A session of the Executive Board of the Croatian Employers’ Association of the Nautical Sector Association was held at the Croatia Boat Show to discuss the adoption of the Maritime Property and Seaports Act, the increase in sojourn tax for boaters and the results of a meeting with representatives of the Ministry of Tourism. and when purchasing a vessel on lease.Roko Vuletić, President of the Executive Board, commented on the round table on the Law on Maritime Property and Seaports organized by the Association of the Nautical Sector, where representatives of the ministry announced some changes that are positive for nautical. For example, the abolition of the variable part of the concession fee, and the compensation of the old concessionaire in a certain percentage of the investment in certain cases. Regarding the issue of the commercial part of sports ports, a modality is required that would minimize the possibilities of manipulation. With regard to the commercial activity of ports open to public traffic, efforts will be made to reduce the percentage of such commercialization. When the working group adopts the draft law, it should go through the consultation procedure when the association has the opportunity to act with its comments, which is provided for in III. quarter of this year, Vuletic pointed out.Igor Mihajlov commented on the adoption of amendments to the Maritime Code, which does not sufficiently deal with nautical. “The amendments will address the issue of legal certainty and standardization of contracts specific to nautical activities. The intention is to apply general, legally established rules and provisions in the event that there are no concluded agreements, and in order to minimize the possibilities of interpretation of the rights and obligations of the opposing parties. ” Mihajlov pointed out. All present agreed to organizes a round table on this topic at the next nautical fair, to which all representatives of marinas should be invited, for whom this segment is very important.The Minister of Tourism did not attend the meeting held by the Croatian Employers’ Association with the Ministry of Tourism regarding the enormous increase in the sojourn tax for boaters.The proposal of the Nautical Sector Association is reduction of the lump sum of the sojourn tax for boaters because on the example of only three marinas that have 54 canceled ships in the three months of application of the Regulation, harmful effects on nautical tourism can be seen. Also, it is also considered wrong imposed obligation for marinas to collect the sojourn tax. Next week, if there are no changes in the desired direction, HUP will launch a stronger campaign to reduce the sojourn tax for sailors, enable the payment of sojourn tax per day for all categories, and equalize sailors with property owners in terms of lump sum sojourn tax.Related news:THE NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES OF THE DRASTIC INCREASE IN THE RESIDENCE TAX IN NAUTICS ARE ALREADY FEELED ON THE FIELD, AND WILL ONLY BE FELTRESEARCH ON CAPACITY AND BUSINESS OF NAUTICAL TOURISM PORTS, 2017THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA ADOPTED THE DECREE ON DETERMINING THE AMOUNT OF RESIDENCE TAX FOR 2018</p><br />

(Aug. 3) – IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car win number one on the season came Saturday at Eagle Raceway for Doug Lovegrove. Winning their second local features of the season were Clint Homan in the Hoosier Tire IMCA Modifieds and Shawn Harker in the Sam’s Club IMCA Northern SportMods. “It’s been way too long. We’ve been having motor problems all year. This is only the third race I’ve finished this season,” he said. “I’m pretty good around the bottom and it was a good track tonight. I think that’s why I was able to run away a little bit. I got lucky on some of the traffic. The guys decided to run a lane up when I got to them.” Lovegrove started on the pole and was quickly out front. Mike Boston passed Chase Weiler for third on lap seven with Adam Gullion moving up to fourth. From there to the finish it was a tale of two different lines with Lovegrove hugging the bottom and Brandon Horton, Boston and Gullion pounding the cushion. Lovegrove moved through the lapped traffic and extended his lead at the end to a straightaway with Horton coming home second, Boston third and Gullion fourth.

(Image: Reach for a Dream)• Reach for a [email protected] Melissa Jane CookFor more than 26 years, the Reach for a Dream Foundation has brought hope and joy to severely ill South African children. The foundation, a non-profit organisation, believes in the power of dreams and in encouraging children to use their dreams to fight their life-threatening illnesses. It seeks as far as possible to make these children’s dreams come true.It fulfils the dreams and ambitions of children between the ages of three and 18 years who have been diagnosed with terrible sickness. Children from all income groups are helped, and there is no discrimination of any race, colour, culture, creed or financial status. Life-threatening illness includes, for example, all forms of cancer, blood disorders, cystic fibrosis, and kidney failure, among many others.The organisation does not refer to the children as terminally ill or dying. It rather uses the term “life-threatening” because many of the children do survive their illness – possibly as a result of the “power of their dreams”.It believes that no child should live without hope. Childhood can be the most magical time of life, filled with dreams, aspirations and most of all, fun. Unfortunately for many children with a life-threatening illness, the magic of childhood may be lost in the emotional, physical and financial strain of dealing with their illness. The foundation tries to alleviate some of this strain, which often affects the whole family, by creating a different environment for the child – one that is not focused on her or his illness. It would like the children to find their laughter again and therein find the strength to live beyond their illnesses.But there are some parameters: Reach for a Dream fulfils dreams that in no way pose any threat or harm to these already compromised children. Also, rather than fulfilling dreams for financial assistance, educational support or medical assistance, it encourages the children to stretch their imaginations and dream beyond their greatest expectations.Reach for a Dream FoundationDream projectsIn addition to fulfilling individual dreams, the foundation works on projects with groups of sick children. On such event is “Queen for a Day”, during which the foundation spoils young girls lavishly for a day. There is also “Captain Courage”, on which young boys are taken to do activities that they enjoy, such as deep sea fishing and on helicopter rides. For those who are able to be away from home or hospital, there are weekend camps for large groups of children called “Camp Sunshine”. For those who are too sick to leave hospital, there are clown entertainers called “Jabulani” who visit the children in hospital.The inspiration to start Reach for a Dream came from an article on the American group, Make – A – Wish Foundation. Owen Parnell, a former president of the Randburg Rotary Club, was struck by the opportunity to establish a similar venture in South Africa. On 7 July 1988, the organisation made its very first dream come true. And so the journey of dream fulfilment began. Its first dreamer, JC Steinman, was treated to a wonderful birthday party with rides on a pony and a motorcycle.Officially named the Reach for a Dream Foundation in 1991, the organisation defined its core purpose as “fulfilling the dreams of children of any race, colour and creed between the ages of three and 18 faced with a life-threatening illness”. It truly believes that it is contributing to creating the future of this country: if you can beat a life-threatening illness as a child, imagine what you can achieve as an adult.
\R Paris, Jul 16 (AP) It was a victory for all of France and the home crowd did it justice, pouring into Paris’ Champs-Elysees Avenue by the tens of thousands to celebrate in an explosion of joy.France’s 4-2 win over Croatia in the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday marked the second time in 20 years that France has won the World Cup, and came at a time when the people feel needy.”It represents enormous things,” said Goffrey Hamsik, dressed in a hat resembling a rooster – the French national symbol – and a shirt with the No. 10 for Kylian Mpappe, the 19-year-old breakout star who hails from the Paris suburb of Bondy.”We’ve had lots of problems in France these past years,” he said, recalling deadly terror attacks. “This is good for the morale … Here, we are all united. We mix. There is no religion, there is nothing, and that’s what feels good.” People wrapped in flags and dressed in crazy hats, and one man spotted totally nude except for the tricolor, marched down the avenue where France displayed its military might a day earlier for Bastille Day.Revelers set off smoke bombs in the national colors – blue, white and red – obscuring Napoleon’s triumphal arch. People climbed atop every newspaper kiosk and bus stop in the area to wave flags and lead the crowds below in cheers. The national anthem, the Marseillaise, rang out, cars honked horns and cherry bombs cracks.A young man sprayed a fire extinguisher on the crowd on a late hot afternoon.Hundreds of police in riot gear were discretely lined up on side streets to monitor revelers.advertisementTypically, celebrations in France end up with some broken shop windows and other destruction, and Sunday was no exception. Tear gas was lobbed at one point on the Champs-Elysees. About 4,000 police watched over the fan zone – packed to its 90,000 capacity – during the match, then moved to the Champs-Elysees and neighboring streets.As night fell, The Eiffel Tower flashed 1998-2018 to mark France’s two World Cup titles.The Arc de Triomph was awash in the national colors, lit with the rooster, the faces of the winning team and the words “Proud to be Blue,” or French.The celebrations were spread across the nation.For all the crazy antics – and some revelers who got out of control – a sense of patriotism and unity was almost visceral.Antoine Griezmann, the France striker who scored one of the goal’s Sunday, told a news conference two days before the final, televised on BFM TV, that pride in country is in short supply.”We say it so little … We should be proud to be French,” Griezmann said.Mahmoud Bourassi was among those taking a longer-term view and he had some sobering thoughts about France’s run to the title and the festivities it has sparked.Bourassi runs a youth center in Bondy – Mbappe’s home that was among those scarred by riots in 2005 that exposed the fissures of France that have yet to heal – and he knows the teenage star of the tournament.”All this euphoria and effervescence, it’s positive but it’s emotional and ephemeral,” he said ahead of France’s win. Bourassi said sports is a “catalyst to bring people and nations together.” But, he added, it must be built on.”What we’re seeing is magic, exceptional. But what are we going to do with it tomorrow?” That is a question for President Emmanuel Macron, who was in Moscow celebrating with the team on victory night, and will receive the squad more formally on Monday at the presidential Elysee Palace.Revelers celebrated the moment.”We’re happy. It took 20 years … It’s the pride of the nation. It unites everyone. It federates,” Frederique Pourquet said as she and her friend left the Champs-Elysees.The win “shows that the French people are consolidated and the work of all France,” said Omar Bzi.Hajar Maghnaoui, of Asnieres, north of Paris, said “It’s a way to bring the French people together, and also the world.” (AP) APAAPA
