Representatives of the institutions of the Croatian Employment Service of the Split Regional Office, the Ministry of the Interior of the Split Police Department, the Croatian Pension Insurance Institute, Split Branch Office and representatives of employment agencies from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina will also be present. The primary goal of this round table is to define the broader context of the issue, while participating in a constructive discussion and finding possible solutions through the synergy of the real sector and institutions. Preparations for the new season are in full swing, and the workforce continues to be a problem plaguing many business people. Although labor import license quotas have increased by more than 100 percent this year, to 65.100, and the trade sector is listed for the first time in the distribution of licenses, the search for seasonal workers remains problematic and the number of tourist arrivals and overnight stays is tall. The tourism sector accounts for more than 23 percent of Split-Dalmatia County’s GDP, and the trade sector accounts for more than 18.200 jobs. The Croatian Chamber of Commerce is organizing a round table on “Foreign workforce – challenges and solutions for a successful tourist season.” The round table will be held on February 26 at 11 am in the Croatian Chamber of Commerce – Split County Chamber, and you can send applications via the form HERE.last_img read more

The Warriors won 129-105. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)CLEVELAND — Their fierce rivalry is over, reduced to only memories.The Warriors and Cavaliers had something special, four straight NBA Finals that Steph Curry will one day savor.ADVERTISEMENT This was the first matchup between the Warriors and Cavaliers since LeBron James left as a free agent last summer. The Cavs are starting from scratch after a four-year run as Eastern Conference champions, and they’re struggling without All-Star Kevin Love, who is recovering from foot surgery and while forward J.R. Smith is on a forced hiatus.There are no playoff plans in Cleveland, where fans are keeping as close an eye on Duke’s talented freshmen players as what the Cavs are doing.Tristan Thompson, one of the only holdovers from those powerful Cavs teams, had 19 rebounds and 14 points. Rookie Collin Sexton scored 20 points for Cleveland.For Warriors coach Steve Kerr, the Golden State-Cleveland Finals, a four-act play loaded with drama and intensity, had it all.“Some of the best basketball I’ve ever seen in my life,” Kerr said before the game. “Obviously, they have a new team and so you move on. Part of me is a little nostalgic for that.”But those days are gone.“It’s not a rivalry, it’s another game,” Kerr added. “They’re trying to build something and we’re trying to continue our run for as long as we can.”The Warriors had trouble shaking the Cavs until Curry took control.Golden State’s lead was just 10 when he got fouled while hitting a 3-pointer and completed the four-point play. He then buried another 3 and followed that with two free throws to put the Warriors ahead 116-99 with 5:34 left.Kerr isn’t surprised Curry is back to being himself. Fully healed after missing 11 games with a strained groin, Curry scored nine points in less than a minute midway through the fourth quarter to help the Warriors pull away for their eighth straight win over their former Finals rivals. Curry added nine rebounds and seven assists, and Durant had 10 rebounds and nine assists.It was Golden State’s first visit to Cleveland since June, when the Warriors completed a sweep to win their third championship in four years.Nothing in Quicken Loans Arena felt or looked the same.“The energy before the game, after the game,” Durant said, noting the changes in Cleveland. “There were more media members here the last couple of years. We were talking about that before we ran out on the floor. That was a circus right here during the Finals. You start thinking about the great memories you had, especially the championship.“I’m sure we’ll feel those feelings every time we walk into the building.”ADVERTISEMENT No.13 lucky for Orlando Bloom Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew View commentslast_img read more

‘Ideal and Beneficial’

first_imgResidents of Bassa Town Community in Paynesville have hailed the founder and proprietor of the Leigh-Sherman Community College for her decision to relocate the school in their community.According to the residents, the Leigh-Sherman Community College and Executive Secretarial School, owned and operated by Madam Theresa Leigh-Sherman, is the first ever institute of higher learning in the entire commercial district of Red-Light. They said it was beneficial for them to have an institution nearby to cater to their educational needs.The Leigh-Sherman Community College originally had its campus in Fiamah, Sinkor. The administration recently relocated its academic activities to the newly constructed campus in Paynesville. The building was dedicated by Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai Friday, April 25.The institution, which has operated in the country for over 38 years, is considered a pioneer and one of Liberia’s premier training institutions in the secretarial sciences and other vocations.Residents living around the school’s old campus said the concentration of almost every major activity, including academic, in the city center has caused it (the city) to be jam-packed.This situation has led to major side-effects such as transportation and financial problems for students seeking higher education. A situation that is difficult for most people.Madam Leigh-Sherman told the audience at the dedication ceremony that the decision to relocate the school was the result of a survey conducted by administration which showed that 80 percent of students live on the outskirts of the city.A resident, Aaron Harding, 25, who lives close to the new campus, said the institution would serve as a light in the community if the young people took advantage of the opportunities that it would provide.Mr. Harding said, “Most young people in this community are idle. This institution provides the kind of opportunities that young people, especially girls, need to improve their lives.”Mr. Harding expressed hopes the arrival of the school would come with scholarship opportunities for students.“We know many youths of this community are unable to pay their own fees. Most of our parents are not working. That is why we need scholarships.”Mary Kollie Jallah, 36, who sells toiletries in Red-Light, said it was a great idea to bring the Leigh-Sherman Community College to Red-Light. “I’m very happy that this school has been brought into this community. Some of us have heard about it for a long time. It is known to be a quality school. Most of my friends graduated from there and they are doing great,” she explained. Since its inception 38 years ago, the Leigh-Sherman Community College has successfully trained and placed over five thousand administrative professionals in positions with government, private corporations, Non-governmental organization and the Liberia Diplomatic Corps.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
