Buses that have been allowed to operate will be given a special sticker.“After the holiday ends […] we will continue to monitor the roads and will have tow trucks on standby. We will also spray incoming vehicles with disinfectant,” Adita said.The Transportation Ministry last week allowed public transportation to resume operations by opening all air, land and sea transportation services, a move that drew strong criticism from experts.The government, however, has been adamant that the mudik ban is still in effect despite relaxations on restrictions.Topics : The government will tighten its monitoring of the Idul Fitri mudik (exodus) ban as the Islamic holiday, which falls on May 24 and 25 this year, approaches, the Transportation Ministry said.“We have to be prepared for more people trying to travel. Therefore, we will add more personnel to safeguard the checkpoints,” Transportation Ministry spokesperson Adita Irawati said during a press briefing on Tuesday.The mudik ban, which is based on Transportation Ministerial Regulation No. 25/2020 signed by acting minister Luhut Pandjaitan on April 23, applies to all types of mass transportation as well as to private vehicles and is seen as crucial to prevent the SARS-CoV-2 virus from spreading from the epicenter of Jakarta and West Java to other regions of the country. read more

Lost Seoul: S.Korean middle-class dreams spoiled by soaring house prices

first_imgEven with unemployment spiking as the coronavirus pandemic swept South Korea in February, Baek Seung-min asked his wife to quit her nursing job to help reach a dream they had spent a lifetime chasing: buying their own apartment.The 35-year-old interior designer said giving up his wife’s 58 million won ($48,000) salary would improve their chances of securing a property after the government introduced a host of measures aimed at cooling rampant property prices.The unusual plan was to cut his wife’s income for a while so the couple’s annual earnings were low enough to be eligible for a quota system in new property developments designed to give more low-income newlyweds access to housing. Anger at inequalityWhen the left-leaning Moon took office in 2017, his central promise was to create a level playing field for all South Koreans and a society where hardworking people could raise a family and afford a home.But tighter mortgage rules featuring vastly lower loan-to-value ratios, along with various tax penalties to discourage speculative transactions, are contributing to higher rents and larger down payment requirements – hurting those the policies are intended to help.Mortgage rules for Seoul now cap borrowing at 40% of the value of the home. Pockets of the glitzy suburb of Gangnam are also subject to a transaction permit system, meaning sales without a permit can be made invalid if a purchase is considered “speculative”.Critics say such policies mean the “gold spoon” children of the wealthy can snap up the best homes with their cash, leaving “dirt spoons” trapped as second-class citizens – fuelling the inequality Moon promised to tackle.While some families are cutting their incomes to improve their chances of getting a boost onto the property ladder, others are getting divorced on paper to reduce real estate taxes or not registering their marriage to keep separate home-buying applications, according to two lawyers and a tax accountant Reuters spoke to.Anger at Moon’s economic policies has wiped out a surge in his approval ratings from the handling of the coronavirus pandemic, slipping back to a near nine-month low of 44.5%, according to a Real Meter survey on Thursday.The Presidential Blue House declined to comment for this article.On Tuesday, Finance Minister Hong Nam-ki said stabilizing home prices was the government’s biggest public welfare policy goal as plans were announced to add more than 132,000 new homes in Seoul through 2028.Middle class ticketFor decades following the 1950-53 Korean War, South Koreans saw a degree from a top university and an apartment in Seoul as the fastest way to the middle class, which explains why about three-quarters of household wealth is concentrated in real estate.But now, “dirt spoons” who studied hard and secured white-collar jobs such as lawyers and interior designers say the cooling measures Moon introduced have made it impossible for them to buy a property in Seoul even with a six-figure salary.It now takes an average Korean household more than 14 years of income to buy an average Seoul home, assuming zero expenses. It was 11 years when Moon took office, KB Bank data shows.Hong Na-ri, a lawyer who rents a three-bedder with her twin daughters and husband in Seoul, says her family is priced out of the property market.The price of the flat Hong has been renting in Seoul’s Songpa neighborhood has more than doubled to 1.8 billion won since she moved to the area in 2015.”When I got married [in 2015] I believed prices will go down…now everyone asks me why didn’t buy one when I could. It makes me anxious, but there is nothing I can do,” said the 35-year-old, whose combined household income ranges from $6,700-$10,000 a month.”It’s not like I can move outside of Seoul, away from our babysitter, preschool, and my job.”Moon is trying to fix structural problems in the economy.He has sought to rein in the powerful chaebol conglomerates such as Samsung and Hyundai, which have seen their profits far outstrip household income growth. Tighter mortgage rules were introduced because the easier credit available under his predecessor was blamed for initially stoking the housing bubble.Yun Chang-hyun, a conservative economist and member of parliament for the opposition United Future Party, says the government’s approach is creating more uncertainty about future.”More than 20 separate set of measures without success has caused stress and anxiety among people they must buy something now or never.” Even so, Baek and his wife decided to settle two hours west of his Seoul workplace in Incheon, where borrowing rules were looser and apartments far cheaper.”Seoul home prices grew way out of reach, we had to go all the way to Incheon to buy our place,” Baek said. “The government is crushing our dreams when they curb loans and tell us not to buy homes, it enrages me.”Despite more than 20 cooling policies introduced by President Moon Jae-in’s government, home prices in Seoul have risen more than 50% since 2017, the fastest pace in the world, according to statistics site Numbeo.The surge has dashed the hopes of many young families and signaled that the “middle class contract” that helped build Asia’s fourth-largest economy may have slipped out of reach.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Is TV damaging our kids’ brains?

first_imgBay of Plenty Times 11 June 2012Children under 3 should not be watching any television and those up to 7 should be limited to 30 minutes a day, says a Bay of Plenty child pyschotherapist. Parents are jeopardising their children’s futures, Augustina Driessen says, by allowing them to vegetate in front of the television for hours a day. Mrs Driessen believed up to 75 per cent of children could be suffering problems associated with media overload. She said children were becoming monosyllabic and introverted through addiction to television, and urged parents not to take the easy option.Bob McCoskrie, national director of Family First NZ, agrees. “One of our major concerns is that the 8.30pm watershed for families is just a farce. There is sexual content, foul language and sexual innuendo in programmes as early as 5.30pm. Also adult-rated programmes are being promoted during the kids’ viewing times, which is simply wrong. There have been plenty of studies which show the adverse affects on children of prolonged exposure to violence and sexual content. “TVs in bedrooms are just asking for trouble. Would you let an adult sit and talk, unsupervised, to your child about absolutely anything? No, yet we let TV do it. We shouldn’t let TV be the babysitter.” Mr McCoskrie, who has a home in Mount Maunganui, said television could open children up to new areas of learning but asked at what cost. “TV can give opportunities, that’s agreed, but I think the question I would ask is what are children giving up when they are sat in front of a TV? They’re missing out on playing outside, reading books, doing homework, being creative, getting fit and interacting with other people, person-to-person, face-to-face.” But Geoff Lealand, associate professor of screen and media studies at Waikato University, said concentrating on television could blind people to more important issues. “Worrying excessively about the alleged effects of television often deflects attention from more significant factors in children’s lives, such as poverty, poor nutrition, inadequate parenting and that can be a problem.”http://www.bayofplentytimes.co.nz/news/danger-lurks-in-a-corner-of-the-room-warns-expert/1412417/last_img read more

Palliative sedation a ‘peaceful way to die’

first_imgChristchurch Press 17 Sep 2012Within 10 minutes of having her first dose of sedative, Col Pieper’s terminally-ill mother drifts to sleep. A medication pump is set up to continuously give her the sedative midazolam to ensure she stays asleep until she dies. Three and a half days later, she dies peacefully, as she had chosen. Pieper, a West Coast-based registered nurse, says her mother had originally wanted to be euthanised, but switched her thinking only weeks from death once she learned about palliative sedation. She could choose because she lived in the Netherlands, one of a few countries in the world to legalise euthanasia. The euthanasia debate has reignited in New Zealand with Labour MP Maryan Street’s End of Life Choice private member’s bill, which she lodged in the ballot box in July. It must be selected before it can be considered by Parliament. Late last month, Prime Minister John Key faced strong criticism from the medical profession after claiming euthanasia was happening in our hospitals and that he would consider it if terminally ill. Hospice New Zealand’s clinical director, Associate Professor Sandy Macleod, says Key was incorrectly informed but agrees the public has little knowledge of other end-of-life options, such as palliative sedation. “In euthanasia, you are trying to kill the person. In palliative sedation, you are trying to kill the intractable symptoms,” Macleod says. “There are plenty of options other than killing people that we have at our disposal.” Palliative sedation is quite common practice in New Zealand hospices when someone is within days of death and suffering distressing, uncontrollable symptoms, such as delirium or extreme breathlessness, he says. A Christchurch study found a quarter of people dying at the city’s hospice had palliative sedation, he says. In the Netherlands, medical guidelines state a terminally-ill person must be within two weeks of death and suffering unbearable symptoms that are unrelieved by treatment to qualify for palliative sedation. While no such formal guidelines exist in New Zealand, it is discussed in the Palliative Care Handbook.http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/7687633/Palliative-sedation-a-peaceful-way-to-dielast_img read more

Sharapova ‘legend with mind of champion,’ says Djokovic

first_img “You have achieved a lot in your life so far and I know this is just the start.” Men’s world number six Stefanos Tsitsipas, who was only five when Sharapova won Wimbledon in 2004, said many of the Russian’s rivals can only be envious of her success. “I think many people are jealous of the career that she had,” said the Greek, also playing in Dubai this week. “Obviously she was behind Serena, another great athlete. I would say after Serena she’s probably the best after her. “She had a really good career with great victories, great achievements in tennis. I think she added a lot to our sport.” WTA chief executive Steve Simon added: “She will be greatly missed by her millions of fans around the world, but I know this will also mark an exciting new beginning for Maria as she now focuses on her many business ventures, charitable activities and other outside interests.” Novak Djokovic hailed Maria Sharapova as a “legend” with “the mind of a champion” after the Russian superstar announced her retirement from tennis at the age of 32 on Wednesday. End of the road: Maria Sharapova leaves the court after her defeat to Donna Vekic at the Australian Open in January in what turned out to be her final match Five-time Grand Slam champion and former world number one Sharapova called time on her career after losing a long-term battle with shoulder trouble having amassed a total of 36 WTA titles, spending 21 weeks on top of the rankings and with a personal fortune estimated at $300 million. “Her impact on the sport, not just women’s tennis, but tennis in general, was great. It still is great,” said world number one Djokovic in Dubai where he made the quarter-finals on Wednesday. “She’s a very smart girl, someone that I know very well for a long time. She has the mind of a champion, someone that never gives up. She’s shown that especially in the last five years. “She had a lot of obstacles and difficulties, especially with her injuries and everything that she had to endure in order to give herself at least another chance to play competitive tennis. “For someone that has won five Grand Slams and has been No. 1 of the world, a legend of the sport. She should be proud of everything she has achieved.” US legend Billie Jean King said Sharapova had been a “great champion” ever since becoming an overnight sensation as a 17-year-old Wimbledon champion in 2004. “From the day @MariaSharapova won her first #Wimbledon title at age 17, she has been a great champion. A 5x major champion and a former World No. 1, her business success is just as impressive as her tennis achievements. Maria, the best is yet to come for you! #MissYouMaria,” tweeted 12-time major winner King. Petra Kvitova, a two-time Wimbledon winner, who defeated Sharapova in the 2011 final at the All England Club, praised the Russian’s “hard work and fight”. – ‘Fight for everything’ – “It was a pleasure to share the court with you @MariaSharapova. We always had great battles when we played and I have so much respect for your hard work and the way you always fight for everything,” tweeted the Czech.

Cleverley enjoys winning feeling

first_img The Manchester United midfielder collected his first Premier League title medal at the end of last season. Memories of the celebrations that followed still linger. And like so many of his team-mates have found down the years, now Cleverley has experienced the winning feeling, he does not want to lose it. “We’ve got the best examples ever,” said Cleverley. Tom Cleverley has got the taste for trophies. “The desire from (Ryan) Giggs, Rio (Ferdinand), (Paul) Scholes, Wayne (Rooney) is what you want. They have all won a number of titles and they’re still so hungry to win more. We follow on from that – that feeling passes down to us. We want to be here in 10 years saying we’ve got six, seven or eight medals. You’re brought up like that at this club.” The most satisfying part of last season for Cleverley was the manner in which United responded to the loss of their title to Manchester City. Not for them the nail-biting last-day drama of an injury-time championship triumph. The Red Devils achieved their aim with four games to spare and eventually settled for an 11-point advantage over City, who could not use bad luck as an excuse. “We did really well last year,” said Cleverley. “We didn’t just win it, we won it in style after the previous year, which really hurt us. We want to retain the title now. The victory parade was incredible and makes us want to win more and more, especially those of us for who it was the first time. We want to be there again and again, going through Manchester on that bus.” Yet Cleverley has a personal battle ahead of him. One of the key components in Roy Hodgson’s England World Cup squad, Cleverley is heading into the unknown at Old Trafford. For with Paul Scholes retired and Darren Fletcher facing major question marks over his future, new manager David Moyes has made strengthening his midfield a priority. A move for Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas is already under way, whilst Everton’s Marouane Fellaini and Yohan Cabaye from Newcastle have been linked with Old Trafford moves. It does not faze Cleverley, though. Speaking after Saturday’s 5-1 win over an A League All Stars outfit at ANZ Stadium, the 23-year-old insisted no amount of speculation will disturb his focus. “There will always be world-class competition at a big club like this,” he said. “Manchester United gets linked with big players. It’s no different this year but I don’t really take much notice of it. I just play my football.” Press Association Cleverley admits he has enough on his plate getting used to a new manager. He said: “We always had to impress Sir Alex Ferguson. He challenged us every day. Now David Moyes is in charge but the aim is no different. We are all working hard to impress him.” Although United’s original intention had been to fly straight out of Sydney last night on the near 10-hour journey to Tokyo, once it was established airport restrictions would stop them, it was decided to stay on for another full day. It provides a further opportunity to take advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities that have been on offer before an overnight flight takes them to Japan for two games in three days and a reunion with Shinji Kagawa. Back home in England, chief executive Ed Woodward will continue to hunt for new players ahead of that opening Premier League encounter at Swansea on August 17. There were definite signs Moyes’ squad are stepping up their own preparations with a much-improved performance, during which Danny Welbeck and Jesse Lingard both scored twice and Wilfried Zaha also impressed. “All the lads would say the Thursday and Friday sessions were really sharp,” said Cleverley. “We’ve definitely hit that extra gear. You can definitely see in training that the intensity has stepped up and the players are getting to know each other better. All the boys are really enjoying the new manager’s training. We are moving forward and we want to keep it like that.” last_img read more

Remi Garde hopes draw with Manchester City can inspire Aston Villa

first_img “We will see in the way he (Aguero) improves this week but I think he can be (fit after the international break). It will be easier for us to have a striker. “Bony has a hamstring injury and we will see on Monday how long he will be. Maybe he must go (with the Ivory Coast) because the doctor of his country must review him but I don’t think he will be playing.” City are unbeaten in their last nine games and Pellegrini is pleased with their form despite missing key players. “It’s important for the squad to win the amount of games we did and not to lose in this part of the season when we didn’t have important players,” he added. “That’s why it’s important to still be top of the table, qualifying in the Champions League and still be in the Capital One Cup.” Boss Remi Garde insists Aston Villa’s precious point against Manchester City should inspire his new side’s Premier League survival fight. They are still winless since the opening day of the season but former Arsenal midfielder Garde, who replaced Tim Sherwood last week, believes it should boost his new club. He said: “We have to believe we can be safe. It will be a tough mission even if we have one more point. “You have to be lucky but you have to work hard, luck is not coming knocking on your door and saying ‘look, I’m here’. You create that, the behaviour you need to get lucky. It would have been very disappointing for us not to get a point if they had scored. “A clean sheet against such a good team, who have such good players all over the field, means we should be a little bit more confident next time. “It was a good occasion to do it. I t was City, and City were full of confidence, they had a brilliant game in Sevilla, so I think it’s a good point to work on.” Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham saw them miss the chance to go two points clear at the top following City’s stalemate and the teams are locked on 26 points heading into the international break. The break comes at the right time for City after Wilfried Bony came off in the the first half with a hamstring injury and will be assessed b ut David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Pablo Zabaleta and Samir Nasri could all return for City when they host Liverpool in two weeks. Boss Manuel Pellegrini said: “I hope they will do their last work with the physio and next Monday will start working with the squad. Rock-bottom Villa ended their run of seven straight defeats with a battling 0-0 draw at home to City on Sunday in Garde’s first game in charge. The result closed the gap to safety to five points but Villa survived scares after Fernando hit the bar in injury time and Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne missed clear chances.

Cricket News Happy Birthday Cheteshwar Pujara – Indian cricket team’s ‘New Wall’ turns 31

first_imghighlights After a failure in Perth, Pujara came onto his own with a century on a Melbourne pitch which was difficult to bat on. Along with Mayank Agarwal who hit 76 on debut and Virat Kohli who smashed 82, Pujara was the key factor in India registering a big total. Jasprit Bumrah wrecked the Australian batting with 6/33 as India won a Test in Melbourne after 37 years. His 193 in Sydney and his partnership with Rishabh Pant (159) ensured India clinched history.On his return, Pujara turned up for Saurashtra in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal against Uttar Pradesh in Lucknow. After falling to Shivam Mavi in the first innings, Pujara played a crucial knock of 67 and a century from Harvik Desai and another fifty from Sheldon Jackson helped Saurashtra chase down 372, the highest-ever score chasing in the fourth innings.Pujara would be aiming to help Saurashtra enter the final of the Ranji Trophy 2019 and the right-hander would be determined to give his side additional glory after securing history in Australia. A win Down Under and a Ranji Trophy triumph for Saurashtra would be the ideal birthday gift for a player who has established himself as the core of the Indian cricket team batting in Tests. Pujara scored three centuries against Australia Down Under. Pujara helped Saurashtra enter the semi-final of the Ranji Trophy.Pujara turns 31 on January 25. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: When Cheteshwar Pujara made his entry into the Indian cricket team in 2010, he was compared to Rahul Dravid for his technical acumen and solid defence. After the retirement of Dravid, who hit 13288 runs in Tests at an average of 52, Pujara stepped up to fill the void left by Dravid’s departure. After 68 Tests, Pujara has played a crucial role in India securing history during the recent series in Australia. On January 25, the Saurashtra player, dubbed the ‘New Wall’ of the Indian cricket team, turned 31 and it comes at a time when he is enjoying his best phase as a batsman.Pujara blasted three centuries in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney to end with 521 runs at an average of 74 as Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team won a Test series in Australia for the first time ever. Each century came at a time of adversity and ensured India held the momentum at crucial intervals during an intensely-fought Test series against an Australian side that were missing some of their star players. Pujara’s century on a tough Adelaide wicket changed the course of the game and his half century in the second innings gave India a 31-run win as India registered a win in an opening Test of a series Down Under for the first time.last_img read more

Time Machine: 15th-seeded Richmond upsets 2nd-seeded Syracuse, 73-69

first_img Published on March 18, 2016 at 6:29 pm Thus inspired, Burroughs sank both shots, making the score 72-69. The Orangemen moved the ball upcourt where Billy Owens missed an off-balance three-point attempt. Ownes rebounded his own miss and kicked the ball out to guard Adrian Autry, who was fouled with 8.9 seconds left.SU, however, was not in the bonus so the Orange had time to set up an inbounds play following a timeout.On the ensuing play, Owens, the game high scorer with 22 points, worked the ball to guard Michael Edwards, who had already sunk four three-point shots. Edwards, perched in the left corner, watched his shot roll off the side of the rim and bounce off teammate Scott McCorkle and out of bounds with 2.6 seconds left.Richmond guard Curtis Blair, the Spiders’ leading scorer with 18 points, was fouled by Hopkins with .7 seconds left. Blair connected on 1-of-2 free throws and the Spiders’ unexpected party began.“Needless to say, I’m delighted with the victory,” Richmond head coach Dick Tarrant said. “There were 40 minutes of never trailing. Our kids in every huddle said, ‘This is our game. We’re going to win it.’”The Spiders led by as many as 10 points and owned a 44-36 halftime advantage.Still, SU had many opportunities in the game’s final minutes to ruin the Spiders’ Cinderella invitation. The game ended slightly before midnight, however, and Richmond vehemently aborted the Orangemen’s attempts to turn its stage coach into a pumpkin.An 8-2 SU spurt from 4:22 to 2:00 cut the Spiders’ lead to 68-67 when Owens used a double-pump fake to score. After Richmond guard Gerald Jarmon was fouled by Hopkins and missed the front end of a one-and-one, SU had the ball with 1:29 to play.SU was never able to get into the game until the final minutes. No Orangemen run exceeded a six-point swing and the undersized Spiders appeared to grab every key rebound on its offensive end.“We knew they were going to make a run at us, but we were able to hold their runs off,” Wood said. “I think they had a run and we pulled the lead back up to eight or nine, and that gave us a lot of confidence.”Owens agreed that the Spiders’ offensive rebounding continually thwarted SU.“The main things was they hurt us on the boards,” Owens said. “They got a lot of offensive rebounds and they have the confidence to bring (the ball) back out and start it all over again.”In the first half, Richmond shot 61.5 percent from the field en route to its eight-point lead. The Orangemen were consistently burned from the outside by Connolly (14 points), Chris Fleming (8) and Blair. Comments Editor’s note: The article below is a republished story from The Daily Orange’s coverage of Syracuse and Richmond NCAA Tournament matchup in men’s basketball on March 14, 1991. The Richmond win was the first time a No. 15 seed had beaten a No. 2 seed. On Friday, Middle Tennessee State became the eighth team to pull off such an upset and will face Syracuse on Sunday. COLLEGE PARK, Md. — It wasn’t a movie.But the sights, sounds and unbelievable reality of the 15th-seeded University of Richmond’s 73-69 victory over second-seeded Syracuse in Thursday night’s NCAA first-round East Regional game seemed straight out of a Hollywood screen play.It was live, not memorex.While a Cole Field House sellout crowd of 13,386 howled in delight, the Spiders, 22-8, celebrated at center court amid the glaring lights of TV cameras. The Orangemen, 26-6, were abruptly thrown out of their accustomed spotlight.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt was the first time a No. 15 seed has defeated a No. 2 seed in NCAA Tournament history.“Upset against Syracuse,” said a reflective Spider forward Kenny Wood. “Not too many people get this opportunity. Young kids dream about this, coming into a sold out arena against a nationally ranked team…we had nothing to lose, really.”While every good fairy tale has a storybook ending, so too did the Spiders’ version of Hoosiers.The Orangemen, who never led, had closed within one — at 70-69 with 21 seconds left — for the second time in the last two minutes of the game.SU guard Mike Hopkins then fouled Spider freshman guard Eugene Burroughs, who played just six minutes in the game. Burroughs faced a one-and-one and perhaps the longest 15-foot shot he’s ever take.To make matters worse, SU took a timeout to let Burroughs ponder his pressure situation.What does a college freshman playing the biggest game of his life do at such a moment? Well, if you’re Burroughs, you calmly wink at one of the faces in the crowd.“I was a little nervous because I hadn’t played that much the whole game,” Burroughs said. “Then I saw my dad in the crown and he kind of pumped his fist in the air and that inspired me.”MORE COVERAGE: Malachi Richardson, equally unpredictable and unfazed, is ready for the big stageSyracuse puts 2014 NCAA Tournament loss to Dayton in past with 70-51 win over FlyersGallery: Syracuse beats Dayton in Round of 64 NCAA Tournament matchupFast Reaction: 3 quick takeaways after Syracuse’s 70-51 blowout of DaytonDayton collapses under pressure of Syracuse’s early second-half run Related Stories Malachi Richardson, equally unpredictable and unfazed, is ready for the big stageSyracuse puts 2014 NCAA Tournament loss to Dayton in past with 70-51 win over FlyersGallery: Syracuse beats Dayton in Round of 64 NCAA Tournament matchupDayton collapses under pressure of Syracuse’s early second-half runFast Reaction: 3 quick takeaways after Syracuse’s 70-51 blowout of Dayton Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
