Jaylan Hankin was in action from the start when Gibraltar faced Bulgaria under 21 away.
An offensive-looking Bulgaria started looking for a quick goal.
However, Gibraltar had to claim a penalty within the first five minutes after Bulgaria’s defense defeated an attacker after a brief pause.
Bulgaria moved on just as quickly in the next game after a save from Hankin was not cleared by the defenders, who went in for an easy shot.
Only a minute later, Hankin was back in action, a quick hand-out reflex was able to clear a header accurately. This time his defense reacts well.
Forced to deeply defend Gibraltar’s U21 players, dressed to the rear, block Bulgaria’s path to goal.
Gibraltar’s only attacker is waiting for an opportunity to break through. The defensive wall in front of the penalty area slowed Bulgaria down for the first twenty minutes of the game. Gibraltar has the chance to have a little more ball for a short time.
Gibraltar conceded two goals in a row after trailing 3-0 in the half hour.
Bulgaria scored their fourth goal after thirty-four minutes after opening the Gibraltar defense.
Bulgaria entered the half-time break 4-0.
Jaylan Hankin was back in action at the beginning of the second half and blocked a break into the penalty area.
Bulgaria added their fifth place to the hour after continuing to put pressure on Gibraltar. Up until then, Gibraltar had played with ten men after Montovio was sent off with a second yellow card.
It was with their backs to the wall that Bulgaria controlled and dominated possession of the ball to improve their record.
Gibraltar defended itself in the penalty area for the last ten minutes.

New EES technologies at Bulgaria’s aviation hubs – Airport World https://moiteplanini.com/new-ees-technologies-at-bulgarias-aviation-hubs-airport-world/ https://moiteplanini.com/new-ees-technologies-at-bulgarias-aviation-hubs-airport-world/#respond Thu, 07 Oct 2021 10:05:29 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/new-ees-technologies-at-bulgarias-aviation-hubs-airport-world/

SSARM is one of the leading IT system integrators in Bulgaria and, following a tender from the Bulgarian Ministry of the Interior, last year received a major order to equip the Bulgarian aviation hubs with EES-compliant border control solutions.

In the meantime, SSARM, in cooperation with its German partner secunet, has fully installed a secure turnkey solution at Sofia, Varna and Burgas airports. Bulgaria was one of the first countries in Europe to fully prepare its busiest air borders for the EU-wide entry / exit system, long before it is expected to start in May 2022.

Nikolay Dimchev – Managing Director of SSARM – about the project, his most interesting findings and the added value for passengers, border control and airports.

What exactly did you install at the airports in Varna, Burgas and Sofia and why?

The reason for the introduction of new border control systems is closely related to the decision of the EU to introduce the entry / exit system in the entire Schengen area in 2022. By taking facial images and fingerprints, all Member States will in future know better which third-country nationals are entering the EU and ensure that individual passengers do not stay too long. This increases security for all of us.

The integration of these additional process steps in the primary border control threatens to collapse with unchanged infrastructures, because the processing takes an average of 40-45 seconds longer – per passenger! Process automation at all possible steps, including stationary border control counters, is therefore unavoidable.

The Ministry of the Interior has therefore decided to comprehensively modernize the border control technology and entrusted us with the implementation. Then – in cooperation with our project partner secunet – we installed ABC gates, self-service kiosks as well as camera systems and fingerprint readers for the stationary counters at the three aviation hubs in Bulgaria.

The technologies fulfill very different functions and are partly intended for different groups of passengers – but all the technologies together will noticeably accelerate the border control process and significantly reduce the workload of the officers responsible.

EES installations at Bulgarian air traffic hubs: Burgas Airport

Why did you decide to bring secunet on board as a partner for the EES implementation? SSARM is itself a well-positioned IT system integrator.

We have been working with secunet for a long time in the field of high security technologies and they have proven to us time and again in previous projects that the quality of their products is not only right, but also that it fully meets the requirements of our customers.

The secunet experts simply understood the processes and requirements on the customer side well and implemented them accordingly in their products. That is why we contacted secunet for the EES project. Although we ourselves are excellently positioned as a system integrator who knows the Bulgarian market very well, we do not have our own product portfolio in this area.

We were also impressed by the EES solutions from secunet: They deliver EES-compliant biometric solutions that guarantee the best possible quality of biometric data and are designed with a high level of protection against circumvention and forgery. This is extremely important, especially in unattended systems where the officer is not right next to you and monitoring every passenger.

And last but not least, all products are characterized by a very eye-catching, modern design – not to be underestimated in view of today’s innovative airport architecture.

ABC gates and self-service kiosk systems at Sofia Airport

Modernizing the border control infrastructure was certainly a big investment. What are the benefits for passengers, airports and border controls?

The advantages are quickly summed up: passengers – no matter where they come from – now have access to automation technologies at the Bulgarian airports in Sofia, Varna and Burgas. If you will, they have at least part of their border crossing in their own hands.

Thanks to intuitive user guidance and innovative security mechanisms, passengers can be sure that their data will be recorded quickly and processed securely and in compliance with data protection regulations. Of course, high-quality biometric registration is particularly important for the border police. In addition, the officers are optimally supported by the technologies and not burdened additionally.

And the airports benefit from the fact that despite more extensive border control processes, which actually take more time, there are not significantly more queues and missed connecting flights. In short: with automation and process optimization, we have ensured that time limits and the increasing number of passengers can be properly and safely intercepted even in “EES operation”.

Impressions of the installed easytowers and easygates at Varna Airport

What are your most important insights from this EES project?

Actually, we faced the same challenges in the EES project as in almost every IT project: If it becomes more concrete than a description on paper, it is not uncommon for new or changed requirements on the customer side to arise that have to be implemented at short notice in the ongoing project. This is completely normal and we can handle it very well.

With the EES installations, for example, we installed the most modern and safest products and found that this alone was not enough. Border control projects are about more than “just” installing technology. The products should optimize passenger processes and fit perfectly into the respective environment and infrastructure, which is different at every airport and on every land border.

That was an important and new insight for us. In this specific case, we have also integrated functional expansions into the current project that were not planned beforehand. The installation of glass walls between stationary and automated border control or the construction of racks for the fingerprint scanners, which otherwise would not be perfectly positioned for the passengers, are small examples.

Fortunately, together with secunet, we were able to offer all new customer requests quickly and in line with requirements, integrate them into the project implementation and still deliver on time.

Another important, but certainly not new, finding is that, right up to the end, you have to react flexibly and concentrate on details if you want perfectly fitting and visually appealing installations.

Are there any other points that you would like to highlight in particular?

The EES installation was our first border control project, our premiere, so to speak. We are proud and relieved that we completed the task to the full satisfaction of the Bulgarian Ministry of the Interior. Having the very experienced people from secunet on board was of course an enormous advantage for us. In times of this pandemic we learned a lot together and supported each other in the best possible way, even if we had to do this “remotely” for the majority of the project.

Thanks to this perfect cooperation, we were able to implement the installations on time and to achieve the customer’s stated goal: Bulgaria is one of the first countries in the EU to be equipped with an EES-compliant overall solution at the three air traffic hubs, long before the official introduction of the Entry / exit system. We are proud of that.

Where do Bulgarian students want to study? – Novinite.com https://moiteplanini.com/where-do-bulgarian-students-want-to-study-novinite-com/ https://moiteplanini.com/where-do-bulgarian-students-want-to-study-novinite-com/#respond Wed, 06 Oct 2021 20:56:51 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/where-do-bulgarian-students-want-to-study-novinite-com/

Early applications for the Netherlands increase by 80%. Belgium becomes the travel destination of choice, and interest in the USA grows

The growth of early applications for study in the Netherlands in the next academic year is over 80%, announced the company “Integral” – organizer of the forum “World Education”, which will take place in Sofia for the 42nd time this fall (October 9th ). -10). Plovdiv (October 11th), Burgas (October 12th) and Varna (October 13th). In some areas, such as Varna and Burgas, this increase reaches two or even three times. The data come from the virtual format of the exhibition in September that has already been carried out. The specialties in Netherlands, Bulgarian graduates will focus on in the next year are computer science, economics and management, game design, animation, psychology. The target filled a niche that opened up after Brexit and the UK’s elimination of student loans.

In the list of the top 3 most popular study abroad countries, the Netherlands are in first place and Germany in second place and the United Kingdom in third place, with only a quarter of candidates choosing a country.

The other ascending goal is according to the integral Belgium. The interest in training in this country is almost five times as high as in the previous year, albeit on a low basis. Belgium comes across with cheap tuition fees (962 euros for a bachelor’s degree and for most master’s programs), the possibility of choosing an academic or practical profile, as well as the English-language courses such as media and communication, IT, business and economics, tourism.

After Brexit, there is an interesting trend of increasing interest in US universities, reported Integral. The cost of studying there is the same as in the United Kingdom, and in some cases even lower. At the same time, the quality of higher education in the United States continues to be as high as possible.

Bulgarians are even interested in studying at Harvard, for which the current social situation in the country could be important, said Nikolay Hristanov, university advisor at Integral. There are currently 25 Bulgarians studying at Harvard, according to a public report from the world-famous university. “The first thing we have to say to our customers interested in studying at Harvard is that this is a very demanding task! For information only – more than 50,000 people applied there for 2021, a little over 2,000 were accepted. “, added Hristanov. Applications and admissions are document-based, and Harvard is one of the universities where the pandemic has removed the requirement to submit a document for a successful SAT. The ideal candidate for Harvard must have an excellent academic profile, active participation in high quality school and extracurricular projects, motivation, commitment and determination.

Around 50 percent of the registered participants in the online exhibition organized by Integral in mid-September showed interest in just one subject.

However, the preferences as areas show the same trends regardless of whether the prospects are in 10th, 11th or 12th grade. Most interested are business, economics and finance, followed by computer science and information technology in second place and art and design in third place. The top 10 also include: media and communication, humanities, politics and international relations, engineering and natural sciences, mathematics, law, tourism. There is also interest in subjects such as medicine, language and literature. New preferences are emerging that have previously been lacking, such as physical therapy, music and singing, food processing and technology.

Traditionally, most students apply from the French High School in Sofia, Second and First English High School, SMG, NPMG, Plovdiv Language High School, National Trade High School in Plovdiv, Romain Rolland High School in Stara Zagora, Geo Milev High School in Burgas, Ioan Ekzarh High School in Varna, Hristo Botev Language High School, Kardzhali.

For the first time in Bulgaria, four renowned American universities will present their stands: University of Connecticut, Pace University, Arizona State University and Simmons College. Some of them offer up to 50% discount on tuition fees.

For the first time, the host institutions include the Swiss Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL), which occupies a leading position among universities for hospitality management (QS World University Rankings 2019, 2020 and 2021) and its gastronomic restaurant Le Berceau des Sens is the only school of World with a Michelin star. The prestige of Swiss education in the hotel and tourism sector is supplemented by the participation of 4 schools of the Swiss Education Group, which are also placed in the top 10 of the QS ranking.

Secondary schools and boarding schools from Europe will also have their own stands. For the first time, the David Game College is participating – an independent private college for secondary education in the heart of London. The college prides itself on the excellence of its students and partners with over 98 universities. Over 70% of graduates are admitted to top universities by the Russell Group. The university offers a scholarship of 30% of the tuition fee for natural sciences (chemistry, physics or biology) and a music scholarship of 20% of the tuition fee.

Other secondary students coming back to Bulgaria are Kings Education (UK), Aiglon College (Switzerland), Sidcot School (UK), d’Overbroecks (UK), Oxford Sixth Form College (UK), Oxford International College (UK), ACS Cobham International School (UK).

During the exhibitions in Sofia and the country, in addition to the opportunities for direct encounters with the participating universities and grammar schools, an accompanying program of seminars on specific goals and topics that are relevant for prospective students and their parents will be offered.

Bulgaria will borrow BGN 500 million https://moiteplanini.com/bulgaria-will-borrow-bgn-500-million/ https://moiteplanini.com/bulgaria-will-borrow-bgn-500-million/#respond Mon, 04 Oct 2021 18:12:00 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/bulgaria-will-borrow-bgn-500-million/

The Ministry of Finance and the Bulgarian National Bank have announced a date for a new auction in which the country will offer government bonds with a term of 5 years with a total value of BGN 500 million. The Bulgarian Central Bank officially announced this today. The size of the issue is a record for the Bulgarian domestic market.

The experts have set October 11 for the collection and, according to the BNB announcement, want zero interest rates on the securities. This will not set a precedent and just a month ago a new issue of 5 year securities reopened, which were sold at a negative yield of 0.15%. In practice, this means that investors pay the state to borrow money. It is now expected that the same return will be achieved with negative values.

So far this year the country has withdrawn BGN 1.3 billion and if this auction is successful the amount will grow to BGN 1.8 billion. No particular surprise is expected from creditors – banks, pension funds, insurance companies.

The debt ceiling for this year has been set at 4.7 billion BGN, which will finance the budget deficit. However, all of this money is unlikely to be withdrawn as the budget is in the red for the third month.

Pak-Bulgaria agree to strengthen bilateral economic cooperation https://moiteplanini.com/pak-bulgaria-agree-to-strengthen-bilateral-economic-cooperation/ https://moiteplanini.com/pak-bulgaria-agree-to-strengthen-bilateral-economic-cooperation/#respond Sun, 03 Oct 2021 15:16:08 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/pak-bulgaria-agree-to-strengthen-bilateral-economic-cooperation/

ISLAMABAD, October 03 (APP): Pakistan and Bulgaria agreed on Sunday to strengthen bilateral economic cooperation in various sectors and intend to secure investment in various potential areas on both sides.

Both countries agreed to initiate the proposal to invest in various potential areas such as information technology (IT), food processing and tourism sectors for investment, according to a press release from the Board of Investment (BOI) here.

The Secretary of the Investment Committee (BOI), Ms. Fareena Mazhar, received the Bulgarian Ambassador to Pakistan, Ms. Irena Gancheva, in her office to discuss the different areas of cooperation, economy and investment.

The Bulgarian ambassador further emphasized that there are many opportunities and potentials for mutual investment between the two countries.

The ambassador expressed particular interest in the Pakistani IT sector from an investment point of view and underlined the importance of Pakistan’s strategic location as a gateway to the Asian market.

She added that Bulgaria shares its border with Turkey, which makes it the first country in the European Union in terms of its geographic location in relation to Asia and can serve as a gateway to the European market for Pakistani products.

The ambassador said that food processing, especially yogurt and cheese production, was Bulgaria’s specialty and that it was a cheap sector to invest in Pakistan.

An MoU has been signed between the Invest Bulgaria agency and the Board of Investment, which must be implemented with full force, she said.

While Secretary BOI briefed the Ambassador on regulatory reforms introduced by the Board of Investment that have made Pakistan’s business climate immensely investor friendly.

She went on to say that the COVID situation in Pakistan has improved and the government has dealt with the pandemic efficiently, making it easy for foreign investors to visit Pakistan and stay safe.

Regarding priority investment areas, Ms. Fareena said that the Pakistani government is promoting investments in the textile and food processing sectors with added value.

The secretary assured that a virtual meeting between the Investment Committee and its Bulgarian counterpart, the Invest Bulgaria agency, will be organized by the end of this month in order to rejuvenate the MoU and further explore possible areas of cooperation.

2021 presidential elections in Bulgaria: GERB-supported Gerdzhikov-Miteva ticket introduced https://moiteplanini.com/2021-presidential-elections-in-bulgaria-gerb-supported-gerdzhikov-miteva-ticket-introduced/ https://moiteplanini.com/2021-presidential-elections-in-bulgaria-gerb-supported-gerdzhikov-miteva-ticket-introduced/#respond Sun, 03 Oct 2021 10:23:53 +0000 https://moiteplanini.com/2021-presidential-elections-in-bulgaria-gerb-supported-gerdzhikov-miteva-ticket-introduced/

The candidacy of the Rector of Sofia University Anastas Gerdzhikov and Vice-President Colonel Nevyana Miteva in the presidential elections in Bulgaria in November 2021 was presented at a ceremony on October 3 in Sofia.

The Gerdzhikov-Miteva-Ticket is officially nominated by an initiative committee with more than 70 members, including well-known personalities and academics, and is supported by Boiko Borissov’s GERB-UDF coalition with non-partisan status.

“I’m not a politician, I don’t think and speak like one, and I imagine that I won’t become one,” said Gerdzhikov, who has headed the University of Sofia since 2015.

“I am not a party member, I am not a candidate of the party and I expect the support of all citizens who recognize the need to lend a hand to save us from the current situation,” said Gerdzhikov.

He said he accepted the nomination because “I believe everyone has to pay back at some point in their life what they have received from their country and compatriots”.

He promised his campaign would be positive and said the goal was to restore normalcy to political relations. Members of the initiative committee, who spoke to journalists at the kick-off event, emphasized the difference between Gerdzhikov and incumbent President Roumen Radev, who is seeking a second term, and accused Radev of creating division in the nation.

“I am a Bulgarian like you,” said Gerdzhikov, “who is ready to take responsibility and pay the price for having contributed at least a little to the union. When I say association, I don’t mean politicians and parties, but the people and the nation, ”he said.

In the presidential elections in Bulgaria on November 14th, Radev has the support of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, the ITN of Slavi Trifonov and the party We set the change from Kiril Petkov and Assen Vassilev as well as some smaller formations.

The Movement for Rights and Freedoms has announced that it will nominate its own presidential candidate, but has indicated that it would support Gerdzhikov should the election go into a second round between Radev and Gerdzhikov.

The Justice for All initiative, which has been campaigning for real judicial reform in Bulgaria for several years, has announced that it will nominate the outgoing chief of the Supreme Court of Cassation, Lozan Panov, for president. Panov’s vice-presidential candidate is journalist Maria Kassimova.

In an interview with Bulgarian National Radio on October 3rd, the co-chairman of the Bulgarian Democratic Coalition, Hristo Ivanov, said it was natural for the coalition to support Panov’s candidacy. The constituent parties of democratic Bulgaria are discussing the matter.

The presidential election will also feature a number of candidacies from ultra-nationalist and far-right parties, including Valeri Simeonov of the National Front for the Rescue of Bulgaria and Volen Siderov, the leader of Ataka. The pro-Russian party Vuzrazhdane nominated its chairman, Kostadin Kostadinov, as a candidate for president.

On the same day as the presidential election in November, Bulgarians are going to parliamentary elections for the third time this year, after the previous two failed to produce an elected government.

The fourth wave goes around the world, in our country it is not so steep, which affects the number of people who are treated in hospital.

Prof. Kozhuharova pointed out that the capacities of the hospitals are very carefully not exhausted, people can receive medical care.

“Another problem is that many of them would not need such health care if they had been vaccinated,” he said Epidemiologist.

Prof. Kozhuharova, who is also an advisor to the Minister of Health, defended the measures introduced, as they were implemented in time, and pointed to the smooth development of the patients. They would be a lot less if they had been vaccinated, she said.

The epidemiologist advised people to avoid unnecessary contact and stated that this advice applies to those at higher risk, those who have not been vaccinated.

Prof. Kozhuharova commented that there has never been a lockdown in the real sense of this measure in our country – there was no lock at home and no going out.

“There is no talk of a lockdown at the moment. Of course, some measures can be more compulsory and strict, but it makes sense to do so at the county level. For example, where there is a problem with the capacity of hospitals. “” Said Prof. Kozhuharova.

Concern was about the need to educate children online, the concept for now is that students should study normally because the educational gaps that have been closed last year and possibly now have very far-reaching implications, she added.
