first_imgPhoto: HTZ Considering the intensified promotion of the Croatian continental tourist offer, a special presentation of Zagreb and Slavonia was held as part of the fair. It is also important to point out that the Croatian tourist offer is presented at the largest exhibition stand so far, the second largest at the entire fair in Munich, just behind the hosts of the Bavarians. Which is certainly commendable because we either play the game or not, and since this is our main emitting market, the focus must be on the best possible presentation. The Croatian tourist offer is also appearing at the fair this year f.re.e, jednom od najvažnijih turističkih sajmova u Njemačkoj i nama glavnoj emitivnoj regiji – Bavarskoj, a koji se ove godine održava do 24. veljače u Münchenu.  He also attended the gathering Giovanne Elber, legend FC Bayern Munich te Andreas Jung, marketing director of this most popular German football club. He also supported the promotion of Slavonia with his specialties and food preparation official chef Fiery Tomica Đukić, otherwise the chef of Hotel Osijek.  The importance of the Bavarian market is also emphasized by Nera Miličić, head of the CNTB Office in Munich. “Bavaria is very important for Croatian tourism because it generates almost half of all arrivals of German guests in Croatia. That is why we are especially pleased that we and our partners have successfully held the largest presentation of the Croatian continent on such an important market.”, Said Milicic. Selimir Ognjenović from ID Riva Tours emphasizes that this is the year in which Croatian tourism should defend its market position on the German market. “Germany is a very large market, the most important for Croatian tourism. That is why we must defend the market position of our country and do everything to keep Croatia at the successful figures of the past years. Large and high-quality presentations like this one in Munich will definitely help”, Ognjenović thinks.  As part of the stand of the Croatian Tourist Board, a total of 25 co-exhibitors present their offer at the fair, including the Dubrovnik-Neretva, Šibenik-Knin and Krapina-Zagorje counties, the cities of Zagreb and Novalja, Slavonia Cluster, Makarska Riviera Cluster and Valalta, Solaris, Hadria. Camps of Dalmatia, KUH, Camping Village Simuni, Novasol, Plitvice holiday resort, Aminess, Jadrolinija, Jadranka camps, Hotels Njivice, Maistra, Mon Perin, Casa Nube, Zaton holiday resort, Ilirija and Campiste bi village. “Germany, as our traditional market, with an emphasis on Bavaria, where we have the largest number of visitors, in recent years has shown significant interest in destinations in the Croatian interior and I am glad that we are visitors to this year’s fair f.re.e. had the opportunity to further present the richness of Croatian continental tourism, Zagreb and Slavonia. We notice that the Bavarian market is showing a kind of change and that Croatia is increasingly recognizing Croatia as an air destination instead of a traditional car destination. Namely, last year the turnover of passengers from Germany in airports was two million, and we believe that the positive trends will continue this year as well. “, said Minister Cappelli. “We designed a rich and original program of events at the Croatian stand that attracted the attention of many visitors. This was also a confirmation of a well-designed cooperation with the Tourist Board of Istria and FC Bayern Munich, which provided us with additional promotional value and visibility in the extremely important Bavarian market from which every other German guest comes. “, commented director Staničić, adding that in cooperation with another partner, the media house Münchner Merkur, we organize “Evening of Slavonia and Zagreb“In the center of Munich in the hall of the former printing house of this largest Bavarian daily newspaper.  During the fair, the Croatian delegation met with numerous German partners, such as Fti, one of the largest tour operators, Lust on Croatia, a portal that specializes in promoting the Croatian tourist offer and  IDRiva Tours, a tour operator that specializes in the sale of Croatia and which was among the first to include Slavonia in its sales catalogs.  The Croatian stand was visited by the legend of the football club Bayern Munich / Evening of Slavonia and Zagreb “We are extremely pleased to present our Slavonia to numerous partners and the German audience, which we presented as the most beautiful Croatian tourist secret, and our capital Zagreb, a three-time winner of the award for the best Advent in Europe.”, said director Staničić.

Brazil stands by hydroxychloroquine despite WHO

first_imgBrazil’s health ministry said Monday it would not change its recommendation to treat coronavirus with hydroxychloroquine, despite the World Health Organization deciding to suspend trials of the drug over safety concerns.Like his US counterpart Donald Trump, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has touted the supposed benefits of hydroxychloroquine and a related drug, chloroquine, against the new coronavirus.Studies, however, have questioned their safety and efficacy against the disease, including one published Friday in respected medical journal The Lancet that found the drugs actually increased the risk of death. That led the WHO to suspend a worldwide clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 treatment Monday.”We’re remaining calm and there will be no change” to the Brazilian guideline issued last week, health ministry official Mayra Pinheiro told a news conference.The guideline recommended doctors in the public health system prescribe either chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine from the onset of COVID-19 symptoms.It was issued shortly after the resignation of former health minister Nelson Teich, who reportedly quit over Bolsonaro’s insistence on pushing the drugs despite a lack of solid evidence. Topics :center_img He was Brazil’s second health minister in less than a month.Brazil, the Latin American country hit hardest by the pandemic, has emerged as the latest flashpoint, with nearly 375,000 cases — the second-highest in the world, after the United States — and more than 23,000 deaths.Experts say under-testing means the real figures are probably far higher.Hydroxychloroquine is typically used to treat autoimmune diseases, while chloroquine is generally used against malaria.Preliminary studies in China and France had generated hope the drugs might be effective against the new coronavirus.That led governments to buy them in bulk. Trump even said last week he was taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure, though he said Sunday he had finished his course of treatment.Pinheiro questioned the Lancet study, which analyzed the medical records of 96,000 patients across hundreds of hospitals.”It wasn’t a clinical trial, it was just a data set collected from different countries, and that doesn’t meet the criteria of a methodologically acceptable study to serve as a reference for any country in the world, including Brazil,” she said.last_img read more

Arteta: Squad strength vital for Arsenal

first_img The 31-year-old Spaniard, who came on as a late substitute for Aaron Ramsey, feels strength in depth will be vital. “We want players who are in the squad that can contribute and help the team to be successful. Every member of the squad is important and Nicklas is no different,” said Arteta. “He is an Arsenal player and while he is here, he will give 100 per cent. He will not be thinking or doing anything different. I think he likes playing here. “He has been working so hard since he joined us in pre-season, he got his chance against Hull and scored a very good goal.” There is little respite ahead for Arsenal who host fifth-placed Everton on Sunday, then face a difficult away assignment against Napoli for their final Champions League group match before a crunch clash at Manchester City on Saturday lunchtime. Arteta, though, insists the Gunners squad are brimming with confidence as they chase down a first trophy since 2005. “The difference to previous years is we are top of the league when by now we would be 10 or 12 points behind whoever was first before, that is a big difference,” he said. “The confidence and atmosphere is different and we want to maintain that. Press Association “Does it matter we don’t have the experience of winning the title before? No – as long as you have the quality, the ambition and togetherness that we have, I think we are in a good position to do it. “That is where we are and I think the Christmas period is going to be massively important.” German forward Lukas Podolski is set to join in with the first-team squad again as he steps up recovery from a hamstring injury, while Walcott could come into contention to start this weekend after being ill in the build-up to the Hull match. Midfielder Mathieu Flamini, meanwhile, is reported to have tweaked his groin on Wednesday night, and so will be assessed. With his forward options now boosted, Wenger again indicated he may not hit the January sales looking for another striker. Bendtner admits it has been “difficult” watching from the bench as Arsenal stormed to the top of the Premier League, but remains ready for whenever his next chance comes along. The 25-year-old Denmark forward could have left Arsenal in the last transfer window following several largely unsuccessful loan spells and he then hit the headlines with his off-field behaviour last month following a police caution for causing damage to an apartment building where he lives. Wenger feels Bendtner has the attributes to produce consistent performances if he is fully focused. “It is good to see that we can rely on Bendtner and he can come up with a performance,” Wenger said on Arsenal Player. “Everybody has done well. I feel for me it is easy and difficult. “Easy because no matter who plays, comes in and does very well, difficult because I have always to leave players out who deserve to play, but the attitude and togetherness is great, so that helps.” Hull boss Steve Bruce, meanwhile, accepted it was always going to be “a big ask” for his side to reproduce the type of performance which had seen them beat Liverpool 3-1 at home on Sunday. “You need the intensity and after Sunday, of course, we don’t have the luxury to make five or six changes,” he said. “But we still showed a little bit of something because we stuck at it. “At least we had a great resilience and never gave up, which is what you require from your team.” Arsenal will need every member of their squad to perform when called upon if they are to last the distance in the Barclays Premier League title race, according to midfielder Mikel Arteta. Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner, standing in for rested leading frontman Olivier Giroud, scored his first Arsenal goal since March 2011 when he headed the Gunners in front after just 90 seconds against Hull at the Emirates Stadium on the way to a 2-0 win. The result keeps Arsenal four points clear of nearest challengers Chelsea at the top of the table, and was achieved despite manager Arsene Wenger making several changes to the starting XI. The likes of England trio Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs were on the bench, along with club captain Thomas Vermaelen and vice-skipper Arteta. last_img read more
