Bogor regent to report Rhoma Irama over alleged PSBB violation after local performance

first_imgBogor Police chief Sr. Com. Adj. Roland Ronaldy said he would investigate the matter immediately.Ade claimed Rhoma’s performance at a local khitanan (circumcision celebration) was no different from a concert.”Singing on a stage with several other artists would obviously attract crowds. He sang more than one song with other [famous] singers, like Rita Sugiarto; it was like a concert,” she said.She claimed that Rhoma had assured the Bogor administrations he would cancel his performance, then expressed her disappointment that he and the event’s organizer had broken their promise. Bogor Regent Ade Yasin has threatened to file charges against Indonesian dangdut superstar Rhoma Irama for allegedly performing at an event in Cibunan Village, Bogor, West Java, on Sunday, despite large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) imposed in the regency.”The [Bogor COVID-19] task force will follow up on [the incident] by questioning [the people involved]. If they did violate PSBB measures, they would be legally processed based on current regulations,” Ade said as reported by on Monday.She pointed out that both Rhoma and the event’s organizer had violated Gubernatorial Regulation No. 35/2020 on the PSBB. “We are angry and disappointed. Why did they break their own promise? We did not deploy officials to the event because we believed them.”However, upon hearing news of the performance, officials from the Bogor COVID-19 task force went to the ceremony and stopped its live performance at 11 p.m.Meanwhile, Rhoma claimed he was at the khitanan as a guest and not as a performer, but he was asked to sing a few songs by the event organizer.”I came as a guest, but then the host and other guests at the event asked me to perform, to ‘donate’ some songs,” Rhoma said as reported by”The hosts asked me to give a tausiah [sermon] as well, so I gave a short one. Then, everybody asked me to sing, so I sang — that’s it.” (nal)Topics :last_img read more

Alcatel-Lucent scheme granted leeway on liability transfer

first_imgThe €668m Dutch pension fund of IT firm Alcatel-Lucent has been granted extra time by supervisor De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) to transfer its pension liabilities to another provider, after the employer cancelled the contract for pensions provision with its own scheme.Following a request by the pension fund, DNB decided that accrued benefits must be moved within six months of a settlement with the employer concerning an additional financial contribution to which the scheme claims to be entitled.Alternatively, the fund must also complete the transfer within six months of a court verdict, in case a settlement cannot be agreed, the fund said in a statement.The dispute between the scheme and the company arose after because the parties were unable to conclude a new contract for pensions provision. The employer terminated the contract in 2011, as it wanted to implement an alternative model. As Alcatel-Lucent cancelled the contract before the fund’s recovery plan was completed, it must now choose whether to join another scheme or complete a buyout with an insurer.Meanwhile, the fund has also started looking into the possibility of employing an APF – the successor to the less successful API – which allows for the pooled management of pension assets, as an alternative pensions vehicle. Last month, a court in The Hague heard the appeal between the pension fund and the employer about the damage the scheme claimed to have suffered from the company’s decision. At the end of 2012, the pension fund of Alcatel-Lucent had 43 active participants, 1,330 pensioners and 2,915 deferred members. It reported an annual return of 10,4%.When asked by IPE, Jasper Koenhein, the scheme’s chairman, said he was unable to provide additional details immediately.last_img read more

Derivatives clearing: Smoke but no fire

first_imgNotification of any extension to the occupational pension exemption was due for decision by the European Commission in mid-August.“So please may we know the outcome?” was the question back then. And repeated at the end of the month. One’ll have to wait “a few more weeks”. Ah, well…! October to November? Still nothing! Early December? At last! Something! Expect to hear before Christmas! Thank you European Commission, thank you, indeed! But is this promise credible?Behind the various Brussels scenes, including in the Council, where the EU national governments meet, there emerges a plethora of indications of lips being stitched shut. This could signal confusion, disagreement, tension, Faustian bargaining?Request for wisdom from the PR man for one EU national representation, itself likely to be heavily involved, was answered by: “Derivatives? Sorry, I’m really not much into that myself.”Better try the Americans, who, under Dodd-Frank, already have rules that pension fund derivative trades do have to be cleared, and should be motivated to see trans-Atlantic fair play.The recorded message, from the so-described “key man” cheerily stated that a general strike in Belgium was keeping him away from the office today. (In fact, the strike was the previous day).Tracked down eventually, he passed the inquiry on to a colleague, who passed it again, and so on, to, finally, the official press office of the “US Mission to the EU”.Some light on the subject? Actually, not much! “We can’t really comment on this. Best regards …”Similarly, from a particular pension fund interest (described by a bystander as dealing with the matter for itself and others), came the words “at the moment, we choose to wait and see what happens”.Only InsuranceEurope, for insurance-based pensions, would fully articulate its stance. Its members do have to trade using central counterparty clearing houses (CCPs), it stated. The institution argues against the need. But no, it added, it was not itself involved in lobbying.However, one press spokesman, discussing commission president Jean-Claude Junker’s general position, conceded “I do understand the matter of principle involved”.The moral issue is that, if the EU does not buck up its economy fast, the political consequences don’t bear thinking about. In other words, Junker is targeting a kind of hell, today.  On the other hand, the PR granted that even the common citizen was aware that financial markets lacking oversight can nose dive dramatically.Moreover, the fluttering paper on which the derivative contracts are written represent some years of global GDP. Potentially terrifying prospects? Hell tomorrow?So, emphatically, the PR promised to find out the official position of his own government’s financial department.Splendid!Splendid, that is, if that position ever arrives! In Brussels, there are two types of hell, Jeremy Woolfe explainsThere are two sorts of hell. Hell today, and hell tomorrow. That is, if the EU financial big-wigs in Brussels manage to put off today’s economic agony, they can be sure of risking more of the same tomorrow. Or worse.The anguish centres on whether workplace-based pension fund managers will be able to escape having to clear their trades in derivatives via clearing houses and for how long in the future.The issue comes in the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), which aims to reduce hazards associated with the derivatives market.last_img read more

Gardasil: Guarding or Gutting Our Youth?

first_imgThe Healthy Home Economist 15 August 2013When I was in medical school, I had my first abnormal Pap, and it was quite abnormal, a precancerous lesion described as CIN2 (now revealed to be one of the most inaccurately diagnosed pathologies). I had two very unpleasant “therapeutic biopsies” called colposcopies, and two years later, it was normal.Back to cervical cancer. Once again, we have a one-size fits all recommendation for healthy women to prevent an extremely rare outcome – death from cervical cancer. Let’s take a look at how to evaluate the considerations for you or someone you know:1. Not Indicated:  I’m afraid that the propaganda around “One less” has been in service of fearmongering around a not-so-scary problem. In the developing world, and with the use of routine Pap smears, the incidence of cervical cancer deaths are 1.4-1.7/100,000. There are 15 (known) of 100 different strains of human papilloma virus, and the vaccines reportedly protect against 2 of these. The natural course of infection with any of these strains has been demonstrated to involve resolution of 70% of infections within one year and 90% within 2-3 years. Of the remaining, unresolved infections, only 5% of those typically progress to cancer. Thus, we have an effective, extremely low risk to no risk intervention that is already doing the job of detecting these misbehaving cells (the Pap), and if there is not spontaneous resolution, we have effective surgical interventions such as the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP).2. Not Effective:  So, if we are suggesting that this vaccine is unnecessary, is it effective at what it claims to do, which is prevent deaths? This question remains unanswered, despite fast-track approval by the FDA in 2006, because cervical cancer takes about 20-40 years to manifest. The trials that have been done – sponsored by the pharmaceutical company producing the product – have used HPV infection associated cellular changes called CIN1-3 as a surrogate for cancer.Thus, the premise for asserting efficacy rests on speculation that abnormal lesions will progress to cancer, which we have already discussed, they do not, most of the time. read more

Mackay gets Cardiff backing

first_img Press Association Cardiff manager Malky Mackay will have the final say over transfer dealings at the Barclays Premier League club, they have announced in the wake of Monday’s lengthy board meeting. Cardiff on Tuesday released the results of the meeting, which had been played out amid a backdrop of some unrest after Mackay’s head of recruitment Iain Moody was removed from his post last week. Moody was replaced by 23-year-old Kazakhstani Alisher Apsalyamov, who is thought to be a friend of Cardiff owner Vincent Tan’s son and has no known experience of top-class football. “In order for the club to grow and sustain its ability to be a competitive force in the Premier League, the board has made a number of decisions which will strengthen the club, support the executive team, manager and his staff and enhance shareholder return. “Needless to say, the Board discussed the events of the last two weeks in detail. “The board believes that these changes establish a solid foundation for the club to grow.” Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust had earlier demanded greater transparency from the club. Chairman Tim Hartley said: “Bluebirds fans deserve a full explanation following the board meeting, including the reasoning behind the decision to appoint Alisher Apsalyamov as acting head of recruitment. “The events of the last week at Cardiff demonstrate the need for a new approach to the ownership and governance of professional football clubs. “Cardiff could make a start by acting in a more transparent way and by engaging and communicating with fans.” However, there was no explanation of why Moody has gone and a Trust statement read: “We are disappointed that the statement contains no reference to fans, no consideration of putting an elected supporter representative on the board and also the issues which caused the upheaval at the club have not been addressed in the statement. “We believe that far greater dialogue between the club owner and senior management and the supporters of the Bluebirds is vitally necessary in the future. “We note that interest paid of £5.8million has been written off by Mr Tan which is good news for the club’s future and makes reference to interest-free loans. “But we are puzzled that the statement contains no reference to Mr Tan converting the debt, which has been built up, into shares. Further clarification is needed from the club’s owner on this matter. “We once again reiterate our full support for Malky Mackay and hope he leads the Bluebirds to even greater success in the Premier League.” Mackay will, however, have the final say over Cardiff’s transfers after it was unanimously agreed to back him with a restructure of the club’s board with four new committees. Most significantly a ‘Nomination and Corporate Governance’ committee will be headed by chairman Mehmet Dalman. According to a Cardiff statement, the main responsibility of the committee will be “to support the manager, Malky Mackay, on all player purchases and sales. “All transfer dealings will be conducted subject to the manager’s final approval.” That will come as welcome news to Mackay after it was understood he was unhappy at Moody’s removal, albeit without any threat of resigning his post. Cardiff confirmed the board had “discussed the events of the last two weeks in detail” during Monday’s meeting before making their recommendations. It was also revealed that Tan had agreed to write off interest of approximately £5.8 million on previous loans made to the club while all future loans up to an aggregate value of £50 million would be interest free. “All aspects and matters relating to the present and the future of the club were fully discussed,” a statement read. last_img read more

Magath had to alter squad mentality

first_img With three of their five remaining league games coming against teams in the bottom half of the table, Fulham’s run-in certainly looks more favourable than Norwich’s, whose new boss Neil Adams faces the daunting prospect of a final four games against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal. But Magath insists he had to change the mentality of the squad he inherited two months ago and wants to build on 2-1 win at Villa Park. “At the time all the people were telling me, ‘we have 12 games left and we have a good schedule’,” he said. “They saw the possibility but they didn’t realise that first you have to make points to have a chance [of staying up] at the end. “Now everybody knows we have to win at the weekend. It was an important win last week at Aston Villa but if we don’t win on Saturday it was for nothing. It is very difficult for Norwich. It doesn’t matter, the result on Saturday, because for the rest of the season they have tough games.” The former Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg coach entered English football with a reputation as a strict disciplinarian – which seemed to suit Fulham’s requirements given their situation. But Magath feels he has shown his softer side, insisting the whole club need to work together to give Fulham the best chance of surviving. “I told you I was a nice man,” he said. “I know I have had to convince you but I know I’m a nice boy. But it’s not just a question of the manager. The whole club has to be in the right mood. They whole club has to realise you have to fight together against relegation. It’s not possible for one man, it doesn’t matter who it is. “It works only if you all fit together and go only in the one direction. If you have to many people inside your club, you can do what you want but it will never work. You have no chance to give the players the right atmosphere.” Press Association Felix Magath believes he had to get his Fulham players to face up to the prospect of relegation to give the club a chance of avoiding the drop. center_img The 60-year-old German replaced Rene Meulensteen at Craven Cottage on February 14 and still has a battle on his hands to maintain Fulham’s Barclays Premier League status. A win at Aston Villa last weekend means the Whites remain in the hunt and they welcome fellow strugglers Norwich to west London on Saturday knowing a win would take them within two points of escaping the relegation zone. last_img read more
