Fight fire with funds

first_img continue reading » October 8, 2017, was like any other Sunday for Redwood Credit Union ($4.4B, Santa Rosa, CA). But business as usual was about to change.At close to 10 p.m. a fire started in the town of Calistoga. Boosted by 40 miles per hour wind gusts, the fire moved more than 12 miles in its first three hours and reached the city limits of Santa Rosa by 1 a.m. The credit union’s fire notification system kicked on that night, alerting Cynthia Negri, Redwood’s chief operating officer, to the fact the location of the next day’s all-staff meeting was on fire and the credit union’s corporate office was in the fire impact zone.Known now as the Tubbs Fire, this was one of at least 14 fires that raged in Northern California that night. By the time it was fully contained on Oct. 31, the Tubbs Fire burned nearly 37,000 acres and incinerated more than 5,700 structures, including nearly 3,000 homes. According to an estimate from Santa Rosa’s mayor, the fire caused $1.2 billion in damage and destroyed 5% of the city’s housing stock. It’s the most destructive wildfire in California history. 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Agencies satisfied with the sale of holiday trips and wintering 2018/19.

first_imgZagreb is also the first choice this year when it comes to Advent trips in Croatia. There was a slight increase in the number of agencies that offer organized arrivals in Zagreb with departures from Istria, Dalmatia, Slavonia, central Croatia and other regions. Most of them mostly offer day trips by bus during the weekend, and the prices range between 90,00 and 200,00 kuna per person. There is a noticeable increase in organized group arrivals from our neighboring countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Hungary, Slovenia, Serbia), as well as distant markets (Japan, China, Korea).  Hrvatski građani će na skijanje najviše krenuti u terminu zimskih školskih praznika koji traju od 24. prosinca 2018. do 11. siječnja 2019. godine. U tzv. „hrvatskom skijaškom tjednu“ od 5. do 12. siječnja 2019., kada su i cijene puno povoljnije, najčešće ćemo ih viđati u Gerlitzenu, Nassfeldu, Kronplatzu, Livignu, Marillevi, Folgariji, Passo Tonaleu, Sillianu, Cortini d’Ampezzo te slovenskim skijalištima (Kranjska Gora, Krvavec, Pohorje i dr.).  Kupres i Jahorina u susjednoj Bosni i Hercegovini vrlo su popularni zbog blizine i povoljnih cijena. Nekoliko agencija u ponudi ima skijanje na Platku i Sljemenu.   The results of the research confirmed the already well-known fact that Croatian citizens will traditionally spend Christmas with their families and friends this year as well, while they will decide to travel outside their place of residence during the New Year holidays and school holidays.  Prodaja novogodišnjih aranžmana u Hrvatskoj i inozemstvu kod većine je agencija za sada na razini prošlogodišnjih rezultata, dok manji dio njih bilježi rast oko 10 %. Pored tradicionalno popularnih Dubrovnika, Opatije i Splita, pojačano je zanimanje za aranžmane  za Bašku Vodu, Fužine, Rijeku, Pulu, Poreč, Rovinj, Vodice i toplice. Prema informacijama agencija, Naši građani najčešće se odlučuju dočekati Novu godinu u Beču, Budimpešti,  Londonu, Parizu, Pragu i Rimu. U ponudi su također Amsterdam, Atena, Barcelona, Istanbul, Kopenhagen, Moskva, Malta, Finska, Portugal, Sarajevo, Sicilija i Skopje. Ljubitelje dalekih putovanja i krstarenja očekuje zanimljiva ponuda putovanja s garantiranim polascima u brojna odredišta u Aziji, Africi, Južnoj i Sjevernoj Americi.  According to the data of the agencies, an increasing number of citizens are opting for an active winter vacation in the most popular ski resorts in Austria, Italy and Slovenia. Compared to last season, most UHPA members expect good results, with an average growth of 10% compared to last season. Sales for slightly more remote ski resorts in France are currently at the level of last year’s results.  Survey on the state of sales of holiday trips and wintering 2018/19. which was recently conducted by UHPA among its members, showed that the agencies are satisfied with the sale of holiday trips and winters.  According to the UHPA, hotel capacities in Zagreb and its surroundings, as well as private accommodation, have been sold out for several weeks, so it will be difficult for those who decide at the last minute to find accommodation in the Croatian capital. In terms of popularity, Čazma is following in the footsteps of Zagreb with the Christmas fairy tale on the Salaj family estate. Increased interest in travel during Advent is also recorded in Marija Bistrica, Opatija and Split.  center_img According to the survey results, most agencies expect sales growth of package deals in Croatia and abroad in the range of 10 to 15%. A small number of agencies stated that their sales remained at the same level, while very few recorded a slight decline in sales compared to the same period last year.   Photo: These are mostly group trips (54,2%), while individual trips account for 45,8%. Clients most often opt for hotel accommodation (79,2%) while a smaller part of reservations relates to private accommodation (20,8%). The prices of the arrangements have mostly remained at the level of last year, and the agencies point out that clients have the opportunity to realize a number of benefits through special discounts (first / last minute offer). Our citizens continue to prefer direct contact with the agency. 47,8% of them buy the arrangement in the agency’s branch, 39,1% did it through online platforms, 26,1% through intermediaries (subagents), while 4,3% each falls on social networks and a combination of some of the offered options of booking or purchasing arrangements. Regarding the method of payment, citizens most often choose a card (75%), while 25% of them pay for the arrangements in cash. Kada je riječ o adventskim putovanjima u inozemstvo, naši građani se najradije odlučuju za cjenovno povoljna jednodnevna ili dvodnevna putovanja autobusom u okolne države. Najpopularnija odredišta su Graz, Beč, Bratislava, Budimpešta, Prag i Salzburg. Od talijanskih odredišta, uz već dobro poznate Gardaland, Milano, Rim, Veronu i Veneciju u ponudi su mogu naći i Cinque Terre, Bergamo, Lago di Garda, Pompeji, Rimini, San Marino, Toskana i dr. Za one dubljeg džepa, agencije su pripremile višednevna putovanja zrakoplovom, uglavnom do europskih metropola poput Amsterdama, Barcelone, Lisabona, Londona, Rima ili pak dalekog Rovaniemija (Finska).  Porast prodaje adventskih putovanja na domaćem tržištu se kreće oko 10 %, dok je za inozemstvo riječ uglavnom oko 12 % u odnosu na isto razdoblje prošle godine.

Messi slams Barcelona exit rumours as ‘fake news’

first_imgLionel Messi has blasted reports that he could leave Barcelona for Inter or Newell’s Old Boys as ‘fake news’.Advertisement With football suspended indefinitely around the globe, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive and the Argentine superstar called out the reports on his Instagram page. Messi uploaded a story from an image of TNT Sports in his native Argentina and commented with ‘#FakeNews’ and called each possibility of him leaving the Catalan giants – to Inter and Newell’s respectively – as ‘lies’.“This is fake news and the same is true for the media reports about Newell’s. Both are false,” Messi wrote underneath.“Luckily nobody believes them.”Earlier this month, former Inter owner Massimo Moratti, as reported via Marca, claimed that the Milanese giants could move to sign the Argentine star.

Ghana Rugby adopts groundbreaking rugby management system

first_imgThe President of the Ghana Rugby Football Union, Mr. Herbert Mensah, announced the adoption of scrumIT, a groundbreaking Rugby Management System.According to Mr. Mensah, the absence of such system hindered the management of the Union.“When we took over the reign of Rugby in June 2014 there were no records or systems in place and it hampered the management of the Union as well as the compliance with best practice governance as required by the world governing body, World Rugby.”According to Mr. Mensah the GRFU put a lot of systems and records in place since June 2014 but it lacked seamless online interactivity between the GRFU and its members – the Regional Associations and Clubs.“scrumIT will provide the GRFU with a truly professional management system that will not only improve the management and governance of the Union but the Associations and Clubs. Rugby is about developing our youth and about playing matches and tournaments and it is essential that we help our Clubs to minimise time spent on administration,” Mr. Mensah said.scrumIT is a sophisticated online based Rugby Management System developed by ENS Software Solutions (Pty) Ltd in South Africa. According to the founder and owner of  ENS Software Solutions, Mr. Jaco Brooks, the system has been under development for quite some time and has been piloted and put to the test with WP Rugby and its 8 regions and 110 clubs in South Africa since 2013.“WP Rugby has benefitted tremendously from using scrumIT both in terms of administration and in terms of its ability to attract financial support from sponsors since the implementation of the system in 2014,” Mr. Brooks said.scrumIT boasts an impressive list of features including Participant Management, Communications Management, Membership Management, Player Statistics, Competition Management, Referee Management and Team Management.Mr. Brooks said the philosophy of his development team is to continuously assess client’s needs and requirements and to add functionality as and when the requirements arise.“The system has now been tested and proven and has now also been adopted by the Griquas Rugby Union in South Africa with interest shown by many of the other major Rugby Unions. In Africa Kenya, and now Ghana, have adopted scrumIT and there is a long list of Africa Rugby Unions who are keen to join up,” Mr. Brooks said. According to Mr. Thelo Wakefield, President of the WP Rugby Union, scrumIT offers them full control over all their rugby clubs and has truly become a pivotal management tool in the Western Province Rugby Union.  Mr. Abdul-Aziz Issah, Director and Secretary General of the GRFU, said the adoption of scrumIT as comprehensive, online and interactive Rugby Management System for Ghana Rugby is indeed a huge leap forward.“We at the GRFU are convinced that, once fully implemented, the benefits of scrumIT will by far outweigh the costs involved and will make a major contribution towards improving the quality of Ghana Rugby both on and off the field,” Mr. Issah said.Mr. Steve Noi, GRFU Director and Tournament Commissioner, who is also directing and overseeing the World Rugby “Get Into Rugby” (GIR) programme also expressed excitement at the adoption of scrumIT.“Schools are treated as clubs within the system and giving them interactive access to information related to school kids and GIR activities and matches or tournaments will help the school Rugby administrators to focus on skills development with minimum time spent on administrative tasks,” Mr. Noi said. scrumIt also contains a document management system that will make information such as regulations and rules as well as training and Rugby knowledge manuals and videos available to Rugby stakeholders on a 24/7 basis from anywhere in the world.Mr. Mensah said that the talent identification module will also become an invaluable tool to identify and focus on potentially high performance players in the future.He indicated tht communication is the lifeblood of any organisation therefore the powerful communications capabilities of the system will ensure that the whole Ghana Rugby family is on the same page at all times.It is expected that the migration of current systems and procedures to scrumIT will be completed in the next one to two months.last_img read more

Slopitch players look to put positive spin on what has been a disastrous season on the diamond

first_imgFlooding on the Nelson waterfront along with the worst June for rain on record has put the Nelson Mixed Slopitch League underwater this season.“It’s been a very trying season,” league spokesperson R.J. Warren told The Nelson Daily.“We played out first game since June 15 on July 3.”“Instead of Lakeside Ball Diamonds we’re calling them Lake Diamonds,” Warren added.The league started the season in May with 17 teams. The season was moving along briskly until June’s rains wiped most of the games.Then came the flooding along the Nelson waterfront, which cost the league even more games.The results forced the league reps to move games to Queen Elizabeth Park — two games are played each evening.Warren said league reps held a meeting to determine when, and where, the playoff tournament would be played — Salmo, Mount Sentinel or Queen Elizabeth Park.The result was an eight-to-eight vote split, which one team already folding for the season due to the cancellations.“We’re going to play the tournament at Queen Elizabeth,” said Warren.The tournament, originally set for July 20-22, begins Sunday, July 15 with preliminary round games.The Final is set for Sunday, July 22.Hopefully it doesn’t rain.last_img read more

Reel Adventures Fishing Report — Expect June to be better

first_imgMay had some inconsistent weather.  The month had some of the hottest days, where the water would finally warm up to the ideal temperature and our fish would become aggressive.  But, then there was also some of the coldest weather and storms that seemed to set us back again. However, the big fish are biting.  Rainbows over 20 pounds have been caught in the past few weeks, as well as Bull Trout up to 17 pounds. So things are looking good. We’ve had some really good days out there, and some slower days.  Nothing too consistent yet.  Seem to have one or two heavy feeding days each week, and then the rest of the week the fish seem to sit back and relax. But the good days make it all worth while.  Our best day last week saw three Rainbows over 15 pounds, as well as another eight fish between 5 – 8 pounds.  That makes for an exciting day on the water.  Had a great crew that day who appreciated our fishery and released most of their fish.  Thanks guys. We did have a bit of a flying ant hatch that seemed to trigger some feeding.  But the hatch was cut short by the weather change.  So, hopefully some hot weather will help with the hatches and keep the fish feeding. June is one of my favorite months.  The water has finally warmed up and the fish should become more aggressive for the next little while.What are they biting on??? Most fish are being caught on the surface now.  So, the usual bucktail flies have been working well on the choppy days.  And my favorite Lyman plugs have been producing good fish on both the calm days and the windy days. Fly colors are all over the map.  Not one consistent pattern lately.  But some of my best patterns have been:  Black/wht,  grey/wht, and green/wht.  Or some common numbered flies such as:  214, 215, 226, 228. And for my Lymans, the lucky numbers have been:  # 10, 16, 53, 55. Also, apex lures have been producing some good fish.  The usual colors at this time of year being:   black/white,  blue/yellow,  blue/green. That should about cover it for this month.  Hopefully this helps everybody catch a big one………….Tight lines………………..  Kerry Reed Reel Adventures Charters 250-505-4963 www.reeladventuresfishing.comlast_img read more
