You can find out more about the Voice of Entrepreneurs initiative and their demands to the Government at Facebook or on official website The “Voice of Entrepreneurs” initiative gathered over 10 entrepreneurs and their entrepreneurs over 90.000 days. 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. “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.

November 07, 2019 Healthcare, Press Release, Public Health Harrisburg, PA — Today, Governor Tom Wolf and Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman advised Pennsylvanians that now is the time to buy health insurance on the federal exchange, healthcare.gov, as open enrollment continues for Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans through Dec. 15. Consumers have more options in Pennsylvania, and many will find they qualify for subsidies.“Today, I am encouraging Pennsylvanians to take advantage of this year’s open enrollment period as we’ve worked hard to make health care more affordable and accessible in the state,” Gov. Wolf said. “With expanded choices and lower premiums, more Pennsylvanians will be able to afford the health care coverage they need, providing peace of mind and a healthier future.”This is the last enrollment period that Pennsylvania will rely on healthcare.gov for health insurance plans. Gov. Wolf signed a bill in July to create a state-based exchange that will be less costly to operate than it is to participate on the federal exchange. The state-based exchange is expected to be operational in 2021.This historic reform creates an online exchange operated by the state that will save insurance purchasers money, pay for some of the health care costs for high-cost individuals, and lower premiums, in particular for low-income Pennsylvanians.“The insurance department is pleased that insurers remain committed to providing ACA coverage options to hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians,” Insurance Commissioner Altman said. “Nearly 80 percent of Pennsylvanians qualify for subsidies to offset their monthly premiums. I encourage individuals who do not get coverage through an employer or other state or federal programs to shop for coverage and compare plans using Consumers’ Checkbook on the department’s website.”The Checkbook tool allows consumers to view plan options, estimate monthly premiums and total annual out-of-pocket costs for each plan, and calculate available subsidy assistance.Gov. Wolf and Commissioner Altman stressed that ACA health plans must cover essential health benefits, including pre-existing conditions, preventive doctors’ visits, emergencies, maternity and newborn care, prescription drugs, and mental health and substance use disorder treatment.“As the White House continues to attempt to slash the ACA, taking insurance away from rather than increasing the amount of affordable coverage, I’ve fought to get every Pennsylvanian covered by health insurance, and to bring down costs so Pennsylvanians aren’t forced to choose between health insurance and new shoes for their kids, car repairs or rent,” Gov. Wolf said.“Our uninsured rate has fallen to just 5.5 percent, the lowest on record for Pennsylvania,” Gov. Wolf said. “Until that rate is at zero, I will continue to fight for affordable health care coverage for every Pennsylvanian.”For more information on how to enroll and to access the Consumers’ Checkbook, visit the Pennsylvania Insurance Department online.

According to the regulator, a “small number” of schemes said they would fail to achieve the minimum required funding of 104% within five years.In this event, they will need to apply a rights discount within this period.The regulator said the projected recovery was driven largely by surplus returns, with anticipated returns of 4.7% on average. On average, premiums did not contribute to improvement. DNB said it was concerned about the application of the maximum allowed return assumptions, plans for “possibly premature” indexation or combinations of these factors. It said it would begin to engage with potentially vulnerable pension funds, adding that it would also factor in feasibility checks, which need to be submitted before 1 October.The recovery plans were drawn at the start of the year and do not take into account the impact on funding of the reduction of the ultimate forward rate (UFR) for discounting liabilities. The UFR – cut from 4.2% to 3.3% – directly reduced pension funds’ coverage by 3 percentage points on average, according to the regulator.It estimated the subsequent impact over the course of the recovery period would be an additional 5 percentage points.This would be the case if current interest rates remained stable, which would lead to a decreasing UFR, it said. The average recovery plan is based on a funding of 100.7%, including the UFR, at the start of 2015 and 104.5% at year-end.According to pensions adviser Aon Hewitt, the coverage ratio of Dutch pension funds was 102% on average, as of the end of August.Next spring, the recovery plans will be assessed in light of the pension funds’ position at year-end. Dutch regulator De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) has approved all but one of the 155 recovery plans submitted by underfunded pension funds. However, it also noted that a number of pension funds – “mostly the larger ones” – had factored in the highest allowed return assumptions, and warned that proposed premiums failed to contribute to general improvement.None of the recovery plans provides for rights discounts.Some months ago, a rights cut appeared to be in the offing for a single pension fund, but it submitted a plan that will enable it to recover within 12 years without cuts, according to the regulator.
ABS, classification and technical services provider to the offshore industry, has approved Diamond Offshore’s new Floating Factory drillship design.ABS said that recent work on the Floating Factory drillship concept was an example of how the company worked with drilling contractors, in this case, approving the basic design for this innovative concept.The classification company added that the drillship was conceptualized as an asset that could adapt to carry out different functions for the entire life cycle of the well, changing from one operational phase to the next and reducing transition times between phases by carrying out some of the necessary functions off the critical path.ABS executive VP for global offshore, Ken Richardson, said: “ABS is working on multiple fronts to help the offshore industry find efficiencies and streamline operations. We are coordinating efforts for standardization and working one-on-one with companies that are changing the way offshore projects are executed.”Diamond Offshore senior VP for technical services, Karl Sellers, added: “We understand the need to reduce well delivery times and improve economics to try to drive down the costs of offshore development. We’re rethinking designs and making enhancements based on input from customers and equipment providers, and we’re relying on classification societies like ABS to help us validate our concepts.”The finalized concept for the Floating Factory drillship is based on Huisman’s HuisDrill 12000 design and includes a drill tower that enables tripping in unrestricted mode at 5,000 ft/hr in areas where there’s no surge and swab risk, such as open water.The tower also allows for 180 feet stands of pipe, compared with the more traditional 135 feet stands, removing the need for two pipe connections.Diamond Offshore also increased the length and width of the drillship design to create a large and flat deck. The Floating Factory design contains 50 percent more dedicated deck space than the average sixth-generation drillship.Preliminary calculations by Diamond Offshore suggest that the Floating Factory concept could shave 16.5 days from a 100-day well, on average. The bulk of this reduction would come from the high-speed tripping ability and the reduced connection time.

Dave Volz and his sons, Drew and Deakin, all have been Indiana State pole vault champions. It started with Dave in 1979 when he was a student at Bloomington South High School. He went on to IU and eventually pole vaulted in the Olympics in 1982.Not to be outdone by their father, Drew Volz won state titles in 2010 and 2011. This past spring Deakin won his state title. Deakin will try to repeat as the state champ this June. Both sons are Bloomington South students as well.This February Deakin vaulted 17’10.5″ for a national high school record. Later that same night, a young man by the name of Benevedes of Texas broke Deakin’s record. Both of these young men will be trying to break the 18′ mark this outdoor season.Dave Volz is considered one of the best pole vault coaches in the United States. Obviously, he did quite well in his own back yard.
Sophomore guard Alyssa Karel will be looking to get UW back on track against Purdue.[/media-credit]After losing consecutive games for only the second time this season, the Wisconsin women’s basketball team will look to end that streak Thursday night against Purdue.The Badgers are happy to be back at the Kohl Center — where they have lost just twice all season — after struggling on the road in their last two games.Not only does Wisconsin need a win to end its two-game skid, its home matchup with Purdue comes in the middle of a stretch of four out of five on the road, including the next two games after facing Purdue.“It’s a big one for us,” junior captain Rae Lin D’Alie said. “It’s home, and we really need to be hungry for a win. Purdue is a great team, so we’ve got to come ready to play defensively, get some things worked out offensively and hopefully we get that ‘W’ because we need one.”Wisconsin (14-7, 4-6 Big Ten) will face one of the top teams in the conference Thursday in Purdue (13-7, 6-3), a team that was chosen to win the Big Ten in the preseason coaches’ poll and currently is tied with Minnesota for fourth in the conference.Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton, a 6-foot-2-inch forward, leads the Boilermakers with 13.2 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. With Purdue’s size advantage inside, Wisconsin may have some lineup changes to deal with matchup problems.Facing similar size on Sunday against Michigan State, head coach Lisa Stone opted to start freshman guard Jade Davis in place of D’Alie, who had started 86 consecutive games to begin her career.“We’re going to dictate who plays based on the two practices this week,” Stone said. “It may stay the same, but it might be Rae again; she might come out and just get that fire back that she’s all about.”Regardless of who is on the court for the Badgers, one of the biggest keys to the game for UW will be taking care of the ball and limiting turnovers.Wisconsin has struggled in its last two games, turning the ball over more than 20 times against both Penn State and Michigan State. Making the Badgers’ turnover struggles more surprising was the fact that they recently had tied a team-low at home against Illinois with five turnovers, including zero in the second half.“If we all just kind of slow down and start thinking about our offense and just playing basketball more so than worrying about what defense they’re throwing at us … I think we’ll start taking care of the ball more,” Davis said.One of the causes of the Badgers’ struggles was the pressure defense they faced against both the Nittany Lions and the Spartans. Stone’s squad expects to see more of the same against Purdue, making ball security a major emphasis in preparation this week.“We’re going to do some offensive stuff, some sureness drills,” D’Alie said. “We’ll probably have Coach [Oties] Epps on our arms and hacking our arms to make sure we’re being strong with the ball.”The increase in turnovers recently has led to Wisconsin’s offensive output being down over its last two games, as the Badgers scored just 50 points at Michigan State and 56 in an overtime game at Penn State.Two players, however, have seen their output go up of late. Mariah Dunham and Alyssa Karel have consistently been the Badgers’ two leading scorers over the last 3 games. The duo combined for 27 points in each of the last two games for UW and 25 in the win over Illinois.With a pair of scorers leading the way, the Badgers have performed well when they’ve been able to take care of the ball. UW’s third-leading scorer, Lin Zastrow, also has averaged seven points over the last three games for the Badgers.“We need someone to be stepping up right now and [Dunham] is doing a great job,” D’Alie said. “Alyssa is still doing a great job; she’s still scoring for us which is huge. Hopefully we can get Lin going a little bit more and we should be good.”
U.S. sports leagues made the call Monday to keep media and other non-essential personnel out of locker rooms and clubhouses, but those leagues have yet to cancel games or to play them without fans present, although ESPN reported Monday that the NBA’s Board of Governors is expected to discuss those possibilities Wednesday.For now, Staples Center’s website reports that the venue is “closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation,” that it continues to welcome guests and that it has implemented preventative measures such as frequent cleaning and monitoring of high-touch areas and arena-wide end-of-event sanitation procedures in line with recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Los Angeles County Public Health Department.But with more U.S. cancellations likely forthcoming, ticket exchange companies such as StubHub and SeatGeek are letting customers know they can expect refunds if they used those services to purchase tickets to events that wind up being called off.In StubHub’s case, a fan who bought tickets to a canceled event can receive either a full refund or a coupon, to be used within 12 months, for 120 percent of the original purchase, according to the email sent to customers.In the FAQ section on the SeatGeek website, that ticket exchange firm said customers will be protected by the company’s “buyer guarantee” and their orders will be refunded in full. SeatGeek does not offer an option for a coupon to be used later. “Coronavirus Update: We have your back.” So read the subject line of the email that StubHub sent to customers Saturday evening informing them of their options if the events to which they bought tickets are called off.In recent days, sporting events around the world have been canceled or staged without fans as the coronavirus epidemic has grown.On Sunday in the United States, the BNP Paribas Open, a major tennis tournament that was scheduled to take place in Indian Wells starting this week, was canceled after local health officials declared a public health emergency in the Coachella Valley because of a confirmed coronavirus case.On Tuesday, the Ivy League announced that it canceled its men’s and women’s basketball tournaments and awarded its automatic NCAA Tournament bids to the regular-season champions, a decision that came the day after Santa Clara County canceled gatherings with more than 1,000 people, including events at the SAP Center scheduled in March that included the NHL’s San Jose Sharks’ three home games. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Conversely, SeatGeek indicated that in the case someone sold tickets to an event that is canceled due to the coronavirus: “Your sale will be canceled and you will not receive a payout.”You can “contact the original ticket company for a ticket refund,” StubHub said on its website.Fans who bought their tickets through AXS Ticketing will receive refunds if the event is canceled, according to Chandra, a customer service representative. She said AXS will be notified when an event is canceled, at which point refunds automatically will start being issued.Furthermore, if an event is postponed, AXS ticket holders either can hold onto their tickets or request a refund if they’re unable to attend the event on its new date.Similarly, TicketMaster’s website states that refunds will be processed following cancellations, and that the company also will send an email to “get in touch if your event is postponed. Your tickets will be valid for the rescheduled date, but if you can’t make it, you can get a refund.”In the case of a postponement, neither SeatGeek nor StubHub planned to issue refunds.And if a person does not want to attend an event that is on schedule to proceed because of the coronavirus, the two ticket exchanges recommend relisting the tickets for sale. An explanation the StubHub website reads: “You can relist your tickets if you’re not comfortable attending the event.”
Later that inning, Muncy came off the bench to pinch-hit and was called out on a third strike that was clearly below the strike zone. Home plate umpire Jim Reynolds admonished Muncy for expressing his opinion as he walked away from the plate, prompting Roberts to leave the dugout for a brief discussion.“We just had a little disagreement about the bottom of the strike zone. He called what he called,” Muncy said. “Obviously I wasn’t happy about it but you can’t change it at that point so you have to just make sure you stay in the game, knowing that there’s going to be moves made and you can’t leave your team short-handed. So keep your cool in that moment and understand you’ll probably have an at-bat later in the game.”Two innings later, Muncy had his second chance. Barnes led off the inning with a double and scored when Muncy lashed a hard ground ball down the first-base line. Hosmer dove to make a play but could only deflect the ball into foul territory, allowing Barnes to score the winning run from second.“You have to have a very short memory because if you go up there carrying that then you’re going to chase something that you’re not supposed to swing at, especially against a guy like Yates who really pounds the bottom of the zone,” Muncy said.“You just gotta make sure you get him up in the zone. I felt he gave me a pretty good pitch to hit, but I was a little out in front on it still. I was able to get it away from Hosmer and Barnesy was running hard and was able to score.” The Dodgers spotted the Padres three runs in the first three innings, then came back to win 4-3 on Max Muncy’s RBI single in the ninth inning Friday night in the first game of a sold-out series at Petco Park.“There was no panic. Getting behind early, we just kept putting at-bats together,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.“Up and down the lineup it wasn’t pretty. I just think that the at-bat quality, the intent was there and we found a way to win a baseball game.”They have found many ways to beat the Padres over the past nine years – usually by simply being the better team.The Dodgers (whose fans contributed significantly to selling out this series) have now won 15 of their last 20 meetings with the Padres and are 100-51 (.662) against them since the start of the 2011 season. The 100 wins are the most any team in the majors has against a single opponent in that time. Clayton Kershaw has drunk deeply from the San Diego well.Friday was Kershaw’s 35th career start against the Padres. In the first 34, he was 18-6 with a 1.90 ERA – including 8-2 with a 1.61 ERA at Petco Park. He hasn’t taken a loss against the Padres since June 2013 and he hasn’t given up more than three runs in a start against them since then either.The Padres reached their Kershaw limit quickly.In his first career at-bat against the Dodgers’ long-time ace, the Padres’ $300 million Manny clobbered a 3-and-2 slider, sending it deep into the upper deck in left field for a two-run home run. The ball left Machado’s bat at 111 mph and traveled 437 feet – a combination that Machado acknowledged by adjusting his helmet and flipping his bat as he left home plate.Ian Kinsler more discreetly sent a first-pitch fastball from Kershaw into the left field seats for a third-inning solo home run and a 3-0 Padres lead.“I put us behind the 8-ball early,” Kershaw said. “You just try to keep them at bay as much as you can. (Padres starter Eric) Lauer was throwing the ball well obviously. But we never gave in, kept having good at-bats, did the best we possibly could. Finally broke through with CT’s homer there. That kind of got our momentum going.”Chris Taylor’s leadoff home run in the fifth inning was the Dodgers’ first hit in the game off Lauer, who retired 12 of the first 13 Dodgers hitters.They got to Lauer for two more hits and a walk to load the bases in the sixth and drive him from the game. Lefty reliever Brad Wieck escaped danger with only a sacrifice fly by Corey Seager doing any damage.Instead, Austin Barnes’ home run leading off the seventh against Padres reliever Travis Wingenter completed the comeback and tied the score at 3-3.Related Articles Manny Machado took former teammate Clayton Kershaw deep 😲(via @FOXSportsSD) pic.twitter.com/OItvpzQmp8— SI MLB (@si_mlb) May 4, 2019 Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Max Power + Barnes’ Speed = #Dodgers lead! pic.twitter.com/3pNkGzpRBu— SportsNet LA (@SportsNetLA) May 4, 2019 Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco PreviousSAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – MAY 03: Clayton Kershaw #22 of the Los Angeles Dodgers pitches during the third inning of a game against the San Diego Padres at PETCO Park on May 03, 2019 in San Diego, California.
