Water line breaks affect Moudy for third time this year

first_imgFacebook printAt around 6:45 a.m. Monday, a 12-inch cast-iron pipe underneath the intersection of Princeton Street and University Drive burst.The Fort Worth Water Department began repairing the pipe about an hour later, which ultimately forced crews to shut off the water that runs through the Moudy buildings by 3:45 p.m. Both of the building managers were notified of the incident, however, some students did not know there was a water leak.“I spent most of the day in Moudy and had no idea there were any problems,” said senior communication major Makayla Soria. “It wasn’t until I was walking on University and saw all of the workers and someone outside told me.”The Fort Worth Water Department owns most of the pipes that run under University Drive and has lines that run off to TCU. “Those pipes connect to a service meter that run the water connected to TCU’s property through a distribution system,” said Mary Gugliuzza, the communications director for the Fort Worth Water Department. The pipe that burst on Princeton Street released a pressure that needed to be isolated in order to fix the line. Gugliuzza said the way to isolate this pressure was to cut off the main water lines in Moudy. Chris Honkomp, assistant vice chancellor for facilities of the physical plant, said this is the third water main break that has affected Moudy this year.Water bubbles up from the cracks in the sidewalks outside of the Moudy buildings due to a water main break last semester (photo by Richard Edgemon).“There’s no exact reason we can identify why the pipes burst,” Honkomp said, “but the pipes connected to the Moudy buildings are older, cast iron pipes which can be affected by the clay earth that surrounds them when the earth moves.” Most of the newer buildings on TCU’s campus use high-density polyethylene pipes, which are more resilient to clay earth movements, Honkomp said. “Any project where the physical plant can go in to the water system, we try to go in and replace the old piping to avoid this problem.” Honkomp said.Gugliuzza said the issue was resolved at 11:33 p.m. Monday night but to expect Princeton Street to be closed for the next few days while they repair the street. The bathrooms and all of the water lines in the Moudy buildings are now safe to use.

Italian authorities seize cocaine from Panama worth millions

first_img ROME – Italian customs officers became suspicious when they found bags of “sugar” addressed to a company that had nothing to do with food processing, only to discover cocaine worth millions of euros. The 114 kilograms (251 pounds) of “extremely pure” cocaine were in a container unloaded from a freighter from Panama that docked at the southern port of Gioia Tauro, the customs service said on Feb. 18. Destined for the north of Italy, the cocaine’s street value was put at some €20 million euros (US$26.5 million), the customs service said, adding that police anti-mafia units also were involved in the investigation.

Chinese tourists expect traditional cuisine, nature parks and cultural and historical monuments from Croatia

first_imgThe last presentation presented the previous experiences of the Zagreb Tourist Board in working with the Chinese market. According to their data, the number of arrivals of Chinese tourists in Zagreb in 2018 increased by 9 percent, and the number of overnight stays by 10 percent, compared to the previous year. Likewise, a certain increase is expected in 2019 as well. They point out that the average length of stay of Chinese tourists in Zagreb is 1,98 days. They also presented the Chinese micro-websites of the Tourist Board, which contain a lot of information in Chinese, as well as promotional materials. The conference was opened by the editor of the HrTurizam portal, Goran Rihelj, and the founder and director of ProConcept, Andreja Gazdek. During the introduction to the conference, the importance of holding this type of conference was briefly explained in order for the profession to better prepare and harmonize its offers to the Chinese tourism market. The main presentation went to IPPWORLD Development Director, Joanne Chan. In her presentation, Chan focused on the profile of the Chinese market, but also the key sales strategies in the Chinese market. She noted that Chinese tourists often travel outside the European tourist season. In other words, Chinese tourists most often travel between November and February and September and October. Ivan Puškar, founder and director of the tourist consulting company Coned turizam, in his presentation, among other things, emphasized the importance of adapting the Croatian tourist offer to Chinese guests. He stressed that tourism service providers should introduce Mandarin as a language of communication through written and electronic materials, introduce oriental cuisine in their offer, improve hotel service (teapots and cookers in rooms), adjust room layout (feng shui) and the like. The representative of the office in Hungary for UnionPay International, Jessie Jiang, presented the most used electronic payment system in China – UnionPay. This claim is supported by the fact that every adult in China has at least one UnionPay card. Precisely for this reason, as many tourist entrepreneurs in Croatia should accept this type of payment, but ATMs should also offer payments from accounts. A brief overview of Croatian-Chinese relations was presented by Siniša Malus, Communications Manager of the Business Association of China and Southeast Europe (CSEBA) through the presentation “Croatian-Chinese relations – yesterday, today and tomorrow”. Andreja Gazdek continued her presentation with a presentation on the topic “Importance of the Chinese emitting market on a global level” in which she pointed out the exceptional expansion of Chinese tourists in the world in recent years. According to COTRI, as many as 180 million tourist visits by Chinese travelers are expected this year. She also put the importance of Croatia in perspective, considering that we are one of the top destinations for Chinese tourists. Gazdek also pointed out that only 6 percent of the population of China has a passport, but by 2020 it is expected to increase to 14 percent, or from 80 million to 200 million. “The potential of the Chinese market is huge and constantly growing, but in order to improve the quality of our offer we need to introduce direct flights, simplify the issuance of visas, create products they want to buy and consume, become visible and promote themselves in the Chinese market”, Concluded Gazdek. JOANNE CHAN, IPPWORLD: THE AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE IS MOST IMPORTANT TO CHINESE TOURISTS. THEY WANT TO SEE HOW LOCAL PEOPLE LIVE, WORK AND HAVE FUN Božidar Antolec, director of the Tourist Board of the Municipality of Lekenik, in his presentation entitled “How to network local communities and entrepreneurs”, stressed the importance of cooperation and strategic consolidation of economic entities within less developed counties into clusters. “The strategic goals of establishing the cluster are a competitive and sustainable product, restructuring all forms of tourism in the direction of high-income products, creating better business conditions and support for small and medium enterprises, as well as strengthening the local community as a driver of development and higher employment rates.”, Said Antolec. Also, as a good example, he mentioned the project of the Tourist Board of the Municipality of Lekenik “Film Route Anatevka” which visits the locations of the film classic “Fiddler on the Roof”, but also “Apprentice Hlapić”, which were shot in Lekenik. The conference concluded with a panel discussion on the previous experience in working with the Chinese market, which was attended by Iva Bahunek, director of the Croatian Hotel Employers Association (UPUHH), Tomislav Fain, president of the Association of Croatian Travel Agencies (UHPA) and Ernest Svažić, mayor of Krapinske Toplice. and moderator Goran Rihelj. It is this potential that should be used to extend the Croatian tourism season for most of the year. She also pointed out that Chinese tourists expect traditional cuisine, nature parks and cultural and historical monuments from Croatia. As a special group of Chinese tourists to whom they would have to adapt, Chan cited the so-called FIT (Free Independent Travelers). Namely, these are tourists who are mostly between 18 and 44 years old, of medium and higher purchasing power, like to organize their own travel and spend on average over 20.000 kuna per trip. Domestic tourism providers need to adapt to them primarily in terms of technology. “FIT members do almost everything via mobile phones. From payments, shopping, ordering food and taxis, through conversations and social networks and the like. They are completely dependent on their mobile phones when planning a trip”, Points out Chan. She also commented on the importance of so-called transcreation, that is, creative translation. This type of translation evokes an emotional connection, unlike standard translation. As much material as possible should be transcribed into Chinese. The Chinese emitting tourist market in Croatia has become one of the most important in recent years. The numbers themselves support this the most. It is estimated that in 2018, more than 200.000 Chinese tourists visited Croatia, ie in the last few years the number of visits increased by some 55 to 60 percent, and the number of overnight stays by 50 percent.

The conference was attended by numerous experts from the tourism and related sectors. The conference dealing with the issues of the Chinese emitting market is very important for the tourism sector, given the continuous growth of arrivals and overnight stays of Chinese tourists in Croatia. We hope that the importance of the discussion, but primarily of progress, in adapting the market for Chinese tourists will be recognized in the future as well.last_img read more

Dismissal of Geoff Cameron leaves Stoke boss Mark Hughes feeling frustrated

first_img But Hughes felt the Baggies midfielder over-reacted to ensure the Potters were left with 10 men at The Hawthorns and will consider appealing. He said: “We weren’t too happy with the reaction of the lad Yacob to be perfectly honest. I thought he has gone down with the intention of maybe getting Geoff sent off and unfortunately for us that’s what he’s able to do. “We’ll have a look at it on Sunday and make a decision on whether or not we appeal. My initial thought is we probably will appeal. “It was unfortunate. I thought Geoff has reacted to a late challenge on a leg he injured in the first half. It is understandable to a certain extent.” And Hughes felt the late red played a huge part in Evans’ injury-time winner. He added: “At set-plays you are one man down and they are throwing everyone forward. At some point there is someone free. “We could have done better to clear the chance, it’s bobbled across and ended up in the far post for the tap-in. “We certainly didn’t play anywhere near like we’re capable of.” Jonny Evans’ injury-time winner capped late drama after Cameron was dismissed minutes after Jonathan Walters had levelled for Stoke. Cameron walked with nine minutes left after he pushed Yacob in the back of the neck following the Argentinian’s challenge. It had been a dull game before Stephane Sessegnon’s first goal since October 2014 opened the scoring and set Albion up for successive wins. It was Tony Pulis’ third straight victory over his former club and the Baggies are now nine points clear of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone. Pulis said: “Irrespective of whether it’s against Stoke or anyone the most important thing is three points and back-to-back victories. It’s a busy period and we have gone into the game without four players. “To put in a performance we have done without four major players is fantastic. “Luckily for us it drops to Jonny at the end. He has been a great signing for us. He’s not just a good defender but his quality on the ball is first class. He just oozes class.” Sessegnon looked to be out of Pulis’ plans this season but he has fought his way back into the side. It was just his seventh goal in two-and-a-half years at Albion and Pulis wants the 31-year-old to score more. “I pulled him (aside) this week. I thought he was fantastic against Newcastle and told him he needed goals,” he added. Press Association Boss Mark Hughes accused Claudio Yacob of getting Geoff Cameron sent off after Stoke slipped to a 2-1 defeat at West Brom.last_img read more

Shopping Small – Not the Mall – In Fair Haven

first_imgStory and photos by Joseph SapiaFAIR HAVEN – Beverly Drotos stood outside Umberto’s Pizzeria on a recent night, noting the weather, around 40 degrees with a wind chill making it feel 10 degrees colder.“It’s a chilly night for this,” said Drotos, 45, manager of the local branch of 1st Constitution Bank.Drotos, who lives in the borough, and 1st Constitution were taking part in the Fair Haven Business Association’s second annual “Shop the Neighborhood,” held Thursday, Dec. 8, to acquaint businesses with customers during the winter holiday season. Businesses, some that normally close earlier in the day, celebrated Shop the Neighborhood from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., welcoming customers with snacks, beverage and live music.Drotus bundled up, with the staff of Umberto’s bringing her a hot chocolate to stay warm. She remained bubbly in the cold as she talked of the warm feeling of the night and handed out fabric shopping bags, filled with candy, coloring pads, cups, and bicycle reflectors, compliments of the association.At River Road Books, co-owner Laurie Potter showed books to Marshall Prosswimmer (left) and Rich Batting, both of Fair Haven. The shops stayed open late to welcome visitors.“It’s just to encourage people to come out and visit the local stores – extended hours, personal service you get in Mom-and-Pop shops,” said dentist Paul Ferguson, who is treasurer of the approximately 55-member association. “They like the small-town feel of it. Somebody referred to it as Mayberry by the Sea.”“It’s a fun, festive night with families and shoppers,” said Karen Rumage, co-owner of River Road Books.Those out and about could drive, walk or ride a trolley-style bus to participating businesses along River Road for about a half-mile from Navesink Avenue to Minton Lane.“We love community events,” said borough resident Stacey Strandberg, 44. “Events like this make this town so special.”Strandberg was with her daughters, Ashley, 10, and Ava, 9. They bought winter knit hats at Moon Child, a boutique for girls in the tween years.“We really do believe in shopping locally,” Strandberg said.Strandberg’s friend, Maggie Murray, 48, and her daughter, Katie, 10, also of Fair Haven, bought a shirt and sweater. Murray said they were out to “support local business, they’re good to us all year.“This is my first year doing it,” Murray said. “I try to shop locally, anyway.”Jennifer Costa, owner of Moon Child, said some shoppers “are on a mission” to buy, others “still looking around” for holiday gift-giving.Costa, 30, who grew up in Fair Haven and lives there, was serving chocolate-covered pretzels, candy, chocolate chip cookies, gingerbread men and champagne. In the background, Quinn Nolan, 15, who lives in town, played his tenor saxophone. Costa described Quinn as “amazing.”The red trolley bus shuttled visitors during the “Shop The Neighborhood” event in Fair Haven on Thursday, Dec. 8.“It’s fun,” Quinn said. “I play Christmas songs. People walk by, say, ‘Thank you’ (or) ‘It’s good.’”Lulu Lyle and Anna McCarthy, both 14 of Fair Haven, were Christmas shopping, enjoying Shop the Neighborhood.“It’s really cute,” Anna said. “It gets you into the holiday spirit, I guess.”Lulu said she liked “seeing all the families outside.”At Canyon Pass Provisions, which co-owner Genevieve DeBree described as an “outdoor lifestyle store,” a fire pit burned out front, with the classic Christmas movie, “It’s A Wonderful Life,” starring Jimmy Stewart, playing in the background.Inside Canyon Pass’ lodge-style store – “People say, ‘I feel like I’m in Colorado, Vermont,’” DeBree said – visitors walked around and chatted. DeBree said customers support local business.“They come out with force, with a purpose to support us,” said DeBree, who owns Canyon Pass with her husband, Derek, 47. “Retailing is really expanding (in Fair Haven).”Stores used to stay open late during the town’s lighting of its Christmas tree. But, this year, the event moved to its own night, said Genevieve DeBree, a borough resident.Charlie Krause, 17, played guitar and harmonica and sang at Canyon Pass.“The crowd here likes the music I like,” said Charlie, playing songs by the Grateful Dead, Neil Young, Elton John and Richard Thompson.Canyon Pass Provisions, an outdoor-lifestyle equipment and apparel store, had a fire pit going and the classic Christmas film, “It’s A Wonderful Life,” playing in the background during Fair Haven’s “Shop the Neighborhood” night.“I like how casual it is,” said Charlie, playing at Canyon Pass for the second year in a row. “I like doing things for fun. This part of my musical career I do for fun.”“He’s played a number of our events,” DeBree said. “He’s a very talented young man.”It is unclear how many people participate, Ferguson said. But he said it appeared busier than last year.“I love supporting local businesses,” said Rich Batting, 48, a borough resident who visited River Road Books with his partner, Marshall Prosswimmer, 52. “This bookstore is important. It’s like a dying breed.”The store is keyed in to the taste of customers and makes recommendations for their reading, Prosswimmer said. “It’s personalized.”“There’s nothing more depressing than a box store,” Batting said.last_img read more


first_imgPICK SIX CARRYOVER OF $36,151 INTO FRIDAY, TOTAL PICK SIX POOL SHOULD APPROACH $250,000 ARCADIA, Calif. (May 26, 2016)–Idle since Feb. 25, aptly named Show Stealer overhauled heavily favored Two Taps in deep stretch to take Thursday’s $60,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita by a head under Tyler Baze. Trained by Art Sherman and owned by her breeder, George Krikorian, Show Stealer got a mile and a sixteenth in 1:44.01.Fourth turning for home in a field of five fillies and mares aged three and up, Show Stealer swooped four-wide outside of pacesetter Big Break and Two Taps a furlong out and gradually gained the advantage the final sixteenth of a mile.Off at 5-1, Show Stealer paid $12.80, $3.20 and $2.60. A 4-year-old Kentucky-bred filly by Eskendereya, Show Stealer is out of Krikorian’s Carson City mare, The Green Owl. Headquartered with Sherman at Los Alamitos, she improved her overall record to 17-3-2-2 and with the winner’s share of $36,000, increased her earnings to $155,760.“She’s a cool filly, one of those that tries real hard,” said Sherman. “She gets a check just about every time. There’s a chance we could run her back before the end of the meet (July 10).”An impressive first condition allowance winner at the distance here on March 5, Two Taps was attentive to the pace and appeared to be in a good striking position, third, going into the far turn. She overtook Big Break leaving the furlong pole, but was outrun late, finishing second, 2 ¼ lengths in front of Big Break.Ridden by Mike Smith, Two Taps was off at 3-5 and paid $2.20 and $2.10.Big Break, who was ridden by Edwin Maldonado, set fractions of 23.72, 47.35, 1:11.39 and 1:37.33.
