Owners Danijel and Tjitske Đekić were once again honored as the only Istrian bar with 17 points and 3 chef’s caps (“greatest creativity and quality, best food preparation”). Deniz Zembo, whose restaurant of the Hotel Amphitheater was awarded 16 points (2 chef’s caps), as well as the restaurant Marina from Novigrad and Wine Vault of Maistra’s hotel Monte Mulini from Rovinj, was named the new year. Maistra can also boast kitchen director Andy Gaskin with one cap each for the Adriatic Hotel Brasserie and the Mediterraneo Restaurant (Monte Mulini).When the Tourist Board of the Istrian County and its PR agency ART RedaktionsTeam managed to include Istrian restaurants in the Gault Millau Austria guide as a special part in 2003, it was still a small sensation, points out ART director Dr. Wolfgang Neuhuber and added: “This was preceded by three years of convincing the Gault Millau administration of the new gastronomic qualities of Istria. The gourmet scene in Croatia at that time was still in its infancy and it is impossible to compare it with today’s times. But then everything started, the first anonymous tasters headed for Istria and since then that Adriatic peninsula has been a permanent part of the Austrian Gault Milau ” Neuhuber pointed out.Top gastronomy is of crucial importance for guests from the German-speaking area, and for our restaurants and taverns, these international ratings are invaluable, said the director of the Istrian Tourist Board Denis Ivošević. “All the more so as guests from Austria and Germany greatly appreciate the high level that our gastronomy has achieved in the meantime as well as because they come several times a year. Gourmets visit our restaurants and taverns in large numbers in the pre-season and post-season, they are ready to set aside the appropriate amount of money for good quality, and their hotels are full until November.”Said Ivošević and emphasized that the great value for the image that is achieved by being present in international guides for restaurants must not be neglected.It is with this goal that Ivošević and Neuhuber personally visited the Michelin guide in Paris three years ago, which has included successful Istrian and Croatian restaurants in its global test program since 2017 with the support of the Croatian Ministry of Tourism. The results are known and concrete, and so it is Restaurant MICHELIN’S star was officially awarded, in Istria got its Michelin guide.Istria’s tourist success is not accidental, success happens to those who fight, who challenge it, who take risks and take action, while others stagnate and whine that it is impossible.Teran Re 2008 from Roxanich winery is “Croatian wine of the year”At the initiative of the ART RedaktionsTeam, Gault Millau included fourteen wineries from Croatia for the first time in his wine guide for 2018, six of them Istrian. In addition, Teran Re 2008 from the Roxanich winery in Istria was named “Croatian Wine of the Year”.Gault Millau tasters awarded at least one chef’s cap for 24 restaurants in Istria and 9 restaurants in Kvarner.Restaurant overview with at least one Gault Millau chef’s capcenter_img <br />

Why He Hasn’t Proposed (Yet)

first_img Sharing is caring! Tweet Share Share Think every man who doesn’t propose is afraid to commit? Don’t be so sure. Read on for eight very real reasons even a man in love might not pop the question.1. His Parents’ Marriage Didn’t Make ItOur parents’ relationship offers us our first glimpse of the pros and cons of marriage, so if his mom and dad communicated best through lawyers, saying “I do” might be a huge don’t. “I know a few guys who remember their parents’ relationship as being full of poison, and the idea of marriage brings up the pain they felt when their parents divorced,” says Steve, 31, of Boston. “So instead of proposing to the women they loved, they broke things off when it got to that point in their relationships.”2. He’s Focused on His CareerMany men place the same emphasis on their career as some women do on their relationship status, which means that unless he’s made a name for himself at the office, he likely won’t be asking you to take his. Lisa Daily, author of How to Date Like a Grown-Up, says, “Most men want to have all their ducks in a row before proposing—they want to feel secure about their career prospects and financial situation before taking on a wife.”3. He’s Afraid of BoredomJust as you want to enjoy the excitement of something new and mysterious, so do men. “A lot of guys realize they are going to live to be 80, which means they will have to deal with the same person for 50 to 55 years,” says Dave, 32, of Chicago. “And unless there’s an effort to keep things exciting, that can get monotonous.”4. He’s Turned Off by Weddings“A lot of men think the whole wedding industry makes a mockery of marriage, and they get really turned off by how obsessed women get with it,” says Harold, 34, from Chicago. “It’s really unattractive when a woman you love freaks out about napkins, and it makes a lot of men wonder why women are so into getting married. Is it the diamond and the party or him?”5. He’s Not Ready to Be a DadMark, 33, from Sacramento, California, says his uncertainty about wanting kids at all is keeping him from popping the question. “I don’t know if I want to have children, and I don’t want to make a life-long commitment until I know where I stand,” he says.6. He’s Not Done Sowing His Wild OatsYou might be The One, but some guys have a hard time letting go of the possibility of being with other women. “The most common thing I hear around marriage from men is, ‘If I get married, this will be the last woman I ever sleep with,’” says Daily.7. He’s Afraid He’ll Have to Give Up His Dreams“The thing that stands out for me is the fear of settling down and forgoing my dreams,” says Eric, 27, of Ann Arbor, Michigan. “I saw my guy friends get married, immediately buy a house, have kids and eventually let go of their dreams. I feel that I still want to pursue my career goals, have adventures and be able to make last-minute decisions without informing someone. I’ll propose when I get that out of my system…or meet a girl willing to work with me on that.”8. He Can’t Afford the Ring“My girlfriend wants at least a one-carat ring. I’m starting to find out that my new career paths are not likely to make me a great deal of money, and that aggravates my worries that she will not want to stick around for life,” says Frank*, 32, of Los Angeles.*Name has been changed9. He’s Afraid Marriage Will Change You“A lot of guys hear that a woman will change once she gets married and that the happiness and mystery you enjoyed in the marriage goes away when the honeymoon is over,” says Steve, 33, of Charlotte, North Carolina. “When you think about that and combine it with the idea that you no longer have an easy out if it goes sour, it can be a deterrent.”By Brenda Della Casa,Glamour magazinecenter_img Share 39 Views   no discussions LifestyleRelationships Why He Hasn’t Proposed (Yet) by: – September 13, 2011last_img read more

Darren Bravo and Gayle on Test radar, but others ‘not interested’

first_imgJASON Holder has played down the prospect of “big name” West Indies players re-joining the Test team, stating “we have the best of the lot right now.”With Cricket West Indies having recently relaxed their selection criteria and offered an amnesty to those players who have chosen to play in T20 leagues, it had been presumed the likes of Sunil Narine, Darren Bravo, Chris Gayle and Kieron Pollard (who has never played Test cricket) might come into consideration ahead of series against Zimbabwe and New Zealand.But Holder, West Indies’ captain, suggested that, apart from Bravo and perhaps Gayle, he “didn’t think there’s anybody interested in playing Test cricket that we can call upon.”“Darren Bravo is a guy who has done well for us in the recent past,” Holder said. “But apart from Darren I don’t think there’s anybody else who’s interested in playing Test cricket that we can really call upon or the so-called big names people are looking for.“Chris has probably hinted that he would like to play if he’s fit enough. He’s always said he would like to play. I spoke to him a while back. We would love to have a guy like Chris in our side. He brings a lot.“But apart from those two players I don’t think there’s anybody else we can really look to.”While Bravo’s return would appear close to automatic – Kyle Hope failed to take his chance in England, averaging just 6.83 batting at No. 3 in the series –Holder described himself as “extremely proud” of the performance of his young team and hinted that he would be reluctant to see too many of them replaced. Shane Dowrich, who averaged 4.80 and struggled with the gloves, might also come under pressure from the likes of Denesh Ramdin.“I think we’ve got the best of the lot [playing] right now,” he said. “I’m really, really happy with this squad to be honest. I enjoy playing cricket with this squad and I enjoy leading this squad. I wouldn’t trade this squad for the world.”Speaking after being beaten in the deciding Test against England at Lord’s, Holder was encouraged with the way his side had pushed for what would have been a shock series victory.“I’m extremely proud, can’t really fault the guys for effort,” he said. “We’ve still got a lot of room for improvement, still got a long way to go before we can get consistent performances. That said, not a bad tour of England, could have been better, obviously, but I’m still very proud.“The credit must go to the bowlers. After the Headingley Test match we asked for another big effort. The way we came out here first innings and bowled, I think at the start of the match if you said we’d have got England for 190, we’d have taken that.”While the bowling was consistently challenging after the aberration of Edgbaston, West Indies’ win at Headingley in the second Test – their first in England for 17 years – was built on the batting performances of Shai Hope, who scored hundreds in each innings, and Kraigg Brathwaite.Holder said he wanted the team to build on what they had started in their next two tours, in Zimbabwe next month and then New Zealand.“For a first tour here for many of us, I still think it’s a hell of an achievement and fight we put up,” Holder said. “Hopefully we can learn from this, we have New Zealand at the end of the year which could be similar conditions and similar type of bowlers, so it should be good chance to take what we’ve learned here into that series. But first we’ve got Zimbabwe, in a few weeks time, so hopefully we can really kick on from there.“Obviously Shai was outstanding in this entire series and we must not forget Kraigg’s contribution as well, he really did a hell of a job, especially at Headingley.Unfortunately we didn’t get more batsmen to carry on, lots of us got starts but didn’t carry on, and we let ourselves down with our fielding, probably this entire series. We dropped quite a few chances and gave good players two opportunities to bat, and in international cricket they’ll make you pay for it.“I think we’ve shown improvement. When we sit down and critique each series, we just try to look for improvement. We’ve definitely shown that, especially in our bowling, improving our consistency there … But hopefully guys can gain a lot of confidence form this series against a world-class side and top-class bowling unit. To be able to achieve something in this series speaks a lot.” (ESPN Cricinfo)last_img read more

Eagles Beat Tunisia to Claim Consolation Bronze for Record Eighth Time

first_imgSuper Eagles players and officials celebrating Nigeria’s eighth AFCON bronze medal shortly after defeating Tunisia 1-0 to claim the silverware in Cairo, Egypt The Nigerian forward scored against Burundi in the opening match before his brace against Cameroon in the Last 16 stage. He also scored in the semi final clash with Algeria before capping his outing with the winner against Tunisia last night.The former Watford striker yesterday tapped in after Tunisia keeper Moez Ben Cherifia deflected the ball off his own defender Yassine Meriah just three minutes into the losers final.Nigeria’s coach, Gernot Rohr made two changes to his starting line up, preferring Francis Uzoho to Daniel Akpeyi while also swapping Chidozie Awazie for Ola Aina.In a slow-paced game between the two losing semi-finalists inside the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo, Tunisia went close as Ferjani Sassi and Ghaylene Chaalali shot wide.Three-time winners Nigeria have now finished third eight times. It was like that in Ethiopia in 1976 (against Guinea), Ghana in 1978 (against Tunisia), Senegal in 1992 (against Cameroon), Mali in 2002 (against Mali), Tunisia in 2004 (against Mali), Egypt in 2006 (against Senegal) and Angola in 2010 (against Algeria).Tunisia, champions in 2004, needed a finger-tip save from Cherifia to deny Samuel Chukwueze in the second half and the keeper was called on again injury time to acrobatically save Samuel Kalu’s free-kick.Ighalo however lipped off the pitch with hamstring with Victor Osimhen coming on board late into the game.Senegal will look for their first AFCON title when they face 1990 winners face Algeria in Friday’s final.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Odion Ighalo scored the only goal last night as Nigeria beat Tunisia 1-0 in the third-place play-off at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to claim the bronze medals of this edition in Cairo, Egypt.The third place finish was a consolation for the three times champions who missed the last two editions of the African football showpiece back-to-back in 2015 and 2017.The goal is Ighalo’s fifth that makes him the tournament’s leading scorer on five goals.last_img read more

Sir Alan Budd to provide key note interview at ICE London

first_img Submit Cross-party think-tank calls for £100 monthly limit on gambling August 5, 2020 Share ICE London has secured a notable coup with confirmation that prominent British Economist, Sir Alan Budd will provide the key note ahead of the ICE Annual Regulators Luncheon.  Sir Alan, who was a founding member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee as well as a former senior economic adviser to HM Treasury and whose Gambling Review Report (2001) provided the foundation for current British gambling legislation, will provide his unparalleled insight and analysis in a live interview with Dan Waugh of international strategic gambling consultancy, Regulus Partners. Waugh, who spent nine years as Group Strategy Director at The Rank Group and advises clients on the development of responsible gambling programmes, believes the recommendations made in the Budd Report remain highly relevant.  He emphasised: “Given that the report will be 17 years old in July – and that the British gambling industry has changed so significantly in that time, it is remarkable how fresh and relevant the report feels today even though it was published at a time when internet gambling was in its infancy and the smartphone was just a glint in the eye of Steve Jobs. “Critically, the report was focused on how legislation might best serve the interests of the consumer – both in terms of promoting choice and enjoyment and in terms of harm prevention. This contrasts with traditional approaches of seeking to balance fiscal benefits against harm. Also valuable was the Budd Report’s repeated recommendation that reviews be conducted – both on a periodic basis and in response to specific events – in order to ensure that legislation remained relevant to intended outcomes. Sadly, this recommendation was largely ignored – which may explain why issues of gambling regulation are now so vexed just a decade after the full implementation of the Gambling Act.”Dan Waugh believes the Gambling Review Report contains lessons for other jurisdictions many of whose gaming officials and regulators will be represented at ICE London.  He stated: “The overall approach offers a model for both international jurisdictions as well as for Great Britain. I think the lessons are, be clear about policy objectives; take time to consider what regulation and legislation will best deliver aims; focus primary legislation on principles, permit the regulator and/or Government to adapt the details in an agile fashion, ensure that the Government and regulator can draw on an independent and scientifically robust evidence base for re-calibrating regulation and build-in review mechanisms to identify and tackle issues early.”Kate Chambers, Managing Director of Clarion Gaming added: “We are delighted to be able to confirm Sir Alan Budd’s attendance at the world’s most influential gaming exhibition.  As well as making a major contribution to the review of gambling legislation Sir Alan has advised chancellors, held academic roles in Britain and the United States, served as a founder member of the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee and as a senior economic adviser to the Treasury.  “His participation at the Regulators Luncheon will be one of the many highlights of what is promising to be another key gathering of all sections of the international gaming business community.” Covid concerns see Clarion Gaming move ICE 2021 to April    July 15, 2020 Related Articles HBLB ups prize money commitment by 50% July 31, 2020 StumbleUpon Sharelast_img read more
