Growth, growth and only growth, until when growth? Dubrovnik is shooting at the seams and boasts a record season

first_imgGrowth, growth and only growth, until when growth?Dubrovnik continues to achieve record tourist results in the first eight months! According to the data of the system for registration and deregistration of tourists E-visitor, not counting data from nautical, from January 1 to August 31, 2018, 921 tourists stayed in Dubrovnik, which is 531% more than in the same period in 6 . This year, three million overnight stays were realized five days earlier than last year. As of August 31, 2018, 3 overnight stays were realized, ie 063% more than last year. In the first eight months, the most numerous tourists were from the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Australia, Croatia, Finland and Norway. From 1 January to 31 August this year, 472 guests stayed in hotel accommodation, which is an increase of 871% compared to last year, and 5 overnight stays were realized, 1% more than last year. In the first seven months of this year, there were 573 arrivals in private accommodation, ie 658% more than in the same period last year, and 2 overnight stays, which is 335% more than in 980. Currently, almost 20 tourists stay in Dubrovnik. From 000 August to 1 August, 31 tourists stayed in Dubrovnik (226% more than in August 771), and 7 overnight stays were realized (3% more than in August 2017). The most numerous tourists in August were from the following countries: the United Kingdom, France, Italy, the United States, Spain, Germany, Australia, Ireland, Croatia and the Netherlands, according to the Dubrovnik Tourist Board.Champagne is opening for another record season, and it is this uncontrolled growth that is destroying the entire city. It destroys the freedom that the city is so proud of. Free movement of the local population, because the citizens of Dubrovnik can no longer normally go to the store, post office, pharmacy, doctor normalno due to the incredible crowds, the inability to park and move.Growth in itself is not a purposeGrowth in itself is not a purpose. For when more that growth, certainly not for the domestic economy and the local population because the citizens of Dubrovnik have long since lost their city. It is this famous fascination with numbers that will lead us to ruin, in fact we are already unaware of it. We live on rent from the sun and the sea, ie positional rent. The biggest profit from tourism is on VAT, and instead of encouraging the local economy through tourism that connects various industries vertically and horizontally, we encourage imports.We fall for eggs, potatoes, mussels, lettuce… What is Dubrovnik’s daily need for home-made eggs? It is a question and a challenge that we have to deal with.When we are so successful and intoxicated with statistics, why do we have a problem with the workforce? Why are there no students enrolled as waiters at the Ambroz Haračić High School in Lošinj this year, while only two students at Rab have enrolled in the profession?We have destroyed the profession, the workforce, the local economy, destinations are cracking at our seams and our main natural resource.For the Tourist Board of the City of Dubrovnik, the Institute of Tourism conducts a large survey “Attitudes and consumption of tourists and visitors in Dubrovnik – TOMAS Dubrovnik 2018”. It will be interesting to see the final results. Dubrovnik is unfortunately a destination for half or a day, it does not tell its story about the achievements and power of the Republic of Dubrovnik, as if it only makes sense to walk through the walls and take a selfie to brag that someone was in Dubrovnik.The only direction is strategic and sustainable tourism, the rest leads to ruin in the long run.last_img read more

Hamstring injury puts David Fletcher’s rookie season in jeopardy

first_imgThe Cypress native has seen time at four different positions and has contributed 1.8 Wins Above Replacement, according to both Baseball Reference and Fangraphs.In his only at-bat of the game Sunday, Fletcher poked a 2-and-2 cut fastball from Marco Gonzales down a deserted first-base line. He slowed abruptly before reaching first base, then jogged leisurely to second base with plenty of time to spare, favoring his injured left leg.Kaleb Cowart replaced Fletcher as a pinch runner and remained in the game at second base.Fletcher, 24, said he has no history of hamstring injuries.“I think it’s just a minor strain,” Fletcher said. “Hopefully it’s pretty quick, but I don’t know if it’s season ending. … It’s nothing too crazy.” LONG LOOK FOR FERNANDEZJose Fernandez’s name was not in the lineup Sunday, a rarity this month. The 30-year-old rookie had started eight consecutive games, all at first base. Jefry Marte, a right-handed hitter, took his place against the left-handed Gonzales.Fernandez is one of 15 Angels to make their major league debuts in 2018, a franchise record. After three back-and-forth trips on the Salt Lake shuttle, he began the day Sunday with an encouraging .738 on-base plus slugging percentage since Sept. 1.Are 93 plate appearances enough to demonstrate that Fernandez has proven himself as an everyday major leaguer?“To say he’s shown enough, I don’t know if he’s had enough of a look to say that he’s shown anything like that,” Scioscia said.If anything, that bodes well for the final two weeks of Fernandez’s season. The Angels have no reason not to give him a longer look at first base. The position will remain a question mark so long as Albert Pujols remains under contract. At 38 years old, Pujols’ health no longer allows him to play a full season in the field.Pujols will enter his age-39 season having undergone procedures on his knee and elbow after making 70 starts at first base in 2018. The Angels could use a left-handed hitting complement to the right-handed veteran. During his eight consecutive starts, Fernandez reached base in all but one game and hit the first two home runs of his career.“His bat-to-ball skills are terrific,” Scioscia said. “He can square it up, uses all fields, but i think everyone loves the way he swings the bat, loves his approach at the plate.”FOR STARTERSAfter Monday’s off-day, Tyler Skaggs will start the opener of a three-game series against the Oakland A’s on Tuesday. The left-hander, who hasn’t pitched since Aug. 11 because of a groin strain, threw a bullpen Sunday.The A’s are expected to counter with an “opener,” a relief pitcher who is not expected to complete multiple innings. Right-hander Liam Hendriks has been used in this role most often, and he’s pitched only one inning in the last four days.Felix Peña will oppose left-hander Brett Anderson on Wednesday, and right-hander Matt Shoemaker will oppose A’s right-hander Edwin Jackson on Thursday.ALSOHailey Dawson, 8, threw the ceremonial first pitch to complete her tour across all 30 MLB parks. Dawson was born without three fingers on her right hand and uses a 3D-printed hand to throw the ball. … Shohei Ohtani still has not announced whether he has accepted a doctor’s recommendation of Tommy John surgery on his injured right elbow. Asked whether becoming a closer was an option, Scioscia said that “should be tough to do” if Ohtani continues his routine as a hitter. “Once he makes a decision, he should be able to get back into the rotation and be the dynamic starter he can be,” Scioscia said. … Ohtani tweaked his left ankle sliding into second base on an unsuccessful steal attempt in the ninth inning. Although the ankle was wrapped heavily after the game, Scioscia said Ohtani “will be fine for Tuesday.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img ANAHEIM – David Fletcher’s rookie season might be over after the infielder strained his left hamstring in the first inning Sunday against the Seattle Mariners.Although he was able to walk off the field on his own after hitting a double, Fletcher will not accompany the Angels on their trip to Oakland on Monday. The Angels have 12 games remaining this season, ending with a Sept. 29 home game against the A’s.“He’ll be evaluated (Monday) but naturally any time you tweak a hamstring with two weeks to go in the season, it’s not good,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.In 307 plate appearances this season, Fletcher has a .275 batting average with one home run, 18 doubles and two triples in 80 games. He’s gotten the majority of the starts at second base since the Angels traded Ian Kinsler to the Boston Red Sox.last_img read more
