For the second time in a row, the famous publishing house Michelin from Paris has published a special edition of the red guide, which it has once again dedicated entirely to Istria.It is a publication that Michelin publishes for important gourmet destinations such as Paris, Barcelona, Trentino Alto Adige, etc., which are included in national editions, but due to their specificity, importance of territory and gourmet offer, they are especially presented in such editions.Considering that according to the criteria of Michelin Istria is defined as a small destination with a limited number of recommended addresses (the whole of Croatia has a total of three restaurants with a MICHELIN star and 55 restaurants with a recommendation) in the new Istrian edition, the region has once again confirmed one star. by adding two more new facilities to the list of recommendations – Buščina and Badi, both from Umag. ” This year’s important novelty is that the guide, in addition to the tourist part of Green Michelin, also presents the 16 best Istrian wineries and an equal number of oil mills.This edition is very important for Istria, and its effects are especially important for the next perspective of Istria. Namely, we are already working on the 2019 edition. According to the first and initial negotiations, we will have the opportunity to include a larger number of recommended addresses or those with asterisks, but it depends on our caterers and their performance and, clearly, how they will be evaluated by inspectors. said the director of the Istria County Tourist Board, Denis Ivošević.With this, Istria again managed to make a step forward and strengthen cooperation with Michelin, which is an additional quality promotion tool that puts a special focus on the entire destination. Istria has been present in almost all relevant European gastronomic guides for many years, and the red Michelin guide is certainly a great recognition for Istrian gastronomy. “What is crucial is the fact that our space is open, that we have the opportunity for our caterers to show themselves and prove that Istria can and must do much better. We should all appreciate the space that is opening up to us, because it is enough to remember that Istria has been trying for almost ten years to reach the position of thinking about us at all, to get a chance to show ourselves. Today, we have that position, I hope we will be wise and know how to use this great chance that is offered to us, because there is no remedial exam, ” Ivošević concludes.The story of Michelin, at least as far as Istria is concerned, has lasted for almost ten years, and before that date, Istria worked for almost a decade in an organized, dedicated and extremely high quality gourmet scene with the basic goal of gaining the dignity and reputation that undoubtedly belonged to it. , but this needed to be confirmed in real life and in the market. Thus, in the company of about two thousand elite restaurants around the world, the so-called. golden selection, in 2018, with one Michelin star for the second time in a row, the only Monte restaurant in Rovinj entered.Guide Michelin – Istria Croatia It is available in English-German, and is printed in 15 copies, which are distributed free of charge and, in addition to the listed restaurants, will be located in the most frequent key places in Istria.Red guide Michelin Istra Croatia – special edition Za Wine roads of Istria Michelin states that the sixteen selected wineries represent the best reflection of wine tourism on the peninsula.

The article below has been updated to include the duration and the value of the FPSO contract in Vietnam. New information emerged on Thursday afternoon. Malaysia’s Yinson has, through its Vietnam JV PTSC AP, entered into an interim contract with Vietnam’s PTSC to charter FPSO PTSC Lam Son for the petroleum operations within the Lam Son field, offshore Vietnam.PTSC AP is a joint venture company owned by Yinson and PetroVietnam Technical Services Corporation (PTSC) each holding 49% and 51% interest in it, respectively.To remind, the original contract PTSC AP had for the FPSO was terminated last year as LSJOC, the company that had contracted the FPSO for the operation at Lam Son field, was liquidated.In a statement this week, Yinson said that PTSC had on March 26 signed an interim deal with PetroVietnam for the time charter of PTSC FPSO Lam Son backdated to July 1, 2017, pending the appointment of PVEP as the official operator of Lam Son Field.Yinson did not initially say how long the vessel is expected to stay in Vietnam. Info found on the company’s website shows the FPSO as having a firm contract until 2021, with an option to extend until 2024.However, when pressed for more details by Bursa Malaysia, Yinson on Thursday said the interim contract would be effective from July 1, until December 31, 2018 (Maximum Tenure) or an earlier date if it is terminated “pursuant to termination of the time charter interim contract or if a new charter contract is executed (thereby superseding the interim contract).”Yinson said that the value of the interim contract is approximately $27.3 million, based on the December 31, 2018, expiration date.The Lam Son FPSO is capable of producing 15,000-20,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd) and has a storage capacity of up to 650,000 barrels of oil.While the Lam Son FPSO contract news is positive for PTSC AP, the JV is looking closely at Repsol and the Ca Ron Do field in Vietnam.Force majeureNamely, the joint venture’s $1 billion, ten-year, FPSO contract with Repsol in Vietnam might be in jeopardy following reports that Vietnam has ordered Repsol to halt work on Ca Rong Do field amid pressure from China.Repsol’s subsidiary Talisman Vietnam, the operator of the Ca Rong Do field, has informed PTSC of a force majeure event directing the oil company “not to carry out the scheduled work program on the CRD Project for the time being.”In a statement on Tuesday, Yinson, a partner in PTSC Ca Rong Do Ltd JV with Vietnam’s PTSC, said the JV sought clarification from Talisman on the nature of the alleged force majeure event, including particulars of how Talisman’s performance of its obligations under the FPSO has been affected.“PTSC CRD will continue to monitor the situation closely and will assert its rights under all relevant contracts and in laws, for any claims, liabilities, losses, and/or damages against or suffered by it in any way concerning this matter,” Yinson said on Tuesday.UK’s BBC has reported, citing a well-placed source, that PetroVietnam has ordered Repsol to suspend its Ca Rong Do work, to avoid confrontation with China due to the maritime border issue in the South China Sea. This could, a BBC source said, lead to Repsol losing $200m in investments already made.The Ca Rong Do field development, located in Block 07/03 offshore southern Vietnam, is planned for development using a tension leg wellhead platform (TLWP), a tender assisted drilling vessel, and a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.Offshore Energy Today Staff

Abu Dhabi: After a scintillating World Cup 2019, global cricket fever is set to sweep the UAE as a sensational roster of cricket superstars prepare to take the pitch at the Zayed Cricket Stadium for the Abu Dhabi T10 League from November 15 to 24.The third season of the T10 League will be headlined by several international cricket captains and newly minted World Cup heroes. The star-studded line-up is set to include Eoin Morgan, Shoaib Malik, Darren Sammy, Angelo Mathews, Lasith Malinga, Shane Watson and Cameron White, Mohammad Shahzad, Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo – all putting their hands up for team selection in the 2019 Abu Dhabi T10 draft.Commenting on the league, Morgan said: “I heard from a lot of parents that this year’s (ICC World Cup) was the first one they could enjoy with their sons or daughters. Kids are discovering the joy of cricket all over again. Well, the T10 is brilliant for bringing kids and first-time fans into the stadium, where you’ve got all the stars, all the action and all the glamour you could hope for. It’s just brilliant for the future of cricket all around.” Former West Indies captain Sammy shared a similarly positive outlook towards the tournament and its new home.

WEST Indies could have their limited-overs stars in the fray for national selection, particularly for the 50-over format, after Courtney Browne, the chairman of selectors, hinted at the possibility of the WICB revisiting the eligibility criterion.Currently, the WICB has followed a stringent policy of considering only those players who have featured in the domestic 50-over competition, one that goes back to 2010, under the regime of Julian Hunte and Ernest Hilaire.The current criterion has ruled out a bunch of senior players including Dwayne Bravo, Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine and Andre Russell.None of them were part of West Indies’ most recent series against Pakistan, which they lost 2-1, falling further behind in their race to be among the top eight teams in the ICC rankings and so qualify directly for the 2019 World Cup. But if this change in selection policy is cleared, West Indies could significantly boost their chances of fielding a full-strength team leading up to the showpiece event.“There is some discussion going on about revisiting the eligibility rule,” Browne told Line and Length, a Barbados-based network. “I know it’s with a working committee. That will then go to the board. But we have to understand our domestic cricket is key.”Players coming out of domestic cricket and showing they can perform at the international level is important. Yes, we have to look at it [the eligibility rule] but also be mindful that we have to develop our own domestic product, a stage where we can have a very good standard of regional cricket.”However, Browne also made it clear he would rather not have a situation where young players who have come through the regional system are ignored. Vishaul Singh and Shimron Hetmyer, who captained West Indies to the Under-19 World Cup title last year, are two examples he cited while explaining the need to maintain continuity. The pair gave modest returns – 159 runs in 12 innings between them – having played their first three Tests over the last couple of months.“We have a lot of young developing players, they’re all bunched together in terms of number of Tests, that’s par for the course. When you have a bunch of people you’re exposing to international cricket, you will tend to get these sorts of performances. But the good thing about it is, you have the coaching team and you have to give them some time to develop players.“There’s no regret [in giving them opportunities]. They came through the system, we understand they’re young players and need time to develop. When you’re looking at development process, it’s going to be a slow process. We’re not going to find a sensation overnight.”Browne was pleased with the enthusiasm of the new recruits. “They’ve shown the fans here’s a bunch of young people who are showing fight. It has shown the players too that with determination and passion like that, you can be competitive.”Bravo had recently said he was available for T20 selection but would not give up his contracts around the world to play domestic cricket in the West Indies because playing in those tournaments did not guarantee selection. He had also said things could change if “structure changes or something different happens”.(ESPN Cricinfo)
Students walking through the North University Park area will notice a new fixture on the sidewalks this week -— 22 patrolling security guards in bright yellow jackets.The university has hired Contemporary Services Corporation to monitor the area, stationing guards at fixed locations in the North University Park area. The USC Department of Public Safety hopes the CSC security ambassadors will help make the area feel safer.Watching · A Contemporary Services Corporation security ambassador patrols the vicinity of campus as DPS beefs up its safety efforts. – Amaresh Sundaram Kuppuswamy | Daily Trojan“What we’re trying to do is increase the perception of safety in the community, not necessarily decrease crime,” said DPS Chief Carey Drayton. “It’s hard to get the message across that it’s a safe community. Crime has been going down for the past three years but that means nothing if you only see the negative things and you only believe that’s what can happen to you so we need something that can improve the perception of safety.”DPS Capt. David Carlisle agreed the security ambassadors are an important component in helping students feel safe around campus.“They will act as an additional community resource to create a sense of well being and security,” said USC Department of Public Safety Capt. David Carlisle.The security ambassadors will not actually handle crimes, Drayton said, but they can report crimes either to their supervisor via radio or directly to LAPD.“It’s simple,” Drayton said. “Their main responsibility is to observe and report.”Charlie Lane, associate senior vice president of USC Career and Protective Services, said he thought the security ambassadors could actually help decrease crime rates, in addition to creating an atmosphere of greater safety.Lane said the university decided to employ CSC because, although crime is down, there’s still room for improvement to campus safety.“Due to a number of different factors, we still experience crime in and around our campuses and know that we remain vulnerable to it,” Lane said. “Consequently ,during the summer months, we took additional measures to ensure that the University Park campus is made as safe as possible, and that crime continues to decline.”Drayton said hiring private security officers was an easier solution than employing additional DPS officers, particularly in light of the university-wide hiring freeze.Hiring and training 22 DPS officers would be a large undertaking, Drayton said, and was one the university didn’t think was worth pursuing, given the option of hiring a private security force.“Getting 22 people all hired and trained and outfitted is not easy to do in a three-month period,” Drayton said. “That’s number one. Number two, the university does have a hiring freeze right now. And given the option of bringing on 22 full-time people or hiring someone from the outside, the decision was very easy hiring someone from the outside to see how this plays out.”Though more efficient than hiring more DPS officers, Drayton admitted hiring CSC personnel was a large investment — DPS would not disclose the exact cost. Still, Carlisle said, the investment is worthwhile if it helps students feel safe.Many students said the security ambassador program does make them feel safer.“I like it because, if they’re stationary, then I’ll know if I have to run somewhere, that’s where I’m running,” said Summer Lindman, a senior majoring in vocal arts.
Syracuse (1-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) dropped its matchup with South Florida (3-0, 1-0 American Athletic), 45-20, after leading 17-0 in the first quarter. The Orange struggled to capitalize after scoring two touchdowns and a field goal in that first frame.Here’s what we learned.Orange is the new fast… on defenseSouth Florida just spent 8 minutes 11 seconds to score six touchdowns against Syracuse. That’s an average of about 1 minute 21 seconds of possession per touchdown. And that’s still better than Louisville last week, who averaged 59 seconds per touchdown drive.Dino Babers has somewhat lived up to its billing, but his defense has lived up to a totally different and unwanted reputation. The Orange has been run around the field all season by its FBS opponents. On the season, that means Syracuse’s FBS opponents’ average scoring drive time is 1 minute 9 seconds — not exactly a good number.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textA big culprit of short drives has been the big plays Syracuse has been susceptible to.“We had a couple mental breakdowns,” linebacker Zaire Franklin said. “… Those mental breakdowns led to the momentum shifting. It made it a game. By the time we got back on our game, USF had a lot of momentum.”Injuries can cripple SyracuseSyracuse came into Saturday night’s game with four injuries to starters — center Jason Emerich, safeties Antwan Cordy and Kielan Whitner and cornerback Juwan Dowels — and faced several other injuries during the game.Early against South Florida, wide receiver Ervin Philips came off the field rotating his shoulder, but re-entered the game, Eric Dungey was slow to get up several times, running back Dontae Strickland was slow to get up with what looked like an ankle injury, Colin Byrne came off the field for a short time and safety Daivon Ellison was sent off the field for an apparent injury once.While those players appeared to be OK, several other players left the game for long stretches. Defensive tackle Kayton Samuels appeared to get his ankle rolled under another teammate and only returned to the game for one snap and Omari Palmer was injured and left the game, never coming back in.Altogether, the injuries have depleted an already thin roster. After the team exited the first quarter with a clean bill of health, it struggled mightily for the rest of the game.“We have to find a way to win with the people that we have, with the depth that we have, with the injuries that we have,” Babers said. “No excuses.”Eric Dungey’s stat line won’t be indicative of how he playedJust take a look at his stat line: 350 yards, 66 percent of his passes were completed and he threw two touchdowns. Yes, Dungey had two interceptions, but many Syracuse fans would have taken that stat line last season.This season, that amounted to a disappointing game. Dungey was inaccurate on several short throws and struggled after the first quarter, when he torched USF for 138 yards, both of his touchdowns and completed 77 percent of his passes.“So many times with the quarterback, I know that’s the one everyone can see, but a lot of times his days depend on so many other people,” Babers said. “On the offensive line, we lost our center, there were snaps that were on the ground that he had to handle, wide receivers making sure that they’re doing everything exactly right.“And when you’re standing back there and you’ve got three rushers coming at you, you have to make sure, ‘Is that guy getting blocked? Because this guy was supposed to come over here and block that guy, is that going to happen?”Dungey chalked his struggles up to “execution” in what was easily his worst game of the season.
