The 2nd International Conference “Emigrant Tourism” is being held in Split

first_img“The solutions we find today will determine the discourse and direction for the future of our Homeland”, Reads the invitation of the Organizing Committee. Precisely with the aim of connecting and sharing experience and knowledge from the diaspora and for the diaspora in Split at the Milesi Palace, on May 17 and 18, 2019, the Second International Conference “Emigrant Tourism” is being organized. Conference in Split programmatically cover various topics: – Success stories of returnees who have invested in Croatian tourism – Croatian dream – Past and future of Croatian returnees – Tourism and investments in the diaspora – Health and wellness tourism – Croatia as a brand – Diaspora culture shock – Integration in Croatian companies – Croatian startups in tourism – Pitch session – innovative Croatian companies – Creation of a tourist product and cooperation of the tourist industry – Diaspora tourism development niches: culture, creativity and events Find out more about the conference “Emigrant Tourism” HERE The organization of the conference is signed by the Center for Research of Croatian Emigrants, and co-organized by: Ivo Pilar Institute of Social Sciences, Split branch, Croatian Chamber of Commerce and Bagatin Polyclinic.center_img Can our diaspora be one of the opportunities for the development of our economy, tourism, and especially health tourism? It certainly can and must. Our diaspora must be one of our main ambassadors and links to the global market, as it is in other developing and smart countries. The Center for the Study of Croatian Emigration is the organizer of various professional and scientific gatherings, conferences and congresses dedicated to emigration, which reflect, analyze and present the causes, consequences and situation and current trends in Croatia and its emigrants around the world. According to the CNB, the diaspora sends over 2 billion euros a year to Croatia, which is a share of about five percent of Croatia’s GDP. However, the mentioned amount is without real investments in our economy, and for which there is great interest. The Diaspora wants to primarily invest and help, but we can never connect the dots and establish a quality dialogue. We have been spinning in a circle for years, without real progress. last_img read more

Sanofi eyes approval of COVID-19 vaccine by first half of 2021

first_img“There are companies moving faster, but let us be brutally clear, speed has three downsides,” he said of competition.”They are using existing work, in many cases done for SARS; it is likely not to be as efficacious; and there is no guarantee on supply in large volumes,” Hudson said.The probability of success for Sanofi is “higher than anybody else,” the CEO said.The comments echoed those of GSK, whose chief medical officer for vaccines told Reuters on Friday the company was aiming at quality before speed.Sanofi, whose Pasteur vaccines division has a long established reputation, notably in flu, is currently working on two vaccine projects.One uses an adjuvant made by GSK to potentially boost its efficacy. It has received financial support from the US Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).The other, being developed with US company Translate Bio Inc, relies on a different technology known as mRNA, similar to the Moderna approach.Clinical trials of the vaccine developed with GSK, described as a recombinant vaccine because of the use of GSK’s boosting adjuvant, are to start in September. Trials of the mRNA vaccine candidate should begin around the end of the year, the company said.Sanofi said it had capacity to produce up to 1 billion doses a year of its recombinant vaccine, and that it would be able to supply up to 360 million doses of its mRNA vaccine annually.In April, Sanofi said it had manufacturing capacity for 600 million doses for its recombinant vaccine, with the ambition to double production by mid-2021.The company also said it would expand its collaboration with Translate Bio on developing vaccines, in a deal which will give the US group $425 million in upfront payments. Topics : French drugmaker Sanofi SA said on Tuesday it expects to get approval for the potential COVID-19 vaccine it is developing with Britain’s GlaxoSmithKline Plc by the first half of next year, faster than previously anticipated.Sanofi, which is hosting a virtual research and development event, and GSK had said in April the vaccine, if successful, would be available in the second half of 2021.”We are being guided by our dialogue with regulatory authorities,” Sanofi research chief John Reed told reporters, when asked about the accelerated time frame.center_img There are currently no vaccines to prevent the coronavirus that has infected more than 9 million people and killed over 469,000 globally, and only a couple of medicines that have demonstrated benefit in hospitalized COVID-19 patients in clinical trials.Many drugmakers are racing to come up with a safe and effective vaccine that can be produced at large scale.Moderna Inc, the University of Oxford in collaboration with AstraZeneca Plc, and an alliance of BioNTech and Pfizer Inc grabbed headlines by moving to human trials as early as March.Sanofi Chief Executive Paul Hudson said the firsts in the race now were not assured of securing victory.last_img read more

Jobs hemorrhaging persists even as US economy recovers

first_imgFlight attendant Kristine Lambiris kept working after her husband lost his job when the coronavirus shut businesses across the United States, but as of Thursday evening she has now been furloughed herself.”We’re both pretty scared,” said Lambiris, a United Airlines employee and member of the Association of Flight Attendants trade union. “I don’t want to have to be on unemployment and I don’t want to be taking money away from other people.”This week’s expiration of job-saving federal aid to airlines has set the stage for another round of mass layoffs in the world’s largest economy, where COVID-19 has already caused tens of millions of people to lose their work. Yet a Labor Department survey due to be released Friday is expected to show the economy adding 800,000 jobs in September, with the unemployment rate declining to 8.2 percent, though it will be based on data taken prior to this week’s cuts.The report will be the last before President Donald Trump faces off with his Democratic challenger Joe Biden in the November elections, and comes as the US economy finds itself at a crossroads six months into the pandemic.Key sectors have begun recovering from the coronavirus shock even as layoffs remain commonplace, but with lawmakers in Washington deadlocked on additional stimulus spending, the question now is whether that progress can be sustained.”Even without stimulus, we could eke out gains that are better than people expect,” corporate economist Robert Frick at Navy Federal Credit Union said of the employment report. “But we don’t want to eke.” Topics :center_img Bounce back or grind on?The business shutdowns beginning in March to stop the spread of Covid-19 sent the unemployment rate to 14.7 percent in April, though it has since decreased.Congress’s passage of the US$2.2 trillion CARES Act in March has been credited with stemming some of the bleeding. Airlines hit hard by the drop-off in travel demand were given aid in exchange for keeping workers on their payrolls through the end of September.The CARES Act also supported consumer spending by providing the droves of unemployed workers an extra $600 per week in assistance, a massive financial cushion for lower-paid workers.”What I was bringing home every two weeks at the zoo, I was getting every week of unemployment,” said Nashawn Cooper, who was let go from his job at the Atlanta zoo as the pandemic struck.But Congress and the Trump administration couldn’t agree on an extension and the extra payments expired at the end of July, cutting Cooper’s benefits down to just $160 per week – just enough to pay the bills. Democrats and Republicans have resumed negotiating this week but it was too late for the airlines, which watched the September 30 deadline pass without the aid they’d pleaded for from Congress.American Airlines has since announced it will furlough 19,000 workers, and United 13,000.Lambiris, who lives in southern California near Disneyland, expects to have to compete for job openings with some of the 28,000 people Disney said this week it would lay off.”I don’t think the job will be like anything I want,” she said. “It won’t make up for the salary, for sure.”Signs of hopeAnalysts warn the impasse over stimulus will catch up with the US economy eventually.Already, Commerce Department data released this week showed more Americans dipping into their savings in August, the first full month without the expanded unemployment benefits.And the Labor Department data reported 837,000 new claims made for jobless benefits last week, still higher than the worst week of the 2008-2010 global financial crisis.However Frick said indicators like a surge in applications for new businesses as well as data on restaurant reservations, car sales and travel show that some sectors are recovering, bringing jobs along with them.”One of the things I think forecasters sometimes miss is how innovative the economy is turning out to be,” he said.The state of Georgia was among the first to reopen its economy after the shutdowns, and Cooper said he’s seen lots of job openings, particularly among retailers.”I’m not relaxing, I’m not sitting back and saying I don’t have to work,” he said.Cooper is meeting with a prospective employer next week, but said, “If that doesn’t work out, I’m continuing to look for a job.”last_img read more

Risk brings less reward for UK charity returns in 2014

first_imgCautious investing paid off more than high-risk strategies for UK charity portfolios last year, according to preliminary figures from Asset Risk Consultants (ARC).It is the first time since 2011 that lower-risk portfolios have performed better than their higher-risk counterparts.Graham Harrison, managing director at ARC, said: “With the mainstream equity markets recording returns ranging from marginally positive (UK equities) to circa 9% (US equities), 2014 will go down as a year when the UK bond market unexpectedly outshone its equity counterpart.”While the ARC Cautious Charity Index made the biggest gain – 6.5% – for the year to 31 December 2014, the ARC Equity Risk Charity Index – the riskiest portfolios – gave the poorest return, at 4.5%. The two intermediate indices achieved returns commensurate with the amount of caution in the portfolio.Returns were 5.9% for the ARC Balanced Asset Charity Index, and 5.1% for the higher-risk ARC Steady Growth Charity Index.However, cumulative returns still increase with portfolio risk.Three-year returns (to 31 December 2014) for the indices range from 20.2% for the Cautious Index to 38.6% for the Equity Risk Index.And annualised performance figures since the indices were launched in December 2003 are 5.3% (cautious), 6.2% (balanced asset), 6.8% (steady growth) and 7.2% (equity risk).The ARC indices are calculated from the actual performance (net of fees) of around 1,500 segregated charity portfolios run by 28 asset managers, although for the preliminary figures fourth-quarter performance has been estimated.There are no asset class restrictions: portfolios are classified according to their volatility in relation to UK equity markets.For example, the ARC Cautious Charity Index has 0-40% risk relative to UK equity markets, while the ARC Balanced Asset Charity Index has 40-60% risk.Harrison said: “Going into 2014, few market commentators were predicting returns from government bonds would exceed those from equity markets, but that is what transpired.“Double-digit returns were recorded from 10-year Gilts (both conventional and index-linked) for 2014, as yields moved down from 3% on the 10-year Gilt to end the year at just 1.75%.”And he warned that there was a mathematical possibility that bonds could outperform again in 2015.He said: “If the 10-year Gilt yield were to fall below 1%, double-digit returns would again be recorded for bond indices.“With consensus for UK equity market returns in the 5-10% range, a repeat of 2014 cannot be ruled out.“However, most market commentators expect yields to rise over the course of 2015 and are predicting negative returns from government bond indices.” Harrison also said 2014 had proved to be a volatile but ultimately positive year for most institutional investors.But he said: “Since 2009, government and central bank manipulation of interest rates and bond markets has spilled over into exchange rates, equity markets and real assets, and finding alpha has become more of a struggle.“Institutional portfolios have been moving up the risk spectrum towards an ever-increasing exposure to large international equities with solid dividend prospects.”Harrison concluded: “We believe that 2015 will be a year of ascendancy for actively managed versus ‘passive benchmarked’ portfolios, as financial markets move from being liquidity-driven, and economic fundamentals assert themselves.”last_img read more

AODP launches initiative to sue pension investors who ignore climate risk

first_imgJulian Poulter, chief executive of the AODP, told IPE the initiative would be led by pension beneficiaries wishing to escalate their engagement efforts with pension funds where managers had so far failed to heed member concerns and begin assessing the risk. “This isn’t trouble-making – we aren’t trying to rake muck here,” Poulter said of the initiative’s focus on lawsuits. “The ideal number of cases is zero, globally. What we want is for people to change their attitude and the journey of managing their risk better.” Asked which pension funds could be at risk of legal action, Poulter declined to single out one. “It’s fair to say the members will likely look at the laggards we report on as being the worst-performing funds, so, naturally, those funds that are managing the risk less well than others are going to be at greater risk.” He said several large asset owners had yet to complete any scenario modelling around climate change, and that they should be looking at the risk of value destruction stemming from political intervention – such as recent action by the US and Chinese governments to cut carbon emissions. “For those funds that say ‘we have faith in our fund managers to trade out of that risk’ well, I think we’ve seen what happens with systemic risks when that happens,” Poulter said.  Recent attempts by pension scheme beneficiaries to influence investment strategy have seen the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) agree to survey members on their investment beliefs.However, Poulter noted that the UK Law Commission consultation that proposed such member surveys focused more on ethical investment concerns, whereas he viewed climate risk as a material financial risk that should be considered by all investors. Pension funds may soon face lawsuits from their beneficiaries if they fail to account for the risk of climate change, under a new initiative launched by the Asset Owners Disclosure Project (AODP). Teaming with ClientEarth, an environmental law organisation, the AODP launched the Climate and Pensions Legal Initiative to challenge pension managers and trustees to consider the financial risks posed by a changing global climate. Elspeth Owens, a barrister at ClimateEarth said: “Some pension funds are to be applauded for their positive approach to assessing and mitigating these risks. “However, many funds are failing to take any steps, and the gap between the best and the worst is widening. Those funds falling behind may be in breach of their legal duties.” last_img read more

Project contractor InternationalBuilders Corp. will start mobilizing its heavy equipment Monday next week, Jan.13, said DPWH assistant regional director Al Fruto yesterday. Ilonggo senator Franklin Drilon wholobbied for these flyovers said, “We have to move quickly to solve this trafficcongestion which irks drivers, commuters and tourists. We must prevent beingcompared to Metro Manila and Cebu City in terms of the gravity of traffic. Itwill not be good for the image of the city that we have worked hard on forseveral years.” According to the assistant regionaldirector, DPWH has also been coordinating with the Iloilo City government’sPublic Safety and Transportation Management Office (PSTMO) head Jeck Conlu(also the chief of the Metro Iloilo Guimaras Economic and Development Council)for a traffic rerouting plan. Drilon initiated the construction ofthe Sen. Benigno S. Aquino Jr. Avenue and the President Corazon Aquino Avenueduring the Aquino administration.

For Iloilo City-bound vehicles fromthe Iloilo Airport and other Iloilo central towns, they have two options toavoid the traffic gridlock in Barangay Ungka II. These were the following: * when going to Jaro – take theIloilo-Santa Barbara Road (particular Rizal Street – Taft Street – BarangayAgutayan – Barangay Cabugao Norte – Barangay Tigum – Barangay Pagsanga-an toBarangay Tacas, Jaro) Fruto said all the proposed flyoversare projected to be completed by the end of 2021. Work on the Jibao-an and Buhangflyovers, on the other hand, will start in the later part of 2020, said Fruto.

Other Sports Kapil Dev Once Again Emerges As A Champion, This Time In Golf

first_imgNew Delhi: Kapil Dev has already cemented his legacy in the world of cricket by helping India win the ICC Cricket World Cup for the first time in England in 1983. Under his captaincy, Indian cricket was put on the world map and since then, the popularity of the sport has reached unprecedented levels. It is thanks to the exploits of Kapil and his men in 1983 that Indian cricket is seeing the kind of success that it enjoys today. Now, Kapil is proving his mettle in another sport and is emerging a champion in that as well. Golf, which has a niche following in India, is a sport where Kapil has started making a name for himself. The two-day Pune leg of AVT Champions tour saw participation by over 100 golfers from 10 cities which included star senior golfers like Kapil Dev, who won in the 60-64 individual age category. “Winning is always a good feeling. The AVT tour is a brilliant step towards helping us senior amateur golfers play more consistently now for a goal. The senior’s tour hasrevived the competitive spirit and winning amongst some really talented golfers is a feeling that is worth being cherished,” said Kapil.Also Read | Kapil Dev urged to boycott East Bengal Football Foundation day for THIS reasonIn fact, Kapil has been making waves in gold for some time now. In 2018, during an interview with CNN, Kapil revealed how he enjoyed the sport of golf and how he represented India in a number of senior amateur golf tournaments. In that interview, Kapil said he was proud to have represented the country in two sports and he started enjoying the sport when he picked it up at the age of 37. However, he also highlighted the problems that one faces when playing golf. Also Read | MS Dhoni’s close friend Arun Pandey clears the air on his retirement from cricket”It’s very difficult because golf needs land, almost a minimum of 150 acres of land to play.

Syracuse loses physical, chippy overtime matchup with Vermont

first_imgSyracuse defender Emily Costales and Vermont defender Gina Repaci collided early in the second period, sending Repaci sliding into the boards, clutching her left shoulder. After Repaci was helped off the ice by two of her teammates, Vermont’s players started screaming from the bench before the ensuing faceoff. Their teammate wouldn’t return.Minutes later, a Vermont player sent SU defender Kaillie Goodnough backward, headfirst, into the ice. Goodnough clutched her helmet, but got up to finish out the play before heading to the bench.“It was kind of a dirty play, but I just smacked my head on the ice,” Goodnough said. “I think it’s nice that they’re letting us play but sometimes it gets a little dangerous.”Syracuse was up 3-0 to start the second period, but an early injury to one of Vermont’s players ignited the Catamounts. Vermont (7-4-1, 1-2-0 Hockey East) scored three goals in the period, two while Goodnough was out of the game, and eventually beat the Orange (3-5-5, 2-2-1 College Hockey America), 6-5, in overtime Friday night at Tennity Ice Pavilion.“Obviously we came out in the first period and dominated them,” SU goalie Jenn Gilligan said. “Got three goals in and everything was looking great and then something just happened during the break.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEverything was going right for Syracuse in the first period. Alysha Burriss sent a pass to forward Stephanie Grossi who one-timed the puck into the net.With 1:39 left, Vermont forward Amanda Pelkey, a member of the U.S. national team, and another Vermont player mishandled a puck in front of their own goal. It bounced off the post and into the net before goalie Molly Depew could dive over with her glove. SU forward Jessica Sibley got credit for the own-goal.Pelkey clenched her stick, skated to center ice for the faceoff, hunched over with her head down.A minute later, Syracuse forward Melissa Piacentini tapped in a shot from the doorstep on a pass by forward Julie Knerr. The players on the bench cheered and Piacentini was the first to skate through a line of high-fives along the boards.But in the second period, Vermont came out more aggressive and replaced the freshman Depew with the usual starter in net, Madison Litchfield.Soon after a UV power-play goal, Goodnough went down on the ice. As she skated to the bench, a Vermont player skated toward her and Goodnough knocked her down, causing screams from the Vermont fans in the stands.Goodnough sat down on the bench and put her head in her hands while assistant coach Alison Domenico talked to her. Eventually, she shuffled down to the end of the bench next to backup goalie Abbey Miller.“I think that’s up to the referees to control,” Flanagan said. “… They let things go. I mean kids, they want to win the game. They’ll take liberties if they’re going get away with it.“They got to do a better,” Flanagan said before pausing, “We tell kids to manage the puck and I think the referees, they got to manage the game.”With Goodnough out, Colang scored again when SU defender Larissa Martyniuk let Colang skate by her to the puck. After Goodnough headed into the SU locker room, Pelkey beat Martyniuk this time and scored.Both goals that came while Goodnough was out with the injury came from the right side, near the net, where she would’ve been if she had been on the ice.Vermont had a rejuvenated mentality after the first, Flanagan said. It underestimated SU, but then the Orange got sloppy, Gilligan added.And even though Goodnough was able to return for the third, losing her much of the second had done its damage.Said Gilligan: “It was hard, but I mean we should be able to bounce back from that.” Comments Published on November 15, 2014 at 12:36 am Contact Jon: jrmettus@syr.edu | @jmettus Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
