El Volkswagen ID.3, más cerca: arranca la producción en serie del coche eléctrico de los 30.000 euros

Tras acometer una primera fase de preparación, fabricación de componentes y pruebas de impacto incluidas, el Volkswagen ID.3, el coche eléctrico "para millones y no para millonarios", tal y como lo definió la propia marca alemana, ya ha arrancado su fase de producción en serie y culmina así el último paso antes de que podamos verlo en las carreteras. Se lanzará de forma casi simultánea en mercados en toda Europa en verano de 2020, según la marca.

En concreto, la primera unidad en salir de la planta de montaje de Zwickau (Baja Sajonia, Alemania), que acogerá además a otros cinco modelos cero emisiones de la marca, fue un ID.3 blanco en un evento de inauguración al que acudieron la canciller Angela Merkel y, como no podía ser de otra forma, Herbert Diess, CEO del Grupo Volkswagen.

Volkswagen Empieza La Produccion Del Id 3 En Zwickau 1

Y es que se trata de un punto de inflexión determinante para el fabricante de Wolfsburgo principalmente por dos motivos. Uno es que el ID.3 es el primer integrante de la nueva familia de vehículos libre de emisiones de Volkswagen y, por ende, el encargado de estrenar la nueva Plataforma Modular de Propulsión Eléctrica (MEB) creada por el grupo para los automóviles con este tipo de tecnología, la cual también usará Ford.

Como buen retoño primerizo, Volkswagen ha tratado también de nutrir del mayor número de novedades posibles al ID.3 a fin de convertirlo en su gran escaparate de lo que está por venir, mecánica aparte, por lo que de igual forma estrenará un nuevo airbag lateral en el centro del habitáculo además de lucir el nuevo logo de la firma como estaba previsto.

Saldrán al día 150 coches eléctricos de Zwickau

Id3 Produccion 3

El otro gran motivo es que con la salida de fábrica de la primera unidad del compacto eléctrico, se pone en el foco mediático a la planta de Zwickau, que jugará un papel determinante en el viraje hacia la electrificación del Grupo: por primera vez, una gran planta de producción de automóviles se ha convertido íntegramente para la movilidad eléctrica, con inversiones que alcanzan los 1.200 millones de euros, según cifras del fabricante.

La instalación está actualmente en proceso de reestructuración y, una vez se alcance la fase de ampliación final a partir de 2021, producirá seis modelos MEB de tres marcas del Grupo gracias a los 8.000 empleados que allí trabajan en consonancia con más de 1.600 robots que desarrollan labores de ensamblaje.

Está previsto que esta fábrica de salida a cerca de 100.000 coches eléctricos el próximo año y, a partir de 2021, hasta 330.000 ejemplares saldrán de la línea de montaje cada año (150 al día), convirtiéndose en pionera de la transformación de la red de producción global de Volkswagen. Una cifras en consonancia con la magnitud de los planes del Grupo Volkswagen, que tiene previsto vender cerca de 22 millones de coches eléctricos en todo el mundo hasta 2028.

"El ID.3 realizará una importante contribución a la penetración de la movilidad eléctrica. Hace que la movilidad individual limpia sea accesible para millones de personas y supone un hito para nuestra compañía en el proceso de alcanzar la neutralidad en carbono en 2050”, explicó Herbert Diess durante la ceremonia en Zwickau.

En esta dirección, Volkswagen también fabricará motores eléctricos y celdas y sistemas de baterías en esta planta y en las de componentes en Brunswick, Kassel, Salzgitter y Wolfsburgo, mientras que próximamente se sumará a estas una nueva gran fábrica de celdas de batería en Salzgitter en cooperación junto con Northvolt.

Un coche eléctrico asequible con gran autonomía

Volkswagen Id3 3

Pero para cumplir con todos esos objetivos, Volkswagen tiene claro que la democratización del coche eléctrico pasa, entre otras cosas, por poner en el mercado modelos a un precio competitivo y eso es lo que busca con el ID.3, que ofertará una versión básica por menos de 30.000 euros, 10.000 euros más económica que la variante de lanzamiento, el ID.3 First Edition, con la que el fabricante inició las prerrersevas del coche eléctrico en mayo de este año.

Cabe recordar que el Volkswagen ID.3 estará disponible con tres opciones de batería. En la variante básica es de 45 kWh y promete una autonomía de hasta 330 kilómetros (según ciclo WLTP), pero también se ofertará otra con una batería de 58 kWh, que permite recorrer hasta 420 km entre cargas, y una tercera con una pila de 77 kWh y un rango de 550 kilómetros.

Además, a través de la función de carga rápida, es posible cargar el ID.3 lo suficiente para obtener 290 kilómetros en 30 minutos, utilizando una salida de carga de 100 kW.

Unas cifras nada desdeñables para el precio que promete la firma, lo que explica la gran acogida que ha recibido desde el principio por parte del mercado: antes incluso de su presentación en septiembre ya alcanzó las 30.000 reservas, y actualmente ya supera las 35.000 en todo el mundo, previo pago de un depósito de 1.000 euros reembolsables.

Por otra parte, Volkswagen explica que el coche se entrega a los clientes con una huella de carbono neutral gracias a que, por ejemplo, la producción de las celdas de batería de este modelo se utiliza exclusivamente energía de fuentes renovables. "Las emisiones que se producen durante todo el proceso de producción, que actualmente son inevitables, se compensan mediante inversiones en el proyecto climático 'Katingan Mataya Forest Protection', en la isla indonesia de Borneo, entre otros", culmina la firma.

Ashok Leyland to enter Russia with a local partner

 Cache   

Chennai: Commercial vehicle major Ashok Leyland Ltd will enter the Russian market with a local partner in a year's time, said a top company official.

He also said the company plans to enter the top 10 global commercial vehicle manufacturer's club soon and betting big on its modular platform.

"We have identified a local assembler in Russia to take our franchise. We will enter the Russian market in next 12 months," Dheeraj G. Hinduja, Chairman, told reporters here on Monday.

According to him, in the new markets, the company will have a local partner as there will be tax concessions.

Hinduja said large distributors in newer markets are now showing interests in taking Ashok Leyland franchise.

He said the company is looking at newer overseas markets like Indonesia, Malaysia and others apart from Russia.

As a measure to look at newer overseas markets, Ashok Leyland has decided to come out with a left hand drive vehicle for all its new models.

Currently, the company exports to Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Middle East, Bhutan, East and West African markets.

He said, Ashok Leyland is faring better during this downturn as compared to earlier downturn in 2013-14.

"We have gained market share in the bus and medium and heavy commercial vehicle's segment. Our market share now is 31 per cent. We are also cutting costs," Hinduja said.

According to him, the company had a debt levels of about Rs 6,000 crore during 2013-14 and it has come down to about Rs 1,800 crore.

Hinduja said, earlier the company was in an investment mode putting money in joint ventures with John Deere, Nissan and others which was draining cash.

He said the company had exited the joint ventures with John Deere and Nissan.

Hinduja said the company saw good potential in the light commercial vehicle (LCV) rolled out by the joint venture with Nissan and bought out the Japanese company's stake in the venture.

Globally LCV's account for about 70 per cent of the market and the severity of the industry down cycle is lesser than that of the medium and heavy vehicles.

According to him, the company will be launching the BS-VI vehicles and the vehicles will be built on modular platform.

Queried about the time frame for Ashok Leyland to enter the top 10 global commercial vehicle makers club, Hinduja said the idea is to enter it soon.

"The last vision was to enter the top 10 medium and heavy commercial vehicle segment. That target was fixed in 2010 and was achieved in 2019," Hinduja said.

"I will be disappointed if we don't achieve this less than last time frame," he added.

He said the company rolled out about two lakh units last year and to achieve the global vision the volume required will be about four lakh units.

Hinduja said LCV's share in achieving that target will also be major.

According to Gopal Mahadevan, Wholetime Director and Chief Financial Officer the company will be focussing on customer solutions business that includes finance, fuel, vehicle performance management systems, maintenance parts, re-sale and driver skilling.

He said over the next decade one-third of industry's profits is expected to come from offering various solutions to customers.

The company's Chief Operating Officer Anuj Kathuria said the transition from rolling out vehicles confirming to BS IV emission norms to BS-VI emission norms will be smooth.

Queried about the costs savings by the company by going for modular vehicle platform having common parts Kathuria said it will be known only after stabilisation of BS-VI sales.

On Monday, the company showcased its BS-VI trucks and buses.

Thai English skills dip for third year

 Cache   
Thailand's English proficiency has fallen for the third year in a row, according to the annual English Proficiency Index conducted by the global education company EF Education First. The report showed Thailand dropped to 74th out of 100 countries with a score of 47.62, which is considered "very low" proficiency. In 2018, Thailand ranked 64th out of 88 countries studied in the report with a score of 48.54, while in 2017 it ranked 53rd out of 80 countries with a score of 49.7. Thailand has the third lowest score in Southeast Asia, behind Indonesia and ahead of Myanmar and Cambodia, and ranked 17th out of 25 countries in Asia. By region, central and northern Thailand had slightly higher English proficiency than the Northeast and the South. Bangkok has the highest level of English proficiency in Thailand followed by Nonthaburi province, Chiang Mai, Chonburi and Khon Kaen. Men in Thailand scored slightly above women in the report, rating 48.68 and 47.59, respectively. Singapore ranked fifth in the world, the highest in Asia and behind four wealthy Northern European countries with the Netherlands at the top. The Philippines came in second in Southeast Asia, followed by Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar and Cambodia in last place. The Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand all recorded a downward trend in their scores, while Cambodia and Myanmar saw improvement. The report warns that countries such as Thailand and Cambodia with economies that rely heavily on tourism could suffer from lack of English proficiency. With English as the de facto international language, tourists may choose a competing destination where it is easier to get by with only English. In Asia, women ranked higher than men in English proficiency with a score of 53.30, compared with mens' score of 52.71. Worldwide there was less of a spread, but women still outscored men 53.23 to 53.03. The 26-30 age range scored the best in English proficiency both in Asia and worldwide. The English Proficiency Index is based on an analysis of 2.3 million who took English tests administered by EF education first. The report found English proficiency to be improving worldwide, however, in Asia it has remained stagnant the past five years. https://www.bangkokpost.com/business/1787899/thai-english-skills-dip-for-third-year

gumuk pasir jogja

Topiknugroho.com - Karena waktu masih lama ketika berada di parang tritis, Yogyakarta. Kami sehabis dari pantai cemara sewu melihat banyak wisatawan lokal yang berkunjung ke area gumuk pasir yang berada tidak jauh dari pantai. Tidak banyak memang fenomena yang terjadi dipinggiran pantai yang membentuk gundukkan pasir.

Ketika saya berada di raja ampat, tidak menemukan gundukan pasir halus warna putih semacam yang ada di Parangkusumo Yogyakarta. Inilah yang membuat wisata di jogja sangat istimewa dari lainnya dan ternyata gumuk pasir inilah yang menjadi wisata baru di Jogja. Mengenal lebih jauh tentang gumuk pasir

Apa Itu Gumuk Pasir?

gumuk pasir jogja.JPG

Gumuk pasir merupakan kumpulan pasir yang terbentuk seperti gundukan dalam jumlah yang besar. Dan gundukan pasir atau sekumpulan pasir ini terbuat  dan terbentuk karena angin selatan yang begitu kencang.

Apa Keunikan Gumuk Pasir Parang Kusumo?

Melihat lebih jauh dan mendalam memang tidak ada fenomena yang terjadi di tempat lain selain di daerah istimewa yogyakarta.  Ketika kita masuk ke gerbang wisata gumuk pasir terpampang tulisan barchan. Nah, barchan sendiri adalah nama tipe atau jenis pasir itu sendiri.

Gundukan pasir yang memiliki tinggi mencapai kira-kira 20 meter ini berasal dari erupsi gunung merapi. Gunung merapi yang mengeluarkan material vulkanik teruatam pasir ini dibawa oleh sungai-sungai yang muaranya langsung menuju ke Panati Selatan. Salah satu material vulkanik pasir di bawa oleh dua sungai yaitu sungai Opak dan sungai Progo. Pasir halus tersebut lantas menuju Samudra Hindia di selatan kota Jogja Namun pasir tersebut mengendap di tepi pinggiran pantai, karena endapan pasir halus sangat banyak dan angin selatan sangatlah kencang barulah pasir tersebut terbawa oleh angin dan menimbulkan sebuah gundukan.

Apa Aktivitas yang disukai di Gumuk Pasir Jogja?

Tidak banyak memang aktivitas yang dilakukan di gumuk pasir jogja, salah satu aktivitas yang dilakukan oleh masyarakat jogja maupun wisatawan lokal pada umumnya adalah berfoto layaknya berada di gurun, mereka bermain dan berfoto dan permainan yang paling disukai di Gumuk pasir ini adalah Sandboarding.

Harga Sandboarding Gumuk Pasir

Layaknya sky diatas es, sandboarding ini hanya ada di Yogyakarta meskipun gumuk pasir sendiri ada di vietnam dan Filipina, Sandboarding adalah papan seluncur diatas pasir yang digunakan untuk bermain dari atas ketinggian pasir halus dengan berselancar diatas pasir. Untuk bermain sandboarding seorang dewasa diwajibkan membayar dengan harga Rp.70 ribu

Selain itu, gumuk pasir juga sebagai salah satu lokasi untuk tempat preeweeding bersama calon pasangan, karena memang tempatnya yang mendukung untuk mengabadikan moment seru kepada pasang dan juga tempatnya sangat cocok dijadikan untuk pembuatan sebauh video klip.

Nah, untuk anda yang sedang berlibur ke jogja khususnya. Jangan lupa untuk mampir ke gumuk pasir parangkusumo dan kami akan memberikan tips kepada anda.

Tips Liburan ke Gumuk Pasir Parangkusumo

Sebelum anda pergi ke gumuk pasir, luangkanlah waktu sedikit untuk melihat cuaca, jika cuaca kurang bagus jangan sampai anda bepergian karena memang tempat dan lokasi gumuk pasir ini tidak sebagaus jika pada musim penghujan.

Jika anda hendak pergi ke gumuk pasir parangkusumo jangan lupa membawa kamera, bekal makanan dan minuman karena memang di area gumuk pasir hanya segelintir orang yang menjual makanan disana apalagi pas anda berkunjung dalam keadaan cuaca panas. karena tubuh anda harus mendapatkan cairan agar terhindar dari dehidrasi.

Berapa Harga Tikek Masuk Gumuk Pasir Parang Kusumo?

Nah, kemarin saya bersama keluarga tidak membayar  uang masuk gumuk pasir, karena memang tiketnya sudah jadi satu dengan gerbang masuk ke parang tritis membayar tiket retribusi gerbany seharga 10 ribu dan untuk masuk ke gumuk pasir ini biayanya 3 ribu untuk kendaraan roda dua, dan untuk mobil kemungkinan biaya parkirnya mencapai 10 ribu rupiah.

Alamat Lokasi Gumuk Pasir parangkusumo

Nah, bagi yang ingin ke gumuk pasir parang kusumo karena saking penasarannya belum pernah ke gurun pasir. Tentunya anda sudah hafal jalan ke parangtritis kan! berada di selatan kota yogyakarta yang berjarak kurang lebih 30 km, anda bisa menuju area pantai parang tritis selanjutnya anda belok ke arah barat anda bisa search lokasi dengan alamat berikut ini:

Satwa Langka di Ibu Kota Baru Indonesia

 Cache   
Presiden Republik Indonesia Joko Widodo [Jokowi] resmi mengumumkan Provinsi Kalimantan Timur sebagai Ibu Kota Indonesia yang baru, di Istana Negara, Jakarta, Senin [26 Agustus 2019]. Pernyataan tersebut disampaikan Presiden, setelah melalui kajian mendalam tiga tahun terakhir. Kalimantan Timur, sebagaimana dilansir dari kaltimprov.go.id, merupakan provinsi terluas kedua setelah Papua, dengan potensi sumber daya alam melimpah. Luas hutan Kalimantan Timur, berdasarkan data 2015 sekitar sekitar 8.339.151 hektar, sungguh memiliki keragaman hayati luar biasa.

Berikut delapan satwa langka kebanggaan Indonesia yang ada di Kalimantan Timur, representasi dari sedikitnya kekayaan hayati yang harus dilindungi dan dilestarikan.

Badak Sumatera
Badak sumatera merupakan satwa langka yang berdasarkan IUCN statusnya ditetapkan Kritis [Critically Endangered], atau satu langkah menuju kepunahan di alam liar. Berdasarkan data Population and Habitat Viability Analysis [PHVA] 2015, populasinya diperkirakan kurang dari 100 individu.

Satwa bercula dua ini tersebar hingga India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Thailand, Semenanjung Malaysia, termasuk Kalimantan dan Sumatera, dan diklasifikasikan dalam tiga subjenis.

Badak sumatera diklasifikasikan dalam tiga subjenis. Dicerorhinus sumatrensis sumatrensis tersebar di Sumatera, Malaysia, dan Thailand. Dicerorhinus sumatrensis harrissoni ada di wilayah Kalimantan. Sementara Dicerorhinus sumatrensis lasiotis ditemukan di Vietnam, Myanmar bagian utara hingga Pakistan bagian timur.

Di Kalimantan Timur, jenis Dicerorhinus sumatrensis harrissoni masih ditemukan di Kabupaten Kutai Barat. Satu individu betina bernama Pahu saat ini berada di Suaka Rhino Sumatra [SRS] Hutan Kelian Lestari.

Sementara, untuk subjenis Dicerorhinus sumatrensis lasiotis, beberapa peneliti badak menyebutkan, keberadaannya sudah tidak terlihat lagi sejak puluhan tahun lalu. Diindikasikan punah.

Orangutan Kalimantan
Orangutan merupakan satu-satunya kera besar yang hidup di Asia. Diperkirakan, sekitar 20 ribu tahun lalu, orangutan tersebar di seluruh Asia Tenggara, dari ujung selatan Pulau Jawa hingga ujung utara Pegunungah Himalaya dan Tiongkok bagian selatan. Kini, 90 persen orangutan hanya ada di Indonesia yaitu di Sumatera dan Kalimantan, sementara sisanya ada di Sabah dan Sarawak, Malaysia.

Indonesia merupakan habitat tiga jenis orangutan: orangutan sumatera, orangutan kalimantan, dan orangutan tapanuli. Namun, ketiganya berstatus Kritis [Critically Endangered] berdasarkan kriteria yang ditetapkan International Union for Conservation of Nature [IUCN].

Orangutan kalimantan [Pongo pygmaeus], hampir berada di seluruh hutan daratan rendah Kalimantan [Kalimantan Timur, Kalimantan Barat, Kalimantan Tengah], kecuali Kalimantan Selatan dan Brunei Darussalam.

Orangutan kalimantan dikelompokkan tiga anak jenis yaitu Pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus [utara Sungai Kapuas hingga timur laut Sarawak]; Pongo pygmaeus wurmbii [tersebar dari selatan Sungai Kapuas hingga bagian barat Sungai Barito]; serta Pongo pygmaeus morio [dari Sabah hingga selatan Sungai Mahakam, Kalimantan Timur].

Rangkong
Rangkong merupakan burung yang masuk keluarga Bucerotidae [julang, enggang, dan kangkareng], yang ditandai ukuran tubuhnya dari 65 cm hingga 170 cm.

Di Indonesia, ada 13 jenis rangkong. Sembilan jenis tersebar di Sumatera dan Kalimantan yaitu enggang klihingan, enggang jambul, julang jambul-hitam, julang emas, kangkareng hitam, kangkareng perut-putih, rangkong badak, rangkong gading, dan rangkong papan. Khusus Kalimantan, semua jenis rangkong tersebut dapat dilihat kecuali rangkong papan.

Empat jenis lain adalah julang sumba, julang sulawesi dan kangkareng sulawesi, serta julang papua.

Beruang Madu
Beruang madu merupakan satwa liar dilindungi berdasarkan Undang-Undang No. 5 Tahun 1990 dan juga Peraturan Menteri Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan Republik Indonesia Nomor P.106/MENLHK/SETJEN/KUM.1/12/2018 tentang Jenis Tumbuhan dan Satwa yang Dilindungi.

Berdasarkan CITES [Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species], beruang madu dimasukkan dalam Appendix I sejak 1979 yang berarti tidak diperbolehkan diburu. Sejak 1994, statusnya dikategorikan Rentan [Vulnerable/VU] yang menunjukkan statusnya menghadapi tiga langkah menuju kepunahan di alam liar.

Beruang madu [Helarctos malayanus] merupakan maskot Kota Balikpapan, Kalimantan Timur. Persebarannya ada di ujung timur India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Kamboja, Vietnam, Malaysia, serta Sumatera dan Kalimantan.

Bekantan
Satwa bernama latin Nasalis larvatus ini dikenal dengan julukan kera belanda karena hidungnya mancung. Satwa endemik Kalimantan ini hidup di ekosistem hutan mangrove. Konversi habitat, perburuan, kebakaran hutan, dan illegal logging menyebabkan nasibnya di ujung tanduk.

Bekantan merupakan satwa dilindungi Undang-undang Nomor 5 Tahun 1990 tentang Konservasi Sumber Daya Alam Hayati dan Ekosistemnya. Jenis ini masuk daftar CITES Apendix I yang artinya tidak boleh diperdagangkan. IUCN memasukkan statusnya Genting [Endangered/EN].

Owa
Owa merupakan primata tak berekor anggota suku Hylobatidae. Indonesia merupakan rumah besar 7 jenis owa dari 19 jenis yang ada di Asia. Ada Hylobates moloch [owa jawa] yang tersebar di Jawa Barat dan sebagian Jawa Tengah; Hylobates lar [serudung] yang berada di Sumatera bagian utara; Hylobates agilis [ungko] di Sumatera bagian tengah ke selatan; juga Symphalangus syndactylus [siamang] di seluruh Sumatera.

Berikutnya, Hylobates klosii [bilou] di Pulau Mentawai, Sumatera Barat; Hylobates muelleri [kelempiau] di seluruh Kalimantan; serta Hylobates albibarbis [ungko kalimantan atau kalaweit] yang berada di Kalimantan bagian barat.

Seluruh owa dilindungi Permen LHK P.106/MENLHK/SETJEN/KUM.1/2018 tentang Jenis Tumbuhan dan Satwa yang Dilindungi.

Pesut Mahakam
Pesut Mahakam [Orcaella brevirostris] merupakan lumba-lumba air tawar yang merupakan simbol Provinsi Kalimantan Timur. Habitatnya di Sungai Mahakam. Ukuran tubuh pesut dewasa hingga 2,3 meter dengan berat mencapai 130 kg. Tubuhnya abu-abu atau kelabu dengan bagian bawah lebih pucat.

Badan Konservasi Dunia International IUCN menetapkan statusnya Genting [Endangered/EN]. Penurunan habitat, polusi suara dari frekuensi tinggi kapal yang melintas, industri, sampah hingga jaring adalah ancaman kehidupan yang dihadapi pesut saat ini.

Rencana zonasi habitat pesut di Kutai Kartanegara [Kukar], Kalimantan Timur, yang diusulkan Yayasan RASI [Rare Aquatic Species of Indonesia] adalah harapan utama lestarinya Irrawady Dolphin di masa mendatang.

Penyu
Indonesia merupakan rumah bagi enam spesies penyu dari tujuh spesies yang ada di dunia. Enam jenis tersebut adalah penyu hijau [Chelonia mydas], penyu sisik [Eretmochelys imbricata], penyu lekang [Lepidochelys olivacea], penyu belimbing [Dermochelys coriacea], penyu pipih [Natator depressus], dan penyu bromo [Caretta caretta].

Di perairan Kepulauan Derawan, Kalimantan Timur, banyak ditemukan penyu hijau. Jenis ini merupakan pemakan tumbuhan yang sesekali memangsa hewan kecil.

Berdasarkan Peraturan Menteri Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan Nomor Republik Indonesia Nomor P.106/MENLHK/SETJEN/KUM.1/12/2018 tentang Jenis Tumbuhan dan Satwa yang Dilindungi disebutkan bahwa penyu bromo, penyu hijau, penyu sisik, penyu lekang, dan penyu pipih merupakan jenis dilindungi.

Pelaku kejahatan bisa dijerat UU No.5 Tahun 1990 tentang Konservasi Sumber Daya Alam Hayati dan Ekosistemnya. Ancamannya, 5 tahun penjara dan denda Rp100 juta.

Inside Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney's Honeymoon in Indonesia

 Cache   

Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney's have embarked on an idyllic honeymoon after saying "I do."

The Oscar winner and her art gallerist beau tied the knot in Rhode Island in mid-October, exchanging vows in front of celeb guests Adele, Ashley Olsen, Nicole Richie, Joel Madden, and Cameron Diaz. The couple's nuptials came eight months after Lawrence's rep confirmed the Hunger Games star's engagement to E! News. Lawrence and Maroney, who works as a director at Gladstone 64, first sparked romance rumors in the summer of 2018.

Now that Maroney and Lawrence are officially husband and wife, the couple has jetted off for a romantic honeymoon. According to People, the newlyweds are staying at the Nihi Sumba Resort, located in Indonesia.

"At Nihi Sumba, we build itineraries that transcend a traditional vacation experience. We foster creativity and passion in our guests, helping them unplug from their hyper connected lives and reconnect with earth and community," the resort's website states. "Each experience is singular, custom. Made to fit each guest differently. The days are yours, let us help you design your adventure."

7 Things to Know About Jennifer Lawrence & Cooke Maroney's Romance

Lawrence and Maroney are reportedly staying at the residence of resort owner Chris Burch. The five-villa estate, called the Raja Mandaka, offers gorgeous views of the ocean and a luxury pool.

So, how much does it cost to stay in the five-villa Mandaka estate? That would be $12,745 per night! That means, if Lawrence and Maroney decided to stay for a week, it would typically cost them just under $90,000.

A source also told People that the couple went horseback riding during their stay at the resort. According to the resort's price list, equestrian activities for couples range from $140 (swimming with horses) to $300 (Nihioka Ride & Breakfast).

If the newlyweds wanted to take a private surf lesson on their honeymoon, the total cost for a couple is listed at $495 for an hour and a half. The resort also has a spa, which offers massages, manicures, and body treatments, among other options. And if Lawrence and Maroney wanted to enjoy a private yoga session, they'd be looking at a $200 price tag for an hour session.

And, fun fact for those Hills fans out there, this resort is the location where Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter had a wedding celebration in June 2018. Though a source later shared that the duo, who called it quits over the summer, were never legally married.

Check out the video above to see more of the gorgeous resort!

Brasil sospecha que buque griego es culpable de derrame petrolero en sus playas

Brasil sospecha que buque griego es culpable de derrame petroleroManchas de petróleo en las playas brasileñas.

La Policía Federal de Brasil puso este viernes fin al misterio del vertido de petróleo que era invetigado desde finales de agosto. Cientos de miles de manchas de petróleo aparecían (y siguen apareciendo) en las playas de la costa noreste del Brasil sin que se supiera su origen.

 

Después de semanas de investigación iniciadas en septiembre, la Policía Federal concluyó que el culpable de esta nueva catástrofe ambiental es un buque de bandera griega, el buque tanque "Bouboulinha".

 

Para la investigación la Policía contó con la ayuda de la Armada Brasileña, la Fiscalía Federal, el Instituto Brasileño del Medio Ambiente, la Agencia Nacional del Petróleo, la Universidad Federal de Bahía, la Universidad de Brasilia y la Universidad del Estado de Ceará, además de una empresa especializada en geointeligencia.

 

La nave atracó en Venezuela el 15 de julio, y tres días después partió rumbo a Malasia. El vertido habría ocurrido entre los días 28 y 29 de julio. Gracias a técnicas de geointeligencia y cálculos oceanográficos fue posible identificar al único petrolero que navegó en la zona donde se inició el derrame, a poco más de 700 kilómetros de la costa del estado brasileño de Paraíba.

 

Dicha embarcación tiene una capacidad de casi 80.000 toneladas de petróleo, pero habría vertido al mar una cantidad mucho menor, alrededor de 2.500 toneladas. La Policía ha pedido colaboración a cinco países a través de la Interpol para localizar al comandante del buque tanque y a sus armadores.

 

El Bouboulina, que teóricamente ahora está cumpliendo un itinerario entre Nigeria e Indonesia, tiene un historial turbio; dado que en abril pasado estuvo retenido cuatro días en Estados Unidos por problemas en un filtro de descarte de residuos.

 

"Tenemos el local, la fecha y los indicios suficientes de la autoría, ahora faltan los detalles de las circunstancias. La investigación sigue en marcha para saber si fue un escape o un derrame provocado", aseveró el comisario federal Agostinho Cascardo.

 

El vertido se detectó por primera vez el 30 de agosto, y desde entonces, la lista de playas afectadas no ha hecho más que aumentar. Según el último recuento del Instituto Brasileño de Medio Ambiente (Ibama), entregado el 31 de octubre, ya son 286 playas en 97 municipios de los nueve estados del noreste brasileño, según consignó El Mundo de España.

 

La región es famosa por sus paradisíacas playas de cocoteros, manglares y arrecifes de coral, y alberga algunas de las playas más conocidas del país. Jericoacoara, Praia do Forte, Morro de São Paulo, Praia dos Carneiros, o los Lençóis Maranhenses, entre muchas otras, se han visto afectadas por el vertido en los últimos días en mayor o menor medida.


          

China encamina la mayor alianza económica de libre comercio del mundo sin EE.UU.

 Cache   

Los lideres del ASEAN en la primera sesión de la cumbre en Bangkok, REUTERSCumbre de ASEAN en Bankgok, REUTERS

La cumbre de la Asociación de Naciones del Sudeste Asiático se lleva a cabo en Bangkok y se produce sin la presencia de Donald Trump que había sido especialmente invitado y con el régimen chino ocupando todo el espacio y camino a coronar en este foro la alianza económica de libre comercio más grande del mundo.

 

La ASEAN, un bloque defensor del liberalismo económico y que ha sido crítico de las políticas proteccionistas aplicadas por Estados Unidos, abrió el encuentro con la celebración de la sesión plenaria de los países miembros, a la que las sesiones con China y una delegación de bajo perfil despachada por EE.UU. Beijing, en cambio, envió a su primer ministro Li Keqiang a una cita en la que apuesta cuotas de enorme influencia.

 

El largo enfrentamiento comercial entre estas dos potencias mundiales y sus efectos sobre la economía global es uno los temas centrales de la cumbre. El ciclo de crecimiento planetario se ralentizó debido a ese enfrentamiento según dictaminó el Fondo Monetario Internacional y el Banco Mundial. El ministro filipino de Comercio, Ramón López, reconoció a la prensa que las medidas aplicadas por Washington y Beijing "afectan de manera negativa al crecimiento económico" de su país y el resto de las naciones.

 

El plato fuerte del foro de Bangkok y al que hay que prestar especial atención es la tercera ronda de negociaciones de líderes de la Asociación Económica Integral Regional (RCEP) donde se marcha a concretar la firma de un megatratado de libre comercio que aunaría a más de un tercio de la economía mundial. La República Popular ha venido ocupando foros alrededor del mundo reclamando la liberación del intercambio comercial y repudiando el proteccionismo de Washington.

 

China es el integrante más poderoso y principal impulsor del RCEP, que también incluye a Australia, Corea del Sur, Japón, India, Nueva Zelanda. A ellos se unan los diez miembros de la ASEAN, formada por Birmania, Brunéi, Camboya, Filipinas, Indonesia, Laos, Malasia, Singapur, Tailandia y Vietnam. El ministro filipino precisó que 15 de las naciones han mostrado su completa conformidad al pacto negociado, pero que todavía "esperan a un país". No lo dijo pero se refería a la India que ha tenido suspicacias respecto a la influencia creciente de China.

 

La importancia de ese convenio lo dan los números. El RCEP, cuyas negociaciones se iniciaron de manera formal en la ASEAN de 2012 celebrada en Camboya, engloba una población de 3.400 millones de personas -el 47 % de la población mundial- y un Producto Interior Bruto de 22,6 billones de dólares, superior a EE.UU. y el 32,2 % del PIB mundial. También aglutina el 29 % del comercio mundial y el 32,5 % de la inversión mundial.

 

A pesar de los grandes datos que presenta el megatratado, las negociaciones han sido lentas y complicadas y desde hace ya cinco años las dirigentes políticos de las naciones implicadas aseguran reiteradamente estar cerca de alcanzar un acuerdo, para al final postergarlo al año siguiente.

 

Entre los obstáculos que han impedido el avance, se encuentran precisamente los temores de Nueva Delhi a que el RCEP acabe dañando la manufactura local e India se vea inundada por productos fabricados en China. Beijing sugirió a fin de avanzar con el acuerdo dejar que India se asocie en una etapa posterior del RCEP.

 

La ausencia de Trump en una cumbre de este significado, no sorprendió a los analistas. El presidente norteamericano, en una de sus primeras gestiones tras llegar a la Casa Blanca, anuló la participación de EE.UU. en un acuerdo tras-pacífico que impulsó el ex presidente Barack Obama. Esa iniciativa pretendía aislar comercialmente a China. Un dato del desdén de la Casa Blanca, es que en la delegación que envió a Bangkok figura el ministro de Comercio Wilbur Ross pero también su asesor de seguridad nacional Robert O´Brien. La decisión de Trump de bajar el perfil de esta cumbre, liberó al gigante asiático para aumentar su influencia en la región e insistir en asumirse como el adalid del libre comercio arrebatando esa bandera a Washington.

 

Además de los asuntos económicos, la agenda de la cumbre también incluye asuntos de seguridad, sanidad, desarrollo de la región o medidas destinadas a combatir la contaminación y la lucha contra cambio climático, entre otros temas.

Tryton News: Tryton Release 5.4

 Cache   

@ced wrote:

We are proud to announce the 5.4 release of Tryton.
In addition to my bug fixes and performance improvements, this release improves in many place the user experience. It also extends a lot the existing workflow to support more use cases. We see 8 new modules landing as official.

You can have a try on the demo server, use the docker image or download it here.
As usual the migration from previous series is fully supported. Some manual operation may be required, see Migration from 5.2 to 5.4.

Here is the list of the most noticeable changes:
(For a more complete list, see the change log of each package)

Contents

Changes For The User

We can show a visual context on the rows or cells. Those visual context can be muted , success , warning or danger. Many modules have been updated to use them like the payable and receivable today on the party or when an invoice is due etc.

In the search bar of the clients, we enabled the direct search on fields of relational field types, like One2Many, Many2Many and Many2One. This is done by appending a dot to the relational field name and then the name of the field in the relation model. E.g. On products filter you can use the search clause Variants.Code: PROD, to find all products, which variants have a code named PROD.
The search entry provides completion for such related fields.
By default only one level of completion is activated but customization can activate more. This feature also works on the keys of dictionary fields like the product attributes.

Now the clients display a more user-friendly error messages for domain validation error. The clients display the exact failing constraint using the same format of the search bar.

All the list views have been reviewed. The most important fields are now expanded to take advantage of available space. For main editable view, the creation of new record is done on top instead of bottom to avoid to load all the records.

For now, an CSV export created by a user will be only available for him by default. The administrator can make an export available to a group of users.

Desktop Client

Now, when drag&drop is available on a view, we show a draggable icon to notify the user but also to provide a handle to drag which is easier when the list is editable.

Draggable handler on tryton

Web Client

The web client now supports drag and drop to order list and tree rows like in the desktop client. There is one small difference to insert a row inside a non-expanded row: The user must drop it below the row while pressing the CTRL key. Otherwise the row is dropped next to the row.

The column size of the web client has been improved. Now columns have a minimal width (depending of the type) and a double scrollbar (top and bottom) is displayed if there is not enough space to show all the columns on the view-port.

Accounting

The constraint that prevented to use twice the same invoice sequence per fiscal year, has been relaxed. Now Tryton checks only that the sequence was not used to number an invoice with a later date.

Since 14 September 2019, Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) has been introduced by EU regulators to reduce online fraud and make the internet a safer place to transact. For that Stripe has introduced the Setup Intent and Payment Intent mechanism for credit card payment. Tryton now supports them in addition to the former mechanism (for SEPA, SOFORT etc.).

Some financial institute have precise requirement about which initiator identifier to use the SEPA message. For that we added a configuration options on the payment journal. The available options for now are: “SEPA Creditor Identifier”, “Belgian Enterprise Number”, “Spanish VAT Number”.

Until now, it was possible to cancel a posted supplier invoice but not one from a customer. This was because in many countries it is not allowed. But in order to be more flexible, we added an option on the company to allow cancel of customer invoice.

When creating manually an accounting move, we set the date to today by default if the current period is selected. Otherwise it is still the start date of the period.

The wizard that renew automatically the fiscal year, now update the sequence name if it contains the year.

When migrating to Tryton, the accountant needs to fill depreciation of existing asset which has already been deprecated. To ease the encoding and ensure a correct computation, we added a field to store the already depreciated amount for the asset. This amount will be deducted from the asset value before continuing the depreciation computation.

To ensure that any tax line will be reported in tax statement, the tax is always required on the tax line.

It is now possible to define default values for the customer and supplier tax rules. This can be useful to apply a local tax rule based on subdivision by default.

In addition to the country, the tax rules can now be written using the subdivisions of origin and/or destination. A child subdivision will match the rule based on an upper level subdivision. This is useful for countries that have different tax rates for some subdivisions.

The income statement is included in the balance sheet for the Spanish accounting (as it is done for other countries). So the running income of the current year is already included before the year closing.

Bank

The BIC of banks are now validated and formatted. This avoid encoding error and ease the research.

Party

Until now, the subdivision on an address was limited to the top-level subdivision of the country. It is now possible to define which types of subdivision are allowed to be used. Tryton comes with some configurations following the country rules for postal address format.

Product

Now it is possible to configure a sequence for the product code that will be used to be filled at creation time. This may be used to ensure to have a unique code per product, even when it is duplicated.

Like for parties, we added on product a list of identifiers. By default, Tryton supports and validates these numbers: EAN, ISAN, ISBN, ISIL, ISIN and ISMN. Non-standard identifiers are supported also. These identifiers are used for matching when searching products by name.

The product cost price can be used in the price list. It uses the cost price of the company set in the context. This allows to build price lists by defining a margin to apply on the cost.

You can now define which unit of measure is the basis for quantities used in a price list. In standard modules we support the default unit (the original one) and the sale unit.

Purchase

It is now possible to configure the customer code of the current company on the supplier party. The code will be displayed on the request for quotation .

The same processing delay for purchases is added to the requisitions. This allows to reset an approved requisition to draft if it was not yet automatically processed.

Sale

We added the same processing delay for sales to the sale complaints. So you can reset to draft a complaint after being approved or rejected if it was not yet automatically processed.

We added an option to deactivate a subscription service. This prevents to use these service for new subscriptions.

We allow now to finish a subscription line before the next consumption. This gives more flexibility about ending subscription.

Stock

Now users are able to set a default warehouse in the preferences.
This is useful for companies with multiple warehouses. It saves time for the users as they could have the warehouse filled-in for which they work.

You can use consumable products in an inventory if needed. There are still no requirements and the inventory is not automatically filled with products of this type.

When you are looking at the evolution of the stock quantity for a product, you can open the date to see the moves involved for the changes.

When opening the graph of product quantities by warehouse, if there was no move for the current date, the user can not see the current quantity. Now we add always an entry for the current date.

We force now to always have a minimal quantity for the order point. This avoid confusion for the case where it was not set. Now if you do not want to trigger the purchase or production for any quantity, the user must set an explicit negative quantity.

Timesheet

When using the “Enter Timesheet” wizard, now we display the date in the window name (next to the employee name). The shown date is the one selected in the first step of the wizard.

New Modules

Secondary Unit

These modules allow to define a different secondary unit and factor on the product for sale and for purchase.
The quantity of sale and purchase lines can be defined using the secondary unit fields (quantity and unit price), the main unit fields are automatically updated using the product factor.
On related documents like the invoice or shipment, the secondary fields are displayed using the factor stored on the sale or purchase.

Amendment

The amendment modules allow you to change sales and purchases that are being processed and keeping track of those changes. When an amendment is validated the document is updated and given a new revision. If needed, the invoices or shipments are also updated or recreated to match the new order.

Purchase and Sale History

These modules activate the history on sales and purchases but also add a revision number which is incremented each time the document is reset to draft. The revision number is appended to the document number to ensure parties are communicating about the same version.

New Languages

  • Indonesian

Changes For The Developer

It is now possible to use SQL expressions as value with the create/write methods. The main purpose is to be able to use the time functions of the database server which are linked to the transaction instead of the one provided by the Tryton server.

The expand attribute has been changed from a Boolean (1 or 0) into an integer. The integer represents the proportion of available space which is taken among all expanded columns.

The format_date method on Report can now take an optional format parameter if you don’t want to use the default format of the language.
The Report receives also a new method format_timedelta. It uses the same representation as the clients to format duration field values.

There is now an environment variable to set the default logging level when running trytond as a WSGI application.

Now we have a lazy_gettext method which allows to defer the translation by using a LazyString . It can be used as label or help text of Fields . This is useful for base Model classes and Mixins to limit the duplication of the translation of the same string for each derived class.

Now we prevent to set a value for an unknown field in proteus scripts and in Tryton modules model definitions. For that we add __slots__ automatically on each model. A positive side effect is that it reduces also the memory consumption of each instance.

The PYSON Eval now supports the dotted notation. This feature is a common expectation from beginners. So we decided it is good to support it.

We have already a multiselection widget to use with a Many2Many field. But now we have also a MultiSelection field which stores a list of value as a JSON list in the database. This is useful when the selection has a few options. For now, the widget is also available on list views (but not editable). And the field is usable in the search bar of the client.

You can now define a different start date when using PYSON Date or DateTime with delta.

Now we give the possibility to define a different order (alphabetic) to the keys of a Dict field.

Even if cron jobs are relaunch, it is better to retry directly them few times when a DatabaseOperationalError is raised. This also avoid unnecessary errors in the logs.

Missing a depends on a method is a common mistake. We have improved the generic test to catch more cases like missing or empty parent or unknown field. All the modules have been checked and corrected against this new tests.

Accounting

The generic checkout page for Stripe has been updated to use Stripe.js and support setup and payment intent.
Until now, it was required to setup a webhook from Stripe to Tryton in order to receive the events to update asynchronously the workflow of the payments. Now if you do not setup such webhook, a cron task will fetch periodically the new events and process them. This is useful for testing or when Tryton can not be reached from outside.

We require now to have a fresh session to post a statement. If it is not the case, the client will request to re-enter the user password (or any other authentication method configured).

Country/Currency

The countries, subdivisions and currencies are no more loaded from XML at the module installation but using proteus scripts which use pycountry data: trytond_import_countries and trytond_import_currencies . The translations are also loaded by those scripts.
This reduces the maintenance load of each release and allows users to keep their database up to date without relying on Tryton releases.

Party

As the countries are no more managed as XML data in Tryton (but by import script). The address format are now using country and language code instead of Many2One. So a format can be created even if the country or the language do not yet exist.

Stock

As we now keep a link between the inventory moves and the outgoing moves, we simplified the synchronization algorithm to use this link. Another advantage is that if the product is changed on the inventory move, the outgoing move is also updated instead of creating a new move.

    - 2010년 호주 줄리아 길라드(Julia Gillard) 총리와 인도네시아 수실로 밤방 유도요노(Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono) 대통령을 통해 시작된 자유무역협정 협상을 시작으로 지난 8년간의 지속적인 협의 및 타진을 통해 20193 4일 두 국가는 인도네시아-호주 경제동반자 정((Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement, IA‑CEPA)에 서명했음.

    - 한편 지난 2019 10 20일 호주 스콧 모리슨(Scott Morrison) 총리가 인도네시아 대통령 2기 취임식 축하를 위해 인도네시아를 방문했으며, 조코 위도도(Joko Widodo) 인도네시아 대통령과의 긍정적 정상회담을 통해 가까운 시일 내 FTA 협정이 발효될 것으로 기대되고 있음.

    - 또한 호주 정부가 야당에서 요구한 FTA 관련 수정안 중 상당 부분을 수용해 지난 10월 21 FTA 비준안이 하원에서 통과됐고 11월 상원에서도 무탈한 통과가 예상되고 있음.

 

  ㅇ 상품 무역 부문

    - 인도네시아로 수출되는 호주 원산지 상품의 99% 이상이 2020년까지 면세 또는 상당히 개선된 관세를 적용받도록 조정될 예정임. 이는 현재 적용되고 있는 아세안-호주-뉴질랜드 자유무역협정(ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand) 85%보다 높은 수준임.

    - 인도네시아는 호주산 송아지, 냉동 쇠고기, 양고기, 곡물사료, 강판 코일, 감귤류, 당근 및 감자 등의 주요 상품에 대해 수입 허가 자동 발급을 보장하기로 함.

    - 호주는 수출 및 수입업자의 상품 무역 촉진을 위해 행정 절차를 개선하기로 했으며, 호주는 아세안-호주-뉴질랜드 자유무역헙정을 바탕으로 인도네시아 제품의 호주 수입에 대한 잔여 관세를 즉시 철폐할 예정임.

    - 또한 호주에서는 FTA 최초로 비관세조치에 대한 정기적 논의를 가능하게 하는 양자 협력 메커니즘을 마련해 양국 간 비관세장벽에 대한 개선 방안을 지속 논의해 갈 예정임.

    - 해당 FTA의 일환으로 인도네시아 정부의 요청에 따라 호주는 인도네시아 전기차에 대한 자유로운 원산지 요건을 제공하기로 함.

 

  ㅇ 서비스 및 투자

    - 교육 서비스는 호주의 대인도네시아 주요 서비스 수출 분야 중 하나로 2018년 기준 99800만 호주 달러에 달함. 한편, 여행 상품은 인도네시아의 주요 서비스 수출 분야임.

    - 인도네시아는 호주의 투자를 늘리기 위해 기술 및 직업 교육, 노인 간호 및 각종 서비스업을 포함한 다양한 산업을 개방하기로 합의함. 또한 해당 협정을 통해 인도네시아 내 위치하고 있는 호주 소유의 비즈니스에서 관련 기술, 직업 교육 및 훈련 제공이 가능하도록 하며 호주 주요 기업들이 인도네시아 광업 및 에너지 관련 서비스 부문에 투자가 가능하도록 했음. 호주 관광 서비스 회사는 인도네시아 서비스 사업에 다수의 지분을 보유할 수 있으며, 국경 간 서비스를 제공할 수 있도록 함.

    - 호주는 인도네시아인의 호주 워킹홀리데이 비자(Australian work and holiday visas) 수용률을 높일 예정으로 현재 약 연 1000건에서 4100건으로 증대했고 향후 6년 동안 총 5000건 정도로 추가 확대할 예정임. 이는 인도네시아의 젊은이들에게 유용한 해외 근무 경험을 제공할 뿐만 아니라 호주 지방 및 계절에 따른 부족한 노동 인력의 충원이 가능할 것으로 기대됨.

    - 인적 교류의 일환으로 호주와 인도네시아는 상호 기술 교환에 합의하고 양국의 3급 기술 자격을 갖춘 인재들을 대상으로 상대국에서 6개월 간의 경험을 쌓을 수 있도록 협의함. 또한 호주는 연간 최대 200명의 인도네시아인이 6개월간 호주 내 취업 훈련에 참여할 수 있도록 추진함.

    - 해당 자유무역협정을 통해 인도네시아의 에너지 및 인프라 등 주요 부문에 대한 투자 규제를 구체적으로 완화해 보다 확실성 있는 투자가 가능하도록 지원함.

An Indonesian lawmaker who helped write strict anti-adultery laws in a semi-autonomous region of the country recieved 28 lashes after he was caught committing adultery himself.

The man, Mukhlis bin Muhammad, worked for the Aceh Ulema Council (MPU,) the Islamic lawmaking body in Aceh, a semi-autonomous region of Sumatra, Indonesia's largest island.

The charlatan was busted by Aceh religious police in a car with a married woman near a tourist beach in September, BBC Indonesia reported.

He was flogged in public on Thursday, as was the woman, who was not named. The woman recieved 23 lashes.

"This is God's law. Anyone must be flogged if proven guilty, even if he is a member of the MPU," Husaini Wahab, the deputy mayor of Aceh Besar, told BBC Indonesia.

Aceh has used Shariah law, a strict interpretation of legal guidelines laid out in the Qu'ran, since 2005.

Homosexuality is illegal in Aceh, as is gambling, sex before marriage, adultery, and alcohol in any form.

This timeline shows exactly what happened on board the Lion Air Boeing 737 Max that crashed in less than 13 minutes, killing 189 people

 Cache   

Lion Air JT610

  • Lion Air flight JT 610, a Boeing 737 Max, crashed into the sea in October 2018. All 189 people on board died.
  • The official crash report, released by Indonesia last week, gives a definitive timeline of what happened on the doomed flight.
  • It shows that the pilots tried more than 20 times to stop the plane's computer forcing its nose down. But they could not bring it under control, and the plane crashed into the sea at 450mph.
  • This is the full timeline of the fatal flight, according to investigators.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Lion Air flight JT 610 took off from Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport at 6.20 a.m. on October 29, 2018. Less than 13 minutes later it smashed into the sea, killing everyone on board.

It was the first of two fatal crashes for Boeing's 737 Max. A second crashed over Ethiopia in March 2019, leading to the grounding of the plane, and plunging Boeing into an ongoing crisis.

The final report, released by investigators last week, pointed to flaws in Boeing's design of the plane, as well as mistakes by the airline and its staff.

The timeline it outlines shows the crew wrestling to control the plane as automatic anti-stall software, known as MCAS, overrode their instructions and pushed the nose down more than 20 times. It crashed into the Java Sea at around 450mph.

Here is what happened on board:

6.18 a.m.: JT 610 was given clearance to take off from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. On board are 189 people: 181 passengers, 2 pilots, and 6 flight attendants.

It was bound for Pangkal Pinang on Indonesia's Bangka Island.

Before the plane took off, the crew noted that the weather conditions on the route were good.

 



6.20 a.m., 16 seconds: Unusual readings were recorded while still on the ground, less than 30 seconds before takeoff. Two displays in the cockpit recorded different wind speeds, while the plane's two angle of attack sensors, which measure its orientation in the air, disagreed by a substantial 21 degrees.



6.20 a.m., 32 seconds: The plane experienced a "control column stick shaker" warning, which physically shakes the plane's controls to alert the pilots of a potential stall. It continued for most of the flight.

This video shows the controls column stick shaker on flight simulator for the Boeing 737-800, a predecessor to the 737 Max.

6.20 a.m., 37 seconds: The plane sounded a "takeoff configuration warning" — a generic alert which flags potential problems. The report says the captain queried the alert, but gives no further detail.



6.20 a.m, 40 seconds: Takeoff. The captain is flying. Problems begin to come thick and fast.



6.20 a.m., 44 seconds: Sensors started recording two different airspeeds. The first officer asked the captain what the problem is, and if they should turn back. He did not respond.

The plane's black box, recovered after the crash, said one indicator recorded a speed of 164 knots while the other recorded 173 knots.



6.21 a.m., 12 seconds: The first officer told the captain that on-board sensors were giving two different altitude readings, more than 200ft apart. The captain spoke with an air traffic controller in the terminal, who said to climb higher.

The altimeter on the captain's primary flight display indicated 340 feet, while the first officer's indicated 570 feet.



6.21 a.m., 28 seconds: The first officer asked the controller to confirm the altitude of the plane. The controller said it was 900ft. On the plane, one display said 790ft, the other said 1,040ft.



6.21 a.m., 37 seconds: The captain asked the first officer to run through a memorized checklist for what to do when the plane is giving unreliable airspeed readings. The first officer did not respond. The first officer suggested flying downwind, which the captain rejected.



6.21 a.m., 52 seconds: The first officer asked permission to move into a holding pattern, citing a "flight control problem." The controller did not respond to the holding pattern request, and later did not remember it being made.



6.22 a.m., 4 seconds: After a suggestion from the first officer, the captain adjusted the plane's flaps from the "Flaps 5" setting, to the more flat "Flaps 1" setting. He then asked the first officer to take over the controls.



6.22 a.m., 15 seconds: The controller noted that the plane's altitude was decreasing, from 1,700ft to 1,600ft. The plane's controls still showed two different speeds.



6.22 a.m., 24 seconds: The captain and controller agreed that the plane should climb to 5,000 feet. The plane still showed two different speeds.



6.22 a.m., 32 seconds: An alarm warned that the plane was flying at a steep angle. The black box showed the plane briefly banked to 35 degrees, as if to turn.



6.22 a.m., 44 seconds: The plane, which appears not to have made it to the planned 5,000ft, instead rapidly descends 600ft. It has been in the air just two minutes.



6.22 a.m., 48 seconds: Sensors on the plane radically disagree about its angle of attack. One says the plane is flying with its nose pointing 18 degrees up, the other says it is flying with the nose 3 degrees down.



Angle of attack sensors compare the angle of the wings to the direction of the plane, to establish the orientation of the plane in the sky. Angle of attack data is what triggers the MCAS system on a 737 Max — the faulty system which led to the crash.

This video explains the measurement:

Width: 560px
Height: 315px

Boeing has been criticized for how the Max design relied on information from only one angle of attack sensor, meaning that a single faulty reading could trigger MCAS.



6.23 a.m, 0 seconds: The plane warns of low speed. There are still contradictory readings of how fast it is actually going.

The controller said the ground speed of the aircraft, shown on the radar display, was 322 knots.

But the black box showed the captain's flight display indicated the speed was 306 knots, and the first officer's indicated 318 knots.



6.23 a.m., 4 seconds: The control column stick shaker again warned of a possible stall. The plane warns of both too much speed and not enough speed.



6.23 a.m., 9 seconds: The captain asked the first officer for a memorized checklist of what to do, but gets no reply.



6.23 a.m., 15 seconds: An automatic system on board the plane begins to force its nose down, activating for 11 of the next 17 seconds.

According to the timeline, this is not yet in response to the MCAS system which will ultimately force the plane to crash.



6.23 a.m., 39 seconds: The cockpit voice recorder picks up a sound of pages turning, suggesting the pilots looked at a manual. The captain turned the aircraft nose up.



6.23 a.m., 48 seconds: The first officer gave the warning "flight control low pressure" — which appears to refer to pressure in the hydraulic systems that control the plane. Separately, an altitude warning sounds.



6.24 a.m., 5 seconds: The captain again asked for a checklist of what to do when the plane's airspeed recorders can't be relied on, but the first officer said he could not find it. The cockpit voice recorder again picked up the sound of pages turning.



6.24 a.m., 52 seconds: The plane's flaps changed position, though the cockpit voice recorder did not any note any discussion about changing them. The controller gave instructions to change the plane's direction and altitude. The captain turned the plane's nose up.



6.25 a.m., 11 seconds: The plane's flaps changed position, again without discussion between the pilots.



6.25 a.m., 27 seconds: The plane's MCAS system begins to activate. In six and a half minutes time it will have crashed the plane. First. it pushes the nose down for two seconds. The captain interrupted it, pushing the nose up for six seconds.



MCAS and its failings are now well-known in the aviation world. But many 737 Max pilots say they had no idea it even existed until after the crashes. It probably took the two Lion Air pilots totally by surprise.

MCAS was meant to stop the 737 Max from stalling, counteracting a tendency for the nose to drift upwards by forcing it back down.

Boeing did not mention the MCAS system — what it is or how to manage any malfunctions — in the flight manual for pilots.



6.25 a.m., 40 seconds: MCAS activated six times in the next two minutes, pushing the plane's nose down until the captain interrupted it.



6.27 a.m., 3 seconds: The controller told the plane to change direction to avoid traffic in the air. The first officer, still reading the checklist for how to deal with bad airspeed readings, did not respond until the third time.

The cockpit voice recorder showed that the pilots frantically read through the manual for a solution as the plane went out of control.



6.27 a.m., 15 seconds: MCAS activated four more times in the next minute and was overridden by the captain again. The first officer said he would run a check based on the list he had been reading.



6.28 a.m., 18 seconds: The first officer called a flight attendant into the cockpit, and the captain then asked him to call for an airline engineer who was on board to come in. MCAS activated twice more, and the captain said: "Look what happened."



6.28 a.m., 43 seconds: The controller gave more instructions for the direction and altitude of the plane, while a conversation between flight attendants "discussed that there was a technical issue in the cockpit.". MCAS activated three more times in less than a minute.



6.29 a.m., 37 seconds: The controller told the crew that his radar screen showed the plane descending, and the first officer responded to say that they were having a flight control problem and were flying the plane manually. MCAS activated twice more.



6.30 a.m., 2 seconds: The first officer contacted a different air traffic controller, the one in charge of arrivals at Soekarno-Hatta airport. He said the plane was having a flight control problem. The controller told the plane to come back to the runway it took off from.



6.30 a.m., 6 seconds: MCAS activated three more times in less than a minute, with the captain overriding it.



6.30 a.m., 48 seconds: The captain asked the first officer to take control. The first officer pushed the plane's nose up, and said 5 seconds later: "I have control."



6.30 a.m., 57 seconds: The captain asked the arrival controller for permission to land the plane at a different location, away from the airport, because of the weather. The request was approved.



6.31 a.m., 8 seconds: The captain told the controller that he could not work out his altitude because the sensors were giving so many different readings. Seemingly flustered, he referred to the flight as number 650 instead of 610.



6.31 a.m., 15 seconds: The first officer repeatedly pointed the plane's nose up. MCAS activated twice in the next twelve seconds.



6.31 a.m., 19 seconds: The captain asked the controller to clear all planes from 3,000 feet above and below the plane to avoid any collisions.



6.33 a.m, 31 seconds: The first officer twice told the captain that the plane was flying downwards. The second time, the captain said "it's OK." The plane was descending relatively gently, at around 1,920 feet per minute. MCAS activated again.



6.31 a.m, 46 seconds: Only a few seconds later, the plane's rate of descent increases rapidly. Black box readings show it descending at more than 10,000ft per minute, giving them only seconds to avoid hitting the sea.



6.31 a.m., 51: Five seconds later, the plane warns of its rapid descent and the approaching sea. There is almost no time left.



6.31 a.m, 53 seconds: MCAS activated for a final time. One second later, the flight record and cockpit voice recorder stop working. Air traffic control tries six times to contact the pilots, to no response. Other planes in the area are asked to try to see what happened.



7.05 a.m.: Around half an hour later, a tugboat found debris that was later found to be part of the plane. The crash is confirmed. There are no survivors.




          

The 25-year-old who invented a way to clean plastic out of the ocean just debuted a barge that captures trash in rivers, before it gets to the sea

 Cache   

Ocean Cleanup Interceptor

Around 8.8 million tons of plastic enter the world's oceans each year — the equivalent of a truckload of garbage every minute. Over time, this trash can accumulate in offshore garbage patches and linger there for decades

The largest of these vortexes, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, is located in Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and California. It's estimated to contain more than 1.8 trillion pieces of floating plastic — the equivalent of 250 pieces of debris for every person on Earth.

For the last six years, a nonprofit called The Ocean Cleanup has been developing a system to passively collect plastic from the garbage patch using the ocean's current. The product of those efforts — a floating, U-shaped device that traps plastic in its fold like a giant arm — has finally been working as planned for the last month.

But even that success doesn't stop any new plastic from entering the ocean.

To address that problem, The Ocean Cleanup recently designed a new device called "The Interceptor." It's essentially a catamaran that glides across the surface of rivers, channeling plastic toward a conveyor belt. The trash then gets deposited into attached dumpsters.

Since most marine plastic comes from rivers, the vessel could help address the waste problem before it reaches an ocean garbage patch. 

The Ocean Cleanup Malaysia

The organization's 25-year-old founder, Boyan Slat, unveiled the new device  at an event in the Netherlands on October 26. 

Plastic in rivers enters a conveyor belt then gets deposited into floating dumpsters

The Ocean Cleanup estimates that 1,000 rivers — around 1% of the global total — carry roughly 80% of the plastic that winds up in the ocean out to sea. The rivers responsible for the most marine pollution, they found, are small waterways in urban areas. 

So the organization created the Interceptor to collect plastic from these rivers.

The vessel moves with the water's current, so it doesn't need to be towed. Plastic on the water's surface gets pushed by the current toward a conveyor belt, then funneled into six dumpsters on a separate barge that floats underneath the vessel.

When the dumpsters get full, the system sends a message to operators on land. The operators can then dispatch a boat to tow the barge (and the plastic waste) to shore. The Ocean Cleanup estimates that one Interceptor can remove around 110 tons of plastic per day. 

The device's lights, sensors, and conveyor belt are 100% solar-powered.

Ocean Cleanup Interceptor

The Interceptor is designed to operate in almost any river, but it can be tailored to suit different types of conditions. For example, some rivers have a concentrated path of debris, so the conveyor belt can simply take in the trash that flows toward the vessel; in other cases, a guardrail can channel plastic toward the vessel's mouth.

Two vessels are already operating in Malaysia and Indonesia

The Ocean Cleanup has so far built four prototypes of the Interceptor and deployed two of them. 

The Ocean Cleanup River Device

The first prototype was dispatched in the Cengkareng Drain, a river that runs through Jakarta, Indonesia. It includes a guardrail to funnel plastic toward the conveyor belt. Instead of depositing trash into dumpsters, the belt dumps waste into giant garbage bags that are then towed to shore.

The second prototype was dispatched in the Klang River in Malaysia. The waterway abuts Port Klang — a well known dumping ground for plastic waste. On that vessel, the conveyor belts sends plastic directly into dumpsters on the floating barge. 

The organization plans to deploy one of the remaining prototypes in Vietnam's Mekong Delta, and the other in a river in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic.

By the end of 2025, The Ocean Cleanup hopes to deploy their vessel in the 1,000 rivers worldwide that send the most plastic pollution into the ocean.

Presiden Jokowi Akan Seleksi 755 Desain Ibukota Baru

 Cache   
RMOLBANTEN. Sudah ada 755 peserta lomba gagasan desain Ibukota baru telah terkumpul. Nantinya Presiden Joko Widodo akan memilih tiga di antaranya.

Hal itu disampaikannya usai acara peresmian pembukaan konstruksi Indonesia 2019 di JI Expo Kemayoran, Jakarta, Rabu (6/11).

"Nanti pada akhir bulan ini akan ditemukan 3 gagasan besarnya. Setelah itu akan diolah lagi, akan lebih didetailkan dalam bentuk yang lebih, karena ini gagasan makro, akan dikecilkan jadi gagasan mikronya,” ujar Jokowi.

Pemindahan Ibukota ke Kalimantan Timur kata Jokowi, tidak sekadar pindah lokasi, namun pindah pola pikir dan sistem.

"Artinya sistem harus terinstal dengan baik, sehingga nanti orangnya yang masuk, birokrasi kita masuk, instal sistemnya sudah siap. Ketika ada pindah budaya kerja, harus berubah,” katanya.

Pemerintah telah menetapkan Penajam Paser Utara dan Kutai Kartanegara, Kalimantan Timur menjadi lokasi Ibukota baru. Masterplan pembangunan Ibukota baru ditargetkan akan rampung pada akhir 2020. Sementara untuk konstruksi fisik, Pemerintah menargetkan bisa selesai pada 2024.

Bappenas memperkirakan pemindahan Ibukota tersebut membutuhkan dana sebesar Rp 466 triliun.
Selain digunakan untuk pembangunan infrastruktur, anggaran tersebut juga untuk pembangunan manusia yang bertalenta dan berdaya saing tinggi melalui kolaborasi talenta dunia.

Ke depan Jokowi berharap ada talenta-talenta teknologi dan inovasi yang menilai kota baru tersebut sebagai kota masa depan.

"Sehingga kita harapkan talenta-talenta global juga mau hadir dan datang di situ untuk berkolaborasi dengan talenta-talenta kita,” tutupnya. [dzk]

Sekilas, mantan bek Madura United dan Persija Jakarta ini cukup hapal menyanyikan lagu Indonesia Raya. Meski dengan logat ala Brasil.

Meski kini telah resmi menyandang status WNI, Fabiano tetap tidak bisa dimainkan oleh Persib Bandung.

Karena batas pendaftaran pemain untuk putaran kedua Liga 1 2019 telah lama ditutup.

Fabiano baru bisa dimainkan Persib saat kompetisi musim depan sudah dimulai.

Pemprov Klaim Pengangguran Tinggi Akibat Pendatang

 Cache   
RMOLBANTEN. Mendapatkan predikat terbanyak jumlah penganggurannya, tak membuat Pemprov Banten kehilangan akal. Para pendatang dari berbagai luar provinsi diklaimnya penyebab utama kondisi sosial di tanah jawara ini.

Kepala Dinas Tenaga Kerja dan Transmigrasi (Disnakertrans) Banten Al Hamidi mengungkapkan, terdapat sejumlah penyebab yang mengakibatkan angka pengangguran menjadi tinggi. Salah satunya banyak kawasan industri yang memancing warga luar untuk mencari pekerjaan.

"Kalau melihat dari survei BPS jelas terkait dengan karena Banten ini tempat calon tenaga kerja untuk mengadu nasib," kata Hamidi, saat dihubungi melalui telepon genggamnya, Rabu (6/11).

Ia menjelaskan, terdapat dua gelombang membludaknya serbuan pendatang luar daerah ke Banten. Pertama, pasca lebaran dan kedua setelah tahapan kelulusan semua tingkat pendidikan. Jumlah pendatang yang masuk di dua gelombang itu bisa mencapai 7 hingga 10 persen dari jumlah penganggur.

"Adanya pelonjakan pencari kerja. Jadi banyaknya urbanisasi dari luar Banten itu mencari pekerjaan. Belum tentu semua itu terserap kan, menumpuk sehingga menjadi disangka pengangguran," terangnya.

Dari data yang dimiliki, para pendatang nyatanya mampu lebih dominan menyerap lapangan kerja. Dari total jiwa yang kini bekerja, 70 persennya merupakan warga luar Banten.

"Sekarang data yang kita lihat 1,5 juta lebih orang yang bekerja, kalau data BPS 1,6 juta lebih. Itu 70 persen dari luar Banten yang saat ini bekerja di Banten di sektor formal. Hampir seluruh (daerah asal pendatang) kalau di Banten, dari Jawa yang jelas itu, Jawa Timur dan Jawa Tengah," paparnya.

Disinggung apakah ada upaya agar warga lokal bisa lebih diutamakan agar bisa terserap lapangan kerja, Al Hamidi mengaku Pemprov Banten sudah melakukannya.

Hal itu ditandai dengan ditertibkannya Peraturan Gubernur (Pergub) Nomor 9 Tahun 2019. Dari produk hukum daerah itu perusahaan diwajibkan melapor ke pemerintah daerah jika ada lowongan kerja. Akan tetapi diakuinya, upaya itu juga belum efektif mengurangi angka pengangguran.

"Maksudnya supaya mengatur. Seandainya harus ada jatah 70 orang Banten, 30 persen orang luar kan tidak diatur juga dalam undang-undang, bahkan melanggar undanh-undang dasar yang sepeti itu. Sepanjang undang-undang tidak melarang orang bekerja dimana saja itu agak sulit," terang dia.

Dijelaskan Al Hamidi, tak optimalnya serapan tenaga kerja lokal Banten dikarenakan kejuruan sekolah tingkat atas belum sesuai dengan kebutuhan industri.

"Sebanyak 740 SMK di Banten kebanyakan (jurusan) bisnis perkantoran, kan itu mau ditempatkan dimana. Kalau misal kejuruan perkantoran dia mau ngantor dimana. Kalau bisnis, berbisnis dimana sehingga ada beberapa kejuruan yang tidak dapat ditampung. Yang jelas soal kejuruannya," ujarnya.

Ketika disinggung lagi soal percaloan tenaga kerja, pria berkumis tebal itu tak menampik juga memengaruhi angka pengangguran. Praktik itu juga yang menjadi penyebab kurang terserapnya tenaga kerja Banten dibanding luar daerah.

"Kalau untuk sementara tapi bisa saya pastikan. Hasil kita turun ke lapangan jadi ini salah satu faktor penyebabnya juga adalah percaloan. Jadi untuk masuk ke perusahaan itu dimintai duit. Kalau rata-rata di atas Rp 5 juta lah ya. Itu pidana kalau memang terjadi jadi ranahnya sudah kejahatan," katanya.

Sekda Banten Al Muktabar mengatakan, pihaknya saat ini sedang me-review atau mengulas aspek metodologi survei yang dilakukan oleh BPS.

Menurutnya, angka pengangguran erat kaitannya dengan angka kemiskinan. Dimana pengangguran bisa menimbulkan kemiskinan karena tak bekerja berarti tak memiliki penghasilan. Sementara, angka kemiskinan di Banten terus mengalami penurunan.

"Logikanya berpikir kerangka itu adalah bahwa pengangguran yang tinggi identik dengan kemiskinan yang tinggi. Dari pengangguran yang tinggi maka orang tidak punya penghasilan itu logikanya. Tapi faktanya kemiskinan menurun di Banten," tuturnya.

Sementara itu, Anggota DPRD Banten, Anda Suhanda mempertanyakan kebijakan dan peran serta pemerintah daerah dalam memberikan pelayanan bagi usia produksi dan memasuki dunia kerja. Pasalnya, terdapat ribuan industri, akan tetapi pengangguran di Banten sangat tinggi.

"Harus duduk bersama, dicarikan solusinya, kenapa industri dikita banyak, tapi pengangguran di Banten nomor satu terbanyak di Indonesia," tandasnya. [ars]

"Kalau mau hadiah. Jawab pertanyaannya saya," katanya.

Australia kata dia, merupakan salah satu negara yang multicultural. Masyarakat di Australia berasal dari 200 negara dan puluhan etnis.

"Hubungan Indonesia dengan Australia sudah terjalin sejak 150 tahun lalu. Sejarahnya, banyak suku bugis Indonesia banyak yg berdagang di Australia saat zaman penjajahan," ujarnya.

Dengan kegiatan ini, Natassia berharap hubungan Indonesia dengan Australia akan semakin erat.

"Kebudayaan Australia sudah bisa dikenalkan sejak dini merupakan langkah positif untuk mempererat hubungan Indonesia - Australia," terangnya.

Sementara Kepala MIN 3 Kota Tangsel Jetty Maynur mengatakan, kegiatan yang digelar pertama kalinya ini bekerjasama dengan kedutaan besar Australia.

Dengan pengenalan kebudayaan sejak dini diharapkan anak dapat menghormati sesama manusia meskipun berbeda agama dan ras.

"Event ini akan jadi agenda tahunan. Dan setiap tahunnya akan berbeda negara yang kita undang," terangnya.

Ditambahkan Kepala Kantor Kemenag Kota Tangsel Abdul Rojak, pentingnya pendidikan multikultural untuk menghargai perbedaan dan keragaman kepada siswa untuk membentuk jiwa toleran.

"Kita apresiasi kegiatan multicultural yang digelar MIN 3 Tangsel. Kedepannya pengenalan budaya agar lebih luas lagi," tandasnya. [ars]

          

Erwin Situmorang Pindah Tugas Jadi Kepala Bea Cukai Maluku

 Cache   
RMOLBANTEN. Erwin Situmorang yang sebelumnya menjabat Kepala Kantor Bea Cukai Bandara Soekarno-Hatta, dipindahtugaskan menjadi Kepala Kantor Bea Cukai Maluku sejak tanggal 1 November 2019.

Mengisi kekosongan sementara, Erwin digantikan pelaksana harian, Onny Yuar Hanantyoko.

Pelepasannya Erwin yang dilakukan Rabu (6/11) tadi di Kantor Bea Cukai Bandara Soekarno-Hatta. Pelepasan Erwin dibuka dengan tarian khas Sumatera Utara, tempat kelahiran Erwin dipadukan dengan tarian Khas Jakarta.

Erwin yang telah menjabat sejak Februari 2016 tersebut telah banyak melakukan penegahan berbagai barang ilegal hingga berbahaya masuk ke Indonesia.

Salah satunya, pecegahan 71.982 ekor lobster senilai Rp. 14,4 Milyar pada Februari 2018 yang diapresiasi langsung oleh Menteri Kelautan dan Perikanan, Susi Pudjiastuti dan Menteri Keuangan Sri Mulyani.

"Sering banget kita nangkep baby lobster, karena memang itu dilarang untuk diimpor ke luar negeri, tapi ternyata tau-tau besoknya kita nangkep lobster yang besar-besar," ujar Erwin saat memberi sambutan.

Tak hanya itu, dibawah kepemimpinannya, Bea Cukai Bandara Soekarno-Hatta kerap kali berhasil menggagalkan berbagai upaya penyelundupan narkotika berbagai jenis dengan modus yang bermacam-macam, mulai dari dimasukkan ke dalam dubur maupun vagina, hingga yang terakhir bermodus pengiriman sarang burung.

"Selama di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta, bersama Kombata (komunitas Bandara Soetta), kita terus bersinergi untuk mengamankan Bandara Soetta ini sesuai tugas dan fungsi masing-masing, saya sangat bangga, saya pimpinan Bea Cukai paling muda, tapi bisa ngasih masukan di institusi lain, Itulah kombata," tutur Erwin.

Ia berharap, apa yang sudah dirinya lakukan di Kantor Bea Cukai Bandara Soekarno-Hatta dapat bermanfaat untuk berbagai penegahan barang terlarang maupun ilegal yang ada di Bandara Soekarno-Hatta.

"Juga doakan saya agar ketika nanti bertugas di Kantor Bea Cukai Maluku dapat juga mengemban amanat dengan baik," tandasnya. [obi]
          

Jokowi Cerita Pencapaian Ekonomi Sampai Bisikan Bos IMF

 Cache   
RMOLBANTEN. Pada kuartal III 2019 ekonomi Indonesia tumbuh sebesar 5,02 persen, itu patut disyukuri. Pasalnya, di banyak negara mengalami resesi ekonomi sebagai imbas dari perlambatan perekonomian global.

Hal itu disampaikan Presiden Joko Widodo menilai ekonomi Indonesia dalam sambutannya di acara Indonesia Banking Expo 2019 di Fairmont Hotel, Jakarta, Rabu (6/11).

"Alhamdulillah sudah diberi angka 5 (persen), lebih dikit, enggak banyak, lebih dikit. Tapi sudah lebih dari 5 sudah bagus," ujar Presiden.

Presiden membandingkan dengan negara lain yang pertumbuhannya bahkan sudah mencapai angka minus atau negatif.

Di hadapan para pelaku industri keuangan yang hadir, Jokowi menegaskan bahwa capaian ekonomi Indonesia ini patut disyukuri.

"Negara lain ada yang sudah minus, ada yang menuju ke nol, ada yang berkurang ke 1 persen 2 persen. Ada yang anjlok di bawah 1. (Capaian) Ini patut kita syukuri," ucapnya.

Jokowi bercerita dirinya sudah diperingatkan langsung oleh Managing Director IMF, Kristalina Georgieva bahwa harus mengelola sektor moneter dan fiskal lebih hati-hati di tengah ancaman resesi dunia itu.

"Saya kemarin bertemu dengan Managing Director IMF yang baru, Kristalina, dia berikan sebuah warning, Presiden Jokowi hati-hati dalam kelola baik moneter atau fiskal. Hati-hati. Karena kondisinya seperti ini. Dunia pertumbuhannya hampir semuanya turun," kata Jokowim

Indonesia kata Jokoei merupakan negara yang besar, punya pasar yang besar dan potensinya besar.

Saat ini, posisi ekonomi Indonesia masih terus tumbuh dan bertahap menuju negara dengan ekonomi terbesar di dunia.

GDP Indonesia, jelas Jokowi, saat ini berada di angka US$1,1 triliun, dan berada di posisi 16 besar dunia. Purchasing Power Parity atau Keseimbangan Kemampuan Berbelanja sudah di ranking ke-7.

"Artinya kita ini besar, namun belum merasa besar. Banyak yang belum merasa besar," kata dia.

Walau begitu, Jokowi mengingatkan Indonesia tetap harus hati-hati dengan kondisi yang ada sekarang.

"Perang dagang, Brexit, negara-negara lain yang menuju ke resesi atau sudah berada pada posisi resesi," pungkasnya. [obi]

#PornBan. It’s like a rash, this impulse to ban porn all over the world – despite protests that are going viral. The Twitter hashtag #pornban sprung up in July 2015 as the Indian government blocked 857 porn sites, 1 and then backtracked a bit, 2 asking internet service providers (ISPs) to unblock those that don’t contain child pornography. Which makes service providers the arbiters of our constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of expression, deciding what we may or may not see. Seriously?

The United Kingdom recently banned a number of sex acts online, 3 including female ejaculation, even while there were almost 250,000 hits on porn sites from IP addresses in the buildings housing parliament. 4 The UK government is now asking porn sites to collect proof 5 that their visitors are adults. Will this data be stored privately and not used for other purposes? A valid question in an age of mass surveillance, hacks on “cheating” sites 6 and hacker releases of private information, including sexual preferences. 7

Iceland 8 has been threatening to ban “violent” online porn since 2013. Indonesia 9 and Turkey 10 have blocked lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) content in the name of banning porn. The Philippines 11 has outlawed cybersex and cam girls, while a religious lobby in Australia 12 is pushing for anti-piracy laws to be extended to porn. Porn possession is illegal in Botswana, 13 Egypt 14 and Uganda. 15 And even as the Israel-Palestine conflict escalated in 2012, Hamas managed to ban “full” internet porn in the Gaza Strip. 16 Whatever that means.

Porn. Panic. Ban. That’s pretty much the policy response in many parts of the world.

But what is it about porn that terrifies so many governments, derails feminist sensibilities, offends the religious right, and attracts so many users? How can we change the way we “see” porn?

***
Lesbian. Threesome. Squirt. Change the words and you change the lens. From the user’s perspective, porn leads to pleasure, not panic. That’s what porn has always been about, from ancient times, when it found its first mention in the word porneia. 17 This Greek word was varyingly defined as fornication, whoredom, promiscuity and adultery, all of which have two things in common: sex and pleasure. For most users, that’s what porn is really about: sexual pleasure. (Dirty, dirty.) Arousal. (Dirty, dirty.) Orgasm. (Dirty, dirty.) Problem is that in the parental gaze called policy, sex is kinda dirty. (Dirty, dirty.)

Problem is that in this global policy gaze, the sexual pleasure-seeker aka Porn User is always a man. Even though globally a quarter of porn viewers are women. 18 Make that 35% in Brazil and the Philippines, 24% in France, 23% in India and Argentina, and come on, Japanese women, you 17% laggards. 19 A 2015 survey of Pornhub and Redtube, 20 which gets 40 million viewers each month, shows that women like watching women. (And Kim Kardashian, James Deen, pussy-licking and rough sex.) “What immediately jumps out is that ladies prefer to take their time, with their average visits to the site lasting a lavish 10 minutes and 10 seconds, compared to men who go for just 9:22,” notes the cocky analysis. “Treat yourselves, ladies!”

So one gender gap is slowly closing as porn moves indoors from the publicness of peepshows and DVD parlours to the relative privacy of one’s own home. (We should be celebrating, not lamenting this “normalisation” of porn, no?) And don’t forget how notions of privacy shape behaviour here. No Peeping Toms. No looking over one’s shoulder. No idea of what we get off on so long as porn sites don’t start matching individual viewers to their viewing habits. Which means that even though “lesbian”, “threesome” and “squirt” are the top three terms that women searched for on Pornhub and RedTube in 2015, the data is anonymised and secure. (Hopefully.) No one’s going to land up at their doorsteps to blackmail them. (Hopefully.) They’re not going to be branded with the scarlet letter P, the digital equivalent of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s analog adulteress, 21 forced to wear the letter A in the 17th century.

Yes. Porn is becoming a bit of a Scarlet Letter – a private act portrayed as a public menace. Privacy is the right to be let alone, wrote Justices Warren and Brandeis of the United States (US) Supreme Court in their iconic 1890 essay. 22 That too was in a context when new media technologies – “instantaneous photographs”, “newspaper enterprises”, “mechanical devices” – were producing panic. Technological change has, of course, always given rise to panic: even the sewing machine was once thought to create deviant desires in women, as they rhythmically moved their legs up and down to its gentle whirr. And women, of course, have always been subjected to moral panics and moralistic privacy 23 when it comes to sexuality, notes law professor Anita L. Allen. One that is associated with “heightened modesty”, self-concealment, and chastity. (Don’t show yourself. Don’t watch other women. In short, no pornification.) Porn’s genteel cousin, erotica, has also faced similar panics. Remember the ban on D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover 24 in the 1960s?

Problem is, in the policy gaze, women are still stuck in the passenger seat when it comes to sex. It imagines the hubby coming home, all pumped up, and asking the missus to go beyond the missionary position. Just like he saw on his iPad mini. (Dirty, dirty.) You see? Man, driver. Woman, passenger. From the first utterance of porneia, men have been seen as the drivers of sex, women its passengers. Never mind that this is rooted in another P – Patriarchy – which insists that women must have no sexual desire, let alone know pleasure-enhancing postures. (Dirty, dirty). Never mind that many women still can’t refuse men sex, or get them to wear condoms. Never mind every inequality between men and women that pops up everywhere, including in the bedroom. If there was greater equality between the genders, fewer women would feign headaches when they don't want to have sex.

That’s gender inequality. That’s what we need to fix. But it’s so much easier to blame porn for patriarchy, no?

***
Multi-million. Dollar. Industry. This is how anti-porn crusaders often refer to porn. It’s a magic bullet, this phrase, guaranteed to derail logic. Guaranteed to make folks see red. As if we’re not doing all sorts of things like buying biscuits and Maggi noodles and data connections from multi-million dollar enterprises.

Of course we’re all proponents of the small, the stand-alone, the artisanal. But. Can porn be damned just because it’s big business? Let’s stop eating Glucose biscuits first. And must we start loving all independent 25 or homemade porn, right from consenting cam girls to non-consensual hidden cam porn in cyber cafés? Nah. Like in other industries, porn production is “ethical”, when there are no unfair or exploitative contractual or labour practices. When performers are not being pushed to perform sex acts beyond the contract or without condoms. But that’s not enough. Porn is legit, first and foremost, if it’s based on consent. And consent cuts all the way down the line: from those who are paid to perform porn to those who freely turn their images into porn for private pleasure. That some of these images end up as non-consensual porn – often called revenge porn – is a problem that policy makers in some countries have finally begun to tackle, notably in the US where revenge porn is a crime in several states. 26

But try asking anti-porn campaigners to use consent as a yardstick. No. In the anti-porn worldview, ALL porn causes harm to ALL women: those who consume it and those who don’t. All porn objectifies and dehumanises women, never mind women who have starred as “personified” subjects! In this camp, there’s only one kind of porn – in which men treat women as instruments to satisfy their sexual desires. In which porn is the villain with a capital P, mutating “healthy” sexual desires and relationships into “unhealthy” ones. 27 It’s never about mutual pleasure or that there are as many kinds of porn as there are sexual desires. Including queer crip porn. 28 It’s rarely about porn performers who don’t see themselves as victims. Or the issues porn performers themselves raise. “My stage name is less about withholding parts of myself or maintaining privacy than it is a symbol of the idea that I am more than just my job or any other isolated slice of my identity,” says US porn performer, Stoya. 29 “Yes, there’s a paradox here in that I willingly engage in work that reduces me to a few sexual facets of myself but expect to be seen as a multifaceted person outside of that work. I participate in an illusion of easy physical access…”

If objectification is the charge that some feminists typically hurl at porn, addiction is its moralist cousin. In the digital porn discourse, access is often vilified as “addiction” with untold consequences. Portrayed as a drug. A petitioner to India's parliament argues that online porn must be banned before we turn into the equivalent of “Motherless or Fatherless America”. 30 This trend is “related to those ‘orphaned’ children, whose father or mother, though alive, are addicted to cyberpornography and don’t take any care of their children or the family,” the petitioner argues. Another #pornban petitioner in India's Supreme Court raises this bombast to untold heights. 31 “Nothing can more efficiently destroy a person, fizzle their mind, evaporate their future, eliminate their potential or destroy society like pornography,” he argues. “It is so terrible that many do not even recognize it until it is too late, and most refuse to admit it. It is worse than Hitler, worse than AIDS, cancer or any other epidemic. It is more catastrophic than nuclear holocaust, and it must be stopped.”

This #pornban petition goes on to hold online pornography accountable for increasing violence against women, an emotive charge (like “multi-million dollar industry”) that unites moralists and many feminists. Does porn cause rape? Or, as feminist Robin Morgan famously argued in the 1970s, is “porn the theory, rape the practice”? 32 No. Even those who campaign against porn warily agree there’s no evidence to back this charge. 33 In the 1990s, one research study looked at four countries where porn was freely available in the previous two decades, including “aggressive porn”. 34 In all four countries, the availability of pictorial porn – including violent porn – had gone from “extreme scarcity to relative abundance” in the study period. It noted that other studies have shown that “rapists' and nonrapists' immediate sexual reactions to presentations of pornography showed generally greater arousal to non-violent scenes.” It concluded that in none of the countries did “rape increase more than nonsexual violent crimes. This finding in itself would seem sufficient to discard the hypothesis that pornography causes rape.” 35

Disregarding such evidence, anti-porn feminists continue to insist that porn is an act of sexual violence, that porn is not “words” and “images”, that porn is not speech to be protected. 36 Not media. This positioning is, of course, part of the problem, since it exceptionalises porn, locating it in a category by itself, unlike other speech or media. But seriously, what is porn – composed of words, sounds and images, albeit of naked bodies – if not media? Innumerable studies indicate that there is no causal relationship between media representations and realities, that spectators hold diverse and different positions to what they view. 37 Do we hold on-screen rape depictions in feature films responsible for causing actual rapes? No. Do we hold on-screen depictions of murder responsible for causing actual murders? No. Then why hold on-screen porn responsible for real-life rape and sexual assault? Why blame the representation for the reality in this one case alone? What’s so unique about porn – another media representation – that it must be singled out thus? Are naked bodies inherently harmful? Or what?

***
In a 2009 TED talk that went viral, Cindy Gallop, a 50-something fan of hardcore porn, described how she sees online porn. 38 “I have sex with younger men…” in their 20s, she says, “and encounter directly the effect of a flood of hardcore porn.” One of these effects is the misbelief that women love men coming on their faces, a porn staple. “There’s an entire generation growing up that believes that what you see in hardcore pornography is the way that you have sex,” says Gallop. “Hardcore porn has become sex education.” But why has hardcore porn become sex education? One, because it’s easily available. Two, because there’s no other sex education. Three, because we’re so puritanical about sex, we won’t talk about it to our kids. Ergo, vacuum. Enter, online porn. As a “mature experienced self-confident older woman,” Gallop is adept at telling her 20-something lovers: “No, thank you very much. I’d rather you did not come on my face.”

As a user, how would Gallop change porn? “Reorient, reeducate, rehabilitate” is her motto. In other words, resocialise minds, reshape headspaces, rewire neutrons away from the dungheap of patriarchy. Towards a more equitable gender-friendly porn. Sounds like sex-positive feminism to me. Her site 39 busts a bunch of porn myths including balloon boobs, while understanding that porn is play, a pleasure-enhancer, like sex toys. A form of sexual expression. In another TED talk that went viral, erotic filmmaker Erika Lust talks about how it’s time for porn to change. 40 Change. Not vanish. How it’s time to fight unethical porn with ethical porn, counter-porn, porn that makes women and transpersons 41 the subjects of their sexual journeys, pleasures and destinations.

That’s right. Change porn, not ban it. Think about it. Seriously. Think how we try to change other media representations – through critique, debate, dialogue and alternative representations. Not through bans, right? If policy makers understood porn as sexual expression, why would they want to ban it?

***
So what should we really think about when we think about porn? Consent. We need to respect the consent of those who enact porn – if it’s given, even to enacting “rape porn”, dare we cavil? And we need to start getting justice for those who never dreamed they’d end up as digital porn – without their consent. Any image that turns into porn without consent can cause actual harm, not the imaginary variety – harm that wrecks lives, jobs, careers, relationships, self-image and identities. Harm that causes real damage, both on and offline. Harm that is harmful enough to be called out and punished as a crime. When actual rapes turn into digital porn, spreading from phone to phone, as is the case in Pakistan and India, that’s harm. And that’s three counts of consent being violated: one, in forcing sex without consent; two, in filming forced sex without consent; three, in circulating this clip without consent. When physical rape turns into digital porn we know one thing for sure: it’s time to start talking consent. It’s time to start talking harm.

If we really want to “do something” about porn, it’s time we stopped talking about its imagined harms. It’s time we started talking about actual harms. It’s time we started talking along the fault lines of consent.

Introduction

This report is framed as a challenge to the dominant discourse on children online – a discourse that characterises children in online spaces as vulnerable victims rather than people with agency and risk-management capacity. The current discourse on child victimisation draws from 21st century human trafficking policy, which has generally taken an enforcement- and prosecution-driven approach to problems of exploitation. Global agendas against child exploitation have predominantly replicated anti-trafficking discourse, making assumptions about violence, risk and vulnerability online.

In this report, I will describe the dominant discourse on children online as one of victimisation, and then describe three common digital methods being used against child exploitation: text detection, image detection, and online sting operations. I argue that the discourse of victimisation does not actually uphold victim rights, and that in fact many predominant anti-exploitation methods threaten the privacy rights and sexuality rights of young people. Rights to privacy are in jeopardy as the dominant anti-exploitation approach relies on state enforcement and policing, following in the footsteps of older surveillance techniques by monitoring citizens’ internet behaviour and increasing government regulation of online traffic. Additionally, the sexuality rights of young people, while perhaps a controversial subject, are also fundamentally threatened by a dominant discourse that positions all children as victims and does not recognise the sexual agency of young people. Under the supposed goal of safety, many anti-exploitation measures by states have veered toward censorship, limiting young people’s access to all forms of sexual content online, including sexual identity, sexuality and reproductive health resources.

Recognising that problems of violence, sexual exploitation, misogyny and harassment online are very real, I conclude by imagining what a more feminist and sustainable approach to address these issues might look like. Dominant anti-exploitation efforts centralise technocratic expertise in the hands of states and large technology companies. I suggest an alternative approach that uses participatory ethnographic research and youth input to influence technology design that honours young people’s lived experiences and supports their already ongoing practices of risk management.

The dominant discourse of victimisation

Who gets to be a victim? Are children automatically assumed to be victims by dominant legislative agendas? Which children, and where? Such questions help us understand and critique the current global discourse on child exploitation and victimisation, which takes its cues from the soaring rise in attention to “trafficking” in the past few decades. Much of the language and ideology of the current anti-trafficking movement is rooted in the drafting process for what would become the UN protocol on human trafficking. Human trafficking is defined under the 2000 United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish the Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children as “the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception (…),” and expressly prohibits the trafficking of children for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation. 1 Feminist scholars 2 have noted that the protocol drafting process brought together a peculiar constellation of religious advocates, anti-prostitution feminist activists, bureaucrats, and law enforcement; the rubrics under which they found common agreement have resonance for current child exploitation policy. It is telling that the UN protocol on trafficking, one that had been suggested and discussed for years in various UN agencies, was eventually pushed through by the agency handling transnational drugs and crime control.

Perhaps the most striking point for agreement between these disparate advocacy groups is a shared ideology of punishment for trafficking as a crime. Bernstein 3 argues that, in constructing legislation for the criminalisation of trafficking, a conservative Christian sense of penalty and retribution met a second-wave feminist aim to prosecute perpetrators of sexual violence and exploitation of women and girls. This shared ideology of “carceral feminism” advocates for state- and law enforcement-based solutions for addressing crimes of interpersonal violence and exploitation, and glosses over how many marginalised people are in fact often subjected to violence at the hands of the state itself, through structures of policing, environmental law, and economic policy. This point on structural violence and state violence is replicated, I argue, with online policies as well.

Many countries have used the protocol to model their own laws on trafficking, forced migration, labour exploitation and sexual exploitation, including vague definitions of “trafficking victim”, consent and migration. The United States' (US) domestic commitment, especially, to carceral paradigms of justice has expanded into similar policies abroad with state-based interventions into cases of trafficking, through practices of what Bernstein⁠ calls “militarized humanitarianism” – the US financing of enforcement-heavy policing and raids of brothels, settlements and urban spaces where cases of exploitation and trafficking have been purported. This point is perhaps best exemplified by the US State Department’s Trafficking In Persons Report, a country-by-country ranking of the US’s assessment of governmental efforts to prevent and prosecute trafficking. As Pardis Mahdavi notes, lower rankings correspond to sanctions or reductions in foreign aid.4 Additionally, “anti-trafficking” has become a hugely marketable and profitable awareness campaign for numerous activist groups, which use the images and metaphor of “modern-day slavery” to generate millions of dollars in foreign aid and donations. I argue, along with other feminist scholars, 5 that this new “abolitionist” movement has become another rationale for the neo-imperialist rescue of people in the global South, especially those identified as “prostitutes”, replicating a pattern of humanitarian intervention that has frequently been critiqued by post-colonial activists. The UN protocol title, for example, explicitly calls attention to “Especially Women and Children”, a phrasing that feminist activists have criticised as contributing to the assumption of the feminising of victimhood and the masculinising of rescue. Agustín 6 suggests that the specific focus on sex trafficking (as opposed to, for example, issues of education, poverty or environmental justice) in global South countries has produced its own veritable “rescue industry” of professionalised humanitarians, journalists, bureaucrats and corporate representatives seeking to stake their claim on anti-trafficking turf. Children’s charities, especially, many of which have been working on issues of youth education, nutrition, sexual health and child labour for decades, have begun switching their primary focus to trafficking and exploitation as a signal of their commitment to this latest humanitarian agenda.

Digital strategies against child exploitation

Additionally, most trafficking and exploitation policies do not explicitly deal with technology, and in this current moment software development far outpaces legislative policy. Abuses offline have their parallels online, and children’s advocacy organisations have taken to digital methods for finding and preventing child exploitation, including digital forensics, biometric software, and image detection technologies. In recent years, an unprecedented level of alliances have been forged between technology companies, researchers, activists and law enforcement strategising to detect cyber crime and to collect digital data as evidence. In addition, we have seen a rise in cross-border police partnerships, as virtual crimes often implicate multiple countries or anonymous locations in law enforcement attempts to locate victims, abusers and downloaders alike.

Three strategies for countering trafficking and exploitation online that I would like to highlight are:

Text and financial transaction detection:

    Data mining algorithms are designed and used in criminal investigations to rapidly search large databases. Text analysis can assist with analysing language patterns in online advertisements, for example to detect advertisements suggesting the offer of sexual services by under-age minors. Text detection can also assist police working with social media companies on existing investigations, to trawl through data for key phrases, dates and locations; and with financial transaction analysis, detecting potentially fraudulent transactions, as well as other indicators that may serve as evidence for prosecutions.

Image and video detection:

  • Image analysis – the detection, filtering, categorisation and recognition of digital photos – is a common tool in conducting anti-exploitation cases. Digital forensics tools automate the process of searching through photo data collected from computers and hard drives confiscated by police during investigations. Interpol manages the International Child Sexual Exploitation image database, 7 which can be used for image-matching with photos of missing children, victims, abusers and geographic locales. Other technologies can determine if images have been digitally altered or tampered with – for instance, converting an innocent image of a child edited into sexually explicit content. Image analysis can also identify images from surveillance systems.

Digital sting operations:

  • In the US, as well as other countries, undercover law enforcement “stings” have long been used to entrap potential child exploiters. However, in many parts of the world, stings are unlawful, and the data produced by sting operations are considered null evidence in courts. Recently, NGO Terre Des Hommes, based in the Netherlands, took the unprecedented step of designing a photo-realistic video avatar of a child to conduct video chats with potential exploiters on chat room sites. Dubbing the operation “Project Sweetie” 8,
  • the NGO claimed that over six months they collected the names and emails of 1,000 people who solicited the avatar. The campaign has been controversially received, with some lauding it as the innovative next step in preventing sexual exploitation of young people, and others raising alarms over privacy infringement issues.

Rights to privacy

My concern with these digital methods’ infringements on privacy rights echoes the protests by groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Electronic Frontier Foundation, 9 on the grounds of protecting free speech online and protecting online identities. Many of the innovative techniques that law enforcement must use for thorough digital investigations involve biometric surveillance and identification techniques on proprietary websites. Personal privacy online can be absolutely critical for political dissidents and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) activists, for example, seeking anonymity to avoid discrimination, harassment or punishment from repressive governments. These groups may see the denial of privacy as a form of political control, and use encrypted websites and email and other darkweb technologies for their own personal safety.

In addition, current digital strategies echo the dominant discourse on victimisation by failing to acknowledge and uphold children’s rights. Many have argued that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child applies to the internet space: children “shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds.”10 Unfortunately, in the name of child safety, internet governance legislation and advocates in many countries have chosen to move in the direction of censoring children’s access to social media. While online censorship models vary between countries (e.g. the censorship of “adult pornography” websites where illegal), sometimes censorship may veer too far and limit children’s access to educational and communication sites.

Sexuality rights

Concerns over privacy rights and surveillance have strong implications for the upholding of sexual rights. As many ethnographic studies have demonstrated, young people already constantly experiment with new internet platforms for expressing sexuality and desire and conducting relationships. To deny these cultural practices in internet safety education is to deny the reality of healthy youth sexuality and forces sexual practices to become more “invisible” and out of the oversight of guardian communities. Heather Horst 11 describes how both US youth in the Digital Youth Project, 12 for example, and Indonesian teenagers in Barendregt 13 and Boellstorff’s 14 research, experimented and played with their online profile photos and identities in ways that they deemed sexy for their intended audiences, but expressed surprise and bewilderment that these photos could be accessed by people outside their peer groups. Horst indicates that what would be needed in these contexts would be greater education around privacy settings and filters so that youth can better conceptualise that internet sites are potentially permanent and accessible by multiple publics.

Rather than filter and block all content related to sex, sexuality and sexual interactions, internet safety measures must encourage age-appropriate explorations of sexuality for teenaged youth. Especially in countries where state policies limit access to resources and public spaces for LGBT youth, it is imperative that young people have access to digital chat rooms, forums and sites that ensure their safety, community building, and interpersonal growth. Research studies by both Hasinoff 15 and Gray 16 illustrate the perils of sexually repressive policies seeping into moral panics that limit the networking and relationship-building of marginalised youth. A victimisation model furthers the policing of youth sexuality, as young people are literally punished and criminalised for the distribution of sexually suggestive images. Panics over “sexting” stem from long-standing moral panics over youth sexuality – online or offline – and further the false narrative that young people are innocent, always already victims. A protective model is unsustainable, and ultimately furthers a culture of policing and repression.

Conclusion: Feminist technology design and resisting techno-panics

I am intrigued by the rapid and unprecedented rise in global alliances between law enforcement agencies and technology companies, as well as the forging of cross-border police partnerships, to design cyber crime detection software and to share data. But I am deeply concerned that the current model for anti-trafficking design centres technocratic expertise in the hands of wealthy states and multinational tech companies, at the exclusion of grassroots-level NGOs, activists and youth who have long been organising on issues of exploitation.

A feminist approach means moving toward youth-centric technologies that recognise different forms of expertise in producing sustainable models of safety. For example, Streetwise and Safe’s pathbreaking research report 17 on youth engaged in the sex trades provides deeply nuanced insight into young people’s own experiences with safety, consent, victimisation, empowerment and the police. The report is an exemplary resource for a feminist anti-trafficking technology able to recognise young people’s ongoing negotiations of risk and safety. The approach would use this knowledge to create technologies that can more sustainably and accurately – and powerfully – end abuse and exploitation.

A feminist design approach values all relevant forms of expertise and input in understanding what “sex trafficking” and “technology” mean in the lived experiences of young people; child protection services; sex workers aiming to end exploitation without punishing prostitution itself; survivors of trafficking, forced migration and human smuggling; and advocates for free speech and network neutrality and against censorship. A feminist design approach, emphasising harm reduction rather than policing, would be more effective because it takes into account the forms of structural violence – global poverty, rape culture, racism, labour exploitation, restrictive and dangerous immigration policies – that make online child exploitation and trafficking a reality in the first place.

The common narrative spun by many children’s advocacy organisations about child exploitation online frames the internet as a space of risk, vulnerability, harm and entrapment. The narrative usually goes like this: exploiters can use various digital platforms to locate, communicate with and groom victims; send text messages and email to conduct their affairs; use various financial transaction sites to conduct monetary exchanges; and trade and distribute photos and videos of trafficked or exploited victims. Such a narrative frames young people as the passive recipients of harm, rather than active agents who already engage in risk mitigation and rely on each other for support networks online. I urge child safety specialists to think through online safety in a pragmatic manner that respects the vast benefits and opportunities of internet connectivity and to avoid “techno-panics” by focusing instead on harm-reduction approaches to youth safety. Many global feminist internet activists have organised against misogynistic, homophobic and racist harassment online; government interpretations of these issues could certainly take note from this legacy of grassroots organising in addressing sexual exploitation and violence in the digital space. In a sense, online sex trafficking and exploitation only magnify existing structural violence and social inequities: Sustainable problem solving therefore means resisting a “quick-fix” technological solution to a problem that is so much more than digital.

The democratisation of authority in the Middle East and North Africa

The recent revolution in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region known as the Arab Spring could not have happened in the way that we know it without the internet and the powerful new forms of social media. Organisers of major protest rallies used social media to pull them together. Eventually their efforts led to toppling long-term tyrannical leaders and a push for more democratic reforms. It was first and foremost through social media that many of us outside of the MENA region got our most enduring images of those protests. The Arab Spring caught standard news agencies off guard. Even policy makers in the West would second-guess whether it was a real revolution or not. It was.

I dare say: the Arab Spring will go down in history as the first of its kind – a revolution that owes more to the internet, including social media, than any before it. Through social media we also caught in full view the grotesque acts of sexual harassment and exploitation of mainly female protesters, both by juntas of the military in Egypt and other pro-government forces, as well as by the usual chauvinist opportunists. So social media brings us the good and the bad, often with little or no censor. Certainly all governments seek to control the tide of information projected in these media, from different degrees of censoring certain images through maturity rating, to “security” issues, even as far as attempts to completely block access.

Technical details about the internet and social media are not my area of expertise. In fact, I can scarcely keep up the content of my web page.1 So let me locate myself in this topic. I am a 62-year-old, retired humanities professor – not the most likely social media geek. I manage a modest amount of social media – a personal page and a public figure page on Facebook, 2 a Twitter account, 3 and recently I’ve ventured onto Instagram. So this is not about my spectacular personal presence on social media.

I built my academic reputation upon the nuances of language, linguistics, rhetoric and hermeneutics. In my line of work, words matter; and that’s NOT just word count. What makes me a perfect Ph.D. also makes me a not-so-exciting Twitter personality. Most of what I do requires more than 140 characters. I’m too long-winded for the fast pace of social media. However, in the past five years I have come to appreciate its merits and impact in my areas of interest: Islam, justice and gender (that’s what my Twitter avatar says, coincidentally).

I took up social activism more than a quarter of a century ago, because I could see that good ideas or theory needed to be made into policy in order to really benefit those who have experienced oppression due to narrow interpretations of texts. It took time before I felt I should keep up with social media; but clearly it makes a difference – not just in revolutions, like the Arab Spring and Black Lives Matter,4 but also in everyday transformations for users. With access to the internet, anyone can harness its power – from crowd funding independent projects, to movement building towards equality and justice in the Muslim family like www.Musawah.org. 5

Using social media allows all sides to have equal access. While active social media can challenge the odds over exertions of power and authority in Islam, as it stands, neo-conservatism and patriarchy still seem to have the most say. With the rise of violent extremist groups like the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) we can see how effective use of social media evens out the playing field – between the good and the bad. In the context of Islam and issues of social justice, one of the most important questions of our time centres on who has the power to assert their definition of “Islam” to control the lives of others, be it the rule of law, cultural pressure, or even spiritual manipulation.

Everything I do – and therefore everything I do on social media – engages the intersection of systems of oppression. Although my focus is mostly on Islamic thought and praxis, I engage in the discourse over all matters that impact the deep and enduring experience of justice. Therefore, I reflect on power exploitations or coercion, on the logistics of asymmetrical relationships, and on social, political, racial, economic, spiritual and cultural hegemonies over race, class, gender, sexuality, ablism and the environment. (I did say I was long-winded, right?) On any one day I may tweet, retweet, post, or re-post about each one of these intersecting factors. I’ve also blogged on several sites related to these issues.

I am interested in Islamic reformation, by which I mean radically rethinking and critical engagement with the Ultimate Sacred sources of Islamic thought and practice – from its sacred text, its Prophet Muhammad (upon him be peace) and the vast and variegated intellectual history for more than 14 centuries. While I believe Islamic intellectual history is still evolving, the need for a reformation considers the current realities as pivotal to achieving the over-arching principles of Islam: justice, peace and human dignity.

This reformation includes Islamic feminism.

In particular, I propose that the construction of new knowledge in Islamic thought must be ongoing. In Islamic feminism this started with one simple and yet strategic question: What is the role of gender in this discourse? For several centuries after the advent of Islam this idea of “reading for gender” did not exist. Of course people lived and functioned in certain culturally constructed and time-specific gender roles. However, few would reflect critically upon the implications of these roles relative to the ultimate objectives of Islam.

This was due in part to the many radical changes in the lives of women integral to Islam’s beginning, like granting women the right to own property, the right to education, the right for marriage choices and for divorce, a share of inheritance, and a role as credible witness. Alas, the trajectory was not sustained, with great loss to women’s agency and intellectual contributions as early as one century after the Prophet. Meanwhile other trends went unchallenged, like what it means to be human and gendered, including certain unnecessary binaries, ascribing certain roles exclusively to men and re-inscribing male privilege – since patriarchy was pervasive, and not just amongst Muslims.

Islam is a religion focused on “right practices”6 and these are encoded into elaborate legal formulas. Over time certain functionary asymmetrical gender roles would be encoded in the law as if they genuinely reflected the spiritual, philosophical and theological objectives of Islam. When a faith system is dependent upon this interchange between praxis and orthodoxy, it may take some time to unravel which came first: the praxis or the ideology. Over time unexamined gender roles become conflated with ideas about the “natural order” or are seen as a divine mandate. It is a simple logic, really: for example, if women do almost all the caretaking, that must mean women are “natural” caretakers and men are exempt, although this role is vital to human existence and to the environment.

In theory, both men and women were encouraged to participate in Islam’s intellectual development and there are historical examples of women as intellectual contributors. However, they did not play a major role in establishing the basic paradigms of Islamic practice and world view. So when right behaviour became encoded in the law, women’s experiences or women’s ways of knowing and believing would be filtered through the lens of male commentators, philosophers, theologian and jurists.

In our time, we interrogate the ways in which patriarchal norms and biases controlled women’s behaviour by collapsing the link between men’s ways of knowing and believing with the natural or divine order. Whatever men thought was soon equated with what God/Allah thought. All faith paradigms are constructs. When they are constructed only or primarily on the basis of what men experience or perceive, and the connection to these sacred ideas and their human origin is forgotten, then male bias creates notions of authority linked to those constructs as though actually authorised by God. So what men think becomes what God thinks; and the only legitimate way to practise Islam.

While there have always been a few who question the (il)logic of patriarchy, in the 21st century we have reached a critical mass. In every country, every city, every town, every group – no matter how small – Muslim women are questioning what it means to be full agents of our own lives, contrary to patriarchal assertions. We have looked at the consequences of patriarchal interpretations on what it means to be Muslim. Now we are facing an epistemological crisis, where certain ideas – once held sacred and integral to Islam as a universal faith system – are shown to be merely inflections of time-specific, place-specific and gender-specific logic; not sacred at all. Furthermore, certain constructs are no longer tenable or sustainable given the realities of the world we now live in.

This is part of the comprehensive change formulated and projected under a new wave of Islamic feminism. My early work on the Qur’an, Islam’s sacred text, forms one of the cornerstones to these challenges. It centres on one simple question: Does it make a difference if the person reading the text identifies as a man or as a woman? The answer was yes. Reading is always impacted by location, including gender identification. Yet, until this last century, we had no record of women’s responses to the text and no formal exegesis. We know that women read, memorised, recited and used the text as part of their general belief and practice, but we can find no written record of what they thought about its meanings. Meanwhile during that same history men left elaborate exegesis using multiple methods of interpretation.

Reading for gender affects questions of authority in laws made from the perspective of textual interpreters. Now Muslim women have reached a critical mass seeking change. We are diverse and not always mutually supportive in our methods, but despite inner contestation we all demand justice. This critical mass is due largely to a general rise in levels of education. However, there is also a clear link to new forms of communication due to the internet and social media allowing for a dissemination of ideas as sought after by the better-educated populist. This flow of ideas is untainted by constraints of particular institutions, or institutional requirements, and free of patriarchal control.

Knowledge is power. The more ways people have equal access to information, the more they are able to construct informed opinions about any matter. The more pervasive information is, the less control the old-guard authorities will have over the masses. The flow of information in the media is second only to the increased levels of education for all, allowing women, men and children to construct change, challenge injustice and form new trends in authority, more democratic ones. Although we still have a long way to go – considering that access is not nearly equal or universal – at least we see the unfolding of what I call the democratisation of authority. The internet is an important tool for change. It increases access to knowledge and contributes to meaningful exchange in knowledge.

In the particular context of Muslims, the internet gives voice to those who were previously unrepresented and silenced. In the context of gender constructions, and Muslim women’s lived realities, sometimes actual physical mobility is still limited by cultural and legal constraints. However, access to the internet can thwart this lack of mobility, bringing women out of the confines of patriarchal control.

Even if only from the privacy of their homes, Muslim women can venture all over the world, form alliances, support each others’ work, and gain greater insights into the limitlessness of possibilities. Once they get to that world, they can have their say. Once they have their say, they can have an impact. Once they have an impact, they become agents of change.

Exposure to the vast diversity of ideas and ideals across the planet gives greater clarity over the assertions that there is only one way to do things, one “true” Islam – the patriarchal one. For example, in working with www.Musawah.org we use online resources to expose the ways that Muslim Personal Status Law varies from country to country. So if believing Muslims in Jordan do something totally different from what believing Muslims do in Indonesia over the same matter, then clearly the laws are not divine but completely human-made. Since Muslim women are human, we can construct new laws, advocate for reform in existing laws, and challenge those laws imbued with patriarchy to reach more egalitarian policies, laws and experiences. When this diversity is observed through facts presented, it is impossible to say, “This is God’s law and you cannot do anything about it, if you are a believer” – a tactic too often used to silence women’s justice movements.

Another merit of the internet is raising the equality of voices. No one voice is above another voice. This is a great equaliser: no matter how insignificant one internet user may be in the scheme of things, his or her voice can become well known, widespread and persuasive. All that is needed is to have a message that gains momentum through social media. Inadvertently this increases the space for diversity. The argument itself becomes the measure – not the clout of the one speaking. Didn’t the Arab Spring bring down tyrannical rulers? Social media gives greater importance to voices that might have gone unrecognised.

While the internet is a powerful equalising tool, allowing ALL voices to speak, creating forums for people to meet across the globe and share concerns, there are certain challenges to it as well.

I use social media because I agree with its powerful potential for liberation, justice and equality. Since my primary interest is in gender, of course this means I have to discuss issues about sex and sexuality. These seem to gain the most attention when I post. Meanwhile, among the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims, honest and open conversation about sex and sexuality is still primarily missing – despite our sex-affirmative intellectual legacy. For example, in Islam there is no particular virtue in or privileging of celibacy. Details of sexual pleasure have long been celebrated and elaborated. Medical research was so advanced that Muslim doctors were among the first to approve and perform sex-change operations, indicating a deep understanding of sexual diversity. Today’s Muslim cultures have a tendency towards prudishness, silence and shame. Because of this, many conversations I initiate about sex and sexuality receive the greatest negative reactions.

For example, people feel free to question the level of my personal faith because I am open about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) issues. The tactic is almost always the same: they assert their homophobia and THEN project that I am NOT a Muslim and could not possibly be a scholar because I do not share their interpretations of certain verses in the Qur’an that talk about the story of Lot. Since ALL passages of the Qur’an are subject to multiple interpretations, as part of the rich legacy of Islamic thought and textual analysis, why the literal reading of any one verse should hold sway over another reading is a matter of power, politics and public pressure. This pressure is rampant in social media.

My observations about social media, Islam and sexuality indicate how social media is an indispensable tool. So while I have every intention of keeping up my use of it, I will never have the following of even some untalented Hollywood or Bollywood personalities. That’s okay by me. Instead, I recommend for everyone a balance between the utility of the medium and the random harassment it might bring.

Dalam melaksanakan aktifitasnya melakukan fungsi pengawasan ke kapal kapal, tidak ada kaitannya dengan kondisi politik suatu negara. 

PSC selalu mengacu pada instrumen yang jelas sebagai dasar dalam melakukan inspeksi, Instrumen tersebut adalah :

− Konvensi Internasional tentang Load Lines, 1966;

− Protocol of 1988 kaitannya dengan Konvensi Internasional tentang LoadLines, 1966, dan amandemennya;

− Konvensi Internasional for Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, dan Amandemennya;

− Protocol of 1978 kaitannya dengan Konvensi Internasional for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974;

− Protocol of 1988 kaitannya dengan Konvensi Internasional for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974;

− Konvensi Internasional for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships 1973, dimodifikasi oleh Protocol of 1978 yang berkaitan dengannya, dan amandemennya;

− Konvensi Internasional tentang Standards for Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers,
1978, dan Amandemennya;

− Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972;

− Konvensi Internasional tentang Tonnage Measurement of Ships, 1969;

− Merchant Shipping (Minimum Standards) Convention, 1976 (ILO Convention No. 147);

− Maritime Labour Convention, 2006;

− Konvensi Internasional tentang Control of Harmful Anti-fouling Systems on Ships, 2001;

− Protocol of 1992 to amend the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage, 1969;

− Konvensi Internasional untuk Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments, 2004.


Dari SUMMARY OF PORT STATE INSPECTION DATA 2016 – 2018, tercatat bahwa dari 659 kapal berbendera Indonesia yang di inspeksi oleh Port State, 58 diantaranya ditahan oleh port state / Detention. Excess factor sebesar 1.3 %. 

Sehingga Annual Report on Port State Control in the Asia-Pacific Region 2018 yang diterbitkan oleh TOKYO MOU, telah menempatkan Indonesia dalam kategori BLACK LIST, kalah jauh dibandingkan dengan negara tetangga kita Malaysia, dari 571 kapal berbendera Malaysia yang di inspeksi oleh Port state, hanya 14 kapal yang ditahan oleh Port State, dengan Excess factor sebesar minus 1.05 % telah menempatkan Malaysia dalam kategori Whitelist, sementara itu Indonesia dengan sangat agresif berwacana ingin menjadi POROS MARITIM DUNIA.


Sungguh miris, bagaimana mungkin Indonesia menjadi POROS MARITIM DUNIA apabila Indonesia masih berada dalam kategori Blacklist. 

Rasanya sangat jauh panggang dari api.
Indonesia berada pada kategori Blacklist oleh Tokyo MOU merupakan gambaran umum kondisi  Pelayaran Indonesia dimata dunia.


Sah sah saja Jika Indonesia berwacana ingin menjadi Poros Maritim dunia, tidak ada yang salah dengan wacana tersebut namun harus diikuti dengan tindakan yang nyata dalam menyiapkan sumber daya manusia yang mumpuni serta komitmen yang kuat dari pemerintah dan pelaku usaha/ pemangku kepentingan  untuk dapat mewujudkan keinginan tersebut. 

Dengan situasi dan  kondisi dunia Pelayaran Indonesia saat ini, apa mungkin ? ( Rudy Kumesan )

Cambodia: Let Opposition Leaders Return

 Cache

(Bangkok) – The Cambodian government should permit exiled opposition leaders to return to Cambodia and freely resume political activities, Human Rights Watch said today. As part of the crackdown on the opposition Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP), Prime Minister Hun Sen has threatened to arrest Sam Rainsy and other party leaders who plan to return on November 9, 2019, Cambodian Independence Day.

“After banning the opposition and staging sham trials to convict Sam Rainsy, now Prime Minister Hun Sen is blocking Rainsy’s return to the country,” said Brad Adams, Asia director. “This is the culmination of three months of aggressive harassment, arrests, and attacks on the CNRP and its members, which is really about preventing the restoration of multi-party democracy in Cambodia.”

Hun Sen has repeatedly called on Rainsy to return to Cambodia to be imprisoned, but now says he and other party leaders cannot return, Human Rights Watch said. On September 17, Hun Sen declared that the government had sent other ASEAN countries arrest warrants for Sam Rainsy in an effort to prevent Rainsy from transiting them to reach Cambodia. On November 1, Radio Free Asia reported that the Cambodian Civil Aviation Authority had issued a directive instructing 47 commercial airlines not to allow Rainsy to board their aircraft. Cambodia’s state secretary of civil aviation clarified that this ban also extended to seven other CNRP officials as well as Tioulong Saumura, Rainsy’s wife.

Without offering evidence, on September 26, a Phnom Penh court charged eight leading members of the CNRP who had left Cambodia ahead of the July 2018 elections – Sam Rainsy, Mu Sochua, Ou Chanrith, Eng Chhai Eang, Men Sothavarin, Long Ry, Tob Van Chan, and Ho Vann – with attempting to stage a coup.

During the last week of October, photos circulated of armed military and other security units holding anti-protest trainings and marching down streets with military tanks through villages in Banteay Meanchey and Battambang provinces close to the Thai-Cambodia border. The CNRP leadership had previously announced  they would seek to enter Cambodia via Thai land borders. On October 30, the Voice of America reported that Interior Minister Sar Kheng ordered local officials to monitor people in villages and to direct them to stay away from any anti-government activities on November 9. Posters of exiled CNRP leaders have been placed at Malaysian and Cambodian-Thai border crossings, the media reported. On November 5, government-aligned Fresh News reported that over 40 checkpoint crossings at the Cambodian-Thai border were closed.

On November 6, Hor Nambora, Cambodia’s ambassador to Indonesia, arrived uninvited at a news conference in Jakarta by CNRP Vice-President Mu Sochua, and disrupted the proceedings by seizing the microphone. He told the organizers to end the news conference, told journalists to be silent, and told an Indonesian police officer there to arrest Sochua. He then left, and the news conference continued.

Since Rainsy announced that he would return to Cambodia, the Cambodian authorities have arrested 92 suspected CNRP activists and others on various charges, including plotting against the state, incitement to commit a felony, and discrediting judicial decisions, and detained 45 of them.

“It’s ridiculous that the Cambodian government is treating a political party that has always engaged in nonviolence as a military threat,” Adams said. “The government should immediately end this harassment campaign against the political opposition, drop all politically motivated charges, and unconditionally release those wrongfully held.”   

The authorities have forced about 143 opposition members to surrender to police and publicly denounce the CNRP to avoid arrest for “plotting” under article 454 of Cambodia’s penal code, the Phnom Penh Post reported.

The authorities should also impartially investigate the death on October 30 of Som Bopha, a CNRP activist in Svay Rieng province, after she fell from a police officer’s motorbike while being taken to the police station. At the time of her arrest, Bopha told the police that she was feeling ill and was unable to sit on the motorbike. A video posted on Facebook shows her severely injured after she fell.

In November 2017, the government-controlled Supreme Court dissolved the CNRP and banned 118 party members from political activity for five years; 109 of them are still banned. The court action came in advance of national elections in which the opposition CNRP was expected to challenge the ruling party’s longtime rule. On July 29, 2018, elections were held without a major opposition party and the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) won all 125 seats in the National Assembly, effectively making Cambodia a one-party state.

Under article 12 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), to which Cambodia is party, “No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of the right to enter his own country.”

“Sam Rainsy and other opposition leaders have the right under international law to return home and engage in peaceful political activities,” Adams said. “Foreign governments and donors should make it clear to the Cambodian government that it must restore genuine political pluralism or face consequences.”

Three Benefits of Indonesia’s Permanent Ban on Forest Clearance

 Cache   

Nirarta Samadhi, World Resources Institute

Five years ago, Indonesia was considered one of the world’s worst forest destroyers. But a permanent moratorium on new clearance of primary forest and peatland, recently announced by Presiden Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s administration, may turn that around.

The ban, released under a presidential instruction, may save around 66.2 million hectares of natural forest and peatland, an area larger than France, from disappearing.

The permanent ban means Indonesia, home to the third-largest tropical forest after the Amazon and Congo, is aiming for zero deforestation in primary forest and peatland. The Indonesian government will also restore degraded lands.

The UN body for climate change research, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), recently released a special report on climate change and lands. It revealed reducing deforestation and restoring degraded lands are two of the of the most effective options to mitigate the climate crisis.

Here are three benefits from the permanent ban.

1. Zero deforestation of primary forest and peatland

By keeping natural forests and peatland intact, Indonesia can keep at least the equivalent of 32 gigatons of carbon dioxide in the ground.

This is equivalent to the emissions released from 6.1 billion passenger vehicles per year.

The moratorium, first implemented in 2011 under President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, expired in July 2019. Jokowi’s decision came after conservationists called for him to make the moratorium permanent.

Three things Jokowi could do better to stop forest fires and haze in Indonesia

An analysis by Global Forest Watch (GFW) on the forested moratorium areas in 2016, 2017 and 2018 suggested that the tree cover loss decreased from 533,000 hectares in 2016, to 157,000 and 139,000 hectares in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

This shows a ban to convert forests and peatland areas is effective.

Most importantly, the size of the moratorium areas has been stable over the past three years, at approximately 66 million hectares. Hence, a permanent ban on these areas, followed by robust monitoring, can bring Indonesia to zero deforestation on natural primary forest and peatland.

2. Secure people’s livelihood

Indonesia has more than 25,000 villages in and around the forested areas, with 9,261 villages included in the moratorium area.

People living in these villages won’t have to worry about losing their surrounding forest to new concessions. These people depend on forests not just as their homes, but also for their livelihood, such as tapping rubber, looking for herbs, planting endemic plants or fruits, cultivating rattan, among other things.

Supported by robust forest management, people and indigenous communities living close to the forests can improve their welfare.

3. Approach to reduce forest fires

Forests affect climate. Climate too affects our forests. With worsening climate change that leads to longer dry seasons, forests are more vulnerable to fires, resulting in deforestation and forests degradation. But, a permanent ban is likely to ensure fires can be further reduced.

Data Global Forest Watch showed more hotspots in 60,9 million hectares of forested moratorium areas during July and August 2019. With various intensity, 1537 hotspots were recorded. This is a continued trend to the same period in 2017 and 2018 when 736 and 1,004 hotspots were recorded.

Climate change indeed affects forests and a drier season in 2019 needs different approach in forest management. A permanent ban with robust monitoring is key to avoid more fires.

What next?

First, understanding where the forests are and making priorities over areas that need to be saved is critical.

As the forest moratorium becomes permanent, the indicative protected forest and peatland map issued in 2017 should be improved to become a definitive one. The map, the original of which was issued in May 2011 under President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s administration, has been revised 15 times.

Indicative Map Revision XV.
Ministry of Environment and Forestry

Hence, transforming the map from indicative to definitive should be a priority as the ban becomes permanent. This step is important in terms of forest governance in Indonesia, especially if the government finally mapped out forest boundaries in the country.

Successfully determining the definitive map of forest boundaries will sort out the longstanding land conflicts in the country.

Soal UMK, KSPSI Kebumen Mengaku Sangat Kecewa

 Cache   
KEBUMEN (kebumeneskpres.com)- Konfederasi Serikat Pekerja Seluruh Indonesia (KSPSI) Kebumen mengaku sangat kecewa dengan keputusan Bupati Kebumen terkait dengan usulan Upah Minimum Kabupaten (UMK). Ini lantaran Bupati menetapkan usulan UMK dibawah usulan dari KSPSI.

Terkait dengan usulan UMK, sebelumnya telah diberitakan jika terjadi perbedaan pendapat antaran Asosiasi Pengusaha Indonesia (Apindo) dan Konfederasi Serikat Pekerja Seluruh Indonesia (KSPSI) Kebumen. Karena keduanya berselisih paham terkait besaran usulan UMK Kebumen tahun 2020, Rapat Dewan Pengupahan pun tidak memenuhi titik temu atau kata sepakat.

Dalam hal ini Apindo mengusulkan kenaikan UMK untuk tahun 2020 sebesar 8,71 persen atau menjadi Rp 1.830.000. Itu mendasar pada formula PP nomor 78 tahun 2015 tentang Pengupahan. Sebagaimana Pasal 44 ayat 2 dijelaskan Upah Minimum (UM) 2020 yakni UM 2019 + (UM 2019 x (inflasi + pertumbuhan ekonomi).

Pendapat berbeda datang dari pihak Serikat Pekerja. Dalam hal ini Serikat Pekerja mengusulkan agar usulan UMK Kebumen tahun 2020 sebesar Rp 1.850.000.  Alasannya mempertimbangkan banyaknya kebutuhan pokok yang masuk dalam komponen KHL di tahun 2020 akan naik. Dengan adanya ketidaksepakatan tersebut, maka penentuan usulan UMK Kebumen kini berada di tangan Bupati Kebumen H Yazid Mahfudz. Bupati Kebumen akhirnya menetapkan usulan UMK Kebumen tahun 2020 sebesar Rp 1.835.000. Jumlah tersebut masih di bawah usulan KSPSI.

Ketua KSPSI Kebumen Akif Fatwal Amin mengaku sangat kecewa dengan keputusan yang diambil oleh Bupati Kebumen yang hanya memberi kenaikan Rp 5.500 dari tuntutan Rp 20.500.

Padahal beban pekerja di tahun 2020 akan semakin berat. Ini dengan naiknya beberapa komponen yang masuk dalam KHL. Hal itu meliputi iuran BPJS, listrik, BBM dan lainnya sebagainya. “Lagi pula survey KHL yang dijadikan dasar dalam penetapan usulan UMK 2020 adalah hasil survey tahun 2016,” terangnya, Rabu (6/11/2019).

Menurut Akif melihat hal tersebut seakan menimbulkan persepsi bahwa Bupati Kebumen lebih berpihak kepada pengusaha. Melihat beban ke depan yang semakin berat, usulan UMK seharusnya lebih memihak kepada buruh.

Menanggapi hal tersebut Bupati H Yazid menyampaikan penetapan yang dilaksanakan oleh Bupati lebih tinggi dari usulan pengusaha. Dimana usulan pengusaha Rp 1.830.000. Karena tidak terjadi kesepakatan kemudian diserahkan kepada Bupati dan ditetapkan usulan UMK Kebumen Tahun 2020 sebesar Rp 1.835.000. “Selain telah mempertimbangkan banyak hal, penetapan tersebut juga menjadi titik temu perbedaan pendapat antara Apindo dan KSPSI,” katanya.

Sementara itu Kabid Usaha Mikro dan Hubungan Industrial pada Dinas Tenaga Kerja Koperasi dan UKM (Disnaker KUKM) Khamla Nugraheni menyampaikan nominal tersebut merupakan usulan. Aturan yang dipakai untuk menghitung usulan UMK adalah PP Nomor 78 Tahun 2015 tentang Pengupahan. Ini dengan kenaikan kenaikan 8,51 persen. “Bupati memberikan angka 1.835.000 sudah diatas ketentuan tersebut. Selain Rp 1.835.000 juga telah naik di atas 8,51 persen yakni 8,84 persen. Penetapan itu juga sudah diatas usulan Apindo Rp 1.830.000,” ucapnya. (mam)
          

Wabup: Maulid Nabi Momentum Perkuat Silaturahmi

 Cache   
KEBUMEN (kebumenekspres.com)- Di bulan ini, warga Kebumen dari seluruh wilayah menggelar peringatan maulid nabi.  Seiring dengan itu, undangan terus berdatangan bagi Wakil Bupati Kebumen, Arif Sugiyanto.

Orang nomor dua di Kebumen itupun harus memenuhi undangan dari masjid ke masjid, dari pelosok hingga pesisir wilayah Kebumen.  Tentunya bukan pekerjaan yang ringan. Namun sepertinya, Arif Sugiyanto tidak pernah memikirkan hal itu.

Sepanjang tidak ada tugas lain yang lebih mendesak, Arif selalu berusaha datang.  Undangan demi undangan dihadirinya mulai dari pelaksanan peringatan Malulid Nabi di Mushola Bustanul Muridin RT 1 RW 1 Desa Kalipurwo, Kecamatan Kuwarasan, Masjid Al Iman Jerukgulung RT 01 RW 04 Jatiluhur Karanganyar pada Sabtu (2/11), hingga peringatan Maulid Nabi di Desa Tegalretno Kecamatan Petanahan.

Malah dalam setiap kesempatan bertemu warga, Arif tak bosan-bosan menitip pesan dan himbauan. Yang selalu ia tekankan,  Maulid Nabi Muhammad SAW merupakan salah satu momentum untuk membangun dan memperkuat persatuan dan kesatuan umat muslim di Kabupaten Kebumen. Yakni, agar masyarakat tidak mudah terpecah belah harus diperkuat dengan tali silaturahmi.

Hal itu juga ia sampaikan saat menghadiri undangan warga DesaTegalretno, Kecamatan Petanahan, yang menggelar muludan di Masjid Ar Rofah Dusun Baleng desa setempat. Hadir kemarin, Wakil Bupati Kebumen Arif Sugiyanto, sejumlah pejabat dan camat yakni diantaranya Camat Petanahan, perangkat Desa Tegalretno, Ikatan Persaudaraan Haji Indonesia (IPHI) Kecamatan Petanahan, Camat Karanganyar, hingga Camat Kuarasan dan sejumlah tokoh masyarakat dan forkompincam.

Wakil Bupati menyampaikan, Rabiul Awal merupakan bulan kelahiran Nabi Muhammad SAW. Sebagai Umat Islam memperingati kelahiran Nabi bisa dengan banyak beribadah dan berdoa saat maulid Nabi. Apalagi, pada bulan yang mulia ini umat islam disunahkan untuk memperbanyak membaca solawat Nabi.

"Peringatan Maulid Nabi menjadi momentum yang tepat bagi semuanya untuk merenungkan keteladanan Rasulullah. Dalam hal kekuatan akidah dan ibadah, Rasulullah menjadikan masjid sebagai pusat pembinaan aqidah, pembinaan ibadah, pembinaan muamalah bagi umat Islam dengan beragam latar belakang sosial budayanya. Insya Allah dengan meneladani Rasulullah kita bisa buktikan bahwa Islam itu agama yang rahmatan lil alamin. Islam yang mengajarkan kedamaian. Islam yang menjadi rahmat bagi semesta alam, khususnya rahmat bagi bangsa dan negara kita Indonesia,” kata Wabup.

Tak hanya di Kecamatan Petanahan, Wabup juga menyampaikan pesan yang sama saat menghadiri peringatan Maulid Nabi di Masjid Al Iman Jerukgulung RT 01 RW 04  Kelurahan Jatiluhur Karanganyar. Ia sempat mendampingi ulama besar KH Achmad Chalwani dari Berjan Kabupaten Purworejo.
Pada momentum itu Wakil Bupati mengajak kaum muslimin dan muslimat di Kabupaten Kebumen untuk senantiasa memperteguh keyakinan dan semangat untuk melanjutkan pembangunan daerah ini.

"Membangun daerah di atas pondasi keimanan dan ketaqwaan yang kuat. Dengan kebersihan jiwa dan kesucian nurani sebagaimana yang diajarkan oleh Rasulullah. Dengan meyakini dan melaksanakan ajaran itu, Insya Allah Kebumen akan menjadi daerah yang maju."

"Keempatan ini bisa menjadi media silaturahmi masyarakat, menjadi motivasi dalam kehidupan berbangsa dan bernegara yang lebih baik untuk mewujudkan Kabupaten Kebumen yang mandiri dan sejahtera," katanya.

Dalam kesempatan yang sama, Wakil Bupati mengingatkan masalah nilai-nilai kesantuan, kesopanan, budi pekerti yang baik dalam berucap dan bertindak. Salah satunya dari penerimaan informasi melalui gadget kita. Dikatakanya di kehidupan serba era informasi dan digitalisasi saat ini masyarakat harus bisa menyaring informasi yang didapat.
"Pertama jika informasi tidak disaring maka akan banyak informasi yang keliru yang akhirnya bisa memecah-belah persatuan dan itu yang harus kita jaga. Kedua, tantangan bangsa kita ke depan adalah semakin sengitnya era persaingan global karena itu kita di Kabupaten Kebumen harus solid, harus menjadikan kabupaten ini menjadi kabupaten yang mandiri, berkepribadian, berkarakter. Wakil Bupati mengajak umat Islam di Kebumen untuk selalu berbicara baik, berpikir positif, untuk selalu optimis, untuk selalu bekerja keras, dan memperkuat ukhuwah wathaniyah kita," ungkapnya.

Pelatihan Pemodelan Distribusi Spesies menggunakan MaxEnt untuk Konservasi Primata Indonesia

 Cache   

Oleh : Luhur Septiadi
Jurusan Biologi, Universitas Islam Negeri Maulana Malik Ibrahim, Malang, Indonesia, 
email : luhur.septiadi@gmail.com

Sebagai agenda lanjutan dari Simposium dan Kongres Primata pada 18-20 September 2019 lalu, maka dilaksanakan Workshop MaxEnt sebagai upaya konservasi Primata di Indonesia. Kegiatan ini diselenggarakan bekerjasama dengan Jurusan Kehutanan Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang. Kegiatan ini dilaksanakan mulai dari 25-26 Oktober 2019 dan diikuti oleh sebanyak 25 peserta yang telah diseleksi sebelumnya,  dari berbagai macam universitas, komunitas, praktisi BKSDA, NGO, dan berbagai macam instansi lain dari Jawa dan ada juga beberapa peneliti dari Kalimantan.

Kegiatan ini eksklusif dilaksanakan di Malang, dalam upaya meningkatkan  kapasitas peneliti muda dan juga berjejaring dengan pegiat konservasi primata dan satwaliar khususnya yang ada di Jawa Timur. Acara ini diisi dengan pengenalan teori pada hari pertama sekaligus praktik pemodelan distribusi yang dilaksanakan pada hari berikutnya. Agenda pertama diisi oleh Iwan Kurniawan dari  Javan Langur Center- Aspinall Foundation Indonesia Program, yang menjelaskan terkait pengetahuan dasar mengenai primata di Indonesia, pola perdagangan primata di Jawa, perlakuan dalam konservasi primata, proses rehabilitasi primata, sekaligus upaya konservasi yang sejauh ini telah dilakukan khususnya di wilayah Jawa Timur diantaranya di Coban Talun dan Pantai Kondang Merak. Dari pemaparannya, upaya konservasi primata khususnya di Jawa Timur memerlukan perhatian yang lebih.

Agenda selanjutnya diisi oleh Salmah Widyastuti, Mahasiswi Program Magister Biologi Institut Pertanian Bogor, yang menjelaskan terkait Pengantar Model Distribusi Spesies menggunakan MaxEnt. Melalui penelitiannya tentang model kesesuian habitat Owa Jawa di daerah Jawa Tengah, dapat diketahui bahwa habitat dari Owa Jawa telah terfragmentasi, berdasarkan variabel lingkungannya berupa hutan alami, ketinggian, jarak ke wilayah produksi, dan temperatur. Dari sini, peserta dapat memahami cara kerja dan penggunaan MaxEnt untuk konservasi primata, yang kemudian akan dilanjutkan keesokan harinya untuk praktiknya dalam aplikasi secara langsung.

Keesokan harinya, agenda pelatihan MaxEnt dipandu langsung oleh Swiss Winasis dari Burungnesia. Peserta dibimbing secara intensif, dalam pengoperasian platform penganalisis spasial seperti ArcGIS dan MaxEnt. Dari praktiknya secara langsung, diketahui bahwa penggunaan MaxEnt akan lebih efektif apabila yang dimodelkan distribusinya merupakan spesies spesifik, memiliki preferensi habitat tertentu, dan dalam skala yang lebih luas.

Pemodelan distribusi habitat dari suatu spesies spesifik khususnya primata sangatlah diperlukan dewasa ini, mengingat konversi lahan dan deforestasi di pulau Jawa yang kian hari kian meningkat. Keberadaan satwa-satwa primata di Indonesia sangatlah penting untuk di lestarikan, dan diharapkan peserta workshop kali ini dapat menerapkan ilmu yang didapatkan, untuk diterapkan ke lingkungan dan bidang ilmunya masing-masing. Dengan adanya kegiatan ini diharapkan upaya konservasi Primata di Indonesia juga semakin mendapatkan prioritas dan perhatian lebih di seluruh lapisan dan elemen masyarakat.

Acara Workshop MaxEnt – Post Congress Training Program, Indonesia Primate Symposium & Congress 2019, dengan tema “Pemodelan Distribusi Spesies & Aplikasinya dalam Konservasi Primata Indonesia”, terselenggara berkat dukungan dari banyak pihak diantaranya Jurusan Kehutanan Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang, Perhimpunan Ahli dan Pemerhati Primata Indonesia (PERHAPPI), Kongress PrimataIndonesia, ARCUS Foundation, dan SwaraOwa.

Informasi mengenai rangkuman dalam cara dan penggunaan terkait teknis dalam analisis MaxEnt, dapat diunduh pada link dibawah ini.

A TRIBUTE TO MY BLOGGER FRIENDS

A TRIBUTE TO MY BLOGGER FRIENDS.
by: Neneng R. Tarigan

Friendship is a unique relationship that knows no difference, cultural or otherwise.~

As bloggers, I think it is part of our obligation to promote our friends' blogs or their web sites in any possible way we can.
Yes, I must admit, sometimes we feel reluctant because some of them are so unmindful even to leave a little comment on our posts; we feel bad about that. However, let us forget about their negative sides for a while and think what we can value and learn from our blogger friends who really have brilliant ideas to put in their blogs, sorts of stories and info that would make our lives as the readers much happier, knowledgeable and colorful.
Let us just remember, how they have made our day full with laughter and curiosity with their intriguing writings, how they can turn our egoism down with their preaches and the wise words as well as poems that they have created or some had been quoted from famous people around the world, or the pictures and traveling experiences they shared with us in their blogs, their cooking recipes, their fashion ideas, their health tips, their amazing pictures, their gigs, their craziness, their cartoons, their love stories, their films, their talent as fortune tellers, their free money making machines, their skill as an IT experts, their gardening, their small agriculture expertise, their arts, their architecture, their free games and thousand others that could color our lives.
This post is a tribute to that kind of friends I have. There are thousands of them, but let us check some of their links and find out why these people deserve a special tribute as friends, though most of them are non professional writers, photographers, film makers, but what they had produced would make us whispers: " Yes indeed, they are really good!"
Here are some recommended links that I am sure you might share my view of their quality. Please take note that the row where I put the names of the bloggers does not represent the rank at all. You may also recommend me more links and categories to be add in this list, but that should not be the links belong to companies or organizations except your own company or organization; I am sure that will be interesting and fun as we could assume it as a little appreciation among us as real bloggers.
I highly value your concern for spending your precious time to check for the links in this list. I wish our works as bloggers would contribute to a greater advantageous to many people around the globe; and most importantly, to create a better connection and to enable us as human beings to live in peace and harmony together.
May God bless our works.
Forever your friend, Neneng Tarigan - Indonesia.

MY FIRST U TUBE VIDEO: Revive The Batak Culture

 Cache   


This video was made on 25 June 2010, during a fund raising program entitled "Revive The Batak Culture", to support the Maranatha Choir mission to Austria to compete in the World Choir competition that annually participated by various group of churches choirs from all over the world.

Members of the Maranatha Choir Indonesia, represented various ethnic groups in the country; however since the majority of Christian community in Indonesia is from Batak origin, therefore, some action had been taken to enable the Choir to go to the World Choir Competition by conducting a musical and fashion show entitled "Revive the Batak culture" for the fund raising.

Batak, which is consisted of 5 major ethnic groups: Tapanuli, Karo, Simalungun, Mandailing and Dairi are largely very devoted Christians, except Mandailing, where most people in this ethnic group is Islam.

This video shows a dance from Karo ethnic group, where I belong. I hope you enjoy the video. (Neneng Tarigan) http://neneng-tarigan.blogspot.com/


          

RETIREMENT: A Nightmare?

RETIREMENT: A Night Mare?

PART I: My Childhood As Daughter Of A Soldier.


When I retired, I realized that time flies very fast. I still remember vividly how I scream loudly looking for my mommy who left me alone among strangers at my first debut at the age of three entering my kindergarten school in Kutaraja (Banda Aceh) the Northern Part of Sumatra.

At that time, I might have thought, that mommy didn't have any pity on her own daughter by leaving me alone like an orphan at the kindergarten school. I remember they called me as a tearful kid for I was non stop crying waiting for my mom's hands although Kak Ida (Sister Ida) and Tante Lus (Aunt Lus) my teachers played a beautiful children song Potong Bebek Angsa or Slaught the Duck Swan in the piano and bribed me with a sack of candies that children normally loved.

My first debut at the kindergarten school in Kutaraja, Aceh.

We lived in Kutaraja until my age was 4; then we forced to move for a refuge to Medan, because there was a big chaos in Aceh. Daud Bereuh the Governor of Aceh rebelled in order to enact a Muslim Republic in Aceh, separated from The Republic of Indonesia. Daddy had to stay in Aceh with the Indonesian loyalist troops in which quite a number of them were also an Aceh origin.

I hardly recall, how long had we been staying in a hotel in Medan or back and forth to Berastagi to stay in my dad's home town. What I remember is, we then moved to Tanjung Selamat to a military compound about 12 kilometers from Medan. Daddy joined us about a year after the situation in Aceh subsided under the control of the Republic. In Tanjung Selamat, I began my first elementary school until the second grade and there my mommy gave birth to my two lovely sisters; so we were five, two boys and three girls.

In my childhood, I was known as a tearful yet quarrelsome kid. So quiet, so shy, yet a spoiled brat little kid and a rebellious one, that was who I notoriously known, besides as my daddy most beloved child. Among the seven kids they have, I knew well, that my parents treated their second child or me more special and distinctive than others, not because I was the good one, no, only because, I can be so threatening and harmful to the other kids, if they messed up with me. That was possibly why, my parents had to make a persuasive approach so that I would not kill my siblings one by one with a dagger or stones as I always threatening them if my parents were not home! (Hmmmm,...that what I called a self defense. Actually I had never done that, because personally, I was the weakest in the family!)

People who didn't know our family might have thought that I was the only kid of my parents, or the youngest or the only daughter, because they always brought me wherever they go except to a funeral, a wedding or a hospital. I was reluctant to go to those three particular places, because I dislike and scared to see someone dead or ill, and so shy to go to a wedding because of inferiority complex of feeling so ugly. Yes, I felt, I looked like an alien, sometimes so fat and most of the time so skinny with protruded teeth. Because of that feeling and the teases I got from my siblings and parents, I became harmful, rebellious, arrogant and isolated at home. However, to my two little sisters I can be warmth and protective, it was just automatic, I didn't know why, even up to now, might be because they are both much nicer than my brothers. I also would always be nice to friends (boys and girls), easy going and friendly, they always took care of me and attentive. Of course there were some unfriendly friends, but in my childhood, I didn't recall of having any enemy, they were all too good to me.

Growing up, I knew that, mommy changed a bit, she seemed in favor to my two sisters rather than to me, however, I had never lost the love of my daddy. I was still, obviously his favorite.

I still remember, he would fulfilled whatever I asked, as long as he had money, I can always got what I want. Nonetheless, as a military man daddy always went to a battle ground. At that time, between 1950 till end of 1960s, there were lot of separative movements or rebellions in my country, so I hardly met my daddy at home, sometimes till a year or two.

To meet my daddy, I recalled, my mom in the early of 1960 had to arrange a cultural performance to enable us and all of the family of the soldiers to go to the military front line to entertain my dad's battalion. She asked the permission from the commander of the Sumatra Army an approval to visit the battalion, because dad as the commandant of the Tiger Battalion (Battalion Macan Kumbang) and his troops, had long gone from home for a battle, although the distance between Medan and Rantau Perapat is only 300 kilometers.

Mommy was a very smart, strong and brave woman; she was really well organize in almost everything especially in dealing with her 7 brat little kids. I wonder how she manage my dad's meager salary and educated us so well by spending so little for what her personally needs for the shake of her kids.

Mommy was the best woman I have ever had in life. She was so funny, lovable and always put her children and may dad interests in the first place. I remember when we were small (maybe around 1957) in Tanjung Selamat, some strangers came to our house and looked for my daddy. Actually, I was the first they met, but I honestly said to the strangers that daddy was not home, then mommy came out and convinced them to look for my daddy in the office not far from home, because our house was in the military compound. Mommy was so calm and full in control, she didn't show her fear though our house that time was the furthest from the office. She even offered them to drink and to allow her to call my dad. They refused the offer and left. I didn't know why the strangers then left us alone. After they gone, mommy hurriedly locked the door, gathered all of us (her five children at that time) inside of her bed room and told us to lie down on the floor and waited for her for a while. It was already late in the afternoon, we didn't know where mommy was, until she told us that she went out to report about the strangers to some soldiers who lived at the back of our house.

Not long after, our house was bombarded with machine guns, I scared to death and so did my siblings seemed scared and shocked not knowing what was going on. We heard the machine guns swinging like in the battle ground. We knew the story about the revolution from our parents because mom was a nurse and dad was a soldier when they met during the revolution against Dutch colonial and the Japanese in 1940s. However, we didn't know that the Battle ground against domestic rebellion would be so horrifying and threatening. Mommy tried to keep us as quiet as possible and encouraged us to be brave because our soldiers were out there fighting against the rebellion.

About half an hour, the gun shots stop and later some soldiers came and told us to stay put, because we were all well protected. They said daddy was in hide, there were big rebellions against the Republic, we had to refuge the next day. Mommy was not in good health that time. She was very ill but she had to take care of her five little children alone. We run for a refuge from Tanjung Selamat to Pulau Berayan nearby Medan in the middle of the night and lived there in a very small military house. As far as I remember, we never stay in a small house like that, a wood house with 3 small bed rooms, a very modest kitchen and a toilet; but we had to, because our state was in emergency.

My mom illness became more serious, she lied on bed helplessly. I was about 8 years old and with my mom sister who sometime came, I had to take care of my mommy and my siblings. In her lame less mommy told me to take care of my siblings and abide by the step mother if one day daddy had to marry again when she is gone. I cried a lot alone and felt so very sad and lonely, I met dad only once or twice in a month, the political situation and the condition was so unstable. Later, he brought mommy to the hospital and she stayed there for months. One night, we were all brought by bus to run for a refuge to Berastagi North Sumatra (my dad's home town) 60 kilometers from Medan. Mommy was still in the hospital in Medan. We had to run away and hide ourselves in Berastagi. We didn't know the daddy's whereabouts. Later we knew that his commandant Colonel Simbolon and Lieutenant Colonel Boyke Nainggolan were in battled against the Republic. My dad under Colonel Djamin Gintings and the loyalist troops had to wait for additional helps from the Capital (Jakarta) while they re-arranged the strategy to fight against the separatist troops led by Colonel Simbolon.

Indonesia was really in chaos in 1950s. So many separatists groups scattered between Aceh up to Sulawesi. They wanted to separate from the Republic of Indonesia either for reasons of religion, regional independence, cultural, or economic imbalances or whatsoever. Regardless the reasons, however, they were all failed, because until now the majority of Indonesians are united and all loyal to the Republic. For us, government could change many times, but the Republic would stand forever!

We lived in Berastagi in my grandpa's house for months and all of us refrained from school. One night, some troops (in late of 1958) came and brought us to our new big house at Jalan Padang Bulan, Medan, where dad and his platoon was actually based while fighting back the rebellion. The situation was still unstable, some separatists were successfully entering our house yard where the platoon was temporarily stayed in tents. Again, gun fired swings around us but only for few minutes and the platoon had successfully pushed them away and caught them.

From 1959, the Republic troops were fully in control in Medan and that time mommy gave birth to my two little brothers the number sixth and seventh. There was not much room to manoeuvre for the remaining separatist group. Not only their space to move in the mountains became much smaller, but most of them was caught by the military and some who were still hiding had to surrender either voluntarily or by force. With no support from the people of course no rebellion can survived. From 1962 everything was settled. The whole Sumatra except some part in Aceh were totally under the control of the Republic. From there on, we lived peacefully in our big house at jalan Padang Bulan Medan until we moved to our own house at jalan Hayam Wuruk, in the same city, the house that my dad bought partly from the money that he inherited from his late father who died in the revolution in late 1940s.

I finished my junior high school at the age of thirteen in Medan, not as the smartest, I was just ordinary student but not dumb at all.

We lived in Medan until I was about fifteenth, then we had to move to Kotabaru, Pulau Laut (Sea Island) in Kalimantan, to join my daddy who had been assigned as the commandant of a military regiment. He was a lieutenant colonel that time; and only 6 kids joining him, because the eldest (my brother and my cousin) preferred to live in Medan rather than in a small town like Kota Baru.

That time, I was at the second grade of my senior high school; and in the public school where I studied, there were only 3 teachers (one for Indonesian language, one for English and one for history!), whereas my major was math. It was really tough living in an island with such poor condition and with population might be only around 10.000 people. No facilities than 20 land rovers and trucks in the island. The island only had one medical doctor (dr. Ari Dodo) and a clinic. There were only two high school there, one was the public school where I was the student and the other was a Chinese school.

However, the view of the island was extremely fantastic and we always have fresh fruits, fishes and meats on the table. Sometimes we can eat bunch of cheese and various imported fruits like apples and grapes from the foreign ships that were always stop and anchored in the small pier of the island. (Usually American, Dutch and British ships that passed by the island before heading to Balik Papan, where their oil companies invested.)

We always give the ship captain and some crew a small party in our house whenever they stop by the island, we try to make them feel at home and welcome. For us and the people in the island it was nice to see big ships and visitors around. Slowly, I understand that by giving them a small party my parents were also try to introduce and educate their kids in how to live in international circle.

People in Kotabaru were all very friendly and respected us, we were living on the hill in a military big house and well guarded by some soldiers. But I hated being guarded, because at any time if my friends come and visit me, they had to report to the guards first although our house had no fences and everyone actually could get in from every part of the house yard. In Indonesia, especially in the regions, they look up high to military commandants, to the mayors or the heads of the districts! Thanks God that our parents disciplined us to always live modestly and humble, they taught us to mingling with everyone and to love people, and to understand that daddy was only an ordinary soldier. He never boosted himself as the youngest son of a rich man from highland Karo, instead he told us how difficult it was living under the step mothers. He said, he only had two clothes in his childhood, although his daddy was one of the rich there in Karo and only have two sons.

We lived in Kota Baru for about a year and a half. It was the most peaceful and friendly place I had ever enjoyed in life. My friends were all very nice, especially Ratna who lived next door, she was my neighbor and classmate. (I wonder where she is now). Regretfully however, our peaceful life was under threat again. At that time in 1965, there were big disturbances in our country. Members of the Communists Party (PKI/Partai Komunis Indonesia) had brutally killed 6 of our military generals with an accused that they would organize a coup de tat against President Soekarno and that they were members of the “ Council Generals” (Dewan Jenderal) who planned to take over the presidency.

The situation was really unstable. The Air Force and Cakra Birawa (the president's special guards) took side with the communists party. Many military men and dignitaries in major parts of Indonesia were killed. Once again, bloodshed dripping wet our beloved land. The state was in emergency, because of the civil war created by the communist party. The occurrence known as “G 30 PKI” (Gerakan 30 September Partai Komunis Indonesia or the 30 September Movement of Indonesian Communist Party); which was indicated to had been fully supported by the People of the Republic of China and the Soviet Union. Once again; our country was in great danger, as the consequence of the Cold War!

Soekarno, the first President was reluctantly condemn the communist party for the reasons of national stability and maintaining secularism. He said, he didn't want to see the country in turmoil.

As the results of his stubbornness and by the force of the students demonstrations, the communist party and the Cakra Birawa were desolated, the life long President Soekarno who had governed the country for 20 years had to withdrawn from the presidency and had been in house detained till he died in 21st June 1970, because of high blood pressure and kidney ailment. What a tragic for such a great leader like him.

On 1st October 1965, in mid of the celebration of the anniversary of the People of the Republic of China, held at the Chinese School Kotabaru, my dad rushed home, he immediately held an emergency meeting with his staff. When he arrived home, I inform him what I heard from Radio Australia that there was a big chaos in Jakarta, the radio talked about the General Council and the missing of some of Indonesian generals. I told him that I didn't fully understand what the radio had said. The next day and days after days, daddy seemed so extremely busy. I knew then that many members of the communist party were detained. The Chinese school was closed and desolated.

My daddy taught me the politics and the need to fully understand the history, the back ground of each political party and to put the love on our country above all of our interests. He said, in order to achieve the objective, most of the political party using force and sometimes so cruel and sneaky. He never said to any of his kids not to involve in the politics or the arm forces. However he always said that he would be happy if we could just be a doctor, an engineer, a civil servant or a businessman like his dad.

As a military man, of course he was not a partisan of any political party. Once, I asked him whether he had any fear whenever he was in the battle ground, he said yes, especially after he had 7 of us but had to defense the country in the battle ground. He said he always had to be more cautious and in full coordination with all of his soldier friends in order to be able to arrive home safely.

Daddy was always in the military infantry when he was young, up to the age of late 40. Then when the situation is more stable, from 1970 till his retirement he was in the staff position. He ended up his career as a colonel for 12 years. A very honest man that I always love and respect. I knew how disappointed he was to his military career. But it was always difficult for a Christian and an honest person to have a career in a country with Muslim majority; only one or two could be successfully either because that person is peculiarly smart or “smart” in negatively connotation!

As Indonesians, we would always be loyal to our nation though unfairness remain in tag in this islands country. However, I strongly suggest that the issues of differences have to be cautiously and wisely addressed and revived, to strengthen and empowering Indonesia!

          

IN MEMORIAL: MY MOST BELOVED PARENTS

 Cache   
THE TWO BROTHERS:

 My uncle and my dad.

I wonder where on earth I have ever seen brothers that are so closed to each other like my uncle, the eldest M. Tarigan, a successful businessman and my dad the youngest, S. Tarigan, a colonel of the army. They called themselves as "chicken legs", only two, so when one leg lost, the chicken would be crippled, no more balance, no more health, only sadness left. It proved! When my uncle passed away decades back, I could only see sadness in my daddy's eyes till he also passed away in 1994 when I was still posted as the Commercial Counselor at the Indonesian Embassy in the Netherlands. 

Both died at very young age, my uncle died when he was only 49, my daddy a bit fortunate when he was 64. My grand father died when he was only 44 because of revolution against colonial Dutch, no one found his body until now, what we buried only his picture, his friend who happened to be saved by Indonesian guerrillas at that time told the family that he was seen to had been onslaught to death by other groups that were consisted of robbers and wild rebellion. My Grand father was a very well known rich man from Highland Karo, so presumably he had to be killed to stopped him from supporting the revolution.

What I can recall until now is how my uncle and my dad loved each other so much. They were always like two little kids when they met, they could sit together, talked, laughed, we all can see very clearly how they cared each other so dearly. They both  were our two pillars, very strong, very protected towards their children, very tough and hard working persons, never complain at any circumstances, even at a very low point of their life. 

Our parents taught  us, how to live in simplest way yet valuable to others and to our country. Regretfully however, none of their children could live in simplest way. We were all, included my cousins lived exactly, like excessive spoiled little kids ; and even until now, almost none us could live as fighters as our parents.  We could only sell our heritages one after another, until only very few lefts. None of us seems wanted to keep our parents legacy, to keep what lefts for our future generations. 

In sadness I write this article, with tears in my heart. I wish my siblings and cousins would read this article someday and aware how important love is in life, how important is, caring each other rather than quarreling, how important the togetherness and how important to be grateful to what God gives through our parents. Yes, our bodies is the symbol of love of our parents, the bodies and souls are the most important. As Christian we can rely to our believe that God will not leaves us all starves, yet He wanted us to work hard too, to respect each other and to love each other, so that we can leave peacefully and help the others.
I wish the fighting spirits of our parents would re-born in us and we can wake up as new person s again, full with love and full with the fighting spirit. I amen to that in Christ name.

In memory: My beloved uncle, aunt, mommy and daddy. In front of my uncle's villa in Berastagi, North Sumatra, Indonesia. After New Year, January, 1972 with Mount Sibayak as the background.

Family tomb in Kacaribu, Karo, Sumatra. Left, where my uncle and aunt rest in peace. In the middle we buried the picture of my grand father.

Here rest in peace my dearest mommy

SITTING ON THE PACIFIC RING OF FIRE: The Cause of Indonesia's Deadly Natural Disasters!
By: Neneng Tarigan, November 2010.
(Pictures and sources of information had been fully quoted from various reliable resources)

What is going to happened, if a country seats on the Pacific Ring of Fire? No country could determine where its geographical location would take place, so does in the case of Indonesia. Besides enjoying lot of benefits being born in the seismically-active “Pacific Ring of Fire, Indonesia should endure the negative impacts of it s geographical location.

Yes, Indonesia had enjoyed the scenery beauty by laying amid the Ring of Fire; the largest islands country with abundant natural resources yet the only country in the world that ought to stand natural threats and disasters.


The last decade has proven the facts, which natural disasters that Indonesia had to encounter, from landslides, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, storm, thunder, tsunami and any kind of natural disasters that we can hardly find in land nations. Indonesia, the sprawling archipelago of some 17,000 islands, which lies in the seismically-active “Pacific Ring of Fire”, had severely hits by devastating natural disasters since the Aceh tsunami.  Here are just some examples of them. 

THE ACEH TSUNAMI:
Nangroe Aceh Darussalam in the Northern Part of Sumatra, was the only province in Indonesia got the hardest hit by the December 26, 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. About 170,000 people died, and until now, the Province is still rebuilding homes and livelihoods that had been devastated by the disaster.

THE YOGYAKARTA EARTHQUAKE:
May 27, 2006, an earthquake rocked Yogyakarta and its surrounding areas with the power of 6.3 Richter Scale. An earthquake in May 2006 hit the provinces of Yogyakarta and Central Java island, killing more than 5,700 people and destroyed 280,000 homes.
THE PADALARANG EARTHQUAKE:
July 17, 2006, an earthquake measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale hits off the coast of West Java, Indonesia, at 15:19 local time. The earth quake center at the coordinate of 9,46’ SL – 107,19’ EL or about 120 km from Southern part of Cianjur District had caused 1 – 5 meter tide of tsunami that reached up to the area of Gunung Kidul and Bantul, Yogyakarta Region. 637 people died, 543 were wounded and 165 were still missing and unfounded; those who were missing might probably had been swept out to the ocean by the tide of the tsunami. 116.506 people homeless and held refuge, and the refugees camps scattered from West Java Province up to Central Java Province.

THE MALUKU VOLCANOES:
April 14, 2008, a volcano in North Maluku was put on Alert III status following an increase in activity over the past few days. Volcanic activity at Mt. Ibu in West Halmahera regency, North Maluku is causing tectonic and volcanic earthquakes. Meanwhile, two days before the activity of Mount Ibu, another mountain (Mount Gamalama) in Ternate, North Maluku, had been showing its activity by spewing thick smoke. The mountain Gamalama is one of five volcanoes in the province which is still active. End of 2007 it had also showed an increasing activity but did not erupt.The last major eruption of Mt. Gamalama occurred in 1983.
THE FOREST FIRES:
May 22, 2008, the haze which has been enveloping West Sumatra following the emergence of hot spots in a number of locations delayed the domestic and international flight schedules, not only in Indonesia but also interfered international flights schedules in Malaysia and Singapore. The hot season between April and October seldomly dried the forest and easily catch the forests into fire.

THE MALUKU EARTHQUAKE:
May 25, 2008, the 6.7 magnitude earthquake jolted Maluku Tenggara Barat district. The epicenter was detected in 7.41 degree southern latitude and 129.6 western longitude or about 194 km Southwest of Saumlaki city. The location of the quake was about 72 km below the sea level, so that it had not trigger tsunami.

THE SUMBAWA EARTHQUAKE
August 7, 2008, a strong earthquake of 6.6 on the Richter scale, damages houses on Indonesia’s Sumbawa island. The epicenter of the quake was 51 km (31.69 miles) Northeast of Sumbawa island at a depth of 10 km.

THE KALIMANTAN FLOOD
November 10, 2008 at least 4,547 houses in North Samarinda and Samarinda Ulu subdistricts, Kalimantan were inundated due to heavy rain and big flood.

THE CIANJUR LANDSLIDE:
November 14, 2008, ten people have been killed after a landslide triggered by heavy rain crushed parts of two villages in Indonesia. The landslide destroyed 30 houses in the Cianjur district of West Java.

THE GORONTALO EARTHQUAKE
November 14, 2008, a magnitude of 7.7 quake struck in the Gorontalo area of Sulawesi at a shallow depth of 10 km (6.2 miles). The second quake, at 1734 GMT, was 5.6 magnitude at a depth of 9.9 km (6.2 miles), 83 miles northwest of Gorontalo. No casualties reported.

THE PADANG EARTHQUAKE
About 5:00 pm on September 30th, a magnitude 7.6 earthquake struck just offshore of the town of Padang in Sumatra, Indonesia. The quake toppled buildings and started many landslides, smashing homes and swallowing up entire villages. The following day, As rescue workers arrived and residents tried their best to dig out and help the survivors, another unrelated quake with a magnitude of 6.6 struck less than 1,000 km south of the original epicenter. Each of the two quakes had at least one aftershock greater than 5.0 as well. Over 1,000 people are known to have died, an additional 3,000 still missing. October 5th, 2009, officials called off the search for survivors in Padang, and were focusing on caring for the living and coordinating with international relief agencies.

Hundreds of homes were swept away and numbers of people remain missing feared dead, with rescue workers unable to clear huge piles of debris due to shortages of heavy equipment. Experts said that a big landslides and flash flood will become more common in Indonesia due to a combination of climate change, land conversion, logging, mining and deforestation that contributes to landslides and flash floods. The government suggested that the main cause of the flood in Wasior was the overflowing water from two rivers that are located above Wasior. To my personal point of view, both sides were correct in this regard.
At least 148 people were killed. About 123 people were still missing and the chances of them being found alive is slim. They could have been buried under rocks or swept to the sea. About 700 people were injured, 172 badly. Those killed had reportedly been drowned and swept away by the powerful waters along with uprooted trees, rocks and debris.

THE MENTAWAI TSUNAMI:
October 25 2010, a 7,2 Richter scale of earthquake hit the islands of Mentawai, Sumatera. More than 600 people died, thousands were homeless and hundreds are still missing and the chances of them being found alive is also slim. They could have been buried under rocks or swept to the sea.

THE DEATH OF THE FIERY MOUNTAIN (MERAPI)
by: Neneng Tarigan, 7 November 2007
This morning, 7 November 2010, again Mount Merapi unleashing hot ash up to 6000 meters high according to 09.00 a.m news of Metro TV. The current wind blew the hot cloud into direction of Magelang where the Borobudur Temple is located. The Maguwoharjo Stadium in Yogyakarta where more than 15.000 evacuees take refuge seemed much more in order and clean now, because according the schedule, Madame Yudoyono the First Lady of the Republic, would pay a visit to this refugees camp this morning from her shelter at the Presidential Palace in Yogyakarta, not far from the stadium.
Well, I am thinking, how nice would the first family be if they could take shelter in any of other damage areas of natural disasters in this country without thinking too much on their safety, even there were limited facilities, much less than a convenient palace once in their live time. And how lucky were the people in this country if Indonesia had ever has first family like the one we always dream upon who would be closed with the people while the peoples are in the danger and required thorough attention from their leaders. Well, perhaps that would only be in our dreams forever.
No experts could predict, when the fiery mountain active blasts would stop, but the fact is the beautiful slopes of Merapi is now a deceased area, that required months and years to recovered. The Javanese people especially the peasants and the lower class workers are quite known as a hard working people, as it had been proved since centuries ago with the existence of Borobudur and Prambanan temple. They can make it this time again, as they have done it in 2006 after an earthquake had strongly hit Yogyakarta and Central of Java! May God bless my country always and forever. Amen.

Merapi is Java’s most potent mystical symbols of life and is truly one of the world’s most beautiful mountains. It was revered understandably for centuries as a spectacular sight no matter how many time one sees it. For a break from punishing tropical heat of Yogya, race up to the quiet highland resort of Kaliurang only one our by car on good road., refreshingly cool, one can easily spend several days here relaxing.
Merapi Trekking
There are at least three good tracks for climbing the Merapi. They are:
* The Kaliadem/Kinahrejo track on the southern side
* The Babadan track on the western side
* The Selo track on the northern side.
The Selo track is regarded as the easiest and safest, certainly the most suitable or beginner climbers. Those with experience in climbing will need about four to five hours to reach the summit.

If we want to enjoy sunrise from the peak, it is recommended we start our scent at about 1 a.m. People using the Selo track for this can spend the night before at lalangan village or Blumbangsari village, where residents rent their rooms and can provide guides for the climbers.
The Babadan track is the most direct of the three, but is not usually recommended,mainly because most of Merapi’s volcanic activity over the last decade as taken place on this side of the mountain.
The top of the volcano can be observed from a distance from Turi Village, Sleman. For a better view, a visit to Plawangan, the observatory resort, can be reached by walking up a pathway from Kaliurang for about an hour. In the observatory resort, visitor can use a binocular to observe the top of the volcano. The best time to elish the beauty of Merapi is approximately around the sunrise moment, at six to e ight in the morning. Another place for a better view, is Ketep Pass. It’s ocated on Magelang Regency, where Borobudur is also located.

Borobudur temple built in the eighth century by the Cailendra dynasty, is believed to have been derived from the Sanskrit words “Vihara Buddha Uhr” the Buddhist Monastery on the hill. A main dome is located at the center of the top platform, and is surrounded by seventy-two Buddha statues seated inside perforated stupa. The monument is both a shrine to the Lord Buddha and a place for Buddhist pilgrimage. The journey for pilgrims begins at the base of the monument and follows a path circum-ambulating the monument while ascending to the top through the three levels of Buddhist cosmology, namely, Kamadhatu (the world of desire); Rupadhatu (the world of forms); and Arupadhatu (the world of formless). Borobudur contains approximately 2,670 individual bas reliefs (1,460 narrative and 1,212 decorative panels), which cover the facades and balustrades. The total relief surface is 2,500 square meters (26,909.8 sq ft) and they are distributed at the hidden foot (Kamadhatu) and the five square platforms (Rupadhatu).
The Borobudur was in danger of collapsing as its stone statues and stone cancer, moss and lichen affected bas-reliefs. But, the monument has been completely restored and was officially opened by the President on 23rd February 1983. The restoration took eight years to complete, funded by the Government of Indonesia with aid from the UNESCO and donations from private citizens as well as from foreign governments. 

Another famous temple between Merapi and Yogyakarta is Prambanan. The Prambanan temple is the biggest and the most beautiful Hindu's temple. Located 17 kilometers east of Yogyakarta, locally known as the Loro Jongrang temple, or the temple of the “Slender Virgin” it is reputed to be the biggest and most beautiful Hindu Temple in Indonesia. The temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The popular legend of Lara Jonggrang is what connects the site of the Ratu Boko Palace, the origin of the Durga statue in northern cell/chamber of the main shrine, and the origin of the Sewu temple complex nearby. The legend tells of the story about Prince Bandung Bondowoso who fell in love with Princess Lara Jonggrang, the daughter of King Boko. But the princess rejected his proposal of marriage because Bandung Bondowoso had killed King Boko and ruled her kingdom. Bandung Bondowoso insisted on the union, and finally Lara Jonggrang was forced to agree for a union in marriage, but she posed one impossible condition: Bandung must build her a thousand temples in only one night.
The Prince entered into meditation and conjured up a multitude of spirits (demons) from the earth. Helped by supernatural beings, he succeeded in building 999 temples. When the prince was about to complete the condition, the princess woke her palace maids and ordered the women of the village to begin pounding rice and set a fire in the east of the temple, attempting to make the prince and the spirits believe that the sun was about to rise. As the cocks began to crow, fooled by the light and the sounds of morning time, the supernatural helpers fled back into the ground. The prince was furious about the trick and in revenge he cursed Lara Jonggrang to stone. She became the last and the most beautiful of the thousand statues. According to the traditions, the unfinished thousandth temple created by the demons become the Sewu temple compounds nearby (Sewu means “thousands” in Javanese), and the Princess is the image of Durga in the north cell of the Shiva temple at Prambanan, which is still known as Lara Jonggrang or Slender Virgin.


MERAPI AFTER THE 2010 ERUPTIONS
As Quoted from sources : AP and Kompas.com

Indonesia, a vast archipelago of 235 million people, is prone to earthquakes and volcanoes because it sits along the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” a horseshoe-shaped string of faults that lines the Pacific Ocean.

While Friday’s 5 November 2010 explosion was the largest in volume in a century. An eruption at Merapi in 1930 killed many more — 1,300. (Note: Some data range between 1000-2000 casualties)  Even that toll pales in comparison to other volcanoes in the region: Indonesia’s Krakatoa killed at least 36,000 people in 1883, in an eruption that could be heard 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) away and blackened skies region-wide for months.
When the Philippines’ Mount Pinatubo exploded in 1991 after a 500-year slumber, about 800 people died as the billions of tons of volcanic debris poured from the cone, erasing entire farm communities and altering the world’s climate.  The May 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens caused the volcano’s north flank to collapse, triggering the largest landslide ever recorded. The blast killed 57 people, flattened 230 square miles (596 square kilometers) of forests and blew 1,300 feet (400 meters) off the peak.

Merapi’s latest round of eruptions began Oct. 26, followed by more than a dozen other powerful blasts and thousands of tremors.  With each new eruption, scientists and officials have steadily pushed the villagers who live along Merapi’s fertile slopes farther from the crater.
But after initially predicting earlier eruptions would ease pressure under the magma dome, experts who have spent a lifetime studying the volcano now say the don’t know what to expect. Scientists can study the patterns of volcanoes, but their eruptions are essentially unpredictable, as Merapi’s  increasingly intense blasts have proved.
On Friday, the towering plumes of ash rained dust on windshields of cars 300 miles (480 kilometers) away, although a rain near the mountain in the afternoon turned much of it to sludge. Bursts of hot clouds occasionally interrupted aid efforts, with rescuers screaming, “Watch out! Hot cloud!”

The eruption released 1,765 million cubic feet (50 million cubic meters) of volcanic material, making it the biggest in at least a century as plumes of smoke continued to shoot up more than 30,000 feet (10,000 meters). 
Soldiers pulled at least 78 bodies from homes and streets blanketed by ash up to a foot (30 centimeters) deep Friday, raising the overall toll to 122, according to the National Disaster Management Agency.
With bodies found in front of houses and in streets, it appeared that many of the villagers died from the blistering gas while trying to escape.
The 1,400-degree Fahrenheit (750-degree Celsius) heat — were carried away on stretchers following the first big explosion just before midnight. More than 150 injured people — with burns, respiratory problems, broken bones and cuts — waited to be treated at the tiny Sardjito hospital in Yogyakarta where the bodies piled up in its morgue, and two other hospitals.

For several days Borobudur are closed to visitors as the ashes covered the whole compound up to 3 cm thick; and today 6 November 2010, all airports in Java island included Jakarta airport are forced to close for several hours due to volcanic dust that has scattered all over the sky.


Cangkringan, Sleman turned into ashes, while the rescue team keep on searching for the victims

The slopes of beautiful Merapi is now turned into ashes and mud, and no experts could predict when the fiery mountain eruptions would stop.

YOGYAKARTA, MOUNT MERAPI AND THE LAST DAY IN THE OFFICE
By: Neneng Tarigan.

I have already decided in mind that the last day I serve my office as a civil servant, I have to go to one of my most favorite place in Indonesia, Yogyakarta. I love this city because people in the city are very committed with their cultural value that is a real Javanese culture. This city is not only best known as always keeping up the Javanese tradition but also as “the City of Student” or “Kota Pelajar”. Many students from all over Indonesia studied and graduated from various universities here such as from Gajah Mada University, Islam University of Indonesia Sunan Kalijaga, Universitas Sebelas Maret, Christian University Duta Wacana, ASRI or the Academy of Fine Arts just few examples of reputable Indonesian Higher Education institutes here around. Many intellectuals, researchers, professors as well as foreign students graduated or at least join a further studies in Yogyakarta, most popular subject among others are: cultural, arts, medical, law and agriculture.

People here live very peacefully and governed by a Sultan as the Governor of Yogyakarta Special Region; the recent one is Sultan Hamengku Buwono X.

The city or Yogyakarta existed since 1755, after the division of Mataram Kingdom into the Sultanate of Yogyakarta and the Sultanate of Surakarta (Solo). Yogyakarta is geographically located in between three most important international gateways of Indonesia, Jakarta, Surabaya and Denpasar (Bali). The four cities are well connected by various kind of transportation such as bus, train, air plane from and to almost all air ports of Indonesia. Chartered and scheduled flights from foreign countries could also landed at Yogyakarta airport Adi Sutjipto. Yogyakarta is also the only big city in Indonesia, which still has traditional Becak (rickshaw-style) as its public transportation and these kind of transportation facilities, including foods and hotels are available at a very reasonable price and that attract people from all over Indonesia and overseas to come and spend longer time in Yogyakarta rather than other cities in Indonesia. 

The demonstrators and the becaks.
The key attraction of Yogyakarta is Kraton (the Sultanate Palace). It is the center of Yogya's traditional life and despite the advance of modernity; it still emanates the spirit of refinement, which has been the hallmark of Yogya's art for centuries. This vast complex of decaying buildings was built in the 18th century, and is actually a walled city within the city with luxurious pavilions and in which the current Sultan still resides.
The Keraton
The average daily temperature of Yogyakarta range between 26 and 30 degrees Celsius with its maximum 35 degrees. Average humidity is 74% or range between 65% and 84%. Yogyakarta has a tropical climate with only two seasons, that is rainy and dry. Usually the wet season begin in September to April, and the dry season begin from end of April till end of August. The monthly rain falls in Yogyakarta varies between 3mm and 496mm in which those above 300mm take place during the month of January up to April. The heaviest rainfall usually occurs in February while the lowest commonly happens between May and October. Average annually rainfall is about 1,900mm.
Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta (Yogyakarta Special Region) is one of Indonesia's 33 provinces; and one of the most densely populated area of Indonesia. This region is located at the edge of an active volcanic mountain, Mount Merapi that had been erupted several times. The biggest eruption was in 1672, killed about 3,000 people, the following eruption in 1997 and 2001 no casualties were recorded, however eruption in 2006 claimed to kill 2 people and the current eruption that still occurs from October up to November 2010 had taken life of 37 people including the key holder of Mount Merapi, Mbah Maridjan.
There was a mystical story about the key holder of Merapi, Mbah Maridjan or grandpa Maridjan. He was entrusted by The Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX (the father of the current Sultan Hamengku Buwono X) to watch over the volcano's spirits, dispatching his assistant to go to the crater and remind people about when and what the spirit of Mount Merapi wants. According to the Javanese traditional believe, the Sultan himself should maintain the harmony between the Merapi, the Keraton and the Southern Sea. In that order the Sultan has to assigned the Merapi and the Southern Sea Watcher respectively and marry with the Queen of Southern Sea (Ratu Roro Kidul) and regularly serve an offering (“Sesajen” consisted of foods, flowers etc) to the crater of Merapi, so that his people will live in peace and bless with foods and all kind of necessities (usually agricultural products) from the fertilize Merapi soil. But the current Sultan is a very modern Sultan and a devoted Islam. He is a monogamous and has no concubine (selir) although this is allowed and a bit compulsory in Javanese royal tradition to have concubines. He keeps up the Javanese tradition on the offerings, but I hardly believe that he keeps the tradition of marrying the Ratu Roro Kidul or do the offering as to worshiping the Mount Merapi. He did that just to keep the tradition alive but at the same time gradually build the awareness of his people that this dogma is not a Religion. Besides of that not all of his people are Islam, some still hold the Javanese Believe the so called Aliran Kepercayaan or A Stream Believer that is very close to the believe of Javanese tradition; and some of course hold other religions such as Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, etc.

As a modern Sultan it is obvious that the Sultan Hamengku Buwono X relied more on the seismologists prediction about Mount Merapi than Mbah Maridjan prediction. He even clarified publicly that the function of mbah Maridjan was not as a Merapi Watcher or the guard of Merapi or the Key Holder of Mount Merapi, but the function of Mbah Maridjan was to prepare at any time if the Palace or the Keraton has a regular ceremony such as the offering to the Merapi Mountain. However, many people of Merapi and mbah Maridjan himself believe that he is the guard and the key holder of Merapi as entrusted by Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX, and that assignment has never been withdrawn till the death of the previous Sultan, meaning that he still keep and has to maintain that assignment and trust respectfully for what ever cost even with his own life.
Therefore, when the eruption occurred at about 06.00 pm in the evening of 26 October 2010, Mbah Maridjan was among dozens of villagers who died because of believing in his decision not to leave the mountain. He gives his life to abide by what has been assigned to him by the previous Sultan, was to guard the Mountain, and would not leave that though he has to sacrifice his life! He died in his prayer to God the Almighty since he himself was a very devoted Islam and a very humble man who very much in tact with the pure Javanese tradition. What a story....
Mbah Maridjan

There was a disappointment from the current Sultan, because the Sultan has a very strong believe that the accident should not have taken life of his people if they just abide by the advice of the seismologists or the government officials on the danger of Merapi eruption rather than abide by the advice of Mbah Maridjan. So, when the Merapi began spewing its 600 to 2000 degree gases down the mountain's slopes in about 200 miles speed per hour and to the sky, no one from Mbah Maridjan Village that located just 4 kilometers from the crater had enough time to escape and run away from the disaster.
Actually, a week before the first current eruption (26 October 2010) all routes to Mount Merapi were closed to public as the alert status of one of the most active volcanoes in the world was raised to “standby,” just one level below a full-blown eruption. All residents on the slopes of the mountain including Mbah Maridjan had been advised sternly to stay outside at least 10 kilometers radius from the peak of Merapi and to stay away from around the rivers since the lava may spew out at any time and flow along the river and would cease them away. Only authorized personnel could enter the alert area to monitor the observation posts that located in certain areas but not too close to the peak of the mountain.
Nevertheless, how can we blame the people who were not willing to leave their homes and took refuges. Experiences shows that Mbah Maridjan seemed to be correct when he advised people not to leave the mountain in 1997, 2001 and 2006 eruptions, the last one then brought the Mbah into a celebrity life in promoting one of the energizing product. He didn't use the money for himself but donated most of it to his poor neighborhood and the mosque that was enacted besides his home which is now only dust, the debris and the ruins. Further more, how can we blame the peasants and the poor who were afraid to leave their only huts, their grounds and cattle, they are all too poor to live without it. Experiences shows they get only a pity when they loose the properties, there will be no reimbursement or guarantee, let alone to get back part of their belongings. For them there would be indifferent whether they are running away or staying. Lack of healthy water and sanitation as well as lack of foods and medicines is always happens in the refugees camps....that is another nightmare for the refugees......

Before I left Jakarta, heading to Yogyakarta on the 27 October 2010, I already aware about the danger of Mount Merapi eruptions, but since I have already booked a hotel and the plane ticket, I was really reluctant to cancel it, let alone knowing the fact that Yogyakarta located 40 kilometers from Mount Merapi. When I arrived in my hotel room, I can feel a little tremor, according to the news, since 22 October 2010, deep volcanic earthquakes occurred seven times, shallow volcanic earthquake 34 times, multiphase volcanic earthquakes 321 times and lava splashed 93 times.

On Thursday 28 October 2008 in the morning, I and my daughter Angie went for a shopping in Malioboro the most well known shopping compound in Yogyakarta, about 200 meters from Jentra Hotel where we stayed. We went to a traditional market Bering Harjo to look for some Batiks, since Batik is Indonesian design pattern that has been acknowledge by the United Nation as one of Indonesian national heritage. After shopping, we walked around and took some pictures of interesting spots, such as the Presidential Palace, the monuments of Yogyakarta Kembali or the Return of Yogyakarta, the traditional market Bering Harjo and the student demonstrators who strongly complain on the poor government service in the educational programs that not even pro to the poor! They also complain on the slowness of the government to tackle on the Merapi victims and the Tsunami earthquake victims in Mentawai islands of West Sumatra that happens almost coincidentally with the eruptions of Mount Merapi! Well, I don't blame the students for these, because I totally agreed with the students that the government never learns from previous experiences and revise the educational programs and victims of natural disasters in the right and appropriate ways. I donate a bit for the Merapi victims through the students activities, I don't want to go to Merapi area, since I might have interfered with the rescuing programs that still continue up today. Some foreign tourists took the opportunity of approaching nearby the area for filming the rather scarce occurrences. Well, they have every right to do that although that was not a good idea at all.

The demonstration in all over Yogya on the Hari Sumpah Pemuda (the Youth Swear Day) which was coincided with the eruptions of Mount Merapi

I returned back to my hotel room at about 01.00 pm, but Angie had decided to went out again strolling around Malioboro to find a little souvenirs for her siblings.
At about 04.00 in the afternoon I heard a very strong boom, and a big quake shake me for at least a second. From the third floor of my hotel room I saw the mountain far across my bedroom window spew a very big smoke and fire, I didn't realized that it was Merapi that exploded, because according to the taxi driver, we can't see Merapi from Yogyakarta, but it was indeed Merapi that I saw and what a pity was I didn't take my camera to shoot and recording the occurrence.
When Angie arrived from her shopping, I told her what I saw that I am now convince we can see Merapi from our room; so the next morning and afternoon of 29 October 2010, I was able to record the Merapi activities on that particular date as you can see in the pictures below.


The hot cloud of Merapi, taken from my hotel's room from 40 km distance

At around 01.00 am of 30 October 2009, I felt so difficulty breathing, I can't sleep and felt so uncomfortably like tons of bricks pressing my diaphragm and stopped me from breathing, so I asked Angie just to put some balm at my back and I used inhaler to release my chocking nose. After few hours it helps and I can sleep a bit.
At about 09.00 am when we were having breakfast, I saw all the roofs turned to white, I told Angie that it was Merapi's dust that covered all over the roofs and the streets around. She hardly believe it, because she never saw that before. Well, I saw that kind of dust once when I returned to my home town Berastagi, North Sumatra in last September 2010, while Mount Sinabung just erupted, so I was right in recognizing the dust of Mount Merapi by then.
Knowing, that we were about going out, the receptionist gave us some masks; and yes, almost all of the whole part of Yogyakarta was covered with dust of Merapi about 1 cm thick. Eventually, Merapi was re-erupted several times between 01.00 to 08.00 am on 30 October 2008. People then were all busy cleaning their houses, gardens and cars, because the dust is so dangerous for the breathing system.

I returned back to Jakarta on Saturday evening 30 October 2010. All passengers of Garuda Indonesia Airline had to fly not from Yogyakarta, but moved and took the Garuda flights from Solo about 60 km from Yogyakarta to avoid dusts and the 2000 centigrade Celsius degree of the Merapi's smoke or hot cloud that dangerous for the air planes safety.
I arrived back in Jakarta at 07.00 pm in the evening carrying various emotion from sadness of watching the Merapi and the earthquakes victims in both sides Merapi and Mentawai Islands from the television news; and a little relief that I and my daughter Angie still safe and luckier in not to experience those horrible tragedies.
Indonesia's deadly volcano Mount Merapi still produced another powerful eruption on Nov 1, at around 10.04 am, spewing superheated clouds into the air. Mount Merapi produced two intense eruptions; on the 26th of October 2010, the pyroclastic flows killed around 37 people and on Sunday October 31, a strong explosion that had never been occurred earlier was heard. According to the seismologist experts, the eruption will continue to occur along November and it is difficult to predict the power since Merapi still keep so many lava and other materials that need to spew out from inside of its magma. It was predicted that this time Mount Merapi would produce greater eruption than those in 1997, 2001 and 2006.
In my tenure as the Head of Bureau of Trade and International Cooperation at the Office of the Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia, I feel deep disappointment that there is not a single word of farewell and grateful from the government or the Vice President to what we the pensioners have done and dedicated to the government along the tenure of our career. Instead of complaining, I feel grateful to God the Almighty that although I receive now only less than US 300 for my monthly salary as a pensioner, but I am still much luckier than those Merapi and earthquakes victims, who lost not only their life, their love ones and their properties, but most importantly a brighter future since they lost almost everything......
I still condemn the government for not taking a good care of the poor and the victims of natural disasters appropriately, and in still in-just in punishing the corruption but rather let the corruptions remain un-touch and release in peace. However, what can we expect from the fact that Indonesia is the most corrupt country in Asia? Expecting a change is only in a dream......

INCREDIBLE INDIA?

INCREDIBLE INDIA?
By: Neneng Tarigan
BSD City, 7 September 2010.

Visiting India especially the Taz Mahal is always in my dream. In my childhood we used to have calendars with pictures about interesting places all over the world. Watching the pictures I got the feeling as if I were living there once in the past, because those pictures seemed so close to my heart. Some pictures were about few places in my country but most of them were about interesting and historical places abroad. I wonder if reincarnation is a true story, but as a Christian I would rather trust, that was only because my heart and soul was extremely possessed by the beauty of the places and the history behind it, that was why I feel so close with the pictures. As it proved, I was lucky to have been visited more than 40 countries in the world.

It was 09.00 pm when I landed at Indira Gandhi International, the new airport of New Delhi, India, on 30th  August 2010. The airport is huge and it has just been operational since early of August 2010. The size maybe equal to Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok and the floor was totally covered by wall to wall carpet like Changi airport of Singapore. The security check was so tight, may be it happens after India has a very bad experience with the Mumbai terrorist attack. (Mumbai is the second largest city of India)


Upon arrival, I was fetched up by the Embassy people who then brought me with Toyota old van 1990 to Ramada Hotel which I booked through the internet. It took about 30 minutes from the airport to the hotel and my eyes caught by the glitter of the road studs. I also observed that many fully equipped military guards stand between the airport to the center of New Delhi. Later, I knew that they guarded the city day and night. Incredible!

When I arrived, there were so many cars queuing at the hotel gate, a wedding party of the rich had taken place in the hotel, so I asked the driver to just drop me, so that we would not blocked other cars to get in.

After passing the scanning machines, I went inside then submitted the hotel voucher and asked for the room. Unfortunately however, the receptionist told me that I was not registered in that hotel but to another Ramada Hotel in Gurgaon about 2 hours from Ramada Hotel New Delhi.

I showed them that what was written on the voucher is clearly Ramada Gurgaon New Delhi, and since I had never been to India before, I presumed that the one I booked was totally correct, which is the one that I stand now; I had no idea, that there are two different Ramada hotel in Delhi. (Well, if they assumed that Gurgaon which is 2 hours from Delhi is also in Delhi)

Feeling tired and sleepy, I then asked them whether I can simply move to this hotel instead of staying at the other Ramada in Gurgaon, of course with additional cost I don't mind. Again, according to the hotel management I can't do that, simply because the two Ramada is only the same hotel chain under the same franchise system and name, but different ownership. How incredible! They are very strict with the rule here, the cancellation meant that all of the booking cost for 4 days stay which I have already made with Ramada Gurgaon that cost USD 400.- will automatically deducted from my credit card and gone, if I stay in Ramada New Delhi! (Well, that is the rule)

After long arguments, they advice me to use a hotel taxi to bring me to Ramada Gurgeon. I said: “Okay no problem, how much would the price be?” and then they said:”7000 rupees or about USD 170” I answered:”Well, that will be the problem, just get me another taxi not from this hotel.” They nodded, then I got an outside taxi with the price of only 900 rupees” Can you imagine the price different just in a minute? Well, that was incredible!

After about one hour drive, I then arrived at Ramada Hotel Gurgaon. There the manager said: "You can't cancel your booking". So, I had to stay in that hotel for the 4 nights I booked in the first place. It was already 01.00 am. Feeling tired and disappointed, I could do nothing than to accept their policy. Here I am, in the middle of nowhere; I then called the embassy personnel to inform them the situation and where I am about. Of course the embassy staff offered me the transportation facility, but knowing the distance and the fact that I had already chartered a taxi for pick and drop during I stay in the hotel, I gently refuse the offer and ask them to only fetch and drop me when I was about going back to Indonesia later.

Before sleeping, I asked the hotel manager for the free internet facility as they promoted in the web . We worked on it, and after one hour my laptop get connected with the internet, but with very low signal or meaning no connection at all! Another incredible story.

Gurgaon itself is a new industrialized modern city in the outskirt of New Delhi. It will take only 45 to 90 minutes from Ramada Hotel Gurgaon to Ramada Hotel New Delhi, depends on the traffic. There will be a small metro train station located in front of the Ramada Gurgaon once it is finished in early 2011. The Ramada Gurgaon Hotel is a small 8 stories 3.5 star hotel, built about 2 years ago. It is a very clean hotel and with a very helpful and polite staff too. I had no complain at all about the hotel condition. It is a good hotel to stay, especially for businessmen or investors who have business in Gurgaon; and else the infrastructure facilities in India is good or at least better than in Indonesia, so almost every part of India is reachable.

The next morning, I went to the meeting with the chartered taxi as recommended by the hotel manager. It was a small car with a Nepalis driver named Tapha who only speak a little English. No smile in his face, he seemed full with anger. he didn't even greet me a good morning but just drove and murmured, may be because I was a bit late for our appointment that morning.

Arriving at the toll gate, Tapha asked me to pay 20 rupees for the toll. Getting furious, I sternly said to him: “You know what, why are you so impolite to your costumer? I supposed to pay only 800 rupees for pick and drop, but the manager then told me to add 500 rupees more, for toll , miles, parking and bla bla bla. I have already agreed about that and now with your long face you force me to pay more and more. Why don't you just check to the hotel manager?” He called and checked and then with grim he said: “Okay, okay”

On the way to the meeting, I asked Tapha whether he can stop the taxi at Ramada Hotel Delhi, just to check, whether the meeting will be taken place at Ramada Delhi or Le Meridien. Actually they are at the same direction, and we could pass Ramada Delhi before Le Meridien, however he said: “No, no, no, miles, miles, miles”. “Okay” I said: “no problem, just drop me at Le Meridien”. (Ghost, it was incredible!)

At Le Meridien, I check, whether the venue of the meeting is in their hotel or in Ramada Delhi. They politely check and inform me that, it is not in their hotel, so I phoned the committee and they told me that the venue is at Ramada Delhi.

From Le Meridien I walked about 3 minutes to Ramada Delhi, because the two hotels are very closed by. The problem is, no one at Ramada Delhi knows where the meeting would take place when I asked them at the night when I firstly arrived where the meeting would be. (Another incredible story!)

In the afternoon, I called the manager of Ramada Gurgaon to ask Tapha to fetch me at 05.30 pm; and there Tapha came with a man whom he called his body guard. They both have very strong sweating smell which made me almost choked to death. I just sat quietly till I arrived at Ramada Gurgaon and paid Tapha 1300 rupees (+ USD 32) for the transportation I made with him that day.

The next morning, Tapha was totally 100% changed. He came alone and became so very polite and full with smile. He asked me to talk to his wife who is Indian and has two master degree and of course she speaks very fluent English much better than me. After talking in the phone to his wife then I chat with Tapha and from his broken English I knew that he has one beautiful 9 years old daughter and 3 of his siblings married to different nationalities such as married to a Malaysian, a Kuwaiti, a Saudi Arabian and he himself married to a beautiful and smart Indian lady. Well, that was really a beautiful incredible story.

Along the way back from Ramada Delhi to Ramada Gurgaon I sang along with Tapha a beautiful Indian song entitled Kuch-Kuch Hota Hae which is originally sung by a famous Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan. It was like an ice breaking song that we both enjoy. We sang and dance along the way and every car just looked at us dancing and singing and beep us to be careful because we disturbed other cars to pass by.

It was a pity because the next day, I had to go with the embassy van to visit the famous Taz Mahal, and the day after that I had to go back to my beautiful country Indonesia. So no more Tapha.

It takes 4 hours to go to the Taz Mahal from Ramada Gurgeon. I had to pay about 12,000.- rupees (+USD 300.-) if I use the hotel taxi (not Tapha taxi), or I pay only USD 75.- per person if I use tourist bus, that is already included lunch and entrance tickets. With the embassy car the two of us (me and my colleague) pay only USD 150.- for the tip, since 2nd September was a holiday in all over India as they celebrating the Khrisna day.

Along the way to Taz Mahal, we pass by the country sides. They are all green but also dusty and rocky. The Northern parts of India are quite dusty because they are close to Gobi desert, one of the largest desert in the world. Sometimes, we can see sky scrapers enacted in the middle of nowhere. The way they built them there were to create equal distribution of wealth across the states.

Not many houses exist along the way. With 1.2 million people, India seems so quiet. Most Indians seems tend to live in the cities rather than in the country sides. Well that is my observation at glance and that may not be 100% correct. (*PS: Later I found from my Indian friend that only + 35% Indians living in the cities)

The road to Agra is full with trucks. Well, I am sorry to say that most of the trucks or vehicles in India seemed old but still work well. The bus there all surrounded by concrete bars, so it seems like a jail bus to me, but they say it was because India has a large poor population and the majority of them use buses as main transportation, so in order to avoid them from falling out of the bus, they put bars in all of the windows, so that they would be more secure inside. The famous public vehicle is the three wheels Bajaj. (We also have Bajaj in Indonesia, as one of our public transportation in the cities. We imported a lot from India, but the size of the Indonesian Bajaj is smaller than the Indian one). What amazed me is the Indian Bajaj fit for 12 persons and still moving, whereas in Indonesia may be for 6 or 7 person can fully pack in one roof. Wow, another incredible story!

Agra is one of the cities in Uttar Pradesh (UP) state of India. UP has about 130 million people, who live in trade, crafting, agriculture and mining. The majority of Agra people is Moslem, but they seem so poor, or at least that was I observed along the way. The Taz Mahal built by King Shah Jahan (a Moslem King) in 17 century as a dedication to his most beloved queen Mumtaz. (The King himself has + 200 wives, according to our driver). Incredible! It took 22 years to build such a magnificent and beautiful landmark. As everyone knows, Mumtaz died when delivering her 14th baby much earlier before the Taz Mahal itself finished.

The king himself then murdered by his own son who disagreed with his royal father lavish live and plan to built another Taz Mahal for himself. If you go to Taz Mahal compound, there is no other Taz Mahal or the black Taz Mahal around. Every building in Taz Mahal compound was built asymmetrically and in harmony with its surrounding. The buildings erected in the edge of the river, so it has incredibly beautiful natural landscape in itself.

Made of first class marble and crafted and decorated with semi precious stones such as Lapis Lazuli , Malahit etc, it makes Taz Mahal one of the world expensive and grandeur royal tomb ever exist man made!

The King and his Queen buried in the ground of Taz Mahal. What we can see in the first floor or the entrance is the replica of their tombs. The entrance fee is 750 rupees for an adult, that is included a bottle of small mineral water and a pair of wet shoe cover since the temperature around Agra could reach up to 50 centigrade degree Celsius we need the shoe cover to stand the heat. No chewing gum allowed into the Taz also no pictures taken inside the building in order to maintain the color of the stone. The marble wall itself is translucent, it gives white color in the morning, yellow to light orange in the afternoon and blue in the evening. When we pointed out our light or lit the matches to the wall, the light can go through the wall, so it is magnificently incredible!

There are many professional photographer around the The Taz Mahal, so we don't have to worry if we forget to bring our camera along. It will costs us only 700 rupees for ten pictures, so its no money at all considering the professional result we could get. The pictures will turn to be very fantastic!

On the way back to the hotel, our tour guide, the one who has been recommended by the embassy, lead us to the handicraft shop, who sells some souvenirs made of translucent marble. The ancestors of the handcraft men were the one who crafted the Taz Mahal, so according to our guide they produce only high quality handicrafts, but the price is extremely expensive, especially for a civil servant like me. I bought the cheapest one, not so nice, but it cost me already USD 150.- only for a simple marble plate and small elephant crafts. Gee...that was only some I could bring from India since I had a condense meeting and must commute every day from Gurgaon to the meeting venue in New Delhi. I didn't even know how New Delhi actually looks, but I thanks God and my government and myself because of the small mistake I made in booking the hotel, I was then able to commute and see how the real India looks and I could take some pictures which you can see in this website.

I return home on 3rd September to Indonesia and stayed over night in Bangkok Thailand. I bring along a beautiful and incredible memory of India which I will treasure the beauty of India until I die.

PENGEMIS TUA

Tertatih ia meluruk jalanan panas ibu kota
Tubuh tua lunglai... terpanggang terik matahari..terseling hujan ..debu bau-bau sampah kali kotor metroopolitan kota Jakarta...
Terbakar kaki melepuh letih berjalan... terseok....merambat dia melirik kanan kiri menghindar padatnya manusia lalu lalang berkenderaan kencang bak tanpa kendali....
Kaki tua .... sesekali terhenti mengadah tangan mengharap koin dan lembar-lembar kumuh para dermawan baik hati ..... yang muncul tiba-tiba kala bulan-bulan suci menaungi negeri tercinta.

Hujan deras kuyup mengguyur tubuh tua tanpa sanak ....
Tangan kurus ...kotor merambah.... mencari koin nan jatuh tumpah terserak dibawah genangan hujan lumpur kolong jembatan...
Mata tua terpejam terciprat air hujan nan terlindas mobil mewah para tuan dan cukong-cukong yang sibuk asyik bercanda dengan kekasih gelapnya.........

Tanpa henti tangan tua meraba.. mencari koin koin lembar -lembar kumuh yang terkumpul sejak dini pagi tadi ...
Tubuh gemetar menahan lapar tanpa sentuhan sebutir nasi ditengah negara swasembada pangan yang bernama Indonesia...........
Tiba-tiba napas terhenti.... ia terhujam terhenyak terhempas tergelepak merintih meregang dan melepas nyawa tubuh tua lemas tak berdaya terkena senggolan tronton penuh muatan pangan hari raya..........

Tiada lagi ....senyum miris sang pengemis itu di bumi ini.......
Dia hanyalah seorang dari pengemis-pengemis tua tanpa identitas jelas ....walau tetap manusia yang hidup di bumi Indonesia.................
Dia hanya....lah segelintir ....manusia miskin dari mereka yang punya nasib serupa....hidup tua.... miskin tanpa terpelihara.... dinegeri Indonesia dimana kaum tua papa harusnya dihidupi oleh negara.........

Entah....dia pergi dengan damai.....,tapi ia terlepas dari bebannya,.....terlepas dari beban negara......,terlepas dari beban manusia.....dibumi Indonesia tercinta........ditengah kejamnya ibu kota........ditengah kemewahan pejabat, petinggi negara, ditengah mata hartawan dan orang-orang kaya yang seharusnya syarat pada kenyataan yang terjadi di masyarakat kita..............

Akhirnya semua tetap diam bungkam...menutup mata dan telinga... sampai saat pemilu nanti ....dimana nasib seperti pengemis tua..... baru akan berarti. dan suaranya akan didengar dan terdengar sampai lorong-lorong redup gedung mewah para pejabat negara, para cukong dan koruptor yang berlimbah ruah dengan harta... ditengah masyarakat yang penuh rintihan dan air mata.......

PUISI KATA HATI

Begitu banyak mereka yang berjuang dengan diam...
Mereka bekerja keras tanpa pamrih dan ketenaran nama...
Mereka bekerja dalam bisu dan keheningan tanpa huru hara.... tetapi mereka bekerja dan tetap bekerja dengan sungguh-sungguh.......... berjuang dan berdedikasi menurut kata hati..........

Oooh...sucinya cita-cita mereka bagi bangsa dan negara yang tercinta ini...
menangis didalam hati melihat bangsa masih banyak terhenyak tergeletak merana...
Sementara mata para pejuang diam ... merah amarah melihat korupsi melantakkan negara menyengsarakan bangsa......; para maling berdasi bermewah ria ditemani mafia hukum bersembunyi dalam kemewahan dan senyum jumawa..............

Aaaah negeriku...kemana moral bangsa ini.....
Sementara ada rakyat yang sakit menggeliat didera kemelaratan yang tak pernah henti........ ada kaum muda yang hanya memikirkan maksiat dan memuaskan nafsu duniawi.... sementara para pengemplang pajak tertawa-tawa..ada rakyat miskin yang melata didera gempa, bencana alam dan kemiskinan abadi............
Dikala orang berpesta ria menyambut berbagai hari raya dan kemerdekaan di negeri tercinta …... simiskin melata, memerdekakan diri dengan bunuh diri....... tercebur didalam aib dan dosa demi dosa...........karena kemiskinan yang abadi....

Sementara nun jauh diseberang sana ada jutawan yang menyumbangkan hampir seluruh hartanya bagi rakyat miskin didunia......... disini dinegeri tercinta ini …. simiskin berdesak pingsan tergeletak dan mati terinjak dihari-hari raya mengharap belas kasihan para dermawan yang bukan terlalu jutawan....
Hati para pejuang diam itu menangis ingin membantu tetapi tak berdaya....... apa yang dapat disumbangkan kepada bumi tercinta.......?
Negeriku yang cantik ...... sekarang aku makin ragu.... apakah memang benar ada mereka yang berjuang demi rakyat dan atas nama rakyat........... atau kata-kata manis hanya dibibir belaka.......... atas nama janji demi janji.... siapa pun dia...

Apa benar petani bawang dan petani cabe setahun sekali menari mendekati hari-hari raya agama karena panennya membawa berkah melimpah ..........ataukah tengkulak yang meloncat ria....... sementara mereka-mereka petani itu tetap bersedih digubuk reot memikirkan utang demi utang dan tulang-tulangnya yang luluh lantak kehabisan tenaga berjuang tanpa henti dibawah terik matahari..........

Pernahkah terlintas … perihnya hidup si miskin ditempat sunyi di pulau terpencil, di hutan rimba, diperbatasan negeri tercinta yang bernama Indonesia........? Pernahkah terlintas perihnya hidup miskin mengarungi laut diterjang ombak yang menerpa dan kesunyian mendalam...... demi sesuap nasi..........
Pernahkah terlintas perihnya hidup diselembar atap dikolong jembatan mendorong gerobak diterjang penggusuran hanya demi tempat berlindung dan sesuap nasi.......? Inikah arti kemerdekaan atau hari-hari raya agama atau apa pun namanya..........?

Duh......puisi kata hati....betapa perihnya....dan sanggupkah kau bersama para pejuang diam itu... menyentuh relung hati setiap insan di bumi ini …... bahwa manusia tidak hidup sendiri dan apa pun kondisinya mereka-mereka berhak hidup bahagia dan menikmati artinya merdeka..........?

Puisi kata hati......akan menjadi menjadi puisi kata hati sampai selamanya........ engkau tidak akan pernah didengar dan terdengar selamanya …........... atau sampai saatnya nanti........... tetaplah berjuang bersama para pejuang diam ….... selamanya …...........

MENGAPA PROYEK KERJASAMA PEMERINTAH – SWASTA TERSENDAT?

Salah satu upaya Pemerintah untuk membangun sarana dan prasarana infrastruktur di Indonesia adalah melalui Kerjasama Pemerintah Swasta (KPS)

Sebagaimana diungkapkan oleh Luky Eko Wuryanto, Deputi Bidang Koordinasi Infrastruktur dan Pengembangan Wilayah Kementerian Koordinator Bidang Perekonomian pada pembahasan tentang Skema Kerjasama Pemerintah Swasta (KPS) tanggal 10 Agustus 2010, di Hotel Mulia Senayan, Pemerintah memperhitungkan bahwa untuk tahun anggaran 2009 – 2014 diperlukan biaya sebesar 5% dari PDB atau sekitar Rp 1.924,- triliun untuk pembangunan Infrastruktur. Untuk itu:
1.Rp 560,- triliun akan dibiayai dari APBN;
2.Rp 355,- triliun dari APBD;
3.Rp 340,- triliun dari BUMN;
4.Rp 346,- triliun dari swasta yang akan ditawarkan melalui KPS.
Namun dari jumlah tersebut diatas masih terdapat kekurangan sebesar Rp 323,- triliun yang tentunya diharapkan dapat dipenuhi oleh Pemerintah; dan hal ini berarti harus menggenjot pertumbuhan ekonomi minimal 7% per tahun dalam periode 2009 – 2014.


Sejak dicanangkannya program KPS atau Public Private Partnership (PPP) untuk periode tahun 2004 -2009, biaya KPS juga diperkirakan telah naik sampai 3 kali lipat untuk tahun anggaran 2009-2014 ini, namun proyek-proyek KPS belum serta merta dapat terlaksana.

Belum dapat terlaksananya proyek-proyek KPS, terutama dikarenakan oleh:
1.Masalah Pembebasan Lahan/Tanah, antara lain harus menghadapi:
  • Masyarakat pemilik tanah, Pemda terkadang sampai Camat, Lurah bahkan, RW, RT dan masyarakat adat serta pemimpin adat.
  • Vested-interest developer atau kepentingan politis tertentu di daerah tempat akan dibangunnya infra struktur; belum lagi bila proyek tersebut harus melintasi daerah-daerah yang mempunyai kewenangan berbeda.
  • Lahan-lahan yang dikuasai oleh pemegang HPH (Hak Pengelolaan Hutan) dan lahan yang dikuasai pemegang KP (Kuasa Penambangan)
  • Lokasi yang belum pasti; dan ini akan menyebabkan tingginya ongkos yang harus dikeluarkan oleh developer diantaranya untuk biaya Amdal (Analisa Dampak Lingkungan) dan biaya lain-lain.
  • Belum terselesaikannya UU tentang Pengadaan Tanah Untuk Kepentingan Umum yang baru disampaikan Pemerintah, Juli 2010, saat ini masih dalam pembahasan intensif dengan DPR. Sebab, peraturan yang selama ini dipakai Perpres 36/2005 jo Perpres no 65/2006 tentang Pengadaan Tanah Bagi Kepentingan Umum dan Pembangunan dinilai terlalu lemah.
2.Masalah Kelembagaan :
  • Belum tersedianya lembaga khusus yang dapat menjembatani (net work) kepentingan termasuk perizinan antara Pemerintah Pusat dan Daerah maupun dengan swasta serta antara instansi terkait di Pusat dan Daerah sendiri.
  • Ide one stop service apabila harus dilakukan oleh lembaga seperti BKPM (Badan Koordinasi Penanaman Modal) berhubung dekat dengan pengusaha penanaman modal dalam negeri maupun luar negeri; oleh sebagaian kalangan dianggap tidak akan berjalan efekif karena banyaknya tugas kewenangan yang telah dilimpahkan dan harus ditangani oleh BKPM dalam rangka penanaman modal. Disamping itu, tidak semua kewenangan dapat dilimpahkan kepada BKPM seperti terkait dengan kehutanan, pertambangan, lingkungan, keimigrasian, bea masuk barang modal, pajak dan lain-lain.
  • Pihak PT. IIF (Indonesia Infrastruktur Fund) dan PT. PII (Penjaminan Infrastruktur Indonesia) beranggapan bahwa untuk percepatan proyek tidak perlu lembaga khusus, karena pelimpahan wewenang serta berbagai proses birokrasi untuk pembentukan lembaga semacam itu akan memakan waktu lama. Diperlukan hanya Tim yang berada langsung dibawah Presiden RI atau Wakil Presiden RI yang dianggap dapat mengkoordinir seluruh instansi terkait untuk percepatan pelaksanaan KPS atau semacam BRR (Badan Rekonstruksi dan Rehabilitasi) Aceh dan Nias saat Tsunami dahulu.
  • Proyek-proyek dipilih yang mana yang patut memperoleh prioritas kemudian dilaksanakan oleh para developer dibawah koordinasi Tim atau pun lembaga yang akan dibentuk nantinya.
3.Biaya :
  • Sampai saat ini tidak ada dana khusus dari Pemerintah untuk pembebasan lahan bagi proyek-proyek KPS. Menurut Pejabat Bank Dunia hal ini tidak menarik bagi investor. Di Cina, India dan Malaysia. Pemerintah masing-masing secara penuh menanggung biaya dan menyiapkan lahan bagi proyek-proyek infrastruktur dinegaranya baru kemudian ditawarkan kepada investor, sehingga investor hanya berurusan dengan pembangunan infrastruktur tanpa harus terlibat dalam masalah pembebasan lahan. Sedangkan di Indonesia masalah lahan harus ditangani sendiri oleh investor dan ini tentu tidak menarik bagi investor. Mengenai biaya pembebasan lahan, Pemerintah Indonesia menurut pejabat Bank Dunia tersebut dapat saja meminjam dari ADB dan lain-lain.
  • Pemerintah secara matang telah bertekad untuk tidak membuat utang-utang baru, oleh karena itu berupaya keras untuk menutupi kekurangan biaya melalui KPS dan biaya sendiri yang diyakini dapat diperoleh dengan meningkatkan penerimaan pajak, memberantas korupsi, meningkatkan pertumbuhan ekonomi dan berbagai program lainnya. Lagi pula, daya serap anggaran yang kurang memadai pada lembaga-lembaga Pemerintahan yang diperkirakan baru terserap sebesar 17% sampai akhir Triwulan II 2010, dapat dialihkan untuk biaya pembangunan infrastruktur.
  • Namun proses pengalihan dana dan pelaksanaannya juga tidak mudah, karena yang dapat menggunakan dana pemerintah untuk pelaksanaan proyek sesuai dengan UU no 1 tahun 2004 tentang Perbendaharaan Negara adalah BLU (Badan Layanan Umum), sedangkan yang akan melaksanakan proyek KPS adalah Badan Usaha (PT Persero/BUMN dan PT swasta) sehingga perlu terobosan atau perubahan Undang-undang apabila program KPS harus menggunakan dana pemerintah atau dilaksanakan oleh Badan Usaha.
  • Apabila harus meminjam dari Bank-bank BUMN juga tidak mudah karena mereka juga terikat pada ketentuan perusahaan terkait CAR (Capital Adequacy Ratio/Rasio Kecukupan Modal) dan NPL (Non Performing Loan atau performance bank terkait dengan kemampuan pengembalian utang oleh debitur) antara lain bahwa pinjaman hanya dapat diberikan apabila masalah-masalah tanah telah diselesaikan.
4.Peraturan :
  • Sesuai Perpres No. 13 Tahun 2010 tentang Perubahan atas Peraturan Presiden Nomor 67 Tahun 2005 tentang Kerjasama Pemerintah dengan Badan Usaha dalam Penyediaan Infrastruktur, maka seluruh tender pemerintah yang diikuti dan dimenangkan oleh swasta harus dilaporkan ke DPRD serta harus diproses dan selesai oleh DPR selambat-lambatnya 15 hari kerja, padahal dalam pelaksanaannya dibutuhkan sekurang-kurangnya 6 bulan untuk menyelesaikan dan melaporkan proses tender ke DPRD sampai masuk ke DPRD dan keluarnya persetujuan untuk proyek yang bersangkutan.
  • Lelang barang pemerintah yang diikuti oleh BUMN atau instansi pemerintah, diatur melalui Keppres No. 80 Tahun 2003, sedangkan tender yang diikuti dan sebagian didanai oleh swasta diatur melalui Perpres No. 13 Tahun 2010 tentang Perubahan atas Peraturan Presiden Nomor 67 Tahun 2005 tentang Kerjasama Pemerintah dengan Badan Usaha dalam Penyediaan Infrastruktur. Padahal apabila proyek akan dimulai, tender dalam rangka KPS baik yang dilakukan oleh BUMN dan swasta mitranya harus dilakukan pada saat yang bersamaan. Untuk mengatur agar waktu pelaksanaan tendernya bersamaan bukanlah hal mudah karena keduanya diatur dalam tatanan hukum yang berbeda.

Kesimpulan dan Saran:
  1. Masalah tanah merupakan hal kunci yang harus diselesaikan sesegera mungkin dan dengan bijak oleh Pemerintah. 
  • Perlu diberikan sosialisasi dan pemahaman kepada pemilih tanah, baik masyarakat, pemilik tanah adat, pemegang HPH, pemegang KP (Kuasa Penambangan) mengenai kesadaran tentang pentingnya sarana dan prasarana infrastruktur bagi masa depan bangsa dan negara ini. 
  • Seyogyanya, karena sudah ada UU No: 26 tahun 2007 tentang Penataan Ruang dan dengan telah diterbitkannya beberapa peraturan pelaksanaan dari UU no: 26/2007 tersebut maka penetapan lokasi proyek infrastruktur maupun penyelesaian masalah tanah dapat tertanggulangi dengan lebih mudah. Namun tampaknya mengenai masalah tanah ini “mungkin” baru dapat terselesaikan dengan dikeluarkannya UU tentang Pengadaan Tanah serta peraturan-peraturan pelaksanaannya nanti.
  1.  
  2. Mengenai kelembagaan untuk koordinasi masalah infrastruktur, dapat saja BKPM ditunjuk sebagai lembaga koordinasi untuk proyek-proyek KPS bila Pemerintah menghendaki demikian. Namun, apa pun lembaganya, apakah itu BKPM atau Tim, harus dengan pengawasan yang ketat karena lembaga ini nantinya juga diharapkan dapat menjadi Contracting Agency untuk memediasi masalah-masalah kontrak antara instansi pemerintah/BUMN dan swasta.
  3. Pemerintah juga perlu mempercepat pengadaan peraturan-peraturan yang diperlukan untuk dapat mempercepat pelaksanaan proyek-proyek KPS; antara lain memang akan dikeluarkan Instruksi Presiden untuk percepatan proyek-proyek KPS sebagaimana dilakukan pada proyek KPS tahun 2004-2009; dan tidak kalah pentingnya tentu diperlukan peran DPR dalam mempercepat terbitnya UU Pengadaan Tanah maupun kecepatan penyelesaian persetujuan maupun penolakan DPRD terhadap proyek-proyek KPS yang diajukan ke DPRD sesuai dengan peraturan perundang-undangan; apalagi menimbang tertundanya pelaksanaan proyek-proyek infrastruktur berarti tertundanya pembangunan negara dan bangsa ini secara keseluruhan!
  4. Niat Pemerintah Indonesia untuk tidak melakukan pinjaman untuk pembangunan di negeri ini benar-benar sangat terpuji, apalagi bila mengingat dana yang dibutuhkan didalam negeri baik dana pemerintah sendiri/termasuk bank-bank BUMN juga tersedia, sehingga Indonesia bisa terhindar dari ketergantungan pada dana asing. Walaupun secara komersil juga dapat diperhitungkan dengan matang, untung atau ruginya meminjam dana dari bank-bank asing. Sebenarnya, sepanjang dana tersebut dapat dikembalikan sesuai target, serta keuntungan yang diperoleh dari pembangunan infrastruktur serta dampak positifnya bagi kemaslahatan rakyat banyak dapat jauh lebih besar, serta pengawasan dan tidakan tegas terhadap penyelewengan dilakukan, mengapa tidak?
  5. Yang paling penting diatas segala kesimpulan diatas tentunya komitmen politis dari para penyelenggara negara serta partisipasi masyarakat secara luas tentang pentingnya sarana dan prasarana infrastruktur bagi perbaikan kondisi bangsa dan negara ini kedepan, agar seluruh kesulitan dapat diatasi bersama!
Demikian laporan ini dibuat untuk kiranya dapat bermanfaat bagi bangsa dan negara.

DOMESTIC REGULATION

 Cache   
SAMBUTAN DEPUTI SEKRETARIS WAKIL PRESIDEN BIDANG ADMINISTRASI: DR. HENRY SOELISTYO BUDI, SH, LLM. PADA PERTEMUAN KONSULTASI TENTANG:
LIBERALISASI PERDAGANGAN DAN HARMONISASI PERATURAN PERUNDANG-UNDANGAN DIDALAM NEGERI (DOMESTIC REGULATION)
Hotel Salak, Bogor, 4 Agustus 2010.
 Sambutan dan pembukaan pertemuan konsultasi oleh: Dr. Henry Soelistyo Budi SH, LLM.

  • Saudara-saudara Peserta Pertemuan Konsultasi Liberalisasi Perdagangan dan Harmonisasi Peraturan Domestik yang saya hormati.  Saya menyambut baik prakarsa penyelenggaraan pertemuan konsultasi hari ini. Dalam pengamatan saya, pertemuan ini memiliki makna penting dan strategis.
Pertama, sebagai bagian dari upaya sosialisasi dan diseminasi progress agenda liberalisasi perdagangan berikut issue-issue aktual dan penyikapan kita terhadap never ended agenda WTO tersebut. Hanya dengan pemahaman yang cukup maka kita dapat mengambil sikap yang benar, terarah dan bermanfaat bagi kepentingan nasional. Langkah ini sekaligus menunjukkan kesungguhan Indonesia menjadi good player dalam international trade fora.
Kedua, perlunya strategi dan langkah bersama untuk mewujudkan harmonisasi regulasi domestik. Harmonisasi regulasi merupakan keniscayaan dalam mewujudkan komitmen Indonesia dalam keanggotaan di WTO. Harmonisasi mengandung makna compliance ganda. Pertama, keharusan menyusun peraturan perundang-undangan yang baru, yang belum dimiliki Indonesia, sebagai konsekuensi logis dari kepatuhan terhadap prinsip-prinsip perdagangan internasional yang bebas, transparan dan equal. Kedua, keharusan melakukan revisi atas berbagai ketentuan dalam existing regulation yang tidak sesuai atau bertentangan dengan norma-norma hukum internasional, termasuk standar pengaturan yang dikembangkan oleh WTO. Di luar konsekuensi itu, Indonesia memiliki right to regulate sesuai dengan kepentingannya.
Law making process untuk kedua keharusan tersebut tentu memerlukan waktu dan pemikiran yang matang. Bagi Indonesia, strategi ke arah compliance itu harus dibangun atas dasar dua prinsip, yaitu harus bertahap sesuai dengan kemampuan atau level of development dan harus tetap berpegang pada kepentingan nasional. Betapapun dalam bidang jasa ini tidak dikenal adanya exemption sebagaimana diatur dalam special and differentials treatment bagi negara berkembang pada skema GATT 1947.
Makna penting yang ketiga, lebih merupakan evaluasi atas kesiapan sektor-sektor jasa kita dalam melaksanakan aturan-aturan, mulai dari induknya, yaitu General Agreement on Trade in Service/GATS, hingga penjabarannya dalam berbagai kebijakan dan peraturan perundang-undangan nasional yang relevan. Termasuk dalam kesiapan ini adalah kepastian sektor jasa untuk dibuka dan bersaing dalam pasar global. Meskipun telah mengisi dan menyampaikan schedule of commitment, kita masih memerlukan instrumen yang valid untuk mengukur daya saing riil produk jasa Indonesia. Bila tidak cermat dan hati-hati dalam mengambil posisi, tidak tertutup kemungkinan akan menimbulkan dispute yang dapat berujung pada retaliasi.
Patut dicatat bahwa Persetujuan Trade in Service ini merupakan satu dari tiga new issues dalam agenda Uruguay Round Negotiation, 1986-1994, disamping TRIPS dan TRIMS. Oleh karena itu, masih perlu penyesuian yang utuh dan pemahaman yang mendalam atas seluruh aturan hukum di bidang jasa tersebut, terutama di kalangan pelaku usaha, pemerintah dan masyarakat, dalam menyikapi implikasinya.
Harus diakui, jasa merupakan bidang perdagangan yang berpotensi menghasilkan income yang sangat lucrative bagi perekonomian nasional disamping komoditas barang. Hal ini dimungkinkan karena cakupan sektor jasa yang sangat luas, mulai dari sektor keuangan seperti perbankan, lembaga keuangan dan lembaga keuangan non bank, hingga bisnis transportasi, telekomunikasi dan pariwisata. Seluruhnya mencakup 12 sektor jasa dan lebih dari 700 sub sektor pencabangannya. Kesemuanya harus ditata, diarahkan dan dioptimalkan pengelolaannya menghadapi persaingan global.
Sejauh ini memang tidak tersedia data lengkap mengenai besarnya kontribusi sektor jasa pada perekonomian Indonesia. Namun, tanpa harus menampilkan data grafis maupun angka-angka kuantitatif, semua pasti sepakat untuk mengakui bahwa Singapura merupakan salah satu negara yang perekonomiannya sukses dan maju bertumpu pada perdagangan di bidang jasa. Air transport service dan financial service menjadi pilar penting di antara bidang-bidang jasa lainnya.
Sesuai dengan mandat Pasal VI General Agreement on Trade in Services/GATS; setiap negara anggota WTO, diwajibkan membuat Domestic Regulation sesuai dengan norma dan standar aturan WTO. Domestic Regulation tersebut penting dan diperlukan dalam rangka mengakomodasi liberalisasi perdagangan jasa. Dalam bidang perdagangan jasa, fokus acuannya adalah aturan GATS, dengan berpedoman pada prinsip transparan, tidak burdensome bagi para pelaku penyedia jasa dan tidak menurunkan kualitas jasa yang disediakan akibat diterapkannya regulasi mengenai prosedur atau perizinan dibidang jasa apapun.
Prinsip regulasi seperti itu sungguh tidak sederhana karena bukan hanya mencakup produk jasa saja akan tetapi juga menyangkut penyedia jasa (service provider). Bagaimana produk jasa diperdagangkan diatur dalam empat kerangka Modes of Supply yang perlu dipedomani sebagai rambu.
  • Mode 1 terkait dengan Cross Border Supply, yaitu bagaimana jasa diperdagangkan secara lintas negara. Normanya, dilarang membuat aturan perizinan maupun kualifikasi yang dapat menyebabkan hambatan terhadap masuknya produk jasa dari negara lain. Misalnya, izin praktek pengacara, dokter, akuntan dan asuransi yang perlu memperoleh pengaturan secara seksama. Pengaturan perizinan dan kualifikasi harus transparan dan tidak boleh menjadi disguised restriction, atau restriksi terselubung yang sengaja diciptakan.
  • Mode 2 mengenai Consumption Abroad. Normanya, dilarang membuat aturan yang menyebabkan hambatan konsumsi jasa di negara lain. Misalnya, larangan pasien berobat atau pelajar sekolah ke luar negeri. Prinsipnya harus tidak ada barrier bagi kebebasan untuk memilih jasa yang tersedia di pasar global.
  • Mode 3 menyangkut Commercial Presence. Normanya, dilarang membuat aturan, baik yang menyangkut institusi ataupun persyaratan kualitas maupun kuantitas, serta perizinan yang dapat menghambat masuknya penyedia jasa asing. Norma ini berkaitan terutama dengan aturan Foreign Direct Investment yang perlu kita evaluasi dari waktu ke waktu. Perda-perda yang terkait dengan investasi asing harus selaras dengan semangat mode of supply ini.
  • Mode 4 menyangkut Movement of Natural Persons: Normanya, dilarang membuat peraturan atau persyaratan yang dapat menghambat masuknya pelaku jasa asing. Bila ada persyaratan, hal itu harus jelas dirumuskan, misalnya visa dan aturan keimigrasian yang terkait dengan lalu lintas ketenagakerjaan.
Sejauh ini, serangkaian perundingan yang menyangkut ke empat Modes of Supply tersebut masih berlangsung alot dan sulit diprediksi selesainya. Namun demikian, mengingat Doha Development Agenda, telah memproyeksikan selesai akhir tahun 2010 atau selambat-lambatnya akhir tahun 2011, termasuk kesepakatan mengenai domestic regulation; maka pertemuan konsultasi ini dapat digunakan untuk mengukur kesiapan Indonesia dalam kancah perdagangan jasa berskala global dan bernuansa liberal ini.
Dari segi regulasi, saya juga melihat ada blessing in disguise. Sebab, harmonisasi regulasi domestik ini secara serta merta juga mendorong terwujudnya harmonisasi peraturan pusat dan daerah; serta antara daerah dengan daerah lainnya dan dengan dunia internasional.
Sebagai negara berkembang, Indonesia menyadari perbedaan tingkat kemampuan dan kesiapan setiap negara yang tidak setara, apalagi disandingkan dengan negara-negara maju. Oleh karena itu, Indonesia dan negara-negara-ASEAN saat ini masih terus memperjuangkan agar Emergency Safeguard Measures dan right to regulate, dapat dimasukkan kedalam kesepakatan tentang Domestic Regulation. Selain itu, untuk penyiapan pelaksanaannya, kepada negara-negara maju juga diminta memberikan bantuan di bidang peningkatan capacity building.
Dengan latar belakang permasalahan tadi, perkenankan saya menyampaikan ucapan terimakasih dan penghargaan kepada para pembicara dan moderator dalam pertemuan konsultasi ini.
  • Kepada Bapak Bachrul Chairi, Staf Ahli Menteri Perdagangan dan juga Ketua Tim Koordinasi Bidang Jasa (TKBJ), yang akan menjelaskan perkembangan perundingan Domestic Regulation serta kebutuhan untuk mengkoordinasikan pemikiran-pemikiran konseptual guna menghadapi berbagai sidang WTO serta kesiapan menghadapi ketentuan domestic regulation bila diterapkan pada waktunya nanti. Bagaimana kiat-kiat dan strategi menghadapi liberalisasi perdagangan sehingga memberi manfaat yang optimal bagi pertumbuhan sektor jasa di Indonesia merupakan masalah penting yang juga patut untuk diulas.
  • Kepada Bapak Made Erata, mantan Staf Ahli Menteri Keuangan dan Mantan Ketua TKBJ yang saat ini menjadi Ketua Dewan Direktur Lembaga Pembiayaan Ekspor Indonesia (LPEI) karena berkenan menyampaikan perkembangan pembahasan mengenai Disciplines on Domestic Regulation/DDR pada Forum WTO. Topik DDR ini sangat penting, untuk dapat menilai manfaat serta melakukan analisis mengenai implikasi atau konsekuensinya bagi Indonesia.
  • Kepada Bapak Henki Irsan, Staf Khusus Kementerian Tenaga Kerja dan Transmigrasi yang akan meng-update kita tentang permasalahan yang terkait dengan penggunaan tenaga kerja asing, kebijakan, aturan hukum dan aspek proseduralnya. Arahnya, untuk mengevaluasi kesiapan Indonesia menghadapi liberalisasi perdagangan jasa terutama di sektor ketenagakerjaan.
  • Bapak Dirjen Administrasi Hukum Umum, Kementerian Hukum dan HAM, yang akan membahas mengenai tantangan dan kesiapan melaksanakan kewajiban penyusunan regulasi domestik guna menunjang perdagangan jasa Indonesia.
  • Bapak Doddy, Direktur Pengembangan Ekonomi Daerah, Kementerian Dalam Negeri untuk paparannya mengenai beberapa permasalahan terkait dengan upaya Harmonisasi Peraturan Perundang-undangan antara Pusat dan Daerah. Pengalaman selama ini dan rencana ke depan yang masih akan dilaksanakan kiranya akan dapat menambah wawasan mengenai kemungkinan melakukan proses yang sama bagi harmonisasi regulasi domestik di bidang perdagangan jasa ini.
  • Ucapan terimakasih dan penghargaan yang sama juga saya sampaikan kepada Ibu Huda Bahweres dari Kementerian Koordinator Bidang Perekonomian dan Direktur Perjanjian Internasional, Kementerian Luar Negeri, yang telah berkenan menjadi moderator memandu Pertemuan Konsultasi ini.
Akhirnya, kepada seluruh peserta konsultasi saya sampaikan selamat mengikuti pertemuan ini hingga paripurna guna memperluas understanding dan memperkuat awareness mengenai konsepsi perdagangan jasa, guna dapat lebih optimal menangani tugas-tugas yang terkait dengan perdagangan jasa. Seperti harapan kita semua, kiranya perdagangan jasa dapat tumbuh dan berkembang menjadi primadona perekonomian Indonesia. Dengan pengantar tadi, Pertemuan Konsultasi Liberalisasi Perdagangan dan Harmonisasi Peraturan Domestik pada hari ini Rabu, 4 Agustus 2010, secara resmi saya buka.

REMARKABLE INDONESIA

 Cache   
Being travel to more than 40 countries in the world, I can say: "There are so much stories about my beautiful country Indonesia that I could share with people around the globe."

Indonesia is a country with abundant natural resources, inhabited by approximately 250 million citizens; with more than 17,000 islands in which some has no name still; and more than 450 local languages belong to the ethnic groups.

Hundreds of scarce animals such as orang utan, coala, java tiger, komodo still exist in Indonesia also various kind of rare plants that could make us all breathless by their beauty. Indonesia is among the most beautiful country to visit either for workings or leisure and most importantly for a vacation.

We can speak years and years about the uniqueness of Indonesia. However, in modern time, we better enjoy the story from the slides, because time is so precious and it is more effective if I show you Indonesia from the audiovisual facts.

Every part of Indonesia has a beautiful natural landscape, a gracefully GOD gives to our nation. Some part yes I must admit is bold because the jungles was deforested by irresponsible people for illegal logging, some was partly damage because of natural disasters such as Tsunami that hits Aceh in December 2004, earth quake in Yogyakarta in May 2006, in Padalarang early of September 2006 and West Sumatera end of September 2009 as well as many other places after that.

But, do the country lost its beauty because of the natural disasters? Not at all, neither in the country sides that had experienced the damage, because not long after that, people work hard to recovered from the damage either by self initiatives, by domestic or foreign helps. Well sometimes it is even hard to recognize back if the place had ever been hit by flood or Tsunamy. It needs time yes to rebuild, but the country sides still have their beauty and extraordinary natural landscapes that we can enjoy till today.

So, why not trying to explore the beauty of Indonesia? The following short slides will show you a little part of what I said, but by visiting Indonesia you can prove it yourself. Dont they said: "Seeing is believing"? Bring along your family and friends and have a nice trip in Indonesia. Welcome.

Take a little of Your time and watch the slides. Thank you!

REVIVE THE BATAK CULTURE
by: Neneng Tarigan

http://www.tobaphotographerclub.com/data/media/7/Rumah_adat_karo.jpg


It was 25th June 2010, still sundown at 18.00 pm, I and Angie hurriedly driving through the traffic jam of the capital city in order to promptly arrive at the Haji Usmar Ismail Film Head Quarter, so that we would not be late for the REVIVE OF THE BATAK CULTURE program.

As a Batak Karo I am and Batak Tapanuli for Angie, we were both quite seldom to attend or even almost had never been to any particular Batak program like this one. However that night was so special for us to support the Maranatha Choir mission to Austria to compete in the World Choir competition together with the group of churches choirs from all over the world. Whatever the reason was, the effort of Maranatha group would have crafted a good name for Indonesia as a country and a nation that has been so pluralistic.

At 19.00 pm, we arrived at the Usmar Ismail Film Head Quarter. Not so many guests arrived yet; what it seen was the busy of the committee and the Batak Tapanuli's traditional percussion players named Batara Guru. Hm... that is quite similar with the name of a wise god in the Mahabharata epics. In the lobby of the building, Batara Guru play some of lovely Batak's songs with their traditional percussion, whereas just in front of them lies an exhibition of beautiful Batak woven clothes created by Batak designer Merdi Sihombing. Merdi used to live in Austria to deepen his study on textile; his Batak woven creation which used Swarowzky beads in most of his design has already have special costumers in Europe.

Beside of getting fund for the Maranatha Choir Group mission to Austria; Revive the Batak Culture program was also aimed at raising fund for building a school for children at Samosir Isle in Toba lake. A sincere idea of Merdi Sihombing.

Revive The Batak Culture program itself begun at 20.00 pm. Not many audiences present in the program, since almost all eyes of the people at that time were focused on South Africa where the world football match or the World Cup taken place. I my self is a great fan of the World Cup. Ever since the television exist, the World Cup event which is conducted every 4 years became my most awaited event ever. Nevertheless, that night I feel I was called to watch the Batak's Cultural Performance, beside of that my niece Lulu the daughter of my late cousin Maria Erbina Barus with late Singarimbun was also taken part as a committee of the program and she will join the Maranatha Group mission to Austria in July 2010. Few years ago, this group and Lulu were also went to Austria and won as the first winner of the world choir competition that time. What a prestige indeed.

That night the program was filled with Batak modernized dances, but oooiiii... besides the beautiful dances, the dancers also wore the unique, lovely and attractive Merdi's hand woven colorful clothes. The MC was also funny, the songs were also exclusively special especially those songs sung by Ramona Purba with his traditional Batak Karo Band Endakustik, and most specially the songs sang by Victor Hutabarat and Tio Fanta Pinem.

That night I really was swayed and admired by the uniqueness, and the beauty as well as the friendliness of Batak Lima Puak/the Five Tribes of Batak (Tapanuli, Karo, Simalungun, Dairi and sorry if Dairi is not the same with Simalungun). I felt so convenient with the ambiance and the songs because they were so lively and melodious. What sad was, although I am the product of mix marriage of Ambonese + Mandailing from my mom's side and Karo from my father's side. These tribes are famous in producing the top Indonesian singers, however none in our family has the talent.

Beside of dancing and singing performance the program was also interlude with the fashion show of well known beautiful models of the capital. They performed the Merdi Sihombing's creations. Ooooiii...although I am not rich, I was really eager to have just a master piece of this great young designer creations. He dreams to promote the traditional Batak's woven to international market. A solemnly idea indeed.

How lucky I was at the bid that night, because of the pro gesture of the young designer Merdi Sihombing and my favorite singer Victor Hutabarat, at last I was able to win a master piece of one of Merdi Sihombing's design. For me, that was the most expensive cloth I had ever bailed, although the historical value, the culture and uniqueness of the piece must have priced higher than what I paid. Thanks God I had the opportunity to have that Batak cultural creation.

The efforts and the results of the program was not really met with all of the efforts taken by the committee, the sponsors, the models, the designer, the singers and all of the artists who were present that night. Just if I am rich, I was able to help ..................
Nevertheless, it was such a wonderful night that I will treasure in my life together with my kid/niece Angie.

REVIVE THE BATAK CULTURE (Pembangkitan Kembali Budaya Batak)
Oleh: Neneng Tarigan

Hari itu tanggal 25 Juni 2010, masih pukul 18.00 senja hari, saya dan Angie buru-buru berkenderaan menembus kemacetan lalu lintas ibu kota untuk segera bisa mencapai Gedung Pusat Perfilman Haji Usmar Ismail, Kuningan, agar tidak terlambat menghadiri acara REVIVE THE BATAK CULTURE. Sebagai orang yang masih berdarah Batak Karo untuk saya dan Tapanuli bagi Angie, kami memang jarang sekali atau hampir tidak pernah menghadiri acara-acara khusus budaya Batak seperti ini. Akan tetapi ini adalah malam yang sangat special untuk mendukung keberangkatan group koor Maranatha ke Austria bertanding merebut kejuaraan koor dari berbagai gereja dan kelompok gereja sedunia. Apapun alasannya, upaya ini pasti untuk keharuman nama bangsa dan negara Indonesia yang sangat majemuk ini.

Pukul 19.00 kami tiba di Gedung Pusat Perfilman. Belum banyak yang hadir; yang tampak adalah kesibukan panitia dan gendang tradisional Batak Tapanuli bernama Batara Guru. Hm... suatu nama yang mirip sekali dengan nama Dewa bijak dari kisah pewayangan Mahabarata. Di lobby gedung, Batara Guru memainkan dengan sangat indah lagu-lagu gending Batak, sedangkan didepannya terhampar tenun-tenun songket Batak yang luar biasa indah dari designer Batak ternama Merdi Sihombing. Merdi, pernah tinggal di Austria untuk belajar memperdalam mengenai tekstil; bahkan hasil karya tenun Bataknya yang menggunakan manik-manik Swarozky mendapat tempat dan penggemar sendiri di dunia fashion Eropa.

Acara the Revive Batak Culture ini selain menggalang dana untuk keberangkatan group koor Maranatha; juga ditujukan untuk pembangunan sekolah di Pulau Samosir Danau Toba. Suatu niat yang sangat luhur dari Merdi Sihombing.

Acara Revive The Batak Culture-nya sendiri baru dimulai pukul 20.00 malam. Tidak banyak yang hadir, karena hampir semua orang dan semua mata dunia saat itu tertuju ke Afrika Selatan, tempat diselenggarakannya pertandingan sepak bola dunia. Saya sendiri penggemar berat pertandingan sepak bola dunia. Sejak adanya televisi, maka Pertandingan Sepak Bola Dunia yang merupakan ajang pertandingan empat tahun sekali adalah event yang sangat saya nanti-nantikan. Namun malam itu saya terpanggil untuk menyaksikan pagelaran kesenian Batak, selain itu Lulu keponakan saya dari sepupu saya almarhum Maria Erbina Barus dan almarhum Singarimbun ambil bagian karena dia termasuk panitia yang akan turut berangkat dengan group Maranatha bulan Juli 2010. Beberapa tahun sebelumnya group ini dan Lulu juga pernah berangkat dan mereka memenangkan sebagai juara pertandingan koor sedunia tersebut. Sungguh membanggakan memang.

Acara malam itu diisi dengan tari-tarian Batak yang sudah di permodern, akan tetapi oooiiii... selain tariannya yang indah, mereka mengenakan kain-kain tenun Merdi Sihombing yang sangat unik, cantik dan menarik. Pembawa acaranya juga sangat kocak, apalagi lagu-lagu yang dibawakan oleh Ramona Purba dan group tradisional musik Batak karo-nya Endakustik sangat eksklusif sekali terutama lagu-lagu Batak yang dibawakan oleh Victor Hutabarat dan Tio Fanta Pinem.

Malam itu saya benar-benar dibuai dan mengaggumi tradisi Batak yang unik dan indah dan keakraban Batak Lima Puak (Tapanuli, Karo, Simalungun,Dairi dan Mandailing= hmmm, maaf bila mungkin Dairi sama dengan Simalungun.) Apapun alasannya, saya merasakan sangat nyaman dengan suasana dan lagu-lagunya yang merdu meriah. Sedihnya, saya merupakan hasil campuran dari perkawinan Ambon+ Mandailing ibu saya dan Karo adalah darah ayah saya. Suku-suku ini terkenal menghasilkan segudang penyanyi-penyanyi top Indonesia, akan tetapi didalam keluarga besar kami, tidak satupun yang berbakat.

Selain tari dan nyanyi, acara ini juga diselingi dengan fashion show dari pragawati ternama ibu kota yang cantik-cantik. Mereka memperagakan kain-kain tenun Merdi Sihombing yang indah. Ooooiii...walaupun tidak kaya, saya benar-benar ingin memiliki salah satu saja dari disain kreasi anak muda yang luar biasa ini. Dia bercita-cita mengangkat budaya dan tenun tradisional Batak. Suatu cita-cita yang sangat luhur.

Alangkah beruntungnya saya, pada acara lelang malam itu, berkat keberpihakan sang disainer muda Merdi Sihombing dan penyanyi kesayangan saya Victor Hutabarat, akhirnya saya bisa membawa sehelai disain unik Merdi Sihombing. Buat saya, itu adalah harga termahal yang saya tebus, walaupun sebenarnya nilai historis, budaya, keunikannya, beratus kali pasti lebih mahal dari harga yang saya tebus. Terimakasih Tuhan aku sempat memiliki hasil kaya budaya Batak.
Upaya dan hasil yang dibuahkan acara ini, benar-benar tidak sebanding sama sekali dengan seluruh upaya yang dikerahkan panitia, para pendukung, pragawati, disainer serta para penyanyi dan seniman yang hadir pada malam itu. Andai saja saya kaya dan dapat membantu...........
Akan tetapi, bagaimanapun juga, itu adalah malam yang indah yang akan saya kenang sepanjang masa bersama anak/ponakan saya Angie.

An uncontrollable mess: The proliferation of state spyware

An uncontrollable mess: The proliferation of state spyware

Components

Three NGOs and a digital rights platform from Germany including Reporters Without Borders (RSF Germany), The Society for Civil Rights (GFF), the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) this month filed a criminal lawsuit against FinFisher, a German company that develops and markets the spyware called FinSpy, for illegally exporting their software to Turkey. The Munich public prosecutor has launched an investigation into the charges. 

The matter is not new for those who follow this field; reports of FinSpy's use against the opposition in Turkey have been circulating for years. This latest episode is based on the claim that the Turkish government planted the software on a fake website designed to attract people interested in, or involved with the Adalet website, which was originally created to facilitate the coordination of opposition during 2017 protest marches. 

According to the claims, this site contained an app that infected the users' devices with FinSpy, which has many capabilities that can completely undermine the privacy of the individuals who used their devices, opening up opportunities for the Turkish government to abuse information to put pressure on opposition figures. At this point, this is a claim that is still being investigated, but it is well known that intelligence agencies, governments, and even third parties routinely utilise spyware for multiple purposes.

Installing antivirus or privacy protection software is no guarantee against such tools, which are designed to evade such measures. Regardless of the result of the German court case, such tools will continue to proliferate in the foreseeable future. As early as six years ago, researchers from the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto found servers operating FinSpy in 25 countries including Australia, Britain, Canada, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, the Netherlands, Qatar and the United States. 

In some cases, the sale and use of FinSpy happened through legal channels, but in an age when the proliferation of extremely complex and costly programmes such as nuclear weapons cannot be fully controlled, to suggest that uncontrolled proliferation of mere software is difficult as it is bound by legal frameworks would be ludicrous. There have already been multiple reports of state actors using FinSpy to monitor their populations and suppress dissent, as the Turkish example also suggests.

And FinSpy is by no means the only tool used by states for such purposes; another recent report of abuse, also revealed by the Citizen Lab in 2018 shows that spyware called Pegasus, developed by Israeli company NSO Group was used by a number of countries. Citizen Lab also found that at least 10 operators of the spyware "appear to be engaged in cross-border surveillance". In total, the report found Pegasus infections in 45 countries.

When it comes to the proliferation of surveillance software, states are not the only interested audience; from businesses to hacker groups (ethical or otherwise), from criminal organisations to terrorist organisations, there is an enormous and chaotic marketplace for such tools, and proliferation happens at every level. In the case of Pegasus, a former employee of NSO Group was charged with stealing the spyware and trying to sell it for $50 million over the dark web. 

Much of the code of FinSpy was found to have been copied and used by the hacker group StrongPity, which staged numerous "Man-in-the-Middle (MiTM)" attacks in recent years, especially in Turkey (but also in Belgium, Italy and Syria). In other words, FinFisher did not have to sell anything illegally to anyone; its code and methods could be compromised by one of many hacker groups. 

Proliferation does not only happen through illicit or illegal means. In 2016, it was found that Turk Telekom had used Sandvine/Procera Networks Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) devices to deliver FinSpy to users who wanted to download Windows applications. Similar claims were made for Telecom Egypt, as well. When the U.S.-based company Procera, which operates branches in Canada and Sweden, became aware through its engineers in Sweden that its products were used by Turk Telekom, senior technical engineer Kriss Andsten resigned, sending a company-wide email that said: "I do not wish to spend the rest of my life with the regret of having been a part of Erdoğan’s insanity, so I'm out." 

According to Forbes, the initial request by Turk Telekom through a proxy had been deemed legitimate by senior figures at the company. But it turned out that Turk Telekom did not just request usernames and passwords, but also the IP addresses of the users, as well as a list of sites they visited.

The strength of the software that was sold to Turkey was likened to a tool used by the National Security Agency in its capabilities by computer security researchers.

If you thought that the major threat to your privacy came from businesses and social media, consider the fact that the motivations of most businesses involve profit, and the legal tools at their disposal can only collect so much. While this is not taken lightly, it is the tip of the iceberg. What about tools built from the ground up to spy on your every activity, designed to avoid detection, tools capable of reading all your messages, including encrypted ones, tools capable of locating your location at any given time with great precision, tools that can not only access your most intimate personal information, but are capable of acting on your behalf using your own equipment?" Do not forget, these tools are primarily being used by state actors with vast resources, in addition to other groups.

Turkey has been accused time and again of abusing human rights, including the right to privacy. In all three examples above, Turkey was one of the top consumers of spyware. This is not a coincidence.

For starters, this system will likely include courses on community engagement and active citizenship. In order to pursue a piece of paper as a pharmacy technician and pass your exams you could possibly address your inquiry to the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) and also the Institute of Certification of Pharmacy Technicians (ICPT). The big databases ensure that you get different questions almost every other time you undertake the sample pharmacy technician exam.

Have you checked to view if you are eligible for public health insurance programs. Therefore, online transactions regarding the medicine becomes the order in the day which can be why they feel an immediate need to have a pharmacy credit card merchant account. Pharmacy technicians and pharmacists, primarily in large retail or hospital pharmacies, tend not to have control over the copay.

' Ram Eesh Institute of Vocational and Technical Education,. There are extremely a number of good pharmacy tech schools, each for the internet and at campuses, which will give you the instruction you are going to need in a short amount of time, typically from four months to 2 many years. Also, learning various medical names, actions of medications, uses, and doses.

The pharmaceutical industry especially can't afford to allow its practitioners to delay or refuse management of clients due towards the perceived usage of any medical device, maybe it's a pill or perhaps a syringe. To find degree programs that train you for any career as a pharmacy technician, you can check out the Directory of Schools website at directoryofschools. However, by exercising with adequate practice pharmacy technician test questions we have better odds of being successful.

There are various numbers of online degrees available including associate's, bachelor's as well as doctorate programs. I feel this aspect is just about the toughest part with the residency curriculum. Several brands of natural cleaners might be found essentially large stores, including Bio - Kleen and Seventh Generation.

Beyond vegan burgers: next-generation protein could come from air, methane, volcanic springs

by Thin Lei Win | @thinink | Thomson Reuters Foundation

Products in development combine cutting-edge technology and age-old fermentation processes with the aim of reducing agriculture's massive carbon footprint
By Thin Lei Win
ROME, Nov 6 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - It may sound like science fiction, but in a few short years the family dinner table may be laden with steak from a printer and other proteins produced from air, methane or volcanic microbes.
With the explosive success of vegan beef and burger substitutes developed by Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, the alternative protein sector just keeps growing.
According to investment bank Barclays, alternative meat sales could reach $140 billion - or 10% of the global meat industry - within a decade, or a 10-fold increase from current levels.
A new generation of products in the works melds cutting-edge technology with age-old fermentation processes to turn otherwise harmful or everyday elements into essential food ingredients, with the aim of reducing agriculture's massive carbon footprint.
According to the United Nations, agriculture, forestry and other land use activities accounted for 23% of total net manmade greenhouse gas emissions from 2007 to 2016, soaring to 37% when pre- and post-production activity were factored in.
Livestock meanwhile are responsible for about 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization.
Enter Solar Foods, a Finnish company working on an edible protein powder called Solein which uses water, air and renewable electricity as a way to separate food production from agriculture.
"You avoid land use impacts like clearing forests for agriculture, use of pesticides and use of fertilisers that release greenhouse gases and so on," co-founder and CEO Pasi Vainikka told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
Solein is made by putting microbes into a liquid and feeding them small bubbles of hydrogen and carbon dioxide, a process similar to making beer or wine, apart from the lack of grapes or grains, Vainikka explained.
As the liquid thickens, it is dried into a very fine powder which is about 65% protein and tastes much like wheat flour.
In September, Solar Foods struck an agreement with Nordic food company Fazer to develop products using Solein, which can be used in existing plant-based products or future offerings such as lab-grown meat.
Solein will cost about €5 per kilo ($2.50 a pound) to produce and will hit the market by 2021, Vainikka said.
"There's a lot of climate anxiety," he said. "And people are looking for hope and solutions and they're happy to see companies like ours, so that's encouraging."
FERMENTATION, FERMENTATION, FERMENTATION
Another company tackling agriculture's emissions through fermentation, Bangalore-based String Bio, is working to convert methane, a greenhouse gas more potent than carbon dioxide as it traps 28 times more heat, from waste and natural sources into protein powder - initially for animals.
"We said this is probably the best impact we humans can have in this world, where we take something that we don't need for the environment and convert it into something we do need," said Vinod Kumar, who with his wife Ezhil Subbian set up the company.
Such environmental considerations, along with concerns over animal welfare and human health, have driven both demand and supply of alternative proteins, said Dan Altschuler Malek, Managing Partner at investment firm Unovis Partners.
Just 10 years ago he said retailers saw alternative proteins as a risky bet, but "today they realise there is a huge demand for all these products."
Unovis manages New Crop Capital, a fund that invests exclusively in start-ups developing meat, seafood and dairy replacements, including Beyond Meat.
New Crop has also invested in Nova Meats, a Spanish company that uses a special 3D printer to produce steak that can mimic the taste and texture of meat.

Some have criticised plant-based alternatives flooding store shelves as highly processed and high in sodium, and Harvard scientists recently questioned their role in a healthy diet.
Others such as the Center for Consumer Freedom, which is backed by the food and beverage industry, have launched campaigns decrying so-called "fake meat" as loaded with chemicals.
Proponents counter that burgers have always been laden with fat and sodium and were never exactly considered health food.
The new generation of proteins are also less processed, said Thomas Jonas, CEO of Sustainable Bioproducts whose protein is based on microbes found in volcanic hot springs at Yellowstone National Park.
In that barren, other-worldly and dangerous landscape, researchers "discovered a bunch of life forms that across millennia evolved to survive in this environment," he said.
Having raised $33 million in February, the company plans to produce "a hamburger equivalent" next year through a "novel fermentation" of the microbes.
At full capacity its 35,000-square-feet (3,250 square metres) plant in Chicago could produce burgers equivalent to those made from cows grazing on 15,000 acres (6,100 hectares) of land, Jonas said.
For investors like Altschuler Malek, alternative proteins are all about options for consumers, with three essential caveats:
"It needs to taste great, it needs to meet certain price points and it needs to be able to be manufactured in large volume," he said.
"There are amazing chefs all over the world that are doing plant-based products. But If you cannot convert that into mass manufacturing it's really hard to see how that can actually make a change in the world."
It is also an opportunity for a radical shift in agriculture which, despite incremental improvements, has remained much the same for centuries, Jonas said.
"Fundamentally we are surviving on this planet based on an agricultural system that has barely changed in the past 11,000 years... when we domesticated a handful of plants and animals."
"New technologies are really giving us tools for a second domestication - things that we didn't even know were there."

Munandar’s death overshadows MotoGP Malaysian Grand Prix

Márquez pays tribute to Asia Talent Cup star, the Quartararo/Márquez Q2 clash, why KTM signed ‘unknown’ Lecuona & reasons why Yamaha: MotoGP Malaysian GP round-up

Rising Indonesian star dies at Sepang

Eight years ago the Malaysian Grand Prix was marred by the death of larger-than-life MotoGP star Marco Simoncelli.

This year’s Malaysian GP was darkened by the passing of Asia Talent Cup rider Afridza Munandar. The Indonesian youngster lost his life in Saturday’s ATC race when he fell on the first lap and was struck by another rider. He was rushed by helicopter to hospital in Kuala Lumpur but succumbed to his injuries

Munandar was one of the standout riders of the 2019 Asia Talent Cup, South East Asia’s so-called road to MotoGP that has already brought Somkiat Chantra, Ai Ogura, Can Oncu, Ayumu Sasaki, Kaito Toba and others into the Moto2 and Moto3 world championships.

"He was pushing, riding with his passion and he will always be the most special rider of this Grand Prix"

The 20-year-old, who also raced underbone machines in the Indonesian national series, had stood on the podium at three world championship rounds this year: he won the ATC support race at the Thailand World Superbike round in March, he took third at October’s Thailand MotoGP round and he was second during the recent Japanese GP round. He also won an ATC race during the Malaysian national superbike event at Sepang in June.

Reigning MotoGP world champion Marc Márquez spoke eloquently of Munandar’s passing after Sunday’s MotoGP race.

“Today is an emotional day because yesterday we lost Munandar,” said Márquez.

“He was a young talent. I knew him because he’s from Astra Honda, where we went many times [in Indonesia]. We cannot forget that everybody here realises the risks we take on the track. We take these risks to achieve our goals, for those sweet moments, so when we achieve our goals we need to enjoy them. Today we enjoyed racing for him because he was also looking for these moments. He was pushing, riding with his passion and he will always be the most special rider of this Grand Prix.”

Munandar is the fifth rider to lose his life at a MotoGP event in the last ten years. Japanese Moto2 star Shoya Tomizawa was killed during the 2010 San Marino GP, a week after 13-year-old American Peter Lenz died after falling on the warm-up lap of a support race at the Indianapolis Grand Prix. All these riders lost their lives in similar ways – they fell from their motorcycle and were struck by following riders. The fifth rider to die during this period was Luis Salom, who was killed during the 2016 Catalan GP, when he was struck by his bike that had rebounded off the trackside airfence.

Despite never-ending development work by riding-gear manufacturers it’s very difficult to protect a fallen rider from the impact of motorcycles travelling at high speed.

Motor Sport extends its deepest condolences to Munandar’s family, friends and loved ones.

 

 

More reasons why Yamaha is back up front…

Apologies for this – the following information should have featured in Monday’s Sepang race insight, revealing another the reasons for Yamaha’s current revival. Two weeks before Sepang I spoke to Petronas SRT team manager Wilco Zeelenberg at Motegi.

“This year’s improvements are nothing big, just tiny changes, but the biggest thing has been Fabio [Quartararo] pushing all the other guys by showing them what the bike can really do,” said Zeelenberg. And then they can look at his data and learn from him, so this is a big help for all of Yamaha.

“Many things are better this year: the engine and the electronics, but most of all it’s the engine that helps us by giving us traction, which is what we needed last year. Pretty much all of our problems last year were because the engine was wrong. The way it made power didn’t find traction, the electronics were not the biggest problem.

“Also, Michelin’s 2019 tyres have helped us a lot. The rear tyre compounds are stronger than last year, so this is a real help, because tyre life was our biggest problem last season.”

 

 

Márquez evaluates scooter-style rear brake

Márquez in FP2 at Sepang: with rear brake lever above, clutch lever below Photo: Honda

Marc Márquez tried a new rear-brake system at Sepang which may trigger a major shift in how MotoGP riders use the rear brake.

MotoGP riders don’t only use the rear brake to decelerate, they use it to help turn the bike mid-corner, to adjust geometry and to control acceleration on corner exits.

Several riders in MotoGP now use rear brakes operated by the left thumb, because they cannot get their right foot to the rear lever in right-handers. However, a thumb-brake cannot deliver much pressure to the rear brake. A finger-operated lever delivers much more pressure and feels more natural because riders use the same system when riding scooters. World Superbike rider Michael van der Mark and several other superbike riders already use finger-operated rear brakes.

“Normally in left corners I’m very fast, but in right corners I’m not extra fast, so we are trying something more,” said Márquez, who only tried the finger lever in FP2. “I didn’t like the thumb brake because I need to feel the handlebar in my hand. But I ride a lot of motocross using the clutch, so this system is easier for me, but at the moment it’s not ready. This was just the first contact to see if it’s possible to use in the future.”

Brembo technicians believe Márquez needs to start 2020 preseason testing with the system and use it for the whole season.

 

 

MotoGP aerodynamics to be removed (occasionally)

Aerodynamics has been the greatest area of controversy in MotoGP during the last few seasons and now the downforce devices may be removed, if only occasionally.

The recent Australian Grand Prix, interrupted by gale-force winds that caused several crashes, convinced riders and teams that MotoGP’s aero winglets can be dangerous in certain circumstances.

“Phillip Island is a unique track in a unique location by the sea, so sometimes it does get very windy,” explained MotoGP technical director Danny Aldridge at Sepang.

“Some riders, teams and manufacturers came to me during the weekend explaining that when it’s really windy the wind can get under the wings, so when the weather’s like that they feel it’s safer to run without them.

“But at that late stage in the weekend we couldn’t do much about it, because while some factories use aerodynamics that are attached to the bodywork, others use aero that’s moulded into the bodywork, so it wouldn’t have been fair if some teams had removed their aero and others couldn’t. We have discussed the situation at IRTA and now the proposal will go to the Grand Prix Commission.”

 

 

‘Swinglets’ are NOT tyre coolers, confirms KTM

KTM's 'swinglet' during the 2019 MotoGP Malaysian Grand Prix

The last of MotoGP’s six factories to introduce swingarm aero used its first so-called ‘swinglet’ at Sepang. KTM is more against aerodynamics than any of the other factories but is going with the flow.

When Ducati introduced the first ‘swinglet’ at the season-opening Qatar GP it caused one of the nastiest confrontations between MotoGP factories in some years. Several rival brands protested at the innovation and the case eventually went to MotoGP’s Court of Appeal, which ruled in the Italian factory’s favour.

At that time Red Bull KTM team manager Mike Leitner said, “a full aero ban would be great; it would make us happy”. But both KTM factory riders raced with ‘swinglets’ at Sepang.

Because swingarm attachments aren’t allowed for aerodynamic reasons Ducati had its unit authorised as a tyre-cooling device. However, every rider from every rival factory that’s subsequently used copies of Ducati’s ‘swinglet’ says the same thing: the ‘swinglet’ increases rear-tyre downforce, which gives them vital extra grip during braking.

“We feel more support from the rear in braking, more rear-tyre force,” said KTM rider Pol Espargaro at Sepang. “This is why all the manufacturers do this: to increase downforce.”

In other words, it would appear that Ducati was being economical with the truth at the start of the season. So what happens next? Will ‘swinglets’ be banned? Not quite.

“I homologate items on the confirmation that the factories give me – what the riders say out there is something else,” said MotoGP technical director Danny Aldridge at Sepang. “Obviously this is no longer a grey area and all the factories have these things, so they will be allowed for 2020. And it’s not all downforce – for example Suzuki say that when they look at their data the unit does cool the tyre.

“The rules will be clarified for next year. Factories will be allowed only one upgrade through the season, and if you remove your unit that’s your upgrade. So you can change the design once, but the upgrade has got to be there all the time, except in the rain.”

 

 

Why did KTM choose Lecuona? ‘Because he’s an animal!’

Iker Lecuona during the 2019 Malaysian Moto2 Grand Prix

When Casey Stoner rode for Ducati his team manager Livio Suppo famously said, “I love Casey – he’s an animal!”

When I asked a top Moto2 engineer why KTM had signed a virtual unknown to its Tech 3 MotoGP team he laughed and said, “Iker is an animal!”.

Motorcycle racing is a vicious sport and requires huge amounts of aggression. This is why KTM signed Iker Lecuona, plus the fact that he is only just starting out as a roadracer and is already fighting close to the front of the Moto2 pack. Incredibly this is only the Spanish 19-year-old’s third full season as a roadracer! Before that he was Spanish Supermoto champion.

At Sepang on Sunday he fought for fourth place on a private KTM, 20 seconds ahead of the next KTM privateer.

The fact that Lecuona (pronounced ‘Laykwona’) is so aggressive on the bike appeals to KTM, which has had its best MotoGP results with Pol Espargaro, who also rides it like he stole it.

And there is something else KTM likes about the Spaniard – he may just have front-tyre skills like Marc Márquez.

“Iker rides with the rear and doesn’t care what happens with the front,” says Mathieu Grodecoeur, his Moto2 crew chief in the American Racing Moto2 squad. “The reason he is strong with the KTM Moto2 bike is that he completely ignores the front chatter and all that stuff.

They have super-rookie in Iker, who will be able tell them completely new things, because he’s never ridden this kind of bike

“When we checked his data from Phillip Island we saw he lost the front every lap at the last corner, but he didn’t mind because he just rides with the rear. He has the attitude to brake late and not really worry about the front.

“His riding style is aggressive. He hangs off a lot and makes the bike turn by himself, working a lot with his body position. I don’t expect him to be consistent in year one in MotoGP, but I think he will show some impressive results sometime.”

Lecuona rode his first Grand Prix in late 2016, then missed the start of his first full-time season in 2017 after suffering serious injuries in preseason testing.

“Since day one working with him I’ve believed in Iker’s huge, huge talent,” adds Grodecoeur. “Obviously he lacks experience in roadracing but his raw talent is incredible.

“For sure KTM’s MotoGP bike has a special DNA, so they need a rider that fits that DNA and I think he will suit the bike very well. When we jumped from Kalex to KTM at the end of 2017 Iker felt from his first lap that this bike was made for him because he can be very aggressive with it and do what he wants with it. With the Kalex you need to be more sensitive with the front and he didn’t like that so much.”

Grodecoeur also believes Lecuona will bring a fresh avenue of development to the RC16

“KTM’s 2019 line-up makes a lot of sense because they have every kind of rider. They have a very experienced MotoGP rider in Pol [Espargaro], they have a rider with one year of experience Miguel [Oliveira], they have a multiple Moto2 race winner in Brad [Binder] and they have super-rookie in Iker, who will be able tell them completely new things, because he’s never ridden this kind of bike

KTM’s MotoGP squad has been watching Lecuona since early 2018 when he fought with Brad Binder and Joan Mir at COTA. Next year he will be replaced in American Racing’s line-up by twice Moto3 race winner Marcos Ramirez

 

 

When Márquez’s magic tricks go wrong

Maverick Viñales took home 25 points from Sepang, but the biggest talking point of the weekend was the clash between Fabio Quartararo and Marc Márquez during Saturday’s Q2 qualifying session.

What happened during that outing was basically the opposite of what happened during qualifying for June’s Italian GP.

That afternoon at Mugello, Márquez played a genius move on his Ducati rivals. The Ducati team told Andrea Dovizioso and Michele Pirro to wait in the pits until Márquez started his final run, then sent them out to mess with him.

Márquez wasn’t playing, so the trio cruised around Mugello, until Dovizioso knew time was running out, so he had to get his head down and go for it. This is when Márquez turned Ducati over.

Instead of allowing Dovizioso to use his speed to snatch pole he slotted in behind Dovizioso, leaving himself just enough space to chase down the Italian on their final lap to take pole by two tenths. This was possibly the best qualifying trick since the introduction of the 15-minute format.

At Sepang it was Márquez who did the chasing, riding out of pit lane right behind Quartararo as they began their final run. Every time Quartararo closed the throttle to force Márquez to overtake, the world champion closed his throttle.

The pair rode a whole lap like this. Quartararo finally tired of the game and knew time was running out, so when they started the next lap he returned to full speed. And that’s when it happened. When Márquez flicked into Turn Two his rear tyre slid and gripped, flicking him over the highside, landing knees, elbows and face first on the track.

The champ was badly battered by the fall, which Jack Miller witnessed from just a few metres behind. “I saw the highside and knew exactly what he’d done – he was dicking around,” said the Aussie. “The left side of the rear tyre is quite hard here, so it got too cold and the bike highsided him. He was playing cat and mouse. He’s generally the master tactician, but today it came back and bit him on the arse. The crash didn’t look pleasant.”

The world champ refused to admit his tactics, while Quartararo only admitted to being flattered. “Marc wanted to follow me because we are doing a good job this year,” said the rookie. “And all this is part of the game – if I have the possibility to do it I’ll also do it.”

Márquez’s Sunday comeback from his massive highside was remarkable. MotoGP doctor Angel Charte prescribed anti-inflammatories and painkillers for his injuries and described him as “pure, hardened steel”.

Perhaps without the injuries Márquez may have been hunted down Vinales, but perhaps Q2 was the more important moment of the weekend: the first shot of the 2020 MotoGP season?

Even more remarkable than Márquez’s race was the fact that neither him nor Quartararo were reprimanded for cruising in Q2, because there is nothing more dangerous on a racetrack than riding slowly.

Rossi: still life in the old dog yet

The Malaysian Grand Prix is MotoGP’s most physically demanding race due to the tropical weather. Sunday’s race took place in 32-degree heat and 60 percent humidity and yet the fastest lap was ridden by the oldest man in the race.

Valentino Rossi, who very nearly won last year’s Malaysian GP and this year was only thwarted in his battle for third by Andrea Dovizioso’s rocket-ship Ducati, broke the four-year-old lap record by almost a second. And he was chuffed to bits.

“I feel good with the bike and I’m very happy to be strong here because physically this is the hardest race of season,” said the 40-year-old. “This time we worked well on tyre life, although you do a lot of the lap on the edge of the tyres here, so you stress the tyres more. Also we have a lack of speed, so when we fight with faster bikes it’s very difficult to manage. I was faster in the long corners, but on the straights Andrea could always repass me. I tried my maximum because there’s a big difference between finishing third and fourth.

“Maverick rode the race in the best way today, because with our bike when you are alone you can make your lines and make the difference in the corners, which is where our bike is strong. But when you fight with a bike that’s faster on the straights you cannot overtake in the corners.”

 

 

Bagnaia still using too much corner speed

Last year’s Moto2 world champion Pecco Bagnaia completed February’s three-day preseason test at Sepang second fastest, 0.063 seconds behind Danilo Petrucci and faster than Marc Márquez, Andrea Dovizioso, Fabio Quartararo and everyone else.

That performance had many people marking Bagnaia down as 2019 Rookie of the Year. But the 22-year-old goes into next week’s 2019 season finale at Valencia with less than a third of the points of Fabio Quartararo and only just ahead of embattled KTM rookie Miguel Oliveira. More importantly he’s hit the ground 13 times, putting him just behind Jack Miller and Johann Zarco at the top of the 2019 crasher’s league.
