By joining the Voice of Entrepreneurs initiative, the Young Restaurateurs of Europe (JRE) – Croatia, which brings together 14 renowned Michelin-starred restaurants, has publicly expressed the need and necessity of effective economic measures to preserve jobs and reduce the economic consequences of the crisis. Covid-4.  Fine dining as a zone of luxury and socially integrative activities because of these two criteria belongs to entrepreneurship that will recover the longest: people do not have to travel and eat in expensive restaurants or socialize with fine dining dinners and spend on pairing food and wine, Gashi points out and adds : “Between 60 and 90% of fine dining restaurant guests are international gourmet clients who will not be coming to Croatia this year. Therefore, the business of this hospitality sector in 2020 is vitally endangered, with significant negative effects on the next season, and a quality model of retaining workers and economizing business in conditions where there is no income are necessary for the survival of the sector” It is important to emphasize that the business of fine dining restaurants employs a large number of year-round and skilled workers and through raising the quality of our tourism directly affects the extension of the tourist season and positioning Croatia in top gastro destinations. JRE Croatia joins associations and entrepreneurs through the initiative “Voice of Entrepreneurs” who advocate for the adoption of effective measures in the economy.center_img “Consolidation and solidarity of entrepreneurs is necessary at this time. Government measures do not offer solutions for preserving jobs and maintaining the economic cycle for entrepreneurs who make up 90% of the Croatian economy. Although each entrepreneurial sector has its own specifics, including the hospitality segment we deal with, the measures expressed in the Voice of Entrepreneurs articulate the basic needs of all of us in the real sector, especially in medium, small and micro companies to which we belong, together with our employees.”, Said Marina Gaši, President of JRE Croatia.  “Long-term efforts to recognize Croatia as a gastronomic destination, in which our members have made a huge contribution, may fail at this moment if we do not take decisive and appropriate measures. We will permanently lose the knowledge and skills of all our employees if we fail to keep them in their jobs, so this is perhaps the biggest risk of this crisis.Gaša adds that since it is impossible to predict how long this crisis will last, they support the initiative to form a crisis headquarters and adopt real, effective measures by the Croatian Government, and that they expect the Government to take steps that will practically help the long-term sustainability of the economy. Initiative – Voice of Entrepreneurs, is at this point an informal group of citizens who spontaneously gathered in the second half March 2020. years. The initiative was launched by a group of entrepreneurs who felt that there were not enough votes from the private sector in the public space and that there was an obvious lack of awareness of the seriousness of the moment and the consequences that are likely to befall our economy, primarily for micro, small and medium entrepreneurs. 70% of workers in the private sector. This association of the most creative gastronomes, founded in 1974, has about 350 of the best young top chefs and restaurant owners in Europe, including 14 renowned Croatian restaurants.last_img read more

Fans fear worst with Kinnear

first_imgJoe Kinnear’s return to Newcastle could be the beginning of the end for manager Alan Pardew’s reign on Tyneside. Press Association “The one thing you can say about Newcastle, as always, is things are never boring in terms of things to write or talk about. “Unfortunately, it’s a massive negative story and most fans think it makes the club look like a laughing stock again.” Pardew, of course, ended last season with many fans calling for his head following a 16th-placed Barclays Premier League finish 12 months after he had guided his side into fifth and the Europa League. But Kinnear’s impending return to the club he managed briefly during the ill-fated 2008-09 season, which ended in relegation, has seen the focus shift from the 51-year-old. The news was greeted with consternation in the city, although Jensen admitted Newcastle supporters should never really be surprised after Ashley’s eventful six-year reign to date. He said: “It’s amazing the number of people visiting our website and commenting and people I have spoken to personally, and everybody seems to be pretty much like me – on the one hand, they are quite angry at something that’s derailed our season already and on the other just laughing. There’s a lot of gallows humour. We’ve seen it all this before and you can only laugh about it.” Former Newcastle defender John Anderson was non-plussed by the development. He said: “It’s a crazy appointment. I’ve got no problem with a Director of Football, but with respect to Joe Kinnear, if you are going to bring in a Director of Football, you need somebody who knows the team and who hasn’t been out of football for the length of time he has been out of football.” center_img That is the view of Mark Jensen, editor of fanzine website www.themag.co.uk, following owner Mike Ashley’s shock decision to appoint the 66-year-old as Director of Football. The Magpies are yet to confirm Kinnear’s appointment despite the Irishman taking to the airwaves on Sunday to deliver an in-depth interview on his latest challenge in football. “A lot of people are assuming because of the Kinnear thing yesterday that Alan Pardew is now in the position that Chris Hughton was in the summer before he was removed, that they (Newcastle) have decided they don’t want him anymore and will look for the first opportunity to get rid of him,” Mr Jensen said. last_img read more

Bill makes female cutting a crime in Iowa

first_imgDES MOINES — The Iowa Senate has unanimously voted to ban female genital mutilation and charge those who perform the procedure with a felony. A version of the bill ready for debate in the Iowa House would establish a lesser penalty for the practice — an aggravated misdemeanor — but Senator Jake Chapman of Adel objected.“If the House refuses to take this bill because it’s a Class D felony, then shame on the House. Shame on the House,” Chapman said. “…I think we have a responsibility to do what’s in the best interest of Iowans and this practice is horrific. This practice should be classified as torture.”Female mutilation or cutting is routinely done on preteen girls in countries like Somalia. Some lawmakers have called for spending state money to educate Somali refugees of the risks.“I imagine if any of us moved to another country where circumcision was against the law, we would want to know about it,” Senate Democratic Leader Janet Petersen said. “Things that are cultural norms in one country are not cultural norms in another.”Petersen voted for the bill to make those who perform female genital mutilation in Iowa felons, but used today’s debate to complain that other bills dealing with gender inequality have languished in the senate.“There’s gender inequality in our tax code, taxing Iowa women and girls every month for the products they must purchase when they get their periods,” Petersen said. “We have no monthly tax for men and their penis.”Senator Amy Sinclair, a Republican from Allerton, said a recent survey indicates 5000 girls and young women in Iowa are at risk of female cutting.“I see no bill that more firmly addresses the matter of gender inequality than this bill,” Sinclair said. “This bill criminalizes a violent criminal act against small girls….This bill matters and it matters more than a tax on tampons.”The United Nations estimates more than 200 women and girls around the globe have experienced some form of genital mutilation. In some cultures, women who have not undergone such procedures are shunned by prospective husbands.last_img read more
