PREMIUMJokowi’s approval of Jakarta islet development stokes criticism

first_imgPresident Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has chosen to allow development on reclaimed islets in Jakarta Bay in a new regulation, much to the chagrin of activists who view it as a green light for unfettered development.The new regulation formally recognized reclaimed islets C, D and G – which are being developed by private companies – and N, developed as an expansion to Tanjung Priok port by state-owned operator PT Pelindo II, as zones with low environmental carrying capacity.The Perpres, known as Perpres Jabodetabekpunjur (Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi, Puncak and Cianjur), allows residential, industrial and warehouse construction, as well as commerce and tourism on the four reclaimed islands, provided the built-up area of each islet is less than 40 percent.The new regulation bans waste disposal on the islets, any activities that could harm local ecosys… Linkedin Facebook #reclamation reclamation Jakarta-Bay #Jakarta LOG INDon’t have an account?

Trump to resume coronavirus briefings after hiatus

first_imgThe briefings ended in early May after the new White House of chief staff, Mark Meadows, sought a new focus for the president’s messaging on the subject.In the weeks since, the Republican Trump has received negative reviews and fallen in opinion polls for a seemingly hands-off approach to the pandemic. He has lost ground to Democrat Joe Biden, his presumptive rival in the Nov. 3 election.Last Friday Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway told reporters she favored a return of the briefings, which she said had bolstered his approval ratings.White House advisers say Trump’s daily appearances could put pressure on Biden, who has limited his campaign appearances amid the country’s struggle to control the pandemic. US President Donald Trump, under fire over his administration’s response to the surging coronavirus, said on Monday he will resume holding news briefings on the pandemic after a lengthy hiatus.He told reporters in the Oval Office the resumption was prompted by a “big flareup in Florida, Texas, a couple of other places.” The virus has killed 140,000 Americans and infected some 3.7 million, both figures leading the world.White House debate has centered on whether Trump should risk doing daily briefings after he was mocked for musing that people might inject household disinfectants as a way to protect themselves from contracting the virus. Trump said he expected the first new briefing would take place about 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT) on Tuesday.”We’re going to give you a lot of briefings over the next week and the next few weeks,” he said.He said he would bring in the heads of some companies involved in the search for vaccines and other treatments for the virus, such as Johnson & Johnson.center_img Topics :last_img read more

No pressure for Jol at Anfield

first_img The Fulham manager admitted feeling “very lonely” after his side slumped to a 3-1 home defeat against Manchester United on Saturday. Jol’s side lie 16th in the Premier League, two points above the relegation zone, but he said: “I don’t think you are under pressure against Liverpool or Manchester United. You are under pressure in your home games against teams who should lose points against us, for example Crystal Palace. Martin Jol will feel no pressure when he sends his Fulham side out against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday despite being booed off the field last weekend. “If they (the fans) are disappointed I can understand that,” Jol said. “The only disappointing thing was with Ruiz. As long as we don’t have the results they can do it (boo) with me, but hopefully they will support the team. We are not in the best of situations, but we are not in the worst.” As for pressure, Jol admitted there is no room for sentiment: “It is part of our profession. I look at my mates such as Chris Hughton (Norwich) and in the past with Roberto Martinez at Wigan. If you go out of the league at the end like Wigan did that is disastrous. “But I feel we are good enough and better than other clubs. With the spirit we have I think we will be fine.” Asked if he shared problems with such as Hughton, he added: “No, the difficult thing is that we are in the same boat and I would rather win myself than these other teams, even though they are my friends. I can’t be a hypocrite and say I would love Hull City (to win) with Steve (Bruce), one of my good colleagues.” “The main thing is that I am positive. I remain positive because I think we are good enough to get results against teams who are a bit better or worse than us and we will have points on the board. “We did that against Stoke and Everton and Crystal Palace and Sunderland away from home. “There will be four or five teams not as good as we are and I really believe that which is why I am positive.” Against Liverpool Jol will be missing right-back Sascha Riether who was banned for three matches after being charged by the Football Association for stamping on United’s Adnan Januzaj towards the end of Saturday’s defeat at Craven Cottage. Fulham initially asked the FA for clarification on its retrospective action rule after Riether was charged with violent conduct but have now accepted the punishment. Jol said: “If he did do it deliberately it is fair enough to get three games. The referee didn’t see it. I didn’t see it, but they decided to give him that punishment and people around me said it was probably something deliberate. “He said it was not deliberate but he apologised to the club, to the fans and to us. It is not what you need, but we move on.” Defender Brede Hangeland and striker Bryan Ruiz, the latter having suffered the venom of the Fulham crowd when he was substituted on Saturday, face late fitness tests and Jol is sure Ruiz will shrug off the abuse.

Theophane wants Bradley or Morales

first_imgKilburn’s Ashley Theophane says he is determined to challenge for a world title within the next 12 months.Theophane, 31, is due to defend his British light-welterweight crown against Nigel Wright later this year and then wants a crack at Timothy Bradley or Mexican great Erik Morales.American Bradley, the WBO champion, is unbeaten in his 27 fights and has been mooted as a possible opponent for Britain’s Amir Khan, who holds the WBA and IBF belts.AdChoices广告Morales is 35 and considered past his best, but is the WBC champion and still a big name in the sport having won titles in four weight divisions and been involved in classic fights against fellow Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera.And Theophane is convinced his recent link-up with promoter Ricky Hatton – himself a former light-welterweight world champion – will pave the way for a shot at the big time.He said: “Ricky was the king of the 140lb division and he has passed the mantle over to me. I want to fight the world’s best and Ricky can make that happen.“Over the next 12 months I want to win the Lonsdale belt outright and fight Erik Morales or Timothy Bradley for the world title.”The fight against Wright will be Theophane’s second defence of the title he won by outpointing Lenny Daws at Wembley in February and retained by stopping Welshman Jason Cook at the same venue in June.He is currently training in the United States, where his sparring partners have included former welterweight world champion and one-time Hatton opponent Luis Collazo.“I feel with Ricky Hatton behind me, I can achieve anything,” Theophane added.“Ricky believes in my talent and I feel like he can get me a shot at the world title. He has been where I want to go on the world scene.”www.twitter.com/westlondonsportlast_img read more
