Are we ready to follow the trends that the world has known for years and do investors go to neighboring countries to realize their ideas? The results achieved in these countries indicate that the private and public sectors have achieved great success and direct investment that has provided them with direct revenues to the state budget, but also encouraged the development of the private sector with fresh capital and new ideas. I am of the opinion that if we want to keep up with the competition and encourage investment in the future, we must respond to market demands as soon as possible so as not to add up their successful results and analyze what needs to change in us. Is Croatia ready for such a challenge and is there the political will to introduce such measures? How to attract foreign investment, achieve an increase in economic activity and maintain the value of the real estate market in the future is one of the main issues these days. The Golden Visa program is well known in the business world and has been applied for several years by other EU members such as Austria, Portugal and Greece, and was recently introduced by neighboring Montenegro. The program allows attracting foreign direct investment and increasing overall economic activity in the country. LOUD THINKING / Author: Marko Pažanin, Croatia Sotheby’s International Realty
Qatar Airways has said it will not take any new aircraft in 2020 or 2021, deferring orders with Boeing and Airbus as demand diminishes amid the coronavirus crisis.The Gulf airline, which flew to more than 170 destinations with 234 aircraft as of March, has been hit by airport closures and travel bans imposed to contain the spread of COVID-19.The International Air Transport Association warned in April that air traffic in the Middle East and North Africa would plummet by more than half this year. “Quite a lot of (deliveries) will be deferred,” Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar al-Baker told Britain’s Sky News on Wednesday.”We have already notified both Boeing and Airbus that we will not be taking any aeroplanes this year or next year.”And all the other aircraft that we have on order, that were supposed to be delivered to us within the next two or three years, will now be pushed back to as long as nearly eight to 10 years.”If traffic increased to levels above expectation, the delayed aircraft could be brought forward, he said.The airline says it is currently serving around 40 key destinations.It has previously warned staff that they face redundancies and salary reductions as it attempts to defy the headwinds of the global aviation downturn.Qatar Airways was already battling financial turbulence, having posted a $639 million loss for the year to March 2019.Topics :

Photo credit: Jason Hunter.Celebrate 35 years with the Mud Bay Jugglers! On November 14th at 7:00 pm the internationally acclaimed Mud Bay Jugglers will present their 35th anniversary show at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts. “Thirty-five years is a big milestone for us, a milestone we would like to share with our community, friends and family here in our hometown,” says Doug Martin co-founder of the collaborative performing arts company. “Most of the time we are on the road from Alberta to Ohio and everywhere in between, but our anniversary show is for Olympia.”This special show promises exceptional juggling, music, physical comedy and a touch of sentiment. “Our show is definitely for all ages, no need to be a child or have a child with you to enjoy it, we all bring our inner child with us,” says Alan Fitzthum, second longest standing member of the company. “I can’t believe that it’s been 35 years, it just proves the old adage that time flies when you’re having fun.”“What really excites me about this production is that we are coming together in collaboration with others both onstage and off, ” says Doug. “My son, Amiel, will be joining us on stage with his two juggling partners, Jules and River. They will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary as the Juggling Jollies. Also joining us will be the Tune Stranglers blending music with action to create a visual and sound collage pleasing and entertaining at every beat.”Thirty-five years ago, two bearded young friends began experimenting with gravity. These unabashed and exuberant risk takers were soon entertaining and amazing audiences. Their joy and humor compelled another to join, and the collaboration expanded. Taking their name from Olympia’s magical Mud Bay, they traveled the continent, performing thousands of shows at festivals, colleges, and theaters. They developed a unique performance style that combined impossible looking juggling with precise choreography, physical comedy, and theatrical flourishes.Harry Levine (left), Alan Fitzthum (center), and Doug Martin (right) juggle fire during the finale of The Mud Bay Jugglers’ 30th Anniversary show in 2010. Photo courtesy: Mud Bay Jugglers.Like fine wine (and facial hair) their show has grown richer and fuller over the years. The beneficiary organization for this event is Olympia Family Theater, a nonprofit organization founded in 2006 that engages audiences of all ages in performances and programs that entertain and educate. Olympia Family Theater is your community partner in raising imaginative, loving, joyful and confident children. Their educational programs provide opportunities for personal development for young people, teaching creativity and responsibility, encouraging teamwork and personal integrity, and fostering self-esteem and appreciation for the performing arts.The last Mud Bay Jugglers show in Olympia was five years ago and was a benefit for Encore Arts. “That show pretty much sold out and we were happy that we could raise some funds for Encore Arts and have great fun at the same time!” says Doug.

By Jay Cook |HOLMDEL – The largest health care system in Monmouth County is reviving nearly 20-year-old plans for two new facilities on currently vacant land on Route 35.Dubbed “The Villas,” Meridian Quality Care will present the Holmdel Planning Board with blueprints for an assisted living facility and a skilled nursing facility within the next two to three months.The property at 200-300 Commons Way is north of Holmdel Commons shopping center, on about 10 acres of undeveloped land. The closest business is Holmdel Imaging, 100 Commons Way.One lot is envisioned as home to a 35,355-square-foot assisted living facility with 110 beds, for residents in their late 70s to early 80s. It would stand four-stories tall and cost $30 million. A generator to service the building, and parking, lighting and landscape improvements are planned for the property.The facility would offer an approximately 2,500-square-foot full-service spa, a movie theater, bistro, coffee shop, exercise room, great room and computer room. The apartments would boast 9-foot-high ceilings and the common areas would feature marble floors and crown moldings.“You won’t find an assisted living facility in New Jersey that has all the things we’re offering,” said Stephen Baker, president of Meridian Quality Care. “This will be state-of-the-art, and we want it to be.”With a timely approval from the planning board, Baker anticipated construction could begin near the end of 2017, and the building could open in early 2019. Once the assisted living facility is complete, Meridian Quality Care would begin construction on the skilled nursing facility, the cost of which has not been determined.The three-story, 31,000-square-foot building would have 130 beds and a 1,680-square-foot maintenance garage, as well as site improvements. This facility would serve residents in their late 80s and early 90s, and include a post-surgery rehabilitation center as well.Meridian first received planning board approval for the project in 1999, Baker said. In 2010, the company returned to the board for approval for relocation of the buildings on the land, along with other general modifications and local code upgrades. They received extensions in 2012 and 2013. Moving into the northern Monmouth County corridor was important for the company, Baker said, because he believes that current market, stretching from Matawan down to the Navesink River, is lacking in assisted living options. “That area is significantly worn and aged in the sense of facilities,” he said.He said his proposed facility would be like comparing “a Motel 6 versus a Ritz Carlton.”The company’s closest Meridian facility is located in Shrewsbury. Meridian Nursing and Rehab at Shrewsbury, a skilled nursing facility, was built in 2008.Baker said having such an active community is important for the future residents. Amenities like a great room or a movie theatre allow for social interaction.“It gives them socialization, just like we all get through social media and school,” Baker said about the residents. “They’ll see other people their age and be able to interact with them.”The land for the proposed complex was once home to the Lily Tulip plant, a million-square-foot facility that manufactured paper cups, predominantly Dixie-brand items. The plant was active for about 40 years, then closed in 1990, according to the New Jersey Office of State Planning.In addition to the large shopping center nearby, two 55-and-older adult communities are found within a one-mile radius – Cedar Village and Village Grande.This article was first published in the May 4-11, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.
Twitter has acquired the team at question-and-answer site Fluther. According to both companies, the Fluther site will remain in tact, though not in development, as the four developers and one designer that form Fluther’s core team move over to Twitter.Over recent months, Twitter has often repeated that it is more than just a site for those who want to produce content, it is a destination for content consumption. This acquisition could do well to move Twitter further in this direction and help to rise appropriate content to the top of users’ streams.As Twitter says in its announcement, this is a primary goal of the acquisition, which focuses on talent and not product:During our conversations with Fluther’s team, we were continually impressed by their technical talent, entrepreneurial spirit, and much of the thinking behind the question-and-answer product they’ve spent the last couple of years building. When the Fluther team joins us they will focus on helping users discover the most relevant content on Twitter. Their product, Fluther.com, is not part of the acquisition and will remain separate from Twitter.The members of the Fluther team that will be moving over to Twitter are Ben Finkel, Andrew McClain, Tim Trueman, Richard Henry and Cameron Dutro.Already, Twitter has found some success with recommendation tools that suggest other users to follow. If the same could be done for content, the company might find more mainstream success. If much of Facebook’s value has been in surfacing the best content from across the river of news from friends’ content, Twitter would do well to enable users to more easily discover the best content from across its more-open social graph and site.
