Last night, beloved jam band Phish made their return to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, playing the late night show in support of their recently-released Big Boat album. In case you missed it, you can watch performances of “Breath and Burning” and “Blaze On” here. While their performances were in line with our expectations, one detail seemed to have stuck out most for fans of Phish. Trey Anastasio’s shirt-choice, a $780 Gucci floral print silk duke shirt, immediately demanded the audience’s attention. As a result of this flower-speckled shirt, the Internet exploded in hilarious commentary. For kicks, we’ve gathered some of our favorite comments:“I never ever saw a shirt so tight”“We are so very sorry, but it went well with the shoes.”“Adult me is glad he’s happy and healthy. College me wants to kick him in whatever balls he has left.”“What are those, Bitcoin logos?”“Call him Ranch cause he’s dressing!”“Trey’s man blouse > Melania’s pussy-bow blouse”“Is Mike dressing Trey?”“Tuck’d.”“We have tuck’d in fly’s and ass!”“Ellen called wants her shirt back.”“We all paid for that in msg ticket prices.”“Jimmy Buffet called, he wants his shirt back!”“Maybe Page will get hammered and write a ditty about Trey’s new shirt. Trey’s Shirt > Chicks in the Front Row”“We like Trey’s new shirt … It’s so nice … He looks sharper than the dudes in the front row … He looks sharper than the dudes in the back row …”“Y’all were hoping for a Pepe Le Pew shirt bust out weren’t you. I know I was. But it’s nice Gordo let him borrow a shirt for the occasion.”“Yes it’ll be Dad Rock, yes it’ll be 4 mins and 30 seconds with no jam, and yes Trey is wearing a questionable shirt, but you all know you’re gonna stay up til 12:30 and watch the thing..”Abejefferson: “the fuck is he wearing”“Trey looks like Elizabeth Warren”“Looks like Trey raided Gordo’s closet”“Game: Blouses”“Trey looks like he bought that shirt at Prince’s yard sale.”“Looking like a goombah.”“Trey’s back in loud shirts? Fall tour’s gonna be fire.”“Is it Friday yet? Enough with the fore play” ….. *Phoreplay“Alright I give. That shirt makes the dad rock label official and earned.”“Those concerned with Trey’s shirt choice on Fallon need to be reminded of the past. this is but one questionable decision…”“Lets go make some pancakes.”“He looks like he’s about to bust out the sexiest Flamenco Guitar riffs.”“And his pants were equally as stylish.”“Are those pumpkins?“He’s no Ken Bone with fashion but whatever.”“Wtf? Lmfao…Treys trying to look like Dave Matthews”“Forget about all that — **what scarf will Mike be sporting tonight??**”“Who would have thunk it…? But I think Trey just out fashion-ed Mike tonight with his flashy shirt! :O Oh, no, he din’nt!!! [snaps]“The big question now becomes how will Cactus respond out on tour…? Belted Leisure Suits…? A Flowing Kaftan (Kaphtan?)…? Or, perhaps, some sort of a festive hat…? #PhashionWars” “Wait. So Trey was basically wearing the male version of the Pussy-Bow on Fallon last night?”“Did Page find this for him on Pinterest?”“Dude I’ve done a summer tour in the 90’s for less than that shirt cost”“A far cry from the Marvin the Martian shirt :(““Trey’s shirt is navy blue with red circles on it it. C’mon guys he is just making up for the lack of fish’s mumu”#shirtgate….what does it mean?!….“I want you to be flappy!”[H/T Phish Tour 2014]
By Dialogo June 06, 2012 Honduras police arrested 20 leaders of the feared Mara 18 gang on June 4 as they attended a funeral for one of their comrades, a security spokesman told AFP. “Citizens told the police that the leaders would be coming to a funeral for a comrade killed Saturday [June 2],” said Security Ministry spokesman Hector Ivan Mejia. He said police surrounded the funeral procession as the body was being laid to rest in the town of San Buenaventura, north of the capital. Media reported that some of the suspects escaped the cordon, leading police to chase them through the town as gunfire echoed through the streets. Mejia declined to provide further details about the operation, but said the 20 arrestees include neighborhood and district-level chieftains, some of whom had warrants out for their arrest. Turf wars waged by Central American drug cartels have given Honduras one of the highest homicide rates in the world.

When searching for accommodation, we always get information from intermediaries such as: hotela.com, expedia, tripadvisor, booking.com and other booking portals, and even if we know the name of the hotel, it is impossible to get its web address and direct contact. That’s why it was just created Houthbage, a new social network, search engine and marketing platform that allows all entities to advertise at the same price by category directly without intermediaries. Today to get specific information about hotel or campsite accommodation in any place in the world is practically impossible without an intermediary. It is important to emphasize that Houthbage.com unlike Google search engine it gives the ability to view Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Linked profiles. It is very important for the Houthbage network that the end user and service provider can also get or show complete information in pictures, words, video, ie everything that technological trends dictate and what customers expect in the end. For each payment, Houthbage regularly issues a valid tax-deductible invoice, which is valid in every country, and especially in the EU, which is the most important thing for the territory of the Republic of Croatia. The slogan: “It has never been easier to advertise and choose accommodation” can be applied to all accommodation entities from hotels, hostels, camps, motels, private accommodation. And that simply by opening a profile on the houthbage.com search engine or through the Houthbage app on mobile phones. One of the big differences is that the Houthbage search engine displays categories, not just the names of hotels or other accommodations by name. So, if we write in the search engine, for example, hotels Split, Zadar, Zagreb, Opatija… we will get a register or a list of different hotels directly without intermediaries, where the user has all the information about the same, and can view their website, Instagram and Fb or contact. Logically, because a foreign tourist who searches for accommodation in a city does not know the name of the hotel, and so through the Houthbage search engine gets the whole list of hotels in a destination. Business ads amount to € 120 per year, ie. 10 € per month (75 kn) for everyone regardless of size and category. Anyone can advertise for the same cheapest price on the market and what is interesting is that everyone can do it for themselves and pay by credit card without the need for external companies and additional costs that come with it. Today it has never been easier to find and choose accommodation and it has never been easier to promote your accommodation with a fixed price service. Learn more about the Houthbage search engine HERE. On the other hand, hotels, hostels, camps and other accommodation also want to offer their services and charge them directly from users, without intermediaries. Despite huge investments in internet marketing, maintenance and updating of website pages, they are not successful in that, because with all their efforts they can hardly skip large intermediaries.
The most significant investment refers to the hotel Valamar Parentino (ex Zagreb), bought last year in the destination Poreč, which received the first guests of this year last weekend. With the reconstruction and extension of the facility, in addition to the existing 230, 99 new accommodation units were built, so that with 812 basic beds and extra beds, the hotel can accommodate more than 1.000 guests. The second largest investment of the Imperial Riviera refers to the destination Makarska – the second phase of renovation and repositioning of the Valamar Meteor Hotel. Although most investments in tourism have been stopped and prolonged this year, Imperial Riviera has completed almost all investments planned for this year, ie it has realized 90% of the planned investment activities. This year, new zones with 55 new luxury mobile homes have been arranged, and one zone has been converted into a zone with premium camping pitches and complete infrastructure. A new zone for accommodating 20 mobile homes has been arranged in the San Marino Camping Resort, and other smaller investment projects have been implemented per facility. Imperial Riviera investment cycle “This is a specific year for Croatian tourism, and especially for the started investments, so that every new realized project in tourism this year has a special value. Due to extraordinary circumstances, we had to temporarily suspend work on all investments, but we did not give up and we managed to realize as much as 90% of our planned investment activities. All these investments add value to the tourist offer of the Imperial Riviera facilities, in all three destinations”, Points out Vlado Miš, President of the Management Board of Imperial Riviera. The most significant investment relates to the Valamar Parentino Hotel (ex Zagreb), purchased last year in Poreč, the second phase of refurbishment and repositioning of the Valamar Meteor Hotel in Makarska and in the Padova Premium Camping Resort on the island of Rab. Most of the planned investments in the Valamar Parentino Hotel in the amount of HRK 113 million were realized this year. Apart from accommodation, the investment also refers to the development of other services. Maro facilities have been supplemented with a new playground, the pool complex has been expanded to include a relax pool for adults and a children’s pool, a sun deck with a new 200 m140 pool and two slides that descend from the roof of the building. A new Oliva Grill Snack Bar has been built and the capacity of the main restaurant with an extraordinary sea view has been expanded. A stage for evening programs, a new transformer station, new promenades were built and the capacity of the parking lot was increased. The hotel will employ about XNUMX employees during the season, and with its offer and facilities, it is primarily intended for families with children. The third phase of the investment cycle in the amount of HRK 20,7 million was realized in the destination Rab in Padova Premium Camping Resort, so that the total investments in this camp in all three phases during the last three years amount to more than HRK 60 million. Within the Valamar Meteor Hotel, along the promenade and the beach, an investment was made in a new facility with a catering offer, called Trattoria La Pentola. This is already the fourth La Pentola restaurant in Croatia, branded in accordance with Valamar standards, and the first of its kind outside Istria. At the end of 2019, Imperial Riviera started the largest investment cycle so far in the amount of HRK 226,2 million. After last year’s renovation of 112 accommodation units, this year’s investment includes the refurbishment of the remaining 166 accommodation units, reception and lobby areas, construction of a new outdoor pool complex, refurbishment of the indoor pool and spa area, implementation of the Maro animation concept, refurbishment of the meeting hall and entrance and driveway . “The temporary suspension of the construction site from March 25, which lasted for about a month, prevented the timely completion of the investment and putting the hotel into operation, so that work on the remaining 25% of the investment will continue after the tourist season. stand out from the Imperial Riviera. Imperial Riviera currently has in its portfolio six hotels, three tourist resorts and two camps in the leading Croatian destinations, the islands of Rab and Makarska, which makes a total of 3.618 accommodation units and a capacity to accommodate 9.000 guests.
Categories: OpinionWASHINGTON — I’m a rock-ribbed conservative who wants Republicans to keep control of Congress. But I’m not unhappy that Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone appears to have lost the special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District.Why? Because he insulted my mother.Trailing his Democratic opponent in a district Donald Trump won by 20 points, but which still has more registered Democrats than Republicans, Saccone hit on a genius idea to turn out the vote: At a campaign rally just before voters went to the polls, he declared that liberals hate America and hate God. “I’ve talked to so many of these on the left,” he said. “.?.?. And I tell you, many of them have a hatred for our country. .?.?. I’ll tell you some more — my wife and I saw it again today: They have a hatred for God.”My mother is a liberal Democrat, and I can tell you: She does not hate America or God. Quite the opposite; she is one of the most patriotic people I know. She grew up in Nazi-occupied Poland, fought with the Polish underground, was taken to Germany as a prisoner of war, was liberated by Patton’s Army and moved to London. Eventually, she became a doctor and made her way to the United States, where she became a U.S. citizen.There is no one prouder to be an American. When Poland held its first free elections in 1989, Polish Americans living in the United States were invited to vote. Many did so, but my mom refused. She loved the land of her birth, but she was an American citizen now and would not vote in a foreign election. When someone hears her thick Polish accent for the first time they often ask, “Where are you from?” She answers proudly: “New York City.”She’s also a proud Democrat, who voted for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. We disagree about politics, but we both love America and want to make this country great. We just have different ideas about the best ways to do it.So when Saccone says liberals hate America, he’s talking about my mother. I take it personally. And you should, too. Whether you are liberal, conservative or in between, I’ll bet that you have a loved one who disagrees with you about politics. It might be a sibling or a parent or a beloved cousin, aunt or uncle — or even your kids. We should not stand for politicians from either party who insult them or question their motives or their patriotism.Too often, politicians on both the left and right do just that. We saw this recently when, during an event in India, Clinton insultingly claimed that Trump won the parts of the country that weren’t “moving forward.” She said those voters liked what she characterized as Trump’s message that “you know you didn’t like black people getting rights. You don’t like women, you know, getting jobs. You don’t want, you know, to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are.” If you have a loved one who didn’t vote for Clinton in 2016, you should be offended. I doubt the people you love are against civil rights, or women working, or people of color succeeding. They just thought Clinton was a terrible choice for president — an impression she confirmed with those comments.We see it in the gun control debate that followed the Parkland, Fla., school shooting. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said that if you’re not in favor of immediate action on guns, “you’re an accomplice” to the Parkland killer. Seriously? Do you have a loved one who disagrees with you about gun control? Are they accomplices to mass murder? No, they just disagree that gun control is the solution.The problem exists on both sides of the aisle, and it’s not just politicians. American Enterprise Institute President Arthur Brooks recalls how a few years ago he was giving a speech at a large conservative event. “I said that while my own views are center-right, I have no reason to believe progressives are stupid or evil,” he recalls. “An audience member countered, ‘You’re wrong: They are stupid and evil.’” Brooks is from Seattle, which means almost every member of his family is progressive.Progressives are not stupid and evil. Conservatives are not racists and misogynists. Our fellow Americans who disagree with us are not our enemies. They are our fellow Americans who differ with us. And we should not put up with politicians, on the left or right, who can’t seem to understand this.Marc A. Thiessen is part of the The Washington Post Writers Group.

“We urge industries to temporarily halt their activities or, in other words, to send their workers home. We will issue a notice of the appeal,” Isdianto said on the sidelines of his visit to Galang Island’s infectious disease isolation and observation facility in Batam on Saturday.He said that an economic downturn was a risk that everyone had to take in order to stop the spread of the virus. He said he hoped for understanding from the companies who would bear the brunt of the potential shutdown.“Do we want economic activities to continue or for COVID-19 to immediately recede? If the [industrial] activity continues, the [COVID-19] problem will linger, and we afraid that there will be an even bigger loss in the future,” he said.Read also: In Singapore’s neighbor Batam, malls empty, ferry trips reduced as virus fears lurk As of Tuesday, the Riau Islands had confirmed four COVID-19 cases – with two of the cases from Batam city – and had placed hundreds of people under observation (PDP) because they had been in contact with COVID-19 patients or had recently traveled to virus-stricken regions.Besides urging industries to temporarily shut down their factories, Isdianto also assured residents that staple stocks for consumption in the province remained sufficient for the next four months after visiting the Riau Islands’ State Logistics Agency (Bulog) warehouse on Saturday.Batam Mayor Muhammad Rudi said his administration could not impose a lockdown on the city, as President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo had strictly forbidden local authorities to lock down their respective regions.“I don’t have any plan to impose a lockdown in Batam, as it’s the president’s jurisdiction. We’ll be waiting for the president’s instruction if there’s a lockdown,” he said.Batam’s Industrial Zones Association (HKI) vice-chairman Tjaw Hoeing previously said that companies inside the zone had just begun to resume operations after long suspensions. The COVID-19 outbreak in China severely disrupted the industries’ supply chains, leading to shortages of raw materials.Even without factories closing, Tjaw projected that industrial exports from Batam would drop significantly over the next few weeks as the COVID-19 pandemic had affected wide areas in Europe and the United States.Read also: COVID-19: Batam to ban residents traveling to Singapore amid new border policyAt the national level, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati projected on Wednesday that the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth would drop to between 4.5 and 4.9 percent in the first quarter, with the possibility of plunging further in the second quarter as economic activity weakened.The central government tried to dampen the economic effects of COVID-19 by deploying a second stimulus package worth Rp 22.9 trillion (US$1.3 billion) on March 13 that included individual and corporate tax breaks as well as the relaxation of loan disbursements and restructuring requirements.It also unveiled a non-fiscal stimulus package that included a reduction in the number of goods prohibited for import and the acceleration of import and export processing and licensing, especially for reputable traders.

“I think we struck a good balance,” Taikina replied, concerning the plan’s changes.But it appeared to be of no avail. Board Chairwoman Joan Jay continued to object to the two exits onto River Road, as she and other board members said they would like to see traffic leave by way of Cedar. “There’s too many kids in that specific area,” feared Jay.Board member Jacob Rue felt the brick structure with stone accents, spoke to chain business styling, with Investors’ banks all looking the same. Rue made the comparison to McDonald’s golden arches and felt that uniformity wasn’t in keeping with the town’s character.Board member James Ingle agreed with Rue, believing “design-wise, it’s way off the palette.”“I think it’s a great looking building,” Taikina countered. By John BurtonFAIR HAVEN – It’s back to the drawing board for M&M Realty Partners, seeking additional time for its proposal to build an Investors Bank branch on River Road.Faced with a skeptical Planning Board and a possible denial of the proposal on Tuesday evening, John E. Taikina, director of real estate development for M&M, requested the board adjourn his application for at least 60 days to give the developers an opportunity to re-evaluate the proposal or other options for the site.Taikina faced a board that continued to express concerns over the plan to construct an approximately 2,700-square-foot Investors Bank branch with drive-thru windows on the site of a former Sunoco gas station, at 626 River Road, on the corner of Cedar Avenue.When the planning board began hearing this application on May 10, its first formal hearing on the bank proposal, board members had voiced concerns over the building’s design and with possible safety considerations for traffic entering and departing the bank.In response to those comments, the developer had tinkered with the plan, providing additional landscaping along the property buffer, scaling back lighting, having a lower fence, reduced to 3 1⁄2 feet from the original 6-foot, and moving the placement of the trash dumpsters. He further explained this is the style Investors has adopted around the state with the bank standing firm on the design – as well as with the exit onto River Road – putting him “in a box,” with no maneuver room on those issues.M&M Realty Partners, Rivers Edge, is the contract purchaser of the former Sunoco and now vacant site, with hopes of leasing the space to Investors Bank, Taikina said after the hearing adjourned.Taikina let his frustration show when addressing the planning board. “I’m asking you to tell me what you want and we can work with it,” he said. “Don’t just tell me you don’t like it.”With little wiggle room for Taikina and a board seeming to stand steadfast on these issues, Taikina asked for and received the adjournment for now.But Taikina informed the planning board “If it’s not a bank, it changes our whole thinking.” He suggested the next plan could be a restaurant with outside dining or a retail space, something that maybe more intensive of a use. “If it’s not a bank,” he again said, “it’ll be more.”“I think a planner of your skill will come back to dazzle us,” said Board member Peter Lucas.
