Adriagate has successfully integrated a local travel agency into its business

first_imgAfter many years of successful business, the travel agency Adriagate has taken a step forward and integrated the business of the Primosten agency Raduča. Based on family values ​​and a friendly relationship with family accommodation renters, TO Raduča is one of the most prominent local travel agencies, which is more than a good reason why Adriagate saw its opportunity, and vice versa, for synergy and integration.The need to implement and use new technological solutions to adapt to market demands, said the Erak family, owners of the Raduca agency, to consider integrating their business with a technologically stronger travel agency that will be able to ensure their further development and progress. “At this point, Adriagate was a logical choice. Since we have been monitoring the business of this agency for some time, we were familiar with the policy of expanding and opening Adriagate branches throughout the Adriatic. We want to ensure further improvement in work and sales, but also to maintain the core values ​​that we have advocated all these years.“Stated the Erak family, and the stability of the success of TO Raduča is guaranteed because Goran and Sabina Erak will continue to act as the main coordinators and managers of the Raduča agency under the leadership of the Adriagate travel agency.For Adriagate doo, this is a significant step towards expanding its business with the aim of strengthening its position and growth in the Croatian market, where they already have a notable role. This business integration project is important for strengthening our position on the market in Dalmatia, but also in the whole of Croatia. We are grateful for the understanding, cooperation and support of the Erak family, which enabled a quick and efficient business transition. This was a demanding undertaking but successfully completed, to the mutual satisfaction. I would like to emphasize that we are extremely glad that the Erak family has joined our team and we believe that together we are ready for new successes both in the upcoming season and in the seasons to come. We hope that this is just the beginning of a beautiful Croatian story in empowering local travel agencies in order to improve business.Said the director of Adriagate doo Mate Balić.Adriagate doo is one of the leading travel agencies in Croatia, and monitoring new technological achievements and their implementation in business has provided them with partnerships with numerous renowned world portals, including Booking.com and AirBnB.

Upset over plowing on Eastern Parkway

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionI live on upper Eastern Parkway, a boulevard in Schenectady, although the city refers to them as “island streets.” Up until this year, the plows would come through and plow along the curb next to the sidewalk, then make their turn and come back and plow along the curb next to the “island” in the center, thereby putting the majority of the snow on the island and clearing the street for parking.Apparently, someone made the brilliant decision to only plow half the street and leave piles of snow in front of the sidewalk curbs. Three plows have gone by our house within an hour. Not one plow cleared the parking side of the street. All three of the people who live in this house are disabled in one way or another and incapable of shoveling snow off the street to allow for parking — especially heavy, wet snow from the storm last week.I called the mayor’s office and spoke with Linda, who referred me to Colleen, who was unavailable. I left a message with my phone number to ask for a return call. By 3:45 p.m., the day of the storm, I hadn’t received a return phone call, so I once again called the mayor’s office and spoke with Linda, who said she would take everything down and send an e-mail to the proper department.Within a half hour of our conversation, a plow went past the house. It didn’t plow the snow away from the curb in front of the house. Would someone please explain just what the problem is? There are no cars in front of the houses on Eastern Parkway (headed east) from Dean Street to Palmer and Ashmore avenues, as we all double park our cars in driveways to allow for street plowing. So, why aren’t you plowing the parking side of the street?Barbara KerrSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsSchenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsTroopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stopSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musiclast_img read more

Barkley sets sights on Brazil

first_img The 19-year-old made his debut from the bench against Moldova in the World Cup qualifier at Wembley two weeks ago and has explained how England manager Roy Hodgson has given him the incentive of a place in the squad if he continues his form. “I have set my sights on the World Cup,” Barkley said in his first interview with national newspapers. Press Association “It’s a goal for me. It will be hard, but through hard work hopefully I can get on the flight there. “He (Hodgson) told me to keep working hard and keep doing what I have been doing since the start of the season and if there comes a time that, because I am young, I’m on the bench, don’t let your head go down. “He believes in me. He has high hopes for me. He sees me being able to go to Brazil if I keep progressing as I have done since the start of the season.” However, Barkley, who joined Everton aged 11, has been advised to stay at Goodison Park for the development of his career by the captain of the club’s biggest rivals – Steven Gerrard. Barkley was sent out on loan to Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds while David Moyes was in charge at Everton, but he is now back in the fold and has secured a regular starting spot under new Toffees manager Roberto Martinez. Barkley said: “He (Gerrard) told me I’m from Liverpool, a local lad playing for the team I support, and there is nothing better. “He’s done that throughout his career. He said playing is the main thing, going to another team and not playing would be no good for my development. “I was a bit star-struck when I first joined up but Steven was good to me when I was away. I sat next to him on the coach and he gave me loads of advice. “He said the big hitters are going to be looking at me but the main thing for me is to stay with the club I’m at, the team I support and love, which is Everton.” center_img Ross Barkley might be at the start of his England career but the Everton midfielder is setting his sights on playing in next summer’s World Cup.last_img read more

Man Utd Cleared in Pogba Deal

first_imgFIFA has cleared Manchester United but opened disciplinary proceedings against Juventus over Paul Pogba’s world record transfer, football’s governing body announced yesterday.The France midfielder returned to United in a deal worth more than $111 million in August 2016 from the Italian giants.In May, FIFA began an inquiry into the move, requesting information about the headline transfer from United. But in a statement FIFA confirmed that while United was in the clear of any wrongdoing, it was taking action against Juventus.“We can confirm that disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Juventus FC.“We can also confirm that no disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Manchester United,” the statement said.It added: “As proceedings are ongoing please understand we cannot comment further at this stage.”Pogba’s move came under particular scrutiny amid reports the player’s agent Mino Raiola would earn some 49 million euros from the deal.Raiola is suspected of a conflict of interest, as he was at the time agent for Pogba, Juventus and Manchester United.In May, French website Mediapart, quoting the Football Leaks documents, claimed: “Pogba in reality cost 127 million euros to Manchester United with 49 millions going into Raiola’s pockets and only 78 millions into Juve’s bank account.”According to the investigative site, Raiola “didn’t appear to let Manchester United know that he was also working for Juventus,” an arrangement that is outlawed under English rules.Pogba, 24, started his career with United but made just three appearances in the Premier League before heading to Italy, after an apparent falling out with then manager Alex Ferguson.He flourished in Serie A, winning four league titles with Juventus between 2012 and 2016.Pogba appeared in the 2015 Champions League final, which Juventus lost 3-1 to Barcelona.At the same time, the powerful midfielder made himself a mainstay of the French national team.He made his debut in March 2013, just a week after his 20th birthday, in a World Cup qualifier against Georgia.He also featured as part of the 2014 French World Cup squad and was named the tournament’s best young player.Pogba’s performances at the 2016 European Championship helped attract the attention of his former club Manchester United, under new manager Jose Mourinho.Last season he helped propel United to a first ever Europa League title, scoring in his team’s 2-0 victory over Ajax in Stockholm on May 25.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Statement from Clippers President Andy Roeser on Donald Sterling’s TMZ recording

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Andy Roeser, president of the L.A. Clippers, today issued the following statement:“We have heard the tape on TMZ. We do not know if it is legitimate or it has been altered. We do know that the woman on the tape — who we believe released it to TMZ — is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would “get even.” Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life. He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them. He is also upset and apologizes for sentiments attributed to him about Earvin Johnson. He has long considered Magic a friend and has only the utmost respect and admiration for him–both in terms of who he is and what he has achieved. We are investigating this matter.”last_img read more

Three takeaways from Lakers star LeBron James’ return

first_img NBA All-Star 2019: Jazz president, coach blast selection process after Rudy Gobert left off roster Here are three takeaways from James’ return.He is not back to 100 percentNo one who watched James on Thursday would think the 34-year-old was back to 100 percent after missing 17 games with a groin injury. Related News LeBron loves spacing and also creates itJames loves to play with shooters for a couple of reasons. For one, good 3-point shooting teams have a leg up in today’s NBA, and two, when shooters space the floor, there is more room on the inside for James to get to the basket.But, while James loves to play on teams with spacing, he also creates it on his own. His return game was a perfect example. James always demands a bigger defender and can drag that defender away from the basket simply with his presence.In doing that, the paint is easier to exploit and there will almost always be an extra defender with an eye on James. The defense completely changes because he’s on the court. LeBron James made his triumphant return Thursday against the Clippers as the Lakers defeated their city rival 123-120 in overtime at the Staples Center.James scored 24 points while adding 14 rebounds and nine assists in the win. First of all, James started off the game passing up shots rather than attacking the rim. Throughout the first half he had open looks and open lanes and never really attacked.James clearly wasn’t confident in his legs as he never really drove to the basket throughout the first 24 minutes of play. That is understandable. This type of injury takes time to completely heal and James clearly isn’t his old self yet.Best thing for Brandon Ingram?James getting hurt may have been a good thing for the Lakers. While that might be a little bit cliche, it is undeniably true for Brandon Ingram.In the five games before James’ return, Ingram averaged 23.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists. The 23.2-point average was the best over a five-game stretch in his career and his 16-for-20 shooting night in a loss to the 76ers on Tuesday was his best performance of the season.The Lakers will be better if Ingram can create opportunities on his own and he is looking more than confident enough to get into the lane and score, while drawing fouls in the process. He had 19 points, four rebounds and four assists in the game Thursday.last_img read more
