Inland nautical tourism is mostly developed in destinations such as Vukovar, Osijek, Sisak and Slavonski Brod. The passenger port in Vukovar is recording an increase in the number of berths and the growing interest of travel agencies. In 2019, there were 80.213 passengers on the Danube with 557 vessels, and in 2018 there were 46.511 passengers with 331 passenger vessels who mostly visit the City of Vukovar and family farms. This year, unfortunately, due to the coronavirus, only two berths of vessels with 270 passengers have been recorded, but documentation is being prepared for the expansion of the existing passenger port due to the berthing of an increasing number of vessels. The River Tourism Association at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce was established, the aim of which is to improve the development of all forms of river tourism; international river cruises, one-day river cruises and domestic and international yachting. “All three potentials of river tourism development require the necessary coordination of all stakeholders and strategically designed development plans. It is through the establishment and work of the HGK Community that the preconditions for their integrated development will be created, taking into account the balanced development and the interests of all involved stakeholders.”, Said Matoš, explaining that Croatia has a great potential for the development of river tourism through a naturally developed system of inland waterways, but despite that, river tourism was not managed in a coordinated manner, so this tourist potential is developed without clearly adopted strategic goals. And that this is really an untapped potential is shown by the data on the increase in the number of berths of river cruisers by 53 percent in 2019 compared to 2018. For the president the newly established HGK River Tourism Association in the Osijek County Chamber she was elected Božana Matoš, otherwise the director of the company Ancoris from Osijek, which deals with consulting and management of development projects in ports and piers of inland waterways. Tena Magdić from the Adriatic DMC company, which specializes in land tours, cruises, MICE travel programs and logistical support in Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Serbia and Macedonia, was chosen as her deputy. U Sisku je završena izgradnja putničkog pristaništa koji je u 2018. godini zabilježio 1,8 milijuna putnika uključujući jednodnevna krstarenja te pristajanje jednog kruzera s 178 putnika, a u 2019. godini nešto manje radi problema plovnosti, 1,3 milijuna putnika s pristajanjem dva kruzera s 368 putnika. “Forecasts of ship and passenger traffic on cruises on the Danube and Drava in Croatia point to further accelerated growth in demand, which is in line with trends in the environment. In recent years, there has been a trend of developing one-day inland river cruises. Excursion sailing is more or less developed on the Danube, the upper course of the Sava, the Kupa and the Bosut, and interest in investing in this type of tourism is growing”, Explained Matos.

Schools across Europe are reopening despite the worries of many parents and teachers that the move could accelerate the spread of Covid-19 after leaders said their countries had beaten back the virus and eased restrictions.Putin has repeatedly said that Russia has passed peak infections and the government eased most restrictions in June ahead of large World War II commemorations and a national vote on a new constitution. The government’s anti-virus information website said this week that children would not be required to wear masks in the classroom, cafeterias or during lunch breaks.But pupils will have their temperature checked on arrival, the head of the consumer watchdog Anna Popova said, adding that “no one can go to school if they are feeling even slightly unwell”. Russia surpassed the one million mark in total coronavirus cases on Tuesday as students throughout the country returned to classrooms on the first day of the new school year.Health officials reported 4,729 new confirmed infections, bringing the total to 1,000,048 — the world’s fourth-largest caseload after the United States, Brazil and India.President Vladimir Putin was expected to address some 17 million students and more than 1.5 million teachers in an online lesson on World War II. In Moscow, the epicenter of Russia’s outbreak, masks are compulsory for teachers and recommended for students.All school staff in the capital have been tested for coronavirus, the authorities have said.Putin announced last month that Russia had become the first country to register a coronavirus vaccine, but scientists and the World Health Organization said it still needed a rigorous safety review.Russia has registered 17,299 virus deaths, a low figure compared to other countries hit hard by the pandemic.Critics have cast doubt on the low official mortality rate and accused authorities of under-reporting to play down the scale of the crisis.Officials insist the low fatality count is down to a campaign of mass testing, which has identified many coronavirus cases with mild or no symptoms.

Besides the implementation of COVID-19 protocols, we also urge for the roles of P2K3 [Occupational Safety and Health Committee],” Andri said on Tuesday.Andri said it would be difficult to avoid the emergence of office transmission clusters during the PSBB if companies did not do their part.“There is no point if businesses and workers do not cooperate. Don’t blame us if we decide to tighten PSBB measures,” he said as quoted by kompas.com.He called on companies to actively report on the implementation of health protocols and encouraged workers to report companies that violated restrictions, promising them protection and anonymity. The Jakarta administration has urged businesses to cooperate during the implementation of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) as authorities raise concerns over the limited number of supervisory officials available to oversee them.Jakarta Manpower, Transmigration and Energy Agency head Andri Yansyah said the office had only 25 teams in charge of overseeing the implementation of health protocols, each team tasked with monitoring three companies a day.With the help of the Jakarta Public Order Agency (Satpol PP), the 25 teams are monitoring 79,849 small to large companies that employ up to 2.1 million people.

The new PSBB phase set to be in place for two weeks until Sept. 27.Unlike in the first PSBB phase implemented in April, the Jakarta administration has made some allowances.It also allows private companies outside the category of essential businesses and government offices to have no more than 25 percent of their employees work on-site at the same time.Workplaces in the essential sector, markets and shopping centers, as well as places of worship in areas with low transmission risks, are allowed to open at 50 percent capacity.On the first day of PSBB on Monday, Jakarta was forced to temporarily close eight companies after the employees of five of them tested positive for COVID-19, while the other three companies were found violating health protocols.Meanwhile, the city closed 134 companies during the transitional period to the new normal from June 5 to Sept. 13, either due to transmissions or for violating capacity restrictions, tempo.co reported.

That’s according to the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Africa CDC chief says the pandemic on the 54-nation continent “is picking up speed very quickly” while shortages of testing materials and medical equipment remain severe in many countries. The jump is largely due to South Africa announcing its largest daily number of new cases: 5,688.

Press Association The Ireland international booted all of his team’s points in a 21-16 victory as they came from behind at Stade Pierre Antoine to maintain their perfect start to the European rugby season. “Having the confidence in your team-mates and your squad is really important,” said Toner. “We know that when we get into their half and win a penalty, we have confidence in him to slot it over. “When you get into your opponents’ half, you’re looking to break the gain line or win a penalty – and that’s what happened today.” His sentiment was echoed by scrum-half Isaac Boss, who added: “Mads did very well. We probably gave them a few too many kickable penalties, but they probably won’t be happy they gave us a few too many kickable penalties. “When it’s on a knife-edge, three points makes all the difference. He’s playing very well and took his chances well.” Castres raced into a 7-0 lead after six minutes but Madigan ensured Leinster went into the dressing room at half-time 9-7 up. The home side then went back ahead as they opened up a 16-9 lead midway through the second half but Madigan nailed four further penalties to seal victory and Toner was delighted with the resilience in the team. “It was hard around the breakdown,” he said. “Castres are obviously a massive squad. They love trucking it up, but I think we did well to suffocate them and build pressure and get over the gain line.” He added: “We’re really confident with the squad we have. Obviously, we’ve had a lot of injuries early in the season but I don’t want to use that as an excuse. “We have a talented squad, and talented young lads coming through who are all taking their chances.” Leinster lock Devin Toner heaped praise on team-mate Ian Madigan after the centre kicked the Pro12 side to victory over Top 14 opponents Castres in the European Rugby Champions Cup. Leinster have little time to recover after their French examination as they are back in action at the RDS on Friday when they face Edinburgh in the Pro12. And Boss is glad to be getting back to domestic action after making a 100 per cent start to the European campaign in Pool Two. “We’re happy with where we are at the moment,” he said. “We’re happy to be in the position we are. “But, in professional rugby you’ve got to move quickly – especially this week.”
Arsenal face an anxious wait to find out the extent of the hamstring injury to England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. “Chamberlain has a hamstring strain, the only thing we don’t know is how bad it is because usually the scans are only done 48 hours after the accident. That will be done today [Wednesday],” Wenger said in an interview with the club’s official website, www.arsenal.com. Wenger added midfielder Jack Wilshere was “progressing well” following minor surgery to removes studs from pins in his ankle, and Mathieu Flamini had resumed full training after a hamstring problem, so comes into contention for Saturday. There was also positive news on centre-back Gabriel Paulista, who limped off against QPR with a hamstring strain but is expected back training “on Sunday or Monday”. Wenger believes the victory at Old Trafford, secured by a goal from former United striker Danny Welbeck, can have a positive impact for the remainder of the campaign. The Gunners boss, though, accepts recent performances have drained his squad physically, and so will have some decisions to make as he looks to keep the players fresh for both the West Ham match and the second leg of their Champions League tie at Monaco, where Arsenal will be out to overturn a 3-1 deficit. Theo Walcott could come back into contention, having again been left on the bench at United. “We were at a high level of fatigue because we played against Monaco, Everton, QPR, Manchester United, all very physical games,” said Wenger. “I will have to test medically, physically, how the players are on Friday, and I will make my decision then. The big priority is of course West Ham.” German forward Lukas Podolski, meanwhile, has indicated his intention to return to Arsenal in the summer, having failed to make an impression on a loan spell at Inter Milan. Speaking to Sport Bild, the World Cup winner said: “The chapter is not closed with Arsenal, because there is no purchase option. “I was the first person to clear things up in the talks with Inter and say I didn’t want any kind of clause that would have let them purchase my contract rights. “When you’re on loan you never know what can happen, so at the end of the season we’ll analyse things freely and decide the situation.” Podolski was left out of Inter’s squad for the Europa League and has seen his performance levels criticised by Nerazzurri coach Roberto Mancini. The 29-year-old added: “At Inter there have been some negative situations, but I see the bright side in all of it. “Also, it’s generally easier to criticise someone who comes on loan, as I did this winter.” Arsenal are set to join Everton, Stoke and a Singapore Select XI team for the Barclays Asia Trophy Singapore in July 2015, which will see the Gunners return to the country for the first time since 1991 as part of their pre-season campaign. Wenger said: “It will be a typical English Premier League competition in Asia and we know that English football is very popular in Asia, and that’s a good opportunity to show how much we respect Asia as well. “[Strong competition] is what you’re looking for, to prepare well with the right intensity in the games to have a look at everybody as well. We have young promising players who can be a name after the competition. It’s a good opportunity as well for Singapore people to see these players.” Press Association The 21-year-old, who had just returned to the side following a groin problem, was substituted during the second half of Monday night’s FA Cup quarter-final win at Manchester United, where he had earlier set up Nacho Monreal’s opening goal. Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed the midfielder was set for a scan but the prognosis would not be determined until later in the week, although it is now unlikely Oxlade-Chamberlain will feature in Saturday’s Barclays Premier League game against West Ham.
