Presented thematic trail 20 km long and a new brochure of the island of Mljet – a mystical oasis

first_imgThe “Olive Road”, 20 kilometers long, begins in Babino Polje, and leads to Odysseus’ Cave through hundred-year-old olive groves. The path “Sacral treasure of Babino polje” is a short circular, passes through the town of Babino Polje, and leads to churches and chapels that testify to the Christian tradition of the island since the 11th century. The project on Mljet was implemented as part of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County project “Paths of the Past” co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund, and is implemented through the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014-2020. The aim of the project is to create and promote the cultural and ethnographic offer of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The brochure was printed as part of the project “Rural educational, cultural and ethnographic tourist attraction” for the purpose of promoting landscaped hiking trails in the central part of Mljet. “Drywall Road” is a 500-meter-long trail that represents a cultural landscape shaped by fields and drystone walls, forming a unique cultural and natural heritage unit. The route also includes the core of the hamlets of Ocinje and Zabrežje with volts from the 15th century. The trail “Water springs – old stream” follows a stream with a riverbed that often dries up, testifying to the importance of water for agricultural activities in the area of ​​Babino polje from the Middle Ages to the present day. Along with the Austrian road and the Babino polje thematic trails, the project also includes the Dubrovnik Littoral Native House, the Korčula City Museum located in the Ismaeli-Gabrielis Palace and the Smokvica Gold and Silver Museum. The tourist offer of Mljet is richer for a new thematic tour as long as 20 kilometers, which is presented through a new brochure “Mljet – a mystical oasis”.center_img The aim of arranging themed trails and the Austrian Road is to present the rich heritage of the Island and ensure a longer stay of guests. In addition to the thematic trails of Babino polje, 850 meters of the Austrian road between the settlements of Sobra and Babino Polje have been arranged. A brochure with information on new tourist attractions can be found in the offices of the Tourist Board of the Municipality of Mljet and the information centers of the National Park Mljet or downloaded in electronic form attached. “Paths of the past” Attachment: Brochure Mljet – a mystical oasislast_img read more

Mistakes aside, USC is showing good signs

first_imgSaturday’s victory against the Colorado Buffaloes was a major one for the USC football team. It was neither pretty nor perfect, but the hard-fought win represented growth. Nothing symbolized this more than the aggressive play call on 3rd and 7 with 1:19 remaining in the game.Brian Chin | Daily Trojan Inopportune injury · Senior running back Justin Davis was carted off the field during Saturday’s win over Colorado with a high ankle sprain. Davis is USC’s leading rusher this season with 476 yards through six games.Instead of running a conservative draw play or a safe pass well short of the sticks, USC put trust in its redshirt freshman quarterback Sam Darnold and junior wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. The trust was rewarded when Darnold found Smith-Schuster in single coverage for a 25-yard gain that effectively ended the game.This play call represented a stark contrast from the decision-making by the coaching staff at the end of the Utah game. At Rice Eccles stadium, USC ran a safe short pass to Smith-Schuster on third down late in the game that had no chance to move the sticks. That play was the one that preceded the infamous punt call from the Utah 37-yard line.Though the circumstances were somewhat different, there were a lot of parallels between the two situations. It appears as if the coaching staff has learned from their mistake two weeks ago, and that is the most you can ask for from a young, new group at the helm. They realized that when you have playmakers like Darnold and Smith-Schuster, it is smart to get them the ball when the game is on the line.Coach Clay Helton isn’t going to turn into Nick Saban overnight, but Saturday demonstrated his ability to learn and grow on the job. Considering Colorado’s offense had scored a touchdown and a field goal on the previous two possessions against a worn-out defense, Helton deserves enormous credit for deciding to let his offense be the aggressor and preserve the victory.It wasn’t totally the coaching on Saturday. Overall, the Trojans made the plays to win the game. Whether it was junior cornerback Adoree’ Jackson shape-shifting for an interception that might have defied the laws of physics or senior wide receiver Darreus Rogers imposing his will on a Colorado defensive back, USC players stepped up. When mistakes are made — which they were to the tune of four turnovers – a team needs its stars to carry them. That is exactly what happened.The Trojans still have a long way to go to become a complete team this season. There is something holding them back almost every game, whether that is penalties or turnovers or botched assignments. Saturday, the poison of choice was the fumble. It’s very hard to win games when you lose the turnover battle 4-1.Not only did the Trojans suffer from a rash of miscues, but they also lost senior tailback Justin Davis in the third quarter. Davis, who was on his way to another 100-yard game, left with a high ankle sprain. The Trojan offense just was not the same without the vision and agility of the senior leader.It was clear the scheme was reeling after Davis went down. For a few straight drives after the injury, the runs that were routinely for six to eight yards with Davis went for two to three with the other backs. This left Darnold in the unenviable position of making plays in third down situations with the Colorado defense bearing down on him. Needless to say, this line of play calling led to three straight scoreless drives in the third and fourth quarter.Thankfully, the offensive coaching staff finally made some adjustments during the final few drives and put the ball in the hands of Darnold to win the game. The hesitation to let Darnold carry the team was understandable, as the redshirt freshman had a string of turnovers early in the third. After that, Darnold appeared shaky at times. This could also be attributed to the fact that the bulk of his passing situations were on third down facing the blitz. No quarterback is at his best running for his life as soon as the ball is snapped.Nevertheless, Darnold regained his composure, as all great quarterbacks do, and marched the Trojans down the field for the go ahead touchdown. He was of course aided greatly by Rogers and his superhuman catch. That play seemed to settle the quarterback down, and from there he was back to normal.To continue to succeed the Trojans need to figure out a way to compensate for Davis’s absence. High ankle sprains are limiting at best, and the team might have to prepare without the running back for the time being. On the bright side, sophomore running back Ronald Jones looked to finally get in a groove on the last drive. Maybe a greater bulk of the workload will help him regain his freshman year form.The Trojans still have Darnold. Mistakes happen from a redshirt freshman, and he more than makes up for it with his tremendous playmaking. He gets both the receivers and tight ends involved in the game, and if he can hold onto the ball a little bit better, the offense will regain its explosive scoring form next week against the Wildcats.Each game, the Trojans should be improving. While they regressed in some areas, coaching made a giant leap forward and the defense is starting to coalesce. Combine that with a hard-fought, narrow victory, and the season still has some promise left.last_img read more
