first_imgThe government’s COVID-19 task force has updated its requirements for transportation during the transitional phase to the so-called “new normal”, requiring domestic travelers to carry a medical document certifying they are free of COVID-19 valid for 14 days.The regulation, stipulated in Circular No. 9/2020, was issued by task force chief Doni Monardo on Friday, updating the previous Circular No. 7/2020 on the same subject issued on June 6, a day after the capital enacted the transitional phase.“Every individual traveling by land, sea or air transportation must present a negative PCR [polymerase chain reaction] or rapid test result certificate that is valid for 14 days from departure,” the updated regulation says. This is different from the previous regulation, which required a PCR test certificate valid for seven days or a rapid test certificate valid for only three days.Apart from the validity period of the health document, other measures remain the same in the updated version.Here is the list of other requirements for domestic travel:- Bring personal identification cards and a medical certificate stating you are free from influenza-like illnesses, issued by a doctor from a hospital or a community health center (commuters within an agglomerated area are excluded from this requirement) – Implement health protocols (physical distancing, wearing a mask, bringing hand sanitizer)- Download and activate the Peduli Lindungi application on Appstore or PlaystoreMeanwhile, international travelers wishing to enter Indonesia are required to:- Conduct a PCR test at the time of arrival, unless they already carry a test certificate from the country of departure.- The above provision does not apply at cross-border posts (PLBN), which do not have PCR equipment, but international travelers arriving in the posts are required to undergo a rapid test and carry an influenza-like illness-free certificate.- While waiting for their PCR test results, international travelers must undergo quarantine in a location specified by the government, or undergo self-quarantine at a hotel or other place certified by the Health Ministry.- International travelers are also required to download and activate the Peduli Lindungi application on Appstore or Playstore.Travelers testing positive for the coronavirus must immediately isolate themselves.The government is working closely with regional administrations, health authorities, public transportation managements and security personnel to monitor traveling activities.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgThe Dutch Pensions Federation has argued against the position of supervisor De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) that pension funds should adhere only to the principle of ‘one man, one vote’ on their boards. In the DNB’s opinion, the idea that a vote that carries proportionally more weight than other stakeholders’ seats could come at the expense of a balanced assessment of interests and have a negative impact on the dynamics within a board.It said it could also have an impact on the time available for board activities, as well as on the suitability of board members.The supervisor said new governance legislation should not allow weighted votes on a scheme’s board. “The purpose of equal representation is that not one of the parties on a board has a decisive role in decision making,” it said, adding that an exception might be allowed in the case of a vacancy. However, the Pensions Federation claimed that DNB’s view was legally unsustainable and undesirable, as it would hinder a board’s ability to govern effectively and efficiently.The lobbying organisation referred to the Code for Pension Funds, as well as the Pensions Act, which would allow for an exception of the ’one man, one vote’ principle, it said, adding that a number of schemes already worked with such an approach. “Pensions funds should, of course, explain their choice, and also make clear how they have taken a balanced assessment of interests into account,” the federation said. In its opinion, a well-functioning board does not have a fixed scale, and the quality of the board depends on its members.The Pensions Federation said it wanted to resolve the issue with the DNB before 1 July, when all pension funds must comply with new governance legislation.Roos Kuip, the federation’s spokeswoman, said the lobbying organisation did not know the number of schemes that already applied a weighted vote, but added that several pension funds had already pledged their support for the federation’s initiative.last_img read more

first_imgMathieu Flamini believes Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has done Arsenal a “good favour” in selling Petr Cech to the Gunners. Press Association He is now likely to start at Wembley on Sunday when his new club Arsenal meet Mourinho’s Premier League champions in the Community Shield. The traditional curtain-raiser will give Arsene Wenger a chance to measure his current Arsenal side against the league’s yard-stick and Flamini feels the acquisition of Cech is something the club must make use of. “I was surprised by Mourinho because he really doesn’t do that,” Flamini was quoted as saying in several national newspapers. “He (Mourinho) is a competitor and usually doesn’t like to sell any players to his rivals, but it’s a good favour for us and now we have to take advantage. “It’s a top signing. That’s why we have been lucky on this one.” Having added the attacking talents of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck in recent summers, Wenger has now strengthened at the other end of the pitch – and France international Flamini reckons the advantages of having Cech on board stretch beyond his goalkeeping abilities. “It’s very important. Not only for his quality but also for his character,” added Flamini. “When you play at the top level, the leaders on the pitch make the difference. “Not only when things go well but especially when things go bad. So, for us, Petr Cech is a top signing. “He is someone with character, someone with a winning mentality.” center_img The 33-year-old goalkeeper ended a long association with Chelsea to move across London to the Emirates Stadium earlier in the summer. Having lost his position as first-choice stopper to Thibaut Courtois, Cech was allowed to leave Stamford Bridge even though Mourinho was keen to keep hold of the Czech Republic international. last_img read more

first_img Published on February 2, 2013 at 5:54 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2 All season long, Quentin Hillsman has preached defense. It’s been the head coach’s primary point of emphasis. Play defense, force turnovers, and the offense will come naturally.It’s led to success all around. The Orange ranks seventh in the nation with 13.1 steals per game. It’s powered through much of its schedule with a swarming defense and up-tempo offense, seldom playing close games.On Saturday, SU’s turnover-forcing defense was as good as it’s been all year.“As a coach who likes to press, you look at every opportunity for the press,” Hillsman said. “It’s funny because you don’t want to turn the ball over, but obviously when you turn the ball over and you get into your press it helps you.”Syracuse (18-3, 6-2 Big East) came up with 22 steals in its 75-59 win over Providence (6-15, 1-7) in front of 994 at the Carrier Dome on Saturday. In the first half alone the Orange nearly matched its season average with 13 steals. Rachel Coffey had four in the first half and five overall. Carmen Tyson-Thomas grabbed three more steals herself after a pair in the first half. In all, the swarming SU defense forced the Friars into 27 turnovers—17 of which came in the decisive first half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse blew out Seton Hall on Wednesday with Tyson-Thomas sidelined after having a tooth pulled. Brittney Sykes filled in fine and the defense was again great, but the difference that Tyson-Thomas makes was evident against the Friars.Less than eight minutes into the game the Orange set up its press after a pair of free throws. Coffey and Tyson-Thomas stood at the top, just beyond midcourt and double-teamed PC forward Alexis Harris. Coffey came up with a steal, sending SU running the other way. The guard lofted a pass down the court to an unsuspecting Tyson-Thomas. The senior made the over-the-shoulder catch anyway and laid the ball in to give Syracuse a 13-10 lead.“I was a little winded of course in the first,” Tyson-Thomas said, “but I felt good to be back, to be back in the flow of my team, helping my team do what we do, bringing in the energy.”Later in the half, it was the same duo wreaking havoc. With 3:26 remaining in the half the Orange had methodically worked its way to a double-digit lead.Again the defense was out on the press and Tyson-Thomas matched up with Chanise Baldwin near midcourt. The Providence forward attempted to fire a pass towards the middle of the SU defense. Tyson-Thomas got in the passing lane, though, and smacked the ball down. Coffey came up with the loose ball and again sent it down the court to Tyson-Thomas, who dropped in an easy layup. Syracuse extended its lead to 12. The Friars wouldn’t get any closer.“Playing together over the last couple of years that she’s been here we signal to each other,” Tyson-Thomas said of her relationship with Coffey, “we know when to go, when to gamble, when not to, and when I tip, she goes and gets it and when she tips I go and get it.”The Orange created 29 points off those turnovers – 18 in the first half – and finished with 12 fastbreak points. It meant hard work for the pressers on defense, but just as Hillsman preaches, easy offensive success as well.Though center Kayla Alexander finished with four blocks, for long stretches she had it easy. Oftentimes the opposition never got to set up its offense. The press did its job in creating instant offense, and also sparked the team.“Between Rach and Carmen up top getting all those steals all the time, one gets the steal and the other one just lays it up,” Alexander said. “So it’s nice to get a breather going on the defensive end. And we get the energy up, momentum, too.”While Coffey was the one grabbing the steals, it was Tyson-Thomas finishing those plays at the other end. She scored her six first-half points all in transition. Four of them were off the steals she and Coffey created.By the end of the first half, PC simply could not keep up with the Orange. Coffey and Tyson-Thomas had overwhelmed the Friars.With Tyson-Thomas the press is a different animal. It’s deeper, and more dynamic. By halftime on Saturday, it had put the game away.“She’s active, she plays very hard and she’s an important part of our success and we know that,” Hillsman said. “I don’t think anyone in the country has a player that comes off the bench every night and contributes the way she does.“You’re talking about sixth man of the year she’s it because she brings intensity and you have to game plan for her, too.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgOn Sunday, Leonid Yelin registered his 500th career win. But when he spoke about the monumental victory Tuesday he remained levelheaded.“Normal,” the head coach said when a reporter asked how the win felt.After a 0-4 start to Syracuse’s Atlantic Coast Conference tenure, the Orange has started to pick up the pace. SU has won three of its last four matches, all on the road.This weekend the Orange (8-12, 3-5 ACC) will try to continue its success as it faces Georgia Tech (7-13, 1-7) on Friday at 7 p.m. in the Carrier Dome and Clemson (10-9, 4-4) on Sunday at 1 p.m. in the Women’s Building.During the first half of the season, the players had a tendency to get down on themselves. Whether this has to do with the lack of hope or just a physical inferiority to the teams faced early in the season, the team is in better spirits now.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It feels awesome,” outside hitter Silvi Uattara said. “After we beat Maryland, we got this feeling we can compete with all the teams in ACC.”Yelin doesn’t feel the team has really done anything different to improve chemistry. Instead, it just happened naturally.“We didn’t change anything,” Yelin said, “I hope they are learning something. We kept doing what we were doing, it was just a little bit better.”Setter Erica Handley said keeping a positive attitude could go a long way.“Yes, I have won in the past,” the freshman said, “but I have also lost in the past, too. You can be down about it for a while and be upset because you lost, but you have to build off those mistakes and be positive for the next game.”But Yelin insists there’s been no change in morale. It’s a natural transformation that comes with success.“I think people are always happy when they are winning,” Yelin said.With the team gaining confidence, other teams have begun to notice. Being an underdog has benefited Syracuse.“No one expected anything from us because we are a small team,” middle blocker Monika Salkute said. “And we did it so powerful. When we started playing our game they were so scared. You could see it in (Pittsburgh’s) eyes.”Uattara explained that getting into the heads of the other team is key. Syracuse can target one player and attempt to disrupt her, or intimidate the whole team. Uattara and Salkute both said they could see the other team shaking with fear.A newfound sense of urgency is beginning to take over.“We have to beat them,” Salkute and Uattara said simultaneously.
