Drake Relays mark special weekend for Minnesota track and field

first_imgWith the event’s hype, Minnesota athletes will have plenty of energy to feed off of, which men’s head coach Steve Plasencia said can cause remarkable performances. While the women’s team only sends distance runners to Des Moines, Iowa, to compete this weekend, the men’s team will send more athletes. Brown said the excitement builds throughout the week, peaking with the high school and college meets. “In a couple weeks, when we go to the Big Ten outdoors, there are going to be times when we struggle,” Plasencia said. “Individuals might struggle this weekend.We have to learn how to pick those individuals up when they struggle. We have a great opportunity in front of us.” “We try and create events that are fun for all ages, regardless of how much they enjoy track and field,” Drake Relays director Brian Brown said. “The student body also plays a crucial role in creating the environment. They look forward to this week the minute that they step on campus.” “It’s really more than just any other track meet,” women’s head coach Matt Bingle said. “The atmosphere that Drake and the Des Moines area create is one of the best in the nation for track and field.” To go along with the environment, the Drake Relays provide the Gophers with some much-needed experience against top competition.  “When you go from running in front of a couple hundred of people to running in front of over 10,000, it can sometimes overwhelm kids,” he said. “But for others, it’s what they need to really do something special.”center_img Drake Relays mark special weekend for Minnesota track and field Grant DonaldApril 23, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintMembers of both women’s and men’s Minnesota track teams will make the brief trip south to Iowa this Friday to take part in the annual Drake Relays —  a meet that has become a highlight of the Gophers’ outdoor season. Even though the women’s team has multiple meets between this weekend and Big Ten outdoor championships in May, only one will be against mostly Division I competition. However, the event is more than just the meet that will occur Friday and Saturday. Drake Relays festivities began last Sunday with a bulldog beauty contest and have continued throughout the week. At last year’s meet, more than 14,000 people flooded Drake Stadium to watch the final day of competition. “We always set this weekend as a checkpoint during our season,” Bingle said. “We want to see those distances and times to be nearing the marks that it will take to place in Big Ten [championships].” Therefore, Plasencia said the experience has more of a championship feel.last_img read more

Presentation of the project of sustainable management and responsible distribution of the number of visitors to Skradinski buk

first_imgBreathtaking natural beauties, the roar of water overflowing over seven magnificent travertine waterfalls and the rich cultural and historical heritage, which evokes the spirit of past times, are the values ​​with which generations grow up along Krk. But without awareness of the preservation of our natural heritage and the sustainable development of tourism, we can destroy our natural resources in the long run.With this motive and goal, in order to preserve the millennial heritage, the Public Institution “Krka National Park” this year started making new business decisions within the project of responsible management and safety of visitors in order to relieve the most famous and most visited site, Skradinski Buk. “National and nature parks are one of our strongest brands, as evidenced by the fact that they were visited by over 3,5 million visitors last year. July and August are the months with the greatest pressure, so it is important that the most visited parks take measures to relieve the most attractive locations, which is now the first thing the Krka National Park has done. The Ministry supports projects of effective visitor management at the national level, both financially and professionally. Since about ten days ago, visitors have the opportunity to buy a ticket to the parks and online. This is another mechanism for better visitor management. With the support of the Ministry, our parks have applied for EU co-financing of 20 visitor infrastructure improvement projects worth around HRK 770 million, which are now undergoing the approval phase. Better visitor infrastructure will facilitate access to parks but also facilitate their effective protection. Therefore, these projects are currently one of our priorities. ” – pointed out Dr. sc. Mario Šiljeg, State Secretary at the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy, emphasized that all these activities will contribute to raising the level of quality of visitor management and further development of the areas where the parks are located.Krka National Park is an important economic entity that, in addition to protecting natural beauties and rich cultural and historical heritage, actively participates in strengthening the local community and positioning Šibenik-Knin County as a brand. The Krka National Park brand is recognized worldwide as an unavoidable destination for visitors to the Republic of Croatia and is also its first protected area to implement active measures to limit the number of visitors in order to preserve the recognizable heritage of the wider area along the Krka. “Šibenik-Knin County fully supports all activities of the National Park “Krka”, and related to the limited visit to Skradinski Buk, because the sustainable development of this area is an absolute priority. It is in these activities that we see the challenge of the tourist development of the wider area of ​​the Krka National Park, as well as the entire Šibenik-Knin County. I am pleased to point out the exceptional cooperation with the Krka National Park and once again congratulate you on the successfully applied project “Unknown Krka”, the implementation of which will certainly encourage the development of the rural part of our county.”, Said Goran Pauk, prefect of Šibenik-Knin County.In order to protect the fundamental phenomenon of the Park, increase the safety of visitors and reduce crowds, and to provide each visitor with a complete experience in protected nature, several phases of the project were realized. The main road to Skradinski Buk and the branch office of the Public Institution “NP Krka” in Skradin have been arranged, in which there are now eight points of sale instead of the previous three, and the movement in it is one-way due to efficient service provision. Furthermore, from this summer, visitors will be able to access the boat in Skradin only with a purchased ticket for the Krka National Park, which will reduce the queue for boarding the ship and leave visitors more time to tour the sights in the city of Skradin. “In the year in which we mark the 32nd anniversary of the proclamation of the Krka National Park and the city after which the fundamental phenomenon of the Park is named, we are part of a truly important moment in its institutional history. Founded with the aim of protecting the values ​​created by the symbiosis of nature and man, NP “Krka” for 32 years justifies the role of guardian of our heritage, the heritage we inherited and which we are obliged to leave to those who come after us. And it is through this project, the project of protection of the fundamental phenomenon of the Park, that we are fulfilling the order of civilization that was placed before this institution thirty-two years ago. Providing visitors with more quality time for sightseeing in the city of Skradin makes a strong contribution to the economy of the city, which sees tourism as its most significant potential and strategic direction.”, Emphasized mr. sc. Antonijo Brajković, Mayor of the City of Skradin.This summer, the number of visitors to Skradinski Buk will be limited. Visitors to Lozovac and Skradin will have access to displays showing the available number of tickets for Skradinski buk. Those visitors who will not be able to enter Skradinski buk at a certain moment will be offered alternative directions, ie programs for visiting sites on the middle and upper course of the Krka. “Visitors will be able to spend time waiting to enter Skradinski buk visiting educational hiking trails and lookouts on the middle course of the Krka, will be able to enjoy the sacred heritage that Krka nurtures, discover monuments that testify to the turbulent past of this area, discover undiscovered parts of Krka in one of the many rural households that offer a rich selection of traditionally prepared and organically grown local products. This year’s novelty is also on line reservation and sale of tickets for NP “Krka” via web shop Parks of Croatia so that visitors can plan their arrival in the Park on time and with quality”, Concluded mr. sc. Krešimir Šakić, director of the Public Institution “Krka National Park”.As of this year, the movement of visitors along Skradinski Buk has been one-way. Upon arrival at the site, visitors will be able to get acquainted with the direction of the tour on a map of the area, and there are signposts that will make it easier for visitors to move. Tour direction (Walk this way) is especially prominent and there are signs prohibiting movement for visitors who would head in the opposite direction.Finally, with additional promotional activities, visitors will be invited to plan their arrival time and book tickets for the Krka National Park. One of the promotional tools for this purpose is a short video which you can watch below attached.last_img read more

Pom United face uphill battle in NSL southern conference

first_imgSoccer BY KEVIN TEME The NCDC Port Moresby United Football Club has a steep hill to climb when they face MRDC Hekari United Football Club in this weekend’s match at the Sir John Guise Stadium. The nation’s capital flagship in the Kumul Petroleum Holding National Soccer League southern conferenc, Pom United FC has gambled in their last defeat however that cannot be repeated against Hekari United FC. Hekari United are clear leaders and they will certainly aim to maintain their winning form despite knowing pretty well that a loss will not change their current standing as the Jerry Allen-coached side makes a come back into the NSL fold after years of absence. Hekari’s assistant coach Erickson Komeng said: “Our aim for the club is to make it back to the Oceania Football Confederation challenge and that’s our ultimate goal.” “Every game we play is our grand final and we’ve taken that on board and we looking forward to every challenge that is ahead of us,” Komeng said. Komeng said nothing is easy as for HUFC, there is their motto of ‘No Pain’ No Gain’ something they’ve always looked up to and worked so hard to get where they want to be. It may sound tough but Port Moresby United Football club can give the men in red a good run for their money and certainly they will do step up in this game to keep their top two spots alive. POMUFC gave a good run in the first round and this weekend’s rematch will be an interesting one to watch as coach Francis Moiyap (pictured) makes his last attempt to cement the second spot for a chance to make the knockouts. In the other interesting game also will be between Central United and Eastern Stars. It is expected that Stars and Central FC fans will be coming in numbers to support their team with the match kicking off straight after the FC Bougainville and Star Mountain FC match. The main game on the draw will be PRK Gulf Komara taking on Southern Strikers. Meanwhile, in the KPHL Niugini Islands challenge, it will be double header at the Ceremonial Park when FC Radaz takes on Gazelle FC while Cebu AROB takes on West Tribe. It is believed the top two teams will go to the next elimination level in the respective conferences where the Highlands take on the Momase (Northern) and the Southern take face off with Niugini Islands.last_img read more

Terry Crews settles sexual assault lawsuit against the William Morris agency

first_imgABC/Paula Lobo(LOS ANGELES) — Terry Crews has settled his sexual assault lawsuit against the Williams Morris Endeavor agency, and the agent he accused, Adam Venit, is reportedly retiring.“Terry Crews, Adam Venit and WME have settled the lawsuit Mr. Crews filed last year. It will be dismissed,” the agency said in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter. No terms were announced. Deadline reports Venit is retiring Monday.The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star tweeted the word “Accountability” as he posted a link to the news.Crews named Venit as the person who assaulted him at a party Adam Sandler hosted at Hutchinson’s Restaurant in West Hollywood on February 4, 2016. “Venit, upon his first meeting Crews, viciously grabbed Crews’ penis and testicles so hard that it caused Crews immediate pain in a blatant and unprovoked sexual assault,” Crews’ attorney, Bryan Sullivan, wrote in the complaint.“Crews smacked Venit’s hand away and shoved him back more forcefully than before, screaming ‘Hey! What are you doing?!’ two or three times, but Venit ignored everything Crews was saying and continued to try to grab Crews’ genitals,” Sullivan continued. “Crews kept Venit at arm’s length and turned to Sandler to get his attention, yelling, ‘Adam, come get your boy! He’s grabbing my nuts!’”Crews sued for assault, battery, sexual battery, sexual harassment, gender violence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and negligent retention and supervision.  His suit alleged that he told his agent at the time — another WME employee, Brad Slater — of the incident but that the company took no action. Crews eventually fired his agent and left the agency in November 2017.   The actor, who appeared this year in the hit Deadpool 2, is set to star in the upcoming drama John Henry featuring Ludacris.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
