Jakarta deploys free buses to reduce Commuter Line crowds

first_imgThe Jakarta administration has deployed 50 free bus services for Commuter Line passengers who live in the satellite cities of Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi, in a bid to reduce crowding on trains and stations as offices, shops and public facilities reopened in the capital on Monday.As the city administration starts easing the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) to curb the COVID-19 outbreak, large numbers of residents in Jakarta and surrounding areas have begun flocking  to the commuter train service again, creating long queues and packing train stations.The city has deployed 20 free buses at Cilebut Station and Bojonggede Station in Bogor regency, West Java, to transport passengers to five Commuter Line stations downtown: Juanda, Tanah Abang, Sudirman, Tebet and Manggarai. “At the moment, [the free bus service] is only available on Mondays. But we are trying to make them available on the other days as well to reduce passenger volume at the stations,” said Ade Yana, the head of the Bogor regency transportation agency, adding that each bus could carry only 13 passengers due to the physical distancing rules.Read also: Commuters return to public transport with more protective gearYuli, a commuter from Bojonggede district, said that the free bus service had helped her avoid the long queues at stations and the crowds aboard trains, especially during rush hour.“We can’t [practice] physical distancing and it’s uncomfortable. Here [on the bus], it’s more relaxed and comfortable, and we can maintain physical distancing,” she said on Monday as quoted by free buses serve routes from the satellite cities to the five designated downtown stations on Mondays and serves the return route from the stations to the satellite cities on Friday evenings.The Bekasi city administration is also planning to provide a free bus service for daily commuters to and from Jakarta, in light of the surge in Commuter Line passengers.Deputy Mayor Tri Adhianto said that Bekasi would provide at least 100 buses to serve commuters. “We can deploy them whenever necessary,” he said.

PIMCO urges caution on Europe amid rise of populist parties

first_imgBalls added: “Our bias is simply to be pretty neutral in terms of euro-zone exposure and to be very careful about less liquid parts of the European markets in our traditional portfolios. ”He explained that PIMCO’s traditional portfolios would avoid “high-risk, less liquid” European assets and cited concerns about the confiscation of assets in Portugal – following the Bank of Portugal’s decision in late December to impose losses on €2bn of bonds issued by Novo Banco.He also cited discussions in Austria to impose haircuts on bonds issued by Heta Asset Resolution, a bad bank, whose issuance were meant to be guaranteed by the federal state of Carinthia. PIMCO owns Heta bonds and in March was reported to have filed a lawsuit against Carinthia.It is also affected by the Bank of Portugal’s decision regarding Novo Banco debt.“It seems perfectly plausible, over the next 3-5, you’re going to have more and more cases where European governments or regional governments look to do bail-ins to address problems of excessive leverage, in the case of the euro-zone,” Balls said.“So, we’ll start off being very cautious about our euro-zone exposure.”Brexit not systemic riskDiscussing the likelihood of the UK’s leaving the EU following the 23 June referendum, PIMCO managing director Mike Amey said the company believed there was only a 40% chance of a so-called Brexit.Amey said the 60% likelihood the UK would remain was consistent with its initial assessment, and based on the risk of discussions around immigration, or another unforeseen event, swaying the vote.But the manager was largely unconcerned about the risk of Brexit for the wider global economy.“We would agree that, if we do vote to leave, growth would probably slow down to a ballpark of zero, or slightly above,” he said.“We don’t think it’s a systemic event in terms of its influence on the world. Clearly, it would be a big issue for the UK, but we don’t think this is an event that potentially derails the global economy.”For more on how to Brexit-proof your portfolio, see the current issue of IPE PIMCO is shifting to a more cautious stance on Europe in light of the rise of populist parties across the Continent, according to one of its most senior staff.Andrew Balls, CIO of global fixed income, said PIMCO had changed its previous approach to Europe, which had seen it overweight European sovereign assets and taking on other Continental risk assets, in light of the changing political landscape.“Given the very difficult outlook, given the rising risk of populism, we should have a more cautious stance,” he said while discussing the $1.5trn (€1.3trn) manager’s house view following its most recent secular forum.His comments come after the Austrian presidential runoff elections, which saw an independent candidate affiliated with the local Green Party narrowly defeat the candidate of the right-wing FPÖ, as well as growing support for both right and left-wing populist parties in France and Spain.last_img read more

Induced Abortion: Women have a Right to Know

first_imgMedia Release American College of Pediatricians 12 May 2015With its position statement, Induced Abortion: Risks That May Impact Adolescents, Young Adults, and Their Children, the American College of Pediatricians (The College) urges women who are contemplating an abortion to become aware of the many risks associated with the procedure. The statement presents the results of a comprehensive review of the scientific literature on induced abortion. In addition to the harsh reality that abortion intentionally ends the life of an unborn child, extensive medical and sociological data demonstrate it also poses significant health risks for the pregnant woman and her future children.For example, women who undergo induced abortions have higher mortality rates for several years thereafter, higher suicide rates, more substance abuse and some association of greater mental illness. A preponderance of evidence indicates an increased risk of breast cancer, especially for adolescents. Risks from induced abortion are not only limited to the woman, but also extend to her future children. Prior abortion markedly increases the risk of future very premature births, which may result in death or disability of the baby.College Board member, Patty June, MD, states, “Pregnant teens need to know the whole truth about abortion, not only concerning the living unborn child within them, but also the personal health risks associated with aborting that life.”The College also offers this statement as a resource to physicians, the lay public, educators and policymakers who may be involved in the care and education of adolescents and young women, and in the position to warn them that abortion carries significant risks that should not be ignored. read more

We had two good years in a street stock before the right deal came along and I bought one. We decided to go all out this year and try to win Deery Series rookie of the year and we got it done.”  The Deery Brothers Summer Series rookie of the year award proved that decision to be correct.  Crew chief Phillip Randall has been with Coyne for 15 race seasons.

Keller hired as women’s volleyball head coach

first_imgThe move comes after former USC head coach Brent Crouch unexpectedly resigned from his position on Jan. 14 to take over the same role at Auburn University. Now, Keller is back with USC, where he hopes to revitalize a program that went 40-25 in Crouch’s two seasons and got booted from the NCAA Tournament in the second round both years. Keller was also an assistant coach for the Trojan men’s team from 2007-10.  Included in his experienced resume, Keller was on the coaching staff of the U.S. Youth National Team from 2014-17 and took home second place at the NORCECA U19 Continental Championship in 2018. Keller served as an associate head coach of UCLA’s women’s volleyball team in 2019, and had spent the previous six seasons working as an assistant coach of the Bruins’ men’s team. Keller helped lead the Bruins to a 19-12 record in 2019, advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The men’s program saw 10 All-Americans over the course of Keller’s tenure as assistant coach, and the Bruins earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament semifinal in 2016 as well as a 2018 runner-up finish.  “We are very excited to welcome Brad back to the Trojan Family,” Bohn said in the press release. “His mastery of the Southern California recruiting landscape will be a difference-maker for our program. He brings a strong coaching pedigree and has coached the game at a national-caliber level.”center_img Brad Keller has been named head coach of the USC women’s volleyball team, athletic director Mike Bohn announced Thursday. Keller’s staff consistently reeled in elite recruiting classes while with the UCLA men’s program, helping land the No. 1 ranked class in 2013, 2014, 2017 and 2018, according to Volleyball Magazine’s rankings. “He is a great fit for USC, and he embraces our aspirations to reclaim USC’s rich volleyball heritage,” Bohn said. “He has a deep passion for the game of volleyball and believes in our student-athlete centric model.” “This is a dream for me,” Keller said in a press release Thursday. “I started at USC, so it’s so nice to be back here. This is a very exciting time and I can’t wait to start working with this team to build on USC’s incredible women’s volleyball tradition.” Keller has seen success with the Trojans as well.
