PREMIUMJakarta tests plastic-free lifestyle

first_imgFacebook Despite the convenience that a single-use plastic bag offers, starting small by refraining from using one might help improve the persistent plastic waste woes plaguing Jakarta, activists and the Jakarta administration have said in a campaign to promote a greener lifestyle.The Indonesian Plastic Bag Diet Movement (GIDKP), a national movement advocating for the reduction of plastic bag use since 2013, in cooperation with the South Jakarta administration, the Jakarta Environment Agency and city-owned market operator PD Pasar Jaya, has recently launched a trial program aimed at phasing out the use of plastic bags.The campaign follows the 2019 Jakarta gubernatorial regulation issued in December on the mandatory use of eco-friendly shopping bags in which the city will impose a ban on single-use plastics at shopping malls, supermarkets and traditional markets in July.”Consumers… LOG INDon’t have an account?

Bermuda on storm warning as strengthening Gert approaches

first_imgTropical Storm Gert approaching Bermuda on Sunday. NHC/NOAA visible imageMIAMI, USA — Bermuda was under a tropical storm warning on Sunday as Tropical Storm Gert moved towards the island, strengthening slowly.According to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, at 5:00 pm EDT, the center of Gert was located about 255 miles south-southeast of Bermuda moving toward the north-northwest near 8 mph. A gradual turn toward the north was expected later Sunday night or Monday morningOn the forecast track, the centre of Gert is expected to pass near or just east of Bermuda by Monday afternoon. Reports from an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft indicate that the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 45 mph, with higher gusts.Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles, mainly to the east of the centre. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).Tropical storm conditions are expected on Bermuda late Sunday night or early Monday. Gert is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches on Bermuda. Large swells generated by Gert will begin to affect Bermuda later Sunday night and on Monday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.A tropical storm warning is in effect for Bermuda, which means that tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning area within the next 24 hours.Meanwhile, a trough of low pressure located about 425 miles north-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands continues to produce limited shower and thunderstorm activity.Satellite data and ship observations suggest that the system still may not have a closed surface circulation and environmental conditions are expected to remain only marginally conducive for development over the next couple of days due to proximity to Tropical Storm Gert.This system has a medium chance — 30 percent — of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves toward the west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph.Elsewhere, tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 48 hours.Caribbean News Now Share Tweet Share NewsRegional Bermuda on storm warning as strengthening Gert approaches by: – August 15, 2011center_img Sharing is caring! 7 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more

Kick It Out seeks sterner sanctions

first_img Bailey said: “We do not consider there is a real prospect of successfully appealing to extend the sanction imposed. “The grounds of appeal available to us are limited to legal challenges or to circumstances in which the sanction imposed is ‘so unduly lenient as to be unreasonable’. That is a high test.” Bailey confirmed the FA had pressed the commission to impose a harsher sanction than five matches. Anelka will be suspended for the trips to Swansea, Hull and Norwich as well as the home games against Cardiff and Tottenham. It has been confirmed that neither Anelka nor the FA will appeal against the five-match ban imposed by an independent regulatory commission for the player making an gesture associated with anti-Semitism. Football’s anti-racism organisation Kick It Out claimed it was “beyond feasibility” that Anelka did not know the ‘quenelle’ salute had anti-Semitic connotations and said people would be perplexed the FA is not appealing against the leniency of the sentence. It also called on the FA to bring its minimum punishment into line with UEFA’s 10-game ban even though the governing body only brought in its five-match rule last year. Anelka had told the commission he made the gesture as a goal celebration against West Ham on December 28 in support of the French comedian Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, who has been convicted seven times of anti-Semitic crimes, but that he was unaware of any anti-Semitic associations. A statement from the group read: “Kick It Out finds it difficult to reconcile the sanctions imposed and conclusions reached by the commission. “There are many ambiguities that are not easily reconcilable with the final outcome. For instance, Anelka has attended one of Dieudonne’s live performances and admits to being a friend of his, and to claim that he does not understand the anti-Semitic connotations of the quenelle is beyond feasibility. “Kick It Out urges the FA to review its anti-discrimination regulations and increase its minimum ban for players found guilty of discriminatory acts to 10 matches, in line with UEFA, so as to provide a much more meaningful deterrent to deal with potential offences.” West Brom have also come in for criticism from Kick It Out. The statement added: “His employer West Bromwich Albion should have exercised its leadership as a community institution to apologise for the offence caused and deal with the matter in accordance with its disciplinary procedures.” The FA’s director of governance Darren Bailey explained why no appeal would be launched. The Football Association has been urged to double its minimum ban for racist offences from five matches to 10 following the Nicolas Anelka ruling. Press Associationlast_img read more

Solomons targets top-six finish

first_img Tom Heathcote is at stand-off and while Sam Hidalgo-Clyne continues at scrum-half. The pack is unchanged since Sunday’s European outing, with Alasdair Dickinson at loosehead, WP Nel at tighthead and Ross Ford at hooker. Ford will also captain the side again as Mike Coman continues with his return-to-play protocols following a head knock against Scarlets two weeks ago. Meanwhile, Anton Bresler and Ben Toolis form the partnership at lock with Roddy Grant, Hamish Watson and David Denton in the back row at blindside, openside and number eight respectively. With four games to go before the Guinness PRO12 play-offs, the Irish Province are flying high in third place and have only the league contest to focus on after being knocked out of the European Champions Cup. Edinburgh, though, are fighting on two fronts. Press Association Edinburgh coach Alan Solomons has warned his players they are in for a war of attrition when they take on Munster at Murrayfield. They have a European Challenge Cup semi-final with Newport Gwent Dragons to look forward to next week but before that hope to take another step towards qualifying for next year’s Champions Cup by claiming a PRO12 top-six finish. Edinburgh are currently seventh, equal on points with Connacht and three points ahead of Scarlets. A sixth-place finish would see the Gunners through while seventh spot requires a play-off match to determine if they take part in the continent’s top competition. But with Munster free to concentrate on their league form, Solomons knows his side will be up against it. He said: “Munster come to BT Murrayfield at full strength, well rested, on the back of a great Six Nations for Ireland and being out of Europe, they only have the PRO12 play-offs on their mind. “So we are all fully aware of what Saturday brings. “The players are looking forward to what will be a big match and know that only their best will do.” Solomons keeps faith with the starting XV that beat London Irish to set up their semi-final meeting against Dragons. Retaining his place at fullback is Greig Tonks while Dougie Fife – a late withdrawal from the starters last week due to a nose injury – comes back on the right wing with Tim Visser on the left. Phil Burleigh and Andries Strauss maintain their centre pairing. last_img read more

See how Ghana missed 3 penalties against South Africa to miss out on Tokyo Olympics [VIDEO]

first_imgThe Black Meteors missed out on a place at next year’s Tokyo Olympics after losing 6-5 on penalties to South Africa on Friday.The third-place playoff match finished 2-2 after 90 minutes with the game heading straight to a shootout.The Meteors had already lost on penalties at the tournament, only days earlier in their semi-final match against Ivory Coast.This time, things seemed on the up after South Africa missed their first penalty.The Stars were perfect until Kingsley Fobi missed his spot-kick with the South Africans scoring their remaining kicks to take it into sudden death.After goalkeeper Baah made a save, handing Edward Sarpong a chance to win it for the Black Meteors.However, his effort probably hit an actual meteor, as he fired it well over the bar. Emmanuel Cudjoe also missed his effort, handing the South Africans the final Olympics spot.The Meteors will now miss their fourth straight Olympics tournament, having failed to qualify for Beijing in 2008, London in 2012 and Rio in 2016.Watch the highlights of the match below: Once Egypt had beaten South Africa rather convincingly, one Olympics spot remained and the South Africans were all that stood between Ghana and a place in Tokyo.Surely the Black Meteors could beat a side that had been humbled by the hosts and had only scored one goal all tournament.The players and manager were saying the right things and yet again hopes were high.Those hopes were dented when South Africa took the lead through a fortuitous own goal.Evans Mensah equalised, and after the South Africans found another goal, Samuel Obeng levelled again.With the game ending 2-2 yet again, the Meteors had to face a penalty shootout yet again.Having been full of hope and expectations prior to the tournament, the players and technical team will return to Ghana this weekend empty-handed, dreading these two missed (pun intended) opportunities.last_img read more

That was terrible. It was a bad list, bad choice, they didn’t give players a chance to voice their opinion. They just gave us a list to pick from. So that was bad, that’s terrible.”— Rich Hofmann (@rich_hofmann) July 6, 2020Didn’t have enough space to fit in one tweet, but this was part of his response to a question of how players can use the platform in Orlando to promote causes that fight racial injustice/police reform.Scott said he didn’t know, but he clearly wasn’t impressed with the jerseys.— Rich Hofmann (@rich_hofmann) July 6, 2020MORE: Key dates, schedule & more to know about NBA seasonAfter hearing what Scott said Monday, Celtics forward Jaylen Brown said he agreed with the assessment, telling reporters that he was “very disappointed” with the list.

Spears.  The NBA and National Basketball Players Association reportedly agreed to a list of social justice messages that can be displayed on the backs of jerseys for the league’s restart in Orlando, Fla., but that doesn’t mean all players are happy with the options.Sixers forward Mike Scott ripped the list of messages that can be featured above players’ numbers, calling it “bad” and “terrible.”last_img read more
