U.S. Government Unveils New Design for the $100 Note Government to Currency Users: Know Its Features So You Can Know It’s Real
WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 21, 2010) – Officials from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the United States Secret Service today unveiled the new design for the $100 note. Complete with advanced technology to combat counterfeiting, the new design for the $100 note retains the traditional look of U.S. currency.
“As with previous U.S. currency redesigns, this note incorporates the best technology available to ensure we’re staying ahead of counterfeiters,” said Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner.
“When the new design $100 note is issued on February 10, 2011, the approximately 6.5 billion older design $100s already in circulation will remain legal tender,” said Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board Ben S. Bernanke. “U.S. currency users should know they will not have to trade in their older design $100 notes when the new ones begin circulating.”
There are a number of security features in the redesigned $100 note, including two new features, the 3-D Security Ribbon and the Bell in the Inkwell. These security features are easy for consumers and merchants to use to authenticate their currency. more...newmoney.gov
Electric car XD The extensive experience in vehicle production enables DOK-ING to soon include a new creation in their range of products - an electrical city car. Constructors and engineers of DOK-ING have been working on that research and development project for the last four years, and have succeeded in singlehandedly creating a new electric automobile.
Three seats car has been designed primarily as an ecologically acceptable vehicle to be used for city driving, i.e. a second family car. The whole project has been thought of and developed at DOK-ING while an industrial designer, exclusively responsible for the car image, signs the car design.
Customers will have a choice between a cheaper solution consisting of lead battery with lesser autonomy and a new generation battery made of lithium - iron - phosphate (LiFeP04), light, ecologically acceptable and non-combustible. Following two hours charging, the car will be able to cover 250 km. The price will vary according to the chosen battery, desired autonomy and the car equipment. The car will be equipped with the regenerative brake system enabling it to recharge during braking. The warrant period for the car, excluding the battery, is 5 years. more...dok-ing.hr

Congresswoman Hahn Meets with Croatian Ambassador Joško Paro
October 10, 2013
United States Representative
Janice Hahn (CA-44)
Washington, DC (202) 225-8220
San Pedro, CA
Contact: Breelyn Pete
WASHINGTON, DC — Today, as co-chair of the Congressional Croatian Caucus, Congresswoman Janice Hahn (CA-44) welcomed Croatian Ambassador Joško Paro to Washington. The two met in Congresswoman Hahn’s Washington office and discussed increased cooperation between the United States and Croatia and the possibility of the Croatian Ambassador visiting San Pedro.
“It was my pleasure to welcome Ambassador Paro to Washington,” said Congresswoman Hahn. “I am proud of my new role in the Congressional Croatian Caucus and I am looking forward to working with Ambassador Paro and promoting the Croatian-American community’s voice in Congress. I represent one of the largest Croatian-American communities in the United States and I hope the Ambassador will be able to visit my office in San Pedro very soon.”
Daksa ponovno na prodaji (za 2 milijuna dolara)
Dubrovnik, 12. 10. 2013. — U Gradskoj vijećnici danas će se održati sjednica Skupštine Dubrovačko-neretvanske županije na kojoj će među ostalim na prvokup Županiji biti ponuđeni otok Daksa i ljetnikovac Restić u Sustjepanu. Daksu prodaje pet iseljeničkih obitelji podrijetlom iz Dubrovnika za cijenu od oko 2 milijuna eura.
Daksa je na prodaju ponuđena još 2003. godine za 6 milijuna dolara, da bi se cijena kasnije spustila na svega 3,5 milijuna američkih dolara. No najvjerojatnije strašne povijesti otoka na kojem se dogodio ratni zločin, interesa nije bilo.
Po pravu prvokupa Županiji je ponuđen i ljetnikovac Restić u Sustjepanu po cijeni od 250 tisuća eura.Županijska skupština će najvjerojatnije, zbog nedostatka novca odbiti obje ponude. dubrovniknet team

They Never Walked Alone A Film About St. Jerome's Croatian Catholic Church
The documentary film about St. Jerome's Croatian Church narrated by Goran Visnjic and Bill Kurtis
Friday, August, 9th at 10pm CT and on Velika Gospa, Thursday, August 15th, 2pm CT
Nestled in the shadows of Chicago's tall skyscrapers and a matrix of highways, lies the Croatian parish of St. Jerome. Embedded in one of Chicago’s oldest ethnic neighborhoods, the church has stood as a proud beacon ministering to Croatian immigrants and their families since the early 1900s. Like many unique ethnic parishes in the U.S., it has served as a refuge to preserve faith, family and identity. At its core - a continuous mission to remind its flock that for every journey - they were not alone. This is the story of their centennial path.

Sretan Dan državnosti! 26. 6. 2013.
Dana 25. lipnja 1991. Hrvatski sabor jednoglasno je izglasao Deklaraciju o samostalnosti Hrvatske.
SRETAN VAM BLAGDAN SV. ANTE Najlipše i najpopularnije ime u Hrvata
Svetac cijeloga svijeta
13. 6. 2013. — Sveti Antun jedan je od najštovanijih i najomiljenijih svetaca u hrvatskom narodu. Posvećene su mu mnoge crkve, po njemu su mnogi dobili imena, njemu se mnogi katolici, pa čak i oni koji nisu vjernici, obraćaju u teškim životnim trenucima.
Sv. Antun (Ante, Anto, Antonio, Antonija…) rođen je 1195. godine u portugalskom glavnom gradu Lisabonu. Krsno mu je ime bilo Fernandez Martin de Bulhorn. Roditelji, otac Marti i majka Marija, bili su plemićkog podrijetla. Kako su bili pravi bogobojazni kršćani, više su cijenili krjepost nego plemstvo. Krjepost - to pravo duševno plemstvo koja nas sve više čini sličnima Bogu, nastojali su svome sinu usaditi u srce revnije nego išta drugo.
Već u svojoj petnaestoj godini odlučio je svoj život posvetiti Bogu, pa stupa u samostan Augustinaca u Lisabonu. Studirao je Sveto pismo i crkvene oce te se posebno brinuo za bolesnike. Da bi se što više posvetio Bogu i potrebitima, na vlastitu zamolbu biva premješten u augustinski samostan sv. Križa u Koimbru. Svoj život posvetio je molitvi, živio je vrlo pobožno i samozatajno. Najvjerojatnije je zaređen za svećenika 1219. godine. Potresen mučeničkom smrću marokanskih misionara iz reda sv. Franje, Antun 1220. godine stupa u red sv. Franje i odlazi u Maroko, ali ga teška bolest umjesto u domovinu vodi u Messinu na Siliciji.
Nakon višemjesečnog oporavka u Assisiju je oko Duhova 1221. godine susreo sv. Franju, što je bilo presudno za ostanak u Italiji. više…frama.ba
Zemlje EU ponovno vraćaju policiju na granice Zbog priljeva izbjeglica države će moći ponovno uspostavljati graničnu kontrolu do najviše dvije godine
Europski parlament i Vijeće dogovorili su reformu Schengenskog sporazuma prema kojoj će države moći u iznimnim okolnostima ponovno uspostavljati graničnu kontrolu na granici s drugom državom schengenske zone na razdoblje od šest mjeseci, što se maksimalno može produljivati na dvije godine. Priljev izbjeglica jedna je od iznimnih okolnosti koje će dopustiti državama takvu mjeru, a inicijator novoga režima bila je Njemačka. Nova pravila trebala bi se početi primjenjivati od jeseni 2014., kazala je povjerenica EU za unutarnja pitanja Cecilia Malmström. više…vecernji.hr
FIFA fines Croatia for anti-Serbia chants at World Cup qualifier
May. 29 2013 — The Croatian Football Association was fined 50,000 Swiss francs ($51,500) Wednesday for offensive chants by fans at a World Cup qualifying match against Serbia in March.
Although FIFA imposed the fine, Croatia avoided a stadium closure, which football’s governing body has ordered for World Cup qualifiers in other discrimination cases this season.
The latest case involving Croatia fans follows criticism from UEFA President Michel Platini last June after a series of incidents at the European Championship, including racial abuse targeted at Italy forward Mario Balotelli.more...theglobeandmail.com
Ustavni sud ukinuo je kurikulum zdravstvenog odgoja
Do donošenja drugog kurikuluma, koji će biti u skladu s ustavnim i demokratskim načelima, predavat će se sadržaji zdravstvenog odgoja koji su se provodili do početka školske godine 2012. /2013.
Ustavni sud ukinuo je kurikulum zdravstvenog odgoja i odredio da će se do donošenja drugog kurikuluma, u skladu s ustavnim i demokratskim načelima, predavati sadržaji zdravstvenog odgoja koji su se provodili do početka školske godine 2012. /2013.
Država nije na uravnotežen način uskladila sadržaje zdravstvenog odgoja s ustavnim pravom i slobodom roditelja u odgoju djece. Proces uređivanja i implementacije događao se na način koji djelomice nije u skladu s demokratskim načelima koje je država dužna poštovati i provoditi. Taj proces pokazao je značajan nedostatak demokratskog pluralističkog pristupa.
Neprihvatljivo je da pri donošenju propisa takvog sadržaja i pravne snage nije prethodilo iznošenje mišljenja vijeća roditelja, nije bilo uključeno Nacionalno vijeće za odgoj i obrazovanje, a nije bila provedena ni javna rasprava, osobito o spolnom odgoju, a znalo se da će to izazvati kontroverzije.više…vecernji.hr

BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE GOTOVINA CASE
Get the story from lead defense attorney Luka Misetic of what really happened at the ICTY from the indictment to the original conviction to ultimate freedom
THE MOST IMPORTANT LEGAL CASE IN THE HISTORY OF CROATIA
The ICTY case of General Ante Gotovina is one of the most important moments in the history of Croatia. The outcome of the trial would not only determine the freedom of General Gotovina, but would mark for history the Croatian people's role in the war. A guilty verdict would justify UN policies during the Homeland War, which treated Croatia and Serbia as equals in a civil war instead of identifying Serbia as the aggressor, and a not guilty verdict would acknowledge that Croatia had the right to defend its homeland against an invading military force.
Luka Misetic will provide his analysis of what General Gotovina's not guilty verdict means for Croatia and describes the personal burden of having the lead role in this historic case for our homeland. This is an event not to be missed!
Sunday, May 19th at 3pm
A buffet style lunch will be served. Donations are not required, but are appreciated. Please reserve a seat or a table by e-mailing email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org ... or by calling Sylvana Gusich at 562-858-3930.
Nije puč nego plan za rušenje Tomislava Karamarka
Uvjetno nazvanu “Prgometovu grupu” ujedinjuje stav da ima pravo na unutarstranačke izbore jer su se svi pretendenti lani usuglasili da se drugi korak konsolidacije stranke uradi godinu dana od izbornog sabora u svibnju 2012.
Posljednje četiri godine HDZ zna samo za poraze. Stranka je do održavanja unutarstranačkih izbora u svibnju 2012. bila gotovo uništena. Bilo je malo onih koji su uopće vjerovali da će stranka, izložena lavini negativnih zbivanja, a prije svega sudskim procesima zbog niza korupcijskih afera, uopće opstati. Tako je bilo sve do izbora za Europski parlament, kada HDZ, na sveopće iznenađenje, ne samo da ustaje iz politički mrtvih, nego tijesno, ali ipak pobjeđuje listu vladajuće SDP-ove koalicije i osvaja više mandata.više...vecernji.hr
Švedski kralj i kraljica oduševljeni Zadrom
2013 04 19 — Švedski kralj Karl Gustaf i kraljica Silvia posjetili su jučer zadarske Morske orgulje i Pozdrav suncu, nakon čega su se preko rive uputili do Sv. Donata, te preko Kalelarge u Muzej Antičkog stakla. Lokacije koje su kralj i kraljica razgledali još prije nekoliko mjeseci odabrao je švedski protokol, a prve impresije švedskog kraljevskog para o Zadru su izvrsne, doznali smo od hrvatskih predstavnika koji su ih pratili tijekom njihovog posjeta.
Ministar turizma RH Darko Lorencin kralja Karla Gustafa i kraljicu Sofiu pratio je od samog početka tijekom njihovog državnog posjeta i njihovi dojmovi o Hrvatskoj su izuzetno pozitivni, kaže:
- Oni su čak i sentimentalno na neki način vezani za Hrvatsku budući da su boravili na ovim prostorima krajem sedamdesetih godina i ovo je jedno osvježavanje dojmova iz tog doba, otkrio je ministar.više...zadarskilist.hr
Obavještajci iz bivše države digli se na noge kako bi Perkoviću osigurali makedonsko državljanstvo
Sada je već sasvim izvjesno da je Perković podigao na noge brojne obavještajce iz bivše države, sve same okorjele Udbaše, kako bi se domogao makedonskog državljanstva i izbjegao izrućenje Njemačkoj zbog sudjelovanja u pripremi ubojstva hrvatskog emigranta Stjepana Đurekovića.
Nakon što je Njemačka našoj zemlji poslala obnovljeni uhidbeni nalog za trinaestero hrvatskih državljana, bivših Udbaša, zbog sumnje da su sudjelovali u likvidacijama hrvatskih političkih emigranata, jedan od njih, udbaški kapitalac Josip Perković, ovih je dana intenzivirao svoje kontakte s bivšim obavještajcima s prostora bivše Jugoslavije, s kojima na sve moguće načine pokušava pronaći rješenje kojim bi izbjegao uhićenje i izručenje Njemačkoj. više...dnevno.hr
Fit for a king: Croatia's palace hotel that is a medieval masterpiece of the Mediterranean
Nothing beats a personal recommendation when you're choosing a hotel.
As I deliberated about where to stay in Croatia, a colleague described her holiday at the Lesic Dimitri Palace as "amazing", with that faraway look in her eyes that made me immediately reach for the computer keyboard to book a room.
A few weeks later, as my travel partner and I stepped off the ferry from Hvar to the island of Korcula, a smiling gentleman introduced himself. "I'm from the Palace," he said. And with those words I knew I had made the right choice. more... dailymail.co.uk
EASTER MESSAGE FROM FATHER IVAN
OF ST. ANYHONY'S
Mankind has always sought solutions to its problems. The evil that is inherent in us, which we call the original sin, has contributed to so many acts of wars, violence, corruption, intolerance, abuse, deceit, hatred, strife and misery of all kind. The essential question is how can we overcome evil? Confrontation or revenge, avoiding or running away from the reality, drowning in complacency, indulging in self pity or harboring grudges and accusations against God is not the solution. Evil cannot be overcome by evil. The problem of evil is present in all religions and philosophies. Is there somebody who can save us from evil? One who is poisoned needs help.
We celebrated the mysteries of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection. One of the worst evils came to Jesus Christ. He was condemned and crucified by our sins. But Jesus converted our sinfulness into our salvation. He becomes our serum against the poison of evil and death. There is a story in the Old Testament about when the Israelites were attacked by serpents and Moses to save them erected a bronze snake on a pole. Whoever was bitten by a snake and then looked upon the erected snake on the pole was saved (cf. Jn 3, 14; Num 21, 8-9). The symbol of the snake on the pole in medicine is allegory of evil, sin and death crucified in Jesus on the cross. Through his resurrection, Jesus has reversed our sinfulness and mortality into our life of grace. He became our Savior. His sacrifice would not have meaning without his love for us. His resurrection is the victory of his love. Therefore, he is giving us his new commandment of love as a serum against any evil. Let us be part of Jesus’ love and reform our lives in order to be the reformers of the world around us. In this spirit I wish you all HAPPY EASTER!

Trutanich and members of his family will be voting at 7:05 am Tuesday at his polling place, UCFW Local 770 Meeting Hall, Blue Table, at 25949 Belle Porte Ave., Harbor City.

Za svaku obitelj važni su novci, s ponosom mogu reći da unatoč krizi brojne gradske tvrtke i poduzeća prošlu godinu završili su uspješno i u plusu.

Gotovina: Ponosan sam na "Maslenicu"
General Ante Gotovina izjavio je danas kako je ponosan na Vojno-redarstvenu operaciju "Maslenica '93" , jer je ona doprinijela pobjedi u Domovinskom ratu.
"Osjećam se ponosan, jer je to jedna od operacija koja nam je omogućila da pobjedimo u ratu i da se od 1995. godine naša domovina razvija u miru", izjavio je novinarima general Gotovina na svečanom polaganju vijenaca na zadarskom Gradskom groblju u povodu 20. obljetnice operacije "Maslenica '93".
To je bila akcija koja nas je usmjerila dalje i u kojoj smo "stekli sva taktička i tehnička znanja i razvili naše oružane snage da bismo došli do konačne pobjede", kazao je Gotovina, jedan od zapovjednika akcije.
Istaknuo je da je ponosan "na svoje branitelje i sve zajedno koji smo se danas okupili tu".zadarskilist.hr
A letter from the Croatian American Women's Club in support of a new film Brenda Brkusic is co-producing:
To Our Members, The Croatian American Women's Club is interested in helping one of our own in a worthy endeavor that highlights our Croatian heritage and identity, and is centered around a Croatian-American woman. Brenda Brkusic, Emmy winning producer, filmmaker and executive producer of program development and national productions for PBS SoCal is co-producing a new film, with fellow Croatian American Maria Ramas, called “Mia: A Dancer’s Odyssey”. The film is supported by two local non-profit organizations, Slavenska Dance Preservation and PBS SoCaL. The film will air on HRT (Croatian TV) and nationally on PBS stations in the U.S. in the coming year. The filmmakers are in need of finishing funds to complete the project for PBS.
It is a beautiful and emotional film about a famous Croatian ballerina, Mia Corak Slavenska (Maria’s mother). It focuses on Mia leaving Croatia, becoming famous in America, the relationship between mother and daughter and longing to return home. Unfortunately, Mia only returned home after her death. Famous actress Blythe Danner performs the voice over in the film. Previously, the film received a prestigious grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and many individuals and organizations in the US and Croatia have already supported the film financially, including the U.S. and Croatian governments. Support of this film will help to ensure that it reaches millions of people through national broadcasts on PBS. This is an opportunity to spotlight yet another woman of exceptional talent. In addition, we are helping two Croatian American women tell a story about a Croatian American woman. Those wishing to contribute to this worthy project can send a tax-deductible donation check to CAWC, and please reference “Mia Project.”

The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) campus in Croatia, the American College of Management and Technology (RIT/ACMT), offers two special summer programs: a five-week Dubrovnik-based program and a 25-day travel program, Footsteps through the Adriatic. Dubrovnik-based program:
Students will spend five weeks in the stunning city of Dubrovnik and can still expect to make progress toward their degree completion. All courses are taught in English and follow the same curriculum as courses offered at the RIT campus in Rochester, New York.
Classes will run from June 3 – July 5, 2013 at our Dubrovnik Campus. The program also includes excursions outside of the classroom as well as extracurricular trips around the region.
Students have an option of enrolling in up to three classes during the summer program. Courses are designed with both RIT and non-RIT students in mind. Students from across the U.S. and throughout Europe study side-by-side in this unique learning environment. Students take pre-approved courses that may be applied toward their degree while also experiencing the beauty and culture of Croatia. Upon successful completion of the coursework, students eligible for credit will receive an official transcript from Rochester Institute of Technology.
The following courses for theDubrovnik-based program are offered: • Adriatic Art History

Od 2012. za građane u škripcu Zakon o stečaju potrošača Stručnjaci su skloni tome da u novom zakonu vođenje bankrota građana preuzmu javni ovršitelji, dok bi stečajni upravitelji i dalje radili samo s pravnim osobama
Hoće li stečaj postati izlaz za građane pogođene velikom potrošnjom, dugovima, gubitkom posla, manjkom prihoda za otplatu kredita, za one koji u krizi ne mogu do novog posla te ne plaćaju režije, postat će jasnije ove jeseni. Zakon o stečaju potrošača naziv je novog propisa koji bi i u Hrvatskoj od 2012. trebao regulirati pitanja stečaja fizičkih osoba. iscrpnije...poslovni.hr
