Most village heads against ‘mudik’: Survey

first_imgA survey conducted by the Villages, Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration Ministry has revealed that most village heads across the country oppose this year’s Idul Fitri mudik (exodus) because of the COVID-19 pandemic.“The survey result shows that 89.75 percent of village heads disagree with their residents going on mudik at a time like this,” the ministry’s research and development agency head Ivanovich Agusta said on Tuesday, as quoted by kompas.com.The survey, held from April 10 to 12, involved 3,931 village heads and sought to understand their opinions about the upcoming mudik season during the Islamic holiday of Idul Fitri, which will occur this year in late May. He added that the survey also examined the villages’ preparedness to face the mudik over the next one or two months.Read also: COVID-19: Govt prohibits civil servants from going on on ‘mudik’Around 20 million people across the country travel to their hometowns in the annual tradition of mudik. Most of them come from the Greater Jakarta area, which has been the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.Public health experts argued that mudik could lead to massive COVID-19 contagion on the island of Java, where about 141 million people are living, as many regions have inadequate healthcare systems, particularly when compared to Jakarta.Despite the warning, the government has refused to enforce a ban on mudik “to prevent the economy from stopping altogether”, according to Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan.The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) has also attempted to discourage Indonesian Muslims from taking part in mudik from areas affected by the disease by labeling such an exodus haram – forbidden under Islamic law.

Financial infidelity causes more break-ups than sex

first_imgNZ Herald 6 July 2016Family First Comment: Interesting. “A 2013 study from Kansas University also found arguing about money is the top predictor of divorce, regardless of the couple’s income, debt or net worth.”Financial infidelity is replacing sexual infidelity as a leading cause of relationship breakdowns.It’s when people lie to their partners or deceive them about money, according to leading financial personal trainer, author and principal of financial advisers EnableMe, Hannah McQueen. She says financial infidelity is just as common in New Zealand.Recent research in the US (a 2016 Harris Poll study for the National Endowment for Financial Education and National Foundation for Credit Counselling) confirmed one in three spouses are guilty of financial infidelity – lying to their partner about what they earn, concealing or understating costs or debt ignored or hidden.A 2013 study from Kansas University also found arguing about money is the top predictor of divorce, regardless of the couple’s income, debt or net worth.READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/enableme/news/article.cfm?c_id=1504103&objectid=11668846Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Henry reflects on “scary few weeks”

first_imgIreland flanker Chris Henry has admitted he was terrified after suffering a mini stroke last month, but he feels “very lucky” to have had medical experts on hand so quickly. “It’s been a scary few weeks to be honest but I feel very lucky that I was in that environment and getting such incredible medical expertise so quickly,” he told Ulster’s official website. “They got to the bottom of things swiftly and I think that’s the most important thing; when something like that happens, the unknown is the scary thing and to have clarity on what was going on and having the problem fixed so quickly – for me, I feel very lucky.” At first it was thought he had suffered a severe migraine, but after four days of treatment at the St Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin the true cause was confirmed. Henry described the support he has received from the rugby community during the episode as “overwhelming”. Although Henry knows he will have to be patient during his recovery, he is back in training and already eyeing a spot at the World Cup next year. “I think that (the World Cup) is a realistic target,” he told the BBC. “In my mind, I want to be back by the end of this season. Whether that is pushing it too much, we’ll just have to wait and see.” He might be boosted by the fact his Ireland team-mate Richardt Strauss was similarly diagnosed with a hole in his heart in October 2013 and was able to play again three months later. Press Associationcenter_img A blocked blood vessel in the 30-year-old’s brain caused him to have a Transient Ischaemic Attack – or mini stroke – hours before Joe Schmidt’s men beat South Africa 29-15 on November 8. Henry was pulled out of the Test against the Springboks and it was then found he had a hole in his heart – which led to the mini stroke – but he is now on the comeback trail after having surgery on the organ last week. last_img read more

Rashid 16 – 1 – 47 – 1, B. Stokes 10 – 1 – 39 – 1. By Sudipto Ganguly | RAJKOT, India(Reuters)-Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara hit centuries and shared a stand of 209 to lead India to 319-4 in their first innings on the third day of the opening Test yesterday, trailing England by 218 runs.Local boy Pujara struck his ninth Test hundred before he was out for 124 while Vijay fell in the penultimate over of the day for 126 after his seventh century.India captain Virat Kohli was unbeaten on 26 after nightwatchman Amit Mishra fell without scoring in the last over bowled by left-arm spinner Zafar Ansari.It was a tough day for England’s attack. They toiled through a wicketless second session but picked up three after tea.The touring side, who posted a huge 537 in the first innings of the five-match series, made an early breakthrough after India had resumed on 63-0 when paceman Stuart Broad trapped Gautam Gambhir leg before with his first delivery of the morning.The left-hander missed a straight delivery from Broad, who is playing in his 100th Test, and was out for 29.Pujara joined Vijay at the crease and soon found his rhythm with some crisply driven boundaries.The 28-year-old Pujara, considered a specialist Test batsman, thrived against England’s spin bowlers but needed all of his defensive guile to negotiate a hostile spell from Chris Woakes when the fast bowler hit him three times on the helmet.Pujara scampered for a single off Woakes to get to three figures and the sparse crowd applauded.He was finally dismissed when he guided Ben Stokes to England captain Alastair Cook at slip.Vijay, who hit nine fours and four sixes, reached his century with two boundaries off Broad and put on 41 with Kohli for the third wicket.Broad should have had Vijay’s wicket when the batsman was dropped on 66 by 19-year-old debutant Haseeb Hameed as he dived to his left in the covers.Pujara was given out leg before off Ansari on 86 but overturned the umpire’s verdict through the Decision Review System (DRS) that is making its debut in a bilateral series in India. Reviews showed the ball was going over the stumps.Leg-spinner Adil Rashid got Vijay’s wicket when he was caught at short leg by Hameed.last_img read more

Malaysian GP: Verstappen Takes Victory; Hamilton Extends Championship Lead Despite Second-Placed Finish

first_imgSpeaking after his win, Max Verstappen said: “I think in the beginning, the car felt good and I saw Lewis was struggling a bit more with traction, so I used my battery a bit more. He has more to lose than me in terms of the championship. From then on, I could race my own race. It’s a very tough race and it was incredible to win.” Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo was third while Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas took fifth position after a poor race. Max Verstappen of Red Bull produced a dominant display to win the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday for his second career victory to mark his 20th birthday. Lewis Hamilton, who finished second also had his say. He said: “Big congratulations to Max. Happy birthday, he did a fantastic job today. The race was a tough one. They had the upper hand on us today. I feel good, but we have some work to do with the car. We didn’t have the pace this weekend. We have to keep pushing.” Hamilton’s title rival Sebastian Vettel recovered from the back of the grid to finish fourth and he now trails with 34 points with five races to go and a maximum of 125 points still available. Verstappen finished well ahead of Championship leader Lewis Hamilton but the British driver was able to extend his championship lead despite a second-placed finish.
