Credit: NASA/JPL-CaltechAfter a full day of intense competition, a team of students from University High School in Irvine, California, earned first place in a regional round of the U.S. Department of Energy National Science Bowl on Jan. 26, 2019. This is the second consecutive year that the school has placed first in the regional round, and it’s the 27th year that NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, has hosted the competition.Twenty-four teams from around the Greater Los Angeles area competed in the regional competition this year at JPL, which drew more than 200 students, parents, coaches and guests.Competing in 16-minute-long rounds, teams were asked questions on a range of subjects, including math, physics, Earth and space, chemistry, biology and energy. The use of calculators, books, notes and the internet during the competition was prohibited.After going undefeated throughout the tournament, University High will advance to the national tournament in Washington, D.C., in April. Last year’s University High team, which included three of the five students on this year’s team, took fifth place at the national competition.Arcadia High School in Arcadia took second place in this year’s regional round, and Troy High School in Fullerton took third place, while San Marino High School in San Marino took home the award for best sportsmanship.“The level of competition here is very high,” said David Knight, who has coached University High School’s Bowl teams for more than 15 years. “The teams in this region are really, really good. Any of the top eight teams here today are as good as the teams we saw at the national level.”The University High School team members agreed the pressure during the Bowl could be exhausting but that the adrenaline kept them on their toes. Along with being “tired and relieved” at the end of the day, they were excited for the upcoming national competition.“One of the biggest pressures is deciding when to buzz in,” said University High School senior Michael Diao, referring to the fact that players use a handheld buzzer when they want to answer a question read aloud by the moderator. “If you buzz in before the question is done and you get it wrong, the other team gets points, but you also want to buzz in before the other team does. So deciding how certain you are of your answer and acting fast is really hard.”The team members said that although they practice together about once a week, most of their preparation time is spent reading. For University High team captain Anton Ni, also a senior, the best part about competing in the Science Bowl is simply having the opportunity to learn more about science. “I study things a lot deeper than I would otherwise,” he said.He and Diao both said they also enjoy the team aspect of the competition because the group members push each other to study more and work harder.“And it’s cool to see how much your friends know,” Diao added.The team members said they are all still deciding how science might factor into their eventual careers. For now, Science Bowl isn’t about the future, but enjoying the present. Community News

Last week in Novigrad, the first group of 200 guests from Germany started harvesting olives in the olive groves of Laguna Novigrad.In the morning, the guests went to the olive groves and thus gave their contribution to the production of the esteemed olive oil Vergal. During the harvest, which was accompanied by traditional Istrian music, they also had the opportunity to enjoy local gourmet specialties.”Today has definitely exceeded all my expectations. Picking olives in the first row to the sea, excellent food, oil tasting and helpful waiters. A special day in a beautiful location “, said Klaudia from Germany, who, along with other guests, opened this year’s olive harvest.The company Laguna Novigrad, which manages the tourist brand Aminess Hotels & Campsites, offers guests a unique tourist package that includes accommodation in its facilities and participation in the olive harvest. Thus, every year, during October and November, during the harvest period, Novigrad is visited by more than 700 guests from all over Europe. After the harvest, guests visit the oil mill where they attend the process of processing harvested olives, and as a souvenir they receive a bottle of Vergal.The olive groves where Vergal is produced are located in the immediate vicinity of the sea, which maximally benefits the olive fruit and the quality of the oil. The oil is obtained directly from the olive fruit by a mechanical cold processing process while the fruits are harvested by hand in order to preserve the quality and body of the fruit to the maximum.The quality of Vergal is recognized by both experts and consumers, and it is the winner of several national and international awards. Among them are this year’s award in the Best of Class category, for Vergal Frantoio won in New York at “The New York International Olive Oil Competition”, the largest and one of the most respected competitions in assessing the quality of olive oils in the world, and a gold gourmet medal for Vergal Frantoio as part of the International Edible Oils Competition awarded by L’Agence pour la Valorisation des Produits Agricoles (AVPA) in Paris.Also, the renowned world guide to the highest quality olive oils “Flos Olei 2019” was recently included. For the sixth time, Vergal is part of a world guide that evaluates hundreds of olive oils from all over the world every year. By the way, Aminess also uses the same quality olive oil in its gastronomic offer, ie in the kitchen during the tourist season.A great example of how the tourist season lengthensIn the off-season, 700 guests came to Novigrad, but the motive for their arrival was not the sea and beaches, but olive picking and quality content. Now this whole project, like many others, should rise to a higher level, but not only Aminess, but in synergy the whole destination. This is just a “proof of concept” and one small wheel, now imagine that in Novigrad at the same time we have 5-6 more similar events, that’s about 5.000 nights. The calculation is clear.In north-western Istria we have the best example of the synergy of destinations in Croatia, through Colors of Istria, which extended the season through various contents in the pre- and post-season, and most importantly, not the focus on numbers, but on quality guests who generate much more tourist consumption.On the other side of the Adriatic, more precisely in Postira on the island of Brač, the 2nd World Olive Picking Championship was held this weekend, with teams from Montenegro, France, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Hungary, Great Britain, Sweden, Spain, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Herzegovina, the United States and, of course, Croatia. The event, the main goals of which are to spread olive culture, exchange experiences, socialize between representatives of olive growers, but also countries that do not have such a developed olive tradition, was organized for the second year in a row by Postira Tourist Board and Agricultural Cooperative from Brač.A great example of how the tourist season lengthens. We don’t have to invent “hot water”, we just offer what is natural and logical. Let us be what we are, I must be our main tourist product. Content, only quality content is the main formula of the ingredient how to prolong the tourist season.
