We, therefore, find it appropriate to constitute a Special Committee comprising of the following Secretaries at national, as well as State, level to look into the prevailing circumstances and immediately determine the necessity of the continuation of the restrictions in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir”, the SC had observed.Even after such directions, the internet restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir were extended , without the formation of Special Committee, states the plea.This, according to FMP, amounts to “wilful disobedience” of the SC directions.The contempt petition, filed on June 9, is getting listed for admission tomorrow.After the SC verdict of May 11, the J&K administration extended the internet curbs thrice – on May 27, June 17 and July 8 – citing threat of cross-border terrorism. The administration also claimed that 2G internet speed has not caused any impediment to COVID-19 control steps, online education or e-commerce.Along with the contempt plea, FMP has also filed an application for immediate restoration of 4G services in the region, stating that the denial of the same amid the pandemic and lockdown has resulted in disrupting medical services, online education and e-commerce activities.The Central government had imposed a complete communications blackout in the erstwhile state of J&K in August 2019, right after abrogation of Article 370. Five months later in January 2020, on the basis of a Supreme Court order, the services were partially restored, only at 2G speed for mobile users. Access was provided only to a selected “white-listed” sites, and social media was completely blocked.The Supreme Court had observed that indefinite suspension of internet is not permissible and restrictions on internet have to follow the principles of proportionality under Article 19(2).The blockade on social media was lifted on March 4, but the speed was retained as 2G for mobile data.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Hotel Esplanade recognized the quality of Croatian fashion design and created a collection of new uniforms for hotel reception staff

first_imgRoom Buy and use Croatian products, from agriculture to furniture, because the quality and design do not lag behind foreign furniture, in fact, they offer a better ratio of quality and price. But most importantly, by buying Croatian products you encourage the development of the local economy, and thus the retention of the local population in Croatia. The greatest power of tourism is precisely that it is not one industry, but connects various industries vertically and horizontally, and it is imperative for the tourism sector to maximally encourage and use local resources. Precisely for the reason that tourism spending is dispersed to as many local industries and participants as possible so that everyone can make a living from tourism, not just one because it is not self-sustaining.Unfortunately, our tourism closes figuratively in one “resort”, we encourage imports and foreign products, and yet we do not appreciate our quality, production, products and people. Which is insane and counterproductive, and ultimately not economically viable. Start from yourself and encourage the local economy, because maybe your son or daughter will have to move outside Croatia tomorrow because there will not be enough work and business activities in your city.It’s interesting how that circle turns and how everything is connected, right? You buy domestic and Croatian products. It’s all up to the people, start from yourself and don’t forget it’s all up to you.Related news:FASHION IN THE FUNCTION OF TOURISM PROMOTION: BUTTERFLY BOWS INSPIRED BY CROATIAN CITIESLUXURY TOURISM IS NOT GOLDEN FAUCETS BUT QUALITY DESIGN Hotel Esplanade recognized the quality of the Croatian fashion brand DeLight and achieved a successful collaboration by creating a unique collection of new uniforms for hotel reception staffThis summer, the cult Zagreb hotel Esplanade and the fashion brand DeLight joined forces and designed a new summer Jimi Hendrix for hotel reception staff. The warm and cordial welcome has recently been complemented by new dresses that exude glamor and elegance from the fashion brand DeLight and add that the collection is designed especially for hotel staff, and is made of top quality natural materials and is entirely a Croatian product.Special attention was paid to the cut of the model, which is elegant and unobtrusive, and yet glamorous to evoke all the history and tradition of the Esplanade Hotel and bring a dose of elegance to the magnificent hotel lobby. “Hotel Esplanade is synonymous with style, glamor and elegance, and has always paid special attention to impeccable service, but also design and the smallest details to provide guests with a unique experience of staying. With this project, the hotel once again supported enthusiastic young artists who often see this Zagreb beauty as an ideal backdrop for fashion shoots or simply as a muse for new creations inspired by the glamorous years of the last century. I believe that this project is just the beginning of another beautiful collaboration with local designers. ” pointed out the general manager of the hotel, Ivica Max Krizmanić.The combination of the game of different materials and warm colors and the combination of quality and comfort send a message of elegance and a warm welcome, points out Ivan Friščić, creative director of Delight “The young and talented team of Delighte found inspiration for the dresses in the luxurious history of the hotel and the unique top interior design that inspires with special charm and art deco details.. ”Concluded Friščić.CROATIAN DESIGN AS A TOURIST PRODUCT?Recognizable red and white squares, sea organ in Zadar, Revolve sofa room¸ Hotel Lone in Rovinj, Oblo children’s didactic toy and Boya crayons… Do you know what they all have in common? Croatian design recognized worldwide. But do we respect and use enough home design? Do local designers manage to break into the tourism sector at all? Ultimately, are we promoting design as a Croatian tourism product?What is the position of design in Croatia and how much as a country do we use the potential of Croatian design in the promotion of our country? This is an issue that we can talk about a lot in other countries, but in Croatia the situation is somewhat different. “Actually, the situation with design in tourism is similaror as in any other sector: the potentials of design are nowhere sufficiently exploitedpuppy. When it comes to wordsč o public institutions in tourism, whether at the local or national level, mothere will be talk of an individualpositive examples, I would say at the incident level. Design often at allwill not be present, in many casesteas are concocted and amateur rustshenja, and in sluteas when even recognizing the need for design, the designer then did not struand strategistspartner than just the last cornerwhetherć selected through public procurement according to the criterion of the lowestoffers, not according to competencies. It’s big a pity that Croatia does not have the national design strategy that many countries have. A design development policy would ensure the implementation of the design. The promotion of Croatia as a country of good design is actually happeningđa one-way by the design community. All good projects that connect tourism and design are excludedthe initiatives of designers and design associations are alivewomen.” points out Ira Payer, creative director of the Croatian Design Superstore in Zagreb.It is the essence of tourism, which is not one industry, but connects various industries vertically and horizontally. It is certainly commendable that the Esplandae hotel used the ulusge of Croatian fashion design, because we certainly have something to boast about when it comes to design, both fashion and design items for everyday use, from furniture to hotel construction design.last_img read more
