“Full Ceker – let’s buy locally” in the finals of the European Entrepreneurship Promotion Award

first_imgThe project “PUN Ceker – let’s buy locally” entered the grand finale of the award for the best idea of ​​social entrepreneurship, which is awarded as part of the competition for the European Award for the Promotion of Entrepreneurship in 2017. 2017 member states of the European Union and Iceland, Norway, Serbia and Turkey are participating in the competition for the EEPA 28 award.The European Enterprise Promotion Awards 2017 (EEPA 2017) is a recognition by which the European Commission annually awards projects / initiatives that, with the aim of encouraging entrepreneurship and small business development, are implemented by public bodies independently or in public-private partnership with entrepreneurs. . This award was launched to open new opportunities for the local and regional level through examples of best policies and practices with the aim of developing entrepreneurship, employment and retaining the population in their communities.”The project” Buy locally “aims to bring together family farms, winemakers, beekeepers and producers of agricultural and other non-agricultural products from Sisak-Moslavina County to facilitate communication, solve administrative problems and to achieve a common goal – promoting local production and consumption, and pointing out to the whole community the wealth that abounds in our lands.For the needs of the project, the Development Agency SI-MO-RA founded the cooperative “Association of Producers of Sisak-Moslavina County” (which brings together local family farms), and the founders are Sisak-Moslavina County, City of Hrvatska Kostajnica, Donji Kukuruzari Municipality, Dvor, Hrvatska Dubica , Jasenovac, Lekenik, Majur and Sunja and the County Development Agency SIMORA.As part of the project, four stores with domestic products ‘Pun ceker’ were opened, which are located in Sisak, Novska, Kutina and at the rest area “Stari Hrastovi” along the highway Zagreb – Lipovac, and the goal is to open six more stores in Sisak – Moslavina county, which would employ people from the area of ​​Sisak-Moslavina County, which would reduce the unemployment rate, which is very pronounced in our area. Through these stores, all residents of Sisak-Moslavina County will have access to domestic and healthy products from well-known producers from the county.A great story that is proof of how everything is up to people and how everything can be connected. Such projects must be declared a strategic project for our tourism, not like the Pink Wing race with luxury cars. Also, such projects once again prove that it is possible to connect “Blue” and “Green” Croatia, of course it is always easiest to say that something is impossible and stick to the status quo.Related news: <br />

Trump tests negative for virus as US expands Europe traveler ban

first_imgPresident Donald Trump has tested negative for the novel coronavirus, his physician said Saturday, following concerns over his exposure to a disease that has paralyzed the globe.Trump agreed to the test after coming in contact with several members of a Brazilian presidential delegation visiting his Florida resort who have since tested positive for the virus. “This evening I received confirmation that the test is negative,” the president’s physician Sean Conley said in a memo. “One week after having dinner with the Brazilian delegation at Mar-a-Lago, the President remains symptom-free,” he said.Trump, 73, had dismissed concerns over his exposure to the disease which has killed at least 51 Americans and upended the rhythm of daily life across the country, with millions working from home and schools shuttered.New York, the most populous US city, saw its first coronavirus death on Saturday, as store shelves were stripped bare after days of panic buying.”I have been through Hurricane Sandy… through 9/11, I have never seen shopping like this,” said Larry Grossman, manager of a Manhattan supermarket. Vice President Mike Pence on Saturday announced a further restriction on travel to the United States, saying a travel ban imposed on European nations over the pandemic would be extended to the United Kingdom and Ireland Tuesday.Trump advised against non-essential travel, and said officials were considering imposing travel restrictions within the United States.”If you don’t have to travel, I wouldn’t do it,” Trump said at a White House news conference. “We want this thing to end. We don’t want a lot of people getting infected.”Trump declared a national emergency on Friday in what critics say was a long-delayed admission of the gravity of the crisis, freeing up some $40 billion in disaster relief funds. Late Friday, the US House of Representatives passed a bill — crafted by Democrats in consultation with the Trump administration — to provide billions of dollars for free virus testing, emergency paid sick leave and family leave related to the epidemic.Supported by Trump, it is expected to easily pass the Republican-controlled Senate next week.News of Trump taking the test marked a further turning point, after days of resistance to the suggestion.An end to hand-shaking The coronavirus pandemic has claimed more than 5,700 lives in some 137 countries.Repeatedly attacked for sending out mixed signals on the health crisis, the president raised eyebrows on Friday when, contrary to medical advice, he was seen shaking hands as he gathered his coronavirus response team at the White House.On Saturday, he blamed habit — “people put their hand out… you don’t think about it” — but said it would have to change.”Maybe people shouldn’t be shaking hands for the long term,” said Trump, a self-declared germophobe, “because it does transmit flu and other things.”Trump’s virus test came after not only contact with the Brazilian delegation, but also US lawmakers and political leaders who have gone into self-quarantine over potential infection.Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel was on Saturday awaiting results of a virus test after she came down with flu-like symptoms. She reportedly attended an event in Florida with Trump on Monday and flew back to Washington on Air Force One.Read also: As coronavirus chaos spreads globally, Trump declares US emergencyA broader travel ban On Saturday a 30-day US ban took effect on all travel from the EU’s Schengen border-free zone, part of a global clampdown on travel to curtail the virus.Pence said the ban — which notably excluded Britain and Ireland — would include both countries as of midnight EST on Monday (0400 GMT on Tuesday).”Americans in the UK or Ireland can come home. Legal (US) residents can come home,” Pence said.Trump also aimed a new jab at the US Federal Reserve, saying he wanted it to be “much more proactive” in moving to protect Americans from the widespread economic dislocation caused by the pandemic.But the president — wearing a navy blue USA cap — seemed otherwise subdued during Saturday’s briefing, uncharacteristically offering praise to Democrats including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.Pelosi said she was “proud” to have reached an agreement on the relief package after days of tense talks with the White House.Trump also tweeted that he had a “nice conversation” with Canadian leader Justin Trudeau and that it was “great to hear that his wonderful wife Sophie is doing very well.”Trudeau has been telegoverning since his wife was diagnosed with COVID-19 on Thursday.Topics :last_img read more

Rafa: Three points, stats the key

first_img Chelsea are bidding to consolidate their place in the top four and a Champions League qualifying spot by winning their game in-hand over Tottenham. Benitez said: “I haven’t wasted any second thinking about how many (points) we need. It’s just the next three points. I’m just thinking about the next game. I don’t waste time when you have so many games. You cannot be doing numbers all the time. It depends on the other teams.” Press Association Spurs and Chelsea play at Stamford Bridge on May 8 in what could effectively be a Champions League play-off. But Benitez, who takes Chelsea to his former club Liverpool in another key game on Sunday, anticipates the race to the top four will continue until the final day of the campaign. He said: “Hopefully we can be there. I don’t know who will be with us. The league will go until the end of the season. Hopefully I am wrong and we will be qualified before (then), but I think it will be until the end of the season.” Experience is key at this stage of the season, and Benitez added: “The head makes the difference. At the end of the season it’s more important to be strong mentally and approach every game with the belief you can win.” Chelsea have players with the requisite experience. Frank Lampard and captain John Terry are expected to return at Craven Cottage, having been unused substitutes in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final loss to Manchester City. Midfielder Lampard could be in the final months of his Chelsea career, with his contract expiring and the prospects of an extension uncertain, and is three short of overtaking Bobby Tambling as the club’s record goalscorer. “The main thing is the team,” said Benitez of Lampard, who last scored against West Ham. “I would like to see Frank breaking the record, for sure. (But) if I pick him it’s because I think that he’s a good player. I’m sure he can score goals. Hopefully he can score more than two and then he will break the record.” center_img Rafael Benitez normally likes statistics, but the Chelsea interim boss has had no time for numbers ahead of tonight’s west London derby at Fulham where three Barclays Premier League points is all that matters.last_img read more

(Photo by Kevin Sullivan/Orange County Register/SCNG)ExpandTHE GAME: The Angels gave up two runs in the bottom of the ninth to lose, 9-8, to the Oakland A’s in the spring training opener on Friday at Hohokam Stadium in Mesa. The two runs scored when a hard ground ball got past minor league shortstop Connor Justus, who was playing in. It was ruled a hit. The Angels did not have any of their projected everyday players in the lineup. With fewer days of workouts before the first exhibition game this year, the Angels are not playing their regulars until next week.PITCHING REPORT: Right-hander Nick Tropeano recorded only four outs in his first game since returning from Tommy John surgery. He gave up three runs, all on a Matt Olson homer in the first inning. Tropeano hit the first batter of the game. “You knew I had some nerves in me,” he said, “and I was real excited. I let that one go a little bit.” Overall, he said it was a positive performance, despite the results: “Eighteen months of hard work and dedication and being in the training room, it’s a relief to get out there, even if it’s a spring game.” … Right-hander Parker Bridwell pitched two crisp, scoreless innings, throwing 16 strikes in just 19 pitches. … Left-hander Ian Krol, a veteran big leaguer on a minor-league deal, gave up hits to two of the four batters he face. … Right-hander Luke Bard, a Rule 5 pick, pitched a perfect inning.HITTING REPORT: The Angels had 13 hits and seven walks. They made four outs on the bases, though, including an apparent miscommunication when Rymer Liriano tried to take third after a double, but Michael Hermosillo had stopped there. … Jefry Marte had two hits and a walk. Marte is competing for a job as a backup infielder, but he is out of options this spring, so he’s likely also competing for a spot on the other 29 teams. … Carlos Perez, who is also out of options, had an RBI double. … Colin Walsh hit a three-run homer to give the Angels a lead in the eighth inning. Walsh, who signed a minor league deal over the winter, is one of the leading candidates to win the last bench spot.DEFENSE REPORT: Catcher Rene Rivera bounced a throw to second on a stolen base attempt. … Hermosillo mishandled a ball that dropped in front of him in center field, allowing a run to score.
