More Magazine News: Rouleur Now Every Two Months

first_imgAnd, um, that’s it really. It’s good news: Rouleur, while slightly po-faced at times, is for me far and away the best source of good writing on cycling. Focused very much on road riding, and majoring on the history of road racing, it features stunning archive photography and new work from some great snappers. The picture here is by Taz Darling of Yozo Shimano. There’s an interview with him and the beginnings of a history of his company in the current issue, as well as pieces on nutrition, Team Z and a photo story of the Tour of California.last_img read more

What Happens When You’re Convinced You Have Bad Genes

first_imgThe first thing you should know is that the DNA-test results everyone got in this study were fake. That was on purpose. Over the course of a year, psychologists at Stanford University recruited 223 participants for a study that would help scientists create personalized nutrition and exercise programs—or so they were told. What the two researchers, Brad Turnwald and Alia Crum, most wanted to investigate was how the participants would react after they took DNA tests and learned their genetic propensities for exercise and diet.

Macola is expanding its product range and selling its wooden houses to foreign markets

first_imgGreat, isn’t it? These cute and attractive wooden tents caught my attention at first, and as this is a new product, we were interested in the story behind the wooden tents. We spoke with Mateo Grgas, Marketing and Sales Director of the Macola company who points out that their possibilities through today’s technology are limitless, only a draft is needed, and the rest is their concern.It all started with wooden houses back in 2012, how are you satisfied with the sales and the situation on the market today? “We are very pleased with the sale of wooden houses, consumers have begun to realize how profitable our houses are, especially in the segment of energy efficiency, and of course there is the environmental aspect. We all know that wood is the best natural insulator, and all our houses are built of laminated wood. Our best-selling product are wooden bungalows, which are mostly sold in camps throughout Croatia, but we also have a lot of private orders.”Mateo Grgas points out and adds that even Dalmatians, who are traditionally tied to the sea and stone, have started buying their wooden houses.By the way, wood as a material combines excellent construction, construction and insulation characteristics, and wood is the best natural insulator (6 times better insulator than brick, and 15 times better insulator than concrete). Thus, the living temperature in wooden houses is 2-3 degrees lower than in houses built with concrete or brick, which significantly reduces heating costs. Wooden tents, how good and logical an idea. The best ideas are simple and that is why often some of the great ideas are not realized because people start to complicate and add various additional elements and benefits that eventually suffocate the product or service. “Our latest product are wooden tents from which we expect a lot. Otherwise, they are ideal for mountainous and Dalmatian climates and islands. Wooden tents are an extremely high quality product made of laminated wood, thickness from 08 to 12 cm and we give a guarantee of up to 30 years. In 16m2 each person can be comfortably and warmly accommodated, and wood is the best natural insulator so there is no worry of cold in our wooden tents”Grgas points out and adds that all their products are produced in Croatia and that they are a product from Croatian forests.The Croatian market is very small, especially through the aspect of continental tourism, regardless of the large resource, and we were interested in what is the long-term concept and whether there is interest in wooden houses in foreign markets. ” Wooden houses and tents are originally intended for camps and resorts, but it is also possible to buy them individually as a private person. We have a lot of inquiries for private purposes, but certainly that Croatia is too small a market for our products, especially for us as producers. We are currently in negotiations with a couple of foreign partners to sell our wooden houses and tents in foreign markets, and we are also already far in negotiations with one major buyer from the Far East”Concludes Mateo GrgasEntrepreneur Željko Orešković decided to complete the whole story and in addition to restaurants, production and sale of wooden houses, bungalows and tents in May he opens his first camp only 6 kilometers away from the Plitvice Lakes National Park, in Grabovac. The camp will contain 14 luxuriously decorated bungalows, a restaurant, a swimming pool and 28 campsites and pitches.A beautiful Croatian entrepreneurial story and we sincerely hope that Croatian wooden houses will conquer foreign markets and promote Croatia as a tourist country, but also a country of innovation and quality products. PHOTO GALLERY OF AUTO CAMP “MACOLA” UNDER CONSTRUCTION center_img When in 2012 Željko Orešković, the most famous Lika caterer and entrepreneur, had a vision to create a tourist eco village with wooden houses, he could not find a product that would satisfy all his wishes and needs – a real quality and functional wooden house. For entrepreneur Orešković, the next and logical step was clear – I’m going to make them myself. Regardless of the fact that the financial crisis was in full swing and that furniture factories were closing day by day, Macola bought a CNC machine, and the rest is history.And so that the story would not only stop at wooden houses, Orešković has just expanded his product line with unique wooden tents. Yes, wooden tents as a top and attractive product for which they already have specific inquiries from the Far East.last_img read more
