Historical day for Istrian winemakers – adopted Strategy for the development of winemaking and viticulture in Istria until 2030.

first_imgThe Electoral Assembly of Vinistra unanimously supported the most important strategic document for the development of Istrian winemaking and viticulture. Istria thus became the first wine region in Croatia to make such a step forward and adopt a strategy for the development of winemaking and viticulture until 2030.Retaining the status of the region’s leader in winemaking and viticulture, increasing exports and competitiveness, strengthening the brand and following global marketing trends – are some of the most important goals of the Strategy for the Development of Istrian Viticulture and Enology until 2030, unanimously adopted in Porec at the Vinistra Electoral Assembly.During a quarter of a century of existence of the Association of Istrian Winemakers and Winegrowers, Istrian wine from an unrecognizable product has become a brand, Istrian winemakers have a world-renowned product, their wineries are attractive tourist destinations, and wine is one of the first three motives for tourists.An important role in the promotion of Istrian wines was played by Vinistra, the most popular and longest-running Croatian wine exhibition focusing on indigenous varieties of Malvasia and Teran, which delighted the most famous wine critics and marketing experts such as Steven Spurrier, Oz Clarke and Tony Hodges.In short, the goal of the Strategy is to strengthen the Istrian wine brand on the world wine scene. In the past 25 years, Istria has made the most in winemaking and viticulture in Croatia. The time has come for a new step forward. The basic motive in the development of the Strategy is the desire to maintain a leading position in Croatia and the region, but also to increase the number of arrivals of wine lovers from around the world who will visit Istria and enjoy our wines.”, Said Nikola Benvenuti, the new-old president of Vinistra, whose mandate for four years was unanimously reaffirmed at the Electoral Assembly.The strategy was developed with the strong support of the County of Istria and in cooperation with Vinistra, an association with 130 members who have a clear vision of what Istria should look like as a wine region in 2030. “Today, Istria has about 3200 hectares under vineyards and annually produces more than 20 million liters of wine, and much has already been done in terms of investing in vineyards and new agricultural techniques, so this document is an additional wind in the back for more than 130 Istrian winemakers and vineyard”, Concludes Benvenuti.Other regions also have vineyards and olive groves, maybe even better predispositions, but to have top quality it is necessary to work in the long run, educate yourself, network, raise technology and knowledge, and finally brand the whole story, which is extremely difficult in today’s world of wine and strong competition. . However, Istria started 25 years ago, a Master Plan for the development of tourism in the Istrian County was made, the Vinistra… association was founded, and today they are only reaping the fruits of many years of work and effort.Today, Istria, as the strongest enogastronomic region in Croatia, has its own edition of the Michelin guide, Michelin-starred restaurants and recommendations, Istria has been declared the best olive growing region in the world, and they are on the trail in terms of top quality wine. Nothing is accidental, not even the fact that Istria is our main tourist region and decades ahead of others in Croatia.RELATED NEWS:NIKOLA BENVENUTI, VINISTRA: ISTRIAN WINERS HAVE LONG RECOGNIZED THE STRENGTH OF THE BRAND, THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNITY AND ASSOCIATION FOR POSITIONING ON THE WINE MAP OF THE WORLDSAŠA ŠPIRANEC: WINERS MUST BE ORGANIZED IN FOUR GREAT ASSOCIATIONS: SLAVONIA, DALMATIA, ISTRIA AND KVARNER, AND HILLY CROATIAISTRIA FOR THE THIRD TIME IN A ROW IS DECLARED THE BEST QUALITY EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE REGION IN THE WORLDISTRIA GOT ITS MICHELIN GUIDElast_img read more

Kneelers fail to honor and respect country

first_imgAs a teacher with 37 years of experience, I always attempted to inspire my students with a love of country and a respect for our flag and our national anthem.I find myself appalled at the growing disrespect for our country, our flag and our anthem throughout America. I’m even more distraught as I see it occurring in my own backyard.Taking the knee at a Niskayuna High School football game and refraining to play the national anthem at the beginning of a high school pep rally in order to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for students makes absolutely no sense to me.In our country today, I find myself mourning a nation’s educational system that permits the foundation for a better America, built by dedicated and diligent educators throughout the years, to crumble before our eyes.I submit that we heed the words of President Ronald Reagan, “When we honor our flag we honor what we stand for as a nation — freedom, equality, justice, and hope.” I expect the same is true when we play or sing our national anthem.Pamela A.

Chinese minister blames police force for prison coronavirus cases

first_imgA top leader of China’s justice ministry blamed law enforcement on Monday for the hundreds of coronavirus cases discovered in prisons, calling them instances of poor disease control efforts.Authorities have revealed 555 infections in Chinese prisons, but no deaths among them, in an epidemic that has killed more than 2,700 and infected more than 78,000 on the mainland.”The transmission of the disease truly reflects some gaps in our management of prisons and in our prevention and epidemic control work,” said Xiong Xuanguo, deputy minister of the justice ministry. Topics : The women’s jail in the central city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, is 100 meters from a hospital and both facilities are serviced by the same bus stop, Xiong told a news conference held by the information office of China’s State Council or cabinet.For cases found at jails in the eastern provinces of Shandong and Zhejiang, he added, local security forces did not report they had been in contact with individuals from Hubei province, the capital of which is Wuhan.”Our police officers at every level did not make truthful reports,” he said. last_img read more

Ten beached pilot whales die in East Nusa Tenggara

first_img“There’s a possibility that more whales will get stranded.”Local authorities are still investigating how the whales became beached, but Ikram suspected that they had been following the current that carried plankton to the coastal area.“They were probably too busy eating and did not realize the tide was receding, hindering them from returning to the deep sea. We found scratches on their bodies, which they likely got from the coral reef while trying to swim back into the sea,” said Ikram.A short-finned pilot whale has an average size of 2 to 7 meters. While the species is categorized under Data Deficient in the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) red list, the whale is protected under the 2018 Environment and Forestry Ministerial Regulation.According to the Environment and Forestry Ministry, the Sawu Sea around Sabu Raijua is located within the whale’s migration route.The beaching occurred only a week after a dead blue whale found stranded and decaying on Na Batu Kepala Beach in Kupang Bay. (aly)Topics : Local fishermen found 11 pilot whales stranded on Lie Jaka and Bekel beaches in Ledeunu subdistrict, Sabu Raijua regency, East Nusa Tenggara, on Thursday morning.Only one made its way to the open sea while the other 10 died.“A fisherman identified as Riwu Willa found five whales at first while looking for seaweed in Lie Jaka Beach. Other fishermen then found another six around a dock in Bekel Beach,” Sabu Raijua Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Jack Seubelan said on Thursday. He added that the locals had tried to push the whales into the sea but only managed to save one.Authorities later buried the dead whales at the beach, but only after locals had cut up four of them and distributed the meat. The burial was done on Thursday by residents who were guided by officials of the Kupang Water Conservation Area Agency (BKKPN) by phone as they could not arrive at the beach until the next day.Read also: Beached dwarf sperm whale cut up, extracted for oil in BaliKupang BKKPN head Ikram Sangadji said the short-finned pilot whale usually lived in pods of up to 100 whales that have strong social bonds.last_img read more

Legalising prostitution legalises a fantasy – that sex does not involve the self

first_imgThe Irish Times 16 November 2014There are questions that are central to the debate about prostitution. Are there some things that should not be sold, even if a person is willing to sell them? And if you buy consent, does that destroy the meaning of consent?To look at the first question in a different way: is the buying of sex closer to buying a vote for planning permission than it is to buying a service? Are there some things that it is wrong to buy?Why is it that if someone buys a vote from a councillor, it is seen as corruption, but if someone buys the use of someone’s body, it is somehow liberation?One narrative sees prostitution merely as work. Whether I choose to wait on tables, or sell sex, it is all the sale of a service. To see prostitution in any other way is to be moralistic, and prudish.What people choose to do with their own bodies is their own business, and to suggest otherwise is to be paternalistic and entirely out of touch with modern reality. The only taboos are situations where there is force involved, or people are underage, or being exploited.Writer and activist Kajsa Ekis Ekman is a 34-year-old Swede who tackles this narrative head-on. She says that talk of selling sex makes it seem as if sex were a noun, or an object, that somehow can be sold independently of the self. read more

MBB : Jardine sparks SU with heady play late in win over Hoyas

first_imgScoop Jardine scored three points, went 1-of-7 from the field and turned the ball over four times against Georgetown on Wednesday. Most of the shots that he missed, he missed badly.Still, the senior point guard repeatedly found the ball in his hands as Syracuse struggled to break down the Hoyas’ 2-3 zone. And while he failed to create for himself, he said he got into a rhythm creating for his teammates in the second half.‘It’s controlling the game,’ Jardine said. ‘That’s my job. That’s what I’m here to do. That’s what makes our team run.’Although the rest of Jardine’s stat line was less than stellar, the senior point guard dished out eight assists —six of them in the second half and overtime —against Georgetown to help No. 2 Syracuse (24-1, 11-1 Big East) to a 64-61 overtime win over the No. 12 Hoyas (18-5, 8-4 Big East) in the Carrier Dome. He played all 25 minutes after halftime, and his six helpers in that span led to 17 points for the Orange, including Kris Joseph’s game-winning 3-pointer with 29 seconds left in overtime. To cap it off, Jardine forced Jason Clark into a turnover on Georgetown’s last possession that secured the win for SU.‘Scoop’s a great point guard,’ Joseph said. ‘I’ve been alongside him for four years now, and it’s just great to have a player like him on your side. I would hate to have to play against Scoop because he makes the right decisions.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJardine turned almost entirely into a passer in the second half and overtime against Georgetown. After playing only seven minutes in the first half, the senior started off the second with a layup and a foul over three Hoyas defenders to spark an 8-0 SU run.From there, it was his calming demeanor that took over the game for the Orange.‘Me controlling the team, I have the ability to get everybody all on the same page with my personality and the way I play,’ Jardine said. ‘So for the most part, today in the second half, I was able to do that.’Although Georgetown had played mostly man-to-man defense throughout the year, it relied on a 2-3 zone against the Orange. While it threw off his SU teammates, Jardine seemed unfazed by the different look.His first assist in the second half came just after the Hoyas took a 37-35 lead. The senior caught the Hoyas backline napping and connected with center Fab Melo for an alley-oop to tie the game.On Syracuse’s next possession, Jardine came around a C.J. Fair screen at the top of the key and dished off to an open Joseph on the left wing. Joseph then knocked down the triple in rhythm to put SU in front by two.‘I thought he was making plays (in the second half) rather than trying to make a shot,’ head coach Jim Boeheim said. ‘I thought he made some plays in the second half, and he got five or six assists trying to get in the lane and making plays.’Jardine set up two more 3s in regulation along with a three-point play for Melo that started with a dunk.With the scored tied at 61-61 in overtime, he turned a broken play into the game-winning triple.After a timeout, Boeheim’s original set fell apart when Georgetown’s defense collapsed on Joseph as he tried to drive to the hoop. The senior kicked it back out to Jardine with 10 seconds on the shot clock.Jardine then set up a new play, drove around a Melo screen on the right wing and found a wide-open Joseph on the left side for the game’s final bucket.‘Sometimes, that’s what happens in basketball,’ Jardine said. ‘You just have to play off of instinct in basketball, and that’s what I did right there.He then came up with an equally as important play on the defensive end by harassing Clark on the perimeter and knocking the ball free before the Georgetown guard knocked it out of bounds.While Jardine’s final stat line wasn’t perfect, the good still outweighed the bad for the Orange’s only true point guard.‘He’s really the only point guard that gets us into plays, gets us into set and makes plays,’ Boeheim said. ‘He’s going to make a bad play once in a while, but he makes good plays. And we need that. We need him doing that.’ Published on February 8, 2012 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more

Recruiting class has room to improve

first_imgIt’s been an intriguing week for USC football recruiting, as five-star quarterback and former Alabama recruit Ricky Town de-committed from the Crimson Tide and gave his verbal commitment to USC. Though there’s plenty of intrigue about Town’s potential at the college level, the high school junior (class of 2015) still isn’t going to put on a Trojan uniform until after next season. The class of 2014 recruiting season, however, is about to be finalized, and precisely a week from now, National Signing Day will set all the new recruits and rosters in stone.Though the vast majority of the Trojans’ 2014 recruits are expected to sign their letters next Wednesday, there are a couple key recruits the Trojans will need to pursue in order to take 2014’s recruiting class from “intriguing” to “outstanding.”The first of these recruits is Gardena, Calif. safety/athlete Adoree’ Jackson: listed at 5-foot-9 and a solid 182 pounds with a 4.44 40 yard dash, Jackson has yet to commit. According to, however, Jackson is a solid favorite to follow in the footsteps of his fellow Junipero Serra High School alumni Marqise Lee, George Farmer and Robert Woods in taking his talents to South Central.Watching film of the 2012 CIF SS Western title game between Junipero Serra and Chaminade, it becomes quickly apparent that Jackson is no ordinary athlete. On one particular kick return, the recruit’s next-level athleticism is on full display. He has the long, fluid strides of a track runner and transitions effortlessly between evading defenders, maintaining his balance and immediately firing on some world-class jets to torch his pursuers.Jackson seems to have an otherworldly grasp of his body’s internal momentum, to the point where he’s spinning and pirouetting naturally not just in a flashy way to avoid defenders, but employing the circular motion with force to twist free from poorly executed shoestring tackles.This type of fluidity of movement makes him best suited at a defensive back position and as a kick returner, though the possibilities offered by his athletic versatility are practically endless. He has fantastic hip flexor and upper body control, and could make for a very long 60 minutes for opposing Pac-12 receivers. Jackson is a consensus five-star athlete, and though he hasn’t set a schedule for his last official visits quite yet, his final three schools (in no particular order) include USC, that one school across town which will remain unnamed and the University of Florida.Another top recruit and five-star athlete the Trojans could haul in is John “JuJu” Smith from Long Beach Poly High School in Long Beach, Calif. According to 247sports’ “Crystal Ball,” Smith is heavily favored to commit to USC. Smith is the 20th ranked player in the nation according to the site and the No. 4 recruit in the state of California.Smith, who was a two-way star in high school, draws comparisons to another Long Beach Poly graduate: Cal alumnus and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson. But position and high school are where the comparisons end. Whereas the 5-foot-10 DeSean Jackson had game-changing speed and agility that translated well to big-play potential on offense, Smith’s strength and coverage instincts on intermediate routes could land him a spot at free safety.This assessment is not to rule out any possibilities. A review of Smith’s game film against Santa Ana-Mater Dei reveals one of his greatest assets: Smith’s size and wingspan. It would be unsurprising if Smith came to USC and became part of an already deep wide receiving corps. At 6-foot-1, 200 lbs., the Long Beach Poly senior already has professional size and is capable of breaking tackles and tacking on yards after the catch.Adding Adoree’ Jackson and John “Juju” Smith could be two huge flourishes on the USC recruitment haul, and could bump the Trojans into the top 20 of overall rankings for recruiting classes.Though the Trojans could run into depth issues in the trenches with the departure of defensive lineman George Uko and offensive lineman Marcus Martin, junior college transfer Claude Pelon, who enrolled for the spring semester earlier this week, should be part of the solution to that problem.The Trojans have also addressed needs at the offensive line by recruiting two of California’s top three offensive linemen in Toa Lobendahn and Viane Talamaivao. Both are rated as consensus four-star recruits and will provide valuable depth on the Trojans’ thinning offensive line.In many ways, 2014 is shaping up to be a highly successful recruiting class for the USC Trojans -— not only as a way to build depth on the roster, but laying the foundation for future success.So sure, Ricky Town is verbally committed to USC for the recruiting class of 2015 — but the Trojan faithful have plenty to be excited about in the more immediate future. Euno Lee is a senior majoring in English literature. He is also the Managing Editor of the Daily Trojan. His column “Euno What Time it is” runs Wednesdays.UPDATE: in an earlier version of this article it was reported the Trojans would need to replace senior offensive lineman Aundrey Walker. The article has been corrected to refer to Marcus Martin, who will be leaving to the NFL.last_img read more
