Georgia tells residents to watch out for spring bear sightings On Wednesday, James Campbell of Cheltenham, England, ran 26.2 miles in his 20-foot backyard. The fete took over five hours. Tens of thousands tuned in to watch the live stream as Campbell ran back and forth between his back door and his garden shed in what he deemed the #6MetreGardenMarathon. The outdoor industry continues to come through in a big way during the pandemic. The most recent example is Osprey’s announcement that their Cortez, Colorado-based warranty and repair team will exclusively sew fabric masks that they will distribute to Southwest Memorial Hospital and the local health department. Osprey’s team has the capacity to sew 100 fabric masks a day. The masks can be worn over N95 medical-grade masks. “In this unprecedented time, I am inspired by our team’s response,” said Layne Rigney, President of Osprey Packs. “The repair team is giving our entire company something to be proud of.” Spring is here and bears are emerging from their dens after a winter of dormancy (biologists call it “torpor.”) Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division is reminding residents that spring sightings of black bears are common at this time of year and should be expected. Photo from Getty Images Campbell is a competitive javelin thrower and told the Washington Post he had been feeling bored and restless during the coronavirus lockdown. His effort raised $22,000 for Britain’s National Health Service’s effort to fight COVID-19. “As you can imagine, bears and hungry and ready to find food when they leave those dens. This search for food can sometimes put them a little too close to people,” says Adam Hammond, a state bear biologist. To say safe, Hammond advises the public never to feed or approach bears; secure food, garbage and recycling bins; remove bird feeders when bears are active; never leave pet food outside; clean and store grills; and let your neighbors know if you see bears in your neighborhood.

A record tourist year in Zagreb County The third project is being implemented by the Zagreb County with the City of Zagreb, and it is about Greenway, the first bicycle highway in the Republic of Croatia with a length of about 115 km and a total value of 123 million kuna. “A number of property-legal relations had to be resolved on the entire section, and this is finally coming to an end, so we are about to make the main project.”, Said Prefect Kožić, emphasizing that the project will further encourage the development of rural tourism. Greenway, the first bicycle highway in the Republic of Croatia, about 115 km long The Greenway Project Photo: Zagreb County Tourist Board In Zagreb County, the implementation of three EU projects is underway, which will significantly enrich the tourist offer in the coming period. Zagreb County Prefect Stjepan Kožić commented on the branches of tourism to which the County pays special attention. “I am primarily thinking of health tourism and the Naftalan Special Hospital in Ivanić-Grad, where reconstruction and extension works worth HRK 50 million should be completed soon. As this is a unique deposit of medicinal naphthalene, an oil derivative whose deposit is still the only one in Azerbaijan, we expect the return of this investment in a very short time.”, Said Kožić, emphasizing the importance of shopping tourism thanks to two large investments in Rugvica – IKEA and Designer Outlet Croatia. “There is also cycling tourism that we are developing throughout our county, as well as religious tourism in the Krašić region, for which interest is growing from year to year.”, Concluded Kožić. The project plans to build a bicycle road “GREENWAY” that follows the course of the Sava River from the border with Slovenia to Lijevi Dubrovčak with a total length of 121,6 km with additional equipment that includes: lighting, bicycle chargers (pedals), rest areas, parking lots, info signs, traffic counters. It is also planned to arrange access to bridges, as well as to arrange access and connections to the existing bicycle and road infrastructure. In 2018, Zagreb County was traditionally most visited by guests from Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Poland, and a significant increase in the number of tourists from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and other Asian countries was recorded. The most visited cities were Velika Gorica, which recorded a 60 percent increase in tourist overnight stays, followed by Sveta Nedelja and Jastrebarsko, which recorded eight times more arrivals and overnight stays, thanks in large part to the newly opened hotel next to the famous congress center. The second million euros is the In cultura veritas project, which the Zagreb County is implementing together with Slovenian border subregions. The project will be implemented until November 2020, and it aims to develop an attractive cultural and tourist offer on cultural heritage sites and wine roads. “This is the first time since we measured the tourist indicators that arrivals have reached the six-digit number”, Said the director of the Zagreb County Tourist Board Ružica Rašperić, expressing satisfaction because it is not just about seasonal arrivals, but a continuous influx of domestic and foreign guests. “We are known as an excursion destination for relaxation, but also an active vacation, and we plan to continue to build that image “, said Rašperić, emphasizing the rich eno-gastronomic culture and offer, wine and cycling roads and numerous events thanks to which the Zagreb County is widely known. In 2018, Zagreb County recorded 122.922 tourist arrivals, which is 41 percent more than in the same period in 2017 (87.139). Of the total number of arrivals, 93.279 guests were foreign guests, and the remaining 29.643 were domestic guests. According to the Zagreb County, this is a project to build the “Visitor Center Sošice”, an investment worth almost 27,5 million kuna, which aims to improve the system of visits and education in the Nature Park Žumberak – Samoborsko gorje, and which should be realized by February 2020. See more about the Greenway project HERE The number of overnight stays also increased by 33 percent, from 154.345 to 204.818. Out of the total number of overnight stays in the Zagreb County, 149.925 overnight stays were realized by foreign guests, and domestic by 54.893 overnight stays. The conceptual design plans to build a trail through the City of Zagreb on both sides of the Sava River, while a trail through the Zagreb County is planned with only one. The total planned length of the route through Zagreb County without bridge access is 56.806 m, while for the City of Zagreb it is 50.794 m.
Tá easpa soiléireachta an rialtais ó thaobh na scoileanna breise a bhí le bheith páirteach i Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga don scoilbhliain reatha á cháineadh go géar ag Teachta Pearse Doherty.Tagann na tráchtaireachtaí déanta ag Teachta Doherty sna sála ar fhreagra ar Cheist Dála a bhí tugtha ag an Aire Gaeltachta ina theip air gealltanas a thabhairt go gclúdófar na scoileanna breise a bhí fógartha ag an Rialtas mar chuid den scéim.Deir Teachta Doherty “Mar is eol d’achan duine, tá uiríll á ndéanamh agamsa le dornán míonna anuas ar son scoileanna mar gheall ar na moilleanna tubaisteacha chun Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga a sheachadhadh. “Fógraíodh i lár mhí Mheán Fómhair go mbeidh trí scoil déag breise ann i mbliana mar ránnpháirtithe don scoilbhliain 2016/17- agus scoileanna i nDún na nGall, Pobalscoil na Rossan; Scoil Náisiúnta an Chéidigh; Scoil Náisiúnta Mhín na Gabhann; agus Scoil Náisiúnta an Bhrocaigh, ina measc.“In ainneoin an fógra seo, b’éigean dom riar na scéime a chur os chomhair an Aire i nDíospóireacht sa Dáil mar bhí Cúntóirí fós le ceapadh do scoileanna agus iad ar tí dul ar bhriseadh lárthéarma.“D’admhaigh an Aire go ndéarna sé faillí chun a chuid dualgaisí a chomhlíonadh ó thaobh na scéime agus na scoileanna breise a bhí le cur san áireamh, agus thoiligh sé go n-íocfar airgead riaracháin agus go mbeidh na socruithe sin curtha i bhfeidhm ar an toirt.“Maidir leis na scoileanna breise a fógaraíodh mar rannpháirtaithe nua sa scéim, mhaígh an Aire go dtabharfar cuidiú do na scoileanna breise ach caithfear comhairle na Roinne a fháil chun a chinntiú gur scoileanna Gaeltachta iad agus go bhfuil siad ag múineadh trí mheán na Gaeilge sula ndéanfar é seo. “Bheartaigh mé Ceist Dála a chur ar an Aire arís an tseachtain seo ina thaobh, agus d’fhiafraigh mé de cén dul chun cinn atá déanta ionas go mbeidh na cúintóirí in ann dul i mbun oibre sna scoileanna seo.“Ar an drochuair, theip ar an Aire ina fhreagra gealltanas a thabhairt go gclúdófar na scoileanna breise, agus tá easpa soiléireachta fós ann maidir lena rannphairtíocht sa scéim.“Is cás nairéach é seo agus, chan amháin sin, tá an Aire ag cliseadh ina dhualgas i leith na Gaeilge.”CríochUncertainty Continues to Surround Irish Language Assistance Scheme and Additional Schools – Doherty Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Deputy Pearse Doherty has strongly condemned the Government over the lack of certainty surrounding the Irish Language Assistance scheme ‘Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga’ for the current school year.Deputy Doherty’s comments come following a reply to a Parliamentary Question from the Minister for the Gaeltacht in which he fails to to give a commitment that the additional schools which had been announced by the Government will now be covered as part of the scheme.Deputy Doherty said:“As everyone knows, I have been making representations on behalf of schools for some months now over the terrible delays to deliver the Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga.“Thirteen additional schools had been announced in the middle of September as participants for the academic year 2016/17- and schools in Donegal, namely Pobalscoil na Rossan; Scoil Náisiúnta an Chéidigh; Scoil Náisiúnta Mhín na Gabhann; agus Scoil Náisiúnta an Bhrocaigh, were also to be included.“In spite of this announcement, I was forced to raise the administration of the scheme with the Minister during a Dáil debate as Assistants had yet to be appointed to schools which were due to go off on Midterm break.“The Minister admitted that he failed to fulfil his duties in relation to the scheme and also in respect of the additional schools that were to be included, and he conceded that the administrative funding for the programme would be allocated and that these measures would be implemented immediately.“Concerning the additional schools which had been announced as new participants, the Minister claimed that help would be provided to these extra schools however, advice would first have to be sought from the Department in order to clarify if these are Gaeltacht schools and that they are teaching through the medium of Irish before this could be done.“This week I again decided to table a Dáil Question to the Minister on this issue, and I asked him to give details of the progress which had been made to enable Assistants to start work in these schools.“Unfortunately, the Minister failed to give a commitment that these extra schools would be covered, and there is still a lack of clarity in relation to their participation in the scheme.“This is a shameful situation and, not only that, but the Minister is failing in his duties with respect to the Irish language.”Easpa soiléireachta Fós Ann maidir le Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga agus Scoileanna Breise – Doherty was last modified: November 11th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
18 May 2016SA: @AtandwaKani stars alongside his father, John Kani in the upcoming locally produced movie ‘The Suit’ #Dstv872 pic.twitter.com/kIs7TA84kL— TransAfricaRadio (@TransAfrica872) March 9, 2016The short film version of Can Themba’s classic South African story, The Suit, has been written for screen and directed by fledgling filmmaker Jarryd Coetsee. The film stars Atandwa Kani, son of South African acting legend John Kani, in the lead role of Philemon.The story, set in 1950s apartheid South Africa, deals with the consequences of an extramarital affair gone wrong, but the metaphor acts as a more substantial comment on the brutal effects of the forced removals of the time. The story was banned by the National Party government when it was first published, but has since become a standard in high school set work curriculums; it has also been adapted for stage.Themba was a journalist for Drum magazine and an apartheid dissident. He died in exile in 1968.About his debut film, Coetsee, who first read the novel as a set work at school, told the South African Sunday Times newspaper that the story was still important. Its themes of personal space and humiliation offered a more emotional understanding today of the profound trauma experienced by millions of South Africans during apartheid.In the story, Philemon discovers a suit left by the lover of his wife, Matilda. He proceeds to use the suit to torment and humiliate her.“Oppression is cyclical and it affects personal relationships in a destructive way,” said Coetsee. “I can think of no time in our history when it has been more urgent to heed Themba’s cautionary tale because we are now at great risk of oppressive forces derailing our progress.”Watch the trailer belowThe Suit also stars Phuti Nakene as Matilda and John Kani in a small, supporting role.The film has been selected for the Zanzibar and Durban film festivals, with Coetsee and Kani hoping that word of mouth and some critical success might lead to it being shown at other international short film festivals over the next year.While it might only be in short-film format, no expense has been spared in recreating the era, offering a visual quality worthy of any feature-length production, thanks to Coetsee and his team at Mandala Films.He hopes that success for The Suit will spur on more short film narratives that will celebrate local stories, both old and new.Source: Times Live

Most importantly, Glubble now features a very well thought-out photo sharing solution, the Glubble Family Timeline, which also smartly incorporates messages and status updates. In conjunction with the release of the new family timeline feature, Glubble also announced a new premium product today, which, for $39.95 per year, allows users to upload and store more photos per month than the service’s free offerings.Glubble also updated its Firefox toolbar, which now features a ticker that displays status updates from a user’s family members as they are posted on the service’s web site.We first reviewed Glubble’s browser plugin in 2007 (we called it ‘impressive’ back then) and we also took a closer look at the service’s web offering in late 2008. We really liked the service in its earlier iterations, and since then, it has only become better. For a more detailed look at Glubble’s features, please have a look at our earlier reviews. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… TimelineAlexander van Elsas, Glubble’s CEO, gave us a demo of the service last week and he was clearly proud of the new timeline feature. While a lot of photo sharing services have moved towards organizing photos based on events, Glubble decided to go with a strict chronological order. The top of the page features a calendar, where you can pick a date, and the second row then features thumbnails from the four preceding and following days.The timeline isn’t quite as fancy as thisMoment’s similar feature, but then, thisMoment, which came out of beta this week, is targeting a different audience. Glubble, however, does a great job at keeping things simple – an important aspect for a site that doesn’t target cutting-edge users but wants to be inclusive even to novices on the web.New CEO, New FundingIn addition to these new features, Glubble also announced that it received $1 million in a new funding round. With Alexander van Elsas, the company now also has a new CEO. Van Elsas used to be Glubble’s COO, and takes over from Willem-Jan Schutte, one of Glubble’s founders, who will remain on the non-executive board.

After sporting a short pixy hairstyle for long, cricket commentator and television host Mandira Bedi says that she now wants to look like a girl again and is growing her tresses back.”I have experimented a lot with my look. Now I am planning to grow my hair again. Since my hairs grow sideways, it will take a few months to take proper shape. But I promise that I am headed there,” Bedi said.Once called the ‘first lady of Indian cricket’, her noodle strap blouses and colourful saris hogged more spotlight than even the most professional cricket commentators, as she debuted as a commentator during the 2003 World Cup matches.However, for the past couple of years, she has seen her once soaring popularity dip after being replaced by new faces on the hosting circuit.On what prompted her to change the in-vogue pixie look, Bedi said she wanted to look feminine.”It is because I want to look like a girl again. I want to have a feminine look. My husband also teases me by saying that I have become his younger brother,” said Bedi who walked the ramp during the Kolkata leg of the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour.

WWW.medi-aibc.com has been set up to help the media industry find the right resources at the right time. It will list people, resources and data that can help, especially in areas related to advertising, television and journalism.Since the task is huge, mediaibc.com has chosen to design the engine and leave content generation to visitors. So now the technology is there, but the content is missing. In due course people will hopefully post details about themselves and the site will become content rich.Is this a fair expectation? Will the media business go online quickly enough to populate the database of mediaibc.com? It’s anyone’s guess, but it’s an encouraging start.Trend SetterZee Television CEO Vijay Jindal has started his own site at www.vijay-jindal.com – the home page of which says, “Either there are opportunities . . . or greater opportunities!” Perhaps not the best insight a CEO can offer, but there’s a cute picture of him which sort of makes up. His 16 years with The Times of India Group along with his work at Zee have been carefully recorded.There’s an entire book by him – well, it seems like a ready-to-publish book – on an approach to business, a lecture (in video) on the Digital Age and a page you can use to send him e-mail. A must visit site for other CEOs. In the months to come, CEOs will want to create their own sites and Jindal may have well set a trend with his.Desi TV GuideadvertisementTry www.theindiaguide.com (now with a new, more powerful database) if you’d like to have your week’s viewing e-mailed to you. The site, designed and maintained by Hemant Sharma’s Trisoft Design, is spiffy and the content fairly reliable.The site encourages you to trash your monthly cable guide and ignore your daily news paper. Because, as Sharma says,”Looking at TV listings in news papers is arduous and people don’t know what they are looking for.”So your query can be as specific as, “Show me all Comedy Movies and Travel Shows being aired on Friday evening in English” and indiaguide.com will produce an instant answer. The site is being billed as India’s first television portal-in due course it may perhaps justify the tag with a link to a page selling television sets.Steaming AwayEver visited www.chaitime.com? It’s a site steaming away with campus stuff, discussion boards, bolly-wood gossip, literature, music, sport. But its truly spectacular section is on astrology. Astrology for the career, Vedic astrology, Astrogems, match making, just about every way of looking up the future is available.But the best is Nadi readings: predictions made by sages about each individual on earth, preserved on a palm leaf. These predictions are made available at chaitime.com via a mouseclick (select the astrology link and follow it till you reach Nadi Readings). You may not believe a word of it all, but I had great fun and strongly recommend it.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino insists the club’s chairman Daniel Levy is a tough negotiator when it comes to transfers and contract negotiations.Pochettino feels he has an advantage over his predecessors when it comes to dealings with Levy because he doesn’t have an agent.The Argentine will face his suitors Manchester United on Sunday, with reports in the English press saying that he remains the favourite to be named the next permanent manager at Old Trafford.The former Southampton boss has shown little desire to leave Tottenham and recently stated just last week that he can envisage himself staying for the next two decades.But Pochettino says he’s aware that Levy makes it as difficult as possible for other clubs to take key personnel out of Spurs.Pochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“Daniel is, you know very well, it’s so tough to negotiate with him,” said Pochettino, according to ESPN.“It’s so difficult for different clubs in England to do business with him.”“For me, it’s the opposite. For me, if there was one person that was easy to do business with it was Daniel, personally. For me it wasn’t difficult — I think it was more difficult for him than me. It’s difficult because I’m the manager and he cannot upset me. If we’re talking about extending a contract or giving more money, you need to be careful.”“With agents, you can talk very openly and say anything that you want and then the agent will manage the situation. But when you’re talking directly to your manager, you need to be careful because one word can change the negotiation or change your mind. I think for him that was new and it was tough every time he needed to talk to me.”“I negotiate harder when I’m talking about my staff. I’m tougher when I talk about them because I feel a massive responsibility when I talk about the people I bring with me, because they depend on me.”
