Šibenik sweet bagatin as a new souvenir of the city of Šibenik

admin no comments

first_imgŠibenik was the first city to mint its own money during the Venetian period. As determined by the decree on minting, on one side of the coin was the figure of St. Mark, the patron saint of Venice, and on the other hand the figure of St. Mihovil, patron saint of the city of Šibenik. Immediately after Šibenik, Split, Zadar, Trogir and Hvar began to forge their bagatine. The project was created in cooperation between the School of Tourism and Hospitality and the Technical School, which is funded by the Ministry of Tourism through a program of promotion and strengthening the competence of professional professions for tourism. The idea was to design the Šibenik bagatin as a delicacy and as a souvenir, which succeeded in the form of chocolate coins.

Certainly an interesting fact, which has become a new Šibenik sweet souvenir as part of the Šibenik Bagatin project. The holder of the project is the School of Tourism and Catering, and the Museum of the City of Šibenik plans to use this delicacy as a sales souvenir. Photo: City of Šibeniklast_img read more

first_imgBLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Jan. 22) – The 2015 season will be the first for IMCA and RaceSaver at a track with an already long and distinguished Sprint Car history. Bloomington Speedway features the IMCA Eagle Motor Sports RaceSaver Sprint Car division on Friday programs beginning April 17. IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Allstar Performance State and local track points will be awarded through season championship night on Aug. 21. Weekly features will pay $600 to win and a minimum of $150 to start.“I like the total package of IMCA and RaceSaver,” explained third-year General Manager Kris Kirchner. “I come from the 410 (sprint car) world and know that people who want to get into that have to spend a lot of money.”“I’ve heard more and more about RaceSaver and know that a guy can get into the class, race and not be broke at the end of the day,” he added.Dan Roberts, a co-owner of the ¼-mile, high-banked clay oval located in south central Indiana, suggested track officials look into RaceSaver.“The RaceSaver engine package is much more affordable for the average person. The equation of the person driving the car is more important than how much money they spent,” Kirchner said. “Everything I’ve learned about RaceSaver is that the cars are affordable and reliable.” Bloomington hosted its first auto races in 1923 and now boasts grandstand seating for 3,500.IMCA last sanctioned a Sprint Car event in Indiana in the early 1970s.“Bloomington Speedway is a top-notch facility and a perfect weekly home for IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars,” said Jim Stannard, director of track relations for IMCA. “We look forward to partnering with Bloomington and helping this division grow.”last_img read more

Clippers’ Austin Rivers hopes to provide energy in return

admin no comments

first_imgAustin Rivers acknowledged feeling heartbroken for Griffin when he found out about his teammate’s toe injury.“It’s hard to be mad or feel bad that I missed two or three weeks when I got my teammate Blake over here out 4 to 6 months,” Austin Rivers said. “That’s a real injury. Not to say mine’s not. But stuff like that puts everything in perspective.”Griffin is expected to have surgery on his right toe after meeting with a doctor on Tuesday. But he will be reevaluated at least two more times before making a definitive decision.“There’s no determination yet,” Doc Rivers said of Griffin’s likely surgery. “He’s had one (doctor’s visit), but he has to have several more. We’re not going to say anything until everything’s done.”Doc Rivers was more expansive on how his players reacted to Griffin’s injury.“You can feel the sting when they found out the news. They were bothered. They were hurt. I think they were more emotional than I had seen them,” Doc Rivers said. “It was more toward Blake, more feeling bad for him than even the team, which I thought was a really good thing for our group.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> Clippers guard Austin Rivers looked anxious as he laced up his shoes Tuesday night. He was about to warm up for Game 5 against the Utah Jazz at Staples Center, and he acknowledged feeling impatient in his first game since a left hamstring injury sidelined him for the previous 11 games.“I just want to have an impact, play hard and bring energy,” Rivers said beforehand. “All the things will come and lead to that. I’ve tried not to make it bigger than what it is.”Rivers, who averaged 12 points per game this season, acknowledged he “wanted to play last week,” but he was confined then to running drills. The Clippers cleared him after he spent the past four days completing a series of workouts. The Clippers welcomed Rivers’ return, and Jazz coach Quin Snyder called him a “unique player” before praising his 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame, quickness, ball handling and ability to finish.Clippers coach Doc Rivers still sounded unsure, though, what his son could provide on a playing time restriction off the bench that would exceed 12 minutes.center_img “I don’t know what Austin’s going to do honestly. He hasn’t played,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “I don’t expect a lot. I’m hoping for a lot, but you don’t just miss games and show up and start playing. we need another body. That’s what he’s going to do for us.”Austin Rivers returned shortly after the Clippers ruled forward Blake Griffin out for the rest of the playoffs after injuring his right toe in Game 3. Doc Rivers also welcomed his son’s return because of his ability to attack the basket.With Austin not playing since March 29, he predicted he would feel “winded” before noting he worked out in Salt Lake City, where the altitude is higher. But Austin added he did not feel he needed to pace himself.“I don’t know any other way. If i try to be someone else, I’m not going to be effective,” Austin Rivers said. “I would never play just to play. I would only play if I knew i could give it my best and play hard.”What up, Doc?last_img read more

Lakers get close but that’s it in loss to Grizzlies

admin no comments

first_imgThough Bryant nearly collected his second triple-double of the week with 15 points on 6-of-14 shooting, nine rebounds and eight assists in 33 minutes, the Lakers’ star showed a mixed result in late-game baskets. He missed a 13-foot jumper as the Lakers trailed 102-100 left with 1:47 left. Yet, Bryant also hit a 26-foot 3-pointer that cut the deficit to 106-105 with 24 seconds.Lakers coach Byron Scott has admired the Memphis Grizzlies from afar on how they have become an elite defensive team predicated on gritty play. But as they have done all season, the Lakers (10-23) hardly came close in showing that identity.After holding Memphis (24-8) to a 37.5-percent clip in the first quarter, the Lakers yielded double-digit performances to Mike Conley (19 points), Marc Gasol (18 points), Beno Udrih (16 points), Courtney Lee (14 points) and Prince (12). The Grizzlies also posted 48 points in the paint and outrebounded the Lakers 46-38.“I don’t necessarily think you need five great individual defenders,” Scott said beforehand. “You just need five great guys who are understanding the principles and do it on a consistent night to night basis.”How do the Lakers do that? The drama and unexpected twists traveled with the Lakers in nearly every step they took.But no matter what sort of identity the Lakers showed, they still found a way to lose.The Lakers’ 109-106 defeat to the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday at Staples Center became official once Kobe Bryant’s turnaround 3-point shot hit off the back rim with 0.6 seconds left. But so many other sequences set up that ending.Lakers forward Ed Davis came through with a season-high 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting and eight rebounds despite wearing a plastic mask to protect his broken nose. But Davis failed to tie the score on a pair of free throws. He made one of two attempts, his second one rimming out as the Grizzlies enjoyed a 102-101 edge with 2.1 seconds left. Moments earlier, plenty of fans at Staples Center expressed disappointment that Tayshaun Prince’s above-the-shoulder foul on Davis wasn’t called as a flagrant foul type 2. “Finding guys that have killer instincts,” Scott said. “That’s another conversation.”That negated some otherwise positive developments.Lakers guard Jeremy Lin posted 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting, five assists and three steals after spending all season mired in inconsistency and discomfort. Lakers forward Carlos Boozer helped anchor the second unit with 14 points before fouling out with 5:10 remaining. Nick Young complemented his new afro with 14 points, including a 3-pointer and a layup that put the Lakers up 97-96 with 4:17 left.But then the Lakers allowed Memphis to score 13 points in that final stretch, exposing a defensive weakness that becomes more problematic than of the Lakers’ offensive growth they have enjoyed in recent days.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
