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.
What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> Coach Doc Rivers did not have a medical update on forward Danilo Gallinari, whose first season with the Clippers is looking more and more like a lost one. Gallinari sat out Sunday for the 12th game because of a non-displaced fracture of his right hand.Overall, Gallinari has played in only 19 games since the Clippers acquired him from the Denver Nuggets in a three-team trade last summer. He’s been sidelined by hand and gluteus maximus injuries totaling 50 games, and there’s no timetable for him to return to the active roster.When he has played, he has been effective for the Clippers. He averaged 15.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 32.2 minutes, or roughly what he’s averaged over his nine-season career in the NBA with the Clippers, Nuggets and New York Knicks.“Overall, of the guys we’ve missed (most), it’s ‘Gallo,’” Rivers said before the Clippers played host to the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center, another in a series of must-win games down the stretch for the playoff hopefuls. “It’s not even close.”Related Articles “We know who we have to be,” Doc Rivers said when asked about the Clippers’ ever-changing identity in 2017-18, when all their preseason plans had to be re-written on what seemed like a daily basis. “Due to the injuries, it changed (but) we know how we have to play.”Scoreboard watching?Doc Rivers doesn’t monitor the NBA standings. Or so he claimed. He did acknowledge that others let him know by how many games the ninth-place Clippers trailed in their fight to secure one of the top eight positions in the Western Conference standings by season’s end.“I really don’t look,” he said. “I have not looked at the standings in 10 years. It doesn’t matter. It really doesn’t matter. If you win the game, and keep winning the game, then things are going to work in your favor. … Just like in life, take care of yourself. Don’t ask anybody for any favors.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates Gallinari presented opposing defenses with difficult choices. If they let him roam on the perimeter, he could hurt them with his 3-point shooting and playmaking. If they tightened up on him at the 3-point line, he could drive past for layups and dunks or draw fouls.For an all-too-brief period, Rivers had a deep and formidable rotation that could cause trouble for even the deepest and most formidable opponents. Gallinari and Tobias Harris manned the forward positions with DeAndre Jordan at center and Avery Bradley and Austin Rivers in the backcourt.Milos Teodosic and Lou Williams offered Doc Rivers depth at guard.Injuries to Gallinari and Bradley altered the Clippers’ plans, however. Gallinari hasn’t played since he was hurt in the Clippers’ loss Feb. 22 to the Golden State Warriors. Bradley underwent what is likely to be season-ending surgery to repair two lower abdominal injuries last Tuesday.Bradley, Harris and backup center Boban Marjanovic were acquired Jan. 29 in the blockbuster trade that sent Blake Griffin and two others to the Detroit Pistons. Bradley played only six games with the Clippers before he was sidelined by a sports hernia injury.The Clippers coveted Bradley as a hard-nosed, defensive-minded replacement for Patrick Beverley, who underwent season-ending knee surgery Nov. 22. Adjustments have been made on the fly this season for Doc Rivers and the Clippers in the wake of so many injuries. Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters
