first_imgThe surprises continue as we anxiously await more election results. Americans across the country stayed up all night waiting for returns from Georgia and Pennsylvania and any chance of a miracle and lo and behold, they followed through. Not one but both states flipped blue in favor of Joe Biden in the early hours of Friday. Georgia’s significant Black voter turnout not only helped flip the state but highlighted the impact movements against racial injustice have had on democracy. Pennsylvania’s moment came after more than 30,000 votes from the Philadelphia area were counted, Daily Kos reported.As a result, Philadelphia residents took to the streets to express their happiness and pride in flipping the state. Across the City of Brotherly Love on Friday morning, people danced and cheered with hope for the future of America. But there’s no need to feel any FOMO (fear of missing out) if you’re not in Philly and can’t partake in the celebrations, because Philly Twitter is having a party of its own.- Advertisement – PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - NOVEMBER 06: People celebrate Joe Biden's lead outside of the Philadelphia Convention Center as the counting of ballots continues in the state on November 06, 2020 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Texas program aims for Web-based school flu surveillance

November 18, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgEditor’s note: CIDRAP’s Promising Practices: Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Tools (www.publichealthpractices.org) online database showcases peer-reviewed practices, including useful tools to help others with their planning. This article is one of a series exploring the development of these practices. We hope that describing the process and context of these practices enhances pandemic planning.Jun 26, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – A couple of years ago, the system for reporting and evaluating influenza-like illness (ILI) outbreaks in Fort Worth, Tex., schools—a key part of Tarrant County’s disease surveillance program—didn’t exactly yield fine-grained information in real time.School districts gathered up attendance information from their schools once a week and sent it by fax, or in some cases e-mail, to Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH). At TCPH, officials analyzed the data manually. In case of outbreaks, they issued fact sheets and reports to the school districts on an as-needed basis.That somewhat creaky system began to change about 2 school years back, when TCPH developed a Web-based system that permits school nurses to submit daily reports on absenteeism and ILI directly to the health department. The same system allows TCPH to analyze the data in a more automated fashion and to provide abundant information to school nurses via the Web.Now the Tarrant County School Health Surveillance System (SHSS) program is making headway, TCPH officials say. It has been embraced by about a third of the schools in Tarrant County, and it has overcome a number of glitches. Officials say they are encouraged.Under the old system, TCPH received only weekly, school-district–wide data, making it hard to quickly pinpoint outbreaks, and if a report wasn’t submitted, data for a whole district was missing, said Dean Lampman, regional surveillance coordinator for TCPH.”So we wanted to fix all those things, and the system we’re developing is our attempt to do that. And it’s been mostly successful,” Lampman said.Quest for surveillance improvementsWithin TCPH is the Southwest Center for Advanced Public Health Practice, a program funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop exemplary public health practices that can be readily replicated by others. There are seven such centers around the country, Lampman said.In line with that program, Lampman said he was looking for ways to improve the whole spectrum of TCPH’s disease surveillance tools, including hospital data, over-the-counter drug sales, ambulance calls, emergency medical service data, and school absenteeism reports, among other things.The idea of developing an Internet-based system for school disease surveillance emerged from discussions Lampman had with Tabatha Powell, MPH, who at the time was a doctoral student in public health, and others, he said.”I thought if I could develop a system that could collect data electronically and have it flow into the ESSENCE system, we might be on to something,” he said. ESSENCE is the computer program Electronic Surveillance System for the Early Notification of Community-based Epidemics, which is widely used in public health to look for statistical anomalies in disease data, he explained.Electronic reporting and automated analysis were two of the key objectives, said Lampman. Two others were to gather reports more than once a week and obtain them from individual schools, not just whole districts.Speaking of the novel H1N1 virus, he said, “Let’s say this was a deadly pandemic like we had in 1918—if we collected weekly, we wouldn’t be happy with that. So we asked for daily collection.”More generally, the program was designed to ease information exchange between TCPH and county schools, support early detection of ILI, focus public health resources in response, and give school nurses one-stop access to information to help them promote disease prevention, according to a report Lampman and colleagues wrote after the program’s first year.Dual development tasksDeveloping the system involved the dual tasks of laying the groundwork with school nurses and building the electronic tools.TCPH held half a dozen meetings with nurses from the county’s approximately 300 public schools to enlist their support and gather suggestions on how the system would work, Lampman said.Getting their support “wasn’t as easy as we might’ve hoped,” he said. “However, we didn’t get into this with any misconceptions that it was going to be easy. Even with the old program we had less than 100% compliance.”None of the nurses thought the SHSS was a bad idea, but some were concerned about how much time it might take, Lampman said. In the end, “We decided there was enough of a green light to go ahead.”On the electronic side, the system was built on an open-source platform called Dot Net Nuke. The heart of the tool is a daily report form that nurses see after they log in. There, nurses are asked to report total absences, absences due to ILI, the number of students seen by the nurse, and how many of those students had an ILI.In addition, nurses are asked to report whether the number of students with ILI seems to be increasing, decreasing, or static. Additional fields ask for information on faculty absences, including those related to ILI.Other pages on the Web portal provide maps of changing disease patterns, access to flu prevention resources, news items, analysis, and action items suggested by TCPH, according to Lampman’s report.With the use of open-source software, the SHSS wasn’t very expensive to launch and was supported by TCPH’s Advanced Practice Center funds, he said. Later, TCPH applied and received flu surveillance money from the Texas Department of State Health Services.Slow-motion launchTCPH launched the system in the fall of 2007. It quickly became clear that broad participation wasn’t going to be achieved overnight.”We rolled it out to everybody all at once, sent all the instructions—and then found that almost nobody started reporting immediately,” Lampman said.Eventually, TCPH officials met with the nurses to promote the program further and get their feedback, Lampman said. “It took the epidemiologist to engage with the school nurse and the lead nurse and have a face-to-face meeting, and then it came around,” he said.Part of the problem was that at the start of the school year, nurses are focusing on dealing with children’s vaccination records, said Diana Cervantes, a TCPH epidemiologist. “I think at the beginning of the year the reporting is lower because that’s their emphasis,” she said.Lampman’s official report says more than 200 school nurses in 7 of the county’s 16 school districts were trained to use the system and the online report form, which they could complete in less than 5 minutes. However, the initial data harvest varied in quality and was hard to assess because only about 60% of the nurses in the seven districts actually reported.A chart of system statistics shows that participation grew over the past 2 school years and peaked late in the flu season each year. The peak for the 2008-09 year came the first week in March, with 104 schools from nine districts reporting. (The chart covered records only through April.) The previous year, the peak came in mid-February, with 84 schools from four districts reporting.H1N1 experienceWhen the novel H1N1 virus emerged in April and May, officials saw increased reporting, Lampman reported. He said the epidemic seemed to improve the quality of the reporting, as several nurses took time to call or e-mail corrections to some of their data.When H1N1 cases broke out in Fort Worth children, the school district there closed at the recommendation of TCPH. The health department advised another district to shut down, but instead the district closed just the one school where a case was found, Lampman said.Those closure recommendations were not driven specifically by the SHSS, said Cervantes. They were shaped more by traditional “shoe-leather epidemiology,” the gathering and testing of specimens from local clinics and hospitals, she said. “The School Health Surveillance System is still kind of in its infancy; it wasn’t something that we really used when H1N1 hit to really detect any increase in absenteeism,” she added.One of the key remaining challenges for making the SHSS fully useful is to determine baseline levels of ILI in the schools, Cervantes said. “We still need to work to establish a baseline so we know when there’s an increase in ILIs or other illnesses. At this point it’s difficult to say if a certain level of ILI or illness is unusual.”Another challenge is to persuade school nurses to report daily. “They were doing it as they had time, which was basically once or twice a week,” Cervantes said.She hopes that when the system becomes more mature, it will be of greater help in making school closure recommendations and other actions.”That’s our hope, that when the reporting becomes a little more consistent and we’re able to extract the data and use it more in a real-time sense, and we can establish a baseline, that in the future it’ll help us make those decisions.”But already the system has strengthened the health department’s links with school nurses and their ties with one another, she reported.”They feel it’s a good way to get information from the health department, and keep two-way communication open with us. They feel it’s more personalized; they do enjoy that. There’s a field [on the report form] where they can add comments and give us information,” which was helpful when some Streptococcus infections cropped up.”It also kind of helps build community with other nurses,” she added. “It had them speaking to other school nurses in their area. Whenever I meet with them, that’s the feedback.”Next stepsLampman said the system needs some technical enhancements. One is to make the data transfer and analysis more automated. Right now a technician has to transfer data from the system into ESSENCE, a step that Lampman hopes to eliminate with a change in the database structure.Other future plans call for developing a “full-blown guidance document” and conducting an exercise simulating a hypothetical disease outbreak. “If H1N1 didn’t sufficiently impress or engage some people, presumably a tabletop exercise will,” he said.See also:SHSS materials on CIDRAP Promising Practices sitelast_img read more

European Tourism: Trends and Perspectives

November 18, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgAt the end of November 2017, the European Tourism Commission published the report on European tourism 2017 – Trends and perspectives (Q3 / 2017).The report assessed European tourism performance for the first three quarters of 2017, the performance of the air transport and hospitality industry, key European and non-European markets, market share and economic forecast of the Eurozone, UK, US, Japan and Emerging Markets. Tourism in Europe continued to grow during the summer months of this year, and international tourist tourists are estimated to have grown by 8% in the first six months of 2017, and despite geopolitical tensions and terrorist attacks since 2015, the region continues to show resilience.According to the report, European tourism growth by 2017 exceeded previous expectations in various destinations. Recovery from the fall in 2016 is expected in destinations affected by security concerns, but travel to other destinations has remained strong and on the rise. The increase in tourism during the third quarter of this year was reflected in economic growth in Europe’s main markets, and strong tourism demand remains. Spain and Portugal continued to grow in 2017, with growth in arrivals of more than 10%. As the report points out, it is important to stress that growth has been largely generated due to tourists giving up on some well-known destinations such as Turkey and Egypt for security reasons.Thus, Spain remained an attractive destination and increased market share, but initial reports suggest that political tensions in Catalonia are starting to deter some visitors in late 2017. Throughout the story, it is important to know that Catalonia accounts for almost one-fifth of all foreign visits to Spain. However, in Spain and Portugal, the trend of faster growth of arrivals than overnight stays was emphasized due to the trend of shorter trips. The trend of increasing short trips has been generated by the increase and strengthening of the economy, so there are more and more short business trips as economic growth increases, and thus an increasing number of short tourist trips, including weekend trips.Iceland continues to have the highest growth in Europe. Arrivals in Iceland continued to grow by 29,9% in the first eight months of this year compared to the same period last year. Although this growth rate is lower than 55,7% from last year, Iceland is still the European destination with the highest growth. Although Iceland achieved strong growth last year and this year, growth is expected to slow due to limited tourist infrastructure and accommodation capacity.Numerous other countries also grew by more than 10% in 2017, such as Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro, Malta and Cyprus. Although the mentioned destinations usually have a high dependence on peak summer demand, recent experience shows that they can thrive beyond this period and reduce seasonality.Finland enjoyed strong growth from a variety of markets, with the largest increase in Chinese and Indian arrivals based on data up to August compared to the comparable period of 2016. A similar growth of tourists from China was recorded in Estonia. The UK market also saw growth of 9 per cent, as did France and Belgium. As can be seen, the terrorist attacks did not significantly affect the decline in tourism in the UK, but the question is how tourism trends will be reflected in the future due to the weakening pound, which will certainly encourage domestic travel and exit from the EU.See the full report of the European Tourism Commission here

Šibenik arranges rest areas on cycling routes with innovative benches

November 18, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgThe project “Landscaping on the cycling routes Zlarin and Brodarica – Jadrtovac – Donje Polje” is being successfully completed.The project envisages the installation of rest areas and signalization at ten locations on two bicycle paths. The space is enriched with multi-purpose benches with an integrated system for collecting rainwater and watering trees, ie ornamental shrubs (drip system) and a bicycle stand. In this way, environmental protection, nature conservation and the development of sustainable tourism are promoted, and an innovative, creative and environmentally friendly solution was developed by the company Idearium doo, they point out from the city of Šibenik.Four rest areas have been set up on the bicycle path on Zlarin, and the works on setting up benches on the rest areas on the Brodarica – Jadrtovac – Donje Polje path are nearing completion. The total value of the project is HRK 219.127,20, and the project is co-financed by the Ministry of Tourism in the amount of HRK 134.700,00 within the program for the development of public tourism infrastructure.Photo: Mok.hrAs the portal points out Mok.hr, the innovative bench was designed by Šibenik creative people gathered in the company Idearium doo – atelier, studio and design laboratory. In addition to innovative and special rest benches, trees will be planted on the benches, and on one segment of the bench, a trill is engraved, a popular game played by many generations born in the last century, so cyclists will be able to have fun while resting.For the plant that will be planted next to it, they chose Pinus pinea, a type of coniferous tree that can grow up to 25m, and interestingly Pinus seeds are edible and are collected in October and November so that visitors can eat these healthy fruits. while resting.&lt;/p&gt;<br />

Supetar has been asking for the introduction of an additional ferry line for years due to traffic jams, Jadrolinija has not responded

November 18, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgThe island of Brac is an island and the only connection between the island and the mainland is the ferry line. Accordingly, in order for tourists to be able to come to the island of Brac, they must use the ferry from Split to Supetar.I know a stupid statement, but unfortunately it’s important to point that out once again, no matter how funny it may be. However, as the number of tourist arrivals on the island of Brač grew, so did the infrastructure, so the capacity of the ferry that regularly transports guests from the mainland to the island of Brač did not increase.In the combination of poorer infrastructure and too small regular lines that connect Split and the island of Brač, big crowds have been created towards the island and Split for years. Sometimes even tourists in cars have to wait for more than three ferry arrivals to board a ferry to Split, which is frustrating to say the least and has a bad effect on tourism. However, the city of Supetar is aware of the problem, and through the Municipal Company GRAD doo, which is owned by the city of Supetar, they have been increasing the number of employees in the port and traffic wardens for years, and investing in traffic infrastructure as much as possible.However, as they care about solving the problem and the nervousness and frustration of the guests, since 2016 they have been writing to Jadrolinija to try to solve the problem together, but without the right answer and obvious will to try to alleviate the problem. So recently, they again sent a request to Jadrolinija to try to solve the problem together. “I don’t know how many times we want to inform you about the growing problem of traffic jams in the port of Supetar, caused by the impossibility of all vehicles to board the ferry to Split in adequate time. Namely, as you should know best, in recent years there has been a constant increase in the number of vehicles and passengers in the ferry port Supetar and they are “former” exclusively weekend crowds and for the whole week in the period from July 15 to August 31 and even and by mid-September.”Points out Marijana Šemanović in a statement and request to Jadrolinija, director of the Utility Company GRAD doo and adds that congestion leads to total traffic collapse, resentment and nervousness of tourists as well as negative images for the island of Brac, Supetar and the entire Croatian tourism.As their proposal, they propose the introduction of an additional sailing date for the ferry line 631 Split – Supetar in the period from 15.07 to 31.08. As well as the introduction of emergency lines as needed when crowds are created, and in the whole story due to crowds the regular line is delayed by half an hour or more which further complicates the whole situation because people are late for work and tourists on flights. Also, in Supetar, they have been appealing for years to extend the summer timetable, so that they can extend the tourist season. However, as they point out in the Jadrolinija press release, they do not listen to problems or answer inquiries, except for oral ones.How to develop tourism or extend the season if there are not enough regular ferry lines? Who would want to go back to the island of Brač more crazy and lose half a day waiting on the road just to get to the mainland (where a new crowd is waiting for him again)?All this is another proof of our spontaneous development of tourism, and Jadrolinija, as a state-owned company and a monopolist, must react. Ultimately, the introduction of an additional ferry or emergency line is cost-effective because at least one more ferry would be full. There is management and organization, just for things like this, and on the other hand I wonder how it was invested and invested in Jadrolinija when today after many years of tourism and ferry transport we are not able to optimally connect the islands to avoid such situations.On the other hand, if Jadrolinija does not want, does not know, cannot… then a concession should be announced for another carrier. This is a banal problem, and the solution is the introduction of new lines, which are, among other things, cost-effective. Put this problem on the table of any private entrepreneur and he will immediately find a solution, but obviously not the Jadrolinija Management.Again, we fall on the first and basic step, how can we develop tourism or extend the tourist season, if we can not ensure the basic – traffic accessibility. We can’t move forward like this, especially if we don’t communicate, especially Jadrolinija, which is owned by the state and so important for connecting the islands. Crazy, funny, tragic….This has nothing or at least should not have to do with politics, but exclusively with market and market development. We have to provide transportation from the island to the mainland if we want to engage in tourism. Without strategic and sustainable development there is no success.Read the full press release here: The problem of traffic jams at the entrance to the port of Supetarlast_img read more

The government has made decisions for the future four tourism projects in different locations in Istria – for Veliki Brijun, Muzil, Hidrobaza and Saccorgian

November 18, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgAt the 114th session in Pula, the government discussed future projects related to the City of Pula and the County of Istria. Apart from the current situation in Uljanik, the Government of the Republic of Croatia has decided to guarantee 300 million kuna in the next ten days, which will begin the completion of the construction of the Pula Hospital, which is certainly important for the development of tourism. .Decisions for the further development of Istrian tourism pave the way for investments of around 3 billion kunaAt a session in Pula on Thursday, the government made decisions for four future tourism projects at various locations in Istria – for Veliki Brijun, Muzil, Hidrobaza and Saccorgianu – which, after the conversion and with agreements between the local self-government and the Republic of Croatia, should become tourist locations in which, according to estimates, a total of HRK 3 billion would be invested. All four projects, ie the land and facilities on them, are in majority state ownership.Thus, the Government adopted a conclusion on expressing the intention to donate part of the Pula Military Airport to the Municipality of Ližnjan-Lisignano, a decision on the establishment of the Commission for preparation and implementation of the tourist development project Veliki Brijun and several conclusions related to construction, maintenance and reconstruction of transport infrastructure. A decision was made to conclude an agreement on determining the conditions, rights and obligations for the implementation of several projects – the former military complex “Muzil”, the site “Hidrobaza” and the bay “Saccorgiana”.Brijuni CommissionAt the Government session, the Minister of State Property Goran Marić stated a number of proposed decisions, ie conclusions, first of all, the proposed decision on the establishment of the Commission for the preparation and implementation of the Brijuni tourism development project. Among other things, he announced a proposal for decisions on the conclusion of the Agreement on determining the conditions, rights and obligations for the implementation of the Muzil, Hidrobaza and Saccorgiana projects. At the same time, Minister Marić presented proposals for decisions, ie conclusions on the donation of state real estate in Pula, Umag, Rovinj, Buje, Novigrad, and the Municipality of Pićan to these local governments.Istrian Y in full profileAfter the European Commission approved the extension of the contract with the concessionaire of the Istrian Y Bina-Istra on June 14 this year and thus gave the green light for the construction of the full profile of the motorway on the section Pazin-tunnel Učka, a precondition was created to start the investment. construction of a full profile on the section Pazin-tunnel Učka.Minister of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Oleg Butković emphasized the importance of the Istrian Y, because the main traffic connection connecting Istria with the rest of Croatia and announced the construction of another lane in each direction and one stop from the Rogovići junction to Vranje, a 28 km long section on the northeast side of the highway. The works will include, among other things, the construction of 11 viaducts, 14 underpasses, 3 overpasses and the demolition of 3 existing ones. He pointed out that about 95 percent of the work will be performed by Croatian state and local construction companies as subcontractors, and that the investment will enable an additional thousand employees during the construction period.last_img read more

Renters benefit the most from tourism?

Probably everyone’s life would be more beautiful and easier if there was no tourism, especially us landlords who do nothing and earn enormous money?We are:- inherited real estate,- of course the money to edit them, it goes in the kit,- We all have an agency like booking com that takes a minimal commission from us- and maximally fills objects,- we do not pay VAT, tourist membership fees, contributions, taxes, etc.…Our only job is to welcome guests and change the bed linen, but even that is difficult for us, so we take women to whom we pay a miserable 60 kuna per hour on the black market?Our only concern is how to avoid entering VAT because we are always somewhere on the verge of crossing the threshold of HRK 300.000,00? ”Author: Anamarija Cicarelli, Interligo – Counseling for apartment ownersRELATED NEWS:INTERVIEW ANAMARIJA CICARELLI: DO NOT REDUCE ACCOMMODATION PRICES, BUT RAISE QUALITYlast_img read more
