An initiative has been launched to hold Tourism Days in Slavonia next year!

first_imgThe Days of Croatian Tourism will be held in October this year in Mali Lošinj, organized by the Ministry of Tourism, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce and the Croatian Tourist Board.At the traditional meeting of tourism workers, which brings together more than a thousand participants, this year will be held the awarding of tourism prizes to individuals, representatives of the tourism industry and the best destinations. “Days of Croatian tourism have been held in various Croatian destinations for many years, so in the past few years the largest Croatian tourist gathering hosted Bol on the islands of Brač, Poreč, Opatija, Zadar, Dubrovnik, Šibenik and Rovinj. In the spirit of continuing to hold the Days of Croatian Tourism every year in another destination, but also to continue to encourage tourism on Croatian islands, this year the Days of Croatian Tourism will be held on the island of Losinj – the town of Mali Losinj. “Points out the Minister of Tourism Cappelli.Days of Croatian tourism since 2008 have been held in the following destinations: Opatija, Bol, Rovinj, Šibenik, Dubrovnik, Zadar, Opatija, Poreč, Bol and this year in Mali Lošinj. Interestingly, in Bol and Opatija even twice.Initiative to hold the 12th Days of Croatian Tourism in 2018 in Slavonia #DariTurizmaSlavonija2018Until today, the Days of Tourism have been held exclusively in coastal Croatia. I wonder why they never took place in continental Croatia or Slavonia? For example, in Osijek, Požega, Vinkovci or Vukovar? Purely declarative as some support for continental tourism.That is why I hereby launch an initiative to hold Tourism Days 2018 in Slavonia. Currently, there is a wider support of the tourism profession for the Day of Tourism in Slavonia, but before that I was interested in the opinion of the Minister of Tourism on the Day of Tourism in Slavonia, who emphasizes the idea, and how the development of continental tourism is one of his main goals. “The development of the Croatian continent is one of the priorities of the Government of the Republic of Croatia, and the development of continental tourism is one of my main goals in the mandate. For this reason, I support your initiative to hold the Days of Croatian Tourism in the future in one of the continental destinations, which would certainly further stimulate the continent and valuable stakeholders in tourism in the Croatian continent. When choosing a destination, one should take into account the accommodation possibilities and the size of the available halls for such a large gathering, which gathers over 1000 participants every year.. ”Points out Minister Cappelli.Certainly, there is no hotel in Slavonia that can accommodate about 1.000 participants at a time, but every problem has a solution. As the “campaign” will last throughout the year, I will soon propose my proposals for solving this problem, as well as some other ideas and loud thoughts of other tourism workers. Two heads are always smarter than one, and I hereby invite you to propose your ideas as well as your vision of how to best use the situation to better promote and position Slavonia as a tourist destination.The initiative has been launched, it is now up to you, and especially to the tourist workers in Slavonia, to support it in their own way and to finally show the synergy of all tourist destinations in Slavonia. It’s all up to the people, it’s all up to you.More information soon #DariTurizmaSlavonija2018Related news:SELIMIR OGNJENOVIĆ: “TO CROATIA’S MOST BEAUTIFUL SECRET ”I WANT TO EXPRESS SUPPORT WITH ALL MY HEART TO HOST THE DAYS OF CROATIAN TOURISM 2018NEDO PINEZIĆ: “DHT 2018 IN SLAVONIA” TESTS THE SERIOUSNESS AND CREDIBILITY OF ALL POLITICIANS AND POLITICAL ACTORS WHO HAVE EVER ANNOUNCED SUPPORT PROGRAMS FOR CROATIANRANKO FILIPOVIC, HUPKT: WE ALL WANT TO HELP THE INITIATIVE BE REALIZED AND FOR TOURIST EMPLOYEES TO COME TO SLAVONIA AND FEEL ITS WEALTHlast_img read more

Florida Ends ‘Gator Bait’ cheer at the Swamp due to “racist history”

first_imgThe University of Florida is banning its “Gator Bait” cheer at sporting events because of “historic racist imagery associated with the phrase,” school president Kent Fuchs announced Thursday.As part of a university-wide review to help the school take steps against racism, Fuchs highlighted the cheer as an action that will be taken immediately.“While I know of no evidence of racism associated with our ‘Gator Bait’ cheer at UF sporting events, there is horrific historic racist imagery associated with the phrase,” Fuchs said. “Accordingly, University Athletics and the Gator Band will discontinue the use of the cheer.”the band plays familiar tune prompts fans to make the gator chomp motion with their arms and shout “Gator Bait!”African American babies were used as alligator bait, according to the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University, citing newspaper articles and imagery from the late 1800s and early 20th century. The term “alligator bait” was also used as a racial slur against African Americans.According to ESPN: Lawrence Wright, who popularized the phrase, “If you ain’t a Gator, ya Gator bait, baby,” after saying it following a win over Florida State in 1995, told The Gainesville Sun he was upset with the decision to remove the cheer and wants to talk to Fuchs.“I’m not going for it,” the former safety told the Sun. “I created something for us. It’s a college football thing. It’s not a racist thing, It’s about us, the Gator Nation. And I’m black. What about our history as the Gator Nation? We took a program from the top five to No. 1 in the country. I think I’ve done enough, put in the sweat and tears, to get to offer my opinion about something like this.”last_img read more
