Survey: 23% of Croats are seriously planning a holiday in Croatia

first_imgThe results of the regular MasterIndex survey published today, conducted for Mastercard by the Improve agency, show that a third of Croatians are planning a holiday in the country. Cover photo: Pixabay.com However, the corona crisis and the uncertainty it brings have also affected the fact that only 23% of respondents are seriously planning a holiday in Croatia, which is as much as 33% less than last year. The coronavirus pandemic negatively affected the online purchase of airline tickets, tickets for cultural events, and travel arrangements, which approximately two-thirds of respondents bought less than usual, as expected. However, almost a third of respondents (31%) are planning a summer vacation in the country, but they are not entirely sure whether they will realize it.  The MasterIndex online survey on the habits of using financial services in Croatia and attitudes towards payment cards was conducted in April 2020 for Mastercard by the market research agency Improve, on a sample of 1.046 users of banking services in Croatia aged 18 to 55.  As the main reasons for not planning a vacation in the Adriatic, respondents point out financial insecurity (30%), the fact that they live on the coast (25%) and the impact of the pandemic (28%) – whether they do not believe in its end by early summer (17%) or in turn because they feel safer at home and try to reduce the risk of infection (11%).last_img read more

3rd series defeat in 4 tours to SENA countries

first_imgTalking PointIndia is still on top of the World Test Championship cycle. However, Kohli’s men were brought down to earth after they ran over oppositions at home and in West Indies last year.Notably, this is the 1st time Virat Kohli has been on the receiving end of a Test series whitewash as captain. This is the 3rd overseas series defeat in 4 tours since 2018 for the Indian skipper who was woefully out of form in New Zealand.The 2-0 sweep is also the 1st time since the 4-0 loss in Australia in 2012, India has been handed a series whitewash in Tests. India began the New Zealand tour on a high, winning the T20I series 5-0 but things have gone downhill since with the visitors losing the ODI series 0-3 and 0-2 in the Tests.While tall claims of being ‘the best Indian team of the last 15 years’ have been made in the past, India’s performances in SENA countries have been far from impressive. Apart from the historic 2-1 series win in Australia, India has been thrashed by South Africa (1-2 in 2018) and England (4-1 in 2018).Also Read: Arsenal Exit; Manchester United, Wolves in last 16Also Watch: Swearing-in Ceremony of Pallav Bhattacharyya as new Chairman of APSC held todaylast_img read more

After spending loads of time in communities surrounding our product, our customer’s feedback has been positive and very suggestive, with a 4.7/5 rating out of 148 customers. Here’s what one customer had to say; (5) stars “Love the user-friendly interface. Easy to book appointments. The only future improvement I would think can be done to Taper, would be adding push notifications maybe a couple hours prior to appointments made. A thought would be maybe adding it to our apple wallet app as a reminder”How do users access the platform?Customers can access our platform on the Apple Store or Google Play Store by searching Taper. be_ixf; php_sdk; php_sdk_1.4.18 https://www.blackenterprise.com/book-hairstylists-barbers-and-make-up-artists-with-taper-app/ https://www.blackenterprise.com/book-hairstylists-barbers-and-make-up-artists-with-taper-app/ Black Enterprise: In three sentences or less, tell me about your background.I’m an African American, millennial, passionate entrepreneur from Washington, D.C now living in downtown Los Angeles. I’m also an HBCU advocate, Bowie State graduate, and the founder of HBCU Buzz, a media outlet with a primary focus on HBCUs.Why did you start Taper?While working on Capitol Hill in DC, I was allotted a 20-30-minute lunch break, which I used to get a haircut near my office. The weekly issue would be using portions of that time to stop at the ATM for cash and other tasks I needed to get done within that small window of time. I developed Taper to not only solve those two problems but modernize the oldest pastime in the urban community, the barbershop and salon. The inspiration was geared around time management and fast-paced environments.With so many beauty platforms in the market, how do you stack up against the competitors?We leverage affordability, access, community, and dope features. We stack up well against our competitors.(Image: Taper) There are tons of platforms that allow you to find beauty services, so what makes Taper different?
