Meet the new souvenirs of Mali Lošinj

first_imgWith the aim of promoting, encouraging the initiative for quality design of indigenous souvenirs and products, affirmation and approach to citizens and guests, the Tourist Board of Mali Lošinj for the tenth year in a row selects original souvenirs of Mali Lošinj.A total of 2016 authors applied for the public call for the selection of the Original Lošinj Souvenir for 5 with a proposal of eleven different unique products. Based on the criteria: quality of workmanship and achieved recognizability, originality, economic accessibility and practicality and possible applicability in everyday use, the expert commission selected eleven souvenirs that will be certified with the label of the Original Lošinj Souvenir.The certificate itself is proof that the souvenir, in addition to artistic and design originality and quality workmanship from natural materials, also expresses the recognizability of its origin associated with the Cres-Lošinj archipelago. It is important that each souvenir tells the guest a story related to tradition, history and customs, so the authors are obliged to tell that story through inspiration, motivation and description of the materials from which the products are made, as well as the method of production. The objects are unique, original, inspired by the landscape of the Cres-Lošinj archipelago, and each object has its own design.Eleven products from Lošinj manufacturers will carry the certificate of Original Lošinj Souvenirs in 2016, and the selected authors are: Sonja Gulam, Čazim Mehmeti, Ana Slaviček Brečić, Sandra Nicolich and Petricia Podda.The Tourist Board of the City of Mali Lošinj will promote certified souvenirs through its own Web pages in seven languages ​​(Croatian, Italian, German, English, Slovenian, French and Russian).Sonja Gulam – fish-shaped soap holder As one of the oldest and most important plant crops, the olive tree has strongly marked the life of the islanders. Hard and solid wood of the olive tree were used to make handles for tools, furniture and other household items, and Sonja Gulam also made a holder for a fish-shaped soap dish coated with olive oil, since in Christianity the olive is a symbol of God’s providence and care for God’s children, and the fish a symbol of Christ and baptism.Čazim Mehmeti – replicas of ancient oil lamps in Osor Ceramic oil lamps were created in the time of antiquity in Osor, when many master pottery workshops made oil lamps from excavated clay from the islands of Cres and Lošinj, which were used for lighting. The motifs of Čazimir Mehmeti are associated with a certain master pottery workshop of ancient times, whose originals can be seen in the Lošinj Museum – Archaeological Collection Osor.Ana Slaviček Brečić – 7 textile products with different motifs (Apoxyomenos, Susak) – T-shirts, pendants Numerous charms of the island of Lošinj inspired Ana Slaviček Brečić to make hand-painted and 100% cotton textile products. The island of Lošinj means a lot to me and inspires me at every step and I am very glad when someone recognizes my work as part of Lošinj. This time, I found inspiration in Apoxyomenos, that is, in his “design of visual identity.” The simplicity of that design inspired me to come up with a few t-shirt designs that I painted by hand. Workshops as part of the project “Let the light not burn”, which took place for two days on the island of Susak, also inspired me to present the luxury of their folk costumes in a modern way. Also, the flora and fauna of the island of Lošinj is an inexhaustible inspiration in my eyes. I try to make and design every souvenir so that it is usable and wearable on every occasion and that it suits everyone, regardless of age. My main goal is for people to accept it as a desirable memory of the wonderful days spent on Lošinj. For that reason, the certificate of the Original Lošinj Souvenir means a lot to me and it is a step closer so that as many people as possible get to know my work, said the author Ana Slaviček Brečić.Sandra Nicolich – Lošinj fragrant candy The candy (hard candy without filling) is made with the addition of the natural aroma of the characteristic Lošinj pine. It is adapted to the modern technological process and certificates of confectionery products. Aromatic candy is intended for all guests of the island as a sweet reminder of Lošinj and Lošinj’s fragrances.Petrica Podda – sheep made of real wool Sheep used to be a major part of life on the island. Handmade from natural materials on Lošinj, designed for all generations, the author uses selected pieces of island sheep wool to make souvenirs.last_img read more

Hellebuyck’s 41 saves leads Jets past Canucks 4-0

first_img Associated Press Television News SUBSCRIBE TO US Kyle Connor scored twice, Connor Hellebuyck made 41 saves for his fourth shutout of the season, and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 on Tuesday night to snap a six-game losing streak at home. It was the 18th shutout of Hellebuyck’s career and gave him the franchise record for shutouts, surpassing Ondrej Pavelec. He earned it with some highlight saves, particularly in the third period, and even tried to shoot the puck down the ice into an empty net, but it hit a Vancouver player.Jack Roslovic and Blake Wheeler also had a goal each and Patrik Laine picked up a pair of assists for the Jets, who have won their past 10 games against Vancouver.Connor’s second goal was into an empty net and gave him a team-leading 24 for Winnipeg (25-18-4).Jacob Markstrom stopped 21 of the 24 shots he faced for the Canucks (25-18-4), who have been shut out three times this season.Winnipeg led 2-0 after the first period and 3-0 after two.The game got off to an unusual start for the Jets, who appeared to score three goals in a span of 37 seconds but only one counted.During a wraparound by Jets centre Mark Scheifele, the puck went off Vancouver forward Brock Boeser and into the net at 1:18. However, a review showed the net had lifted off its mooring and the puck actually slid under the side of it, so the goal didn’t count.Four seconds later, Connor got a cross-ice pass from Sami Niku and sent a one-timer past Markstrom on the glove side.Defenseman Anthony Bittetto’s point shot went by Markstrom at 1:55, but a Vancouver coach’s challenge for offside was successful, nullifying that goal, too.The Canucks had an early power play, but Hellebuyck stopped J.T. Miller’s shot.Winnipeg made it 2-0 at 14:24 after Adam Lowry fed a long pass to Roslovic and he went in alone and fired the puck high past Markstrom.Canucks forward Elias Pettersson hit a goal post late in the period.The Jets began the second period on a power-play after a late first-period Vancouver penalty and made it count with Wheeler’s goal at 1:12.The Canucks had two power plays close together late in the period, but Hellebuyck turned aside a Boeser blast and then a Pettersson slap shot.After Bo Horvat hit the crossbar behind Hellebuyck early in the third, the netminder made a number of slick saves. He managed to smother a puck that was sliding around behind him, made a quick glove save on an Adam Gaudette shot, and then splayed out to cover a puck in the last four minutes.Notes: Winnipeg defenseman Carl Dahlstrom left the game late in the second with an upper-body injury and didn’t return. … The Jets were 0-5-1 during their skid.

Mohamed Sanu Trade: Move to Patriots affects fantasy value of Calvin Ridley, Phillip Dorsett, Justin Hardy

first_imgMORE WEEK 8 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderHardy caught two passes on Atlanta’s final garbage-time drive on Sunday, but the rest of the starters were on the field, so maybe something was already in the works then. Hardy isn’t an exciting receiver — his 9.8 yards per reception definitely speaks to a guy running short routes near the sticks. But to some extent, that was working for Sanu this year. With this trade happening before waivers run in most leagues, Hardy is the most obvious possible acquisition – outside of taking a flier on Sanu if he’s available, which we’d prefer to Hardy. The potential for Matt Schaub instead of Matt Ryan as a Week 8 QB hurts Hardy, although those two late catches Sunday did come from Schaub. Unless you’re in a deep league, you can take a wait-and-see approach here, but at this point, Hardy is at most an injury away from being a possible fantasy FLEX play. Mohamed Sanu is heading to the Patriots in a trade for a second-round pick, according to multiple reports Tuesday morning. New England will be Sanu’s third NFL team after he spent multiple years in both Cincinnati and Atlanta. The Pats’ WR corps becomes more crowded with the acquisition of Sanu, as he joins Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett, and Jakobi Meyers. Atlanta had been using Sanu in a heavy role so far in 2019, and fantasy owners of Calvin Ridley will rejoice that he’s gone. Justin Hardy the most likely candidate to step into Sanu’s role as a possible sleeper.Sanu isn’t super exciting, and it’s hard to know what his role will be with the Patriots, but there are a lot of borderline fantasy starting WRs that are affected by this Tuesday morning deal. We’ll take a look at some of them here. 👀 LFG!!!!— Mohamed Sanu Sr. (@Mo_12_Sanu) October 22, 2019WEEK 8 NON-PPR RANKINGSQuarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerMohamed Sanu fantasy outlookIt seems almost certain that Sanu’s fantasy value will decline upon the move to New England. While his targets had declined since an early-season barrage, he still was averaging 4.7 receptions per game for the Falcons. Gordon has been out because of a knee injury, while Edelman (chest) and Dorsett (hamstring) have battled their own ailments, so this is probably a depth play for the Patriots. If all three of those are healthy, it’s hard to imagine Sanu catching four passes in many games going forward.Because it’s New England, though, and everything has meaning. If you already owned Sanu in your fantasy league, don’t drop him yet. There’s a chance the Patriots view him as better than we think they do — it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Sanu becomes their No. 2 receiver. If that happened, he’d be a fantasy WR3 most weeks, so you can’t bail on that without seeing a game or two of action. It seems like there’ll be a week or two the rest of the way where Sanu catches eight passes. It just might be hard to predict.There’s one other possibility to be considered: Sanu could be the passing game replacement to Rob Gronkowski. Sanu won’t line up on the end of the line like a tight end, but he fits enough of the big-bodied mold to potentially solve New England’s 2019 tight end woes. That’s another reason to keep Sanu around. If nothing else, he could become a red-zone favorite of Tom Brady.WEEK 8 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWill Calvin Ridley be helped by Mohamed Sanu trade?Every week this season, Sanu played more snaps than Ridley. There are reasons for that, like blocking, that don’t necessarily stop Ridley from being a good fantasy wide receiver. But you never like to have your player standing on the sideline. He can’t accumulate points over there, no matter how hard he tries.For reference, Sanu was actually the most-snapped Falcons’ WR, ahead of Julio Jones, too. Jones probably steps into the near every-play spot that Sanu was holding while Ridley should play more snaps every week, too. Ultimately, this doesn’t change Ridley’s fantasy value as much as we’d like it to. He was one of our most-hyped players in the preseason, as we figured he’d follow up his rookie season with a monster sophomore year. But he’s been inconsistent, just like a year ago, and Sanu’s absence won’t be the thing that solves that.Maybe Ridley gets a target more a game. He’s received six targets in all but one game this year, so maybe that number rises to seven targets in basically every game going forward. He’ll have good games, and most weeks we’ll still rank him as a WR3. But since he doesn’t play Sanu’s position, Ridley’s role in the offense will remain pretty constant. He’ll still get his six-plus targets with a deep ball look here and there. Just don’t get overly excited that Sanu’s trade means Ridley is free or something. He’ll still be boom-or-bust Calvin Ridley.Week 8 DFS Lineups: Y! Cash | Y! GPP | FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPPPhillip Dorsett fantasy outlookSomething’s gotta give in New England, and Dorsett is the most likely candidate to step out of the way. It’s not a perfect swap in and swap out for Sanu, though. Dorsett is mostly an outside guy, while Sanu spent 90 percent of his time in Atlanta this season playing the slot. We’re not even going to consider that Julian Edelman gets pushed out of the way, though, so Dorsett’s time on the field could be affected the most.Dorsett already was a borderline fantasy option, almost a poor man’s Ridley. His snaps have fluctuated more than Edelman’s or Gordon’s, suggesting he’s more expendable. Like we said with Sanu, you can’t really drop Dorsett if you have him right now because you have to see how this plays out. And technically, Dorsett has lined up more in the slot this season than he has outside because of how many of the Patriots’ formations are set up.Sanu’s acquisition also puts a damper on any hope for Jakobi Meyers having a few big weeks going forward in his rookie season. He’s seen even more slot usage than Dorsett, but Sanu is simply a more developed version of Meyers, who will now have to sit and learn from another veteran.WEEK 8: Waiver wire | FAAB planner | Trade values | Snap countsIs Justin Hardy a waiver wire pickup?Where do Sanu’s 4.7 receptions per game go in Atlanta? While they probably won’t all go to Hardy, the 27-year-old receiver appears to fit the Sanu slot role most readily. Outside of Ridley, Jones and Austin Hooper, Hardy has played the most snaps in the slot for the Falcons this season.last_img read more
