interest. They listened intently as educators, activists and civil rights attorneys engaged them in conversation about social issues facing the city that the players currently call home.“It’s one thing for us to hear about the injustices that continue to occur, but in order to properly advocate and tell others, you have to listen and you have to learn,” Watson said. “That’s what today was about.”Watson, Williams and Judon spent last Wednesday at the offices of Downs Collins P.A., a Baltimore-based law firm with a history of handling civil rights cases. The event was part of the Listen & Learn Tour, an initiative of the Players Coalition, an independent organization that is investing time and resources into elevating and confronting social justice and racial equality issues around the country.Attorneys Tiffani Collins and Jason Downs, both Baltimore natives, served as the hosts and moderators. Downs represented the family of Freddie Gray whose death in April 2015 while in police custody spurred widespread unrest in Baltimore.As the players settled into their seats, the mounted television in the front of the room flashed the words: “Freddie Gray didn’t die in a vacuum.” What followed was an overview on policing in Baltimore and discussions centered on bail reform, education and the school-to-prison pipeline.“I’m hoping that we build a relationship, but more importantly, that these players build a relationship with the Baltimore community,” Downs said. “These guys aren’t just talking the talk, they’re walking the walk. They came out in the middle of a snowstorm and they were attentive, they were asking questions, they offered ideas from the very beginning. They weren’t just taking the guided tour. They were offering their input and their insight is invaluable.”Watson, a father of five, inquired about specific legislation affecting schools. Judon spoke of how he used to stay home from high school on certain days because he was frustrated with the education process. Williams shook his head as he heard stories about people stuck in jail for months because they couldn’t afford to post bail.“The whole time I was sitting there, I was just kind of thinking,” Williams said. “We got all three phases of football sitting right in the room with all these great minds. It’s an amazing thing. I’m going to keep in touch with everyone here and just try and make a difference, try to better my community, better the place where my kids live. Everyone deserves a chance to get help.”NFL players — and athletes in general — have been the subject of much scrutiny in recent months due for their protesting, which for some has including kneeling during the national anthem, of issues such as racial inequality and police brutality. Some Ravens officials believe that a dozen of their players kneeling before the team’s game in London last September contributed to attendance issues at M&T Bank Stadium during the season.Meanwhile, members of the Players Coalition are hoping more attention gets paid to what athletes are doing away from the field. In January, league owners reportedly set aside $89 million as part of the “Let’s Listen Together” initiative to publicize players’ efforts for social and racial equality.This past week, New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis lobbied lawmakers in Albany, New York, on bail reform. New England Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty went to the statehouse in Boston to discuss legislation regarding juvenile court. Former Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin and Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, the co-founders of the coalition, spoke at a Harvard summit on criminal justice reform.At the Downs Collins’ office in Baltimore on Wednesday, the speakers included Caryn York, the first African-American female to lead the Job Opportunities Task Force; Douglas Colbert, who runs the Access to Justice Criminal Defense Clinic at the University of Maryland School of Law; Erek Barron, a Maryland delegate and former federal and state prosecutor; Dayvon Love, the director of a grassroots think tank that advances the public policy interests of African-Americans; Erika Strauss Chavarria, a Howard County teacher and member of the board of directors of the National Education Association; and Cristina Duncan Evans, a Baltimore educator and a member of the American Federation of Teachers.The three NFL players were initially scheduled to sit in on bail hearings at Baltimore District Court, but the snowstorm forced court closures. Otherwise, the day went on as planned.“It was important to be here,” said Williams. “It just allows us to listen in to the issues going on in our community. Benjamin said it best: we play for this city every Sunday. Our kids go to the same schools. Why not know about it? Why not learn more about it and try to make a difference and help others in the process?”Watson, 37, has long been one of the NFL’s most socially conscious and active players. He’s written two books, one of them on race relations. Currently a free agent after playing two seasons with the Ravens, he’ll most likely continue his career elsewhere in 2018. Watson, though, felt it was important to be joined by players who figure to be in Baltimore long after he departs.“Those guys have a heart for the city of Baltimore and they’re going to be here for a long time,” Watson said. “I joke with Judon, I say, ‘Hey man, you’re the second coming of (Terrell) Suggs, you’ll be here for 15 years. Get ready.’ What a tremendous voice they have in this city and what better way for people to listen to them than to see their actions, see that they really care about the community that they represent every Sunday.”Williams, 29, signed a five-year deal with the Ravens last March. He and his young family live in Baltimore year round and he’s one of the most visible Ravens in the community. Judon, 25, said he’s motivated to get more involved.“It’s important because this stuff affects me,” Judon said. “I have a daughter. She’s 2 years old. I feel like I’m playing for those who don’t have a voice, like my daughter and other youth, people in poverty-stricken neighborhoods, people that don’t know that they have a choice or they can do something about their situation.”After hearing about how many people go to jail after missing court dates, Judon suggested starting a phone app that reminds people of when they have to be in court. Williams mentioned a bus service that would pick up people with transportation issues and get them to court.After Love, Chavarria and Evans discussed challenges that local schools are facing, Judon asked a pointed question: “How do we all change schooling and make it different than it was for the first man who went to school?”“I could have been in Hawaii today, but I’m glad I’m here. I’m glad I’m making these connections and building these bridges for things that can be put in place in the future,” Judon said. “I feel like I have a unique mind. Everybody does. But I have a lot of different ideas and my wheels get spinning really fast. I’m glad I can be in these types of situations to just forge my opinion.”Colbert, who worked tirelessly for bail reform, praised the players for their “commitment to social justice.” Downs told the three players that “it’s not about your money. It’s about your time. We need you to donate your time.”Afterward, the players stuck around, posed for a picture and exchanged contact information. They vowed that Wednesday was only the start of relationships that they hope to impact Baltimore.“We all want to get involved in the city that we live in,” Watson said. “We want to leave our mark.”___Information from: The Baltimore Sun, http://www.baltimoresun.comlast_img read more

Who is Borussia Dortmund’s new signing Ousmane Dembele?

first_img HOW DOES HE PLAY?  CEST Those numbers have allowed ‘Dembouz’ to become a regular in France’s junior teams. He’s played for the U17 team since 2013 and has caught the attention of the likes of Benfica, Porto and Red Bull Salzburg, all of whom tried to sign him last summer.  Rennes, though, managed to hold on to the player with the promise of a professional contract and minutes in Philippe Montanier’s first team. And Montanier used him on November 13 of last year against Angera. Since that day, Dembele has become more and more regular in the team and since Corbis replaced Montanier as manager, his growth has been even more impressive. His most impressive performance came in March, when he scored a hat-trick against Nantes with Barça’s scouts in the stands.  Miki Soria Born in Vernon, France, Dembele developed at Evreux, before moving to Rennes as a 13-year-old. There, he has grown as a player, taking gigantic steps forward and becoming the jewel of the club’s academy. Last season, at just 17, he scored 13 goals in the 18 games he played for the club’s B team in the fifth tier of French football.  Few times has a player passed from anonymity to fame so quickly. In hardly 20 matches as a professional footballer, Ousmane Dembele has become, completely on merit, one of the stars to follow in Ligue 1 thanks to the nine goals and three assists since his debut.  Those who have seen Dembele regularly say he has a little bit of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar about him. He has the Portuguese’s speed and a similar finishing style. From the Brazilian, he has the ability to beat a man with ease. Data to hand, he now has the most dribbles in Europe’s top five leagues – ahead of Hatem Ben Arfa and Neymar. His 12 goals, meanwhile, situate him as the top scorer of players under the age of 21, too, with one more than Sporting’s Paraguay forward Tony Sanabria.  12/05/2016 Upd. at 16:03 We’re talking about a left-footed player, but one that can play on either flank. If he’s on the right, he’ll look to cut in on his left and shoot, akin to the style of Arjen Robben. In any case, his versatility in attack is a quality to keep in mind. He has a lot of potential, but he needs a lot of minutes to consolidate his play and to continue learning.. For the moment he is doing that at Rennes. Next season? Borussia Dortmund.last_img read more
