The new installation at Melbourne International Airport in Melbourne, Florida (in the southeastern United States), inaugurated on 21 February, will be initially dedicated to producing Phenom 100 four-passenger executive jets, a spokesperson for the firm said. The inauguration “of the first U.S. industrial site in Melbourne is a landmark for Embraer, as we fulfill our goal of bringing operations closer to our customers and to our largest market,” affirmed Frederico Fleury Curado, Embraer’s president and CEO, according to a press release.

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. Agrolaguna, PorečArman Franc, VižinadaArman Marijan, VižinadaWelcome, MotovunCattunar, BrtoniglaClai, KrasicaCoronica, UmagListen, UmagDegrassi, SavudrijaKabola, BujeKozlovic, MomjanMatosevic, Sv.

Stanford defense tips result of Rose Bowl

first_imgWide receiver Kenzel Doe had just one reception for five yards, but no Wisconsin receiver caught more than three balls against a relentless Stanford defense.[/media-credit]PASADENA, Calif. -There weren’t any surprises New Year’s Day at the Granddaddy of Them All. Two teams, two old-school styles of football and two relentless defenses graced the field in a low-scoring, smashmouth affair that many already saw coming.But, on one particular afternoon, No. 6 Stanford’s defense (12-2, 8-1 Pac-12) shined brighter than anything Wisconsin (8-6, 4-4 Big Ten) could put on the field, dictating the tempo of the game and batting down critical passes in a 20-14 Cardinal win.“We were defeated by a very good Stanford football team,” interim head coach Barry Alvarez said. “They didn’t surprise me how they played, as you saw that on films, they’ve been a very consistent all year.”Stanford’s talented front seven in the 3-4 defense constantly bruised Wisconsin’s run game and never allowed much of an offensive tempo, as the Badgers allowed the Cardinal to record four tackles for a loss and five running plays for no gain.One of those plays was a fourth and goal for Wisconsin at Stanford’s 1-yard line, a play where Mequon native and Cardinal senior defensive end Ben Gardner slipped off of a block from Badger left tackle Ricky Wagner and stuffed running back James White in the backfield. One of the few key moments of the game, the play resulted in a turnover on downs in the opening drive of the second quarter and robbed the Badgers of a critical touchdown at a juncture of the game where they were down 14-0.Perhaps the biggest difference in the game was the height of the Cardinal’s down defensive linemen in the game, as defensive ends Gardner and Henry Anderson each recorded a pass breakup and got their hands in the passing lanes when they weren’t harassing Badgers quarterback Curt Phillips.Gardner (six tackles on the game) and Anderson (three tackles) had perhaps the best height of any defensive end duo UW had faced the entire season, with Gardner standing at 6-foot-4 and Anderson at 6-foot-6.“They are very tall,” Phillips said. “I don’t think I have a low release, but I think it’s almost a credit to our offensive line because they didn’t allow those guys to get in. The only thing you can do whenever you get stoned at the line is to jump up and try to tip balls and that’s really the only chance they had.”Phillips point was valid, as Wisconsin’s offensive line never allowed Stanford to sack their quarterback. The Cardinal’s lone sack came thanks to an intentional grounding penalty on Melvin Gordon on an attempted trick play on a jet-sweep in the first quarter.But while Stanford recorded just three total pass breakups, those numbers don’t reflect the total times the Stanford defensive line was able to get its hands on Wisconsin passes. Numerous passes were deflected, including a lucky bounce for UW that saw a deflected ball fall into the hands of wide receiver Jared Abbrederis for 22 yards and a first down, as the next play ended in a Montee Ball touchdown run and brought the score to 14-7 in the second quarter.The most important tipped ball of the day came when Stanford defensive end Josh Mauro lined up at nose tackle. With the score 20-14 in Stanford’s favor with just a little over two minutes remaining in the game, Phillips stepped back to pass. Even though he was double-teamed and stalemated by Badgers center Travis Frederick and left guard Ryan Groy, Mauro extended both his hands and was able to jump up, catching his left hand on the ball as Phillips targeted an open Jacob Pedersen.As the ball changed trajectory it found the awaiting arms of Stanford’s Usua Amanam. And when the Cardinal nickelback stood up to show the crowd his prize to screaming roars of approval from the team’s fans, it was all but over for Wisconsin.“I really thought we were going to be able to go down (on that last drive) and move the ball,” Frederick said. “The pass protection was pretty decent, especially since it was against a great Stanford defense that had so many sacks.“They got a hand on the ball and tipped it up and that’s the story.”But Stanford’s style of play on the defensive line also allowed room for Phillips to break the contain defense and escape the pocket, plays that kept several key Wisconsin’s drives alive. He finished with 64 yards on five carries in his first career Rose Bowl start.Maybe that’s what kept a healthy Joel Stave on the sideline for the Badgers was Phillips’ ability to extend the play, as the veteran used a crafty move – faking a step out of bounds on the left sideline – to create a 38-yard gain on a first and 10 during the waning two minutes before halftime, setting up the Badgers’ tying touchdown pass to Jordan Fredrick six plays later.Though the Badgers’ offensive line kept the Cardinal at bay early, Stanford adjusted to Wisconsin’s 14-point second quarter to hold their opponent scoreless for the entire second half. Like many cases this season, it ended up being a tale of two halves for UW, as the team gained 219 total yards on offense in the first half, but recorded just 82 yards in the second half.“We just weren’t able to produce what we needed to produce as an offensive line,” Frederick said. “We didn’t play the way we needed to in the second half.”last_img read more
