Survey: 90% of renters performed worse than last year

first_imgAs we announced, Nedo Pinezić and David Peranić announced a survey for renters of family accommodation, in order to better analyze the situation on the ground between renters, and concrete steps on how and where to move forward in the future. The survey was conceived through five questions. To the first question: Do you work seasonally or all year round ?, the majority (74.2%) answered that they are seasonal renters, while 25.2% of respondents declared themselves as year-round renters. Although these data do not say much, because somewhere the season is longer or shorter, and there is no exact geographical division, nor by the quality of accommodation, which also depends on the length of the season. However, for the purposes of the survey and the interpretation of the results of the surveyed renters, we know that these are mostly seasonal renters. How much of a drop have you had this season in the number of nights? – is a question that provides more specific information. Photo: Maxim Goncharenok, Survey results: 90% of renters performed worse than last year The survey is over, and we bring the results of the same. The survey was completed by 1.669 renters, which is a large sample, in line with the previous inertia of renters for any initiatives or surveys. Source: Dantes At the end of the survey, 70% of renters concluded that they are still satisfied with this tourist season, according to May 15 forecasts. center_img On the other hand, 8.7% of the surveyed renters achieved the same results as last year (within 10%), and a small part, or 2.2% of the respondents, achieved a growth of 10% and more compared to last year. For the end, Pinezić and Peranić are inviting tonight (Wednesday) from 20.30 pm to Dantes FB Live where they will comment live on the results. Thus, 36% of respondents worked significantly worse than last year or had a drop of 50%. The second part, more precisely 30% of them, performed worse than last year in the context of a decline of 20 to 25%. 22.9% of them achieved more than 60% worse results than last year. 28.2% Same price as last year22.9% Prices less by 20% than last year19.9% Prices less by 10% than last year13.6% Prices less by 30% than last year7.4% Prices less by 40% than last year6.2% Prices less by 50% and more than last year1.9% Prices more than last year – We have an extremely large sample, which allows us to obtain objective results, Pinezić and Peranić point out and add: – Some of the answers were very short, and there were indeed extensive answers. In the coming weeks, we will read and systematize all the answers (there are close to 7.000 entries), and we will publish separate articles for each question as the conclusion of the survey and our comment.”. When it comes to prices, we know that this year the accommodation was filled at much lower prices, both in hotel and private accommodation. And this is shown by the survey data, where about 70% of respondents reduced prices.last_img read more

SIS may appeal High Court judgement on ARC data rights

first_img John Williamson to oversee UK Tote Group’s international growth August 28, 2020 Betfred counters Oppenheimer bid in race to rescue Phumelela August 26, 2020 Related Articles The High Court case around data rights between the two main horseracing broadcasters to the betting industry has come to an end, with  Sports Information Services (SIS) being found guilty of breaching the confidentiality of Arena Racing Company’s Raceday Data, but not on the more serious charges of conspiracy by unlawful means or copyright infringement of database rights. SIS said it may still appeal the judgement.The court case goes back to the launch of The Racing Partnership (TRP) in January 2017 when Ladbrokes, Coral and Betfred dragged its heels about taking the new service. TRP was set up to exclusively license media rights from horserace meetings at Arena Racing Company (ARC) and other independent racecourses, direct to retail bookmakers and other betting operators. Customers including William Hill, Paddy Power and the majority of independent operators contracted directly with TRP to receive a media rights package comprising live data and audio-visual coverage for fixtures from six racecourses (Doncaster, Lingfield Park, Southwell, Royal Windsor, Wolverhampton and Worcester) from the start of 2017.The retail estates of Ladbrokes, Coral and Betfred did not sign up until later that summer when TRP’s rights portfolio increased to cover 22 racetracks. In the interim period the bookmakers decided to compile enough data from other sources to create an unofficial service from the Tote’s presence on-course and other sources to be supplied by SIS, without any of them paying TRP. TRP took immediate legal action and commenced High Court proceedings against them in January 2017.The Hon Mr Justice Zacaroli dismissed the conspiracy and database infringements, but said that SIS had breached the confidentiality of ARC’s Raceday Data. He argued that a reasonable person in the position of SIS would have appreciated that the Tote acquired the information in circumstances imposing obligations of confidence, which would be breached by use of that information otherwise than by the Tote for the limited purpose of pool betting.In an issued statement, SIS said: “We are naturally happy that the judge has found in our favour on two of the three claims and rejected any suggestion of conspiracy by unlawful means, and the allegation of infringement of copyright and database rights made against SIS. We have taken note of his judgement that a technical breach of confidence occurred in regard to our use of Raceday Data emanating from TRP courses, whilst acknowledging that SIS did take precautions, and acted upon a warranty provided by the Tote, which had supplied the data in question.”The company added: “We will be reviewing this judgement and any possible appeal with our advisers.”Understandably, ARC CEO Martin Cruddace has gone in hard following the judgment: “We would like to thank the Hon. Mr Justice Zacaroli for the diligence and work with which he has clearly approached his judgment in a complex case. We are pleased that the High Court has unequivocally recognised the validity and enforceability of our exclusive rights in the Raceday Data created and collected on racecourses and therefore owned by them. We welcome the fact that the judgment gives a ruling on the rights in and protection of Raceday Data which is important to all of British Horse Racing.“It is clear and, in our view, beyond any reasonable dispute that Ladbrokes, Coral and Betfred were only able to not enter into media rights agreements with TRP, on proper commercial terms (between Jan 1st and late July 2017), because of their access to Raceday data unlawfully supplied by SIS, and it follows that SIS is responsible for the very significant damages to which TRP is entitled.“We will now expeditiously commence the proceedings to determine the quantum of damages and will continue to monitor any infringements of our rights and take appropriate action wherever such infringements are found.” Share Share Submit Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020 StumbleUponlast_img read more

Williams/SCNG)ExpandDuring the 2011 NBA lockout, LeBron James found different ways to keep busy. One was to go back to his high school in Akron, St. Vincent-St. Mary, and practice with the football team.There, he first met Parris Campbell, who would later go on to play for James’ favorite college football team, Ohio State. The two have stayed in close contact since then, with the Lakers star going on Twitter to congratulate Campbell after big performances.It’s not something that the wide receiver Campbell, in Pasadena with the Buckeyes for the Rose Bowl, takes for granted.Related Articles UCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers NCAA cancels fall championships, although some football conferences march on Alexander: Was there more to Pac-12 delay than health and safety?

He was transitioning from running back to wide receiver, and was growing frustrated by the position change.Campbell ran into James at a St. Vincent-St. Mary basketball game, and the three-time NBA champion offered Campbell some advice.“He just always told me to never give up on myself and to continue to be great; that I had greatness all around me and continue to blossom,” Campbell recalled. “So put the work in and never give up.”After that, Campbell developed into one of Ohio State’s top receivers. He was named to the All-Big Ten first team after a senior season in which he made 79 receptions for 992 yards and 11 touchdowns, all career highs.After Campbell’s breakout 147-yard, two-touchdown performance against Tulane in September, James was quick to react on Twitter.“I [see] you today lil bro!!” James tweeted at Campbell. “Keep shining #OH #GoBucks #AkronBoys.” “It means a lot, just because two kids from the same area, grew up experiencing the same things, went to the same high school, it’s huge,” the senior Campbell said. “Just being a kid from Akron, everyone there looks up to him, wants to do the things that he’s done. I have an opportunity to go on a different stage, the NFL, try to continue some of those things he’s given back to the city.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
