first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr As a data scientist and millennial woman, I take a keen interest in understanding the concerns, trends and behaviors of women in my generation. Fortunately, BlackRock’s latest Global Investor Pulse survey reveals key insights about how millennial women are approaching their financial lives in today’s environment.Focused on the long term despite declining confidenceIn this year’s survey, we saw a 10-point decline in confidence among all Americans compared to what we found in our previous survey. Millennial women’s confidence fell in line with the nation’s, from 42% in 2015 to 32% in 2017. Like most Americans, millennial women are chiefly concerned about the high cost of living (64%), and they are also particularly affected by personal debt.That said, millennial women are more likely than any other group to prioritize paying off debt (54% versus 42% for all Americans) and more likely to see student debt as a relevant financial topic to them (40% versus 19% for all Americans). Although many grapple with debt and saving for near-term priorities, millennial women haven’t lost focus on their long-term financial goals. In fact, the most relevant financial topic to them is retirement planning. continue reading »last_img read more

Adriatic Squid Days as a great example of how tourism is developing

first_imgThis year, from December 1, 2018 to January 6, 2019, the restaurants of northwestern Istria are hosting the Days of Adriatic Squid, a gourmet event that seeks to valorize the extraordinary squid from the Adriatic Sea and raise awareness of their value in the kitchen.This gourmet event, in addition to being an additional motive for visiting northwestern Istria (Umag, Novigrad, Brtonigla, Buje) during the Christmas holidays, seeks to valorize the extraordinary squid from the Adriatic Sea that is fished in the winter. It aims to raise awareness of their value in the kitchen and encourages caterers to devise new, creative recipes based on this seafood.”With this gourmet event, we want to valorize and present the Adriatic squid, a top local food that is the most delicious and best to prepare at this time of year, and is part of our rich gastronomic culture. Adriatic Squid Days are an additional motive for visiting northwestern Istria during the Christmas holidays, and in addition to enjoying the delicacies specially prepared for this occasion by the chefs of famous restaurants, visitors will surely enjoy other beauties offered by northwestern Istria.”, said Milovan Popović, director of the Tourist Board of the City of Umag.That homemade squid is truly a great snack that can be prepared in the traditional way, but also through new interesting combinations will be shown by the chefs of seven restaurants who have designed special menus for this occasion at affordable prices. In restaurants Melon i Nono in Umag, Vili Vilola in Savudrija, Astarea in Brtonigla, Lux Casino Hotel Mulino i Rondo in Buje and San Benedetto in Novigrad, visitors will be able to enjoy the culinary delicacies and rich flavors of Adriatic squid, all combined with local wines and top quality olive oils. Find out more about the gourmet event Adriatic Squid Days on the official website websites.With emphasis on Adriatic squid, not the one from Patagonia, which in combination with modern cuisine are presented in an attractive way. And that is exactly the key to success and the very essence of tourism. Selling an authentic story.“Never forget who you are, what you are and where you come from, nor forget your knowledge of local products. I would not want Croatian chefs to make the same mistake as Italian or Spanish, who try to satisfy tourists and forget the tradition”Said French chef Lionel Levy with a Michelin star in Osijek after the workshop organized by the CNTB, where he literally opened the eyes of the audience and showed how local food can make a top presentation of dishes that belong to the very top of world cuisine. You just need to add innovation, presentation creation and respect local ingredients. The combination of tradition and modernity, that is the main message, and that it is certainly possible, he presented in a practical way – perk from the fish in an innovative and different way.”It is important to protect and defend the recipes of your ancestors, otherwise they will get lost. Defend the recipes of your ancestors!Levy concluded. A strong message from chef Lionel Levy that can certainly be interpreted as the philosophy of the whole tourism because that is exactly the very meaning of tourism. People travel to get to know new ways and culture of living, and authenticity is the very essence of tourism. We seem to be ashamed of our history, traditions, identity, way of life, etc.… we have to start respecting ourselves, so that others can respect us, and the tourism workers who create our tourism product are not aware that this is our biggest advantage, our incredible diversity. and authenticity. We constantly strive to be some copies, and figuratively we sell French wine to the French.That is why the Days of Adriatic Squid, as well as all other gastronomic events and tourist stories, were small or large, which respect the tradition of extremely important, long-term sustainable and a real signpost in which direction our tourism must develop. It must be our main tourist product – our authentic story. We can learn so many lessons from this example, and the most important one is to stimulate the local economy, which is the meaning of tourism, to increase tourist spending and disperse to as many participants as possible at the local level, not to finance imported products. Photo: Colors of IstriaIt is insane to import potatoes, tomatoes, eggs, lettuce, squid, etc.… We are destroying our economy and our resource and we are only dealing with form through rental tourism, not content. And that is not sustainable in the long run, which we can see day by day in any of our tourist destinations. Everyone loses, and even hotels in the end because the motive for coming is not accommodation, but diverse, quality and authentic content.Because I wonder why someone from Zagreb would come to Istria to eat “Zagreb steak”? Of course not. This is exactly what they are aware of in Istria, and the most important interest of the guests goes in favor of that, so from year to year the event attracts more and more guests from the entire region. Top quality and authenticity – this is how tourism develops and the tourist season is extended. Learn from the better and successful, learn from Istria.last_img read more
