9) wear umbrellas and identification signs so that guests in the group can more easily visually follow the direction of their guide who will make sure that the groups do not meet or get too close The Association of Croatian Tourist Guides (ZDTVH) sent proposals to the Ministry of Tourism of the Republic of Croatia for work with groups during epidemiological measures. PROPOSALS BY THE COMMUNITY OF CROATIAN TOURIST GUIDE ASSOCIATIONS FOR WORKING WITH GROUPS DURING EPIDEMIOLOGICAL MEASURES: 4) carry hand sanitizer with you 10) define the direction of movement of groups, distances in the city When entering and guiding indoors (museums, churches, galleries): 1) enter enclosed spaces according to the recommendations, a maximum of 15 or a maximum of 20 persons, in smaller spaces the recommendation is a maximum of 3 persons, considering the recommendations of the CNIPH and the area of the space2) when guiding guests indoors, remind guests not to touch anything with their hands, and when entering Catholic churches, it is recommended to advise guests to move inside the church without touching objects, including holy water if there is one at the entrance. Audio system or microphone: 6) organize the leadership of groups in cities in one direction so that groups do not meet and create crowds, short stays at checkpoints where guests would be welcome to talk When boarding buses, for escort guides:1) disinfect hands,2) do not touch the passengers’ luggage3) the microphone in the bus should be disinfected and not placed too close to the mouth, (what about the sponge on the microphone? Can it be well disinfected) 5) if the group is larger than 30 people divide the group into 2 guides if possible (considering additional costs) 1) explore the possibilities of an audio system that connects to guests’ mobile devices – seemingly one of the cheaper variants2) who can procure let him use a microphone that will allow sufficient distance from the guests 8) enter enclosed spaces only if necessary and requested by the agency, if the entire tour is not done from an open outdoor space 11) pay attention to parking lots for buses, in Pula, Poreč, find an adequate solution and mark the direction of movement of groups Information to guests about the behavior during the tour 2) guides do not shake hands with guests and keep 2 m away from guests. 3) if there is an inquiry for a full day of driving, it is recommended that the tourist guide does not go to the bus but welcomes the group driving to the next destination according to the program in his own car, provided that the guide has a car at that time, or only in the city where the guide stay 7) after leading the groups do not give free time so as not to create crowds at critical points and more than the allowed number of people together – this point should be discussed and see what are the general recommendations of the Civil Headquarters, the Institute of Public Health and Tourism sector. We cite this point as the need to define rules of conduct so that everything previously undertaken is not in vain. ZDTVH points out that they have not elaborated most of the points that would refer to tourist escorts and possible full-day excursions, but how they will make them in cooperation with the profession later. 1) the guides do not use the mouth mask in the open, unless the guides have to use them, then it would be advisable to get a microphone while wearing the mask to avoid excessive strain on the vocal cords due to lack of air under the masks while speaking Recommendation for guides working with individuals:1) provide a card payment system The recommendations were made by colleagues from the Pula Tourist Guides Association, led by a colleague, also a microbiologist, Dr. Lorena Lazarić Stefanović, who specializes in the prevention of nosocomial infections.

Kylie and Paul Adams four the perfect home for both them and their home dogs, Fraser and Clare. Photo: Peter WallisOnce you’ve decided to become a homeowner, the real work starts. How do you ensure you’re able to spot your real estate diamond in the rough?While the internet is a comprehensive source of ‘for sale’ homes, Place West director, Tim Douglas, said some buyers we’re too choosy with their search criteria.Mr Douglas suggested searching more broadly.“Don’t enter in parameters such as minimum or maximum bedrooms,” Mr Douglas said.“Sometimes a three-bed home can easily be a four-bed home with some minor adjustments, especially in a market when there’s not an abundance of stock,” he said.SHOULD BUYERS BE MORE FLEXIBLE?Mr Douglas said some buyers have also written off older listings too quickly.“Don’t filter newest to oldest. A property may have been on the market for a while and just had a price adjustment,” Mr Douglas said.“Constantly search through your list because a property may have been brought down in price, or a change of photos may change your thoughts about a property you previously dismissed. Make sure you are searching to the end of the list too,” he said.SEEK WHAT YOU CANNOT CHANGEPS Property Advisory senior partner, Sue Aspinall, said savvy buyers looked primarily at elements that can’t be changed to find real value.“Rule out all those where the land is not what you want — possibly too small or even too large — and the position, elevation, aspect, not near a road not near a train station etc.” Ms Aspinall said.“You’re better off to buy a good block of land in a great area with a house you can change yourself, within reason,” she said.Ms Aspinall said buyers should take advantage of every available online resource too.“Brisbane City flood maps are easy for anyone to look up in Floodwise, and also PD Online that will tell you zoning in the area, what’s around the property and future uses in the area as well,” she said.Ms Aspinall said school catchment maps and the Dial Before You Dig website were also great sources.“You can get an awful lot of information very quickly, she said.THE INTERNET IS YOUR FRIENDRealestate.com.au executive general manager, Andrew Rechtman, said smart buyers used their market’s rear view mirror to stay informed.“Look at what’s for sale and what’s been sold,” Mr Rechtman said.And there’s nothing like putting your feet on the ground to become an area expert too.“We recommend going to open homes and attend auctions so you can understand what a fair price is for the type of property in your area,” Mr Rechtman said.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus1 day agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market1 day ago“We also recommend talking to agents — they’re the local experts,” he said.Mr Rechtman said while searching keywords such as “renovator” or “pool” might be tempting, you might miss a golden opportunity, so don’t automatically cull with terminology.“We recommend keeping that price range a little wider than you might think in the first instance because you may be closing yourself down to ‘renovators delights’ at the lower end or perhaps something that was that little bit nicer than you were expecting and you could stretch yourself too for the right price,” he said.Mr Rechtman said a livability tool on their company’s site was another way to filter listings.The tool requires users to enter financial information such as their deposit, income and expenses. The site then financially scores every listing specifically for the user as ‘Easy’, ‘Stretched’ or ‘Struggling.’“You can actually see as you look at each property if it’s in your affordable zone,” he said.Finally, Mr Rechtman suggested setting alerts and notifications to cut down on the misses.FOUND IN THE WESTKylie and Paul Adams drew on experience to determine their ‘must have’ items and it led to a 1940s renovated Chelmer home.“It came quite easily from what we had and didn’t have in our previous property. It helped us make a list of what we did want,” Mrs Adams said.The couple didn’t set a budget, and looked solely for their must-haves in the preferred suburbs.They ended up compromising on the double garage but felt it was a minor concession compared to other features.“We wanted four bedrooms for when family visits, two bathrooms, a yard for the dogs and air conditioning,” Mrs Adams said.While happy with their choice, Mrs Adams said they’ll also look beyond the internet next time they’re on the property hunt.“We could have approached some agents to see what they had coming up or had available — I know agents know of properties potentially coming up for sale before they’re listed,” she said.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclair
In-form Jamaica Scorpions and preseason favourites Barbados Pride will meet in the final of the WICB Regional Super50 Tournament at Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua and Barbuda today. In what should be a close duel between the tournament’s two most in-form teams, the encounter, which represents the third time the teams will be meeting this season, is set to get underway at 12:30 p.m. Jamaica time. Barbados, who have so far amassed eight wins and a defeat, which came at the hands of Jamaica, are set to enter the contest as marginal favourites.NEAR PERFECT DISPLAYSThis follows their near-perfect displays in the group stage, which were played in Barbados, and the comfort in which they dispatched another tournament hotshot, Leeward Islands Hurricanes, in Antigua by 110 runs in the semi-finals.However, with Jamaica, not too far behind in terms of efficiency, having recorded seven victories and two defeats all-rounder Jason Holder-captained Pride will have to bring their proverbial ‘A’ game.Captained by spinner Nikita Miller, Jamaica, in their best showing so far, brushed aside the challenge of two-time defending champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Force by a record-breaking 292 runs in their semi-finals, also in Antigua.The victory, which was punctuated with maiden centuries from wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton and batsman Jermaine Blackwood, as well as a solid Man of the Match performance of 95 and five for 36 from all-rounder Rovman Powell, also allowed the Scorpions to post their fifth straight win.”The semi-final victory has lifted the morale of the team as we were getting starts, but no one carried on but in the semi-finals we got two centuries,” cited Walton, whose top score of 117 helped Jamaica post a tournament-high 434 for four against Trinidad.”But the semi-final is history, as we will have to come in the final and start from the first delivery if we are to win.”Champions five seasons ago, Jamaica will be hoping that Walton and American Steven Taylor will again put together another effective opening stand.They equalled the record of 174, set by Chris Gayle and Xavier Marshall during the team’s successful title bid in 2011, as well as laid the foundation for Jamaica to score 256 in their revenge 74 runs win over Barbados.TRICKY RIVALRYThe Pride had earlier eked out a one-wicket win over the Scorpions in the fourth of eight preliminary -round matches.Coached by Robert Samuels, Jamaica will further be hoping for continued solid performances from Blackwood and Powell.In terms of bowling, they are expected to rely on their leading wicket taker, fast bowler Jerome Taylor and leg-spinner Damion Jacobs, who have 16 wickets apiece.Barbados, in the meanwhile, who are determined to return to the winner’s enclosure for the first time in three seasons, will be placing their batting hopes on opener Kraigg Brathwaite, Shai Hope and Jonathan Carter.Brathwaite with 462 runs, including two centuries and three half-centuries, has the second most in the tournament behind Kieron Powell of the Leewards, who has netted three hundreds and two fifties in scoring 513 runs.Off-spinner Ashley Nurse, who leads the tournament with 25 scalps, will spearhead their bowling along with spin partner Sulieman Benn, Holder and Kemar Roach.The final will be televised live on cable television network station ESPN.Regional Super50 titles:Trinidad and Tobago – 12Guyana – 9Jamaica – 8Barbados – 7Leeward Islands – 7Windward Islands – 3
