Sisak-Moslavina County Tourist Board presented its tourist uniforms

first_imgPhoto: 2sisters With the aim of promoting the tourist offer at fairs, special presentations, TZSMŽ has published a public call for the design and production of unique tourist uniforms. The local company Natura Ivana jdoo from Sisak, which made two men’s and five women’s uniforms, applied for the tender. All embroidery on the uniforms is newly made and handmade, modeled on the folk costumes of our region, says Ivana Tomašinec Damjanović from the company from the company Natura Ivana jdoo, which is run by the sister Sanja Tomašević brand 2sisters. “Motifs from our region, from Posavina, Moslavina and Banovina, were used. It is about manual and unique work. Handmade on blouses, stitching on white canvas, was done by Marica Šalić from Gornja Posavina, and the executed rose, which is represented as a symbol of the county, was done by Mrs. Kata Šešerin. We wanted to complete the whole through the presentation of the symbols of the whole county, so in addition to roses, blue and green are represented, the colors of the county. We also wanted to empower our women who preserve and nurture our heritage and ultimately show our culture and heritage. ” says Ivana Tomašinec Damjanović The Sisak-Moslavina County Tourist Board presented its unique tourist uniforms. A great example of how small tourist boards can work well, be different and fight for their place under the sun. It is easiest to say that the status quo cannot be adhered to. In this context, I would like to remind you of the excellent action of the Rogoznica Tourist Board (although a sea destination, with a much larger budget than continental tourist boards, but again “small” in the context of large sea destinations) Visitor center or a mobile tourist office. Sanja Tomašinec, designer and engineer of textile technology, who is also responsible for the entire design, points out that this was a unique opportunity to implement a rose on the official uniform as a symbol of the county, which is otherwise less used. “Everything was done according to our traditional clothes that were worn before, and the goal was to process the entire area of ​​the county through one set of clothes. So we got modern uniforms with traditional elements. ” concludes Sanja Tomašinec. The uniforms will have their premiere at the Place2go Fair in Zagreb on March 15-17 this year, and they will also be present at all performances of the SMŽ Tourist Board – at fairs in Slovenia, Germany, Italy and Warsaw. TZSMŽ financed the project in the amount of HRK 30.000,00 gross for the design and manufacture of 7 sets of uniforms.center_img Now the next step would be to design a different promotional stand, to round out the whole process. I keep emphasizing that at trade shows, especially if you are “small” in the context of a smaller budget, you have to be innovative, creative and different in order to draw attention to yourself. If we look at a fair space, it is always the same, with classic white “boxes”, and if someone jumps out with a different approach, it immediately stands out from the others and thus attracts attention and arouses interest. Of course, the first step is to attract attention and interest, and then quality communication and sales come on the scene, ie the promotion of the destination in order to create action, ie the desire to come to the destination. Photo: 2sisters The Sisak-Moslavina County Tourist Board is delighted with the design of the uniforms, especially since it is about domestic production and handicrafts. “There was a need for unique uniforms because this year we are working on increased promotion of our destination abroad (Poland, Italy, Slovenia and Germany), so for practical reasons, to attract attention, we came up with the idea to attract attention with something pleasing to the eye. In the whole story, just different uniforms come to the fore. We still have a lot of ideas, and our next step is to make a different promotional stand. The worst solution is classic spaces with a white background and posters, but in line with the modest income, I hope that we will be able to make a design of a different promotional counter. By the way, last year we broke the magic number of 100.000 overnight stays, which we are very proud of. “Concludes Ingrid Padjen Đurić, director of the Sisak-Moslavina County Tourist Board. Of course, the first step is to attract attention and interest, and then quality communication and sales come on the scene, ie the promotion of the destination in order to create action, ie the desire to come to the destination. The uniforms are visually attractive and differentiate the presentation from other destinationslast_img read more

Independence Historical Trust was approved for a $8 million grant for the significant renovations and repairs necessary to help bring the First Bank of the United States up to code to reopen for the public.“The First Bank restoration project won’t just restore an esteemed historic building. It will help to restore Philadelphia’s rightful place in the remarkable Alexander Hamilton story that has captured the nation’s curiosity and will aid our quest in supporting Independence National Historical Park as an essential place to visit to understand how our nation was born and flourished,” said Bill Marrazzo, Chairman of Independence Historical Trust. “We are so grateful that Governor Wolf saw the power of this project and awarded this grant.”Supported through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), funding will support critical expansion projects, some of which will provide opportunities for additional economic development.

FA Cup: Mourinho admits ‘best team lost’ as Son sends Spurs into fifth round

first_imgJose Mourinho admitted Tottenham got lucky after Son Heung-min’s late penalty secured a dramatic 3-2 win against Southampton in Wednesday’s FA Cup fourth-round replay.Advertisement Read Also: Mourinho comically goes from smiling to fuming in a split secondBut Lucas came to Tottenham’s rescue in the 78th minute when he took Dele Alli’s pass and cleverly turned into the space on the edge of the area before drilling a superb strike into the far corner.The momentum had swung in Tottenham’s favour and Son won it in the 88th minute when he charged into the area and went down under minimal contact from goalkeeper Angus Gunn.Son stepped up to take the penalty himself and fired home to send Tottenham into the last 16.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Shane Long and Danny Ings scored as Southampton hit back to take the lead at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.But Lucas Moura equalised before Son won and converted the decisive penalty with just two minutes left.“I have to be honest and say I think the best team lost on the pitch but my team were the ones with more heart and went to their limit,” Mourinho said.“We suffered but we deserved to win because we were in our limits. Southampton were fresher than us but we played with our souls and heart and gave absolutely everything.”Tottenham, who last won the FA Cup in 1991, will host struggling Norwich in the fifth round in the first week of March.Aiming for the first trophy of his reign, Mourinho, who replaced Mauricio Pochettino earlier this season, will be relieved Tottenham avoided a surprise exit from a competition he has not won since 2007 with Chelsea.Taking credit for the win in classic Mourinho self-promoting style, he said: “I think I did very well because I had to manage a team with so many difficulties.“The priority is to survive. We have lots of difficulties. I’m not speaking just about Harry Kane, I’m speaking about injuries to Giovani lo Celso and Erik Lamela.“Today was a team completely unbalanced, really hard to organise it.”Tottenham are without a major trophy of any kind since the 2008 League Cup and Mourinho would dearly love to end that drought, but his team will have to improve significantly on this erratic display.

Mourinho will also have to get Jan Vertonghen back onside after the defender’s dejected trudge off the pitch following his substitution.“I understand his sadness, it is normal. He is always respectful and always professional. It doesn’t make me happy to make a substitution. I did it for the team, Jan is happy for the team,” Mourinho said.Tottenham had won eight of their last nine home games against Southampton, including a 2-1 success in the Premier League earlier this season, and they were in front after 12 minutes.– Momentum swing –Ryan Sessegnon’s burst opened up the Southampton defence and when the ball bounced to Tanguy Ndombele on the edge of the area, the midfielder drilled a powerful shot that took a big deflection off Stephens into his own net.Ings should have equalised when he ran onto James Ward-Prowse’s pin-point pass and got to the ball ahead of the hesitant Hugo Lloris, but the in-form striker’s shot cannoned back off the bar.Southampton’s 34th-minute equaliser carried more than a whiff of blame for Lloris, who limply parried out Nathan Redmond’s shot for Long to slot home.There was a blow for the visitors before half-time when Ward-Prowse was stretchered off after needing oxygen for a knee injury suffered in a challenge with Sessegnon.Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side deservedly took the lead in the 72nd minute.Redmond made an incisive surge from deep inside his own half and slipped a pass to Ings, who cut past Japhet Tanganga before curling a fine finish into the far corner from 18 yards for his 17th goal of the season.last_img read more

Leinster claim late Connacht win

first_img After Parks converted from close range, a promising Leinster attack was foiled by a Luke Fitzgerald knock-on and there was some concern for a prone Madigan, who was hit hard by Robbie Henshaw, before he got back on his feet. Slashing runs from Mata Fifita and McFadden saw both sides attack with vigour in an open, exciting encounter, the hosts picking up the pace noticeably as Madigan landed his second penalty following a Henshaw offside. Leinster pressed for more approaching the interval and while Connacht defended heroically, they did leak a late penalty – Craig Clarke was pinged for not rolling away and Madigan mopped up with an important three points. Clarke, Heenan and Brett Wilkinson were all having big shifts for Connacht, who signalled their intent on the restart when turning down a kickable penalty. Lam’s charges worked a lineout maul and Wilkinson went close before Kevin McLaughlin infringed near the whitewash, but Parks’ poor penalty attempt came back off an upright and Leinster had a real let-off. Madigan was just short with his own penalty attempt from halfway, and with man-of-the-match George Naoupu getting on the ball Connacht doggedly held onto their slim advantage. Although handling errors from Gavin Duffy and Matt Healy invited Leinster forward, Connacht somehow survived a spell of scrum pressure near their line. The proceedings were decidedly stop-start entering the final quarter as a succession of penalties broke up play. Leinster’s hopes were boosted when replacement prop Loughney was sin-binned with 10 minutes left. Leinster shunned a shot at the posts as they looked for their set piece to decide the game. Marmion duly saw yellow for interfering with Isaac Boss at the base of a scrum and a couple of collapses led to the vital penalty try which Madigan converted. Connacht were just three minutes away from a famous interprovincial derby victory at the RDS, but Leinster pulled it out of the fire with a late penalty try to claim a 16-13 win. Press Association The westerners – winless in Dublin since September 2002 – went 10 points up with scrum half Marmion poaching a 13th-minute try and Dan Parks kicking the rest of the points. Ian Madigan’s third successful penalty closed the gap to four points right on half-time, but Leinster had to bide their time against an aggressive Connacht defence. The scoreline remained at 13-9 until the dying minutes when Connacht’s penalty count took its toll – 18 in all – and Leinster’s forward power, aided by replacement Martin Moore, edged it for them. There were only two minutes on the clock when Parks drilled over a right-sided penalty from inside the 10-metre line. Connacht’s solid start continued as they tackled tigerishly to chop down both Fergus McFadden and David Kearney, and Parks drove home a penalty from halfway for 6-0. The returning Madigan punished a scrum infringement from Jake Heenan to get Leinster on the scoreboard, splitting the posts with a confident strike from the right. Connacht failed to take advantage of a five-metre scrum after a Madigan kick was charged down by Craig Ronaldson, but Leinster then blundered on their own scrum ball to gift Marmion the opening try. The alert Connacht scrum half reached out to score after the visitors got the push on in the set piece, with Jamie Heaslip and Eoin Reddan both unable to control the loose ball and Noel Reid beaten to it on the line by Marmion. Pat Lam’s side shot into an early 13-3 lead and produced an heroic backs-to-the-wall effort in trying to contain the reigning RaboDirect Pro12 champions. But having lost Ronan Loughney (70 minutes) and Kieran Marmion (76) to the sin-bin, Connacht’s wilting scrum was unable to keep Leinster at bay and Matt O’Connor’s men escaped with a fortunate win. last_img read more
