Citizen involvement leads to better government

first_imgDear Editor: People tend to think that it is impossible to get involved in their government. They tend to think that it is hopeless to help out those in need. In actuality, the only impossibility is that mindset. It is really quite simple to get involved in your government. The best way is to find out what bills are on the floor of the House or the Senate and then call or email your representative to tell them you want them to support the bill or not. It will take you thirty seconds to shoot off that email and less than a minute to call. If more people did that on the daily they would see how simple it really is to get involved.There is also nothing complicated or impossible about improving living conditions for people suffering in abject poverty. Once you have gotten involved in your government it is an easy jump to advocate for those in need. Find bills that support people around the world who are struggling and get your representatives’ support. Helping people is a bipartisan issue that everyone should and can become involved in.

Mapuches: Piñera Modifies Law Untouched in Twenty Years

first_img In modifying an anti-terrorist law inherited from Augusto Pinochet and applied to Mapuches who were on a hunger strike, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera did what “we never managed to get from the center-left in twenty years,” Marco Enríquez Ominami affirmed in Paris on 10 November. “For twenty years, it was the center-left that applied this anti-terrorist law. In twenty years, we never managed to get a center-left president” to cease applying it, the Chilean congressional deputy maintained in a talk hosted by the Maison d’Amerique Latine in Paris. Enríquez Ominami affirmed that since he became a deputy in 2006, he had been calling on successive Concertación administrations not to apply this law, “but they told me that the only one who could do that was the president.” “And it was Piñera, after twenty years of the center-left, who announced the modification of the anti-terrorist law that was applied to the Mapuches,” on a hunger strike for almost three months, the thirty-six-year-old leader emphasized. The anti-terrorist law inherited from the dictatorship tripled the penalties imposed by ordinary legislation. Thirty-four Mapuches, most of them imprisoned on charges of burning farms in the context of their claim to their ancestral lands, carried out a hunger strike of almost three months seeking that this law, which put them at risk of sentences of up to one hundred years, not be applied to them. Piñera, who became president in March 2010, succeeding the Socialist Michele Bachelet, promoted the modification of the law, which was approved by the Chilean Congress on 30 September. “The resolution of the Mapuche issue was one of the things that Piñera did well, above all coming from where he does, from a reactionary right wing,” Marco Enríquez Ominami affirmed. The son of Miguel Enríquez, a prominent member of the Revolutionary Left Movement (MIR) assassinated by Pinochet’s dictatorship (1973-90), and raised in exile in France, Marco Enríquez Ominami abandoned Chile’s Socialist Party months before the 2009 presidential elections, in which he ran as an independent leftist candidate and obtained 20% of the votes.

The new visual identity of Karlovac County was presented

first_imgKarlovac County, which in recent years has seen an increase in the number of tourists, has received a new tourist visual identity and has designed the overall identity of the brand, which should further position it on the tourist map of Croatia with international recognition.   If you want to find out more about the development of tourism in Karlovac County, below you can study the strategy for the development of tourism in Karlovac County until 2025. The new tourist visual identity was designed by the team of the Millennium Promotion Agency, and was inspired by the key advantages and associations of the County – rivers, forests and a unique geographical position – in the heart of Croatia. Cover photo: Davor Rostuhar – writer and photographer / Karlovac County Tourist Board / Illustration “The logo of Karlovac County is a graphic interpretation of a windmill – children’s toys composed of drops that symbolize the many rivers and streams of the county, or leaves that are a symbol of the richness of forests. And in the performance we were inspired by the mill spoons from Rastok. And all this with the recognizable Karlovac Star in the center, which in turn symbolizes the geographical position and belonging to the destination”Said Vladimir Resner, author of the new visual identity of Karlovac County, which symbolizes joy, diversity and playfulness. In addition to tourist applications, the logo has its derivatives for other activities in the county.   Every brand should be simple and recognizable, communicatively clear and visually impressive, and at the same time based on reality, ie identity, potentials and the offer of the destination., points out prof. dr. sc. Božo Skoko from the Millennium Promotion and adds: “To define the basic elements of brand identity, it is important to explore the opinion of the community as the bearer of identity in the destination area. I am glad that the thoughts of the external experts coincided with those in the county. The richness of natural beauties, unique rivers and forests, preserved cultural heritage, traditional products and gastronomy make Karlovac County indigenous and attractive to various segments of guests. Its additional trump card is the proximity of Zagreb, but also the fact that it lies on key traffic corridors, which make it easily accessible. “ said Skoko, who has been working with the Millennium Promotion destination branding team and designer Vladimir Resner in recent months to define the identity and personality of the Karlovac County brand.  Side dish:center_img And since a new slogan was presented along with the sign In the media really (In the middle of things) the author explains that the new slogan is not only technical information about the geographical position of the County, but also carries an emotional value – a message that says that in that county they deal with important things, that they are fast and efficient, and tell tourists how they are in the center of events, in the heart of Croatia. By the way, Karlovac County is considered the greenest Croatian county, it is rich in rivers, it leans on the most visited Croatian national park Plitvice Lakes, and spatially connects Pannonian Croatia with the Adriatic and Slovenia with Bosnia. This was precisely one of the foundations for the creation of a new visual identity. Indigenousness, openness, dynamism, excitement, inspiration and fairytale are the key elements of the Karlovac County brand, point out the Millennium Agency, and hold that the differentiation of the county is based on its unique nature and geographical and traffic position. “It is accessible and offers an extremely natural environment, suitable for creating attractive tourist facilities, activities, experiences and experiences. It has an exceptional historical and cultural heritage, as evidenced by stories and legends, attractive architectural buildings and unique historical monuments, works of art and greats who grew up here, lived or were inspired, such as Nikola Tesla, Seljan brothers, Ivana Brlić Mažuranić, Juraj Križanić, Vjekoslav Karas, Frankopan family… At the same time, the inhabitants of the county are hospitable and open, enterprising and proud of their identity, they live with nature, preserve tradition and develop a quality eno-gastronomic offer.”Explain from the Millennium Agency.

Czech membership in third-pillar pensions continues to shrink

first_imgCzech third-pillar funds registered a further fall in membership as the new system enters its second year.According to figures from the Association of Pension Funds of the Czech Republic (APF CR), as of the end of March 2014, the number of participants totalled 4.92m, a fall of 0.8% since the start of the year.The number of members of the so-called “transformed” funds, which were closed to new entrants in November 2012, declined by nearly 70,000 as retirees cashed in their benefits.The replacement “participation” funds increased their membership by nearly 29,000 to 1.2m. So far, the participation funds, which require a higher contribution to qualify for an additional state contribution, have not proved as popular as the transformed ones.In addition, unlike the one-size-fits-all transformed funds, the participation funds, with their range of risk profiles, do not offer a guaranteed return.Assets under management in the transformed funds grew by 2.9% year to date in Czech koruna terms to CZK289bn (€10.5bn), and those in the participation funds by 43.7% to CZK1.8bn.The transformed fund investment strategies remained extremely conservative, with Czech government bonds accounting for nearly 70% of aggregate portfolios, a further 22% in other bonds and money market instruments, and only 1.5% in shares and participation certificates.Membership of the second-pillar funds also grew, 0.8% to 82,630, which is surprising given that the current government intends to abolish it by 2016, while assets increased by 88.9% to CZK654m.Despite their wider investment horizons, around a half of second pillar and participation fund assets were placed in bank deposits and similar accounts.A pension reform commission appointed by the government to produce a plan for dismantling the system while safeguarding individual members’ accumulated assets started work in mid May.last_img read more
