The City of Rab and the Tourist Board of the City of Rab, in cooperation with the Institute of Public Health of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, provided tourists from the area of the town of Rab with a 50% discount (349,11 kuna) for PCR test on COVID – 19 in September and October. “The announcements for this season were modest, but we managed to surpass them. The city of Rab is a responsible and safe destination and we want to show how it is possible to continue this season. Aware that the cost of the Covid-19 test is a significant expense for tourists or renters, we believe that this discount will mean a lot to them. We were helped in this by the Teaching Institute for Public Health of PGC, headed by the director prof. dr. sc. Vladimir Mićović and the Rab Branch Office headed by the head mr. sc. Daniel Glažar-Ivče “, said the director of the Rab Tourist Board, Ivana Matušan, and added that they managed to maintain the tourist season in a 65 percent volume of overnight stays compared to last year. Also, the discount is valid for all persons who stay in the area of the town of Rab for a minimum of 7 nights continuously in private accommodation, as well as for all reservations for September and October, regardless of when they are made. The discount is intended for all tourists who need the result of the PCR test on COVID – 19 for unhindered entry into the home country, and is valid for all arrivals in September and October 2020 (from September 1 to October 31, 2020) When performing testing, the person who pays for the test (tourist or landlord) is obliged to present a certificate from eVisitor on the residence of the person being tested, which the landlord can print out from the eVisitor system or request at the Rab Tourist Board office. Tourists can do the testing, through the drive-in method of collecting swabs, in the Health Center of the city of Rab every working day from 8 am to 11 am.
London, United Kingdom | AFP | Fousseni Diabate scored twice on his Leicester City debut as the Foxes cruised to a 5-1 win at Peterborough United in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday.Any hopes third-tier Peterborough might create an upset lasted all of nine minutes, with Diabate’s opening goal followed by two more from Kelechi Iheanacho that gave the Foxes a 3-0 lead at half-time. Hughes scored from a corner as Leicester conceded their first goal of 2018 but that was merely a blip, Diabate making it 4-1 before Ndidi scored with the last kick of the match.Peterborough may have bowed out, but several lower league clubs remain involved in the tournament. Peterborough’s Andrew Hughes pulled one back in the 58th minute but it was no more than a consolation.Diabate, who arrived at the King Power Stadium from French Ligue 2 club Gazelec Ajaccio earlier this month, scored his second and Leicester’s fourth in the 87th minute before Wilfred Ndidi made it 5-1 in stoppage-time.But for the debutant’s star showing, Nigeria international Iheanacho would have taken the headlines.“It’s a lovely competition to play in. It was a good team performance,” Iheanacho told BT Sport.“I have been waiting for an opportunity to take my chance and this was it.”Iheanacho and Diabate combined to break the deadlock, the former’s pass allowing the 22-year-old to run into the box before finishing with his left foot.Former Manchester City striker Iheanacho curled in Leicester’s second and made it 3-0 when he volleyed home a Christian Fuchs cross. They include fourth-tier Newport County, who will hope the ‘Magic of the FA Cup’ comes to Rodney Parade when they welcome eight-times winners Tottenham Hotspur to south Wales later on Saturday.Meanwhile Liverpool will look to reach the last 16 at the expense of West Bromwich Albion in an all-Premier League clash at Anfield with Southampton and Watford meeting at St Mary’s.Chelsea face Newcastle in another all-Premier League clash on Sunday when league leaders Manchester City continue their bid for an unprecedented ‘quadruple’ of major trophies (Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League) away to second-tier Cardiff.Share on: WhatsApp
15 Aug 2016 Gold for Rose Ð and a new generation of golfers is set to flower England Golf ambassador Justin Rose is set to inspire a new generation of players after winning the first Olympic gold for golf since the sport’s return to the Games after 112 years. The Englishman said after his two-stroke triumph at Rio 2016: “I am proud to be able to say that felt better than anything I’ve ever won. “I hope my win and the Olympics inspires people to get into golf, it truly is a sport for everyone, whatever your age or ability. “Back at home England Golf, who supported me as I developed as a golfer, are working with clubs to encourage participation with beginner courses, taster lessons and special events and break down perceived barriers to playing,” added Rose. Golf is already England’s fifth biggest participation sport, with just over 1.1 million adults playing at least once a month – and it’s set to grow rapidly after Rose’s Olympic triumph. England Golf’s Get into golf campaign – which is supported by Sky Sports – offers new and returning players an ideal way into the game with great value coaching from PGA professionals and an introduction to a sport which offers a good social life and many health benefits. Just playing 9-holes of golf means players will walk two to three miles, take over 5000 steps and burn over 450 calories. Rose says: “Golf is a great game for people looking to keep fit, as you don’t need to be an elite athlete to play. It is a game for everyone, of all ages or levels of fitness. It gets you out in the fresh air and doing some gentle, but effective exercise and can only help people looking to get or keep fit.” England Golf Chief Executive Nick Pink added: “Justin’s wonderful win is a fantastic result both for him and for golf. I am certain it will inspire thousands of people to set out to follow in his footsteps and enjoy the great game of golf – and we are ready to help guide them on their way.” He went on: “Everyone can play golf, there are no age limits and your ability doesn’t matter – golf has a handicapping system which irons out the differences between players and means everyone can play with each other. “Golf clubs and driving ranges everywhere are working incredibly hard to attract people to the game and all it has to offer. It’s an excellent game to play with family and friends because there’s plenty of time for conversation on the course and a really good social life in the clubhouse “But there are many myths around golf that we have to debunk. For example, people tell you that it takes all day to play. Nonsense! You can play 9 holes in 2 hours or whizz round a par 3 course in the same time. If you’re really strapped for time you can work well on your game in half an hour at the driving range or on the putting green.” The Golf Express campaign promotes 9-hole golf to encourage busy people to play all the game in half the time. It recognises the paces of modern life and offers 9 hole formats that most golfers can conveniently fit into a busy schedule Rose often plays 9 holes in practice and describes Golf Express as: “A great way to play all the game in half the time.” As an amateur Rose was an England international and a top boy player, winning the U16 and U18 McGregor and Carris Trophies. He turned professional after the 1998 Open championship when he holed from the rough on the last to tie fourth and, in a stellar career, has won the US Open and, now, his Olympic gold. He says: “I’m hoping that a great tournament in Rio will encourage kids all over the country go to their local club or range and start swinging a club. Golf is a game for everyone and I think that the Olympics will help make that point by getting more and more people playing.” Visit www.getintogolf.org to find out about beginner courses, taster lessons and special events at clubs and ranges nationwide.
