COVID-19: Regional leaders mull withdrawing from race if elections not postponed

first_img“I am not sure the pandemic will end before December. If the regional election is going to be held on Dec. 9, I better withdraw my candidacy.”Purnomo verbally conveyed his intention to the PDI-P Surakarta chapter’s executive board chairman and the city mayor, FX Hadi “Rudy” Rudyatmo, who expressed full support of the move.Read also: Three parties ready to nominate Gibran if PDI-P picks another candidate in Surakarta”We’ll soon send a letter to the Central Java PDI-P [chairman] regarding this matter,” Rudy said. At least two candidates who are expected to run in the upcoming simultaneous regional elections in Central Java have expressed thoughts about stepping back from the race if the voting day remains set at Dec. 9, arguing that the COVID-19 pandemic may not be over by then.Surakarta mayoral candidate Achmad Purnomo and incumbent Wonogiri Regent Joko “Jekek” Sutopo, both of whom are politicians of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), separately announced that they would soon submit letters of withdrawal for their candidacy to the party’s Central Java chairman if there was no change to the election date.”I choose to focus on handling COVID-19 rather than conducting a political campaign during the pandemic,” said Purnomo, who is currently the deputy mayor of Surakarta city. Jekek said the government should maintain its focus on addressing the pandemic in the meantime. “There’re still a lot to do regarding the outbreak. We can postpone the election, but not the COVID-19 response.”The government and the House of Representatives previously agreed to reschedule the voting day for this year’s simultaneous regional elections to Dec. 9 from September due to the health crisis.The decision was made after a hearing conducted on April 14 involving the House Commission II overseeing home affairs, Home Minister Tito Karnavian, the General Elections Commission (KPU), the Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu) and the Election Organization Ethics Council (DKPP).The government said it would soon draft a regulation in lieu of law (Perppu) on the postponement of the voting day, which is scheduled to be held simultaneously in the country’s 270 regions.The KPU previously suggested three alternative dates for the voting day, namely Dec. 9, 2020, March 17, 2021, and Sept. 29, 2021.Topics :last_img read more

Liverpool move closer to title with 4-0 win over Palace

first_imgLiverpool were back at their lethal best to beat Crystal Palace 4-0 at Anfield on Wednesday, moving within two points of securing the Premier League title.The victory, with goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane, ensured Juergen Klopp’s side could be crowned champions on Thursday if second-placed Manchester City fail to win at Chelsea.Should Pep Guardiola’s side win at Stamford Bridge, Liverpool could finish the job with a victory in their next game, against defending champions City, on July 2. Salah doubled the advantage, a minute before the interval, chesting down a cross-field pass from Fabinho before skipping goalwards and slotting home.Brazilian Fabinho made it 3-0 with a thundering drive from 25 meters out before Mane added the fourth, finishing off a classic break from Liverpool’s front three.Mane started the move, slipping the ball inside to Roberto Firmino who found Salah on the right, the Egyptian delivering a perfect pass to the on-running Mane who confidently drove home.Liverpool have 86 points from 31 games with City 23 points behind ahead of their trip to Chelsea. “We’ve worked hard for this over the past few years and as a squad this is what we’ve dreamed of. We’re in a good position so hopefully we’ll be able to get across the line pretty soon,” said right back Alexander-Arnold, whose superb free kick broke the deadlock.It was such a dominant performance from Klopp’s side, who had been held to a 0-0 draw by Everton on Sunday, that Palace did not have a single touch in Liverpool’s penalty area — the first time that has occurred in the Premier League since Opta began collating such stats in 2008.After the Liverpool anthem ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ was played in front of the empty stadium, Roy Hodgson’s Palace suffered an early blow when Wilfried Zaha limped off injured in the 15th minute.Alexander-Arnold fired Liverpool ahead in the 23rd minute with a perfectly-executed curling free kick into the top corner.center_img Topics :last_img read more

La Administración Wolf desarrolla el estándar de reapertura en base a datos

first_img April 25, 2020 Español,  Press Release,  Public Health En consulta con profesionales de la salud pública y en un esfuerzo por simplificar y reflejar mejor el crecimiento, la disminución o la estabilidad, la Administración Wolf desarrolló las métricas del Departamento de Salud e incluyó un ejemplo para contribuir con el cálculo.Se estableció que el objetivo de la meta para la reapertura es menos de 50 nuevos casos confirmados al departamento por cada 100,000 habitantes en los últimos 14 días. Por ejemplo, un área con una población de 800,000 personas debería tener menos de 400 casos nuevos confirmados e informados en los últimos 14 días para cumplir con el objetivo. Una evaluación determinará si el objetivo de la meta se ha cumplido. La administración trabajará estrechamente con los gobiernos locales y de los condados para posibilitar la reapertura de las comunidades y la transición del regreso al trabajo.El objetivo de la meta de los casos informados no es la única métrica que se debe cumplir antes de la reapertura de una región. Además, la comunidad debe garantizar que haya:Pruebas suficientes a disposición de las personas con síntomas y poblaciones objetivo, como aquellos en alto riesgo, personal de atención médica y socorristas de primera línea.Sólida investigación de casos e infraestructura de seguimiento de contactos para facilitar la identificación temprana de brotes y emitir órdenes de aislamiento y cuarentena adecuadas.Identificación de los ámbitos de alto riesgo de un área, incluidas las instituciones correccionales, los hogares de cuidado personal, los establecimientos de enfermería especializada y otros ámbitos de servicios de atención conjunta, y garantizar que las instituciones cuenten con las protecciones adecuadas, como la capacitación del personal, pruebas de detección en empleados, procedimientos y pruebas de detección para visitantes y suministros adecuados de equipos de protección personal para apoyar el funcionamiento continuo.El Estado también se basará en un tablero de comando que está siendo desarrollado y evaluado por Carnegie Mellon University para adoptar un enfoque basado en las regiones y los sectores para las reaperturas, la reducción de las restricciones y la respuesta de la salud pública.Una crisis de salud pública necesita que la administración tome la mejor decisión con la información que tengamos en ese preciso momento, y continuar perfeccionando nuestro enfoque. Si los indicadores y criterios apuntan a un pico en los casos, el Estado, en coordinación con los funcionarios locales, deberá ajustar las órdenes y restricciones con el fin de garantizar que la propagación de la enfermedad se mantenga al mínimo.El plan completo está disponible aquí: esta página en inglés.

The Offshore Wind Industry’s Urgent Need for Professionals

first_imgThe offshore wind industry is developing rapidly. Last year, the use of wind energy grew with 19% in the EU. It is expected that by 2030, wind energy will be the most important source of energy. Not only the market is growing; when it comes to technical developments, changes are also rapidly taking place. The industry does have a big challenge: there is a considerable shortage of professionals.Wind energy keeps playing a larger role in Europe. The International Energy Agency (IEA) expects that in 2030, 30% of the energy in Europe comes from wind. This makes it the most important source of energy. The EU wants to adhere to the Paris Agreement on climate change and is striving for a sustainable way of generating energy.In order to reach this goal, further transformations of the current energy system and cutting-edge technological developments are necessary. Also, investments need to be made in new and current wind parks. Part of the present-day wind parks will not be operational by 2030.Shortage of manpowerThis kind of development and growth requires more manpower. With the current shortage in personnel, alarm bells are already ringing. It is expected that the number of jobs in the sector will  double within the next 3 years. In Holland, 25,000 extra employees are necessary by 2030. At a European level, wind energy will provide for approximately 596,000 jobs. Not having enough manpower has a negative impact on the developments in the industry and may mean that the advancements that are out there to make the energy transition possible, will not be completely utilized.Commitment to the industry“The industry is eager to find professionals of every level” says Anne Visser, Business Unit Manager at Navingo. Navingo specializes in connecting employers and jobseekers in this sector. “We notice that the need is growing to find personnel for jobs such as service and repair engineers, hydraulic engineers, superintendents and cable engineers.” A challenge, because the energy sector is not the only sector looking for technical professionals. “There is a lot of competition from other sectors. If we want to continue the energy transition and make sure that the energy source objectives for offshore wind can be realised, we need to make sure these professionals are committed to this industry. Only then can we reach these goals together”.Are you also looking for personnel? Visit and read about the possibilities.last_img read more

Two Guyanese grab silver and bronze at World Masters Games in NZ

first_imgGUYANESE cyclist Aubrey Gordon, a three-time Olympian, won silver and Cyril Hunte, another former national cyclist, got bronze at the World Masters Games on Saturday in Auckland, New Zealand.The road cycling criterium race, with 44 starters in the 60-64 male category, was won by American Joseph Cullinan and the trio clocked in at 36 minutes, 51 seconds.However, former national cycling coach and two-time Olympian, Victor Rutherford, who is based in Florida, was disappointed that one of them did not win gold.“They have planned and worked hard for over six months with the Masters in mind. Anyhow,with the road races scheduled for next Sunday, hopefully we will have the elusive gold,” Rutherford said on Saturday.Cyril Hunte, who is based in California, is the brother of former national champion,Neville Hunte. Cycling fans would recall that Cyril Hunte was once a fierce competitor here alongside national stars of yesteryear like Aubrey Gordon, Randolph ‘Randy’ Toussaint, Errol McClean and Joelyn Joseph.Last year after the US National Championships, Gordon and Hunte set their eyes on the World Masters Games and plans were put in place .Rutherfod said that Hunte had a really good build up, placing and winning in many events prior to leaving for New Zealand. However, Gordon, now considered to be the ‘Shivnarine Chanderpaul’ of cycling, was hampered somewhat by job commitment and weather.Gordon was a gold medalist at the 2009 UCI World Masters Criterium Road Race in Sydney, Australia in the men’s 50-54 years age category. He represented Guyana at the 1980, 1984 and 1988 Olympics.last_img read more
