The final solution of the bicycle tour “Podstrana walk and bike” was presented

first_imgAt the conference, the conceptual design, works and implementation of the project “Podstrana walk and bike” – construction of a coastal promenade and bike path. Promenade and bike path is located in the western part of the Municipality of Podstrana, and includes new bike paths and promenades on the coast length of 363 meters and hiking and biking trails along the left bank of Žrnovnica, 1610 meters long. The trail is equipped with information boards, smart benches and showcases with marked routes. Last week, the final conference of the project “Sea river promenade and bike path ‘Podstrana walk and bike'” was held. The value of the project is 10 million kuna, of which 85 percent, or 8,5 million kuna, is financed by the European Union through the “Urban Agglomeration Split” and “ITU mechanism”, and the remaining 15 percent is financed from the budget of the Municipality of Podstrana. Find out more about the whole project HERE Recall, the beginning of this year is the first time presented project “Sea river promenade and bike path ‘Podstrana walk and bike'”. The aim of the project is to improve and develop the cycling infrastructure within the Municipality of Podstrana, and thus within the Urban agglomeration of Split. The project encourages cycling as an alternative type of transport with zero CO2 emissions, which will contribute to the overall reduction of the negative impact on the environment. The goal is also to build new and equip bicycle paths and roads, connect several settlements within the Municipality of Podstrana and connect two local self-government units (Podstrana and Split) to increase overall coastal mobility in the Urban Agglomeration of Split.center_img Also, it is important to point out that the entire network of bike paths and bike routes through the Municipality of Podstrana is plotted in the “EuroVelo 8 – Mediterranean Route”. The EuroVelo 8 route seeks to connect the entire Mediterranean region, from Cadiz in the west to Cyprus in the east, with the aim of establishing a quality cycling route following the principles of sustainable transport and tourism.

Also, as they point out from the Municipality of Podrstan, the entire Podstrana walk and bike project will be applied in the funds for the fight against obesity, in order to enable long-term cycling from Trogir to Omis. last_img read more

Virus puts globalized economy at risk, says OECD chief economist

first_imgTopics : There are some signs that companies are already giving greater consideration to the issue, though it’s too soon to say there will be knee-jerk reactions to the virus. Last week, France’s Sanofi said its plan to create a standalone company to make key ingredients for other drugmakers will help ensure supplies of essential components and reduce reliance on Asia.Boone was briefing journalists on the OECD’s economic outlook, in which the Paris-based organization slashed its 2020 growth forecast because of the shockwaves the epidemic is sending across the globe. The deeper links between economies that have come with globalization mean that the virus impact is unprecedented.“The global economy has become substantially more interconnected, and China plays a far greater role in global output,” the OECD said in the report. “Even if the peak of the outbreak proves short-lived, with a gradual recovery in output and demand over the next few months, it will still exert a substantial drag on global growth in 2020.”The OECD is not the first to raise the point. The longer-term lessons also came up at a meeting of Group of 20 finance chiefs in February, with some officials warning of the risks of depending largely on complex supply chains in strategic and sensitive sectors.“We clearly see that we are too dependent on supply from foreign countries and China,” French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said Monday on France 2 television. “We will review all our industrial supply chains to see how we can re-localize business in most strategic areas and be sovereign and independent.” The upheaval from the coronavirus outbreak may be the final jolt that the world’s biggest companies need to reevaluate how they operate in a globalized economy, the OECD’s chief economist Laurence Boone said.The sprawling, continent-crossing supply chains of corporations have already come under pressure from trade tensions and climate concerns, and may face further stress as countries change global taxation rules. If and when the dust settles from the coronavirus, Boone said firms will likely pause to reconsider what they do.“What characterizes what we have seen over the past decade is effectively real-time management of stocks and very integrated supply chains,” Boone said Monday. “In the same way that central banks can review their monetary policy framework, I think businesses after this outbreak will likely look at how they are managing their stock, how they are organizing their production throughout the world.”last_img read more

Inconnu swimmers compete at AAA Provincials

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – Nine members of the Inconnu Swim Club were in Victoria last weekend to compete at the 2017 BC Short Course Provincial Championships.The meet hosts the best U18 swimmers in the province, and started last Thursday with the distance events. Brittany Welsh was the only swimmer to compete on the first day in the Women’s 800 Freestyle. Welsh swam extremely well, and was poised to have a successful weekend until she was derailed by a bout of food poisoning. She would come back to finish the last two days of competition, making the finals on the final day, but was noticeably suffering from fatigue.Owen Lang and Alexander McDonald competed in their last Provincials in the U11 category. McDonald had best times in four of six events after competing two weeks prior where he made qualifying times to attend the meet. Lang had a very strong meet, and was able to get best times in all but one of his events, which helped to propel him to the finals every night. On the last day, he reached the podium with a second place finish in the 50 metre Freestyle.- Advertisement -Cameron Louie and Tytan Carson competed in the Boys 12-13 age group. They both made the finals a few times with a few some ups and downs along the way.Eric Louie and Alex Hedges represented the Inconnu in the Men’s and Women’s age 14-15 categories. The pair made the finals in every event in which they competed, and both managed podium finishes on Sunday afternoon. Hedges found herself on the podium twice, with a silver in the 50 metre Freestyle followed with a bronze in the 100 metre Butterfly. Eric Louie meanwhile managed a gold medal in the 100 metre Butterfly.The Men’s and Women’s 16 & Over category included swimmers Tate Haugan and Jayden Forster. Forster was able to make the finals in both of her backstroke events. Haugan meanwhile swam on the Friday and Sunday of the meet, taking time off on Saturday to compete in a mountain bike race. Though he only competed in four events, he was able to get best times in all of them.Advertisement Altogether it was a fabulous meet for all the athletes. Coach Steve Carson said that the swimmers competed hard all weekend and for the most part were rewarded with best times, with seven club records were broken over the weekend. Tytan Carson led the way with three, besting one of his own and setting two new records. Brittany Welsh, Tate Haugan, and Alex Hedges all broke their own club records as well. “One of my favorite things about this meet was having Owen Lang and Alex McDonald being the first to compete every day,” said Carson. “Having these two young boys step up every morning before their teammates and show them how to compete hard and leave everything out there was something that I would use as inspiration to the rest of the team. Sometimes the older athletes can over analyze a race, but when you’re young most of the time you just step up and put the pedal to the metal. All of these swimmers have bright futures ahead of them.”Story submitted by Inconnu Swim Club coach Steve Carson, edited by Chris Newton.last_img read more
