After a slowdown in April, the OVI index fell 10,9 percent in May from the same month last year. The seasonally adjusted values of the index indicate a decline in demand for labor on a monthly basis, given that compared to the previous month, OVI fell by 6,6 percent, according to the Institute of Economics Zagreb in the new OVI index. “Although given the high GDP growth in the first quarter, we would expect this positive moment to spill over into labor market developments, developments on the demand side in the first two months of the second quarter suggest that the labor market has not yet caught up with overall developments. economic activities ” stand out fromInstitute of Economics Zagreb. “Although these indicators point to a slightly weaker tourist season, it is possible that the decline in labor demand in May is only due to the very high level of labor demand in 2018 or the fact that employers have already filled vacancies for the upcoming tourist season.” conclude experts from the Institute of Economics Zagreb. And the responsibility for the decline in demand for labor in May, according to the authors should primarily be sought in the tourism sector. In the first five months of this year, the index rose by only 0,9 percent compared to the same period in 2018, which further indicates a slowdown in the trend of strong growth in labor demand in the Croatian labor market. Namely, although salesman, waiter, chef, driver and storekeeper were still among the five most sought-after occupations, the demand for waiters and chefs fell by more than 25 percent compared to May 2018, while in the first five months of 2019 the demand for waiters and chefs fell by more than 10 percent over the same period last year. In the overall year-on-year decline of the index in May 2019 in the amount of -10,9 percent, the largest negative contribution was made by the professions of waiters and chefs – in the amount of -2,4 and -2,1 percentage points, while in the modest growth of the index in the first five months in the amount of 0,9 percent of the profession of waiters and chefs participated with negative -0,9 and -1,6 percentage points. “Here, however, it should be said that, in contrast to May, when the demand for hoteliers / caterers (hotel staff, receptionists, managers, etc.) decreased by slightly more than 10 percent, in the first five months of 2019 the number of job advertisements hoteliers / caterers increased by slightly more than 14 percent (contributing to the year-on-year growth of 0,4 percentage points) ”pointed out from the Institute of Economics Zagreb.In addition, the decline in demand for labor in May on an annual basis is almost entirely responsible for the regions of the northern and southern Adriatic, where the number of published ads fell by more than 25 percent compared to the same period last year. That is, in the overall decline of the index in May, the southern Adriatic participated with -5,1 percentage points, and the northern Adriatic with -4,6 percentage points, while the year-on-year growth of the index in the first five months of 2019 amounted to 0,9 percent the southern Adriatic participated with -0,9 percentage points, and the northern Adriatic with -1,1 percentage points.

I would be open for anyone.”Speaking about his toned new look, Tyson added: “I am just having fun looking good, showing off my new body, anything is possible.“My ego is starting to get elated, but we will see.

Press Association Fathuaer, seeking his first ever win, signed a blemish-free scorecard to go to 16 under overall, putting him one shot ahead of Jason Bohn, who is two shots clear of a four-way tie for third. Fathuaer has never gone into a final round inside the top 10 before, and said he would endeavour not to change his approach. Derek Fathauer will go into the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a one-shot lead after a second consecutive round of 66 on Saturday. “The scores that this course puts up, I don’t think it matters being in the lead out here,” Fathauer said on the PGA Tour website. “I mean, if I had a 10-shot lead, that would be one thing, but one shot, that’s an even playing field tomorrow. “I think if I just go out and do what I came here to do, I’d like to see where it puts me at the end of the day because if I just stick to my plan, I’ll be happy no matter what happens.” Bohn went round in 65, making an eagle on the par-five 13th but then dropping a shot on the 18th that cost him a share of the lead. Still, it was enough to keep him clear of Justin Leonard, Russell Knox, Harold Varner III and Graeme McDowell, who sit at 13 under. McDowell held the overnight lead but instantly hit trouble with a double bogey on the first and a bogey at the second. He rebounded with birdies on the fifth, sixth, 10th and 11th but dropped another shot on the 13th before a birdie on the 17th.

The call came at mid-morning in the middle of a press conference. “We are going to fly; see you at the ATC (air traffic control tower) in about three minutes. “Running to the ATC, crossing security barriers, one sees an old white Qualis approaching.Nine young men are crammed inside – dressed in red flying suits. Quick introductions follow. They all come from their airbase in Bidar in north Karnataka, the home of the IAF Surya Kiran aerobatic team. One of them shares a tablet of chewing gum. The van zips across the tarmac and the Surya Kiran pilots disappear quietly and coolly for the debriefing.About half an hour and several pieces of chocolate cakes from the mess – shared with other pilots waiting to fly – the team emerges. They all wear aviator sunglasses. Many sport that unmistakable swagger of a fighter pilot. They walk slowly to the runway. Wing Commander D. Setia makes a quick mobile phone call, maybe to his home in Delhi. Then they walk in formation as ‘the team’. They all step into the cockpit slowly.Nine out of a dozen Kiran MK II aircraft vroom. There is the smell of aviation fuel. The exhaust blows away one’s cap. What follows is the Surya Kiran show. The first half comprises turns, wingovers, loops and barrel rolls in various full formations.During the second half, the formation breaks into two groups to carry out manoeuvres like splits, level and rolling crosses, inverted runs, the cupid’s heart loop etc.advertisementAero India 2011 (held from February 9 to 13) could have been the last time the team flew in the Kiran aircraft in a major show. Just before they started, the Chief of Air Staff met them and told them about the future. The chief has offered them the Hawk, a transonic aircraft that could cross the speed of sound. Later HAL’s Intermediate Jet Trainer will be their workhorse.”There is a lot of attachment with Kiran; it’s nice beautiful,” said Squadron Leader G. S. Sudan, who flies the Kiran that makes up the cupid’s arrow. ” A new aircraft would mean new displays – more thrilling, captivating shows,” said team leader Wing Commander Prajual Singh, the man who flies at the front of the formation. A faster aircraft would mean a wider turning radius to account for the G- force that pulls the pilot’s body to the ground. ” Still we have to be within the ‘ visual bubble’ ( the spectators’ range of view). It will be a mix of slow manoeuvres and daring fast moves – a heady mix.” Would that mean a lot of changes while formation flying? Sudan has the stock Air Force answer – ” When we fly, we listen only to the command of the leader. His aircraft flies in front and sets the paces – the coordinate of the earth and the sky.”What goes through your mind when you do those manoeuvres sandwiched with a colleague’s aircraft? ” Nothing – we wait for the next command and the move.” Squadron Leader Ramji Yadov, the team’s ‘ spokesman’, explained that the whole show is planned in the minutest detail, well in advance, as if in a war room. Each move is approved at the command level and then at the Air Headquarters.And back in Bidar, the team members practise it again and again till they achieve perfection. “Each performance is photographed for reference – no two shows are the same.” While the induction of the Hawk aircraft might take many months, new teammates will join, as the pilots take three- year turns to be in the team. Only the team leader gets a second term.So what will happen to the Kiran, designed in Bangalore by Dr Gadge, the then- chief designer of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd in 1960? The bird will go for training of fighter pilots, its original role. Then the old ones will end up as showpieces in a school or a museum.

WHITEHORSE – The Montreal woman who was the first female to make a solo ascent of Canada’s highest mountain has recovered some of the expensive gear she had to abandon during her rescue on the climb down.Monique Richard reached the 5,959-metre summit of Mount Logan in Yukon on May 30, but became exhausted and dehydrated during the descent and had to call for a helicopter rescue.She managed to descend to the 5,400-metre level with the help of two other climbers and a helicopter was able to reach her and airlift her to safety.But Richard was forced to leave her pack and equipment, valued at about $10,000, on the mountain.She says a group of climbers who recently passed her abandoned camp picked up her custom-painted helmet and her high-tech one-person shelter and delivered them to Parks Canada, which oversees activities on Mount Logan in Kluane National Park.Parks officials sent them on to Richard, who has no plans for another climb on Mount Logan, so is delighted to have them back.“I’m very happy because they are special things for me,” she says.Richard credits the uniquely painted helmet for saving her life on several occasions and says she will put it and the shelter in a special collection kept at her home.Richard spent the summer climbing in the Montreal area, and says she is now preparing to write a book about her experience on Mount Logan.

Kolkata: Mayor Firhad Hakim directed the Director General (DG) of the Lighting department and DG (Civil) to maintain coordination with CESC, so that there is no revenue loss of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation when it comes to charging them for taking up work on land belonging to the civic body.The matter came up for discussion at the monthly meeting of the KMC on Monday, when Congress councillor Prakash Upadhyay proposed that the KMC would levy hefty charges on CESC for laying cables or fixing light posts for the purpose of electricity connection on KMC land. “The CESC charges a monthly bill of Rs 30 crore from the KMC, which amounts to a whopping Rs 360 crore in a year. But when CESC uses KMC land for their purpose, they do not pay the KMC enough,” Upadhyay said. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellersResponding to his proposal, Hakim said the civic body is bound by some provisions of Indian Telegraph Act 1885 and Electricity Act 2003, under which it levies charges on the power utility. “The concerned officials should remain alert and ensure that charges are levied upon CESC as per provisions of the two Acts,” he maintained. The Mayor instructed the DG of the Lighting department and DG (Civil) to address the issue in a proper manner and maintain liaison with CESC to prevent any revenue loss for the civic body in this connection.
