first_imgApple has asked iOS developers to provide details about the user data their apps and app updates collect. Apple had first announced this mandatory requirement during the iOS 14 unveil at WWDC earlier this year. The developers will have to offer information on the type of data it collects and App Store listings will label this information to help users understand an app’s privacy practices before they download it on any Apple platform. While the iOS 14 release did not see these changes taking effect, the “labels” are expected to show up on App Store listings sometime later this year.Apple’s Developer site has been updated to mention that developers will have to submit data tracking information for new apps and app updates to the App Store starting December 8. Once these labels go live, each app’s product page will have information about “some of the data types the app may collect and whether that data is linked to them or used to track them”.- Advertisement – Are iPhone 12 mini, HomePod mini the Perfect Apple Devices for India?

This information will be required [in order] to submit new apps and app updates to the App Store starting December 8, 2020,” the Cupertino giant has cautioned developers.There are no details on exactly when these labels will go live on the App Store, but Apple mentions that the App Store will help users understand an app’s privacy practices by “later this year”. Developers will have to answer app privacy questions in App Store Connect. The developers will be presented with multiple options and they will have to select suitable answers from there. Apple has asked iOS developers to disclose all of the data “you or your third-party partners collect”, and has duly warned them that they will be “responsible for keeping responses accurate and up to date”.To help developers further, Apple has mentioned a few criteria where data types is optional to disclose, and all this is mentioned on the Apple Developers site.- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgOct 4, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – A powerful motivator for getting a seasonal influenza vaccine is having suffered through the misery of the disease.However, factors that sway people away from vaccination are a lack of information and outright misconceptions, the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) found in a consumer survey released at a press conference today. The conference, with some of the nation’s top health experts in attendance, marked the start of the flu immunization season.Julie Gerberding, MD, MPH, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said there will be 100 million seasonal influenza vaccine doses available this year, 17 million more than last year. However, Gerberding and other experts worry that Americans, particularly those with health risks, won’t take full advantage of the increased supply.”We’d like to see the highest-ever rates, especially among seniors,” she said. “The vaccine is here, and the time is now. Let’s make this our best flu season.”The study found that less than half of respondents (48%) planned to get a flu shot this year. The study, a random-dial telephone sample of 1,014 adults (503 men and 511 women) aged 18 and older, found that of the 52% who said they wouldn’t get a flu shot, 43% didn’t think influenza was serious enough to warrant vaccination.More than half of the respondents said they regarded a cold and influenza as similar health problems and would treat them similarly. Close to half—46%—of respondents incorrectly thought that flu vaccine could cause the illness itself.Better than half of those who planned to be immunized this year said they made vaccination a priority after suffering a bout of flu in a previous season, according to the survey.Study respondents knew that the period of September through November is the best time to be immunized—but they erroneously believed that December is too late to benefit from the vaccine.”We’d like to correct that perception,” said Susan J. Rehm, MD, NFID medical director and vice chair of the Department of Infectious Diseases at the Cleveland Clinic. The flu season peaks in December, January, and February, sometime even in March, she said.  “The medical community must reinforce that later-season vaccination is useful, even if the disease has already begun in your area.”Mark McClellan, MD, PhD, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said about a third of seniors don’t get annual flu shots, even though vaccination is free through Medicare part B. He noted that each year, 200,000 people are hospitalized with influenza, and 36,000 die of the disease.”There’s a prevention gap here that we see too often, and we’re working very hard to close it,” he said.Medicare officials are hoping to increase flu vaccination rates among seniors with a personalized, grassroots approach that focuses on preventive care, including vaccination and screening, McClellan said. Preventive services are now being promoted and delivered with the same system that administers the new Medicare prescription drug benefit, he said.Another group on which health experts are focusing their flu vaccine message is parents of children aged 6 months to 5 years. Earlier this year, the CDC added 2-, 3-, and 4-year-olds (and their household contacts) to its recommendations about who should receive the flu vaccine.Julia McMillan, MD, a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics committee on infectious diseases and vice chair for pediatric education at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said now is the time for parents to call their children’s pediatrician to schedule an appointment for vaccination. Children in the recommended age-group who have not been immunized before will need two doses, 1 month apart.”Rates aren’t what they should be, especially in kids who have chronic conditions such as asthma,” she said, noting that children who have chronic conditions are five times as likely as healthy children to be hospitalized with influenza.Health officials also said they’d like to make people more aware of the CDC recommendation that pregnant women should receive flu shots. In the NFID survey, less than half (49%) thought that pregnant women should be vaccinated.Healthcare workers are another group with relatively low vaccination rates, despite the CDC’s longstanding recommendation that they get annual flu shots. Only 36% of healthcare workers are vaccinated each year; unvaccinated workers contribute to flu outbreaks and staffing shortages in health care facilities.The CDC has issued stronger, earlier recommendations for healthcare workers, and in June the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) issued a new infection control standard that requires accredited organizations to offer flu immunizations to staff, volunteers, and others who have close contact with patients. The requirement takes effect Jan 1, 2007.Gerberding said vaccine manufacturers will deliver 75 million doses of vaccine by the end of October, and she hopes there will be fewer problems with uneven distribution of the vaccines this year. Because vaccine distribution is handled by the private sector, coordination can be difficult, she said. However, she added that the National Influenza Vaccine Summit, made up of 130 industry groups, has been working to resolve problems with supply and distribution.last_img read more

first_imgAfter a series of questions to encourage internal dialogue about our own professional essence and its connection with tourism, in this column I talk about why it is difficult for us to make career change decisions, who influences them and who has the last word in that story.It is worth repeating once again that in the process of seeking our professional definition, we should not rely much on the state, employers or education. Not because of criticism that would be an end in itself, but because no one cares enough about how satisfied, motivated, and engaged we are. Or it should be. Financially, for the “care” of young people and the promotion of the (tourism) profession on an annual basis is allocated 52 times less compared to some other tourism “worries” or let’s call them; priorities. More on that soon.Now, if we can’t really find support in revealing our own professional identity in the state, employers and education, the question is how can we help ourselves? And what decisions do we need to make? And is there any proven recipe here? Instructions? Equations? Well, if there was a universal solution, only satisfied people with large MERAKI capital would walk this planet. Let’s remember, MERAKI is passion, part of your own essence that you put into what you do. And to our great joy, in Croatian tourism we have giants with such capital. Employees, managers, employers, consultants, professors, civil servants, scientists and journalists who make tourism a better system. More about them soon.The focus here is on those who have “strayed” into tourism. Who do not like tourism. Who don’t like their job. No organization. No guests. Who are tired of tourism. Who no longer want to have anything to do with tourism. And those who want to stay in tourism, but not in the same way. The focus is on the processes going on in your heads. And on the awareness that it is action is the key to any success (Pablo Picasso), and thus in finding his own professional definition.As a scientist, I often hear that theories are useless, but the truth is the water is deep. Although I am a proponent of practical demonstration, I must emphasize that theories teach and guide us. Their value is that many before us have tested them in different variants and confirmed their correctness, but making decisions based on these findings (evidence based management) has yet to be introduced into our business practice. Let’s demonstrate this with the example of our marketing and sales director who understands that tourism consumes him and yet it is not his ultimate passion. Career development theories say that he should be able to respond to the needs of different jobs and adapt to the requirements of the employer [1], that balance, authenticity and challenges are his most important motivators and that he will make a career change decision differently from the colleague he works with [ 2], and that he will feel best when his new job allows him to be what his identity really is [3].Conclusion 1. The scientific knowledge and experiences of others can give us direction, but they do not give all the answers.Although we live in a time when it is generally concluded that “young people have high expectations”, that “no one is looking for a permanent job anymore”, it is important to know that neither domestic nor foreign research confirms these theses. These scientific studies actually demystify the “stability of work” in the context of globalization and technological development, concluding that today, as 30 years ago, it is still important for people to have a stable job and that no significant changes in “work” behavior have occurred [4]. It has been noticed that men stay a little shorter in a certain job, but the feeling of security that a certain job / career brings is still important. This is supported by a recent survey [5] conducted in three different time periods on a sample of 465 employees, according to which 66% of respondents hope for a secure and stable career with one employer.In most European countries, people work for the same employer for an average of 10 years, and the Croatian CES estimates that young people entering the labor market will change jobs on average 4 times [6], which is three times less than the average American.Our colleague confirms these estimates but also points to something even more important; the traditional values ​​that guide our society are also reflected in “work behavior”. And that social framework, whether we like it or not, gives shape to our personal value system. Because it is clear that we were born in India, Tibet or China so that our order of values ​​would be different from the one from which all our reactions, decisions and actions are currently based !?Conclusion 2. Job security is a (intergenerational) dominant value. Be aware of all the values (family, money, religion, freedom, adventure, social status, etc.) do you define what you do or would like to do?When this young director is given the opportunity to change jobs, the decision will be influenced by his assessment of the extent to which his skills, interests and values ​​are in line with the requirements of the new job / career [7]. So, excellent analytical and sales skills + travel preferences (interest) + balance, financial freedom and adventurism (values) are the foundations on which our colleague will look for new jobs and make decisions about them, without even being aware of it!We now also have proof that our decisions are greatly influenced by those closest to us; parents, siblings, friends and partners [8]. Therefore, in the process of changing jobs, it would be worthwhile for our Millennial to become aware of who and what kind of influence he may have on his decisions. Let us not forget that everyone has their own value system and from that position they decide and act. It is important to emphasize that in special discussions they will meet with the opposite sex because they arise from different understandings of work / career and different ways of making decisions between men and women [9]. While both he and his partner will have important challenges in the early stages of their careers, over time women tie their decisions to family balance and often only in the later stages of their careers do they commit to revealing their professional identity [10].Conclusion 3. The way you evaluate your skills, strengths and potentials can be a limiting factor in finding professional passion. As well as the beliefs of loved ones. Revise your estimates with the support of experts! If you hear from our colleague that he “accidentally got a job there”, “that tourism simply found him”, etc., now we know that the so-called “Planned coincidence” [11] which, according to scientists, relies heavily on intuition (or luck). This is a very important realization for anyone who wants to understand their professional essence because even though we are not aware of it, we often base our career / job decisions on some previous activities and events [12]. Two events were crucial to this young man; the fact that from season to season, as a kid, he sold shells to tourists on the waterfront that he would emerge himself, where he spontaneously fell in love with tourism and when he worked one season in his father’s haberdashery factory, realizing what he didn’t want to do.Conclusion 4. Everything you have done so far can serve in understanding your potentials. Be aware of who, when and how influenced your professional direction. Revise the way you look at your work experiences so far!Given his many years of experience in the hotel industry, it would be interesting to follow the ways in which this young director made his career decisions because they involved changes in employers and cities. Were these decisions based on the rational-conscious level or did he give preference to the unconscious aspect that would manifest as instinct or the unconscious automatic process (known in the literature as Good instinct or System 1)? Scientists point out that it is this instinct that makes premature decisions and when our conscious part processes information, it actually selects only those data that support the choice of instinct [13]. The question is also whether he carefully analyzed everything, identified all possible options, compared them, and anticipated all possible factors and focused on the best possible choice (as Maximizer) or its criteria and the threshold of acceptability of a particular job are significantly lower and more flexible (kao satisfactory). If he talked to loved ones who have the characteristics of a character / style opposite to him, they certainly found themselves in a heated discussion because while one emphasized that everything should be planned and planned in advance, the other argued that it is important to have some direction and that just arrange everything. Research indicates that those who have thought and analyzed the best option with a lot of thought ultimately have “better” jobs but feel worse about them, ie they are less satisfied compared to those who made those decisions faster and based on fewer criteria [14 ].Conclusion 5. When deciding on a change of job / career, we cannot completely rely on intuition or ratio. Combine both decision-making styles. Although we live in a country where we do not have much choice in terms of work, to offer our colleague more than 7 jobs / options, it would lead him to a kind of “paralysis” and dissatisfaction because research has shown that even after the decision regretted those other rejected choices This choice paradox explains our anxiety and guilt about too many choices and empirically confirms that the profits of firms that narrowed their choice of offer increased significantly [15]. Wouldn’t it be nice for our colleague to experience the paradox of choice in search of his or her better professional version? And after going through the first phase – realizing that he is not happy / satisfied and not ready to accept that he needs change, and the second phase – awareness of the causes of dissatisfaction and thinking about the possibilities of change [16], that in this third phase – experimenting with their own opportunities and exploring a different range of ideas, this young man really has a choice!He realized he was unhappy because his balance was upset, however questions what to do do i stay in tourism? what if i regret how will I know I made a good decision? make up his daily routine. Let’s remember that he is a great connoisseur and lover of music, so maybe ideas / decisions go in that direction. Or values, beliefs, fears, past events, the influences of loved ones still judgment for staying in tourism. Because after all, it is a concrete job.When he is sure of a new option / idea, the phase of creating a plan follows, and after the plan grows into action, a phase of stabilization is expected, ie consolidation with all aspects of the new job / career. Whether it has to do with tourism or not. Does it include music. Or it is a combination of both. Or something completely new.Conclusion 6. Define what change means to you (complete change of career, project, starting your own business, etc.)? Be aware of what your biggest fears are? And face in your head the worst-case scenarios that can happen if you dare to do what you really want?After so much research, different human experiences, even predictions of game theories, the conclusion is that neither study, nor story, nor impulse, nor numbers can tell us what is best for us. They can help us and they can guide us, but the answer must come from ourselves. And we also have experts (psychologists, coaches) and various methods and tools (manuals, online courses, testing, etc.) that can be useful on this path of cognition and action. Some studies indicate that it takes an average of two years to make a decision to change jobs / careers [17]. Therefore, give yourself time.Once you realize your professional definition, only growth follows! Allow yourself to be or not be tied to tourism. Embrace that responsibility and become aware of your own value systems, the way you experience your skills and potentials, your work experiences so far, the ways you have made decisions so far, and the layers of fears you have.

first_imgThe small family camp Polidor in Istrian Funtana is recording excellent results, and with a capacity of 300 guests it is one of the few camps that is open all year round.A upravo je Polidor camping park osvojio 1. mjesto za najbolji mali kamp u sklopu Dana hrvatskog turizma i akcije koju provodi Hrvatska gospodarska komora Turistički cvijet – Kvaliteta za Hrvatsku, u sklopu koje se dodjeljuju priznanja najboljim gospodarskim subjektima turističkog sektora.Mali obiteljski kamp Polidor u istarskoj Funtani bilježi izvrsne rezultate. S kapacitetom od 300 gostiju jedan je od rijetkih kampova koji radi cijelu godinu. Otvoren je u srpnju 2015. i u posljednjih deset mjeseci ostvario je 36.800 noćenja. U punoj sezoni u kampu je zaposleno 35 radnika. U projekt otvorenja kampa uloženo je 20 milijuna kuna, a ove godine ulaže se još u dodatne sadržaje, smještajne objekte, te uređenje plaže.Mali obiteljski kampovi su “novi” turistički trend koji svakako ima svoju publiku i svoju priču, a najveće prednosti su personalizirani i prisniji pristup kao i kod domaćina u obiteljskom smještaju, te fokus na kvalitetnu, a ne na kvantitetu.15 million kuna invested in the opening of the camp, and this year they are investing an additional 4,5 million in swimming pools and luxury tentsCamp Polidor generates revenue of 2016 million kuna in 3,5, and this year, given the increase in capacity, it expects an increase of 10 percent. HRK 15 million has been invested in the project of opening the camp, and this year another HRK 4,5 million is being invested in additional facilities and accommodation facilities. Camp Polidor is preparing many novelties, and the most important is the construction of two swimming pools, one for adults and the other for children with water attractions, which together with the pool bar will open in April. In addition, seven new luxury mobile homes and 12 luxury glamping tents are being introduced this year, offering special breakfasts in baskets.In order to extend the season, ie to solve the problem of seasonality, we must sell diverse, authentic and quality content because the motive for coming is not accommodation, but a tourist destination. They are well aware of this in the Polidor camp, which, in cooperation with local entrepreneurs, sells various thematic content and additional content. “U pred i posezoni surađujemo s lokalnim pružateljima usluge i raznih doživljaja, od bike i vinskih tura, fish piknika do obilaska raznih atrakcija, kao na primjer Dinoparka za djecu ili odlaska na ribolov. Moramo iskoristiti sve to nam se nudi u okolici, sve atrakcije i doživljaje jer upravo oni motiviraju goste za dolaskom van sezone. „ isriče Gulis Ukušić iz kampa Polidor te dodaje kako su ove godine sklopili razna nova partnerstva od kojih puno očekuju te kako sada samo trebaju lijepo upakirati cijelu turističku priču i samo je ispričati gostima. Inače, ove godine imaju 20-30 posto bolji booking nego prošle godine.Polidor has already received numerous awards, among which INOVACAMP 2016 stands out for its innovative concept of providing high-quality personalized service. The owners of the camp cultivate a personalized approach to each guest, and the innovation is manifested primarily in the multi-purpose building with numerous facilities for guests in the winter months. In the heated rooms there is a bathroom with toilets for children and the disabled, showers, family bathroom, space for hand washing and dishes and even a shower for pets. The building also includes a children’s playroom with a large slide, a small fitness room, and massage and billiards areas. In the second building, on the other hand, there is a room for socializing with a fireplace and a TV for socializing in the winter. Near the camp there is a modern beach to which guests are transported by train.In addition to the quality accommodation that is taken for granted, in the Polidor camp they sell quality service and content and through synergy with other local entrepreneurs make a winning combination and formula for a great tourist story. See how they do it on the camp website  www.campingpolidor.com, which is more than modern and functional, which is certainly the point of the “and” of this great tourist story.last_img read more

first_imgThe “1.000 Valamar Trees” initiative is a continuation of the development of the Green Valamar corporate social responsibility program, within which Valamar has been systematically carrying out activities in the field of environmental protection for years. Valamar uses 100% green electricity from renewable sources, which in the period from 2015 to 2019 reduced greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 65%. In the past six years, Valamar has also installed 5.200 square meters of solar panels. Also last year, Valamar completely phased out plastic straws from use in its hotels and camps. Valamar works to raise the environmental awareness of guests, employees and the wider community, which includes actions to clean the Adriatic Sea and the coast, in which numerous sports associations participate every year. The ISO14001 environmental management system has been introduced in all Valamar facilities, and 75% of accommodation units in hotels and resorts are Travelife certified, which confirms the sustainability of operations according to the highest international standards. As many as six Valamar camps have received the prestigious European EU Ecolabel certificate this year, making them one of the most sustainable tourist resorts in Europe. “As a leader in tourism in Croatia, with the initiative ‘1.000 Valamar trees’ we give our direct contribution to the preservation of the environment and the environment in which we operate and live. We have a responsibility to create new value in a way that will preserve and develop our highly valuable natural resources for future generations. Last year, we invested around HRK 22 million in Zelena Valamar, of which almost HRK 7 million in horticulture alone. I am also glad that our employees are happy to get involved in our tree planting actions”, Said Ivana Budin Arhanić, Vice President for Business Development and Corporate Affairs of Valamar Riviera. Already in 2019, more than a thousand trees and more than 50.000 different seedlings such as tall shrubs and perennials will be planted in Valamar hotels, resorts and camps. The initiative will continue in the coming period in which Valamar intends to plant at least 1.000 trees a year and continue intensive care for the protection and restoration of indigenous plant species in its destinations. In addition to planting trees and plants, Valamar continuously takes care of the health of the existing plant fund, which includes over 30.000 trees on a total area of ​​589 hectares from Istria to Dubrovnik.center_img Valamar Riviera is launching the “1.000 Valamar Trees” initiative, the largest green initiative of its kind in Croatian tourism.
