3 ways to learn more every day

He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details For students, the summer is now over. For you professionals, school’s out forever. But just because you’re no longer enrolled in college, doesn’t mean you can’t learn something new every day. Here are 3 ways you can keep learning even though you’re no longer in school.Always read: Maybe you wanna learn how to change the spark plugs in your ’92 Ford Ranger, maybe you want to find out what’s so cool about that Alexander Hamilton fella, or maybe you just want to find out what happens in the next installment of your favorite adventure series. It really doesn’t matter what it is, just keep reading. You’re giving your brain a workout and you’re teaching yourself something along the way.Be smart with your apps: If you’re like me, when you have to kill a minute at a red light or you’re stuck waiting on an oil change, you’re probably looking at Instagram, Facebook, or ESPN. Instead of making those your go-to apps, why not check out something like iTunes U or Duolingo. These apps can teach you all kinds of things you don’t know, including a new language! Bury those social apps in a folder and make them harder to access when you’ve got a few minutes to kill.Be a social networker: I’m not talking about Twitter or Snapchat. I mean be social. And get better at networking. When you’re having discussions with others, you’re always learning. Whether someone has a like-minded viewpoint or not, they probably have something to say that has value to you.last_img read more

New logo and slogan of the Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board presented

first_imgThe Tourist Board of Vukovar-Srijem County has a new visual identity and slogan, and the tourist offer has been enriched by holograms of Lavoslav Ružička, Nikola Iločki and Ban Josip Šokčević, which were presented in Vukovar.New visual identity and holograms of historical figures were made within the tourist project Virtual and Cultural Tourism – ViCTour, which is co-financed by the Interreg IPA cross-border cooperation program Croatia – Serbia 2014-2020. The value of this project is 920.000 euros, of which Vukovar-Srijem the county, as its holder, participated with 280.000 euros.With our new visual identity, we are positioning Vukovar-Srijem County as a unique, complete and recognizable tourist destination called “Srijem and Slavonia”, points out Rujana Bušić Srpak, director of the Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board, and adds: “Until now, the logos of individual city tourist boards of our county did not have common elements, but now, both visually and communicatively, through a common slogan “Woven with gold”, a common connection and belonging to a unique destination is recognized. Nature and man’s relationship with it are the foundation of the spirit of Srijem and Slavonia”The new visual identity is inspired by the work of Albert Kinert, a native of Vinkovci, one of the greatest Croatian graphic artists and illustrators. The golden color of ears of grain, corn, sunflower, grapes or Traminer caught in a glass, leaves of rich forests, costumes and ducats, all the way to the sunshine itself, are just some of the images of this area that are illustrated simply, modernly and somewhat unexpectedly. Innovative tourist product: Holograms of Lavoslav Ružička, Nikola Iločki and Ban Josip ŠokčevićTourist offer  The Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board has also been enriched with holograms  Lavoslav Ružička, Nikola Iločki and Ban Josip Šokčević, who were presented in Vukovar, and who for the first time in Croatia, but also beyond, “revived” historical figures.Nobel laureate Lavoslav Ružička in his birth house in Vukovar speaks in the first person about many interesting things from his life, Ban Josip Šokčević welcomes visitors to the City Museum in Vinkovci, and King Nikola Iločki can be met in the Curia Brnjaković.Božo Galić, prefect of Vukovar-Srijem County, emphasized the importance of such facilities for the tourist offer of this area “Holographic representation of famous people who were born or lived in some part of their lives in the Vukovar-Srijem County, is a unique tourist offer that does not exist in Croatia. Schoolchildren are already visiting these locations in large numbers, and we believe that adults will also be interested in these interesting projections, which aim to revive the spirit of the past through modern technologies.”, Said Galic.What did Ružička deserve the Nobel Prize for, why do churches ring at noon and what does it have to do with Nikola Iločki and what is the role of Ban Šokčević in the construction of the main railway lines in Croatia? “first hand”.Photo: Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Boardlast_img read more

Total expenses rose 1 percent. The Company’s profit increased by 54 percent and amounted to HRK 38,4 million. A quality marina system is extremely important for nautical tourism and it is great to hear how ACI is constantly improving its marinas and services, but they are also focused on socially and environmentally responsible business. View of ACI marina Split For Adriatic Croatia International Club (ACI) 2018 was a record year. Due to the sales and investment activities of the Company, a significant increase in operating and total revenues was achieved. All ACI marinas have become holders of three ISO certificates, and the introduction of the fourth is underway, which confirms the focus on responsible business, energy use and environmental protection. An additional recognition of ACI marinas are the “Blue Flags”, awarded in as many as 18 marinas, for sustainable management and governance of the sea and coastal zone. Also, the most significant investment project in the history of ACI was completed, the complete reconstruction of ACI marina Rovinj, which represents a turn in access to nautical tourism, marina offer and services for sailors, and is categorized by advanced technology, safety, luxury and beauty. Other significant investments in the reporting period include the reconstruction of the service pier plateau and the purchase of a 30-ton crane in the ACI marina Pomer (HRK 3,1 million), extension of piers in the ACI marina Pula (HRK 1,3 million), reconstruction of the pool facility in ACI marina Dubrovnik (HRK 865 thousand) and construction of an additional parking lot (HRK 173 thousand).

This season, the anchorage in the bays of Vozarica and Srednja Draga near the ACI marina Skradin for vessels up to 15 meters longer has started operating. During 2018, ACI continued with strategic changes in business with a more significant focus on raising the quality of services, attracting new customers and researching the market potential of the Adriatic. Significant steps have been taken towards modernization and business progress, such as business digitization and the introduction of CRM systems. A number of smaller and larger investments were made in order to improve the quality of service provision, which was confirmed through the awarding of the CNTB “Tourist Flower” awards, in which the marinas Dubrovnik and Split received awards for the best medium marinas this year (2nd and 3rd place). As of this season, boaters also have at their disposal a mobile application with digital services and information. ACI marina Rovinj Photo: Facebook / ACI Marinaslast_img read more
