first_imgThe organization of events, festivals, concerts, especially larger ones that last for several days is extremely complex and demanding, although at first it may not look like a visitor from the outside, but the ToDo list of each organizer is longer and requires a lot of organizational skills and experience.From reporting to the police, provide security guards, emergency medical service, pay ZAMP, provide enough emergency space, trash cans and their regular cleaning both during the event and after each day. This is just a drop in the ocean of tasks and obligations of every organizer, and in accordance with the new trends, the organizers have a great responsibility in setting new trends.Thus, the Hum Youth Association, whose purpose was to gather young people and improve the quality of social life of young people in the municipality of Hum na Sutli, organizes for the 13th time the rock Hoomstock Festival and turn to ecology and give a clear message to visitors – Let’s protect our environment.

In cooperation with the festival’s partner, Laško beer, multiple branded plastic glasses were made, which visitors will pay HRK 10,00 at the entrance to the festival and use throughout the festival. After the festival, visitors can return the glasses and get a refund or simply leave glasses as a souvenir and souvenir from the festival, and continue to use them in your home.An excellent example of socially responsible business, as well as the responsibility of the organizers to its positive impact on both nature and visitors. In order for the festival to be successful and last for years, in addition to the quality lineup of that organization, they must have some identity and a brand concept and philosophy. Yes and festivals are brands that attract visitors according to their values ​​and not just according to the type of music.Well done to the organizers Hoomstock Festival, support them and follow this positive example.last_img read more

first_imgThe Demerara-Berbice Interconnected System (DBIS), which is operated by the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) on Friday reported yet another shutdown, causing power outages in several communities.The utility company announced shortly after that the system was indeed nonfunctional and promised that the situation will be rectified.On Wednesday, a burnt primary conductor on the L23 transmission line caused disruptions along Canefield to Auchlyne in Berbice. The interruption was necessary to connect the transmission line to the Skeldon generation facility.Meanwhile, two weeks ago, the DBIS recorded a shutdown due to a fault in one of the circuit breakers at the Garden of Eden Power Plant. This caused a “lock out” of the busbar, facilitating the transfer of power from four generators. According to GPL, the “sudden” loss of 18 megawatts of generator capacity resulted in the shutdown.GPL’s poor services have come under criticism many times, primarily by the general populace. Residents on the Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), were faced with constant power outages in April, just one day after the commissioning of a $1.8 billion power plant at Anna Regina.Just a few months ago, a loan was granted from the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) to the tune of US$20 million, to be provided to the Guyana Power Light (GPL) for upgrading the services.The loan was expected to facilitate the rehabilitation of 153km of GPL’s medium voltage and low voltage network and 6941 smart meters, including the associated transformers, service lines and distribution boxes along with the rehabilitation and extension of two 69/13.8KV substations at Kingston and Vreed-en-Hoop.last_img read more

first_imgSen. Peter Micciche, R-Soldotna, speaks in April 2017. Micciche supports a bill to impose a limit on state government spending. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)The Alaska Senate is considering a bill intended to limit how much the state government spends.Listen nowWhen oil prices soared in 2008, so did Alaska’s state spending. Soldotna Republican Sen. Peter Micciche said that if the state had the limit he supports back then, it would have spent less — and it would have another $15 billion in savings.“It’s not too late to make the changes in the future that we need to make, to ensure we don’t put ourselves in the same position that we’re in today,” Micciche said.Alaska does have a limit on spending in its state constitution. But the amount allowed under the constitutional limit has grown so much that the state is nowhere near it.Under Senate Bill 196, spending on state government departments couldn’t be more than $4.1 billion in the fiscal year starting next year. That’s a little more than the amount that Gov. Bill Walker proposed for the year starting this July.The limit would make a few exceptions. State payments to increase the Alaska Permanent Fund, permanent fund dividends and capital spending wouldn’t count toward the limit. And payments that the state is obligated to make to pay off debts also would be excluded.The limit would grow based on inflation.Anchorage Republican Sen. Natasha von Imhof said the spending cap would provide stability.“We can set something in place that people can predict for several years in the future and budget for,” von Imhof said. “And I think that just provides confidence. It provides predictability. And that is what we need for a future economic growth and investment.”Former Division of Water Director Michelle Hale opposed the bill.Hale said applying the limit could force cuts to state services.“Spending caps and arbitrary cuts are blunt tools. They’re blind,” Hale said. “If we say we have to cut by another $100 million this year and turn that over to the agencies to do, basically the Legislature is abrogating its responsibility to the state and the people of the state of Alaska.”The Senate Finance Committee discussed the bill Thursday and plans to consider it again Friday.last_img read more
