Quality labels for agricultural products from the Vrgorac area – Vrgorac quality

first_imgThe purpose of this label is to differentiate Vrgor products from the competition, to raise and maintain product quality and to encourage sales in the local, regional and national markets. As part of the label “Vrgorac Quality”, the official slogan was chosen – “From the heart of Vrgorac, our home.” “This will be one of the most important projects for our agriculture. In today’s competitive market, communication is becoming an increasingly important factor in successful business. When it comes to agri-food products and rural tourism services, the emphasis is on networking the offer, creating common labels and joint promotional activities. We worked for a year on a project that will help our farmers”, Announced the mayor of Vrgorac Ante Pranic. Each family that meets the criteria will receive a label, and the end of the label will be visible and the number of the family. Vrgorac products will soon receive a unique label “Vrgorac quality”. Vrgorac started this project in April 2019 in cooperation with four agricultural associations that total over 450 family farms, and it was presented to all agricultural producers.  Clusters, connectivity, quality standard, branding – this is the only real step towards the development of agriculture and tomorrow’s merger with tourism. Well done to Vrgorac, those who deal with market development are growing and developing. In the area of ​​the City of Vrgorac, agricultural production is extremely developed, and the most important products are strawberries, prosciutto, wine, peaches, nectarines, grapes, table grapes, vegetables and honey. They are among the leading areas in Croatia in terms of vines, prosciutto, strawberries and table grapes. The quality label will be able to be used on product packaging and labels and on promotional materials, and in the first phase the label will be awarded for strawberries and strawberry products, fresh fruits and vegetables and products made from their processing, honey and other bee products and wine and other products. of grapes and wine.

Gotthard base tunnel under threat

first_imgIT WAS always possible that the finger of sugar crystal dolomite stretching down to the alignment of the planned Gotthard base tunnel would prove to be a major obstacle when it came to serious digging. Just how tricky it may be to tunnel through this treacherous material in the Piora syncline was revealed at the end of March when Electrowatt submitted a detailed report to Swiss Federal Railways Chief Executive Dr Benedikt Weibel. This suggested that the cost of tunnelling through around 300m of the dolomite could reach SFr700m. The previous worst case estimate dating only from January was SFr300m.Weibel reacted at once by calling for work to be halted on the access shaft further north at Sedrun and froze the SFr75m of funds that SBB has available for additional work there. Around 700m of the 990m horizontal gallery has been completed; this may still continue, but contracts are unlikely to be let as planned for the 780m vertical access shaft which needs to be built ahead of the main tunnel to allow intermediate faces to be opened up. Work would only resume at Sedrun after it has been established precisely what cutting through the sugar dolomite will entail – tunnellers have already bored a 5·5 km exploratory gallery from Faido and located the dolomite, but it is still not certain how far the strata extends.In an interview with the Swiss media, Weibel attacked engineers suffering from a ’professional malady’ who say ’everything is possible’ without considering the cost. This is apparently not the reason for a decision by SBB’s AlpTransit project manager Peter Zuber to stand down at the end of the year.When the parliamentary committee on transport met on April 7-9, it ruled that no further money would be freed for preliminary works until further geological investigation had determined the feasibility of the Gotthard bore – a process that could take two more years. This means that completion of the Gotthard base tunnel will only be possible in 2010-11 at the earliest.Switzerland is meanwhile committed to transfer road transit traffic to rail by 2004, and it also has commitments with EC countries to provide adequate rail capacity. The result is that the Llast_img read more

Boycott reference dropped from LGPS investment strategy guidance [updated]

first_imgThe government is planning to appeal the judgement, according to Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth, parliamentary under-secretary for Communities and Local Government.Replying to a question from Baroness Tonge, an independent member of the House of Lords, Lord Bourne wrote: “The Government is strongly opposed to boycotts, which undermine its work to support the peace process and achieve a negotiated solution.“We have received permission to appeal the judgement on the guidance to administering authorities on preparing an investment strategy statement for Local Government Pension Scheme funds, and will submit an appeal shortly.”He said the government would amend the guidance pending the outcome of the appeal, but this has already been done.Ralph McClelland, a lawyer at Sackers, said he would have expected the government to amend the guidance given the judgement.“I’m not particularly surprised they’ve done that and I think it’s appropriate as well,” he said.The guidance, from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), is on how the LGPS should prepare and maintain an investment strategy statement, which the schemes’ administering authorities are required to formulate and must be in accordance with the guidance issued by the minister in charge.The statement relating to boycotts and divestment was included in the guidance in relation to the requirement that the strategy statement set out how “social, environmental or corporate governance considerations are taken into account in the selection, non-selection, retention and realisation of investments”.Fergus Moffatt, head of public policy at the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF), said: “We have argued since DCLG first consulted on this that LGPS funds should be taking financially material factors into account and that the appropriate tests for taking non-financial factors into account were set out by the Law Commission in 2014, namely that scheme members share the concern and that there is no risk of significant financial detriment to the fund.“The inclusion of rules requiring schemes to invest in line with government foreign and defence policy was arbitrary and in conflict with this clear guidance.”He said UKSIF welcomed the decision to remove this aspect of the rules, “at least until the conclusion of any potential appeal by the government”.The case against the government was brought by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, which said the power was introduced “specifically to curtail divestment campaigns against Israeli and international firms implicated in Israel’s violations of international law, as well as to protect the UK defence industry”.A DCLG spokesperson said: “Current local government pension scheme investment guidance has now been amended to reflect the High Court  judgment regarding boycotting and divestment and sanctions against foreign nations. The government is appealing the court’s decision.” The UK government has amended guidance to local government pension schemes (LGPS) to remove a reference to boycotts and divestment from foreign nations being “inappropriate”, although it plans to appeal the High Court judgement that is likely to have prompted the change.The guidance used to state that “using pension policies to pursue boycotts, divestment and sanctions against foreign nations and UK defence industries are inappropriate other than where formal legal sanctions, embargoes and restrictions have been put in place by the Government”.This no longer features in updated guidance that was published yesterday.The amendment comes after a High Court last month ruled that the guidance was “unlawful”.last_img read more

DCC beat Police in key NBS 40-over clash

first_imgTHE Demerara Cricket Club registered back-to-back wins over the weekend, including an important victory against the previously unbeaten Police Sports Club when action continued in the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA)-New Building Society (NBS) Second Division 40-over cricket competition.DCC’s Dexter George took 5-25 against Police yesterday.DCC defeated Bel Air Rubis II by six wickets on Saturday. Bel Air batted first and were routed for 94 in 27.1 overs (Steven Sankar 4-18 from eight overs and Daniel Mootoo 3-3 from 6.1 overs). DCC, who lost four wickets in the process, reached the target in 21.1 overs.Yesterday, the Queenstown team travelled to the Eve Leary ground to meet the home team in a decisive clash.The game was important because it keeps DCC in line for a semi-final spot. The top two teams from Zone B will reach the final four, but so far, it has been a three-team race between the Everest Cricket Club, Police and DCC.DCC lost a heartbreaker to Everest via the Duckworth Lewis method a few weeks ago, so they were in a must-win position against the Lawmen to stay in the hunt.Police won the toss and opted to bowl first. It paid off with opening bowler Steven Harris trapping Joshua Persaud (0) leg before in the first over. Raymond Perez, who has been in form, then joined Dexter George, but the latter became Harris’s second victim to leave the score at 2-23.Although Perez played a few shots, he did spend some time at the crease for his 42 (2x4s, 3x6s), it was not until Ashmead Nedd joined Derwin Christian that DCC were able to wrest control.The pair added 104 runs, with Nedd hitting 79 not out. The West Indies U-19 cricketer hit six fours and four sixes in his innings. Former national cricketer, Christian, struck three sixes in his knock of 35.DCC ended their 40 overs on 214-6. Harris led the attack with 3-26 from eight overs.In the middle, Police struggled to put together partnerships. Kemol Savory, who was just selected to represent Guyana at this year’s 2019 Colonial Medical Super50 Cup, led the attack with 49 (3x6s), but he fell victim to medium pacer, Dexter George.A few other batsmen had starts, including the in-form Andrew Lyght Jr., who scored 26 at the top and Kevon Boodie (21), but George was in a no-nonsense mood as he decimated the middle order to pick up 5-25 from 6.5 overs.George’s exploits and two each from Nedd and Christian resulted in Police losing their last eight wickets for 53 runs (168 all out in 38.5 overs).last_img read more

UW’s Herbst fitting in nicely on mat

first_imgAt 6-foot-5, Dallas Herbst has a tendency to stick out like a sore thumb from the rest of the Wisconsin wrestling team.”Everybody thinks I play basketball,” Herbst said with a grin. “But I stopped doing that a long time ago.”Instead, Herbst and his rare height are fitting in quite nicely for the No. 8 Badgers. After redshirting last year, the Winneconne native is doing his best to replace 2005 All-American Ryan Flaherty — whose season is finished due to an unspecified injury — in the team’s lineup at the 197-pound weight class.”I think Dallas has done a great job as far as stepping up and filling those shoes,” UW head coach Barry Davis said. “And I think he wants to fill those shoes and he wants to be on that victory stand.”Herbst has done just that, compiling an 8-3 (including four pins) mark thus far. And he’s not letting the pressure of replacing the man who led Wisconsin in wins a season ago get to him.”Having him having an injury this year, and people are saying, ‘Oh, well, this is his replacement.’ Yeah, it’s kind of a little bit of pressure, but I think I can live up to it,” Herbst said.Success has always come quickly for Herbst on the mat. Just ask Winneconne High head coach Don Hale, who got to watch his pupil’s development first-hand.”His freshman year he started at 152, and we didn’t know exactly how good he was going to be,” Hale said. “And then the next thing we know, he’s qualifying for the state tournament.”But that freshman year was simply the opening chapter of one of the most decorated prep careers in Wisconsin high school history. After falling in the opening round of the state tournament as a freshman, Herbst moved up to 160 pounds and wrestled his way deep into the tournament, meeting up with a now familiar face to Wisconsin fans– Zach Hampton of the Badger football team, who was then a senior at Lancaster High School.”It was the semifinals, and he ended up beating me 14-0,” said Herbst, whose sophomore season ended with a record of 39-2. “It was probably the worst beating I’ve ever gotten in high school. He basically did everything I did to kids my junior and senior year to me.”Those junior and senior years included a combined perfect 85-0 record and a pair of Division II state titles at 189 pounds. That string of dominance also landed him firmly on the recruiting radar of Davis and the Wisconsin coaching staff.”He was on there real early,” Davis said. “We actually signed him in November [of 2003], so we signed him earlier than everybody else. We knew about him his junior year and going into his senior year, we knew that he was going to be a recruit for us, and we got on him early and signed him early in November.”Self-made successHerbst says wrestling at the Division I college level has been his dream since middle school and his strong work ethic allowed him to achieve that dream.”He’s one of these kids that I didn’t have to spend a lot of time with, because he had those goals set and he was going to work for those goals,” Hale said.That self-motivational quality has carried over to the college scene, where Davis says he has already established himself as a leader in just his second year on campus.”He’s the type of guy who you say things to, you say a few things to, he makes the adjustment,” Davis said. “I think that’s going to help him in his wrestling too come second half of the season and in his career, because he wants to learn, he’s willing to learn new things and willing to do what it takes to win. And I think to really be successful at the college level, if you’re self-motivated, it makes it easier to reach your accomplishments.”Taking a redshirt last season allowed Herbst to work on some of those adjustments — namely on his feet, something both he and Davis say is an ongoing process. However, wrestling unattached to a 19-2 record gave him a major boost of confidence “Coming into it, I was thinking, ‘OK, I don’t know.’ Kind of like when you’re a freshman in high school, you don’t know how you’re going to do in the new levels,” Herbst said. “Coming out of the year at 19-2 made me realize I could do it.”Brotherly loveOne constant source of inspiration for Herbst has been his older brother, Beau — an accomplished high school wrestler in his own right. In his time at Winneconne, the elder Herbst twice qualified for the state tournament, and was ranked No. 1 in his weight class during his senior year.”At that time he was probably the best wrestler in my school, in the history of our school,” the younger Herbst said. “So it made me just want to be good. I didn’t want to let my family name down I guess because he was doing so well — I didn’t want to be that guy. So I worked harder just to try to be as good as him, and I guess it’s helped, worked out.”Beau was also the reason Dallas got his start in wrestling — but it wasn’t to follow in his big brother’s footsteps oddly enough.”My brother was actually going into some meeting about wrestling and he ended up wanting to go to Boy Scouts instead, but I told my dad I wanted to wrestle, so that’s kind of how it started,” Herbst said.”A bright future”For now, Herbst is focused on one thing and one thing only — working with Davis to improve each and every day. The focal point of those efforts is improving his skill set and becoming more aggressive off the mat.”On my feet, I didn’t take many shots in high school, so I had to learn how to do that,” Herbst said. “I still need to get better on the bottom, which I need to work on.”Still, that willingness to learn and work has Davis hopeful that his young grappler will make the necessary adjustments.”I think he has a bright future, if he continues to learn and make adjustments in his wrestling style — because I know he’s self-motivated, it’s not a problem,” Davis said. “But at this level, to be successful, you have to make adjustments and learn new things year in and year out and put those adjustments to use, not just know that, but make them work and put them into your style. I think he’s willing to do that.”And, of course, Herbst’s rare size should continue to make him stand out over the next four years.”It’s definitely an advantage,” Herbst said. “There are some guys that are strong and some guys who are fast. But I’ve just got that length that just helps me out a little bit.”last_img read more

NCAA denies transfer waiver request for defensive tackle Raymon

first_img Published on September 18, 2012 at 9:43 pm Contact Chris: cjiseman@syr.edu | @chris_iseman John Raymon will have to wait to see the field for another year.The Syracuse defensive tackle had his application for a waiver request denied, head coach Doug Marrone said Thursday. The waiver would have allowed him to play this season, without having to sit out a year per NCAA transfer rules.Marrone didn’t mince his words when discussing his disappointment regarding the NCAA’s decision. He said the NCAA has granted the waiver to players in the past, so he said he couldn’t understand why the NCAA denied Raymon’s request.“I don’t agree with the NCAA’s decision, nor do I understand it,” Marrone said. “We believe that the NCAA should’ve granted that waiver, but that’s in the past now. I’ve advised John not to discuss it. This is the last that I will discuss it.”The 6-foot-5, 316 lb. Raymon transferred to Syracuse from Iowa during the summer, but didn’t play in any games while with the Hawkeyes.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith the denial of the waiver, he won’t play again until at least 2013.Throughout training camp, head coach Doug Marrone said the team was working with the NCAA to get all the necessary paperwork filed and processed, but repeatedly said he hadn’t heard any further updates regarding the NCAA’s decision.If Raymon had been able to play in 2012, he likely would’ve held a reserve role on Syracuse’s defensive line. During the preseason, the coaches prepared Raymon as if he was going to play, not sit out a year.During most practices, he spent some time off to the side working with Will Hicks, Syracuse’s assistant athletics director for athletic performance, doing strength and conditioning drills to help him get in better shape.The coaches spoke highly of Raymon’s ability and potential during the preseason.On Thursday, Marrone made it clear that the NCAA’s decision to deny the waiver had nothing to do with anything Raymond did.“I will tell you this, though, that John Raymon absolutely has done nothing wrong,” Marrone said. “The fact that he’s attending college, and has survived incredibly difficult challenges in his life, is really a testament to his character and his courage.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse avoids upset against Cornell in 16-13 win

first_imgDecked in a black and red vest, one Cornell fan’s screams during open introductions rang through the Carrier Dome. His blow horn, the outlet for his excitement, wasn’t supposed to be featured much throughout the game — Syracuse has defeated seven ranked opponents this season, and the unranked Big Red didn’t initially pose that same challenge.Yet, the man’s voice buzzed regularly on Tuesday. Cornell mounted a lead against a top-five team, and after fending off a second-half scoring run, it was in a position to upset the Orange with 15 minutes left. As some fans looked his way, the man’s voice was hard to disregard. His elation — one that lasted most of the game — gradually disappeared in the closing minutes. Cornell’s bid to knock off the Orange quickly evaporated.No. 5 Syracuse (14-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) eventually rebounded from its slow start to fend off Cornell (8-5, 4-1 Ivy) in its season finale. Despite a 4-0 deficit to start and a late second-half lead by the Big Red, SU responded to win its 14th game of the season in a 16-13 win on Senior Night. It wasn’t a late-game scoring run like against Notre Dame or eight goals in eight minutes against Connecticut, just a steady recovery from its lapses. Now, Syracuse heads into the ACC championship with its best record in five years.“We had a little rust left from the weekend, so it took us a bit to get going,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “Once our offense started getting fired up, I think things were good.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textComing off a loss in which Syracuse scored just five goals against North Carolina, the intense stares and usual silence in the stick check line all season shifted to a rarefied joy Tuesday, one that wouldn’t last long. That loose attitude was met with the Big Red winning the first three draws, all off of senior Julie Cross. SU’s offense found lanes in close, but they weren’t hitting nylon. “The first three shots hit off the pipe,” Gait said. “Three in a row. And we’re all sitting there like ‘Just like the weekend, oh my god.’”Gait’s head slumped on the first and immediately turned to the other side of the field on the second, assuming it would change possession. The care-free pregame had turned into assistant coach Caitlin Defliese yelling at midfielders on the sidelines. The Cornell lead widened to four, and Gait motioned for a timeout.“We would always come together,” attack Emily Hawryschuk said, “and tell each other ‘It’s gonna happen, it’s going to come to us.’”When the 10 minutes of stagnancy came to a halt and the SU offense responded, Cornell senior Sarah Phillips slammed both hands. She had just turned the ball over, and as she ran back into the play, trying to avoid a Syracuse scoring run, the Orange rushed to the net. After the SU goal, Phillips shook off her head coach on the sidelines.By the time Hawryschuk forced the Big Red goalie in and snuck a ball past her hip, the deficit had ended just as quickly as it started — in 10 minutes. But the trademark SU scoring run that catapulted it to wins over Northwestern and Florida was nonexistent.The man with the blow horn looked to his right and smiled to the people next to him as the halftime buzzer sounded. The score was still tied after 30 minutes, and Cornell, an unlikely competitor, was holding up.“You got to focus on playing the game, not just scoring,” Gait said.The Orange mounted their first lead of the game, up two early in the second frame. On one play, Ellie Walsh slinged a shot past Asa Goldstock, but a whistle rang. The man put his blow horn on his lap, just in case it was an errant foul call. There was none. As the announcement of the score from Walsh rang, his wait to lift up his horn ended in an extended “Ellie” cheer. A comeback, this time from Cornell, still loomed.Within reach, the Big Red started to dominate Morgan Widner and exposed the open spaces of Goldstock’s defense — beating her five-hole on one-hoppers or up top when her knees bent. Tied at 11, Olivia Jensen jumped on a loose ball on the turf. Reacting faster than Goldstock, she gave the Big Red the lead. The man stood from his seat position, and shouted toward his team — who was winning again.Sarah Cooper noticed they were dodging high and in the middle, so the freshman moved up that direction. When Cornell turnovers ensued — SU forced almost a turnover every two minutes — its offense, rejuvenated with more spacing, came alive, Morgan Alexander said. “Once we settled down, then it started to come back,” Gait said. After a Phillips turnover led to a SU goal and a subsequent lead, the man quickly put his jacket on and put his blow horn in a tote bag. A 5-1 stretch to close out the game provided the dagger Syracuse couldn’t find for the first 50 minutes and saved its season finale from disaster. Postgame, the slow start, and the blame, was placed on the reaction to Syracuse’s first loss in over a month three days prior. Tuesday’s game had little meaning in the standings, but it served as a reminder that the Orange, a team that was once was No. 3 in the nation, could be broken.“That could’ve been 25 goals if we shot better from the beginning,” Gait said. “… We just had a tough day.” Comments Published on April 16, 2019 at 9:13 pm Contact KJ: kjedelma@syr.edu | @KJEdelman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
