The deadline within which cities and municipalities must make a decision on the amount of the lump sum is January 31, 2019. RELATED NEWS: Also, the question arises as to what over 100.000 renters do in their local communities with the organization of the same public forums and the opening of a dialogue with the City Council (representatives of the local population) who make the decision on the amount of the lump sum. This directly affects and affects the business of private renters, and if there is now no dialogue and the need to openly discuss the amount of the lump sum, then the problem is in the renters themselves. When the decision is made on the amount of the lump sum per bed, then it is too late to “Facebook smart” and call for the “destruction” of private accommodation. It is primarily the responsibility of private landlords to be actively involved in the discussion and open a dialogue with City representatives. Today, starting at 18:30 pm in the Rector’s Palace on Cres, the first public forum will be held on the amount of the lump sum per bed, ie accommodation unit. WITH THE ENTRY IN THE NEW YEAR, THE RESIDENCE TAX WAS INCREASED The law stipulates that the lump sum may not be less than HRK 150 or more than HRK 1.500. However, if the city or municipality does not make a decision on the amount of the flat tax within the given deadline, then according to the Act, the lump sum will be 750 kuna per bed. RENTERS HAVE THE MOST BENEFITS FROM TOURISM? Currently, the amount of the lump sum in the area of Cres is 300,00 kn, and as they point out from the Cres Landlords Association, the association’s leadership wants to hear the landlord’s opinion before opening an official dialogue with the City. More information about the public forum – Flat tax on the island of Cres, see HERE It is interesting that this is the first public forum on this topic, at least as far as I know. Also, this is the only right way to develop the local community through dialogue and constructive discussion, so support the organizers and come to the public discussion.

Szczesny told Polish talk show Prosto w Szczene: “Yes, we all have an iMac. “It took a very long time because he couldn’t process that red card and insisted high and low that he was not doing anything wrong. “It took him a bit, about two months of arguing, but we all have received an iMac.” Ronaldo wasn’t the only one to fall foul of Allegri’s punishment system, however. The former Arsenal goalkeeper revealed that he’d also been forced to fork out on presents for his team-mates, after being late for training.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Wojciech Szczesny has revealed that Juventus team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo was made to buy the entire Juventus squad iMacs after his 2018 red card against Valencia. On his Champions League debut for the Old Lady, the Portuguese superstar was reduced to tears after being red carded for pulling the hair of opposition defender Jeison Murillo. Juventus went on to win 2-0 anyway, but boss Massimiliano Allegri’s disciplinary rules at the club stated that following a misdemeanour, the perpetrator must buy all of his team-mates a gift as an apology. Despite superstar status, CR7 was not above this rule, although he tried to wriggle out of it. Juve’s No7 was so incensed at the decision, that for two months he refused to take his punishment, insisting that he’d done nothing wrong. But eventually, Allegri calmly showed who was boss – and Ronaldo’s team-mates all ended up with new iMac computers.Advertisement
Lawrenceburg, IN-On Friday a Dillsboro man turned himself in at the Dearborn County Jail on charges of possession of child pornography after a warrant was issued for his arrest following an investigation by Indiana State Police Detectives with the Indiana Crimes Against Children Unit.The investigation began in May 2019 when the Indiana State Police were contacted after an internet tip was provided to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. During the course of the investigation, detectives determined that Karl Hoffrogge, age 20, Dillsboro, Indiana had requested and received nude pictures from a juvenile female through a social media site in January and February 2019. According to officials, when the offense occurred, Hoffrogge was an assistant wrestling coach at South Dearborn Middle School in Aurora, Indiana where the victim was a student.After reviewing the investigation, the Dearborn County Prosecutor’s Office issued a warrant for Hoffrogge on one count of possession of child pornography, class 6 felony, and two counts of attempted possession of child pornography, class 6 felonies.Hoffrogge was incarcerated at the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center pending his initial appearance in the Dearborn County Circuit Court.
Woods, who replaced McIlroy at the top of the rankings earlier this year, had never had a bogey-free round in 55 previous attempts in the tournament, but at least carded a five-under 67, his first sub-70 opening round in the £6.1million event, which offers more than £1million to the winner. McIlroy had reaped the benefits of a conservative approach after missing the cut in his previous three appearances in golf’s ‘unofficial fifth major’ with a scoring average of 74. Starting from the 10th, McIlroy carded five birdies in a back nine of 31, including at the treacherous par-three 17th after a superb approach to seven feet on the island green. He could only find one more birdie coming home – pitching to two feet on the par-five second – but also saved par from short of the green on the fifth and from a greenside bunker on the eighth. With scoring conditions almost perfect for the early starters, Steve Stricker, Casey Wittenberg and Hunter Mahan all finished five under and were joined by Woods, Webb Simpson and Ryan Palmer. Sergio Garcia and Padraig Harrington were five off the lead after rounds of 68, while Lee Westwood matched the 69 of Masters champion Adam Scott. The most remarkable round of the day came from Westwood’s Ryder Cup team-mate Peter Hanson, who started from the 10th with a double bogey and took eight on the 18th, but also had seven birdies and an eagle in a two-under 70. Vijay Singh, who on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the PGA over its handling of his anti-doping case, finished two over after a 74, one shot better than Ian Poulter who wrote on Twitter: “Not the best day in the office. Followed by a urine sample in a cup for our drug friends. It’s ok I haven’t taken any horn juice lately haha.” That was a reference to the deer antler spray Singh admitted to taking in January which was said to contain a banned substance. Castro carded an eagle and seven birdies in a nine-under-par 63 which matched the course record set by Fred Couples in 1992 and equalled by Greg Norman two years later. However, world number two Rory McIlroy shot a flawless 66 to share second place with former Masters champion Zach Johnson, while Tiger Woods was set to do the same until his only bogey of the day on the 18th after failing to get up and down from over the green. World number 267 Roberto Castro was the surprise leader after the first round of the prestigious Players Championship, but the top two players in the rankings were ominously poised at Sawgrass.

Birminghan: India’s attack will have to show patience to take 20 wickets and in the fickle English weather, it could be a virtue for the batsmen as well, Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane said on Monday.The five-Test series starts with the first match in Birmingham on Wednesday.“There is always help for bowlers in England, but that doesn’t mean it is easier for the bowlers. They need to be patient and bowl in the good areas. They have to back their own skills instead of trying to take wickets from both ends” Rahane said.During a media interaction two days prior to the series opener, the batsman added, “If one bowler can play the support role well then it will lead to wickets. To bowl patiently and on spot is crucial to success.“It is a great opportunity for the bowlers to prove that we can take 20 wickets in a Test match consistently, like we had done in South Africa. Nobody expected us to take 20 wickets in all three Test matches.“At the same time they should not put extra pressure on themselves and they should just look to enjoy the moment. They need to back themselves and believe that our bowling unit is the best in the world.”As far as his team’s bowling attack was concerned, Rahane was brimming with optimism, despite the absence of strike bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar.“Our pace bowlers are very experienced. Mohammed Shami and Umesh were here in 2014 as well. They’ve been doing so well for us, not only in India but outside as well. In South Africa, we got all 60 wickets (during the Tests) and our fast bowlers bowled really well.“It is a challenge to bowl in England but I am really confident about them – not only Umesh and Shami but also Ishant, who came here and played some county games.“We have Jasprit Bumrah as well. We have an attack that can disrupt opponents. But yes, it will be a challenge for them to bowl patiently and bowl in the right areas for a long period of time,” he added.India had an intense practice session at Edgbaston after their extra practice session on Sunday was washed out owing to heavy rains. Rahane said that they have had ample practice and the rest will come down to mindset.“In England, patience is the key. It depends on the weather—if it’s sunny it’s good to bat, but if it gets cloudy then definitely it’s good for the bowlers. As a batting unit, I feel that challenging yourself and backing your own game rather than copying someone else is important.“If you’re set, try to play a big innings. If the weather changes, it’s important for the batsman to hold back, respect the bowler and respect the conditions. If you’re set here, you should really make it count,” he said.With his team aiming to win their first series in England since 2007, Rahane stressed on the need to have better communication.“You have to communicate well. In this weather, in these conditions, communication will be very crucial. If someone is really set, batting on 70 or 80, they will have to hold back if the weather changes.“They will have to respect the conditions and bowlers. From both teams, bowlers are going to bowl well. As a batsman you should respect that. Acceptance will be the key.”The Indian vice-captain had enjoyed the tour of England in 2014, when he had scored a match-winning hundred on a green top at Lord’s and finished with 299 runs in five Tests with two other half-centuries.“We were here in 2014 and we know what it takes to play good cricket here. For us, we want to play good cricket rather than think about the result. If you think about the result you put pressure on yourself.“This time we just want to express ourselves. Guys are in good shape. Personally I enjoy those challenges of playing abroad. You know here in England the ball does a bit, in Australia there’s bounce, and again in New Zealand the ball does a bit.“My mind is in the present, one match at a time. I’m really looking forward to this series,” he said.India have a few selection calls to make with Kuldeep Yadav making a strong case during the limited-overs’ leg for inclusion in this Test.“We are not worried at all as both are really quality batsmen. It just takes one good innings to get into your rhythm. We all back them. Ultimately the coach and the captain will take the decision.“As far as I’m concerned they both are really quality batsmen and are batting really well in the nets. It just takes one innings,” Rahane said.“I’m not sure about the combination,? he said, talking about Kuldeep.“He is definitely an x-factor in our team. He bowled really well in the ODIs and T20Is. We will have to see how the wickets will be like tomorrow and day after.“We don’t have to forget R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. They’ve been doing really well for us. Ashwin especially with his batting and bowling, he’s been doing really well,” he added.Last but not the least, there has been a lot of debate about leg spinner Adil Rashid’s call-up to the England squad for this first Test. Rahane said that they fully expected his inclusion.“No not at all (surprised). He bowled well against us in the ODIs. He’s a very good bowler. Wrist spinners, we all know, they are wicket takers. When we played our practice game, it was like playing in Mumbai or Chennai.“He’s a quality spinner. We don’t want to take anyone lightly, be it Adil or Moeen Ali or any of their fast bowlers. We want to focus on our game,” Rahane signed off. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

It is in your leadership that we can again become a great democratic country,” stated one of his earlier tweets on Imran.Flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi and pacer Mohammad Amir also congratulated the former cricketer, who has demigod status in the country and is fondly called the ‘Kaptaan’.“Congrats PTI and @ImranKhanPTI on a truly historic victory! The 22 yr old struggle has finally paid off & deservedly. Pakistanis have a lot of expectations from u I really hope u lead from the front! I request all opposing parties& media to accept the result and help rebuild,” the recently-retired Afridi tweeted.“Congrats to @ImranKhanPTI i hope u guys will do the best for pakistani nation INSHALLAH,” added Amir. Left-arm pacer Wahab Riaz called Imran a model of sincerity.“That was one inspiring speech, had the honesty and sincerity of a leader who feels the people of Pakistan My daughter and the children of this generation are going to be part of #NayaPakistan. No words to describe that feeling. Congrats @ImranKhanPTI I’m praying for ur success..,” he tweeted.For all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez, Imran’s victory is the beginning of a new era for Pakistan.“Ma Shaa Allah @ImranKhanPTI U done it once again, Long Marathon Struggle against corruption, A man of Strong Believe, #GREATLEADER #IRONMAN,” he tweeted.Imran was also congratulated by some Indian cricketers, including veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.“Many congratulations to @ImranKhanPTI for becoming the Prime Minister of Pakistan! I hope you bring about peace and happiness amongst all, and work towards a bigger and brighter future! Wishing you all the best.”Also lauding his journey was former batsman Sanjay Manjrekar.“Imran is the epitome of setting the bar high and reaching it. Congratulations & good luck to my cricketing hero, Imran Khan!”

Around 9:42 a.m. PT (5:45 pm in Ghana) Hours before their fatal helicopter crash, Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were taking communion before an early-morning church service.Minutes before the crash, their pilot was trying to get special permission to fly though foggy conditions.Seconds before the crash that killed all nine people on board, the pilot told air traffic control he was trying to avoid a cloud layer. It was the last time anyone on the ground heard from him.While federal investigators try to determine what caused the crash, excerpts of air traffic control recordings help build a timeline of what happened in the flight’s final moments. The Sikorsky S-76B helicopter takes off from Orange County, California, according to the flight tracking site FlightRadar24.com.The helicopter was headed from the southern Los Angeles area to the northern Los Angeles suburbs.Bryant was supposed to coach a youth basketball team, the Lady Mambas, at their 12 p.m. game in Thousand Oaks, California. Gianna, 13, was on that team. Two other girls in the helicopter, Alyssa Altobelli and Payton Chester, were also on board. Around 9:21 a.m. PT (5:21 pm in Ghana) Around 9:24 a.m. PT (5:24 pm in Ghana)An air traffic controller says “it’s gonna be a little bit” before the pilot can continue.“OK, we’ll continue holding,” Zobayan replies.A National Transportation Safety Board member later said there was a delay because of traffic.Around 9:33 a.m. PT (5:33 pm in Ghana) Source: CNN 9:06 a.m. PT Sunday (5:06 pm in Ghana) The helicopter heads north. Air traffic control tells the pilot to “follow the 5 Freeway” and maintain SVFR conditions.The pilot confirms he heard the instructions: “Maintain special VFR at or below 2500, I-5 northbound.”Later, the Burbank air traffic controller tells the pilot to switch to Van Nuys air traffic control.The pilot contacts the Van Nuys tower: “Van Nuys, Helicopter 2EX with you for the special VFR transition. We are currently at 1400.”The controller tells the pilot: “Wind calm, visibility 2 1/2 , ceiling 1100 overcast, Van Nuys altimeters 30.16. Cleared into Van Nuys Class D northeast of Van Nuys.”At one point, the pilot requested flight following, which is radar assistance for a flight that helps the pilot avoid traffic, NTSB member Jennifer Homendy said.But air traffic control said the helicopter was too low to provide flight following assistance, Homendy said.The pilot told air traffic control he was going to climb higher to avoid a cloud layer. It was his last transmission. An air traffic controller tries to contact the pilot, but gets no response.“72EX, you’re following a 1200 code. So you’re requesting flight following?” the controller asks.“Say intentions,” the controller adds. “You’re still too low level for flight following at this time.” 9:45 a.m. PT (5:45 pm in Ghana)The helicopter falls off the radar, the NTSB said.9:47 a.m. PT (5:47 pm in Ghana)The first 911 call comes in about the crash, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.12 p.m. PT (8:00 pm in Ghana)The Lady Mambas’ basketball game is scheduled to begin at Bryant’s Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks. The helicopter starts circling over Glendale, California, close to the city of Burbank.“Helicopter 2EX, hold outside Burbank Class C airspace. I have an aircraft going around,” an air traffic controller says.“2EX, holding,” the pilot replies.Air traffic control audio indicates the pilot, Ara Zobayan, had requested SVFR clearance, or special visual flight rules clearance.SVFR clearance allows a pilot to fly in weather conditions worse than those allowed for regular visual flight rules. Sunday morning, the Los Angeles Police Department had grounded its helicopters because of low visibility from fog.Pilots sometimes request SVFR clearance mid-flight if weather conditions suddenly change. Those granted permission typically keep closer contact with air traffic control. Tags: GiannaHelicopter crashKobe Bryant
