first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRepublicans also not putting America firstMr. Homan’s Feb. 3 letter should have been entitled “Politicians are not putting America first” and not just single out the Democrats.I’m a registered Republican, and I wonder why is it when a Trump Republican cult member makes an argument such as his, they never present the fact that the Republicans and Mr. Trump had control of both the Senate and the House for the past two years and they didn’t pass a single piece of legislation to give Mr. Trump his precious wall or any immigration reform.He asks why the Democrats all supported border security previously, including a wall, but oppose it now? He conveniently forgets that the bipartisan bill in December that included all these things was not signed by Mr. Trump.He also notes Democrats are importing more low-income persons illegally. And just how are they doing this importing? By not voting for a wall that persons can climb over or tunnel under?And then he goes even further by saying the Democrats can’t stand to see Trump win to fulfill his campaign promise. Are you referring to the promise he made on numerous occasions that Mexico would pay for the wall?Mr. Homan, if you want to put America first, why don’t you write to Mr. Trump and request he use his emergency powers to combat gun violence in Chicago and other parts of America?Mike NorrisDelanson Consider impact of negativity to TrumpYour opinion page is hurting this country. It’s all negative with the Trump administration. You’re not the only newspaper doing this unfortunate reporting. If we put one of these crazy liberals as president, we can kiss this country good-bye. I know this letter is going to be laughed off until it hits you personally. Please think of your children.Joseph ParilloBallston SpaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusGov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes I’m appalled that Gov. Andrew Cuomo passed the Reproductive Health Care Act.With this act, you are becoming the killer of thousands of unborn babies. This is truly a genocide against the human life — the weak, the handicapped and the poor —  starting with the womb, where life is created. The RHA was concealed in false propaganda. This act does not help women. It does the opposite. What’s next? Are we going to start selective breeding through involuntary sterilization because you have judged individuals physically or mentally unfit to reproduce? How far are you willing to go, governor? Babies, who are precious and innocent, have now become “undesirables” in New York state. A child in the mother’s womb isn’t even considered a human being anymore. My mother delivered me eight weeks early. Was I not considered a child to you? Are you not going to stand up for the unborn? No one has the right to kill a child in the womb or out of the womb. Just as Abel’s blood cried out to God for revenge (Genesis 4:10), so does the blood of the innocent babies cry out to God and demand justice. The Lord will be the one who will avenge these heinous sins. What you do to one of them is inflicted upon us all. It is truly a sad time for the state. I pray for you because Jesus tells us to pray for those who persecute us. God have mercy on us.Eva LoucksBallston Spa Legal pot. Gambling. Is prostitution next?Now that we are moving forward to legalize recreational marijuana and expanding gambling, the time is right to add the world’s oldest profession to the list: prostitution. Consider the following:The governor has said he isn’t legislating morals or religion; everyone has a fundamental right to decide what they want to do with their own bodies; current laws have a greater impact on minorities; state regulation and rules will make it safer for those involved; and the state will enjoy a new stream of revenue.

first_imgThe World Bank’s transportation specialist, Elena Chesheva, said the government should continue with the consolidation of small contracts into larger ones of more than Rp 30 billion ($2.1 million) to attract bigger firms.“Such measures are expected to increase efficiency in procurement and attract new, larger players to the market with the economy of scale and stronger quality assurance system,” she said.The size of large contracts has been increasing over the years, with 72 percent of the spending packages recorded to be above Rp 30 billion, rising from 31 percent in 2013, according to the World Bank’s report.The government is also urged to decrease its reliance on state-owned enterprises (SOE) to execute toll and national road projects, while allowing private companies to build economically viable projects as SOEs were already highly leveraged.“We recommend that the government revise its decision-making [process] and consider whether the project is good for leveraging private financing before looking at the potential allocation for public-sector financing,” Elena said.The World Bank’s report shows that the liability-to-equity (LE) ratio of SOEs involved in toll and national road development projects has already reached a high level.Toll road operator Jasa Marga, construction company Waskita Karya and Hutama Karya’s average LE ratio in 2017 stood at 3.8, more than twice as high as the average LE ratio for comparable private firms in emerging markets.In the water and sanitation sector, the World Bank report found that the majority of city and regency-owned tap water companies (PDAM) were relying heavily on government subsidies as they were operating in a state of loss. This had hampered efforts to upgrade into using the PPP framework.“From more than 400 PDAMs across Indonesia, only 10 percent are financially healthy. Half of the PDAMs don’t even impose fees on their customers that could cover their full costs,” the World Bank’s water and sanitation specialist Irma Magdalena Soetiono said.Additional investment was critical for the government’s target of 100 percent access to clean water and improved sanitation services, according to the World Bank.Between 2001 and 2016, Indonesia spent only an average 0.2 percent of its GDP to develop and improve water and sanitation systems, the same rate as the Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic.“We urge the PDAMs to improve their financial condition, so that, in the future, they can be supported with nonpublic funding,” Irma said.Responding to the World Bank’s recommendations, Herry said the government divided infrastructure projects into “solicited” and “unsolicited” projects based on the project’s economic viability to increase private funding through PPP schemes.Infrastructure projects that were initiated and mostly funded by the government were labeled as “solicited”, while the private-company-initiated projects that were economically viable were labeled “unsolicited”.“For example, in toll road projects that are not viable, we assign Hutama Karya to run the project. However, it is a corporate decision to invest in toll roads that are viable,” he said.Topics : The government has increasingly been relying on the private sector to take part in developing, financing and managing the country’s ambitious infrastructure projects under the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) to ease the strain on the state budget.The National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) has estimated that the country will need infrastructure investment worth US$429.7 billion, equal to 6.1 percent of GDP, between 2020 and 2024.The government could only finance 30 percent of the infrastructure projects using the state budget, said the Public Works and Housing Ministry’s financing strategy director, Herry Trisaputra Zuna.“I believe what we need to do is use our limited budget to encourage the private sector rather than concentrating on conventional [funding] efforts,” Herry said during Thursday’s webinar. The World Bank has urged the Indonesian government to improve public-private partnership (PPP) financing schemes to attract more private capital that could fill the government’s budget shortage on infrastructure projects.“Mobilizing capital for financing infrastructure has been challenging for some sectors, particularly water resource management, where the infrastructure has been considered to be public assets and private-sector financing hasn’t been successful to date,” said World Bank energy coordinator Stephan Garnier.Garnier said Thursday during a webinar called Indonesia Public Expenditure Review 2020: Spending for Better Results that inadequate project planning may have also dampened interest from the private sector to invest in transportation.last_img read more

Christin Meisye Batfeny in a car crash. The accident occurred Wednesday in the South Jayapura district of Jayapura, Papua, at around 7:30 a.m.Police suspected that the deputy mayor was driving under the influence of alcohol, adding that the suspect was not carrying his driver’s license or vehicle registration at the time. “Our provisional conclusion is that the […] driver was not careful and was driving under the influence of alcohol,” Jayapura Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Gustav Urbinas told kompas.com on Wednesday.Read also: Two soldiers killed, 13 severely injured in road accident in PapuaAccording to reports, Erdi, along with one passenger, was driving at high speed toward the Entrop area of South Jayapura when he lost control of his car and swerved to the right lane. He then crashed into Christin, who was riding a motorcycle from the opposite direction. Gustav said the incident was recorded by a CCTV camera. “Due to the car crash, Christin suffered serious impact to the back of her neck, which resulted in her death and her right knee was torn and fractured,” Gustav said.He added that Erdi and the passenger in his car were undergoing a medical check-up at Jayapura Regional General Hospital to determine their blood alcohol level. Erdi was elected in 2017 as the deputy to Regent Lakius Peyon, with both expected to serve until 2020.

Share Tweetcenter_img EntertainmentHealthLifestyle Angelina Jolie to have more surgery by: – March 13, 2014 Angelina Jolie has confirmed she will have more cancer-preventing surgery, after a double mastectomy last year.The 38-year-old actress had the procedure after discovering she was at high risk of developing breast cancer.“I decided to be proactive and to minimise the risk as much I could,” she said at the time.Now in an interview with Entertainment Weekly she said she is “very happy” with her decision to have the operation.“There’s still another surgery to have, which I haven’t yet. I’ll get advice from all these wonderful people who I’ve been talking to, to get through that next stage,” she said.“I was very fortunate to have great doctors and very, very fortunate to have a good recovery and have a project like Unbroken to have something to be really focused on, to be getting healthy for, and to be able to just get right back to work.”She said she has had a lot of support from the public.“I was very, very moved by all the support and kindness from so many people.”The mother-of-six has previously explained her reasons for having the surgery, arguing she needed to minimise her risk after her mother died from ovarian cancer aged 56.In an article entitled My Medical Choice, she explained that her mother fought cancer for nearly a decade.Jolie’s partner, Brad Pitt, praised her choice as “absolutely heroic”.The Hollywood star’s doctors estimated she had an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer, because of genes she had inherited.Prof Hani Gabra, Director of the Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre at Imperial College, said women with the BRCA1/2 gene mutation have “a very stark choice”.“Medical science currently has limited options to help these women beyond removal of the breasts and/or ovaries,” he said.“However, by choosing to have a preventative hysterectomy and removing the ovaries and fallopian tubes will significantly reduce the chance of developing ovarian cancer.”Prof Gabra added: “By removing the ovaries the woman will lose her fertility and go through the menopause, which will be more sudden than going through it naturally and more slowly and increase her risk of developing osteoporosis and other conditions.“This obviously has significant impact especially if the woman is still planning a family. For any woman worried about this, they should discuss it with their doctor.”BBC News Sharelast_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Exciting EPL, La Liga, Serie A matches this weekend on DStv, GOtv Dan Gosling condemned Chelsea to a fourth defeat in five Premier League matches as Bournemouth triumphed 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. Gosling struck an 84th-minute winner when he flicked the ball over Kepa Arrizabalaga and into the net despite standing with his back to goal, ending Bournemouth’s run of five successive league losses. Kepa was made to pay for another bout of poor positioning, while Chelsea were punished for an incoherent and toothless display that will have left boss Frank Lampard far from impressed. Lampard has demanded more “personality” from his Chelsea players in a bid to arrest their league slump, but despite a host of big names there was precious little star quality on view in west London. Instead, in-form striker Tammy Abraham was too isolated too often, with teammates unable to provide the service to capitalise on his sharpness in front of goal. Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth headed into the clash missing eight injured senior players and fretting about the source of their next league victory. The Cherries had not won since seeing off Manchester United 1-0 at home on November 2, and would have expected a stern test in the capital. Howe’s men kept their heads and shape throughout however, even rebuffing a late Chelsea rally after Lampard threw on Michy Batshuayi as a second striker. While Bournemouth were left to toast a vital win, Chelsea could only lament another below-par league performance. After Tuesday’s high of seeing off Lille 2-1 to reach the Champions League’s last 16, this was a serious bump down to earth for Lampard and the Blues. Mason Mount spurned the finest chance of a wretched first half, unable to beat Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale who blocked well after Jorginho’s dangerous dink into the box. Abraham could not turn Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross goalwards despite a neat run and first-time effort, while Christian Pulisic failed to find a team-mate with a header across goal. Ryan Fraser saw a low shot blocked in a rare Bournemouth raid, but otherwise it was 45 minutes of bluster. Chelsea rode their luck on a host of occasions after the break as an emboldened Bournemouth started to chase the game. Kurt Zouma pulled off a fine last-ditch sliding tackle to deny Josh King, with an out-of-position Kepa furiously backpedalling. Jefferson Lerma was hugely fortunate to escape without conceding a penalty for elbowing away Willian’s free-kick as Chelsea rallied as the match ticked past the hour. Callum Hudson-Odoi added impetus off the bench, and his cross eventually led to Emerson Palmieri heading straight at Ramsdale. From point-blank range the Chelsea left-back should have easily nodded home. But instead the Blues were left to battle away as the turgidity continued. Lampard went for broke by sending on Batshuayi, sacrificing Jorginho in chasing a much-needed win. And yet it was Bournemouth prevailed, as Gosling conjured an improbable lob to stun Kepa, with Azpilicueta unable to clear off the line. The goal was rightly awarded after a Video Assistant Referee check, with the ball clearly crossing the line despite Azpilicueta’s best efforts – and Philip Billing not active as he was retreating when the ball was played in to Gosling.Tags: AFC BournemouthChelseaMichy BatshuayiStamford Bridgelast_img read more

first_img FOLLOW US Last Updated: 17th August, 2020 10:49 IST Jets Dealing With Injuries, Inexperience At ‘thin’ WR Group Breshad Perriman took off down the field and Sam Darnold saw him all the way. Written By LIVE TV First Published: 17th August, 2020 10:49 IST COMMENTcenter_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Associated Press Television News Breshad Perriman took off down the field and Sam Darnold saw him all the way.The ball zipped through the humid air and dropped right into Perriman’s hands for an impressive training camp practice touchdown.”Sam dropped a dime in there,” Perriman said Sunday, “and I was able to make the catch.”The New York Jets hope this is only a peek into what will be a season filled with highlights between Darnold and his developing but, for the moment, banged up group of wide receivers.“This receiving corps has a lot of unique traits,” Jamison Crowder said. “We’ve got size, we’ve got speed, bigger receivers. I think it’s going to be fun.”As long as they’re healthy, that is.Rookie Denzel Mims, the team’s second-round draft pick in April, has missed the first few practices of camp with a hamstring injury. He’s expected to be a key contributor this season, but coach Adam Gase acknowledged his on-field progress is being affected by every practice he can’t go.Vyncint Smith, who had 17 catches for 225 yards in an increased role in the offense late last season, is sidelined with a core muscle injury and is set to see a specialist to determine the next course of action.“Obviously, we’re a little thin right now,” Gase said. “We’ve got two guys that aren’t practicing.”That led to the Jets agreeing to terms on a contract Sunday with veteran receiver Chris Hogan, who was with Carolina last season but has also played with AFC East rivals Buffalo, Miami and New England.Crowder, who led New York with 78 catches last season, and Perriman, who broke out in the second half with Tampa Bay a year ago, are the only healthy starters. Other than Hogan and perhaps Braxton Berrios, the rest of the Jets’ receivers are a mix of unproven players trying to make their mark in the NFL. That group includes Jeff Smith, Josh Malone, Jehu Chesson, Lawrence Cager and George Campbell.“I like our young guys,” Gase said. “I like the way our guys developed. I think you’re always going to look at it as, hey, how do we improve. I mean that’s what Joe (Douglas) and his crew does. They’re always going to be looking to find somebody else to — if somebody is available that can help our team, they won’t be afraid to go get them.”For an offense that struggled mightily last year — New York ranked 27th in yards passing and last in total yards — the Jets need to bounce back in a big way.A lot of that is on Gase himself, and the coach has acknowledged he needs to use running back Le’Veon Bell more effectively. Douglas revamped the offensive line and the Jets will start five players in Week 1 who weren’t in the lineup in last year’s opener.Crowder said a “major X-factor” for the Jets’ passing game is the return of tight end Chris Herndon, who was limited to only one game last season because of a suspension and injuries.That should all help Darnold, who will be counted on to make a big leap in Year 3. But the lack of proven (or, healthy) receivers might make that a bit easier said than done. Darnold developed a good rapport with Robby Anderson over the past two seasons, but the receiver signed with Carolina in free agency.“All I know is that Robby had a great impact on our offense and he produced for us,” Darnold said. “I’m excited to have the guys that we have now, and guys are going to continue to learn this offense and grow within it. I’m just going to do my part in making sure that they understand what we have to do as an offense and where we go from here.”The speedy Perriman will almost certainly have plenty to do with that.After not living up to his lofty draft status as a first-round pick by Baltimore in 2015, Perriman was cut after training camp three years later. He signed with Washington, but was waived five days later and joined Cleveland in the middle of that season.Perriman signed with Tampa Bay last year and made the most of increased playing time because of injuries to Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. He finished with career bests in receptions (36), yards receiving (645) and touchdowns (six), with much of that production coming in the final month.“Last season was last season,” Perriman said. “It was a great run, but now I’m trying to tap into a whole other level.”He already likes what he has seen from Darnold, and their 50-yard touchdown play Sunday showed a glimpse of developing chemistry.“The touch he has is unreal,” Perriman said. “It’s so receiver friendly.” WATCH US LIVElast_img read more

Written By First Published: 29th August, 2020 13:28 ISTcenter_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Ty France had four RBIs and the San Diego Padres posted another comeback victory, overcoming an early four-run deficit to beat the Colorado Rockies 10-4 on Friday night.Eric Hosmer and Wil Myers each contributed four hits as part of San Diego’s 19-hit attack. Manny Machado had three hits while extending his hitting streak to 10 games. Zach Davies (5-2) struck out six in 5 2/3 innings, allowing four unearned runs in the first.Matt Kemp hit a three-run shot for Colorado, and Nolan Arenado finished with three hits.San Diego tied the game with three runs in the fifth and pulled away with a four-run burst in the sixth. After hitting a one-out double, Fernando Tatis Jr. showcased his speed in scoring the go-ahead run, advancing on a wild pitch that barely trickled away from catcher Tony Wolters and sprinting home just ahead of a strong throw from Sam Hilliard on Machado’s sacrifice fly to shallow center off Jeff Hoffman (2-1). France added a three-run double to put the Padres up 8-4.The Rockies jumped on Davies in the first, with most of the damage coming on Kemp’s third homer. None of the runs were earned because first baseman Hosmer dropped a relay throw on Charlie Blackmon’s fielder’s choice that would have completed an inning-ending double play. Davies walked Daniel Murphy before Kemp drove a 2-0 pitch into the stand of evergreens behind the wall in center.The game was played through intermittent rain in the early innings.PAINFUL HITPadres reliever Emilio Pagán took a hard shot off his leg on a stinging one-out comebacker by Raimel Tapia, which rolled toward third for a single in the ninth. Trainers came out to the mound to check on him but he managed to stay in the game.ROOKIE MILESTONESan Diego rookie outfielder Jorge Mateo registered his first career RBI when he singled in a run during the fourth inning. In the ninth, he made a spectacular diving catch to take a hit away from Arenado.TRAINER’S ROOMPadres: C Francisco Mejia is making steady progress in his rehabilitation of his bruised left thumb. He went on the 10-day injured list on Aug. 17. “ He’s getting a lot of at-bats and he’s continuing to improve” at the team’s alternate training site at the University of San Diego, said manager Jayce Tingler.Rockies: RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez (right biceps tendinitis) had a strong bullpen session Wednesday and is slated to throw again in the next couple of days. Sidelined since Aug. 7, Gonzalez is nearing a return. “He’s really close to being ready to pitch for us,” manager Bud Black said.(Image Credit Pixabay) LIVE TV WATCH US LIVElast_img read more
