Bill Gates Says Measurement Is A Key To Success

first_img“Without feedback from precise measurement,” Bill Gates quotes author William Rosen, “invention is ‘doomed to be rare and erratic.’ With it, invention becomes ‘commonplace.’”In an article he wrote in The Wall Street Journal last month, Gates says measurement is just as important to improving the human condition as it is to promoting invention, yet measurement can be very difficult to gather and is missing surprisingly often.“Historically, foreign aid has been measured in terms of the total amount of money invested, but not by how well it performed in actually helping people,” says Gates. “Despite innovation in measuring teacher performance world-wide, more than 90 percent of educators in the US still get zero feedback on how to improve. An innovation, whether it’s a new vaccine or an improved seed, can’t have an impact unless it reaches the people who will benefit from it. We need innovations in measurement to find new, effective ways to deliver those tools and services to the clinics, family farms and classrooms that need them.”The Millennium Development Goals, he says, set 2015 as the deadline for achieving specific minimum levels of improvement in health, education and income, but unlike previous declarations, “Millennium goals were backed by a broad consensus, were clear and concrete, and brought focus to the highest priorities.”He sites Ethiopia as a good example of success due to measurement. A land where it is customary to wait a month after births before naming babies since so few survived, Ethiopia set itself the Millennium goal of reducing child mortality by two-thirds. Based on a healthcare initiative performed in Kerala, India, Ethiopia created staffed health posts to record immunizations, disease cases and mortality data. Healthcare workers also began making home visits to ensure each household had a malaria bed net, pit toilet and basic health and safety practices, and to provide regular checkups for pregnant women.Today, says Gates, because of measurements we know that Ethiopia is on track to achieve their child mortality goal by 2015 – and babies are being named at birth.Copyright ©2013Look to the Starslast_img read more

French Police Remove 1016 Migrants from Paris Camp

Rabat – French police forces removed over 1,000 Sudanese, Somalian, and Eritrean migrants from the “Millénaire” migrant camp in Paris on Wednesday morning. The regional prefect Michel Cadot announced the number of migrants dislocated from Millénaire, which is Paris’s largest camp, totaled 1,016, including 11 minors and 64 women, children, and elderly people.Cadot announced that the migrants would be split into two groups and sent to facilities in Paris and another facility in the Île-de-France region. Furthermore, he stated that two additional camps in Paris will be “evacuated” within the next week: Canal Saint-Martin and Porte de la Chapelle. An estimated 800 Afghani, Sudanese, and Eritrean migrants currently reside in the two camps.The camp dislocation followed a battle in which Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo refused to allow security forces to break down the camp, which was ordered by French Minister of the Interior Gerard Collomb. While Collomb has said that some migrants must be expelled from France, Hidalgo has called for increased efforts to integrate migrants into society.The French minister of the interior ordered the “evacuation” of 2,300 migrants, many of whom travel through Morocco en route to Europe, at the Millénaire and other camps around Paris on Wednesday, May 23.The camp breakdown on Wednesday marks the 37th migrant camp “evacuation” in Paris since 2015. Approximately 28,000 migrants have been dislocated from the camps during the same period. read more

Sunwing pilots win wage boost more benefits in new collective agreement

TORONTO — Pilots at Sunwing Airlines have ratified their first collective agreement with the charter and vacation air carrier.The Canadian Auto Workers Union, which represents the 150 pilots, say the agreement was approved by a margin of 78%.The three-year deal includes an across-the-board wage increase of between one to two per cent per year each year, plus an incremental increase based on years of service, retroactive to Dec. 1, 2012.The CAW says it will also see increases to pensions, annual sick days, maternity benefits and the creation of a work-sharing program as part of an effort to reduce layoffs during the low season.The deal also includes 40 to 50 new hires, not including 19 seasonal pilots that have recently been offered permanent contracts.The CAW says the agreement will also address workers’ concerns over pilot fatigue and scheduling issues.“The solidarity of the members and the bargaining committee’s hard work helped ensure a strong agreement for our pilot group while allowing Sunwing Airlines to remain competitive over the long term,” said Capt. Dave Matkovich, president of CAW Local 7378.The pilots had been without a contract since December and became members of the CAW in January 2012.The union, Canada’s largest private sector union, represents 11,600 members in the air transportation industry.Last month, a tentative deal was reached between Sunwing and the union representing its 900 flight attendants.It is also the first collective agreement for the flight attendants after they joined the Canadian Union of Public Employees last year.Sunwing Airlines operates from bases in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City.It is a subsidiary of Sunwing Travel Group and a sister company to Sunwing Vacations, Signature Vacations and SellOffVacations. read more

Hedgehogs disappear from British countryside as badgers are devouring them

Interestingly, there were fewer hedgehogs where there were badgers, their main predator.Researchers said the mammals were facing a “perfect storm”, and that there is something “fundamentally wrong with our countryside”.First author Ben Williams, a PhD student at the University of Reading, explained: “Although hedgehogs were generally widely distributed, they were actually found at a worryingly low number of sites.”The analysis, published in the journal Scientific Reports, was funded by the People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) and the British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS). It is the most comprehensive to date. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Hedgehogs are disappearing from the British countryside because they are being devoured by badgers, a study has found.Researchers said the mammals, which are increasingly having to move to urban areas, are now present in just a fifth of the countryside.Regular destruction of habitat with heavy agricultural machinery – as well as the use of pesticides in intensive farming – is also said to be wiping out the worms, beetles, slugs, caterpillars, earwigs and millipedes it feeds on.In the first study of its kind scientists found the creature inhabited just 21 percent of 261 rural sites surveyed across England and Wales.They used ‘footprint tracking tunnels’ to show the nocturnal animals are more thinly spread in the UK than previously feared. read more

At least four people were killed. The government quickly did an about-face and called off the planned price increases.Lafontant, who took office in February 2017, had faced widespread criticism even before the spasm of violence. read more

Ausdrill raises fighting fund for future contract mining demand

first_imgLeading mining contractor, Ausdrill Ltd, has announced a major capital raising to raise gross proceeds of up to A$149.5 million, to be used as growth capital to fund purchases of plant and equipment for projects commencing in the next 12 months or projects which have been tendered for. This mainly includes projects in Africa and Australia. The group already has a number of projects in Burkina, Mali, Zambia and Tanzania.Services include open pit and underground mining, drill and blast, and grade control.Ausdrill stated that its business has experienced strong growth in recent years and, assuming continued strength in the resources sector, it anticipates a high level of tender activity in the next year. As a result of the resources sector’s increased levels of demand for new equipment, lead times for delivery of new equipment have increased. The funds will assist Ausdrill in capitalising on opportunities as they arise by, among other things, having equipment available (or on order) at the time of tender. Mining contract terms range from 2 years to up to 9 years, with an average term of some 4-5 years. Contract values range from A$20 million to over A$500 million per project. Ausdrill focuses on high growth end markets such as gold, iron ore, copper and nickel.The specific equipment being bought by Ausdrill includes Caterpillar 100 t class trucks; exploration, grade control and probe rigs; drill and blast rigs; excavators; truck trays and dozers. There will also be an equity contribution to the AUMS joint venture to fund any required expansion of the underground business. Funding will also be made available to facilitate further acquisitions if opportunities arise.last_img read more

MineSight Blast software to help redefine blasting

first_imgMineSight says it is bringing precision and dependability to one of mining’s most challenging steps with a new drill and blast management utility. “MineSight Blast will revolutionise the design and execution of drill and blast plans from within MineSight 3D. Within a single interface, you will be able to design drill patterns, apply blasting parameters to holes and do the tie-in of a shot.”“MineSight Blast will redefine blasting,” said Mark Gabbitus, MineSight Product Manager-Operations. “A bad blast can undo all of the good work done by geologists and engineers to develop a robust block model and mine plan. “So it is vitally important that the blast design and execution minimises error and interprets the effects when things do not go to plan.” Incorporating a modern design interface, MineSight Blast will design and manage drill and blast patterns interactively on screen while storing all of the design (and actual) information in a SQL database.Direct links to drill fleet management and explosive vendor systems will enable easy automation of data transfer between the design tool and the operators. Users can see what’s happening in the pit in near real time and make intelligent business decisions. MineSight Blast will link directly to MineSight Atlas so mine planners can update their schedule based on actual drillholes and lengths to get more accurate times.Several factors affect the quality of a blast. The geology and geotechnical characteristics of the rock are unchangeable, but the blast pattern parameters, such as hole spacing, depth, diameter and amount/type of explosive used, can be modified. The ability to change these parameters dynamically in response to as-drilled information is critical to achieving good fragmentation. Future releases of MineSight Blast will include blast simulation, analysis and optimization to reduce the workload on drill and blast engineers and enable them to change or optimise blasting parameters at critical stages.Starting later in 2014, MineSight Blast will be released in a phased approach with Version 1 set to include enhanced drill pattern design features, such as offset rows, volume of influence solids and naming rules. Versions 2 and 3 will see the addition of blast design tools, pattern tie-in options (manual and automatic) along with simulation and optimisation options.last_img read more

Indian stock market among the worst performers says analyst

first_imgThe Bombay Stock Exchange in Mumbai on Feb 29, 2016 (representational image).IANSEven as Indian markets are trying to shrug off the impact of the turmoil in the banking industry, ratings firm Credit Suisse has said India is one of the worst performing markets among major economies. Further dampening the outlook, Credit Suisse has said that the Indian market remains expensive in terms of valuations and that it has seen more earnings downgrades than its peers.India’s benchmark indexes are trading higher on Wednesday, with BSE Sensex gaining more than 200 points and the Nifty rising to the 10,200 levels in the morning trade. Sensex snapped a five-day losing streak on Tuesday.”We are still underweight at this point in time. The reason for being underweight are firstly valuations and secondly earnings revisions. On valuations, India has been in what we call the expensive four club, which is the four most overvalued markets in the region,” Credit Suisse expert Sakthi Siva told CNBC TV18.Siva said India is the second worst performing market among major economies. Siva added that India has seen almost 3-4 consecutive years of earnings downgrades, compared with strong earnings upgrades in other major economies. “So, India is still trailing the other markets in terms of earnings revisions.”For long periods, the investment boom in India was inversely proportionate to the macro-economic climate and the GDP growth rates. The beginning of the year saw the market booming despite grim predictions over the economy’s expansion.The investor sentiment was unaffected by low GDP growth figures and gloomy forecasts following the twin impact of demonitization and the rollout of GST. Markets soared despite macro-economic fundamentals and corporate profit expectations remaining weak, prompting analysts to ask why the investors kept pumping up the stocks when a dash of caution was required.There are no mysteries when healthy GDP growth rate or growth projections have a positive impact on the markets. As the economy expands, corporate houses look to sell more of their products and services, resulting in higher profits and earnings per share. International fund managers also turn bullish on the country as they constantly look for “emerging” players.However, that was not the case, at least until the third quarter GDP numbers came on February 28. The Q3 numbers showed that the Indian economy returned to momentum in the October-December period with a 7.2 percent growth. The data released by the Central Statistical Office (CSO) showed the quarterly growth was the fastest in five quarters.If the Indian investors are largely unmindful of skewed the price to earnings ratio, that means the market is driven by liquidity, in the absence of credible and viable investment alternatives. Another possible reason behind the shift away from other asset classes is the demonitization drive that hunted down illicit money.After factoring in this aspect, the Economic Survey 2018 still warned that the macro-economic fundamentals will have to become stronger to justify and sustain the stock boom.”Beyond ERPs (equity risk premium), sustaining current stock valuations in India also requires future earnings performance to rise to meet still high expectations. And this outlook, in turn, depends on whether a significant economic rebound is, this time, well and truly around the corner,” the survey said.last_img read more

Obamas unlikely Iran deal MVP Energy Secretary Moniz

first_img Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Clean energy: Why it matters for Arizona Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall “Moniz is speaking at a fairly high level of generality,” Albright said. “But the devil’s in the details.”Moniz’s role at the center of the deal began in February after Tehran informed Washington that Ali Akbar Salehi, Iran’s atomic energy chief, would be joining the next round of talks. Obama quickly settled on Moniz as a counterpart of Salehi. It turned out the two had something in common: they’d overlapped at MIT, where Moniz taught for decades and Salehi studied nuclear engineering.The two had never met at MIT, but immediately clicked after meeting on the shores of Lake Geneva, in Switzerland, officials said. A few days later, Moniz and Salehi opted to dine together at a hotel, trading stories about mutual colleagues from MIT. That broke the ice for others on the U.S. and Iranian teams to get acquainted away from the tense negotiating table.“He’s not one who’s very attached to protocol, and he very quickly was joking with the Iranians. The Iranians responded extremely well to that,” said Robert Malley, the senior director at the White House’s National Security Council and part of the U.S. negotiating team. “Over time, the Iranians learned that behind that appearance was someone who would fight fiercely for what he thought was in our interests.” How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation FILE – In this Sept. 22, 2014 file photo, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz speaks during the general conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, at the International Center in Vienna, Austria.

Now with his diplomatic legacy on the line, President Barack Obama is turning to Moniz to help sell the deal to a highly skeptical Congress. (AP Photo/Ronald Zak, File) WASHINGTON (AP) — As negotiators were grasping for a landmark nuclear deal, they hit a roadblock over Iran’s once-secret enrichment site at Fordo, a fortified bunker buried deep in a mountainside — potentially impervious to U.S. or Israeli airstrikes.The United States wanted the facility shuttered, but Iran’s supreme leader insisted no nuclear facilities would close. Then, an American nuclear physicist with an untamable mane of wiry gray hair came up with a compromise: Allow the Iranians to tell their hard-liners they were keeping Fordo, but convert it to a research facility whose centrifuges would churn out harmless medical isotopes instead of enriched uranium. Comments   Share   Ernest Moniz, the eccentric MIT professor-turned-U.S.-Energy-secretary, by all accounts played a pivotal role in reaching the historic nuclear accord. Now with his diplomatic legacy on the line, President Barack Obama is turning to Moniz to help sell the deal to a highly skeptical Congress.Moniz blitzed morning political talk shows on Sunday, making Obama’s case alongside Secretary of State John Kerry. This week, he’ll appear before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, where doubts about the nuclear pact run high.In between, aides say, the secretary is squeezing in one-on-one briefings with lawmakers ahead of a likely congressional attempt to scuttle the deal. While juggling his “day job” running the Energy Department, he’s also lobbying foreign energy ministers who are similarly suspicious of the deal.“Secretary Moniz is an everyman scientist,” said Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., who has received multiple Iran briefings from Moniz. “He can translate those nuclear details in a way that even senators can understand.”Yet not everyone is content watching nuclear science watered down into talking points. David Albright, a former weapons inspector who runs the Institute for Science and International Security, said Moniz and his colleagues have been downplaying the deal’s vulnerabilities, such as that its enrichment restrictions sunset after 10 years, at which point Iran could race for a bomb.center_img “He was the only person at MIT at the time who was really serious about nuclear energy,” said Laughlin, a Nobel laureate. “It’s really a political hot-potato, so you’ve got to like that stuff.

The talks were nearing an end, meaning Moniz would potentially miss the announcement of the deal and ensuing celebration. Although Moniz said he didn’t mind skipping it, his colleagues insisted, and he returned to Vienna less than 24 hours after he left.“He was very moved by it. He’s proud of his Portuguese heritage,” said Kevin Knobloch, Moniz’s chief of staff.Moniz, 70, was born in Fall River, Massachusetts, and received his doctorate at Stanford University before joining MIT’s physics faculty in 1973. He served in the Clinton administration as undersecretary of energy and a top White House aide.Robert Laughlin, who studied at MIT while Moniz was on faculty in the 1970s and now teaches physics at Stanford, said he’s not surprised Moniz ended up a player in high-stakes diplomacy.

Whats the first thing that goes through your mind

The paths these two franchises have taken since that SuperBowl are vastly different.The Steelers have kept their roster largely intact. Six oftheir Super Bowl starters on offense remain with the team,including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wide receiverHines Ward. On defense, every player who started againstthe Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII is still on the roster. In all, twenty-four Steelers from the 53 players they hadin Tampa back in ’09 are still with the team. Probably apretty good reason why the Steelers are 27-14 since andhave already made a return trip to the Super Bowl, losinglast season’s finale to Green Bay in Arlington, Texas.The Cardinals have had a bit more roster turnover in thelast two-plus seasons. And yes, that is anunderstatement. Only ten players from the Cardinals’ 53-man roster heading into their first Super Bowl remain, andonly two defensive starters (Darnell Dockett and AdrianWilson) are still with the franchise.The others still around are Larry Fitzgerald, LyleSendlein, Deuce Lutui, Levi Brown, Michael Adams, CalaisCampbell, Early Doucet and Brandon Keith.

With its deep valleys to its south and high mountains to its north, it is a rare plateau in the high mountain region. Designed by Mark Hollinger, Partner at JMP Golf Design Group in the United States, the golf course spans an area of more than 46.5 hectares of forest, with 4.6 acres of highland lake.

Savour boat-fresh seafoodStraight out of the Adriatic Sea, the fishermen’s catch on the menu in most restaurants is incredibly fresh. Get in the mood by joining local shoppers checking out the morning fish market on the western fringes of Diocletian’s Palace. Return here at night to dine on simple fried fish at Buffet Zlatna Ribica (Kraj Svete Marije 8) or take things up a notch next door at fine dining establishment, Nostromo. A heaving platter of shellfish starts from 240.00 kn (£28). Wash it down with superb local white wine, Posip. 10. Ramble on Marjan HillGet out of the city with a trip to Marjan, a green-carpeted hill crowning Split’s peninsula. It takes just an hour’s hike from the centre of Split to lose yourself in this protected park, with its quiet forests and break-out viewpoints. Take a picnic and stop on one of the benches, or mount the 314 steps that will take you to the highest point, Telegrin peak. There are plenty of sights to watch out for, including the incredible St Jerome Church, built out of, and into, the rockface. 4. Visit the Cathedral of St DomniusDelve inside Diocletian’s tomb, now found inside the mediveal Cathedral of St Domnius, which is rather ironic, seeing as the Roman emperor dealt with Christians pretty harshly during his reign. Look out for images of both Diocletian and his wife Priscia here. The views from the belltower of St. Duje, a symbol of the city, are worth the visit and the climb. As the cathedral and tower were built long after the emperor’s death, you’ll be seeing a sight that the emperor himself never got to enjoy.Opening times: Mon to Sat 8am – 7pm, Sun 12.30pm – 6.30pm.Location: Peristil.Price: Adults (cathedral) 35kn, (belfry) 20kn.

Relax on the RivaThis grand floodlit pedestrian thoroughfare that fronts Diocletian’s Palace and the city harbour is basically one giant catwalk, where the Splicani take their passeggiata, or early evening stroll. Slip on your designer shades, pull up a pew in a pavement café and get set for some serious people watching. St. Riva Café handily has an upper level where you can see without being seen. 7. Experience Split’s nightlifeMany visitors leave Split without even realising there is a second, much quieter, level to Diocletian’s Palace, one that comes very much to life as evening hits. Slip up the stairs behind the Roman Peristyle and ditch the guidebook and camera, before joining the cool local crowd at bohemian bar Ghetto. The welcoming atmosphere is a hit with locals and visitors alike, not to mention original and Roman-themed features like the courtyard fountain.Opening times: Sun to Thurs 4pm – 12am; Fri & Sat 5pm – 1am.Location: Dosud 10.

Stadtmuseum von SplitBrush up on your Split history at this good-value city museum, showcasing life as it was through Split’s many eras and incarnations. Sat within the Roman city walls, some of the museum buildings themselves are 500 years old or more, and exploring the inner courtyard with its medieval staircase and arched windows is a pleasant surprise after the modest alleyway entrance.Opening times: Mon to Sun 8:30am – 9pm.Location: Papalićeva 1.Price: Adults 20kn, Concessions 10kn. 8. Dash to Bačvice BayAs night draws in, the city centre starts to empty as a curb on noise kicks in to protect palace residents. Join the Splicani wandering behind the port to Bačvice Bay. Here a glut of cafés, bars and restaurants are lined up along the sands to tempt you. The delicious thin crust pizzas at Karaka are good enough to keep any visiting Neapolitans happy. Anything with prsut (Croatian dried ham) on it is a winner – sorry vegetarians! 5. Play piciginSplit is sport crazy, supporting the local football team, Hajduk Split, with a passion, as well as inventing whole new games and team events for the world to try. One of those special sports is picigin. As far as we can work out there are few actual rules and little exciting gameplay. It’s more a thinly disguised opportunity for the local beach boys to impress the ladies as they writhe around in the water bashing a small ball and going all Top Gun – but 100% worth a try, either as a competitor or just a willing spectator. Discover more local activities and attractions with our country guide to the best of Croatia 14. Hop to Hvar TownHvar Island is another doable Dalmatian trip from Split, with its small-but-chic capital Hvar Town the most obvious place to visit. There’s no denying it’s easy on the eye, with the intense blue of the Adriatic contrasting with immaculate stone piazzas and medieval city walls reminiscent of Dubrovnik. It’s something of a high-flying city break destination these days, so you might need to save up some cocktail money, but as a quick overnighter, Hvar Town offers a taste of seductive Mediterranean glamour, in a manageable size. Ferries and catarmarans go from Split to Hvar Island several times a day even during winter (although some go to Stari Grad, on the north coast), and there are also ‘cross-island’ ferries that link Brac, Vis and other Dalmatian islands. 15. See the waterfalls at Krka National ParkCroatia is known for its beautiful waterfalls and although Plitvice Lakes is probably the most famous place to see them, Krka National Park is equally spectacular, and much easier to visit from Split, with the added bonus of freshwater swimming in some areas! The Krka River runs through the centre of the park, and you’ll find the much-photographed Skradinski Buk falls surrounded by lush vegetation and some interesting local wildlife, including bats and species of reptile. Most people enter at Skradin (although the park has several other entrances), from where you can hike or tour by boat. Check out some of the day tours to see what’s included – the island of Visovac, with its picturesque Franciscan monastery is definitely worth a stop. From Split, get the bus to the town of Sibenik, (1 hour 40 minutes) and then another bus onwards to Skradin.Opening times: Daily, 8am – 8pm.Location: The two main entrances are at Skradin and Lozovac, near Sibenik.Price: Adults, all terrestrial locations (Jan to Mar & Nov to Dec) 30kn, (April to June & Sept to Oct) 110kn (July to Aug) 180kn. Children 7-18yrs (Jan to Mar & Nov to Dec) 20kn (April to June & Sept to Oct) 80kn, (July to Aug) 110kn (cheaper after 4pm in July/Aug). Under 7s free. Extra fees apply for boat excursions. 13. Take a break on BracYou’ll watch ferries manoeuvring in and out of Split throughout your stay, so make sure you actually get on one! They’ll take you to isles such as Brac (‘bratch’), home of the highest mountain on the Croatian isles and with another geological claim to fame: its gleaming white stone was used to build the White House in Washington DC. It’s not as touristy as Korcula but the main reason people visit Brac is for some much-needed R n’ R, with the gorgeous Zlatni Rat beach at Bol endlessly Ingrammable. Take time to explore the largely unpopulated inland region here as well – abandoned stone houses and rocky hills peppered with olive trees give Brac a timeless, undiscovered feel. Regular ferries go from Split to Supetar on Brac in around 50 minutes, so you can do it in a day, or take advantage of cheap accommodation and stretch out in the sun a bit longer. Fancy an island-hopping holiday? Find your paradise with these little-known but must-visit European isles. Search for flights to Split1. Walk with the Romans at Diocletian’s PalaceEnter 1,700-year-old Diocletian’s Palace through the Bronze Gate and stroll shoulder to shoulder with the ghosts of legionnaires who once walked through these ancient streets. It may be nearly the oldest place in Split, but this remarkable Roman ruin still bustles with cafés, bars and restaurants forming the modern centre of the city. Some 3,000 Splicani are even fortunate enough to live inside the complex, which originally housed Emperor Diocletian and his garrison, back when this part of the Adriatic coast belonged to Rome. 11. Discover Bene BeachIn need of a rest after all that walking? Marjan Hill Forest Park has its very own beach on the north side of the peninsula. Ok, so it’s not exactly a secret, but it’s definitely a lot easier to find a quiet spot here than the shores closer to town – head east on Bene Beach to scramble among rocks shaded by pine trees, and wash away the dust with a paddle in the incredible jade and turquoise shallows. A true gem.12. Archäologisches Museum SplitUncover Croatia’s prehistoric and Classical heritage, as well as fascinating finds from Split and the surrounding area at the city Archaeological Museum. Ancient Dalmatian and Illyrian artefacts abound, including weaponry, earthenware and jewellery from the tribal civilisations like the Avar and the Slavs who swept through Croatia after the Roman Empire collapsed.Opening times: (June to Sept) Mon to Sat 9am -2pm & 4pm – 8pm. (Oct to May) Mon to Fri as above, Sat 9am – 2pm. Closed Sundays.Location: Zrinsko – Frankopanska 25.Price: Adults 20kn, Concessions 10kn. 6.

You’ll find here a wide range of his works, including early drawings and designs, through to the distinctive sculptures this twentieth century talent was renowned for.Opening times: Tues to Sat 9am – 4pm; Sun 10am – 3pm (open daily ’till 7pm from May to Sept).Location: Setaliste Ivana Mestrovica 46.Price: Adults 40 kn, Concessions 20 kn.
