Although OVI recorded a growth of 2018 percent in July 10,8 compared to the same month last year, this is the smallest increase in the last three years, which indicates a significant slowdown in labor demand, according to OVI data in July, and prepared by the Zagreb Institute of Economics.Seasonally adjusted index values offer the same conclusion as the seasonally adjusted index fell 11,8 percent in July, the biggest drop on a monthly basis in 16 months. The slowdown may come from the tourism sector, given that, according to initial data, the July season did not meet all expectations.Thus, the demand for the traditionally most sought-after service occupations in the Adriatic counties in July 2018 compared to July 2017 fell or stagnated: the demand for vendors is almost identical, the demand for chefs fell by 6,6 percent, while the demand for waiters fell by as much as 32 percent. In contrast, central Croatia, which includes the City of Zagreb and Zagreb, Varaždin, Krapina-Zagorje, Međimurje, Sisak-Moslavina and Karlovac counties, recorded a 13 percent increase in labor demand compared to the same month last year, primarily for workers’ occupations. in manufacturing, computer scientists, hairdressers and nurses.The Online Vacancy Index (OVI) is a monthly index of online job vacancies developed at the Institute of Economics, Zagreb in cooperation with the MojPosao portal. The purpose of the index is to provide timely information on the current state of labor demand. The OVI index is created by simply counting the number of unique new ads whose application deadlines end in the month for which the index is calculated. Since ads published through only one portal are taken, the number of ads is expressed as an index (base year is 2015).The index is interpreted as meaning that values greater than 100 represent an increase compared to 2015, and values less than 100 decrease compared to the base year. The index was seasonally adjusted by the X-12-ARIMA method.

In Atlanta police cruisers were attacked and set ablaze as rallies spun out of control, while in the capital Washington protesters collided with Secret Service agents in heated midnight scenes in front of the White House.In Minneapolis, Derek Chauvin, the white officer filmed kneeling on the neck of a handcuffed and unarmed George Floyd for nearly nine minutes, was charged with one count of third-degree murder — unintentionally causing a death — and one count of negligent manslaughter.”This case is now ready, and we have charged it,” said county prosecutor Mike Freeman amid outrage over the latest death of an African American in police custody.But the charges failed to calm a shaken nation whose deep wounds over racial inequality have been torn open anew, and as the deadly coronavirus pandemic sets Americans further on edge. Authorities imposed a curfew Friday in Minneapolis after three nights of violent protests left parts of the city in flames. But protesters, many wearing masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus, defiantly remained on the streets, in cat-and-mouse face-offs with police who fired tear gas and flashbangs in efforts to regain control.Protester Naeema Jakes said she needed to be on the streets so she could verbally confront officers.”I need you to look in my eyes and feel me,” Jakes said. “This is pain, this is hurt.”The 46-year-old Floyd’s relatives — who spoke Friday with President Donald Trump — welcomed news of the arrest as a “step on the road to justice.” But they said they hoped for tougher charges and action against the other officers involved in Floyd’s detention and death.Freeman said the three officers were also under investigation, and that he anticipated charges would be laid. All four were fired from the police department Tuesday after video surfaced of Monday’s arrest.Troops deployed The announcement of charges came hours after hundreds of troops were deployed to the streets of Minneapolis and St Paul.Scores of buildings have been burned and looted across the so-called Twin Cities, including a police station associated with the four officers. Several protesters chanted “I can’t breathe” — Floyd’s words as Chauvin’s knee pressed on his neck.In the Minneapolis suburb of Oakdale, protesters gathered outside Chauvin’s vandalized home, raising placards to passing cars and chanting Floyd’s name.”All I can do is just cry, and cry some more,” Tara Balian, 39, told AFP. “It’s taken this long for people to realize that black lives matter.”Police in riot gear were out in force in other cities to prevent outbreaks of violence and looting, but protests took hold in Boston, Dallas, Denver, Des Moines, Houston, Las Vegas, Memphis, and Portland.Read also: Police free CNN reporter arrested live on TV covering Minneapolis protestsCharges criticized Floyd’s family issued a statement acknowledging Chauvin’s arrest, but said the charges against him were insufficient.”We want a first-degree murder charge. And we want to see the other officers arrested,” they said in a statement.”The pain that the black community feels over this murder and what it reflects about the treatment of black people in America is raw and is spilling out onto streets across America.” The third-degree charge though reflected the official autopsy saying that Floyd did not die of asphyxiation or strangulation.After attacking the protesters as “thugs” and threatening to send in federal troops to deal harshly with them, Trump shifted tone later Friday, announcing he had called Floyd’s family to express his “sorrow.” “I understand the hurt, I understand the pain. People have really been through a lot,” said the president, who stands accused of stoking tensions with a series of provocative tweets. ‘Open wound’ Former vice president Joe Biden, who is challenging Trump for the White House in November’s election, also spoke to Floyd’s family.He called for justice and said it was time to heal the “open wound” of systemic racism in the United States.Floyd’s death is reminiscent of the demise of Eric Garner, who died in police custody in New York in 2014.”Now we have to be here for George Floyd,” Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr, told protesters in New York on Friday.”Enough is enough. They have to stop coming into our neighborhoods and brutalizing and terrorizing and murdering our young men and women.”Topics : Violent protests erupted across the United States late Friday over the death of a handcuffed black man in police custody, with murder charges laid against the arresting Minneapolis officer failing to quell boiling anger.Demonstrators clashed with police for a fourth straight night in Minneapolis, but riots also raged from New York to Los Angeles in one of the worst nights of national civil unrest in years.

Published on September 26, 2018 at 10:45 pm One month into Claire Cooke’s senior season at W.T. Woodson (Virginia) High School in October 2016, the Syracuse commit heard a pop in her knee, and she fell to the ground after an illegal pick.“I thought it was her stick hitting my stick when she fell on me,” Cooke said. “But it hurt really badly, and I knew something was wrong.”She had torn her ACL, meniscus and PCL.Cooke had never broken a bone or torn anything in her body. She had never experienced an injury more significant than a sprained ankle from playing soccer.Cooke spiraled into self-doubt and frustration, but she still ended up at Syracuse (6-3, 0-2 Atlantic Coast). After redshirting her freshman season due to the injury, Cooke has started seven of SU’s nine games and registered three shots.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“She needed to learn to play the game with speed,” SU head coach Ange Bradley said. “And once she settled down and stopped trying so hard, she was able to be a really good player. She makes good reads, and she’s really aggressive in her defensive pressure.”Cooke originally began field hockey to stay in shape for soccer and lacrosse.But then she quit soccer to focus on lacrosse and field hockey. She made the varsity field hockey team as a sophomore, and then joined a club team, Rampage, to gain exposure. Although Cooke showed potential in field hockey after her freshman season, her initial experience on the club team — or lack thereof — made it seem like she wasn’t even close.Cooke felt behind. She found it hard to fit in not only because of the gap in skill level, but also because a majority of the players on the Rampage had been playing together since they were eight years old.“Her skills were pretty far from all the other girls who had played together,” Rampage assistant coach April Moshos said. “I remember her many times coming up to me and saying ‘What can I work on, what can I work on?’ Because she was so athletic and so fast, she wanted to run everywhere. So we worked on her really learning to be disciplined in her position and her really paying attention to her skill.”Cooke was behind in recruiting, too. Massachusetts and American University had showed interest, but it all waned after she had the worst tournament of her life, according to her mother, Jennifer. She was recovering from the stomach bug, but upon returning home from that tournament, she received an email from both colleges saying they were no longer interested.A month later, while watching the 2015 field hockey national championship game between SU and North Carolina, Jennifer planned how to further her daughter’s recruitment. She suggested Cooke email Syracuse.“There’s no way that they are going to email me back,” Jennifer remembered her daughter saying. “There’s no way they are going to recruit someone who just started playing, like, two years ago.”She reached out to the Orange because at that point, in November of her junior season, Cooke’s destination was shaping up to be a lower Division I or Division III school. She hadn’t played well enough in tournaments.In February of 2016, that changed. The Rampage were traveling to Florida for the Presidents’ Day Tournament. Originally, there wasn’t a spot for Cooke, but one of her teammates broke their thumb. Following the injury, Rampage head coach Starr Karl asked Cooke to fill the void. Cooke would go on to play the best field hockey Karl had ever seen her play, and to Cooke’s surprise it was in front of Bradley.“Holy sh*t,” Cooke remembered saying after the tournament. “The reigning national championship coach just emailed me.”Bradley asked Cooke to visit SU, which Cooke eventually did. It was on that trip that Bradley offered the 2016 All-State midfielder a scholarship. She accepted.But months later, in the fall of her senior season, Cooke blew out her knee, and she struggled to recover before her first season with Syracuse.Doctors cleared Cooke six months after surgery, but her full strength wasn’t back until three months into the season at SU, she said. When Cooke arrived on campus in July, about eight months after the injury, she wasn’t fully healthy. And she couldn’t do many of things that both she and Bradley expected.Once at SU, Bradley asked Cooke about her goals. The freshman didn’t have any. Bradley questioned her progress. Cooke hadn’t done anything.Bradley challenged Cooke to set small goals for herself like getting full rotation on the bike and meeting certain “marks” while running. Cooke did everything she could but decided that redshirting was in her best interest.“By the time I got to play college field hockey, the transition from playing high school to not playing, because I was out for my injury, to playing at the speed of the way that we do now, it was just too much for me,” Cooke said.Transitioning from senior captain on her high school team to a redshirt freshman on a college team filled with All-Americans and national champions was a difficult process, Cooke said.Two years removed from her injury, Cooke is now a regular fixture in the SU lineup.“I’m very, very lucky to be here,” Cooke said. “That’s for sure.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
