FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg News:China, the world’s biggest carbon emitter, is poised to install a record amount of solar-power capacity this year, prompting researchers to boost forecasts as much as 80 percent.About 54 gigawatts will be put in place this year, Bloomberg New Energy Finance said Monday, raising a forecast of more than 30 gigawatts made in July. That amount of additional capacity would likely surpass all the solar energy generated in Japan in 2017.“The amount of rooftop solar plants and projects aimed at easing poverty were more than expected and developers rushed to build some ground-mounted solar projects before they have been allocated subsidies,” said Yvonne Liu, a BNEF analyst in Beijing.The growth of the market has benefited top panel producers, including JinkoSolar Holding Co. and Trina Solar Ltd. China installed 43 gigawatts of solar power in the first nine months of 2017, already above the 34.5 gigawatts for all of last year.China has been the world’s biggest solar market since 2013. It surpassed Germany as the country with the most installed photovoltaic power capacity two years ago.CCB International Securities Ltd. raised its forecast for China’s solar power capacity to 55 gigawatts from 40 gigawatts for 2018, according to a Nov. 17 note.Half of all additions to China’s electricity generating capacity since 2013 have been renewables or nuclear, according to the International Energy Agency. By 2040, the IEA sees renewables accounting for 40 percent of total power generation. Coal, which contributes about 67 percent of generation now, will fall to 40 percent over that period.More: China on Pace for Record Solar-Power Installations China Solar Surge: 80% Increase Seen
Croatia ranks fourth in the world on this infamous scale, and Haiti, Venezuela and BiH are in a worse situation. Also on the scale below Croatia are Romania, Yemen, Moldova, Northern Macedonia and Serbia. But let’s get back to the topic. Croatia is the fourth in the world after the departure of the educated “Brain drain” (brain drain) is a specific form of population migration that refers to the departure of highly educated professionals, scientists and intellectuals of a country abroad. Logical, brain drain it occurs from underdeveloped or developing countries to developed countries. When we talk about human resources in tourism as well as the burning issue of the workforce in our tourism, a big “fight” is being waged and how to attract and retain existing staff in middle and senior management. A topic that is little talked about in public, and which is also extremely important and more than current. In a 4-star hotel where high quality of service is expected, and accompanied by a “high” price of accommodation, the receptionist can not work for a salary of 5.500 kuna, without knowing two or three foreign languages, has extensive experience, high communication skills etc.… One with the other just doesn’t go. Quality tourism, the future and sustainability are not built on labor imports. The Economist magazine, using data from the World Economic Forum (WEF) according to the Global Competitiveness (WEF) report for 2018, published on its LinkedIn profile an infographic listing the countries where brain drain occurs most. The future is not built on the import of labor, and without domestic labor there is no sustainable development In Germany March 01, 2020 new laws for skilled labor come into force in That is why a new law has been passed which expands the possibilities for qualified professionals from countries outside the European Union to come to Germany for employment. Germany is chronically short of skilled workers / Croatian citizens in Austria will be able to find employment without a work permit Since the beginning of July, Austria has been opening its doors to work and the restriction on the Austrian labor market has been lifted for Croatian citizens. Until now, workers from Croatia did not have full open access to the Austrian labor market and it is almost impossible to get a work permit in Austria today, but now everything is changing. From 1 July all Croatian citizens in Austria will be able to find employment without a work permit. With that date, Germany will be able to immigrate not only skilled workers and professionals, but also those who would be employed there according to their qualifications. And as we all know, it has been happening in Croatia for a couple of years, where a good part of the citizens moved to some other countries, looking for a brighter future, even though they had their housing and business issues resolved. However, they were not satisfied with the quality of life in Croatia, not with the opportunities for professional growth and development, with the general state of society, ie they did not see their future and perspective in Croatia. The reasons are many, and the facts are exact. It will be more than interesting to follow the Census to be held in 2021, especially since unofficial estimates say that Croatia’s population has fallen below 4,000.000. Source: The Economist, If we want to build tourism on quality, we also need quality workers, and they, as in any sector, cost money. The borders are open and the law of the market is simple.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Drake University track and field team got its outdoor season off to a great start with a strong showing against some of the best teams in the nation at the Arkansas Spring Invitational on Saturday, March 26.”We had some amazing performances today with athletes stepping up in multiple events,” said Drake head coach Natasha Kaiser-Brown. “To perform so well this early in the season sets us up for some great performances as the season goes on.”Sprinter Pierce Vincent (Fayetteville, Ga.) set the tone for the day with a pair of personal bests in the 100 and 200 meters while anchoring the Bulldogs’ 4×100-meter relay to a second place finish after winning its heat. Vincent came in second in the 100 meters with the third-fastest time in school history at 10.40. Vincent finished behind only professional Wallace Spearmon in a meet that featured athletes from Arkansas, Missouri, Mississippi and Oklahoma State . He also clocked the fourth-fastest 200 meters in school history at 21.18. Demetrius Shelton finished ninth and 10th, respectively, in both races.The women’s team’s jumpers continued their outstanding year as Kayla Bell (Bolingbrook, Ill.) won the triple jump with a leap of 40-4, just shy of her own school record. Taryn Rolle (Nassau, The Bahamas) finished second with a personal best mark of 39-10.5 that ranks second all-time in Drake history. Bell also recorded a personal best in the long jump of 19-3.5 to finish third with the sixth-best jump in program history.In the hurdles, Virginia Hill (Haymarket, Va.) recorded a personal best of 59.86 in the 400-meter hurdles to finish fifth while Mary Young (Urbandale, Iowa) was ninth. Young finished sixth in the 100-meter hurdles in 13.74.The Bulldogs return to action next weekend as the team splits its talents between the Texas Relays, Stanford Invitational and San Francisco Distance Carnival.2016 Arkansas Spring InvitationalFayetteville, Ark. – John McDonnell FieldMarch 26, 2016Drake Individual Women’s Results100 Meters23.
