The State Inspectorate is finally bringing order. The eVisitor system compares ads on Booking.com to catch illegal renters

first_imgApart from the fact that illegal renters lower the price, they do not pay taxes (thus earning more than you) damage directly to you, as well as to the entire tourist destination. The new State Inspectorate has consolidated the tasks of 17 inspections within eight ministries. Thus, market, sanitary, veterinary, agricultural, hunting, forestry, phytosanitary, tourist, mining, inspection of pressure equipment, energy, management of toxic chemicals, labor, construction, environmental protection, nature protection and water inspection are united. Those who do everything according to the Law do not have to be afraid or intimidated by inspections. Recall, in accordance with the new amendments to the Law on Hospitality, which, among other things, requires that tourism inspectors have the opportunity to apply the principle of opportunity, ie the possibility that minor violations can be warned, with a deadline to correct irregularities, not to they immediately print out fines. So, if someone has listed their apartment on Booking.com, it is easy to see if the same landlord is also registered in the eVisitor system. On the other hand, all those who respect the Law and settle all their obligations to the State, turn out to be “fools” towards those who do not. So accordingly, the question arises whether you will report your “colleagues”, friends, neighbors who rent illegally? On the other hand, illegal renters are unfair competition and a big problem of our tourism. In addition to not paying taxes and all other levies, by lowering prices, they destroy the market and thus are unfair competition to all those who pay everything regularly and according to the law. RELATED NEWS: As the inspections merged and with the reorganization of the independent State Inspectorate, the work of the inspections should have been more efficient and functional. In tourism, it should enable a clearer and more concrete fight against the black and gray economy. Certainly, it is in everyone’s interest to suppress the black market, because they are unfair competition to legal landlords. It is in everyone’s interest to combat illegal landlords. Why would they be “smart” and you “fools”. Yes, that is exactly what everyone who pays according to the law turns out to be. center_img Report illegal landlords as well as anyone else who does not comply with the Act. “Advertising on platforms such as Booking.com and Airbnb can also be a reason to conduct inspections. Namely, the Law on Catering stipulates that when advertising and advertising services and displaying messages in promotional materials, the landlord may use only the designation of the prescribed type and the category and type of special standard of the facility determined by the competent office, and when advertising and advertising services with taxpayers from the European Union must indicate the tax number, ie VAT identification number”, They explain in the inspectorate for Poslovni dnevnik. TAX ADMINISTRATION MOVES FISCALIZATION SUPERVISION IN THE ACCOMMODATION SERVICE SECTOR Everyone must pay taxes and all levies prescribed by law, including landlords. We need fair market competition, so let the one who is better, more creative, more proactive, more capable “win” and the one who invests more in quality and gives his personal contribution as a host. Non-payment of taxes, non-registration of workers and illegal landlords are the cancer of the wound of our tourism, and the State Inspectorate will focus on that. In order to carry out better control and bring order to the black zone, under the new law, inspectors will be able to enter facilities that have not reported renting accommodation. It is the tourism sector, renters and catering facilities, announced by the State Inspectorate, that will be in focus before the start of the peak tourist season. The unified State Inspectorate began operations on Monday (April 01st). How to find illegal renters? Simply. Assistance to the State Inspectorate will be eVisitor data where all renters must register, and illegal renters will be compared with data / advertisements on the strongest booking portals, such as Booking.com and Airbnb.com.

Turris breaks out of slump

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoThe proverbial monkey is finally off Kyle Turris’ back.With a goal three minutes into the third period of Saturdaynight’s matchup against St. Cloud State, Turris broke a streak of nine gameswithout scoring a goal. If that slump doesn’t seem too daunting, consider howTurris started the season.Coming to Wisconsin with the most preseason hype of anyplayer in recent memory — he was the No. 3 overall pick by Phoenix in the NHL EntryDraft — Turris didn’t disappoint early in the year. Through the team’s firstfour games, the freshman from British Columbia netted five goals, tallied sevenassists and at one point led the nation in scoring.But then the WCHA season started, and the freshman phenom’storrid pace cooled down. He managed to record just four assists through ninegames and had five games in which he didn’t score a single point.So it came as no surprise to see Turris get a bit moreexcited Saturday than after any of his previous goals.”It feels really good,” Turris said of his goal. “It wasjust a matter of time.”Turris jumped around between a few different lineupsSaturday, starting the night off on the top line with Ben Street and PodgeTurnbull, but he skated with Michael Davies and Aaron Bendickson when he scoredin the third. The movement between lines allowed Turris to fire off agame-high seven shots on goal, including three in the final period.”I was getting lots of shots, I was hitting posts,” Turrissaid. “I was getting lots of great passes from [Street] and Bendickson andPodge and Davies.”Finally, one of those shots went in. Bendickson and DavisDrewiske were credited with the assist as Turris beat St. Cloud State netminderJase Weslosky to tie the game up at 3-3. Josh Engel would later add his secondgoal of the game to give Wisconsin a 4-3 win.”I think it was lucky,” Turris said. “It kind of wentthrough his arm. I just tried to throw everything on net, tonight especially.”After the goal, the entire Wisconsin bench jumped up incelebration, all knowing the pressure Turris had relieved with his goal.”I think all you need to do is look at the bench after hescored,” head coach Mike Eaves said. “His teammates were still pounding him onhis shoulder pads.”Eaves said Turris’ teammates empathized with the freshman,as they have all been through ups and downs in their careers.”That’s a nice weight to be lifted off his shoulders,” Eavessaid. “His teammates feel for him, because they know that he’s a gifted playerand they … have all gone through similar kinds of slumps like that. For anoffensive guy, it’s a struggle.””Kyle is a great player,” said forward Josh Engel, whorecorded two goals in Saturday’s win. “He’s going to be one of those greatplayers in the NHL, too.”Perhaps another reason for the Badgers’ celebration afterthe goal was what it meant for them as a team. When Turris has found the netthis season, Wisconsin is 4-1. When Turris is held without a goal, UW is just3-5-1.”They were really happy for him,” Eaves said. “They know,too, that if Kyle’s being productive, we have a better chance of beingsuccessful on the ice.”Turris’ score came at a crucial time in Saturday’s game.After jumping ahead to an early 1-0 lead, UW eventually fell behind 3-2 headinginto the final period. For a team that had recorded just one sweep prior to theseries, Eaves knew the third period would be the biggest of the weekend.”This is our sixth period. This is the period when you growas a player,” Eaves said. “If you want to become a champion player or achampionship-caliber team, this is the period where you have to show yourworth.”With his goal to tie the game, Turris certainly showed hisworth and reminded fans why he was so highly touted coming into the season. Andfor Turris, he hopes the goal is a sign of things to come.”I just got lucky on one, so hopefully they’ll start cominga bit easier,” Turris said.last_img read more

Problem in School System Begins with Teachers: Ganta City DEO

first_imgThe newly assigned District Education Officer of Ganta, Mr. Lynol Mantor has disclosed that many of the problems in our school system today were due to laissez-faire(lax) attitudes  of school administrations and their teachersMaking the disclosure to reporters recently, Mr. Mantor said based on his observation on school campuses he had visited in his district; school administrations and teachers are not committed to their duties by being punctual.He added that he is going to be very tough on teacher’s attendance records and make sure that they are fully intact in all public schools under his control.“I am going to start with the teachers first. If they are supposed to be in class at certain time and don’t show up, what do you expect the students to do?” he asked rhetorically.“I am going to go from school to school to see the attendance roster of teachers; their time in and time out,” he added.Mr. Mantor said, “If the student is in uniform doing different things in the street during school hours, the principal should be able to answer the question, why?”In the Ganta School System, parents prefer sending their children to private schools rather than public ones because on many occasions, students attending public school are seen roaming the campuses during school hours when they are supposed to be in classes learning.One of the reasons for students roaming their campuses during school hours is government paid teachers who are teaching in more than two schools daily. This situation makes it hard for them to be to their various classes on time.“I will make sure schools that are lacking teachers are being staffed adequately; and schools that are overstaffed be staffed evenly,” he asserted.“If any school doesn’t meet up with the criteria for a high school by bringing qualified staff, I am going to cut the school down to Jr. High level,” he added.“I have observed that some schools have only one BSc Degree holder and they are running a high school. Can one BSc Degree holder alone teach a high school?” he queried.Mr. Mantor also called on money lenders in Ganta to cooperate with his office to ensure effective teaching; because some teachers are in the habit of taking loans. Upon receiving such money, they abandon their duties and do something else.“Many teachers who get cash from these money lenders sometimes take 10 months’ salary advance and go to their villages and abandon classes”, he explained.“Before they give loans any of my teachers, my office should be notified,” he asserted.In Ganta, there are two money lenders, Pheree Dekpah and Sam Brown. Their businesses are patronized equally to banks in Ganta.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
