Trend and opportunity to redefine the tourist product. To what extent Croatia understands this and is working on it, we will find out soon. The Covid-19 pandemic also affects destination choices in certain European countries. The summer season has shown a significant increase in those who want to travel to rural and coastal places, apparently as a result of concerns about visiting highly populated urban areas, where it is more difficult to practice social distancing. A new increase in Covid-19 cases and the reintroduction of travel restrictions have halted the recovery of European tourism with 68% of international tourist arrivals in Europe, according to data from the European Travel Commission (ETC) for the third quarter of 2020 in the analysis “European tourism: trends and prospects” Read the full report in the attachment. Speaking after the publication of the report, the CEO of ETC Eduardo Santander he said the direction of economic recovery across Europe will depend heavily on the recovery of the tourism sector, a sector that generates close to 10% of EU GDP and occupies over 22 million jobs. This change in travel preferences can ultimately alleviate the issue of over-tourism (overtorusim) and allow destinations to boost sustainable tourism demand. Increased interest in travel to “secondary destinations” will relieve some popular tourist hotspots that have previously struggled with excessive travel demand and help more evenly spread the economic benefits of tourism in countries. It is the latest forecasts that predict a faster recovery of domestic travel in Europe, exceeding the level from 2019 to 2022. It is also predicted that a faster return of European arrivals by 2023 will be supported by faster easing of travel restrictions and lower perceived risk compared to long-distance travel. It is now predicted that the total volume of travel will increase return to pre-pandemic levels only by 2024. The importance of domestic and intra-European travel should not be underestimated in terms of the role it will play in the recovery of the tourism sector over the coming months, the ETC report emphasizes. Alleviating pandemic restrictions across Europe led to a slight increase in July and August 2020 compared to previous months, signaling people’s enthusiasm and desire to travel again. However, the recent re-imposition of locks and travel restrictions has quickly halted any chance of an early recovery. Looking ahead in the coming months, increased uncertainty and negative risks continue to diminish the outlook for European arrivals, which will decline by 2020% in 61.last_img read more

Published on January 20, 2013 at 4:03 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Both teams lost rhythm on offense for stretches. Both teams played lockdown defense for stretches. Both teams had a chance to come away with a win in a one-possession game down the wire.It’s how Syracuse’s matchup with Louisville at the KFC Yum! Center played out a year ago, with the Orange getting the best of the Cardinals in the end. And it’s how SU’s visit back to Kentucky on Saturday went as head coach Jim Boeheim and his team edged No. 1 Louisville 70-68.Though the Orange and UofL didn’t shoot a dismal 34.4 and 34.7 percent from the field as they did in 2012, defense stole the headlines in another heated battle. Louisville’s full-court press and swarming matchup zone gave Syracuse fits all day, but the Orange made a few more plays with the game on the line to take down the favored home team.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe late-game comeback by Syracuse was set up by its trademark 2-3 zone, which stymied the UofL offense and kept the Cardinals out of their press for much of the second half.“All you got to do is pick up the stat sheet and see we shot 29 percent so you don’t get the press on,” Pitino saidThe brutal second-half shooting performance gave Syracuse hope despite trailing for nearly 15 minutes of the final 20. The Orange put together a 9-0 run with more than seven minutes to play to turn a 62-57 deficit into a 66-62 lead just three minutes later.Louisville missed four field goals and three free throws during the run to leave the door open to an Orange comeback. SU made the most of the opportunity, converting two free throws and executing on four straight possessions to take a four-point lead – its largest of the second half.The offensive run – made up of a Michael Carter-Williams drive, 3-pointer and assist to Jerami Grant – was something hardly seen out of SU in the first 33 minutes of action. Carter-Williams had labored up the court with Louisville’s guards harassing him in its well-known full-court press.The pressure defense led to eight turnovers by Carter-Williams and 16 by SU overall. But the press also threw off Syracuse’s offense when it did get into its half-court sets.“We had a hard time not so much breaking the press but being comfortable and actually knowing what to do with the press,” Triche said.With the zone keeping Louisville off the board, Syracuse, and specifically Carter-Williams, finally found a comfort zone offensively.But fittingly, defense was the deciding factor in the final minute with Louisville leading by one. Carter-Williams came up with a steal and took it the length of the court for a two-handed dunk to give SU a 69-68 lead with 23 seconds left.With the game still up for grabs, he then took the ball away from UofL center Gorgui Dieng in the final seconds to seal the win. Just as Dion Waiters did with his steal in the closing seconds of the one-point win a year ago.“Last year, same thing, last play and we stole the ball and we stole it here,” Boeheim said. “Two steals to end the game. Unbelievable.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgTwenty-eight holes under tough conditions Sunday at demanding Riviera Country Club was just too much for Tiger Woods.”I got tired,” he admitted to reporters ( via PGATour.com ) after fading with four bogeys in his last 10 holes at the Genesis Open. Genesis Open: J.B. Holmes edges out Justin Thomas to win 5th PGA Tour event With the temperature in the 40s and wind gusts approaching 30 mph, Woods finished at 6 under, eight shots back of winner J.B. Holmes.”I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I definitely felt it today. Wind, cold. I was at 10 (under) and I slipped four shots coming in. That’s the way it goes,” he said. Related News His 2019 schedule has been a topic of some speculation. He said last year’s bounce-back PGA Tour season, that also included the Ryder Cup, left him too tired by year’s end. His fade in tough conditions this weekend reinforces the point that at 43 he has to pick his spots judiciously, likely with an eye toward the majors.After playing in Mexico, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he opted to sit out the next week at his hometown Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.After that there are few opportunities for time off ahead of the Masters: After the Honda, there’s the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill (one of Woods’ favorite events because of its legendary namesake), followed by The Players Championship, the Valspar Championship (at Innisbrook’s Copperhead course, a good shot-making test ahead of Augusta) and the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship with the 2019 Masters two weeks after that (April 11-14) as the first major of the year. Suffice it to say he wasn’t the only one. Justin Thomas, the tournament leader for most of the way, shot a 75. Adam Scott carded a 76 and Jordan Spieth finished with an 81 to cap a tournament that battled the elements from Thursday on.“The weather, the long days and just the temperature, trying to be focused for long, long periods of time, it took a toll on a lot of us out there today,” Woods said.Woods said he planned to take Monday off (“The sticks aren’t coming out of the travel bag,” he joked in a post-round standup) and won’t start trying to prepare until Tuesday for his trip this week to the WGC-Mexico Championship in the high altitude of Mexico City.That pre-Mexico prep will revolve around the flat stick.“Eventually I made a few bad swings, but to be honest with you, it was one of the worst weeks I’ve ever had on the greens,” Woods said of his play at Riviera.“I made a few in spurts, but I didn’t really have the pace right and I was struggling with the lines early in the week. Finally got it together a little bit, but still, I made too many mistakes on the greens.“Six three putts, I don’t think I’ve ever done that. I just have to clean up my mess on the greens and be ready for Thursday.”Woods is qualified to play in the WGC event because he finished among the top 30 in last season’s FedEx Cup standings.last_img read more
