The removal of ATMs from the historic core has begun in Dubrovnik


first_imgLinked news: Photo: City of Dubronvik Photo: City of Dubrovnik The city of Dubrovnik is the first Croatian city to regulate the issue of setting up ATMs with their acts, which began to ruin the appearance of UNESCO’s monumental heritage with excessive numbers. These are ATMs that the owners themselves decided to remove in accordance with the Decision based on the Amendments to the Decision on Communal Order, which the City of Dubrovnik prescribed a ban on placing ATMs and other devices in openings in buildings in the historic center. Some have already decided to remove improperly installed devices themselves and thus avoid paying high fines. Penalties will be issued on a daily basis in case of non-compliance with the Decision, and can go up to HRK 200.000 million for legal entities and up to HRK XNUMX for natural persons.center_img Two ATMs that were set up in Široka Street without the permission of the conservator and for which the Municipal Police of the City of Dubrovnik issued a Decision on removal, were removed from this location. As they point out from the city of Dubrovnik, after the adoption of the decision by the City Council, administrative procedures were carried out which included ATMs without valid approvals. After the expiration of the 30-day deadline, if the decision is not followed, the Municipal Police of the City of Dubrovnik will repeatedly punish violators. AFTER DUBROVNIK AND ROVINJ INTRODUCED SPECIAL CONDITIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION OF ATMS IN THE OLD CENTER FROM NEXT SUMMER, DAILY FLIGHTS BETWEEN DUBROVNIK AND PHILADELPHIA ARE INTRODUCED last_img read more

Powered by Firework Bowlers Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav have been putting on a great performance in the second series of Test Matches. While  Sharma claimed a total of 9 wickets, Yadav claimed 8. The bowlers have been generous enough to share their secrets regarding their bowling resurgence. Both claimed that it was the change in their grip that made all the difference.Advertisement The Day-Night Test match between India and Bangladesh held on Sunday, saw Indian bowlers Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav go hard on Bangladeshi batsmen. They were responsible for disqualifying several Bangladeshi players. Sharma took 9 players out of the game and Yadav bowled over 8 wickets. Advertisement Sharma changed his wrist position slightly to create different angles which put left-handed batsmen at a disadvantage. He further said it was difficult for him to aim and bowl at the stumps before, but now it is possible. Sharma brought an end to 4 Bangladeshi batsman’s time on the field in the first innings and took 4 more players out in the second innings. Talking to the Indian opener, Rohit Sharma, Yadav was quoted as saying Advertisement “My grip was different earlier so one or two balls will swing while a couple of them would either get deflected from the legs or run down the leg side for boundaries as byes, so it was difficult to control in this grip.” With a change in his grip, Yadav can now bowl inswingers as well as outswingers.

Monmouth Park Racing to the Top as a Destination Venue


first_imgDennis Drazin is the CEO of Darby Development, the operator of Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport. Photo By Bill Denver/EQUI-PHOTO The battle to overturn PASPA took six years of litigation that ultimately succeeded when the U.S. Supreme Court declared it unconstitutional in May 2018, allowing individual states to set their own rules. When racing begins at the track in May, the roster of additional events will include food truck festivals, concerts and other opportunities for on-site fun. Darby is partnering with Legends Hospitality, LLC for food and beverage services for racetrack venues with the exception of the Blue Grotto, a popular beer garden and live music venue already drawing a crowd at the racetrack. “That will be a prime part of the activity this summer,” Drazin said. The transformation has come about through the efforts of Red Bank attorney Dennis Drazin, chairman and CEO of Darby Development, LLC, operator of Monmouth Park; the support of the state; and the backing of the Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the thoroughbred industry. “I didn’t sit idle,” Drazin said. Former state Sen. Raymond Lesniak (D-20) strongly supported the proposal, Drazin said. Several years ago, the future of Monmouth Park was precarious.  After hearing the arguments before the Supreme Court in December 2017, Drazin felt confident in the outcome.  The future of Monmouth Park has implications far beyond its boundaries. The racetrack is the largest employer and the largest taxpayer in its hometown of Oceanport. “With sports betting comes new opportunities to market to your customer in different ways,” Drazin said. “You want to try to establish a crossover.” Drazin, who had served as counsel and advisor to the Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association for many years and as president of the group for two terms, led the organization in leasing the facility from the state. In 2012, the group entered into a long-term lease with the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority. Drazin’s company partnered with William Hill, the oldest bookmaker business in the world, to create the first sports book at Monmouth Park. The racing industry is also benefiting from $100 million in state funding to be paid out over a five-year period based on the industry demonstrating significant progress in generating revenues; 2019 was the first year the subsidy was in effect. “The higher purses we were able to create as a result of the added revenue made a significant difference,” Drazin said. “The breeding industry got a shot in the arm with 30 or 40 more brood mares coming in to New Jersey.” By Eileen Moon “Monmouth Park was the one (racing facility) in New Jersey that was willing to take on this battle,” Drazin said.  But a formidable hurdle remained. In order to operate a sports betting facility, proponents needed to overturn a federal law, the Professional and Amateur Sports Betting Protection Act (PASPA) of 1992, which outlawed sports betting in all but a few states. In a budget-cutting measure, then-Gov. Chris Christie ended subsidies to the racetrack, announcing that he wanted New Jersey’s racing venues to privatize or close. Knowing it was unlikely they’d succeed in bringing a casino to Monmouth Park, Drazin approached the governor and legislature with the idea of instituting sports betting. To bolster the state’s struggling casinos and racetracks, the legislature adopted a constitutional amendment that legalized sports betting.  At its official opening June 14, 2018, Drazin said, “There were thousands of people that showed up at Monmouth Park, and Gov. Murphy made the first bet. We were the first sports book to open in the state and for the first time in many years, I saw a solution to the problem (of maintaining the racetrack). Sports betting produced enough of a profit that I felt we could at least break even.” Vast, with Joe Bravo riding, left, won the Hollywood Wildcat Stakes for Two-Year-Old Fillies at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, on Sept. 22, 2019. Photo By Bill Denver/EQUI-PHOTO. Wagering and gaming opportunities continue to evolve with technology and Monmouth Park plans to stay ahead of the curve with innovative ideas that include bets that combine racing and sports, fixed odds wagering and exchange wagering, which allows people to bet after the horses are out of the gate and before they cross the finish line. “I began plans to renovate the racetrack for what I anticipated to be larger crowds than the first venue could handle,” he said.  Citing a study by the Rutgers Equine Science Center, the horse industry in New Jersey is responsible for 13,000 jobs and the preservation of some 222,000 acres of open space that might otherwise fall to development. “Even though it was illegal, sports betting was a $400 billion a year business in the U.S.,” Drazin said. “It’s not like people weren’t doing it.” Once at risk of closure and potential development, the historic home of the sport of kings is successfully reinventing itself as a destination for sports wagering and entertainment while it maintains its status as a premier venue for thoroughbred racing. OCEANPORT – Now in its second year, sports betting at Monmouth Park appears to be paying off in a big way.  “Without that, the industry would not have survived,” said Drazin, who traces his lifelong interest in horse racing back to his childhood years accompanying his father to Monmouth Park. Plans are now in the works to add another state-of-the-art sports book facility on the valet parking side of the racetrack. Scheduled to open in 2021, it will be an “upscale, Las Vegas-style, sports book,” Drazin said. While it won’t feature casino-style table games or slots, he said, “it will be almost like a typical sports book you would have in a casino in Las Vegas.” It’s critical for Monmouth Park to succeed in attracting a younger demographic who will help the facility endure for many years to come, Drazin noted. “We want to create a fun environment where customers want to spend time.” “They were losing money,” Drazin said. “They were struggling to survive.” As the litigation made its way through the courts, Drazin’s development company embarked on enhancing the offerings at Monmouth Park, renovating a former cafeteria to serve as a sports bar where customers could watch games and engage in some limited, legal forms of sports wagering.last_img read more

PALOS VERDES STAKES QUOTES


first_imgTRAINER QUOTES -30- MARK CASSE, CONQUEST TWO STEP, WINNER: “They set it up nice for him. I was smiling pretty big down the backside (at the fractions) watching those three go at it. I thought he was a big price based on his last effort, but I understand everybody likes to see two in a row. I kind of like it myself. When they run a big race, you want to see them come back and do it again.”Next race? “I don’t know. We’ll enjoy this one today and hopefully try to win another one.” JOCKEY QUOTES JEFF BONDE, DISTINCTIV PASSION, FOURTH: “One hole, no good.” NOTES: The winning owners are Ernie Semersky and Dory Newel of Highland Park, Illinois, who race as Conquest Stables LLC. JOE TALAMO, CONQUEST TWO STEP, WINNER: “He had a perfect trip. I was very happy to see three horses in a speed duel. I just stayed outside and he wasn’t even getting any dirt in his face. What a race he ran. We were high on his last race, when he ran second to Shared Belief (in the Grade I Malibu) and I know a lot of people thought it was a fluke but he really ran that same race again today.“It feels good to get my third win today. It’s not the first time I’ve started a meet slow; I was zero for eighty one time at this meet. It’s just a part of the game. You have to keep your head up and keep working hard. It’s not what you’re doing when you win, it’s what you do when you’re losing. You have to stay focused and keep a good mind-set.”MIKE SMITH, DISTINCTIV PASSION, FOURTH: “I didn’t have a lot of options and I didn’t get a breather, not one. His last race (Grade III Midnight Lute Dec. 27) when I was on the outside, I was able to let Heir of Storm challenge me on the inside; I just sat out there. Today, I was down on the rail and they were on top of me the whole way. Other than that, he ran a good race today.”last_img read more

How To: Annotate Images from Wikipedia


first_imgsteven walling Tags:#How To#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting You may not know it, but most of the images in Wikipedia are actually hosted on its sister project, Wikimedia Commons. If you find a favorite image on the encyclopedia that anyone can edit, click through and you’ll quickly find yourself at its original page at the Commons project. With over 4.9 million freely-licensed media files, it’s a treasure trove that supplies nearly all of the photos for Wikipedia. Now you can annotate images from Wikimedia Commons in a fashion very similar to Flickr. The big difference with the new feature is that annotations can be added by anyone, and no account is necessary. While they don’t show up directly in Wikipedia yet, a new version of the system that will appear in the free encyclopedia is under development.Anyone can currently add notes to images from Commons, and changes to them are patrolled for malicious content just like any text you might add to Wikipedia. If you’re familiar with adding notes to Flickr or any other photo sharing site, then this should be a no brainer for you. Once you find the image you want, either by clicking through from Wikipedia or searching Wikimedia Commons directly, just click the “add note” button underneath any image on its own page. Then type in your text and either preview or save it. In addition to simple text notes, you can include wiki markup to add links or for styling, and if your annotation fails then you can add it manually through editing the page’s code. The image annotation gadget is basically just some JavaScript written by a Wikimedia volunteer and made standard on the site. If you’re a regular user and you don’t like the boxes showing up on your images, then you can turn it off via your user preferences. The advantage to logging in to add notes is that a history of all your annotations will show up in your user contributions history. According to the project’s FAQ, a version will soon be available for use directly within Wikipedia.center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

On Not Fighting Fires


first_imgThere is a particular disposition some people possess that causes them to shift their focus, regardless of their role, from proactive to reactive. There are all sorts of benefits for holding this disposition, many of which are psychological, including solving problems, creating value for others, doing exciting work, receiving praise and recognition, and constant variety. The disposition is one of being a firefighter.The firefighter is called to put down a blaze that, left unaddressed, would cause some harm, great or small. The firefighter prides themselves on their ability to put out the fire, occasionally stomping out the fire, but more often than not leaving the burning embers to reignite another conflagration. After fighting the fire, the firefighter waits patiently for the next emergency, so she can rush into action, an act she continuously repeats.You can become addicted to fighting fires, and when you do, you will almost certainly have given up doing the proactive work necessary for producing the outcomes you are charged with delivering. How could one possibly find time to do their job when all these fires require your attention?Those adept at fighting back the inferno, large or small, will always find others with fires who request their aid, eliminating or resolving their challenge. Surely no one could extinguish the dumpster fire of their making without the firefighter.Between urgencies and emergencies, there is no time for any proactive work, least of all the kind that would prevent the fires from occurring in the first place, like clearing the brush that creates an environment conducive to fire. There are no processes put in place to prevent systemic and recurring problems, nor is there training others to solve the day-to-day challenges of their role. Get the Free eBook!
