HoReCa Adria – Fair for the preparation of the new tourist season

first_imgThe fair of equipment for hotels, apartments, restaurants and catering facilities HoReCa Adria will be held from Thursday, 10.11. to Saturday, 12.11. in Opatija, in the Marino Cvetković Sports Hall. More than 70 exhibitors from Croatia and abroad will present over 5.000 products and services, of which we single out 15 presentations of the latest equipment on the Croatian market, with a rich accompanying program of lectures and educationThe key autumn term from November 10 to 12, when the impressions from last season are still fresh, is a great opportunity for all employees in tourism to get acquainted with new market trends and plan investments in facilities, in order to achieve even better tourist results next season. .HoReCa Adria is the first such fair in the Kvarner area, and the excellent response of visitors at last year’s edition of the fair is the best proof that this is exactly the kind of event the Kvarner region lacked, but also much wider. An even larger number of exhibitors has been announced for this year, more than 70 of them from Croatia, Italy, Slovenia, Austria and Serbia, who will present the full range of equipment and services for entrepreneurs in tourism in Opatija.More information about the HoReCa Adria fair can be found at official websiteslast_img read more

Brain caught ‘filing’ memories during rest

first_imgPinterest Share on Twitter Memories formed in one part of the brain are replayed and transferred to a different area of the brain during rest, according to a new UCL study in rats.The finding suggests that replay of previous experiences during rest is important for memory consolidation, a process whereby the brain stabilises and preserves memories for quick recall in the future. Understanding the physiological mechanism of this is essential for tackling amnesiac conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, where memory consolidation is affected.Lead researcher, Dr Freyja Ólafsdóttir (UCL Cell & Developmental Biology), said: “We want to understand how a healthy brain stores and accesses memories as this will give us a window into how conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease disrupt the process. We know people with Alzheimer’s have difficulty recalling the recent past but can often readily remember childhood memories, which seem more resilient. The parts of the brain we studied are some of the first regions affected in Alzheimer’s and now we know they are also involved in memory consolidation.” Share Share on Facebookcenter_img LinkedIn Email The study, published today in Nature Neuroscience and funded by the Wellcome Trust and Royal Society, investigated the role of sleep in memory consolidation by simultaneously studying two areas of the brain as the rats rested following activity.Six rats each ran for 30 minutes on a six metre long track before resting for 90 minutes. During rest, the team studied the responses of place cells in the hippocampus, where memories are formed, and grid cells in the entorhinal cortex, where the memories were found to transfer to.The response of the place cells showed that the rats re-ran the track in their minds as they rested but did so at speeds 10-20 times faster than they experienced in reality. The same replay happened almost simultaneously, with a 10 millisecond delay, in grid cells located in a different part of the brain, suggesting that the rats’ memories transferred from one part of the brain to another.Study supervisor, Dr Caswell Barry (UCL Cell & Developmental Biology), said: “This is the first time we’ve seen coordinated replay between two areas of the brain known to be important for memory, suggesting a filing of memories from one area to another. The hippocampus constantly absorbs information but it seems it can’t store everything so replays the important memories for long term storage and transfers them to the entorhinal cortex, and possibly on to other areas of the brain, for safe-keeping and easy access.”The scientists plan to investigate memory transfer to other areas of the brain and replay in rats with Alzheimer’s disease to better understand the memory consolidation mechanism and the link between quality of sleep and amnesiac conditions.last_img read more

Chairman, Nigeria Football Supporters Club (NFSC) Vincent Okumagba has called on the Ministry of Youth and Sports to assist the body financially to enable it send a large contingent of its members to Morocco to cheer the home-based Super Eagles at the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN).In a chat with www.busybuddiesng.com, Okumagba acknowledged the support of the Sports Ministry during the last CHAN in Rwanda, and like Oliver Twist, asked for more.“For the Supporters Club, definitely we are going to be there (in Morocco) but funding is an issue right now,” he disclosed.“The last edition that we attended (Rwanda 2016), the Honourable Minister (Solomon Dalung) assisted the Supporters Club to be there. And for this one, we also ran to him and promises have been made. We want to believe that before the commencement of the tournament on 13 January, something will happen.Okumagba also revealed that the vociferous Supporters Club is planning to storm Morocco with a strong 70-man delegation.“We are planning; we have submitted about 70 names to the Moroccan Embassy for visas, and I want to believe that in a couple of days, the visas should be out, because everything that was needed for those visas to be processed had been done.“So we are very hopeful that visas will be issued while we put the other preparations in top gear to ensure that our members are able to travel to Morocco for the tournament.”Nigeria will face Rwanda in her opening Group C tie on Monday, 15 January in Tangier before confronting 2014 Champions, Libya, four days later at the same venue. The home Eagles will wrap up the group phase with a game against Equatorial Guinea in Agadir on 23 January.
