COVID-19: Indonesia to export PPE to South Korea as compensation for raw materials

first_img“We should not just have other countries send PPE [raw materials] to our homeland and not give some [finished products] back. Once again, cooperation is very important,” Doni said.Previously, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani said that Indonesia, as one of the world’s largest PPE producers, had made an agreement with other countries, including South Korea and Japan, to contribute to their PPE supply.Read also: The time is right: COVID-19 gives more room for telemedicine to grow in IndonesiaShe said the government would ensure that PPE exports would not affect domestic supply since Indonesia’s trade partners had understood that the country was in need of PPE as well. Indonesia must export ready-to-use personal protective equipment (PPE) to South Korea as a form of compensation after the government bought raw materials from the country to meet domestic PPE production needs, COVID-19 task force chief Doni Monardo said on Monday.“Please understand that no country can meet its own needs,” the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) head said after a meeting with President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo via video conference on Monday.Doni said the deal was a common one between countries needing to meet their logistics needs and that Indonesia should not risk a raw materials shortage by not cooperating with other countries. “Many countries desperately need PPE and require immediate supply to their country,” Sri Mulyani said. “But South Korea and Japan have agreed that we should meet domestic needs before helping other countries that lack PPE manufacturers.”National Mandate Party (PAN) lawmaker Saleh Daulay, criticized the government’s move amid the worsening COVID-19 pandemic, saying that it was alarming since the domestic need for PPE had yet to be fully met.“It certainly leaves a concern in the community because the need for PPE in the country has not yet been fulfilled,” Saleh told kompas.com on Friday, adding that the government should prioritize all resources for national countermeasures.The government said it aimed to produce 16,000 pieces of PPE per day and claimed to have distributed as many as 700,000 pieces to all provinces in Indonesia as of April 9, with plans to distribute another 300,000.Topics :last_img read more

Standard Drilling names Deloitte man as CFO

first_imgCyprus-based S.D. Standard Drilling has named a new chief financial officer with effect from July 1, 2017.The company previously announced that Espen Lundaas, the interim CFO of Standard Drilling, was considering resigning from his position due to other commitments.Standard Drilling said on Monday that Christos Neocleous has now been appointed as the new CFO of the company through an agreement with Deloitte Cyprus and would be based in Limassol.Lundaas will be available for the company during a transitional period and will continue to assist the company and its subsidiaries going forward.Neocleous has more than 25 years of experience and has been a partner in Deloitte Cyprus since 2009. He is a Fellow member of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants (FCCA), a member of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants (ICPAC) of Cyprus and a member of The Association of Accounting Technicians (MAAT).Martin Nes, SD Standard Drilling chairman, said: “We are extremely happy to welcome Christos on board as CFO. He has been involved in the company as an external advisor since its incorporation, and is well-versed in the company’s business and history.”It is worth reminding that Standard Drilling completely switched its strategy from being an operator of rigs to being an investment company within the oil and gas service sector after selling all initial jack-up rig building contracts.The company moved from offshore drilling to the PSV market last August through the acquisition of stake in a company which owned three mid-sized PSV vessels.By the end of February 2017, Standard Drilling owned 100 percent of three large-size PSVs and had invested in additional 13 mid-size PSVs, bringing its total fleet of partly and/or fully owned vessels up to 16.Also, S.D. Standard Drilling took a stake in New World Supply (NWS), which holds six platform supply vessels previously owned by the financially distressed vessel owner World Wide Supply. The company initially bought a 15.6 percent ownership stake and an additional 7.7 percent in mid-March. After acquiring an additional stake in April, the company currently holds 26.2 percent of the total outstanding shares of NWS.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

Gallagher and Evans revel in win

first_img “Nobody comes to see our races, so it’s pretty exciting that our sport has that much of a profile,” said Northern Irish skier Gallagher. “We are getting a lot of coverage at home. “When we won two World Championship medals when we first started ski racing together you couldn’t tell a sponsor about it.” Evans added: “Our sport is being looked upon as a proper sport and there are so many people watching this and it is exciting. “We’re used to having six people watching us, that’s if we’re lucky. This is a big event and the pressure’s huge.” The news got even better for the British team as Jade Etherington and Caroline Powell won bronze in the same race, their second medal of the Games, to take Britain’s tally to three, already exceeding UK Sport’s target. Gallagher and Evans were the first of the six pairs down and had an anxious wait to see if their time would be good enough. Slovakia’s Henrieta Farkasova, the downhill gold medallist, was expected to go quicker, but crashed, and when Australian Melissa Perrine also failed to finish, British gold was secure. And the celebrity response was a new experience for the pair. On when she saw the Tweet from Beckham, Evans said: “I thought it was her fake account and had to check she was verified and she was. “And then I danced around and screamed a little.” On Tuesday, though, the pair, along with Etherington and Powell, have the chance to raise the profile of the sport yet further, with both in action in the super combined, which features a super-G run followed by the slalom. Evans said: “Super combined is a tough discipline, probably one of our most difficult. It’s got a lot of elements of change.” Whatever happens now, though, history has already been made. Great Britain’s history makers Kelly Gallagher and Charlotte Evans were relishing the chance to keep their sport in the spotlight after winning the country’s first ever Winter Paralympic crown. Visually-impaired skier Gallagher and guide Evans claimed victory in the super-G in Sochi on Monday, bouncing back in emphatic fashion from the disappointment of finishing last in the downhill two days earlier, a result which knocked Gallagher’s self-belief for six and left Evans a “blubbering wreck”. This time they were revelling in messages of congratulation from the likes of David Cameron and Victoria Beckham, which followed the cheers from the packed stands at the Rosa Khutor Alpine Centre.

Essequibo Cricket Board AGM and Elections set for Sunday, says Bacchus

first_imgPRESIDENT of the Essequibo Cricket Board (ECB) Fizul Bacchus confirmed yesterday that the ECB Annual General Meeting (AGM) and elections will be held tomorrow at the ECB hostel, and as usual it will be run in a transparent manner within the constitutional framework of the board.The ECB AGM and Elections is constitutionally due on or before January 15, 2017.Meanwhile, Secretary of the ECB, Aotto Christiani, is contending that due procedures were followed regarding the AGM, and as such, he is rubbishing the claims made by president of the North Essequibo Cricket Committee, Prince Holder.Holder, in a recent article published by Chronicle Sport had claimed that no notice of meeting was sent to the respective representatives but instead the Secretary informed him via a telephone call.This too, he said, is unacceptable and against the constitution since notices should have been given at least ten days prior to the meeting.“The usual procedures were followed as it regards the notice of meeting. Notices were sent to all eight area committees,” Christiani said.Asked when the notices were made available to the respective area committees, the ECB Secretary said, “I can’t remember the specific date the Notices were sent out, since some of the Notices were by postal, but subsequently, I made contact via telephone to all area committees informing them of the meeting.”Fizul BacchusThe eight area committees are: Bartica Cricket Committee (BCC), Central Essequibo Cricket Committee (CECC), East Bank Essequibo Cricket Committee (EBECC), Leguan Cricket Committee (LCC) North Essequibo Cricket Committee (NECC), Pomeroon Cricket Committee (PCC), South Essequibo Cricket Committee (SECC) and the Wakenaam Cricket Committee (WCC).Bacchus is expected to return unopposed as president of the ECB for another term.

FIFA hands 1300-page corruption report to Swiss authorities

first_imgBy Brian HomewoodZURICH, Switzerland (Reuters) – FIFA has completed a 22-month internal inquiry into allegations of high-level corruption and criminal misconduct that buffeted world football and handed its report to Swiss authorities, football’s ruling body said yesterday.“FIFA will now return its focus to the game, for fans and players throughout the world,” said FIFA president Gianni Infantino, elected last year to replace Sepp Blatter, who is under criminal investigation in Switzerland.In a statement, FIFA said that more than 2.5 million documents were reviewed during the investigation and that the report it shared with Swiss authorities ran to 1 300 pages and included more than 20 000 pages of “exhibits” or documentation.The investigation began after several dozen football officials, mainly from Latin America, were indicted in the United States in 2015 on corruption-related charges, sparking the worst crisis in FIFA’s 113-year history.Some of the suspects have pleaded guilty and await sentencing, others face trial and some are in their native countries where they are fighting, or have avoided, extradition.FIFA said its report would also be made available to U.S. investigators.In Switzerland, the attorney general’s office has begun criminal proceedings against Blatter and former FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke on suspicion of offences including criminal mismanagement“FIFA is committed to conducting a thorough and comprehensive investigation of the facts so we could hold wrongdoers within football accountable and cooperate with the authorities,” Infantino said in the FIFA statement.Swiss prosecutors “will continue to pursue those who enriched themselves and abused their positions of trust in football”, he added.The statement from Zurich-based FIFA gave no further details and said that, because of the criminal inquiries under way, it was “legally restricted from releasing or commenting on the findings from its internal investigation”.The Swiss Attorney General’s office confirmed in a statement that it had received the report and said it “appreciates the preliminary exchange of information and FIFA’s close and consistent cooperation”.Blatter has been banned for six years and Valcke for 10 by FIFA’s own ethics committee. Both have denied wrongdoing and Valcke has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Blatter has already lost an appeal at CAS.In September, FIFA opened a new ethics investigation into Blatter, Valcke and former finance director Markus Kattner for possible violations including bribery and corruption.FIFA said then that the allegations were in the context of salaries and bonuses paid to the three.last_img read more

Chris Nenzani steps down as Cricket South Africa president

first_imgCHRIS Nenzani stepped down as the Cricket South Africa (CSA) president on Saturday, three weeks before his term was due to end.Nenzani has been under increasing pressure in the face of administrative upheaval and left his post within hours of the organisation sacking its chief operating officer Naasei Appiah, and a day before the men’s national squad begins a culture camp. The post will remain vacant until CSA’s annual general meeting on September 5.Appiah, along with former head of sales and sponsorships Clive Eksteen, who was dismissed in June, is taking CSA to court to contest the decision to sack him. Appiah was found guilty of “transgressions of a serious nature”. Meanwhile, suspended CEO Thabang Moroe met with CSA last week but his case did not reach resolution. It is expected to conclude this week and ESPNcricinfo understands Moroe is likely to be dismissed as well, on the evidence of a forensic audit, which CSA commissioned when Moroe was suspended last December.A CSA statement, issued on Monday morning, gave no reason for Nenzani’s exit, and thanked him for his time in office. “Mr. Nenzani has provided valuable leadership, insight, assistance and direction in advancing the game of cricket with a focus on achieving transformation and access for the majority of the South African population,” the statement read.Not everyone feels that’s enough, though. “Given what has happened over the last nine months, the president owes stakeholders an explanation for why he is stepping down now,” Andrew Breetzke, SACA CEO, told ESPNcricnfo.Nenzani had been in the position since 2013 and served two three-year terms, the second of which was extended through a change in CSA’s constitution in 2019. That gave Nenzani an additional 12 months, to see CSA through a difficult period. But he has since said he regretted staying on.It is also during this time that Nenzani has come under the heaviest criticism. Since December last year, CSA’s disputes with the South African Cricketers’ Association (SACA), initially over a proposed domestic restructure which has since been repealed and then over unpaid commercial rights’ fees, came to a head, three independent and one non-independent board member resigned, a major sponsor – Standard Bank – opted not to renew their deal and seven staff members, including Moroe, were suspended.A common demand among the players’ body, the board members who walked away and commercial partners was that Nenzani step down because of his role in the administrative crisis that ensued when Moroe was appointed on a permanent basis in July 2018.Under Moroe, CSA launched the Mzansi Super League but were unable to sell television rights for the two editions played to date, costing them in access of Rand 200 million (USD 11.49 million approx.).Additionally, CSA is forecasting losses of Rand 654 million (USD 37.58 million approx.) over the four-year cycle ending in April 2022, but is expected to report a profit for the 2020 financial year. In an attempt to mitigate against the losses, CSA proposed a new domestic structure, which would eliminate the franchise tier of the current system. SACA argued that up to 70 cricketers could lose their jobs if that happened, and took CSA to court to prevent the changes and rescinded when CSA U-turned on the restructure.Moroe also sought to overhaul the national men’s team structure, with a view to appointing a team director to replace the head coach and a director of cricket. He courted Graeme Smith for the latter role but Smith only signed on after Moroe was suspended and then did away with the idea of team director, appointing Mark Boucher as head coach. Despite that, South Africa endured their worst summer since readmission, winning just one of the five series they played in.The waters have remained choppy since the Covid-19 outbreak, which has seen the Black Lives Matter movement take centre stage in South African cricket. In recent weeks, former players and current coaches of colour have flooded the media with stories of exclusion and blamed the administration for not doing enough to create an environment that was comfortable for everyone.Nenzani was interviewed by Marawa Sports Worldwide last week and conceded that CSA had missed an opportunity by not appointing Geoffrey Toyana as head coach when Ottis Gibson got the job in 2017, an admission which prompted a fresh round of criticism on Nenzani’s leadership. Despite CSA’s assertion that Nenzani played a positive role in advancing transformation – under him a black African quota was introduced in 2013 and targets were increased the following year – Nenzani has found himself in the midst of the racial schisms currently playing out.Nenzani has undertaken to address the media at the conclusion of next month’s AGM where a new president is expected to be named. The president is chosen from the group of provincial presidents who sit on the CSA board (five of the 14 provincial presidents are members of the board) and there is no obvious candidate to replace Nenzani. Vice-president Beresford Williams has been identified as a possible successor.(ESPN Cricinfo)last_img read more

Game 7 Rewind: Trojans overpower Beavers in unexpected shootout

first_imgThe story: No. 4 USC avenged an early-season defeat from a year ago, beating Oregon State — just barely — in a closer-than-expected shootout, 42-36.The Beavers had two chances to get the ball back late in the fourth quarter but failed to stop the USC offense on two third-down plays.“It sucks,” said Oregon State quarterback Sean Canfield, who completed 30-of-43 passes for 329 yards and three touchdowns. “We just ran out of time. We didn’t make enough plays and they made more.”USC (6-1) led 21-6 at one point and 42-23 at another, but Oregon State (4-3) didn’t let up and pushed its way back into the games on both occasions.“It’s a lesson learned,” fourth-year junior linebacker Michael Morgan said. “We shut them down for the most part in the first half but they came out as a different team in the second half.”Key play: Shortly after the start of the fourth quarter, USC receiver Damian Williams took a punt back 63 yards for the touchdown, opening the Trojans’ lead up to 42-23.At the time it looked like it would be the dagger in the Beavers’ collective heart.Oregon State did manage to put together two consecutive touchdown drives to get the score close, but Williams’ touchdown proved to be the difference.“We needed a big play, and we were real fortunate to make that play,” Williams said. “The biggest thing was the blocking. I told the guys that all they had to do was give 100% on that play and I’d do the rest.”USC coach Pete Carroll mentioned after the game that special teams coordinator Brian Schneider had switched up the blocking schemes just before the return occurred.“Damian’s punt return was exhilarating — the play of the year,” Carroll said. We were anticipating that this might be the one, and it was.”Most valuable player: Fourth-year junior running back Allen Bradford. Bradford ran a career-high 15 times for a career-high 147 yards, including two touchdowns and six first downs.He didn’t spell starter Joe McKnight until midway through the second quarter. From that point on, McKnight rushed the ball only three times while Bradford ran all over the Oregon State defense.“I feel like I can go out there and display how fast I am and how physical I am,” Bradford said. “And that’s all I want to do.”Surprise performance: After a forgettable one-catch performance at Notre Dame a week prior, junior receiver Ronald Johnson led the Trojans in receiving with six catches for 99 yards and a touchdown against the Beavers.Johnson also made an impressive diving catch on a corner route that got the Coliseum crowd roaring early in the second quarter.“It doesn’t get any better than that,” Johnson said. “Making a comeback like that, it just feels perfect.”Johnson missed the first five games of the season with a broken collarbone before making a largely uneventful return in South Bend.Saturday, he earned his first start of the season and did wonders with it.“’We’ve got RoJo back’ is the statement that he made today,” Williams said. “He’s been that playmaker in the past, but we’ve needed him this season.”“He’s back, and we can count on him.”The Rodgers brothers: Jacquizz and James continued to terrorize the Trojans, producing a combined 317 all-purpose yards Saturday.James, the elder brother and a receiver, caught seven passes for 56 yards, ran six times for 46 yards and amassed 96 kick return yards.Jacquizz, a running back, rushed for 115 yards on 20 carries despite missing the entire second quarter.“He’s intense,” middle linebacker Chris Galippo said of the true sophomore, who ran for 194 yards against the Trojans in 2008. “He’s super explosive, he’s really shifty, he’s got tremendous balance. He does a whole bunch of things really well. “Neither brother weighs more than 200 pounds nor stands taller than 5-foot-7. Still, they continued to puzzle USC.Said receiver Ronald Johnson: “Hey, whatever works for them, right?”Stat of the game: 482 yards on offense to 429. The Oregon State offense outgained the Trojans for the second consecutive year.“They are probably the most explosive offense we have played,” USC safety Taylor Mays said. “With Jacquizz and James [Rodgers], it has to be the best offense we have played.”The Rodgers brothers weren’t so complimentary of their own performance.“If you don’t win, it doesn’t really mean anything,” Jacquizz Rodgers said. “It would’ve been good if we got the win.”Quote of the game: “It was like the opposite of last year.” – USC defensive coordinator Rocky Seto compared the Trojans’ win to the upset in Corvallis.Last year, USC lost 27-21 despite a furious second-half comeback after starting the game off in a 21-0 hole.This year, the Trojans almost let Oregon State do what they couldn’t manage to.“We had a slow start last time,” Seto said. “This game we started off better than them, but then they got the momentum in the second half.”“We switched it around.”last_img read more
